Weekend Wash and Boho Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some more Wash Cart Sale selections to show you, from their Spring has Sprung round that is open until the 10th of April. Each designer's cart has up to 6 items at $10L each, 6 items for $25L, and one for $50L, so there is a great variety of discounts at various prices. I also have a few more Boho Hunt prizes for you to see, which are $1L each and found inside tiny white llamas with a pink and blue pattern. I had such a good time with this hunt since that is one of my favorite fashion themes in both SL and RL.


First we visit the .::battle fairy::. cart at The Wash, the sim which is also the home of their mainstore. On the left I am enjoying their Kate Tank Top in Clematis and the Kate Skort in Clematis, each of which are just $10L. They include Hourglass, Physique, and Maitreya sizes for each, and that pretty pattern on the front of the top appears on its back as well. The skort is one of those clever crosses between shorts and a skirt, and spring is an ideal time to wear it. On the right I am wearing their fun Lydia Set in Tiger, one of several varieties on their cart for $25L apiece. It includes the dress with front zipper daringly descending, in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, plus the matching wedge heels for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High.


Artic Storm's cart is another must-visit, where among their delightful offerings you might choose their *AS* Cece Dress Teal (above left), one of several colors available for $25L each. It includes the dress and a pantyliner for modesty, each in 5 standard mesh sizes, 5 fitmesh, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. Or maybe their *AS* Yummy Bear Purple Pansies, a cozy knit outfit in a classic fitted size along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. It also includes a pair of matching panties, in the same sizes except 5 fitmesh standard instead of the single classic fitted of the dress. All that is just $10L, quite the bargain! Their mainstore is also found on The Wash sim, and the cart's link is in my ending credits as usual.


This Boho hunt prize from BoHo Valkyrja really tickled me, with its range of throwback patterns. It is named BV Free Spirit, and comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya. Also included as you probably guessed, is a HUD that offers 12 texture choices like the two shown above, all with a Bohemian 70s vibe. The panel in the middle of the skirt stays the same, with the black/grey paisley and white lace. I can't resist mentioning how fun it is that the store's name correlates to the name of the hunt so well, I would imagine they were really pleased to take part in this hunt :)


Another hunt prize that caught my attention was this strapless mini from Cats n' Kittens Boutique called All About That Boho Mini [hunt], which had me humming All About That Bass of course ;) This dress is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh sizes, all with that intriguing texture in bold colors.


My final look of the evening is another Boho hunt prize, the zOOm - Boho Hunt dress. This is a flirty choice with the bare back and shoulders, and the short hemline, but certainly fits the hippie feeling with the lace and floral print. It comes in Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya versions. Just find the cute little llama and you can claim this cutie!

It was a long and tiring day here, with a bit of an adventure at the dentist since one filling turned into two. Now I'm having trouble with the filling material (composite?) messing up my bite, so I'll have to go back in to have it adjusted. Who doesn't love going to the dentist 3 times in a week? LOL! If I can't get squeezed in this morning, it might have to wait until Tuesday, so I would just have to be really careful to eat only soft foods. It's not the end of the world, just a hassle that will be all better soon. I hope you all have a glorious weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Sweet Bohemian Spring

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have many exciting things to see, and we will start with a visit to The Wash Cart Sale. I have been a longtime fan of their cart sales, and the Spring is Sprung round with new pricing (up to 6 items at $10L each, 6 at $25L each, and 1 at $50L) brings a fresh feeling for the new season. Then we make a quick stop at Candyland, which ends in a few days which is why we need to hurry :) There are exclusive discounted offers, one of which I am showing off tonight, as well as free gifts for group members, so this is an opportunity you do not want to miss. Then we wrap up the post with some more Boho Hunt prizes, just $1L each and hiding inside white llamas with a blue/pink design. You can see a photo of the hunt object on their website, and find the landmarks and hints there while you're viewing it.


