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

The Nest’s annual Easter Egg hunt started this weekend and there are some wonderful gifts to be had from select stores on SL’s leading home & decor shopping sim (more previews can be see here). The eggs are hidden throughout the sim, on rooftops and in attics, or scattered in the fields, but they are easily found and there are many of them – most of the participants have put out multiple gifts.

Some of my favorites include the incredibly cute “Eggie” set of mesh figurines from What Next, which range from the dapper Mister Egg to a Geek in goggle glasses or moody Little Miss Monday, who perfectly expresses the Monday-morning blues (there are actually 6 figures to be found – I’ll be going back for my missing egg). Cleo Design’s gifts include a butterfly-laden director’s chair and a colorful set of wall plates that I’ve long needed for my decor and Cheaky Pea’s Mr Whiskers tea set (teapot + cups in a range of colors) should keep you in Earl Grey for days on end.

I’ll have more on the avi I’m using here in a later post (and more decor as well), but for now, in the words of the immortal BB, That’s All Folks

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

It’s always hard to get back to blogging when I’ve been away for a while because I spend so much time catching up on all the events/sales that are underway, but My Attic‘s particularly great February round (ends Feb 28) with its Pop Music theme brought the necessary inspiration to do a little playlist. The collection has awesome stuff for women as well as the very cool “MPop” pose prop from W.Winx that is texture change, completely moddable and lots of fun for doing photos. It paired up well with the Arcade animated video game piece, which is new from End of Daze.

The male avi features an excellent new release skin from Essences – nice to see them concentrating on the male side of things again – available in numerous tones and with various facial hair options. Hair is by Mr  C: designed for “lovers” it was released for Valentines and can be worn by women. Clothing is from Mens Dept and I especially love the cool leather look from Razorblade Jacket with texture change highlights on sale for 150l until Mar 1.

The female stuff shown includes items from various sale rooms (all of which will end soon – the Fi* Friday shorts probably today – so don’t miss out), a nice free skin from MP and two hunt gifts with very different looks that will both fit all the beautiful, busty, Lushious/Tangolicious FT readers out there (i.e. includes appliers): paper.doll‘s dress from the I Love NY Hunt (14l, gifts shown here) and American Bazaar‘s top for HFYIS.

My last post on Four Walls concentrated on some of the rustic items, the grungy even. This time I wanted to feature the more modern gifts – those with clean lines and often modular in concept. Pieces such as Scarlet Creative‘s shelving units (the gift includes numerous versions that you can mix and match) or Breno‘s reading nook (part of a future modular series), work perfectly in Circa‘s “Infinity Cloud” Glass Studio from the hunt, which has cubed rooms off a main living space,  skylights with metallic highlights and panoramic glass windows (Mesh, 29 land impact). Four Walls goes to the end of the month and previews can be seen on the hunt website.

I’m wearing Diego, the new Mesh head from CheerNo, which is on sale at TDR Fusion until Feb 1. In a sense, with these mesh add-ons, be they heads, breasts, hands, feet or other appendages, the avi itself becomes modular, a base to which components can be added or subtracted at will depending on needs. CheerNo’s head is interesting and can give a very realistic effect, but the lack of facial expressions can be a drawback. Some new releases shown below include Mens Dept items, a great shirt from HuHu (available with texture change hud) and an outfit from Apple May Designs, which is marking the opening of its new mens store with everything 50% off just this weekend (the AMD hoodie shown below is available in a different color free in store). Update: was free just for the weekend.
