This is My Song

This is My Song

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share another of the prizes that Ripley and I discovered at the Country Music Life Hunt which is currently running over at Brii Underground.  All in all, there are 10 complete outfits awaiting discovery in the store for just 6 Linden dollars each.  Since the event runs until September 30th, there’s still plenty of time for you do do some hunting of your own.

Call Me a Pollyanna, Do

My entire outfit from the tip of my cowboy hat down to my buckled high heel boots comes all neatly packaged inside prize box #08 in the hunt.  Featuring a three quarter length knotted shirt layered over a black bra and worn denim shorts, the Pollyanna outfit will have you all set to enjoy a late summer September day in the country.  The yoke and cuffs on the top are decorated with a wild west revolver print for that added cowgirl touch.  Faded denim shorts ride low on your waist and show off a bit of skin.  The boots come with slouchy socks to keep your tootsies plenty warm.  Both the socks and the bra are added with an Omega friendly applier.  Also included, but not worn in my photo is a make up layer and black bandana.  You get everything you need for this adorable ensemble all for the low price of just six Linden dollars and the time it takes you to seek out the hunt object.  Now that’s quite a deal!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Sunday Siesta

Siesta

Hello there, Fabulous Readers…. don’t mind us…….Ripley and I are just having a bit of a siesta before we head off to run errands this afternoon.  The good thing about three day weekends?  You get to lounge around an extra day and take it easy.  The bad thing?  Both the work week and the next weekend feel SUPER short!  I am finding myself wondering just where this weekend went.  Does that ever happen to you?

Lazy Sunday Morning

Lucky for me, I didn’t have to work too hard to put together my outfit for today.  The talented (and generous) designer over at Brii Underground thoughtfully tucked *everything* (and I do mean everything) I’d need all into one neat package.  From head to toe, hat to boots, bandana to bracelets, I picked up my entire ensemble as a prize in the Country Music Life Hunt, which is currently running over at the Brii Underground store.  I blogged about another fantastic prize in this hunt {HERE}, and just like my last outfit, this one only cost me 6 Linden dollars and a bit of time scouring the store.  Although there is no version for classic avatars, the package contains styles for multiple mesh avatar bodies.  It even included sunglasses and Omega appliers for make up and a tattoo that I opted not to wear for my photo.  I really like the soft color scheme and casual style of the Cassie Country Style Outfit!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, those groceries aren’t going to put themselves into the cart all on their own, and I promised the pupster I’d whip up a double batch of Ripley Snacks to thank him for all his help along the hunt path.  We’d better get a move on.  Until next time, happy hunting!

It’s The Country Life for Me!

On the Fence

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, I opened the closet where I keep Ripley’s harness to retrieve another item, and he got *super* excited like he always does.  He jumped up and down, stared at the harness, whined a bit, and would not remove his head when I tried to close the door.  I wasn’t planning to go hunting, but when Rip gets an idea in his one track mind, I’ve learned it’s best to go with the flow.  I’m sure glad I did because the Kat/Rip duo discovered my entire outfit from cowboy hat to boots – and only spent 6 little Linden dollars in the process.

She’s a Little Bit Country

The Country Music Life Hunt is running at Brii Underground, and it features ten themed outfits, all for just 6 Linden dollars each.  All you have to do is wander throughout the shop, and keep your eyes peeled for the hunt icon – a rearing horse.  Since they are good sized objects, it didn’t take us long to complete the entire hunt in one evening.  There’s even a hint note card for an added boost.  The Suellen outfit I’m wearing happens to be item number 10, and my favorite one out of the bunch.  Featuring a denim romper with dark calico accents, this little number will have you all set up for an afternoon working on the farm, or just a casual day out and about.  A buttoned center section, pockets and rolled up hems on the shorts are some of the special additions that really lend a country flair to this darling outfit.  Tights, boots, a wide brimmed cowgirl hat, and a knotted bandanna completed my look.  Sunglasses and make up are also tucked inside the package, but I decided not to wear them in my photo.  You’ll find classic as well as mesh body versions in the prize package, so the Suellen Romper is sure to fit a wide variety of avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers)
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink (Hourglass, Physique)
  • TMP
  • Tonic (Curvy, Fine)
  • Tights for classic plus appliers for Maitreya, Omega, Slink
  • Boots (includes foot shaper and alpha for classic avatars)
  • Sunglasses
  • Make Up Omega Applier for Catwa Head Jessica

