Mondays Kiss (freebies).

I’m kissing (keep it simple stupid) it this morning because I got so distracted with the remodelling of my new house I ran out of time.  Sometimes when I have a new home I simply delete the old one leaving all the internal decor items where they are and then spend my time picking through them to see what I’m going to keep and what I’m deleting and so as I was doing this I just took a moment to pop a couple of items on and snapped a few shots off.

OK confession time, I’ve either forgotten to pick up the NEW Asteria gift or I accidentally deleted it as I tried on quite a few of the Group Gifts set out for us and so what I am showing you I have shown you before BUT in my defence I’ve not shown you these textures.

XXXUrbD

A simple strapless romper, the belt is a perfect fit and you get a choice of sizes and since it comes as a separate it’s very handy for going with not just this outfit but also jeans, shorts, skirts etc although the romper itself is familiar this lovely leafy flowery texturing isn’t.  There is a choice of colours as well for you to choose from.

XXXUrbD2

I have shown you this dress and I know I have because even though that post was actually now quite a long time ago I still have this dress in my invent but in the mossy green shade and this time I wanted to show you a different colour.  There is a whole selection of shades on offer and there is no reason why you can’t snag the whole lot of them.  A simple well-fitting, well textured and so easy to wear dress.

As I’ve said I ran out of time other wise I would have gone back to regrab the new GG, free to join of course.  You will find all the GG’s not in the shop but outside right next to where you rezz.  Just in case you’re not a Mesh Head then there are clothes for you as well in fact a good mix of mesh and non mesh so everyone can find something.

Over loaded with FREEBIES!

Faith must have brought some good luck back with her because yet again I’ve scored and scored so well!

I popped over to Allure and joined their Free group and then found that there is so many Freebies out there I can’t actually show you them all….but I’m damn well going to give it a try.

XXXUrb

Leather straps and rivets are not my usual style but this is just great quality and of course mesh you can also wear it with or dare I say without those panties!

XXXurb2

Red hot n sexy and that’s the dress not me.  The rose I’m holding seems to be in all of the boxes and inc a 50ld gift card for you to use.  I’m also going to assume its 50lds for each purchase and you can’t lump them all together to buy the one item that would just be greedy LOL.

XXXurb8

I found 2 pairs of SLink shoes with different outfits.  These teal green pair come with a black dress but because of my very dark skybox you couldn’t really see it so I just zoomed on the shoes…DIVINE!

 

XXXurb5

You can’t really see the design of this pair of SLink shoes in this picture but again they’re worth snagging.

XXXurbs

The texturing on this cat suit is both stunning and scary because it’s so snake-like!  It really stands out.

Now that I’m in the Allure shop LM grabbing it’s a case of OMG as I’ve realised that apart from the New stuff everything in this shop has a Free Version for Group Members.  Check out my next post as I picked up even more and if these don’t tempt you then I’m sure my next post will.

PS in the entryway there is a TP to private changing and unpacking rooms for both men and women so handy if you have to go to a sandbox to unpack.

2LMs 2 Prices. (Freebie n Cheapies).

I saw this Camo Romper Suit in a couple of Flickr Groups but tbh didn’t pay much attention as I should have had but then out of the blue I decided to pop over to Ricielli to check out something only to find that the Romper is in fact their Free to join group Gift! So I snagged in and then went hunting.

Once you’ve grabbed the Free GG then head to the next LM.  One of the amazing things that Fhara K. Ricielli does is once a Hunt is over she sets out all of the old hunt items in the one place for people to come and pick and chose what they want.  The hunt items aren’t free  but at 15lds for each prize and often a prize consists of more than 1 colour option and they’re shop quality it’s a small price to pay.  Since you buy these items there are boards set out with the pictures to show you what is in each prise so you can pick and chose, tbh my picture will hopefully show this.

I’m not sure if the second LM will take you directly to the room with the old hunt items but if it doesn’t check out the sign post next to you and just head that way.

