The Answers are in the Stars

Answers in the Stars

The answers are in the stars. Even our ancient ancestors looked to the heavens for answers to the many mysteries of the universe. Search the night skies of Second Life with this Astronomers Set from Roawenwood. This complete mesh set has single and couples poses and includes the table with items, and separate telescope. It is perfect for both modern and fantasy role play. The best part is, the set is the MadPea Green-mire Hunt gift from Roawenwood!

** Just a special note about the Greenmire Hunt, it’s not your average hunt! You have to follow one of two paths, and complete objectives using a hud. The “Stargazer Astronomers Set” from Roawenwood is one of the prizes you can claim at the end. Here’s the website for more information on how to do the hunt.

While playing with the poses and really looking at all the great details of the Astronomers set from Roawenwood, I imagined myself as the apprentice to some great Astronomer, diligently researching and learning all that I could. I enjoy props like this one because they allow me to tell a story. Most of the outfit I chose is currently available at The Countdown Room, at a deeply discounted cost. My hairstyle called “Beauty” is a gacha prize by Olive available at The Arcade. Another version of this fairy tale themed hair was also shown by Tiana here.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Guest Blog by Gloria Silverstone – A Touch of the Renaissance!

A guest blog by Gloria Silverstone, originally blogged [HERE] – A Touch of the Renaissance!

Grand, formal, opulent, and stately are terms I think of when I think of the Renaissance period.  Great art, architecture, literature, and inventions flourished during this time with masters like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raphael (Italy), and William Shakespeare (England) emerging.  It is also the only period I don’t have furniture for in my inventory.  But not to worry, my resource is the currently running Renaissance Fair Hunt IV.  I’ve created three vignettes with gifts from numerous hunts below (**mostly free). Remember always shop around, don’t just buy every new release item from the top Second Life creators, because in the end you only recreate their vendor ads and it never has your personality infused.  Use anything that inspires you as a source, take risks, be creative, and challenge yourself like I did with my tribute to the Renaissance.  After all Renaissance means re-birth so it’s the perfect time to freshen your home with new ideas.  Happy decorating and good luck hunting!

Your Friday Hunt Report

Green Mire IIIt’s Friday Fabulous Fans! That means it’s time to tell  you about the plethora of hunts going on. Yes, I do mean plethora! I have a whole big list of kick-ass hunts for you, and if you can’t find a theme you like… well, you’re not trying hard enough *grin*. Royalty, fantasy, alien abductions, school… the various hunt themes abound.

New to the hunt game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages devoted to getting you started. You should beware however… hunting can be highly addictive, and your inventory may get bloated with all that free (or very nearly free) stuff.

Let’s get going! Just prod the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

I Want To Take A Breath That’s True

Hello dear readers! We are past the hump in another week and I hope the days are being kind to you.. and evenings too! Today I am showing a few discounted items and another gift from the FabFree 7th Birthday Cupcake Hunt!

The Arcade Gacha is still going strong and today I am wearing the Fade Into You hair by ClawTooth which comes in lots of colours, plus a rare version with hats which is really adorable. I wasnt lucky enough to get the rares but I love the version without the hat just as much! The adorable Gigi bag is by The Sugar Garden and is from their gacha there also. It is so so cute and I adore that you can change the colour of the lace edging to suit your mood – or remove it completely!

Untitled

The Meri Two Tone Dress by M&M Female Fashion can be found at the Nice To Be event that starts a new round today. This is a pack of two dresses, one in print as shown and another in plain black. The Lita Platforms For SLink High Feet are by Emporium and are also at the Nice to Be event. You can find these in the Gacha there in a range of colours. The ones I am wearing are the Rare version which comes with a colour change HUD!

Untitled

Lastly here is a close up of the Black Jewelry Necklace by Ozlemimsinn Brahm and is one of the Free gifts found in one of the 50 cupcakes for the Birthday Hunt at the FabFree HQ! It also comes with earrings but with my hair it was difficult to see them.

You’ve Been Conjured

Snapshot_004Greetings Fabulous Readers :)  I know usually I show you free wearables, whether they be skin, clothing, hair or accessories, but today I wanted to show off a couple of free Twisted Hunt prop and pose prizes that I had a lot of fun with up in the FabFree sky!

With Halloween just around the corner, I am sure that even the clumsiest of witches can make use of the enchanting Demon Conjure Circle from Paper Moon and the {Rook} Conjuring Pose Set.  Heck, I got it to work, and I am only a pretend witch.

