Get To Know Melange

Hiya everyone! I spent an enjoyable morning taking part in a treasure hunt, and now I get to show you my booty...hmm I may wish to rephrase that a bit...the hunt is called Get To Know MELANGE Hunt, and is a storewide search for treasure chests that disappear and reappear at random times. Some have free prizes (the aforementioned booty I get to share), some can reward you with lindens if you answer a trivia question about the store correctly (so far I have not done so, LOL) and some do not seem to disappear but contain $5L prizes you can buy. When you land, it looks like you are in a mall but it is actually the various departments of the Melange store, and be sure to head downstairs while seeking treasures as well. Hovertext will tell you if it is a $5L prize or a free one, but so will clicking since the free ones will distribute a gift and the 5 linden ones will tell you how to right click and pay to receive those surprises. The clothing prizes I am showing you tonight are all Omega appliers, but there are others that are for classic avatars only but contained tango/phatazz appliers. There are even shoes, makeup, and hair, so a very nice selection of the things they offer for sale at Melange.


First up, this is an Omega applier prize called =Torn Bunny= and consists of the fun tank top and shredded jeans. Because it was such a terrific match, I decided to show the lipstick I found in another treasure chest, DeLa' de la Beaute' Cotton Candy Lipgloss. It is a system layer and is from a division of the Melange brand, and you can tell from the inset that there is a lovely shimmer to the color.


This sexy outfit is called =Secret Skulls V.1= and is on an Omega applier for the top and bottom. There are lots of fun details here, with the buckles and rivets and straps, and you can see from the rear view that it is a bit low on the bum for extra sex appeal. I guess my bad pun about treasure chests and booty was actually a bit accurate after all ;) 


Maybe you are more of a gingham, earth tones kind of person, well this =Grungified Country= Omega Set might be just what you're looking for. I wonder what it says about me that it reminds me of both Burberry colors and Harley Davidson colors.


Since I am a big fan of pink and black together, this prize particularly appealed to me and is probably my favorite of the day. The treasure chest distributed an Omega applier without a folder or box, so it has the same name as all their Omega appliers (Me'LanGe's Omega Advanced Applier - Combo Outfit) as all the other HUDs I have to share tonight. I cannot tell the original name of this outfit, but what I can tell you is that I cammed in closer and the shirt says Love Is... and DREAMS across the center, and a circle on the right says Smile and is surrounded by the words Laugh, Pout, Smirk, and Pose. There are flattering pockets on the back of the jeans, as well as the pink ombre on both legs.


One last look for tonight, this is another great Omega HUD from another treasure chest that was already unpacked with no folder, so the actual name of the outfit is a mystery. It includes a bandana style top and cute low-waist denim shorts which have some intriguing seams as part of the nice texture. When you are ready for summer or wish to visit somewhere warm in SL, this outfit will be an excellent choice.

You may have noticed that I did play a bit more with the two-tone aspect of my gacha hair prize from Doe @ Memento Mori, the lovely braided and ponytailed Christine. One side I chose a darker ash blonde and the other, softest strawberry, to provide some contrast and show off the swirl of braids even better. Tomorrow maybe I will show off some tinted tips. 

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

Time For Battle at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! I have been very busy fishing at Sn@tch for their latest Fish 4 This set, which is called Time For Battle. It consists of a sweater in 5 colors in system layers plus an Omega applier, a pair of belted pants in system and Omega with separate cuffs, buckled boots, a tattoo in system and Omega, and even some coordinating black makeup in system layers (one for the eyes and one for the lips) and an Omega applier. Don't worry, above the fish tank at Sn@tch is a photo with all that listed, 22 pieces in total, and you can purchase the whole set if you choose not to fish for it instead. If you do feel like hanging out and fishing, you will need a 7 Seas fishing rod which can be reused endlessly, so a very worthwhile investment. The sets at Sn@tch are changed out every 2 weeks or so, you have over a week left for this set and the parts are all transferable so you can use teamwork to swap spares and collect the set faster.


For my first look, I have used the Omega HUD for the Sn@tch Battle Sweater in Black, one of the 5 colors on that HUD. It is paired with the Sn@tch Badass Pants in Black, which have that terrific belt built right into the texture (as do the sweaters). The sweaters and pants are merely the foundation of this wonderful set.


