This and That

Hiya everyone! I have just a few things to share with you for tonight, as we gear up for a new month and all the things that means in SL...new hunts, monthly group gifts, that sort of goodness. For today, let's start out with a look at a beautiful group gift.

This is one of those amazing dresses that you just have to get a look at front and back! If you love it as much as I do, head on over to Braham Design and join their group for free, and right there at the front door you'll see this beauty. It comes with the earrings shown, they were both set for the right ear so I had to attach one to the left ear and adjust it all around, and it comes with 2 large rings that I couldn't quite get adjusted to my satisfaction so I left them off. I think they were both left hand rings so I switched one to the right. This dress is HOT!

Then I checked back in at the Kiyomizu Mall, and found out that several stores had been added to that spring hunt since last I looked. This jacket, which comes in mens and womens versions, is from #85 Miyabi. Such a subtle pattern on the jacket, and that regal dragon on the back is the perfect touch. Then I peeked in my folder and realized there were a couple others I never showed you...
I know that the colors don't match, strictly speaking, but this is 2 different hunt gifts and it was easiest to show you this way :) The top is from #50 Pulcino, a very pretty sweater with an adorable heart design. The skirt is from store #1 in the hunt, M.I.X., and is a simply gorgeous color with a versatile style to pair with your favorite tops.

My nails in these photos are a marketplace freebie, and even though they only indicated being for hands, they did appear on my toes as well. I think that's from the newest Slink foot update. I am still wearing, and getting used to, my Slink hands that I bought yesterday. There are still moments I wonder if I chose the right pose (soooo many to choose from!), and sometimes the immobile fingers strike me as odd, but they are definitely pretty in general. Well, it is time for the credits, wishing you all a magical day!!

Nails Nails Nails!

Hiya everyone! Well I put off a hunt a bit longer than I meant to, and now there's only one day remaining but I'm still showing you some of the goodies from it. The hunt is the Apply Your Body Hunt, and your first thought might be well Dawn, you don't have a mesh body or 'bits' like boobs or butt, just the Slink feet...that is mostly true, but I finally gave in and got a set of Slink hands. I can't seem to get a clear answer about if/when their nails are ever going to be updated, and I have some HUDs that won't work on them, so it was just time. I figured out how to use the HUD to do a different manicure on each fingernail, that was fun and kept me busy for a bit ;) There are plenty of pretty nails in this hunt, so let's have a peek at a few...

First we have the fantastic gift from Koffin Nails, which is called 80's Neon Lights and I agree, it reminds me of laser shows from a nightclub I used to dance at on teen nights :) I could have played with these all day, too fun! This is #15 in the hunt.

Similarly adorned with streaks in dark and light colors, these beauties are from La Boheme who are #18 in the hunt. Included are HUDs called Whiplash1 and Whiplash2, in fingernails and toenails, so you can come up with the perfect combination for your mood or outfit.

How about some pretty pastels? This HUD from Hello Dave is called Easter Sweets, but with 25 amazing colors to mix and match, you can create the perfect manicure for any season. Hello Dave is #34 in this hunt.

Last but certainly not least, we have #27 *InkHeart* with their playful I Am A Star manicure. I really want to practice stamping in RL a bit so I can recreate these on my own real live nails ;) I don't think I could freeform a star like that, my hands simply aren't that steady, and we don't have the convenience (yet?) in RL of using a HUD like this to make our nails look this fantastic. But look how great your SL nails can look! :)

I am sorry for waiting so long to do/blog this hunt, but if you hurry you can still pick up these goodies and many more. There are lots of photos on the hunt blog so you can always pick and choose the ones you want the most. Enjoy and have a magnificent day!!

All Prizes from the Apply Your Body Hunt:

Blasts From the Past

Hiya everyone! With my wonderful partner's help, I zipped through a really fun hunt in one shot, and you get to see some of the goodies from it! These prizes are all from the Blast From The Past Hunt, all free and can be found in a record album. Some of those albums were hidden very cleverly :)

We start our blasting off to the past with the beautifully textured tunic from Siren's Moon #9, their 60s dress and boots are included. I accessorized it with the prize from !IT! #12, their adorable Boho headband. It's adjustable with a size menu, so I did make it bigger. I liked mixing the decades just a bit.

