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!

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!

An August Afternoon

August Afternoon

It’s been a busy busy rl summer, and now the visitors have gone, the travel is done and soon school starts and I’ll have more time for SL’ing and blogging and creating and such. I decided it was time to start getting things back to “normal”, but wasn’t sure where to start today when I logged in, so many hunts going on and events, and I’m so behind on everything. I decided to do a bit of the Ocio Xtreme Hunt, and I love the shirt Cynful has out for it, so I paired that with a fave pair of jeans from Fri.day and a fun new hair from Shag that I don’t think I’ll be taking off any too soon.
