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: 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!

Blink and Summers Over

Summer has gone so fast, I was caught by surprise when the weather guy announced the official end to summer. In an attempt to jump start my blogging, I thought I’d start with some favorite purchases, from the summer, that make great looks for autumn too. Seems like only a few days ago I purchased this yummy shirt from League, and I can’t seem to take off this Truth hair, purchased at a past Colabor88. With Autumn here so soon, that of course means there is more shopping to do, and that means more blogging! See you again soon!!

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.

Culture Shock 2011 – Sneaking a Peek with Miamai

Event Organizer Keira Seerose has been at it again, and this time I suspect she’s outdone herself.  Kiera puts together some fun shopping events, which also raise awareness, and give back to RL, of various RL issues.  Her latest project, Culture Shock 2011 kicks off May 1, and will run thru May 22, 2011. Approximently 174 designers will be releasing new items, with a portion of their sales going to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

CS2011 - Miamai Joja

Miamai will be one of the participating designers, and will be releasing a few new items.  One, is the Jojo top, which I love for its rich colors and flirtiness.  I chose to wear it with my fave pants from Zaara for a dressy casual look, but it would be great with a skirt, jeans, or shorts too.  Next, I wear the Keyla Mini Dress, also being released by Miamai at Culture Shock.  It’s bright and colorful,  perfect for those upcoming warm summer nights.

CS2011 - Miamai Keyla

Culture Shock starts Sunday, May 1, so get started now cleaning your inventory, scheduling some time on your calander, purchasing Lindens, or whatever else you need to do to go to this great and worthy event. It’s one you will not want to miss, I promise.
