The Christmas Expo 2013

Christmas Expo Kaerri Elvis the Christmas deer (rideable) House of Avro rideable Rudolph NEW!

Oh…My…Lord. Can I BE any more excited about Christmas?! YES I can ! I was invited to take a mooch around this years Christmas Expo & Breedable Fair. Frankly, I was like a child in a candy shop. Strolling about, mouth open, dribbling over all the goodies and snow and decorations and animals and pets and and and and more! I paid two visits and don’t think I even saw a quarter of the four sims that are being all set up for the grand opening tomorrow. Make sure you’ve got a coupla hours to spare, cause you really really don’t want to miss a thing. SO many stores I have never been too, SO many pretties, head spin time ! For me this is the first Christmas I’ve been able to fully appreciate what creators are doing with mesh. The saving in prims is astonishing and the realism incredible. Above is the free mesh outfit from Botanica, which is right up my street in PINK . You get the boots, the outfit, plus a jaunty santa hat. I’m sitting astride the rideable Rudolph from House of Avro. Heaps of fun cause he drives like a proper vehicle, speed controls,and dust from his hooves, brilliant ! My companion on the left is “Elvis the reindeer” , he is made by Kaerri, purely for decoration but I just adored him.

Christmas Expo House of Avro mesh tree 8Li - [DDD] Wreath 1Li - Kismet Precious gifts wooden boxes NEW!

In support of Relay for Life of Second Life and the American Cancer Society, the 3rd annual Expo will open on Thursday, December 5th, 2013 at 10am slt and will end at 10am slt on Sunday, December 15th! There are donation boxes scattered about if you have a few spare pennies, plus each store, and participant on the breedable sims has a “naughty or nice” box. Touch it and if you’ve been a good person you get a gift! If you’ve been naughty, you get a lump of coal . (I like coal – so there) Above is the prettiest tree I ever did see. It’s just 8 prims and just looks SO real. Stood on a wooden base, with its lights twinkling away and a smattering of gifts, its perfect. On the wall is an item I HAD to buy, it’s from Dysfunctional Designs. The wreath is just 1 Li, the wonderous thing is you can choose heaps of different colour schemes for the baubles, the wreath and the fabric ! I was also rather taken by the precious gift boxes by Kismet. Totally different from anything Id usually go for at Christmas (I’m a glittery sparkly kinda gal) but they really stood out for me. Original, more subtle and so well made. If you’re into a more traditional look, check Kismet out, totally lovely.

Christmas Expo Myrrine decor items NEW!

Another new store for me is Myrrine. I stood and just gawked at all the decorations. Shabby chic yet also sooper stylish. I’ve scattered a few bits n bobs around in my SL home and its brought a real warmth to my space that was lacking before. Natural woods, and simple colour palettes.

Christmas Expo NEW!

These boards kinda lean against a wall, artfully casual huh? Like you almost thought about nailing them up, but never got around too it ! Love it. I really fell in lust with the wall decor panel above, whats not to like, its got PINK in it.

Dont think of this as shopping only, its got a LOT more to offer. There are photo ops, a raffle & auction,a hunt and of course Live music and a chance to have a wriggle with your mates.

You really shouldnt miss it, there’s also a breedables fair contained within it *ohmaiii*, SO much to do, So much to buy !

Home & Garden Expo 2013 !

Lets get this ginormous partay started then huh?! You will find each designer has items on their pitch that are donation pieces. This means a percentage goes to the RFL charity collection. Each Expo exhibitor will be selling special new items for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society so you can shop and help cancer patients and their families in real life too. This year’s Expo will feature eight regions full of home products, two sims just for the breedables fair and one entertainment sim where you can take a break from shopping and party in style. There is going to be a lot to see and do at this year’s Expo!

Home & Garden Expo 2013 whatnext

I’ve cobbled together a little reflection place for myself out of some of the designers items for the Expo this year…you dont have to be an interior designer to make your home gorgeous, the creators do the hard work for you, just buy and place it…voila! If you’re a little more experienced and want a more individual look, shop around, pick pieces that will co-ordinate with each other and create your own special area.

Home & Garden Expo Imaginimals

mustn’t forget that there is also the breedables fair within the Expo, yesyesyes two sims worth of exciting breedables. I saw Imaginimals, which I’ve not seen before, the kittys look sooper cute so I shall definitely be popping over to find out all about them!
