Call It Serendipity

Alexandra 2

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I did some more sleuthing, and have another hunt item to share with you today.  Serendipity has hidden Alexandra, this gorgeous, formal gown as their prize for The Best of You Hunt.  Featuring shimmering black fabric, gleaming decorative trim, and a daring leg slit, this full length frock is sure to draw all eyes your way as you enter the room.  I especially love the criss-cross straps on the back, which allow for a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   It’s so elegant, yet full of sex appeal.  Best of all, you’ll only have to part with one little Linden dollar to add Alexandra to  your inventory.

Seek and You Will Find

photo_006

Hello there Fabulouses!  When I saw Carson’s posts {HERE} and {HERE}about the What’s Your Category Hunt, I decided to check out the female prizes up for grabs.  Ripley and I teleported over to  Ambient Fashion, and although it took some determination and many trips around the store to locate the hunt icon, the Cassandra shirt was well worth our investment of time and one little linden dollar.

Nevertheless, She Persisted

When I first attempted to locate the small black bag tied with a red ribbon, I just couldn’t find it.  I wandered throughout the store, upstairs and downstairs, and after quite some time, I gave up in frustration.  However, later while looking at the hunt prizes on the preview page, my eyes were drawn over and over to the knotted Cassandra top.  I loved the raspberry and purple tones, and became determined to add the long sleeved shirt to my inventory.  So….I returned to Ambient and searched again.  I’m so glad I did!  The satiny texture of the fabric, the realistic folds, and the dangling ties all combine to make the perfect casual cropped top and, at only 1 little Linden dollar, the price was just right!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Applier for Isis, Curvy, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus

That Look in His Eye

As I put the finishing touches on this blog post, a certain canine someone tapped my leg with his paw, and stared longingly at his tracking harness.  I think he is enjoying the challenge of tracking down hunt gifts to share with our readers.  We’ll hit the trail again, and hopefully be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Wrapped in a Warm Glow

Embrace Your Inner Orange
Hello Fabulouses! Feeling quite lucky after our last two finds in Brii Underground’s 1L Surf Girl Hunt, Ripley and I returned once more to see what else we could uncover. Thanks to the pupster’s talented nose, we came away with yet another complete outfit. Big grin!

Orange is the Happiest Color

Inside the clam shell, I discovered the bright, cheerful Lina outfit.  With a handkerchief-style, sleeveless crop top and shorts in the same vibrant pattern, this jaunty outfit is sure to leave you with lighthearted spirits and a bounce in your step.  Coordinating sandals for slink flat feet in a matching orange tone complete the look.  I love the batik print and found this ensemble perfect for a day of fun in the sun.  One added plus is that the appliers for the top and shorts are separate, which allows for the possibility of mixing and matching to create additional combinations.

Orange is the Happiest Color

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh shorts and top appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Fitmesh top and shorts for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh top and shorts for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha Layers for classic avatars
  • Sandals for flat feet in a perfectly coordinating shade

Still Plenty of Time

The Surf Girl Hunt at Brii Underground runs through February 28th, so you still have have plenty of time to scoop up some complete outfits for yourself for only 1L each.  All the prizes Ripley and I ferreted out in this hunt were fabulous, and the shells were really not that difficult to locate.  I highly encourage you to head on over to Brii Underground and do some sleuthing yourself.   You won’t be disappointed!  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

High Tides And Good Vibes

High Tides n Good Vibes

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  After my last post {HERE}, Ripley and I returned to Brii Underground’s Surf Girl Hunt and did some more sleuthing.  As a youngster, I loved collecting seashells, and this hunt revived childhood memories of trips to the shore with my family.  Under my parents’ watchful eyes, I would traipse up and down the beach, plastic pail in hand, gathering my briny “treasures.”

A Casual Outfit You Will Treasure

After I pried open the clam shell from Brii Underground, I uncovered the Leidiane Beach Outfit, which was perfect for a day of beach combing.  A pair of denim shorts and an island themed, cropped t-shirt, complete with palm trees, gulls, and crashing waves form the basis of the costume.  To ward off the brisk ocean breezes, a dark blue, plaid over shirt completes the look.  This is definitely the type of clothing I would choose for a weekend get away in real life – comfortable and carefree.  Since I have a habit of wading out into the water to gather the perfect mollusk for my collection, I chose to slip on flip flops rather than the light blue platform sneakers which are part of the hunt gift.  For only 1 little Linden dollar, you get a complete look packed inside that tiny shell!

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh outfits for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS – XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Leidiane Platform Sneakers (not shown)
  • Omega applier with make up for Catwa head (not shown)
  • Optional light (not shown)

Sadly, those precious days with my parents are now only in the past.  Lost in memories and nostalgia as I listened to the crashing ocean waves, I was glad to have my loyal pupster by my side.  When I am feeling blue, there is no greater comfort than the silent, devoted companionship of my sweet boy.  Until my next post, fabulous readers, happy shopping hunting!

Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound

Hello there Fabulouses!  The beginning of the month means new hunts have rolled in; Ripley and I donned our detective hats, and did some sleuthing for you for today’s post.  Brii Underground Wear is hosting the Surf Girl Hunt from February 1st – 28th with 10 hunt gifts concealed in sea shells scattered around the store.  Each shell is priced at one linden and contains an entire outfit.  1L for a complete costume from clothes to footwear?  Count me in!

Meet Me at The Beach

The first mollusk we uncovered contained the Itapema outfit.  With a sheer, flowing, sleeveless jacket layered over a crop top, brightly hued capri-style leggings, and glittering golden sandals, you will be ready for a day of beach combing.  As soon as I saw the jacket on my avatar, I pictured the long hem fluttering in a gentle sea breeze as I strolled along the sand.  I really like how the muted hue of the top and jacket is livened up by the colorful stripes on the pants.  The metallic sheen on the heels included in the prize box echoes the golden decorations on the top, and really pulls the entire outfit together.

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Golden sandals
  • Make up for classic avatars and an Omega make up applier for Catwa mesh heads (not worn in my picture)

More Prizes Yet to Come…

With 9 more hunt items to ferret out, Ripley and I won’t be “homeward bound” for some time.  We have our work cut out for us, but he’s already tugging on the leash with *that* look in his eyes.  I have a feeling it won’t be too long before we return with another outfit to share with you.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping hunting!

Riding in A Wonderland of Snow

Snapshot_002
Is there a better way to spend a sunshiney winter day than bouncing around in the back of a horse drawn sleigh with a big comfy blanket? I don’t know… I did have a fantastic time spending the day yesterday hunting down little free globes for the Peace on Earth Hunt.  There might have been a big comfy blanket involved in that too!  I suppose both are near the top of my list.  You know, now that I think about it… All of my favourites might be centered around big comfy blankets ;).

Of course the list of great prizes in this hunt is super long and over the next month, I am sure you will see a ton of posts for POE items, but today I am donning two free prizes that helped put together my comfy and casual winter day outfit.

Entice:  Judas Boots

The Entice judas Boots come with a 6 colour texture change hud and an alpha layer if you need it.  These warm slouchy belted boots are adjustable to help you fit them over pants as they come with a resize HUD.  These are a great free winter staple for any girl’s inventory!

MOoH!: Katia Hoodie

The back of the Katia Hoodie at MOoH! is actually what made me jump up and say “HEY, I must show that right away”, because it says “LOVE” across the upper back in red.  I rarely pass up an opportunity like that lol.  The front is just as cute with the plaid shirt peeking out of the snuggly zipped hoodie.  In the folder you will find XXS-L mesh sizes and a co-ordinating alpha layer in case you need it.

Happy hunting!  Remember you are looking for an earth globe hunt icon!

Fae Maiden on a Winter’s Eve

Winter Fae 4

Happy late-Monday, Fabulouses!  I couldn’t head off to bed without sharing our latest Fabulous Find with you.  Yesterday, Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the trail on the Fantasy Cream V Hunt.  For only 1L each, you can seek out prizes with a Medieval/Fantasy flair. The event started on November 18th and runs through December 18th, so there is plenty of time to don your Sherlock Holmes cap, and round up some goodies for yourself.  With 34 stops on this hunt, there are plenty of gifts to be discovered.

Winter Fae Maiden

At Beyond Persuasion Designs, Ripley and I scouted out this gorgeous formal number for just one little linden dollar. The bodice of the Winter Eve’s Guardian Fae Anise gown features poinsettia flowers embroidered in gold thread, and the skirt has glimmering white panels alternating with foresty green.  Long, fur trimmed sleeves, which are optional, keep your arms from experiencing chilly breezes.  Although I usually don’t partake in role play in Second Life, I could see this gown coming in very handy for a Medieval/Fantasy sim or for holiday parties.  It is also lovely just for roaming around and looking beautiful!

What’s Included:

  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Rose and holly hair adornment
  • Optional sleeves with separate alpha

Winter Fae 3

I’ve included this close up picture to showcase the holly and rose hair piece that is enclosed with the hunt prize.  I thought it added a festive touch to the outfit, just perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  In this shot, you can also get a good look at my nail polish, which is another 1L find.  Leap of Faith is offering this Slink manicure/pedicure set as a 1L Christmas gift in their Marketplace store.  I brushed on the gradient red to green glitter, but the package also includes 5 other polish options.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post.  Ripley and I are off to seek out new Fabulous Finds to share with you.  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping hunting!
