Fraternizing at V-Spot!

leave a comment »

V-Spot’s latest release is the cool ‘Frat Boy’ shirt and it’s available in 6 colours – black, grey, red, blue, sand and green.  All in the standard sizes XS-XL with a well executed alpha as usual. I was wavering between a medium and a large size and it would depend on the type of pants you wore with this shirt.

Usually priced at L$139, you can get it now for only L$98 (30% off) until September 1st by joining the V-Spot group.  Ready now at V-Spot mainstore and on Marketplace sometime next week.

Cosmopolitan Sale Room – Deco items #20

leave a comment »

Good morning, readers! The latest round of Cosmopolitan Sale Room is still on until Sunday 31st August and there’s plenty of variety in the decor offers.  Here’s my three designers of choice.

The cutest of pastel tables from BananaN. You get two varieties in the set – a 4 land impact table with accessories and books, and a table with books only for 2 land impact. The tables have texture change with a choice of three woods. You could slot these in easily to most beach homes or New England style houses. Beautifully done :)

BananaN tables

Storax Tree have these Rustic Wood Planters with tulips for only 3 land impact each. There’s a choice of tulip colour – variegated mauve, mauve, purple, blue and variegated light blue.

N4RS have this 1930s Nouveau Art Seating Set. Textured so it’s showing a few signs of wear and tear but is still an elegant, classic piece to grace your entrance, hallway, or empty wall – even an outdoor terrace.

Nouveau Art Sofa with 3 Female, 4 Male and 3 Couple seats – 3 LI
Nouveau Art Side Table – 1 LI
Nouveau Art Drago Egg – 1 LI
Nouveau Art Wall Art – 1 LI
Nouveau Art Kelim Rug – 2 LI

So amazingly low land impact for the entire set! It’s copy and modify and you can change the pillow face colour in edit mode.

Until next time,

Hello Tuesday #24

leave a comment »

Another ‘Hello Tuesday’ and this year is passing so quickly! I really like this event with its varied and excellent bargains.  I chose two to show you this time…

First up is from Ashmoot and here’s the direct slurl  This fun top and shorts are both priced at L$50 each and the time of the offer is on from
26/08/14 ——>31/08/14 so if you miss them today, they’ll be there until Sunday.

And second, the cutest of items from Storax Tree. These are the ‘Napa Valley’ nightstands (and yes, they’ll match the beds from the same range). Priced at L$50 each, the direct slurl is here. One features a tiny mouse investigating an empty bottle and the other has a stylish vase and bonsai tree on the table top. Why not get both of them? They are transfer with a resizer.

Lots of other bargains, too, so have a good wander around :) That’s all for now so… Cheers, m’dears!

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.

[G i o M E N] gray zip up

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…

Napa Valley bed S

Napa Valley bed Q

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.

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.
