• Hunting Around The Grid

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are traveling Around The Grid in 80 Days with the hunt by that name and its 9th annual round. The prizes are hidden inside orange starfishes for $1L apiece, or you can purchase from the starfish at the hunt sign in each store for $25L if you prefer not to hunt. The website has landmarks, hints, and many preview images so you can see sneak peeks of what you can find, and that could help you decide if you want to purchase the prizes :) They are all worth much more than $25L, let alone the single linden dollar if you are adventurous and search around for the hidden one. The hunt started mid-July and runs until the end of September, for the full 80 day experience.


    My first look comes from Grumble and is called Summer Heat Dress. This sleeveless mini really lives up to the name, with its vibrant patterns and right hip with the gathered and tied detail. The prize includes sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Minimizer bodies. 


    Next we see the Cats n' Kittens Boutique prize, the lovely CnK: Egyptian Eye Mini. It combines bare shoulders with long sleeves that are laced on the upper arm, in black with silvery accents. There are sizes included for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. This dress certainly is a striking eyeful!


    Freya's Fashions has a beautiful and unique prize for us called FF Sunni Swimsuit ATG Hunt 2021. The one-piece suit has side cutouts that lead to intricate lacing in the back, and there is a HUD that offers 6 textures for the suit itself plus 6 for the laces and 2 metal colors. The swimsuit comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. 


    There are 3 prizes at GoodVibes, and they all had the same hint so I will add for the female one that it was a good place to find a STARfish :) I right clicked the hunt object then edit then the contents tab to see which prize was inside before I bought it to make sure I had the correct one. It holds the Womans Tropix Set, a cleverly compiled look from head to toe. The dress and panties (solid white) each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, while the sandals and camera are unrigged so we can adjust them. The men get a matching outfit, and there is a third unisex prize of a spinning seahorse to ride :)


    My final look of the evening is a fun outfit from the Harambee-Gwassi charity store called Boho bright pants & top. The bandeau style top comes in a Maitreya mesh body size only, but the matching pants include several sizes for classic avatars (standard S, M, L plus fitmesh S, M, L) as well as Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous body sizes. The colors are delightful, and there are plenty of ways to wear this with a non-Maitreya body...anything from a solid white tank top to your favorite pasties to a pretty bikini top. 

    I am back from my weekend blogging break, but only for one day unfortunately. The poorly timed checkup for my infected toenail (mostly better, whew!) will prevent me from having time to take photos and notes in order to be properly ready to blog tomorrow evening. I feel awful about that because I have a dentist appointment on Thursday that will also cause me to take a night off from blogging, so it will be a light week here at Midnight Magpie. I will still try to pack each post with high quality freebies and affordable offers, and ask for your patience when I am not here. My weekend was a good one, and I am excited as always for the new month and all that means in SL :) New rounds of hunts and events, and many stores change out their group gifts on a monthly basis, so there will be lots to explore. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Summer Nights Hunt

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are exploring a hunt that I just found out about by random chance, visiting a participating store for a different reason and spotting the sign at the landing zone :) It is called the Summer Nights Hunt by Ephemera Events, and we are looking for dark palm trees that appeared either blue, purple, or black to me depending on the lighting. The website guides us with landmarks and hints, although I need to mention that it seems several stores have moved since the hunt began because I did a lot of searching to find the new locations. The ones I am providing for the prizes I'm sharing tonight are the current ones to the best of my knowledge. There are free $0L prizes at every location, with most offering others up to $15L apiece and some have several additional prizes for us to enjoy. As someone who has seen the movie Grease way too many times, I find myself humming it's Summer Nights song as I type, and while I was hunting. The hunt is open until the 14th of August, so we have about 2 weeks to enjoy these summer nights :)


    For my first look, I visited +Blue Blood+ and found their free palm tree containing the beautiful Delusion Special Edition dress. It comes in a standard size for classic avatars, as well as versions to fit Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. The loose style looks great in the mix of bold and dark colors, and I especially like the little lace trim by the trio of buttons on the bodice.


    Next we see the London Girl::Sally Romper which is the free prize at the hunt's starting location. It includes blue and pink versions each in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. I did not see the blue Maitreya size however, so I am wearing the blue Legacy on the left which fit my shape pretty well :) I think the fact that the style is not skintight helped. Both colors are sheer and trimmed in lace for a flirtatious appearance.


    Black Swan has a free prize for all of the BOM (Bakes on Mesh) fans like myself, their Simone - lace catsuit. It can be worn on classic avatars as well as BOM compatible mesh bodies, in a single tattoo layer that consists of the sheer cap sleeved top with flowers and the polka dotted tights. It is an intricate design whose texturing really caught my eye!


    There are several $15L prizes at MadCatCreations, plus a free one each for men and women. This beauty is the free MCC - woman - Geo Summer Dress single, which is a formfitting mini with both straps draped over the same left shoulder. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Kupra (Bimbo, Low, and Original), Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The vibrant colors will help make your summer night or any time of year bright and flirty.


    For my final look this evening I chose two of the free gifts to share, starting with the Toxic Tshirt from g-spot on the left. It includes sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite bodies, all in black with green trim and a matching toxic (radiation?) symbol that has begun to drip. For a lighter take that puts me in mind of the 60's event from my previous post, be sure to find the free prize at Petite Mort. It holds their Moon Child Tee, a cropped short sleeve ombre that says "Stay Wild Moon Child" with crossed arrows and a dreamcatcher. It is provided in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh body sizing. Both of these are looking effortlessly sharp with one of the Delizio jeans (blue) from their marketplace fatpack gift, several colors in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega. 

    I finally made it over to my parents' for dinner, so it was a good evening :) Tomorrow we are supposed to have beautiful weather for the farmers market, and then I am going to try to relax and maybe watch a movie. I hope you all have a terrific weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • The 60s Event

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to invite you to The 60's Event at Wonderland Beach, where there is a treasure hunt with some trivia. There are gifts hiding in brightly colored gift boxes throughout the shopping area, mostly neon green with either hot pink or blue ribbon. Most distribute a gift as soon as you click them, while some will ask you a 60's trivia question that you have 60 seconds to answer. If you get it wrong, you can always click again and give another answer :) The event area is beautifully decorated as always, and I really do enjoy the theme era from a fashion and artistic standpoint like music and movies. 


    My first look is the treasure hunt prize from M called Dress - Tam White #3/2. This flirty strapless mini has bold slits on each hip and a plunging neckline. The floral embroidery is lovely too :) This gift includes sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.


