I Have a RebelsSpirit

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to share some wonderful gifts from RebelsSpirit, which are set for sale for $0L but intended as group gifts. They are transferable so you can give them to your friends (pick them up more than once if you wish to do so) but they are not intended to be resold since you will be getting them for free. There are very colorful outfits among the gifts, and I am grateful for the wide range of casual to formal looks. 


My first look is the lovely RebelsSpirit Group Gift 05 which is a full length gown that has cutouts in the front and on the sides for a mostly bare back. The dress comes in 5 standard sizes and 5 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. I love the intricate design emblazoned on the fabric!


Next I slipped into the RebelsSpirit Group Gift 11, a sweater and skirt pairing with each provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP body versions. The scalloped hem of the skirt looks great with the buttons down its front, and I am a fan of the vibrant sweater with detailed elephant image. 


RebelsSpirit Group Gift 07 is a flirty halter with ruffles and a gorgeous floral pattern on a gold background. It includes Altamura Sofia, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature, Star Body, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. I feel like this suits any season or time of year, just by being such a cheerful look. 


Isn't this fabric mesmerizing? You can also claim the RebelsSpirit Group Gift 08 for free, ready to give to a friend or keep for yourself. It comes in classic M and fitmesh M for classic avatars, with sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh bodies. The diamond texture really suits the styling in the back, both the cutout and the pointed hemline. 


My final look of the evening is the RebelsSpirit Group Gift GENEVIEVE, who has me craving a visit to somewhere tropical. It consists of matching tied tube top and maxi skirt, each in standard sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions. The tie dyed texture is a visual treat, and speaks to my inner hippie ♥.

It was a quiet day here, nothing too exciting...houseguest is leaving in the morning, so tomorrow should be a pleasant day :) He hasn't been too awful this visit, just awkward and tends to talk to me like he would talk to his young children. You know that tone of voice, LOL, like gingerly but firmly? I am a few years (7 maybe) older than him, so it is really odd. Oh well, he and housemate had a good time so I am okay with it. They didn't go anywhere, and have done nothing inappropriate for our current health climate, and the guest works from home and gets everything delivered so has not been exposed to anything dangerous. Believe me, I questioned everything beforehand! With my health issues seeming to multiply lately, and my dad starting radiation treatment soon, I was not willing to risk anything. I hope you've all had a terrific weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Be Bold This Weekend

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting a single store, BE BOLD, where you will find a wall of gifts for various groups. I will be sharing many of those in this post :) They are mostly free to join, with an exception of a $4L fee to join one of them, so overall quite the bargain. These multi-designer groups are helpful to find out about sales and events in addition to all of the gifts available from participating stores, so I am a member of several of this type of group. 


First we have the group gift for the Mesh Body Friends group (free to join) called .::BE BOLD::. Gift Dress Graphite #3. This simple and chic sleeveless mini comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. The dark grey color will accentuate your favorite jewelry, whether they are neutral or boldly hued. 


Next I changed into the .::BE BOLD::. Group Gift #4 which is for the Sexy Fashionable Gorgeous Me group. This group has a $4L fee to join, which is probably so low to keep scammers and spammers out of it while still being able to provide us with news and gifts. This top and skirt pairing are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The skirt has an extremely subtle floral pattern, while the strapless top is solid shiny black. 


If you are a member of the FabFree group, please change to that group tag and claim your .::BE BOLD::. Group Gift #7. This knit halter dress has a high neckline that dips all the way down to reveal a bit of bum cleavage in the back, and includes a HUD with 3 neutral color choices (two above plus black). It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. 


This group is new to me, so let me introduce you to the VIP group which is short for Very Important Purchase :) It is free to join with lots of generous designers who participate, and BE BOLD is offering their Group Gift #11 just for us. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, in deep burgundy with a wide black belt. It has short sleeves and an even shorter hemline, with a zipper in the front for added visual interest. 


My final look of the evening is the .::BE BOLD::. Group Gift #13 which is especially for the [FaShIoNable] group, also new to me as well as free to join :) Our gift is a strapless mini with high-low hemline and built in belt, in a camo print for those times you want to pretend to blend in but you look just too good to hide. This treat is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. 

