Decorating for “Dummies”

Hey fabbies! I hope you’re having a wonderful easter, if you celebrate it, and if not, I hope you’re having a lovely day! I spent my day with some extended family (the close family gets together next weekend!), and the last few days preparing, and when I logged in today I noticed that Frogstar had ALL new things in their lucky chairs and a whole bunch of brand new dollarbies!

Snapshot_359

I snagged as many dollarbies and lucky chair prizes as I possibly could, and put them, along with the new dress forms (hence, dummies!) that are group gifts from Remarkable Oblivion, into my cute little “creator’s studio”

Snapshot_356

While I was out and about, I decided to check out apricot paws and Furry fashions‘ freebies, as well as stalk the luckies at Sn@tch, and boy did I make out like a bandit! I managed to put together an outfit for just $L1 (not including my collar, and such!)!

Snapshot_358

My adorable monster tee is a freebie from Apricot paws, one of many, actually! The arm warmers I have on won’t cost you a thing but time. You’ll need to camp in a chair for 45 minutes to grab these, but they are texture change and come in a TON of colours, so I think they’re really a steal!

Snapshot_357

The Bailey legwarmers I’m wearing will cost you a whopping $L1, and are a bunny hunt gift from Furry fashion. These are rigged mesh, come in multiple sizes, and include a whole ton of colours including rainbow! While you’re there, there are 29 other bunnies scattered all over the store for you to find! Each bunny costs $L1, and contains a fabulous prize! Some prizes are older items from the store, one is a set of scripts, and quite a few are brand-spanking-new releases!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Lost MineHello Fabulistas! It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time to bring you up to date on all the notable hunts out there on the Second Life grid. More Easter themed hunts have bloomed in the last week and all those Easter eggs are lying around out there, just waiting for you to pick up. It proves to be another great week for hunting!

Hunts are a fabulous way to pick up a lot of free (or nearly free) goodies. Store owners hide them for you to find. All you need to do is follow the hints and go find them! FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks. Or… find an experienced friend to show you the ropes. A lot of hunts also have groups to join so you can ask for a little extra help if you get stuck on a clue.

So here are the hunts. Just poke the names for more information on each one.

See you out on the hunt!

You’re the apple of my eye!

So, the apple of my eye hunt has begun! This is a little super quick and fun hunt that’s got a little something for everyone. There are only 13 stops on this hunt, and I was able to tackle it in about half an hour, so if you’ve got precious little spare time, this hunt is perfect for you! As usual, I’m only showing off a few of the gifts from this hunt, because where would be the fun in hunting if you knew everything you were getting ahead of time?

You're the apple of my eye_001

 

My top and capris are from stop #1 in the hunt, Zanzo. Both pieces are rigged mesh, and come in all 5 standard sizes!
