A Very Special Christmas Gift ♥

I hope everyone had a Safe and Jolly Christmas! My Christmas was a delight as I spent a part of the day with my Second Life Family/Friends. Tell me...What did Santa bring you for Christmas this year? I received some very nice and thoughtful gifts.  They were a reminder of how remarkable the gift of giving and receiving really is. However, one gift that I received stood out as bright as the star on the Christmas Tree and of course I had to share it with you guys.  Tears came to my eyes as I am now officially my niece's guardian.  I adopted her on Christmas Day as my very own daughter!  Boiling over with excitement, I can not begin to tell you how touched I am. It is truly a blessing. What a Very Special Gift Indeed! ♥

My daughter, Angel (known as niecy) wore a precious Snowflake Nighty from Turducken.  The outfit includes a hairbow, stockings with snowflakes on them, and some cute little slippers. I found a pose that included the Surprise Gift Box from Heirloom Poses.  It was the perfect gesture for this beautiful occasion.  An Amazing Gift for a Very Special Christmas!

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town ♥

Would you like to visit the North Pole? Tradition states that, Santa Claus lives at the North Pole, with magical elves and nine flying reindeer.  The idea became popular by the 1934 "Santa Claus is Coming To Town" song.  Children look forward to Santa and we tend to focus our attention on making Christmas a really big deal for the kids in our family.
Neicy and I started on our tour of Christmas Themed Sims.  Our first stop was of course, the "North Pole Village & Santa's Workshop. Talk about a wonderful place to visit! You can tour the Santa's Workshop, the Reindeer Barn, and the Elfementary School (Yes, there is an Elfementary School ♥). 
There are also a few other buildings of the village to visit. Santa's Elves are everywhere and they have hidden 12 Holiday Presents for you to find and open. It is truly remarkable!  You can visit by clicking here
We decided to dress neicy in a festive outfit, that included a glowing red nose.  Her nose lit up like the Christmas lights, as we enjoyed our moment together on the North Pole.  So Adorable!

Tis The Season To Be Jolly...♥

Fa la la la la, la la la la.... It's that time of the year! Time for Holiday Presents and Good Cheer! There is nothing like getting into the Spirit of Christmas, with some great Christmas Carols and Decorating. Neicy and I spent the weekend putting up Christmas Decorations. We went on the hunt and found some cute and quite crafty decorations. I decided to create a playlist of our favorite carols to play along as we sung and decorated both homes. We had a Merry Good Time!
Neicy dressed comfortable and warm for the occasion; wearing a precious sweater outfit (Leggings & Uggs Included) in green from Turducken.  We also added some cupcake earrings and two flower rings for those cute little fingers. So Adorable!
Wishing You a Joyous & Happy Holiday Season!

♥ Happy Turkey Day! ♥

If you are anything like me, I look forward too all the turkey, trimmings, and dessert on Thanksgiving Day, munching away to my heart's desire. Not to mention, spending quality time with my family; eating, laughing, and talking about old times. It is always a very special day to cherish!

I celebrated Thanksgiving early with my family and friends on Second Life.  We had a blast!  I decided to dress Niecy and her friend, Liv, as cute little turkeys before we went out exploring all the themed, "Thanksgiving Day" Sims. We found an adorable Turkey costume at BabyPie, that she recreated for 2012.  It was a little disappointing to see that it only came in Children, ToddleeDoo, and YaBu sizes...no size for Tots.  However, we do realize that we may have to change from Tot to one of the more popular avatars eventually, but for now we are enjoying the Tot size. Anyhoo, BabyPie brought a smile to my face when we located an older version of the Turkey Costume in Tots. We added a bow on the tummy area for a little pizazz and Gobble!  - Two Cute & Adorable Turkeys!

P.S. If you would like a place to visit, I ran across this Beautiful Child and Teen Friendly Sim, called Aero Pines Park in Autumn. They are hosting their "6th Annual Thanksgiving Day Celebration and Pow Wow", Nov. 17th - 25th. For further details, please visit the location by clicking here

Wishing Everyone a Safe & Happy Turkey Day from DollyBird!

