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.

Comatose Luck

Comatose LuckI spent the day running errands in Second Life, and my look of the day is this sweater from Coco Designs with this bright white crisp shirt. I love the cuffs, and it looks starched! I’m wearing it with new leggings from Ison, the Marble Leggings currently at Uber. I’m also wearing Olive’s Uber release the Steffi hair.  Picked up the red from my Zenith Thorn Leather Clutch with red on my Ramonda heels from Glamistry. I enjoy being able to mix and match the leathers, and trim.

Comatose LuckI’m wearing the Aria mesh head from LeLutka, with Glam Affair’s 06 makeup. Both are available at LeLutka’s new store and sim design. This makeup was straight off my favorite, with the dramatic eyeliner, and two whisps under each eye, and muted fig colored lipstick. I’ve used the head’s main hud to turn up and blend the base to get this color instead of fig which I liked, but I wanted RED. They also have a gift of appliers in a lipstick on a table in Undivided which features the skin appliers. It includes 2 preselect skin tones from Glam Affair per head with a makeup. America & Artic skin tone with Fairy Tales makeup for Aria; Europa & Jamaica skin tones with Forest makeup for Ever; and Leda gets Exotic & Petal skin tones with Ghot Party makeup.

Fashionably Dead released this hair at Hair Fair this year.  You can find it at their main store soon, if not already, if you didn’t snag it at the fair. I love how softly waved it is, and all the shades in their brunette pack.  I’m wearing a new mesh release from Razorblade Jacket called Thrace Military Dress.  This dress will be available at Vintage Fair 2012. I’ve accessorized with jewelry from Glow Studio, and Mandala, and guitar from Sey. I’m wearing a shirt tied around me waist from Coco Designs, sculpted with good texture.
