Today’s Top 10 Hunts

Mini Hunt @ Free Dove - Chop ZueyGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, November 10.

The Chop Zuey mini hunt at The Free Dove has been rocking the Top 10 for days now. If you’re in the need for some very fine women’s jewelry, then you might want to head over there and pick some up. There are nine gifts and the hunt is free.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

La Belle

“Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.” — John Ray

It is often the small things and simplest pleasures that make us smile. I think that is why I love this round up of gifts and treasures so much. Alone they are simple… but together they are stunning. And they made me smile. Did I need them to be beautiful? Nah… but I felt beautiful wearing them.

La Belle 1

“Let us live for the beauty of our own reality.” — Charles Lamb.

I think Charles Lamb would have approved of the reality woven by the gifts above. [Muse] is celebrating 1000 members with this resizable Evil Eye Choker gift (though there is nothing evil about this gorgeous gift) which you can pick up for FREE with your NSP Floral Group tag. There is a 75L group join fee, but the monthly gifts and goodies make it worthwhile.

Seeing my own reality through that eye, I knew I needed something special to go with it. And Salt & Pepper didn’t let me down. Their group gifts are usually jewelry, but this month the creator opted to give this sexy black romper called Kiara as the group gift. It is FREE with your group tag and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. Again there is a small join fee (100L) but like NSP Floral, the monthly gifts makes it worth it.

I finished off my adventure into my own reality with a spin on the 30L Julianne Shoes Gacha at Belle Epoque. These shoes fit medium high Slink feet and come in quite a few colors to match just about anything in your wardrobe. I love the strappy, open-toe style!

La Belle 2

“The more often we see things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often we see them less and less.” — Joseph B. Wirthlin

I wasn’t done with Belle Epoque this weekend, though, as you can see in the picture above. Sometimes you need to take a little time to stop and smell the flowers. And Belle Epoque‘s 30L Saturday offer is just the thing to remind us of all the beautiful and wonderful things in life that we often take for granted. Above, I am modeling the Imelda Dress in Pink (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and 3 colors – each for only 30 L!) and there are matching shoes for each color as well! The shoes are also only 30L each for this 30L round. Belle Epoque is leaving this lovely offering out for the weekend, but be sure to stop by before the end of Sunday evening or you will miss out! Hurry!

My necklace is a fantastic 1L Market place find by Cazimi Designs called Diantha Modern Girly Partial Set and was just the thing to set off this flowery dress. It came with earrings too (not shown). For 1L, the quality is hard to beat!

La Belle 3

“Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.” — David Hume.

Need something more studious? Belle Epoque‘s creator outdid herself this weekend. Well known for medieval fantasy, this FREE group gift with your FREE group join called Eleanor has a vintage appeal that with a few of the right accessories takes on a contemplative look that is just right for vintage roleplay, a date night, or even just casual wear. It not only includes the skirt and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, but you also get the resizable hat as well.

For a little added flair, I made my way upstairs to the Shoe Gachas again, this time trying my luck with the 30L Emily Shoe machine. A spin won me the pumps in Brown which turned out to be a perfect complement to the outfit. I also paired it with this Sunglass Necklace I found on the Marketplace from BricOle‘s Designs for only 20L.

La Belle 4

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” — Anne Frank.

On a final note, Belle Epoque‘s 30L offerings this weekend are incredibly generous and there really is something to make just about any shopper happy. Not only is the Imelda dress and matching shoes available this weekend, but you can also pick up the Berezia Dress in three colors for 30L each. I’m modeling it in the picture above in champagne.

And for those who love capes and hats but are (like me) distressed that you can almost never find hair to fit under them, this Berezia Cape from Belle Epoque in three matching colors with four hair color choices (again 30L each for this weekend only, so hurry) is the perfect solution. Like the dress, the cape is mesh, but comes in 3 standard sizes and fit perfectly with a fabulous ‘flow’ to it as you can see in the picture above — a great inventory “must have” for roleplayers… or anyone really!

