Leap Day Lovelies

Hiya everyone! Leap Day is one of those quirky things that you can only celebrate every 4 years and nobody seems to know what to do for it. So I used it in the title, but my magpie treasures for the day are actually unrelated. Instead, I visited the new Kiyomizu Mall (the second version in the Meilan Bay sim is still open but maybe not for long, I saw some empty stores there but some have setups both places) on the sim of Nepessing, and it looks a lot like the original on the old Little Cat Green Eyes sim. There are lucky boards galore, along with a few gifts for the new opening, so I suggest you wander and enjoy :) In the credits I am linking each directly and it's not a fixed landing spot so you should get there directly, and if you're there and want to visit another from the credits I suggest opening the link and show on map so the red arrow beacon can lead you there.

My first treat of the night is a Lucky Board prize from Karin, who I discovered at the original Kiyomizu Mall and have been a fan of for some time. She is very generous with her store's subscribers, by the way! This is their Shift OneP LB Black with its lovely floral pattern and a sweet touch of lace at the neckline and cuffs. If your initial shows up, you will win this in standard mesh sizes. 

Another store that makes me very happy is *pulcino*, and this is found right outside their newest branch as an opening gift. Just look to the left of the doorway and you can buy it for $0L. This is their Plantae camo dress in Ruby, and I actually didn't see it as a camo pattern at first but more of an abstract design. I really like that color, and the style is appealing with the single strap and playful hem.

Be sure to visit M*Motion and you can win this soft beauty, their C15-21 Spring Cardigan LB. The color is so delicate, and those buttons down one side are so well textured along with the cozy looking knit. I wish you all luck that your letter comes up :) An important note is that included with this but not shown are system layer spring dot socks with a Maitreya applier. The socks come up to mid-thigh or maybe even a bit higher, so I'm thinking maybe a nice pair of boots that don't need any special feet would be a useful pairing if you don't have a Maitreya body/feet.

White Shell has a simple gown on their lucky board at the new mall with a charming pattern to complement the style well. This comes in a single mesh size, so part of the luck needed is that it will fit properly ;) 

I do have a nail note of the night, another lucky board prize from the new Kiyomizu Mall...this is from *GUARAN-DOU* and is their Kikka nails for Slink. The design is gorgeous, black and red divided by a diagonal gold stripe and adorned with 2 tiny golden flowers. I wore them with everything tonight as you can tell, couldn't resist!

Well I hope this day signifies a leap into spring, as I am ready for that beautiful weather and will even have my allergy medicine refilled tomorrow in preparation ;) Okay so honestly it is a year round thing that just ran out, but it does seem like auspicious timing. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, and magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

CCB Anniversary Goodies

Hiya everyone! I have another event's anniversary round of gifts to share with you tonight, the Creators Collection Box 1st Anniversary. There are a few gifts on a wall in the center, and if you look around the room you'll see that most of the displays have a gift for us as well. There is a wide variety among the goodies, and I've selected a few random favorites to show you.

First we have my outfit for the evening, S@BBiA's gift Striped Dress which comes in a single mesh size that fit me very nicely. I had fun adding this Meow Collar from LDG and was sure to show you a few of their 5 color choices from the included HUD. That HUD also features such options as resize, brightness, glow and bling. There is also a Bow Wow version in their gift, so if you're a dog person or cat person you are covered :)

If you are looking for something else to adorn your lovely neck, how about this elegant Antique Lace Choker from DownDownDown? Just click it to bring up a menu, and you can choose from 9 lace textures and 5 metal textures, just a few combos of which I am showing here. I love how the slightly darker edging is a gentle contrast and adds to the antique look, and the metal choices are quite pretty.

The joy of SL food is that it has no calories, no gluten, no preservatives, is completely healthy and your avi will always look wonderful while eating it. Case in point, our gift from Who What is this adorable lollipop cookie which comes in 3 flavors (dark is shown, milk chocolate and strawberry also included with the heart topper being the difference) and when you click this cutie, it changes the icing color and poofs stars. So much fun!

No nail note tonight, I went with the Slink default HUD again today. It's been another hectic day but I am glad to be here as always, and trying to decide on what to share tomorrow. It'll be a surprise, even to me! :) Have a joyful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to all of you!!

Shiny Shabby Anniversary Treats

Hiya everyone! I had a serious case of SL crash-itis but I am back and pleased to be so :) I am bringing you some terrific anniversary gifts from the Shabby Shiny event, no group is needed for these generous goodies just a viewer that doesn't mind really crowded sims (like mine apparently does!). The event runs until March 10th, so plenty of time to visit and browse for fantastic bargains and lots of gifts.

