Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL texturemania-6-logoIt’s Friday! That means it’s time to take a look at all of the fabulous hunts going on right now. What better way to spend the weekend than running around in Second Life finding all kinds of cool new stuff for your inventory?

The May hunts are getting ready to wrap up their runs, so if you want to get in on these, now’s the time! We’ll have a whole crop of shiny new June hunts next week, but more on that later. I for one am looking forward to lots of summer hunting fun.

New to hunting?  Hunts are a fun way to pick up a lot of free (or nearly free) stuff. They aren’t so difficult to do and you can find free advice at FabFree and HUNT SL to help get you started.

Here’s all the hunts. Find the one that suits your fancy and get going! Poke the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

New shoes make me feel just peachy!

Well hello all you Fab readers! I’m back! Did you miss me? I sure missed you. RL took me away for far longer than anticipated, but I couldn’t stay away, even if RL has only let up a little bit. So, for the time being, I will be posting every Thursday, and I couldn’t be more excited to get back into the swing of things.

Now, it was lucky for me that the day I came back to FabFree was the day Pure Poison sent out a notice about having a new group gift gacha out! The gorgeous Daya pumps, that I am showing off in Brown, are available in 6 colours, with a rare animal print pattern as well. I’m sure all you loyal readers know how their gacha group gifts work, but for any new readers, or those that just aren’t familiar, let me explain. Head over to the store, and put on your Pure Poison group tag, which is free to join, and hit the blue gacha machine with the group gift sign on it. You get 1 free play for being a group member. Now, if you are not a group member, or did not get the colour you wanted from the group machine, despair not, because right beside the blue gacha is a green gacha that is L$50 per play for everyone. Everybody wins this way…and I love it! I happen to be wearing the SLink rigged version, but you also get an unrigged SLink pair, and a pair for Maitreya feet.

The other goodie I have to show off, is from one of my favourite stores, Alaskametro. Every month, there is a new Facebook giftie available, and while May is almost up, you still have a little bit of time to grab the May gift. In this month’s gift, you receive a whole lot of peachy goodness! There are makeup and polish huds for most head and body types you can think of, as well as tattoo layers for the makeup. The polish comes with 2 choices, a solid peach, and a polka-dotted peach, which I’m able to show you both on one hand now that I’ve updated my SLink hands which allow selecting individual nails for different colours!!! (What a great update to come back to SL to!) There are 2 lipsticks, 2 eyeshadow, and 2 blushes, all in the peach shade family. I happen to be wearing the Peach Juice lipstick, and the Peach Shimmer eyeshadow. To get this free pack of peach yumminess, head to the Alaskametro Facebook page, like it, if you haven’t already, and hit the special promotions tab. It will take you to a page which will give you a password, then head on over to the main store, stand near the gift poster, and on channel 33, say the password in chat. Example: /33 ‘password’, where ‘password’ is replaced with the actual password. Make sure you type it exactly as you saw it on the page, capital letters and all.

Phew! Can you tell that I’ve missed writing for all of you lovelies? If I had a word quota, I think this post would have used up several posts worth! LOL. Anywho. That is it for me for now. I will be back in a week with some more fabulous finds to show off. Until then, TTFN *waves*

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Picnic In The ParkSo many hunts, so little time. I keep telling myself that I’ll get to all these hunts but they just keep slipping though my schedule. If only real life could just be put on hold! My partner and I recently finished the Puss & Boots Hunt. It was a fun hunt, though I haven’t even started opening the boxes yet.

Anyway, there are lots of hunts to partake of if you have the time. Good luck with that!

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, it’s time to get your feet wet. Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So peruse these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Sith Happens

Sith Happens

There comes a time in everyone’s Second Life when you have to sit down, enjoy some popcorn, and watch the drama unfold, because Sith happens! Seriously, we have all had one of those moments. In light of the drama that happens in SL, Roawenwood put out this fun popcorn bag as their current FREE group gift. This popcorn has a male and female sitting pose, along with a popcorn-munching animation. To get this fun gift, join the FREE Roawenwood in-world group and check past notices.

While sitting back and enjoying your popcorn, you might want a few pillows to prop yourself up. Get comfy and enjoy these “Priestess” pillows by BYRNE. They are a FREE gift at the May round of Create Your Own Tarot. There’s no need to join a group, just stop by the BYRNE booth at CYOT and pick them up. You’ll also find a mesh t-shirt gift for the guys!

So I’m sure you caught me being “punny” earlier with my Sith happens joke. The Star Wars nerd in me couldn’t help herself. Apparently there is an equally punny side to the Que Bella designer as well, considering this “Sith Happens” mini tee is the Que Bella contribution to the Light Side vs. Dark Side Hunt.  This cute top comes in standard system layers and includes several appliers for meshy parts. The hunt is FREE, and you’re searching for a cookie, ’cause everyone knows the Dark Side has cookies. :P

Sith Happens 2

Also part of the Light Side vs. Dark Side hunt are these great wedge heels from Babygirls. I like how at first the pattern looks like an obscure argyle, then when you look closer, tie fighters! Like the top, these shoes are FREE and, again you’re looking for a cookie! The hunt ends June 4th, so you have a little time to score these great shoes. They are meant to be worn with Slink Mid feet.

Here are the details, Enjoy and Happy Hunting!

Free Dove Hunt – Part 2

Free Dove Hunt 2

I can’t believe this long week is almost coming to an end! Haha Thankfully the May Mini Hunt at Free Dove  lasts all month, so no reason to miss out on these great hunt prizes. This second post about the Free Dove  hunt includes a few more fantastic items that I just had to show you. There are several more hunt items that I haven’t shown, but I do believe half the fun of a hunt is discovering the gifts.

Just in case you missed it, here’s a link to Part 1.

I mentioned before how cute this dress is when I showed it in another pattern in my first Free Dove  hunt post, and I still find it absolutely adorable. I love the dainty little flowers on this version. This mesh dress is a FREE hunt prize by Fission. Also by Fission are these sort of fractal patterned leggings. I could see wearing these mesh pants with a cute solid colored tank or a big comfy sweater. Again these are a FREE hunt prize at Free Dove. Next, you may remember that chunky ring by Masoom shown in my first Free Dove hunt post, well these equally chunky and equally fun bangles are another FREE hunt prize. These bright bangles kinda remind me of the 80s when neon was so very in, which makes them even cooler ’cause they’re “retro”! Last, I think these black and blue plaid pumps are my absolute favorite of the Free Dove hunt prizes. They are also by Fission, and are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. I think they have a great vintage look, and are just darling on!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!!

Hair – little bones. Suffragette – Ombre&Roots

HeadLelutka – Aria

BodyMaitreya – Lara

Dress – Fission: Go Outside-Pink – FREE FDH Prize @Free Dove

Leggings – Fission: Heather leggings-Tan – FREE FDH Prize @Free Dove

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Fi_s_Hunts_-_Gingham_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! There is a pretty darn good lineup of hunts going on right now, but some of them end TODAY. I’ve marked these for you just in case you want to get in on them at the last minute.

You should be able to find a hunt theme to enjoy. We have cats, whimsy, camping, the 50’s, antiques, and more as the currently running hunt themes. I’ve personally got the Gingham Hunt on my list of things to do, but gearing up for the SL12B Community Celebration (Second Life’s 12th birthday) is taking up a lot of my time. I’ll tell you more about that in a later article. I’m pretty excited about it.

If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, what are you waiting for? Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So take a look at these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Just prod the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!
