buddy walk - Sakide Blush dress, ammaci

I’m finally back and able to feel up to blogging hurrah! So on with the show and let’s get the ball rolling with The Buddy Walk event. If you’re not familiar with this event here’s a little snippet from the press release:

“The SL Buddy Walk was created to celebrate the World Down Syndrome Day in Second Life. Many of your favorite SL entertainers and store brands will be taking part to promote and raise money for Down Syndrome awareness. The Buddy Walk® was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.All donations collected from this event are given directly to the NDSS. They will be used for supporting the National Down Syndrome Society’s education, research and advocacy efforts on behalf of the more than 400,000 individuals with Down Syndrome in the United States.”

There are a ton of great designers all supporting this, such as Sakide who’s frock I am wearing above, close up is to show the absolootly stunning necklace which is also on offer by Designs By Sebastian. My skin is another Buddy Walk item, its by Amacci and is called Emma. I chose to wear the pale version which is so very pretty and delicate, but there are darker options available. My hair is by a newwww designer called {Quandry}, this style is Nancy, I really like it. Sweet natural styling. Infact I liked it SO much I tried to find their store to grab a few demos etc..but at the moment it looks like there isnt, fingers crossed for more from them !

Sounds like fun huh? Well, not only will it be FUN…there are goodies up for grabs IF you complete the tasks. Also, if you’re one of the first three people to complete the event..theres seriously a HUGE win for you. Anywayyyyy one of my fav stores is in it Trompe Loeil, and if you buy your passport from there you get a gifty hurrrah! I’m plonked on said gift above, its pretty snazzy , has some neato poses in it for girls & guys, plusss some rather fabuloso texture changing on the fabric…ohmailawd its only THREE prims *faint*. If you buy your passport before the event begins it will only set you back 300L….afterwards I believe its going to be 400L…anywayyyyy Im rambling on and I expect you just want the details so you can get on with it !

Jane has March Mesh Madness

The March Mesh Madness event begins today (1st March), it’s going to be FUN! Ooodles of designers showing their meshy goodness, exclusives & gifties. Jane will be there hurrrah! I’ve got a sneaky peaky preview to show you of the Jane new releases, there’s a stash of new items and I’ve picked out my fav’s. (thank you Janie xx) First outta the traps..is this darling little frock called “sweetie”, and it really is sweet..its so happy & joyful..I felt like twirlingggg around…homely fabric…simple style,brimming over with spring hope…it just has such “movement” about it…

Chevron’s are the order of the day with “janelle”, I was attracted to this sunny copper tone…beautifully shaped cuffs with a gentle gather around the wrists..flared A line style skirt..sooo many ways you could wear this…as the weather gets warmer..an the daffodils poke their heads up..Id plump for a pair of chunky wedge sandals…would look equally as good with  a pair of knee-high boots…

“trellis” is one of the oversized tee’s to arrive..check out that pattern ! Its gorrrjuss…I wore it over some lace leggings..but was tempted to slide into some dark wash jeans…thinking forward to summer..great with flip flops for a walk along the beach ! This shape of tee is so very easy to wear…and it looks fluid as it drapes around you…

Something a little more sleek is “tangled”..with its weave of spiralling flowers & vines…toe skimming length…and folded bodice..its just classic greek..although this will work as an evening piece..I wanted to walk barefoot on cool marble…it made me feel all slinkyyyy ! martini anyone?

~le sigh~..last for today…is “shane” an oversized tee…plain fabrics..strokable & smooth..I think these shapes will become one of my spring/summer staples..useful to slide on over leggings..jeans..or as I have above with a pair of Jane piggie tights (you HAVE to have some piggies in your life!) As we delve into the balmy summer days..bare legged..sandals…just perfect..

All the items come in a range of sizes..I found for me, medium worked best, or large if I wanted to wear fuller breasts..(only in SL folks!) Theres a lot more to the collection..so go take a peek !

Event: March Mesh Madness (this is where the new stuff is from 1st March!)

