Egg Hunt Prizes from MH Unique

Hiya everyone! When I blogged some group gifts from MH Unique, I mentioned that with your free group tag you can click the Easter eggs scattered around the store to claim prizes from each. There are 14 total, and I don't know how long the eggs will be there but I am glad to have an opportunity to show you some of those prizes. If you are a mesh body wearer then good news, all of the prizes have appliers and some are only appliers so I couldn't show you those. I chose a random selection of the tops and lingerie which the prizes consist of, enjoy!

For my first look, we start with the prize from egg #7, which holds their Lolita top in 4 colors in system layers and appliers for Maitreya, Slink, TMP, Belleza, and Omega. Shown are cherry and turquoise, and the other shades are blue and purple so it is a nice variety. As for the pants, I made use of an MH Unique group gift, MH-Pants Lace in system layers plus Belleza and Omega appliers in black (shown), purple, red, and turquoise. 

Those pants also came in handy for me to show you this striking Kary leather lace top in a system layer plus appliers for Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, TMP, and Slink. There are so many eye catching details to the texturing, like that buckle and the lace cups.

Find the egg #4 and you will receive their Snake Lingerie in system layers and appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega and Slink. I am wearing the green and purple sets above, but this generous set also includes beige and blue versions. Those pretty bows both front and back are a fantastic touch.

Another sexy lingerie ensemble can be found in egg #2, Tenerife in system layers plus appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, and Slink. There are several versions included, gold and flower both shown, purple, red, red light, sunrise, and turquoise too. 

You may have noticed my eyes looking a bit different tonight, that is thanks to Inkheart and their new SLF&O group gift. They are offering their Amal Eyes as an exclusive gift, and I am wearing blue on my left eye (photo right) and forest in my right, size L mesh versions. Those colors and chaos and wood are each included in system or mesh in 4 sizes each, a very thorough and thoughtful gift. 

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

Monday Surfing Into Summer and More

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a couple more dollarbie hunt prizes from the Surf Into Summer Hunt to show you, and we round things off with SLF&O group gifts and a cute marketplace find. It's a nice mixture, and I really enjoyed the outfits I found.

This first look from JLZ Fashion is their Daisy Beach, their $1L prize from Surf Into Summer. It starts with the dazzling dress in several sizes including standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, but no alphas so I bumped up a size from my usual. The beach bag with coordinated print is also provided, along with the fun beach hat and even the cool sunglasses. I definitely look ready for a resort somewhere warm.

Waffles' Babygirl and Gacha has a very playful outfit for their Surf Into Summer prize, and it is quite a generous one! Blue Hawaii Mesh Outfit includes the ruffled dress in standard sizes, the hair bow, and those cute sandals in Slink flat and unrigged versions that can be adjusted if need be. I'm loving the bright colors and tropical texture.

To claim this wonderful gift, pop on your free SLF&O group tag, and head to Pink Pearl Designs. Their gift for that group is their Lara in Purple, with a remarkable amount of components to mix and match. The tops are system layer and appliers for Omega/Slink/Lola and TMP, and come in black/purple, purple/white, and lilac/white. The mesh skirts are standard sizes in the same three color combos, and the shoes are Slink high in either black and purple or lilac and white. The lilac clutch purse activates the Maitreya auto-hide feature. Whew, that is a fully loaded prize for sure.

Finally I have another SLF&O group gift, courtesy of Alien Gizmo's, their Prue Capris which includes many mesh sizes such as standard, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. It even has a HUD for 3 texture options, I stuck with the camo as a nod to Memorial Day but the others are a solid grey and a solid dark pink. I had a glitchy morning and the HUD didn't work for me, but since I'd already crashed twice I am blaming my computer or connection. As for the top, that is a Marketplace freebie, the Syfe "Gift 4 Peace" mini tank in standard sizes. I'm not trying to be ironic, being supportive of military personnel both past and present does not mean I support war and I wish this world were a whole lot more peaceful. I was actually looking for a plain white tank top when I found this on the marketplace instead :)

My day was mostly good, could have used more sleep (as usual?) but I enjoyed time with my family and some tasty food. I spotted a second white eyelash, how does that even happen? LOL! I'd had one for a while, but now another has sprouted and I was unpleasantly surprised. I think I need a color HUD for my real life eyelashes :P  Have a terrific day/evening, magical magpie hugs to all of you!!

