Faith is such a Dog(Lover that is, lol)!

NO freebies in this post.

I’ve been waiting for the “Rally to the rescue” event to start and it’s started.  I personally am not a dog person, they like to lick their nuts too much and drool.  But if I see a cat anywhere I cannot resist them, I am that woman stood in the middle of the street trying to convince a cat to come over for a tickle..even though I have 2 of them at home I cannot walk past a cat!

When we lost one of our precious moggies we decided to adopt and if you have the time, patience and a never-ending supply of Dreamies, then taking in an older cat can be unbelievably rewarding and the scars do fade over time.

This post isn’t about my Pussy addiction, insert dirty snigger here, but for stinky ball licking mutts.  A pretty standard event ie stalls and a selection of whats for sale either the full amount or part of the sale money is donated.  Some of the more well-known shops are involved in this event and so there was plenty of temptation but in the end, I just threw some money into the tip jar, or rather at the Doggie and TPed home feeling smug.

So pop over check it out, even if it’s just a few Lindens think about donating, trust me it will make you feel smug as well.

PS.  As I’m typing I’m trapped under my old moggy, my bladder is bursting and my stomach is screaming for food and yet all I can think is it’s OK to pee myself and I should be on a diet in any case…I’m such a lost cause.

Get Hairy.(Hair Fair & Free Mina).

First the freebie, btw ignore my top as it wasn’t a freebie which is a shame.

But at least you can score this fab free hair from Mina’s shop/stall at the Hair Fair event.

UPDATE.  The “Lily” hair I’m wearing is the one I already own but when I went over to Mina’s shop at this event I spotted that this hair comes not just with a MASSIVE colour Hud but the colour are jaw-dropping so of course I grabbed it but the shade I’m wearing is not one of them.

You may have spotted this hair “Annie” in my past couple of pictures.  When I get a new Mina hair-do I like to wear it for a while just to work out what I think about it and I’ve thought about it and I LOVE IT! But believe it or not this hair and the one in the picture underneath is the SAME HAIR and it’s not just because of the different hair colour.
Annie comes with a “Style Hud” which allows you to change the fringe(bangs) from a sharp cut to the softer style PLUS the back of this hair is done in a French Pleat.  In the picture, I’m wearing the larger more pronounced french pleat so you can see it more as the other version is smaller and smooth against the head.  You will see what I mean if you try the demo out for yourself.  Although I’ve chosen 2 of the most unusual colours when worn in a classic brown, blonde shade this is an elegant updo but this blonde/ginger shade to me is just so good!  Mina does the best ginger hair shades in SL, she calls them “reds” though.

Again look at this shade and whats even better is how it brings out all the work that has been put into the details of this hair.

There is another hair in the Mina shop at this event and yes I have forgotten what that’s called but I do remember that both of these hairs are priced at only 300Lds which is now a standard price BUT what’s not standard is that each colour pack is a massive 30, yes THIRTY shades!  So in the brown pack, you get everything from a light brown to the darkest, the same can be said for the blondes etc.  Years ago before Huds were around I bought a Fat Pack from a shop, long gone now, and I had about 300 shades to choose from which sounds fab but 80% of those shades so almost identical! that’s not the case with Mina’s shade packs.

As Faith has said this for once seems to be a lag-free event and with freebies to be had a nice way to kill some RL time in SL but also think about buying something because a lot of these shops inc Mina’s are donating a percentage to a worthy cause called “Wigs for Kids” which I should imagine we have all heard of.

UPDATE.  I’ll put the link to the blog which shows you all that is for sale, I don’t know if it’s showing you any of the gifts though, it will save you so much time.

Not everything in life is free, but I do have FREEBIES.

As I said in my last post I decided to do my little bit and went to Zerkalo and went click crazy.

But first some purty piccies.

xxxzerk

As I was wandering around the shopping sim I spotted a couple of little scenes set out on the water and since they all have the spirit of Zerkalo about them and the sims wind light setting is so nice I just took a few shots so you can get a feel of what’s there.

xxxzerk2

Don’t worry not everything is white, floaty and feminine there is enough browns, wood and leather for those who like a more solid look.

xxxzerk4

And then I went shopping.  Everything you see in the crates behind me is what I splurged on.  TBH I struggled to be able to pick and chose from the shop so in the end since there was not only so many Gacha’s but Gacha’s where I would have been more than happy with any prize I won so I just clicked away. Though of course I made sure to have money left over so when I get back inworld I’m off to the “The Book of Daniel”  event and although I’m only going to buy what I want and can use considering the list of creators who have so generously given to this event it’s not going to be hard to be able to go click crazy.

However even if you don’t have any spare Lindens you can still treat yourself because the unpacked items are FREE and there was even more which I didn’t pick up as I already have them but from memory they’re TOP QUALITY amazing freebies so even if you don’t like what you see make sure to still go as you will be happy with what else is set out.