The Paper Moon  Demon Conjure Circle has a land impact of eight prims and includes the chalk circle, flickering candles and alter.  The hat is not included, I just tossed it off my head when it kept falling in my face during the hand waving frenzy which I was sure should accompany the incantation I was spelling so jubilantly, and it landed there.  I decided that I was going to conjure up spirits of good will, instead of demons, but I guess it’s your call what you’d like to conjure even though it sounds like a heck of a mess to clean up after.  When my spirit was finally here, it was in the form Tiana Omizu who really is a spirit of good will since she politely posed for me even though I was taking f o r e v v v v e r r r r r r.  (Thank you Tiana!!)

The {Rook} Conjuring Pose Set is just two prims and includes the double pose with the spell paper above my head.  This is modifiable so you can edit the pose or the paper around if need be for positioning.

You can find more information about The Twisted Hunt at their official blog.

Where Dreams Dare To Blossom

Another monday rolls around again which means the beginning of a brand new week.. but today, I am going to stay in my hazy dreamworld where I can laze around in the clouds with beautiful purple sparkling skies above me.. ahh this is the life..

Untitled

Today I am showing you another of the free birthday gifts from the FabFree 7th Birthday Cupcake Hunt that is going on right now at the FabFree HQ! This time it is a beautiful Robbie lingerie and clothing set by Artic Storm! The delicate lace of the lingerie is so pretty and feminine. Of course being pink too makes me super happy!

Untitled

Blossoming trees are one of my favourite things in the whole world.. their colour and fragility is so beautiful. I always love blossom season from March through to May and all the different ones you can find from Cherry to Apple to Magnolia and others. The colours of the Robbie Skirt and Top are reminiscent of this time of year and the blossom print brings it all together so beautifully. You get both the lingerie and the Skirt and Top in the cupcake at the FabFree HQ!

Untitled

The skin I am wearing in the pictures is the simply adorable Suzy Skin by Angelica and is their new group gift! Pru previously blogged the skin here, but I fell in love with it so had to show you it again. There is a fee to join the group of L$300 but as this is less than half the usual price of a skin plus will ensure you never miss out on future gifts, it is well worth the fee! This skin is so precious and I adore the detailing on the lips that have a certain doll-like quality to them. There are three brow options included plus a non-teeth version of the skin and you get the SLink hands and feet appliers in the package too!

Untitled

The nails I am wearing are the prize for the Paint My Nails hunt by Buttery Toast, which is a hud full of sweet pastel colours with a cute white frilled edge. Below you can see the colours included. The prize costs L$5 and comes with both manicure and pedicure!

This Little Light of Mine

Lantern Fairy 1

The inspiration for this post is the Twisted Hunt gift at Roawenwood. This beautifully crafted display case made me think of every fairy tale and bit of folklore I’ve ever heard involving the capture of a fairy or pixie! This display case includes several pose options perfect for Gorean or other fantasy genre role-play I just had to put something together. Lucky for me, one of my favorite events, The Fantasy Room, has started a new round! I always find amazing things at The Fantasy Room. So, I decided I’d take the opportunity to show off a few of the items I found there as well. Sweet Lies has this beautiful complete outfit for just $50 Lindens at The Fantasy Room. This mesh ensemble includes upper and lower arm bracelets, anklets, a mesh “dress”, and matching thong. Please note that this is a “Gorean” style outfit, so it’s meant to be revealing. That said, I think it’s perfect for role play, and it could even be worn with other clothing for a variety of looks. Also, the outfit includes a working oil lamp! Also at The Fantasy Room, I found some fun foot chains from Storybook. They are called “Tartarus Chains” and I thought the delicate chain in the curvy organic pattern was perfect for my little Lantern Fairy.

Lantern Fairy

Wanting to give my little fairy a little more magic and mischief to her look, I decided she needed some cosmetic enhancements. We all know how much I love makeup! While browsing through Swag Fest, I picked up this gorgeous bronze-ish lipstick from Pink Acid priced at just $50 lindens. The color is called “Bean” and it’s perfect for something dark and lovely, especially for fall. I paired my pretty lipstick with some upper and lower eyeliner, and a tattoo I found on the Marketplace. This little crescent moon shaped tattoo is by Evocative, and was a mere $25 lindens on the Marketplace. Also on the Marketplace, I picked up a fairy essential, wings! These delicate wings are by The Black Forest, and they are modifiable, as well as scripted. At just $10 lindens on the Marketplace, they are well worth it! I hope you like my little Lantern Fairy!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
