Finding Autumn Leaves

Hiya everyone! Tonight we are exploring more of the SLFO Hunt, and as you can tell from the title we are looking for orange autumn leaves. These are free gifts for all who locate them, and you don't want to miss out on prizes of such high quality! Many generous designers are in our hunt path, and the signs say the hunt ends on the 18th but the website says the 25th. I am not sure which is correct, so I urge you to get started if you haven't already. Their website is a handy source of locations, hints, and information on which stores should be skipped. The prizes I will show you tonight range from quite casual to very elegant, to highlight that in this hunt you are sure to find something for any occasion.


My first look is our prize from [Sexy Princess] called Corfu Top & Skirt. It has such fun straps and a zipper on the back of the top, and a rich texture on both pieces. The gift includes standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions.


[Aleutia] has a lovely gift hiding in their leaf, called Logan - Meerkat. It is a silky dress and an infinity scarf, each in a Maitreya size, with a HUD that lets you pick from 10 different textures for the scarf. The cutouts on the upper arms are a fun contrast to the long sleeves and warmth of the added scarf, and since the dress and scarf are separate pieces you can wear them together or apart.


I can't decide if this is more of a maroon or a burgundy, but either way it is certainly a beautiful gift from Just Ordinary. It is called Susan Dress RR, and comes in 5 standard sizes plus 5 fitted standard, along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The lace of the top is very sheer, so depending where you decide to wear it, you may wish to layer some pasties beneath.


Here we have another terrific prize with colors in the crimson family, this time courtesy of A&J Creations. Their Paulina Dress Mod A comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 classic, 5 fitted, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and has such terrific details as a daring side slit, lacy trim, and gathered satin. 


My final look of the evening is a casual delight, the prize from StormCrow Design's. The crop sweater and jeans are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with the ankle boots in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High versions. There is even a HUD included for the sweater that lets us choose from 10 heathered shades, two of which you can see above. This is such a comfy looking outfit, yet subtly flirty with the bare belly and high heels of the boots. 

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...but it's not really time for Christmas carols yet. our snow was followed by sleet that added up to dangerously icy road conditions, and my little neighborhood alone had at least a dozen accidents within an hour. That is the aspect of winter that scares me, since people either forget to use the right tires or forget how to drive. I hope you're all having a safe and warm day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Dazzle with SLFO

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some special selections from the November round of DAZZLE, whose theme this month is Rain or Shine. The designers were able to let their imaginations run wild with that inspiration, and I will be showing you offers from two of those talented creators in this post. I also have more SLFO Hunt prizes for you to see, and all you'll need to do is find the orange leaf in each store to claim these gifts. Lots to see, so let's get started!


This fantastic sweater dress and matching thigh boots make up the Denisa Outfit from {Le'La}, which you can find at DAZZLE this month for just $99L. The dress comes in sizes for standard, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, while the boots are provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The outfit also includes a HUD that lets you choose from 10 colors for each, dress and boots, so you can mix or match for extra versatility. Speaking of versatility, the DAZZLE offers from Beloved Jewelry are functional as well as beautiful. The Galenia Choker and Galenia Earrings shown here are just two of several selections this month, and are only $50L each. Give any one of them a click, and you'll see a menu that lets you pick from 33 gems and 33 accent beads, plus 12 metals. These are unrigged so you can even edit them to fit if you need to. These can be matched to just about any clothing you can think of, with a delicate design that complements without overwhelming. The choker has three metal strands with beads on the center one, and a small strand dangles down the back at its closure with a few more sparkling gems.


I am still wearing the choker and earrings from Beloved Jewelry here, this time with the SLFO hunt prize from 1 Hundred called Weekend Romper Peach. The wrap style and chevron texture are so fun! This outfit comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, to comfortably fit most popular mesh bodies. 


Hilly Haalan has several different gifts inside their SLFO leaf, so let's start with a look at their [hh] Amanda Dress. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Physique, and a fitted version, with a HUD that offers an impressive 50 different textures. The style reminds me of an ice skating dress, a unique look that is sure to turn heads.


