Seaside Sweets Shop

Seaside Sweets Shop

Hello from the charming Seaside Sweets Shop, lovingly decorated by the talented Fay Starlight. This Traditional Linden Home has been transformed into a delightful sweet shop featuring cozy decor and an abundance of complimentary treats and beverages.

I’m fond of the adorable kawaii cafes scattered throughout Bellisseria and hope that the moles will grace us with many more such quaint spots across the continent. To me, the essence of a vibrant community encompasses more than just living spaces; it includes retail establishments and perhaps even a quaint chapel.

New Second Life Membership Plans

Second Life just announced a new membership plan called Plus, which gives residents the right to own mainland and that’s it. Is it worth the money? I compare these new plans by only looking at the benefits that interest me, such as the land allowance, the stipend, and the perks that come with linden homes. I was shocked to find out that the Plus plan does not include a linden home, and the price is nearly equal to the Premium plan.

Bellisseria Trick or Treat 2022!

Bellisseria Trick-or-Treat 2022!
Trick or Treating with friends – Caroline, me, Hedy, Greg, and Fay!

It feels so good to finally get into the Top 10 in the Bellisseria Trick or Treat event! Last year, I came in Top 35, but I thought that if I had just gotten a few more candies, I would have been in the Top 10. So, my goal for this year was to try to collect all of the candies by going to all of the homes. I got 283 candies on the first day, and by day 7, I had 771. I found out that some of the top 10 winners only had 700 candies, so I could have stopped looking last week. I didn’t want to lose again, so I kept looking and looking until the very last hours last night! In the end, I had hundreds more than I needed to win but I still wasn’t sure I had won until Derrick Linden sent me the bears! <3

Submit a ticket for a Linden Home!

My New Linden Home

Look at this sweet new Linden Home I got by submitting a ticket! The process is so easy, even though rolling for one is fun too. I’ve acquired some of my favorite homes the regular way, by getting them on the Land Page. One of the perks of a Premium Plus membership is being able to submit a ticket for an available Linden Home. After I got my last Stilt Home, I said I was done. However, I noticed that all these fresh new stilts regions were named yesterday, so I submitted a ticket for one and it was delivered today. Thank you once again, to Whitney Linden! I picked this house because it’s situated on a peninsula and the back deck faces an unblockable ocean view. Pro tip! Avoid any regions that are on void edges, because the chances of them getting blocked are likely.

Houseboat // Bellisseria

They say you can never go home again, except in Second Life, where you can! In late 2019, I had a houseboat for a short time before moving on to another shiny new theme. On a whim three years later, I rolled the same houseboat again! This time, instead of the Eveningstar, I chose a different model, the Wallower.

My feelings about houseboats have largely remained consistent over the last three years — they were one of my least favorite themes. I don’t have a houseboat very often because I don’t like the colors or the crowded feeling. But every now and then, I come across a location that I find so appealing that I end up staying for a while. This is true of my current houseboat.

Who touched me?

Who touched me?

This weekend I felt inspired by the new Moss&Mink Aeryn Kitchen, so I started to decorate one of my Linden Homes. I started arranging the kitchen pieces, then logged off to run some errands. When I came back to the house, someone had opened all of the cabinets and appliance doors. It’s okay to touch/inspect an object for the creator’s name, but not okay to repeatedly annoy.

Java Sprockets Coffee House

Hello from the new Java Sprockets Coffee House on Puffin Head! I’m so pleased Linden Lab is going back and revisiting the older regions of Bellisseria. My favorite house is right next door to the Java Sprockets, so I am definitely thrilled by the new coffee house!

When I read about the passing of Ebbe Linden this week, I reflected on all of the past CEOs that Linden Lab has ever had, and he was the most engaging of all of them. A lot of cool projects happened under Ebbe, so I think that the grid will continue forward pretty much the same, as long as the executive team still believes in the same vision.

This is a post I’ve been waiting to write since last year. Last year, being a total Bellisseria enthusiast, I bid on two Relay for Life auctions and won them! I like that the Lab is so involved in Bellisseria and finding ways to engage the residents and hype up the interest. The auctions that I won are:
