I’M SO SORRY! I’m just a complete and utter BABBLER!  !(Freebie ‘n’ new Mina).

Let me sum up this post because I just can’t help but going overboad with the Babbling! So the next sentence will sum it all up nicely for you and you can miss the rest.

Free Dress for all at Mirus, New Mina hair @Blush and Discounted hairs@Mina and all links at the bottom so feel free to scroll.

When they said it would snow I thought they were April Fooling us but guess what…they weren’t and it’s a nasty, gray, cold day with ploppy wet snow ruining everything.  So I’ve cranked up the heating and nestled down for a day of doing nothing…and for a while that inc SLing but then I remembered that yesterday I along with EVERY OTHER CHEAP B* had TPed over to Mirus to grab this Free for all freeby.  Since the notice did say it was only for a limited time I decided that I would pop in as I would hate for anyone to miss it.

Check out the pert boobies, I love outfits that give you perkies rather than gazungas LOL.

I almost didn’t go to get this because for some reason I thought it only came in 1 size and 2 colours, this cream and a black one, but I’m glad I did as it actually comes in plenty of sizes and colours/textures.  The board is just in the entrance to Miras and I think it’s calmed down now so should be easy to grab.

The hair is a new one from Mina’s and you get it from the Blush event butttttt the minute I put it on I knew that I already have a hair with very similar characteristics and I just had to hunt it down.  Don’t get me wrong this new hair, Maria, is different but what Mina Nakamura does is when she creates a style that works she works that style into another hair to create a bit like a Version 2 and sometimes it’s a lot better than Version 1 esp since now as standard her colour packs are so much bigger.  That also means the price tag is bigger but not unreasonably so and we all know the cost of great hair packs in most shops do on the whole retail for around the same price in any case.  I think they’re only cheaper when you get fewer shade options.  And of course a lot of Mina’s hairs now come with “options” which allow you to change the styling of your hair, quite often it’s the fringe, as in this case, or even in some cases you can have the hair coming down over 1 shoulder, 2 shoulders or just hanging down the back and all of that takes so much time and effort to create that you don’t mind paying what is not an unreasonable price.

Doesn’t mean to say in this case that great hair has to cost as the hair that I think has a lot of similarities to this new one is called Elin and you will find that hair upstairs in the discounted section of Mina’s main shop and that hair pack is the standard 5 shades, you obviously can chose which shade pack you want or even buy the fatpack at a discounted price as well because the standard pack is only 125Lds but I didn’t check out the price of the fat packs.  Lots of different colour packs to choose from as well.  I don’t know why “Elin” is up in the discounted section because she’s still as new and fresh as the day she was a new release I think it must be because that all of the newer Mina hairs come with the bigger shade colour packs as standard the time it would take to update her “old” stock just isn’t time effective which means WOO HOO for people who are on a limted budget because these cheaper hairs are still the best.

WOAH!

Check this out.

Not sure how I ended here at the entrance to the”Re:Japonica” event but it just gets better as you walk through the tunnel so check this out.

Woah again.  Taken just in the sim setting and no camera tricks this is a feast for the eyes.  So I quickly snapped a couple of pictures and then checked Seraphim to see if there is any info and of course there is.  So I will put the link to the Seraphim blog.

Freebies? I’m not sure because the one thing I’ve noticed with Seraphim is that they don’t dwell on any freebies but I can’t imagine a more pleasant way to spend a lazy sunday than just meanering around and of course the icing on the cake will be if there is freeness for us.

You might want to RUSH!(10Ld Giftie, Bargains and I think Freebies).

Sorry, I’ve been a RL Busy Bee but it was nice to get inworld and even nicer when this specially discounted skirt was the first thing I snagged.

You get a really good 10 colour hud, 5 shades and 5 patterns.

The reason you have to be quick is that the event this gift is available at is called E/M Events and opens it’s doors on the 1st of the month and then shuts it’s doors on the 15th of the month and it’s the 22nd of the month sooooooo I’m not sure if the few stalls that are there are ones that haven’t been packed up from the past event or have been set out for the next event so the long and short of it is if you like this skirt then TP now as it might not be there soon.

This cost 10Ld and I’m pretty sure that on the Pandora stall where I found it was another 10Ld gift and since the skirt turned out to be a winner I’m going back for that.  I do believe there are freebies because you will see circles with boxes in them and I think those are special gifts for different and free groups but I didn’t really linger to test that theory out, so check them out for yourself.

PS.  Not only my size and probably your size but there is even a “Werwolf & Fox” sizing!

UPDATE.  So I got the top which if you have a spare 10Lds I would suggest you get it. A simple band across your boobs, with off the shoulder straps, lacing and a 10 colour hud.  Although it can be worn to match the skirt I think it would look best with a bikini bottom or shorts.

Sorry, again, yet another rush job!(Mention of Freebies ‘n’ cheapies).

I decided to go to the Redeux event because I knew it has been running for long enough that it should be quiet now and it is, nice and quiet and lag-free just how I like it and then I spotted the end date and that’s TODAY!  But I have found from past experience that although these events do have a end date often they do continue on after that so you have not just today but probably tomorrow, the day after and maybe the day after that but I would go as soon as you can because there looks like not just a lot of exc discounted clothes, furniture, decor etc but oodles of GIFTIES!

This dress is not one of those gifties though but at 35Lds cheap as chips.

