California Dreamin’

My Style.

So my boo and I are headed to a tropical wedding this weekend, and I needed to pick up some cute things to wear. We made a pit stop on the West Coast and I couldn’t help but hit Designer Drive. I love this sim, not just the stores but the design! It definitely gives my Rodeo Drive vibes! Check it out here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Burley%20Hills/146/158/2002

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’ll be getting my tan on!

Happy Birthday Kustom9!

 

So this post was totally unplanned! Forgive the mess…. but I wasn’t expecting to pick up so many goodies today at Kustom9! I was camped out with all the early birds and was able to pick up somethings I had been eyeing on Facebook along with all the gifts that were available to celebrate Kustom9’s birthday round! HUGE SHOUT OUT to VEXiiN for their FIRST female clothing release! It is bomb!

Another shout out I want to give is to all the creators that rig for ALL MESH BODIES and not just exclusive to one body! I understand rigging is hella hard. That’s why I appreciate and support designers all the more when the take time to rig for all bodies. Honestly, I’d love to see a separate event for “Exclusives” so that I know when i’m going to shop, I will have items that will fit my body. Just my opinion… Hope you enjoyed the photos and check out the full quality on my Flickr!

#Level Event and Shiny Shabby

This week I did another fun post with a vehicle! Inspired by Cardi from the Motorsport Video! Most of these items came from Level, however my eyeshadow (which you probably can’t see because of the glasses :P) the hair, and he Bodysuit did not. The bodysuit was from the Shiny Shabby event! Another event I loved this week was the NeoJapan event! I got the Kimono I wore in this week’s inspiration post from there!

Choosing a Second Life Home

 

Welcome Back Everyone!

I got another request for more information about Land in Second Life and I thought it would be a great opportunity to talk about my home! So to start, I want to say that there’s no “right” way to live in SL. Its all based on what you want and how much money you want to spend. I don’t go too deep in depth but if you’re looking for moe information the Land Wiki is my favorite resource. I learned so much from it when I was just getting started too!

Let’s start with how to get it!

There’s a couple different ways and a couple different kinds of land you can get. First there’s Mainland and Private Land.

If you have a premium account, you’re given a land allowance and with that you can get a Linden Home. (so cool right?) I lived on a platform above my Linden home for a long time. I took a break from SL, didn’t pay my premium that year, and when I came back I guess you weren’t allowed to do that anymore. If you’re premium, you can also purchase land that’s been abandoned or put up for Auction on the website. With your own land, you’ll have to pay rent to the Lindens in the form of what’s called “Tier”! Another option that you have is to purchase your own region or “sim”, which is much bigger than the plots of land on the mainland, but it offers more privacy, space, and prims. This comes with a pretty hefty Tier, but if it’s what you want, GO FOR IT!

After I got evicted from my Linden Home, I moved to my first “Community” on SL, which would be considered Private Land. Someone purchases land (a region) and parcels it off, and rents you a piece and a certain amount of prims to use. Depending on the land owner, you would pay rent (tier) weekly, biweekly, or monthly. You can even pay in advance.  I loved my time in communities because it afforded the opportunity to meet new people and roleplay. Some of the cons of communities can be drama and lack of privacy, so keep that in mind.

Ultimately I left community living in search of my own space that I could customize. In all my years on SL, I hadn’t learned how to terraform and build/customize my own spaces and I wanted to do that. I have rented land from a lot of different land sellers on SL, but by far my favorite has been Latin Estates. Their prices are reasonable and they give you a lot of prims. Their customer service is on point and their sims run well, definitely not extreme lag like some places.

There’s an entire wiki on Land that’s updated and managed by Linden Labs, I encourage you to check it out as it goes VERY in depth and I hope this has answered some of your basic questions and helps you make a choice about what to get!
