Gifts for Mesh Body Friends

Hiya everyone! Yesterday I mentioned that the Mesh Body Friends group (which one of the gifts at Xtravagance was for) was new to me, and it got me thinking that I should explore what other designers are offering gifts for this group. The results can be seen in tonight's post, several generous gifts just for wearing your free Mesh Body Friends group tag and visiting a few lovely stores. Sounds like a terrific deal to me!


Kendrasy Creations has multiple gifts for the MBF group, including the Sandy Dress you see on the left and the Back To School dress on the right. Sandy is a cowl neck mini in a deep burgundy, included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. Back To School has a deep neckline and a swash of plaid, in Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Hourglass, and Physique versions. Both of these dresses can easily be dressed up a bit with some jewelry if you wish, or can look simply stunning by just adding your favorite shoes.


For their KC MissGlamour Dress, Kendrasy Creations gives us a gold and a silver version of the same dazzling mini in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes for each. These certainly live up to their name, and either metallic tone will be an ideal choice for your next big night out.


Next I had the pleasure of visiting LsR, where I picked up this Sexy Kate Long Dress group gift for Mesh Body Friends. The elegant style, complete with daringly high slits on each side and an intricate collar connected by jewels, comes in sizes for Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Curvy. The only type of drama welcomed in my online life is this dramatic, beautiful style :)


Hilly Haalan has always been generous with their own group gifts, so it is not surprising that they offer gifts for other groups too. This is their Mesh Body Friends group gift called [hh] Estela Dress, and it deftly combines the sweetness of pink with the sass of leather and lacing. The front and back are each laced like a corset, with just enough skin peeking through. The gift includes sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. A helpful hint, the Gifts building is a small separate room located between the two main store buildings, not far from where you land. 


One last look for the evening, this is our gift from ZAFIA, simply called Top and Jeans Gift. It includes system layers along with appliers for Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Omega, so a wide range of classic and mesh avatar bodies are compatible with this generous gift. You can certainly wear a panties layer beneath if the open zipper in the front is a bit too low for your liking, and I am appreciating the mix of distressed jeans and gingham cami style shirt.

Is it bedtime yet? ;) Today has been a busy, crazy, tiring sort of day, and since tomorrow will be even more so, I will not be able to blog tomorrow evening but will return as quickly as possible with more delightful bargains and freebies to show you. Maybe I will post on Magpie Musings if I gather some coherent thoughts and decide to put them into words, hehe. Meanwhile I hope you are all enjoying your weekends, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

An Xtravagance of Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have several group gifts from a store called Xtravagance, and while you only need to visit one location, they are each for a different inworld group. All these groups are free to join, and I have blogged gifts for two of them before from various stores so they may be familiar to you. The clothing here is very mesh body friendly, which is good news for many of us, and I would describe the general style as fun and flirty. Well, let's take a look at these generous offerings...

First we have the gift for the Xtravagance store group, which is free to join. It is called XT Tess Flowers Dress, and includes both the red and black versions you see here, each in Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The sheer trim on the skirt and the sleeves is a lovely touch, and the floral pattern looks sharp on both colors.

This strapless mini, named XT Sania Dress, is a gift for the Mesh Body Friends group, which is free to join and is new to me. The dress includes sizes for Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, so a wide range of options there. The skirt has a bit of sheerness to it, in which case I usually make sure to wear neutral colored panties beneath.

If you are in need of a sexy bodysuit, I am sure this XT Jassmin Bodysuit will fulfill your wishes. It is the gift for the Fit Mesh Fanatics group, which is free to join, and there are sizes provided for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. I love the delicate white flowers, and the bodice of this is very sheer so I almost censored the photo but decided against it because it would obscure some of the pretty pattern and the potentially inappropriate parts are not clearly visible.

I did, however, decide that this even more see-through beauty needed a bit of editing ;) Those white flowers you see were added by me, not part of the dress itself. This is our gift for the MGSN Group (Maitreya Gifts Sales and News) and is called XT Emily Dress. It comes in Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and I am thinking that for day to day wear, this would look fantastic layered over a bikini or bodysuit.

I had myself another very hectic couple of days, but my dental implant is finally repaired and I am mostly just dealing with family situations that may need more of my attention this weekend. Please forgive if I wind up skipping a day of blogging here and there, I am dealing with a lot but trying my best :) I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Group Gifts from FurtaCor

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have just one location for you to visit, a store called FurtaCor who have several group gifts available. The group is currently free to join (description mentions a fee starting in July...) so if you like what you see, please do not hesitate so you can still get in on the fun without having to pay to join their group. Once your tag is activated, there are several gifts you can claim and I am showing you a handful of those tonight. I also saw that there were gifts for other groups, so be sure to take a good look around!


