Phew PANIC OVER because my sh*t has got its act together and I’m prepped, packed and raring to go which is a shame as I don’t go until tomorrow. That does mean I’ve had a bit of time in SL to grab a lovely freebie, a cheeky bargain and STRIP the sim back to its bare bones.
Say goodbye to this little stone as he’s just about to be deleted and he doesn’t even know it!
I popped into La!La Fashion to stand in front of the lucky balloons so as I worked through any notes/notices before I go I might also strike lucky on the Lucky Balloons which I didn’t. However, I didn’t walk away empty-handed as this dress is a gift in the La!La shop but for SL free’s & Offers group members. I have a feeling that I might have shown you this dress before but it’s still worth going to grab as it’s a lovely simple dress with a delicate texture and those folds look so realistic. You will find it on the wall next to the desk and you will also find other gifts, a cute short and top set, for other groups. However, if you join the La!La group then you will see on the wall next to the Lucky Balloons is a whole lotta freebie’s and I do believe one of them is new.
This is the cheeky bargain called “my first top” and it’s in the La!La shop and yup it’s very cheeky and at 25Lds a bargain. I’m only sad there wasn’t a fat pack as I would have been tempted. You get a system shirt layer and appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Bellieza.
OK, The sim isn’t exactly stripped bare as you can see because that’s my house and Faith’s house is still up on the hill. Both Faith and I work in RL and of course have all the day to day drudge which means that since the start of the year we, I mainly, haven’t been able to do much more than chuck a whole load of green stuff around etc and although the sim was looking very nice, NICE isn’t good enough anymore. So it’s gone, animal, mineral and vegetable, it’s either been packed or trashed and all that’s left is our houses and the few items around them that we don’t want to change. This way when we’re both back from our respective holidays we can start off the late summer/early autumn with a sim that has more going for it.
I’ve now got some time to kill and a massive cup of coffee so I checked out the marketplace and came across something I knew I needed if I had known it existed.
As someone who is constantly changing not just clothes but skins and makeup etc all of this gradually corrupts your skin/clothes/applier OK clear as mud but basically it means you end up with applied layers you can’t seem to take off.
Trust me this isn’t a big issue and chances are it will never happen to you because you’re SANE and don’t spend your whole time in SL TPing and stripping and dressing, zooming and camming and then starting it all over again! and of course you may not even have a mesh body or hands but if you do then this little gift from Ashton Tryce’s shop called Avicandy is super handy….damn that rhymed and I didn’t want it to. The actual Hud is called “Empress New Clothes” and it’s a simple Hud you wear and click and any lingering pesky applied clothing.
And here is a bum shot because why not LOL. Actually, zoom up from the pert posterior and you will see the new Mina from my previous post as that retro backcombed look is much clearer in this picture.
URGH, I gotta get my sh*t together and sadly for my SL and Freebie addiction it’s time to log off because yup I’m off on yet another holiday. As I’ve said before me and my OH like to take a lot of weekenders/midweek breaks throughout the year instead of just the one biggie and often we don’t even go away with each other BUT for this one we always do. Our 5 days in a cabin in the woods which tbh is hardly roughing it as it’s at a Centre Parcs resort lol. So lots of swimming, biking, using the sports centre and of course EATING which is something I excel at.
Since SL is such a major distraction and I have got so much to sort out with RL work and home stuff I’ve logged off for good till next weekend. However, if I managed to get my “sh*t” together enough to free some SLing time later I’ll log back in and try to find a goodie to leave you with but till then try the “Womanstuff Hunt” I’ll put the link at the bottom with the big list of shops involved and very handy hints and hopefully that will feed you/my/our Freebie addiction.
But never fear because although I can’t remember when Faith is due back I think she will be back and posting sooner than me.
Till then have a great day and even hopefully a great week.BYEEEEE
Womenstuff Hunt LMs & Hints
Blimey I’ve been so busy and I still have so much to do it doesn’t how many “to do” lists I make it doesn’t make the “to doing” any bloddy easier or quicker but I just needed a break from RL and I have not just a great new Mina hair and a new freebie from a shop new to me to show you.
First the Mina, this hair is called Therese and it’s a Gacha win which means that you can get the exact same quality hair pack but instead of full price it’s only 100Lds a try but of course you have to take pot luck on the hair colour. However, since each colour pack comes with 5 shades as standard plus this hair comes with a 6 colour Hud for the hair band plus I’ve never found a Mina hair colour I didn’t like. The bit I was trying to show you a close up of is how the hair drapes around your ear in such a natural and cute way and I’ve failed but when or if you try the demo out make sure to zoom in on that cuteness.
