Advent Time and Peace On Earth

Hiya everyone! It is time to see some more Advent calendar gifts, including one you can claim tomorrow (the 11th) so it is a special preview. I also have some more Peace On Earth 10 Hunt prizes to share, meanwhile other gridwide hunts are starting that I want to show you too so there will be more variety among the next several posts. With nearly 300 stores participating in the POE 10 Hunt, I wind up choosing randomly and sometimes picking a particular favorite here and there. The website will be your best friend and helpful guide since some of the landmarks in the hunt globes are not updated, but the site is very well maintained and has the hints in case there is no hint giver at the store (or in my case sometimes, it simply won't rez). Let's get to the goodies!


For the 10th day of the Advent season, *baci* has this sexy Malia dress as their gift for all, no group necessary. Just click the 10 box on the calendar in the main entrance area of the store, and you will claim this dress in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, & Slink) as well as a HUD with 9 color choices to tint it. I do appreciate the variety offered by those HUDs, and they are much easier on the inventory count than having each color separately in each size. 


This fantastic outfit from Entice is actually two Advent gifts in one, starting with today's Sober Top - Red which comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and a fitted version. Just find gift #10 under their Christmas tree, have your free Entice group tag active, and pay it $1L. You'll be automatically refunded the linden, and given this generous gift. The matching Sober Leggings - Red are tomorrow's gift, so once midnight SL time hits you can claim this one in the same way from the day 11 present. If you miss any days, you can buy the previous gifts for $25L each and there is a sign near the tree with images of all of them. 


Moonstar's advent calendar is open to all, no group tag needed, and today's gift is an alluring bodysuit called *V* Poinsettia Bodysuit. There are sizes included for standard, Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP. The slender straps on the front are very eye-catching, while the back has a great texture with lacing and a bright red bow. This seasonal treat is yours for free, just for visiting and clicking the calendar today.


Time to see a couple of hunt prizes, this is our prize from Ink Blots and is simply named POE 10 Female Gift. There are several fitmesh sizes included, standard plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. I enjoyed the contrast of the bright white lace against the knit of the sweater. Just find their hidden globe and this pretty dress is all yours.


I must admit, when I tried on the hunt prize from Wicca's Wardrobe, I was so impressed I let out a soft appreciative whistle. Its name is Rania, and it is included in Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique versions. The deep red is contrasted by a wide green belt and some fun gold stars, and you will definitely want to wear your hair up to show off this back! The delicate chains running down and across our back, they are just fantastic and will ensure your next holiday event will be memorable. Just find the hidden globe to claim this free stunner of a dress.

At this point it was about 9 hours ago that I finished my last blog post, and I have to confess that I am still sitting here! I have only gotten up a handful of times, very briefly, and after all this time online I am one tired magpie. I am going to grab some breakfast and then grab a nap, more like a full sleep cycle probably. I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Peaceful Saturday

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am showing you a handful of Peace On Earth 10 Hunt prizes, and am again struck by the generosity of the participating designers. Just keep in mind when you see these prizes, that they are offered completely free just for our visiting the stores and searching for the hidden globes. The quality is outstanding, and I do keep many of the landmarks for future shopping expeditions because I am so impressed by what I see. The hunt website is extremely helpful for finding hints and for ensuring that you are in the right location, as the landmarks are updated on the site sometimes before they are fixed in an individual globe, and occasionally a store needs to be skipped so you can find that info plus the next correct link on the site. With nearly 300 stores taking part, this is a huge hunt that will take you to old favorite stores and possibly some new favorites :) I also enjoy seeing the holiday decorations in so many of the locations, just another example of the wealth of creativity in Second Life.


We start the evening with a sparkly gift from MARIPOSA, their ~m~ Mini Wrap Glitter POE 10 which sounds like it was designed specifically for us hunters. There are sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, so quite a range of options. The wrap style makes for some attractive draping, really accentuates our curves. There are also face and body lights included to enhance the glitter appearance, I am not wearing them since this is not animated and you can't really see the glitter moving in my image but I do suggest at least trying them on to see what you think. I normally wear the face light for my GA.EG head and I do think that helped.


Gidget's Style has this GS Gilda Mesh Dress tucked inside their hidden globe, just waiting for you to give it a click to claim it in 5 standard mesh sizes. The deep burgundy shade is topped with a ruffle on the skirt adorned with elegant gold ornaments, a pretty pattern that will add some festive cheer wherever you wear it.


