Welcome back old friend.

The monthly “The Dressing Room” event was the first discounted event I ever started to go to and I have to confess that this is the place which started off my Essence skin addiction because it was the only place you could pick up an Essence skin at a very CHEAP price.  I’m over that addiction, still love the skins though, and PumeC has been my skin of choice for a couple of years now.  OK so basically everything at this event is priced between 40-100Lds and not only is this bargain priced items all of it comes from well-known shops and a lot if not all of it is fresh new designs.

A good mix of skins, hair’s, shoes, and usually there is a good mix of clothes, jewels, make up, shoes, skin and hair etc and at the prices they’re not only quality stuff but so tempting, I think I’m wearing one of the eyes shadows I picked up from there but I can’t be a 100% sure…but I am pretty sure LOL.

As soon as I spotted this delicate pretty romper on the Fishy Strawberry stand I didn’t even bother to grab the demo I threw my 60Lds at it grabbed the pink one and TPed straight home to put it on.  So delicate so pretty so feminine it’s making the RL me want to put on a face mask, crank up the central heating  and go lounge like a lady of leasure…unlike the hard working woman I really am.

You get 2 items in this pack, as well as all the sizes, you get this full romper and a wear on its own top which will look so pretty teamed with basically anything ie shorts, jeans or as is shown in the Fishy Strawberry picture a cute pair of panties. As it happens I was in such a rush I forgot to put the Alpha layer on! and didn’t even notice, although it’s hardly a hardship popping an Alpha layer on but I’m wondering if I could wear my mesh body without having to bother using the alpha hud.  Thats just a meandering thought because you of course will be able to grab the demo and try before you buy.

It’s nice to see it’s back and with a new small pretty shopping area set out it’s easy to just have a saunter around and at the prices treat yourself….and NO GACHAS! Woo Hoo LOL.

Go for the freebie buy the cheapie’s. Edited!

Firstly non Freebie but still a cheapie.

Mina untouched

Non touched piccie to show off the Mina hair. This is a “lazy hair” because “Carlijn” is a knitted hat/hair combo so no need for hair editing.  A chunky knitted cap but thankfully without that helmet head look that sometimes knitted hats in SL can have.  The hat/cap comes with a choice of 5 textures and the same amount for the hair colour options.  The ones which are discounted are the Pastel and Pastel/Ombre colours.  Slashed down to just 70Lds a colour pack!  If you’re not a pastel person there is the option of the “essential” colour pack but this is not only full priced but a little bit more as it contains 7 of the most popular and basic hair colours so you have from blonde dark black and the shades inbetween and again if you don’t think you would use many of these colour options you can always call into Mina’s mainshop and check out the colour option packs she has there for only the standard 250Lds.

Mina does have a VIP Group for you to join but instantly you get one of her great hairs and although it does cost you get that all back with the first GG.

The Freebie n cheapie are the 2 builds I went to grab. If I remember correctly the Freebie is a rustic cabin but since I have an invent heaving with different builds I simple rezzed it and then derezzed it without much thought.  Don’t let that put you off grabbing it esp since the one thing I did notice was that it was editable and most people start out building in SL by reconstructing others builds as the best way to learn how to edit.  When I saw this derelict build and I thought esp for only 55Lds I might get some use out of it for a back drop etc.

Personally I think it makes for a pretty alternative home for those of you who like to be just that bit different.  The platform is my working one which I’ve blogged previously and it comes with a colour changing option for both the land and sky and is only 4 prims (ish) and the build itself inc the derelict car is only 29, the fire is my prop.  So yet again for those of you with a low prim allowance and wanting a different look I think this rocks.  This build is only 55Ld and there are more at that cheapo price from this shack to sleek modern homes.  If I remember correctly the Group is Free to join and there ia a tableful of GG’s and Dollarbies.

I’m doing a lot of “remembering” because I’m having a PJ day in RL which means I’m sat here in my PJs with the fire on, my kindle next to me, Judge Judy on TV and some ribbon because I want to try my hand at Ribbon Embroidery.  Hope everyone is having a good day even if you’re not having a “PJ” day.