My first look of the night is a gorgeous gown from PEQE called Lady of Time in Pink. She comes in standard mesh sizes and features such a lush color and texture, sure to be a hit wherever you wear it. 

Next we have a really intriguing dress from American Beauty, their Turtle Chin Knit Dress in Dark Grey. This made me giggle as I'd never heard that term before, turtlenecks but not turtle chin, but it's clear that it comes up higher than a turtle neck, keeping our pretty chins warm when it's breezy out. My lovely earrings weren't very visible so I went in for a closeup...they are multiple big hoops (one piece though) from Minimal. Jewelry is always a pefect gift, isn't it? :)

This very cute outfit is actually one mesh piece, our fun present from M.Birdie simply called 2015 Last Winter Gift. The outer layer shirt says Dairy Made Ice Cream, and the color did put me in mind of some nice rich chocolate. The attached skirt has more of a reddish tone, and I think the alpha layer isn't playing nicely with my shape (that's been happening a lot lately but usually in the boob area) so even the Large size looks a bit odd at the hem. This outfit is provided in Small, Medium, and Large sizes by the way :)

For my last look of the night, I went with a very sexy teddy, and a grumpy looking teddy ;) My lingerie is from Apple May Designs and is their Izzie in Black, which is provided in system layers (shown) along with appliers for Belleza, Maitreya Lara, Omega, Slink Physique, TMP, and even Baby Bump. There are also 3 sizes of bows for the back, a very sweet touch. My bear on the right is from Pewpew! and is their Mad Teddy Classic, with built in hold pose. Not sure why he's so cranky, snuggling with him didn't seem to help but I'm enjoying his company regardless.

No nail note of the night (SL default HUD again) but a hair note since this is one of several hair gifts to be found at Shiny Shabby, this one from Elikatira. This is their [e] Kiki in Exclusives, whose HUD has 20 choices including 12 colors and 8 ombres. I will show my SL age a bit here by saying I used to be a big fan back in her ETD days :) This style is so playful, and that big curl in the front along with the smaller one in the back are just a delight. Oh and I also have an eye note tonight, those are the Amacci gift at Shiny Shabby called Zenith Eye Mocha and come in standard and mesh versions. The standard have 3 sizes with a dark version of each, while the mesh have a HUD for all those neat options.

I am running very late, for some reason lately things seem to get really weirdly busy or crop up suddenly the minute I sit down to blog. I apologize for my absence last night, I wasn't feeling great and was stressed trying to get ready for a busy day today, and when I crashed 5 times that morning I just gave up temporarily. Two hectic days in a row, and now here I am :) I got to see my best friend earlier which meant the world to me, it had been since September since we got together and I hate going that long without her hugs and wonderful company. Meanwhile I hope all of you have had plenty of reasons to smile today, and magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Enchantment SL Last Unicorn Again

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am sharing a final post from Enchantment SL's hunt The Last Unicorn, where you grab a free HUD and search each store it TPs you to for a lovely open book with flowers and the word Enchantment across the pages in gold. For the past two nights I've given you some glimpses of the terrific prizes, and I've got one more post before moving on to other goodies :) 

Accessories were plentiful in this hunt as you can tell, and I am really enjoying this Gold Unicorn Headband from Tabou. I think I need a much smaller version in RL ;) Otherwise since I'm shorter than most of the people around me, it would be rather dangerous for them. This headband has a built in resize script, so you can fit any head or hairstyle. I left it a bit large on myself so you could see the band part better. My earrings are our prize from Bliensen + MaiTai, a gorgeous treat with tiny flowers adorning each earring. 

For more amazing earrings, head to Striped Mocha and you can find their book containing these spiral earrings. These silvery twists are subtle, and could almost be mistaken for those long seashells you see occasionally. I really do love these!

How about another exquisite pair of earrings? :) These are our gift from Wicca's Wardrobe and are called Papillon Earrings. That is French for butterfly, and it's easy to see why. These translucent treasures remind me of stained glass and their color really brings out my eyes, which are my next image's subject...

Our prize from Cole's Corner are their Lady Amalthea Eyes in anime eyes (top) and small eyes (bottom) in mesh versions along with standard. Also it was quite difficult to capture with still photography, but there are particle attachments also included "eye glitter" that if you look at the bottom left (my right eye) lower lid, you can almost make out very tiny purple twinkles on my lash line. Photos can't do it justice, you will have to see for yourself :) It was quite fun being violet eyed for the day, I must admit.

