In Search of Spring

In Search of Spring

I went for a walk this morning in the real world, and I pretty much froze the tip of my nose off.  I plodded along, the wind buffeting me from every side, various curses rolling through my head as I felt the North Wind penetrate my feeble scarf.  So, upon my return home, I sought solace in the sunny climes of SL.  I also may have turned the heating up a bit…

Hunting Some More

One of the best parts of spring (in my humble opinion) is the appearance of a perennially amazing Easter hunt at Ricielli.  This year is no exception, with more frothy pastel concoctions than you can shake a stick at.  I nonchalantly walked through the store, picking up eggs for just 15L each, which all contain really pretty items.  I settled on numbers 15 and 17, which made a really lovely spring outfit that I could wear all over.  Ricielli is super well known for their sexy lingerie too though, so don’t miss out on those awesome items as well!

How Far Will You Go?

How Far Will You Go?OMG There are so many fantastic Easter hunts going on right now. Even I can’t get through Easter without a little bit of hunting. For example, Vision is having an Easter Hunt and the prizes are all store credit! If that’s not a reason to hunt then I don’t know what is.

The Prize

It’s true, I don’t typically hunt. Like at all. Ever. I rarely even cherry pick anymore, but for Vision store credit I will make an exception. No, I did not find all of the eggs. They really weren’t that hard to find either, so not finding them all is purely a reflection on me and my inability to hunt. BUT I found enough eggs to get this gorgeous dress called Kristine (it comes with the necklace too!) for free using my store credits! Worth it.

The Details

The Vision hunt started on April 13th and lasts until April 18th. You do have to join the store group in order to play, but it is only 18L to join (if you’re just joining the group for the first time, be sure to also check the front wall for a wide assortment of gifts). in this hunt, you are looking for 12 eggs. When you wear your group tag and click an egg they will give varying amounts of store credit, for a totally of 500L between all 12 eggs. The store credit does expire and must be used by April 23rd. And here’s a helpful hint: a notice sent to the group mentioned that all 12 eggs are in the lower floor of the store. That ought to narrow things down for you a bit!

Happy Hunting!

Swinging on Over

Swinging On Over

I’m swinging on over to Tachinni today, because there are some great prizes to be found!

More Hunting, You Say?

If you haven’t hunted enough this weekend (there is A LOT going on), then you really must head over to Tachinni, because there are 400L in store credit to be had!  Join the group for just 15L then look around for the hidden eggs, which all hold varying amounts of store credit that will all add up to 400L (there are 10 eggs in all).  I bought this top and skirt set with my findings, the top costing just 199L, and the skirt 250 – which meant I just had to pay 49L for the remaining balance.  However, there are lots of other items that are under 400L, I just really liked this outfit!  You’ve got until the 23rd to take part, and the store credit expires on May 1st, so use it before you forget about it!

Spring Gardening

Spring Gardening

Let me tell you a thing or two about me and gardening.  We don’t get along.  I like the whole “hang out in the garden and admire the fruits of my labour” bit, but everything else isn’t really up my alley.  The dirt, the squirrels who insist on decimating your work, the bugs.  Just… ugh.  Perhaps I need to be a person who has enough money to hire a gardener, so I can go and admire the fruits of THEIR labour!  Ahwell, either way, I’m hanging out in my pristine garden today, and I can categorically state that there is no dirt under my fingernails.  You can decide if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!

The Easter Hunt

There are a lot of hunts going down around the grid right now, seeing as the Easter Egg hunt is literally the reason hunts exist in SL (I am possibly exaggerating a bit here…but unless you’re a pirate, work with me…).  Over at @home and Noveny, they are doing it up in grandiose fashion with a super fun (and totally free) hunt in which each egg contains a really awesome home decor item.  I had such a fun time making my little garden getaway come to life with these free finds.  The catch is, you have to make it happen ASAP because the hunt is only running today and tomorrow.  So get over there!

Flower Power

Of course, all garden lounging requires a new outfit (Does it though, Aline? Sounds fake, but ok…).  I picked up this lovely top by Vagrant (you neeeed to see the strappy back) which is equal parts Spring and sexy.  The Vagrant group is free to join, so you’ll be getting this lovely flowered top for free.  How awesome is that?

Spring Fever

Spring Fever

I’m feeling Spring today deep down into my toes, FabFree!  Let’s get to frolicking among some flowering shrubbery while humming the Rite of Spring and searching for marshmallows in the shape of tiny animals.  Seems like the perfect time to do some questionable things, but when Spring Fever comes along, you just do what the muses tell you.

It’s Tradition!

I’m pretty sure that Safira gets in the Easter spirit every year with a bit of a pastel-themed hunt.  I’m always happy for a bit of (non-challenging) hunting, especially when I can get some really cute outfits out of it.  Safira have that in spades right now, with a whole pile of pretty dresses, lingerie, skirts, tops and more.  I went with the Mika top and Vany skirt, which had me feeling playful and coquette.  Each item on the hunt is just 15L so you can get something sweet for not too many lindens.   Just look for the eggs throughout the store!

A Million Reasons

A Million Reasons

Well this little bunny is feeling a bit at a loss for words tonight.  Could it be the pent-up need for a break?  Could it be the copious amounts of chocolate she’s trying not to consume?  Or perhaps it’s just that she’s feeling a bit sleepy, and instead of talking, she’ll get right to the freebies?  Well, whatever it is… here we go!

