Broken links broken heart (Freebies n stuff).

I’ve just noticed that a link I provided in a previous post is  broken but fortunately I’m using a prop from the same place so I can relink you.  Honestly I hate it when that happens.  OK first the FREEBIE.

In my last post I showed you some jewels which are gifts from Zuri Lyric’s small shop Lazuri @the Cosmopolitan shopping event, easy to find this shop as it’s right on the corner next to the main entrance of the Cosmopolitan shop and it has some lovely yellow flowers in the window.  I was so impressed with these gifts this morning I logged in and TPed over to her main shop and found some more FREENESS!  Actually there is a free item to all and then if you slap the Sub board you get sent even more freebies and then because I was so impressed with them I even joined the Paid for group which costs 250 but I thought you get your monies worth back in spades with the 2 full sets you get and I know I have some outfits which these necklaces/earrings/bracelets etc will just look stunning with.

First one of the Freebies.

It’s the necklace, and earrings which come in the other freebie pack.  Comes with a really BIG menu which allows you to change everything from the stones to the bling or in this case the “glow”.  A stunning chunk perfectly fitting piece, although the menu allows you to change the size it fitted me perfectly. The other Freebies are much more subtle and everything comes with that full menu.

This is one of the paid for Group Gifts, a full collar of precious stones and metal.  Again that menu allows you to change everything about it.  You also get the matching bracelets, earings and 2 rings for both hands.

I had to take a selfie because I took these pictures in my new bathroom and everyone knows you take selfies in bathroom.

So OK I’ve had fun with the pictures, and my bloody appearance, normally with paid for items I like to leave them untouched but since you can get the freebies from the smaller shop@Cosmopolitan, I’ll put the link below, and the Sub and freebie from her mainshop you can use these to judge the quality for yourself before you cave in like me and treat yourself by joining the group.

The broken link is for Linus Humphrey Marketplace shop and costs a single Linden!  I’ve previously shown you the Urban warehouse but I also went back and brough everything else, from the Steampunk windmil to the old fashioned bakelite telephone not because at 1Ld they’re cheap but because they’re 100% QUALITY!

Just like my pictures of the warehouse I’ve just framed this picture and not changed it in any other way, the texturing is that good.

PS Yes I’m going to be wandering around SL dressed like that hunting down the next freebie.

Storage for a Linden(Dollarbie).

Amazing how much stuff is or was in my “received” folder I’m still working my way through it but this one is a definite keeper even if I simply end up using it as a background for pictures.

houseware

All of that for a single Linden! Sadly not very low primed but sometimes to get the details prims have to be used.

house

I say that this could be used on the land and as a sky home or even a workplace.  Why live in a house when you can live in a dump I say lol.

wearhouse4

I’ve placed myself in it but it’s not really showing you it’s true size.  It is in fact a massive 32.000 (width) x 32.500 (length).

wearhouse5

You can see through the grungy window.  There is a sliding door as well to allow you access to outside.

warehouse 3

Last picture as I just wanted to show you the scale and texturing.  I’ve not fiddled with the photos I’ve simply used my inworld Nams setting and of course my dome colour will have had some softening effect.

I know that there are those in SL who love their cars and there is so much space in here you could literally rezz a smaller hut inside to turn into your home and have all your cars in this warehouse right next to you.  Or use it as a workplace, even though I have a sim to work on I am usually to be found on my platform, there is something about being up in the sky and away from the distractions that really helps you concentrate.

And as a reminder all of that will only cost you a SINGLE LINDEN!

I’ve gone a bit crazy and when I went check out Linus Humphrey’s MP shop there are ooodles of Dollarbie items and I’ve gone CRAZY and I’ve bought the grunge toilet, grunge office, the candy shop and the abandoned cottage and all are of the same amazing quality! and all of that came to just 4Lds and when I’ve got more time I’m grabbing the rest.

The Home Show – Cleo Design

Cleo Design The Home Show NEW!!!

