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.

Ready to get your hunt on? Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

A Pr!tty Back to School Look

School Days 2

It’s that time of year! Fall is creeping ever closer, and classes are staring back up. I really can’t wait for sweater weather! In the spirit of the back-to-school season, I put together a cute look with some casual attire. I don’t know about everyone else, but one of the first things I always did before returning to classes after a summer was get my hair done! Pr!tty has you covered and then some for a new ‘do to start out the new school year. Right now you can pick up four, yes four, different styles as special group gifts. Each Pr!tty hairstyle comes in a fat pack of colors, and the group is free to join. This means the gifts are genuinely free. Do not miss out on them! Next I picked up this super cute sweater and button-down shirt combo at BlahBlahBlah. The shirt is one of the current Lucky Board items at the main location. I also couldn’t resist the excuse to get new shoes. It’s true, there really is no such thing as too many pairs of shoes. I found these adorable ankle boots from DAISY for Free on the Marketplace. They are so cute on, and they come with a few color options! Every new school year requires a new bag or backpack, something to keep up with all the books, and notebooks, pens, and pencils. I personally prefer a messenger style bag, so this messenger bag from HOC Apparel was just the thing. It too has a few color options and is modifiable for adjusting size and fit. Probably my favorite part of this look is the glasses from VG. These geeky chic glasses are a $5 linden gift at the Trend Fashion Fair. They come with a color change and re-size HUD, and they are unisex. So I know you’ve been wondering about the pencils behind my ears, in my mouth, and up my nose… hahaha These cute little props are from Boof and also include a “hair sticks” version.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Starting with the guys and what Mr0mizu is wearing! There are some great things for men at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room and a new round has just got under way. Top of the list is the free Tuxedo Hair by Damselfly that can be yours just by joining the Cosmopolitan Sales Room Group! Join for free and click the poster above the door in the main room! It comes with a colour change HUD and matching hairbases so there is bound to be a shade to suit your taste! The Alexandro Blazer by Etham and the Cargo Shorts by GioMEN are also available there for discounted prices. The Cargo Shorts come with a colour change HUD so you are really getting several pairs for one price which is a great bargain!

Mr0mizu is also showing a couple more items from The Blues Hunt! The Mazie Tattoo is by Reckless and the Owl Stra SLink Hand Tattoo is by Identity. Both items could be worn by either male or female! He is also wearing the Blaze Hi-Tops which is a free group gift by Eudora! If you are looking for a really great male skin at a discount price, then be sure to head over to The Mens Dept where you can pick up the absolutely gorgeous Javier skin by Aeros for L$300! Believe me this is an amazing bargain. There are matching SLink appliers on the floor nearby for L$25 each!

I have some great items to show you too! The Simply Sweater by Offbeat is a great wardrobe staple now the cooler nights are drawing in as Autumn gets closer while the Alien Leggings by L’Douce Push are so fun I couldn’t resist! They come with appliers for Phat Azz, Ghetto Booty, Banned, WowMeh and SLink aswell as system layers which I am wearing here. My belly tattoo is called Spell and is by Utopiah.

My nails are by 7Mad Ravens and are usually how I feel when doing my nails.. one stroke and I was done! Me and nail varnish do not have the best of friendships as Im so clumsy, so these were perfect for me! My rather rainbowtastic skin is the Eliana skin in tone 4 by Lumae that you can find at the Olive You Fundraiser for half the normal price with all proceeds going to the fundraiser!

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!

A New Round of Cosmo Sales Room!

Snapshot_006Good evening Fabulouses! A new round of The Cosmo Sales Room has begun, which means new group gifts, and more awesome deals to be found!  In this round of The Cosmo Sales Room there are three group gifts, two for men, and one for women.  I am displaying the women’s group gift in the photo above.  Hilly Halaan was kind enough to sponsor her silver trimmed white Strapless Dress.  The CSR inworld group is free to join so it won’t sting a bit!  You can also find the Hollyhood Glam Heels (99L), {ZOZ} Natural Pink Rose Slink Polish Huds (90L), and the Damselfly Kandi Rigged Mesh Hair (70L per colour pack), so have a peek around the three sales rooms for some steals while you are snatching up group gifts!

