It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds. ~ Aesop

Love Birds

I walked out to the beach to find that it looked like a flock of lovebirds had taken nest in my palm trees. Oh wait. They purred and I realized they were KittyCats perched in my palms. KittyCatS recent release of LoveBirdS include a removable beak and crest and come with brightly colored feathers, made for Valentine’s Day but perfect to brighten up your spring after a long winter. Each KittyCat includes a special animation in them, where they will rez you a blanket and special poses so you can enjoy them with a friend.

I enjoyed the warm air in an outfit made of separates from the first anniversary Shiny Shabby. My top from evastika Aura is fitted for Maitreya bodies matched to denim shorts from Systi Cisse, also for Maitreya bodies. Cute bowed flats from Darling Monday come in several colors. A cute little diamond-studded watch from Bob for Shiny Shabby includes a HUD to change various parts of the watch.

Carina Larsen has made this cute and casual ponytail for Shiny Shabby with her great texture-change options. I am wearing Monicuzza Babenco’s gorgeous new applier for Shiny Shabby on the Catwa Annie mesh head in a warm tan. I found my palms at the RFL Home & Garden Expo from Cari McKeenan, who got them out late. The donation from purchase of the trees will go directly to ACS.

I just found my spark
Give me a fire to start!

Tom Ford recently did a star-attended fashion show in LA with his newest collection, a combination of denims, boho and some 70s touches. So it was quite serendipitous when I opened one of GraceHaddington’s latest dresses and found this funky 70s design on the HUD in a pattern that looked amazingly close to one Tom Ford showed. Grace LOVES patterns and is one of the few in SL that uses them liberally and with a completely wonderful sense of proportion and color. I paired Glamistry’s newest sunglasses (to keep out the LA sun) and a pair of his great platform sandals, both of which come with his slick color change HUD and linked to his flawless shopping system. A wrist cuff from Systi Cisse locks the look up.

Spark

Thora Charron just released two new hairs and this gorgeously-textured, side-swept ‘do includes a HUD with a variety of her luscious colors. No more separate hairs cluttering your inventory—it’s easy peasy. My skin is Sawsan Secretspy’s newest for the Designer Circle, and I hope you can see how gorgeous it is. I think I will blog this one again because it’s worth seeing. As always, Sawsan lends her special elegance and sexiness to this skin and with her applier, it’s a complete look.

Blessings—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 20

“Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” ~ Charles Dickens

Blessings

No series of blog posts about the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar is complete without an invasion by the KittyCatS themselves. Two new breed lines have been released recently—Rainy Day Dreams with little patridges and pears in the antlers and sELFies, Santa’s little troublemaking helpers. They are plopped all over a great piece of furniture that Debil Skute made for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 8, which includes several great custom poses for men and women. (You don’t need KittyCatS to enjoy the furniture, by the way.)

Blessings

A green mesh jumpsuit from Cynthia Ultsch is casual wear at its sexiest. All in one piece, the outfit fits and bends amazingly well and comes in curvy as well as regular sizes so if you carry a little extra, you have room to move. Great winter boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo keep my feet warm.

The featured item today is a wonderful necklace made from scratch by Bastchild Lotus. Bast makes jewelry in real life so she brings a sensibility about what looks good and what is possible to her SL jewelry, and this great unisex necklace is no exception. If you look very closely, you can see a beautiful celtic heart finding, a gem, a kitty charm and of course the main piece. The beads are exquisitely textured, all on a resizable leather cord. This piece was made uniquely as a gift for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar so make sure you get your copy.

Blessings

Truth Hawks recently ended his half off sale (waaah) but has come out with new hair (yay). This windblown style comes with our without a great pompom hat with all his gorgeous hair color textures. I am still infatuated with Syane Cisse’s pretty peachy skin, which I wear here without makeup. Love the delicate way she shows highlights.

Cookie Time—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 6

Cookie Time—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 6

I think baking cookies is equal to Queen Victoria running an empire. There’s no difference in how seriously you take the job, how seriously you approach your whole life. ~ Martha Stewart

Cookie Time

It’s Saturday and I simply don’t want to get up and get dressed. I want to mosey around the house and do housework and bake Christmas cookies in my pajamas, so Ivey Deschanel gave me the perfect opportunity to do so with her pajama bottoms, today’s gift for the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar. I paired it with the top to an outfit Moonbubble Gothly is giving out as a gift and the grooviest slippers from Parallaxx (they even have paws on the bottom).

