SL for Nowt

Living a digital life with empty pockets

If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air…

It’s a glorious and sunny day here in the UK today, and Mar went hopping around the grid in search of swimwear. What she found was a new bikini and pareo set at Wanderer the Wind, in Trenza. Join the Nenashigusa Nest group and head upstairs in the store with your group tag active.

The set is a group item camp, which means you must have your group tag active, and sit in the beanbag chair for 40 minutes in order to earn the item. It’s a perfect time to get some inventory-sorting done (Mar cleared out almost 200 unwanted items while she sat) and you can see a countdown of how many seconds you have left. The chair will sometimes have someone sitting in it, so if that’s the case, wander downstairs and try your hand at the lucky boards (again, group-only) and check out the cheap items on the shelves upstairs by the camping chair. They have some beautiful lingerie items from as little as L$1 (average price L$25). Mar grabbed some of those, too, so hop behind the cut for more pics!

In the meantime, have one of my favourite pieces of summery music: Groove Armada “At The River” :)

Sim freebie walkaround: Mischief Cove

This post was blighted by a huge number of crashes, so it took me almost all day to complete. Highly frustrating, but I am nothing if not dedicated *g* I would have taken more screenshots, but I suffered a total of 19 crashes while making this, so just staying logged and finding the freebies was difficult enough, let alone remembering to screencap them all!

Today I’m doing a sim freebie walkaround (including dollarbies, of course, which are just as good as freebies!). What does this entail? Well, I take a walk around a specific sim and screencap and link you to all of the freebies and dollarbies that I find there. I try to pick interesting sims, rather than just mega-malls: sims that have a great build with lots of fun stuff to look at, poseballs to try out (useful for taking screencaps/snapshots) and maybe even some free-to-copy items lying around.

Today’s sim freebie walkaround is at Mischief Cove, which is home to some great stores that you might have heard of.

Hop behind the cut for instructions, directions, and piccies!
