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!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Sign Rock & Cute Brii HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, May 19.

The latest store hunt at Brii is topping the chart this week. It’s the Rock & Cute Hunt. Sorry guys, Brii is just for the gals, but it’s usually some pretty great stuff. It’s a L$1 hunt by the way.

For the guys, there’s Just For Him, a fair and sim hunt that just started yesterday. I haven’t checked it out yet, but I plan to.

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!

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!

My Outdoor Lounge

Snapshot_002 Yep! I have been doing a little decorating again :) This time, a trip to Collabor88 – where I picked up the Second Spaces Hannah Outdoor Lounge for 88L inspired my little garden seating area that I decorated with freebies and dollarbies from Floorplan and Little Llama.

The I Love You Frame / Nerd comes with three textures which I am displaying in the black framed art and is just 1L in the Floorplan “1L or Less Section”.  The Mr. Darcy Print in the center wooden frame is also available in the same section at Floorplan along with the Le Lait Can that I have rezzed in front of the lounge – also priced at 1L each.

You can find a ton of super cute freebies at Little Llama.  I am displaying the Growing Love pot set, Mason Jar Lights and Bunny Pots – which I picked up all priced at 0L.

Make sure you take a close look at my new sandals too!  These Michelle Sandals are available as a free group gift gacha offer at Pure Poison for inworld members.  Basically how it works is – there is a gacha machine where you can play for them at 50L per play, but there is also a group machine beside it  that allows group members only to have one random free play!  The Pure Poison group is free to join and there is a whollllllle section of accessory/jewelry type items as gifts.

Boho Fedora

Fedora final

Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are making fun weekend plans. Speaking of the weekend, this super fun outfit would make great weekend attire for going out with friends. I usually pick out darker colors and patterns, but I just couldn’t help myself with this one! lol

Have you ever had the urge to throw on one of your significant other’s hats? I do all the time! Finally I got brave and have bought one or two of my own. This greenish-gold fedora reminded me of that. Fedoras are my favorite style of hat to wear, and sometimes having one a little over-sized is fun. This unisex hat is a current FREE gift at Fab Free Headquarters from Couture Chapeau, and it has a re-size script to fit just about any size. There’s no need to join a group, (though we’d love it if you did!) just head on over to FFHQ and pick it up.

Also at FFHQ is this pretty skin from Hankii Pankii. The bright fun make up is part of the skin, and this FREE gift includes several appliers including Slink and Maitreya, as well as a few more. Considering the colorful nature of the outfit, I knew this skin would be a perfect fit!

I’m not sure which part of this FREE group gift from ALB Dream Fashion I like best, the top or the shoes?! If forced to decide, I’d probably pick the shoes, but it would be difficult. I love the bright colorful patchwork pattern, it’s fun and summery. The top also allowed me to show off some skin, which for me really means showing off the tattoos I like so much! Not wanting to show quite so much skin? I think this loose-fitting crop top would look great with a solid colored tank under it as well.

Next, I adore this bumble bee manicure from Nail Me!. Talk about a fun manicure that is perfect for summer! This set comes with toenail appliers too, so  your tootsies can be as cute as your fingertips. In addition there are appliers for Slink nails, and an Omega applier. This set is the Nail Me! contribution to the Birds and Bees Hunt. The BBH is a 1 linden hunt.

The cell phone I used with the pose from Velvet Poses is now a Marketplace dollarbie from No Cabide. Not only is this cell super cute, it comes with a texture change hud so you can match your phone to more of your stuff! Skyler showed this cute phone originally in one of her posts here. She also included a close-up of the texture change hud!

Like the “Selfie” pose from Velvet Poses? You can get a pack of 5 selfie poses (phone  not included) for just 50 linens at the ToBeOutsider event. That’s just 10 lindens per pose!

Whew! That was a lot of stuff! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Birds & The Bees Hunt SignIf you’re a hunter like me, you’re happy that there are always so many hunts going on at any given time. Heck, if it weren’t for hunting, my wardrobe wouldn’t be continually stuffed with new clothes. I very nearly never have to wear the same thing twice, though I do have my favorites… and for the most part, they all came from hunts!

If you’re not a hunter, you need to get in the game! Hunts are a great way to get all kinds 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 check out all the May hunts going on right now. Click the names for more information on each hunt.

See you out on the hunt!
