The Secrets of Second Life

The Secrets of Second Life
Sometimes Second Life can toss out some downright weird things at you.  I’m sure you all have a list of odd things you’ve seen and experienced inworld that are not necessarily repeatable in a PG-13 kind of environment.  Or really, any environment… If you’re not a resident of SL, it’s hard to describe some of the things that are normal to us denizens of the grid.  Sometimes though, you get to participate in something entirely weird but super fun.  And that’s what I’m about to share today!

I’m Sorry…WHAT are we looking for?

Our friends over at Second Life Syndicate are celebrating their 3rd Anniversary in the most THEM way possible – a hunt for cute little poops in a sewer.  Yeap, you heard me!  When SLS is putting together an event, you can always expect it to be something a little out of the ordinary.  There’s a massive sewer maze set up right now, and if you walk around looking for the little poops, each one contains a completely free gift.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE Lingerie by Varonis sized for Maitreya
  • FREE Backdrop by Varonis
  • FREE Stool by Fetch

By the way, when you’re at the starting point of the maze, you can also pick up some very on-theme and completely free poop scoopers that may just make you feel a bit better about picking up scat.  You never know!

Happy Anniversary Second Life Syndicate!

Get it, Gurl

Get it, Gurl

I’m just settling in to get a bit of work done.  You know, the kind that you put off until you really can’t anymore.  That calls for a mug of tea, and a slogan t-shirt that will kick any and all doubts of being in charge to the curb.  Let’s do this!

Scandalous

If you’re in the mood for yet another quick and painless hunt, then Scandalize has just the thing for you!  They’ve got a massive selection of cute and sexy spring outfits priced at just 15L each.  You can grab these goodies by finding the pretty little flowers that are strewn all around the store.  I picked up the Sanara top and Nessiha jeans that go perfectly together, and are totally helping me get my posterior in gear.  You’ve got until April 11th to take part!

A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

Happy Easter, FabFree!  To all those who celebrate, I hope that you enjoy this season of renewal and rebirth.  Oh, and of course… chocolate.   I’m basking happily in the Springtime sunshine and breathing in the fresh air that has wafted in our direction.  With a pocket full of jellybeans, let’s get down to it!

Hunting Time

I seem to be doing a lot of hunting these days, and though sometimes hunts can leave me feeling a bit frustrated and dizzy, I’m happy to report that this Easter hunt at Safira is pretty easy and fun.  I picked up my lovely lavender top and blue gingham skirt there, and each egg only cost me 15L each.  Just look around for the little turquoise eggs before April 11th when it comes to a close.

Yay! Shoes!

I’m always excited when there’s a new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  They’re celebrating their 6th anniversary with this really pretty pair of frilly flats in a full fatpack of colours (that was a lot of f’s!).  The counter at Miss Chelsea is groaning with super gorgeous gifts, and you’ll be able to access this one (and the rest) when you join their group for 100L.  Yay!

The Hunt

The Hunt

I’m totally in the mood to hunt for things today, whether it be eggs, chocolate or even my mind…I’m ready for a bit of a search.  Luckily for me, and for anyone else who is ready to seek high and low for all sorts of wonderous things, I’ve got the news you’ve been waiting for!

Fortune 500

Muchly exciting for lovers of the hunt is the fun Easter egg hunt going on at Tachinni right now!  If you join their group for just 15L, you can take part in a hunt for store credit. There is 500L in credit dispersed around the store in 12 little pastel eggs.  The more eggs you find, the more credit you’ll accumulate.  With the 500L I picked up, I bought the Miriam top and skirt, which as with all Tachinni clothing is extremely well made and rather sexy!  You’ve got until April 11th to find the eggs, and until the 16th to use the credit.

Eggstravaganza!

Afterparty are taking part in the Eggstravaganza hunt!  It’s not a traditional hunt per se, more of a hunt mixed with a try your luck type of thing.  You search for the golden egg, then once you’ve located it, say “Eggstravaganza!” in local chat (don’t forget the exclamation mark, and leave out the quotation marks!).  Then if your magic is strong, you’ll be able to get the prize delivered for free.  If not, you can try again the next day, or just buy it for 50L if you can’t live without.  I got these awesome neon bunny ears and they won’t be coming off till all the eggs have been found! You’ve got until April 11th.

Have fun!

Zephyr

Zephyr

I was looking at paintings and got all inspired (again) by Botticelli and his personification of the wind.  If you look at the quite lovely Allegory of Spring, you’ll find a little blue fellow blowing in the warm winds of Spring.  Today, I’m channeling the soft breezes of Springtime and all their glory.

Hunt it Out

I mentioned yesterday that there’s a hunt going on at the Cies Island sim, with several stores participating with free gifts hidden in little pastel eggs all over the place.  Today, I’m showing you one of the free items I picked up at Blackjack!  This dress and fur stole are, as I mentioned, completely free and quite lovely.  The deep green is making me think of rolling green lawns and the fur will surely keep me warm until it gets just a bit hotter out!  You’ve got until April 11th to take part in this fun hunt.

Modern Spring Goddess

Modern Spring Goddess

It’s time to bask in the magic of Springtime delights, my dear readers!  That means find a cute dress, hop on the bicycle, get something tasty and hang out in a park.  I can’t possibly think of what I’d rather be doing in this lovely weather that happens to have appeared in my part of the world, so it’s time to take advantage.

Yummy and Plummy

I headed over to Shanti for this sweet dress.  It’s all sorts of Spring magic to me – the boho feel, the purple tones… love it!  To get yours, just join the Shanti group for 50L and click on the gift box.  You’ll find a few other sweet gifts there too, so don’t miss out on them!

