More Flawless Cart Sale Hunt Treasures

Hiya everyone! I have more prizes to show you from the Flawless Hot Summer Nights Cart Sale & Hunt, found in those cheery looking popsicles at nearly every cart at the sale. Plenty of variety since there are so many vendors, you're sure to find things you enjoy both for sale and as hunt prizes :)

This beautiful skirt and top ensemble is in the popsicle from Entice, it's called Kiss Me and I am really fond of this one. It even earned me a compliment from Xan :) Purple is one of my favorite colors, and the bright green really makes it pop.

I saw two popsicles at the LaVian&Co cart but they both had the same contents, hehe, this stunning dress called Perfect 10. The jacket and skirt are separate mesh pieces so you can wear it without the jacket, and the bodice is a jacket layer. I like the versatility, which makes it suitable for a wider variety of occasions.

I know the colors here don't match, LOL, but I couldn't resist sharing either separate piece with you so please bear with me. The gorgeous corset is in one of 3 popsicles at the DragonLadyDesigns cart, the Komodo dragon corset in grape. There is a lot of terrific detail going on there, please note this is in system layers only with no appliers. The skirt is the popsicle prize from *Zesty* and I love both the style and texture.

Perfect for a sunshine day, this dress is by More Than Ever and is called Lemon Bar. This one just brings a big smile to my face, and if does for you too then find that popsicle at their cart :)

I'm ending the evening with a bikini in case all this makes you feel like a dip in the pool or a quick trip to a beach. This can be found in the popsicle at the Impertinences cart and comes in system layers only. The back has really nice coverage as you can see, and it's a simple style with a very pretty design on it.

Well, I hope everyone has had a good day, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Flawless Cart Sale & Hunt Goodies

Hiya everyone! By now you know I love cart sales, so it's no surprise that I was thrilled to finally get to visit the Flawless Hot Summer Nights Cart Sale & Hunt. They have exclusive items for $100L or less from each vendor, and the hunt is for popsicles on or near each cart that contain free goodies. Most are a 3 color combo, I seem to recall at least one variation but they all have that traditional popsicle shape with a wooden stick, and look like a great refreshing idea for the heat :) So let's see some of the generous gifts you can find in those treats!

Summer certainly means bathing suits, and this one has an American flair for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. This is the prize from one of two popsicles at the TD cart, and I accessorized with the prize from J&A Rock Culture. Their sunglasses look unisex or maybe intended for the guys primarily, but I think their style is an interesting pairing for the feminine bikini. By the way, that bathing suit is 2 separate mesh pieces, each in standard mesh sizes.

The other prize from the TD cart is this fantastic dress, hotter than a two dollar pistol! The stripes really catch the eye, and that style is wonderful with the off the shoulder sleeves and short tight skirt. I added the Charlisse earrings from LUMINESSE, since every great outfit deserves a touch of sparkle.

Bikinis are a staple for summer, so it's good to see another gift in a very different style than the first one I shared, since variety is the spice of Second Life :) This cute polka dot swimsuit is our prize from the Jinx cart, and now I can't stop thinking of the phrase "itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini". I added the earrings from *N@N@* and their cart's popsicle, as the bead and swirl seem to work well with the dots of the bathing suit.

How about another smoking hot dress? This amazing gift from KL Couture is called Irma in lime, and the plunging neckline is sure to turn heads. It's also a perfect frame for the elegant necklace from Beloved Jewelry, which is in one of their popsicles, and the matching earrings are in the other. I can easily see matching them with plenty of other things too, so they'll get a lot of use.

Last goodies for the night, we have a gorgeous dress from SlackGirl called Keysha. The adorable ring is the prize from Look*Me and picks up the various shades of pink in the dress really nicely. We can always count on the Flawless cart sales for bargains and freebies.

Nail note of the night: {Posh Pixels} has a Slink HUD in their cart's popsicle for us, and that's what I used for all the photos tonight. There are several different manicures on there, with abstract designs like fractals, and a variety of colors can be seen in each. Well worth picking up! My hair is one I've previously blogged from Truth Hair's discount room, Eden, with the flowers you can change colors or completely turn off as I had for most of the photos.

I do still have more prizes from the cart sale hunt to show you, so stay tuned for those :) Meanwhile I hope you enjoy the cart sale if you visit it, and are having a terrific day/evening. Magpie hugs to all of you!!

