Time to Partayyyyy.(Freebie).

Good Morning Monday, don’t panic as this is a short n sweet post as my RL “to-do” list is longer than my arm and I have really long arms!

I’m celebrating my new photo cube/box/studio/scene which did cost me but I am doing it in a lovely Freebie which is this metallic gold dress.  You do have a silver option in the pack and all the mesh bod fits etc . You will have to join the “mesh body friends” group but that is free to join.

It’s a KISS.(Freebie).

I did some more old LM TPing yesterday and I’ve always wondered what purpose “abandoned land” has and why Linden Labs leaves these undeveloped sims around and then I stop wasting brain cells cos God knows I can’t afford to loose too many.

So one of the places I TPed into is or rather was is an old shop called Paradisis, which is you have been in SL for as long as I have you will know was a shop that was a fashion leader in SL but this is a brand new and completely different sort of shop so basically not Paradisis lol.

OK yes, I know a classic style dress that you’re probably had and binned a few already but it’s pretty darned well textured and simple Summer outfit so well worth checking it out even if you think you wouldn’t like it.

However, this is also a post for stuff I’m not showing you and that’s KNICKERS!  OK, It’s actually full lingerie sets of bra’s, panties etc BUT not for mesh heads like me.  These are all old stock from the old Paradisis shop and don’t even come with Appliers just system layers.  I don’t know how these undies and the other non-mesh freebies have stood up to the test of time but if they have and you don’t like or use a mesh bod then you can’t go wrong and try these freebies out for yourself.  I know that a couple of the gifts are actual items I owned before my Mesh Bod addiction!

The TP takes you to a small shopping platform with little shops on and one of them is where you will find the freebies I’ve mentioned but there is quite a few in there inc a VERY rude beach towel which is actually really nice and has some very nice poses in it as well as the RUDE ones LOL.

PS Don’t look at the hair, OK you can if you want to but this is a New Mina and isn’t available till the Hair Fair opens so I will let you know more about it them but isn’t it simple, sweet and understated?

Glam Queen.(10Ld Stunner).

Back to work, which means I’ve put proper clothes on and some slap on my face and yet I will never look as glam as this.

Hot damn this gift called Dorada comes from the LRS shop and is STUNNING in the depth of the folds, unique styling and although I’ve fiddled with the picture the red is bold and lush.

Although this is in the LRS shop it’s a Teleporthub Group Gift which costs a measly 10Lds to join.  There is a whole wall of other Gifts for which you have to join the LRS group to snag and from what I can remember they seemed to more undies than clothes.  In the entrance is a wall of Lucky Boards but to find this and the other GG’s then they’re on the wall behind the reception desk or rather on the back of the wall behind the reception desk…easy to find and you will understand what I mean when you GO GET IT!

PS All standard mesh sizes.

Flasher(Freebies).

Damn n drat I swear I’m going to turn off my notices/notes so I can finally settle down on my platform and bin stuff.  I’ve not even had the chance to sort my skewed house out but I am weak in the face of temptation.  So I TPed over to another Gacha event with a massive amount of freebies but thats for the next post because this dress is only FREE for the next 24 hours.

xxxboobuse

I had to fight my way through all the lag caused by all the Cheap B*s grabbing not just this but a whole wall of Group Gifts, yes of course I grabbed them all as well but because this one outfit has a time limit on it as soon as I got home I threw it on and I’ll save the rest for later so again lots of lovely surprises for you.

PS Colour Hud inc and all the mesh bod sizes plus I heard the noise of Lucky Chairs/Board

PPS I’m just grabbing the LM from the notecard that comes with it to save time and this is on the card and I personally think it’s worth copy n pasting it here.

Who are you?
You are beautiful.
You are smart.
You are funny.
You are kind.
You are Unique.
You deserve to receive love and affection.
You are never to much but you are always enough.
You are precious.
You are a diamond , a rose ,a pearl, the most amazing of God’s creations.
You deserve more then you can ever imagined.
More valuable then all the hair style products that you are using .more then the shoes you are wearing,more then all your clothes.
Your value is higher then all the earthly,because in God’s eyes you are loved and Unique.
Doesn’t matter who you think you are , a model in a magazine,if people want to copy you or try the change you,if you are a cheerleader or you didn’t finished your school,if you are Miss Popularity or if you you never had someone who you call friend,if you love yourself and your life or if you can’t stand yourself in the mirror and feel that everything in your life went down,if you are a winner or if you consider yourself the biggest failure ,no matter who you think you are the truth is that you deserve someone who will die for you.Because you are strong,full of strength and capable.
Read about the Woman in the Bible…Ester,Ruth,Martha.Those women changed the world for ever.
And in everyone and each of you there is a woman with the same strength,same power and same capacity to change the world.
This is you!!
And if any whisper in your mind trying to tell you something else,tell them :No.No.No.