Our first visit at The Wash is the Mishmash Fusion cart, where you can find several varieties of the ~MF~ Interlude Outfit, like the Iris you can see on the left above, only $10L a piece. It comes in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and wears as a single piece. Very cute! On the right I am enjoying the ~MF~ Someday Mini Dress in Garnet, one of the many color choices on the cart for $25L each. It is included in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and has great details like the belt with suspenders, lacy skirt layer, and neck strap that looks like a choker. You can visit the Mishmash Fusion mainstore by clicking here, and the link in my ending credits is your limo directly to this cart and all these bargains.

Savoha Creations has some wonderful choices at their cart, so I randomly chose these beauties to share. On the left I am wearing their Elegant Flower Dress, on the right is the Red Dress in the same style, and they are each just $10L at The Wash. They each include sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique, with the intriguing draped front and gathered bust with thigh high slit. The link to their main store (also on The Wash sim) is here, and my credits at the end will bring you directly to their cart.

Time to head over to Candyland, where you can find sweet treats for deeply discounted prices. This adorable Candy Top & Shorts are from Sweet Intoxication, and you can purchase the fatpack of both for $315L (75% discount) or get the fatpack of tops for $270L, fatpack of shorts for $360L which are 50% discounts. If you prefer to pick up a few individual tops or pairs of shorts, those are just $68L a pop. The fatpacks include a HUD with 6 textures for the top or 8 for the shorts, and both pieces come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. 

Boho Hunt time, which gives us the opportunity to grab this fantastic prize from The Sissy Bar for only $1L once we find that llama. It consists of the top in Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes, plus the skirt in versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The skirt has that fun transition from denim to tropical fabric, so the simple white of the shirt is a perfect pairing.

My final look this evening is the hunt prize from Lady Dragons Design called Gypsy, a striking strapless jumpsuit with sheer midriff. That wild animal print is sure to turn heads as well. The prize includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.

Today went a little more smoothly than I expected *whew!* and the hockey game I watched tonight made me happy, so I am feeling fairly contented, other than the anxiety about tomorrow's dental work. The tooth has been bothering me, so it will be a relief to have it taken care of, see I am still trying to find all the positives. Meanwhile I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Spring Has Sprung in Boho Fashion

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am elated to start showing you some selections from The Wash Cart Sale, whose Spring Has Sprung round began today (the 20th) and goes until the 10th of April. On each cart you will find offers for $10L, $25L, and a $50L special, which are all discounted over their usual retail prices. There are several dozen designers taking part, so you can find quite a variety of clothing, accessories, home decor, and more. I also have a dollarbie gridwide hunt that I'll be showing you some of their prizes, the Boho Hunt which runs until the end of the month. You'll be seeking tiny llamas, white with a blue and pink pattern on them, by using the hints on the hunt's website. There are some sneak peeks of the prizes on there too, so you can get ideas of what the llamas can hold.


The first cart at The Wash sale we're visiting is Ciara's, where among the $10L selections you can find the CCW Summer Overall Shorts in Concert Grey which I'm wearing on the left, or you could choose the Peace Green Light on the right. There are other varieties too, each of which include Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. I love this style and have already been happily wearing one of them while gridwide hunting. You can visit the Ciara's store by clicking here, and the link in my ending credits whisks you directly to their cart at The Wash.


Next we visit the Dark Water Designs cart, where there are several colors of their DWD Off Shoulder Dress for sale for just $25L each, like the Lilac one I am wearing on the left above. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, and is just right for spring. On the right I chose one of the $10L offers, DWD - Cocktail One Piece, Midori, one of several flavors for sale. Each includes a print (shown) and solid version, sizes for eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is even a notecard with a cocktail recipe inside! Midori is such a tasty melon liqueur with a beautiful color, and I have funny memories of my dad serving it mixed with orange juice at family barbecues. To visit the Dark Water Designs mainstore you can click here, and the ending credits has the link that will bring you right to their cart for these special bargains.


Now it's time for us to explore the Boho Hunt, starting with NUTS Inc where I was able to claim this terrific Dawn Outfit, no relation LOL. There is also a mens prize on the same delivery HUD, and all you need to do is click the logo for the body you wear. The bra, lace shirt, pants, and heels come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The colors are so eye-catching, and the flowers make it extra seasonal.


I kept the NUTS Inc pants on to show you this terrific shirt from <Trashed> called Boho Babe. It is provided in sizes for eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin Classic, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. It reads Boho Babe on the front, beneath a colorful feathery arrow. 


