    Redeux Part Deux

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to invite you again to the Redeux 4th anniversary celebration, where the designers are offering group gifts for the event's group which is free to join. I am always so happy for any event or store that reaches a milestone like this, since I can only imagine all the hard work and planning that goes into them. We get to benefit by having a chance to purchase some really amazing items, and now free treats to boot :) The weekend might make it a little more crowded there, but it is only open until the 21st so I hope you get to stop by very soon.


    My first look is the fun Luas Dara Top Grey, a flirty short sleeved blouse in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite mesh bodies. I love the way the front is tied gently in place, so the neckline hugs the cleavage. As I did yesterday, when I needed a 'bottom' to wear with a top I reached for the Delizio marketplace gift that appears here fairly often. Who can resist several colors of jeans in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega, all for free?


    Another alluring gift is the Adriana bikini - White by AURORA. This seductive two piece comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with a HUD that offers 12 colors each in 4 different wording options for the straps. Those are Bad Girl, Dirty Princess (left above), Daddy's Girl, and Queen (right) with crowns between the words. Which one suits your mood?


    This gift has appeal for those learning to be designers as well as anyone who just enjoys wearing cute casual dresses. It is the FLECHA Riana Fitted Dress Fullperm, and each size (eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique) includes Green, Red, and Black (not shown) versions as well as the blank slate on which you can add a texture or color of your choice. There are also notecards and maps tucked inside to guide you with customizing it.


    My final look this evening is the Gabrielle Fat Pack from AtaMe, a pairing of bra and high waisted pants with boots attached. Each is provided in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies, with a HUD that offers 4 floral patterns and the ability to turn brightness off or on. The flowers are ideal for spring, and it makes things so much easier to not have to find a separate pair of matching shoes for your outfit :) This is also a flirty alternative for those who find themselves almost always wearing skirts, since variety is the spice of (second) life. 

    Happy Weekend! It was certainly a strange week here, but I am doing okay and glad that the weekend is finally here. I will be going to my usual farmers market tomorrow morning, then watching a hockey game in the early afternoon, but no major plans for Sunday. I am taking tomorrow evening off from blogging, but I'll be back Sunday night with some more Free Dove hunt prizes since I interrupted those for the event with the sooner ending time. I hope you all have something nice planned this weekend, whether that means going out or staying home and relaxing. Many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Happy Anniversary Redeux

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are headed to Redeux for their 4th anniversary celebration. This round is only a week long and opened on the 14th, so we have until the 21st to visit and claim some terrific group gifts from almost every participating designer. It is a very popular way to celebrate anniversaries or birthdays of events, and one I greatly appreciate as an extra incentive to stop by and do some shopping. The group is free to join, so these treats I am sharing tonight are all absolutely free!


    Our gift from zOOm is called Wild Girl Dress, and it lives up to its name with bared shoulders and a bold scale pattern. The gift includes the bra and dress each in Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes, and since they are separate pieces you can go even more wild and wear the dress without the bra if you wish. There is also a HUD provided with 6 color options, one of which being the eye-catching ombre seen on the right above. 


    This charming look is the Emilia Set Gift from {le fil casse} in a beautiful peach sherbet coloring. The top and skirt are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies. I can't decide which is my favorite feature, the wash of peach to lavender or the feminine frills and bows. 


    Next I changed into the gift from Blue Flower, their Falling Leaves Top - Pink. This cropped and tied cutie comes in Freya, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite sizing, with a HUD to choose from print or solid for the main shirt and from among 15 colors for the accents. I certainly had fun experimenting with the HUD to find a look that suited my mood.


    Tiar has both male and female gifts for us, which coordinate nicely with each other while providing a positive individual message too. This is their Queen shirt (yes, the guys' goodie says King) which is provided in Freya, Isis, Kupra, Legacy, Legacy Petite, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Hourglass, and Hourglass Petite sizing. I have paired this and the previous gift with my favorite jeans that happen to be a marketplace freebie from Delizio. It includes several colors of jeans (this is the blue) in system/BOM layers as well as appliers for Maitreya and Omega. 


    For my final look of the evening, I am wearing the Aisha XoXo gift from Faida. This daring dress has such bold slits on each side that it is more like a front and back panel, held together by a pretty gold chain belt. It includes sizes for Legacy and Maitreya mesh bodies. The heart pattern adds romance to the sex appeal of the style. 

    It was a busy day since my parents needed our usual Friday dinner to happen tonight (Thursday) instead, thanks to my dad's changing radiation schedule. The only side effect he experiences is tiredness, so as long as it does what it's supposed to do I would say it is worth it. I am still a bit worn out from my second dose, but getting a little better each day. My hockey team finally remembered how to win a game, LOL, and a new player looked very promising. Tomorrow I have more Redeux gifts to show you, then I will return to the Free Dove hunts that I started sharing yesterday :) I am glad I got the group notice that let me know about the Redeux event with just enough time to pass the info along to all of you, while displaying a handful or two of the generous gifts. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Stars Fashion at The Free Dove

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features some Free Dove mini hunt prizes, which also makes me want to take the opportunity to say again how thrilled I am that The Free Dove has monthly mini hunts again! :) This month we have two, from *Stars*Fashion* and Paper.Sparrow, each with 5 free prizes at The Free Dove and 5 at their respective main stores. I am starting with Stars Fashion, whose hunt prizes are hiding inside small giftboxes that looked black in the sample photo from the notecard from the hunt sign but looked light grey in person on my screen. They have gold ribbons on them and a dusting of gold stars, so they are really pretty! You will need your free "Blessed by a Dove" group tag from The Free Dove's group to claim them, so please have that active and give each one a click. All of tonight's looks are found at The Free Dove. 


    My first look is the *Stars*Fashion* Danika outfit, and like all of tonight's prizes it is very versatile. The top and pants each come in sizes for Altamura Sofia, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. There is also a HUD included with 10 color choices each for the top and pants, so you can mix and match to your heart's content. The pants have that classic jeans styling, while the top has a unique double strap on just the one side. 


    Another charming outfit is the *Stars*Fashion* Alaina prize, with similar jeans styled pants and a tied short sleeve blouse. These are each provided in Freya, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, with a HUD to choose from 20 patterns for the top and 20 colors for the pants. The top's options are all plaids in various hues, and the pants have a subtle spongy texture that reminds me of clouds. 


    For a little Boho fringe fun, be sure to find the giftbox that contains this prize called *Stars*Fashion* Beth. The top comes in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The super short skirt has a similar set of sizes: eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is also a HUD as you can guess, with 20 great color choices for each piece. I had a lot of fun clicking all the buttons to see what combinations appealed to me, and when there are this many wonderful choices it is hard to narrow down a favorite.


