Upgrade your living space – Dollarbies

Found a new-to-me designer called The Tinsmith. Grabbed up these two gorgeous skyhomes , at just $1 why not! This home is only 20Li – let that just sink in for a moment. Yes 20Li, two floors, little reading nook, lighting, 100% mesh.

The textures are very sleek and modern and would lend to some great interior design. Light and airy fresh and bright.

In contrast is this sky home from the same designer with light wooden floors, wooden beams in the living space and 3 spacious bedrooms !

This one is only 29Li complete. The bedrooms are great sizes, or perhaps use one as a bathroom? I was mentally working out where I would place my gear as I walked round – so pretty and warm. The Tinsmith has just six homes for sale and all are $1L .

Renting a home in Second Life (Part 6)

Glamdiosa Appartments - exterior

I happened upon this rental company yesterday and despite not being incredibly keen on apartment living, I decided to give it a go. There are two sims linked together, one for the rentals a collection of VERY ritzy huge homes and one apartment block, the other sim houses the owners rather nice fashion store. I’m a bit broke so I decided to go and view the apartments, boy I was in for a surprise! I walked to the lobby area and pressed the button for a lift, which promptly arrived, sat in it and chose the floor I wanted to go too. The penthouse was already taken (and a bit more expensive to rent) So I hopped in and out of the lift until I found an apartment I fancied. They are all pretty much decorated identically, just differing colours of lounge suite from what I saw. Ohmai gosh! They are suuuper luxurious – fully furnished, great poses and animations , it really felt posh.

Nice touches inside the spacious rooms, a lovely piano to play, coffee table with rezzable treats, and a balcony complete with breakfast table. You do also get a prim allowance but seriously, I couldn’t think of a single thing that I needed to rez – everything has been thought of for you. Perhaps a photo or two though.

Glamdiosa Appartments - bathroom

The bathroom is just gorgeous, shower for singles or couples, adult & PG animations, working toilet, sinks etc, very lush. It’s a bit like living in a very upscale hotel. The views are actually pretty good, every now and then for some reason fireworks start outside – lovely to watch and they don’t seem to impact on the sims performance at all.

Glamdiosa Appartments - bedroom

The bed room is vast, impressive bed with a large menu, roaring fire and working lamps. All the windows are touch tinted, which is pretty handy. All this for 450L per week – what’s the downside? Nothing if you like to live close to other people. I’m not sure how your private bedroom antics would pan out with someone below or above you – that’s a drawback for me. However, my neighbour very politely introduced herself, which was lovely and surprising – I rarely talk to anyone in SL these days, and it was just so nice to chat and laugh – this sort of living would be a brilliant way to find new friends. That kinda sold it to me really – 7 years in Second Life and I just don’t meet many new people these days  (Hi Purbella!) All in all – I think Id enjoy it here, the area is pretty, the owners attentive and ever so speedy to get me all set up with a group invite and offers to help if required. (The security system is awesome and simple to use btw) Go and take a peek, these are so so SO lovely !

Side note: Id like to mention that I pay my rent like any body else, I do not advertise the fact that I will be blogging the rental home at ALL – so any service I get is just like anyone else will receive.
