Just Chucks.(Freebies).

There are more Freebies in both the Petite Mort and Oubliette shops but I’m just showing you the shoes which I do believe are new.  So once you’ve grabbed these and checked out the rest of the Group Gifts then use the TP outside of the shops to TP to the other shop to check out their Group Gifts and don’t ignore the Lucky Boards as there are some nice gifts in there as well.

When I log back inworld I have to either removed or move that rug, the pixelation isn’t a “fault” as such.  This rug has been designed to be looked at from a distance and it looks great but I have noticed that the closer you get the more “faulted” it looks.

Anyhow, simple sneakers/trainers or as they’re called “Chucks” for the 3 main mesh feet.

Now for something random.

These 2 shops share the same sim and I’m going to guess there is some sort of relationship/friendship between the 2 owners but I’m way too lazy to look into that but most of you will have visited this sim and admired its stunning beauty.

I’ve just taken a couple of random shots of the Landing spot using the sim windlight because this is how I’m planning on landscaping our sim in the Autumn.

Faith and I have made our sim stunning, as always, but each and every season I think we just get better and better esp since it’s just a Homestead sim so unlike the full priced ones our has a small prim allowance.

But I already have plans, cunning plans some would say, and even if it means me killing off my livestock (I’ve had a mini farm on my part of the sim for years now) but to us SL is our RL addictions.

Now I’ve been back to LM grab I’ve taken a little wander around the rest of the sim and not just the area next to the LM and this is just so lovely, lots of places for people to hang out, lots of places to take stunning and foolproof pictures so before you walk/TP to the shops check the sim out for yourself.

Home Sweet Home (?)(Info only).

This is just a stunning rental sim but this post is just for info only and maybe to tempt you into becoming a renter in SL.

This little area is actually a small courtyard outside of someones home, the white door is their front door which I believe leads to their own inner courtyard.  TBH I didn’t cam or scan into peoples homes as I think it’s rude even if they’re not there and I’d certainly not take photos.

I’ve taken all of the pictures just in the sim setting and it does say that it’s seasonal so as dark as it is now when spring and summer comes along I can just imagine the whole sim bursting into light and colour but at this moment it’s darkness and foliage screams cold nights and hot chocolate. Obviously, you can play with the sim settings for yourself and choose whatever suits your mood so it doesn’t have to remain as it is in these pictures.

This is a courtyard area which is a hangout inc that welcoming coffee shop, on the right is a wall to yet another courtyard in front of a rental home which I believe is actually vacant.

There is a web site but it’s sadly years out of date and the LMs are now obsolete but I’ve found the LM to the rental board showing the vacancies and giving you the LM’s.  I’ve put 2 LMs one to where the rental office is and the other the courtyard but each time I come to this sim I find more areas of interest.

The rent boxes are also easy to find.  They’re just little “post boxes” on the front gates, entrances to the homes.

Again just look at the detailing in the landscaping.  This is the pathway leading to someones home.

It’s not all in the same sort of theme either, there is a seafront, this little harbour, an Italian themed pool all using buildings, decor and landscaping from the top shops in SL.

Here is the BUT, quality like this does not come cheap.  The rentals do vary in price but I personally do not think it’s unreasonable. Taking into account that they have used builds, landscaping and decor from only the top SL shops to make this whole sim stunning and on top of that the prim allowance is pretty darn generous if I hadn’t my own sim to play in I’d rent here in a HEARTBEAT!

Vita Camino or Giardini Di Vito are the people who have created this sim and also you can buy the landscape texturing from their MP shop and I will be doing that for our sim at some stage.

A proper Yorkshire welcome.(Freebies).

Before I sit down to unpack I want to reblog my outfit and give you a tour of “Yorkshire”.

The top, pants and although you can’t really see the flat sandals are all separate freebies from Loordes of London and you should find them where the LM takes you. Nearby you will also find all the special offer items, “Steals ‘n’ Deals” 30Ld Tue offers etc and that’s a great place to pick up not just a bargain but Colleen Macarthur also hides all the hunt items in that area so it’s a “piece of p*ss” to find them.  Most if not all come with a tiny price tag and I don’t think there is a new hunt prize to show you but I’ve never been disappointed with the prizes.

I can’t remember how I ended up in “Yorkshire” but since I was here and I was looking good I decided to snap away.

Actually, this isn’t a sim it’s a platform in the sky but I’m still going to call it a sim.

It’s just lush and as a Northern Lass, I know Yorkshire pretty well and even honeymooned in a cottage set in the middle of some stunning landscapes.

All of these pictures were taken in the sim setting and as always I totally encourage you to go and have a try at taking your own pictures.  If you remember the trick is to “save to disk” so that any pictures you take in SL are saved directly to your computer and costs you nothing so you can click away till you get the picture you like.

Now I remembered how I ended up in “Yorkshire” it’s because I was visiting the PinkRayne shop and because “PinkRayne” is also the creator of this sim she has a TP board from her shop to the Yorkshire platform and other locations such a Petit Chat.  Also if you do go to Yorkshire you not only get the LM sent to you but also a very interesting note on the evolution of this sim and the love and attention that’s gone into it.

PS. The Loordes LM does take you to the wall with the free shoes/top and you will find the pants on the little table there.

10 out of 10=10(each). (Hunt, GG’s & Freebies).

I popped over to the Petit Morte and Oubliette shops who both share the same and stunning atmospheric sim and they’re also sharing the same hunt and the same shop-wide 50% sale.

