My outfit/look of the day is a mix of old and new items. You may need alphas for this look, and they are not included with the items so I made my own.

My skin is made by Izzie Button who has updated for BOM! I was happy to find her Daphne skin also included an eye makeup that went well with my outfit. Izzie’s a great shop, she always is forward thinking about resident needs and tweaks! If you need  new makeup, a fix, a sunburn, age, or wanna catch pink eye check out her store.

Sasy and I recently chatted about Demos about what we like, don’t like, and other thoughts regarding them. Check out our podcast, either on Sasy’s blog, or on Youtube – links below.

OOTD + Podcast – Daily/Popup Sales Events

Sasy and I recently did a podcast on Daily/Popup Sales events.  Event creators, designers, and shoppers all are part of the cycle of shopping, and it’s in everyone’s best interest that a certain flow is maintained. I think we touched on a few areas where there is a lot to reflect upon.

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.

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!
