Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Bunny BluesEggs, eggs, and more eggs!  It seems like half the stores in Second Life are having an Easter egg hunt. Okay, maybe not HALF, but a lot of them. We’ve been adding a couple of new Easter egg hunts to the list every day for the past week. Sooooo… if you love Easter, then you’re going to love this edition of Your Friday Hunt Report.

If you haven’t gone on a hunt yet, check out the marvelous guides at FabFree and HUNT SL. It’s easy to get going and you’ll find lots of free and very low cost goodies just by following some clues and running around like a crazy person. Ha! It’s all good fun, and you don’t REALLY have to run. You can walk sedately.

Here are the notable hunts around the grid today, April 18th, 2014. Just tap the hunt names for more information on each.

See you out on the hunt!

RPH5 - #23

Here’s another men’s gift from the Runway Perfect Hunt #5.  Second Life is for letting us do things we never could in RL, so for those of us who never made a varsity team in any sport now we can at least look like we did.

This outfit is the RPH5 male gift from CHG Fashion.  It includes a tee (jacket layer) plus rigged mesh jeans with belt, hat, jacket (in both open and zipped looks), and sneakers  – a complete outfit for only $5L.  In case you’re wondering about the purple and gold colors, the jacket and hat are the team colors for a U.S. professional basketball team, the Los Angeles Lakers, with the team logos and name carefully changed.  But despite the basketball symbolism, I’m showing it to you as a varsity football player (that’s the U.S. version of “football”) because I like the poses.

If you ladies want to color-coordinate with the varsity guy in your life, CHG has a female gift in the RPH5 too.  You’ll find the same outfit in the women’s prize along with a color coordinated mini-dress cheerleader outfit.  And, no, I’m not going to model the mini-dress for you.

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts!

YAY! The brand new Fabfree HQ is open, and it looks amazing! XiuLan really did a fantastic job of decorating! In addition to the gorgeous new building, which Love showed off this morning [HERE], there are also gatchas to be played, and all new gifties up on the walls! Xiu showed off a ton of the gifts that the HQ has to offer [HERE], and I’m here to show off a few more that are a couple of my favourites!

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_001

Firstly, the Thrilling mesh jacket from Mary Cakes is just fantabulous. I love the studded details, and the deep red colour, and it pairs really well with…

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_002

The Mona leather tank and Vela jean capris from none other than Sn@tch! The splatter on these pants is really great, and the whole outfit would be perfect for anyone looking for something a little more “urban”. Both this outfit, and the jacket above, can be found for FREE at the brand new Fabfree HQ!

kosh nails hud

My nails, which I forgot to snap a shot of, are on sale for $L10 right now from Kosh, in their marketplace shop. The listing says you can grab them free if you’re an inworld group member, but the group does cost $L22 to join. To me they’re definitely worth it either way, since you get all of the designs above in fingernails AND toenails!

sn@tch up these Fabfree HQ gifts_003

The skin I’m wearing here is one of Wow Skins‘ easter egg hunt prizes, and it was previously shown by Love [HERE]! The prizes are not free, in fact this one is the “golden egg” prize and actually costs $L50, however, in the “golden egg” pack you get 2 skins, freckles, teeth, a shape, and appliers for everything, so it’s actually a really fantastic deal!

My Lucky Day at **milky-way!!

If you haven’t been to **milky-way, it is a really cute shop with sweet designs (many Kawaii inspired) and fabulous prices!  The other day I spied this adorable off shoulder mesh dress, on someone else, and had to take a trip over to **milky-way to check it out.  It turns out that the dress is on one of the lucky boards at the main store location and the letters turn fairly quickly.  These are group boards…so you will need to join the group (FREE to join) before you can grab the items when your letter/number comes up.

I accessorized the dress with the latest release, [02] Shimmer (Color HUD 2) from MAGIKA Hair, the ::HH:: Hucci Vinnitsa Sandal [Slink High Feet compatible] in Blush (available at the current round of COLLABOR88), and this cute birds umbrella from salt. (no longer available).  The photo was shot at Rico’s Tea House using aDORKable Poses.
My lucky day at **milky-way!!Also on the **milky-way lucky boards is this wonderful mesh Spring Sweater & Pleated mini.  The texturing on this is really lovely…it looks oh so soft and perfect for those weekends filled with activities!
My lucky day at **milky-way!!

My Bunny sneakers were a steal for only 10L from Cay Crystal (CCD) on the Marketplace, my Maxine Overknee Socks (Neptune) are from Mimikri (no longer available) and my fantastic T. B. C. Animated Pom Poms are from CheerGirl AllenFREE on the Marketplace! *Warning the vendor pic is NSFW.  My pose is from aDORKable Poses and the photo was shot at Cheertopia.  Here’s a better shot of the sneakers…
My lucky day at **milky-way!!

So what are you waiting for…hop on down to **milky-way and try your luck  on the boards!  Oh, there is also a Letterman Jacket and a hand held dandelion poofer on the boards!

Have fun and stay Fabulously Free! <3 <3

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!

Bailey’s gift is this high-waisted shorts and black top combo, which includes appliers for lolas tangos!

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!

Hey fabbies! I hope you’re having a great weekend, I know I am! I’ve spent my weekend fishing at Sn@tch! It’s always so exciting when they release a new fishing outfit, isn’t it? The quality of Ivey’s items never cease to amaze me, and the gifts (fishing outfits included!) are always extremely generous, and this outfit is no exception! Oceanside amusement park has 23 pieces for you to fish for, and they can be caught with either the casual or pro 7Seas fishing rod, I believe the demo rod will also work, but that disappears after 10 catches.

There are so many ways to combine and customize this outfit, it would be really great for just about any occasion, and because it includes appliers for lolas tangos and the ghetto booty, it’s perfect for everyone!

By the oceanside_005

They say that the devil’s in the details, and the little things included with this outfit are definitely my favourite parts! In addition to all of the clothing pieces you see above, and more, the outfit also includes shoes, a really lovely necklace, and matching makeup.

Stay fabulous, everybody!

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.
