Shopping and Hopping

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I chose the Snowflake region from the SL19B Shop and Hop, one of 20 regions filled with designers' displays where we can find exclusive sales, discounts, and free gifts. The various gifts are the focus of tonight's post, as I have selected a handful to share that I hope will tempt you into visiting :) I have seen two different ending dates for the event, the 5th or the 10th of July, so I am guessing we have at least a week left to explore all the wonders that SL19B has to offer.


My first look this evening is the neve gift - sl19b love. This outfit is a shirt and shorts linked together as one piece, in sizes for Freya, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. The HUD brings the magic with 4 options each for the shirt and shorts, with the ability to hide either piece so you can wear with something else or play a naughty game of peekaboo with that special someone ;) The top has a swirly line that works its way into the word "love" on the left side, in a rainbow of colors on the black background color as a nod to pride.


Speaking of pride, I also picked up a wonderful gift from .PrettyDeceased. called Mar Bodysuit Pride Edition. The rainbow-drenched bodysuit has full ruffles on both hips, and the top is framed with metal to surround the (optional) starfish pasties. The suit and pasties each come in Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Reborn mesh bodies, and there is a HUD with 3 metal colors (silver, gold, black) and 4 transparency options for the ruffles. So sexy!


Next I tried on two different gifts that are both lovely tops :) On the left is the adorsy - Joudy Top SL19B Gift, which is a boat neck top in soft pink that reads "simply adorable adorsy". There are sizes for Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite sizes via an unpacker HUD that lets you decide which size/s you want delivered instead of having all of them in your inventory. This is helpful if you stick to one or two mesh bodies like I do, but have dozens of different sizes you might never wear. Then I changed into the Manikin - Q-Tees - Aloha - SL19B Gift on the right, a tighter cropped style with similar edges and a deep red color. There is an arrow pointing right, then the wording "ALOHA Summer" with the O replaced by a hibiscus flower. This treat includes Kupra, Kups, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh body sizing. Both of these work really well with the white Delizio jeans from their fatpack that is free on the marketplace. 


This colorful beauty is the RosenRot - Gisela Dress - Gift, a mini dress whose halter strap connects to a vertical strand and two horizontal bra straps in the back for a fascinating look. It is provided in eBody Reborn, Erika, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Petite mesh body sizing. With all those fun colors, it will go with so many different shoe shades and any jewelry that makes you smile. Personally I think a bangle bracelet or bold solid colored earrings will do the trick. 


My final look of the night comes from KEY STYLE, their elegant vintage styled gift called MADAMOISELLE OUTFIT. The shirt and skirt each come in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with flat shoes to fit Maitreya and Slink feet. The hat seen here is also included, in all its wide brimmed, floral decorated glory, and a matching umbrella can complete your look if you wish. 

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

ACCESS Anniversary Gifts

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we head to the ACCESS Event, whose current round is their 4th anniversary celebration. That means lots of free group gifts from many of the participating designers, including several for the guys so be sure to share that information with anyone you know who wears a male avatar. This round is open until the 8th of July, so you have time to visit and pick up some demos (and those group gifts!) then return to do some shopping. All of our group gifts are inside teal giftboxes with black ribbons, and the ACCESS group is free to join so they won't cost you a single linden. 


First I tried on the beautifully flirty Diversion - Nixie Mini Dress - Gift. This strapless mini has a sheer embroidered bodice and flared skirt that is dusted with golden stars. It is provided in Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, and Reborn mesh body sizes. I really enjoy the combination of dark purple and gold!


I also found a wonderful gift at the ERSCH display, their -KrissDress-blue-. There are sizes for Freya Perky, Kupra, Kups, Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya mesh bodies included, with a very generous HUD for the right side. This HUD offers 88 different colors, so the portion of the top can be nearly any shade you can think of :) The chic style is complemented by the versatility of being able to change colors with a simple click.