Seahorses in Fall


Happy Saturday Fab Free! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Even though we recently had a Free Hair Day on the blog, in my Second Life, there is no such thing as too much hair! I am certain I’m not alone in this. With that in mind, Besom recently put out a new Group Gift hairstyle called Bellinia.

The fanciful name fits this FREE hairstyle from Besom very well. It’s a lush long style with feathery waves. The Besom group is FREE to join, and well worth the effort. You’ll find previous group gifts still available, as well as a group only Midnight Mania Board at the Besom main location. Not to mention the gift is a fatpack, which means it includes every color option available! I have to admit, I felt very mermaid-like with this gorgeous hair, so the FREE gift Luminesse has out at the current round of SWANK is kind of perfect to show with it.

There are always great finds at SWANK, and the Luminesse gift is fabulous to say the least. This specific gift does not require you to wear any group tags, just stop by the SWANK event and pick it up for FREE. The gift includes this beach-y necklace shown, and a matching pair of earrings. Even though most of us don’t think of seahorses as typical for fall accessories, I think the bold colors are great for any season. Besides, this is Second Life, just about anything goes!

So I’ve got a new hairstyle, and some bling, time to get the nails done! Nail Me! has the perfect solution, as they often do. The November Group Gift at Nail Me! is a colorful set of paisley printed nails that are too pretty to miss out on. This group gift is completely FREE, and the Nail Me! group is FREE to join. So that you can see all of the beautiful vibrant colors in this nail palette, I’ve included the vendor photo below.


Here are the details, Enjoy!

Warrior Fey

I have been led merrily up the garden path today. The Gacha Garden, that is!

Warrior Fey

The Gacha Garden is a month long Gacha event set in a lovely fairy tale garden and I did find a Fairy. A tough Warrior Fairy archer who will fill you full of arrows if you set a foot wrong in her forest. This is the Warrior fairy set from Astralia. The set includes the gorgeous Rare wings with a HUD to change the colors, a quiver in 2 colors, a set of arrows, a single arrow. the antlers and a set of small wings. And last but most special: a vine entwined bow.  I say special because the bow is only available if you play the single machine twenty times. The special twenty play items are called “Seeds of Inspiration”. And each machine has one. Check out the website for all the details on this special play.

Warrior Fey

As I was wandering the garden path, I saw this lovely golden tiara at the Axix machine and I knew it would go perfectly with my warrior fairy. There are three designs available for the Zaria Crown, one with just the crown, one with the crown and the flowers ( with a color change HUD) that I’m showing you and the Rares which have the flowers and a drape of pearls.

Warrior Fey

Last but not least, I needed an action pose for my warrior girl. NC had this well built pose called “Hunting” on the Marketplace for a mere 10L. I think it works really well. Then I needed a good pose to show off the new bow…  Verocity had the ‘Isis Pose’ set on sale for only 1L on their Marketplace. This is a sixe pose set that includes it’s own prop bow. I think I’m set.


The Gacha Garden Event runs until November 30, so don’t delay! Your Taxi to the Garden Gacha Event -> http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/The%20Gacha%20Garden/130/224/21

A Mermaid for Tuesday

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

John Masefield, Sea-Fever.

Mermaid Tuesday

I miss the beach… I think in some other life I must have lived somewhere near the shore. When I saw this ‘Mer Camisk’ from For Fs Sake as part of the 25L Tuesday sale… I had to have it. Not only is it a delightful outfit, but it comes with a ton of items. You get the net camisk, the bikini top and bottoms, the rope belt, armbands and thigh band with it’s little net purse of mer-treasure, the seashells necklace, PLUS two skirts. All for 25L but only today.

mermaid Collage

As I was putting my Mer-look together, Sentinus sent a note card with the perfect Mer- hair to complete my look. This is ‘Eleanor’ and it’s one of two hairstyle Group Gifts right now. Eleanor comes with a HUD with sixteen colors ranging from this pretty Mermaidy green to more natural colors.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Dia De Los Muertos HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, November 3.

