On the hunt for… various things.

Flower Power_001

I must have taken a wrong turn in Amsterdam somewhere. I ended up in this salvage yard while I was trying to hunt down Gavin to tell him that Serena had gone out for a horseback ride in the country. I was sure it was just down that street there but sure enough I ended up here on the wrong side of town in front of a van that looks like its straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon. Not that I mind sight seeing mind you. I’m still trying to find Gavin. I think he went shopping for Friday deals. I wonder if he got anything good?

Hunting for other things instead…

For now I’ve given up the hunt for Gavin. That guy is just on his own. I did manage to hunt down some sweet deals of my own though! I happen to love St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because it’s a good excuse to wear green. So I was checking out all the monthly hunts and ran across the Luck of the Irish Hunt and scored a really cute tank top at Ambient for just 1L! It has cute lace trim around the hem and the neckline and comes in several mesh sizes.

Shirt Sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Maitreya
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • eBody
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

OOOOoooo Don’t forget!

I joined the Vision Vip Group a while back for 250L. Now this might seem steep for a group join, but every month I visit the store and pick up my 100L in-store credit (plus I get access to the lucky letter boards that change out monthly too… I just happened to snag a shirt off one of those boards while I was there, and I might show that off in another post). So I had saved up my credit for the last two months and had 200L to spend.

I picked up this cute little black mini skirt that was only 199L and it didn’t cost me a single penny since I had my in-store credit. Plus I got the cute shirt I mentioned off the lucky letter board! For that one time fee, your monthly in-store credit adds up over time, making it worth joining, plus those lucky letter boards, woooo hoo!

Caught! Red Handed

12-18-2017

I was just rearranging the packages…

I was not shaking them or trying to guess what’s inside. I can’t believe you would accuse me of such a thing. When I was a child, I was horrible about packages under the tree. I would try to guess every package, mine or not. Sometimes, I miss that little scamp…

Gifts before Christmas…

GIZ SEORN (formally Gizza Creations) has not one, but two gifts under the tree for guys. I’m wearing the second of the two today. The Men’s Christmas Gift II outfit consists of a red button down shirt and green trousers and in the following sizes:

  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

While this gift is free to members, there is a group join fee of 50L, but there are past gifts still available.

Still time for peace….

My Vance Roughneck Boots are the Peace on Earth Hunt prize for guys at Roped Passions. There is still time go get all the gifts on this hunt as it concludes at the end of December. Ok, Ok… I’ll put the presents back….

It’s December! It’s December!

Santas Workshop_001

It’s December, it’s December! And I decided to visit Santa’s workshop and check out what the elves are up to. I caught this cute little red-headed one making and wrapping up toys already and I couldn’t help but get in on the fun. And I found some great gifts of my own to share with you too!

More POE!

The other bloggers have already shown you POE gifts galore and I picked up these fabulous Wedge Boots in Red for free by Roped Passions as part of the hunt. They are unrigged mesh so they work with any body, you just need to hide your feet. I really love them and they are so versatile! They have just enough sheen to them to make them really sexy!

Speaking of Sexy…

If you haven’t checked out the Sexy Christmas Hunt, you should. For just 1L I picked up this Tartan Bralet from Trashed as part of that hunt. It’s a cute little number that I just fell in love with. It comes in several sizes to make it worth your while. I have a Maitreya body, but found that the Medium size fit me just perfectly.

Bralet sizes available:

  • Classic S – M
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

Top it off

I knew I needed a hat, even though I was inside the cozy workshop. So I picked up this cute one off of marketplace by Hungry Cats. It was only 10L and there were four hat colors included in the package, making this even a more special deal for your linden. It was modifiable, so I darkened the red just a bit to match my outfit and yay I was done!

Happy December to everyone!

Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

Twisted Huntress

Wasteland_001

I’ve been able to bring you several roleplay posts lately… and it’s been a lot of fun to be able to do so. I have managed to put together an outfit today that is almost entirely free, expect for the pants and it would go great in a post apocalyptic setting, a sci-fi setting, or even a medieval fantasy setting.

It’s so twisted

The twisted hunt is on… with all its twisted cubes. It’s arguably one of the most difficult hunts on the grid, but it’s also one of the most rewarding with its excellent free gifts.

Roped Passions has a history of getting in on the action and this round is no different. The creator is giving away a main prize as well as 6 side prizes and will also have out a riot vendor as well this time around.

The main prize

You’ll want to hunt down this free Revenge Huntress Jacket as the main prize for the Twisted Hunt at Roped Passions! It’s a great piece for any sort of roleplay as I mentioned before and comes in crimson and black. It’s fully mesh and exposes the top of some cleavage without being overdone.

Shirt Sizes Available:

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

Boots too

One of the side hunt gifts at Roped Passions is the free pair of Vex Kreepers in Crimson Boots. They seem to be unrigged mesh and I found that by putting them on and then hiding my Maitreya feet they fit just perfectly. I think they would be adjustable to most mesh bodies. They are highly detailed and well made and as a side gift are free with a little extra hunting time.

Strike a Pose

I’d put together a roleplay outfit not too long ago in my post here when I visited the Imaginarium event. While I was there I also picked up a free pose from Dahila that you see in the picture above. It seemed to strike the perfect mood for my roleplay gear so I added it to my post. It would make a nice addition to a photographer’s inventory!

