More Gifts from… SQUIRREL!

Squirrel!

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! This coming Monday in the U.S. is Memorial Day,¬†and many of us will have a much-needed 3-day weekend. And I am SO GLAD. This past week has been so hectic that I’m starting to feel like those dogs in the movie “UP.” So many distractions, and… oh look… SQUIRREL! ūüėĄ

More Gifts from Tres Chic

I’ve got 2 more gifts from the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round to show you today. The first is this fun and flirty dress from O V H. The Gisela dress is sized to fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, and there is also one called “fitt,” which I believe must be for¬†fitmesh¬†(someone please correct me if I’m wrong). The fabric is nicely textured in what looks like denim, and the tie around the waist is beautifully wrapped.

You can also pick up this super cute pose called The Pace of Nature from LW Poses. It includes the little squirrel prop, but since it is added separately, you could use the pose to hold other items. Mirrors and pose balls are also included.

There are so many gifts waiting for you at the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary round! You do need to join the Tres Chic group, but it is free to join. The birthday round ends on June 5th.

Do You Need a Manicure?

I know I do!

Hello Dave is one of my very favorite stores for keeping my pixel nails looking perfect, and they are also extremely generous with the group gifts. This week, owner Maia Gasparini has done something different; instead of a new palette for the group gift, just click on the pink and purple box to receive store credit (I *think* the credit amount is 125L, but since I’m not exactly sure how much I had before I clicked the box, I could be wrong!).

The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join but so worth it. New gifts are set out every week, on the average.

I used my credit to buy a mini palette called “Citrus Sorbet” for only 49L, and I’ll be back soon to spend the rest!

Have a wonderful weekend! ūüėÄ

Slip Into a Little Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello Fabulouses! ¬†Mondays………nothing a little shopping can’t fix! ¬†All you need to do is scoop up¬†a sexy, little red dress. ¬† The Ecce Bellus dress is a gorgeous, crimson frock crafted from crushed silk. ¬†Slender shoulder straps, a curve-hugging fit, and a daring slit in the skirt will draw all eyes your way. ¬† A low cut back provides a tantalizing glimpse of skin as it keeps you cool on a warm spring day. ¬†Best of all, the mini is completely free for members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group. ¬†All you have to do is switch to your Fab Free tag, teleport over the the Ecce Bellus shop, and give the board a tap. ¬†The gift also includes the free¬†coordinating Cassie Heels for Belleza and Slink High. ¬†The graceful T-Strap style sandals continue the flirty feel of my outfit all the way down to the tips of my toes.

IM Free and IM Fameshed

IM Free!

Hey, fabulous readers! A few weeks ago, I shared a group gift from a new store called I.M. Collection, and I mentioned that the group join fee was going to go from free to 50L. But guess what? It’s still free! And to celebrate the group getting up to 100 members, a special gift has been set out!

The 100 Member Gift includes linen trousers and a sexy, off-the-shoulder sweater, and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. You can find this gift by the stairs as you come in the door.

IM Accessorized!

Like Love, I also braved the lag at FaMESHed, and managed to pick up some amazing gifts! I do love me some purses, so I was thrilled to find this Tied Clutch from REIGN. It comes with a 25-color texture-change HUD, so it will surely match everything you wear. You can also click the back to resize.

My bangle bracelet is the gift from BREATHE, and it comes in white and black with gold trim. You can also click to bring up the resize menu.

The FaMESHed group is free to join. Check out the gifts Love shared here and here.

IM Manicured!

Finally, my manicure is the latest group gift from Hello Dave. The Hello Dave in-world group is 100L to join, but generous gifts are provided to members.

Aim For Wow

Aim For Wow 1

Hello Fab Free! ¬†Ripley and I continued our journey along The Flowerage Hunt 2’s prize trail. ¬†Even though he suffered some nasty scratches after our encounter with the clowder of felines (you can read about that adventure {HERE}), Ripley’s talented nose was still able to sniff out the female hunt gift at Sparrow by Design. ¬†¬†Hooray for tracking dogs! Sparrow by Design’s generous designer didn’t leave out the guys in The Flowerage Hunt 2. ¬†Carson blogged the male gift in his post {HERE}.