My day had two very distinct pieces to it, with an enjoyable morning and early afternoon at the farmers market picking up all sorts of delicious food, then an afternoon and evening hiding from the housemate's annoying houseguest. He is here until Monday, so I am just trying to be patient until then. I think he tried to drink his body weight in cheap beer tonight, LOL, so I guess it's good to have goals. I might be feeling a tiny bit snarky ;) The housemate will have to empty the recycle can in the kitchen a few times this weekend I'm sure. I am trying to remember why one of the people I talk to each week at the market was saying "not my circus, not my monkeys" earlier but that amusing expression seems to apply to my evening too. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

YM Shop Group Gifts

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to invite you to visit the YM SHOP with me, where you will find a bounty of group gifts and even some lucky boards for lots of versatile outfits. The group is currently free to join, although I am not sure for how long since I remember there being a fee before and the group's description even mentions a $20L cost to join. Honestly that is not a bad deal, but if you are able to join now while it is still free I would highly recommend it :) The wall to the left when you walk through the entrance is where you will find the group gifts, some large images you can click and two vendors with photos to scroll through. When the one you want is in the middle, just click it with their group tag active and it delivers it automatically, very simple to use. A few gifts towards the right seemed to be set for a different group, and are not among tonight's looks here. I did not have much time to wait for the lucky boards to change to a D, so I do not have any of those prizes to share yet, just some wonderful group gifts. 


My first look this evening is the YM SHOP_Adriana Dress, a group gift that is loaded with excellent details. The dress itself is included in Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizes, with a HUD offering an impressive 30 texture choices. There are so many different colors and patterns to choose from, so I just randomly picked two that seemed varied enough to give you an idea. That fringy skirt makes me want to dance! 


I really like the idea of a simple, stylish romper for weekend wear, so I gladly claimed this YM SHOP_Arya Romper. There are two versions, with and without the laces in the deep V neckline, each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. It also includes a HUD with 40 colors for the romper, the same 40 choices for the laces, and 5 metal tones for the rivets that the laces go through. You can get really creative with your look, and it is all thanks to these HUDs. 


Another irresistible group gift is this YM SHOP_Indyla Dress, a strapless mini with lush ruffles in Altamura, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizes. There is also a HUD so you can choose from 27 options, 25 of which are various colors of the style on the left above with 2 solids with contrasting solid colors as on the right. If you ever are unsure about what a HUD will do, I really suggest just go ahead and click different buttons and see what happens :) You cannot do any damage, and it will help you see all the ways you can tint your outfits. 


The YM SHOP_Sera Dress has a strong association with the number 13 for me, as it comes in 13 different colors that are each packed separately. Unpack any color and you will find what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 classic, 5 standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. On the left is Blue Sequin above, and Gold was my choice on the right. The others are beige, black, emerald, fuschia, green sequin, pink sequin, purple sequin, red, red sequin, and white, so there is a wide range of both color and texture to choose from here. I love the way the back swoops down to gather loosely above the formfitting skirt. 


For my final look of the evening, I changed into the daring YM SHOP_Amande Dress and took advantage of another generous HUD. The dress comes in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. The HUD has a whopping 47 choices for our texture, with solid and sheer latex plus sheer lace and even translucent with cobwebs decorating a few colors. The back and front both have flirty dips, and you can see that my rear view is showing off some bum cleavage, so be mindful of that when deciding where to wear this little number. 

Are you all ready for the weekend? Mine started with dinner at my parents', and continues in the morning with a visit to my favorite local farmers market which I always appreciate. Then it will take a downturn with my housemate's houseguest arriving, ugh...the one I don't get along with...he is awkward and unfriendly, so I will spend most of my time hiding in here with my TV and the computer. That does mean I will be hanging out with all of you in a way, so that is a plus :) Oh and tonight was fun because I got to watch my favorite hockey player get his first NHL hat trick, 3 goals in one game. He is smaller than most of the guys on the team and in the league, so he has to work extra hard and it has been paying off. Well I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Luck and Gifts at KitCat

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the KitCat store, whose free group tag gives you access to several group gifts in addition to the 10 lucky boards right by their front door. They feature clothing for the Maitreya body, and lots of great accessories to help you jazz up your outfits to suit your personal tastes. I enjoyed my visits there, and even wound up chatting with some other residents who were hanging out at the lucky boards waiting for our initials to appear. I am delighted to show you a few of the prizes I won, and a couple of group gifts I eagerly claimed from the other side of the small wall behind the front desk. 


