Free Is Fabulous

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I was inspired by group notices, since there have been even more fantastic FabFree group gifts added recently. Actually I went with some less recent additions, in case anyone has missed them and since they might be changed out sooner than the new ones. There are so many designers who contribute group gifts for anyone wearing the "I Am Fabulous" group tag for FabFree, which of course is free to join. Their blog has been a reliable part of my SL reading for as long as I have been in SL, and so has the inworld group :)


The first store I visited today was Northern Sky Creations, where I happily claimed their NSC Roses Dress with my FabFree group tag. It comes in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with that beautiful tulip style skirt and rich red top. 


Next I stopped by D!vine Style, who offer several different gifts for various groups in SL including this Sexy Amore - Mini Dress for FabFree. Like all of the group gifts, there is also a full fatpack on sale for 50% off, lots of colors and personalization available in those :) The Sexy Amore dress comes in 5 classic and 5 fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, plus versions for eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. This tied halter dress has plunging views both front and back, so we look great coming or going!


For those cool spring evenings, may I suggest the Paris Fur Coat from Vips Creations? It is their current FabFree group gift, and is a luxurious hooded coat that also functions as a coatdress, in standard sizes and a fitted version for classic avatars as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. The nicely coordinated black shoes are also provided, in sizes for Maitreya and Slink High feet. I really like the split pattern with spots on the front and a solid black rear. 


Luziefee is also offering a thoughtful gift to FabFree members, this one called LUZ - Roni red. The halter dress has a fun dotty pattern that made me think of the 60s for some reason. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. 


For my final look of the evening, I visited {Chaotic} and claimed their sammy outfit among many group's gifts outside the store building. There are arrows on the ground that steer us to them, so you should have no trouble locating them and may see gifts for other groups you are a member of as well. The "made in hell" tank top and distressed denim overalls are each included for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. I would also like to mention that there are treats inside the building for everyone and for their own group, things like midnight mania boards and lucky boards, so I highly encourage exploring to see what strikes your fancy. 

Tomorrow is a big day for me, as I get injection #2 of the "Fauci ouchie" ;) While I don't expect any drastic side effects, I realize that I will most likely be extra tired and sore, so I am planning on taking the evening off from blogging. I had that in mind when I decided not to take last night off, despite giving myself a break the past several Saturdays, just to try to make my Monday as stress-free as possible other than the jab. I am feeling nervous, but I want to help ensure the safety of the people around me as well as myself. I am also edgy because of thunderstorms rolling through my area for the past hour or so, since it is not fun to lose power in the middle of a blog post. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Shine Like Emeralds

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post brings us to Emerald Couture, where their free group entitles you to several group gifts as well as the chance to win on the group-only lucky chairs. There are some chairs for everyone with no group tag required, and there are now lucky boards above the chairs among lots of other treats that won't cost you a thing. I always enjoy visiting because there are so many sales and bargains in addition to the many freebies, all top quality and many outfits including jewelry and/or shoes. 


My first look is one of the four newest group gifts, called EC Mayte Dress. It includes sizes for Alice, eBody Curvy, Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite mesh bodies, with a 3 texture HUD. The choices are the two seen above and another heart pattern in a similar pink to the color on the left. I adore that heart shaped cutout in the front! For all of the group gifts, you will need to right click and pay $1L but it will be automatically refunded as the gift is delivered to you. 


Next I changed into the flirty EC Lumi Outfit Red GG which is also a free group gift. The dress comes in Altamura Sofia, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body sizes, and the shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink high feet. The undies and stockings are provided too, in system/BOM layers and Omega appliers for red and white versions. The dress has a fun split at the waist that makes it look like two pieces from the front. 


This group gift has a St. Patrick's Day flavor, yet can also be indicative of spring with the cheery green color. It is their EC Lucky Clover Outfit v2, and starts with the dress and matching undies in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. It continues with the necklace and matching earrings, as well as the headband all in versions with and without resize scripts. I appreciate having the panties to wear beneath the short and full skirt, for a touch of modesty. 


The EC Ciara Dress Green Dot is another generous group gift in vibrant shades of green. It includes standard mesh sizes plus a fitted version for classic avatars, along with sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. The style really caught my eye with the bust cutout and the diagonal slash of a hemline that goes from left hip to right knee. 