    Next I changed into the *Stars*Fashion* Niki skirt set, a pairing of sweetheart tube top with detached sleeves and a laced up mini skirt, each with ruffled trim. They are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with a HUD that has 20 color choices for each as well as 2 (black or white) for each ruffle. We apply the main color first, then if we want to change the ruffle we click either the black or white button if desired. I gave the white ruffle buttons both a click on the left above, but on the right all I did was choose the main color for each and left the ruffles their matching hue. 


    For my final look of the evening, I am enjoying the *Stars*Fashion* Carla hunt prize. Its zippered tank top includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies, while the matching zippered skirt comes in 3 standard sizes (S, M, L) as well as Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. The handy HUD has 10 color choices for each, so you can mix and match this outfit too. Some days I will be inclined to bring the variety, while others I am picking a pink or purple (my personal favorites) and sticking with them :) It all depends on a mood or your own personal preference. 

    Things are slowly improving here, for example my arm is not as sore as it was yesterday. I still have headaches that may not even be related, and my neuropathy is still acting up quite a bit, although I did get some rest and I think that will continue to help. I am eager to share more Free Dove hunt prizes in my next couple of posts, and there are certainly other April events and hunts for us to explore along the way as well. Lots to look forward to, and that keeps me feeling positive. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    TO.KISKI Group Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the TO.KISKI store, to claim several fantastic group gifts for their free group. I was very impressed by their quality, so I am pleased to share some of their offerings with all of you. 


    First I slipped into their TO.KISKI - Francis Mini Dress / Black, a satin mini with a solid back but lace front with twists of satin across it. The gift includes sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Signature Alice, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. 


    This ruby colored slip dress is the TO.KISKI - Eva Dress - Red group gift. It comes in eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. The sides are slit quite high and tied with delicate bows to hold them together, and I enjoy the lace overlay on the bodice. 


    For some flirty lingerie, you will want to claim this lovely TO.KISKI - Megan Lingerie Lila. The romper has spaghetti straps and high cut thighs, with a gathered waist decorated with a beautiful bow in the front. The neckline dips down almost all the way that bow! The gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. I am very impressed by the texturing here, particularly the lace. 


    These two gifts are the same design of dress but different colors, so I paired them for one look to show you even more treats in the same post :) On the left is TO.KISKI - Ludmila Party Dress / Sky while the right is the same in Red. They both have luxurious sequin textures and crossed straps that tie behind the neck to create a halter style. Each color comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. 


    For my final look of the evening, I changed into the TO.KISKI - Luna Mini Dress - Violet group gift. It consists of Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with the top and skirt connected by beaded straps. There is considerable bare skin, yet everything vital is covered up so it is safe to wear almost everywhere. 

    Whew, it has been quite an adventure the past two days! I got dose #2 yesterday afternoon, and wound up with the expected sore arm like dose #1 plus some extra bonus side effects. My stomach is not happy, and I've been really exhausted, feeling warm and achy (head and joints), and unfortunately it seems to be activating a pre-existing condition. I have neuropathy that mostly causes pain and tingling in my hands and feet, and boy oh boy, this is the worst flare I have ever had. Two other people I know who had their 2nd doses within a couple days of mine had very little trouble at all, just the typical arm discomfort, but both are guys and one kindly pointed out that he read from several reliable sources that women get worse side effects. Yay. I would still rather deal with this for a few days than the alternative of catching or spreading the dreaded illness. Depending how I feel tomorrow, I might try to get even more rest and take another day off, but I wanted to check in and let everyone know that I am struggling a bit but am still here ;) I hope you're all having a decent day, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Free Is Fabulous

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I was inspired by group notices, since there have been even more fantastic FabFree group gifts added recently. Actually I went with some less recent additions, in case anyone has missed them and since they might be changed out sooner than the new ones. There are so many designers who contribute group gifts for anyone wearing the "I Am Fabulous" group tag for FabFree, which of course is free to join. Their blog has been a reliable part of my SL reading for as long as I have been in SL, and so has the inworld group :)


    The first store I visited today was Northern Sky Creations, where I happily claimed their NSC Roses Dress with my FabFree group tag. It comes in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with that beautiful tulip style skirt and rich red top. 


    Next I stopped by D!vine Style, who offer several different gifts for various groups in SL including this Sexy Amore - Mini Dress for FabFree. Like all of the group gifts, there is also a full fatpack on sale for 50% off, lots of colors and personalization available in those :) The Sexy Amore dress comes in 5 classic and 5 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, plus versions for eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. This tied halter dress has plunging views both front and back, so we look great coming or going!


    For those cool spring evenings, may I suggest the Paris Fur Coat from Vips Creations? It is their current FabFree group gift, and is a luxurious hooded coat that also functions as a coatdress, in standard sizes and a fitted version for classic avatars as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. The nicely coordinated black shoes are also provided, in sizes for Maitreya and Slink High feet. I really like the split pattern with spots on the front and a solid black rear. 


    Luziefee is also offering a thoughtful gift to FabFree members, this one called LUZ - Roni red. The halter dress has a fun dotty pattern that made me think of the 60s for some reason. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. 


    For my final look of the evening, I visited {Chaotic} and claimed their sammy outfit among many group's gifts outside the store building. There are arrows on the ground that steer us to them, so you should have no trouble locating them and may see gifts for other groups you are a member of as well. The "made in hell" tank top and distressed denim overalls are each included for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. I would also like to mention that there are treats inside the building for everyone and for their own group, things like midnight mania boards and lucky boards, so I highly encourage exploring to see what strikes your fancy. 

    Tomorrow is a big day for me, as I get injection #2 of the "Fauci ouchie" ;) While I don't expect any drastic side effects, I realize that I will most likely be extra tired and sore, so I am planning on taking the evening off from blogging. I had that in mind when I decided not to take last night off, despite giving myself a break the past several Saturdays, just to try to make my Monday as stress-free as possible other than the jab. I am feeling nervous, but I want to help ensure the safety of the people around me as well as myself. I am also edgy because of thunderstorms rolling through my area for the past hour or so, since it is not fun to lose power in the middle of a blog post. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Shine Like Emeralds

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post brings us to Emerald Couture, where their free group entitles you to several group gifts as well as the chance to win on the group-only lucky chairs. There are some chairs for everyone with no group tag required, and there are now lucky boards above the chairs among lots of other treats that won't cost you a thing. I always enjoy visiting because there are so many sales and bargains in addition to the many freebies, all top quality and many outfits including jewelry and/or shoes. 


    My first look is one of the four newest group gifts, called EC Mayte Dress. It includes sizes for Alice, eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite mesh bodies, with a 3 texture HUD. The choices are the two seen above and another heart pattern in a similar pink to the color on the left. I adore that heart shaped cutout in the front! For all of the group gifts, you will need to right click and pay $1L but it will be automatically refunded as the gift is delivered to you. 


    Next I changed into the flirty EC Lumi Outfit Red GG which is also a free group gift. The dress comes in Altamura Sofia, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes, and the shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high feet. The undies and stockings are provided too, in system/BOM layers and Omega appliers for red and white versions. The dress has a fun split at the waist that makes it look like two pieces from the front. 


