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.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that.(FREEBIES & one for you Moz).

I will post the piccies and brief descriptions first and leave my insane babbling until the end but there is info in all of that babble about more FREEBIES if you wanna check it out.

Arty shot.  A really good dress with all those wrinkles ‘n’ crinkles and if you peer closely you can see that it comes with a chain belt that is also a thigh chain.  The hud that comes with it only changes the colour of the chain.

A more natural setting, me househunting again!  Actually, I was sent an LM for a rental sim and since Faith and I love to neb on rentals sims I decided to check it out.  BIG houses and although they’re not cheap you do get great value considering not just the sizes of the properties but excellent prim allowance.  LM to the rental office at the end.

This top is another freebie.

Last Freebie is this great top which has exc detailing on the back.  The 2 tops and the dress all come from the same shop called “Justice” and MOZ and those of you with significant others there is a really good male gift as well.

Now for the BABBLE, and more freebies.

The jeans and shoes are from a couple of recent posts so I will put the link to where I got them but if you scroll back a few posts you will be able to read about them.  The hair is the Mina one which in my head reminded me of her most recent one, scroll back for that post, but when I put it on it is more different than similar and I actually prefer this hair which is good as “Elin” is actually upstairs at Mina’s in the discount section so for only 125Lds (I think it’s that) you get a hair pack colour of your choice.  Check out the rest of the Discounts, demos available of course, as well as Mina’s MP shop as she may have moved and reduced some hairs but it’s not because they have become old and outdated it’s only because her newer hairs come in really fat hair colour packs so you can score great hair for a great discount.

I did go to the Gachaland event and of course, there are LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of gifts which is how I ended up in the Justice main shop.  Once I’d grabbed all of the gifts, lots of the usual but top quality gifts, I opened a few from shops which I didn’t really recognise the name of so that’s how I ended up checking out “Justice” and finding these really good GG’s.

Mina’s (Elin is upstairs in the discount section)

Gypsy Chic(5Ld joining fee and a selection of gifts inc 2 great pair of shoes)

Nalah Designs (for the jeans and other gifts but they’re on the wall dotted around the shop)

Gachalands (Lots of gifts and tempting Gacha’s, you have been warned).

Good Morning Monday.(Freebies ‘n’ Bargains).

Blimey, I’m going to have to check out that new place Faiths just did a post about!  Until then here is my usual rambling post.

So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty.  Legendaire is once again a free to join Group and although there are new freebies I’m not wearing those. What I am wearing is a pair of the super bargain boots which she has out for us and at 49Lds not only did I buy this pair but I also bought the second pair of boots simply because they’re excellent.  I’m not showing you all of the detailing with buckles and zips plus both pairs come in all the main mesh fits plus 10 colour hud and again just for 49Lds each pair!  As it happens I was almost just about to TP back to Legendaire to buy these when one of our readers sent me a Gift Card for Legendaire! So that was such a sweet thought and turned out to be perfect timing.

At the front door to the Legendaire shop is where you will find some of the gifts and offers BUT you have to go into the shop on the left because that’s where you will find the newest Legendaire gifts but for the boots they’re on the wall at the back of the shop along with other offers.

When I was trying to pull a look together for these boots I came across this skirt in my invent which has been blogged before but it’s still out and it’s still excellent so LM at the bottom for that. I do believe there are 2 groups the cheapo one and the VIP one and this is for the non VIP group.

The top is I’m pretty sure a gift from one of the recent events I’ve been too but it’s also in the Sorumin shop as a GG.  You can change the colour of it by touching the top but it wouldn’t work for me so I simply clicked on it in my “worn” tab in my invent and the colour hud popped up so woohoo for that.  There are other gifts in this shop and I esp love the wearable notebook and Kawaii bag.   It’s not a big shop and seems to be mainly made up of Gacha machines.

Before you run off to try on your new goodies either use the Lm or simply walk out of the Sorumin shop across the pretty snowy bridge to the shop on the other side called “Yokai” and there you will find more freebies for everyone to buy at 0Lds.  You can’t see them but I am actually wearing a pair of pretty bead earrings in the shapes of hearts that I picked up from this shop apart from the pretty candles I can’t actually remember what else is on the stand but I do remember that this is yet another shop stuffed with Gacha’s because I splashed out on a couple.

Before you TP to the last LM either use my LM for Yokai or leave the Sorumin shop and walk across that pretty bridge to the Yokai shop.  A selection of free for all gifts just next to the reception desk and although you can’t see them I’m wearing earrings which were one of the many gifts.  This shop has even more Kawaii Gacha’s that its neighbour and be warned they’re full of temptation.

FREE, 25Lds and “you paid how much”!!!!

Faith has waved her fairy wand and our sim has gone from blinding white to green in celebration of Spring, and yes I know it’s early but it’s our SL and in our SL it’s getting warmer.

Anyhow, I decided it was time to refresh the tree’s, any excuse to go shopping.

