No Cabide Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am sharing some group gifts from my morning visit to No Cabide, and their group is free to join so these generous presents won't cost you anything at all. There are goodies for many other groups as well, but I chose to focus on the store's group for today. There are milestone gifts and a Halloween gift still available, so if they catch your eye as they did mine, I cannot tell how long they will be there so I'd hurry :) Another part of SL wardrobes that I am very fond of is nails, a great manicure/pedicure can make any outfit feel even more special, so tonight I am showing you a fantastic LIVIA set you can purchase at the SCALA Yin/Yang event for November. 


First we have the gift celebrating 12,000 group members, called No Cabide Sara Outfit 4 Models. It consists of a sweater and skirt each in sizes for standard, Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, as well as the black bag, left and right watches, gold glasses, and scarf in 2 sizes. The shoes have the socks attached and are available in plenty of sizes too, just unpack the body type (Slink, Maitreya, etc) and each of those packs contains everything you need. There is also a HUD that lets you change colors/textures, 4 each for the sweater and skirt and even the shoes. The purse has a built in hold pose to ensure that it hangs from your hand correctly. 


The gift to celebrate 14K group members took on a distinctly Harley Quinn flavor, with the sexy turned up to full volume! This is called Harley Set and it starts with the top, shorts, and garters that each have sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is an Omega applier with the socks you see here in both designs, white and checkered, and the other goodies included are the wedge sneakers, the choker I am wearing, and the fun glasses in 4 sizes, all of which contain resize scripts. There is so much you can do with this set, wear as many or as few of the components as you wish and mix it up with other outfits to find the perfect look for you.


Even the most angelic personality among us tends to have a dash of mischief, that devilish side that comes out to play every now and then. When it does, show it off in this No Cabide Demon Girl Outfit, the playful Halloween gift I mentioned earlier. Inside you will find the revealing dress in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with plenty of accessories: tail, horns, wings, necklace, and boots in small/medium/large sizes. Most of the components have resize scripts so just give them a click if you want to adjust them. 


When the weather starts to get chilly, as it is here in RL for me, I start to crave clothing like bulky sweaters, which are not always the most flattering or flirty of choices. This gift called No Cabide - Izzie Set is actually a perfect solution to that dilemma, since it is cozy with those long sleeves, but also has little peekaboo vents to show cleavage and is long enough to be worn as a dress without the need for pants. I love the added touch of the hood, and the front reads "Beauty and Crazy Live Dreams" with a couple of lip prints decorating the text. The sweater dress is provided in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and the sneakers are included as well to keep your toes warm and fashionable. 


The eternal Harry Potter geek in me immediately thought "Ravenclaw" when I saw this gorgeous nail set from LIVIA, then one of the designs made me think Art Deco. Clearly like all artwork, this nail art can evoke different thoughts and opinions. It is called Tranquil Nails and is found exclusively at the SCALA Yin/Yang event this month, for only $99L. The HUD is compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Omega, Tuty, and Vista, with 5 designs that beautifully combine the two main colors. Do they make you think of the sun and sky, or the sand and ocean? Ravenclaw? Maybe they are your school colors, or just a favorite shade of blue. Whatever motivates you, be sure to visit and pick them up before the month ends! The LIVIA mainstore link is in my right sidebar as always, and the credits at the end will whisk you right to the event location.

I am running a bit late tonight, distracted by breaking news that is deeply upsetting me. There is a huge fire at the nursing home/senior facility where my grandmother stayed for a while during her rehab from her stroke, and while she is safely at home I can't help but worry about all those residents who were evacuated into the cold and have to wait to be transported somewhere safe. I guess having seen first hand how vulnerable the residents are (most are wheelchair bound or bedridden) is making me worry even more than usual. All I can do is pray, send positive vibes, and keep an eye on the local news websites. And to think, a few minutes before hearing about this, I was fretting about a hockey game...that sure seems tiny in comparison now. I hope you're all having a good day/evening, please tell someone you love them or do something nice to show them. Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fantastic Fashion Dazzle and Free Dove Finds

