Don’t talk to me, it’s 10.26am and I’ve only just finished my first cup of coffee! Trust me until the second cup hits my bloodstream NO ONE LIKES ME!
Fortunately, I’d found this cutie last night and I’m just starting my second cup so by the time I click “Publish” I will be back to my sweet-natured self.
The one thing about quality gifts is that people have a tendency to keep them and it acts as a reminder for your shop, so when I came across an old quality gift from CJ Creations I decided to pop over and see if it was still there as I don’t mind reblogging items when they’re perfect for the season etc the old gift is not there but this new one is.
It’s a dog, obviously, sitting in an umbrella, again obviously, and it’s full of plants and pumpkins again obviously (remember no one likes me till my second cup!). OK, you might just spot the puppy on the Mums head but the one on her back is out of sight. This also comes with that sprinkling of leaves. I believe it is about 6 prims and you know that if it was editable I would have torn it apart. It does have a resizing menu though so you can make it a bit bigger/smaller.
Be warned I had to keep that little voice in my head saying “you don’t need more landscaping stuff” as I checked out the shop. Although you can buy individual items such as patches of grass, trees etc this is one of the shops which have a lot of those premade little landscaping scenes. Really exc esp for those who don’t have the time or eye to create their own little patch of Heaven, just slap yer Lindens down and it’s sorted.
This gift is to be found at the back of the greenhouse and this is a FREE for all gift so you just buy it for 0Lindens.
PS. My second cup has hit the spot and now I’m as sweet as pie, don’t laugh Faith!
This post is for the dress which was sent to me, and everyone else of course who is a subscriber of Busty Boutique. But you’re not subbed to Busty Boutique or you are but haven’t been sent this dress, and shoes, then pop over and unsub then resub and it will be sent to you after a couple of minutes.
I did briefly mention shoes but since I wanted to do a close up of the hair n face you can’t see them but they’re perfectly designed to go with this dress, very Halloweeny.
I’m gonna log in and check out the balloons and scary face to see if they’re still available and still free but the hair is one of my all-time Mina faves and I love this time of year just because it allows me to wear Blair more often. Not that it can’t be worn at any time but those “wings” just look AMAZING!
Sorry, it looks like the balloons and scary clown face are old gifts and I can’t find them.
I felt bad and so when I logged in to do a bit of sorting out I decided to pop on a pose ball and show you the shoes which come with this outfit.
They come in 3 mesh feet fits and I didn’t mention that the dress also comes in a variety of mesh body fits. I feel better now so I can return to my pose ball in the sky and start rummaging through my invent for more goodies.
I came across a long forgotten folder with some clothes in it from Yasum Design and blimey they were a blast from the past and then I came across a coat/dress which was pretty darn good. So I TPed over and of course, as soon as I went to the Group Gift rooms I remember this place well.
90% of the gifts are very dated, lots of prim clothing, system layers, sculpties and flexi bits. When you try this stuff on and compare it to the mesh we all know well you will see how far fashion has come in all these years. I’m NOT being mean about all the gifts and there are LOADS of them both a men and women’s dept and although I couldn’t find the coat/dress combo I first mentioned there are mesh items and some actually interesting stuff in there and I had a lot of fun trying the old stuff on and then there is this.
A hanging chair which for a whole dept full of clothing was most surprising and it’s excellent. Only 3 Prims only and a really nice hud of 6 cushion colours.
The LM I will give you takes you to a room and in the centre is the TP to all the different dept, I of course just checked out the GG room but I might just check out all the other dept to see what sort of clothes this shop sells now and not the old stuff of the past. There is also a men’s freebie dept as well, next to the ladies. BUT you won’t find this chair actually in the gift rooms it and some other gifts are in the cute rabbit head bags just outside the door. Don’t panic when you TP as the TP places you in front of a wall in a narrow corridor so for a little while you may thing you’re in a cube/wall etc but just turn around and go down the short corridor. Honestly, when you get there it’s easy to see what I mean.
I don’t want you to spend anywhere else today because I’ve just received a note from Mina Nakamura about an amazing offer and that will be my next post so hold on to your hats n lindens.
PS I’ve just remembered one of the other gifts in the bunny bags is a rather good pair of retro sunglasses with a bright bold hud and I’ve already popped them into my “glasses” folder.
Just popped over to Imeka and as soon as I walked in I spotted my initial on the Lucky Board so I quickly snagged that but I won’t show it to you, it’s a very nice little bag, but I will tell you about the Free Group Gifts.
At this time of year you can never have too many Pumpkins or Pumpkin pie, and when they’re free and top quality the more the merrier. These come from Imeka and they are mod so the black one in the back has been made a bit bigger and I shrunk the orange one in the front. I think changing the sizes does seem to affect the glow through the holes but that could just be the angle of the picture. Doesn’t matter as they look great in all lights.
Other Free Group Gifts inc poses, nail varnish, biscuits etc.
PS The little area outside of the Imeka shop is so pretty and with the landscaping and decor it’s a lovely place to come and hang out or even to take some pictures.
A Black Swan to be exact as that is the name of the shop I scored some nice freebies from.
This top, although you can see it in this pose, has a nice sheer panel down the front and is very drapey and opened at the back. Comes with a pair of coochie cutter mesh shorts and as they’re separated they can be worn with other outfits as well.
The stockings are also a giftie but I will be honest and say I was having a bit of an issue with the texturing at the join between my mesh feet and body BUT I’m not going to say what because it’s not a big thing and there are other appliers in the pack so it may not be an issue for you and because this is still a lovely gift I’m not complaining.
Another gift is this even drapier mesh top. Unlike the first outfit this top comes just in standard mesh sizes and not mesh body sizes but I found the probably because of the design the S size fit my mesh body perfectly (I just had to alpha the nip out lol) so mesh or no mesh body a nice fit.
The shorts with the skirt bum on them is the last freebie I picked.
There are other Freebies and some nice outfits in the Lucky Chairs which you will find upstairs. I did linger for a while to see if my initial came up on one of the chairs but someone with the same initial as I turned up and when that happens I always leave as I don’t need to win anything else and would hate to take something from someone else so I’m heading back now to LM grab and have a proper look around the shop.
PS the “issue” with the stockings was due to the windlight setting I used, I’ve just checked.
First, let me just make it clear that the warehouse I’m showing you is NOT a freebie or a cheapie. I personally get a bit frustrated when someone posts a picture in a freebie Flickr group only to find that it’s the tiny little pinkie ring and not the stunning outfit, hair, shoes etc they’re wearing so I like to make it clear before I start, so the building is not a freebie but you may just need it!You will find me for the next hour and a half in this warehouse because I returned to the Redeux event and OH Dear! I’ve picked up not just all of the gifts but there are so many superb bargains and I’ve spent all my Lindens! I even ran out of money before I got to the Gacha’s which I suppose is a good thing as just the freebies alone I snagged will take forever to unpack and sort out. I’ve not unpacked anything yet but I can see that it’s going to be good stuff.
As for the stuff I’ve bought most of those only cost me 25-35Lds and the most expensive was a selection of wrinkled rugs for 50lds.
So hurry up and check this event out you won’t regret it.
