Dotty dancing, at the beach, oh yeah!

Hi there, I am back, with more dotty finds from the Do the Dot Hunt! Are you tired of polka dots yet? The correct answer is never, btw :P

dancindot1

Heading back to lots of colour, this summery “O’Dots” Outfit  in pink, with tiny black dots, is from Broken Glass Boutique. Both pieces are mesh, in standard sizes, with the little buckle and flexi ribbons on the pants as separate attachments. I really like the fun and free feeling of this outfit, which can easily work for lounging around, or like I am doing right now…dancing on a beach deck. I did choose to wear a bra with the shirt (which also happened to be a polka dot pattern, but I did not get it on the hunt), just because I liked the effect of the little bit of black peeking out underneath.

I paired up my O’Dots outfit with the cute Dots Me Up Flats for SLink flat feet from Harmony Designs. These are, of course, another Do the Dot Hunt prize! You can never have too many polka dot shoes, in my opinion., and I really like the leather look of the texture on these, especially when you get up close.

So, I know you all know this already, but just to reiterate…all the prizes on the Do the Dot Hunt are free, and you are looking for a white and black polka dot ball. There is also a hints and previews page HERE.

Before I finish this post up, I wanted to show you all what the Essences group gift skin, Linka, for the Totally Top Shelf group, looked like with my shape. Tiana has already shown this beauty, HERE and HERE, and she looks gorgeous in it, but one of the things I love about all of us being able to look how we want…the same skin on 2 different shapes can look way different, so I thought you all would enjoy seeing the difference.

Ok, that is all for me for now, I am still trying to decide if you all want to see some more polka dot stuff or not, as there are lots more things I could show you from this hunt. I guess you all will just have to wait and see! LOL. Until then, TTFN!!

Time to kick those shoes off, but they are such nice shoes…oh the dilemma!

Phew…what a week it has been for me!  Even with as much fun as I have had doing the Do the Dot Hunt, tonight, all I wanted to do is just sit down with my shoes off, in a comfy chair. Lucky for me, this hunt has the right gifts for me to do just that :) LOL

seateddot1

I may as well start off with the comfy chair. {Sickly SWEET} is one of the several non-apparel stores participating in the Do the Dot Hunt, and I really like the simplicity of the design of the Helena Chair with the fun pattern of the ever-present theme of this hunt, dots :) The chair comes with 6 animations built-in, and depending on your body shape, they all can work well for any gender. Plus, there is an adjust button in the menu as well, so even if you find that you are sunk into the pillow, or hovering off to the left, you can adjust yourself to your heart’s content and fit perfectly. Remember, the gifts on this hunt are free, and you are looking for a ball that is white with black polka dots.

seateddot3

As much as I want to take my shoes off, as most people do at the end of a long day, I had troubles taking off these lovely shoes, Meshell Black-White, that are the hunt gift from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Now, all you non-SLink feet loving gals out there, and I know there are many of you that just don’t vibe with mesh feet for whatever reason, these shoes are meant for the standard SL avatar feet! I’m just wearing my feet in the pics because I love the nail polish I have on my toes which is only for SLink feet, what can I say, I’m addicted :P That does not mean that I don’t still appreciate a great standard foot shoe, and with the classic black and white polka dot pattern, these babies are awesome.

seateddot4

Speaking of classic, the hunt gift from Sky is a total classic, with its cute little peplum skirt. This sweet dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, and it is so easy to accessorize, it just lends itself to any colour and style of jewelry.

seateddot2

Lucky for me, there is a great jewelry gift from Freya’s Finest  for the hunt, a texture change choker and earrings, of which you can’t see the earrings through my hair. Every bit of these pieces is texture change. You can use the provided HUD to change the texture of the metal as well as the ring of jewels in the middle, but if you want to change the texture of the ribbon, you just need to click on it and a menu will pop-up, you can also change the metal and jewels texture through the menu as well. The earrings match the jeweled ring on the choker perfectly. The choker has mod ability, so you can make it fit perfectly.

Alright, I think my bed is now calling me, I’ve lounged around too much to want to do anything more tonight :P Oh, and since I have yet to mention this in my other posts about this hunt, I’ll tell you now; many of the stores have colourful polka-dot pathways showing you the area their gift is hidden in, so really, even if this is a first time hunt for you, it is a pretty hunter friendly one, especially when combined with the hints given HERE.

