This is all you need.(Freebie).

I never just take 1 picture but 1 picture is all you need of this exc gift from the Ariskea shop.

I didn’t even bother rezzing the copy I grabbed as it has already been set out in a lovely setting already right next to the LM.  24 Prims, a lovely size for table and chairs or 2 big comfy chairs and a fire and you must hang a chandelier from that high ceiling etc.

I also didn’t want to TP home to rezz my copy as I’ve left my AV standing there logged out to do this post and when I rezz back inworld I want a nice mooch around.

PS I have a feeling, lost the notice, that the Ariskea group is usually a paid for one but at the mo, it’s free to join so don’t dawdle.

This is “what next”

what-next-snowy-lodge-100l

 

I hunted the market place the other day for something cheap & cheerful to utilise as a background for some winter furniture. Imagine my surprise when I found this brilliant little home, all ready for winter from what next! Now what next is  a premium type of store, its one of my fav’s – and this little baby was just $100L all in. heres some deets:

* fits on any size plot

* small, built to scale – makes an ideal romantic retreat, playhouse or just adorable feature for outdoors landscaping.

* wood siding, with snowy roof, porch, frosted windows with snowflake detail

* two upstairs faux windows – touch the front one’s window frame to light both up for a pretty night time effect.

* front door opens on touch (not lockable)

* linked fireplace – menu-driven, touch logs for audio/flame FX

* chimney outside has optional smoke FX

* includes outdoors lantern, pile of wood decor

* 63 prims (with unlinked door/fireplace), lantern= 4 prims, log pile 6 prims)

* includes snow clump and snow texture to match cabin snow

* other furnishings, landscaping and decor NOT included

* perms = copy/mod/no trans (scripts for faux windows copy only)

It beautifully made inside and out, prims are 73 (that includes the lantern & log pile which are not hard linked) This is only available on the market place but apparently there is one set up at the inworld store for size comparison.

The cheap B is back (B stands for B*tch of course) with an amazing FREEBIE/Dollarbie.

What a way to return to SL with this amazing FREEBIE!

OK first off Helloo cos I’ve been so RL busy it’s been both a blast and knackering, an old English term for very tiring, as I’ve not only been enjoying Christmas and New Year completely I also chose this time of year to start a new job! Now that RL has finally started to calm the F down I’m going to be back inworld from Monday and bargain hunting just like old times.

So the first thing I did when I got inworld was to try to grab some of the December gifts that are still set out and I managed to snag a couple of goodies and then I came across this from Blueberry and it has the OMG factor.

XXXCabin

I have to point out that the snow is all ours but if you want a snowy outlook I’m pretty sure that there will still be plenty of free snow rezzers out there, having said that because I rezzed this house on our land there may just be a snow rezzing but they blended in with what we already had.

XXXCabin3

The main door is on the side and you can see the balcony on the front with sliding doors.

XXXCabin2

You get 3 versions in the pack this is the land one and although it’s prims made my eyes water you get everything you see, the snow base, trees, house and shrubs and they’re all linked so so easy to rezzz and derezz.  You get the exact same layout in the skybox version with I believe a skydome over the top which adds a couple of more prims to the count but you could literally have a winter home all year round in the sky and a summer home on land.

XXXcabin4

You also get an unlandscaped version and so I quickly rezzed this on my platform for some quick snaps as I didn’t want Faith to come inworld and faint at the lack of prims left LOL.  The house on its own comes without any snow so perfect for any woodland setting and any season.

XXXCabin5

I took all this photos in just my nams optimun skin n prim setting and haven’t touched the piccies up at all so you can see the quality.

XXXCabin6

Gorgeous staircase up to an open balcony bedroom area which is big enough for a bed/bath and any other furniture you’d like to set out and I do believe a window that looks out over the front.  You may have to watch your prims as this isn’t lightweight esp the sky and snow version, even the house on its own is still around the 200prims BUT they’re worth it.  A gorgeous build and with them being linked for a lot of people it makes it so easy to create a stunning home with minimum effort and with such gorgeous builds you can keep the indoor decor to the minimum for a classy look.

I knew it! OK so I popped back inworld to LM grab and this time everything rezzed completely, I was having comp issues yesterday, and I knew it that Blueberry isn’t somewhere you would go to buy a new house or some items of decor, Blueberry has some amazing clothes so nice I just grabbed the LM resisted some adorable balloon decor items and TPed out because I’m poor LOL.

Oops I’m not a 100% sure now but this may just be a Dollarbie or you need at least a Linden which is return to you when you “buy” this house..I’m a bit rusty at blogging now LOL.

Theres also this Autumnal bench set filled with lovely poses for females and males, coupled with two planters that have pumpkins and colour change planters. My basket of kittens was just $10L on the MP, rezzable versions plus wearable versions – cute !

CIRCA

Last up for today is the Montane gazebo set, I adore the shape of the chairs – low slung and über comfy looking. They come with a multitude of colours and patterns built right into the menu!