Running Late But Feeling Lucky

Hiya everyone! Tonight's blog is later than I expected, but I've had a wonderful weekend and am back to 'normal' ;) I made a great discovery recently, a new-to-me shopping center called Mofumofu that may be new to SL but I recognized many of the store names from other areas. The best part is that there is a cluster of fantastic lucky boards in the middle of the shopping area, and tonight I'm showing you some of the prizes to be won there.

First we have both prizes from the 2 lucky boards from Chika Labo, the mesh shirt and skirt, both in camo patterns. I don't read/speak Japanese so I have no idea what the shirt says, and google translate didn't recognize the name as anything. Oh well, I'm digging the pink camo and these pieces work really well as separates or paired together.

I left the skirt on to show you the other shirt I won there, this shirt from M.I.X. with the adorable little squirrel. I've blogged this store's prize from the Kiyomizu hunt as well, so they have a branch there also.

Another store I recognize from Kiyomizu is called Karin, and this is actually similar to their prize from that hunt, but this is their lucky board gift from mofumofu. I love the ease of wearing a single mesh piece outfit and getting the look of a top and shorts, and the design on this one is very colorful and pretty. It definitely deserved a second look for that back view :)

My nail note of the night is that I chose to use the lucky board prize from pulcino I've blogged before, from their Kiyomizu branch, since it's versatile and tied in nicely. My hair is the same as yesterday's blog, still loving it! I'm not sure what I'll be blogging about next, as I've fortunately got a few different possibilities to choose from. I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Still Living Like Japan

Hiya everyone! I have another little post for you tonight with prizes from the Live Like Japan Hunt, the one I've posted the past couple of evenings where you are looking for a free origami swan to claim some really great prizes. Let's have a peek at a few more!

This entire ensemble is from Firefly (#22 in the hunt) and is called "Peace". It includes the mini dress, panties, back tattoo (undershirt layer), earrings, and 4 sets of bangles all shown, plus mesh ballet flats not shown. I giggled when I saw the back, it was a rather unexpected surprise but a nice one to share with that special someone. The design on the front is gorgeous! For my nails, Rad Designs #25 was very generous for this hunt and gave us 3 sets of Slink nails, and I am wearing one from their Tips HUD. The nails are black with various designs at the tips.

For something elegant, head to #19 Cheeky Parrot Boutique and find their hidden swan, and you get this gorgeous gown with the amazing back view. The details are so impressive, the chain leading from elegant scrollwork, trailing down your spine and ending in a ruby teardrop, just WOW! I chose another HUD from Rad Designs for my nails, this time the Dragons designs, as there was a deep red that suited well.

Hair note of the night: still the Magika hair sale which is on for a few more days, this sweet cropped style is called Shimmer and I love the waves :) They have a similar style with a bun in the back, but I chose this one because the lack of bun allowed for more waves in the back. All their styles are 50% off so it's a perfect time to find a new 'do or two :)

Okay, despite getting absolutely no sleep before going out earlier, I managed to have a really good day and a very long nap when we got home. It rained all afternoon and evening, but most of our plans with our guest are indoors so that's not a big deal. Magical magpie hugs to all of you!!

A Bit More Living Like Japan

Hiya everyone! Just stopping in real quick with a few more goodies from the Live Like Japan Hunt that I've been enjoying so much. I'm doing shorter blogs this weekend, but hopefully still enough to make you smile :)

Here we have one of the very pretty Ayva's Attic prizes, they're #21 in the hunt and put put 2 origami swans out for us to find. This is the lingerie kimono from the first prize, and I'm a big fan of the style and colors. For accessories, I used both prizes from #9 Nerdology. The mouthie is a precious Sakura Bloom Nom, and in my hand I'm holding a cutie named Shiro n'a Cup. I'm not familiar with him, anyone out there know what he's from? Google wasn't much help because of so many characters all over named Shiro. Did you spot the little sakura bloom in his cup with him? :)

My other photo for the evening is Ayva's Attic second prize, the Nicole Dress. The pattern is wonderful, and I'm loving the slit skirt and deep plunging back. Both prizes are very welcome additions to my wardrobe, along with so many others from this hunt.

I have a busy but fun weekend planned with my guest, so I may not be around as much as usual but I'm excited to be able to sneak in a few goodies regardless :) I sure hope all of you have a wonderful weekend too, magical magpie hugs all around!!!