No nail note tonight, but a clothing note...I am sporting the dress I blogged two days ago from this same hunt, courtesy of Plastik and their fully loaded prize pack :) I know you can mainly just see the straps, but it was still worth mentioning. All these generous gifts are well worth mentioning :)

It's been a long weird day, filled with lack of sleep and thwarted plans, but I am here and making the best of my night. I hope you're all having a peaceful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

More Treats from Enchantment SL Last Unicorn

Hiya everyone! I have some more fun prizes for you from Enchantment SL and their Last Unicorn Hunt. As this is part 2 of my coverage, I'll summarize yesterday's explanation by saying to go >here< to get the HUD and let it TP you to each store in any order you choose, and find those beautiful open books with flowers and the word Enchantment on them. Have fun, as I clearly have!

Sexy but innocent came to mind when I first tried on this lingerie, courtesy of Glitzz, called Fleur in White. Find their book and you'll receive this in lovely system layers, along with appliers for Banned, Omega, Lolas, Brazilia, Brazilia Doll, Belleza, e-BODY, Maitreya, Perfect Body, Slink Physique, TMP and WowMeh. So yeah, just a few ;) In the interest of full disclosure, I am wearing a pair of nude pasties (from my inventory and probably 8 years old LOL) because there was considerable nipple showing through the lace half of the bra cup and I wanted to prevent actual full disclosure, hehe. I'm sure you noticed that I accessorized this look with some jewelry and a hair bow, well let's start with those lovely bracelets...those are the prize from NAMINOKE, their *N*Moon Bracelets. The gift includes both left and right, so beautifully detailed with the pearls and gemstones. My bow is our prize from Viva Kids! and is simply called Unicorn Bow, with a resize script built in and some lovely gold leaves plus those jazzy gemstones in each flower. 

Chocolate Atelier is offering this stunning hat (or is that considered a fascinator?) called Jojo *night*. It is provided with and without a veil attached, so you can choose the look that best suits your mood and outfit. I'm all about details so those pearls scattered about like little stars caught my eye for sure.

Not all horns found in this hunt are for unicorns, as you can see in our prize from Satyr's Moon. Their Enchanted Horns are so detailed, with the delicate chains hanging from each tip and they include a HUD to allow you to change the brightness, glow, light, position, shine and more. Just find their book and you can claim your copy.

My last look of the night is from Snowpaws, their Unicorn Horn which you will find includes a version with filigree and without filigree. Both have that dainty bow with trailing ribbons near one eye, and I think the one without the filigree could be adjusted upwards to lift that ribbon. There are no wrong answers :)

No nail note of the night (Slink HUD included with hands/feet) but you may be wondering about the hair I am sporting tonight. It is a previous group gift from Little Bones, still available but the group has a $100L fee to join. I've been a member for a very long time and have greatly enjoyed their gifts. This particular hair is called Crimson, and has a Resort HUD with it, as you can see they are wonderful fantasy colors in fun combinations. I really wanted a playful look to suit the mythical unicorn theme :) This style worked well with the bows I wanted to share, too.

Well I hope you're all having a joy-filled day/evening, and magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

The Last Unicorn Goodies

Hiya everyone! Enchantment SL has a delightful hunt themed for The Last Unicorn, and I had to be very careful how I phrased the title of this post because I almost made it sound sinister...like I was hunting down the last unicorn! Actually we're searching for a beautiful open book trimmed with flowers and the word Enchantment across the open pages in gold, but first you will want to go >here< and grab a HUD and be sure to give it permission to TP you as that's how you'll get to each destination. Click each button (the store logos are in each but too small to recognize in some cases) and the HUD will tp you there and give you the hint in local chat. Easy peasy :) They aren't numbered, you can go in any order you wish, and the white ring around each button will turn green after you've clicked its prize so you'll know where you have and haven't been. Ready for a peek at some goodies?

First we have a generous gift from Plastik, as their prize contains a dress, some jewelry, and several unicorn horns! The dress is their Kaciala Gown in Candy which comes in standard sizes plus a fitted version, and I wore the Candy variety of the Amalthea Horn with it, but in the inset I am showing the Cloud, Pop, and Candy horns. There are also 2 varieties included but not shown, the Stark (solid white) and Noir (solid black) so you've got 5 lovely horns to choose from. The jewelry is the Krysis Earrings in Sunrise, and the Krysis Cord Liara short in Sunrise but there are also long and medium versions included. These can all be worn with so many types of outfits, and you know I love versatility.

