My SL Freebie & Gift Challenge.

This week my friend Meri did a 100L challenge on her blog (HERE) and it’s been an inspiration! I also spotted my friend IsaBelle do a similar post HERE, so that was it….I had a little think about what could I do along a similar vein (yep I jumped on the bandwagon!)

Firstly, there are an incredible number of generous Designers – thank you. There is also a glut of gifts (and very cheap deals) on Marketplace. Group gifts abound and there are still many lucky chairs and Midnight Mania boards in use. Don’t forget Hunts too, which are a great way of discovering new stores – see my Caspervend Hunt post HERE.

One thing I learned about this challenge is the number of stores that have their join fee set to 0L and have brilliant gifts available. Even where one store has a “higher” join fee (and how do you define ‘higher’), I counter that by pointing out they have 8 group gifts available at the moment; the combined value taking you well over the join fee. As with all things in SL, it always depends how much you want to spend on your avatar. I just hope between Meri, Isa and myself, we’ve illustrated that you can look awesome in SL without spending a fortune.

Happy shopping ❤

Pixels and Stripes

While we’re only partway through the month, there are lots of events on to spoil you with. I’ve had fun exploring and seeing what’s out there at the moment. Evil Bunny Productions are very active each month with at least 2-3 events on the go. The Gacha Life and TWE12VE are in full swing until the end of the month and designers are very generous with their gifts at these events too, so well worth checking out.

Shiny Shabby starts today and I’m loving how cheeky, yet feminine my outfit is. The huds that are provided leave you spoiled for choice, so if you’re a Maitreya girl check it out. My pixelated lipstick is currently available at eBENTO and the colour choices in the hud are statement pieces. I thought the blue would contrast well against my background, which is a gacha item from The Bearded Guy. My pose, which is available at The Darkness Monthly Event, also shows off my jewellery and nails quite perfectly, which is fab. All in all, I’m set up for the weekend. I hope you are too. Enjoy ❤