So, goodnight for now, I still have 1 or 2 more things I want to show you from this hunt, so until then, TTFN! *waves a shoe at you*

Im Forever Black-Eyed

Its the middle of August and there have been a fresh batch of events that have started over the last week. Today I am going to be showing you some of the freebies and dollarbies from The Black Fashion Fair. There are quite a few freebies and dollarbies here so be sure to check back to the blog over the coming days as I’ll be showing more very soon! The Fair operates by having a fixed landing point, but I have given SLURL’s to each booth. It won’t teleport you directly but hopefully it will show a beacon to guide you.

The Plastik is always very generous with their gift boxes at their mainstore and at events and their gift box at The Black Fashion Fair is no exception. The gift box costs L$10 to purchase but there are several items of mesh clothing inside for you to incorperate into your every day wardrobe! All of the outfits below are from their gift box!

If you like statement jewellery the you will love the gift by Maxi Gossamer. The black Dare bangles are really chunky and I love the Talia ring. They are the perfect pieces to complete the outfits. You can see a closer look at the ring further down the post!

Being a certified shoe-a-holic, I am always thrilled when there are freebie shoes at events. The strappy Cancoon shoes for SLink Mid Feet by Essenz are gorgeous and will quite possibly become my new favourite shoes as they are so versatile. If nothing else be sure to grab these!

The nails in this picture are from a set by Ghee that can also be found at The Black Fashion Fair. Another great event that is happening at the moment is The Fantasy Gacha Carnival and you can find the Moonchild Nosering by Enfant Terrible in one of the many gachas there!

Another event that started recently is Totally Top Shelf. When you land at the teleport point you will find some great group gifts there by some very generous designers. The group is free to join and you can find this beautiful Linka Skin by Essences! The make up on the actual skin is a more subtle purple colour. I am wearing Mi Amor Deep Smoke Eye Make up layer by Pink Acid on the skin in this picture.

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Anarchy HuntMid August… does this count as the “dog days of summer?” Be that as it may, the middle of the month means another big turnover of hunts. There are five new hunts that just started today, as well as a bunch that are ending. I’ve separated out the hunts calling it a wrap so that you can make a final run at them. You’ll find them at the end of the list today.

If you’d like to get involved with this fabulous game of hunting, there is no better time. There is a plethora of hunts currently underway. If you need a bit of help to get started FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages to help you with that. Yup, all this hunt stuff is either free or very nearly so. I don’t know about you, but my wardrobe and home have never looked better.

Let’s do this! Just poke the hunt names to get more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

Who needs colour on the beach? Rocking the monochrome!

Ok, I’m back with another Do the Dot Hunt post. I have to say, one of the things I love about a good hunt, there is always a store with great shoes in the hunt, so it’s so easy to put together an outfit. Especially when the hunt has a theme. Like polka dots! Have I mentioned how much i love polka dots? LOL.

dottybeach4

For today’s post, I started with the very classy looking dress and hat set from Fi’s Creations. The lovely DO THE DOT Pencil-Dress & Hat set includes a fun floppy hat, and a form-fitting mesh dress, in standard sizes of course. Conveniently, the belt on the dress has a separate flower attachment, so you can choose to wear it, or not, I love options. The flower for the belt matches the flower on the hat, and has this great texture that makes them look like they are glittering as you move! To remind you, all gifts for the Do the Dot hunt are free, and you are looking for a white, with black dots, ball.

dottybeach2

My shoes are the hunt gift that you can find at B!ASTA. They are the [ B! ] :MOVING TO SALAMANCA: Dotted sandals (for Slink Mid). Don’t you just love the name? While they could have been any colour, and I would have been happy, I really like the monochromatic look I get when combined with this dress, especially when my surroundings are so bright and colourful. Ohhh, I almost forgot to mention, for those of you who do not have SLink feet, there is also a pair for system feet! Everybody wins with these :)

dottybeach3

That’s it for me for now, but I still have a few more hunt gifts I want to show you, so don’t worry. In the meantime, you can head over to the official hints and preview page for this hunt HERE. Until next time, TTFN!!!

Do-do-doin the Dot, woah, DeJaaVu!

