    These Dreams

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to share several free gifts from the DREAMS store, who generously have a section upstairs of gifts with no group tag needed as well as a section of treats for their free group. All of tonight's looks are free for everyone, not just group members, and I would like to mention that there are some mens' goodies too so be sure to pass this information along to your favorite guys. There are gifts for all seasons too, with some winter sweaters and jackets for good measure. So much to see and appreciate!


    My first look is the DREAMS Stay At Home Outfit Woman, which is located with all the free gifts and is a cute hoodie and shorts combo. They each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh bodies, plus a fitmesh Medium for classic avatars. The buttons pinned to the hoodie are such a fun extra touch.


    Maybe you are in the mood for a playful denim dress? Then allow me to suggest their free gift called Ruby Mini Dress Jeans - FATPACK. Pick this up and you will receive fitmesh sizing for classic avatars (S, M, L) along with Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, and Voluptuous mesh body versions. There is also a HUD provided with 8 choices, so you can change up the color combination with just a click. Denim makes for such an attractive dress, and even more so with various tints.


    I combined two gifts here to create this look, and was very satisfied with the results. The top is the :::DREAMS::: Diya Shirt Jeans -BLUE- which pairs wonderfully with their Soraya Pants HUD 15 Colors. Each are free to all, and include fitmesh S, M, and L for classic avatars plus mesh body sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous. The pants, as the item name indicates, have a HUD included with 15 pretty colors to choose from, two of which I shared above. 


    Those versatile Soraya Pants also look wonderful with the two Valentine gifts I found. On the left I am wearing the :::DREAMS::: GIFT Valentine T-Shirt 2, with just Valentine T-Shirt on the right, both suitable for year round wear because love is eternal :) They each come in classic S, M, L sizes plus Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body versions. 


    For my final look of the evening, I chose their Charlotte Summer Outfit. I do love a good casual pairing, since I can run around the grid doing hunting or fishing or just exploring things with Xan while feeling cute and comfy. Our tied top and cutoff denim shorts are each included in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizing. There is also a HUD for each piece, offering 10 textures (a mix of solids and patterns) for the shirt and 6 shades for the shorts. There is something so classic about a nicely cuffed pair of high waisted jeans shorts, isn't there?

    Random makeup note: I was in the mood for a smokey eye, but not overly strong since my looks here are generally things I would wear for daytime. So I found a beautiful wearable tester (free demo) from alaskametro<3 for their "Fierce" eyeshadow, and chose the 60% opacity version for a little less intensity. It looks coppery or maybe a raspberry tint, and it was exactly what I wanted. There are many wearable demo/testers there, so you can try out these incredible creations and get a real feel for the quality. If you like what you see, the prices for the full packs are very reasonable, and are compatible with many different mesh heads as well as system/BOM layers (which I am wearing) that work on classic avatars too. 

    Whew, what a day! I am worn out from lack of sleep, a depressing hockey game, and an outing to my parents' for dinner. I have more DREAMS gifts to share in the near future, but I have something more time sensitive that I will be showing you tomorrow evening instead :) You will just have to visit again to find out what. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Moonstar Midnight and Luck

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a couple more hunt prizes from the Moonstar Birthday Hunt to share, along with a Midnight Mania prize from their Long Beach location and two lucky board prizes. It is a bonanza of free gifts, no group tag needed for any of them! All you need to do is locate the moonstar hunt objects, click the midnight mania boards and hope enough others do the same, and then get lucky with your initial showing up on the lucky boards. I enjoyed hanging out waiting for the boards to change to a D or wild card "?", and I do the same from time to time at their mainstore on the Shelter sim. 


    This free hunt prize called *V* Agatha Dress is definitely bound to turn heads. It has a pop of pink with a black floral print, with bold seams and fishnet trim. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body versions. There is also a pair of black lace panties provided, in a system/BOM layer and an Omega applier. 


    We definitely will be prepared for any occasion with all of these generous gifts, including a beach trip with their *V* Tropically Blue Swimsuit. There are two variations provided in this gift, the Seaweed on the left and Blue on the right above with some flowers blooming on the texture. Each come in 5 standard sizes plus 5 fitmesh standard sizes for classic avatars, with sizing for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. I like the way this style looks like a two piece from behind, but the front view shows that it is a flirty one piece. 


    Next we see one of the 2 Midnight Mania prizes currently available at this location, the Finnia Lace Jeans Set and Shoes by Moonstar. There are system/BOM layers and appliers for Lolas, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink of the top and jeans, with shoes sized for Maitreya and Slink High feet. The top is cleverly crafted to look like a short sleeved lace jacket that is buttoned high on the left collarbone area, over a strapless corset top. The jeans are accentuated with purple hearts on each back pocket, very cute!


    If you are feeling lucky, the 8 lucky boards on the main floor are the place to check. You can click if the first letter of your name comes up, to claim terrific prizes like this Blue Hearts Shorts Set and Necklace by Moonstar. The clothing comes in system/BOM layers along with appliers for Lolas, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink, with overalls style shorts whose straps actually connect to wrap behind the neck which leaves the back more bare. The shirt layered beneath is pulled up on one side a bit, but everything critical is still hidden ;) The heart theme can be found in the embroidery both front and rear of the overalls, as well as the pretty necklace that is included with a built in resize script. 


    For my final look this evening, I was fortunate to win this MESH Callie Lace Dress by Moonstar from another of the lucky boards. It has a striking combination of hot pink and black, with lots of beautiful details on the loose long sleeved t-shirt style dress. Win this gift and you will receive it in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. 

    It was a busy day with another brief power outage, so I am trying to get this post out to all of you as quickly as possible despite feeling like I have fallen way behind. I hope you are enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    More Marvelous Moonstar

    Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features more hunt prizes from Moonstar from their 12th Birthday Hunt, and these are from their Long Beach location. As you may have seen in my prior posts, they have 12 prizes hidden in each of their 2 stores, and they are all different so please do visit both :) There are midnight manias and lucky boards at each location also, that do not require their free group tag either, so they are generously showering us with all sorts of possible gifts. There is a large box (look for balloons) that you can click for a folder of information on the hunt, including a picture of the moonstar hunt object and both landmarks. Enjoy!