Next we have the Battle Sweater in Red, which really shows the contrast of the belting and buckles and zipper that are all part of the texture. As you can see, the pants look wonderful with it and I have added the cuffs which are each a separate part to fish up. If you want to wear these pants with shoes rather than the boots, the cuffs give it a more finished look. 


For my next look, I have added the boots which are more parts you can fish up, the Bam Stomper Boots in Velvet which also have the matching alpha layer and shoe base to catch. They are really quite impressive with their thick sole and bold buckles. I have switched to the sweater in Plum for this photo as well.


Here you can see that same amazing sweater but in Army, and a better view of the boots from behind. The velvet texture is most noticeable on the back of the boots, so you deserved to see that look too :) They are a perfect example of the attention to detail found in all of Sn@tch's products.


Last but certainly not least, this is the lovely Teal version of the Battle Sweater, and I have added our Mayhem Tattoo from the Omega applier (there is a system layer to catch as well) as well as the makeup from this fun set. The lipstick and the eye makeup are both black, separate system layers but both on the Omega applier for mesh heads. I remember seeing the Mayhem tattoo on so many Sn@tch vendor photos over time, it is a privilege to be able to wear it too.

Hair note of the night: I headed over to Memento Mori for a Doe hair gacha called Christine, and as you can see above I got it in Blondes. It is two tone but I wound up applying the same color to both sides, next time I will probably try two different shades to show you all. Just $80L a pull, and there are some really lovely possibilities to win. I'm sure Xan was just amused by my continuing braid obsession ;)

Well it has been quite a weekend, packed with things to do and people to see. I am ready for a brand new week and I hope all of you have a terrific one, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Free Dove Hunt - Emerald Couture

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have another of the January hunts at Free Dove, this time from Emerald Couture. Their hunt will have you searching for tiny emeralds (green gems) for the men and little versions of their other logo (pear cut emerald with a head/hat, arms and legs, please see sign in Free Dove) for the women's prizes. There are 10 total, I believe it was 2 mens' and 8 womens' gifts hiding in there total. I am very familiar with their work from a long history of gridwide hunt participation as well as their two Advent calendars each year, so I am grateful to see them providing even more generous gifts for Free Dove visitors.


This first fun look is EC Kawaii Ariel, and I do feel like a playful mermaid turned human in this prize from #8 in the hunt. The dress is provided in plenty of sizes to fit a wide range of sizes and bodies: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Maitreya, and Slink, and the matching shoes are included in a Slink size and an unrigged version you can adjust to suit your needs. I enjoyed the colors, and the details like the cute bows and the scale texture.


I actually have blogged this outfit before as part of a Doctor Who themed hunt early last year, but the fun part is that you have another chance to find this hunt prize if you missed the initial opportunity last year :) This Who's Who Outfit is a single mesh piece in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and I am still so taken with that little TARDIS hiding on the back.


This softly feminine dress with coordinating sandals is from prize #4, EC Pastel Gem Party Dress and Sandals. The frilly dress comes in 5 standard, 4 fitmesh, Maitreya and Slink sizes, while the sandals have a version for Slink flat as well as unrigged pair so you can adjust them. In RL they say it's 5 o'clock somewhere, well I say in SL it's spring somewhere and you can wear this beautiful outfit in comfort no matter what the RL weather reflects.


This elegant look reminds me of a womanly take on a tuxedo, sharp and stylish. Find the Free Dove prize #3 to claim this EC Zebra Night, consisting of system/applier dress with mesh skirt panels and even the shoes and earrings. The applier HUD provides Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and Belleza compatibility, and the skirt panels come in standard sizes. The shoes come in two versions, a Slink High fit and an unrigged pair so you can adjust them however you wish.


This last look made me chuckle, as it made me feel like a whimsical showgirl. This is prize #1 called EC Sexy Turkey Outfit Teal N Peach, and there are several parts so you could wear all or just some for the look you prefer. The bodysuit comes in system layers along with an applier HUD for Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and Belleza. The shoes are for Slink High, and the various attachments include the tail, cuffs, and neck feathers. No jewelry really needed with this look, unless you leave off some of the feathers. If anyone is familiar with any Philadelphia traditions, I feel like I am ready for an adult version of the Mummers parade!