If you need an adorable, mystical friend to carry around and snuggle (and who doesn't?) then I suggest you head over to Doe and find that book. Your prize will be this precious Narwhal with a built in hold pose, just look at that sweet face! I could get lost in those eyes, and those freckles are the sweetest touch.

{aii} has a beautiful set of unicorn horns as their prize for this hunt, and I'm pleased to show them both to all of you. They are named Ember, and you can just see the tiny particles floating around them. The colors made me think of A Song of Ice and Fire, wrong fandom Dawn! But there is a beauty in that duality, I am fond of them both.

My last look for the evening made me chuckle, meet JoJo the Voodoo Doll :) She does have a built in hold pose that includes both arms, so she's getting a nice strong snuggle from me here. If you'd like one for your very own, please head to LuLu and find the enchanted book. Don't worry, the pins don't move so she probably won't be dangerous ;)

No nail note of the night (default Slink HUD once again, yay!) and I am already plotting and planning for the next post, what hair will best suit the goodies I'd like to share. I think I need something without bangs again but with much less volume up top, so I have been mentally sifting through my favorite styles to try to recall which might fit the bill. I really do tend towards bangs in SL as in RL, so this will be quite the challenge.

I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Free Dove Hunt - G Sloane

Hiya everyone! As you may know from some of my previous posts, Free Dove is a wonderful resource for free gifts to help old and new residents alike, and they host monthly hunts with 2 or 3 of their participating designers. One of this month's hunts is by G. Sloane, and you'll be looking for 10 tiny boxes, red with a white side with the G Sloane name on it. Tonight I am sharing a sampling of those 10 prizes inside.

First we have a great pairing for the approaching spring, prize #1 is the Bronze Tank Top which has that cute tail in the back. The GSC White Skinny Jeans are prize #5, and I really enjoy the mid rise waist and the slight crinkle at the hems. Because of the alpha not playing nicely with one of my hips, I went with the size medium instead of my usual small and I really like the way it lends a baggy look.

Next we have prize #2 which is their Valar Morghulis Halter Dress. For those who aren't familiar with the world of Game of Thrones, that is High Valyrian for "all men must die" and is used as a greeting in some parts of their world. The traditional response (valar dohaeris) means "all men must serve" so it's not entirely a morbid thing. This concludes the nerd lesson for the night ;) The frightening part is that the only thing I had to look up was to verify the spelling of dohaeris. So this stunning dress has a terrific deep neckline, subtle pattern and alluring styling.

Another great look for warmer weather is prize #3, their Kiss Kiss Top V.1 which I've paired with those cute white skinny jeans from the first photo. The top has a solid layer with zebra-like stripes in glittery red, and there's a sheer layer atop that with bright red kisses on it. Like all of tonight's prizes, this comes in standard mesh sizes.

It seems like I'm not the only one in the mood for various shades of pink lately :) This is our prize #8, the GSC Candy Wrapper Beach Tunic. The colors and style are so fun, and it really does have a summery beach feel to it.

One last look for the night, another delightful palette of pinks can be found with prize #9 GSC Pretty in Pink Shift Dress. The texture works out in a lovely way to have that bold V at the waistline to really accentuate our curves, doesn't it?

Nail note of the night: I decided to go with a free gift available at Free Dove, not from the hunt but a regularly available freebie from Pink Cherry that I believe I've blogged here before. It's their PC Finger & Toenails HUD - Metallic for Slink, and has 8 different colors with a wide black stripe across each nail. Very pretty and great color choices!

I've been a bit distracted tonight trying to make plans with my best friend for the weekend, so I think that's a very valid reason for running late :) I haven't seen her in a few months and I'm really excited!! I hope you're having a beautiful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to all of you :)

Purple Moon Part 2

Hiya everyone! I am back with the rest of the prizes from the Purple Moon Cherries on Top Hunt V, and it's just filled with terrific free gifts, no group is needed. Just peruse their lovely Winter Garden and Greenhouse areas, and find the tasty looking drinks garnished with cherries.


