A Belated Valentine’s Greeting

vday_003Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys! I just wanted to wish you all a happy belated Valentine’s ^^ I was planning on showing a nice sexy number to celebrate, but just wasn’t in the mood :p I did manage to pick up a few gifts and sales along the way.

Drift is having a sale right now – 99L on all purple, pink, and red items. Hence, the nice new shirt that I am wearing now 🙂 Also, Gos Boutique has a lovely pair of shoes as a group gift now at the store.

Want more sales and gifts? Then check out this pinterest link here.

I tried to get Snowflake in the photo, but he’s nowhere to be found. I swear ever since I moved, you can never find this cat anymore. At the old house, he would always be up under me. Figures…

Home Sweet Home

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!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hey everyone! Sorry I have not blogged in a bit, but things were busy, both in SL and in RL. Why so serious in that photo? I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, as well as making changes in how I want to participate in Second Life…

1. Last month I moved in SL – still living on the beach of course, but I’m in a much better environment. When i first got my own place, I wanted to have parties and have a great time. This year I will keep a healthy balance between work and fun.  I’ll talk about my adventures in  furniture shopping for the place on another post.

2.  I was a model in the Voluptia Lingerie fashion show, which was my first show in over a year. It really felt like 2 shows since we prepared for another show with a different sponsor, but the show was canceled. The experience was a refresher in runway modeling, and it has encouraged me to continuing pursing my goals for modeling.

3.   Over the summer I became marketing chair with a company that specializes in marketing innovative products that help business owners.  We have several things planned for this year and can’t wait for them to take place. However, this year I will take the time to work on my own projects. Helping people to make their own dreams come true is great, but it’s a different feeling when you are in the driver’s seat so to speak.

4. Blogging! WordPress has a cool end of the year report about your blog. Here is an excerpt of what it says:

“600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

In 2012, there were 80 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 126 posts. There were 350 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 121 MB. That’s about 7 pictures per week.”

I am proud of my progress so far with blogging. One of my goals is to be more consistent in posting. It’s pretty obvious that the more content you have, the more visits you will get. I am really happy with the way my photos have been coming along.  However it can be a bit discouraging because it seems like if you don’t have the ability to enable shadows in SL, people won’t see your photos as being any good.

5. My inventory desperately needs to be cleaned out.  At 52, 346 items, I feel that is too much. My goal is to get between 30k – 31k items by going though everything and deleting old stuff. Also, by boxing up/deleting mesh sizes that I don’t need (XXS, L) I can get rid of stuff I don’t need as well.

I think this is all for now – a lot of things to think about and work on indeed. Until next time!

Second Life Home & Garden Expo 2012

Lately, whenever I go shopping in RL, I take pictures of items that I like, and would possibly buy if I had the money to do so. Also, it comes in handy when you want to make a purchase – all the details are in the picture. 🙂 I decided to take that concept into Second Life, so I took photos of items that I liked at the Home & Garden Expo. According to the website,

“… 5th Annual Home & Garden Expo benefitting Relay For Life of Second Life, a fundraising campaign for the American Cancer Society.  This year’s Expo will open on May 19th at 6am SLT, and remain open 24 hours each day until it closes on May 28th at 10pm SLT . This year’s extravaganza will span THIRTEEN sims, so we’ve added more space to make it the best and biggest Expo, of it’s kind in SL, ever!”

Shopping for charity – always a good thing 😀

  

One of the first things that caught my eye was this office workspace by Thistle Homes. It’s colorful, and makes good usage of primary colors without looking too elementary. If the color scheme of my house went with this, I could definitely see myself making some room to include this workspace.