Treasure Hunting at Wild Orchid

Hiya everyone! This morning I found out about a treasure hunt at Wild Orchid for their anniversary, and had to hurry since it isn't clear when the hunt ends but the notecard was about their weekend celebration (28th - 31st) so it may be ending very soon. Just head there and pick up a HUD in the landing area courtyard, then explore their huge store to find 8 big treasure chests. When you find them all, the HUD automatically will issue you a Grand Prize pack, in addition to the 8 prizes you claim for each time you click a chest. Tonight I have some sneak peeks for you, enjoy!


My first look is a stunning mesh jumpsuit called Good Times in Mozart Blue. It has a high neckline in the front, deep arm openings, and a beautifully framed plunging back. Standard sizes are included, along with a lovely matching belt that has a built in resize script.


Next we have this elegant Poison Mesh dress in Coral Blush, a sweet satiny gown in standard mesh sizes with flexi chest feathers as an optional attachment. Also included but not shown, black gloves in system layer only. Just look at that hint of cleavage from behind, you will definitely look amazing both coming and going in this prize.


Our treasure chest prizes also include some jewelry, makes sense to me :) This is the Wild Orchid Metro Jewelry Set, consisting of the necklace and earrings with a gem changer HUD for 12 color options. With that much variety, this should look great with most of your favorite outfits.


You may be wondering about the grand prize for finding all 8 treasure chests, well it contains several gifts including this striking pants suit called My Charm Black Tube Top Snake Skin. The top is a tube top and bolero jacket combined and come in standard sizes, while the pants have 4 numbered sizes to choose from. Even the glowing earrings and bracelets seen here are included, so this is a convenient outfit choice.


One final look at two more grand prize rewards, here you can see the Wild Orchid Spring Essentials Blouse in Sand, paired with the Spring Essentials Pants in Navy. Each include standard mesh sizes, and will look lovely together or paired with your favorite separates. Versatility is always a plus, and I think this deep neckline would do well with a smart necklace to dress up or add color.

It is a fairly peaceful evening here, as I listen to the rain on the windows, and I am looking forward to a faux barbecue tomorrow, LOL, since there are scattered thunderstorms expected we are just having rotisserie chicken and potato salad and maybe some hot dogs & burgers on a Foreman (indoor) grill. I hope the weekend is treating you all well, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Surf Into Summer and More

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a medley of dollarbies and freebies to show you, starting with hunt prizes from the Surf Into Summer Hunt which is a dollarbie gridwide in which you'll be searching for a small surfboard. While hunting I picked up an SLF&O group gift at one of the hunt locations, then visited another store with a free group join and lots of previous group gifts available. It was a productive way to spend some relaxing SL time for sure.


The first hunt prize I'd like to show you is this beautiful Daisy Dress from Easterling, where just a single linden dollar will get you a host of sizes including standard, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, and Venus (no alpha layer as they cater to mesh bodies) along with the remarkable HUD that features color changes for everything ;) There are 19 choices for the dress itself including 12 labeled semi-transparent, and a few from the top row do show nipples which is partly why I turned for a side view on the right. The pretty belt is completely customizable as well, 10 choices for the belt and 11 for the flowers, even 8 for the dots in the center of the flower. Have fun exploring all the possibilities, I sure did!


We can't surf into summer without fresh new beachwear, and this flirty outfit from Darling Haute Couture definitely fits the bill. Their prize is called *DHC* Heather, and includes the bikini top and lovely patterned skirt each in standard mesh sizes. As usual I am loving all the little details, like the metal links holding together both top and skirt.


