Looking Chic with COCO

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I am pleased to show you some of the generous group gifts found at *COCO* Designs. Their group is free to join, and there are 4 displays of gifts that my link should put you in the center of all. Please do explore them all, and you will find an impressive selection of clothing and accessories that you can claim for free. Whether you are looking for casual or more dressy, modest or revealing, you can find a wide range among these thoughtful gifts.


For my first look this evening, I chose the *COCO*_Gift_LaceHemCamiDress_PinkFloral. This beautiful slip dress has a scalloped hem and delicate spaghetti straps that lace the back together. It comes in Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. 


Next I paired two gifts together, starting with the *COCO*_Gift_BacklessTwistTee_Red-17. This fun top is provided in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies, in a vibrant shade of red with clever styling. It looks great with the *COCO*_Gift_HighWaistColorJeans_DarkGrey which is yet another group gift you can pick up for free. The high waist is contrasted by the low rear pockets which I think draws attention to booty curves just right ;) The jeans come in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. 


I kept those jeans on here but changed into the *COCO*_Gift_OneShoulderTop+Choker_Blue which I think will pair well with many types of pants or skirts. The top itself comes in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, while the separate choker has Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. I really appreciate being able to choose which way to wear, with or without, since the choker adds something but there are times you may have a special necklace you already want to wear. It is helpful for those who wear collars with sentimental meaning also. 


If you want to get dressed up this weekend, I would love to suggest picking up this very pretty *COCO*_Gift_FeatherHemDress. Its strapless style fits snugly through the bodice and hips, then is bursting with feathered fun to mid-thigh. The gift includes Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite body sizing. 


Many weekends are casual for me, so I am really enjoying the *COCO*_Gift_DenimJumpsuit which is my final look this evening. The duo of jumpsuits are in blue and dark blue, each to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The slender straps and flirty cutout in the back are nice touches, and the full cropped legs make me think of breezy late summer/early fall evenings.

Another weekend, another change in plans...this time it was another postponed dinner at my parents'. I'm fine and they are too, it was just a case of bad timing. As of right now I am still going to the farmers market in the morning, then doing a bunch of boring household things for the rest of the weekend. I will try to watch more Marvel movies too, since I am still way behind :) As far as SL goes, I just might try out a different mesh head since I have been in a Genus rut for ages even after picking up free group gift heads from other brands. Tweaking a shape to get things just the way I prefer can be so tedious, no wonder I'd put it off! But the results can be worth it for variety's sake. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More 13Event Goodies

Hiya everyone! Tonight is a part two of the 13Event group gifts, since there were just too many for only one post :) It is free to join the 13Event group, and there are over 40 gifts to claim so it is very much worth a visit. Plus it is a great excuse to do some shopping! This is a relatively new event and is only their second round so far, but I am definitely impressed with what I've seen. The array of designers is remarkable, and I look forward to future rounds too.


First we see the FurtaCor*Candy Dress gift, which is as versatile as it is lovely. The dress is provided in 5 classic and 5 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, plus versions for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD that lets you choose from 30 textures (mixture of solids and patterns) for the main dress, 30 for the skirt alone, and 3 for the lace layer under the skirt. Clicking a main dress button will change the entire thing at once, then if you want the skirt to be different you would click that next. The lacy under-layer goes last.


Ruxy is offering a trio of pert dresses as their 13Event gift, called Diana Red. There is just one size that seems to be for the Maitreya body, at least it fit mine perfectly. There is a solid red, red flower (left above), and red plaid (right) that all have a halter style and are short enough to double as a long shirt if you wish. You can see from behind that the back right hip is hiked up fairly high, so I will probably layer some shorts or jeans beneath for non-adult locations.


Next we have the Charazad gift of "Touch my Soul" Fatpack which includes the dress in two versions and the thigh high boots. The solid and transparent dresses are each provided in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature Alice, Star, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizes. You will also find the peeptoe boots in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The fatpack part is courtesy of a handy HUD, which offers an amazing 144 colors that you activate by clicking the button for which piece you are tinting and then click the little color button you desire. The dress is quite sexy in solid with those crisscross straps, then the transparent version ramps that up even more!


