Time for a break.(Freebie).

Doh, not only did I forget to prim check I didn’t even pick up a copy of this simple but quality gift from Apple Fall!  You know Apple Fall is known not only for its stunning designs but also more than reasonable prims so I think a build like this will be very low primmed.

This is the New York Apartment which is easy to understand when you look out of the window.  To get this you have to use the TP just outside of the mainshop doorway and TP to the demo and you will see the large price tag on the wall but it’s been set to ZERO Lindens.

There is also a Golden Apple Hunt going on at Apple Fall, you have to get the Hud, just at the LM, and wear it as you search for the apples.  When you have the full set you can score a super prize….I’m guessing that last bit as I still only have 5 of them so far but it’s time to return to RL.

PS. I promise next post will be wearables.

I’m not finished shopping.(Freebies).

I’ve taken the pictures of the Freebies in the Theory shop rather than grab em, run home, rezz and snap because I want to continue looking in this shop.

This Eggnog punch bowl doesn’t give you a cup of yummy egg nog when you touch it, which is a shame,  but is not only just 3 prims and editable but so shiny it looks very metallic and is a lovely item to pop on a table or sideboard.

I decided I was going to have a proper saunter around this shop and spotted, cos I click on almost everything, that near to the Punchbowl is this “Trencher” which is an old dough mixing trough.  It also is FREE which means I now have to walk through the whole shop and click on everything else to see if there are some other hidden freebies.

Actually once I’ve had a good look inside I might check out the shopping sim it’s on because it looks pretty interesting.

PS I’m kidding about the “Yummie Egg Nog” because I’m British and we don’t drink it.

Are you lost?(Updated)

People use SL for lots of reasons, it’s fun to play dressing up, you can interact with people all over the world, create your dream home and of course nookie and shopping BUT SL is a bit like a large city in that so much seems to be going on and everyone else seems to be having so much fun and you just feel like a tiny little ant in a big World and you’re missing out.

Of course, there are some amazing Role Play sims and communities but I for one have never been able to get into that mindset to be a good player plus I wouldn’t really have the time needed for good RP.

Anyhow the whole point of this random post is I think I have found a home for the lost n lonely, although you don’t actually have to rent a home.  Quite a few weeks ago I stumbled upon the Orchard Heights Sims and I’ve been in the group ever since.

Orchard Heights consists of 14 sims landscaped and decored to perfection.  These are rental sims but from what I’ve seen each house is stunning and each sim has a sorta theme to it ie beach, woodlands.  I would struggle to chose where to rent if I was looking for a home BUT from being in the group I can see that it’s more than just home rentals it is, in fact, a whole community and so many events are put on, every day there is a breakfast get together, films are played in SL for you to watch in RL and on and on a really lovely and genuine attempt to give people a place to be and something to do.

It goes without saying you do not have to be a renter and you only need to be in the group to be informed of these regular events and although these are RP sims I think in most cases the RP actually consists of you just living there and being a good resident.

Now for the cop-out, I’ve been popping in and out of these sims just trying to get pictures to show you but I have lag issues with the sims which is actually a real bummer as I would love to use them for backdrops and in fact, photography is encouraged but I just lag.  So I’m going to put the link to the Rental office, trust me even that is a gorgeous build in a lovely setting, and the link to 2 of the Orchard Heights Flickr accounts so you can see for yourself what I’m talking about.  You can use the LM’s given to you in the rental shop to TP and check out all the different sims for yourself and there is lots of hangout places just for those who don’t even want to be in a group but would just like to loiter in a lovely setting.

Faith has just posted that the info note you can get does suggest you lower your “Drawer to 64” then this will make it so much better and you’re damned right I’m going to do that.  Sometimes it’s payback in that you pack sims with stunning landscapes, builds, decor etc it can be laggy to some but adjusting your settings won’t detract from your enjoyment and in fact increase it.  Thanks Faith.

PS Just because I’m a lag B*itch doesn’t mean you will be.

PPS That isn’t a picture of one of the sims it’s just a random picture I took this morning.

I should be working but….(Freebie).

But instead of working I’m Sim Hopping and came across the “Special Moments” shop (above the doorway it says The Plaza) which I’d already been too and since the GG is still out and I already had it a quick TP home, rezz, snap and here it is.

A very pink, pink lemonade dispenser only 2 prims and ont touch and you get a nice glass of pink lemonade to slurp on.  This and another Gift are to be found just at the entrance to the shop. The other gift is a lit up VIP sign which I will probably use some time as a prop in a picture.

I should be working but I found a Twix in the bottom of the drawer, I must have hidden it a long time ago and forgot about it, and I’m just gonna have a lazy Monday sim hopping.

Oh gosh, I’ve been super busy in real life as its – what we call- a Bank Holiday weekend . Just means we get Monday off work and everrrryone goes a bit nuts partying yay! Anywayyy a real quick post about a fahbulous item thats in the latest round of Perfect Ten. It’s by Lunar Seasonal Designs and is a Platform House. I haven’t had time to take a multitude of photos as per usual – but here it is in all its glory. Basically it’s all you could need & want in a  home but without walls – mmhmm – new concept which is utterly brilliant. LSD always has plenty of features and colour change options – no change with this item either. The animations for the kitchen are fantastic, there is even a bar area at the rear and a niftily fitted in bathroom. Go take a peek, its all set up for you to play with PLUS 50% discount during the event. Thanks Luna ❤

I have it all! (FREEBIES)

Woah! So I finally got over to the Cosmopolitan event which turns out to be celebrating 5 years in SL and you know what that means?  Nope no cake but even better…OOODLES and OOODLES of gifties and even better the gifts are so good!

OK ignore the room I’m in as it’s actually a Rare Gacha win from this event, yes I do spend Lindens lol, but the rest is all freebies and I was having a very pleasant time just rezzing stuff, trying the clothes on and of course seeing what is editable and then I get the heads up that this event only has a few more days left to go!!!

So I snapped some basic piccies in my Nams setting of what I already had out so you can see the quality and yes this shabby chic/romantic fireplace is editable LOL.

It’s obvious whats what in this picture but if you don’t need any new decor items don’t worry, shoes, boots, clothes, nails, jewelry etc are all there as well and from well-known SL shops.

The dress in the top picture is from one of my fav SL shops and I loved this metallic with sheer bits outfit as well.  There was a pair of jeans as well as a halter top that I had briefly tried on and that top is a keeper for me when I refind it.

I will be logging back in-world soon to continue with my happy unpacking and sorting out but since this event is in its last few days I didn’t want to delay telling you about it.  So over all really you need to just go and join the Cosmopolitan group, invite in the entry, and click away as there are so many gifts and so many lovely surprises just waiting for you.

Update because I’ve found out we have till the 13th to get grabby so still a reasonable amount of time but at the same time don’t linger.

MP for a Dollarbie.

Just a quickie cos RL is calling.

A sweet Dollarbie from a shop called “The Ruddy Duck”

A simple planter of Hibiscus flowers.  It says “copy and mod” but I haven’t had time to play with it not that it needs to be changed.  So a lovely and simple sweet gift for your home/garden.

“OK, FFS RL I’m COMMING!”
