Day of the Night Elf

Day of the Night Elf

Springtime in Darnassus…

After seeing Kat’s post [HERE], I got a yearning for my World of Warcraft days. The battles, the never-ending quests, trade chat …, the raid wipes… ok .. not so much of a yearning, but a fond remembrance. I too headed down to Feyline Fashions and found the male gift for the Into the Blue Hunt.  The Reilly Dusk Outfit is put on with Omega Appliers (something I’m still learning… don’t ask about last weeks beard dilemma 😖) and also has some accessories to complement the look. This gift and all the other gifts on the Into the Blue Hunt are just $1L each. I don’t know why people would invest so much time in a game… seriously…  😉

Call It Serendipity

Alexandra 2

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I did some more sleuthing, and have another hunt item to share with you today.  Serendipity has hidden Alexandra, this gorgeous, formal gown as their prize for The Best of You Hunt.  Featuring shimmering black fabric, gleaming decorative trim, and a daring leg slit, this full length frock is sure to draw all eyes your way as you enter the room.  I especially love the criss-cross straps on the back, which allow for a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   It’s so elegant, yet full of sex appeal.  Best of all, you’ll only have to part with one little Linden dollar to add Alexandra to  your inventory.

Alexandra 1

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

The Best of You Hunt features the best sellers from the participants’ shops, and has some lovely dollarbie prizes.  It runs until March 31st, so there is plenty of time for you to locate the hidden star at Serendipity, and also the other stores on this fantastic hunt.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Kiss & Make Up

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses :).  What a relief!  As you can see, he has almost forgiven me for yesterdays swamping adventures.  Aside from the mantra he is repeating to himself out loud with his eyes closed, over and over again: “I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding“, I think he’s doing ok with it.  His jeep is a little soggy, but will be ok after a day in the sun…  It may take just a few more kisses.

Actually…  the more I think about it, I feel…  If this is my punishment for stalling his jeep in a swamp, I may just do it again tomorrow!

Coming Together

Carson and I have collaborated on a blog entry so that we can share news about a couples matching Glam or Grunge Hunt prize and a really sweet couples pose that is available as a free group gift.  This post is packed full of freebies for both you and your sweetie.

For Her

On myself you can see me wearing the black and white Lauren Dress which is available as a free gift for the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Trashed.  This dress is available in several mesh and mesh body specific sizes, including an alpha.   Make sure to bring your guy with you, because there is a gift for him inside that hidden rose icon too!

For Him

Carson is displaying the Simon Shirt which is the male offering at Trashed for the Glam & Grunge Hunt.  He was also lucky enough to score the Drifter Jeans in rust for free on the lucky board while he was at Trashed which work very nicely with the top.

A Kiss On The Cheek

This adorable kiss on the cheek pose for two is available as a free group gift at Agape Poses with a free group join.  You will actually find a whole wall full of couples poses that are perfect for bloggers or photography.

The Truth Is, I Need Some Puppy Therapy!

Puppy Therapy

Hello Fabulouses!  Aren’t these little guys adorable?  Ripley and I stopped today for a picnic lunch on the Bay of Dreams sim, and while we polished off our food, these little stow-aways snuck into our basket.  I guess we will just have to take them home with us!

I Discovered the Truth

When I logged on to SL today after work, I was thrilled to see a notice from the Truth Hair VIP group.  Zoya, the free March gift, sat patiently waiting for me all bundled up in the group notices.  This lovely updo style has whispy tendrils that beautifully frame the face, and a collection of curls pinned up in the back.  You can add on optional bangs, and long front and back sections to change up the hairstyle.  In my photo, I am featuring the bangs and the long section which has escaped the pins to flow down my back.  I am absolutely in love with this loosely gathered updo!  This versatile hairstyle suits both a formal look and the more casual outfit I am sporting today.  To add Zoya to your inventory, you must be a member of the Truth Hair VIP group , which has a 350L join fee, but the one time investment is well worthwhile because each month, members receive a free full fat pack of a new Truth Hair design.

All Tied Up in Knots

My knotted top today is another 1L hunt prize in the What’s Your Category Hunt.  The Alexandra shirt from Barbed Wire Kisses features a mauve colored fabric with a soft sheen.  With rolled back cuffs and a crisp collar, this top is perfect for an afternoon in the park.  The hunt prize package includes mesh for Isis, TMP, Curvy, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique and Venus as well as mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L.  For a daring look, you can wear this top all on its own, but I chose to pair it with BSassy’s cropped Mix and Match Venice Tank in Rose, which I picked up on the Marketplace for only 49L.  It provided complete coverage yet fit snugly under my over shirt.

Looks Like I Need to Stock Up on Ripley Snacks

Our little surprise passengers’ tummies are growling audibly, so Rip and I had better scurry on home and fix up a batch of kibble and a dessert of the pupster’s favorite treats.  I hope his attitude toward sharing has improved since the incident with Baloo the guard bear!  Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

Gentleman Explorer

Gentleman Explorer

 

Feeling Pithy…

I’ve been on this dig sight for a month and all I have to show for it is sand in my boots. There have been no artifact, no treasure rooms and no mummies. I hate to go back home empty handed. At least I found the Gentleman Explorer outfit for FREE at AdelleArts on the Steam XII Hunt. The explorer outfit comes in the standard XS-XL mesh sizes and includes the outer shirt, the t-shirt front layer, shorts, shoes and a pith helmet, everything you need to dig for long lost treasure or curses, or both! Ok, I just scared myself. I’m outta here!

