Sweet as Candy

Sugar Bowl_001

If you’re looking for a sweet deal, it’s time to head to the Cart Wash Sale (if you haven’t already) and check out the 1 Hundred cart! This sexy vendor offers pretty and quirky and stylish minis, lingerie, and dresses that are sure to catch your eye. I showed off their free gift in my post {here} but I wanted to be sure to show off at least one of their fantastic 10L offerings as well!

I picked up this candy colored Just Me Mini dress for just 10L at the 1 Hundred Cart at the Cart Wash sale and I love the pretty yet sexy look. Be warned, it’s really short! If you bend over, you may show a little “cheek”!

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Treat or….. Trick! I love a good trick but this Trick tank top by 1 Hundred is all treat since it is a FREE gift at the Wash Cart Sale! You simply go to the 1 Hundred cart and buy it for 0L! No trick involved! While you’re there, stop to look at the 10L offerings, there are lots of cute things to buy (I plan to show off one or two in a post soon!). In the meantime, enjoy this tank top! It comes in system layers as well as a universal Omega applier for mesh bodies.

More JellyRoll!

I showed off the JellyRoll Snuggle Sweaters in my post {here} but I couldn’t resist picking up the creator’s FREE gift that was sitting by the cart at the Cart Wash Sale. I was thrilled with the little set of Black Widow Ear Cuffs. A little tweak of adjustment and they fit my Catwa mesh ears just perfectly without any trouble at all. Aren’t they cute! Just buy them for 0L, like all the gifts currently out at the Wash Cart Sale for this anniversary round!

What’s Lurking in My Bedroom?!

The Creeps_001

I’m just relaxing on my new furniture courtesy of StoraxTree and the Horror Hunt. At first glance, this 1L prize is just an innocent 4 prim bedroom set (all one piece when you set it down and with lots of great details)… but it has five  poses total, four of which are rather creepy (see below!) This bedroom set will make a neat (temporary?) Halloween addition to your home if you are into decorating and for just 1L

The Creeps_002

More Hunting

I also hunted down this Gothika Red Straps Dress at Moonstar. I really love the color and detailing and it’s a perfect fit. It comes in all the sizes you could need and all you’ll need to spend is a little time hunting as part of the Horror Romantic Hunt and 1 little Linden!

Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Creeps_003

New Heels

My last hunt find was also 1L and part of the Horror Romantic Hunt. I fell in love with these Italian Nights heels from Loordes of London. They fit Slink high feet and are a dream and match the dress from Moonstar perfectly. Pick these up for a little hunting time (they are super easy to find) and 1L!

Happy H(a)unting!

Ghost Hunter

Ghost Hunter

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello fabulous readers! The weekend is almost here, and I am sooo glad!

SL Halloween season is in full-swing, so I decided to take a break from RL work to do a little hunting. But boy, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!

An Easy Find

Thankfully, my first find didn’t require much any hunting at all. I just popped into the store and grabbed it, and you can too! Just head over to S@BBiA and join the FREE in-world group to snap up this festive outfit.

The Halloween Gift includes the SleeveRibbon Dress, which is a one-size-fits-all mesh dress with an alpha layer. The pumpkin-orange booties are included and are sized for Maitreya and Slink medium/mid feet. They even come with a texture-change HUD to change the socks from purple and black to white and black or remove them completely.

Level of Difficulty = 11

And now for something completely different!

One of my favorite nail designers, Hello Dave, is holding a HUGE hunt on the Moochie sim. My hunting gear – the flashlight and cute bag – are both from the Halloween Hunt 2017 information kit. To get yours, head over to the Hello Dave main store and click the sign. You don’t even have to be a member of the in-world group to participate.

