The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

Glitterati Garden

Glitterati GardenIt’s Friday and I’m so glad the weekend is here! I’ve been away due to Real Life getting in the way, demanding thing that it is, and I feel like I was gone a month. It is nice to be back, consequently I’ve got a lot of great things I want to share with you. There are lots of great group gifts out this month, this elegant black gown is the August group gift from Glitterati. The gown from Glitterati comes in standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha layer. One thing I noticed right away is the way the gown’s texture seems to change color depending on the lighting, which I think adds a touch of whimsy to this pretty gown. The Glitterati group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This gown alone is worth the join fee in my opinion, get it while you still can! Glitterati Garden 1One of the great things about a solid black gown is you can add pops of color with your accessories. I love the style of this earring and necklace jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The FREE set is called “Arabesque” and has a lovely filigree look to the metal parts, complimented by bright teal drops. The “Arabesque” set is the August group gift at Indulge Temptation. Included is a hud so you can re-size the jewelry to suit your avatar. There is a one time join fee of 50 lindens for the Indulge Temptation group, however I think the jewelry set is more than worth the fee.

Now that we have the gown, and the jewelry, here’s something lovely to go underneath. One more awesome August group gift, This lingerie set is from Maniac Store.

Maniac ElephanteThere are several FREE group gifts out right now at Maniac Store. This black lace lingerie set is just one of them. The set is really pretty on, and comes with tons of appliers as well as system layers. The list of appliers includes TMP, Banned, Maitreya, Lolas Tango, Lolas Muse, *Linc, Lush, Lena, Perfect Bum, Brazillia Doll, and Slink. Needless to say there are lots of options for wearing this sexy August gift. The Maniac Store does have a one time fee of 10 lindens, however as I mentioned before there are several gifts out as well as lucky chairs. Lastly, like the 3 poses in the above photo? These too are an August gift, this time from Elephante. You’ll find these fun static poses in the Elephante subscribo for FREE!

Your Friday Hunt Report

hunt SL final addicted to applier signGood Morning Fabulous Hunters! It’s hard to believe that Labor Day (the sort of official end of of the summer here in the USA) is almost upon us. There’s lots to be happy about in the hunt world this weekend here in the last bit of summer vacation.

So take a gander at all these fine hunts and find the one that’s just right for you. Your bulging inventory will thank you for all the free (or very nearly free) stuff before it’s time to head back to school.

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Days of magic

Hello Fabulous Folks! I’m getting my fantasy fix today at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival and I love it.

Days of magic

In RL, I happen to love Cosplay and have a few costumes that… yes… I wear. But there’s so few places to wear them. I mean… they’d toss me out of the Home Depot if I came in dressed as a Druid or something. So that leaves Second Life and trust me… I take advantage of it. I’ve been wearing the “Lisissandra” dress and jewelry from UNA non stop since I won them at the Carnival. I’m showing the Lisissandra top in the black and silver with the silver arm bands, the blue and white skirt with the silver belt, the black leather collar and bracers, and the silver headdress.

Days of magic

It’s such a gorgeous complete look I had to play till I won them all! The skirt is fit mesh but it doesn’t come with an alpha layer that I could find. But any slim skirt alpha will work nicely. The belt, collar, and bracers all come with a HUD to change the metal colors and the Headdress has a HUD to change the colored stones.  All this for only 50L per play!

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival runs until September 12!  Here’s your taxi to the event -> Let’s GO!

** Oh… and that guy…? He was dead when I got there….

I’m beachy keen, thanks for asking!

Happy Thursday everyone! Today I thought I’d show off a little beachy fun, as I realized that’s it’s been a few months since I did a post in a bathing suit! For shame!! Wasting all this lovely summer time without a good bikini photo shoot. Well, that is now remedied, let me show you what I got!

beachy1

The Groovy bikini, matching sarong, as well as jewelry that I am wearing, are all Marketplace L$1 promo’s from Iffyta, and are all texture change with provided HUD’s. For L$1, you get the mesh, 2 piece bikini, necklace and both bracelets, as well as a pair of shoes, which I am not wearing, HERE. For another L$1, you can get the matching sarong, HERE. All of these pieces come with an 8 choice texture HUD of super fun and colorful retro prints. I really had a hard time choosing which one to show off. If you love the texture choices, you will be interested to know, that there is a pair of stiletto ankle boots, and a fun little sun dress that are also in this Groovy line, and are both only L$1 as well! You just need to look at the bottom of the pages I linked, and you should see the links for the other items. Really, you should just check out the whole store page, as there are many other free and L$1 promo’s available, not to mention many other under L$75 finds. These promo’s are a limited time special, so don’t wait too long to look them up.

beachy2

One of the reasons why I chose the pattern on bikini that I did, was because of the shoes I wanted to wear. These pink and wood beauties are from KoiKoi, and unfortunately, the owner of KoiKoi is closing the store’s doors as of the end of the month :( Luckily for us shoe lovers, she has decided to reduce the price of all those beautiful shoes. For only L$50, you can pick out any single pair of shoes in the store, such as the gorgeous Filament Pink clogs I am sporting. If you can’t decide on a single colour, and just love them all, the fatpacks are set to only L$200, and these are all way more customizable with an included colour change HUD that lets you change individual parts of each shoe. Either way, I was a happy shoe-camper! As I said, you only have until Aug 31, so get your shoe-loving booties over there.

