Costa Blanco in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Caitlyn and I first visited Costa Blanco in January 2017, but I didn’t get to blog about it at the time, so a re-visit seemed in order. Designed by Gabrian Lascelles (Gothicgaylord), the region is described as “situated in the southernmost province of Sweden, and is connected by weather and theme with Bretagne in France.”Continue reading “Costa Blanco in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”

A return to The Mill in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Just as in the physical world, there are certain places in Second Life we’re drawn back to again and again. This might be because the place has special significance, or because it is held by friends or offers a opportunities or photography or simple enjoyment, or because it is like the seasons – constantly changingContinue reading “A return to The Mill in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”

An Asian Fusion in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

We received word that Sera Bellic had given her Homeland region of Oyster Bay a further make-over some 24 hours before it appeared in the Destination Guide Highlights for Friday, April 28th – and I was immediately intrigued by the theme title: Asian Fusion.

A different Saint Tropez in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Hear or read the words “Saint-Tropez”, and the chances are your thoughts will turn to the French Riviera, blue Mediterranean waters, yachts and sun-kissed bodies. While there is a beach at Saint Tropez in Second Life, it’s probably not the kind you’re going to want to spend time visiting for a spot of sunbathing; norContinue reading “A different Saint Tropez in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”

PeTOu’s perfection in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

PeTOu is a place that is bound to draw me for a number of reasons. The first is the strong Oriental influence exhibited across this Full region. The second is the way the region uses Linden water throughout to naturally add ambience and harmony to the environment. And the third reason is that is anotherContinue reading “PeTOu’s perfection in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”

The Heart of the Sea in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

The Heart of the Sea is a marvellous homestead region design by Elyjia (Elyjia Baxton) and Brayan Friller (Brayan26 Friller) that Caitlyn and I were (once again!) pointed towards by Shakespeare (SkinnyNilla) as a result of one of our regular exchanges of landmarks with one another. For those wishing to spend it in idyllic, naturalContinue reading “The Heart of the Sea in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”

A Mystical Fae Forest in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Mystical Fae Forest, occupying the Homestead region of Elvenshire, is precisely what the name implies: a mystical realm caught in time and wrapped in the soft light of a winter’s eve.

Spring? Apparently! – Ce Soir Arts – Be inspired tonight!

We are excited as the weather shifts more firmly toward spring. One sign is the incredible wind we are experiencing in these rolling hills. WHOOSH! The trees are bending to and fro and the whirlygig on top of the house is whirring round so fast it seems that it might take flight at any second!Continue reading “Spring? Apparently! – Ce Soir Arts – Be inspired tonight!”

A return to NorderNey in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

I was surprised to note that it’s been getting towards three years since I last visited NorderNey, Jacky Macpherson’s homestead design (see here for more). A lot has happened since then, not the least of which is Jacky has moved, so that the region now has a sim of its own bearing the same name,Continue reading “A return to NorderNey in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”

The Calas Skate-o-Rama in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

But be careful crossing the highway!”It actually took us a couple of days to get the opportunity to visit, but with Friday night sittingContinue reading “The Calas Skate-o-Rama in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”

A NonStop visit in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

NonStop, a homestead region by Cherish Demonge, is presented as “Second Life’s ultimate forest”.  I’d personally regard the setting as more coastal / rural than “forest” – while there are trees aplenty, they mostly look and feel more like woodland, occupying the more rugged parts of the region and offering pleasant glades and walks betweenContinue reading “A NonStop visit in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World”
