Your Friday Hunt Report

 

HUNT SL Renaissance Hunt IVThere are lots of great hunts going on right now, and your Friday Hunt Report is here to tell you all about them. I’ve only been on a fraction of these hunts, but I did just finish unpacking all the boxes I got on the Renaissance Hunt. I ended up with some fabulous furniture for my next house remodel!

I encourage you to give hunting a try if you haven’t already done so. It’s a fun way to see a lot of stores on the  Second Life grid, and you will end up with a lot of free (or almost free) stuff. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with tips to help get you started. With all these great hunts going on, there’s no time like the present.

So let’s get to the hunts shall we?  Click the hunt names here to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Dita likes B!ASTA @ the Cart Sale.

Hooray!! It’s that time of year again, the Biannual Wash Cart Sale! Even before I started blogging for FabFree, this was one of my favourite events to go to. How can you beat a great selection of L$10 items to buy, from so many different designers? You really can’t.

B!ASTACart1

I am going to show off 2 of the great finds from the B!ASTA cart. While I have a clear favourite outfit, it was really tough to choose which of the others to show you, as I really liked everything, but I managed to settle on a great short and top set.

B!ASTACart2

If you couldn’t tell from it being featured in my first picture, I just love the Walk the Dog fitmesh dress, and I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. It has a great retro vibe.

B!ASTACart3

The Hug Me suede shorts, combined with the Just Darling, ruffled, sleeveless blouse, make up the Hug Me Darling outfit. It’s a great summery look, and lucky for us, you can find summer throughout SL no matter what the season is in RL.

B!ASTACart7

Like all Wash Cart Sale items, both of these are only L$10 each, and they are a steal at that price. As you can see in the shot above, there are quite a few other great outfits to choose from on this cart, but honestly, you just need to TP over there and take a look for yourself, and here is your direct taxi.

B!ASTACart5

I was lucky enough to find a great retro feel skin to go along with my favourite Dog dress. I am wearing the -=>> G.C <<=- Dita- Umber Tone Gift for SLF&O from Genesis Creations, and it is a free gift for SLF&O group members. It comes with your choices of dark brows, and no brows, cleavage, and no cleavage, as well, there are an assortment of appliers.  The matte red lipstick works so well with the red dress, I think I am just going to save this whole outfit :)

B!ASTACart6

To finish off my look, I had to have the right manicure, and as Love mentioned HERE, alaskametro has released some new SLink mani and pedi sets. The Vamp set in silver was perfect, and the price of L$25 was even more perfect.

OK lovelies, I must be off, more carts to see, more wonderful things to add to my inventory! Until next time, TTFN.

We’ve got gypsy style going on!

Howdy lovlies!! I have drug Shamic up to my picture-taking platform this evening, as he and I recently went over to MishMash and got some great free outfits for the Travelling with Gypsies Hunt, so of course he needed to model his with me.

gypsystyle

The Travelling with Gypsies Hunt is a free hunt that has some great gypsy themed gifts. Don’t Shamic and I look cute together? The female MishMash hunt gift comes with this gorgeous mesh maxi skirt with sash (of which there are standard sized mesh, and a fitted mesh version), and your choice of 4 different tops; 1 mesh, rouched blouse, and 3 system layer tops, pictures of all 4, closeup, are below. You also get 3 chain necklaces, 1 choker necklace, a pair of earrings, and a pair of arm cuffs, and bracelets. The necklaces are fun, as you can wear all 4 of them at once since they are all of differing lengths.

gypsystyle2

Shamic’s outfit, while it does not come with as many top options, is just as nice. The drawstring pants, and vest, are both mesh, in the standard sizes, and you also get the 3, chain necklaces, earrings and arm bands. I just love the texture on the vest, you really do need to see it in person.

gypsystyle3

Both outfits are in a single hunt item, and the hint for this gift is : “Don’t step on me!!!” There is a blog page that has hints for each store as well as preview pictures, HERE. There are a lot of nice gifts for this hunt, with quite a few mens gifts. I love when a hunt has a lot of variety :) You have until September 30 to go grab these gifts, so don’t wait too long, it will be over before you know it.

Alrighty, that is it for us, but I will be back soon :) Until then, TTFN!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Black & Purple HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, September 16.

A few new hunts started yesterday, and these have jumped right to the top of our chart. These look fun and I’ll definitely be checking them out. You should too.

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 start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Good evening Fabulouses!  I have yet another post for you tonight!  I must be on a roll ;D.  Tonight I am showing you the Lyrical B!zarre Templates Daze Dress that you can pick up for free by locating the hidden cupcake at FabFree Headquarters for The FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt.  If you happened to pick this dress up within the first week of the hunt, and you opened up the package to find that the alpha layer was missing, please do go back and pick it up again.  The designer has added in the missing alpha and the dress is simply adorable!