While I was there, my initial showed up on one of the group only lucky chairs so I took a seat and won this EC Rebel Outfit Leopard v2. The top and pants are linked together to wear as one piece, in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. The boots come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes too, and for classic avatars you can always use an alpha layer to hide your feet entirely. The pants have such a unique design, with a pocket on the lower back thigh and little embroidered patches scattered about, and the buttons on the barely closed top have skulls on them to perfectly match the one on the belt. 

It was quite a busy day, and I enjoyed my visit to the farmers market even though the weather was damp and cloudy. It was a bit chilly but not wintry, just enough to need a light jacket. Sometimes the weather keeps people away, but lots of folks showed up to buy tasty goods like I did :) The unpleasant houseguest arrived safely as soon as we got home, so I have been hanging out upstairs here in my computer room. Tomorrow I have things to do downstairs so either there will be an awkward conversation or awkward silence, LOL. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Sexy Weekend Gifts

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we have one more assortment of Miix Event group gifts to help celebrate their first anniversary. Just join the Hype Events group for free and you can click all the brightly colored gift boxes you see at each display to claim all sorts of generous treats. The event is open until the 20th, so about a week and a half remain to stop by and check out the terrific sales offerings and of course the gifts :)


I started my evening in the zOOm gift named Eleanor Romper, and wait until you see how versatile it is. The one piece outfit comes in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies, with a 7 color HUD so you can change up your look with a single click. That deep neckline is a real attention getter, and the flared pant legs balance things out nicely.


The warmer weather does make being outdoors more appealing, and that can mean more revealing clothing is called for. This gift from IMPACTS, called BIKINI MELLISA, really fits the bill! The bikini top and boy shorts are each provided in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique body sizing. There is also a handy HUD that offers 14 choices for the top and 10 for the bottom, a combo of solids and stripes and playful patterns to mix and match. The tropical leaf print I chose for both on the left really makes me long for a beach and a cool drink.


Next I shimmied into the MCC - Flavor Dress w HUD which is the group gift from MadCatCreations. The styling is very dramatic with those curvy cutouts and bold collar, and looks great in any of the 8 sequined colors you can choose from the HUD. The dress itself comes in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. 


Time to get even more seductive, thanks to Watermelon and their Gift 1 lingerie. It is a system/BOM layer with both bra and panties on it, slightly sheer black lace with beautiful straps. Another gift provided as a system/BOM layer is the Lightwood Tatto Oni Japanese, a unisex design covering both arms from shoulder to wrist. The vibrant colors are lovely, and it has really detailed artwork that captures the imagination. 


I am wrapping up tonight's post with probably the most suggestive gift of the evening :) This is our ROVAN R.S DOUCE BIKINI MO.1, and it includes eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Signature Alice, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes. It is a single piece, wisps of dark fabric linked with golden hoops and just barely covering the essentials. I know it's labeled as a bikini, but I am considering it lingerie as well, which is not entirely unusual for crossovers between those categories. 

Are you ready for the weekend? I am prepared but not looking forward to it as much as usual, thanks to the housemate's imminent guest. I am still going to enjoy the farmers market as much as possible, and I will be mostly spending time here at my computer which is not terribly unusual. The weather should be nice, and my DVR is overflowing with things to watch :) I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Miix Event Gifts

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we enjoy more Miix Event group gifts, yours to claim with their free Hype Events group tag. There are so many exciting reasons to visit, not the least of which is the many designers who are helping to celebrate the Miix Event's first anniversary with these thoughtful gifts. It is open until the 20th of April, so we have plenty of time to browse and claim some free goodies. 


For my first look of the evening, I chose the ZFG gift called NAVI SKY. This strapless bodysuit has capri length legs and a fun stripe down each side in a darker blue with stars to represent the sky as referenced in the name. It is provided in sizes for eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. 


Next I had some fun with an outfit and an accessory :) The gift from -XTC- is their Erika Beach Set, whose top and shorts each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. There is also a HUD with 6 choices for each, floral prints for the top with solid colors for our shorts. I like the ability to mix and match by changing them separately, or keep them in the same color family if you prefer. The beverage in my right hand is the .:Bad Rabbit:. Love is. Drink Blue gift, which is provided in two versions, with or without shine. There is a bento hold pose built in, and the brightly colored can has a striped straw and that is either a lollipop or swizzle stick (?) with it. Just something cute to quench your avi's thirst :)


I do enjoy fashion (among other things) with a celestial theme, whether that is the sun, moon, or a smattering of stars, so this gift from BlondeQueen certainly caught my eye. Their  BQ :::Moon&Stars Dress::: includes Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with an empire waist and full but short skirt. Those colors are just dreamy, with soft clouds to show off the heavenly bodies. 


