Home & Garden Expo - Texture Me True (aka The Ceremony)

Finally. Finally!
The doors were locked, the lights turned out
And the employees left for the evening.
They gathered silently
to affirm, and witness, love's vows.

I'm sharing some beautiful textures created by Texture Me True, available at the RFL Home & Garden Expo 2017. Designers, builders of small or large scale, and even bloggers will certainly be interested in these. I even used one of the textures on a wall as a backdrop.

Our world is made much more interesting with beautiful textures!

Home & Garden Expo - Little Llama

A warm weather activity and need a place to socialize and chill? How about these fun items by Little Llama, found at the RFL Home & Garden Expo! The Cooler Hut, well, how clever! It looks just like a cooler. The OctoPicnic table seats 8, and is available in 3 textures. The Condiment Lights hunt gifts really do light up! Invite your friends over. These items are compact enough to fit in a yard, or make it your food/drink area next to a ball field. I think tiny house dwellers will get a kick out them too!

Home & Garden Expo - La Luna

The RFL Home & Garden Expo 2017 has begun! The Expo runs through June 4th. This wonderful event raises money for Relay for Life of Second Life, the virtual counterpart to Relay for Life which is the signature fundraising event for the American Cancer Society.  

Event exhibitors present two 100% donation items, new and exclusive during the Expo's duration. You will find those, and more, as you stroll through the lovely creations which beautify our virtual world! Whether you are decorating a home, tiny garden or windowsill, or industriously landscaping a whole sim, this is the event for you!

In this post, I'm sharing three items created by La Luna - Nature & Art. They are lovely and prim-conscious to assist you in your decorating dreams.

The Ocean, Cute Swimwear and You

I'm not sure this section of the beach is the greatest for surfing, what with the rocks and boat over there, but perhaps if we paddle out farther and avoid? :p  There is a wonderful breeze playing havoc with my hair - Spring Breeze by Doe, at Whimsical. My darling retro swimsuit is by Sn@tch, called Vivian Polkadot Swimsuit. This is one of the riot offerings, with lots of colors included for classic avies and mesh bodies via an Omega hud. Check out the back of it below, and I added the sleeves that are included. I actually wore the swimsuit around while shopping! I added a little black skirt; the waist stripes rose above it and I must say it looked super cute.

In the first pic, I'm using a pose by Secret Poses, called Surf Girl (2). This is from a collection of poses - just add the board and voila, you're posed! Who doesn't need some surfing poses, really...t'is the season.

Flower Gleam and Glow

Flower gleam and glow,
Let your power shine,
Make the clock reverse,
Bring back what once was mine,

Heal what has been hurt,
Change the fates' design
Save what has been lost,
And bring back what once was mine,
What once was mine.

A Tisket, A Tasket, A Strawberry Basket

When one is picking strawberries, it is very important to wear the object of one's search upon one's clothing. That will get the attention of the strawberries, and they will strain to be seen, and picked. And eaten! Oh no, say the little strawberries. Too late. Plopping one in my mouth. Now I have strawberry-stained lips. (Just go with it, it's late and I'm slap-happy blogging, wink.)

So now that THAT paragraph is over with, here's the important part! My dress is called Sammi, by !MiNT! This store is a rebranding from :{Pretty Things}, so we'll find the cuteness we've known in the past and I can't wait to see what's new as well! You can find Sammi at Designer Circle until May 27th. 

My hair is some serious cuteness from -Desmonia-. This is Letoya. She is available at Level Up until May 30th. The textures are beautiful. I think Letoya can be a sexy number too - cast a flirtatious look under those long bangs and see who follows you home.

I have on some new rings, but I'll tell you about those in an upcoming post. How did we function without Bento, that's my question.