    The Vale has two charming prizes inside their gift box, so I am showing them off side by side. On the left is their Lilac Boho Shorts and Top with the Mint version on the right, both of which include Maitreya sizes for both parts. The tops have gorgeous sheer sleeves with full cuffs, and those bared shoulders are a sexy detail. The short shorts have front and rear pockets with delicate embroidery on the rear ones. 


    Next I paired the mint shorts from The Vale with another great prize, the .{SA}. Casey Halter Top Summer Heat from Starlight Apparel. It is provided in sizes for eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya. Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. The tropical foliage makes this a dreamy choice for the season!


    The other shorts from The Vale (lilac) paired well with The Bold Llama Co. PLANTING PEACE Tee prize, although you can wear them with anything that makes you happy of course :) The comfy tank top has a delightful floral peace symbol on it, and comes in standard mesh sizes as well as versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. 


    My final look this evening is a closer view of the .::LUNA::. Body Art - MIX I - Nails treasure hunt prize. There are appliers included for Belleza and Maitreya nails, each of which offers 6 designs that symbolize the event's theme wonderfully. I merged two images here to show you two of those six, a tie dyed heart pattern and a bright pink flower on a vivid blue background. The "flower child" era is right at home on my nails :) 

    It was a more peaceful day here, and I am putting effort into being more positive today. There are plenty of good reasons to be happy, so those are my focus :) I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • More DM Designs

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I decided to share some more group gifts and lucky board prizes from DM Design. They all need the free DM group tag to claim, and there are plenty of ladies' clothing treats that can be yours with a few clicks and in the case of lucky board prizes, a little luck and patience. I really like their style, and am grateful for all the chances to save money with these free goodies. 


    My first look is a group gift called DM Design Afrodita Tights-1, and it make my hippie heart happy! The one piece outfit comes in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a 10 texture HUD so you can change the look easily. There are so many fun details, like the deep neckline leading to the front zipper, and the flared cuffs beneath loosely laced sides.


    I love the simple elegance of the DM ~ Alma Gown Gift and its sleek satiny texture. The draped back shows off just enough skin, and would be perfect to frame a tattoo or a necklace that hangs in the back. This gift includes standard mesh sizes as well as eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions.


    Pretty in pink, this is the DM ~ Kashy Dress Gift that I was also glad to claim from the group gifts wall with my DM Design tag. It comes in standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, with sizes for Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. There is a tan leather belt built in, and the strapless style looks so pretty with the gathered back and ruffled skirt. 


    Next we see the intriguing DM Design Whitney-1 Outfit lucky board prize. It consists of the armor (bra cups) and skirt each in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. There is also a HUD with 12 color options for each, so you can mix and match if you prefer. The skirt hem is daringly diagonal to be extra high on the left, and as you can see from the rear view it provides a rather cheeky view ;) I enjoy the way the top has a metallic sheen, to contrast the denim texture of the skirt beautifully.


    My final look this evening is another lucky board prize, the DM Design Baby Dress 6. It is provided in sizes for Altamura, Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. The zipper in the front is so eye-catching, and the deep maroon color is a great backdrop for the delicate pink flowers. They appear on half of the back of the dress too, but no zipper is needed back there :)

    It was a quiet day that led to a frustrating evening, and I am a bit embarrassed that I let someone's behavior provoke me into snapping at them pretty badly. I think I got tired of not being able to reason with them, and their refusal to understand that things they do affect others very negatively. I really shouldn't have shouted and gotten so angry though, not productive or good for my health. I need to stay calm tomorrow so I can feel up to going out Friday and Saturday :) Meanwhile I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • DM Design Delights

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting DM Design, whose group is free to join and lets you claim several fantastic group gifts. It also gives you access to their lucky boards, with a wide array of prizes that you can win if your initial shows up. I randomly chose some of each to show you in this post, because I do enjoy variety :)


    My first look is a group gift called DM ~ Anis Dress Gift, in a rich teal color. It is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body versions. I was drawn to the low slung belt of sequins built into it, and the way the loose fit drapes in the back. 


    Maybe you're in the mood for something even more revealing, then you should claim their DM Design Indyra Dress-3 group gift. It is daringly sheer with carefully placed lace embroidery, which you can change the appearance of with the 10-color HUD included. The dress itself comes in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizes. 


    The DM Design Lidia Dress is a sensational group gift with lots of possibilities. The dress includes standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, plus sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. There is also a HUD with a lucky 13 texture options, some solid colors and a few pretty patterns. 


    I am a big fan of denim, and it looks great combined with other fabrics like in the DM Design Lola Dress 1 lucky board prize. It comes in Altamura, Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizing. The heart shaped cutout is an irresistible touch, and from the back it almost looks like a swimsuit with a ruffled skirt rather than a full dress.


    For my final look of the evening, I slipped into the lucky board prize called DM Design Kasandra Dress. It includes standard mesh sizes along with versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. The included HUD offers 11 color combinations for the dress and its extra sheer skirt layer. Some of the colors have a patterned texture for the skirt, while others go simply translucent white like on the right above. 

    It was a much calmer day than yesterday here, and my infected toe is feeling slightly better already so that is a relief. I have a foot spa that I'm using to soak my toe (well, putting both feet in there) that does vibrations and heat, so it is a good excuse to pamper myself in the name of healing ;) It has jets too for bubbles but I am always afraid of somehow making a mess with that so I haven't been using that feature. The epsom salts in the water are really soothing too, so I can relax while soaking. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Fun With FabFree

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I was in the mood to feel fabulous, courtesy of the many participating designers of FabFree in SL. Their inworld group is free to join, and entitles you to a bevy of wonderful group gifts. I also greatly appreciate being kept up to date on so many sales, events, and special offers as the group and blog have done for my entire time in SL. I have always been a very grateful fan :) Their listing of gifts seems to be constantly growing, with clothing and accessories for men and women as well as some home decor and other special treats. 


    My first visit was to GeMyles, where I happily claimed their Natalea Dress & Heels gift by right clicking the sign, paying $1L, and was immediately refunded while the gift was delivered. This versatile look includes the dress in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with coordinated heels in Belleza, TMP, Maitreya, and Slink High sizing. There is also a HUD provided with 32 solid colors to choose from (tints the entire dress plus shoes all at once) along with 3 patterns each for two sections of the dress, bodice and top ruffle. As always, I suggest having some fun clicking various buttons and seeing what look you create, then adjusting to your tastes. 


