Hello from Aurelias! We’re adding touches of Spring to the town square, and the centerpiece is this beautiful Blooming Grand Piano from Dust Bunny. Add your photos to the Aurelias Flickr group to be selected for the group cover. I love seeing the region through your eyes.
I’m wearing the new Ubon head from LeLutka. It’s slightly different than Kaya, but I think I’m ready to move on. I spent days modifying my shape to my liking; it’s a work in progress. I shared this raw screenshot on Twitter a few days ago. I love the HD brows so much, and this is the first time I’m undecided between the really thin HD brows or the one I normally wear, the less thin one. They both work so well for this head. I normally only like the bottom two, the rest are way too bushy and thick for me.
I’ve been attending the Concierge and Land User Group meetings and they’re so lively and interesting. I started going to be more informed about upcoming land changes and to give feedback. Wendi Linden & Vix Linden were such great hosts. Here’s the schedule for the meeting — see you at the next one!
I already know a lot about Second Life land, maybe too much. I’m obsessed with regions, Linden Homes, and mainland (even though mainland is my least favorite land product). Recently I learned that some residents don’t utilize the 10% group land bonus because they don’t understand it. I’m currently holding a piece of mainland, and with the group bonus, I can donate my extra tier to my friend. If every Premium member (who doesn’t own a Linden Home) deeds their tier to group, they would have a little extra to donate to a public project or acquire more land. If you own a big enough parcel of mainland, where the 10% bonus is 512sqm or more, you could use that extra to get a Linden Home.
If you find land stuff interesting, let me know in the comments. I’m happy to share some tips & tricks to maximize your land-owning experience without spending extra money.

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.
Good morning from Evermore House on Aurelias! Why haven’t I ever been to this house before? It’s so eerie and beautiful, and sits all by itself on this deserted corner of the island. When I asked Sparkle about the reason the previous owners moved out of the house, she said that she had no idea either. I promise that as soon as I learn the real story behind what took place at Evermore House, I will post an update!
You’re cordially invited to the Evemores— forever more. The Evermore House was once home to the most notable family on Aurelias. The first Evermores arrived in the 17th century and established themselves on the island. John Evermore, his wife, and their daughter are the last known members of the Evermore family to have lived there. The house has been deserted for a very long time, and it now sits all by itself, patiently awaiting its next guests.
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.
Have you ever wished that you could select your Linden Home? Many people have asked me how I was able to select my stilt home using the Premium Plus choose your Linden Home concierge service, so I’m here to show you exactly how to do it.
Is your dream home available?
Before you upgrade your account to Premium Plus in order to use this service, make sure you map Bellisseria and create SLurls to available homes. Keep in mind that popular Bellisseria themes are frequently sold out and the homes are instantly available on the Land Page, you won’t be able to file tickets for those homes with any success. Newly released themes are more abundant, so you will have much better luck filing a ticket for a home.
I went to SL19B to meet the Lindens! Patch Linden gave an exciting interview with hints about the upcoming Premium Plus membership, which will be available on June 23rd, 2022. At first glance, it appears that nearly all of the benefits will be doubled, but the cost will be TRIPLED. Premium Plus will be $29.99 per month or $249 USD/per year. For 30 days, the introductory price will be $24.99 per month.
Hello from my new Log home! Sometimes you get lucky, and you land a lakeside home with just one roll, like I did on this one.
Are you a Linden homes enthusiast? Do you play the Game of Homes in order to land the best location? While log homes are still releasing, these tips will hopefully help you now to land your dream log home, and for future home themes.
The ’80s is back, baby! I went to Sanarae to get this Sun Catcher outfit from Amitomo. A billion plays later, I won everything from this gacha machine. The overalls comes with a HUD to change the color/texture of the t-shirt.
I’m walking around to see some soon-to-be released Bellisseria sims. I sold the mainland beach so I could get another Linden Home without upgrading my tier. I think I want a home on a mountain… which isn’t usually my style, but at least it’s different!
