Timely reminder.(Freebies@Redeux).

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.

Where have all the leaves gone?(Bargains ‘n’ Freebies).

I hope where you haven’t suffered too much from the howling winds we have been battered with overnight.  We sleep with our bedroom window slightly open and during the night all the leaves got blown off the tree outside and it looked like so many of them ended up blown into our room it was funny to wake up under a blanket of leaves.

Redeux is a very time-limited event and TBH I wasn’t going to go as I was going to be a good girl and save my Lindens, invent and sanity but then I spotted a few pictures of whats on offer and it was a case of “Sod That”.

OK, these first 2 items aren’t free but deffo in the “Bargain” category as both cost 35Lds.

A dirty, filthy, disgusting retro washing machine!  When I say “dirty, filthy” etc I don’t mean the appearance I mean the menu! This is packed with some great poses with smooth movements, single ladies, men, and OMG I won’t be using those ones!  I bought this only 35Lds, there is matching pieces ie laundry basket, ironing board which also can be purchased as separate pieces or I do believe you can buy them as a set at a cheaper price than buying them bit by bit…but check first.  I just wanted the washer so that’s all I got and at 2 prims I’m going to open a laundry.

Or at 2 prims a Pumpkin selling business.  Not free again but 35Lds for an excellent seasonal decor item and I’ve already set this one out.

I didn’t get any further than the landing spot at this event and since every blinking stall not only has so much temptation on it I literally just grabbed a few of the freebies and cheapies I spotted from where I stood and then I TPed out as I would like to come back when it’s a bit quieter and this way I can have a pleasant time wandering around and hopefully not just score some more bargains but what little I opened I have high hopes for some decent Freebies such as this chair/lamp.

Fabulous poses again, hers, his and a more sedate couple ones.  Can you see the plug under the chair?  Click it and…

Woah! This will certainly light up not just your home but put this outside in your landscaping and it will act as a beacon to a place of interest.

Not gonna lie, not 100% sure which is which but again all of these are to be found at the landing spot and just in case you’ve missed it there are OODLES of freebies, I do believe that most of the stands have a nice giftie out for us.

PS No rush BUT this event finished on the 21st and as said the LM takes you to where these items are to be found.

Saving for Christmas.(Freebies).

I hate to say this but you do know that there are only 2 PAY PACKETS between now and Christmas?  Most people use an advent calendar as a countdown to Christmas but me and my OH use pay packets LOL.

So here is a great way to save, in SL at least.

This gazebo is a FREEBIE! Top quality and this version with the lights on the roof is only 18 prims which is more than reasonable but if you want less prims then the unlit one is only 10.

These were a surprise and a great one at that.

KEEPERS! (I already have enough Gazebos to fill a market garden so it’s going!).  You get 2 versions, the only difference is the coloured bauble on top.  The rezzed size is the middle one and it’s only 2 prims I shrank one down and it’s 1 prim and then I made the third one bigger and it remained 2 prims.  So you can make them big for statement pieces or shrink em down for table/mantlepiece decor.  I should have zoomed in closer, I was having a bad morning, because the detailing esp in the greenery is exc.

There are other gifts appropriately placed under the Christmas tree and they too have a Christmassy theme.  You will find all of these at The Builders Box HQ.  The Builders Box I do believe is one of those monthly sub-clubs.  I LOVE them but not in SL lol.  In RL I got a monthly Birchbox delivery and each month I got to “ooh” over Froo Froo.  I’ve never really paid much attention to the ones inworld as I just don’t need but this is a wonderful way to pay your money and the excitement you will have as you unpack your goodies/surprises from some of the biggest and best names in SL.

PS I’ve just spotted we still have all that green, got to change that grass when I get inworld.

Losing the will to unpack.(Freebies).

I was such a good little AV and I stood on my platform and binned, binned and then binned some more then for some insane reason I decided to go to the latest round ot the The Gacha Guardian event…FOOLISH ME!

Not just so many gifties set out for us but too much temptation in those Gachas which basically means I undid all my good work binning stuff.

Obviously, as usual, a lot of the small Froo Froo sorta thing but when they come as great as this platter of tempting treats who cares.  I was hoping to find a dress or shoes but TBH when I’d unpacked a third of what I got I gave up as it was so late.

I also have to say that one of the reasons I’ve not been doing any of the big hunts going on is because I’m pretty sure our readers will know whats happening plus these events have a tendency to be so busy which means so laggy so I’ve been waiting for them to calm down but this.event was so nice and quiet just a few other AV’s like me wandering around checking the Gacha’s and grabbing the goodies.  So for you I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a Sunday.

I’ve also put the link to the Seraphim website.  This isn’t a blog for cheap or free but it’s the most comprehensive and up to date site for all the SL events.

PS You have to join the “Gimmie Gacha” group but invite is sent.

I’ve been waiting.(Freebies).

