La Boheme’s Holiday Gifts under the Christmas Tree!


As has been tradition, each week of December you will find a new gift under our in-world store Christmas tree.  For that week only the gift is free and waiting to be scooped up and taken home with you.  This is our thank you to all of our patronage who have been so kind and supportive over the years (This will be our 12th Christmas in SL!).

Please note: Requests for gifts of a previous week will not be met.  Right next to the Christmas tree is a display of 42 holiday themed nail appliers all discounted to $20 for the entire month of December.  If you fail to grab one of the weekly gifts on time, you can purchase them from the wall display right there super cheap! ♥

La Boheme was nominated in the Avi Choice Awards O.o

I woke up today and did my usual morning routines.. To see I received the normal bulk load of messages on SL..  Of which one was from the Avi Choice Awards. O.o   I logged into SL to clear out the notices and ims, to see what might be amiss.  Sure enough, there is the notecard from the Avi Choice awards sitting in my folder.

Congratulations!  You have been nominated for an Avi Choice Award!  For the past few weeks Second Life residents have been submitting nominations, for the SLife, Fashion ad Arts categories, via the Avi Choice website.  After a process of consolidation, you are a finalist and eligible for voting.

The specific category you have been nominated for is:
Favorite Cosmetics Designer

Voting ends on Nov. 28th at 5pm, so spread the word to vote!  NOTE: Voting is limited to one vote, per avatar and ISP, per category.


Holy smokes, folks.  That is very kind of you to nominate me, whomever you are.  I send you hugs and smiles and you know, I just feel.. special.  And not in the short bus kind of way which is usually how I feel. lol  Thank you.   I don’t expect to win as there are so many talented cosmetic designers out there in SL, but the recognition is enough.  ♥

SL needs an internal Better Business Bureau!

This is a post of personal reflection to some very poor conduct of a sales group admin, a well as some suggestions for those who do run events, groups or salesroom on how to cut down on group spam which is a win/win situation for everyone involved in that group. I’ll tuck it behind this tag here, so that those who might not be interested aren’t forced to read it. ♥


On cosmetics for specific mesh head systems

One of my store bloggers asked me a question the other day, and therefore I just wanted to do a tiny explanation for everyone why things are as they are.

I make cosmetics (and mesh eyes and nail polish), and as a former skin designer I realize that making cosmetics entirely universal is very difficult and next to impossible unless making them for a specific skin.  As a third party cosmetics designer, we have to hope that our products look fine on any number of skins (granted the skin one wears beneath the cosmetics is not full of dark cosmetics to begin with) and can cover lips, not mess with eyebrows, etc.  The thing is, every designer of skins sets these differently, and therefore 100% camouflage is not possible always.  Sometimes a cosmetic layer over an existing skin just does not work with that specific skin, and as a third party designer it can be a challenge.


La Boheme @ We ♥ RP November round

Oh, so many goodies to blurb about here.   For this round of We ♥ Role Play, La Boheme has made a slew of new items: Lipsticks, eyeshadows, face paints all for the Catwa mesh system, and some mesh eyes!  All item sets are only $50 each for the duration of the event before they come home to the store at the end of the month and will be at full price: $75.

We ♥ RP runs from the 4th through to the end of the month.  Take a taxi there.

La Boheme – Mini Halloween Sale


From now through to the end of October 31st, La Boheme has put 16 sets of Halloweeny nail polish appliers on sale for only $10 a set.

Beyond this, we have two more sets of Halloween nails for free right below the wall display of the sale items (do not use vendors, sale items are on the wall to the left of the entryway), plus there are two more sets of nails through a hunt in the shop.

Happy Halloween!


Reminder previews of the four sets of nail polish appliers you can get as freebies/dollarbies til the end of the month at La Boheme!


La Boheme – Updating Store & Marketplace!

With the amount of items I make for various events each month, I don’t get to update the store with all the new stuff until that month has passed.  To access new items shown in posts here, you need to go to that current event to get the item while it is new and priced on sale, or wait until it comes home and goes full price.

The in-world shop has been updated with nearly a hundred items today which spans from October to before that (and some which slipped through the cracks).  Talus, who handles the marketplace side of the store, will be putting all these new items onto the marketplace most likely tomorrow.

Therefore, if you have been looking for items from previous months which were in posts here or on Flickr, you can get them now.  Sorry about the delay!

PS – This means I can enter the Fifty5 Thursday sales listings again with so many new items to circulate and put on sale for you folks. ♥

PPS – Callie Cline, a longstanding SL friend and one of the three fabulous creators of KittyCatS, contacted me this week.  I’ve had a store outlet on her sim for like a year now, and she is about to put her whole sim under construction to make it rock and add some cool features.  Thus, if you were using my outlet there, you won’t be able to until her sim re-opens.   I’m excited to see what she does with her sim. =)  — This is the ONLY outlet for La Boheme, I primarily use my own in-world shop and marketplace.  Oh, and also!  La Boheme will be in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar again this December.  Woot, free loot to come!

La Boheme @ Alchemy

Over at the monthly shopping event Alchemy, La Boheme is offering the 5 sets of Berlin lip appliers for the Catwa mesh head system for only $50 each, as well as six sets of nail polish appliers for only $40 each.  See below for all previews.

Alchemy opens on November 1st and runs until the 20th.  Take a taxi to Alchemy.
