Oh La La !

 

I know I know I was only just there last month – but I am off again ! Actually I will be located about 30 minutes outside Paris and I doubt if this time I will venture into the city centre. This is a rest stop and spa time .

I will be away for a week but you know Zan will keep you company with some great finds and things to do.

Do take a peek at Fifty Linden Friday this week – some fantastic items, I snapped up three pairs of the GOS boots and both items from What Next ❤

I’m a Gooseberry – Renting a home in Second Life

Well well well I have certainly struck lucky ! Decided to look around the rental home market and found this absolute gem. I am currently renting a home with Gooseberry Estates. I found them via their market place decor shop and was a little confused when I landed in the shop. However I was helped on my way by one of the estate managers Bren. I was fully expecting to find yet another cookie cutter estate – you know the drill? But I didn’t ! Hooray for Gooseberry and their rethinking of the rental market.

Soooo first decision was a small or large or premium plot – the small was $600L per week with 400 prims. I went with the small plot, which turned out to be pretty BIG really ! Chose a plot, paid the mailbox  et voila – I’m moving in. Now you may have experienced the skyhomes where you can choose from a selection of homes yes? This is similar (but better) land based – they do not de-rez when you leave unlike most of the sky home versions I have encountered. On the reverse of your mail box you’ll find the button that gives you a huge choice of homes – not just any old homes but the latest & greatest homes by all the cool designers on the grid ! They are also landscaped – mmhmm each house rezzes with its own landscaping – gawd a godsend for me. Every plot big or small is water facing and you are permitted to rez a little pier to enjoy the view of the water from.

Currently I am enjoying this Cory Edo house – but I am pretty sure in a few days I will change it out for something else! I have also joined the community group which looks to be pretty busy with events, gifts etc. I also read their gazette over my morning coffee – and learnt a couple of things I didn’t know about SL . There are heaps of cool things about renting on Gooseberry – go and take a look !

Autumn Freebies & Cheapies

Love love love this time of year – all the best people are born in Autumn ! Did a five min trawl of the market place and found all these goodies for free or cheap. The set of candles are super lovely – just 1Li each and the flame goes on and off, perfect for setting a scene in your home and totally free . Halloween sign was a freebie – nice for at the front door or in the garden just 1Li. My fav was the set of wheelbarrows from lacrime dell’anima – you receive four colours, the orange is lovely for this season, resizer script inbuilt so the Li will change – 4 Li as standard. Little jars with Autumn decor is from Mint – at just $1L a steal.

Swing away in shorts (Help!)

Found this darling shorts set on the market place for $1L – a mahoosive Hud is included that gives you a gazillion options for colours (well ok, not millions but loads) This is by Safira and has fits for: Maitreya, Slink & Belleza.

I’m lounging about on a terrific new garden swing by Circa – you can get your paws on this if you swing by (see what I did there) the mainstore – you’ll get 50% discount until the 14th July.

Deets:

“Did you ever want to build your park or parkette area in a city or town setting for SL? Well our Waterton Collection does just that, offering you many pieces to create an expansive outdoor area for the public but versatile enough to use for backyards, patios or even commercial settings. For this release, we have the new garden swings which have a few nice features. These include a series of swings in each pack with a nice smooth rotating motion (dependent on your “frames per second” viewer settings). The swing motion will work regardless of rotation. Also there are 4 colours of woods per set to match the gazebos in the Waterton Collection. You get a swing frame with a 4 wood menu and 4 flower colours for the hanging plant baskets, along with 4 matching wood swings. The seating has 2 positions with male and female sits animations in both, 16 for the ladies and 12 for gents (28 in all). The animations include chats, sits, lounges, and reading. Perfect for parks, parkettes, botanical gardens, personal garden areas, patios, and more. ”

Now, the HELP me bit – Ive given up on Pic Monkey – I dont think its good value for the ££££ – so Im looking around for a good free photo editing thing – I’m trying out Pixlr currently – not 100% about it – anyone got any shout outs I can look at?
