Do you trust me?????? (50Ld GG’s more than I’m showing you).

I just wanna have fun so I’ve played with editing but “trust me” not just the 2 items I’m showing you but all the GG’s I picked up from Una’s ARE shop quality.

This outfit is the “Dulenceia” and you get 6 shades in total, 2 light ones and 4 dark and rich shades.  The other outfit I picked up is the similar one but with a short skirt and that’s called “Ambrosia Corset” and that one comes in 5(or 6) super colours and extra ribbons to wear. The last item of clothing I picked up is a dress called “Grace”, this dress only comes in the 1 size but it fitted me easily and I should imagine it will fit most shapes and .his also comes with 6 shades.

There is more there than the 1 I’ve shown you and the 2 I’ve described and also there is a pair of shoes in the ribboned box.  I think it’s marked clearly what the sizes are but it doesn’t tell you that you get the Fat Packs for the colours so that was a lovely surprise..I even like the purple and blue shades!

Mixed in with the clothes are some fun items such as this book landscaping pack.  A mix of books that lie on the ground to create a path and those oversized ones for decor are pretty low primmed.  The path is just 4 prims and each book is just 1.

So a bit of a mixed bag but you won’t be disappointed.  There is also some lucky boards with prizes well worth hanging around for plus either a 25Ld Tue or 30Ld Sat offer which was very tempting.

PS.  Forgot to mention the dress I am showing you is gulp, pantiless! Which means you either have to wear your own or go commando.

I’m finished clicking. (Mention of sooooooo many freebies but not shown).

I’ve just turned a bit of the landscaping on our sim into Autumn colours but I’m going to stop as I want to ease into the new season and not go crashing in.  So once I’d finished doing that I popped over to the Redeux event and we all know this event so well because of the MASSIVE amount of gifts which are set out for us.  I’ve not started to unpack yet but when I log back in I’m going to spend a pleasant afternoon unpacking, sorting and yes, of course, binning my way through the lot and I will LOVE every minute of it.

But of course the gifts are set out to tempt us in but they’d like us to buy and buy I did! In the end I spent over 500Lds on things that tempted me inc these shoes.

“Dorothy” is on the NOIR stand and didn’t cost me 500Ld only 35Lds add to that a lovely colour hud which allows you to change the shoe and bow but not the off-white part on your toes.  You get fits for all main mesh feet plus a “material” and “non-material” version which is not a common feature, although I do have to say that all Mina’s hair comes with this option.  The “non-material” version is kinder on people who have slow running computers but I have to say it took me a long time to work that out as sometimes it’s hard to even notice a difference.

Then I picked this up from the Simply Shelby shop.  I’ve seen this umbrella plant a few times as of course Simply Shelby is one of those shops that has an awful lot of excellent discounted item out on a regular basis.  Taken in my sim setting and it’s 8 prims.  I’m pretty sure this cost either 25, 30 or 35Lds because I bought so many things I forgot the exact price tag.

I know for sure this cost me 50Lds.

Just the cooker and not the drying rack.  I rezzed it quickly to check it out and love it and because it’s only 3 prims I will leave it there for the moment.  Sad to say I have a whole folder of cookers but when I spot something different I just can’t help myself.  Velvet Whip is the stand/shop for this item.

So LOTS of really good gifts at this event but make sure to check out the other items for sale because a lot of them have very discounted items on them and there is an excellent mix of clothes, decor, landscaping, fantasy, realistic goodies for everyone.

UPDATE.  I forgot to click “Publish” and so now I’ve had time to unpack all of the gifts I can only say, make sure you go!  So many “ooo’s” and “aaah’s” to be found, a BIG Thanks needs to be said to the shops/designers who have been so generous.

I have cake & a super sim decor bargain

I got a New RL bread maker last night so today I have made 2 loaves, 1 cake and a pan of Jam, or as you Yanks say “jelly”, and since the sun has struggled out from behind the clouds I’ve been lazing like a Lady of Leisure in my garden feeding my fat face.  It goes without saying I’ve eaten too much bread and cake and now I feel bloated and sad!

I’ve mentioned the 25Ld Tues offers before, just sub to one of the shops involved in it and you should get sent out a note with the LM’s and shops involved in that weeks 25Ld Tue offer.  Most of the shops involved are more towards the RP/Rustic/Gor/Medieval SLers BUT do NOT let that put you off if this isn’t your thing.  I’ve found some excellent decor items for my sim and home and occasionally an outfit which I couldn’t resist.

I have to admit that once I get my hands on the list I quickly scan it to see if my Fav shops are in the list and this week DD (Dysfuntionality Design) were on the list so that was my first place to TP over to and check out these low primed pretty floating Chinese lanterns.

XXXHome1

You get the 5 colours shown, copyable and only 1 prim each so you can rezz as many of these as you wish.

XXXHome3

Super simple menu with them just rezz  on the ground click on it and you get 2 tabs the first is to choose how wide or how close you want the lantern to float to where you rezz it and the other to activate it and once you click that it just floats away.  Being able to choose to keep it in a restrictive area means you can rezz these even on a small plot and of course again you can rezz just the single lantern or as many as you wish.

If you’ve never been to DD (Dysfunctionality Designs) then you must go, I’m pretty sure there is some decor freebies there but it’s been a long time since I’ve checked, but go for the fruit n veg because you will find some of the best, realistic and low primed fruit n veg planting you will find in SL.  Very reasonably priced as well esp for such exc quality.

How good is this! I know that there is a quick redelivery system here at DD but as I was LM grabbing, it doesn’t take you direct to the 25Ld offer but look on the ground and there are signs that lead you right to it, but I also decided to splash out and I’ve bought some grasses, bunnie rabbits and other items for our sim inc a stunning rose-bush which comes with a colour hud etc but I’d forgotten I’d already bought it so I paid my 125Lds which is shockingly cheap for such quality and I got it returned to me!  Took me a second to realise, and check my invent, that I already own these roses and so it wouldn’t let me buy something I already own! How good is that!

