Cheeky Pea’s Kitchen @ The Second Life Home and Garden Expo

This year for the Second Life Home and Garden Expo, Isla Gealach of Cheeky Pea has worked her heart out. Not only did she make the fabulous Collie Home she also made a brand new Kitchen and Bathroom set. In this post I am showing the brand new Hampton Kitchen which is worth checking out as her exhibit at the Expo shines above and beyond expectations.

Now I snagged this bit of info from her Flickr page for those of you into the primmy important bits:

Hampton Kitchen
Stools – 2 prims ea, corner counter – 27 prims
Jars on counter – 15 Prims, Shelf w/accs – 18 prims,
Extractor hood – 4 prims, fridge w/ contents – 24 prims,
broom cupboard – 3 prims, island – 8 prims

Island has 6 single and 3 couples animations
Sink has 3 animations, range 2 single animations, and counter top 3 single anims
all copy.mod.notrans
MESH

As you can see you can have a beautifully done kitchen without sacrificing any important features with a more than reasonable impact on your land in regards to prims.

I am wearing this beautiful dress from Spright that is available at Culture shock. To wear this dress and make the textures rez you must edit something and then select it and go to the texture tab and wait for it to load. Without doing that I could not load the dress but a friend tipped me off to that secret. My poses in this post are from /Geez/.

What’s Next? @ The SL Home and Garden Expo!

First before I tell you that you must go and visit What Next’s display and sponsored sim at the Second Life Home and Garden expo I want to tell you about !Bang’s Birthday Gacha Cupcakes. For just 22L you can get this cute little cupcake that fits in your mouth and help celebrate the store !Bang’s second year anniversary.

So with all of the home decorating that is in the air, I am inspired me to redecorate my living room with this beautiful set from What Next. The Charlotte Living Room set is all mesh. The expo is filled with creative and beautiful sets but this one stood out to me as a favorite.

The animations in the furniture are many and it’s easy to find a nice sit or to curl up and read a good book or maybe even type on your laptop. What really strikes me is the vivid color and how alive this set looks. There is also a chair and footstool set called the Charlotte Chair & A Half Set with some adorable couple poses.

The house in the background is the Collie house which is new from Cheeky Pea found only at the SL Home and Garden Expo. A post is soon to come.

I am also wearing a VIP gift hair from Elikatira in Never. A brand new dress from coldLogic. Lily skin from Belleza and heels from Pixel Mode.

reBourne @ the SL Home and Garden Expo

The Second Life Home and Garden Expo which is a Relay for Life event opens today May 19th at 6am SLT, and remain open 24 hours each day until it closes on May 28th at 10pm SLT.

I was granted early access to look around and I stopped at the reBourne display and fell in love with a beautiful dome house and tried the best I could to capture it’s beauty.


But you see, this house much like all of the homes by reBourne must be seen in person to really experience. It is a sensory delight. The textures are perfect, there are sounds and for me someone who cannot see shadows in Second Life yet I love the shadows that I can see in the house from the sublime texturing.

If you are looking for a beautiful beach home whether on land or in the sky this would be perfect for you. This house is flawless, you must see it at the expo.

There are 14 sims to explore so if you are in the market for a beautiful new home there are plenty to suit anyone’s taste and budget. It’s just a matter of checking it all out and taking in all the beauty that can be found.

Stumbled my bum unto some sales!

You know, designers are making such cute things lately that I can’t keep up. Stumblebum’s Insanity round that began on May 15th has many cute things and I’m featuring the top and short set from e! and the dresser and picture frames from Cheeky Pea. The stuff is amazing and well the colors are very bright and uplifting.

I’m also wearing brand new hair from Elikatira called Indulge and Belleza’s brand new beautiful skin Lily. My feet are from Slinkthe best mesh feet maker on the grid. My poses are from Purple Poses which you can get for super cheap at this round’s Perfect Wardrobe as well as my crazy cool color change nails from Virtual Insanity.

Lily by Belleza

A few days ago this beautiful group gift came from Belleza, and I had been waiting for “Lily” from Belleza for awhile because I really liked the way that she looked on me. So I fully intended on buying the skin when it came out yesterday but yeah, it’s too pretty so I fat packed it. I rarely ever do that but I liked it all so much and for 1200L per skin the fat pat at 6000L for 19 makeups plus additional lipsticks and what not is really a steal! I bought the pale tone.

The makeups are really so pretty and the body is very nice too. I like the shading and the femininity of the body very much. It is a really beautiful skin that you should try on as soon as possible.

I am also wearing hair from Lelutka, and poses from Purple Poses.

The baddest pixels

One bad pixel is releasing a new dress and a pair of pants today, both mesh and both sexy as hell. I had a correct guess for their contest to guess who the designers behind the store were and I got both new releases in a fat pack for being a good guesser, lucky me!

What I love about this dress and thong set is it is very sexy and a little naughty. The dress is short and stretches over your bum in a flattering way and the thong underneath is very very nice. It’s a naughty/nice dress and absolutely worth purchasing for your inventory.

I am also wearing shoes from Celoe. Hair from Wasabi Pills, My poses are the leg poses from Adorkable. Jewelry from Sigma and skin from Glam Affair. Most of the furniture you see in the background is from Lisp and I took these photos in my new home by Laqroki.

Creamy Daydreamy Collabor88

May 8th, Collabor88 began again and the theme for this cycle is Daydream. Several of your favorite designers came together and made some beautiful things for this round. I love this hammock set from Cheeky Pea which is a total steal for the coming summer days. It also comes with a table, books and tea for two and a ton of cute poses.

Speaking of poses, Adorkable made some totally cute poses for this round of Collabor88. I love this dress from Nylon Outfitters.. it’s sheer in the right places and very dreamy. Clawtooth made its first mesh hair and it’s gorgeous. Glamazon, a perfect name for a beautiful hair. The feather necklace is from Yummy! All of this that I’ve mentioned you can get at Collabor88.

I love love love you Collabor88 thank you for the continued awesomeness.

Home Expo sneak peek!

Miss Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie invited me over to her super secret work space and I managed to snag a few pics for a super sneaky preview of her projects in the works for the 5th Annual Home and Garden Expo.

As you can see though I’m not able to show much.. it is definitely a lovely sense of anticipation to see how cool this expo is going to be. Froukje excels at this mesh stuff and I feel totally honored to get a closer look before the Expo even opens.

I am wearing new hair from Truth. New clothes from ColdLogic and the fantabulous Triumph boots from Gos. My skin is Leah from Glam Affair.

Gizza at Culture Shock

Culture Shock 2012 is now in full swing and well let’s just say it’s difficult to get on the sim. Why? Because it’s packed with awesome like this donation item from Gizza. This dress helps me realize my fantasies of being a princess with its floofy skirts and silken gossamer edges. The dress is gorgeous and the proceeds from it help go for a wonderful cause.

Stumble for your bum on over..

I am a few days late but I wanted to mention this set from Cheeky Pea that is newly released for this round of Stumblebum that started on my May First. I love this, the Coppola set is color change and has multiple poses and comes with a table with some nice accessories.

The top that I am wearing, I totally love. It is new for Stumblebum as well from Aura. This cute little summer top is the perfect compliment to any casual summer/warm spring day outfit.