So…I have said it a number of times, I’m sure, I love polka dots. Now, if I haven’t said it to you all, well, I sure thought it a lot, cause I do. You just have to ask my Mom, who dislikes polka dots…so I tease her about the cute things I find that are covered in polka dots! I’m so mean. Anywho….what is better than finding a cute freebie that has one of my favourite patterns all over it? Finding a hunt specifically for said pattern. That’s right, a hunt full of polka dots, called Do the Dot!! I plan to show you a few of the prizes over a couple posts, and while all the things I have gotten are really nice, I think the dress I am starting off with is one of my favourites.

reddot1

The offering from [ DeJaaVu ]  is the Samiya dress in Blue. It is a gorgeous mesh dress, in all the standard sizes, and I can’t say this enough, I love the colour combination of the material. The texture is really nicely done, with lovely little details such as seaming under the breasts and on the edges of the sleeves. Those little things sure make a dress feel complete. All items in the Do the Dot Hunt are free, so all you need to do is find the little black and white polka-dotted ball hidden somewhere in the [DeJaaVu ] store. The organizer’s of the hunt have kindly put up a page with hints and slurls, as well as preview pictures of the gifts. and because I am so nice, I will give you the address., HERE[DeJaaVu ] is store #42, so you will need to scroll down a bit. The hunt runs until Aug 31, so you have plenty of time. I had to take a closer picture of this dress for you all, I hope you can make out the details I mentioned.

OK lovelies, just the one piece for now, but I promise, I will show off a few more for you all really soon. It’s so hard to choose what I am going to post about :) Until next time, TTFN!!!

A Song Of Happiness Echoes

Hey everyone! Happy humpday! After showing you a couple of the sweet treats you can find on the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt yesterday, I thought I would show you a few more today as there are some great clothing finds if you adore cute and girly things like I do! The hunt is on until the end of August so you still have a couple of weeks left to sink your teeth into these great prizes. You are looking for a little cupcake with blue icing on the top and each prize costs L$5 to buy!

You can find the Ira Mesh Blouse Shine by [ZD] and the Buffy Skirt by Miseria on the hunt. I think they look so adorable together. I do tend to like clashing my pastel colours together like this, though it might not be to everyones taste! Both items are mesh and to wear them together I wore the XXS skirt with the Medium top which caused little to no overlap!

The Kawaii Jumper Dress by by Parfait is so ridiculously cute! Plus the slogan on the shirt really made me giggle! My hair is hiding some of it but it reads “Kawaii on the streets .. Senpai in the sheets!” .. Senpai is a Japanese term which is roughly the equivilent to the concept of a Mentor.. now you can see why it made me giggle!

The last item from the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt I want to show you today is the adorable Little Singaporian dress and jacket by Yulcie. This looks like two seperate pieces but it is all in one so there is no overlap to worry about. Hooray! The little ice cream print on the skirt of the dress is just so cute!

The cute Jinx hair is from the free pastels set by Truth. Calleja previously blogged about the hair here, but I thought it was just the most perfect hairstyle for these few looks I wanted to show you today, that I thought I would show it again! I love pastel hair colours and the colours in this set are just beautiful! Be sure to go and snag a copy for yourself!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Fairy Tale HuntGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, August 12.

There are lots of cool hunts going on. The Fairy Tale Hunt has jumped to the top of the list this week, with Dirty Diva holding the second spot, and the female path for Battle of the Sexes still making a strong showing. My partner and I have been planning on doing Kagami, but it’s rumored to be so popular that it’s hard to get in. I’m sure you can find a hunt that will give you hours of enjoyment.

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.

See you out on the hunt!

We Only Come Out at Night

We Only Come Out at Night

A little bit Pin-up a little bit Punk, I like that! So I recently got this notice that Rock Royalty is closing down and has moved all of their items to the Marketplace at a steep discount. Of course, I checked it out! I’m happy I did because I scored this freaky cute dress for $45 lindens. It’s a shame the store is closing down, but I can’t be sad about cute inexpensive clothing. Speaking of inexpensive, how does free sound? It sounds awesome to me too! To go with my spooky new dress I picked up these dangerously cool heels at Diamante along with these delicate facial piercings for absolutely nothing; I just had to wear my Second Life Frees & Offers tag! I hope you enjoy this punky-pin-up look as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
