Chloe needs your help !

chloe

I received a notecard from one of my fav pose & props makers Rubystarlight Writer @ Exposeur. It was detailing a mahoosive sale at her store that’s taking place in aid of that sweet little furball Chloe above. Chloe is poorly and the vets bills are going to be huge, here’s some more info:

Today my poor sweet princess Chloe had a tooth bending completely forward, ready to fall out. Of course, I took her to the vet only to find out it’s not just one tooth. In addition to the one falling out, the vet feels that most (if not all) of her teeth are infected and putting her at risk of the infection spreading to her organs. Right now, I can’t even afford the x-rays so i don’t know exactly how bad it is. They gave her antibiotics to fight the infection and he said the broken tooth will fall out on it’s own in a day or two. But the gum disease and gingivitis in her poor little mouth can’t be cured by an antibiotic, so the infection will come back and make work of her already degenerating teeth.

The surgery required to remove the teeth that can’t be fixed along with cleaning out the infected teeth that have a chance requires a pretty major procedure. Until I have the x-rays done, I won’t know the cost for sure but the estimate is anywhere from $1000 – $5000. I wish I had this kind of money to get her the care she needs, but I don’t. I know a lot of people would just euthanize a pet who would cost this much, but I’ve had her for my entire adult life and I’m not ready to let her down like that. I’m not ready to give up and let her go over infected teeth. I hope there are enough people out there with pets who understand that and can help me.

I don’t know if I can raise enough money with a sale at my store… I’m not a huge major brand, but I have to try. So right now my whole store is on sale. Everything is L$50-L$100, including my large props. My gachas are marked down to L$15. If you have any use for poses, please consider shopping. The sale will go on for at least a week, but perhaps longer depending on how much I can raise.

If I do not raise enough money for Chloe and she’s unable to have the surgery now, I will save the money and save all I can in the coming weeks while working with the vet to keep her infection and pain managed. But I hope Second Lifers (along with RL family and friends) will come through for her… if not me.

I’m happy to share vet records with anyone who would like confirmation of the validity of her diagnosis.

Thank you for reading this and thank you for your help.

I think I own pretty much everrrrrything already in the store, but I did find a few more pose packs, had a few gacha machine tries & grabbed a coupla props  (which are really SO brilliant if you take photos in SL) Go take a peek , help Chloe and grab yourself some lovely gear! (To get to the props section, use the teleporter at the front desk.)

Loped over to the Hipster Fair this morning and snapped up this oh-so-sweet little outfit by EnvyMe. Whooooo can resist the Pug! Other animals available – but really – Pug! In the box there are various mesh body sizes, plus standard mesh sizes, princely sum of just $135L. My camera is by poppycock & halfdeer, currently out on sale at collabor88 in a pack with plenty of poses – you can even change the camera textures – love it ❤

Hipster Fair - Free dress with bolero - Free Dove Vavian FREE shoes

Look around at the Hipster Fair, most designers have gifts out for you ! I grabbed a few and decided to show you this sweet dress & bolero by Gypsy Chic. My shoes are also free, I found them at The Free Dove yesterday (I’m always rummaging around there!) these are by Vavian and very lovely they are too.

My Bad! (Super 10Ld Bargains)

Honestly even in my Nams setting SL lighting really didn’t want to play nice and all the lovely and well posed piccies I took of my goodies came out so dark I ended up just bining them.  So I quickly rezzed a back drop and 2 snaps later here they are looking a lot better than the previous piccies.

XXXlordesuse

You get all the mesh sizes in the pack and maybe I could have put the next size up, you can just see a tiny gap at the top, but plenty of size options for all shapes.

XXXlordesuse2

The back drop has certainly helped bringing the details out which is a relief because at any price great shoes but even greater at 10Lds but there is only a really small selection of bargains here BUT you really need to slap the Loordes of London subscription board, mainshop LM at the bottom,  because Coleen MaCarthur regularly sends out updates on all the special events she her clothes, shoes, jewelry are involved in such as “Steals and Deals” “My Secret Sales” etc each event offers items at discounted prices.

Clutter clutter everywhere!!! (Bargains ‘n’ Freebies)

I’ve spent the RL morning filling a charity bag sometimes I wonder where all these things come from and then I remember my charity shop addiction.  SL is a bit like that because even if you don’t need it when it’s such a bargain you simply have to have it and this is what I found when I went to the Frayed Knot shop.

I don’t like shops like this because there is very little in this shop but what there is pretty darned good and you only wish there was more to buy esp if he, Astoria (6astoria6),  keeps the prices as low as these are.

All I wanted was the multi striped rug which at 50Lds alone was a bargain but you actually get the 3 in the pack so I was very pleased with them all.

XXXCatsuse

OH Lord my SL bedroom is starting to look as cluttered as my RL one!

XXXCatsuse2

Taken in my Nams Optimum Skin n Prim setting to show you how I see these gorgeous colours.  There are 3 colour pack options and I do believe this was pack #2.

XXXCatsuse3

Now you’ve seen upstairs this is downstairs LOL.  Yes not only am a Charity shop addict I am a Mad Cat Woman! Although I’ve stuck to 2 of them but they do rule the household.  Have to say though in RL I wouldn’t put cat paintings up in my home but SL is the perfect place for madness.

XXXCatsuse4

They’re copyable which basically means you can spread your madness all over your walls.  They come rezzed in the layout you can see above which again I think looks great.  Single prim each so of course 6 in total if you rezz the lot and again only 50Lds.