    This group gift has a St. Patrick's Day flavor, yet can also be indicative of spring with the cheery green color. It is their EC Lucky Clover Outfit v2, and starts with the dress and matching undies in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. It continues with the necklace and matching earrings, as well as the headband all in versions with and without resize scripts. I appreciate having the panties to wear beneath the short and full skirt, for a touch of modesty. 


    The EC Ciara Dress Green Dot is another generous group gift in vibrant shades of green. It includes standard mesh sizes plus a fitted version for classic avatars, along with sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The style really caught my eye with the bust cutout and the diagonal slash of a hemline that goes from left hip to right knee. 


    While I was there, my initial showed up on one of the group only lucky chairs so I took a seat and won this EC Rebel Outfit Leopard v2. The top and pants are linked together to wear as one piece, in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. The boots come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes too, and for classic avatars you can always use an alpha layer to hide your feet entirely. The pants have such a unique design, with a pocket on the lower back thigh and little embroidered patches scattered about, and the buttons on the barely closed top have skulls on them to perfectly match the one on the belt. 

    It was quite a busy day, and I enjoyed my visit to the farmers market even though the weather was damp and cloudy. It was a bit chilly but not wintry, just enough to need a light jacket. Sometimes the weather keeps people away, but lots of folks showed up to buy tasty goods like I did :) The unpleasant houseguest arrived safely as soon as we got home, so I have been hanging out upstairs here in my computer room. Tomorrow I have things to do downstairs so either there will be an awkward conversation or awkward silence, LOL. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Sexy Weekend Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we have one more assortment of Miix Event group gifts to help celebrate their first anniversary. Just join the Hype Events group for free and you can click all the brightly colored gift boxes you see at each display to claim all sorts of generous treats. The event is open until the 20th, so about a week and a half remain to stop by and check out the terrific sales offerings and of course the gifts :)


    I started my evening in the zOOm gift named Eleanor Romper, and wait until you see how versatile it is. The one piece outfit comes in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies, with a 7 color HUD so you can change up your look with a single click. That deep neckline is a real attention getter, and the flared pant legs balance things out nicely.


    The warmer weather does make being outdoors more appealing, and that can mean more revealing clothing is called for. This gift from IMPACTS, called BIKINI MELLISA, really fits the bill! The bikini top and boy shorts are each provided in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique body sizing. There is also a handy HUD that offers 14 choices for the top and 10 for the bottom, a combo of solids and stripes and playful patterns to mix and match. The tropical leaf print I chose for both on the left really makes me long for a beach and a cool drink.


    Next I shimmied into the MCC - Flavor Dress w HUD which is the group gift from MadCatCreations. The styling is very dramatic with those curvy cutouts and bold collar, and looks great in any of the 8 sequined colors you can choose from the HUD. The dress itself comes in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. 


    Time to get even more seductive, thanks to Watermelon and their Gift 1 lingerie. It is a system/BOM layer with both bra and panties on it, slightly sheer black lace with beautiful straps. Another gift provided as a system/BOM layer is the Lightwood Tatto Oni Japanese, a unisex design covering both arms from shoulder to wrist. The vibrant colors are lovely, and it has really detailed artwork that captures the imagination. 


    I am wrapping up tonight's post with probably the most suggestive gift of the evening :) This is our ROVAN R.S DOUCE BIKINI MO.1, and it includes eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature Alice, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes. It is a single piece, wisps of dark fabric linked with golden hoops and just barely covering the essentials. I know it's labeled as a bikini, but I am considering it lingerie as well, which is not entirely unusual for crossovers between those categories. 

    Are you ready for the weekend? I am prepared but not looking forward to it as much as usual, thanks to the housemate's imminent guest. I am still going to enjoy the farmers market as much as possible, and I will be mostly spending time here at my computer which is not terribly unusual. The weather should be nice, and my DVR is overflowing with things to watch :) I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    More Miix Event Gifts

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we enjoy more Miix Event group gifts, yours to claim with their free Hype Events group tag. There are so many exciting reasons to visit, not the least of which is the many designers who are helping to celebrate the Miix Event's first anniversary with these thoughtful gifts. It is open until the 20th of April, so we have plenty of time to browse and claim some free goodies. 


    For my first look of the evening, I chose the ZFG gift called NAVI SKY. This strapless bodysuit has capri length legs and a fun stripe down each side in a darker blue with stars to represent the sky as referenced in the name. It is provided in sizes for eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. 


    Next I had some fun with an outfit and an accessory :) The gift from -XTC- is their Erika Beach Set, whose top and shorts each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. There is also a HUD with 6 choices for each, floral prints for the top with solid colors for our shorts. I like the ability to mix and match by changing them separately, or keep them in the same color family if you prefer. The beverage in my right hand is the .:Bad Rabbit:. Love is. Drink Blue gift, which is provided in two versions, with or without shine. There is a bento hold pose built in, and the brightly colored can has a striped straw and that is either a lollipop or swizzle stick (?) with it. Just something cute to quench your avi's thirst :)


    I do enjoy fashion (among other things) with a celestial theme, whether that is the sun, moon, or a smattering of stars, so this gift from BlondeQueen certainly caught my eye. Their  BQ :::Moon&Stars Dress::: includes Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with an empire waist and full but short skirt. Those colors are just dreamy, with soft clouds to show off the heavenly bodies. 


    Time for a sexy bodysuit, courtesy of FurtaCor! This is their Fany Bodysuit (Denim), and it includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. There is also a HUD in there, with 15 playful choices like various shades of denim with or without flowers (left) and who can resist that fun animal print on the right? There was even a pattern with leaves of a not-altogether-legal-everywhere nature ;) The straps are really intricate and create unique glimpses while covering everything essential.


    For my final look this evening, I am displaying the striking LIVIA::Tia Bento Nails gift that you can claim for free with that Hype Events group tag. These are very easy to wear, just use the HUD for your body to hide the built in nails and add the size that is right for you: Belleza, eBody, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature, Slink, or Tonic. The provided HUD offers 5 manicure choices, each with a terrific mixture of shades and gemstone accents. The ring finger nails are sheer, which I did not realize until I saw the wall behind me peeking through ;) I checked with all color choices and it was consistent, and I have seen lots of beautiful RL nails with that translucent property too. These are a very nice length, a bit longer than our built in nails which makes them a bit more noticeable.

    I had a busy day and got more medical advice from the appointment I went to earlier, parts of which conflict with previous advice, so I have some research to do and decisions to make. Nothing life threatening or anything, just some things that may help general quality of life. I hope you're all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Happy Anniversary Miix

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to invite you to the Miix Event's first anniversary, where you can join their free group (called Hype Events) and claim a free gift from just about every designer who is participating. Anniversaries and birthdays in SL can really bring out the generosity in people, and it's fun to see how each event decorates and what the designers bring to the party. I am delighted to show some of the group gifts, which you can find inside brightly colored gift boxes. 