Time for a sexy bodysuit, courtesy of FurtaCor! This is their Fany Bodysuit (Denim), and it includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. There is also a HUD in there, with 15 playful choices like various shades of denim with or without flowers (left) and who can resist that fun animal print on the right? There was even a pattern with leaves of a not-altogether-legal-everywhere nature ;) The straps are really intricate and create unique glimpses while covering everything essential.


For my final look this evening, I am displaying the striking LIVIA::Tia Bento Nails gift that you can claim for free with that Hype Events group tag. These are very easy to wear, just use the HUD for your body to hide the built in nails and add the size that is right for you: Belleza, eBody, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature, Slink, or Tonic. The provided HUD offers 5 manicure choices, each with a terrific mixture of shades and gemstone accents. The ring finger nails are sheer, which I did not realize until I saw the wall behind me peeking through ;) I checked with all color choices and it was consistent, and I have seen lots of beautiful RL nails with that translucent property too. These are a very nice length, a bit longer than our built in nails which makes them a bit more noticeable.

I had a busy day and got more medical advice from the appointment I went to earlier, parts of which conflict with previous advice, so I have some research to do and decisions to make. Nothing life threatening or anything, just some things that may help general quality of life. I hope you're all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Happy Anniversary Miix

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to invite you to the Miix Event's first anniversary, where you can join their free group (called Hype Events) and claim a free gift from just about every designer who is participating. Anniversaries and birthdays in SL can really bring out the generosity in people, and it's fun to see how each event decorates and what the designers bring to the party. I am delighted to show some of the group gifts, which you can find inside brightly colored gift boxes. 


First we have the Lily Dress Purple from Ruxy, a flirty mini with plunging neckline decorated with flowers. This gift includes Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, so it fits many popular mesh bodies. 


Next I changed into the Kastle Rock Couture gift called :KR: Paris Escapade - Jewel. The fluttery top and wrap skirt are each provided in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The tops are labeled modest, and I really like the way the belt attached to the skirt matches the tops perfectly.


This flattering dress is the ::WD:: Dress Mila Spring Night gift from Web Dew. There are sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies, along with a HUD to change the lace trim to your choice of 20 colors. I am a fan of crossed straps for added interest on the rear view, and the ruffled hem is a visual treat too.


Another sexy dress is this gift from *HolliPocket* called Tania Mini slate. It comes in Legacy and Maitreya sizes, and has a delicate white lace trim beneath the short hem. The deep neckline is a real attention getter! The fabric is a bit sheer and has a nice shimmer to it. 


One more look for the day, but with two terrific group gifts in it...the bikini is the Vacori Bikini Collection Fatpackgift from MH Unique. The top and bottom are each included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. There is also a HUD that offers 20 colors each for the top, brace (string), bottom, and its brace, so you can mix and match quite a bit. As for the tattoos, that would be the { Speakeasy } Yakuza Tattoo which are full sleeves suitable for any gender. This gift consists of fresh, faded, and worn varieties in system/BOM layers as well as Omega, Signature, and TMP appliers. Isn't the shading impressive? :)

I have an early afternoon appointment tomorrow so I will probably be fairly tired by the time I am posting in the evening. It won't prevent me from blogging though :) My day was nothing unusual or exciting, and I am just feeling anxiety about my upcoming 2nd injection and a few other random health things. So I am trying to focus on calm, peaceful things instead, and will be spending time in SL unwinding with Xan. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

I Love The Gacha Life

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are heading to The Gacha Life, a bimonthly (every 2 months) event that lets you try your luck on gachas and claim some generous group gifts. The group is free to join, and the gifts are inside black bags at each display with a framed image of the gift next to the bag. A selection of those gifts are what I will be sharing tonight, and the best part is that there are even more than the handful I randomly chose to display here :) This round's theme is The Great Outdoors, so the designers let their imaginations run wild and I really enjoyed the selections.