If you'll be at an outdoor venue, maybe you would rather choose to wear their prize called [hh] Mira Trenchcoat Outfit. It consists of the coat in 4 colors, each in standard mesh sizes, and matching stiletto ankle boots for Slink High feet. The trench coats are awash in shiny details of buttons and buckles, which look lovely against the Blue, Olive, Beige, or Black versions. The classic black boots are an ideal neutral to go well with each.


For my final look of the evening, it's another of the Hilly Haalan gifts inside that same leaf, this one called [hh] Naomi Mini Dress Outfit. In addition to the dress in several mesh sizes (standard S, standard L, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique) with 15 textures via HUD, there are plenty of accessories included. The clutch has a built in pose as seen on the left, but I removed it on the right so you could see the bracelet for that wrist more easily. The arm cuff on my left arm, necklace, earrings, and shoes for Slink high are also part of the outfit, and they really complete it nicely.

It was a whirlwind of a day, but now I get to relax Thursday instead so it works out well. It will be nice to be inside, dry and warm, while the snow and sleet swirl around outside. It doesn't seem like we're getting much accumulation (unlike my weather-obsessed family member who freaked out a few days ago about it initially claimed) but it will be unpleasant for anyone who has to drive in it. I hope you're all having a lovely and cozy day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Counting Stars

Hiya everyone! Tonight's post holds another handful of SLFO Hunt prizes, the marvelous free gridwide hunt organized by the SL Frees & Offers group. We are looking for an orange leaf, which is a lovely symbol of autumn, and there are hints as well as landmarks on their website. You will also find details about which stores are not ready yet or dropped out, so you'll need to skip those, making it very useful to have the website handy when you are hunting. 


First we have a lovely pair of prizes, starting with the zOOm - Bad Bunny Sweater. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with rabbit eared skull and crossbones over a silver polka dot pattern. I decided to pair it with the versatile Alien Gizmo's Clarice Skirt Black&White, a micro mini skirt with plenty of details. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with a HUD that lets you choose from 3 material colors, 3 strap colors, 3 belt colors, and 4 metals. 


LsR Moda has a flirty gift for us, their Sexy Salma Dress Gift Hunt. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, and Hourglass, with fun peekaboo cutout and animal print. Just find that hidden fall leaf and it's all yours to enjoy.


Another prize you won't want to miss is the {ViSion} Kim Set in Red. It consists of the bra, panties, and chain seen here, each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The ruffles on the bra are very flattering, and such a perfect detail to have a ruby dangling from the end of the golden chain. 


I feel like this vibrant dress would be ideal for a hot date or a visit to a new nightclub, somewhere you want to turn heads. It is the prize from TRS Designs called Beach Dress Happy SLFO Hunt Gift, and includes eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The satin and sequins made me think of dancing, maybe salsa music.


My final look of the evening is from Petry Model, called OUTFIT SRBE. The top, skirt, and even the shoes are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The blouse is delightfully asymmetrical, and the peplum skirt is a darker shade of satin that is equally appealing.

For some reason my week has become all about rearranging plans, and it is not exactly my idea of fun. My evening cooking to freeze for next week was moved earlier in the day, which means less sleep so I am fairly groggy, and there is a snow/sleet storm headed here Thursday so I moved an appointment from then to tomorrow. Now I'm not sure what to expect for the rest of the week, but I'm sure it will be chaotic somehow. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

SLF&O Hunt Prizes

Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to tell you about another free gridwide hunt currently taking place, the SLFO Hunt which is organized by the SL Frees & Offers group. They have such an impressive list of designers taking part, and each has an orange autumn leaf hiding in their store for us to find. The hints and landmarks are on their website, which I've found to be slightly more accurate than the landmarks inside the prize folders, so if you get lost be sure to peek at the site to make sure you're still on the path correctly. The prizes are fantastic, as you'll see for yourself if you find them all by the 25th of November when the hunt wraps up.


