Reap the Rewards

Over the months I had been talking about charities, causes and celebrations. For any kind of event, especially a charity one, many might be interested, but may not have the lindens to donate. Or for that matter we all need lindens to shop.

What are the ways to earn lindens?

 Jobs - The popular job agencies in Second Life are Jobs Factory SL Job Agency,  VHEA Employment Agency, Pisces Jobs, Yunix Job Agency,  Jobstar, Job Squad, Top Jobs, People Pool, Job Agency.

 Business 

Others 

I would categorize Jobs as:

  • Club Jobs – Include the positions for: manager, host, DJs, dancers, etc. (Visit any job agency to get more information on openings and apply.)
  • City Jobs – Include positions like doctor, nurse, police, etc. (Since these are role play jobs, they seldom reach the job agencies. It’s better to approach the communities’ head for applying.)
  • Modelling Jobs – Include positions like models for ramp or designer boutique, etc. (There are various modelling agencies that train new models and help build their career. But, this also takes a lot of lindens. For starters, you may apply at shops to models their items. Clothing Couture, Grumble, etc hire models.)
  • Writer Jobs – Include positions like writer, poets, blogger, etc. (The best place to apply for these positions is to keep a tab on the  official communities page of Second Life. Join various groups related to Second Life bloggers on Facebook.) Continue reading

Look At Phoenix Rising

pheonix rising_003I found this really cool shop called Phoenix Rising, the shop is laid out really well but the best part is everything I clapped my eye’s on was only L$25. The clothes are really well made, the shop is very clean, sleek and modern so I hope you all get to pop in there and enjoy it as much as I did.

Coolmama is wearing an outfit called the Motive Red Phoenix rising and guess what that complete outfit was L$25 and for me Phoenix Rising Mason jeans and my top was called Phoenix Rising Push shirt in teal this came to a total cost of L$50

The Bottom Line

The Bottom line is a bargain basement store  on the Seabourne sim. Down there you will find many things from classy dresses to dungeons, all items sold in this store are priced between L$0 to L$99.

They sell period costumes, furniture and school clothing. They also have Neko items such as cages and clothing for adults and children which are  all at a reasonable price. They sell accessories such as hand bags, belts,  ties and bangles

 

They  have a small collection of men’s clothes plus  furniture including writing desks.

The store is a bit dark  and doesn’t seem too welcoming, there is no music on the sim but the overall sim is very lovely. There are two other stores here but for newcomer to SL this is a great place to find bargains and freebies. The store also has maternity department for the expecting mothers of Second Life

Alli & Ali Designs: Just Heaven

Alli & Ali Designs is a name that you will hear a lot in Second Life, they are one of the top hair designers in Second Life and a few months ago the Torch SL Guide had the privilege of Interviewing them:

 

How did Alli&Ali Designs come into existence?

We formed our business in February 2007, and it has evolved since that time.  We started by helping new residents get set up in SL, and set up a small shop with our initial designs.  The small shop eventually grew into a big shop, and is now the business you see today. 

What are the basic aims of Alli&Ali Designs ?  
Our mission is to make products that SL residents will enjoy using in various aspects of their Second Life, whether it be in role play, doing business, clubbing,  parties, events, and more.  We want people to have fun and look great! Our personal interest in this business is, that we want to have fun living out our creative side.

 

A&A Tekesha Hair Fire, (updo with curls)How does Alli&Ali Designs contribute to the newbie population of SL?

We’ve provided free tutorials since 2007 and we provide freebies of our products on a regular basis.  We also provide a safe respectful environment for all customers.  We understand that getting started in SL can be difficult, so we do what we can to ensure that they have a place to start without getting overwhelmed. 

Can you tell us a bit more about the dollarbie deals on your markplace store?

The dollarbies are special offers of our hairstyles in one color. The idea is, that people can try to wear the style in their daily life, for a low price, and if they wish to have other colors, they can buy our regular products at 175 L per color.
Visit their Online Store for fantastic dollarbie sales or go visit their inworld store to see more of their products. Interested in finding out about their upcoming items, check out The Alli&Ali Designs Blog.
