Damn I’m sorry!

I got a notice off Laurent83 Waco a few days ago that there was a whole load of Valentines goodies set out plus some New Group Gifts but I only managed to pop over this morning to check them out and I’m kicking myself.

Because time is short for both me and you if you want to make a special effort for someone tonight I’ve cheated and taken the pictures in Laurent’s shop Follow Us.  I’m not going to buy everything I see because I don’t do romance but if you do and like me you’ve either left it to the last minute or are stuck for ideas then can’t do much better than here.

XXXCupids5

OK maybe not that romantic lol a dead cupid would make a great gift for someone who have loved and lost cos they dumped you or in my case I’m a twisted sort of girl so when I LM grab I might just grab Cupid and shove his dead corpse under my bed…I’ve done that before with a dead Nun I also shoved that under Faiths bed once.  Actually if this turns out to be a Trans item you could use it as a way of saying “Ta Ra” to someone you want to dump….just a suggestion LOL.

I’ve always been a fan of Laurents stuff because his stuff is idiot proof and often comes with a cheeky twist.  Lots of things are rezzed fully set up and basically just so good to look at.  So anyone no matter how little skill or time a person has a couple of clicks is all it takes to set up not just a romantic scene but in his shop you have everything you need to fully furnish a whole house/skybox etc

The other thing I’ve always chuckled at was how something can look so innocent at first till you zoom in close.  Take this make up/toiletry box for example.  I already have an older version of this and know that if you touch it the lid opens and closes and it’s only when it’s opened do you realise the contents are a bit more saucy than some lipsticks and face wipes.  I am pretty sure you have a choice between a copy or trans version so a lovely gift for someone.

XXXCupids6

I’m definitely going back for this cheeky chappy.  He’s one of quite a few Gacha wins and they’re all so cute until you realise thats not a bone in his mouth LOL.  Although all of the prices in this shop are reasonable it’s nice to see a range of prices and the little dog is only 29Lds a try and I’m going to keep him in my bedroom.

XXXCupids3

A caged Cupid seems perfect to me LOL.  This poor chap is for sale and you will find him right above the join group sign which I strongly suggest you do.

XXXCupids

This is an update because I not only LM grabbed but I also as I said treated myself to one of the French Bull dogs out of the Gacha, I won the one with the blue pills in his mouth lol, and then I reread my note and the Group gift is actually one of these adorable little doggies with a man/womans best friend in it’s mouth (a condom) and I believe a little sign as well.  The Follow Us group isn’t a Free group but it’s just a token 40Lds to join and if you go inside the main shop Laurent keeps ALL of the old GG’s out to be grabbed plus some seriously discounted items so you get your join fee back in spades.

All the Valentine’s goodies are very handily set out outside the main shop in their own mini shop but if you do join the group to find the rest of the gifts go into the main shop, turn to the door on your right and keep on walking because all of the GG’s are in a separate room but honestly easy to find and of course you can have a good look at what else is there to tempt you.  Although a lot of the items are heavily Valentine’s themed there is no reason not to keep a romantic table setting or flowers etc in your home or invent for future use.

Check out the old bathtub which for the moment is only 99Lds and although I’ve not been able to menu check just looking at the promo piccies there are some eye watering moves in there.

Also check out the Marketplace.  I have to confess I’ve not been able to locate the GG French Dog but I’m so happy with the one I have I might just give it a miss but there is a gorgeous Dollarbie of a heart shaped blackboard surrounded by lights and a total of 33 items priced from 0-11Lds waiting to be grabbed or sent as a gift.

Honestly! (Gifts, Cheapies and New Mina Hair).

OK you’re going to have to put up with a mini rant before I do my post just so I can basically vent and then hopefully feel better for it, but of course you could just scroll by this first bit LOL.  I’m closing my business down in RL, don’t worry I’ve got a new career lined up, but it means lots of stock taking and packing tape.  I’ve just remembered that I’ve forgotten to buy 2 gifts for 2 people I don’t like and who have never liked my gifts but I have no choice but to buy them gifts, families you gotta love em! The icing on the cake is I’ve lost my mousematt which isn’t just a major deal until you are driven crazy by the lack of control of your pointer!

On the good side is that I went over to the Christmas on 34th Street and picked up a shed load of 10Ld goodies.  I’ve mentioned this event previously because everything here is Trans, but of course non copy, which means you don’t have to drag your loved one/friend over then give them the money and tell them what to buy for themselves, it takes the suprise and fun out of it.  There are some big names are here, inc Mina’s as well 🙂 and if you want to pop your pressie into a gift box then you will also notice the “wrapping stations”.  There are at least 2 of them and they’re stalls with Gift Boxes you can buy for 20Lds to pop your pressie in BUT look on the ground and at each Wrapping Station is a pile of 10Ld gifties! Although there is no picture of what they contain when you highlight them you can see whats inside each box and it’s a real good mix of clothes, make up, nails and decor items.  I clicked and grabbed a whole pile of them and so far sooooo happy.

XXXStrop

I’ve used only my sim setting for these pictures but when I cropped this one I relabeled it “Stroppy” which is a bit how I feel this morning LOL.  The dress is the 10Ld offer from Cheeky and I LOVE this style, I have a very similar dress from another fav SL shop but in different texturing.  Check out the folds and pleats etc not a 100% sure but I’m pretty sure that it came in the mesh body sizes but if I’m wrong it also comes with the standard mesh sizing in any case.