I hope you are all getting more sleep than I have so far this weekend, hehe, but most of all I hope you're enjoying yours too. The indoor farmers market I visit each Saturday was extremely crowded, perhaps with snow in the forecast people wanted to get there early and get various prepared foods to enjoy a weekend indoors. It is delightful to visit with such caring and talented people each week, scarf down countless samples they insist on providing, and helping small local businesses by purchasing a variety of treats. Have a great day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Designer Showcase Anniversary Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more gifts to share from the Designer Showcase 6th anniversary round. All you need to do is join their free VIP group and wear your tag to claim gifts from just about every designer participating. I enjoy visiting to see what exclusive offers are there, in addition to the generous gifts this round. I also had fun with a very short hairstyle which is one of the two styles in this month's Truth Hair VIP gift.


The first thing I usually wind up doing after a big change to my hair (and I suspect most of us do) is head for a mirror and inspect it from various angles. So I am in the bathroom of my skybox, feeling the lightness and the crisp ends. I decided to try on the very pretty gift from zanze, their [ZE] Eirwen Sweater in Red which comes in sizes for Slink, Hourglass, and Maitreya. I am also holding the lovely purse from Ghee, their Sequined Purse which looks to be an exclusive for the event. With shades of black and white, it will be a versatile addition to your wardrobe.


Then I decided to go even more casual, the comfy cozy 1 Hundred Pullover Set in Grey. This amused me because one of the HUDs (multiple tabs with several appliers on each, chances are your mesh parts are represented) has NP in the name and I thought it stood for no pockets...turned out to be no panties :) That version is on the right, the one with panties on the left, on both sides I am also wearing the sculpted hood which has a resize script built in. Besides the two HUDs, there are system layers for the classic avatar lovers as well. I am wearing one of my favorite marketplace gifts with these shirts by the way, the Delizio Jeans which come in several colors and with HUDs for Maitreya and Omega along with their system layers. 


Sometimes we need something pretty to wear beneath our new outfits, or if you are staying home with someone special, instead of ;) This thought led me to the beautiful Princess Lingerie #02 which is our gift from Danemark Z, in system layers as well as an Omega applier. The peachy pink color is stunning, and the little details like the soft lace and tiny bows are especially nice. I also decided to try on the remarkable gift from Moondance Boutique, their Nancy Earrings and Necklace. These beauties can be adjusted to match any outfit, just by clicking either earring or the necklace to bring up their very handy menu which offers 17 colors for each set of gems (inner and outer in this case, you can see that better in the inset) and 8 metal options including less traditional choices like crimson. Endless possibilities, and a resize menu too! 


Another jazzy dress and even more jewelry, here I have tried on the KiB Creations gift of Serenity Lace Dress Teal, in a gorgeous color and texture. It is included in 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass sizes. The amazing jewelry set you see here is one of two gifts from J&W Jewelers, called Journey's Collection Amethyst. It includes the necklace, earrings, bracelet, and a ring for the right hand, each with resize scripts. The other gift is a different style altogether and in pink, well worth checking out.


It looks like I am finally ready to go, in our gift from Evolve Industries called Merry Dress which comes in small, medium, and large mesh sizes. The colors are a wonderful match for the present from LEGENDAIRE called Aishas Gift, consisting of the shoes for Slink high and the matching clutch you see here in 2 versions with different hold poses. I also have included a closer look at my nails, yet another group gift for the Designer Showcase VIP group. This is from BAXE and called My Heart, a HUD for Slink nails with 4 bold designs in red and gold. 

Quick skin note: I am enjoying the current group gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins called Madelief, in a new skin tone named Cotton Candy. It included several appliers including Omega, which suits my Slink body/hands/feet quite well. Since I am playing with a blonde shade for my hair, I thought the lighter skin tone was a natural match.

