A handy little trick!(Lesson 101, Freebies & Free Gift Card).

A notice from Arcane Spellcaster got everyone running including me.

The Arcane Spellcaster Group is free to join and once I’d grabbed the generous 250Ld gift card I grabbed these 2 Group Gifts.

The jacket has split sides to it which is an unusual design and I love the skirt which can also be worn separately.

This dress has that little bit of “extra” in that it’s a Bento skirt and that frill floats subtly but noticeably when you walk, it’s a world away from the dated flexi prim.

I also spotted that next to the place where you get the Freebie/Gift Card is a board of outfits with a 50% discount.  I was very tempted to treat myself to one of the outfits and that’s when I spotted that if you’re using the Gift Card the 50% discount won’t be applied.  You can still use the card but you will pay full price.  I’m going to wait and return at a later date and have a proper look around the shop before I make my mind up as to what I’m going to treat myself to as I’m pretty sure I can find myself something.

Lesson 101.

Did you know that when you get an outfit made up of 2 or more separate items but the 1 hud changes the colour on both items at the same time?  With the first outfit, I loved the texture on the jacket but not on the skirt so I took the jacket off put the skirt on and using the Hud as though I was wearing both items I just chose the colour I preferred for the skirt and then put the jacket back on.

PS.  The dress is still for sale in the shop at 350Lds so you can see its good quality.

Cute AF! (Freebie for him ‘n’ her).

Finally a freebie I can keep.

This is just a vanity shot because my AV is looking so good lol.  The freebie is hidden behind me so here’s my just as cute backside.

It’s the bag, very realistic and I think at some stage we’ve all had this style of sports bag in RL so it made me chuckle to find a copy in SL.

This comes from the “ExalteD(sic)” shop which from my quick grab and run looks like it’s a male clothes shop but this backpack comes with not just a decent colour hud but a resizer so it was easy to shrink it down to fit me.

I’ve not got time to mooch around the ExalteD shop but I will when I log back in just to see if there is anything else I’ve missed.

PS.  The outfit is also a freebie from Coco Designs and it’s been well blogged but just in case you’ve not seen then where have you been?  Sorry I can’t give you the Coco Designs LM as I can’t log in just yet.

The fun and games are over.(Freebie).

I’ve had a nice if somewhat boring couple of days off RL but now I have to get moving but before I say byeeee here is a quickie from a very appropriately named shop.

I literally “Meandered” into this shop from a neighbouring one and that’s where I found this freebie.

Again the colour has changed as this rough linen-textured set is more grey than beige and obviously, you can see from the breakthrough this is a Maitreya only fit.

I’m not too keen on the top but these shorts are pretty good and can be worn with or without that belt, I like the belt it’s a nice finishing touch.  I know I have another top, old freebie, which may go with these shorts so I might have a dig in my invent to see if I still have it and if it works for me.

There isn’t a lot in the Meander shop but I’ve LMed this place for a return visit as there are some poses and I LIKE them so once I’ve weeded mine down I’m going to pop back and pick and chose those I can work with.  BTW since I have THOUSANDS of poses it’s going to be a long haul to weed them down.

OK got just enough time to slap some lippy on, grab my bag and I’m out the door. So have a good day and I should see you later.

Meander.

Going with this. (Freebie).

I do try to find stuff which is fresh and new but the reality is so much of what I’ve blogged has been blogged by many blogs and I’m often the last one to blog it lol which brings me to Promagic and this which undoubtedly has been blogged by many lol.

As you can see from those big Gazunga’s I’ve had to put on my SLink HG body and you know that if I go through the bother of changing my body it’s because I think it’s worth it.

It’s a one-piece outfit so sadly no splitting it up but a nice consolation prize is the colour hud you get.

This comes from Promagic and there are other Freebies but apart from one I think they’re all jewellery as for the one other item which is clothing I will leave that one as a surprise for you but it is for both sexes and I’m keeping mine so it’s worth popping over for that surprise.

I’m not hunting any more Freebies out today.  I’m going to plonk my SLink Fat Ass shape onto a pose ball, to stop me from moving around. and trash my way through my invent which is groaning like a fat woman realising she’s down to her last choc ice….not that that’s me of course!

Shocking, I bought Lindens! (50Ld Pack inc mention of Freebie).

I was just LM hopping and popped into 1 Hundred,  where I spotted 2 boards leaning up against the counter.  At first, I thought they were Gacha’s and for 50Lds a try you could win some prizes but nope for 50Ld you get everything you see.

I have been so good that it’s only now that I’ve had to purchase my 500Ld monthly budget and that was just to treat myself to this bargain bag of clothing.

I’m not even hating the shorts and usually these “coochie cutters” are my least fav style but I think they’re some of the best I’ve tried.

I think I will probably keep this but as with the shorts, these “coochie cutter” swimsuits aren’t usually to my taste.  PS it’s not an odd shape it’s the pose I’m using which makes it look odd lol.

This dress was the one I was most interested in.  Just a lovely summery dress.  There is a nice summery top and 2 more shades of the shorts so, all in all, a total of 8 items for just 50Ld. You will also see on the boards that there is a demo sign so if in doubt you can try before you buy…..that made even me cringe.

Drat! As I was LM grabbing I spotted that there is, in fact, a Free to join Group Gift.  I’ve not got time to show it to you but it’s very pink with a cheeky nip slip so if this 50Ld offer doesn’t get you over there I’m sure the chance of a cheeky nip slip will.

Let me “Entice” you.(Freebie & Mention of Freebie).

Such a good start to my day off.

I wasn’t too keen on the pink with black ribbons that this two-piece comes in, personal taste only, but when I logged in this morning and spotted you get a hud which allows you to change the ribbon colours I had to scrap that picture and retake it because I just love this pink on pink colour.  I love it even more because it comes in plenty of fits and of course as separates.  It’s always a lovely boost when you can wear items with other items.

The Makeover Room is where you get this from and most of us know that it’s on the same sim as Entice who is the donor of this gift, in fact just walk out the front door of the Makeover room and it’s just across the road.  Since I was already there LM grabbing I, of course, check out any new freebies so it’s not hard to guess what my next post is going to be about?

That was quick! (Sorry, Dollarbie).

Yesterday the sim I’m standing on was a lush, green, hilly landscaped event, packed with ponds, plants and a perfect contrast to this red outfit but today with a wave of a wand (OK someone clicking the right button) and it’s all gone!

I can never remember if a group is free or not so when I see a really good Group Gift I always keep my fingers, and sometimes my toes, crossed if it’s especially nice and the Poeme group IS Free.

Overall just a nice simple skirt and top set but that bold red pattern and cut out shoulders just make it that bit “extra”.  Plenty of fits and YES, separates.

BTW on the table behind where this gift is are some fun freebies and a daily freebie.  I grabbed today’s daily freebie and it’s a table cloth but as for the fun freebies, I’ve left them as the surprise.

UPDATE.  Doh when I left the Poeme group today it reminded me that it actually cost 1Ld to join so my “freebie” has now changed to a “Dollarbie”.  Sorry.

Poeme & Ballade(The LM takes you to a platform where you can either TP to Poeme or Ballade, both have this outfit as the Group Gift but Ballade is a furniture shop while Poeme is clothes).
