Minimal cost – Group gifts

I buy SO many backdrops, seriously – I think its the new “gacha” for me – I just cant stop. Minimal are my absolute favourites though – well made, in proportion and really on trend. So I headed over there today to check out if anything caught my eye – and it did ! The two backdrops on the lower part of the photo above are group gifts – plenty other gifts to grab also and all the store quality that Minimal sell. There is a small join fee of $50L which is tiny in comparison to the fact you can fill your boots with stuff as group gifts PLUS you get 10% discount when  buying and wearing your group tag – nice! I bought the two backdrops on the upper part of the photo and ohmydays – they are lush! I know I’m actually going to be using these for the winter ❤

La Vie en Pose – Free gifts!

Great event on called La Vie en Pose – if you love your poses and props this is the place for you ! Each stand also has a free gift for you – just join the La Vie en Pose VIP group (no fee to pay) and click away. Fashiowl – as always – were very generous and have this fantastico car as their gift – heaps of poses and a real gem.

CEBO have this retro hair salon as their gift – a pose for the customer and a pose for the stylist built in – I think Id use it as a backdrop – really lovely ! It was SO difficult sticking to my measly budget – first time I’ve been a bit sad about not being able to buy anything boohoo!!

Backdrops $0L – 1$ L

I have lost count of the 1) The amount of cash I have spent on back drops 2) Where they are in my inventory 3) How many I actually own!

So with that in mind I decided to take a gander on the market place to see what I could find without spending a ton of dosh. After about 10 mins I had collected the above for the grand sum of $2L ! The red carpet by Perfect shapes is pretty well-known but still worth grabbing as its dead useful @ $0L. The dandelion and wooden floor by [SouthSide] is handy too and just $1L. I know I’ve bought the garage backdrop before – and couldn’t find it ! It’s by Yumi Chiuh and is $1L, such a great one to get as you can dress it up with vehicles or make a grungy street scene for your photos. Saintstreet have this blue room with light cubes, all linked and dead pretty for $0L, and my current fave is the plain room by the same store, so easy to scatter a few pieces of furniture, add drapes etc too and again $0L.

A proper Yorkshire welcome.(Freebies).

Before I sit down to unpack I want to reblog my outfit and give you a tour of “Yorkshire”.

The top, pants and although you can’t really see the flat sandals are all separate freebies from Loordes of London and you should find them where the LM takes you. Nearby you will also find all the special offer items, “Steals ‘n’ Deals” 30Ld Tue offers etc and that’s a great place to pick up not just a bargain but Colleen Macarthur also hides all the hunt items in that area so it’s a “piece of p*ss” to find them.  Most if not all come with a tiny price tag and I don’t think there is a new hunt prize to show you but I’ve never been disappointed with the prizes.

I can’t remember how I ended up in “Yorkshire” but since I was here and I was looking good I decided to snap away.

Actually, this isn’t a sim it’s a platform in the sky but I’m still going to call it a sim.

It’s just lush and as a Northern Lass, I know Yorkshire pretty well and even honeymooned in a cottage set in the middle of some stunning landscapes.

All of these pictures were taken in the sim setting and as always I totally encourage you to go and have a try at taking your own pictures.  If you remember the trick is to “save to disk” so that any pictures you take in SL are saved directly to your computer and costs you nothing so you can click away till you get the picture you like.

Now I remembered how I ended up in “Yorkshire” it’s because I was visiting the PinkRayne shop and because “PinkRayne” is also the creator of this sim she has a TP board from her shop to the Yorkshire platform and other locations such a Petit Chat.  Also if you do go to Yorkshire you not only get the LM sent to you but also a very interesting note on the evolution of this sim and the love and attention that’s gone into it.

PS. The Loordes LM does take you to the wall with the free shoes/top and you will find the pants on the little table there.

The struggle is real.

As yet no freebies but I want you to go here and then…..

…there.

I was LM hopping and came across a very interesting building and discovered it comes from a shop called No Signal so I TPed over and yup there it is but sadly it’s a Gacha Rare win and 2 attempts later I have a drinks dispenser and a pile of comics and no building.

No Signal shares the same sim as a shop called Vibes and although neither of these shops has a gift for us, damned meanies, they do have some really nice and interesting items. I was almost tempted…then I remembered my Gacha “wins” lol.

I also want to show you the sim these 2 shop share.  The shops themselves are on 2 separate heart-shaped islands, you just walk across the water to get from one to another but the windlight and landscaping of them just make for a great photo opportunity.  I just pointed and clicked and so again even if you don’t think you I assure you can take beautiful pictures here. Plus you may also cave into temptation and treat yourself.

Stay Focused! (25Lds GG’s).

I’m trying my hardest to remain focused on the job in hand, landscaping our sim, but damn I’m so easily distracted esp when it’s a backdrop BUT don’t stop reading because there is a lot more than the backdrop/photo room I’m showing you in the Kraftwork shop.

How zingy is that yellow!

Just another view, because this is a backdrop rather than a room it means the 4th wall is missing so you get more camming space.  You also get a hud with 3 shades in it and the third is a superb dark blue.  Obviously not something everyone needs for their SLing but there are now a lot of, decor only, gifts at the LM for the Kraftwork shop inc this cutie.

It’s a little brum brum loaded with cacti and succulents.  A decor item only, I will say that at I think 14 prims maybe a bit primmy but you can’t deny it’s cuteness.

As I’ve said there is actually a few decor items, I remember showing you the concrete picnic table and chair set but since then there is a lot more set out for group members and I’m pretty sure than for your 25Lds joining fee you will find quite a few things for your home and garden.

PS There is also another skybox as a GG which is deffo a livable in one or maybe better as a shop.

Panic over!(My Kindle is working & I have a Freebie).

Sorry about my MIA, Faith and I are rather proud that we manage to get posts done on a regular basis but sometimes RL SUCKS, or we’re away on holiday lol.  Anyhow, I had planned on being in-world all day snagging and grabbing stuff like a toddler in a sweet shop only to find I was trapped in RL.

But I did have to log in because D.U.S.T has a new freebie out for us and I won’t bore you but reg readers will know of my love of D.U.S.T.

It’s a pose/prop room.  Because this is a Freebie you only get the 1 texture, I have the paid for copy and it doesn’t come with this texture so I was so pleased to have this industrial/steampunk/futuristic backdrop and in fact, I will be using it again pretty soon.

This is a very dark room but either with in-world windlight, lights or one of the many free photo editing sites you can brighten it up etc.

This, of course, is probably not much used to anyone other than those who love to take pictures in-world but there are other GG’s for you to check out and the D.U.S.T shop even though it’s a photographer delight also seems to be bringing in more and more wearable accessories and one of them is a gift as well.

As for my Kindle anyone who owns one will know that sinking feeling when it’s not working but unlike our health and lives a reboot sorted that out.

So I will see ya’s tomorrow and I’m already hunting down some wearables.
