I’ve been in the Granola group for a long time now and I joined back then just to get this laundry set and everything else was just the icing on the cake.
This washing line and the tub of water with the non-animated, bubbles coming off it was worth the joining fee of 50Lds alone.
I already had these as they’re are so pretty, just lovely little decor items.
The whole shop has had a revamp, new shop, new stock and new LM but I couldn’t see a new group gift. Although there is a very lovely tasty looking chocolate cake dispenser gift at the LM I’m sure I’ve already shown you that as well. I’ve stayed in the group all this time in the hopes that when the next new gift comes out it’s of the same quality as the older ones.
To find the group gifts go forward and all the way to the right and there is a wall of gifts as well as some Gacha’s to tempt you…I got tempted lol.
This is a gift from a shop called Loud Rebel Design or LRD for short. I really like this interesting pale blue pattern even though it reminds me of the bottom of a swimming pool.
These shoes are just a classic style with a simple hud of pale colours, very handy if you’ve not got a similar pair.
The pantsuit is in the main entrance and if like me you continue into the shop you will see on another wall another group gift of a gown and then again close by but on another wall is where you will find these shoes and a couple of other gifts. This isn’t a big shop so you should find them ok.
You will also find what I consider to be some interesting designs for sale. I rather like the jeans which you can only buy at the Unik event and further in the shop is another set of jeans called “Jolene” with the wrinkles I love, nice thick cuffs and a big hud. They also come with a big price tag which is what you pay for really nice stuff….I don’t cos I’m way too cheap lol. Actually just before I logged out someone in group chat mentioned they’d found they had a gift card for this shop but not the LM so I did a quick search of my invent and the group notices and I’m sad to say no gift card as I would definitely buy the Jolene fatpack jeans.
Tachinni was the shop I was looking for when I accidentally ended up at the Vision shop, check my last post for the details about that offer, and it turns out I did have the right LM I just walked the wrong way as they’re opposite each other.
So basically the Tachinni shop also has a generous offer out of 500Lds worth of shop credit and all you have to do is join the Tachinni group for 15Lds then use my LM to TP to the Shop & Hop event, slap the board and get all that shop credit. The stall does have a nice amount of discounted items for sale as well but I’d seen this coat in the main shop and so I went back for it.
The hardest part was deciding which colour I wanted and as always beige won again lol. The coat comes with the single colour of your choice but you get a hud for the buttons, metal and that polo necked underlayer which I think is a great finishing touch but if you don’t like it then just unclick it in the hud and it’s gone. You also get a panty layer in the hud which I appreciate as all too often it’s a layer I forget to add lol. Although the coat is hardly short enough to be flashing anything it’s still a nice touch.
I also bought the boots which you can just about make out the top of. Although these are a seperate purchase they use the same colour palettes as the coats and as the coat you get a hud which allows you to change the colour of the sock and as you can see I’ve used the same colour for the sock, the boot is green, to match it to my coat. If just like the polo neck layer you don’t like the socks you can wear the boots as ankle boots.
Anyhowww…I know that once you have your own 500Lds credit you will be checking out the whole shop for yourself and there is everything from these coats and boots to bikinis, skirts, tops etc and also a couple of group gifts and also some lucky boards close by, I won myself a new top from one of those.
UPDATE: It looks like you can get the credit by slapping the board in the Tachinni shop and not have to TP over to the stall at the Shop & Hop event. Still go before you make your mind up as there is another gift plut the items at this event are at a discounted price.
There is an event running called “2Much” and thats where you can score yourself this bathing suit.
Sorry in my desire to add some warmth to my picture because the RL me is freezing, I’ve turned this blue bathing suit into more of a green shade….oops.
I don’t think the LM takes you directly to this gift but it’s just at one of the isle, easy to find. I’m heading back there now, in my badly fitting cossie lol as I may treat myself to a new backdrop plus I want to check out what else is here.
I love it when I see a stylish shop with stylish gifts and then the VIP group turns out to be free.
I almost missed the group gifts in the Rowne shop as they’re tucked away, turn right and they’re on the back of the “events” board, and there are actually quite a few gifts there. Some bold red dresses, a skirt, glasses etc and in the picture I’m wearing this smart high fashion two-piece, the bag and although you can’t see them I am wearing a simple pair of court shoes from this shop as they with the hud you get with them make for a great pair of goto shoes, I already owned them which is how I went over to Rownes.
Sorry, the headdress isn’t a freebie, I will check it out and if it is then you know I will do an update.
I knew I had to have this new hunt prize from American Bazzar as soon as I saw it as both in RL and SL I’m a sucker for a wrap over dress. This one has such a quality soft velvet texture to it.
It’s been a while since I last visited the American Bazzar shop so the Lucky Boards where a nice suprise and an even nicer suprise was I won two items almost straight away as the letters/number changes every 5 mins. You may spot me wearing the blouse in a post at some stage and if I do I will mention where I got it from as I do try to not do posts just on lucky board wins.
If you don’t want to wait to win from a lucky board then check out the group gifts. The blue sheer dress has been blogged before and if you missed it you really don’t want to miss it again as its so classy and yet if you zoom closely you will see the hint of whats under there.
The group is free to join and there are a few more quality gifts out as well even some “sloganed” t-shirts which I’d wear.
UPDATE: Ooooo check out the link to the “Flair for Events” blog and look at the list of shops involved in this hunt. Thats my very cold, snowy and boring monday sorted.
This is just one of the gorgeous freebies from Una and now I’ve logged in to grab the LM I’m sure that there are new gifts as I don’t remember this or the dress I picked up at the same time which means hopefully some surprises for you all.
PS. Just thought I’d add that this and the other gifts seem to come with a colour hud as well which is always a nice extra.
