SIMply Fantastic.(Freebies).

I’m so easily distracted, I’m supposed to be landscaping our sim but yet again I got sidetracked by this brilliant gift from Little Branch.

I thought it was a Silver Birch, I have one of those in my RL garden and it has a special place in my heart but this one is called a “Golden Birch” as you can see it has that silvery bark that all Silver Birches have.  What you can’t see is this tree has a lovely delicate movement to it plus it’s SEASONAL! and I’ve only just recently did a post where I said if you can afford it buy your landscaping that is seasonal.  It’s a FREE group gift and the board it and the group invite are on is right next to the LM.

This is a really big tree which does show in the prims, I do believe it’s 12prims, you wouldn’t want to make it any bigger but if you shrink it down you obviously reduce the prims.  Even shrunk down to the 5prim mark you will be left with a tree which was still a decent size.  For me, since I’m after sim stuffers, ie extremely low prims I would only use this as a feature tree-dotted around, however, if you have only a small plot with just the space for a handful of plants this is perfect.

Check out this close up to see why.

You also get a couple of patches of grass and a shaped piece of land, I have used one of the patches of grass which is 4 prims for just that small plot but it’s so dense and really looks like real grass.

It’s VD Day. (Mention of freebies ‘n’ cheapies).

OK going to try my hardest to make this a short post, but no promises.

A little lingerie set from Dirty Princess, free GG and super sexy panties and bra set but a rotten fit for my SLink body which is why this is a long shot because I could not take a close up without all my SLink flesh breaking through. I promise you I’m not boob flashing, the outfit has sexy sheer lazy panels which is why I look like I have very pink boobies. So not sure what body it’s meant to fit, prob a Maitreya but it cost nothing to try it for yourself.

The shoes are also freebies from the SL frees and offers group but you pick these up at the Legendaire shop entrance.  There are other paid for GG’s as well as some excellent discounts and scattered around are heart-shaped boxes for only 10Lds each.

Then I treated myself to these from one of the stands just outside of the Legendaire shop.

I’m not usually a big fan of these thick soles shoes but they have their uses and I thought these with that bow had a retro vibe to them plus with the 10 colour hud they’re going to be a handy pair of go-to shoes and only 67Lds

If you speed read this post it will deffo seem much briefer than it actually turned out lol.  The reason for quickness is I do believe the Dirty Princess gift is a Valentines one so you might want to grab that quickly.

PS. That’s my new gym/sports hall and sorry it ain’t free but at only 15 prims it was almost perfect for what I wanted, it’s a skybox and I want a land based one.  Anyhow I can’t wait till I’ve got time to shove all my gymmy stuff in there and pretend I’m a gym bunny.

Romance is DEAD!(XOXO Hunt).

Boo Hoo! So far in this hunt, all I’ve won is Pizza and whats even worse is I can’t eat it!

This is the XOXO Hunt and you have to get the Free hud, either from the MP or inworld, check out the blog link for the details and more, you simply wear the hud and you can click on the shops you’re interested in and not only does it send you the LM but the image at the top changes to show you what the hunt prize is which makes it easy to pick and choose what goodies you want to hunt for.

What you’re looking for is a box of chocolates and tbh the shops I’ve hunted in have them out in very obvious places so even a useless hunter like me found them with no problem.  You stand close to the box of choccies and type “xoxo” in chat and you either get the goodies or a b*tch slap that your “romancing has failed” and you walk away with your heart broken and a tear in your eye.  You can try again but only 24hours later OR pay a small sum for the item, 50Lds.

Follow the blog link at the bottom for the LMs and Links for the hud plus there is a link to the pictures of the prizes and there is a nice mix of clothes, nails, and decor.  There is a couple of items I’d even pay the 50Lds for but I’ve been eBaying in RL and plant buying in SL and I’m broke! So I will slap that hud back on tomorrow and “XOXO” till I win the damned prizes I want.

PS.  This pizza came from a shop I’ve not visited in years, Lost Junction, and it’s full of great and funny decor items and other odds n sods so it’s well worth a visit as you can’t get this stuff anywhere else in SL.

All the Free things !