Don't teleport away from Darling Haute Couture just yet, because the front desk area has an SLF&O group gift that will make for a terrific summer as well. This is *DHC* Pamila and comes in standard mesh sizes for each the top and bottom, and I love the fact that whether worn on soft white sands or crystal blue waves, or even the clear peaceful waters of your favorite pool, the bright rainbow shades on here will still catch your eye as well as everyone else's. 


I stumbled upon a store called HANAU that I recall under their previous name of A.R.C. & F.N. and am excited to see their rebranding. Their group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts in addition to the current one available. This icy dress called Whiteout is one of the treasures from the previous gift box, and includes standard sizes and a Lolas applier along with a great bonus of a Slink nail applier so your tips and toes can match perfectly. You can see from the inset, I was in a stiletto nail mood today for some random reason, but I think it gives them an icicle feel so I am glad I went with it.

I have a hair note tonight, since I was in a blonde mood but still really want this Truth Hair gacha style in my usual gingers. The round of Epiphany they were from has ended, but I visited Truth's mainstore and the gacha machine is there waiting for us. I tried once really quickly and still no luck, LOL, but it is good to know where these fun braided styles can be found now that the event is behind us. The one machine has this and two other styles, and for $50L a pull it's addictively fun!

I am so ready for a peaceful day at home tomorrow...I am feeling a bit sentimental about the Memorial Day holiday since I've had many family members and friends in the military and respect their sacrifices. I try not to be political on here, I'm not highly political in general, just offering support for those who have lost a loved one. I'm the daughter of hippies but the granddaughter of a WWII veteran, it's an odd mix. Whatever you are doing this weekend, have a great time and be safe. Magical magpie hugs to all!!

Tres Chic Anniversary Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight we get to help the Tres Chic event celebrate their first anniversary by visiting and enjoying a lovely shopping venue, plus there are many gifts to be found. Most are free, a few are $1L, and just a couple needed a free group tag (but none of the ones I am showing tonight). It is always a treat to see so many new fashions from various designers in one place, and there sure are a lot of anniversaries the past month or two :) 

My first look is actually three gifts in one. The wrap dress is from BlackRose and is provided in several sizes, including standard, fitted, Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass. I thought the color of the belt was a fun match for the gift from LIZIAAH, their mesh silver bracelet. You can see a closer look in the inset of the intricate details, really impressive! Finally I couldn't resist the Petite Mort gift of Lennon round specs to shade my eyes. This isn't their only gift for us, so be sure to keep an eye out ;)

Sometimes while unpacking things, I get a case of the squees because something is just that cute, or suits my mood perfectly at that moment, and this whole outfit made me squee! The Penelopa overalls and top are our gift from EVANI, and both the overalls in beige and the top in strawberry are provided in standard sizes plus Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique for a wide range of bodies. I had the pleasure of accessorizing this look with both items found in the gift from [sYs], the Jamie Bag shaped like an adorable bear and the POP bracelet for the same hand. I really enjoyed this playful look, as you can tell.

Hilly Haalan has a delightful dollarbie gift for us, that one tiny linden will get you the very pretty Nikki Cut Out Top PLAINS shown here in standard sizing, plus the earrings and necklace you see with it. I really appreciate that color, and the style is just right for the summer. I am sporting a pair of shorts from the marketplace to cover my buns, lol, and because I needed them to show the next gift effectively.

If you are looking for a new tattoo, I would suggest this lovely free gift from Nanika called Night cat. The pretty kitty is silhouetted on a crescent moon with flowers, and those blossoms trail their way around the thigh to drape all the way down the back of the leg. The system layer is shown, but the gift also includes Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink appliers. My sexy shoes are also a Tres Chic gift, courtesy of -KC- and called Mewsin Plateau Mid Feet. This includes Belleza, Maitreya, Mesh Project, and Slink versions, all for the Mid heights which I am quite fond of. 