Last but not least a lovely simple gift.

XXXCatsuse5

Coffee n doughnuts always WIN!  Touch the box and you get sent the doughnut you see but it’s a wearable, I just rezzed it onto the table for you to see.  Slight confession in that the cups come with a shadowed and non shadow version but the box is only a shadow version and can you see the shadow?  The answer is “nope” cos it looked just a little bit funny to me so I rezzed the box with the shadow just under the table.  Hardly an issue at all!!! I just like to be honest.

I’ll have to zoom around our sim just like my house and pick up my clutter but at least in SL you don’t have to dust.

The Girl Did Good, (A mix of Free ‘n’ Non Free)

I have NO idea of how Faith managed to squeeze even her extra skinny AV ass into the Shabby Chic event!  If like me you’ve tried, tried and tried again it’s time to give up and let it calm the Eff down! However when you do get in there check out the New Mina hair called Aimee.

XXXSuiturb2

You may have actually spotted that I wore this hair in my previous post as well.  I really should have put on one of the many other shade options you can choose from but I forgot which is a shame because although I have a tendency to stick to the browns, Mina hair comes in not just everything from blonde to dark brown but a lot of hairs come with amazing whites and blacks and the Ombres! and of course as I always say Mina does the best Gingers in SL LOL.

And YES Mina has a gift set out for us@Shiny Shabby, it is this hair but in a never to be repeated shade and I’ve seen it and I’m not going to show you it so you can have a surprise.  As always I’ve put the link to Mina’s mainshop because you can not only TP straight from there to the many events her hairs are at this moment but even better try the demo on at your ease and not in a crushed laggy sim.

XXXSuiturb4

A bit of the back of the hair so you can check out the scooped back top layer into a small pony tail.

If you read my last post I mention about the brill shoes which I thought for only 50Lds, SLink High Hooves needed, was not only a bargain but very unusual and stylish and here they are.

XXXSuiturb3

Folder over satin/leather? petals.  As soon as I spotted them I knew I needed them.  But remember these shoes are to be found in the market area just outside of PurpleMoon.  In my last post I showed you some of the exc Hunt items to be found at this little pretty hunt but sadly I’ve still not found the other hunt items and then of course as soon as I snagged these 50Lds off the PurpleMoon stall at this event I TPed home.

But again as I say save the “Lindens to spend the Lindens” and this is a repost about the suit I am wearing.

XXXSuiturb6

Loved this suit so much I actually paid the FULL price for it LOL.  This suit is why I was pleased the mini “Cherries on Top Hunt” wasn’t inside the main shop as PurpleMoon has some real quality clothing items to tempt even a meanie like me to part with their Lindens.  I bought this suit quite a while ago and I can’t remember the price but whatever it was it was worth it so once you’ve checked out the Hunt outside I DARE you to go inside and resist!

Last but not least a little Freebie for your home, I quickly scanned a note I received from La Galleria and then hauled ass.

XXXSuiturb5

Looks a bit like an oversized choccie to me but then again I am on a permanent diet and everything looks edible to me.  You have to hunt this freebie down in a way but the note I received made it quite clear where to find it.  Just walk into the Sedona House and check out the bathroom and I only noticed this when I went back to LM grab that if you check out the shelf above the bath there is an ornate egg on a stand as a gift for us.  Just click and pay 0Ld for each item.

I have to say that although these large almost brash houses aren’t to my taste I had to admire the quality and spaciousness of these homes.  Big homes for BIG personalities and I really enjoyed mooching around the many designs of homes on these sims, every time I walked out of a house thinking it’s time to get back to note clearing another home would tempt me and in the end sometimes it’s just nice to wander and yes even day dream a bit.

PS the LM for La Galleria will take you to the Sedona House.

Damn I’m useless! (Freebie Hunt).

I’m so glad this hunt isn’t in the PurpleMood Creations shop as I have quite a few outfits from here where I actually PAID money for them LOL and since I don’t want to be tempted into spending too much it was a relief that I wasn’t going to have to cam and scan around the shop for the hidden glasses of water with cherries on top which is why this little hunt is called “Cherries on Top Hunt”.

The 10 glasses are hidden in and around a very pretty and Valentines themed mini “yardsale” but when I say yardsale I don’t mean unwanted Arcade wins all new stuff from a variety of shops but new stuff from a variety of SL designers.

XXXpurpleuseI love any top that can show a bit of skin but in a tasteful way and this top does but for those who blush easily there is also a non sheer version or a rather handy system layer beige Bandeau top which is lovely and handy to have on its own.

XXXpurpleuse2

Again a simple and sweet mesh top.

XXXpurpleuse3

My last find was this stylised jacket.

When you go there you will spot that I used the large Ballroom as my backdrop because I really want to find the rest of the hunt prizes as I know that there are some skirts,  and like shoes you can never have enough skirts, and a few dresses so yet again when I get back inworld I’m starting off in my “last location”.  Plus I also have to confess that I spotted a pair of shoes from the PurpleMoon stall which are so unusual and at only 50Lds I can splash some cash on them and maybe my next post won’t be a freebie but I have NEW Mina hair and I’ll probably have those shoes which will be a nightmare because you all know I struggle to get everything into the same picture LOL.

OK will hopefully show you them later.

PS No hints give but check out just outside the back of the Ballroom cos you might just miss that one.
