I buy SO many backdrops, seriously – I think its the new “gacha” for me – I just cant stop. Minimal are my absolute favourites though – well made, in proportion and really on trend. So I headed over there today to check out if anything caught my eye – and it did ! The two backdrops on the lower part of the photo above are group gifts – plenty other gifts to grab also and all the store quality that Minimal sell. There is a small join fee of $50L which is tiny in comparison to the fact you can fill your boots with stuff as group gifts PLUS you get 10% discount when buying and wearing your group tag – nice! I bought the two backdrops on the upper part of the photo and ohmydays – they are lush! I know I’m actually going to be using these for the winter ❤
I have lost count of the 1) The amount of cash I have spent on back drops 2) Where they are in my inventory 3) How many I actually own!
So with that in mind I decided to take a gander on the market place to see what I could find without spending a ton of dosh. After about 10 mins I had collected the above for the grand sum of $2L ! The red carpet by Perfect shapes is pretty well-known but still worth grabbing as its dead useful @ $0L. The dandelion and wooden floor by [SouthSide] is handy too and just $1L. I know I’ve bought the garage backdrop before – and couldn’t find it ! It’s by Yumi Chiuh and is $1L, such a great one to get as you can dress it up with vehicles or make a grungy street scene for your photos. Saintstreet have this blue room with light cubes, all linked and dead pretty for $0L, and my current fave is the plain room by the same store, so easy to scatter a few pieces of furniture, add drapes etc too and again $0L.
Awww yes indeedy, it was one year ago today that Pure Eggs & spam opened their blog doors! Its been a sensational year for us as we have learnt & grown. We had a lil pink type partay in the Pure studio..I wanted Stevie to smile but frankly it was a “whoaaewww” moment..guys just look kinda dorky when using facial animators right? So he looks glum and aloof and guy’ish amid the pinkness *smirks*
We’re sooo thankful to the designers who allow us to review their creations and show you the newness! I always used to be a little shy about “speaking” to some..but I can honestly say I’m glad they spoke to us! We’ve found many new friends through blogging….from those that write in, some who give us tips for new & sooper stuff and of course the designers themselves..who despite being terrifically busy always find the time to say “hi how you doing”. I have personally found sooo many new stores & creators through blogging, is that a good thing? It means MORE shopping yay! Sooo whats a partay without giftsss….of courrrse there’s a gifty for all the Pure group members, it’ll be winging its way to you all as soon as I’ve gift wrapped it !
Personally I’ve really enjoyed being involved with some of the charity events that are held, and am in awe of those that arrange & organise them,there are some really fabbo ones coming up this year too!
Huge birthday type kisses & hugs for all of the Pure group, designers & friends…*chinkchinkglugglug* Heres to another year blogging!
