More About Me...

I've been around Second Life for a few years now - did the obligatory club scene, owned my own club. That didn't last too long. SL to me is now about content creation and fashion. I love to create (and learn) & to search for the most awesome creations in Second Life. I'll be opening my store, fucifino, soon and I will be showcasing my new creations here as well as all those awesome finds that I come across in my SL travels.

Another Side of me: Land Owner

I'm co-owner of Belle Island Estates. We offer land for rent or sale, residential or commercial. Currently offer 4096 lots for sale or rent. If you want something smaller, bigger, etc, we'll work with you to customize how you want your property.

Land Available for purchase/rent for commercial/residential

Belle Island Estates has a few properties that have become available for either purchase or rent. You'll find a list of them below, along with the details and the SLURL to the location so you can take a closer look. Tier/rent is paid at our Real Estate Office. All tiers/rents listed are weekly prices.  We're always willing to work with our tenants - if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me.  You don't know unless you ask. :-)

On Belle Island, we have quite a few different properties available:

The properties on Belle Island all are water front properties. They are very secluded with mountains surrounding you on three sides, giving you loads of privacy. All are 4096 m2 and have 937 prims. Purchase price is 1,000L and weekly tiers are 1,875L. If you would rather rent, please contact me so I can get you set up with our group so you can rez your items.  Here are the available SLURL's with pictures:

We also have lots available on Belle Retreat, a class 5 homestead, located just north of Belle Island. Each lot is 1/4 of a sim (16384 sqm) with 937 prims. If you're looking for square footage and even more privacy (and no snow), this is for you. The purchase price is 1,500L and the weekly tier is 1,900L.


Belle Island Estates: The Escape Skyhomes:

New to Belle Island Estates is The Escape. Ground level is a beautiful community area for all tenants of Belle Island Estates to enjoy and, in the sky, we have 6 skyboxes available for rent. We have used skyboxes from some of the coolest creators in SL ({what next}, theosophy, Awesome Blossom, to name a few). And my collection of skyhomes will continue to increase - I have quite an addiction to purchasing them - so if you would like a different skyhome, that can be arranged (within a reasonable prim limit, that is). The skyhomes come with 200 prims in which to decorate, with a weekly tier of 399L.  Please contact me in world with any questions you may have.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Week 4 (Plum)

52 weeks of color challenge week 4.2

Here we are with another installment of Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. This week brings Plum. So, when I started my search, I began to realize every designer and even the interwebs had a different notion of what Plum was. So I'm going with what I think of when I hear Plum and I think of a deep dark purple. And with all these challenges, I can't make myself where all the same color. Maybe next week?  :-)

I want to make a special shout out to Aranel Ah of BOOM with helping out with the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. BOOM has a vast array of color options. I love every item that I have of theirs (and I'm starting to amass a very nice collection).

Look #018 Happy Friday!

Look #018.1

Just a quick post before I head off to a night full of wonderful slumber (hopefully).

Today was Black Friday and it sucked - waiting in long lines and still not getting what I wanted gave me a killer headache. I came home and logged into SL and prepared for the One Eleven Event. I tried and tried to get to the vent, but TP try after try, I was denied. I figured the SL Black Friday was going to go the way of my RL Black Friday, until finally, this came up on my chat: [06:05 PM]  Requesting Teleport...
[06:05 PM]  Contacting new region.

I was SO happy! I was in the One Eleven Event.  Time to start clicking 'buy' on the items I wanted. Then, SCREECH!!  The prices were outrageous! There were no deals like in RL Black Friday - just limited edition items. I had to rethink things - fast - because there were a lot of bitchiness in the room (remove your prims, you're causing lag; stop moving, you're causing lag; you're standing still, you're causing lag; and my favorite, you're talking, you're causing lag).

So I picked up the !Ohmai Azure's Pico Sweater {Vintage}. I had to have this.  It's a lovely sweater. I had to do very little adjusting to the prims. Maybe I finally got my, uh, breast size right LOL!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Week 3 (Goldenrod)

So after completing last week's 52 Weeks of Color Challenge (link to my post), I went to post my blog URL on Luna's site and saw the color for this week - Goldenrod! And the first thought in my head was YIKES - This is gonna be a hard one! But then again, I got to do some shopping to pull this outfit together.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Week 2 (Blue)

52 weeks of color challenge week 2.1

I am impressed with myself. I am now on week 2 of a challenge! *does a happy dance* What challenge am I talking about, you ask? It's the Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. This week the challenge is the color Blue. This one is a hard for me. I am not a collector of blue. I actually try to stay away from it. But I did have two pieces in my inventory that I happen to love: my Surf Co. Belmar jeans and the Early Morning Cardigan from Fishy Strawberry. You've probably seen these jeans blogged by me like 100 times (an exaggeration I know, but I wear these A LOT) and I expect you'll see them in the future as well :-P

The Story of My Home

Story of Home02

The moment I saw Awesome Blossom creator, Clementine Ishtari, plurk about her upcoming skybox - The Story of Home - I got excited. Some people are shoe people, some are skin people (I fall into that category), and some are house people. I collect skyboxes and houses like people buy outfits. I am constantly changing my homes around and that's why I think I like skyboxes so much. I just keep stacking them in the sky.  I've currently have 5 skyboxes up in different phases of decoration.

I instantly knew from the picture and ads how I would decorate the place. It reminded me of my first apartment after I had graduated from college. It was small yet open and homey, with hardwood floors and cracked plaster walls. The place simply charmed me as has this skybox. The skybox comes with a sculpted radiator, ceiling fan, wrought iron patio railing and a "Home Begins" wall decal. The skybox and included items is 36 prims - not too shabby (Skybox itself is 26 prims)!

So I'll now shut my mouth and get to my pictures.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge - Week 1 (Grey)

I love a good challenge and when I read about Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, I decided to give it a go. I have been a bit of a slacker lately when it comes to my blogging. And this gives me a purpose to my blogging which I need because I have such a back log of awesome clothing I've purchased lately. I am hoping to use a mix of old and new items in the further challenges but for this week, you get to see all new items for the most part.

Joining me this time around is my dog, Izzie. I totally forgot that I had purchased her and she was so far down the Inventory folder chain, I felt sorry for her and rezzed her.  She's a cutie and looks very much like my RL dog, Bella.

Haters Gonna Hate

Haters Gonna Hate

I've been meaning to blog this outfit for a few days now but I've been currently redesigning my land. Then I received the new group gift from Olive Juice and I just had to take a picture to blog it. IsabellaGrace Baroque is the bomb - I always, always love anything she creates. She is creative and unique - a winning combination.

Two of my other current faves highlighted in this photo are from JANE and Surf Couture. I am so glad that Janie Marlowe is back and really digging (my son's current favorite her new items.

I hope you all were able to pick up the boots put out by Surf Couture for last week's 50L Friday.  I am in love with these boots. There's only one thing I wish that was different about these: that she released MORE colors.  hehehe
