6th Annual Home & Garden Expo for Relay For Life

One of the events in SL I look forward to with much eagerness and anticipation each year is the Home & Garden Expo. This years event is well underway, having began last Friday, and will continue thru this Sunday, June 2. There is so much to see and do at the Expo, it’d be best to head on over ASAP and check it out. I know that’s what I’ll be doing as soon as I log in after having had to be away with RL since last week!

You do not have to be a land or home owner to enjoy the Home & Garden Expo. You can find classes to take to get you started in building, breedable vendors to help you find a pet to share love with and of course, you can wander and dream of living in these beautiful homes in RL! There is even a hunt if you are a hunt lover like me! There is sure to be something for everyone there.

A Spring Afternoon

Two Moon Gardens is a shop that is new to me, and am sure I’ll be visiting their mainstore soon after seeing their beautiful set up at Expo. Their offering for RFL is this beautiful Cherry Blossom Garden scene. It is modable too, which is a plus for me, as I can slide bits around to fit my land space just right. Organica, a long time favorite of mine, has some gorgeous tulips specially colored in purple and orange for RFL, you wont want to miss these either. I’ve scattered a few around the bench that comes with this set from Two Moon, which incidently, comes well stocked with couples and singles poses.

I’ve included a map which should help you get around, as well as some important links. Prepare for lag, always a good idea for any event, it will make your experience much more enjoyable. Allow plenty of time, and do not delay, as you just may find yourself spending a lot more time then you anticipated at the Expo. Have fun, enjoy the scenery, get some new things, and help a great cause, you can’t go wrong! I am sure I will be spending the bulk of my SL time there over the last days, I do hope to see you there!

Skin Fair 2013: On the Right Paige, with Rockberry

The time is running out quickly for Skin Fair 2013 and you know you do not want to miss it, so head on over there as soon as you can. There are two sims full of stores with all sorts of skin yumminess, there is sure to be something you’ll love.

Catty - Rockberry 2G

One of the skins I discovered at Skin Fair, and love bunches is the newest Rockberry, Paige. Shown here is the natural tone (you can choose between four tones), and two of my most favorite make ups, but I couldn’t decide on another to show, so I decided to give you a glimpse of them all. Paige comes in twelve make up options per skin tone. You can choose just one at a very afforable price, or buy the whole pack for your best value, and you surely won’t be disappointed. You also will get tattoo layers for black and brown eyebrows, as well as freckles too. You also get the option of cleavage, or not, on the skin itself which is always nice as you wont be losing important things at the wrong time!

Catty - Rockberry 1L

Also shown here, are some new eyes from Mayfly which I love. They are mesh and come with assorted white options, and you can size them too to fit most any AV. Pose Fair 2013 starts too this weekend, and here I give you a teaser of some fun new poses from HelaMiyo. Pose Fair runs for about two weeks so you’ve plenty of time to get there after you shop skin fair, but I’ve given the link to HelaMiyo here as I know you’ll want to grab these poses up quick too, and it has just opened.

Again, here are the links you’ll need for Skin Fair, so hurry on over.

Skin Fair 2013: Falling in Love With all of Elyse

Skin Fair 2013 is here!!!!! Well, I’m slow, and I had some PC issues, which..I hope is resolved now, so I’m a bit late, Skin Fair 2013 actually began last week, but the good news is it runs thru March so you still have plenty of time to get over there and get shopping!!!!

Catty Tuli1 - Elyse

Tuli has once again done what she does and created a new, lovely skin which I know will be among my favorites in the future. One word of warning tho..if you are not already a Tuli fan, you will be after trying this skin! Elyse has so many options, you’ll spend weeks wearing different ones. You have a choice of three tones: Pearl, Power and Petal (shown here is Petal), tho I love them all. Each tone comes in 4 eyebrow options (Brown, Blond, Black and Red) and if that isn’t enough, each comes with the option of dimples!! Cleavage you ask? You get two options of cleavage with each for getting your look just right with your outfits and all that. Now, about the all important make up options…you do the math, I’ll give the facts here, I’ve no idea how many variations you end up with. Each tone is available in two make up packs…Sultry and Elementary. Each of these comes in five eye make up options (one for each brow color, and each with, or without, dimples). Tuli did not forget the lips, oh no she did not! With each pack you get thirty lip options! Yes, I said 30! There are three lip tones: Intense, Deviant and Sheer, each with five colors, and each of those comes in Gloss, or No Gloss option.

