We’ve had a few more great sponsors recently, and I was lucky enough to have the chance to talk to them about their favourite designs, their love for Second Life, and where they get their inspiration from. The past week had some fantastic sponsors, both for events and for our VIP group’s Happy Hour: House of Heart and Envied. If you haven’t yet had a chance to join the group, it’s something you should put on your immediate to-do list: ~*Ewing Events VIP Guest List*~. Enrollment is open and members get all kinds of benefits, such as discounts on ALTAMODA magazine advertisements, freebies from sponsors and much more. For those who are shamefully not yet in the group, I’ll give you a sneak peek at the most recent sponsors, and you can add another line on your to-do list, “Places to visit.”

When it comes to hair, House of Heart has become one of my favorites. Sheltered Heart and her RL husband, whom she actually met in SL, have worked hard to make House of Heart what it is today. Sheltered has created some of the most realistic looking hair you can find and she’s been doing it for almost two and a half years now.

She has a variety of designs to suit all kinds of styles. To do this she draws inspiration from a variety of places: hair magazines, clothing she loves, and people she meets. With so many styles to choose, she couldn’t begin to pick a favourite as I talked to her about them. She did let me know that she prefers short hair to long in RL and SL, though. I guess that makes two of us!

To accessorize with your great new hair, Envied is the first place you should go. Nava Valois has been making accessories in SL for over a year now and she offers a full range of products, from jewelry to shoes.

Her designs have a very feminine quality. She attributes this to the fact that she is a “girly girl” in RL. Nava has taken her love for the creativity that can be found in SL and put it into something else she loves: her designs. With her mind set that anything is possible, she creates items that can carry that dream forward to the residents of SL and continues expanding her range of products. She calls her line of engagement rings her favourite of all her designs, although, she just recently launched a fantastic shoe line. With the new shoe line adding to the amazing designs she already had in store the sky really is the limit for Envied.

Take a quick minute to go to both shops, there are so many great things to see!