    I am a big fan of casual outfits that have some pizzazz to them, so I chose this gift to show off first. It is called *V* Susie Jeans Set, and wears as a single mesh piece that includes the tied top and cropped dark denim jeans. They come in 5 standard sizes and 5 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. With bold colors in the blouse but dark almost black of the jeans, you could choose just about any color of shoes to wear with these and it will look terrific.


    Next we get glitzy with the *V* Emerald Leopard Fringes Dress, a strapless mini with long luxurious fringe and lots of gold touches. There is a large leopard face embossed on the fringe in gold, then a pattern of smaller ones on the backdrop of lovely green that looks to be rippled like water. The prize includes standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions.


    This charming look is the *V* Sunflower Foxy Dress, whose name describes it perfectly. There are cute foxes sitting among rows of sunflowers, whose cheery yellow is mimicked in the ruffles and attached wide belt with bow. When you find this prize, you can claim it in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes, with a pair of white lace panties provided in a system/BOM layer and Omega applier. 


    Time to go casual again in this boho-flavored *V* Harmony Pants Set. The top and bag are linked into one piece while the pants are separate, so you could pair these differently if you choose. Each comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. The dainty floral pattern looks beautiful, especially on the stars of the bag and one pant leg.


    My final look of the evening is elegant with a touch of goth perhaps? The *V* Magenta Night Gown (not to be confused with a nightgown for sleeping in) is a richly colored full length gown with slight train, a simple halter style with dark tree branches silhouetted on the lower part of the skirt. It is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. This is an excellent choice for your next formal event, or just a date night at home when you want to impress.

    My day was mostly focused on hockey, and I quite enjoyed myself, even when a game turned into a real nail-biter at the end. It is still really hot here, so I am glad to be under the ceiling fan with a cool beverage :) I hope you are all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Moonbeams and Blossoms

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we continue the Moonstar birthday celebrations, as we visit their Long Beach store and take a look at some of the hunt prizes you can find there. They have 12 moonstars hidden there, a blue crescent moon with a star cradled in the inner curve, which is a nod to their name and logo. All you have to do is click each one you find, and you will receive a free prize for each. The store has multiple stories, so be sure to walk up those ramps in the back and check each floor :) There are also midnight mania boards and lucky boards on the main floor, no group tag needed, so you could wind up with well over a dozen fantastic free dresses or outfits from one visit. I realized that most of the gifts I am sharing tonight happen to have floral patterns, which inspired my title, and I hope you enjoy that as much as I do. 


    My first look this evening is the eye-catching *V* Serilda Dress, with daring cutouts and a beautiful wavy striped pattern. It is provided in sizes for classic avatars (standard S, M, L and fitmesh S, M, L) along with versions for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh bodies. There is also a black modesty butterfly (like panties but without the sides) in a system/BOM layer and an Omega applier. 


    The flirtatious prizes continue with this *V* Ginny Shorts and Top, linked together as a single mesh piece for easy wearing. It includes sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. The top resembles a sports bra, and the overall styled shorts, which are particularly high cut on the thighs, have such a pretty floral pattern on them.


    A great way to enjoy summer is in the water, either a pool or beach, and what better to wear than a bikini? Be sure to find the moonstar that holds this *V* Lila Bikini prize, in a tiny white floral pattern on purple with green trim. The top and bottom are each included in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. With all those choices, it should be easy to find one that fits your body and shape.


    Next we have the charming *V* Zinnia Dress, a long sundress with nearly detached sleeves that bare our shoulders to let that sun shine on them :) It comes in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The pattern puts me in mind of nature, always a good thing.


    My final look of the evening is another wonderful prize, the *V* Blue Floral Jumpsuit. All these flowers are reminding me that nature is still beautiful, and life is still continuing, so they are making me smile. This casually cute outfit includes the jumpsuit and separate golden belt, each in a fitmesh Medium for classic avatars plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body sizing. The cap sleeves and cropped pant legs make this nice for a breezy summer evening, right on into fall and beyond.

    It was an interesting evening in hockey, as the 4th longest game in NHL history took place, thanks to 5 overtime periods in addition to the 3 in regulation. They had to play until it was no longer tied, so the exhausted players continued. Neither was the team I follow, but I am paying attention to all playoff games :) My favorite team plays tomorrow evening, so I will be cheering them on very enthusiastically. Meanwhile I have more prizes from this hunt to show you, and a few other plans for upcoming blog posts that I am looking forward to. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Moonstar By The Sea

    Hiya everyone! Tonight is part 2 of the Moonstar Birthday Hunt, as we help them celebrate their 12th birthday in SL. They are holding 2 hunts, one in each of their locations, with 12 "moonstars" (a crescent moon with a star nestled into it) for you to locate and click, until September 15th. All of tonight's gifts can be found at the Shelter sim, the store they call Moonstar By The Sea, hence my post's title :) I have been shopping at Moonstar for most if not all of their 12 years, and am so happy for their accomplishments in staying so popular for over a decade!


    First we see the *V* Cafe Cats Dress, a chic dress whose black skirt, sleeve ruffles, and built in belt all bring out the cat shadows in the top's print beautifully. The prize includes sizes for classic avatars (standard M and fitmesh M) along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body sizing. There are also black lace panties included as a system/BOM layer and an Omega applier. 


    Next I slipped into the prize called *V* Addison Dress, a flirty mini in deep teal sequined pattern with plunging neckline. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, plus white lace panties in system/BOM layer and an Omega applier. 


    Another alluring hunt prize is this *V* Asta Dress, a star-studded navy mini dress with sequins at the hem and neckline. Our gift consists of the dress in standard sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, with a pair of lace panties in their usual system/BOM layer and Omega applier combination. The designer at Moonstar is very conscious of the need for both, and I do appreciate it.


    I am definitely feeling comfy and cuddly in this next prize, the *V* Moonstar Onesie. It is a pretty shade of pink, decorated with green stars, some of which are snuggling with a blue crescent moon, a fun nod to the hunt object and the store's logo. Standard mesh sizes are included, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing.


    My final look this evening is a formal one, the dazzling *V* Jacqueline Gown. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus a fitted version for classic avatars, along with sizing for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The striping on the bodice and the belt are particularly flattering of our curves, and those glittery stripes are gorgeous in the front and back leading into a brief train. Where will you show off your fancy new look? 

