Update.(New Mina Group Gift & Freebie).

The first thing I did when I logged inworld was to swop out the S@bbia skirt for my fav jeans to see if the really good top I’ve just blogged can be worn with them and it’s a really lovely fit. Then I went over to Mina’s as I knew there is a New Group Gift out for us.

“Annie” is one of her newer/older hairs. You do get only the “essentials” colour pack which is a decent size and although I’ve forgotten to count how many I would estimate maybe 18ish?…anyhow you get all the shades you really need from black, brown, blondes and whites. You do also get the style hud which allows you to change the fringe and the bun at the back.

As always though there is a demo even for the group gift so you can check out how it looks on you.

The Mina group does cost, I think, 200Lds to join. It may have gone up by now and even if it has then this hair on it’s own it worth every linden and of course you have a wall of older gifts. If you’re after some bloodied hair for spookiness then there are some on the group gift wall as well.

You also get a 10% off when/if you treat yourself to a new hair. Just make sure to wear your group tag.

It’s the Cherry on the top. (50Ld !g0 Group Gift).

Finally! !g0 has a new Group Gift out for us and it’s CUTE!

The texture on this summer dress is crisp and bright, those folds are perfect and look closely and you can see the detailing on the hem and the scrunched up underbust area.

When I say “Finally” I don’t mean it in a negative way as this is a shop which does put out new gift on average every month and even if you do seem to have to wait a bit longer because as we all know sometimes life gets in the way of SL when it’s something so well designed and unique it’s worth any wait.

This dress comes in the usual Mesh bodies, I grabbed and ran without seeing if there was a demo for you  to try but if you need to I’m sure you will find one.  Often there is another perk for group members and that is one of the new items has a colour which has been reduced to half price for group members only.  Again I grabbed and ran so fast I’ve not check that out but I deffo will when I log back in to get the LM.

Almost but not quite.(New 10Ld Belle Epoque Group Gift).

I’ve just deleted all the info on the 30Ld Sat offer and the Saturday Sales offer because if you go over to Belle Epoque to pick these New Group Gifts up you’re going to see them for yourself.

These boots are not on the wall to your left where all the other gifts are, these are on the wall to your right where the offers are and that’s because these boots will match one of the offers….it will be clear once you go there.

Only one fit so I’m assuming that’s a Maitreya. I’ve deliberately left the breakthrough showing as I don’t think I’ll be able to get a pair of mesh jeans, I’m wearing Blueberry ones, to fit under the boots and this means you can see the fit on me and make your mind up.  Of course these could just as easily be worn with shorts, skirt or Omega layered pair of leggings.

PS.  You could, of course, check out the Belle shop as chances are these boots are available in different colours at full price but that way you can try a demo on for yourself AND remember there is a SALE going on and at 50% off even I treated myself to something.

PPS. If you’ve been sending me messages inworld, I thank you, but SL caps everything nowadays lol.  So if you have sent me a message and I’ve not responded pop it in a note.

Coffee Break. (5Ld Gift’s).

A quick log inworld, for as long as it takes me to drink my big mug of coffee, has scored me some fine freebies or at least I hope they are as I’ve not unpacked them yet as a notice came out from Kaithleens for their latest Group Gift and I didn’t wait.

Heck yes!

Put quite simply, lots of fits, my fav colour, can be worn separately and is Kaithleen’s quality it doesn’t get better except it DOES because you get this day wear outfit and a sexy and yet still classy sheer romper and not forgetting that the older Group Gifts are still out for us.  Win, win and win again and only for a joining fee of 5Lds.

PS.  I’m such a numpty.  I know that there is a newer download for Firestorm but I would have sworn the one I had which was the last bar one download and was Baked on Mesh ready but it turns out it’s not lol.  So I’ve not been able to try it out as yet and TBH I’m now not sure I will bother as it’s not something you need and for me it’s not going to add too much to my SL life.

PPS.  I did mention that in the Free Marketplace Gift of a FULL BENTO MESH BODY post, thanks again to Dateless for the heads up, that there is a Hud which allows you to creep on the AV’s around you if you want to know what it is they’re wearing, I’ve used it a couple of times and spotted that it’s even better in that it not only shows you what they’re wearing BUT also gives you the LM to the shops they came from!  So I’m popping the link to that post as you may not be interested in the body but damn that’s a handy hud.

PPS. I will have to wait to show you the other freebies I scored as I’ve finished my coffee and my cats are busily reminding me I’ve forgotten to feed them…send help if I don’t post later!

Sack me! (Freebie).

Just as I had binned my last “nope” freebie and I was about to start some serious SL home decorating I spotted a bright light but unfortunately I must have binned my Mojo with all the other stuff and I just took some really bad piccies so in the end my trusty pose cube came in handy.

Let me just say it’s the top only! but these great pants and shoes are old gifts which are now long gone but it just goes to show that you can find some absolutely great stuff to wear even if you don’t have the Lindens to spare however if I did have Lindens to spare Blueberry is one of the shops I would just go APESH*TE and buy buy buy. Just really good stuff with such attention to fit and details and not even unreasonably priced I’m just poor even in SL I’m a pauper LOL.

So here is a close-up of the top.

I’m pulling these odd poses because I’m trying to show off the lacing which is on the sides.  As usual even with the Freebie you get a great colour Hud choice for both the top and laces 13 colour options.

The only wrinkles I like are the ones which make your clothes look so real.  You can’t really see it in any of my pictures but you can even see fine seams which again add to the realism of this outfit.  The only downside, sorta, is that it’s mesh body only BUT still try it even if you don’t have a mesh bod because you might just have the Alpha you need to be able to wear this.

I don’t think the LM takes you direct to the Group Gift so when you land walk forward a little bit and this gift is in the shop to your left.  I’m not sure if the other older GG’s are still out if they are then they’re probably going to be in the main shop straight ahead of you and if you haven’t gotten them yet make sure you do.  This top for me is a “keeper” which basically means that no matter how bloated my invent is I’m not trashing this.

PS and yes yet again PumeC, sorry I don’t mean to be a pain in an AV’s ass about it but thanks to Faith spotting it on the floor next to the reception desk is a small pile of gift boxes and in them is a small selection of old PumeC Group Gifts, if she hadn’t spotted them I wouldn’t have even seen them.  The reason PumeC is so busy is that on either side of the New Group Gift, which is I believe an Albino skin so most unique, is 2 Lucky Boards.  Sadly though it means that a lot of people are loitering and it’s creating a bit of lag but then again next time I’m sorting out my notes you might just find me stood there waiting for my initial to pop up.
