Free or Cheap.

It’s not often I get to use this pose so it was fun to dust it off as it’s pretty suitable for these free flower patches from CJ Creations.

You get two patches, one of the yellow flowers and the other one is Daisys.  Pretty standard in size and prims (1prim) but as you can see a nice dense texturing so a fine Free For All gift from CJ Creations.

To find this you need to go into the large greenhouse and it’s on your right but there is much more outside.

Although there is a lot of varied things one of the big things about the CJ shop is the small scene-setting little plots.  Faith and I love nothing better than faffin on our sim but for most renters, you have a small plot to work with and of course, not everyone wants to faff so these premade scenes are perfect. Just a quick rezz and you can change the look of your garden to suit your mood.

Last night before I logged off I popped into the “TWE12VE” event (it starts on the 12th of each month) which is celebrating a Birthday and on each stall is an item set out for, go on have a guess?  Nope, not free but only 12Ld.  All of the gifts have a little picture so you can see what is in the gift bag so you can make your mind up before you buy.  It wasn’t until I zoomed in closely that I realised this was patterned in a sea theme when I’d put it on it’s colours have a more muted Autumn feel to me.

You get lots of fits and a nice hud of textures and because the body of this top has a puffed out fit it means that I found more things like the blue skirt I’m wearing fitted nicely under it.

BUT this will shock you because I’m sorely tempted to buy the cropped hoodie even though they have slogans on the front.  Not only are they just 99Ld but the designs/slogans are pretty fun.

Deceptively Simple. (Dollarbie)

This is a deceptively simple summer dress and out of the “good, bad and ugly” I picked up off the Marketplace this is definitely, better than, good.

The texturing is as good as it looks, some nice subtle wrinkles and if you look closely a sexy little bit of side boob.  Nothing SCREAMS sexy as a subtle flash of side boob lol.

Damn, I’ve not even managed to log out of the Marketplace without adding something more to my invent….next post line up.

BTW Believe it or not the Sunflowers I’m holding have nothing to do with the ones I’m using as a backdrop it’s just spooky how they’re almost identical.

Harmonia.

Totally random.(Upgrade & Mention of 10Ld Shoes).

I would love to spend more time learning more about SL and stuff but like most of us my time to SL is limited so when it comes to “Baked on mesh” I know F*ck All.

But I do know that if you have SLink Mesh bods then the free upgrade is now out.

This is me wearing it as it comes and I’ve not “skinned” it yet and maybe I won’t as it’s a new hud which looks a little bit complicated to a simpleton like me.  So I’ve popped my old bod back on and will spend some time studying this new one as there is no rush to change.

To get this update just head to the SLink shop, slap the redelivery kiosk and it redirects you to a page where you simply click to have your SLink body delivered to you.  It is slightly confusing in that you get both the old and the new version.  The one labelled “Redeux” is the new one.

PS.  The shoes I’m wearing is the 10Ld item.  I picked them up from the Enchante shop. I rejoined the group, only 10Lds, and then grabbed them and then realised I’m 90%  sure I have blogged these before but since I’m 10% not sure and since I’d already grabbed them here is the details.  These come with a colour hud, you get plenty of fits and they’re strappy.  There are other gifts in the Enchante shop and the other pair of shoes have been blogged and they’re super handy because of the hud.

PPS. Yes, that IS a Mina hair.  I don’t get a chance to wear this wild and wacky hair called Roosje that often so it made me smile to be able to wear it. Since this is one of her older hairs I think it will be upstairs….just saying.

Nothing better than repeats.(10Ld Group Gift).

I think I have shown you these boots before but since I know I would have kept them and I can’t find them in my invent I’m going to assume I haven’t.

Not that I really mind blogging things I’ve blogged before as it maybe old to some and new to others and when the gift is this good quality who cares.

So to get these you do have to join the TeleportHub Group which costs 10Lds and for that you not only get these boots, with a great colour hud, but of course, you can find TeleportHub gifts in many other shops.