    It was an interesting day, as I tried something new in Animal Crossing (New Horizons) using a template I found online to create a new clothing design, pixel by pixel. Many mistakes were made, LOL, but I learned by trial and error...still giggling at how confused I got at several stages. In case you were wondering, I made a hockey jersey, and am planning something 'cuter' next time ;) There are plenty of people out there who have created much better clothing than I can, so I will mostly be enjoying their hard work with gratitude. I hope you are all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Moonstar Celebration

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I am excited to share that Moonstar is celebrating their 12th birthday as a popular provider of fashion in SL, and they are doing so with 2 free hunts. They have 2 locations, each of which have prizes hiding inside "moonstars" (a crescent moon and a star together) that you just have to click to receive a gift. I found 11 of the 12 at their Moonstar By The Sea location on the sim of Shelter, and I will be showing you a handful of those in tonight's post. I do remember their creations from my early days, and I am very pleased for them that they are still helping us look our best, from casual to formal and beyond. You have a little over a month to visit both stores and find these treats, as the celebration lasts until the 15th of September, so take your time and bring a friend for added fun. You can click a box on the front desk for a folder with information such as both landmarks and a photo of the hunt item you are looking for.


    My first look is the prize called *V* Poppies Jumpsuit, and I love the simplicity of the one piece outfit in such lovely colors. The prize includes both a classic and a fitmesh Medium version for classic avatars, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body sizing. The bold red poppies are perfectly matched by the tied straps, and the loose pants are a flattering contrast to the tight top.


    Please give this picture a click to see the *V* Aurene Gown in its proper size and in all its glory :) This prize reminds me of the pre-mesh days when our dresses were all system layer tops and glitch pants with a skirt of flexi panels, much like this but now we have appliers for mesh bodies as well. This gown has the upper and lower sections each in opaque (shown) and sheer versions, system/BOM layers and Omega appliers for each, meant to be worn beneath the long flexi skirt with built in resize script. The pearl necklace I am wearing is provided too, and it also has that handy resize script so you can adjust it with a click. This skirt really flutters and flows when walking or moving at all, it is quite a sight to behold!


    Next we have the *V* Toyah Dress prize, a beautiful retro style halter dress with contrasting bust and flared skirt. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizing, all with a bonus of black lace panties to wear beneath in system/BOM layer and Omega applier.


    If you find the moonstar that holds this prize, your summer can be just a bit sweeter :) It is called *V* Grapefruity Beach Dress, and the zigzag stripes are dotted with pink grapefruit slices. The style would work well as a coverup for a bikini, and has 2 large pockets in that sunny yellow-orange color. Our gift includes Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizes. 


    For my final look of the evening, I selected this playful *V* Rose Silk Dress prize. The dress has a laced up neckline and fishnet inserts on each side, above high cut thigh openings. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. Also included is a C-string, which is like panties but without the sides, which has a built in resizer script so you can create the fit you need. That is one of many things I have always appreciated about Moonstar - they do often provide accessories for their looks and many times they include panties or something for a bit of added modesty with skirts. 

    My day was a fairly calm and pleasant one, with delicious food from a new Australian vendor at the farmers market for dinner. I have my next few blog posts planned, which is always a relief, and I do not have any major plans in RL for this week other than watching playoff NHL hockey :) I hope all of you have a beautiful week ahead, with lots of magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Happy Birthday Hunt

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we enjoy some hunt prizes for the Happy Birthday Hunt, a $1L gridwide search for small green balloons. This image is on a flat prim, so not a round sphere shape but something that can hide fairly easily which is why the hints on the website are so helpful. That is also where you will find landmarks and some preview pictures, so you can tell what you will be claiming as your very affordable birthday gift :) I am a longtime fan of hunts in SL as a way to see what various stores have to offer and how they interpret the theme if there is one. It shows off the creativity of the designers in their particular style and skill set.


    The Sissy Bar has a cheery hunt prize for us with this (TSB) Happy Birthday Hunt High Waist Dress. It includes standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The brightly colored floral pattern looks lovely on the sleeveless top and pleated skirt that falls a bit above the knee.


    My next stop was MadCatCreations, where I located the tiny balloon which holds their charming Happy Birthday Hunt prize seen above. I was immediately drawn to the unique hem, slit up to the thigh on one side while draped down to tickle below the knee on the other. The multicolored blossoms of the fabric are terrific, as are the keyhole openings in the front and back of the bodice. This prize comes in sizes for Alice, Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.


    This soft yellow *WW* Lemon Sherbert Dress is the tasty treat from the balloon at Waffles. It is provided in standard mesh sizes along with versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The bow accentuates the birthday theme, like a present that is neatly decorated, and the color is delightful for summer.


    My final look of the evening comes from Cats n' Kittens Boutique, their sexy CnK: Frosting Set. It consists of the top, micro-panty (to cover the crotch but no straps) and peep toe boots, each sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The sugary pink texture is a fantastic choice for the birthday theme, but don't wait until your birthday/rezday to claim this since the hunt only lasts until the end of August ;)

    I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Third Life Treats

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I will be showing you some group gifts available for the Third Life group, which has a small $10L fee to join to keep us safe from spammers and scammers. There are many participating designers who have gifts set up at their stores for us, and I really enjoy visiting stores that are new to me or that I haven't stopped by in a while. This group has some impressive designers, as you will see :)


    My first look this evening comes from LRS Creations, their Diva Jumpsuit B. This skintight halter style jumpsuit includes system/BOM layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and TMP. So whether you're a classic avatar fan, or wear a mesh body that is BOM compatible, or are currently using appliers for your mesh body, there is an option for you. Speaking of options, there are 5 colors to choose from too...I am showing the Green on the left and Pink on the right, with the other colors being Black, Blue, and Red. The lace inset of the bodice is a sheer one, so be sure to keep that in mind when deciding where to wear this.


    This is certainly a different look for me, yet I am a fan! It is the gift from Brii Underground called Mirtes Punk Rock Style Complet Outfit, and it is very thorough with clothing and accessories. The sweater and skirt each come in 5 classic sizes and 5 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, as well as versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The gloves and pantyhose can each be found inside as system/BOM layers plus Omega appliers, and the aviator sunglasses and high top sneakers are unrigged with resize scripts built in so they are fully adjustable. It may be hard to read because of the lighting, but the back of the sweater reads "Rocker". There is even an Omega applier (not shown) of makeup, so you can even dress up your face to match if you wish.


