No no NOT the dress!(Freebie).

Sorry, although I would be so happy to be able to bring you such a glorious dress as a freebie this one is definitely a paid for one.

xxxdressuse

So I was spending a few mins in my home rezzing some more decor items out because you can never have too much clutter in your life, and I came across some items from Aisling and since they are so good I decided to do a quick TP and check out if they’re still there and they are.  Home decor items, low prim and high quality, a mix of things ie rug with cute rat poking it’s head out, some lamps and the items I was rezzing are some extremely realistic houseplants which at only 1 prim and many shades I will be placing everywhere.  There is even a lucky tub and I won a rotten apple…err not lucky tub for me then.

The one freebie I grabbed because I still have the others tucked away is this stunningly beautiful headdress of big fat Spring Roses.

As always I rezzed a copy of this on the ground to prim count and Holy Carp only 1 prim! So not only a stunning wearable but an equally stunning decor item.

I would have loved to show you them all but yet as always a rush in RL means I’ve had so little time and it’s such a shame as the other gifts set out are so good so make sure to check them out for yourself.

Anyhow, I’m taking a work day and SL day off tomorrow, although since New Year’s day I’ve stuck to my healthy(ish) diet plan tomorrow is my last blow out before I stick more rigidly to my diet because DAMNIT I want to be back into my skinnies!

PS if you’re interested then the dress is from Junbug.

Sundays perfect days for quickies (freebie).

The sun is out (and in and out and in again) so I’m heading off to my garden with my new sun hat and my latest book but I since it’s been a few days since my last Freebie and I have a Freebie Addiction that needs to be fed check out this quick post.

rose

A very simple sweet rose textured mesh dress.  Comes in all the standard sizing and Fitmesh which is the one I’m wearing.  This comes from FA Creations and although I grabbed and ran as soon as I saw this I do remember from previous visits/blog posts that this is one of the shops where a lot of the items come with colour changing Huds as standard and since most items are reasonably priced in the first place it means you get much more for your Lindens. As it happens this dress does come 2 colour options this old-fashioned rose one and a blue and white chintz pattern.

OK the sun is out and so am I, have a great day and I’ll see you all  later.

Follow me. (Be Quick).

I swear if a SL or RL man, or woman of course, went to all of this bother to stage a romantic evening he would score BIG with me!

OK my first reaction with the new Follow Us Valentines range was OMG so light and white so I packed it all back up and had a ponder and then it struck me…go with the flow.  So I dug out one of my brightest skyboxes and accentuated the purity even more.

softfrost2

The bed and candles are all mine but if you love the whole look just ask and I’ll be more than happy to let you know where they came from.  The table is of course pure Follow Us.  Gold cutlery, rosé wine and a big menu choice.  A waiting setting of a simple napkin, 6 main meals ranging from steak to Sushi, 2 cheese plate options and of course 5 sweet deserts options to choose from.

softfrost4

The oversized heart-shaped ottoman comes with 2 sets of poses, single and of course couples and rezzabables.  I did have a laugh as one of the single poses was checking your phone and just like RL I’d be a bit narked if my loved one checked his or her phone LOL.  Plenty of couple poses which although I’m a singleton and couldn’t check 100% they did look pretty good and I loved the rezzable Champagne bucket.

Make sure to check out the Follow Us Marketplace shop there is a whole load of goodies starting at only 1Ld and that inc some lovely Valentine pressies.  If you’re a Group Member, and it’s only 40Lds to join and there are oodles of Group Gifts waiting to be grabbed, make sure to wear your tag and you get a massive 20% off your Valentines purchases.  This discount doesn’t inc the mainshop or anything from the Valentines shop thats under 20Lds.  As usual Laurent has popped all of the smoochy stuff into a romantic house and not the Mainshop so when you land inworld just turn to your right and it’s there.  If you’ve not joined the Group as yet then go into the mainshop and turn right and then the GG joiner and all the gifts are in the very dark room…easy to see what I mean when you’re there in person.