    First we have the Lily Dress Purple from Ruxy, a flirty mini with plunging neckline decorated with flowers. This gift includes Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, so it fits many popular mesh bodies. 


    Next I changed into the Kastle Rock Couture gift called :KR: Paris Escapade - Jewel. The fluttery top and wrap skirt are each provided in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The tops are labeled modest, and I really like the way the belt attached to the skirt matches the tops perfectly.


    This flattering dress is the ::WD:: Dress Mila Spring Night gift from Web Dew. There are sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies, along with a HUD to change the lace trim to your choice of 20 colors. I am a fan of crossed straps for added interest on the rear view, and the ruffled hem is a visual treat too.


    Another sexy dress is this gift from *HolliPocket* called Tania Mini slate. It comes in Legacy and Maitreya sizes, and has a delicate white lace trim beneath the short hem. The deep neckline is a real attention getter! The fabric is a bit sheer and has a nice shimmer to it. 


    One more look for the day, but with two terrific group gifts in it...the bikini is the Vacori Bikini Collection Fatpackgift from MH Unique. The top and bottom are each included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD that offers 20 colors each for the top, brace (string), bottom, and its brace, so you can mix and match quite a bit. As for the tattoos, that would be the { Speakeasy } Yakuza Tattoo which are full sleeves suitable for any gender. This gift consists of fresh, faded, and worn varieties in system/BOM layers as well as Omega, Signature, and TMP appliers. Isn't the shading impressive? :)

    I have an early afternoon appointment tomorrow so I will probably be fairly tired by the time I am posting in the evening. It won't prevent me from blogging though :) My day was nothing unusual or exciting, and I am just feeling anxiety about my upcoming 2nd injection and a few other random health things. So I am trying to focus on calm, peaceful things instead, and will be spending time in SL unwinding with Xan. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    I Love The Gacha Life

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are heading to The Gacha Life, a bimonthly (every 2 months) event that lets you try your luck on gachas and claim some generous group gifts. The group is free to join, and the gifts are inside black bags at each display with a framed image of the gift next to the bag. A selection of those gifts are what I will be sharing tonight, and the best part is that there are even more than the handful I randomly chose to display here :) This round's theme is The Great Outdoors, so the designers let their imaginations run wild and I really enjoyed the selections.


    My first look has me daydreaming about summer! It is the *Sexy Style* Karim Outfit 4, and it consists of the bra top (bikini top?) and long skirt each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The skirt has such a fun Boho style, like a denim mini skirt with a long scarf attached. 


    Time to get flirty with the group gift from GIULIADESIGN called ROSITA 1. Our dress and boots are each included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and there is a jewelry set of necklace and matching earrings provided as well. The dress is very lingerie-like with thong panties built in, and there is something so seductive about thigh high boots!


    C.Y <3 Fashion has a gift for us called Milly, a pretty pink dress with high-low hem and a floral heart pattern. It includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, plus a pair of black shoes (not shown) that did not quite fit my Maitreya feet and were not adjustable so I couldn't tell what body they are made for. You can just as easily wear a pair of white or pink shoes with it to complete the look if you prefer :)


    This gift is both sexy and romantic, thanks to the lace and the plunging back revealing a bit of bum cleavage. It is the Cherie Mini Dress from KEY STYLE, and can be yours for free with your Gacha Life group tag. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a 3 color HUD so you can customize the look. 


    For my final look of the evening, I chose the BlondeQueen gift called BQ::Pink HeartDress:: which comes in a single Maitreya size. I really like the swirly heart pattern on this short halter dress, and the white lines really make the various shades of pink pop. 

    It has been a long day, and I found out that my housemate is having company for the upcoming weekend which does not thrill me because the guest's behavior tends to be less than stellar. My healthy food will be shoved aside in the fridge (or possibly thrown out) to make room for cheap beer, and the noise levels will be off the charts. I will do my best to be patient and polite, but will mostly be hiding here in the room with my computer and tv. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Hop Along Hunt

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features some hunt prizes from the Hop Along Hunt 4, which are all found inside small purple eggs hidden in each store for just $1L. The hints and some preview images are on the hunt's website, as well as the landmarks so you can navigate from stop to stop with the site's assistance. There are a few male prizes among the fashion finds, and lots of accessories and home decor to round things out. Your house and garden can get a fresh new look just like your wardrobe :) I always appreciate that hunt prizes are usually high quality while being extremely affordable, and a great way to see what a designer's products are like. 


    My first look comes from ~MystRie~ and is one of two prizes there, male and female. It is called Softly Spring Dress, and really lives up to that name with its pale green and white floral pattern on a light maxi dress. It is provided in 3 fitmesh sizes (S, M, L) for classic avatars along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizing. I think it is ideal for warmer weather, or dreaming of spring when chilly weather hits. The male prize is in a different egg, so following the hints is especially important to ensure you are picking up the correct one.


    The egg at [Ari-Pari] holds a prize created exclusive for this hunt, so finding it is the only way to obtain this lovely Belinda Spring Dress - HAH4. It includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a 10 texture HUD that lets you choose from a variety of floral prints. The style is a flirty one, with straps that cross in the back and meet in the front to loop through and hold our bodice in place. 


    Next I slipped into the ::REA:: Deandra dress, another versatile and sexy prize. It is provided in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. There is also a HUD with 6 dress colors and 11 metals for the chains that link the top and skirt. It's a little bit feminine and a little bit rock and roll ;)


    Another choice that brings plenty of options for those who enjoy multiple looks from a single outfit is the Olivia Dress - Pattern from OMG! Inc. It comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) with a 6 texture HUD that really livens up the dress and makes it more personal. 


    My final look of the evening is delightful for spring too. It is the HAH4 Gift Dress found inside the egg at Prairie, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. Its fluttery mauve skirt is a terrific match for the floral pattern on the bodice, which is carefully crafted to flatter the bustline.

    I seem to be slow tonight, probably just distracted easily by lots of different things going on but nothing problematic. I am trying to get some RL issues taken care of which will involve making appointments here and there, and I am not looking forward much to any of them but they are necessary. I hope you're all having a great day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Egg Hunting Part Two

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more prizes from the Easter Sale and Egg Hunt at Cies Island to share. Several stores there are taking place, just look for the signs outside each location and have fun wandering the charming sim to find tiny pastel eggs inside the stores. There are also gachas for 50% off as part of the holiday sale, and this all lasts until the 11th so you have almost a week remaining. I really enjoyed browsing the shops, and hope you do too!


    My first look of the evening comes from an egg in the BlackJack store. This prize is called BJK* Festive Dress & Stole Green, and starts with a dashing wrap dress in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes. The stole is a single fitted size that should fit most bodies and shapes, and the dress looks terrific with or without it. 


    Next I am a big fan of the sexy Luas prize called Jacintha White. Its corset and separate sleeves are provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite mesh bodies. It has delicate white accent roses in strategic locations, and really draws attention to the waist. 


