Hashtag this.(Oodles of Bargains).

Last time I stumbled upon the Hashtag event it was literally hours before it was over so I was relieved when I again stumbled upon this event but we have till the 30th WOO HOO because it means I’m going to be able to have a nice leisurely wander around.

This is where you rezz and if you squint you will just be able to make out Alice’s legs as she disappears down the rabbit hole and yes it is an Alice in Wonderland themed event.

Walking into the hole you fall down the tree trunk and land in the shopping area.

People have spend a lot of time and yes money making this a really nice shopping event.  I’ve taken the pictures in the sim setting but when I go back I will be changing it just so I can see things clearer because I basically don’t want to miss anything esp now I have the time to have a good look and not the mad rush I had at the last event.

So what is there for Cheap B*’s like us? the same as the last event in that lots if not all of the shops have gift bags out but they all come with a price tag but those price tags are for tiny amounts ie 5Lds, 10Lds etc and a lot of the shops have more than 1 gift bag.  If you’re penny-pinching then most of the bags when you click on them say what’s inside so you can decide if it’s something you can use.

I’ve only done about a quarter of this event and as I’m starving I thought I’d do a quick post then have a nice lunch and then return inworld for a nice time.  In the limited time I did spend at this event I picked up a couple of the gift bags, bought something which was a nice price but I’m not even sure what it is LOL and yes there is a lot of classic designs but I’ve also spotted a few really nice outfits which again if I wasn’t a CB with a Fat invent I would have been tempted to buy.  Plus again since I’ve only scratched the surface of this event I don’t know but I’m pretty sure at the last one there were FREEBIES so when I return to this event you know I will be snuffling around for those freebies like a pig looking for truffles.

So basically a really nice way to kill a lazy Saturday afternoon.

It HURTS so badly!(Freebies n Cheapies).

I’m drowning in FREEBIES, but the dress I am going to show you is the “cheapie” and you can have a lovely time grabbing and unpacking all the freebies.

I popped over to Asteria Creations, not even sure why but I did and as the LM started to rezz I spotted all these “tombstones”, I was a bit laggy yesterday, but as soon as everything rezzed perfectly I spotted that they’re not tombstones but clothes stands.  The ones I first checked first were the ones to the left  and it turns out those are discounted outfits but I’m glad I continued looking at them all because the ones on the right turned out to be all FREEBIES.

xxxarlause

I ended up going click crazy because the freebies also come in so many different colours/textures etc I just lost control.  I am going to have to be really strict and bin as much as I can but it’s going to be hard and I still haven’t been able to unpack it all.  One thing for sure is you’re going to spend a very pleasant time trying this lot on and deciding what to keep yourself.

I only bought the 1 item from the discounted side and it was so worth the measly 25Lds and it’s a KEEPER.

xxxarlause2

It’s a 2 piece called Arian, with a long under dress and short outer dress.  Obviously, can be worn together or as separates.

xxxarlause5This is the under dress worn on its own and as you can see its a simple slip dress.  A lovely off-white/cream colour with a satin sheen, the ruffled hem makes this stand out and so wearable just on its own.

xxxarlause3

The outer dress as you can see in this picture can only be worn by those who are wearing bikini’s under neither or those who like to flash their boobies, we call them sluts in the UK, having said that if my RL boobies were are nice as my SL ones I would probably flash them any chance I’d get LOL.  What’s not so clear in this picture is that this outer dress is also slightly sheer so there is a hint of bikini or flesh coming through.  If by any chance you’re not too keen on this colour/texture there are other options as well.

PS The paid for dress, like all the other items of clothing, only comes with standard mesh sizes but this sheer one fits perfectly over my SLink mesh bod.

Sweet Revolution(Freebie).

Oooo a nice and simple super Sunday giftie.  The first notice I opened was from “SR” (Sweet Revolutions) and once I saw it  it took me all of 4 mins to TP, group join, snag, tp, slap it out, take 3 pictures and Voila!

xxxsnowuse2 frosty tree’s with stringed lights hanging down.  As you can see they make a great simple way to create an entrance to your home, garden etc

xxxsnowuse2

I took both piccies in our sim setting and I’ve not had a chance to play around with the settings to see how these lights change but I can only imagine they just get better.