For the moment this hair is only at the Whimsical Gacha event but although I’ve not checked yet I know that Mina tries to get the Demos out in her main shop for you to try them on because some of these events are packed for ages and so I will put the LM down for her shop so you can try it out in lag free heaven and even use the TP from her shop to the event if you want.
The skirt/top is a single item which is a shame for me because as separates I can see them working with so many other items in my invent. Check out the skirt, all those folds and pleats give it a great look and I’ve taken the picture in my Nams, original prim n skin setting. This is a free to join group gift from a shop called Yeliz and even though a lot of the stock is standard mesh designs there is more than enough new ones and the use of texturing made me check out the whole shop and if it wasn’t for the fact that at the time I grabbed this I was still having SL problems I would have actually picked up a couple of items as a lot of things aren’t just at bargain prices of 99Lds a lot come with MASSIVE Huds! I’m dreading going back into LM grab as SL is FIXED and I can now spend Lindens! What I might do is TP in LM grab and then TP straight to my platform and unpack all of the demos I grabbed on my first visit.
Hopefully, I will have my Mojo back tomorrow and I will keep my Mina hair on and be able to not only show you anther great freebie but a close up of the hair.
Mina Mainshop(yes the Demo is out)
ohhhmai gawd – I popped to Duh the other day – and it was GONE! Just to check, naturally I teleported there a few more times – nope definitely vanished. No fear though I tracked the new location down – thank goodness! I don’t know what Id do without my Duh fix each month. I always trot over to check out whats new or what I’ve missed, or what I need just a fewwwwww more colours in ! Brilliant stuff at very affordabubble prices. Soooo what did I grab with my sweaty little paws? How could anyone resist the new range of lunchboxes? Rez them out as they are only 2Li each, or actually wear them – $10L a pop lots of colours. I also loved the “classy” bags, more of a tote size I guess – dead handy. Nice stud detailing and only $25L , then I spotted the deck shoes or sneakers as some call them, these are for the guys – at $25L a pair the boys can afford to treat themselves right?. New Landmark below, don’t forget to save it !
DUH! (new landmark)
And thats it from me for a week oot oot! Yes, Im taking anotherrrrr holiday, this time a beach one. Weather forecast is awful – however that wont deter me from gorging myself on ice cream and stuffing chips . I know how to live like a rockstar huh? lol
This is the new offering from Stars Fashion “Kaylie”, complete outfit (with a bag that I haven’t shown) includes the following:
– HUD with textures
– Shorts: Slink Physique, Hourglass, Belleza Freya,Venus,Isis
– Shoes: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza
– Shirt: Classic 5 sizes, Maitreya,Slink physique,Hourglass,Belleza Freya,Isis,Venus
– Handbag with hand and shoulders pose
Read whats included carefully girls – and note that there is not a fit specifically for Maitreya in the shorts, although everything else will fit.
All this for just $99L ! What a crackin steal, shoes alone are worth $99L no? Here is the Hud, you get four colours of each piece, so co-ordinate or mix it up, up to you!
This is a limited time promo, then the price goes back up. My appplier fishnets are by Schadenfreude, I did pop over to their store but couldnt find them – I know I bought them at an event last year, however they do have a boatload of other applier based stockings that are equally as cool !

Hair By Monso @ Kustom9
SL is playing up for me so I’m just going to sit here and SULK! but of course look simply FABULOUS doing it.
This hair is a Freebie from Cheveaux and although it’s a small shop leaning towards hair for child AVs there is enough hair for us Big Uns esp if you like young and cute hair. There was a small selection of freebies so as always if you don’t like this one you might like another one.
Also because I click everything I spotted that the perfume bottles on the shelf are freebies as well and will make lovely decor items.
Check out yet another amazing gift from the Cynful Clothing & Co shop. Honestly, it’s a keeper for me, I’m even going to suggest to Faith that she pops over to grab herself this good. Although I’ve edited the piccie a bit it’s 100% quality texturing, coloring and if I remember correctly a fit for all mesh bods and nonmesh bods.
Add to the super generous Group Gifts is the very lucky lucky chairs which come packed with even more shop quality clothes. A great place to stand and work through your notes or have a good chin wag with an SL friend.
OK, I’ve finished sulking and I’m hoping the SL issues I’ve been having will have sorted themselves out.