Well I had a busy day that ended much better than it started, since dental visits are never fun but when they run out of nitrous while you're comfortably drifting away...not a pleasant eye-opener. I was able to get a nap in before heading to my parents' for a nice dinner though, and tomorrow is farmers market day :) I hope you all have some enjoyable plans for the weekend, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Thursday This and That

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a variety of freebies and dollarbies to share, including a couple of hunt prizes from the What? What? Do What You Want Hunt which is a humorously named dollarbie gridwide hunt organized by Perfect Seduction. There are some preview photos on their site, along with the locations and hints. I'm also showing a couple of group gifts tonight, and my inner shopaholic hair addict came out to play ;)

This first outfit is the wonderful hunt prize from Lady Dragon's Design, their (WW) Jumper Top and Jeans Outfit. For just a single linden when you find the hidden "?", you can claim this top, jeans, and even the skull heels for Slink high...just look at the details...those chains! Our top and jeans are each provided in many sizes including 5 classic mesh, 5 fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink Physique, and Slink Hourglass.

Maybe it's getting warmer and warmer in your corner of the world (as it is here) and you were thinking about finding a more summery look, well I can certainly point you in the right direction: Sweet Intoxication. Their hidden question mark contains their Aggie Outfit in Yellow, a fluttery top and matching shorts in a sunshiny hue with a great diamond pattern. The shorts and top are each included in standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink sizes, so you can get a fantastic fit.

As an Entice group member, I headed over to see what their most recent group gift is, and as usual I was not disappointed in the least. This is the Time For Mercy Dress which includes standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink sizes, plus as you may have guessed, a HUD for 3 color choices. I really couldn't pick a favorite, as they are each colors I wear in RL and SL quite a bit, but no need to choose when the HUD lets you change as often as you wish. By the way, the Entice group is free to join and allows access to an extra Midnight Mania board in addition to the generous gifts.

For my last look, I headed to a new-to-me store called *T.C* and returned with this adorable shirt to share. Pandie Gift is a group gift but is set for sale for $0L to anyone, and contains standard mesh sizes with a very happy panda enjoying a tasty meal with his picture on the bowl. There are other gifts to be found right beneath the lucky boards, and I must mention that those boards are group only and the group is free to join at the moment. There is a notice dated yesterday that it will have a fee soon, not sure when or how much so I'm going to recommend if you're interested do NOT hesitate.

Hair note of the night: you know by now that I love Truth Hair, and events usually bring discounted prices which is always a plus...so Uber has just opened, and I generally wait several days to let the crowds thin out before I even attempt to visit any event. This time, I found out about a neighboring sim from which you can cam into Uber and do your shopping, so tonight I'm already enjoying one of the 2 Truth offerings for this round :) This is Elira in gingers, which includes versions with and without a hat and HUDs for both the hair colors and the hat colors. You can find the shopping guide here, and the neighboring sim here. Enjoy!!

Today was quite a day, one of the many joys of being a woman is that I have a new addition to my healthcare routine, mammograms...this was my second so far, two years ago I had my baseline. There is a family history of breast cancer that I need to be aware of, so even though this isn't October I am going to go ahead and remind all my readers who have breasts to love your tata's and get them checked :) Tomorrow I have a dental visit, so I think the new hair was retail therapy in advance. 

Hope you're all having a joyful day, magical magpie hugs to each and every one of you!!

More Mothers Day Hunt Treats

Hiya everyone! I am pleased to share a few more prizes from the Mothers Day Hunt, so this is a part two from last night. I enjoyed seeing the various designers' tributes to SL moms, and I hope you get a chance to pick up your favorites as well.

First we have our free hunt gift from Sin Original, which includes their Beth Yoga Pants and Beth Yoga Top, each in standard mesh sizes along with Slink Physique and Slink Hourglass versions. What mom doesn't deserve a great outfit in which to enjoy soothing yoga or simply exploring the grid? Truthfully we all deserve it :) I need those pants in RL, they look extra comfy and so soft.

