Suck it, Cupid! You’re a Heartbreaker

February is here and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Many romantic and V-Day inspired events and hunts will be going on. But what about events for those who don’t like this day of love and mushiness? If you’re one of these people, have no fear, Xtreme Designs is putting on an anti-valentines event called Suck it, Cupid! On February 13, there will be a day-long hunt with contributions from several designers and a party that starts at 6pm slt. Two of the designers have given me a sneak peek at their gifts for the hunt so I’m sharing pictures with you all.

Mishmash Fusion will be offering up this adorable top and jean set for ladies that reminds me of Grease with the midrif showing. It’s fun and casual with one sleeve slipping off the shoulder and a knot tied on one side. Emblazoned with the text “Suck it, Cupid!” on the front, you’ll be feeling perfectly rebellious. Men also get a gift as pictured here with the matching text on the shirt. Whether you’re single, partnered, or anything else, these outfits are just too cute to pass up.

Also for the Suck it, Cupid! Hunt, =EC Designs= has created a sassy lip sofa that is simply fabulous. It has both female and male single poses as well as a couple pose. I can easily see this sofa in a single lady’s home for exchanging witty remarks with guests.

Lastly, though it is not a gift for this hunt, the knit pillow on the floor is something I got recently that has a few different gender neutral poses. It’s from Raven’s Rookery which has an assortment of useful home items. Place a couple of these pillows in the yard for watching stars, relaxing in a hidden corner of your home, or for meditation circles.

That’s all for now but I will be posting again for Fi’s Hunts with this month’s Add Some Red Hunt and other Valentine’s Day inspired goodies I discover. Happy February. ūüôā ‚̧

Upon the Highest Bough

 

Upon the Highest Bough

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away, ooh

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star
Upon the highest bough

So many events! So little time.

I’ve recently stopped by a few places like Arcade and The Tannenbaum Holiday Market for winter and Christmas themed decor and other goodies

If you haven’t heard, Pixicat has a new Fifty Linden Friday sweater up for grabs. Winter cozy and a touch holiday themed, this sweater comes with a texture change Hud for a few color options. All standard mesh sizes are included with some of the most popular mesh body fitted versions as well. You’ll be looking fashionable at the Ugly Sweater parties with this cozy design.

Typically I steer clear of shoes that aren’t fitted for Slink or Maitreya feet, but these boots from The Sugar Garden were to die for. There’s plenty of color choices for both the base and laces but these do not come with a texture change Hud. I left The Tannenbaum Holiday Market with a pair in white and the mocha ones seen here. While you’re there, try some of the gachas for cute baubles to put on your Christmas tree or just as fun knick knacks.

Also check out Collabor88 for some fantastic winter decor and clothing. The woodstove and a lot of the associated decor are from {what next} which really suited my living room. Warm up your hands and set the kettle on the stove for hot cocoa. Don’t forget to hang your stockings for Santa to fill!

The Arcade also has fun winter and holiday items along with the Season of Giving gifts from participating merchants. Right now I’m wearing one of Spellbound’s gacha hairs that comes in two hat versions (Blizzard or Chilly), and varying hair colors. Both hairs will keep your head warm and looking cute with the attached hat.

Remember to stay warm this season!

Baby It’s Cold Outside? More Goodies from Fi’s Hunts

Help me! I’m drowning in gifts! I can’t believe how many wonderful creations Fi’s Hunts’ Warm Socks Hunt 2 & Gacha Event has in store for everyone. The hunt is still going on from now to November 30th (Links below). With so many goodies, I can’t quite decide what to show you first this time. There’s shoes, stockings, sweater dresses, and cute furniture pieces to decorate for the cold seasons ahead. For this post, I will be putting the credits after each series of photos to avoid confusion since there’s so many items pictured.

With the temperature dropping, I’ve had to find new socks and stockings to keep my toes warm. Luckily, Sweet Tea Couture made a couple cute stockings along with cute garters that come with omega and slink appliers. The garters are resizeable to fit any avatar. Here I’ve paired it with a romper from Blueberry so you can see how high one set go, plus I just love this little romper for hanging about the house or a quick jaunt out with the kids. I’m also wearing a pair of ankle boots from Euphoria Couture’s WSH2 Gacha machine. For the other pair of socks, I wore a pair of Blueberry jeans, a sweater from Kita’s Sideshow, and the ultra rare Nordic Winds Boots from Euphoria Couture’s gacha. The gacha ankle boots are made for slink flat feet and I think I found my new kicking-it-around boots.

While I was dressing, I happened upon the hunt gift from Euphoria Couture which my sl hubby seemed to like as he was more than happy to cuddle for a bit while I snapped a few pictures. The shirt is roomy (as if I’d stolen it from my husband’s closet) and comes with a pair of bootie socks to keep your toes warm. On my legs are the rain socks from TRASHED that come with Omega, Slink, and TMP appliers. I like these because the rain drops go all the way down the leg. TRASHED is also giving out the shark socks seen in the second picture which come in multiple sizes to fit anyone’s feet. The piece we’re cuddling on is a mudroom shelf with cuddles from Magnum Opus; with singles and couples poses, I can see this being useful outside in some tucked away corner of the yard.

Next I decided to try on a sweater and legging look with boots from Country Couture. The sweater fits nicely and the leggings come with many applier options including omega. No worries about needing mesh feet either; they’re resizeable and quite waterproof. I added a necklace and earrings set from Redrose Jewellry. The jewelry set are cute little socks that catch the light at just the right angle. Female and male versions are included. The fireplace in my living room from Love Everlasting Plantpets was so warm I didn’t even have to sit too close to it and it is perfect for a mountain lodge or getting ready for the winter holidays. Don’t forget to put your Hot Cocoa and cookies tipjar out for Santa. And if you get sleepy after a big dinner, An Lema’s Chaise lounge offers a relaxing spot to rest.

