Got Your Goat

Huck Thought He Was a Dog

When I was a child I had a goat (I lived on a farm) that thought it was my dog. It followed me everywhere. I wanted a dog pretty badly then and wasn’t yet allowed to have one. So that goat was my favorite animal on the farm. At least until he grew horns and began to butt me! So I couldn’t help be enchanted by these little goats I ran across on this quaint little sim.

Speaking of quaint…

When was the last time you visited Snowpaws? They have a roomful of group gifts and free no group required Lucky Letter Boards and Mini Mania Boards. I won my outfit off one of the free Mini Mania Boards after slapping them all! And I came away with several new free outfits from the free Lucky Letter Boards as well. There are so many goodies to be had there! My outfit is fully mesh and comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Paired off.

I paired my new outfit with a pretty blue drop necklace from BricOle’s off the marketplace for only 30L. If you like this piece you might like some of their other items. Be sure to check out their online store for low price/high quality jewelry. I did discover that when I put the necklace on, I had to click the pendant and size it up (size up this prim only) to make it meet the black cord. But that was an easy fix to get such a pretty necklace at a such a deal.

We Could Be Royals

We Could Be Royals

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II may be my 10th cousin (twice removed), but I certainly don’t expect to be invited to the Palace for tea anytime soon.

Or ever.

But that certainly won’t keep me from having a royal fantasy in SL, especially when I can find such amazingly “luxe” items as these for free! 😀

Let Me Live That Fantasy

I started my royal fantasy with this gorgeous gown that I picked up as a free group gift at the ULTRA Event. Designed by Snowpaws, this silky dress comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. It has the big bow you see here on the front, as well as a petite bow and flexi-attachment-train in the back that goes swish-swish when you walk (not literally, of course). Both are detachable if you’d prefer a sleek, sexy look.

Head over to the ULTRA Event and join the free group to pick up ALL the gifts before the event closes on February 15th. More Fab Free posts about ULTRA:

 

We Could Be Royals

I’m In Love With Being Queen

Love and I were definitely on the same wavelength today because I also stopped by The Free Dove. I was looking for some jewelry to go with my gown and ran across this delicate pearl set called “Your Majesty” by new-to-me designer ~TEMPESTUOUS~.

But what really caught my eye was the matching free crown. A FREE CROWN! Who doesn’t need one of those, am I right? I, for one, absolutely needed one, for no reason other that it’s a crown. And free. And… hellooooo, FREE CROWN, LOL!

Anyway… the FREE CROWN is no-mod, but it does come with a resizer. Simply touch the crown, and when the blue box pops up, select “All Prims.” I only mention this because I accidentally selected “This Prim,” and… oops. Thankfully, I figured out what I had done before I made too much of a mess.

Well now, according to my diamond timepiece, it’s time for this royal to drive Cadillacs in her dreams and walk her tiger on a gold leash. 😉

I Found the “Escape Winter” Button

Coming Home

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses! After all that winter weather, and the tiff between Ripley and Baloo, I decided a vacation to a tropical climate was in order.  Rip and I packed our bags, and jetted off to this Italian villa.  No polar bears, no rain, no snow, just warm sunshine and gentle breezes.

She’s Got a Brand New Dress And She’s Ready to Shine

Of course, a balmy location called for a new outfit to celebrate, and lucky for me, Carrie Snowpaw has generously set out this gorgeous, halter-style frock as an exclusive free gift for Fab Free Group members. The Segalle Halter dress features a soft blue, floral pattern and hugs all your curves.  I love the detailing of the delicate ring and neck ribbon (for a better view, check out my close up picture below).  It also includes sexy side slits, which offer a tantalizing glimpse of thigh.  You can’t see them due to the angle of my photo, but they are a really sweet touch. To add Segalle to your inventory, simply teleport over to Snowpaws, activate your Fab Free Group tag (as always, the Fab Free Group is completely free to join), and tap the gift board.  Then, you too, will be ready for a mid-winter get away to someplace warm and sunny.

Finishing Touches

To accessorize my outfit, I scoured the Marketplace, and came upon these silver Triple Loop earrings from Vextra Co.  I wanted baubles that would provide a welcome touch of glimmer, yet still be simple enough to let the beauty of my dress take center stage.  These hoops fit the bill perfectly. Since their price tag was only 9L, I still have plenty of jingle in my purse to bring home a collection of souvenirs from our journey, and keep a certain someone well-supplied with Ripley snacks.

I Hear the Beach Calling My Name

Floating on the summery breeze, I can just barely make out the lapping waves of the ocean, inviting Ripley and I to wander along the shore, collect sea shells, and play fetch-the-stick.  Until my next post, Fabulous Readers, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
