It’s time to clean up. (Reminder & Hunt).

This post is just to remind you to do the Valentine Shop & Hop as normally they go on for a lot longer while this event ends on the 15th.

Fortunately, it has quietened down a lot which meant I was able to go crazy and grab all the goodies. Since a lot of the shop credits have to be spent within a time limit I’m going to spend the rest of today and tomorrow doing just that plus trying to clean up all my folders with Shop n Hop gifts that I’ve hoarded since last year.

PS. Shi. one of my friends, dropped me a note that the Harshlands is celebrating its 8th year anniversary with a hunt. All you need to do is hunt down the musical symbol. I think the gifts are all musical instruments and since I already own a folder of them I think I may give this a miss. You, however, may just enjoy finding the goodies and of course, since you have to hunt all over the sim you will see some very interesting landscaping/home and decor items for sale.

It’s so late! (Freebie Hunt).

I’ve not really been paying much attention to any hunts and now I’m a bit annoyed as this one looks particularly interesting both in the freebies, items for sale and the way the whole event has been laid out and now it’s almost over.

As I have found over the years esp when a lot of time and detail has gone into the layout of an event you still have a few days grace of finding the goodies.

I’m going to give you the link to both the Syndicate Events Blog and the blog page where you can read more details and you can get the LM for the start of the hunt from there..

BTW If you don’t want to do the hunt then there are freebies, mainly furniture and decor. At the base of a lot of the carriages is a box and in the box is a goodie.

A Shopping Carol Hud. (Freebies).

As soon as I saw this pose I had to buy it as it’s how I often feel when doing a hunt.

The Freebie is the skirt, however, scroll past a few older posts for the info on the excellent cardigan and of course, it’s a Mina hair/scarf if you want to recreate this look.

The “A Shopping Carol Hud” just turned up in my invent so I wore it and it looks like it shows you a picture of an item for sale and the next picture is the hunt prize? As usual with these huds just click on the picture and it TP’s you to the shop. A nice mix of stuff inc home decor.

To get this skirt it’s the Faida shop you need to TP to. You get a nice amount of colour options so it can be worn all year round and I will say that the lace edging is pretty darn good.

The Shopping Carol Hud can be found in the shops involved and I’ve also put the link to the Marketplace shop so you can pick it up from there. What you’re looking for is a golden bell on a red ribbon.

PS. Naturally, check out to see if there are group gifts such as the ones in the Faida shop so you can score more goodies.

“Sure you want to cheat?” Hell Yeah! (Free Hunt & Freebies).

As I was scrolling through my notes/notices I came across one from Shi and I’m so glad I spotted it as she did send it to me a few days ago and yeah I sure as heck want to cheat as the hunt prizes from the Trompe Loeil shop are worth it!

Obviously, this is a home, garden, beach, decor, builds etc shop. C. Edo (cory.edo)has been so generous these past couple of years especially with their previous “stay at home” gifts and this generosity has continued with the gifts for this hunt. Close by to where I took this picture is a board which shows the prizes and they’re all shop quality. I can see them being dusted off and set out for many Christmasses to come.

This hunt goes on till the end of the month so grab the advent calendar key hunt at the LM and Shi also mentioned that the first 6 gifts are on one sim and the other 6 are on the other sim.

Don’t worry if you don’t want to hunt as there are also a few boards with older Advent gifts, you will find a couple at the main entrance, so you can be lazy and just grab those.

Coffee ‘n’ Carbs. (Freebie(s)).

The title is only about the breakfast I’ve had, coffee and toast, and not this interesting skirt.

It’s always nice to be able to bring something to the blog which is a bit “ooo that’s interesting” and this panel look skirt with its gladiatorial feel to it is certainly that. You get this full version and a half version which is missing the front panel and it barely covers your blushes so I will leave that for you to try out.

This comes from the Fugue shop which also has a stall/gift out for us at the Enchantment Event. There is also a hunt prize out for us for the “Enchantment Hunt”.

Across the way is another shop called NG Designs and it too has an “Enchantment Hunt” prize for us. If I found both of them then you won’t have any problem.

Pay Attention. The Fugue group gift is not on the staircase wall where you think it should be as the group invite is there, it’s simply propped up on the floor. Easy to find when you know it’s there plus it’s hardly a big shop.

Oh Drat, I squinted! (Freebie(sssssss)).

I simply couldn’t wait so I braved the crowd to hunt down all the cakes at the Belle Epoque birthday hunt.

I’m overwhelmed by the amount and quality of the gifts as I made a mistake in my last post because there are 20 Belle Epoque Gifts and I think it’s 10 Gifts from other big designer names in SL.

I actually ended up getting very click-happy and took so many pictures of so many items/outfits it was hard to pick and choose which to show you.

Most of them to me have just a bit of a hint of retro which is why I chose this backdrop.

The fact that there is a lot of clothing is just so generous but even the accessories such as the hat in the first picture are quality and I do love the accessories even if I will never use them.

What I’m not showing you is the full-length coat because I was too cocky and only took one snap only to find when I logged out and then checked the picture did I notice it looked like I was in the middle of a sneeze with both eyes shut. There is also a straw/flower hat which I believe is now a Belle Epoque classic. This is much more of a period piece that needs to be teamed up with a gown rather than a more modern look.

I haven’t even mentioned the gifts from the other shops which I’ve not opened yet as it’s all been too much. The one thing I will say and I’m slightly surprised is that there are no shoes among the gifts and since it seems to have been a long time since I found quality free shoes that’s on my search list when I log back inworld.

Shopping can wait. (Belle Epoque Discount and Mention of FREEBIESSSSS).

I went to Belle Epoque to pick up the special priced “The Saturday Sale” offer and I’m wearing it.

Honestly, who wouldn’t want to wear this both in SL and RL? I would although with that clinging skirt I’d need to wear a strong pair of Spanx. It is a one-piece and you only have a choice of 2 colours this blush pink or a purple shade. Right next to this offer is their regular 30Ld offer and it’s a gorgeous dress with a nipped-in waist and a big skirt which I already own.

Now for the FREEEE…OH, Lordy Lordy Lordy, Belle Epoque is celebrating its 6th Birthday and that means CAKE and GIFTS!!!

As you can imagine the place is heaving. I am going to leave my hunting for another day but before I TP’d out I checked the poster and it’s not just Belle Epoque items a lot of the BIG names in SL have a gift out for us and all we need to do is hunt down the little cakes and buy them for “0Ld’s”. I do believe I saw that there are 20 cakes in total.
