Faith is such a Dog(Lover that is, lol)!

NO freebies in this post.

I’ve been waiting for the “Rally to the rescue” event to start and it’s started.  I personally am not a dog person, they like to lick their nuts too much and drool.  But if I see a cat anywhere I cannot resist them, I am that woman stood in the middle of the street trying to convince a cat to come over for a tickle..even though I have 2 of them at home I cannot walk past a cat!

When we lost one of our precious moggies we decided to adopt and if you have the time, patience and a never-ending supply of Dreamies, then taking in an older cat can be unbelievably rewarding and the scars do fade over time.

This post isn’t about my Pussy addiction, insert dirty snigger here, but for stinky ball licking mutts.  A pretty standard event ie stalls and a selection of whats for sale either the full amount or part of the sale money is donated.  Some of the more well-known shops are involved in this event and so there was plenty of temptation but in the end, I just threw some money into the tip jar, or rather at the Doggie and TPed home feeling smug.

So pop over check it out, even if it’s just a few Lindens think about donating, trust me it will make you feel smug as well.

PS.  As I’m typing I’m trapped under my old moggy, my bladder is bursting and my stomach is screaming for food and yet all I can think is it’s OK to pee myself and I should be on a diet in any case…I’m such a lost cause.

Get Hairy.(Hair Fair & Free Mina).

First the freebie, btw ignore my top as it wasn’t a freebie which is a shame.

But at least you can score this fab free hair from Mina’s shop/stall at the Hair Fair event.

UPDATE.  The “Lily” hair I’m wearing is the one I already own but when I went over to Mina’s shop at this event I spotted that this hair comes not just with a MASSIVE colour Hud but the colour are jaw-dropping so of course I grabbed it but the shade I’m wearing is not one of them.

You may have spotted this hair “Annie” in my past couple of pictures.  When I get a new Mina hair-do I like to wear it for a while just to work out what I think about it and I’ve thought about it and I LOVE IT! But believe it or not this hair and the one in the picture underneath is the SAME HAIR and it’s not just because of the different hair colour.
Annie comes with a “Style Hud” which allows you to change the fringe(bangs) from a sharp cut to the softer style PLUS the back of this hair is done in a French Pleat.  In the picture, I’m wearing the larger more pronounced french pleat so you can see it more as the other version is smaller and smooth against the head.  You will see what I mean if you try the demo out for yourself.  Although I’ve chosen 2 of the most unusual colours when worn in a classic brown, blonde shade this is an elegant updo but this blonde/ginger shade to me is just so good!  Mina does the best ginger hair shades in SL, she calls them “reds” though.

Again look at this shade and whats even better is how it brings out all the work that has been put into the details of this hair.

There is another hair in the Mina shop at this event and yes I have forgotten what that’s called but I do remember that both of these hairs are priced at only 300Lds which is now a standard price BUT what’s not standard is that each colour pack is a massive 30, yes THIRTY shades!  So in the brown pack, you get everything from a light brown to the darkest, the same can be said for the blondes etc.  Years ago before Huds were around I bought a Fat Pack from a shop, long gone now, and I had about 300 shades to choose from which sounds fab but 80% of those shades so almost identical! that’s not the case with Mina’s shade packs.

As Faith has said this for once seems to be a lag-free event and with freebies to be had a nice way to kill some RL time in SL but also think about buying something because a lot of these shops inc Mina’s are donating a percentage to a worthy cause called “Wigs for Kids” which I should imagine we have all heard of.

UPDATE.  I’ll put the link to the blog which shows you all that is for sale, I don’t know if it’s showing you any of the gifts though, it will save you so much time.

Lots and lots of sweet sugar.(10Ld, 20Ld and some freebies).

I went to the “Spoonful of Sugar event” and also into full spendy mode.  This event is to raise money for a charity I should imagine we all know and that’s Doctors without Borders.  A truly worthy cause so if you have Lindens to spend then it’s time and trust me there is plenty of things to spend Lindens on and I did!

But now for the bargains.

So there are lots of shops with lots of temptation and lots of bowls of sugar set out for us.  These sugar bowls are priced at 10 or 20Lds and contain this n that and in the Raindale sugar bowl is everything you can see in these 2 pictures.

I can’t remember how much I paid for these but again it was either 10 or 20Lds which is just a piddling amount. Everything inc the garden swing is low primmed.

There is a total of 5 sims and although I’m showing you decor items there are many shops for clothes, shoes etc.  There are also some freebies as I did spot them in a few shops but not many as of course they want us to spend and I want to buy lol.

