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 ❤

Some days Wynn just didn’t give a flying f**k and today was one of them. Walking purposely to the vending machine, all she could think about was how good the chocolate was going to taste in her mouth. Fitting into her shorts in the morning, well that was a challenge for the next day.

While it’s sunny August in my rl today, my mind is already wandering to cooler days and the chance to wrap up in my beloved knits. Whimsical is now open and the theme this round is “Autumn”. Grabbing the latest release from *LX*, I’ve spent some time in the Yorkshire sim today enjoying some photograph opportunities. If you do get a chance to explore Yorkshire, I do recommend it. Enjoy your day, wherever you are x

Yorkshire

As much as I enjoy setting up scenes on my own land, one thing I really love about blogging is discovering new locations inworld for photographs. The Yorkshire sim is now firmly in my fave landmarks list because put simply, the colours schemes when you visit are just beautiful. I really enjoyed playing with windlights and projectors to capture the shadows in this shot and I hope you enjoy it too. Also, please take the chance to explore the location – you won’t be disappointed.
