Home & Garden Expo part trois

HGE Culprit 1 USE

More from the Home & Garden Expo ! Today I want to share some items from Culprit with you. I saw this villa on Flickr awhile ago and was super impressed. Its different and makes you want to twist and turn to see it from loads of angles . I spent ages playing with my windlight settings (and crashing because my graphics card hates me). In short if you’re looking for a unique build, or a special home – this is it. It has two levels, the ground floor is open, with arches leading to covered areas. On the bottom floor a beautifully simple pond decorated with Lilly pads is set into the paved floor. Its got soft and gentle watery noises – nothing that will have you reaching for the volume button!

HGE Culprit Villa

Upstairs are two spacious rooms or spaces, its airy and flows nicely, I thought perhaps a bathing area and bed chamber would be a good use of the areas. Everywhere you glance is another detail, another perfectly worked texture. The choice of colour and textiles is pretty outstanding. Even the gates open with a subtle swing, yes – I did play with them, something like a poorly chosen door script would set my teeth on edge – no worries here though !

It was enjoyable just being in this space, as you can see I couldn’t stop snapping away. The light just works so well through the windows and archways I was ever so impressed and a little bit giddy with excitement! Culprit has quite a few new items on show, like this fabbo brass lantern. I cammed inside and was delighted to find that the awesomeness extended actually inside such a tiny space.

HGE Culprit Brown leather seat

Ohhhh just one more thing from Culprit ? You’ve got to check this out – Not only some lovely poses for lounging about, but but but it’s just so pretty. It comes in brown or sleek black leather, my favourite is the brown, it has a really “lived in” look to it, like people have rolled around on it for years. Low low low Li and deliciously stylish – what’s not to love. Thankyou Eku ❤

This months theme for The Challenge designers is “colourful”, I was so excited to see what they came up with ! Sways has this really stylish chair called Boomerang”, gawd I adore it. It’s so different from what I’ve seen around lately and at just 2 Li its perfect for not eating up your prim budget. It’s a good-looking piece made in mesh and materials ready, colour change for the pillows also. It has twelve single animations and seven couples, there is also an adult version ohlala!

Had to share the Hate this items as they are SO much fun ! This is the mine chair, its got four colour change zones, with extra zesty bright colours to choose from. Again just 2 Li, with nine single sit poses included. The rugs – which I used as wall hangings for the photo are just brilliant – KERPOW!!!! (more versions available instore)

The Challenge - NEW!

New to me store Whimey is offering  The shabby chickie vanity set – so low prim it’s almost a crime ! Such detail and pretty colours – the bottles aren’t included they are just something I added. The darling chair has seven sits, really lovely ones. Vanity is 3 Li and the chair only 2 Li, the lamp is by Volstead and I fell in love with its Deco charms right away. The selection of tones is limited to The Challenge btw.

Awash with colour

coldLogic skirty petty candy - top layne candy NEW!

I’m sat here in my real life office, listening to rain storm thundering down on the roof, wishing with all my heart I had the sort of weather that would allow me to be wearing the latest releases from coldLogic. Blah ! I expect too much for an English gal right?! Thank goodness for Second Life’s sun, I can mooch about wearing whatever I desire at any time of day. Here I am wandering a great expanse of beach in one of the new skirts and shirts, the skirt is “petty” and the top is called “layne”. I choose to wear the “candy” colour in the shirt, it’s a really sweet delicate tone. I don’t know if you can notice but I’ve been using the settings that enable materials to be visible in my last few posts, it’s a subtle difference but it does allow the fabric of each piece to shine through. I automatically got all grabby hands when I saw these two pieces – they seem to be timeless and classic, gentle and feminine. Both items will be so very easy to work in with your existing wardrobe.

coldLogic shirt vayne - shorts davar NEW!

On to the new “davar” shorts, you’re in for a treat when you take a peek at the colour range for these babies ! Two tone and pretty juicy. As I helpfully have not shown here (durrr) Essentially one colour at the front, another at the back. Brill fit and sweet turn ups on the cuff. I teamed it up with one of the “vayne” tops. These little shirts are dead easy to wear with almost anyyyything.

coldLogic dell shirt buff - petty skirt nude NEW!

Last up for today is the halter neck charms of “dell” in a gorgeous buff tone, worn with the “petty” skirt in the nude colour. I simply adore the dell top, close-fitting, with stitched in panels at the side. Theres something for everyone in this release, juicy colours right down the line to soft neutrals if you’re a bright colour scardey cat like moi.  Btw my hair in this photo is by tram, its available right now at the Collabor88 event – haven’t bought anything from tram for a while but this stopped me in my tracks and KERCHING! Thanks Janie, Damien & Zyrra ❤

The Challenge – its the wild wild west !

The Challenge

New month, new Challenge, this months theme is “The wild wild West” –  yeeehaw!  I was dead impressed with this build by [hate this], its pretty clever and comes with a HUD that enables you to change the signage, the wood colour and the shade of the plaster . Also included are some decor items such as a ladder, cactus plant,barrels, coffins, even a counter for inside. Very atmospheric ! Its worth noting, that not only do you get the store in mesh materials ready, but for each piece you also get the option in mesh NOT materials ready – now I’m no expert, and why you’d want it not materials ready I don’t know – but CHOICE is good right?! Zan found the horses I’ve got mooching about at United Inshcon, absolutely marvellous and only 1 prim, they also make sounds which you can opt out of if you find them irritating.

