Second Life: Comforts of Home



Three years I have called this cottage home on Second Life and it has been my rosy bubble away from all the wastelands and craziness that ensures from other residents in the virtual universe.

My dining table is always changing, depending on what is released by my favourite creators for events, this picture is this month recent as it was taken featuring the cutesy food made by Tentacio. It was released at 6republic earlier this month, its theme was Canada vs Japan. The adorable ginger girl is by Black Bantam and one of the rares that were released at Kustom9 in December 2015.

I even changed the wardrobe that I had from Birdy’s Boudoir to Nomi’s Princess closet that was released for the Gacha Gardens again earlier this month. It is more prim heavy but it had more detail and its pink, of course it had to be part of my bedroom. That side of the cottage is my favourite place to be parked in if I’m not going shopping or going to that new club that was introduced to me by one of my besties Aria.

Can you believe the above photo was taken outside of my cottage using the books background by Astralia, I love to read in reality, I have a wardrobe full of books and manga plus over thirty virtual books saved on my Kindle. Reading books with a cat on my lap, makes it even better as long as it is not hot outside as we are approaching the beginning of Summer here in Australia.

Pose is by Le Poppycock which features the cat on my chest, found at the September round of The Liason Collective.

I have taken a couple of photos featuring my beloved rug in my bedroom over the past two years, I have just changed things surrounding the pouf in the middle. Usually what is on the pink rug reflects my likes and hobbies, one side is make-up and taking pictures, the other side is painting and plenty of books. I have a lot of books in my cottage now that I think about it.

My favourite piece in the above photo is the white kitten by Half-Deer listening to its own tunes on the iPhone, so cute.

Everyone knows what my blogging desk looks like by now, doesn’t matter what I have removed (or added) it will always be the same clustered, chaotic mess as before. For friends who have seen my real life desk at home, it is exactly the same.

Second Life: Home is your Castle




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 theΒ 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

Second Life: Home Sweet Home



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 πŸ˜€

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.