Hiya everyone! Tonight we will be exploring the Fashion Dazzle event again, which is open until the 25th of each month and as I mentioned yesterday, has a delightful theme for November of Geometry Shapes in Fashion. I will be showing you dresses from PaperMoon and some home decor from Storaxtree, all of which can be found at Fashion Dazzle this round. I also will be sharing some more gifts from The Free Dove, for which you just need their group tag (free to join) to claim. I've been a fan of Free Dove for years, and greatly appreciate that it brings together so many generous designers who offer gifts suitable for men or women, new or longtime residents, classic avatars or mesh bodies, it is very inclusive. 


Our first look is actually two dresses by PaperMoon that you can pick up for just $240L each at Fashion Dazzle. On the left is PaperMoon- KISS ME Gown V1, on the right is V2, and they each include 8 fitmesh sizes: standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. They are both beautiful designs, one with circles in pops of color and the other decorated in jazzy sequins. We also have such a flattering rear view too from this style, that dramatic plunge of the back.


All you have to do to reach The Free Dove from Fashion Dazzle is head out the door and cross the pretty courtyard, and follow the path into the Free Dove building. The courtyard has signs about each month's mini hunts as well as featured designers, so it is a fun little journey. Once inside, I headed to the women's clothing displays where I found this deep green gown gift from Gidget's Style. It's called GS TFD Adanna Giftie Nov2017, so it is new here for this month, and includes standard mesh sizes. Just have your Free Dove group tag active and give the box a click, and it's all yours for free.


Perhaps you are in the mood for a paler shade of green, and a more revealing style of dress, well the gift from G SLOANE has got you covered. It is called GSC English Garden Dress, and is provided in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. Before I had my mesh bodies, I found that sometimes a size meant for a mesh body fit my shape fairly well, and I had enough various alpha layers in my inventory that one was likely to match up to what I needed. 


This generous gift is from FurtaCor and is their Katty Dress, which comes in sizes for eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, with small and large standard sizes as well. There is a HUD that offers 29 textures for this flirty mini, solids and a variety of prints, and the studded clutch in my left hand is included in this gift too. There is even a tattoo included but not shown (sorry, had a forgetful moment) as an Omega applier, that covers the shoulders and arms, can be worn with this or any outfit you choose. 


My last photo will need to be clicked so you can see it full sized :) The dress is a Free Dove group gift from LUXE Paris, their ARTSY Dress which includes standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya and Eve Slim versions. The ruffled hem and floral bodice are a clever contrast to the stark black and white coloring, so it's not overly girlie. If you head back over to Fashion Dazzle and visit the Storaxtree display, you will find several color variations of the stunning Plates & Candles Shelf B4 I am standing next to here, just $75L each and with a built in resize script. The land impact is a modest 7, and I was particularly drawn to the teal of the plates and candles but the others each have different colors if you prefer. Those dainty lights draped beneath are a wonderful touch, and the rustic style suits so many different popular home decorating ideas. It will also be fun for the upcoming holiday season and they are transferable, so pick up extra for gift purposes too.

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

Fashion Dazzle and Free Dove

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have two places to visit, but they are both located on the same lovely sim so it is even easier to pick up all of tonight's featured fashions. The first photo has some of the amazing offerings from Loordes of London at Fashion Dazzle, and I was very impressed with their interpretation of the Fashion Dazzle theme for November, Geometry Shapes in Fashion. The entire event is a visual feast, and all the designers went all out to decorate their displays splendidly. It is always a treat to visit with such creative themes and exclusive offers. My other looks are all from The Free Dove, from among the many free gifts that are not part of the mini hunts but available for all Free Dove group members. Each area is labeled so you know just where to browse if you are looking for clothing, accessories, shapes, skin, etc., for men or women. I certainly found some wonderful gifts that I couldn't resist sharing with all of you.


