Happy Saturday! Hope your week went well. I’ve been battling a flu/cold all week, so I’m going to skip waxing poetically and get right to the point. Today’s post features a few time sensitive events closing on Tuesday, February 28, 2017. First up is Park Place Home Decor Black Leather Chaise, Red Heart Garland Wall Decor, Gray Shag Diamonds Area Rug, Leafy Green Table Plant and French Walnut Round Accent Side Table exclusive for the Swank Event ending 2/28/17. The theme for February was truly, madly, deeply; which inspired the darker boudoir. Next is Brook Hill Livings recent release for the February round of The Crossroads Event, the Wagner Chair in Ebony and Spotlight, closing 2/28/17. I also used the Faun Chandelier in Midnight, available for sale at the main store. The remaining decor items are from a new to me subscriber monthly event called Deco(c)rate. On the 8th of every month a mystery box with 15 semi-exclusive items from top H&G designers are delivered to your inventory, if you reserved your cart for $1,500L before the 7th. Afterward the price doubles to $3,000L. In today’s post, I used Mudhoney Ginny Bed, Second Spaces Mood Lighting Candles, Cheeky Pea Forgotten Places Fireplace, Hextraordinary Antique Cherub Lamp, Stockholm & Lima The Lovers Trail and Serenity Style All for Love Suitcase. There are a number of other items that I hope to showcase before the new March boxes arrive. Personally, I’m still a little on the fence about a subscription event, time will tell if it’s for me. (I do love my bargains :-)) Lastly, I mentioned in my last blog post I wanted to spotlight more gifts from the Love Me…Love Me Not Hunt (ending 2/28) and Gloria is sporting the Facepalm Just Love red silk sleep shirt in standard sizing and mesh compatible. Gloria’s golden locks are HoneyAna, the new group gift from Truth Hair ($350L join fee). Hope you enjoyed the post, I’ve got couple more planned for the weekend….stay tuned!
Happy Wednesday! I hope you had a good weekend. I’m back today with more Valentine’s Day decor and fashion. To highlight some of the hunt gifts on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt until 2/28/17, I created a sweet and soft pretty in pink bedroom. One of my favorite gifts on the hunt is Dreamscapes Art Gallery Love Ladder. The ladder corresponds perfectly with Dreamscapes new release Jessir Chair in stripes with english rose printed blanket and matching heart ottoman. Another great companion from Dreamscapes is the Love Frames, a gift on the Stupid Cupid Hunt (2/3-2/28). To me Valentine’s Day always means roses and StoraxTree has a lovely Vintage Plant Stand Rose Bush Pink on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt. Another nice gift is Love You Suitcase, a fun pink teddy bear suitcase from Sickly Sweet. To complete the styling of the feminine boudoir, I used Floorplan Swan Lake Score Print above the bed and Bow Chair at the bureau (both part of January 2017 Collabor88). What Next Amelie Blanket Box and Picture Shelves (both past FLF) round out the floral pastel palette. Lastly, I added Adorably Strange Wares Roseta Wreath to the mirrors behind the table lamp available for 50% off at Perfect Ten (till 2/15).As for some fashion, today I have an adorable lingerie set from Carrie’s Lingerie. The Love Me pink with heart balconette-style bra with matching thong is a free gift on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt. The Love Me set is designed for classic avi’s (non-mesh) with an omega applier, I haven’t succumbed the temptation of mesh bodies yet. If you ever want to know my skin or hair, just im me, I’m happy to share (I’m really bad at listing everything I use for fashion post). In the above picture I’m wearing Lamb Dissolved Girl hair (previous group gift, still available for free). Another pretty in pink lingerie set is Blacklace Lady Almathea, the new group gift ($99L group fee). Lady Almathea is a pink rose appliqué corset with panties that fits mesh and system avi’s. I’m sporting Exile Rush hair and Cog & Fleur Cloisonne Heart jewelry set, a gift on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt. Hope you enjoyed my soft and sweet Valentine’s Day blog post. Happy early cupid day!
Happy Holidays! For those of you living in the United States, I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and took advantage of the Black Friday deals. I noticed that Linden Labs has 12 Days of Savings on the marketplace, so be sure to check them out before December 7th. Today’s post will kick off the holiday season featuring a number of different events, hunts and deals available on the grid. If you’re a bargain hunter, then the entire month of December is your dream; pretty much from mid-November till after the New Year there are special annual events like SL Christmas Expo 2015 (12/3-14/15, benefitting Relay for Life of Second Life), hunts such as Peace on Earth 2015 (12/1/15-1/9/16) and store advent calendars (ie: Sway’s Advent 12/1-24/15). I’ll try my best to spotlight some of these deals with accompany holiday tunes.
Up first, Perfect Ten has open (December 1st -15th) offering 50% off discount from 10 Home & Garden creators. I just love the Lodge Xmas Living Room log-style set with gingerbread men patterned cushions and matching Christmas Tree by HJM Designs. The set includes 2 armchairs, 1 sofa, 1 coffee table, 1 end table, decorative holly pillar candle tray, golden angel candle display and gingerbread men painted ornament tree. On the coffee table, I accessorized with a plate of fresh-baked gingerbread men cookies, hot cocoa, mini winter scene, Park Place Berry and Evergreen Decor and Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine Jar of Winter w/Bow moose snow globe (50% off @ Perfect Ten).
Creating warmth in the room is Sway’s Darret Stone Fireplace, tools and wooden wall planks previously released at The Liaison Collaborative, now available at Sway Land.

On the right side of the lodge is Sway’s limited Katya Chaise Lounge in hohoho color palette of red, green and brown, available in Adult or PG version for December Mix Event (until 12/31). Also flanking the right wall is a hutch with Finishing Touches Peace on Earth dove Pine Wreath, Tylar’s Treasures White with Red Snowflake Tree (50% off @ Perfect Ten) and Dreamland Designs Victorian First Noel Candlesticks (free @ GLH X-mas Fair 2015).

One of Second Life’s most popular hunt is back for the sixth year, the Midsummer Night’s Dream presented by Kastle Rock. The MND 6 Hunt is unique from most hunts on the grid because it’s broken into six different paths, with over 100+ stores offering male/female/unisex/petite and home furnishings until July 21, 2015. Kastle Rock’s hunter guide will provide more information for each path (hints & LM) and a gift preview page.
Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy play by William Shakespeare (1590- 1597), portraying the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors (mechanicals), who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.
Today, I will be showing three fantasy garden decor hunt gifts from Finishing Touches, Dreamscapes Art Gallery, and Park Place Home Decor. Finishing Touches Enchanted Forest Swing is a whimsical weathered ivy-covered solo swing with 6 animations. Fairy Set by Dreamscapes Art Gallery is a playful free formed twig chair (13 animations) and tree stump coffee table with candle display. Park Place Fallen Log Bench with blanket and plants is perfect for summer picnic and cuddling with your sweetie, chalk full of single/couple poses. Below are the vendor ads for the 3 hunt items above. Good luck on the Midsummer Night’s Dream hunt and have a merry time!