PS.  In the back of this shop is where you will find these and some Freebies.

My last treat.(25Ld Tue & Mention of Freebie).

I think this dress has “Ballet” in its description so it’s my excuse to pop on my ballet shoes and pull a few Plie’s.

I picked this gold one but there is an equally as nice blue one.
That white overskirt is like rough scrunched up netting.  I couldn’t see a demo but esp for this super bargain price of 25Lds it’s a snip.  BTW The funny way it’s hanging is simply because of my pose.

I’m not sure if this 25Ld Tue offer is out for just 24hours but I suspect that it will be out all week.

If you’re wondering about the shoes, sorry deffo not free but worth every Linden.  These come from Mosquito’s Way and although with the Pointe shoes you do have to have the SLink Pointe feet, and yes I have those as well.  All of that adds up but SL is for our dreams and if you want to dream that you look like you could float like a butterfly and not stumble like a Hippo then the cost of the feet and shoes is a small price. BUT This particular pair of shoes comes with this flat version and that can be worn with ALL mesh flat feet.  All 3 of her ballet designs shoes are available as demos in her shop so have a try and be that Ballerina.

As for the Freeness, we also all know that Mosquito’s Way is pretty generous with her Group Gifts and if you’ve not picked that pair up then you’re in for a treat, I was doubly lucky as I’ve not only picked it up but my initial was on one of the Lucky Chairs and so I’ve scored another great pair of shoes.

PS. The dress is a Maitreya fit only but a really good fit even for my SLink bod.

Oops I said “No”! (50Ld Group Gifts).

Sorry,I’m tarnishing my Cheap B* status by doing another post where it’s going to cost you a few Lindens but since I was already in the Fetch group it’s not cost me anything. Because I thought I already owned these glasses when the notice was sent out I ignored the notice but it turns out that they are a new Group Gift and I LOVE them.  You get a hud of colours to change both the lens and the metal.  Cute or smart depends on which options you chose.

The outfit is something you may recognise as it is one of the old Group Gifts.  As you can see on my hips there is a bit of breakthrough and I also had to edit my lady parts out and that’s because this is a Maitreya fit only. You get a hud for this PJ set, 3 for the top and I think it was 3 for the bottoms.  You can’t see it but the top is raised a bit so you get a flash of underboob.

It’s been a while since I’ve checked Fetch out and there are 4 other pairs of excellent glasses for it’s VIPS and a couple of items of jewellery etc so check em out because for the initial 50Ld joining fee just in the glasses you get your money’s worth and much more.  Fetch isn’t a big shop but it seems to have something of everything and there are some plain t-shirts with “six-letter slogans” which I would seriously be tempted to buy and wear lol.

Juicy. (15Ld Hunt Prizes, Group Gifts).

La Perla has a mini hunt going on, fortunately, someones posted the “Key” on Flickr as I couldn’t see one in the shop so check out the link at the end.  Only 4 items in this mini hunt and each is just 15Lds and I liked the look of all of them but I plumped for this simple and sweet melon bikini.  Comes as separates and in plenty of the main fits.

The La Perla group only costs 20Lds to join and you will find a room upstairs with La Perla gifts, join and pay 1Ld I think for each item, I only picked these shoes up.,

They’re NOT gold as my editing has cast a golden glow on them, they are in fact very metallic silver and excellent.

Now for a tease because for this hunt it’s melon chunks your looking for but you will spot on the floor in the main entrance is all the items from previous hunts still in their delivery system but NO KEY! So you can’t see what it is you will be buying, you can of course click on them and go into Edit and check the contents but as to how the item looks is going to be a surprise.  They’re so cheap, 10Ld etc and if you look at the quality of the La Perla shop I think you can guarantee they’re going to be decent little gifts.

PS,  While LM I did pick up a freebie from this shop and I’ve got my fingers crossed this little outfit/item turns out to be a goodie.