My other reason for choosing the texture on my swimsuit, was how well it went with the beautiful skin I am wearing. The Niska in Sangria is another lovely skin offering from one of my favourite skin stores, Lumae. As part of the most recent Lazy Sunday, you can snap up each skin tone for only L$75 a piece. I happen to be wearing my favourite tone, Rosy. As always with Lumae’s Lazy Sunday items, these will be left out for an extended time, and actually, you have until Aug 29 to grab these, as Lumiya Rae happened to put the skins out just a little bit late! We won’t fault her for that though, will we :) These skins come with every applier you could possibly hope for, and the orangey red shade of the lipstick and eyeshadow is so pretty, how could you not want one of these skins? The only thing missing…is an actual sangria!

I wonder if I could get a waiter out this far on the beach? *Waves her hands and helloooo’s* Alright lovelies, I am going to see about getting myself a fruity drink. I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again, this same time next week! Until then, TTFN.

Formal… with a chance of dragons

Hello and happy Tuesday, my FabFree folks!

tiffanyjpg_001

After several posts of cute and casual, I was starting to feel the need to remind myself what classy and elegant felt like. And as luck would have it. I found just the thing while I was shopping, of all places…. the Thrift Shop. If you haven’t been ‘in the know’, the Thrift Shop is a regular event and this round began on August 8th and runs until August 29th. That’s 22 days of 50% ( or so ) off the gathered designers and two massive rows of Gacha machines for us addicts.

I found this gorgeous purple evening gown in Tiffany’s Designs’ booth not for 50% off… but for FREE. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. You get the five standard sizes and all this elegance.

The other thing I had to have from the Thrift Shop was this wonderful little dragon ear cuff. I hesitated to show him off with such a formal dress then I thought, yeah… that’s something I’d wear together in real life…. ‘Cause you know, you can’t get too stuffy when you’re going formal. ;)
tiffanyjpg_002
This is the ‘Dragovar Ear Cuff’ from Ecru and he is only 10L at the Thrift Shop. The little dragon comes with both a right ear and a left ear version and a HUD with eight metallic colors. He is clearly meant to be worn with ‘human’ type ears but a little futzing with the edit controls and I had him fit to my own pointy ears easily enough. I have a feeling I won’t be taking him off any time soon.

You have until the 29 of August to go check out the Thrift Shop so don’t delay!

Coming soon to FabFree!

When I stumbled across this cute group gift at Ruca Tease, I knew I had to have it.  Why?  This is totally something I would wear in real life!  The over-sized sweater comes in 5 sizes, and the package includes matching earrings, boots, and system layer jeans.  A great leather shoulder bag is also available as a gift.  Not only is it gorgeous, your friends can sneak treats from your bag just by clicking on it.  It is my new favorite toy! The group is only $20 L to join, and is more than worth it, with multiple group gits for men and women.

 

Coming soon to FabFree!

My new cupcakey outfit was the perfect thing to run errands.  My first stop had to be The Grocery Store and Market.  This may be one of the funniest stores I have been in!  Grab your free cart and wear it, then cruise the aisles for all sorts of fun and free food to fill it up.  Among the freebies are some really great and fun food and celebration sets, so this store is really worth a stop.

Envy Me…

She’s classic, elegant… and the life of the party. The gentlemen all want to dance with her… and the ladies all envy her…

Envy Me [1]

And if you stop by Junbug‘s quick as can be, you can pick up the Lady Crawley gown in Envy, and be envied too, because Junbug is celebrating 10,000 Facebook likes and 4,500 Group Members with this lovely formal mesh gown as their in-store gift!

Envy Me [2]

… and she has that certain touch of je ne sais quoi that makes those in the room pause… perhaps stare…

Or maybe it’s the breathtaking jewelry that bedecks her slender neck and wrists… which can be yours as well if you drop by Chop Zuey and pick up their newest Group Gift! This To The Daisy Grey Set (which includes a stunning necklace, ring, bracelets, and earrings) is breathtakingly detailed and perfect for any formal occasion!

Out for a stroll

SnapshotYou can’t have too many little black dresses and this one has a bonus of having a color hud that also includes a little blue, green and red dress.

This comfy casual mesh wrap dress is a FREE gift from Faboo at the SWANK event with a FREE group join to the swank group. This dress also has an open back that would be perfect if you are a back tattoo wearer. My hair is a FREE GG from Besom called Jade. It comes with a ton of color huds from naturals to fantasy so click away til you find your perfect shade. I opted to have some fun and wear something not my usual shade! Pru opted for a totally different look which you can see here. Fab hair in any color!

Snapshot

Speaking of Besom you may want to hang onto this group. They have 4 Lucky Letter boards giving out FREE hair. I got lucky and got Pretty Lair which comes with a ton of color huds.

Snapshot I had to pull my hair back so you could see the pop of color  this FREE set of jewelry from Chop Zuey adds to my little black dress. The Chaconne set comes with a necklace, bracelet and earrings. This is from their FREE non members section so you don’t even have to join a group for this set, yay! Now if only I could pick a flavor of ice cream.
