How Stella Got Her Groove Back

Stella

By Visiting The Wash Cart Sale, of Course!

That’s right, I finally got myself over to The Wash Cart Sale, and let me just say, “Wow!”

As the other FabFree bloggers have mentioned, there some great 10L deals – and even some amazing 50L deals. And since The Wash is celebrating its 10th Anniversary of Cart Sales, there are free gifts at nearly every cart! 😮

Grand Finale

I was super excited to open the generous cart sale gift from Finale Couture. Not only do you get this super sexy dress, but you also get the matching heels and choker.

The Stella – Grey dress comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. It works for mesh bodies, as well – I’m wearing it on my Maitreya body, but since the dress runs a bit small, I had to wear a size larger than I normally do.

The shoes are sized for Slink high feet. The choker comes with a resizer built in so it fits any size. Just click to access the blue menu.

Fancy My Decor?

Many of the decor items you see here are free group gifts from Fancy Decor. You can pick up the Leaning Art, Birch Candles, Inlaid Box, and Potted Succulent — and a whole lot more! — just by joining the Fancy Decor in-world group for 250L. There are so many gifts out right now that you could furnish an entire room. Plus, a new gift is set out each month!

Dutchie Furniture also has some interesting gifts set out at the landing point. One of them is the little pile of coins that you see here, but there are several others, including an empty box and a bag of trash. All are completely free, and you don’t have to join a group.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 🙂

A Little “HY” on a Coffee House!

Blogging soon!

Those of you who know me on Facebook have probably figured out that I’m a pretty serious coffee enthusiast. In fact, there are some days when I think the only reason I get out of bed in the morning is to have coffee! Anyway, when I learned that ++HY’s++ was giving away this fabulous coffee house as a gift for their 2nd Anniversary Hunt, I just knew I had to have it. I’ve always wanted to have a little store or hangout in SL, and since I don’t build or make things, a coffee house is perfect! This sweet little shop can be YOURS too once you find the birdhouse (which is a cute gift in itself). You only have until February 9th though, so don’t delay!

Blogging soon!

I really can’t wait to get started decorating! I hated to show you an empty build, but I knew I wouldn’t get finished in time for you to get the gift. Plus, when you land at ++HY’s++, you can visit a decorated sample, if you want to see what it looks like full of stuffs. Before I knew the build would be a hunt gift, I shot these pictures of Gavin at the sample at ++HY’s++.

Blogging soon!

Another view of the interior. I really love the detail in this build. The counter even raises up and down so you can get behind it to serve your customers. 🙂

Blogging soon!

The fireplace here is a past hunt gift from DIGS, and is not included. I just think a building is bare without a fireplace, so I dropped this one in. Oh! I forgot to tell you that the awnings on the front porch are texture-change; 5 different textures are included.

Blogging soon!

What am I wearing? Well, the “caffeinated raccoon” t-shirt is a free gift for all from PRISM Designs, and my ripped tights are a free gift from {Tilly} on the Marketplace. I really love these studded shoes, which are a subscriber gift from *Cashmere&Keane*; they come in both men’s and women’s sizes with a sock or no-sock option. And my comic-covered bag is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Eclectic Stars; two designs are included in the box.

So, there you have it. Nessie and I are going to be busy making plans to decorate our new coffee house! 😀

The Four Walls Hunt!

How I didnt know about this hunt is beyond me considering I am obsessed with furnishings in SL.. but the Four Walls Hunt is the perfect place to get some Christmassy and Wintery themed furnishings to decorate your home with.

Now, unfortunately Im so late in getting this written about, you only have until the 15th to snap up these items, which only leaves a few days. I’ve been working my little socks off to get this up as soon as I could! Thankfully though its a short hunt so you should have plenty of time to get what you want.

Each item is L$20 to purchase and you are searching for a crate of baubles which is shown in the picture below. The hunt is relatively quick and the prizes are quite easy to find!

First, you do NOT get gifts along the way…. but find more parts of the storyline as you move forward to the haunting conclusion of this tale….

>>BE WARNED  —- This Hunt is not for the Faint of Heart!<<

“How to start this wild ride?”  Well, you head over to MAD CITY, and look for the newspaper dispenser,


These sell the “HUD” you will need to wear during this hunt.  The HUD sells for L$150, but wait till you see all the gifties I got from doing the whole thing… TOTALLY worth so much more, and if you like solving mysteries and following clues, This hunt IS for you!!

So grab those scooby snacks, Hop in the Mystery Machine and go get yours!!  Oh, little hint… it will be “closed” when you buy it… Make sure to read Local chat so you know how to get the HUD to open 😉

Soooo … what are the rewards for spending the time doing this?

It Was A Cold Winter Night… Hunt

Snapshot_007 It may have been a beautiful day yesterday, but it was a cold winter night, a night perfect for staying inside, logging into SL, and doing a little hunting!  I picked up several of the Cold Winter Nights Hunt prizes and put together a little hideaway for my sky which I will tell you about in just a moment, but first, I’d like to give you a little info on the hunt itself!

Fabulously Free in SL - SL Hunts Page The Cold Winter Nights Hunt runs until February 15th, includes 54 stops and each of the prizes are 10L. You can visit their official blog for a list of slurls including prize previews, so you don’t have to hunt until you are sure you want to pick up that prize, which I sure appreciate when you do have to pay a little for them.  I am personally really impressed with the quality of these prizes, and found them to be worth every little linden spent.  The icon you are searching for is a blue snowflake.

OFFICIAL COLD WINTER NIGHTS HUNT BLOG – http://coldwinternightshunt.wordpress.com/

PRIZE PREVIEW – http://coldwinternightshunt.wordpress.com/stores/

I am quite sure between Serena and I, we will be covering a lot of the prizes in this hunt… because it’s THAT GOOD, but here is a little taste to get you started!

At Vespertine, after you have located the hidden snowflake (watch out for that Cola Bear!) and pick it up for 10L, you will have the Frostwoods Skybox (mesh / 7 prims) in both bright and darker versions.  It includes the “I Live On The Moon Lamp” too.

Snapshot_004

Inside the skybox you will see that I have used the Frosted Mirrors from Wayward Muse, The Trompe Loeil Shelf With Framed Imagine Quotes, and the Vesta Fireplace & Rug Set in Cream from Digs.  The Pillow has comfy male, female and unisex poses in a menu.  All of these furnishings are also hunt gifts!
Snapshot_002

The outfit I am wearing is called Out Of Time, and is the prize that SAKIDE is offering, including the mesh skirt and blouse with the broach.  This blouse comes in a regular and a Lola’s version.
Snapshot_003

My skin can be found after locating the snowflake icon at Amacci.  This beauty is called Nuiko and comes with a regular and cold nose version of the skin, as well as cleavage layers and eyebrow shapes.

These sparkling earrings are not a part of the Cold Winter Nights Hunt, but can be found as  a free gift at Virtual Impressions.  The Samantha Earrings and also come with a necklace (which was interfering with my top – will show it with another outfit lol).  They are in a big box in the center of the store on the floor, priced at 0L.
