Cherries on Top

Cherries on Top

Hello, fabulous readers! Since my last post, I’ve been busy searching the PurpleMoon store for the awesome gifts in their Cherries on Top Hunt 6 – and boy am I tired! Thankfully this cute cafe at Paris Je T’aime was still open so I could grab an iced coffee and rejuvenate. 😎

Ten delicious slices of chocolate cake – each containing a gorgeous, free prize – have been hidden around the PurpleMoon and Wetcat main stores. The Rules:

  • This hunt is free and open to the public (no group membership required).
  • The object you are looking for is a SLICE OF CAKE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP (like the sample located at the entrance).
  • To receive the gift, simple touch the cake. You will be given an object that can be worn to unpack.
  • The prizes have funny names – no area search allowed!
  • There are no hints given, as all gifts are in plain sight. Very easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.
  • The prizes have been hidden at the GROUND LEVEL of the MAIN STORE (9 of them). Not upstairs. There is one extra prize to be found at Wetcat main store. The balloon decorations are an indicator that there are some cherry cakes hidden in that room!
  • It is MANDATORY to HAVE FUN!

Cherries on Top

In addition to the lovely clothing items from PurpleMoon, there is also a gift from Wetcat containing 3 cute poses with a heart balloon. I’m showing one of them here. ❤

The clothing items come in the following sizes:Cherries on Top

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS-L with alpha layer (PJs are only in these sizes)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara (some include the autohide)
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Sandals are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Since I was showing so much skin in the second outfit, I decided to add this pretty heart and butterfly tattoo, which is a group gift from Nanika (free to join). It comes with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars. FYI: there are several other gifts available on the group lucky boards.

This isn’t a difficult hunt – since the hunt objects are hidden “in plain sight” – but I’ll admit that it did take me a while to complete (I think some of the hunt objects didn’t rez because the sim was very full). And believe me, they are NOT kidding about the “area search” thing. Don’t even waste your time searching for “cherries” because you will wind up on a wild goose chase looking for decoys. Yes… I tried it (/me hangs head in shame). 😳

Cherries on Top

PurpleMoon’s Cherries on Top Hunt 6 ends on February 28th, so HURRY on over to collect ALL the prizes. 😀

Once Upon a PurpleMoon

Once upon a Purple Moon

Once upon a PurpleMoon… there was a great group gift and you only needed the group tag to get it! The group tag was 50L but the regular group gifts and special offers made it well worth the join fee! This month’s group gift is called Tiffany… and it is every woman’s dream come true…

This dress comes with a half skirt (shown) or a full skirt (not shown) add on, as well as mesh to support all the major mesh body types, including an auto hide for Maitreya bodies! This dress even includes a beautiful sculpt bow for your waist! All you’ll need is to find a great pair of heels somewhere and you’ll be set… just be sure you don’t leave one behind at the stroke of midnight!

Waiting at the Bistro

Waiting at the Bistro

I’m waiting at the Bistro for my brunch date, but while I am, it gives me the perfect chance to show off my new gown called Queen in pink, courtesy of Purplemoon creations. You can pick up this FREE group gift if you stop by the main-store and don your group tag (the group is a mere 50L to join and there are always amazing group gifts and offers to make it worth being part of the group).

The gown includes the beautiful mesh gown itself in all the standard sizes, the mesh bolero in standard sizes, as well as the lovely floating pearls around the base. Each of these three parts are separate pieces. Wear them all or mix and match for a perfect look!

Ooops! I see my date! Brunch for me! 😉 I’ll catch you later with other great deals!

Quench your thirst

Quench your thirst

I just couldn’t resist grabbing a few more of those FREE drinks over at the PurpleMoon Cherry Drink Hunt.

My top is drink #5 and my pants are #6. Both are FREE just wander around the PurpleMoon garden area collecting the drinks. No clues but this hunt is designed to be pretty easy so you won’t need any. The drinks aren’t hidden.

My Anika top is mesh and included 2 versions a solid and a sheer version which you wear an included system layer bra with. I was daring and used the sheer version. My Heather trousers are also mesh and come with the belt attached. These pants are rather long and didn’t work well with my flat feet and I am not sure how well they would work with mid ones either. They look best with high feet and if you want your shoes to peak out you probably have to use a stacked shoe. I actually have heals on and most times you can’t see them. Both pieces have a lovely shimmer and of course can be worn separately.

The PurpleMoon Cherry Drink hunt runs til the 28th so you don’t have to rush but why wait either!

