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.

Hair Fair 2016 – DP YumYum

DP YumYum/DP Barber YumYum released 3 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2016. 78AHF and 78BHF are gorgeous braids, if you had to pick one over the other it’s impossible.  78AHF features a with and without bangs variation. By pairing it with bangs available at the mainstore, you can switch up the style! Both styles feature a rigged and unrigged version.  Style 69HF is a beautiful short hair, with lovely movement to it. The stores has a nice range of shade huds, and I’ve fallen in love with this particular shade. They also have gift hairstyle in the store that features a lovely headscarf/bandana. DP YumYum is located here on the Backlot East sim.

Hair Fair 2016 runs July 16th through 31st. Featuring 80+ hair creators of Second Life, each hair sold donates a percentage to Wigs For Kids.

Alphabet Challenge-D

Alphabet Blog Challenge-D

With letter D in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge I resorted to pulling out some favorite items that have been in my inventory at least a year.  My first thought was hair from Dernier Cri, check out this favorite circa Hair Fair 2010.  I couldn’t resist using Digit Darkes, whose letter D became logos for her store. She may be gone, but she’s still a favorite in my closet especially her slip dresses…worn here as a shirt, under this cute chocolate houndstooth jacket from DeeTaleZ, with my Marni skirt from DeLa. I frothed a bit at the mouth when fri.day released their Dream Catcher bags, love getting to wear them out and about.

Another Spring Day

2 looks, and a skin.

Mimikri Full 1

I started out wearing the dress from Look #1, while out shopping with Sasy of SasyPants, and Newdoll, of Scantily Clad (NEW!). The look centers around the Emily dress from Mimikri which is a fun pattern, and I love the colors in the Beige variation.  What I loved was how fun Emily could be to mix and match with.  This is where designers need a heads up, if they are not already including all parts on all layers!  This dress featured the top on the shirt layer, and the undershirt layer.  The bottom of the dress glitch bottom is on the pants layer prim and resembles the bottom of a bodysuit or leotard, WHICH I LOVED.  However, it doesn’t come on the underwear layer too helping make it more wearable for shorts, pants, and skirts.  Bummer, cause its adorable.  But I was able to mix it up with this high-waisted skirt from Emery, YAY!  I love to mix and match, it’s a challenge for me.   I get so busy inworld, that click and wear outfits pre-assembled from designers could easily become my mainstay, yet I love the uniqueness of mixing it up.  This hair from Lamb, is the bomb!  Totally Bombshell!  Love it.

DeeTaleZ Bastienne Full

DeeTaleZ just released Bastienne, a lovely skin, with a variety of makeups, add ons such as eyeliner, eyeshadow, bust enhancer, and teeth!  Grab some demo, and see how you like it on you.  I am all giggles over the cute dimples on my lower back, and the my hips.  Love it.  Good Cleavage.  I also have to say if you are a fan of teeth, this skin is made well for wearing with them. This  smexy lingerie set is from Ooh LaLa! and it is tres oh la la!   Shown here I am wearing:

I had too much fun harassing Sasy a few days ago and decided to put together a proper outfit for it.  I have this LeLutka jacket, I love the detailing.  I wore the Ambient dress from Bijou underneath.  If you didn’t already know, Bijou, a cute Japanese fashion store has items discounted 50% off .  No dates have been mentioned when this will end, check the blog for more info.

I put together a cozy winter look. Lot’s of layers of warm material have me ready to curl up to read a book. This cabled cardigan from INDI Designs features a great white shirt underneath, all prim parts well made, and able to wear alone, or with each other. I loved how I was able to match the beige tone with this wool skirt from DeeTaleZ, and the Miel Lia Leggings. A cloud of hair to from LeLutka, and this cute set of jewelry from EarthStones, with the new LeLutka Gem skin finish the look.

Amacci Recently Released new hair, I love the Milly with its layers and perfect bangs shown in Brown Auburn. Her auburn really is lovely.  Another recently release is Tuli’s Gina Skin from early January I love the makeup, and the detailed skin.   This cute dress from DeeTalez, its adorable.  I keep it all together with accessories in my clothing folder to right-click change into between events, and other outings, it’s been my favorite thing to wear.  Comes on a variety of layers, plus prim pockets, and bonus pocket with the cutest little teddy bear in it, not shown. The designer made this style of dress in a variety of patterns something for everyone, I really should just buy them all if I can ever get out of this one.
FuLo is a new jewelry store debuting at The Deck.  The designer isn’t fully set up yet, but does have some items out currently.  This necklace was a gift, and will be coming to the store soon.  It’s available in a variety of gem stones, I chose amber for this.  Another favorite thing about this outfit are my knee socks with flowers from Miel, they are color change on cuff and flower, and a must have in all colors.  Royal Blue has these cute shoes, they hover between an ankle boot and shoe.  I love them particularly with these socks, they are great with pants too.

A style post…been REALLY busy in RL, but have this I am dying to share, before I get to the tons of other things I am getting ready to blog…accessorizing takes TIME dagnabit. All this stuff…or most of it, comes in other colors, and patterns, stop by the stores to see more. The lace trim you see is my undies peeking out from my shorts…I liked the look. Ooh LaLa might be closed for a while, they’re on Tableau which has closed temporarily for their yearly rebuild. Oh yeah, I changed my lip color but in photoshop..so the top middle lip is properly represented.

This outfit was more about obsession then fashion.  I mixed all the things I love right now, from knee socks, to layering a shorter top on a longer one.  Textures are also important, the idea of this red wool skirt, with the leather boots, with the heavier fabric of the vest, with the lighter feel of the LeLutka shirt.  All colors understated, yet holding their own coming together to make a statement.