This stunning flashback is from *MoSt* who are #7 in the hunt, and you already know from previous blogs that I love this style. The colors and pattern certainly give it a fun retro feel.

Another fantastic style, this cutie is from PS! Perfect Seduction! which is the start of our hunt as well as the organizer. The poodle skirt is just too precious, and the accent flower is fantastic, you don't even need a necklace with this.

If you do fancy a necklace however, hehe, be sure to visit store #3 RedRose Jewellery for this beauty, full of powerful symbols of peace. The mesh tie-dye shirt is the prize from Cobra Team Store, #10 in the hunt, and they do have a matching t-shirt for the men also.

I hope you've all enjoyed your weekend, mine started rough but ended wonderfully so it's all good. Wishing you all lots of magpie magic!!

More Spring has Sprung

Hiya everyone! I had much better luck with the second half of the Spring Has Sprung hunt, so I have a few goodies to share with all of you from it :)

First of all I can't help but mention my eyes...my usual brown peepers have a temporary makeover thanks to #21 in this hunt, InkHeart. These are their beautiful Fantasy eyes, and I am wearing the mesh in size L. For this lovely warm weather outfit including those great shoes for Slink high feet, you'll want to visit store #17 Prevail. The outfit is named Sara, cropped vest and mini skirt along with the shoes.

More stunning aqua, this time in a sexy tank top from #26 Ayva's Attic. I just realized that this is the same store I blogged from the 70s Hunt and showed the front and back of that outfit so you could see the tail on the tank top, well this shirt is the same design in a different texture. This color really makes those eyes pop!

Finally we have this adorable dress from FashionNatic, #33 in the hunt, and I am loving the ruffles on the neckline as well as the color combination. I think I have a manicure (first life) pinned on pinterest with this exact design, brown background with pink polka dots. Speaking of manicures...

I know they were hard to see in my photos, but these are the gorgeous gifts from La Boheme, #32 in this hunt. I figured a screenshot of the HUDs would be the best way to show them off to you :) Every time I see La Boheme as a destination in a hunt, it makes me extra excited!

My day did not go as planned due to another illness (not my own) so I am creating my own happiness and reasons to smile in any way I can. I actually quite enjoy the challenge of finding pleasure, reasons to smile, in the most ordinary of situations. Sending weekend hugs to everyone!!

More Glimpses of Spring

Hiya everyone! I have some more hunt treasures to share with you, from the enMESHed into Spring hunt, and I hope you are enjoying them :)

I went with the current Midnight Mania prize from Alice Project for my hair, and chose the strawberry blonde shade from the many available on the HUD. This first dress is the very pretty prize from OMG! Inc, who is #28 in the hunt, and it comes with a HUD to change among 6 different colors. The necklace is from Indulge Temptation! (!IT!) and they are #37 in the hunt.

These beautiful flowers definitely remind me of spring, and the heart shaped cutout in the front is a very sweet touch! You'll want to visit store #24 Aftertaste if you'd like to pick this up for yourself :)

#34 in the hunt is Loordes of London, and they have included both this lovely dress and the matching earrings for us. Pastels definitely do have a spring vibe, and I'd say the ruffles do too.

This next store is called My Dirty Mind, which made me giggle (I am sometimes guilty of having one myself!) but the prize brought on a huge smile. Lovely mesh dress, separate butterfly attachment for the neckline, and I love the colors and the lace. You could even use this as a wedding gown, maybe an outdoor spring ceremony? This store is #31.

You know by now how much I love cute things, so it's no surprise that Black Gold Design #36 made me squee! A bunny patting a chick, who says 'peep peep!!' in reaction?! Easter is almost here so I'll be sure to wear this later in the week :)

I have a very exciting Saturday planned, a visit from my best friend for the first time in several months (thanks weather and illnesses for preventing that one) so I'm thrilled and just so grateful for her friendship and for any chance to spend time with her. Nothing like a treasured friend to make my heart smile. I am wishing for all of you, that you have something this weekend that makes you happy too!!

