Hunts

Notting Hill

Notting Hill Villages

I was going to make this a purely Look of the Day post, but then I saw on Flickr this cool location. Since fall is my favorite season, I am always on the lookout for places that are decorated for the season. You can find more about Notting Hill on this post that Elvira made. I will add that you will probably have one more day to visit, if I did my math correctly ^^

When I arrived, it took a bit to rez because of all of the detail on the sim. I loved all the colorful trees and the leaves on the ground, as well as the little areas such as the bike stand and apple stand. The only thing is, I think you would need a computer with superior graphics to truly appreciate the sim. When I got inside the gates, I couldn’t really walk. Riding around for some reason was easier, especially when I dropped my draw distance all the way down.

I started off using the region setting of the sim, but then when I got inside, it seemed too dark. That’s why the lighting seems different in each picture. Overall, I think it’s a great sim, and the lucky people who get to reside there will certainly have fun in Notting Hill!

Autumn Leaves hunt

 

Sightseeing at Sacred

Hello everyone! Have you all done the Autumn Leaves hunt over at ghee? If you haven’t, you still have time! The hunt started on September 19th, and you have all the way up until November 30th to do the hunt. But why would you wait so long when you can wear some of these items now for only 10L each?

 

ghee Autumn Leaves Hunt

 

I think it is hard to find quality hunts nowadays in Second Life, but I think there is something for everyone here. Nails, shoes, coats, sweaters, hats – everything you need to look fashionable for this SL season.

The sim that I am on is called Cherry Waves. Sophia Harlow was kind enough to let us explore her sim for a short period of time. If it’s still open, I would go check it out – it has all the elements for what you would want in an autumn sim. I even found the famous coffee shop from 8f8 – one of the popular items from last month’s Arcade ^^

Today I decided to go with minimal makeup for a bare and fresh look. I imagined if it was early in the morning on a typical fall day and it was a lot of mist outside, I probably wouldn’t feel like dressing up too much because of the weather.

See you next time!

Summer fun @ ghee

ghee –  solid bangles (black)

Hey everyone! How is everyone doing on the summer solstice? The summer solstice is when we have the longest day of the year, and the shortest night (in the northern hemisphere, anyway). Also, this marks the first day of summer! So what better way to spend day one of summer than at ghee?


ghee – Sandals (white)
 ghee – Essential Drape Top (white)
ghee –  Essentials Drape Skirt (white)
ghee –  solid bangles (black)

There is a hunt currently at ghee where if you find all 21 items, you get to have the Summer Essentials collection at a great bargain! You can find each item by looking for a blackjack playing card. The cards are not just found inside of the store, so make sure to explore the sim. I found some nice places to hang out in my travels, as you can see from the pictures. I also bought some sandals that were at the store – they are not part of the hunt, but go with the items splendidly. The sandals are meant to go with Slink high feet, so if you have those feet, have a look at the shoes :)

For more information, visit the ghee website, and check out to see what else that they have!

Black & White Portrait Challenge

Just me :p

Hey everyone! I decided to do another one of Berry’s challenges. I had just taken a photo for the Mingle date auction, so I thought this would be perfect to just desaturate the photo in picmonkey and go from there. This is the original photo:

Now, what is Mingle, you ask? Here is an excerpt from the notecard that is being given out to everyone:

The creators of Havenhollow proudly present its 2nd holiday installation: Mingle.

February 1st we open our interactive hud-based event. Complete the Mingle hunt with your HUD and receive access to some amazing prizes generously offered by some of your favorite designers!

Mingle encourages you to do just that! To complete some of the HUD’s hunt tasks you will need to find someone to do them with! This is your chance to make memories with new friends and old.

The fun won’t stop there with a transferable item gift shop to pick something up for you and your sweetheart.

If you don’t have a sweetheart, you might find one at the Mingle Date Auction. Gussy up and get ready to Mingle!

And let me tell you – there are a lot of prizes to be given out! Don’t forget to wear you HUD when you go to collect all of the goodies!
