It’s a HUMPDAY! (Mention of Freebies & Stunning Rentals).

RL STINKS WORSE THAN MY SPORT SOCKS! (Seriously it’s not that bad just lots of niggly things but God knows I love a good moan lol).

It’s continued over into SL as I’ve tried on a New Mina demo and it’s OMG I NEED IT but as yet the non-demo version isn’t even out for us bloggers! Then I went and plonked myself in front of a whole load of Lucky Boards with some damned decent prizes, checked that no one was there with my initial as I will not click on a Lucky Board and take a prize from someone else who would probably appreciate it more and nope no one with my initial so when my “Z” came up I clicked and didn’t get the item sent to me.

Then I started mooching and found a stunning rental sim.

Wowser! This is a rental, ONLY 500Ld a week with a massive 424 prim allowance, I’m assuming that prim allowance doesn’t include all the outside clutter.  Inside is empty so you can to rezz your own furniture but it’s such a cosy little nook you could probably stuff it with furniture and still have prims for a boat or two outside.

I’ve just pointed and clicked and used the sims windlight setting but can you imagine how even nicer this place will be if you wanted to play with the windlight setting you could ramp up the Oomph of this place.

I spotted a massive castle which the rent is now overdue and since it’s empty then I suspect the renter won’t be returning so you could finally be the “King of your very own SL castle” and lord it over the rest of the sim.  This is a top-quality build and although it will be a lot more expensive than this lowly beach shack if the prim allowance is as generous then you will be paying a fair price.

It’s a standard rental system, you will see the rental em board thing on the edge of your mini little island you simply click and pay.  There doesn’t seem to be a rental office but in one of the sim owners profile is the link to their blog and from there you can see all the vacant rentals over their 4 sims.

I’ve logged out now as I really have to do some RL ass-kicking but when I log back inworld I’m going to have a mug of coffee and a clear conscience so I can have a really good look around all 4 sims even if it’s just to LM places for use as backdrops and I think that there is also a smattering of shops on these sims, it was a shop that brought me to this sim in the first place, but they are as blended into the sim as much as the private homes.

I almost forgot the Lucky Boards lol.  You’ve probably already know the shop, Mangual as I recognise the subscribers gifts as having being previously blogged.  There are a lot of Lucky Boards and you don’t need to join a group to win a prize.

Home for rent.

“Cheap” & “Free” again. (Freebies).

I know you’re probably wondering why the snot-nosed Elf, I’m simply marking out my territory.  Basically, when I logged back inworld I popped back to a rental sim that has been around as long and Faith and I and I have a feeling that many years ago Faith actually rented a home here and did a post about it.  I could be wrong but I thought it was worth a mention again.

Actually, I’m not going to say much about it and will give you the LM to one of the rental offices because I bet once you click on the info about the rentals you will TP here and there just to see the variety on offer.  I rented this little “Flamingo Court Hotel Cabin” because at 50Lds and 75prims I just couldn’t resist it but there are sky homes, apartments etc.

As for my snot-nosed friend, I can’t really be bothered to rezz any furniture yet to mark this place out as being mine so I’ve left him house sitting for the moment.

Just outside of my rental is a road and a diner and so I popped over to pull some poses in my new FREE outfit.

This is just 1 of 4 freebies from NyDesign and I do remember blogging one of them previously and the other one is a new one but for me, this was the winner.  A lovely top and short set that comes as separates, many mesh fits and a nice little hud for both the shorts and top.  You will find this and the other GG’s on a wall behind the Lucky Chairs.

PS.  My rental is just behind me and you can see the elf’s hat poking out of the roof.

Well I never, quickie.(Freebies).

I was rummaging in my invent, binning this n that and tucking things away and I came across a folder of plants I previously blogged but in that folder from the same shop was also 2 boxes of “old stuff” and boy am I glad I opened them.

Usually, when stuff is “old” it’s a bit lacking but also they can give you a chuckle however in this box of old stuff I found some very interesting items.I’m just going to show you 1 item and it’s this “Candelabra Wand” and as you can see from my glowing face it’s super bright.  I didn’t rezz a copy to see how many prims it is but laid on a table it will act as a magical lamp or wear it when you’re on a hunt to light your way.  There are 2 other “wands” plus as it happens some Christmassy items TBH I’m just going to leave it to you to unpack have a chuckle, bin what you don’t want but I bet you will keep a few of them.

Don’t worry when you get there and it’s a “Rental Office”.  Lunaria is the name of this rental agency but it’s also a shop so just walk through a couple of rooms and you will find the 2 boxes on the floor in the room which has a lot of Free to join Group Gifts and it’s the plants I’ve previously blogged but there is also clothes and Lucky Boards.

PS. Why the HELL is the whole of the UK blanketed in snow and it don’t even have the slightest dusting of the stuff! I WANT SNOW!

GO GO GO GO GO!(Hunt/Freebies).

This is a 2 parter post and a collab cos Faith is actually going to tell you about the rentals on this sim and I am going to show you just 1 of the super hunt items set out.

Faboo, a shop that specialises in beach wear, has a really BIG hunt going on at the mo.  If I remember correctly 30 items for us girls and 10 for the boys and what you’re looking for is a little pile of sand with a chest on it.  Not only are these easy to spot you do actually get a list packed with the clues as to where to find them and it’s EASY PEASY so don’t let the idea of it being a “hunt” put you off.

They do have an ulterior motive in that they want you to walk around the whole sim to not only score some really nice items but to see ALL of the rentals but that’s the last thing I will say about them because I called Faith over to check this place out and she too was rocked by what she saw, so see her next post for more details about that.

