Having a blast.(10Ld Marketplace offers ‘n’ Dollarbies).

It’s pretty darn windy here in the UK but oddly mild.  So I’ve rescued the recycling bin from the middle of the road, moved the broken branch off my Lilac tree and keeping my fingers crossed my greenhouse remains standing.

Somehow I ended up mooching around the MP(Marketplace) and found the Mehandi Henna hand tatts I wanted and just as good they only cost me 10Lds.

There was nothing wrong with the ones I blogged a couple of posts ago but they were black more like tattoos rather than the reddish brown of Henna.  You get the Omega Applier and System Layers.  Although you can’t see it I am wearing the “Daily Eyeshadow Pallette” which is pretty good and only 1Ld.  I also bought the “Swan Eyelashes” which again for 10Lds are pretty good but they were too dark for this more natural look.

“Sexy Girl”.(10Lds Marketplace goodies).

Just a quickie cos I want to work my way through the 25Ld Tues list today as I keep on missing it but I found some nice n cheap stuff on the MP which isn’t bad at all.

This sheer outfit comes pantieless, for decencies sakes I popped a pair of my own on.  This outfit comes in 4 mesh body fits and the details are in the MP description.

Because this only cost 10Lds I decided to buy something else just to see if it too is wearable and not bad at all!

This is an oversized sweater with a backpack and I’m more impressed with it than I thought I would be.  The backpack isn’t separate so you can just wear the top on its own but it does make a nice little look.  You can change the colour of the sweater and I really like the 3 colours, very bright, summery and vibrant.  So many mesh bod fits so no issue there.

There is an inworld shop but there is very little in it and nothing thats on the MP shop seems to be in the inworld shop so MP only.

PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies.

This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one.

I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.

This new hair is only out at Kustom 9 so don’t even bother trying to get in there esp as it’s only just opened so it’s gonna be heaving!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog because you can see whats up for sale at this event and as always you can use the Mina Mainshop to go check the demo out in lag-free heaven.

PS.  I don’t bang on about it enough but the Group Membership for Mina’s in only 200Lds and she’s recently added a new hair to the room that has all of the shop quality hairs in it.

The dress is the dollarbie and there is a reason the hem is slightly cropped in the picture and I bet you can guess why?  Yup no SLink fit but you do get a fit for SLink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya & Isis and although I could find a nice fit it wasn’t a perfect fit.  Again you may have the mesh bod that does fit or of course you don’t even use one and have an alpha in your invent which will work.  The sleeves are attached as well which is a lovely touch but that might make a struggle if you do go for your own Alpha.

You might want to rush as obviously this is a lovely Valentines pressie off Spirit but it is only on the MP(Marketplace) and it might be pulled soon as Valentines is well and truly over.

You can skip all of this part as it’s just boring waffling…I’m good at that.

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and remember even if you’re on your own there is no reason why you shouldn’t make sure you have a treat to spoil yourself or in my case our cat because we remembered it was his RL BD on Valentines lol. So me and my OH probably spent more on him than each other plus we spring cleaned the house so let’s face it Valentines for a lot of people is overrated lol.

I’ve also been MIA because it was also my RL BD(say that so it rhymes) and I’ve had a lovely time which has only been slightly marred by Windows desperately trying to force me to do a window 10 update even changing my computers setting to allow it!  I won and Windows lost, this round at least lol but if you don’t want the windows update then check they haven’t changed your settings.

I’m also trying to sort out sim out, I should have maybe started next week rather than this as we stripped it all back and I started to rezz away but then had to stop as RL was fun, fun and more fun but now I need to get sorted and get all those bald sim patches filled, get my new studio sorted and make my mind up what house I’m finally going to live in for the next several months which I have to say is much more fun in SL than RL lol.

Pearls before swine.(Super discount & mention of Freebies).

You’re gonna have to go shopping on the SL Marketplace for this discounted item from Persefona.

This is a shop I don’t actually like going to because it has a selection of pose packs with add ons such as these pink pearls and it’s too tempting to buy, buy and buy some more.

In the top picture, I’m wearing all of the pearls but you can “add” as many or as few as you want.  The bottom picture is the other set of pearls in the pack, not worn in the top picture, and that’s pearls to frame your head.  Again I’m wearing them all but you can wear any amount.

The bottom picture also shows them glowing.  You get a Hud with this set, as well as some nice poses but I didn’t use them, and this Hud allows you to change the glow and also the transparency which I didn’t try out but I wish I had now because I’m wondering if you couldn’t make them so transparent you could wear them when you’re out and about in SL and have these faint glowing pearls floating around you.

At the moment these are only on offer for just 20Lds and on the Marketplace BUT check out her in-world shop as I do know there are FREEBIES in there, a couple of pretty floral headdresses, some Autumnal leaves to be worn in your hair etc

PS If you’re wondering I caved into my pose addiction and ended up buying a set from the Marketplace shop…I am weak in the face of temptation!

Seriously SL!!!(Bargain).

I’ve just splurged my last 25Lds only to find I’m gonna have to splurge some more because one of our regular readers has just dropped the bomb that Trompe Loeil is having a blinking 50% SALE!  Seriously how’d I miss that…ok I know it’s because I get sent so many notices/notes etc things often slip me by which is why I truly appreciate it when people give me the heads up about something esp when it’s as good as this.  Have to say the sim is, of course, PACKED to the rafters and even worse the countdown started yesterday which means today is the LAST day to squeeze in!

