First deconstruction of the year.(Freebies).

Just as I was binning all my finds from this mornings freebie hunting a note came through from Searlait Nitschke who owns Roawenwood about something called “a circle of giving” and this is where a group of shops have just dropped off some nice gifts for anyone to come and grab so I went and grabbed.

This rug looks familiar to me, I’m also pretty sure I still have it because it comes with a texture changing option and you get 1 rug with poses in it.  Perfect size for small areas and really good natural scrunching.  The cupcake is super Kawaii and although it has snowflakes on it I see no reason to have that out all year round.  The fruitcakes again come in 2 options this decorated one and a plainer one for all year round use.

This is what I tore apart.

Lovely colours with light floating twinkling lights.  I started to take it apart to see if I could remove the only real Winter/Christmas item which is the small Holly you can see at the bottom right but sadly you cannot just remove that as it’s attached to the pots….but that didn’t stop me from removing the pots just to leave those plants.

I didn’t deconstruct it anymore but even so this little clump of flowers, 3prims, really do stand out so either keep them exactly as they come in the original pots (4 prims) or break them down pop them into your own pot or in your garden or just take the 1 or 2 little plants

All of the gifts are scattered on the pile of snow you will find at the LM, although not every box seemed to contain a gift there was plenty of them to keep me out of trouble. There are lots of other things that I’m just not showing you, there is some clothing, a floral headdress, more decor items etc and I don’t think I even got everything that’s there so click away my friends and have fun unpacking and sorting your way through it.

PS use this LM, not the usual Roawenwood one as it takes you directly to the gifts plus I think Searlait Nitschke is actually going to be dropping off other gifts at this LM.

I’m FREEEE!(Lots of FREEBIES).

Woo Hoo the whole sim is mine now!!! So I can streak around, rezz whatever I want, leave my pose balls, toys and clutter everywhere eating all the prims up Woo Hoo….OH Wait I already do all that!

For a Christmas, pressie Faith came up with a great idea a couple of years ago and because of her Gacha Addiction she has so much she doesn’t want or need so she pops in a box all the sort of Gacha wins she knows I would have loved to win so I got my Chrimbo pressie last night off her and weirdly it’s just as much fun to get Gacha wins sent to me as it is paying and winning them.

OK Now for the FREEBIES and there are so many I’ve given up unpacking them.  I wasn’t going to do the “Paying it forward” thing because I thought you had to TP from one shop to another and I “ain’t got no time for that” but silly me because the gifts are set out on the stalls at the “Paying it forward” event.  So I ran around grabbing away only to pause to make sure I filed all of them into a folder so I can find them again.

The cute nose and antlers (male version inc), the lovely knitted jumper and matching panties, the sofa with video game poses are just a small example.

This cape is a good example of the quality you get.  As always lots of little bits ie jewelry, scarves etc but what I’ve opened so far I can see this is keepers for people who wear those sorts of things.  It’s gonna hurt to trash them but since I rarely wear accessories it’s no good keeping them but I also spotted clothing and home decor in an equal amount so there is deffo something for everyone.

Just a reminder that no matter how good a piece of clothing looks TRY the demo first! I was just about to click and buy something but at the last moment I thought nope get the demo and I’m glad I did as it didn’t have a fit for my shape.

Paying it forward.

No copying!(Freebie & Bargain).

If I’m correct I think about 80% of the grass we have out on our sim is from SR(Sweet Revolutions) but if I’m wrong the one thing I’m sure of is I own so many of the plants and trees from this shop I could cover our whole sim in just SR landscaping if I wanted to.

I went over there because SR is part of a Hunt but I also knew that I would end up buying something because you just can’t not.  I didn’t actually even start looking for the Hunt prizes as the NEW November group gift was more than enough.

This stunning and massive tree is the freebie and is ONLY 3 prims! As always you have a small plot of land then this will fill it with hardly any impact on your prim allowance or if you have a bigger plot then rezz away.

Again since our sim is still gloriously Autumnal, and yes I checked and so much of the grass is SR grass, I just rezzed a handy snowy platform and took a picture in our sim setting.

