Barf.(10Ld Belle Epoque gift).

Oh Lord, I swear I was just going to have the one Ferrero Roche as a treat, ONE box later and I’m ready to hurl and trust me they won’t taste half as nice second time around…..I have so little control!

This is a new GG from Belle Epoque and it’s a Thank You for I believe a 1000 likes on their FB page.  I could be wrong because I basically glanced at the notice and ran not walked to grab it.

The Belle Epoque group does cost 10Lds to join but that’s a tiny amount and there is not only other GG’s in the main shop entrance before you even get there-there are lucky boards outside. You do only get the one size, and yup it’s not an SLink size, but I have to say that apart from a bit of breakthrough on the back which is easily hidden by my long hair it’s a pretty decent fit.  I didn’t even bother to see if there is a demo but check to see if there is if you really want to know the fit.

25Ld Tues.

I thought I would have a nice leisurely time checking out this weeks “25Ld Tue” list and what I do is I first check out the shops I love before I work my way through the rest and as soon as I spotted that Belle Epoque has a special offer on it was my first visit and check these beauties out.

 YASSSS I’m a bit hating on SL at the moment because yet again another item I would love to have in RL! So nice and so cheap, 25Lds each colour and there is a blue shade but I didn’t buy that one as blue is not my fav colour.

You must try the demo first as you may just see that there is a bit of an Alpha gap and I suspect that these are designed for a Maitreya fit.  I don’t care I don’t think the gap is an issue certainly not for me and if it was I’m sure that the SLink body I use also comes with a Hud which allows you to create your own Alphas for things just like this but I’m lazy and again I don’t think it’s an issue as it’s hardly noticeable on me.

I must post this now because although a lot of the shops on the 25Lds Tue list keep their offers out all week some shops limit it to just 24 hours and so I’d hate you to miss these super boots.

PS.  You get the socks attached and they come with a 3 shade hud…again try the demo.

Just a quickie cos I need coffee!(10Ld Giftie).

I scare people when I’ve not had enough coffee so it’s time to log off, slurp some java and then come back sweeter and nicer but until then check this out.

I hate yellow but I’m not hating this goldish yellow and shockingly I don’t even mind the blue which is another colour at the bottom of my fav list but all of the 5 shades in this pack are so good, white, black, red, blue and of course these yellow ones.

Although they’re in the Belle Epoque shop you have to join the TeleportHub group for these and that group just like Belle Epoque is only 10Lds.  TeleportHub is a group I have found many nice goodies through.

This time I’ve taken my picture in my Nams setting so you can see the colour as it appears to me BUT these do come with a little bit of a disclaimer because you only get the 1 fit and I don’t know what mesh body it’s supposed to fit but it’s not my SLink mesh body.  My Hud does cover my Hooha up but it leaves a thin alpha layer at the waist and it’s not really that much of a gap but a simple longer top just covers that up.

Belle again.(25Ld Tue).

I’d be quick if I was you as I’m not sure if Janire Coba will keep this 25Ld Tue offer out all week until next Tue or it will finish before then.

You have 2 colour choices, pink or beige and this is the beige, both choices cost 25Lds but you do get a small 4 textured Hud for the fur collar…and yes that’s Alex again I told you any excuse to wear one of my fav hairs lol.

Tbh, I TPed over so quickly as I didn’t want to miss this I didn’t even wait for everything to rezz before I clicked and bought this so I don’t know if there is a demo available but of course, this oversized sort of item fits all.

You will also see that again this week there is this coat plus another 25Ld offer which is a Gacha and the theme of the items in this Gacha is “Painter” and YASS I won the 1 item I really wanted and it’s not even a rare, the bag I’m wearing is my prize and it’s stuffed with all sorts of arty stuff……just like my heart.

PS Remember there is some very nice GG’s inside inc amazing boots and only 10Lds to join the Belle Epoque group plus another 10 for the Teleporthub group.

Almost kicking myself.(10Ld)

I was just at Belle Epoque treating myself to something and I did check out the GG’s and LB’s to see if there was anything new whilst I was there and I had spotted these Mina boots but I’m pretty sure I’ve shown you these boots before so I just went on my merry way only for a notice to be sent out that these Mina boots are in fact Belle Epoque’s Novembers gift so I was wrong.

Actually, I’m still pretty sure I have either shown you these boots or a very similar pair from another shop BUT it doesn’t matter because the one thing I’m sure of these are a better quality than the old pair I have plus you get 6 shades in total and I don’t remember getting all of those! So I’m gonna rummage in my invent and toss out that old pair because these are simply superb.

