Thrifty idea (Free)

One of my favourite past times in Second Life is looking at homes and whilst I was at AT Design I spotted a board saying “Useful”, on that board is a free gift of Skybox covers. If you never knew you needed one of these – well you DO! Such a nifty idea. We all have some of those gorgeous skyhomes right? The ones that are gorgeous inside but look like a carbuncle on the outside? Yeah you knowww. So in this box are covers, many different sizes with a texture change function with lots of different facades to choose from. Simple but effective and just 1Li !

Dollarbie Mesh Apartment

I have to admit that while I was waiting to start my meeting earlier – I was browsing the market place on my iPhone ! I found this charming little apartment for just $1L. At 21Li it wont bust the prim budget and it’s really nicely put together. Hallway, Living space / Studio area, and a third room accessed through a door. Simple and easy to furnished for a home or studio. Keeper for me !

Im living in a box – FREE home!

Gawd flash back song lol However you really can live in a box – a gift box – all tied up with a ribbon & bow (various colours to choose from). Vitamin have this fantastic and unusual home on the market place for free. I’m always curious to take a peek at homes, and if its free, why not? This turned out to be a hidden gem – Little bit on the primmy side, but it is mod and you can ditch a few things such as the interior drapes, add a teleport between floors and remove the stairs etc etc.

I loved the interior, beautiful textures used and upstairs you get a menu for window views – this is “panorama” – lovely! All windows have flexi drapes the open and close , there is even a little balcony to sun yourself on – brilliant !

Renting a home in Second Life -Be Sassy

rental-homes-5l-per-day-upwards-or-weekly

Took some time out last week to scoot about and see what was new and happenin on the rental scene. I came across Sassy Rentals, what made me look twice was the low low lowwwww prices and the fact that you could, if you wish, rent by the day ! The rental I tried out for a week was just $5L per day – yes that’s right – FIVE Lindens per day! You can rent daily or weekly, whatever suits you.  I was really lucky that I got to speak with one of the owners and was given a quick tour around to other homes. Each one was stuffed with animated surfaces, kitchen,sofa, beds etc. Upon paying the rent box you will automatically get invited to the rental group – you MUST accept this to be able to set home and utilise the furnishings. DO read the info note (I didn’t DUH) it contains useful stuff about being a tenant there.

Prices go from just $1L – up to around $150L if memory serves correctly, there are also lots down on the land below but at the time of writing this those are all taken. Your privacy is taken seriously, no one can cam perv you and you also have an easy to set up security orb – no worries at all.  Go and take a peek around, they seem pretty full at the moment but of course it may empty up a bit over the festive period!

Sky High Summer

CIRCA Sky home

O.o its been ages since Circa have had a sky home for sale, “The View” sky home is up for grabs at the Home Whimsy Event – this runs until the 30th June.  It’s serene and tranquil in colour with a great open concept to lay out room items.  There are 4 living spaces, with 3 indoor and 1 outdoor patio area.  You’ll find each room has 2 windows with scripted blinds. Perfect for the summer! I personally can’t abide a sky home without an outdoor space – so this is just dandy. (50% discount if purchased at the event!)

Chez Moi Bar NEW!

If you plan it right, there is no reason you can’t celebrate the summer in your skyhome! I got out the new “Hakuna” bar by Chez Moi (available at Tres Chic – on until July 10th) Fantastical bar with heaps of details, swing chairs, some awesome bartender poses ! The really cool thing is you can have as much of this out as prims allow – it’s not hard linked, perfecto!

Chez Moi Bar NEW!!

I hopped on and got straight into tending bar, whipping up cocktails, prepping a burger etc. I’ve not seen animations like these before – VERY refreshing! ( $480L for PG version/$720L for Adult version).

CIRCA Geek NEW

I also set up a little lounging corner on my deck space, using the new set out by Circa for the Geektopia event (June 19 – July 3) Totally adore the sumptuous leather fabric on the floor cushion, its super realistic. The balloon shaped chair and gamer inspired table are also pieces on offer.

Perfect Ten - Finishing Touches NEW

Oh la la a new round of Perfect Ten has begun, and its jam-packed with romantic goodies for the month of February – 50% discount (or more in some cases!) when bought at the event. So so so above is part of a set by Finishing touches, PG or Adult versions, and I have to say the Adult one is exceptionally lovely. The main upholstery is a sort of soft veined leather, with happy plump studs trimming the edges of the bed and chairs. Lots of scope to fiddle as its also got heaps of texture options for the fabrics yay!

Perfect Ten - Finishing Touches, lUNAR SEASONAL DESIGNS, THE MUSTARD SEED

This is the other chair form Finishing Touches, its got a blanky laid over the arm which always looks so stylish. The vase of heart-shaped flowers is by Lunar Seasonal designs. You get a gazillion (or thereabout) choices for the vase colour, the flower colour and also lighting effects. The vase of antique pink roses and pearls and the décor love block is by The mustard seed, they’ve got oodles of pretties out this round.

At Last !

Scarlet Creative collabor88 - NEW!

I’ve been waiting for Scarlet Creative to launch a new skyhome for simply ages, tadah – here it is! This is the “Rakkaus” sky home, and it’s totally awesome. All the features I so love are right there, the peeling plaster effect, the warm wood, all those creative touches that really make a space special and “homey” and über stylish. At just 67Li and costing only $188L its a show stealer. You can grab this at the latest round of Collabor88, there is a demo I believe also.

If you touch the main window in the lounge area you get a menu for the views from all the windows. Brilliant as it means this sky home isn’t just for Winter – it’s an all year round pad. Quite a few options to keep you happy and it also means you get rid of that skyhome feel of being locked away inside – you have views !

Scarlet Creative NEW!

From the main living area there are a few steps up to a railed gallery, some of the poles have fairy lights wound around them which is just so sweet. Lots and lots of windows , so the whole build seems airy and fresh.

Scarlet Creative backgrounds

Just a handful of the window view options here for you to see, the décor panel is by Circa btw. (more info about that later)

Scarlet Creative details

And of course, a little teaser of some of the little details that always thrill me – which is why you really need to get your little paws on this and make it your home. I’m considering placing one above my land home actually, as a sort of “get away”, perhaps after Christmas ! Thanks Charlotte ❤
