Scandals Frees and News

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features a sample of the many group gifts available at the Scandalize outlet, for the free SCANDALS Frees and News Group. This outlet has over a hundred fatpacks, all of which can be purchased without the group tag or claimed FREE with that group tag by clicking the black SCANDALS logo that is shaped like a scalloped circle or flower. There are signs around to show you how to claim the gifts, as well as how to join the group, so you should have no problem. The fatpacks are very generous and work via HUDs, which helps reduce inventory numbers and allows individual sections of clothing items to be tinted for a very customized look. 


My first look is the elegant Scandalize. Britney. FATPACK, a group gift that includes the dress and sleeves are separate pieces to wear together or individually. They are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, and the HUD offers 42 solid colors and 22 ombres for each. The sleeves have a choker-like neck piece attached, and the long gown has a fun frilly ruffle on the rear. It really does look great with or without the sleeves, depending on your plan for accessories. 


This lovely mini is the Scandalize. AngelicDress. FATPACK gift, and it has some really flirty qualities like the sheer skirt layer and deep neckline. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies, with a HUD to choose from 42 colors each for the top, skirt 1, and skirt 2. I had fun clicking various buttons to change it to all one color or various combinations, just trying to find my favorite looks.


I am also a huge fan of this SCANDALIZE. Chic. FATPACK gift! It consists of the top and skirt in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing, with 4 HUDs - top, top dots, skirt, and skirt dots. The top HUDs have sections for the top, knot, and cuffs, while the skirt HUDs have waist, skirt, and ruffles sections. The original HUDs offer 42 solid colors and 22 patterns for each, and the dots HUDs are all the same polka dotted pattern in 42 colors for each section. You can really make this look your own with all those possibilities. 


This sexy set is the SCANDALIZE. Kairi. FATPACK, which includes Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes of the top and skirt. There are two HUDs included, the top/skirt HUD that offers 42 solid colors, 22 ombres, and 22 velvets each, plus the metals/lace HUD with 42 colors each for our rivets and laces. I chose the same blue velvet for both pieces on the left, and a terrific ombre for my right side top and skirt. 


My final look of the evening is a matching pair of gifts, and based on the names I believe they are intended to be worn together. I started with the SCANDALIZE. Dewi. Top. FATPACK, which includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies. Its HUD offers 42 solid colors and 22 patterns each for the top left, top right, and waist segments of the shirt. Then I slipped into the SCANDALIZE. Dewi. Leggings. FATPACK, whose leggings and belt are provided in the same sizes as the top. This gift has a HUD for the belt with 42 choices, and a HUD for the pants with 42 solid colors and 22 metallics to choose from. The sections on all of these HUDs are always labeled, but if you are ever unsure I suggest just clicking a color that you are not currently seeing on the clothing, then see what area changes to the new color. 

It was not one of my better days here, thanks to an upset stomach that might keep me from going out again (did not go to my parents' for dinner) tomorrow. I will take my usual Saturday evening off from blogging anyway, but it might be more of a healing rest then recuperating from a long day out. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Cosmopolitan Anniversary Gifts

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are celebrating another wonderful event's anniversary, as Cosmopolitan rings in 9 years of sales and exclusive offers. There are group gifts at nearly every display, in pretty wooden crates that you can click to receive if you have their free group tag active. May was clearly a good month for events to begin, and nine years is an impressive milestone for any SL business venture. Many congratulations to them! This round is open until the 15th, so it is a limited time but so worth the visit.


My first look is the gift from Candy Kitten called *CK* Never alone dress cosmo. It comes in sizes for Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite bodies, with a HUD offering 5 main colors and 2 for the lace trim. I am very fond of the double deep V, back and front, and the various colors all show off the fabric beautifully.


Next I slipped into the silky #AplBlossom.Argentina Dress No.4 group gift. This charming satin mini has scalloped lace trim and sweet spaghetti straps, and really hugs every curve. The gift includes Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh body sizing. 