It cost 10Lds to join the Belle Epoque group and there are other GG’s there, but the dresses aren’t a SLink fit, and I’ve blogged them before. There is a Teleport Hub gift, another 10Lds and WORTH it and yet another and a new gift from another bargain-priced group and yes I’ve forgotten what it was lol.

Before you go into the shop remember outside is 4 Lucky Boards with some Belle Epoque quality clothing in it so once you’ve joined the group and grabbed the gifties inside then kill some time outside and see if you can score a nice outfit.

I’m just playing around.(25Ld Tue).

This picture was taken only using a Windlight setting and how pretty is it but I got distracted when I spotted that Belle Epoque has a 25Ld offer out.

OK, first the super bargain which is this coat from Belle Epoque and is their 25Ld offer for the weekly 25Ld Tue event that I love to do.  You get the coat and dress which are a one piece.  I chose this red and grey version but there is a black and I think the underdress was pink.  One fit only but it’s a pretty standard fit and you can, of course, try the demo for yourself.  Next to this offer is another 25Ld Tue offer which is a Mary Poppins themed Gacha and I won the bag I’m wearing.

Just like I can’t wait for Halloween to wear my Mina Blair hair I can’t wait for Autumn to wear “Alex”.  Alex comes in 4 different ways, Fringe (bangs) and hair at the nape of the neck, fringe (bangs) only,  hair at the base only,  or no hair and just the hat.  Of course, there is a texture choice in the Hud.  Alex is now pretty old, about 4 years I think, but the quality has lasted and this one is still my fav but Mina now has, even more, hat hairs inc knitted ones so as always I will put the link for the mainshop so you can try them out if you want.

PS Alex comes in the male/female version in the pack.

We’ve started the countdown to change our sim from Autumn to Winter and I was just playing with the Windlight settings on our sim because as you can see it can make such a difference, but nope I won’t be using this one lol.

PS The 25Ld Tues offer is just outside the front doors to the Belle Epoque, on the left.  Still go inside because there are some fab Belle Epoque group gifts and I can’t remember the cost of the joining fee but it’s as cheap as I am and you all know I am one CHEAP B*

I smashed it!(Belle Epoque 10Ld Hunt).

Holy Moley, I got there before the hoard descended and managed to find all the hidden cupcakes I wanted and by the time I was TPing out Belle Epoque was getting crowded with other hunters.

On the sim is 15 hidden cupcakes, they’re both inside and outside of the shop and so easy to find. Each cupcake costs 10Lds and because it’s a paid for hunt there is a picture showing you exactly what is in each cupcake and I bet like me you will end up buying almost all of them.

I accidentally rezzed and not “worn” this amazing headdress but even more amazing is that rezzed it’s only 15 prims and it would make an amazing, yes I know 3 now 4 “amazing in 1 sentence but that’s what it is, centre table decor at a wedding, garden party etc or just wear it as intended LOL.  Taken in my Nams setting so you can see the quality and just in case you think those greyish bits are unrezzed bits they’re just twigs. Oh, and it can be resized but that doesn’t change the prim count.

Just a lovely variety of prizes, clothes, shoes, wearable bags which were so nice I even bought them and you know how I usually don’t bother with accessories but they were just too nice not too and then we have this sweet little cottage.

A perfect little playhouse for your Princess, a garden feature, cosy little cottage for a downsizer and at 20 prims you can rezz this on any size of plot.

And yes I got out my baseball bat and smashed it.

I wouldn’t have done this if it wasn’t copyable as I want to keep it as a lovely little cottage but you know me and as soon as I saw it was mod I modded the heck out of it!

All of that work was just to see if I could separate one of the cute bunches of flowers in the window box and yup I could.  That little bunch is only a single prim!  So if you do rezz this as a home or garden feature I personally would make oodles of copies of this bunch and plant them everywhere, in the garden, in plantpots, in the house in vases etc really use them as a feature.

OK now for my personal BOO HOO cos the clothes only come in 1 size and that’s not my size!  The outfit I’m wearing is one of them and although with my Alpha Hud I was able to cover up most of the breakthroughs I couldn’t really do it very well and had to edit a couple of patches, BUT you know I am addicted to my Mesh Body! I rarely take it off and I’ve even binned all of my systems layered and other clothes which don’t fit over it because I just don’t wear them anymore.  This doesn’t mean they won’t fit over your mesh body and of course not everyone wears them and so I’d highly reccomend you buy one of the outfits and try it for size and if that fits then you will probably find the rest will as well and if it doesn’t then you’ve only lost 10Lds which is a piddling amount for a Belle Epoque quality outfit.

Remember as well there is GG’s in the entrance, they’ve all been blogged before by me but that was a while ago.  Neither the Belle Epoque group or the Teleport Hub group are free to join but the cost is just a token one and the GG’s are well worth that price.
