Hey everyone! March came around pretty quick. There’s so much going on this month that I will be hopping around like a bunny! Fi’s The Chicken Egg Hunt starts on March 10th and the Wash Cart Sale starts on March 16th. Today, though, I am featuring a Twisted Hunt item and an item that is NOT for children. All images are safe for viewing but context is for 18+ only, so here’s your heads up! Continue reading

Down in the Underground: The Black or White Hunt

Hello my lovelies! I hope your new year is off to a good start. New Years always brings about the reminder that we can change and we have choices. Choices that have much power to influence our future. (I’ve been drawn to the Dark Side hehe) Fi’s latest hunt is the Black or White Hunt which offers two hunt paths to choose from. Black is difficult while white is easy. All shops have two gifts set out, one for each path, but they ARE NOT the same gift or recolored versions of the same thing. So what will it be? Black or White? You’re welcome to do both paths of course and why not? The gifts are amazing and I’m going to share a bit about what you can find. FYI hunt links and info below the pictures. 

At Mishmash Fusion, the black gift offers an outfit for women and men. They are so well done as always that I’m dragging my husband to get the men’s as soon as I can. The top for the women’s look is a jacket/top combo so there’s no worries about side boob if you’re wearing a mesh body like I am. Myst, your textures are amazing as always! 😀

My lovely little black dress is from Get Frocked’s black path. Fit was Purrfect and the look? Sexy. You could easily wear this for a date night or make it casual with some leggings.

The lovely Fiona of Fi’s Creations made a darling little dress. Layered sweetly with a cute bow on the waist, you will be doing twirls in this mini dress like I was! Pair it with the right heels to make this a great statement outfit.

My gray dress with the side slit actually came in two versions. The other dress that is included with this one is essentially the same but it is covered in the same pattern as the faux belt on this one. An included leaf necklace with a color change hud completes this look. It’s a touch provocative with just enough class to keep it balanced. I personally cannot wait to see what else Faerietale Designs has to offer in future hunts. (Please Faerie!!!!)

Euphoria Couture is the designer of the last outfit I’m sharing in this post. I was a little worried about the high waisted pants looking odd on me but damn, they make my legs look awesome! This is a great outfit for the working lady on the go. It’s classy and fashionable without feeling stiff. Bonus points for making the zebra print look amazing!

Lastly, the gazebo I’ve been taking all these photos in is the white hunt path gift from =EC Designs=. *waves to Cara and Jaxx* I love it you two! It’s a heavenly piece to sit and think or have a quiet cuddle with a loved one while watching the water. The arched columns are beautifully crafted to surround the pool and its benches. Go find it!!

Happy hunting everyone. And remember there’s two paths to try. Good luck! 🙂

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!