Our first stop is Entice, where you can claim their Shine On Top & Skirt - Blue. Each piece comes in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya, and this is an original mesh creation by Entice so you won't see it anywhere else. The color of the fleur-de-lis pattern on the skirt is a perfect match for the bare shouldered top, so pretty!


This is such a cute layered outfit for a chilly day, and it's our prize from Giz Seorn. It is included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a simple dress beneath a plaid jacket and a hoodie. I'm not finished this hunt path, so you just might run into me wearing this exact outfit while I find more leaves.


**ArisArisB&W is offering this flirty Alus05 Rush Jumpsuit as their free prize, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is also a HUD included with 4 texture choices, two of which can be seen above. The plunging neckline looks great with all of the texture possibilities.


Next we have the female prize from [JUSTICE] called ELISA DRESS, which is one of two you can find inside their leaf (the other is a male prize). It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is a very useful HUD that offers 42 colors for the strings lacing the sides together, 42 for the panties beneath, and 6 metal options. Thanks to the HUD, this is a very sexy look with a generous side of versatility.


For my final look of the evening, I am enjoying the prize from [WellMade] called Davina Outfit. It is a single mesh piece with the appearance of a separate top and skirt, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The included HUD offers both skirt colors seen above, both bold and playful choices.

I hope you're all having a glorious day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Free Dove with ROA

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have another Free Dove mini hunt to share with you, this time from ROA and we are looking for plates of donuts hiding in the Free Dove building. They look tasty, but are treats of a different kind because they hold free outfits! You can claim them by wearing your Free Dove group tag, it's as simple as that. ROA, like all the designers you can find at Free Dove, offers high quality gifts for visitors to get an idea of their style and talent. I have always been grateful for this opportunity, and find that the monthly mini hunts add to the fun :) Besides, who doesn't enjoy donuts that have no sugar, gluten, or calories?


First we have the lovely ROA Tantalyzing Strap Dress, in a peachy pink shade with elegant floral pattern. It comes in several mesh sizes to fit most of us: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, 5 classic 'busty', Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. I am so intrigued by those intricate straps in the back, and it is such a flattering look.


Next we have the rainbow hued ROA Color Me Crazy Dress, which comes in standard mesh sizes with an attached slender gold belt. The handkerchief hem is especially pretty with the vibrant stripes, reminding me of a silk scarf fluttering in a gentle breeze. 


This is the ROA Days Gone By Dress prize, an eye-catching gown in red with varying white designs to give a unique touch. It is included in fitmesh standard sizes along with Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. I have a secret tip to share with you - this was actually tucked inside prize #3, but it is prize #4. I discovered that while unpacking, so if you don't find a prize marked #4 in the Free Dove building, don't worry as long as you found the third one :)


Time to get flirty, with the ROA Chained Together dress and shoes! The dress is included in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, while the perfectly matched shoes come in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High versions. I was drawn to the texturing, how the material looks like a solid metallic at first glance but as you admire it, you start to see speckles and various colors.


My final look of the evening is a fine choice for a cozy night in with someone special, when you just want to cuddle by a fireplace or hang out with some SL animal pals...I guess I just accidentally revealed a favorite way of spending time with Xan :) The romantic outfit is the ROA Wrapped in you BF's Shirt, but unlike your typical boyfriend's shirt, it has built in panties. The set comes in standard mesh sizes, with richly striped fabric in two complementary colors.

My day was spent recuperating from my busy Saturday, which I greatly enjoyed :) I spent time with someone I hadn't seen in about a year, which is way too long for best friends to be apart without getting to hug each other. She promised we'll see each other in January, as long as neither of us gets bombarded with blizzards again like last winter. She lives in the mountains, so she actually has had several minor snowfalls already this season that I have been lucky to avoid. I pushed myself, did a lot more than usual, and have been struggling with sleep lately so I am fairly tired but still really happy from the visit. I hope you all had a beautiful weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Weekend Womenstuff Hunting

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more treats from the Womenstuff Hunt 2018 to share, which are hidden in participating stores in red and white t-shirts for either $0L or $1L. The sizes of the shirts vary, but the color and shoe pattern on them are consistent through the hunt path. There are hints and landmarks on the hunt's website, and information about any stores that have moved or dropped out, so it's helpful to have it open if possible. Tonight's looks are fairly casual, so if any of your weekend plans include relaxing in SL, I hope you get a chance to do a little shirt-hunting first so you can treat yourself to a few new outfits.


