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.

Hats off to me (Freebie).

Sometimes I’m surprised that I’ve not subbed to a shop because as a blogger I’m always looking out for freebies/gifties etc and often we get news of these in messages through subscribed notices.  So basically when I slapped the NYC board not only wasn’t I already subbed but I also got sent not only this excellent Fedora but a total of 4 colour packs and each pack comes with a colour combo options.  So good, such a great fit, texturing etc I actually sent Baylen in to grab them.

He also popped over to the BRILLIANT Kowloon sim which both Faith and I know so well and have mentioned before but it never gets boring so here are a few pictures of Baylen pulling a moody look in Kowloon.

This is such a moody and atmospheric sim, the sounds of life going on around you and in particular a high pitched tone is very effective at making this place seem ..

The streets are densely packed together and to find the hidden treasures you need to walk down the dark alleys or up stairs.  Although there are shops here and marketplaces I cannot help but think that behind this whole sim is someone who has the generosity to fund a place which is mainly for people to wander and enjoy an experience that we could never try in RL (what a bloddy shame!)

orton6 As you can imagine most of the shops sell just plain weird and wacky stuff, I’ve actually bought a melting snowman AV in prep for Winter, but since 90% of the stuff you can buy here is just a few Lindens you can spend spend spend not  a lot of money and have a laugh doing it.  Plenty of hang out places and you can purchase food to sit and eat.

My biggest and only complaint about Kowloon is that people can rent homes there but sadly because of the language difference for non Chinese speakers it’s not advisable (their advice not mine) and the language barrier may cause difficulties.  Sometimes I think Sod that and I would just love to rent one of the rooms above a shop or something just to stand there and with the sounds of the city below you chill out.

PS when I went back to LM grab, you rezz just outside the main gates, there is a small cube with some gifties in it.  A hat and weird steampunkish eye glass and for those of you who don’t want to wander aimlessly but do want to check out the shopping spots there is a hud which shows you were they are…but don’t use it! The joy of this place is the wandering and the discovering.

Pussy Tails. (freebies).

Decided to pop over to RH Designs because although Ryo Ixxel hasn’t put out a notice in a while I thought there might be some new stuff or better still some new free stuff in his shop [[RH]] Design House and I did find new free stuff.  This rug with not only with the 2 cushions but also a cute kitty cats bottom and tail poking out as it digs under the rug only come to 2 prims!  Most surprised and pleased and it will be kept out now.  There are 2 rugs to choose from this but apart from the difference in texture it’s exactly the same with the cushions and kitty cat.

Although it’s always great to see new free stuff it’s also lovely to see old GGs left out esp when they’re such great quality.  So make sure to grab not only the table next to these rugs but also check outside the front of the shop to see a whole load of Decor Group Gifts make sure to grab those crates and click and sit as they have hidden poses in them.

I rummaged in my Flickr Account and found my old photos of a previous GG which is the desk.  Just like everything in his shop if you check out the back of the chair and the front of the drawers you will see details not usual with such low primed items.  All of his items have such a lovely little touch to them and at affordable prices.

Squeeze.

I remember a while ago drooling over a very shabby chic greenhouse/sun room which was a cobbled together collection of wood, textures, door etc and looked wonderful however the price tag and the prim count was not that attractive so when I found this low primmed low priced beauty I was so pleased.

At 31 prims, that includes the hanging basket/tool box you can just make out.  Comes set on a concrete slab.  As you can see the ceiling window opens but so does one of the windows on the side, love the sliding door.

inside

A sample of the tatty texturing. This is looking out the front door from inside….insideedew…and this is the other wall which as you can see is mainly windows.  A faux cupboard as well, not shown as I’ve lost that picture.  Even though the whole roof and almost one side of a wall and it also has 2 windows this still remains a cosy and private little hideaway.  I usually like to position myself in at least 1 picture so people can gauge the size but that’s the picutre I’ve lost but it is a decent size small enough for a tiny plot of land and big enough to take a whole load of comfy chairs, books and plants.  31 Prims and an even measlier price tag of only 75Lds!!!

The first LM should take you to her, Lindini2 Lane, shop and you have an excellent selection of beach houses, small mansions, shops etc all not only with great texturing but styling and also pricing I had actually bought myself 2 items from here but I’ve not had time to even rezz the shop I’ve bought but I’m so looking forward to seeing it when I do.

There is a LM board for the demo area but I’ve also added that LM as well so you can wander around and really see for yourself the quality.

Bless This House.

Bless this houseUseless completely useless that s what I am at the moment.  So many new hunts started and I found booger all but what I did win was a Lucky Chair  outfit of a bunny and a fairy haven’t tried on the bunny outfit but decided to float around a bit in my new fairy kit.  Comes from Deviance which is taking part in the Taste The Rainbow Summer Hunt and is one of the items I didn’t find (you’re looking for a rainbow coloured Sundae glass) but you may have better luck.   Once I’d put on my new wings, outfit (non mesh) shoes and wand I knew of a newly rezzed home which needed a bit of a fairy blessing so I blessed everything inc the fridge which I can’t show you a picture of mainly because it’s poses were naughty.  The skin is mine, it’s an old one from a defunked shop but it just goes to show you how you can make a great look look even greater with the right skin.

If your not tempted by the hunt or the shop itself then go for the view….

OutsideThis was taken with just the sim setting so what a veiw! It’s gorgeous and if you wander through the streets there are little shops of treasure hidden there.  I’ve not had time for a meander yet but when I’m back inworld I’m going back to see what else is there and just chill out for a while.

Have you ever?

A lot of people might not know it but Faith and PD had an in world and MP store which ran successfully for many many years.  Sadly over the past year or so this was pushed to the back burner but now the Creative Bug has bitten Faith on the ass and once again she is stood on her platform, rezzing, texturing, shaping and basically making a mess but out of this will come some seriously Super Kawaii items.  Then on my SL meanderings I came across this lovely new shopping area and what I was wondering is have YOU ever thought of setting up a shop or maybe starting small with a little stall. Lots of shops offer excellent Sculpties Full Perm Packs.  If your more Teccie minded then you may even want to try some Mesh.

ShoppingWe all know that sinking feeling when a shop rezzes and we can see instantly from the design of the shop and where it is that it’s going to contain TAT, not even cheap tat just tatty tat but on the other hand when we find a shopping area as lovely, well planned and landscaped like this then we know it is going to attract equally as good quality shops the  area and in fact it was the shop Olive which I came over to check out and that is most definitely a shop that doesn’t sell Tat.  So new that Rose Olive Doe (owner of Olive) hasn’t completely set up for business yet but I can see that this place will be filled soon with stalls and shops stuff with great stuff.

Shopping1So pop over check out the prices and prim allowance for the stalls and shops which are still available and you never know just like Marks & Spencer’s a small stall today a massive conglomerate.
