Worth it (Free)

 

For some reason I found myself at Lagom – and there were a lot of lucky boards. Decided to camp out and see what turned up, et voila. The boards roll along quite swiftly and in no time I had won this rather fab earth shaped wall light – only 1Li.

Next my letter came up for the (IMO) best prize – the converted barn sky box ! I spent the next few minutes wondering why I kept on sinking through the floor – finally fixing it by making my own transparent platform to slip underneath – if you win this and want that texture – shout and I will send it. Just 25Li and really adorable – its a keeper for moi.

I think I’ve found my new home.(Freebie).

I sat my skinny AV ass down determined to work through a whole load of gifts from an event long, long over now and came across a stunning backdrop from a shop called Varonis. No this isn’t my new home the details are in the last part of this post.

This is the new Group Gift from Varonis and yes it’s FREE.

I know that for many people a backdrop isn’t really a useful thing and that’s why even though you may never use one I say you really have to admire the quality.  This room is pretty big it’s more warehouse-size which means that if you do take pictures you will have no issues getting great angles.

As you can see there is a doorway which leads onto a small corridor with totally different colours and again another photo opportunity.

All of these pictures have just been taken in my sim setting so you can really see the quality in the lighting and use of textures to create such great and workable backdrops.

There is a small selection of clothing but really this shop is backdrops AND builds which is how I’ve found my new summer home.  For the first time in years, I think I will be living in the sky because if you check out the Lueur skybox demo you too will find your jaw-dropping at the stunning texturing/lights, price and prims! This skybox reminds me of one I already own and yet if I placed them side by side the older one will look so much chunkier and dated which in all fairness it is since I’ve had it for XXX amount of years.  So at some stage, I think I will rezz myself a little hut or I did pick up an 88Ld caravan from Collab88 and live in the sky for spring and summer.

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.