Wasteland_002

Details, details

Roped Passions has out 6 total free side gifts as part of the Twisted Hunt. I’m only showing you 3 in this post. The other 3 were just as amazing. You’ll want to find them all! Pictured above is the free Crimson Unisex Crown as well as the free Twisted Victorian Hunters Mask, each of which is a side gift that you can get for free by hunting for that twisted cube around the Roped Passions main-store.

If you hunt some more, you’ll also find a Gothic alter (not shown), a Snarky Cube (not shown), and Gothic Mushrooms (not shown). All these prizes are fantastic and definitely worth the hunt!

Beach Therapy

Beach Therapy

I can rest anywhere…

I was told to take it easy but wasn’t told to stay home. So, I’m hitting the beach to relax and enjoy the view. From here, I can watch the waves, the boats the birds and the occasional bunny that passes by. 🙂 Today, I’m wearing more 10L finds from The Wash Cart Sale. As I passed the Emerald Couture cart, the Men’s Teal Tank Top and the  Turtles Beach Trunks  caught my eye.  At just 10L each I couldn’t pass them up.  Another Cart Sale find is the Sky Blue Summer Slip Ons from Roped Passions. I’m all about inexpensive footwear and there are several styles to choose from for just 10L each.

Tiar a new one…

I’m also wearing the latest Male FabFree group gift from Tiar. David’s Necklace is FREE to our FabFree members. All you have to do to pick up this gift is,you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s free to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

Lounging in Style…

Getting comfy can sometimes be a chore in itself. I was lucky enough to come across the Cushioned Poolside Lounger and the Poolside Umbrella for just 10L each at the EC Designs cart at The Wash. The lounger comes with many poses to find that comfy spot you’ve been seeking. Soaking up the sun never felt so good.

Kiss Me Maybe

Free Kisses Maybe_002

I was exploring The Wash sim after doing my shopping… checking out the carnival and I found a kissing booth and couldn’t resist checking it out. The pose puts you in position inside with your hands sort of over your mouth as if to say “no kisses today!” which I found amusing, but fitting because I was wearing a cute pair of “Kiss me” hawt pants from Roped Passion’s that had other ideas in mind!

Check it out!

You’ll want these hawt pants for yourself. I’ve included a picture of the front and the back, just so you can see how cute they are! I may not be handing out kisses at the kissing booth… but these hawt pants have their own ideas! And they were only 10L at the Roped Passion’s Cart at the Cart Wash Sale!

6 Pants Choices:

  • All you can eat Hawt Pants
  • Binge Watching Hawt Pants
  • In Case of Emergency Hawt Pants
  • Kiss This Hawt Pants (shown)
  • Slippery When Wet Hawt Pants
  • Spank Itself Hawt Pants

Sizes available for each:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Add a splash of color!

I wanted to add some color (and Pride) to my outfit and stopped by the Luminesse Cart to pick up the rainbow bracelets you see in my pictures. These too are only 10L and are resizeable too! I think they are a perfect addition to my outfit and highlight something that is important to me, so I was happy to find them at the Luminesse cart among the other pretty baubles! Pick up your Pride and show it off today! Of course if you just like rainbows that works too 😉

Nautically Inclined

Nautically Inclined

Ships Ahoy! Look out for land! I admit in real life I never learned to swim, but that never kept me off the boats. I’ve always had a love for boats and everything nautical! I love to fish, rather it be small ponds or deep sea fishing. And you’ll never catch me passing up a boat ride. So this outfit I ran across today, had me really smiling!

Ready to sail.

I’m ready for sailing weather, or even to sit dockside, in my new Sailing Day Outfit by Tam. It only cost me 1L and a little hunting time as part of the June Effects Hunt. I went to the Tam main-store and hunted down the little life preserver and the shorts and top were mine!

It comes in a variety of sizes including:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS- XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Worth mentioning!

It’s over the 75L limit, but I know you’ll forgive me when you see the deal that I got on my hair! I stopped by the Hairology event which began on June 10th and visited the EMO-tion’s booth. Hair at this booth is 50% off, and I picked up my new Claudia hairstyle for just 122L per pack. It was such a good deal that I wanted to share it with you, even if it was over the usual limit, in case you are a hair fanatic like moi!

Tweed and Scott Randolph

Contemplate_001

Filling up my cart…

It’s the first day of the Springtacious Cart Wash Sale and I was super excited to start filling up my own cart of goodies! I stopped by and I was quickly drawn to the Roped Passion’s display where I picked up an outfit that I fell in love with. For just 10L per piece, it was worth every penny!

Pictured above:

You see me wearing the Kuleana Tweed Top and Slacks by Roped Passion’s in the picture above. They each come separate for just 10L each and each are available in purple, brown, or black (pictured) for a bit of mix and match if you like. Your tiny 10L sum gets you all the standard sizes, a quality alpha layer, plus all the major mesh body sizes as well.

Also on the cart… SHOES!

So the shoes on the Roped Passion’s cart are actually for men. They are made to fit classic, Adam, Signature, Mesh Project, and Slink men’s feet. I found however that by hiding my Maitreya feet and adjusting the shoes a little (they are unrigged mesh), they matched my Kuleana outfit fantastically, and fit my avatar just fine. I kind of left them a touch big, but that’s because I didn’t really edit them down as much as I could (or probably should) have. If you make a copy of these (for back up) and use the edit feature to size them down, I’m sure you can get a perfect fit.