I can do this!(Freebie).

I am fortunate in that I have a whole craft room to myself, ok the smallest box bedroom/closet lol and I paint, stamp, knit, crochet, sew etc and I do it very very BADLY! Anyone who looks at one of my creations and praises it is a friggin liar but OMG for some freaky reason I can actually embroider! Lots of things in my home have a little bit of embroidery on it but for repairing or upcycling old clothes it’s really invaluable in tarting something up and of course pretty unique. However my lack of skills in other artistic endeavours  doesn’t stop me from slapping paint onto paper or making family and friends suffer from home made cards that look like they’ve been made by an uninspired/bored 7-year-old because the one thing I always say I may be bad at it but I love it and find it very relaxing plus in life you have to keep on trying things until one day you will find that thing you’re good at.

All of that spam for a simple embroidered dress LOL.

This dress actually cost me a Linden because I was mooching in the Marketplace but I know you can get it from the main shop inworld for Free, just join the Insomnia group and grab.

A Christmas Miracle (Freebies and LOTS of SPAM).

Yes, I’ve managed to download a newer version of Firestorm but….I’ll leave that until the end so you can choose just to check out the Freebie first and read all my ranty spam at the end if you wish to.

xxxsnowuse1

Seriously pretty special effects on the picture editing sadly, not Winlight.  The reason I’ve not concentrated on the dress is because at the FLG shop there are oodles of different outfits for different groups, don’t worry the group invites are right under each picture and some of the gifts are copies, don’t worry you will see what I mean when you get there.  This is a simple dress with those deep folds but what you can’t see is the 21 colour Hud, 21 colours for the dress and 21 for the bow.  Simple and pretty.

Now for the ranty spam, but it is pretty informative so read on….

So I’m back with Firestorm.woo hoo,  but this newer version is slightly different from the one I was using and actually more like the official Linden Lab one but I can already spot some of the Firestorm settings which I personally like and need so it might take me a little time to work out the kinks to have my viewer customised to my preference but at least I have a smile on my face.

Last night the whole Firestorm download site was unavailable and that’s because everyone was trying to get the latest download to get BENTO and I don’t mean the charming packed lunches of Japan but the next level in mesh bod bits.  Until now I’ve not been a big fan of mesh heads because I just don’t seem to be able to work with them, I either look like an alien freak or a stoned barbie and neither is a good look but Bento allows you to use the “avatar appearance sliders” to completely customise your bento head till you have something that you can relate to.  Woo hoo but hold on because just as when Mesh first hit the grid and people walked around wearing “doughnuts” to see Bento you have to have a Bento compatible viewer.  I know Bento has been in Beta testing for a while but if it’s now available with Firestorm then it will definitely be used in the Linden Lab viewer but of course, you will need to have the most up to date viewer.

Sadly though for us CBs(Cheap B*tches) this new development comes with a hefty price tag, we have to remember a lot of time, effort and brain cells are used in bringing to us these amazing things which make our SL lives prettier and of course some people are trying to earn an income from SL and good for them, I wish I could lol. Also, it will take a time for the skin makers to make skins which are Bento compatible but it’s happening and happening fast.

Since I am a CB I will wait a while for the heads to either come down in price or I save up my pennies BUT for me personally I’m so excited about the Bento HANDS! which also seem to be much more affordable.  The ones I’ve seen on youtube come with huds which allow you to move you hands in so many ways and you can link the hand movements to your AV’s AO (if you understand that then you’re a nerd like me) and as you walk and talk your Bento hands move in perfect unison and as someone who takes a lot of piccies to be able to choose so many hand poses makes me HUMMMMM.

OK, I could be wrong on so many levels, but I’ve got the general gist of Bento right, but go check youtube as there are lots of videos showing you the latest big thing to hit the grid.
