Surprise!

I’ve always loved Frangipani Garden for their gorgeous housewares and cheeky hamster items, imagine my surprise when I popped over to their satellite store and noticed clothes ! I had to buy something and try it on just to see if the clothing is as scrummy as the decor stuff. It SO is ! This is the “Asian Bird” dress (in blue,other colours on offer) The pack has Maitreya,Slink and a standard fits all size. It’s really got a hint of retro about, Sunday best sort of thing – I was charmed. My bag is from The Seahole market place shop, just $1L – actually have a good ferret through the store as it’s ALL $1L and some really great pieces to snap up.

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.

It’s a KISS.(Freebie).

I did some more old LM TPing yesterday and I’ve always wondered what purpose “abandoned land” has and why Linden Labs leaves these undeveloped sims around and then I stop wasting brain cells cos God knows I can’t afford to loose too many.

So one of the places I TPed into is or rather was is an old shop called Paradisis, which is you have been in SL for as long as I have you will know was a shop that was a fashion leader in SL but this is a brand new and completely different sort of shop so basically not Paradisis lol.

OK yes, I know a classic style dress that you’re probably had and binned a few already but it’s pretty darned well textured and simple Summer outfit so well worth checking it out even if you think you wouldn’t like it.

However, this is also a post for stuff I’m not showing you and that’s KNICKERS!  OK, It’s actually full lingerie sets of bra’s, panties etc BUT not for mesh heads like me.  These are all old stock from the old Paradisis shop and don’t even come with Appliers just system layers.  I don’t know how these undies and the other non-mesh freebies have stood up to the test of time but if they have and you don’t like or use a mesh bod then you can’t go wrong and try these freebies out for yourself.  I know that a couple of the gifts are actual items I owned before my Mesh Bod addiction!

The TP takes you to a small shopping platform with little shops on and one of them is where you will find the freebies I’ve mentioned but there is quite a few in there inc a VERY rude beach towel which is actually really nice and has some very nice poses in it as well as the RUDE ones LOL.

PS Don’t look at the hair, OK you can if you want to but this is a New Mina and isn’t available till the Hair Fair opens so I will let you know more about it them but isn’t it simple, sweet and understated?

I’m moving and it’s a “Fax”.(Freebies).

I wish I was moving even just for a week or two but the sims I use for my beachy shot are usually so fully booked up I don’t stand a chance.

I get so many notices that a lot passes by me and of course a lot of them are repeats so I’m very pleased I didn’t miss this one about ::Fax:: as they have a nice freebie and some Dollarbies for us.

I swear I’m not giving that couple behind me a second glanceLOL.  The top from the top picture is the freebie and comes in ALL the sizes, the skirt isn’t an exact match but close enough and for just a single Linden a nice little shortie for your invent.  This green dress is another Dollarbie and woah lovely indeedie(sic).  Comes in ALL the sizes, will admit that even though I wore the SLink fit I still had to use my alpha but trust me all the sizes any one could want or need.  There is a couple of more items and sorry no inworld shop so log into the MP if you haven’t already.

Making up for it.(Freebies).

I’m “Kissing” it this Sunday as OMG the sun is out and so am I, even if it’s just for 10 mins in the garden before it starts to rain.

So these 2 items might actually be reblogs, I have no shame reblogging stuff lol esp if I’m just not sure if I have or have not.

First is the dress which is now a classic SL design and it’s truly sheer which means it’s a mesh bod fit and from what I remember it comes with all the well known Mesh Bod fits and an AV Classic Fitmesh size.  It also comes with a big 10 colour option Hud which is pretty nice and there is a red and black option for those saucy moments but the rest of the shades are super light pastels and perfect for the Summer season.

Normally when I do shoes I like to do them in my studio because I struggle to get nice close ups but I actually managed to do it where I was so that made a nice change.  So here is some Spring/Summer Floral shoes to make up for my last post of Christmas shoes LOL.

The dress comes from No Cabide and the shoes from Hilly Haalan and both shops esp the Hilly Haalan one has a LOT of Freebies and I know you will have seen a lot of them already on our blog and others, I know you look at other blogs you sneaky things lol,  but pop over in anycase if not for these gifts but to check out what else there is for you because esp at the Hilly Haalan shop there is a whole wall of them.

PS If you don’t want to be a Sl*tbunny and want panties to go under the sheer dress I’ve popped the LM to Elegance Boutique where you can get them for free and they come with a really BIG Hud.

Saw the new bunch of loveliness from Neve and just fell in love with this little frock. This is “surrender” and its got some really cool details on the sides and back. I choose this tie dye sorta pattern but there are several other options to gawp at too. Comes in standard and mesh body fits hurrah! I also trudged over to Agrace as I hadn’t been in a little while, snapped up this gorgeous hair “Misaki”, it’s a casual look and one I adore, so it became mine ❤