Phew!  That’s a whole bunch of items all tucked carefully into one hunt prize!  And you get them all for just 6 Linden dollars, plus a bit of time searching around.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Watching the Waves Roll In

Watching the Waves Roll In

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Rip and I are just popping in with a quick post to share a time-sensitive hunt gift with you.  Gavin has shown you a couple of the Men Only Hunt Prizes in his posts {HERE} and {HERE}.  My top today is another one of the free goodies you can scoop up as you follow the trail of this hunt…. but don’t delay because the MOH ends at 8am on August 18th.

Casual Comfort

The coral colored button down Vivien shirt from A&D Clothing oozes casual comfort with its untucked style and last button unfastened.  I really like the detail in the white stripes and the pushed up sleeves.  In case you are aiming for a more refined look, a HUD is included in the package that allows you to select a tucked version, however, it didn’t work with the particular jeans I pulled on before leaving the house.  I was in a free spirited mood, so it was all good.  The box includes versions for popular mesh bodies as well as one for classic avatars, so it will fit a variety of SL residents.  Best of all, it’s free!  All you need to invest is a bit of time searching around, and honestly, it wasn’t really that hard to find the black mustache hunt icon hidden in the shop.

Versions Included:

  • Classics (one size – includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until next time, happy hunting!

Meh, Whatever!

Meh, Whatever

Hello Fabulouses!  Rip and I continued with our hunting spree this weekend – this time along the Meh, Whatever Hunt trail.  With prizes set to sale for just 1L each, this event runs until August 31.  There is quite a variety in the hunt gifts since the theme for designers was to create whatever they wanted.  You can get a preview of what’s available by visiting the Pounce Hunts web page here.  You’ll be looking for a red and black box with question marks.

Pretty as a Blooming Dahlia

When I saw the preview photo of the Macy Silk Dress from C!L Boutique, I knew she was destined for my inventory!  With a sleeveless design featuring cute cutouts on the shoulder straps, a gathered waistline, and a just-above-the-knee length skirt, this frock is ideal for these warm, dog days of summer.  I just love the soft pink color and the detail put into the stitching.  Since the package contains sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you’ll find a fit just right for you.  For only one Linden dollar and a bit of time searching, this was a very budget friendly addition to my inventory.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

It’s Just So Cute!

Island Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post from me to share a casual “take it easy” day outfit.  And boy, after the past day in RL, I sure need it!  I had recently purchased a new car after driving the same one for 12 years.  I have had it for 2 weeks, and someone hit it in the parking lot, leaving quite a bit of damage, and no note to claim responsibility.  What a bummer!  At least I could escape to this spectacular island in SL, and chill in my new jumpsuit.  The best part (since I now have to pay my insurance deductible – ouch!) is the outfit was completely free!

Another Dumpster Diving Find

In my last post, I shared a date night outfit with a coordinating men’s suit (it’s here if you missed it).  Stan and I picked them up as part of the Dumpster Diving Hunt that is running until August 31st.  Since we had such great luck at our first stop, Ripley and I decided to continue on down the trail.  At Fukin Cute, we quickly discovered the mini dumpster concealed in the shop and I excitedly teleported home to open the free package.  Nestled inside, the sporty Kardashi jumpsuit promised relaxation and comfort.  With its semi sheer tank style top, gathered waist, and long sleek pants, this little number will have you decked out in style.  The designer even included a HUD that allows you to alter the color of the eye catching stripes that run the entire length of the suit.  I opted for the purple combo, but you have 5 other choices if purple and pink is not your cup of tea.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Sprinkling of Gold Dust

Gold Dust

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While checking out the Dumpster Diving Hunt with Ripley, I picked up a really cute mini dress perfect for a date night, and happened to notice there was a male prize in the shop as well.  So, I woke Stan up from his early evening nap, and led him over to Mishmash Fusion.  It’s hard to believe we found such classy clothes dumpster diving, isn’t it?