This is the FurtaCor Charlotte Dress, which comes in standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique versions. It also includes a HUD with various textures for the top and skirt, as you probably guessed from the way I had a hard time narrowing it down to just 3 combinations to share :) Please click the image for a bigger view. There are 25 textures on the left of the HUD for the entire dress, then 25 on the right will recolor the skirt alone if you wish to change it. You can see in the middle I did a single pattern, but on each side I went with a solid and a pattern. Gorgeous!


You know by now how much I appreciate those texture HUDs for their versatility, so of course this Katty Dress made me very happy by including one also. There are 29 textures, both patterned and solid, to choose from, for our dress in sizes for standard Small, standard Large, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. Also provided with this gift are an Omega tattoo applier, and the studded clutch I am holding. Just add your favorite shoes and you're all set for a night on the town, as soon as you manage to choose one of the terrific textures of course.


The lovely FurtaCor Lana Dress also includes a texture HUD for the top and the skirt, 32 selections for each, and there is a pretty bow for the back included as well. I don't think it changes color, so you can always leave it off if the black doesn't suit your choices or mood. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes, all I had to do was alpha out a tiny bit of my Maitreya body and I was good to go. 


Just when I was thinking how nice it would be to have a new casual outfit to go with all the pretty dresses, I tried on this FurtaCor Laura Set and got a good chuckle. The top and jeans each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and yes the shirt does say "Fries Before Guys". The tip toe sneakers are included in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. There is a HUD involved here too, those jeans have 15 possible textures you can pick from. You can make them bold, colorful, subtle, there are even at least 2 tradition denim shades on there if I recall correctly.


More casual, playful fun can be found inside the gift FurtaCor Rebeka Dancer, which includes the top, pants, sneakers, and backpack you see here. The shirt and pants are each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes, the sneakers in Belleza and Maitreya and Slink versions, and the backpack has a hold pose built in as shown on the left. The included HUD offers 15 shirt textures, 15 pants textures, 8 for the sneakers, and 6 for the backpack. The shirt really caught my attention with sayings like Beast Mode and Dance Mode, in addition to Training to be Wonder Woman as I am wearing on the right, and some cute animals. The pants offer solids and prints, which complement the shirt choices really nicely.

In another installment of What A Day, lol, this evening I noticed that one of my dental implants (a molar) is loose and making a clicking sound like it is rattling around in my jaw. Tomorrow I already have an acupuncture appointment in the afternoon, but it seems I will now be spending my morning (or if bad luck sets in, evening) in the dentist chair where I was less than a week ago, to see what on earth happened. I try to maintain a positive attitude, even when stupid things like this crop up, so I am hopeful that they can fix it pretty simply. I'm guessing they will probably x-ray it and then take it out so they can put it back in more securely.The molar behind it is an implant too, which seems to be okay right now. *fingers crossed* Why am I telling you all this? Well it means I will not have time to blog tomorrow, but will hopefully be back to posting the following day. Like many people, I have a deep seated fear of the dentist, so my anxiety is rapidly climbing.

Unrelated side note, I did publish my first blog post from my chatty companion piece to this blog, if anyone was curious what goes on in the Magpie mind sometimes ;) I have a few more thoughts that will eventually be posts there soon. Also there is a funny throwback photo of Xan and me from 2007, that alone is worth a glimpse! I hope you are all having a terrific day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

More Guest List Treats

Hiya everyone! There were too many prizes from the Strawberry Hunt that is part of The Guest List cart sale to squeeze them all into one post, so this is a delightful part two that allows me to tempt you even more into enjoying this event. There are a few days left since it lasts until the 20th, so I encourage you to visit and see what $100L or less exclusive offerings you can pick up in addition to these prizes hiding in little strawberries at most of the carts.
This is our prize from I.M. Collection called Aine Dress in Purple, and it is included in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The style and texture are both striking, and there are so many ways to wear this to give it a different flavor like thigh high boots for a 60s vibe or stappy sandals for a more modern look. 


