Ryleigh and I for Love Donna Flora

camping

You might not know this but Love Donna Flora has items for SL Kids as well as Adults.

The poses in this post are from .click, which is one of my favorite family poses stores. Most of the family poses that I use come from .click, as they have a great selection. This is a parent/child pose and it is very cute – my Daughter Ryleigh actually had the idea to put it in our little forest area with this Gacha tent from Floorplan. It worked out very well for an adorable family photo for the both of us.

Ryleigh’s outfit is from Little Closet which is an adorable item that you can find at Love Donna Flora and my shirt is from HOF at the Love Donna Flora event and my hair is from La Viere, also at Love Donna Flora and the little monkey in the photo is from Mish Mish – these poses are also from Love Donna Flora from .click

The Love Donna Flora Sim

PicMonkey Collage

I wanted to take some photos of the Love Donna Flora sim as it will open for everyone on July 25th and I wanted to give people an idea of what to expect as well as take some pretty photos of the sim itself. I like the layout for this event very much. It is not fussy and is easy to navigate and all of the stores are around the edge of the sim.

I took this excerpt from Cajsa Lilliehook’s group notice telling about the sim:

“The sim was donated by Chablish Kinsella, an act of stunning generosity that made it possible to do this big an event.

Felicity Blumenthal did the sim design and decor. Perhaps being a blogger influenced her because with the elevated town over the vineyards and the market road, there are uninterrupted views for picture-taking. She considered sight lines which you will see when you walk around.

Petite Bowtique for Love Donna Flora

collage

My daughter Ryleigh, owner of Petite Bowtique is also participating in the Love Donna Flora event and she made some really sweet and adorable matching mother and daughter dresses. You can also purchase the dresses separately. They are very cute and great for photos with your little one or fashionable enough to wear alone.

Blog with a kiddo challenge

5

A few days ago I was snapping a few photos of my daughter Ryleigh and I got the idea to get rez another pose stand right next to her and take some photos along side of her. I was already wearing this dress from Tres Blah which is at Collabor88 right now and I thought it was kinda matchy with hers so I put on the hair and glasses that to me are similar and and we got out our face animators and had a lot of fun!

So my challenge to you fellow bloggers
is to grab a kiddo – it could be your daughter, son, sister, brother cousin, friend.. etc and take a few fun snaps.

You just gotta get an pose stand and make a copy of it and viola – there you go, or you can get a pose for two people if you want! You can switch the poses around and get out your own face animators if you wanna and well it was a blast to do this with Ryleigh! She had fun too and then boom you have new photos that are adorable! It’s pretty easy right?

Alternately if you are a kid blogger grab a parent and link me your post so I can see it!

How do you deal with criticism?

In either life I am way too sensitive. I’m working on it though, or trying to. I can get really emotional if I am doing my best for someone and no matter what they cannot be pleased because really I’m a people-pleaser. If it’s presented in a constructive way though I tend to deal with it better but if it’s given to me by someone I really admire then it’s a bit harder.

What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do?
I think the people that go out of their way to hurt people that don’t deserve it. The Secrets on Sunday are for the most part stupid, viscous and unnecessary. I kinda wish they would just not publish them anymore because people don’t play nice and I mean sure I look at them but if they were not there anymore people would get over it/forget about it I think. By keeping them there it enables a platform for hate, and sad but try that is what the majority use the secrets for.

Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why?
I don’t know – There are people that I admire in SL but I’d have lunch with just about anyone that is awesome.

Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Not gonna name names but there are a few people that are on my hot list for this that I cannot stand. The list is getting smaller though and I’m just trying to let that all go though. The older I get the more that I see that I don’t have to get along with everyone and they don’t have to like me either.

What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you? I would say the Secrets on Sunday. I think it had potential to be a creative/positive platform and do some good but people can’t have nice things.

What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about? Sometimes I’d like to have a store but I really don’t know what I’d make.

What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you? Lol maybe Honeybuns, but I dug it. Oh, I call my daughter Ryleigh – Princess Starfish, tator-tot Ry Ry Boo-Boo. I also call my other daughter Syleee a Bratinista.

Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident? Yeah.

Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for. I miss Marleen Vaughan. It was so much fun when she was around and I first started blogging with her and all the good times that we had. She’s the best.

What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you? I’d be tickled if someone made something and named it after me, which my Ryleigh already has and you can see it here: http://petitebowtiquesl.wordpress.com/2013/06/28/romp-around-50l-friday-628/

In this picture are a few things that I love from Collabor88 right now. This Cho skin from Essences and this jewelry set from Yummy and I’m also wearing the dress from Ison but you can’t see it but its really really beautiful and you should give it a demo!

Essences is not my go to skin but I’m really liking this skin brand. The Cho skin is extra cute and I love the lips. It’s available right now at Collabor88 and in the same building you can find this set from Yummy and I just really adore it and you can get it in different colors!

It’s Friday, go shopping!

Petite Bowtique @ Limited 50

darlingdiva

Hi, me again! I wanted to show something else from Limited 50 from Petite Bowtique. I like this set because it would be great furniture and/or a great prop for a childs room but it also could be adjusted for adults and the dances in the mirror are a lot of fun!

You could even make your own little dressing room out of this and take fabulous dress up photos – and the set is also customizable with your stamped on the rug! It would be best to go grab this set asap though because it is only sold in limited quantities of 50 and when its gone, it’s gone! Here is your Slurl to check it out: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Jubilee/154/96/23

Limited50 Designers

There are also many other cool brands participating, I like how this event mixes kid and adult designers and offers some really cool things. Noodles has some really cool ears for sale and Aux has some antlers that you are gonna need and Aura’s has a set out that just may make your child take a bath! I also love love love the salt and pepper shaker set from Lark. Go see for yourself! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Jubilee/154/96/23
