Untamed Youth at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a look at the newest Sn@tch Fish 4 This set, called Untamed Youth. It is inspired by classic bombshell looks from the 50s, so if you are craving something retro and sexy, grab a 7 Seas fishing rod and head for the store. If you don't already have one, you can purchase a rod there at Sn@tch or even on the marketplace which is convenient for gift giving. Speaking of gifts, all the pieces of the set are transferable so you can swap your duplicates with friends to complete the whole set even faster. What can you find in the 21 bags to be caught? Well there are 7 colors of the blouse, in system layers and an Omega applier. Helpful hint: be sure to unpack the system layer boxes for each color even if you wear a mesh body, because the prim sleeves are inside there too. There is also a high waisted fitmesh skirt with built in belt, 7 colors each in sizes for S, M, L, Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous. There is also a very Marilyn Monroe style of hair in three colors, each in rigged and unrigged (built in resize menu) versions, and a great pair of shoes that come in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Mid. So much to appreciate in this set!


This color of hair in particular highlights the Marilyn resemblance, doesn't it? It's called Sn@tch Bombshell Hair in Platinum, and its wavy bob style looks so flirty with this outfit. My tops are the Sn@tch Dorothy Gingham Top, in Red on the left and Seafoam on the right. The skirts are Sn@tch Loren Split Skirt in Red on the left, Seafoam on the right. The tops have a sweet row of lace on the bottom hem, and the skirts have that playful slit on the left thigh.


As you can see here, the Bombshell Hair looks wonderful in Black too! I also really enjoyed wearing the Dorothy Gingham Top in Baby Blue and the Loren Split Skirt in a matching Blue. I added the sleeves from the bag with the system layers, but I did use the Omega applier on my Maitreya body for this shirt. 


It is easy to feel pretty in pink when I changed into the top and skirt of that very color, and the black hair looks lovely with this shade too. I have also added the Sn@tch Untamed Platform Shoes in Slink Mid, which feature open toes, stacked heels, and slender ankle straps. 


For this look I switched to the Bombshell Hair in Red, a rich auburn tone that suits the bouncy curls so well. The top and skirt can each be seen in yellow here, a fun springtime shade that makes me think of sunshine.


My final look shows off the Dorothy Gingham Top in Black, which is versatile enough to wear with any of the skirt colors, like the Loren Split Skirt in Aqua seen here. The fishing set also includes a black skirt and an aqua top, so you can wear these mixed and matched however you choose. 

You may have looked at these photos and realized that I look very different, well I did something I'd been considering for quite some time now. I invested in another mesh head, the Genus Project Classic. I tweaked the shape some to my liking, and will do so again a few times before settling on the final "me". Since I enjoy variety, I expect I will be switching between this head and the [GA.EG] Barbara I usually wear. I need to get used to the nuances of this head's general HUD and AO, just like anything else, but so far I am very pleased with it. I am wearing the mesh eyes that came with it, and got the Omega installer which worked for all its components, so I was able to use an Omega eye applier that came with the system eyes I've been wearing. They are a gift found at Free Dove, so you can claim those with your free group tag and pick from 3 colors. 

My day was busy but fun, which seems like something I say about most Saturdays. One of the bakers at the local farmers market was serving breakfasts, and I got a veggie omelet with asparagus, spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, feta, and parmesan. I feel like I'm forgetting a couple ingredients there, but you get the idea :) Most weeks there is something special offered like that, in addition to all the pre-prepped meals we can get something hot and custom ordered. It is my favorite place to be each week. I hope you're all having a marvelous weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Seductive Weekend Looks

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am getting a very late start so I'll keep things brief, at least brief for me ;) We will be exploring The Wash Cart Sale as we have been for the past handful of posts, because they are a fantastic place to find bargains for the whole family. You have well over a week left to visit. I also will be sharing some group gifts you can find at Pink Pearl Design, but each for a different free group. I couldn't help but notice that a lot of these outfits are really flirty, so that inspired my post title.


