Peppermint Mocha

Peppermint Mocha

This time of year I always find myself reflecting on the year past, and looking forward to the year ahead. This year has been and continues to be one for the books. I hope everyone reading this has had a great year full of things to be grateful for. I am thankful for so many things, and extra thankful that you’re here reading this post!

For this blog post I did some of the Candy Cane Hunt hosted by Kastle Rock Couture. There are several paths on this hunt, each with 3 linden hunt prizes. I picked up the free gift at Kastle Rock, along with the 3 linden hunt prize at Kastle Rock. I also got the hunt prize at Luna to share with you. Keep reading for some details about each one, or scroll down for full credits. Happy Hunting!

Kastle Rock

Kastle Rock is the starting point for the Candy Cane Hunt. It’s also where you can pick up the free sunglasses shown sitting on the pile of books next to me in the above photo. This unisex gift is meant to be worn, has resize scripts for easy fitting. You’ll find this freebie waiting near the entrance to the Kastle Rock main store. Kastle Rock also happens to be a stop on the Sugar Plum path of the Candy Cane Hunt. The comfy holiday jammies I’m wearing is their 3 linden hunt prize. The set comes with a color change hud for the top with the choice of white, green, or red. There are also quite a few sizes, including those suitable for classic non mesh avatars, and an alpha layer is in the package as well.

Sizes Included: Classic Mesh + Alpha Layers, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Slender Fit, Curvy Fit

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “Santa’s Helper says huh? August has a candy cane version?”

Luna

The deep red manicure and pedicure I am sporting is part of another Candy Cane Hunt prize. This one can be found at Luna. The red is a bit darker in my photo than it actually looks when worn. This cute nail applier set comes with 6 wintery/holiday options, 3 shimmery solid colors(red, white, blue), and red, white, or blue with cute snowflakes. Luna is also a stop on the Sugar Plum Fairy path of the Candy Can Hunt.

Appliers included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza

Hint – Sugar Plum Fairy Path – “I love nutcrackers, reindeer and snowmen.”

Petals on the wind

Petals on the wind

I was on a wander yesterday on a Hunt and I ended up over at the Springtime Harambee Charity Market. Now I thought… what’s a gorilla have to do with Spring? But I found out that “Harambee” means “Pulling Together” in Kenyon. I dug a little deeper and learned that the ‘pulling together’ harambee translates as is all peoples, regardless of race or language coming together for the good of all. It’s such a beautiful thought!

Petal Perfect

As I went around the little market, I couldn’t help but see all the free gifts set out by the venders. And when I saw the gift from Kastle Rock Couture I was so excited. As I expected, KRC has given us a truly lovely gown. This is the ‘Titania Gown’ in petal pink. You also get the beautiful head jewels too. The gown comes in two versions: one with a subtle glow and one without. Just the thing for wanders through the fantasy forests, don’t you think?

Sizes Included

  • Mesh Sizes XS-XL

A quick note… when you land, just follow the trail of blossoms to the Market!

I Used to Sail the Deep and Tranquil Sea

Pirate Life For Me
Ahoy There Fab Free Mateys! I hope everyone is doing well. Thanks to the Skull n Bones Hunt, I’ve spent the last day in pirate gear, and I’m not at all mad about it! Kastle Rock Couture has this playful pirate outfit as their Skull n Bones Hunt prize for the ladies. I also read all about the hunt happening at This Is Wrong from Alison’s post “Follow Me Down to the Water.” So of course, I had to participate in that! This red full body tattoo is one of the several 30L items you’ll find. I hope you like this fantasy pirate look as much as I do!

The Outfit – When I say outfit, I mean outfit. This Skull n Bones Hunt prize from Kastle Rock comes with the boots, the skirt, the top, and the hat. There is also a matching men’s pirate outfit. You’ll find this 2 linden hunt prize is on the Rum Runner path of the Skull n Bones hunt. The prize is just 2 linden, and you’ll be searching for a little red starfish. The skirt and top also come in a “risque” version which is slightly transparent. The shoes and hat come in a single size, and there is an alpha layer with the boots. P.S. This outfit is suitable for Classic Avatars!
Hint – “I’m stuck in limbo between Mens and mini dresses, at least there are places to sit… Maybe I’ll have a glass of wine. ”
Skirt & Top Sizes Included: Classic (xxs – L), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Tonic (Fine, Curvy), eBody (top only)

The Tattoo – This is the last day of the 30L hunt at This is Wrong! To find the items just click the vendors and look for the items marked 30 linden. I picked up a few things, but there are several items marked down, including some for the guys. I love a good full-body tattoo. This one is not only full body, but has face appliers for Catwa and Lelutka, and comes in fresh and faded versions. Also, check out the Lucky Letter boards while you are there. There’s no group needed for those!
Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP

Here are the details, enjoy!

