Fun in the sun.

SL decided to let me stay and play and I’m so glad it did.  There is another quality Summer hunt going on at the moment called The Sea Shore Hunt and what you’re looking for is a flip-flop.  Each item cost 45Lds because its top quality stuff and if you check out the Link which also gives you the LMs you can see what it is before you buy so you don’t have to risk your money on something you can’t use.

FunWe can all use a simple deck chair and parasol and since they’re so low primmed you can afford to have them anywhere.  As it happens they are also from EoD but are only available for the Sea Shore Hunt. The chair is unbelievably realistic and it’s got EoDs usual great poses (and an adjust option).

BoostQUICK! because this sharks fin is only going to be out till Saturday.  3 Strap colours and Click on it and you can change the colour of the base of the fin.  Super cute. Comes from Miseria which as it happens I was going to mention soon  because check out the cute hair ribbon, it comes from the Gacha right outside of Miseria’s front door which as it happens is exactly where you will find the shark’s fin. 50Lds for each.

1,2,3

Does this not look inviting? I have found that when someone spends time and money-making their shop/store look great then the stuff they sell will be great. This is Ice (Icewood Bayn) shop called EoD (End Of Daze) and yes I blog them a lot because I love his stuff.  Clean, uncluttered, unfussy, excellent texturing, low primmed, low price and on and on.  Less is more with his designs.

ShopThe 1,2,3 of the title is how easy it was to rezz his brand new range of kitchens.

WinFirst rezz the rezzer and as you can see it has been made idiot proof so you can simple place it where exactly you want your kitchen to fit.

Win3

Then rezz.  Because it’s clearly marked on the floor where the fronts are it just makes it easy and everything is locked into place just in case you do need to move it and then once happy one click to finish and the rezzer is removed and you end up with this.  A complete ready to go kitchen.

Comes with great single and couple poses, although as a singleton I’ve not been able to check the couples one but I am happy to assume they’re going to be just as great and a choice of colours.  The green is shown the red is more vibrant and the white is emm white.  However in SL I am almost a midget so my feet, even in my tallest heels, are still floating a bit off the floor with the poses.  I did try to find a normal sized AV(Faith is also a midget she just doesn’t admit to it) but I couldn’t.  You could if your on the small size like me slightly lower the kitchen to no ill effect on the overall appearance as there is a kickboard BUTS I’m pretty sure for you normal sized AVs this is a perfect fit.   Having said all that it’s hardly a major thing esp since the AOs are pretty smooth and cool.

win8The kitchen on its own is 17 prims and another for all the extras comes to another 10 prims. However when you stand and wash dishes the sink miraculously appear and when you use the cooker you get a pan to fry or a pot to stir.

utensilI have to show you all the accessories which are rezzed with it but are not joined so you can use them, move them or lose them but since they are so low primmed and so detailed I’d just leave them.

Utensil2Zoomed in on the close up so you can see the detail AND I’ve not blurred this picture it was take in my fav normal setting,  nams optimal skin and prim, so you can see how realistic these things look.  That knife block is only 1 prim and the scales are only 2!

I’m not sure how I’ve missed this before but if you’re a Group Member then not only do you get regular monthly group gifts but a discount on your purchase.  So make sure to wear your tag and click the prominent Group label next to everything in the shop.

The Who’s Who! (Home, Clothes, Jewels, Free Stuff & Me!)

I managed to squeeze my AV onto the newly open The Home Show sim and managed to drool my way though 3 shops before the lag killed me.  WOW the whole place is a who’s who of all the best new, old, classic and fresh in SL   Happily one of the 3 shops I managed to lag my way through was EoD (End of Daze) and not only that but Ice (icewood.bayn) was so kind to send out a sample of his wares so that cheered me up.

EoDHerb cutters, scythes, scales and lamp.  Each item is only 1 prim and you get a choice of new and old in the pack but however the lamp is 3 prims.  You get 2 versions one with the handle up and the other the handle down. These are slightly bigger lamp which means they will look great stood on a bench but will equally be suitable to hang from rafters to be a room light.  Nice little touch is when you click off the light you get a little puff of smoke.  When I managed to get back to  The Home Show my first stop will be EoD again because I was surprised to find that  there was a few items which have broken the EoD mould which is clean, retro, unfussy etc and are almost RP items. I spotted a Blacksmith set which seems to include everything you would need from the anvil itself to a very detailed grinding wheel which is a tiny 2 prims for such a detailed item and a load of tools and even the gold and silver bars.  Most unexpected.

ScalesPopping in this scale as it’s a PRIM, 1 single prim (the “baggie” is mine and not inc).  As I said in a previous post sometimes it’s lovely to get ready made and fully accessories furnishing but sometimes it’s great to get as many great 1 prim items which you can scatter about at random to fill a home with.  The greenhouse is also an EoD which I have blogged before because it’s big, packed with shelving and only 9 prims and the big shelving unit on its own is only 2 Prims so if you need somewhere to shove your stuff you might want to check it out as well.

