Easy Silence

Easy Silence

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  Ripey and I are enjoying the easy silence at Borneo Isle while we tell you about two free group gifts to get your weekend off to a fantastic start.  I think you’ll love both of them as much as I do.

Free Tresses

My loosely braided locks, called Tori, are the latest free group gift from Truth Hair for VIP members.  With a full fatpack of all colors, plus a stylist HUD, you have so many options to choose from.  Featuring long, side-swept bangs that frame each side of your face, this soft, casual hairstyle is ideal for a day of relaxing by the shore.   Although the Truth VIP group has a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks generously gifts members with a full fat-pack of a hairstyle each month.  In addition, the group chat is quite active and friendly, and I’ve picked up a number of tips and pointers.   I really look forward to reading the chat messages each day.

Casual Summer Stylin’

At Rowena’s Designs, I scooped up this adorable Angie crop top and belted shorts outfit, which is a free gift for the Maitreya Gifts, Sales and News Group.  With a floral print, spaghetti style straps, and a loosely flowing hemline, this top is sure to be a summer staple in my wardrobe from now on.  I opted for a charcoal print and black shorts, but the gift includes a color change HUD for both the top and shorts with 6 hues ranging from green, red, blue, purple, and brown as well as the black.  The shorts feature a buckled strap on the sides and a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  The snug fit of the shorts contrasts beautifully with the ruffled top.  The MGSN Group has no join fee, so you can add this cute set to your inventory completely for free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

A Slight Navigational Mishap

Wrong Turn

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to head to another beach to continue enjoying our long weekend, but, sadly, his navigational skills are not quite up to par with his fantastic nose.  We got hopelessly lost after a wrong turn, and while trying to find the correct route, ran out of gas.  Well, if I have to be sidelined, at least I can be stranded in style…

Free Shorts?  Count Me In!

Before leading us down the wrong path somewhere along the way, Ripley sniffed out a great find at the [WellMade] in world store, so I can’t be too upset with him for his co-piloting abilities.  In addition to ten other free gifts for WellMade group members, the generous designer has set out these cuffed Natallie shorts for free.  Best of all, the WellMade group is completely free to join.  Adorned with two columns of triple buttons, the shorts fit my Maitreya mesh body perfectly.  The gift package includes a color change HUD that enables you two choose between this deep crimson shade and a navy blue hue.  If you don’t have a group slot available, you can also pick up these summertime staples at the [WellMade] Marketplace shop for only 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Textures and Colors Galore

Back when The Cart Wash Sale was in full swing, I blogged about a cute little white Babado top in my post {HERE}.  Since that time, Bacidalucia Oh has created a new version which includes a HUD enabling you to select one of four texture options and 18 color choices.  To coordinate with my shorts, I opted for a deep red shade with the first of the four background prints, but there are so many other available combinations….all for only 49L.  You get the same off the shoulder fit, and softly draped fabric, finished with ric-rack trim as the original, with multiple options for customization.  To add this cropped top to your inventory, teleport over to the Baci shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

A Trail of Ripley Snacks

Instead of handing a map to my hound with a nose for fashion, I probably would have been better off leaving a trail of Ripley snacks to follow, kind of Hansel and Gretel style.  Live and learn, I guess…  Now, do any of you wonderful readers have a gallon of gas you can spare? 😉 Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dreams are Made of Sun and Sand

Beach Pup

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I once again returned to our favorite place to relax and rejuvenate……..the beach!  With the salty sea air, the cries of the gulls, and the crashing of waves floating on the warm summer breeze, I couldn’t have found a better spot than the NorderNey sim.

A Festival Find

The pupster and I decided to check out the Okinawa Summer Festival, and scooped up this free halterneck bikini top with a bold geometric print.  I really like the way the black bands contrast with the muted yellow, orange, white and blue tones of the pattern.  The gift also includes a coordinating bikini bottom, but I chose to cover up with black capris.  This swimwear set is completely free at the M*Motion shop at the festival, and includes a bikini top, bottom, and an inner applier HUD for the Maitreya mesh body only.

Black Rose

Studded Summer Sandals

My footwear today is another free gift, this time for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented designer at BlackRose Fashion used salmon colored leather capped with black gleaming gemstone accents set in gold toned metal to craft this lovely pair of summery shoes  A slender golden chain with a dangling bead fasten the sandals to your feet.  Constructed to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet, the flat sandals offer the tan sole I chose to wear for my picture or a black version.  They work really well for my casual outfit, but I think they also would pair nicely with a more dressy look.