I noticed quite a few tops among the generous gifts, so I changed into the white pair of Delizio jeans (free marketplace fatpack) and dove into the tops! On the left I am enjoying the Palette - Millie [Peach] tank top, whose very cute cropped style comes in Kupra, Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya mesh bodies via unpacker HUD. This way you only need to deliver the size/s you will use, instead of having a bunch of extras in your inventory. Then we see the Aury T-shirt // Yellow gift from Seniha. on the right, with kitty ears and whiskers on the words "GOOD meowning". The gift includes sizes for Kupra, Legacy, Legacy Petite, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies, with a 30 color HUD for the tag on the left sleeve. You can see it in teal above, which I chose because of ACCESS's signature color.


Next we have the "Off-Line" x "Nats" Crop Top / Fatpack, a generous collaborative group gift. The top has a plunging squared neckline and pert collar, and is provided for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Reborn mesh bodies. The HUD offers 28 fun colors, so you can pick your favorite shade or match a wide range of pants and skirts. 


My final look of the evening is another top with lots of possibilities, the "Nomi" Harness Top - Purple from Asteria. The harness portion is attached to a bra top and has heart shaped clasps both front and back, with draped fringe on the bottom layer. It includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies, with a HUD for the bra with 8 colors and the option to hide it entirely. As a huge fan of purple, I would say this might be my favorite among all the gifts if I absolutely had to choose just one. The good news is that I don't have to :) 

It was a weird day, dealing with a stubborn family member who was making the weekend plans a bit difficult, but I think things are mostly settled now. This time the troublemaker was my dad, who wants to decide what everyone else is allowed to eat on Friday and then 'borrow' my houseguest to help him with a computer problem. That second part is still to be determined, between houseguest and my father, as I am not loaning out my friend like a lawnmower. Oh well, I am still very excited about the upcoming weekend and just keeping my fingers crossed that it all goes smoothly. Tomorrow I will have more SL19B treats to share, I just wanted to mix things up for the sake of variety. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Flirty Shop and Hop

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the Dahlia region of the SL19B Shop and Hop event, one of 20 regions packed with vendors for a total of 400 participants. Pretty much all of them have gifts for us too, ranging from clothing to accessories to home decor or even store credit so you can choose your own treats :) I try to stick to just one region at a time to keep things relatively organized, and you can start in any one of them and work your way through the giant loop to eventually visit all of them.


My first look is our gift from Faida, called Uma floral. This lovely dress comes in sizes for Kupra, Kups, Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Flat, and Maitreya Petite mesh bodies. The crossed straps in the back are a great touch, and I am a huge fan of floral patterns so this gift immediately made me smile.


Next I slipped into the + Fallen Gods Inc. + Pixie outfit, rainbow gift. There are male and female versions with the main difference being the upper portion in addition to the lower. These delicate wings come in system/BOM layers of various types, and we can wear the top and bottom separately if we wish. The coloring looks magical, and the rear view of the bottom reveals a thong style to really show off the bum cheeks. 


Another seductive gift is the !dM "Thetis" SL19BIRTHDAY GIFT from deviousMind. The top, bottom, and pasties are each provided in gold and pearl versions that fit the Maitreya mesh body, and an extra pair of unrigged pasties in each coloring. I am wearing the gold on the left above and the pearl on the right, so you can see the differences particularly the hue of one of the pearl strands. The back view is pretty much just strands of pearls, so it is very revealing! We don't have to be mermaids to enjoy this gift, but it sure makes me feel like one :)


One of Grumble's gifts for us is this charming Roxie Dress-Unicorn. It fits Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Minim mesh bodies. The magenta mini dress is gathered on both sides and imprinted with striking artwork of a unicorn surrounded by greenery and blossoms. 


I think I forgot to mention last night that the theme of this year's event is Steampunk, as many of the offerings do not stick to the optional theme. However, my final look of the evening certainly does! It is the gift from .::BE BOLD::. called Steam Cat, and it is an entire generous outfit. The dress and boots come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The gloves fit Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique hands, and we can wear the provided leather collar and mask on nearly any body/head since they both have resize scripts built in to adjust. On the right I am wearing just the dress and boots without the gloves, collar, or mask, so you can see another possible way to wear it.