Live Like Japan Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I've got some prizes to share with you from a fantastic free hunt called the Live Like Japan Hunt. It seems to tie in well with my recent posts of the Kiyomizu Hunt prizes :) For this hunt, you'll be looking for beautiful origami swans, an example of which can be found on the sign at each store with a hint when clicked. The hints are also on the website along with the SLurls. Well, let's have a look-see, shall we?

First we have a lovely Oriental dress from Kandee's Fashions, #5 in the hunt. I love the dragon on it! I accessorized it with the prize from #2 Gachapon! which is an adorable sushi charm bracelet. The rose is a really cute touch among the various pieces of sushi.

This dress startled me for a split second, LOL, and all I can think looking at it is boooooobs ;) Those are built into the mesh of the dress by the way, no added mesh parts or appliers needed. If you'd like this dress too, head on over to #4 [KRAVE] and find that origami swan!

Here we have the prize from Hapi*Rabi, who are #7 in the hunt. The floral pattern is beautifully framed by the red edging, and you can even get a peek of the bow in the back. While the main dress is mesh in standard sizes, it also includes an optional flexi skirt with built in resize script. Just pick the look that suits your mood, and you're all set.

This would be my avi trying to tell me that I'm crazy for thinking it would be raining inside my house! All I really wanted to do was show all of you the fun parasol included with this colorful dress, which is prize #15 from Miss Mischief. The parasol doesn't have a built in holding pose, so you can use it in a variety of your own favorite poses.

All this hunting made my avi hungry, so it's a good thing that Nomiki's Creations gave us this wonderful bento box as their prize. They're #13 in the hunt, and you'll receive the box and chopsticks, with built in eating animation. I just had to do an inset to show you the details of that yummy looking food! I am eating in style, wearing the prize from #11 Deadly Mouse which is a stunning kimono with some really eye-catching textures.

Nail note of the night: in all of tonight's photos I am wearing nails from one of the prizes from Inkheart #12 in the hunt, who has another prize to find that contains a variety of eyes. I have a hair note of the night too, Magika is having a 50% off sale until the 30th so I took advantage of the great bargains.

I managed to get this blog together and finished before my weekend houseguest arrives, but for the next few days I'm not sure if I'll be blogging or not. There's something about enjoyable company, you lose track of time and it changes your routine for the better :) Magpie hugs to all of you!!

Kiyomizu Hunt Treasures Part 3

Hiya everyone! I've got a few more goodies to share with you from the Kiyomizu Summer Hunt, and if you need a new bathing suit you will definitely enjoy this post. Plenty of summery prizes, with a dash of fun at the end, I had a great time preparing this post!

First we have a fun mesh bathing suit with matching pareo from Wish, #67 in the hunt. I did have some issues with the alpha layer (my boobs weren't playing nicely with it?) but your shape might work perfectly with it :) The bikini top and bottom are one piece (linked I guess is more accurate) in standard mesh sizes, and the pareo also comes in standard sizes. The sunflowers are a cheerful addition for sure.

If you need to cool off, this bikini from Shiorin's Mart (#9) is an ideal choice, and I had a blast adding the fans from Bouquet of Magic, #60 in the hunt. Now the bikini is standard sizes of mesh for the top and the bottoms, and the back is narrow but not quite a thong. I gave my bum the night off from modeling, LOL, as I've been taking way too many photos of it lately. How clever is the newspaper print on this bikini? Meanwhile the hand fan with its streamers fluttering in the breeze are so entertaining, and there is a built in pose which is quite convenient. I did an inset of a closer view of the sweet little bunny on my shoulder, who also has a rotating fan to keep you cool while looking adorable :)

I stepped away from the pool to show you a lovely summery dress, this is from shopMinor and is prize #39 in the hunt. The delicate lace and spaghetti straps add a feminine touch to contrast nicely with the rugged denim and seams down the side and at the hem.

Another unique dress you can find in this fantastic hunt is this Gothic Bone dress from 10*4, who are #64 in the hunt. Those skeletal fingers almost acting as a bra make me laugh, and it would work well for Halloween too, so enjoy it now and hang onto it for next season :)

No matter how much fun I had by my pool, the time comes when the night comes to a close and it's time to head inside. Looks like the rain started, hehe, so it's a good thing I visited VJ Eyewear and picked up their Umbrella Pudding in cat #68. It has the hold pose built in, along with the rain you see that can be turned off by clicking the umbrella. The spoon stuck in the side is so cute, and the pudding wiggles when you move :) In addition, I get to show you another gorgeous clothing gift, the tank top from *Ran*. I love the lace and the roses!

