I’ve been wearing Paper Doll’s Season’s Hunt dress for the past day or so and it’s so adorable..I had talked myself out of blogging it because I’ve seen it in the feeds so much..I probably shouldn’t worry about what else is being blogged and just blog what I like and what I’m wearing that day…I guess we all…well..most of us…strive to find that original style that sets us apart from the rest.

This is the first season since I’ve blogged that I didn’t participate in The Seasons Hunt..I usually do a big post with all of my loot…and as always there is some excellent loot. I did of course still have to go pick up a few of the prizes that I saw on The Rumor blog..if you’ve never checked that blog out you should..and bookmark it too! They always have pics of all the items in the good hunts, FLF items, Project Themeory, all sorts of great deals..all with pictures and links!

taking a good look at myself

These shoes, the Kookie Chic Heels, were one of my first “biggie” shoe purchases…I had to have them…even as I was putting them on for this shoot I was oohin’ and ahin’ all over like it was the first time I’d ever seen them. Kookie Lemon is retiring them, plus some other older styles forever..but not without first giving us the opportunity to get them for half off…click here to TP to Kookie!

How quickly our sl favorites become “vintage” items it seems…hell…how quickly we become “vintage”, lol….
So this lotd is some “vintage” sl mixed with some new sl, like The Secret Store’s hot new summer beach shorts.

the best things in (second) life are free

An empty pocketbook is no excuse not to go on a shopping extravaganza this weekend. There are so many hunts and free gifts going on right now, including my all time favorite, The Seasons Hunt. You can tell by all the pictures in this post I’ve been a very busy bee redecorating the bedroom in my new Blossom cottage from FunkyJunk, available at the April Chic Limited event.

The Second Life Marketplace is filled with treasures, freebies, gifts ie..you just have to know how to search them out. Try browsing your items from lowest priced to highest priced(under the advanced search option) I’ve found so many great deals that way-Like these free cups of coffee and tea from Nordari. (beverage inside is scripted to change when touched) Nordari always has awesome in store freebies, but they also have a few gifts that are only available on the marketplace.

The color.me room divider by Nordari is probably my favorite find from this entire shoot. I’m not sure if it’s available in store or not..I found it for FREE on the Marketplace. The wood and the fabric are both texture change-just click for the menu 🙂

hanging lamps behind dressing screen: recycling.lamps by nordari. FREE on Marketplace SL. 4 diff lamps included polka dot shown here..click to make light.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia! Intrigue’s Seasons Hunt gift is probably pretty high on my favorite finds list as well. Scripted to “grow” when you click him (the plant, not the planter, of course lol) Although the planter is modify so you can make it any size you wish…yes if you’ve been secretly dreaming of a gigantic Chia pet for your, er..personal pleasure this is your lucky day. Hey, this is sl….you never know!

In Spring Bed by Art Dummy..FREE in TSH. 22 prims and 16 animations (4 singles and 4 couples on each pillow)

light hanging above bed: nordari lamps FREE The Seasons Hunt. 4 diff color lamps included, 2 prims a piece…also comes with mouth lime (not worn)
rug: nordari ruggies FREE in-world (gift includes 6 different color rugs)

(above) Art imitating life imitating art….whoa…that’s heavy man :p

Another hunt worth checking out is the Nerd Bomberz Hunt…I actually haven’t checked it out yet I’ve been so busy with The Seasons Hunt, lol…but I figured a hunt with a gift as good as the Nerd Bombers Desk from Crackberry in it..is definitely worth checking out! (searching for a bomb in this hunt)
The chair has 3 sitting animations, The picture on the bulletin board can be changed to your own and it’s only 18 prims. The book and the computer are also included.
also in pic..

The 3 adorable pics on the wall above the desk: duboo-FREE The Seasons Hunt (also included is a little plant sprig for your head :p)
plant on top of desk: flowey – cup planter 7 prims-quote on the cup: The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day. –Robert Frost-FREE!! The Seasons Hunt

the seasons hunt poppy’s picks part 1

✿✿✿

ok, if you haven’t checked out, or started The Seasons Hunt, you seriously need to. The prizes are awesome!!!! anddd freeee!!!! I’m so excited about my loot today! I’ve been a very busy girl! I’m going to put together several different looks with all of my finds, this being my first.

I love love love the ensemble from TokiD..I did however edit the top part. The belt is connected to a bodice prim…I put the belt/bodice prim in edit mode, clicked edit linked parts, clicked the bodice prim, and made it 100% transparent. Otherwise it didn’t look right with the This is a Fawn cardigan. If you’re going to edit anything like that, always make sure and make a copy of the original piece before you start fartin’ around with it. 🙂

oh..I wanted to mention about the poses…I got the Olive Juice and Glitterati poses and they are terrific..poses that I would buy. I didn’t get the flowey poses or the Skin & Bones because both of those stores had at least 20 snowmen out I clicked all the ones I saw and never found “the one” ….I was lagging out so badly (the way you do at pose stores sometimes) and clicking all those damn snowmen, lol…getting really irritated..So I finally said screw it..I’m not going through all of this for 3 poses….HMPFT!