    I felt extra pretty in pink with this prize from Una called Claudia Pink. It includes long and short versions, each sized for the Maitreya body. The long (on the left above) has a flowing skirt that pools into a slight train and looks luxurious when walking. The short one is very similar otherwise with the black trim and exposed openings, with a brief fluttery hemline. 


    Another egg I found at Una contained their Medusa White gift, although the wrap dress with plunging neckline actually comes in white and yellow versions inside. Each of those is provided in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with silver and gold snake belts in those same sizes plus an unrigged version in case you want one you can adjust. This prize offers plenty of versatility!


    My final look of the night is the Pixie White prize, also from Una. This dress is styled like overalls, complete with heart cutouts both front and back. You could layer a shirt beneath for modesty of you wish since those sides are awfully low, it all depends where you wish to wear it I suppose. A bodysuit would cover the tiny flash of bum cleavage revealed by the rear heart too :) Find the egg and you will be able to claim it in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, all for free just like the rest of the generous eggs. 

    I had a busy and tiring weekend, but for the most part I enjoyed it so I would say it was worth it :) The market was fun, and I met a 4 month old Shar Pei puppy named Bao who was a friendly little sweetheart ♥. I did a video chat with my grandmother this afternoon for Easter, with my parents' help, and then later had a nice ham dinner with my parents. The new month in SL brings all sorts of exciting events and hunts, so I am looking forward to this week and finding special treats to share with all of you. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Easter Egg Hunting

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the Cies Island sim for an Easter Sale and Egg Hunt. There are several participating stores with free eggs to find, so please take your time and explore all the stores to see if they have a hunt sign out front so you know there is at least one treat hiding inside. The eggs are fairly small and pastel colored, so they might not appear until you get close to them. They were not terribly tricky to find though, which is helpful when you are searching several large stores :) All of tonight's looks happen to be from eggs at Luas, fashions ranging from formal to flirty. Even though Easter is this weekend, the hunt/sale runs until the 11th of April, so you have over a week to find the eggs.


    My first look this evening is the Luas Cassandra Purple prize, and what a gorgeous color! It includes long and short dresses plus belts in silver and gold, each in Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, plus a single size shawl in beige. You can mix and match these to wear this your way, depending on your tastes and the occasion. I went beltless on the right so you could see the dresses do not have a sharp waistline, meaning without one of the belts you get more of a sleek flowing style.


    Next we have the prize called Luas Shiadal Black, a tempting mini dress with spaghetti straps that is gathered at the left hip and tied with a bow. It comes in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh body sizes. I enjoy the contrast of the stark black with the bows and ruffles, a mix of seductive and sweet.


    This look combines two different prizes, and I don't know if they were intended to be worn this way but I think they look hot together! The top is the Luas Tiffany Top Lilac, a soft knit sweater with long detached sleeves and a fun opening in the front. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies. The Luas Dara Skirt Leopard Purple has zippers galore and a terrific pattern, and when you find this egg you can claim it in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing. 


    For a very sexy look, be sure to find the egg containing Luas Sweetie Blue. It consists of the corset, pasties, and thong (no sides or back on the thong though, so more of a patch) each in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes. I love the deep sapphire blue shade, and the way the studs on the corset appear to sparkle or twinkle. The heart shaped pasties and little bows add romance too.


    My final look of the evening is their Luas Estela Pink & White corset and panty. They are each included in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The hot pink satin has a subtle pattern embossed, and the white trim, ruffles, and bow are very flattering contrasts. 

    My dental visit went fine yesterday, and I was extra tired so it was good to have the evening off from blogging to rest :) Today I had dinner at my parents' and we made plans for Easter dinner on Sunday and a video chat with my grandmother for the holiday. I long for the days when it will be safe to visit her in person again, which might happen in May for Mothers Day since we will all be fully vaccinated by then. Tomorrow I am off to the farmers market and a few other plans, so I am still taking Saturday evening off from the blog too. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Twisted Tattoos

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more Twisted Hunt prizes to show you from their Spring 2021 round, and this handful includes several tattoos. The hunt's theme this round is Djinn, and the color is sandy orange which can be found on the cube we are searching for as well as many of the prizes. Please check out the hunt's website if you are not familiar with this tricky adventure, so you can be prepared for such things as decoys (up to 13 visible permitted) and how to ask for hints (inworld group, politely) to get as much enjoyment as possible from it. The other most helpful tip I have is to be on the look out for easels with the hunt logo on them, as clicking them will give you a notecard with that store's details like side hunts, sales, gachas, and even occasionally a handy hint :) We have until the 15th of April so there is still plenty of time to find the cubes and claim some free goodies.


    My first look is one of two treats inside the same cube at FMB Fashion, this being the ladies' gift called Brynn Dress. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. There is also a HUD provided with a grid of tinting possibilities or you can enter the hexadecimal (6 character) HTML color code. It also has buttons to adjust shine, glow, and alpha, so this is a really versatile addition to any wardrobe.


    For this look, I will start with the bikini you are going to see in the remainder of my photos this evening :) It is a marketplace freebie called LOVELACE Basic Bikini - BLACK, and includes system/BOM layers for the top and thong separately so you can wear them separately or together. The tattoo is the Twisted hunt prize from Leave Your Mark called LYM - Rub Me The Right Way. You can see the genie lamp on the lower right of the back part, releasing a beautiful genie in swirls of mist. The sleeves have a pop of color towards the shoulders, with different artwork styles blending together. The tattoo comes in a system/BOM layer and an Omega applier, so that should provide a lot of compatibility with various avatars.


    Our next stop is ~*Wyld Winter*~ where you can find 3 cubes that contain prizes among several decoys too, so be sure to look thoroughly. They are each tattoos in BOM layers in 4 opacities (25, 50, 75, and 100%) and with Regalia body versions, and all are tintable. This artwork on my arms is their The Djinn's Garden and can be seen here in its original white. 


    Another cube holds the striking The Djinn's Binding prize, a front ribcage (underboob) design with a lotus and delicate chandelier-like draped chains. The scalloped dark line is the tattoo, not to be confused with the straight band of the bikini string :) For this one, I added the tattoo and edited it, adding a tint to black which I randomly chose since my skintone is rather pale. I saved a copy and added the word black to the end of the new name, so I now have this color in the folder to wear whenever I wish. 


    The Djinn's Lamp is the third prize from ~*Wyld Winter*~, and this one appears on the left thigh down the leg past the knee. I tinted it a reddish brown since the art style reminds me of henna, but remember you can choose any color your imagination leads you to pick :) The genie's lamp is on the left hip, and from the front the thigh area reminded me of a peacock. So pretty and detailed! Technically you can wear these all at the same time since they are on different areas of the body, but I felt it easier to differentiate doing one at a time. It will depend on what I am wearing and therefore which one is easily seen, which I wear at any given time and what color I tint it. 

