Last One In’s a Rotten Egg (Hunt)

Shadow
Hello Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I have a time sensitive, sultry outfit to share with you today, so I’m going to jump right in to the details.  This stunner of a mini dress from [Witchcraft] can be yours for just 5L as part of the Rotten Egg Hunt (hence the title of this post) that is taking place on the Lanisha sim.  The hunt runs only until April 28th, so there are just a few days left to skip over to the sim, and collect some fabulous finds.  Over 30 stores are participating in the hunt, and the prizes, which cost anywhere from 1-5L, are scattered throughout the sim.  This frock features a halter style neckline with a circular adornment on the bodice, and rows of silvery sequins, which trace your curves.  Sheer on the edges, but opaque in all the right places, this dress is super sexy.  Its asymmetrical hemline adds visual interest.  Mesh body as well as Standard versions are included, but there is no alpha layer.  The package also includes the shoes in my photo.  I really love the added touch of the bows which sit just above ankle height in these heels.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Standard Large Avatar
  • Standard Small Avatar
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Sweet April Showers

April Showers

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  While out on our evening jaunt that I mentioned in my last post, the pupster and I decided to check out the April Showers Hunt.  I am so glad we did because over at C!L Boutique, we discovered a gorgeous gown in a lovely soft teal shade, called “rain.”  Let me tell you, this stunner is well worth the small 1L price!

Ready for Dancing in the Rain

With an empire waist and a full length skirt, this frock will have you ready for formal events.  The bodice features a whimsical spiral design which draws the eyes upward to your bare shoulders.  If the evening is chilly or April showers begin to fall, don’t worry, because the generous designer tucked a cloak and a Victorian style umbrella into the package to shield you from the elements.  I opted not to wear them for my photo, but they add a vintage appeal to the outfit.   Also included (but not worn for my picture) a sheer veil can be worn over the skirt, which is quite pretty.  With classic and mesh body versions, this dollarbie hunt prize is a perfect addition to any girl’s wardrobe.  The April Showers Hunt runs until April 30th, and offers a myriad of prizes, all for 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

No, Really, I’ve Been Spring Cleaning All Morning!

Sunday Morning

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Honestly, I have been busy working on organizing the garage all morning!  I’m just in the middle of one of my rare breaks.  Bruiser, here, wandered over from next door, and I had to pause, give him a long scritch between his ears, and slip him a Ripley snack or two.  Good thing the Pupster was off on a walk with Kat, otherwise there might have been a rumble around here!

For Him…

Loyal reader Geoffrey Edwardstone sent in a tip that there are some terrific prizes to locate in the For Him Hunt.  You may have already seen that Loki blogged the Horr Menswear hunt prize {here}.  It sure looks great on him!  Astrid shared the Storax Tree’s Seattle Loft Small Table {here}, which is another hunt item.  After seeing all of these goodies, and reading Geoffrey’s note, I decided to tackle this hunt for myself.  In no time at all, I picked up my Camo Cargo Shorts over at {Fe Style}.  The package includes two fit mesh options, plus mesh for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza body, I got a terrific fit, even though there is not a specific mesh avatar version.  With plenty of pockets to stash the day’s necessities in, and a cool camo print, I can see myself sporting these shorts often.  Once I located the wrench concealed in the shop, this summer wardrobe staple cost me just one Linden dollar.  Thanks so much for the heads up, Geoffrey!

Sizes Included:

  • two fitmesh versions
  • mesh in S, M, and L
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

Back to Work

I was glad to get out of the house head out to organize the garage so I could avoid sorting  through items indoors assist with operation SPRING SPRUCE UP (her idea, not mine!).  I hear the pitter patter of dog feet returning from his walk, so I’d better get started back to work.  I hope he didn’t count how many Ripley snacks were in the jar out here.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Growing My Awareness

Rockin' the Polka Dots

Hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy April!  It’s always so exciting to have a new month roll around, so my pal Ripley and I can dust off his tracking harness and hit the trail.  My outfit today is from an April hunt that is not only fun, but also works to raise awareness about Autism, which affects 1 in 50 children.  I am so happy to do my part to support MixMatchMissy with this endeavor.  Her goal with this hunt is to encourage people to “pay it forward by thinking of how you can assist at least one person with autism into feeling safe, included, and valued.”  If you’d like to learn more about Autism or the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, please take a moment to visit MixMatchMissy’s blog post about the topic.