Sunshine On My Shoulders

The Emily dress features a halter-style neckline, and a pretty blue and green floral print splashed across a white background.  Its dark belt calls attention to your slender waistline, and a silver metal ring adds a pop of shine.  This summery frock left my shoulders free to feel the warmth of the spring sunshine, while the loop around my neck made sure the sleeveless dress stayed in place.  This little number is perfect for an afternoon of shopping, but with the right accessories, it is easily glammed up for a date night.  One nice feature is that the gift package includes a white, cropped, quilted jacket that you could add when the sun starts to set, and the air becomes a bit chilly.  Since it was a lovely, warm spring day, I opted not to wear it for my photo shoot, but I was comforted in knowing it was there should I need it.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (plus alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Aim For WOW 2

The Wow Factor

My Catwa mesh head applier is the May¬†gift for members of the Wow Skins group. ¬†With beautifully arched, dark eyebrows, and a clear, fresh complexion, this skin is flawless, and lovely. ¬†A HUD with 6 shades ranging from Milk to Caffe’ is included. ¬†I chose the Tan shade, and I just love the sweet, glowing finish on this skin. ¬†I experimented with eyeliner and lipstick appliers, and had terrific success, so if you are looking for a date-ready appearance, this applier works well with added make up for a glamorous touch. ¬†(In my pictures, I am wearing no make up). ¬†The WOW group costs 450L to join, but if you are already a member, I’d highly encourage you to scoop up this stunning group gift.

I Got a Peaceful Easy Feelin’

Happy Rez Day to Me!

Earlier in the week, I celebrated my 7th Rez Day by picking up a few gifts for myself from the Peace By Peace Hunt. This is a brand-new hunt produced by the same team that puts on the Peace on Earth Hunt each winter, although on a much smaller scale.

There are several lovely gifts to find on this hunt, including a few nice finds for the fellas (hey, Carson!). This sexy sundress is from Ghee and comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L (no alpha)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass

The Peace By Peace Hunt runs until May 31st. Each gift is 1L, and you’ll be looking for a teal-colored puzzle piece.

Have a peaceful rest of the weekend, fabulous readers! ūüôā

No Dogs Allowed?!

No Dogs?!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses! ¬†I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy it’s the weekend. ¬†Since Ripley and I had such great luck at the Country Girl Hunt (you can see my last post {HERE}), we decided to check out The Flowerage Hunt 2. It’s grid-wide, and runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time if you’d like to do some sleuthing of your own. ¬†You’ll be looking for a flower in a vase, and each hunt gift costs just 1L.¬† Our first stop was JLZ Fashion, and in no time at all, we discovered this sweetly feminine,¬†strappy mini dress.

Spring Beach

Perfect for the warm summer weather ahead, the Spring Beach frock is light and cheerful, with its all-over floral print. The soft colors and figure-hugging design will flatter any avatar.  I like the added detail of one strap dangling down on my right shoulder, which added a touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Sexy and sleek, this outfit made a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe collection.  A pair of dark sunglasses is also included in the hunt package, but since Ripley and I were strolling through a shady forest on the Peacehaven sim, I opted not to wear them for my photo.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL plus apha layer

About All the Cats…

As we explored the sim, Ripley and I came upon¬†a clowder of cats gathered around a couple of old fashioned milk cans. ¬†The little critters twined themselves around my legs, purring, and I scooped up one super-friendly white feline. ¬†Upon noticing my canine companion, however, a few of the cats froze, and hissed a warning. ¬†Ripley, always trying to be helpful, knocked over one of the galvanized containers, and milk trickled onto the ground. ¬†The cats happily lapped up the creamy spill, but as soon as the pupster tried to help himself to some of the proceeds, a fierce conflict ensued, ending with yelps and a scratched nose. ¬†Poor Ripley! ¬†So much for trying to be helpful! ¬†As we were taking our leave, two cats glared at Ripley, and pointed out the “No Dogs” sign. ¬†“It’s all right, Pal, you’ll always be MY best friend,” I consoled my sidekick. ¬†He wagged his tail happily, and we journeyed home, where I treated his battle scars.

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

The Meadow is Calling

The Meadow is Calling

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness today, and did some sleuthing in the Country Girl Hunt over at Brii Underground.  There are ten prizes up for grabs in this event, and each costs just one little linden dollar. The boxes even include accessories such as hats and footwear.

A Country Girl at Heart

The Keli dress is a charming shade of blue, and includes the ribboned hat, dress, and boots shown in my picture.  I love the white floral pattern sprinkled across the sleeveless frock, and the way it leaves my arms bare to soak up some sun.  The bow tied at the waistline echoes the ribbon on the hat, and provides a visual contrast to the remainder of the dress.  Blue, slouchy, high heeled boots, and thick, white socks round out the look, providing you with a complete ensemble from the crown of your head to the tips of your toes.  The package also contains Keli make up (not shown), an Omega Applier for the make up, and optional lights.  What a great bargain!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

Time to Continue the Round Up

Each of the ten hunt gifts is concealed in a small, brown, rearing horse.  If you click the hunt display on the wall at Brii Underground, you will receive a note card with helpful hints for tracking down the prizes.  With 9 more ponies to corral, Ripley and I had better get a move on.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Life is Uncertain……..Eat Dessert First

It's Time for Ice Cream

Hello there, Fabulouses! ¬†With warmer temperatures, I couldn’t resist stopping for a refreshingly delicious ice cream cone on my way home tonight. ¬†When I scooped her up for a cuddle, this adorable pup decided to sneak a sample from my cone for herself. ¬†The little rascal!

