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).


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.


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.


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.


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!


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

A place of your own (No.2)

60L rental home - beach cabin scene

I’ve decided to keep with this feature, and will try to blog a place every couple of weeks. If any of you find a unique, interesting rental home that you think might be worth blogging about please let me know! Anywayyy After 4 hours of trawling around SL, I eventually ended up at “60L rentals”. Thats exactly what it is, a home for 60L per week, it’s what it says on the tin kinda deal! However, the clever thing is you don’t have to choose one home – oh no – you actually get a choice of seventeen ! I stumped up 60L and got my slice of home-sweet-home, then played around with it for an hour. Above is the beach scene I really liked, cabin with adult bed, rockers, locking doors, and an adult daybed. Soft sounds of ocean waves (which I can’t find a way to turn off!), and swirling water effects all around.

60L rental home - Set up panel

Got tired of that after a while so took a look at the other options from the board above. This board is important if you rent here. Its your security, rent box and multi-scene changer thinger. You are located high up in the sky in your own dome, then you select from the pop up menu what home you’d like to rez – note- when you come back to your home from a period away, just the dome is there, it’s not permanent – no worries though, just select it again from the board. The padlock is your security, I stupidly didn’t bother with the helpful notecard given to me upon renting (duh) and came home to find a couple exploring my home , my own fault. Read the notecard, set it up so only I can enter, everyone else is auto ejected – nice !

60L rental home - mesh apartment

Obviously as there is a  Barnesworth Anubis build in the options I chose that next (fangirl!) Each home has a good bed with adult and PG animations, plus in some cases menu driven couches, daybed and sun loungers. Its worth noting that you do get a small prim allowance of ten prims. Enough for shopping bags and perhaps the odd personal item you might want to keep out from time to time.

60L rental home - mesh apartment scene

Theres such a big choice of home styles, from Gorean camp, xxx urban role play, apartments,forests. At this price point it would also make an ideal place to take blog photos (as Zan uses up SO many prims at home I can never rez my own photo scene bubble!) This is a budget operation but with quality options, if you’re a high maintenance type of renter who needs lots of assistance it might not work for you so well, BUT if you READ THE HELP NOTE CARDS – you would be fine !

60L rental home - teleport panel in office

Upon arrival at the office you’ll find this type of board, no need to choose they are all the same btw. Utilise the teleport button, kindly highlighted in BRIGHT yellow and go up to the dome, pay the rent box et voilà, you’re ready to roll. The group invitation arrives straight away, make sure you grab it and accept or you wont be able to set your home position and rez items. I’ve been in this rental for a couple of days now and apart from neglecting to set up my security properly and having uninvited guests, its been quiet and peaceful. My nearest neighbours seem to be about 600m away, and the sim isn’t remotely laggy. The intan dance system is a nice touch for couples and friends and I have actually enjoyed my “little getaway” place.