Next we have another peekaboo styled dress, our gift from The Annex called Monica Dress which is included in 5 fabulous colors: blue and pink as seen here, plus red, white, and black. Each color comes in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. I accessorized with the beautiful Beloved Jewelry prize called Swirl Choker Necklace and Earrings, which you can see a better look at the earrings in the inset. The choker has a resize version and one without, so you can adjust if need be or wear the one without a script if you head somewhere that scripts may be a concern. The design is very delicate and the pink stones are lovely.


Time to celebrate summer a bit more, with the prize from Gross Princess called Queen Bee Bikini. It includes small and large sizes plus eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique fits, and has bold striping to go with the bold style. This will earn you second glances at your favorite beach or pool.


I am always tempted to make all sorts of puns relating to the store name Entice and how enticing I do genuinely find their clothing, this fantastic Summer Madness Bikini - Anchors being a prime example. This is their prize hiding in the strawberry on their cart, and it is provided in plenty of mesh sizes: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. Entice is the store that introduced me to the Flawless sim a very long time ago, and I have been a huge fan ever since.


Hello Dave is an exciting place to shop for nails, and any of her group members know that she is renowned for her generosity as well as talent. So it might not be a huge surprise that she is offering more than one gift in the strawberries at her cart, but even I was pleasantly surprised to find FOUR of the sweet treats waiting for us! There are two French HUDs (French Ready and French Ready 2) with 35 base colors each, along with the two sets you see above. On the left (my right hand but the left side of the photo) are the 5 designs found in Spring Garden, whose HUD is compatible with Slink, Omega, and Maitreya. On the right side, we have The Difference is Sherbet which is 5 tasty looking colors on the tips in a circular shape. There are two HUDs inside this gift, one for Omega and Slink and the other for Maitreya. If you love manicures as much as I do, this is a cart you do not want to miss!

I am very easily distracted lately, and over a month ago I started a separate blog for just my random thoughts but I never actually published the lone post yet...I think I'll do that later just for a sense of accomplishment ;) It will not be a regular daily thing, just when there is something on my mind that is separate from my posts here. Meanwhile I hope you are all having a wonderful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

We Are On The Guest List

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some treats to share from The Guest List, a cart sale with a free strawberry hunt on the Flawless sim. For each round you will find an exclusive offer at each cart for $100L or less, and most carts have a free strawberry that holds a reward for finding it. Those delightful gifts are what I will be showing you this evening (and next), and I must say it was very pleasant to explore the cart sale and find the berries while seeing the wonderful items for sale. 


This beautiful gown is in the strawberry at the Applique` Chic cart, their AC Halter Dress Purple. It includes standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. That fabric is certainly eye-catching with those softly colored flowers and greenery!


This is two prizes combined into one fun look, starting with the amusing @rOrO prize called Tie Dye Boob Tee. Before putting it on, I expected a very short or low cut shirt that barely covered the girls, instead I burst out laughing at the traditional style tee with the interesting artwork. It brought out my Beavis & Butthead type sense of humor, that's for sure! Find the berry and you will get this shirt in Maitreya and Physique sizes, if you already have an alpha layer in your inventory I'm sure it would work with the classic avatar body as well. The leggings are our gift from Loordes of London, called Motya Leggings #17 and are a simple black in standard mesh sizes. They are the perfect foil for a brightly colored top, as you can see, and will go with nearly anything in your inventory.


Summer is definitely not over (not that it ever has to end in SL) so this prize from Blacklace is especially handy. It is called Splash: The Guest Gift and includes two colors of this same sexy bikini in system layers plus an Omega HUD. You can switch the colors if you wish and wear the blue top with the green bottoms or vice versa, whatever suits your mood. I appreciate the little details like the clasp in the back of the top, and the soft looking band at the waist. Also I am on quite the floral kick lately, so the pattern on the bottoms really caught my attention.


You should actually find 2 strawberries at the Blacklace cart, the other containing the Blacklace Beauty Citrus Nails I have been wearing for all these photos. They offer 3 shades of sliced citrus fruit, looks like lemon and lime and orange, on HUDs for Maitreya and Omega. They are richly glossy and made me crave a tall glass of ice water with slices of any of these fruits floating in it, or a popsicle in one of these summery flavors.

Hair note of the night: Truth Hair VIP group gift for August is here, and with bonuses! If you are in the group ($350L to join I believe) there are some gifts in the group notices from yesterday, starting with the Elie hair seen here. It has a Stylist HUD with choices of each side behind the ear or not, behind the shoulder or in front, and the hair pins on or off. Another terrific aspect is the new Rainbow HUD with some really wild and exciting color combinations, and the bangs (worn here in all but the first photo) were re-released with the Rainbow HUD as well as July's gift being re-released with the new HUD. Lots of reasons to join if you are not already a member of the group, it is an investment I will never regret as a huge fan of Truth's. I personally love bangs so I will probably add them to any style that doesn't already have them, and would have gladly purchased them if they were not a group gift.

