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.

Last Location.(10Ld Bather)

I’d left my AV stood at the Up! Summer Event so when I logged back in I had a quick saunter around and found this goodie.

You will find this on the wall of the “Stylus Store” stand and it costs only 10Lds.

I’ve taken the picture just in our sim setting so you can see what you get.  You also get plenty of fits, sorry I’m totally out of SLing time so I can’t give you the list, and a nice 6 textured hud all with a retro theme ie red/white polka dots and again just 10Lds.

If the LM doesn’t take you directly to the Stylus stand then you won’t have much problem finding it as this is the perfect sized event, ie plenty of stands but not so many you get lost.

PS.  This is on the wall and not in a gift bag on the floor.

UUURRRGGGHHH.(10Ld Gifties).

It’s been just “one of those days”, you know what I mean, too much work too many things going on too many people needing stuff, add to that it’s hot and muggy and you’ve just run out of energy and that has been my day!  Then I found my OH’s coffee chocolates and I ate all of them so now I’m sat here feeling slightly queasy but only slightly guilty because if he didn’t want me to eat them then he should have hidden them better so it’s his fault I ate them….perfect logic.

I did manage to get a bit of SLing in I decided to check out a lot of shops off the beaten path but sadly I didn’t find anything with that “Ooo” factor and then I ended up at the “Up! Summer” event.

It’s the usual sort of thing, stalls with a mix of clothes and decor for sale and a lot of gifts bags with a small token price on them and I’m sure I spotted some free ones.

One of the stalls is for a shop I didn’t recognise called “LpOca” so I TPed over and scored some 10Ld goodies but I’m just going to show you the 1 gift as I’m lazy.  Obviously, you can work it out what the gift is from this picture, each bucket is only 3 prims and totally editable.  So I made a copy and then tore it apart and those pretty like pink flowers will make lovely patches of interest in your garden, even the bucket on its own is a good decor item.  The gifts are inside on the wall behind the desk and there are some which are rezzed for you to check out first.

PS.  Before you go inside check out the outside of the “LpOca” shop as it’s not a big shop and there are a couple of nice garden features I quite liked.

Heads Up.(25Ld Tue).

Just a quicky because it’s TUESDAY and you know what that means?  My fav weekly event of 25Ld Tuesday.

Because I know that Belle Epoque only keeps it’s 25Ld offer out for a very limited time go now and not later.  There is a demo available and I do believe this pretty dress is prob a Maitreya fit only I snapped it up,  yes there is breakout at the back but I can either live with it or as I have done in this picture I popped a hair on that goes down the back and covers up the minor breakthrough. but try before you buy.

OK, Nuff said because I want to check out the rest of the list and I’ve only managed to log inworld late and although a lot of the sellers do leave their special offers out till next tue some remove them from sale quickly and I don’t wanna miss any goodies I may find useful.

BTW although a lot of the shops involved with this event send out the full list of shops it doesn’t always happen so if you want to make sure you get the list then the group you need to join is “25Lds Tuesday Connection” and that way you can get the list from there.

Not a WASH out.(The Wash, lots and lots and lots of 10Ld bargains).

These pants are EXCELLENT.

I got these off the I.M Collection stand at The Wash Event and they only cost me 10Lds and I’m so pleased with them.  You get 5 super summer colours and 5 super summer flowers textures and yes they’re deffo keepers.

It was only when I was pulling a look together that I realised I should have scouted a top to match the pants as there is a lot of really good stuff at this round of the Wash but since I’d already bought these and another outfit, from the 1 Hundred stall, some plants and even a painting  AND then got suckered into spending at the Yardsale there I am refusing to go back to search out a top as I don’t need to be facing any more temptation.

PS. Although most items are priced at only 10Lds there are some for 50Lds so if price is an issue then make sure the price is what you want PLUS I did notice a few stalls, not many, had freebies/dollarbies so keep an eye out for those.

Gardening in SL(Freebies n Bargains).

I’ve just spent a lovely afternoon meandering in SL and picked up a few things to unpack and check out later but I found myself at this shop which made me spend Lindens!

You know me I’m a sucker for any sporty stuff and I so I happily snapped up this little yoga set which is one of the freebies at the LM given.

You get the 3 linked rugs, a bowl of joss sticks and a pile of rocks and I forgot to rezz the rocks.   2 nice yoga sequences and yes they’re real yoga moves and I do yoga, with a lot of grunting and a fear of farting.  There are more Freebies but I do remember showing you them, twinkling stars to lie on the ground and a headdress/horns made of branches.

This is the first thing I was tempted by.  50Lds for all of these pots and although I’m not 100% sure I’m 99% sure they’re copy.  Obv I already have a shocking amount of plants and planters but what I loved best was that although they’re all different they still go so well with each other.  I’m going to dot them around that patch of grass you can.

I’ve also moved 2 of them to this position but I’m not sure if they’re too fancy for my basic English cottage but I will make my mind up once I’ve finished faffing.  The smaller one of these 2 is actually lit and gives off a great and natural light..love it.  Will look great in a garden setting add a bit of depth.

UPDATE

AW Damnit! So I logged inworld to LM grab and spotted another 50lds offer which is a set old chimney stacks being recycled as planters.  Very similar to the ones I already have but deffo more in keeping with the English style of my home and so guess what?

Yup, I bought them but at only 50Lds cheap enough even for me.  Plus I also spotted this balloon which is another GG and I have an SL balloon addiction as well as a suitcase, umbrella, plants, shoes and poses addiction!

The only weeds I love.(Super bargains & Mention of Freebies).

I’ve got a bad gardening itch at the moment and so I  popped over to T-Spot to check out any new stuff and look at my “weeds”!

A lovely thick clump of weeds and flowers which make for a great splash of colour but at only 1 prim you can make a bigger clump and in this case I’ve put 3 of them in front of my window.

I’ve only bought the 1 pack but I’ve spotted that there are 3 versions of this weed patch so I will check them out to see if they’re different enough to buy but at only 35Lds so cheap! and copy and Trans!

T-Spot is a really good shop and as you can see there is also a Marketplace shop which I’ve put the link in for you to check out BUT you must see them inworld as they need to be seen to be believed.  Word of caution but it’s only a tiny weenie little word, there is a mix of prims and prices so before you buy to make sure they are what you’re after.

I think a lot if not all of the items from this shop are not only copy, mod but also trans and the reason for that is a lot of them are Full Perm.  There are restrictions on what you can do with full perm stuff which tbh I’ve never really bothered to look into even though I’ve bought full perm items before but they were still just for my own use.  Anyhow if you check the MP you will see in the description of the full perm items.

As for FREEBIES at the inworld LM there is a box of freebies, there is a bit of this and some of that and yes most of it ended up in my trash but a couple have been tucked away into my plants folder.  A small hint, ok not that small, I do remember one of the trees in this freebie box and it’s ok as a tree but it’s even better edited into a shrub.
