Goodbye my Fishie Friend. (Sale 25Lds).

It’s sad to see a shop that has been in SL for such a long time shut its doors for the last time but Fae Eriksen, the Boss Lady of Fishie Strawberry, for whatever reason has decided to do just that.  As a lovely goodbye gift, everything in her shop is priced at only 25Lds and did I go crazy?

Just a bit but so did Faith and I suspect Shi, who yet again dropped me this fab link.

I’m not showing much of what I bought because I’d recommend you still the demos before you buy as the sizes are a mixed bag.  I think the older items are in the basic mesh fit and the newer items are of course in mesh body and standard mesh fits etc so again try before you buy but old or new the quality is too good to resist.

PS. This is a bigger shop than you think, so once you’ve checked out the entrance room go past the customer desk and there is more in the back.  Plus I have blogged freebies from this shop before and there is no reason to assume they’re still not there.  You will find them on the wall were the front door it.

Multipul Choice Question.(Freebie).

Whats in the box?

  1. Kim Kardashians Bum.
  2. A box of sugar-free, guilt-free chocolates that actually taste amazing.
  3. A Maitreya top with a hud which is excellent and for me unwearable.

If you get it wrong you need to hang you Lelutka/Catwa/System head in shame.

I did try to take a picture of the top but with my SLink body, I couldn’t really get a good enough fit esp since I also wanted to get a close up of the texturing which is pretty darn good.  A nice amount of colours in the hud and although I couldn’t wear it again you may have the right mesh bod or an alpha that you can use.

A totally new shop to me called “Spectacledchic” and yes I did think I would find it full of glasses but nope, it’s a very small shop with an even smaller selection of clothing but very nice stuff.  This does seem to be slightly different in that you can only buy fat packs so the prices can appear to be a bit steep (I think they average 500Lds) but you do get a really interesting selection of textures and colours.  There is a pack of sheer blouses which I have to say is pretty darn tempting but because it’s 500Lds and for some reason it also looks like everything is gonna just be a Maitreya fit.  I can only hope that as the shop grows, which I’m sure it will, the owner will expand the mesh fits as well.

Although I had noticed the restricted fits I still decided to try my hand at the Gacha (75Lds) as lots of the styles look as though I could make them work and in fact the skirt I won is wearable it’s not the prize I had wanted to wear.

There is a price to pay to look this good. UPDATE (50Lds Group Gifts& Freebie).

I was mooching around a shop and because the outside of this shop is so beautifully landscaped I took a stroll and it turns out that it’s also the new(?)home of Caboodle.  Caboodle isn’t a free group but it has some excellent gifts out for us and I know for sure that some of them are still in my invent and will remain there but to me this is a new sporty outfit.

You get a 3 shade hud for the top and pants, white, gray and black, I think the black ones have a shiny satin look so they can be worn for evening wear as well.  You know me and sporty stuff, I love it and have an RL addiction as well, especially if it’s lycra and sucks the spare tires in and firms up the flab.

Sadly though this gift only comes in Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya and I’m wearing the Freya pants and hourglass top as these were the 2 fits I found the easiest to wear.  I didn’t have much bother getting a good fit on the leggings but damn only the Gazunga size would fit. So when you pop over check the fits of the gifts, unintentional rhyming, and of course you will also be able to work out what should be an easy to wear fit even if it’s not your actual mesh body sizing.

PS.  3 Lucky Boards with a quick turn over and prizes well worth loitering for

By Golly,she was right, IMPROLIBRA1 spotted that if you click on the blue makeup/beauty case on the desk it’s free for all.

You get sent 5 colours and each colour, apart from the red, comes with a textured option.  I’ve put the gray one in front because even men need to decor their SL homes and at 2 prims you can have matching his ‘n’ her grooming boxes next to each other on a vanity.

Thank you for letting me know.

I swear I’m not superstitious butttttt (Cheapies & Freebies).

Blimey for me personally Friday the 13th has certainly lived up to it’s rep and I wasn’t going to do a post but then I read a notice from Mina Nakamura and it was a case of “YESSS” something has finally gone right.

OK, First of all, I am wearing a super bargain cropped sweater which only cost 10Lds or in my case 20Lds as I forgot I already have it and in fact wear it a lot! I picked it up from the MP(Marketplace) as the MUTE shop isn’t inworld anymore.  Although I’ve had this particular top now for years it’s still a fine and wearable basic jumper with a colour Hud of 8 options.

As it happens everything in the Mute MP shop is only 10Lds and I can guarantee that it is great quality.  If I remember correctly the owner of Mute was shutting up shop and she decided to go out with bang and reduced everything to 10Lds and people went “cray cray” grabbing as much as they could but then she, Jayzee Netizen decided she would keep her shop open but the prices would stay the same.  There was a bit of a backstory to it which I am not too sure on but the long as short of it was a lot of people could buy some really affordable wearables.  The inworld shop got closed down years ago but the stuff is now all up in the MP.  If in doubt just buy the one item to check the quality but I bet you will log back in for more.

There is a reason I’m in Mina’s and it’s not because I’m wearing a Mina’s hair, I’m nearly ALWAYS wearing a Mina hair LOL it’s because of a notice that was put out.  Took me a while to muddle through it because my brain has had enough of “Adulting” today so I decided to cut & paste and you can read it for yourself.

“Last Chance Vendors” will go live on Sunday at 12:00 am SLT and will give you the last chance to pick up the gifts for a very discounted price of 50 LS.  MINA V.I.P. members receive 50% DISCOUNT on the “Last Chance Vendors” when wearing the MINA V.I.P. group tag
The amount of gifts is not limited, but the vendors will be live for 24 hours only. After that period the exclusive colors will not be available again.

