The Free and the beautiful

Boudoir gacha & Free! Exile collabor88 peaceful easy feelings

Ok, so I’m a sucker for a good gacha machine – or maybe I am addicted – either way, when Boudoir has a new gacha I always tend to dash over and try my luck. Boudoir always has such prettttty things ! Double delight as there was also a new group gift out (I have been a member for ages, so I’m unsure if the group is a free join or not – but deffo worth whatever it is) – the spring dress above . It’s just SO beautiful, the petals actually are on a separate layer that drift and float around you, there’s a big fat bow too. My hair I snapped up earlier today from the current round of collabor88, its “peaceful easy feeling” from Exile, the flower crown (which is optional to wear) comes with a colour hud so you can tie it in with whatever you’re wearing. Sooooo the gacha huh? Well I only got one double which was a result and I didn’t win the rare “boohoo” but I got a great assortment of pieces, all Easter themed. At $50L a pop not expensive, go have whirl.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I have no idea of where the phrase “easy pease lemon squeezy” comes from but I’m pretty sure it’s something we used to say as kids and it basically means something is easy.

So before I logged off last night the notice came through from Boudoir that their Christmas Group Gift is out and ALL of SL turned up to grab it fortunately I am the Queen of Camming so I bypassed the crown and cammed inside past the crowd and grabbed.

Boudoir

Bright bold and sexy.  The Poinsettia and the bow are add ons and although I’m not wearing the shrug in the next picture there is no way I wouldn’t wear this amazing bow which makes the whole outfit stunning.

Even though I usually indulge in some editing when something is a freebie I just used my Nams setting because these colours are beautiful.  I’m so sorry I wish I could tell you about the rose encrusted hair because it has such a packed colour option but the shop it came from is now gone.

Time limitations means I can’t tell you much about Boudoir but this is a shop you need to visit when you have some time to spare as it’s just packed with amazing and original designs.

Oops I’ve just noticed that in the second picture the belt has buried itself into me a little bit but that happens sometimes with ridged items. You do have to join the group but that’s FREE.

And then as soon as I came inworld I got a notice from Trompe Loeil and OMG check em out.

tromp

Freeeee Treeee’s.  Ok you only get 2 but since they’re copy I went a bit crazy.  A sparkling tree in a sack you get 2 coloured sacks, shown.  The little winter scene you can see is something I completely forgot about it’s Trompe Loeil’s Christmas Advent Calendar.  The Calender itself is free and I believe it’s only 4 prims, 7 for the tree’s.  However to get the daily items for you advent calender you have to buy a key from a Gacha then rezz the key next to the Advent Calendar in your home and a little door opens are you are sent a lovely goodie.  Having had last years Trompe Loeil calender I know that the items are usually stunning and I will be going back straight away not only to get the LM but also start grabbing the Advent items.

This is my gratuitous arty shot although again all of these pictures taken in my Nams setting.

Sadly even I will have to remove some of the tree’s I have rezzed, I don’t think 7prims is an unreasonable count for something so beautiful and it looks just as gorgeous on its own or a couple rezzed at your front door will look outstanding.

PS you do have to pay a single Linden for the tree but it is refunded straight away.

UPDATE looks like I’ll have to pop over to the Arcade Event because thats where the key Gacha is to be found.  I reccomend you read the note that comes with the free Calender to make sure you don’t waste your key but remember even if you don’t want any of the gifts the calender on it’s own is a beautiful decor item.

Swimming with Turtles

Boudoir Summer Gacha - wearable swimming turtle 50L ! kokolores Faye hair NEW! Valentina E ruffled Bikini

I know I know, it’s usually dolphins people crave to swim with, but I’ve always had a fondness for turtles. Zan, bless her cotton socks gave me a double she had got from the boudoir summer gacha, which reminded me I hadn’t blogged my prize ! There was ONE item I really really really wanted, and I got it first go yay! This adorable  turtle is wearable, so it takes up zero prims, you can whizz about on land with it, or as above under the water. I felt a little bit like a mermaid awwww. All the tiny fishes and the baby turtle are linked, so they all follow along – this HAS to be my favourite summer thing everrrrr. 50L per play, which for the quality of the prizes is a real steal. My ruffly bikini is from ValentinaE, lots choices of colours and a great fit .

Easter Surprises (Freebies incl.)

FREE Bunnie outfit

I just had to share this super little gift from Boudoir with you before I head to bed. It just came out today and as I have long admired the amazing outfits in that store , I hurried across to claim my group gift ! The group is free to join btw yay! You get this adorable bunnie girl outfit, mesh body suit in yellow stripes – what could be more Eastery ! Love the floral bouquets at the bust and around the ears, on the rear is a darling little bunnie tail too. Yes, the collar is also part of the outfit. Thanks Boudoir!

Easter decorations - moving gangsta chick and Easter cat 10L each !

While I was there I couldn’t resist picking up these two little fellows. Both only 10L each, the gangsta chick – who actually jigs about and the decorated Easter Cat (I bought the doggy the other day !) Low prim and utterly charming .

Easter Goodies - FREE dress

For a more formal look, I spotted this gown on the market place , its free and so feminine. Looks equally good with or without the flexified bit on the bottom. Sharodies Design has quite a few fetching outfits so take a look at the store while you’re getting your mitts on this.

Springy Fashion

coldLogic sparrow NEW!