First we visit the (kuid) cart at The Wash, where you can find such offers as the cropped sweatshirt I am wearing on the left called (kuid) Tillie Hoodie - Lazy. It is just $25L and comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The clever quip on the front is "I am not lazy, I am physically conservative". On the right I am enjoying the (kuid) Ava Outfit - Multi Floral, one of the awesome $10L selections. The top, skirt, and coochy cover (you can't see it, but it is under there, LOL) are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. To visit the (kuid) mainstore please click here, and the link in the ending credits will bring you directly to their cart.


Tiar has a fun range of offers on their cart, including this delightfully sheer Yuna dress. It is included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with a HUD that lets you choose from 5 color/textures. You can find the Tiar mainstore link here, and the cart's direct link in my ending credits.


Time to head over to Pink Pearl Design, where you can activate the MGSN group tag (free to join) and claim this playful [PPD] Dont Forget Me outfit. The top and panties each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and there is a HUD included that lets you choose from 8 colors for each. You can mix them like I did on the right, or match like on the left, whatever appeals to your mood.


This beautiful bodysuit is the group gift for the SLFO group, called [PPD] Im What You Need - Pastels. The gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, plus a HUD with lots of choices - 8 shades with matching lace and heart cutouts, the same 8 colors but with white lace/cutouts, and a solid white version. Hearts make me smile, and this sexy style can help you put a smile on someone else's face too.


My final look of the evening is the Stay Forever - Dark Nights gift for the Fitmesh Fanatics group, which is also free to join. The nightie and panties are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, with a HUD that offers 6 colors for each. These are all deep shades as you can guess from the name of this set, which make this look particularly sophisticated.

Whew, what a day! I skipped blogging yesterday after an eye doctor appointment that left me blurry in one eye (dilated) but it turned out really well. My eye is healing and now we just have to be aware that the other eye will probably do the same crazy thing eventually. Today I got my wrist taken care of, one of the bones was out of place...did you know there are 8 different bones in the wrist? I didn't until one of them had to be realigned earlier, which did not tickle. I'm still in a wrist brace, which makes typing awkward, but it already feels somewhat better. The late start was actually from weird chemical fumes in my home, and the worry that something was leaking somewhere. It smelled like nail polish remover, which is not what you want to be breathing in for several hours...instant headache. Tomorrow is another busy day, but Sunday I will finally get to unwind. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

One Particular Harbour

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more wonderful picks from The Wash Cart Sale to show you, from their Spring has Sprung round which is open until the 10th of April. So there is still plenty of time to shop the $10L, $25L, and $50L offers at each cart, with something for just about everyone. I am always pleased with the variety there, from longtime favorite designers along side ones who are new to me. There are also a few more Kiyomizu Hunt prizes for you to see in tonight's post, just find those well hidden ninja kitties and claim some terrific free prizes. As for tonight's post title, well I am simply in a Jimmy Buffett mood because the calendar says spring but the weather hasn't quite gotten the memo yet. Some tropical tunes seemed in order :)


First stop tonight is the Luziefee cart at The Wash, where you could choose the lovely Neah Blue dress I am wearing on the left for just $20, or the flirty Positano 3 as seen on the right above for a mere $10L. Each of these is provided in 5 standard mesh sizes, and there are other colors available on the cart for the same great prices. The link in the ending credits will bring you directly to their cart, and you can visit the Luziefee mainstore by clicking here.


ML Fashion is also ready to help you with your spring and summer wardrobe, with plenty of treats waiting on their cart. On the left I am enjoying their Ruffle Bikini Flowers, on sale for $25L. The top and bottom each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes, and there is a HUD included with 4 different floral textures for each. If you are drawn to the dress I'm wearing on the right, I have good news for you - it is a free gift on the cart! It's called Gift Lily Flower Dress Black, and is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. To visit their mainstore please click here, and the link in the ending credits is your limo directly to the cart.


Over on the Kiyomizu hunt path, we have a lovely gift from [satus Inc] called Hazel Tucked Top & Mini Skirt Blue. It has versions A and B (navy and charcoal skirt colors) each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.


White Shell has different locations with ninja cats waiting for us, one of which holds this Dress Hunt Prize #1 for free. It comes in a single mesh size, and I was able to adjust my Maitreya body with the alpha sections on its HUD to make this work perfectly. The texture has a very pretty layer of lace atop a bright magenta.


