OH, Delilah!(5Ld Giftie).

Such an easy one for a Sunday morning.

Stayed up way too late last night getting my fill of SL and my last stop was the Spotlight/Hashtag event. A simple and small regular event and you’ve probably been there a few times already.  Not all of the stands have a gift out for us and most of them also come with a bargain price tag and in this case, it was just a piddling 5Ld and for that you not get this absolutely stunning gold dress but also a top which is pretty darn good.

This particular gift is on the TRS Design stall.  As I said most of the gifts come with a price tag and some do have pictures of the contents and some don’t so it’s up to you to take a risk but since none of the priced ones cost more than 10Lds you’re not risking much.

PS When I went back to LM grab I spotted that one of my fav shops, Sn@tch, has a stall and their gift is free but although I know it’s a choker I’ve not tried it on.

Spotlight/Hashtag Event

Worth every Ld.(Super Bargains).

I went over to Loordes of London just for these boots but damn it was hard which colour to chose from so, in the end, I went for this green one as I think it will make a great addition to an Autumnal wardrobe….yes in SL and RL I am actually looking at things with next season in mind.

OK I will blame it on the Hayfever and my constant sneezing when taking this picture but I’ve just spotted a “boo boo” in that the soles/base of these boots are much thicker than shown in this picture.  I forgot to “Hover” myself up a bit to compensate.  I’m not a big fan of the built up base but these are Loordes of London boots and they just make GREAT STUFF! They’re the Marks and Spensers of SL and that’s a good thing.

Since these cost money, 49Lds to be exact, I’ve shown them in my Nams setting and I’m pretty sure you will try the demo for yourself. You also get SLink, Hourglass, Belleza, Venus, Freya, Lara and Isis and even if you don’t wear mesh body you will still probably find a fit for your system shape and an Alpha in your invent.

The LM takes you to the walls with all the special offers ie “Steals and Deals” “Fifty Linden Thursday” etc and there are some new offers, these boots are on the end under the “See you Wednesday” banner and you can choose between 3 colours or for a few Lindens more, 55Ld, on the stall next to this one is some more colour choices.

Hashtag This.(5Ld Giftie & Oodles of Stuff).

I’m am determined to sit on my platform and unpack, bin, relabel, make notes and slurp coffee but of course, I couldn’t start all this without doing at least one post and so here it is.

Hashtag a monthly(?) event, a big room with lots of stalls and lots of stalls with gifts set out, some free but not many as most are priced at 5 and 10Lds with some a bit more than that.  The usual mix of clothes, tattoos etc some do have pictures of the contents and if not some tell you what’s in the box but some don’t and so you’re in for a surprise.  What I did buy I ended up binning it all BUT that’s also because I already have too much and there were a couple of items which did give me pause for thought but in the end, I thought “Nope”.  Personally, although the quality of the items in this low-cost gifts can be a bit umm basic I still LOVE it because apart from the fact I am always grateful a shop/creator has put something out I just love killing time and unpacking a load of stuff and sometimes you get something that makes you go YESSSSS!

And these amazing quality leg warmer thingies on the Miss Rue stand were a most definite “yes”.

You get 3 of the Belleza fits, eBody, Maitreya, SLink Physique and Hourglass plus standard classic AV and you even get the Alpha for that fit.

I will admit that I knew what I was buying as this is one of the gifts that does have a picture of the contents in it but the quality of the fit and texturing was the surprise.  Super lovely and yes obviously a keeper for me.  You will find her stall at the back of the shop.

I’m always grateful that I log in even if it’s just to make sure I get the right LM as I wouldn’t have noticed that there are in fact 2 large rooms at either end of the small platform stocked with stalls and gifts.  So if you can’t find the Miss Rue and this gift in one then you will obviously have to check out the other one.  It’s not a big platform and when you get there you will see exactly what I mean.

PS Talk about timing so I logged back inworld and a shop sent me a cup of coffee to drink, not just to me but probably every other subscriber as well.  So I now have everything I need to spend a pleasant afternoon on a very cool and wet English Summers day.

Wonder Woman!(VIP Gifties &Cheapies & Freebies & New Mina).

I got this new hair from Mina’s and I have to be honest I tried it on and shoved it back into my invent with a “hum not to sure about this one” and then this morning when I unpacked my little hoard from QE Designs it was a “NO WAY” because it turns out Lara with her 80ties vibes, to me at least, turned out to be perfect and not only that but I rarely use the darker/black shades and yet, in this case, that shade even worked out to be the best,

I want to know how many people look at this picture and don’t instantly think of the “Follow me” song in their head?

I had so much fun pulling this look together,  SL is for dressing up and Role Playing and just being who you want to be and in this case an 80ties Babe. I will put my hand up and admit that I’m as guilty as everyone for wearing very nice but “ordinary” clothes when I’m out and about in SL but I also really notice when someone is rocking an interesting and individual look and this is it for me.

I got this outfit from QE Design and the leotard is an Applier set with tattoo layers and it cost just 10Lds.  To join the QE Vip group it’s only 15Lds and you will notice the little doorway in the entrance  which is a TP to the VIP room and I tried it without my VIP Tag on and I could still TP up there so if you want to check out the other VIP GG’s before you join then you can and you can see all the fits/appliers they come with. Even though this “look” mightened be to your taste I’d recommend you do check the rest out before you make your mind up.  Forgot to mention the shoes are one of the VIP gifts which is why I’m wearing them.

