RPH5-#27(69 Park Ave)

This is for all the Fab Free guys out there who think Menstuff and Make Him Over are the only hunts where men can find high quality, free or nearly free items.  Love, Xia and Xiu have been blogging The Runway Perfect Hunt #5 gifts.  Yes it’s true that most of the 51 stops on it have female gifts, but a couple of them have men’s prizes.  Today I’m showing you two gifts guys can pick up from RPH5, plus a couple of other freebies.

The Cayman outfit in sandstone is from 69 Park Ave GQ and features a jacket layer shirt, brown mesh pants, and dress shoes – a complete outfit for only $5L.  It’s a nice casual outfit for an evening out or at home with your lady.  And while you’re looking around the store for the gift be sure to check out the group gift. 69 Park Ave GQ gives out nice ones and they change frequently, so it’s well worth the small joining fee to get them.  The pose is one of five male poses offered by KaTink in the RPH5.

Wow Skins Easter Egg Hunt

.__WoW Skins__. EASTER EGG HUNT!
WoW Skins is holding an Easter Egg Hunt at their mainstore from April 11th – April 22nd and during this fun event, you will find 10 hidden Easter Eggs priced at 15L each, as well as a special GOLDEN EGG with an extra special prize.  I completed this hunt last night, and found that there are a whopping NINE skin sets to be found!  There is also an outfit and a set of lipsticks, but my focus today is these skins!!  I <3 Laura and Cassandra, however I think my favourite has got to be the skin I found in the golden egg – Soraya and amazingly it came with all kinds of goodies like a shape, tons of appliers and freckles layers too!

Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and PINKY*GALS Gift!

Hi all!

Today I have items from three stores that are participating in the Grab The Eggs Before They Poof Hunt and one super cute FREE dress from PINKY*GALS!

First a little info on how the Hunt works.  It is a bit different from your regular hunt…in the Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt you go to the link I provided and you will find instructions, photos of all the items in the hunt and HINTS on where to look for the eggs.  There are several eggs in each store, containing one item, and the trick is finding the spot, via the hint given, where you might see the egg…BUT you will need to keep a keen eye on that spot because the eggs randomly appear and disappear!  So you may see it one moment and then the next moment it is gone!  It is a great hunt and loads of fun..with fantastic prizes to be found!  Let’s get hunting!

My first outfit is from Sky, it is this adorable pink top, shorts, handbag, bunny headband and flower ring! Such a cute outfit and yours FREE if you find all five eggs before they disappear!  Remember to use the HINTS…they really do help.  The hair is Tomorrow from MAGIKA (not free), the shoes are Plumeria Sandals Rare (gacha item from previous Arcade) from Pure Poison,  and the pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

Next we have an oh-so-cute Kawaii inspired outfit from Hapi Rabi!  This outfit comes with the bunny bag, bunny ears, dress, knee socks and prim nails (not worn) and is FREE…all you need to do is spot those eggs!  The hair is Tomoko2 (Ruby, limited color) a previous lucky board prize from “”D!va”” Hair.  The Ribbon Cupcake Mouthie is 25L for a transferable fat pack of 8 colors…available at [:Kawaii Couture:] and the shoes are part of an outfit called Cotton Candy Cutie, 25L, also available at [:Kawaii Couture:]!   My pose is from aDORKable Poses.
Grab The Eggs Before They Disappear Hunt

My final outfit shows only a few of the items available from Perch.  Follow the hints, find the eggs and you will be given this cute birdie bag, lunch box and sneakers (there are also a non mesh top and shorts not shown) absolutely FREE!!  Catch those disappearing eggs!  The mesh dress is a FREE gift (no group join required) from PINKY*GALS.  *Note…the SLURL link for PINKY*GALS takes you to the Love Soul shopping mall…walk out of the mall and the shop will be in the first building to your left. My soda is Dollypop from [:Kawaii Couture:] and my pose is a previous subscriber gift from Diesel Works.  The hair bow is Kyary PonPon Alice Bow – Creamy Yellow…available for FREE from .:Midi:Nette:. on the MarketPlace and my hair is Norma (Ruby limited color) a previous COLLABOR88 item from “”D!va”” Hair.

Take those HINTS and SLURLS  and Grab The Eggs Before They Poof!

Fab Advice – Edition #14

Untitled

********

QUESTION #1:  I am a new resident in SecondLife or a “newb” as I have been called and I would like to know how I can get people to speak to me???  Most that I approach see my rez in date and run for the hills. :( Thank you for this blog.  I’m sexy this early on in the game  ~ thanks to you.

Love Says:  It’s hard being the new girl/guy in most types of places, and Second Life is no different.  Everything is foreign in this world and it will take time to learn the ropes, and meet your friends and family.  My advice is to just explore different sims, join groups you find interest in and be friendly  but respectful :).  If you IM someone and they don’t respond, just move on.  Not everyone is in SL to meet people.  Some come to escape for peace and quiet!   Thank you for your kind words regarding the FabFree Blog – we are glad to help!