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

Holiday in the Sn@tch Sun

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am excited to share the newest "Fish 4 This" fishing set from Sn@tch, called Holiday in the Sun. There are 23 pieces to catch with your 7 Seas rod, so if you do not already have one, you can grab one at Sn@tch for just $100L for the casual rod that never needs bait, and spend some time hanging out near the lucky boards and riot vendors. Actually you can fish anywhere in the store, it just happens that most fishers tend to gravitate there :) Remember, all the parts are transferable so you can bring your friends and swap them so you can all complete your set faster. I am fortunate as always to have had Xan's help, we relax at Sn@tch together and he shares all his catches with me. He's so thoughtful ♥. You can get help from friends, neighbors, alts, frenemies, LOL, whoever you wish, but you certainly don't need the help if you have the time to fish alone. It's well worth it, as you can see.


There are 7 colors of the Sn@tch Suzy Tied Top and 6 colors of Sn@tch Dotty Pants, the difference being the white top not needing a counterpart in the pants. Here you can see the Violet of the top and pants on the left, and the white top paired with the seafoam pants on the right. The pants have system layer and Omega applier versions (6 system layers to catch, 1 Omega HUD for all colors) as part of the fishing set, while each shirt is bagged with standard mesh sizes along with Hourglass, Physique, and Maitreya versions for each. My shoes here are also quite a catch, hehe, the Sn@tch Jealousy Platforms White for Slink. They are also in the waters for Belleza and Maitreya, so eventually you should catch the size to match your favorite mesh tootsies.


Here we have the Suzy Tied Top and the Dotty Pants each in lovely Peach, and I have added two more catches from this set, the cuffs for the pants. They are white so they match the polka dots on every pair, as well as matching the belt with heart-shaped buckle that is part of the pants textures.


Another shade that the top and pants are each included in is this soft Beige, and I do think they are neutral enough to be paired with another color if you prefer. For example, you could wear the pink or blue shirt with the beige pants. I have also added another component of our fishing set, the Sn@tch Opal Pendant (Silver) which you will see a closer look at in the next image. The designer, Ivey (I was tempted to call her Queen of Sn@tch or Head Sn@tchette but those sound soooo naughty, LOL) does tend to create beautiful jewelry to dress up these Fish 4 This sets, and a wide variety among the various sets.


Pretty in pink, here is the Suzy Tied Top and the Dotty Pants each in a bubblegum shade. I also have that closer look at the necklace that I promised, plenty of rich details to go with that stunning opal stone (a longtime personal favorite gemstone of mine) in the center. Another addition here, one of the two lipsticks that are part of Holiday in the Sun, this being the Sn@tch Sheer Gloss Lipstick in Pink. No wonder I am smiling here!


One more glimpse, this is the Blue version of the top and the pants, with the Sn@tch Sheer Gloss Lipstick in Peach. I put a closer view of the lipstick as an inset so you can fully appreciate the amazing shine she gave these beauties. The necklace looks particularly good with the blue top, but I like opals with any color clothing. 

I hope you are all having a terrific day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Hello Again Summer

Hiya everyone! Tonight is my third and final post of prizes from the Brii Underground dollarbie hunt, the Hello Summer Hunt, where you will explore the store (assisted by a notecard of hints when you click the hunt sign on the wall) seeking palm trees that are set for sale for one linden. The prizes are terrific outfits that have shoes and makeup, sometimes even more added features, so you can easily get dressed head to toe when you want to look great but not spend hours fiddling in your inventory matching things together. Some days I have time to be creative, other days I deeply appreciate that someone did it for me :) I also have a group gift to show you from Brii Underground, their store group which is free to join. 


This is prize #8 called Keila Summer Style Complet Outfit, and it starts with the brightly colored one-piece suit in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The sunglasses you see are also included, as are the matching heels for Slink High feet. My makeup here is also provided as a system layer and an Omega applier. Usually I would shy away from orange because of my auburn hair preference, but the green in the pattern makes it much more flattering so I was pleasantly surprised. This is fun if you are visiting a pool or a beach in SL soon, perfect choice of look.