    For a casual gift with a hippie flavor, be sure to visit Oldurmek & Co. with your FabFree "I am Fabulous" tag active to pick up their O & C Nonee Lounger. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and is a one-piece romper with the appearance of two. Tie dye does make me smile, as you can probably guess if you've read here before :) There is also a male gift at this store, in the very same room, so bring your favorite male friends or grab it for your male alt if you wish.


    Vips Creations is ready for business with their FabFree group gift, this striking Laura-Green outfit. The shirtdress has a fitted version for classic avatars, as well as sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The matching shoes come in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high sizes, and the handbag is provided in 3 different hold pose versions, two of which can be seen above.


    'Tis the season...no, not that season, swimsuit season! The current FabFree group gift from -LEIGH- is their Flirty Swimsuit that definitely lives up to its name. The top and bottom are provided in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. There is also a HUD included with 3 color choices, so you can decide what shade of floral pattern you prefer.


    My final look of the evening comes from Phoebe, and is a pair of dresses called *P* Olivia Mesh Dresses. There are Summer (left above) and Tropical textures, each in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes, plus a standard version for classic avatars. I do love halter style dresses, and this plunging neckline is a beautiful detail to show off cleavage. 

    It was an adventurous day, but not in a good way. One of my toenails decided to dig in deeper after being trimmed I guess, and this morning I realized it was painful, red, and swollen. The podiatrist's office got me in within less than a hour of calling, and the doctor confirmed it is infected which meant more cutting and two antibiotics (oral and topical). Ugh. I will also be soaking my foot daily until my follow-up visit next week. It was just so sudden, felt fine this time last night, so it was quite a shock. At least I don't have a fever to go with the infection, and we certainly caught it early. Oh well, it could have been far worse and I am following all the instructions to make sure it heals well. I definitely need more sleep tomorrow though ;) I hope you're all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • More COCO Group Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a look at some more of the plentiful *COCO* Designs group gifts that are currently available. There are 4 displays (low walls or long boards?) with group gifts on them, all of which have a place to click for the link to join their free group. I am so grateful for their generosity, and enjoy having so many choices to share with all of you.


    My first look of the night is the beautiful *COCO*_Gift_HalterGown. It is provided in sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with an unrigged crescent necklace that you can adjust if needed. The fabric has a velvety texture that I love, and the daring right side slit makes it extra sexy. 


    Next we see a pairing of gifts, starting with the *COCO*_Gift_CropTee. It greets us with a friendly "Hola" on the front, and comes in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. It looks cute with the *COCO*_Gift_SideStripWideLegPants_Leopard group gift, a sporty pair of pants in a fun print that you will receive in sizes for Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The white stripes down each side are fun touches, and I do enjoy leopard print. 


    Another duo can be seen here, as I changed into the *COCO*_Gift_GatheredFrontCamiTop_Yellow for another summery treat. This top is gathered in the front with long ties dangling down the front, and it includes sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite bodies. The pants are our gift called *COCO*_Gift_HighWaistCargoPants_Camo, another pattern that can be used as a neutral and worn with just about any color. This gift comes in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. 


    Perhaps you are in the mood for something a bit more seductive, then I suggest you claim the *COCO*_Gift_MidiSlipDress_OrangeGold. There is something so sensual about a good quality slip dress, and this one has an ethereal appearance because of the fabric texture. It comes in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh body sizes. 


    The *COCO*_Gift_RuffleMiniDress_Red is my final look of the evening, and a very pretty choice for your next night out. The dress has two versions, with a red ruffle or a white ruffle, and each are provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The crimson color is such a flattering hue, and the style accentuates our every curve.

    How was everyone's weekend? Mine was pretty nice, although it was hotter than I expected Saturday morning at the farmers market. I wore plenty of sunscreen, and picked out some delicious treats for the week :) The week ahead should be fairly tame, as I do not have any plans other than hopefully getting blood drawn that I should have done a few weeks ago. Time keeps on slipping....I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Looking Chic with COCO

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to show you some of the generous group gifts found at *COCO* Designs. Their group is free to join, and there are 4 displays of gifts that my link should put you in the center of all. Please do explore them all, and you will find an impressive selection of clothing and accessories that you can claim for free. Whether you are looking for casual or more dressy, modest or revealing, you can find a wide range among these thoughtful gifts.


    For my first look this evening, I chose the *COCO*_Gift_LaceHemCamiDress_PinkFloral. This beautiful slip dress has a scalloped hem and delicate spaghetti straps that lace the back together. It comes in Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. 


    Next I paired two gifts together, starting with the *COCO*_Gift_BacklessTwistTee_Red-17. This fun top is provided in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies, in a vibrant shade of red with clever styling. It looks great with the *COCO*_Gift_HighWaistColorJeans_DarkGrey which is yet another group gift you can pick up for free. The high waist is contrasted by the low rear pockets which I think draws attention to booty curves just right ;) The jeans come in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. 


    I kept those jeans on here but changed into the *COCO*_Gift_OneShoulderTop+Choker_Blue which I think will pair well with many types of pants or skirts. The top itself comes in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, while the separate choker has Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. I really appreciate being able to choose which way to wear, with or without, since the choker adds something but there are times you may have a special necklace you already want to wear. It is helpful for those who wear collars with sentimental meaning also. 


    If you want to get dressed up this weekend, I would love to suggest picking up this very pretty *COCO*_Gift_FeatherHemDress. Its strapless style fits snugly through the bodice and hips, then is bursting with feathered fun to mid-thigh. The gift includes Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite body sizing. 


    Many weekends are casual for me, so I am really enjoying the *COCO*_Gift_DenimJumpsuit which is my final look this evening. The duo of jumpsuits are in blue and dark blue, each to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The slender straps and flirty cutout in the back are nice touches, and the full cropped legs make me think of breezy late summer/early fall evenings.

    Another weekend, another change in plans...this time it was another postponed dinner at my parents'. I'm fine and they are too, it was just a case of bad timing. As of right now I am still going to the farmers market in the morning, then doing a bunch of boring household things for the rest of the weekend. I will try to watch more Marvel movies too, since I am still way behind :) As far as SL goes, I just might try out a different mesh head since I have been in a Genus rut for ages even after picking up free group gift heads from other brands. Tweaking a shape to get things just the way I prefer can be so tedious, no wonder I'd put it off! But the results can be worth it for variety's sake. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • More 13Event Goodies

    Hiya everyone! Tonight is a part two of the 13Event group gifts, since there were just too many for only one post :) It is free to join the 13Event group, and there are over 40 gifts to claim so it is very much worth a visit. Plus it is a great excuse to do some shopping! This is a relatively new event and is only their second round so far, but I am definitely impressed with what I've seen. The array of designers is remarkable, and I look forward to future rounds too.


