Fishing for Summer Grab Bags at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am excited to show you a sampling of prizes from the newest Fish 4 This set at Sn@tch, which is called Summer Grab Bags. There are 22 bags to catch with your 7 Seas rod (purchase at Sn@tch or on the marketplace, reuse for free forever) and they contain various wardrobe builders for the upcoming season like shirts, skirts, hairstyles, earrings, and more. The bags are transferable, so you can trade your spares with friends to help everyone complete the collection faster. You'll have just under 2 weeks to catch them all, and I was fortunate enough to do it with Xan's help in a single night. There are sofas inside that are all within range of the fishing too if you want to sit and relax while catching these grab bags.


First we start with one of the hair prizes, the Sn@tch Isla Hair in Blonde. It is a sleek style with tendrils of bangs, and the sides pulled up into a high pony. There are 2 sizes inside the grab bag, and 2 other grab bags with black and red shades. The dress is the Sn@tch Kree T-Shirt Dress in Palms, a playful print on a simple V neck short sleeved style with gathered waist. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. Another treat that I am wearing in all of tonight's photos is the grab bag gift Sn@tch Reflections Eyes, which come in a whopping 30 colors as system layers, mesh eyes with HUD, and an Omega applier which is what I used. Natural, fantasy, pale, dark, there is a little something for everyone here.


For this look I switched to the Sn@tch Darla Hair in Black, a fun style swooped over to one side and gently draped past the shoulders. This hair (as with all the other styles/colors) includes two sizes. I have also changed into the Sn@tch Walkin' Tube Top in Sea, fitting for a shimmery ocean of sequins in such pretty colors :) It is included in sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The skirt paired with it is our Sn@tch Ida Ruffled Denim Skirt in Faded, with a bold slanted hem and very detailed texture. The grab bag holds sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine.


I really do think the Sn@tch Isla Hair looks as wonderful in Auburn as it did in the first photo Blonde. The tank tops I am wearing here are the Sn@tch Gettin Lifted Sheer Tanks, in Peach on the left and Aqua on the right. There is also a white version in the grab bag, all in system layers and an Omega applier. They were fun to wear with the Sn@tch Angel or Devil Boho Skirt in Blue, which comes in standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. Another star of this photo is the Sn@tch Salma Heels in Taupe, which you will find in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high sizes inside their grab bag. The neutral color makes them quite useful, and the straps and buckles add plenty of interest.


No summer wardrobe would be complete without a swimsuit, right? I love this prize called Sn@tch Spring Break Bikini in Floral, with flirty ties and delicate pattern to soften the dark background. It is provided in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. I also changed into the Sn@tch Hunter Hair in Blonde, a top braid leading into loose braid over the left shoulder. The loose tendrils escaping from the crown make for a sexy, casual look.


The Sn@tch Hunter Hair also comes in Red as seen here, as well as Black which you will have to catch and try on yourself to see ;) The auburn shade and the style both seemed like perfect choices to go with the Sn@tch Novia Slip Dress in Ocean, since the colors complement each other. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine fits, all with that one strap sliding seductively down the shoulder. 

I feel like this post is taking me an eternity to write for some reason >.< and it is embarrassing! I have been rather distracted, for one thing I had been reading people's reactions to the upcoming SL changes that will reduce group slots for non-premium members while slightly raising the group slots (and IMs etc) for premium members. Before you get mad at premium members though, we will be paying a 37.5% increase in yearly fees which honestly feels like a lot at once. My RL has been stressful today too, so I need the escape of being in SL later :) I hope you're all having a great day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Group Gifts for SLF&O

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some group gifts to share for the SLF&O group, which is short for SL Frees & Offers. Their group is free to join, and there are many participating designers who offer gifts at their stores to anyone sporting the group's tag. It is also a helpful source of information about sales, events, and limited time discounts. The group chat usually has great things like midnight mania locations that need clicking at the time, or random freebies that can really help fill out a wardrobe. Tonight's looks can help you do the same, as we visit the stores of some very talented and generous designers.


