Linden Living: Moving In

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.

I Had This Thing

I Had This Thing

Mixing and matching with some thing that have been in my inventory, some recently acquired, and some new releases.  Exile just released this fantastic updo. The Countess, at The Fantasy Collective. I’m wearing them with a new release from Essenz, the Stockholm ankle boots, which are available at The Seasons Story event. I love the leather lacing up the heels and back. I recently picked up this oversized knit sweater at Gizza which was released earlier this year. It’s a fantastic sweater, a nice super thick cable knit. It’s designed to be worn without any mesh hands, and use alphas to hide your arms for this awesome hands in pocket look. With purchase you get a 3 color HUD. I’m also wearing some of my favorite leggings. They’re made by Maitreya, and come in a variety of fabrics and colors making them something that looks fabulous even though they’ve been around for years. They’re mesh, and with purchase you also get the couture variation which doesn’t stop just at the ankle but continues down into a boot which is a really hot look.

Day at the farmers market

Day at the farmers marketI just picked up the London skin from The Skinnery at The Chapter Four event.  It’s comes with a skin, and LeLutka mesh head appliers. I love all the cute freckles.I’m wearing it on LeLutka’s Leda head. I’ve been so busy with real life, that all my goodies from May are like brand new discoveries in my inventory. I picked up this cute shirt from E-Clipse that I’ve been wanting to wear. It was at Shiny Shabby last month. I’ve styled it with Blueberry’s Tila skirt.  I have gotten to wear my jewelry also picked up in a gacha from last month’s Shiny Shabby event by Nomad & Coquette, and they’ve been my favorite pieces recently. I also blogged more of the set here.

Day at the farmers marketI’ve styled this outfit with Bushu’s Kali heels. They were released at My Attic, last month.I like how well they go with my Chicago Tote I picked up at ANE.  It has these cute headphones attached that come in a variety of prints, and you get ALL the prints when you buy a bag color. I love that! I picked up most of the items you see at gacha’s.  I’m at my little bit of Tuscany from 8f8’s
Primavera in Toscana Set from a previous round of the Arcade.  I’ve added in 8f8’s current Arcade gachas from the Green Grocer’s set, which includes the truck you see here. It’s one of the rares, and features a number of single and couples poses in it, and the engine starts! It’s really cute!

Hey Boy Hey Girl

I love the new Wool Mesh Leggings TuttiFrutti just released, they have amazing detail, and come in a ton of colors. They fit nicely under a variety of skirts and shorts I tried on with them.  I wanted to keep my outfit super casual so I wore Tee*Fy’s Denim Skirt, with Erratic’s Keira shirt in Red Plaid.  I love all the plaids she did this shirt in. I’m also wearing TuttiFrutti’s Giovanna scarf and bonnet.  They’re available in Gatchas separately in store in a wide variety of prints each. My boots are a fall release from League, the Lauren Wedge Boot, shown here in Charcoal.  They’re mesh, with a great leather texture and wedge heel. My hair is Daydream another new release from Exile, this is a really lovely long hair, which with a little editing of my hat fit perfectly underneath. I’m wearing it in Beyond a shade in the Natural Fusion 2 pack. My Slink Avatar Enhancement Hands have Flair’s Set 173 Denim Manicure on them. It’s a cute fun style.

Last Night

Halloween 2013

Last night was Halloween, and I had two trick or treaters.  I wasn’t really going to do anything much for Halloween, and got by with my new Bold Bright Jeans from TuttiFrutti in Paprika, and Erratic’s Keira shirt in the bird print.  I accessorized with Maxi Gossamer’s Shadow Cross Earrings, and Mon Tissu’s Montsegur Pumps. I’m wearing Exile’s Forever Yours hair, it’s new, and I love the fullness.  I’m also wearing two gifts, Hairoin’s Cracked 1 makeup, which is this cool red veining on my face, and Flair’s set 178 manicure, which is free in-store. It’s several colors, with a surgical staples coming undone to expose raw bloody skin, truely gross and awesome. Hope you had a great Halloween! Click here if you’d like to see the rest of what Sasy Scarborough (SasyPant’s) was wearing in this post (one of my trick or treaters), and the other is SySy Chapman, who is wearing the Halloween gift costume from G*Field.