The Challenge – plus Megastuff hunt

The Challenge - Sways

More from The Challenge, and Sway’s has his fantastical little build and fencing up for grabs. It’s the Andersen half timbered summer-house. Low on prims and high on style. Such a darling little cabin, perfect for your springtime and Summer gardens, maybe a little hideaway for you and your friends. Inside is really a blank canvas, so gussy it up, go rustic or retro, whatever you fancy. The fencing for it is superb, I’m a bit of an expert on fencing after having scoured SL for some last year.

The Challenge Sway's,Sickly sweet megastuff hunt- SFD group gift dress FREE

Couldn’t resist sitting outside, as it was such a lovely day yesterday. A few woolly friends joined me as I perched on this stool and table set from Sickly Sweet. Quite shabby chic and feminine with a handful of lovely poses in the seat. This is their gift in the mega-stuff hunt, and one I shall be holding onto. Check out the rest of the store while you’re there, definitely one to keep an eye on, as I spotted some unique and desirable pieces I shall be going back to ponder on.

The Challenge hate this -,Cleo Design megastuff hunt 1L

Inside my Andersen house I found it spacious enough to place a couple of pieces that have stolen my heart. The chair (there are two in the box),vase of sakura blossom and the chest of drawers are all from Cleo Design. This is the gift for the Mega-stuff Hunt and quite the find. As is usual with Cleo Design, you’re richly spoilt with poses for both males & females, including some that rez props as above. I just fell in love with the colours of wood on the chest of drawers, so quaint ! I teamed the drawers up with this wooden belling deer wall decor panel from [hatethis], there are two versions, a more natural toned wood and this one that fitted so well with my theme.  (Is it me or does this look really really art deco?)

Layer it or not…

 

coldLogic cuppy sweater eclectica relic pendant necklace NEW!

 

Another part of the latest coldLogic release is the cuppy sweater and marley sweater packs. The interesting thing apart from they are just epically awesome and easy to wear, is that you in fact get three tops for the price of one ! Mhhmmm, thats right, each colour pack has three wearing options. Above I’m wearing the cuppy sweater and I’ve chosen the “short with layer” effect – make sure you use the right alpha layer for each look (unlike I did first time around!) The knit on this is sort of marl, meaning it’s not one colour but a tangle of shades to make up one overall effect, confused? Well go take a peek for yourself !

coldLogic cuppy sweater NEW! eclectica relic pendant necklace NEW!

Same sweater but this time I’m wearing it in the “short no layer” version from the grey/black pack. Great little item thats sooper easy to sling on over jeans or skirts. By the way, my necklace is from Eclectica, it’s a relatively new release (I’ve been waiting for just the right clothing to show it off) called “relic” and this is the pendant. It is unrigged mesh, which means you can still edit it by hand if you prefer, or use the menu system. You get nine colours of the cabochon central stone in the menu. I love that option, means you can match it up with virtually anyyyyything ! This piece is also materials ready, so slam on advanced lighting in your graphics (if you can) and admire its full beauty. There is also another relic set, that has a short necklace and earrings, you can wear both neck pieces together for a super effect.

coldLogic marley sweater eclectica relic pendant necklace NEW!

Last up is the marley top, similar to cuppy but the layered options are patterned and the knit is a weave, a little more casual styling. This is the “long with layer” option, for which you use a different alpha from the pack. (This is the same in the cuppy one) I was so so glad to see the butter tone appear, I adore it, so soft and gentle and perfect for a stroll on the beach with my afternoon cup-of-splosh! Thanks coldLogic team & Tiffy ❤

All the pretty things

Immerse NEW!

Ohh its sunny today and it’s really lifted my spirits ! So, here I am basking in the sunrays at the new surf beach provided by our awesome landlord at Fruit Islands . (If youre looking for land I can totally recommend them) I’m wearing a new dress “Belladonna” from Immerse, who are currently having a whopping 50% off sale yay! The sale runs until the 2nd of Feb, so you’ve got time to dash over and grab up some bargains.

Eclectica NEW! Anna shapes NEW!

My shape is also a  special price, its by Anna Shapes, a favourite shape maker of Zan and I. This one is called “Gisella” and I really like it. You can get this for just 80L at the moment if you visit The Designer Circle event. Notice my stunning jewels? How can you not ! This is a new set from Eclectica called “Artifact”, I find it totally breathtaking to be honest. It’s a really bold design, with nine cabochon stones set in various tones of metal (sold separately). The stones colour can be altered via a simple to use menu system, and as you can see, I’ve chosen this delicate green to compliment my dress perfectly. The set comprises of the neck piece, two cuffs and earings, all made utilising the new materials method. It’s also unrigged, which means you can manually edit the shape and tint if you wish, so handy dandy ! Thanks so much Tiffy ❤
