Starting where I left off.

Posted on

I returned to “The Wash” and snagged so many shoes I’m feeling quite guilty but I had also noticed an area packed with not only Freebies on a wall but another fully loaded Christmas tree, the duller brown parcels under the tree contain the goodies and I grabbed and snagged and then went and unpacked.

OK as someone who has an invent stuffed with too much a lot of what I got I binned but that DOESN’T mean you wouldn’t like it esp the cutte skins, but I’m always trying to find that little something that even I go “ooo” at and I found it.

Actually I have to confess I’m only wearing the knitted top.  In my next photo check out the skirt, this top which is mesh comes with a skirt consisting of system pants and a mesh panel, there is also a shirt layer which extends the lovely burnt orange up under the top but it was the top I really want to keep.  Great texturing lovely colours and I’ve simply teamed it with my own clothes.  You of course can choose to wear the full outfit or use them as separates.

I’m still waiting for my RL coat to turn up and yet in SL I seemed to have come across so many.  I was stood in front of a Lucky Board going through my notices and I spotted someone wearing this coat, a quick IM to her and I was off.  Found at Hilly Halen but for this freebie you have to join the SL free’s & offers group which fortunately for me I’m already a member of.  Stunning just stunning, the dark layer underneath at the neckline is part of the coat so now faffing with layers and it goes great with pants but I’m wearing the skirt from the first outfit and you can see it’s a lovely burnt orange colour.

Once you’ve grabbed the SL frees & offers item is then join the Hilly Haalan group.  I snagged these shoes but there are even more goodies there for you to grab.  If you’ve got them all still go over as she has out a Scarlet dropped shoulder boobie baring dress which is divine!  I’m not showing you it because sadly my SL boobies are a little too flat to fill this dress out but when I get back inworld if I find I have some freed up time I might just mod a shape to fill those cups as it’s a sexy long dress.

Both LMs will probably not take you directly to the Freebies but The Wash one is easy as you just walk around till you find the large Christmas tree and for Hilly Haalan just turn right and go into that side of the shop.

“The Wash” is back and fully packed but not with people which is a blessed relied.  Usually it’s packed and I wait till the crush is over but with so much going on it’s started off a little bit slower so I can now spend some time wandering around when I get back in but again because of lack of time I TPed in and just from where I landed I cammed and scanned and grabbed myself some really good goodies and all literally in the same area so can you imagine how much else is out there.

I believe this outfit  is called Snow Flurry and it’s on the B!asta stand.   You get the mesh top and non mesh pants.

The Blah Blah Blah hunt again.  The dress which at first I wasn’t even going to check out  turns out to be an absolutely brill freebie but again you will have to hunt for it.  So, I know there are many events out there but try to squeeze this one in if you have the time.

I’m showing you a close up of the shoes which are from the Lindy stand @ The Wash and as you can see great quality and even better price.  You will need SLink Med feet for these.

Thewash3

I’ve taken a close up of the shoes because as you can see from the label these SLink Med shoes only cost me 10Lds! I saw many other pairs of shoes and as a shoeaholic I’m going right back there when I get back inworld.

WARNING though.  Everything in the Wash sale is or should be priced at 10Lds but I spotted a few items which were priced at 50Lds.  Still a bargain at that price but again if you’re watching the lindens then you might be a bit annoyed if you buy something only to realise it cost you more than you had planned.

LOL I snuck back inworld to grab the LMs and someone offered me, and as it turned out several others a lift on their bike.

bike ride

So of course I hopped on and we went for a little ride around the sim till I sadly had to log off.  I sometimes watch SL “trolls” on Youtube and most of the time their “trolling” is because of others lack of humour so it was so nice to see a group of strangers all just being Daft for a while.

Faith and I have our preferred shops and designers/events etc and we usually don’t step on each others toes but she’s away and I couldn’t help but grab the GG’s from Cest La Vie.

Freebirth

Actually there is quite a few freebies in this picture but sadly not the hair.  A lot of our readers will have noticed the same hair in lots of my recent posts and that’s because yet again another Mina hair that I adore. I’ve already given details of it so this is just a shortened version, a Mina hair available@the Arcade, and now many Arcade yard sales that have popped up, BUT you don’t just get the 1 shade you get a shade pack! Flipping generous esp with the price tag of only 75Lds!!!

