I almost made it.(Freebie, Reblog(?))

I have yet to be able to squeeze myself into the Blueberry shop for their latest freebie as the place has been packed solid.  I don’t even know what it is but until then check this freebie out.

If this is a reblog, and it probably is, I don’t care because if I did blog it it was when I didn’t own my SLink HG fit and now I do I can now add this quality sporty outfit to my gym clothes folder. You get the 1 shade for the top but I think there was a total of 4 shades for the shorts and lots of fits.

Info & !g0 (Hunts, Freebies).

This dress is a hunt prize from !g0.  There are 3 hidden baskets in the shop and this was in the first basket I found.  I will be returning later to try to hunt down the other 2 baskets as they contain similar retro style/textured dresses, lots of fits as well, and I have an !g0 addiction.  The note says that the baskets are to be found in the “parcel area” although I’m not sure where that is I do know I found the basket that this dress came in in the main entrance and so I think it’s safe to assume that they’re in that area but make sure to check out the whole shop as this is a shop packed with unique designs.

BTW I’m gonna mention the hair as “Betty” is, of course, a Mina’s hair but it’s not often I get to wear this retro-styled one and now I have lol.  It’s the same with the bag, I do have some because sometimes an outfit just screams for a bag or bangles etc.

There is a new Group Gift at !g0 as well.  The !go group isn’t free but it’s only 50Lds and you get regular group gifts as well as an item with 50% off.  I don’t know if you need to be in the !g0 group to be involved in the hunt it doesn’t say so in the note.

I was actually doing the “The Great Caspetech Easter Egg Hunt” when the note came through about !g0 so I quickly dropped that hunt to go get me some !g0 goodies and yes I will be returning to this hunt as well as going for the other !g0 ones.

When you follow the link it opens a web page and you do have to log in to get the Hud sent to you. This is a pretty big hunt, 220 stops, 410 eggs and so far 2007 people have grabbed the hud and are doing this hunt.  The hud is the usual one ie give it permission to TP you and you can also get hints etc from it.  What you don’t get is a list of the shops involved in this hunt so before I log back in I’m going to do a bit of a google to see if I can find a list of shops involved rather than going through the hud one by one.

PS.  If you’re wondering, yes I’ve been sitting out in the sun and yes I have gotten myself overheated and slightly singed…isn’t this hot summery day amazing.

Eggs for all.(Freebie).

This gift is from Nutmeg, but it’s the “REKA” group you join which is free and right next to this fab decor gift.

Not the lamp or the teacup with eggs as they were already on my table, in this case, it’s the pail of spilled eggs, flowers and the towel they’re on.

The gift is right in where the TP is but this time I’m not going into the Nutmeg shop as I know this shop way too well and I’ve already spent too much in SL and there is too much temptation to spend even more in the shop as the designs are unique and stunning.

But unless they have been removed if you haven’t yet pop into the Nutmeg shop and just inside the door to your right are some top quality freebies for your SL home.

Quick start.(Freebie).

This is a very bright, zingy subscribers gift is from Graffitiwear and I was pretty sure I was already subbed but it turns out I’m not but I am now.

When I slapped the sub button I waited and waited and waited and it wasn’t sent to me so I decided to click on the large sub-board sign and as you can see it was then sent to me.  The sun I’ve used in the picture has brightened the colours but this is a lovely zingy patchwork dress.  Lots of fits as well.

As I’m pulling poses I’m deleting them like mad, old ones, new ones, cheap ones and “you paid how much” ones but when you have 1000’s of the damned things and some of them are as old as me its time wasting trying to find the right pose.  I think this one might end up in the trash.

It’s still Christmas. (15Ld Hunt & New Mina&Mention of Freebie).

I love the windlight setting on the Mina sim, it’s so freaking flattering.  I’m always tempted to drop her a note and ask for the details but she is one busy lady and I hate to bother her.

I’m still wearing jeans and glasses from my last post but the top I was wearing came from Ricielli and since it’s Spring/Easter time I popped over hoping that Ricielli has another one of their excellent hunts on and they do but it’s still the Christmas gifts.

My disappointment at nothing new was sweetened by the 2 prizes I bought.  As this is a paid for hunt there is a big poster with pictures of what’s in each box and more importantly, the sizes as not all the clothing comes in all the main mesh fits.  The clothes are shop quality.  I will say I was surprised as this top is supposed to be a mint colour and I don’t know if the sim lighting has changed it, doubtful, but it’s not mint.  NO complaints as I love this colour and down the back it has a flattened hoodie.

