Monday Mania and More

Hiya everyone! I am eagerly anticipating some new hunts starting in September, but for now I have a fun mix of treasures found at midnight ;) That's right, you know I love my midnight mania boards as well as lucky chairs/boards, so they are the sources of most of what I'm showing tonight. There are always goodies to be found in SL!


I couldn't resist sharing yet another beautiful prize from Wicked, this time a Mini Mania prize called Bella Dress in Teal. This comes with a HUD that provides 20 color choices for the strings (neckline and waist) and 3 colors for the skirt (teal, white, and black). On the left you can see it all in teal, and on the right I went with the black skirt and white strings to make them easier for you to see. If you have been admiring my sunglasses, I have good news about them...they're free too! They are actually a prize from the Men Only Hunt 6, which just started on the 29th and runs until September 13th. There are some unisex prizes (tattoos, hair, etc.) so I will be showing a few more goodies soon as Xan and I enjoy the hunt bit by bit :)


I heard about a store with several Midnight Mania boards from a group and had to check it out of course, so now I get to share the bounty with you. ColdAmbitionz is where to find them, head for the back wall and get to clicking! This is their Lundan Dress Blue, standard mesh sizes are provided.


Another prize that can be found on ColdAmbitionz' midnight mania boards is this sexy Mia Dress which includes a Lolas applier, and really makes me wish I'd found myself a ribcage tattoo already! I think some beautiful little birds (doves?) escaping my ribCAGE would be a fun one to have peeking through all these dresses that show some midriff. 


For my final outfit, I headed to my bedroom as this seems delightfully suited for it. This was a Midnight Mania prize from Jinx, although from its name it seems to have once been a group gift. Since I wasn't a group member yet at the time, it is new to me and I love it! It includes the top, frilly panties, and shoes for Slink high feet. The bows are adorable, and I showed a closer view of one of the bows so you can see not only that but the pretty floral design of the fabric. 

Nail note of the night: I visited a new-to-me store called PS Nails and was delighted to see midnight manias, a Mini Mania for group members, a lucky board, and this free group gift called Art Deco Deep featuring 4 colors for Slink hands and feet. The group is free to join, so that is always a plus.

I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Can't Stop the Signal

Hiya everyone! One nice way to relax after a busy weekend is to go fishing for pieces of an outfit at Sn@tch, and this round of fishing (it changes every two weeks) is a 20-piece set called Can't Stop The Signal. There are two different shirts, one mesh and one system layers, system pants, a mesh skirt, a necklace, boots, makeup and more. I have combined them in various ways to share with you, but you can mix them up however you prefer :) All you need is a 7Seas fishing rod, and you can fish without bait to save lindens as I do while there.

Here you can see the mesh Asia Tank Top which is piece #12 along with the underwear layer pants #4 which I chose to show you the boots a little better, they are #16 and #17 for the left and right boots. The alpha layer for the boots is #18 and the shoe shape is #19. They have great details, as do all of Sn@tch's creations really, like the crosses on the back pockets of the jeans.

This is the system layer cropped sweater #8 (there is a separate Omega applier to be caught as well) with the pants layer of the Second Skin leather pants, #3, with flare leg cuffs #1 and 2. I accessorized with the Love Necklace, which is #15 and can be seen closer in the inset. 

I kept the sweater on but changed to the mesh skirt which is called Phoebe and is #20. This piece is bagged so you can unpack it to find all the various sizes plus the alpha layer. I love the contrasting panel on half of the front, along with the pockets in the back. 

For our final glimpse I have added two elements, a beautiful jacket and some dramatic eyeshadow. The jacket is #7, the mesh Jasmine Silk Jacket which is bagged so you can unpack to find the mesh sizes and alpha layer inside, and just look at that design! The Asian characters and the dragon on the back are simply exquisite. As for the eyeshadow, it is #14 and called Temptress Eye Makeup in white. Since I forgot to wear it before taking the shot on the left (oopsie sorry), I felt it even more important to show you a closer look for the inset :) Definitely an intense look, and it works well with the various outfits you can assemble from the other goodies.

