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.

PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies.

This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one.

I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.

This new hair is only out at Kustom 9 so don’t even bother trying to get in there esp as it’s only just opened so it’s gonna be heaving!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog because you can see whats up for sale at this event and as always you can use the Mina Mainshop to go check the demo out in lag-free heaven.

PS.  I don’t bang on about it enough but the Group Membership for Mina’s in only 200Lds and she’s recently added a new hair to the room that has all of the shop quality hairs in it.

The dress is the dollarbie and there is a reason the hem is slightly cropped in the picture and I bet you can guess why?  Yup no SLink fit but you do get a fit for SLink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya & Isis and although I could find a nice fit it wasn’t a perfect fit.  Again you may have the mesh bod that does fit or of course you don’t even use one and have an alpha in your invent which will work.  The sleeves are attached as well which is a lovely touch but that might make a struggle if you do go for your own Alpha.

You might want to rush as obviously this is a lovely Valentines pressie off Spirit but it is only on the MP(Marketplace) and it might be pulled soon as Valentines is well and truly over.

You can skip all of this part as it’s just boring waffling…I’m good at that.

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and remember even if you’re on your own there is no reason why you shouldn’t make sure you have a treat to spoil yourself or in my case our cat because we remembered it was his RL BD on Valentines lol. So me and my OH probably spent more on him than each other plus we spring cleaned the house so let’s face it Valentines for a lot of people is overrated lol.

I’ve also been MIA because it was also my RL BD(say that so it rhymes) and I’ve had a lovely time which has only been slightly marred by Windows desperately trying to force me to do a window 10 update even changing my computers setting to allow it!  I won and Windows lost, this round at least lol but if you don’t want the windows update then check they haven’t changed your settings.

I’m also trying to sort out sim out, I should have maybe started next week rather than this as we stripped it all back and I started to rezz away but then had to stop as RL was fun, fun and more fun but now I need to get sorted and get all those bald sim patches filled, get my new studio sorted and make my mind up what house I’m finally going to live in for the next several months which I have to say is much more fun in SL than RL lol.

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.

The Last Tango

It’s all about red this time of year and I’ve found a darling little dress from Avale for just a single Linden ! All the mesh body fits plus a Hud that gives you not only red but black and white too ! I find I’ve been wearing the”Cindy” bracelets I bought from Noir a lot recently, really versatile with a great big colour Hud – link below. I found the necklace at Oxide and woohoo – it actually FITS without digging into my neck – always a bug bear of mine – this was in the subscriber gift section with plenty of other goodies !

Gold & Silver.(Cheap & Free).

This took some hunting down but it was worth it.

The metallic texture of this gold underboob flashing top is so realistic!  I have to say I prefer this gold one but there is a silver one as well.  I should have taken a picture of the back as well as there is a gorgeous drapey metallic bow but I didn’t because it was only when I got back inworld to LM check that I noticed that the back was a really good fit even though this isn’t an SLink fit.  Because this isn’t a free group, only 25Lds though, I’m pretty sure there is a demo for you to try first.

You won’t find this with the other GG’s and the lucky mirrors but they’re close and you should find them easily enough.  I will have to say that the gifts in the lucky mirrors are excellent (they’re the free-standing mirrors) and if you don’t want to wait for your initial to come up then anyone can buy a copy of the outfit for just 49Lds and I would in a heartbeat if it wasn’t for the fact there isn’t a SLink fit! Boo Hiss!

OK now for a freebie which is also a repost but these leather/satin? pants are a nice addition to anyone’s invent.  I got them from the  Nala Design shop but they’re an “MLM Free and offer” gift.  There are a few gifts dotted around the walls in the shop.  These come in so many mesh fits and a matching top but I either binned the top when I first got these or they weren’t inc at that time.  If you want to see them full length then scroll back to a couple of post ago and I was wearing them then as well.