So… if you missed out on a midnight gift you really wanted, be sure to drop by at the store by midnight SLT when the Last Chance Vendors go live!
Some creators offer an optional add-on color-hud for a discounted price. Keep your eyes out for those!”

So basically you have just 24 hours to slap a board on Sat and then hit the other one on Sunday and since there doesn’t seem to be anything about having to join a group I’m gonna assume each slap is for free LOL.

The note also mentions that because this is a popular event then cut back on you Avatar impact, there is actually going to be a security orb which I assume will just send you the message to cut your impact if you exceed the 50.000 limit.  This is for all the shops I believe and not just Mina’s.  This isn’t going to be an issue for most of us, even I barely scrape over the 30.00o but I do know that some hairs and Bento heads can cause an issue so ditch them and so everyone inc yourself can snag with minimum lag…Ooo I rhymed.

PS.Blimey I’ve been over to Mina’s twice and people are already TPing in believing the event has started but it hasn’t and if you check out the “Monthly Midnight Madness Blog” you will be able to see exactly when it does….BEST OF LUCK.

PPS I’m gonna say it again through, check out the Gacha’s in Mina’s shop.  One day I will have to show you some of them so you can see someof the great hair for a bargain price I go on about.

Don’t give in.(Super bargains so read the blurb).

Just as I was about the throw the towel in and give up looking for “that” ooo freebie/gift etc I put on an old pair of Ricielli shoes and YES!

Ricielli always has one of those paid for (non) hunts, so basically there is a big board and on it is what is in each hunt item and for a piddling 15Lds you can buy yourself shoes, dresses, tops, pants etc

The hunt which is going on in the main shop is actually still the Valentines one, TBH I was expecting it to have changed to a Halloween themes one but more about that later.   The TEMPTATION is so bad as there so much and I know from all the stuff I’ve got in the past its bloddy good stuff but honestly, I could just go Bat Sh*t crazy and buy the lot but this time I just bought the top LOL.  This top comes in 2 colours this dark greay and a pink one.  The shoes I am wearing but obviously, you can’t see are old “hunt” items and then there are these pants.

The one thing a lot of people may miss about the Ricielli shop is that there is a secret shop STUFFED with ALL of the old hunt items.  In fact, there are old Halloween items there as well.  Some of them are pretty old now but it’s hard to know which are old and which are the newer stock because the Ricielli stuff just doesn’t seem to age.  I picked up these leather pants from the old hunt section and for 15Lds and I thought they came in a limited 3 colour palette but in fact, you get a really good colour hud option with the ability to change the belt and hoops as well as the main body of the pants.

The top and pants come in so many mesh fits honestly you will have no problem finding the one for you or of course if you’re a non-mesh person then you will easily find an alpha to suit.  I also think when you click on the item before you buy it tells you whats in it so you can check for yourself.

PS. I couldn’t help it plus I think “Bridget” the hair I am wearing goes great with this outfit but Bridget is one of the Mina Gacha hairs that I adore.  It only costs 100Lds a try and although obviously, the colour palette you win is a risk you don’t just get 1 shade you get a whole colour palette of that shade.  Again you can try the Demo out first and if you like Bridget but don’t want to risk the colours then check out Faith and I don’t mean Faithless Babii lol.  Faith is another Mina with that curly, hippy chic look to it.

Hunt with me.(Freebie n Dollarbies).

A quick post as I’m actually doing this hunt at this mo but when I saw the quality of this top I TPed home popped in on and here it is.

xxxhunt

The top is the SL Frees & offers gift in the Shae’s Design shop.  I went to find the rose which is what you’re looking for in this hunt and I did find it but this was the winner.  It’s supposed to be “pink” but it’s not which is even better because pink is not my fav colour and brown definitely is.  A great fit comes in all mesh and mesh bod sizes from what I can remember and great texturing which all means it’s a KEEPER for me.

Now check out the flower behind me as that is actually a hunt gift from the Dixie Dandelion shop.  You get 2 versions this stand alone one and one on a stool.  Love the simplicity of it and it’s going to stay in my craft room.

I’ve found the page with pictures of some of the prizes, each prize only costs 1Ld but the SL Frees & offers is of course free.

Love me…Love me not. Hints & LM’s

Damn I’m useless! (Freebie Hunt).

I’m so glad this hunt isn’t in the PurpleMood Creations shop as I have quite a few outfits from here where I actually PAID money for them LOL and since I don’t want to be tempted into spending too much it was a relief that I wasn’t going to have to cam and scan around the shop for the hidden glasses of water with cherries on top which is why this little hunt is called “Cherries on Top Hunt”.

The 10 glasses are hidden in and around a very pretty and Valentines themed mini “yardsale” but when I say yardsale I don’t mean unwanted Arcade wins all new stuff from a variety of shops but new stuff from a variety of SL designers.

XXXpurpleuseI love any top that can show a bit of skin but in a tasteful way and this top does but for those who blush easily there is also a non sheer version or a rather handy system layer beige Bandeau top which is lovely and handy to have on its own.

XXXpurpleuse2

Again a simple and sweet mesh top.

XXXpurpleuse3

My last find was this stylised jacket.

When you go there you will spot that I used the large Ballroom as my backdrop because I really want to find the rest of the hunt prizes as I know that there are some skirts,  and like shoes you can never have enough skirts, and a few dresses so yet again when I get back inworld I’m starting off in my “last location”.  Plus I also have to confess that I spotted a pair of shoes from the PurpleMoon stall which are so unusual and at only 50Lds I can splash some cash on them and maybe my next post won’t be a freebie but I have NEW Mina hair and I’ll probably have those shoes which will be a nightmare because you all know I struggle to get everything into the same picture LOL.

OK will hopefully show you them later.

PS No hints give but check out just outside the back of the Ballroom cos you might just miss that one.
