Which Way to the Farmer’s Market?

Happy weekend everyone! It is absolutely gorgeous in my neck of the woods, and I hope you all can say the same thing. The outfit I have for you in this post would be so perfect for the weather I am having, it makes me think of wandering up and down isles of an outdoor farmer’s market in a big city, with the sun shining brightly and the smell of kettle popcorn being popped (or some other delicious smelling food being prepared for the crowds) OK…enough of that kind of talk, my mouth is starting to water, let me tell you about what I am wearing :)

Boho-esque1

I shall start with my bright and cheery skirt! I adore this skirt, and lucky for all of you, you can get it for free and adore it like me! The ::FAC:: Joni Maxi Skirt and Belt is the July group gift from FA Creations. The skirt is mesh, in the standard sizes, and the belt is resizable. I just love the gems hanging off of the belt, what a great little touch. The group is free to join, and they put out a fabulous gift every month, so it is well worth the group spot.

Boho-esqueCollage

Next up is my stylish purse, from Loordes of London. It is one of the current free gifts available at the FabFree Headquarters, and I just love the colour and pattern of the fabric. The Loordes of London-La Boheme Bag-Uniques is my kind of purse, and that’s saying something, as I do not wear many purses here in SL. Don’t wait too long to head over to FabFree HQ if you want this, as the gifts available are always changing, and you just don’t know how long something will be there!

Last of my things to tell you about, but definitely not least, is the :*:CPD:*: Dryad Fetish Necklace. This lovely piece is the free hunt prize from Chaos, Panic, and Disorder! for the Medieval Fantasy Hunt 12, that runs until July 31 and has a theme of Spirits of Nature. There is both a female and male version available, hidden in separate places. You are looking for an ivy wreath with a dragonfly in the center, and to help you out, hints have been provided:
Women: “Spirit of nature? How about the Goddess of Nature?’”
Male: “Cube, cookie, bowl, loaf, packet… they say it’s not good for you.” Make sure you take a good look around, as there are a few other hunts happening at the store, and the other prizes are just as nice :)

Alrighty…that’s it for now, I think I can smell that kettle popcorn in the air, and it is calling me. Until next time, TTFN!!!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – The Riches of the Silk Road

Another fabulous guest blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone, originally blogged [HERE]
Greetings from the Orient, all you deal-seekers.  The Silk Road Hunt (hunt website here) organized by Historical Hunts is running until June 30, and has some fabulous gifts that are completely free.  There are 102 stops on this hunt, each one having a male and female or a unisex free gift. The theme this year is “Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves”, so you will find the gifts focusing on the Middle East and Arabia. No blog post can do justice to the many beautiful things you can find traveling the Silk Road this year, but let me give you a taste of what you will find.

This hunt is features many buildings, furniture and other decor items, but there are also a few clothing items.  First off let me show you a combination of two clothing gifts.  The Ali Baba headdress, vest, sword, and leather wrist cuffs in this picture come from Goddess Fantasies (#05 SRH5), while the pants and belt are the gift at Rag Dollz (#032 SRH5).  There are some pretty nice women’s clothing gifts at both of these stores too.

Image

 

Shown above:

Headress, vest, sword, wrist cuffs:  Goddess Fantasies – Ali Baba (#05 Silk Road Hunt 5 gift/free)

Pants, belt:  Rag Dollz – Thieves Quest (#032 SSRH5 gift/free)


Now let me pan back my camera a bit and show you the gorgeous building I’m standing in front of.  It’s the Ali Baba Tower, the Silk Road Hunt gift from Salome Designs (#09 SRH5).  It’s a gorgeous two story hexagonal Arabian-style building with a hanging fire pot and a balcony walkway around the second story inside.  And remember – it’s absolutely free!

Image

You can furnish your building with the room divider with plants, a chair and table from Hearth & Home (#012 SRH5) shown on the left below, or with the burl tables, dressing screen and plant stand, all gifts from An Lema (#018 SRH5) shown on the right.

