“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!

Aloha!

Tiki Times_001

Aloha!

I was on the Women’s Stuff Hunt trail and found this Hawaiian ensemble that I had to show you! It comes with the beautiful mesh dress (in all the standard mesh sizes and a quality alpha layer) plus the flower anklets, and a wicker bag full of flowers for you to hold (not shown).

Where to pick up your prize…

You can hunt for this dancing (or relaxing) dress and all its accessories at the Yokana Store where once you find the iconic red t-shirt this gift is yours for just 1 little Linden.

Happy Hunting!

An Easter Hunt.

Zuri is hosting an Easter Hunt through the month of April. There are 3 eggs to find and they are just 10L each (or they are free if you are a member of the Zuri Jewelry group). One egg contains the beautiful necklace you see me wearing. One contains my earrings, and one contains my bracelet (upper picture). For just 30L you can have the entire set. It’s a steal for your Easter basket!

Blowing in the wind.

I think there was a breeze in the air at the Garden of Absentia where I took my picture… or maybe it was just this beautiful free to all gift that I picked up from Exile hair. Right now if you hurry over to Exile, there is a gift out for both guys and gals. This is “Gina” for the gals. It is a free gift and comes in a full fatpack of colors. Hurry, you won’t want to miss this beautiful style!

It’s a Line Up.

the line up_001

It’s a line up!

These chairs are guilty… guilty I say! Guilty of being stylish, comfortable, and affordable! They must be held accountable! To my wallet! And then promptly delivered to my home!

Of course… first I had to find them. But that’s okay. They were all in one spot! The Artist Shed is participating in multiple Hunts this April and you can stock up on stylish chairs to meet your decorating needs.

First up, I found the Bad Egg Chair. It is a mere 2 prim when set down. There was also a Good Egg Chair somewhere in the store, but it eluded me. So it is not in the picture. I’m sure it was just as stylish as this sleek black Bad Egg Chair version. And it was only 1L for my hunting time at The Artist Shed.

For a rainy day…

I love this Raindrop Chair in blue. It too is a 1L hunt gift at The Artist Shed for April. This one is part of the April Showers Hunt. All that beautiful style is only 3 prim, 1L, and a little hunting time at the main-store.

Something more rustic.

If you need something for your cabin, or maybe for roleplay, consider hunting down the Reclaimed Barrel Bench for 1L as part of the Barrel Easter Hunt. It is only 3 prim, has a great rustic appeal, and would fit perfectly into many types of fantasy (or country) settings.

Something retro.

There seems to be something for everyone at The Artist Shed this month, proven by chair #4. This one is free, just spend a little time hunting it down and find the Spring has Sprung Chair. It has a bit of a retro feel with it’s old fashioned colors, attached blanket, and flowered styling. It is a mere 3 prim, just waiting for you to pick it up.

Happy seating!

Stopping for a Cuppa

coffee 2_001

Always a hot… hunt.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is one of my favorite hunts. I always love surfing through my inventory after a few stops along the trail. I happened to pick a stop – Mimi’s Choice to be exact – and head home to unpack and was thrilled with the beautiful form fitting flowery gown I unpacked.

This dress nice enough for a date night out, but casual enough for coffee at a cafe. It’s sure to be perfect for any occasion, and it includes all the popular sizes such as:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza

Shoes make a match.

If you hurry, the [MUSE] and NSP Florals March group gift is still out. It’s a lovely gift well worth picking up. You surely must have noticed my gorgeous shoes! These hipster wedges fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza Feet, and include a color change hud with 6 different colors to match your outfits. Hurry! With March being over, I’m not sure how much longer this gift will be out to pick up!

The Easter Egg Hunt at Petite Mort

Snapshot_005

Hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t already heard, Petite Mort’s Easter Egg Hunt started today! Love and I had fun with this fantastic hunt last year, so we were both thrilled to hear it was happening again this year. Talk about the perfect opportunity to amp up your spring/summer wardrobe with seriously cute items from Petite Mort. Love and I also took the opportunity to spend an afternoon catching up while trying on all our pretty new clothes. There may or may not have been a little girl gossip going on as well. I’d tell you what Love said to get me to make that face, but it’s  not the sort of thing a lady should repeat! Snapshot_001

Each egg is just 10 lindens each, and there are 7 total eggs to find at the Petite Mort main location. Just outside the shop is a sign with information about the hunt, including a prize key.  Also, there’s a little rabbit near the sign who will gladly gift you an Easter basket to carry while you hunt!  The Petite Mort Easter Egg Hunt will last from today until April 30th. Happy Hunting!

