Do you realize how many awesome events are STILL going on? We’ve had so many so far, it’s really easy to lose track. But trust me – there are still LOTS of events that you need to check out.

The pic above is made up of pretty much all items that are currently available at special events, or were available at special events very recently. The lesson here? GO TO ALL THE EVENTS.

I love this bed from Isla Gealach and Cheeky Pea – part of the Abbotsford Bedroom set currently available at The Garden – and those chairs!!! Those are the Deconstructed Armchairs, also from Cheeky Pea, available right now at The Home Show. There’s a whole deconstructed set that is amazing and you must check it out. You.

Home Expo Goodness – part 7


OMG, I still have two more sims to cover!! I’m hoping to have another post for you later this afternoon, and then probably one tonight. Remember, Home Expo ends this Sunday, so make sure you get over there soon and give yourself enough time to cover all ten sims!!

POST by Van Auster: POST has been on my radar for a while, and I am exceptionally tardy in blogging them. Van has gorgeous prefabs, so well textured and detailed, and so original. POST is not the place for a standard ranch or Cape Cod prefab – it’s the place you go when you want something different and creative, and you insist on excellent quality. Some of my favorites from POST’s display at Expo:

That settee is stunning AND is texture changeable! It’s also one of Van’s RFL items – I grabbed one!!

POST at Home Expo [SLurl]

Artilleri Home, by Antonia Marat, has some oh-so-cute and nostalgic trailers at Expo this year. I love these!

Winter Thorn and {what next} are always one of my favorites. Winter is so consistent with her designs – they’re always beautifully textured, well thought out, and packed with cute extras.

{what next} at Home Expo [SLurl]

Cheeky Pea is another favorite. Designer Isla Gealach always impresses me with her work; she’s another designer who produces great shapes and textures and really focuses on the fun details.

I love those perfume bottles!! ♥

{what next} at Culture Shock


The first annual Culture Shock event is in progress until May 22nd, with a % of the proceeds going to benefit Doctors Without Borders. Read more about it at the Chic Management site.

{what next} designer Winter Thorn was kind enough to send me her new Norwegian Wood Living Room set, available now at Culture Shock. This is such a cute room – you can feel the cultural influence in the color scheme and the blonde wood accents.

I love that this set comes with wearable guitars, and that the couch is animated for guitar playing! This is one of the best guitar animations I’ve seen, very smooth and natural…and I kinda just wanted to sit and strum all day.

As always, Winter did a lovely job with her textures and her details. I really like the art-on-a-ledge behind the sofa, and the guitar case bookshelf is just precious! The guitar lamp is adorable, too.

Stop by Culture Shock to check out the Norwegian Wood Living Room!

Plurk rules my life.


Happy Sunday, dear readers! I’ve got some cool stuff for you tonight – like I ever have anything that’s non-cool, but you know what I mean.

First, The Loft has released a gorgeous (of course) new set, the Adwin Living Room. Words are not needed – the pictures tell you all you need to know!

loft allGo to The Loft!


Now, as mentioned in the title – Plurk rules my life. Since I joined Plurk in February, I’ve met tons of SL folks I would probably not ever have met otherwise…and I get to hear about more finds and exciting stuff than I think I ever have by reading blogs. What that means, then, is that I’m totally gonna steal from my Plurk pals and blog some of the places that they’ve plurked. It’s all in the spirit of sharing and giving and stuff. 😉 So here are some pretty awesome places I heard about through Plurk…

Jordan Giant: okay, Jordan is a person, not a place. She has some of the most precious little skyboxes ever – they’re available on XStreet, and you can visit them in-world – just check Jordan’s profile Picks and she has them tabbed there. First, the snow.white skybox | loft – the furniture is not included, and isn’t made by Jordan, but she’s done an amazing job of staging so that you can see the potential here!

snow white allmy secret.place/attic skybox – such a cozy spot! The window includes texture changes, too, so you can select different views.

attic all

drift.wood skybox – I LOVE the wood texture on this one. The hanging lightbulbs are included, and are so cute! They each turn on/off individually, which is just fun. 🙂

driftwood allAgain, check Jordan Giant’s profile in-world to TP to check these out, and buy them at XStreet!


{what next} home store: owned by Winter Thorn, {what next} is a really cute collection of pieces falling into shabby chic, casual contemporary, and modern categories. (Not all at once, but you know what I mean.) Great basic pieces, as well as lots of cute accessories — and the Christmas shop is just now being set up, so be sure to take a look!