I’m not going to show you all I’ve gotten from Follow Us in this post as I’ve got some seriously cute and smaller gifts to share with you.  So all of that comes in the next post but here is a quick bit of freeness if you’re after an outfit for the big day.

I had a little laugh with this one because it really looks like I’m the broken-hearted girl on the other side of the door wanting to get in and be wined and dined.

The dress, shoes and pose are freebies.  I saw the dress in Cocoro Lemons shop’s Coco Designs a while ago but this is the perfect time to wear it.  You will have to join the group but thats free and of course there is a whole line of really exc quality GG’s waiting to be grabbed. Then I went over to lindy Modern and Retro Shoe shop to find the “Add some red hunt 2” item and I failed,I did however find a blue crystal which is part of another hunt and it turned out to be the blood-red and NON SLink shoes I’m wearing.  If you have better luck than me and find both shoes then the “Red” hunt item looks like it’s a pair of SLink shoes so there is a pair of shoes for everyone.

The pose if a freebie from EMMEPOSES it even includes the hammer. Now I’m here LM grabbing I’ve spotted some more freebies on the desk inc a couple of sweet Valentine ones amongst them.

DOH time is running out, one of the things I love about Follow Us is that he caters for the SL men as well as SL women.  Laurent has put out this special offer for all lovers of Coffee, a coffee maker reduced from it’s normal price of 129Lds to 69Lds.  Sadly this was only for a limited time but since it and the other colours you can chose from are still there you still have plenty of time to snag this as a gift and best of all you can send it direct to your loved one, or treat yourself to a model, and as always Laurent delivers his goodies in a well packaged box so people will know they’re being treated.

This is how you do it.

Burst3This is how you romance someone in SL and of course RL.  A simple laid out tray with chocolates, yummy pudding, Champers etc etc.

Burst4And if you do it right you might get this, if you peer through the mesh you can just about see me NAKED!!!  The lovely draped rose petals are a feature of a lot of his new Valentine range.

However if you really want to blow someones mind then check this out.

I WANT I WANT I WANT and not only in SLbut it in RL.  Sadly I allowed my ass to get lazy last year and my bike to get rusty and OMG yes I’ve been drooling over an almost exact bike in RL  and when I’ve dropped a few more kilo’s (don’t laugh Faith) I’m going to reward myself with one of these for the summer.  Stunning and surprisingly low prim  at 13prims.  This has a lovely gift bag on the handlebars but there are a couple of other choices and the one with the basket of roses is freaking awesome.

Burst7

This is me in the summer once the 5:2 Diet has worked (I can so recommend it if you want to give it a go).  Boo Hoo only couple poses so us SL singletons will just have to use our own poses but I’m parking this baby outside my SL home as an incentive to keep to my diet and working away on my boring exercise bike.

As it happens Laurent must be a real softie as he seems to have packed all his Valentines items with some lovely and romantic poses, nothing smutty or crude but sweet cuddles and kisses.

Burst9But let us not forget Valentines is not just for the girls because  boys like to be treated too.

GGS

Sneaks this one in as a reminder of why when you find a good group you stick to it, Laurent83 Waco has a whole wall of his GG out and each week, month etc he sets out seriously discounted items and special offers for group members.

A few of my fav things.

I already have this same dress but in another gorgeous texture and I loved it so much that when Pure put this rose patterned one out I snagged it up.  What makes it extra special is hidden behind me but since I can’t find the photo in my media folder then if you check out my Flickr link what you see is the big fat juicy bow at the back.  With deep folds and rich colouring  these are just so divine and the icing on the cake is that this is Pure’s 60Lds weekend offer so grab it quick.

Absinth

And then I realised that in this photo is some of the items I really lovely in SL.  The Absinth set and table comes from Post. At this rate both Faith and I will own everything Post puts out. This comes from Van Auster’s profile “European, Historical, Japanese, Mid-Century Modern, Art Deco, Bohemian, Churches, Venetian Palazzo,Distressed Buildings, Curios, Antiques, Found Objects, Ennui, Ex-pat” and all I can say is you have to visit to get to see the real quality in his builds. Then there is the rich and elegant Mesh long gloves.  200Lds for a single colour or 400Ld for a fat pack and they’re just such a fantastic look they really finish off an outfit.  dress

Yeah for me as I had lost this photo and I so wanted you to see the bow from behind and I’ve managed to recover it and reload it and it’s so worth it.

