I swear I’m not superstitious butttttt (Cheapies & Freebies).

Blimey for me personally Friday the 13th has certainly lived up to it’s rep and I wasn’t going to do a post but then I read a notice from Mina Nakamura and it was a case of “YESSS” something has finally gone right.

OK, First of all, I am wearing a super bargain cropped sweater which only cost 10Lds or in my case 20Lds as I forgot I already have it and in fact wear it a lot! I picked it up from the MP(Marketplace) as the MUTE shop isn’t inworld anymore.  Although I’ve had this particular top now for years it’s still a fine and wearable basic jumper with a colour Hud of 8 options.

As it happens everything in the Mute MP shop is only 10Lds and I can guarantee that it is great quality.  If I remember correctly the owner of Mute was shutting up shop and she decided to go out with bang and reduced everything to 10Lds and people went “cray cray” grabbing as much as they could but then she, Jayzee Netizen decided she would keep her shop open but the prices would stay the same.  There was a bit of a backstory to it which I am not too sure on but the long as short of it was a lot of people could buy some really affordable wearables.  The inworld shop got closed down years ago but the stuff is now all up in the MP.  If in doubt just buy the one item to check the quality but I bet you will log back in for more.

There is a reason I’m in Mina’s and it’s not because I’m wearing a Mina’s hair, I’m nearly ALWAYS wearing a Mina hair LOL it’s because of a notice that was put out.  Took me a while to muddle through it because my brain has had enough of “Adulting” today so I decided to cut & paste and you can read it for yourself.

“Last Chance Vendors” will go live on Sunday at 12:00 am SLT and will give you the last chance to pick up the gifts for a very discounted price of 50 LS.  MINA V.I.P. members receive 50% DISCOUNT on the “Last Chance Vendors” when wearing the MINA V.I.P. group tag
The amount of gifts is not limited, but the vendors will be live for 24 hours only. After that period the exclusive colors will not be available again.

So… if you missed out on a midnight gift you really wanted, be sure to drop by at the store by midnight SLT when the Last Chance Vendors go live!
Some creators offer an optional add-on color-hud for a discounted price. Keep your eyes out for those!”

So basically you have just 24 hours to slap a board on Sat and then hit the other one on Sunday and since there doesn’t seem to be anything about having to join a group I’m gonna assume each slap is for free LOL.

The note also mentions that because this is a popular event then cut back on you Avatar impact, there is actually going to be a security orb which I assume will just send you the message to cut your impact if you exceed the 50.000 limit.  This is for all the shops I believe and not just Mina’s.  This isn’t going to be an issue for most of us, even I barely scrape over the 30.00o but I do know that some hairs and Bento heads can cause an issue so ditch them and so everyone inc yourself can snag with minimum lag…Ooo I rhymed.

PS.Blimey I’ve been over to Mina’s twice and people are already TPing in believing the event has started but it hasn’t and if you check out the “Monthly Midnight Madness Blog” you will be able to see exactly when it does….BEST OF LUCK.

PPS I’m gonna say it again through, check out the Gacha’s in Mina’s shop.  One day I will have to show you some of them so you can see someof the great hair for a bargain price I go on about.

Its Delicious & Fifty Linden Friiiiiday!

Ohmergawd Great morning so far, lickable sweater from Neve @ TLC this round, it’s named “delicious” and it absolutely is. You can alter the frilly bits on the neck,cuffs & bottom edge – colours and on/off – love that! Choice of plains,patterns etc – it’s a total winner for moi! I also zoooomed through the Fifty Linden Friday list and scooped up some gorgeous hair from Clawtooth “Tiny Lion”, I snapped up the essentials pack which has pretty much something for everyone. I also dashed over and got the awesome shoes from Reign “Hocus”, you actually get a black pair and a white pair for your 50 bucks – steal!

As promised a FREEBIE.

I have a feeling that in some windlight settings these shoes will be positively luminous but I changed my settings to my normal Optimum skin n prim setting for the pictures.

These come from MH Unique Designs and there are 2 other gifts but I’ve completely forgotten what they were as my eyes were drawn to these.

Look at that cheap nasty plastic texture and sheen! It cost a lot of money to get a texture like that, these shoes remind me of the 80ties fashion and bargain-priced shoe shops which sold plastic shoes meant to look like leather. I’m not actually being derogatory about the texturing I think it’s really good and I think you can see that with the blue shoes.  You get an 8 colour Hud option and SLink, Maitreya and Belleza fits.

Don’t give in.(Super bargains so read the blurb).

Just as I was about the throw the towel in and give up looking for “that” ooo freebie/gift etc I put on an old pair of Ricielli shoes and YES!

Ricielli always has one of those paid for (non) hunts, so basically there is a big board and on it is what is in each hunt item and for a piddling 15Lds you can buy yourself shoes, dresses, tops, pants etc

The hunt which is going on in the main shop is actually still the Valentines one, TBH I was expecting it to have changed to a Halloween themes one but more about that later.   The TEMPTATION is so bad as there so much and I know from all the stuff I’ve got in the past its bloddy good stuff but honestly, I could just go Bat Sh*t crazy and buy the lot but this time I just bought the top LOL.  This top comes in 2 colours this dark greay and a pink one.  The shoes I am wearing but obviously, you can’t see are old “hunt” items and then there are these pants.

The one thing a lot of people may miss about the Ricielli shop is that there is a secret shop STUFFED with ALL of the old hunt items.  In fact, there are old Halloween items there as well.  Some of them are pretty old now but it’s hard to know which are old and which are the newer stock because the Ricielli stuff just doesn’t seem to age.  I picked up these leather pants from the old hunt section and for 15Lds and I thought they came in a limited 3 colour palette but in fact, you get a really good colour hud option with the ability to change the belt and hoops as well as the main body of the pants.

