Home & Garden Expo 2014

2014 Home and Garden Expo

Announcing the 7th Annual Home and Garden Expo

Home and Garden Expo 2014, benefitting RFL of SL, opens on September 16, and runs through the 28th. Spread over nine sims, HGE features the finest in Second Life Home and Garden design product and creator tools. Over 85 participating creators have joined HGE, one of the first mega-events of the 2015 Relay For Life fundraising drive in Second Life.

Relay For Life of Second Life is in its tenth season, as Second Life residents across the grid band together to raise funds for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. The funds raised go to finance cancer research. During the 2014 season, RFL of SL broke the $415,000.00 USD mark for total funds raised.

This year’s HGE is supported by nine Platinum Sponsors and eight Gold Sponsors. This year’s event also includes, for the first time, a comprehensive shopping guide listing all donation items, new releases, hunt, raffle and gatcha items. New rules and a new layout for HGE reduces lag and provides ample display space for each of the participants’ products.

New Hair From Milana

It’s been a while since Milana released new hair, so the moment I got the message I was clicking my tp button. 3 new hairstyles, 1 of which has 2 options. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this means Asuka has more time to continue making new hairstyles!

My Second Life has been incredibly busy of late with Skin Fair and various other events, that I haven’t had time to dress let alone put together looks that I would want to share. Normally I like to shoot my looks on location but for this look I was drawing a blank and so decided to take inspiration from the many bloggers who shoot on plain backgrounds and find cute/cool ways to list their credits. Lemme know what you all think of this style! I kinda like its simplicity in the fact it’s all about the look. Anyways, be sure to hit skin fair when you get the chance, incredible skins to be found!

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again! Yes, Hair Fair 2013 starts tomorrow! Hair Fair is an event that raises money for the charity Wigs for Kids. Every hair at the event, has a minimum of 15% going to Wigs for kids. On the last day of Hair Fair is Bandana Day, where we remove our hair to show we care, in support of those that have lost hair, or suffer from hair loss. Every year people submit their bandanas they have made using the kits that were provided and are sold for 50L each (trans) on all 4 sims for the duration of the event. More information can be found on the official Hair Fair site.

I have included a sample, a teaser if you will, of a small selection of hairs that are available at Hair Fair this year.

The Liaison Collaborative-The Garden

The Garden

The Garden opens tomorrow, the 15th, with many beautiful items to create the perfect English garden setting. One thing I’m loving about The Liaison Collaborative is the fact that every other month the focus is on home and garden creators. I have always been a huge fan of home and garden items, but it’s only been the past year since the introduction of mesh, that it (home and garden designs) have really taken off, and become sought after. Now you are able to live on your 512 plot and have it impeccably decorated without compromising quality for low prim counts. Happy decorating!

Everything featured in this post comes from The Garden.

Ikon’s Ardent Eyes

Ikon Eyes 1

Ikon Eyes-Ardent

I am a diehard Insufferable Dastard eye fan. It’s the only eye brand I wear pretty much 99% of the time, however with Ikon’s new Ardent eyes release I just might be a convert. Introduced at The Liason Collaborative Boutique, I kept seeing people raving about them on plurk so had to try them out for myself. The colors are vibrant, clear, and have a good deal of realism to them which I love in an eye. My only tiny tiny tiny request, is that there be an XXS offered. While there are 5 sizes available… I find the XS still slightly too large of an iris for me, but that doesn’t detract from the beauty whatsoever of these eyes. Try them out for yourself before the boutique closes!

What I’m wearing:

*MM* Yummy Charm Necklace
Felix Bangle – lavender
HM – Bilson – L – Lavender
MG – Eyelashes – Party – Swallow Wings
MIASNOW Accessory – RING BOP ~AQUAMARINE (L
Slink Mesh Hand Mouse

The Many Faces of Voshie 1

I am a chameleon in SL, which I take much joy in, as there are so many styles that I love irl, but can’t or wouldn’t ever wear. So begins a mini-series of the many different styles you most likely will see me in! The first 2 that I am doing today were a lot of fun (and work!) putting together. I can spend literally hours perfecting a look and this is the result! 99% of the time I carry my red hair, green eyes, and freckles into every look I style.

First up is what most would say is a ‘traditional’ vampire look. I am always a vampire, but I’m not in for stereotypes, so you won’t see me flashing my fangs often and dressing all goth, but I do on the odd occasion like to remind everyone my true nature and to revel in my darker side. I like to call this my Bad Ass Vamp look.

Tryp 1-Vamp

My next look is my urban style. I tend to stick to grays, blacks and whites….I often have to force myself to add color to my wardrobe. Thus the PINK *shock ack gasp* hoodie I paired for this look. I am DEATHLY afraid of needles (due to having hidden veins, any time blood is drawn I end up looking like a voodoo doll with holes from being stuck all over me)…so I am unable to express my love for piercings and tats in RL, but thanks to SL, I’m able to layer them on!

tryp 2- urban

I hope you like these looks as much as I had fun putting them together! ❤

FAIR

A new monthly event will be opening at 4pm SLT today from the wonderful event guru, Keira Seerose. Titled FAIR, designers will be on a rotational basis with each featured designer for the month representing an certain hour of the day. This opening month’s line-up shows the promise of what this monthly event will hold, and I know that I for one will be looking forward to it each month!
