HGE 2016 Preview with Nomad, True North Designs

On the ocean blue_1024

Welcome Saturday internet surfers of the virtual kind, to CozeySL’s first preview of Second Life’s longest running Home and Garden event, The Expo!

Nomad will be featuring this beautifully meshed (crafted!) golden, glittery themed set as a Gacha for The Expo. Gachas are relatively new to the Expo, and I had a chance to tour both areas (yes there will be 2!) with utmost excitement! (yes judge away!)

Nomad’s Broken Makeshift set will be available for you savvy shopperettes, and this year’s donated items. For this scene, I took the glam factor down a notch, or 10, and thought the pieces would go perfect with a few things from floorplan. I’m really pleased with how the shot turned out and decided to share it in all its raw glory.

On route to Nuisance_1024

I still use the Black Dragon viewer for a majority of the Home and Garden posts here on CozeySL and the Windlight today cooperated for like, the fiiiiirst time in foreeeverrrr. (I sing that a lot around here.)

True North Designs’ Mediterranean Lounge set is available during the Expo as well with a special intro price, so be sure to look that all up and close like. Also here are TND’s Expo items this year:


This particular exhibit will take you through many of TND’s existing sets for each of the rooms in your home.. lots of decor to nab as well so do browse thoroughly.

I’ve created a page here on Cozey which includes pertinent Expo information, its not meant to replace the main website, which I encourage you all to visit. It’s more of a reference sheet I suppose. The Landmarks will take you to each exhibit throughout the 9 regions. There are teleporters available as well, and that first slurl will take you to them. 

Feel free to bookmark my ‘Second Life Home and Garden Expo Reference Page’ for your own personal use. Remember the slurls will not work till the day of opening, in our case this’ll be at Midnight SLT tonight (February 14th). Please let me know if any of the links do not work, and I’ll holler for another limo.

So SL Home and Garden faaammm! Are you ready to Expo?

Don’t forget to check out the official HGE 2016 Flickr pool that includes fellow blogger images and previews. They’ll give you that inspiration to relay just yet!

Night on the Town


It’s a long weekend for me so that means I can finally get a night out on the town to let loose and have some fun. I found this amazing little dress from LaVian & Co by Sam for the 60L weekend sales and knew this was perfect. The “All My Life” dress has a HUD that allows you to choose from a variety of patterns and solid colors to create that perfect look. The top features a modern pattern option on the cap sleeve cropped bodice that fits over the mini pencil skirt that allows me to dance the night away while looking stylish in the process. The skirt has 48 different solid color options to choose from. I added the “Alice Boots” also from LaVian & Co by Sam for 60L weekend for that pop of bright yellow color that makes me happy. though 60 different color options come in the HUD making these truly a go – to ankle boot for those spring fashions. Find both at the SSLavian & Co mainstore landing point this weekend.


My Hair is a brand new release from enVOGUE this weekend called “Sonya”. I love this sleek, modern bob that is longer in the front than the back just like all the modern cuts. It was the perfect addition to this look and is available at the enVOGUE mainstore this weekend.

Rub Me The Right Way

So I saw the new Genie Jewelry set from Plastik and was instantly in love. And of course it lead me down an old path being the 90's kid that I am and I couldn't get the song out of my head until I styled towards it. So whoever let the genie out of her lamp might want to appease her before they try and get her to go back in...
