First post EVER for Baking Cupcakes!

Hello Cupcakes! My name is Pumpkin Saenz and I’m going to be doing a few posts for Baking Cupcakes. I want to take this time to express my gratitude to Miss Calista, Miss Cailin and Miss Laleeta for giving me this great opportunity to write for one of the best SL/freebie-related blogs out here!

Oh my goodness. Have you BEEN to the ghost hunt sponsored by Vain Inc? If you haven't, you better hurry up and get your happy booties down there before it's too late! There are a total of 110 spooky ghosts, each containing an awesome gift (and in some cases--gifts!) as well as a link to where you'll find your next freebie!

Being a Halloween/fall lover (points to her first name), I absolutely LOVE that there are so many pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns included in the freebies! If you love skins, like I do, you will love this hunt. There are a good few awesome skin freebies from the likes of MMS, Splashing Doll, JM:Mai Skin, The Body Politik and a few others. I didn't get a chance to take pictures of all of my treasures, but here are a few of my favorites.

I <3 style="margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 278px; height: 320px;" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_JQ3yqP83bDw/SQf1xHwZGPI/AAAAAAAAACA/jBtJkdd4Gp0/s320/Snappy+halloween_001.bmp" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5262444913850128626" border="0">
Up next is this get-up. I'm posing with a very pale (and quiet) friend that I brought home from the ghost hunt. The very pretty skin is courtesy of Splashing Doll. The skin looks very delicate and soft. I'm what some may call a "skin whore" or a "skin collector". I had never heard of this store before but I was blown away and I will surely be coming back!

The hair. Ah, yes, the hair. Being a big ass Pumpkin myself, my heart started fluttering when I saw two little pumpkins on my head. I think I might just wear this sweet little 'do even AFTER Halloween!

The necklace I'm wearing is from the talented Caroline Apollo of (Caroline's) Jewelry. I have several of her pieces and I have to say that she is one of my favorite jewelry designers in SL. Her freebies are exceptionally cute and are very detailed. I love the little black kitty on the pumpkin!

The shirt & boots are from Designs of Darkness (D.o.D.) and Lazy Places, respectively. I have heard great things about both places, but hadn't gotten a chance to see what they have to offer. These great freebies are tasty little morsels that satisfy even the pickiest hunter. Highly detailed and high quality, the boots are simply wow. The fun camo shirt adds sexiness to the whole ensemble. This shirt is very versitile and could be worn with just about anything (except...you know...a ballgown or something).

Fabulous Freebies:
Skin - Splashing Doll "Violeta"
Hair - +IROLLIC+ "Hello Halloween Pumpkin Hair"
Necklace - (Caroline's) Halloween Pumpkin Necklace
Shirt - Designs of Darkness (D.o.D.) Camo shirt
Boots - Lazy Places "Jax" boots

Fabulous Non-Freebies:
Lashes - Aphrodite Creations
Shorts - Damage

The hunt lasts until October 31st! What are you waiting for?! There are fantabulous prizes to be bought for zilch! By the way, lots of the stores participating in this hunt are also involved in other hunts so you might just spot a pumpkin or two when you're looking for our spooky friends!