That delightful bow and scarf are 2 freebies from Cest La Vie and both come with colour changing huds.  I kept them neutral but there is quite a good selection of textures and colours.  Having looked at the photo I wish I had rearranged the bow just a little bit so you can see how plump it is.  There was other Free to join GG’s but apart from the Apple Beret I can’t really remember what else there was.

The skin is also a FREEBIE from Birth.  A new skin shop, to me, and although I’m a PumeC addict that doesn’t mean I can’t try out others, esp when they’re free.  If I remember correctly you get 3 skins and 2 come with cleavage layers the only difference is the make up.  All 3 come with cool winter colours.  Really nice skins but I think I’m not showing the colours too well in my piccie but again they’re free and all it will cost you to try them for yourself is a simple TP over there.  Please note that this is one of MY Anna’s shapes and there is a shape in the pack given but of course whatever shape you do chose to use will change the overall look and of course taken in my Nams setting.

treeJust in case you haven’t been over to the “we <3 Role Play” event because you’re not into RPing then you will miss out on that pile of freeness under the tree.  You do have join the We <3 to Role Play group to grab.  Not all of the boxes wanted to give me a goodie :-( but chances are it’s giving them out Advent style ie 1 a day but the item I spotted in a post and that I wanted was there and I got it.  It’s a pair of sheepskin gloves from May’s Soul.  I did a post just recently about some great sheepskin gloves that I bought and they’re brilliant but they cost and if you’re a budget minded girl/boy then these and the rest of the freebies here are perfect.

I’ve just done a post about the Blah Blah Blah Hunt which is just spread over a small part of a sim and the 2 shops on that sim and I mentioned about a pair of low riders which I particularly liked but just didn’t have the time to show you, well now I have a bit of time and here they are.

Lazy

Again although there is sooooo much going on and it’s hard to even scratch the surface I’d really recommend trying this hunt as the little Christmas tree’s are so easy to find and each comes with a hint for the next one.  I’m still hoping to get back there and find out what else has been hidden.

Good Morning, yes I did that top picture just before I logged off last night and this morning when I logged in I found this equally as lovely top but unlike the other top in the top picture this top is FREE (enough with the tops!).  Comes from Zaara which basically means it’s “top” quality, sorry couldn’t help myself LOL.  Simply click and join the free group board which is right next to this too.  Sweet, simple and wearable.

PS still wearing my Blah Blah Blah Hunt pants and I’m off right now to get the rest.

OH Lord there is so much going on and so little time to do it all..moan moan moan and then you come across an event where people have spent time and money creating a lovely shopping/mooching experience.

entrance

When you land you walk alone this high snow banked walkway and at the end you have a choice of travelling down on a Walnut shell water ride or a zip line.  I’d go for the zip line if I was you as I managed to crash my Walnut shell into a mesh mess.  A little bit further on and you come across lots of stalls with lots of goodies for sale.  RP(ish) in style but lots of everything for everyone but what makes this one stand out is that every Gacha here only costs 30Lds a pop and look what I won with just 2 tries.

dressgacha

The cape and dress are actually 2 wins from the LE Eira stall and they’re not even the rares!  I was doubly lucky in that I got the same cool green Topaz colour.  So this outfit only cost me 60Lds for the 2 tries but unfortunately they’re non trans! which isn’t supposed to happen with Gacha wins.

Only the Gacha items are 30Lds a go the items on the stalls are variously priced.

PS I have fiddled with the picture a little bit but the dress colour is pretty much unchanged.

PPS I completely forgot about the FREEBIES under the Christmas tree.  Haven’t unpacked any yet but fingers crossed for some more goodies.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I have no idea of where the phrase “easy pease lemon squeezy” comes from but I’m pretty sure it’s something we used to say as kids and it basically means something is easy.

So before I logged off last night the notice came through from Boudoir that their Christmas Group Gift is out and ALL of SL turned up to grab it fortunately I am the Queen of Camming so I bypassed the crown and cammed inside past the crowd and grabbed.

