Too lazy to scroll.(Dollarbie).

Still busy in RL so KISSING it, again, today.

A simple pair of Spring shoes, if you scroll past a few posts I did another Freebie of a really gorgeous little pair of sweet sexy shorts and these shoes have such a similar cherry blossom texture they will make a match AND that top Faith found in her BRILL “Wardrobe Essentials for 10Lds” find and what a stunning look for just 11Lds.

For these, you will have to log into the Marketplace as they’re a Dollarbie gift from Slippers Originals.  There is an inworld shop but I don’t have any time for inworlding(sic) so I don’t know whats there so there might be another tasty surprise just waiting to be grabbed.

No no NOT the dress!(Freebie).

Sorry, although I would be so happy to be able to bring you such a glorious dress as a freebie this one is definitely a paid for one.

So I was spending a few mins in my home rezzing some more decor items out because you can never have too much clutter in your life, and I came across some items from Aisling and since they are so good I decided to do a quick TP and check out if they’re still there and they are.  Home decor items, low prim and high quality, a mix of things ie rug with cute rat poking it’s head out, some lamps and the items I was rezzing are some extremely realistic houseplants which at only 1 prim and many shades I will be placing everywhere.  There is even a lucky tub and I won a rotten apple…err not lucky tub for me then.

The one freebie I grabbed because I still have the others tucked away is this stunningly beautiful headdress of big fat Spring Roses.

As always I rezzed a copy of this on the ground to prim count and Holy Carp only 1 prim! So not only a stunning wearable but an equally stunning decor item.

I would have loved to show you them all but yet as always a rush in RL means I’ve had so little time and it’s such a shame as the other gifts set out are so good so make sure to check them out for yourself.

Anyhow, I’m taking a work day and SL day off tomorrow, although since New Year’s day I’ve stuck to my healthy(ish) diet plan tomorrow is my last blow out before I stick more rigidly to my diet because DAMNIT I want to be back into my skinnies!

PS if you’re interested then the dress is from Junbug.

I’m soooo READY (Super Bargains).

For Spring that is, only yesterday I spotted a Blue Tit in my garden so I rushed out to the shops and bought  a load of Fat Balls and I spent some time stringing them in the tree’s and next to the nesting boxes I have set out and fingers crossed the 2 little Blue tits that nested in my box last year come back.

Sighs because until then I’ll have to just Spring my SL LOL.  Popped over to Belle Epoque to check out if there was a New GG set out but have to confess I got side tracked by the bargains our there and forgot to even look for a Freebie.  This dress is so sweet, a lovely light satin sheen etc but what shows this item up as a piece of quality clothing is that the underside of the skirt is the same pretty pink satin texture as the belt.  Sweet n simple.

Although I was tempted by everything on the 30Ld stand, there is another 2 outfits and a lovely handbag, but because 90% of what I find ends up binned, insert sobbing here, but I’m definitely keeping this super cute parasol.  I had seen these previously at a large SL event and in fact if you love the Parasol but want a different colour then they’re for sale in the shop but you will have to pay full priced for them, and you do get a folded version in the full priced version, so basically to be able to snag this super cute item for just 30Lds was a treat.  It does come with a pose, not shown, but I also noticed that at only 8 prims this will also make an adorable decor item for your home.

Special Mention to my Clogs & Margaritta’s shop Mag<3.B.  This is a little shop which in all the years when I’ve popped in to snag the latest free Group Gift I’ve always found an absolute bargain and a treat.

Save my !Soul.

Even though this post was going to be just about the shoes I still can’t help but get dressed up and so I dug out my LBD (Little Black Dress) from my invent and pulled a few poses to show you the shoes that Moira Serenity the owner of Nerdy Girl sent me.

filmstockvel

These are basic “Mary Jane’s” which I think in the UK we refer to them as Court Shoes, very simple classy unfussy shoes.  I swear I saw if not these then almost identical ones in another shop but they had a hefty price tag to them whilst Moira has really kindly put these out as her new May Group Gift, added to that you get a colour changing Hud to go with them so I’m wearing the brown in this picture and the silver/grey in the next.  The 2 other colours are darkest black and a dark grey.  Just like my LBD a pair of good “Mary Jane’s” will go with so many items in your invent.  If by anychance you love the shoes but not the colours then there are other colour pack options but not as a Group Gift.

So as I’m posing I realised it’s been a long time since I last visited !Soul’s where my LBD came from and so I took  quick piccies and then TPed over and scored even more.

A simple “hippy chick” long line dress with that oversized ruffle.  Excellent fit and texturing.

This is another version of the LBD from my top picture.  Shannon Byron the owner of !Soul has a few dresses out in this design but with different texturing.  Each pack comes with 2 colour choices, this green and a yellow dress plus a normal and a bright version. There are more designs here to choose from so if these aren’t to your taste still pop over.  I’ve still got a couple of dresses from here which I blogged about a long time ago as they’re still really good and so easy to wear.

