On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

What’s in a cemetery?

Graveyard Presence_001

“What could you possibly hope to find in a cemetery?” The women said. “The dead tell no secrets and the living seldom come to visit them.”
― Felix Alexander, The Last Valentine

Many of my characters have roleplayed in cemeteries for various reasons. There is mystery and intrigue there. There is always a story to be had in a cemetery! Or someone’s story at least. When I put this roleplay outfit together for you, I immediately though… cemetery! And went to take a picture. But enough of the roleplay memories and onto the gifts!

Stop by for a treat!

Bluemoon Enterprise has out a great free roleplay outfit for February. Be sure to pick it up before the month is out. You’ll need the free to join Bluemoon group tag to pick it up. This Celtic Breeze outfit includes the pants, a skirt, the bracers, the top and the hood. The hood has a feature that allows you to wear it either up or down (I choose to wear the hood down) and the outfit comes in a single fitmesh size that I had no trouble making fit my Maitreya body.

Bluemoon Enterprise is housed inside of The White Armory. When you arrive at the entrance, go inside and then head to the Bluemoon store inside the large main-store building of The White Armory. You’ll find the Celtic Breeze gift inside of the smaller Bluemoon Building.

Another YM Gift

I showed you a group gift from the YM Shop in my post [Here] but there were so many on the wall that I picked up more than one. Among the free gifts I picked up with my free group join were the Beka boots. I discovered that these boots, although certainly suitable for modern wear, had a definite roleplay feel, and paired with my roleplay outfit from Bluemoon just perfectly.

  • These boots include a color change hud to change 4 different parts of the boots with 46 color options for each as well as 4 metal options for the rivets.
  • Sizes include: Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, Mesh XXS – L

I hope you enjoy these gifts and happy roleplaying!

Wishin’ and Hopin’

Wishin' and Hopin'

Hey there Fab Free!  I’m dreaming of flying away, while wishing for a rest and a dash of magic today.  I’ve got these lanterns carrying my wishes up to the heavens, so fingers crossed that it works!

Dressed in Dreams

I heard somewhere that in order for dreams to come true, you need to dress to impress (I’ve never actually heard that, but I’m just going to make stuff up because why not!).  So I’m dressing in my dreams today, by wearing this lovely silky dress by Safira.  It comes in several appealing shades, including Berry, Black and Rose.  I went with “Sky” because I’m going with the wishes floating upwards theme (ehehe).  You can grab this pretty dress by joining the Safira group for 99L.  There are a whole bunch of other gifts on the wall there, so it’s well worth it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

High Heels Bringing me Closer to Heaven

FurtaCor have some new lucky chairs outside their store!  There are loads of goodies packed in them, and after hanging around for just a little bit, my letter came up and I hopped on the chair.  If you know FurtaCor at all, you know that they provide you with enormous HUDs filled with texture options coming out the wazoo.  I went for the flowery swirly blue to match my dress, but there are loads to choose from!  They come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  In order to get these shoes, join the FurtaCor group for 1L, and camp out for a bit.  There are a bunch of gifts inside for you too! Here’s a closeup for ya:

Anyone else out there wishing for some magic?

A good book.

Library_001

I love a good book… and old libraries are a favorite haunt of mine. I’m here at the library at Lorrey checking out the stacks of books to see what I can find.

Heading to the Library.

Before I headed to the shelves I spent a little time with my friend who always has his eye on the ball for a good deal. He really liked the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and clued me in to this fantastic shirt by Shae’s Designs. It’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time, and I love the detailing of the rivets and the chain ties at the neckline. It comes in several sizes too!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Another Dirty Little Secret…

Another dirty little secret along the Hunt are my shoes! Yes, my friend was at it again, and pointed out this great pair of shoes by Barbed Wire Kisses. These shoes come with metal details and buckles as well and will fit Maitreya, Slink, or Belleza feet and once you find the little black bag they are yours for only 1L.

Finally…

Finally! I found the book I was looking for! It’s the Fabulously Free Tome of secrets! I knew it was here somewhere! Better yet, this Tome is a FabFree Group gift from Deadly Nightshade! Like all FabFree group gifts, it is completely free with your FabFree group tag. Just stop by the Deadly Nightshade store to pick it up. In your gift package, you’ll get the Tome in a handheld version that includes a holding pose and you’ll also get a rezzable decoration version of the book. What a perfect gift for the FabFree lover!

I Can Only Be Me

I Can Only Be Me

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I have a penchant for outfits that are a bit… different. You can often find me wearing something slightly unique in SL, whether that’s a set of cat ears, long pastel hair, or perhaps a shiny purple bodysuit – or all of those at once!  I love expressing my wild side in SL, because events in RL that call for a set of heels and a fur stole are few and far between!