10Li’s for the pair BUT they’re unlinked which means each tree is only 5Ls,(did you see what I did there?)  So if you don’t have space or Li’s for both then one has enough visual impact on its own.  I didn’t notice if it was mod, too busy rushing to get this posted, but I did notice they’re non copy.

Sweet Revolutions is one of those shops that may lean towards, RP, Gor, Medieval etc you will be a FOOL not to slap the sub/group boards because this shop has so many bargains, discounts, group gifts etc and both Faith and I have quite a lot of stuff from this shop and use it for sim decor.

It’s heartbreaking! (New Mina, Freebies,Bargains).

A very simple picture of a simple and lovely Autumn look a new Mina from the newest round of FaMESHed.  Called Farah and although it’s at FaMESHed the price hasn’t been bumped up so it’s the standard 250Lds for a shade pack.  As always I will put the link to the main shop because TBH FaMESHed will be packed and this way you can check out the demo iin Lag Free heaven in Mina’s main shop but yet again I must mention that if you’re after a woolly knit hat/hair and or unisex/men’s hair this IS the shop to go.  PS FaMESHed does go on till the end of the month so you have plenty of time.

xxxriceuseYet another excellent GG from FA Creations, I always grab the freebie from this shop but this is also one of the shops I actually spend lindens in having said that I’ve dusted off the woolly’s I bought last Autumn and they have stood the test of time so that’s me sorted.  Oh and this look is a linked top/pants with a colour hud that changes the colour of the woolly but the pants stay the same shade.

Boo Hoo!

xxxriceuse2

Noooo Ricielli have another one of their useless hunts going on! I say “useless” simply because the pumpkins are enormous and no attempt has even been made to hide them.  Each pumpkin costs only, sorry I forgot to check but it’s usually something around the 15/20Ld mark, and check out the board behind me because you can see whats in each pumpkin before you buy and you can also see the sheer quality! It makes me wanna weep that I can’t go pumpkin hunting.

But never fear, I’ve mentioned this before but for any new readers to our blogg check this out….

xxxriceuse3

Holy Crapoli!, the owner’s of Ricielli keep ALL of the old hunt set out hidden in one of the shops and they’re all still at the bargain prices.  TBH I’m not really sad here because I already have or had so many of these I’m not missing out but check this place out and for not much Lindens you can absolutely fill your invent.

999&9=Kustom9 and a whole shed load of 9’s

Finally got myself over to Kustom9 not only because there is a new Mina but also a SHED load of gifties out for just 9Lds each.  So I clicked and clicked and I even treated myself to a couple of Gacha’s and won not just a cute deer for our sim but the Rare skybox from Heikei(anyone wants a skybox? I have way too many so if you want it just drop me a note).

xxxkustom

I didn’t buy everything as when you click on the gift boxes for the most part they tell you what is in them so since I’m not a big jewelry or bag wearer I gave those a miss. So I’ve got some of the decor items scattered around but check out my “look of the day”.

xxxkustom2

Ignore the eyes! not from this event and I don’t think I will be wearing them again as they’re just weird.  OK believe it or not that’s a MINA for just 9LDs and as standard even with her special offers you get the full pack of brown shades and that might just be 5 shades but they are different, I’ve had hair colour packs where you couldn’t even see any difference.  So you have the brown going from light to dark and again ONLY 9Ld!  If you do have some Lindens to spend then check out the last picture for the full priced Mina but not everyone has or wants to spend a lot of money on their SL lives so to be able to give something to those on a budget is absolutely wonderful.  Now check out my “rack” lol.  This figure hugging top is from Kitja and it’s gorgeous a real keeper and then when I put on the jeans from the Spirit stall I was so pleased that they make a great match and then the shoes off the Momento stall again turn out to be the icing on the cake…or the look of the day.

xxxkustom6

I’m keeping these all and I don’t know if anyone does it but we should do it more which is to keep everything that makes a great look in the same folder.  It makes getting dressed in SL so much quicker and easier.  You used to be able to drag and drop the whole contents of your folder onto yourself and Voila you were dressed from head to toe but that was well before Mesh body bits.

