New Pool @ The Outlet $88L

Galland Homes Pool complete $88L !

I’ve been looking around for a new pool for a while – well ever since we got our first ray of sun in England. I’m a big fan of The Outlet @ Seraphim and usually pick up hair or clothing – but to my surprise I found a pool! If you haven’t been to The Outlet before (why not!) its a cool place to pick up a few bargains as they have SO many discounted items from top designers. Galland Homes are the makers of this fine pool, its just 33Li and will set you back only $88 of your Linden dollars – it sits so well in my garden I’m dead chuffed ! The little pool house is part of the package btw – I’ve placed a vintage bath inside but it would equally showcase a nice shower or patio table & chairs. You do need some basic land editing skills , i.e.: drop some land lower to accommodate the pool water – but it was dead simple to do.

Oops. (10Ld Marketplace Promo’s).

I can’t sleep so I’m SLing like an addict which has paid off as I found some interesting things on the marketplace.

Ignore what I’m wearing as in this case it’s just the backdrops.

You can’t really see it in this picture but you do get steam panels to create a steamy look which you can see that in the next photo.

You can also see that this isn’t a full build as it was just made for photos although you could edit it to fit your own landscaping..maybe.

This next one got me all excited as I love pools and then I rezzed it.

Nope, I’ve not changed into gigantess. Turns out that this is really small.

I ain’t mad as it did make me laugh and then I’ve just reread the details and I suspect that it can actually be made bigger. I will check that out tomorrow and do an update if it is possible. It is of course perfect for those who live a “tiny” life, fairy’s etc

Last but not least these school uniform dummies. Pretty impressive and would make a great backdrop for a shop or a home sewing room/dressing room as they’re only 1 prim.

Each item only costs 10Lds and yeah I enjoyed unpacking them but it’s time for me to turn my computer off and go to bed…nighty night.

PS. I have a free outfit for tomorrow.

Just a small treat and a small freebie…sorta.

As you can see from the title this isn’t really a freebie post as such but the blouse I’m wearing is another gift from the Vagrant shop, the wearable lolly and basket are a subscriber’s gift from the BTW shop (Bee’s The Way) and as for the hair ignore that as even I don’t know where/when it’s for sale but you know it’s a Mina and you also know that as soon as I find out I will let you know.

I really just wanted to show you a new shop which has really tickled my fancy.

I’d gone over to the Cosmopolitan event and spotted a very interesting decor and a fun drivable from a shop called “The Dove and Pear” shop and I’d never heard of this shop before.

OH Lord what such great fun designs. Very D-Lab but NOT D-Lab! These designs are just as unique as we are. I spent way too long just wandering around and zooming in and out just looking at all the detailing that has been put into these fun things. I keep my SL home quite realistic looking but I swear if I was to live a Kawaii life that caravan or the Steampunk Retreat House and since the prims are actually pretty reasonable I could live in both lol.

I also loved the drivables esp the Dreamers car and yet again so reasonably primmed I think it can be rezzed so that would be parked outside.

I’m not really doing the things much justice in my photos so I’ve put a link to not only their inworld but marketplace shop (I think there is more in the MP shop than the inworld) and also their FLickr page so you can see their pictues.

Pssst…keep it. (30Ld for 300Ld Gift Card).

I will say that even if I could pass this gift card on I’d be keeping it for myself. Noveny is a home and garden shop and I’m pretty sure I’ve been eyeing up a couple of items in the past so now I can treat myself to them.

The group does cost, only 30Lds, and there are some group gifts which I’ve previously shown to you and I do believe there is also a new group gift. Since this one also has a time limit I’m heading back now to make sure I get to use it.

PS. Just in case you missed it this is a non-trans gift card.

Watch the Birdie. (Freebie).

One of the shops on the 30Ld linden list is called the OYI (Only Your Imagination) shop and it didn’t strike a bell with me so I went over to check it out and this is where I found this lovely group gift.

So pretty and not unreasonable at just 5 prims and that includes the little Robin on the table as well (linked). You seemed to get 2 versions and I believe it’s a quiet one and one where the bird sings, that’s something I will have to check out later.

I did have a quick look around the OYI shop as it’s not too big so I could see there is a mix of things from some scars, clothes and builds but it was at the LM where I spotted a fab item which sadly because the vendor was offline so I couldn’t buy it. Since I really want it I’ve dropped the seller a note and hopefully, they will kick the vendor and so I can return to purchase it later.

UPDATE: Looks like the thing I wanted to buy is next weeks 25Ld Tue item….I will be back on Tue to get it.

Starting off the wrong way.

NOT free I just want to show off my recent purchase as I’m so happy with it.

I ended up at the Access Event and just before I was about to leave I spotted this bridge and this bridge is just what I’ve been after for a LONG time!

Since this is a Nutmeg design it did come with a price tag which actually I thought was more than reasonable at 350Lds. It was also a nice bonus that you also have a small hud of wood colours which inc this snow one and how well does this blend in! Also, you get pose options as well however I am surprised that the pack does include flat pieces you don’t get the steps as a separate build. So I had to drag my work platform closer. I will have to check that out as I did find this beauty late and didn’t check to see if I could edit the steps off and make it longer.

And that’s it for now. I’m drinking my second cup of coffee, I’ve made my RL “to-do” list for later and I will be logging in pretty soon now for a freebie hunt.

Calling all Magpies. (Freebie, Bargains & Lots of Temptation).

It’s now my regular routine as I’m slurping my second cup of coffee to check the weekend sales that Faith regularly posts on and I will say this weekend I have a shopping list as there are some tempting quality bargains to be had.

It is also how I ended up at the Fantasy Illumination/Fantasy China shop. Here is the subscriber’s gift which I will say is OK. A simple balloon with twinkly string, low prim etc and yeah you can see I’m not overly excited by it.

What has got me excited is all of the super pretty twinkly decor items, both for the garden and home for sale in this shop.

Although there is a whole area of special offers such as 35Ld Sunday Sale, 30Ld Sat Sale, Energy Weekend Sale etc I just had to check out the whole shop as I am a bit like a Magpie in that I love sparkly things and this shop is full of sparkly things.

I did manage to reign myself in as I’m not planning on changing the sim to a wintery look till the start of December and although the decor in this shop isn’t just for winter/Christmas etc I can see a few of the decor items places in and around my home as a feature when I do change from Autumn to Winter so I will be picking up one of the weekend offers, the Sunday one which isn’t set for sale yet, and then I will when our sim has been coated in snow return for some feature sparkles.

As for the gift, it’s a subscribers gift and you will find it under the curved staircase.

PS. I think this is part of the Fantasy China shop.
