Pineapple of my Eye

Pineapple of my Eye

Are you ready to bulk up your wardrobe?  It’s always important to have a few basics to throw on – sometimes they make an outfit!  Well, Alaskametro and the Free Dove have teamed up to create a little fun free hunt so that you can have your own capsule wardrobe full of super awesome items!

High and Low

I went over to Alaskametro’s mainstore and searched the area for the hunt prizes which are found in shopping bags peppered around the shop.  Two of the prizes I found are this long tank top (which comes with 3 different textures) and these moto leggings that I think are super versatile.  You could mix and match all the prizes from this hunt and end up with some really stellar looks.  I’ve put the store ad below so you can see what there is to be had.  You will find half of the prizes at Alaskametro, and half of them at The Free Dove.  Best of all, it’s all free!

Time to Shimmer and Shine

Don't Tie Me Down
Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!

Last week, when I returned to Indyra to copy the landmark for my blog post, Ripley plunked himself down next to a sign in the plaza just outside Indyra’s door and refused to budge.  He kept gazing at me with his dark chocolate eyes, looking at the sign, and back at me.  After one glance at the “Tie the Knot Hunt” sign, I realized my canine companion was pointing out another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

We had to don our detective hats, but after some searching around, I spied the small ring box cleverly hidden in the Indyra store.  Although it took a bit of effort (and maybe a little help from a certain someone’s talented nose), the prize within the hunt box made my time invested well worthwhile.  Jessa, Indyra’s lovely Tie the Knot Hunt gift, is a strappy, cream-colored dress with a gold brocade bodice and an airy, glistening skirt.  It’s so feminine and light – just perfect for an evening out.  The present comes with standard-sized fitmesh for classic avatars as well as appliers for mesh bodies.  This free, wedding-themed hunt runs until October 15th, so you still have time to head over to Indyra and do some sleuthing of your own.  I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

I accessorized with Fabria, a delicate platinum necklace and earring set from Rebel Hope Designs.  Nena Mesh High Heels from ILLI, which I found on The Marketplace for only 99L, completed my look.  I know this is a bit above 75 Lindens, but these simple slink heels come with a HUD that allows for endless color variations, so one pair is like having a closet full of heels for a small investment.

Ripley and I are off in search of more Fabulous Finds for you.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping!

Oh My Stars!

Oh My Stars! 1

It’s 25L Tuesday! And If you stop by Lua’s today you can pick up the Alma dress (which in my opinion is a STUNNING gown in one of three colors — black, red or purple). This gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes for a terrific fit, is strapless, and has a mermaid style skirt that is just delectable. This is one to definitely add to your inventory! And for a mere 25L, why not pick up all three colors? I’m modeling it for you in black, today.

Oh My Stars! 2

To add a touch of class, I picked up the FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from Stars! which is this lovely jewelry set called Fleur. This EXCLUSIVE Gift set includes the pretty pearl and red gem-ed necklace, earrings, and two bracelets. Just find the little red t-shirt and you are all set.

If you are an avid photographer and noticed my fantastic poses, you should stop by Belle Epoque today as well. This lovely creator is offering two pose packs for the 25L Tuesday special. I’m showing you two poses out of the “What You Do To Me” pose pack, but there is another Pose Pack up for 25L that is equally lovely.

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Wandering thru

Wandering thru

I am just wandering thru to share a few treats today.

The Jack or Jill hunt (JOJ) is underway and runs til Feb 29th. There are 2 paths to follow Jack which is for the Guys and Jill which is for the Gals. Tho I will say I found some things in the Jack hunt that work for us Gals too so have a look at both paths. All the prizes are FREE. You can see all the pics here and the hints here. The nice thing is the pics go in order with the hint list. So the 1st pic goes with the 1st hint and so on. Makes it easy to pick and choose the items you want.

I made my stop at MOoH and used the hint “Cornered by the drapes” to find the pretty softly colored fitmesh dress I have on today. It has the feel of a watercolor print don’t you think. Included are sizes for system layers, Belleza, Maitreya and Slink all for FREE.

Wandering thru

The colors in the dress also show off my new FREE Amour skin from WOW which is the Feb group gift. Pretty pink lips and a touch of pink eye shadow sets this skin off. You not only get the lovely milk tone I am wearing but 4 other tones as well with/without cleavage. To make this gift even more generous and worth the group join fee of 400L you also get the omega appliers in all 5 tones.

Quench your thirst

Quench your thirst

I just couldn’t resist grabbing a few more of those FREE drinks over at the PurpleMoon Cherry Drink Hunt.

My top is drink #5 and my pants are #6. Both are FREE just wander around the PurpleMoon garden area collecting the drinks. No clues but this hunt is designed to be pretty easy so you won’t need any. The drinks aren’t hidden.

My Anika top is mesh and included 2 versions a solid and a sheer version which you wear an included system layer bra with. I was daring and used the sheer version. My Heather trousers are also mesh and come with the belt attached. These pants are rather long and didn’t work well with my flat feet and I am not sure how well they would work with mid ones either. They look best with high feet and if you want your shoes to peak out you probably have to use a stacked shoe. I actually have heals on and most times you can’t see them. Both pieces have a lovely shimmer and of course can be worn separately.

The PurpleMoon Cherry Drink hunt runs til the 28th so you don’t have to rush but why wait either!

