Keeping in budget!(50Ld & Mention of Freebies).

If you remember last month I gave myself a 500Ld spending limit and it went so well I decided to do the same thing this month, I seriously wish I could do it in RL as I went and spent way too much when I was away!

Outside of the Arcane Spellcaster, the shop from my last post, I spotted an amazing old stagecoach which is how I ended up at “LOVE” a landscaping/decor shopping sim and although I’ve not found that horse and carriage set look what I did find.

I threw my 50Lds at the sign and rushed home and just slapped this paving/water feature down on our sim and snapped away.

I know you can’t make out the size from this picture but this is a perfect size for any courtyard, garden or patio for any sized home and it is mod.  As it’s rezzed only 3 prims.  You get 2 colours a stone shade and this brown shade.

The water effect is EXCELLENT, the way water moves in SL has just become so much better over the years, it’s subtle and yet at the same time distinctive but you will be able to see that for yourself as there is a rezzed example at the LM given.

I can hardly wait to incorporate this into my new home when the seasons change it’s going to look awesome.

There are freebies in this shop but they’ve not changed so I’m not showing you them but if you don’t know this shop

Let me bore you.(Freebies).

Yet another post about something I mentioned in a previous post.

This is supposed to be a “Lady Gaga” pose but this isn’t about me it’s about the backdrop and the black square.

Most of you won’t find this interesting but if you take pictures in SL you will find this gift very handy.

I won’t bore the tits off you about the details apart from it’s free and it comes with a very easy to use Hud which you need to play with it to appreciate it.

This comes from the Andika shop.  Although this shop has poses, and I’ve tried them all, it the AMAZING food decor I think most of us know it for.

I don’t think I’ve shown you the other freebie which is a plate of Blueberry pancakes but I definitely know I haven’t shown you these sweet orange treats.  One-click and you get a wearable version and although not perfect the eating AO is still one of the best in SL.

So pop over to Andika shop grab the sweet treats and the photo tool and have fun.

PS.  I should have thought about changing my settings to allow for shadows because I know my computer can handle them and it would have made the pictures of the backdrop/light more effective but what’s done is done so just think of me casting a shadow.

Total randomness. (Dollarbie & Freebie).

I’m doing what I love to do best and that’s eating and of course random TPing in SL which is how I ended up at the PPC (Prim Pile Creations) shop and this “Around the Grid” hunt prize.

You can just pay 25Lds and buy it but trust me the hint is simple enough for even me to find it and that way it only cost 1Ld.  It’s obviously the skeleton but it does come linked to the chair and there is a patch of grass under it.  YES, EDITABLE…oh I just love that.  TBH as it is and esp for only 6 prims it makes a great item on it’s own but then again you could remove the chair and pop him/her onto one of your own chairs.

Then I went back to LM grab and yet again I’d almost missed another freebie which is this Group Gift.

Because I knew the skeleton was editable I had my fingers crossed and YES this too is editable…I need to get a life as I get way too excited over things in SL being editable lol.

You can strip everything off the top of this tray table or just pick and choose what you like.  A really nice piece of furniture.

BTW The LM takes you to the middle of the sim but the building with these in are just in front of you, just follow all the special deal markers on the ground.  You will also see a rug, not free otherwise I’d have shown you it, but I was rather taken with its patchwork textures.  Once I’ve finished lunch and do another post I’ve LM’d this shop to return to as it’s new to me but not new to SL.

It’s a HUMPDAY! (Mention of Freebies & Stunning Rentals).

RL STINKS WORSE THAN MY SPORT SOCKS! (Seriously it’s not that bad just lots of niggly things but God knows I love a good moan lol).

It’s continued over into SL as I’ve tried on a New Mina demo and it’s OMG I NEED IT but as yet the non-demo version isn’t even out for us bloggers! Then I went and plonked myself in front of a whole load of Lucky Boards with some damned decent prizes, checked that no one was there with my initial as I will not click on a Lucky Board and take a prize from someone else who would probably appreciate it more and nope no one with my initial so when my “Z” came up I clicked and didn’t get the item sent to me.

Then I started mooching and found a stunning rental sim.