My first look tonight is a group gift that you could use to wrap up an evening, their KitCat - Onesie Group Gift. It includes a handy HUD to let you choose from 3 colors of plaid patterns (the two above and green) with options to turn the hood and socks each off or on. I hid the socks on the right but left the hood showing so you could get a better look :)


Several of the gifts and prizes are tops, so I have changed into the black pair of Delizio jeans from their free marketplace fatpack, which includes several other colors each in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega. The top is a group gift called KitCat - Tied Tank GG, and fits the Maitreya body. There is also a HUD provided, with 12 colors for the tank top and 2 for the trim, black and white. This is certainly a flirty look, and the top will look great with any pants or skirt you wish to wear it with. 


This cute top is the KitCat - HeartSick Tied Tube Top Lemon, and you can win it from their lucky boards if your initial shows up. Like their other clothing it is made for the Maitreya body, and has slender detached sleeves as well as the knot referenced in its name. The stripes are a pretty touch too!


This lucky board prize is the MS Design :: Torn Top (Red) which leads me to believe that the store had a rebrand somewhere along the way :) Some of the prizes and gifts have the MS Design name while others say KitCat. This sexy prize includes the top, the collar (separate piece), and a HUD with 4 metal choices for the chain on the collar piece. Wear it with or without the collar, totally up to you, and either way you will have bare shoulders and daringly bare belly and lower breasts. 


My final look of the evening is another lucky board prize, this one called :: MS Design :: Fuzzy Cozy Sweater Red. There are plenty of possibilities here, as it includes not only the sweater and the text overlay add-on, but a HUD offering two color choices for the sweater (solid or striped) and a bevy of choices for the text overlay. You can pick from 17 text sayings or 6 symbols, just click the arrows on the HUD to get from page to page. The text I chose on the left, Nap Queen, seemed all too appropriate after my week so far, LOL, and the symbol of a cat's face peeking over the light grey stripe was too cute not to share. 

Whew, it is almost Friday and I am relieved because this week has been a wild one. The blood draw from Tuesday had a problem because my doctor used the wrong code for one of the tests (?) and I had to go back in for another draw. Apparently the tubes the first time have something in them to clot the blood and then the blood is spun and the unclotted part is analyzed. But the correct test needed to be analyzed without being clotted, so two more tubes were drawn today. I had my podiatrist appointment yesterday with lots of digging around my ingrown toenails *cringe* so I have had some interesting days. Tomorrow is dinner at my parents' house, and that won't involve anything sharp or stressful so I can look forward to it ;) Meanwhile I hope you are all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Treats for SLFO

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features more gifts for the SLFO or SL Frees & Offers group, which is free to join and has an impressive collection of participating designers. They share information about events, sales, and specials in addition to many offering free gifts to be claimed with the SLFO group tag. They have been a valuable part of my SL experience for years, and will always have a place among my precious group slots :) I enjoy the in-world group chat too, as it can alert to a midnight mania that needs a certain number of clicks in a short time, or a sale ending in an hour, little news flashes such as those. Friendly folks there too, which of course makes any group chat more welcoming and appreciated. 


First we have the lovely Mayla Night Dress from Brunsen Couture, a playful strapless mini in glittery silver. This group gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The hemline gets surprisingly low when viewed from behind, and I really enjoy the ruffled layers throughout.


DIESELdeluxe is on the same sim as Brunsen Couture, and they have a wonderful gift for the SLFO group too. This is their Beulah Outfit Top&Skirt Pride Jeans, and you will find each piece provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The dark denim tube top has pretty ruffles and a tiny opening in the front, and who can resist the rainbow stripes and contrasting stitching of the skirt?


Next we have the gift from *caramelo de fresa* called Dress M-0318. It is a versatile cutie, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies with a 12 color HUD. The white bows stay the same in any color choice, with the rest of the dress having two similar hues for contrast. I love the dainty pockets on the front, and the way the belt matches the hem ruffle perfectly.


