Skin Fair 2013: On the Right Paige, with Rockberry

The time is running out quickly for Skin Fair 2013 and you know you do not want to miss it, so head on over there as soon as you can. There are two sims full of stores with all sorts of skin yumminess, there is sure to be something you’ll love.

Catty - Rockberry 2G

One of the skins I discovered at Skin Fair, and love bunches is the newest Rockberry, Paige. Shown here is the natural tone (you can choose between four tones), and two of my most favorite make ups, but I couldn’t decide on another to show, so I decided to give you a glimpse of them all. Paige comes in twelve make up options per skin tone. You can choose just one at a very afforable price, or buy the whole pack for your best value, and you surely won’t be disappointed. You also will get tattoo layers for black and brown eyebrows, as well as freckles too. You also get the option of cleavage, or not, on the skin itself which is always nice as you wont be losing important things at the wrong time!

Catty - Rockberry 1L

Also shown here, are some new eyes from Mayfly which I love. They are mesh and come with assorted white options, and you can size them too to fit most any AV. Pose Fair 2013 starts too this weekend, and here I give you a teaser of some fun new poses from HelaMiyo. Pose Fair runs for about two weeks so you’ve plenty of time to get there after you shop skin fair, but I’ve given the link to HelaMiyo here as I know you’ll want to grab these poses up quick too, and it has just opened.

Skin Fair 2013: Falling in Love With all of Elyse

Skin Fair 2013 is here!!!!! Well, I’m slow, and I had some PC issues, which..I hope is resolved now, so I’m a bit late, Skin Fair 2013 actually began last week, but the good news is it runs thru March so you still have plenty of time to get over there and get shopping!!!!

Catty Tuli1 - Elyse

Tuli has once again done what she does and created a new, lovely skin which I know will be among my favorites in the future. One word of warning tho..if you are not already a Tuli fan, you will be after trying this skin! Elyse has so many options, you’ll spend weeks wearing different ones. You have a choice of three tones: Pearl, Power and Petal (shown here is Petal), tho I love them all. Each tone comes in 4 eyebrow options (Brown, Blond, Black and Red) and if that isn’t enough, each comes with the option of dimples!! Cleavage you ask? You get two options of cleavage with each for getting your look just right with your outfits and all that. Now, about the all important make up options…you do the math, I’ll give the facts here, I’ve no idea how many variations you end up with. Each tone is available in two make up packs…Sultry and Elementary. Each of these comes in five eye make up options (one for each brow color, and each with, or without, dimples). Tuli did not forget the lips, oh no she did not! With each pack you get thirty lip options! Yes, I said 30! There are three lip tones: Intense, Deviant and Sheer, each with five colors, and each of those comes in Gloss, or No Gloss option.

Catty Tuli2 - Elyse

Whew..that was exhausting! How many variations of Elyse did you come up with? Not enough for you in there? More good news! Tuli has Lolas Tangos Appliers available too for all the tones! as well as many more skins available at Skin Fair!! Get on over now and check them out, try the demos, fall in love with Elyse and sooo much more worth falling in love with at Skin Fair 2013! Stay tuned for more glimpses into what you can find this year. Happy skin shopping!

Catty- LOTD Elyse

Oh, and even more good news – as we are already a week into Skin Fair, the lag should now be manageable! However, you should still dress down appropriately, as always, in attending any event where there is much shopping to do. Remember, prioritize! Priority One is seeing all that is there to see, and getting around it all to see it, AND buying all there that you want! You can dress up after shopping, in all the new skins you’ve bought!

A Little Global Domination, A Little Exile

You’ve just three days left for Global Domination!!! This very entertaining event ends on Thursday, and I highly recommend it if you enjoy hunt and puzzles. Do not get me wrong tho, this is NOT a hunt, tho some hunting is involved. It took me about three days of off-and-on back-and-forth grid-hopping and thinking and making all kinds of notes to figure it out, along with a little eavesdropping of the Hint Group. It’s the most fun I’ve had doing a hunt/grid hopping type thing in ages, and Kudos to the organizers of this event, and I hope they do more! I’m showing here just three of the many wonderful prizes (for more peeks, see Global Domination ).