Boudoir

Bright bold and sexy.  The Poinsettia and the bow are add ons and although I’m not wearing the shrug in the next picture there is no way I wouldn’t wear this amazing bow which makes the whole outfit stunning.

Boudoir1

Even though I usually indulge in some editing when something is a freebie I just used my Nams setting because these colours are beautiful.  I’m so sorry I wish I could tell you about the rose encrusted hair because it has such a packed colour option but the shop it came from is now gone.

Time limitations means I can’t tell you much about Boudoir but this is a shop you need to visit when you have some time to spare as it’s just packed with amazing and original designs.

Oops I’ve just noticed that in the second picture the belt has buried itself into me a little bit but that happens sometimes with ridged items. You do have to join the group but that’s FREE.

And then as soon as I came inworld I got a notice from Trompe Loeil and OMG check em out.

tromp

Freeeee Treeee’s.  Ok you only get 2 but since they’re copy I went a bit crazy.  A sparkling tree in a sack you get 2 coloured sacks, shown.  The little winter scene you can see is something I completely forgot about it’s Trompe Loeil’s Christmas Advent Calendar.  The Calender itself is free and I believe it’s only 4 prims, 7 for the tree’s.  However to get the daily items for you advent calender you have to buy a key from a Gacha then rezz the key next to the Advent Calendar in your home and a little door opens are you are sent a lovely goodie.  Having had last years Trompe Loeil calender I know that the items are usually stunning and I will be going back straight away not only to get the LM but also start grabbing the Advent items.

tromp2

This is my gratuitous arty shot although again all of these pictures taken in my Nams setting.

tromp3

Sadly even I will have to remove some of the tree’s I have rezzed, I don’t think 7prims is an unreasonable count for something so beautiful and it looks just as gorgeous on its own or a couple rezzed at your front door will look outstanding.

PS you do have to pay a single Linden for the tree but it is refunded straight away.

UPDATE looks like I’ll have to pop over to the Arcade Event because thats where the key Gacha is to be found.  I reccomend you read the note that comes with the free Calender to make sure you don’t waste your key but remember even if you don’t want any of the gifts the calender on it’s own is a beautiful decor item.

Yeah at last.

Still “trapped” waiting for Mr Postie to arrive but I mooched around SL and then check my notes and groups and just as I was about to give up a notice came through from Blah Blah Blah.  In my opinion a perfect Christmas Hunt in that it’s easy to find the hidden Christmas tree, they’re scattered around the shops and sim but are still within a small area and the pressie are worth finding.

blah

The shoes are mine but I’m pretty sure that there will be a pair in this SLhunt.  I simply grabbed about 5 hunt items and one Dollarbie and the Crimbo gift from under the tree and unpacked.  There is a really great pair of low slung cropped pants with a wide belt that I particularly liked and a “glitter” dress which is actually pretty classy and of course this top and these cropped pants.  Both come with colour changing Hud very impressed with them both.  I should maybe have used a lighter colour for the top so you can see that it has creases and lines which give it more definition.

So sorry can’t remember which was a hunt item which was the Gift under the tree and I found a hidden Dollarbie next to one of the hidden trees so there may even be more Dollarbie hidden one thing for sure is when I get back inworld I will be going back and finding as many as I can but the clues are pretty easy to follow and the little tree’s you’re looking for are a nice spotable size.

The hair is of course a Minas and it’s called Selenia  (and the skin a PumeC LOL).  Honestly when I’m chosing a hair I DO try on more than Mina’s hair, I love so many other hair shops and my invent is stuffed with hairs  but I just keep on comming back again and again to Minas hair.  This one is a simple long hair which because it goes over the shoulders allows you to show off your top but also to wear long hair.  However this is also only available at the Arcade event.  If you don’t want to try your hand at Pot Luck then of course there are ooodles of Gacha Yardsales which a lot of people, me, look forward to so we can pick the exact colour we want.

PS now I’m inworld grabbing the LM it looks like the Dollarbie is part of the “feel my sack hunt” and yes you can have a dirty snigger, what you’re looking for is a little red sack.  I’ll give you the starting LM for that as well.
