FLF Treat Time!

I always look at the FLF (Fifty Linden Friday) list first thing in the morning when the blog site Seraphim posts it and today for the first time I’ve treated myself to a total of FIVE items!

I got the Valentina E outfit.  This is a brand I love but it never comes in my SLink fit so when I get the chance to own an item from this shop it’s a woo hoo but there is a BIGGER Woo Hoo because the jacket and skirt can be worn as separates!

PS.  The demo is brown but I knew that the FLF is for this teal colour so I thought I’d let you know just in case you think it’s the same as the demo.

The hair is DP Yumyum and next to Mina’s this is my fav hair shop.  Try the demo on because I’ve had to use the L size and I think my noggin is pretty standard by SL standards. You get a choice of 3 colour palettes as well.

The cat is, of course, one of the Jians.

What you can’t see is I bought the Seven Emporium shelves, excellent, the Peaches beach bag, excellent and I will return to the FLF list as I want to check out the Izzies freckles and the Fourth Wall offer.

I’m not giving you a link to each shop I’m giving you the link to the Seraphim Blog as they not only show the items on offer but you can follow the LM link to the shop.

Guess where I’ve been? (Group Gifts 20Ld & Dollarbies & Great Service).

I finally managed to squeeeeeze into the Blueberry shop and it was so worth it, not so I could spend my FREE Credits but because there is a New Group Gift and it has to be said that the “old” Group Gifts are either still top quality or pretty new so if you’ve not visited for a while make sure to check them out.

Just like fur in SL, a “Puffer” look is so hard to do but this puffer jacket is the best I’ve found and to find that not only does it cost the token Group joining price of 20Lds you get a “Megapack” for both the jacket and the tied t-shirt layered under it.  Want more? You also get that t-shirt as a separate wearable…honestly how good is that.

BTW The Gift Card is STILL available.  If you pay the 20Lds joining fee then check out the group notices and scroll down to the “Blueberry 8th Birthday” note as that is the one that contains the gift card.  Do not activate it until you can get into the shop as once it has been activated you have 2 weeks to use it or lose it.  A good way to beat the lag is to check out the outfits in the Marketplace shop and select what you’d like to buy and then TP to the shop as of course you can’t use credit on the MP.

BTW Did you know that upstairs at Blueberry there are Gacha’s?  I didn’t till someone mentioned it in a post but the other thing they mentioned is that it’s best to use them when the shop is quiet…and the shop is hardly ever quiet lol.

PS. There are also a small number of Dollarbies in the Marketplace shop.

WOW Talk about great customer service!!!!! So I was lucky to be able to get into the Blueberry shop to treat myself to something and something went wrong, not sure why but it doesn’t matter because I dropped a note to one of the Customer Service people and not only did I get an instant response, she was actually inworld though so I may have had to wait a bit otherwise, but not only did she resolve the problem she did it so well I ended up with a SH*T EATING grin on my face!

Aww Hell NO! (Freebies).

There I was slowly and surely working my way through the FaMESHed event when the notice came through that the Gacha Gardens is now open for business and you know me when I get a sniff of freebies I’m off.

I wast going to save doing a post about it till tomorrow but as soon as I put this wearable floating cloud on I knew I just had to do it right now.

Another freebie and it’s “copy” & “Editable” so that’s why there is a nice pile of petals next to the pot.

I didn’t get around the whole event as it’s only just started and so I will have plenty of time to do the rest as I think there is another event for me to visit and then I really do need to sit down and sort through all the amazing gifts which have been given out over the past few days.

Are we being spoiled rotten with so many shops/people/designers etc making our SL just a bit nicer to take our minds off the sad bits of our RL.

Drinkies! (Freebies).

The event I mention in my last post is called the “Beauty Sales” event and once in the group, you stand a chance of winning a massive gift card but only if you stay in the group and you’re very VERY lucky.

You can still walk away with this free outfit as it’s an LSR design but is the gift for this event.  It does come with shoes which totally match the outfit but I didn’t want to zooooooom out that much lol.

I didn’t see any other freebies at this event but I did see a lot of discounted items from big named shops so I treated myself to a couple of the backdrops from the Unicorn stall which for 150Ld each I thought were worth it, (I got the boxing ring backdrop as well).

The bottles I’m wearing are also freebies which I picked up from the Crystal shop, they have a stall at this event which is how I ended up checking out their main shop.  Lots of poses with wearable drinks, very handy but I should drop Faith a warning for her to avoid this shop as I also checked out their sale items and this particular pose shop seems to specialise in wearables such as shopping bags, food, fun things etc and she loves her wearables.

PS.  I suspect the LM takes you to the middle of this shopping sim which is nice and open so you the Beyond shop and the other shop I mentioned and to find the “Beauty Sales” event just turn around a bit.

Too early! (Freebie/Cheapie & New Mina).

Finally, I’ve found out where this new Mina hairdo is on sale and it’s at Uber which isn’t opened just yet.  Since as always I suggest you try out the demo at the lag-free comfort of Mina’s mainshop I will put the link for there and when Uber opens you will know if you want to buy it.  Plus it also means you can check out the other ponytail hair Mina sells.

