Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 26.

The Splash of Color Hunt started this past week and rocketed right to the number one spot for a while (now at number 2). I did the Fairy Tale Hunt and Anarchy Hunt along with my partner and aside for the usually little glitches (stores out of business and such) I can personally vouch for the fact that these are well-run hunts. I’m sure you can find a hunt to suit your fancy. Enjoy!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL splash of color huntI live in central California, so when mother nature turns up the late summer heat, I crank up the air conditioning and stay indoors. Second Life is always so nice and cool, so my partner and I do a good bit of hunting. Not only do we beat the heat, but we end up with all kinds of cool stuff.

There is lots to do! So many hunts… There are some pretty good hunts going on right now, but a lot of them are going to reach their expiration dates in about a week. Of course we’re going to be seeing a whole new crop of hunts on September 1st.

New to the hunting game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages with tips and tricks. The short version is this: follow the clues, find the hunt object, touch it or buy it (most are free or very nearly free) and then push off to the next stop on the hunt. Not only is hunting a lot of fun, it’s also a great way to find some new nooks and crannies in Second Life that you’ve never visited before.

See you out on the hunt!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Dirty Diva HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 19.

We’re into the last weeks of summer and if you’re following all the hunts that are in the planning stages then it seems like Halloween is just around the corner. Time flies when you’re having fun hunting!

The Dirty Diva hunt is still making a strong showing and has pushed its way into the number one spot. Enmeshed Into Fall Hunt has had some problems but is still getting a lot of interest. I guess people REALLY love their mesh, LOL. There are lots of fun hunts in the rest of the pack as well, with many more hunts going on too… about 50 hunts active at the moment.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntMid August… does this count as the “dog days of summer?” Be that as it may, the middle of the month means another big turnover of hunts. There are five new hunts that just started today, as well as a bunch that are ending. I’ve separated out the hunts calling it a wrap so that you can make a final run at them. You’ll find them at the end of the list today.

If you’d like to get involved with this fabulous game of hunting, there is no better time. There is a plethora of hunts currently underway. If you need a bit of help to get started FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages to help you with that. Yup, all this hunt stuff is either free or very nearly so. I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe and home have never looked better.

Let’s do this! Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Fairy Tale HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 12.

There are lots of cool hunts going on. The Fairy Tale Hunt has jumped to the top of the list this week, with Dirty Diva holding the second spot, and the female path for Battle of the Sexes still making a strong showing. My partner and I have been planning on doing Kagami, but it’s rumored to be so popular that it’s hard to get in. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will give you hours of enjoyment.

Guest Blog By Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts & Sales Room Finds For Men

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – Group Gifts and Sales Room Finds for Men, originally blogged [HERE]

There are some terrific men’s clothes out on the grid for a limited time right now so I’d advise you to get right down to both the Cosmopolitan Sales Room and 69 Park Ave GQ to get ‘em while they’re there.  This round of the  Cosmopolitan Sales Room has a couple of super-cool men’s jackets for sale for just $70L until June 8th.  The one I’m showing here is the Binboa jacket in copper with shirt and tie from GioMen on sale for just $70L.  It’s all one mesh piece but comes with a HUD which allows you to change the color of the shirt and the tie separately to any one of 5 colors.  That means you’ve got 25 color combination options with your copper colored jacket.  You can wear this with just about any pants you have in your wardrobe, but don’t forget the free stuff that the Lindens gave you in your inventory Library.  The black Musician Male jeans are one of my library favorites even though they’ve got a little rip in them.  

GioMEN-Binboa

 

The slip-on black leather shoes are the current group gift at sf Designs.  There’s a small group joining fee but it’s worth every penny  because the group gifts change monthly and everything owner Swafette Firefly makes is high quality.

sfDesign Shoes

69 Park Ave GQ always has great group gifts and the group costs just $50L to join.  Group gifts change over on Fridays, and this week there are two free men’s gifts plus a $100L gift certificate available through June 5.  That’s right, you get twice the group joining fee back as a gift certificate which is a fabulous deal – just look for the information board near the back of the store.  This week’s Red Pearl tuxedo is actually several outfits in one because you get both a short and a long tuxedo jacket, or can wear the vest and shirt without a jacket as I’m showing you in the pictures here.  And this is the perfect time to pick up formal wear with a red tie and vest – you’ll need it next winter for the holidays and Valentine’s day.