Xiu Says:  First, welcome to SL!  I would suggest finding things that you enjoy…such as music, art, books, poetry, education, building etc.  Then look for groups to join that focus on those activities…for example Builder’s Brewery has been around forever and it is a fantastic place to meet people while exploring the amazing plethora of FREE classes they offer.  You can find a directory of their classes, like photography, jewelry making, clothing design etc., right at their landing point.  Join Facebook and start chatting people up there or start following blogs that feature posts about activities and places to see around the grid.  Daniel Voyager, Quan Lavender and Eddi Haskell all have fantastic blogs that feature an amazing array of activities and places to visit on their blogs; you can also friend them on Facebook to help get you started with making connections there. If you’re into photography, there is a HUGE presence and a ton of SL groups you can join on Flickr; where you can meet fellow SLers and establish connections there. I’m not covering dance clubs, though it is a great place to see people, I think there are better places to truly meet people and make friends.  You can also find lots of opportunities, through reading the Linden Labs updates on the SL dashboard, to volunteer for events…where you will be helping others AND making friends!  Good luck and have fun! <3 <3

********

QUESTION #2:  what are some fun and free activities to do in SL?

Love Says:  Almost everything in Second Life is free!  There are of course some things that cost money… like shopping and there are fees to enter a small amount of sims, but many, many fun activities are free!  Freebie shopping of course is one of my favourites, but you can also visit events, attend live shows, visit clubs, go to poetry readings, and open mic nights!  There are also amusement parks and RP sims if you are into that kind of thing!

Xiu Says:  My favorite activities are exploring and sailing…well shopping also, but that isn’t always free lol.  For sailing…look for Sailor’s Cove or Fisher’s Island Yacht Club…both are public places connected to the Bake Sea.  You will be able to find a lot of information on sailing, classes for sailing, racing, and various sailing groups you can join to become more involved with sailing.  You can also get a free starter boat at those locations.  As for exploring…there is the SL Destination Guide where you can find great places to explore; many also have great interactive things to do, at their location, as well.  You can also do a search for Quan Lavender and Eddi Haskell…both individuals have really great SL travel blogs; where you will find so many great places to explore and activities to enjoy!  If you like RP (Role Play), there are TONS of places you can explore and often you will be able to get started for free.  If you’d like to try flying in SL…do a search for airfields…they will often have temp rezzers where you can rez a plane or helicopter and fly around the Blake Sea.  There are also a ton of Art Galleries, Exhibits, Museums, Educational Centers and Live Music venues…use your search option and enter those key words/phrases into it…you’ll be surprised how many places there are to have FREE fun! <3 <3

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!

The [:Kawaii Couture:] “”D!va””

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Saucey Sinister…the owner and creator behind Dollypop and [:Kawaii Couture./Dirty Dollies:].  I love Kawaii so I was excited to visit Dollypop Adventure Land…where I found an entire sim themed for everything Kawaii, Doll, Dolly, Cosplay and CUTE!  Exploring Dollypop Adventure Land was a real treat…but the [:Kawaii Couture:] was even more fun to discover!  I found this adorable Tea Party Dress for only 25L (non mesh)…it comes with the dress and socks.  The shoes are from another [:Kawaii Couture:] outfit called Cotton Candy Cutie Doll; also only 25L!  My [:Kawaii Couture:] Beach Cutie Headband (the pink poka dot glasses with the cute bow) was a wonderful gift and is currently not available.  There are also lots of fun gacha machines scattered all around the Dollypop Adventure Land sim…where I won these sweet little Flip Flop Earrings RARE (green polka dots) for only 10L on my first try!
The [:Kawaii Couture:] "" D!va""The hair I am wearing is another FREE lucky board hair, Asami (ruby limited color), from ““D!va”” Hair…no group join required and it comes with two bang styles as well as a detachable side ponytail!  The sweet air chair balloon prop (with pose), from flowey., is available at the latest round of COLLABOR88 for 88L…and it comes with four different watercolor choices!  The yummy little Grey Bunny mouthy is available on the Marketplace for 10L from .::VioleNt Chemicals::.,  the Kyary PonPon Glasses – Sweet Pink (with bows or without) are FREE, from .:Midi:Nette:., also on the Marketplace.  I found the cutest Easter Back Pack, from Flippant,  on the Marketplace for only 25L!  I previously showed the *Paint Special* Easter2013 Bunneh Ears, from K-Room, for only 1L HERE.  I also previously featured the cute nose butterfly, from :ECCO:. , as part of a set…HERE.
The [:Kawaii Couture:] "" D!va""This sugary sweet fat pack of Easter bunny peeps rings, from [sugar buzz], is only 5L on the Marketplace and the -{ZOZ}- Grass Bunny Polish HUD (Slink compatible fingers and toes), is available for 1L for group members (100L to join); at the main store location.  There are two nail HUDS, one for fingernails and one for toes, with 12 different color options!  -{ZOZ}- is definitely worth the join fee, if you are a Slink polish addict, they do an amazing job with their designs and are very generous to their group members!
The [:Kawaii Couture:] ""D!va""

If you’re looking for fashion that is fresh and cute, try a little [:Kawaii Couture:] today!

Happy shopping and stay Fabulous! <3 <3

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!
