The Home & Garden Expo 2014

I have all to do to catch my breath after my home decorating extravaganza of the past few days! After spending endless hours at the 2014 Home & Garden Expo, I parked my butt in these new Wingback Chairs by Apple Fall and decorated my new house from Culprit until I couldn’t keep my eyes open.

Granted, it’s taken me four days, but I just love the open feel of this villa (minus a few minor tweaks of my own here and there.) The rooms are huge and plentiful, the arches beautiful, the textures crisp and I love that the villa itself could be perfectly suited in a country setting, atop Mediterranean cliffs or in a rich vineyard in Tuscany. The options are endless!

If you love home and decor in Second Life, the Home and Garden Expo is undoubtedly one of the biggest events to catch over 90 of your favorite designers across nine sims. It’s also a great way to donate to such a wonderful charity as Relay for Life in Second Life.

Do visit the website too, especially if you are looking for direct landmarks!

The Home and Garden Expo runs from September 16-28.

Bienvenidos a Miami

Party in the city where the heat is on.
All night on the beach til the break of dawn.
Welcome to Miami…

So of course I was jamming to some old school Will Smith while snapping my shots for this post. I mean, with a theme like ‘Miami Electric’ for the September Round of Collabor88, I am sure I’m not the only one. The fact that I also happen to live in the Sunshine State makes me even more exuberant to splurge on these bright colors and prints. Emery has one of my favorite ensembles this round, with a thin, light-weight tank top and tropical inspired pants. I was even able to work in my favorite turquoise with this lovely leafy pendant by Maxi Gossamer.

A lot of new hair releases have been hitting the grid this week, as well. Truth Hawks has two new releases and Posy, a full, wavy and definitely summery ponytail is among one of my new favorites. She’ll pair well with just about anything and is definitely fatpack worthy, so don’t miss out!

Mayfair

Apple Fall has this amazing ‘Mayfair’ set out for the current round of the Arcade. Like his last ‘Paris’ set, I am loving the soft, vintage feel of the pieces that go beautifully with the oh-so coveted RARE Skybox. God only knows I had to play away my firstborn just to get it. But, it is so worth it! The Mayfair Skybox has three rooms off the main hallway- bathroom, bedroom and general living space. The textures are a little worn, a little vintage and super chic.

I finished furnishing my new bedroom with some more amazing pieces from the Arcade, including items from Second Spaces, Tres Blah and Pixel Mode. Really, if you haven’t managed to get in yet- keep trying! You can also cam-shop from the nearby Gatcha Galley sim as well!

I am also decked out new hair from Exile (for the Arcade!) and this new lazy Sunday inspired panty and tank set from Valentina E. Couture for the September round of fameshed. I thought it was a perfect match to lounge around the Mayfair suite. I love that it even comes with a robe that opens and closes with a simple chat command. Mesh is getting better and better every day.

My Outfit:

Glam Affair – Romy (america)
Loudmouth – Alli Mesh Lips
Valentina E. Couture – Sunday Undies & Robe Set (mesh) (lilac) NEW RELEASE @ faMESHed

The Arcade – September 2014

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s so hard to believe that September is here and that fall is pretty much around the corner. Though the weather hasn’t started cooling off yet, it’s safe to say that fall is definitely among us, what with all the buzzing about the September (fall) round of the Arcade. With the big birthday round and the Arcade turning two this month, the designers that have been invited to participate have really knocked our socks off with some great new releases.

Though there weren’t as many apparel related items as I would have liked to see, I am nevertheless thrilled by the items up for grabs. One of my favorites this round, is the La Petite Joie Cafe Collection from 8f8. The build of the cafe itself is stunning. Warm, rich wood, amazing shadows and crisp textures. I especially love the skylight and how all of the windows can change between two version with just a click.

I spent two days decorating in and around my new cafe with some more of my favorite Arcade pieces. Well, as many as I could fit into one setting, that is. I even managed to squeeze in a few non-Arcade items as well, like this new release long modern sideboard from Molichino. With this being Aurelia’s first foray into furnishings, I must say I am suitably impressed by it and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
