If you’ve been waiting for that dream houseboat get ready! According to Patch Linden, in less than 24 hours …40 regions of houseboats are coming! Yes, 40!

The map shows the regions have been moved into place and are located to the east of the Bellisseria landed regions. As yet there appears to be no causeway and/or bridge leading to this area. So those within the boating community should be delighted. It’s only a short trip via watercraft.

There is still a considerable amount of land that is heavily landscaped with public areas for gathering. Lovely beaches, conversation areas, picnic areas, and cuddle spots are dotted all over them. So get ready, I also imagine there will be some leaving the landed Linden Homes to try for them so you might even get an opening for a parcel if you’re lucky.  F5 is your friend.  Linden Homes are available for premium residents.

Linden Living: Moving In

40779447573_226655b1fa_k.jpgMoving Day by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Hi everyone. So my mailbox is fixed, and I’ve got a proper Linden Home again. Now, comes the fun part, deciding which home style I like, and getting my furniture in.  This has been pretty difficult. I’m leaning very heavily on the Winchester, and currently moving into that one for now.

The biggest issue I see is how to divvy up enough LI for the space so I can have a bit of everything I think I need. I’m very sure I want a kitchen, living room, dining, and outdoor recreation. It’s the upstairs bedroom that is conflicting me, I would like a bedroom as well as a work room which I can use it for both.

Initially I decided since I had 5 areas to decorate I would evenly assign LI to each space with a starting point of about 70 LI per space. Seemed simple enough, if I was happy with an area that was still under 70 LI I could reassign additional LI elsewhere or keep as I might want to spawn cars as needed.

This is actually quite a challenge for me considering I’ve lived with nearly whole sims to rez out as much as I please for 10 years. I’ve already started installing a kitchen, and plan on working it out from there.

The Lindens keep teasing us with news that more homes are coming soon. I’ve been watching the map and they certainly are making progress. They’ve also updated to include security orbs, as when they went live the ban lines were ugly and as you can imagine, that just ruined the esthetics here quick. So the solution was to feature security orbs, and there are quite a few rules for them as we don’t want to suddenly find ourselves returned home from the street on a bike ride, or sent home when flying over (personal aircraft are quite popular here). So that should help at least keep my hot tub clean. For more information about the security orbs check the forum announcement from Patch Linden here.

Also, shout out to my fellow neighbors on Bellisseria – keep it weird. The random t-rex, the police chases, broken down buses..ya’ll make my day. But stay out of my hot tub.

Ya know, you’re probably thinking right now, why is does that place have a slurl and not this place? Look, do you see all those stores? I didn’t plan on having to slurl all of them. I certainly didn’t think that out well when thinking ooh I can have an outfit change and take another photo. I haven’t blogged in like 6 months so I’m rusty and over ambitious. But I assure you, all of the above stores can be found in search or marketplace, and if not there they’re closed. I might feel guilty and come back and populate them more but search is right there.

Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!)

Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)So..yeah..my anti-valentine post…to the tune of Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!) by Blu Cantrell. LeLutka released tons of new hair, and by tons I mean 3 hairstyles, and a free fatpack gift hair for the LeLutka group all in new textures! Sheena is the group gift hair, and comes in a fatpack of their new updated tones. I am so in love with the new hair textures. With each hud you pick you get a 8 base colors,  8 roots version, 8 dipped versions, and 8 dipped with roots. So join the group, and try out all the new shades. I really liked this dipped one I’m wearing from the Dim Pack, on the new Kayla style, which has a nice range of muted tones. If you are a naturals pack kinda girl like I am you will also like their Range Pack which features a natural tones variety, along with the as above, roots, dipped, and dipped with roots. The ginger pack was also nice it had 3 of my favorite red tones. They’ve also extended their color range with the Crayon and Vivid, and Void. The new hair is at the landing point at Lelutka.

Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)

I’m also wearing Baiastice’s Cleo Sweater, and Nayra Skirt which are available at Collabor88. I mixed up the colors to keep to the muted tones of my hair, and and offset my Doll V2 Vamp skin from Pink Fuel. While I originally had this skin in peach, I was poking around Mochi’s Flickr page, and saw this tone which is also available for a variety of bodies, and body parts, and had to have it. I’m wearing the Slink version on my Physique body, and Visage Becky head, and Avatar Enhancement Feet & Hands.  I’m also wearing a tiara from Eclectica, assorted jewelry from Maxi Gossamer Jewelry. The items in my photo are a hodge podge assortment of things that were rezzed out at my studio. I initially was going to do a location shot when I realized my shadow settings had reset and instead of fighting with them, I ran back to my studio where I have more control over my lighting. These were all out from unpacking, and so I left them cause I like how they look together. There are some items from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival going on right now, which Sasy, Ashia, and I spent yesterday at picking up some cool things, and a few things I recently picked up here and there.
