The Wash 10th Anniversary ! (Free & $10L)

Oh lala its The Wash’s birthday! Zan and I both love this event and go a bit wild as we always find such bargains. Above I found a brilliant Autumn bench & table from Lunar Seasonal Designs, both $10L each, both with texture changing for the wood and both with fluttering leaves! Really low prim and some scrummy poses in the bench. I resized the table to coffee table, dead simple to do. (Free items are : Keepsake box by Pan, pearl pumpkin from The Artists Shed, gifts around the sim by designers – find them,there are heaps!) The kitties and pumpkin decor is by Kitty Creations, again – just $10L.

I bought the grumpy cat sweater and the tippy toes shoes, both $10L – sweater is by Park Place Casuals and the shoes are by Lindy. The Keepsake box is a gift from Pan, the front opens and you can add your own photos, dead cute. Btw, SL was playing up for me yesterday, things rezzing in and out of focus, apologies if some items aren’t as clear as Id normally have them!

Friday Find – dont miss it!

Funky Junk $50L -Shelby Cottage 43Li

It’s no secret that Zan & I love Fifty Linden Friday – and this week is brilliant . I logged in and dashed over to Funky Junk to grab this gorgeous home called “Shelby”. Ohmai, $50L and only 43 Li !!! The prettiness doesn’t stop on the outside though (which can be SO disappointing right?) Inside its packed with beautiful textures, a gallery bedroom accessed by a ladder with built-in teleporter. The chimney even chuffs out smoke !

Funky Junk detail

Heres a few details to dribble over , the bedroom has thee most fantastical window to gaze out from, the roof is made of old worn tiles, and around and about are trellis’ with roses clambering up. Charming and pretty, don’t miss it !

Chez Moi - Lost & Found

I hung the new tyre swing from Chez Moi in the porch area – various colours and heaps of animations for singles & couples. This will be on sale at the next round of Lost & Found on the 22nd Feb.

Down on the farm

Chez Moi - Northmont Farm

A new round of Tres Chic has kicked off and if you mosey on down there you will find this superb set from Chez Moi. The theme for this round is “Lets fall into Fall” and this collection of pieces is really purrrfect. Above is the Pasture wagon which has 94 animations (single and couple) , I adore the singleton poses – cute, sassy and dreamy all rolled into one. Behind me you can also see some of the “Fence & horses” set, the horses are so realistic and it contains 70 animations (single and couple).

Chez Moi NEW!!

There is also the “Romantic hay pile” which contains 95 animations (single and couple) & Several wearable props to complete the fun. I really like that the items from Chez Moi do cater really well for singlepringles as well as couples. What you might miss in my photo is the tree foliage has some sweet twinkly lights in it, beautiful and so atmospheric.

Chez Moi NEW!

Little things make my day, a spade leant up against the fence, the dainty grass with white flowers and a scattering of Autumnal leaves around the hay bales. Thank you Nanda ❤

Ahhhhh refreshing

Aphrodite Happy place new

Aphrodite are in this round of the Swank event, they have this gorgeous beach hideout “happy place” in both PG & Adult versions. ($199L & $299L) Its got loads of poses, mostly for couples but I also found some for singlepringles (and their dog of course). Sweet piles of pillows to lounge on, if you touch the ladder you also get a menu for various décor items that appear, such as curtain light, ivy, lantern etc – adorable touch!

Aphrodite Happy place NEW! - TUKINOWAGUMA – hair Alette NEW 175l -

My French bulldog got very interested in my bowl of cookies – yes yes there is FOOD in the menu too ! O.o must mention my new hair-do its by TUKINOWAGUMA and is called Alette, there are two styles to choose from both just $175L, the HUD for colour change is massive – great value. Seemed to be some great items on offer in this round of Cosmopolitan.

Aphrodite Lemoncello & truffles NEW

A week or so ago Aphrodite also released various trays of drinki-poo’s and nibbles – this is the Lemoncello version complete with delicious looking truffles – just touch and you’re offered a drink or chocolate – yummmm. For the curious amongst you – Limoncello is one of my all time favourite drinks – infact Player got me drunk as a skunk on it a few months ago! Its lemony and refreshing , I have mine with ice or a mixer which Player says is a dreadful thing to do but oh well, Im English.