My final look of the evening is our prize from ::*Ran*:: called 19-09 KIYOMIZU Street pants & top. Each piece is included in sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous. The checkerboard pattern makes me think of a racetrack and their flag, and the floral image down the sleeves and left leg put me in mind of chalk art or a reverse image of a tattoo. Such a fun casual outfit!

The next few days are shaping up to be extra busy for me, starting with tomorrow afternoon's eye doctor appointment to check on my vitreous detachment issue. I will probably be stuck with blurry vision from pupil dilation so I am not planning on blogging tomorrow night, but will be happy to be back to posting Friday :) Adulting can be a pain, but I will do my best. My wrist is a little better, still wearing the (awkward!) brace to protect it. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Spring has Sprung in Kiyomizu

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have the pleasure of showing you a few more selections from The Wash Cart Sale, where each cart has offers for $10L, $25L, and $50L for you to choose from. It is a wonderful place to find new clothing and home decor for a wide range of tastes, while being very budget-friendly. I am also showing you some Kiyomizu Hunt prizes, a longtime favorite seasonal free hunt that has us seeking ninja cats. Just go to the Kiyomizu Mall and check all the stores for cats in black costumes, then click a floating ghost above one of the sidewalks to get a personalized website that shows which ones you've found and where you still need to visit. 


My first looks come from the Emerald Couture cart at The Wash, where you can find several chic outfits at a mere $10L each. On the left I am wearing their EC Bailey Dress Lilac, whose dress with cute attached tie comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The matching pumps are included in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High fits. On the right you can see the flirty EC Dana Dress Flame, with standard mesh sizes along with Maitreya, Slink, and TMP versions for the dress with Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High sizes for the shoes. The link in the ending credits will bring you directly to their cart for these bargains, and you can also visit their mainstore by clicking here.


Another cart you don't want to miss is Sweet Willows, with a tantalizing variety of deals. On the left I'm wearing their (SW) Satin Outfit Purple, one of several colors at the cart for $10L apiece. The top and pants are each provided in Freya, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. On the right I left the pants on but switched into their free gift on their cart, the (SW) Fruit Striped Tops. This is the melon version, but the gift also includes blue, grape, and teal, all in Maitreya sizes. Their mainstore link can be found here, and the limo to their cart is in my ending credits :)


Shiorin's Mart has a revealing, fun swimsuit as their Kiyomizu Hunt prize, called =CS= One Piece Swimwear 018TC Japanese Pattern. It comes in sizes for Hourglass, Physique, and Maitreya mesh bodies, with a HUD that lets you pick from the two textures shown above. The neckline is a deep plunge, and you can see that the back is an itty bitty thong strap. Time to soak up some maximum sunshine!


This provocative look is the prize from SHOP KERO called Lacy Flare Dress. It is provided in fitmesh standard sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. There is also a HUD included that lets you tint the dress in 8 different colors, and there are sliders for alpha (opacity) and gloss. The more I look at this photo, the more I'm noticing just how sheer that lace really is, LOL!


My final look of the evening is our hunt prize from the MeltingDots Freebie Store, which incidentally is a great landmark to share with friends on a budget or anyone who is new to SL to help build their wardrobe and enjoy other gifts. This gift is called Cherry Dress, and comes in fitmesh standard sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. There is also a HUD with 8 pastel shades to choose from, delightful for spring.

It was a strange day, but I got my tooth taken care of so that was a positive. Unfortunately there is a negative, I somehow hurt my right wrist (mouse hand) which is making typing really tricky. No idea what happened, just suddenly realized I was feeling sharp pain if I held anything in my hand or tried to do anything with it. I don't think I can get to a doctor for it until Friday, so the next couple of days are going to be awkward online. My blog post schedule will depend on whether my wrist gets better, worse, or stays the same in the near future, since it's a complete mystery. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Wash and Kiyomizu Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight we take another trip to The Wash Cart Sale, where you can find selections marked down to $10L, $25L, or $50L each. There are lots of talented designers participating in the Spring has Sprung round (until April 10th) with offers that will help you get ready for a new season, both wardrobe and home decor. I also have some hunt prizes to share, from the Kiyomizu Spring 2019 Hunt. It starts at the Kiyomizu Mall, where my suggestion is to explore the stores there to find all the ninja cats you can, then click a floating ghost outside above the sidewalks. They will send you to a website that has all the locations and which you found/which you still need to locate. Some stores have them in their mainstores away from the mall, and I find it easiest to use the ghosts for personalized results.