The top and pants come in so many mesh fits honestly you will have no problem finding the one for you or of course if you’re a non-mesh person then you will easily find an alpha to suit.  I also think when you click on the item before you buy it tells you whats in it so you can check for yourself.

PS. I couldn’t help it plus I think “Bridget” the hair I am wearing goes great with this outfit but Bridget is one of the Mina Gacha hairs that I adore.  It only costs 100Lds a try and although obviously, the colour palette you win is a risk you don’t just get 1 shade you get a whole colour palette of that shade.  Again you can try the Demo out first and if you like Bridget but don’t want to risk the colours then check out Faith and I don’t mean Faithless Babii lol.  Faith is another Mina with that curly, hippy chic look to it.

Ricielli (Follow the signpost keep the black wall to your right and then when you get to the end it’s the shop there.)

Kawaii Stompers.(Freebie).

Another quickie, you lucky people lol.

I picked these up from a shop called Momento.  Not my usual or preferred style of shoes but they deffo have a “Kawaii” vibe about them and are such good quality and I do occasionally pick up Kawaii outfits so handy to keep.

If you look on the front of the reception desk you will see a picture not of these but of a mix of items and this is what you click on once you’ve joined the free group.  These shoes came with the label of “Gacha” so I did go back and click on the picture a couple of times to see if I scored anything else as I do know another shop that used to give out the Group Gifts as Gacha wins but I just won another 2 pairs of these so I’m guessing that this isn’t the case for this shop.

PS This shop is on it’s own little island and there is a lovely beach out front if you want somewhere to linger.

SaNaRae FREEBIES.

I had just had way too much fun unpacking and sorting through all of the gifties from the SaNaRae Birthday Event.

A really good mix of stuff, some shoes, clothes, lots of jewelry, decor etc and I’m pretty sure that everyone will find something that will make them go “ooo”.  In this picture I’m wearing one of the hairs, I do believe there is another hair as well, this one is pretty damned good and you get some lovely colours in the Hud.  The pie is to chuck at people who you both love and hate.  Go into Mouse mode aim and let loose and it’s silly fun.

I thought this cake was the freebie but couldn’t understand why it had writing above it and then realised it’s because the cake is the delivery box for this adorable AV, YES I am BUTT NAKED in this picture with no pixelation to cover my bits.  I’m pretty sure you get this “beige” piggie and a “pink” piggie plus little shorts to put on if you’re really embarrassed.

There are 3 reasons why I’m just showing you my backside, the first is so you can get a view of the large loose bun, this hair does come with a menu and I did have to make it pretty large to cover my scalp and I think it would look better not so big and so I will shrink it back down and either wear a head Alpha or a tattoo hair base.  The 2nd reason is the bum! Blimey, it’s like 2 watermelons in a sack!  The same can be said for the boobs as well. I actually really love clothes that have the exaggerated “Lady lumps” because sometimes it is nice to have killer curves.  Although this dress comes in a lot of fits but not my SLink one this one was a perfect fit.  The 3rd and last reason that this is a behind shot is that I broke my eyes! I took my little piggie AV off and pulled myself back together but as I was taking pictures of this dress it dawned on me that something was seriously wrong with my eyes, they were bulging out of my head so I just took this “bum” shot and then logged off but don’t worry because as I had expected when I logged back in my eyes were back in my head.

This is only a fraction of the gifts and a really nice and interesting selection but also check out the items for sale.  As I said I bought this build plus a few other things as it’s just nice seeing new stuff.

Tee Hee!(Freebies).

Since I haven’t got much to do today I logged back in and as promised started to look through the notices from that new, to me, freebie group from my last post and yes looks like there is a lot of interesting stuff and that’s how I ended wearing a gas mask with a squid on my head.

The first place I visited is a shop called Violetility which didn’t ring a bell to me and neither did the shop but as I was wandering around I spotted a few items I had seen from some of the regular events in SL and possibly from blogs or notices but this is the first time I’ve been in this shop for sure and I would deffo have remembered it.

Although a lot of the furniture in this shop has a BDSM edge to it DO NOT let that put you off.  Of course, a lot of the furniture has a choice of Adult or PG but also a lot of really new designs that you won’t find elsewhere.  Very interesting stuff that will have people clicking on it to see where it’s from. There was a couple of pieces and a build that had me almost buying but I breathed deeply and TPed home to take these pictures.

This chair is a set of 4 in different shades and conditions ie worn, tatty.

This is one of the other chairs.  Thank goodness for pixelation otherwise I’d have my wrist slapped! Yes that is what you think it is and yes that does come with a menu just like the chair and the taco float I picked up.  I have to say that the poses in the furniture, and that thing, aren’t too bad.  I actually used one of the sitting poses in the chair f0r my picture.

When you go to the Violetility shop there is a big table with Birthday cake n stuff, ignore it and turn to your right and you will find a wall of silly stuff and the occasional bit of “That’s OK” and these Halloween shoes are deffo OK.  Only 2 fits, SLink and I believe Maitreya.

As I’ve said you really should go inside as there is something for everything, from furniture to eyes, kinky to sweet and if you don’t then you will miss out something that might make you go “ooooo” (just like the Pixelated picture) lol.

UPDATE

As I’m LM grabbing I’ve checked and the notice board next to the Birthday table says that in celebration of its 4th year there is a 50% sale which is refunded on purchases ARGH I’m so tempted now but I quickly logged out of SL and then maybe I will go back and just check out the items I’m interested in and see how much they are now I know they’re half priced. I also have a feeling that the VIP group is only going to be free for the duration of this sale but I could be wrong.