    First we see the FurtaCor*Candy Dress gift, which is as versatile as it is lovely. The dress is provided in 5 classic and 5 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, plus versions for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD that lets you choose from 30 textures (mixture of solids and patterns) for the main dress, 30 for the skirt alone, and 3 for the lace layer under the skirt. Clicking a main dress button will change the entire thing at once, then if you want the skirt to be different you would click that next. The lacy under-layer goes last.


    Ruxy is offering a trio of pert dresses as their 13Event gift, called Diana Red. There is just one size that seems to be for the Maitreya body, at least it fit mine perfectly. There is a solid red, red flower (left above), and red plaid (right) that all have a halter style and are short enough to double as a long shirt if you wish. You can see from behind that the back right hip is hiked up fairly high, so I will probably layer some shorts or jeans beneath for non-adult locations.


    Next we have the Charazad gift of "Touch my Soul" Fatpack which includes the dress in two versions and the thigh high boots. The solid and transparent dresses are each provided in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature Alice, Star, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizes. You will also find the peeptoe boots in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The fatpack part is courtesy of a handy HUD, which offers an amazing 144 colors that you activate by clicking the button for which piece you are tinting and then click the little color button you desire. The dress is quite sexy in solid with those crisscross straps, then the transparent version ramps that up even more!


    I also claimed the ladies gift from MadCatCreations (they have two displays next to each other, male and female items, each with its own gift) called MCC - Boho Fairy Complete. The top, sheer skirt, and solid skirt are each packed separately in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. Each folder also has an 8 texture HUD so you can change the look to suit your personal tastes. I am wearing the sheer skirt on the left above, and it has shorts built in so it is still appropriate to wear wherever you wish. 


    My final look of the evening is the alluring .:Beyond:. Samay - Black bikini. It includes the top and thong each in solid and patterned versions, all in sizes for Freya, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The wraparound top is revealingly low cut, and the pattern is beautiful crescent moons with stars. This is such a great gift for these steamy summer months!

    It has been a weird day so I will keep this short and sweet :) I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • 13Event Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to invite you to the 13Event, where you will find a fantastic selection of sales offers and free group gifts. It probably will not surprise you that I am focusing on those group gifts tonight, which you can claim by joining their free group and clicking all the gift boxes at each display. There are over 40 participating designers, so there is much to see and appreciate. 


    My first look this evening is the S-Pearly dress from Suna Design, which is a flirty style with front and back both created of straps linked by narrow bands in solid colors to match the floral print of the skirt. The dress comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing, with a 6 color HUD so you can change the look easily. 


    Next I slipped into the FF Original - Dress Alexia SKULL IV which is the group gift from Fatal Fashion. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Tonic Curvy mesh bodies, with a playful pattern of skeletons dancing about. That could give it a slight Halloween flavor, but it does not look out of place any time of year if you enjoy the Goth vibe.


    [ LsR ] is offering their Sexy Treshi Sport Dress as the event's group gift, for which I am very grateful :) This long tank style dress has pinstripes down each side to match the color of the trim outlining the neckline and arm holes, and speaking of colors there is a HUD with 8 combinations of hues. They all say QUEEN on the front with the number 69 on the back. The dress comes in Freya, Isis, and Maitreya mesh body sizes.


    The gift from BlackLace is their provocative VIVI DRESS BY BL, with a daringly asymmetrical hemline that rides high on the left thigh and an intricate sheer bodice. It is provided in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Minimizer mesh bodies. This is clearly not your basic little black dress :)


    My final look of the evening is a flirty one, starting with the :::WATERMELON:::Helix Outfit  group gift. It comes in system/BOM layers and can be worn by classic avatars or BOM-compatible mesh bodies, and has solid teal sections on a translucent dark material. I also added the SPT-Beach gift from Spirit Tattoo, which is also a system/BOM layer so it was very easy to wear with the outfit. I included a closer view so you could catch the details of the surfboard in front of the waves and sun. I really like the upper ribcage placement, probably quite painful in RL but we get to enjoy the magic of SL with pain-free body art.

    My day went pretty smoothly, with the podiatrist appointment being slightly less painful than I'd feared. Apparently going there consistently is training my toenails to grow correctly or at least somewhat straighter, so they are easier to deal with. The weather was decent, and I am ready to relax tomorrow before a couple of busy but enjoyable days. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Escape The Ordinary

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we get to Escape The Ordinary with the hunt of the same name :) It is a $0L - $2L hunt where the prizes are hidden in gift boxes that resemble beige cardboard with a touch of pink blush to them, tied with twine. You will find an example on most of the store's signs, clickable for a hint. I really enjoyed being a part of the blogging team for this hunt, and am grateful to every single designer for bringing a touch of the uncommon to SL. 


    First up we have the flirty ~*SD*~ HF183F [ETO2] prize from Starshine Design. Find their gift box for just $2L and you can claim this daring dress in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh body sizes. The front reads "I'm a good girl with bad habits" and I can certainly relate ;) The hemline is a bit longer in the back, which by the way is solid without any cutouts like the front. I love the bright teal color!


    This fascinating look is the [Ari-Pari] Shazia Dress, which you can claim for just $1L by finding their gift box. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a HUD that offers 5 colors for the main dress and 5 matching colored patterns for the trim. I feel like a celebrity in this, one who is heading to a fancy event like the Met Gala. 


    +BlueBlood+ has two gifts waiting for us to find, starting with the Edge Special Edition t-shirt dress above. This free prize includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, in terrific colors and playful texturing. It gives me cyberpunk vibes, anyone else?


    The $1L hunt prize at +BlueBlood+ is called Darkness Corset Special Edition, and is provided in the same sizes as the other prize: Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. It has a wash of purple to pink to teal down the front, and the buckles down the back are quite eye-catching. This is the kind of top that works with anything from a full skirt to your favorite pants, or just panties if you are in a more intimate setting.


    My final look shows you two of the three birds from the Beehead Studios prize called V A P O R B Nightlight. The pet version is on my shoulder, the Chonk size is to the right (my avi's left), and the Smol (small) version is not shown but is closer to the pet in size. Each of these lights can be turned on or off by clicking, for a delightful glow that reaches up to 10 meters. The one on my shoulder is off, while the chonk cutie is on and providing considerable light :) Have I mentioned lately how much I love birds? So there is no surprise that I am tickled pink by this prize.