Dinos in the Hood

Vero Modero

 

Back to Jurassic Park…

When I got to work on Monday, I was greeted by my computer trashing my user profile sometime over the weekend. For most of the morning, I was frantically trying to recover my desktop while attempting to conduct business as usual through pre-technology solutions. I was this close to breaking out a stone tablet and a chisel….

So it is only fitting I wear my Dino Hoodie I found at Vero Modeo as part of the Into the Blue Hunt. This black-scaled and red hoodie comes in the standard mesh XS-XL sizes. The extra large size works great if to want to put it over an existing outfit like my A&D Clothing Matt T-shirt and James Jeans (not free). All the hunt gifts on the Into the Blue Hunt, which runs through March 29th, are just $1L each.  Now get out there and get chomping….

Join Me at the Pub

I'm not Irish But Join me at the Pub_001

Join me at the pub.

I’m not Irish, but join me at the pub anyway. And before you come, be sure to stop by Roped Passions and hunt around for the twisty cube as part of the Twisted Hunt. Now… this is one of the most difficult hunts on the grid, but it’s always worth it and the gifts are free. At Roped Passions there is a main gift for women and a main gift for men and a couple of side gifts as well to make it worth your while.

I’m showing off the Inara Suspender outfit that is the free gift from the Roped Passions main-store as their main gift contribution for the ladies to the Twisted Hunt. You’ll get both the outfit and the shoes. The shoes fit Maitreya or Slink feet.

Outfit Sizes:

  • Regular mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Finishing touches.

To go with my green suspenders, I stopped by the Oceane main-store and picked up their group gift. They have out a beautiful lipstick gift right now that you won’t want to pass up. The group is currently free to join and so the gift is free to pick up. You’ll get 6 colors in system layers as well as an Omega applier and it worked beautifully with my Catwa head.

Don’t miss out!

I also stopped by Adoness where I was able to get some free hair. The freebies are just busting at the seams today! This cute cropped style comes in three colors and all you need to do is wear your FabFree group tag (the group is free to join as always) and Adoness is giving away this cute hairstyle to FabFree members for free as a perk! Pick it up to finish off your look! It comes in carrot, rosy (shown), and sunny.

Vintage Living

Vintage Carson…

The ladies on the blog like to call me vintage, so I’ll bow to their wishes and live a “vintage” life. And an easy way to furnish your Victorian home is follow the hunt path on the Steam XII Hunt. I was able to decorate my living space for FREE by just finding the hunt items. I was also lucky enough to find an outfit (or two) along the way. Find your way to Cutie Larks and the Endymion Outfit can be yours for FREE. Don’t worry ladies, there’s a female gift there for you also! I borrowed the shoes from the Columbiad Engineer Outfit from Sparrow by Design that I showed [HERE] to complete the look.

To the Moon…

But today’s post isn’t about the clothing. I want to show you some of the wonderful and unique items for your house (if you live in the 1890’s) that can be found for FREE on the Steam XII Hunt. The hunt prize at Simply Shelby is the Reclaimed Ash Bookcase – Jules Verne Edition. It’s a beautifully crafted shelving unit with all kinds of Verneian memorabilia mixed in. The Steamer Trunk Coffee Table can be found at Casa de Bebe. The trunk include sit poses and makes a great addition it your next expedition to the unknown. Head down to Wood Works to find the Hurricane Lamp and Table. The Red Velvet Victorian Chaise is the hunt prize from Park Place Home Decor. This chair comes with sits and standing poses and made my morning coffee too! Also included in that gift are Plans for Trip to the Moon. Now if  only had a rocket to get me there. I bet I can find one somewhere on the hunt…

Tempt me.

I stopped by Tori’s Stylez because they tempted me with their free hunt gift offering for the Tie the Knot Hunt… I just couldn’t pass it up. Even if you aren’t planning on tying the knot, you just might want some free lingerie, after all!

What you get.

Hunt down the little ring box (there’s a clue where to look if you click the hunt icon at the entrance of the store) and you’ll get a free package of system layers and an omega applier for this pretty white lingerie.

It includes the ability to sort of mix and match so that you can wear different pieces and leave other pieces off. So if you want to wear the bra and panties only, you can! Want to wear the stockings and the bra? Covered! There is also a button to apply the entire lingerie outfit at once, if you don’t want it to be complicated to get all the pieces in the right spot 😉

Around the World

Steam XII

 

Sparrows and Ferrets and Steam …oh my…

I’m taking a ride around the world and I’m doing it in style. I found the Columbiad Engineer Suit for FREE at Sparrow by Design as part of the Steam XII Hunt. I topped off my look with the  PS Steam XII Hat from The Ferret & Hedgie Shoppee, another FREE hunt gift on the Steam XII Hunt. I’m floating on the breeze in this rideable Hot Air Balloon from MTD Designs, another FREE gift that is on the hunt. There are lots of toys and gizmos on this hunt. You’ll have a good time with all the prizes. I hope the breeze blows me to the next stop on the hunt.
