Endless Summer Nights

Hiya everyone! It is time for a few more peeks at some goodies from The Wash Cart Sale, each item only $10L so you can perk up your summer wardrobe or freshen your living space on a budget. There is about a week remaining to visit the event and save lots of lindens on high quality merchandise. I also have some more glimpses down the Silk Road, the Silk Road Hunt VIII that is, and since the hunt ends in a couple of days I strongly suggest you hurry to search for those golden pagodas. They contain a wide variety of prizes for men and women, but I did notice a considerable amount of home decor this round for their Byzantium theme. Think of all the creative things you could do with that, especially mixed with some Wash Cart Sale bargains! Can you hear the wheels turning in my head, coming up with ideas?


This first duo of dresses is just a small sampling of the dozen versions offered on the NSP/Muse cart at The Wash. On the left is NSP Rosie Sleeveless Dress V1, on the right is V12, and each are just $10L and include standard mesh sizes. There is a nice range of colors and patterns, and I love the asymmetrical hem on this style. You can visit their mainstore by clicking here, and the direct link to their cart is in my ending credits.


For this look, I slipped into a versatile offering from Lunar Seasonal Designs at The Wash, their HUD Driven Retro Summer Dot Dress with Bow, standard mesh sizes with a HUD that lets you choose from 6 background colors for this fun dotty pattern. The dress is just $10L and so are plenty of other choices on their Retail cart as well as a Full Perm cart if you are a creative type :) Their mainstore link can be found here, and the ending credits link will zip you to their retail cart (full perm cart is next door). I am leaning against one of the many items for sale for just $10L each at the Low Prim Living cart, their lovely [LPL] Celest Bookshelf with Poses. It has a land impact of just 8, and is quite detailed with everything you see on the shelves built in, including that nice bright lamp. There are 3 poses to choose from when you right click - sit, unisex so anyone can enjoy. Some of their other cart offers have poses too, while others have texture changing menus, these are useful additions to any home. Mainstore link here, limo directly to their cart is in my ending credits as usual :)


Let's explore the Silk Road hunt a bit, this is a fun prize from Tayren's Fantasy Fashions called Female Roman Outfit in Green for SRH8. It includes the toga in standard mesh sizes, sandals in classic or Slink flat, cabochon necklace, and laurel leaf hair wreath with resize script built in. I am either ready for a toga party, costume event, roleplaying, or just randomly dressing in a different style than usual for me :) I am loving that rich texture, the green looks velvety and oh so touchable. There is a male prize provided as well, as with most of the stops in this hunt.


The Byzantine Empire seems to have been known for opulence as well as fascinating artwork, and this dress incorporates those ideas very well. It is our gift from Lillou Merlin Design called [LD] Thea Dress, and comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The rich golden mosaic design is a striking example of Byzantine art, and its timeless beauty makes this dress even more special.


Our final look of the evening adds an Asian flair to the post, the prize from Prism Designs called Prism Kayo Geisha by Jezzixa Cazalet. It is provided in 5 classic mesh sizes as well as 5 fitmesh sizes, and the pattern resembles a tapestry that would be quite at home traveling the Silk Road. The luxurious colors are complemented by the black trim and wide belt with back bow.

My title tonight was pretty random, as I have been listening to a great deal of 80s music lately and hear that song by Richard Marx fairly often. It is another beautiful evening, my window is open and I'm enjoying a soft breeze, so I am grateful for a nice night. I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening as well, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Silk Road to the Wash Cart Sale

Hiya everyone! Tonight there are even more peeks from The Wash Cart Sale, where everything is just $10L and there is something for just about everyone - clothing for men, women, and children, plus accessories, textures, and home decor among other treats. Another hunt that I really wanted to show you is the Silk Road VIII - Byzantium from Historical Hunts (the same folks who organize the Steam Hunts as well) and there are just a few days remaining so I urge you to hurry :) You will be looking for a golden pagoda with touches of reddish purple, there is a sample on every sign along with a hint giver. Most of these prizes are home decor type items, but I found several terrific outfits that I wanted to share tonight and tomorrow. These are ideal for roleplaying but also just for a change of pace, when you want to explore something new in SL or try a different type of look. My tastes in SL are eclectic and varied, since just about anything is possible here.