I also claimed the ladies gift from MadCatCreations (they have two displays next to each other, male and female items, each with its own gift) called MCC - Boho Fairy Complete. The top, sheer skirt, and solid skirt are each packed separately in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. Each folder also has an 8 texture HUD so you can change the look to suit your personal tastes. I am wearing the sheer skirt on the left above, and it has shorts built in so it is still appropriate to wear wherever you wish. 


My final look of the evening is the alluring .:Beyond:. Samay - Black bikini. It includes the top and thong each in solid and patterned versions, all in sizes for Freya, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The wraparound top is revealingly low cut, and the pattern is beautiful crescent moons with stars. This is such a great gift for these steamy summer months!

It has been a weird day so I will keep this short and sweet :) I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

13Event Gifts

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to invite you to the 13Event, where you will find a fantastic selection of sales offers and free group gifts. It probably will not surprise you that I am focusing on those group gifts tonight, which you can claim by joining their free group and clicking all the gift boxes at each display. There are over 40 participating designers, so there is much to see and appreciate. 


My first look this evening is the S-Pearly dress from Suna Design, which is a flirty style with front and back both created of straps linked by narrow bands in solid colors to match the floral print of the skirt. The dress comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing, with a 6 color HUD so you can change the look easily. 


Next I slipped into the FF Original - Dress Alexia SKULL IV which is the group gift from Fatal Fashion. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Tonic Curvy mesh bodies, with a playful pattern of skeletons dancing about. That could give it a slight Halloween flavor, but it does not look out of place any time of year if you enjoy the Goth vibe.


[ LsR ] is offering their Sexy Treshi Sport Dress as the event's group gift, for which I am very grateful :) This long tank style dress has pinstripes down each side to match the color of the trim outlining the neckline and arm holes, and speaking of colors there is a HUD with 8 combinations of hues. They all say QUEEN on the front with the number 69 on the back. The dress comes in Freya, Isis, and Maitreya mesh body sizes.


The gift from BlackLace is their provocative VIVI DRESS BY BL, with a daringly asymmetrical hemline that rides high on the left thigh and an intricate sheer bodice. It is provided in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Minimizer mesh bodies. This is clearly not your basic little black dress :)


My final look of the evening is a flirty one, starting with the :::WATERMELON:::Helix Outfit  group gift. It comes in system/BOM layers and can be worn by classic avatars or BOM-compatible mesh bodies, and has solid teal sections on a translucent dark material. I also added the SPT-Beach gift from Spirit Tattoo, which is also a system/BOM layer so it was very easy to wear with the outfit. I included a closer view so you could catch the details of the surfboard in front of the waves and sun. I really like the upper ribcage placement, probably quite painful in RL but we get to enjoy the magic of SL with pain-free body art.

My day went pretty smoothly, with the podiatrist appointment being slightly less painful than I'd feared. Apparently going there consistently is training my toenails to grow correctly or at least somewhat straighter, so they are easier to deal with. The weather was decent, and I am ready to relax tomorrow before a couple of busy but enjoyable days. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Escape The Ordinary

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we get to Escape The Ordinary with the hunt of the same name :) It is a $0L - $2L hunt where the prizes are hidden in gift boxes that resemble beige cardboard with a touch of pink blush to them, tied with twine. You will find an example on most of the store's signs, clickable for a hint. I really enjoyed being a part of the blogging team for this hunt, and am grateful to every single designer for bringing a touch of the uncommon to SL. 


First up we have the flirty ~*SD*~ HF183F [ETO2] prize from Starshine Design. Find their gift box for just $2L and you can claim this daring dress in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh body sizes. The front reads "I'm a good girl with bad habits" and I can certainly relate ;) The hemline is a bit longer in the back, which by the way is solid without any cutouts like the front. I love the bright teal color!


This fascinating look is the [Ari-Pari] Shazia Dress, which you can claim for just $1L by finding their gift box. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a HUD that offers 5 colors for the main dress and 5 matching colored patterns for the trim. I feel like a celebrity in this, one who is heading to a fancy event like the Met Gala. 


+BlueBlood+ has two gifts waiting for us to find, starting with the Edge Special Edition t-shirt dress above. This free prize includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, in terrific colors and playful texturing. It gives me cyberpunk vibes, anyone else?


