Hello Tuesday #23

leave a comment »

Another ‘Hello Tuesday’ event on the Cosmopolitan sim, with lots of gorgeous bargains for all :) The vendors are outside the actual stores, not the Sale Room itself so walk around and check them all out.

Here’s some of the Menswear. [G i o M E N] have this fab zip up cardigan in grey for only L$50. Can’t be bad! It’s offered in the standard 5 sizes XS to XL with an excellent alpha and you can wear it oversized or natural depending on mood. I’ll use this a lot I’m sure.

Munereia’s bargain is the ‘Tranquility’ set of casual top and trousers. The set comes with various alphas so if you’re wearing the two pieces you’ll only need the one alpha for the lot. There’s a HUD which gives choices as to the side textures and shading on both the top and the trousers.  You can dress this set up or down with various shoes/deck shoes/sneakers. Very nice :)

I just had to get this for my porch! [RnB Designs Furniture] ‘Perching Robins’ come in at 7 land impact and a whole lot of options. They sing in adjustable volumes, on/off, you can put them on all the time or set  day or night, either loop the sounds or have them sing every now and then. Extreme cuteness for a mere L$50!

I’ve blogged a variety of these beds from Storax Tree before. They are extremely detailed and well textured so I included a close-up. The  ‘Nature’s Bliss Napa Valley Bed’ totals 25 land impact and has masses of texture options in toning colours. There are around 20 PG poses for singles, couples and trio – some of which are most amusing – complete with wine bottles and even a blanket to throw over the unconscious. Brilliant!  Two varieties as follows…

And the close-up. Somehow, a robin has got in here as well!

That’s all for today. Cheers, m’dears :)

V-spot – Ol’ Timer jacket

with 2 comments

This is V-spot’s latest vintage  jacket to celebrate the newest issue of
L’HOMME Magazine, in which it is featured as an exclusive!  A cool looking knit jacket, Ol’ Timer is available at the mainstore only. Colorways are … Black, Brown, Navy, Red and Grey.  You could wear this with or without a t-shirt underneath, sizing is the usual XS to XL with alpha and I was wearing the size L just to make it look oversized as I remember these jackets used to be :) You could easily go down a size, though, and get another look altogether. If you’re a member of the V-Spot Male Fashion Group you can get the Ol’ Timer jacket for 30% discount.  Great vintage styling, thanks VerTig0!

Close up, you’ll see all the details, this guy is a texture artist of the highest order and you can get these at a bargain price. The shorts come in the standard mesh sizing – XS to XL with a good alpha. I’m wearing the L size but under tops, it’ll be a size down so don’t forget to put that in your inventory along with your usual size when you unpack.

Cosmopolitan Sale Room – decor for home and garden

leave a comment »

The next round of the Cosmopolitan Sale Room is now open and there’s a whole fortnight to browse and buy! This post is all about the home & garden designers and there are many fine items at bargain prices.

Decor Junction – at a really amazing 3 land impact, the Outdoor Bench is offered in two colorways… wood and white wood. There are six ‘sit’ animations in total, 3 male, 3 female with adjust facility. Pure, stylish and low impact – great stuff.

Decor Junction again – the Mesh Crate Shelf is offered in a choice of two woods – light and dark and comes in at 9 land impact. Considering what is on the crates in the way of dishes, pots, candles and even a fruit bowl – that’s low impact, high style.

Decor Junction - crate shelf light

Shutter Field – I loved this! It’s a Mini Garden featuring shrubs  and is a mere 7 land impact. It would so add to a garden as a feature don’t you think? Yes! Buy one!

Shutter Field – the Summer Garden Bench in light wood colour.  There’s a lot here for 4 land impact. It has texture change cushions with 5 nice print options, 13 mixed animations for singles plus 7 couples poses with ‘swap’ and adjustments. This looks good in all lights.

Storax Tree – features five versions of the Collector Plate Table Top Display for 2 land impact each. Looks like the start of a collection here! I’m bagging the cat one first :)

V-Spot – Blue days & blue jeans

leave a comment »

If you’ve ever fancied a pair of quality designer jeans with suspenders/braces and all those important texturing details, then check out V-spot’s latest creation. These fab jeans come in 6 options – base colour and toning or contrast stitching details – blue on blue, blue on black, red on blue, red on black, black on blue and black on black.  They come in the standard mesh sizes – XS – XL, I was wearing the black on blue in size L. Really love these! Now in the new mainstore, they are also available on Marketplace.

V-spot is taking part in Depraved Nation’s “The Blues” male hunt, one of the 50 stores in that line-up and well worth looking into. The hunt item is the ‘Blue Days Open-necked shirt’, a vintage style which is as good now as it was way back when! What’s more, if you can find it in the new V-spot mainstore, it’ll only cost you 5 lindens. Can’t be bad :)

That’s all for now, so…

Cosmo – menswear 1

leave a comment »

Such a lot of good stuff in the latest round of the Cosmopolitan Sale Room! On from now until 2nd August so plenty of time to browse through those bargains :)  My goodness, the links are working today, well done WordPress lol

Another fantastic offer from GIOmen so I’ve gone all smart for this post. This rounds item is the HUD-Driven Formal Shirts & Tie in black  with/without tie clip and 10 plain/print tie options via the HUD. I wore the L size comfortably. This would be a very useful black shirt in anyone’s inventory, especially with all those tie options.

It’s the first time EMO-tions have shown at Cosmo but I bet it won’t be the last. I was very impressed with this new men’s hair – Peter. It comes with a  HUD which gives a generous 20 colour tones, PLUS an additional 20 faded tones and a foolproof resizer. The hairbase is very natural, too, and one of the best I’ve seen in a long time. I used the dark brown faded tone and was really pleased with it. Thanks, Mirja!

More on this round to come…

Until then, cheers m’dears :)