Nail note of the night: the cute watermelon designs you may notice on my nails are from prize #71, Frangipani Garden. There are 3 choices on the HUD, with red watermelon and seeds or yellow watermelon with seeds, or green stripes of the watermelon rind with a small flower on it. They are terrific for summer :)

Well, it's time for the credits and then I've got a million things to do...as I am having company this weekend (arriving tomorrow evening), my blog is either taking a vacation for a few days or will have a couple of very small posts if I get a chance. I promise I'll be back as soon as I can, and magical magpie hugs to all of you!!

More Kiyomizu Hunt Treasures

Hiya everyone! I have more fantastic goodies to show you from the Kiyomizu Summer Hunt, and I remembered a really beautiful place to use as a backdrop...the Mieville Asian Gardens I stumbled across during another hunt (Silk Road). Let's get started!

First I posed by a lovely Japanese lantern, while wearing the beautiful prize from #74 Chika Labo. This is their flower dress in cyan, and comes in standard mesh sizes. The colors are great for summer, bright and perky.

This beautiful bridge made a fun backdrop for the prize from SMC, also known as Sencha-An, #55 in the hunt. They are known for their lucky boards in the Kiyomizu shopping center, great mesh clothing and Slink shoes, so they're a pleasure to visit. This dress is a long linen dress, subtle and elegant. I'm also wearing the earrings from #63 Rika Shop, the delicate Saturn earrings you can see a closer view in the upper left. They even rotate slowly, which I love, but you can click them to turn that off if you prefer.

I really needed to show you a closeup of the sunglasses I'm wearing here but couldn't fit it into the photo (as an inset like I did with the earrings above) without missing out on some of the beautiful background, so I went with a separate photo. In the first photo, you can see the front and back of the prize from Cute or Die! #17 in the hunt. I'm so taken with the style, and the utterly adorable bow with ribbons cascading down to the hem in the back! The dress comes in a wide range of sizes, the usual standard mesh ones plus an Av2.0 size and a KEMONO size. Now the sunglasses, I think they added an extra sassy touch to an already sassy dress :) They are the prize from #32 Water Voice, and are called hand sunglasses. As you can see, they are holding a lantern, and the colors in there do swirl and change ever so slightly. The hand is only on the left side of the glasses.

Here's an intriguing outfit, as it comes with a HUD with more abilities than I'm used to seeing. Prize #25 from SHOP KERO includes the top, skirt, and pants (each in standard sizes) to mix and match as you like, and the HUD offers 6 different textures with these cute paw prints in various shades and backgrounds. The added bonus, there are a circle and a square that each have arrows left and right, and one is for the texture scale (I made it bigger in the second image) and rotation of the texture. Play around with them and have fun!!! :)

Finally we finish the post with a lovely kimono from White Shell, who is #28 in the hunt. The pattern on it is beautiful, and I found a terrific building to duck in and take a photo from the doorway. It's a perfect place to take such an elegant photo. The kimono comes in XS and S sizes, and includes undergarment layers and a pair of zouri (sandals) not shown.

Nail note of the night: I couldn't resist going with the lucky board prize from *pulcino*, which I've blogged before but it is located at the Kiyomizu Mall so you can easily stop in when you start your hunting there, and see if it's your lucky day!

Today was quite a day, we got hit with some horribly intense thunderstorms along with a very rare tornado sighting in my county. All is well though, no injuries reported, and I'm grateful for that. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, magpie hugs to each of you!!

Kiyomizu Hunt Time Again!

Hiya everyone! First of all I'm sorry for not posting yesterday, but everything is fine and I'm very excited to be able to share goodies from one of my favorite seasonal hunts, the Kiyomizu Summer Hunt :) I blogged the spring version of this hunt when I first started blogging. I'll offer the same advice now that I did then, since this hunt is a bit different...some of the prizes are at the Kiyomizu Mall, but some stores put their hunt gift at their main store instead, and the best way to get landmarks is to click one of the large boxes hanging above the streets. Go to the website it directs you to, which is a personalized list (with SLURLs) of the cats you've found and the ones you haven't yet. Oh, did I mention you're looking for ninja cats? :) This round it seems to have a name, Nonno, on the posters. Some of them are TINY hidden as well as any ninja could, hehe, others are flattened and hiding behind things like walls...if you're good at finding things in wireframe that's another useful suggestion. Anyway, let's look at some of the prizes!!

