Avakin Life News

What's going on in Avakin this week
Cupid's Quest

**All This Month!!!** - With Valentines Day fast approaching, all this month Lockwood have given us the Cupid's Quest event to help us celebrate.

To begin our quest, we must first visit LKWD Cupid at the Liberty Plaza social spot and she will give us a letter to deliver to the first lucky Valentine and receive the next. Each day we need to deliver the next letter and so on over 7 days, before returning to see Cupid for a super sweet gift!!!

The event will run between the 7th-28th February, so you have plenty of opportunity to deliver all 7 letters. Good luck and enjoy the quest!!!

Check out some very useful video guides from MQK TV later in our YouTube feature to help you on your quest and below is an awesome reference key from Sapphy-Kelly Reece.

#Gameblast17

On the 25th February, the awesome Lockwood team are taking part in the #Gameblast17 event to raise money for the charity SpecialEffect.

The amazing charity works to enable people with physically restrictive disabilities the chance to interact with games through specialised equipment.

To take part in #Gamesblast17, the Lockwood team are hosting a games marathon to raise money for the charity. They are hoping to raise £1000 and it'd be great if we could all try and support them in doing that by donating/sponsoring them.

Click the link below and show your support by visiting their Twitch page and the team will be streaming live from midday on the 25th February for us to join in the fun also at the link below.

The Ultimate Blushing Bride look

Emena Avakin's 'Look of the Day'

Outfit of the Day: The Valentine

One way to impress your significant other on this special occasion. A beautiful dress, flowing hair, red lips and a rose for your lover 🌹

As this dress is quite long your shoes will not be seen, it's up to you what you wish to wear on your feet.

Please note: In the past the Rose item would disappear from the store after Valentine's Day. Make sure you buy it in case it disappears again!

Special thank you to Amanda Henry for gifting the dress, please check out her page ♥️

Avakin Life Apartment Design

A big part of Avakin Life is owning your own apartment and customising it to suit your taste or perhaps for that special occasion/event. With so many apartments now available to buy or win, it's sometimes difficult to keep up with what's new and what items are inclusive to collect.

Luckily for us, Brandy Burry's brilliant Avakin Life Apartment Design Facebook/Instagram pages are a great source of information on all the latest apartment releases and provides some great ideas, hints, tips and examples on how to decorate each apartment to get us started. The page also boasts some beautiful photography.

This week we feature Lockwood's run down on the new Raditya Luxury Villa apartment shared on the page, we once again find how our work can be included on the Avakin Life - Apartment Design Facebook/Instagram pages, we find out the winners of the recent competition and Brandy shows us some of her useful ideas, hints and tips for the brand new Raditya Luxury Villa apartment.