If you have a Maitreya body, you don't want to miss the Classy Chics cart at the Wash, because all their offerings are exclusively Maitreya appliers and include lingerie as well as outerwear. The tops I am wearing here are both from the Tender Top 4 Maitreya Applier, which offers sheer and solid versions of this top in green and purple, all four for just $10L. If you like the style but prefer other colors, you could choose from White/Black, Teal/Pink, or Red/Blue sets for the same low price each. Great news if you like my Mini Denim Booty Shorts seen here in two of their 5 colors, because they are a free gift on the Classy Chics cart just for visiting! There are plenty of bargains to be found there, so please use the link in my ending credits to whisk yourself directly to their cart, and you can visit the Classy Chics mainstore by clicking here for their full range.


When you stop by the John Dee's Emporium cart, you will notice a powerful theme going on there...a design inspired by The Sun tarot card on items for men and ladies. Here I am wearing the Tarot Series - The Sun Swimsuit on the left (standard mesh sizes included) and the Tarot Series - The Sun Dress on the right. That beauty comes in sizes for standard, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP. You can visit the John Dee's Emporium mainstore by clicking here, and the direct link for their cart is in my credits as usual.


Exploring the Silk Road, your path will bring you to Thistle Moon Designs where their pagoda holds this Byzantine Phoenix Dress for the ladies in standard mesh sizes. There is also a matching robe for the men. I was quite taken with the rich coloring and the burnished gold trim, and have a personal connection with the idea of rebirth symbolized by the phoenix so I am very fond of them in general too. 


Another prize I could not resist sharing is this amazing gift from Miss Darcy, their Silk Road - Amity Gown - Carp Noir. That pattern is so delicate, and I love the deep colors of the flattering bodice and the way they accentuate the koi. It comes in Belleza, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes, plus there is a matching men's shirt included in the prize as well. These poses are a preview of the Hello Tuesday offering this week from Verocity, more information in a moment...


One last look of the evening, this is the Rainy Fey Creations prize called Byzantium Women's Outfit and it includes the gown in standard mesh sizes plus the gold pendant you see here, along with a pair of gold shoes (flats) not shown. As you can guess from the name, they were kind enough to provide a men's prize too, so this hunt is suited for the gentlemen as well as the ladies. Now my poses here are from the Verocity Ashley Pose Set, which includes 6 poses and their mirror versions for just $25L and will be available in a couple of hours for Hello Tuesday. Here you see Ashley 2 and Ashley 4M, while in the photo above are Ashley 6 and Ashley 5. They are a remarkable bargain, and I have found their poses to be consistently top quality and use them for all of my blog posts. Their main store link is always in my right side links, and their Hello Tuesday location is what you'll see in my ending credits.

It was another hectic day here with emotional ups and downs, not quite the peaceful day I'd envisioned but there is always tomorrow ;) I hope you are all having a beautiful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Manic Monday

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have some more selections from The Wash Cart Sale, where everything is just $10L and the offerings include clothing for men, women, and kids as well as accessories, textures, home decor and more. The cart sale runs until the 5th of July so you have over a week remaining to stop by, and believe me it is worth a visit or two. I also have a few more Kiyomizu Hunt prizes to share with you, from their Summer 2017 round which has almost 2 weeks remaining (July 9th) and we are searching for cute ninja cats in the mall as well as some of the mainstores. Click a floating ghost to find out where you still need to visit to find those kitties, then give them each a tickle to get a free gift. My title tonight, well by the time I post this it will be just past midnight and so it will be the very start to my Monday, and lately all my days have been rather manic.


I am such a fan of this Summer Bloom Dress Dk Olive from Emerald Couture, which you can find on their cart along with plenty of other selections for just $10L each. This dress comes in 5 standard mesh sizes, 5 fitmesh, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The style is perfect for summer, and the pattern on it is a subtle floral in neutral colors. You can visit their mainstore by clicking here, and please use the link in the ending credits to reach this cart directly.


You will need to click this photo to see the full size since it is a wider view than I usually do, but we deserve a good look at this terrific furniture as well as my sexy swimsuit! I am wearing one of the terrific options at the Dark Water Designs cart, their Polka Dot One Piece in Pink, which comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, and 5 standard mesh sizes, and the bold teal trim is a cheery touch. As you can see from the inset, the back is a bit on the cheeky side, pun intended :) Those cheeks are resting on the lounger of the EC Designs Deck Set in Teak, a three piece ensemble with land impact 2 each for the lounger and chair, and LI of just 1 for the table between. The chair and lounger each have male and female sit animations, and all three pieces are copyable so you can rez out as many as you need to give your favorite outdoor or indoor area a new look. The limos directly to each cart are in my ending credits, and you can visit Dark Water Designs mainstore here, and for EC Designs click here.


