Secret Sale Sunday is happening – go grab your Hud from the inworld location and you’re good to go. Just wear the Hud each Sunday and it will load up with that weeks special buys – simple . This week there is such a fantastic mix of designers and items, everything from fashion, shapes, home décor, cosmetics and more – even some gear for the guys ❤ This week I was looking for a few pieces to pretty up my around my home garden, spotted this from The Home Store, great for creating interest outside and at just 4Li it wont eat up your prims. You get two versions one that has a resizer inside – be careful when you resize as the Li also goes up – the size out of the box is perfect for me and I will place it later today.

Went Crazzzy @ Muniick !

Muniick Wringet set $50L !

I went to Muniick to buy this Vintage Wringer set – but thennn I ventured inside and bought a whole lot more ! The above set is not only very low land impact but its also just $50L today ! I don’t have the sort of home for it ATM , but you know me – that’s bound to change anytime soon!

Muniick Vintage Cigar set $25!

I also bought this set for just $25L ! The ash tray insert is colour change and the cigar box opens and closes, all very low land impact. Stunning pieces to add a little more realism to your space.

 

Muniick Llewellyn Living Room Collection Tables & Decor Bundle A $60L !

Then I saw this collection of décor items @ $60L, there’s more to this set than I’m showing but I’m running out of time ! I fooled around with the tea set and unlinked the shadow then made the whole thing small – word of caution the jug & cups are separate so edit the rest, then edit those ! I got it down from 4Li to 2Li ! Strangely the gorgeous little clock is 3Li – might fiddle with that later too .

Eating prims. (Spendiness & Freebie).

I caved in and bought myself the new Skye beach. It does come with a price tag but each of us are happy to pay for what brings our SL to life and for me it’s landscaping and decor.

Ignore the edge line as this beach is still a work in progress.

So the freebie is obviously the outfit. I deliberately took the picture at this angle not only to show off my new beach but to hide the nasty A** neckline as I had to use my Legacy body to get a good fit.

You get a decent hud of patterns, then one for slogans and the last is for a colour slider. It comes from the Love & Lust shop and TBH I TP’d in and out so quickly as my SL time is short that although I do remember doing a post about this shop not too long ago I don’t know if that older gift or if there are any other gifts out for us so a nice suprise if there is.

Love & Lust.

I was stoked when I saw that Amanda Dench @ Dench Designs had an Easter Hunt ! She always is so generous with her gifts and makes the hunt FUN! The clues are given from the sign at the store entrance – and if you are familiar with the store its quite simple to find the little rabbits. All the gifts are furniture based a fantastic collection of items – absolutely love this lounger and sun shade, each just 1Li and both have an enorrrrmous selection of patterns and fabric colours on touch. This is now on my new beach just ready for the good weather – Thanks Amanda ❤

You’ve got some land- what now?

Over the last few months Zan and I have moved home – primarily to downsize to a more affordable situation. We went from a homestead to half a homestead – it seemed at the time such a mammoth move, starting afresh, choosing new homes and landscaping what land we had.

Before we did anything with the land we both decided to hunt down a new home. Take your time over this, as everything else you do afterwards really depends on what style of home you choose. Check the market place under “Buildings and other structures” then select “residential structures”. Please do go and visit the inworld stores – I cant suggest this enough ! Pretty photos on the market place give you an IDEA of what a build is like, but seeing it in world is totally different. Think about the land impact, and what that leaves you to decorate the interior of the home and landscape the surrounding area.

If you are renting a chunk of land, you can edit the terrain but you may not be able to alter the terrain textures – we’ve found that “land forms” as shown above can be really useful. Zan has these from HMPD (not listed in their MP but in the inworld store) Also Alex Bader of studio-skye does some amazing mesh terrain, rocks, cliffs etc to totally transform your land and add character that a blank chunk of land just does not have. I’m pretty old school and I like to play with editing the land, shaping it, lifting it etc. The most useful tool I have for this is the “Land leveller”, basically its a wooden rectangle that you move around and the land follows – if you’d like a copy just drop me a note!

Once you have decided where to place your home you can then landscape around it. Zan and I have been in SL for a lifetime so over the years we have accumulated a LOT of stuff. We have our favourite designers for plants & trees, rocks, furniture etc and I will list a few below if you’d like to check them out. The key thing is not to rush and buy a ton of items, try and let it evolve and change – you might be surprised with what you come up with ! When I started in SL everything was tiki and beach based!

Moonlit Bay NEW

I’ve just scrapped everything on my side ! Both of us love love love to change homes and I was lured by the Dome home by Rebourne, its been out for a while but I had a hankering for it when it was released. It can be sky or land based, luckily for me Zan agreed to landscape around my new home – looks amazing ! Dont be nervous about editing the shape of your land, add a beach, add hills and fields, cut the plain shape up to create meadows and gardens. We have used a lot more open water between our homes, takes up no prims. Add a few waves et voila !

A short list of places we both love to spend lindens at:

HPMD – land forms & trees

Studio-skye – all types of landscaping

Dench Designs – furniture

3D – Trees and plants

Bazar – furniture

Hisa – homes

Salome Designs – ancient style homes

Trompe L’oeil – Homes

When is a “Freebie” not so free? (Freebie(sss)).

The answer to the title is when you go over to get a freebie and then end up spending a heck of a lot of Lindens but I think anyone who has a home in SL will understand.

The writing desk/bureau is the NEW gift out for us at Nutmeg and I love the fact it’s on a smaller side which is more lady like and also has the benefit that for some it will fit into a smaller sized home.

We all know that there are some stunning decor gifts just at the entrance but did you know there is a 50% SALE going on? I didn’t so I was grateful that my random visit to Nutmeg has meant I’ve been able to treat myself to everything thats in those bags and boxes.

The worst thing is is that the furniture/decor items I bought do not suit the style of house I’m living in at this moment so once I’ve unpacked everything I will be packing it back up again but the opportunity to get a big 50% discount on everything inc the Gacha’s was just too much.

This sale isn’t just for Nutmeg as it includes RKKN and Etiquette which are going to be my next visit.

Nutmeg.

Its Uber Hometown !

Zinnias for Uber Town

A new round of Uber Hometown has begun and Im lucky enough to be able to share with you the items from Zinnias ! This is the “Modern Mayan” collection, available to buy as a fatpack or all the items individually. The interesting thing is its sectional, meaning you can use as much or as little of the couch sections as you wish. Each section is just 5Li or 4Li, the ottoman is only 2 Li – every piece is packed with poses for females, males or couples !

Uber Hometown Zinnias

I just absolutely adore the fabrics used for the cushions and throw. There is also a very modern coffee table with magazines, a Mayan style ceramic pot, rug plus of course the adorable potted plants. (Also a really nice framed print which is not shown) This came out at justtttt the right time for me, Ive just bought a new home and this set is the icing on the cake for it ! Thanks Zinnia ❤
