“Don’t save something for a special occasion. Every day of your life is a special occasion.” ~ Thomas S. Monson

Special Occasion—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 7

With all the snow-covered sims and sleighs and jingle bells, it’s hard to remember that a majority of the world does not celebrate a white Christmas, especially if you’re from the cold and wintery North as I am. Truth is, most enjoy their holiday with sunshine outside and the doors open or the AC on.

Somnia Snowpaw’s beautiful gift for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is a reminder that some girls go to holiday parties in pretty dresses that are not velvet but cool cotton and in this case, open in the back. I love this dress template and Somnia has done something very special with it with this dress. Having a floral pattern on the skirt with a beautifully shaded top, it’s a gorgeous gift.

My shoes are Eudora 3D’s latest for Uber and a gorgeous pair with a texture change HUD with the lovely paisley pattern in black, brown or white on a texture-change HUD. It’s a perfect match for this lovely dress.

Special Occasion—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 7

Every day the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar has been issuing two gifts—one for anyone and one specifically for KittyCatS lovers but today there is a double bonus for everyone. Sawsan Secretspy has created this gorgeous skin as a gift for the calendar. With beautifully lined eyes and a pink shadow plus a neutral lipstick, the skin is a beautiful gift for any day of the season but it looks especially perfect with Somnia’s dress! Queue Marlowe’s new ‘do with a curly ponytail brought around to the side and bangs in front.

I Wanna Hold Your Hand

I Wanna Hold Your Hand

Yeah, you’ve got that something
I think you’ll understand
When I’ll say that something
I wanna hold your hand

~ “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” by the Beatles

I Wanna Hold Your Hand

A darling Beatles tune is what I found for this darling look from the latest events. First a top from crisshoney Violet, a simple draped top with cherry blossom stems for the Boho Culture Fair. Then pants for men or women from Nix Marabana that she is offering in several colors at Genre. My great wedged sandals are Eudora3D’s featured item at the Vintage & Cool Fair (with texture change HUD for almost every detail you can think of). And my necklace is a lovely feature from Hannah Daviau, 75% of which goes to proceeds for the EB Awareness Event.

I Wanna Hold Your Hand

Ikira Frimon is offering this great sexy long ‘do with bangs and an extensive texture change HUD at Body Modification Expo. And Ms. Shyla Diggs has created an exquisite set of new skins being offered at her store. Most of the big events (except the EB Awareness Event, which is just opening today) are closing this weekend so get there now to find these lovely pieces.

True Blue

True Blue

True blue, your silent cry
And I can see it and I want to touch you
Please, cause no one sleeps
True blue is breaking the waves
I used to know all the gates of love
And all the love was streaming through you

~ “Eclipse Blue” by Nosaj Thing

True Blue

I put together this true blue outfit because I just loved all the elements and wanted to wear something that made me feel good. Start with this open-necked chambray blouse from Julliette Westerberg, who has a fine grasp of mesh rigging and clothing with great textures and fashion. Add my favorite jeans from Paul Lapointe that come with a texture-change HUD for the jeans and the belt. I ran over to Jewelry Fair and found that RealEvil was there with some fabulous mesh jewelry. The necklace I show has texture change for the metal and all three layers of feathers, so it’s versatile and really nicely made.

True Blue

I brought out this gorgeous skin from Inka Mexicola again. Gosh it’s beautiful. I LOVE the eye makeup, especially with this whole look. (The next blog I am going to be showing Inka’s skin with the Belleza body. Think it won’t work? It does!) My gorgeous ponytail is one of Truth Hawks’ newer ‘dos. I am true to blue, true blue.

C’mon, Kitty, Light My Fire(storm)

C’mon, Kitty, Light My Fire(storm)

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
[Kitty], we couldn’t get much higher

~ “Light My Fire” by Jim Morrison

C'mon, Kitty, Light My Fire(storm)!

When Callie told me they were going to be making a special KittyCatS kitty this year for the Firestorm 4th Birthday, I was really excited. Last year Firestorm gave away a commemorative KittyCat also to any and all of SL who wanted one to celebrate 3 years!  This year, a new collectible “FireBall” KittyCat is offered grid wide for everyone to join in the 4th year Firestorm celebration.

This FireBall is functional and interactive!  You can cuddle it, play with it and interact with it as you would any regular KittyCat EXCEPT you don’t have to feed it (it comes as a Perma-Pet™). It’s also been spayed/fixed for you (meaning you can’t breed with this KittyCat).  So this is not a mesh statue cat; it’s a cute little pet you can carry, have walk with you, have sleep in your home, cuddle with you next to the fire and so much more! The birthday hat and collar are removable through their clever menu, so you can dress the KittyCat up or down.

C'mon, Kitty, Light My Fire(storm)!

Callie shared a large statue version with me to give you all a sneak peek and the regular sized cat. She also showed me the little FireBall bed made by Barnesworth Anubis that is included, so your KittyCat has a place to rest.

As an aside let’s congratulate Jessica Lyon and her team for taking on a monumental task these past four years. Needless to say, the SL community is not exactly the cheeriest bunch and the Firestorm people keep feeding us improvements for a great SL experience without charging us a penny. Give them a hand! Or a paw!

C'mon, Kitty, Light My Fire(storm)!

Featuring the “Fireball,” the FREE functional KittyCatS kitten, the celebratory mascot for the Firestorm 4th Birthday Celebrations. Make sure you check the Firestorm website tomorrow (September 3) at 1 pm SLT for information about where to get it!

Because we separate
Like ripples on a blank shore

~ “Reckoner” by Radiohead

Reckoner

Sometimes I need to break out the leather and the piercings and just get a little punk. I had all this good stuff around and I put it together and boom! Start with the great jacket/shirt combo from Tatyana Ultsch. This absolutely awesome jacket comes with a HUD that allows tons of variations (stripes on or off, different belt looks, dozens of t-shirt textures or none at all). I made sure the stripes were on to match Eudora3D’s skirt for We <3 RP. My kick ass boots are mesh delights from LeeZu Baxter that she came out with not too long ago.

My skin is a great deal at The Dressing Room Fusion. If you want to get into Inka Mexicola’s stuff at a good price, this is the way to do it. I punked it up with liner and lips from Constance Daehlie, who I seem to be a showing a lot of lately. It’s a go-to for me. Those beautiful gray eyes are from Umazuma Metaluna’s set at Chapter Four. Hasuko Kuramoto brought out these mesh ears not long ago and I made my own earrings from full perm pieces from LCorse. And my updo? A brutally brilliant bun from Kattington.
