I have told my friends and said this to you my readers that majority of the time nowadays I am on Second Life, I am parked inside my cottage. When the clubs are made up of thirsty girls or guys with their dicks out, it is very hard to go outside the sanctuary of my pixel home unless of course it is to shop but even the kink events are used by people on the prowl.
I have been renting in this cottage for the past three years since 24th March 2014 and over the course of time, like my IMVU homes I have been removing/adding and buying more prims to give myself a very detailed and lived in home. I have a couple of favourite corners within the cottage of course- my bloggers desk is one of them, it is as cluttered as my real life one.
The kitchen is another favourite, I am a foodie, there is no denying this and the interactive kitchen set made by LAQ helps give the vibes of cooking or stealing food from the fridge. My dinner table has always had dishes sitting on top of it and it is usually of the Asian cuisine variety, 8f8, Vespertine and Poche are my usual designers that I buy from who create the detailed meals.
Since April I created a new corner for myself on the left side of my fireplace/vanity and it all started from the shelves of shoes made by YS&YS from a previous Arcade round and it branched out from there. The manga book shelves are rare items by Random.matter, absolutely love them, I have a ton of manga either in my closet shelves or on my desk in reality. The pouf my avatar is sitting on is by Stockholm & Lima who are known for their kink furniture. The neon signs on the wall are both by Random.matter too and the memo board above them is by Moss & Mink an upcoming kawaii creator.
The random stash above is on the left side of my desk and represents all the things I enjoy in my life- the ramen stash by Random.matter, the suitcases by either What next, *BOOM* or Tres Blah, the clipboards with different art boards also by Tres Blah, the I love Lucy doll by Garbaggio, the neon sign by Peaches, the cute little mail box and Good luck cat by *MishMish* and the money saving jar for long distance relationship by Cosmic Dust
It is perhaps the most overused phrase around the world but it is still appropriate even for a virtual house on Second Life. Last time I posted about my cottage in Savoy sim it was a couple of months ago, a lot has changed since that time with the exception of granted more prims to work with.
The entrance is still the same with a side door and the main entrance but the owner of Savoy has converted the entire sim into a beach looking area so I have more sand than grass on the ground. I placed a picnic blanket on the floor for my avatar to do paints and a cheese platter to snack. On the stairs I also have a lil mushroom house for fairies and by the main door I got 3 pet mice.
Inside the house you have the living room to the left and kitchen/dining area to the right before it was quite bland minus a tray of cupcakes on the kitchen tops now it is much more interactive with the purchases of appliances from Aphrodite’s shop/marketplace.
I now have an expresso machine that gives you all sorts of coffee after you press a button to turn it on and retrieve a mug from it. Then I also have a toaster which serves sandwiches, toast, croissants, bagels and even bruschetta! Next to that I have a milkshake maker for yummy drinks and a microwave that cooks you quick bites and junk food for lunch example my avi was eating a hot dog the other day like real life me 😀
Going past the kitchen and into the next room over where my bedroom is located, everyone knows how many times I have re-arranged, taken and added items to my blogging desk in-world and this is no exception. Some things have been removed and others have been kept. Tiny geisha dolls from the recent Fantasy Gacha carnival are now present.