First we have the SLFO gift from .:AMUI:. called Antoinette Black. To find this, go into the store and turn right, turn right again through a doorway, then turn around and look to the left of the doorway where you'll see the SLFO sign and this gift :) It includes the beautiful dress in fitmesh standard sizing as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, plus the collar which is a stunning necklace. 


Belle Epoque is offering their lovely {Lauren} dress as the SLFO gift, and it comes in a single mesh size rigged for Maitreya bodies. I love the color, and the wide neckline will be a nice frame for your favorite necklace. The belt you see is built in, so easy to wear.


This charming dress is courtesy of Continuum, their Cassandra Sakura Dress Gift. It comes in sizes for Altamura, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, all in that fun halter style with heart cutout and terrific floral pattern.


I can't get over this delightfully fuzzy gift from {amiable} called Angola Knit One-piece Green. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizing, with a lacy trim at the hem that reminds me of bloomers. There could still be some breezy evenings since summer isn't fully here yet, and this will be one of my go-to outfits in that case.


Tonight I am wearing the stiletto nails that come with the Slink mesh hands, and have been pleased to decorate them with another group gift for SLFO. These manicures are the CAZIMI: Kiara Nails, 5 designs on appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink nails. They are dark and glossy, with lace at the half-moon or cuticle in 5 different colors. Such a thoughtful gift, like all of tonight's looks.

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

More Sexy LsR Moda

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit LsR Moda again, for several equally appealing reasons. There was one more group gift I wanted to share (free to join) and a couple for other groups, and I did mention yesterday the 10 lucky boards for group members. Well I was able to win a couple of those to share with you as well :) What it all boils down to is that I have multiple looks to show you that won't cost you a thing, other than time and a couple of group slots. Some good fortune will help at those lucky boards of course, I can be a bit superstitious and like to have a lucky charm of some sort handy. Here is my quick description of how to find everything: you will land at the group gifts from my landmark, facing that wall the lucky boards are to your right. For the group gifts for other than LsR Moda, you will cross the glass floor diagonally to the opposite corner from the lucky boards. Easy peasy :)


My first look tonight is the LsR - Sexy Iria Shirt Gift, a group gift you can claim with your LsR Moda group tag. The black and white versions are each provided in sizes for Altamura, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and I will note that one of the ones I tried on that was labeled Maitreya did not look like it fit correctly. So I noticed there were two of the other color (Maitreya and Maitreya 1) so it turned out that those are actually both correct colors. This can be worn with your favorite jeans, shorts, or leggings, and I am thinking that an applier or system layer type rather than mesh will fit easier beneath.


The LsR group gift for Mesh Body Friends is a duo of tops and skirts that you can wear matched in color or mixed as I have above. Each is included in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, and Hourglass sizes, with contrasting trim and bows.


This sleeveless mock turtleneck sweater dress is the LsR - Sexy Thali Lila Dress Gift for the MGSN (Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News) group. It has a beautiful ombre and knit texture, in sizes for Altamura, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique.


Feeling lucky? You certainly will be in this LsR - Sexy Eliane Snake Dress, a lucky board prize that you can claim with your free group tag for LsR Moda. The pattern is divine, and the style makes it look like I am ready to shed my skin and be a wild new woman! The prize includes Freya, Isis, Maitreya, and Hourglass sizes for mesh bodies.


My final look this evening is another lucky board prize, the LsR - Sexy Love Shirt. In brightest pink, it is emblazoned with the word Love in a classic 70s style that makes me a happy hippie :) Inside the prize you will find sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

I am convinced that we need to offer Mother Nature something to calm her down, maybe a nice bottle of wine or some homemade brownies? LOL! She is still wreaking havoc in my area, and I suspect it will be this way off and on all summer. We had another tornado warning for several hours this afternoon into evening, and those used to be quite rare (maybe twice a decade) so I am not used to them. I hope you're all having a safe and enjoyable day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

LsR Group Gifties

Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting just one store, LsR Moda, where we are claiming several group gifts with their free group tag. There are 6 currently available, and another benefit of their group membership is access to the lucky boards that are nearby. I believe I saw 10 of those :) LsR Moda's style is flirty and fashionable, as you will see, and these generous gifts are a lovely sampling of their hard work.