Feeling young at heart and poppin my gum. My gum is something I found FREE from Muschi on Marketplace.

Maybe it was the PurpleMoon Cherry Drink hunt that put me in my mood. Its an open to everyone hunt and the prizes are all FREE. 10 cherries have been hidden at the PurpleMoon Gardens (not the shop itself), find them and taste the sweetness of their fabulous treasures!

There are no hints given. They are in plain sight. Easy to find and this is more for the fun of it than anything else.

I wandered around and snapped up some drinks. My outfit is made up of #1 love top & #3 jess skirt. Both mesh items. Several of the items are mix and match types so have fun and put them together however your heart likes.

The PurpleMoon Cherry Drink hunt runs til the 28th so that should give you plenty of time to run over and have some drinks!

I’m bringing you a quickie, not because I’m in a hurry, but because once you see this gift you’ll want to grab it quick! I think the offer will be out for several days but it’s just too gorgeous not to snap up fast!

PurpleMoon Creations has just put out their new group gift, and it is a stunner! This Royal Queen gown in black with silver accents and the fabulous faux fur stole is perfect for January ballroom dancing (or any formal occasion). The ‘body’ portion of the dress comes in system layers — or if you are a mesh body fan like me, all the appliers you need (the gloves too). There is also a ‘no gloves option’ if you don’t want to wear the gloves, and the fur stole is optional as well, making this gown totally versatile (I like the idea of the no gloves version for later spring and summer wear myself!)

So snag your ride down to PurpleMoon! The gift is FREE with your group tag (the group is 50L to join), but PurpleMoon is always generous with the gifts, so you won’t regret joining!

We’ve Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!)

There’s nothing quite like working together to get a job done! And I had a picture frame to hang so… I called Glimmer over to see if she’d help me — plus I wanted to show her my new Christmas tree! I’m not really sure this was the kind of framing I had in mind… but we had fun anyway! 😀

By the way! That gorgeous 3-D mesh Christmas tree you see behind us? Is a totally FREE gift you can pick up if you hurry over to LeLutka right now. It’s their advent tree! Not only is LeLutka giving away gorgeous advent gifts each day, but they are giving away the tree too! Just join the LeLutka group FREE and click the tree itself for your FREE copy!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 1

So we didn’t quite get the picture hung on the wall, but Glimmer and I looked great anyway! I had found this amazing applier top (don’t worry it has system layers too) called the April Blouse (with lovely flexi sleeves and prim bottom) at the advent calendar at PurpleMoon Creations (Day 15). It is yours FREE with your 50L group join — plus all the other advent goodies at PurpleMoon as well!

Glimmer outdid me though, I think! Can you believe how that gold dress just shimmers! She found a real sweet deal at Sweet Temptations for you! Her Golden Nights cocktail dress is the current FREE gift at Sweet Temptations and the group is FREE to join as well, making it a completely FREE gift! Yay! She is also wearing a free holiday hat she found at SnowPaws that are FREE for everyone — no group required! How cool is that!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 2

I wanted to show you a couple more great offers before I went back to finish hanging that frame that never got hung! The hair you see me sporting in these pictures is from MINA and is currently one of two VIP gifts available to group members. This one is called Waylon and is actually the men’s gift, but it had such a cute little ‘flip’ to the edges that it took on a feminine feel when I put it on (sorry guys out there!). The female gift is equally pretty. Both gifts are yours FREE with you group tag. The group is 200L to join but you get 2 gifts per month, full fatpacks, so the fee is well worth your time.

My necklace is currently a FREE advent gift at Chop Zuey (day 3) from the FREE side (no group required). This particular necklace called Snow Dance also came with earrings which I’m not wearing, and just has gorgeous details. The advent calendar at Chop Zuey is filling up with beautiful items… be sure to check it out!

All sweatered up for a night out

Happy Saturday everyone. My Mom and I are going out for some girls night fun tonight, and before I start thinking of what I’m going to wear for this RL outing, I thought I’d have some fun and doll myself up in SL for the very same thing. Any excuse to put on something pretty, am I right? LOL.

gazebo_002

If you head over to B!asta, you will see that they are part of this years Dirty Turkey Hunt. The gift you need to find, is this lovely sweater and skirt combo called As A Feather. Both pieces are mesh, and while they are obviously made to go with each other, each piece would be great for mixing and matching with other items in your inventory. I had to include a shot of the sexy low back on the sweater, what a nice detail. B!asta is stop #22, and the hint for their prize is : Omg, one of these lights just stared at me – with turkey eyes!! As with all Dirty Turkey Hunt prizes, this baby is free! Here’s a link to the hunt page so you can see all the other stores participating.