ShawlLooks like the Paradisis sale is still one and this sexy undies set(Brin De Foile) which incs 2 bra, panties, 2 stocking and all layers etc is still a low 40Lds….couldn’t resisit and and I’ve now bought the wine and white set.  The fur stole comes from one of those little shops you stumble upon called Laville and it’s in a rather random and interesting sim with odds n sods of shops.  I  first picked up the free fur gloves and since I was so impressed with them I decided to splash out and buy the  fur stole.  Now you have a choice of 2 shades for 80Lds or the fat pack of .. for 140Lds and of course you know me I got the Fat Pack.  Not only can you change the colour of the fur but also the ribbon.  It’s Sculptie not mesh.

GlovesMy excuse for being braless is that the bra is brown and you couldn’t see the gloves that well.  Sometimes when the Freebie is of good quality then you know you can take a risk on the rest of the clothes which don’t come with demos because they’re not mesh.  The gloves are FREE and has the same fur texturing on the cuffs as the shawl so you can check that out at the same time grabbing some very nice fashion accessories. Jewels Free Gems.  I have no idea of how I ended up in Lazuri but couldn’t believe the Group Gift offer (Free to Join).  Encrusted with rubies, diamonds and pearl with an  added bonus of a menu which allows you to resize and change stones and shinyness etc.  You get the whole set, earrings, choker and 2 bracelets. Now that I’ve popped back to get the LM I used the TP Board and popped up to the discount section which has some pretty sweet deals and just before I caved in and bought some chunky earrings I found some free ones. Not had a change to take a photo but they’re pretty stunning.  All shop quality and real treats.

PouffeGratuitous shot here.  The pouffe is an EoD one from the …but I was going to show you the brown one first because the colouring is an amazing chestnut-brown.  Old leather worn into a patina of age and love but I had rezzed this red one for these photos and decided I liked this shot so I would use it.

Water Sports

SwollenCouple of picture rules broken here.  We don’t normally use wide pictures but I had to squeeze the lot in because how sexy is this lot of water crafts.  The boat I have blogged before but I’ll give you a brief description.  Comes from MLCC (Motor Loon Custom Cycles) and this model is called Looneta, amazing attention to details, comfortable kitchen, living room, bedroom, work desk, even a toiler and all  packed with poses, easy to use texture editing pack and all of that for a tiny 31 prims.  I’m not a boating person but since I bought this it’s been rezzed on my land and will be remaining there for as long as I have water.  If your tempted then there is a whole lot of photos of this boat on my Flickr and I’ll pop the link down on the bottom but this is a boat you have to see in SL in person to see how cool it is.

Swollen1WEEEEE.  Another photo rule bent here.  Usually we like to show the items as clearly as possible but I just wanna have fun. 2 Different styles of  Jet Skis both have a menu but you have to be standing on it to operate the menu which allows you to change the speed and colour of your craft. Long gone are the days when land and water vehicles  were so unwieldly that you would spend most of your time crashing but since they come from EoD (End Of Daze) then you wouldn’t really expect them to crash and I’ve had a lovely time pottering around on them.  Perfectly proportioned, sleek, easy to handle, low prim.  Both Vs1 and V2 come with a menu choice of 6 colours, 2 sits, a choice of speed.  The Jet Skis are on the wall outside but you must pop in to check out the furniture n stuff cos it’s all great quality, slim, unfussy, well textured and attractive.

Now for the OMG factor because I tried to find a sim to ride the jet skis over to check out how well they did on sim crossing and sorry I didn’t find a suitable area to try it out but what I did find was LOADS of boating sims packed with the all the boats from Motor Loon.  Looks like I’m not the only one in love with his qualities.

Challenging Times

The Challenge  [bauwerk] California Bungalow Night Stand

I have a few more pieces to share with you from this months round of The Challenge. The theme is Californian Bungalow…lets get the party started with this stylish night stand from  [bauwerk]. Despite being called a night stand, which  it is..it also makes a really cool side table . I’m using it in my lounge at home and the lamp casts a cozy glow for a great chilled atmosphere…in the box you’ll find not only this version with everything on (books,vase etc) but also a plain version, and the decor items separate. Brilliant if you want to create your own unique look.

The Challenge L&K Californian bungalow

Also in this months round is L & K Prefabs, they have made this stunning bungalow. YES, a whole home ! Deep purple with a blueish hue on the outside, the interior is more organic in tone. You also get a choice of version in the box, with or without baked shadows…oh AND…nifty little feature is the drapes on the interior doors have a control unit by them that offers a choice of drapes & glass…I totally loved that. I placed some of the set from Cleo Design on the porch..just looked SO right there ! Low prim and totally mesh …go see it.

The Challenge End of Daze dining at home 11 prims total

Last for today is the “Dinner at Home” set from End Of Daze…Ive come to love EoD’s low prim style, and this is no disappointment. An incredible 11 prims for the whole set *gasp*, each chair is just 2 prims, the table only 3 prims, and I have to say, the poses in the chairs are soooo fab ! New round of The Challenge begins on the 30th of April…I cant wait !