    LEIGH has a seductive treat for us, their beautiful Desired Dress Sequins Gift. It is quite versatile, since it comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. Even more handy is the HUD provided, which has 2 colors plus buttons to adjust the transparency and glow. I added a bit of glow on the left (2%) to highlight those sequins, and added some transparency to the right. I highly recommend playing with these to find the look that suits you best.


    Let the sun shine with the Tayla Set from ToG Store! As you can see, it can be worn in a sunny yellow with 2 other options, as the included HUD has all 3 color choices for the top and/or skirt. Mix and match and have fun! The dress itself comes in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The tulip skirt makes me think of flowers blooming in spring and summer too. 


    My final look of the evening is the flirty T.B.O.M. Narat Black Casual Outfit Top&Skirt, which you can claim for free at The Best Of Me with that Third Life tag active. Each piece is included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, and the style is alluring with the barely closed blouse and extra short skirt with tiny side slit. 

    It was another stormy day, and somehow not even left over from the tropical storm. It is just going to be like this for a few weeks it seems, but as long as we don't get heavy winds it should be fine. Tomorrow I will have lots more food, thanks to the farmers market I enjoy each Saturday, which makes it less painful that all the food in my fridge had to be discarded from the power outage. It is important for me to look ahead rather than behind me of course, so that is what I am trying to do :) I hope you all have a terrific weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    The Gacha Life

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting The Gacha Life event, where you can find tempting featured sets of items inside a gacha machine that you pay a small amount to receive one of the items at random. Warning, they are addicting! ;) Also at the event, you will notice that nearly every participating designer has a group gift out for all members of The Gacha Life group, which is free to join, inside a black gift bag next to a framed image of the gift. The August round of this bimonthly event has a theme of Around The World, so you can imagine how diverse the selections are. I always make sure to visit, and I hope you have fun here as well.


    My first look is the group gift from GIULIADESIGN called LULES, a full outfit in white trimmed with racy red. The bustier, skirt, and socks/shoes combo are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. There are many details to appreciate here, like how the rear bow matches the back of the socks and the ones on the shoes, and those pretty buttons all the way down the seam of the sheer socks.


    This generous gift is also a full outfit, from AnaSTyle called Erya Zebrine. The exotic zebra print dress comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. Also included are the diadem (head piece), pearl necklace, left bracelet, right arm bracelet, and unrigged ankle chains, all of which can be adjusted to fit your personal shape. I really do appreciate having accessories provided like this, and did you notice that the bracelets have a built in glow?


    BLONDEQUEEN is offering this attractive BQ Sparkles Dress :: Roses as their Gacha Life group gift. The flirty styled mini with floral pattern comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing, and I think it is a flattering look for any size or shape.


    Next we celebrate summer with the gift from *SexyStyle*, their Bikini Sandra Silver. All the ties are trimmed with tassels, and that shine of the metallic fabric is just amazing! This gift includes the top and bottom separately, each in Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes.


    Sometimes our nails need to feel pretty too, so for my final look of the evening I present to you the SC Alice Nails Pink gift from Sorry Charlie. There are Maitreya and Slink versions, so all you need to do is hide the nails with your body's HUD and add these instead (right click - add). These long stiletto shaped nails have a glossy bubblegum pink color, and I am drawn to the fact that there is an elegance to their simplicity. Yes, I love intricate nail art, but I also appreciate variety including solid hues.

    It was a much better day today since I was home and had power, and I got to watch an exciting hockey game :) I don't need big fancy things to be happy, just the opportunity to relax and focus on something positive. I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Enchantress

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I am delighted to have power again, so I can bring you some group gifts this evening. We are visiting the Enchantress store, whose group is free to join and you can find an entire wall displaying gifts for that group. Some are mesh, but many are appliers for compatible bodies, and all are truly enchanting :) I have randomly chosen some to share from among the less revealing gifts, as a couple were extra eye-popping and I decided you should discover and try those on for yourself if you wish.


    My first look is their ![Enchantress] Ayame Dress Gift, a flirty strapless mini with opening in the front and short hemline, particularly in the rear. This gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a 10 color HUD so you can choose your favorite shade. I like the way the dots on the front are various sizes and layer over each other, reminding me of bubbles.


    Next we have their lovely Zelie Dress gift, another impressive treat for group members. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. The dress features a bold pattern of maroon and gold stars, with a plunging back beneath the halter neckline.


    Among the applier gifts, I think this Tilda Jeans Outfit is a fun choice for this time of year. It comes in two versions, Over (right) and Tuck (left), with HUDs for each that offer Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Brazilia compatibility. As a reminder, if you are wearing the updated Maitreya body you will need to add the clothing layer from the body's folder in your inventory, to use an applier.


    This gift is actually 11 great outfits in one, similar in style but each unique in color combination or fabric pattern. It is the group gift called Teagan Outfit, and includes 11 applier HUDs each numbered 1 to 11, and like the other HUDs tonight they have buttons for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Brazilia. I randomly chose two to wear here, so #3 is on the left and I am wearing #8 on the right. I love jeans in all colors, and appreciate the little details here like the buttons on the pant legs and the coordinated trim on the front pockets to match the breezy strapless tops. 


    For my final look of the evening, I chose the sexy Enchantress Oria Body gift. This satiny bodysuit is trimmed in intricate lace, and is included in 6 different colors each with its own applier HUD. I am wearing red on the left above with blue to the right (almost leaning towards purple in my lighting) while the other colors are black, green, pink, and white. These appliers have the same compatibility as their others. These are some very impressive gifts, and remember there are several I simply did not even have room to show you here. 

    Whew, what an adventure! Yesterday my home lost power in the early afternoon, but we have a generator so I should have been safe...however my housemate is in charge of making sure the generator has fuel and that it receives its usual maintenance, and that did not happen this year. The result was that after a few hours, it completely stopped working :( I was in the middle of editing these photos to get them ready, and I was chatting with Xan so I made him aware that it would probably happen. Many thanks to him for letting all of you know! Initially the power company estimated that it would take 2 days to restore electricity, so I was really lucky that they got it repaired a day early. It was extremely hot in here without fans or air conditioning, which made it difficult to sleep or get comfortable at all, and all the food in the fridge spoiled so I had nothing to eat until my parents kindly invited me for dinner. I could have just gone there to start with, but I was trying not to impose on them. Obviously there are many people who had it worse, as this hurricane/tropical storm (Isaias) did a lot of damage, so I am explaining rather than complaining. All I feel now is gratitude for being comfortable back home. I hope you are all having a peaceful and safe day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Elemental Desire Hunt

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we have some $1L hunt prizes to enjoy, from the current round of the Dirty Little Secrets hunt called Elemental Desire 3. The hunt object is pictured on the hunt's website, a grouping of 4 circles that each have an element (air, water, earth, fire) depicted on it. There is a $1L womens path, a $1L mens path, and a $25L path, so be sure to follow the hints to find the correct prize. The hunt runs until the 25th of the month, so you have plenty of time.