The LM takes you to the middle of the sim and there you can grab all the info on the hunt inc a cheat list, a picture of the prizes and what you’re looking for.  And of course, I cheated because the prizes are spread over the sim and with the clues, it was so easy.

Each hunt item costs 10Lds, which is bloody cheap for quality items and I would have been happy to have won any of them but since I wanted an excuse to wear the new Mina wet hair I went for the bikini.  This does come in 2 parts so it added up to 20Lds but again CHEAP and I love that word.  My hair is covering the top part but it has the same detailing at the bottoms.  A very dark maroon colour and I’ve only used the sim setting to show it to you.

There is a nice mix of wearable clothes, skirt, top, shoes, this bather etc.  At the LM as well as the hints you can pick up a free wearable beach bag which is a prize on its own PLUS I’m about 99% sure that both shops have free to join groups and both have GG’s and Lucky Boards and I recognised some of the GG’s so again I’m pretty sure that’s because they were free.

Plenty of mesh bod fits as well but it’s lunchtime and I’m getting Hangry so I will click “Publish” now and add the fits later when I’m less Hangry.

Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, and SLink fits.

From one extreme to another.(10Ld gift).

I mentioned in my last post about the new sim created by Lauren Bentham and here is just a taste of it.

Again another STUNNING MASTERPIECE! I took this picture just at the landing spot but now I have had time to wander around this sim, called Netherfield, it’s reminded me of old classical paintings of the English countryside, google John Crome, and that’s what you get.  Dark rich colours, farms, old English buildings, animals, streams, and brooks and all of this is just for us, just for people to come and relax, take photographs or just to dream for a little while.

The icing on the cake is you CAN REZZ! You will have to pay to have that privilege but it’s only the one-off 150Lds joining fee and that means you can rezz a prop, pose or a chair just to sit there and soak in the relaxing atmosphere.

Phew, sorry about all that but here is a nice little giftie to finish off with and it just costs you the 10Ld joining fee for the Teleport Hub group you have to join.  There are other gifts for other groups and I think they’re free to join but I’d totally recommend that you still join the Teleport Hub group as it comes up with some real nice gifts.

PS. I’ve just TPed over to yet another new sim from Lauren Bentham and I will tell you about that at a later date but at each Landing spot you will see notice boards about them all so you can TP to whichever one takes your fancy.

Simply Super.(Freebies).

A nice simple and delightful gift from a shop I’ve not come across before called Knot & co.

Actually, that should be “Gifts” as you not only get these 4 cool Summer drinks you get the same 4 as WEARABLES and a pretty decent hold pose as well so you’re going to see many pictures with me using them as props.

Lemon, Pineapple, Cucumber and Strawberry and only 2 prims each.  There are other gifts one of which is nails but I was so happy with these I couldn’t wait to get home and try them out as the stall I’ve rezzed them on still has OMG Christmas/Winter cookies and hot chocolate on it. That’s my fault as this stall is right next to my home and even where I rezz inworld so I should have noticed well before now lol. So it’s time to pack away all those treats and rezz some more seasonal ones and then I can try out the nails I scored as well.

PS Even if you’re not into decor n nails (and the other gifts which I now can’t remember what they were) go for the sim.  A very retro themed sim with an amazing windlight setting plus a small private beach which I will be using in future for photos.

“I Do” (Freebie n stunning sim).

This is just a random quickie, which sometimes can be the best…wink wink lol.

I TPed over to not only a brand new shop to me but also to SL and as soon as I landed I had to take a piccie of the sim setting.

Thats me in my fav suit and rocking a big hair.  Faith and I have removed our sim surrounding and we want to replace it with something as stunning as this one is but so far I’ve not worked it out if it’s just a simple change of Windlight or if there is some sort of sim surround you need to buy.  Time is so short for both of us but we will work it out soon and soon our sim will have a vista a lovely as this.

The new to me and SL  shop is called Merak and it’s pretty small in size and stock but what little is there bodes well for the future.  Quality 100%, prices pretty reasonable and a choice to buy items individually or as a set is always appreciated and of course FREEBIES.

For the sake of time I just zoomed and snapped in the shop but I can guarantee these are tucked away in my invent as well.

XXXWindlightuse2

So simple so pretty.  Only 1 candle will light and it gives off a very soft glow.  You get the 3 of them and each is a different metal.

Then I started to wander around the sim for a little while.  When you look down from the cliff the shop is set upon you can see another very pretty shopping area which isn’t very busy at the moment but I wandered around in any case and came across another tiny little shop with a couple of STUNNING Brides dresses! I’d say “I do” in a heartbeat just to wear one of these dresses, so unique so gorgeous BUT heck why wait for Mr Right and just buy them for yourself.  I’ve not even had a chance to try the demo on I grabbed but these gowns can be worn anytime, anywhere you would want to make an impression.  I’m actually now not looking forward to trying the demo’s on because I might just get tempted.

XXXWindlightuse3

Then when I walked out of the dress shop, I’ll update this post when I get back inworld and I can grab the LM, and looked up this is my next destination.  Those builds don’t look like shops but the whole sim looks like a very interesting place to mooch around and maybe take some piccies.

Update cos I’m actually inworld mooching around this great looking sim and Damn those are rentals! Sorry though because as you can imagine none of them are empty because finding a residential sim which has been landscaped to perfection is hard to find so once you’ve got your AV ass into a great home you don’t move lol.  However as long as you don’t go inside and snoop a stunning sim all round for pictures and posing.