Catty Tuli2 - Elyse

Whew..that was exhausting! How many variations of Elyse did you come up with? Not enough for you in there? More good news! Tuli has Lolas Tangos Appliers available too for all the tones! as well as many more skins available at Skin Fair!! Get on over now and check them out, try the demos, fall in love with Elyse and sooo much more worth falling in love with at Skin Fair 2013! Stay tuned for more glimpses into what you can find this year. Happy skin shopping!

Catty- LOTD Elyse

Oh, and even more good news – as we are already a week into Skin Fair, the lag should now be manageable! However, you should still dress down appropriately, as always, in attending any event where there is much shopping to do. Remember, prioritize! Priority One is seeing all that is there to see, and getting around it all to see it, AND buying all there that you want! You can dress up after shopping, in all the new skins you’ve bought!

A Little Global Domination, A Little Exile

You’ve just three days left for Global Domination!!! This very entertaining event ends on Thursday, and I highly recommend it if you enjoy hunt and puzzles. Do not get me wrong tho, this is NOT a hunt, tho some hunting is involved. It took me about three days of off-and-on back-and-forth grid-hopping and thinking and making all kinds of notes to figure it out, along with a little eavesdropping of the Hint Group. It’s the most fun I’ve had doing a hunt/grid hopping type thing in ages, and Kudos to the organizers of this event, and I hope they do more! I’m showing here just three of the many wonderful prizes (for more peeks, see Global Domination ).

Global Domination in Exile

I love the Global Domination Prize gown from Indrya Originals, it comes in two color options, with two sets of coordinating jewelry, also shown here. I’m sure I’ll be wearing this thru spring and into summer, and even these late dreary winter days when spring fever is beginning to take root. Pilot offers up for a prize this very versatile stage, complete with a variety of poses to use, however, I chose to use the poses from aDORKable, also a Global Domination prize for completing the game. I love this Exile hair, Loveshack, available at My Attic @ The Deck thru this week also, and I even opted to wear a different color for a change. I’m still loving this Zoe skin too, from Tuli, make sure grab it also while you’re over at My Attic @ The Deck before its gone. You’ve much to do to keep you busy for the rest of this month, so don’t delay or you’ll be sorry you missed out on all the fun and bargains!!

My Attic : Tuli and the Loveshack

If you haven’t heard the news by now, you do need to get out shopping! I suggest you start today at The Deck’s latest round of My Attic, a great sale event that occurs every couple of months with offerings from several of the most talented designers on the grid. When you go for this round, the first thing to look for is this gorgeous new Tuli skin!! Yes, you heard me right, Tuli is back!! She’s been back awhile now, and I’ll be showing you some of her other newness soon, but for today, I just had to show you Zoe, an old favorite of mine, and I was so happy that not only was Tuli back, but she’s bringing back some faves as well as introducing us to new delights!

Catty Pop

At this round of My Attic, the theme is Pop Music, and you’ll find many goodies all priced at 95L, how good is that? One must have is this great new updo from Exile, appropriately named “Loveshack”. There are many other things all of us shoppers and pop music lovers need there, from clothing to photosets to poses, so hurry on over and see what goodies you can find. I’ll be going back for sure!

New Releases & Hunts: Love Me Tender

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with all the pinks and reds everywhere, I felt inspired to do some festive photos. I started with a dress and leggings set from PurpleMoon, made for the Cupids Arrow hunt and a fun outfit for a casual day hanging out with my man. I’ll let you in on a little secret too, there is Cherry Hunt happening over there at PurpleMoon, don’t miss it, you’ll find lots of goodies.