Purple Passion ♥

Do you like the color Purple?  Purple is a vibrant color. It's noted that if you surround yourself with Purple you will have peace of mind. Most children love the color and its also niecy's favorite.

We decided to take a stroll to Baby Princess' Kids & Little Girls Cute Child Fashion Store and pick up some purple goodies.  The first goodie we decided to buy was a grape cupcake (my pet name for niecy is "cupcake"). We also found these cute little wings in purple, and a bottle with a bear pictured on it in purple; a toy bear to tag along is also included. What a Deal!
Niecy dug in her inventory and found this adorable Tweed Jacket in purple from Turducken. I was blown away by the cute matching buttons on each sleeve. We paired it with Pants and Boots from Oh Daisies Children's Boutique.  It turned out to be a Pretty Purple Fun Day after-all.

I love this time of the year.  It amazes me how the leaves change colors during Autumn or the Fall. The significance of Autumn marks the transition from Summer to Winter. Niecy and I, decided to spend some time and take pictures at the Natural Wilderness Sim in Loch Haven.  It has a Beautiful Autumn Scenery right now and its also a nice setting for an adult and their special someone.  There are so many amenities to enjoy; Cuddle Poses, Dancing, Skating, Horseback Riding, Chat Benches, a Bathhouse, and even 4 Private Skyboxes you can rent.  It's a must to visit this time of year.  Be sure to grab a notecard and read the rules...in which I truly appreciated, especially since I had niecy there with me.

We chose fall colors to wear for our quality time together.  I wore the gorgeous "Poppy" dress from Celoe in the Vulcan color.  Niecy wore an adorable "Faith"outfit from Baby Pie.  It came complete with the Hair-bow Headband, Sweater with Hood, Skirt, Leggings, Boots, and Cute Floral Glasses that gave the whole ensemble a special touch.  So Adorable!

Introducing... Mr. & Mrs. Vamp


First and foremost, I would like to extend a Special Prayer for all the people, including my family and friends on the East Coast that were affected by Hurricane Sandy.  May GOD be with each of you through this tragic time.  ♥

Halloween is over and even though I don't celebrate, I hope that all the kids and everyone, whom participated...had a Safe and Joyous one.
Mrs. Vamp
Neicy and I went Kitty hunting...again! We were only suppose to take a look at the new breeds that came out since her last purchase.  (Please note: She already has 20 cats...I blogged about them in a previous post).  Well to our surprise, KittyCats came out with this adorable pair of "Til Death Do Us Part" kitties.  We just could not pass them up.  They are transferable and sold as a pair. The price includes; 1 week of Food, Love5 Portable Food, a Collar Kit, and a Rideable Broom for you AND your cat to ride.  After running across this wonderful duo, adding them to the family was not in question.  I manage to get a few snapshots to share with you guys...Too Cute!

Child-Friendly Places in Second Life

The biggest challenge for child avatars is finding a suitable place to hang out. I started on a journey to find family-oriented and/or child-safe Sims that offer adventure, amusement, and fun. There are not very many that come up in the search listings, that I would per say qualify as a place to blog about.
In my search, I have placed a certain rather personal criteria for these particular places... and so far not many have measured up to my standards.


When visiting to determine if it's worth blogging...I look at the following factors that make up my criteria:
  • Rated "G"  
  • Attractiveness & Creativity
  • Environment/Setting - ( I went to visit a children's park and it was right next to the front entrance of a club/casino; it's just a few steps away and easily accessible). 
  • Type of Activities
  • Amount of traffic
If you have any recommendations, please leave a comment below or contact me in-world.  Meanwhile, I will continue on my search and collaborate with others to find suitable places for children and families to enjoy. 

I was able to locate this beautiful family park and was just amazed at the size and tranquility it offers.  
It's called, "Dreams of Hope, Family An Kids Fun Park". You can visit the location by clicking here
The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and there are plenty of activities to get into. Camping, Horseback Riding, 7-Seas Fishing, Boating, Dancing, Paintball, and Picnics...just to name a few. The photos only give you a taste of what awaits you; this Sim is truly a must to visit.

I Want to Wear a Dress ♥

Okay...I know its been awhile since my last post.  I had what I call..."Blogger's Block".  However, I realized how much I missed blogging and decided to return, adding it to my weekly schedule. This is a way for me to ensure that posts are done on a consistent basis.  So...I'm Back! Yay!

