The struggle is real.

As yet no freebies but I want you to go here and then…..

…there.

I was LM hopping and came across a very interesting building and discovered it comes from a shop called No Signal so I TPed over and yup there it is but sadly it’s a Gacha Rare win and 2 attempts later I have a drinks dispenser and a pile of comics and no building.

No Signal shares the same sim as a shop called Vibes and although neither of these shops has a gift for us, damned meanies, they do have some really nice and interesting items. I was almost tempted…then I remembered my Gacha “wins” lol.

I also want to show you the sim these 2 shop share.  The shops themselves are on 2 separate heart-shaped islands, you just walk across the water to get from one to another but the windlight and landscaping of them just make for a great photo opportunity.  I just pointed and clicked and so again even if you don’t think you I assure you can take beautiful pictures here. Plus you may also cave into temptation and treat yourself.

Seriously SL!!!(Bargain).

I’ve just splurged my last 25Lds only to find I’m gonna have to splurge some more because one of our regular readers has just dropped the bomb that Trompe Loeil is having a blinking 50% SALE!  Seriously how’d I miss that…ok I know it’s because I get sent so many notices/notes etc things often slip me by which is why I truly appreciate it when people give me the heads up about something esp when it’s as good as this.  Have to say the sim is, of course, PACKED to the rafters and even worse the countdown started yesterday which means today is the LAST day to squeeze in!

So basically as I was chucking stuff out I checked out the NN Marketplace shop to see if this still had this and they do and since my copy has been eaten by my invent I just bought it.

It’s a massive spooky skybox and perfect for those who are planning a Halloween partay, me? I just open my front door and throw some sweets are the trick or treaters and tell them to “bog off” but having said that I do bake Pumpkin pies cos I love em.

Back to the build.

Although these pictures have a frame on them I haven’t edited the pictures and even in my sims Nams setting you can see they’re pretty atmospheric so if you change your windlight settings I think you will get some very interesting effects.

Comes in a rezzer or you can rez it in edit mode and there are a few extra spooky ghosts you can have flying around.  For some reason the rezzer wouldn’t derezz it, the rezzer is in the well, but although this is a really big skybox it’s all in big chunks so only took a few clicks to pack it all away.  That also means that if there are some bits of it you don’t like then you can remove or move them.  The prim count is just over 100 but this skybox is a perfect setting for a Halloween party or if your incline to the spooky side of SL a nice little home.

PS I will be stripping right down to my Alpha and TPing as soon as I can to Tromphe.

Irresistible.(Freebies).

Something went all screwy with these pictures but I won’t say what it was until the end of this post.

Vanity shot as you can’t really see what I’m wearing but I found this swing and beach and just thought this was such a nice shot so here it is LOL.

OK, so the more I wore this very tropical bathing suit the more I kept thinking I’ve either blogged this before or at least had it in my invent to blog but never got around to it so I’m just not sure esp as this come comes with so many appliers for the main costume and the flowers and ribbons both come with a 3 colour option in a Hud.  So if this is a reblog I’m still not sorry.

The dress comes from the same shop but a different group and I promise you it is the same beach.

With this dress you get 2 colours the green I’m wearing and a blood red colour and 2 colour options for those amazing flowers.  You can remove them or wear as separates and even with other outfits is you wanted to.  Although this dress didn’t have the SLink size it had more than enough fits for me to find one.

If these aren’t what you’re looking for I bet in the “irrISIble” shop you will find something because I went “Oooo” quite a few times as I was walking around.  This is a costume shop with OTT outfits for both men and women, stunning and outlandish gowns designed to have people zooming in on you.  Not cheap but I think that when you see the work which has gone into designing these outfits you will understand why they come with a price tag and see it’s not unreasonable at all.  Also if you walk to the back of the shop you will see, sorry but I’m gonna have to say “stunning” again but there are skyboxes and decor items which are very Halloweeny, Autumnal etc.  When I go back I will be using the TP to go the demos which have been rezzed and I’m hoping I don’t get tempted into spending Lindens.

