Midnight Luck

Hiya everyone! Tonight I've got a variety of lucky board and midnight mania prizes to show you, as you know I am very appreciative of the generous goodies these designers give us the chance to obtain for free :)


This lacy lovely is the Lucky Board prize from Graffitiwear, such a pretty shade of aqua. A word to the wise, that top is fairly sheer and from certain angles you can see more than you might expect ;) The alpha doesn't hide your breasts. I'm tempted to wear smiley face pasties under and see if anyone notices!


I adore this wonderfully crafted shirt from NoName! The leather texture, the terrific rings, this is a great addition to any wardrobe and is the current Midnight Mania offering. I think the softness of the shirt with the strength of the corset really appeals to me, they are one single mesh piece for ease of wearing by the way. I am wearing the marketplace free capris I have blogged recently just to have something covering my tushie, hehe, but I can envision this with a maxi skirt or a shorter frilly one, or perhaps a pair of leather textured pants? The possibilities are endless!


I was fortunate enough to win this Lucky Board prize from Sweet Cat, and the stripes are quite stunning especially in two of my favorite colors. The top is a bit big, this is my usual size small but the XS was too small at the hem and in the sleeve area. This may need some shape tweaking to get just right :)


Need something that's casual but very stylish? This is a beautiful Midnight Mania prize from {Karma} and includes the top and pants. I love the gentle drape of the neckline, and the way the color highlights the flowers of the jeans. This outfit will get plenty of wear, that's for sure.

Well I hope you've enjoyed tonight's magpie treasures, have a wonderful day/night and hugs to all!!

Rainy Day Blues and Somnia

Hiya everyone! I am back with a few goodies from a small hunt, the Rainy Day Blues Hunt, and a very generous gift from Somnia. I'll start with that, mostly because I'm so eager to show it off!! :)

This shirt suits me so well, the "Positive Vibes Only!" saying is very close to my heart and something I've been striving for for many years. Wait until you hear what all is included here...this wonderfully generous gift includes the shirt, jeans, belt, shoes for standard avatar feet or Slink Mid feet, and even coordinating nail HUDs as the shirt/shoes/belt can be changed via HUDs to your choice of 5 beautiful colors! This outfit can be found at Free Dove, where Somnia has those free gifts I blogged earlier in the month. That hunt is only on for another day or so, although if you look around you can see boxes and doves and such from previous hunts, various designers. So very worth a visit :)

One of the prizes from the Rainy Day Blues hunt, this lovely jacket dress is the prize from Tiffany Designs. I love all the little details, they certainly add up to something special.

For something a bit more summery, how about the prize from Layers? :) Please keep in mind this is system layers with no appliers and no mesh. The color is very eye catching, and these are the kind of thing I like to use for layering.

That layering comment led nicely to this photo, hehe, as it is the same outfit with the prize from Mutiny in Heaven added. The coloring worked out nicely to layer it, and how fantastic is that texturing on this jacket? It reminds me of stars just before the sun fully rises. Actually since it's named Raindrops, we should probably go with that analogy as well ;)

I certainly had an interesting day, went to the gym with a horribly bloodshot eye as I apparently managed to get lotion in it when I was groggy and moisturizing my poor dry face. Not a great look, hehe. I'm sure everyone was grateful that we use antiseptic wipes on the machines when we're done with them! I hope you all had a nice Wednesday, and keep those positive vibes around you!!

Garage Fair Freebies

Hiya everyone! One really fun thing about SL is the wide variety of fairs, all those special events for designers to show us new and/or exclusive items, themed or not. The one I explored yesterday was The Garage Fair (that is linked to their blog) and nearly all of the participants have out a crate with a gift for $1L or free. So I bopped around the region, hehe, and I have some gift goodies to show you all.

This bright and cheery dress is a free gift from Revniks. I think the style and the color are great for the warmer weather we're starting to enjoy.

This duo put me in a tropical mood! The dress is from Tukinowaguma and is named Ivona, and I was delighted to be able to pair it up with something that matched so well! That terrific beaded necklace is the gift from Lakshmi, don't the beads really pick up the red/orange from the flowers on the dress nicely? :)

For another fun look, we have this lovely mesh outfit from B!asta called The Fragrance of Summer. It made me daydream of being on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean, and of course that calls for sunglasses so I added the gift from [i] which includes the pair shown and a pair with clear lenses. 