Enmeshed Deeper Into Spring

Hiya again everyone! I have some more goodies from the enMESHed Into Spring hunt to share with you, and because I was feeling in a 'pastel' sort of mood, I slipped into my LNS lucky chair hair as well as several wonderful prizes.

Starting off, we have prize #8 from B&T Mesh Studio, a very pretty pencil skirt that can be paired with either the matching shirt on the left, or the sweater on the right. I accessorized it with an adorable necklace from Gachapon! who are #10 in the hunt, and then decided you truly need a closer look at this one...
Yes, that is a sweet little duckling swimming inside your umbrella necklace, and it comes with a HUD to change the umbrella to a few different patterns and the chain can be gold or silver. So much detail in something so tiny!

It may be hard to persuade me to take this dress off, it's just that pretty. From the fluttery skirt to the ruched bodice and beautiful colors, this just blew me away. Thanks to #6 Fi's Creations for this amazing prize!

If you're looking for something casual that still says spring, this is a perfect choice. Ayva's Attic is lucky #13 in this hunt, and give you this mesh shirt and shorts in several sizes each. Mix and match with other goodies in your wardrobe, or just soak in the floral pattern in all its glory.

Finally, try not to get confused that store #20 in the hunt is called 20.FIVE :) It is an outlet store of Ducknipple clothing where all the items are $25L so the name does make sense. Their generous gift is this flirty romper in several colors: Baby (shown), Blue, Green, Lime, and Red. Each has a contrasting color striped top attached. There's the hard part, choosing the color!

My nails in all pictures are from a marketplace freebie from Hello Dave, and if you click the link for them in the credits, be sure to check their marketplace store for a few other nice freebies as well. You never know what you'll find in the marketplace :) 

Have a fantastic day, wishing everyone love and joy!!

Enmeshed into Spring

Hiya everyone! After some more hunting adventures that didn't quite pan out, I decided to get a small start on a different hunt, Enmeshed into Spring. I do adore spring fashions and almost always wear mesh, so it's right up my alley. There aren't many prize previews on their site, so I'm hoping that it will be helpful if I give you all a peek :)

Prize #1 from AdelleArts almost looks like it could be from the 70s hunt! The dress and boots are included in several sizes each, so you can find a great fit for your shape. I think I'm wearing the small dress and the medium boots.

Oohh sexy! This is actually one piece even though it looks like it could be a separate blouse and skirt, so props to Wicked Sin Creations (#2 in the hunt) for making this both beautiful and convenient. 

I know the hunt is for spring, but this outfit will happily see you well into the summer and beyond if you'd like. This is #3 in the hunt, by ::Naked:: and includes the adorable ruffled top and the lil short shorts with attached belt. So much fun!

*Squees uncontrollably* How cute is this prize? First I put on the dress, and thought oh wow that's cute...then I decided to try on the included sock layer to see what that was (no picture in the box, no explanation in the sock layer name) and thought WOW sweet! By the time I turned around and saw the back, I was completely in cute overload :) This is the prize from #5 in the hunt, Les sucreries de Fairy, and obviously I am head over heels for this one! The sides of the armholes are cut fairly low, so to make it a bit more modest I might throw a short sleeve system layer shirt under it, depending on what I'll be doing and where. Mostly what I'll be doing is squeeing though ;)

My nails in all the photos are from a VIP group gift from Hello Dave, which is not a free group to join but VERY worth it. I know I've mentioned them before, I'm not affiliated with them in any way (or any other designer I've blogged) simply a fan :) Weekly gifts, all previous ones available at the store, it's well worth it in my view.

Well it is credits time, hope everyone is having a good week thus far, and that your first and second life are each treating you well :) Hugs to all!!