It was a quiet day which suits me just fine, and I am making plans for the long weekend when I will have a houseguest :) There are two people who occasionally stay here, one I get along with very well and one I do not, so I am relieved that it is the "good one" this time. I don't have to hide, LOL, and I get to be a part of the plans, so it is a positive thing to look forward to. I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Shop and Hop SL19B

 Hiya everyone! Tonight it is time to head over to the SL19B Shop and Hop, a massive celebration of the 19 wonderful years that Second Life has been in existence. SL19B stands for Second Life 19th Birthday, and I highly recommend checking out the destination guide for details of the festivities. There are 20 regions filled with 400 designers' displays, all of which have a free gift waiting for us among many discounted and exclusive offers for sale. I randomly chose one of those regions to share gifts from tonight, so we are exploring the Hollyhock treats in this post :) I enjoyed every single area I visited, and will continue to share goodies from various regions of the event until it closes its doors in early July.


First we have the charming Entice - Summer Baby 2 - Aqua gift, one of the softest looking lingerie sets I've seen in SL. The bra top and delicately tied bottoms with ruffled legs are each included in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite body sizes, and the color calls to mind an ocean view. So romantic!


Not to be outdone, Salt & Pepper brings the romance too with their gift called S & P Elena FATPACK. The bare shouldered dress has full sleeves with the same open weave lace as our skirt, and there is an attached belt gently cinching the waist. The dress comes as an unpacker HUD with eBody Reborn, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite buttons, each of which will deliver a folder with the corresponding size and the color HUD so you don't need to unpack all the various sizes but can if you wish with the "all" button. The color HUD offers 16 choices each for the main dress and the belt/accent on different tabs, so you can mix and match as I have above. The trim is on the shoulders and the stripe down each side of the skirt.


[P.S.] has a lovely gift for us too, their Three-tiered frills mini dress. It fits Legacy and Maitreya mesh bodies, with a strapless sweetheart neckline and black lace overlay on a pale sunshine yellow fabric. The two lacy selections in a row are a coincidence but one I enjoy since I have always been drawn to the intricate details of a finely wrought lace. 


Next we visit the Gabrielle Hamelin display, where we can claim their charming {GH} Lili Flower Top SLB 19 gift. This versatile bare shouldered blouse has detached ruffle sleeves and a very loose fit to its cropped bodice, and is provided in a fitmesh M size as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body sizes. There is also a HUD that lets us choose a transparency level (I reduced it on the right but it is subtle) and click a different tab with 72 colors to tint the floral fabric. It probably won't surprise regular readers here that I am also wearing a pair of the Delizio jeans fatpack we can find for free on the marketplace, as they are frequently seen here to provide bottoms for various tops ;)


My final look this evening is a pair of playful swimsuits from [RNK] called Frilled Bikini Watermelon. The red and yellow versions are both worn as one piece, each in sizing for Legacy and Maitreya bodies. The little seed pattern is adorable, and the green trim representing watermelon rind is a clever detail. I am very curious about yellow watermelon, as I have only encountered it in SL so far and not RL, but it sounds delicious! From what I read it is a little sweeter than red watermelon and has a honey-like flavor, yum :)

Did I just blink and the weekend flew by? LOL! I was going to do some inventory sorting and maintenance, but only got a tiny bit done so that is still an ongoing challenge. Saturday morning was sunny and hot for the farmers market, so going early was a good idea to avoid the midday heat. One of the regular vendors brought his son's dog, a cuddly chocolate lab, and she was in heaven getting so much attention. I got some tasty food, and am ready for what might be a fairly quiet week before a busy weekend. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Summer Carnival at Malus Park

 Hiya everyone! Tonight you are cordially invited to the Summer Carnival shopping event at the beautiful Malus Park. There are exclusive offers at every display, with discounted items and a gift for $25L or less from each designer. The entire region looks fantastic as always, and I may have nibbled on a free hot dog while exploring ;) There are so many ways here to refresh your seasonal wardrobe and your living space, and the event lasts until the 2nd of July so you can visit anytime before then.