If you love macabre painted skeletons and skulls, then you should have a look at the Dia De Los Muertos Hunt, which is on top our list of most popular hunts today. It’s a L$1 hunt in which you’ll be looking for a sugar skull cookie. There are 14 stores in this hunt so you can probably finish it in about an hour.

If you’re of the female persuasion, then you might want to check out the mini hunts at Free Dove. They have three going on and they’re all in the Top 10. Each hunt has between 8 and 10 items scattered around the Free Dove shop.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

Arabian Nights and Wicked Pleasures

“A loss that can be repaired by money is not of such very great importance.” [The Arabian Nights]

There are always conflicting ideas about the finer things in life — and whether or not they are material wealth or riches in the form of things like health and family. The good news is, that if your wardrobe is drooping, it won’t cost you much more than a bit of patience for these striking Arabian Nights looks!

Wicked Pleasures 1

I discovered that ALB Fashion has out a gorgeous new tunic dress as a group gift called Sandy for FREE if you wear your group tag. It is a one time fee of 500L to join, but there are quite a few quality past group gifts out and more gifts in the future to come. The tunic dress came in two colors and in all the standard sizes for a great fit (I paired it with jeans and it made a stunning top).

My necklace, pictured above, is a FREE gift, but it’s going to take you some patience and persistence. It is a two part necklace (so you could wear just the short or just the long piece for added versatility) and called India and is a Mini Mania Board prize by Wicked. The board is 10 slaps and starts over every time it reaches 10, randomly giving out 1 prize to 1 person who has slapped the board. I was thrilled as this necklace with its great indigo color matched my new tunic just perfectly!

Wicked Pleaures 2

My Wicked Alex Sweater shown above is also FREE at Wicked, but like the India necklace will take a bit of patience and luck. Currently at Wicked, not only is there a Mini Mania Board out for shoppers to slap, but there are also two lucky letter chairs. I was super lucky as not only did I get the India necklace, but my letter came up for this gorgeous sweater as well! The sweater comes in all the standard mesh sizes and while the sweater part itself is one solid color, the bra part comes with a color change Hud for versatility making this a fabulous giftie! Woot!

Wicked Pleasures 3

If patience is not your thing, it’s still worth stopping by Wicked for the current group gift. Shown above is the FREE group gift offering – the Sally Blouse in Rouge. The group is FREE to join, making this gift completely FREE. Like all the other items, it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is a great fit!

Wicked Pleasures 4

I paired my Sally Blouse with a lovely jewelry Gift from Chop Zuey that is in store currently. This stunning set called Dragon Heart Demi Parure is yours FREE with your group tag (and one time join fee of 350L but don’t worry — there are regular gifts to make it well worth it!). The choker and earrings are resizable and texture change and you can change the two gems on the earrings separately allowing for multiple combinations of colors! What a treat!

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween?

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 1

Nunthing to wear yet for Halloween? Or interested in a fabulous roleplay costume and on a tight budget? I have your solution!

My nun habit is by Bombard and was an easy snag from the Marketplace for only 10L. It only comes with a flexy skirt and system layers but the flow and fit of the outfit (and quality of the make) was so impressive I was pleased despite the lack of mesh.

I used slink hands and the lack of my beloved mesh body wasn’t even noticeable with this well made costume (the necklace is included and the outfit comes in several colors and styles, not just the black I’m showing… quite a bargain for only 10L).

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 2

+Spellbound+ has put out a beautiful last minute Halloween Group Gift in the form of this hair called Asylum. It comes in a full color pack, and the creator is generously giving out the ‘tears’ face tattoo as well! It is your FREE with your Group Tag which is a mere 100L for the Group Join fee… well worth it I say!

Nunthing to Wear for Halloween 3

Not only does the hair include a full range of color changes, but let’s not leave out the versatility of the ‘veil/habit’ the hair comes with as well. It has 4 logo options for one… “no logo” the cross (shown above), and upside down cross, or “NILF” if you wish. It too is color change with 7 color choices to match various outfits for you making this a fabulous costume or roleplay hair.


Astrid (Portia Swords) is wearing…

Skin – Essences – Quinta07 *medium02* brunette
