A good excuse.(10Ld Giftie).

You may recognise the sim I’m on from the Spaceship behind me.  I didn’t need an excuse to return to use this sim as a backdrop but it turned out to be the ideal place to show off this 10Ld bathing suit.

The bather is from Continuum Fashion.  You get 2 shades, this green and a red one which does have a different pattern to it and of course green is my fav colour so this is the one I’m showing you.  Lots and lots of fits.

The sunglasses are one of the prizes from the Starfish hunt that I did in my last post and they’re KEEPERS for me.  I’m slightly kicking myself as in this second picture I should have also worn one of the cute swim rings which are actually the delivery boxes but are also fun wearables.  So if you’ve missed it scroll back to my last post and check out the Starfish Hunt details.  I haven’t finished it yet but I think it goes on till the 30th, no guarantee though, so I have plenty of time.

Never mind it’s a great start to the day.

With Dread.(Freebies & Bargains@The Wash).

I dreaded going to the wash because there is usually so many bargains all those bargains cost me a fortune and this time history was almost repeating itself because I spotted 3 things which I almost clicked and bought but I resisted and instead grabbed all the GIFTS!

It’s not often there are freebies at this event because of the superb bargains but there are plenty of little blue gift boxes set out on the stalls.

This is the first box I opened and it’s a “Classic SL Design”. I’ve grabbed and binned many of this style but in this case, the colours sing to me.  Obviously, the windlight/facelight and editing have affected the colours but it’s beige with a slight satin sheen and a touch of gold to the frill and I love it.  It comes in many fits and 2 versions, this is the V2 version.  In the same gift box is a freebie for them but TBH by that time in RL the sun is blazing and I lost all interest in the details lol.

So I can’t tell you which stall this came off or even why there are gifts set out for us and instead of logging back in I’m putting on my RL baggy clothes, slapping on the sun cream, making myself a mug of coffee and a crisp sandwich (go on try it you won’t regret it) and I’m going to sit in the sun and remind myself of how it’s the simple things in life which really mean the most.

I’m such a LOSER! & I got spendy!

Nope, still no free top to go with the skirt and even worse I SPENT LINDENS!  AND I spent those Lindens on a HAIR which is not a Mina! (Mina will not mind at all lol).

But I think you too will be just as tempted as I was.

I always keep an eye out for hairs which have something unique to them and this hat/hair combo from Vagrant has it. Add to that a big colour hud for both hair and hat and with a more than reasonable price tag of just 150Lds it was a no brainer.

Obviously, I  tried the demo on which was a good idea as at first, it was a poor fit on my Lelutka noggin fortunately even with my cack-handed editing it was no problem to use the menu to get a PERFECT fit so deffo make sure to try the demo for yourself.

The Vagrant shop is mainly clothes and you will find this at the back of the shop, don’t worry it’s not a big shop.

I’m giving up for my free top hunt at least for the moment.  RL needs me and I have to log off and “adult” for a while but when I return I shall redeem my Cheap B* label with that damned elusive quality free top.

PS.  Damn I’ve just looked at myself in a RL mirror and my hair isn’t even a “hot mess” it’s just a mess and if I could get away with it I’d jam a hat on my RL noggin as well.

This itty bitty little thing has cost me a fortune! (FREEBIES).

Woah I’ve just got back from the Redeux event which is celebrating it’s their second anniversary which means GIFTS for ALL….actually this event is one of the more generous gift giving events there is and this adorable soap set is one of the freebies.

I’ll let you into a RL secret, I used to be a soap maker and although I love what I do now I am missing the creativeness of soaping and this little set and those sticks of soap OMG! I swear part of me is staring at this picture and thinking “yes you can” the other part is remembering I now have sensitivity from working with EOs (Essential oils) and my sense of smell was being damaged by all the fragrance sniffing.

Anyhow, I’m using this simple gift just to let you know that there is not only a SH*T load of gifts but so many discounts and offers and of course the Gacha’s in the middle of this event and I’ve spent all my money! Now I have an internal debate as to whether I remain poor for the rest of the month or buy more Lds!

This event is over on the 21st.  Grab everything then plonk yourself somewhere where you won’t be bothered and slowly but surely unpack all the goodies, bin the ones you won’t use and stash away the keepers and I promise you by the end of it you will be totally chilled.  I am heading to my platform and doing just that and if I come across something which has as much wow factor, for me, as this soap set I might just tack it on to this post.

PS.  The soap is a gift from the “Insurrection” stall and you “wear” the unpacker and listen to what it says.

UPDATE. Oooo not disappointed at all, I’m having to log off SL and I’ve only unpacked about 8 boxes and found a fab top, a very interesting dress, bento lipstick ao, a rabbit outfit, cushions, jewellery inc facial one, some quality shelves and a pair of glasses which are as wearable as the pair I’ve just blogged.  I’m looking forward to when I have more free time to finish unpacking the rest.

Don’t scroll past this post. (5Ld Hunt & Event).

You will need to check out the “Ostara’s Alta Event” blog so you can see the prizes you’re hunting for as each prize costs 5Lds.

I’m only showing you the one item I picked up just to tempt you with its prettiness.  I will admit I also grabbed the beautiful “flora headband” from the Oubliette stand and it’s delightful unlike the totally naff picture I took of it so take my word that for 5Lds you will get yourself an accessory you will love to wear and just as good is the fact when rezzed it’s only 1 prim!  All that detail and just a single prim is a bonus as you can use it as a pretty little decor item.

If you look at the blog pictures the ones on the right are the 5Ld prizes and so you can spot a few items of clothing but I’m heading back in for those plants…which won’t surprise you at all.

I forgot I took a picture of the Flora Headband when it was rezzed so I decided to add it to the post.

So imagine this on your head and also on your dressing table.

UPDATE.

When I logged back inworld to finish off the hunt I found that a few of the stalls have extra gifts out for us and in this case, the Squishy fluff shop has this sweet freebie for us.

Lots of fits for this dress and it does come with a really good “strap/halter” but I thought it distracted from the simpleness of the dress and since it’s an add on I didn’t add it on but that also means you can use it to accessories other outfits.  I was still wearing the lovely hunt prize headdress and although it doesn’t go with the Cactus pattern of the dress I’m keeping it on.

PS.  I did notice that the stalls also have pictures of the hunt prizes and also that not all of the hidden eggs that you’re looking for are in the stalls, they are in fact dotted around.

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.

WOAH!

Check this out.

Not sure how I ended here at the entrance to the”Re:Japonica” event but it just gets better as you walk through the tunnel so check this out.

Woah again.  Taken just in the sim setting and no camera tricks this is a feast for the eyes.  So I quickly snapped a couple of pictures and then checked Seraphim to see if there is any info and of course there is.  So I will put the link to the Seraphim blog.

Freebies? I’m not sure because the one thing I’ve noticed with Seraphim is that they don’t dwell on any freebies but I can’t imagine a more pleasant way to spend a lazy sunday than just meanering around and of course the icing on the cake will be if there is freeness for us.
