The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways

The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways
It may be minus a billion outside, but he and I couldn’t be more oblivious to it!

Frosted Snowflakes

At Sweet Intoxication you can hunt down a snowflake icon for The Frosting Hunt 2 this month (ends on January 31st) and gain yourself the matching outfits you see Carson and I wearing tonight.  There are two hunt icons hidden priced at 1L each, one pink for the ladies and one blue for the men.  You’ll find them both in the same spot, but make sure you pick up the right colour for your gender or you’ll be spending 1L you don’t need to!

For Her

The prize for her is a very shimmery long formal gown in ice blue called “Butterfly Gown”.  My favourite feature of this gown is the detailed butterfly at the back.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

For Him

He will receive the handsome shirt and vest combo called “Ethan Shirt” in a matching shade of blue.  This item could even be dressed down with a pair of jeans and worn any time!

Sizes Included:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

Setting A Formal Winter Scene

No need to fight the lag for a romantic night of dancing!  Simply head to The Second Life Marketplace and pick up Emma’s Winter Ballroom Skybox by Emma’s @ Blue Moose!  I took this photo inside the beautiful skybox and this is just one little corner.  There is a chandelier in the center that you can turn on and off, and it is actually 20 X 20, so you’ll have plenty of dancing room.  Rez a little snow and some sparkle lights and you’ll be set!  Don’t even worry about the prims… it has a land impact of 4!  The price?  FREE!

Warm by the Fire

18-01-11

When it’s too cold to go out…

When it’s cold out, there is no place I’d rather be than snuggled up in warm pajamas with someone special. With a warm fire, it doesn’t matter how you look, but the company you are with. While out hunting the Depths of Winter Hunt, we came across matching his and her pajamas for just 1L each.  Stop by REA and you too can find the Janice and Jeff Blue Stripe Jammies. Each style comes in classic mesh sizes XS-XL. There are no cold feet playing footies in these as they both have footies to keep your tootsies warm. The Depths of Winter Hunt continues until the end of the month.

Get entangled…

Our pose today is a dollarbie find from entangled poses.  The Aden and Caris pose is one of the many 1L poses you can pick. Don’t forget to check out the model pose sets for just 1L each as well.

Merry Christmas Darling

Trimming The Tree

Good morning Fabulouses!  With just two weeks before the big day (Christmas, that is!) we thought we had better get a jump on the decorating.  He thought we could skip the tree this year (I think because he didn’t want to dig it out of the garage rafters), but there was NO way I was going for that!  I told him if we were skipping the tree this year, we were also skipping the Christmas cookies I always make.  He went right out and got it!  I would keep the tree up all year if I could.  It’s sad that those special ornaments I have collected over the years are only enjoyed a few weeks out of the year.

Normally when we do blog posts together, we usually just use one photo, but this time we had two totally different views and lighting this time, so I wanted to include them both because they show off different angles of the matchy-matchy sweaters we wanted to tell you about today.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Until the end of the month, Emberotics is participating in the Baby, It’s Cold Outside Hunt and these His & Her’s Sweaters are the prize you can claim for 1L after you locate the hidden hunt icon… OR you can save yourself the hunt and just buy them for 25L from the object near the hunt sign. Carson picked these up, and transferred the ladies sweater to me (TY Carson!) – so this is giftable too!

Jenny Don’t Be Hasty

JTHMooh
Hey there Fabulouses! Yesterday Kathryn showed you a super cute top that is just 1L for The Jerky Turkey Hunt [HERE], and I did a little orange feather (that’s the hunt icon… an orange feather!) hunting myself, and found that MOoH! is also participating in TJTH and has a really nice prize too.

What Will You Get For 1L?

Jenny is the prize you’ll have once you locate the orange feather at the MOoH! store.  It’s actually considered a dress, but it’s short enough that if you prefer it as a top with a cute pair of jeans like I do, you totally can!  It comes with a texture change HUD as well so you can change the blouse and frock to a few different colours to switch up your look according to your personal taste.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

Come Into My Parlor

Black Widow_001

Take a seat in my parlor dear… never mind the chair. It won’t bite… though I might…

A black widow… in several sizes

Isn’t this Black Widow chair adorable?! And it’s perfect for Halloween! Or any Gothic theme! Better yet it was only 1L as part of the Bump in the Night Hunt and once you find the crow at Little to Large (or you can pay 25L at the sign if you don’t want to hunt) you get several size chairs as a bonus! You’ll get the chair for full size avatars as shown, petite avatars and tinies as well! How cool is that!

It’s also only 2 prim and has several very nice sitting animations.

