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!!

Hello Summer at Brii Underground

Hiya everyone! I visited Brii Underground to explore their monthly dollarbie hunt for August, the Hello Summer Hunt, with 10 little palm trees to find that each cost a mere $1L and hold full outfits as our rewards for locating them. There is a hunt notecard when you click the sign, so you have some guidance when looking for the tropical trees, and be sure to explore upstairs as well as the main floor. It makes life so much easier to have a dress or top and pants, along with shoes and matching accessories, all perfectly coordinated and in one folder so you can just choose your mood and get dressed with a few quick clicks. 


When you find palm tree #1, you get to claim this lovely Luda Summer Style Complet Outfit for a single linden. It includes the strapless mini dress in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP versions. The sandals are in there too, for Slink High feet, and the makeup I am wearing is an Omega HUD based on Catwa Jessica but compatible with any Omega friendly head. The playful designs in such bright colors really made me smile.


Speaking of bright colors, prize #2 is packed with them as well! This is Lucy Summer Style Complet Outfit and it starts with the top in standard, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes, and continues with the shorts in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink). Then we add the matching heels for Slink High, and the makeup which is an Omega applier, to complete our cheerful outfit. 


Prize #3 contains a sizzling monochrome look called Lidyi Summer Style Complet Outfit, focused on a charming jumpsuit in sizes for Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The sunglasses I am wearing are also included, as are the heels for Slink High and the makeup in a system layer and an Omega applier. The straps in the front are a terrific touch, and with them we don't need a necklace to jazz up this look. The most I would be tempted to add would be a favorite bracelet perhaps, but the outfit is quite complete without any adornment.


My last look for the evening is a golden hued treat, the Lenusy Summer Style Complet Outfit. The dress comes in plenty of mesh sizes for all (standard, Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP) and the matching heels for Slink High are included too. Also the makeup seen here is tucked inside the prize as well, as an Omega HUD. This particular shade of yellow reminds me of sunflowers, with the abstract multicolored pattern as a special touch.

One busy day down, several more to go....my acupuncture appointment went well, and tomorrow will be a dental visit followed by a comforting meal from my favorite vegan Chinese place. I'm not even a vegan or vegetarian, it just happens to be an excellent restaurant that is popular with carnivores and omnivores galore :) One of my favorite treats from there is stewed vegetable pot with veggie meatballs and an array of delicious vegetables in a gingery sauce. Mmm! I am looking forward to it even more than I realized it seems. I hope all of you are having a beautiful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Virtue Part Two

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to show you the rest of the prizes I found in the Free Dove mini hunt by Virtue, although tonight's prizes are all found at the Virtue mainstore (with one exception, I paired one of yesterday's skirts with a blouse for tonight). It is always a pleasure to visit Free Dove, and any of their generous designers' mainstores, and there are 3 hidden roses waiting at Virtue for us to find for free.


First we have the beautiful Virtue FDH 1 Blouse, with frilly cap sleeves and a sweet bow on one side of the neckline. It comes in standard, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes, and is found at the Virtue mainstore. The skirt is the same one I showed you yesterday, Virtue FDH 9 Skirt, hiding at the Free Dove store. It is included in standard, Maitreya, Venus, and Physique sizes. I did mention it was versatile :)


Looking ahead to cooler temperatures (or across the grid to a colder climate), I can forsee much usefulness from prize #2, the Virtue FDH 2 Coat. It includes standard mesh sizes and is ideal for layering over your favorite system/applier layers or wearing on its own as a coatdress. The vibrant shade of blue is balanced by the darker tones in the plaid pattern really well, giving it an elegant feel. It just so happens that I found a copy of this (same rose name/number, same contents) at Free Dove as well, but never did find #10.


This sweet dress is the Virtue FDH 3 Dress, a stunning short sleeved frock in soft pink with floral pattern and a delicate bow on the belt. It includes standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Venus, and Physique versions. I was taken by the beauty of this dress and will gladly wear it often. 


While I was at Virtue searching for the roses, I also found a gift for the FabFree group that I could not resist picking up to show all of you. This is Virtue Eve {Lavender} and includes standard sizes, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Venus versions. The subtle design on the top of the bodice and the skirt are lovely, and the style has a touch of retro flair. Just wear your FabFree group tag to claim it.

I have a busy few days ahead, but I have a few fun blog plans in the works too, so there is always something happening here in my little corner of the world. Tomorrow is my much-needed acupuncture appointment, Friday is a dental visit, and then my usual weekend full of plans. I hope you're all enjoying your day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Free Dove Hunt - Virtue

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have another Free Dove mini hunt to explore, the lovely red roses (blooms on long stems) of Virtue, who have hidden 7 at Free Dove and 3 back at their main store. The peeks this evening are from the ones at Free Dove, and these dresses and blouse/skirt pairings are all more modest than typical SL clothing. As you will see, that is not a bad thing in any way, and I appreciate the variety. In a world where you can teleport from a nude beach to a museum, then to a ski resort, then a church all in a short while, it makes sense to have different types of clothing for each :) Free Dove is a wonderful resource for finding a wardrobe to suit any activity without draining your linden balance, and these hunts are the cherry on top. I also have a new release from LIVIA to show you, the nails I am sporting in all of tonight's photos.


First we get to look pretty in pink by finding roses #6 and 7, which hold this lovely skirt and layered blouse. The top is Virtue FDH 6 Blouse, in sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The skirt is Virtue FDH 7 Skirt, which is included in standard, Venus, Maitreya, and Physique sizing. They are a perfect match if you wish to wear them together, but you can also mingle them with anything already in your wardrobe to create your own style if you prefer. I love the delicate shading and soft texture.


This deep mauve beauty is the Virtue FDH 4 Dress, and is found inside rose #4 as the name implies. It has the look of a blouse and high waisted skirt layered together, but it is a single mesh piece in standard sizes. The sleeves and collar made me think Victorian, although I am pretty sure my mom had a blouse that style in the late 60s or early 70s (we have been looking through tons of old photos lately) so I would certainly call this style timeless.


Sky blue is another flattering color for many occasions, and is an ideal backdrop for a subtle paisley print on prize #5 called Virtue FDH 5 Dress. It comes in standard mesh sizes along with Maitreya, Physique, and Venus versions, and I think that square neckline is the perfect frame for your favorite necklace.


Roses 8 and 9 work quite well together as you can see, offering this blouse and skirt as the prizes when you find them. Virtue FDH 8 Blouse is included in standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic fine versions, and is a soothing shade of green. The skirt is Virtue FDH 9 Skirt and comes in standard, Maitreya, Venus, and Physique sizes. I am thinking some classic black heels and simple gold or silver jewelry will suit this, or something with jade or emeralds to really highlight the green in the top.


This is one of LIVIA's newest releases at their main store, their Amore Nails Applier HUD for Slink, Omega, Maitreya, Vista, and Tuty. The HUD is just $99L and offers 6 colors ranging from lavender to a brick red, all with a sweet outline of the top of a heart by the cuticle. These will look fantastic on stiletto shaped nails as well as being adorable on my traditional Slink nails. Choose any shade and your nails will have a touch of romance and plenty of shine. 

My computer seems to be doing well after my big hardware upgrade, so I am very grateful and relieved that despite the delay, it is working out to be a good decision. I enjoyed my extended weekend, but am glad to be blogging again too :) I hope you are all having a fantastic day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each and every one of you!!
