Mystical Beauty

Mythical Market Hunt
Hunts are really one of my favorite things to do in SL.  I also like events.  It’s awesome to see all the different creators come together and offer fresh new styles.  I love an event that is themed AND has a hunt, and I was not at all disappointed in the Mystical Market Love Potion Edition Event & Hunt.  The hunt items are 10L but no group is needed, but you can view them here in advance.  BUT, definitely go to each store because there are free gifts, too.

Most everything in the picture above was found in the hunt or as a freebie.  Let’s dig in!

The outfit by QE Designs is actually labeled as pajamas (Veronica pajamas – Dark Vintage Lace), but I would totally wear this to a club.  It comes with a 4-color HUD including black, berry, and blue (and the purple I am wearing).  Cost: 10L (Hunt)

The Outfit!

The Hottie Heels are made by Grumble and come in red.  They are really cute (and look very sharp – both literally and figuratively).  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Potion Necklace by Little Bat comes in two versions: Love or Hate.  I am a lover, so I went with Love for the picture.  You can click to resize it.

The Love Potion Paper Earrings are made by Byrne and are super cool.  First, they come in pink, purple, and red, but each color also comes with both a static and a glow version that blinks slowly!  I am wearing the glow version, but you really can’t see them blinking.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The Earrings Glow!

The circular tapestry rug by QE Designs is really pretty, and this is one of three FREE gifts in the QE shoppe at the Mystical Market. Cost: FREE!!!

The red and black Gothica Pillows come with red wine glasses and are by Angelic Designs.  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The rose and thorns decor by Love is so pretty.  You can resize this and it works on the ground or on a mantlepiece.  Cost 10L (Hunt)

The backdrop is called Black Witch Moth Tapestry by Dragon Magick Wares.  It’s resizable which I loved!  Cost: 10L (Hunt).

The Gothic Valentine’s Gift Boxes by Laminak come in 4 styles.  They have little skulls on them and the ribbon colors differ on each box.  Cost 10L (Hunt).

The pose is from Something New called Just Take My Heart at the Cheeky 69 event.  It comes with both the pose and the little heart.  Cost 69L (Event).

Hey Gang!

It’s that time of year once again, when there are hearts and cupids all around and the world is blissfully pink (ok and red, black, white, purple…)!  Now, Valentine’s Day has not notoriously been my best holiday (I got dumped once, when I was 20, on Valentines Day.) but nowadays, the abundance of so many things pink makes me like it so much more!

It’s also the time of the year for another Shop & Hop.  Squee!  I actually got a late start with it and haven’t gone through everything yet, but I’ve got a couple of things for you to whet your appetite a bit.

As they say on Big Brother…. “But first”, I have a little something for you from Astralia.  If you are one of their Very Important Unicorns, this super cute boba tea bear is the new free group gift.  You have a choice of several sayings, the one I chose made me giggle so it was a keeper.  The Astralia group is 149L to join.  This came in very handy while I was running around Shop & Hop at top speed.  I got very thirsty!

Here is a close up of it for you:

Now on to Shop & Hop

I wanted to put together a cute Valentine-y post and what better place to scoop up a poop load of goodies than Shop & Hop?!  This cute backdrop was a free gift from M-BdP.  It comes with some cute poses built in including a “Will you marry me?” pose!

These smexy shoes and stockings are the free gift from Aurora and fit:

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Signature Alice

There is no group required to scoop up the freebies at Shop & Hop, but leave yourself plenty of time because it will take you a good while to peruse the entire mall.

Happy Shopping & Hopping kiddos!

Lost Hearts Hunt ~ 25 FREE & Fabulous Gifts!!!

Lost Hearts Hunt!
I love me a good hunt, but I really don’t like hunts that are just too hard.  I mean, really, who has all that spare time???  I loved (LOVED) the Lost Hearts Hunt located at Valentine Island.  There are 25 easy to find prizes all over this very well decorated Valentine’s Day sim.  There are lots of places to take pictures; lots of places to picnic, dance or play with your SL partner!  But, what’s the BEST part you ask…well, everything is FREE!!!  No group is needed :-). You have some time to get there, but definitely don’t miss it!  The hunt lasts until February 20, 2022.

