Guess where I’ve been? (Group Gifts 20Ld & Dollarbies & Great Service).

I finally managed to squeeeeeze into the Blueberry shop and it was so worth it, not so I could spend my FREE Credits but because there is a New Group Gift and it has to be said that the “old” Group Gifts are either still top quality or pretty new so if you’ve not visited for a while make sure to check them out.

Just like fur in SL, a “Puffer” look is so hard to do but this puffer jacket is the best I’ve found and to find that not only does it cost the token Group joining price of 20Lds you get a “Megapack” for both the jacket and the tied t-shirt layered under it.  Want more? You also get that t-shirt as a separate wearable…honestly how good is that.

BTW The Gift Card is STILL available.  If you pay the 20Lds joining fee then check out the group notices and scroll down to the “Blueberry 8th Birthday” note as that is the one that contains the gift card.  Do not activate it until you can get into the shop as once it has been activated you have 2 weeks to use it or lose it.  A good way to beat the lag is to check out the outfits in the Marketplace shop and select what you’d like to buy and then TP to the shop as of course you can’t use credit on the MP.

BTW Did you know that upstairs at Blueberry there are Gacha’s?  I didn’t till someone mentioned it in a post but the other thing they mentioned is that it’s best to use them when the shop is quiet…and the shop is hardly ever quiet lol.

PS. There are also a small number of Dollarbies in the Marketplace shop.

WOW Talk about great customer service!!!!! So I was lucky to be able to get into the Blueberry shop to treat myself to something and something went wrong, not sure why but it doesn’t matter because I dropped a note to one of the Customer Service people and not only did I get an instant response, she was actually inworld though so I may have had to wait a bit otherwise, but not only did she resolve the problem she did it so well I ended up with a SH*T EATING grin on my face!

Unsexy. (5Ld, 3Ld Hunt Prize’s & Cheap finds).

There is a hunt going on called “Fantasy Forest Hunt” and each prize is only 5Lds, as soon as I saw the one for the “The Artist Shed” I knew I had to have it.

Green and orange my fav colours.  The title comes from my misreading of the pose as I thought it said “unsexy” when in fact it said “unisex” and you do get only the 1 pose but I like it, it’s unfussy and works well.

There is another hunt going on in the shop which is easy to find and it costs just 3Lds. I will leave it as a surprise for you but I will say it’s an item of decor.

I’m not a fan of the layout of this shop as I don’t think it’s user friendly and you may miss bits out so make sure you explore it fully as it has not only great bargains but some new designs.  I treated myself to a bucket with a plant in it, 25Lds, and a classic wood picnic table for 50Lds.

Then I went hunting for another “Fantasy Forest” prize and found it……I’m on a roll.

This large pool/pond is about 64 prims and it is very much a statement item.  Non-mod and no sexy menu in it.  The LM I used to get to the Splintered Creations seemed to take me to an RP cowboy sim and I was about to TP out till I spotted on the ground and a signpost the way to go to find items for sale plus where the Hunt item has been hidden….check out the funny raccoons!

PS. If you’ve not got them then under the desk in the Artist Shed is a gift for us, click the gift box, and you get wearable/rezzable corndogs.

PPS.  It’s that little group of mushrooms that you’re looking for.

Deseptively sweet and simple. (Freebie).

Blimey, it’s turned so cold in RL my cats are giving me lots of dirty looks as I won’t put the fire on…when they pay the bill they can put the heating on lol.

Now that we have our sim 95% perfect, it’s time for me to start working on my home, so I remembered to “Lock” the house in place so I don’t accidentally delete it AGAIN and slowly but surely I’ve added a few more items inside. When I’d done enough I decided to take a break and visit a shop I’d previously got a decent Freebie/Dollarbie from and I wasn’t disappointed.

Deceptively simple design, plenty of fits and enough mesh body fits for everyone. You don’t need to join the group to buy it it’s actually set for free for all.  Next to it on the desk is a couple of other items of clothing, one for 25Lds and one for 1Ld.  Both of these are a “Blast from the past” in that they’re a mix of appliers and FLEXI! I actually think that when it’s well-scripted the floatiness of flexi can be rather good and one of the flexi outfits has some bold colour to it.  I remember in the past teaming up a flexi skirt with a mesh corsette and damn it looked good so sometimes picking apart an outfit to make others up can work really well.

Loitering with intent. (10Ld and Freebies).

I went on the Marketplace to get that scooter Faith has just blogged and you just know I left with a full basket of cheapies so my next few posts will be those finds, if they’re decent of course.

First is this 10Ld outfit.

I was more intrigued by this sporty look than I usually would be because in the picture the seller has used there is a lot of black outlining which makes this outfit look cartoonish.  Only 10Ld so I decided to give it a test and nope it’s not cartoonish at all and it’s rather good.  I can’t swear to it at the moment but I’d say you also get 6 colours in the hud as well.

