More Sn@tch Grab Bag Goodies

Hiya everyone! Tonight we will take a look at some more of the prizes from the current Sn@tch fishing round, which you can win by hanging out with your 7 Seas fishing rod (available for purchase there or anywhere you see a 7 Seas logo, and lasts forever) by the lucky boards and riot boards. You can win lucky prizes and help lower the price on some bargains on the riot boards while fishing with your friends, or make new ones there. The 20 grab bags are tradeable since they are transferable, so the more the merrier. These Fall Grab Bag items will bring some fresh seasonal flavor to your inventory.


Our first look of the night has a few of the prizes for your viewing pleasure, starting with the jeans from grab bag #16. These great Sn@tch Daydream Jeans in Blue include system layers and an Omega applier as well as the cuffs you can edit and adjust as needed. On the left I have topped them with the Sn@tch India Halter Top in Brown from bag #9, which is included in standard sizes plus a fitted version, and has a completely open back. On the right is prize #10 called Sn@tch Rada Chenille Sweater in Brown, an off the shoulder style with cozy extra long sleeves, which comes in 4 fitmesh standard sizes (S,M,L,XL) and Maitreya and Belleza fits. Also tonight I am wearing prize #1, the Sn@tch Charlotte Hair Mini Natural Pack in all the photos, which includes 2 sizes and a HUD with 5 color options.


If you are a fan of short sleeved sweaters as I am, you will definitely want to catch #11 to claim this Sn@tch Sooner Sweater in Fall colors. On the left is the brown and the maroon can be seen to the right, each in system and Omega to suit classic or mesh avatars. The layers and HUD use both the top and bottom for the full length of the sweater, so I am wearing the jeans as an underwear layer beneath the pants layer of the bottom sweater portion.


Another fun find is grab bag #19 which holds the Sn@tch Henley Tee in Brown and Khaki, each in system layers and Omega applier. The same information holds true for this shirt as the previous photo, with the pants layer being needed for the bottom of the long shirt so my jeans are on the underwear layer. You may need to toggle the mask for the underwear layer of your body's HUD to make them both visible, as I did for my Slink Physique body. You might have noticed my necklace here, that beauty is from grab bag #13 called Sn@tch Passionata Necklace in Pewter. It is a nice match for many of the prizes in this fishing set, as well as being a pretty neutral for most of your favorite outfits in any style.


With all those casual cuties so far, you might be wondering if any of the prizes are a bit more dressy. Never fear, Ivey's got you covered, literally! This is the Sn@tch Karlie Sequin Dress in Khaki from grab bag #17, which holds standard mesh sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. I love the texture with those shimmery sequins, and the bare shoulders make this a terrific style. I also added one of the two lipstick shades found in prize #20, the Sn@tch Deadly Matte Lipstick. This is the Taupe choice, included in system layer and Omega applier.


One last look of the evening, I am showing you the other Deadly Matte Lipstick shade here which is the Bronze. It is a very deep and dramatic shade, ideal for Fall or whenever you are in the mood for a bold lip. This beautiful dress is from grab bag #18 called Sn@tch Shelby Wrap Dress in Taupe, provided in standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink sizing. I am a big fan of wrap dresses, and this intriguing pattern is in perfect autumn colors.

It has been a fun but busy day here, which I will probably be able to say again for the next few days :) Things are always better with good company, and weekends for me are generally enjoyable with various things to do around my town. I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fishing for Fall Grab Bags at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! The current round of fishing at Sn@tch is an exciting one, with Fall Grab Bags as the Fish 4 This set. There are 20 different bags to catch with your 7 Seas fishing rod (which can be purchased there and reused over and over) which contain an assortment of seasonal goodies, clothing and accessories to start your autumn in style. The sets change every other Wednesday, so you have almost a week left to complete this collection with the help of your friends since they are transferable and can be swapped with fellow fishers. Tonight I will be showing you just a few of the many treats waiting for you.


The first thing I would like to point out is that my pretty hair this evening is from grab bag #1, Sn@tch Charlotte Hair in its Mini Natural Pack. There are two sizes included along with a HUD that offers 5 color choices. I love the way the style is casually pulled over one shoulder, and the shiny textures are a plus. As for the outfit, it is found in grab bag #2 and named Sn@tch Betsy Jersey & Plaid Dress in Blue. It is included in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits. The peekaboo belly revealed by a small knot is adorable, and the skirt is a fun match.