How Low Can You Go! (oops My Bad)

Julia clean useGreat timing as I had just been to Creative Decay to snag all the Group Gifts, freebies and cheapos when Evhalyn Serpente sent out a group notice asking for someone to blog her latest creation from Creative Decay, so knowing the quality of her builds I quickly responded and she sent me this.  The home is called  Lofted Solitude and has been specifically designed to not only sit on a plot of 512 plot (or bigger) but with so much designing and yet so few prims! a total of 23 prims  means that those on a restricted prim allowance can not only have a stylish home but also free up a lot more prims to decorate.

Julia Clean1The use of split levels, slotted partitions, built-in shelving, glass wall and cutouts has made this a very detailed home and again all of this for 23Prims even a door to a patio area.  This is intended for land, nothing to stop you placing it in the sky of course, and the outside of the home is also detailed to look less box like.Julia Clean11The neutral colours of grey/beige etc allow you to splash the colour about.  The 2 hanging chairs in the background come with the home but they are extra prims but pretty good AOs so if you can spare the prims you will love them.  I do like my photos but I have to say I don’t think I’m showing how big this home really looks inworld so trust me it’s wide and long and a very generous size. Comes in a very hand Rez box which is easy to use.

Not only must you check out her inworld shop because she has some great group gifts, some freebies and some cheapies but also the demo area which I remember so well because Faith and I spent quite a while there not long ago looking at all of her homes and we both loved so many of them we couldn’t make up our minds which one we liked most and ended up buying nothing as weird as that sounds.  Lovely low primmed, well textured, modern but not harsh homes.

Non Clean1This is one of the Group Gifts I’ve managed to unpack (joining the group NOT  free, it is 99Lds) and it suits it’s name Darth. Big and scary and yet something which is begging to be created into a home.

Snapshot_014I’m stood about a third of the way in when I took this photo and I’ve placed a chair so you can get some sort of perspective. The 2 line are the door to the final room which is glassed and a click on the class will make it either trans or opaque.  The only other home I managed to unpack was the 20Lds crime scene home.  Lots of room, space, dingy, dirty and  a great prop for RPing.

I can also see that Creative Decay have sign boards up for the Him and Her Hunt which starts on the 16th and 2 lucky boards, can’t get much better than that.

TreeAnd finally something a bit different.  I was rummaging in my invent for items to furnish the Lofted Solitude home and came across this from one of my Fav shops, End of Daze.  They not only do great retro, modern clean well textured  furnishings and accessories  but they have a whole selection of wall decals of which this is one.  I’ve slapped it on a bare bit of wall and what a lovely wall filler for only a prim it is.  Big with muted colours it looks almost 3D.

SORRY I made a mistake because it turns out that it is 99Lds to join Creative Designs.  Honestly if you can spare it then the freebies and discount you can get are worth it BUT the Mini VIP IS a Freebie for all (Phew my ass is saved).

Kiss My A:S:S

New Group Gift from A:S:S and I love it’s cream and soft teal colouring.  Retro cool  and BIG. It is partitioned so if you wanted to set out a typical layout ie kitchen, bedroom, living area then it’s perfect but of course it would also make a great looking shop if that’s what your after.  The ornamental pool in the centre is a lovely feature.  50Prims in total.

Round1

Some people may think this is more shop like than sky home and I say “your wrong” it’s both and I think this is so Unisexed as well.

ASSESI took the first photo is normal midday setting and the second in sunset just to show you that even without the use of Windlight you can get a lot of atmosphere into your home/shop.  You can also see that you get plently of windows to be able to look out of.

OK the nitty gritty (old English expression) is it’s FREE but only to group members and thats not free but I have recieved so much stuff from group gifts that the initial cost has been more than repaid.  If you don’t want to join the group still check out not only their great clothes/jewelry but their great skyhomes.  Very reasonably priced and all as great a quality as this one. TP to the demo area once you’ve checked out A:S:S’s great clothes, jewelry and make up first.

eoDJust as I was doing the write up for the A:S:S skybox I recieved this off  Ice (Icewood.Bayn) who owns EoD (End Of Daze).  I was planning to set out a load of EoD furniture so you could see how perfectly it looks and then I thought “Meh” and just left it as it is.  In a way I think what you see shows off how big this skyhome is.  It’s texturing and colouring is a perfect match not only for your EoD items but anything you wish to use.  All items shown are from EoD and if it’s been a while since you’ve been there it’s a newer bigger and better shop for showing off the goodies and a new Landmark to match.

EoD1Again just like the first skyhome the first picture is taken in normal SL midday and the second either sunset or sunrise (sorry can’t remember which) and how warm and lovely does it look.  This is take from the other side of the room so you can see the picture windows with a city view.  Some lovely little details such a sockets and beams and a low 22Prims!