For a dressy seasonal look, find palm tree #9 and you can claim the Karolina Summer Style Complet Outfit for just $1L. The dress is offered in a lucky 13 mesh sizes and features a gorgeous watercolor design. Matching shoes for Slink High are also included (seen here barely peeping out on the left) and the makeup is in a system layer plus an Omega HUD. I personally will consider this year-round wear and be delighted to wear it whatever the season.


This lovely outfit is found in prize #10 and is called Inacia Summer Style Complet Outfit. The dress comes in a lucky 13 mesh sizes, while the belt comes in standard mesh sizes and since it is separate you can choose if you wish to wear it or not. The matching heels are for Slink High, and the makeup is included in a system layer and an Omega applier. I was drawn to this because of the vivid green color and the birds decorating the top ♥.


For my last look of the evening, I chose a very playful outfit indeed, a free group gift for the Brii Underground store group which is free to join. This is called Lyuha Baseball Style Complet Outfit, and there are plenty of extras with this fun gift. The costume (top and pants as one mesh piece) comes in 5 standard sizes plus 5 fitmesh sizes, as well as Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine fits. The anklet and choker seen here are also included, along with the sneakers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high. The tattoo on my ribcage is provided in a system layer and appliers for Omega, Maitreya, and Slink, while the makeup is a system layer plus an Omega HUD. Included but not shown, a baseball cap that says Sexy 01 on it so it matches the back of the jersey perfectly. How cute are those baseball pockets on the back? :) I really need to find a good excuse to wear a costume soon so I can show off this cute gift.

Today was every bit as busy as expected, but overall I enjoyed it and I will get to relax a bit more tomorrow. I definitely need more sleep, so that is a part of my plan :) Good heavens, sometimes it just feels incredible to get some extra zzz's, doesn't it? I hope all of you are enjoying your weekends, many magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Hello Summer Treats

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am excited to show you more of the Brii Underground Hello Summer Hunt prizes. Just head to the store and click the sign to get the notecard of hints, then find all 10 palm trees hidden upstairs and down for just $1L each. The outfits inside are intended for summer, but most can be appreciated year-round in my opinion. I also have a group gift for the SLF&O group I picked up there too, to show you tonight as an added bonus.


This is prize #5 and is called Ladaria Summer Style Complet Outfit. The top is provided in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and the skirt comes in standard and Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. Also included are the belt in standard sizes, heels for Slink High feet, and the makeup seen here in a system layer and Omega HUD. The bright colors are so cheerful and well coordinated.


Next we have a more casual look, from prize #6 called Ksanochka Summer Style Complet Outfit. The overalls are in lucky 13 mesh sizes, while the bra is in system layers plus appliers for Omega, Maitreya, and Slink. The sunglasses shown are included too, as are the heels for Slink High and the makeup on a system layer and an Omega HUD. Blue and yellow together do remind me of summer (perhaps sun and ocean, or sun and the sky itself) and the denim accents go well with the frosty blue shoes and sunglasses.


This sweetly feminine look is found in palm tree #7 and is called Kristen Summer Style Complet Outfit. The dress has those same lucky 13 sizes to choose from (that's 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and the heels are for Slink High feet. The matching makeup is also included, as an Omega HUD for all compatible mesh heads. I think this is an adorable look for day or evening.


One last look of the evening, this is the SLF&O group gift I hinted at in the beginning of the post, named Lina Summer Style Complet Outfit. In fun shades of orange and blue, we are decorated from head to toe by this generous gift which starts with the top and shorts each in that lucky 13 of mesh sizes. The matching hat has a built in resize script, as well as the sunglasses, and the heels you see here are included in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink sizes. The tattoo wrapped around my thigh is in system layers and appliers for Omega, Maitreya, and Slink, while the bold makeup I am sporting is provided on Omega and a system layer. I feel like the pattern reminds me of a phoenix, as I cannot decide if they put me more in mind of flames or feathers. Fun!

Today was not a typical Friday for me, and dental visits are never particularly enjoyable, but dinner was tasty and I expect the rest of the weekend to go well as long as storms don't disrupt anything. I did receive good news, a friend from high school was in desperate need of a kidney transplant and a donor was found yesterday, surgery was today and seems to be a complete success :) Such a relief! His family, including a baby daughter just a few months old, deserve to have their husband/father/brother/etc. healthy and around for many more years to come and I am so very happy for them all. I hope this weekend treats you all wonderfully, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