I chose two of the dresses and two pairs of boots to show you from the Loordes of London selection at Fashion Dazzle, aren't those shapes remarkable? On the left is Loordes of London-The Samothrace#14, and on the right The Samothrace#34 is the dress of choice. They are a single mesh piece with belt attached, provided in standard sizes. The boots on the left are Loordes of London-The French Quarter Boots Teal/Gold, and on the right are the same in Black/Gold, complete with alpha and shoe base so no particular mesh feet are required. Each of these beauties, the dresses and the boots, are just $50L, and there are other versions of the dress and the boots available there as well. 


Next I wandered over to The Free Dove, another favorite place of mine to visit, and was immediately drawn to this dress from !Rebel Hope called Amy Mesh Gift Dress. She is included in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. There is also a handy HUD with 10 dress colors and 4 metal options, and as you can see on the right that metal includes several chains draped across the back. The details really captured my attention, and the versatility of the HUD just makes it even better, especially for a free gift.


Confession: it is really chilly here right now in RL, and I am a bit jealous of my avi's ability to still enjoy such breezy styles! This striking mini dress is a gift from 1 Hundred. and is called Heatwave Mini Fuschia. I love the splashes of color and the myriad of flowers decorating this dress, which you will receive in an unrigged mesh version plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes when you claim this free gift.


Now this is a fun look for when we want something more casual, and are not ready to bundle up yet. It is our gift from Artizana, called Terike IV - Halter Top + Harem Pants. Each piece is included in standard, Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP sizes.


One last look of the evening, a very thoughtful gift from Baby Monkey called BM Elise Dress Print, and this print is actually an exclusive for The Free Dove. It also has some bonus versatility, as it includes the dress as well as the shirt and skirt separately in case you wish to do a bit of mixing and matching. Each part is provided in a fitmesh size plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. Don't forget to check the shoe section for another gift from them :)

It was a strange day, one that reminded me of just how not tech-savvy I really am...my Photoshop wanted to update (Creative Cloud, Adobe...) but the install was failing because of 2 stubborn files. It took a few people and several hours before we resorted to a temporary fix of installing an old version so I'd have some way to edit blog pictures for tonight. The important thing is that I was obviously able to make do with the old version, and I'll be curious to see when it asks me to update again. My answer will be no, at least not until I'm sure things are less buggy. I hope you're all having a great day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Happy Anniversary Hairology

Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features several different styles and colors of hair, which are all found at Hairology and even better, as free gifts for their 2nd anniversary round. Most of the designers' displays have a yummy looking two-tiered cake with chocolate icing on a blue stand, set for sale for $0L with no group needed, so you can claim all these gifts while browsing the exclusive hair offers. We also get to take a trip to Sad November where we can find a perfect cool-weather coatdress from Entice that I am enjoying in all of tonight's photos. Trust me, you will not feel sad when you are wearing this beautiful outfit!


First we have a good look at that comfy, elegant coat dress I mentioned from Entice at Sad November. It's called We Got The Beat, and there are 8 individual colors for sale for $150L each (sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Fitted included in each), or you can get an excellent bargain by purchasing the fatpack for $450L. The fatpack includes a HUD with all 8 colors plus 2 bonus ones (including the teal on the left above) and it lets you change the sleeves separately from the body for even more versatility. I think I need an SL shirt that says HUD Life, I am such a fangirl for HUDs! That affinity predates my blogging history, they have just always struck me as an excellent idea. As for my hair, that is our gift from TUKINOWAGUMA called *TKW* Delrio. It is included in rigged and unrigged versions and comes with a full range of color HUDs: blonde 1, blonde 2, brown 1, brown 2, colors 1, colors 2, natural colors 1, natural colors 2, red/black 1, and red/black 2. I couldn't tell if this gift is meant to be unisex or for men and/or women, but I really like it so I wore it :) 


This lovely hairstyle is our gift from RunAway Hair called [RA] Sophie Hair - Recolored, and it includes regular, boobs, and fitted versions. There is also a color HUD with 9 options, as you can see there are very pretty ombres and fades among the choices. The soft waves make for a very attractive style.