Although I’m just showing you the 1 item out of the 4 I’ve found so far each one of them is a winner.  You get a mix of sizes and fits, some come with Huds and all seem to be wearable straight away so you don’t even need to unpack and unbelievably they’re actually TRANSFERABLE, obviously non-copy as well! How nice so that means if you find something that isn’t to your taste you can pass it on. Spread the joy I say lol.

I’m heading right back now to LM grab for you and then grab as many of the hunt items as I can for myself and what I won’t/can’t use I will pop into my “noob” folder to pass on as I’m pretty sure anyone old or new would be happy to receive these and I’m popping some into my keepers folder as well.

PS You do have to join the Free Faboo group and grab the list from the LM.

Classy Lady Classy Home (Freebie and I wish it was free).

XXXNeva

I’m so sorry I wish this rental home was free but class like this doesn’t come cheap.  So basically I was looking for a background to take a picture of my new Free outfit and since it was so classy I decided to pop over to Neva which I know is packed with some great streets, landscaping, shops and homes.  As I was wandering around looking for the perfect background I stumbled upon a vacancy and in all the years I’ve visited this sim this is the first time I’ve spotted a vacancy because I have a feeling that they rarely come up.  So it gave me free rein to have a good look around and it was fun.  I didn’t rent for a couple of reasons and the main one being our sim is looking particularly stunning now we’ve stripped it right back and packed it full of snow the other being the price tag.  Cost 2500Lds  a week but for that you get a house which is top class, a landscaped sim which is top class and 600 prims which allows you to create your dream home in SL.  I will take more piccies when I return inworld to show you the house and the outside a bit more and like this top picture I will use the Sim Windlight setting.

XXXNeva1

So of course I changed the windlight settings back to Nam so you can see the quality of this freebie.  A one piece of a jacket and silky short dress.  It’s so good such a lovely find and of course FREE which is even better and that pearl necklace is the icing on the cake! I love logging off SL knowing I have something to show you of this quality the next time I get inworld.

XXXNeva2

This comes from Gizza Design and like another shop I know the Freebies/GG’s are actually outside.  I’m not sure where my LM will rezz you but I’m going to try to get one for inside of the shop as this is a big shop packed with some stunningly good quality clothing.  Although heavy on the Autumn/Winter clothes this shop is so big it has everything from bikini’s to woolies.  Sadly just like I’ve had to do with Ebay I basically stopped looking after a while, there are so many tempting thing and I have so little SL and RL money to splash out on myself LOL.

PS of course the hair is a Mina and the skin is PumeC I’m always pointing this out because again I just think these hairs and the skins are some of the best in SL.

This is another sim which is lit and landscaped so well all you need to do is point your camera and press click.

XXXNevahouse

More piccies of the Neva rental.  This is the back of the house and you can clearly see the dock and also you have neighbours to the side and across the water but every house is a quality build and if it wasn’t for the fact my draw distance was playing up I would have taken a picture over the water and the other homes.  with 600 Prims you could decorate your home beautiful and still have prims to rezz a boat!

XXXNevahouse1

This is the front of the house.  This particular home is in front of a nightclub but this like all of the Neva builds is a beautiful classy club.  I don’t know how many sims are owned and under the “Neva” label but there are quite a few of them.  I’ve lived in places where you get no visitors and I’ve lived in places where you constantly have to turf out what me and Faith used to call “Free Sh*ggers” this sim offers you peace and quite but you do get a lot of visitors to the sim and I can only imagine that most visitors like me are the respectful sort who come here for a bit of shopping and picture-taking so if you don’t want to live in solitude then this is perfect for you.

What you can’t see is that in front of your home is a canal there is a whole system of canals, I have to wonder if you lived here and had rezzing rights if you could rezz a little row-boat in the canal and travel around this and the other Neva sims on your boat only LOL.

OK the rental board is actually inside of the garden and I’m pretty sure the LM will take you directly to it and of course this house and it’s situation may not like this 100% but if you drop the Neva management a note I’m pretty sure they will give you a list of any other home that maybe up for rent.

PS I went back to Gizza and this is the second time there was a RL human AV who was waiting to greet you and how do I know that they were RL greeters and not just “Bots”? because when I thanked them for the greeting they replied, this is such a lovely touch and you know if you do get met with a greeter in any shop, and it’s rare to have a RL person doing it, just say “Thanks” it’s nice for you to recognise that someone is doing their job.

Visit Me.(10ld Hoodie).

I was given the heads up from Faith that FATEwear has a 50% sale on and so I rezzed inworld and found myself at one of my favourite shopping/rental sims.  It’s called Neo Machina and I soon as I spotted that there was 2 rentals vacant and since they don’t come up very often I snapped this one up.

crossgreendusk2

For 150 a week you get 75 prims which is more than enough although this particular rental apartment has 2 very large rooms and most of my furniture is old and primmy so I have just rezzed a few of my favourite objects in the corner and left the rest bare.  There is a prim counter in the main rental office and you can prim check there and it turns out I have only 31 prims out.

crossgreendusk3

This is the actual view outside of my apartment which is why I went for this one.  The rentals are all apartments because the ground is for shops and hang out places.

crossgreendusk

I’m not really sure if I will buy anything from the FATEwear sale as I already have so much a Damien Fates clothes I doubt there is nothing I probably don’t have already.  So I’m going to show you this hoodie instead.  Picked it up from the Marketplace and even though it’s quality it is on promo for just 10Lds. There are other items listed for 5-10Lds as well.

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.
