Yup, I’m gonna moan about the weather but you have to understand I’m English and it’s what we do. It’s hot and sticky and even in the middle of the night it’s hotter and stickier BUT on the good side it’s a Bank Holiday weekend and we managed to raid the supermarket and loaded our freezer with ice cubes, ice cream, lollies and frozen fruits to keep me cool.
I’ve snagged a couple of freebies perfect for an SL summer.
A nice quality off the shoulder “tropical” dress from a shop I don’t really remember ever visiting before called Seniha. Not an overly big shop so you won’t find it hard to spot a rack of tops which are very similar to the cross over style in SL but it’s strapless and thicker ties. At 99Lds I was pretty tempted but I just grabbed the demo to try on later.
Then since I couldn’t get a good shot of the shoes I was wearing by just zooming down, I TPed home to use my studio.
I know I did a post about these shoes from D&G not long ago but in celebration of 10 years in SL, D&G have released these shoes again with the added bonus of a Hud. In the top picture with my tropical dress I had all my green options on the Hud ticked but when I decided to TP back to my studio for the close up I decided to do a mix of colours. Really handy chunky shoes which will go with everything from jeans to a dress.
PS Super lazy and forgot the sizing for both dress and shoes but I’m pretty sure for both you get all mesh bod and feet sizes and possibly fitmesh/standard fit etc.
It’s simply too hot to “adult” so I’m not doing my usual Friday stuff and I’ve even canceled yoga! and once I’ve clicked “Publish” I’m off out into the garden but damn I wish it was the beach!
So I’m doing a quickie. A simple crossover top from Ben’s Beauty. A classic design in SL, as I say, comes with excellent texturing with the addition of a large hud of 31 and patterns to get you through summer.
Word of warning though as the LM takes you to the new stuff and ooo Tanya is a top that’s got me tempted to splash some SL cash. 100Lds for a fresh new design, with hud etc. However, I logged out before I caved into temptation.
To find this Freebie go into the main clothes shop and it with a couple of summer scarves are right there in the entrance.
It’s rare that I do makeup and nails even though I use make-up layers to change my appearance all the time, I struggle to take pictures, but I really liked these little extras and I don’t think the pictures are too bad.
The nails were sent to me I think as a Subscription and not a GG as it’s marked and since I’m not in the Livia group I will have slapped their sub board at some stage.
A very nice simple peachy set of nails which also work with SLink & other mesh hands, if you want these nails you might have to slap the sub board and see if they’re sent to you or you can buy them from the Marketplace shop for a measly 5Lds.
Or even better join the Free Livia group inworld and upstairs you will find some really nice group nails and also the lippy I’m wearing. This lipstick also comes in a few mesh head appliers and in my case tattoo layers. Sorry I was also wearing some teeth so you get the lippie but not with teeth showing. There is also a small selection of old hunt items on sale for 10Lds and I’m pretty sure once you’ve tried on the quality Group Gifts you’ll pick them up as well.
BTW the eyeshadow is one of the gifts from ULTRA, and I’m sorry I’ve forgotten which stall it came off but it just means you’re going to have to grab them all. I chose 2 colours to match the lippies but there are some really pretty summer colours as well. Not a massive amount but such nice quality.
As I was taking the pictures I was wearing an old gift from Blueberry which is just such an excellent basic I decided to pop over to Blueberry and check it was still out and it is but I also spotted this one below.
I’m now pretty certain this isn’t new but I’m still gonna (re)blog it because both this are the cropped top from the first picture are 100% quality, fit, textured basics that come with really big Huds so if they’re not new, to you, they will be new to someone.
Urgh part of me cringes slightly putting the “Freebie” into the title but you know what? We go on, life goes on, nothing changes apart from we become stronger.
So back to normality and in my case being a Cheap B*.
