31-08-2010 Clothes, shoes, CRAZY shoes, hair and Jewelry


Today I just went to FabFree and got a wonderfull gown by Wolfmoon...Just take a look, I know you want it as much as I did (it was on the FabFree blog, thank you René)

It is blue and gold and AMAZING. It has a short skirt option, normal, cocktail, long and extra long and the detailing is fabulous. The bracelet is also a freebie from FabFree and will be shown below.
The shoes are by BabyMonkey, one of my fav shoe shops and I found them at FabFree too.

These shoes are at FabFree  and they are from BabyMonkey. They have the most lovely shoes, fatpacks in a lot of colors for 140 L$, but this pair is free at FabFree. The skin, toe nails and nails can be changed by clicking on the shoes.
Then I got some free hair at Fabfree by Exile (the one below, with and without cap)
The bracelets come with a ring too and they are so elegant. Also at Fabfree (yes yes I got a LOT there). They are made by U&R Dogs.

I also found a lovely dress by Bliss at colorful I LOVE it. Bliss has lovely gifts for group members so visit her shop too! (the hair and shoes are gifts from the Think Pink hunt, shoes also bt Babymonkey)

Talking about shoes: I love CRAZY shoes and they don't come much crazier than these ones with HAMSTERS. A dollarbie at Pixelpaws (in a box on the top floor).

Then I went to CrackBerry and they have a new concept: Pay as you like. You can decide what you want to pay for their clothes. I got a few examples here....(and I paid for them).

They are sooo CUTE ! And when you get them...think about the work the designer put into them...then think about what you want to pay...

Last but not least I got a notecard from Jesse Keyes and his shop. Jewelry again ladies...why not take a look at his freebies? I really like them :) And the other jewelry is up from 10 L$, so not expensive at all. (freebies shown in the picture)

Infant Bows Part 2

I had some offer some other great suggestions on how to get bows to stay on an infant heads.

Betts Family  offered this great advise:
If you live in a humid place like I do in Seattle Karo and KY don't work as well as in dry places so I discovered that a traditional Elmer's glue stick works wonders. . .bows stick all day and it washes out with water! I love the looks when you're caught glue-ing a bow on a babies head! I love your blog thanks for all the fun ideas.

I wanted to thank Betts family for giving us this information.  I live in such a dry climate I hadn't thought about the humidity. 

30-8-2010 More bits and pieces...


My inventory seems to fill up with bits and pieces from all over SL and they are all so cute I can't resist to share them with all girls in SL.

So again from different shops some nice gifts :)

I was at VelvetRythms and they have plenty MM boards and lucky chairs too. I wasn't very lucky (no R showed up) but I got a few very nice presents from their MM board. Also I joined the group and got a nice group gift :)

This dress was a group gift, and the 2 necklaces were freebies.

I was sorting out my inventory and came across a lot of things I wanted to here goes.

First of all I got a lovely necklace from Mylady. It is elegant and sexy and I love it. Group gift, so join and get it.

Then I remembered that I went to Ganked and WOW I love their jewelry ! It is not the usual style, it's extravagant and sexy and I want to have all, but I had to settle for the group gifts and could buy just one ...You get a lovely top hat as a group gift, a sweet gown, but also TWO All that Jazz necklaces.

The dress comes in 2 colors, one in the shop and one in the group messages

And the All that Jazz comes in ruby and white

The lovely HAIR is a group gift by Diva

To get an idea of the jewelry from Ganked I will insert a pic of the wall there. The jewelry is sold from 50 L up.

Then I quickly went to Mariposa...WOW a lovely set on their MM Board. Just get over there and have a look, also a lucky chair in the shop !
The set shown on the picture is from the LUCKY CHAIR.

And finally a great shop called Seldom Blue. They have 3 lucky chairs with some really good stuff and a few freebies and dollarbies. The chairs change fast so you do not have to wait long ;)

The gifts that are in the Lucky Chairs are all on the board above the 3 chairs.

These are 2 dresses from the LC

This lovely gown can be found at FabFree headquaters. The jewelry is also a gift at the FabFree store.
And last but not least: the lovely purple dress is a dollarbie at Seldom Blue.

27-8-2010 Imani 5 L clothes and Ribbon Lucky Boards


I have been standing at the Lucky boards at Ribbon for ages and finally R came up and I got the cute flipflops with legwarmer AND the Ribbon doll pink dress too. (it is also available in white on the lucky board but I wasn't THAT lucky).

The flipflops come with cute legwarmers in lace.

Then I went to Imani. All clothes there are 5L and you have a wide choice. I bought just a few....don't have that much to spend in SL :)

When you get this dress you get it in plain and in 2 colors in one folder. Not too bad, 2 dresses for 5 L$.

I simply LOVE this one!

This green one is SKIRT only. The top is by Mischief (older one)

The HAIR is by Lollipopz (MM board for group members)
and the skin is by LAQ (Blondie, not free)

The Messy Bun Step by Step Instructions

Recently I have had a lot of people asking me about my messy bun.  So here goes if these are not clear please ask questions I will do my best to explain what I do.

Because we don't just like plain messy buns at our house you will get a few instructions on rolls for the front of the hair.
I first made a roll across the front of her head this pulls all the bangs out of her face.
I then made a 2nd roll and 3rd rolls as shown below.  1 almost parallel to the first and the 2nd to make a t. I secured them in place with small bobby pins
Then I made 3 more rolls.  Another one parallel to the 2nd roll and one that follows the t shaped one.  The last one is parallel as shown below.  (I hope all that made sense if not try and look at the picture)
Now to start the messy bun.  Take all the hair and put it into a ponytail.  Don't pull the hair all the way through on the last loop of your elastic.
The back of the hair will look like this after all the hair is into the ponytail.
Now I take the hair that is looped and pull it upwards towards her head.  This makes a circle shape in her hair secure this with a clear small elastic.
Below is the hair after I have pulled the loop upwards. 

Now bobby pins become your best friend.  I use bobby pins to put the hair where I want it as shown below.  If you put the hair into a bobby pin and it looks to small put your finger in the loop and pull a little bit.  You can also pull small amounts of hair and pull it to the other side and secure with bobby pins. 
Below is the finished messy bun.  If this doesn't make sense please ask me more questions.