I was able to pair two gifts for this fun look, although of course you can wear either gift with anything that you personally prefer. The top is the Brenda Tee - Stone gift from [JUSTICE], which comes in 3 versions (original, decal as seen on the left above, and silky on the right) each sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD with 18 color choices for the trim, so you can change the look to suit your tastes. Our gift from [G-SHOT] is their striking AREI Skirt, in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies. This cute pleated mini skirt also includes a HUD offering 10 colors for the skirt itself and 5 metals for the safety pins on the waistband. Both of these gifts are as versatile as they are pretty :)


This is another pairing of two separate gifts that made me smile. The top is the Zury Top from FashionNatic, and it comes in Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes. The open weave of the edging caught my eye, as did the delicate bow draped down the back. My skirt comes from Ricielli and is called Jodie Skirt Petal, probably in reference to the pale pink that certainly could be found on flower petals. It includes sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. 


My final look of the evening is our group gift from Hilly Haalan, their [hh] Chelsea Overall. I do appreciate a nice casual outfit, and this fits that bill perfectly :) It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes, with a HUD to choose from 10 colors each for the top, pants, buttons, and belt. It looks more like a jumpsuit with the top and pants the same color, but like separate pieces when colored individually. That open top is daring yet covers everything essential, so I like that too. 

I am not sure how to describe my day, since I can't decide if it was good or not. More like quiet but slow with a touch of frustrating, as I got a message from my mom that someone wanted me to text her or call her. I texted, and it's now been several hours with no reply. I don't want to feel like I am bothering her or chasing her down, but can't imagine what was so important if she didn't reply. I let my mother know what happened in case the person asks again, and will try texting again in the morning but then I'm done. I did not get much inventory sorting done yet, but will try again later :) What an intimidating task! Oh well, I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

FaMESHed is Fantastic

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are heading back to the FaMESHed 9th anniversary round for a few more wonderful group gifts. The group is free to join, and most of the designers are offering a gift in pretty gift boxes at each display. There is a variety of offerings both for sale and among the gifts, so I hope you enjoy browsing and shopping as much as I did. 


First we have the [Aleutia] gift which is their Chiara Tank Top - FATPACK. It has double straps (for double the fun!) and comes in sizes for Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies. There is also a HUD provided with 36 colors to choose from as well as on/off for glitter and several transparency levels. The glitter is subtle and difficult to capture in a still image but I strongly suggest turning it on just to see if you like it :)


Meva is also offering a gift for FaMESHed group members, their Sue Dress Fameshed Gift 21. It includes Maitreya and Maitreya petite versions, and says "That ain't cool" on the frond with a cap-wearing skull in red and blue. The back has been playfully shredded, with horizontal slits stretched across for peeks of skin. I must have old school wrestling on the brain because the back reminded me of Hulk Hogan's shirts, and the front made me think of Rowdy Roddy Piper's movie They Live with the sunglasses and skull. 


Next I changed into the M.NA Elena Birthday Dress which has neon colored bats and stars on a dramatic dark backdrop. The gift comes in Freya, Isis, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite sizing to fit popular mesh bodies. The vivid colors really caught my eye, while the bats make me think I will be wearing this again when Halloween season arrives.


Maybe you prefer something more sunny and cheerful, then how about this lovely gift from Seniha, called Maddy Dress // Yellow? There are two versions included (v2 is with polka dots as seen on the right above) and they are each provided for Freya, Isis, Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya mesh bodies. I think of the style as a sundress because of the ruffles and layers, which makes the sunshine shade of yellow even more appropriate. 


For my final look of the evening, I am wearing two of the three versions included in the Ghoul gift called Iroe Play Dress - First Love. The main color is a delicate pink which is the 'solid' of the 3 versions: dark (black), mix (both, right above) and solid. Each of these come in Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya sizes, which all have that sheer black fishnet panel on the rear. I like the way the mix version provides contrast, a bit of edgy flair with the softness of the pink shade, so for today's mood that would be my choice. 

