Happy Hippy (Sub Gift/Group Free Gift)

As someone who is always short on Group Space I for one am always grateful when a shop sets out a gift not just for its group members but will automatically send it out to all its “sub slappers”.  I’m not sure if there is any benefits to joining the group ie a group discount but you will certainly be kept up to date on New stuff and also maybe events, special discounts, sales etc or like me slap that sub board and just sit and wait for those sub/group gifts to be automatically sent out to you and check out this little beauty.

XXXHippy

Called Lupe a fringed boho/hippy cardigan/top combo and it’s so good, such good quality and things like this are always a lovely surprise when you least expect it.

So of course when I LM’ed grabbed I checked out The Beautiful Ones, the sub gifts often come through labelled as being from “TBO” so if you do sub or join then don’t fret if you get a parcel sent to you from “TBO” but don’t panic if you reject it just TP to the shop and you can simple have it resent.

One of the best things about sub/group gifts is it’s a prompt to remind you to pay a visit which is exactly what I did when I went to LM grab and I have to admit that I thought “TBO” was a “tits n ass” sort of clothing shop but I’d gotten it mixed up with another shop so again sending out samples of your wares is pretty beneficial.  A lot of good outfits from basics to gowns but the one thing that makes them stand out and are more tempting is that a lot if not all of the items here come either has full outfits or with colour huds as standard which makes your Lindens go further and of course I did price check and it’s very reasonably priced so once you’ve snatched this great gift check out the rest because we all love top quality clothing in fat packs.

Quelle surprise!

I thought this freebie was going to be a “vest” and again I almost didn’t unpack it, what a fool I would have been.

vest

Since in my previous post I managed to recolour the clothes I decided to keep this post KISS  (keep it simple stupid) and just use my sim setting and I’ve even used one of my Saintly poses LOL.

The “vest” has turned out to be this dress/cardi combo.  Sadly my arm position is covering up the simple thin wrapped around belt.  It comes from Wicked but even though the full priced ones are 349Lds this one is a single Dollar as it’s one of the prizes in the WOMENStuff Hunt.  There is another hunt item to be found and sorry I was so rushed that I’ve forgotten what that hunt is called however the details are in the entrance and the prize is easy enough to find.  I did try them on and they’re a pair of shoe/boots with an unusual “galaxy” texturing.  Actually although from the description might put you off I did think they were pretty nifty and if you don’t like that particular texturing the same styles shoes are for sale in the shop at full priced but with a whole range of shoe colours.

The scarf/snood which is what it’s called in the shop is a lovely freebie from a shop called League which I’ve never seen before.  You actually get 3 designs in the pack and each has 2 attach options.  Sadly my SL time is short so I’ve not been able to have a good scout around but I’ve spotted some Sheepskin gloves not far from where I am standing so I’m leaving my AV here and when I relog into SL I’m snagging myself a pair of them and then having a good look around.

RL is screaming for me so I hope everyone has a good day.

Three into One

ArisAris NEW! HUD inc. with Black & Silver options 249L Just had to share this new release from ArisAris with you. Its fresh off the press and so very pretty. This is “Sinuous” and you actually get three colours via the HUD for just 249L , bargain huh?! Whats even more interesting is that you can colour each part individually, so you can mix up the three colours if you wish. You get this beige/cream version, plus silver-grey and a lush black. I tried various combo’s of all three and they really mingle well. I am a big fan of cardigans in real life so this is my outfit of the weekend – thanks Ariadna ❤ (forgot to mention that Im wearing this over my Slink Physique body – fits perfectly!)

At last!

Was just about to log off when Renata Dragovar sent this out, called Fernanda and I knew that this would be such an easy picture to do and a sweet Sunday treat I remained inworld just to take the piccie so in the morning I could enjoy my morning coffee and do this post.

It’s just a simple skirt top/combo but it’s a prime example of an RD Style’s Group Gift. If you look closely you can see that the top has a slightly tucked in look to it and of course great shading and detailing on the texturing.

I have a folder of stuff from here because there are so many hunt, cheapies, freebies and in some cases paid for outfits that because you get the whole look and at such reasonable prices even I can’t resist.

flmstockreal

As almost standard with RD Styles  you get more than just the outfit you get a whole look which means that these SLink wedge shoes come with the outfit.  You do need SLink med feet for these shoes and since they don’t come with a resizer then although my xs size feet fit perfectly you may have issues but then again a simple edit of your shape and problem solved.  Skirt can be worn without the top and so really 3 items of clothing in one pack and of course as I’ve said this is a Group Gift.