Our first look tonight features two of the prizes, along with the hunt item itself :) The top is the Covet Top in Pink, prize #07, and I just had to show you the rear view because of those amazing straps draped down the back. Initially I wanted to pair it with either the skirt or pants from yesterday's post, but they are both very high waisted and that didn't play nicely with the back details of this shirt, so instead you can see it with prize #08. That would be the Twi'lek Leggings in steel, and these are rich in detail as well with the chevron-like panels of what reminds me of snakeskin, all with that gorgeous shimmer that suits the color so well. As for the inset and what I'm holding on the left, that is the hunt object you're searching for :) When you click them, they give you an object to wear to unpack the prize, and this happens to be the object you're given...a delicious looking replica with a built in holding pose. 


More beauty in blue, this is prize #09 better known as their Leia Dress in Blue. The colors are stunning, and I so enjoy the sexy strappy back. As all the prizes are tonight, this is provided in standard mesh sizes.


Our final glimpse of the night is this beautiful Thelma Dress in Pink Floral, prize #10 in the hunt. That elegant draped neckline is just stunning, and I'm quite fond of the delicate bow and belt which is attached and looks like a deep bronze with that metallic sheen. This style is very slender, yet still highlights our curves.

No nail note tonight, went with the Slink default HUD included with all hands/feet. When I first got my Slink hands and feet, I was so excited by the HUDs out there that I pretty much forgot that the creator had provided some simple color choices for us that are very handy (no pun intended!).

What a day...my body isn't very happy with me so I kinda hibernated, hehe, which can be really fun but unexpected when you have insomnia for as many years as I have. I guess it's a necessity, just like naps for the sleep-deprived. It's been a good but emotional weekend and I'm hoping you've all had a lovely one too :) Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Free Drinks at Purple Moon

Hiya everyone! Purple Moon is holding their Cherry on Top Hunt V right now, and instead of the previous years' pairs of cherries to search for in the store, we're looking for a delicious cherry drink (well actually 10 of them) in their Winter Garden and Greenhouse areas. You just click each one you find to receive a wearable object that unpacks a gift for you. So the drinks are free, and their contents are too, no group needed. There are so many great prizes, I am spreading it over 2 nights/posts instead of one massive one :)

First we have prize #01 which is the charming Love Top in Cream, and it includes standard sizes plus a fitted version. I've paired it here with prize #06, the Love Skirt in Pink. This also comes in standard and a fitted size, with a great high waist and classic floral pattern.

Another pairing of two gifts, this jacket is prize #02 the Kim Jacket in Blue which comes in standard sizes. That particular shade of blue is gorgeous, and the style is sharp. Our skirt is prize #03, the Jess Skirt in light blue, which is included in standard sizes plus a fitted version. While they look beautiful together, they would look stunning paired with your favorite pieces from your wardrobe as well, definitely versatile.

Our top from the first photo is back, because the cropped style enabled me to better show you the wonderful details of prize #04, Heather Trousers in Pink. These high waisted, flared pants have a fun chain belt attached, and look at that flattering shape! The rear view shows some impressive curves and this is just the size small. Speaking of sizes, this comes in the usual standard ones :) That soft pink color is just dreamy, and can match a wide variety of tops.

The last glimpse for the night is an alluring top (shown with the Heather pants from the prior photo), prize #05 Anika Blouse in Pink. As you can see above, this lovely shirt comes in two versions, the translucid on the left and the solid on the right. Each version is included in standard sizes, and there is an ideal bonus of the cream colored bandeau top just visible on the left. That is included in a system layer and with an Omega applier, and provides just the right touch of modesty for the sheer version. There is an alpha layer for the solid version as well.

No nail note tonight as I went with the Slink default HUD again. It was a rather emotional day, as one of the vendors at the artisan market I visit each week has to close up her business and return across the pond, back to her native England for family reasons. I've enjoyed chatting with her and her husband each week, as well as indulging some truly delicious baked goods such as scones, shortbread, and the best quiches I've ever had. Overall I just want her family to be well, and am grateful for technology that will let us keep in touch across the miles. Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Loving Kind Friday Freebies

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am finishing up my coverage of The Loving Kind Hunt, a free gridwide hunt with lots of terrific prizes waiting for you hidden in red hearts. While many of the prizes are red, most aren't specifically for Valentine's Day, and as far as I'm concerned being loving and kind is always in season :)

First we have a stylish one piece with the look of two, the Alicia Maxi from Vindiktive. They are #26 in the hunt path, and this prize is provided in standard fitmesh sizes along with Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. Just look at that rich texture, it's begging to be touched.