    My first look has me feeling provocative in pink! It is the prize from Uni Boutique called Loryne Dress - Pink, and it includes Altamura, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Tonic Curvy sizing. The lace-trimmed hemline is notably short, and I love the way the back is tied with a long floppy bow. 


    Next we visit Cats n' Kittens Boutique, where I was able to find their very generous prize. The Fire & Ice Set of Dresses includes both the Fire on the left above, and Ice on the right, each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. They have built in sheer skirt layers for a little more fullness, and a lovely X strap in the front that loops around the neck. 


    Many hunt paths lead us to The Sissy Bar, a store whose name comes from the term for a part of a motorcycle which makes sense with the store being located near a motorcycle club :) This is their terrific DLS/EDH Tied Top & Booty Shorts outfit, with a delicate floral pattern on the top that looks lovely paired with the solid grey of the fluttery shorts. This prize is flirty without being overly revealing, which is precisely my style.


    The prize from LOMO by [ IBAN ] is loaded with sex appeal too, as you can see...it is called 281 Dress Paisley Club, and consists of the dress (top), skirt, and chain each in sizes for Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya. There is also a HUD provided with 17 texture choices (10 patterned and 7 solid colors) for the top piece and the skirt. It also has buttons that my poor eyesight could not read very well, LOL, but seemed to be to adjust the transparency of the fabric. I accidentally made the top invisible at one point, which should teach me a lesson not to randomly click buttons that I cannot read ;) Small print, especially light words on a dark background, is my downfall with my particular vision problems, but I can certainly see how lovely this dress is!


    My final look of the evening honors two elements, fire and water. They are the Dragonmoon Designs prize called [DD] Elements Top, a long sleeved blouse tied in the front for a belly baring look. Each color comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, so most mesh or classic avatars can find a size to fit them. I am wearing it with some free jeans from Delizio found on the marketplace, the white pair out of their fatpack that includes system/BOM layers plus Maitreya and Omega appliers. They are frequently seen in my posts as a versatile way to share tops with you that have no included bottoms.

    I hope you are all having a nice day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Treats from TRS

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to help you get ready for a summer adventure with some new bikinis (and a fancy dress for that hot club by the beach!) which are all either group gifts or Midnight Mania prizes. They are all found at TRS Designs, so we are only visiting one store for this sexy summer collection. You do not need their free group tag to click the midnight mania boards, but you will to claim the group gifts, and there are also lucky chairs and gifts for various other groups on the same wall. Can you tell there is a lot to see and appreciate here? I am a longtime group member and frequent visitor to the store, so it is my pleasure to introduce you to them or remind you to stop by again if you too have been here before.


    My first look is one of the 3 group gifts currently available, called Stella Dress SVG. It is a glitzy mini trimmed in gold sequins, with straps that cross in the back then drape down the front to cross again and tie beneath the bust. Our gift includes standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions. Get used to that set of sizes, because all of tonight's looks include the same ones :)


    Summer brings many activities to mind, and if you are thinking about things like sunbathing, swimming, beaches, or pools, I think you'll enjoy this group gift. It is their Lyla Bikini RP, and is certainly on the revealing side with tiny triangles of material in the front and even less in the back ;) There is a delicate golden floral pattern on the fabric, such a pretty addition.


    For this look, I doubled my fun to show you two more group gifts. On the left is the Lyla Bikini Bubblegum, with Lyla Bikini VP on the right. These are the same sassy style as the first one I showed you, with the same set of sizes (standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine) as all of tonight's gifts and prizes. I love the sheen of the pink fabric, and the gold floral pattern on the VP version.


    My avi appears to be lost in thought here, quite possibly trying to decide where to wear this gorgeous group gift :) That's right, another generous bikini gift, this one called Lyla Bikini NR. I want to guess that the NR stands for navy red, with both colors making an appearance here, and the material has that tiny pattern of flowers embossed in gold that I enjoy so much.


    I had also visited the day before yesterday in anticipation of this post, and had clicked the Midnight Mania boards while I was there, so I had already received these two terrific prizes :) They are both Lyla Bikinis, with Ocean on the left and BR to the right. Whatever your favorite colors may be, you can probably find it among this bevy of beautiful free swimsuit choices at TRS Designs.

    It was an exciting day to watch ice hockey, LOL, as weird as that sounds in the midst of a heat wave. Other than that, my day was decent and I am ready for a brand new week. I have a few things planned, an RL appointment and a few SL ideas for blogging :) I hope you are all having a relaxing day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Free Is Fabulous

    Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features some of the many group gifts available for the FabFree in SL group, which is the inworld presence of the Fabulously Free in SL blog that I have been faithfully following for all of my time in SL. There is an abundance of participating designers who keep us up to date on sales, events, and special offers as well as those generous gifts for anyone wearing the free group tag. It seems like there are new gifts added all the time to that ever-expanding list, so FabFree is certainly worthy of one of our precious group slots, as it has been among mine. 


    Mermaid hair, don't care! This playful Mermaid Outfit is the FabFree gift from Grumble, and the top says precisely how I began this description, with a tail at the end of the D of mermaid and a starfish after the word hair. The top and shorts each come in sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with an extra Isis version for the shorts. Speaking of those shorts, please take a good look so you can see the glamorous unicorn mermaids on the pattern, with long flowing rainbow hair.


    I do like to wrap myself in denim from time to time, so this Baci gift called Spring Jeans is greatly appreciated. It is exclusively for the FabFree group, so if you like what you see, there is only one way to get a hold of it. Pop on your group tag and give the sign a click, to receive the tied top and wrapped skirt in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The Baci store is located on The Wash sim, home to the Sun-Sational Summer cart sale which is still taking place, so I also suggest taking a walk outside to visit that if you have not yet.


