Your Friday Hunt Report

SL12BIG HUNT 300The SL12B Community Celebration is going on right now. This is Second Life’s 12th birthday party and if you haven’t visited yet, you’ll definitely want to put it on your agenda. With the celebration also comes a couple of hunts.

The SL12BIG HUNT takes place all over the sims of the fair, with over 90 exhibitors participating. Yes, it’s THAT BIG! There are all kinds of free goodies to be picked up.

The SL12B Nano Hunt is a little hunt which is taking place right in the HUNT SL building at the celebration. There are 12 free prizes (one for each year). You just have to climb up and look for them.

There is of course, all kinds of other hunt goodness going on as well. Check out the list below to find some pretty keen hunts.

Still unclear on the whole hunting thing? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get in on the action. Pay them a visit and you’ll be good to go!

Day or night…anytime is a good time to be a star!

My favourite part of being in SL is that I can pretend to be anyone that I want, or anything, at anytime. All I need to do is dress the part and poof..I become anything my little heart desires :) . The other day…I wanted to feel like I was a 50’s starlet, with all the glitz and glam that I could ever ask for. Of course, I needed the right look, and that is where Cog & Fleur provided me with not just 1, but 2 looks that just scream 50’s movie star to me.

cog&fleur1

I’ll start with my daytime look. What movie star could pass up a day at the beach? I sure couldn’t, especially once I saw that the current free group gift from Cog & Fleur was a goodie pack of summer accessories in a fun cherry print, all I needed to do was join their free group. The gift includes my fabulous floppy hat, a tote bag with 3 holding positions, and the sweet bow and cherry earrings, I’ve included a close-up picture so you can see each item better. Now, all you really need to do is throw on a cute bathing suit and you are set. Or, if you love cherries as much as I do, feel free to take advantage of the special group discount for the matching cherry bathing suit, SLink med-foot shoes and sunglasses set. If you have your group tag on, you can buy it for 50% off of its normal price, which is a great deal!

cog&fleur2

After a day in the sun, nothing beats getting all dolled up and attending some fancy movie shindig. This time, I was covered from Cog & Fleur‘s 2 Midnight Mania boards. My mesh Satin Doll dress in Opal is on the group only board, and only takes 40 slaps to lock. It comes in the standard sizes in both regular mesh, and fitmesh. My lovely matching Vintage Deco Necklace and Earrings, also in Opal, are on the open to everyone board, and will also lock at only 40 slaps. I just love this dress and jewelry, my pictures really do not do them justice.  You will need your tag on for the dress board, and again, the group is free to join. Oh, and I should mention, in case you are worried about having to use a group space…there is a box of past group gifts available for all group members, for free. I have still not finished going through all that is in that box. It is well worth the group space, that is for sure.

cog&fleur3

Lastly, and I am sure some of you readers who have been around for a while may have noticed, I’m a red-head in this post! When I tried on the Alina group gift skin from [PUMEC], there was no choice. This lovely freckled skin with it’s perfectly groomed ginger brows would just not look the same with any other hair colour. How perfect is the eye makeup for my retro glam look? This skin actually comes with very pretty natural lips, which you can see in my beach picture, however, I needed to stick with my 50’s evening feel and added a layer of red lipstick. Alina comes with a multitude of appliers, so everyone with meshy bits should be happy. The [PUMEC] group is only L$99 to join, and there is at least one other gift out for you to grab, if not more. This is a pretty generous group :) .

*sighs* What a lovely day I had. Not everyone can say they just decided to become a 50’s movie star and actually do it. This is why I love SL! Now I am off to find more lovely things to show you, and maybe become someone else entirely. Until next Thursday, TTFN.

Those Hot Summer Nights

summer2

Happy Monday, and happy summer!  To celebrate the new season,  I hauled myself on over to the Flawless Hot Summer Nights cart sale/hunt to pick up some truly awesome freebies and sale items.  There are dozens of carts on the sim, each with great deals all under $100L, a free gift (hunt for the ice pop!)   I picked up a few things while I was there… okay, a lot of things! This cute cross front top from Saris Creations was one of my favorite finds.  It has a sweet, flowing feel and a great texture.  It pairs perfectly with the Pale Green Necklace from the Beloved Jewelry cart and the Life Nail Polish from Posh Pixels.