Vintage Vixen

Charlote, my pretty floral frock, is a group gift for VIP members from Furtacor. (updated landmark)  Until May 1st, this group costs nothing to join, so you can scoop up this strapless spring dress for free (after May Day, joining the VIP group will set you back 100L).  I love the vintage rose texture and the way the hem of the dress is flouncy and asymmetrical.   Packed with details such as vertical piping to draw the eye upward, and a pleated skirt, this little number is sure to become a summer favorite of mine.  The gift also includes a HUD with 25 textures (6 plain and 19 prints) to choose from.  The bodice and skirt can be the same pattern, or colored separately.

Sizes and Compatibility

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Texture change HUD

Add Some Glitter and Shine

To  accessorize my outfit, I tucked a pink rose behind my ear, and slipped on some chandelier-style earrings.  My Sparkle Rose was a bargain for only 30L at the Fukin Cute store on the Marketplace.  The package included a purple, a pink, and a white mesh rose.  I opted to wear just one, but you can add all three flowers if you wish.  With a bit of basic editing, I adjusted the position of the posey to fit just where I wanted.  My heart-shaped, dangling earrings from Elemental Earth Designs added more sparkle, and a playful touch of movement.  Versatile, texture change beads make this pair of earrings seem like a set of six in one for only 75L.

About the Puppy Eating Ice Cream…¬†

Shhhh! It's a Secret

I’m hoping that a certain canine someone doesn’t get upset by my solo ice cream escapade tonight. ¬†Back in his younger days, we used to stop at a local creamy stand on our way home from obedience class for the “Doggie Delight” special. ¬†(I wasn’t above a little bribery now and then). ¬†It must have worked, because we earned the “Most Improved” award at the end of the course. ¬† To make up for stopping without him, I’ll take Ripley out for a cool treat this weekend, but until then, can we keep this just between us?

Happy Shopping!

~ Kat and Ripley (that will be a DOUBLE Doggie Delight, please!)

It’s Easy Being Green

Sunflowers

Real life has been crazy busy for the past week! I really needed a chance to get out of my head for a while, so I took a ride in the fresh country air at Le Sixieme Sens. As you can see, the sunflowers are in full bloom, and nothing says “happy” like a field of sunflowers! ūüôā

Going Green

Earlier in the week, I was looking for a gift to show you when I accidentally stumbled into a new-to-me store called I.M. Collection. I never did find the gift I was originally looking for, but what I did find is just as good!

The I.M. Collection in-world group is free to join (for now), and there are 3 4 gifts on the wall Рone of which is this cute and comfy green ensemble. Belle includes the trousers and top and is sized for Maitreya and Slink (Physique and Hourglass) mesh bodies.

UPDATE: I just got a notice that the group fee will be raised from 0L to 50L very soon, so be sure you join quickly if you want to join for free!

I’m off to do a little more riding and relaxing. Have a wonderful weekend, fabulous readers!

Bunny Hop

bunny5_001ff

Happy Easter, fabulous readers!

I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend! I’m getting ready for the family to visit with this amazing party set from Aphrodite. I can’t wait to cut into that yummy chocolate cake, and… oh no, FINN! You naughty girl! Get down from there! ūüėģ

That silly dog, she just gets into everything, lol!

Dressed Up From Ears to Toes

I hopped over to Prism and picked up this festive, sexy mini dress. I love the old-fashioned Easter Bunny print, which reminds me a bit of Beatrix Potter. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • FITMESH XS – L with alpha
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

For what it’s worth, I found the Maitreya size to be a bit too large, so I opted to wear the FITMESH S instead. If you find that one size doesn’t fit you, try another!

Accessories for Busy Bunnies

So many more gifts to tell you about here!

  • My Cute Bunny Ears headband is a Marketplace dollarbie¬†from -LpOca-. There is no resizer, but you can do an old-school Edit > Stretch if you need to change the size.
  • The bunny makeup is a free Easter gift from Izzie’s. No group is required, just click to pay 0L. Appliers are included for Catwa, LOGO (Omega), and LeLutka Bento mesh heads, as well as tattoo layers for classic avatars. You can apply the eye makeup, whiskers (white or black), and lipstick separately, and a button to CLEAR is included for each (I love that!).
  • My necklace is a group gift from CHAIN. It comes in materials, materials + glow, and “regular” (for lack of a better term). A texture-change HUD with 8 metal colors is also included. To access the resize menu, just click on the necklace.
  • Last by not least, my nails are the latest Fab Free Group Gift from Hello Dave. There are not one, but THREE, FabFree gifts at Hello Dave, so hop on over and pop on your FabFree group tag to pick them all up! ūüėÄ

 

 

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone!
