With Love Hunt

Winter is full of fun and festive activities, and we are only 2 days into December!  Some of that holiday fun is brought to the grid by CHIC Management’s With Love Hunt.  This hunt is fabulous, and one I looked forward to each year long before I was a blogger.  The hunt items are always so lovely and at only 10L, for the exceptional quality, it’s more than worth it!

December brings about the need to feel cozy, comfy and warm.  Bundling up and spending time with your friends, family and loved ones by the fire, while the snow falls softly outside, blanketing the world in white.  Sadly we do not get snow in Hollywood, but like so many things that I am unable to experience in my real world, SecondLife makes it possible.

I’ve been rather sick, so forgive the delay in bringing this great hunt to my humble little blog.  As many of you know, Mrs. Raynier and I have been struggling moreso with our varying illnesses, and spending far too much time laid up sick in bed than either of us can stand.  That also cuts our time together down, which makes us grumpy and sad.  We try to stay connected as much as possible, through texts and little short calls.

This great pose and prop by Adorkable Poses made me think of our text messages to each other, little sweet silly things to make each other laugh, messages to say hey, I am thinking of you and love you.  That has been ongoing quit a bit for us this weekend since I came down with a horrible stomach flu and on top of it, I have the good old fashioned flu.  The combination has been brutal and I am likely rambling since I have a fever and feel like road kill, so forgive my chatty fingers.

So many items in the With Love Hunt are for home and hearth.  I absolutely love the chalkboard from Evolve, it truly had the perfect message for this whole hunt and my sappy heart.  The kitchen set from floorplan is simple yet so lively, with color change table and varying colored chairs, you can surely find a place for it.  The entertainment center is from Alouette and is so detailed, with that same cozy feel that really all the hunt items posses in my eyes.  The Manhattan table lamp is from Apple Fall which always produces amazing items, the shade alone is so detailed, you really get lost in the map pattern.

My ring is from Kunglers, it’s rather gorgeous with an earthy boho feel.  It comes with a matching necklace too!   A great his and hers winter set from SAKIDE is also available at the hunt.  I am wearing the SAKIDE First Frost Pull in grey and it just has the look and feel of a well made Aran knit sweater aka Irish knit sweater.  My comfy fun  reindeer slippers are from EPIC, I don’t think I will take them off anytime soon, just look at that face!

I topped my hunt look with an item from the Arcade, the coveted Miamai_TCS_Unicorn SUPERRARE Sparkles hat!  Because if anything can make me feel better, it has to be a unicorn hat!

Forgive my laziness but I’m going to leave out credits as I am wearing what I usually do, and have listed out the hunt items in my rambling.  All slurls to the hunt participants can be found here.

Have a great rest of your weekend and happy hunting!

Vintage Fair Preview-evolve & 22769: We Could Be Heroes

Only a couple more days until  Vintage Fair 2012 opens!  BellaStarr Fheng aka Bella of evolve poses has created and exclusive for Vintage Fair that I had a great time using in this photograph.  I love evolve poses, they are versatile, flow beautifully and it’s no surprise as Bella is an amazing photographer.

From the moment I saw Bella’s ad I knew what I wanted to do, the image started forming.  Add this great mesh army shirt from the talented boys at 22769 and that image in my mind came to full light. The end result is not too shabby!

I had the absolute pleasure of spending the early afternoon with BellaStarr Fhang.  I have admired Bells blog ohhmaiblog and her exceptional photography for some time.  I love to see what great looks she will put together, how imaginative her scenes can be and the way they simple have such life.  Along the journey of watching her blog, her images have evolved and become better and better.

But have you heard, she has opened a great little cozy pose shop called evolve.  I am enjoying her poses so much, they are fun and well created and very suited for photographs!   I urge you to head over to her shop in world and take a look.  Watch for her upcoming releases for Super Bargain Saturday too!