I chose the beautiful brunette color from the hair HUD and changed into a couple more grab bag finds, starting with the Sn@tch Tatum Sequin Sweater in Pewter found in bag #3. This toasty looking top with cozy neckline is included in standard sizes and Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. My intriguing pants are the Sn@tch Two Faced Jeans in Plaids, the blue version, from grab bag #7. They also include a brown option, both in system layers and an Omega applier, plus the cute cuffs I am wearing. They look great coming and going, with half in solid black and the other half in stunning plaid.


The brown choice of the Two Faced Jeans are as pretty as the blue, and here I topped them with this striking Sn@tch Lorraine Corset in Brown. Tucked safely inside grab bag #4 are system layers and an Omega applier for the top and bottom. To layer it, I used the shirt and pants layers for the corset, and the underwear layer of the pants so you could see exactly where the corset extends to. The delicate flowers add a special touch to the tightly laced corset, don't they? Another treat you will be happy to find in a grab bag is this pair of Sn@tch High Heel Sneaks in Fall, with a richly colored design that certainly evokes the season. They are from grab bag #8.


Next we have a comfy duo from bag #6 called Fallon Jacket & Scarf in Khaki. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink sizes, and the single mesh piece offers the appearance of an open jacket framed by a solid black scarf, held in place by a slender belt. You can layer a shirt beneath, or wear it as is if you are feeling bold.


For our last look of the evening, I chose the alluring dress from bag #12 called Sn@tch Joy Mini Dress in Khaki. She comes in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The stripes have a very classic look, and the fit and flare style is so flattering!

I am already enjoying my busy long weekend, and the actual weekend will be upon us soon which I hope is a pleasant one for everyone. Magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Group Gifts from Glitter

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have one place for you to visit to pick up all of the gifts you see in my blog and many more, *GLITTER*. Their store group is free to join, and all you need to do is walk all the way down the courtyard from the landing zone and enter the main building, then walk towards the back wall. Turn around to face the way you came in, and you should see a double column of group gifts behind a pink sign that you can click to join from local chat. Most of the gifts are for standard mesh sizes, so they are compatible with either classic or mesh avatar bodies. GLITTER has a wide variety of styles, and their generous gifts reflect a sample of that.


The first lovely dress I'd like to show you is the Glitter Fifties Dots Halter Mesh Dress, which comes in standard sizes and has a sweet accent of a flower attached to the right strap. The tiny polka dots and full skirt are terrific details too, and can imagine my grandmother wearing something like this when she met my grandfather all those years ago. Fashion is cyclical, and this looks as beautiful today as it would in the 50s.


If you need something to wear for a summery pursuit (beach, cruise, reliving a fond summer memory) then I suggest picking up the Glitter Hope Flowers Mesh Outfit Group Gift. The top and skirt each come in standard mesh sizes, with dramatic high-low hem and pretty flowers printed on both pieces. This is truly a tropical treat.


We visit the past again with the Glitter American Graffiti Mesh dress in standard sizes, which wraps you in a black overcoat with white and polka dots peeking out. Even the buttons add a splash of contrast, which really pops in pictures so this might be a fun choice for a new profile picture. There are also plenty of themed clubs around SL where this dress would be right at home, and there is a weekend approaching so maybe this look can inspire you to try someplace new.


This is Glitter Macy Boho Long Mesh Dress Group Gift, and it features not only more polka dots, but bright stripes on the ruffled part of the skirt. That intense magenta is sure to turn heads, and the style is nice for this time of year. Claim this gift and you receive standard mesh sizes, which proved compatible with my Slink Physique body and its alpha HUD.


I think this dress wants me to take it out dancing too! It is called Glitter Ilenia Mesh Dress Group Gift, and like the others seen tonight it is included in standard mesh sizing. The halter neck is quite flattering, and I love the bright flowers against the black background. This can be paired with your favorite shoes and maybe a bracelet or pair of earrings, and you can look fantastic in a snap. 

My houseguest should be arriving within the hour, and I'm very excited as usual :) My online time will be reduced for a few days while I help the houseguest enjoy a much deserved vacation from work stress. All of you deserve a beautiful day/evening, with magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Royal Renaissance Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am sharing a few hunt prizes from The Renaissance VII Hunt whose theme is Kings, Queens, & Fools. It does end on the 30th so you have just a few days to track down the hidden green gargoyles containing the prizes you want. There is a picture on their website of what you are looking for, and each store has a sign with a hint giver (that same green gargoyle) to help you in your searches. There are some preview pictures on the site as well, lots of decor and unisex prizes so this is another great hunt to employ teamwork including your favorite male avatars. Let's step back in time to the Renaissance to dress like royalty, shall we?