This bean bag seat is new to me and omg look at the quality texturing, I can’t even knit that good!  So lovely and the more uprightness of this bean bag is unusual and of course, it contains great poses.

xxxzerk6

I have already shown you this great freebie but since I rezzed it I included it esp because you get 2 versions and 2 shades, brown and black shades and PG and Wooo Adult..which I’ve never tried out but I can only imagine that the adult moves will be as quality as the PG ones.

Just in case you’ve forgotten about it here is a link so you can read a bit more about “The Book of Daniel” and more importantly the two humans behind the AV’s and this story.

A great start, great freebies and a GREAT cause!(Freebies).

Woah such a busy morning this is the first time so far I’ve been able to sit and blog, I’ve been so busy I’ve not even had brekkies yet! So it’s lucky for me that I took not only some time out yesterday to do some landscaping on our sim but also to take a couple of snaps of some FREEBIES and an EXTRA SPECIAL MINA!  So pay attention at the end.

Faith is laying the foundation, ie the roads and path’s etc and anything else that takes her fancy and I’m following on behind her like a little Sim Fairy scattering tree’s and plants along the way and so far this is one corner of our sim….we just have 3/4’s left to go!

xxxsimuse

The freebies are the dress n shoes, both from the same shop, ZD which stands for Zhora Designs.  Although there is a GG out for the ZD group to get these you will have to join a group called “Third Life” and “SL frees & offers”, both of which are excellent inworld groups for free and brill bargains.  Don’t worry as the group invites for both of them are right next to the gifts.

When you go in the shop turn to your left and on the wall just on the inside is where you will find these goodies but turn to the right and you will find a row of Lucky Chairs.

Both the shoes and dress come with a lot of mesh bod and feet options so no matter what you wear there will be a fit that fits.

This hair is a special one.  Riva is a recent style from a previous event, can’t remember off hand which one, but I think it’s been revamped with a small dip dyed colour Hud which as it happens turns out to be full of what I consider to be Autumnal shades.

xxxsim3

This is the hair from the back so you can see the “dip dyed” effect.  This hair is only going to be available at an event called “The Book Of Daniel” and I dare you to read the story behind the event and NOT BE MOVED!  I have to confess that I too have only just read the reason behind this fundraising event and I’m choked up!

Someone else is now living our nightmare, the thing that we dread to think of happening to ourselves and a loved one IS happening to this man and his wife.  The harsh reality is that any funds raised in SL would only make a dent in any medical bills BUT the generosity of people coming together and donating goods to raise money and people buying these items will mean so much more to this couple than any financial impact.

This event is open from tomorrow but even though I’m going to be there as the sim doors opens I’m off to Zerkalo later today.  Because even though my invent is stuffed with Zerkalo items I know there is many items I’ve out off buying and of course there is always new stuff to treat yourself to. If you’ve never been to Zerkalo, what is WRONG with you!  Unique & stylish items for your home and garden.  This is stuff crafted by people who not only want to try to make a living out of SL but also want to make SL a lovely living place for others.  So spend, spend and spend some more and not only will you be rewarded by the feel good factor of just helping a little bit you will also be filling your SL home with quality.

Give a Little get a lot. Nepal Fund Raising.

Can there be anyone on this Gods Earth who hasn’t heard of the horrible tragedy which is still happening in Nepal.  This has struck a dagger at the heart of an already impoverished country and basically they NEED our help.  The wonderful people of SL are pulling together and the fund-raising has started with the “Join Hands For Nepal” event.  A whole load of SL designers have come together to raise funds and this gown called “Starry Nights” is Ever Wonders offering for the cause.

give

I’ve not edited the picture in any way so you can see exactly what your Lindens are paying for and check out that sparkle!  Only cost 150lds and 100% of that goes towards the charity.  A 150lds in real term is COPPERS, PENNIES, DIMES etc really! so even the poorest of us can give a little, a little always adds up to a Hell of a lot in the end, and in this case you get something, apart from a warm cosy snug feeling, you get a quality dress to wear.

My sim setting and the skybox will have added to the whole look but again I’ve deliberately not fiddled with the picture so you can see how glorious it is and of course you don’t have to have a such dramatic skin as mine it will look stunning on any skin.  You can of course try on the demo for yourself.  I was so taken with this whole look I almost forgot to mention that there is a blue option as well.  Actually if you also check out my last post, those shoes will look amazing with this as well.

I’ve put the More Than Ever  shops LM as well and you can see the 2 dresses she has for this fund-raiser and there is a sign for you to click on that will give you much more info about this event and LMs but if you want to go direct to the More Than Ever dresses the second LM will take you there.  Go with some Lindens to spend! I’ve managed to have a quick walk around but had to leave but what little I saw was enough to show me that this is GOOD stuff or as I call it Shop Quality Stuff.

I’ve also added a link to a donate site that accepts PayPal.  I for one do not like to use any sort of card to register even with charities and so this PayPal one was perfect but please use whatever one you want to AND although all of them use preset donation amounts you will also see a box that allows you to add as much or as little as you can afford. If you have a roof over your head, food in your pantry, clean water coming out of your tap and a Doctor who can give you medicine to keep you healthy then you are truly rich because these people have nothing.