I was in such a rush to return to my PJ day I forgot to post more pictures of the interior texture of this build! Doh!

Same old same old…

Yup packing my bags and heading off to the cabin in the woods (which happens to come with maid service and a spa bath, I don’t rough it).  Sadly though the deep thick crisp snow we had dreamed of hasn’t turned up but still nothing beats snuggling up for a few days of……….dirty minded people!

urbdarkedgeBut I’m desperately trying to squeeze in a couple of last minute items because I just love them.  I’ve got to stop getting Mina hair because I’m now being tempted to try the Ombre look  on my RL hair but unlike Mina’s Noor Ombre styled hair which is a perfect blend of light brown and shocking pink I’ve seen too many screw ups to try to do it myself.  I have blogged this hair before but now it’s at the special offer of price (70Lds) at the latest TDRF event I thought it’s time for a reblog.  Not too keen in Ombre? then she has a dark blond pack on offer.  Each comes with a colour changing hud.

Shoes

Another “as soon as I saw the picture I had to go get these” situation.  You would think even in SL you can have too many shoes but we say “HELL NO” and esp when I spot a pair which is wearable with jeans, shorts and skirts I had to grab them.  Limited in stock at the special price of (Oops I think it was 110Lds but I’ve forgotten).  Come with a colour changing sock layer.

Shoes2Now just for a fun freebie.

Tea

Always on the hunt for new poses when I came across this fun freebie from FructOse.  Not sure if you have to join the group but it’s free to join as well.  Can’t stand tea love the pose though and yes I did cave in and bought too many new poses but I feel no shame at that.

Beautiful Sim Beautiful Skin.

You wait forever for one of your favourite skin designers to set out a bargain and then 2 come along at the same time what is a girl to do..buy them both of course.

skin2The skin I wear 90% of the time is called Wednesday and it comes from Essences.  Full priced in the shop they cost a pretty penny but if you’re a “canny” shopper like me (canny means good) then you wait for a hunt, LB. or one of the discounted sales which pop up and one of the biggest ones is Fusion where everything is priced from 40-70Lds so you can imagine as soon as I spotted an Essence skin my little AV heart fluttered.  This is Wednesday ll which to me looks almost identical to my skin but with an amazingly bronzed tone.  You get 4 layers but the only difference is the eyebrows so you have Blonde, brown, brunette and ginger eyebrow colours but same skin/eye make up.  Comes with make up a smudgy red/black/brown eye make up look which is so sexy. A large choice of 6 blush layers as well.

Skin 1Just to make this a double whammy I then spotted a YS & YS skin which is another high-end shop so for 70Lds another brilliant find.  This one is called Willow.  2 skins with willow same texturing but one comes with a closed mouthed and if you look closely you can see in the photo the second skin comes with a slightly parted mouth.  Very subtle make up.  Comes with a LOT of tattoo layers for eyebrows, cleavage etc.  You really have to try the demo’s and see which skin  fits your shape and your personality but at 70Lds each you really can’t afford not to pick both up.

Check out YS & YS shop if you want the Lolas to go with your skin (I know I do) and I’m trying to resist a cute pair of Polka Dot shoes she has.

Sim1Stumbled on this gorgeous shopping/visiting sim.  Lots of small shops with quite a few LBs, Group Gifts and just plain interesting items in the same theme as the sim.  Just plain lovely with sitting areas and beautiful views.

Sime2It was the fan which brought me to in the first place. A 60Lds weekend offer from kisetsu so sadly it will have gone back upto full price by the time this is posted (but maybe the owners will be kind/lazy and keep it up there for longer).  A shop packed with gorgeous colourful kimonos and accessories. Once you’ve checked out her shop then step outside and have a wander around a beautiful sim and maybe you too will be lucky enough to pick up some freebies or cheapies if your not tempted by one of her gorgeous kimonos.
