Took a stroll through the MIIX Event.  If you haven’t been there yet, it is their one year anniversary and it is chock full of free (a couple fall in the *nearly* free category) gifties for the grabbing!  I found this super cute outfit from Impacts there.  It comes with a HUD that gives you10 textures for the shorts and 14 texture choices for the top.  It fits:

  • Classic
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Just join the event group (free to join!) and scoop up the free gifts!

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

Mardi Gras Gift Madness

There is a free hunt at Wonderland Beach in celebration of Mardi Gras– but you have to hurry, the hunt ends on the 17th.  Luckily, the gifts for the Love and Camouflage Hunt are pretty easy to find.  All you have to do is look for the Mardi Gras mask in the shops on the sim to find your gifts.  I found this great cami dress from TrendZy Apparel with a star pattern.  It also came with a pair of heels.  I am not wearing them because I wanted to show off these cute ankle boots I found on the hunt from Grumble.  I loved the rainbow hearts– which happened to match well with another hunt gift, the bangle bracelets from SugarBaker.

As I mentioned earlier, this terrific hunt ends on February 17th.  So you will have to hurry to snatch up these great gifts.

Heart Attack and Vine

Heart Attack and Vine
February is approaching and Valentines (and Anti-Valentines) themed hunts are just around the corner.  I’ve been to a few different hunts on Windstruck over the past few months and I’ve always been impressed by how pretty the sim is and how nicely the hunts are set up. The Lost Hearts Hunt is no different.  The terrific free hunt gifts range from clothing to home decor.  Most of the clothing items are either unisex or there are corresponding male and female avatar outfits hidden separately.  The hearts are in plain sight, so no need to break out your magnifying glass and search in hard to see places.  I found plenty of great free gifts on the hunt, but my favorite had to be the Gothic Vine Gown.  It is a gorgeous strapless dress with a slit on the side.

The Lost Hearts Hunt runs until February 20th, so check out these wonderful gifts before the hunt comes to an end.

A Lazy Sunday

A Lazy Sunday
A calm, relaxing Sunday is the perfect time to take a break and unwind.  Right now I am enjoying a nice up of tea (and my avatar enjoys her coffee) while I unpack my latest SL treasures.  I went to the 2Much Event and found some lovely free gifts.  I really likes this Benita dress Auralia’s booth.  The bright, yellow color is very cheery and I loved the embroidered design.  To get the dress, just join the 2Much Events free group and click the gift box.  Be sure to take a look around the event as there are plenty of lovely items for sale– and of course, more free gift.s 😉

But don’t wait too long, the 2Much Event is ending on Jan 16th.  You don’t want to miss getting this cute dress for your own.

Mermaid State of Mind

Mermaid State of Mind<
Now that the holidays are over, it is nice to take breather and just relax.  I took a nice, evening stroll on the beach this evening in the new dress I found at Drunken Elf Fest. The event is running until January 10th, with plenty of free gifts to enjoy in 2021.  I found this great great Ariel dress by Viki under the tree and there are more gifts at the designers’ stalls.  The dress has a beautiful mermaid scale texture and comes with a HUD that allows you to choose from a selection of ombre color patterns.  I wore it on the beach, but it is elegant enough to be worn to a formal event.

Don’t delay to check out these free gifts.  Drunken Elf Fest will be over before you know it

New Years in Okinawa

New Years in Okinawa
With the Christmas season winding down, all of Secondlife is getting ready for the New Year’s Festivities.  If you are lucky, you may catch the tail end of some nice events before they close for the season.  Such as the Okinawa Festival, which currently has two events running, one for Christmas and one for New Years, both accessible from the landing point.  The Christmas Festival will be over soon (December 29th) but the New Years Festival will continue until January 13th.