69 Park Ave GQ Tuxedo

The second group gift this week at 69 Park Ave GQ is a set of four board shorts just in time for the summer beach season.  These shorts are mesh and come with a color change HUD.  Hud controlled mesh is one of the great recent improvements on SL because now you can change your outfit without having to actually swap clothing layers or prim parts while worrying about showing … erm … anything private.

Board Shorts-69

And before I finish, let me mention the dreamy blue eyes I’m wearing in these pictures.  They are the Deep Sky mesh eyes from Mayfly available for free at the FabFree Station.  The package there contains both mesh and regular eyes in four different sizes.

The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!

Greetings fashionably fabulous ones!

My  post today is ALL about The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!  This hunt is based on the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Audrey Hepburn.  It’s one of those movies that stands the test of time and did it with fashionable flair.  I won’t give away to many details of the movie, in this post, just in case you want to watch it.  The link I am providing, for The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt, will take you to the page that will give you photos of the hunt items from each creator, SLURLS and hints.  The hunt consists of clothing and home decor items…which I will feature today.  ALL items in the hunt are FREE.

In the first shot I am showing the fabulous outfit from Brii Underground Wear (#5 on the hunt list) and it includes the jacket, pencil skirt, glasses (not worn), makeup (not worn), peeptoe shoes (not worn) and hat.  The Suitcase with Telephone is from Resplendent Rose (#9 on the hunt list) and the projector, table, extra movie reels, tub sofa, cat with no name, record player and projector screen are all part of the Audrey Cinema Set hunt gift from Arcana Antiques & Oddities (#15 on the hunt list).  The cigarette holder, from Bloody Mess, is no longer available.  My Zebra Peeptoe Heels, worn in all photos, are from Babydoll (#95 on the hunt list) for the Sexy and I know it Hunt.  The Sexy and I know it Hunt ended on May 18th but the hunt symbol and shoes were still there when I checked earlier today!

Next we have an outfit from Vips Creations (#42 on the hunt list)…this oufit comes with the pearl necklace, bracelets for left and right wrist, pearl ring (Jewelry not worn), glasses, polkadot dress, clutch, opera gloves & heels (not worn).  The Audrey hair, I’m wearing in all photos, is from Ali&Ali (#21 on the hunt list), the tiara with earrings are the hunt item from Redrose Jewllry (#22 on the hunt list) and the pearl necklace and bracelets are the hunt gift from Eye Candi (#10 on the hunt list).  The Tiffany Tea Table is the hunt gift from Peachy (#53 on the hunt list) and includes the table, chairs and all the sweet goodies on the table.  *I’ll be featuring the rug and Audrey room divider in other photos.

This fatpack of fabulous dresses are the hunt gift from blah.Blah.blah (#52 on the hunt list)…all colors are easily changed via the included HUD.  There is also a black version of this dress (which I will feature in another photo) included in the package and is separate from the HUD.

The first dress, in this next photo, is the black version of the dress from blah.Blah.blah.  The stunning Iris gown, in the center shot, is the hunt gift from Euphoria Couture (#46 on the hunt list).  The last outfit in the photo is the hunt gift from Shoenique/Unique Designs (#44 on the hunt list).  This chic outfit includes the hat, dress with flexi feather attachment, glasses, earrings (not worn), gloves (not worn) and heels (not worn).

Does the Zoo need a new leopard?

Hello all you FabFree-ers!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. It was a long weekend for me, so I got to do whatever I wanted today.

Roarrr1

What better way to spend my day off, then to head to the Parktown Zoo! I was inspired by Love’s post earlier, and had to go see the giraffe’s. This is also a great opportunity to tell you about a new to me store called —– Bijou ! —–. This lovely R O A R R R leopard! outfit, minus the jeans, is a camper chair prize at —– Bijou ! —–, and it’s free,  you only have to camp for 60 minutes to get it! You get the mesh boots, a mesh tie top, mesh arm warmers and the system layer bra, all of which you see in my picture. Not seen are left and right bracelets, rings for one hand, a mesh bag, and a pair of very low, system layer black jeans. The jeans were a little risqué for the zoo, so I opted to wear a pair of jeans I already had.  If this outfit isn’t your style, there are 3 other chairs for women, and 2 for men, all with 60 minute camp times.

Roarrr2

I know camping isn’t for everyone, so —– Bijou ! —– also has some lucky chairs, midnight mania’s and group gifts. I will be showing you one of the Midnight Mania gifts in a future post, as well as a lucky chair gift.

OK, I think the giraffe is getting suspicious of the leopard print, so I will be moving on now. Maybe I’ll go find the monkeys! Hope you have a great evening everyone! Until next time.