Few Quick Things

Hiya everyone! I just have a few goodies to share with you tonight, no real theme or anything, just random magpie treasures :)

Do you need a cute (and free) way to welcome spring? This is Basta's prize for the Spring Has Sprung hunt, which I tried to start this morning but the very first stop thwarted me. I did have the LMs from their blog to get me past, it was just discouraging and took up most of my hunting time. I had to soothe myself with retail therapy, LOL, so that explains my new Magika hair :) Not free, still worth every linden to make me smile. This dress however IS free and they are #3 in that hunt. I had to show the back view so you could see how adorable those bright floral patches are! They're like pockets but not quite. The flowers across the neckline are attached too, so this dress clearly has lots of great details.

Now for a bit of Midnight Mania...this is the latest treat from Entice, it's called Jealous and comes with the matching leaf bracelets. Fun and free, and no need to dig in your inventory for ages to find accessories, can't go wrong. No group needed for this MM board by the way, they do have a group-only board also but their group is free to join if you're so inclined.

Finally this is a prize from the Kiyomizu Hunt I'd blogged about a few times already. I stopped back and clicked one of the big hanging boxes in their shopping center (walk on the roads between shops and look up) and the site it took me to showed me which I'd missed, and there were some added since I last checked. This is the gift from .::&Y::. at their mainstore (not the Kiyomizu branch) and is #83 in that hunt. I love that it's bright and cheery, yet the solid color allows for lots of accessorizing if you want to, or you can leave it more simple depending on your mood.

I am hopeful that later when I login to SL, I'll have a more successful attempt at that Spring has Sprung hunt. I'm also considering a trip to a gacha yardsale or two :) Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far, sending magical magpie hugs!!

So Many Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! Have you ever pondered how many groups there are, and how many generous designers give those groups special gifts? I know that for most of us, group slots are a tricky thing to manage...so many groups cost to join, and we are so painfully limited to those 42...but there are some I would never dream of giving up, free or not, and I do keep a couple of empty 'emergency' slots. I hope you do too, because now I'm going to show you some lovely group gifts!

If you've been around a while, you might recall Lestat Reuven as being a part of Lemania Indigo's periodic simwide hunts, and then Lestat changed her store name to Siss Boom, then it was closed/reopened several times...the good news is that it is back, across the way from Lemania Indigo's new store Lemonicity. If you join Siss Boom's free group, you too can receive this gorgeous dress with the marvelous hemline! Big fan of the color too, but you don't have to be a redhead to look beautiful in this dress :)

For another very pretty dress, I headed to JayGee and picked up several free group gifts. It is free to join, and there are several available gifts to pick up including this one, Anna, in both pink (shown) and red. These are such generous gifts, several are fat packs of dresses! Lots of goodies for group members in the areas with the group gifts, too, like lucky chairs and a midnight mania and a lucky cupcake and more.

The details on this one, so wonderful! From the color to the texture to the shoulder bows, this is just an amazing dress and even comes with an optional flexi over-skirt which is not shown in this photo. This is from Azul, but you'll have to join the free SLF&O group and wear their tag to get it. There is a joiner right there, so it's simple and soooo worth it.

Speaking of simple, this dress is elegant in its simplicity, and comes with a HUD to change among 4 textures in the same color family including a solid version of the base color. Another SLF&O gift, this is from Karla Boutique.

How adorable is this outfit? The glasses are a delightful touch :) This is one of many available group gifts from GAALL, and I just loved the details and the fun colors. The group is free to join also, no need to hesitate at all!

One last photo is actually a screenshot of the nail HUD I've been using for all these photos, the SLF&O group gift from Hello Dave. Now please bear in mind the Hello Dave group itself isn't free to join, but gives weekly gifts, so I'm a big fan of that group as well. But your SLF&O tag is the one you need to get these gorgeous nails for free:
They look incredible on the stiletto shaped nails for your Slink hands, but as you can see they certainly cute on the other settings. Really nice colors too!

Well it's time for the credits so you can go pick up your own bonanza of group gifts as well :) Oh before I do that, let me mention that even the hair I'm wearing is a LeLutka group gift I've blogged previously. Wishing everyone a beautiful day full of magic!!

Feelin' Outta Sight!

