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

**All This Month!!!** - Remember the Avakin Cupid Quest is still running up until the end of the month, so we still of plenty of time to deliver all 7 valentines letters and return back to LKWD Cupid to collect the final prize.

To help you, check out some very useful video guides from MQK TV included again later in our YouTube feature and below is an awesome reference key from Sapphy-Kelly Reece.

**All This Week!!!** - All this week from 14th-21st February, we can enjoy some great soulful music from singer Daisy Godfrey at The Venue social spot.

As always, there is free merchandise to collect when visiting the spot and Daisy herself was on-game on Saturday for us to meet and chat with her.

Also, check out an exclusive interview with Daisy later on in this edition by MQK TV and Sapphy-Kelly Reece.

All this week!!!
#Gameblast17

Remember 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.

Lockwood have always listened to the feedback and suggestions from players and fans of the game.

This week for the girls in particular, we received masses of costumes in many themes to cover most role-play scenario. The guys received less items in their collection, but over the last few weeks throughout the Valentines period, we can all agree we have received tons of amazing costumes from such a popular brand.

Avistyle Weekly 'Look of the Day'

Outfit of the Day: The Sexy Office Clerk

This is the perfect outfit for looking cute and sexy in the office and for drinks at a bar afterwards by simply removing the glasses.

The Yume Coffee Date outfit already includes a high-waisted skirt accessorised with a gorgeous belt, but the look is completed with black stockings, stilettos and glossy bag. Finally add a platted long hairstyle and glasses to finish off the look, with light shadow makeup and a darker shade of lipstick.

You would probably want to lose the tattoos, although I decided to keep mine 🤓

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 Brandy shows us some of her useful ideas, hints and tips perfect for a romantic date, we take a look at some awesome apartment-related videos from YouTuber 4Geekingoutloud and we once again remind you how your work could be included on the Avakin Life - Apartment Design Facebook/Instagram pages.

A Sit Down With Sapphy

Sapphy-Kelly Reece knows everybody.... Everybody knows Sapphy!!!.... So who better to send out into the world of Avakin each week to ask the community for an insight into their own Avakin Life.

This week Sapphy and MQK TV managed to catch-up with Venue performer Daisy Godfrey to find out more about her music and Sapphy also caught up with community members Kitty|Wü Tang| and ÄriaňňaŁyňňxTRDx to ask them about their Avakin Lives.

MQK TV: So Daisy, where did your love for singing first start?

Daisy: When I was about 10, but I properly started singing and writing when I was 18. That's when I started taking it seriously

Sapphy: What inspired you to start singing?

Daisy: It is something that made me feel good quite therapeutic. It is a form of expression for me. Artists like The Fugees definitely inspired me as a child

MQK TV: The Fugees! I love them. Especially Lauryn Hill

Daisy: Me too! She's one of my faves

MQK TV: Oh yeah. My favourite line is; "I can do what you can do, easy." And "I play my enemies like a game of chess, no stress"

Sapphy: When lyric writing, what motivates you?

Daisy: Usually love, especially heartbreak. I mainly write about the emotions we feel and the insecurities I think people can relate too

MQK TV: What musical genre do you feel best singing in?

Daisy: I experiment with most genres. If it's a good song, it is a good song. It doesn't matter about the genre

MQK TV: You remind me of Ella Eyre. Have you ever heard of her?

Daisy: Yes she's great!

Sapphy: What advice would you give to those wanting to sing and write lyrics?

Daisy: I'd say write honestly and spend time practicing and try to do it daily. Try working with a range of musicians to see what kind of style suits you best

MQK TV: There is a misconception that people have to go to a music school to learn how to sing. Do you think singing is a natural ability or do people have to learn?

Daisy: I think people are born with a natural gift - a rawness. I think everyone can improve their vocals by training and practice

Sapphy: What would you say to those with no confidence to sing?

Daisy: Feel the fear and do it anyway. It's a tough one. I struggle with nerves on stage. Always have, but the more you do it the more confidence you are able to develop. In some ways little steps. Try singing in front of a family member or a friend then maybe an open mic. There are music colleges to help you develop

MQK TV: Great tips. So what I really want to know is how did you get the gig at The Venue?

Daisy: I was invited on!

Sapphy: After today will you return to Avakin?