Orsy

Orsy Event is hosting a hunt during their current round.  All the prizes are by La Perla, and they’re all rather cute.  You’ll find plenty of lingerie on this one, and possibly a few NSFW prizes as well – just warning you!  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE top by La Perla sized for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Physique & Venus
  • FREE panties by La Perla sized for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Physique & Venus
  • FREE shoes by La Perla sized for Belleza, Maitreya & Slink
  • FREE earmuffs by La Perla

There are a few other cute prizes too, so search the event for the (not too concealed) Easter eggs.  To get all these items for free, just join the free Orsy Event group, then click on the eggs.  You can join the group by copying and pasting this code into chat:  secondlife:///app/group/3260a3ce-08df-2149-5e69-039c0e926cb7/about

Good luck, bunnies!

It’s an excellent day for a trip to an art gallery. I find that most days are, but today seems to be a particularly arty type of day.  I’ll just wander about pretending I know things about art, and maybe I’ll have one of those moments that only happens in movies where some extremely handsome and tall fellow stands beside me and comments on the brush strokes of a certain painting and we fall desperately in love.   Stranger things have happened… especially in SL!

It’s Magic!

The Free Dove is hosting a heck of a lot of fun hunting this month, with not one, but two hunts – and lots of free gifts.  The Caring Hands hunt is what I focused on, with two prizes at The Free Dove from each designer that is participating.  I was particularly taken with this pretty and somewhat holographic dress by WitchCraft.  Isn’t it cool?  To get it, just join The Free Dove group for free, then look around for the little Easter baskets which contain all the gifts.  You can find all the information about the hunts going on right HERE.

Therapy

The artwork I’m pondering so deeply (or you know, waiting for my prince Charming to appear) is free courtesy of ArTherapy.  At their location, you’ll find a little art gallery nestled in a garden, with some fun free gifts to pick up while you’re there.  You can also visit their coffee shop, Brewed Awakening (such a good name) next door for some other gifts too…and of course, some coffee.  Join the free group and you can get these two canvases to decorate your abode.

Ooh, here comes a candidate!  How’s my hair?

Easter is hopping closer and closer, and with that a great many Easter Egg hunts move into the forefront.  I was lucky to get alerted about the Aurelias Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Market, which is a really cute mini event and hunt nestled in the gorgeous Aurelias sim.  There’s so much to explore, and it’s a really nice sim to spend some time in.  You MUST check it out!

Egg Hunt!

The Aurelias Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Market opens today, and runs until April 20th.  You’ll find some really pretty and affordable finds at the landing point on the carts, plus if you wander the sim in search of the Easter Eggs, you’ll get lots of prizes, all for under 10L.  You can see all the prizes and items right HERE.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 75L Hair by Exile in a full fatpack of colours, with style HUD
  • FREE Daisy cheek tape by Schadenfreude
  • 1L Nail polish by Alaskametro with appliers for Maitreya, Omega and Slink (check out the closeup below!)

What will you find?

Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog

EBP 12 Hunt 2022 4

I was out & about hunting Easter eggs since it is that time of the year. There was this HUGE rabbit with a pile of really pretty eggs so I grabbed a few. Little did I know I’d awakened the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog! Shades of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

You think someone should put a sign near him? One does have to be careful when roaming the sims of SL. Maybe I’ll buy a guidebook next time.

Good or Bad? Have it Either Way

The Evil Bunny Hunt 12 kicked off on April 3rd. It’ll run until April 30th. Some of the participating designers have a “Nice” egg; others have an “Evil” egg while a few have both eggs. All of the eggs are priced at $1L.

I hopped on over to [M]elange to search for both eggs. Once found I had a major decision to make: Angelic (Nice) or Devil!cious (Evil)? Being evil can be so much fun. Especially when you have a very sexy outfit.

Devil!cious is a complete outfit consisting of a top, thong, sleeves, horns, 2 tails, hoof boots, and a pitchfork. One of the tails is a “micro mesh” but I opted for the longer mesh tail. The hoof boots are really cute & fun to wear. You can’t go wrong with this outfit costing only $1L.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody Classic & Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink HG & Physique

Posing

Another stop on the Evil Bunny Hunt 12 is Something New. Both an Evil & a Nice egg are hiding in the store. Since I was being Evil today I chose that prize egg. The Evil Bunny! Run! pose makes me giggle. In addition to the scene you get a carrot to munch on and a basket to put all your eggs in.

Spring Ride

Ah, Spring!  The sweet scent of flowers in the air and the warmth of the rays of the sun, so long absent are back to warm my bones.  Time to hop on the bike and head out for a bit of a hunt!

Witchwood!

Over at Witchwood (the home of Petite Mort and Oubliette), their annual Easter Hunt has just taken off.  That’s great news if you’re looking for extremely cute casuals all for under 20L.  I am so in love with this bee tee that I may never take it off again.  The jeans are just the right amount of slouchy, with the perfect hint of floral, and I also picked up these excellent sneakers that are great for pedaling about in nature.  The Petite Mort & Oubliette Easter Hunt runs until April 17th, and there are lots of lovely items to hunt for.  There’s a free Easter Egg basket to pick up too, plus the entire store is 50% off.  Check out the hunt key below!
