Inventory Woes, Take 2!

When I started this project I had this brilliant idea that I would blog an outfit or an item and then move it to it's designated folder and that's how I would be able to organize my inventory and know which items I've blogged about and which I haven't.

Unfortunately I've been getting new things at a much faster rate than I've been blogging, so I'm trying really hard to catch up by batching photo sessions and queuing up some posts. Let's see how successful I am with this plan!

Back to Work

So now that I have my land and home back, I have to re-build it all, which always feels like so much more work the second time around.  And most importantly, I need to get back to updating this blog.

So hello! How are you, three or four people actually reading this?

[What I'm Wearing:] Grace dress by 1 Hundred. - from the Free Dove || Rima - Natural Tones by Fabia - Free Dove

I Got a Bed (Again!)

ProTip: If you know you're not going to be able to pay rent, take up all your stuff so you don't lose all your no copy items. So many gacha items GONE FOREVER because I'm a dum dum.

One of those items was that tarte. bed that I loved so much, so after an appropriate period of whining and shouting profanities about my own idiocy, I took to the Marketplace to search for a replacement, and I'm actually quite happy with this one.

What I'm Wearing:
Brisa Tank Top by Suki - L$ on MP || Destroyed Jeans by Beautiful Dirty Rich - Group Gift || Well-Loved Hiking Boots by Duh! - Free Dove || Danyelle Hair by the Alice Project

I got a bed!

I've been kind of quiet on here, because of a project I'm working on, but I just wanted to share how excited I am about this freakin' bed. I went down to tarte. to check out beds, and while I was there, on a whim I tried my hand at the manhattan collection gacha machine and got the manhattan bed! On my first try yall!

I'm also just in love with this hair! It was a the free gift from little bones. at Hair Fair. My top and sandals were both gifts in the Beached Bunny Hunt 6, from prime.and Fashioncentric respectively. My jeans are a group gift from Beautiful Dirty Rich. 

Coming soon: I reveal the project I've been working on that has distracted me so much from blogging!

Inventory Woes

My current favorite thing about my new mesh head is I can use it to express my frustration with the abysmal state of my Inventory. I went on a pretty neat hunt, but throwing all that new stuff in my already unorganized Inventory has proven to be a mistake. I was hoping to get some shots of some of the really great stuff from that hunt before the thing is over, so I better get some serious organization done real soon!

I have no self control.

Remember when I was like "I'm gonna buy hands and feet because that's totally worth it" but wasn't planning to do much more than that because the whole point of this blog was to be showing how to spend the least money possible?

Yeah, about that.

The natural progression from just getting hands and feet to also deciding fuck it Ill go ahead and get a body too, just to make things easier, thats forgiveable. But then I went and got myself a dang mesh head.

I've been curious about them for a long time now, but I never bought one on my other account because I've had her for aaages and I've spent a long time on her face and I cant just go and pick any random head. (But as more and more become available, I think I'm getting closer to finding on for her.)

But for this account, which I was never so attached to, I just got to play around trying on a bunch of different demo heads and read a few blog posts and try on some more demos until I found one I liked enough to buy: Helena, by Catwa. You can find a full breakdown on the Basics page.

Also I bought another house from tarte because I have a fucking tarte problem, ya'll.

Beautiful Dirty Jona

I am just loving this rigged mesh hair by EMO-tions that I found at The Free Dove. It's called "Jona" and comes with a HUD to control resizing, and the 4 solid-color options, (golden brown, autumn, chocolate, and darkbrown) as well as 4 two-tone options.

 Just when I was trying to decide if I liked the goldenbrown, or the darkbrown best, I found the both in one and was a very happy panda. I love the bright going into dark. It's a much prettier version of what I've got IRL!

I'm also wearing the "It's Getting Cold Outside" sweater and Destroyed Jeans by Beautiful Dirty Rich, both of which were free group gifts. They both also come in Classic Avatar clothing layers and appliers for Slink, Maitreya, The Mesh Project, Omega, and Phat Azz.

