Day 96 – A true hump day happiness

I’ll fully admit that sometimes I’m a “plurk first, think later” type of person. Almost all of my friends are on plurk, so it’s just natural for me to rush over there when I’m sad or happy or whatever and bang out what’s going on.

Last night after the trivia party, I decided to check out 69L Hump Day Happiness. I love sales, but like a lot of people, I get tired of all these daily sales. Even worse, I am starting to not find anything I like at all. So when I DO see something in the notecards that is actually cute, and knowing it’s on sale too?? Well, I cannot run over fast enough!

Last night I saw some really cute shoes in the notecard from Adam & Eve. I skipped over happily to go buy them, because when can you really buy super cute shoes for less than $300L these days? Heck, if you can get them for under $500L, that’s almost too good to be true. At $69L, I was excited!!

But then, not so excited when I got there and they were $269L. What the heck? It’s $69L Hump Day Happiness, this does not make me happy! So I ran to plurk to whine. Yes, whine. It’s not that I didn’t have the money. It wasn’t that I was even being cheap. I just didn’t realize that those participating in this particular event could have something else up as long as it has 69 in the end, like 169L or 269L.

Luckily, it’s a good thing I said something on plurk, because other people did not know this either! I wasn’t the only one! Thank God! LOL πŸ™‚ Hump Day Happiness organizer Catty Loon is one of my plurk friends, and she explained it all out to me. Plus, my plurk was helpful to her because they are still ironing out the bumps in this event. Yay for helping!

When I logged in earlier, I had a really nice note from Damen Gorilla, the creator of the cute shoes. He apologized for the misunderstanding, AND he sent me a pair of the adorable Valentine shoes!

96-365

It is amazing when you receive such service from someone when you haven’t even bought anything. Although I know many generous designers, one that goes the extra mile for someone that hasn’t really been a customer is something amazing. In fact, I was so pleased, I went out tonight to check out more shoes and bought a couple of pairs. He’s got a customer for life in me now, and for this hump day, I couldn’t be happier. ❀

What a weekend!

No posts this weekend, but I was really busy! The yard sale was AWESOME. We had SO SO SO much fun and I think everyone made at least a little extra cash. πŸ™‚ I know we managed to clean our inventories at least a little! People will begin picking up their items today [Monday] but if you want to stop by before late Monday night to see what’s left, please feel free. All items not picked up by Monday night around 10 or 11pm SLT will be returned. I’m going to try to return things one by one just so you guys don’t have a big blob in your lost & found so it’s easier for you to pack away for the next sale or delete it. πŸ™‚ Thank you all so much for such an INCREDIBLE turn out. I never expected it would be so huge!! And yes, we will most definitely do this again, maybe in November after the Halloween sales & hunts, but before the Christmas/Winter hunts?

I’m off to bed, but I wanted to share a few shots from the sale. πŸ™‚

Thank you again to everyone who came out to sell, and big thanks to everyone who came out to buy! It was a most amazing weekend, but I won’t be sorry to have the island get back to our normal [well, normal for us] routine. πŸ™‚ Goodnight!

I like that! And that…and that….

It’s been a daydream of mine that I become so incredibly famous that designers close sims for me to shop on alone, or simply bring their items to my doorstep. Hey, I said it was a daydream!

As I’ve mentioned before, a bunch of my friends and I are having a Yard Sale this weekend on my island. We started setting up last night and this is as close to my daydream as I could have ever wanted, because there is SO MUCH STUFF already!!

Yard Sale

I spent time last night hanging out on one of the couches with a couple of friends and looking at all the stuff. And then I bought the couch. LOL! I couldn’t help it. I liked it and it was cheap and it will go in one of my skyboxes!!

Of course, when I logged in today, I noticed new stuff. Including this Sad Bunny chair that SySy put down. I knew the bunny had to be mine.

Sad Bunny

I’m telling you guys, this yard sale is AWESOME. Soooo much stuff. Even clothes and accessories! You absolutely MUST come to it. We officially open tomorrow at 8am, but if you happen to stop by early, well, I can’t stop you. πŸ˜‰ But just know that people are still setting up today, so there will be more stuff tomorrow. [And if you want to come sell some things, just IM me and let me know!]

As for me, I’m trying hard to keep myself up in my skybox. Otherwise I’m going to be doing way more shopping!!

Little updates

I’ve been working tonight on setting up the area for the yard sale this weekend. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read this post. I’m excited for it! I know I will probably end up doing more buying than selling. LOL!

But this is how it looks so far. Not at ALL finished.

Setting Up

Don’t worry, the Fiesta Zone is not gone. It’s just waaaay up in the air for now. And the ice cream place is off to the side.

