It’s not a “Keeper”.(Freebie Hunt).

Wow, texturing has come an amazingly long way since I first started SLing.  This “Holo” sweater from Caboodle is stunning I can only imagine the time and cost that has gone into making that Holo texture and the creases etc only to give this away as a FREEBIE!

This is an SL frees and offers hunt gift, I blogged about that hunt a few posts ago but I’ve not managed to get back to it, I will put the link to the shop and the hunt blog and if you’ve forgotten it’s an orange leaf you’re looking for.

The only reason it’s not a keeper for me is not that it’s not a stunning item but I have nothing to wear with it, nowhere to go with it and it was hard to match a hair with it lol.  BTW if you’re wondering I actually chose the white option from my hair hud.  I rarely use the blacks, greys and white colour options because these are the hardest shades for hair but sometimes a hair maker manages to pull it off…I won’t say who because you can guess who, lol.

BTW, again, if you have a spare 100Lds think about joining the Caboodle Group.  There is a selection of group gifts behind the reception desk inc a new one to me but I still have the old ones as they’re just so good plus I’ve been lucky in the past and won items out of the Lucky Boards.  Sadly there are now only 3 Lucky Boards but the initials do seem to change really quickly and since if you want to find this super freebie you’re going to have to look around the Lucky Boards (HINT HINT) in any case

Deeeeep Breath! (Dollarbie & Mention of Freebies).

Is it just me because sometimes it’s not really clear what it is you’re actually looking for when doing a hunt?  That’s the case with the “The Hoarders Hunt” and in the end, I TPed over to Storax Tree because I know this shop keeps all it’s hunt prizes, group gifts and special offers in the same place so I could not just grab the gift they have out for this hunt, it’s a lovely vase of flowers, but actually see what it was I had to look for…it’s a bag.  A little shoppers shoulder bag.

Then I TPed back to the Blonde Queen shop and finally (3rd attempt) found the hunt prize because I now knew what I was looking for and inside of the bag is this really good jacket.  You only get the Maitreya fit but that’s not an issue.

If you don’t like/want or need this jacket still pop over as there are a couple of new group gifts but you may or may not recognise one of them as it has been blogged by me to be exact and it’s a very bright pink and tight bodysuit, very nice but NMF (not my fit).

PS.  Don’t curse me but I can’t stand “Hello Kitty”…MEOW!!!

Summer on top, winter below! (Freebie/Dollarbie?)

I don’t want you to go to the MMC shop to get this top I want you to go and get all of the other GG’s.

The reason I’m not showing you them is that this is the new Group Gift and the other items are old Group Gifts BUT if you’ve not seen them before or forgot to get them when they were first set out then you’re in for a treat.  Not that I’m actually disappointed in this top at all, lots of sizes and you get 2 colour options but not the sort of thing I’m wearing at the moment.

PS. The group is free but you do pay 1Lds and I’m pretty sure it’s sent right back to you but I’ve forgotten if it was and if you’re wondering about the title the bottom half of me is in jeans n boots lol.

Getting Cheaper.(10Ld Sale & Freebies).

I’m just working my way through all my notes/notices etc and came across this recent one from DM about a 10Ld sale going on. I do know that this is a relatively new notice but the sale is on for a limited time so I’d pop over sooner rather than later.

The sheer body is whiter than shown in this picture.  You get a hud, 6 options, the hud only changes the colour of the flowers and not the body of this negligee.  It’s only in the 1 room where the discounted items are but I did spot the Lucky Boards and the FREEBIES in the main entrance on my return visit to LM grab so I’ve snagged a couple of those to try on as well.

PS. Oooodles of fits.

Vanity Vanity all is Vanity.(Freebie).

I was shocked that I actually managed to get to the Vanity Event as it’s so busy but once I’d had a quick cam around and of course grabbed the gift set out for the Vanity group I decided to TP home and go back another day.

You get 2 versions of this dress, this long one and a short one and I’m not sure so I could be wrong but you either get one shade and an ombre shade inc but the thing I am sure about isssss…no SLink Physique fit, I’ve angled it so you can’t see the gaps. Ignore the headdress but check out the necklace as that is included and it’s really nice, it’s pink chains and happily, for me, it actually fits.  BTW I will check out where I got that fabulous headdress from as it’s not from my usual accessory shop and it’s gorgeous but I have a feeling it’s a Gacha win but you know if I find any freebies in that shop you will be the first to know.