FINALLY got into the Shop Your Heart Out event – three days of trying! I whizzed around and as I’m on a tight budget currently I avoided looking at any treats ~le-sigh~. My top picks of the gifts are right here – but there is so much I prolly forgot to nab a few! Above is the simply fabulous dress from Giz Seorn – mesh body fits galore. Also the Astra hair by Truth with allllll the Huds for colours. My boots are from Oh Pair – free to group members. Now when I joined I could’ve sworn the group was free to join – but Zan popped over and noticed it is now $75L to join – howeverrrrr this months group gifts are THREE pairs of boots/shoes – great deal !

These are the other pair of group gift boots from OhPair – mesh feet fits only. There was another pair of booty/sandals but no SLink Physique fit booo – really nice though.

Love love love this shirt from The Secret Store – dead cute and a  great fit as always. Choker is from Rebel Hope and the hair is the gift from Magika – absolutely adore this style! I still haven’t unpacked a lot of the gifts I snaffled up – should be easier to get in now – have fun !

FREE, 25Lds and “you paid how much”!!!!

Faith has waved her fairy wand and our sim has gone from blinding white to green in celebration of Spring, and yes I know it’s early but it’s our SL and in our SL it’s getting warmer.

Anyhow, I decided it was time to refresh the tree’s, any excuse to go shopping.

This is the FREEBIE from Nadine Reverie’s shop called 3D Trees (but there is more than just tree’s in her shop or rather her sims).

I’ve rezzed 2 copies of this Hawthorn Tree and shrunk the one that’s slightly in front of the larger one.  Both sizes are 10prims but this is a substantial tree and if you have a small plot then a tree of this size is a perfect plot filler.  Although it’s a freebie it lacks none of the quality and a nice little bonus is that it’s copy and MOD, my fav word.  I didn’t tear it apart limb from limb but I know that you can take big chunks of it to create big shrubs and they work out at just 1 prim.  So I’ve left these 2 on our sim and when I get back in I’m gonna shred em.

These trees are the 25Ld ones and I will be back to the “Over the Moon” shop as there is other landscaping items at more than reasonable prices.

All of these pictures were taken in our sims setting and I think there is a lovely haze around these trees but they stand up so well in so many settings and again only 25Lds! Copy as well, not sure about mod as I’ve only just started slapping stuff down and will get to the finer landscaping when I’ve got all the planting I want.

These trees come in sets of 6 linked together and for the linked trees they’re only 2 prims and they have a nice random link to them and I have spotted they are mod but I’ve not played with them yet.

These are the “you paid how much”trees.

TBH I can’t remember how much I paid for these Larch tree’s it probably was something like 1,250Lds and they were worth every Linden.

One of the lessons I’ve learned is that if you can buy landscaping that is seasonal then buy it because if it’s as quality as these are they will last you not just for SL years but SL seasons as changing out seasonal landscaping can cost you so much money in the end so trees, shrubs etc like this can end up being a great investment in the end.

You can also buy these trees at cheaper prices, I think they start at 300Lds, of course at that price they come with some restrictions ie non-copy, non-seasonal etc but it’s clearly marked on the box as to what that set does.  As I’ve said I’ve got the seasonal and in this picture they’re set for spring.  This is a great shop even if you just have a small plot as you can buy eveything from a single tree to a forest and with if you check out her MP shop you can buy from as little as 10Lds!

PS. These massive trees and unbelievably only 2-3 prims.

3D Trees. (Inworld) OK, The LM will take you a set LM and in front of you is 3 boxes clearly marked and you just click on the one for the trees and once you’ve TPed you just  follow the path through the”golden archway” past the AV, I swear he has been stood there for a couple of days now, past the grapevines on the trellis and VOILA it’s just there on the small hill in front of the Swamp Cyprus tree’s LOL.  Sounds a bit convoluted but honestly if you go over I think it will all seem clear as to where you have to go to find it plus I must add that I don’t think the tree is marked as being free but when you click on it you can see it is.

A fun way to kill a Sunday. (lots of randomness & Freebies).

Just like Faith I’m still waiting to be able to get into the “Shop your heart out” event and the rest of them so I decided to throw in the towel and rummage in my invent and I came across a very old Freebie which still made me chuckle and I was off to see if the stuff was still there and IT IS!

Tooter Claxton is or was the only creators of a whole load of what was at that time, about 10+ years ago, inventive, creative, weird, wonderful, basic FREEBIES for everyone.  Everyone has or even still has things they picked up from the old Arcadia shop and even now all this time late I had a lovely time looking at the old stuff and some of it has now gone full circle and that “basic prim look” makes them almost look classic.

