I’ve just scratched it! (Freebie).

The leggings are the only freebie I’m referring to in this post.  Sadly the rest of the outfit is made up of old freebies, sorry I did check and they’re not available anymore. The hair, of course, is a Mina’s and it’s the newest one with that super beanie and as it happens one of the beanie texture is a fine match for these leggings.

I went to the “Holiday Shopping” event and it’s BIG in fact I think this whole event covers 3 sims.

Each shop at this event has not just a gift for us but lots of juicy bargains, I almost caved in and bought some Lindens to spend! These are the “alaskametro” gift but it was the really pretty sparkling lipstick I was being tempted by so I picked up the demo just to check it out…yeah right..but you actually get a wearable demo so that was a lovely little extra.  The leggings come with 6 different colours and you get the SLink and Omega Appliers plus a nice touch is system layer leggings.  I know that most of us victims of fashions couldn’t imagine living their SL lives without mesh but funnily enough over the past few days I’ve seen a lot of non-mesh AVs and not even noobs but as I always say “it’s your SL so you do you boo”.

As I said this is a massive 3 sim event and I’ve only scratched the surface but in the few shops I’ve visited I’ve added more to my “keepers” pile and some not but only because they’re not my fit.  The LM will take you close to the shops I’ve already done and I will leave the rest up to you.

PS. The funny thing about this photo is the sweater I’m wearing doesn’t have a snowflake pattern on it that’s just a perfectly timed picture and a falling snowflake.

I’m having a moment here! (Free Mina hair!)

What! A free Mina and I had noooo idea!  I was so happy I whipped out my sparker lol.

I don’t even already own “Mabel” this is completely new to me and the whole Mina range so this isn’t just one of her stock hairs reduced to zero and set out as a gift this is a brand new style! Not only that but you get 15 shades in the hud which is pretty generous of her.

I’d finally managed to get over to FaMESHed where Mina has her newest hair, Sira which is a hair with a beanie and a styling hud, but it was still so busy all I could do was start grabbing the gifts under the Christmas tree and as soon as I’d grabbed the one with this Mina gift I had to stop and TP home and I am so happy with it.

Mabel, as I said, is a brand new style, even though Mina has a range of ponytailed/pigtailed hairs the addition of a retro raised crown gives this hair a unique slant.  I’d buy it, I used to buy Mina hair before I was lucky enough to be taken on as a blogger for her shop and if I wasn’t a blogger I wouldn’t go to her shop anymore because it would be too hard to walk away without buying something and I would spend way too much! A girl has her Tier fee to think about lol.

Anyhow what a lovely surprise and a generous gift is to be found at the FaMESHed event but if you would like to try out the new hair, Sira, then I’ve put the LM to Mina’s main shop as the demo is there.  If you’re interested then Sira cost, for a hud that gives you styling options, fab beanie textures and massive 30 shade palettes, only 300Lds!

PS.  I didn’t forget and today’s !g0 Advent gift is a beanie hat/hair.  I’ve not taken any pictures but make sure you pop over for yourself.

Easing into the day.(Freebies & Advent).

Todays !g0 Advent gift is the skirt, lots of fits and 50Lds to join the !g0 group.

The top I mentioned in my last post, it’s one of the freebies from the Okinawa Winter Event, lots of fits and I think there were 3 colours in the hud.

BUT I want to do a special mention to my Yoyo, BEST AO EVER! This is the SEmotion gift under the Christmas tree at The Arcade Event.  We all know that when it comes to movements such as drinking coffee, smoking a cig etc it still leaves a lot to be desired but you get 3 motions with this yoyo and OMG even the most intricate one where you flip and grab it is perfect! So realistic I TPed over to the SEmotion shop to check out their AOs as I’ve been using the same AO for about…..oh dear 10 years maybe.  I didn’t buy any, the only reason I didn’t is my AO is understated.  The animations are slight and natural and that’s how I like it so although I appreciated the work that has gone into creating the AO’s at SEmotion I will be sticking to my old one but I will put the link for you to the SEmotion shop.

UPDATE. Try the SEmotion AOs but don’t buy yet as I’ve just popped to the shop I bought my AO from, all those years ago, and I’m finally going to update my AO so when I come back with more freebies I will give you the LM for that shop as not only do I think their AOs are excellent you can buy a fully loaded AO for only 200-300Lds or individual poses for just 10Lds….so don’t go spending any Lindens before you’ve tried both shops.

All I can give you is the LM.(Freebies).

When did SL become classy because yet again another very Christmassy dress which is both classy and classic?