    I think the technology in my life decided to celebrate April Fool's a little early, because my mouse is all laggy and stuttering when I move it, and when I rebooted my PC yesterday it developed a new bad habit of a Windows Security alert that actions are recommended when there are in fact none needed. I was already planning to take tomorrow evening off from blogging because of a dental appointment, so I feel like this is a weird hint to reaffirm that decision like my computer wants time off too. So I will return on Friday evening, and since it is a new month I will have even more possibilities of what I might choose to share. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Time To Get Twisted

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I am excited to share some prizes from the Twisted Spring 2021 Hunt. This twice-annual hunt is in its 13th year, and the new round has a theme of Djinn with cube color of sandy orange. The theme is described as a Twisted take on genies, Arabian nights, and Persian cultures of old. Usually it runs through the entire month of March, but it started mid-month this time so it goes until April 15th this time. This means we have over 2 weeks remaining to find these very tricky cubes that slowly rotate and haunt our dreams ;) I strongly suggest reading their website if you are not familiar with the hunt, as it will educate you on what makes this hunt unique...things like no hunt hints on the website but they can be requested in the group, and there can be up to 13 decoys in addition to the actual cube with a free prize in it. I also recommend clicking the hunt easel when you see it at a stop, since it will give you information on the prize and any side hunts, gachas, special sales, and anything else you might need to know for their Twisted celebration. The hunt is a challenge, but quite a worthwhile one.


    One of my favorite places to visit during the Twisted Hunt is Roped Passions, because their decoy cubes will treat you to some clever snarky comments in local chat when you click them and it always makes me chuckle. Two of the cubes have prizes though, one for men and the other for the ladies. (RP) Almira Enchanted Gold is the one I am enjoying above, a lush golden top and pants in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Hourglass, Physique, Signature, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The waistband is low and slung diagonally so it winds up being rather revealing from the rear view. I love the detailed trim, and the embossed pattern on the satiny material.


    My next look is also one of two prizes, male and female, found at the same store in different cubes. The store is Better than Naked, and their prize Female includes the overcoat and pants in fitmesh M for classic avatars plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. The boots are for mid height feet of Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Tonic bodies with an unrigged version provided as well. The pattern on the coattails is similar to one on our hidden cubes, and the overcoat has the belts attached for ease of wear.


    Applique` Chic made good use of the cube texture as well, on their AC: Twisted Salwar prize. It consists of the long tunic top and two pairs of pants, each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh bodies. The plain pants are the greyish solid color on the left, while the ones on the right are the brighter yellow but trimmed at waist and cuffs with the shirt's pattern. The slits on both sides of the top work really well with the loose fitting pants, which altogether provides a themed feeling.


    Steel & Ink has two prizes in the same cube, called Barbara and Larry, and I bet you can guess which this is ;) Barbara's tube top and harem pants are rather sheer, each in 3 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars (S, M, L) plus Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The flat sandals are provided for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet. I really like the blue with the sandy yellow color that is prevalent in the hunt, since it reminds me of the ocean washing up on the beach.


    My final look of the evening had just a touch of that golden hue, with lots of fiery red for a gorgeous combination. This is the [TR] Desert Dancer prize from Touryuumon, an outfit that really does make me feel like twirling and dancing :) The jumpsuit comes in Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, and Physique sizes, with the belt as a separate piece that has a resize script built in. The style is very flirty, despite the only bare skin revealed being the shoulders and upper chest area. So fun!

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

    Spring Fling and Easter Fun

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit the Spring Fling at Malus Park again, so I can share yet another fantastic exclusive offer with all of you. This one is from [Ari-Pari] whose main store is located on Malus sim too, so while you are there you can always head on over and explore the shop :) Their website has a shopping guide that is very useful so you can see a catalog of the event's offerings. Then I would like to invite you to Tiar, where you can find small brightly colored eggs that give free gifts when clicked. There are 8 different eggs that spawn randomly for just 60 seconds at a time, in various places within the main store building, so I suggest you keep moving and look for the tiny eggs to appear on the ground. I found some upstairs and some downstairs, and duplicates happened since they are random, but eventually I got 7 of the 8 with the last one seeming to be a men's prize so I am fine without it. Please peek at their blog for full details. 


    My first look is the [Ari-Pari] Coffee Love Pajamas, which you will only find at the Spring Fling event as they are an exclusive selection. The tank top and pajama pants are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and there is a generous HUD with 12 choices for each. There are solid colors for the top and coffee cup patterned options for the pants, depending on if they are dark or light shades you will get either the white print (seen on the left) or the black with pink hearts and cute coffee sayings. All this is just $250L, which is far less than a cup of coffee when converted to your local RL currency ;) I really enjoy the ability to mix and match the colors too, and yes I do truly love coffee so this set speaks to me.


    Tiar is helping us prepare our wardrobes for Easter and spring (no need to celebrate the holiday to enjoy the bright colors) with their egg hunt. One of their striking prizes is this Tiar easter fun jumpsuit yellow, a one piece zippered outfit in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. That is a really vibrant shade of yellow, isn't it? Lovely! 


    If you have visited my blog before, you may know that I am a big fan of the color pink, so this Tiar easter fun romper pink is right up my alley. Find the right egg (#5 according to their blog, I couldn't recall) and you too can claim this in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. The short romper is trimmed with golden yellow zippers, and the long belt's buckle matches perfectly. It has a shiny texture that makes me think latex or leather. 


    My next look combines two prizes, one with a dress and the other accessories. The dress is called Tiar easter fun eggdress, and the strapless mini is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, and Slink Hourglass bodies. Tiar easter fun ear tail is a prize that is just as advertised, a pair of bunny ears with a mesh tail. The steely blue and pink of the ears are a cute combination, and the tail is a soft white shade that gives it a realistic feeling. Often when I see ears and tails like this in SL, they make me think of both Easter and Playboy bunnies at the same time, so these are not restricted to this particular season.


    My final look of the evening is another Tiar prize called easter fun yellow dot dress. It has sweet ruffles and polka dots that give it that retro flavor, and the short hemline helps it feel flirty too. This prize includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. 

    It was a decent day followed by a strange evening, not exactly bad but a bit confusing thanks to someone's odd behavior. It is fine now though, and I am looking forward to spending time with Xan and visiting SL in a little while. I hope you're all having a great day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Spring Fling and Fantasies

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to show you another selection from the Spring Fling at Malus Park, which is bursting with seasonal beauty and exclusive offers :) There are even gifts for $25L or less at most of the displays, so you can save lots of lindens while refreshing your spring wardrobe and home decor. Then we head to a fun and free sim hunt, the Spring Fantasies Hunt at Wind Struck. There are many places to explore to find various colored striped eggs, which are set for sale for $0L and contain home and garden items, seasonal decorations, and some holiday clothing treats. Each outfit has a male version and a female version, or unisex in the case of some cute pajamas, and there are a couple of kids' sized prizes too. My best advice is to read the notecard you receive upon arriving, and look in each store or building you find as well as searching other areas of interest by following the pathways. Most of the clothing is geared towards standard avatars, but with BOM and the alpha layers provided they worked perfectly for my Maitreya body too. 


