A few of you probably knew this was coming this week… I couldn’t resist using my teal cat for this photo! (I have on teal-ish eyes and eye makeup, too). I actually have two things to talk with you about….

I’m wearing the gorgeous new Zoe skin from Tuli. You can find her at the Skin Fair — and she is just wonderful, and what you would expect from Tuli. Tuli has really embraced the tattoo layer makeups and such — and gives us tons of options. The skins come with a bare version, and eye makeup versions. Additional options on the tattoo layer are brows (yay! multiple reddish choices!!), eyelashes (in different colors), freckles, cleavage, and lipsticks!! I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate being able to combine things the way I like them best. As for the rest — Tuli’s skins are always beautifully drawn. Pick up a demo and try them for yourself!

And … yes — I have fallen hook, line, and sinker into the world of the adorable new breedables, KittyCatS. I never envisioned myself getting into breedables… and I’m not even a cat person in RL … but everything about this venture has drawn me in… from the excellent product, to the fabulous community of breedable/cat people. I expect to talk some more about this fascinating SL avocation… but to give you a head start, if your interest is piqued … check out this terrific review by Aywren Sojourner, and check out the official KittyCatS website. The cat you see with me in the pictures, is a limited Valentine edition cat — no longer available in the store, tho’ you might find them on the secondary market. She’s going to breed my first little kitten sometime today, and I’m beyond excited! Its the little things 🙂

Red is one of my colors … and I’ve been waiting for a chance to show off this wonderful (not so new) piece from Vextra Messing. Vextra really does some wonderful, wonderful work… and I love her latex. And, anything with a buckle on it is tops in my book!

I don’t have to tell you about these boots… but… just… perfection. If you’re going to bother… just get the fatpack.

*plus there’s a closer-up pic at the bottom of this post*

Last night, I did my first hostessing gig at a fantastic little jazz/blues/classic rock club, The House of the Rising Sun. If you are every looking for a super-fun, laid-back, friendly club atmosphere… this is the place~ I’m there on Thursday nights, 8-10pm … so come by and ask for Kieve — I’ll take care of you!

I was looking for just the right dress for my debut… and this terrific little black dress from The Plastik just fit the bill. With just a few accessories, and these amazing new-ish shoes from Pixel Mode… I was ready to hit the dance floor.

In this picture, I’m standing in the amazingly well-done skybox, new from reBourne, Little Africa. As always… the texturing and craftsmanship from Danny reBourne are just unbelievable. You really need to go visit the demo and see it for yourself. I also have to take a moment here and appreciate the great customer service I received from reBourne. A small question came up for me when I was setting up my skybox, and Danny responded quickly, with a lovely and warm friendliness… and didn’t once scoff at my ignorance. For me… that is the currency of SL … and Danny earned a loyal customer.

I have the entire color range for this set, and was delighted to find there was a vibrant emerald.