Next we have something fun to show how it feels to be the kind of mom who does it all while looking amazing :) This shirt is our prize from SEVYN EAST, their Super Mom Tankie Tee, provided in standard sizes. It also includes a special bonus, nail HUDs for Slink and Omega which each feature 3 different color ombres, with or without the logo from the shirt. 

For the moms to be, VN Creations is offering this beautiful VN43 Mommy Mesh Dress in standard sizes, scattered with butterflies and with a separate bow included for you to decide if you'd like to wear with or without. It was attached to my hand by default so I reattached to my spine and adjusted, no big deal. I was amused at how cute my avi looked with a big baby bump, but that isn't something I see in my SL future (so Xan, relax and breathe!! LOL) at least right now. I have included a closer view of my charming necklace, which is our prize from Grumble, their GG Mom Pendant-Silver/Pink. The heart replacing the "O" adds the perfect sentiment.

Now I get to wrap up tonight's coverage with a closer look at the prize from our hunt organizer, Nail It Good! This is their Mothers Day 2016 HUD with 6 pretty floral designs, and the HUD is compatible with Slink, Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya for a great range of mesh hands. As I am very fond of florals, this gift makes me quite happy.

It has been a weird day here to say the least, including earlier when I was heating some roasted potatoes in the microwave and they somehow sparked into a tiny flame. That didn't smell appetizing, hehe, and it was only power level 5 (50%) and it happened after just 12 seconds so it's not like I nuked the heck out of them. I've seen corn kernels do that, but not potatoes. Left a scorch mark on the plate >.<  Anyway, hehe, I hope things are going well for each of you, and I'm sending magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Mothers Day Hunt Prizes

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some hunt prizes to share with you, from a small gridwide Mothers Day Hunt that I didn't hear about until well into the timeframe. Good thing there are only 20 stops counting #00 the start location of Nail It Good who organized it :) You have until June 1st so about a week to find a pretty pink rose at each location. The landmarks are on their blog only, not in the prizes (where I prefer them for simplicity to be honest, but I get that it's a hassle if a store moves and the prior store didn't get notified right away, etc.) so their site is a valuable reference. And now for some glimpses of the prizes you can find...


My first look of the night is this very pretty Khari's MD Halter Dress. It comes in standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, and the sweet floral pattern is a summery eye-catcher. The slit in the skirt, front and center, provides a lot of movement.


Next we have a humorous and comfy looking outfit from Lady Dragon's Designs, consisting of a strappy top that says "Momma Said Knock You Out!" and sweats that say MOM down the left leg. Each are included in standard mesh sizes, and I am greatly enjoying the style of each piece along with the awesome colors.


Another delightfully casual outfit can be found in the rose at Waffles' Babygirl Gacha Finds, their *WM* Mother's Heart Top & Shorts. The top is a system layer with Maitreya and Omega appliers, while the shorts are mesh in standard sizes. Even my socks are included, system layer and Maitreya/Omega appliers as well. The saying on the shirt is so sweet, isn't it? It's Always Spring In A Mother's Heart!


We haven't forgotten that moms can be elegant and sexy as well, so take a gander at this gorgeous gown from Ecstasy. This is their Mothers Low Back Dress, and is provided in a myriad of sizes including 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. I accessorized with the beautiful ~Mesh Glam~ For Mom bracelet, which you can see even better in the closeup. Such a glamorous style!


My final look of the night is a closer view of the prize from Rad Designs. These are their Glitter Heart Flower nails, on a HUD for Slink, Omega, and Maitreya with 6 colors as shown above. So pretty, and the unique take on French tips brings even more variety.

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

More Sn@tch Fishing Treasures

Hiya everyone! Tonight is a part 2 from last night's blog, more glimpses of what can be found in the grab bags at Sn@tch to be fished up with a 7 Seas rod which can be purchased at Sn@tch or countless other locations and used everywhere you see the 7 Seas logo. So tonight is another selection of peeks into the grab bags you can collect by fishing on a fun dance floor near the lucky boards, terrific setup and really passes the time.