This first look is the LsR - Sexy Edith Dress Black, well it might be misnamed because it doesn't appear black to me but it certainly does qualify as sexy! Claim this gift and you will receive sizes for Altamura, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The mock turtleneck style is a clever contrast to the short hem and side slits all the way up to there ;) 


Next we take a look at the LsR - Sexy Henna S Valentin Dress Black Gift, and while it was intended for Valentines Day I believe that since love is year round, I will be wearing it quite often. It comes in sizes for Altamura, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, and Hourglass, all with various hearts and the word Love in what reminds me of chalk on a blackboard.


This group gift is called LsR - Sexy Imma Camo Pink Set Gift, with top and shorts each in Altamura, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. The bands say Sexy Girl and Sporty Girl, alternating all the way around, and the pattern puts me in mind of sand camo with hints of pink.


The LsR - Sexy Keny Dress Gift includes not one, not two, but FOUR different colors of the same provocative mini dress. In addition to the red and pink shown above, there are black and white versions, each sized for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya. 


My final look of the evening is the LsR - Sexy Susie Denim Dress Gift May, a buttoned mini with detached look sleeves and distressed spots both front and back. The gift includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies. I do recommend wearing panties with this, and the nice thing is with denim any color will coordinate well.

I am struggling to figure out what to do to help someone in my life who has been fighting off a random fever with no other symptoms for 4 days now. It's hard to tell if they are contagious when we don't know what's wrong, so I have to be cautious in addition to helpful. Dinner at my parents' was nice, turkey burgers and rotisserie chicken with homemade potato salad (mock barbecue) with a bit of leftovers for tomorrow. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Treats from Tres Chic

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit Tres Chic to celebrate their 2nd anniversary, where you can find exclusive selections for sale as well as gifts at many of the displays. You will need the free Tres Chic group tag active to claim them, and you will find them inside stacks of blocks with letters on them and hearts inside one of the top two. There is clothing and accessories along with a wide selection of home decor, well worth exploring this fun round which is open until the 10th of June. I also have a fantastic eye makeup set to show you from LIVIA, who is in the process of moving so all of their offers are on the marketplace for the time being.


The very first thing I'd like to point out here is my hair, which is a group gift from =DeLa*= called Irene. It includes a color HUD with 18 shades to choose from, an excellent variety of natural, ombre, and fantasy. The glossy appearance definitely caught my eye. My outfit is from Black Opium and is their Ingrid Win gift. It consists of top and skirt each in solid or ethnic print, all in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya. I mixed them here but you can pair them up as a match too, whatever suits your mood, and it will look just as beautiful.


I changed the hair to a deep brunette shade, and slipped into the group gift from AVALE called Kathia - Black. It is both elegant and flirty, with a slip style and sheer skirt, and would look great with any type of jewelry you like. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.


This Roxy dress in Copper from ella made me think of dragons (I may have expressed the opinion to Xan that my boobs looked like dragon eggs when I first tried it on, LOL) so I chose a wilder hair color too. The shimmery dress comes in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizing, and the style is just out of this world. 


This auburn hair color is my usual preference, and I think it looks exceptional in this style. I changed into the anniversary gift from Insomnia Store called iS Spring Babydoll Dress Flowered SUN. It has two versions (flowered left, sun right) each in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya. The sheer layer atop the skirt looks pretty with or without the flowers, and what a fun way to be ready for summer!