This cuddly looking sweater dress is our prize from Maci, their Christmas Knit Dress. It is included in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The pattern is a traditional winter sweater design with cute snowflakes, and I would be tempted to wear some solid colored leggings or jeans beneath this if I wanted a tunic look instead of the short dress.


This stunning look is our prize from Matahari, called Eirlys Mesh Dress Ice Blue. The strappy dress comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, and standard mesh sizing, and the ceramic snowflake necklace and matching earrings are included as well. They mirror the snowflakes of the pattern found on the sheer layer of the skirt, which complements the crackled ice of the main fabric design perfectly. 


This playful romper is from 1 Hundred and is simply called POE 10 Gifty! Lace Romper. Find the globe and you will receive this in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The lace is accentuated with some beautiful embroidery in a snowy white that shows up terrifically on the bright red of the lace. This might be a nice choice for snuggling in front of a fireplace with someone special on a chilly winter evening like tonight.


In each of tonight's photos I have been enjoying various manicures from our prize found at LUNA Body Art, and here is a closer look at these wintry designs. You will receive HUDs for Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, and Vista when you find the globe, and each offers 10 designs: 5 colors each in solid or with a reindeer silhouette on it. The darker colors have him in white, while the gold nails have the reindeer in green and the white has him in red. It is an elegant way to decorate your nails for the season.

It was a good day here, despite the snow, which started falling at least an hour before I went out but not too heavily. All told we got about 2 or 3 inches of snow, but it should melt quickly in the sunshine tomorrow from the roads. The market was decorated with beautiful Christmas lights and wreaths, it is indoor so they were strung high on the ceiling and it looked magical. I really enjoyed my morning, and I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend too :) Many magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

On The 8th Day of Advent...

Hiya everyone! Today I have several Advent calendar gifts to show you, either needing no group at all or a group tag that is free to join. I am so grateful for this time of year and all the designers who offer sweet treats to their customers. There are also a couple more Peace On Earth 10 Hunt prizes in today's post, and I am still barely scratching the surface of the hundreds of amazing prizes you can find for free. As I've mentioned before, you will be looking for globes by following the hints you find either on the website or from the sample globes on the signs at most of the stores. I also need to suggest that you have the website open for the most updated list of SLurls, as there have been some mistakes with the landmarks in the prize folders. If you seem to have landed at the wrong store, check to make sure you're at the right sim, and if you look to be in the right store but cannot find a sign or any trace of the globe, you might be in the wrong branch of the store (happened to me at least twice) so just refer to the site to verify where you need to be. Big props to the organizers for keeping us on track with the website, for those cases where the store owner doesn't get the chance to change the LM in their globe fast enough.


Two different Advent calendar gifts here, yet they work really well together and I do plan on wearing them as an outfit again soon. The sweater is from Sweet E's and is their Gift 8 Animated Sweater, in sizes for standard, Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The animation is hard to capture in a still image of course, but the 3 lights the penguin is holding light up in turns and he moves slightly. It's adorable! You will need the free Sweet E's group tag to claim this, and prior gifts can be purchased at the Advent board (upstairs) if you missed any. The pants are from Applique` Chic, whose Advent gifts are free for all with no group needed, just purchase for $0L outside the front door of the store right where you land. They are the Day 8 Snowflake Leggings in Blue, and come in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. Prior days' gifts are available for purchase for just $10L each if you have missed any of them.


Next we head to Entice, whose free group members can find a present each day under the Christmas tree, just wear your tag and pay today's gift $1L to be immediately refunded and receive this lovely Just a Dream Dress in Red. There are sizes included for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a Fitted version, so there is a wide range for this flattering dress.


I have yet another Advent calendar to tell you about, one that I just found out about this morning at *baci*. No group is needed, just click today's date on the board in the middle of the store to receive this lu-Lady Dress fatpack containing 5 different varieties of this beauty. On the left I am wearing Miss Flower and on the right is Dona Flor, and each dress is packed individually with what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes included: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. This style is so pretty, with cutouts on the sides and a big bow at the back of the neck, and the various patterns all look attractive on it.


One of my favorite stops on the Peace On Earth 10 Hunt is Eclectic Stars, as their geek themed products never fail to make me smile. They appeal to gamers, book/TV/movie franchise fans, and science minded people just to name a few. So their prize for the hunt is called Temperance - Holiday Invaders, and did you notice the little pixel aliens on the skirt? Classic video game throwback on a fun, elegant gown! It is included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. 