The reason I’m using this pretty cottagey background and not somewhere sporty is that I’m busy loitering on the “Two Moon Gardens” sim as I’ve slapped the “Big Prize Boards” and once you do that you have to wait at least 10mins on the sim before you’re registered.

While I was there I grabbed the Group Gifts and I’m really glad I did.

That fenced in area is the new GG, they really do seem to be changed on a weekly basis so grab now as I don’t know when it will be changed.  It comes in a very handy rezzer and is only 18 prims.  I’ve plonked myself in the picture so you can get some idea of the size.

The flowering grasses, there are 2 different styles in the picture, are also gifts and they have been out for a while and will probably remain out for a while as they’re really good quality ground cover.

PS.  I did change the colour of my outfit in the second picture.

UPDATE: Silly me! My only moan was this fenced-in area didn’t have a gate and as I was looking, squinting, at my picture I spotted what looked like a gate so I’ve popped inworld and YES! Excellent there is a double gate.  I don’t know why it’s not that important but it just makes it so much more useable being able to walk in and out of this fenced-in area and not having to fly over it. Now I am definitely going to be using it on my sim.

Kim Kardashion would approve. (Dollarbie).

The Kardashian is in the overshading of the boobies, it’s a bit like contouring gone mad.

I forgive them though for this is a rather new and different look. I picked this up off the “Cut-n-Draw”‘s Marketplace shop and there is the same Dollarbie gift for men and a chunky watch and these don’t seem to be in their inworld shop.

Not got much to say as I get to ESCAPE my four walls for a “necessary” shopping trip in about 10 mins so just enough time to click publish and put some lippy on and enjoy the simple pleasures in life….have a great and safe day!

I dare yoy. (Freebie(s)).

La Perla has a wall of free to join group gifts and that’s where you will find these thigh-high boots.

The editing has made them more of a buttery yellow rather than the soft beige they are. I don’t know if I’ve shown you these before but I’m 100% know I’ve shown you the block-heeled silver shoes as I’m sure they’re still in my invent.

If you’re intending on being a bit of a beach babe then check out the scuba suit.  You have to join a different, still free, group and you get a his ‘n’ her set plus a surfboard.  I have blogged these before and even though they’re in the old mesh fits they’re still pretty good.

As for the “Dare”, there are two cabinets with old hunt prizes priced at mainly 10Lds but some are 15Ld, I didn’t check them all.  Sometimes when you go into “edit” then “content” you can see what’s in a box but not in this case and since I’m giving myself a strict budget to stick to this month since I’ve splurged too much already I walked away but you might want to have a “Lucky dip” and see if you could score yourself a sweet deal.

Games big people play. (Dollarbie(s)).

Slurrrp…must drink more coffee!

Behind me is my latest build, at the top is a platform for me to work on, at this moment I’m softening up the steps and paths up to the platform and yes this is how I spend a productive Sunday morning lol.

OK, I got 2 excellent Dollarbies off the Marketplace, only showing you one of them.  This sweater is so simple, so wearable and with the addition of a hud with plenty of colours in it for every pair of jeans you own lol.  I was also going to show you the skirt which I’d picked up but to me, it just didn’t really suit this jumper and I couldn’t be bothered to change my top so if you do follow the link to the Arata shop then check out the “Flared Mini Skirt” you won’t be disappointed.

GOOD GOD WOMAN! More unrequested suggestions!  The thing is I use a gaming platform called Big Fish Games, I think even Faith once had an account with them.

I pay something like £6 a month and for that, I get 1 free gift token a month which I can use to buy whatever standard game I want, daily and weekly half-price games offer, occasionally BOGOF’s, discounts for special occasions and EVERY game comes with a whole 60 mins of full demo gameplay so you can play before you pay…unintentional rhyming.

So as always I logged in to see what today’s new game and offers were and spotted the banner which said “Big Fish is teaming up with the World Health Organisation” and offering us 10 FREE GAMES.  I’ve downloaded the first one and it’s a  “Collectors Edition” which basically means a much more detailed game and those retail for about £10 each or if you’re a game member then 2 tokens but it’s FREE.

I do not know if this is only for Game Members or not but I have been a Big Fish game player for almost as long as I’ve SL’d and that has been a long time and I’ve been 100% happy with this gaming platform.

You get everything from Hidden Objects, Time Management, Strategy, Adventure and on and on. The quality of the graphics and gameplay are excellent.  If you Google images for “Big Fish Games” you can see an example of the graphics.

For those of you stuck with bored kids, there is a selection of children’s games both educational and just plain fun ones.

As I said for only £6(ish) a month you can join try it out and then just cancel if you don’t want to continue on.

You do have to download their software on to your laptop.  It’s just so a window opens on your screen and you can access your games from there but check the website for more info. Honestly, it’s EASY! Computer friendly 100% Trustful…a lot easier than SL lol.

PS.  This is played on your computer but you can use other platforms to access your games.