It ain’t happening! (Freebies).

Sigh! after all of that I turn up and I’m sat there in the dentist office trying, and failing, to be brave only for them to come out and apologise because one of the pieces of equipments, I can only assume resembles the face clamp out of the Saw movie, was broken.  So I happily ran out with a big grin on my face until I realised that I now have to go through all of that again at a later date.

crossgreenurdbox

I’m revamping our sim which means updating the plants and trees so I popped over to one of my fav SL shops and Woo Hoo I found Freebies.  A charming old rickety mail box, some lovely details to it ie the key on the side, paintbrush etc but not only is this only 3 prims you get an even lesser prim version which is minus the key, brush, letters but still has all the charms but only 1 prim!

Right next to this Group Gift is a couple of tops.

crossgreenurbtop

Now it’s obvious that I have edited the picture.  When I’m showing paid for items I like to show them as true to colour as poss but when it’s a freebie I allow myself some artistic leeway but I will also give you an honest description.  The main body of this top is more a creamy white with the pastel almost childish flowers on it, the back panel of this top is a plain almost hessian texturing look to it.  It actually has a home-made look to it something a crafter or recycler would make.  You do get another colour, blue I think, but I ran out of time to try it on.

I’ll only give a quick mention of the hair as it’s a paid for item and there for I want to show you it’s true colours but of course since this is a Mina hair then you will be able to see from my many posts just like I’m a PumeC nut I’m a Mina nut and so you can see the sorts of colours that come as standard with Mina hair.  It’s only available at the Shiny Shabby event at the moment and since I literally only managed to squeeze my AV in there for a few minutes I want to do a better post about this hair and hopefully any new Freebies that maybe at this event.

If the first LM doesn’t take you right to the Group Gifts, and it probably won’t, simply follow the sign to the Mainshop but don’t walk straight ahead into the tree’s turn right and the main shop is there.

PS Smack the LM board for HPMD’s Christmas room.  Nothing is for sale but this “room” is a fantasy of swirling festive items a delight to the eye.

Yonks! (Freebies n Cheapies).

It’s been “yonks” since I last visited the D!va mainshop but when another blogger, Kiylee mentioned that they had a new Free hair out I was there in a heartbeat.  WOW check out “Bambi”.

keep

Adorable, cute and different.  Those little hair horns are so Kawaii and yet wearable for even the “un Kawaii” lol. This hair comes with 2 versions the “horns” up or to the side and you will see that in other pictures.  The icing on the cake, apart from it being a free to join group, is that you get a whole fat pack of the colours.  I’ve not had  a chance to even count them but from my first glance it looks like you have every shade from black to blonde.  You will have to join the group but again thats FREE.  You will find this GG in the centre of the shopping area, easy to find because of the crowds of people who like us have TPed into grab the goodies.

But linger at D!va because there is a SALE going on.  At 125Lds a pack it looks like it’s a pretty generous sale so you might find something to treat yourself to.

Just love this dress, the colour, style, fit etc and not forgetting the back.

keep2

A brill freebie from Wertina.  There is also a pair of earings anyone can pick up but to get this dress you will have to join the Free group.

As I wandered around the Wertina shop I came across the discounted section, on one of the mezzanine level.  Everything seems to be priced at 10Lds or at least the 3 items I picked up.

keep3

I am not a great slogan top fan but I can’t agree more with the sentiments on this top.  Again a great fit etc and only 10Lds.  More choices available for this top.

shirt

Check out the “side horns” on my D!va hair. This shirt is also a discounted item, a simple white shirt with a bit of detailing and the lovely scrunched up look at the waist which give your clothes that realistic touch and again 10Lds, more colours available but only the coloured stripes.

Actually when I went back to LM grab and ended up buying more stuff from the discount section, a spotty skirt and a very pretty summery dress.  I also had a wander around the Wertina shop and drooled a bit.  Not cheap but not overpriced for some new designs and great texturing, even a hardened Freebie hunter like me was tempted but then I quickly TPed out.