Which has just reminded me, the jeans and top come in mesh body fits and the shoes SLink and Maitreya…damn I’m going to have to log back in to check….yes the top and jeans are for SLink Original/ Hourglass and Maitreya Lara sizing but also the jeans and the shoes are for SLink and Maitreya feet.   If you don’t have a mesh body don’t let that put you off picking these up as it just means you will have to rummage in your invent for an alpha to fit and chances are they will fit you perfectly fine.

xxxkustom4

Be warned there is some new designs at this round of Kustom9 which got me looking and counting my Lindens so if you’re easily tempted you might just want to rush in grab the 9Ld gifts and rush out but if you want to stand out with some pretty darn good new looks then treat yourself.

Here is the full priced Mina called Estelle and TBH with such a generous gift sat there I think Mina is probably shooting herself in the foot but again if you have Lindens to spend plus you want hair in another shade pack then try

Go BACK! (Lucky Chairs n Stuff).

I’ve seen 2 pretty interesting films this week the first which is called “The Swiss Army Man” and it’s notorious because Daniel Ratcliff plays a farting corpse and it’s the best performance I’ve ever seen him do, I’m not a Harry Potter fan lol.  I hate to tell you girls and boys but “Harry” now has a great big hairy arse! The other film is called “The Greasy Strangler” and that’s why I’ve not been posting for the past few days and the least said about that film the better but I’ve finally managed to recover and the first thing I did when I got inworld was to go over to the shop Faith has just blogged to grab the full outfit and esp the boots that come with it but I also want to give people a link to another shop with some more exc Lucky Boards but also an excellent monthly Group Git which I did blog not too long ago but it seems a good time to do a quick, lazy, repost as the GG may go soon and I think we have a couple of LB fans…myself inc.

xxxgobackuse

Ha ha, this is what greets you when you follow Faiths link, don’t worry she didn’t get it wrong the gift is right behind you I just chose to pull a pose here as I don’t really have anything new to show I was just here grabbing those boots. BTW I’ve blogged this shop before but omhai it was YEARS ago so I for one am grateful Faith found it again because if I remember correctly the outfit pack I bought was well worth the 99Ld and of course she’s found not just a great freebie but lots of their outfit packs for just 44Lds and if they’re the same quality as the one I had a great find and this time I’m not going to lose the LM lol.

xxxcubeuse

So this is the Group Gift from Cynful and yes scroll back and I did it just a couple of weeks ago but again it’s still out for us to grab and Cynful is a Group I’m still a member of for 2 reasons first is the amazing monthly group gift which is put out but also the very active and well stocked Lucky Chairs which are in the room behind the main entrance.  This is a very popular place because of the quality of the LB contents and that means the turnover in initials is quick.

Faith’s post for all the links and more details.

It’s a Wash (New round of “The Wash”).

As we all should know by now EVERYTHING at “the wash” is only a measly 10Lds which means even meanies like me can stock up like mad with all those things I don’t need and will never use!

Talking of which is this island.

XXXIslacin

I zoomed out to show you that this island in the sky is a perfect size for a small parcel of land and the prim count was just as suitable tiny, oops I can’t remember exactly but I will update the post when I get back inworld but it was in the low 20ties so anyone with a tiny plot of SL land but big dreams can have a slice of paradise….it’s 26 prims.

A really good mix of clothes and Home and Garden items this round of The Wash.  I picked up some suitcases, hanging baskets, a footstool and this adorable pot of paper flowers.

XXXIslandcinnea

I’ve noticed is that the prims like the prices are dropped as well, It used to be the case the cheaper the decor item the chances are the higher the prims but every decor item I rezzed was pretty prim light and this gorgeous simple paper flower is only 2 prims.

OK Disclaimer, I was going to play with my inworld Windlight setting to basically make a gorgeous tropical look and I forgot so I’ve fiddled with the picture but the texturing quality is pretty damned good.
