An Easter Portrait in Watercolour

Happy Saturday, and it’s a long weekend to boot! I can’t believe it’s already the Easter weekend. You know what Easter means, right? All sorts of hunts here in SL! I discovered a really easy, and fairly large, Easter egg hunt, after receiving a notice from one of the participating stores. The German Land Holding Estate is hosting a Spring Fair, with lots of participating vendors, and to coincide with the Spring Fair, there is also an Easter egg hunt happening in and around the stalls. There are 103 eggs to find, each with a gift from the different stores. All you need to do is grab your free egg basket, put it on, and then wander around the stalls, clicking on free Easter eggs. You do have to be within 10M of an egg to pick it up, so no camming, and once you have picked up an egg, you will not be able to pick it up again. I managed to find 97 out of the 103…and let me tell you, there is some good stuff in these eggs!

The first gift I’m showing off is the absolutely gorgeous dress from Sweet E’s. This is the Water Colour Kate gown, and I really can’t express how much I am in love with this. The colours, the watercolour-like flower print, the rouching on the corset! It has to be one of the prettiest dresses I’ve put on in SL, and really wish I had one in RL. LOL. It is mesh, and comes in 4 sizes ; one for Maitreya, one each for SLink and SLink Hourglass, and a single fitmesh that will fit standard sizes from XXS up to a M. I did try it with a L shape, and it did not work out well.

My colour coordinated bracelets are the gift you will get with you find the Luminesse egg. This gift is actually for both men and women, as the gold and magenta bracelet on my right wrist is the women’s gift, and the silver and blue band on my left arm is the men’s gift. The men’s bracelet will not shrink down enough for my M sized wrist, but I think it does make a lovely armband. I don’t normally mix metals with individual jewelry pieces, but I really did have to show you all how perfectly both worked with my dress. Like it was meant to be. You get both left and right versions of each bracelet, and they are scripted for size changing if needed.

The GLH Springfair Easter Egg hunt runs until the end of April, so you have plenty of time to go grab all the goodies. I already have plans of showing you a few more gifts in upcoming posts, so keep your eyes opened for them.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter/long weekend, and I will see you all again real soon. Until then, TTFN *waves*

Spring Spell

Heyya FabFree-ers and happy weekend!

Spring Spell

The weekend is a great time to get your Hunt on here in Second Life. I checked out the Iconic Spell Hunt today and picked up this super cute little skirt from Luas. This is the “Spring Skirt” and it will only cost you some hunting time and 15L. The skirt comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-L and has a good alpha layer. I really love the lace detail at the hem of the skirt!

Loki, …I mean Astrid showed us some of the great men’s wear available on the Spell Hunt so it was time for us girls.

The Spell Hunt runs until April 3rd so you’ve got some time to explore this lovely Sim and find some great prizes!

Rock — Ability

Astrid took her turn with the Cart Sale this morning, so I thought I would check out what was available for men… and I stuck gold… or actually I struck ropes and rock. You see I have to give props to a couple of things. First, the Roped Passion’s Cart put out some amazing men’s shirts for only 10L each (2 of which I plan to show you). And second, I found an amazing music venue that showcased this rockabilly look like nobody’s business.

Rockability 1

Quality men’s wear at great prices is easy to find on the grid if you take a look around and Roped Passion’s made the Rockabilly look available to men on their 10L list this Cart Sale with four pretty amazing shirts. The brown plaid shirt above looks great with a pair of worn out jeans, and has that sort of cowbilly look that is great on a country stage. But don’t let that deter you if it’s not your style. The other shirts are Gothic and traditional rockabilly and go for the same low price.

Rockability 2

I also nabbed the black and white Skully shirt that has a great Gothic feel. Again, it was only 10L. Both these shirts are mesh in all the standard sizes. There are two other shirts there for men that are well worth looking at and picking up.

If you want a great music venue to check out or to take out that special gal out on a date to… I’d recommend checking out Shay’s Rock House. As in the name, it is a club built into a series of caves with lots of pretty outstanding views and places to explore. And before you go, Ladies… stop by the Roped Passion’s Cart as well. There’s lots of Rockabilly stuff there for you too.

Easter Sundae

Easter Sundae

It’s the start of Easter Weekend, and there are lots of fun spring-time goodies to be had around the grid. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, you’ve got No Eggscuses to not pick up this cute little dress. It’s the No Eggscuses Hunt prize at Serendipity. Aside from being a completely adorable mesh dress, the gift is just one linden if you hunt for it, or you can simply buy the dress for 25 lindens and skip the hunting part! Either way, this strapless dress from Serendipity an adorable springtime dress at an awesome price. You’ll also find a men’s prize as part of the No Eggscuses Hunt at Serendipity, so the guys can participate in this one too!

To go with the dress, I wanted some jewelry that was equally cute without being overdone. Izzie’s Easter bunny jewelry set was the perfect thing! I love these dainty pearls with the simple bunny ears, they are classic and cute as can be! You’ll find this earring and matching ring set on the Marketplace for FREE. The gift from Izzie’s includes the set in gold, copper, and silver. Easter or not, these are too pretty to not have them in your jewelry box. You can check out the vendor photo below for a closer look!
Izzie's - Bunny Pearl JewelryI have to tell you I’ve been eyeing this double bun hairstyle by Olive for weeks now. It’s their Arcade gacha item, and at 75 lindens per play I’m really glad I gave in and played the machine. This mesh hairstyle has tons of color hud options to be had, and a rare “glittler roots” version. Again, the style is 75 lindens per play, and since it’s a gacha the hair is transferable so you can swap with others for the color you want!

Last but never least, shoes! I won’t wax poetic about my love for shoes, this time, even though these chunky pumps from HOC Industries are worth the effort. These heels come in a Maitreya fit, Slink Fit, and include a hud that allows you to change between quite a few colors. Another fun addition, the ankle straps can be hidden to change up the style a little! These pretty pumps are just 1o lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy, and Happy Hunting!

Horse Power

Sometimes… you just need something different.

I love when different also turns out to be classy…

Horse Power

I made a stop by the Spring Freshness Cart Wash Sale Event this morning and came away with some not to be missed items from three different carts. Mix and match is always my thing of course… I love when beautiful pieces come together in style.

One of the carts I came across that really caught my eye was the BiZarre Hair Cart, where I picked up this rather amazing hair and jewelry set for only 50L called “Horse Power”. You get the hair in all its regal appearance, the earrings, the necklace, and a bracelet (bracelet not shown). It also comes in 12 textures with 12 hairbases all in the same box for the same single low price. I love the details and that despite the fact that this hair is really ‘out there’ as far as style… it is still incredibly classy. Though one could use it for contests… you could honestly don it for a formal ballroom setting just as easily and no one would blink an eye. It is high style couture.

I found the perfect dress to wear with my new hair at the Artic Storm Cart. I picked up the Jackie Oh Brown Stripe dress for only 50L and was really thrilled with the style and fit. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and does include a hat. I had to leave the hat off due to my exotic hair 😉  But there is one in the box, I promise you!

I also wanted to show off some of the amazing textures you can pick up from the Timeless Textures Cart right now for just 10L per pack. This is a great chance for builders or photographers or anyone who just likes great textures to stock up. I’m showing off three of the beautiful styles available in this picture. The beautiful wood grain is from the 12 Seamless Polished Wood Stained Pack. The green textures are from the 12 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Green Pack. And the red textures are from the 10 Seamless Fantasy Marble Mix in Rose Pack. There are quite a few more texture packs set out… all for just 10L each!  Go go go and check them out!