Speaking of waves, these beachy looking loose waves are from Damselfly and are called Lena Rigged Mesh hair. There are two sizes (small/medium and large) as well as a HUD with a whopping 40 color choices, solids and ombres in natural and fantasy colors galore. With all those possibilities, you can change your look whenever you wish.


This sleek side ponytail is our gift from Mithral called Oats, and it comes in a soft auburn shade that I normally gravitate towards. There are regular and busty versions included in case your ponytail needs a bit more room to accommodate your curves. You may have noticed I added a pretty accessory around my neck, that is actually the anniversary gift from Pink Hustler called *PH* knit choker. It includes a HUD with 20 color choices for the main band, 20 for the ties in the center, and even 3 metal tones to really personalize this for whatever look you wish to wear it with.


If you cannot decide between wearing your hair up or down, you can always compromise with this free gift from Limerence, named Sonia. This partial updo includes a regular and a boobs version, with a color HUD called Special Set that features 20 pastel choices for you to tint your hair. Those flowing locks and softly upswept bun are ideal for colors that make us think of faeries or mermaids, bringing a touch of fantasy to a gorgeous waist length hairstyle.

I don't generally mind Mondays, but this one was a bit on the frazzled side for me so I'll be happy to greet a new day instead. I was hoping for clearer medical advice from a doctor, rather than repeats of what others have said pretty much word for word, but I am trying to remain hopeful. Speaking of hope, I do hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Westside OG at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! Tonight we get to see the latest Fish 4 This fishing set at Sn@tch, which is called Westside OG. Ivey came up with an edgy look with plenty of pieces to combine in several different ways, a handful of which you can see below. There are 22 total parts to fish for with your 7 Seas rod, which you can purchase there if you don't already have one (it lasts forever and can be reused infinitely, no bait needed if you use the casual rod so no additional costs) and there is a new set at Sn@tch to fish for every two weeks or so. Okay, so what can we find in the "waters" there right now? There are 7 colors of a jacket/tee combo, plus a version with just the open jacket without a tee beneath, each in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. There are also 2 pairs of denim shorts in system or Omega, and a pair of stockings you can layer beneath them in system or an Omega applier. For our feet, a fun pair of combat boots, and there is a choker to accessorize the outfit. We can also catch a great lipstick in system layer and Omega applier versions, and since every outfit needs a crowning glory there is a terrific hair in two sizes, plus a HUD with 10 colors to choose from. Remember, the pieces we catch are always transferable so you can swap with friends to complete your set faster, and I have Xan to thank as always for his patient assistance ♥.


This hairstyle is a perfect choice for the clothing, since it is casual but definitely stylish. It is called Sn@tch Alice Hair in Naturals, and comes in two sizes so you can get a great fit for your classic or mesh head. I love that it is sleek but not completely straight, with those soft curls at the ends for added texture. The jacket/tee combinations are called Sn@tch Westside Jacket & Tee, with the Army color shown on the left and Oxblood on the right. I am also wearing the Sn@tch Westside Shorts in Black, using the Omega applier that has both black and blue shades on it. 


I love this pose for this one, it's like I'm saying, "OMG Look, I fished up some cool boots!" in disbelief ;) Those would be the Sn@tch Westside Combat Boots in Black, each caught separately so be sure to get both. The shorts are the same as the previous photo, and the Sn@tch Westside Jacket & Tee seen here is the Purple version which I am partial towards as one of my favorite colors. 