Lots of great tops to share, so I am sporting the white capris I found for free on the marketplace to blog recently, and here they are with this adorable shirt from {ViSion}. I wanted you to see the styling of the front and back, that tail and heart make for a terrific rear view :) Remarkable texturing on the front as well of course, this manages to be cute and sexy at the same time.

Here are 2 of the four generous gifts included in the crate from *Stars*Fashion*, which are a grand total of 3 shirts and a mini dress. These both have quite fun patterns, and I am also showing you the free gift from Legal Insanity. That gold handcuff ring, so detailed and I love that it cuffs two of your fingers together along with having that pretty chain connecting them. You can also see my nails a bit better here, they are polished (in all photos today) with a gift from Weaponized Sugar, a simple French manicure with a few different base shades to choose from. Sometimes simple is easier to match up!

My hair is a newer release from Truth, I've always loved braids but I have to wonder if Game of Thrones brings that out in me even more ;) Every time I get a notice about new hair from there, all I can think is "Shut up and take my lindens!" and that's before I even read it...minor addiction...

Wishing all of you a beautiful day/evening, with magpie hugs and a reminder to let your spirit soar!!

Black Fashion Fair and More

Hiya everyone! There are a few days left of the Black Fashion Fair, two sims full of terrific fashion, exclusive items, and some gifts for free or a linden. The event runs until May 1st, so don't delay. How about a peek at some of the gifts?

This goes to show that not all of the goodies there are limited to black. This gift from Petit Chat sure puts me in a summer mood! The top and the wrap around the bottom are mesh, and the bikini bottom is in system layers. For my nails, I went back to a great marketplace freebie from Xanthe, several colors of a lacy pattern but the yellow was a nice fit.

This may be more of what you expected from the Black Fashion Fair, hehe. The dress from Dead Dollz is so detailed, it's hard to believe it's free. I love the lace texture, and that thigh-high slit shows off the satiny inner texture amazingly. My earrings are a free gift from Maxi Gossamer, and come with a pair of single triangles as well as the triple shown. My shoes are a dollarbie gift from Essenz, and the nails are another marketplace freebie, this time from (AB). That means my entire outfit of dress, shoes, nails, and earrings cost a grand total of $1L, fantastic!!

Plastik is a consistently generous designer, and their free gift at the Black Fashion Fair is no exception. There are several boxes in there, containing everything from dresses to pants to corsets and more, each in thematic black. Above you can see two of them, the Ananke top and the Anael leggings. I am also wearing the free gift from [La Baguette] which is the smudged eyeliner....with my allergies lately, that's totally how I feel.

There are only a few days left in Sn@tch's current fishing round, which instead of an outfit (usually 20+ pieces to mix and match for several looks) is accessories grab bags. I haven't had a chance to do much fishing there unfortunately, but I did manage to 'catch' the cardigan and tutu I'm wearing in the photo above. The cardigan is #19 called Effie, and the tutu is #20 Sonia. I thought they looked really cute together and with the shirt from Plastik in the previous photo, the Ananke top. Lots of mesh there, but fortunately they seem to be playing nicely together :)

I hope you've all survived this Monday with flying colors, and that your upcoming week holds plenty of magic and joy. Hugs to all!!

Luck and Midnight Magic

Hiya everyone! Just a relaxing Sunday, so I figured I'd go with sharing some lucky board/chair and Midnight Mania prizes with all of you. Mostly casual, all well worth slapping a mania board or hoping for your letter to come up :)

How cute is this? If you head to PKC and click their Midnight Mania board, if they get enough clicks (so tell your friends!) this can be on its way to you at midnight. It comes in standard mesh sizes and with one size of the mesh leggings shown. They fit me fine and the hoodie covers our butt so a perfect fit isn't really needed. I did have trouble with my hair, LOL, as most of what I have aren't really suited for being tucked under a hood. Still well worth it :) My nails are another Midnight Mania prize, from Nail it Good, this is from their Rainbow HUD. 