One last look for today, this is our hunt prize from AlaFolie called CASSY, and it is a fantastic outfit! The dress and sleeves are each provided in sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Classic, and with the sleeves being separate you can choose to wear this as a strapless. There is also a HUD with 3 colors for the dress/sleeves and the same 3 for the lace trim, change them together or separately. The shoes are included in Maitreya Mid, Slink Mid, and Tonic Standard sizes, and their color HUD offers 4 shades to choose from. There are so many ways we can wear this and have it feel like a brand new look, it is as versatile as it is pretty.

Tonight I have a family dinner to attend, and tomorrow morning is my usual farmers market trip (usually accompanied by some other side quests, LOL) so I will be blogging tomorrow evening rather than in the morning. This means rather than Advent calendar gifts, we will be seeing some hunt prizes and whatever else might cross my blogging path ;) I hope you all have a fabulous Friday, with magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

WoW Skins Cart Sale & Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some prizes to share from the WoW Skins Christmas Cart Sale and Hunt, and the carts are very convenient to the landing point of the sim. There are exclusive offers for $50L to $100L, and almost every cart has a free prize hidden inside an iridescent blue snowflake. This cart sale lasts until the 20th of December, and while you're there please continue up to WoW Skins who are offering a free Advent calendar outside with no group needed. So far the prizes have been mainly system skins, so no mesh head/body needed to enjoy them.


First we have the prize from Alias, their Penguin PJ's in Black. This free gift consists of the single mesh piece in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and sandals for Slink flat feet, with a sweet reindeer plush that has a built in hold pose. I love that even he has the same penguin fabric as the pajama pants and the straps of the sandals, and definitely want to snuggle with him in RL as well as SL :)


Sweet Peach Designs has this simply elegant one piece outfit in their snowflake, the SP "PAIGE" with knit sweater and leathery pants. It comes in that same lucky 13 of mesh sizes, so a nice range to fit most of us. I love casual outfits for gridwide hunting, and this can be jazzed up a bit with some jewelry and maybe a pair of brightly colored shoes if you crave a pop of color.


I am feeling flirty here in my new dress from S&B called Kylie Red. Find their flake and you can claim this too, with system layers as well as appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. The skirt panels come in standard mesh sizes and Slink standard sizes, which I believe is because they need to be a bit shorter (or is it longer?) to line up better with the Slink layers. This is another terrific look that you can accessorize to add your own special touch and make it your own.


Our prize from EDELFABRIK is their TwenStar 21-GSPOT outfit, and as you can see there are a lot of components to make up this great look. The bikini top and thong each come in standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, while the short sweater and pants are each included in the same mesh sizes. The handwarmers are in standard, Slink, and Maitreya sizes, the belly piercings (with attached chain looped around the waist) are provided in regular, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique versions. The necklace of dice is in regular and Maitreya sizes, and even our sneakers are included in regular, Maitreya, and Slink flat feet versions. On the left I removed the pants (legs connected to short shorts by slender garters) and the cropped sweater to show you the bikini and belly piercing on their own. I giggled when I realized that the right leg says "Define Bad" down the side, as that expression does crop up this time of year.


Our nails get some love too, when you find the prize at the Princess Rhodes Designs cart you can claim 2 free gifts. On the left side of the photo (really my right hand, but let's not get confusing, LOL) is their Merry Christmas nails, with a total of 6 designs on a HUD that works for Slink, Omega, and Maitreya. On the right side, you can see a sampling of their Frosty Glitter nails, 18 shimmery shades ranging from pastels to deep hues, for Slink or Maitreya or Omega compatible hands/feet. As a side note, you can see the necklace from the last photo closer, and see that they are indeed dice strung together for a lucky look.

Today was certainly busy, and the next few days will be as well...I had an appointment which is why I am blogging at night instead of morning with Advent goodies, and will do the same for Saturday I believe. I also had several errands to take care of, so my day was productive but tiring. Tomorrow's post should be a return to Peace On Earth hunt prizes, and maybe a surprise or two. I hope all of you are having a terrific day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Midweek Magic

Hiya everyone! Today we have a couple of terrific Advent gifts to see, and then some more Peace On Earth 10 Hunt prizes. I am getting a later start than I expected so let's hurry right to the images! :) 


I discovered an Advent calendar I hadn't known about until this morning, at Applique` Chic, so that is certainly good news. This is their Day 6 gift, Knit Dress Moose, which comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Ocacin, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The navy sweater is a delightful contrast for the moose and evergreen tree pattern of the full skirt, and I love the two little buttons at the neckline. No group is needed for this Advent calendar, and prior days are available for $10L each.


