Finesmith Valentine Hunt

Finesmith Jewelry is having a Valentine hunt until the end of the month, February 28, 2013. There are 16 hidden hearts priced from 0L to 100L.  Personally, I like to preview the hunt items before I spend my time and money hunting for them.  So, below I have taken snapshots of each collection to give you a better idea of the gifts.

First up and my favorite, the Love Nugget set includes red hearts and flowers necklace (heart #5), matching corsage bracelet (heart #9), ring (heart #9) and stud rose earrings (heart #1).  I am wearing Truth January hair in Chocberry.

Next, is the Heartfelt collection: necklace (heart #14), stacked bangles (heart #8) and drop earrings (heart #4).  Three color options are include in each piece, silver with red stone, gold with black stone and black with purple. I paired this set with Truth Hollana hair special priced for 88L at Collabor88.  I had never been to Collabor88 but when I received a notice from Truth Hair that one of their styles were priced so low, I run and purchased this hair in a number of colors. Normally, Truth hair in 250L, so this is a super steal for an adorable hair. I purchased a few other items at Collabor88 and will post an article shortly.

Warning: when wearing the Valentine necklace (heart #16) there is no denying your true feelings. This large display of affection comes in oxidized, copper (worn), gold & silver.

Drops of gold and regal flair will be yours when wearing the next collection, Dark Love. This collection also comes in matte silver and black. I paired the necklace (heart # 11), chandelier earrings (heart # 7), and tiara (heart # 15) with the Touch of Love in Gold Ruby ring (heart #2) and Love Spell hair sticks in Gold (heart # 6). Dark Love Set

And, finally an avant garde costume collection, Hot Red. The necklace (heart # 10), earrings (heart # 13), bracelet (heart # 3) and crown (heart #12) have large shaped hearts falling off of thin silver cords. Hot Red setI also wanted to show you a few group gifts and specials I picked up when I was hunting at Finesmith. The first photo is the Valentine group gift, Love Angel in Gold with fab wing details and a very cool bracelet. Membership for Finesmith is 365L.  Next, is another group gift the Mixed Copper Necklace.  And, finally a 55 Thursday special, Love Doesn’t Grow collection.  I fell in love with this artist branch necklace and wish Yula would make more piece like this one. Please note the necklace is called Love is In the Details and the earrings are Love Doesn’t Grow on Tree, although there are corresponding necklaces and earrings they are not on sale. I splurged and purchased the Love Doesn’t Grow Bracelet pictured below. The background was The Cold Winter Night hunt item from Katink with 10 textures for 10L. Most of the poses are from WetCat’s Carmen set.

Valentine Day specials

Valentine’s Day is a tomorrow and it can be expensive both in RL and SL. As you have come to know, I love bargain shopping and hunting for great finds.  I have a number of items you ladies can wear during the day and night with your special someone.

First up, Purple Moon’s Cupid Arrow hunt item, Love Me Tender tunic and leggings, perfect for a stroll in the park with your loved one.  This fun, young look was accompanied with Madrid Solo February group gift, past Finesmith specials and free Valentine nails from Poisoned Apples, available at the Womenstuff Lounge (50L join fee).

Next up is a sweet and sassy mini dress from Unforgettable Temptations, the hunt gift from the Hugs & Kisses hunt.  I used LollipopZ hair and Blacklace Beauty Valentine gift make-up to complete the look.  The beach house and Valentine decor are from For the Love of…Home hunt, I will blog more about this hunt later.

Another great Valentine gift is Morea’s red and white polka-dot two piece skirt & blouse outfit (Morea is free to join).  I paired the outfit with Zuri’s Jewelry, Victoria Lace Hearts set, which was a hunt gift.  I used Madrid Solo male February group gift, Ali & Ali hair and an adorable bistro set from a hunt.

While making Valentine’s and reading love letters, I relaxed in B!asta Stop Picking on Me hunt gift from The Stupid Cupid hunt.  I paired free Catwa punk pink roaring 20’s hair, Vogue’s dog tag necklace (February group gift) and G Force plum Mary Jane to complete the look. The Making Valentine table was a gift from the For The Love of …Home hunt. B!asta hunt item Catwa hair, close-up

As dust falls on SL, I slipped into Gizza February group gift, a darling red and white printed cocktail dress with matching boots trimmed in the same fabric. I paired the cocktail dress with Chop Zuey Love’s Coming choker, earrings, ring and Cheri-Amour bracelet (all items are gifts for Valentine’s Day).  The Love’s Coming earrings and bracelet are free for non-member, and the other pieces are exclusive for Chop Zuey members.

Elegant, romances and a touch of mystery surrounds me as I dance the night away in Purple Moon’s Amore in Red, a Valentine group gift.  Only Chop Zuey’s Love Coming set could emphasize the beauty of this stunning PM gown.