The pants from NUTS Inc go just as well with the prize from { ViVi }, which is called Beaded Boho Tank - Beige. It comes in system layers plus an applier for Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and *KL* Lena, with a knit design on the back and beaded fringe around the bottom hem. It is a fun coincidence that the beads on the fringe match the pants so well, with teal and pink shades, but this top will go with many different styles of pants or skirts.

I feel frazzled because I have so many things planned for the next few days (RL), so I have to plan things in SL very carefully. It is challenging, but things have a way of working out in the long run. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

LIVIA Lips and Liaison Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit the Liaison Collaborative event, where you can find exclusive offers and some gifts for their anniversary round until the 26th. Their group is free to join, and most of the gifts are set for group members to be able to claim them (a few were set for sale for $0L so anyone could claim) and there are lots of great home decor type treats among them. However, as I usually do, I am focusing on fashion :) Take a stroll around, you will find some of the gifts at the individual displays and others in the central area where my landmark will land you. We will also be visiting the Skin Fair tonight, in their final week (it closes on the 24th) so the crowds are considerably less, but the offerings are still fantastic. The LIVIA display has two exclusive offers among their many selections, and tonight you'll be seeing the lip gloss in all of my images with a closeup at the end.


My first look is the Liaison Collective group gift from Frida called Kitty Noon, and it comes in a single mesh size that fit my Maitreya body perfectly. The soft color is a fun choice for our cartoon cat with the sweet face and blushing cheeks.


My next look is another Liaison gift, the [Canimal] Paradise Pink Camo. It features great colors and white trim, with lace at the neckline for an extra touch of femininity. It is provided in a single size that fit my Maitreya body just right, so just like the first gift I shared in that respect. I was intrigued by how the shorts part has a casual feel, but the halter tank top part adds pizazz. 


For something more formal, please pick up the Liaison gift from Valentina E. which is their Valeria Gown Rose Hazel. It is included in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a built in belt and great earth-tone colors. 


You can also find this lovely Mindi Shirt - Vintage from [KoKoLoReS] among the anniversary gifts at Liaison. It is provided in sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Hourglass Petite, and Physique Petite, with a deep scooped neckline and long sleeves. I love the floral pattern, and the colors caught my eye as well. This top will look just as chic with a skirt or dressier pants as it does with these jeans from Delizio. You can find them on the marketplace as a free gift, in system layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega with several different colors included.


Time to head to the Skin Fair and get your gloss on :) In all of the photos I am wearing various shades of the LIVIA::Goddess Gloss, which you will only find there at Skin Fair so you'll want to visit this week. There are demos available (always a plus!) and there are 3 different color sets that each consist of 7 shades. You can pick up the full set for $345L, or an individual set for $139L, in your choice of Genus, Catwa, Omega, LAQ, or Vista appliers. I am a huge fan of gloss, and this wide range of colors is a fantastic opportunity to smile with extra shine. The first set has bright colors, the second set leans towards pale shades, and set #3 is full of bold hues. My inset has one from each set, 1 and 2 and 3 from top to bottom, as a fun sampling. If choosing is too hard (as it was for me!) the full set is a discount over buying them all individually. The LIVIA mainstore link is in my right sidebar as always, and the ending credits will bring you directly to the event where your map's beam can lead you right to the display.

I had my blood drawn (we're just trying to see if my thyroid has decided to function any better, and check a few other things like iron for my anemia) and then tomorrow is my day off before more appointments and plans. It will be strenuous but worth it when Sunday is finally here and I can unwind again, with goodies from Saturday and a sense of accomplishment. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Spread Your Wings with Twisted

Hiya everyone! Tonight is another trip along the Twisted hunt path, for their Spring 2019 round which lasts the entire month of March. The theme is Divine, and the color is Golden, which is why the cubes are a bright yellowy metallic hue. If you join the group, you can ask for hints, and reading over their website first is very helpful. Click the easels at any store you visit who has one, for information about special sales, gachas, and side hunts they may be offering. The designers really get into the spirit of this hunt, which makes it so enjoyable. Quite a few prizes involve wings, which inspired my post title tonight.