Rockin’ the Polka Dots

This adorable crimson frock with white polka dots from Thirteen is just simply adorable!  I love, love, love the cut out section in the front that allows for a peek at your midsection, and the high cut sides.  Playful spaghetti straps and a back that dips just below your shoulder blades round out the look.  Its eye catching color combination is sure to raise your spirits.  The prize package includes versions for mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can add this fun dress to your spring wardrobe completely for free once you locate the hunt object concealed within the shop.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus

This hunt runs until the end of April, and contains lots of beautiful gifts.  Many of them are free, and some cost 1 Linden dollar, but are well worth the teensy cost.  The pupster and I are going to continue on with the hunt, and look forward to sharing some more Fabulous Finds with you soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Nope, I’m Not Too Old For an Easter Egg Hunt!

Happy Easter

Hey there, Fabulous Readers!  After all of Kat’s Fabulous Finds from the Easter Egg Hunt over at the Land of Rainbows, I journeyed to the sim to check it out for myself.  Right away, I discovered the colorful egg from Ascend, and excitedly teleported home to open my free prize…

A New Stan

… and then discovered the Ben Slim Fit Shirt package included only versions for mesh bodies.  At first, that was a big bummer, but I had been toying with the idea of picking up a mesh body anyway, so I decided to take the plunge and go full mesh.  After my transformation, the top fit my Belleza Jake body to a “tee” (ugh, even I winced at the bad pun – sorry).  It showed off my newly acquired muscles, and the texture featured realistic wrinkles.  The front is a solid charcoal color, and a cheery holiday message is printed across the shoulder blades. Best of all, it was completely free as a gift in the Easter Egg Hunt, which I appreciated after my spending spree.  The hunt runs until April 6th, so there is still time for you to “hop” on over and do some searching for yourself.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

I’m looking forward to blogging a wider variety of clothing than I was able to show in the past.  It will take some time to get used to my new face, but at least Ripley didn’t run and hide from me when I put it on.  Hopefully, the best readers in the world will think it looks ok, too.  Until next time, Happy Easter!

Looking For the Land of Rainbows

Dappled Sunlight

Happy Middle of the Week, Fabulous Readers!  I’m looking forward to the upcoming three day weekend, and I sure hope you have some extra time off as well.  Today, the pupster and I traveled to the Land of Rainbows, and sought out colorful Easter eggs, which are hidden throughout the sim.  There are gifts for both men and women in this hunt, and they are all completely free!

Sweet Spring Mini

One of the eggs in the Land of Rainbows Easter Egg hunt contained this adorable Iris Dress, which is a free gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  Featuring a high neckline secured with thin straps, a decorative waistband, and a dramatically low back, this pretty floral frock is perfect for the warm spring days to come.  I love the added touch of the dangling straps down my back.  Although there were no sizes for classic avatars, this fresh little number fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  Best of all, when you locate the Easter egg from Wicca’s Wardrobe, you can add Iris to your spring wardrobe for free!  The hunt runs until April 6th, so you still have plenty of time to hit the trail.

Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

I know a certain someone who is looking for some quality men’s outfits to blog, so I’d better run and give him a chance to do some egg hunting of his own.  Until next time, happy shopping hunting!

Hellooo Fab Free’rs! As you can see by the photos above, I’ve been having some fun with several freebies and cheapies I found recently. I want to say right away that each of them is very time sensitive so if you like them do not wait to pick them up! Keep reading and I’ll give you all the infos!

That Hair!

Each of the two hairstyles shown above are part of the single Finders Keepers/St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. There have been a many other recent posts showing Finders Keepers Hunt items, I’ll list the others below. These super cool hairstyles are from A&Y Cybernetics. You’ll be hunting a little pot of gold. The hunt ends March 24th, so again do not wait! The hint for A&Y’s post of gold is “golden light of the firefly beckons gold.” In the FREE hunt gift at A&Y you’ll get the Lucia hair (left) and the Dext hair (right). The Lucia hair comes with a “no tubes” version. The Dext hair is technically a male hairstyle. It has a set of system layer hair bases and an Omega applier hair base.

P.S. I had a little help from a loyal Fab Free reader finding this hunt prize, so I’ll pay it forward to you. The key word in the hint is “Firefly”. I hope that helps. Happy Hunting!