I swear when Mina Nakamura created this hair she was either thinking of Wonder Woman or the 80Ties, I’m pulling a Wonder Woman pose here if you hadn’t guessed LOL.

Then I did a quick change to show you the hair as a close-up but also a toned down look.  The top is a FREEBIE also from the QE Design Shop and you will find this and a black version in the reception area of the shop.  The black was a bit flat in texturing and I almost didn’t try the gray on but I think you can see that because of the lighter colour you can deffo see more details and it comes with a hood on the back and you can wear it with or without the hood.  Sorry the pants are old gifties I will pop over to where I got them from but chances are they will have been long gone but any pants will do ie jeans, shorts etc

I’ve also toned down the hair into one of my fav colours.  You might also notice that all the hair is now swept back over my shoulders, unlike the other pictures where you have a lot of hair in front.  This option and the option to change the hair band colour can be found in the “options” tab in the menu.

A couple of things to mention is that now Mina hairs are in a new delivery system so you “wear” it and just click the window which opens and it’s sent to you.  A pretty standard system of delivery now.  Sorry I only got this hair yesterday and I know so little about it it was just too good an opportunity to use it so I will put the link to Mina’s main shop and I’m pretty sure the demo and more info will be in there and I will do an update to this post myself when I find out more about “Lara”

PS Just a slight update because as soon as I TPed over to Mina’s RL came a knocking but there is a demo for Lara as well as the LM to the event where you can buy it from plus I spotted that in the picture Mina has used there is no headband which I didn’t notice.  With the hairband this  big hair is 80ties but without the hair band it screams Warrior Queen to me.  Anyhow pop in, try the demo and snag the LM.

Have a great day and I’ll see ya’s later.

Nina’s Main Shop

Caboodle with me.(25Lds Group gifts).

Damnit I actually managed to get into FaMESHed and snag the New Mina and guess what?  It doesn’t go with this outfit LOL.  So I will save that for a later date esp since it was so laggy for me I didn’t even get a sniff of the freebies so hopefully, on my next visit I can score more.

Another “Damn” is how good I look in this picture and nope I didn’t edit the picture at all, this is just the sim setting which I had TPed over to to take this shot.  It always makes me wonder when I’m out and about in shops that some, not many though, don’t use the sort of settings that makes your customers and clothes look absolutely kick ass gorgeous.

So NO freebies but the Caboodle group is only 25Lds to join, people might recognise my leather pants as they’re a Lucky Board win and I now have about 4 of the shades.  They come in all the standard mesh fits with the feet inbuilt so you don’t need any mesh feet.  The LB gifts haven’t really changed but I swear that these leather leggings are such good things to have in y9ur invent and I’m so pleased to have finally got the pink pair you need to join just for the LBs gifts alone but don’t worry as they change relatively quickly as well.

The top is a new, to me, group gift.  Simple, gorgeous and comes with a hud of I believe 6 colours inc some floral patterned ones.  By the time I’d scored this lot I’d run out of SLing otherwise I would have also shown you the pencil skirts as well and if I’m not mistaken this top in the darker shades will suit the skirts to a T.  there are other GG’s there a couple I have shown you before and some poses etc.

PS and yes I’m still wearing a Mina hair because I LOVE Mina hairs.

Sweet Revolution(Freebie).

Oooo a nice and simple super Sunday giftie.  The first notice I opened was from “SR” (Sweet Revolutions) and once I saw it  it took me all of 4 mins to TP, group join, snag, tp, slap it out, take 3 pictures and Voila!

xxxsnowuse2 frosty tree’s with stringed lights hanging down.  As you can see they make a great simple way to create an entrance to your home, garden etc

xxxsnowuse2

I took both piccies in our sim setting and I’ve not had a chance to play around with the settings to see how these lights change but I can only imagine they just get better.

10Li’s for the pair BUT they’re unlinked which means each tree is only 5Ls,(did you see what I did there?)  So if you don’t have space or Li’s for both then one has enough visual impact on its own.  I didn’t notice if it was mod, too busy rushing to get this posted, but I did notice they’re non copy.

Sweet Revolutions is one of those shops that may lean towards, RP, Gor, Medieval etc you will be a FOOL not to slap the sub/group boards because this shop has so many bargains, discounts, group gifts etc and both Faith and I have quite a lot of stuff from this shop and use it for sim decor.

I’m boring! (Super 10Ld Bargains).

Honestly, I have about a Zillion Poses and Props in my invent and I hop from one pose to another and another and end up picking one of the simple ones because I’m basically a simple girl at heart.

xxxplatformfrost

I picked this up from the Marketplace from a shop I’m pretty sure used to be an inworld one but I could be wrong.

xxxplatformfrost2

This dress comes with that mesh strappy thing which tbh doesn’t add to this dress but might go with another outfit you may have in your invent in anycase.

You will have to log into the N-Uno Marketplace shop but there is a selection of Dollarbies and 10Ld items.  Just in case you think you’re getting the whole colour palette you’re just getting 1 shade so if you want a particular colour ie pink, brown, blue, green etc you will have to make sure you select the right colour.  At 10Lds each you could pick quite a few and there is a rather nice looking skirt/coat combo and a sweet set of pastel coloured dresses.