This is !Soul but not an !Soul Group Gift.  You will have to join the SL frees & offers Group (sic).  I keep on putting the sic because “SL frees & offers” is how it’s spelled.  It said it was a dress but I would have sworn it was going to turn out to be a top but nope it’s definitely a cute little short dress.  You will find this with the other !Soul Group Gifts and of course both groups are Free to join.

Spring Festival (Hunt & Cart sale)

Gardening trolley hunt gift (has poses) Chickens 1 prim 60L each !

Ahhhh Spring has sprung and little treats abound for you at The Cookie Jar. I didn’t really have too much time to do the hunt, BUT I knew if I were lucky enough to find the one from Finishing Touches Id be a happy girly. Thankfully I did (phew pressure pressure) and the gorgeous little trolley above was my reward. It’s so sweet and sits happily in my SL garden right now. Not only good lookin but it has poses too – for fiddling about gardening and one relaxing, nice touch ! Uhm well…onto the chickens – so I was wandering about looking for Finishing Touches (my internal navigation is always SO bad) and I stumble bumbled across Zinnias store. Saw these darlin chickens and HAD to have them ! Only 60L a pop (choice of colours) and just 1 prim, whats not to love huh?. Participating stores have a hunt prize for you to find plus a cart outside with some brilliant bargains all under 100L – if you’ve got some time it’s really worth the trip.

Sweet Dreams.(Freebie).

Thanks to a group shout out (SL offers & Free) I picked up this sweet freebie from Sugar Button Boutique.  You do have to join the group but thats free and there are other GG’s to be picked up inc a pair of SLink high shoes which although they’re excellent they don’t go with this pink outfit.

It is what it is, a simple mesh dress with a lovely light floral pattern and that scrunchy bow and it’s shop quality sweetness at it’s best.

If you go to pick this up turn to the room on your right hand side and slap the MM board in there, not sure what the prize is but a lot of people want it and there are also some Lucky Chairs as well.

FINALLY! Even though Faith and I rent our own sim we still use others as backgrounds and one of them is an extremely popular Baja Norte sim which is owned and run by Lauren Bentham, but she now has added a second rental sim to her estates, called Baja Cove and I have finally managed to rent myself a small beach cabin here…WOO HOO.

In all the time I’ve been a visitor to this sim I had yet to see a vacancy so the opportunity to rent was just too good and I really hate to tell you this but all of these new beach homes got snapped up in a heartbeat and from the looks of the rental boards, on the sides of the houses, it looks like most folks have rented for a full month.

I’ve cut and pasted this bit out of the info card about rentals..

There is an amazing amount of cool crisp water but also as much land as you need.  I’ve taken some nice photos but also check out Lauren’s Flickr page to see even more pictures of here and also her many other builds and shops.  I don’t know if many people on the land realise that over our heads is some of her other shops and builds such as Bentham Manor, Bentham Forest.  These are her shops but they’re set out as full builds for you to walk though and admire and if you like what you see just click and buy.  Again if you check out her Flickr account you will see these builds as well.  The best thing about this sim is you really don’t need much camera skills as this place is so lovely and packed with so many poses and props anyone can come here, group member or not, and take some great pictures.baja7

There are larger areas for groups to get together or smaller ones for more privacy but it goes without saying that you won’t find any naughty poses….snuggle ones maybe, rudie ones a definite No No .  In fact I’ve not checked the details but I should imagine it’s definitely a case of no jiggly bits at all, people come here for peace and quiet not for pervin, although what you get upto in private chat is upto you LOL.  If you’re here for 100% privacy then this isn’t the sim for you, a busy and very popular place for many people but you will be left alone.

I’ve been a full paided Group Member for a while now and this allows me rezzing privileges BUT of course it goes without saying if you rezz it you clean it up! and keep an eye on the prim count.  I’m not sure if there is a limit other than the ones for the home renters as to how many a paid Group Member can use but the reality is that rezzing a lot of prims esp at peak visiting times will be frowned up.  I’ve never had to rezz anything other than a pose ball or small prop as everything you could need is already provided for you.

If I had challenged Faith to find my home out of all of them without looking at the rental boards she would have found it in a heartbeat LOL.   I can’t really tell you much about the homes because they all were rented in a heartbeat and most of them look as though they were rented for a full month straight away so you will have to just strike it lucky like I did and keep on popping over to snag the occasional vacancy.  I’ve only rented mine for a week just so I can finally say “I lived there” and then move back to my own sim.crossgrenintrep

Last shot of the Freebie I’ve snagged.  Comes from S@bbia and is probably going to be the last winterish type of coat I’m going to show you.  Free to join the group and free to grab.  As I was LM grabbing I noticed that amongst the other Group Gifts there is a lovely bag which if I had spotted it at the time I would have grabbed that as I think it would have gone lovely with this coat as well.  The other thing I’ve noticed  is that this coat comes in all the standard mesh sizes but also inc a fitmesh size and I’m wearing that in this picture because although the other sizes fitted will this one fitted over my mesh trousers so it turned out to be very handy addition to the sizes.