This is the FREEBIE from Nadine Reverie’s shop called 3D Trees (but there is more than just tree’s in her shop or rather her sims).

I’ve rezzed 2 copies of this Hawthorn Tree and shrunk the one that’s slightly in front of the larger one.  Both sizes are 10prims but this is a substantial tree and if you have a small plot then a tree of this size is a perfect plot filler.  Although it’s a freebie it lacks none of the quality and a nice little bonus is that it’s copy and MOD, my fav word.  I didn’t tear it apart limb from limb but I know that you can take big chunks of it to create big shrubs and they work out at just 1 prim.  So I’ve left these 2 on our sim and when I get back in I’m gonna shred em.

These trees are the 25Ld ones and I will be back to the “Over the Moon” shop as there is other landscaping items at more than reasonable prices.

All of these pictures were taken in our sims setting and I think there is a lovely haze around these trees but they stand up so well in so many settings and again only 25Lds! Copy as well, not sure about mod as I’ve only just started slapping stuff down and will get to the finer landscaping when I’ve got all the planting I want.

These trees come in sets of 6 linked together and for the linked trees they’re only 2 prims and they have a nice random link to them and I have spotted they are mod but I’ve not played with them yet.

These are the “you paid how much”trees.

TBH I can’t remember how much I paid for these Larch tree’s it probably was something like 1,250Lds and they were worth every Linden.

One of the lessons I’ve learned is that if you can buy landscaping that is seasonal then buy it because if it’s as quality as these are they will last you not just for SL years but SL seasons as changing out seasonal landscaping can cost you so much money in the end so trees, shrubs etc like this can end up being a great investment in the end.

You can also buy these trees at cheaper prices, I think they start at 300Lds, of course at that price they come with some restrictions ie non-copy, non-seasonal etc but it’s clearly marked on the box as to what that set does.  As I’ve said I’ve got the seasonal and in this picture they’re set for spring.  This is a great shop even if you just have a small plot as you can buy eveything from a single tree to a forest and with if you check out her MP shop you can buy from as little as 10Lds!

PS. These massive trees and unbelievably only 2-3 prims.

3D Trees. (Inworld) OK, The LM will take you a set LM and in front of you is 3 boxes clearly marked and you just click on the one for the trees and once you’ve TPed you just  follow the path through the”golden archway” past the AV, I swear he has been stood there for a couple of days now, past the grapevines on the trellis and VOILA it’s just there on the small hill in front of the Swamp Cyprus tree’s LOL.  Sounds a bit convoluted but honestly if you go over I think it will all seem clear as to where you have to go to find it plus I must add that I don’t think the tree is marked as being free but when you click on it you can see it is.

10 out of 10. (10Ld Gift& super 99Ld Tree)

It’s finally here, my Christmas spirit that is and I’m not talking about the boozy sort of spirits lol.  With my OH being poorly, RL, work, and all of that sorta thing these last few weeks have been a bit of a struggle but now he’s back to full health and more importantly back at work and OUT OF MY HAIR! I can now start to actually get back to normal and I started it all off with an overnight stay to an amazing RL Christmas market.

Anyhow, that’s enough about RL so here is something for your SL.  I found this big Christmas shop quite a few weeks ago and because it was way too early to even be thinking about anything that twinkles I filed it away for a revisit nearer the time and the time is NOW.

I took a quick snap of this sleigh in the shop itself because I wanted to get a post up but I didn’t want to leave the shop as I will be buying something very twinkly for our sim I just haven’t decided what as yet.  It looks like you cannot buy the item from the shop when you click on it it takes you to the MP which is where you buy it and it’s just delivered to you inworld.  I will give you both the inworld and MP links because to truly appreciate all of the sparkles and glittered decor and lights you have to see them inworld.  Although the decor is for all sims there is a nice selection of stuff for people who live on a beachy tropical themed sim so even you sun lovers can still have some Christmas sparkle on your palm trees.

Now I know why the name of this shop & shop owner ,Antreas Alter, seemed to be so recognisable it’s because although this is the Christmas shop “Real Waves” is a very well known brand in SL for it’s beachy stuff.  I’m pretty sure I have a wave package from here but I’m 100% sure I have that dollarbie enviromental pack as near to my SL home I have a bit of a sea theme going.

PS.  I made my mind up and if you’re wondering this is what I bought.  I didn’t even see it in the inworld shop but if it’s anything like the rest of the stuff here I don’t need to see it to know it’s going to look stunning.

UPDATE.

I just had to come back inworld to check my tree out and this is it, this is my Christmas decor for just outside of my house and it’s stunning.

I didn’t really read the details before I bought it but for 99Lds you get quite a lot of “versions” but this one is the winner for me and it’s now outside my house as my one and only “Christmas tree”.  The leaves are that sharp metallic shape to them and the fruit also shines but the whole lot twinkles.  Honestly so pretty.  Although I didn’t see this in the Christmas shop I do believe it is there if you want to check it out before you buy but if you just want to go for it then read the details about all the different versions you get and what you can do with it.
