Looking for a Warm Summer Breeze

Where Music Meets the Ocean

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s good to be back home after camping.  It was so, so cold there, and the pupster and I just had to find some summer time temperatures on SL when we got back.  It actually snowed a bit on Memorial Day.  Now for Love’s neck of the woods, that might not be so unusual, but for our part of the world, that is highly unlikely!  Fortunately, the Lighthouse Oasis sim had just what we needed, and Ambient Fashion provided the cutest summery shirt for our ocean side adventure.  I picked up this halter top as a hunt prize in the Red Diaries Hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Lovely Lavender

In addition to coming in one of my favorite colors, the Slaren Halter also features an unusual component created from four black bands connecting the shoulder strap to the neckline.  Black rimmed grommets ensure the cords stay securely fastened.  The right shoulder and the strap around the back of the neck are more traditional, so I decided to pull my hair back to show off the unique left side.  A figure-hugging fit and realistic fabric texture round out the shirt.  The designer thoughtfully included versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars inside the hunt folder, so there’s something for everyone in the package.  All you have to do to add a copy to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a book with a Red Shoe Diaries cover, and pay the 1 Linden dollar fee.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

She Don’t Know…

She Don't Know She's Beautiful

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  Ripley and I are about to set off on a camping trip, but I couldn’t leave without telling you all about a stunning formal gown that I picked up for just 2 Linden dollars as a prize in the You’re Beautiful Hunt.

She’s Beautiful

I just love the color scheme of this outfit from The Sissy Bar!  The soft lavender hue of the material is accented with a delicate floral design.  Featuring a floor length skirt that just kisses the ground, this gown will have you feeling elegant as you sweep across the dance floor.  An x-shaped detail emphasizes the gown’s waistline, while an off-the-shoulder cut allows your shoulders to soak in some sun shine (or moonlight).  Just in case you get a little chilly, the designer also included a translucent shawl to wrap around yourself.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  All you have to do to add this lovely frock to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a mirror, and pay the teensy 2 Linden dollar fee.  There’s a handy hint giver in the store to point you in the right direction.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP
  • Shawl for Classic, Mesh and Ocacin

We’re off to the mountains.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

One Step Closer to Summer

Summer Vibes

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are eager to continue catching some summer vibes here on the Baja Tides sim, so we are popping in with a quick post to share our latest hunt prize.  This week, we checked out The Four Seasons Hunt and discovered this cute tank top over at Trashed.  Featuring a pale gray ribbed background and a vibrant pink flamingo chilling amid blossoms, this top was just what I needed to chase away the cloudy skies in my part of the world.  The designer added realistic details such as a curve-hugging fit, wrinkles in the fabric and slender shoulder straps.  I love the way the top is just a bit on the short side, which allows some of my hips to catch a bit of sun.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you have to do is locate the hunt icon, a strawberry, and pay the 2 Linden dollar price.  There is a handy hint giver on the wall in the shop in case you get stumped.  It sure helped us out, although Ripley insisted that *he* knew where the berry was all the time.  He was just waiting to see if *I* could find it myself.  Silly boy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • O-Voluptuous
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Out For a Stroll

Sunday Stroll

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!  Yesterday, Ripley and I checked out the trail of the Scorching Summer Hunt and discovered this fantastic frock at Salty for just 1 Linden dollar.

It’s a Real Summer Scorcher

I really like the way the Emma dress has multiple layers of material, with a solid base fabric covered with a sheer lace layer.  Buckled, criss-cross straps add visual interest to the white color scheme.  Featuring a low neckline, a snug waist and a full skirt, this outfit is perfect for a day of shopping, but depending on the accessories you add, it’s also dressy enough for a date night.  With its short skirt, you will definitely be able to show off your legs, and you’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty.  All you need to do to add this frock to your inventory is to head on over to the Salty Main Store, locate the hunt icon, which is a rosebud, and pay one small Linden dollar.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

He’s Not Such a Bad Bunny!

Beach Day

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  It was time for another escape to the shore for Ripley and I today.  Lucky for us, Baja Tides was just a mouse click away.  If only I could escape so easily to the ocean in RL!  I’m excited to tell you all about my beachy outfit, which I picked up for just 1 Linden dollar as a hunt prize.

This Girl’s Ready to be a Beach Bunny!