I will suggest you delay going over for a few days as basically it was lag Hell!  So all I can tell you is that there is a Christmas Tree and under it is pressies for ALL and the first few I opened were ok, Christmas baubles, and then I opened this one from the shop called TBO (The Beautiful Ones) and it is and I am lol.

A simple dress with gorgeous colour/texturing and a shop quality finish! Lots and lots of fits YASSS that means even one for me.

UPDATE.  It was a bit calmer when I went back to LM grab so I grabbed some more.  Not everything is free but cheap enough.

A Christmas Classic.(Freebies).

The “Candy Lane Christmas Market” has literally just opened but I think it’s not fully stocked yet, or my computer was on a go slow as it sometimes seems to do that, so go now for this super freebie and earmark it for a return visit.

I had literally just dropped Faith a note saying I wasn’t going to start decorating my house as it’s just too damned early but these have warmed the cockles of my scroogy heart and they’re going to stay out.  It helps that even at their enormous size they’re only 3 prims each.

Again a really nice sized event, easy to navigate, freebies ‘n’ cheapies and lots of Christmas Tat to be bought.

UPDATE cos I’m fact-checking.  These Nutcrackers are on the “Never Totally Dead” stall, as well as a discounted super grimy/grinchy/humbuggy disused old toy factory and I, was tempted to buy but it wasn’t on the demo platform so I decided against but coincidentally the first LM I got for the “Never Totally Dead” shop actually took me to the toy factory so if you want to check that out for yourself.  It does come with a price tag, under 300Lds, but a great home or backdrop if you want to show you disproval of all things Christmassy.

I actually know this shop reasonably well as I’ve made a few purchases from here and also shown you the group gifts. There is a hunt going on at the moment which I sucked at but there is a hint and outside is also candy canes pointing to the way…and yet I still couldn’t find it!

PS. Please try not to break anything as you’re walking through;-)

First deconstruction of the year.(Freebies).

Just as I was binning all my finds from this mornings freebie hunting a note came through from Searlait Nitschke who owns Roawenwood about something called “a circle of giving” and this is where a group of shops have just dropped off some nice gifts for anyone to come and grab so I went and grabbed.

This rug looks familiar to me, I’m also pretty sure I still have it because it comes with a texture changing option and you get 1 rug with poses in it.  Perfect size for small areas and really good natural scrunching.  The cupcake is super Kawaii and although it has snowflakes on it I see no reason to have that out all year round.  The fruitcakes again come in 2 options this decorated one and a plainer one for all year round use.

This is what I tore apart.

Lovely colours with light floating twinkling lights.  I started to take it apart to see if I could remove the only real Winter/Christmas item which is the small Holly you can see at the bottom right but sadly you cannot just remove that as it’s attached to the pots….but that didn’t stop me from removing the pots just to leave those plants.

I didn’t deconstruct it anymore but even so this little clump of flowers, 3prims, really do stand out so either keep them exactly as they come in the original pots (4 prims) or break them down pop them into your own pot or in your garden or just take the 1 or 2 little plants

All of the gifts are scattered on the pile of snow you will find at the LM, although not every box seemed to contain a gift there was plenty of them to keep me out of trouble. There are lots of other things that I’m just not showing you, there is some clothing, a floral headdress, more decor items etc and I don’t think I even got everything that’s there so click away my friends and have fun unpacking and sorting your way through it.

PS use this LM, not the usual Roawenwood one as it takes you directly to the gifts plus I think Searlait Nitschke is actually going to be dropping off other gifts at this LM.

Nothing inbetween.(Freebies n Hunt).

Thanks to the heads up from one of our reg readers I decided to start what looks like another AMAZING Christmas Hunt that has just started but so far I’ve only just scratched the surface and not really found anything yet.  I can see from the list of shop names that there is going to be a total mix of quality goodies for us to find.  So instead of making you wait for me to show you any hunt prize I win, I will put the link to the “Christmas Holiday Hunt” blog where you can get all the LM’s and even better, hints and do it yourself at your own time and leisure.

You will also see from the blog that each shop also has a special discounted item out and I will admit that I snapped up the Belle Epoque one….I’ll let you see that for yourself when you go hunting for the prize.

Although the ChiChica shop is also in this hunt these next 2 items are the gift under the tree for everyone.

Big fat baubles! How often do I do earrings?  Rarely because I just don’t wear them but how could you resist these dangling down.  Made me chuckle and I will probably keep them in for a while.

In the same gift box are these shoes.

OH YESSS! Fabulous bling! It seems a long time since I last found a really good pair of shoes and so I was pleased I left ChicChica early to check the gift out but obviously as soon as I get back inworld I’ll be popping back to hunt down the prize because I’m GREEDY and I need to find something to wear in between earrings and shoes!
