This is “what next”

what-next-snowy-lodge-100l

 

I hunted the market place the other day for something cheap & cheerful to utilise as a background for some winter furniture. Imagine my surprise when I found this brilliant little home, all ready for winter from what next! Now what next is  a premium type of store, its one of my fav’s – and this little baby was just $100L all in. heres some deets:

* fits on any size plot

* small, built to scale – makes an ideal romantic retreat, playhouse or just adorable feature for outdoors landscaping.

* wood siding, with snowy roof, porch, frosted windows with snowflake detail

* two upstairs faux windows – touch the front one’s window frame to light both up for a pretty night time effect.

* front door opens on touch (not lockable)

* linked fireplace – menu-driven, touch logs for audio/flame FX

* chimney outside has optional smoke FX

* includes outdoors lantern, pile of wood decor

* 63 prims (with unlinked door/fireplace), lantern= 4 prims, log pile 6 prims)

* includes snow clump and snow texture to match cabin snow

* other furnishings, landscaping and decor NOT included

* perms = copy/mod/no trans (scripts for faux windows copy only)

It beautifully made inside and out, prims are 73 (that includes the lantern & log pile which are not hard linked) This is only available on the market place but apparently there is one set up at the inworld store for size comparison.

Grand Isolation – renting a home in Second Life

CLM rental home - $99L per week rent furnished or unfurnished

Time for another look at the rental market, I always love to do these posts – hope you enjoy them and find them useful. I came across CLM rentals and took a peek at what they had to offer. Quite a range of rental homes and land, starting from a little as $50L per week. Most of the “budget” range seemed to be furnished, not bad but Id prefer to use my own stuff really. You can’t ask for furniture removals on the budget homes, but you can on the others (over $100L per week range). I liked the look of this Lighthouse, something a little different no? It cost me $99L for a week, furnished and with 50 prims to use. As usual with me, I asked for everything to be removed so I could furnish myself. After everything was taken I had the grand total of 65 prims yay! That’s more than enough to create a cozy and stylish place. There are four floors to this dwelling, I used the ground as a lounge/ kitchen, 2nd floor as a dining room, 3rd floor bedroom and left the 4th floor empty as it was nice to have a walk around area outside. I have ONE prim left for emergencies! Group auto return is set to on in the properties, so make sure you’re wearing your group tag BEFORE placing stuff out – or it gets delivered back to you pretty pronto. (The group invite arrives as soon as you’ve paid the rent)

CLM rental home - 99L per week

I used almost exclusively furniture from Bazar, low prim and brilliantly made. The fire in my bedroom is by what next – gotta have a snuggly fire near my bed. Once I was finished decorating (I LOVE decorating) I decided to survey the new area. One of the reasons I chose the lighthouse, is that I can avoid looking at the land behind me, it isn’t a pretty view , but…its not hard to ignore it. Once I’m inside my lighthouse I tend to look out of the windows at the sea – that suits me just fine. I did take a look at a few other homes being offered and found some dead cute ocean front sort of tiki houses. Well appointed and nicely set out and ever so inexpensive ! Definitely do check the other homes, I’m pretty sure you will find something to your taste.

Christmas Wishes (freebies inc.)

coldLogic sweater NEW - Mina hair - wintertime bike by what next boots Storm Crow Designs colour HUD inc 100L !

It’s no secret that I just adore Christmas is it ? I couldn’t wait to get my mitts on the sim and make it over for winter ! My paws are dead tired now after humping stuff innnn and outtt of my inventory – but its done . So, I was thinking back to a few years ago, about a lovely thing that happened to me. Long story short I was sent a gift from “Santa” after writing him a letter at one of those Christmas places. I didn’t ask for anything they could actually give to be honest but they sent me something lovely – I was stoked and it made me smile. In the spirit of “giving back”, Id like to try to replicate those feelings in some of YOU , I know right? DEAD exciting ! Dreamworks is our home sim, you will land at the hot chocolate machine, grab a cup and follow the board walk to the snowy tunnel. This leads out onto the skating pond. At the far end Santa is waiting for you, complete with comfy lap to sit on. To the side is his mailbox, with easy to understand instructions on how he likes his mail delivered.

High length Boots Storm Crow Design 100L colour change HUD inc.

You can wish for anything in your note and Santa will try VERY hard to make it come true. Obviously he is a pretty busy boy around this time of year, he might only be able to do a few ! anyhooo onto the main feature of this blog NEW pretties. I helped myself to some fingerlickin gorgeous boots, they are by Storm Crow Design and are on offer for just 100L at the new round of Designer Circle. Bloomin lovely, choice of high (as above) or shorter length, you also get a HUD with quite a few colour options yay! These are for Slink high feet btw.

Freebies Frogstar (mostly 1 prim!)

My sweater is from the new range of wooly pullies at coldLogic, darn it I cant stop wearing them. This one is “wayne”, and comes with a contrasting scarf that I haven’t added on , because you know…long hair effect. (although, the scarf does come in various sizes) hair is an old fav from Mina which was set out on offer a few weeks ago, DUH bought it twice. It’s a real keeper though, especially for winter. The hat has a few pattern/colour combo’s in a hud, handy-dandy. All the décor you see above is from Frogstar and it was one of our blog readers who nudged me into action with a note to go get the gear. Brilliant stuff ! Pictures, mirror,bench that’s stuffed with SO many poses and the sweet thanksgiving table, some are dollarbies, some I was given as gifts for joining the subscribo – I’m confused as what is which – so take a peek . (Thanks Sparka <3)

Rise and Shine Coffee Time.

 

Dare you to guess the prim count in this What Next Rise and Shine Coffee Tray……….WRONG! it’s only 3 PRIMS! and it even dispenses coffee cups that come with or without a drinking AO so you can wear it on it’s own or use it with your own scripted furniture but ignore that and just look at all that quality texturing and details for a tiny 3 prims.  Only available at The Fair ( a small market set up with unique goodies from some great designers/shops) for only 175 and trust me something as good as this is worth that and more.