My first look is comprised of several different gifts found at Grey's Mind Maze, where there are a total of 5 gifts for the ladies and 1 for the men. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The armwarmers (single size), wings, and necklace are in other cubes, and there is a headdress/mask not shown. I really appreciate the galaxy pattern, which looks beautiful against the golden cube texture.


..::Flairity::.. is offering a main prize and 5 side hunt prizes for us to find and appreciate. The main prize is their Divine Angel Dress & Shawl, with the dress in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, plus the shawl in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits. The side hunt goodies include the Divine Angel Ear Cuffs, Halo, Wings, Shoes (Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Mid sizes) and a pair of earrings, which are not shown. I figured it was best to feature either the ear cuffs or the earrings but not both, so you aren't left wondering where one leaves off and the other begins :)


Maybe you were hoping for something more revealing, well the prize from Candy's Designs has got you (un)covered! This is their Itty Bitty Latex Bikini Heavenly, and includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is also a HUD provided with dozens of colors to choose from, so you can tint this to just about any color. Also part of the prize are the halo and wings you see here, which my windlight settings are making look especially luminous.


MI.CO has two gifts in separate cubes for you to find, one of which contains this dramatic Twisted Hunt Exclusive Gift. It comes in fitmesh standard sizes along with Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, and is a snowy white with an attached golden belt. You'll notice that in addition to an open back, there are revealing drapes over each hip.


The other prize from MI.CO is their Victoria Asymetric Dress 20 Colours, which as you can guess comes with a HUD that offers 20 choices to tint this lovely frock. The dress itself comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes for mesh bodies. The unique style is sure to turn heads wherever you wear it.

I have some busy days ahead, both in RL and SL, since the Wash Cart Sale is starting very soon and there are a few other exciting things I want to show you all. In the next 4 days I have 3 different appointments, oddly all of which will involve needles (blood draw, novocaine for a filling, and acupuncture) so not my favorite type of week but I'll get through it. With a little luck it won't interfere much with my blogging plans. Meanwhile I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Twisted and Gilded

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more Twisted Spring 2019 Hunt prizes to share, with our theme of Divine and our color of Golden. These prizes in particular seem to really embody the theme, and many even incorporate the texture of the cubes we are looking for. This challenging hunt is a favorite of mine because of how meticulously organized it always is, and the group is helpful to those who ask respectfully for hints. I start to feel like I'm seeing rotating cubes in my sleep after a while, LOL, but the designers make it well worth the time and trouble to find the correct ones :) This year they have raised the number of visible decoys allowed per store to 13 (was 10), but the main prize must still be within 30m of the landing spot. The side hunts do not have that restriction, and we aren't even always looking for cubes with those. Bottom line, patience and careful camera work will go a long way to help you find these fantastic free gifts.


We start this evening with the stunning womens' main prize from Applique` Chic called AC: Twisted Divine Gown. It comes in sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine with the gorgeous wings included as a separate attachment. The men get a matching suit, which the wings can also be worn with, so you and your favorite guy can be matching angels. 


While you are at Applique` Chic, be sure to explore their side hunt as well, where there are 6 prizes that include the two I'm showing off above. On the left is the AC: Twisted Swimsuit, a one piece with the exact texture of the cubes, in standard mesh sizes plus versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. On the right I am in the AC: Twisted Lingerie, a mesh bra and panty in standard sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. There are male prizes in the mini hunt too, and it was fun exploring the outside of the store with the Wonderland decor and a bit of a carnival feel.


Another designer who had fun with the cubes' texture is Moonlitecat Creations, who have two cubes with prizes for you to find (male and female prizes). This is the MLCC THS19 Kimono Dress, and it comes in fitmesh standard sizes along with Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. The dramatic black trim and bow on the back bring out the sheen of the gold pattern even more, so pretty.


This prize from Lady Dragons Design will have you gleaming from head to tow! It is called LDD Twisted Devine Women's, because there is also a men's prize waiting in another cube, and it includes both the dress and the footwear in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The dress is named Cazzie and has an intriguing open weave with lacing down each side, and the shoes are appropriately named Goddess with a network of chains and a lock atop each. 