    It was a calm day at home, which I was going to refer to as quiet but it was literally loud since there is still work being done outside that involves wood chippers among other noisy equipment. Tomorrow I have a podiatrist appointment for my frequent ingrown toenails, all that digging is not fun but it is necessary so I will grit my teeth and take calming breaths. I hope you are all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Beached Bunny Bounty

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a look at several more prizes from the Beached Bunny Hunt, a longtime tradition that is in its 11th year. There are teal beach pails hidden at each participating store for just $1L apiece, easy to find by following the hints and landmarks on the hunt's website. There are preview photos for most of them, so you can get a good idea of what you will be able to claim from each pail. I was familiar with most of the designers who are taking part, but a few were new to me which does make me happy as well. The mixture of old and new makes it special :) 


    My first look this evening comes from the Cats n' Kittens Boutique, called CnK: Double the Trouble Set. This duo of swimsuits comes in blue and pink versions, each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The color accents are the straps which cross in the back and wrap around the waist to form a delicate belt. The swimsuits have moderate coverage in the rear, yet the plunging neckline reveals flirty cleavage in front. 


    There is something so fun about a strapless romper, so I was delighted to find the pail containing the AC: Coral Reefer Romper at Applique` Chic. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body sizes. There is also a HUD provided with 6 colors to choose from, since variety is always appreciated. 


    I can't decide what I like best about the prize from Bunny Cat, the colors or the romantic style! It is called .BC. Marina Dress-Pink and is an ombre maxi dress that has an intricate paneled skirt and clever gathering at the waist. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Dragon, Fox, Tiger, and Werewolf mesh bodies. I think it would be fun wear this over a BOM bikini at the beach as a gorgeous coverup!


    The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. has a clever gift for us called DON'T TOUCH ME Tee, and it really made me chuckle. It reads "FREE HUGS just kidding DON'T TOUCH ME", which is how I find myself feeling sometimes especially with people I don't know. At least virtual hugs are germ-free and safe for friends :) The prize includes standard mesh sizes along with versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. I paired it with the white pair of jeans from my favorite marketplace freebie from Delizio, an entire fatpack of colors in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega.


    My final look of the evening is the Blue Jeans Bikini from "Freda". Its bustier top and thong bottom are each included in Freya, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Rebirth Eden, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. Denim is one of those materials that is not always comfortable in RL unless it's been worn and washed a bunch, yet in SL we can wear it even in styles that might not suit RL like a thong. The unique bra cups and ruffling are great details here.

    I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Enticing Summer Treats

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more Beached Bunny Hunt prizes to share, all of which can be found inside teal beach pails for $1L apiece by following the landmarks and hints on the hunt's website. I have done many hunts in my time in SL, and some like this one are consistently fun with genuinely helpful hints that make sense while being quite well organized. I would also like to show you the Entice offerings for this week's Saturday Sale, and while Saturday is over the sales prices last for a few more days :) So you can save money to look terrific!


    My first look is the Go Frock Yourself hunt prize called GFY-Beach Dress. This cute strapless mini has a loose but flattering fit and comes in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body versions. There is also a HUD with 7 texture choices, all of which are summery and really beautiful. The pineapple in sunglasses makes me think of a Bob's Burgers episode, so that alone makes it a winner in my book!


    Maybe your plans this week include a beach or pool, then please be sure to find the prize at Crayon's Closet named Paint Splash Bikini. The top and bottom are each provided in eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. The rear view is noteworthy because of the thong styling and the way all the top's straps come together in one fun bow. 


    ART & FASHION always lives up to their name by combining the two concepts, as with their pretty HOPE MINI DRESS prize. It comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus versions for Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The balloon above the figure on the front might represent hope, based on the dress name :) I really like the single shoulder style and the rear cutout, not to forget the right thigh opening. 


    Another perfect seasonal prize is the [Ari-Pari] Wild Child Bikini seen here. This two piece leopard print swimsuit is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes, with a HUD offering 10 color variations of this striking texture. I love the various bursts of colors, which give me strong Lisa Frank childhood flashbacks in the best way :) 


    Time to head to Entice for their Saturday Sale selections! This week we have several choices that are variations of their Wolves Dress, like the Tattered - Plum I am wearing on the left above, and the Leather - Midnight to the right. The tattered versions are shorter because of the ripped hem, and have tears in various spots as though were were playing rough with some wolves ;) The fabric is also sheer, particularly compared to the leather. These choices, plus another color of each style, are just $75L each until the 22nd which is Thursday. Then we have the previously released color sets in each style, which are on sale for $199L each (down from $300L) or in fatpacks with 2 bonus colors for $449L (discounted from $599L). If you simply cannot choose and desire them all, the mega fatpack includes every color you'd receive in the dark tattered, light tattered, dark leather, and light leather fatpacks so 40 amazing options for $1299L which is regularly $1599L. No matter which you choose, you will receive sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The fatpacks all function by use of HUDs so they are easier on the wallet and inventory space :) 

    It was a hot and busy weekend, but I enjoyed it and was glad it went well. I got a little overheated when leaving the farmers market and felt unwell for a brief time, but the air conditioning in the car helped. This week should be decent, with an appointment Wednesday then the usual weekend plans, but not much else. I hope you all had a fun weekend and are enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Beached Bunny Hunt

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I explored the Beached Bunny Hunt path, which brings us $1L prizes hiding inside teal beach pails at each stop. There are landmarks, hints, and preview photos on the hunt's website to guide us, so you can see ahead of time what valuable treats we are finding for such a deeply discounted single linden dollar. It looks like this is the 11th round of this particular hunt, which is an impressive feat and one I am grateful for each summer.


    Our first stop is Grumble, who happens to be the force behind the Evil Bunny Productions hunts and events. Their gift is simply called BBH11 Hunt Gift and consists of the tank top and casual shorts in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Minimizer sizes. The top has a brightly colorted pattern, and the shorts are loosely gathered with a drawstring which is a fun detail. 


    I also found the pail at Indigenous, which contains their beautiful Lemonaide dress. It comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Signature Alice mesh bodies. There is also a pair of BOM (system layer) panties that I am not wearing on the right because they hide the bum cleavage that I wanted you to be aware of :) Speaking of that rear view, how great are those dainty crossed straps? The lemon slices look very pretty against the multicolored background too.