When you get to the landing point, there is a little quirk to get in.   If it looks like you are still on the landing point after choosing the teleport option, just press your escape key.  This should take you from the landing point into the actual shopping sim.  You got to love Secondlife and all it’s little quirks. 😉

The Okinawa New Years Festival was filled with many nice vendor stalls and almost all of them had a beautiful gift.  I picked up a few free accessories like this very pretty Tsubaki hair flower by Ayame Ame.  The cute little pinwheel (or Kazaguruma) blowing in the winter air is by ExiA and is also a free gift and their booth.

Hurry Quick and pick up your gifts.  January 13th will be here and gone before you know it.

Prairie Christmas

Prairie Christmas
I’m a little sad that it is the last day for most of the holiday gift hunting, but it will be nice to finally celebrate Christmas.  And of course, move on to the New Year and finally put 2020 behind us.  😉  If you have a spare moment in the holiday rush, check out The 12 Days of Christmas at the Secondlife Syndicate.  Today is the last day and there are plenty of free gifts under the tree in the center of town.  I picked up this cute Amaranthine Peasant Blouse from Eliavah there.  It came with a nice holly choker to make the outfit more festive or you can put it in your summer wardrobe and save it for warmer weather.

Another fab present under the tree were these great Vaeri Boots By Wicca Originals.  They look a little steam punk, but I though the boots complimented the flowered top very well.

Today is the last day to pick up these fabulous free gifts, so don’t delay.

Spooky Christmas Time

Spooky Christmas Time
Ready to take break from the Christmas spirit and get a little spooky?  As fun as Christmas is, I am a goth girl at heart.  So when I found out Wonderland Beach was holding a Winter fare and hunt, I couldn’t wait to go.  Their Spooktaculum hunt and sale in October was so much fun, I was sure they’d throw a great Winter event.  And I was right.  I picked up this great Winter Skulls Trist Camisk Dress for free at Coveted!’s booth.  There were many other great gifts and most were easy to find in the designer’s booth or store.  The Christmas Market runs from December 6th until January 6th, so you do not want to miss it.

I am still unpacking all the treasures from the Swank Event and stumbled on these nice boots from ADI.  If you haven’t gotten a chance to go there yet, definitely put it on your list to check out the fabulous free gifts the designers left for you under the tree.  Swank’s Winter Wonderland ends on December 31st and will be gone before you know it.

Catch me if you can, I’m the gingerbread man

Catch me if you can, I'm the gingerbread man
We had our first snowfall in New York City a few days ago.  It didn’t stay very long, but I am sure there will be more snow to come.  On chilly days such as these, it is nice to be cozy indoors.  And what better way then to spend the day hanging out with this cute little gingerbread shoulder pet (that I am promise I will not eat) From the Artist Shed.  This cutie is a free gift at the Yule Cart Sale and Hunt. I also found this great snowman tank top by The Bold Llama Co. there for free as well.  The event runs until the 31st and the gifts can be found under the tree, in the designers stalls and hidden all over the sim.  When you first enter, you can tap the sign to get a notecard of clues to make hunting a little easier.

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree

Rockin' around the Christmas Tree
It’s the time for another Swank Event which means plenty of great holiday shopping and of course, freebies.  You can find the free gifts under the large Christmas trees by the gacha machines in each of the four corners of the sim.  I don’t have nearly enough evening wear, so this beautiful Zehra Gown by Flower Dreams was a wonderful surprise.  It comes with BOM and applier base layers and a lovely flowing skirt attachment that moves along with you, like it is flowing in the breeze.  Another great free find at the Swank Event was the Peace on Earth Madeline Headpiece from Zuri.  It comes in silver with emerald stones and has a carved cameo in the center.

Stunner Originals is participating in the Christmas countdown advent and all their gifts are available for free. It is a great way to stock up on makeup and nails for the upcoming year.  In this picture, I am wearing Plenitude lipstick and Appeal eyeshadow.  The lipstick comes in BOM and with both Catwa and Omega appliers (there is also nail polish included for Maitreya).  The eyeshadow comes in BOM with Catwa, Omega and Genus appliers.  Even though all of Stunner Originals’ advent gifts are available for all 24 days, don’t delay at picking up your gifts.  When the Christmas season is over, these gifts will also be.
