Deeeeep Breath! (Dollarbie & Mention of Freebies).

Is it just me because sometimes it’s not really clear what it is you’re actually looking for when doing a hunt?  That’s the case with the “The Hoarders Hunt” and in the end, I TPed over to Storax Tree because I know this shop keeps all it’s hunt prizes, group gifts and special offers in the same place so I could not just grab the gift they have out for this hunt, it’s a lovely vase of flowers, but actually see what it was I had to look for…it’s a bag.  A little shoppers shoulder bag.

Then I TPed back to the Blonde Queen shop and finally (3rd attempt) found the hunt prize because I now knew what I was looking for and inside of the bag is this really good jacket.  You only get the Maitreya fit but that’s not an issue.

If you don’t like/want or need this jacket still pop over as there are a couple of new group gifts but you may or may not recognise one of them as it has been blogged by me to be exact and it’s a very bright pink and tight bodysuit, very nice but NMF (not my fit).

PS.  Don’t curse me but I can’t stand “Hello Kitty”…MEOW!!!

Pull up a seat.(Freebie)

This seat to be exact.

I’ve been to a couple of events and grabbed more LM’s which is how I ended up at “The Green Door” shop.

There are 3 Group Gifts but even though I was wearing the right group tag this is the only one which was sent to me but it was actually the main one I wanted….and that’s it…so far.

Prevaricating.(Freebies).

Yup, the day has only just started in RL but I don’t wanna adult today!  Going to do the least I need to do in the adulting world and then hide from it.

Then I remembered I’d forgotten to mention that the Loordes of London gifts is in a new delivery box which is a collection of candles on a platter which makes for a really lovely decor item and that brings me to a shop called Pomegranate.

Go on guess which is the gift and which is the delivery “box”?  Of course, it’s the big red Pomegranate that is the delivery box and inside are 3 really cute fabric covered pumpkins and I love fabric pumpkins but to me that delivery box is looking like a Blueberry…err or rather a big fat Redberry so I’m going to be scattering these around the sim.

The shop “Pomegranate” is full of cushions, if you need a particular colour, texture to match your decor this is the place as there is so many to chose from and or rugs, lots of em.  I think there is also a couple of hunts but check out the “notice board” and if you click on the notice board you get sent info on how to add your picture and a free cushion as well.

Time to log off and adult for an hour and hopefully when I’m back inworld I will find an “ooh” outfit.  If you have to adult today…DO IT LIKE A BOSS!

OH GOOD GRIEF! (Hunt).

OMG although I knew that there is an SL Frees and Offers hunt going on I had NO idea of how many amazing shops have put out a freebie for us.  When it comes to hunts I usually just scroll through the pictures and grab one or two items but you’re NOT going to see a post off me for days as the list of shops involved in this hunt is not only vast but I am going to visit each and every one of them!

This is just a prime example of one of the gifts but then again the Hilly Haalan shop is and has always been extremely generous with the GG’s and offers so in this case you not only get this coat in 4 colours and this bonus Olive colour but also the hair I’m wearing.  You and I know I am totally spoilt when it comes to Mina’s hairs but I’m loving this super shiny hair.  And yes you also get a choice of colours which I haven’t tried yet but this is the “ginger”.  Hold up there is more because you also get boots to match but I didn’t spot them till after I took this picture but wait! there is MORE because inc in the gift is 2 dresses and a pair of Uggs!  Not tried them on yet but by the time the weekend comes I will have a folder stuff with prizes and I can sit and relax as I work my way through the hoard.

The Link is to the SL frees and offers blog and there is a whole list of LMs and hints and what you’re looking for is an Autumn leaf.

A BIG FAT THANK YOU ♥ should go to the shops who have thrown themselves into this hunt but of course the team behind SL Frees and Offers because I know all too well how much time and effort it takes out of your daily lives to do this sort of thing and their dedication to the cause of cheapness lol means that we all benefit so greatly.  BTW from my quick scan of the list, it’s nice to see there are items for men and decor so something for everyone.

PS. Check out the Special Offers at the Hilly Haalan LM, there is a really lovely skater skirt/top combo which I think is 99Ld but I’m loving the textures and can see this is a perfect “go to” outfit.

IT’S MY DAY OFF FLUCKERS! (Cheapie ‘n’ Freebie).

