Super Bargain Saturday 25, yo! June 26, 2010

Have you joined the Super-Bargain Saturday event group yet? Well you can do so at the subscriber in any store participating in the event and save big every Saturday. This means BIG DEALS for you every single week from awesome designers. Every Saturday, from 12am-12pm SLT, you get whatever the designer puts out for only 60L. And these are very generous designers, so you won’t want to miss what they have for you. You don’t have to join to reap the rewards, but you will get a list every week with the stores and slurls ahead of time.

Seaside Splash Friends Pose

As of two weeks ago, Super-Bargain Saturday hit Olive Juice, and it’s back again! Since it’s officially summer time in the States, that means beach parties and fun with friends in any world. So I thought this friends pose would be perfect for capturing those fun moments on film. AND, since it’s a SBS release, that means it is only 60L all day today! After midnight tonight, it will go to full price, so grab it on the cheap while you can.

And don’t forget to check out the other great deals at the other Super-Bargain Saturday stores, like my neighbor in Morning Glory, Awesome Blossom. She has the cutest front porch set that includes a rocking chair with 4 custom animations (made by yours truly), side table with tablecloth and accessories. The chair and table are all texture change too, so the options are endless. All that for only 60L today too!

Happy Shopping 🙂

“Every Saturday a group of designers will place an item marked down to 60L in front of their mainstore. The item will be available from 12am SLT on Saturday until 11:59pm SLT on Saturday. All the designers are going to put up a totally new product or something from their store list. Each week we are going to give you the opportunity to discover new and great designers with gorgeous products.”

Operation Squeegee – July 1st to 15th 2010 June 11, 2010

Whenever I set foot on a beach and smell the salty air, it feels like coming home. I can spend hours just sitting there and watching the waves hitting the shore, the clouds passing by and birds sailing the sky. I never leave without collecting some seashells. I love the sea and its inhabitants and therefore the worsening oil spill situation in the Gulf of Mexico upsets me deeply and makes me feel helpless.

At the end of the day

If you feel the same and would like to do help somehow, please consider volunteering or donating to the “Operation Squeegee“. This Second Life Fundraiser event to benefit the National Wildlife Federation is currently being organised by Further Monday (under the name Tidal Shoreland) together with other designers, bloggers and volunteers. More information on the event and how to join is available on the website “Operation Squeegee”.

“We are looking for talented content creators, like yourself, to participate in an SL exclusive fundraising effort to support recovery efforts from the ongoing gulf oil-spill. The event will run from July 1st – 15th, and will have lots of events and publicity associated with it, as well as the vendor merchandise area dedicated to your contributions!

Merchants will be provided with 2 x 1prim vendors. A 100% charity donation vendor and a 50% charity donation vendor. You choose how much of your sales go to charity. You will be allocated a cart and 10 prims (the prim count of the cart does not go towards your total prim count) You may use the fundraiser vendors, decorations, store logo, LM giver etc up to 10 prims.

If you are unable to participate in the fundraiser but would like to make a donation, you are more than welcome to. There will be donation boxes located around the merchandise area with 100% of all funds donated going towards The National Wildlife Federation, alternatively you can pay our Treasurer directly – Tidal Shoreland (if you do please let her know via IM and/or notecard).

Operation Squeegee - 1st to 15th July!!

Funds raised through Operation Squeegee will go to The National Wildlife Federation. Funds that are donated to the federation will support the following efforts:

* Development and deployment of the National Wildlife Federation’s Gulf Coast Surveillance Teams, a volunteer network that is being organized to monitor the coast for wildlife impacted by the oil spill. Beyond the initial surveillance needed, this effort will then shift to long term volunteer restoration programs.
* Restoration of vulnerable nesting and breeding grounds, as well as other delicate ecosystems found throughout the Gulf Coast for water birds, sea turtles and other animals.
* Public education about the oil spill and its impacts on wildlife, including our online efforts at http://www.nwf.org/oilspill and informing the press and others about the impacts the oil spill is having on coastal communities and wildlife.
* Policy work at the national and state level to support restoration of habitat in the Gulf Coast and better protection of our waters and coastlines.”

The Intergalactic Spy June 1, 2010

The Intergalactic Spy

Only a handful of trusted people knew her civil name. To everyone else she was Agent Pink, Intergalactic Spy, one of the Defenders of the Triangulum Galaxy and someone you wouldn’t want to cross.

The day she turned legend was when a convoy of spaceships from the far away Star Nebula entered Her Majesty’s territory and started an agressive attack on the capital city and the President’s residence. Without hesitation she threw herself into the line of fire and fought the enemy, one by one, saving the ancient civilisation of Triangulum all on her own.

Under Attack

Rumour has it that when the President awarded her the Intergalactic Medal of Distinction, a quick smile curved her lips. But mysteriously, none of the hundreds of cameras documenting the ceremony had been able to catch it.

It takes too long to build a good reputation to risk losing it for a blink of an eye in history.

If you suddenly find yourself among predators, it is recommended to adapt to their appearance and make a quick exit.

Olive Juice- Barrel of Poses
If you haven’t joined SLDD yet, you most definitely should. It’s this fantastic shoppers club that has different price options, and you get to snag exclusive deals and sometimes exclusive items EVERY SINGLE DAY! Today happens to to Olive Juice‘s turn for the 50% off item, YAY! This “Barrel of Poses” is just what it sounds like. It comes packed with 8 static poses, fully adjustable to fit your av, easy touch menu built-in and 7 prims with sculpted flowers or only 2 without. Both options are included to blend in with your summer or spring decor. I hope you have as much fun with it as I did making it.

Just make sure your SLDD card is attatched, and choose ‘pay’ from the menu. If you aren’t a member, sign up right in the Olive Juice store at the Shopper Register Sign in the front-left hand side when you walk in. That’s it! Fun times at half the price, weeeee!

V is for Venus Flytrap May 5, 2010

Hi there! Sorry for my long silence, but I have been experiencing quite a bit of SL fatigue recently and was totally unmotivated to take pictures, blog or even just log into SL. However, I felt a slight spark of inspiration tonight to take up the Dork’s Alphabet again. Don’t worry, you didn’t miss a large part of it, I decided to have a break from the strict alphabetic order and catch the ideas as they fly by. Just realised the unintended pun when looking at today’s card – teehee.

I would like to thank Further Monday for showing me the hilarious Ollipog store at the Fantasy Fair. It was very hard for me to decide which one to choose because I loved them all! In the end I went for their RFL item and this “Fly J’Accuzi”. So if you were ever looking to change into a “Blubird of Crappiness” with a cherry on your head, a tiny ghost lemur or a mandrake magic root (!!), this should be your first stop.

Further doesn’t only constantly find cool avatars, she also just founded the in-world group “Shapeshifters Union” and the accompanying Flickr group here. Yay, I have been yearning for such a group for ages! If you consider yourself a shapeshifter, please do join this group. There will also be regular events, for example get-togethers at a surprise sim with the challenge to dress according to the sim theme. Hope to see you there. 🙂