Yöllä, Alice, Vista, Oh My!

Remember my de-noobifying post, where I mentioned I grabbed the first free undies I could find, just so I could take pictures of said denoobifying without flashin' my virtual bits? Well, have a better look at the set, in all five colors!

This set by Yöllä is available FREE on MP. The poses you see are just part of my AO, from Vista Animations, which you can find on MP for only L$1. My hair is "Indigo" from The Alice Project, which I won from a Midnight Mania board. Still not satisfied with my face, so I need to keep working on that.

Ydea Style Free Dove Mini Hunt.

Totally forgot to post these before I went and tweaked my face and picked up that free townhouse! Ydea Style had a mini hunt at The Free Dove. 

Gift 1: "Shine Pink" - I love this top. 

Gift 2: "Spider Orange" - I'm not a fan of skirt prims, so I don't know if I'll keep this.

Gift 3: "Roma" dress in Red. Love this!

Gift 4: "Gioia Mini Dress" with color change HUD.
Gift 5: "Beatrice" Haven't decided how I feel about the dalmatian print. 
Gift 6: "Gaia Summer Dress" with color change HUD - missed this one in the original photo sesh.

Modern Home, Vintage Touch

Sometimes, I wander aimlessly around the Marketplace, just browsing for nothing in particular. I happened upon this neat little house by .lame. "Kyle's Modern Townhouse" is 100% mesh, only 19 prims, and is totally FREE. It doesn't have a door, which is a bit weird, but it's cute and the two levels make a perfect separation for the photo studio and the living area. 

And in that living area, is now this adorable chaise lounge, a free group gift from The Vintage Touch. And speaking of The Vintage Touch, check out these dresses! They were all free gifts found in a mini-hunt at The Free Dove. Also included in the hunt were several pairs of sandals that I can't wear until I finally break and go buy some Slink feet. Which I'm definitely going to do eventually. I know the point of this blog is to show off stuff I get for free or nearly free, but when it comes to shoes, it's worth it to invest in feet, because over half the free shoes I've found are for Slink feet. 

My hair here was also free; "Namie" was a gift for the group SL Frees & Offers by The Alice Project. 

Positive Vibes

I love getting a complete outfit for one low price, especially when that low price is FREE! This set by Somnia is available at The Free Dove. The shoes and sweater also come with color change HUDs if pink isn't your color, or you don't want to be quite as matchy.

My first furniture!

For only L$1, I picked up this neat little breakfast set from Bazar. Also, sitting on my table is a jar of LGBT Pride by The Vintage Touch.

De-noob-ifying for zero lindens.

Step1: acquire free undies so as to take pictures without flashing bits all over the place.

Step2: Use "Daria" shape from The Free Dove, but decide not to use the skin that came with it.

Step3: Use Anna skin from the Free Dove. Bonus points to this skin for having appliers for Slink hands and feet, which will come in handy for that inevitable future purchase.

Step4: Wear this cute hair, and cuter outfit by Sweet Tea Couture, from the Free Dove

Home Base.

The closest I'll ever be to Stanford

When I logged back into this account for the first time in aaaages my avatar looked so bad that I had to revert to one of the default avies, but actually, this one, called Carla, is actually pretty cute. So after a bit of random wandering about, I went to work.

If I was going to do this blogging thing right, I needed to have myself a home base, so I found a darling little sky dome with changeable scenery, and 200 prims for L$400/wk If I manage to acquire a fair amount of home goods, I may upgrade to a box with a higher prim allowance, but for now it's more than enough.

On that little plot of land, I placed an adorable little house from tarte. It's not much to look at from the outside, since it's meant to just be a sky box, but look how stinkin' cute it is inside!

The Little Skyboxis only 10 prims, so it's perfect for anyone on a prim budget! Then, I, like every sl-blogging newb, grabbed the (free!) Simple Photo Studio, (and enlarged the house a little to make sure there was plenty of room for the sudio) and then I was ready to rock and roll!
