Thank you VeNuS(Freebies).

I was just about to throw the towel in as my hunting for goodies just wasn’t going very well at all, add to that PumeC, the skins I wear 95% of the time is having a SALE(with 2 other shops) OMG! So even before I TPed over I bought a load of Lindens then hot footed it over and of course it’s PACKED to the rafters and LAG HELL!  So I gave up till it’s quietened down. But then to my surprise, I actually managed to TP to the latest round of The Arcade woo hoo and although I did splash some cash there is CAKE for all and by that I mean in the middle of this event is a giant cake with pressies on it for everyone (I was in such a rush I’ve forgotten for which Birthday it’s for).  I’ve not started to unpack them yet but some of the top shops have given us goodies so that’s going to be a really nice way to kill a lazy afternoon.

Then the icing on the cake was the notice from VeNuS about these NEW Group Gifts.

Humma Humma Humma theses have made up for such a poor morning of hunting as they’re such good quality.  You get so many mesh feet fits I’m gonna be lazy and not list them.  There is a whole load of shoes waiting to be grabbed and if you have time to kill then there are Lucky Chairs loaded with even more shoes and you can NEVER EVER have too many shoes!

Since I will be spending a lazy afternoon unpacking my The Arcade goodies you might see them in my next post but I will add the LM so you can also pop over to get them as soon as you want to.

Plus of course, you might be able to get into “The Multistore Sale” event when it’s quietened down.  There are 2 other shops in this sale, Sintiklia and Chain and I will confess I know nothing of these 2 other shops but what I do know is I ADORE PumeC skins and although I think that full priced they’re worth it and they’re really pretty reasonable price and on and on so to get my mitts on some new skins for “upto 75%” off is just too good to miss.

Public Service Announcement (The Arcade and not getting in!)

shopping

There have been a few debates about Arcade yardsales here and there. I’m firmly in the yard sale camp, especially for The Arcade. It’s the one event I really just give up trying to get into in the first week – it drives me NUTS waiting and waiting, especially as I see various goodies being used in blogs and photos. So, what’s a girl to do hmm?

The last few rounds of The Arcade I have done ALL of my shopping at yard sales. Some are generic gacha yard sales, some are specific for one or two types of events. My favourite of them all is the one run by Seraphim. It’s for the latest round of The Arcade ONLY – this means you can get your paws on the gear from the current round almost straight away on opening day – brilliant huh? I went over there on day one and scored all the items I had marked as “buys”. (Yes, tragically I go through the Arcade listing on Seraphims blog and write down everything I want before I actually go shopping. I just find it easy to forget what I wanted and / or get carried away on a gacha fuelled spending frenzy.)

The area is alphabetically laid out by designer name, which makes it so much easier to locate the articles you want to buy. Pull price is the norm, although I’m not sure about rares as I haven’t wanted to buy any and haven’t seen any there. Do check that the item is in the box before you buy – do this by going into edit mode on the item you want to buy and peeking into the contents tab. Also don’t forget to actually “take” what you’ve bought after paying!

Some people claim yard sales are taking money from the designers pockets, but I really don’t get with this line of thinking. Someone played the machine and paid the designer. They played multiple times or didn’t get what they wanted orrrrr got doubles/triples. The items are transferable, so can be traded or sold. What’s the problem? I have a budget in SL , same as real life and unless a gacha machine is really cheap (ie:$25L per pull) I wont be stood there filling the machine with my dosh until on the umpteenth pull I get what I wanted. Perhaps after I buy from a yardsale, the person goes back and plays more of the machines – who knows?!

Anywayyyyy, link below for the Seraphim yard sale, plusa handydandy link for their blog with The Arcade listings all neatly laid out for your perusal.

Scarlet Creative Arcade June

Tomorrow is the day ! The latest round of The Arcade opens on the 1st June, so gird your loins, warm up those teleport fingers (or lazy boy hud) and join the veritable stampede of people all wanting to feed those gacha machines. Scarlet Creative has yet again come up with the goods – I’m always surprised that Charlotte’s gacha machine is just $50L a pop, everything is quality, pretty and you get a real scoop with every win. The rare for this round is the Nerites house and gawd its lovely. A fairy tale build, tall spires from the roof, a slight flavour of the East with the design. Yet every nook and cranny screams shabby chic with a dash of Victorian! This is a one floor build with aspirations to a second floor with the use of heaps of huge windows, tons of glass and a unique layout.

Scarlet Creative @ The Arcade for June

I hope you can see how quirky the layout is from my photos, it’s always so hard to show it off. As you walk around the house wraps itself around you like a comfortable friend, you almost know it but then find a little corner hidden away to delight you with thoughts of what to place there.

Scarlet Creative Arcade June NEW

I’m never entirely sure with Charlottes builds, which is the front and which s the back – which is actually pretty cool, no defined way to use the space – it just works. You can see here the fantastic glazed area along one side – shouts out for plants and pots no?

Scarlet Creative @ The Arcade June 2016

I do love the textures used, I know I bang on about them but they are the fabric of the build. Charlotte’s uses such soft tones and peeling plaster, you feel as if you can reach out and rub a cheek against it, or smell the faded wood – each one to me is like a banquet for the senses.

Because I’m short on time but long on thoughts – you will have to make do with the advertising shot for the other gacha wins. Take my word for it though (and I’ve tested and fiddled about with EVERY piece) they are just gorgeous. I think I noted a couple of new poses in the sofa and bed which was a pleasure to find. Thanks Charlotte ❤

FREE tank,jeans & cardigan - Lamb hair NEW!

I was visiting the Gaall store yesterday, Player bought me a stunning outfit from there and I decided to take a poke around. Free to join group and a bunch of really awesome gifts awaits you, plus some unique and sweet outfits for around the $250L mark. I snagged quite a few but chose these two to share with you, plenty more though! I really loved this outfit above, you get the tank, jeans and crochet cardigan, all seperates so you can break the pieces up to mix & match.

FREE tshirt dress - Lamb hair NEW!

This long tee is just perfect for waking up in and having that first stretch & coffee of the day in. Both items fitted perfectly over my Slink Physique mesh body, I seem to recall the top one had a few mesh body sizes included also. My hair is from the latest round of The Arcade, by Lamb. I hate gacha’s for hair as I nearly always end up with some bizarro shade. I generally pick gacha hair up from yardsales, so I can get the exact tone I want. I used the Seraphim arcade yardsale to find this (and quite a few other things) They do have a huge list of yardsales – but – I only utilise the ones that sell the “current round only”, purely so I don’t have to wade through an ocean of older gear to find what I want.
