It’s an 8bit Christmas

8 Bit Christmas

Hunting time again.

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s the weekend once again and that means it’s time to dig into more hunts. I’ve been trying out a few this past week and aside from getting mixed up and turned around (happened quite a bit, unfortunately) my loot bag has been stuffed to the brim with goodies. One such example is the beautifully quirky 8bit Christmas dress that’s out from Eclectic Stars for the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt. If you’ve read Pru’s post {HERE} Eclectic Stars carries a wide range of unique and nerdy clothing and furniture pieces and the 8bit Christmas dress is no exception. True to its name the dress features cute pixel Santas, reindeers, Christmas trees and candy canes and gave me quite the nostalgic kick for the old video games I used to play (Pac-Man!) Coupled with the vivid Christmas-y color scheme of greens and reds you’ll surely have a great dress for this season. The 8bit Christmas dress comes in 5 Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL) with an alpha layer to help with the fit as well as sizing for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink Physique mesh bodies. Prizes in the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe hunt costs 1L but if you’d rather not poke around the store you can buy the prize for 25L from the mistletoe prize prim. Personally, I’d take some time to peruse the items in Eclectic Stars as they do have a free no group needed advent calendar up, not to mention a Midnight Mania board and their free FabFree group gift! Curious to see what that is? Take a peek at Julianna’s post {HERE}

Tis the season…

To join groups for free! Moon hair store has set their group join fee to 0L and they have a wide range of group gifts out for you to pounce on. I’ve been watching this store for a while because of their elegantly casually hairstyles and beautiful hair colors and was pretty pleased to have discovered this free join period. Pictured is the Mias La II which is but one of many group gifts available. While I was partial to the dusty light purple version of this hairstyle there are nine other out of the ordinary colors to choose from an easy to use Hud that’s included in the gift package. Once you’re in the group, you can take advantage of group only Lucky Letter boards and Midnight Mania board. I’m not sure when Moon’s free group join exercise will end so join up soon.

This glittery Christmas

The holiday season is a good excuse for glitter and since I love shiny things and shoes from Baby Monkey I zoomed right over to the store when I saw that they’ve generously set out a gift for the Fabulously Free in SL group. As you well know the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join and if you’re not a member yet you can copy and paste the following link into the main chat of your SL viewer and click on the link when it pops up on local. The link is: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about . Welcome to the group, please grab your free shoes. Classic pumps are a staple in any shoe collection and these come in six (you read that right) beautiful glittery colors. Just click on the hud provided in the gift package and have fun matching your shoes to your outfit. The Glitter Pumps come in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet. When you’re done grabbing your free group gift, check out the no group needed lucky letter chairs (two for guys as well) and the advent tree that’s set out at the Baby Monkey Mainstore!

8 Bit Christmas headshotThe search is still on!

In my last post {HERE} I said that two of my favorite skin stores are participating in the Women Only Hunt 2. If you guessed that the other store is 7 Deadly s{K}ins then you’re right and they’re offering the Amina skin shown above. You can get sweet-faced Amina for 0L by hunting out the snowflake at the 7 Deadly s{K}ins main store and once you’ve found it be ready to be in for a treat. The prize package contains the Amina classic skin in six skin tones (caramel shown) with cleavage/no cleavage options. Four skin tones (caramel, fudge, sand and taupe) have cluster packages that include appliers for Banned, Wowmeh, Tango, Phatazz and Slink Hands and Feet whereas appliers for Tango, Pthatazz and Slink Hands and Feet are provided for the skin tone Powder. It’s a very generous and top quality gift but I’ve found that it’s par for course for 7 Deadly s{K}ins. If you’re not a group member, do think about joining up as the store is holding a group only advent and the join fee for the group is free.

I also mentioned…

That Mesange was participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 and that their gift was a trio of beautiful Ice Dream Eyes. I’ve been wearing the blue pair the entire week and decided to switch up to the green pair for this picture. The colors are very stunning and I love the snowy glaze on these green peepers just as much as I love them on the blue. If you haven’t picked up this lovely prize, it’s available for free when you find the snowflake at the Mesange main store. Prize package includes system layer eyes, mesh eyes and Genesis and Omega System huds.

