All the Free things !

FINALLY got into the Shop Your Heart Out event – three days of trying! I whizzed around and as I’m on a tight budget currently I avoided looking at any treats ~le-sigh~. My top picks of the gifts are right here – but there is so much I prolly forgot to nab a few! Above is the simply fabulous dress from Giz Seorn – mesh body fits galore. Also the Astra hair by Truth with allllll the Huds for colours. My boots are from Oh Pair – free to group members. Now when I joined I could’ve sworn the group was free to join – but Zan popped over and noticed it is now $75L to join – howeverrrrr this months group gifts are THREE pairs of boots/shoes – great deal !

These are the other pair of group gift boots from OhPair – mesh feet fits only. There was another pair of booty/sandals but no SLink Physique fit booo – really nice though.

Love love love this shirt from The Secret Store – dead cute and a  great fit as always. Choker is from Rebel Hope and the hair is the gift from Magika – absolutely adore this style! I still haven’t unpacked a lot of the gifts I snaffled up – should be easier to get in now – have fun !

Coffee time.(Freebie ‘n’ Bargains ‘n’ Pocket Gacha)

A bit of a random selection here of free, cheap & Gacha.

Vanity shot.

The dress is a freebie from a shop called ISHARA.  There is a whole selection of freebies but for different free to join groups.  If the LM doesn’t take you to where the freebies are then they’re just inside one of the doorways to your left as you walk in.  This dress comes with a hud that allows you to change the colour of the top half.

I’d just slung these on to have something on my feet but even though I know they’re oldies because they still looked good I decided to check out the Mirus mainshop and didn’t see them in there however they’re on the Marketplace shop for only 10Lds. You get the 4 main mesh feet fits plus a 6 colour option Hud and they’re good work a day shoes.

Lia is the long loose ponytailed and Anna is a loose tuck up at the nape of the neck version.  I’m pretty sure that both of them have the same top part and it’s the way the hair is at the back that is different.  They also have a superb option which has crept into a lot of Mina’s hairs and that’s the way the strands of hair hang down.  You have a total of 4 options, going from this top picture with all those loose strands hanging down framing my face to the bottom picture, which I’ve recycled, and in that one you can see I’ve used the lesser strand option so when wearing glasses you don’t get them breaking through or you simply can remove them all.  So 1 hair with 4 different ways of wearing it.

Wow not only are they great Mina hairs but they’ve turned out to be even greater bargains as they’re Gacha hairs!  Mina isn’t mean with her Gacha hairs and although in this case you don’t know if you’re going to get Lia or Anna but they’re shop quality hair not old stuff she doesn’t sell anymore but brand new designs that she could sell for full price in her shop and again although you have to risk it for the colour you do get a full large colour pack and not just a single shade and all of that for a measly 75Lds!

I know people love their Mina Gacha wins because in all the years I’ve trawled Yardsales I’ve only ever come across a Mina hair pack for sale about twice so people aren’t getting rid of what they have won and I know I’ve said it many times but some of my fav Mina hairs are Gacha wins and if you want to check them out they’re all just inside of her shop and of course Demo’s available.

By now most people will have seen the “Pocket Gacha” terminals.  If Gacha’s couldn’t get more addictive they have now because this is a hud means you don’t have to trawl through a laggy event, or TPed from shop to shop you can just sit down in your home, platform, hangout spot and open your hud and shop away.  It’s super easy to use, had nice little features which allow you to see your favourite designers first etc so if you’ve not tried it out yet check out the Mina’s mainshop as the LM takes you not just to the demos for these 2 hairs but there is aPocket Gacha Hud terminus right there and you can pick up a copy have a seat and just try it out.

PS if you’re in the Mina Group which I do believe only costs 200Lds not only is there a large selection of men/women/unisexed hairs she now has a New Group Gift out.

A bit of everything!(Oodles of Freebies).

Blimey! If you join the free Vive 9 group you will find 3 big bags of freebies from the Vive 9, Ryvolter and Fiore shops, I think they’re all owned by the same lady or are connected in some way, and each bag is stuffed with goodies.

I’ve only scratched the surface but there is such a variety of stuff everything from hair (not worn), shoes, boots, bags, stoles, outfits, hair and even a kitchen sink! Although the sink is in the skybox you get and yes I’m posing in it lol.

I’m only just wearing a few of the things although most for me will be binned I’ve come across some really nice keepers (wearable and rezzable make up case for one) so I can’t imagine a nicer way to waste time than sitting on my platform and unpacking and sorting through all of this stuff.  I also have to mention that a few things are old Gacha wins and are still set at non-copy and trans so a really nice way to pick up some gifts for friends/loved ones.

The LM takes you to the Vive 9 shop but I couldn’t find the gifts in the shop itself, however, I checked the group notices and they’re in there so if you can’t find them in any of the 3 shops you can just snag them from there.

PS.  I have a feeling that this is usually a paid for group so I would make this first on your “to-do” list when you get inworld.