    My first look is the exclusive offer from *Lurve* at Spring Fling, called Flirty Skirt Outfit in Snow. The lovely sweater and skirt can be worn separately as well as looking wonderful paired together, and they are provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. You can purchase this outfit for just $195L, only at the Spring Fling at Malus Park. 


    Now over to the Spring Fantasies Hunt, this is the TFF Hippie Chick in Green and Purple from Tayren's Fashion Fantasies. Their mainstore is located on this beautiful sim, so it makes sense for them to provide our wearable goodies :) The dress and vest each come in standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The full outfit also includes unrigged (adjustable) beaded sandals, beaded hair accessory, fringed leather bag, and love beads with peace sign. All of those have resize scripts built in, so you can get the best possible fit with very little effort. There is a male version of this outfit too, so you can coordinate for a party or just for fun!


    Next I slipped into the exciting TFF Spring Toga in Blue - Female prize, which also has a matching male version in another hidden egg. The toga dress includes standard mesh sizes, and the gift also consists of the gold laurel hair wreath and unrigged sandals. We can click the wreath and sandals for resize scripts, and the sandals will fit most flat mesh fit by doing so. 


    I also found a charming outfit called TFF Spring Date Outfit for Women, which I definitely intend to wear for more than just dates ;) It starts with the dress in a standard version as well as sizes for eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, then continues with unrigged pumps and a straw hat with flowers. The pumps and hat have resize scripts built in, and I love having shoes that perfectly match the pink and white stripes of the dress. 


    For my final look of the evening, I am enjoying a few different prizes that go wonderfully together. The one piece pajamas are the TFF Easter Pajamas for Adults & Kids, which come in standard sizes. I am wearing the M with the alpha layer, and as you can see it works out very well. The ears, nose, and tail are all from the TFF Bunny Accessory Set prize, and each has a resize script that you can access just by clicking. My adorable slippers are the TFF Bunny Slippers for Adults & Kids, each provided in pink and blue colors for adults and kids. They can be adjusted too, so they should be able to work with your favorite mesh feet. I feel so coordinated and ready for Easter :)

    Hair note of the night: Truth Hair released their newest style with an updated Essentials pack as one of the options, and I was impressed with the wide range of colors available so I chose to purchase that one. I do also love the style, short enough not to hide the back of clothing I want to show off, and with flirty loose curls that gave me such Marilyn Monroe vibes that I chose a golden blonde shade today. The essentials pack is $500L compared to the $300L of the others, but with so many additional choices it is more like a mini fatpack. Since I have taken to changing from my traditional ginger shades lately, it makes the most sense for me to have a HUD with more possibilities. The stylist tab of the HUD lets you flip which side the hair is parted, and change the braided side to loose and gently pulled behind the ear. As always, you should demo any hair before buying of course. The good news is that Truth even mentioned possibly adding colors to the essentials pack in the future depending on feedback, so please let him know if there is a shade you really want to see in there.

    It was a long but mostly good weekend, and I am ready for whatever the new week and new month bring :) The only downside will be the dentist visit on Thursday, because who wants to have people poking around with sharp instruments in their mouth on April Fool's Day? LOL! Don't worry, I trust the people at the office I go to very much and will be blissfully unaware of anything because of nitrous anyway. I hope you all had a terrific weekend and are enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Come On Over

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I was in the mood for variety again, so I started by exploring the Spring Fling at Malus Park. This first annual event is open until the 15th of April and features exclusive offers of fashion and home decor. There are also gifts for $25L or less in brightly colored gift boxes at each display, so be sure to check those out too while you visit :) We are encouraged to explore the entire area, as there are additional sights to discover in the beautiful region. Then I realized that there had been several notices recently about new FabFree group gifts, so that felt like a great way to prepare for the weekend. The group is free to join, and many generous designers provide group gifts for its members to enjoy. 


    My first look is a delightfully casual outfit from MadCatCreations called Boho Laced Top and Pants w HUD. You can find this at the Spring Fling event for $199L, along with several other great offers. The top and jeans are each included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite mesh bodies. There is also a HUD with 10 color choices for the top, and I just have to say that the style impressed me with its solid front and mostly bare back laced oh so loosely. The high waisted jeans are an ideal neutral to wear with any color you choose for the top.


    Then I visited Sweet Serenity Designs, where there are currently two FabFree group gifts including one I shared previously. This charming dress is their SSD MELODIE DRESS RED, and it has a relaxed fit with detailed sleeves and a flared skirt. The gift is created for the Maitreya mesh body, but there is always a chance of it fitting similarly shaped bodies. 


    FurtaCor has an entire room upstairs dedicated to group gifts, their own group and others, so it is not really a surprise that they are offering three FabFree gifts at present. This is their :::FurtaCor:::Jezabel Dress (FATPACK), and its flirty strapless mini has what I call peek-a-booty ;) That would be the revealing rear view! It comes in Altamura, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. There is also a HUD provided with 15 texture choices, a mixture of solids and patterns that means you can change things up to suit any mood. 


    For a different style peek-a-booty, LOL, you will also want to claim the [FurtaCor Female] Janeh Dress gift for FabFree. This sexy little number is designed for the Maitreya body, and includes a HUD with 26 texture options. There are solids and patterns among our choices, so click those buttons until you find the one that makes you smile first. 


    My final look of the evening is the third FabFree gift at FurtaCor, called [FurtaCor Female] Tamyres Set. It starts with the tank dress in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes, then continues with the pumps & socks (one piece linked together) for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. As you can probably guess, there is also a HUD included so you can pick from 10 colors for each, dress and socks. All of the dresses have the rainbow on the front, but only one sock color (white) has the rainbow at the top, and each dress hue has various colored stripes as the trim. So much variety! There are three lollipops included too, two for the hand and one for the mouth. Both 'hand' ones are for our right hand, with one having an eating animation and the other no pose or animation at all. 

    It did not feel like a Friday because of my changed schedule, but it was a decent day regardless :) The weather is feeling much more like spring, and the groundhog who lives in my backyard was out and about again earlier so that makes me happy. Tomorrow is the farmers market I visit every Saturday, then a trip to see the German baker who is moving away soon, not back to Germany but to another state because his wife had to move there for her job. As has now become my custom, I am taking Saturday evening off from blogging, but there will be a new post on Sunday night with more bargains and gifts :) I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Early Weekend Celebration

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a fun mixture for you, starting with some Wash Cart Sale finds from their final round. The theme is Make Your Soul Bloom, and all selections are $50L or less until the 7th of April when things wrap up. I also get to show you a terrific Saturday Sale offer that is already available at Entice and will be for several days, because saving money should be enjoyable :) There are even some treasure hunt prizes from the Easter in Wonderland Shopping and Treasure Hunt event. We are looking for small easter baskets to click which have 3 eggs and a ribbon on them, and they distribute prizes for free when touched. They are in buildings and near carts, all throughout the very pretty event area, available until the 5th of April. If you don't have plans yet for the upcoming weekend, please take any and all of these as my suggestions!


