Belle Epoque – Freebie and cheapie !

Belle Epoque - FREE dress (3 colours)

I’ve caught up with emails now and I was right about that group gift from Belle Époque – sorry if you dashed over and thought you were going to get a free bed ! But but but – it’s changed, so join up (its free) and grab this sweet little frock in three tasty colours. Isnt it just so dainty and adorable?

Belle Epoque - 30L mesh dress with attached robe

I also snapped up the 30L offer whilst I was there, so glad I did as it such a great fit and so different from what I generally go for. Three colours to choose from, I almost went for PINK ! However this gorgeous beige peach caught my eye and that was that. Lovely little store, not a huge amount for sale but I’ve kept the landmark as I feel it might be one to watch.

All for Lexi

Citrus complete outfit with sneakers 100L

If you haven’t already been to The Lexi Project, make sure you don’t miss it. Heaps upon heaps of designers have got together for this fund-raiser for Lexi (owner of Angel Red Couture) to try to raise some cash to help her out with medical bills. Great way to help is go and SHOP ! Most items I saw were 100% donation, which made my heart smile. The outfit above is from Citrus, you get the whole damm thing for just 100L – so that’s ripped and embroidered jeans , sneakers and a vest top ! If you don’t wanna shop, you could always pop a few pennies on her go fund me page listed below.

Refreshed from my recent holiday , Im back to bring you a few of the releases for this months round of The Challenge. The theme is electronics and its REALLY a mixed bag! Above is  a montage of items, plus a free mesh bed I picked up from Belle Epoque , you get four colours and each has poses for a singleton – low prim and perfect for photo props. Group is free to join also – I did notice as I was going through my emails that they have another group gift out , so if the bed is gone might be something different?

I’m NOT going! (New Mina Hair & Freebies).

I think by now most Gacha Addicts will know that the count down has started for the latest Gacha Garden Event and I’m not going! (yeah ok I probably will cave in because I’m weak in the face of temptation).  Fortunately for me Mina Nakamura sent me “Yenna”.

Although I know that Gacha’s are usually set at pretty damned good prices AND Mina Nakamura is extra sweet in that you don’t win just the 1 colour but a colour pack so for example if you win brown you get 5 shades of brown.  Now this so far is all guess-work because I won’t even try to get into this event for a week or so because once the sim is open, tomorrow so don’t go today, it’s going to be packed solid.

I have to say that I wanted to show you the hair, and this Free Jewelry, au naturel but I can just see that flowers attached to the base of the bun or a tiara will look stunning with this hair.  As for the Jewels I quickly snagged them off the Lazuri Marketplace shop.  I do know that in her main shop she has 2 sets of Freebies out, 1 set is only for group members and this is 250Lds to join but for that you get a massive amount of full jewelry sets and each come with a comprehensive texture changing hud and the other sets are Free For All.  I’d also recommend that you pop upstairs for the Discount section.  I’m not into jewelry much and blinging it up isn’t my style but there is some stunning pieces up there and for decent prices.

Sorry if I’ve shown you this dress before but since I was over at GizzA Creations grabbing a new GG I thought I’d snag this one as well.  Simply gorgeous.

Now this I certainly don’t remember showing you.  From GizzA again.  The Free GG’s are actually outside the shop so if the LM doesn’t take you right to them once you’ve had a look around the shop walk outside and there is a whole load of Freebies for men and woman.  Not all of the items are mesh so for those who chose not to wear mesh for whatever reason there is plenty there for you and of course sometimes non mesh still has the same sort of quality when it comes from a shop willing to spend time and money on textures.

As for the sim I’m stood on STUNNING! I’m using the sim’s windlight settings only and I’ve just snapped off 2 quick pics to show you some more.

No editing and no camera tricks.  If you want to try your hand at taking pictures this is the perfect place to do it as not only is it lit to perfection but there are plenty of props set out for you to use.

Even if you don’t want to take pictures there is plenty of places for you to hang out as well, a little beached area and the lighthouse where you will see some brilliant dolphins.

Damn now I’ve had a wander around there are shops here.  Small little subtle shops but some well known names here and of course I’ve found what looks like a Gacha resale yard so I’ve quickly logged out to save my pennies.

Sa-Na-Rae (Stunning Sim)

Cheap Fun.

As I was following the links to track down the Washing Line from my previous post I came across a shopping sim which I haven’t visited for a while and so had a great time this morning just mooching around.  This is a sim of pure randomness packed with the good, the bad and the downright ugly and it’s fun to see what you can find……such as this lot.

dicion2

There is a couple of LB wins in there but you can also just buy them and since everything only costs 4Lds you can spend freely and you might be surprised at some of the items.

film rela

I bought this daft Dango hat just for fun as I adore Mochi and Dango is very similar.

diacon

These stringed Daikon Radish are keepers.  The hut I rezzed everything in is also one of the items I bought and it has a lit area which has bleached them out a bit but in SL they’re pretty darn realistic and again at 1 prim a lovely handy decor item.

coffeepot

A lovely linked tea set.  Not too sure what the gold bundles are but they’re separate from the tea set.

dicon

A close up of those twigs.  How pretty but on the Holly one I’m not sure what that funny thing is it looks a bit like a crumpled old moth.

dicion2

So basically everything you see from the hut to the streamer in the back cost 4Lds each.  Each are also so low primmed 1-2prims only.  Lots more to see or different choices.  It good place to while away the time and spend a few Lindens for fun.

Washer lady Low Primmed Low Priced!

I spotted this washing line outside someones home and a few clicks later I managed to hunt it down to the Marketplace.

wahing line

This is so good I’ve actually removed my washing line from a well-known shop and put this in its place instead.

washing

10Lds and just a single prim! I’ve also got loads of sheets I can hang off it if I wish.

Although this item was bought off the Marketplace there is an inworld shop which isn’t very big tbh neither is the Marketplace shop but it’s one of those little treasures.  “Monohoshi” isn’t the name of the shop but it’s in Japanese lettering which of course my keyboard doesn’t have so I think “Monohoshi” means clothes stand?

Check out my next post for what I found next door!

2 & More Kisses (freebies).

Sometimes when I grab freebies I don’t grab them all so what I show you may just be an example of what is on offer and in this case I’m just showing you 2 of the freebies but there is much more inc SLink Shoes.

cinnie1

Gorgeous colours and I’ll be double checking but I’m sure that I spotted the same design but with other textures at slashed down prices but this is gorgeous.

cinnie4

I know that this is a standard designed outfit but check out the texturing and quality!

Now I’m at Blackrose LM grabbing I can see that where you land the mens shop is right in front of you and the ladies to the right.  This isn’t a big shopping area so when you TP in you will see exactly what I mean.  Before you go to the ladies check out the big board behind you as there is a MM and I do believe I’ve actually been sent that this morning.  Now I’ve rechecked the Freebies I can assure you that even if you don’t like what I’m showing you there are some really good quality Freebies here and if it wasn’t for my heaving invent I’d snag the lot.

I have to also suggest that once you’ve grabbed the GG’s don’t rush off to try them on, Backrose is full of some really lovely stuff and some clothes are actually discounted.  Bold bright summer outfit and I even saw a more Autumnal one that I was tempted to buy but out of the whole shop this was the only one without a demo!

PS The mens dept has some good-looking Freebies as well so I have a feeling Baylen will be sent in to try them out so if they’re as good as the ladies you will see them in the next post.

PPS Weather update, it’s finally stopped raining!
