Happy 1 Month Ryleigh!

familycloseup

Dear Ryleigh/Cora,

It’s been an amazing month, and yet I feel like I’ve known you longer. I can’t really explain all that it means to me that you came into my life but I’m glad that you did. As if by magic you appeared.

I just want you know that you are very special to me and I hope that this is the first of many months. Thank you for getting my attention and thank you even more for becoming my kiddo and friend and being an adorable little sister to Syleee!

You made our family complete and our house a home.
You are my princess, starfish, tator-tot, Ry Ry Boo Boo!

Love, Mom.

Under the stars

Every so often a skybox will inspire me to make a little hide-away from the world. Vespertine made just that skybox for Fifty Linden Friday and I put a bunch of my favorite things in it and made a cozy little spot for snuggles.

I used furniture from LAQ, The Loft, Trompe Loeli, Alouette, Fri.day, Apple Fall, Zigana, Floorplan, Lisp, Dutchie, and Bazar. These are some of my favorite furniture places to shop in SL. If you wanna know where something is from – ask me! I love comments­čśŤ

Apple Fall & Scarlet Creative at Collabor88

c

I finally got my bedroom shaped up how I wanted it and wanted to show this very pretty bedroom set from Apple Fall and Scarlet Creative (who did the Wardrobe and Stool) which you can still get at Collabor88 for about another week or so.

The bed is beautiful and I love the soft look of the covers, the dresser and night stands to the dream sign over the bed and doll house complete with the botanical pics are just perfect to me. I love these pieces that really make your Second Life Home complete.

I also used things in the photos not at Collabor88 from Trompe Loeli, Tres Blah gacha vanity stuff, and emm shop (the little craft cabinets are new and adorable) I hope you like my bedroom!

What Next – Playground Roundabout

merry

I was browsing Fifty Linden Friday with my daughter Ryleigh and we ended up at What Next and I could not resist this Merry Go Round! I bought it right away because for VIP members yesterday and I’m not sure if it still is but it was half off!

It has such cute poses in it and the only trick is it moves – but I got some cute shots of me on it while wearing this new mesh ruffled swim suit from Lark at the Kollective.

Lark’s Ruffled Swimsuit @ the Kollective

sien

It’s a perfect day for a little BBQ and this adorable new swimsuit from Sienia Trevellion of Lark is just the thing to wear. I love polka dots and ruffles and mesh – Oh my! The Kollective is starting a new round and that is where you can pick up this cute suit.

The back is exposed and the bottom has a modest but flirty cut that will show off your lower back dimples. Individual swimsuits include a color change HUD that lets you choose from 6 ruffle shades. For more info about the suit check out Sienia’s blog post here: http://larksl.wordpress.com/2013/07/27/lark-blooming-summer/

Floorplan @ Collabor88

So, you know with all the other events going on right now.. it would be an excellent time to go and check out Collabor88 before the soon to be fantastic August Birthday round starts!

I wanted to do a few posts before the June rounded ended highlighting one of my favorite parts about Collabor88 – the furniture. Floorplan always amazes me with the sets that they have and this one (the Midsummer Retreat) in particular looks amazing on my land.

Nice and breezy and perfect for summer daydreams.

Petite Bowtique makes a new mesh bedroom set for children!

PicMonkey Collage

Petite Bowtique has recently released a brand new bedroom set for Second Life Kids that is mesh (total land impact for everything is 56)

You can either buy the entire set or if you’ve already been shopping at Limited 50 you can simple just purchase the expansion set of this bedroom. The set is quite cute and I love the pink and green, which is perfect for your darling little princess! My favorite part is the mirror that has different dance animations in it that are quite a blast. There is also a sweet little vanity and desk set as well as a closet and a lot of other must see accesories.

You can find out more about the “Darling Set” in this blog post here: http://petitebowtiquesl.wordpress.com/2013/07/24/darling-bedroom/

She would be Queen

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!

[Noble] Distinguished Furnishings @ Love Donna Flora

[Noble] Distinguished Furnishings by Brie Pinazzo has made this cute dining room set for Love Donna Flora.

My friend Cae came over during region restarts the other day and she had some wine, tea and cupcakes with me which is a part of this set. I had it all set up and she just came over and sat down and I always have the best conversations with her. If you are looking for a new dining set – this is quite cute and you will be helping the Donna Flora fundraiser in the process!

The Love Donna Flora event has started today so get your butt over there and shop already!

Love Donna Flora – Bring on the Whimsy

donnaflora

My posts are mostly about the event that will be opening tomorrow in Second Life – Love Donna Flora and I’ve been going around and looking at the event and I’m really impressed at the effort that has been made because it is nice to see our community as one, it’ makes me feel good.

The outfit I’m wearing in this post I went a bit whimsical for.
donnaflora2

I took this pretty hair from Tableau Viviant and this top, lace capri tights and Antlers from Lark and these kitty shoes from Fri.day which are all items you can get at the Love Donna Flora and I used these poses from .click and brought even more whimsy into the outfit with the mouthie from Mish Mish and this cute bunny plushy from Anya Ohmai.