    Summertime hunts bring out the best swimsuits, like this EC Doria Swimsuit Aqua from Emerald Couture. Its straps provide a shapely style that hug the curves beautifully, and it comes in plenty of sizes to fit nearly every body. There are standard mesh sizes included as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Kupra, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions. 


    Maybe you are in the mood for a one piece swimsuit, then please head to Starlight Apparel to find their pail. It holds the .{SA}. Piper Swimsuit Mermaid in sizes for Freya, Isis, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Hourglass, and Hourglass Petite body sizing. I really like the scale texture in the mix of pinks, purples, and blues. The ruffle waist and crossed straps are excellent touches as well. 


    My final look this evening brings bold primary colors in an equally bold zigzag pattern. The prize from BlondeQueen is their BBH - BQ:::Chevron Swimsuit::: Blue/Red&Blue/Yellow. Both versions are provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and I was drawn to the playful ruffles. Fun fact, one of these has my high school colors and the other has their main sports rival's colors, so I giggled at the memories. Both were Catholic schools so obviously this was not part of either uniform ;) My school's blue was a different shade though, a bit lighter with a tiny hint of teal. 

    My plans are always changing, and we had to cancel my dinner at my parents' again this week unfortunately. I am still going to the farmers market tomorrow morning though and will most likely see them there. The weather will be hot so I will be taking precautions and going as early as possible before the full heat of the day is upon us. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post is a part two of yesterday's [WellMade] mini hunt at The Free Dove, with this half taking place at the [WellMade] mainstore. The hunt object we are looking for is the same white dove outline on a pink full moon, and you will need the [WellMade] group tag (free to join) active to claim them. Just explore the store, find each prize, and give it a click. While you have that group tag selected, be sure to stop in their group gifts room to see what else you might claim, and the game room has lucky chairs/boards and midnight manias for us to participate in. There is lots to see and enjoy during your visit!


    For my first look, I started with the [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #6 dress, which comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. This mini has delicately patterned straps and the skirt is laced tightly on each thigh. It goes really well with the shoes which are our [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #7 prize. When you find this treat you will receive the strappy sandals in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high sizing. I certainly do appreciate their versatility in addition to how pretty they are.


    Our #7 shoes also coordinate quite well with the [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #8 Mini Dress prize which is trimmed with lovely leopard print. It comes in sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, with pleated short skirt and built in belt. I like the strapless style and the zipper down the front, as details add up to make an impressive look.


    For this outfit I changed into the [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #9 Dress which has a fun tulip style skirt with leopard print. There are sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. Then I added the cute prize called [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #10. These charming sandals fit Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, and Slink high feet. You can easily mix and match these hunt prizes with not only each other but anything else you may have in your wardrobe that could use a little boost. 


    I did mention lucky boards in the game room, and if you do not stumble across it while hunting there are teleporter boards throughout the store that you can use to hop there directly. One of the boards decided to change to my initial while I was visiting, so I was excited to win their [WellMade] Elys Outfit. The dress and jacket each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and there is a HUD for the dress that offers 20 colors each for 'up' and 'down' sections of the dress. The top section of the dress has a slender strip that is part of the down or lower section for tinting purposes, and you can choose the same shade for both so it all blends in. Did you notice all the flirty straps and cutouts of the dress? I love that it looks just as great with the jacket as without. 


    For my final look this evening I randomly chose one of the many group gifts available for the store's group, which are in small packages on shelves on the wall next to the one with multiple other groups' gifts. This is the [WellMade] Beatrix Dress GIFT, and I am guessing it was from Halloween season based on some of the textures available on the HUD :) Said HUD offers 10 solid colors for the collar and top, then 10 patterns for the skirt, so you can do lots of fun mixing and matching. Please excuse the way the fluttery skirt cuts through my hand on the right, it was just a quirk of the pose that I didn't notice while taking the photo. The reason I said Halloween is that there are pumpkins and bats on two of the textures, but you know I love finding ways to wear things year round even if they were created with a holiday in mind. 

    So, I have a startling confession for all of you...are you ready? I have never seen a single one of all the Marvel Movies! *gasp* I don't even really know why, I just don't find time to see many movies at all which can be disappointing. My housemate decided (after yet another movie-related comment that I didn't get) that this was intolerable and I simply must start watching, LOL, so my dinner became dinner and a movie. We are going in timeline order rather than release order, so today was most of Captain America. I expect to finish it before my dinner outing tomorrow, and if so we may start the next one Saturday after the farmers market. If it stops me from being treated like I just escaped from a cult or a bunker somewhere, I am all for it :) The funny thing is, by this point I've seen enough memes to have very general ideas of what to expect. It will be nice to piece things together and not feel like such a weirdo outsider, especially at the Saturday market where the topic comes up surprisingly often. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • WellMade at Free Dove

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we continue to enjoy the mini hunts at The Free Dove, this time thanks to [WellMade] who have 10 terrific prizes total. There are 5 each at Free Dove and their mainstore, all in a hunt object of a moon (pinkish or purplish) with a dove outline on it. We need to be sure to check inside and out, and even upstairs at The Free Dove, so you can have fun exploring while finding these pretty doves. All of tonight's looks are from The Free Dove location, with the first 4 photos being hunt prizes and the last one is a gift from the WellMade display. So to claim these for free, we need the Free Dove's group tag "Blessed by a Dove" active when clicking them.


    My first look of the evening is the [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #1 romper. It looks beautiful in leopard print and black, with a halter neckline and bare upper back leading to flared shorts. The prize includes sizes for Altamura Sofia, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Curvy mesh bodies. 


    Next I slipped into the [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #2 Mini Dress, another great prize in black with a touch of animal print. The dress has the appearance of two pieces from behind, but they are connected in the front by a panel gathered with a pretty bow. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. 


    [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #4 Dress has a playful cutout in the front beneath a knotted bodice that creates a lovely neckline. When you find this prize, you will be claiming it in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. 


    For this look I combined two prizes, [WellMade] Free Dove Hunt #5 for the outfit and #3 for the shoes. The outfit consists of the top, thong, and pants each in sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The leopard print of the top and thong go wonderfully with the strappy heels of prize #3, which come in Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, and Slink high sizing. You could pair these with any of the prizes since the colors and pattern are a match without being overly matchy-matchy.


    For my final look of the evening, I had noticed this irresistible gift on the [WellMade] display while I was hunting at The Free Dove, and decided to include it in this post for some bursts of color :) It is called [WellMade] Janet Dress - The Free Dove GIFT and like all the gifts here you can claim it for free with the Free Dove group tag. It includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes, with a HUD offering 5 texture options. The tie dye patterns are fantastic, one might say to dye for? ;) Sorry, I am a big fan of puns and that one works because this is a delightful look!