I love visiting Wicked, and their mini-mania only needs 10 people to click so one can get one of many prizes available in the board. They also have 2 lucky chairs right below the mini mania board, no group needed for any of these. I'm wearing 2 prizes from the mini mania board above, the tank top named Tess comes with a HUD to change the bottom layer of tank top to 25 different textures! Various colors and textures, 2 are shown. The studded pants have a HUD to change the stud metal color, that has 5 color choices. You know I love that kind of versatility.

If it's still chilly in your area or you would like a slightly more dressy outfit, this beautiful prize is from one of the lucky boards at Entice. The name is Hazy Shade of Winter, and you can wear it with or without the included pants. Fun color and texture, and the attached belt really adds a lovely touch. I switched my nails to the other Midnight Mania prize from Nail It Good, their Country HUD which has lots of choices in various shades of pink.

Maybe it's not cool enough where you are to be thinking jackets, well this darling spring shirt might be just up your alley. The shirt is a lucky board prize from Hapi*Rabi, they have 2 boards and the one on the right is the one that doesn't need you to join the group. The front says "Hush a bye baby" and the back says "Hush a bye baby, on the tree top, when the wind blows, the cradle will rock". So cute! The capri pants are actually a freebie I found on the marketplace, courtesy of Foxy Fashions, and you get several colors. System pants layer only, nice to fill gaps in your wardrobe.

If the mood strikes to go somewhere you'd like to be a bit more dressed up, how about this lovely dress? This is the Gianna Midnight Pencil Dress from GeMyles, one of their lucky chairs, no group needed. Don't forget to click the Midnight Mania board while you're there, as Gem always has something amazing on there for us :) Lately she's been doing limited edition series, each for one night only, right now I believe it's towards the end of a set of Slink nail HUDs. She offers really wonderful goodies, from shoes to clothing to nails and more.

Well I hope everyone has had the weekend you needed, be that peaceful or productive, busy or relaxing :) I enjoyed mine very much, and I'm ready for whatever this new week will hold. Magpie hugs to all!!

Wayward Part 4

Hiya everyone! I can happily report that I have completed the Wayward Hunt in all its glory, and it is just filled with so many fantastic prizes that I am very glad I took the time. It helps to have a partner who is amazing with hunt hints too :) He's got eagle eyes sometimes, finding things in strange places. Well, let's have a look at some more of what I found!

This picture has several different prizes in it, let's start with the hair...the beautiful gift from Soonsiki (formerly Milk, in the process of changing their name to Besom) appropriately named Treasure and comes with a whole range of color HUDs to please everyone. This is actually from the browns, had a nice auburn feel for me though. My makeup (streak between eyes, dots above brows) is one of 12 tattoo layers from The Wicked Peach, each in a different color. The henna on my hands is the prize from .Things. and comes in 4 different styles, fresh or faded, as tattoo layers and a HUD that worked nicely on my Slink hands but isn't labeled so not sure if it works on other mesh hands as well. Of course, I can't forget my snazzy new dress, which is the prize from VinCue. It comes with a color change HUD for blue or black as well as the pretty pink I've shown here.


Here is that above dress in blue, and now we take a look at some more skins from the hunt. This one is the prize from [theSkinnery] and is called Sakura. There is a HUD included for TMP, but as you can see that doesn't help my Slink hands, hehe, and I'm not great with matching skins that don't have appliers. I also darkened my hair since the eyebrows of this skin are much darker. I included my hand in the picture so you could see my watch, which is one of two colors (each in a gold and silver version) from Swallow. Very pretty!


I really like this skin, particularly the face and the brows. This is the prize from YS & YS, Greta in tone 3, and it didn't come with any appliers so I'm hiding my hands. I could see myself wearing a skin like this, probably a shade or two lighter, on a regular basis :)


Another skin from the hunt is from Style by Kira, this is Vivica and has a bold sophisticated look. Again no appliers, so my hands didn't make the final cut when cropping my photo ;)


Finally I couldn't resist sharing this gorgeous wall hanging from [ free bird ] which is a wonderful store for home decor and adorable pets. Their budgies and hamsters are simply adorable, and don't require tons of expensive food. Of course, these cast iron cuties don't need any such thing, just a nice piece of your wall to adorn :)

My weekend was off to a nice start, as I went to a local artisan farmers market, and then played Mario Kart 8 with their second set of DLC (downloadable content) so it was fun and social without being too busy or hectic. So there's a glimpse of how this magpie spends her Saturdays, LOL. Hope you're all having a good one, hugs to everyone!!