Vogueing MAD!

I always say “save to spend” and as much as I would like to say to you this is free this sadly is most definitely a “SPEND”.  As it happens I popped into !gO to check something out (Bargain Gacha Event) and checked any credit I may have, which I did, so I decided to have a wander around and as soon as I spotted this fantasy outfit it was going to be MINE!

XXXVogue2

To me this is what Second Life is all about, it’s being something you could never be in RL, even if that is a big boobed/butt sl*t or a little furrie or even slimmer and fitter than the real you.  As a history buff the era of the Sun King is something I would love to experience, as long as I was rich Royalty and not a poor serf!  So the chance to put on a big hipped, high hair outfit and go sauntering was worth the relatively few Lindens this look cost.

XXXVogue1

A “bum” shot just for fun.  You can’t get this outfit in the !gO shop as it’s only available at the I<3 Role Play event and at this event it is discounted by 25% but it still costs 366Lds so by my maths, which is rubbish, I think that means when it’s in the mainshop it will be around the 400Lds mark so grab it while it’s cheaper.

To me this is well worth every Lindens for some amazing texturing and just pure feminine indulgence.  I have played with the pictures a bit and damn it has been a lovely morning preening and posing and just sauntering around SL looking gorgeous, but rest assured this outfit doesn’t need any help to look glorious.  Actually my only annoyance was you have a rack of different colour choices in the gowns and I struggled as to which one to buy because I wanted them ALL!  So I played safe with the champagne one.

Another sorry here because the amazing hair/hat combo doesn’t come with the dress and you will have to pay more Lindens for it but again check this out.

XXXVogue

At 185Lds it’s actually a pretty good bargain because you get not just 4 hair colour options but also the 4 hair/ hat combinations plus a wearable hat on it’s own, which of course means you can wear that hat with another hair you may have in your invent and if that wasn’t enough you actually get a Hud for the hat which allows you to change the colour of the brim, roses and ribbons.  Don’t worry demo for the dress and hat are available for you to try for yourself.

!gO is a group you must pay to join but if I remember correctly because !g0 is a group I have been a member of for several years but I do believe it’s at a sheer token price of 50Lds but if it has gone up it’s still worth it (I’ve had a chance to check and yes it’s still just a one off fee of 50Lds to join).  There isn’t a New GG out at this moment but there is always a shop quality gift set out and often a New Item for sale has one specific colour reduced in price for !g0 groupies.  Remmeber to wear your tag as well to earn your credits which is what paid for my hat at least.

!gO has unique designs and texturing, you won’t find anything here in other shops and the pricing for uniquness is a really fair price again add to that the great GG’s and discounts and although Christmas is well over the Christmas Advent Calendar is an event in itself with the damned generous and quality items for us !gO’s

XXXVogue3

As it happens when I went back to !g0 to LM grabbed I remembered it was the Bargain Gacha event that I was going to check out so I’m giving you the LM for that.  Lots of pirate items and I was very pleased to win myself a stunning peasant outfit.

PS This is a new LM for this event so use mine and not an old one and since I can’t give you the direct LM to the !gO stand just grab the map or follow the sign post to the end and turn left and you will find it.

Tacked on! (Freebies).

I’d popped into Noble Creations, a shop which is for those who are into their Medieval, Fantasy SL lives this is a place to die for, actually even if you’re not the quality of the items here would fit into any home.  I’ve spotted a fantastic well and fountain that I want to check out but since  they’re only available at the Fantasy Faire which basically is so packed at this moment I can’t get onto the sim but I’m hoping the prim and price are so reasonable because I can see them on our sim.  However I was so happy with the New Freebies, and I was also happy to see the old Freebies were also still out as they’re well worth picking up as well.

I might keep the first two items but probably just as props but the moment I rezzed the free standing steps it was a BIG YES off me! I have a couple of builds which are missing steps upto them and I can see this little beauty fitting them perfectly.  I don’t think this picture is showing the real size of these steps I think they’re looking  a bit small almost foot stool size which they’re not but I’m hoping that you can mod them in anycase so they can be fitted to so many things.  Even better all the quality in these items comes at a single prim count!

Not a vast collection in this shop which is a shame as again the quality of the texturing is so good but there is enough to furnish your whole house but I also have to mention the fabric draped bath tubs a common enough design in SL but these ones are unqiue

Reach for the stars (hunt)

Strawberry Carriage - Hunt gift

I saw a hunt advertised and off I went to investigate. It’s the Star Search hunt, and its pretty easy as the stars aren’t all that hidden. This is a paid hunt, meaning each “prize” you find costs a few $, only $10L so quite the bargain really.

Now, I’m not one to complain usually, especially about gifts and hunts, but if you’re going to charge something for a hunt prize and its more than $1, and you’re not giving any previews of the gifts contained on a blog or something – please please please don’t label your prize “hunt gift” inside the box ! If I am going to spend my precious dosh on your stuff, yes, even just $10L, Id like some sort of idea of what it is first. Is it going to be useful or amusing to me ?, I don’t like to feel tricked into buying something, and trust me – because it’s a “hunt” wont make me part with my lindens willy nilly – ok moan over back to our normal coverage. Wardrobe Malfunction (they said it was a carriage on the box – so I went for it yay!) have this fun strawberry shaped carriage as their prize. Its got singles and couples poses inside and two single poses on the drivers seat. So beautifully done, the interior is rather plushhhhh and the little light even switches on and off – dead chuffed with this. You’re looking for pink stars, some in stores some scattered around the sim – have fun ❤

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.