Wowser! This is a rental, ONLY 500Ld a week with a massive 424 prim allowance, I’m assuming that prim allowance doesn’t include all the outside clutter.  Inside is empty so you can to rezz your own furniture but it’s such a cosy little nook you could probably stuff it with furniture and still have prims for a boat or two outside.

I’ve just pointed and clicked and used the sims windlight setting but can you imagine how even nicer this place will be if you wanted to play with the windlight setting you could ramp up the Oomph of this place.

I spotted a massive castle which the rent is now overdue and since it’s empty then I suspect the renter won’t be returning so you could finally be the “King of your very own SL castle” and lord it over the rest of the sim.  This is a top-quality build and although it will be a lot more expensive than this lowly beach shack if the prim allowance is as generous then you will be paying a fair price.

It’s a standard rental system, you will see the rental em board thing on the edge of your mini little island you simply click and pay.  There doesn’t seem to be a rental office but in one of the sim owners profile is the link to their blog and from there you can see all the vacant rentals over their 4 sims.

I’ve logged out now as I really have to do some RL ass-kicking but when I log back inworld I’m going to have a mug of coffee and a clear conscience so I can have a really good look around all 4 sims even if it’s just to LM places for use as backdrops and I think that there is also a smattering of shops on these sims, it was a shop that brought me to this sim in the first place, but they are as blended into the sim as much as the private homes.

I almost forgot the Lucky Boards lol.  You’ve probably already know the shop, Mangual as I recognise the subscribers gifts as having being previously blogged.  There are a lot of Lucky Boards and you don’t need to join a group to win a prize.

Home for rent.

Big enough to burn a corpse.(Freebies).

I promise you I did go out and do something else for a change but I’m home now and so to kill time before I go do something else I decided to check to see if these freebies were still out and happily they are.

I can’t remember what they called this but it’s a Chimnea?  Although you can’t really make out the proportions I can assure you I’m actually stood behind it lol.  So a pretty substantial patio filling item.

If you need something smaller then no problem as this is also included in the gift bag.

A Ying and Yang tabletop item. The water even ripples and check out the close up of the little fishes.

I think both items are 5 prims and not editable.

You find these in the gift bag on the reception desk and it’s set to be bought for 0Lds by anyone.  There is 2 items of clothing in the bags as well, one for him and one for her but go for these not those.

Creeping Pays. Just an update & a little bit spend y& reminder of freebie.

Because I am obviously addicted to SL and spend way too much time inworld I sometimes come across issues with vendors ie things not set for sale, group invites not working, borked LMs etc Which brings me back to a recent post about a shop called B-Made and their new Group Gift.  The LM was dumping our sorry asses into the river but now, Woo Hoo, it takes you right to the entrance.

Anyhow when I do find an inworld issue I always drop the seller a little note as I just think they would prefer to know rather than not and end losing any potential sales all because of an easy to fix issues. I NEVER expect anything in return but in this case, Ben Lev the owner/creator of B-Made sent me a 200Ld GIFT CARD!  Then he even upped it by another 29Lds so I could buy this set.

Obviously, I’ve just clicked and snapped them as they are in the shop for the simple reason that I won’t be using these till we change our sims season.  I’m going to turn my side into what I hope is something resembling a British coastal Quay scene and these old crumbling concrete columns are just perfect.  Not only in their design and texturing but even the largest piece is just 1prim!

Honestly, as I’ve mentioned I have already bought 4 things and I was 100% going to return at the end of my month’s enforced cheapness to buy the pack as at 229Lds for this quality and uniqueness it’s worth it.

Also even if you don’t want to visit the shop still go for the sim, it’s so well landscaped that even though there are shops on it it’s a perfect backdrop for some picture posing.

PS. If you can’t remember the Freebie I’m putting the link to that post here as well as the updated LM.

This post includes my two fav words.(5Ld old gift).

This little round flower bed is perfect for a garden of any size but if you have a small plot of land then it’s even better.

I betcha can guess what I’m going to say next? COPY and MOD, my two fav words and you can really break this one down to just the rocks and soil and now I’m wondering if I could even remove the soil, I decided to log out as my tum was rumbling and I need my lunch but when I log back in I might just try that out.

It’s one of a number of old gifts which are being sold off at a very discounted price at Myth.  I do know Faith blogged the tea set, or it could have been me, but there are some more decor items for you to check out.
