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.

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.

N-Uno

It’s heartbreaking! (New Mina, Freebies,Bargains).

A very simple picture of a simple and lovely Autumn look a new Mina from the newest round of FaMESHed.  Called Farah and although it’s at FaMESHed the price hasn’t been bumped up so it’s the standard 250Lds for a shade pack.  As always I will put the link to the main shop because TBH FaMESHed will be packed and this way you can check out the demo iin Lag Free heaven in Mina’s main shop but yet again I must mention that if you’re after a woolly knit hat/hair and or unisex/men’s hair this IS the shop to go.  PS FaMESHed does go on till the end of the month so you have plenty of time.

xxxriceuseYet another excellent GG from FA Creations, I always grab the freebie from this shop but this is also one of the shops I actually spend lindens in having said that I’ve dusted off the woolly’s I bought last Autumn and they have stood the test of time so that’s me sorted.  Oh and this look is a linked top/pants with a colour hud that changes the colour of the woolly but the pants stay the same shade.

Boo Hoo!

Noooo Ricielli have another one of their useless hunts going on! I say “useless” simply because the pumpkins are enormous and no attempt has even been made to hide them.  Each pumpkin costs only, sorry I forgot to check but it’s usually something around the 15/20Ld mark, and check out the board behind me because you can see whats in each pumpkin before you buy and you can also see the sheer quality! It makes me wanna weep that I can’t go pumpkin hunting.

But never fear, I’ve mentioned this before but for any new readers to our blogg check this out….

xxxriceuse3

Holy Crapoli!, the owner’s of Ricielli keep ALL of the old hunt set out hidden in one of the shops and they’re all still at the bargain prices.  TBH I’m not really sad here because I already have or had so many of these I’m not missing out but check this place out and for not much Lindens you can absolutely fill your invent.

BOO! (Hoo)(inc Hunt)

I’ve rewritten this post so many times but lucky for you lot I’ve decided to bin all those long and rambling posts and just tell you about the event and also show you this excellent bargain-priced Halloween decor item.

I went to the Swank event which is a monthly event and in celebration of Halloween has oodles of hunt gifts out for you but you will have to scan and cam for them because the roses you’re looking for can be either very small or very faint and in some cases both so I’m pretty sure I didn’t get as many that are out for us because as soon as I got to the back of the shop/mall I spotted a big entrance with a sign that said something “do you dare enter” MEH of course I dare!  What lies beyond that door I will leave for you to find but as you can see from this picture it’s worth a visit.

And as I was wandering around I spotted this.

xxxhouseuse

It’s the burnt out shell of I believe the very  house I’m in and one click turns it back into a burning inferno.

xxxhouse2

Then when I prim checked ONLY 2 PRIMS so I had to check it some more.

It comes from a marketplace shop called “Gothic Horror Shop Biker Store” and although there is an inworld shop it seems to be pretty poorly stocked compared to the MP one.  The MP shop has oodles of Dollarbies, 10Ld and other low priced Halloween stuff and even at 50lds for this burning house the quality of it and the low primage makes it a steal.  I promise I have actually bought it but since it was set out already I decided to be cheeky and just take the picture there and then.  My one and only small moan is that it comes linked to the table it’s sat on, not a biggie and no I haven’t had time to see if it could be unlinked etc but it’s nothing.  Honestly you need to check it out

AND of course I still haven’t finished the rest of the Hunt in the main shopping mall and I’ve not even unpacked anything I’ve picked up so far