The $1L hunt prize at +BlueBlood+ is called Darkness Corset Special Edition, and is provided in the same sizes as the other prize: Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. It has a wash of purple to pink to teal down the front, and the buckles down the back are quite eye-catching. This is the kind of top that works with anything from a full skirt to your favorite pants, or just panties if you are in a more intimate setting.


My final look shows you two of the three birds from the Beehead Studios prize called V A P O R B Nightlight. The pet version is on my shoulder, the Chonk size is to the right (my avi's left), and the Smol (small) version is not shown but is closer to the pet in size. Each of these lights can be turned on or off by clicking, for a delightful glow that reaches up to 10 meters. The one on my shoulder is off, while the chonk cutie is on and providing considerable light :) Have I mentioned lately how much I love birds? So there is no surprise that I am tickled pink by this prize.

It was a calm day at home, which I was going to refer to as quiet but it was literally loud since there is still work being done outside that involves wood chippers among other noisy equipment. Tomorrow I have a podiatrist appointment for my frequent ingrown toenails, all that digging is not fun but it is necessary so I will grit my teeth and take calming breaths. I hope you are all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Beached Bunny Bounty

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we take a look at several more prizes from the Beached Bunny Hunt, a longtime tradition that is in its 11th year. There are teal beach pails hidden at each participating store for just $1L apiece, easy to find by following the hints and landmarks on the hunt's website. There are preview photos for most of them, so you can get a good idea of what you will be able to claim from each pail. I was familiar with most of the designers who are taking part, but a few were new to me which does make me happy as well. The mixture of old and new makes it special :) 


My first look this evening comes from the Cats n' Kittens Boutique, called CnK: Double the Trouble Set. This duo of swimsuits comes in blue and pink versions, each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The color accents are the straps which cross in the back and wrap around the waist to form a delicate belt. The swimsuits have moderate coverage in the rear, yet the plunging neckline reveals flirty cleavage in front. 


There is something so fun about a strapless romper, so I was delighted to find the pail containing the AC: Coral Reefer Romper at Applique` Chic. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body sizes. There is also a HUD provided with 6 colors to choose from, since variety is always appreciated. 


I can't decide what I like best about the prize from Bunny Cat, the colors or the romantic style! It is called .BC. Marina Dress-Pink and is an ombre maxi dress that has an intricate paneled skirt and clever gathering at the waist. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Dragon, Fox, Tiger, and Werewolf mesh bodies. I think it would be fun wear this over a BOM bikini at the beach as a gorgeous coverup!


The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. has a clever gift for us called DON'T TOUCH ME Tee, and it really made me chuckle. It reads "FREE HUGS just kidding DON'T TOUCH ME", which is how I find myself feeling sometimes especially with people I don't know. At least virtual hugs are germ-free and safe for friends :) The prize includes standard mesh sizes along with versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. I paired it with the white pair of jeans from my favorite marketplace freebie from Delizio, an entire fatpack of colors in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega.


My final look of the evening is the Blue Jeans Bikini from "Freda". Its bustier top and thong bottom are each included in Freya, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Rebirth Eden, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. Denim is one of those materials that is not always comfortable in RL unless it's been worn and washed a bunch, yet in SL we can wear it even in styles that might not suit RL like a thong. The unique bra cups and ruffling are great details here.

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

Enticing Summer Treats

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more Beached Bunny Hunt prizes to share, all of which can be found inside teal beach pails for $1L apiece by following the landmarks and hints on the hunt's website. I have done many hunts in my time in SL, and some like this one are consistently fun with genuinely helpful hints that make sense while being quite well organized. I would also like to show you the Entice offerings for this week's Saturday Sale, and while Saturday is over the sales prices last for a few more days :) So you can save money to look terrific!


My first look is the Go Frock Yourself hunt prize called GFY-Beach Dress. This cute strapless mini has a loose but flattering fit and comes in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body versions. There is also a HUD with 7 texture choices, all of which are summery and really beautiful. The pineapple in sunglasses makes me think of a Bob's Burgers episode, so that alone makes it a winner in my book!


Maybe your plans this week include a beach or pool, then please be sure to find the prize at Crayon's Closet named Paint Splash Bikini. The top and bottom are each provided in eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. The rear view is noteworthy because of the thong styling and the way all the top's straps come together in one fun bow. 