I actually bought this and picked up a couple of the freebies, as yet unpacked, and thats when I spotted the ending date so I decided to TP home try this one and do a quick post because this isn’t a small event and I just love spending a few hours in SL wandering a nicely landscaped event picking up a mix of stuff for free or even bargain prices.  As for this dress it’s off the Infinity stall which is right next to the LM, you only get the 1 fit but I think you can see that most if not all Alpha huds or just an Alpha you may in your invent will make it a fit for all.

A bit like me.(Freebie ‘n’ cheapie).

Another event with oodles of freebies and not a single bit of clothing to show you!

This is just for the bag, which is from the Petit Chat shop and the LM takes you to that shop.

That was me last night at a big shopping center, only with jeans, flat shoes, a coat and a harassed look on my face but with great hair.  The “Black Shop & Hop Event” as you can see is laid out just like a big shopping center and almost every shop has a giftie which takes me to the bag.

No close-up but it’s a great leather bag with a holding pose.  As you can see from the sign behind me there are some well-known brands here.

FREEBIE! Woah, a delightful Victorian gazebo/bandstand etc Really lovely texturing and you can have it with or without the snow and I can’t remember the exact prims but without the snow it was very low with the snow a lot higher. Without the snow, this will do all seasons and is a  really nice gift.

Paid for this but only 49Lds as it’s such a good prop for our sim.

I often buy things but don’t show you unless I think they’re such a good buy or in this case not only a great prop but a bargain.  For that you get the tree wrapper, those bundles of wrapped trees and the tree’s to the left of the picture are inc as well.  All low primmed and copyable.

This is a nice sized event  and although I can’t, at the moment, tell you which shop each item comes from the event is big enough to have a lot of interesting stuff but small enough that you can have a pleasant time just walking around grabbing the goodies, maybe treating yourself to something, unpack sort it out and still have time for a coffee before lunch.

Speaking of which I’m off out for lunch myself and if I have time when I get back I will get the details of which shop each item came from and I’ve picked up a few LMs for the main shops of some of the shops at this event as I want to check them out as well.

I’ve finally SNAPPED! (Freebies).

I had gone over to the SWANK event and looked and looked and looked some more wondering where the goodies were hidden but it was only when I returned at a later date for another try did I realise that you have to TP to a really lovely decorated Wintery are and under the tree are the gifts.  This TP is actually at the LM for SWANK, it’s on the floor just behind you.

Lots of clothes n stuff for sale but I paid more attention to the landscaping/decor items which are placed in the middle of the shop.  Personally, I’m done with landscaping, I don’t think our sim can hold any more snow, tree’s shrubs etc but I would have been tempted by some of what’s here if that wasn’t the case.

This coat/hat/glove set is one of the prizes and the lovely wintery setting at SWANK was going to be a perfect backdrop to show it off so I TPed back to the event and snapped, snapped, snapped some more till I finally SNAPPED! It’s a lovely setting but with all the flashing lights it was a nightmare to get a decent picture so I TPed back home and got the snap this outfit deserves. It also comes in so many sizes and the fuzz on the cuffs and hat doesn’t have to be worn if you want a simpler look.

BUT, once you’ve grabbed the gifts under the tree don’t rush home to unpack because you may notice that around this landscaped area are other scattered gifts.  I’ve only unpacked 2 items, this coat and I’m actually wearing earrings which are teeny tiny sparkling trees so cute!!!!

Dirty little stopper upperer!(Freebies).

Yes, I actually logged into SL at about 2AM just to see if I could grab the last remaining items from the Apple Fall sale and now I’m done.  Today is the last day so I will assume that you have some time to get in and grab and remember everything is priced between 25-75Ld and that inc the buildings(and my new home when I get around to it).

Then, since I am an SL addict, I popped over to the Hashtag event and it’s its Birthday and we all know what that means…CAKE AND JELLY!  Sadly no but lots and lots of FREEBIES.

I only grabbed about a quarter of what was there before I gave up and TPed home and started to unpack and of course started to bin away.  As usual, a lot of the small things but that’s not a bad thing at all.  I’m just not a tattoo or jewelry wearer so more often than not I bin it without unpacking it.  I like to just grab a load of stuff from a place to get the sense of the goodies and yes there are goodies to be found.

But as soon as I unpacked this bucket of flowers it was the “money shot”.

A Beeee a cute little Beee LOL.  Non-edit but copyable.  The only reason I would edit this is I would take copies of those gorgeous flowers and scatter them around my garden but as a stand alone potted plant this is just excellent.  I will do a quick log in to find the name of the stall/shop I found this one on at the Hashtag event so you can just go and grab this but as I said there are oodles of gifts on the stands and there is nothing nicer than grabbing a whole load of stuff and then plonking yourself down and working through them and finding the pieces which make fab additions to your inven

UPDATE. I think the bucket of flowers is off the “Dreamland Design” stall which is not a name I’m familiar with so woo hoo thats a mainshop for me to check out later.  If I’m wrong about the stall just GRAB ALL of the gifts and have fun finding it.

Then I decided to quickly check the Dreamland MP shop and found even more quality Freebies.

They turned out to be just as good as I had hoped but since SL time was running out I’ve just slapped 2 of the 3 freebies down and quickly took a snap.  I saw some window boxes in the MP shop but since these come with a price tag, cheap at 50Lds though, I will when I log back into SL pop over to the inworld shop to check them and the whole shop out.

This is why sometimes a quality freebie works as it gives people a taste of what you have and they might just come over and spend Lindens in your shop.
