It’s Friday, I’m in Love

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! And what a crazy, bizarre week this has been! The “highlight” of my week was accidentally tossing my cell phone in the washer with a load of laundry. GAAAH! My poor baby is dead, but at least she smells good. 😥

To cheer myself up, I grabbed Finn and headed over to Summer Trace for a relaxing walk in the sun. Finn had a grand old time chasing the birds (which she never caught), and I enjoyed the pretty flowers and ocean breeze. Ahhhh.

Dressed Up to the Eyes

My dress is the latest Fab Free group gift from No Cabide. The Jayne Mini Dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP

You also get an amazing texture-change HUD which includes 10 dress fabrics, as well as 10 strap textures. To grab your gift, activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag and pop on over to No Cabide.

To See Your Shoes and Your Spirits Rise

Continuing my Friday theme… my cute flats happen to be from fri.day! The Bebe Flats (in peachy) are only 50L today for Fifty Linden Friday and are sized for Slink and Maitreya mesh feet. I love the detailed stitching and pretty, feminine bows. 🙂

While you are there, be sure to have a look around the store. Fri.day is having their Semi-Annual Sale from March 3-10, and everything in the store is 50% off (excluding gachas and gift cards). This is a great time to stock up on shoes for spring!

Here’s to a calm, stress-free weekend! 😎

Cherries on Top

Cherries on Top

Hello, fabulous readers! Since my last post, I’ve been busy searching the PurpleMoon store for the awesome gifts in their Cherries on Top Hunt 6 – and boy am I tired! Thankfully this cute cafe at Paris Je T’aime was still open so I could grab an iced coffee and rejuvenate. 😎

Ten delicious slices of chocolate cake – each containing a gorgeous, free prize – have been hidden around the PurpleMoon and Wetcat main stores. The Rules:

  • This hunt is free and open to the public (no group membership required).
  • The object you are looking for is a SLICE OF CAKE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP (like the sample located at the entrance).
  • To receive the gift, simple touch the cake. You will be given an object that can be worn to unpack.
  • The prizes have funny names – no area search allowed!
  • There are no hints given, as all gifts are in plain sight. Very easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.
  • The prizes have been hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the MAIN STORE (9 of them). Not upstairs. There is one extra prize to be found at Wetcat main store. The balloon decorations are an indicator that there are some cherry cakes hidden in that room!
  • It is MANDATORY to HAVE FUN!

Cherries on Top

In addition to the lovely clothing items from PurpleMoon, there is also a gift from Wetcat containing 3 cute poses with a heart balloon. I’m showing one of them here. ❤

The clothing items come in the following sizes:Cherries on Top

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layer (PJs are only in these sizes)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara (some include the autohide)
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Sandals are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Since I was showing so much skin in the second outfit, I decided to add this pretty heart and butterfly tattoo, which is a group gift from Nanika (free to join). It comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars. FYI: there are several other gifts available on the group lucky boards.

This isn’t a difficult hunt – since the hunt objects are hidden “in plain sight” – but I’ll admit that it did take me a while to complete (I think some of the hunt objects didn’t rez because the sim was very full). And believe me, they are NOT kidding about the “area search” thing. Don’t even waste your time searching for “cherries” because you will wind up on a wild goose chase looking for decoys. Yes… I tried it (/me hangs head in shame). 😳

Cherries on Top

PurpleMoon’s Cherries on Top Hunt 6 ends on February 28th, so HURRY on over to collect ALL the prizes. 😀

High Tides And Good Vibes

High Tides n Good Vibes

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  After my last post {HERE}, Ripley and I returned to Brii Underground’s Surf Girl Hunt and did some more sleuthing.  As a youngster, I loved collecting seashells, and this hunt revived childhood memories of trips to the shore with my family.  Under my parents’ watchful eyes, I would traipse up and down the beach, plastic pail in hand, gathering my briny “treasures.”

A Casual Outfit You Will Treasure

After I pried open the clam shell from Brii Underground, I uncovered the Leidiane Beach Outfit, which was perfect for a day of beach combing.  A pair of denim shorts and an island themed, cropped t-shirt, complete with palm trees, gulls, and crashing waves form the basis of the costume.  To ward off the brisk ocean breezes, a dark blue, plaid over shirt completes the look.  This is definitely the type of clothing I would choose for a weekend get away in real life – comfortable and carefree.  Since I have a habit of wading out into the water to gather the perfect mollusk for my collection, I chose to slip on flip flops rather than the light blue platform sneakers which are part of the hunt gift.  For only 1 little Linden dollar, you get a complete look packed inside that tiny shell!

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh outfits for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Leidiane Platform Sneakers (not shown)
  • Omega applier with make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light (not shown)

Sadly, those precious days with my parents are now only in the past.  Lost in memories and nostalgia as I listened to the crashing ocean waves, I was glad to have my loyal pupster by my side.  When I am feeling blue, there is no greater comfort than the silent, devoted companionship of my sweet boy.  Until my next post, fabulous readers, happy shopping hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)