Suki's Silken Fashions is offering mens and womens prizes, and this is their 18th Century Privateer Captain's Lady outfit (the Captain is the male gift). The dress comes in standard mesh sizes plus the two smallest in flat chested versions, with a color change HUD that sadly was not working for me today, as some days HUDs and I do not seem to communicate correctly. Also included are the lace sleeves, necklace, boots, and the treasure chest in my left hand which has the hold pose seen here built in. Not shown but also included are 5 colors of hair in a classic updo.


This regal look can be found at AdelleArts Manor Fashions, and is the female prize which is hiding inside that gargoyle with a coordinated prize for the gents. The royal blue and gold gown with dramatic collar is provided in standard fitmesh sizes plus a Maitreya version, along with the necklace and some matching shoes for Maitreya Mid. Included but not shown, a hair with crown that can complete the look if you choose. 


Here we step away from the Renaissance to plunge into delightful fantasy, with this prize from Feyline Fashions. Their *FF* Forest Queen is a very detailed costume, comprised of the top, gloves, and pants in system layers and an Omega applier, a long flexi skirt, ivy for the chest and each upper arm, hand leaves, a headdress in three pieces, matching sandals, and the staff with a hold pose built in. The staff does emit particles, they are subtle and infrequent so it looks like I did not catch any in my photos. I am definitely ready to rule the forest in this striking ensemble!


This chic look is Damsel in this Dress by COVETED! and the name made me chuckle. As you can see, this is a materials enabled mesh dress (which comes in standard sizes) from the way it is picking up hints of the lighting in my skybox backyard. The corset and long bell sleeves add drama, and the deep colors are even more highlighted by the glossy texture. There is also a men's prize, an Autumn Spice outfit, so our guys are not forgotten at this store either.


For my last look, I would love to offer you a tasty snack or beverage from Kittycat's Creations. Their prize is named Owl's Eatery Tray, and when you or your guests click the drink they will receive an Owl's Butter Beer of their very own. The food disappears when clicked and emotes in local chat, but is not offered as an inventory item the way the butter beer is. The butter beer can be thrown and is Spellfire scripted for personal food and for damage on throwing, so this can be integrated into your roleplay. Also, the tray has a modest LI of 5 if you wish to rez it out instead of carrying it with the built in pose.

I have several very busy days ahead, with a beloved houseguest arriving tomorrow night to stay until Sunday night. There are lots of fun plans on the horizon, and I am unsure yet how that will affect my blogging schedule but you know by now that I will do my best :) Once October begins, there are some really exciting things to look forward to, like a Rally to Rescue charity event to help animals in need, and another Wash Cart Sale which always makes me happy. I hope you are all having a fantastic day/evening, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

Sweet Free Gifts

Hiya everyone! I have some one stop shopping for you tonight, and the best part is that all my featured clothing is actually free gifts. So "shopping" might be the wrong word, but you are only visiting one location to pick them up, Sweet E's. This terrific store offers group gifts for several different groups which can all be found upstairs past the lucky chairs, on the back wall beneath group join signs. Don't forget to check those lucky chairs for your initial on your way past, since no group is needed and you can win a wide variety of prizes just for being in the right place at the right time.


The color of this Blue Floral Carol Dress reminded me of the deep ocean, and I couldn't help but notice that the style is rather curvy, okay downright busty ;) That is not a complaint by the way! The dress is one of two gifts being offered for the Fitmesh Fanatics group, which is free to join. Our gift includes standard sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions, and I so enjoy that lacing of the back.


The other Fitmesh Fanatics group gift at Sweet E's is actually found on the floor near the corner, a special 15000 members gift called Sweet E's Boho Skirt with Flare Crop. Once again I am digging that turquoise, a very flattering color for redheads as my avi is most of the time. The top is provided in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, while the skirt comes in Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes. This looks ideal for those early autumn days when it is still warm but sometimes breezy, or cools down at night, so the long skirt comes in handy.


If you encounter a particularly hot day, or visit somewhere in SL where it is sunny, you can be well prepared by wearing your MGSN (Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News) Group tag and claiming this Sweet E's Cream Pattern Charlize Bikini. It is actually one piece that looks like two, and includes sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. It sure sounds like just about any size or body can wear this fun fringed style.


If your avatar is still sporting a tan like mine is, this gift for the Omega Gifts group will look amazing on you. It's called Sweet E's Silk Butterfly Top and White Jeans, and inside this gift you will find the clothing in system layers as well as EVE, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP appliers. Also tucked into the folder are the ladies style glasses in a lovely matching pink, and the cuffs you see for the jeans. All in all, a sassy casual look for relaxing or exploring in SL.