The pupster and I hit the trail of the Evil Bunny Hunt 9, which is running until April 30th.  Over at Indigenous, we came across the “Nice Egg” the Evil Bunny had hidden.  I don’t know why they call him evil – after all, he provided a hint for us, which helped us out tremendously!  I am guessing it’s because he has also left some devilishly decorated “Evil Eggs” scattered about as well.  Still, I think he’s a pretty good guy!  “Beware the lillies,” he said in his hint.  Following his advice, it no time at all, I spotted the white egg sporting angel wings and a halo, paid the single Linden dollar fee, and scampered back home to open up my prize.  Nestled inside the folder was the Easter Flowers outfit, which includes the cropped top and mini skirt I’m wearing in the photo, as well as a floppy brimmed hat in a coordinating print.  With the shore breeze, I opted not to add the hat to my ensemble, but it’s there for you if you’d like to add it to your look.  I must say, it’s pretty darn cute!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Altamura Sofia
  • Ebody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I hope your work week is off to a smooth start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Moon Bunny


Moon Bunny

Hello There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog! If you’re in need of some fun activity and are looking for some awesome bargains, look no further than the Rotten Egg Hunt. It’s a lot more fabulous than it sounds. The Rotten Egg Hunt is a sim-wide hunt with well over 20 designers participating. Each designer has at least 1 and sometimes as many as 10 eggs hidden around the sim priced between 0 and 10 linden each. For this post I hunted down one of the eggs from Psycho Barbie, and the egg from Glutz. I hope you have fun with them!

The Dress – This lovely black dress with the two side slits is part of 4 total Rotten Egg Hunt prizes by Psycho Barbie. The Arcane dress comes in a few sizes, and there are four variations. This version is called “Moon.” To get the others you’ll need to find each of the 4 Psycho Barbie eggs. Each of the Psycho Barbie egg is priced at just 10 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP


+Psycho Barbie+ @ The Rotten Egg Hunt

The Mask – The slightly iridescent bunny mask Pru is wearing is the Rotten Egg Hunt prize by Glutz. This Rotten Egg Hunt prize is one of the few I came across that is free. It has straps that go over the top around the sides of the head like a fetish mask (Pru’s hairstyle covers them up), and is in the single lavender color shown. It is also without scripts making it low lag. I would definitely make a copy of it before you do any resizing, too much stretching will make the textures a little wonky.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Slow Down, World!

Slow Down, World

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  After a super busy week in RL, it was past time for a few quiet moments spent taking it easy in SL.  As Ripley cavorted on the beach at the Baja Tides sim, I plopped myself down onto an old crate perched on the sand and caught my breath.  We all need times like these, and I sure hope you find some time to relax this weekend as well.  There’s plenty of room on top of this box, so why don’t you join me while I tell you all about my latest hunt find?

That Easter Bunny Sure Likes to Play Tricks!

The pupster and I decided to check out the Bunny Hop Hunt that is currently taking place over on the Lucky Star sim.  We had heard that the old E.B. himself had hidden a bunch of colorful eggs all containing lovely prizes throughout the sim.  The price for each ranges from 0 – 25 Linden dollars.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip because it is so beautifully decorated!  Some of the eggs are easy to spot, but others will leave you scratching your head.  I had seen a preview photo of the outfit I’m wearing in my picture, and *really* wanted it for myself, so I was bound and determined not to give up.  After spending two nights searching high and low, I finally spotted the tiny purple egg tucked in a fiendishly difficult spot, but let me tell you, I just love, love, love this Nola Top and Shortie set from QE Designs!  It features a cute plaid crop top knotted over a white bustier, and pale blue jeans shorts with a coordinating pink belt.  This little number was well worth the hours spent looking high and low and the budget-friendly price of just 15 Linden dollars!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Now, I’m off to battle the crowds at my local grocery store.  It seems like everyone in town decides to shop on Sunday afternoons, too.  Do people just park their carts in the middle of the aisle in your market like they do in mine?  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Walk Lightly On The Earth

Sunrise

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I traveled down the path of the Save Earth Hunt and discovered this cute casual outfit over at The Sissy Bar.  It’s perfect for a warm spring day spent exploring the beach, and it costs just 1 Linden dollar plus a bit of time spent searching.

There is No Planet B

This hunt is all about creating awareness about Save Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22nd.  The prizes all bring to mind the saying “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle,” and are related to nature and the environment.  I just love the circular tree design on this comfy top, and the way the back is loosely tied at the top and dangles open below.  It’s just so pretty!  The gray shorts feature a coordinating leaf print in light green and blue.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items from your wardrobe for added flexibility.   I can see myself wearing this Fabulous Find over and over.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  Until next time, happy hunting!

A Boho Babe

Spring morn

Hullo there, Fabulous Readers!  I was still feeling the boho vibe when I got up this morning, so I figured it was a great time to share another of the hunt prizes I picked up while traveling down the path of The Boho Hunt.   Just like the shorts in my last post, this hunt item cost only 1 Linden dollar.

Blame It On My Gypsy Soul

The adorable top in my photo can be yours if you uncover the miniature white llama hidden in the Trashed store.  Featuring spaghetti style straps, a cropped hemline and an arrow decorated with a pretty floral and feather motif, the Boho Babe top is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  I really like its muted color scheme, so I decided to pair it with a simple pair of white capris to create a clean, casual outfit, perfect for a walk on a misty morning.  I’m sure it would look just as fantastic with jeans, shorts or a skirt.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin Classic
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!