Hiya again everyone! I feel like I need to listen to some funky 70s tunes while I show you more goodies from The 70s Hunt. My vibe is somewhere between disco and classic rock when I think of that era, and my dad was/is a Beatles fan so I enjoy them too. How about you? :) Ooohh flashback...as a teenager I used to go to a pizza place with my best friend a few nights a week just to hang out, and I'd play lots of Doors on the jukebox, so okay time to groove to some Light My Fire! Meanwhile...

This outfit could sure light someone's fire! This daring shirt and skirt are from Ayva's Attic, #38 in the hunt. I did the back/side view so you could see the cute tail the shirt has in the back, but it also serves to show you that the sideboob is strong with this one, LOL! Since that's a mangling of a Star Wars quote and the movies started in the 70s, that's on theme, right? :) I really love the design on the shirt, the tree is so clever. The hair is part of the very generous gift from Alli&Ali Designs, who are #26 in the hunt, and that is Kitty Hair Sahara. You'll see more from that gift in the rest of the post.

I found this ancient pose in my inventory from several years ago and it just suited things too well. Here we have #41 from Kelli Kreations, which includes the shirt, pants, sunglasses, and shoes for Slink high. I had a lot of trouble with this outfit for some reason, the alpha for the top only covers the nipples so the underneath of my breasts were hanging out through the mesh when I stood still, and you can see my poor Slink foot (ankle really) fighting with the flair of the pant leg. My right hip, photo left, you can see the alpha even though I tried every size of the mesh pants to try to hide it completely. It is a shame because I really like the idea of the matching pattern on the shirt and shoes, and the generosity to include everything she did is terrific :) My hair is another A&A from their gift, called Ludvika Hair Russet. 

This dress is fantastic, very much what I picture from this theme with the fun pattern. It is the prize from #32 Sweet Tea, and I'd have to say is one of my favorite prizes from the whole hunt. Another terrific one has been in all of the photos so far, the nails which are from #30 Rad Designs. They have 4 different designs on their HUD for slink mani and pedi, but no photos on the HUD itself so you'll have to try them out to see them. This is Rainbow, the previous 2 photos I was wearing Tiedie, and there are also designs called Happy and Pink Peace. The happy one is in the next photo actually...

This lovely halter top also got my attention, big thanks to #34 Kitty Shape Wears for this awesome gift! There is also a t-shirt for the men with a blue peace symbol and more of a green-based tie dye pattern. In case you can't read it, the words are the immortal lyrics "Imagine All The People, Living Life In Peace" which makes my heart smile. The hair from this photo and the previous are A&A Leona Hair Rust Brown.

Finally we have a comfy looking jumpsuit from Perfections, who are #40 in the hunt, paired with a hemp necklace from #42 Glint. That comes in a mens size as well, and I do have to say that most of these stores were very considerate in including the men in this hunt, since so many times Xan is helping me with hunt after hunt without anything for himself and it makes me feel bad...men are mostly overlooked when it comes to SL fashion in general, which is unfortunate. The good news is that in with the many female hairs from A&A (including the Lana Hair Moonlight I'm wearing here) are a few male hairs including an Elvis 'do!

Well, I am still slowly recovering from this tummy trouble, but obviously I'm still able to make weird observations and enjoy SL, so it's not all bad :) Wishing you all lots of love, peace, and magic!!

Back in Time

Hiya everyone! I'm still healing from this stomach bug (gastroenteritis to be overly specific LOL) but I'm here for a bit with some more 70s Hunt goodies :) Sometimes it's nice to have a distraction, something more enjoyable to focus on. So let's take a stroll down memory lane!

This feels to me like a modern take on the 70s theme, and I think that's wonderful too. Literal interpretations can be beautiful, and so can nontraditional ones. Anyway this lovely outfit is from Euphoria Couture which is #12 in the hunt, and they have included the top, pants, platform shoes for slink high feet, and the bracelets you see in the photo! Pretty and generous, can't go wrong with that.

This fun and flirty outfit is by #17, Country Couture, and is another outfit that's loaded with goodies...we have a system shirt (appliers were included), prim sleeves and bow (between breasts), mesh bellbottom pants, and tie-dye Slink high shoes. I've always liked pink and black together, and I was pleasantly surprised by how cute the pop of color on the shoes is with the outfit.

