Why Not?!


Why Not?

My tank top asks “why?” but I like to ask “why not?.” For example, why not indulge in this delicious looking frozen orange confection by Andika, or the cute casual tank top by The Bold Lama? I can’t think of a single reason, especially when you consider the frozen orange is a free group gift at Andika, and the top is a dollarbie hunt prize at The Bold Lama. Keep reading for details about both of these fab finds.

Andika

I’m such a foodie sometimes, and SL food is no exception. I think these frozen oranges by Andika are not only very pretty to look at, they seem like they’d be fun to eat. haha The orange on the plate acts as a dispenser for a held version and the matching animated spoon. This free group gift at Andika comes in 3 color variations. Right now the Andika group is free to join. Also, there is at least one other free group gift currently available.

The Bold Lama

It is not lost on me that the Curiosity Hunt prize at The Bold Lama asks the question “why?.” The Curiosity Hunt is a dollarbie hunt that runs from now until the end of the month. This 1 linden hunt prize at The Bold Lama comes in the following sizes: Ocasin, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), EBody, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer.

Hunt Hint: Books aren’t the only way to satisfy curiosity.

Pin Up?

Pin Up?

I have a couple of my favorite things today. Comfortable, well-broken in jeans, a casual tee shirt and a cold ‘adult beverage.’  The best thing is I didn’t have to work too hard for two of them. Just 1 linden for the jeans and some hunt time for the tee.

Around the Grid

Around the Grid in Eighty Days is one of the bigger well known hunts in Second Life and the seventh annual hunt is in full swing until September 30th. That’s a good long time to hunt down some top notch prizes. Happily, there are a lot of good men’s items on the hunt along side the women’s fare. Like these perfect destressed jeans from ZFG. Just look for the red and yellow hot air balloon and a toss in one linden and they’re yours.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

I’m NOT sure I like the idea of Dumpster diving….

But… I really like this tee. This is the ‘Pin Up’ tee from The Sissy Bar and it’s the free prize for the Dumpster Diving Hunt. Luckily, I didn’t have to crawl in a dumpster to grab this great tee shirt. While you’re at The Sissy Bar looking for the tiny trash can… be sure to check out all the Hunts running and the past hunts shelves. TSB always has a solid selection of men’s items in their hunts. Something VERY much appreciated.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

A Rose in the Garden

A Rose in the Garden

After all the excitement of getting wayyyy lost and finding my way back home… I thought maybe I should stay in the back garden for a while. So I’m getting comfy and entertaining the cat this afternoon. And what’s more comfy than a soft baby tee and shorts and an old pair of sneakers?

Sweetest Rose in the garden

I was tickled to see one of my favorite stores listed in the designers for the “Around the Grid in Eighty Days” Hunt.  And, as always, The Sissy Bar has served up the perfect hunt prize. This is the simply titles “ATG Hunt Tee and Shorts” and the set can be yours for a mere 1L when you hunt down the balloon it’s hidden in.

Good morning Fabulouses!  Today in my blog post, I am featuring a couple of 1L Marketplace finds that make for perfect summer staples!  We still have August left, don’t be pulling out your fall boots yet!

Not so basic, basic

Every girl needs a basic cropped black tank top in their inventory!  It goes with so many things, and you can’t go wrong for 1L in the TUSSAY marketplace store ;).  It’s well made with no cutting on my avatar with movement, so that’s a bonus!

Open Denim Shorts

I bet you can’t believe these open denim shorts are just 1L, but they are!  These are the Angel Pink Vida Jean Shorts and you can find them priced at 1L in their Marketplace store. I have added a string bikini bottom under the shorts, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to – I just wanted to show that you can easily add it if you want!

With Powdered Sugar On Top

Forget Me Not

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is off to a fantastic start!  The pupster and I have another hunt gift to share with you today, and I think you are really going to love this one!  It’s perfect for a late summer trip to the shore, and best of all, it costs just 1 little Linden dollar!