Nail note of the night: the ChiMia Dragon nails from last night's post seemed all too appropriate tonight as well :) For my hair, I felt like something different so I went with a Little Bones group gift. The group isn't free to join, but with a small fee you can have access to about a dozen previous gifts, with a variety of color HUDs. 

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Weekend Treasures

Hiya everyone! I have a variety of free treats to share, so let's dive right in, shall we?

Dresses like this make me feel like I need about a hundred more group slots, LOL, as this is a Third Life group gift from Jinx. It is free to join and entitles you to a host of gifts around the grid, so it can be a beneficial group to use a group slot for. The dress is called Sophia Dark in Moss, and there are 2 separate layers each in standard mesh sizes. The base layer is a solid color with no decoration, and the top layer is darker lace with the belt and bow attached. It really is a lovely look, and you could wear it without the top layer if you wanted something more simple. As for me, I love bows and I love lace so both layers would be my first instinct.

For another beautiful strapless dress, head to Wicked and check out their lucky chairs, and you may be fortunate enough to win this amazing prize or many others. Don't forget the mini-mania board which locks frequently and changes each time. This is Morgan in black, and comes with a HUD to change the laces, top, or leather color to black or grey (I am showing them in grey above) and 3 color choices for the metal. That is the gold on the back, the eyelets holding the laces in place, and the other choices are silver or black. I'm all about details, so I adore the touches like the tassel in the front at the waist, and the sheer lace layer among the skirt layers, and the way the grey color choice shows off the lace design on the bodice so nicely. (By the way, still wearing/loving my Nerdy Girl tattoo there!)

This dress has a decidedly more casual feel, and just look at that tasty fruit design! This is a lucky board prize at the Kiyomizu Mall closing, from **milky-way. I love the bow of course, and the pattern is fun for so many daily occasions. There are several lucky boards there and the number has been growing, so don't hesitate to check it out while the sim is still available.

Another delightful lucky board prize (from a store I had initially discovered at Kiyomizu) is this adorable romper from SweetCAT. Their main store has a board with the same romper in a different pattern that I have blogged previously, so it's no surprise that I love this one too :) I also included a closer view of my nails, which leads me to my nail note of the night...

My beautiful Dragon nails are from a lucky chair at ChiMia, who offer a wide selection of nails, clothing, furniture and fun items like flying brooms. There are 4 lucky chairs along with 2 midnight manias, and this set of Slink hand/feet nail HUDs offers 8 background color choices for the tribal style dragon. Now if only I can get lucky enough to win their HUDs with kitty faces...

Busy day, the Community Day event I went to was very fun and included fireworks that had been delayed since June. That was after very little sleep and a farmers market visit in the morning, so I'm pretty drained now but in a good way since I had so much fun :) Hope you're all having a nice day/evening/weekend, many magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

More Cart Wash Sale Bargains

Hiya everyone! I have been shopping some more at The Wash Cart Sale, and I do have some more bargains from there to show you, but never fear as I do have some freebies to share as well :)

This sexy number will surely turn up the heat in any room! This midnight mania prize from Mishmash Fusion is called Halter Dress Shimmer Satin in cream, and that texture is exquisite. I couldn't resist showing the pretty little double bows in the back, and yes I am still wearing my tattoo from Nerdy Girl that I showed you yesterday ;) I really don't want to take it off, loving it that much.

This lovely ruffled dress is a lucky board prize from SaNaRae, and you will need to join a free group to claim any of the lucky board prizes, but there are also some free gifts available as well for group members. There are some goodies for the guys as well, so bring your favorite male avatars too.