Running late tonight, stayed at a visit to my family longer than I expected and it threw my timing off this evening I'm afraid. It was worth it, I had a very nice time :) I hope this weekend holds wonders for each of you, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Happy Anniversary Designer Showcase

Hiya everyone! Designer Showcase is celebrating their 6th Anniversary with their current round, which runs until the end of January, and nearly every designer there is offering a gift for the VIP group members. The VIP group is free to join, and there are plenty of exclusive designs offered for sale along with the great free gifts. So why are you still here when you could be visiting Designer Showcase already? :) Oh right, because you would like to see a sneak peek of a few gifts, well I can provide those...


This sexy dress is our gift from KC (short for Kendrasy Creations) and is appropriately named Zebra Rose. It is provided in several sizes, including eBODY, Maitreya, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. My lovely collar style necklace is from PurpleMoon Creations, their PM Imani Necklace Designer Circle Edition. It looks amazing with this dress, but will pair wonderfully with your favorite outfits too.


Snowpaws has a terrific gift for us as well, their Segalle Halter Dress - OJ. I believe this was labeled as an original mesh creation, and I greatly enjoy both the halter style and the high slits on each side of the skirt. It comes in 5 standard and 5 fitmesh sizes, so you should be able to find a nice fit for your personal shape and body.


This dramatic, elegant gown is waiting for you at the {AnaMarkova} display at Designer Circle, their generous group gift called Amanda Rouge. It is provided in standard sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, and Physique. This would be a fun opportunity to show off a subtle back tattoo since this gown would show it off and frame it in crimson.


Speaking of dramatic looks, this gift from Artizana certainly fits that description too! Meet their Kiasi (Shark) Dress + Mesh Appliers, which does include system layers and a TMP HUD plus a multi-HUD for Lolas, Phatazz, WowMeh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The mesh skirt panel comes in 5 standard sizes and 5 Slink sizes which might refer to being fitted mesh. If you have a visit to a club planned, I highly recommend this stunner.


If you have noticed my nails in these photos and were curious, have I got news for you...these are our gift from Entice awaiting at Designer Showcase. They are called Simple Life Nails and their HUD works for Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and Belleza so nails for just about every hand out there. There are 6 colors, each divided by a pale gold band with what looks to be beads across it, and the colors themselves have a slight marble look so there is a lot going on in these beauties. The black got a lot of use for this post, and I am particularly fond of both shades of purple too.

Another busy day, about to kick off a busy weekend, but I am hoping that it will be better than last weekend. For one thing, the weather doesn't appear ready to dump any snow on my head, LOL, and I am still enjoying the extra chances to spend time with family. We all seem to be healing or recovering from something, which is positive in the long run. Have a beautiful day/evening everyone, magical magpie hugs to all!!

Fabulous and Free

Hiya everyone! I realized it had been several weeks since I shared any group gifts from the FabFree (that's short for Fabulously Free in SL) group and I had noticed several new gifts being posted lately. Therefore I decided it was time :) There is a list on their blog of the various designers and their gifts, but because I didn't stay on top of going regularly to pick things up, I discovered a few no longer available and even a store or two who have moved. There are so many generous gifts to discover, I hope you enjoy the selection as much as I do. The group is free to join, and you can learn about so many freebies and bargains throughout SL from them.


My first look is this amazing gift from *Glitter*, their Angel Corset With Feathers Tail in Nude, which also includes a matching pair of mesh panties. There are standard mesh sizes for each, and the color has a lovely pink tint so it would stand out against most skin tones really well. Those feathers, the fringe in the front, the lacing and bow in the back, such details! This could be very handy if you visit or work in a club with theme nights, as I did once upon a time in my SL youth ;) It was probably 2009 or so, there was dancing and a great DJ, and we had themes each night so I had a lot of fun choosing costumes from my lucky chair prize collections and such. Fond memories.


Head over to [satus Inc] and you can claim this terrific free gift for the FabFree group, just wear your tag and click the board and you will receive their Isla Cutout Flare Dress in Green. It is provided in 8 fitmesh sizes, including Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, so you should get a great fit no matter what size or body you prefer. The soft color is flattering with my auburn hair, but would complement your favorite shade as well.


Snowpaws is offering this stunning Paige Dress in Two Tone Blue for us lucky FabFree members. They have moved since the list was compiled, but a quick search landed me in their new location where I gladly collected this beautiful dress in standard mesh sizes. The deep colors made me think of the ocean, probably helped by the satiny texture. 
**EDIT** Shortly after publishing this, I saw that a new gift is listed for Snowpaws instead, so this may not be the current gift when you arrive but I will revisit and share the new gift soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!!


