I told you I’d not use that backdrop again lol but as it happens when I had popped over to Junbug to see if it still had its FLF offer out, it does but I wasn’t tempted this time, I couldn’t but help admire the sim setting so once I’d grabbed this 30Ld Saturday offer I decided to just use the shop as a backdrop.
Because of the sim setting I had to use a body light and then I edited the piccie BUT this is well worth 30Lds and more. It is slightly let down by that raw edge look to the hem but the texturing and quality of the exaggerated collar and sleeves are pure Junbug and for the asking price a great way for people on a budget to get their AV paws on a piece of Junbug.
PS because of the balloon bottom knickers must be worn at all time lol but of course this coat over socks, leggings, even a pencil skirt will look even better.
I went to Grace Island again, I like to relax there when sorting my inventory or writing up a blog post.
I took two pictures and was going to just post them but then I thought about showing more detail. Some folk in SL (like me) shop on a budget and others just love a bargain. We still want nice things but we have to think about what we are spending. I wanted to show you some staples that are good to keep in your inventory. These shoes are from a store called Slipper. You can buy singles but look at the hud with the fatpack. There is nothing these would now match.
This fun bed to rest on its brilliant too. If you own a sim or have a home space it would be a lovely add. For those like me who don’t have land, there are many sims that at a small cost you can rest things for a time to take pictures. Grace Island is one of them and so I can rez this item out when I need it. Again this has cool colour combos depending on the mood. Little Llama is a fun store that looks like a kids place at first but, loads of the stuff can be sized to suit adults too. So you see, being is SL doesn’t have to cost loads to enjoy it.

Following from the blog post before, here are some more great places to shop for bargains. Nya’s stuff comes in a hud loaded with colours. Stuff like this is fantastic to mix and match with other stores too and create your own personal look. Another store I love is Veechi. They are brilliant for eye make-up and nails. Oh and you see the sweet necklace I have one ? its from Flippant. .

I got a New RL bread maker last night so today I have made 2 loaves, 1 cake and a pan of Jam, or as you Yanks say “jelly”, and since the sun has struggled out from behind the clouds I’ve been lazing like a Lady of Leisure in my garden feeding my fat face. It goes without saying I’ve eaten too much bread and cake and now I feel bloated and sad!
I’ve mentioned the 25Ld Tues offers before, just sub to one of the shops involved in it and you should get sent out a note with the LM’s and shops involved in that weeks 25Ld Tue offer. Most of the shops involved are more towards the RP/Rustic/Gor/Medieval SLers BUT do NOT let that put you off if this isn’t your thing. I’ve found some excellent decor items for my sim and home and occasionally an outfit which I couldn’t resist.
I have to admit that once I get my hands on the list I quickly scan it to see if my Fav shops are in the list and this week DD (Dysfuntionality Design) were on the list so that was my first place to TP over to and check out these low primed pretty floating Chinese lanterns.
You get the 5 colours shown, copyable and only 1 prim each so you can rezz as many of these as you wish.
Super simple menu with them just rezz on the ground click on it and you get 2 tabs the first is to choose how wide or how close you want the lantern to float to where you rezz it and the other to activate it and once you click that it just floats away. Being able to choose to keep it in a restrictive area means you can rezz these even on a small plot and of course again you can rezz just the single lantern or as many as you wish.
If you’ve never been to DD (Dysfunctionality Designs) then you must go, I’m pretty sure there is some decor freebies there but it’s been a long time since I’ve checked, but go for the fruit n veg because you will find some of the best, realistic and low primed fruit n veg planting you will find in SL. Very reasonably priced as well esp for such exc quality.
How good is this! I know that there is a quick redelivery system here at DD but as I was LM grabbing, it doesn’t take you direct to the 25Ld offer but look on the ground and there are signs that lead you right to it, but I also decided to splash out and I’ve bought some grasses, bunnie rabbits and other items for our sim inc a stunning rose-bush which comes with a colour hud etc but I’d forgotten I’d already bought it so I paid my 125Lds which is shockingly cheap for such quality and I got it returned to me! Took me a second to realise, and check my invent, that I already own these roses and so it wouldn’t let me buy something I already own! How good is that!
