Super busy doing nothing.(Lucky Board Win & GG’s).

Normally when I mention Lucky Boards it’s usually just in passing when blogging other items but I was super lucky and as soon as I walked into AMD (Apple May Design) my Lucky initial was on the board so I quickly paid the 25Ld group joining fee and SNAGGED!

Sorry, it’s just the bathing suit everything else I already had but it was a great opportunity to wear one of my gray PumeC skins and that kinky hat/hair.  Sadly there are only 2 LB’s and I don’t know how slow or quick the change is but this silver and the other board has a gold version was worth a wait.  However, there are other GG’s so for the 25Ld joining fee’s you can grab them and then if you have time to kill then you can loiter and see if your initial come up plus it’s also a good time to work through any notices, notes etc.  Also, it’s been a while since I was in the AMG group but previously they would send a notice out about a special item set out for a discounted price, 25Lds, for group members only and I still have a few of those pieces.  So not sure if that still happens but check the notices out if you do join.

A small word of caution though.  The GG’s come in a mix of sizes and whut! not SLink but with my new updated SLink Hud and the options given I did find fits that emm fitted LOL and the Lucky Board win does come in all the mesh bod fits inc SLink.

PS I am busy because I’m stood in this frozen pose on my platform and rezzing and deleting the contents of my invent.  If you look closely you may even see a few beads of sweat on my forehead.

Works of Art.(Freebie n Dollarbie).

As soon as I get an update note from Loordes of London I always read it because I love the clothes and shoes and often they’re on at special events and even more importantly at special prices.  As it happens the lady who owns Loorde’s has a RL sister who owns Storax Tree and her shop is packed with home and garden items and like her Sis, she too has a lot of offers/discounts etc on offer which leads me to this painting.

The reason I had to get this is because when I set up my new home (Hardwick House)  I need big and bold art work so this with its illuminating light just hits the spot, geddit? LOL.  The painting and light are linked and still come to just 2 prims.

This is the size it rezzes at but I spotted that there is a resizer script so I’m gonna guess you can make it bigger or smaller depending on the size of your home.  Although this is a “Hunt” prize you don’t actually have to hunt for it as the LM takes you to a room where all the events and hunts that are going on are on the wall for you to see, so just find the poster for the “Masters of Style” hunt and buy it for a single Ld.

For those who want something a bit more modern then you might just have spotted the star shaped light at the top of the picture.

This is a new gift from a shop called Goose but this is the SL frees & offers(sic) free group gift.  A simple 1 prim star wall light, or just have it floating around your home and sim.

There is a lovely GG set out for the Goose group members and that’s only 50Lds to join so check that out.  I only scanned the note that was sent out but the long and short of it is that the person who owns Goose has been busy in RL but is now back and getting Goose back up to speed.  Goose is yet another Home and Garden shop packed with delightful stuff for your SL home.

Sorry, I am a bit vague with shop/designers names in this post but time is short.

I can still look!(Freebie)

Pillows from “Pillow’s” which is the name of this furniture shop. Which leads me on to this simple little set of pillows which is a gift.

It’s the 3 patterned ones in the foreground and for once I didn’t see if I could unlink them LOL.  Just a lovely simple pretty giftie.

Pillows is a shop full of dreamy, drapey, girly bedroom and home decor items and again another shop where you can’t find the same things in any other shop as they’re unique.

Pillows

I wish I hadn’t!(Freebie).

I finally caved in and updated my windows 10 and as always it means my computer is acting like a stroppy teenager! So when I went over to a shop I’ve scored some damned fine GG’s from in the past the fact that the shelves were almost completely bare didn’t surprise me.

Is it me or is it the shop I don’t know.

However, happily for me this was the one and only thing I found in the shop and it’s just as good as all the other GG’s I’ve had previously from this shop.

Free to join and you can see from the sign behind me you get a lot of sizes plus as seems to be standard with her designs you get a normal and a bright version.  Not a lot of difference, I’m wearing the normal version, the “bright” is simply had a bit more Pop in colour.

SLink Updated.

The one good update I have had is I finally popped over to the SLink shop and had not just my flat feet but also the updated SLink Mesh body redelivered and I’m glad that worked.  Because I’m constantly changing clothes, skins, make-up and on and on it gradually screws up my mesh bits but thankfully like a lot of sensible shops at SLink you can just click the redelivery board and it opens a link to the website and you simply click the item you want to be redelivered.  In this case, it turned out to be even better because although Siddean Munro updated her SLink Hud not too long ago it’s been updated yet again and damn now has even more, smaller finer Alpha Layers! so now I’m wandering how many of the outfits I binned which were other mesh body fits but not mine I could now make fit with this finer detailed hud!  But this is a good reminder for us all to keep an eye out for updates.

If you too don’t find anything in the !Soul shop I’ll put the link to her Marketplace one.

I have “yumyum” hair.(freebies n cheapy).

I finally did it and left some of my groups to free up some space and I also decided to check out some of my paid to join groups to see if there are any new GG’s out for me and scored for both the Free and the Paid For groups.

First a vanity shot as I have 2 left feet in RL so in SL I love nothing better to see my AV dance.

OK, first the not so free but at 50Lds to join the !gO group for this dress it’s worth it.

I am really bad at visiting all the groups/shops which I have a paid for membership to grab any new GG’s and so goodness knows how many I’ve missed from the !gO shop but this simple shift dress is gorgeous and as always with the !gO gifts it’s shop quality.

