Hold on to your Lindens!!!(Freebies).

I came across a long forgotten folder with some clothes in it from Yasum Design and blimey they were a blast from the past and then I came across a coat/dress which was pretty darn good.  So I TPed over and of course, as soon as I went to the Group Gift rooms I remember this place well.

90% of the gifts are very dated, lots of prim clothing, system layers, sculpties and flexi bits.  When you try this stuff on and compare it to the mesh we all know well you will see how far fashion has come in all these years.  I’m NOT being mean about all the gifts and there are LOADS of them both a men and women’s dept and although I couldn’t find the coat/dress combo I first mentioned there are mesh items and some actually interesting stuff in there and I had a lot of fun trying the old stuff on and then there is this.

A hanging chair which for a whole dept full of clothing was most surprising and it’s excellent. Only 3 Prims only and a really nice hud of 6 cushion colours.

The LM I will give you takes you to a room and in the centre is the TP to all the different dept, I of course just checked out the GG room but I might just check out all the other dept to see what sort of clothes this shop sells now and not the old stuff of the past.  There is also a men’s freebie dept as well, next to the ladies.  BUT you won’t find this chair actually in the gift rooms it and some other gifts are in the cute rabbit head bags just outside the door.  Don’t panic when you TP as the TP places you in front of a wall in a narrow corridor so for a little while you may thing you’re in a cube/wall etc but just turn around and go down the short corridor. Honestly, when you get there it’s easy to see what I mean.

I don’t want you to spend anywhere else today because I’ve just received a note from Mina Nakamura about an amazing offer and that will be my next post so hold on to your hats n lindens.

PS I’ve just remembered one of the other gifts in the bunny bags is a rather good pair of retro sunglasses with a bright bold hud and I’ve already popped them into my “glasses” folder.

Where have all the leaves gone?(Bargains ‘n’ Freebies).

I hope where you haven’t suffered too much from the howling winds we have been battered with overnight.  We sleep with our bedroom window slightly open and during the night all the leaves got blown off the tree outside and it looked like so many of them ended up blown into our room it was funny to wake up under a blanket of leaves.

Redeux is a very time-limited event and TBH I wasn’t going to go as I was going to be a good girl and save my Lindens, invent and sanity but then I spotted a few pictures of whats on offer and it was a case of “Sod That”.

OK, these first 2 items aren’t free but deffo in the “Bargain” category as both cost 35Lds.

A dirty, filthy, disgusting retro washing machine!  When I say “dirty, filthy” etc I don’t mean the appearance I mean the menu! This is packed with some great poses with smooth movements, single ladies, men, and OMG I won’t be using those ones!  I bought this only 35Lds, there is matching pieces ie laundry basket, ironing board which also can be purchased as separate pieces or I do believe you can buy them as a set at a cheaper price than buying them bit by bit…but check first.  I just wanted the washer so that’s all I got and at 2 prims I’m going to open a laundry.

Or at 2 prims a Pumpkin selling business.  Not free again but 35Lds for an excellent seasonal decor item and I’ve already set this one out.

I didn’t get any further than the landing spot at this event and since every blinking stall not only has so much temptation on it I literally just grabbed a few of the freebies and cheapies I spotted from where I stood and then I TPed out as I would like to come back when it’s a bit quieter and this way I can have a pleasant time wandering around and hopefully not just score some more bargains but what little I opened I have high hopes for some decent Freebies such as this chair/lamp.

Fabulous poses again, hers, his and a more sedate couple ones.  Can you see the plug under the chair?  Click it and…

Woah! This will certainly light up not just your home but put this outside in your landscaping and it will act as a beacon to a place of interest.

Not gonna lie, not 100% sure which is which but again all of these are to be found at the landing spot and just in case you’ve missed it there are OODLES of freebies, I do believe that most of the stands have a nice giftie out for us.

PS No rush BUT this event finished on the 21st and as said the LM takes you to where these items are to be found.

Losing the will to unpack.(Freebies).

I was such a good little AV and I stood on my platform and binned, binned and then binned some more then for some insane reason I decided to go to the latest round ot the The Gacha Guardian event…FOOLISH ME!

Not just so many gifties set out for us but too much temptation in those Gachas which basically means I undid all my good work binning stuff.

Obviously, as usual, a lot of the small Froo Froo sorta thing but when they come as great as this platter of tempting treats who cares.  I was hoping to find a dress or shoes but TBH when I’d unpacked a third of what I got I gave up as it was so late.

I also have to say that one of the reasons I’ve not been doing any of the big hunts going on is because I’m pretty sure our readers will know whats happening plus these events have a tendency to be so busy which means so laggy so I’ve been waiting for them to calm down but this.event was so nice and quiet just a few other AV’s like me wandering around checking the Gacha’s and grabbing the goodies.  So for you I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a Sunday.