OK so whassup with the pictures, somehow in just the relatively short time I was on the sim taking my picutes without me even noticing the sim changed settings from night to day.  It would have actually worked out very well if I was wearing the dress in the “evening” setting and the bathing suit in the “daylight” but it didn’t happen that way.

So that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

PS Update because I have checked out the demo builds and decor items you wil find at the back of the shop and I swear if you’re holding a Halloween or Autumn party or just like to live that lifestyle then you need to check these out.

IrrISISible (the gifts are on the inside wall to your right when you walk in).

My meanness has cost me a lot of money!(Freebies).

This morning I joined 2 paid for groups to snag the GG’s only to find the GG’s were basically useless to me.  I don’t mind the loss of Lindens I just wish they made it clearer what the gift contained so people like me didn’t take a risk that the gift is something they can use.

Never mind at least I knew I had the SaNaRae event to go to and I also knew that this event is packed with CAKE!   Birthday cake to be exact and that means pressies for all.

This is me scratching my head because sadly for my bank account not only does this place have a lot of gifts it also has a lot of temptation and YES I bought that build as well as taking a few gambles on Gacha’s and then after I’d managed to get all the freebies and I was going to TP to the demo area I CRASHED.

I will spend a very nice hour or so later, unpacking and probably binning a lot as I can see there is a lot of jewelry and wearables etc and I don’t wear them but since this is a big event with big SL shops I know that even though I don’t wear them if you do then you will be chuffed.  Plus of course a lot of the gifts aren’t accessories and so I can’t wait to see what else there is.  Till I get back inworld I’m putting this post out so you can check it out for yourself and catch it at a quiet time.

PS.  Of course, Faith might just have more free time today so you never know she might be showing you the goodies herself.

Need inspiration then? “Shop Your Heart Out”

Just a random post because so far everything I’ve found up to now has been a big fat nope so I decided to quit for the day and just meander SL which led me to the  “Shop Your Heart Out Event” which I believe ends on the 14th which is pretty understandable as oodles of the item in this event are very romantic inspired.  So many big named shops here, inc Mina but more about that later but sadly for me NO Freebies! What! aww even with all those gift boxes are just props! What meanies!

xxxrandomuse

But they have redeemed themselves as this is a discount event and so far I’ve scored myself some decor items and a whole build for super prices, cheap enough to make my cold heart sing for sure.

I did see in some shops that you can buy the items as a “gift” option so you can buy now to send it to your loved one on the Big Day or if the item you have your eye on doesn’t have that option then bring your loved one for a shopping trip.  There is enough discounts here for those on a limited budget to be able to treat the one they love the most, in my case it’s ME cos I’ve bought the items for myself LOL.

As for the Mina shop I’ve been sneaky and put the LM for that as the starting off point, the Gizem hair is one of my fav, a long thick single plait hanging down the front.  Simply stunning and I’ve now realised that the last Mina hair I did which I thought was the longest she has made isn’t really right as Gizem is just as long and with that thick natural looking plait it’s unique.  The prices for the Mina’s hair is 240LD which is discounted as she did recently put her prices up a little bit but this discounted one, as well as her new ones, also come with the superb 10 colur Hud options so you’re only paying a little more for a lot more colour.

Pose with me, inc a Freebie of sorts.

Not everyone wants to own a sim or a home in SL, trust me it’s not as expensive as you think and if you find a like minded friend or friends to share the tier fee it’s cheaper than drinking, smoking or any other RL addiction you may have.  Even so with a whole sim to play with I keep a folder of Landmarks to lovely places to preen and pose in and I found this place last night.

It’s called “The Beguiled  Art Gallery and Studio” and you not only have a massive house packed with prebuilt room/scenarios/scenery to pose in but you have the WHOLE sim to play in which is landscaped for a poseurs delight.

xxxsim-use

Inside the building is everything from this cute ice cream parlour to a saucy bedroom.

xxxsimuse2

This is the staircase to the windows where you can show off your “wares”!