Okay, it's time to show off my latest Wash Cart Sale purchases :) These are both from Somnia, and you know how I love clothing with HUDs to provide versatility. The tank top is called Spring Journey Specials, and its HUD provides 6 color choices. The capris are Haven Voyage Specials, and the HUD for them is splendid as it provides 6 fabrics colors plus several belt colors and buckle colors with different belt textures too! You can see in my photo that you can go with a seashell buckle, starfish buckle, or plain solid buckle. So much variety, and only $10L for the top and $10L for the capris! You can't find that kind of value everyday, but we definitely can find it at the Cart Sale.

This adorable dress is the newest group gift from Jinx, and it is free to join their group. Even more exciting, I recommend staying in the group because they are in the process of opening a new store with a Fantasy theme and the group members will get early access that includes a free hunt! Join the group, check previous notices, and you will find a link to all the pertinent info. (I am not posting it here in case she wants it to stay in the group only) Just a couple more days until the opening, so exciting!

My nail note of the night deserves a photo to show you the precious panda nails I bought at the Cart Sale from Somnia :) They are in complementary colors for the clothing above, and just look at those sweet little faces. 10 lindens gets you 6 background colors (grey was used in a few prior photos above, the orange is a bit hard to see on my thumbs) to go with a wide variety of outfits. I like the wine color (seen here on my index fingers) for the dress I am wearing.

It has been a busy day but at least I got an early start tonight, so my blog is right on track. Weather and health permitting, I'll be going to a Community Day event in my local town tomorrow, so I am definitely looking forward to that. Hopefully it won't put me too far behind in my blogging routine :) I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend ahead of you, many magpie hugs to each of you!!

Midweek Magpie Magic

Hiya everyone! We are halfway through the week, and tonight's post is full of variety again. I think tonight's goodies have a more casual overall vibe to them, ranging from urban to playful. I'm not sure what kind of wardrobe mood I'm currently in the most, probably a big part of why diversity in my inventory is essential :)
First we have a sexy leather outfit from Kandee's Fashions, which can be yours for a single linden as their prize for the Fashion Play Hunt. It includes the system layer pants and mesh tank top in standard sizes. I have accessorized it with some beautiful pumps by Karin from a lucky board at the Kokoa Fair Park. It is for Slink Mid feet and comes with optional mesh socks, not shown. I love how the softness of the floral print on the shoes contrasts the leather and buckles of the outfit. My beautiful eye makeup is one of 3 goodies in the free gift from Sn@tch at The Wash Cart Sale, the others being a pair of heart shaped sunglasses and a lipstick tattoo layer. I had to include a closer look so you can see the fun flicked out eyeliner and the smoky aqua liner and shadow.

I kept the pants from the Kandee's Fashions outfit on while showing you this gift from Vicarious Youth at The Wash Cart Sale, one of several items on their cart for $0L. This Open Front Hoodie has a cute panda print on it, and comes in standard mesh sizes for female and male along with child, TD baby and TD kid. I think I need a separate folder just for winter cuteness.

The Kokoa Park Fair I mentioned earlier for those pretty shoes has other lucky boards around as well, but for this adorable dress you don't even need to get lucky. Le Muguet has this labeled as a demo gift, so you can get this sweet summer dress in macaroon for $0L :) I have included a closer look of the tasty looking macaroons on the hem, along with the pretty lace edging.

My fondness for Midnight Manias comes into play here again, hehe, as I show you the latest from Rowena Springflower. This charming dress is named Mandy, and comes with a HUD to change among 5 color options, two of which are shown above. That silky look with the lace trim is a real stunner! Don't forget, there are lucky boards and mini manias right there along with the midnight mania boards, so plenty of opportunities to win treats.

Nail note of the night: I am happily sporting again one of the nail bargains from La Boheme that I shared with you last night as well, their $10L Persian Lace Gold that can be found at the Wash Cart Sale along with several others at that same low price. I will be showing more goodies from there I'm sure, as I can't resist such afforable treasures!

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

Cart Sale Bargains and More!

Hiya everyone! I am very excited about The Wash Cart Sale, and I know I'm not alone in that feeling :) I got there so early after they opened that a few carts weren't even set up yet, but I know I will be back so it's not a big deal. Everything there is $10L or less, the bargains are absolutely amazing!! I also have some lucky board prizes to share, and even a dollarbie hunt prize, so let's have a look...