Global Domination in Exile

I love the Global Domination Prize gown from Indrya Originals, it comes in two color options, with two sets of coordinating jewelry, also shown here. I’m sure I’ll be wearing this thru spring and into summer, and even these late dreary winter days when spring fever is beginning to take root. Pilot offers up for a prize this very versatile stage, complete with a variety of poses to use, however, I chose to use the poses from aDORKable, also a Global Domination prize for completing the game. I love this Exile hair, Loveshack, available at My Attic @ The Deck thru this week also, and I even opted to wear a different color for a change. I’m still loving this Zoe skin too, from Tuli, make sure grab it also while you’re over at My Attic @ The Deck before its gone. You’ve much to do to keep you busy for the rest of this month, so don’t delay or you’ll be sorry you missed out on all the fun and bargains!!

My Attic : Tuli and the Loveshack

If you haven’t heard the news by now, you do need to get out shopping! I suggest you start today at The Deck’s latest round of My Attic, a great sale event that occurs every couple of months with offerings from several of the most talented designers on the grid. When you go for this round, the first thing to look for is this gorgeous new Tuli skin!! Yes, you heard me right, Tuli is back!! She’s been back awhile now, and I’ll be showing you some of her other newness soon, but for today, I just had to show you Zoe, an old favorite of mine, and I was so happy that not only was Tuli back, but she’s bringing back some faves as well as introducing us to new delights!

Catty Pop

At this round of My Attic, the theme is Pop Music, and you’ll find many goodies all priced at 95L, how good is that? One must have is this great new updo from Exile, appropriately named “Loveshack”. There are many other things all of us shoppers and pop music lovers need there, from clothing to photosets to poses, so hurry on over and see what goodies you can find. I’ll be going back for sure!

Look of the Day : An Afternoon in Shades of Grey

Just a quick post for a look I loved that I threw together a few days back when my significant other decided to whisk me off dancing one afternoon.

LOTD

One of my all time favorite mesh skirts is from The Secret Store, I love its great fit and shaping. I paired it with this shirt from Amarelo Manga. I’m new to Amarelo Manga and am loving their clothes so you’ll be seeing more here I’m sure, and this shirt is one of my faves I know I’ll be wearing often, both with skirts and jeans. Maxi Gossamer and Bamboo Nails never fail to complete my looks, and Elikatira hair often finds it’s way to my head, much as this recent one has.

Top of the World

Now, time for more shopping, so many sales on this weekend, and so much to catch up on yet for photos, purchases and gifts from Valentine’s weekend, I’ll be keeping busy for weeks I’m sure! *Waves a Farewell for now and goes off to sort thru the piles*

New Releases & Hunts: Love Me Tender

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with all the pinks and reds everywhere, I felt inspired to do some festive photos. I started with a dress and leggings set from PurpleMoon, made for the Cupids Arrow hunt and a fun outfit for a casual day hanging out with my man. I’ll let you in on a little secret too, there is Cherry Hunt happening over there at PurpleMoon, don’t miss it, you’ll find lots of goodies.

LoveMeTender2

I added the new Maxi Gossamer Khaleesi set to it, which comes in a variety of color combinations, so you’ll be sure to find one that works for your outfit of the day too, get it now while its on sale at Collabor88. I just can’t keep up with all Maxi Gossamer’s releases lately, every one is a must have that finds its way to my inventory! I also grabbed my Go-To Nails from Bamboo, each set comes in 5 colors/patterns, I’ve several and love them all, I chose a silvery white for this look to brighten things up a bit.

LoveMeTender1

New for me here too, are the Doro shoes from Redgrave which come with a 12 colors all in one Hud (including two metal colors), that offers countless options for your outfit matching. I’m sure I’ll be wearing these lots with various outfits. They are a great value for the quality, I know I’ll be getting at least a couple more styles there soon.

Love Me Tender

Once I was dressed for the day, the man of my life swept me off to a beautiful sim for some dancing at a lovely waterfall he found. He is so sweet, knowing I love waterfalls, he has made it his mission to take me dancing at every waterfall on the grid! Now, time to go work on the next look and post! See you at a waterfall or shopping soon, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

New Releases : Dancing with Emma from Entre Mares

Entre Mares has released a stunning new gown, Emma, that will be sure to heat up your cold winter nights when you go out (or stay in) dancing.