It is time to see the Teal version of the Westside Jacket & Tee, and I have added the Sn@tch Westside Full Moon Choker which complements the outfit wonderfully. Another addition for this photo is the sexy Sn@tch Westside Latex Stockings in Black, and just look at that texture! There is a lace section at the top, then the front is laced up just like the boots. You could certainly wear different shoes with this outfit, or wear these stockings with something else to show off their fine crafting like a mini skirt or short dress. Sn@tch has plenty of those for sale as well, I know I already have several favorites from them in my inventory.


Next I switched into the Blue color of the Westside Shorts, with the same great cuffs and distressed touch as the black pair. I also am now wearing the Westside Jacket & Tee in White, and you can see how the cross design really stands out against the paleness of the tee here. I even used the hair HUD to choose a platinum, almost white haircolor for variety and to show off the t-shirt.


Here is the Westside Jacket & Tee in Wine, which just so happens to be a fantastic match for the Sn@tch Westside Lipstick that I have added for this final peek of the evening. As you can see in the closer view, it is a very rich shade with a bit of shine, just enough to give your lips a slightly dewy look. I also included a closeup of the Full Moon Choker, that fascinating face ringed by what looks like a pewter braid. This fishing set is so versatile, and I encourage you to wear this your own way, even if that means mixing it with completely different items from your wardrobe or maybe parts of previous Sn@tch fishing sets. One of these days I am going to do that, sit down and see how many outfits I can create by mixing and matching different Sn@tch sets, especially those seasonal Grab Bags she offers sometimes!

It was a pretty tame day here, mostly resting and healing, so I am fairly content :) I have a fairly hyperactive brain sometimes, so many thoughts buzzing about and it can be distracting, so I need to stop and center myself sometimes. Our lives are so full of stimuli these days, constant information from the internet for one thing, and it is nice to focus on something soothing. Second Life is definitely one of my happy places, as I'm sure you guessed. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening and a bright new week ahead, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Free Dove Treats from Alaskametro

Hiya everyone! Tonight is part two of my coverage of the Alaskametro mini hunt at The Free Dove and their mainstore, with a total of 10 perfume bottles to find and click with your Free Dove group tag active. All of last night's prizes were found at The Free Dove, and one of tonight's is there while the other 4 are at alaskametro's mainstore. Don't worry, I will specify as we view all the photos and in the ending credits as well :) I have been a fan of alaskametro's for a long time, so I was definitely excited to find out about this free hunt so everyone can experience the quality for themselves.


If you enjoyed the lingerie I shared yesterday, then you will be happy to know that it can be found in another color at the alaskametro mainstore. One of those hidden perfume bottles holds alaskametro<3 "Betti" lingerie - Autumn, in a rich reddish brown shade that delightfully mimics crisp leaves. It comes in system layers as well as an Omega applier, so it is compatible with classic avatars as well as most mesh bodies. 


Yesterday I showed you the charming alaskametro<3 "Betty" face skin in tone 2, and tonight you get to see Betty in tone 1 (found at Free Dove) which is a lighter shade with 3 brow options plus no-brow versions in system layers or a face applier for Omega, Catwa, and Lelutka. Confession: rent was due this week so I decided against purchasing the body appliers (available at the mainstore) for now, which is why my head does not match the little peek you can still see of my neck and shoulder. I am going to treat myself very soon, we all deserve to do so from time to time :) For now I wanted you to see the delicate beauty which provides a perfect foundation for as little or as much makeup as you wish. That leads to our next photos quite nicely...


These lipstick shades look stunning on the Betty skin, don't they? This is all 3 shades included in the prize called alaskametro<3 "Vintage matte" lipstick, inside one of the perfume bottles found at their main store. There are system layers provided as well as Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega appliers, so most mesh heads will be compatible. They certainly do have a classic feel to them, and the different intensities offer variety for many moods and styles.


Next we focus on our lovely peepers, enhanced by the trio of eyeshadow offerings from alaskametro<3 "Vintage" eyeshadow, another prize found at the mainstore. I am so pleased with these colors, which all flatter my brown eyes and auburn hair, especially the one with a flash of green at the lash line. This prize includes system layers plus Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega appliers for impressive versatility.


