The Winter Shop & Hop Event – Tips

120 vendors and 6 sims – this is a lot to look at and I share some tips here, that hopefully help you to make the best out of your visit at SL’s Winter shopping event.

shop-hop-tipps-0

Best you start here:
https://secondlife.com/destinations/winter_shopping
1. View one of the destinations and click on “View on map”.
2. Copy the link from the browser.
3. Paste the link into the “Nearby Chat” field in your SL viewer and click enter.
4. Click the link (see image below) and click “Map” in the places window.

shop-hop-tipps-1

Now you can see how many people are on which sim. Just click on a spot on the map and there you go…

shop-hop-tipps-2

…and enjoy all the lovingly decorated shops. Grab the gift boxes and demos and beware of clothing that does not fit your body or gift card gifts, that do not apply directly, but only in the vendors main shop. This happened to me to spend money on a dress, that does not even fit my SLink Phys. body, arggghhh. We are blinded by all the goodies!

shop-hop-tipps-3

At CHEZ MOI I tried gift-wrapping and got this cute set for my shop.
After finishing the first sim I went home and did something I hardly recommend my fellow shopping addicts:
1. create 6 new folders in your inventory and name them the 6 event sims names
2. in your inventory go to the “Recent” tab and move all new items to the matching sim folder. This works even better with 2 open inventory windows side by side.
3. Now go on shopping or unpack your first demos and goodies.

shop-hop-tipps-4

With the above system it is super easy to find a shop again, where you got the demo. Searching one sim is so much easier than searching the whole event to get the reduced prices (talking from experience!).

And of course it is great, that I can tell you the sims, where I did my purchases.

This is what I am wearing in the above image:
Santa Back Pack ZED – Tinseled (you can see the shop on my top image right, it is a shop for men, but the cute back pack can be resized drastically without any issue, great gift!)

Dress by NEVE – Aurelian (50%) Usually I am wearing my own clothes, but I just couldn’t walk by this soft and cosy dress with a wrap around shirt, so well made. A great deal!

Socks and Shoes – SLink – Tinseled (25%) still pricey, but just perfect and beautiful and the socks got many color options even with the single pair. Love them!

An irregular pearl and chain necklace by .::Supernatural::. Onyx Set – Aurelian (50%), and also the gift is a similar style and well worth to go by, have a look and buy an additional neck lace.

I can’t wait to go on, still 3 sims to explore and so many packages to unpack…a big thank you to all those vendors for their hard work to make us happy.

Have fun,
Much Love, Freda

Walking the dog

Being back from our long journey from England to South Africa I enjoy walking the dog in a winter landscape, thick sweaters, hot tea and snow!

Winter’s Hollow is a beautiful calm winter sim without all those colorful christmas things, just perfect to relax and going for a winter walk.

Is White a color?

I say yes. I LOVE white for a fresh look!

But also orange with purple makes a great business outfit.

Squirrel watching at Garden of Dreams

10-gunshot-top-1

“Garden of Dreams” is a wonderful place for romantic dates, which is in the destination guide right now. I love the busy squirrel running the lamp post up and down and swinging (see pic right upper corner) – a relaxing beautifully decorated fall mood.
