Twisted Magick

THMagick

Second Life’s famed Twisted Hunt has started! Known as the hardest hunt in SL, this round’s theme is  “Magick”. I’ve participated in the Twisted Hunts many times and they are always a challenge, but seriously fun. Several stores have both male and female gifts available. There  are also stores offering a little something extra for those hunters willing to take the time to participate in a little mini-game. One such store is B!asta, so don’t miss out! LNS designs is another shop participating in this edition of the Twisted Hunt with a lovely Magick inspired hair and helm set. I really thought the gifts from these two stores went well together, so I’m excited to share  them with you here! Happy Hunting!

Here are the details:

Mustache anyone?

I know I know, I’ve shown you a ton of Sugar Button freebies lately. Still, I couldn’t help but throw in one more. I saw this super cute sweater as a lucky chair prize, and it had to be mine! It’s always exciting to see your letter come up on a lucky board when the prize is something you really want. Ready to go out shopping, looking for things to go with my new sweater, I happened across these sweet little mary-jane style shoes at B!atsa. They are the current “Add Some Red” hunt gift, just gotta find the little red hearts.While out shopping around, I almost literally almost stumbled over the newest group gift from Cavalieri. Right now, group members can pick up this adorable little bob-style hair for free! Now, as we all know, I’m a bit of a Marketplace junkie. It’s there that I came across these decorative light bulbs from Lisp Bazaar. How could I resist the cute little mustaches?! Not only are they a great conversation piece, they’re animated.

Don’t miss out on these great finds! Here are the details:

Because Blondes Really Don’t Have More Fun!

Well, leave it to me to bring up the rear for the FabFree Photo Challenge (which ends today)! Better late than never, right? Actually, I think I was dragging my feet because I’m sooo embarrassed to show you my old avie pictures. But… since so many of you were brave and showed your “THEN” pictures, I figured I should pony up and do the same. No laughing, ok? Or at least, don’t laugh too loudly! :-P

Blogging Soon!

So yeah… that’s me when I first joined SL in 2010. I was a blonde, only because I’m a blonde in RL, and I thought the point of SL was that we make our avie’s look as much like our RL selves as possible. (HA! No idea where I got that idea.) I’m totally rockin’ the Linden Library hipster glasses… and see that shirt? I was so proud of myself for texturing it myself. Yikes! I wore that SAME OUTFIT for about a year and a half, until I found the Marketplace, and along with it, freebies and dollarbies. By then, I’d grown tired of being a blonde, and started wearing *B.D.R.* dollarbie hairs in the “majestic” color for several months (I have no idea where that red sweater came from, and clearly, I hadn’t found new skin or eyes yet). Shortly after that, I turned myself “ginger,” and the rest is history! :-D

As for my “NOW” picture, I’m wearing a skirt, sweater, and poncho set from Prim & Pixel. It’s not their newest group gift, but I really like the casual, boho feel of it, so I decided to show it anyway. Be sure you pick up the gift on the 2nd floor with all the other group gifts, as there is a non-gift version for sale on the 1st floor. My bracelet is a free gift from B!ASTA, and comes with 4 different gem colors. You’ll find the pink gift box on the front desk.

Be sure you check out the FabFree Photo Challenge Flickr group to see the rest of the fabulous entries! :-)

Photo Challenge #3: My New Year’s Non-Resolution

I no longer make New Year’s resolutions. At the ripe old age that I am in RL, I’ve learned – usually the hard way – that just because the calendar ticks over to January 1st, that does not mean I’m ready to make any major life changes. If it did, my house would be clean and perfectly organized, I’d have the business credential I vowed to pursue, my book would be written, and I’d be about 15 lbs thinner. Instead, I get a few weeks of success, followed by months and months (sometimes years) of guilt.

That being said, I still take time at the beginning of every year to think long and hard about life. And when I come up with something that needs fixing – which I usually do – I make a promise to myself (yes, I know that sounds a lot like a resolution, but trust me, it comes with a lot less pressure). This year, my RL promise to myself is to “be in the present.” Simplistic? Yes. But simple? Not so much. To a gal with a full plate, including a business, a family, volunteer work, and SL, among other things, it is very difficult for me to just… be. To stop and smell the roses, so to speak. I’m always thinking about what I have to do next instead of what I’m doing, and I feel like life is moving so quickly that if I close my eyes for 2 seconds, I will have missed something important. I don’t want to wake up one day and find my daughter packing up her car for college, leaving me full of regret for having missed spending as much time with her as I wanted when she was young.

To quote Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Blogging soon

Along those lines, the first major change I made in SL for 2014 was to get a new house and move into the sky. While I truly love the sim where I live, I’d really grown tired of strangers walking into my house – and staying – uninvited. So instead of moving away, I moved up. And while I’m waiting for the movers to bring my furniture, I’ve decided to sit and enjoy the quiet with my furry housemates.

Several items around me are worth mentioning: the lovely, lighted 2014 is the current group gift from ::Fabuleax::, and the vase of flowers behind it is a gift from JoHaDeZ. The packing box and books, as well as the elegant wine lights, are group gifts from tarte. Both my sandals and the cute tissue box on the book pile are Fifty Linden Friday sales items, which, as of this writing, were still on sale for 50L – probably not for much longer, though! The pretty picture on the mantel, as well as the adorable guinea pig are gacha items from ::Fabuleax::; I got lucky and managed to win 2 rares! The guinea pig comes with a cute holding pose, but he got loose, so I decided to let him play with Fiona. And finally, my house of cards was 5L on the Marketplace.

As for what I’m wearing, you can find it at B!ASTA as their New Year’s Resolution Hunt gift. I’m wearing it in honor of the many years in which I resolved to lose weight and exercise.* ;-)

May you all have a wonderful 2014 – don’t forget to enjoy it!