This striking new release from LIVIA is called Daily Glam Eyeshadow and Liners, 6 varieties for $129L each HUD. There are Catwa, Genus, and LAQ compatible appliers on the marketplace as well as demos, just sort by newest (Age:Newest First on drop menu, top right) to find the one you wish. I am wearing the Genus versions here, and I love a bold flick of eyeliner along with that wash of coppery brown shadow. Neutral colors have the advantage of being wearable with any outfit, from your boldest colored dress to a cozy pair of jeans. There is something about LIVIA and their cosmetics that always helps me feel extra pretty :)

It was a fairly typical Sunday here, other than a quick storm that had the potential for quarter-sized hail. Fortunately the hail stayed away, and I'm just tired of all the weather warnings we have had here lately. I'm about 100 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean, so not usually strongly affected by hurricanes or tropical storms, so this is clearly a change. Tomorrow, actually about 7-8 hours from now, the annoying houseguest leaves and then for dinner I'll be going to my parents' for a mock BBQ hehe. Their grill isn't working so we are having rotisserie chicken and burgers/hot dogs cooked indoors, so makeshift but still good company :) I hope you're all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Lovely Ladybug Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some prizes from the Ladybug Hunt, a $1L gridwide hunt that has us looking for little red ladybugs, or ladybirds as they are known in many areas. Many of the prizes feature ladybugs' most common colors of red and black, with lots of the cute bugs on them. They are considered lucky in many cultures, and are beneficial because they eat harmful bugs for us, so I have never developed a fear of them like I have with many other insects. These selections are all worth so much more than their single linden price, one of the many things I love about hunts!


This charming dress is the prize from Grumble called Lucky Lady Dress. It has a sheer midriff and great one-shoulder styling, with a metallic finish and flowers with subtle ladybugs visiting the blooms. It is included in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine.


Next we have the prize from The Sissy Bar, named Ladybug Hunt Dress after our hunt. It is a creatively designed denim mini with a bustle in the back, how fun is that? The ruffle on the front neckline matches the dots in the midst of the bustle, and the image on the front of the skirt has a cute trio of ladybugs enjoying a leaf. The gift includes eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes.


Changed Seasons has a hidden ladybug too, and it holds this Ladybug outfit for just $1L. The top and skirt each come in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. Each is decorated with a ladybug patterned frill, in a pinkish red satin that is sure to turn heads.


I kept the skirt on from the Changed Seasons prize to wear with the top that is our prize from Southern Sass. It is the playful Ladybug Top, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. It also includes a HUD that has 6 texture choices, two of which can be seen above.


My final look of the evening is the prize from Susie's Shoppe, a pair of Ladybug Dresses in blue and green. Each color is provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The top layers have sweet ladybug prints with a tiny polka dot background, while the long skirt portion has a larger but still subtle polka dot print.

It was a beautiful day out, and I kept busy as usual for a Saturday. I am watching old episodes of Bob's Burgers while I blog, one of my favorite things to binge, and it drowned out the sounds of sports from downstairs nicely ;) I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Get Lucky at Mangula

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some lucky board prizes to show you, from Mangula, and you don't even need a particular group tag to claim these treats. Just wait for your initial to show up on any of the 11 lucky boards, then give it a click. All of these prizes come in 4 sizes (Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya) but I have to admit that I am not sure if the "curvy" is Tonic or eBody. I don't own either body so I couldn't test it, but as usual with free gifts I suggest trying all the sizes on to see if any fit closely enough. I am really impressed with the variety among these generous gifts!


First we see the Mangula Nela Set Dress [Military 1] which is one of the many lucky board prizes available. The camouflage pattern is not really going to hide you, not when the flirty style looks that good!


Next we have the prize called Mangula Mena Set Lucky Letters Gift, which has wonderful details that can be adjusted. There are two different tops, with and without sleeves, so you can choose which to wear with the strappy mini skirt. There are also black and brown belts in matching sizes for the skirt, so you can wear with either color or even without a belt whatsoever.