My look today:

Bang Bang, She’s an American Gothic

People living deeply have no fear of death. — Anais Nin

I started out on the Watercolors in the Rain Hunt where all the hunt gifts were FREE and found the “Eye of Delusion” necklace below (the main center eye actually moves within the pendant) and knew I had to put together a look. It stirred something within me. A bit of the old goth child, perhaps… who grew up writing dark poetry. If you live deeply the idea is that you see the world in such a way that you understand things and do not need to fear death. Perhaps this Eye will give you more insight… personally I liked the look either way!

Beauty is in the Holder of the Eye 1

I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.  — Winston Churchill

My next stop was the Fantasy Collective. Good ol’ Winston Churchill couldn’t have done better as far as preparation. Be sure join the group FREE and collect your Fantasy Collective Birthday gifts while there (hurry the event won’t last forever). I stopped by the Valentine E. Booth and nabbed this fabulous FREE Bang Bang Bullet Bracelet in Black. The resizer script makes it versatile enough to wear as I did… or as an armlet, headband, garter and more!

Though there were a ton of great goodies I am only showcasing a couple here for you. The other item I picked up for my dark and moody Gothic look this Sunday was American Beauty‘s Black Bralet Top. Again, a FREE gift at the Fantasy Collective and better yet, mesh in all the standard sizes.

Beauty is in the Holder of the Eye 2

My last stop was at Corvus. Long known for Gothic and vampire wear, I knew the store would not let me down for finishing off my morbid tastes this week. I managed to nab this caustically classic Black Combat Shorts for only 60L and they are mesh in all the standard sizes. A fabulous finale to round out my outfit.

See you on the flip side!

Still Time to Get to Know You This Fall

There is still some fall left in the air, with two days of November left to celebrate before we march into those cold December days. Autumn has always been my favorite season. Sure winter is lovely, but you just can’t beat fall colors in my mind!

Getting to Know You This Fall 1

I wanted to share a few special gifts with you to round out my November Sunday posts. Last Sunday I showed you a spectacular FREE throne by Daffy’s GadgetMania in my post HERE and I mentioned that it was one of three gifts in their offerings for the Get to Know Us Hunt. The Hunt ends November 30th, so it’s not to late to enjoy this fabulous little hunt, but you will want to hurry!

This week I wanted to show you Daffy’s GadgetMania‘s softer side! So I set my pictures inside their Royal Garden Park, which is another of the three FREE hunt gifts. Just as a quick reminder… if haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, skip this store on your hunt stops. The hunt to get the gift is a series of clues and steps that can be a bit overwhelming if these types of visuals are more than you can handle.

Also pictured above is the November gift from Shoenique Designs. It is completely FREE with your group tag and the group is FREE to join. Considering that the gift is set along an entire wall of other FREE gifts, you won’t want to pass up this lovely fall wrap style dress! It comes in fitmesh and is perfect for a lady’s day in the park!

Getting to Know You This Fall 2

The Get to Know Us Hunt was small but cozy. It only has ten stops, but each one is really worth it. I also dropped by AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS to pick up their offering in the Hunt. They put out one box which contained two gifts. Above, Astrid is sporting the Roll Neck Dress 23, which is great for those cool autumn evenings in the park. The other prize is equally gorgeous! You’ll want to grab this FREE goodie bag from this great creator!

Getting to Know You This Fall 3

I wanted to round out my fall look with a reminder that spring would be back… and I wasn’t done with my hunting either. Gachapon! had just the thing to chase away my impending winter blues with their gift for The Get to Know Us Hunt in the form of Lucky Lady Bug Rings! Once you find the FREE hunt gift you’ll be lucky enough to discover that there are nine rings in the box in nine different colors, though I am only showing you the black and the white in the picture above.

Happy fall and happy hunting!

Cocoa Island Violets With A Twist

Cocoa Island Violets with a Twist [1]

Neville Bell: Oh no, you can’t take my photograph.
Sue Charlton: Oh, I’m sorry, you believe it will take your spirit away.
Neville Bell: No, you got lens-cap on it.
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

So I went a little crocodile Dundee this week (as you can see) but it was well worth my while and I think I would make even Sue Charlton proud! The Twisted Hunt is not quite over yet, though you’ll need to hurry to get any of the last minute gifts you want. You’ve got until Oct 19th, to finish this wicked hunt for cubes. My dress today is {MOEKO} Elegantly Alternative’s FREE offering for the Twisted Hunt Gift and well worth the difficult walkabout through the jungle of cubes.

This great gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as a lovely (optional) mesh glittery overlay which I couldn’t pass up wearing. After all… even down under, Sue Charlton would not have!

Cocoa Island Violets with a Twist [2]

Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: If I give my heart to you…
[pause]
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: Then I’ll have none and you’ll have two…
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

And this gorgeous matching jewelry and hat from Lazuri just stole *my* heart! So, I topped off my look with the latest round of FREE offerings from Lazuri which are just stunning to behold. The Cocoa Island Violets jewelry and hat are not to be missed.

If you are not in the group already, the invite will set you back 250L, but the regular gifts make it worthwhile, and even just for this one time, you’re going to get two different necklace styles, two different bracelet styles, two different earring styles, two different ring styles, and the hat. All are resizable and all have a color change Hud with different shades of violet, lavender, indigo, purple, etc.!

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!