This is a great pairing from two grab bags with similar names, so it makes sense that they are so well matched. The top is from grab bag #19 Sn@tch Shailene Leather Tank in wine, provided in standard mesh sizes and with shapely color blocking. The pants are their Shailene Leather Pants in black, system layers with an Omega applier and optional cuffs not shown, all found in #18. The texture is terrific, and the rivet details on the back are a nice touch.

I left the Shailene leather pants on to show you another top, this time from grab bag #17 called Solange Lace Top in white. Standard mesh sizes are included, and that lace texturing is irresistible.

If you need a beautiful dress to enjoy, open up grab bag #16 where you'll find the Sn@tch Hannah Party Dress in peach, standard mesh sizing included. That delicate brooch is part of the texture, and I'm head over heels for this pinkish shade of peach that is so flattering for a wide range of skin tones. The flared style looks great on every body, too.

One last look for tonight, this is all found in grab bag #14 named Sn@tch Leigh & Andie Outfit. The top is the Annie part, the white ribbed sweater with that enticing low cut back, while our skirt is the Leigh Plaid Mini in pink with its gentle pleats. 

Not much to say about my day, I am mostly just hoping all of you have had a nice one and are enjoying your evening. Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fishing for Sn@tch Grab Bags

Hiya everyone! I have featured 7 Seas fishing prizes from Sn@tch before, but just in case here's a reminder of how it works: you purchase a 7 Seas fishing rod just once ($100L for a casual rod that doesn't use bait, or $350L I think it is for the Pro rod that you can buy bait for to increase your catching chances and rarity) and then every 2 weeks Sn@tch changes their set of prizes to fish for. There are dozens, probably hundreds, of places to fish in SL with your rod, and the custom prizes at various stores can include just about anything. Once you own your rod, you own it forever, and I use the pro rod which I've had for several years but fish unbaited to save $lindens. It has been a great investment for me, fun and relaxing :) The prizes this round at Sn@tch are 20 grab bags, I love when she does that as they contain a great variety of wardrobe builders. Other rounds usually involve several components that can be mixed and matched for a set of outfits.


This lovely dress is in grab bag #1, Sn@tch Mariah Brocade Pouf Dress in taupe. I really love the ornate designs of the flowers, and the buttons are a cute touch. Standard mesh sizes are provided for a great fit.


This adorable shirt and charming skirt are each from separate grab bags, so keep on fishing....grab bag #2 contains Sn@tch Patches Sequin Peasant Top in blue, standard mesh sizes. I love the sheer ruffles on the sleeves and hemline. Sn@tch Delaja Beaded Maxi Skirt can be found in grab bag #5, standard mesh sizes also. I mostly paired them simply for the convenience of a top and a bottom together, but the more I look at the picture the more I'm liking the color combo and the Boho style. Usually I'm scared to mix patterns, to be honest, but I think I am getting braver.


Another fun pairing can be found here, starting with the Sn@tch Lorde Flannel Top in red from grab bag #4. It is provided in standard mesh sizes, and who could resist that little tie at the waist? I matched it with grab bag #12 Sn@tch Go Out Skinny Jeans in Faded which also come in standard mesh sizing. The back is a little low cut, so you will be able to sport some cute bum cleavage ;)


My last look of the night is a fantastic dress from grab bag #7, Sn@tch Dora Boho Dress in Green. The style and the color are both very much me, RL and SL, body skimming but not too tight and with an intriguing texture. 

Nail note of the night: tonight I have been having fun playing with the newest weekly Hello Dave group gift, a wildly patterned variety called In Print featuring 5 bright colors in an assortment of animal prints. There are similar palettes available for Lazy Sunday if you hurry :)

It was a pretty decent day here, and I hope you're all having a good evening. Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
