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.


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.


Again a simple and sweet mesh top.


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.

Gettin’ Swanky (oodles of Freebies).

I found this event called Swank last night and quickly dropped Faith a note this to say it’s MINE ALL MINE but I’m going to drop her a note this morning to tell her to get over and grab this first outfit because even with our overstuffed invents this is such a great find.


The outfit gets 10 out 10 from me.  The top and pants are separates and not only is the texturing 100% shop quality you also get a really BIG Hud which allows you to change the pants, belt and top.  Honestly I’m so pleased with this amazing freebie I had to come in from sunning myself in the garden just to post/brag about it.


I did a quick colour change to show you but this close up is also of the bag and make up, again freebies.  It’s not often I bother to show off free bags but this one has such a lovely gold colour it’s pretty noticeable and there is also another bag which didn’t match any of the outfits I tried on but it too is definitely grab worthy.  There was 2 lots of make up the first a nice simple lash tattoo layer and this one which is a full faced one.


To grab all of these goodies you do have to join the Swank group but that’s free.  I’ve not unpacked everything but I’m pretty sure that 3 of the items are for men and they look just the same quality so drag your OH there.


Last but not least and quite a different style from the rest, that top with the collar has a retro 60ties look to it.

Not going to give you which shops they come from, this is a small shopping arcade and each window has a gift in it and since I’ve not grabbed everything and I’m not showing you everything I’d hate for you to miss a goody so go over there have a look at the clothes for sale in the windows and also grab a load of goodies and then spend a lovely time unpacking and trying on.

PS Special mention for the cigarette holder, very long and stylish so if you’re an SLsmoker worth picking up.

Update for Faith, the great trousers and top are found on the LaVian&Co window.

Too much fun and a whole load of bargain bin stuff.

I logged back into the SLMarketplace for a bit of rummaging and I was shocked to come across The Sea Hole!  A lot of SL old timers will recognise this name as it was a BIG shop in SL but the owner decided to shut down many, MANY years ago but before she did she slashed the prices and people went bat shit crazy.  You could not move for people clicking away like mad.  This stuff was so nice I STILL have a couple of pieces in my invent.

There is a total of 246 items priced between 1-10Lds and 280 between 11Ld and 100Ld so many things so I basically loaded 10 items into my basket paid for them and logged out.

This home cost me only a single Linden and it’s packed with unique character.


A completely retro tailor.  Although I’m showing paid for items I’m going to picture edit because just like the items I picked up it’s fun to do LOL but you can see the actual colours for everything on the Marketplace pictures.


It’s a big and oversized build but that’s in keeping with its character.


It has an open plan, bedroom, livingroom and kitchen.  As far as I can tell the only pose in it is a simple lounging one on the bed.  This is primmy, sorry I can’t remember the exact count but it was just under the 140 mark.  But as I said this is a unique build, I know that a lot of people like to make their SL homes like perfect reality but then there are those who like to be a bit out there and this is it.  If I found this house in SL I would click on it to find out who made it because it’s refreshing to come across something with a bit more “oomph” to it.

The outfit is another one of Drinkinstein Sorbet’s creation.  If I remember correctly The Sea Hole closed it’s doors not long after mesh appeared on the scene but it’s non mesh and sculpted clothes still stand the test of time and again if you’re not a Mesh Head then this is a great place to get some new clothes and again since everything is so cheap, this dress cost 15Lds, you can really splurge.  Plenty of colour choices as well.

Check out my second home.


Again another big and primmy home and again I’ve forgotten the prim count but I think …OH I’ve checked and it’s 223 but for all of those prims you get a big house fully furnished and with the same “oomph” as the first home but this one called “Fall Comfort House” is warm and woody, I’ve not put many of the pictures in this post but like the first house some really nice touches such as the hanging bed.  Primmy for sure but definitely designed for those who like to stand out.


I ran out of space in my basket for a top so I just used one of mine but the skirts is a Sea Hole one which means even though that texturing is as smooth as a babies bum this is a prim skirt.


So many things in this Marketplace shop from clothes to full builds and little itty bits and although there are some items at 50Lds most seem to be priced between 1-30Lds.

Refusing to smile. (Freebie n Cheapie).

RL is still pretty wet n miserable, I hoovered the stairs, ate some of the pea pods off my plants, checked my eBay listings, texted a friend and then came back inworld and scored!

OK firstly the non Free but at 30Lds a bargain.


I actually spotted this dress as soon as I entered B&C Design shop but I went and grabbed the Freebies first.  Then I double backed and decided to price check this dress and at 30Lds I snapped it up.  As well as always being on the lookout for freebies I’m also looking for new or different textures and this certainly has an unusual texture its bright and bold without being garish.  I think this was cheap because it was maybe a previous Valentine offer, there is 2 other same styled dress but with different textures to choose from as well.

Now for a couple of the Freebies.


This has that t-shirt sort of texturing and although I’m not showing you the back it has some nice detailing on the strap but I would recommend you don’t forget to wear panties or a bikini because although from the front it looks dress length behind it flashes a lot of bottom LOL.  As it happens you couldn’t go wrong in picking up the next freebie.


A sweet and simple system layer bikini, it does come with a sarong style bottom which is prim rather than mesh and tbh counteract against the sweetness of the bikini.

There are some other Freebie items but I’ll leave them as a surprise.  I don’t think the LM will take you directly to the GG’s so when you rezz it’s the entrance on the right you want to go in and the 30Ld offer is in the first part of the shop and the GG’s are in the next room at the back.  It’s ok it’s not a vast shop and half of it is for babies and stuff and the other half is women’s fashions so it’s not hard to work out which is which.

Bye for now cos I’m back on the Freebie Hunt.
