Home & Garden Expo 2

Hello out there… I have another set of pics of things I picked up at the Home & Garden Expo. This time I am featuring two of my favorite SL stores… Cheeky Pea & Funky Junk.

Funky Junk had out this adorable outdoor set called Sweet Summer as one of the charity items. I snagged it right away. Hey, a good cause means less shopping guilt, right? And… good cause and all. To be honest, my grandmother is undergoing chemo right now for a rare form of lung cancer, so helping the RFL events financially or through blogging makes me feel like I’m doing something. This set is just so adorable, and it screamed “bikini time!” So, I threw on one of my Cool Beans “Bean-Kinis” and got posing. Alas, Cool Beans has closed, but Anyalia Pearl is working on a new store called Spright, so keep your eyes out for more adorableness from the oh-so-adorable Anya. She has a crazy cute dress out at Culture Shock that you’ve likely seen because everyone and their mommas’ been blogging it! And soon I will be, too. 😀 Now… less babbling, more pictures.

Cheeky Pea has a ton of cuteness out at the H & G Expo… I wish I had room for big houses because there are so many cute ones, from Cheeky Pea to Funky Junk and many, many others. However, I only have a small sky platform over our store, so I have to work with that space. But I did pick up this adorable Fairfield desk set! It just seemed perfect for sitting down at as I work on my blog!

I have more things to blog… but I’ve been under the weather, so it’s been slow going. However, you will get to see my 52 Weeks of Color post tomorrow or later today… and I’m doing Harlow Heslop’s Golden Peen blog challenge. Yeah, it’s what it sounds like. Sorta. 😛

Fibromyalgia Awareness Fair!

Okay, I know I said Collabor88 would be my next post, but this event is only three days long and it’s to help promote awareness of a disease I – and many others like me – live with every day. It’s a small event, but really cute. Every vendor also has a freebie out (some more than one!). It’s definitely well worth a quick visit, especially if you love purple! Purple is the “color” of fibromyalgia, so there is an awful lot of purple to be found at this fair.

I just had to ride the ferris wheel… but it’s big! And I might’ve been a little scared. So, I took my cute little teddy bear friend with me… he’s a gift from Ari-Pari! I’m also wearing freebies from Kosh… the tank and pants are both Fair gifts. I also bought a pack of sparkly eye shadows from Kosh, and the purple eye shadow I have on is one of them!

Fibromyalgia Awareness Fair 2012

Eventually, I worked up the guts to grab a seat… and boy, was it fun! My cute little neck pouch is a gift from Concrete Flowers!

Hang on tight...

After walking around and riding the ferris wheel, I was ready for some refreshments! So, I stopped to grab a snowcone! I got grape, so it would match my adorable nails, which are a gift from Virtual Insanity. There was also a chill in the air, so I threw on this lovely little hoodie from Insatiable Fashions.

Ahhh... snow cone

If you want to grab any of the gifts shown here, or shop the event and get more information about fibromyalgia, please visit the Fibromyalgia Awareness Fair 2012! The event runs through the weekend, and there are festivities to go with the shopping. Also, if you have fibromyalgia and want to be part of an SL support group, look for the Join signs or Subscriber Kiosks at the Fair. The Fibro Aware group has monthly meetings. I haven’t been able to attend any yet, but I do hope to in the near future!

PS. I may not get to blog again before we leave for our vacation… but there will be more soon!