The second picture shows the other “prize” I treated myself to and this one deffo comes in the 2 colours the picture shows, this brown and a lovely dark green.

If you don’t know Ricielli then you won’t know that all of the old hunt gifts are stashed away in one of the buildings.  Still at the 15Lds prices but such a variety of casual wear, club wear, shoes, skirts etc.  To get there head out of the main shop and you will see a signpost, just click on the one for the emmm I think it said shoes/sale/discount etc something like that.

More hats now.

As you can see from these two pictures the hat/hair is very similar.  Hazel is the bottom picture and Fleur is the top.  Fleur is the newest hair although Hazel was only brought out a couple of weeks ago.

I will admit I much prefer Hazel, there is a ponytail down the back which you can even change the length of using the “style hud” but it’s the tendrils that frame your face I like the best and they too can be changed by using the hud.

Fleur, top picture, is so new you can only buy her from the Kustom9 event and again comes with a styling hud which is this case allows you to change the way the hair hangs down ie over one shouldn’t left or right or just simply hanging down the back.

PS.  I almost forgot there is a FREEBIE in the Ricielli shop, the LM takes you right next to it.  This is a stunning freebie but I know I’ve blogged it at least twice so I don’t really want to do it again.

A Classy AF Sunday.(Free and not Free).

I always like to make it clear upfront that this first item is NOT the freebie and now let the rambling start….

SL is like RL, in that in RL I am a bargain hunter, the reduced food section in the supermarket, charity shops, Poundland and I eBay like a B*tch.  My scrimping knows no bounds and I’ve even been checking our Aliexpress for fun and cheap stuff…yes that is an actual web site.

But I save to spend and that applies to my SL life.  So when I saw there is a sale on at the Maison de Montgelas (MdM) shop I think, my cold cheap heart skipped a beat.

OK at just under 350Lds for this dress, not exactly cheap but when you see the fit, quality, design, texture and on and on it’s worth it.  I spent forever trying the demos on but in the end only bought this one as it looks like there is going to be not just a new shop but new stock and I can’t wait to see any new items.

This dress is actually one of the more understated dresses  You get two versions of it, this one where the jacket and overskirt at the back are a light green.  There is a lovely sash belt as well with a big bow. The second version has the jacket and overskirt all the same cream shade but the sash belt remains coloured.  You only get a Maitreya fits but as you can see I had no issues.  Again there are demos for you to try on and many other designs.

But even if you’re on a zero budget I will reblog this excellent free group gift for you in case you’ve not seen it before..

I’m just showing you the back as you can guess how good the front looks and this way you can see an example of the detailing.

The hats were another couple of things I treated myself to as they were just 120Lds.  Unlike the dresses, you don’t get demos for the hats but they are editable to a certain degree. I am lucky in that I have the perfect hat/hair which is designed just for this style. I will do a post about that next because although that is not a freebie I think some things are just worth paying for and if you want to swan around SL like a lady then you simply have to invest.

PS.  Forgot to mention that there is also a big selection of period costumes for men, they haven’t compromised on the cut, design, texturing etc for those either.

Wrong top. (Freebies).

Seeing how many people are at “WellMade” shop I have a feeling you will be seeing their newest freebie everywhere and why not indeed lol.

I went for the top only because I didn’t spot that the shorts are inc with this freebie. This top isn’t “wrong” but what I also didn’t spot is that you get a hud which gives you two textures, this one with large Sunflowers and one with a smaller Sunflower texture which I prefer but I’d taken my picture already so I decided just to go with this one.  Something so country girly about that top.  LOTS of fits and separates.

There are more gifts at the back of the WellMade shop and you know I just couldn’t walk/run away without grabbing this one.

Again, separates, oodles of fits, a 2 shade Hud and as you can see you can change each item separately.  Not 100% sure I’ve not shown you this before as it’s not a keeper for me BUT that’s only for me, you all know I have an SL and an RL gym/sporty clothes addiction and the only reason this isn’t a “keeper” is that I have so many of these outfits already.

I was actually looking at the Welmade Marketplace shop where the top outfit is actually for sale and I was just about to buy it for I think 7Lds when I notice that it said it was FREE inworld.  I will give you the MP shop, as well as the inworld LM as there are some nice Dollarbies in the MP shop which I don’t think, are in the inworld shop so check out the MP and the inworld shop.

PS.  As always a disclaimer, I ain’t no fitness freak! I’ve just found that good quality lycra helps to control the flabby wobble when I do work out and as for bathing suits, sod bikini’s we all love a good control panel lol.
