Waiting for the sun.(Freebie)

It’s actually a gorgeous Autumn day in RL and although there is a chill to the wind there is still warmth in the sun, so I’ve dug out all my throws and pillows and I’m heading out to my garden and I’m going to wrap myself up “as snug as a bug in a rug” and enjoy the rest of the day with a good book and a mug of coffee.

I will do that with a clear conscience as I’m going to leave you with yet another superb gift and mention of other ones.

I almost binned this as the texture it comes with just is not to my taste then I spotted hidden among the different fits is a hud and this second lighter texture is much more to my taste, of course, you may love the other one or both equally.

The runching of the bottom of the dress is so pronounced it really stands out.

So to get this you go to the Amui shop, you will see on the counter is some free for all gifts which are….I’ll let you find out for yourself.  Once you’ve grabbed those do not TP out as I continued looking around the shop and in the room to the right, you will recognise the layout of the shop and understand where I mean, is another freebie and I do believe it’s an SL frees and Offers gift.

PS. You pay a Linden and it’s refunded.

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.

Coffee break.(Freebies)

I took a break from decorating and TPed to Canimal.

I don’t think this dress is a new gift but I can’t show you the new gift as I think just like this dress its a Maitreya Lara fit only.  I can’t show you the newer gift as it’s a lacy item of lingerie and it’s just not my fit which is a shame as it’s actually really good and just like this dress you do get colour options.

The GG’s are upstairs at Canimal, veer right in the shop and you will see the stairs, there are also some Lucky Boards with again decent prizes for you to win and as I happened as I was LM grabbing I won one of the prizes.

Just in case you miss them then this dress and the other ones aren’t really clearly market as GG’s but you will see them on the clothing rail.

BTW.  Thank you Imp for that LM and Link for a shop which is even new to me, I’ve not bought anything but I’m pinching some landscaping ideas lol.  Anyone who has an LM for an interesting sim or shop then please don’t hesitate to drop me a link because sometimes as in this case this is a new shop and as I’ve said I’ve been inspired.

I need HELP.(Freebie & Mention of Freebies).

I know a few of you are smarties esp about SL n stuff while I am still very much a noob when it comes to that stuff BUT more about the help I could do with at the end and here is the freebie.

Another really nice gift from “Wellmade”.  Simple shorts and top set can be worn as separates and you do get a hud which allows you to change the shorts and top colours/textures. This is the newest Group Gift but if you’ve not been to Wellmade before then you’re in for a treat as there is a decent amount of freebies.

Now for the HELP.  It’s simply a case of me wanting to change the sim setting to one that is not a preset one. I understand that you can get for free or even buy the uploads to install into your SL which gives you some of the amazing windlight settings that are used on some sims.

So basically what I need to know is that where can I find these windlight settings, do I need a zip file like Winzip and is there a good free one and em how the f*ck do you actually do it.  Any help advice on a NOTE please would be greatly appreciated but make it idiot proof please lol.

PS. I have played with the sliders but last time I did that I really borked SL and ended up having to do a complete reinstall!

Sweating like a pig. (Lots of Freebies).

Whoeeee it’s HOT outside and I’m sweating in my jeans, I know TMI lol, so now my RL work is done and once I’ve clicked “Publish” my SL work will be done I’m heading upstairs for a refreshing shower and then I’m back outside to sweat some more.

Not sure if FurtaCor is one of Faiths prefered shop but I snuck in and grabbed this little Kawaii outfit.  Deceptively simple and yet with some very nice touches ie big fat bow at the back of the sleep mask, socks with bows etc and this wearable pillow.  Even the socks come in flat and mid foot shape.

If Kawaii isn’t to your taste still go.  You will find a whole load of other freebies upstairs at FurtaCor, as well as Lucky Boards.  I recognise a lot of the other Freebies but I can also see that they will be as good now as they were then.  There is one dress which I have fond memories of as it was my “go-to” dress for a long time.  A nice mix of stuff, a pair of shoes, tops, dresses, swimwear, lingerie and even a couple of full outfits inc shoes.

So see ya later.

10 mins till I go. (Freebies).

The countdown has started before I have to haul my RL ass out of the front door and face the miserable drizzle but on the good side it will make my hair curly.

These are freebies from Pink Cherry.

Another freebie dress and I’m pretty darned happy with them. Check out the metallic sheen on this dress and if I turned around you’d see it has a laced up back.

PS,  Lots of fits.

I binned the 3rd freebie because I don’t do jewellery but you do you boo.

Restart, Restart, Bloddy, Restart.(Freebie).

I’m cursed! I visited 3 sims only to get the clashing warning box of a sim restart 3 times! Before I was thrown off the sim the Doope shop is on I quickly joined and grabbed the GG and then TPed out before I was booted out.

As you can see a simple dress which I actually like.  Plenty of fits, not mine though. There is a colour hud inc but I can’t tell you how many as the hud was just grey and didn’t seem to want to rezz so I could see the colours but I could still click on it and I would say there is probably about 8 shades.

Doope is a new shop to me and I can’t tell you anything about it because I was pushing it just grabbing this.  I’ve had to take the LM from the folder of clothes and although it should work we all know sometimes the LM’s can be out of date.  I would give it a little time for the sim to restart and I too will pop over later to check it out and also to make sure the LM is ok.

PS. Join the Free group and then pay a Linden and it’s sent back to you.