My first look is our exclusive offer from HORL, their Nih Top which is definitely a harbinger of the season :) The sexy draped tube top comes in sizes for eBody Reborn, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Petite mesh bodies. I really like the fun pattern on the satiny fabric, bold artwork with words like summer and sweet. This treat is $150L and only found here at the Summer Carnival.


I also gladly visited The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co.'s stand, where $120L will get us their exclusive SUMMER SMILES Tees trio. The comfy looking tank top is provided in standard mesh sizes along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions, and there is a HUD with 3 texture options. Two of those can be seen above, like the "Smile" whose letter I has been replaced with a cheerful daisy, or the neon gradient palm trees and waves that say "Take your summer" beneath. 


Don't leave that kiosk just yet, or you might miss out on the $20L exclusive offer called The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. LEMONADE Tee. It comes in the same sizes as the previous one I shared, with an image that reads "ice cold lemonade" above a bright yellow lemon wedge and a couple splashes of juice. Doesn't fresh lemonade sound really good right now? For these first three photos, I am wearing the blue pair of jeans from the Delizio fatpack that is free on the marketplace and appears here quite often...there are several shades in system/BOM layers and appliers for Maitreya and Omega. 


While summer lends itself to casual looks quite well, we also deserve some new dresses for special occasions, and I'd like to recommend this gorgeous free gift! It is the ***LURE*** dress Aurora - RED and is free in their event gift box. The shimmery metallic fabric is gathered flirtatiously in the front of the deep plunging skirt, and that halter style is certain to help you feel extra sexy too. Our gift includes eBody Reborn, Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya mesh body sizing.


For my final look this evening I decided that we needed some versatile jewelry. Fortunately Blink2Wink is ready to help us with their $90L exclusive offer of Starfish Earrings. These charming pair of earrings has a built in resize script with preset sizes like S, M, L, then bigger or smaller buttons to adjust those even more. There is also a great texture HUD provided so we can select from 6 glittery colors or 6 polka dotted patterns, and 3 metal tones for the hooks. Personally I am a fan of both the glitter and the polka dots, and think either will go really well with most of my wardrobe favorites. The speckled glimmer makes me think of sand and the sun reflecting off the ocean, and polka dots have a classic retro vibe that I have always been partial to.

Hooray for the weekend! I am looking forward to a visit to my favorite local farmers market as usual, and will probably relax as much as possible on Sunday. I'll be watching at least one more episode of Stranger Things, and that is all I really have planned so far. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Womenstuff Treats

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features a few more Womenstuff Hunt 2022 prizes, all of which are free and can be found inside red t-shirts at each participating store. There are hints in local chat shortly after we land, which is helpful especially when some of the shirts are shrunken down to a fairly small size. There is a HUD to help us teleport from stop to stop available for members of the Womenstuff group ($50L to join) at their headquarters or you can use this list to navigate the hunt path. With over 100 designers taking part in this round, it is a veritable smorgasbord of fantastic free gifts! 


My first look of the evening is a flirty full outfit from Composer Girls Fashion called !CGF-*Carmela* Dress Outfit. It starts with the lace topped dress in standard mesh sizes as well as versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. There is a crotch panty (C-string, no straps) in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing that provides a touch of modesty. Then we can add a pair of strappy sandals, which fit Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique feet. Our final touches are the silver earrings and the bracelet for the right wrist, for a bit of shimmery jewelry that completes the look beautifully. I am a big fan of CGF for the fact that most of their offerings are complete outfits like this, with footwear and carefully selected accessories.


If you want to look stunning in purple, be sure to find the t-shirt at the Swank Event itself (first stop) offered by ADDOR. Their Edita Gown Maitreya - WS Hunt 2022 includes two versions, with the lace one on the right above displaying a revealing bodice. This satiny halter top with mermaid styling fits the Maitreya mesh body as indicated in the name. 


