Better than expected. (5Ld giftie).

I actually found this outfit on the Marketplace and popped them into my cart but when I spotted there was an inworld shop I decided to check that out before I check out my cart and so doing I saved myself 10Lds as this is priced at 15Lds on the Marketplace and only 5Lds in the shop.

It’s actually better than expected, and I don’t mean any disrespect by saying that but we all know that sometimes cheap is really cheap, goodness knows how many bargain-priced things I’ve bought and binned but I don’t mind as you “pays your money and takes your chances lol. These do have the “wrinkled mesh” as well as painted on shading.  It’s the same for the other cheapies which were ok but these were the best.

They can be worn as separates, so you know if I was keeping this outfit the top would deffo be binned as I don’t care for slogans, the hud that comes for the pants has 5 colours.

There are other “gifts” which are everything from 1Ld to 5Ld and some do look really good, I should have picked up the puffer jacker as that may have gone with this look perfectly.  Anyhow check them out as there is more to see.

Welcome to Yorkshire.(!g0 Group Gift & Freebie).

This dress is the new !g0 group gift, only 50Lds to join the group and I think in all of the years I’ve been in the !g0 group there has only been one group gift I didn’t like the rest of them were keepers and don’t even start me on the Gacha’s!

I have an !g0 addiction. It’s one shop I’d love to blog for but you know me, apart from my lovely Mina’s, I like to be free to hunt out the free n cheap.

I logged out before I checked it but as well as the Group Gift one of the new outfits is also set at a discounted price, thats usually on the wall at the back of the shop in the main entrance.

The Freebie is the Pumpkin glasses, it’s a subscribers gift from Hopscotch and they’re CUTE AS F*CK! Totally ignore the fact my eyes look weird that’s because I caught myself in mid-blink and not the glasses fault but since the real me is totally knackered I have no energy to log back in and retake it.

PS.  The photo was taken on one of my fav places and it’s called “Yorkshire”.  I forgot to take note of the shops who have donated/landscaped this piece of England for us to use as a backdrop but I’ve shown it to you before and as you can see from the sim setting alone this is just a lovely place for us to take some pretty pictures.

A TPHG Gift.(10Ld Gift).

The “TPH” stands for TeleportHub Group, just as I was checking my groups to see if there was anything I was missing this notice came out from one of my fav groups for this gift.

You get this from the Pearl Fashion shop, I didn’t linger long to see if there was anything else in the shop because the notice had just gone out and people were standing on top of each other as they TPed in lol.

The TeleportHub group does cost 10Lds to join and I’ve always said it’s worth it.  I think you get 4 patterns and I know one of them was a more evening beach pattern of pastel stripes.  Those “patches” you see are actually part of the pattern and I think it gives it that little bit extra!

You can’t see it but I’m feeling it.(Freebie).

The freebie first, it’s this little jumpsuit(?) from Ishara.

I wasted so much time trying to choose which texture out of the hud I liked best and I just went for this one but they’re all in this retro style which I really like.  The Ishara shop has had a revamp which makes the shop much easier to navigate. You will find this freebie on the wall inside the entrance.

Walk around the shop as there are other Freebies here and there.

OK, what you can’t see is my new AO!  My poor old one has finally died!  I’m pretty sure I couldn’t even get it redelivered to me as I have to be honest and admit my AO was NINE YEARS OLD! Yes probably older than a lot of people reading this post but it worked for me.  It was subtle, understated and pretty natural in its movement so in other words, it didn’t annoy the F**K out of me.  I have over the years hopped on and off various AO demos but and although some were tempting when I spotted the price tag the Cheap B* in me did a silent scream and I happily stuck to what I had.

With the death of my AO, I decided it was time to not only update but to update to a Bento one!  I’m not a fan of Bento poses as most of them are just a bit OTT for me, like my AO I would prefer them to be a bit more subtle.  Anyhow, I knew from a past visit that the Kuso shop, where my original AO came from, has also updated to some Bento AOs and I chose the “Super Sweet” one as being just about to my taste.  So for not an unreasonable sum of 600Lds I now strut and pose like a pro.

Most of the AO’s in the Kuso shop are still around the 200-300Ld mark and they, at least to me, are really good so if you want to try something new then check it out.

Minimal cost – Group gifts

I buy SO many backdrops, seriously – I think its the new “gacha” for me – I just cant stop. Minimal are my absolute favourites though – well made, in proportion and really on trend. So I headed over there today to check out if anything caught my eye – and it did ! The two backdrops on the lower part of the photo above are group gifts – plenty other gifts to grab also and all the store quality that Minimal sell. There is a small join fee of $50L which is tiny in comparison to the fact you can fill your boots with stuff as group gifts PLUS you get 10% discount when  buying and wearing your group tag – nice! I bought the two backdrops on the upper part of the photo and ohmydays – they are lush! I know I’m actually going to be using these for the winter ❤

Thank you nameless person.(Freebie).

A quick THANKS to the person who sent me the “heads up” about Yasum, sorry I logged in clicked on my notes/notices so quicky and then logged out I don’t know exactly who sent me the info BUT I do know who does this sort of thing and I’m grateful for it.

I struggled a bit to take a picture of this rather interesting outfit but I rather like picture as for once you can see all of the outfit inc those exaggerated flares.  This comes in just 1 fit and so I will assume it’s a Maitreya only, try a demo for one of the full-price ones to check.  This wasn’t actually a bad fit even for my SLink bod.

In the men’s dept as well as the women’s and hunt down the 2 items in each dept which has a smiley face on it and that particular colour has been reduced to 1Ld and once you’ve joined the free Yasum Design group you pay your 1Ld and get your 1Ld returned

PS. Near the LM is a TP system, hop on to it and head to the “Outlet” department.  There the men will find 2 fab Dollarbies and for us ladies is a pair of brown jeans which if I remember correctly are damned good gifts.

250Lds for 20Lds (Info ONLY).

This picture has absolutely nothing to do with the “info” I’m just about to tell you but I’m looking simply lovely and so you can gaze upon my loveliness for a few seconds before scrolling past it and to the more exciting bit.

I won’t lie but most Huds that get sent to me I almost automatically delete because they’re usually just a catalogue containing pictures of a shops new range of clothing etc but this one from Blueberry caught my eye because it mentioned my 2 fav words, chocolate and kittens.  OK, I’m kidding it’s the next best thing Birthday Gift!

I don’t know how old Blueberry is but some stores in SL both clothing, decor, home design and landscaping have forged ahead in the quality of their meshing.  They have ensured that not only is Second Life still a vibrant place people want to be but they allow us to create our dreams.

OK enough with the waxing lyrical here is the best bit, the Blueberry Group, which you do have to be a member of, costs only 20Lds and yes there are Group Gifts in the shop but check out the notices and there you will find the gift hud and you simply wear it and now you have 250Lds worth of credit!

PS.  If you’re wondering the dress is from S@bbia and it’s still out as a freebie but I’d hurry as the group gifts do change pretty regularly.  As for that adorable wearable basket, I think I paid XXX for it and I will tack the LM on to the end of this post if it’s still out.  The reason I’ve put the XXX instead of the price of the basket is that it’s now gone back to full price but it’s still only 75Lds if you like it.  I can’t find it in the shop but check it out for yourself and if you can’t find it then it’s on the Lorien Marketplace shop.