This adorable one-piece romper is our prize from **milky-way (#6) and comes in just the one mesh size shown. The lace edging really complements the delicate floral pattern.

Next we have a dress with a bit of a surprise ;) This is our prize from Hi's, #34 in the hunt, and is called Behind String Dress. It comes with a HUD to change among 4 colors, and I was quite amused when I realized the reason for the name! Glad I was wearing pretty underwear for another gratuitous bum shot rear view with extra view. If you aren't wearing your own panties, the back of this is completely bare other than the ribbons holding things together. I think any pair of panties or bikini bottom you like will do the trick if you want to add some modesty.

For this sweet dress that includes a HUD for both color options shown, you'll want to visit Pulcino and find their ninja cat #18. Each pattern for the ETSU Resort Dress has subtle crochet lace, with a faint plaid design happening as well. Very interesting and unusual :)

Isn't this outfit the cutest? :) This is prize #53 in the hunt, from Karin, and is a one piece mesh shorts and tank set in standard mesh sizes. Love the paw prints trailed down the back and across the front. I accessorized with one of the necklaces from Akorat, #37, their tube pendant in red. A blue version is also included, so it can add a special touch to so many of your favorite outfits.

Last but certainly not least, we have some fantastic daisies on two different prizes. The lovely blue romper is prize #10 from Hapi*Rabi, a one piece mesh in standard sizes with attached belt. In a fun coincidence, #11 M.I.X. is offering the lovely (and matching) gift of a Gerbera headband that can be adjusted to fit on your favorite hairstyles.

There are plenty more prizes to show you, this is just a part one, and I've found so many terrific treasures :) It's the kind of thing I just can't keep to myself! Sharing is caring, after all. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, magpie hugs to all of you!!

Cart Sale Freebies

Hiya everyone! I have an exciting weekend event to share with you, a cart sale with free hearts full of goodies for you at most of the carts. The cart sale is sponsored by Rally Alley and the group The New Lucky Chair Stalkers, and I took a picture of the sign in one of the sponsoring stores to show you:
Okay, so let's take a look at a sampling of the free gifts from inside those hearts, shall we?

This fun cherry print dress is from Cookies N' Cream, and I just have to comment on the distinctly hourglass shape of this mesh...if you love curves, this dress will make you quite happy :) The sweet pattern and sexy style are certainly doing it for me!

For a burst of colors and geometric appeal, stop by the Foxy cart and pick up their free heart to find this Ginger outfit in Retro Purple. I'm also very much enjoying the bangles from the heart at the Jeannie's Jewels cart, and was so amused by the !!BH!! (that stands for B*tch Heels) Slink high shoes that I decided you needed a closer view...
These feature pretty yin-yang symbols, great chains and toe rings, a sparkly B charm, and let's not forget the reason this pair of shoes is named Nailed It...those heels! They're creative and attention getting, there's no doubt about that :)

Speaking of getting attention, the 5 hearts scattered around Dark Salvation (the big store you'll see near where you land) contain prizes that are sure to be noticed. This is their prize in heart #3, their black and teal slip dress with slink high shoes. First of all, I'd say it's more slip than dress, LOL, not that that's a bad thing  ;) Second, I'd like to point out the built in teal panties, so pretty that I had to show you another gratuitous bum shot necessary rear glimpse. Check out those fantastic shoes, too! Now in the third view above, you can see I decided to add a mesh skirt which is from Dark Salvation's heart #5 and called LeatherNDiamonds skirt. You also get a nice view of the lacing and bow on the side of the shoes. Helpful hint, there is a second building for Dark Salvation that may also be hiding some of those hearts.

GeMyles can always be counted on for their quality and beauty, and this dress from their free heart on their cart is no exception. This is Gianna satin flowers, and the texturing is terrific. The back has a tiny keyhole opening at the top, and the slim style is really flattering.

One last goodie to share, this is from Mishmash Fusion and is called Told You So Mini Dress in Grunge Lavender. I love the color, as I do anything in the purple and pink families, and this has such a simple, alluring style. Did I mention it's free? Find that heart and enjoy!!