This prize has plenty of options too, loving all this versatility! This is Mangula Lina Set [Red] Gift, and it's packed with a tiny shirt, two versions of shorts, and two versions of leggings. There is a HUD with 10 rope colors (the lacing of the front, leggings or shorts) and 2 metals, as well as the ability to turn materials on or off. The shorts and leggings have a solid version and "version 2" which is an ombre like on the right. 


Mangula Lana Set Lucky Letters Gift includes the top and skirt shown here, plus a HUD that offers 11 color choices each for the belt and buttons of the skirt. You can mix and match them, even tint them to blend in with the skirt's tan shade.


My final look of the night is the Mangula Diana Set Sexy Dress M1 [Blue], which includes three unique dress styles and an unrigged golden belt with resize script for each size. The one not shown is short and has a slanted hem like the longer one on the right above, while the neckline is even lower than these. I was entranced by the vivid color, and I expect it to be flattering to all skin tones and hair colors.

Strange things seem to happen whenever I make plans lately, and today was no exception. My dinner with my parents was canceled due to someone having a fever, which returned to below normal after 8 hours and just a single dose of Advil. It was like a false alarm or the world's fastest healing virus, we just don't know, but that means my house will be invaded by an unwelcome houseguest in the morning for a few days. I only ever have two houseguests, the good and the bad, and this is the bad. It won't affect my blogging, since I will mostly be avoiding them, a mutual choice. The sounds of sports and beers being chugged will fill the air, and I will find something cool on Netflix or Hulu to watch :) I hope you all have a beautiful weekend planned, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

One More Night

Hiya everyone! Tonight there were just enough prizes from the Womenstuff Hunt 2019 for one last post, so that is exactly what we are about to see :) I am under a tornado warning at the moment so I'm going to try to make this brief, but that is simply not in my nature...I'm inherently talkative I guess. As I've mentioned in my prior posts, it is useful to have the hunt's website open for hints, landmarks, and info on if the prize is exclusive for this hunt.


First we have the SnB Fashion free prize called WS2019 Wendie Dress, a sleek mini with peplum-like ruffles at the waist. It comes in plenty of sizes: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with a 3 color HUD (two shown above) for you to change the look if you wish. 


If you are headed to a beach inworld, here is a beautiful outfit you can enjoy for free if you find that t-shirt at Matahari Style Couture. It is called Cayman Swimwear Set, and includes the top, thong bottom, and sarong, each in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The colors are jaw-droppingly pretty!


Next we have something for colder climates in SL, the gift from !APHORISM! inside their free tee. It is called Karen Winter Body Warmer - Camo Candy Ltd Ed, and comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The provided HUD offers 9 textures for the sweater (all solid), 9 for the shirt layered beneath (a mix of solids and plaids) and even 4 metals for the buttons. As you can probably guess from the Ltd Ed ending of the name, this is an exclusive prize so you can only obtain it this month through this very hunt.


Our prize from via Silver is the free *vS* WS Garden Pants, a pair of overalls with built in tank top layered beneath. It comes in standard fitmesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions, in pale yellow with a pattern of roses in bloom.


My final look of the night is a burst of color on a flirty stylized mini from MadCatCreations. Find their $1L shirt and you too can claim their Glamour Rainbow Dress, which is provided in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. This is an exclusive offering for this hunt, so I urge you to visit soon if you like what you see.

The tornado warning has passed, I am safe and sound :) There was a different storm system that moved through this afternoon, but tonight's was the one with all the warnings and alerts and scary sounding things. One clap of thunder was so sharp and loud it almost had me diving under my desk, LOL! I had a chiropractor appointment earlier and visited a farmers market, so it was busy but enjoyable. My Friday will be focused on the evening, having dinner with my parents on what happens to be their 50th wedding anniversary ♥. Can you imagine being married for so long? They are certainly an inspiration, and I am excited for a low key but loving celebration. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
