Last Call.(Freebies).

The S@bbia shop never fails to delivery and this simple sweet 2 piece suits me fine.

You do get only the 1 size but I think you can see it’s an easy to fit one.  As it happens I also won a pair of flat/frilly shoes off the Lucky Board but I won’t show you them just say I was pleased with that win.

I don’t know how long this freebie has been out so go grab now.

Nighty Night everyone, it’s been a fun and lazy SL/RL day and I hope all of you have had a good day as well.

Flop!(Freebie(s)).

I blogged a rather good pair of shoes recently that I’d got off the MP and I finally managed to get to check out the inworld shop.

It’s called Kokoia and although the name is familiar I didn’t really recognise the shop or contents.  Anyhow naturally I first hunted down the Group Gifts which is free to join but you need a Linden to buy the gifts but it’s refunded straight away.

There is more than these flip flops, I think 4 other gifts, but I had changed into my flat feet and I could not be rat-arsed to change back to high feet again….just being honest.  I won’t tell you what the other GG’s are but they’re “interesting” heels and of course the pair I’d got off the MP shop.

What I will tell you about is the Cowboy boots, they’re most interesting as they come with tall thin heels and it’s not often you get these 2 styles combined into 1.  I’ve grabbed the demo, again you need to pay a Linden which is returned to you, and I’m looking forward to trying them on.

The other thing I want to tell you about is the small furniture shop down the stairs, Kokoia isn’t a big shop so you will not find it hard to find.  This shop or area is called “Atrezzo” and it’s the same owner/designer as Kokoia and down there you will find a small selection of very interesting furniture.  I didn’t buy anything this time but this is a shop to keep an eye on and hopefully the stock will grow as it’s so nice to see new and fresh designs even if they’re not for you.

I’m finished clicking. (Mention of sooooooo many freebies but not shown).

I’ve just turned a bit of the landscaping on our sim into Autumn colours but I’m going to stop as I want to ease into the new season and not go crashing in.  So once I’d finished doing that I popped over to the Redeux event and we all know this event so well because of the MASSIVE amount of gifts which are set out for us.  I’ve not started to unpack yet but when I log back in I’m going to spend a pleasant afternoon unpacking, sorting and yes, of course, binning my way through the lot and I will LOVE every minute of it.

But of course the gifts are set out to tempt us in but they’d like us to buy and buy I did! In the end I spent over 500Lds on things that tempted me inc these shoes.

“Dorothy” is on the NOIR stand and didn’t cost me 500Ld only 35Lds add to that a lovely colour hud which allows you to change the shoe and bow but not the off-white part on your toes.  You get fits for all main mesh feet plus a “material” and “non-material” version which is not a common feature, although I do have to say that all Mina’s hair comes with this option.  The “non-material” version is kinder on people who have slow running computers but I have to say it took me a long time to work that out as sometimes it’s hard to even notice a difference.

Then I picked this up from the Simply Shelby shop.  I’ve seen this umbrella plant a few times as of course Simply Shelby is one of those shops that has an awful lot of excellent discounted item out on a regular basis.  Taken in my sim setting and it’s 8 prims.  I’m pretty sure this cost either 25, 30 or 35Lds because I bought so many things I forgot the exact price tag.

I know for sure this cost me 50Lds.

Just the cooker and not the drying rack.  I rezzed it quickly to check it out and love it and because it’s only 3 prims I will leave it there for the moment.  Sad to say I have a whole folder of cookers but when I spot something different I just can’t help myself.  Velvet Whip is the stand/shop for this item.

So LOTS of really good gifts at this event but make sure to check out the other items for sale because a lot of them have very discounted items on them and there is an excellent mix of clothes, decor, landscaping, fantasy, realistic goodies for everyone.

UPDATE.  I forgot to click “Publish” and so now I’ve had time to unpack all of the gifts I can only say, make sure you go!  So many “ooo’s” and “aaah’s” to be found, a BIG Thanks needs to be said to the shops/designers who have been so generous.

From this to this.(5Ld Group Gift(s))

Stand back, AV in action.

Yup, this pose means I’m getting click happy and changing our sim into a more Autumnal colouring.