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Powdered sugar, that is!  Over at the C!L Boutique, Ripley and I discovered the Powdered Sugar Beach Bikini and Dress set as a prize in the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  This combo features the most adorable ruffled cover up in a bright, cooling hue complete with thin shoulder straps and mesh sections to keep you comfortable even on steamy summer days.  In addition to the frock, the prize also includes a darling snow white bikini (see the picture below).  Although I didn’t wear them for my photos, a pair of cycling shorts rounds out the package.  One thing I truly appreciate about the Powdered Sugar prize is that it includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars.  If you like this outfit as much as I do, you only have a short time left to hit the hunt trail.  The Lazy Summer Day Hunt wraps up on July 31st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes system layers as well as an alpha layer for the dress)
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Ebody
    • Maitreya
    • Ocacin
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique
    • TMP
    • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Enjoy the moment

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Beat the Heat


Beat the Heat

The Beached Bunny Hunt ends in just a few days. With that in mind I suggest heading over to Sevyn East and finding their little blue sand bucket before it’s gone. The BBH prize at Sevyn East is the perfect beachy set to beat the summer heat. The BBH prizes are just 1 linden, and this one includes the ruffled bikini I’m wearing and the transparent pink tote bag. The swimsuit has a color/texture change hud with 3 tropical print options for the ruffles, and 3 solid colors. The hold pose shown is included as part of the cute pink tote.

  • Bikini Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

What I’m Wearing:

  • Hair – [DUE] Michelle
    Head – Catwa Koura
    Skin – The Skinnery – Bria
    Sunglasses – [Fetch] Miranda Sunglasses
    Swimsuit & Tote – Sevyn East – Erica Set – 1L BBH Prize
    Tattoos – Ivory & Rose – Downhearted

A Little Fun in the Sun

A Little Fun in the Sun

Can you believe this year is half way over? July is very nearly in the books. But you still have five days left to get all the July Hunts done. And you don’t want to miss out on all that loot, Right? Right!

Beach Sweet

The Beached Bunny Hunt is certainly one of those Hunts that you don’t want to lose out on. Not with such nifty things like this great one-piece. This is the “Xavia” suit from Prism. Of course, I picked to show it in this awesome purple print but you can choose any of the other five just-as-cool colors on the HUD. I love that this is a one piece suit. Not that I have anything against bikinis… but it’s really nice to see something cute and sexy but more on the modest side. Thanks, Jezzixa Cazalet!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

A Tropical Treat

Lighthouse

Hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy Monday!  This morning, the pupster and I enjoyed a walk on the beach on the Miss C sim before diving in to our work week.  I can’t imagine a better way to start the day than a stroll across damp sand while waves roll in and the cries of seagulls fill the air.

Just a Dollar…

Today, I’m wearing another of our recent hunt discoveries, and I picked it up for just one Linden dollar.  This time, we were exploring the trail of the Around the Grid Hunt, and when Ripley led me to the hot air balloon hunt object, I happily paid the fee and scooped up my prize.  The Tia Tropical Knotted Tank from Sparrow by Design features narrow shoulder straps and a fun parrot/jungle flora print.  The generous designer also included a texture change HUD, which allows you to select from three overall hues.  I opted for the pale purple, but you could also select a brown or a green color scheme.  The neckline of the top dips quite low, so you might want to consider a longer hairstyle for extra coverage.  The texture of the knot and the folds in the fabric are really well done.   This top is a real cutie!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (no alpha layer included)
  • Two versions for Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Bring on Those Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days of Summer

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued our journey along a hunt path on the grid.  This time, inspired by Love’s, Juli’s and Pru’s recent posts, we checked out the Beached Bunny Hunt and headed over to Dragonmoon Designs.  There, we discovered an outfit perfect for the hot, lazy afternoons, and it cost just one little Linden dollar.

I Long for Those Sunny Days!

The Sunny Daze outfit features a buttoned tank top that reaches to about belly button level and coordinating shorts which have the cutest little ties dangling down.  In addition to versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, the folder includes a texture change HUD with four color options each for the shorts and top.  You can opt to color both the same as I have done or use different hues for more variety.  The tank and shorts are worn separately so you can mix and match with items from your wardrobe as well.  I really like the detailed buttons and the realistic wrinkles in the fabric where it is gathered in the shorts on the sides.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you need to do is locate the beach pail hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the 1 Linden prize fee.  It’s well worth the effort!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Free Flowing Locks

I picked up my new hairstyle for free as a Midnight Mania prize over at Olive Hair.  The Therra hairstyle prize is a full fatpack of colors (including streaked and non streaked varieties) and features a center part and thick luxurious hair pulled forward over your shoulders.  The Midnight Mania prizes over at Olive rotate through, so although the Therra style is not on display for today’s prize, there is another lovely long style for you to try your luck on.  If you check back another day, Therra may once again be featured soon.  There is no group required, and every day I’ve gone back, the target has been met, so it’s an easy way to add some new free styles to your collection!

Until my next post, happy hunting!
