Part 2.(Freebies).

I did go straight back to the “The Best Point”, check out my last post, and there are FREEBIES and cheapies as well as something which I’m seriously thinking about spending some Lindens on.

The cheapies are the little gift bags on the stall, some are free and some come with a token price but the “The Best Point Group” is free and this top and pants are just 2 of the freebies out for us.

These and the TeleportHub gift are donated from a shop called “Anny’s Fashion” and I have blogged their GG’s before but one of them looks new even to me so I will put the LM to the shop for you to check those out.

I wasn’t going to grab the top at first as it has a lot of slogan in the hud you get with it and I’m just not a slogany(sic) sort of person but I’m glad I did as this simple floral texture is just what I like.  As for the pants just really good additions to your invent and they too come with their own hud.

PS. There is a neat little trick, although both of these are separate gifts put both of them on and then use the hud for the top and see what happens.

The Best Point(These gifts are not next to the TeleportHub one, if the LM doesn’t take you to them then it’s not a big event and you should find them easy enough esp as they are also near to a party table.

Way to much. (Freebies & Cheapies & a NEW Mina).

A new small shopping mall has opened called Boulevard Illuminati and although not all of the shops so far have tenants those which do are some of SL’s most recognisable names including No Cabide which is where this freebie comes from.

I have a tendency to unpack and the first thing I find which has me going “ooo” is what you get to see.  I didn’t actually care for this at first as it’s just too pale a blue for me but the more I looked at it the more I like it.  You really do stand out in it, its form-fitting, simple and yet stylish.  There is a whole gift box of old gifts on the desk in the No Cabide shop.

From the quick scan I had of this shopping mall there seems to be some freebie/cheapies etc in the other shops and you will see scattered on the ground gift bags.  I think somethings come with a price tag but just a token price tag.  I’m heading back to grab the rest soon.

As for the hair it new and old at the same time.  Called Carian which is the same name as a very recent hair but that hair is a “hat/hair” and this is the hair without the hat.  At first, I couldn’t understand why but as soon as I put it on I could see that without the hat it’s just a very wearable hair.  As standard, you get a big colour hud and a styling hud and as standard, the link to Mina’s mainshop as this hair is only for sale at the new FaMESHed event and it’s not even worth trying to squeeze in there.  So try it on at Mina’s first and get the LM for a later date.

PS. Though, if you’re on a budget don’t buy this till I show you the other NEW Mina hair, trust me it’s worth the wait.

Who doesn’t love a good sale. (Chrom 75% sale).

Normally Faith doesn’t like doing a “Closing down sale” but in this case it’s just the Chrom inworld shop but it’s Marketplace shop is remaining open and so here is the little bargain I snapped up.

Skirt only.  It cost me just 19Lds but do NOT get temtped by the bargains and buy before you try.  The whole range of clothes seem to come in only standard mesh fits and so you must buy the demo first.  This skirt is  the L size and there is breakthrough but because I tried the demo I knew what I was getting and I think this brown skirt is screaming Autumn to me.  So I will be tucking it away in my invent, ok I will be losing it in my invent, and then when the season changes this skirt is just what I want to go with jumpers/jackets etc.  Worse comes to worse and because it’s standard mesh fits might not fit too well with any SLink fit for only 19Lds I thought it was well worth the risk.

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.