I also visited Entice in my travels, where I clicked their Midnight Mania boards (a good habit to get into because those prizes are always terrific!) and claimed the current FabFree gift, their Blank Space Dress - Magenta. The sparkles in the texture make me wonder if the creator was referring to outer space and stars a tiny bit in the name, but yes I realize it's probably named for the song. This comes in standard sizes, and the low slung belt is built in. Lovely as always :)


Hello Dave has 3 generous gifts for FabFree members, three different takes on a subtle color palette of 5 pastels. On the left side (my right hand) you can see the nails I wore in all the photos above, Fab Free Cuticle Glitz, with the tiny line of silver at each cuticle. On the right side, those are the 5 shades from Fab Free Fairy French which has a nice gloss and a soft wash from white tips to pastel bases. I love her manicures and these are no exception. Each HUD is compatible with Omega as well as Slink.

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

MH Unique Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! I apologize for no blog post yesterday, it was a hardware problem with my computer. A fan had died and when the replacement arrived, I trusted someone to install it for me but they ignored the main thing someone else advised them (be sure to line up the arrows) and therefore it was installed wrong. It sounded like I was sitting in an airplane hangar, I could even hear it in the next room with both doors shut. A couple of hours and a frantic phone call later, I was and am still short one working fan. At least now my computer is hooked up though :) So here I am with some fun group gifts from MH Unique, which is free to join and there are about 2 dozen gifts waiting for their group members. It is very generous, and the gifts range from standard mesh sizes, system layers, appliers for various bodies, and even a couple that are intended for mesh bodies only, so whether you are a mesh body fan or classic avatar lover, you can find gifts to satisfy those needs.


This first gift I am showing you is beautifully geared towards mesh and classic bodies, and is called MH Denim Dress Blue. It includes a classic fitmesh size and alpha layer, along with sizes for Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, eBODY, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The texture of that ribbon in the front with zipper peeking out between is lovely, and the stitching on the back pockets show more attention to detail.


I must admit, this outfit has me longing for summer again even more than I already was from the single digit temperatures (F, not C degrees!) outside in RL. It is their gift called MH Outfit Jeans & Top and is another fun find that works for classic or mesh bodies. The jeans are actually these cute denim shorts, and the top comes in black, blue, green, pink, and purple (green and purple shown above). Each is included in system layers, plus appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP so they are quite versatile.


I felt so cute in this set, another nod to warmer climates or just the great indoors. For these fantastic looks, I have paired two different gifts that each provide several colors to choose from, so much versatility. The top is the MH Andromeda Top, system layers and appliers for TMP, Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega for pink, purple, red, and yellow. The adorable skirt which I am very fond of is their MH Jenny Skirt which comes in standard sizes (medium fit me perfectly, no body alpha-ing needed) for each color: azul, pink (left above), purple, and turquoise (above right). They reminded me of ombre, and of eyelet lace from my childhood. Love!!


The colors from this pretty MH Daria Dress Dotty made me think of Neapolitan ice cream, I blame the colors :) This short dress with sexy crossed straps comes in standard mesh sizes, and I had no trouble whatsoever with my Slink Physique body working just fine with it. There is an alpha layer provided for the classic avatars, too.


One last look for tonight, this jumpsuit is really intriguing with its bold pattern and how different it looks from the front or the back. This is their MH Jasmyn Jumpsuit and is included in system layers plus appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega. There are four different colors inside, black shown on the left and blue on the right, along with pink and yellow. That back with those peekaboo straps up top and beneath are really eye catching, this is a great statement outfit in any color you choose.

Hair note of the night: this is one of the two styles included in January's VIP Group gift from Truth Hair, called Kati. The group has a fee to join, but if you are a fan of Truth's work as I am, it is well worth it for the amazing monthly gifts (two exclusive styles, fatpacks of each) and bonuses like early admission to sales, etc.

Busy week, but I am here as much as possible, still searching the grid for free or inexpensive goodies to show all of you :) This is not a big month for hunts, but February should be because of Valentines Day so I am looking forward to that. I hope you are all having a wonderful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