I don’t think I have previously shown you this wing and staff set but I do know I’ve had these things in my invent for the best part of the year just waiting for the chance to use them and Voila the time is right.

First, the FREE outfit from Cremosas which in the notice says it’s a new LM so use my LM and not yours just in case you still have the old one.  This dress is a much more orangie(sic) Pumpkin colour than is shown, so shoot me I had fun with editing! A simple classic design but really good texturing so good I do believe this is my first Halloween look of the year.  Comes in many Mesh bod fits so the usual “there will be a fit for all” comment.

There are 2 Cremosas groups, the free and the VIP which cost 100Lds to join.  There is enough on the free side, inc this dress, for most people to be happy with but if you have a few lindens to spare check out the VIP item.

The wing and staff set come from Slivery K which has a few other smaller gifts, hair decor etc and if I had checked before I did this picture I think the Pumpkin/Halloween decoration that is now there is new to me for sure.  Anyhow you will find the leather bat wings, staff, and a few other bits n bobs.  Check out the rest of the shop as Silvery K is actually a really nice clothes shop and I own a couple of the items from this shop.

PS When you’re at Silvery K grab the gift called “HaripoteElegy” find a sim or take him home, I believe about 32 prims, rezz and ride.  Simply silly.

Irresistible.(Freebies).

Something went all screwy with these pictures but I won’t say what it was until the end of this post.

Vanity shot as you can’t really see what I’m wearing but I found this swing and beach and just thought this was such a nice shot so here it is LOL.

OK, so the more I wore this very tropical bathing suit the more I kept thinking I’ve either blogged this before or at least had it in my invent to blog but never got around to it so I’m just not sure esp as this come comes with so many appliers for the main costume and the flowers and ribbons both come with a 3 colour option in a Hud.  So if this is a reblog I’m still not sorry.

The dress comes from the same shop but a different group and I promise you it is the same beach.

With this dress you get 2 colours the green I’m wearing and a blood red colour and 2 colour options for those amazing flowers.  You can remove them or wear as separates and even with other outfits is you wanted to.  Although this dress didn’t have the SLink size it had more than enough fits for me to find one.

If these aren’t what you’re looking for I bet in the “irrISIble” shop you will find something because I went “Oooo” quite a few times as I was walking around.  This is a costume shop with OTT outfits for both men and women, stunning and outlandish gowns designed to have people zooming in on you.  Not cheap but I think that when you see the work which has gone into designing these outfits you will understand why they come with a price tag and see it’s not unreasonable at all.  Also if you walk to the back of the shop you will see, sorry but I’m gonna have to say “stunning” again but there are skyboxes and decor items which are very Halloweeny, Autumnal etc.  When I go back I will be using the TP to go the demos which have been rezzed and I’m hoping I don’t get tempted into spending Lindens.

OK so whassup with the pictures, somehow in just the relatively short time I was on the sim taking my picutes without me even noticing the sim changed settings from night to day.  It would have actually worked out very well if I was wearing the dress in the “evening” setting and the bathing suit in the “daylight” but it didn’t happen that way.

So that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

PS Update because I have checked out the demo builds and decor items you wil find at the back of the shop and I swear if you’re holding a Halloween or Autumn party or just like to live that lifestyle then you need to check these out.

IrrISISible (the gifts are on the inside wall to your right when you walk in).

 

 

Temptation caught me.(Freebies).

URGH, I went to a yardsale last night and now I have so few Lindens to my name I might just dig out that begging sign from my invent and plonk myself somewhere.  Having said that I am going to buy 1 last thing from the “who what” shop, I won’t tell you what it is but they’re hanging there in the shop upstairs and I do believe that once I’ve made my mind up which colour to choose it will  cost me just 80Lds which I just about have left.  I’m not going to tell you what it is but I bet you can guess it if you go over to the who what shop for yourself.

Now for the FREEEEEBIES.

This is just one of a few “froo froo” items and this is a dressing table/coffee table little tray I think it does say something about it being a “jewelry stand” but obviously you could pop anything on to this.

Part of me thinks these were gifts from a previous event but it doesn’t matter as they’re now in the shop and super cute. You get the numbers 0-10 and copy and 1 prim.  The glow you see on the table top is from these when lit and you can turn them off.  Just think of a row of these on your mantelpiece as a countdown to a special event such as a birthday or Christmas and each day you can turn one on.

There are other freebies in this shop, the tray is on the reception desk I believe but you will find the rest of them in a little cubby room to the left of the desk and if you blinked you will miss them.

Approach this shop with caution as although it’s a small shop there are just some really sweet decor items and Gacha’s, make sure to check not just the upstairs but the outdoor section as well because dare I say it there are some amazing glittery Christmas tree decals which I’ve added to my “buy” list.

PS I’ve just made my choice and yes it cost 80Lds and if you go but can’t guess what it is I will tell you what it was in my next post.