Image

Shown above:

Ali Baba Tower: Salome Designs (#09 SRH5 gift/free)

Room Divider with plants, chair, table: Hearth & Home  (#012 SRH5 gift/free)

Secret of the Thieves Burl tables, Thieves Dressing Screen, Riches of Persia Plant Stand: An Lema (#018 SRH5 gift/free)


Another of the buildings available as gifts on the Silk Road Hunt is the  Arabian Temple found at Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5).  It has lovely carved wood windows and the interior textures are amazing.

Image

You can see more of the interior of this building here because I’ve furnished it with the Scroll Floor Lamp, the gift from Kismet (#035 SRH5) and the Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant from Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5) in the top picture, and Salman’s Rug 4two from Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5).  This is mighty sweet decor whether your furnishing a Middle Eastern building or just a beachside house.

Shown above:

Arabian Temple: Dragon Magick Wares (#020 SRH5 gift/free)

Scroll Floor Lamp (3 sizes including table):  Kismet (#035 SRH5 gift/free)

Thieves Rest Bench, floor pillows, lamp, plant:  Dreamscape Wedding Designs (#051 SRH5 gift/free)

Salman’s Rug 4two (M/F/Cuddles):  Sweet Sorrows (#041 SRH5 gift/free)


 

There are quite a few fun gifts on this hunt as well.  Two of my favorites are the Relaxing Magic Carpet made by Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5) and the Hide n’ Peek Jars, the hunt gift at Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5).  It may not be clear from the picture below, but the Relaxing Magic Carpet hovers up and down (but doesn’t actually fly and can’t be steered).  The Hide n’ Peek Jars allow three people to hide in or between the various jars in the set.  Very handy if you are one of the 40 thieves.

Image

Shown above:

Relaxing Magic Carpet (it hovers):  Potpourri Designs (#039 SRH5 gift/free)

Hide n’ Peek Jars (seats 3):  Sheds n Shacks (#079 SRH5 gift/free)


If all you want for your desert oasis is some water and an elegant spot to rest, you can’t beat the tile oasis with water pool from Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5).  After refreshing yourself at the pool, you can rest on the cushions that surround this lovely low table from Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5).  The cushions and table come with the plate and table lamp shown in the picture.

Image

Tile Oasis:  Pierre Ceriano (#022 SRH5 gift/free)

Low table with cushions, plate, lamp:  Park Place Home Decor (#027 SRH5 gift/free)


And for the more nomadically-minded you can find the blue and gold satin tent on the left in the picture below at Botanica (#093 SRH5), and the elaborate furnished tent with pillows on the right at ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5). Both come with elegant working lanterns.

Image

Shown above:

On the left: Blue gypsy tent – Botanica (#093 SRH5 gift/free)

On the left: Arabian tent - ~XM~ Designs (#30 SRH5 gift/free)


Finally, so that you don’t think there are just two men’s clothing gifts on the Silk Road Hunt, I must show you several of the many, many gifts available at stop #085, the Mountain Rose Shops.  This single stop on the main hunt offers a “mini hunt” among the several stores at that location, and you can pick up a total of nineteen prizes there.  Some are furnishings and buildings, and others are clothing.  Each of the clothing gifts includes men’s, boy’s, ladies, girls, and child versions.  As you’ll see from my pictures, the Mountain Rose Shops did not just limit themselves to an Arabian theme, but rather created clothing gifts from across the entire Silk Road route.  In several of these pictures I am wearing the red Ali shoes, the men’s hunt gift from Lindy Modern Shoes (#082).  But here are the clothing gifts from the Mountain Rose Shops:

Image

Shown above (all prizes from the mini-hunt at the Mountain Rose Shops):

#1  Arab Prince:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#2  Beggar:  Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#3:  Indian Prince – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#4:  Mongolian Prince (with boots) – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

#5:  Venetian Nobleman – Mountain Rose Shops (19 gift minihunt)  (#085 SRH5 minihunt gift/free)

Shoes: Ali Red – Lindy Modern Shoes (#082 SRH5 gift/free)


