Newbrooke, Linden Homes

@ Newbrooke; new Linden Homes

Hello from Newbrooke! These new modern-style homes are available in 512 or 1024 sqm. I don’t love these homes, but I’m warming up to them! There’s a lot of potential here, especially if you like the modern aesthetics. Like previous themes, you can choose to have any Newbrooke home style on your land.

Hair alpha glitch

Kuni hair alpha glitch

Is this driving anybody else crazy? Certain hair brands in Second Life have horrible alpha glitch issues! As you can see from my photo above, the glitch is unavoidable, unless Second Life and/or the creators figure out a fix. I don’t have this problem with all hair brands, just some.

Saving Money with Gogo

My Office

Flickr sent me an email recently, reminding me that my Flickr Pro subscription is up for renewal. I’ve subscribed to Flickr Pro for many years, dating back to 2007. The price was reasonable at first, at around $25 a year, then crept up to $50, now it’s $71.99! I’ve been paying for the subscription 2 years at a time, to get a slight discount. I did not know that Flickr raised the price so much, and wanted $139.99 from me for 2 years (this already includes savings). Before they could auto-renew my subscription, I went to cancel it to see if they would offer me any discounts to stay, and they did!

Soft Melody

Soft Melody

Hello from Soft Melody!

An Island Hidden in the sky.
As you will walk down the alley the blossom scent will lift you. The soft warm wind will hug you so very gently. The chimes will guide you and the cats? Well the cats will ignore you because they are still cats after all…

Soft Melody

I saw a preview of this place on Flickr several weeks ago, and I just knew it was going to be gorgeous. Being here is like being in a beautiful Japanese city in an Anime. There are sakura petals gently falling all over and it’s full of life and so many cats! I wish I could take this region home with me and keep it forever.

Lately, the term Metaverse has been thrown around by journalists as if it doesn’t already exist. Hello, I am in the metaverse right now, and it is called Second Life. We’re not waiting for the metaverse to happen, it’s been here for nearly twenty years. Show me another metaverse as complete as Second Life…

Reflections

Hello from Aurelias! I just want to thank all of the visitors for your sweet comments about the region and for submitting your photos to the Aurelias Flickr group. There’s a rush in Second Life to immediately go from Christmas/Winter to Spring. We’re taking our time on Aurelias and thawing out slowly! We already planning for Spring, but I just love the snow so much that it’s going to linger through March.

Aurelias, Charming Town

Aurelias

Visit Aurelias – we’re open!

I want to express my gratitude to Sparkle, my friend and region developer, for bringing this pixel dream to life. Aurelias is the result of a collaboration of ideas and friendship, and I’m overjoyed to be able to share it with you all. This region was opened during the winter and will gradually thaw out in the spring. Our fondness for the seasons and precipitation sets Aurelias apart from other places.

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.

Bumble Bee Cafe

Bumble Bee Cafe

Hello from the Bumble Bee Cafe on Aurelias! I’m wearing my favorite outfit of this season, the Neve fluffy hoodie from Lunar. This fluffy hoodie texture is excellent, I’m so impressed with the texturing and the HUD. Lunar is a brand to add to your wardrobe, they have lots of sweet and sexy offerings.
