Home & Garden Expo

Home Expo 2013 Logo

Hola ! Weeeeeeeeeeeeee ! One of my favourite events is starting . The Home & Garden Expo is ready to roll later today. With an amazing eleven sims to wander and shop in, party in and play in ! 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!

Beautifully made, no shape twiddling required the medium fitted me , isn’t it elegant? I teamed it up with my GOS Desire ankle boots (the vamp version yummm) and also…a skin from Diamond Style called “Samantha”…truly gorgeous skin…with subtle makeup and a lovely tone…thank you ladies ❤

Christmas Expo - Diamond Style  Samantha skin  Sax Shepherd Designs  Frills  60s Celluloid Lipstick  Necklace

I also was lucky enough to see a preview from new-to-me store Sax Shepherd Designs, one necklace in particular caught my eye..the ” 60’s Celluloid Lipstick Necklace”, with its cherry red beads and silver stones it felt really festive ! Sax has loadssss of other styles, so go take a peek and see what you find. Close up of the Samantha skin…such a gentle face and lush lips, I added a lipgloss called venom by MOCK cosmetics also…love the effect .

I’ll take the Fifth…Home & Garden Expo !

Yes, it’s the fifth Home & Garden Expo…you must go see! Fourteen sims devoted to Homes & gardens…from pools to houses, furniture to landscaping…and more. This year’s Expo opened on May 19th at 6am SLT, and remains open 24 hours each day until it closes on May 28th at 10pm SLT . Not only is it a big fat chance to have a shopping frenzy…theres many activities on, even a breedable pet show this year! I started my journey at The American Cancer Soc. Sim. Beautiful gardens, a remembrance area where you can sit…I loved the garden of Hope, where I found the above words set into a stone plaque.

 

One thing I noticed this year, is the very distinct lack of the lag monster…easy to navigate around and seconds for even the most intricate of builds to rez, great ! As I flew around my attention was drawn to a heavily wooded area, so I zooomed right on over and found myself in an oasis of calm & tranquility.

This was all part of Silent woods build…totally gorjus…all nooks and crannies to explore..a beautiful wooden bridge that winds around a vast tree and many levels..if youre looking for a quiet spot to reflect or take some pics….this is it.

Barnesworth Anubis…now theres a designer I’ve been aware of for years! My very first home in Second Life was a freebie from this guy..loved it ! Barnes has two items out that donate to the American Cancer Society…this divine cabana…(lowwww prim) and the furniture to complete the look…

as usual…top notch…wont date and you’ll be using it in 2020 prolly ! Thanks Barnes ❤

Find all this and more at the Home & Garden Expo..wander..explore…donate if you can , splurge on a few treats and have fun !