The information folder includes:

  • a flashlight
  • 8 different trick-or-treat bags
  • a map of Moochie so you won’t get lost like I did
  • a notecard list of all the hunt items you must find
  • a clickable HUD to help you keep track of your finds

I’ve done some difficult hunts in my day, but wow, this one is hard! There are 42 different items to find (yes, you read that right), and don’t even bother trying to cheat with an area search because the hunt items have all been renamed. Some are easy to find, and some are… well, let’s just say, after 4 days, I’m still looking for them. :-/

If you hang in there and find all the hunt items, you will receive some awesome prizes:

  1. 20 Exclusive Hello Dave nail palettes, compatible with Maitreya, Omega, Slink, Vista, Belleza, and Empire.
  2. 500L store credit to spend at Hello Dave.
  3. Your name, immortalized on the blood board of WINNERS for all to see.

Since I haven’t found all 42 hunt items yet, I can’t show you any of the prizes. But I wanted to make you aware of this hunt so you can get an early start. Trust me, you’ll need it!

One piece of advice: make sure you allow plenty of time for everything to completely rez. I found that each time I went back to the sim, new items showed up, and I was able to find more.

Hello Dave Halloween Hunt 2017

Even if you don’t finish the hunt, the Halloween-themed Moochie sim is a lot of fun to explore and enjoy (although, a bit laggy at times), with plenty of scenic spots for photos.

On a side note: Hello Dave is also participating in the “SL’s Top Haunted Places Hunt,” so be on the lookout for a little gift box that you just might stumble across without trying (I did!). You can grab an info notecard in the store, and there’s a hint-giver at the Halloween Hunt landing spot.

Happy (haunted) hunting!  😈

Sizes available:

  • Standard Fitted
  • Maitreya – Lara

New glasses

I added to my look by stopping by @rOrO and picking up their Third Life Gift — these “Love N Hate” Sunglasses which come in either gold of Silver. Even though my dress was gold, I opted to wear the silver glasses because I liked the contrasting looks. These are modifiable and I was able to get a nice fit with a little stretching and playing and voila! If you are not already a member, the Third Life Group is 10L to join and gives you access to gifts across the grid. It’s well worth the 10L fee!

She’s a Vision

Leopard Vision_001

“I’ll wait all night to meet her.
I’ll wait all night to see her smile.
I’ll wait all night to meet her.

She’s a vision, she’s a vision, she’s a vision…”

Visionary…

There’s a new group gift at Vision and you don’t want to miss out on this freebie. Just teleport to the Vision main-store and wear your store group tag to pick up the Tessa Jeans Skirt. It comes in a leopard print with a slightly purple sheen (so I paired it with an older lavender top that I had in my inventory) and the skirt is really gorgeous.

When you get to Vision, if you’re not already a group member, be aware that there are two store groups. One is free to join and that is the group that you need to get the group gift. The other is the VIP group and requires a fee. You can join the VIP group to get access to the lucky letter boards if you choose, but you don’t need the VIP group to get the group gift.

Skirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Wicked Witch of the South

Wicked Witch of the South
Hello My Pretties! I hope you’ve all enjoyed the weekend thus far. I’ve had a good time, especially considering the opportunity to be a little wicked, or at least dress that way. Thanks to some great group gifts, and a few FREE Sanarae Anniversary gifts, I was able to put together this witchy look. Perhaps this could be the start of my Halloween costume this year?! Time will tell.

Witch

The latest group gift at Mossu served as the inspiration for this look. This studded “WITCH” collar is a FREE group gift at Mossu and the Mossu group is currently FREE to join. This fun accessory includes a color change hud that lets you pick from a few preset colors for the studs, the collar, and the letters. To get your copy just head over to Mossu and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your Mossu group tag.

Neon Claws

These long coffin shaped claws are a FREE group gift to Slack Girl group members at the new Slack Girl location for bento nails and accessories. The Slack Girl group is currently 100 linden to join. I love the glossy look of these nails. They come in several sizes/fits, and include a color change hud with a handful of options for the colored streak on a glossy black nail. I went with green because it made me think of my favorite fictional witch, Elphaba, aka the Wicked Witch of the West. Pru however (or the person behind the computer) is southern, hence the play on words.