This sweet frock is a lucky board prize from **milky-way, at the soon-to-close Kiyomizu Mall. Several of the stores have set up lucky boards for the final days, and this lovely linen dress is one of the free gifts to be won. 

Another beautiful prize to wish a fond farewell to Kiyomizu Mall is this lucky board gift from [Le muguet] called *girly mood*. With the delicate lace layers and cute tube top, this sure does live up to its name! This includes a mesh top and skirt, along with a system layer for underneath the breasts, rather like a shelf bra, for added modesty just in case the mesh moves in a way you don't expect.

We can always rely on Somnia to provide wonderful gifts for any occasion, and the Cart Sale gave them a chance to share this pair of mesh Lumber Patch shirts with us for free. Standard mesh sizes in each lavender and peach are included, and I love the knot at the bottom. For my nails, I went with another favorite of mine at the Cart Wash, La Boheme, and one of their amazing sets of nails available for $10L. 
This is a better look at the various colors included in the [LB Persian Lace Gold] Slink manicure HUD on sale for a mere $10L. I love the stylish gold trim, and the 10 lovely base colors mean that you should be able to find something to work with any outfit. In the first two photos I went with the white from this HUD.

That dollarbie hunt I mentioned in the beginning of the post is the Fashion Play Hunt, which has paths for men and women, so there are plenty of possibilities for everyone :) I am wearing prize #2 from Dressed By Lexi, this stunning mesh gown which comes with standard mesh sizes and the bow shaped brooch for the bodice, separate so it can be worn with or without. I am showing off a couple more Cart Wash purchases with it, both from Nerdy Girl and both terrific :) My shoulder tattoo which says Always is a Harry Potter reference (the A is the Deathly Hallows symbol) and I am a huge fanatic of the series, so this tattoo made me ridiculously happy. I am showing the soft version but it also comes in Bold, and there are Omega and Slink appliers included for your $10L. My nails are even a Harry Potter homage, closer look below.... 
If you have seen the movies and/or know the books, you will recognize the color schemes here as being representative of the school houses. I wore Ravenclaw blue above, here it's still on my thumb but more visible are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, and the Deathly Hallows symbol on my ring finger. Just $10L for this terrific HUD!

I feel like this is just a slow week for me, like I am running behind each night and not even sure why, but I can't end without sending fond wishes for a great day/evening to all of you, and magical magpie hugs!!

This and That Tuesday

Hiya everyone! I have a variety of goodies to share with you tonight, predominantly from the Popping Penguin Hunt Under The Sea which is a $1L hunt with some really nice prizes. My love of midnight mania boards is in evidence as well :)


This adorable penguin shirt from AccessoriZe is prize #8 in the PPH hunt, which also includes a men's t-shirt fitmesh version, and I have to admit that the name of the women's prize mentioning Wings surprised me. I didn't see those wings on the back in the photo on their blog, so when I saw them it made me squee! :) Those wings are an attached treat, glad I was wearing my hair up or I might not have noticed them as clearly. I paired the shirt up with a freebie I found at Cupcake Clothing, called Summer Freebie, which is where I found the next PPH prize I'm showing you...


Here is the PPH prize from Cupcake Clothing, and it sure does fit the Under The Sea theme beautifully. In the preview photo on the blog, I thought it was a jumpsuit actually because of the pose they were in. I love the style of this dress though, the pretty belt and sexy slit on the left side of the skirt. It is breezy for summer, and the cheerful colored fish are a great touch. They remind me of Dr. Seuss :)


Let's say you have a formal event to go to, perhaps a wedding or a date at an upscale club, so you prepare to go shopping for a new outfit but look at your linden $ balance and just cringe...what's a gal to do? Here is a fantastic suggestion, go to Entice and join their free group, and claim their free gifts! We have this stunning gown called Waltz With Me in Earth, with a HUD for all 3 colors I'm showing above, and there is a second gift of the Waltz With Me earrings (inset shows them much better) with a HUD to change the stones to 3 colors to match the gown colors. The slit caused by the draping of the skirt is sexy without being overly revealing, so you could wear this for a huge variety of occasions. One free group to join, 2 coordinating free gifts, and you're ready to hit the town!