Nothing says summer quite like a swimsuit, so I was very happy to find the gift at Paper.Sparrow called Michelle Bikini. It has the appearance of two pieces from behind but one from the front, and I love the way the sides are held together with playful ties! Our prize includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies, all with that pale yellowish green cow print that really caught my eye.


I do appreciate denim in any form, so I'm definitely grateful for the EC Raz Romper Blue Denim Sheer prize from Emerald Couture. There are standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body versions. The sheer panels down each side are alluring touches, as are the bare shoulders and detached sleeves whose ruffles match the bodice.


For my final look this evening, I chose the prize from Wilson's Closet called Elenore - pink. This lovely long sleeved turtleneck dress has a built in belt and full short skirt that flares out at each hip. It is included in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique body sizing. The soft color is perfectly contrasted by the slender black belt, and if you wanted to wear it in the winter too I would recommend adding a pair of black tights beneath. 

My day was a decent one, since I didn't have to go anywhere which meant I had time to watch another episode of Stranger Things, the 4th of this season. There was some gore, but also a couple of emotional situations that had me teary. Underneath the supernatural and scary stuff, there is a theme of the power of friendship and overcoming being an outcast, so that speaks to me pretty deeply. Tomorrow I will be having dinner at my parents' as usual for Fridays, so it should be a fun evening :) I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Womenstuff Variety

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I selected a handful of free Womenstuff Hunt 2022 prizes to share, as I still have so many that I want all of you to see :) We have over a week left to hunt, but with over 100 stores participating it seems like you should probably start soon if you haven't already. The headquarters for the Womenstuff hunt group ($50L to join) has a free HUD for group members, or you can use this list that has all the locations. The prizes are hiding in red t-shirts with the hunt's logo on it in white, and when you arrive at each store you will be greeted with the hint in local chat within a minute or two depending on lag. I was grateful to have Xan's help with this hunt, as our teamwork in such things tends to be very effective (each taking one half of a large store, or analyzing the hint differently, etc.) but that does not mean that you can't handle it on your own :) I am so happy that this hunt has been revived after a year off and changing management, as I truly missed it.


My first look this evening is the striking ~*MF*~ Hey, There, VooDoo Gown from Mishmash Fusion. There are sizes for Alice, Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Petite, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies included. The gown has a deep plunging V neckline, and the full skirt is adorned with sketches of skulls and ferns. 


Next we slip into a bold burst of color, thanks to the Tamiron Forge gift called FIONA Dress. This long gathered maxi dress has an ombre of teal to purple, with ruffled sleeves and bare shoulders that give a summery flavor. This prize comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes. The gold trim is another beautiful touch, just like the deep purple of the attached sash belt.


BlueMoon enterprise has a charming prize called BMe Daisy Dress Maitreya that makes me think of a fairy playing in a field of flowers. As that name implies, it has been crafted to fit the Maitreya Lara body perfectly, and has a fun combo of floral patterned fabric and creamy lace layers. The handkerchief hem reminds me of a blossom's petals, so all the details just add up to a delightful prize.


I think this prize from DM:: called Dress And Jacket - Dream is utterly adorable on top of being a versatile choice for a summer outing. The cropped jacket and tight strapless mini are each provided in sizing for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies. The unicorn shares the same cute expression as the cloud floating above it, and the front says "Enjoy and Dream" which is a sentiment I can happily endorse.


My final look tonight is the flirty Kathy Purple Lily by COVETED!. The off-shoulder buttoned dress has a built in harness type belt in a deep purple hue that really brings out the shades of the same color in the lilies. It fits Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The dress is just short enough that it could double as a long top in cooler weather, just add your favorite pants or skirt beneath if you wish. I tend to look for alternative styling potential to highlight versatility, not to take away from the intended wear by the designers :) 

It was a fairly busy day, thanks to a chiropractic appointment and some other errands that had me stopping at several stores. The weather stayed decent until I got home, cloudy and humid but not actively raining yet like it is now. I heard one loud clap of thunder during dinner, but fortunately that hasn't returned. All this means I have not finished Stranger Things yet, just 3 episodes in, but I expect to watch another one tomorrow. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
