Clicking pays, so I was in a shop called Ravens Blade and the first couple of gifts are on the counter desk but I’m glad I decided to have a quick looksee around this shop because otherwise I would have missed the other shopping bags which are on the floor and when I clicked on them they too turned out to be Free to join GG’s and so I managed to snag a whole armful before I TPed outta there.
So I unpacked, tried on and then binned, NOT that the stuff I binned was bad but because sometimes it’s hard to show you everything, sometimes I just like to leave you a few surprises and also I basically run out of SL time LOL.
But as soon as I unpacked these 2 lovely prezzies I knew they were IT. So a quick change and a quick TP to my fav beach sim and voila.
I almost pixellated part of this picture because the bikini bottom is very, very low (stop squinting!) but in the end I decided to leave it mainly so you could check out the mesh em mesh LOL. You get a system layer bikini set without appliers so you can’t wear this look with a Mesh Body or you could simply use a different bikini under the mesh sash and top.
I was dead chuffed to hear that Seldom Blue is revamping their Lingerie line – appliers yay! I’ve known this store for agessss and the lingerie is really classy and gorgeous. Got a notecard with the new LM to the new store, so headed over for a peek. At the moment only this set is ready to roll with appliers (Omega & Slink) and in this colour its on offer for just $1L . Perfect for Valentines day & night huh? There are many other colours available, at $200L per set, I will be keeping an eye open for more appliers soon.
A little Vday hunt is happening right now over at Tihuta Square, this scrummy corset is the gift from ORQUIDEA, also up for grabs is a lovely shape which I am actually wearing above (unusual for me, I generally keep my own shape on all.the.time) I couldn’t wear my Slink Physique mesh body with this as no matter what shape I wore I had a tiny teeny patch at the front that gapped – so here I am in the buff so to speak ! My hair is brandspankin new from Kokolores, it’s called Berlin, lovely little up do !
I did actually find a few hunt gifts at the Square, love love LOVE this sweet heart splattered teddy from Emerald Couture. If memory serves me right, its got fitted mesh, maitreya and slink included yippeee! I’m wearing it over my Slink mesh body and its a fabulous fit. While you’re there hunting make sure to check out the lucky chairs, I scored a really nice pair of Slink sandals for the summer .
Seldom Blue NEW location
I’d popped into Noble Creations, a shop which is for those who are into their Medieval, Fantasy SL lives this is a place to die for, actually even if you’re not the quality of the items here would fit into any home. I’ve spotted a fantastic well and fountain that I want to check out but since they’re only available at the Fantasy Faire which basically is so packed at this moment I can’t get onto the sim but I’m hoping the prim and price are so reasonable because I can see them on our sim. However I was so happy with the New Freebies, and I was also happy to see the old Freebies were also still out as they’re well worth picking up as well.
Taken in my Nams setting so you can clearly see the graining of the wood that this chest is made up from..
An “Olde Worlde Globe” with scrolls inc
I might keep the first two items but probably just as props but the moment I rezzed the free standing steps it was a BIG YES off me! I have a couple of builds which are missing steps upto them and I can see this little beauty fitting them perfectly. I don’t think this picture is showing the real size of these steps I think they’re looking a bit small almost foot stool size which they’re not but I’m hoping that you can mod them in anycase so they can be fitted to so many things. Even better all the quality in these items comes at a single prim count!
Not a vast collection in this shop which is a shame as again the quality of the texturing is so good but there is enough to furnish your whole house but I also have to mention the fabric draped bath tubs a common enough design in SL but these ones are unqiue
I popped over to the latest round of FaMESHed event to check out “Ginny”which is of course a New Mina hair. I’ve kept this picture a KISS (keep it simple stupid) as I just wanted to show off my whole look as it really looks in MY SL world ie Nams Optimum Skin n Prim setting. Ginny is one of Mina’s simple and wearable hairs, with just the right amount of hair covering your face, a nice thickness to the back it’s just basically SL hair at its most realistic. What isn’t so realistic is how at the click of the Hud you can change the colour to whatever mood you’re feeling that day what a shame RL isn’t like that LOL.
As always I’ve put the link to her mainshop because there is so much more there to see and again I sauntered off into her mens hair and I actually started to count how many of these “mens” hair I actually own and wear because they’re so good on both sexes!
