Zest-fully Lumae

Zesty Cart Sale

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! I have to say I am a little bit bummed that the weekend has come to an end already. To cure my the-weekend-is-over blues, I did a little shopping. Naturally! Lucky for everyone, the Cart Sale is still going on at The Wash. Needless to say, I had a little nerd-gasm when I saw this uber cute outfit on the Zesty cart. There isn’t anything I don’t love about this skirt and crop-top combo. For 10 lindens, what’s not to love?! The outfit is fully mesh and comes in standard mesh sizes. Also at the Zesty cart, matching shoes (meant to be worn with Slink Mid feet) for an additional 10 lindens. You’ll find this and other playful pieces for guys and gals at the Zesty cart.

Zesty Close

Not quite ready to end my shopping adventure, I picked up this lovely skin at  Lumae for 75 lindens. This  Lumae skin is their current Lazy Sunday item, and it will remain at the super low price of 75 lindens per tone until the next Lazy Sunday round. The best part, it includes all the extras. You get brow options, cleavage options, freckle options, and just about every applier you could imagine. This includes appliers for mesh bodies, heads, and yes the boobies too!

An Enchanted Oceane

The Enchantment Hunt drew me back again, as well as the chance to show off some fabulous goodies at two other stores. If your into cosplay or fantasy roleplay… this is your month to make away like a bandit — or mermaid as the case may be!

Enchanted Oceane [2]

I recently checked out the FREE Ball at Analog Dog and discovered it had been updated. There are a few new styles inside, including this great rigged mesh style called Lolly all for FREE. It comes in light reds with a color change hud and though you have to hunt for the nearly transparent bubble at the back of the sim, it’s well worth the search!

I also stopped by Oceane and played the in-store Gachas which had some really wonderful prizes for lovers of fantasy avatars! My Oceane Lauren Fantasy Skin in Blue was a 75L gacha prize and was just perfect for this underwater look — but don’t hesitate to check this one out even if blue is not your color, because the gacha had 19 total colors as possible prizes. It does not come with appliers, but don’t let that deter you. I usually have a difficult time matching skins without them, but was able to match this skin to my Slink hands within minutes because the shading near the wrists is made to blend so easily.

I also played the Oceane Fairytale Lips gacha and landed the Rainbow Rare hook line and sinker to add to my skin. Woot! It was only 50L per spin and added a nice touch to this fantasy skin.

And all mermaids have to eat, yes? If you peek at the picture below, my fun Swallow Yum Fishie (20 possible colors) was a 15L Gacha prize also from Oceane.

Enchanted Oceane [1]

And the Enchantment hunt continues, but only until September 5th, so be sure to make your final rounds to pick up the fabulous gifts before you miss out. In this post, I’m showcasing a few more for you! These two poses are the FREE hunt gifts from [Black Tulip] called Ariel. Astrid’s stunning mesh mermaid tail and bra are the FREE Enchantment gift from Mer-Chandise Cove.

You’ll have to look a little closer at the pictures to catch the final gifts I’m showing, but I’ve always been a firm believer that small details are what make an avatar stand out. My pink nose piercing (which comes with a color change hud offering over 20 color options as well as options to change glow, glossiness, and and brightness) is the FREE Enchantment Hunt Gift from Gaeline Creations.

If you take a swim by no.Match, you’ll be able to pick up this gorgeously detailed Mermaids Hairpin as their FREE offering for the Enchantment Hunt. And last (but certainly not least) Astrid’s mysterious, come-hither eyes are a FREE Enchantment Hunt gift from antielle. There are six generous color choices in the package, though I’m wearing the blue.

Your Friday Hunt Report

Fi_s_Hunts_-_African_Summer_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.

There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!

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.

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

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!

A beautiful dream!

My new Freya lingerie is FREE from Maai, it is their new GG and the group is FREE to join. Pretty detailing, sheer in the right places and modest in others with a touch of lace this set is just divine. It includes system layers, slink, TMP and Omega appliers. Maai is always generous with her appliers. I mentioned the FREE 7 Deadly S{k}ins Aug GG here and that there was 1 more skin in the box. This is the paler skin, marshmellow. It has lovely soft features and is a pretty everyday skin. You may already own it if you grabbed it before if not you have to the end of the month to still get it for FREE with a 50L group join fee.

Snapshot These dreamy Papillon (butterfly) balloons are FREE from Moon Amore at the current round of Collab88. You get several colors in the pack. They are designed to be worn but I rezzed mine for a dreamy drifty effect. At a mere 1 prim each you can rezz them too. SnapshotI happened on this Dreamfield with pearls on Marketplace which was the perfect final touch for my dreams. The bubbles and sparkles drift up slowly. They are transfer only but at 1L a set you could grab as many as you need to fill your dreams with them.

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.

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.

Flowers on Friday

Snapshot_013Happy Friday everyone!!   Yep… I have two posts for you today.  Mostly because the first one was supposed to go up yesterday alas I didn’t get it done in time, and also because I wanted to share some exclusive to today news!

If you haven’t checked the Fifty Linden Friday list yet, you really should!  The list this week is killer :)   If you are not familiar with Fifty Linden Friday, it is a weekly event that happens every Friday in which 10 or so rotating shops offer one or two items each at 50L for the day located at their respective mainstores.  In my photo I am displaying the following participating items:

  •  Glam Affair:  Glam Affair is offering two skins today for just 50L.  The skin I am in today, which is Summer V3 (Jamaica) and an additional skin called Katra Polar August.  These skins come with several different eyebrow and eyebrow shaper options.
  •  C’est La Vie:  The Serry Bag is available, complete with a texture change hud so you can match it up to whatever you are wearing.
  •  Fri.Day:  You’ll find the Effy Sandals on sale for 50L today, and as a bonus you’ll get them in not just one colour but two (steel as shown and dust).
  •  Elikatira:  The Elodie mesh hairstyle is available today for FLF, including the exclusives colour hud which allows for tons of shade variety.

You can find a complete listing in the Fifty Linden Friday inworld group which you can join by hitting the FLF sign at any of the four participating shops I have mentioned today.  It’s free to join, and then you’ll get the future week’s offerings via notice :).

If these 50L delights were not news enough for you, you will be happy to hear that my Haler Loose Dress is available as a free group gift along with a wide variety of other gifts at Black Rose!

Have a great weekend!
