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).

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.

The Lavender Hill Hunt

Lavender Hill Hunt Ad
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.

Official Monochrome Hunts Blog – http://monochromehunts.wordpress.com/

Here are some of my favourites :)

Below you will see me lounging in the plush Marguerite Armchair in Moonlit Lavender that can be found at Senzafine.   It has 10 single animations and has a LI of 15.  The eclectic wall art collection behind me is the gift you will find at *Ionic* and has a land impact of 8.  My stunning lavender mesh maxi dress (*SQUEALS*) is the hunt prize at Intrepid.

A Cold Winter Tuesday

Snapshot_001I’m up bright and early this morning, enjoying the fresh falling snowflakes that twinkle in the sun…  I was in a rush to try out my new coat!

Senzafine has their very fashionable mesh Audra Winter Coat in the Prussian colour/print inside their hidden snowflake hunt icon for the Cold Winter Nights Hunt.  It will cost you 10L to snag this hunt gift, but will be worth all the lindens you can count on two hands! I am not wearing a shirt or a belt – this is a one piece jacket and as you can see is just beautiful!  You could dress this up or down – a very versatile piece.

Another really nice Cold Winter Nights Hunt prize is the Milla Has A Cold Skin at Oceane.  It features lined eyes, frosted mocha lips, a light freckling and a rosy red nose.  To see more information on the Cold Winter Nights Hunt – see THIS POST.
Snapshot_002

In my previous CWNH post, I mentioned the Virtual Impressions Samantha Jewelry Set that is set out as a free gift, and I couldn’t get the necklace on without it interfering with my top, but here it is – looking lovely on a lower neckline.

xox  Have a great Tuesday!

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.

The Case of Praying Mary – Part 1

mary2_Final3

“Why can’t I get her voice out of my head…her stories…I’m losing my mind”

It’s Praying Mary, her ghost haunts me ever since I learned about her while on the latest hunt from Madpea. I started at Hoshi Island and bought the HUD for a small fee of 10L and began my investigation. I followed in her footsteps and found where she murdered countless men and always left her signature weapon behind, a cross. I was terrified, but in the end I had found them all and discovered her dark secret leading to great rewards! Remember you must be brave and survive to the end if you want to earn any of these prizes. The hunt runs until November 4th.

Above you will see me sitting in the comfortable “Gloomy Sunday” accent chair from Senzafine which includes 5 poses. Next to me is the charming Blue Charlotte Cabinet from LISP which includes the books and two candles. The Praying Mary dagger in my hand is from <Southpaw> and works with Spellfire and DCS systems.

“I must fight it…must escape this house…must resist…must kill…NO!”

From +sanctuaire+ is the “Along Comes Mary House” and is made with partial mesh. This cozy abandoned home features working windows and doors, mesh radiators, and faded wallpaper with shadows of old hangings. It is 129 prims and also has a secret hiding space with a surprise inside for those who find it.

mary3_Final

“I’m a murderer…I must kill! Carry out Mary’s killing spree from beyond the grave!”

Oh my did I do that? From Michigan’s Shack comes Praying Mary’s Bed complete with the dead corpse. It has 3 animations inside that play when you lay down on the bed. My bloody outfit is from 22769 and includes the mesh blood drained slip on top and mesh pants with blood stains. The Bloody Mary Fortune Mirror behind the bed comes from Impish and on command Mary will appear from a bloody haze and read your fortune.

mary4_Final

“I bear her cross and use the blade to carve her name for me on my chest, Misfit”
To be continued in Part 2…

You can find the stunning Praying Mary’s Cross necklace from Chaos, Panic, and Disorder and on touch you can choose to reveal a hidden blade that slides out of the cross. The Misfit Carved Tattoo on my chest is from {:ThirteenTH:} and comes on three different layers.

Furnishings Friday #11 – I’ve Got The Swimming Pool Blues

FF1 This week for Furnishing’s Friday I have decided to feature some of the structures, furniture and home decorating items you can find in The Swimming Pool Blues Hunt.  This hunt runs until August 31st, and everything in the hunt is blue themed and just 5L.  The hunt icon you are searching for is the blue cube shown below.  You can find more information on this hunt and a complete list with slurls, hints and photo previews at the following link – http://monochromehunts.wordpress.com/2012/08/15/hunt-gifts-preview-and-hints/

At L&K Prefabs you will find Ma Petite Maison (bleu) which is the little blue house shown above.  This little unfurnished home is 62 prims and has a little loft with a ladder inside.

huntobject
Below you will see displayed, the UrbanizeD Wall Arty in Monochrome Blue Limited Edition and the Senzafine Sideboard (16 prims).

FF5Below the loft, I have set up the Comfy Sofa (12 prims) from .MM. that has several poses and seats up to two people with the Blue, Oh So Blue 6 pose animated mesh chair from Kusshon (1 prim), and the Oceanic End Table (includes mesh) from Baffle!
FF2

In the upper loft, you can see The Summertime Blues Chairs (regular sized and petite, 14 prims each) from Prism that include several cute sitting poses.
FF3

On the back wall I have displayed SFW Industries Photo Frame Grouping that includes all the pictures you see and is just 1 prim.
FF6

In the last photo here you can see the mesh Vibrant Blue Sitting Nook that includes the animated chair, table and lamp from Little House of Curios.  You can also see my dress well in this photo.  It is part of the hunt too!  This blue mesh dress is made by Leri Miles Designs.  You might be squinting your eyes to see the very tiny person outside the window lol…  This chick used to own this land…  (note, I’ve been here a year) and just never moved out!  I banned her a few months ago lol because she doesn’t speak – just stands there lol, and now she rezzes in right outside my land.  OI!  lolol  I suppose I’ll never be lonely.

FF4

NOTE – If you’d like to see any of these photos larger, just click on them and they’ll take you to my flickr.
