I’ve made my mind up.(Just for fun Freebies).

Yesterday I stumbled on an old and beloved SL memory, Arcadia Asylum and everyone over a certain SL age will hold this shop close to their heart as it was one of the biggest, bestest freebie places and it’s still there for us to enjoy.

As it happens Faith has given me free rein to play with the plot of land next to her home and so I’ve decided we need a parking space all my shiny new spaceships.

Since the land space is still limited I’ve just stacked them up.

They’re all drivable/flyable or in the next picture, walkable.

All joking aside there is just so much random stuff, everything from a whole pirate village to a Mermaid school, desks, tables, computers etc.  Obviously, these are items created many years ago so premesh and most has not stood the test of time BUT they’re classics, so many of us oldies will have if not had some as decor we all have taken pieces and ripped them apart because back in the old days we used to learn how to edit and create by ripping mod/copy items apart.

Use the TP system to check out all the odds n sods and although you have to pay 1Ld it is refunded straight away and you don’t have to join any group.

Clicker!(Freebie). Updated

I reread a note I got from a lovely lady, who is a reader of this blog, and she has given me another really appreciated heads up about this FREEBIE from Apple Fall!

What ImproLibra has discovered is that Apple Fall has secret freebies secreted in and around their shop and I’ve blogged a few of them before but what I didn’t really think about is that they add and change those freebies and it’s only by clicking on something do you know if it’s a new hidden freebie or not and she clicked on this cabin and guess what? Yup FREEBIE!

It’s not that I didn’t think it wasn’t but just in case it turned out to be a demo or a footprint you were buying I just took the pictures of it at the Apple Fall shop and when I got home and unpacked it she’s right it’s a complete build for free.

Total Apple Fall quality with the attention to detailing and texturing we expect from this shop.  I took a lousy picture of the doors to this cabin but they’re so perfect you can just about make them out in the last picture, they’re double doors which slide open and on the inside, you can see all the metal work.

It’s 50 prims and I think you can see why.

This last picture of it is just to let you see where it is at the Apple Fall shop, the LM takes you close to it so just turn left and there it is.

The other heads up she gave me was that Apple Fall also has a shop open at the “Holiday Shopping Event” and the empty cabinet, I think it’s called Charlotte is priced at 0Lds and I suspect that since most if not all of the shops at this massive 5 sim event has a Christmas gift out then there is a good chance there is a Christmas gift as well.  Sorry though I don’t even know which sim the Apple Fall shop is on. I’m pretty sure you can find it and if not then just scored lots of what look like really excellent gifts on the way.

PS.  As always hints, tips and heads up are much appreciated.  We’re all SLing together but 2 things, notes as they rarely get lost and IMs get capped plus if I don’t follow up on your heads up it’s nothing personal there might be a reason for it but as always TOTALLY grateful for all the help that’s come our way from you lovely readers.

Ps. Note from a reader with the LM to take you directly to the Apple Fall stand – which btw is FULL of free gifts and the most adorable 1Li Father Christmas statues for freee.

P.P.S Two of us write the blog – Zan who does most of the blogging, and moi – Faithless Babii, who does very little of the blogging lately !

A non tiny, tiny home ‘n’ stuff. (Freebies).

I love it when I just go wandering and then stumble on a really lovely freebie.

The shop is one I know, ChiMia, I did a quick search in my invent and have things from here either bought or picked up as freebies from many events but I’ve not seen this cabin before.  It’s actually a decent size with stunning texturing inside and out, it’s even got gutters and a covered porch which I’m not showing you because I’ve just slapped it down on my platform and it’s not going to show it off at it’s best.  Only 59(ish) prims.

Perfect timing for this little wrapping set.  Only 1 prim, perfectly proportioned and when I TP home I will be rezzing this under the Christmas tree….it’s rezzed now.  The lamp is the last gift and I did take a nicer picture of it but that picture didn’t capture the nice and light glow this one gives off while you can see it in this picture.

The ChiMia group is a VIP one but that doesn’t mean you have to pay to join, you will have to pay 1Ld to “buy” each gift.  So when clicking on the gifts make sure to wear your VIP tag and click on the 1Ld payment option and not the full price option.  Fortunately for me since all I have left to my name is 3Lds and I’m not buying any more Lindens till after Christmas you get your 1Ld back so I’m still in SL credit lol.

PS.  A little bit further on from the LM there are also Lucky Chairs.

Broken Vows.(Dollarbies).