It may be summer now, but these eggstrodinarily cute shoes from the MM boards at Bitch Heels are still among my favorites to wear.  Created for SLink high feet, but they are unrigged, so they have the potential to work with other foot styles. The boards do rotate through a few different shoes, but they all are amazing and worth a slap.  The pedicure is courtesy of the same Posh Pixel hud.  It includes 8 cheerful and sometimes psychedelic polishes for Slink hands and feet.  Each polish set is so bright and cheerful.

Here’s to a wonderful Monday, and an even better summer!

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue’s Magic

When we were children magic was very much alive. It surrounded us like light and water in a surreal and ethereal dream of shimmer and color.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [1]

The Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and monsters were not just imaginary things. Trolls hid in our closets and under our beds. We played jump across the room, slap the light switch from a distance, and huddle under the covers. I used to imagine that within me was a power I could harness to ‘zap’ away the things that went bump in the night and obliterate them into oblivion. In my mind, I was not a wee child. I was a leviathan of strength — strong, mighty, powerful, and beautiful.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [2]

Somewhere along the lines, we grow up. And when you’re a teenager the monsters are supposed to disappear. You know they aren’t in your closet anymore… it’s then you realize they are outside your door. They are, instead, real people with faces. Names. Families of their own. My dreams changed then — as did my outlook. The Tooth Fairy’s wings were crushed into dust… and Santa Claus faded into obscurity as the Grinch stole my Christmas.

A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue's Magic [3]

It was when I was an adult that I finally understood that not only were the monsters real, but that I did have magic within me that was very real as well. It was not fairy dust or hocus pocus of course. But it was magic nonetheless. It was then that I found harmony within myself.

There is that quote. Something about being afraid of the unknown? It’s when you know that the monsters are real that it becomes okay to sleep with the light off… because you know hold the light to banish them away within the palm of your upturned hand.

Timeless Classics

Timeless Classics

Timeless classic, the little black dress!

MoDANNA has a new FREE GG that has answered our need for the little black dress.

Just a tiny warning I did find myself having to use the M vs my usual S in this sharp little curve hugging mesh number. The cleavage on this dress is most likely a bit much for most of you ladies so any system layer tank, top or even bra finishes this look off nicely.

I myself used Happy Undead-Tank top (pack 1) I found on mp to finish off my look. You get 11 colors on system layers (shirt, undershirt, jacket), Lolas, Slink, Maitreya and Omega appliers all for the very reason price of 25L. I saw this as a great investment as these will come in handy under lots of mesh clothes or just worn by themselves. Along with a little black dress ever girl needs a good basic tank and this fits that bill to a T.

I went with all good basics you can use over an over today, last is this stylish tote bag thats a FREE GG at ::K:: It actually comes with 3 bags plus each have a HUD. You can get a good look here with the creators pic I am including.

::K:: New Group Gift ☻

P.S One last basic is my FREE Izzie’s Stand Still Pose Hud. Striking a pose never goes out of style!

WAIT!

I almost forgot the most timeless classic of all, Dads!

Father’s Day is this Sunday.

Of course you need a dress to wear to Sunday brunch with Dad.

Run over and grab  Kaithleen’s FREE GG and it may even give Dad a chuckle.

I’m Dad’s Favorite

I'm Dad's Favorite

Happy Father’s Day to all the SL Dad’s out there!

When we walked in fields of gold

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree Folks! Friday’s festivities for me today started at the fair… the Kustom9 fair to be factual. It was a first for me and I was not frustrated or foiled! In fact, I was fired up with all the financially frugal fantastic finds!

zenith_Blog

whew… okay, that’s out of my system…  Zenith, a designer I am always excited to see at an event, has a gorgeous summery gacha set at Kustom9 this round. This is the ‘Blue Flowers’ summer dress, one of the commons in the gacha.  I love the soft feminine sundress, it has an almost gauzy look to it, perfect for those hot summer days. The cute hair band is another common and it comes in packs of four so you don’t end up playing onesy twosy trying to pull one color out of twenty.

zenith_004

I don’t normally add handbags to my outfits but this one is just too cute to leave out. This is the ‘straw handbag-milk’ also in the Zenith gacha. Each bag comes with a different colored scarf tied to the handle and a hold animation.  Rounding out my accessories are my new white sandals from Lindy’s Modern and Retro Shoes. These are the ‘Chelsea’  sandals for system feet and they are part of the 0L  ‘Advanced or Casual Hunt’ from Fi’s Hunts.. This is Lindy’s ‘casual’ prize.

Kustom9 runs until July 10th and the Advanced or Casual Hunt runs until June 30th

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!
