10 out of 10. (10Ld Gift& super 99Ld Tree)

It’s finally here, my Christmas spirit that is and I’m not talking about the boozy sort of spirits lol.  With my OH being poorly, RL, work, and all of that sorta thing these last few weeks have been a bit of a struggle but now he’s back to full health and more importantly back at work and OUT OF MY HAIR! I can now start to actually get back to normal and I started it all off with an overnight stay to an amazing RL Christmas market.

Anyhow, that’s enough about RL so here is something for your SL.  I found this big Christmas shop quite a few weeks ago and because it was way too early to even be thinking about anything that twinkles I filed it away for a revisit nearer the time and the time is NOW.

I took a quick snap of this sleigh in the shop itself because I wanted to get a post up but I didn’t want to leave the shop as I will be buying something very twinkly for our sim I just haven’t decided what as yet.  It looks like you cannot buy the item from the shop when you click on it it takes you to the MP which is where you buy it and it’s just delivered to you inworld.  I will give you both the inworld and MP links because to truly appreciate all of the sparkles and glittered decor and lights you have to see them inworld.  Although the decor is for all sims there is a nice selection of stuff for people who live on a beachy tropical themed sim so even you sun lovers can still have some Christmas sparkle on your palm trees.

Now I know why the name of this shop & shop owner ,Antreas Alter, seemed to be so recognisable it’s because although this is the Christmas shop “Real Waves” is a very well known brand in SL for it’s beachy stuff.  I’m pretty sure I have a wave package from here but I’m 100% sure I have that dollarbie enviromental pack as near to my SL home I have a bit of a sea theme going.

PS.  I made my mind up and if you’re wondering this is what I bought.  I didn’t even see it in the inworld shop but if it’s anything like the rest of the stuff here I don’t need to see it to know it’s going to look stunning.

UPDATE.

I just had to come back inworld to check my tree out and this is it, this is my Christmas decor for just outside of my house and it’s stunning.

I didn’t really read the details before I bought it but for 99Lds you get quite a lot of “versions” but this one is the winner for me and it’s now outside my house as my one and only “Christmas tree”.  The leaves are that sharp metallic shape to them and the fruit also shines but the whole lot twinkles.  Honestly so pretty.  Although I didn’t see this in the Christmas shop I do believe it is there if you want to check it out before you buy but if you just want to go for it then read the details about all the different versions you get and what you can do with it.

Pucker up girls.(Dollarbies).

I squeezed in-world again and decided to check out one of the places one of our regular readers had dropped me a hint about and WOW I’m so pleased I did but first a BIG FAT WET FRENCH KISS to ImproLibra Silverstar for the heads up about the “Blessed Relief” landscaping finds and the sloppy kiss this time goes to Kiylee.

That’s Moi casting my Winter magic over our sim in this so freakingly purty dress from Yasum.

Truth be known when I TPed over to Yasum I remember this place well and it wasn’t long ago that I did a post about the Freebies you can get there but a lot if not all of these freebies are, how can I say it? a blast from the past! If you want to know what sort of clothes were available in SL for a long time then the Freebie room in Yasum is full of this stuff.  Just before I TPed out I rechecked Kiylee’s note and she mentioned a “VIP room” and so I hopped back on the TP, that’s how you move around, and yup there it is.  You do have to wander around to find it but the main shop is rather nice looking and I will be sneaking back in future to use it as a backdrop to some pictures.

There isn’t much in the VIP room but the group is still free to join and everything just costs 1 Linden.  This dress, like a couple of other of the Dollarbies, comes with a pretty big Hud which will take it from pure white to witchy black and lots of little adaptations as well,  you can change the front panel, the buckles, even the locket etc

If you don’t want to grab much else get the headscarf.  Yes, even after XXX amount of years in SL I still don’t have “hat hair” and with mesh hair now being the norm and hard to edit I basically don’t often bother with headscarves which is a damned shame because I did buy the headscarf and it’s gorgeous esp the pink satin shade but I can’t show it to you.  There is a coat and pants set both of which seem to come in his “n” her versions and a very interesting couple of textures in the coat Hud along with the standard shades.

Yasum Design, (use The Force or as we call it the TP to the different depts).

BoHo FREE !

The Boho Culture Fair is open for a few more days and you need to rush over – shop and collect all the brilliant gifts. Rur Life have a sensational  pants & top out for you .

Ducknipple have a lovely top with multi colour Hud.

This complete look is by Vaxler – you get the belt, skirt and top – plus the Hud for other patterns and colours.

Last but not least this gorgeous dress from ArisAris, with a  Hud containing 5 other patterns! (Most of the gifts I found were free, some cost $1L, and most did have fits for mesh bodies & standard av’s.)

The Boho Culture Fair

Broken Vows.(Dollarbies).

They tempt you with the freebies/dollarbies/gifties etc and then sucker you into spending Lindens when you were going to stick to your guns and not spend any more.

OK, this has to be bought from the Maya’s Architecture Marketplace shop only.