Hers

I am modeling the strappy Starseed Mini Dress in the color Star Dust.  This little number will hug your curves, but has a skirt with enough fullness to make moving around a snap.  There is a “v” shaped notch in the hemline which adds visual interest.  I really, really like the spattering of golden glitter on the outside edges of the frock!  In the back, the top of the dress sits just below your shoulder blades.  Best of all, items in the Dumpster Diving Hunt are completely free, so all it cost was a bit of time searching around.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

His

Stan is sporting the coordinating Etienne Suit (also free from Mishmash Fusion).  It features a black jacket, a button down shirt complete with a black tie, creased trousers, and a stardust sprinkled vest, which complements my dress beautifully.  The outfit is an all-in-one, so you can’t wear the individual components separately, but I think Stan looks quite dashing!  Versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies are tucked inside the package, so there’s something for everyone in here.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We are off to see what else we can uncover in the Dumpster Diving Hunt.  Since it runs until August 31st, we still have plenty of time.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Traveling Around the Grid With My Pal

I've Got the Blues

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  When I saw all the great prizes Love has been discovering on the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt (HERE and HERE), I knew it was time to fit Ripley up with his tracking harness and hit the trail myself.  Our first stop was at one of my favorite stores, Horr Menswear.  It took some time and effort, as well as the motivation of some crunchy Ripley Snacks, but soon enough, we discovered the cheerful yellow and red hot air balloon (and by “we” I mean “he” – thank you, pal).  For just 1 Linden dollar (and the cost of a batch of biscuits), I added a great looking top to my wardrobe.

I’ve Got The Blues

Well, not really.  How could I be blue with a great shirt like this?  Featuring realistic folds and a button down v-neck, this shirt is perfect for a gray summer day with a bit of drizzle in the air.  Its three quarter length sleeves provide that added extra protection from the elements when you need it, but aren’t so long you are over heating when the sun finds its way through the clouds again.  Sometimes I have a hard time finding shirts that don’t clip at the waist and allow my pants to poke through, but the fit of the Summit Shirt was ideal.  I really like the turned down collar and the added trim at the waist and cuffs – they add just the right finishing touch.  Best of all, this bluesy top can be yours just one little Linden dollar.  Hey if you’re lucky, you won’t have to provide a tray of Ripley snacks either 🙂

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • David
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink

Until next time, happy hunting!

Ahhhh, Those Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days

Hi Fabulouses!  Now, this is the life…… just lazing around, soaking up some rays, and getting lost in a good book.  What could be better?  Well, how about doing all of the above in an outfit that cost you only 1 little Linden dollar?  Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Sunflowers and Sunshine

My entire outfit, from the jaunty floral top, to the button fly shorts, to the tips of my sunflower dappled sneakers, cost only one Linden dollar and a small investment of time spent searching in the Dog Days of Summer Hunt.  With slender shoulder straps, and pretty ruffled layers, this shirt is sure to brighten even the most cloudy day with its large, cheerful sunflowers scattered across a butter yellow background.  Worn black shorts adorned with a smiling sun on the back pocket help round out the look.  Finally, tip toe sneakers featuring a coordinating pattern add the perfect finishing touch.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you have to do is teleport on over to The Sissy Bar, and locate the hunt object (which is a small dog house) concealed within the store.  The hunt runs through July 31st, so you still have plenty of time left to do some sleuthing of your own.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Eve Mesh Body in P and S
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

And now, I shall return to avoiding any and all housework reading my novel.  Until next time, happy hunting!