I made a “boo boo”. I did a post a short time ago about a New Mina called Shelly which is available at the Ultra & Kinky Event and I gave the LM to the Satelite Mina shop which is on the sim with this event but to get Shelly follow the new LM which will take you right to the building that contains not only the new hair BUT a FREE Mina! (as well as so many other gifts which of course I grabbed like mad).
This one is not just a new blonde but has been designed to fit over collars. This is why I deliberately chose this top because as you can see it’s pretty darn thick and bulky, normally I would stay clear of this style of top and yet apart from a minimum break through it fits amazingly well. You get 3 sizes but the sizes don’t change the head size just the size of the way the hair hangs down.
Actually just before I clicked “publish” I thought “wait a mo” because a lot of the long Mina hairs already come in different sizes but the difference is that they’re more “boob” sizes so basically you get “BB”,”SB” or “NB” sizes in any case and not many other hair designers offer this and neither do they offer the 2 meshes ie “Materials” and “Non Materials”. More about that at another time because RL is calling me. So lots of Freebies at Ultra inc this Mina.
PS. The top is one of the Group Gifts from Bijou from my last post but didn’t show you so check that post out as well.
My cat is yowling and my tummy grumbling which means it’s time to log off and get some food. So I decided to just TP over my fav beach and show you yet another SL Frees & Offers(sic) that I picked up whilst I’m trawling the shops on the Flawless sim.
The top and pants come from IM, sorry not the shoes. ALL mesh sizes etc.
PS This gift is on the wall just inside the front door but there is also a gift just in the entrance and you buy it for 0Lds, you don’t need to join the group which is a paid for one I don’t know if the other item has been set to buy for 0LD by mistake or deliberate but grab it while you can.
I started to unpack the “Adventures in Baby Sitting” Hunt gifts but mixed in is some of the GG’s I’d found on my way and as soon as I unpacked this SL Frees & Offers Gift from the Albino Peacock shop, which is in the hunt. As soon as I put it on I had to show you.
As you can see it’s a matching dress, shoes n bag set add to that all the mesh sizes, but sorry can’t remember the shoe fits. You even get 2 different textured tops this gray pin-striped shirt for a denim one. You will find this on a stand next to the desk in the back of the room, you may even get tempted by a rather pretty 60Ld dress offer on the wall next to it. I also have to say some really pretty Summer clothes here as well but I’m too mean to buy.
I’m actually already changed into my next freebie! so I thought before I get all confuddled I’d show you what I find while I’m meandering around the Flawless sim.
I mentioned a hunt a few days ago and it’s now well and truly started. I will give you the LM for the start which is the Entice shop but the big hunt boards are all over the sim and once you’ve clicked on them and received your Hud I think you get the offer to TP to the start in any case. So I’ve strapped on my hunting gun as well as the More Than Ever Hunt Gift and I’m ready to go.
So basically you were child minding and the little boogers ran off with their Mothers credit card and it’s your duty to search the sim to find the twin brats. You wear the hud and you follow the instructions. Pretty darn simple.
I will confess that probably like many who visit the Flawless sim only go to the 2 main shops which is Entice and the More Than Ever shop for me but actually, this sim and the one next to it are PACKED with shops I’ve never visited! It’s like a wonderland of “ooh this is new” and also “ooh group gifts” lol. In total only 11 of the shops on this sim are involved in the hunt but once I’ve clicked “publish” I’m heading back inworld and I’m going to stand on my platform and unpack everything inc the few GG’s I picked up along the way and then I’m returning to the sim because there were so many shops I didn’t go in and a few GG’s I spotted that I didn’t grab and I’m going to have a super lazy and relaxed SL afternoon.
A bit of advice though, make sure you have time to do this in all one go plus to “encourage” people to actually look around the shops some of the places you visit there is a little timer which means you have to loiter till the time is up. Don’t worry though as the average time it takes to do the whole hunt is just 45mins and although you don’t get the actual prizes till you find the bratty twins if I can find them then you sure as heck can as well.
