Somewhere to call home (inc a Freebie).

OK first the freebie before I start to wax lyrical about a lovely new hangout place I’ve found.

XXXRoseshoes

Pure Poison again, I only did a post about them last week but since they now have a New GG out I thought why not.  The GG’s are in the Gacha Machine in the entrance, do not make a mistake and pay lindens for the Gacha Machine next to it but don’t worry they’re clearly marked as to which is the Group Gacha and which isn’t.  Remember though the amazing people at Pure Poison have ALL of the old GG Gacha’s in the courtyard in the middle of the shop, easy to find and lots of shoes of different styles to be found.  Make sure to check out the full priced stock and maybe spend some Lindens, we all love a bargain but shop owners also have tier fees/Linden Lab Fee’s etc that need to be paid and sometimes there may even be a few Lindens left over from those expenses which they can use for themselves.

Once I’d grabbed the shoes I decided to check out an old LM and that shop has now gone and has been replaced with this lovely, beautiful and inviting Cafe.

XXXRoseue

I did play with the piccie but the Windlight setting has already been set to create a soft and relaxing atmosphere.

XXXRose2

Lots of seating area’s and the roof is decorated with comfy sofas, tables etc and from there you have a brilliant view of the whole sim which  from my first glance is purely a residential sim but the homes are few and far between.  When I log back inworld I will be having a good mooch around to see what other “posing” potential this place has but because I’m a good girl I won’t be going into anyones home, but I will be checking to see if this is a rental sim or not.

XXXRose4

You don’t have to walk far from the cafe to find lovely private places, this little area is just down some steps from the cafe.

A perfect place for practising your photography it’s been so beautifully laid out and the windlight setting is so nice that anyone can zoom, click and create a piece of art.

PS the tree’s are meant to look like that lol they’re dead tree’s and not poor rendering.

Be QUICK off the mark (10Ld sale).

Aww my poor Boo Boo is off work because he’s poorly, that’s the cute side the reality is he’s a snotting, hacking, smelly lump who has finally took his sorry ass up for a nap so I’ve escaped inworld and I’m so glad I did.  A notice came through one of my groups about a 10Ld sale going on so I and everybody else it seemed TPed straight over and it was packed with bargain hunters.

XXXBubbleuse

One of the reasons it was so busy is because this 10Ld sale is only on for 2 days so better be quick. I have to say I was a bit lost at first as the shop I was in everything was full priced but then I spotted that on the other side of the LM is the second shop and this is where everything has been slashed down to just 10Lds and since time is limited I simply cammed and snagged the first 2 items which grabbed my attention and also a Dollarbie for Omega Undies, TP home unpacked then TP to one of my fav SL places and took a couple of snaps.

This is a simple design but the detailing on the lace make it really lovely and stand out from the rest add to that the colour changing Hud which gives you 4 colour options for the jumper.  The other item I picked up was a basic short slightly flared skirt which although I’ve not taken a picture of I can assure you I’m 100% happy with and again only 10Lds and this too comes with a colour/tex changing Hud with 4 options.  An excellent basic invent item and OK I did also spot that there is a range of Group Gifts out for certain SL groups so I’m going to be checking them out as well.

When I log back inworld I’m going back to see what else I can snag as I love a great bargained quality item.

PS Turns out the reason for the confusion is that one shop is called DM and the other is CD and the bargains are in the CD (Chrystal Drops) shop.  There isn’t a lot in there but I still found another skirt pack and 2 bodysuits with Omega Appliers so I’m very pleased and can’t wait to unpack them later.

Teasing & Testing & a Freebie.

When I’m running out of time or I want to show you a close up without clutter to distract what I want to show you I rezz my trusty pose cube but SL borked it! So when I was deciding how to show you this simple but pretty bikini set I’d picked up I thought I’d dust it off and see if SL still wanted to keep it borked but it’s working again Woo Hoo.