OK it’s a reblog for this top because its way too good not to rant on about, check out the second picture and you will see that it comes with the jacket but very handily for me both items come as separates and I had binned the jacket but only because I have way to many things and I knew I would get much more use out of that excellent strappy t-shirt. Both items come with colour changing Huds and that’s the same with the SLink shoes you can see in the 3rd picture. For the jacket/t-shirt you will have to join the SLoffers & frees group and the shoes the NoName group but both GG inviters are both right there to make it easy to join.
PS that brown lippie is one of the make up packs I bought from one of my recent blog posts Livia and it cost me the princely sum of…5Lds! Remember that all their lippies and nails are extremely reasonably priced ie cheap and you even get the Mesh Head Appliers for the Lippies! Lots of demos for you to try and of course some freebies so if you haven’t been tempted yet you might be with this one.
What I also like about both of the NoName freebies and that incs the shoes, is that the colour palette in each item is also complimentary to each piece of clothing so you can wear either the same colours or contrasting colours and yet they will still match each other.
PS If you have an old LM for NoName don’t use it because it’s been temporarily relocated to the…MOON! so use my LM.

Oh la la a new round of Perfect Ten has begun, and its jam-packed with romantic goodies for the month of February – 50% discount (or more in some cases!) when bought at the event. So so so above is part of a set by Finishing touches, PG or Adult versions, and I have to say the Adult one is exceptionally lovely. The main upholstery is a sort of soft veined leather, with happy plump studs trimming the edges of the bed and chairs. Lots of scope to fiddle as its also got heaps of texture options for the fabrics yay!
This is the other chair form Finishing Touches, its got a blanky laid over the arm which always looks so stylish. The vase of heart-shaped flowers is by Lunar Seasonal designs. You get a gazillion (or thereabout) choices for the vase colour, the flower colour and also lighting effects. The vase of antique pink roses and pearls and the décor love block is by The mustard seed, they’ve got oodles of pretties out this round.
Little close up of the Finishing Touches set so you can see the gorgeous textures that have been used all over it. Its simply SO romantic I might go all swoooooony!

This isn’t my normal sort of post, don’t worry oodles of great freebies coming up soon, but I’ve finally managed to log into my Flickr account and no I wasn’t banned for bad behaviour LOL so now I’m having to upload a lot of the pictures I’ve used which can sometimes be a bit boring BUT sometimes you come across pictures by other Flickr and SLers which make you go Wow and Skippy Beresford is one of them.
I’m not big on kid AV’s or RPing, Faith would fear the life of any SL child/baby left in my care but that doesn’t mean to say that I think it’s a bad thing it’s just not my thing and then we have Skippy. I know nothing of him except he does amazing, beautiful, childish picture full of joy and fun and occasionally even a little bit of sadness. When I see a new picture off him I always spend a few moments just admiring the skill of his workmanship plus the joy his little character seems to get out of his SL life.
So if you’ve never “Flickred” before try it because there are many SL groups in there and you may even get inspired enough to try your hand at taking pictures and Flickr for the most part is free, you only pay for a pro account, however you do need a yahoo email addie but that’s just to post pictures. So I’m putting the link here for not just Skippy’s Flickr but also mine and Faiths because sometimes if you don’t want all my “Spamminess” you could just check out the pictures and see what’s been posted.
A new round of The Challenge has begun and it’s really a fantastic theme this time. “Farm” is the theme and I’ve got some great garden type treats to share with you . Above is the Farm shed from Black Tulip, 100% original mesh and really low prim (uhm 27 I think) The doors open to reveal a spacious interior, so plenty of room to fill up with your gardening and ground work gear.
22769 have some adorable vege beds to scatter around, cabbages, carrots, beetroots & lettuce plus an empty one incase you’ve got your own vegetables. Just 2Li and so realistic – I know I will be using these in my SL garden for sure! Little teaser above of the huge amount of pieces from Cleo Designs. I adore the little tray, probably because I just LOVE french cheese.
Cleo Designs has released this collection for your garden / farm. The bench is super comfy and ever so pretty with its casually tossed blanket over the back and plump cushions to rest upon. There is also a hen-house with chickens, couple outside that are not linked so you can place them wherever you wish, and some inside with a nest of cracked eggs. There’s baskets of fruit, freshly collected eggs in a tin carrier and of course a small cold-frame with some plants getting ready to be planted outside.
Last but certainly not least is the “makeshift sink” by %Percent. Its simply gorgeous to look at, and its also animated yay! Lovely poses to wash your hands from a days hard graft in the garden plus others. The tap works and also drip drip drips, nice touch is the dripping sound – dead cute. Li of 9 and soft linked – which means you can mess around with the parts and position them as you please.