Winter Wonderland.

Have you ever seen a notice about a hunt and drooled over the gifts and then TPed over ready to start hunting only to find EVERYONE ELSE IS THERE! this is that sort of Hunt but then again when you see the prizes and the sim you can understand why.

getloss

I moved away from the main landing spot which is a delightful cafe overlooking a little marketplace which has stalls with Christmas goodies you can buy, but if you’re here for the hunt only I recommend you grab the Hunt Map Hud which are easy to spot.  This Hud shows you a simple map of the whole sim and where the Bunnies are to be found.

getlost2

There are only a handful of shops on this sim and I know from my many previous visits this is a sim which changes with the seasons to make it a beautiful place to visit at any time of year but the whole sim is done out in this thick crunchy dreamy snowscape.

getlost3

This is the little Bunny you’re looking for.

getlost5

I only managed to locate 4 prizes but thats only because I managed to stay for such a short time.  These super cute teddy glasses are one and also the dress.  What I’m not showing you is the lovely crunchy snood and you can just about make out the Christmas socks, with SLink feet applier.  Even with my over stuffed invent I’m going back for more as there are some delightful jumpers, skirts, toys and poses I really want.

getlost7

This is just a delightful sim with a massive 35 Bunnies waiting to be found.  The prizes come from shops such as Pilot, Flowery, Tee*fy, Boogers etc etc all big SL names.

OK have to confess and say for me it was a bit “lag hell” which is why I only grabbed the 4 items and just TPed out. This hunt has only just started and goes onto the 31st so I’m going to bide my time and pop back when it’s quieter so I can not only enjoy this beautiful sim more but grab more of the goodies.  As I’ve said even with my stuffed invent there are some pretty clothes and cute decor and fun items just waiitng to be found.

The Inspiration Hunt

Blogging SL, Uncategorized, Virtual Fashion Feed

Yeah at last.

Still “trapped” waiting for Mr Postie to arrive but I mooched around SL and then check my notes and groups and just as I was about to give up a notice came through from Blah Blah Blah.  In my opinion a perfect Christmas Hunt in that it’s easy to find the hidden Christmas tree, they’re scattered around the shops and sim but are still within a small area and the pressie are worth finding.

blah

The shoes are mine but I’m pretty sure that there will be a pair in this SLhunt.  I simply grabbed about 5 hunt items and one Dollarbie and the Crimbo gift from under the tree and unpacked.  There is a really great pair of low slung cropped pants with a wide belt that I particularly liked and a “glitter” dress which is actually pretty classy and of course this top and these cropped pants.  Both come with colour changing Hud very impressed with them both.  I should maybe have used a lighter colour for the top so you can see that it has creases and lines which give it more definition.

So sorry can’t remember which was a hunt item which was the Gift under the tree and I found a hidden Dollarbie next to one of the hidden trees so there may even be more Dollarbie hidden one thing for sure is when I get back inworld I will be going back and finding as many as I can but the clues are pretty easy to follow and the little tree’s you’re looking for are a nice spotable size.

The hair is of course a Minas and it’s called Selenia  (and the skin a PumeC LOL).  Honestly when I’m chosing a hair I DO try on more than Mina’s hair, I love so many other hair shops and my invent is stuffed with hairs  but I just keep on comming back again and again to Minas hair.  This one is a simple long hair which because it goes over the shoulders allows you to show off your top but also to wear long hair.  However this is also only available at the Arcade event.  If you don’t want to try your hand at Pot Luck then of course there are ooodles of Gacha Yardsales which a lot of people, me, look forward to so we can pick the exact colour we want.

PS now I’m inworld grabbing the LM it looks like the Dollarbie is part of the “feel my sack hunt” and yes you can have a dirty snigger, what you’re looking for is a little red sack.  I’ll give you the starting LM for that as well.
