Hope

Hope is the Thing With Feathers

Hello Fabulouses!  With a smattering of days left in January, Ripley and I decided to dust off his tracking harness, and try our luck at rounding up a few hunt prizes to share with you.   After reading about the Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 in Edi’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}, we opted to put the pupster’s nose to the test over at Firelight Creations first.

What’s at the Center of that Lollipop?

The Cute and Curvy Hunt 2 icon, a lollipop, was indeed cleverly hidden in the Firelight Creations store.  It took some dedication, circling around and around the shop, and searching high and low. I had almost given up in frustration, when Rip gave a sudden tug to the leash, yanked it out of my hand, and bolted off. A mad scramble followed with me trying to keep pace with his flying paws.  I caught up with him as he sat and stared intently at the prize location.  After purchasing the hunt gift for just one little Linden dollar, we teleported home to examine our bounty.  Tucked inside the package, I happily discovered the Nixie Denim Set, a versatile collection of jeans in various lengths from shorts to the full pant style I chose to wear for our photo.  The dark denim jeans are perfect for a casual hike through the woods as Ripley and I chose to do, or they can be glammed up… it all depends on how you accessorize them.  I really liked the realistic denim hue, and the details of the stitching and rivets.  If you’d like to claim this wonderful collection of jeans for yourself, head on over to Firelight Creations before the hunt ends on January 31st.

What’s Included

  • three lengths of jeans, each in distressed and traditional denim textures
  • pants for classic avatars
  • appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

Here’s the vendor picture so you can see all the trousers that are included in this prize pack:

Perfect Plaid Poncho

With the chilly winter temperatures, I wanted a warm and cozy top to wear as Rip and I explored the picturesque Winter Trace sim, and the Outlet Marketplace Hunt prize from AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS was ideal.  Thick and comfortable, with a cheery pink, red,  and burgandy plaid pattern, this poncho wrapped me in stylish comfort.  It buttons on the side of the neck and is long enough to ensure my tummy is shielded from any winter breezes traipsing around.  From the hunt prize picture, it looks like the texture of the poncho can be modified, but since I love red, I opted to keep it in its original form.  Also included in the prize package is a long sleeve dress, but I chose to don only the cape.  One nice thing about this hunt is Ripley and I didn’t have to circle around, hunting through a physical store.  All we had to do was peruse the AmAzInG CrEaTiOnS Marketplace shop.  It didn’t take long at all to locate the hunt gift, add it to my cart, and check out for a grand total of 10L well-spent.  If you’d like to scoop up this poncho for yourself, don’t delay, as the Outlet Marketplace Hunt ends January 30th.

Hope is a Thing With Feathers

As Rip and I strolled along, exploring Winter Trace, this darling little feathered friend alighted on my outstretched hand.  Its cheerful presence made me think of the Emily Dickinson poem “Hope is a Thing With Feathers.”  I paused, listened to his cheerful song, then snapped this photo before the little guy fluttered on his way.  Our hearts lighter after our avian encounter, Rip and I headed home.  My wish for you, my friends, is that hope fills your hearts today.  Until my next post, happy shopping!  Just for fun, here is a link to the famous poem set to music and beautifully sung.

Tres Joli in Rose

Feeling Tres Joli

What a week, eh? Words cannot express how glad I am that today is Friday. This morning I was determined to shake it off Taylor Swift style, so I got myself dressed up to take my dog out for a walk and grab some hot coffee. Unfortunately, my silly pup would rather take a nap than go out and chase squirrels. Looks like she’s had a rough week, too! 😉

I Feel Joli

My college French is a bit rusty, but at least I know that I’m feeling “very pretty” in this Très Joli dress from The White Armory. As many of you know, The White Armory is one of the go-to stores for Medieval, fantasy, and role-play clothing. And you may also know that if you join their free in-world group, you can pick up a new gift every, single Sunday. But what you may not know is that every now and then, the free gift is not a Medieval gown, but instead is something more… 21st century.

Such is the case with this week’s group gift. The Très Joli Dress in Rose is a curve-hugging, cowl-neck that is as warm and snuggly as it is sexy. It comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. As I mentioned, The White Armory changes group gifts every Sunday, so if you want this dress, be sure to pick it up by Saturday night!

A French Manicure

After adding these gorgeous boots by #EMPIRE (which were in the January Luxe Box), I noticed that I was in serious need of a pedicure, so I headed over to Entice to pick up their newest Fab Free group gift. The Listen to Her Heart applier includes a pretty French manicure with 6 delicate designs. The HUD works for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh hands and feet, and I was so happy to see that an Omega applier was also included so I could wear the manicure with my Vista PROHANDS.

As with all Omega items, you will need an Omega System Kit in order to wear them. You can pick up the kit for Vista PROHANDS on the Marketplace or in the Vista Animations store.

Never Runaway From A Good Lovesong

Snapshot_001Good morning Fabulous Readers! Today I bring you two marvelous bits of news I hope you’ll be happy to hear about.

The First Bit – Who Doesn’t Love A Good Lovesong?

Lamb inworld group members are being spoiled with a new group gift.  With your inworld group tag activated above your head, you can head to the mainstore and pick up the new Lovesong hairstyle for free and in a complete fatpack of colours!  Lovesong is a long, flowy style, bobby pinned at the side to keep the hair out of your eyes.  There is also a previously given out group gift still on the shelf as well [Blogged Here].  This group is 100L to join, but with two fatpacks of really great hair available, it’s a steal!

The Second Bit – Sn@tch News

Sn@tch has some big changes going on at their shop this month as they are moving to a new building.  They will be retiring some of the older items and are hosting a huge clearance sale until the end of the month.  If you have a peek around the store, you’ll find all kinds of discounts, some ridiculously low!  There are three new Riot Vendor items too, and my sexy Runaway Plaid Lingerie as shown in my photo is one of them.

If you are unfamiliar with how a Riot Vender works, basically the more people standing around the vendor, the lower the price goes!  So TP in your friends, call the Sn@tch group members down and watch the numbers drop – sometimes below 50L even!

The Runaway Plaid Lingerie comes in a fatpack of eight colours and is compatible with the system body and includes Omega Appliers.
