Hello from the SLB16 beach area! I love the terraforming here at this beach, it’s a heart-shaped beach made by combining 6 sims. When I first landed here, I thought these were a preview of the new linden beach homes, got excited, then discovered that it’s not. These beach houses are made by Trompe Loeil and rezzed by Naughty Mole (love the name!).
2019 is the year of softer and better hairlines. I was not a fan of hair bases, cos the textures never lined up right. I am a fan of built in hairlines on the hair itself. Yes! Let’s never go back to hair bases!
Hello virtual neighbors! I have decided to decorate the inside of my Linden home. At first I had planned on using all of the prims outside, for landscaping and exterior decor, but after seeing other residents using their 351 prims wisely, I realized that I wasn’t being efficient. I am still using nearly 200 prims outside, but as I decorate the rooms in my home, I will remove landscaping and replace high-prim items with lower prim ones.
Every home needs a nice living room, it’s usually the first thing people see. I love the Vida Sofa Set from Cheeky Pea. The set includes a texture HUD to change the colors of the sofa & pillows (8 presets), so it would work with lots of interior styles. The entire set is only 46 land impact! (Does anyone know the difference between li and prims?) I aim to use only 50 prims for each room, so I can decorate all the rooms in my home. I added a planter and a few knick-knacks on the shelf, and this room is complete.
My decorating skills are quite low in SL. I don’t like clutter, and I also can’t remember all the things that are in my inventory. This however, works out perfectly in a Linden home. For the sake of being able to rez things quickly, let’s not overload our homes!
After I arranged my decor, I had to do a fresh re-install of Second Life cos my textures kept refreshing constantly. It was a nightmare! I know my computer is quite old (if I tell you how old it is, you will be shocked – hint: it’s almost as old as my blog), but I can usually rez just fine on private sims. I blame my neighbors for this! Being on a shared public sim is difficult, especially with everyone trying to decorate their homes to the brim.
After I did my re-install of Second Life, things were a little better. I decided NOT to adjust the debug settings. Back in the day, it was recommended to adjust rendervolumelodfactor and some other things, to get mesh to render correctly and not be a blob. I’ve been thinking about it, and we have come a long way since the early mesh days. Creators need to optimize their stuff, cos most SL residents don’t even know about the Advanced menu. If I have to adjust debug settings for your things to render correctly, then I do not want them. So my SL experience going forward, will just be whatever the default settings are.
I just found this outfit from The Secret Store in my inventory, that’s how much of a wreck my inventory is right now. I love it! The reason I’m wearing this teal color is cos my new sofa also comes in this exact shade!! If you ever wanted to match your furniture, here’s your chance.
What I’m Wearing:
Pink Fuel – Kiera (Biscuit) for LeLutka
Truth – Surrender
The Secret Store – Fiona Belted Skirt, Samantha Blazer
It’s madness how much I spent to win every piece of the Long Vacation gacha set. I’ve been shifting from retro-style to 80s-style in SL. I don’t remember when I started wearing Amitomo or buying cute little builds from Haikei, but I’m so glad these two brands exist in SL. I desperately needed new brands in my SLife, so I’m glad to have found a handful of cute stores with consistent releases to inspire me.
Have you seen the delicious new animation add-on from LeLutka? Lol Bee Bop and Wooly Mammoth are two more food-centric animations to keep you satisfied. I’m thinking maybe LeLutka should release a teeth brushing animation next, that would be so cute!
Are there animations that you want for mesh heads? Let me know in the comments!
Hello from the seaside! I love this gorgeous Jaya Top from Teefy (available at Uber). Available in soft pastel colors and vibrant prints, this top also includes HUDs to change the ruffle colors on the sleeves and bottom ruffle, or turn them off entirely. I like this option a lot, since it makes the top easier to pair with an assortment of pants and skirts.
What I’m Wearing:
Truth – Bloom
Teefy – Jaya Top (Spring), Brenna Skirt (Creme)
Ingenue – Sabina Heels
This whole look is giving me San Junipero 80’s vibes! The Merry Look gacha set from M.birdie is an 80s dream combining pinks and blues together! I am wearing the TopB paired with SkirtB. I wish I could “turn off” the attached hand bag on the top, or even better, if it came with 2 versions.
Haven you seen this dreamy Paradiso skybox & decor gacha from Haikei? I could decorate my entire sim with builds from this brand, but some of them are skyboxes. I prefer real homes with doors and porches, but brands take shortcuts and create skyboxes so they don’t have to build the exterior. There’s no rule in SL that you can’t rez a HOUSE in the sky, I do it all the time. Leave a comment down below if you want real houses!
What I’m Wearing:
Truth Hair – Delaney
M.Birdie – Merry Look (Earring, Shoes, Skirt B2, Top B1)
alaskametro – Spring Fling Nail Art
Pink Fuel – Diamond Shine (Nudes)
Pink Fuel – Sugar Rush (Eyeshadow)