Better in a Black Dress

Black Widow
Hello again, Wonderful Readers!  Earlier this week, I was startled to hear a rummaging sound emanating from my closet.  When I turned to investigate, my canine pal, Ripley, emerged, clutching his tracking harness gently between his teeth.  He pranced over to me, dropped the harness at my feet, then stood, waiting expectantly, his tail waving happily from side to side.  I knew this meant only one thing – the pupster would soon lead me to another Fabulous Find.

A-Hunting We Will Go!

After snapping Ripley into his hunting garb, I did a quick search, and discovered the intriguing Black Widow 2 Hunt is in full swing.  Packed with spooky, edgy gifts hidden along 5 paths comprised of 13 stores each, this hunt will remain open through November 30th, so there’s still a bit of time left for you to don your detective hats, and hit the trail.  Rip and I opted to begin with the “Black Veil Path.”  At the first stop, Kastle Rock Couture, I showed my fashion-seeking hound a picture of the hunt object (the “Spider’s Kiss” vial), and he quickly set off, nose to the ground.  After zigzagging around the store, we finally uncovered the cleverly concealed bottle.  For only 2L, the stunning Black Widow Gown joined my collection of formal wear.

Timeless and Beautiful Elegance

Nestled inside the prize package, I found a lovely black formal gown with long layers of organza and tulle that flowed into a full, floor-length skirt with a softly gathered bustle.  Glittering sequins shimmered in the moonlight as I slipped into the form-fitting, strapless bodice.  A sweeping train, ruffled trim, and a lacy black veil beautifully adorned the frock, adding a touch of graceful splendor.

What’s Included:

  • Omega Advanced Applier
  • Pants/shirt layer for classic avatars
  • 4 flouncy, skirt layers
  • Widow’s veil

Feeling elegant and sophisticated wearing this floaty, glittering dress, I accompanied Ripley to the plaza of the Invictus sim where we made two new avian friends.  Before closing, I want to share one last photograph with you, which showcases the magnificent train of this glorious gown.  It’s hard to believe it only cost me 2 little Linden dollars!

Better in a Black Dress
With just days left in the Black Widow 2 Hunt, we’d better get back to work.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

Kastle Rock Couture World Tour 2014 Gridwide Hunt

Last night I was running around the grid trying to check, double check and do a triple check on all the places listed in our ’30’ days list for new residents in SL.  It had been a lonnnnnnnnnnnnng day…my eyes were blurry and my head was getting fuzzy from all that crosschecking of information.  About half way through my tasks, I tp’d into Kastle Rock Couture to verify their information.  While camming around…looking for their Freebies for Newbies HUD…something caught my eye!  There was a big display for the Kastle Rock World Tour 2014 Gridwide Hunt.  At first, I thought I was just too tired to go on another hunt and I was ready to just file it away, in my brain, to explore it further today…BUT, in the Hunt display was a giant photo of a man and woman in the most comfy looking bathrobes I’d seen in a long time.  Now, perhaps it was because I was tired, or perhaps it was the Giraffe print trim, but I was HOOKED!  I HAD to have that FREE bathrobe!  So I grabbed the World Tour HUD and found the hint for the robe…it didn’t take long…thankfully KRC makes it easy to find their wonderful goodies.
Kastle Rock Couture World Tour Hunt
I LOVE this plush, comfy, FREE Girafrika robe so much, I decided to wear it ALL day and treat myself to a little “me” time.  The folder contains a his and hers robe…however, they are not transferable.  So if you want one for your sweetheart, just take them with you so they can grab one for themselves!  Besides, hunts are more fun with friends and sweethearts. ❤ Kastle Rock Couture World Tour HuntThe World Tour 2014 Gridwide Hunt dates are 2/21-3/31.  You can find more information about it on the SL Hunts page .  I haven’t ventured out to check out more Hunt items yet…but when I do…I will be happy to share them with you.

Happy Hunting! ❤ ❤

Angelica

This is one of those photos that just “happened.” I had nothing really in mind; I just started moving things around and playing with windlight until it looked right. Sometimes those impromptu pictures are the ones that come out best. 🙂

Blogging soon!

Anyway… my dress is Angelica, the current group gift from Kastle Rock Couture. Included are the boots and stockings, and there are Lola’s appliers in the box. I’m wearing everything except the Lola’s appliers, but you can mix and match the pieces for a… um… less “modest” wearing option. 😉 My earrings are a free gift from Always Eclectic, and my nail appliers – which you basically can’t see here – are from a big box of HUDs in the group notices of MOCK Cosmetics. I’m wearing Nebula, but there are 18 other colors in the box to choose from. There are lots of generous gifts in the MOCK notices right now, so be sure you snap them all up!

*You petites out there can pick up the Angelica group gift at Kastle Enchanted Petites.