It’s rare to find builds that come not only packed with poses but poses that actually work!  So I only used the inbuilt poses and deliberately took these in my Nams setting with no editing so you can see that anyone with even the most basic of camera skills can make great pictures, or at least a pretty decent one, now imagine these same pictures with a bit of wind light fun or editing. PS Every menu comes with an adjust menu as well.

xxxsimuse3

ALL of this is FREE for anyone to use you don’t even need to join a group.  As if the great props “n” poses “n” a whole sim to play in wasn’t enough you CAN REZZ!  Yes, you have rezzing permission which is rare to find and that means if there is a pose ball you have or a prop you would like to use then you can.

I know that readers of this blog don’t need to be told this but for those who do DO NOT ABUSE the sim owners generosity, I don’t know if this is an “adult” sim but no effing with a friend or be a prim wh*re,  and please pack your stuff up! Again I know our lot don’t need to be told this but when Faith and I ran rental sims trust me the nicest of people can get a little bit “forgetful” with their prim count, messes, and sim rules.

I did spot a tip jar and I will be popping a couple of hundred Lindens in there because I can see myself using this sim often.  Don’t worry if you can’t just a few Lindens goes a long way to saying Thanks esp when someone or some people have gone out of their way to

As for the Freebie, just before I TPed over to this sim there was a shout out in the Cynful group that “Z” was on the Lucky Board so a quick TP and I snagged this skin tight sexy dress.  The Group Gift is one I’ve done but it’s still there and 100% sexy, the walls of Lucky Boards are 2 rooms behind the entrance, and the entrance is where you find the Group Gift, just open your Mini Map and follow all the dots as the LB wins are shop quality and varied and you always find lots of AVs stood there which means the change in initials is pretty quick.

Lazy Sale Day.

Yesss I know I’m wearing the same hair but I had decided to quickly pop over to the ChiMia 50% discount sale, I’m not sure how long it’s been on or how long it has left to go, and because I didn’t expect to be taking any pictures and RL was calling me and I’m not even sure what I’m going to treat my home to so till now I’ve just taken a few snaps of whats on offer.

XXXChifire

I’m not buying this but only because I already own too many fires but damn I’m so tempted.  This one stands out because the fire is almost roaring out of it.  I changed the sim setting to my Nams but I did spot that in a darker setting it GLOWS! and as I’m typing this I’m almost talking myself in grabbing it when I LM grab.

XXXChifire2

This free standing log burner is another thing I’m not going to buy but damn it at I believe 50Lds and 3 prims I am going to check my invent and if I already have something similar then I won’t be buying it either but if I don’t then this is mine!

XXXChifire3

Nope not buying this either even though it has some cute poses in it some for women, men and unisexed.  I had posed hopped on a few items and these good poses seem to be in all of them.

XXXChifire5

Yup you’re right another item I’m not buying till I’ve invent checked.

XXXChifire4

This is the last thing I’m not buying LOL.

I WILL be treating my home to something from this place and if I’m extra lucky it might just be one of the Lucky Chair wins there.  I’ve left myself at the  ChiMia shop so when I rezz back inworld I can spend a little bit more time looking around as I can’t imagine a nicer way to kill a little SL and RL time in a shop with some quality home decor items a small selection of socks n nail and a little bit of this n that all in a nice compact shopping section.  I did buy what I think is a couples pose, holding coffee cups, for only 1lds but I had to log off before I could check that out.

To make it easy then there is a cute TP figure, I think it’s a cat, for you to TP directly to the different departments.

CAUTION! OK I did notice that the door dressing table in my last piccie has 2 prices, the price tag on the door is full price BUT you can just about see the white notice board above it and that is set to the discounted price of 75Lds.  This is probably just one of those little glitches/oversights that happen in all lives but I’d recommend you check both price tags and boards to make sure you’re paying the lower price.