This past weekend niecy went skating.  I had the hardest time trying to convince her that she should wear some jeans or shorts.  She cried out..."TeeTee, I want to wear a dress, pweaseeee, pwetty pweaseeee!"  I must admit...after she said that, I had no other choice but to give in.  We flew on over to Turducken and found the cutest outfit.  Not only did she have loads of fun, she turned out to be the most adorable princess on skates.   


Here is a snapshot of the complete outfit with boots.  I also provided a closeup of the boots, so you can see just how cute they are with the added bows on the side.

Every Girl Should Have A Doll ♥

I came across this beautifully crafted Bebe Buttons Doll by Larnia Kids.  I couldn't help but stop by the store to take pictures for sharing with you.  These amazing dollies come in different versions with animation and sound. Matching outfits are available too! If you desire a custom doll, you can make a request to the creator. There is a simple form to fill out and all instructions are at the store in-world. I am pretty sure your little princess would love to add this one to her collection. Gift Cards are also available.

Windlight Settings

My focus this week is tailored toward enhancing my photos.  I've been experimenting and having fun with a variety of WindLight Settings.  There are so many of them already built-in the Second Life and Third Party Viewers.  One of my favorite bloggers Strawberry Singh, wrote a Fantastic WindLight Settings Tutorial. Not only did she provide a detailed description of what WindLight Settings are...she also shares downloadable links to her very own Windlight Settings and how to install them.  You can take a look at her tutorial, by clicking here. 

♥ Below are some photos I did using Strawberry's  Awesome WindLight Settings;

Howdy Cowgirl♥

I thought it would be a great idea for neicy to dress up as a Cowgirl while riding her horse that she found at Turducken.  We found this cute dress from Sparkle by NicoleAngel.  Its so adorable! The outfit is complete with the Cowgirl Hat, Bloomers, Tights, and even the Pink Cowgirl Boots. The horse has a rocking animation with different gestures.  Everything you need for your little princess to ride off into the Sunset ♥

A...B...C..., 1...2...3...

Its school time for my little neicy as we go out and explore the different Sims offering Pre-K at their location.  We found one in particular that peaked our interest; Willowdale Elementary & Middle School.  If you would like to visit their location, click here.  The classes are designed with the student in mind.  You can find enrollment information, class schedules, and other activities by visiting the desk in the front lobby.  

Neicy wore a Sailor Outfit from Turducken by Alkatrez Constantine.  The cute hat, boomers, and sandals are included.

Kitty Heaven


You know, we do have other favorites in our Second Life world, besides shopping.  My niece and I absolutely love the adorable KittyCats! They are cute kitties that you have to take care of just like you would a pet in the real world. You can find out more about them here.  Ok, are you ready for this? (Drum-roll please)... My niece has a total of 20 cats! 

We hung outside her home with one of her very first kitties, Rose Peddles.  She wore another precious dress from Turducken by Alkatrez Constantine. It was a group gift and come complete with two Bracelets, Boomers, a Headband, and a cute little pair of Flats.

Playtime



What child doesn't like toys right?  Well, on our shopping list for today was definitely a trip to the toy store.  We went to visit this small cute shop called Toys4Kids in Bay City - Maddequet.  Today, my niece wore this pretty ensemble from Baby Pie by Gabrielle Gregory. The outfit comes complete with a Hair-Bow, Bloomers, and Shoes. There is also a Matching Momma Strawberry Kiwi Rigged Mesh Tube Top, sold separately.  My little cupcake just happened to be matching the theme of the store; what a coincidence.  I thought...too cute! I had to get a photo.

At the End of The Rainbow


Yay!! My very first Second Life Fashion Blog and Post :)  I caught my niece in her dining room before she decided to run off and play.  This is a new beautiful dress from Turducken by Alkatraz Constantine. (Of course her store is listed as one of our favorite places to shop). The layers of rainbow color adds a nice twist from the hair-bows to the shoes (The hair-bows and shoes are included). We also left in the cute red bows that came with her hair from Truth Hair.  Very precious! Isn't she adorable?