It has been a long day, and fairly busy, but I am ready to relax in SL later so that is a positive thing :) I wasn't feeling well earlier (stomach) but that is calmer tonight, for which I am very grateful. The next several days will be quiet in some ways, but that will give me time to do a few things in SL that I really need to like sorting my inventory. I think my folders and categories are too general so the folders contain too much, and I'm sure there are ancient items that can be deleted as well as some duplicates. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Group Gifts Galore

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I am excited to share some more group gifts for the FaMESHed 9th anniversary round. As I mentioned in my previous post, the group is free to join and most of the participating designers are offering a gift in a white box wrapped with a teal ribbon and bow. There is an impressive variety among the gifts, while I am focusing on the female fashions and a touch of accessories you can also find goodies for the guys and home decor. I also have a limited time offer for you from Entice, also a free group gift for Cinco de Mayo. This trio of t-shirts is fantastic for this time of year, so hurry on over!


My first look starts with the Valentina E. Martina Dress Dove gift, which is designed to fit the Maitreya mesh body. It is a column style with flattering seams, and the pale grey color has a silvery quality. I added a necklace from the ..::Supernatural::.. gift called Betina Necklace Fatpack, consisting of 4 metal combinations (silver/silver, silver/gold, gold/silver, gold/gold) and two gem HUDs with 34 lovely choices each. I gave a closer view on the right of the round cut gem that dangles from the chain attached to our heart closure, so pretty!


Purple is one of my favorite colors, so it was fun to pair two different shades in creating this look. The top is our gift from Ramen called ::RMN:: Harona Mini Top Purple -Lara- . It fits the Maitreya Lara mesh body and the style wraps to accentuate the cleavage just right. My pants are the Little Fox - Cassie - Knitted pants // plum gift, which look like an amazingly cozy pair of low rise leggings. They come in sizes for Freya, Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. 


Next I changed into the Charlotte Pink & Blue gift from Luas. The pink dress and blue belt (with straps that look like suspenders lowered to hang freely) are each provided in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite sizing. Since they are separate pieces, you can easily wear the dress without the belt if you prefer. I really like the way the skirt is gathered, and the peekaboo slit in the upper chest area for a flash of cleavage.


If you are still in the mood for pink, but had something even more flirtatious in mind, I suggest claiming the (*<*) 1313 Elena Set - Special Edition Gift from 1313 Mockingbird Lane. It consists of the sweater, skirt, and thong each in Legacy, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite sizing, with a fun HUD to change things up. There are 6 choices for the strap across the chest (labeled boobs) which are 3 solid and 3 lace, then 3 colors each for the thong waist, skirt bows, and skirt hearts. I am wearing the thong without the skirt on the right so you can get an idea of the versatility of this sexy gift.


Happy Cinco de Mayo! Over at Entice, we simply need their free group's tag to claim a three pack of seasonal cropped shirts. Their Cinco de Mayo 2021 - Tshirt is available until the 14th and includes the red and white versions above plus a black version (says Fiesta on the front) each sized for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya bodies. As a bird lover I am drawn to the sombrero wearing cutie on the white tee, and I am curious which ones I will see out and about on the grid :) Show me your favorite! The jeans are a free gift on the marketplace from Delizio that appear here on my blog fairly regularly, with several colors in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega. 