For plenty of versatility, be sure to find the heart #21 at Sparrow by Design and you can claim this Sweet Love Gown & Mini for your very own. The mesh part is shown alone on the right, and that is included in standard sizes, while on the left you can see it with the optional additions of system layer glitch pants, a flexi skirt, and left & right sidepanels which are also flexi. Details that really caught my eye about this prize are the flowers that are a part of the mesh dress, and the beautiful ombre.

I did mention red, well this dress is definitely in that fire engine color family :) Prize #29 from MadCat Creations is this gorgeous Valentine dress, with that lattice style back I'm so fond of, and with great touches of gems as part of the texture. It must be materials enabled, as there is a lovely sheen that looks to be reflecting the light from the lamp that's to the right (my left, camera right) outside the view of the camera. Find that heart and you'll get this stunner in standard sizes.

The eyes I've been wearing for all the pictures related to this hunt are finally getting their closeup :) These are none other than the beauties from InkHeart, their Glass Eyes in Passion (top) and Deep Passion (bottom) which are included in both system and mesh versions, 3 sizes each. I'm wearing the size M mesh versions for each here. I really appreciate the almost mahogany coloring of the Deep Passion, since my avi generally isn't a vampire so doesn't need a blood red shade. If you do, they do have them there though :) They really do have an impressive selection of eyes there, plus I've noticed really reasonable prices.

No nail note of the night (Slink default HUD), and as I'm running late (I over-napped after dinner with my parents ran way longer than I expected) I will just wrap this up with a wish for a beautiful weekend to all, and plenty of magical magpie hugs for each of you!!

Hugs and Kisses

Hiya everyone! I am briefly interrupting my Loving Kind hunt coverage for another hunt that is ending in just a few days, a very different kind of hunt called the XOXO Hunt. Instead of searching for a hunt object, this time you will go >here< to get a HUD and then go to each store (links via HUD) and approach their hunt easel (shown on their site) and type XOXO in local chat. So you're kissing a sign, and the sign gets to critique your performance ;) If the sign thinks you're a good kisser, it'll give you a gift...if not, you have to practice kissing for 24 hours and come back to try again. If you've seen people running around typing "xoxo" randomly in chat and then TPing away, this is most likely the reason. Would you like to see a few of the many wonderful prizes?

First up, we have a stunning dress from Junbug named Miss Evelyn, with some delightful details. The corset styling and lacing in the back blew me away, plus that cute ribbon tie is a fun touch. There are standard sizes included, I'm wearing the Small, and felt the need to mention that there is also a Small Curvy size included which is a bonus surprise since this traditional small is rather curvy and busty to me :)

I enjoyed this next dress and felt it was a lovely backdrop for an accessory from the hunt. The dress is the Milena Dress by Bodhi, provided in a whole host of sizes including Belleza FREYA, Belleza ISIS, Belleza VENUS, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP. As for the necklace, well the gift from OXIDE is not just one necklace but a trio, which include a collar and two necklaces called Valentia. I am wearing the Short version here, the long is the same basic style with the same beautiful details but deeper down the neckline.

You can see the collar from the OXIDE necklaces gift here on the left, and so much more! The bodysuit I am wearing is our prize from Supernatural, which includes system layers plus appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP. I love the lace at the top, and the 2 delicate bows at the leg openings. On the right, you'll notice I removed the collar and am showing an adorable cropped sweater, well that is our gift from Sorbet, their Coeur Cotele in Fraise. I love the cutout heart, and I admit this was a random case of needing to show off a top without having a pair of pants on hand from the hunt ;) But honestly I like the contrast of how the collar picks up the various lighter pink shades, while the red sweater highlights the deeper reds of the flowers. 

Nails make me happy, so this picture clearly brings me plenty of joy :) On the top we have an adorable set of nails from Dark Passions, their Koffin Nails division, a fatpack called Tart Heart with 14 fun designs to choose from: 6 conversation hearts on your choice of pink or purple with tiny dots, or the pink or purple with the dots but no heart. Each design is also in either matte or gloss. The fatpack includes HUDs for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink nails and Slink toes. On the bottom of my photo, you can see the prize from Bella Elephante (not to be confused with their Elephante Poses who have a separate gift in this hunt). This is their Gem of my Heart nails, 10 colors with a faceted look with a heart in the center of each nail. You will receive Maitreya and Slink HUDs in this terrific prize.

Well today was a thrill a minute, LOL, with a dentist appointment and way too many errands before and after. At least I had a good nap after :) Honestly it wasn't a terrible day, just busy and tiring. I hope you've all had a great day/evening, and magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