I also stopped by Eliya.K where I found a gift waiting for us called Gul Dress - STEEL (Plain). It comes in Freya, Isis, and Maitreya sizing, with a HUD offering 12 colors for the skirt add-on as well as the option to hide it. I found that out by clicking the eyeball to see what it did ;) The long full skirt layer has a playful fishnet texture to it, and looks great in any color you choose. The belt is attached too, and is a nice touch for wearing the dress with or without the skirt add-on visible. 


I combined two gifts to create my final look of the night, and was quite pleased with the results. The top is the Caboodle - Turtleneck Sweater - Purple, which has flattering stripes and fits Hourglass and Maitreya mesh bodies. The jeans are our gift from CLOCKHAUS called Malibu Jeans Ombre, which you can claim in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. They go from blue down to black, with ripped knees and some fun insets of pale material on both the thighs and the rear pockets which say "LOVE" on them. Both of these gifts will look terrific with so many different pieces from your wardrobe, and I am excited about all the possibilities. 

I have a few extra plans for tomorrow that made me decide that I should take tomorrow evening off from blogging. So no post tomorrow, but I will be back with a new post on Thursday night :) I have to talk to someone in the morning about the blood test I had drawn earlier, as my doctor used a code that is not a test that my lab can do (??) so they can either use that sample for a similar test, or send me to a different lab company to get more blood drawn. They left a message while I was on the way home, and they left for the day so I have to wait for them to call again. I would prefer they do the similar test with the same blood sample (no additional needles, thanks!) but I also feel like the doctor should be the one to decide since she is the expert and knows what information she needs from the tests. Then I have an unrelated appointment for my feet, and the first hockey game of the 2021 season if I can manage to stay awake and alert for it ;) I have the feeling that when I go out tomorrow, like today I will wind up having to stop several other places and will be out for much longer than I'd like, hence the decision that I have too much going on to comfortably blog at night. This magpie needs some rest or she'll have ruffled feathers, LOL! It is all being done for the benefit of my health in the long run, so it is worth the bit of chaos this week. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

SLFO Group Goodies

 Hiya everyone! Tonight it occurred to me that it had been quite a while since I explored the group gifts for the SLFO group, so that is precisely what I did. The group's initials stand for SL Frees & Offers, and their aim is to provide information about sales, events, and freebies throughout Second Life. Many participating designers offer free group gifts for the SLFO members, several of which I have found and will be showing you this evening :) Sometimes that is a challenge since stores seem to move fairly often, and I teleported into at least 3 wrong locations today, LOL...imagine thinking you are landing in a clothing store but instead appear at a nude beach! Even more of a problem is landing in someone's private home, so I am grateful that didn't happen this time. Don't worry, I have double checked the links in my ending credits to make sure you will wind up in the correct store. These generous gifts are certainly worth the effort, and I am grateful for each and every one.


I started at ALB, where I eagerly claimed their gift called BREE gown heels jewels. This gift includes the catsuit base in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink appliers, and continues with two flexi skirts (both seen on the left, skirt 2 only on the right) and a generous helping of accessories. The heels come in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high sizing, and the additional pieces of this look are two necklaces, earrings, armbands for each arm, a belt with flowers, a thigh band, and not shown are a headband and a ring for the left hand. That sure is an impressive collection! You can wear as many or as few of these as you wish, to create the look you prefer. Please click the image for a full view, as it is a wider photo than usual.


Next I visited .:AMUI:. where I found a wall dedicated to group gifts, and I claimed the SLFO treat called "Lorena" - Blue. (The other gifts are different colors for various groups, so be sure to see if any other groups you belong to are represented!) This pretty star-dusted mini with white ruffle comes in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. To claim the gift, please right click the image and choose the $1L button, which will be immediately refunded as the gift is delivered. 


Asteria is ready to brighten your day with a group gift too, this one called "Alecia" Top&Skirt - Fatpack. There are Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes each of several different colors of the top and skirt seen here, each of those in gold or silver for the metal accents. The 7 colors include black (top left), brown, damson (top right), lagoon (skirt left), navy, purple (skirt right), and red. I am wearing silver versions on the left, gold on the right, and loving all the potentials here :) The top looks like it was trimmed out of a biker jacket, and both pieces are wonderfully detailed in any color. 


If you are craving something sexy to wear, look no further than the gift from !! Julia Style!! which is named Edit Mini Dress. This slightly see-through dress is very short and trimmed with lace at the hem, so I would even consider layering pants of some sort beneath for modesty if the occasion calls for it. The gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, with a 10 color HUD. Versatility just adds to its obvious appeal, and think of all the fun ways you could accessorize this gift. 