Sizes/Fits Included: Slink, Maitreya, Tuty, Tonic, Vista

Ombre Lips

You might have heard that the current round of Sanarae is their 2nd Anniversary round. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that means lots and lots of gifts! The wonderfully witchy ombre lipstick Pru is wearing is one of 6 gorgeous color options in the FREE Sanarae birthday gift from Enfer Sombre. Don’t worry, not all the colors are as dark as the one shown. To get your copy of this Catwa applier, you’ll need to join the Sanarae group. The Sanarae group is FREE to join. Then while wearing your Sanarae tag, click the birthday cake at the Enfer Sombre booth.

Septum Piercing

Finally, the delicate septum piercing is also a FREE gift to help celebrate Sanarae’s 2nd birthday. This FREE gift is from Mulloy. You’ll need to wear the Sanarae group tag for this one also, which as I mentioned earlier is FREE to join. This gift comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 4 preset metal colors. You’ll find this gift at the Mulloy booth, just click the birthday cake wile wearing your Sanarae tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The White Cliffs

The White Cliffs_001

I’ve been in an “Edgar-Allan-Poe”-type-melancholy-mood lately. It led me to visit an art sim called “The White Cliffs of Dover.” It’s a fairly simple sim. It really is just a set of barren cliffs with a couple of planes, a tea shop and grasslands. Somehow, though, it is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. I find that when I am melancholy, I crave simplicity. It helps me keep life in perspective.

Since I was in a melancholy mood, I decided to try out the Quoth the Raven Hunt and see what I came up with (hurry, the hunt ends September 30th). I visited Lunaria and hunted down the creator’s prize which is an incredibly beautiful gown… which I would argue is Edgar Allan Poe inspired. Or at least certainly Raven inspired.

The gown

The gown Branwen, by Lunaira, is a seemingly simple formal navy blue gown will a full skirt, until you take a closer look. It has an add-on feather belt and the skirt itself is covered in both texture and add-on prim feathers for a stunning and beautiful look. The overall mesh flow of the dress is superb. Hunt down the raven icon and pay just 1L for this gem of a dress to add to your wardrobe.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Hunt down a good book!

Hunt down a good book_001

I’m all settled in to read a good book… or two… or three! And thanks to Sway’s I can do it free! It’s like having my own free Second Life library with comfy pillows!

10th Birthday!

It’s Sway’s 10th Birthday! And they are celebrating with a birthday hunt and giving out a free exclusive prize… this gorgeous reading set which includes the pillows and book stack.

Furniture details:

  • Pillows = 2 prims
  • Pillows have 7 poses (including 1 couple pose) and give book props on touch
  • Pillows do not use pose balls
  • Pillows have 6 texture options for different color schemes
  • Book stack = 2 prims

How to get your gift:

Teleport to Sway’s and at the landing point you’ll find a little area with all the information. Pick up the gift hud and wear it. It will show ten blank balloon spaces on the hud. You’ll need to hunt down the ten different colored balloons that are hidden all over the sim. There are not any balloons in any skyboxes; they are all on the ground. You must be close to the balloons when you click them for them to “fill” your hud.

Once you have touched all ten balloons and filled your hud, come back to the gift station and click the gift station to redeem your hud and get your free gift! It’s that easy!

Quick tip: I found that the hud covered part of my screen because of its placement. I edited it by moving it to the far top left of my screen to move it out of the way and that made hunting for the balloons much easier!

The hunt ends Oct 15th, 2017.

Getting comfy

Reading books means I needed a comfy outfit for my reading adventure. I stopped by Kamiri to pick up their FabFree group gift offering, which of course is always free. I really like this little one piece outfit which includes both the top and shorts.

Sizes included:

  • Classic mesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Happy reading! I hope you find a new favorite book!