Kiyomizu hunt time, this breezy dress is from Cecelia and called Summer Beach Mini Dress. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Fitted versions, and I love the modern shape paired with the classic lace and floral pattern. Just find their hidden ninja kitty and you can claim this lovely prize too.


One last look of the night, this is a close look at the Slink nails from Nekomimiya, a new-to-me store at the Kiyomizu Mall. The applier offers this fun black leopard print, delicate because of the subtle pattern. I think of it as a neutral look with a twist :) 

I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Weekend With The Wash and Kiyomizu

Hiya everyone! Tonight is another look at some of the $10L bargains found at The Wash Cart Sale, one of my favorite events of each season because it offers such variety from so many designers, at deeply discounted prices so everyone can afford to treat themselves. Another way to find talented designers and sample their merchandise is through Kiyomizu Summer 2017 Hunt, where you can explore the Kiyomizu Mall and look for hidden ninja cats while seeing what they have to offer. Don't forget to click a floating ghost to get to a website that will show you which ones you have found and where you still need to visit, either in the mall itself or some of their mainstores. I did notice that a few stores were new to me, even though I do this hunt each season, so you just might find a new favorite place to shop.


Starting out at the Wash, you can find these terrific outfits and several other versions at the Luziefee cart for just $10L each. The one on the left is called LUZ River 2, and on the left is River 5, I randomly chose from among the pretty colors of this floral pattern. Each outfit consists of the River blouse in standard mesh sizes, and the Cute Capris in system layers and an Omega HUD. Each piece is very versatile, the blouse can be paired with your favorite skirt instead and the capris go with everything, as you will see in the next few photos :) You can visit the Luziefee mainstore by clicking here, but for these special Wash Cart Sale offers please use the link in my ending credits.


I left those awesome capris on from the Luziefee outfits to show you some tops from the Mystic Dragon Designs cart, and it was tough to narrow it down to just these two :) The flirty blouse on the left is called Suzi and comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and Werwolf sizes, while the tank top on the right is Lady Tank who comes in standard mesh sizes. That image on the front is so striking, isn't it? You can add these two or your choice of several others to your summer wardrobe for just $10L each, and there are offerings for the guys at this cart too. You can visit their mainstore by clicking here, and the direct limo to their cart is in my ending credits as usual.


Those capris came in handy once again so I can show you this adorable prize from the Kiyomizu Hunt. This sweet Fruit Camisole Pineapple is hiding in the kitty at Jury Pop, in sizes XS, S, and M. The sheer layer atop the solid bottom layer makes for a clever mix of solid pineapples and blurred images of them, and the bright green trim really makes the colors pop. 


My weekend seems to have taken a cute turn, just look at these precious bunnies! This is the prize from *Ran* that you can claim just by clicking that hidden ninja cat, their 17-15 Kiyomizu Summer Hunt T-Shirt Dress Rabbit. It comes in an impressive array of sizes: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. I love that the design of bunnies and flowers repeats on the back, so you will look just as cute from behind as you already do from the front. 

Well, it was a hot and sunny day today and I think I got myself a bit of sunburn, despite using sunscreen as usual. All in all it was a good day though, and I hope all of you had a fun one as well. Magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Prizes and Bargains

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have some more wonderful deals from The Wash Cart Sale, where the selections are just $10L each and some are exclusives or new releases that are premiering right here at the cart sale. I am also pleased to share more prizes from the Kiyomizu Hunt, which starts at the Kiyomizu Mall and continues to some main stores of the participating designers. Just click a floating ghost at the mall (check the walkways) to find out where you still need to check for the hiding ninja cats. The signs at each store will show how many cats are hidden there, and be sure to peek inside the stores since some signs are indoors rather than out front. Okay, time to look at some bargains and hunt prizes!


This striking dress is one of several offerings at the *baci shop* cart at the Wash, called lu-WhiteMagic, however don't let the name fool you, as it includes a HUD with 9 color choices. There are sizes for Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP along with standard mesh sizes. I really like those cut outs and the straps with sassy buckles. It is only $10L and there are several other discounted selections there, the direct link is in my ending credits and their mainstore link can be found here.