The Valentine's SimI don’t want to spoil the hunt for you…so I am not telling you where any of these little hearts are located, but, they aren’t overly hard to find.  They are FREE, so just right click and buy for 0L.  Don’t try the age old trick of looking up under Creator because the amazing creator, Tayren Theas, has created pretty much everything on the sim, so you will have beacons everywhere :-). Tayren has been on the grid a long time and designs for SL Ballet.

The Hearts are all different I’ve featured a few of my favorite FREE gifts in the picture above, but, truly, I spent 20 minutes just trying to decide.  The Asian Teahouse comes with furniture and plants (not pictured).  The ladies pajamas match the Men’s boxers (also not pictured).  This chess set that I am standing on can be PLAYED!  The Fountain behind me has running water.  The couple’s tree comes in three versions (Spring, Winter, and White Flower).  There are also adorable Valentine’s chalk posters (not pictured).  The list goes on and on.

So, what are YOU waiting for…grab cupid’s bow and arrow and get on over to Valentine Island!

A Closeup of the Ring

In this picture, I am wearing the adorable pajamas (called Loungewear) and the little gold heart ring that was easy to adjust.  These gifts both have FREE male counterparts (boxers and a male heart ring).  How cool is that???

Burtonesque

piccy_012 (2) (1)

What’s This?

This scene has some serious Nightmare Before Christmas vibes, with its references to the work of the artist and filmaker Tim Burton. I put my own spin on his creations though, by inserting myself in my “Vimperella” costume.  I even invited Zero (the ghost dog featured in the Nightmare Before Christmas) along for the photoshoot. Yeah, I’m still not really over Halloween and one of the reasons I always loved that film is because it allowed me to keep experiencing Halloween (my actual favourite holiday) at Christmas time when I was a child! Here’s a toast to the Nightmare Before Christmas!

Near the End

Time to get to the gifts! I’m at it again with blogging some of the prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. Today I’ll be showing you a sleek pair of boots and a full Tim Burton-themed scene including a house and other decor on the hunt.

The great pair of purple peep-toe boots I am wearing are a free hunt prize rom NoShot. I just love these boots, and they match some of my favourite outfits.  It addition, NoShot has some more prizes for women, which can be seen in their hunt key here. They also have some gifts for men that were previously blogged by Gabe here.

Sizes Included (Boots)

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Burtonesque

Now here is the feature for today- almost everything you see in my “Burtonesque” scene are prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt at Kim’s Kreations. You can see them in both photo’s I’ve posted today.

Coming Soon

The prizes are:

  • A large Burtonesque-style house with cobwebs hanging off of it.
  • A striped black and white pumpkin with a white pumpkin set. (Beetlejuice, anyone?)
  •  The flat black stylized tree- another creation reminiscent of the artistic style seen in Burton’s films and artwork. This piece also includes little black and white striped bats.
  • A “witch planter” which has the legs of a witch sticking out of a pot.
  • The dancing dolls- these are creepy dolls with button eyes that spin around and dance together. They are quite magical yet scary at the same time!

Each prize costs only 1 Linden at Kim’s Kreations.

If you are having trouble finding any prizes on the hunt in the last few days, check out the hints for the prizes here.

Have fun hunting, FabFree!

A Touch of Crystal Magic

A Touch of Crystal Magic
It’s that time of the year for one of my favourite events!  The Crystal Heart Festival is here – complete with magic, sparkles, and about 40 million Sailor Moon references.  It’s always an exciting event to wander around, because there are loads of pretty creations to drool over.  If you’re not in the mood to spend any Lindens though, I’ve got some great news – plenty of freebies to be had!

Space Girl

Everything kawaii, sweet and sparkly is what really attracts me to The Crystal Heart Festival year after year, but I also do have a special place in my heart for Sailor Moon since it was such a big thing when I was in High School.  You’d often find me singing “Fighting Evil by Moonlight…” while wondering exactly why the girls were always dressed as sailors.  Anyway, you don’t need to join a group to pick up the lovely free gifts at The Crystal Heart Festival, just click on the little pink heart-shaped boxes at the stalls (most will have one, but not all) and then revel in the cuteness within.  Here’s what I’ve got on!