Midnight Mania boards are always a cause of many smiles for me, although lately I've been getting mostly notices of not enough clicks. Fortunately that was not the case here, as the boards at Precious Designs and Designs by Rowena usually do lock :) This beauty is from Precious Designs and is called PD ~ Little Things Dress, and comes with a HUD that provides 6 different color themes, 3 of which are shown above. I am quite a fan of theirs, in no small part due to their generous use of HUDs to provide us with such variety for each article of clothing. 

Nail note of the night: any time La Boheme takes part in a hunt, I am always eager to pick up their prize, and the PPH Under The Sea dollarbie prize is no exception. So the shades you are seeing on my tips and toes are their [LB Seaside Gold] and [LB Seaside Silver] which each feature a delicate seahorse and little sparkles in the gold or silver, on 10 different color wavy backgrounds each. Truly stunning!!

Well I am running behind but I am never too far behind to send much appreciation to my readers, along with wishes for a beautiful day/evening and many magpie hugs to each of you!!

Lucky Boards Treasures

Hiya everyone! I would like to introduce you, or for some of you reintroduce you, to a wonderful store I found in the soon-to-close Kiyomizu Mall called :SMC:. They were one of the first to clear out their store when the closure announcement was made, but I checked their main store and found they'd simply moved all those lucky boards to that location. I was so glad I knew where their main store was located! Some of these boards have been around a while, others are newer, yet all the prizes are terrific additions to my inventory :) I have just a small sampling to show you, hope you enjoy!

This fun outfit combines 3 different lucky board prizes, which is one of the noteworthy aspects of these boards, the ability to mix and match them. The top is called Cropped Blouse FTW, and the shorts are Denim Shorts-D which I believe is for Dark. How cute are the hearts on the back pockets? :) Even the shoes are a lucky board prize, Ladies Loafer-TT Brown. I'm guessing the TT is for two tone, as there are solid brown ones as well. These shoes come in Slink flat feet and default avatar feet varieties, and include the frilled cuffs as well as an applier for Slink feet for the optional socks.

Here you can see that I've worn the top from the first photo again, but dressed it up with two other lucky board prizes. The skirt is called Maxi Skirt PC, and there are other colors on the lucky boards as well. Our shoes are a very cute pair for Slink flat feet or default avatar feet (both sizes included) called Ribbon Sandals-PNK. The gentle plaids make me smile and put me in mind of a nice summer or autumn evening.

I left those pretty sandals on to wear with another lucky board prize, the adorable Romper-PNK with tiny polka dot pattern and cute bows at the waist and back of the neck. They are attached and not separate, so we don't have to worry about trying to adjust them just right. There is also a blue version on the boards if you prefer a different color :)

Speaking of blue, how about this sweet and simple dress? It is called Short Sleeve Dress-BLU and has those cute white collar and cuffs attached, reminds me of Little Orphan Annie a bit. There is a red plaid version on the boards along with a black version. The comfy looking sandals are another prize, Leather Sandals WE-BEG which might stand for beige. Like the other shoes found here, there is a version included for default avatar feet as well as the Slink flat foot version. There are other colors on the lucky boards as well, so be sure to check them out!

Nail note of the night: I wanted something neutral yet pretty, and went with a marketplace freebie I've blogged a couple of times recently, the Valentines gift from Who What. They have a white chocolate and dark chocolate choices on the HUD, and I stuck with the white chocolate tonight. You can tell these are becoming one of my go-to favorites lately.