But of course, I did end up buying something but at 30Lds honestly cheap as chips.

This is another large 3 prim tree.  If you’re wondering what that spikey thing is one of the dead roots of this tree which like the tree in the top picture there is as much going on at the base of these tree’s as there is on the top.  I’m not sure if I will keep the bases of the tree’s as they are and I do know they’re editable but the editing will be limited.  I could and probably simply lower the tree’s so the bases are buried under the sim.

Just look at that texturing.  Those almost frond-like branches will make a great contrast against a snowy backdrop.

Both the Group Gift and this 30Ld offer are non-copy so you only get the 1 to play with, nothing to stop you from grabbing a few copies of the GG though but tbh the full priced packs of landscaping plants, rocks etc are pretty reasonably priced in any case and some come with things like season changing menu’s etc.

There is much more there than just landscaping as this is a shop which is aimed at the Gor/RP/etc and the whole sim is decorated in a dark and mysterious way for you to wander around.

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.

Overloaded. (freebies).

Awww another Happy Birthday and this time it’s The Instruments.  I can actually remember blogging the very first event and it’s come along way since there and so in celebration of its second birthday oodles of gifties for us all.

The dress and hat are gifts and the pretty box I’m carrying is one of the delivery packages I just used it and the pose it came with to take a quickie pic.

XXXinstrumentsuse

There are lots of bags which although they aren’t my thing as I don’t even remember to put on undies let alone accessories my look lol, however I am a decor nut and so of course I rezzed them and then prim checked to see if I could use them as decor items in my Boudoir and yup the ones I rezzed were only 1 prim and not lacking in any detail at all!  As soon as I got this dress I stopped unpacking and did my posing as it also means that when I rezz back inworld there is some nice surprises for me and of course since I’m not showing you everything some nice surprises for you as well.

This is a lovely well set out courtyard with stalls and everything is so easy to find but of course I checked out whats on sale and I picked up some wacky hair demos to try on soon and a few excellent potted plants for my home, not free, so you too may find something new to tempt you.

PS I think that when you rezz inworld you will be facing the wrong way.  So simple turn around and you can’t miss it.

Sunday Brain! (New Mina hairs & Oodles of FREEBIES).

DOH!  I did this post yesterday and just as I was bragging to a friend how good my internet is my internet crashed! Typical but it’s now Monday and I’m up and running and yes I am clutching wood as I type this.

If you scroll back through my last few posts you might just have noticed that I am wearing a new Mina hair, ok probably not as this hair, Marion, is pretty subtle from the front.  A simple middle parting with the hair going down either side of your face but as you can see from the back this hair goes right down to your waist.  As always I’ve stuck to the standard me colour, brown in SL brown in RL LOL but of course you can chose any hair colour pack you want.

XXXRoleVela

Marion is from the latest round of Hairology which is a really nice little event, loads of fresh new designs but not so many you get overwhelmed and  give up half way and miss out on something new for your invent.

I also finally managed to get my sorry AV Ass over to the “We love roleplay” event which is having it’s 3rd Birthday in SL and you know what SL Birthdays means?…FREEEEEBIES!  Oooodles and ooodles of them.  Almost each stand has a giftie set out for us to snag and of course I snagged and snagged and then gave up.  Honestly so many goodies I just didn’t have enough time to grab them all and unpack etc I literally just walked straigth ahead then turned right and after a few more stalls that side I just ran out of time so can you imagine how much is still there waiting to be grabbed.  I do know there seems to be a wonderful mix, plenty of jewelry and accessories but also lots of decor items.  I didn’t actually come across any free clothes,which is why I am naked..yeah right LOL any excuse.

