Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Music Is My Soul HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, April 15. The Easter hunts are in full swing, with lots of sim and store egg hunts, but only a few of them are on the top 10 today.

Four of these hunts are getting a final rush of interest because they end TODAY. If you want to get them before they poof, you should grab your ride (and a friend)… and hit the hunt highway.

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 bust a move and go on them.

See you out on the hunt!

Find the umbrellas at the spring market fair!

Hey fabbies! The spring market fair at old europe started recently, and there are a ton of wonderful designers showcasing their spring-themed products at the event. In addition to the abundance of springy goods, most of the designers have out a special free gift hidden somewhere on the sim in a little umbrella! I’ve chosen a few of my favourites to show you, but there are a TON more gifts to be found (NOTE: Hunt related LM’s in this post will lead you to the EVENT, not the designers main store location because the hunt is SIM-WIDE, not grid-wide!).

Morea style has out this lovely soft cream coloured dress as their gift. I didn’t want to take this off, it’s so floaty and light, and would be perfect for a picnic or a day at the beach!

If you’re looking for accessories instead of clothes, then you should grab the necklace from Goddess fantasies and the eyes from Amacci. The necklace is resize scripted, and the eyes come in 3 system layer sizes, 2 types (regular and dark) AND pair of mesh eyes!

 

Have fun shopping, hunting, and be sure to stay fabulous!

Chest Treasures Bday Hunt

The Chest Treasures Mall is celebrating their first birthday! As part of the celebration, many of the shops have put out a $5 linden hunt gift. Each participating store will have a sign outside their shop, or at the entrance. This hunt is great for grabbing up some cheaply-priced but well made clothing to go with all those “body enhancements” many of us have! hehehe As a girl who occasionally likes to be a bit more busty, I decided to show the gifts I liked most wearing my Lolas Tango. Just a quick note, this hunt may not be for everyone, considering the Chest Treasures Mall is an Adult sim, and many of the stores are Adult themed. Please keep that in mind and otherwise have a great time hunting cute little cupcakes! The hunt started April 7th and will continue through the 21st, so don’t miss out.

Here are a few examples of the gifts I liked the most.

You’re so vain!

The latest hunt from the sinister goth crew is centered around the sin vanity. I had a great time putting together a few outfits from the pieces that make me look aaaaaabsolutely gorgeous! This hunt has just about everything you could possibly need to put together a whole outfit including a hair, multiple skins, nails, clothing (for him and her!), and accessories!

You're so vain_001

 

Can’t be gorgeous without an amazing skin, right? This skin comes from Pixystix, and is gift #13 in the hunt. My equally gorgeous (and fluffy!) hair is from stop #38, LaNoir Soleil designs. Even my eyes are a gift! These come from VersaEye, stop #44, and the gift package includes mesh eyes in several sizes (even petite!) and system eyes as well!

You're so vain_002

 

Mirror mirror, in my hand, who’s the prettiest in all the land? Why me, of course! My choker, which is colour change via menu, is a gift from Souzou Ein, and is gift #12. Here I’ve paired it with the female gift from #48, No salvation designs, and I’m reflecting on my outer beauty with gift #16, which is from Witches & rats, and includes the pose and the mesh handheld mirror!

You're so vain_003

My second outfit includes the very sexy corset dress from Toxic High, which is gift #8

You're so vain_004

 

Next we have the female gift from #17, Wicked sin creations. There are gifts for both genders in the pack, and the female gift comes with both the leather skirt I’m wearing and the sweater top.

You're so vain_005

 

and finally, last but most certainly not least, here we have gift #29, which is from Cae.b!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Lost MineHello Fabulistas! It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time to bring you up to date on all the notable hunts out there on the Second Life grid. More Easter themed hunts have bloomed in the last week and all those Easter eggs are lying around out there, just waiting for you to pick up. It proves to be another great week for hunting!

Hunts are a fabulous way to pick up a lot of free (or nearly free) goodies. Store owners hide them for you to find. All you need to do is follow the hints and go find them! FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks. Or… find an experienced friend to show you the ropes. A lot of hunts also have groups to join so you can ask for a little extra help if you get stuck on a clue.

So here are the hunts. Just poke the names for more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Hopping and Hunting in Holy SHIrT, D!va, K-Room and ::YaYo::!!

Greetings!

With Easter just around the corner, I have found all kinds of hunts and sales hopping ALL over SL! Starting with this adorable mesh bunny dress from Holy SHIrT! The dress is FREE as part of the sim wide MC Fashion Stores and Events Easter Egg Hunt…just find the little decorated Easter eggs, placed in the stores and around the sim, click on it and buy the item for 0L! There are TONS of eggs to be found as well as lots of really great deals from the stores on the MC Fashion Stores and Events sim.  I needed something cute to accompany the dress…so I decided to do a little hunting and hopping around the Marketplace.  I found this “My plushie rabbit..with Easter basket” for only 1L…from DramaZone!

~Hopping into Easter~

I also found these *Paint Special* Easter2013 Bunneh Ears, from K-Room, for only 1L.
~Hopping into Easter~I finished off this look with the ::YaYo:: – Bunny Face & Stripes – Dollarbie…just 1L from ::YaYo::.  My gorgeous hair is a previous Lucky Board prize, Nana (Ruby) limited color, from “”D!va” Hair.  Not to worry…there are always fantastic styles up fro grabs in the “”D!va”” Lucky Boards and NO group join is required.  The color is limited to the Ruby I have on…but is is sooooooooo sweet, it’s a fun color for spring and a great way to try out this fabulous designer’s hair.  You can also join the “”D!va”” group for free and you will find quite a few group gifts on the second floor!
~Hopping into Easter~

You can’t see my nails very well but these Slink compatible appliers, from Ch’Know Nails:  Summer Skies – Fingernails, are so cute and only 20L (for each set fingers/toes)…I couldn’t help but to include them in this post!

You’re the apple of my eye!

So, the apple of my eye hunt has begun! This is a little super quick and fun hunt that’s got a little something for everyone. There are only 13 stops on this hunt, and I was able to tackle it in about half an hour, so if you’ve got precious little spare time, this hunt is perfect for you! As usual, I’m only showing off a few of the gifts from this hunt, because where would be the fun in hunting if you knew everything you were getting ahead of time?

You're the apple of my eye_001

 

My top and capris are from stop #1 in the hunt, Zanzo. Both pieces are rigged mesh, and come in all 5 standard sizes!

You're the apple of my eye_002

 

My Earrings are from stop #3, Arise, The makeup I have on is from stop #9, Lovely Disarray, my glasses are from stop #10, X-Sight, and my lip piercing is compliments of stop #12, Ellabella! There really is something for everyone on this hunt!

You're the apple of my eye_003

 

Here we have 2 fun beanbag chairs in appleicious colours, and apple art panels from Circa, as well as apple cutout wall art from Frogstar! These are #’s 5 and 13 on the hunt.