  • FREE Hair by Love in 12 fantasy colours and an RGB input HUD
  • FREE Skirt by Loki sized for Maitreya bodies
  • FREE floating animated orb by Petrichor (it’s soooo mesmerizing)
  • FREE shoes by Exia sized for Maitreya and Legacy

The Crystal Heart Festival just opened, so it’s quite busy at the moment.  If you can’t get in right away, don’t despair – it’s running until August 27th

Have fun!

Coming soon!

Hey gang!

I’ve been visiting the Hair Fair (I think I might possibly kinda sorta have an obsession for hair!), and like the other girls, I too found some awesome super duper faboo freebies for y’all!

Now, since I can model only one hair at a time, I have only included one in the post but fear not!  I found other freebies for you as well, which will undoubtedly show up in other posts.  😉  (natch!)

Lets dive in, shall we?  First off the cute cute hair, this is a free gift (no group required) from Love at the Hair Fair.

The adorbs outfit, this is a new free group gift from Reed (group is free to join and she has a wall of gifties!), it fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I wish they had hair fairs more often, I kind of have an obsession with hair.  I wish I could change it up in real life as quickly as I do in second life.  That and teleporting.  yes please!  😀

The backdrop is from Tropix, it is a free gift at SL18B which ends very soon so hurry over!  No group required here either.  Just run around and grab goodies!

Let the Party Begin!

Coming soon to fab free!

Hey gang!

So as you all know, SL is celebrating its 18th (!!!) Birthday today!  It is almost not a teenager any more!  Our little SL is growing up! (collective “awwwwww!”)

Ok I am just being silly, I traveled the entire 16 sims and not only are my feet killing me (I should *not* have worn those heels!), my head is still spinning on what to show you first!  It’s been difficult to decide, but I wanted to gather up a little collection of items that would pull together nicely and the above is what I came up with!  Of course I have a weakness for the Holo stuff, so that helped me decide!

Because it is a lot, I will keep it simple and straightforward and list it for you here (yes they are all free gifts, with no group needed!):

Free top & skirt (it is two pieces you can wear separate) is by Ersch, it fits:

  • Freya Perky
  • K-Krups
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy

It comes in both yellow and purple versions.  I am wearing purple.

Free shoes and legwarmers are from Pink Cream Pie, they fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

They come with a HUD giving you a multitude of color choices and combinations.

The free purse is from Sheba, it fits everyone!  Yay!

The free hair is from Love, this also should fit everyone!

And last but certainly not least, the free halo/crown is from Lassitude & Ennui, and this fits anyone who feels the need to wear a magical, starry crown!

The links below should land you at the booth for each designer I’ve mentioned.  The event runs from June 17 to July 6.  Have fun!!!

The Pink List

The Pink List

I’ve come over all pink again (this seems to be happening a lot recently, doesn’t it?).  Today I’m all about cotton candy, kitten’s noses and a happy smattering of sparkles.  For good measure, I’ll also throw in a mention of puffy stickers, strawberry milkshakes and bottles of Miss Dior Chérie perfume.  It’s just one of those days (possibly weeks) I guess!

Back to Cosmo

So just when you thought your inventories were safe from overstuffing, I’m coming back at you with news of yet another round of Cosmopolitan filled with even more free gifts.  Oh, I totally know what you’re thinking “but but…Aline…you’ve mentioned this already” and I say sagely back “ah, my sweet readers, they have done it again!”.  Indeed, it’s the second half of Cosmopolitan’s 9th anniversary celebrations, with yet another two week round filled to the brim with gifts at each stall.  Join the free group and you can also grab (like I did)…

  • FREE dress from Candy Kitten sized for Freya, Legacy, Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • FREE shoes by Little Fox sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy & Alice
  • FREE glasses by DISH with an HUD to change to several other colours
  • FREE pose by West End with a second pose in the box

This round of Cosmo runs until May 29th!

Bubble gum!  Bubbles!  Pink roses!  I can’t stop!