Yes it is my day off and I’ve scraped the worst of the mess up, put the bin out for the bin men, fed the cats, turned up the fire, got a pile of snacks and mug of coffee and I’m settled for the day.

First is the “cheapie” which is just this skirt BUT the jumper is, of course, the same one in from my last post and I simply chose one of the many plain colours options you get in the hud.  When I was at the SWANK event I spotted the rows of Gachas and some of them were for a shop called “OA-M.E.O” and I have no idea of what that stands for.  The Gacha’s actually have some really interesting decor and clothing items in them but I resisted them and decided to pop over to the shop…yes to see if there were freebies of course.

The OA-M.E.O group does cost 20Lds to join but there is a mix of gifts for women/men and some decor item and just in case you miss it the vase with the purple flowers is also a gift. It was just this skirt which piqued my interest and in particular this very bright and pretty pattern.  As it happens I didn’t spot that you do get a hud and I can’t remember the colours so my best guess is it has 3 plain and 3 patterns in the hud.  Will I keep it?  I don’t know, do I regret paying the 20Lds? Hell no and even though it was just the 1 gift I picked up I am pleased with it but sometimes I don’t keep something not because I don’t like it but because I already have enough of a similar style so just don’t need it and that’s the case for this skirt.

A lovely heads up from Kiylee sent me to Kraftwork because they have a very interesting new GG of a backdrop which she knew I would love, and I do but this isn’t it lol.

This is set out with the other Group Gifts which a lot of you will have seen before, all of them are decor items, and of course the new one and this one which is new to me.

FYI, all of my pictures inc the skirt were just taken in the sims setting.  This is such a rich dark wood and those lights do set of a lovely warming glow and when I want a Classy AF backdrop this will be it BUT it’s not actually a backdrop as such.

Just for a giggle and because it’s editable I made a copy and shrunk it right down to tabletop size so you can see that all sides have been “stoned”.  This is because it is mainly intended as a landscaping item.  I can’t remember what it’s called but it’s something like “garden nook”.  In the picture used to show it off, there are chairs, plants, and other decor items to make this a nice and yes different outdoor room.  We don’t normally get a very formal looking wood used for garden rooms.  Full-sized it’s only 9prims and although you can shrink it down to a tabletop size I think the lowest prims is 6 both big and small are small enough in prims in any case.

It started so well! (Freebies).

Just as soon as I started to “Winterfy” our sim RL demanded some attention so I logged off, logged into RL and now I’m logged back into SL and RL can sod off, lol.

If you haven’t guessed I’m trying to look as though I’m singing!

I was just wandering around and ended up at ASO and the group gifts have been around for quite a while but this is the first time I’ve grabbed this hat to show you and that’s because one of our lovely readers reminded me about how I should check what hairs I have which are editable and would you believe it as far as I can tell not only is all of the Mina range edit but copy and trust me you don’t want to practice editing on a non copy hair.  It only do a very basic tweaking to tuck away a few strands to make this previously unwearable hat a lovely addition to this coat.

Another freebie from ASO are these flatties.  Sorry SLink only but you do get I believe either 4 or 5 shades.  You will have to wear the foot shape that comes with them to make them fit snugly.

It’s not a complete loss to those who don’t have SLink feet but do have a home as the delivery package they come in is a pair of these shoes, so you rezz them unpack them then if you would like to use them as decor then at 1 prim a nice little bonus gift.

Last item.

It’s those puffy clouds on a string.  You get 3 colours in the pack and ONLY 1 prim.  I’ve actually had these in my invent for ages but have just never gotten around to showing them to you.

This is another shop with designs you won’t see elsewhere,  not cheap but a seasoned SL eye would be able to spot your wearing something special and some people don’t mind paying a few extra Lindens for that. Because I’m cheap I’ve just splashed out on the Gacha’s lol.

The invisible woman.(Freebies).

Yup, you know this means “not my fit” and in fact, this spooky bather only comes in a Lara fit but it gives me a good excuse to tell you to haul ass over to the Trick or treat event because there are a LOT of treats!

I’ve not been to many of the events going on at the moment for a few reasons, you probably know they’re going on already or they’re packed and I can’t get in but I was bored and the Trick or Treat Lane event was quiet. Within a very short time, I’d managed to score a folder of freebies as each little shop has a gift outside and they all seem to be priced at 0Lds, best price ever lol.  Check out the shops inside as all of them have some items on at a discounted price and I noticed some real cheapies in other shops.