The Home & Garden Expo 2011

One of the biggest events of the year has kicked off, the  fourth Homes & Garden Expo, and I was giddy was excitement after receiving my press pass to get a sneaky preview before its crazzzzy busy (thank you Cleom Bailey!) There are ten sims of goodies to peruse, yes TEN! It runs until the 22nd of this month so plenty of time to work your way around and see it all. The expo will cover all areas of home and land decor in SL. It gathers together many of SL’s greatest architects, furniture makers, gardeners and landscapers, some well-known and some not so well-known, in a grand display to Second Life shoppers and visitors.

Each Exhibitor will be selling two items which make their debut at the Expo and those sales will go to benefit Relay For Life, along with all proceeds from this year’s, always popular Scavenger Hunt, Auction and Raffle.

 As you can see I found a couple of quiet corners to sit and relax, there are some stunning displays dotted around to enjoy and appreciate.

Lisp had some gorgeous items out, this umbrella set caught my eye, stacked with poses and so unique.

Dont forget to keep an eye out for some beautiful gifts as you walk about, Lisp had this oh-so-pretty day bed that came with two styles of lamps, and a new designer to me “Julia” had a super side table out complete with wine giver as a pressie (Julia also had a house out as a gift but I havent had time to rez it yet booo). Check out the superb details on Julia’s creations, certainly a store I shall investigate later. (thanks Lisp & Julia!)

If you’re an outdoorsy type, there’s also things to interest you..AZ Emporium had a simply fab selection of camping equip, the bed for this tent was amazing, you could close the mozzy nets,unmake & make the bed, plus nortiness in the poses *blush*.

As things hotted up and the official open time went by I flew off to the higher numbered sims before it got crowded and I met up with Sandi Glas of Glas Houses, my first real-life designer in the pixel flesh so to speak ! Sandi was most gracious and rezzed up another lawn chair for me to sit on while we chatted. Sandi has been designing Homes for 2 years and although she wasnt trumpeting the fact shed won awards I spotted it while I was profile snooping her (busted big time huh) Turns out shed won two  at build-off competitions hosted by what was once called the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum, and is now Virtual Museums, Inc.

I had a wander about as Sandi mentioned she had a “beachy” type villa on display and I’m  a sucker for those, you HAVE to go see it, its one of her relay for life items and is totally different from anything Id considered for a beach theme before (think sharp white walls,dark crisp wood,angles & curves). The homes are solidly built,and very “warm” , you know the type of place you walk into and its empty, and immediately in your head you’re arranging your own furniture in it? Main store if you miss her pitch is here: Glas Houses . Lovely to meet you Sandi and thanks!

Andddd finally I found Cleo Designs ! Cleom Bailey is on Sim 4, which is chock-a-block with goodness . I just had to show you this lounger,its pretty fabulous…loadsss of poses and the back of the relciner even changes position as you sit up and down…I LOVE that!

Inside the pretty white house (which is also for sale) I found this piano set, I can’t express how pretty it is, its Cleom’s Relay for Life item, priced very reasonably at 200L you get all that you see in the photo. I was particularly impressed with the music it plays..go try it out ! (and its verrrrrry low prim yay!)

The Hall stand also caught my attention, a real steal at 100L, perfectly executed with great details and a pretty pose,as usual with Cleom’s designs you see it and wanttttt it ! (isn’t the little bag hanging up just toooooo cute??!!) Dont forget to mooch outside..there is a glorious arbor complete with couches,floaty curtains and tables that will make you swoooon. If you miss Cleo Designs at the fair here’s the main store: Cleo Designs (but you wont see the exclusive RFL items there!)

Hope you enjoy the event as much as I am/have, I suggest you do a couple of sims a day, I got a bit OVER excited doing so many in one go. There is so much to see and do, heaps to buy and snaffle up..and if you’re wanting to learn some new skills, Builders Brewery are also holding lessons & classes in all sorts of creating hurrrah! There are also live music sessions, parrrtay! In each sim there are teleporter boards & maps, you really wont get lost, I just flew around all ten sims and landed in the middle where the info boards were, brilliantly organised and easy to navigate, bigggg thanks to the organisers *squidge*