So basically as I was chucking stuff out I checked out the NN Marketplace shop to see if this still had this and they do and since my copy has been eaten by my invent I just bought it.

It’s a massive spooky skybox and perfect for those who are planning a Halloween partay, me? I just open my front door and throw some sweets are the trick or treaters and tell them to “bog off” but having said that I do bake Pumpkin pies cos I love em.

Back to the build.

Although these pictures have a frame on them I haven’t edited the pictures and even in my sims Nams setting you can see they’re pretty atmospheric so if you change your windlight settings I think you will get some very interesting effects.

Comes in a rezzer or you can rez it in edit mode and there are a few extra spooky ghosts you can have flying around.  For some reason the rezzer wouldn’t derezz it, the rezzer is in the well, but although this is a really big skybox it’s all in big chunks so only took a few clicks to pack it all away.  That also means that if there are some bits of it you don’t like then you can remove or move them.  The prim count is just over 100 but this skybox is a perfect setting for a Halloween party or if your incline to the spooky side of SL a nice little home.

PS I will be stripping right down to my Alpha and TPing as soon as I can to Tromphe.

I swear I’m not superstitious butttttt (Cheapies & Freebies).

Blimey for me personally Friday the 13th has certainly lived up to it’s rep and I wasn’t going to do a post but then I read a notice from Mina Nakamura and it was a case of “YESSS” something has finally gone right.

OK, First of all, I am wearing a super bargain cropped sweater which only cost 10Lds or in my case 20Lds as I forgot I already have it and in fact wear it a lot! I picked it up from the MP(Marketplace) as the MUTE shop isn’t inworld anymore.  Although I’ve had this particular top now for years it’s still a fine and wearable basic jumper with a colour Hud of 8 options.

As it happens everything in the Mute MP shop is only 10Lds and I can guarantee that it is great quality.  If I remember correctly the owner of Mute was shutting up shop and she decided to go out with bang and reduced everything to 10Lds and people went “cray cray” grabbing as much as they could but then she, Jayzee Netizen decided she would keep her shop open but the prices would stay the same.  There was a bit of a backstory to it which I am not too sure on but the long as short of it was a lot of people could buy some really affordable wearables.  The inworld shop got closed down years ago but the stuff is now all up in the MP.  If in doubt just buy the one item to check the quality but I bet you will log back in for more.

There is a reason I’m in Mina’s and it’s not because I’m wearing a Mina’s hair, I’m nearly ALWAYS wearing a Mina hair LOL it’s because of a notice that was put out.  Took me a while to muddle through it because my brain has had enough of “Adulting” today so I decided to cut & paste and you can read it for yourself.

“Last Chance Vendors” will go live on Sunday at 12:00 am SLT and will give you the last chance to pick up the gifts for a very discounted price of 50 LS.  MINA V.I.P. members receive 50% DISCOUNT on the “Last Chance Vendors” when wearing the MINA V.I.P. group tag
The amount of gifts is not limited, but the vendors will be live for 24 hours only. After that period the exclusive colors will not be available again.

So… if you missed out on a midnight gift you really wanted, be sure to drop by at the store by midnight SLT when the Last Chance Vendors go live!
Some creators offer an optional add-on color-hud for a discounted price. Keep your eyes out for those!”

So basically you have just 24 hours to slap a board on Sat and then hit the other one on Sunday and since there doesn’t seem to be anything about having to join a group I’m gonna assume each slap is for free LOL.

The note also mentions that because this is a popular event then cut back on you Avatar impact, there is actually going to be a security orb which I assume will just send you the message to cut your impact if you exceed the 50.000 limit.  This is for all the shops I believe and not just Mina’s.  This isn’t going to be an issue for most of us, even I barely scrape over the 30.00o but I do know that some hairs and Bento heads can cause an issue so ditch them and so everyone inc yourself can snag with minimum lag…Ooo I rhymed.

PS.Blimey I’ve been over to Mina’s twice and people are already TPing in believing the event has started but it hasn’t and if you check out the “Monthly Midnight Madness Blog” you will be able to see exactly when it does….BEST OF LUCK.

PPS I’m gonna say it again through, check out the Gacha’s in Mina’s shop.  One day I will have to show you some of them so you can see someof the great hair for a bargain price I go on about.

Yea or Nay? (Freebies n Dollarbie).

I actually picked up the rudie sex doll from Muschi’s Marketplace shop first.  The doll, you get a blonde and a brunette version, only cost a Linden and it’s worth a that for a giggle alone.  I was tempted to sneak a copy under Faith’s bed or in her and PD’s closet but I’ve done that before and she’s wise to my sneakiness (that time it was a Dead Nun if I remember correctly).

Anyhow the Doll was just a bit of silliness but there was a couple of Freebie that I rather liked, a wearable bubble of gum, some fun handbags etc So when I came in-world I decided to pop into the in-world shop just to see what else was there and I spotted a few more freebies, as well as the MP ones, inc this outfit.

This dress comes in only standard mesh fits but I could fit it over my Mesh bod OK enough, however, the other dress only comes in 2 fits which would fit probably if I had bothered but I was feeling too lazy and so I will leave it up to you to give it a go.

The dresses aren’t to my taste but each style has something which might just appeal to you.  This dress has a bit of a nip slip going on and in some stands a “Hoo Ha” slip as well LOL.  The other dress is the one which is styled to give you the bigger more curvaceous boobs with nips detailings.

So go get and try them on as you do get a choice of colour/tex and they might just be what you’re after.

PS In-World freebies are on the posters hanging from the ceiling in the entrance, easy to find.