I’ve also put the link to the Seraphim website.  This isn’t a blog for cheap or free but it’s the most comprehensive and up to date site for all the SL events.

PS You have to join the “Gimmie Gacha” group but invite is sent.

SaNaRae FREEBIES.

I had just had way too much fun unpacking and sorting through all of the gifties from the SaNaRae Birthday Event.

A really good mix of stuff, some shoes, clothes, lots of jewelry, decor etc and I’m pretty sure that everyone will find something that will make them go “ooo”.  In this picture I’m wearing one of the hairs, I do believe there is another hair as well, this one is pretty damned good and you get some lovely colours in the Hud.  The pie is to chuck at people who you both love and hate.  Go into Mouse mode aim and let loose and it’s silly fun.

I thought this cake was the freebie but couldn’t understand why it had writing above it and then realised it’s because the cake is the delivery box for this adorable AV, YES I am BUTT NAKED in this picture with no pixelation to cover my bits.  I’m pretty sure you get this “beige” piggie and a “pink” piggie plus little shorts to put on if you’re really embarrassed.

There are 3 reasons why I’m just showing you my backside, the first is so you can get a view of the large loose bun, this hair does come with a menu and I did have to make it pretty large to cover my scalp and I think it would look better not so big and so I will shrink it back down and either wear a head Alpha or a tattoo hair base.  The 2nd reason is the bum! Blimey, it’s like 2 watermelons in a sack!  The same can be said for the boobs as well. I actually really love clothes that have the exaggerated “Lady lumps” because sometimes it is nice to have killer curves.  Although this dress comes in a lot of fits but not my SLink one this one was a perfect fit.  The 3rd and last reason that this is a behind shot is that I broke my eyes! I took my little piggie AV off and pulled myself back together but as I was taking pictures of this dress it dawned on me that something was seriously wrong with my eyes, they were bulging out of my head so I just took this “bum” shot and then logged off but don’t worry because as I had expected when I logged back in my eyes were back in my head.

This is only a fraction of the gifts and a really nice and interesting selection but also check out the items for sale.  As I said I bought this build plus a few other things as it’s just nice seeing new stuff.

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.

You snooze you lose! (25Ld tue).

Just had to scrap my last post as the 25Ld item has now been withdrawn which is such a shame as it was a lovely outfit from Belle Epoque BUT on the other hand Belle Epoque now has LUCKY BOARDS outside and OMG there isn’t one thing on those boards I wouldn’t want.  As you can  imagine the place is buzzing with people loitering and waiting to score and the only reason I didn’t linger is there was someone with the same initial as me and I wouldn’t want to win something someone else can use but rest assured I will be back the next time I have a load of notes to go through.

I don’t know if you need to be in the Belle Epoque Group but chances are you will have to but thats just 10Lds and of course there are Group Gifts inside.

So I missed out on the Belle Epoque 25Ld offer but I scored on the Jian one.

There are 3 sets out, this table and a mix of baskets and bags of apples and all super low primmed. There are other sets to chose from, cider bottles and I can’t remember the 3rd but I will probably go back to check them out as well as for 25Lds a bargain as well as great decor items.

I actually picked up a couple of other 25Ld Tue offers as it was pretty good this week but although sometimes shops have them out for the full 7 days some shops have them set out for a limited time and so when you get that list it’s best to do it as soon as you can.

PS This is why I also always say that even though the 25Ld Tue is aimed towards RP/Gor/Medival etc you would be foolish to ignore it as decor like this will fit any sim and any home.

I have it all! (FREEBIES)

Woah! So I finally got over to the Cosmopolitan event which turns out to be celebrating 5 years in SL and you know what that means?  Nope no cake but even better…OOODLES and OOODLES of gifties and even better the gifts are so good!

OK ignore the room I’m in as it’s actually a Rare Gacha win from this event, yes I do spend Lindens lol, but the rest is all freebies and I was having a very pleasant time just rezzing stuff, trying the clothes on and of course seeing what is editable and then I get the heads up that this event only has a few more days left to go!!!

So I snapped some basic piccies in my Nams setting of what I already had out so you can see the quality and yes this shabby chic/romantic fireplace is editable LOL.

It’s obvious whats what in this picture but if you don’t need any new decor items don’t worry, shoes, boots, clothes, nails, jewelry etc are all there as well and from well-known SL shops.

The dress in the top picture is from one of my fav SL shops and I loved this metallic with sheer bits outfit as well.  There was a pair of jeans as well as a halter top that I had briefly tried on and that top is a keeper for me when I refind it.

I will be logging back in-world soon to continue with my happy unpacking and sorting out but since this event is in its last few days I didn’t want to delay telling you about it.  So over all really you need to just go and join the Cosmopolitan group, invite in the entry, and click away as there are so many gifts and so many lovely surprises just waiting for you.

Update because I’ve found out we have till the 13th to get grabby so still a reasonable amount of time but at the same time don’t linger.