    Artistic.Rage makes their home at The Wash, and for this final cart sale they have two carts filled with bargains. One of them has these gorgeous Summer Days Jumpsuits available for just $50L each. The purple is on the left and yellow to the right, each of which includes the top and pants in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The finds at this cart sale and recent hunts have really made me a fan of yellow lately, which I never was before so I am impressed! No matter what your favorite colors are, there are enough options here that I think you will be pleased too.


    This look features something from the Wash cart sale and something from Entice, can you guess which is which? The tattoo is by Leave Your Mark, and that is one of several striking choices at their cart at The Wash for $50L each. It is called LYM - 3 - Hope is an Anchor - ACS OSC, and includes system/BOM layers and an Omega applier. The artwork covers both arms, the neck, and above and below the breasts, not to mention that amazing back piece! I had been trying to decide what to wear to show off the tattoo as well as possible, and then the Saturday Sale offer from Entice was released so it just seemed like fate :) This is their Satin Doll v2 - Blue, one of 3 colors especially for the Saturday Sale at $75L apiece. Each consists of the pasties and panties sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies. There is also a discount on the original colors, 8 of which are $180L each and then there is a fatpack of 10 (two bonus exclusive shades!) for $360L. Lots of great ways to make your upcoming weekend extra seductive! The Saturday Sale items will be at these low prices until April 1st, and that is not an April Fool's joke, I promise. 


    Our next stop is the Easter Wonderland event for that fun treasure hunt, where I found this hilarious [RnR] Swag Jelly Bean Outfit (Easter). The top reads "Ever wonder where jelly beans come from?" above an image of two bunnies, well, having some fun ;) The top and shorts each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with bunny sneakers in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink flat versions. Even the bunny I am holding is included, with a built in hold pose as shown. I can't get over how adorable the sneakers are, and just might wear them with other outfits too.


    The basket for Freya's Fashions is set up a little differently, as we need to pay $1L but it is immediately refunded while our hunt prize is delivered to us. It is their Julia (Carrots Cream) lingerie, whose bra and panties are each provided as system/BOM layers and Omega appliers, to wear together or individually. The touches of lace are a flattering contrast to the playful carrot pattern that certainly calls Easter and spring to mind.


    I kept Freya's panties on for the last look of the evening, so I could show you another treasure hunt goodie called Loki - Banana Bunny Tee - Yellow - Maitreya. It has a bunny holding a banana on the upper left as a whimsical logo, and I really like the soft yellow complemented by the white trim at neck and both sleeves. You can pair this with just about anything you wish, jeans or leggings or a skirt, to make the look your own. 

    I feel so confused today, with the dinner plans I usually have on Friday being moved to Thursday and trying to get plans organized for the next couple of days. Did all of you manage to get the $1L Catwa head from the marketplace? That was quite an adventure this morning, being inworld just after midnight SL time and seeing several groups chatting about marketplace struggling with that kind of volume. I was able to purchase it but it hadn't been delivered yet when I logged out, so I will see when I login in an hour or two. I am really stuck in a rut with this Genus head and how much I like it, so even heads I got for free around the holidays are still lingering in my inventory without being worn. I need to snap out of it, since variety can be a good thing. Well I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Whispers of Spring

     Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to show you some more offers to be found at The Wash Cart Sale during their Make Your Soul Bloom round. It is the final round of this long running event, so be sure to visit and help make it spectacular as the designers have done :) There are selections for $50L or less at every cart, with some exclusive designs that make it even more worthwhile to stop by. I also want to share a few more prizes from the free Kiyomizu Hunt, taking place at the Kiyomizu Mall and some mainstores around the grid. Please click a floating ghost above one of the walkways at the mall to see where you still need to go and which ninja cats you've already found. 


    First we visit the Sweet Serenity Designs cart, where there are several beautiful dresses for the Maitreya body for just $50L apiece. On the left above I am wearing their SSD MY SWEET PAPILLION GOWN LILAC, a stunning strapless gown with shadowy swirls and a long mermaid shape. It is the same style (front and back) as the SSD MY EBONY & WHITE PAPIE GOWN you see on the right, so yes it has an intricate butterfly design on the back. There are other styles available too, so follow the link in my ending credits to reach the cart directly and you can always visit their mainstore by clicking here


    Savoha Creations has plenty of affordable offers for us, including home decor, accessories like hair and makeup, and clothing for classic or mesh avatars. The two outfits above are both from their $10L special called mix & match pack 1. It contains 4 tops and 4 pairs of pants, all in system/BOM layers. On the left is the blue dream top and blue fun jeans, with the pink halter top and fancy jeans pink to the right. Just like the name says, we can pair these however we wish and create several different looks for one low price. The mainstore of Savoha is on the Wash sim too, so they are right at home literally here at the cart sale.


    Over to the Kiyomizu Hunt, I am especially fond of this prize for a few reasons...one being I have pictures of my mom in a dress in this exact style from the 60s but plain white with blue ribbons and I believe blue ruffles down the front :) Another is that it has so many adorable animals on it! This is the .: MC :. SleeveRibbonAnimalDress from Magiclo, and it includes sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. 


    Next we celebrate spring with the .*.Jury PoP.*. prize called Haruno Tunic Wanpi - Purple. It comes in 3 fitmesh sizes (S, M, L) for classic avatars as well as Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. The texture looks like terrycloth, a soft and touchable fabric, and did you notice the slit pocket? Love it! There is one on each side, and the rabbit on the moon in front is a cutie. 


    For my final look of the evening, I selected a nail polish hunt prize since our fingertips deserve some love too ♥. This is the [::]colon colon SakuraNail-KiyomizuHunt2021spring, and the gift includes appliers for Altamura, Belleza, Kupra, and Maitreya mesh hands. As you can see, there are multiple similar designs among the nails, with more sakura or cherry blossoms appearing on the index and middle fingers. I really like the teal background for the pink of the flowers, and there is a satin finish rather than a high gloss which accentuates the artwork. 

    I can't tell if this week is going slowly or quickly, since at different points today it has seemed like both. My arm is almost completely better from the injection discomfort, and I don't have a particularly high pain tolerance so this isn't just being brave or anything. I am going to my parents' for dinner tomorrow instead of Friday because my dad has a radiation treatment Friday evening, apparently there have been scheduling issues and I do not mind adjusting our plans especially for something so important. We lost his father almost 30 years ago to the same type of cancer (prostate that spread) so extra caution is wise. He is 8 years younger now than his dad was when he passed away, and much healthier in general with a lifestyle geared towards staying that way. I believe that things look positive for him :) I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