Hola … What a day today…sunny & hot…lunch with my parents and shopping ! I got home all hot & sweaty with tired fingers from carting around all those shopping bags…so I sat in my garden to cool down in a deck chair almost identical to the one above. These are what Id call traditional garden chairs, I can’t recall a time in my life where these havent  appeared in the summer in the garden, or jammed into the boot of a car for a day trip. Ahhhh the memories huh? These are by Cleo Design and are on offer, amongst other things at The Home Show event. Brill poses, some that give out a wearable prop too !

Cleo Design The Home Show NEW!

You really have to have a beach cabin right? Make it one of these little cuties ! Striped roof is so very nautical, and I especially liked the white washed plank flooring. Not high on prims, as some seem to be….super lovely to place on your beachfront !

Cleo Design The Home Show NEW!!

This couch is my absolute fav thing ever today ! Pose menu is on the wooden arm part…touch the cushions for options for textures ! Different stripes, plain fabrics makes this so versatile. Light on prims also…lovelove LOVE those industrial looking trolley wheels !

Thanks Cleom ❤

Being Twisted isnt easy

Twisted Hunt Zinnias

One of my favourite annual events is on at the moment, The Twisted Hunt. This years theme is “delirium” and boy-oh-boy there are some totally terrific gifts to search for. I’m a big fan of Zinnias and this year they are in it *squeeee*…the offering IF you can find it…is this twisted Psych-Sofa set. You get everything I’m showing above…the couch has some brilliant poses for the “patient”, and the chair is stuffed with poses for the Psychiatrist…of course no scene of this sort would be complete without some dodgy looking certificates on the wall…a potted fern to soothe peoples jangled nerves and naturally a talking parrot ! This set is SO much fun…thanks Zinnia ❤

Twisted Hunt - Finishing Touches_006

Another must-have-prize is from Finishing Touches. As soon as I saw a preview photo of this Asylum skybox I just HAD to find it. It didn’t disapoint…fabulous texturing lends it a dismal and creepy feel, yet…it would really make a great hang out pad for you and your mates.

Twisted Hunt - Finishing Touches_001

The skybox comes with a lot of extras too…you get the table and chair (great poses!), a couple of tatty rugs…some broken old wooden pallets..I so love the grungy old sink. It’s perfectly done, with scummy dirty water and rusted taps, comeplete with mirror, overhead light and skin crawlingly grubby towel on a rack..nice poses to uhm..clean your hands? !

Twisted Hunt - Finishing Touches_004

It’s possible to buy a few extras for your skybox while you’re in the store…some totally neat items to add appeal, such as this mesh pipe shelving unit…

Twisted Hunt - Finishing Touches_005

and a bath, that on closer inspection Id never.ever. want to get into ! While youre hunting out the prize,take a look around at the add on’s, well worth buying some to create a truly memorable atmosphere…thanks 24Karat ❤

This hunt is never easy, be WARNED !

Grasp This

The +grasp+ group has reached the lofty heights of 10,000 members and if you’re quick, you can join in the celebrations by catching the last couple of days of the 40% off sale they are having (sorry I was a little late on the uptake).

There are some brilliant items to be snapped up here at amazing prices. +grasp+ has a great range of grungey clothing for both guys and girls. I picked up a couple of bits and pieces while I was there, of course. In the above picture you can see the Cargo Jacket which I just had to have. I was ever so tempted to get it in the camo colour but in the end I went with brown and it rocks. There are some amazing details on the attachments and they all fit so easily. Honestly, I had to do very little editing to get this jacket just right for me.

The other item I picked up is one of the über cool Ripped Shirts in black and grey. I love the rough look of this and once again I was tossing up which colour and design to get as they all looked great. It comes on all layers and features well-fitting sculpted sleeves to top it all off.

The 40% off sale at +grasp+ concludes on the 31st of this month so you should definitely run on down while the savings are hot. The sale does not include their new releases however. You should also take a look at the group gifts while you’re down there and pick some of them up, but the group does carry a L$50 joining fee (that’s well worth it, trust me). Congrats +grasp+!