Midnight Magic

I found my unique free look today at rOrO The creator, Rowan Carroll has put out a fabulous bodysuit and matching fur stole on the midnight madness board.  I adore the lavender shade, the sheerness of the fabric in all the right places,  and how plush the stole looks.  Definitely fits in with my unique SL style!  You can grab it too by slapping (or caressing fondly, your choice…) the midnight madness board and keeping those fingers crossed. Even better, grab a few friends and get them all to click for better chances!  You only need 10 people to click and it’s all yours!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • eBody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Small and Large AV versions

Building an Empire

After a few quiet months, Empire have updated their group gifts!  Empire puts out a new group gift every second month, and the November and January gifts are now available!  I’ve chosen to show you the gorgeous Altheda heels, that have a nice bow on the toes that kinda reminds me of a little bat.  Love it!  You can grab them too by joining the Empire group, which at this time costs 500L to join.  There are a slew of old gifts on the wall which make the join fee more than worth it!  Here’s a closeup for you!

I Can Only Be Me 2

I say be yourself, nobody else is better qualified!

If you run inside the Applique Chic booth at the event, you’ll find a variety of nice clothing. In order to demo their sexy fetish tops, they have out a very nice gift… these Kinky t-shirts that come in a his and hers version. You can pick up the box for just 1L and if your with a date he can get his for the same price!

Kickers.

I was kicking around the event stores at The Point and stopped by Look@Me and feel in love with one of several 1L gifts they had setting out. I grabbed their In-Style January Gift heels for just 1L and put them on to go with my mood. They come in black with gold accents and a fantastic heel and will fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet!

A Hot Fuss

Stay Warm_002

I had stopped by Hot Fuss as part of the Womenstuff Hunt and picked up their hunt prize, but while I was there, I also checked out the group gifts and was pleased to discover some goodies that I didn’t want to pass up.

Gifts Galore!

Hot Fuss has a wall of gifts for their free to join group, as well as gifts for other common Second Life groups. I picked up the free “Jane” skirt which you can get with your Hot Fuss group tag. It comes in all the usual body sizes.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

While I was at Hot Fuss, I also noticed that I could get a free pair of heels, as they had out an SL frees & Offers group gift. I quickly donned my free group tag and picked up the free Amiina heels. These come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet.

Keeping it warm.

I was then back on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, but this time I stopped by Winterwood Designs and picked up the Skullz Puffy Jacket. This cute free jacket (once you find the little red t-shirt) comes in several versions. You can wear it with or without the t-shirt, the t-shirt comes in three colors, and the jacket comes in two colors… so you have an opportunity for lots of variety. I’ve included a vendor advertisement below to show off this great gift!

Jacket sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

All the Sweets

Snapshot_001

I’m still gleefully unpacking gifts from the Womenstuff Hunt. I feel like I’ve made away like a bandit this month will all the goodies! And I’ve put together a look for you with three of the gifts I found that I really like!

All the sweets…

My sweet (and exclusive) dress if from Robot dolly. It’s yours if you stop by their main-store and hunt down that little red t-shirt and buy it for 1L and it’s yours! This cutie comes in lots of mesh sizes to fit your needs.

Mesh sizes included:

  • Classic XXS – L + alpha layer
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Shoes too!

I also stopped by SoHoe Shoes where I grabbed the Kate heels as part of the Womenstuff Hunt, hunting down that little red t-shirt and buying it for 0L and discovered that they matched my cute new mini dress just perfectly. These come in fits for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet and are cute as a button in pink and white.

Snapshot_002

One more stop!

I teleported over to Hot Fuss for just one more stop for the day and was rewarded with their cute free and exclusive gift for the Womenstuff hunt. I love this necklace! It has a sort of mystical boho feel with its lavender eye and silver diamond eyelashes. And for the price of free you can’t beat the deal! Pick this gift up to wear!

Silver Linings

Snow White_001

This last week has been a tough one in real life for me but today I took some time to do some meditating and looked for silver linings in the dark clouds that I felt certain were hanging over my head. I think it helps to actively look for good things when days get rough. This silver lined dress from Alter reminded me of my “silver lining thinking” today and is their free POE hunt gift. But you don’t just get the dress…

Accessories included:

  • Silver shoes (made to fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza feet)
  • A bracelet
  • And two rings to fit bento hands in the gift box as well!

The dress comes in all the popular body sizes sure to fit your needs:

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

Snow White_003

Wearing ink lately…

I’ve worn tattoos in two other posts {here} and {here} and when I saw this gorgeous Broken Heart tattoo from Identity as part of the Women Only Hunt (yes my hunting buddy pointed it out) I couldn’t help myself… and who can pass up free? Now I have three free tattoos for this month tucked away in my inventory! This one comes in fresh or faded (faded shown) and you get system layers, appliers for TMP, Omega, Belleza, Wowmeh, and Maitreya.

Sway a little!

If you’re digging my updo you need to hurry, as it may be gone by midnight tonight (Friday). It’s a Fifty Linden Friday special at Exile. You can get it in either naturals with a hud of natural colors, or a set of pastels, your choice for only 50L each. I picked the naturals hud as it had my usual choice of silver (there’s also a pretty blonde, brown, and red course!). This updo includes both a regular rigged and a bento rigged in the box so you can see your hair sway in the wind!

Last but not least…

I don’t have a super duper close up of my necklace but if you click the lower picture and zoom in on flickr you can see the beautiful free Snowgirl Necklace by Slipper Originals. It is their free Women Only Hunt gift. It has a little snowman and a snowflake charm on a metal cord and it comes with a texture change hud with ten metal choices. That’s a lot of versatility! Plus I love the dainty little charms that make it so pretty 🙂