Clutter my Life

You may or may not have heard, but there’s a super fun Easter egg hunt going on at the Cies Island sim.  Most of the stores are participating, and my first stop was Tentacio.  I have always adored their penchant for fun and sweet clutter.  My inventory is pretty full of their awesome creations!  You can get all sorts of goodies there by clicking on the pastel eggs hiding around the store.  I got the shoes, drink, bicycle and clutter you see on the ground there, all for free!  There are piles of other free gifts in the boxes too, so you’re sure to find something you love.

The Cies Island egg hunt is running until April 11th!

Moody in Neon

Moody in Neon

Monday has got me feeling a bit all over the place today.  One minute I’m happy, the next I’m…not as happy!  Anyway, I’m channeling all my emotions into my lewk today, and I’ve got some eggies to keep me company.  Because, misery (and euphoria, and complacency…) loves company (and eggs)!

Parfait

In my meanderings, I came across some lucky boards at Parfait.  They’ve got a very Kawaii vibe going on, and they have me feeling comfy to escape my malaise.  It’s always nice to look comfy and cute all at the same time, a feat that often escapes us mere mortals.  The dress and layered top are free for all when your letters come up, and so are the cute socks!   No need to join a group, just have a bit of patience.  Thanks Parfait!

Afterparty

You guys know I love me some Afterparty.  The neon revolution is in full swing when you visit their store, and they always aim to bring a bit of life and light to everyone.  There’s a fun Easter egg hunt going on at the shop right now, and it’s kind of a mix of Easter, Halloween and Goth set in an atmospheric graveyard.  Take a walk through said graveyard (outside the store) and look for the 6 different eggs – each one has 8 different coloured eggs inside.   To take part, just join the Afterparty group for 10L, and then hunt away.  (There are lots of great group gifts there for you to pick up too, while you’re at it!  You’ve got until April 11th to take part.

Have fun, and keep those emotions in check!

Fraternal Twins
Since Arielle made her grand entrance on the FabFree stage back in January, her and I have been finding all these magical little details about each other that are the same.  Our conversations go something like “wait, you like *insert random thing here*? ME TOO!”.  It happens at least once per conversation, and we’ve discovered all sorts of things about each other (journaling! Disney! glitter! making up random songs and singing them at inopportune times!).  Anyway, we banded together today and had a drink and a giggle (or as Arielle said – I looked like I was giving her advice about something) and bring you some more last minute finds from the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt.

Arielle

This lovely green dress Arielle has got on is the FREE prize from Glitterati by Sapphire on the FabFree St. Patty’s Day hunt.  Just look for the little rainbow horseshoes and it’s yours!  I think Arielle looks absolutely lovely in it, like she’s about to skip through a field!

  • XS-XL with an Alpha Layer

Aline

I always err towards the darker looks when I’m putting together an outfit (and Arielle loves a hippie style – so no twinning there today), and this dress from Harambee did just the trick for our outing.  It will set you back just 5L, and it’s rather easy to find if you’re standing at the landing point!  All money spent on items at Harambee goes directly to charity, so you’ll also feel good about the money you spend there.

The Peaceful Place

The Peaceful Place

Happy Saturday FabFree!  It’s time to carve out a little relaxing space to chill out in.  It’s the last day of our lovely FabFree St. Patty’s Day hunt, so if you haven’t had a chance yet to take part, you’ve got today to pick up all the things that speak to your soul!  I’m going to try to show off some of the things you might have missed today.  Please show these awesome designers some love!

Stop 1

My pretty and serene landscape has been designed with the help of 3rd Eye Perceptions.  They have really done a great job putting together a beautiful little set of items that will make any space pop.  The field of clovers are 5L, and the golden and quite mystical fountain and the floating butterflies are completely free.  They really gave me a peaceful feeling when I set them all out!  You’ll find all the prizes in the main lobby of the store.

Stop 2

The lovely painting you see nestled on the steps of my she-shed (ehehe) is an original by Cwtch!  Seren Cwtch puts a lot of love into the creations in her store, and this pretty painting really had me feeling happy due to the colours, and a bit thirsty too, if you catch my drift!  You can get this prize over at the Cwtch mainstore for just 2L!

Final Stop!

Arielle took these lovely photos of the prizes from The Home Store.  This store is a fantastic little discovery, I’m so glad they joined us on our hunt!  There are so many lovely decor items, and you can get this pretty buckets filled with clovers nestled on a shelf, as well as the potted plant below for just 5L each.  So lovely!

Again, today is the last day for our hunt, so do make sure you’re getting all the items you’ve got your heart set on.  You can see all our prizes HERE.

Also, do you have any suggestions for next time? We want to hear it!  Please send a notecard inworld to Aline Passiflora.  We want to know your thoughts.

You See Me Rollin’

You See Me Rollin'

There’s something infinitely 80’s and infinitely summer about roller skating outfits.  Two things I enjoy thoroughly!  I’m all about new wave music, bright sunshine, and general laissez-faire attitudes.  Throw in a bit of bubblegum and fizzy drinks (probably not at the same time though) and you’ve got the recipe for a very happy Aline.

Sexy!

My sexy little roller skating outfit is completely and entirely free, and I’m living for it!  I picked it up at Miix Event as they’re having one of their famous little hunts.  Just join the Miix Event group for free, then hunt for the little ice cream cones that are hiding around the event.  I picked up the tank top, shorts, ice cream cone and even the roller skates, socks and armbands (these last two come with appliers for Maitreya, Belleza and Omega, as well as System Layers).  I super love the roller skates because they actually animate your avatar to skate when you’re moving!  Soooo good.