Our first stop tonight is the Dream Factory cart, where you can find several $10L selections like the ~DF~Gown Katia red I am wearing on the left. It includes two standard fitted sizes (small and large) as well as for eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The style is lovely, with the bra and skirt connected by a sheer lace panel. On the right you can see one of their $25L outfits called ~DF~Outfit Susan3. This flirty look has the top in black or white lace each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes, the skirt in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions, and even the boots for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. You can visit the Dream Factory mainstore by clicking here, but to reach the cart sale with all these great offers please use the link in my ending credits.


Another exciting way to express yourself is with tattoos, and the InnerJoy Love Tattoos cart has several terrific choices at discounted prices. Here I am wearing their Worthy Life tattoo which is just $25L and includes a system layer plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega. The design starts with a tree whose roots have a heart shape inside, and birds flying above. The back has more of those silhouettes of a flock in flight, with "Live A Life Worth Living" in script down the spine. It is excellent advice and really attractive body art. Their mainstore link (they are on The Wash sim just like the cart sale) can be found here, and the link in the ending credits will bring you directly to their cart. I am also wearing a bra and panties here for modesty, and that would be the set that comes with the Maitreya body.


Over to the Kiyomizu Hunt, this pretty free prize is from M*Motion and is called C19 KYMZ Spring Gift. It is provided in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, and crafted with ruffled layers on the skirt, a gathered back, and even an attached belt that ties in the front with a cute bow. 


How cute is this dress? If you think it looks delicious too, be sure to find the hidden kitty at Magiclo so you can claim your ..:MC:.. OneshoulderMiniDress[Kiyomizu_H]. It comes in three standard sizes (XS, S, M) along with Maitreya and Slink versions, all with that layered look of a single shouldered sweater over a ruffly mini skirt. 


My final look of the evening is the prize from **milky-way, whose lucky board prizes appeared in yesterday's blog post. This is their *19-02 Two layers Dress sakura, with a delicate ombre of pink to white, and the playful pockets are a great detail. 

It was a decent day, until I went into the kitchen and a big mouse ran from the fridge towards me as soon as I turned on the light, then hid between two boxes before darting into the next room. I admit, I screamed like I was in a horror movie, LOL! It was probably because this was much bigger than the others I've seen in here, and headed towards me rather than away. The joys of living near woods...I enjoy it most of the time though. I'm headed to the dentist in the morning to get this filling adjusted so I can chew and bite normally again, shouldn't take long or be a big deal. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

The Wash and Feeling Lucky

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more selections to share from The Wash Cart Sale and its Spring has Sprung round, which you can visit anytime before the 10th of April. That gives you plenty of time to explore the many carts loaded with bargains at $10L, $25L, or $50L with clothing, accessories, home decor, and more. I feel like there is something for everyone, and the prices are hard to resist. I also have some lucky board prizes from **milky-way, a store at the Kiyomizu Mall that has an entire wall of lucky boards for their group members. The group is free to join, so you don't need lindens, just wait for your initial to show up.


My first look comes from the Aaric's Design cart at The Wash, one of their $25L selections called AD - Bikini & cover-up blouse color change. It consists of the bra, panties, and robe, each in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, all with that cool plaid pattern. There is a notecard to tell you how to adjust the colors, but basically it boils down to right clicking each piece and selecting from the menu that pops up. There are plenty of possibilities, all categorized by general color type. You can visit the Aaric's Design mainstore by clicking here, and the link in my ending credits will whisk you directly to their cart for these bargains.


Our next stop is the CatsClaw Designs cart, where you can find such offerings as the _CCD_Amilia Harness Mini Dress Pink Pattern (left) for $25L. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes. On the right I am wearing the _CCD_Carolina Dress Borealis in Black, one of the $10L selections which includes versions with gold or silver belt clasps, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. I was drawn to the texture and sheen of this gown, and noticed that the belt buckle goes very nicely in either metallic color. The link for the CatsClaw Designs mainstore can be found here, and the cart is linked directly from my ending credits.


