Apartment Life – $10L home!

My $50L months budget is still intact hooray! I hunted high and I hunted low, finally found an apartment for just $10L per week. This is AL, they rent very inexpensive homes from $10L – $50L. The more you pay , the better the home – simple. These apartments aren’t bad though – just a little oversized. Two rooms, furnished as a lounge and a bedroom. Menu driven stuff – I haven’t tried it and if I was going to stay long term Id prolly ask for it to be removed and use my own gear. I was also given 10 prims – I’ve used 5 so far phew! I’ve got this for 2 weeks – so KERCHING I have spent to date $22L – oh my almost half way through my allowance in just 2 days !

Renting a home in Second Life

Rental apartment - Gorgeous view on the balcony

Hubba Hubba – I haven’t done a rental home for simply agesssss have I ! I hope you find them useful – drop me a line and let me know? Soooo after jetting about a bit I came across this fabbo apartment. It’s with a rental company called Baron Estates and renting was really a breeze. The office is a new method I’ve not seen before, there are boards that you touch and they show photos of whats available in each category. Easy to understand and use. I was looking for something budget conscious and saw an apartment for $175L per week, furnished with heaps of options and some prims. Popped over to see and was so taken with it – I rented on the spot. Very easy to rent, pay the box, group tag arrives – et voilà, you’re in. There is security, which is  simple to set up and operate. Soooo onto the home, what I totally adore is the flexibility of the accommodation. Not only can you choose the carpet/floor colours and textures, but also the walls ! You can also play around with the furniture set up, most of it is by one of my fav designers Bazar – so I was dead chuffed with the quality and style, but if you didn’t like a room – use the box on the wall to remove it and use your own. You get 65 prims with this apartment – plenty to add a more personal feel. (I think I’m using 41 at present and I did curtains, decorated the balcony etc)

Just a taste of the interior as you’d find it upon renting – although I did notice today another of these sweet places opened up and it had a really gorgeous kitchen that was different from mine. Might be worth peeking about to see whats on offer before renting. Above is a photo of the box on the wall that allows you to fool around with the colour scheme and furniture. I noticed that the Bazar furniture also has some colour options to play with. The view is fantastical, right over a protected waterfront, it really doesn’t get much better than that.

I’ve had the rental just twenty-four hours, but have popped in and out at various times. I’m always concerned with apartment living, in case I have unruly or nosey neighbours? The great thing is that your privacy is maintained from block to block view the viewer settings they’ve used. Plus I didn’t actually see a single soul on any of my visits. It is located on mainland, another myth blown away – it’s not laggy! Definitely worth a teleport over to the office to house hunt!

Renting a Home in Secondlife (Part 5)

Aabye 37L per week rental home 1

I was really beginning to give up hope of finding a home to review. I’ve been dumped in forests, under buildings and left in the middle of a sim with nothing to tell me where to go see a home. *le sigh*. On my 50th teleport I finally found something ! This is Aabye rentals, and amazingly this sky home is just 37 L per week (paid monthly) Its got a lot going for it to be honest, and I’m not a big fan of these “boxy” style places, but even I warmed to it. Its spacious and almost everrrrrything in it is texture change. Youre not lumbered with what you’re given, love that. I fiddled about a bit, changed the wall colour and pattern, the lounge set is all colour & pattern change too, even the bed has a lot of choice of linen shades! The kitchen is a little out of proportion – unless you’re Amazonian woman – but its great fun, you can alter the wood of it and the counter tops, plus its got animations for cooking,baking,washing up, the fridge even hands out food & drinks. If you touch the window you get a choice of scenes to look out upon – nice touch. The rules are simple – you get a zero prim allowance, so you cant rez anything out permanently, but you can place shopping to open and then remove it. My group invite arrived within seconds, which was lovely. It would make a great base or romantic hideaway – the bed has a REALLY FULL menu *wink*, there’s also a dance system. Brilliant value all round.

Slink Physique & 37L per week rental home

Had to get a vanity shot in, the new corset that Player bought me from Blacklace awwww and also my newwww mesh Slink Physique body ! I’ve been playing around with this allll morning and I LOVE it ! Such a great price too, at 1250L it’s so affordable. Go grab a demo and try it out, worth a look. My hair is from Damsel Fly, a store Id not been to for such a long time – they sorta seemed to get stuck in a groove of what Id call more middle-aged female styles? Anyway, they’ve moved on and got into mesh, I popped over on the day of the 100L sale and snapped up a few do’s, very very pretty and modern yay!
