I have cake & a super sim decor bargain

I got a New RL bread maker last night so today I have made 2 loaves, 1 cake and a pan of Jam, or as you Yanks say “jelly”, and since the sun has struggled out from behind the clouds I’ve been lazing like a Lady of Leisure in my garden feeding my fat face.  It goes without saying I’ve eaten too much bread and cake and now I feel bloated and sad!

I’ve mentioned the 25Ld Tues offers before, just sub to one of the shops involved in it and you should get sent out a note with the LM’s and shops involved in that weeks 25Ld Tue offer.  Most of the shops involved are more towards the RP/Rustic/Gor/Medieval SLers BUT do NOT let that put you off if this isn’t your thing.  I’ve found some excellent decor items for my sim and home and occasionally an outfit which I couldn’t resist.

I have to admit that once I get my hands on the list I quickly scan it to see if my Fav shops are in the list and this week DD (Dysfuntionality Design) were on the list so that was my first place to TP over to and check out these low primed pretty floating Chinese lanterns.

You get the 5 colours shown, copyable and only 1 prim each so you can rezz as many of these as you wish.

Super simple menu with them just rezz  on the ground click on it and you get 2 tabs the first is to choose how wide or how close you want the lantern to float to where you rezz it and the other to activate it and once you click that it just floats away.  Being able to choose to keep it in a restrictive area means you can rezz these even on a small plot and of course again you can rezz just the single lantern or as many as you wish.

If you’ve never been to DD (Dysfunctionality Designs) then you must go, I’m pretty sure there is some decor freebies there but it’s been a long time since I’ve checked, but go for the fruit n veg because you will find some of the best, realistic and low primed fruit n veg planting you will find in SL.  Very reasonably priced as well esp for such exc quality.

How good is this! I know that there is a quick redelivery system here at DD but as I was LM grabbing, it doesn’t take you direct to the 25Ld offer but look on the ground and there are signs that lead you right to it, but I also decided to splash out and I’ve bought some grasses, bunnie rabbits and other items for our sim inc a stunning rose-bush which comes with a colour hud etc but I’d forgotten I’d already bought it so I paid my 125Lds which is shockingly cheap for such quality and I got it returned to me!  Took me a second to realise, and check my invent, that I already own these roses and so it wouldn’t let me buy something I already own! How good is that!

Once upon a time…

 

culprit unicorn

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I shall begin…In a far far land where most everything was made of cherry blossoms and sugar…and on and on…anywayyy you know I am really not one for waxing lyrical, or wearing fairy outfits…but those naughty little elves at Culprit MADE me do it ! Culprit has released quite possibly the best rideable UniQrn (no, that’s not a typo) in the univerrrrse. It is just beautifully amazing, so striking and bold, yet gentle and mystical all at once. This UniQrn is a wearable – so you wont take up any prims whilst using it – which frankly is like the best ever thing I could hear. Turn your AO off, and “ADD” the UniQrn, it’s also resizeable so you can get the perfect fit and will work with petites. This is their gacha item at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival which opens its doors on the 12th of this month.

And off you go, on great adventures, or if you’re deadly dull like me shopping trips. The UniQrn is animated at a standstill, and when moving. In fact the movement is stunning, truly. I’ve owned so many horses and rideable pets in the past, but this surpasses all of them. The body looks fluid, nothing jerky, no ballooning legs, everything about it is natural and smooth. If you set your movement to run, a new animation takes over and you canter along at speed. Your body crouches lower and your arms move as if to spur the little beast onwards.

Here’s the key for all the beauties you could win. I’m showing the Palemist UniQrn, which as you can see is a rare. There are four rare rideable UniQrn’s, and twelve common BabyQrn pets that when added trot so prettily along beside you. There is also a mystery BabyQrn o.O ! Thanks Eku ❤

It ain’t happening! (Freebies).

Sigh! after all of that I turn up and I’m sat there in the dentist office trying, and failing, to be brave only for them to come out and apologise because one of the pieces of equipments, I can only assume resembles the face clamp out of the Saw movie, was broken.  So I happily ran out with a big grin on my face until I realised that I now have to go through all of that again at a later date.