For my next look I am wearing a sweater dress from WICKED that I absolutely adore. It has a nice fit, is elegant and chic, and warm! I was pleased again with WICKED’s hunt gift. The heels from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes fit nicely once I resized them with the included script and gave my outfit a soft feminine touch. Some of the other shoes pictured on the steps are from Lindy Mondern’s gacha machine but are not mesh feet friendly if that is what you are looking for.

Well it looks like I found something to wear. Time to step outside! An Lema’s rug makes a great welcome mat and Love Everlasting’s gacha tree cozies make for an inviting front porch. If you’re the type of person who loves to decorate early, make sure to snag the hunt gift from Magnum Opus. This snowman is a whimsical addition to any yard. Due to a recent snow my house experienced, I opted for my new sweater from !Mutiny in Heaven, new knit leggings from .miss chelsea. I got at Uber, and ankle boots from REIGN. The sweater comes with two knotted sweaters that fit around your shoulders or waist. Even with some belly showing I was warm as could be. Okay, stepping out into the cold now. I’m ready to stay warm in the winter. ūüôā

Have fun hunting!

Gonna Let it Burn

Gonna Let it Burn

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

The Warm Socks Hunt 2 & Gacha Event hosted by Fi’s Hunts runs from¬†November 5-30 and it looks like the designers came up with some cozy warm goodies for the chilly weather we’re having. While I am not fond of the cold, it’s a great excuse to wear fun boots and curl up by the fire. Here’s a glimpse at what you can find in the event. Links and hunt details are at the bottom of this post.

This hunt has lots of cozy knits and Mishmash Fusion did a wonderful job with the texturing of the gift sweater dress and the gacha sweater dresses. The gift at Mishmash Fusion is a cute grey sweater dress with grey fur lined uggs and leggings (omega applier included) with detailing on the side. Myst’s gacha has several fun chevron sweater dresses that you can wear with the leggings and boots from the hunt gift. My personal favorite is the Bold Purple RARE. ‚̧

With the cold coming upon us, you might be looking for something to warm your house. Look no further! Well, after you find the hunt gift anyway… {Sickly SWEET} has a nice low prim fireplace to snuggle up in front of with warm crackling flames amidst freshly cut logs. I’ve adorned its mantle with other items from the event.

On the wall is a cute picture from Chiana Oh. If you have kids or are just looking to decorate for winter, this framed image would make a great focal point in any home. If you’re going out in the cold weather, try one of the Winter Warmers from Chiana Oh’s gacha machine. It comes in both a rezzable and wearable version in an assortment of styles. Dr. Who fans will be happy to spot a Doctor related one. (See it behind the monkey?) The sock monkey is one of many monkeys in a gacha from *Shabby Tabby* and are a great use of old worn out socks from winters past. I especially love *Shabby Tabby*’s gift Lumanaries; they are adorable candle holders that can be turned on and off and create a warm atmosphere. Put these little beauties anywhere you need a spot of light.

That is all for now. Stay tuned for another post on the Warm Socks Hunt soon!

Wake Me Up…When September Ends…

Fi's Hunts - Autumn Love Hunt - POSTER IMAGE

Mid-October, and I’m already wishing time would slow down so I can enjoy my favorite season longer. Which is why Green Day is on my iPod replay. Nothing suits nostalgia and reflection quite like their song “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” If you’re looking for something to do this season, I’m bringing you more peeks into the hunt gifts laid out for the Autumn Love Hunt today. I just can’t help getting excited about these cute gifts! From flirty dresses and sexy heels to a relaxing lounge with a lakeside view. This hunt has it all.

First, a quick shoutout to antonialyons for nominating my blog for a Liebster Award. Thank you so much! ūüôā I didn’t even  know what it was at first but I am very grateful for the bloggy love! Check out her blog here. Now on to the gifts!

If you’re like me, you like a nice view outside your window when you’re lounging about the house. SANNAs Mainshop created a beautiful full perm texture and script plus demo builds of a beautiful animated lake view. To enjoy the view? I relaxed on a chaise lounge by HJM Designs. Perfect for enjoying a book and cup of coffee, this chaise is also good for cozy cuddles. Need more lounge room? Try the daybed by Twilight Designs. It’s comfy and the couch even pulls out into a bed. If you’re looking to sit outside to enjoy the crisp autumn air, An Lema designed a quaint porch set that comes with a nice side table and mirror encircled with a wreathe to add a soft touch to any home.

I could not decide on what outfit I liked most for this post. Each outfit is fun in its own way. The first dress is a flirty little number by GET FROCKED and I paired it with the Zeva Red heels by Lindy Mainshop. I also painted my nails with [Rad Designz] Fall nails for Slink and Belleza. I love the color options of these nails and the detail is stunning. The second dress I tried on is by Mishmash Fusion and I will admit I am a purple addict. This dress is darling and comes with matching flats that make me want to skip through leaves!

Tube top, short skirt, and high heel boots, **Cheeky Parrot Boutique** has a cute outfit that is perfect for lunch with the girls while bustling about town. The last piece I wore is a plaid shirt by WICKED. It fits so nicely and looks great with jeans. Simple, yet sophisticated, this top gives a nice mood boost, especially if you’re exploring those creepy haunted houses this time of year. Yikes! But not to worry, =EC Designs= has two gachas for this hunt. One of these gachas gives you a cute batfriend to rez that follows you about. I’m a bit of a scaredy cat so I decided to get a few more batfriends to take with me!