I’ve had time to rummage through the coldLogic Spring release, gosh I flat-out refuse to choose a favourite ! I’ve been coo’ing and ooOOoo’ing my way through each piece, and my inventory is now officially declared dead, it’s positively bulging with lovelies. This is “sparrow”, so nautical and cheerful, it made me smile just wearing it. There are so many colour choices in this, and if you get a quantum pack even more ways to wear it all ! You see, the thing issss…the jacket and dress can be mixed and matched over and over and over again. If you had the “esch” outfit (I haven’t actually tried this yet so !) I bet you could mingle in the plain esch jacket with the sparrow dresses? I’m going to try that out later. Lovely muted print on the dress, subtle and effective, teamed with the bold sailor stripes it’s a scene stealer.

coldLogic NEW - Boudoir Spring picnic set - gacha 50L

 

Now, more of those darling baggy styled pants. You’ll be seeing a lot of these, because I can’t stop wearing them. They seem to go with every top in the universe! I’ve worn them with flats, heels and bare feet, it all works. The pants are called “odea” and there are some really sweet neutral colours to snap up. The blouse, which can be glam or casual is “pruit”. Superb folds of material fall gently downwards, just perfect for a warm Spring day. I got all juicy and went with this deeeelish pineapple shade ! I treated myself (finally) to this Bramley bicycle from {what next}, Id had my eye on it for simply ages. I bought the singlepringle poses version, but you can also get one with both single and couple animations. Colour change too! The picnic rug was a spur of the moment gacha spend, I was mooching at Boudoir and came across the machine, could I pass it by? Not on your nelly !

Boudoir picnic set, coldLogic NEW! Whatnext  Bramley Bicycle

I was so pleased to win the rug, it’s totally adorable, only 50L a pop. So much detail and some really sooper poses for you and three friends. Doesn’t the hamper look inviting?

coldLogic  NEW! Pure Poison sandals NEW!

Last up for today, the coldLogic “odea” pants with the “catlin” short-sleeved sweater. Such an easy combination to wear and yet very stylish. I’ve been really impressed with the shoe offerings from Pure Poison lately, picked up a few pairs when I was at The Arcade event. Popped over to take a gander at their mainstore and fell in want with these flat sandals. They are for Slink flat feet btw, which you need to buy separately. If you join the Pure Poison group (free to join) you can buy these “Jolie” flats for just 159L, a great saving on the usual price of 199L.  You also get treated to a group gift each Monday and outside the store are stacks of group gifts to take to welcome you.

How not to do it.

At the moment on the Marketplace there are OODLES and OODLES of freebie, dollarbies and cheapies.  Some good some bad and some FFS! Resist the temptation to bombard your SL Love with too many of these but of course I’ve found some real goodies of which I will put the Marketplace link for them at the end but of course I will have missed so many things so if you’ve never tried out the Marketplace then this is a good time to try.

Burst

OK so I did have fun rezzing a whole load of bright and gaudy items.

Burst2

I’ve had this Wedding dress almost as long as I’ve been SLing and it has become a bit of tradition that at Valentine I pop it on and a whole lot of bloody mess (more than you can see here) and I clutch a bloody heart and walk around making weeping noises what is news is the ugly, beautiful, messy hair which comes from one of my FAV shop in SL Boudoir.  200 and only the 1 colour but for that sexy manic look it’s perfect.

DOH just as I was about to click “publish” I remembered this.  A sweet and simple little bra and panties set, what a shame that it can’t be sent as a gift because this maybe an old Valentines gift but it comes from Insolence and they just make real quality pretties.

Bad girls! (freebies).

Looks like both Faith and I have been RL busy busy busy so I thought I would get up these super lovely hunt items from one of my all time fav shops in SL, Boudoir as quickly as I can.

HeadPrecious Restless  has a lovely and really really hard hunt going on at the moment, a total of 6 Christmas baubles placed around her shop and land and they’re HARD to find! even worse she’s moving them each day OMG EVIL WOMAN!  However when you do find them you are so grateful and she has not just her big shop but outside she has the most amazing garden items.  In fact check this out.

flowersI didn’t take this photo to blog I took it just to see how lovely her plants looked and maybe use it as a background on my comp but this is just an example of some of the ethereal loveliest items.  The dandelions are actually really large and stunning.  Lots of wintery, sparkling grasses and bushes not free but now I’ve got some money to spend I’m going to be splashing out and treating myself to some for our sim.

rudolp

Lucky me because I found a total of 3 of the items, the primtastic Christmas wreath headdress and poor Rudolph’s head.  I also got an amazing wearable of a laidened down sleigh and thank goodness that is a wearable because I rezzed it and it ate ALL of our remaining prims on our sim! Thats how much detail in it but fortunately poor Rudolph is only 12 prims so he can go onto anyone’s wall.  The other items which I am determined to find are a pressie strewn Christmas sofa, a pile of pressies that you carry and a full sized AV snow globe prop.  If you get desperate then you can actually also buy these but I’m going to hunt those suckers down.

So check back soon as I have a load of stuff just waiting to be blogged and now that the RL work rush is calming down I can start to work thought my blogg folder.

PS I do believe you have to join the Boudoir Group, could be wrong, but it is free to join.  Also if you can’t get inworld just yet check out her Marketplace shop and prepare to be wowed.