One last look of the evening, this is Sweet E's Pink Floral Ginny dress, your free gift with your SLFO group tag active. The flowers on this dress are similar to the very first photo's pattern, something I didn't notice right away because of the other colors and the dress styles being so different. This is one of those dresses that will flatter any size and really accentuate our curves, whether they are subtle or generous. I am thinking a simple pair of sandals and a favorite necklace to complete this look, or maybe a set of bangles and earrings. 

Hair note of the night: Dawn's lack of self-control strikes again! That means that Truth Hair released a beautiful new style at Uber, and I was able to get into the cam shopping sim within the first couple of hours of its opening, so please meet the versatile Apple hair. She comes in the usual packs of colors, from which I chose the Redhead set, and includes a Stylist HUD with an impressive range of options. Wear your hair long and flowing in the back with either side in front or behind each shoulder, or up in the twisty topknot, with various bangs and wisps to choose from. I was hooked from the first glimpse of the Flickr photo, but wisely tried on the demo (which was sent to the VIP group) and fell even further in love. 

I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Le'La Body Art

Hiya everyone! Tonight I will be showing you some more Le'La group gifts (just $10L to join their group) but this post is not about their lovely clothing; tonight I am revealing some tattoos you can find among their dozens of gifts. It is a pleasure to be able to experiment in SL with various body art styles, since in RL they are much more expensive, painful, and permanent. I am always on the lookout for ways to express ourselves in Second Life, and I think that tattoos can provide a glimpse of our personality or the one we create for our avatars. I checked the Marketplace for a way to cover just enough of myself to show you the tats without showing too much else, and found a bra and panties set from Aero Designer that fit the bill. 


Our first look is the Le'La Laura Tattoo, which includes two versions (note the differences on the legs and midriff between the left and right images above) in system layers plus appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. The design is really intriguing, and with coverage on the upper and lower body the tattoos will peek out from a wide range of clothing styles and lengths. 


My pretty swarm of butterflies here is our gift called Le'La Butterfly Tattoo, an eye-catching design from the nape of the neck down to the left hip, and across the belly down to the left thigh. It is provided in system layers as well as Omega and Slink appliers. 


If you are looking for more of a powerful magical creature to adorn yourself with, how about the Le'La Dragons Tattoo gift? When you wear the system layer or use the Omega or Slink applier, a bold dragon above a tribal pattern will appear on your back, while twin dragons are mirrored on each side of your belly and on each hip. There are also designs on the front of each thigh as well as a floral swirl above the belly dragons, so lots of terrific details to enjoy.


Music is an integral part of most of our lives, and a captivating way to display that is with your choice of body art. This gift called Le'La-Musical Tattoo will wrap you in notes and symbols that reflect your interest in the wide world of music, perhaps sparking a conversation with someone who will want to know more about what genre or artists appeal to you. Included are system layers along with Omega and Slink applier HUDs, so choose your body and let the music play.


Please give this one a click so you can see the amazing details on this gift, Le'La-Reki Tattoo. It includes system layers & Omega and Slink appliers, so whatever your body preference is, chances are you can enjoy this beauty. I first noticed the bold flowers on the arms, then the shark and sun on the back...what aspects catch your eye first? The bra and panties are a free gift found on the marketplace from Aero Designer, who provide system layers as well as Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya appliers. The pretty purple pattern drew me to it, especially since the tattoos are all in black ink only so the color would not clash with anything. The monochrome look of the tattoos just shows how important good shading is, none of these look flat or less detailed for not being multicolored. They are impressive artwork that I am proud to share.

Today was a good one, and tomorrow promises to be extra busy since I have extra traveling to do. We are celebrating two birthdays, my dad and my grandmother (mom's mom, so my dad shares his birthday with his mother-in-law not his mom). Several times throughout the past year, we were not sure that my grandma was going to reach her 91st birthday, so it is with great pleasure that I will be gently hugging her and wishing her continued recovery. She is a remarkable woman, and wow I'm getting really emotional already. Okay, so if there is no blog post tomorrow night, it just means that I exhausted myself and ran out of time, but will be back as soon as possible with more treats to share. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Le'La Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some more of the dozens of group gifts from Le'La to show you, and their group is only $10L to join so it is quite an opportunity. The group tag also gives you access to several lucky boards in the courtyard in the middle of their various store buildings, so that is an extra reward for your small joining fee. Well, let's take a look at tonight's treats!


This fun jumpsuit is the {Le'La} Valea Gift, which is provided in standard fitmesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Belleza Isis, Belleza Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The white trim, tan belt, and USA flag pockets are among the eye-catching details that make this a unique look.


Another casual find among our generous group gifts is this {Le'La} Yeliz Outfit, a tank top and crimson leggings each in standard fitmesh sizes along with Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique versions. The comic strip type pattern made me smile, and the color of the pants really brings out the red in the shirt.