The group is 250L to join, but the creator very generously puts out a new hairstyle (with a fatpack of colors) every single month for us gift hunters to pick up. You can count on a new hairstyle every month!

Some lingerie!

I found some lingerie (and a wall of past group gifts) at a new-to-me store called Bijou. This sexy black and red lingerie is perfect for the Halloween holiday… and for afterward too. The group is free to join, making the gift free too! Best yet, it accommodates all the popular mesh bodies!

Ghost_001

If you’re gearing up for Halloween and looking for the perfect costume… or maybe if you’re just looking to have some spooky fun… I have the perfect giftie for you! It will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Bump in the Night Hunt! You hunt down the black crow, pay 1L (or if you don’t feel like hunting you can pay 25L at the hunt sign instead) and you get the prize!

This Scary Bedsheet Ghost avatar is the current hunt prize for the Bump in the Night Hunt at Epicine. It comes with the complete Avatar. It’s a little on the bright side in some windlight settings, but I found that it was perfect on the midnight setting and darker windlights, and most of the haunted sims are set to those.

Happy h(a)unting!

A garden in my backyard!

Save me a flower_001

I planted a little garden in my backyard! Complete with a trellis and flowers and it has a pretty stained glass finish! Better yet, it’s a free gift that I’m going to tell you about along with my outfit!

Get my dress!

I picked up my dress at Monomania when I stopped by there to check out the current gifts. There are many gifts currently at the main-store, including the store’s group gifts as well as gifts associated with other groups such as our very own FabFree group as well as this dress I picked up, which is a Third Life Group Gift. The Third Life group costs just 10L to join and gets you gifts at many stores across the grid… like this pretty pink dress called “Candy” at Monomania!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I wandered back to Lindy Modern & Retro after having stopped by the other day. Discovering all those 1L shoe hunts had me excited, and I was sure I could find a pair of shoes to match my new dress. I was right! The pretty pink pair of shoes you see in my picture includes fits for classic, Maitreya and Slink feet and are only 1L as part of the Summer Diaries Hunt. Pick them up at the Lindy Modern & Retro Shoe Store before the end of the month!

Planting flowers.

Finally… my garden centerpiece! This beautiful garden trellis by Crys Secret Garden is a free gift exclusive for FabFree group members. As always, your FabFree group is free to join. Don your FabFree tag and teleport to Crys Secret Garden to pick up this pretty trellis for your back (or front) yard. It weighs in at only 8 prim and includes many beautiful flowery details!

Sunrise

Spotlight_001

I stopped for coffee and was writing in my journal when the wind storm blew up off the ocean and disturbed my papers. I had to set everything down and gather it all up again. Thankfully there was plenty of stuff nearby (pots, candles, a plate of cinnamon buns) to act as paperweights… but I took a moment to enjoy the sunrise glowing on the horizon before snapping a picture to share my hunt finds with you.

Dressed for success.

I’m often inspired by locations and clothing in second life. The visuals give me pause and take my breath away. I stumbled across the Summer Diaries Hunt and found several beautiful items, but one of my favorites was this Lolita Micro Dress by Soul Designs. It comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 colors including gold (shown), teal, red, navy, purple, and black.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A sweet ocean surprise…

I received a notecard from Chop Zuey yesterday, letting me know that the creator was participating in the Flawless Sim Seashell Hunt. For just 1L I could go to the Designer Showcase, hunt down the seashell there, and come away with some pretty jewelry. I wasted no time! In the picture you can see the matching necklace and earrings, but the set also comes with two beautiful anklets that go with the set as well!

Close Your Eyes And Float

EzmeraldasSummerLovinHunt1LSILENCE!

Can you think of anything more relaxing that silently floating in the clear blue sea?  I suppose there are a few things that could be “up there”, but for me, not much tops it.  The sun warms your skin and the water drowns out all of your worries and cares.  The water pretty much forces you to be at peace, because the second you tense up, it sucks you under like it’s trying to teach you a lesson.

Get your own gold bikini!

I am very happily floating in my new Beach Bikini that I picked up for just 1L at Ezmeralda’s for the Summer Lovin Hunt.  This Bikini comes with system layers and an omega applier as well as the bows with beads which add on at the hips, back and center of the chest.  Until the end of June, you can find the hidden beach ball hunt icon in the store and purchase it for 1L.

This Wild Hair…

My hairstyle is by Tableau Vivant Cocomuel and is one of the styles available at The Arcade Gacha for just 75L per play.  The cool thing about these unique hairstyles that are awesome for photography is that they come with bento poses!

Happy hunting… and floating!
