I failed!(Freebie n Dollarbie n New Mina).

Although I did manage to clear out some of my invent with so many offers coming through from the freebie groups I’m in thatI had to go and check them out and ended up with more stuff in my invent.

KEEPERS for me and I say it in plural because you get the skirt, top, sunglasses, bag and flippy flops and then times them by 2 because you get this set as well.

I’m not actually sure which texture is my fav so I’m keeping both.  They come as separate and in all mesh and non-mesh bods.  The flip flops also come with if I remember a 6 colour hud option but sorry can’t remember the feet they are for and yes I rezzed the bag even though it comes with a wearing pose, not used, as it makes for a great decor item and again if my memory is correct it was about 6 prims.

There are other Group Gifts but although this little number is in the DM shop you have to join the free “Ficamos Lindas” group, just click on the image and you will get the link to join.

I also spotted that the pictures on the floor leaning against the wall are all set as Dollarbies and I grabbed this one.

This boobie flashing cheeky little number strikes a bell with me so I don’t know if Faith has blogged it a while ago or it was sent out in a previous notice and I just didn’t follow up but anyhow here it is.  The top comes in all sizes and also a colour hud and the panties are in an Omega applier as well as the system clothing layer.

Now for the New Mina hair and I think you can tell from the styling that this is available at “The Vintage Fair” and is called Betty.  The fringe on both sides have big fat pin curls which give it that “retro” look.

As you all know I’m not into techie stuff but the one thing with all the big and busy events that now take place I have become more acutely aware of that little box that pops up to tell me what my “avatar complexity” is, and just to test it out I’ve popped a non Mina hair on and it’s sent the numbers rocketing through the roof and that often can cause you to lag or for other people not to be able to see your AV fully formed, is this when you become a Jelly person?  I’m not really sure if I have any Mina hair that even scratches the surface of being lag causes but she has always included a “Material” and Non-Material” version in her packs.  The non-material simply mean that they’re just slightly not as complex and therefore someone who has a computer that struggles with SL or busy places might find this is a better version to wear.  She’s now made it even simpler and there are now 2 tabs on the side of the hud for you to click to whichever option suits you so you don’t have to take one hair off to put the other version on you just click the Hud.  BUT again I have to say that for all their details and texturing I cannot think of any of her hairs even the material version comes come even close to making you have issues.

As Alway check out the Mina Mainshop for the Demo but don’t worry as this is such a large event the couple of times I’ve been over it’s been busy but also quiet enough for a nice saunter around.  The LM takes you close to her shop it’s simple just one of them on the corner so easy to find.

I bring you roses.(Freebies).

I have no idea of what the other GG’s from Bijou are because as soon as I put this one on I didn’t care.

I didn’t actually realise the top comes with the matching shorts so that was a lovely extra.  Just such a simple sweet look and yet because of the saucy boob drapery very sexy.  All the mesh bod fits as well.

The Bijou group is free to join and this and the other GG’s are upstairs but as I said I’ve forgotten what they were as soon as I saw this “keeper”.

Ooo UPDATE Because I’m inworld and I’ve tried on the 2 other GG’s I had, there is still more I didn’t get, and one is a rather bright red bikini and the other a crop top/jumper with a slogan on and both are REALLY good so if this outfit isn’t something you want or need still pop over to check out the rest.

Twist & Turn !

After a few days of trying things on and fiddling about with the alphas on my Slink Physique Hud – it is SUCH a relief to slide into some newness from Neve. No alphas required usually, and fits like a glove – every.damm.time! Soooo its Famesheds birthday and Neve rocked up to celebrate with a new range of skirts and tops. Gorgeous prints, stunning plains and some zingy stripes . Naturally you do get four colour options per pack plus you can alter the flap side of the skirt – über gadgety and I love.

Demos are freely available at the event and it seems to have calmed down a  bit now as I was able to get in yesterday. You can buy these as separates, so whatever packs take you fancy you can mingle them with each other.

Definitely not a Bum Shot.(Free n Cheap).

Oopsie, I forgot to click “publish”.

This simple but lovely outfit comes from a shop called Damoour.

snapshotuse1

It cost you to join the Damoour group but it’s only 20Lds which is a piddling amount and for that, you get not just the shorts but a dress which looks ok but I just went for the shorts as at the same shop are gifts from other groups and this FREE top caught my eye and I was hoping that the top and shorts would make a cute outfit and I wasn’t wrong.

I did take a picture of my rear end to show you these shorts from behind but the picture was so dark it wasn’t worth using, the reason I wanted to show you my bum was to show off that these shorts are cut high enough to show off a cheeky bit of bum cheeks without it being tarty.  The top is, of course, a SL classic of a simple strappy top but this pink one with a slight satin sheen means it one of the better freebies of this style.  I’m keeping, I think, both of these as they’re just simple and so easy to wear and look so good. Both come in ALL standard mesh and mesh bod sizes.

PS There is also 2 gifts for men at the Damoour shop as well.

It HURTS so badly!(Freebies n Cheapies).

I’m drowning in FREEBIES, but the dress I am going to show you is the “cheapie” and you can have a lovely time grabbing and unpacking all the freebies.

I popped over to Asteria Creations, not even sure why but I did and as the LM started to rezz I spotted all these “tombstones”, I was a bit laggy yesterday, but as soon as everything rezzed perfectly I spotted that they’re not tombstones but clothes stands.  The ones I first checked first were the ones to the left  and it turns out those are discounted outfits but I’m glad I continued looking at them all because the ones on the right turned out to be all FREEBIES.

xxxarlause

I ended up going click crazy because the freebies also come in so many different colours/textures etc I just lost control.  I am going to have to be really strict and bin as much as I can but it’s going to be hard and I still haven’t been able to unpack it all.  One thing for sure is you’re going to spend a very pleasant time trying this lot on and deciding what to keep yourself.

I only bought the 1 item from the discounted side and it was so worth the measly 25Lds and it’s a KEEPER.

xxxarlause2

It’s a 2 piece called Arian, with a long under dress and short outer dress.  Obviously, can be worn together or as separates.

xxxarlause5This is the under dress worn on its own and as you can see its a simple slip dress.  A lovely off-white/cream colour with a satin sheen, the ruffled hem makes this stand out and so wearable just on its own.

xxxarlause3

The outer dress as you can see in this picture can only be worn by those who are wearing bikini’s under neither or those who like to flash their boobies, we call them sluts in the UK, having said that if my RL boobies were are nice as my SL ones I would probably flash them any chance I’d get LOL.  What’s not so clear in this picture is that this outer dress is also slightly sheer so there is a hint of bikini or flesh coming through.  If by any chance you’re not too keen on this colour/texture there are other options as well.

PS The paid for dress, like all the other items of clothing, only comes with standard mesh sizes but this sheer one fits perfectly over my SLink mesh bod.
