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!

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.

Epic Findings at the Spring Fling Hunt

You have one more day to hop on over to Epicosity’s Spring Fling Easter Hunt & Market! The folks at Epicosity are celebrating Spring, and have invited some wonderful designers to join in the celebration. Over 22 eggs are hidden in the Spring Fling area, but you only have until April 3rd (tomorrow) to find them! I didn’t find all the eggs, but I’ll show you a few of the items I did find. You’ll be looking for a small Easter egg… all prizes are free (oL).

A couple of other items of interest here: my eyes are the April group gift from IKON that Love showed you earlier today. The Ardent Eyes are IKON’s newest release, and are currently being featured exclusively at The Boutique. Seriously, they are spectacular, so don’t pass up this chance to get a pair for FREE! Also, you can pick up this Flora hair by D!va for only a few more days on sale at Collabor88. Two versions are included, and you can wear it with or without the texture-changing ribbon and flowers.

Don’t forget: I showed you a couple of the Spring Fling Hunt prizes a few days ago here. Now, get out there and find those eggs! :-)

OoOoOoO This is a fantastic hunt that just makes me feel SO SPRINGY with all of the gorgeous gifts being themed in a sweet shade of lavender :)  The Lavender Hill Hunt is put on by Monochrome Hunts and runs  from February 25th – March 10th.  Each prize is 5L and the icon you are looking for is a lavender coloured swatch.  There are approximately 20 stores participating in this hunt – so you’ll be done in a jiffy!

You can find a complete participating shop listing with hints, an example of the hunt icon as well as a prize preview.

Here’s What’s New in 2013!

Believe it or not, I spent New Year’s Eve in bed with the flu… or something just as bad. Not the best kickoff to 2013, eh? But while I could still hold my head up, I spent some time looking for gifts in the New in 2013 Hunt. I don’t know if it was my fuzzy head or what, but I’ll admit that there were a few items I could not find. And another was so big that I could not wear it without eating more Christmas cookies and adding some Lolas! ;-) It’s a fun hunt with great prizes, and here’s a mash-up of what I did find… plus a few bonuses.

2013_3f

Above, I’m wearing the complete outfit, including top, pants, and sweater boots, from Shattered by Aluinn (#31). I’ve added the breezy L’Bow Flow by DRIFT (#22). Surrounding me are 4 very stylish lamps from [CIRCA] (#4), and the Fly Away decal is by Wall Candy (#1). My pose is from a set of 3 by Demise of Flight (#24).

These charming CandyApple eyes (below) are part of the gift from IKON (#23). Note: there are 2 sets of IKON eyes in 2 different locations, so keep looking until you find the other set! My Helga hair is from *Alice Project* (#15). It comes with a color-changing HUD, but let me warm you: if you’re going to change the color, read the instructions that come with the hair (notecard in the package). I didn’t (I blame my virus-addled brain), and went back to the store twice for another batch before I realized that I needed to read the instructions! I can’t emphasize this enough. :-)

2013_33f

2013_6f

These Black Cat Leggings are from -ATTIC- (#9), and the mesh arm warmers and cowl scarf are from .::IRON CLAW::. (#11). I added an Intrinsic Tank from JANE (free / 0L) and some boots by Gos (not free). The cute bunny bookcase is from [End of Daze] (#21). My pose is another in the set from Demise of Flight (#24).

2013_5f

This lovely, LUMINOUS gown is the gift from [Liv-Glam] (#25); the bodice is mesh and comes in standard sizing. The mesh cubed bookcase behind me is from ChiC buildings (#17), and the table lamp waaay up high is from .:Senzafine (#3).

This stunning make-up (below) is the gift from Adore&Abhor (#13). The shimmery shadow really complements my icy blue Yue eyes from [UMEBOSHI] (#18). I added the Chantelle Gold/Ruby jewelry set, which is the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from Beloved Jewelry, and the new January gift hair from >TRUTH<, which Love blogged about here. Call me “old school,” but I do love an updo with a formal gown (plus, I just couldn’t wait to try on the hair!). :-)

2013_4f

2013_7f

Here, I’m wearing the purple Duffle Coat from OMG! (#36, mesh, standard sizing), along with the Cool Blue jeans from 20.FIVE (#26 – ironic), and a pair of Boardwalkers from ::Ci Co.:: (#8). I added another tank from JANE, and the Silver Heart necklace and choker, which was Christmas gift from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery (0L / free to join / check notices). My pose is the last in the set from Demise of Flight (#24). The precariously stacked bookcase next to me is from [Atooly] (#12). Is that a 13? 8O

2013_2f

I really need to get out more. So here I am sitting on my new beach house from ..:HC Creations:.. (#29). It’s perfect for a warm-weather getaway – in case you’re super sick of snow by now – and comes with several extra rezzable items (the flower boxes and some posters inside), as well as a little sleeping nook upstairs.

Below, you can get a better view of my MG necklace. I added these cool sunglasses from AZOURY (#19). 2013′s so bright, I gotta wear shades!

2013_1f

The New in 2013 Hunt ends on January 20th, so you’ve got plenty of time to find these great gifts. You’ll be looking for a blue “2013.” Please visit the official blog for hints and more information.

Furnishings Friday #19 – Charmed Creations & A One Eyed Jack

punkin

It’s Furnishings Friday #19 and this week I would like to feature The  Charming Autumn Decorating Side Table & Artwork you see hanging on the wall!  This wonderful autumn furnishings set  has a land impact of 18 prims for both pieces and  can be found at Charmed Creations as their Falling Leaves Hunt gift.  I have done a few posts with prizes in The Falling Leaves Hunt which you can find at the following links.

There is just a few days left in this hunt with it ending on October 24th.  The icon you are looking for is an orange leaf.

If you are looking for a fun activity to do this month, head down to the Chimeric Arts Pumpkin Patch and bring a friend!  There you can pick a pumpkin from the patch, and carve a unique jack-o-lantern for yourself.  All of the pumpkins are free and you can carve as many as you like and keep them.  I’m calling mine “One Eyed Jack”!  These pumpkins are mesh, so you will need to be on a mesh compatible viewer to see them!

patchIf you look really closely within the pumpkin patch you may find an extra surprise! The hosts of this Pumpkin Patch are also participating in The Trick Or Treat Trail Hunt.  If you come across a crow in the patch, give it a slap because you’ll be gifted with the Chimeric Fashions Pumpkin Mask shown below.

The Comfy Yoga Pants and Lazy Sunday Sweater in Black can both be found at The Black Only Fashion Event for 100L each.  These are not free, you’ll have to forgive me – but they are fabulous!!