I also wanted to mention this stunning Freya Necklace that can be found at The Fantasy Gacha priced at 50L per play.  The rare necklace piece is texture change to gold or silver and you can change the jewel colours too.  There are several co-ordinating pieces in both gold and silver to play for.
Snapshot_011One more little tidbit to share with you tonight!  If you are a blogger, photographer or designer you may be interested to know that  (*ANGELICA) has placed out a new gift that includes 6 really nice hand poses for mesh hands.  No need to join a group – it’s just priced at 0L :)

Im Forever Black-Eyed

Its the middle of August and there have been a fresh batch of events that have started over the last week. Today I am going to be showing you some of the freebies and dollarbies from The Black Fashion Fair. There are quite a few freebies and dollarbies here so be sure to check back to the blog over the coming days as I’ll be showing more very soon! The Fair operates by having a fixed landing point, but I have given SLURL’s to each booth. It won’t teleport you directly but hopefully it will show a beacon to guide you.

The Plastik is always very generous with their gift boxes at their mainstore and at events and their gift box at The Black Fashion Fair is no exception. The gift box costs L$10 to purchase but there are several items of mesh clothing inside for you to incorperate into your every day wardrobe! All of the outfits below are from their gift box!

If you like statement jewellery the you will love the gift by Maxi Gossamer. The black Dare bangles are really chunky and I love the Talia ring. They are the perfect pieces to complete the outfits. You can see a closer look at the ring further down the post!

Being a certified shoe-a-holic, I am always thrilled when there are freebie shoes at events. The strappy Cancoon shoes for SLink Mid Feet by Essenz are gorgeous and will quite possibly become my new favourite shoes as they are so versatile. If nothing else be sure to grab these!

The nails in this picture are from a set by Ghee that can also be found at The Black Fashion Fair. Another great event that is happening at the moment is The Fantasy Gacha Carnival and you can find the Moonchild Nosering by Enfant Terrible in one of the many gachas there!

Another event that started recently is Totally Top Shelf. When you land at the teleport point you will find some great group gifts there by some very generous designers. The group is free to join and you can find this beautiful Linka Skin by Essences! The make up on the actual skin is a more subtle purple colour. I am wearing Mi Amor Deep Smoke Eye Make up layer by Pink Acid on the skin in this picture.

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!

An Affordable Fantasea

Snapshot_001Good evening to all of you Fabulous Readers!  Looking for  something to spice up your Second Life?  Try some fins!  From time to time I put on a set of fins and make my mer way under the sea to visit Second Life from a different perspective.  Today I am plundering the Blake Diego Sea in my Pirate Mermaid Costume which I put together with some inexpensive The Fantasy Gacha finds and some FREE marketplace finds too.

Pure Poison is participating in The Fantasy Gacha and in this Pirate themed round they are offering the Pirate Mermaid Skeleton Bras in several colours and the Fitted Mesh Mermaid Tail (comes with a swimming AO, and colour change hud to match the different bra colours) at 50L per play.  Don’t worry, the bras are fully adjustable if you are erm.. bigger or smaller. :)  My Commander Pirate Hat is also a Pure Poison Fantasy Gacha find (50L per play).

I found the Monkey Island Insult Cutlass Sword and the Anchor Necklace in the AleyMart marketplace store, both for free! The sword actually works  – too fun.  They have a wide selection of free pirate goodies in that shop – so take a peek if you are into finding some good free pirate loot.
Snapshot_003The Even-Tide Mer Scales can be found on marketplace for 29L per colour or in full fatpack rainbows too.  They just add a little fantasy to your every day skin.  I am wearing a couple more tattoo layers which are also free.  The Mock Cosmetics Party All Night / Indifference Desert Sand Eyeshadow can be found inworld at Shop FreeStyle, and the Left Eye Scar Tattoo can be found on marketplace as a free gift by Le Baguette.

