Keeping it basic.(Dollarbie).

RL has been hectic both in a good and bad way but I’m hoping today it will have calmed down and so later I can log in and spend some quality freebie hunting time.

I really just came in to see if the Apple Fall sim had calmed down enough for me to squeeze in and buy some bargains in the sale that’s going on and of course it’s still PACKED and Damn I think the sale is over tomorrow but I will persevere cos Mamma needs new furniture!

For some reason, I decided to pop over to the LM next to the Apple Fall LM in my invent as I didn’t really recognise the name.  Although the group is free to join I couldn’t see any GG’s set out what I did see is the Bunny you’re hunting for in the “Beached Bunny Hunt”.

The minute I put this outfit on my first thought was “Mom Jeans” Lol.  The top and jeans aren’t separate but you do get a pretty big hud which changes the texture/colour of jeans and top.  I actually started to like this the more I wore it as it’s understated and casual. Lots of mesh bod fits as well.  Although this is a hunt prize you don’t really need to hunt the bunny you have to look for as it’s right there on the desk and costs a Linden to buy.

OK time to log off as I’ve not had my second cup of coffee or my porridge and trust me until I’ve had them no one likes me!

Upcycling.(Freebies).

I have mush for brains today so I was grateful that this freebie(s) was the first thing I opened in my notices.

Yup as soon as I put it on I thought “let’s have a fag and hang out near a dumpster” ok of course not this as the checkered wrap over top is screaming beach and Summer and all of that but I’m secretly a rebel even if it is in my own little mind LOL.

So this is, to me, a New Freebie from Coco Design and in a way it does look a bit like an upcycled tablecloth quite unusual for Coco Designs usual elegant and yet edgy look.

Don’t worry though as if this isn’t to your taste and you’ve yet to visit Coco Designs you will love the other freebies and although you don’t really see them much the jeans and shoes I am wearing are also 2 of the Free to join GG’s.

Planking Mad!(Freebie).

I’m starting to “plank” which basically is a pose which you hold and it forces your inner core muscles to work hard and it is HARD but fortunately you do start off doing it for just 20 seconds and then over I think a period of 30 days you work up to a couple of minutes.  I know others who have done this and have all said it really is beneficial so I figured why not….will give you an update in 30 days.

Yes, yet another SL classic which isn’t a bad thing at all because not everyone has seen this style before because they’re new or haven’t been interested in what they’ve seen so far etc but even jaded old me put this on and went “yesss”.  Damned good texturing, all the fits and can be worn as seperates means very handy.  I’ll be heading back to grab the black version, on the other board in the entrance as I hadn’t expected it to be so good and the black version will be just as handy.  Will admit that I am a lazy blogger, unlike Faith, and it I had the time I would have blinged it up with chains, bracelets, gems, arm cuffs etc but I’m lazy(ok time limited lol).

PS. Yesterday I was having “issues” in SL and weirdly enough I couldn’t get my SLink flat feet to change skin colour to fit my bod but that did remind me that I do believe there is updated SLink versions out there so when I log in maybe it’s time to check that out as I’ve never had issues before.

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?

Debating (and mention of a really good Freebie).

I was bored and so I was just TPing to random old LMs in my invent when I landed in a shop called “Albino Peacock” which I remembered from a previous visit.  There is a gift in this shop, not this outfit I’m afraid, and I do remember blogging that and I would highly recommend you go for that but if you have a few Lindens to spare then to your left in the shop is a discounted section and this is where I found this super frilly dress.

There is a bit of a niggle in the back of my mind that this dress is something I’ve blogged before but I’ve checked my invent and I can’t find it not even under a relabelled folder.  I could be wrong and have already blogged it but at 63Lds just a really lovely and very interesting frilled dress.

For some reason, not every outfit in this shop comes with a Demo and that’s the case with this dress so I’ve taken the pictures in my sim setting only which is a lovely skin and clothes flattering setting.  Try the demos out for other outfits so you can make sure you like the quality and you will know that although you can’t try the exact demo out for this one the quality will be just as good.  Again because of no demo I will list the fits which are just SLink, Maitreya and all the standard mesh fits.