PLUS if you’re a social butterfly there are events going on and I sat for a while as a fashion show was being held and it was nice to see so many other AV’s just taking a moment of their time to just sit and join in.

Worth the Lindens, Worthy cause.(Mention of Freebies).

I popped over to Heels to snag something, sadly that deal was over, but as soon as I TP into the shop you cannot help but see the notices about how every linden spent in this shop goes towards a charity called “Care and Hope Centre” which raises the awareness of domestic abuse and I won’t preach but all I can say is Thank God that’s not something I’ve ever had to deal with and so how could I not spend some Lindens and at 99Lds for some boots that I can really use a bargain for a great cause.

Gonna be honest here and say there is breakthrough at the top cuff of the boot and I had to lighten the picture as the one I took was too dark to show off the details.  These are for SLink fits but you get the L, M, S & XS fits but there is a demo for you to try so you can see the texture and fits before you decide if you want them.

OH, I’ve just remembered I could, of course, have worn the L size but I’d rather have a snugger fit as the breakthough is only a small thing. PLUS I forgot to pick the Freebies up, 3 of them for 3 different groups so it’s worth a pop over even if you don’t want these boots.

Reminder!

I’ve managed to get myself over to the Legendaire shop and although they’ve upgraded their shop I was right and there is a wall of GG’s and of course I grabbed all of the shoes because I am greedy and needy and shameless.  There is also a Valentines hunt going on and the large heart shaped boxes are scattered around the shop.  They are priced, as far as I could tell, at 10Lds and if it wasn’t for the fact I’m outta time I would have picked a couple of them up just to get some idea of what’s inside.

So be quick as the Free for the mo group should be finishing sometime today.

Feed A Smile!

feed-a-smile-event

Tomorrow you have the chance to really make a difference – and feed those smiles!  MichaelJ Rossini and Valeri Carissa run an event per month, the charities they support through these events are Feed a smile, Relay for Life and Making Strides. An event will be run on the 17th Feb (that’s tomorrow?) to raise money for Feed A Smile. Last month I spoke to Michael about their fund-raising, I admit I am always a little hesitant to get involved due to occurrences with other charities that didn’t sit well with me.

However, when I asked Michael about receipts and how the cash got to the charity , he gave me the above photo. Look carefully at the writing on the black board – got it? – doesn’t get much clearer than that huh?!

So how does the cash get raised? Simple really – you rock up to the event and have a GREAT time – seriously its that easy. Donation boxes are all around (these go direct to the nominated charity btw) The party is truly global, in the sense that something is happening throughout the time zones – you wont miss out I promise. Web site is listed below, please check it out for more info.

deets:

“As well as providing private and public events we also pride ourselves on the charity fundraising events we organize.

We aim to have a charity event every month, and the charities we support are Feed a Smile, Relay for Life and Making Strides

To date, we have raised over 190k for these charities

Our success is largely down to the quality of our entertainers – we use only the very best. Our venue is totally redesigned for each event by a sl award nominated designer

Everyone involved in our events donates their time free of charge, and every penny we raise goes directly to the charity concerned.”

Yes Miss.

I popped into Junbug to see if there was a tasty new GG out (Group is not free to join) and whaaa nope.  No new group gift but I spotted this and decided that it was so worth splashing the cash.

Kashka (juno.mantel) is the owner of Junbug and Junbug is one of only a handful of SL shops where I buy for my own personal use.  Her amazing designs make me feel like…

http://corinawrites.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/tumblr_lxryj8uh0d1r4filmo4_250.gif

I wear her clothes in SL just to feel like Amy. Lush fabrics, stunning gowns and seductive lingerie, some RP outfits and even everyday wear but all make you stand out from the crowd.  There are only a few shops in SL where when you’re wearing their clothes everyone knows where you got them from the designs and texturing are that uniqu.

This dress is a special because a massive 100% of what you pay goes towards a charity called “doitinadress” and I will pop the link at the bottom but don’t panic if you’re on a limited budget because you have 4 price options, 250, 300, 350 or 400Lds and as I said ALL of the money goes towards this well deserving charity.  I chose the blue even though it’s my least fav colour because it’s not often I come across something in blue that I love and tbh I had stood there so long dithering over which colour to pick I think everyone else must have thought I had crashed.

Although she occasionally has a special offer out such as a FLF she doesn’t do it too often so RUSH over because if you turn left into that side of her shop she actually has a full outfit on offer for only a token 30Lds.  I have tried again and again to get a picture of it but SL seems to have conspired against me today and I’ve failed to take any pictures of it but again at 30Lds and this is shop quality I’m sure you can afford to try it out.
