Somewhere to call home (inc a Freebie).

OK first the freebie before I start to wax lyrical about a lovely new hangout place I’ve found.

XXXRoseshoes

Pure Poison again, I only did a post about them last week but since they now have a New GG out I thought why not.  The GG’s are in the Gacha Machine in the entrance, do not make a mistake and pay lindens for the Gacha Machine next to it but don’t worry they’re clearly marked as to which is the Group Gacha and which isn’t.  Remember though the amazing people at Pure Poison have ALL of the old GG Gacha’s in the courtyard in the middle of the shop, easy to find and lots of shoes of different styles to be found.  Make sure to check out the full priced stock and maybe spend some Lindens, we all love a bargain but shop owners also have tier fees/Linden Lab Fee’s etc that need to be paid and sometimes there may even be a few Lindens left over from those expenses which they can use for themselves.

Once I’d grabbed the shoes I decided to check out an old LM and that shop has now gone and has been replaced with this lovely, beautiful and inviting Cafe.

XXXRoseue

I did play with the piccie but the Windlight setting has already been set to create a soft and relaxing atmosphere.

XXXRose2

Lots of seating area’s and the roof is decorated with comfy sofas, tables etc and from there you have a brilliant view of the whole sim which  from my first glance is purely a residential sim but the homes are few and far between.  When I log back inworld I will be having a good mooch around to see what other “posing” potential this place has but because I’m a good girl I won’t be going into anyones home, but I will be checking to see if this is a rental sim or not.

You don’t have to walk far from the cafe to find lovely private places, this little area is just down some steps from the cafe.

A perfect place for practising your photography it’s been so beautifully laid out and the windlight setting is so nice that anyone can zoom, click and create a piece of art.

PS the tree’s are meant to look like that lol they’re dead tree’s and not poor rendering.

Look Away Faith!

I was checking out some old LMs for a place to take some pictures and I stumbled on this absolutely simple and yet stunning rental sim.

beach20

The sim  is called Baja Norte and it’s a blogger, moocher, beach lover, renters delight.  I haven’t rented a property here because for a small fee of 250Lds you can join the Baja Norte group and not only use the stunning decor items but also rezz your own props and poses if you feel the need to.   It would be good to join as the fee which is a one off helps towards this great sim but it’s not compulsory as you are free to use the facilities even if you’re not a group member.

Obviously it goes without saying if you do decide to join the group so you can rezz poses and props to watch the prims! and OMG clean up after yourself! Faith and I used to run a very successful and enjoyable rental sim but the cleaning up of other people’s prims was a pain in the bum.

beach220

Although there is more than enough places for people just to sit and chat and chill  and so you may never need or want to rezz anything.

Beach420

I had a mooch around the homes the note that is  sent out does ask you not to enter a rented property which goes without saying but there are some vacancies esp the ones on the top of the hill.  At 250 a week these are bargain prices homes and although you only get 50Prims you will just not need them at all.  The whole sim is your playground and all you need is a few prims for some personal items.

beach620

Now I’m not a 100% sure if all of the homes come furnished already I’m pretty sure this was one of the Vacant homes and this is the standard to expect, it’s all quality items.  I’ll be back and I’ll have a recheck.

beach320

All these photos were taken in the sims own Windlight setting which is subtle moody and beachy at the same time, you of course can use whatever setting you want.

As I said the reason I’m not going to rent a home here is because I’m going to join the Baja Norte group and  now since our own sim is very much Autumnal and grassy I  have somewhere to flash the flesh and surf. This is a busy sim with plenty of people wandering, sitting and probably mugging for the camera and yet it is so quiet and people are just having a relaxing and fun time.  I sat on a log with my new log and even though there was 2 male AVs near to me we just sat and did our own thing.  If I didn’t rent my own sim I’d move here  and I know fine well Faith would also in a heartbeat.

Must mention the brilliant person behind all of this because she won’t be making money from the rentals here as she’s asking for so little so basically she’s done this just for the joy of giving to people in SL.  Lauren Bentham is her name and her surname might be familiar to a lot of people because she’s the owner of Bentham Manor and more.  I can’t believe that high is the sky is a packed shop/forest/woodland/build of spooky and ethereal items to buy for your home although most things are set out in a themed setting ie a spooky woodland most of what you see is for sale but check out her Flickr link as a picture shows you much better than I can write.

Defeated (freebies n stuff).

Quit

I have a migraine, just a mild one and until the pain killers kick in I’m basically failing to get my act together and make a semi decent picture which is making my poor head even worse so you’re going to have to put up with this one of me jumping in frustration (as it happens I will be mentioning the pouffe soon).

Check out my previous post and you can see the sweet jumper and skirt which are group gifts from Moon Amore.  As always when visiting new shops I walk outside to check out if there is any other nice shops there and I’m so glad I did.  This is a small and well landscaped shopping area, small shops set in a garden, watery setting with lots of sitting areas to chat with friends or use for poses.  I’m so “off” today I couldn’t even take a picture of the scenery!  I know you can’t really see what it’s like in the picture that I’ve used but the dress I am wearing which is a simple spring patterned mesh dress is a Dollarbie from the shop next to Moon Amore.   I’m also wearing a really excellent camera, no poses in it, but you get different sizes, s/m/l etc and only 15Lds! I’ve given the LM for that shop as well even though all LMs are actually in the same location.  You can get the fat pack of all the cameras for only 50Lds.