Jeweled and a[MUSE]ed

a[MUSE]ed

A little fantasy.

NSP florals and [MUSE] set out a great Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that had me thinking along the lines of fantasy and roleplay. It’s only 1L and a little hunting time for the iconic red T-shirt and you get the hair and jeweled hair piece pictured above. The two pieces are separate so you can wear the jeweled headpiece with any other hair that you have. As a bonus, there is an included hud to change the color of the jewels on the headpiece. The hair only comes in the one color and reminds me a bit of old fashioned wigs, but I liked it nonetheless. I thought it was fun!

Matching the pair.

I hadn’t been by Wicca’s Wardrobe in a while and was happy to pick up their latest group gift. The group is 99L to join, but they offer monthly group gifts and the gifts are always top quality. There is always a gift out for both the ladies and the gents. This month I was able to pick up the Belle Dress in Spring Flower.

Sizes available:

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

Going Dotty

Gone Dotty_001

Going dotty.

I’m dotty for this gorgeous applier top that I hunted down at House of Ruby as part of The Evil Bunny Hunt. It was only 1L and well worth looking around the main-store for! There’s a male prize in the box too, if you fellas want to get in on the hunting action!

This is an applier top and comes in the following appliers: Maitreya, Omega, and Slink.

Hop on down to House of Ruby and pick up your Mellow top in Dot today! You have until the end of April to hunt it down!

Wrap it Up with a Bow

Wrap it Up with a Bow 1

Feeling lucky

I was feeling lucky, and I happened to stop by The Little Bat because it’s a place I can try my luck when I think a lucky streak has hit. It has 4 Lucky Letter boards, two Midnight Madness boards and a Lucky Guess game that will all let you win fabulous Gothic style clothing for free, no group required. I managed to round up a lot of goodies, but my favorite was this free Heather Top in purple with its black bow and flared sleeves. It came in all the standard sizes and a good quality alpha layer. It was well worth waiting for my lucky letter!

Checking out Ostara’s Altar Hunt

I ran across a little Hunt that I couldn’t resist. There are 10 Ostara’s Eggs hidden about on the Ostara’s Altar Faire right now among the booths that are on display (lots of great sale items in the booths). Each egg is only 5L when you find it and contains a quality gift from a great creator. My personal favorite item matched my look and my sweater and was a gift from Oubliette — a pair of Pastel Goth Chucks. These shoes are non-rigged mesh and should fit just about any foot type. I only had to do a little bit of editing to get them to fit my Maitreya feet. I feel certain they would fit Slink and TMP feet as well.

The other gifts were just as nice, and this Hunt lasts until April 16, so you have some time to stop by and wander around the little faire to see what you can see. I’d recommend the shopping there as well!

Creepy Steamy

Give Me Steam_001

Feeling Creepy?

Or are you feeling Steamy? I think this look is a cross between dark burlesque and creepy steampunk and I really like it. I managed to put it together for free with some pieces from various gifts that you can grab up if you hurry. All the offers expire in the next three days (March 31st). So don’t wait.

First up, grab my burlesque corset from BYRNE as the free March Subscribo gift. You’ll get both a copper (shown) and purple (not shown) color in your gift box. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes plus you’ll also get popular mesh body sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. While you are at BYRNE, be sure to pick up the free group gift (the group is free to join). It was really nice as well.

Steam on!

I paired my new corset with a pair of outstanding Steampunk boots from the Steam XII Hunt. These boots were free as part of the hunt, and I found them with just a bit of searching at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. They are unrigged mesh, and made to fit standard bodies as well as all the major mesh body types. I got them to fit my Maitreya body perfectly just by hiding my feet! The detailing on them of the gears, straps, and buckles is amazing, and they matched the Corset just perfectly.

Carnival touches…

I really liked the lucky dip this week at PA Designe and couldn’t help but try my chances at it. Luckily I landed the scull nose chain and earring. It’s all one piece for easy fitting. When I attached it, I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t require any editing at all to get it to fit to my Catwa Head. This item is completely free if you are lucky on your dip in the bucket. Take a chance on this skull inspired jewelry piece!