They tempt you with the freebies/dollarbies/gifties etc and then sucker you into spending Lindens when you were going to stick to your guns and not spend any more.

OK, this has to be bought from the Maya’s Architecture Marketplace shop only.

This is all for a single Linden and I have edited the set up a little bit.  You get the lounger, table with decor, lamp, trees, bright autumnal leaves  and the lantern and they all come on a square but since they’re all unlinkable and copyable I took away the bit they were stood on, put the table closer to the lounger and copied a couple of the tree’s/leaves to make a nice setting.  Some really nice poses in this both single and couples(I think there are couples), I loved the simple sitting pose with the tea-sipping or book reading, very nicely done.

This is a close up of the trees because they’re really, really good and only 2 prims each.  You do know that if you want a shrub then you can just lower a suitable tree so the trunk is under the ground and you have the shrubbery just showing?  I’ve done this many a time before when a tree has been stunning but I wanted a shrub.  There are 5 Dollarbies waiting for you in total.

Be WARNED, esp if like me your a build hoarder ALL of the builds in the Maya’s shop/marketplace shop are 50 bloddy Lindens!!!  ARGH!  Before I started to click away I checked my invent because I do remember this shop from a long time ago and yes I already have a lot of them in my invent but that didn’t stop me buying more!!!  Lots of the houses come fully furnished some with both furnished and unfurnished options, you can buy streets and cottages complete with gardens so many styles and options and again only 50Lds!

I had to log off last night and so I didn’t get a chance to rezz the other Dollarbies I picked up which is a pouf, a small house and what looks like it could be an adorable little pier so I’m looking forward to logging in and checking those out and I will be honest and once I’ve checked out what I already have I will be going back for more.  BTW in case, you’re wondering because there are no demo’s for you to see I used my Nams setting but from memory, the quality of the texturing may not be Apple Fall standards but I’ve paid more for much less quality!

PS If you like the Twin Peaks TV series, the original one, there is a couple of buildings from the shop PLUS don’t be fooled by the gifts in-world as they just send you the Marketplace link.

Squat, Thrust, Pump. (Freebies).

Hands up how many of you pervs are checking this post for something Xrated lol.  Sorry but just like Great British TV I seem to be full of “repeats”. I popped over to Blueberry with my fingers crossed for some New Freebies but I was slightly disappointed because I do know that 2 out of these 3 items we have been previously posted about and there is a good chance that even the 3rd item has also been posted previously but since they’re so good, so handy and sooooo free I just went with it.

XXXBlue1urb

I’ve just finished a week of a very strict weight loss/cleansing diet and omg when I stood on the scales this morning I nearly fell off them!  Not a diet I would recommend to many but it’s got me looking soooo fine and with my new gym kit all I’m waiting for now is payday so I can start at my new gym.  So since payday seems to be ages away I’ve been doing some buns n tums tone up exercises and yes in my living room in front of the fire because would you believe it, SNOW in the UK in late Spring! FFS! I’m STILL wearing my Winter woolies and sobbing into hot chocolate! (Remember we English love to moan about the weather lol).

XXXBlue

Now this strappy cropped top is possibly the one item I’ve not shown you before it’s hard to tell because it’s a classic SL strappy cropped top and they’re plenty of them around but then I notice the MASSIVE colour hud and since you can’t make any of the detailing out in the black here it is in one of the other shades.

XXXBlue2As you can see lots of those creases and wrinkles which make things look so much more realistic.  Can’t remember how many colours come in the Hud but you have everything basic blacks to bold reds.

XXXBlue3

I definitely remember blogging this and I also remember the indecent crowd of people rezzing to the Blueberry shop to snag these.  The bra top and panties come as separates but have the same waffle texturing and the same pretty generous colour Hud so you can match them up or as I’ve done make them different and you can also change the string colours.  You can just about at this angle make out the little stocking tabs on the bottom because they’re lingerie but as you can see from my top picture I think they look just as great as shorts.

All of the clothes come in standard Mesh sizing but also a couple of the most popular Mesh bodies inc SLink Physique and I know that because I’m wearing my SLink Mesh bod.