My final look of the evening is focused on the Divine theme, as the prize from --SEKSI helps me pose as a Fallen Angel. The outfit has a bodysuit, gloves, and stockings on an Omega Advanced applier, which allows you to adjust gloss and environment when you have materials enabled in your viewer. The wings are also provided as the left and right half separately, but I slipped out of them for the rear view on the right to give you a closer look at all those straps and chains. I am all about the details, so I enjoy sharing them too.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are having a terrific 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 2019 Hunt, whose theme is Divine. There are many ways to interpret that, and the creative designers did not disappoint :) This is billed as the hardest hunt in SL, and if you have ever taken part you know why. We are looking for bright golden cubes this round, and that color makes an appearance in many of the prizes. The website has all the locations in case you need to skip one, and you can join the inworld group if you want to be able to ask for a hint. I would definitely suggest perusing the website before starting or joining for helpful tips and guidelines. Most of the stores have extras like special sale items, gachas, decoys that contain prizes, and side hunts, so be sure to click the easels anywhere you see them for information.


My first look this evening is the prize from Secrets of Gaia, who are honoring their divine namesake with Gaia's Blessings Women's Top, Skirt, Shoes, and Jewelry. The top and skirt are each provided in Small and Medium standard sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The sandals are in two unrigged versions along with Maitreya and Slink flat sizes, and the earrings and necklace match everything wonderfully. 


Dreaming Thicket has prizes for men and women, and a side hunt with 7 prizes to make everyone feel divine. For this look I am wearing the Asphodel Chiton Dress which is one of the main prizes, and comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. I paired it with one of the side hunt prizes, the lovely Celestial Necklace - Divine Messenger, which you can see closer in the inset. I love that it matches the dress with the yellowy gold gems, but will also look just as pretty with practically anything in your inventory. The side hunt is certainly intriguing, as you will see...not for kids or the faint of heart ;)


For this look, I am pretty much wrapped in Sn@tch from head to toe ;) The main prize is my Sn@tch Lovely Lies Necklace, which comes with a HUD that lets you choose from 5 metal colors. As for the rest of my outfit, it is all from the store hunt which involves finding 7 treasure chests. The top and skirt are the Sn@tch Unholy Mixed Mesh Outfit in Black, with system layers and an Omega applier for the top and standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. Next I added the Sn@tch Daydream Mini Corset in Crosses, which comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes. The thigh high Sn@tch Lorna Pentangle Boots come in the same sizes as the corset, and really add something special to this look. As for accessories, the Sn@tch Lovely Lies Armbands, Sn@tch Lovely Lies Bracelets, and Sn@tch Heretic Earrings (three separate mini hunt prizes) each include a similar HUD to the necklace with 5 metallic texture choices. Even my hair here is a prize, the Sn@tch Aoki Hair in 3 colors (red, white, black) that also includes a set of mesh eyes not shown. You can wear as many of these prizes together as you wish, or mix and match to flex your creativity.


This revealing look can be found at Roped Passions, thanks to a main prize and a side hunt. The female main prize is the (RP) Calliope Silks Divine, which are included in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. They have an ombre to them, both in color and transparency, as you can tell from that rear view especially. I added a treat from the Roped Passions side hunt, their (RP) Twisted Divine Warrior Headdress. It is beautifully designed, and just one of seven prizes from the side hunt.


My final look of the night is from Dramazone, called Ostara - gown, wraith with texture HUD, vines. It is named for the Germanic goddess of light and spring, and starts with the satiny gown in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique fits, with a HUD that offers 8 color/texture choices. There are vine sections for the upper and lower parts of each arm, and the crown jewel (bad pun, sorry) is the wreath of flowers that also comes with an 8 color HUD. I admit, I did feel very ready to welcome spring in this fantastic prize!

Have you ever had a day that felt like it was two full days because you did so much and took a long nap in the middle? That would pretty much sum up my Saturday, which is not a bad thing, just quirky. I saw that April the giraffe had her calf (a boy) but I had not been watching her live camera this time around like I did a couple of years ago. If it's available now that the baby is here, perhaps I'll check in on them from time to time. I hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