I’m revamping our sim which means updating the plants and trees so I popped over to one of my fav SL shops and Woo Hoo I found Freebies.  A charming old rickety mail box, some lovely details to it ie the key on the side, paintbrush etc but not only is this only 3 prims you get an even lesser prim version which is minus the key, brush, letters but still has all the charms but only 1 prim!

Right next to this Group Gift is a couple of tops.

crossgreenurbtop

Now it’s obvious that I have edited the picture.  When I’m showing paid for items I like to show them as true to colour as poss but when it’s a freebie I allow myself some artistic leeway but I will also give you an honest description.  The main body of this top is more a creamy white with the pastel almost childish flowers on it, the back panel of this top is a plain almost hessian texturing look to it.  It actually has a home-made look to it something a crafter or recycler would make.  You do get another colour, blue I think, but I ran out of time to try it on.

I’ll only give a quick mention of the hair as it’s a paid for item and there for I want to show you it’s true colours but of course since this is a Mina hair then you will be able to see from my many posts just like I’m a PumeC nut I’m a Mina nut and so you can see the sorts of colours that come as standard with Mina hair.  It’s only available at the Shiny Shabby event at the moment and since I literally only managed to squeeze my AV in there for a few minutes I want to do a better post about this hair and hopefully any new Freebies that maybe at this event.

If the first LM doesn’t take you right to the Group Gifts, and it probably won’t, simply follow the sign to the Mainshop but don’t walk straight ahead into the tree’s turn right and the main shop is there.

PS Smack the LM board for HPMD’s Christmas room.  Nothing is for sale but this “room” is a fantasy of swirling festive items a delight to the eye.

My new friends

Free Bird Budgies NEW!

I was sooo excited when I saw the new Budgie pets from Free bird that I zoomed over straight away to snap one up. I ended up getting two birdies ! Then I bought some for Zan ! I adore budgies and have nearly always had one or two as pets in real life. My last two died a while back, so in their memory I named my SL budgies after them (peep & chirp) I was dead lucky and snagged a rare pink cage first try *squeee*. Anyyyyway a little about how they work. The cage and birds are in gacha machines, I can’t imagine you’d be unhappy about any of the wins, they are all so lovely.

Important note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR FOOD FOR THESE BIRDS.

Fabulous, I’m a bit jaded of buying food for pets in SL, all you have to do with these little lovelies is click on the cage at least once a week and choose “tend”, voilà, all good to go. You can also take them into your inventory and they wont die or get sick – hurrah! If you join the free bird group (its free) you can also claim your gift of the snazzy beaded swing you see in my cage. There are other accessories too – I bought a cuttlefish for mine. If you do forget to tend to your new babies – there is a bottle of vitamins that will treat the whole cage (99L) , you can have up too four birds in one cage – brilliant! They sing and hop about, play on the swing, eat, drink and generally behave like budgies do. If you go to the store there is a very good board that explains how it all works – its dead simple to be honest but READ it anyway. Ohhhhh don’t be afraid about prims – it’s really really low !

Plushy Heaven

Dlab

This is D-lab. You may never have been there but you will know it’s creations very well because they’re all over SL.  Shops and home are packed with the cutest, smoochiest little critters.  If you love Plushies then this is the place for you.  But it’s more than just cute animals because if you take a good wander around then you will find it has everything from furniture to space crafts and everything in between all in their same inimitable style.  This is the whole shop in the sky and I decided to post this picture because if you walk up out of the shop to the upper levels what you find are the most adorable streets packed with shops of all sorts a baker, book shop, cafe, hotel and on and on such an adorable place to wander and admire the best SL has to offer.

Dlab1 I had so much time walking around all the upper levels I almost forgot what I went to D-lab for.

poolI went to get this.  A D-lab Group Gift and as it happens they have another one out at the entrance but if you want the pool it is still there.  Just walk inside and “ooo” and “ahhh”  over the cute turtles and ducks other creatures and you will notice that one of the pools has a GG sign on it.  Very handy I have to say. Generous in proportions and has some really good poses I am for a change actually using one of the poses that come with it.  There are some cuddle poses but I had no one to cuddle but if they’re of the same standard as the single poses then they will not disappoint.