XXXBlue4

In all honestly I would have thought that this house would have been removed as a GG because it was a Christmas special from….maybe even thinking about it was possibly even from 2 Christmases ago?  Doesn’t really matter as this is a STUNNING build!  and the fact that it’s still out is an absolute boost.  You get 2 options in the pack a stand alone house and in this picture one that comes in a stunning snow setting with big snow drifts and landscaping.  100% quality texturing and design it’s perfect and it’s primmy.  Actually it isn’t but we’re prim Wh*res, we count prims like some people count their pennies.  I can’t remember the actual prim count but for this fully landscaped one it’s about 300 and with such excellent quality texturing you don’t need to be stuffing a house as good as this with furniture, less is definitely more and of course with the much newer designs you can get stunning decor items for amazingly low primmage! Get yourself a little sky platform, rezz this and decorate it with style and you have a wintery cosy nook all year round.

PS if anyone thinks I even closely resemble my AV let me tell you my tip of the day, I’m breaking in my new gym shoes and they’re killing my feet especially across the top of the toes on my left foot and I have found that one of the pads out of a bra I own slips over my toes and are acting like a cushion so my tootsies and now I’m not in constant pain.  Keep that image in your mind when you think of the perfect AV me LOL.

The cheap B is back (B stands for B*tch of course) with an amazing FREEBIE/Dollarbie.

What a way to return to SL with this amazing FREEBIE!

OK first off Helloo cos I’ve been so RL busy it’s been both a blast and knackering, an old English term for very tiring, as I’ve not only been enjoying Christmas and New Year completely I also chose this time of year to start a new job! Now that RL has finally started to calm the F down I’m going to be back inworld from Monday and bargain hunting just like old times.

So the first thing I did when I got inworld was to try to grab some of the December gifts that are still set out and I managed to snag a couple of goodies and then I came across this from Blueberry and it has the OMG factor.

XXXCabin

I have to point out that the snow is all ours but if you want a snowy outlook I’m pretty sure that there will still be plenty of free snow rezzers out there, having said that because I rezzed this house on our land there may just be a snow rezzing but they blended in with what we already had.

XXXCabin3

The main door is on the side and you can see the balcony on the front with sliding doors.

XXXCabin2

You get 3 versions in the pack this is the land one and although it’s prims made my eyes water you get everything you see, the snow base, trees, house and shrubs and they’re all linked so so easy to rezzz and derezz.  You get the exact same layout in the skybox version with I believe a skydome over the top which adds a couple of more prims to the count but you could literally have a winter home all year round in the sky and a summer home on land.

XXXcabin4

You also get an unlandscaped version and so I quickly rezzed this on my platform for some quick snaps as I didn’t want Faith to come inworld and faint at the lack of prims left LOL.  The house on its own comes without any snow so perfect for any woodland setting and any season.

XXXCabin5

I took all this photos in just my nams optimun skin n prim setting and haven’t touched the piccies up at all so you can see the quality.

XXXCabin6

Gorgeous staircase up to an open balcony bedroom area which is big enough for a bed/bath and any other furniture you’d like to set out and I do believe a window that looks out over the front.  You may have to watch your prims as this isn’t lightweight esp the sky and snow version, even the house on its own is still around the 200prims BUT they’re worth it.  A gorgeous build and with them being linked for a lot of people it makes it so easy to create a stunning home with minimum effort and with such gorgeous builds you can keep the indoor decor to the minimum for a classy look.

I knew it! OK so I popped back inworld to LM grab and this time everything rezzed completely, I was having comp issues yesterday, and I knew it that Blueberry isn’t somewhere you would go to buy a new house or some items of decor, Blueberry has some amazing clothes so nice I just grabbed the LM resisted some adorable balloon decor items and TPed out because I’m poor LOL.

Oops I’m not a 100% sure now but this may just be a Dollarbie or you need at least a Linden which is return to you when you “buy” this house..I’m a bit rusty at blogging now LOL.

Spooky! (cheapies & freebies)

Haunted House Halloween Freebie !

I blogged this last year, and its still good to go this year ! One of your $L dollars will secure it – made by Linus Humphreys and updated in 2013. You actually get two versions of this splendidly sppoky build, the one above plus a winter style. The door creaks, theres a few bits of grungy decor inside, its just perfect as an Autumn/Halloween spot. You do get the landscaping in the box, but it isnt hard linked , which makes it optional.

$10L sweater & mesh fit jeans

I also snapped this outfit up for October from TBT, gotta have something with pumpkins on right? This is so cute, rolled up shirt sleeves underneath and the orange sweater on top, just $10L . The jeans are a really good find, they were part of another TBT outfit I also purchased for $10L. They are “fitmesh” and really do fit brilliantly over my Slink Physique mesh body!