Here we have the prize from #21, Absinthe, Art & Angels. Lots of parts to this as well; the mesh dress (LOVE the heart cutout), matching boots, belt in 2 sizes, bangles, and a big floppy orange sun hat with flowers that I couldn't show you because by the time I'd adjusted it above my puffy hair, it looked like a giant UFO floating over my head, hehe. Very fun outfit!

I adore this dress from GET FROCKED, #25 in the hunt, a mesh beauty that I can definitely see wearing on a wide variety of occasions. I know the shoes don't match the dress, but all the other outfits came with shoes and I really wanted you to see them! They are the prize from WICKED and have a HUD to change the color of the bow, buckles, rope, and sole. They'd go well with anything in the orange or brown color families really. I'm also wearing both gifts from Redrose Jewellery, the Flower Power Crown and the unisex necklace. Let's get a closer look at those...
The necklace was huge when I tried it on, but I clicked for the resize menu and clicked minimum size, and the perfect results are what you see there. The crown, I love the delicate flowers and even the chain is quite pretty :) They are both very versatile and great additions to any wardrobe.

My nails in all the photos are also a prize from the hunt, from #13 Soul Designs, and the generous slink nail HUD has 10 different colors of a subtle floral pattern with white tips. Really pretty and I appreciate all the color choices!

Well I hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend and that your spring is off to a nice start :) In my area we got about 5 or 6 inches of snow for the first day of spring, Mother Nature has a strange sense of humor I suppose. At least it got a bit warmer so some has melted already, and they're good about plowing our streets quickly here too. Soon we'll be seeing robins, and the first flowers of spring, those are parts of the season I love! Hugs to all of you...

Groovy Hunt Goodies

Hiya everyone! The 70s are one of those decades that was full of amazing fashions, and I think they were very influential on what we saw in later decades as well. So I was excited when I heard about the latest hunt by Fi's Creations, The 70s Hunt. I only had time to find the first 5 prizes this morning, but I am eager to share them with you all.

First we have this long strapless number from Fi's Creations, and this is prize #1. I like the way the colors aren't bright enough to make the pattern feel overwhelming, it's a good balance.

Next we have me, trying to hide my boobs again...there is a story behind this ;) The far-out jeans are from <Trashed> and I was going to try to wear the men's shirt which is also included, but it was hiding too much of the jeans and I really wanted you to be able to see the details. This is #2 in the hunt.

For #4, we visit Basta (nope I didn't forget #3, stay tuned...) and pick up this great outfit with a really wild pair of jeans that I love! The shirt is mesh, the jeans are a system layer with optional mesh flairs, so you can leave them off and wear boots with this if you'd like. The left leg (right side of picture) says "Love is the Message" and the other says "Flower Power!", and the back pockets have designs on them as well, a heart on one and a flower on the other.

Gift #5 is from MishMash Fusion, a delightfully bright tie dye dress with matching boots. I had trouble with the boots as you can probably tell, I'm a bit sunken into the floor and the top is not playing nice with my calf. There was no layer for fitting/adjusting shoes, sorry I can't think of the right term, but maybe that was the problem. There is certainly no harm in pairing them with a matching solid color of your favorite shoes you already own :)

So prize #3, you can actually see in each of these photos as it is the wonderful nails from La Boheme. You will receive HUDs for slink manicure and slink pedicure, [LB Jazz Hands] and [LB TieDyeClouds], but the manicure HUD changed both my fingernails and my updated feet's toenails. I'm a huge fan of La Boheme, and these gorgeous designs are just another reason :)

If you're curious about my hair, this is the Truth hair from the Uber event, and I've worn it before on here but not with the optional flowers or butterflies. There are attachments for the front and for the back of each, and there is a HUD to change among 6 colors, pastels for the flowers and brights for the butterflies. Love them all!

On a personal note, I've spent several days caring for someone with a stomach bug and now I am afraid I've got it too...that's why I'm running late tonight and not sure I'll be blogging tomorrow or not. I'll be back as soon as I can though, warm wishes to you all!!
