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.

Starting off with a chuckle! (Freebie/Dollarbie).

First, shop, that I visited was S@bbia of course as  it’s my daily routine and Woo Hoo a new group gift.

Actually, I suspect these shoes maybe an old group gift, I didn’t have time to check my invent, but I DO NOT CARE! The thing is you know that when it comes to quality freebies I am happy that they’re kept out permanently or occasionally dusted off and put out because it means those who missed getting them the first time have a second chance to get them.   Of course, I could be wrong and these are new.

Just excellent quality, freshly buffed leather, shoes with a tied lace and this style is a perfect “go-to” for wearing with jeans, shorts AND I know since I keep all of my S@bbia group gifts these shoes go with the dresses perfectly.

Can you see it?  My feet in the background.  I’d rezzed this doormat to try to show the shoes off better as the skin on my feet and legs don’t match and I didn’t want to zoom on them, I’ll tell you about that at the end, what I didn’t realise is that this doormat comes with a menu and I chose to use the “picking up keys” option which meant I bent over to pick up the keys only to fall forward and down into the ground….ok it made me chuckle lol.

Thank You, Bri!

It’s been brought to my attention by one of our reg readers, Bri (you all have nicknames to me) that “potentially” the skins/hair etc I did a post on are not legit ie copy botted.  I will NOT say that that is it in this case but F*CK IT, I’m pulling the post as I know the shops/creators in SL are just people like you and I and all they’re doing is trying to earn some money using skill and/or their time and imagination and no one should leech off someone else’s hard work.  So Thank you I truly don’t want to be part of the problem.

I simply can’t be ARS*D! (Dollarbie(s).

Moan, moan and more moaning as I wish sellers would UPDATE their shops LM’s in their profiles or MP shops. I’ve spent the last 2 days TPing here there and everywhere, often ending up in the middle of nowhere which I guess is a lot better than landing on someone’s private property and getting booted or a club which would make a hardened SLer blush but all of those are nothing compared to finding yourself rezzed in a wall, under the floor or as in this case trapped in rocks under the ground.

OK, Moaning over, I am SO PLEASED with these pants.

Ignore the shoes I’m wearing, they’re a classic case of get them while they’re free/cheap as these have now gone up to full price but you may want to check out the High Top Dollarbies in the same shop as these pants.  Not the best fit style-wise to these pants, which is why I’m not wearing them, but good Dollarbies on their own.

The picture of the pants on the Marketplace show a hud with the colours and most of the colours look just like shades of black and that’s not necessarily the case.  In this ↑ picture, I’ve chosen the brown on brown options and in this picture ↓ the bolder colours.

I will try to see if I can find the Mystic shop inworld but I’m getting HANGRY, can you tell lol, so I’m logging out for a snack then logging in for a short while to log back out again as I have to do RL for a while.

Finally I’m smiling.(Dollarbies).

I don’t know what made me happier, finding the Magnum Ice Cream in my freezer that I forgot I had or finally finding something blog-worthy.

These are only available on the Marketplace and yet I know that the “Nerdy Girl” shop is an inworld shop as I’ve had stuff from there before so when I’d logged in to try the outfit out I checked her profile and it looks like the shop was temporarily closed down but she is planning on opening up soon….and yes I’ve forgotten her name lol.

Till then some things have been put in the Marketplace shop and priced at 1Ld!  This hoody has a hud of 10 “sarky” comments and even though I’m not a slogany person I do find them amusing in this case.  There are other hoodies and tops with different slogans, plain or one pack which I’m assuming comes with a non-copy/trans-version as you get a “BFF” option so you and your BFF can wear matching hoodies.

PS.  If you’re wondering why no new Mina as I’m usually wearing a new Mina when using her sim as a backdrop, she is taking a break and hopefully working on new designs because I have to say that I’m missing the thrill of finding a new Mina is out.  Never mind she’s doing what we all should do and that’s taking a break which I am doing tomorrow. So I might log in in the morning because every day I’ve been checking S@bbia for a new Group Gift and every day it’s been a big fat fail and I just know that the one day I don’t log in in the morning is the day she puts a new gift out for us…it’s called “sods law”.