I would call this outfit dressy-casual, and I love that it includes perfectly matching shoes to complete the look from head to toe. This is {Le'La} Sabrina Outfit #2, which starts with the wrap style blouse with darker ruffle and belt/bow and even an attached flower, in standard sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The matching leggings are in standard sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, while the shoes come in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High sizes. 


Our next group gift is called {Le'La} Kayla Gift, and you too can claim some pretty girl swag :) It includes fitmesh standard sizing plus Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizes, so most shapes and bodies can enjoy this fun belted look. 


One last look for the evening, this is {Le'La} Korasia Dress gift, whose denim texture almost reminds me of tweed. Don't those sunshine yellow buttons and bows just brighten the feeling of this sweet dress? It comes in several fitmesh sizes: standard, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP. There are times I just want to hold onto a summer feeling, something that is much easier to do in SL than RL, so you just might see me bopping around the grid in December wearing this terrific gift :) 

I have a skin note tonight, as I look like I have been on a tropical vacation compared to my usual skintone. The reason is that I could not resist the current group offer from 7 Deadly s{K}ins, this gorgeous skin called ROOD which is just $100L for group members and only in their Pineapple skin tone. I usually stick to apricot or sand, occasionally as pale as cotton candy, but I loved the brows and subtle makeup on this so much. It has a freckled version which I am wearing, and includes a shape for one of the many Bento heads out there (sorry, I am blanking on which) but the offer is also for AK group members so I believe it is one of the AK heads. There are two signs (one for each group) behind the Mini/Midnight Mania boards, next to where the event skins are displayed. The demo is there in a small pump bottle so you can try it before you buy it, a policy I firmly believe in for anything in SL. To be honest, I stepped aside into the corner right there and tried it on just a few meters away, making sure I wasn't in anyone's way of course, and was able to know I wanted to purchase it immediately. Love at first sight!

Busy weekend ahead, and I hope it's a promising one for all of you with something extra fun or relaxing, whatever you need right now. Many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Generous Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I visited a store called Le'La who had many gifts out for several different groups, including their own store group ($10L fee to join), and that I would be showing you some of their store group gifts in the future. Well it seems the future has arrived, and I am pleased to present you with a sweet sampling of their very generous rewards for joining their group. Really, $10L is a small price to pay for a group that offers so many terrific gifts to its members so I didn't hesitate. Speaking of small prices, I also have some gorgeous nails to share from LIVIA at the TWE12VE event, a $12L gift that made me feel sparkly and cheerful.


This striking dress is the {Le'La} Kanys Dress, a delightfully detailed sheath with an open midriff and exquisite edging. It includes sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a standard fitted version, so this should suit just about any body in style.


Maybe you are more in the mood for something more along the lines of cute daytime wear, how about this lovely {Le'La} Beatrix Gift? It has a crisp white collar and matching bowed belt, on a sleeveless dress in shades of blue and purple with a pattern reminiscent of snowflakes or a quilt design. Since I am not ready for winter at all, we'll go with quilt or maybe stained glass ;) The dress is included in 8 fitmesh sizes: standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. 


Another beauty in blue is our {Le'La} Dalya Dress Gift, which is provided in standard fitmesh sizes along with Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The belt and the buttons on the top provide a nice color contrast, and the strapless style makes this ruffly skirt look even more flirty.


Speaking of flirty, this is yet another group gift which is called {Le'La} Miranda Outfit. The top and shorts are each included in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. I do appreciate a nice off-the-shoulder style, and these tiny shorts will help you celebrate the final warm days of the year if you are in the same hemisphere as I am, or help bring in the warmer days in the opposite hemisphere. These pieces are quite versatile, so you can always do some mixing and matching with the rest of your inventory as well.


Last but certainly not least, let's take a closer look at these dazzling nails from LIVIA. They are called LIVIA::Stardust Nails and can be found at TWE12VE, which opens on the 12th of each month and wraps up on the 30th so you have another week to stop by. This is their $12L gift for this round, with 3 styles on a HUD that is compatible with Slink, Maitreya, Omega, Tuty, and Vista. As you can see, the three designs are awash in soft pink and blue, one with sparkles and another tipped in bold glitter, with yet another displaying a fun shooting star design. I think it will look terrific with a simple pair of jeans and maybe a pink t-shirt, or it can liven up a simple dark dress. The link in the credits is your limo directly to the event, and their mainstore link is in my right side bar as always.

Tomorrow's post will bring more group gifts from Le'La, since there are plenty left to share, and I am looking forward to the beginning of another busy but interesting weekend. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