Cookie Time

Queue Marlowe recently put out this disheveled up-do, which suits this look ideally with its casual loop of hair and wild tendrils and bangs. My plain but pretty skin is from Syane Cisse, and of course, I pulled out accessories from Redd Columbia, because.. cookies, right? (I have approximately 12 dozen cookies in the freezer already for the holiday. Want to offer me your favorite cookie recipe? I want to get it!)

Home for the Holidays—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 4

Home for the Holidays—KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 4

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can’t beat home, sweet home

~ “Home for the Holidays,” as done by Perry Como

Home for the Holidays

The big news in my house is that we have 50 pounds of venison in the freezer now. Yep, the man of the house got a ten-point buck, so we’ll be eating meat this winter. I put my foot down about having a stuffed head on my mantel, so this great new piece of art from Tya Fallingbridge, the gift for today in the KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, is much appreciated. We can still celebrate the hunt without creepy glass eyes looking at us.

And I got all festive for the holidays at home with the Ugly Christmas Sweater from Phunk. (I don’t think it’s THAT bad personally, though some of the textures on the HUD are ones I would not wear personally. Ever. I am not a snowman-on-a-sweater girl.) My jeans with the really nice backend are from beanster Potato and come with a nice HUD for changing the texture. The texture is what makes the jeans, frankly. And Senzati0n Domenitzo’s darling ankle boots fit with these skinnies perfectly.

Home for the Holidays

Bubbles Clawtooth just came out with this darling hat-on-hair that comes with a texture-change HUD for the hat and what seems a thousand great hair textures. (I am exaggerating, but I spent a lot of time clicking.) This darling look is one of my favorite hat hairs of the season! I loved this skin from Syane Cisse on me. It’s plain, indeed, but has a certain sophistication I think could be dressed up or down.

Future Perfect

He quickly pulled me off the busy sidewalk and into a doorway. A velocicopter whizzed past, leaving a plume of cool air behind it that curled around the corner of the doorway.

“Come with me,” he beckoned, and I followed him into the dark doorway.

We pushed through a small dark hallway past the security cilia. They whispered over our bodies as we passed, sensing our pulse, picking up data from the dust on our clothing, sniffing for prohibited weapons. Frac pushed through and emerged into the club ahead of me, bellowing, “Mellita, domi adsum!

Future Perfect

A towering woman emerged from behind a dark podium. “Fractile Montosa,” she snarled. “Welcome back to the Esoterium.” Her skin was pale and glimmered with a subtle sheen in the black lights of the club. She wore spots of glowing light blue hardware—earrings, belt, gems on her chest armor. Lines of blue light slid up her calves.

She gazed down at Frac, peering through her dark glasses with disdainful light blue eyes. I could see lines of data sliding across the inside as she engaged his attention. “We won’t have any more trouble like we did last time, will we?” The lights on the bottoms of her heelless boots pulsed with the beat of the loud music in the club as her long fingers curved around a small glowing voltaic terminus.

Frac grinned abashedly. “No, Ma’am. Just here to grab a drink, swap a few stories, and discreetly enjoy the beneficence of your gracious hospitality.”

Her blue lips curled in a smile. “I am glad we understand each other.”

Future Perfect

Our hostess from Esoterium is wearing the lastest in future club wear. First a great outfit from Syane Cisse—a combo of futuristic breast plate over Victorian bustle, laced and cut high in back and completed with fingerless gloves and thigh high stockings. The outfit comes with a hud for changing the accent colors. Her dark data glasses (also with hud) are also from Systi with glowing blue accents and her skin is from Systi’s sister, Syane. With its blue lipstick and shadow, it’s perfect for an evening at the Esoterium.

Future Perfect

Finally her amazing boots from Ono Zinner. With their heelless shape and molded platform, these boots were made for futuristic ass kicking. Ono has made these as his others, with glow adjust and animation adjustment available in a handy hud. Our hostess at the Esoterium can choose a rainbow of colors and adjustments to these boots and look newly made every night.

Future Perfect

Drinks arrived at our table, smoothly served by a pale dark-eyed server. “On the house,” he smiled, nodding towards the hostess across the club, who still had her blue eyes focused on Frac.

Frac lifted his glass in salute to her and drained it down in one draft. “Cheers to Mistress Eso!” he said merrily, slamming it down on the table.