    My chiropractor appointment went well, even after having to delay it twice, so that was a relief. It was hot out but I wasn't out in the heat much, between a car with air conditioning and a building that was also cooled. I think my neuropathy (nerve pain) reacts more to big changes in temperature either direction. Dinner at my parents' on Friday will be the evening of the hottest day of the week, so that might be a little less comfortable especially since my dad has become one of those perpetually cold older folks. It has become a running joke and he doesn't get upset or offended by our gentle teasing, all in good fun. I hope you're all having a very nice day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Free Dove and Bens Boutique

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to share some Free Dove mini hunt prizes, from one of the two for the month of July. That would be Bens Beauty & Boutique, a wonderful designer who has 5 prizes at The Free Dove and 5 at their mainstore, each inside a seashell or starfish for that summer flavor. All are free to claim with the corresponding free group tag, so the ones at Free Dove will need the Blessed by a Dove group tag while the ones at the mainstore need the Bens store group tag. The hunt signs have photos of the hunt objects and the prizes we will be finding, so be sure to peek at those when you arrive at The Free Dove. I always enjoyed these hunts and was thrilled when they returned this year, as I'm sure you can tell :) As the notecard from the sign will tell you, it is best to check inside and outside, even upstairs, to find all of these tricky treats.


    For my first look, I combined two gifts both found at The Free Dove that look great together but can be combined with other wardrobe staples as well. The dress is the Bens Boutique - Zigane Dress Purple, and it comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. The style is so fun with the double straps leading to the same shoulder, and the leathery sheen of the fabric makes the purple color even more attractive. My ears are adorned by the Bens Boutique - Floral Earring Purple, a pair of blossoms in a lighter, lavender type hue that goes nicely with the dress. The large flowers dangle from a relatively long chain that balances their size, and helps them peek out from beneath our hair. 


    One of the shells at the Bens Boutique mainstore holds their Zigane Dress Pattern which is a great choice if you like the first photo's dress but are in the mood for a fabric with a print and more colors. This gift includes the same sizes as the other Zigane Dress, and I am very fond of tropical leaf patterns so it made me smile. Be sure to have your store group tag active when you click their location's shells.


    Both of the prizes seen here can be found at Bens Beauty/Boutique mainstore. The clothing is their Bens Boutique - Arya Outfit, which consists of the top, skirt, and panties. They are each included in Altamura, eBody, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. Since they are separate pieces, you could wear the skirt (which reads Sweet Girl Why Not) without the fishnet panties beneath for example, mix and match to your heart's content. Another seashell contains the Bens Boutique - Calima High Heels Red, just the right shade of crimson to coordinate well with the Arya Outfit if you wish. The peeptoe heels come in Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, and Slink high sizing. 


    I feel pretty in pink with this trio of hunt prizes! The dress is the Bens Boutique - Carly Dress Pink found at the Free Dove, and is a single mesh piece with the appearance of two until you look at the back and see they are connected. It comes in Altamura, eBody, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. The earrings are also in a shell at The Free Dove, their Bens Boutique - Floral Earring Pink. I love the way they are lighter in the center and darker out at the ends of the petals. Over at the Bens Beauty/Boutique mainstore, there is a seashell that is waiting to give you the Bens Boutique - Laine High Heels Pink seen here. These strappy sandals are provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, and Slink high feet. 


    For my final look of the evening, I changed into the Bens Boutique - Carly Dress Pattern found at the Bens mainstore. It comes in the same sizes as the pink version in the prior photo, this time with a print of fun tropical foliage with pops of pink and green. Then I accessorized with the Bens Boutique - Leaf Earring prize found at The Free Dove. These are the type of leaves that also remind me of feathers, and they are gold with a green gemstone on each. I'll bet you have many outfits that you could wear them with, anything that needs a little sparkle. 

    It was a quiet day and I'm glad I didn't have another disturbing dream like I did the night before. That does not make for very peaceful sleep of course. Tomorrow I have an appointment, then nothing interesting until my usual Friday/Saturday plans. I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Deeper Down The Rabbit Hole

     Hiya everyone! Tonight is a part two of our trip Down The Rabbit Hole, at the Evil Bunny Productions event of that name. Here we can find carefully selected items that the designers have discounted for the event, many which match the Alice in Wonderland theme but some of which have a broader appeal. We also have nearly every display offering a group gift for the Evil Bunny Hunts free group, in a bag with a photo of the gift next to it. The event is only open for another week of it's total 10 days, so since it is brief I suggest you plan to visit very soon :) I make it a point not to miss any of their events, as I really do find appealing merchandise and I enjoy the core group of designers who usually take part. 


    I noticed there were several gifts that were just tops, so I chose two of them to start us off :) The pretty blouse on the left is the .BC. Lea Top-Floral from Bunny Cat. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. I was drawn to the bare shouldered style and the way it laces up in the front, with the ties continuing around back to tie in a cute bow. On the right we have the JR Wolf Creations gift called Cards Tank, a layered look with artwork I believe is from the book of the cards painting the roses. This gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. 


    These two gifts are very similar in one respect, while each having a distinct flavor of its own thanks to the respective designers :) The Starlight Apparel gift for the event is their .{SA}. Crown Cropped T-Shirt, which reads "Always wear your invisible crown" on the front. It even has a (visible) crown atop the word always, to remind us that we are always royalty inside. This gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. On the right you will see the ::Sweet Intoxication:: Reagan Tee - Patriotic Rose, which features a lovely bouquet of roses in red, white, and blue that was probably meant for the USA but I know other countries have those colors on the flags as well :) There are sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies waiting for you in this gift. In both of these photos so far, I am wearing the blue Delizio jeans from their marketplace fatpack gift, which are all in system/BOM layers and appliers for Maitreya and Omega. They appear here on my blog quite often because of their versatility. 


    I am ready to enjoy some summery activities with this terrific gift from Indigenous called Rainbow Leopard Bikini. The multicolored ombre is a beautiful backdrop for the leopard spots, and the fun ties highlight the bare back, cleavage, and high hips. The top and thong bottom are each included in Freya, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique body sizes. 


    Another colorful charmer is the LMagnums Sweet Alice Dress - Wild Art group gift. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with a wraparound ruffle that accentuates the bodice opening. The pattern reminds me of zentangle art which is a type of structured drawing that I think is lovely. 