    Next I visited MOoH! where I happily claimed this Lizzy dress as the FabFree group gift. It includes sizes for eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and even a standard fitmesh version for classic avatars. There is also a HUD provided with 6 choices, various patterns for the skirt that have coordinated solids for the top and trim. I enjoy the apron style of this dress, and since it is very revealing on the sides I would even suggest that for a bit more modesty you could layer a t-shirt beneath if you prefer. 


    This flirty gift comes from Tiar, and can be found in their FREE room with many other groups' gifts and all sorts of affordable treats. This dress is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Signature mesh bodies. The elegance of the solid black would look amazing with your favorite jewelry, whether that is a single metallic color or some bold colored gems, whatever makes you happy.


    My final look this evening is the Northern Sky Creations gift called NSC Navy Top, a tube top with ruffle in nautical colors and pattern. This is the perfect season to wear it, whether you are going sailing in SL or just hanging out with friends somewhere warm. The gift includes sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. I paired it with the white jeans from the Delizio marketplace gift that appears here on my blog frequently, a fatpack of various colors of jeans in system/BOM layers along with Maitreya and Omega appliers. 

    I cannot decide if I want to visit a beach later in SL, or cool down at a ski resort with lots of snow and fluffy clouds. It was another hot day here, but I have some tasty meals from the farmers market and I am looking forward to a playoff hockey game tomorrow afternoon. I really never expected to be watching hockey in August, but this year has decided to be a wild one so I am just trying to go with the flow :) I hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Around The Grid Hunt

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a look at some of the dozens of $1L prizes available through the Around The Grid in 80 Days 8 Hunt. They are hiding inside clusters of palm trees, as a trio of them serves as the hunt object this round. You can also purchase the prize for $25L from the hunt object on or very near the sign if you prefer not to hunt, and it is nice to have that option available. The hunt runs for 80 days and started a couple of weeks ago, so you have until the end of September to find whichever prizes catch your eye. You can use the hints from their website to guide you, and that is also where you will find the landmarks to go from store to store. 


    This first look caught my attention because of my love of birds, especially parrots. It is the female prize from Georg Bellic Design, and I specified that since there is a male prize included in the same cluster of palm trees :) This is their Sandy Dress, and she comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The cutouts on the sides are a great detail, and so are the unique straps of the back.


    Atlantis Design's palm trees hold two versions of this delightful Dotty 1 dress, with and without the dot pattern on the top. Each version is provided in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes. The deep color really makes the folds of the skirt stand out, and I love the high-low hemline.


    Sunflowers create such a cheerful look, even with this image being just half of a very large bloom :) This is the prize from Sweet E's called Purple Sunflower Tessa Dress, and it is trimmed in wide golden lace which adds to the regal nature. Find their palm trees and you will be able to claim this in sizes for Altamura, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Star, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies.


    Next we have a charming skirt set from Heavenly Creations, their Denee White Outfit. The tank top and wrap skirt each come in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP body versions. The silvery trim on all the edges adds interest, and the pink butterflies and blossoms help to make this set extra appealing.


    For my final look this evening, I am enjoying the prize from +Uni Boutique+ which is their Romper - Purple with a fun bonus. The romper is provided in sizing for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and the Traveling Nerd Purse I am holding in my left hand is also included. Isn't it cute? The bow made me think of Hello Kitty, and I love the details like the glasses-shaped zipper pull dangling from the side opposite the bow.

    It is time to celebrate the weekend and a new month, and I am so excited about both! There are some new hunts starting, and each month brings fresh rounds of various monthly events with all sorts of terrific offers. Meanwhile, I wish you all a wonderful weekend, with lots of magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Stylish at Home

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a look at a few more gifts for the Stay at Home Club, since there are still plenty available with no group tag required and for absolutely free. It warms my heart to know that these designers are willing to offer such generous selections to cheer us up during these troubled times, and I appreciate each and every one of them. There are various categories on their website, so be sure to check to see if you are interested in any of those besides the Apparel I am sharing :) 


    MI.CO has a versatile gift for us, their long sundress called Summer Rose. The dress comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh bodies, with a 10 color HUD. I love having so many options!


    If you desire a more formal gift, how about this beauty from [Wildfloverr Design]? It is called Rose Sexy Gown Dress Rose, and comes in a vibrant pink color in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The dramatic slit in the front reveals just enough leg, while the keyhole opening in the back and cleavage-baring neckline show off some skin too. The store also seems to be known as Wild Design, so you might see it referred to as either on the landmark or packaging.


    Next we have a cleverly designed outfit from AlaFolie called Veronique, which is actually their 4th Stay at Home Club gift :) I have blogged others, some of which are still available if you missed them when I first posted those. Meanwhile, Veronique here includes the top, skirt, and waist band (labeled buste, ceinture, and jupe) in standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Slink Physique, and Tonic Fine versions, with panties (culottes) in a system/BOM layer. I wore all the components on the left, and took the waist band section off on the right so you could get a peek of how it looks as a two piece. 


    There is something so alluring about red leather, then adding a leopard patterned belt just takes this look over the top! It is our gift from oneKingdom called Buckle Belt Bodysuit, and all I can say is WOW. You can claim this treat in Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, so it can hug your curves too.


    For my final look of the evening, I shimmied into the gift from GeMyles (at their new location), their Chemise Dress & Heels. The heels mentioned are for Slink feet and I am sporting my Maitreya body/hands/feet, so those had to stay in the folder unworn for now. That's okay though, I am loving this dress! It comes in fitmesh standard sizes for classic avatars, as well as versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. There is also a color HUD with 32 choices, most of which have a metallic sheen as you may have noticed above. Each button on the HUD will tint the dress and shoes at the same time. 

    I am glad that the weekend is almost here, and the new month with rounds of hunts and events that start up again. I do still feel like this week is taking too long, as time moves so slowly lately. I hope you are all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Lost In Emotion

    Hiya everyone! Tonight we are exploring the shopping district for three events all organized by Media-SL.com, whose free group tag will also allow you to claim many group gifts. There are areas for the LOOK Event, VERSUS Event, and Last Chance Event, and each set of stores outside the events has signs in front of most of the doorways that you can click to receive a special gift. I enjoyed walking around the various areas and seeing what everyone is selling, so the gifts are a nice bonus. My title should tell you that I am listening to random 80s music as usual ;) 


    First we have a sexy gown that you can claim just inside the doorway of the LOOK event, simply called Group GIFT LOOK EVENT 3. There is no landmark inside so it is not clear who designed it, but I am grateful to whoever it is :) The gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing.