Anyhow I thought I would show you this simple freebies from Pink Pearl Design which is definitely a little bit more as you get not only a colour changing Hud but also Tattoo layers and Appliers for Omega & Slink & Lola’s so not so little in the end.

XXXtest

Also remember if you see anything that I or Faith uses in our pictures such as a decor items, skin, hairs etc which isn’t actually described in the post please feel free to drop us a NOTE (IMs get capped) I know that both of us have received notes off people asking and we’re more than happy to let you know.

PS The skin is a Pink Fuel one which apart from PumeC is the only skin I’d pay Lindens for because check out those abs! and the hair shock horror isn’t a Mina but in fact comes from Analog dog which I must visit to see whatssup because it’s been a long time since I was over there LOL.

Got Boobs? (Freebie).

Be kind to me I have a double whammy of a cold and toothache! RL is sucking badly at the moment.

I’ve been tottering around in SL with this very night clubbing, date night, stylised outfit from Braham Design or the past 2 days but I’ve only had the nounce to finally be able to show it to you today.

XXXCinieuse

OK I did have fun with editing but this outfit didn’t need it.  Obviously the main body of this mesh dress is a matt black and that exaggerated red fold is very dramatic, you can also see that even the lining of the dress is the bright red which is a nice finishing touch but not as nice as the bows on the back.

XXXCinni

I don’t do nightclubs, dancing or dating in SL but I do know of people who love to take their AV dancing and do a bit of inworld flirting as well and this dramatically coloured dress will get you noticed for sure.

OK a maybe a bit of a downside.  Boobies, this dress comes with a very generous boobie cup size so even though I’m wearing the XS size my little pimple sized boobies don’t fill the cups BUT I do keep my boobie slider in the pretty small setting.  Although I love to wear my Tangoes on the whole I keep my boobies petite but if you’re the sort of girl or even boy who loves a pneumatic cleavage then perfect for you or of course with a simple slide you could make yourself a busty AV.

Going to be honest my brain is moosh so I can’t really remember much about the Braham shop so I can’t tell you much about it but once I’ve got my sh*t together, in other words the pain killers I’ve taken have kicked in, I’m going to have a wander around.

DOH I’ve just realised, red n black perfect Valentines outfit! So grab it now as it may not be there next month and hide it away till the big day (all rhyming is completely unintentional)

UPDATE, This Freebie/GG is on the wall just outside of the entrance to the shop and I highly recommend you GO INSIDE!  I’ve just spent a very pleasant half an hour trying on quite a few demos as there is some really lovely items here, even the simple knitted off the shoulder dress impressed me with the crispness of the texture but there seems to be a bit of everything from casual summer to cold wintry wear and it’s the same with the pricing.  Lots of things are just 55Lds but even at the higher prices of 99-150+LDs if I had a unlimied budget I would have bought at least 2 things and thats only what I spotted on the ground floor and there is even more upstairs and I believe across the way is the mens dept as well.  I did also notice with the demos I picked up they came with not just the standard mesh sizing but also mesh body sizes and fitmesh so this is definately a place to check out properly.

Guilty (Freeness)

It’s those DAMNED GACHAS!!! but when they contain something as cute as this wearable Elephant I think most of use would also find it hard to resist, I even look guilty in this picture.  However the Elephant isn’t free and in fact I’m not even going to tell you where I got it from, unless you really want to know and then you can drop me a note inworld and I’ll tell you, sadly little Nellie flashes, she’s not very stable so is constantly disappearing not sure if this is an issue just with my comp or something that needs to be fixed by the maker.  Such a shame as it’s a much more interesting wearable than the standard hand bag LOL.

XXXGuilty

The freeness is not just the outfit but the great boots.  They don’t match but neither do they clash and since they both came from the same shop called Agapee I thought I’d show you them at the same time. The dress and gloves come as a one piece and you also get the Mesh Body Sizes as well.  Although the boots come with mesh feet fits you can obviously wear them even without mesh feet.  I should have taken a picture to show you the beige chunky heel which is a really good style touch.