Icing on the cake is there is also a Hunt going on.  So easy peasy because you’re looking for sunken chests and where do you find a sunken chest? in the water of course.  Easiest hunt ever and some real sweet prizes.  The “hunt board” LM takes you to the board where you can see exactly what you can win and there are some goodies and also a real nice mix, a skirt, cuddly octopus, owl bag, poses, tattoo’s etc so basically something for everyone.

Meandering Pays

SkirtSeem to spend most of my time rushing from one special offer to another but occasionally meandering really pays off.  I popped to a lovely, new to me, shopping sim called Raspberry City.  Nice open shops, simple and well laid out streets (massive amount of pose potential) a bar, cafe and this cute little waterside cafe for you to pose to your heart’s content.  There is a new furniture shop there that looks very interesting so much so that I’ve joined it’s inworld group before the shop has even opened for business, so I’m hoping to bring you some fresh new decor items soon. Then I found La petite fleur.  A small shop with some lovely simple to wear mesh clothes and this sweet little outfit of mesh wrap over skirt and jumper which is only 25Lds!  Wear separately or together and she,YUKI (yukineko.jewell), has included all the Alphas you would need to wear it as seperates.  It’s just plain lovely and so easy to wear.  A choice of colours available as well all in suitable mute tones.  She has priced her clothes to make them so affordable and yet not skimped on the quality.

NOM use

And then I went looking at her main store and scored so many free shop quality gifts from them and you don’t even have to be in their group so I indulged myself.  Not that a 100Lds for this is a big expense plus it comes with a colour changing hud which allows you to change the colour of the collar, top and bottom, but this is a complete dress and not 3 seperates.   The combination is endless.  All in light pastel shades

She also has some Gatchas out and they “gotcha” me because there is an interesting chair (great poses) which is half a car and some other items well worth the few Lindens they cost.  FUN.

The Garden

what next garden cafe - for The Garden

ohmaiiiii lawd…Zan and I really got our knickers in a twist over this new event ! It’s The Garden” bought to us by a new event company called The Liaison Collaborative. (They also do one called The Boutique for clothing) Sooooo last night I braved the crowds and bagged myself the {what next} garden cafe ! Id been eagerly awaiting its release from the flickr preview. Have to say I was totally smitten and SO pleased to see it came with two options for buying. You can get the whole shebang that includes stool, drinks dispensers, table etc…or as I did…buy just the basic van.

what next garden cafe - for The Garden event

When I say “basic”, it’s not at all. The van is kitted out internally with many poses , a sink, stove, it’s really well finished ! It’s also got colour change options for the lower part of the van and the awning ! You”ll adore the poses too…sits up to four I seem to recall (please note some poses only come into play when there’s more than one person using it) I have soooo much in the way of tables & chairs, I furnished the outside with my messy old inventory…love it !

Alouette Garden Party set - 349L complete with decor

Another item I snapped up is this Garden Party set by  Alouette. I had to check several times on the price, I couldn’t believe it was just 349L for the WHOLE thing ! Yes,yes,yes…everything you see is in the box and boy-oh-boy is it ever low in prims…I think 21 for the complete set up, you can also rez a version without the place settings, cake stand etc…but who would wanna miss out on the cuteness !

Alouette  Garden Party decor detail

The dear little box style stools have some lovely poses in, some for the gals , some for the guys…unmissable ! Dont forget to wander outside also, there’s some glorious landscaping items by Barnesworth Anubis (that Zan snatched up pretty fast and should be showing you later yay!)

Homes For The Homeless

HouseSome big changes are happening to the place where I live in SL  which means I’ve having to do some serious packing up of stuff.  Included in all of this stuff was my studio so I rezzed one of my many sky homes and as I was taking some, very poor photos of my new skin, I realized how pretty the sky home was.  So I gave up trying to take a decent skin picture and dragged on some clothes and TPed to where I got it from and it’s gone.  What I did find was a charming well stocked cafe, great for anyone needing a place for photos or a meeting place but also this.

House1Now I have to confess that in RL I’m running around like a headless chicken but I so wanted to get these posted that I’ve sorta mixed and matched the 3 homes and I’m a bit short on the actual prim count but each is well under 50Prims.

House111This is the second land house and it again has some lovely details from the outside decking to the net curtain.

House3Thats me stood in the corner.  I like to put myself in the pictures sometimes so people can get a scale of the item and you can see that this is a good size.  Plenty of indoor space with decking outside.  Open and airy perfect for the beach.

House 11Just found this one of it taken from outside, sorry it’s a bad photo but at least you again with the help of my AV can see you get a lot of house for your money.

Sky11

This is a sky home and it’s so low primmed you will be able to indulge in that home in the sky.

Sky1

Even though this is intended for the sky and has no doors they haven’t stinted on the windows so have it low enough and have fun with your Windlight and even though your in the sky you will be able to look out on some lovely sky.

Apart from the skyhome each comes with open and breezy doors and plenty of decking, shabby chic wall paper, net cutains, sun bleached wood, exposed brickwork.  Price wise at 50Lds each for the land homes and a mere 25lds for the sky be like me and grab the lot of them.  LM takes you to the lovely cafe and you can see these on the wall but even better you can then TP to the demo area to check them out before you buy them.

Next post will be of not only the fabulous skin but the other goodies I managed to score.  All I need is for RL to calm down.