    From formal to casual, next we have the playful Spring 2020 Gift from Abigail's. It consists of their Gabrielle top in Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya sizes, paired with Megan pants in sizing for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. I can easily envision wearing this while hopping around the grid while hunting or maybe fishing, just generally enjoying SL.


    This treat comes from Phoenix, and is their Twisted Minidress Maitreya. Based on that, I am sure you can guess what mesh body it fits ;) It includes a HUD with 6 embossed texture choices on a black background. They all look terrific on the tank style dress with its daring thigh slit.


    I am also very impressed with the group gift from LOODS7, who are new to me so I am pleased to "meet" them :) This is their skull dress blue, and when you click the sign outside their store you will receive this in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. That royal shade of blue looks lovely with the black lace overlay and trim, doesn't it?


    My final look of the evening is a stunning strapless mini from Selene Creations called Capucine Olive. The back may be a solid sheath of satin, but the front is crisscrossed satin above sheer lace in all the right places. Our gift includes sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Signature Alice bodies. Just add your favorite shoes, and you are all set to head anywhere in sexy style.

    This week has felt really long for some reason, not necessarily in a bad way but just like time is moving slowly. Maybe I am just eager for the new month to start, so I can enjoy some new rounds of events and hunts and such :) I hope you are all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Mangula Gifts

    Hiya everyone! For all of tonight's looks, we visit Mangula who have several gifts available for their subscribers at the moment. No group tag needed, just accept to receive their subscriber notices and you will be able to claim lots of generous gifts. I enjoy their general style, with coordinated outfits that have plenty of HUDs to adjust colors on components of the clothing. Versatility will always catch my attention in a very good way, and this store tends to have a lot of items for sale (such as for the Saturday Sale) so you can load up your wardrobe even on a budget. All of their clothing comes in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies unless otherwise noted.


    This first set is their gift called Mangula Violet Set & Heels [MEGA PACK], and it does indeed have a full range of colors and options for us. The long dress, short dress, a matching top (not shown) and sleeves are each provided in their usual sizes as mentioned above, with a HUD to choose from 20 colors each for the dresses, top, sleeves, panties, and ties for the back. Our heels include a HUD with the same 20 colors to choose from, for the boot (back of shoe, the part that is blue on the right to match the short dress), heel, and rope which would be the straps across the foot. You can get really creative here, and it is great to have the option of a more formal long gown or a flirty mini, with or without the sleeves.


    I am about to show my age here, LOL, but trying on this Mangula Summer Party Set - [GRAN PACK] immediately gave me 80s Madonna vibes! We have a sheer dress with star pattern plus a top, panties, and bodysuit for layering beneath, all with a HUD to choose from 32 colors for each piece plus the belt (attached to the dress) and tie on the front of the panties, plus 6 metals for the belt. Then we can unpack the footwear, which consists of rugged high heeled boots and fishnet socks with a 32 color HUD to tint 4 parts of the boots along with sole, rope, and socks. I had a lot of fun playing with these HUDs, and wore the boots without the socks on the right to show that they look just as good without as with. On the left I layered the top and panties beneath our see-through dress, while on the right you can see the bodysuit peeking through the sheer fabric.


    Time to look pretty in pink, with the gift called Mangula Sara Set Top, Short [Rose]. The top comes in a sleeveless version as well as the one I am wearing on the right above with detached looking sleeves, and the high waisted shorts are a perfect match. The HUD included offers 20 colors each for the lace on the top and shorts, and 6 metals each for the zipper and its zipper pull. I really like the style of this outfit, flirty but still appropriate to wear anywhere.


    I tend to think about clothing as formal or casual, flirty or modest, and public wear or private wear...and we deserve to have lots of selections in our inventories of all categories. So be sure to pick up this private wear treat, the Mangula Angela Set Lingerie, for those times when the dress code is intimate. The bra, panties, corset, and garter belt are all included in their usual sizing (eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya) for those popular mesh bodies. The pearly white shade is lovely, and the lace is quite sheer so I found just the right pose to display the outfit without showing off too much ;) 


    For my final look of the night, I claimed this sweet subscriber gift called Mangula Amelia Set Sweater & Dress [Barrio 1]. It is a single layered piece with the appearance of a sweater over a shirt dress, and comes in their usual set of sizes. There is also a HUD provided with 20 color selections each for the skirt, buttons, and fly. I chose a pink that matches the top for the buttons on the left, but other great options are to blend them in with whatever skirt color you pick, or a silver or gold to mimic metal. 

    It was an unusual day since I had a hockey game to watch finally, something you do not expect to happen in this kind of heat. It was an exhibition game, just to get the players used to being on the ice again probably, then the actual playoffs start this weekend. The team I root for won, so I am happy about that of course, and it was heartwarming to see the players doing what they love. I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Waiting For a Star To Fall

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some Stay at Home Club gifts to share from very generous designers. These particular stores have multiple gifts for us, so we are only visiting two locations for all of these looks :) It is so thoughtful of all the participants to brighten our SL days with gifts while encouraging us to remain safe during these uncertain times, and I am comforted by knowing there are so many caring people out there. I went random with the title tonight, an 80s song that I heard while trying to come up with a title. 


    First we visit VERTIGO, where there is a Stay at Home Club gift outside the front door and two more inside the store. This one is called Sarita Minijumper, and is linked together to wear as one piece with the look of a cropped tank and short overalls. It includes sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. 


    More flirty shorts for the summer! This is their Ursula Outfit gift, whose top and shorts each come in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. The tiny polka dots on the silky top really caught my eye, and the shorts have the cutest little zipper in the back with dainty buttons on the front.


    This gift is from VERTIGO too, and is called *Mysteria* Peace and love lingerie set. The bra and thong style panties are each provided in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP body versions. The words on the pattern include love, peace, and flower power, so that is right up my alley!


    Our other stop this evening is called Sinful Delights, and one of their terrific gifts is this Comic Nit Dress. It has a playful pattern with action words like BAM and POW, and the style has revealing features like the plunging back that shows a tiny hint of bum cleavage. Our gift contains sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. To claim this gift, please pay the vendor $1L and you will be automatically refunded. 