Often when I grab a Freebie I just rush off to try it on and only when I’ve decided it’s worthy LOL and I’m at the LM grabbing stage do I return to the shop and from this visit I can see that Agapee has only been open since december and already has 2 stylish shops set up but not totally packed with stock as yet but plenty of room for expansion.  To one side of the Landing spot is the clothes shop which is where you will find not just these 2 freebies but there is also a pack of the same outfit but with 3 more Christmassy texturing and if you go to the other side which is the pose shop there are also group gifts out there but sadly for us singletons they’re all couple poses.  Of course I couldn’t resist hopping on a few poses and although I was seriously tempted I managed to not buy any but I think when it’s time to update some of my poses this is going to be a place to visit.

PS I almost forgot to say that if you don’t like this outfit as a one piece I did spot that you can buy the skirt and tops but they come with a price tag and it’s the same for the boots.  If you like the style but not the texture and don’t mind spending Lindens then there is a choice of them as well.

DOH!

Only 2 piccies but a lot of info.

I popped over to Mina’s to find out a bit more about a new event to me called MIX, but more about that at the end.  As I was there I noticed that she had changed her sim and there is a lovely misty tree-lined avenue so I had a pleasant time pulling poses and taking pictures only to find out this morning that my computer has filed them away somewhere I can’t find them! So I did a quick couple of poses and the reason for the quickness is not the Mina hair, that will be on special offer all month,but the top I’m wearing.

mina

I picked this top up from JLZ Fashion and it’s their Thursdays 55Ld offer.  Be careful not to buy the one from the full display as you will pay the full price, to get this one when you enter the shop go towards the right and on the wall at the bottom of the stairs is this discounted top.

Because we’re “dolls” when we show you a hair or a piece of clothing we chose everything else to fit to create a whole look and as you can see because of the Mina hair with that broad hair band and the top with its pastel flowers and string tie they all lend themselves to a Hippy style and so I chose this colour palette for my hair and make up.   So basically if you don’t like the colours I’ve chosen for this look this particular hair “Jacky” is not only on special offer of half price, 125ld, but you can choose from the whole colour range.  So you can choose blonde, brunette, reds, pastels and on and on and EVEN the extra specials such as the black.grey/whites and of course each pack comes with a selection of shades in that pack.  Mina often has special offers out but to have one where you can choose which ever colour you want is a bonus.  Also remember that although it’s not important in this style a LOT of Mina’s hairs come with the Bust sizing options which even if you’re not a big boobed girl still comes in very handy or making sure your hair lies on top of your clothing.

mina2

Just a close up  to show you the hair, skin, top etc and the jewelry.  As it happens I had managed to get over to the Flawless Sim and ran around the stalls grabbing the Lolly pops and I’d just unpacked these green gems so if you have some time to kill then I’d recommend you pop over and check out that sim for the Hot Summer Hunt & Cart Sale.

As for the MIX looks like some of the BIGGEST names in SL are in this and each shop is offering you a discounted items and to make it super easy you can either join the Mix group to get the Hud or grab the Hud off the Marketplace and I’m going to guess you wear the Hud and then TP to all of the shops taking place in this event and that’s exactly what I’m going to do once I get back inworld.

Chunkies. (Freebie).

chunkies

Very quick post as I literally stumbled upon something called Famous Station, a real quaint shopping mall set out as a train station with the small shops on the side of the platforms and on platform 1 you will find the Arisaris shop and 2 gifties.  A long summer dress and these non SLink but mesh boots.  With a built-in resizing menu all it took was 2 clicks to get a nice fit.  Good n chunky and free.  I did see another Freebie on one of the stalls but I just haven’t had the time to have much of a look-see and because I think it’s over in the next few days so I thought I’d get this posted and then go back to have a proper look.