XXXRolep

Not the hair though, just in case you thought it was.  This hair is another Mina’s but it’s not available yet but the reason I am showing you it now and not in a couple of days when the Tres Chic event is up and running is because this hair, Faith is very similar to another hair called Bridget which I have already shown to you. Bridget is from what I can see simply a shorter version of this hair and because “Faith” isn’t available yet I thought I would mention that Bridget is now in the mainshop but it’s a Gacha.  If you want a super bargain and not to set on a particular colour, you do of course get a colour pack just not of your choice, then you may want to try it.  Not 100% sure but I am pretty sure it’s only 75Ld a pop but check it out first and of course there is a Demo of Bridget and if you like Bridget but don’t want to risk the colour pack you get then give it a day and go try the Faith version @Tres Chic when it’s opened tomorrow but that one I do believe will be the standard full price.

So apart from the hair everything else is free.  The excellent backdrop/draped wall decor behind me which has 2 sides, this earthy painted look and the back is black.  And look closely at the leafy brown/ginger plant.  This is stunning, it’s a pretty tall and light from…nope sorry can’t remember but I promise I will try to put an update at the end.

The biggest Freebie I found so far is the skin, don’t clean your glasses I have pixellated the nips LOL.  This skin came off the Plastik stall.  You only get 2 skins but also a whole FAT PACK of addons and Appliers, everything from lipsticks to a “nipless” skin.  I will admit something though, because the backdrop was so dark I edited the picture a bit and it has slightly changed the skin colour.  The skin has a slightly dusty ethereal look to it which is actually in keeping with the style of the Plastik shop.  It’s been a while since I was last over there so time to check it out….once I’ve been back to the I love to RP event of course.

XXXRole

A couple of hints though, I snapped this picture at the RP event and as you can see the windlight is stunning so change it LOL.  It’s hard to see the lovely stuff here in such a dark setting so once you’ve admired it change to a lighter setting.  The other big thing to do is click everything because some of the Freebies are pretty obviously in their little gift boxes or bags but  a lot are a picture on the wall or just in another object.  Plus not everything is free I did pick up a few 10Ld items but it looks like most of them are set at 0 but make sure if you have to be super careful with your Lindens.

But remember to treat yourself.  A lot of items here are discounted and I ended up grabbing so many demos and I also treated myself to a stunning head dress which only cost 35Lds so this event has something for everyones wallet.

Tree is from the E.V.E stall and trust me it’s worth a visit for that alone.

Backdrop/drape is from the Unkindness stall.

Making a decision(Freebies).

I’ve finally made a decision on my new SL home. I change SL homes more than my RL hairstyles, so in these pictures I’m using my new home as a backdrop as it will soon be filled with clutter, clutter and more clutter.  Actually I’ve just had a funny thought as this house is much bigger than the one I have set up now so I could simply rezz it over my existing home and then delete that and just move my decor items into place, only in SL lol.

I did such a quick and simple hunt “Chicken Egg Hunt” yesterday and it was so relaxing but the hunts organised by Fiona Scorfield (and her Minions) are usually so enjoyable because on her blog you not only get the LM’s but also easy Hints and pictures of the prizes so for the hunt hopeless like me it couldn’t be simpler.

XXXurbblue2

Faith might just recognise this home as it’s a classic Scarlet Creative build but of course I snagged this one when it was a Collab88 offer which means it was at a seriously discounted price.

XXXurbblue3

This dress was my first find and it’s the one from Fiscreations (sic).  A simple strapless dress, nice texturing, fit etc.

XXXurbblue

These sneaker wedges are from the CuCu Clothes shop and I’m pretty sure that I did a post about a great freebie from them not long ago.

This is a  nice little hunt with a mix of clothes and decor

OK not everything will be to your taste BUT I often find that shops involved in one hunt usually have a few going on at the same time and I know the 2 shops I popped into did have more than this one hunt on.  So you may not like the prize for that particular hunt or need it but you never know what other nice surprises there maybe waiting for you.  Also I find a lot of new shops to visit through hunts and in one case, The Shabby Tabby Shop, the shop has been changed and it’s set up in the very same Scarlet Creative house I’m stood in and as I was walking through the shop apart from noticing there is a lot of new stock I was also reminded of how good this house looks and the rest is history.  So the lesson is even if you don’t like the prize in that particular hunt these shops are still well worth a visit.