Remember, all of these carts are loaded with amazing $10L bargains, so if you're in the mood to do some shopping but don't have a lot of lindens to spare, this is the place to be this weekend. Go and enjoy, treat yourself :) My nail note of the night is that I used a previously blogged but still available group gift from .Figure. which is free to join.

I hope you are all having a beautiful weekend, find a reason to smile and share that smile with someone who needs it :) Magical magpie hugs to you all!!

Yet More Advanced or Casual Treasures

Hiya everyone! I've got more Advanced or Casual Hunt prizes to share, some of which have a strong summery feel so the timing is terrific! We've had some hot days in my neck of the woods, making me appreciate the laid back fashions of the season in SL even more.

First up, we have this adorable tank top and shorts from Kitty Shape Wears, who are #14 in the hunt and this is their Casual path prize. They are separate mesh pieces, each in standard sizes, and with the flip flops pattern on the top, I was so grateful to Rupsy Roo (#13) for an assortment of flip flops to wear! Their advanced path prize contains not only the Sunny color shown, but also aqua, black, blue, coral, green, pink, purple, and red! Each also comes in a version for mesh feet or standard feet, but I had to adjust the mesh feet version slightly for my slink flats. It was mostly a height adjustment, even though I wore the enclosed shoe base for mesh feet. It only took a few seconds and was well worth it though :)

Next we have the advanced path prize from Kitty Shape Wears, this playful Watermelon Sundress, which comes in standard mesh sizes and made me smile with its juicy looking print. I paired it with the green flip flops from the Rupsy Roo advanced prize I referenced above. 

You'll need to click this picture to see it better, but I decided to relax in my new bathing suit, courtesy of Country Couture (#15) and their casual path prize. In order to kick back though, I really needed one of the 7 poses in this daybed by QUE RICO Design, who are #22 in the hunt and this is their advanced prize. The bathing suit is mesh and comes in standard sizes, with a pretty plaid texture in soothing colors.

Next I decided to hop in my pool, which was a great opportunity to show you one of the prizes from X-clusives Animations, who are #16 in the hunt. The inner tube is their casual path prize, and has 9 female poses and 7 male poses to choose from. This gave me a chance to show off another bathing suit, this one being from Cheeky Parrot Boutique named Slinky. They are #17 in the hunt path, this is their casual path giftie, and it comes with an Omega applier as well as the system layers shown. I also decided you deserved a gratuitous bum picture view of the back to see the amount of coverage you get back there...I'd say it's alluring without being over the top, everything hanging out ;) Also you probably noticed that I changed my hair, store #19 in the hunt is Alli & Ali and I'm rocking their Joana hair (casual prize) in #7 of the 11 color choices included. It looks great for the pool, easy curls and a convenient cute length.

Finally, I decided to dry off and change hair again, this time to a pretty blonde 'do from the A&A advanced prize named Joanina. This one comes in 11 colors also, with the added bonuses of a color streak (not shown) and color changing barettes. On the left I'm enjoying the advanced prize from Cake Fox #20, their Veranda Bench. As for my outfit, this is just a small portion of the advanced path prize from Cheeky Parrot Boutique. They generously included a top and pants for a jumpsuit look as I'm wearing, or a long formal skirt (not shown), plus shorts and a mini skirt prim if you prefer. Versatility is fun! I really had to share the details on the back with you though, that amazing Celtic scrollwork look. Be sure to click the picture to see it full size :)

Whew, this was a really big post with LOTS of treasures to share! I do have a nail note for the night: Hello Dave put out a new free gift for everyone, no group needed, in their main store that you can actually see in the first two photos...that set of bottles on the wall? This is best suited for your dresser, vanity table, or a bathroom shelf perhaps, and features some decoration only creams/scrubs along with 5 bottles of nail polish in bright summery shades that will provide a Slink manicure when clicked, along with nail polish remover that puts your nails back to default bare nails. Please click here to see the creator's Flickr photo with description if you'd like more info and a much better view :)

Hope you've had a beautiful day, and fun plans for the weekend :) Yes, relaxing and doing nothing at all counts as fun plans if that's what you need after a long week. I've got a farmers market to go to and a Fathers Day dinner at a vegan Chinese buffet (none of us are vegan or vegetarian, their taste and quality are just exceptional!) tomorrow then just relaxing on Sunday. Magical magpie hugs to all of you!!