I did treat myself to a backdrop out of a Gacha but I ended up walking away with more LM’s than actual purchases as there are a few shops I don’t recognise the names and one of them is so new there is no shop as yet but I have high hopes.

Ooo UPDATE, sorry I now know where the headdress comes from and it is a Gacha win BUT I’ve just had to mention that the necklace, which even for a non-jewelry wearer like me, is a keeper.  You actually get a hud to change the colour and something called a “string” which is basically a Foo Foo cover and if I had known that I could have change the pose.

A pause for thought. (Freebie).

Normally I just look at Faiths pretty pictures when she does a post but this time I read her “AtiK” post and naturally since she mentioned she’d seen a freebie I just had to check it out.

Although the style of the top is familiar the darkened band around the waistline is something I would deffo remember so I don’t think I’ve blogged it before.  A really nice, basic hoodie, yes there is a hood hanging down the back.  Love the Swallows pattern, would actually like some fabric in RL like this so I could make up some cushions.  So a nice handy basic.

PS. Since the skirt from my last post wouldn’t fit under this top I slipped on these jeans from a previous post. They’re still out as GG’s as well as a couple of other items.  I’m glad I could use these again as I did notice but didn’t mention in the old post how they have a “sheen” to them so although in this picture they look matt in SL they have a light latexy look but do not let that put you off, I still had these in my invent as I really like the colour and the sheen is light.

PS.  The lightbulb is because I’m still planning/plotting on whats going and staying on our sim so you can say “bye bye” to the cart and pumpkins behind me.

IT’S MY DAY OFF FLUCKERS! (Cheapie ‘n’ Freebie).

Yes it is my day off and I’ve scraped the worst of the mess up, put the bin out for the bin men, fed the cats, turned up the fire, got a pile of snacks and mug of coffee and I’m settled for the day.

First is the “cheapie” which is just this skirt BUT the jumper is, of course, the same one in from my last post and I simply chose one of the many plain colours options you get in the hud.  When I was at the SWANK event I spotted the rows of Gachas and some of them were for a shop called “OA-M.E.O” and I have no idea of what that stands for.  The Gacha’s actually have some really interesting decor and clothing items in them but I resisted them and decided to pop over to the shop…yes to see if there were freebies of course.

The OA-M.E.O group does cost 20Lds to join but there is a mix of gifts for women/men and some decor item and just in case you miss it the vase with the purple flowers is also a gift. It was just this skirt which piqued my interest and in particular this very bright and pretty pattern.  As it happens I didn’t spot that you do get a hud and I can’t remember the colours so my best guess is it has 3 plain and 3 patterns in the hud.  Will I keep it?  I don’t know, do I regret paying the 20Lds? Hell no and even though it was just the 1 gift I picked up I am pleased with it but sometimes I don’t keep something not because I don’t like it but because I already have enough of a similar style so just don’t need it and that’s the case for this skirt.

A lovely heads up from Kiylee sent me to Kraftwork because they have a very interesting new GG of a backdrop which she knew I would love, and I do but this isn’t it lol.

This is set out with the other Group Gifts which a lot of you will have seen before, all of them are decor items, and of course the new one and this one which is new to me.

FYI, all of my pictures inc the skirt were just taken in the sims setting.  This is such a rich dark wood and those lights do set of a lovely warming glow and when I want a Classy AF backdrop this will be it BUT it’s not actually a backdrop as such.

Just for a giggle and because it’s editable I made a copy and shrunk it right down to tabletop size so you can see that all sides have been “stoned”.  This is because it is mainly intended as a landscaping item.  I can’t remember what it’s called but it’s something like “garden nook”.  In the picture used to show it off, there are chairs, plants, and other decor items to make this a nice and yes different outdoor room.  We don’t normally get a very formal looking wood used for garden rooms.  Full-sized it’s only 9prims and although you can shrink it down to a tabletop size I think the lowest prims is 6 both big and small are small enough in prims in any case.