OK, I won’t be using this OTT windlight setting but when I log in I will be going back to trawling through the list of preset ones to pick one that shows both AV’s and Landscaping off to their best.

This dress is a Group Gift from Santino Design which is a shop I’ve blogged before.  The group only costs 5Lds to join and this is one of the new GGs, from memory there are 3 new ones and 3 old ones, but I could be wrong.  Of course, I grabbed the 3 new ones but so far this is the only one I’ve tried on and even if the other 2 items are stinkers this alone is so worth the joining fee and much more.

When I TPed back to LM grab I decided to have a walk around as I’ve found some real bargains in this shop previously and I spotted that this dress and probably the other GG’s are also available in the shop but fully priced in different colours.  This means that if you want to try a demo before you join the group then you can but again at 5Ld and 6 really good gifts you don’t need to bother trying as they are shop quality.

Also make sure to check upstairs as well because although there is a lot of bargains to be found downstairs there are more upstairs inc Gacha’s and Lucky Chairs.

PS.  The picture of this dress in the shop looks pink but it’s definitely a yellowy gold colour, which I think is even nicer.

I “Love” this.(Hunt Freebie).

Woo, it’s been a busy RL day so much so I’ve only just had a chance to check out the FLF offers…checked now lol.

I’m still doing the “The Frog Prince” hunt and this is the prize from the “LOVE” shop.

Go on guess what I’m going to say next?

I bet you guessed right, not my fit.  The panties are mine because although in this prize there is a selection of items inc panties/shorts? again…not my fit so I popped a pair of my own on.  So, in this case, all I’m showing you is this really pretty fringed top which comes in a selection of colours.

What I’m also not showing you is the rather good hair as it’s rather draped down the front and covered the top up too much so I decided to leave it off.  You get a full complement of colour huds and I tried out the “Ginger” shades and oooo niceee!

Wrong Hunt.(Freebie).

Still hunting and still useless but although I didn’t find the Frog Prince hunt prize I did find the WOH5 prize.

I’d already seen this prize either in posts or notes etc and discounted it because it’s a Maitreya fit only but I was refusing to walk away empty handed and I’m glad I grabbed it.

There is some breakthrough, not the shoulder strap as that’s designed to be slipping down, but just in the back and if I wasn’t rushing around trying to find goodies I’m pretty sure my Alpha would cover up the breakthroughs on the back.  Although you only get 1 fit you get I think it’s 5 different textures and if I turned around you also get an eyeful of my bum, cute and cheeky at the same time.

PS.  The ERSCH group isn’t free but it’s 75Ld and some nice gifts BUT check out upstairs, there is a TP on the wall, as for a not unreasonable amount of Lindens there are some excellent aprons.  I grabbed the demo as all of the clothes in this shop seem to be just for Maitreya.  You get 2 versions one to be worn on its own and the other to be worn over clothing and although that one did fit me I decided not to buy it as I would prefer to be able to have both fits esp if I’m paying full price but if you love aprons then you must check them out.

A personal plea.(Freebies).

This adorable teacup and egg set are group gifts from a shop called Dahlia.

I’ve zoomed out to show you the other colours you get, plus a better perspective on the size.

Adorable so blinking adorable, believe it or not, I went into my own RL kitchen and dug out one of my oversized teacups and copied this.  Only 1 prim each as well and I do believe copy.

I already own a couple of decor items from this shop but damn it I’ve earmarked a few items for me to return to and purchase at a later date, so free is going to cost me but of course that’s what happens, the freebies/hunts bring people in in the hopes they splash some cash and in this case it has worked…when I treat myself to some more Lindens that is.

Anyhow, this is only one of the group gifts.  I picked this up and the mug of hot chocolate and apart from a couple of rather really good items of jewellery I can’t actually remember what else there was so go check them out for yourself.

While you’re there can you find the hunt prize for me?  I’ve been waiting for a hunt to come along and finally here is one called “The Frog Prince Hunt” and it looks like it’s going to be a good un.  The only thing is that even though hints are given I’ve failed at the first hurdle and couldn’t find the one in the Dahlia shop soooo be a sweetie and if you find it can you drop me a note cos if it’s as good a quality as the GG’s it’s worth hunting down.