There are other discounts in this section but also there are 2 outfits in the main shop, it’s not a very big shop, which I really would love to buy esp the one priced at just 100Lds but I have to be realistic as I would never really get the wear out of them but soooo tempting some very nice textures in this shop so go get tempted.

PS Remember there is a Freebie next to the desk and you have to join the SL frees & offers group(sic).

Albino Peacock

I’m sorry (not sorry).(Free and Cheap).

I know that these have been blogged before but if my memory is correct it will have been a long time ago and so chances are to some of you lovely peeps they will be new.

Outside of Asteria are stands and those on your right as you face the shop are lots and lots of FREEBIES and those on the left are CHEAPIES.

Even better is that all the freebies come in a range of colours and textures so this simple sleeveless top comes in about 5 different shades, I’ve just used the one I already had in my invent.  The jeans again come in a variety of textures and this pair the belt is an addon and since these are very low! I wore the belt.

This is one of the cheapies, 39Lds for a bit of cheeky boob flashing.  Comes in standard mesh fits and the “M” size fits me perfectly and even the lower back of the blouse fits over these pants neatly.

I have to confess that this dress actually comes in 2 layers the underdress and this sheer overdress and since I have a cheeky inner sl*t I had actually binned the underdress as I knew I wouldn’t really wear it.  Actually, this dress looks fab over a bra/panties or bikini set.  Ths is another paid for item and I can’t remember how much but the ones on the left hand seem to be priced between 12-50Lds and I have a feeling this was nearer to the 25Lds that the 50Lds.

So again sorry(not sorry) for reblogging these and if you’ve never been over to Asteria it’s time to go.

Asteria

I failed!(Freebie n Dollarbie n New Mina).

Although I did manage to clear out some of my invent with so many offers coming through from the freebie groups I’m in thatI had to go and check them out and ended up with more stuff in my invent.

KEEPERS for me and I say it in plural because you get the skirt, top, sunglasses, bag and flippy flops and then times them by 2 because you get this set as well.

I’m not actually sure which texture is my fav so I’m keeping both.  They come as separate and in all mesh and non-mesh bods.  The flip flops also come with if I remember a 6 colour hud option but sorry can’t remember the feet they are for and yes I rezzed the bag even though it comes with a wearing pose, not used, as it makes for a great decor item and again if my memory is correct it was about 6 prims.

There are other Group Gifts but although this little number is in the DM shop you have to join the free “Ficamos Lindas” group, just click on the image and you will get the link to join.

I also spotted that the pictures on the floor leaning against the wall are all set as Dollarbies and I grabbed this one.

This boobie flashing cheeky little number strikes a bell with me so I don’t know if Faith has blogged it a while ago or it was sent out in a previous notice and I just didn’t follow up but anyhow here it is.  The top comes in all sizes and also a colour hud and the panties are in an Omega applier as well as the system clothing layer.

Now for the New Mina hair and I think you can tell from the styling that this is available at “The Vintage Fair” and is called Betty.  The fringe on both sides have big fat pin curls which give it that “retro” look.

As you all know I’m not into techie stuff but the one thing with all the big and busy events that now take place I have become more acutely aware of that little box that pops up to tell me what my “avatar complexity” is, and just to test it out I’ve popped a non Mina hair on and it’s sent the numbers rocketing through the roof and that often can cause you to lag or for other people not to be able to see your AV fully formed, is this when you become a Jelly person?  I’m not really sure if I have any Mina hair that even scratches the surface of being lag causes but she has always included a “Material” and Non-Material” version in her packs.  The non-material simply mean that they’re just slightly not as complex and therefore someone who has a computer that struggles with SL or busy places might find this is a better version to wear.  She’s now made it even simpler and there are now 2 tabs on the side of the hud for you to click to whichever option suits you so you don’t have to take one hair off to put the other version on you just click the Hud.  BUT again I have to say that for all their details and texturing I cannot think of any of her hairs even the material version comes come even close to making you have issues.

As Alway check out the Mina Mainshop for the Demo but don’t worry as this is such a large event the couple of times I’ve been over it’s been busy but also quiet enough for a nice saunter around.  The LM takes you close to her shop it’s simple just one of them on the corner so easy to find.