EM Emma Full

If you have a special date night coming up and you want to turn the heat up and aren’t sure what to wear, head on over to Entre Mares, you’re sure to find something there that will be just perfect for your evening. The new Emma will certainly fit that order, it is available in blue as shown, as well as a black, purple and yellow. It is lacy and delicate, and yes, it does cover all the necessary parts that need covering. The bits and parts are all well made, and the flex is just right for twirling on the dance floor.

EM Emma Couple

For my night out with my special man, I chose a favorite updo from Truth, and a favorite pair of heels from N-Core. I also chose a favorite diamond set from Alyssa Bijoux, always a great classic to wear on any formal occasion. Add to that, my most fave nails, from Bamboo, in a silvery color to match my shoes and jewelry, and I am good to go be dazzling on the arms of my dazzling man.

EM Emma Dance

Now, no more delay, rush over and grab this gown and the other things, and ..I’m off to do some more blogging and dancing, see you soon!!!

Look of the Day – Ilaya, Bamboo Nails and Maxi Gossamer

We are well in to the New Year, and it’s high time I do some blogging.  A few things have me excited that I want to blog about, including this look, inspired by the recent weather…icey! Watch for post coming up devoted to this amazing skin by Sachi!!!, but for today however, I want to talk about other things.

Catty

Ilaya has made this very fun dress, with a bit of retro feel, in mesh, and I love it.  It comes in a few other shades too, and definitely worth grabbing for your closet. I like the monotone look, great to mix and match with various things.   Maxi Gossamer just keeps on creating more jewelry we all must have.  For this look, I chose the bangles which are available at the current round of Collabor88, and the earrings, are part of a set from the current FaMESHed, which ends soon so hurry on over and get them while you can. I also want to mention these prim nails, from Bamboo Nails. I simply love them!  They are the most easy-to-apply-and-adjust system I have come across yet. With the Hud, you can change both size and length, as well as colors , based on which set you have of course.  These nails are definitly worth a try whether you have been avoiding prim nails, or love them.

Catty

One can never have enough poses, and these used here are new from Ovation Poses.   I simply threw them in my main Tillie’s stand, and they are good to go.  Well, that’s it for this time, now back to more shopping and wandering and dancing!  Stay Warm!

Catty Goes to the Ball

I’ve recently taken up a new pastime in SL, dancing. Specifically, going out with a special someone and exploring dance places and live music venues. I’ve never been much of a party or club hopper in SL, I’ve preferred the smaller spontaneous gatherings we in the HG Group sometimes have at stores, homes, etc, even the ones we have in the chat group sometimes (the coffee and various other beverages are always flowing in there!)

Stardust Catty

Lately however, I’ve had reason, and many occasion, to venture out to formal dance places, which of course means, formal dancewear…and since this is new to me, it’s meant a lot of shopping and inventory expansion. New gowns, new shoes, new jewelry and even new hair! One dress I was more then happy with, is from Sascha’s Design. (Special thanks to Harper! Love you!) I’m not sure anyone equals Sascha Frangelli’s skill when it comes to creating floof, and wearing it is sure to make any girl feel like Cinderella going to the ball with Prince Charming. To top it off I found an updo from Exile that worked perfectly, with it’s tendril of curls that don’t quite all fit in the bun, and a recent jewelry release from Maxi Gossamer.

Stardust Dance

So many new things to discover in SL! It’s been so fun, and I look forward to sharing more new finds and loves. See you on a dance floor in SL soon!!

To Elate, or not To Elate!

The answer…simply is….to Elate!!
I always look forward to Friday in SL, a day a few new sale items appear at different places. Today did not disappoint. Elate delighted me with a new dress, and new earrings! Both which I had to grab up immediately and do a quick (by Catty standards, that means published by Monday) post.

Elate

Mesh clothing is gradually taking hold of me, and this new dress Kellie Iwish has out has been added to my list of must have mesh. It’s cute and fits so well, perfect for fall days. The alpha layer needs a tad of adjusting for my shape, but it does come with 3 options too for that so hopefully you’ll find one that works for your shape. I love the earrings too that Kellie also has out new, I am sure they will be very well worn in the future, I love a big hoop! I threw on a fave pair of boots from Maitreya, also mesh, along with my Go To skin of late, Cassiopea from Glam Affair, and I was set for some shopping and visiting, and even some dancing. That’s all for this quickie..and it’s even done and still Friday!!! Yay me! *waves* See you soon!
