Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Beached Bunny HuntGood Morning Fabulous Fans! As I reported earlier in the week, we have a bunch of new summer hunts to partake of. More are arriving every day. In fact, today marks the first day of The Beached Bunny Hunt 5… a popular well-run hunt now in it’s fifth iteration. There are 67 stops, so it may take you some time, but your inventory will get stuffed with all kinds of L$1 goodies.

Right down below you’ll find a comprehensive list of hunts running right now. You should be able to find one that’s “just right” for you. Poke the the names for more information on each hunt.

By-the-way.. FabFree and HUNT SL both have excellent pages if you’re new to hunting, or even if you’re not. There are lots of tips and tricks to be had.

Can’t satisfy my green thumb without the right outfit!

Well hello again all you beautiful FabFree readers! Is it Thursday again already? Wow, this week has just flown by. It’s been pretty hot in my neck of the Canadian woods. To beat the heat, staying out of the sun,  I thought I’d take some time to do some gardening in my new SL home that I had showed you all before. Though, naturally, I have my priorities skewed to the fashion side, so I had to put together the perfect gardening look first.

I’ll start at the top of my head, and work my way down. My super cute, straw hat is a free group gift from {amiable}, which is a new to me store that I had landed at after seeing one of their other available gifts in a picture on flickr. The group is free to join, and there are several gifts you can grab while you are there, so it’s worth the group spot. I had to include a shot of the hat from the back so you could see the cute little ribbon.

Next item of my summery outfit is the lacey Tied Top from [BLUES]. This lovely mesh shirt is a current promo for only L$1 on the Marketplace. What a deal. Underneath, I am wearing the Jean Tube Top in Pink from Krissianne’s Kloset, which is also a Marketplace find. This time, for only L$3. It is shirt layer only, but I know there are many of you out there still rocking the clothing layers like I do ;) . And, lastly, but not leastly…my ‘girly with an edge’ jean shorts. These highly detailed mesh shorts are a gift from MoDANNA for the enMESHed into Summer 2015 hunt that runs until July 15th.  What is really cool about these rose printed shorts is that you you can choose to wear them with or without the pockets hanging out of the front, as well as the studs. The pockets, and studs are both separate mesh pieces that you do not have to use if you don’t want to. However…as you can see, they are great with both. All hunt prizes are free, and the clue for this particular prize is ‘YOU’VE BEEN RICKROLLED!!’ For a full list of participants, plus their hints, head over to the enMESHed Hunts Blog.

Now…I did mention I was gardening right? Well I guess I better mention that the gorgeous potted plants, and that fun garden sign in my pictures are from {what next}, and only L$10 per set on the Marketplace. The sign is from the Serendipity Garden Planters and Sign set, and plants are from that set as well as the Boathouse Cottage Planters and Sign set. Each set come with 3 different pots, each with a different plant, and a sign. Serendipity is HERE, and Boathouse is HERE. Just because you need to decorate, does not mean you need to spend a lot for great quality :) .

Well…it’s that time again. All this gardening has me ready to go sit on that bench with a nice cool drink, admiring my handy work.

Oh, but before I go, I just wanted to wish all my fellow Canucks a happy belated Canada Day!!

OK, I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again next week! Until then, TTFN *waves*

The SL12BIG HUNT takes place all over the sims of the fair, with over 90 exhibitors participating. Yes, it’s THAT BIG! There are all kinds of free goodies to be picked up.

The SL12B Nano Hunt is a little hunt which is taking place right in the HUNT SL building at the celebration. There are 12 free prizes (one for each year). You just have to climb up and look for them.

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL here-comes-summer-full-perm-hunt-posterHappy Friday my Fabulous Friends! Summer will be officially here on Sunday… summer solstice… the longest day of the year. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway. If you live down under, then it’s mid winter. But that’s neither here nor there. There are a bunch of great hunts going on anyway, and many of them have a summer theme… or at least make a nod in that direction.

We’re starting to see more full-perm hunts, which is great if you’re a builder or a content creator. Check out the Here Comes Summer or the Keep Calm & BBQ Full Perm hunts if you like full-perm stuff.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting if you haven’t been before, and some great tips even if you’re a veteran hunter.

Check out all these hunts and find the one that’s right for you. Poking the names will lead you to more information.

See you out on the hunt!

Susy Sells Seashells

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses! I did myself a little hunting last night and found that Hapi*Rabi has an adorable mesh Susy Dress cleverly hidden inside a For Her Hunt icon.  For just 1L I was able to pick up this sweet off the shoulder, floral printed dress!  You can find this same dress in lavender inside a group lucky board (50L to join) as well if you prefer purple over pink.

It was just sheer luck that the Heart Bag that is the latest free group gift at C’est La Vie had a pink inside the texture change HUD that matched perfectly with this dress!  The C’est La Vie group is free to join.  Check out their lucky board too!

The decorative items in my photo today are all pieces from the Dust Bunny My Summer Retreat Set currently being offered at the June round of The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  I was really hoping to get that fancy house boat, but was pleased with the Daisy Shack just the same!  Maybe I’ll go back and try again …  Mowahh ahaa ha ahaaa

Enjoy your day and thanks for reading!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL welcometosummeradjpgI do believe summer is here. It’s hot hot HOT… 103F forecast for my neck of the woods today. So yes, summer is here. It’s a good time to stay inside with the air conditioning, a cold drink, and your computer screen. In other words, a good time to do some hunting.

There are plenty of hunts to go on too, and lots of themes. Steampunk… check. Beaches… check. Pajamas… check… and lot’s more to choose from.

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. So read up before you exit through your front door.

So check out the list for the hunt that’s just right for you. Point and click the names for more info on each hunt.

HUNT SL menstuffLogo-512It’s always fun when somebody tells you how much they love what you do. I was setting up our build for the SL12B Community Celebration and the area assistant who was helping me with the parcel details saw the exhibits and said “oh… I love hunts! Do you have a group?” It’s warm fuzzies like that which make my day.

There are some dang good hunts going on right now. The June hunts are in full swing. I have to get it in gear and do the Menstuff Hunt. It’s one of my favorites from previous years and the source of about half my wardrobe. No joke!

Both FabFree and HUNT SL have excellent pages if you want to get started with hunting. It’s really pretty easy. If you can walk, cam, and solve clues at the same time, you’ll be a natural. No really… it’s not that hard.

So click the names of the hunts that look interesting to you. You’ll be whisked off to more info.

See you out on the hunt!