There is a Marketplace shop which but if you don’t drop into her shop then you will miss out on all the Dollarbies, 2Lds (top floor), old Group Gifts (mezzanine level) etc and in fact one of my all time fav shorts come from here and cost only a single Linden but since I’ve posted that piccie twice I can’t really post it again.   So go into the inworld shop walk into the back room with the discounts and gifts are hidden once you’ve checked them out then have a really good Sunday hunting session.

Updated. This is the problem when you’re in the group you forget if it was free or not so it turns out to join IS 50Lds but remember not only do you get the shoes, skirt and top there is also a whole load of old GG’s on the Mezzanine level for you to grab.

New stuff !

 

Somnia NEW !

I’m re-energised after a visit from my Daddy, we had lunch together and I made his favourite sammiches (Tuna & mayo all frothed up!) He bought some rather sugary buns for dessert – he always forgets I’m a diabetic bless him. Anywayyyyy now I’m stuffed with food I’m ready to rock & roll…Somnia is fast becoming one of my fav go-to-stores for mesh. The releases are many but never losing quality. Above I’m showing the brand spankin new “Nyitia” belted mini skirt, fabbo thick belt to show off your slinky snake hips and really perfect to wear with a whole load of Somnia’s sweaters and tee’s. NINE colours in the pack for only 200L, thats uhm *brain fade*..erm..22L per skirt ! The sweater is also new and comes in a pack of nine tones..its called “pixel heart”, I thought the stark white really made the red skirt POP .

Somnia

Now, pro-tip…get this amazing cardi & tank set, you wont regret it…like e.v.e.r. Its called “Boffle”, you get a cardigan and an undershirt in each of the nine tones. You can’t wear the cardi as a piece on its own but what you CAN do, is mix and match up the colours. Endless variations ! I just adore the thick chunky knit of the cardigan, the under shirt is self striped and fits like a glove, big buttons complete the look, I LOVE this set! My trousers are also a new item “Zhevios” is the name, they go SO well with the Boffle set, but are also a fantastic stand alone item. Thanks Sanura ❤

Horror & Fashion

CIRCA & Pinkcherry NEW!

Yehyehyeh,…who says you can’t do horror and glamour together?! I don’t really get into Halloween, for me it’s not a very English tradition, however I am rather fond of a good cemetary…weird I know but I find them a fantastic source of social history and ever-so peaceful. Sooo here I am, visiting the grave of some long-lost relative. The open grave scene is by CIRCA, and blimey its pretty damm good. With its sleek raven perched on the spade, slightly open coffin and brill headstone, it’s a winner for setting an atmosphere. This can be found, along with other spooktastic items at the Horrorfest Event that runs until the Nov 8th. If you peek really really closely, you might see my new outfit from PinkCherry…

PinkCherry pencil skirt dress - pesca shawl - FREE D!va hat with fur pompoms

If like me your eyes aren’t that good here it is ! Simply divine, the pencil dress, split up the thigh with a saucy leopard print insert, I love it heaps. My shawl is from pesca, I don’t recall what event I snapped it up at but it is available in the mainstore now, comes in a few pretty tones and at just 85L its a steal. My hat is a group gift at D!va, still there, group join is free also. Its got sooo many options for colour and furry bits your head will spin !

PinkCherry knitted cardigan & boot cut pants outfit NEW!

Another new release from PinkCherry is this knitted cardigan set, gawd I lurve this, it’s SO moi. Beautifully styled cardi / jacket sits on top of a bootleg cut pair of pants. The buckle on the jacket is especially lovely, as is the texture on the pants. (This and the pencil dress) does come in other colours, go see go see !

Pinkcherry knitted cardigan outfit

Here is a long shot so you can see the trousers a little more, love the shape of hem, and it sits so easily over boots yay!

Light Posting

Cornered L

You know what it’s like when you see something you love in a shop but it’s part of the decor and not for sale? These lights were exactly that.  Spotted these lights in Toki-Doki and I kept on popping back to check out for new stuff and to see if these lights were ever put up for sale and Woo Hoo there they are.  225Lds and 9 Prims in total.  That is 9 assorted lamps hanging down from a beam for only 9 prims and you have a choice of 2 sizes the one shown, smaller and a bigger one..  They’re not scripted so sadly they don’t light up but never the less a great look for your home.

Talk about coincidence because just as I’m about to post this Maya Toki-Doki (maya.levane owner of Toki-Doki) sends out her first notice in quite a few months. Seems like a lot of us she’s had comp issues but now she is back and her first group gift is out.  If I remember correctly you do have to pay to join this group but I cannot remember how much as I’ve been in the group for so long now.  So it’s a welcome return and lets hope for lots and lots of new designs.

I Love Toki Doki
