Yesterday it became official! We were on trial with two adorable little girls Juliana and Melanie and our trial came to an end and I think they are the most adorable, and amazing kiddos ever. So fun and interactive and I’m so happy to welcome them home.
Last week we started decorating their room. I gathered the girls up to the platform and put out a bunch of things and they made of pile of some of the stuff that they wanted and then I took the pile of saved stuff and rezzed in the house and we started moving it all around and of course they added stuff and I’m so happy with their room!
Sometimes its a bit tricky getting all the things that you want to work together in a room and furniture for kids in Second life can be a bit tricky. The Penelope beds from Mudhoney “wowwed” me at first sight and the canopy over the beds is something that my god bebe did and I fell in love with and used it for their room. Mudhoney also made these pretty ruffled curtains.
The canopy is from an older garden party set from Cheeky Pea with Pilot. I’m not certain on where it is now but its from one of those stores.
Lark has many cute things also for a child room. Some of the panda stuff, the mobiles, some of the books and the cupcakes. Apple Fall has many little odds and ends like the frames on the wall, the dream sign, the little doll house and the dress form.
I would also try Half Deer for the pandas in the corner and Floorplan little lights, books on the floor and things. Mishmish is another favorite of mine too – the peacocks, and fairy and so many cute things.
Their room is one of my favorites in the house. I’m still decorating but I hope to post more soon!
I wanted to do a home post because of all the great home items at Collabor88 this round which ends on December the 6th. You still have time to go and pick up some of these pieces.
I used the Cabin from Scarlet Creative, living room furniture from Mudhoney, Odds and ends from Aphrodite, the bedroom from Pilot, Some odds and ends from Apple Fall, The cabinet from Schadenfreude, lighting fixtures from floorplan and a few things that were not at Collabor88 but are easy enough to find.
I also bought the new Christmas/Holiday Tree from Laqroki Decor. If you see something that I haven’t listed please feel free to leave a comment or shoot an IM.
Have a good Black Friday!
I’ve been trying to post about the Love Donna Flora Event every day this week and I wanted to bring up a few things that I found that were awesome 100 percent donation items. This dress from Baiastice is so glamorous and fit for a queen, to which of course I needed a crown so this crown from Remarkable Oblivion fit the bill along with this skin from Pink Fuel that comes with all your appliers I might add and this hair from La Viere. All of these things are fabulous. The pose that I’m using is from .click
The jewelry of course is from Squinternet Larnia, it’s so beautiful and is available at her shop.
Another great event going on right now is Zodiac, and it is on my favorite round – Leo but unfortunately it is the last time for Zodiac and it has a great line up right now. This Lion is a gacha item from Adore & Abhor and these decorative crowns are from Pilot but there is much more to see so you should go take a look before it’s too late!
This was a very good weekend in SL for shopping and events and so I’m gonna break it up into three posts highlighting my favorite parts.
This Otter avatar is made by the super talented Anya Ohmai and you can get it (among a ton of other amazing things) at Summer Fest. Summerfest ’13 bagan on June 15th and will end on June 29th. This event is great because so many of my favorite designers are participating. For more info on who is participating check out this post here: http://fridayofsl.com/summerfest13/
Summerfest ’13 was crazy packed this weekend, with reason, so here is your Slurl: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/floorplan/139/143/27
So I’ve been doing a bit of decorating with some of the Collabor88 stuff this round, and I love the fun that has been put into it. This inflatable chair and table set from Pilot is just fantastic as well as these cute little Zodiac Chill pillows from Tableau Viviant. I also have that really cool night stand from Alouette in the background.
I am wearing (also from Collabor88) A cute little frock dress from Fashionably Dead, and hair from D!va. I am also wearing (not from Collabor88) shoes from Gos Boutique.
Amaliscious Destiny of .Happy Homes. has released a new and adorable three bedroom family home. The house does contain mesh and it is only 165 prims.
You can visit the Sofia Cottage here in world to see for yourself but I find that with it’s unique floor plan and spacious rooms that this house is perfect for a family or perhaps for a couple that would like a few extra guest bedrooms. The house has a laundry area, bathroom, living room, family room or study, three bedrooms, dining room and the exterior is very charming. You can copy and mod the house as well.
I tried to include several photos to give some decorating ideas and used pieces from The Loft, Lisp, Pilot, Mudhoney, LAQ Decor, Bazar, Noble home furnishings, and Alouette are some of the places that I enjoy shopping at that I put pieces here and there in the house. This home has much potential for cuteness though, so if you are in the market for a new home or just enjoy collecting houses like I do, this could be the perfect house for you!
Again, you can see it in world here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Onderon/35/204/27
You can also purchase it on the marketplace here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Happy-Homes-The-Sofia-Cottage/4892953

I wore these shoes all through out my weekend in SL, not wanting to remove them. They are a higher end shoe, a bit of couture to play with in our pixelized world. These shoes are dreamy. Scalloped edges rippling under heel wrapping your feet in sinuous leather set in a shibari-like frame. Sexy, indeed. Dangerously so.
You could wear these any number of ways, dressed up with that sexy little black dress or for greeting your lover in the nude, anything could happen. But how cool are these? You really should go see for yourself and demo a pair already at Gos Boutique!
(My pose is from Ooo Studios, the bed is from Pilot, my hair is from Tram, my eyelids are from Slink and the house is from Ionic @ The Chapter Four event)
This month Collabor88 has gone “Kitsch” with a color palate that is perfect to chase away those winter drabs! I found a lot of cute in this round and sort of mashed it all together in the photo above. The couch and face vases are from Pilot. The couch comes as either adult or pg and has many cute couple animations. The table and prints are part of the offering from Lisp Bazaar and the crazy colorful cats are from Intrigue, all which can be gotten under one roof at Collabor88!
As you know if you’ve been reading the feeds, The skin fair is coming back and there are many exciting things that are a buzz right now. I had the good fortune of trying out this skin that will be newly released from Izzie’s at the Skin fair. I really love Izzie’s skins in general but I have a special place in my heart for the ginger edition of this skin. I just loveeeee the freckles but below I have took a snap shot of all of the tones. Each tone from light to darkest is lovely to me.
I also did a mash up of the make up options that each tone comes with and I just find them to all be really cute and you could try so many different combinations. I love a skin with endless possibilities.
In the back ground of the first photo is the Tiffany bedroom set Pilot which is now at Collabor88. Its a beautiful set and all mesh and comes with some lovely animations. You can get it in a PG or Adult version. I am also using the Barnesworth Anubis Haight Skybox also at Collabor88.
I am wearing lingerie from Drift at The Dressing Room Fusion, hair from Truth that is brand new called Marisol and feet from Gos Boutique. My poses are also from Izzies.
A friend of mine, KateMarie Westminster has opened a new store on the marketplace for her store Westminster Family Homes in hopes of making many homes in SL especially for families. Her builds are low in prim, this is a five bedroom home with only 225 prims and it partially mesh for only 555L on promo. It’s a steal!
There is currently no in world store but if you send her a note card she would be more than happy to show you the house in world. You can check out the Beckett here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/PROMO-Westminster-Family-HomesThe-Beckett-Family-Home/4518244
I decorated it a bit and used furniture that you can get from Lisp, Apple Fall, Cheeky Pea, Pilot, the Loft and What Next. It is very cute and I know that she has another really cute house coming out soon.
