Blogging SL, Pure Eggs & Spam @ Inworldz, second life

Don’t scroll past! (Lots of FREEBIES inc clothes for him and her).

One way I find old/new stuff to blog is just by checking old Landmarks which is how I ended up at “Ajuda Brasil” which is I believe a meet and greet place for our Brazilian SLers or just people who love all things Brazil, a sandbox AND a big shop of FREEBIES.

This is the old freebie that got me there so some of you may remember it.  I know I still have it as I just love it.

The way it’s been textured/coloured gives it just an amazing atmosphere.  The fireplace is the main attraction and what else is there is limited so you have a really big skybox to create a lovely atmospheric crimbo home.  It comes in about 51 prims and sadly is non-mod but it’s not stuffed with preset furniture and what is set out in front of the fireplace is absolutely fine so just picture this scene with lots of Crimbo deccies, plump cushions and colourful rugs it just makes for a lovely Winter/Christmas hidie hole.

Never fear as there are 3 floors of FREE stuff, clothes, shoes, hair, shapes, aeroplanes etc.  I’m saving unpacking the plane till I log back in.  I did pick up a dress from the Nala Design gifts but I decided against showing it to you as the picture was rubbish.  Obviously, a lot of the gifts are old but I spotted some newer items and there is plenty of mesh stuff to make mesh heads happy.

TBH it’s so relaxing just wandering and grabbing as much as you can, then TPing home, or use the sandbox, and slowly unpack and work your way through the finds.  You may end up binning them all but you may also find some treasures to keep.

BTW.  Also thanks to the Fabfree group, again, for a timely reminder of this place.

Ajuda Brasil(Turn left at the LM, it’s the large building with 3 levels of freebies, but this skybox and 2 other outfits are on the ground floor.)

Personal Choice. Pt 2.(Freebie).

I know that the “S@bbia style” won’t be to everyone’s taste but you know I love it.  I watch sewing videos, I plan sewing projects, I have a sewing machine, threads, needles, patterns, bags stuffed with fabric and fabric scraps and so many of those little things you think you need but you don’t and do I actually sew? Of course not I’m just a craft hoarder BUT if I ever pulled my finger out of my ass the things I’d sew would look like S@bbia as it has a “homemade” look to it and I’d be dead proud if I could actually sew something like this.

This year because I’m trying to stop wasting money I have warned my loved ones that Christmas is going to be handmade so when they unwrap their knitted/crocheted dishcloths, oven mitts, pot holders, cheeky cross stitches etc they have to feign surprise and delight….OR ELSE!

Back to the dress which you may recognise as a couple of posts ago, I showed you this months S@bbia Group Gift which is the Halloween version of this dress.  What I didn’t show you in that post were the shoes which are included with the dress and at this angle, you can see the cute flatties.  This version the shoes are white with roses and the Halloween version the shoes are black and even if the style of dress isn’t for you get them for the shoes.

The Halloween gift has been moved to one side and on the wall you will see some of the older, and dated, GG’s but you will also see a much newer gift of a shoulder bag which I have blogged and it’s excellent not only to wear but as a decor item.

PS.  Naturally, it’s a Mina’s hair and I know it’s one of her newer ones as it comes with a “style hud”.  I love braids it’s as simple as that.

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.