Tomorrow night is a BACK TO SCHOOL party at 8pm SLT. πŸ™‚ The Thorne-Darwins are being kind enough to host us, so we’ll be at the Ghambt Community Center gymnasium. πŸ˜€

I need to get back to work. πŸ™‚

Fall Cleaning! Or Buying!

Are you drowning in inventory? Are you in need of some extra money? Then keep reading!

My friend Ulaa Coronet came up with the idea, and we are holding a big Yard Sale on my island this coming weekend! Box up that transferable stuff, slap a price on it, and come sell it! And if you have nothing to sell, then just come and buy things! Believe me, there are going to be some NICE clothes, accessories and furniture out there!

The sale will run from Saturday, September 12th at 8:00am SLT to Sunday evening around 9pm SLT.

If you are interested in participating, please contact me by this Thursday. I’ll have the selling area set up Thursday evening and those participating can come bring their items to set up starting on Friday.

[Keep in mind that my island is a residential community, so I ask that you not bring anything that’s too laggy unless it’s boxed up.]

Woot! I love love yard sales!

Oh….go buy it.

I’m a little sad. No Lotus pics ever graced my inventory. How will I ever find out what happened to it?!

Anyway, I was going to show this off in my style blog, but honestly? I’m really really lethargic today. So, I’ll show it here because I really like it.

Castle from Luna's Boutique

This is my new castle from Luna’s Boutique. I love it. Luna’s is having a sale right now where everything is $176L. Maybe it’s an all the time sale. I don’t know. But what I do know is that this castle rocks. It comes furnished too. Not a lot of furnishing, but it’s still nice inside, if a little dark.

Inside the castle

There’s even a secret dungeon. It’s really cool. The bedroom is nice too. With the furnishing, it’s like…225 prims. Something like that. I’m not in world so I couldn’t tell you. But it’s a little over 200 prims. Go buy it and find out for yourself.

I have a real love of butterflies. No, it hasn’t replaced my love of bears, but I do love love butterflies. So when the awesome Aisuru mentioned some new butterflies on plurk and then asked if I wanted a tp to go see them, I took the teleport right away.

Butterflies

Since I’m not in world at the moment, I couldn’t tell you the name of the store or the creator, but just use this SLurl and you’ll find them. They’re in a mall, so it might be laggy. But they are AWESOME. They flutter around so so pretty and it’s only one prim!! I’m using 3 prims for all the butterflies in that picture. Oh, and they’re only $10L and mod/copy. So go buy them.

My friend Grant gave me blog topics earlier today, so I’ll actually have some better posts in the future. Hopefully. πŸ™‚

Spring is BLOOMing!

I was lucky enough to meet ~flirt~ designer Skinkie Winkler last year when I fell in absolute love with one of her jewelry sets. I couldn’t believe someone who could do such awesome work would also be so nice! If I was that talented, I probably wouldn’t be. :-p I kid, I kid. I’ve also been lucky enough to have had Skinkie as one of my island neighbors for the past few months. Everytime I see her dot on my mini map, I always have to wonder what she’s working on!

That being said, let’s take a look at a couple of new sets from ~flirt~!

Bloom started out with just a pretty little ring. I had blogged it back in December and it was definitely one of my favorite rings to wear when I could. But now Skinkie has added much more to the set!

Review - ~flirt~ - Bloom, necklace & earrings

Review - ~flirt~ - Bloom, ring & bracelet

A gorgeous necklace, beautiful earrings, and a fabulous bracelet completes the Bloom look. Everything is delicate, which is something I absolutely appreciate in jewelry in both lives. Also, the jewelry comes with color changing scripts for the gem and the metal, so you can easily mix and match to your wardrobe. And you will definitely want to, because these can be worn with a casual outfit like jeans and a tank top, or with a formal gown.

The Bloom set comes with a necklace, dangling and stud earrings [the stud earrings not shown here], bracelet, and ring. For this weekend only, the set is ONLY $1000L!!! You must must must go pick it up before the price goes back to its normal price, which I believe is $1500L. If you bought everything separately, it would run you $2150L. Although it is worth every single $L of that, it’s more fun to get a deal!

For those of you who aren’t really into the dangling jewelry, or like something a little bit thicker, Skinkie has come out with the Tiny Bloom set!

Review - ~flirt~ - Tiny Bloom

The Tiny Bloom set consists of a metal choker, a wider bracelet, and adorable stud earrings. I really like the way the set is both delicate and heavy. It also has the texture change options so you can get just the right look for all your outfits.

The set is on sale this weekend only for just $500L and after that will be increasing to its normal price, so go pick it up fast! I’ve been wearing the bracelet with jeans since last night and it’s just absolutely perfect.

The Bloom sets are also in a special pink color just for Relay For Life at Skinkie’s store, so you might want to pick those up, too. πŸ™‚

Thank you, Skinkie, for allowing me to review your wonderful items!!