LoveMeTender2

I added the new Maxi Gossamer Khaleesi set to it, which comes in a variety of color combinations, so you’ll be sure to find one that works for your outfit of the day too, get it now while its on sale at Collabor88. I just can’t keep up with all Maxi Gossamer’s releases lately, every one is a must have that finds its way to my inventory! I also grabbed my Go-To Nails from Bamboo, each set comes in 5 colors/patterns, I’ve several and love them all, I chose a silvery white for this look to brighten things up a bit.

LoveMeTender1

New for me here too, are the Doro shoes from Redgrave which come with a 12 colors all in one Hud (including two metal colors), that offers countless options for your outfit matching. I’m sure I’ll be wearing these lots with various outfits. They are a great value for the quality, I know I’ll be getting at least a couple more styles there soon.

Love Me Tender

Once I was dressed for the day, the man of my life swept me off to a beautiful sim for some dancing at a lovely waterfall he found. He is so sweet, knowing I love waterfalls, he has made it his mission to take me dancing at every waterfall on the grid! Now, time to go work on the next look and post! See you at a waterfall or shopping soon, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Catty Does a Post!!!!

Just when you thought it was safe…..

Summer is over, tho it really doesn’t feel like that is possible. My MiniMe has gone back to school, and it’s time to start trying to get things done again at home, and in SL. The summers brought a lot of surprises, from almost losing my only brother, to a week spent at Sturgis during Rally (and another at Lake Superior) and even some new family horses, all of which reminded me just how important it is we make the best of each day we have, and to reach out for that which we love, and to not be so afraid to speak our feelings.

Hatpinned

Vintage Fair has begun while I wasn’t looking, and Reghan of Hatpins has created a pair of earrings I’ve not wanted to take off since she sent them to me. They are so well constructed, perfectly detailed and oh-so-touchable, as always with Hatpins, and go with a multitude of different looks and era styles. Vintage Fair ends soon so if you haven’t been over there, it is a must see, many things there a girl, or guy, with a fashion interest, must have.

Catified

When I initially decided I just had to blog these earrings since I love them so much, I didn’t know what to choose to wear with them as the possibilities are endless, and I just haven’t been out much this summer getting new things. So, I started out naked, when in doubt, skin always works!! But before the camera pulled away from me for a full shot, I’d found myself in a yummy, glittery evening out dress from Kyoot. I love a short little black dress, or red, or pretty much any other color…but I do need to step out of my own box a bit and find more dressy things, any suggestions where I should shop? It’s time for some new adventures and new passions in the worlds I love. See you soon! XOXO

The Hair Fair Taxi – At Your Service!!! Grab a Friend and Shop!!

My absolute favorite event of the year has begun! Hair Fair 2012 is here!!!!! The year went by way too fast, and offered a few RL shake ups that helped to remind me that family is always first, so I’m not able to participate, this year, as a designer….but that hasn’t stopped me from loving Hair Fair, nor from getting all excited about it!

HF Taxi Service

First thing I noticed when I finally got to visit Hair Fair a few days after it had begun…was this Ride a Prim “Taxi” thing! Even before I noticed the hair shops and layout, I saw this. Is it new this year? I think so, at least, it’s new to me, but I admit, I’m not always the most observant owl in the forest. I’d gone over to Hair Fair with partner in shopping and blogging, Jeni..so , seeing that you could tempRez a prim for one, two, or four, I immediately rezzed a prim for two and insisted she hop on the taxi too! I remember at my very first Hair Fair, back in 2007…being one of the lucky first to get in, it was so laggy, and there were prims rezzed which we could sit on and taxi ourselves around much easier then trying to walk. While I haven’t found this years Hair Fair to be laggy, I still think this is a great way to shop with friends! More events should do this, I love it!.

HF2012-Destination

Hair Fair 2012 is on now thru Sunday, July 29, so don’t delay if you haven’t already been there. Go soon, get your demos from the Demo Group if you want to shop at home, then go over and find yourself lots and lots of new hair! Each participating designer has three to five styles, each with a portion of the sale going to Wigs For Kids, Hair Fair’s charity of choice. Grab your friends, appoint one the taxi driver, and go buy new hair now!!!!!

Home & Garden Expo 2012 – Run, Don’t Walk!