First we have the [WellMade] Nayra Outfit, the free gift hiding inside their t-shirt. The top and pants each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes, with a HUD for the top that offers 2 color choices. Two great ways to wear this comfy looking outfit!


Next we visit Boho Valkyrja, where we can claim their free gift called BV Mia Dress. It includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya, with a HUD that offers 3 texture choices. I am showing you two of those choices above, and the third will be a surprise when you try it out ;) The style is a simple tank with a short, full skirt, well suited for the vivid colors we can choose from.


It is so chilly tonight that this gift has extra appeal to me. It is the free prize from Maci called Belted Fur Jacket, and there are sizes provided for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. Each size comes in two versions, with and without an auto-hide script for your mesh body. I love how soft and fuzzy it appears!


WinTeRwooD Designs is offering this flirty Denim Autumn Top as their $1L hunt prize, and it looks as good from the back as it does from the front. It comes in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. There is also a HUD included that offers 10 texture options, two of which you can see in my photo. There are different shades of denim, various designs or solids for the front, and even some different bow colors for the back. If your autumn is on the warm side, or you're looking to turn up the heat on it, this is the prize for you.


My final look of the evening is the free prize from Trinite, their Dot Top which has a handy HUD to change from solid to sheer. I chose to employ a modesty flower while I was cropping these in Photoshop, so that white flower on the right is not part of the top but something I added afterwards. The top is included in sizes for eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. 

The weekend is here, and it is time for me to get busy! Because of so many plans for tomorrow, I won't be able to blog in the evening (no chance to get photos/notes taken during the day) but I will be back Sunday in full swing. It's all positive stuff happening, just keeping me too occupied to be online enough for a quality post. So I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Chaotic and Entice

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to share part two of the Free Dove mini hunt by {Chaotic}, with the 4 doves (white and gold ornaments) that are hiding at the Chaotic mainstore. They are all free, you just need to have your Free Dove group tag active when you click them. These prizes are all casual and cool, just right for gridwide hunting or visiting a club. In that casual vein, I also have some cozy selections from Entice that you can find at the Designer Showcase this round, that you can combine into an ideal outfit for a chilly evening.


My first look is the hunt prize called {Chaotic} Hazel {V2} and is the full outfit you see here. The fringe jacket with shirt built in beneath is included in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The jeans are provided as a system layer and an Omega applier, and our open toed boots come in a Slink High size. Everything is delightfully detailed, and I especially like the bright golden accents on the boots.


I can't seem to resist calling this look pretty in pink! Its real name is {Chaotic} Lea, and it consists of the sweater and jeans each in fitmesh standard sizes plus versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The matching laced-up heels come in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High fits. 


The next prize is {Chaotic} Marcy, another full outfit that you can claim for free with your Free Dove group tag. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, while the jeans/laced high boots combo is sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is even an Omega applier included for the sexy bra top to wear beneath the jacket, although you can certainly pick a different top if you don't have a compatible mesh body or just crave variety.


I kept the top layer from the prior gift on to show you this gift, but removed the jacket so you could see the high waisted nature of these jeans better. They are called {Chaotic} Sexy Jean Capris, and inside the gift you'll find fitmesh standard sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. There is a color HUD provided that has 8 denim choices for you, blues and even a dark charcoal, all with the same distressed sections on the front and the buttons at the waist and each cuff. I am certainly a fan of capris, and these particularly versatile with the color options.