This is all for a single Linden and I have edited the set up a little bit.  You get the lounger, table with decor, lamp, trees, bright autumnal leaves  and the lantern and they all come on a square but since they’re all unlinkable and copyable I took away the bit they were stood on, put the table closer to the lounger and copied a couple of the tree’s/leaves to make a nice setting.  Some really nice poses in this both single and couples(I think there are couples), I loved the simple sitting pose with the tea-sipping or book reading, very nicely done.

This is a close up of the trees because they’re really, really good and only 2 prims each.  You do know that if you want a shrub then you can just lower a suitable tree so the trunk is under the ground and you have the shrubbery just showing?  I’ve done this many a time before when a tree has been stunning but I wanted a shrub.  There are 5 Dollarbies waiting for you in total.

Be WARNED, esp if like me your a build hoarder ALL of the builds in the Maya’s shop/marketplace shop are 50 bloddy Lindens!!!  ARGH!  Before I started to click away I checked my invent because I do remember this shop from a long time ago and yes I already have a lot of them in my invent but that didn’t stop me buying more!!!  Lots of the houses come fully furnished some with both furnished and unfurnished options, you can buy streets and cottages complete with gardens so many styles and options and again only 50Lds!

I had to log off last night and so I didn’t get a chance to rezz the other Dollarbies I picked up which is a pouf, a small house and what looks like it could be an adorable little pier so I’m looking forward to logging in and checking those out and I will be honest and once I’ve checked out what I already have I will be going back for more.  BTW in case, you’re wondering because there are no demo’s for you to see I used my Nams setting but from memory, the quality of the texturing may not be Apple Fall standards but I’ve paid more for much less quality!

PS If you like the Twin Peaks TV series, the original one, there is a couple of buildings from the shop PLUS don’t be fooled by the gifts in-world as they just send you the Marketplace link.

“FY,IT”(Hunt Dollarbies).

I spent so much time on our sim playing with the windlight trying to get one that has all of the Autumnal colours but doesn’t make your AV look horrible and although in the end I liked this sim setting I did have to pop on a stronger Facelight so I won’t be keeping it.

Anyhow, I decided that since there are sooooo many hunts starting in SL I too would start to hunt and this Pea Coat from Loordes is a brill start.

It’s the 2Ld “FY,IT”hunt item and it stands for something I totally agree with and thats “F**k yeah, it’s fall” except in the UK we don’t call the season “fall” we call it Autumn.  What you’re looking for is a leaf and TBH no hint needed as this hunt prize with quite a few others are just right there in front of you in and around the Discount area in Loordes of London.  The LM will take you right there.

Regular readers will know I’m a big Loordes of London fan as not just the amazing bargains you can get in the discount section, and there are NEW special offers, but the whole range of Loordes is so wearable.  To me, it’s the Marks and Spencers of SL and that’s a really good thing.

PS This comes in all standard mesh fits and an Alpha.

F**K YEAH, IT’S FALL blogg

It’s BananaN’s!(Freebies ‘n’Dollarbies).

Not sure whats more pleasing, finding a tube of Pringles in your cupboards or some decent things on the Marketplace.

First Dollarbie are these “Mad Hatter” table sets.  You get 5 colours and each piece is only 1 prim.

These bunnies are FREE and adorable.  I put them on one of the Mad Hatter tables but I don’t think the colour contrast does them justice, they should be in pastel, froo froo bedrooms or home.  Just behind them, you will just be able to make out the delivery box which is a nice shape and a prim so for those, me, who like to use boxes as scattered decor items the delivery boxes these items come in work well for that.

And yes EDITABLE! so I’ve Took away the flowers which will make a lovely decor item on its own and you can shrink or grow the vase and of course, add your own flowers if you wish.

Yup this is as random as it gets LOL.  A little cardboard box cafe.  It doesn’t come with the little critter you see in the picture but there is a little mouse dollarbie which you should check out as well and that looks as though it will tuck inside there quite nicely.

This is an another dollarbie but worth so much more.  Washi tape/ribbon on a holder. 1 Prim.

I’m not going to show you the last dollarbie I picked up because the pictures I took of it are complete and utter rubbish but when you check out the link to the BananaN Marketplace shop you will be able to check out all the gifts/dollarbies and 10Lds offers for yourself.

PS I’ve put the link to the inworld shop from the MP shop but I’ve not checked it out yet but of course you might just want to.

A New Look.(Freebie).

This isn’t my usual look but this is how I’m going to spend the rest of the day as I mooch in SL.

I look like a proper little Church Mouse creeping in early to spy on the wedding.

A blouse and skirt from S@bbia, sorry I didn’t take a behind shot as this blouse has a lovely ribbon detail at the neck.  Can be worn as separates as well but they only come in the 1 size.

PS.  Normally if I don’t mention anything else I’m wearing or using it’s because it wasn’t free or it’s an old gift that might but still be out BUT I’ve just checked and this amazing set of books with a hand holding pose is STILL only 10Lds and it’s not the only super cute bag/accessory starting from as little 0Lds and quite a few for a Dollarbie and a few bags/wearables in this style.  I’m just about to TP over to the in-world shop to see if they’re also there or if they’re just on the Marketplace and I’ll add the update if needed.
