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.

5 for 5Ld.(Marketplace Dollarbies).

A great start to my meanie month.

I could be wrong but I’m sure that the N-Uno marketplace shop used to be not just an inworld shop but also from the day it opened its doors it was a 1Ld shop. Faith might remember if it was this shop or another one but it doesn’t really matter as everything in this shop is still 1Ld.

All of the clothes come in standard mesh fits which of course does tell you about the age of them but I ain’t complaining.

Doh! I took off the cardigan to this outfit which is casually slung over your shoulders and I forgot to put it back on, so you get the jeans, top and an over the shoulder cardie for 1Ld.

Pay attention to the details of what you’re buying as you will see that some come as fat packs and in others, you get a single item. I bought 5 items for, obviously 5Lds, and I won’t be keeping any of them but that’s only because I already own way too much.  The jeans you see in the second picture would deffo be keepers if I needed jeans and I did really like the Candy Dress.

Update cos I think I am wrong.  As I was getting the link for the MP shop I spotted there is an inworld shop as well so with bated breath I logged in and the 1Ld offers are only MP offers.  The main shop is selling the much more up to date designs, fits and of course a price tag to match.  Obviously, if you want to check it out just use the MP link to the inworld shop.

As for Faith’s challenge all I can say is…

Classic(10Ld) gifts.

I popped over to the Jersey Shore event and I knew the first two 10Ld items I grabbed would be blog worthy so I’ve left this event just to take a couple of quick pics as I am very short on time.

The beachy bra and skirt are a classic SL design and these are as good as they get.  Love this particular texture but if you don’t then there are other options in the hud as well as a sh*t load of fits.

This was the other thing I picked up is this fully drivable Segway, unless you’re me and you can only drive people crazy it is drivable.

The outfit comes from the MOoH shop and the Segway from the V-Twins Bike Shop.

I’m still very short of time but when I returned to LM grab I spotted a shop I haven’t visited in a long time but love so I did a quick cam and spotted a pair of boots in the Sevyn stall called “Kimora Heels”.  These are actually see-through plastic and come with a decent colour hud and even though I was feeling guilty as still being inworld I had to TP home to try them on and when I log in I’m buying them.  Most unusual, great looking, big colour hud and only 99Lds.

I’m offffffff….

A work of art, this is for Moz. (Freebie).

I was looking at the skirt part of this dress and racking my brains as to why it looks so familiar and it finally hit me, like a brick in the face. I don’t know if it’s a famous painting but I think I recognise this design from Cross Stich kits you can buy off Amazon lol.

This is a one piece and I won’t lie as the top has those “sharp” edges, you know what I mean, which is a slight shame as the colours of this outfit are so bold and bright but I can also see that pop a top/jacket/jumper or long wiggie on and soften the top.  This gift and the men’s gift I’m about to babble on about are set to 0Lds and you just buy them.  There are a couple of other gifts around the shop so I don’t know if they too are set to 0Ld as I didn’t grab them.

But I did grab the men’s gift and I did have a hope that the xxs size would fit me and I could show it to you but because it’s designed for monkey boy shapes ie big shoulders, arms etc it looked a bit odd naturally on a male AV it will fit perfectly.  It’s a simple sweatshirt with a big hud of very usable texture and not just sizes because you also have a choice of how the shirt fits ie tucked, hanging, wide bottom (to go over jeans) etc.  MOZ, go get it I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

PS.  I finally got into FaMESHed but it’s too late as you will have seen all the freebies but at least I know have the pleasure of sitting on my platform and working my way though my haul.

PPS.  I logged back into LM grab and had a wander around the shop and the prices are very reasonable, ie cheap so it’s a good chance to pick up some bargains.

A good start. (Freebie & 5ld offer).

For sale, 2 cats, slightly used, expensive to feed, furniture scratchers, night warblers/morning warblers and guaranteed to cover you and everything you own in hair and totally 100% ungrateful little sh*ts.  Make me an offer I will accept ANYTHING even a bloody cookie!

Enough moaning and here is today’s freebies n cheapies.  I don’t think I’ve shown you these exact items but of course, a lot of designs are now SL “Classics” which means a lot of shops have the same designs but change the textures.

This is the MLM Group Gift and that costs 5Lds to join and for that, you get the top, jeans and shoes. TBH worth it for the jeans alone.  chances are you already have a similar design but if not then you do need these.  The top has a nice texture hud and although you can’t see the shoes the shoes have the same texture hud as the top.  ALL of the mesh fits you could need as well.

The shorts are almost as identical to the jeans just a tad darker and the top also has a texture hud.  They and the top are freebies for the …..group….. can’t remember which group but as you will see when you go to the Alias shop there is a selection of gifts for different groups.  While I was LM grabbing I quickly joined the Alias free group and grabbed that gift as its the same jeans but black plus a spotty top which I did try on and it’s bright and bold.

Disclaimer.

I do have to say that obviously a lot of shops buy “full perm” items which they retexture and repackage so the clothing I’m showing you is what I call a “classic” SL design in other words you have probably seen the same things in many shops and inevitable some items will have been blogged before and I’ve forgotten that either I have blogged them or Faith did.  In the end I think as long as the items being blogged are damned good then it doesn’t really matter in the end as to a lot of our readers they maybe new.

PS.  There are other gifts in the shop.

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.

Oops I did it again!(Flourish Event)

I went and bought something I already had but I ain’t mad.  Before I explain why, what, and where here is another Mina hair but my excuse for showing you another hair is that this one is ONLY….99Lds.

“Annie” is not an old dated hair dug out of her invent, dusted off and repackaged.  This is a pretty new hair and even though it’s at a discounted price you still get the full-colour palette AND of course the “style” hud. I’m not showing you the behind of this hair, there is a demo for you to try, but it’s a French Pleat style, you can have it either smooth and low or slightly higher with a teased look.

The “Oops” wasn’t the 3 backdrop pack for 99Lds I bought or the amazing boat for 90Lds which I grabbed before I even prim checked(20 prims) it was the LB (Little Branch) Orange Tree set because it turns out I already own it.  I’m not going to cry into my orange juice as it only cost me 88Lds and for that, you get a copy and mod tree which even better is SEASONAL!  Anyone who decorates/landscapes in SL knows that paying for seasonal items can, in the end, save you a lot of Lindens and almost as importantly a lot of time and again at 88Lds so CHEAP.

Everything at this event seems to be 100Lds and under.  I obviously went for the decor items but there is everything for everyone, shoes, clothes, hair, poses and of course landscaping and decor all laid out in a very attractively landscaped desert setting.

PS. If you love Puffins you will love what’s on the stall next to the boat lol.
