It’s almost spring and love is in the air, or maybe not cause it doesn’t feel like spring where I am. But with this endless winter drawing to a close it’s time to make some noise – and that’s what I’m doing thanks to Balaclava‘s cool drums that you can pick up at the Arcade (75l per play). For those who don’t want to try their hand at the Arcade (or are afraid of blowing all their lindens), yard sales are a good alternative. Two well-organized gacha sales with most of what you could want are found here or here.

The Energy Club has been making noise for three years now and to celebrate they have a mess of gifts out. That’s where I got this excellent mesh outfit from D-Style (matching gift for women) as well as the couch from End of Daze (2nd pic), which I previously blogged but now you can get it free. Go check out the club and grab some gifts while you are there.

Also making noise is LaVie. The skin here is a recent group gift (unfortunately no longer available), but I’m told LaVie has a number of projects in the works including new skin releases, group gifts and perhaps a hunt or two. They have recently reopened in a revamped urban style shopping area with a number of top shops. Good to see they are back and bustling again.

Hints & Slurls for hunts mentioned in this post: Moolto HuntNest’s Easter Egg Hunt

For the decor fans there are amazing hunts on now and I’m sure some of you are already out doing them (Hello Lilith). The Four Walls hunt brings SL’s top designers offering up some excellent gifts that should fit well with your design schemes. Gifts cost 20l so you need to choose wisely. There are too many standouts to name them all, but some of my favorites shown below include a great dresser from Pilot, a cool lamp from Vespertine (one of three), Cheeky Pea‘s hockey items and a fun guitar prop/chair from Zinnias.

Two other furniture hunt options now underway are the Courtyard Hunt (Free) and Cold Winter Nights (10l) You can see previews of almost all the gifts on the various hunt websites.

The avi shown below is from Peau, a new skin store for men, and can be found for the super nice price of 55l at Fi* Friday (ends sometime Wednesday), which is  a great weekly source of edgy fashion.

The latest Mens Dept round has been underway for a while and it features another nice skybox from [Deco] that is great for entertaining with plenty of room for a pool table recently released by End of Daze. And since billiards are best played à deux, some charming company was clearly in order. Of course, after breaking in the table, the evening progressed to other games…

Note that the female fashions are partly from the Golden Apple Hunt, which is a nice little hunt on the NYC sim through December 24 with 12 pretty amazing gifts at a small price of 12l each (see pics of all gifts on the hunt blog). Also both the Essences female skin from TDR Fusion and the shape from Anna Shapes at Designer Circle are in sales ending some time later today, but Essences has just released a new group gift skin and Anna Shapes has a similar shape gift in the Amarelo Manga Christmas hunt (go into each store and find the Santa hats).

I’ve focused more on the female side of things here, but I’ll have a bit more Mens Dept fashion and some general views of the build in a later post.
