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.

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*

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!

It’s Time to FFL! It’s Time for a Cure! It’s Time to make Harper Fly!!!

Time is running down fast, much much faster then we realize as I have piles of pics yet to process for posting, and so much shopping yet to do!! Shops I haven’t even had time to get to yet during Fashion For Life 2012 and there are only a few frantic hours left now. Time is running out for so many who are struggling to beat cancer, or waiting to hear news if they have it or not. The day before FFL 2012 began, I lost a beloved aunt to a long battle with breast cancer that had ravaged her body over the years. We’d planned to visit her this summer in Texas, we thought we had time, cancer proved us wrong. Just today, I learned my MiniMe’s best friends mother (a lady that we’ve lived next door to Sam’s whole life, who had a growth in her abdomen found, and immediately removed, during a routine exam just last week) is now being sent on to another hospital for further surgery because there is evidence of cancer. It’s time NOW to get over to FFL and help find a cure. Money from your purchases can still help researchers find a cure before another year passes, before we add even more stories of how this dreaded disease has touched our lives.

FFL 2012 Review - Agnes Finney

There just hasn’t been enough time to show all the things I’d hoped to show, to shop as much as I’d wanted to shop, to linger thru the sims making sure I don’t miss anything. There just isn’t enough time, not with so many goodies and so many great designs this year!! Here are just a couple more of my favorites. I love the flirty fun Buttefly dress from Agnes Finney, it gave me such a happy, made me anxious for summer and flowers and birds and of course, butterflies.

FFL 2012 Review - Zaara MockGacha2

Zaara, always, always a favorite designer I can blindly buy from and know I’ll be thrilled, has the Shyla blouse in lilac, and an exclusive FFL item (the Sanya Blouse in porcelain) up for offering, and both are must haves for every spring and summer wardrobe this year. Mock has some beautiful eye shadows in a donation Gacha that you’ll want to collect, and here are two of my favorites thrown on with one of my top Go To skins for a fresh new look.

FFL 2012 Review - Zaara MockGacha

Erratic, another fave store of much cuteness and sexiness offers up a few goodies too, the Katy Bustier in brown is a must have, sure to be worn again and again staple. I just love the zipper and the studs…paired with yet another Mock Gacha Shadow, I’m ready for dancing!

FFL 2012 Review - Erratic Mock

Nyte N Day, a fave of many over the years, is still churning out lovely and sexy clothing and has not disappointed with this years FFL items. The Crush shirt in Purple is perfect for spring afternoons out shopping and visiting. There were more faves, from Nyte n Day and so many others, but time just goes oh so fast.

FFL 2012 Review - Nyte N Day