    For my final look of the evening, I changed into the [Ari-Pari] Roses Dress - GIFT which is one of my favorites from this event :) The strapless mini has a flared skirt and pointed neckline, with a gorgeous floral pattern that you can choose from 3 colors for, thanks to the included HUD. The dress itself is sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. 

    I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • Down The Rabbit Hole

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are going Down The Rabbit Hole, with the Evil Bunny Productions event by that name. It just opened on the 10th and runs until the 20th, so a brief window of time to explore the beautifully decorated area filled with displays from over 40 designers. They are offering discounted selections with many matching the Alice in Wonderland theme, and nearly every one has a group gift for the Evil Bunny Hunt group. It is free to join and you get a snazzy "I'm Evil!" tag, LOL, but the group benefit I am sharing tonight would be several of those fantastic gifts at the event. If you are a fan of the Alice in Wonderland books and/or movies, there will be plenty of sales items and gifts to appeal in that sense, while there are some offerings that are more general and you wouldn't need to be a fan to appreciate. Also I think we are all fans of discounts from talented designers on their specially selected merchandise. 


    First we have the g-spot // Madeline Dress group gift, a halter style mini with full skirt and halter neck whose back is laced loosely for a playful peek of skin. The dress is provided in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, with a 4 texture HUD. The intriguing fabric design appears in different colors on the same black background, delightfully dramatic. 


    This is the charming Crayon's Closet - Alice Top & Shorts gift found at the event, with a silhouette of our heroine on the top and a checkerboard pattern on the shorts. Each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. I really like the style of both, especially the way the top is tied at each side beneath the underarm with a teeny bow. 


    I kept those shorts on but changed into the gift from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. here, since the blue of the ocean matched the shorts. Our group gift is their SWIM! Tee, which comes in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The word "Swim" is being reached for by several tentacles, which I would guess indicates an octopus or squid. 


    Next we have the lovely Emerald Couture gift of their EC Lunette Mini Dress Unicorn. This slip of a dress has a knotted left thigh and a mostly bare back, but I think the most special thing about it is the lavender unicorns on a pale green field with a scattering of stars. Claim this gift and you will receive standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body versions. 


    My final look of the evening is the gift from MELANGE called =The Heart Of Alice= OMEGA Ensemble. It consists of an Omega applier for the top and panties with stockings, then we can add the shoes/socks in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high feet. There is even a cute Mister Rabbit who has a built in hold pose, so you can snuggle him until your special someone arrives :) I like the bold colors, and the way the socks are built into the shoes so they are easy to wear and always fit correctly together. 

    Quick hair note of the night- this is the new VIP group gift for Truth Hair, called Curious, and I adore it! Their group has a fee to join, but if you are a fan of their hairstyles it is well worth it to receive free fatpacks as gifts from time to time. This style can be tucked behind either ear or both at once, or neither, all with the stylist tab of any color HUD in the pack. It reminds me a little bit of their older Imani style, but definitely different enough that I am glad to own both. Their new releases always make me happy, and this is no exception. 

    It was a quiet weekend here, and a fairly warm one, so I was happy to stay indoors as much as possible. In the week ahead, I will finally attend a chiropractor appointment that has been rescheduled twice, even if it is stupidly hot again, and I will just take all proper precautions not to overheat. That isn't until Wednesday though, so I will check the forecast again in a couple of days. Meanwhile I hope you all enjoyed your week and have a great day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

  • HYIS Bound in Love

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I will be sharing more HYIS (Hunt for Your Inner Slut) hunt prizes, all of which are free and hidden inside golden penises. As I mentioned yesterday and you can probably guess anyway, LOL, this is an adult themed hunt and many of the stores are not safe for work or children or anyone easily embarrassed ;) The website has the landmarks and hints, or you can click the hunt object example on the sign at each store for the hint in local chat in many cases. I forgot to mention last night that the theme this round is Bound in Love, which leads to plenty of creative takes on that idea. There are just a handful of days left since the hunt wraps up on the 15th, so hurry and find those cocks!


    First we have the Freya's Fashions prize called FF Sigrid Vest (Hearts) HYIS 2021. It comes in standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, as well as eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions. There is also a HUD provided with 9 vest textures, 6 laces colors, and 2 metals to combine any way you please. I paired it with the white pair from the Delizio jeans fatpack which is a free gift on the marketplace.


    Those jeans came in handy for my next look too, where I changed into the [Glitzz] Tay Top - Pride prize. There are two versions of the cropped tank top, fishnet as seen on the left above and knitting on the right, plus a pair of nipple piercings, each in sizes for Freya, Kupra, Kups, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The piercings are bars through each nipple with a heart shaped gemstone on each side, and there is a HUD included with 8 gem colors and 3 metals.


    This hunt prize has a daring rear view, doesn't it? The golden member at Spotlight contains their HFYIS - Nena Dress in Legacy, Maitreya, and Venus sizes. The collar and wrist bands are attached, and really add to the look. There is a HUD provided too, with 3 metal tones to choose from and an on/off option for the built in panties. At first I thought the buttons were colors for the panties, one red and one green, then I realized it was like green = go and red = stop, so on and off :) 


    I also found the prize at *Flamingos* which is their HYIS Corset Gold. Its corset has panties and garter straps built in, and comes in Freya, Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes with alpha layers that you will need for the cinched waist. The white socks (stockings) are a system/BOM layer and match the thong part perfectly. I decided to accessorize with the Slave Necklace - Fatpack prize from !Domina!, a bold chain with Slave tag in sizes for Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies with an unrigged version you can adjust as needed. It is a fatpack not only because of all the sizes but because there is a HUD too, with 5 metal colors to choose from. Variety is certainly the spice of Second Life!


    For my final look of the evening, we see the *HolliPocket* prize Melina Slip-berry. This sheer dress has two versions, lace and dot, each in Legacy and Maitreya sizing. I was pleasantly surprised when trying it on the first time to discover that the berry of its name is apparently blueberry :) This could be a dress or lingerie, depending on your plans for the weekend, and it is up to you if you want to add panties beneath. 

    As often happens when I make plans, my chronic health issues stepped in and made me change them. I skipped dinner at my parents' earlier, and will most likely stay home from the farmers market but will have orders delivered so I will still have plenty of delicious food for the week ahead. It is disappointing, but better to decide ahead and plan appropriately then get there and feel even worse. Nothing contagious, nor life threatening, just inconvenient at times. I'm still taking the evening off from blogging tomorrow (Saturday) to relax, but will gladly be back Sunday with more treats. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