The Weekend is in Sight!

I’m looking forward to a long weekend to celebrate my real life birthday.  I’ll be 25 (again – a wonderful age to stay, don’t you think?), so I plan to enjoy some yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting, indulge in some shopping, and just take it easy.  It will be wonderful!  I hope you have some time with family and friends, too.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley – save a chocolate frosting free cupcake for me, please!)

I See You Eyeing My Coffee!

I "Sea" You Eyeing My Coffee!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I escaped to NorderNey today for a morning walk along the shore, and Mr. Gully, here, thought I brought my iced coffee for him.  Silly bird!  Even the pupster knows better than to get between this girl and her java first thing in the morning.  Although it might not look like it in the photo, I was ready to make some Kat-The-Desert-Girl-Ninja moves to rescue my cup, if need be.

Sweet Skirt For a Mini Price

Since it’s currently a promo gift at the Fax Marketplace shop, the cute mini skirt I am wearing in my snapshot cost just one Linden dollar.  It features a curve-hugging waistline tied with pink laces, and a flared hem that offers a comfortable fit.  In real life, I love to wear just this soft shade of green, so when I saw it on the marketplace, I knew it was destined for my SL inventory.  I chose to pair the Lara skirt with a full perm cropped tank top, which I was able to tint a matching shade.  I used the “Show Color Under Cursor” command in the Developer menu to help me match the RGB in the top to that of the skirt, so it was easy to create a coordinated outfit.  I think they go together beautifully!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh
  • Mesh (I did not see an alpha layer in the package)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Side-swept

My new, free hairstyle is a Hair Fair gift from [elikatira].  My first time going through the fair, I completely missed this giftie because the display said simply “Color Demo” and I didn’t realize the little gem that was contained inside this gift box.  With side-swept bangs and long tresses draped over my left shoulder, this new ‘do fit my style perfectly.  It contains nine color HUDs packed with all textures [elikatira] offers, and, best of all, was completely free at the Hair Fair shop.  When you navigate to the store, the gift is located on the floor in the right hand corner.  Simply click the display and buy it for 0L.

Help Me, I’m Melting!

It’s another super warm day where I am in RL (116 degrees Fahrenheit – “HOT”! according to Siri), and I am trying my best to stay cool.  It’s a good thing I don’t have to worry about high temperatures in SL.  I can run the AC in real life, and while away the hours in complete comfort.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hey there Fabulouses!

Need a sweet glam ride?

I found this awesome gold trimmed pink airplane as a free group gift at Belle Epoque! This is a wearable item that allows you to move around in it and fly if you like.  It also has airplane sounds.  Too cute to pass up for a 10L group join fee!

ENJOY!

Punk Rock Girl

A Tale of Two Cats

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the hunt trail again.  This time, the pupster and I sought out little white skulls during the Brii Underground Punk Rock Girl Hunt.  Each of the ten punk rock themed prizes in this hunt cost 1L and feature a complete outfit.   At the landing point, there is a board which displays the variety of hunt gifts and also a hint giver, which I found very useful.

Punk’s Not Dead…

…at least that’s what the Lokele t shirt claims.  The black side-knotted top features a gray, guitar-wielding skeleton, which definitely gives the shirt an edgy feel.  The asymmetrical, cropped hemline provides a sexy glimpse of your tummy.  Gray and black plaid capris with white stitching and riveted pockets coordinate beautifully with the theme of the outfit.  To wrap it all up, flat black sneakers with dark gray socks complete the look.  Quite a bit of care was taken with the amount of detail in these shoes, from the suede texture with white stitching, and the untied laces, to the herringbone-patterned soles.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh pants in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Mesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layers for top and shorts for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh pants in S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Omega Lokele Make Up Catwa Head Jessica (not worn in my photo)

A New Multi Hue Updo

The edgy feel of my new outfit called for a different style hair than my usual, and the Zoe updo from EscalateD fit the bill perfectly. Completely free to Fab Free group members, this hairstyle features long tresses gathered in a large bun at the back of your head.  A few wispy strands dangle realistically down near your ears and the back of your neck.  The dark ebony hue of the hairstyle is brightened by highlights which provide vibrant pops of color.  A texture change HUD allows you to customize the base color and streak color of the highlights, offering a range of 15 colors across the rainbow spectrum.  I decided to use purple tinted eye shadow to play off the streaks in my hair.  It’s not a look I’d wear every day, but it made for a fun change up!

Ripley and I will return soon with another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