I Should've Known All Along

Can't seem to get my mind off of you
Back here at home there's nothin' to do
Now that I'm away
I wish I'd stayed
Tomorrow's a day of mine
That you won't be in

When you looked at me
I should've run
But I thought it was just for fun
I see I was wrong
And I'm not so strong
I should've known all along
That time would tell

A week without you
Thought I'd forget
Two weeks without you and I
Still haven't gotten over you yet

All I ever wanted
Had to get away
Meant to be spent alone

Don't Let Life Get Me Down

"Don't let life get me down, gonna take life the way that I found it..." as the song goes. And that's much easier to do when I've Got the Music In Me! (as performed by Kiki Dee)

Heads up! My outfit is by Masoom, called Alia. And I've got to tell you, it is fan-f'ing-tastic! <~~bonus points, from what movie? All lady DJ's, Hosts, and Music Lovers - this IS the dress. Can anything be more perfect for a music scene?? Alia includes the necklace and bracelet and there are texture change huds for the dress AND jewelry. I found that any slight pokes were easily fixed with alpha cuts, so this can be worn to perfection. I. Adore. This. Dress!

I opened my review copy for my Maddox hair, by Tameless. Omg, try this one ladies, it's thick and wild and as pretty as it is in the front - while allowing for great fashion and/or great cleavage to shine! - it's thick and luxurious in the back. 

Image Essentials was my automatic choice for a great pose to compliment this outfit! This is from the CD Stack scene rezzer/Female Studio, located at the store.

Time to put some great music on!

Farewell to Paris

Farewell! ye splendid citadel, metroplis, called Paris,
Where Phoebus every morning shouts forth refulgent beams;
Where Flora’s bright Aurora, advancing from the horizon,
With radiant light adorning the pure, shining streams;
At eve, when Centaur does retire, while the ocean glides like fire,
And the Universe admires our merchandise and store,
Commanding Flora’s fragrance the fertile field to decorate.
To illuminate that royal Corsican again on the French shore.

                                            ~~ (Excerpt) Napoleon's Farewell to Paris, H.J. Wehman

My Little Corner Of The World

Come along with me
To my little corner of the world
Dream a little dream
In my little corner of the world
You'll soon forget
That there's any other place
Tonight, my love
We'll share a sweet embrace
And if you care to stay
In my little corner of the world
We'll ride away
In my little corner of the world
I always knew that I'd find someone like you
So hop o'er to my little corner of the world

And if you care to stay
In our little corner of the world
We could hide away
In our little corner of the world
We always knew that we'd find someone like you
So hop o'er to our little corner of the world

I Want You At The Moment I Feel Blue

Because you're sweet and lovely girl I love you
Because you're sweet and lovely girl it's true
I love you more than ever girl I do
I want you in the morning girl I love you
I want you at the moment I feel blue
I'm living every moment girl for you
. . .
I've loved you from the moment I saw you
You looked at me that's all you had to do
I feel it now I hope you feel it too

                                             ~~ Excerpt, For You Blue, The Beatles

Check out this month's first round of The Grab Event. It's a huge event with lots to see (and purchase to drag home!)...in this post, I'm showing you a lovely Lelutka eyeshadow applier by MRM [Milla Rasmuson Makeup]. It's called Queen of Flowers. The folder includes a hud with different colors. You can choose just the eyeshadow itself or click for the shadow and pretty tattoo extension onto the cheeks.

My outfit is also found at The Grab Event, called Nemia - created by #bye. It includes multiple fits and color options. This is a complete outfit, including the top, skirt, beads and heels. The pieces can, of course, be mix-and-matched with other wardrobe items...which I always love!

My hair is a sweet style by Rezology, named New York. I like this one - it's sleek, a medium length parted in the middle, sweeping down the back and across each shoulder. This style would look gorgeous with a floral accessory!

Image Essentials' pose set, Anna, is available now at Designer Circle. Are we loving these Bento poses? Yus! The Anna set was released in honor of the store's March Blogger of the Month - Anna Rain. Anna deserves the recognition, she is a wonderful blogger! Here is a link to Anna's Flickr Stream.

.:Tm:. Creation is my especially favorite landscaping/decor store. This is [GP04.2] Blue White Flowers which I have added behind me. Check out this store to beautify your surroundings - either at the store landmark provided below, or they can also be found at the Swank event with lovely selections.