The FabFree 7th Birthday Hunt ends tomorrow, September 16th and midnight SLT, so make sure you take some time to pick them all up before they are gone for good!  If you’d like to see the full prize preview, you can visit THIS LINK, which is a detailed hunt page that Tiana put together for us!

Dancing Barefoot in leaves…with sandals.

I told you I would be back! This time I have a few group gifts, and a hunt gift to show you, so freebie lovers, rejoice! I know, that is every single one of you lovely readers, really though, who doesn’t love a good freebie?

bohodancing1

I’m starting out with this really cute Boho Blouse from B!ASTA. The [ B! ] :DANCING BAREFOOT: Boho blouse, comes with a texture change hud, and allows you to change the colour of your top, with 7 different choices. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. It is part of the “Travel with the Gypsies” hunt, which started Sept. 7th, and runs until Sept. 30th, and all gifts for this hunt are free. So you are going to have to do a little hunting in store to find it, but here’s a hint to help : “You better check if you got a hole in your pocket – I guess you have lost that coin there, while we were drinking our hot chocolate?”

bohodancing2

To go with my lovely shirt, I found these ‘not so boho’ skinny jeans as a group gift from Wertina. Who says you can’t mix styles? LOL. These lovely, green jeans are mesh, with the standard sizes all included. There are several other group gifts for you to grab while there as well, including the poppy dress,originally shown by Love HERE. The group is free to join, and all the group gifts are free. I may even be back to show you another gift tomorrow ;)

bohodancing4

To top my look off, I needed some fun, bright coloured earrings. Luckily, [free bird] had me covered. Like Wertina, [free bird] keeps many of their previous group gifts out for everyone. One of these past gifts, are the lovely Splash of Color Earrings. With so many colours on them, they will go with practically any outfit you put together. The group is free to join, and the gifts are free, so make sure you grab all the other wonderful gifts while you are there for these earrings.

bohodancing3

Whew…I do believe that I am totally done for the day now. My Saturday was unusually busy, and my bed is calling my name, very loudly. So, I hope you all have a great night, and I will most definitely be back tomorrow. Until then, you know the drill…TTFN *waves*

Your Friday Hunt Report

Green Mire IIIt’s Friday Fabulous Fans! That means it’s time to tell  you about the plethora of hunts going on. Yes, I do mean plethora! I have a whole big list of kick-ass hunts for you, and if you can’t find a theme you like… well, you’re not trying hard enough *grin*. Royalty, fantasy, alien abductions, school… the various hunt themes abound.

New to the hunt game? FabFree and HUNT SL have pages devoted to getting you started. You should beware however… hunting can be highly addictive, and your inventory may get bloated with all that free (or very nearly free) stuff.

Let’s get going! Just prod the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – September “Here Kitty Kitty!”

Hello everyone! So, when I heard about the theme for this month’s photo challenge, I couldn’t have been more excited. I kinda live for my pets in RL, and SL is no different. Meet Spark, the black and orange Firestorm kitty, Niege, the pearly white snow kitty, Asher, my simple but no less special grey boy, and the newest addition Scorch.

kittycats1

Spark was the one who started my cat collection here in SL. Some of you may remember, that lovely black kitty with the fiery accents was a free gift from KittyCatS in celebration of the Firestorm Viewer’s 3rd birthday, last year. This year, since last year’s KittyCat was so popular, they have created a new one for Firestorms recent 4th birthday. The little orange cutie in the picture’s below is called the Fireball KittyCat, and is free for everyone! The Fireball is just like last years Firestorm in that you do not require food to keep them healthy. You can play with them, carry them around, and even have them follow you as you go out shopping. I picked my guy up at the party that was held last week, but even though the party is long over, you can still head over to the KittyCatS main store and grab your free copy of the Fireball.

kittycats3

While I could easily make this post just about the cats, I needed to wear something in my pictures! The OMG Room started its current round last week, and I found this super cute striped dress at the back of the room up in the gifts area. The RD Style Striped Mesh Dress comes in the standard sizes, and is materials ready, giving it this lovely sheen when you move around. At only L$2, it is a total bargain! Don’t you just love the details of the chains on the belt? If you noticed that the cats were not the only ones with pointy ears, you will be pleased to hear that my fun imeow headband, from pr!tty, is a free group gift at the current round of Oneword. You get 2 versions, one with pearls, as I am wearing, and one without.The group is free to join, and there is another group gift available that I do not have on, so you might as well head on over and see what it is ;) If you couldn’t guess by the kitty ears, the word for this round is Cat. You have until the end of the month to check out this event.

kittycats2

OK, my critters have had enough of this posing for pictures thing and are running away. I guess I better go give them a little loving to make up for me forcing them to sit still for so long, LOL. Until next time, TTFN *waves*