Just a note about updating your SL Viewer. I finally bit the bullet and uninstalled Firefox and updated to the newer version and fingers crossed so far so good. I’ll pop a couple of Links below to help you if like me you have been avoiding the inevitable.

Lady Of The Lake

fairy11Once again I found myself wandering around Boudoir and yet again I couldn’t decide on which amazing outfit to buy.  Precious Restless is a RL designer and artist and you can tell that from her SL clothes.  They’re stunningly textured, creatively designed, feminine and FUN outfits.  This dress is called “Narcissus Lake Dress”  the underskirt moves and flows just like water I’m not sure what that texturing is called where the actual pattern moves but it’s so pretty and so effective.  Then a top layer of lily pads and then just to make it stand out even more, around you floats/flies adorable fishes and flying insects. If your unsure of the quality of her clothing then at a 100Lds this is more than reasonably priced so you can buy n try and know that if you go for one of her more pricier outfits you can be assured of the quality.

Art Framed useDoesn’t this photo look like a work of art and yet it’s  a close up of the skirt so you can get some idea of how “watery” the underskirt is. You can see just a couple of the fish and one of the dragonflies but all in all there is about a dozen swimming and flying around you.  This is more obvious in the first photo.

Boudoir is a big shop packed with temptation.  Hair, shoes, costumes and a small selection of furnishings. Outside is an equally small but ethereal selection of plants inc the most gorgeous over sized Dandelions.  Don’t ignore the greenhouse esp if your a Petite because she has a select selection of her clothes for those petites who love to stun.  Lovely to see she has the accessories so even if your on the small size you can still recreate the look and for those who love their Lola’s then a small selection of her clothes have been adapted for the boobalicious.

As I’ve said Precious Restless is  a RL designer and artist and she has brought her amazing designs into  SL with her but if you check out my links you can see RL women wearing her clothes and how stunning they look.  Because SL is only limited by your imagination she has allowed herself to go OTT with the flowers, flounces, butterflies and frills making you stand out from the crowd.

Ah Bliss.

I’ve been waiting for this sale for ages.  I love hats RL, SL any life and especially when they’re on special offer.  Bliss Couture has been up and running now for an impressive 5 years and as a Thank You last week they started an upto 60%  discount sale on their clothes.  they have everything from bridal gowns to cocktail dresses which also  seem to be all non mesh.  It’s what I call High Fashion which means big skirts lots of froth and real statement clothes.  I’ve not got any of her outfits but from the pictures they look so dramatic and beautifully texture, very romantic and womanly.  What I was waiting for was the hat and hair sale.

BlissBudget busting at 99Lds each and I know from my pre sale visits that they are vastly reduced.  Each hat comes with a variety of colours which sadly only come in the fat packs. It was hard to chose which colours as they’re all so pretty.

Bliss1From big and frothy to close caps of dense flowers.  Because you cannot get demos you will just have to take my word they’re just gorgeous, or simply buy  one hat and try it on and once  you’re convinced of the quality you can shop with confidence.

Bliss 2In case your wondering that is an Etchaflesh cleavage busting corset.  Not sure why hats and corsets go together so well but they do.

Bliss 3 All photos were taken with the Nams Prim and Skin setting (touche eclait for SL) and no photo shopping of any sort because I want to show off the beauty of them.

Bliss threeA nice and appreciated touch is putting your hat on doesn’t mean you lose your hair which I find a minor annoyance.

Bliss 4Last photo I promise but honestly I still have about 5 more which I love and adore but haven’t shown you and I’ve not even started on the hair.  The hair is very much like the clothes, big and bold.  I treated myself to one shaped into a teddy bear face …honestly it’s CUTE.

The LM should take you to the large hair and hat department but you will also find downstairs a small selection of seasonal hats and I just had to have the one with all the cute stuffed bunnies.