It was a decent day here, and the small birthday dinner earlier was very nice. The weather was warm and humid, so my naturally wavy hair is all sorts of freaky and frizzy, LOL, reminding me that I really need to find a hair product that works without costing an obscene amount. My stylist once recommended something that was over $50 for about 2 ounces, yikes! She normally doesn't push their products but I asked for a suggestion, which I rather regretted. Oh well, I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Happy Anniversary FaMESHed

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the 9th anniversary round of the FaMESHed event, where we can join their free group and claim lots of terrific gifts to help celebrate. The designers work hard to bring us carefully crafted mesh clothing, accessories, home and garden items, and more, and I am delighted to share their generosity as well. The gifts can be found in front of the displays in white giftboxes wrapped in their signature teal colored ribbon/bow, very pretty and dispense a gift with a click. There are two neighboring cam sims in case the main one is full (links here and here) so you can use your camera controls to zoom over and click all the boxes and do your shopping. There are so many wonderful gifts to share, let's get started!


First up, we have the sporty Neve - Free Gift - Peppermint outfit. The top and shorts each come in sizes for Legacy and Maitreya, with Legacy Perky and Maitreya Petite tops. There is also a HUD for the top that offers 4 colors for the shirt, 4 contrasting hues for the undershirt, and the ability to show/hide each layer. For the shorts there is also a HUD so you can choose from 4 colors each for shorts, trim, and drawstring, with buttons to hide the waistband or tie. Neve always provides such versatility with their HUDs and I love it!


I kept the Neve shorts on here, but changed into the gift from ERSCH called BamBam Top -bluemarble-. There are solid and sheer versions each in Freya, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya sizing. I am wearing the solid on the left and the sheer on the right, but there does not seem to be a huge difference maybe because of my lighting? I am a big fan of halter tops and this one gets extra points for the unique style. 


Next we see the Florence No. 1 gift from #AplBlossom, with two versions for you to choose from. Both the long and short versions of this white bodysuit with built in belt and lace skirt are included in Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing. Both styles have an athletic yet flirty feeling, don't you think?


Candy Kitten has a free treat for us too, their *CK* Never forget dress FAMESHED. It consists of the dress and lingerie each in sizes for Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies. I have to be honest, I will probably wear the lingerie as a swimsuit and wear the entire ensemble to a beach or pool, then slip out of the dress for my swim and sun time. 


For my final look of the evening I am enjoying the .Safira. Star Dress Mint gift. It is a sheer corseted mini with built in panties, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya bodies. The HUD lets you choose from color, silver, or gold stars (matching color on the left above, gold right) and 20 color choices for the panties. I also decided to accessorize with another gift, the .BF. Shanice Choker Gold from Beauty Factory. It includes one HUD with resize function and another HUD with 10 color options for the ribbon laced through the golden links, and I shared a closer view as the inset. 

I hope you are all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fabulously Free

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I popped on my "I Am Fabulous" group tag from the FabFree group and headed out to claim some more terrific gifts. There are so many participating designers that it seems the list is always being updated with something new, which is why I keep an eye on it and part of why the group has a permanent home among my precious group slots :) I have been a longtime fan and reader of their blog, so it is natural for me to be a part of their inworld representation too. There are fashion gifts for men and women, not to mention the accessories and home decor treats, so take a good look at the list on their website for all the details while I share a few of my favorite ladies' clothing here. 


My first look tonight is the LYBRA gift for FabFree called OCTOBER FATPACK. This flirty dress comes in sizes for Alice, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya bodies, with a daring slit on the right thigh that shows off our entire hip. There is also a HUD provided with 20 color choices each for the top and skirt portions, with an on/off option for the top in case you want to hide it :) I personally adore halter style necklines, and this wrapped one is a delight!


Telsiope's Couture is offering this beautiful Domino dress to all FabFree members. Its ethereal qualities make it a dreamy choice for a date night or special event. The dress comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya sizes, with a HUD to choose from 14 textures each for the tule (sheer top layer) and dress. The tule options are solid colors that go really well with the dress choices, which are a mix of solids and soft watercolor prints. 


Another elegant gift can be found at Lori's Threads, called [L.T] Valerie Dress - DUO - Ocean. This strapless mermaid gown has a built in belt with golden clasp, and the combo of black and teal are just lovely together. The gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. To claim it, please right click and pay, you will want the $1L choice not the $25L which is probably for non-group members. The $1L will be immediately refunded while the gift is delivered to you.