A visit to the **milky-way store will show you how well they treat their group members, once you take a look at the back wall and all those terrific prizes in the lucky boards. One of those generous gifts is this *16-09 T-shirt & Summer Dress - Check Pink. It comes in a single mesh size to fit sizes XXS - M, but with a little alpha adjustments to your mesh body it can work just fine. the pink gingham pattern is so sweet for spring or summer, isn't it?


Another prize from the lucky boards is this cozy looking *16-16 Knit Dress Fitted Mesh LB, which comes in a fitted mesh size and a Slink version. The cowl neck and long sleeves made me think of those spring evenings where the temperature drops a bit, so a lush knit like this is the right choice. You can always add leggings beneath if you feel the urge.


Speaking of things to wear with leggings...I probably should have added something beneath this adorable *18-12 Maxi Sweater-Off White, but I was too eager to show off this lucky board prize ;) It comes in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and all you need to do is have your store group tag active and wait for your initial to come up. Something else you might notice at the store is that the Kiyomizu Spring 2019 hunt has started, and I will be blogging prizes from that very soon including the one found at **milky-way.

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

Boho Spring is Enticing

Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features some more selections from The Wash Cart Sale, which is in the first weekend of its Spring has Sprung round (until April 10th). Each cart has offers for $10L, $25L, and $50L, so there are bargains galore waiting for your visit. We will also be picking up a couple more hunt prizes from the Boho Hunt, just $1L each and found inside tiny white llamas by following the hints on their website. I even have a special dress by Entice to share from the Days of Yore event, so this is a fully packed post that I am very excited about :)


First we have some treats from the Vicarious Youth cart, starting with the {V*Y} Basic Tee - My Favorite Sport is Reading and the {V*Y} Button Cuff Capris - Marine Linen which are $10L each. The tee includes Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, while the capris come in standard mesh sizing. On the right I am wearing their {-V-} Romper - Marine Shimmer, which is one of the $25L offers and comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. This cart has items for the whole family, so bring everyone down for some new spring clothing! Their mainstore link can be found here, and the direct ride to their cart is in the ending credits.


We also visit the *baci shop* cart at The Wash tonight, where you can find offers like the Lana dress I'm wearing on the left above, and their Lena dress on the right. Each of these are just $10L, and are provided in sizes for Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There are other versions of this dress style available too, in addition to completely different items, all at very reasonable prices. You can visist the baci mainstore by clicking here, and the ending credits link will bring you directly to their cart.


The Boho Hunt is still bringing fantastic prizes for just $1L each, like this flirty Boho Hunt Set Gift! from Princess Stuff. The top comes in fitmesh standard sizes, while the shorts are included in fitmesh standard plus Maitreya and Slink versions. I love the vibrant color, and the bow on the back of the top with the tails draped down are a lovely detail.


Be still, my happy hippie heart! This is the ladies prize from Fukin Cute, specified because there is also a mens giftie inside this llama. This is the FC BohoBabe Grn, whose top and skirt each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The pattern running down the skirt is delightful, and I really appreciate the intricate details of the halter top like the fringe and ties with sweet bows.


For my final look this evening, we visit the Days of Yore event and head to the Entice display there to find this sensational dress. It is called Nocturnal Hekate, and the design harkens back to ancient Greece, particularly with the key pattern adorning the trim. There are 8 colors sold individually for $175L each (regularly $300L) or you can purchase the fatpack (my suggestion) for $599L which includes 2 exclusive textures for a total of 10, all via HUD. The fatpack exclusives in this case are more of a gradient or ombre, including the one shown on the right above. No matter which you choose, they all include sizes for Freya, Maitreya, and Slink Hourglass. The event link is in the ending credits, and the Entice mainstore is in my right hand sidebar as always :)

I am truly not sure how to describe my day...it was tiring but enjoyable, and I got to see a cousin (first cousin once removed or something?) that I rarely see, so that made it special. I'm not the type of person who enjoys car rides, so being out and about stopping several places was not my idea of a good time, but at least a couple of the places made me smile. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening/weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
