The LODE Flickr page is so gorgeous and inspiring. I have forgotten what it feels like to be excited about a brand, especially something in the accessories/jewelry niche. LODE reminds me a lot of Donna Flora, so lovely and unique. I love flowers, and being able to include floral elements into my looks is a lot better than simply decorating with them!

Pay Lower Second Life Tier and Get Faster Cash Out!

Let’s talk about some exciting new Second Life changes. Skip this if you don’t cash out or don’t own a full region. Read this if you want to save money!

I’m a patient person when it comes to Second Life credit processing times. I convert the lindens to USD via the LindeX exchange to pay my tier. On the rare occasion that I do cash out, the money usually arrives at my PayPal account within 5 days. Linden Lab just implemented new fees, along with the promise of faster credit processing time. I tested it this week, and the cash out time is 1 day. That’s sort of amazing! The new 1.5% of the transaction value fee isn’t really that much, since I’ve read that a lot of residents are happier with faster processing time.

Do you want to pay lower full region tier? Of course you do! Linden Lab just offered the option for current sim owners to “Buy Down” their region to receive grandfather pricing. Grandfathered tier for a full region is $195US/month. Everyone else who does not receive special discounts (education, large estates) pay $295/month. If you want to save money and plan on keeping your region from now until the end of the year, this is a deal.

The pricing for this offer is as follows:

  • Full Island:
    • One-time buy-down fee: $600
    • Grandfathered maintenance fee: $195/month (regularly $295/month)
  • Homestead:
    • One-time buy-down fee: $180
    • Grandfathered maintenance fee: $95/month (regularly $125/month)

Some people are grumbling about the one-time buy-down fee, but do the math! Let’s say your tier is due some time in April (after today’s date). You pay the $600 buy down fee, and instantly receive a $100/month discount going forward. From April – December, you will save $100 every month, so that’s 9 month x $100US = $900US tier discount. Take $900 – $600 = $300US savings this year. Next year, and every year after that, you will save $1200USD in tier per year. I predict that in 6 months time, land owners will feel the pressure to lower their price to stay competitive. The Buy Down offer expires October 16th, 2016, but the sooner you pay the fee, the more money that you will save this year. If you pay the fee in October, you will actually not save any money this year — $600 buy down fee – $300 tier saving ($100 month x 3 months for October, November, December) = $300 spent. So do it now for the greatest savings!!!!!!! I love math. I love saving money!

SL furniture have the craziest poses! When I find something to sit on, the built-in poses rarely ever fit me. I sat on this old chair at Baja Sands, slowed down the animation in SL, and waited patiently to capture the exact moment where my head faces forward and my hands do not intersect with my legs. It took longer to get a good shot this way, than if I had used my own poses, but I felt like a challenge today!

Today’s post is about the new feet update from SLink. Read the post over at SLink’s blog for all the news that you need to know. I’m really excited about the new HUD in the Deluxe Pack, new feet styles, and the ability to control left and right foot styles separately (great for photos!).

Dreamy

I redecorated! I used the Ispachi bedroom set for one and a half years, and I still love it but I wanted spruce up the room a bit with new decor and furnishings. I stumbled upon this Sallie / Body Language bedroom set from ages ago, but it’s new to me! I was highly disappointed that it’s a gacha item, but several thousand lindens later, I own all the pieces that I need to make a complete bedroom set. I went with all white furnishings so that my knick-knacks from Tres Blah would stand out more.

Decorating is relaxing, when I know that I’m only decorating for myself. It’s comforting for me that my home in SL rarely ever changes. It would probably give me a lot of anxiety if the decor and furnishings changes all the time. I don’t consider myself the best decorator in SL, but I think my home reflects my taste pretty well.

Truth Hair – Tierney
Monso – My Mimi Headphone (White)
Teefy – Shayla Structured Dress (White)
Ingenue – Oksana Heels (Noir)