ART & FASHION always lives up to their name by combining the two concepts, as with their pretty HOPE MINI DRESS prize. It comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus versions for Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. The balloon above the figure on the front might represent hope, based on the dress name :) I really like the single shoulder style and the rear cutout, not to forget the right thigh opening. 


Another perfect seasonal prize is the [Ari-Pari] Wild Child Bikini seen here. This two piece leopard print swimsuit is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes, with a HUD offering 10 color variations of this striking texture. I love the various bursts of colors, which give me strong Lisa Frank childhood flashbacks in the best way :) 


Time to head to Entice for their Saturday Sale selections! This week we have several choices that are variations of their Wolves Dress, like the Tattered - Plum I am wearing on the left above, and the Leather - Midnight to the right. The tattered versions are shorter because of the ripped hem, and have tears in various spots as though were were playing rough with some wolves ;) The fabric is also sheer, particularly compared to the leather. These choices, plus another color of each style, are just $75L each until the 22nd which is Thursday. Then we have the previously released color sets in each style, which are on sale for $199L each (down from $300L) or in fatpacks with 2 bonus colors for $449L (discounted from $599L). If you simply cannot choose and desire them all, the mega fatpack includes every color you'd receive in the dark tattered, light tattered, dark leather, and light leather fatpacks so 40 amazing options for $1299L which is regularly $1599L. No matter which you choose, you will receive sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The fatpacks all function by use of HUDs so they are easier on the wallet and inventory space :) 

It was a hot and busy weekend, but I enjoyed it and was glad it went well. I got a little overheated when leaving the farmers market and felt unwell for a brief time, but the air conditioning in the car helped. This week should be decent, with an appointment Wednesday then the usual weekend plans, but not much else. I hope you all had a fun weekend and are enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Beached Bunny Hunt

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I explored the Beached Bunny Hunt path, which brings us $1L prizes hiding inside teal beach pails at each stop. There are landmarks, hints, and preview photos on the hunt's website to guide us, so you can see ahead of time what valuable treats we are finding for such a deeply discounted single linden dollar. It looks like this is the 11th round of this particular hunt, which is an impressive feat and one I am grateful for each summer.


Our first stop is Grumble, who happens to be the force behind the Evil Bunny Productions hunts and events. Their gift is simply called BBH11 Hunt Gift and consists of the tank top and casual shorts in Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Minimizer sizes. The top has a brightly colorted pattern, and the shorts are loosely gathered with a drawstring which is a fun detail. 


I also found the pail at Indigenous, which contains their beautiful Lemonaide dress. It comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Signature Alice mesh bodies. There is also a pair of BOM (system layer) panties that I am not wearing on the right because they hide the bum cleavage that I wanted you to be aware of :) Speaking of that rear view, how great are those dainty crossed straps? The lemon slices look very pretty against the multicolored background too.


Summertime hunts bring out the best swimsuits, like this EC Doria Swimsuit Aqua from Emerald Couture. Its straps provide a shapely style that hug the curves beautifully, and it comes in plenty of sizes to fit nearly every body. There are standard mesh sizes included as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Kupra, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions. 


Maybe you are in the mood for a one piece swimsuit, then please head to Starlight Apparel to find their pail. It holds the .{SA}. Piper Swimsuit Mermaid in sizes for Freya, Isis, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Hourglass, and Hourglass Petite body sizing. I really like the scale texture in the mix of pinks, purples, and blues. The ruffle waist and crossed straps are excellent touches as well. 


My final look this evening brings bold primary colors in an equally bold zigzag pattern. The prize from BlondeQueen is their BBH - BQ:::Chevron Swimsuit::: Blue/Red&Blue/Yellow. Both versions are provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and I was drawn to the playful ruffles. Fun fact, one of these has my high school colors and the other has their main sports rival's colors, so I giggled at the memories. Both were Catholic schools so obviously this was not part of either uniform ;) My school's blue was a different shade though, a bit lighter with a tiny hint of teal. 

My plans are always changing, and we had to cancel my dinner at my parents' again this week unfortunately. I am still going to the farmers market tomorrow morning though and will most likely see them there. The weather will be hot so I will be taking precautions and going as early as possible before the full heat of the day is upon us. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