Time to visit the Entice display at Designer Showcase, where we can stock up on seasonal bargains. Their tempting trio of offers can all be seen here: Entice Blue Jeans Sweater, Blue Jeans, and Blue Jeans Scarf Fatpack. The scarf is only available as a fatpack, 16 colors via HUD, and is on sale for just $149L. The jeans and the sweater are each $99L per individual color with 8 to choose from, or you can purchase either fatpack for $299L and get 10 colors (2 exclusive bonus colors) via HUD. As usual, I suggest the fatpack if you are a fan of those HUDs like me, or just enjoy having plenty of shades to choose from. I must apologize for not changing the color of the sweater from one photo to the other, I really did mean to show you another of the 10 choices but I seem to have saved the wrong screenshot image. The jeans have great back pockets, neither too small nor too large, and the floral design is on the front only. The sweater has a subtle V neck, and can be worn without the scarf if you wish. As usual, the mainstore of Entice is linked in my right hand side column, and the link in the ending credits will bring you directly to the event.

I think the Chaotic store name jinxed me to a chaotic day, LOL! Honestly it was pretty weird here, I was preparing to take these photos this morning when I lost internet. They love to do maintenance the exact time I am online, it's uncanny how consistent that is. I waited about an hour and got back in, feeling rather frazzled, to take photos of these great outfits and I hope I did them any justice :) My acupuncture appointment was delayed and not as relaxing as normal, too much bustle in the usually quiet building I guess. Poor guy took a week off and came back to overbooked chaos. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Chaotic at Free Dove

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit the Free Dove to explore one of their monthly mini hunts, this one being by {Chaotic}. We are looking for white and gold doves that resemble stained glass ornaments, and there are 6 at Free Dove with the remaining 4 at Chaotic's mainstore. All are free, you just need your Free Dove group tag active to claim them. I always enjoy these mini hunts, and sure hope you do too! I also have an exclusive selection from DAZZLE to show you, by AvaGirl at the Rain or Shine themed November round. Lots to see and appreciate tonight.


The first prize we see tonight is called {Chaotic} Autum {V2}, a delightful and practical layered look for the season. The jacket is provided in fitmesh standard sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, while the top and low rise jeans are in system layers along with an Omega applier. The boots come in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High sizes. I so enjoy versatile outfits like this, with options of how to wear them for various moods.


Speaking of versatility, this next prize has plenty of it too :) This is the {Chaotic} Robin outfit, whose jacket comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions, with a HUD offering 10 colors. There are Omega appliers in black and white for our leggings, and even matching boots that will work with (or without, as I tend to hide my feet to wear boots) any mesh feet.


In this look, you get to see two of the gifts, starting with the {Chaotic} Erin {Patterns} jacket. It is provided in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with a HUD that lets you choose from several colors. I am wearing it with the prize called Physco Clothes Sexy Biker Jeans, which was their previous store name before rebranding as Chaotic. The jeans are in system layers along with a HUD that is compatible with Lolas, Phatazz, Ghetto, Banned, Lena, and Omega. When I applied the Omega, I wound up wearing a green t-shirt too, but I removed it to show precisely what the jacket reveals and covers. 


Another casually fun outfit can be found by claiming the prize called {Chaotic} Amber, with sweater, pants, tank top, boots, and necklace seen here. The sweater that is playfully sliding down one shoulder includes a 13 color HUD and comes in plenty of mesh sizes: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The pants and under shirt are on an Omega applier, and I hid my mesh feet to wear with the boots. 


My final look of the evening is the AvaGirl - Rayne outfit, which you will find only at DAZZLE until November 25th. This terrific look includes the jacket, jeans, and top, each in sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. There is also a handy HUD that lets you choose from 3 denim textures for the jacket and jeans (separately), and 20 hues for the top beneath the jacket. There are so many possibilities with this HUD, so it is a bargain of an exclusive at $249L. Be sure to peek at the other AvaGirl offerings at DAZZLE too, there is a cute umbrella for a single linden among them.

I'm not really sure what to say about my day...it wasn't bad, but I am not quite feeling my best, so I'm not exactly my usual cheerful self. Tomorrow's acupuncture session should help, then I'll have a few busy days including a visit with my best friend of 25+ years on Saturday :) I am really looking forward to that, since I haven't seen her in ages and miss her. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
