A little bit of this and a little bit of that.(Freebie ‘n’ Cheapies).

Ta-Dah! A woman at work changing the sim from Autumn to Winter.

The only freebie in this picture is the top.  I’m not a keen “sloganny” person BUT I made an exception for this rather good freebie from R3VOLT.  It comes in a lot of fits and a hud.  In this hud I believe are 3 plain colours but for once I actually really like the Christmassy images because just like this stringed light version the images are cute and subtle at the same time.  Its a keeper for me.

The R3VOLT VIP Group isn’t free, I think it’s 200Lds and there are some nice gifts but this top is a Subscribers gift so slap the sub-board and check the history and it’s the no “2” note.  I also have to say that the R3VOLT is a shop where the owner has spent as much time creating a landscaping and shop decor to match the mood of the shop contents.  Impressive.

OH and I do believe that there is a mans gift inc in the sub gift, so Moz might be tempted.

The “cheap” is my lippie.  As I was rummaging on the Marketplace I came across a shop called “Viena” and it has a few 10Lds lippie packs and because they  were cheap enough to try I bought 3 of these packs and love all 3 of these packs.  I’m wearing, obviously, one of the plainer colours but it has the nicest and lightest of sheens to it but as you will see there are some really unusual shades.  Make sure to check out which mesh heads they work with but I think Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega are the most common ones.  There are demos available

We’re starting early on the sim because RL is gonna be busy and it’s nice to be able to start early than leave it late and not enjoy a lovely wintery sim.  Faith has her jobs to do and I get to do all the fancy pants stuff.  At this moment I have such random cr*p rezzed but before I get all spendy I want to make sure I don’t already own it.  I have taken all my pictures just using my Nams prim n skin setting but I can’t want to see how these “sparkles” look when I decide on which windlight setting to use for Winter.

So it’s just the “sparkles” layer. I will put the LM to our sim so you can check it out for yourself.  Only 11Lds and 1 prim I’m going to go crazy with this sparkle.

PS.  If you do visit our sim then please ignore the mess as I’m just rezzing a whole load of randomness till I decide what’s going to stay and what’s going to go.

I got spendy.(Bargains ‘n’ Discounts).

As I was roaming SL I came across a swimming pool that I really, really want so I TPed over to Nomad which is where it comes from and so far not so good as I haven’t been able to find it but what I did find was the “Discount Room” and everything in there is priced between 25-50Lds.

I almost lost control but in the end, I just bought this set of lamps and a bed.

I’ve just used my sims windlight setting and also because I have a strong light on the wall just above the floor lamp it makes the texture look slightly different but they’re the same and you can see that for yourself in the Nomad shop.  The table lamp is 2 prims and the standard/floor lamp I believe 3 prims I did check and I’m pretty sure they don’t emit any light themselves.

Nope, I did not need yet another bed but I swear I don’t have a dusty daybed in my invent and with some nice poses, inc couples but I didn’t check those, and a 50Ld price tag I snapped it up.

There is a TP board to the different departments and also for the 10Ld joining fee there are some gifties and if it wasn’t for the fact it’s time to log off and return to SL I would have snapped them up but they’re fun and cute and quality I especially liked the Googly glasses.

PS.  I found the pool it’s stunning but even though it’s not an unreasonable price because it’s more than I have at the moment I’ve added it to my “wish list” for future purchase…..as well as the Pitcher plant and the flowers in vases and that’s when I decided it was time to log off before I caved in to temptation.

It said “buy me” so I did.(Super bargains & mention of Freebies).

I’m not being lazy but I spent so much time at Bazar I ran out of SLing time I’m using the picture I took in the Bazar shop.

This wall hanging bike not only cost just 35Lds I do know because as soon as I grabbed it and TPed home to check it out that you get this wall version AND also a standing one and each is only 2prims!  Then I TPed back to Bazar as I really wanted to check the whole shop out and ended up buying quite a lot of the smaller decor items, ie plants, and bags and I think the most expensive item was this bike so it shows you how many bargains there are but of course they’re mainly the smaller items but check out the larger pieces as they’re most reasonably priced as well.

SPECIAL MENTION.

There is a whole wardrobe set which is so tempting to me.  You can buy it bit by bit or buy the fat pack, I would find it so handy to use as a backdrop but I do believe you can have a whole wall of wardrobes stuffed with bags, shoes, clothes for ONLY 14Prims! in your home, if you like a touch of realism to your SL life.

Then I decided to check out the builds, the TP to the rezzing platforms is to the right of the LM and it was the “new” Windmill that made me go “ooo” but of course I already own at least 1 windmill so I didn’t buy it but I was very impressed with it.  It comes with a reasonable price tag, under 1000Ld but check it out for yourself if you’re in the market for in interesting home..

PS.  The freebies have been out in this shop for quite a few years so I know for sure we have blogged them at least once, probably a few times so I won’t blog them again.  You will find them in the main entrance and there is also a dollarbie.

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.