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

Shake it Off at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! I have been fishing at Sn@tch to get the components of a set of outfits called Shake it Off, for which I use my 7 Seas fishing rod without bait so after the initial purchase of the rod itself (which I've had for several years and really enjoy fishing) it is free to fish. There are 22 pieces you will be fishing for, including 6 mesh shirts (each one is bagged so all sizes and an alpha are included) and 5 pairs of pants in a system layer, boots, earrings, a choker, and makeup too. Plenty of goodies to mix and match! There are a few days left for this outfit, and I haven't gotten it all yet (really wishing I had the fishnet shirt for underneath to show you more variety) but here are some glances at what I've fished up so far...

This shirt is #4 Human Being Tank, unpacked to find the standard mesh sizes and alpha layer in the bag. The pants are #12 Shake it Off Plaid Pants in purple, a system pants layer with the studded belt as part of the texture. The combat boots are for default avatar feet and are #14 and #15 because we catch the left and right separately :) The necessary shoe shape is #23 and the alpha layer for the boots is #24.

Here we see tank top #1 Keep Calm, and the wording on there is perfect! I switched to the red pants which are #13 and again are a system pants layer, and our same funky combat boots with the steel toes. Because I wore the red pants, I figured the lipstick would be appropriate here to match so I am also showing #20 Cream Lipstick in scarlet.

How about a flower to brighten your day? This is #5 Daisy Tank Top, matched up with the grey plaid pants which are #11 to catch. I like the effect of the outfit being almost monochrome until you see the bright pop of the daisy center. 

This shirt made me chuckle, as I know plenty of people who would wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment! I tend to mix my black or neutrals with jewel tones but there is a fair amount of black in my wardrobe, RL and SL actually. If you catch #3, you will be able to sport this shirt as well :) The cool shade of aqua pants are #9 and a system pants layer as the others are.

Nail note of the night: I have a great match for these outfits from TLB (The Little Bat), from their Midnight Mania boards, a Slink HUD called Resurrect. Various colors with black tips and black crosses, they work really well with the vibe of the photos.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Saturday Variety

Hiya everyone! I have some treats to share from lucky boards/chairs and midnight manias, a nice mixture of freebies in some fun places. I hope you all enjoy tonight's magpie treasures as much as I do.

First up, we have a lucky board prize from milky-way, a store I have been a fan of for a very long time. You will need to join the free group to be able to claim a lucky board prize, but it's well worth it. The cute striped shirt is included in system layers, and the mesh skirt with the delicate ruffles comes in Small, Medium and Large sizes. I used to be afraid of mixing patterns, but these just look so right together, and the color coordination helps tremendously.

For something casual yet pretty, look no further than this comfy floral t-shirt from M&A. It is a lucky board prize, comes in standard mesh sizes, and in case you can't read it the shirt says, "Your smile made me happy". I paired it with a lucky chair prize from Wicked, their Laura Jeans in Night. Standard mesh sizes and a HUD is included to change the metal colors (rivets on the back pockets mostly) to your choice of 6 colors.

The jeans from Wicked also helped me display another shirt (no Donald Ducking here, LOL) which is a giggle-worthy Nerdy Girl creation. It's named Hugging Unicorns Women's Tee, and was a Midnight Mania prize (remember, they change daily so it may come around again soon, check often!) that I couldn't resist clicking. I picture a child and parent seeing this happy unicorn couple in a forest, and the parent having to explain to the curious child that the unicorns are just hugging, don't worry about it dear :) 

My last treasure for the night is this breezy little dress from *pulcino* which I found on a lucky board at the Okinawa Summer Festival. There are a few other lucky boards scattered around, so be sure to take the time to explore and enjoy. The dress is called ETSU resort dress and comes with a HUD containing 5 color choices. It comes in the usual mesh sizes.

Nail note of the night: for all of tonight's photos, I am wearing another lucky board prize from milky-way, Natural Nails for Slink Hand. There are a handful of lovely pastel colors to choose from on the HUD. As with their other main store lucky boards, you'll need the free group tag to click if your letter comes up.

I had a really enjoyable day and I hope all of you did too, whether out and about or just relaxing. Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
