Moonbeams and Blossoms

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


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


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


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


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


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

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

Moonstar By The Sea

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


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


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


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


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


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

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

Moonstar Celebration

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


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


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


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


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


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

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

Happy Birthday Hunt

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


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


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


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


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

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

Third Life Treats

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


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


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


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


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


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

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

The Gacha Life

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


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


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


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


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


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

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

Enchantress

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


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


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


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


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


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

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