CIRCA NEW! Gazebo

Even the fire pit has poses built-in ! The planters are totally beautiful and very low prim, so you can go to town and scatter them about all over the place. The Montane gazebo is available in other wood tones, so go check it all out at the mainstore. Thanks Cherelle ❤

Renting a home in Second life – Its all Sunshineacid

Rental Home 250L per week Furnished (plus a few prims)

Its been a few weeks since my last exploration of the rental home market, and as I was feeling particularly lazy I looked for furnished accommodation. Look what I found ! Actually I found this same home in a different location but it had just been rented so I lucked out – or so I thought. Luckily for me the owner contacted me and offered to put up an identical home . I know what work that is, even for a small home – but it was done in an hour and I was ready to rock up and enjoy my new place. I cant believe this build by Trompe Loeil – “Shipping Crate Studio Wood” passed me by, it’s totally lovely and cozy. So, the deal is $350L per week, with 25 prims FULLY furnished. I was pleased with the level of decor, infact I went straight out and bought the sweet bed by tarte for myself after sampling its delights. The whole sim is gorgeously decorated, I didn’t feel out of place mooching about. Theres bridges to pause by and some really terrific trees and landscaping. If you’re into photography its a great place to be.

Rental Home 250L per week Bedroom

Here is my bedroom, ever so snuggly and peaceful, the aforementioned bed (comes in a blue pattern also) and various posters and drapes add a delicious shabby ambience . There are heaps of other homes for rent, bigger and around the $500L per week mark. However, this one suited me and my budget down to the ground. You land in a small office that displays the homes up for grabs, just touch the picture of the one you’re interested in and it will plonk a landmark in your inventory to go visit – simple. If you like it, pay the rent box and contact Claire Bricklin for a group tag. (Theres a few other names listed on the notecard you get after renting to get a group tag also)

Rental Home 250L per week Furnished

Lounger in the main space , apologies about the fuzziness on the pillows, SL was hating on me when I took the photo ! I’ve visited at various times of day and night, and it always seems to be running perfectly with no Lag and quiet neighbours. Customer Service is BRILLIANT, I couldn’t ask for more help and I was made to feel at home, really lovely.

Tranquility

Tranquil Estates - the view from my home

Haven’t done a rental feature for a while, so while I had a couple of days downtime I thought Id have a poke about. Came up trumps when I landed at Tranquil Isle Estates and found a lovely quirky little home for just 90L per week ! This is my perfect view, isn’t it beautiful? No other home in sight and open sea , it couldn’t get much better, but it did – after paying the rental box I had a few questions and things I would like to be changed – yes, I suppose I am a bit demanding. Contacted the staff and voilà, group invite, and a rug that I didn’t need removed, later I asked for a few more prims and that was done very quickly also.

Tranquil Estates - Quirky rental 90L per week

This is the home, it’s actually made by Loki Eliot and you can buy it here on the market place. Different from what I generally go for, but something about it ticked my inner beachchild and I had to have it . I got 15 prims and really that does go a long way nowadays with mesh, however I grabbed a few more just so I could make it super-comfy and homely. It did have some furnishings included so I worked around them and made myself a gorgeously cosy space inside, and below a lounger, bathing tub and lots of plants. The bathing tub is from Dench Designs, brilliant little thing for one person, with several anims to wash, and do your hair, I think it was just 40L, but don’t quote me on that.

Tranquil Estates - fishes

What really delighted me was something I found out totally by accident. I fell of my deck and plunged below the water – only to find that the sea bed was also decorated. I walked the perimeter of the entire sim and was greeted by shoals of brightly coloured fish, sharks, jelly fish and lots more. There were sunken buildings and reef tunnels, absolutely lovely.

Tranquil Estates - overview

Overview of  part of the estate, so you can see it is lavishly landscaped. Places are connected by a series of wooden bridges, I spotted monkeys playing and all other sorts of wildlife. The rental homes are nicely spaced and of varying prices for all budgets.

Tranquil Estates - underwater !

I’m really tempted to break out my mermaid outfit or snorkelling gear and have a play around in the water. I think there is just one of the type I rented, but I did spot around the corner in the next cove some cheerful little beach huts, also at 90L per week.

Please note: I have no affiliation to the rental companies that I show, no one knows I will be blogging the home. I pay the rent and see how it goes, if there were any issues I would write about them – if there aren’t any probs, then I wont. Its an open & honest account of my time and experience whilst there.

Roots - old beach cottage - 5 prims - 9 Lindens !

Yet again , I’m down to my last few pennies in SL. Until that is I get my new bucketful of play dosh ! I fancied making a little place on a corner of our sim to relax in, BUT it had to be super cheap and also low in prims, quite the challenge huh? I set to work on the market place and almost in minutes had found this partial mesh old beach house for just 9L. Absolutely perfect, only 5 prims and such a pretty build. You actually get two versions for your 9 L, the old wall effect as shown here, plus a white brick interior style, both aged and both gorgeous.

Roots inspiration table - Roots wood clock - wat next pumkin decor -  F℮u Quiη  old beach cottage 5 prims 9L!

 

I had an idea to make a place to sit while I blogged, somewhere I could look at the view of my land and ponder…then I found this “inspiration table” by Roots, it comes with three stools which are not linked , so you can choose how many you place out. On the table are some documents and diagrams, which if you click on them magically vanish ! Really lovely poses in the stools for both males & females. The clock is also by Roots, Just 2 prims and 9L to buy. My Autumn decor of pumpkin planters and wreath are from the discount section of what next, there’s a bunch of Autumnal stuff for 10L in there to grab.