It’s one of my favorite times of year in SL, a time when (just like I do in RL) I get so excited by all the pretty new houses and gardens and just wish I could move in to all of them. It’s Home & Garden Expo time! Sadly, this event is much much too short, for as big as it is, and for as much as there is to see and do, there is just never enough time. Tomorrow, the 28th, will be the last day for this years Expo, so drop what you are doing now, and run, don’t walk, there. I’d originally planned to do several postings, with the theme of “moving in” to builds so compelling I’d no choice but to just…move in. As usual, my hopes were much larger and more extravagant then I could pull off, and stuff happened, and I missed a few days, and then I managed to spend a day or two taking many many pics for putting into some posts. RL plans were to visit family for an extended holiday week, so I tuned up the ol laptop so I could blog while away, saved my pics to a jump drive, and we hit the highway for the big city. I guess its time I get with the times, as I should have saved the pics to a cloud or some such, as it turns out, the drive was corrupt, and I am miles away from my PC, and…my pics of the lovely Expo!!! I apologize to all the builders and designers at Expo, for I am unable to show any pics of their amazing and captivating creations this year. Everyone must take my word for it, and trust that it is worth the time, and the inevitable lag, to go spend some time (and Lindens) at this years Expo. I also suggest you peek back at earlier postings on this blog, Jeni’s got some beautiful pics of Expo to give you some temptation and encouragement.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard that Home & Garden Expo benefits RFL, and that many of the best designers have special items out for their donation items, but I’ll tell you again. I don’t know how many there are for sure, but there are 14 sims full of them. At this late date, I’d suggest you quickly check the Sim Listing page and pick your favorites and head on over. Turn your graphic settings down low, de-script yourself, dress comfortably, grab your beverage of choice and get power shopping now. Expo ends tomorrow, so seriously, Run! Don’t Walk! Run! Immediately! I’ll be back home in a few days, so keep an eye on my flickr and I’ll get a few of my favorite pics posted there.

Some of the places Catty moved into during Expo week, in no particular order:
Dutchies, Rustica, Insight Designs, L2 Studio, What Next, Sway’s, Windowshopping with Neva Crystall, New Trails, Organica, HomeKraft, Tether’s End, Funky Junk, Thistle, Abiss, Weather! or Not?, Trompe Loleil, Barnesworth Anubis, Hanaya, Interior Addiction, Cheeky Pea, Second Spaces, Mudhoney, Clutter, reBourne, Alchemy Immortalis, True North, Leezu, KittyCats and sooooo many more that I didn’t get time to look at. Make notes, as I did, and make sure to visit the main stores after the Expo.

Have a great holiday if you’re in the US, and a great day if you’re not, and see you at these shops, or others, soon! Say hi if you see me out and about, you just might find yourself in a future blog post!!

Keeping Calm & Catching Up

May is rushing past and I’ve hardly had a time to keep up. Finally I got a chance to delve into some SL and see what I’ve almost missed. First thing I did to catch up was take a peek at the Keep Calm & Keep Shopping event, going on now thru May 28,2012. Participating designers have created exclusive items for this event, that will not be available later, so you will not want to miss any! See the Keep Calm & Keep Shopping blog for full list of stores and other info.

Catching Up & Keeping Calm 1

Dirty Little Secret has something fun for KCKS, a Dressmaker’s Studio. You can see a peek of it here, it’s filled with furniture and decor and makes a great hang out for all designer and fashiony types, and its plenty roomy for creating in. Clutter, one of my fave stores, has a yummy chair out, I managed to find a special spot for it in the Studio. Coloreta’s is a store new to me, and this top they’ve made includes a very cool skirt but I opted to wear it with my favorite white jeans for a fun summer look.

Catching Up & Keeping Calm 2

I also got a chance to check out some new tatts from Essential Soul, and I’m loving this Koi Pond..I usually don’t go for colorful but I cannot seem to take it off. A few of my favorite groups have been sending gifts of late too, Belleza being one, with the nummilicious Lily V2 which has me thinking I need more of this skin for sure. Pixel Mode has gifted it’s subscribers with a fun pair of blue wedgies, perfect for summer wear.