If you’ve missed the coverage for the Women Only Hunt 2, here’s a rundown:

Gotta get back to those hunts now. Have fun on your weekend dear readers!

A Mantra for the Weekend

Netflix Nutella and Naps

Those lovely long gone weekends.

Sometimes I can’t believe how fast those weekends zip by. It almost always seems that I blink and somehow teleported myself into another Monday. Hmm…I hope that isn’t some sort of hidden superpower manifesting itself but thankfully though I managed to make last weekend fruitful but getting into some hunts I’ve been meaning to do. Ever since I saw Pru’s post {HERE} about a pair of lovely and free boots from Perch, completing the Women Only Hunt 2 quickly made it’s way up to the top of my bucket list. This free hunt runs until the 24th of this month and there is a nifty hunt hud that you can pick up at the organizer’s main office which makes teleporting from store to store and getting hunt hints a breeze. Since I’m behind (what else is new yeah?) and am going to try my hand at doing a few hunts at once this really came in handy!

Back to knitwear.

In these chilly months, I’ve really come to miss my T-Shirts with their quirky quotes so opening up the hunt prize from American Bazaar and finding this oversized knit sweater was really a pleasant surprise. Not only is this comfy find well made and textured, I was also tickled by the caption on the front. Netflix Nutella and Naps…it’s good to have plans for next weekend don’t you think? This oversized sweater comes in five standard mesh sizing (XS-XL) with a good alpha layer to keep things nice and fitted. Just hunt out the snowflake at American Bazaar and this cozy addition to your wardrobe can be yours for free.

The thing about leggings…

Is that I can’t seem to get enough of them this season, especially the ones with the pretty prints and eye-catching colors. It’s a good thing then that the Women Only Hunt prize at Boutique #187 yielded up the Xmas knit beige leggings. Not only will these keep me warm while out on a jaunt on a snowy sim, the festive prints, and vivid colors certainly put me in a jolly mood. The Xmas leggings come in a system pants layer for those with a classic body and also a great hud that incorporates appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies as well as mesh bodies compatible with the Omega system. It’s a great space saver where inventory is concerned so hunt out that snowflake and get your leggings for free.

Who does your hair again?

In this post {HERE} I mentioned two new group gifts from the Truth VIP group and pictured is the second style. While I don’t own a great many short hairstyles, I fell in love with the Irenka hairdo straightaway thanks to it’s casual, wavy style. That tousled look is perfectly paired up with the beanie and not only will you get a hud to play around with beanie customization you’ll also get the option for added bangs. As with the Irena hairstyle, the Irenka hairdo comes in a fatpack of colors too. The Truth VIP group has a one time fee of 350L but we’ve gotten 3 hairstyles so far so it’s a great deal.

Back to the hunt!

Two of my favorite skin stores are participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 and one of those is WoW Skins. While hunting I noticed that they had their December group gift out and I immediately picked it up as well. I’ve always adored the glossiness of the skins from this merchant and December’s group gift, Janette, didn’t disappoint. The subtle blush on the skin is so very pretty and really brings to mind how flushed skin looks when you’ve been out in the chill. December’s group gift consists of the Janette classic skin in Tan with cleavage/no cleavage options as well as Catwa and Omega appliers.  The Janette group gift is free to current members and it’s 450L to join. If you do decide to make the investment, past gifts will also be available to you as well as Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards.

Frosted sight.

As soon as I saw that Mesange was participating in the Women Only Hunt 2 I thought, well there goes my decision to stick to one eye color. I’ve really enjoyed wearing the expressive eyes from this merchant and their Women Only Hunt 2 prize is no different. The aptly named Ice Dream Eyes fits in perfectly for this snowy season and if you’re into role playing as supernatural creatures these frosty pair of eyes are something that you could wear all year round. The best thing about this hunt prize, aside from being free of course, is the fact that you’ll get not one but three different dreamy eye colors. Pictured are the blue pair but there are green and gray as well. In the prize package, you’ll receive for all three colors, system eyes, mesh eyes and a hud for the Genesis mesh head as well as the Omega hud for mesh heads compatible with that system.

And that’s a wrap. Happy Hunting dear readers! For more coverage of the Women Only Hunt 2 check out the following posts:
