Rocking the day away

Cleo Design The Challenge - Rocking chair NEW!

I’m a sucker for a great rocking chair, I seriously own SO many ! The one above is new from Cleo Design and its won a place in my home already! It has both male and female poses and comes in a selection of homey patterns and colours. I plumped for the beige one as it fitted in with my bedroom décor so very well. I really like the wood on it, it looks a little worn as if someone has enjoyed a peaceful sit in it for some years. Touch the foot part of the chair for the rocking motion btw. Cleom also has some rather luxurious chairs out for this round of The Challenge and also a retro styled cabinet with opening doors, get your skates on a grab some pretties!

Lingerie by

As you might be able to see I am also wearing some new lingerie woot! I can’t stop buying things for my new Slink Physique body and when I saw this sweet set by chocolate atelier (called  fragile love) I just had to have it. It’s currently on offer at The Cosmopolitan Sale room event – just 70L ! In the box are also appliers for Lolas bewbs, phat azz and of course old-fashioned clothing layers.

Renting a Home in Second Life (Part 4)

Fairy Unique Rental -House by Culrpit

I love doing these rental posts – it’s a real treat to scoot about looking at homes & spaces. My fourth port of call was Fairy Unique Rentals, only a couple of vacancies when I arrived so I used the rental board to teleport up to them. After uhmming & ahhing, because they were all SO pretty, I chose this one above. It’s really roomy and spacious, with a wrap around balcony downstairs, a conservatory and a brilliantly enormous bedroom area. (This home is made by Culprit btw , link below if you wanna buy one – its called Dragonfly cottage) I stumped up the rent for a week, read the notecard that I was given and waited for a group invite. The group joiner bot thinger was on strike I think, so I dropped the landlady a note – next day I got the invite AND she added my lost day back onto my remaining time – sweet ! The rental layout is unusual and I liked it. Each home is on its own grassy platform thats suspended in the sky, abundantly decorated with gorgeous flowers and plants. You also get 150 prims for your own gear. When you pay the rental board down at the store level , it’s automatically covered up , so no one should really bother you. I didn’t notice a way to lock the doors and to be honest I would’ve preferred that option , as the rental agreement says “no security orbs”. I know I know privacy isn’t really applicable in Second Life, unless you own your own Sim etc…but I do like to lock my doors, it just makes me feel better?! Cant say I’ve been bothered at all, and I’ve hung out decorating for the last three days.

Fairy Unique Rentals collage

I popped over to Cleo Design and nabbed a few treats for my new space , the couch I’m sat on is sooper cozy (and has pattern change options) I seem to recall it was just 55L ! As you can see above the house also has a large conservatory space, it’s just begging for some benches and plants. The rent per week for this home is a very low 250L, I think, but I’m not sure that all the homes are around this price point. Big thank you to Happyholly Grigges who is the land owner and landlady , such a lovely welcome ❤

The Challenge – its the wild wild west !

The Challenge

New month, new Challenge, this months theme is “The wild wild West” –  yeeehaw!  I was dead impressed with this build by [hate this], its pretty clever and comes with a HUD that enables you to change the signage, the wood colour and the shade of the plaster . Also included are some decor items such as a ladder, cactus plant,barrels, coffins, even a counter for inside. Very atmospheric ! Its worth noting, that not only do you get the store in mesh materials ready, but for each piece you also get the option in mesh NOT materials ready – now I’m no expert, and why you’d want it not materials ready I don’t know – but CHOICE is good right?! Zan found the horses I’ve got mooching about at United Inshcon, absolutely marvellous and only 1 prim, they also make sounds which you can opt out of if you find them irritating.

Moving inside the cabin, I used the megastuff hunt prize from Cleo Design (two comfy chairs and sideboard previously blogged) with the side table and lanterns from Potomac to create a cozy place by the window. All of these items wont eat up your prims and are so worth the hunt to find them ! (All prizes are only 1L btw)

The Challenge – plus Megastuff hunt

The Challenge - Sways

More from The Challenge, and Sway’s has his fantastical little build and fencing up for grabs. It’s the Andersen half timbered summer-house. Low on prims and high on style. Such a darling little cabin, perfect for your springtime and Summer gardens, maybe a little hideaway for you and your friends. Inside is really a blank canvas, so gussy it up, go rustic or retro, whatever you fancy. The fencing for it is superb, I’m a bit of an expert on fencing after having scoured SL for some last year.

The Challenge Sway's,Sickly sweet megastuff hunt- SFD group gift dress FREE

Couldn’t resist sitting outside, as it was such a lovely day yesterday. A few woolly friends joined me as I perched on this stool and table set from Sickly Sweet. Quite shabby chic and feminine with a handful of lovely poses in the seat. This is their gift in the mega-stuff hunt, and one I shall be holding onto. Check out the rest of the store while you’re there, definitely one to keep an eye on, as I spotted some unique and desirable pieces I shall be going back to ponder on.

The Challenge hate this -,Cleo Design megastuff hunt 1L

Inside my Andersen house I found it spacious enough to place a couple of pieces that have stolen my heart. The chair (there are two in the box),vase of sakura blossom and the chest of drawers are all from Cleo Design. This is the gift for the Mega-stuff Hunt and quite the find. As is usual with Cleo Design, you’re richly spoilt with poses for both males & females, including some that rez props as above. I just fell in love with the colours of wood on the chest of drawers, so quaint ! I teamed the drawers up with this wooden belling deer wall decor panel from [hatethis], there are two versions, a more natural toned wood and this one that fitted so well with my theme.  (Is it me or does this look really really art deco?)