Geoffrey is also wearing:

Skin:  Belleza – Shawn Deep Tan (group gift/$350L to join)

Eyes:  [dirty.little.secret] Black eyes (former group gift)

Socks In My Sandals

Snapshot_003
Good afternoon Fabulouses :).  I generally try not to wear socks in my sandals out of fear that I may be endlessly teased about looking like a retired Floridian, but this time – it’s “adorbs” in my eyes, so tease away!    This entire outfit including the bustier top, maxi skirt, frilly socks and ribbon sandals is a free KIYOMIZU hunt prize made by SMC.  These sandals are made for the slink flat feet so you can wear them without the socks (if you must…), however if you are wearing the socks – you don’t even need the feet on!

The KIYOMIZU Sim Summer Hunt began on June 21st and runs until July 13th.  All of the prizes are free, so head on down to the sim and do some hunting for “ninja cats” to score on some sweet summer prizes from participating shops!

The Cosmo Sales Room is where you can find this adorable rigged mesh Brandell Hairstyle made by Damselfly priced at just 70L per colour pack!

Kisses and Cupcakes

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your day and having a great weekend. Today Im showing off another lipsmackingly delicious prize from the Sweet Treats Hunt. This the prize you can find at D&G Designs called Bake Sale Betty… Oh whats that you say? I have icing on my lips? Ooops! Well I just can’t help myself when making cupcakes!

The gorgeous skin I am wearing is the Lazy Sunday offering from Lumae and is an exclusive first look at a new skin coming soon to the store called Nima. I just love the deep rich lips on the make up for this skin, which is called Kissyface! Such a cute name! I usually wear lighter tones but I thought I would give you the opportunity to take a look at one of the divine darker tones. This one is Tone 7 and is called Truffle! Yummy! Thankfully Lumiya Rae, the owner of Lumae, keeps the Lazy Sunday skins out for a few days and not just for Sunday, so be sure to grab them while you can!

You Can’t Catch Me …

I promised some more from the Sweet Treats Hunt and it seems I may have found a couple of sweet little guys to help me out with showing you this amazing prize from Laney’s

I really love how versatile the Cuppycake Swimwear Ensemble is from Laney’s , with the choice of full bathing suit or bikini and a wrap skirt that can be worn with either or even with something else! The swimwear set also comes with appliers for Tangos and Phat Azz which is a bonus! I think the “Donut Worry Be Happy” headband and ring from Buttery Toast really adds the perfect sweetness. This set also comes with donut earrings but my hair is covering it! Trust me they are adorable!

I also couldnt resist reshowing the gorgeous Cloud Wings by Cila that were shown in an earlier guest post by Eloen Maerdrym. I am a sucker for a great pair of wings and these leave me on Cloud 9 ~grins at the cheesey pun~

Theres still more to show from the Sweet Treats Hunt, so be sure to stay tuned! Me and my Gingerbread Men are off to see the Muffin Man who lives down on Drury Lane!

Sweet Treats for Everyone

Hey everyone! Today I thought I would show you some of the mouth watering prizes you can find in the Sweet Treats Hunt! The Hunt runs until the 15th July so you still have plenty of time to snag these cute and adorable things. I will be showing you a few more prizes over the coming days so be sure to check back!

There are 36 stores participating, with each prize costing L$1 to purchase and you are looking for a little chocolate wrapped sweet. The starting point for the hunt is at Soul Designs Studio and you can find the Candy Dots outfit in the pictures below, which is their prize for the hunt!

I thought I would take a close up picture so you can see the adorable detail in the Toast Necklace that is one of three versions in the new group gift by Buttery Toast. You can also see the Butterfly Cookie Hair Pin by Eversong Wedding & Events that is one of the prizes in the hunt.

It might be a litle difficult to see the detail in the Yummy Cupcake Nails by Nail Me! that is another of the prizes in the Sweet Treats Hunt, so here is a picture of the HUD so you can see how cute the nails are!