More Wayward Treasures

Hiya everyone! It's time for some more amazing goodies from the Wayward Hunt, which I cannot possibly say enough good things about. Generous designers, fantastic gifts of all types, it's like Christmas and some birthdays rolled into one! Let's have a few more peeks, shall we?


I absolutely adore this outfit from NYU! This nude floral blouse and nude skater skirt are both mesh and the lovely belt is attached to the skirt. I couldn't resist showing the bow in the back, what a sweet touch. My necklace (see the little close up in the middle) is from [atooly] and is one of 2 in their prize, both puzzle pieces. I've blogged the shoes already but I do love them too, lol, they are the prize from Essenz.


This comfy casual shirt is the prize from M. Birdie Story, and the hair is also a prize, this one from Oleander which comes with a HUD for a few other 'dipped' color choices. My cute purse is one of three included in the prize from Luxe, they look the same but one has no built-in pose whereas the one I'm showing you is pose #2 (yes, you also get pose #1). The soft floral print is so pretty!


I couldn't resist this chance to show you one of the furniture prizes along with hair and clothing :) This beautiful bench is from Kalopsia and you get a menu with 10 different single person poses in it. The pillow and blanket make it look so cozy, don't they? Land Impact is only 3 for this bench. My cute striped shirt is one of 3 colors included in the prize from (MORAN), and the lovely hair is one of 3 colors of The Wicking Hair by .Olive. My necklace isn't as noticeable as I'd have liked (even if you click the photo to see it full size) so I'm glad I took a closer picture:
This oh-so-fun necklace is the prize from Moon Amore, called the Traveler Necklace, and has a wonderful HUD to change the colors of the metal, the beads, and the strings. So versatile!


One last photo for the night, here we have the prize from GAJA called Revolution Dress Basic, and it says "Face it You Basic". My hair (sorry that it's hiding the words somewhat) is the lovely gift from Moon, and comes with several color HUDs that each include glittery versions of each color. Fun!! Speaking of fun, how about my little storm cloud purse? That is the prize from Reign, and comes with a HUD to change the cloud and the edging to various colors. My lipstick is one of the 5 included in the prize from PICHI, this one is called Superstay Lipstick in Pink Plaid. It does include a HUD for TMP. One last hunt prize to mention, the nose chain, is one of several variations included in the generous prize from Keystone. You'll find a left, right, and double of each metal: dark gold, gold, iron, onyx, and silver.

A few things I did not mention, the hair in the very first picture is not from the hunt but is from a sale...Ploom is having a 50% off retirement sale, and I couldn't resist visiting :) The hair I'm wearing is Celeste in reds, and was $100L so a nice sale price for sure. Another thing I didn't mention was the capri pants in photos 2 & 3, that is part of a marketplace freebie so just give that a click in the credits below if you're interested. All my nails are from HUDs I've blogged the past two days, and are listed in the credits below.

I am pretty wiped out today so I'll wrap this up with a hug to everyone, and a wish for a magical weekend to you all!! :)

Carry On Wayward Hunt

Hiya everyone! Yep, the hunt has me earwormed with an oldie of a song, and has since I first read about the Wayward Hunt before it even started. I am finding so many wonderful prizes, and I can't wait to share some more with you tonight!

Let's start off with an adorable dress, shall we? This is the Pretty Peasant Dandey Dress from *Epic*. The hair is the prize from MINA called Daisy in pastel colors, the HUD has 5 different choices. To balance it out, I went with neutral accessories like my new shoes from Essenz, their Wayward hunt prize is called Mumbai in cream and comes with a HUD to change the color of the metal. For my nails, I went with one of the HUDs I blogged yesterday as well, from .Figure. called The Nudes Spring.

