Look to your right and behind you.(Freebie(S)).

Hilly Haalan as we all know always have great group gifts out for us so I don’t blog them as often because you should already have them on your regular must-visit list but when I saw this top I had to go get it.

This isn’t my fav colour it was the white one which had more of the crochet top look but I wasn’t happy with the picture I’d taken and I can’t log back in just yet so I’m going with this much better picture. Not only do you get lots of fits but 4 texture choices, the white one I’ve mentioned this bright yellow, a subtle floral pattern and a subtle tropical pattern.  And of course, those beads are a great finishing touch.  I know that there was a pair of flat shoes and I think the other new GG was a dress(?).

Once you’ve grabbed this and the other newer freebies scan a bit to the right along the row of new/discounted items to a gown which is pretty unique and will make you stand out but that does come with a. not unreasonable, price tag but for a Cheap B* like me too much plus I already own a lot of gowns.

Then turn around because although most of us know that there is a small room behind the LM where the old gifts are stored and I did pop in to see if there was a pair of shorts to go with the top and oddly enough even though there is a lot of gifts in there, there are no shorts so I’ve used my own.

No skill needed.(Freebies).

I finally took off my massive feet, I did enjoy stomping around but it was hard to keep on taking them off to put on shoes.

So I changed into a pair of Uggs which I do believe were an old hunt gift from Hilly Halaan so I TPed over just to check out to see out of if they had hopefully been moved to the small building/room that contains all the old Hilly Halaan group gifts and they’re not there but this outfit and a pair of heels are new GG’s.

Obviously, this is now a “classic” SL design but it is in Hilly Haalan quality and that means a nice hud of colours and textures so I ain’t complaining.  I didn’t grab the heels though.

So if you’ve not done so yet, where you TP in turn around and you will see that little build/room and check out some damned good quality gifts.

This Santa hat/hair is the only one so far that I have been happy to blog but then again this is an Argrace gift.  I cannot remember the last time I bought a hair from Argrace so I can’t tell you much about the size of the hud, prices etc but the hair with this Santa hat does come with a big hud of colour options and of course is free.

Last bit is my background.  I occasionally use backdrops and one of the shops I love is called “Backdrop City” and just for us, they have this absolutely stunning sim set up.

Check this out.

The whole sim is idiot proof, if you want to take a stunning Christmas picture then this is the place for you not just because it’s so pretty but they have used some of the best props and landscaping in SL, they have the windlight set perfectly but mainly because you have REZZING RIGHTS!  Obviously keep your rezzed stuff to PG rated, low prim and of course clean your sh*t up after you but of course there is more than anyone could need without having to rezz anything out of their invent.

Right next to the snowman is a TP to the ground where there is a Christmas Market going on.  I did confess a couple of posts ago that I caved in and treated myself to some Lindens and I’m now at that Christmas market buying backdrop after backdrop as lots of them are really bargain priced.  I’ve had to log out but I can’t wait to log back in.

OH GOOD GRIEF! (Hunt).

OMG although I knew that there is an SL Frees and Offers hunt going on I had NO idea of how many amazing shops have put out a freebie for us.  When it comes to hunts I usually just scroll through the pictures and grab one or two items but you’re NOT going to see a post off me for days as the list of shops involved in this hunt is not only vast but I am going to visit each and every one of them!

This is just a prime example of one of the gifts but then again the Hilly Haalan shop is and has always been extremely generous with the GG’s and offers so in this case you not only get this coat in 4 colours and this bonus Olive colour but also the hair I’m wearing.  You and I know I am totally spoilt when it comes to Mina’s hairs but I’m loving this super shiny hair.  And yes you also get a choice of colours which I haven’t tried yet but this is the “ginger”.  Hold up there is more because you also get boots to match but I didn’t spot them till after I took this picture but wait! there is MORE because inc in the gift is 2 dresses and a pair of Uggs!  Not tried them on yet but by the time the weekend comes I will have a folder stuff with prizes and I can sit and relax as I work my way through the hoard.

The Link is to the SL frees and offers blog and there is a whole list of LMs and hints and what you’re looking for is an Autumn leaf.

A BIG FAT THANK YOU ♥ should go to the shops who have thrown themselves into this hunt but of course the team behind SL Frees and Offers because I know all too well how much time and effort it takes out of your daily lives to do this sort of thing and their dedication to the cause of cheapness lol means that we all benefit so greatly.  BTW from my quick scan of the list, it’s nice to see there are items for men and decor so something for everyone.

PS. Check out the Special Offers at the Hilly Haalan LM, there is a really lovely skater skirt/top combo which I think is 99Ld but I’m loving the textures and can see this is a perfect “go to” outfit.

Freebie & Promo

Popped over to Hilly Haalan last night to check out a new promo and picked up this sweet little sweater dress for free ! Also comes with the shoes which are rather classy. I can’t recall if the group is free to join or not – I think it is, it was when I joined – let me know ! The sizes are xs – L with an alpha – fitted really well over my Physique mesh body. My pose with the little doggy was from Sam Poses, group is free to join and there are quite a few group gifts on the wall. This pose was one of the group gifts and it’s just sweeeeet!

I did snap up the $99L promo – which was a proper steal if only for the shoes. I was a tad disappointed with the fit of the trousers if I’m honest – they just didn’t sit well around my waist but your mileage may vary of course depending on your shape. It’s a great deal anyway, adore the shoes and bag, the sweater is nice also. You get a Hud with six choices for each piece excluding the bag. Fits:

Maitreya Lara
Belleza Venus – Isis – Freya
SLink Physique – Hourglass
5 Standard Sizes for Classic Avatar

I’m not sorry.(Freebies).

I, like everyone else, as soon as I logged in and read a note saying that there is a new GG out at Hilly Haalan TPed over and as I was flailing about over a crowd of AV’s grabbing it I remembered that Hilly Haalan also keeps her old GG’s out and so once I’d grabbed the new I went hunting for the old.

Since I’m not showing you the new and if you don’t see it posted anywhere else let me tell you it’s bright, bold texturing in so many fits and totally shop quality but way too summery for this Autumn girl so I will leave it as a nice surprise for you.

I think this was last years Autumn gift from Hilly Haalan’s and although you only get 2 shades, this and a grey, and 1 fit I think you can see it’s a great colour and a style that will fit everyone.

All of Hilly’s gifts are shop quality and although some are now showing their ages the room they’re kept in is packed and you should easily find a whole load of wearables.

I forgot I had these boots so it was a great reminder to dust them off to start using them again.  Lots of sizes and a small hud but it’s this dark brown floral shade which again is perfect for the next season.

So remember there IS a NEW Freebie at Hilly Haalans and make sure to check out the GG next to the newest one as although I know I didn’t show it to you Faith might have or we didn’t blog it at all and if you need a long classic evening gown it’s perfect.

PS. To find ALL of the freebies/group gifts turn around from the LM and you will see a small stand alone shop which is packed with all of the old Group Gifts.

PPS.  That’s my new trashed greenhouse, not free, as I always say if you see something in the background or worn never hesitate to drop either I or Faith a note or leave a comment and we will let you know where it came from.