If your plans this weekend include a visit to one of SL's many beautiful beaches, you definitely need to stop by the Heaven & Hell cart first. The outfits you see here are just a small sample of the colors and patterns on offer there for just $10L per outfit, solids and Hawaiian prints and more. The left is called H&H Miranda Top & Skirt Bursting Patriotic, the right is the same outfit in Pink Hawaiian. Each outfit includes the top and skirt in sizes for Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, Maitreya, and TMP, plus a matching tote bag that has a hold pose built in. These are intended for us to mix and match, so for a mere $10L each you can pick out your favorite designs and get creative with them. For any of my neighbors to the North who are reading this, there is a Canadian version as well with your lovely red and white maple leaf design on it :) There are some great shirts for the guys too, including ones for both countries. The link for their cart is in my credits at the end, and you can visit their main store by clicking here


A cute little ninja kitty hiding at M&A gave me this very pretty Summer Halter Beach Dress, wasn't that generous? The dress is included in a variety of mesh sizes: XS, Small, Medium, Belleza Isis, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP. Please follow the red arrow/beacon from your map to find the exact store here, it is upstairs above a cafe after you leave the train station landing zone. 


One last look of the evening, this is actually both prizes hiding at :::ISR::: because they have 2 ninja cats for us to find. The first one contains the layered tank dress called Deep is Important, with a peek of plaid beneath a chart of vital organs. Also included is a matching shirt for the men to enjoy. The second kitty gives us a set of earrings, Paper Crane Pierce, one in red (shown in inset) and one in solid black. They both default to the left earlobe, so I am only wearing one here. 

Three cheers for the weekend!! It has been a really long week here, so even though things will get busy I am hoping to find some time to just unwind. We all deserve some fun, and some downtime when we need it. I hope this weekend brings all of you many good things, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Wash and Kiyomizu Treats

Hiya everyone! Tonight we explore a bit more of The Wash Cart Sale, where everything is just $10L and there is a great selection of clothing for the whole family (men, women, children) as well as accessories, home decor, textures, and much more. At those prices, you can afford to enhance your summer wardrobe and spruce up your living space too. Another fun place to explore is the Kiyomizu Mall, where they are holding their Kiyomizu Summer 2017 Hunt that I so enjoy each round. We are searching for ninja cats, there are signs at each participating store with his photo on it and there are friendly ghosts floating around (above the sidewalks) who will send you to a website showing you which cats you've found and where you still need to visit, if you ask nicely by clicking them.


My first pair of outfits are mix and matched from the K&A Design women's cart at The Wash, and their men's cart is right next door. My shirts are their Carly Cropped Shirt, Tie Die Blue/Pink on the left and Tie Dye Green/Orange on the right, and each come in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink). The shorts are their Stacie Shorts in Love Pocket on the left, Tie Dye Pocket on the right, and each include standard fitmesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Curvy, Fine, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. There are other varieties of these items as well as several other selections, all for a mere $10L each. The direct link to the cart is in my credits at the end, and their mainstore link can be found here.


Mishmash Fusion is another terrific cart to visit, where you will find some sexy swimsuits and cute summery dresses in various colors. Here you can see the Xanadu Trikini in Pink Paisley on the left and in the middle, because you definitely deserve to see that playful rear view :) This includes sizes for eBody, Hourglass, Physique, Maitreya, and a Standard Small and Standard Large, and there are other designs including transparent colors, for just $10L each. On the right is their Timeless Mini Dress in Purple, with dramatic V neck and soft ruffles, in a standard fitmesh size plus Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique fits. If purple isn't your favorite, you can find two other colors on the cart as well, that same low price of $10L each. Your limo ride to the cart is in the ending credits, and you can visit their mainstore by clicking here too.


Two different ninja kitties teamed up to help me build this lovely outfit, as White Shell has one cat hiding at their Kiyomizu Mall store and the other in their Cinema Wave store (advice: peek next to the hunt sign, you will need that teleporter) so they are different stops on the hunt path. The lovely White Shell Dress Camisol Hunt Prize from Kiyomizu Mall pairs beautifully with the White Shell Long Maxi Hunt Prize, and each come in a single mesh size with matching alpha layer for classic avatars. For variety I might wear that skirt with a white shirt to pick up those fun laces on the front, and the shirt would look pretty with a nice pair of denim shorts (like the ones above from the cart sale!) so they are both quite versatile.