My final destination of the evening was Brii Underground, who have several terrific gifts for various gifts such as their SLFO treat seen here. The MARG LOISIRS STYLE COMPLET OUTFIT really is a full outfit with all the trimmings, starting with the bustier and high waisted pants each in standard mesh sizes along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body versions. The gift also includes matching heels in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High sizes, as well as the earrings, choker, sunglasses, and even the makeup you see here in a system/BOM layer plus an Omega applier. The makeup is a smoky eyeshadow with bold red lipstick, adding an extra chic touch to this fashionable ensemble.

Oh my goodness, what a weird day...I kept feeling like I had forgotten to do something, and unfortunately I was right. It was a follow-up blood test, nothing too serious but I should have had it done right away instead of waiting until a week before my next appointment with the family doctor. So that is my plan tomorrow, I am scheduled for an afternoon blood draw, then Wednesday I go to a totally different doctor to have my toenails trimmed and ingrown nails taken care of. From head to toe, this week is about routine maintenance I guess ;) At least the blood results will be ready before I visit that doctor next week, and we can reevaluate and adjust any meds as needed. In these stressful times, I still urge everyone to take care of yourselves in order to stay happy and healthy. I hope you're all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Let It Snow Hunt

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post is all about cold weather, as the hunt prizes I am sharing come from the Let It Snow Hunt 4. We are looking for a tiny snowperson with a scarf (flat prim image) for $1L in each store, with hints on the hunt website to guide us. The website also has some preview images along with all of the landmarks, so you will want to have it open and available while you follow the hunt path. I randomly chose 5 hunt gifts that are ladies fashion, but you will also see that there are mens fashion and home decor items among the many prizes. 


My first look comes from one of the sponsors of the hunt, Wiccan Wears. Their snowman holds this lovely ~WW~ Ava Teal Snowflake Dress & Boots, which are a great way to stay mostly warm while flashing hints of skin. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. The prize also includes the peeptoe stiletto boots in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. 


When the weather gets chilly, a common instinct is to reach for a soothing warm drink, as I have done here :) This is the female hunt prize from ~MystRie~ (male prize is in a separate snowman) called Snow Days Loungewear, a single mesh piece in fitmesh standard sizes (S, M, L) as well as versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The snowflake coffee mug is included too, and it has a built in animated hold pose with sipping motion as shown above. There is even subtle steam rising from the beverage for added realism.


Next we visit [Ari-Pari], whose snowperson holds this delightfully versatile Winter Knit V-Neck Dress - LISH4. The long sleeved dress hugs every curve, and has a pretty snowflake and stripe pattern whose flake colors match the solid sleeve color in your choice of 8 hues via HUD. The dress is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. Special note: the landmark on the website is the store's old location, so please use the one from my ending credits (or right sidebar, as they are one of my sponsors) to make sure you visit their new home. I sent a message to the hunt organizers this morning, but as of right now they have not updated the website yet. That is not a complaint, as we all know how busy both RL and SL can be, just trying to be as helpful as possible to them and you :)


Double the dresses means double the fun! Our hunt prize from Artistic.Rage is their A.R Snowyflake Dress Light/Dark, and both shades of blue are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The various white flakes look striking against each color, and the little peek of white on the neckline brings out the white of the pattern even more. 


My final look of the evening is the Prairie - Camila Gift, a pretty striped sweater and long distressed skirt. Each come in Freya, Isis, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite sizing, so there is a wide range. I am really impressed with the ingenuity of the mesh body makers community, to have various ways to modify their bodies to suit more and more shapes and sizes. Not all curvy women have the same curves, and not all curvy people are women, so this allows for more flexibility in self-expression. I am always pleased to see more clothing brands supporting the different sizing by including those versions in their offerings like this. 

It is a chilly evening here, so I am even more bundled up in RL than I am in these images tonight ;) Slipper socks, the kind with the non-skid gripper things on the bottom, are a must for me...I am wearing a pair of those and a robe for warmth, and my lap blanket is protecting my legs from the cold air. The window I sit in front of tends to let in the outdoor temperatures, not fun but I am used to it by now. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