If you hadn’t already guessed, I am a nail polish fiend. Both in RL and SL. Lucky for me, Alaskametro’s monthly Facebook gift for November, is a set of Autumn coloured, glittery, nail appliers. You get appliers for Eve, Maitreya, Omega and Slink, in this free for all gift. To claim it, you need to head to Alaskametro’s Facebook page and look under the promotions tab. Copy the keyword, and then in world, head over to the store. Stand near the poster of the gift, and type in /33 KEYWORD, with KEYWORD being replaced by what you copied from Facebook. I have to say, I had a hard time deciding which colour to show off.

As for the beautiful skin I have on, Niska  in Pumpkin, with pretty orangey lips and eyeshadow, is a L$75 special that you will find at Lumae. It was supposed to be part of Lazy Sunday, but Lumiya forgot to apply for this last round, oops! So she decided to put it out at the Lazy Sunday price anyways. As with all of her skin specials, it comes with every applier you could possibly think of, along with several tattoo layers for things like freckles and cleavage. You have until November 21 to get this lovely skin at this price.

With a few extra touches, I think I am perfectly dressed for a girls night out. If only it were this easy in RL eh? Alright my lovely FabFreers, I better head out. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I will see you again soon. Until then, TTFN 🙂

The Draw to Enchantment

“Do you hear the call of the waves below?
Or the way the fishes move in the flow?
To Sea! To Sea! The Seagulls do caw.
From somewhere she answers…
She answers their call.
Can you see the foam layered on sand?
Or feel the way it creeps up your hand?
Her curls shine…Shine bright in the sun.
She smiles and dances…
She dances for fun.
She’s ready to share her treasure with you.
Though you’ll need to find it.
Before the others do.”
[Poem courtesy of the Enchantment Hunt]

The Draw of Enchantment [1]

I’ll be honest… I’m not one for hunts. (I’m one of those people who has a terrible time finding where I last left my glasses in real life, let alone finding a hunt item in SL!) But this Hunt drew me in the minute I saw the amazing line up of designers and the gorgeous gifts, and I knew I had to share it with you! Especially as every one of these hunt gifts are FREE. Just find the little purple shell, click it, and viola! You’ve found your prize!

The theme of the Enchantment Hunt is little mermaid. I found you a simply amazing mesh tail for only 50L at The Muses that works great with the mesh Maitreya Lara body (which is what I have) as well as system bodies (you can see the tail in the picture above.) The Muses sells their tail in two styles — Ianthe or Ondine and you can get either style in an amazing array of colors from either their Marketplace store or their in-world store. I admit to grabbing mine from the Marketplace simply for the convenience.

The shot above is also a great view of half of the gift you’ll find if you stop by .aisling. as you swim through this great hunt. Their gift composed of two parts: a pose and a prop. The picture above gives you a clear shot of the pose… the siren or mermaid reaching out to draw in her prey… the picture below gives you a good picture of the second half of .aisling’s. gift — a stunning dagger with an intricately detailed hilt for you to hold.

The Draw of Enchantment [2]

The Hunt includes 23 amazing stops — far too many for me to showcase in one post. But I tried to hit several to give you an idea of just how amazing these gifts really are. This skin by Lumae called Adore – Eione // Anemone (notice the amazing details with the scales on the skin?!) came with every applier imaginable, as well as different color brow options and was also part of the Hunt.

My tiara is an Enchantment Hunt gift courtesy of PurpleMoon Creations and when I stumbled upon it, I fell in love — not just with the detailing and style but with the thoughtfulness of the creator who added a color-change hud! There are 12 gem color options and 5 metal options!

My mesh pearls and sexy star seashell modesty breast covers are an Enchantment Hunt gift from [Glitzz] and just as generous as the other gifts as they included an easy to use resize script that made them easy to fit to my avatar’s shape. I loved that I did not have to modify my avatar to fit these items, but instead I could modify these items to fit my avatar.

Last but not least — it’s not a hunt item, but I found a fabulous gift from you from Alice Project! They have put out a promo on the marketplace as a FREE gift for customers called Summertime Sadness in a special set of Mini Medley colors. I chose this lovely pastel pink to complete my look, but there were lots of great colors on the hud. And as always, this mesh style from Alice project is just breathtaking!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!