One last look of the evening, this is our hunt prize from Dreamer called Elegant Summer Dress Kiyomizu Hunt. It is a long slender style with full skirt and comes in a single mesh size with the alpha layer you will need for classic bodies. I think it would be at home in any season's wardrobe, not just summer :) I can picture it with a little bolero style sweater in autumn for example. Just find that hidden ninja cat and this treat is yours to enjoy.

Quick hair note of the night: I was in the mood for a bit of retail therapy, so I headed to Shiny Shabby and picked up Wasabi Pills' offering there called Berry Mesh Hair. I chose the reds pack, as I do, and it was $250L for two sizes plus an unrigged version, and HUDs for color and accessories. I do have quite a hair addiction in SL ;) The pretty wisps and delicate braid really caught my eye.

It was a hot and humid day here, and a busy one too, so I am very happy to be relaxing at my computer while enjoying the air conditioning. Another hectic weekend is almost here, and I think the weather is going to be stormy so that should make things interesting. I hope all of you are having a beautiful day/evening, and magical magpie hugs to every one of you!!

Wash Cart Sale and Kiyomizu Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I get to share two of my favorite seasonal events, The Wash Cart Sale which just started and runs until the 5th of July, and the Kiyomizu Hunt which I started sharing last night. The Wash Cart Sale features dozens of talented designers whose carts offer $10L items which is a tremendous savings, and many of these items are exclusive to the cart sale or brand new releases appearing here first. The variety is impressive too, clothing for men and women and even children's sizing, plus accessories and home decor among other selections. The Kiyomizu Hunt starts at the lovely Kiyomizu Mall, as I mentioned yesterday, and you are looking for ninja cats in the mall stores along with some of the main stores, the best way to navigate is to click one of the floating ghosts above the walkways and it will give you a personalized website with locations you found cats, and the ones you still need. The signs are scripted to tell you exactly how many cats are in each store if any, which helps greatly and always impresses me for keeping the hunt meticulously organized. Fantastic free prizes too!


The first cart my virtual tour is visiting is Artic Storm, whose mainstore is on this very Wash sim where the cart sale is held. One of their many offerings that caught my eye is the Xia Boho Summer Pink outfit you see on the left, the top comes in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Ocacin sizes. The skirt is included in Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and Maitreya sizes. Now the lovely dress on my right is another bargain from Artic Storm, their Gerry Dress Blue Eyelet which includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, eBody, and a classic fitted version. Just $10L for each of these pretty choices, or maybe you will pick another new favorite from their cart.


Next we have two of several tempting selections from Entice at the Wash Cart Sale, a bikini and a matching cover-up. The Just Like Fire Bikini - Blue comes in Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes, and I really enjoyed the bright color and the little details like the bright white trim and the tiny bows on the back and hips. This beauty is only $10L, and for another $10L you can pick up the Just Like Fire Cover-Up - Blue which comes in the same sizes as the bikini and is a loose fit with sexy dips in the front and back. You could wear the bikini by itself and look terrific, and you can pair this cover-up with just about any bathing suit or bra/shorts set in your inventory, but it is so helpful to have a matching set when you want one. Entice is offering other styles as well, from swimsuits to shoes, always worth a peek. You can visit their mainstore too by clicking here, and the direct cart link is in my ending credits as always.


A little more hunting rewards to show you, this is our Kiyomizu hunt prize from Frangipani Garden called *FG* Stripe Dress #01 Purple. It consists of a Classic/Maitreya size, a Maitreya Autohide version, and a Slink size along with the alpha layer for classic bodies. The nice deep purple stripes are accentuated by thin red trim around the high empire waist, and I really like the flowing style. Just find the hidden ninja kitty and it's all yours.


Another purple gift found at the mall itself is this beautiful Blouson OneP from Karin, actually a lighter shade like lavender. The dress comes in plenty of mesh sizes (standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Ocacin) and definitely caught my attention with the pretty flowers and black cat silhouette on the back. I believe most if not all of the prizes each season from Karin have had a cat on them, in honor of the ninja kitties we are seeking, a very special little touch that I deeply appreciate.

Whew, I have only been home from the hospital (visiting) for a couple of hours, and I am one tired little magpie. Tomorrow I have acupuncture and hopefully another hospital visit if I feel up to it, and then another busy weekend begins :) I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
