Boring/bored. (Freebie & Info).

Just a quickie.

Blueberry is celebrating its 8th SL Birthday!  I probably still have some of the Group Gifts from way back then and I know all so well how an excited buzz goes around when there is a new Group Gift out.  Anyhow to celebrate its Birthday it means a few things are going to be coming up over the next couple of weeks but for this week only on their Marketplace shop the older/retired items have been reduced by 50%.

I’ve not looked at these bargains yet but I did pick up this freebie dress I’m wearing as Blueberry does have a couple of freebies/dollarbies on their MP shop.

BTW I was so tempted to leave my backdrop up as this thing is one prim sucking MOFO! and the note Faith would drop me when she’s spotted the sim was down to just 13 prims would have been worth the chuckle…but I’m not that mean lol.

Tatty old shed. (Dollarbie).

This is definitely NOT a “Tatty old shed” in fact it’s rather a decent build so much so I may just use it on my part of the sim instead of a greenhouse.

If you look at the bottom right of this picture you will see a shrub which is included and also those purple and orange flowers.

These flowers trailing around the door are such excellent quality I have everything crossed that I can repurpose them as YESSS Editable!  So you know that when I log back in I’m going to be tearing it apart prim by prim.

And even better since it’s also copyable it means I don’t have to sacrifice this really good build.

PS.  This gift is standing next to the Hisa shop and inside is another Group Gift of lanterns.

UPDATE: Wowzer, so I had a bit of a flyby to check out a building I spotted and I am most impressed with the few homes that are for sale on the sim.  Nice fresh designs, excellent texturing and OMG the prims are so unbelievably reasonable.  Check out the “Forest Retreat” near to the LM, all of that and a “bag of chips” for 34 prims!  I was so interested in how much this build costs I tried to TP to the Shiny Shabby event where it’s for sale but I couldn’t get in because I don’t think it’s open to us as of yet.

This is a BRAND new shop to SL but whoever is behind the label must be an SL old-timer as to hit the market with such great builds is someone who knows their stuff.  This is a shop I can see growing big in SL.

Virtual Tourist – New Brighton (Plus Dollarbie)

I dont know about you but my mood has been a bit lowwww the last few days, lock down blues I’m calling it – how you doing? I decided to cheer myself along with a visit to a place that’s actually only an hour or so away from where I live in real life. Brighton oh Brighton – such a wonderful place. The Second Life version is just as much fun and a lot cheaper than real life ! My land mark should drop you right on the beach alongside the famous pier. From there you can stroll along to all the attractions.

Grab yourself a bike from the many and assorted rez points, find yourself a snack or three and just enjoy the view. Cycle up the hill and you’ll find a picnic spot and a handy zip line to whizz down to the beach again.

Have a walk along the pier itself, its very traditional with lots of silliness to be had. From what I can see there are at times shows put on in the theatre at the end of the pier – id really really love to see one, actually Im going to head back, join the group and see if any come up in the notices – I’ll let you know ! The outfit for today’s trip is this jumpsuit by sYs , its just $1L – mesh body fits only. I liked it so much I bought the PINK one also, some colours are a dollarbie, some $10L.

I was really surprised to see some of the huge town houses on the very beach front are up for grabs as rentals ! Healthy prim allowance and I think $800 per week. If that’s a bit rich for your budget but you’d like to be in Brighton, look around the corner and you’ll find some sweet beach huts on the sand for just $300L per week. (Look I’m riding a levitating scooter – only in Brighton!!) Have a great day!

Free, Free, almost Free.(Mainly Info).

This top is the only freebie I’m going to show you and I will explain why.

This is one of the Group Gifts from Justice and if the LM doesn’t take you to them then turn right and they’re on the walls the doors are on.  This T-shirt seemed suitably appropriate for the time and it comes in plenty of fits and there are other gifts inc ones for the boys…on the other side of the other door.

Now for info.

I went for the FREE Bento Mesh Head which is a “Stay at home” gift from Dream.  As this is a BOM head and I don’t actually have the updated firestorm so I can’t really show it to you as it’s just a blue head but it’s well worth getting.  Then if you have 50Lds to spare you can/should join the Dream group as the “Daily Prize Board” is a complete mesh body as a prize which I’m going to assume will be an excellent fit to the head.  There is a demo of this shape so you can try it before you decide to join and then once join slap the “Daily Prize Board” and hopefully you will win it. This isn’t a “branded” body shape but I will assume it’s a perfect match to the Bento head but again there is a demo for you to try.

Eyes, Lotus is having a little Easter Hunt going on and each little sparkly egg costs only 1ld and contains a pair of mesh eyes.  If the prizes are anywhere as nice as the eyes in this shop I will be picking up an egg or two later when I log back in.

Virtual Tourist – slouchy day

Honestly I’ve never felt this tired doing SO little ! Today I headed off to the beach at Gentle Breezes. What a treat ! Lots of places to take in the beautiful scenery, singles and couples spots to relax.

Loads of hidden places to laze and contemplate your navel. Or as I just did – clear out your inventory.

Oh ! My outfit is by Loryan and costs just $1L – its an all-in-one kinda thing. One colour and fits for : -eBODY Curvy, -SLink Hourglass, -SLink Physique, -Maitreya, -Belleza Venus, Isis & Freya. Just perfect for a lazy day.

Virtual Tourist – Wander around (Dollarbie outfit & hair)

Starting out on my day trip around Whispering Windz with a fab outfit from Jelly Roll, all dollarbies including the baseball cap and hair ! Each piece has a Hud with colour and pattern options – that should bring a smile to your face ❤

Whispering Windz (I usually avoid places or stores that use a Z instead of an S – but hey ho!) has lots on offer to entertain you – from a log flume ride, rope climbing, hot air balloon, boat rides and more. I really enjoyed climbing through the trees on the ropes and walk ways, the log flume was just brill – nice long journey and great scenery.

As you arrive by the log flume you will notice a white post that acts as a teleporter to all the destinations. Click and choose where you want to go and the URL appears in your local chat – click that and off you go. I was unable to find the race track though!

One for Faith.(Dollarbie).

Like the proverbial “Bad Penny” Faith returns to the UK shores tomorrow and it will be the first time since she’s seen the sim so I’m frantically splashing as much colour over our sim as I’ve realised about 80% of our sim is green!  Green grass, green trees, green shrubs and even the paths and rocks have green moss on them and then when taking this picture I realised the jacket I’m showing you is of course GREEN and yes green is my fav colour😊.

I’ve also taken this shot just using our sims windlight setting so if Faith sees this post she can see a bit of what’s been happening while she’s been away…..and I’m even planning on moving the church because she CAN’T STOP ME!

So now for the Dollarbie and the question is “when is a hunt not a hunt” and thats when the hunt poster also has the prize attached to it and this jacket is the prize for the Spring Hunt.

It comes in just the standard mesh size fits, I also joined the MLM Frees and offers group which isn’t free but at only 5Lds it may as well be and I picked up the fashion trainers, you do only get the 1 fit and I’m not sure which one that is but it took nothing to tweak it to fit my SLink feet.  There are other offers/discount and freebies in the shop so a nice mix of stuff.
