Home and Garden Expo 2014: Random Snapshots of Stuff I Like

Images from Home and Garden Expo 2014

I spent the better part of yesterday checking out the Home and Garden Expo… 9 sims full of homes, decor, and landscaping! 😀 It was a lot of fun seeing the fabulous items being offered by some of the best H&G designers in SL. I first popped in at one of my faves, Studio Skye (sim 4), and had a difficult time making myself leave. Wait until you see the winter display… gorgeous! Since I wasn’t dressed for winter weather, I mostly hung out here in autumn, in this comfy outfit by Coquet (available at the current round of FaMESHed).

I know I’ll be heading back to pick up this cute, little guy from By Dorian (sim 4). I love that it’s a trailer… see the wheels? There’s even a hitch on the back side, presuming you have a SL vehicle big enough to tow it. Perfect for those SL campers-on-the-go who don’t like to rough-it too much. 😉

Who needs to be a petite when you can be dwarfed by these giant container gardens from Heart Garden Centre (sim 2)? They are seriously enormous… I believe they are called, “forest in a pot,” or something like that.

Sim P has several classrooms, theaters, and other areas where classes will be taught during the Expo. There’s even a bookstore (by Black Tulip) where you can buy a class in a box (be sure to pick up the freebie)! If you’re interested in learning about building, scripting, terraforming, and a host of other SL things, be sure to visit the official blog for more information about upcoming classes and programs.

I don’t actually know who this belongs to. It was located between two exhibits… I just thought it was pretty.

I love these adorable Park Slope Townhouses by Thistle Homes (sim 1)!

After a long, busy day, I stopped in at this beautiful cafe by Apple Fall (sim 3). I dropped quite a few Lindens while I was there, and I don’t mean on pastries.

The Home and Garden Expo opens TODAY, September 16th, and runs through September 28th. You won’t want to miss it! 😀

Champagne & Feathers

Blogging Soon

Before I nod off to sleep tonight, I wanted to show you this cute dress. Joey’s Champagne Feathers Dress is the latest group gift from Paisley Daisy. The dress is mesh and comes in 5 standard sizes. I styled it in sort of a flapper look by adding the Pickford Heels by Ingenue and Zelda hair by !lamb. Both are available at this month’s round of Collabor88. My jewelry is Beloved in Gold & Black, a free gift from Virtual Impressions.

‘Night, Fabulouses!

Carmen’s Escape

chopzuey2_001f

Chop Zuey owner Belle Roussel has recently opened a new Chop Zuey Sky Boutique, which not only features gorgeous jewelry, but also stunning, couture clothing. I finally wandered over there a few days ago, and boy was I surprised: this beautiful dress, fascinator hat, AND jewelry were set out as an opening gift for Chop Zuey group members! The Chop Zuey group is 350L to join, but the gifts… THE GIFTS! If you are already a member of the Chop Zuey main store group, you do not have to join another group; just put your tag on and grab your new dress! 😀

And how much do I love this hair? Let’s just say, I think I’m going to be wearing it for a long time!  I’d been seeing a lot of chatter in the feeds about a store called Tram, and since I liked what I was seeing, I decided to take a look for myself. I’m so happy I did because this lovely hair is set out as a free group gift! I’m not usually a short-hair girl, except when I find a style I love, and… LOVE! 😀 I’m also still wearing the new Lulu skin from Glam Affair, which you can pick up in the gacha machines at The Arcade until the end of June.

One last thing: You may already have heard that Glitterati Poses is closing its doors. 😦 Until June 30th, everything will be either 50% off or 100L, whichever is cheaper. Don’t miss this opportunity to pick up some fabulous poses at an amazing price!