Entice has a tropical treat in case you are ready for a warm weather vacation, their Margaritaville Bikini in Aqua. As someone who has seen Jimmy Buffett in concert a time or two (okay, it was 13 times) this name made me very happy, and the style is sure to bring plenty of smiles and admiring looks with those ruffles and lace bows. The top and bottom are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and all you have to do to claim this is find day #6 under their Christmas tree and have your Entice group tag active (free to join) and pay it $1L. You will be refunded the linden automatically, and receive this flirty suit to enjoy.


Next we are back on the Peace On Earth hunt trail, and here I've found a trio of seasonal pj's in the globe at Mara's Mysteries. Their comfy Holiday Pajamas come in blue, green, and red (as seen left to right above) with each color provided in standard fitmesh sizes along with versions for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. Each set is a single mesh piece, and I cannot pick a favorite so I am grateful to have all 3 to wear whenever the mood strikes.


From very casual to elegantly dressy, we head to Always Design where the prize for the ladies includes the full outfit you see above. The dress is included in standard fitmesh sizes, Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The full flexi skirt is also included, as are the necklace, earrings, and watch for some coordinated jewelry. The headpiece is also provided, and even the shoes that are hiding beneath the flurry of flexi (red sandals) are in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. For a simpler look, you can certainly leave the skirt in your folder and just wear the sleek dress beneath with as many or as few accessories as you prefer.


One last look of the day, this is our hunt prize from Indigenous and is their Joy Collection. The top and pants are each provided in standard fitmesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. There is also a terrific HUD with 5 textures for the top and 4 solid colors for the pants, so you can mix and match them for some seasonal variety. I will be wearing one of these looks later tonight when I am hunting, since I do appreciate a pretty casual look while exploring so many stores.

Tomorrow's blog will be at night because I have plans for the morning/early afternoon, and a later blog means no advent gifts so I'm not giving you such a short window to claim them. I promise to show you something else fun though :) I hope you are all enjoying your day so far, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Advent Gifts and Peace On Earth

Hiya everyone! Today I am pleased to share some more Advent gifts from various stores, some needing no group at all and others needing a free group tag. This morning's post will also feature a couple of prizes from the Peace On Earth 10 Hunt, which I look forward to all year long. As I've mentioned in my past few posts, there are nearly 300 participating stores and you will be looking for a globe at each. The hints are on the website as well as being found in sample globes used as hint givers on most of the signs in each store. Just give the globes you find a click, no group necessary, and you will be given a folder with the prize and next landmark inside. Easy peasy, right? There are prizes for men, women, and children, plus accessories, decor, textures, and much more. As I tend to focus on fashion, that is what you will mainly be seeing here throughout the month. Don't worry, I will be interspersing other hunts soon to shake things up :)


If I had to describe this Advent gift from Moonstar in 3 words, I would pick cute, casual, and seasonal. It is called Deer Sweater Set, and includes system layers plus appliers for Lola, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega as well as a matching collar (not shown) with a resize script built in. It is such a great touch that the pockets of the jeans have the same sweet reindeer graphic as the sweater, mirrored onto each pocket. I just might wear this outfit for some more globe hunting tonight :)


Emerald Couture has 2 Advent calendars, mens and womens, for their group (free to join) and one for everyone, no group tag required, and today's gift from that last one is this EC Lucky Gold outfit. It consists of the dress in standard mesh sizes, along with the shoes for Slink High. The details are so fun, like that low slung belt and the unique style of the heels. The non-group Advent calendar is the shelves with boxes on them, and on the adjoining wall to the right are the boards for group members.


One more Advent gift this morning, please wear your free Entice group tag and head over to their Christmas tree, where you will find plenty of presents awaiting. Locate the one for the 5th of December, pay it $1L, and you will be instantly refunded the linden as well as given this Over The Rainbow Dress in Gray. There are sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and the gingham pattern is reminiscent of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz enough that I was humming the song that is referenced in the dress name.