From behind it’s one of her simpler ponytails, both youthful, sporty and classy.

As mentioned she has a range of ponytails from the understated to big assed horse tail ones so what is different about this one.

Apart from the change in the layout of the hud which has the big colour packs and the slider to allow you to tweak your shades, make sure to make a copy of your hair if you’re going to play with those sliders.  The main difference is that to me I can see more shading in the hair strands.  It’s the RL difference of dying your hair at home from a box kit or going to a hairdresser and getting it done professionally.  A home dye kit is more flatter in colour while a hairdresser gives your hair more depth and colour to your hair.

The other thing that stands out but sadly not as well as I would have hoped in my picture is the fringe/bangs.  You can see the eye through the hair, she’s managed to do that with her most recent hat/hair in that the brim of the hat is a mesh and you can actually see your face through the mesh…..ok I’ve not had enough coffee to be able to explain it clearly.

As always though TRY it for yourself not only so you can see what I’m talking about but we all know what looks simply fab on one may not look so fab on another.

OK NOW for the cheapies which is obviously the clothes I’m wearing.  I went over to Paper Sparrow as the notice they sent out about some sale items had a pair of shoes I was interested in but I couldn’t find them what I did find was the “The Stay at Home Gift” which is the strappy top I’m wearing in the top picture and it’s nice but not half as nice as the 5Ld green “Save the tree’s, wipe with an owl” top and another 10Lds gets you that bodysuit.  These are for 2 other groups which is why they have different price tags.  Do NOT join the “Fushion and Fashion” Group because you don’t get the jacket you get some PJ’s unless of course you are already in that group or you want PJ’s. I ain’t mad as it was only 10Ld, I think, and these things happen.

I think there is a couple of hunts going on as well.

PS.  There is a man’s version of the green top as well and if I was a man I’d get it.

10th time unlucky. (10ld Gift & Mention of Freebie(s)).

How many of us have been trying to get into the Blueberry shop! Even trying to cam in from one of the camming sims has been impossible. As I was checking the sim again to see if I could squeeze in someone mentioned in Group Chat about it would be a good idea to check the Blueberry Marketplace shop so you can see and try the demos on therefor saving yourself a lot of time, stress and lag if and when you do get into the Blueberry shop.

So that’s how I ended up on the MP looking at Blueberry clothes and that’s how I got this No Cabide 10Ld offer lol.

I don’t know if I have or have not shown you this top/skirt combo, fab detailing, lots of movement and a massive hud for only 10Lds!

I have blogged a lot of the excellent 10Ld Marketplace offers for both No Cabide and next door is the DM shop which you may recognise the name of as I’ve scored some tasty items from that shop so since you’re there check it out and also check out the 30Ld little sporty set on the wall to your left as you go in…it’s got me tempted.

Guess who’s back…MINA of course. (New Group Gift).

Mina (Nakamura) the Boss Lady of Mina’s hairs decided to take a break over Christmas and the New Year so she could come back to SL refreshed and I’m going to assume with a shed load of fresh new designs.  I must admit I’d was having withdrawal symptoms and had been checking her shop on an almost daily basis for the past week to see if there was something new so to get a notice this morning about a NEW Group Gift made me stay inworld just a bit longer when I should have logged out and logged into RL.

When I first got it I thought “wait a mo “Harper” isn’t that an old hair?” and it is but this is the updated version.  I’ve not tried on the old Harper as a comparison, I’ve just binned it now that I have this newer one, out with the old and in with the new as I say.  I suspect that since there was nothing wrong with the old Harper as Mina’s hairs do seem to last the test of time what is updated is the colour pack.

For the initial 200Lds it costs to join the Mina VIP Group you get this hair, only in the blonde shades but the blondes go from in my opinion light brown to creamy light brown…doesn’t matter as you can try the demo before you join the group.

If this hair tempts you but you want more for your Lindens then check out the area to the right of the desk, at the base of the stairs and there you will find a wall of older and yet still wearable Group Gifts.  There is hair for both men and women BUT take them all.  Although Mina does have male hair upstairs a lot of her female hair is as good on him and her. So for your initial 200Lds, you can score a lot of very wearable long-lasting hair.

Can I also remind you that there are also Gacha’s in the Mina shop.  I was wandering SL yesterday and I was in a clothes shop which actually had 2 Mina Gacha’s in the shop.  This was the first time I’ve seen Mina’s Gacha’s elsewhere so it was a reminder to me to remind you to check those out.  None of them is over 100Lds, in fact, I think they average 75Lds for some great hair, some of my fav hairs come from Gacha wins and in fact Kismet strikes because I went and checked and “Inkie” the hair I wore in my last post is a Gacha win, only 75Lds etc…demos are out for Gacha wins just in case you want to make double sure it will suit you.

PS, I think it’s a 10% discount you get if you buy any hair from Mina if you’re wearing your Group Tag and of course there are 2 Lucky Chairs as well.
