More Summer Magic

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have part 2 of the Welcome To Summer Hunt, lots of goodies to enjoy. Just keep looking for that delicious looking blended drink :)

This prize from Kitties Petite Dreams (#11) is called American bikini with acc, and apparently the 'acc' is the accessories which include the sunglasses and flip flops :) I edited the position of the flip flops to work with Slink flat feet, but they're probably meant for default avatar feet. As you can see from the side/rear view, that is a thong under the denim shorts, so for some family friendly sims you might need to leave the shorts on. The front of the thong has an American flag to match the bikini cups. Now the beach ball jewelry I'm wearing is a separate prize from Dressed by Lexi, who are #15 in the hunt. That includes the necklace, belly piercing, and earrings that you can't really see but feature the same colorful beach ball. 

My very pretty dress, short in the front and a bit longer in the back but still summery, is from MadCatCreations, and they are #16 according to the hunt blog. Words of warning here, I found 3 different hunt items (that fruity drink) in different buildings of the store and one was set for $1L but the other two were for free, and all contained the exact same prize. So I recommend that if you find the $1L first, keep looking and grab a $0L one instead!! It is supposed to be a $0L hunt so I'm not suggesting anything shady or trying to cheat anyone out of any lindens, rather trying to save you from spending an unnecessary linden :) My necklace is a unisex surfer necklace from !IT! and contains a resize menu. You can get a better view of the pretty seashell in the inset of the picture, also the lovely beads. They are #17 in the hunt.

How gorgeous is the color of this dress? :) Unfortunately it did serve to remind me that photographing flexi skirts and sleeves is a real challenge, I'd be embarrassed to admit how long it took me to find the right pose. Second life first world problems?? LOL! This is prize #12 from SweetRed's Designs, and is great if you don't care for mesh and don't use mesh bodies or bits. The floaty nature of the skirt definitely speaks to the summer theme of the hunt.

I headed home to show you the things that needed to be rezzed out, and returned to the outfit from photo 1 above. This is the prize from Whimsical Happenings #18, and includes the sweet butterfly bench (4 poses) and matching plant, and even the Porch Rules wall art behind me. I really love this generous prize and would gladly follow all the porch rules :)

One final goodie I'd like to share with you from this hunt is the prize from Carnal Cabal, #6 in the hunt, and their clever firefly jars. Rez them on the ground, right click and the menu will offer you a choice to "relax", this cute pose holding the jars and lids is the result. It is BRIGHT, like a facelight convention bright, but that's what fireflies do, they light up :) The lids say Fire Flies, and there are a few spots of light (above and to the right of the jar in my hands, you can see one) reminiscent of the little cuties. In my neck of the woods, we call them lightning bugs, but by any name they are the source of some fond childhood memories (catch and release!) and seeing them each year is a reassuring sign of warmer weather arriving.

Nail notes for tonight, I've used the Nail It Good! prizes that I blogged yesterday, details as always in the credits. Hair note, I did indulge in some retail therapy and bought myself a new hairstyle after a stressful day, and it did actually help a bit. Full price unfortunately, but I decided I am worth it, as are all of you :)

Today is one of those days where I need to remind myself to think positive, find the happy moments to treasure, and hug someone you care about :) Virtual hugs count, so consider yourselves all hugged!!