XXXStroppy1

Check out my Mug and by “Mug” I mean my face!  I’m going to SHOCK you because it’s a PumeC and I’m not that keen on it! LOL.  Actually what it is is I went over to PumeC with my fingers crossed that there was some new GG’s out but sadly there wasn’t, there was however a Gacha tempting me and so for 100Lds I took a gamble and won “Rose” she has all of the features I love of PumeC but just the 1 skin, so yes that means you get the fully packed applier and even one for a mesh head and I’m not keeping her.  The only reason I’m not keeping her, apart from the fact I have loads of PumeC skins, is because I love to layer on the make up, eyes, cheeks and esp lips but Rose has very lush and plump lips and my tats don’t cover it well enough esp when I take a lot of piccies.  So she has to go and I’ve popped her and the appliers into one of the 20Ld gift boxes set the buy it now price to Zero Lindens.  You may have to click twice on the pie menu to get the buy option but I’m pretty sure I clicked all the right boxes to set it for sale.

XXXStroppy4

Thats one of the 20Ld boxes I picked up from the Christmas on 34th st event and I’ve packed “Rose” into there but the lovely and low primmed snowman and angel are gifts off Faith.  I don’t know if she has noticed but I’ve got the snowman at the foot of my house but the angel is right on the top of my house and if you check my previous post about the KIDD gift you will see the angel.

XXXStroppy2

Last picture and it’s a wild one.  A new shop to me but this is a classic case of putting out a gift/discounted item can win you new clients because as soon as I rezzed this wild sparkling cloud I TPed straight over to the E.V.E shop and bought a field of amazingly ethereal and undulating mushrooms.  This cloud is BIG but still only 12 prims and it does come in 2 parts so you can just rezz half of it or even the smaller version.  Yup 2 sizes in the back this large one and a much smaller one which has the same amount of prims BUT is perfect for those with a much smaller parcel of land and only 10Lds!

Special mention to the Reindeer Decor item from…sparkly and perfect and a single prim so perfect for decorating your sim or home I didn’t take a picture of it because by that stage my slipping pointer was driving me mad.  I also forgot to unpack the Mina hair, I did say that there are some really good stuff in that pile of 10Lds gifts waiting for you.

PS I have been inspired so fluffy dice for one relative who loves his car and a tiara for the friggen Princess….Xmas Sorted!

Last minute PANIC!!!!

I just couldn’t help myself but grab these GG’s before they’re gone.  If you don’t even need any more Christmas items I’d still recommend you go grab these because I’ve still got some of last years Christmas Decor items set out because Follow Us quality stands the test of time.

follow us

A simple tray with mugs n cookies and that tree shaped tray is a lovely touch.  Only 5 prims as well and of course FREE but the Group isn’t free.  However the cost of joining the Follow Us group is only a token 40Lds which is nothing esp since Laurent not only puts out regular monthly group gifts but keep them all out for anyone no matter how late they join the group to grab.  The normal Group Gifts are in the main shop but the Christmas Gifties are in the Christmas house on your right when you TP in, look on the wall behind the staircase.

Something I also don’t point out often enough is when you’re a member you actually get a lot of monthly offers and discounts as well as the regular monthly gift so you can see why I say that the joining fee is just a mere token.  If you get tempted into buying any last-minute Deccies or gifts make sure to be wearing your Group Tag as you will get a 20% discount but only on the Christmas Decor items.

followus1

This tree is another of the Christmas GG’s. You get 2 and this is the larger version with a smaller one in the pack.  Not sure I’m going to keep it out mainly because I still have this beauty out.

treee

Yup although it’s an old piccie that lovely subtly lit tree is in my home, it’s not free but zoom in on the lovely sledge with the pressies on top.  Yup another GG and only 4 prims for that one!

Now for the “PANIC” bit but you don’t really need to.  Unlike a lot of places esp on Laurents Marketplace the items are TRANS:-).  Obviously non copy but this way you can either buy in shop and send or simply send as a Gift through the Marketplace.  He has 35 items priced between 0-10Lds and 177 items priced between 11-100Lds and there are some amazing things for both sexes, from sewing machines to desks, coffee, fruit baskets, clothes stands, garden decor, fully laden tables, party items and on and on …..and something for everyone’s pocket.

Concrete is back.

Most surprised when a notice came through from a shop which seemed to have closed down such a long time ago but now due to people’s requests Concrete Flowers is back.  Albeit in a smaller form but some of the classics are there.

Cake1

Most of the fun items are just 25Lds and best of all they are also trans which means if you know someone in world who is a bit naughty a bit cheeky then the perfect pressie is here for them.  Some of them are very rude like the dropped soap pose or the sandbox with a unusual “erect” build on it, lots of faiths faves ie wearbles etc.  I love the idea of sending someone a “stinky sock” as a Christmas pressie LOL.  I just picked up this case which comes with the simple small wearable one and of course the larger one with poses.

Cake2

As I’ve said most of the “fun” items are just priced at 25Lds and Trans but there is also as selection of jewelry and also some really great rugs, sadly none rezzed for you to check out first but I have some and they’re definitely worth the 77Lds.  Great texturing and some come with those natural looking trip inducing wrinkles LOL.

sky

This isn’t 25Lds or even 77lds but just 49.  This is the view from outside looking in and I’ve shown myself so you can get some idea of the sizing.  The snow is on the outside only and it’s lovely.

sky2

Inside out and I’ve taken all photos in my Nams setting.

sky4

Although it’s a large single cube the shelving and curtains break that up.  This cost 49lds and is only 27prims.

And right in the middle of all of this the Follow Us Christmas tree in all it’s glory:-)