For this dress, I have a word of caution...when I went to unpack, I rezzed out a row of 6 tall thin boxes (only visible from one side) and could see the dress in 6 colors, but just right click-open only showed me one. I went into edit mode and saw there were yellow and blue prims, so had a vague idea that they needed to be unlinked. While in edit mode I clicked Build -> Unlink, and that enabled me to open each box separately. Otherwise you'll only be unpacking one of the 6 awesome colors of this prize from KELINI and that would be a big loss!! So here is their Casual Chic Dress "Amore" in Gold, but with that extra step I just explained you'll also get it in blue, green, pink, purple, and red trim. As you can see I changed my MINA hair to green, kept the neutral nails, but added an edgy choker courtesy of LE FORME. This is their spiked gold choker but you also receive a silver one in their prize. The bag is by MULIER X 1992 (listed as 1992/MULIER on the hunt blog if you want to find it alphabetically) and is called Obsidian. There's a HUD to change the hardware color, gold or silver, I stuck with silver to match the belt on the dress.

If you want something a little sexier, we have this wild number from Kaithleen's, their Satin Mini 50 Shades Dress in cheetah. Wowsa! :) I added the watch bracelet from Izzie's, a very pretty addition to any outfit. My nails are from Bella Elephante, the prize I blogged from them yesterday.

I got to show off some more accessories along with this beautiful dress from Miseria, their Orchid dress in sherbert. The lovely floral ring on my right hand is the prize from {Imeka}, their Rose Ring, and comes with a HUD to change the rose between black and white, and the metal gold or silver. My bracelet on my left hand is the prize from [BREATHE] and includes their Soothe bracelet in silver, platinum, iron and gold. The necklace from [Fetch] is called Unicorn Tears, and when you find their parcel you receive their Lover's Blood necklace also. My hair in this photo and the previous one is the prize I blogged yesterday from [Due].

Close up time, so you can see this beautiful jewelry and eyes! The eyes are the prize from Mayfly, really intriguing colors, called Luminous in Vernal. They are mesh and come in 4 different shades of the whites of the eyes, and there is a HUD included to adjust all sorts of things :) The earrings and necklace are the beautiful *League* Floral Rocks jewelry set, and includes a HUD to change the color of the metal links, and the gems can be all black or as shown with some smoky looking. I had to change hair to something that would show the earrings, unfortunately one is still half hidden but that's my hair doing that, the earring is just fine :)

Whew, that is a lot of terrific prizes!! I'm not done yet so you can expect to see more photos of the generous prizes from this amazing hunt in future posts. We're almost halfway through the timeline of the hunt, so if you like what you see then I'd suggest you don't hesitate :) Much magpie love to you all!!

Wayward Hunt Wow

Hiya everyone! If you haven't heard about the phenomenal Wayward Hunt yet, please allow me to share my excitement and strongly encourage you to check it out! Click the link to see over 100 fantastic prizes, everything from skin to hair to home furnishings to clothing and jewelry. Since the stores aren't numbered and are listed in alphabetical order, that is probably the easiest way to approach the hunt. I'm sure some people will pick and choose, and hop to only the stores they like best, and that's cool too :) There is plenty to appeal to just about everyone in this hunt, and let me show you a few of the things I've found so far...

This picture makes me giggle because it looks nothing like my usual style...it's like instant bombshell, just add long blonde hair and more tan skin, and take away lots of clothing ;) The hair is the prize from Ayashi and is called Alice, which the bow definitely speaks to as well (it is attached), and the skin is from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and is also called Alice. That comes with Slink hands/feet appliers, as well as one for Tango. The lingerie is by Blacklace and is called Rousing Hearts, and that prize comes jam-packed with appliers for TMP, Omega and Slink. Remember, everything you're seeing on me is standard issue avatar except the hands and feet, so if you have a mesh body or other enhancements it'll look different for you. My nails are yet another prize, the beautiful Bloom Nails from Bella Elephante. I love the bright but sheer colors!