One last look of the evening, this prize is found at the alaskametro<3 mainstore and is called "Vintage nude" nail polish. The HUDs included are for Slink, Omega, Maitreya manicure and Maitreya pedicure, and offer 5 designs with French tips, negative space, exposed cuticles, and even an elegantly simple solid nude. These are so creative, and yet relatively subtle in this nude shade, so you can mix them up or enjoy any of these designs individually.

I apologize if I seem a bit subdued tonight, there is something weighing heavy on my heart and mind that I tried to keep from affecting my usually upbeat blogging style and I hope I mostly succeeded. There was a terrible accident (several vehicles, tractor trailer, car engulfed in flames, at least 1 fatality) at the intersection where we turn every week, about half an hour after we passed through it safely. We could see the flames and smoke from the farmers market, really upsetting and scary. My parents called because they encountered the road being closed when they left the market, and now I'm just grateful they left when they did instead of a bit earlier. I know these things happen every day, and far worse, it just was too close to home for me today. I hope you're all having a fun, relaxing, and safe weekend, with magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Alaskametro at Free Dove

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to show you some of the prizes from Alaskametro at The Free Dove, which are hidden inside pretty pink perfume bottles in The Free Dove and a few at alaskametro's mainstore. You just need to have your Free Dove group tag active (free to join) and give all the perfume bottles a click, to receive some fantastic prizes. The ones tonight are all found at The Free Dove, and tomorrow I will be featuring the ones found at the alaskametro mainstore. Are you ready to see what made me feel so beautiful today?


This first look is a stunning lingerie set called alaskametro<3 "Betti" lingerie - Forest, and it is included in system layers and an Omega applier. There are intricate straps, sheer panels, and sections of luxurious lace that all combine into an alluring ensemble.


I do love a pretty lipstick, and this prize happens to offer 3 different hues of lip gloss to make your smile even more special. It is called alaskametro<3 "Vintage gloss" lipstick, and inside this perfume bottle you will find system makeup layers along with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega. They look so shimmery, the lighter two in particular seem to have an almost iridescent quality to them that is really gorgeous. 


With our lips freshly adorned, we can't leave out our nails, now can we? They deserve some loving too, and this hunt prize will provide alaskametro<3 "Vintage Coral" nail polish in HUDs for Slink, Omega, and Maitreya manicure and pedicures. There are 5 designs with variations of negative space manicures, as well as solid and French manicure styles. They are all so elegant, it may be hard to choose.


When you find this perfume bottle, you can claim the alaskametro<3 "Vintage Red" nail polish set, in the same stunning designs as the coral set above. It also comes in appliers for Slink, Omega, and Maitreya manicure and pedicures, so all your tips are covered in whichever style catches your fancy. This is such a rich shade of red, it is a timeless classic that is well suited to the vintage flavor of these gifts.


One very special treat you can find in these perfume bottles is a new skin by alaskametro, offered as system skins and an applier for faces only. So my mesh head is happily displaying alaskametro<3 "Betty" face skin Tone 2, a delicate porcelain complexion with subtle shading that will look terrific on a wide range of shapes and Bento heads. There are 3 brow choices and a tintable system tattoo brow layer for classic avatar heads, and the applier offers Omega, Catwa, and Lelutka compatibility with 3 brow options or browless as well. I am wearing the medium brows, which I think match my auburn locks quite well. The bare makeup of this skin allows you to add your favorites from your inventory, or pick up some of alaskametro's high quality lips, eyes, and more at her store to enhance this look and make it your own. For mesh bodies, you can purchase matching body appliers there as well of course.

The weekend is here, and I am ready for a busy but hopefully enjoyable one. My plans will include another episode or two of Stranger Things season 2, and the usual farmers market in the morning, along with some fairly dull errand type things. I hope you all have something wonderful planned, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
