Boxed (free unusual home).

Time for a clear out, time to ditch the groups that even though you may have paid money to join don’t give you squat and also checking out your old groups can also remind you of why you joined in the first place and this “home” is a prime example of a (free to join) GG.

Box

More detail than you think at first.  The box is raised up on a palette and as you can see from my average height AV it’s generously sized

Box1A mix of desperation and hope, the cute little mouse/rat is holding a sign which says something like “I squeak for cheese”.  Nice touch is that this is a linked item so if you’re not keen on the filthy mattress but love the box or love the bed hate the box, can’t stand the mouse you can fiddle with it till it’s your own Home Sweet Home.

Box3New hair which for some reason in SL I don’t buy a lot because I know what I like and I’m really very boring when it comes to hair but sadly even I had to update my old faithful Ford and change to Andy (the names of the hair).  Fortunately I got just what I wanted from Ink.  My only moan is that although the hair comes in a single colours which does cut the price down to just 150Lds there wasn’t a really dark brown that is my SL and RL preference.

Confession time.  Picked this jumper up from the now defunct Decembers The Gacha Arcade Event or rather from one of the Satellite markets that have now BOOOMED in popularity.  Bought it before Christmas so this Jumper, until ᴊɪɴ ʏɪ ᴡᴇɪ (kiddreamz) releases it in his shop Dynasty it can only be found in the remaining Gacha Yardsales.  Honestly I bought it for Zan because I thought it was a girls hoodie but nope it’s for me and I’m sure I paid just a low 50Lds for it.  Look at that texturing the knitted sections are so realistic, the hood which you can’t see is the same knitted fabric. The layers are also included.  Had a struggle to see some of the demos in the shop so I’ve added the link to his MP shop and you can pick up some of the demos there but if everything is as good as the Nordic Hoodie then tbh not sure if you even need to try one out first.

Sweet Relief

Rain has finally broken through the incessant heat so I’m sheltering inside not from the heat but the rain but it means I can finally blog the Maitreya Sale.  A massive 50- 70% off everything from Top to Tail (hair and shoes and everything else in between).

Mait2Wasn’t an easy shot to take because this comes without a top or even panties! How rude! What it does come with is a more than reasonable amount of stocking shades a total of 12.  One of the great sale items going on at Maitreya the first they have had in 3 years so of course being a massive fan of their clothes and esp their hair I TPed and then TPed back out because “the world and his wife” were there.  Happily now the crush has died down I was able to grab myself some bargains.  This Girdle and stocking set is only a  100Lds of retro satin sexiness. The waist is a seamlessly blended sculpted slightly flared belt.  A beautiful salmon colour with the sheen of satin. Maitreya’s texturing is one of the best.

Mait1A simple body suit but those darker patched on my hips are actually resizeable ruffles which you can wear with or without so it’s a stand alone outfit or a top for jeans or skirt.   It maybe a standard bodysuit but because it comes from Maitreya it’s more than that.  Beautiful texturing, the ruffles are a lovely touch and easily tweaked to change the size.

Both of these items are non mesh and if your still not into mesh then this is the place to pick clothes up which have the quality that stands up so well against mesh.

NolitaThis however is one of Maitreya’s mesh dresses and this as well as another one of theirs is the first mesh dress I owned.  Even at the time it wasn’t the cheapest but it is such an elegant timeless, ageless style that it was worth the Lindens.  Reduced to 225Lds which may still be pricy to a lot of people but of course the mesh items come with demos and trust me grab this one and try it on.  I of course picked a more subtle colour but there is a whole range of shades for all items.

HAIR HAIR HAIR Shouting that out because you must not miss the hair.  Prices slashed to 75 for packs of shades. Amazing hair with hats or scarves, great colouring etc. Not wearing one of their hairs in this photo but I swear I think I now own them all.  LM given for each shop however they’re all together and within easy walking.

Little Lamb

Hair useSeems to have been a looonnnggg time since Lamb Bellic has had a new hair out so the moment she sent out a notice I was there with a bunch of Lindens grasped in my sweaty paw.  Ennie Meanie Minie Mo….I picked Chelsea Girls, a cute hat n hair comb with subtle little ears.  You can change the colour of the hat but a slightly different way from usual in that you need to find a Sandbox or your home where you have 133 free prims so you can rezz it on the ground click the hair and you get a choice of 7 colours all shaded and very realistic looking.  I went for the Yummie Chocolate Bars pack and you get a total of 4 shades named after well-known choccie bars.  What Lamb to me is more known for is her amazing shading.  Even in the more normal colours you get subtle and lovely shading which means your hair is not flat looking.  If you’re into colours though this is where she excels.  Lamb Bellic was the first place I bought Ombre hair from so to me she brought Ombre into SL before Ombre was fashionable.

Lots of demos a couple of freebies you will be so tempted.