All those things in the boxes to your right are free and the stuff on the stall and what you can’t see do cost put only a few Lindens.  In the free boxes there is everything from pizza boxes to full builds.  The AVs on the stand are really unique and funny and a great way to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Then I TPed to the next LM in Tooters profile and it brought me to this and the other free builds.

I actually not only still have this slum apartment complex in my invent but I actually always intended to live in it….I might still do it now I have a whole sim to play in lol.

This is just inside the entrance of this building.

This is one of the rooms inside of this building.  It’s a primmy build but then you do have it fully decored in and out plus stairs and corridors all done in this unique basic tat style.  I don’t know how many rooms there are in total but what  a unique place to live in and I don’t see why you couldn’t even become a Slum Landlord.

So check out Tooters profile and check out his “picks” for the list to some interesting places and have a lovely relaxed lazy Sunday.

PS. If the buildings aren’t in the first LMs boxes you can simply click and buy them as they are set out on the sim in the second LM.

PPS This stuff is copy, mod and trans BUT you NEVER EVER SELL IT! This stuff even from the start was meant to be free for all and people always stuck to that rule.

Why?(Free(?)Mina & Massive Mina Hair Sale).

I’ve been trying for days to get into a couple of big events and because they’re stoofed I’ve not been able to which is a shame as I would love to confirm it but I’m 99% sure that this Mina hair called Faith is FREE and add to that you get a FULL-colour hud pack! Holy Crapola! Faith is already one of my fav hairs, so obviously I’m just wearing the copy I already own lol, but to be able to snag this for free and the full-colour pack is AWESOME!

To get this free hair you have to try to squeeze your AV ass into the “Shop Your Heart Out Event” and I wish you luck.  I stood for ages waiting for enough people to leave so I could get in but nope, I’ve put the link to this event blog at the bottom of this post so you can see why this is a special event.  Don’t panic though as this event goes on till the 26th and the Mina LM should take you right to her shop at this event.

So I TP’ed over to Mina’s Mainshop and just stood on her lovely landscaped sim and pondered what to do because in her mainshop in celebration of her SL/RL Birthday she’s got a massively discounted sale on.  All of the women’s hairs and some of the men’s hair upstairs in her shop are slashed to 125Lds for each colour pack.  The reason for the rush is that this discounted event is only on till the 13th and you’re going to need all of the time from now till then to try on all of these hairs as there are so many!

These aren’t hairs which haven’t dated well in fact for a while I was at a complete loss as to why they were being removed from the inworld shop and then it dawned on me it’s the size of the colour hud options.  The discounted hairs are still some of the best hairs but they do come with a choice of 5 colours whilst the newer hairs come with a massive 10 colour options.

What a way to fill your invent with great hair.

You can miss out all of the rest of this post as it’s just me being spammy.

I get my Mina hair for free but I am a free agent, I don’t have to blog every hair, I don’t have to sing their praise, I don’t have to wear them all the time or bad mouth other hairs!  I only have to be honest and I LOVE Mina hairs.  Of course, I have hair from so many other designers, Dura, D!va, Argrace etc and LOVE them but Mina always just has styles that makes me feel “Oh yeah, that works” and even when not showing you a new Mina I’m 95% of the time wearing a Mina because I always just find the right hair.

Although most of her range is every day, everyone wearable she also had unique “out there” range of hair.  She also has the best range of men/unisexed hair I know although I will admit my knowledge of men’s SL hair is limited so any male AV will know what they prefer.  She’s now also coming out with a lot of little extra “options” which allow you to change the style of the hair, for example, the 2 new Pocket Gacha wins and each comes with the 4 ways to wear your fringe/bangs even Faith has 2 options the one I’m wearing and the other one moves the plaits to allow for bigger boobies.

I also know that Mina is a working lady, she’s in SL to make money and not just for making money’s sake.  I won’t go into personal details but being able to use her creativity and computer skills to make money allows her to look after not just herself but also her family and I think we, even I, sometimes forget that a lot of people actually do need the income from SL because it can for those who have the skill offer an income to help with RL.  Which is why I may hunt out the cheap ‘n’ free but when I spot something I love, usually furniture and landscaping stuff, I buy it. I spend a lot of Lindens in SL because people need support but mainly because my SL is my RL escapism and so if I spend some RL money to make my escapism just that bit sweeter then I do.

PS.  Forgot to mention that at the Mina’s mainshop LM there is also 2 Midnight Madness boards with yet again one of my go-to hairs in it!
