People seem to be VERY torn about the new Linden home theme CHALETS so I decided to go give them a look-see after Gogo posted the demo area SLURL on Plurk.
I admit I’m a dedicated Bellisserite. Bellissarian ? Regardless, I love my Linden home. I love the gorgeously landscaped neighborhoods and the beautiful homes. I’m still in a Victorian, loathe to give up my amazing beach spot. Might not give it up – we’ll just see won’t we.
So the theme seems to be a sort of a Dutch happening, with windmills and tulips. This demo area is a little sparse – maybe I’m spoiled with the AMAZING lush areas they built for Victorians and Traditional? Or perhaps I’m being picky as this is just a demo. I’ll assume that’s the case.
They had a bit of a brewfest park set up. I’m not sure if this would be part of the outdoor design. I would say that if it is – the beers should give me a beer. Don’t tease me with beer. That’s just unkind. Also these beers are nuts – way more than this pixel girl can drink.
My quibbles with this style are small. I’m unsure of the color schemes. They just don’t do it for me. Maybe they do it for you? That’s cool if so. One thing I do like in the various models I walked are the big open rooms with nice space for camming around. I HATE SMALL ROOMS where I am always struggling to see. Nice job moles.
This is my favorite model. Windows, windows, windows. The one quibble I’ve had with all my Linden homes is either that the windows suck OR they aren’t facing what is beautiful where I live. Such as I live on the beach, the ocean is behind me. I want to see the beach, but the windows at the back of my house SUCK.
You landscape beautifully, let us see outside!
This one meets my needs of great open rooms and wonderful windows. Very cute. The color is eh, but maybe the choices would spruce it up?
It was an interesting jaunt around the chalets. They aren’t for me, but I think it’s cool that they are really creating lots of different styles to appeal to everyone. But now that I’m back on Bellisseria I’ve decided to tool around and decide if I want to pull out a different house model for a while. I’ve been in this 1 story for a while. Who knows?
I’ve done a bit of wandering today. I couldn’t figure out why I was only bringing up some really lame locations from search. I love to just search random terms and see where I end up. It turns out my search wasn’t logged in properly and I was only bringing up G rated locations. There are so many amazing builds across the grid, I never know where I’m going to end up. This little shanty town offered a lovely waterfront view as well as some snacks and games.
It looks like amphibious plane is the best way to get here if you can’t teleport in. Adventure abounds in this spot.
I’ve had such a good time exploring this location. I love this bird. I kinda want it.
How has your week been going? I got some exciting secret news today. Maybe I’ll get to show you soon!
Over at Rainbow Reef – the best beach in SL – I discovered an Ice Cream truck today and quite frankly I couldn’t be ANY happier. I’m a glutton, I’m not even sorry. I’ll traverse the scariest of builds to eat new or pretty foods and frankly – this one is a pretty treat in a beautiful place. Double win.
I picked up a cute new bikini at the Saturday Sale this morning so I’m feeling pretty set for my Saturday. Grabbed this hair from MINA too.
I’ve got some gorgeous new makeup from RazzaNova from her Party Style Collection. Really gorgeous, rich colors for a night out or – a day at the beach. Whatever your pleasure.
If you feel like getting out of your house or off your platform – tomorrow is brunch at Rainbow Reef at 10 am SLT!

There is a gift to making houses. I’m so spoiled and picky that once I find myself in a house with poky walls where I find my camera running into trouble regularly, I abandon them post-haste. I can’t be bothered with houses that I can’t cam about in comfortably.
That’s probably why, despite some fun shaped rooms that might seem to be potential camera problems, I am in love with my twin treehouses. I make the living/sleeping quarters in one half with an alcove for my bath, and the other house is solely for kitchen and dining. It’s a bit like a summer house with the kitchen separate due to the heat. Continue reading →
It all started because of the ink. Scrolling through the Eloquence blog at events the other day, I saw these really pretty tattoos for SLINK bod and thought I would like them. But then I opened up the blog today to find the event and found ANOTHER event (Creation JP) and well – I had to go to that.
The next thing that happened was that Sasy went to the FIRST event (Kawaii Project Something I forget the name but maybe that’s the name I don’t know – oh there I linked it yes that’s the name) and she starts tossing me gacha extras. My old school gacha fever took hold and I started putting on everything I just had purchased and then some.
It’s guerilla styling – PUT ON EVERYTHING YOU JUST BOUGHT NOW AND SHOOT! GO GO GO GO! Continue reading →