Just 1 out of 3. (Dollarbie).

I think its time to give my poor lappie a rest as I struggled to get the 3 pairs of shoes I picked up to rezz properly and I know from previous Shey shoes purchases/gifts it’s me that’s the problem.

These are simply fab and I can’t believe they’re only 1Ld! A big hud of brilliant shades and 2 choices for the metal.  I also picked up the “Naked Shades, Beverly Flats” and the “Maddison Stilettoes”.  The flatties only cost me 1Ld and the stilettoes 5Ld and for that, you get a massive 41 hud.

Again I’ve had quite a few shoes from the Shey range and they never fail to impress me so I’ve put the link to their first MP shop page so you can look at the other Dollarbies and Cheapies.

PS. Make sure to check the fits.

Old Friends.(Dollarbies).

There are some shops in SL that I visit on a regular basis waiting for the newest Group Gift and !g0 is one of them and nope no new Group gift.

Then I had a brainwave because did you know that there is a discount and gift department? F*ck yeah I kid you not!

Lots and lots of Dollarbies and although they’re marked as Group Gifts they’re old ones so you don’t even need to be in the group just pay a Linden and they’re yours.

Just the top in this case…I swear SL is just like RL where I have my fav jeans.  I’m now wondering if I can get away with green jeans in RL as well.

Some of the clothes are older and come in the S,M,L etc sizes and some are newer and come in Mesh bod fits.

To find the discounted items and the Dollarbies you can either use the shop TP, it’s the stack of boxes near the LM or walk to the first door of the shop to your right and they’re upstairs.

Think about joining the !g0 group it’s one of the groups I have been in almost from the beginning. I LOVE the !g0 style I also love the regular Group Gifts and often a certain colour of a new release item has been set to half price for Group members and then, of course, we have CHRISTMAS! I know it’s way too early to be thinking of Christmas and Advent Calendars but when it comes to !g0 and their Calendar if you’re going to just do one this year make it !g0’s as the gifts are outstanding.  You do have to be in the group but it’s ONLY 50Lds! Still the same piddling price all these years later.

Check out the whole shop as there is everything from floaty hipster to costumes.  I have an amazing hat/hair from here which when I feel like wandering SL dressed up like a lady and not some cheap-ass blogger emblazoned with “demo” signs I put on a gown and this hat/hair and float around like Lady Muck or if I’m feeling it I pull on my Ballet shoes and the best Tutu which I bought from !g0 and pirouette my way through SL.

PS. I think that fox is stalking me.

“”Old World” Charm.(Dollarbies).

I spotted a flapping fish being used as decor and I want it for my beach so I grabbed the info and that’s how I ended up back at a shop called “Old World”.

This is a shop which flys a bit under the radar and yet it’s STUFFED with such good stuff.  A lot is in the Role Play vein yet so much of it is perfect for anyone’s home but mainly garden.  For people who have small plots of land, there are ready-made veg gardens where you simply rezz and enjoy.

At the LM are a whole load of Dollarbies.  This Pavillion is one of them, just stunning and it’s a good reflection of the standard of the designs you can buy and only 11 prims.

This is as good now as it was when it was first set out for us.  I think it has 4 textures and this is the one I like the best.it

Oh Lord, I love bagels and these bagels look good enough to eat. You get 2 in the pack both wearables but you can rezz one as decor as it’s only 1 prim.  The second one comes with a sort of “hold helper” which is a bit like an “ankle lock” and as you can see it makes for a good pose.

That potted plant is another Dollarbie.  There are many more and if you want to splash out it’s only 20Lds to join the group and there are some handy decor items.  I may join it just to grab the heap of snow-covered pumpkins which will look great at Wintertime.

As for the fish, I’m going to have to walk around yet again as although I’ve checked out the Marketplace shop it’s not there.