To me !gO is the “Joe Brown” type of clothing, google it, and I love that style.  Unique clothing you will not find anywhere else in SL and even better this stuff doesn’t age because as it gets older it just becomes classic !gO pieces.

I’m not a 100% sure as it has been that long but sometimes a new design is set out and one of the colours is reduced for group members as well.  Anyhow if you have 50Lds to spare then this is a group/shop to join.  To find the Group gift walk straight ahead in the entrance in front of you and it’s to the left above a reception table BUT also where you land is a signpost and you can TP from there to the Discount section and just a quick glance around was enough for me to see a LOT of super stuff at really good bargains and I also spotted that they come with demos so I can guarantee you WILL end up grabbing a load of them to try before you buy.

Freebies now.  (Barbery) Yum Yum is a shop I’ve actually bought hair from as it’s super cute, young, unique etc all the things I love.  There are 2 free hairs both short and cute, the other one I’ve already blogged but a long time ago and so I’m just showing you this one and you can surprise yourself with the other one when you go to the shop.

You only get the 1 shade. if my memory serves me right the other freebie has a choice of 3 light shades but I could be wrong.  The hud also has a simple slider so if you put it on don’t freak if it’s too small or big as you simply slide the slider till it fits.  Yup I got tempted as in the reception area is the hairs which are available at events and there is an adorable wind blown one so I had to TP over to that event and bam it’s mine now.  Thats why I don’t visit some shops as I always get tempted lol.

A nice little extra in the shop Yum Yum shop is some nice cool wearable drinks and spoons.

Even though they come with pretty good holding poses you know me and of course I had to rezz them and they make seriously good decor items and even with all the detailing they’re still just 1 prim.

PS The shop is called Yum yum and the group invite is next to the gifts in the entrance but the group name is “Double Paradox” just in case you get confused as to why you’re getting sent a group invite for a different name.

GO GO GO GO GO!(Hunt/Freebies).

This is a 2 parter post and a collab cos Faith is actually going to tell you about the rentals on this sim and I am going to show you just 1 of the super hunt items set out.

Faboo, a shop that specialises in beach wear, has a really BIG hunt going on at the mo.  If I remember correctly 30 items for us girls and 10 for the boys and what you’re looking for is a little pile of sand with a chest on it.  Not only are these easy to spot you do actually get a list packed with the clues as to where to find them and it’s EASY PEASY so don’t let the idea of it being a “hunt” put you off.

They do have an ulterior motive in that they want you to walk around the whole sim to not only score some really nice items but to see ALL of the rentals but that’s the last thing I will say about them because I called Faith over to check this place out and she too was rocked by what she saw, so see her next post for more details about that.

Although I’m just showing you the 1 item out of the 4 I’ve found so far each one of them is a winner.  You get a mix of sizes and fits, some come with Huds and all seem to be wearable straight away so you don’t even need to unpack and unbelievably they’re actually TRANSFERABLE, obviously non-copy as well! How nice so that means if you find something that isn’t to your taste you can pass it on. Spread the joy I say lol.

I’m heading right back now to LM grab for you and then grab as many of the hunt items as I can for myself and what I won’t/can’t use I will pop into my “noob” folder to pass on as I’m pretty sure anyone old or new would be happy to receive these and I’m popping some into my keepers folder as well.

PS You do have to join the Free Faboo group and grab the list from the LM.

Dirty little stopper upperer!(Freebies).

Yes, I actually logged into SL at about 2AM just to see if I could grab the last remaining items from the Apple Fall sale and now I’m done.  Today is the last day so I will assume that you have some time to get in and grab and remember everything is priced between 25-75Ld and that inc the buildings(and my new home when I get around to it).

Then, since I am an SL addict, I popped over to the Hashtag event and it’s its Birthday and we all know what that means…CAKE AND JELLY!  Sadly no but lots and lots of FREEBIES.

I only grabbed about a quarter of what was there before I gave up and TPed home and started to unpack and of course started to bin away.  As usual, a lot of the small things but that’s not a bad thing at all.  I’m just not a tattoo or jewelry wearer so more often than not I bin it without unpacking it.  I like to just grab a load of stuff from a place to get the sense of the goodies and yes there are goodies to be found.

But as soon as I unpacked this bucket of flowers it was the “money shot”.

A Beeee a cute little Beee LOL.  Non-edit but copyable.  The only reason I would edit this is I would take copies of those gorgeous flowers and scatter them around my garden but as a stand alone potted plant this is just excellent.  I will do a quick log in to find the name of the stall/shop I found this one on at the Hashtag event so you can just go and grab this but as I said there are oodles of gifts on the stands and there is nothing nicer than grabbing a whole load of stuff and then plonking yourself down and working through them and finding the pieces which make fab additions to your inven

UPDATE. I think the bucket of flowers is off the “Dreamland Design” stall which is not a name I’m familiar with so woo hoo thats a mainshop for me to check out later.  If I’m wrong about the stall just GRAB ALL of the gifts and have fun finding it.

Then I decided to quickly check the Dreamland MP shop and found even more quality Freebies.

They turned out to be just as good as I had hoped but since SL time was running out I’ve just slapped 2 of the 3 freebies down and quickly took a snap.  I saw some window boxes in the MP shop but since these come with a price tag, cheap at 50Lds though, I will when I log back into SL pop over to the inworld shop to check them and the whole shop out.

This is why sometimes a quality freebie works as it gives people a taste of what you have and they might just come over and spend Lindens in your shop.