Here I am still sporting the skin from 7DS, and added 2 of the goodies from the Cynful parcel, the Sporty Mini dress and the P.A.C. Chain Heels both in bright red, which you will also receive in dark aqua. The dress comes with a bevy of appliers: Belleza Venus, Cuteazz, Maitreya Lana, Phatazz, Slink Physique, TMP1&2, Omega and Slink. My wonderful hair is another generous prize, it's called Pia and it is from [Due], comes with a fatpack of HUDs so you can change the colors to your heart's content. The nails are from .Figure. who gave us 2 different styles, this being one of the Le Spring color combinations. My necklace is yet another prize,  the Cutter Necklace by 7mad;Ravens. 

When I tried on the prize from Clef de Peau, the skin (Jemma Tan), I was surprised to see that there were no eyebrows and I kinda looked like an alien, hehe. I was lucky enough to find an old group gift from [mock] that was red eyebrows, so they are no longer available but at least I have brows for the picture ;) You will receive Slink hands/feet appliers along with TMP appliers. I noticed afterwards that the photo in the folder says that eyebrows and other appliers are for sale at the store, so that's good to know. My lovely lingerie is one of the gifts from Chocolate Atelier, the Manon bra and panties which I'm showing in blue but you will also receive in pink. Appliers for the lingerie are Lolas, Maitreya, Phat/Cute Azz, Slink Physique, TMP, and WowMeh. Speaking of appliers, the nails are the other gift from .Figure. I mentioned above, these are from the Nudes Spring nails.

Same skin but different hair, this is one of the prizes from Blues and is called Beau in the rainbow colors brown (you also get rainbow colors blonde). The outfit is a one piece mesh jacket/dress from [DAMI] and has a really fun casual feel to it. For my nails, I went back to the HUD from photo 2 :)

I had to do a close up so you could see the beautiful prize from [HASTE] which is this lovely Moon Bindi. It comes with a HUD to change colors of the various gems and the metal as well. So pretty!!

There are dozens more prizes from this hunt that I'd like to show you, but I can only fit so many into one evening and one post :) So that means there will be more posts, but the hunt ends on May 1st so don't hesitate since there are a LOT of great stores participating. The credits section is going to take me ages to get squared away, LOL, so many stores who deserve much credit for being so generous to us. I still have plenty of prizes yet to find as well, which I'm quite excited about. Have a great day/night, magpie hugs!!

More Flawless Finds

Hiya everyone! I have some more goodies to show you from the Flawless Cart Sale & Hunt, plenty of treats to be found in the cheery red poppies hidden in and near the carts.

This fun outfit is in the poppy from J&A Rock Culture, and it includes the mesh tank top, system layer capri pants, and the silver necklace I'm wearing too. The ladybug graphic is so cute, isn't it? I used the nail HUD I mentioned yesterday from Celtic Wolf, the Red Orchid one, as the deep red matched well.

For something a bit more revealing, you could go with the shirt found in one of the DragonLady Designs poppies, which I matched up with this very cute and super short skirt from *Zesty*. There are 3 poppies from DragonLady Designs, system layer clothing without appliers. My nails are one of three colors on the HUD from L'Anguisette, which is called Fandango and includes violet, magenta, and mauve shades.

Entice has this treat for you in their poppy, the striking Wildflower dress in Abstract. I used the Celtic Wolf nail HUD again, and accessorized with bracelets from Beloved Jewelry. Their poppy contains these light gold bracelets with gemstones, along with a darker gold bearing the same pretty gemstones.

How about a trio of party dresses this spring? The poppy from ::JOLI:: contains all three mesh dresses in each standard size, and I can't even choose a favorite so I had to show you all of them :) They combine simple styling with terrific texturing.

For something a bit more dramatic, we have this intricate dress called Voir Mesh Frock from Snowpaws. The long sleeves and the texture give it a more winter feel, but then the skirt is not only short but partly transparent, so this dress is a bit of a mystery to me. I was pleased to have a chance to show off the other Celtic Wolf nail HUD again, Brushed Metals.

Well I don't know about anyone else, but I've got to catch up on things on my tivo, including Game of Thrones! Sounds like a good plan for the night, and I hope all of you have a terrific day/night :) Hugs!