    My final look of the evening is comprised of 3 generous Sinful Delights gifts for the Stay at Home Club, all of which can be worn together or mixed with anything you wish. These also have vendors that you will need to pay $1L to receive the gifts, but it will be promptly refunded while the gift is delivered. The top is our Galaxy Tank Top gift, and the matching loose-fitting cuffed pants are called Galaxy Pants. Each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The dazzling tiptoe sneakers are the Galaxy Sneakers gift, in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet, with the same texture on the body as the clothing but with color variations on the tongue and laces. The studs and loose laces really add to the fun of this style, and part of me wants to wear them with everything! 

    It was a calm, almost dull day here, although very hot outside so I am glad to have a ceiling fan keeping me comfortable. I had a very strange dream, then one that was about hockey which I expect is because the NHL is resuming the season very soon. I am equal parts excited and nervous about it, as I miss it but am concerned for the health of all the players/staff and their families. We have someone on the official roster who just completed cancer treatment a few weeks ago, and I am downright terrified for him. One of his teammates is still wearing a hospital bracelet as a keepsake from his wife giving birth a few days ago to their first child, so that is his inspiration but also a reason to be extra careful. This has just been such a wild in so many ways! I hope you are all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Enticed by Fitmesh

    Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some group gifts to share, and a special time-limited offer to tempt you with. The gifts are for the Fitmesh Fanatics group, which is free to join and has many participating designers who post information about sales and events, in addition to having a gift for the Fitmesh Fanatics group at their mainstores. Most of these gifts are geared towards mesh bodies, which honestly can be said about most stores these days since the mesh avatars are so popular. Then we head to Entice for their Saturday Sale selections, as they keep their offers available for most of the week. You can start your week by treating yourself to something affordable as well as adorable.


    My first visit was AMUI, where among their plentiful group gifts is this treat for Fitmesh Fanatics, called GG - 01- 001. The top and skirt each come in a standard fitted version, plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. The lace overlay is beautiful, just like the satin trim and ruffles.


    I hope you like some revealing gifts too! This is the T.B.O.M. Cassie Violet Lace Sexy Mini Dress, from The Best Of Me, and it has plenty of sheer areas that even caused me to use a "modesty flower" in photoshop to obscure a nipple. The gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.


    Our gift from Lara AC is their Swimsuit Teal Blue, a fantastic nod to summer or just to enjoy while visiting a tropical sim any time of year. For a one-piece it is fairly flirty, with those long openings for the arms and high cut thighs, and the loose fit. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies.


    Always Design has a seductive gift for the Fitmesh Fanatics group too, their Toya Dress with its open sides and transparent section all the way down the front. The gift consists of sizes for Alice, Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Star, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. As you can guess, there is also a HUD included with 12 colors to choose from, so you can tint this to match your mood or just pick your favorite color.


    Speaking of favorite colors, my final look of the evening happens to be in one of mine :) This is the Entice - New Attitude Top - Pink, paired with their New Attitude Skirt - Pink, each of which are just $50L apiece until the 30th. Both come in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing, with such pretty lace trim and a playful peekaboo style in the back of the top with a slit from the closure all the way down. If pink is not your thing but you appreciate this style, you will be happy to know that the other colors are discounted right now as well...8 individual choices of each piece for $150L (regularly $200L each) or the fatpacks for top or skirt at $450L which is marked down from $599L. The fatpack includes 2 bonus colors for a total of 10 options via HUD, so it really is a remarkable deal. Personally I like the ability to mix and match, so HUDs will always be my go-to anytime they are available, and the idea of having 10 colors for the price of 3 is a winner in my mind.

    I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend, and are ready for an exciting new week ahead. Many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Home Sweet Home

    Hiya everyone! Tonight's post has several Stay at Home Club gifts for your consideration, as I am spending my weekend at home so it seems appropriate. Since we can still safely go anywhere we wish in SL, it is helpful to have fresh new outfits to wear as we explore and spend time with friends. These are all completely free, no group membership needed, just to help boost our moods as we cope with stressful times in RL. I am still wearing one of these tonight, and will be slipping into a different one tomorrow for whatever my Sunday grid time holds.


    My first look is the Stay at Home Club gift from Twisted Princess, the flirty TP-Flamingo Dress. It consists of the main part of the dress as well as separate top and bottom ruffles, each sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. I am always drawn to birds of any kind, and most flowers, so this texture is perfect for me.


    If you are looking for a versatile bodysuit, look no further than the gift from Blossom&Seeds. It is called San Francisco, and it is provided in sizes for Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies. There is also a HUD included, offering 12 choices that consist of 8 different patterns and 4 solid colors. It is so handy to be able to change the look with just a quick click :)


    Another outfit that includes a helpful HUD is this gift from Freda called Stacy Set 6. The wrapped top and mini skirt each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, with a HUD offering 6 textures for each. As you can see above, there are two types of patterns (the ornate one on the left, the leaves on the right) and there are 3 colors choices of each. You can also tell on the right that the top and skirt can change individually, so feel free to get creative with your look here.


    Next we visit [MH] Couture, where the Stay at Home Club gift is their Tami Grey Floral romper. This outfit has the sweetness of scalloped lace and flowers, toned by the edgy nature of the dark colors for a terrific combination. It includes fitmesh standard sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. 


    My final look of the evening is the Ginny Square Red dress from [EvelineInTheBox], a beautiful gift that I am still wearing in SL as I type this :) It comes in standard mesh sizes plus a fitted version for classic avatars, and for mesh bodies we have Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. I was drawn to the bold pattern and the red blending into purple coloring, and the way the straps on the back resemble a star. The sleeveless style is ideal for this time of year, and it's nice to have a dress that is flattering without being skin tight.

    Whew, what a long day! I usually sleep with CBD lotion on my hands, and I think I must have had something in my eye while I slept because I woke up with a very irritated, red eye that made me wonder if I had been touching it in my sleep. I rinsed it with cold water and it is still a bit tender, but looks considerably better so I am relieved about that. I wear extended wear contact lenses that are designed to be slept in, so at first I thought maybe the lens tore or something, like maybe I had been rubbing my eyelid. Otherwise it was a fine day, and I have my food from the farmers market so there are tasty noms in my near future. Meanwhile I hope you are all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