FYI: Limoncello (pronounced lee-mon-CHAY-low) is an Italian lemon liqueur known for its refreshing sweet and tangy flavor. It is made from lemon rinds, alcohol, sugar and patience.

Limoncello has its roots in Southern Italy, primarily along Italy’s Amalfi Coast and Sorrentine Peninsula, known for their meticulous lemon cultivation. Locales of production include the Sorrentine Peninulsa and the Amalfi coast and the Gulf of Naples and in Procida, Ischia and Capri. It is also produced in Sicily and Sardinia.

Although traditionally served as a digestive, or after-dinner drink that aids in digestion, limoncello can be enjoyed at other times of the day, particularly in a cocktail. You can also enjoy it in a varity of foods as well. Limoncello can be a wonderful ingredient in cooking    and baking.

Reach for the stars (hunt)

Strawberry Carriage - Hunt gift

I saw a hunt advertised and off I went to investigate. It’s the Star Search hunt, and its pretty easy as the stars aren’t all that hidden. This is a paid hunt, meaning each “prize” you find costs a few $, only $10L so quite the bargain really.

Now, I’m not one to complain usually, especially about gifts and hunts, but if you’re going to charge something for a hunt prize and its more than $1, and you’re not giving any previews of the gifts contained on a blog or something – please please please don’t label your prize “hunt gift” inside the box ! If I am going to spend my precious dosh on your stuff, yes, even just $10L, Id like some sort of idea of what it is first. Is it going to be useful or amusing to me ?, I don’t like to feel tricked into buying something, and trust me – because it’s a “hunt” wont make me part with my lindens willy nilly – ok moan over back to our normal coverage. Wardrobe Malfunction (they said it was a carriage on the box – so I went for it yay!) have this fun strawberry shaped carriage as their prize. Its got singles and couples poses inside and two single poses on the drivers seat. So beautifully done, the interior is rather plushhhhh and the little light even switches on and off – dead chuffed with this. You’re looking for pink stars, some in stores some scattered around the sim – have fun ❤

The Arcade - Scarlet Creative - Mansion Rare win

Its almost time for a new round of The Arcade and I for one will be hitting up the machines and the yardsales to get my fix. Above is the rare win form Scarlet Creative , the “Amelie inspired by spring Mansion”. The colour tones on this are exceptionally beautiful. The roof is a teal green – blue hue, it really sets off the colour of the walls magnificently. Each play is only 50L and the other prizes (lounger,bath,sofa,towel rail,basket) are all worth a try for too. I’m always surprised by the space inside Charlotte’s homes, outside they can appear to be quite delicate little builds, but inside so much room.

Scarlet Creative - The Arcade

I do get a bit obsessed with the textures in the Scarlet Creative builds especially the antiquated plaster effects – I know that’s weird but heyho ! The thing is I do own a place in France (just outside Paris) and so much of the textures are like these – its why I fell in love with the place – its not an excuse honest! Anyhow, many levels to explore and fine features to admire. Thanks Charlotte ❤

My new friends

Free Bird Budgies NEW!

I was sooo excited when I saw the new Budgie pets from Free bird that I zoomed over straight away to snap one up. I ended up getting two birdies ! Then I bought some for Zan ! I adore budgies and have nearly always had one or two as pets in real life. My last two died a while back, so in their memory I named my SL budgies after them (peep & chirp) I was dead lucky and snagged a rare pink cage first try *squeee*. Anyyyyway a little about how they work. The cage and birds are in gacha machines, I can’t imagine you’d be unhappy about any of the wins, they are all so lovely.

Important note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR FOOD FOR THESE BIRDS.

Fabulous, I’m a bit jaded of buying food for pets in SL, all you have to do with these little lovelies is click on the cage at least once a week and choose “tend”, voilà, all good to go. You can also take them into your inventory and they wont die or get sick – hurrah! If you join the free bird group (its free) you can also claim your gift of the snazzy beaded swing you see in my cage. There are other accessories too – I bought a cuttlefish for mine. If you do forget to tend to your new babies – there is a bottle of vitamins that will treat the whole cage (99L) , you can have up too four birds in one cage – brilliant! They sing and hop about, play on the swing, eat, drink and generally behave like budgies do. If you go to the store there is a very good board that explains how it all works – its dead simple to be honest but READ it anyway. Ohhhhh don’t be afraid about prims – it’s really really low !