Many of the Peace On Earth hunt prizes have a Christmas theme to them, and this gift from Sweet Peach is a playful example of that. It is called Amileigh Dress and comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP fits. There is also a handy HUD that offers 9 texture choices, two of which you can see here, each a cheeky holiday quip. There are different color variations for some of them, for example if you like the "Sweet But Twisted...Does That Make Me a Candy Cane?" on the left, you could choose it on a white background instead. I wore it earlier while Xan and I were hunting, and he chuckled when he first read it :) I do sometimes joke about being sweet but twisted, or some variation like mostly sweet but do not provoke me. 


My final look this morning is a beautiful gown from the globe at MUNEREIA, which contains a gift for the ladies as well as the gents. This is their PEACEFULLY dress, in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, as well as standard fitmesh sizes. There is also a HUD enclosed with 5 colors to choose from, two of which you can see above, with lacy trim, delicate snowflakes, and a hip sash in those colors. This is an elegant choice for a night out, and a very thoughtful hunt prize.

Something I didn't mention about my weekend was that in addition to a friendly houseguest, I had some little furry intruders show up too...when you live near woods, sometimes the mice take shelter in your house when the weather gets colder. There are 3 humane (catch & release) traps set up with some peanut butter to get their attention, and then back to the woods they will go. I don't want to hurt them, but I don't want them chewing up important things either. Wish me luck in safely relocating them. Meanwhile I hope you're all having a beautiful day, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Monday Morning Treats

Hiya everyone! I am shifting over to blogging in the morning a few days a week so you can see the Advent calendar offers with plenty of time to log in and pick them up throughout the day. I also have some more prizes from the Peace On Earth 10 Hunt to share, since there are so many! There are almost 300 stores taking part in this round, so I do suggest starting soon if you wish to collect all the hidden globes. The hints are on the website as well as on signs at most of the stores, just give the sample globe a click and read local chat for your clue. 


My first Advent calendar stop was Emerald Couture, and they have not one but three different calendars awaiting. The one with cubes on shelves is for everyone, no group tag needed, and in #4 for today you will find this EC Retro Patty Blue dress and matching shoes. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes, while the heels are for Slink High feet. The wall to the right has two advent boards, both of which need the Emerald Couture group tag (free to join), the top one is for the women and the bottom is for the men, so yes guys, you have you very own Advent calendar here. I really appreciate that there is something here for everyone.


Sweet E's has an Advent calendar for their free group as well, just head upstairs and click the correct date with your group tag active. Today's gift hiding inside #4 is this cozy shirt and plaid bottoms, each in standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a Fitted version. I just might wear that adorable shirt with a pair of jeans instead for variety, and in warmer seasons I can add a simple tank top to these pants to change things up a bit. 


I am happily displaying two Peace On Earth hunt prizes here, let's start with the bold red mini dress. It is by Daddy's Choice Designs and called Red Latex Mini, and includes standard sizes, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. It looks to be materials enabled, as it was picking up some shine from lights in my skybox. My tattoo is our prize from White Widow, called Earthling, and this includes plenty of appliers for various mesh bodies and heads: Maitreya, Catwa, Genesis, Belleza, Lelutka, Omega, TMP, Signature, Sking Brazilia Doll, and Slink. There are no system layers, so this one is for mesh only. I used the Maitreya HUD on my body and the Omega applier for my GA.EG head, which allows it to trail up behind my right ear the way you see in the photo.


The globe at Facepalm holds this +FCC+ Carol dress, in a deep green with a red collar and belt/bow. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The colors are ideal for Christmas, yet at first glance the green appears black so it isn't strictly seasonal. 


My final look is another hunt prize, this being from Silvan Moon Designs. It is called Belladonna Ravenwood Dress Set, and it is a single piece for easy wearing, in Maitreya and Slink sizes. It has so many terrific details, from the overcoat to the vest, ruffles at the neck, rows of shiny buttons, and the different textures of the skirt. This is a very eye-catching gift for many occasions and moods.

I am still awake from last night's post, and yes it is after 9AM in my little corner of the world... *yawn* I guess my insomnia is almost an advantage at odd times like this. Once I get this wrapped up and the credits all neatly together, I will probably hibernate all day ;) It is a chilly day with frost on the lawns this morning, so I'm glad to be staying indoors and warm. Have a great day everyone, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
