Results of a poll

I ran a poll last week, asking "When you go to a store to pick up the freebie, do you buy items as well?"

I was a little worried about asking this, since the current belief is that freebie hunters don't spend money, but I really wanted to know. Imagine my relief to discover that a resounding 90% of you do actually buy while you're freebie hunting! And I'm sure that the 10% of you who do not probably have issues getting money into SL, or some other justifiable reason why you don't. No judgments here.

Something I mentioned a few days ago is the Designers Showcase Network. If you haven't signed up yet...WHY NOT?

What DSN is - is a way for content creators to get samples of their products directly in front of your face. They're delivered overnight - it's like Christmas morning every day, when I sign on and get all these goodies delivered straight to my inventory! The network has been growing by leaps and bounds and currently has 70 different creators on board...in just the 10 days the system has been active. Run over to the Mall at Cherry Park and sign up today!

End of an Era

I am not sure how many of you have heard or seen this but apparently the up coming changes to the Adult content part of SL was the straw that broke the camel's back for one great designer of fetish items, Darien Caldwell owner and creator of Dari's Haus, has shut down and released all her items into the public domain, So if that type of thing interests you, go get her items, they are great! This was posted on her blog yesterday:

End of the Road
Written by Darien Caldwell
Tuesday, 12 May 2009 17:18

I know i've said this before, but this time it's absolute. I'm closing Dari's Haus.

The true reason behind LL's adult changes has come to light.


Now that the government is stepping in, I'm stepping out. This has become far too much. Much more than I ever signed on for. Attached is all of my items which I hold the rights to, full perms, Public Domain.

I do this so those who bought items can ensure they aren't lost to the numerous bugs which plague SL. There are a number of collar designs which I do not hold rights to, I can not give those out full perms. however, The BOxed collar loader is included so that anyone can load in scripts should something occur. As well, people can work toward improving the system after I'm gone. The items will also always be available here, on the plot many know well. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Yurim/235/87/31

There are also unreleased designs in the box, things I never got to finish, Enjoy.

P.S. The items will also be available at this 3rd party location. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Aneslasleja/62/58/2

Please Don't IM me, trying to change my mind. It's done, and over. I am not happy about this, but my own personal life and liberty trump Second Life. that's just how it has to be. I really enjoyed my years here, but I am sorry to say this must come to a close. Everyone enjoy your SL. and Goodbye.

This is a blow to SL as a major designer has packed up. Let's hope that this isn't a sign of things to come.

Oh and to my fellow blogger, Savvy, I am trying to finish the Keys hunt and as soon as I do I'll post the great mens stuff I find.

Until then Cya all on the Flip Side

Lemania Hunt Prizes & Stuff

Lemania's retiring dollarbie of the day is "Persimmons". It will be available only until 9am tomorrow, so don't delay.

Persimmons leaves are often pale, slightly yellowish green in youth, turning a dark, glossy green as they age, and under mild autumn conditions the leaves often turn dramatic shades of yellow, orange and red, and its those colors that this dress is fashioned after.

*** On to the May Hunt Prizes ***

This is perfect for me .... Denim!

If you've ever seen me out early morning weekend shopping, chances are you'll find me in denim shorts, and a tank or tee. Of all the clothes that I have, these suit my personality best. They are my comfy clothes of choice, so when I grabbed this up in the Lemania Hunt, I was so excited.

The shoes are called Denim Dream, and can be picked up from May Flower # 13, while the matching outfit is called Rawhide, and can be found in May Flower # 14.

This could very well be, my new Saturday morning shopping attire!

Mystify is another great gown prize, this gem can be located in May Flower # 11.

As you can see, the bodice is adorned with emerald green jewels a black applique, as well as lace detail on the sleeves.

Won't you be the belle at the ball while wearing this vibrantly colored yellow gown!

This golden yellow beauty is perfect for those romantic summer nights dancing on the terrace, hurry over to find May Flower # 12 for your "Sunshine" dress.

Speaking of romance, this pretty pastel pink, dress reminds me of a fragrant, summer, rose garden, and is appropriately named "Mother's Roses".

Your copy of this dress, and matching shoes can be found in Flowers # 18 & 19.

Boxes 15 & 16 contain something a bit more unusual. This outfit, and skin combo will make an unique addition to any closet. This, is "Springtime on Mars."

These Martians really know how to do it up right!!

I have more of these goodies to show you later, but this just in ....

More shoes!! SCORE!!!

Thank you to Evangeline Eames for providing these delicious red stilettos. You can pick them up courtesy of Vixen at The Dominion Fashion District in the usual "freebie" location.

That's all I have for you tonight.

At the French Farm, you will find 3 skins to compliment the outfit, also inspired by the movie.

They come with different lip colors, to suit your mood. Shown above is the red lipstick, with light pink and dark pink being your alternate choices!

Have you ever asked yourself, "Is it Love?"