Last but not least… TSUNAMI is the maker of these free Mouth Bubbles!!
Pure Poison @ The Fantasy Gacha

I’m off to find some booty!  Enjoy your evenings :)

Under The Solaria Sun

Snapshot_003Hello Fabulous readers :)  This week I watched one of my favourite movies, “Under The Tuscan Sun” which I have seen a bazillion times, and was inspired to revisit Solaria inworld, which is  a beautiful, authentic Italian themed sim.   There was plenty of Italian chatter going on in local (which I didn’t understand of course, but it sounded lovely all the same), and even a handsome Italian man playing his guitar and singing.   It was “almost” like I was right there in Italy… for a few minutes anyways, until I was ever so rudely yanked back into the reality of RL where the laundry machine was buzzing at me to start folding. MEH.. But…  before I logged off, I managed to snap a few photos of the outfit I am wearing today because I thought you might be interested in hearing about the great gacha deals and freebies I put together.

The classy white 9-5 Dress is made by Sassy! and is available at the Greek Isle Gacha for 50L per play.  There are several colours to play for, but I was inspired to wear the white ;).  Those of you who saw the movie or read the book may remember the reference.

My Damselfly Sunhild hair can be found at The Fantasy Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  I think you could roleplay this versatile style up or wear it with a classy dress too.  There is also a pretty cool mens hair to play for too that is very much like Kahl Drogo’s (rawr) from GOT!
Snapshot_005Are you eyeing up those hot shoes, wondering how much they are going to break your bank?  Well…  If you happened to listen to me when I was telling everyone to join the Essenz inworld group when it was free to join and they would soon have VIP gifts [HERE], you can now find the Slink High Feet Add-on Denver Shoes in White in the past notices for a limited time.  If you aren’t already a member, you’ll need to pay the 350L join fee.
Snapshot_004More “fab” news to share with you is that in the notices of the MOCK Cosmetics inworld group (250L to join), there are a ton of Innocente Lipcolors as gifts!  I have shown five below, but there are a ton of colours!!  This is a very generous group, very often offering plenty of group gifts – well worth the join fee!

A Song Of Happiness Echoes

Hey everyone! Happy humpday! After showing you a couple of the sweet treats you can find on the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt yesterday, I thought I would show you a few more today as there are some great clothing finds if you adore cute and girly things like I do! The hunt is on until the end of August so you still have a couple of weeks left to sink your teeth into these great prizes. You are looking for a little cupcake with blue icing on the top and each prize costs L$5 to buy!

You can find the Ira Mesh Blouse Shine by [ZD] and the Buffy Skirt by Miseria on the hunt. I think they look so adorable together. I do tend to like clashing my pastel colours together like this, though it might not be to everyones taste! Both items are mesh and to wear them together I wore the XXS skirt with the Medium top which caused little to no overlap!

The Kawaii Jumper Dress by by Parfait is so ridiculously cute! Plus the slogan on the shirt really made me giggle! My hair is hiding some of it but it reads “Kawaii on the streets .. Senpai in the sheets!” .. Senpai is a Japanese term which is roughly the equivilent to the concept of a Mentor.. now you can see why it made me giggle!

The last item from the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt I want to show you today is the adorable Little Singaporian dress and jacket by Yulcie. This looks like two seperate pieces but it is all in one so there is no overlap to worry about. Hooray! The little ice cream print on the skirt of the dress is just so cute!

The cute Jinx hair is from the free pastels set by Truth. Calleja previously blogged about the hair here, but I thought it was just the most perfect hairstyle for these few looks I wanted to show you today, that I thought I would show it again! I love pastel hair colours and the colours in this set are just beautiful! Be sure to go and snag a copy for yourself!