Blessed Relief.(Freebies & Bargain).

I don’t hide from RL problems in SL but being able to come inworld to just chill and switch off even if it is just for a short time is just such a relief.  Don’t worry it’s not me who’s ill but my partner but don’t worry because he’s home now and doing OK and DRIVING ME F**KING NUTS!……inhales deeply…..and he won’t share his “happy pills” with me the mean sod LOL.

Anyhow when I logged in the first 3 things I noticed was the tinkling of Crimbo music, the mini-map was showing that Faith has waved her magic wand and now our sim is all white and snowy and a lovely note off  one of our readers with a link to some SUPER Freebies and even as I was taking pictures of some of those freebies another one of our regular readers and hint giver IMed me and we had a lovely chat and she also has given me the links to some tasty stuff.

We/I always appreciate any heads up on freebies/bargains/events etc we may not blog them but that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate the heads up at all, it might be because of lack of time, better finds, we’ve already done em etc

Anyhow this Heads up this time took me to a shop called Lunaria(if I’ve got the spelling wrong, sorry) which has a really good wall of free landscaping stuff.  I actually grabbed the lot but because the sim is now in full winter mode I’ve just slapped a couple of items out and the rest I will unpack at my leisure.

The LM takes you to a shop and in fact right next to the gifts and lucky boards but it also looks like “Lunari” is also a rental place.  If you’re looking for a winter home you might find this is a nice place so again check that out. I might just do that myself when time allows it.

So I quicky TPed home and literally just threw a few of the freebies down, the tree, archway and that patch of purple shrubs are just 3 examples of the gifts.

You can see the purplely flowers better now.  Everything is low primmed ie 2 for the tree and arch and 1 for the flowers.  I didn’t bother changing our sim setting now but all the greenery/autumnal colours will be going and a windlight setting to show off the cold winter settings will be used.  I’ve just remembered one of the freebies I picked up is a seasonal changing shrub set so although everything on our sim inc these new freebies will be packed away I know there is at least some which will be suitable for the Winter season.

There is some free clothing and Lucky boards and I did pick up a free outfit but again time is my enemy so I’m only just showing what I had time to unpack but I can’t wait to check the rest out.

But check out the outside of the shop because they have a lot of what I presume is a mix of free and for sale items(?).

That black shrub with the sparkling white dots only cost 75Lds for the pack and you get it in rows big and small and shrubs etc so you know I bought it as  I can just see that stark black with the glowing dots look stunning against a white background.

Sorry apart from Kylee I’ve forgotten the name of the person who dropped me the note for all of this stuff but they know who they are, and I might just do an update so I can add their name because I truly appreciated it.

PS Don’t ignore those 2 chests on the floor, both are marked at 0Lds and are going to be a nice surprise when I get back inworld.

OH FFS! (Super Hunt).

If you smoke or drink have one for me, I don’t do either, because between losing half my invent, being a pretty little pink cloud and being trapped in LAG HELL SL for me has been one rather big pain in the rear end.  Invent sorted and I’m back to my usual glorious self and the lag calmed down enough for me to snag this.

So of course at the moment there are so many hunts big and small going on at the moment it really is hard to pick and choose but CHOOSE this one!  It’s the “Once upon a nightmare hunt” and the list of contributors is the “Creme de la Creme” of SL and Caboodle is one of the shops listed and this was my first one to go to.

The shiny leather pants are the hunt gift, super sleek n sexy and you get 2 colours this fantastic copper/ginger and the other is a red, blood red I do believe.  Sadly you only get the 2 fits and although you can’t see it in this pose there is a definite gap at the waistline on the front but a belt or a longer top would cover that up a treat BUT as I was rummaging through my invent muttering like a mad woman I spotted a SLink Physique folder I’ve not really paid much attention to but I do believe it actually is a way of being able to wear non SLink clothes and create your own Alphas for that.  I could be totally wrong as I just glanced at it but it’s something I should check out…if I can find the folder again!

Anyhow, the Hunt prize is free BUT if you have 25Lds to spare then you must join the Caboodle group as there is a row of Lucky Boards at the back of the shop with some excellent gifts and more Group gifts behind the reception desk which inc the top I’m wearing.  This top comes with a Hud and there is also a great skirt both as GG’s as well as in the Lucky Boards that make a set with the top. The wearable Christmas lights I do believe are new and you get his n hers set.  Sorry though the Lucky Boards and this top and other GG’s aren’t new so if you already have them there will be no surprised for you BUT if you don’t have any of the Luckyboard wins HAUL YOUR AV ASS OVER THERE.  Really nice gifts in the boards and also with the Group Gifts.

Back to the Hunt.  What you’re looking for is a little stack of 3 gift boxes and I have the link to all the LMs also another Link to pictures and hints.

PS. In the shops involved in this hunt there is a super handy Hud for you to use this will TP you to each store you want to go to.

PPS. You will see from the second link I’ve given that there is a massive list of shops and not just the few shown in the first link so you’d better free up some time to go huntin’