This past year or so has probably made all of us feel frustrated at one point or another, making the FabFree gift from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. especially appropriate. It is called The LET'S BE MERMAIDS Tee, and is located on the front of the store's counter. The saying on it is "I'm done adulting, let's be mermaids" with a pair of mermaid silhouettes to bring the point home. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizing. 


I'm not old. I've just been young for a very long time. At least that's what my new shirt says :) This is the clever No Shot gift called ~NS~ FabFree gift I'm not old T shirt, and it includes male and female sizing so just about everyone can enjoy. The ladies' sizes are for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature Alice, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP bodies. As with the prior gift above, I am wearing my favorite jeans with it which are a free gift found on the Marketplace. They are the Delizio jeans fatpack with several colors in system/BOM layers as well as Omega and Maitreya appliers. 

How was everyone's weekend? Mine was decent, and I enjoyed the visit to the farmers market even with the windy weather. I am making plans for the week that will include a family birthday celebration (total of 4 fully vaccinated people) at dinner Tuesday. I am looking forward to it, and I'm also looking forward to my next couple (few?) blog posts which you will see why soon enough ;) I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

ENERGY Weekend

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features some terrific group gifts from the ENERGY Weekend Price event's headquarters, where I eagerly joined their free group and claimed several clothing separates and outfits. Since the weekend is here, it seemed like great timing :) There are some hairstyle gifts too, but I was in the mood for some new clothing so that is my focus this evening. I really appreciate that this group gives us access to free gifts and helps us save money each weekend. 


My first look is a pairing of two gifts, the ENERGY Gift Top2 and the ENERGY Gift Skirt Makina. They each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and both include a HUD with 8 texture choices. I love being able to mix and match with the ease of HUDs, and I chose to wear these together because of the tiny bows on the front of each as a fun similarity. The bare shoulders and fluttery short hem add flirt factor as well.


There is something so cozy about a sweater dress, and the ENERGY Gift knitted dress is a delightful example of cozy mixed with sexy. This gift includes Legacy and Maitreya sizes of several different colors: blue, black, brown (left above), green, pink, red, violet (right), and white. There is an extra layer on each that is slightly sheer so it gives a fuzzy effect, and with the dress being as short as it is you could even wear it over jeans/pants as a long tunic. 


Next I changed into an outfit simply called ENERGY Group Gift, which consists of a top and skirt in matching colors. There are blue, red, and violet versions sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, and Hourglass bodies, and they are such deep dark shades that I honestly cannot tell if I changed from the red skirt to the violet like I meant to ;) The subtle texture makes me think of a moonless night, clouds lit only by a smattering of stars. I like the high neckline and knee length skirt being contrasted by the flash of midriff skin, it is modest yet alluring. 


It is no secret on my blog that I love denim, so you can imagine how pleased I am with this ENERGY# Gift - Dress. It consists of two versions, black and blue, both with the denim dress layered over a crisp white turtleneck. They both come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. 


For my final look of the evening, I paired up two more gifts that you could very easily wear together or match with anything you prefer. The top is called ENERGY Gift top, and it includes black, pink, and white versions each sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, and Maitreya bodies. The skirt is our ENERGY Gift Military Skirt, an adventurous style in Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. The skirt includes a HUD that offers 6 color choices, and each skirt texture has a coordinated belt/accessory color built in. I got Lara Croft Tomb Raider vibes from this look, despite being not all that familiar with her, but probably from the sporty feeling of that belt and the pockets. 

My weekend is off to a windy start, and I stayed home to avoid being out in 50 mph gusts but at least I still have power :) *knocks on wood* I will be going to the farmers market tomorrow since the storm should be passing in the next few hours, leaving a chilly but sunny morning. No blog post tomorrow evening as I am taking the night off, but I will be back Sunday with something new for May I would imagine. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
