Home Sweet Home

Hey guys! So like I promised, I would talk more about my adventures of getting a new place. First of all, the land is 8128 square meters, with 465 prims. Don’t worry, the tier is a real bargain for me to compromise my prims 🙂 Now of course, the real challenge is how to make the place look great with such a limited amount of prims?

House. Well, I remembered that Novocaine Islay has great houses for a low price. I didn’t want the furnished homes because 1. It would eat most of my prims and 2. I wanted to have more control over my furniture selection.

Furniture. Thank goodness for mesh! I told my roommate we would need to get as much mesh stuff as possible so we can have a nice selection of furniture. To be honest, I was hard-pressed to find a good variety of furniture to select from. All of the places that were deemed to be “good” places a couple of years ago went obsolete when mesh started.  So, where did I go?

Trompe Loeil – This store rocks when it comes to mesh furniture, and I probably have the bulk of my furniture from here.  In the above photo the couch and kitchen is from there. I wouldn’t recommend resizing the kitchen unless you want a larger land impact 🙂 The couch has a land impact of 6, which was about half of what my roommate’s couch was before I replaced it.
          floorplan – I found out about this store from the With Love ❤ hunt, where I got the table with the chairs that you see in the picture. I was amazed that the table and each chair had only 1 land impact each. The chair I had from the ARIA  Salvador dining room set was like 7 prims alone. Granted that it’s a bit more fancier than the floorplan one, but this goes to show that mesh rocks. I also have a cute moon chair and shutter cabinets in my room from them.
        Apple Fall – I found out about this place at Fameshed – they had a nice skybox, but Apple Fall makes furniture as well. I bought a cute bed from there, but I had issues with the animations so I am still waiting to hear from the owner.

One of my pet peeves with furniture is that all furniture should be available with copy permissions. Now, I understand that people who buy their animations from a third party may have to pay more for copy animations, so in turn copy furniture will be more expensive.  However, not having a policy that you as the merchant will replace furniture that is no copy if LL asset servers go wonky is just plain greedy. If I don’t have a guarantee I can replace it, then I just won’t buy from them. Even in “first” life they have warranties.

See you soon guys!

More Black Friday Goodies

I have some goodies from theWarehouse sale on Black Friday (weekend). You have to be a member of the group to gain access to the sim, but it’s worth it. I had gotten a lot of items last summer (2010), so this was just to see did I miss out on anything.

Today’s main piece is called Milla Milla  in Aufren Black by {Gisaci}. You can never have too many black items in your wardrobe, for you can use accessories to accent other colors.

For instance, I have on a belt by R.icielli called MARGOT in black, and shoes from N-core (old group gift).

Armidi makes the best sunglasses. Last time I got the Fi Umo sunglasses in Black Tortoise with black lenses. Every time I wear them and I am out and about, I get compliments. So this time I decided to get a few more pair that I wasn’t able to get in the last sale. These are Dark Tortoise with black lenses.

This pair is White Tortoise with blue lenses, which i thought was a nice contrast. I am also wearing a Water Healing Koi Bangle (left arm) and a Glitz bangle combo (right arm). I was talking witha  friend the other day and she spoke about the importance of stocking up on classic items. When I said Armidi had a lot of classic items, she agreed. How many stores that you can name that has basic items that can stand the test of time for years after they have been designed?

Okay – that’s all from me for now ^^ See you soon!