My first look has me daydreaming about summer! It is the *Sexy Style* Karim Outfit 4, and it consists of the bra top (bikini top?) and long skirt each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The skirt has such a fun Boho style, like a denim mini skirt with a long scarf attached. 


Time to get flirty with the group gift from GIULIADESIGN called ROSITA 1. Our dress and boots are each included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, and there is a jewelry set of necklace and matching earrings provided as well. The dress is very lingerie-like with thong panties built in, and there is something so seductive about thigh high boots!


C.Y <3 Fashion has a gift for us called Milly, a pretty pink dress with high-low hem and a floral heart pattern. It includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, plus a pair of black shoes (not shown) that did not quite fit my Maitreya feet and were not adjustable so I couldn't tell what body they are made for. You can just as easily wear a pair of white or pink shoes with it to complete the look if you prefer :)


This gift is both sexy and romantic, thanks to the lace and the plunging back revealing a bit of bum cleavage. It is the Cherie Mini Dress from KEY STYLE, and can be yours for free with your Gacha Life group tag. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a 3 color HUD so you can customize the look. 


For my final look of the evening, I chose the BlondeQueen gift called BQ::Pink HeartDress:: which comes in a single Maitreya size. I really like the swirly heart pattern on this short halter dress, and the white lines really make the various shades of pink pop. 

It has been a long day, and I found out that my housemate is having company for the upcoming weekend which does not thrill me because the guest's behavior tends to be less than stellar. My healthy food will be shoved aside in the fridge (or possibly thrown out) to make room for cheap beer, and the noise levels will be off the charts. I will do my best to be patient and polite, but will mostly be hiding here in the room with my computer and tv. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Hop Along Hunt

 Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features some hunt prizes from the Hop Along Hunt 4, which are all found inside small purple eggs hidden in each store for just $1L. The hints and some preview images are on the hunt's website, as well as the landmarks so you can navigate from stop to stop with the site's assistance. There are a few male prizes among the fashion finds, and lots of accessories and home decor to round things out. Your house and garden can get a fresh new look just like your wardrobe :) I always appreciate that hunt prizes are usually high quality while being extremely affordable, and a great way to see what a designer's products are like. 


My first look comes from ~MystRie~ and is one of two prizes there, male and female. It is called Softly Spring Dress, and really lives up to that name with its pale green and white floral pattern on a light maxi dress. It is provided in 3 fitmesh sizes (S, M, L) for classic avatars along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizing. I think it is ideal for warmer weather, or dreaming of spring when chilly weather hits. The male prize is in a different egg, so following the hints is especially important to ensure you are picking up the correct one.


The egg at [Ari-Pari] holds a prize created exclusive for this hunt, so finding it is the only way to obtain this lovely Belinda Spring Dress - HAH4. It includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with a 10 texture HUD that lets you choose from a variety of floral prints. The style is a flirty one, with straps that cross in the back and meet in the front to loop through and hold our bodice in place. 


Next I slipped into the ::REA:: Deandra dress, another versatile and sexy prize. It is provided in standard mesh sizes along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. There is also a HUD with 6 dress colors and 11 metals for the chains that link the top and skirt. It's a little bit feminine and a little bit rock and roll ;)


Another choice that brings plenty of options for those who enjoy multiple looks from a single outfit is the Olivia Dress - Pattern from OMG! Inc. It comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) with a 6 texture HUD that really livens up the dress and makes it more personal. 


My final look of the evening is delightful for spring too. It is the HAH4 Gift Dress found inside the egg at Prairie, in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. Its fluttery mauve skirt is a terrific match for the floral pattern on the bodice, which is carefully crafted to flatter the bustline.

I seem to be slow tonight, probably just distracted easily by lots of different things going on but nothing problematic. I am trying to get some RL issues taken care of which will involve making appointments here and there, and I am not looking forward much to any of them but they are necessary. I hope you're all having a great day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Egg Hunting Part Two

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more prizes from the Easter Sale and Egg Hunt at Cies Island to share. Several stores there are taking place, just look for the signs outside each location and have fun wandering the charming sim to find tiny pastel eggs inside the stores. There are also gachas for 50% off as part of the holiday sale, and this all lasts until the 11th so you have almost a week remaining. I really enjoyed browsing the shops, and hope you do too!


My first look of the evening comes from an egg in the BlackJack store. This prize is called BJK* Festive Dress & Stole Green, and starts with a dashing wrap dress in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes. The stole is a single fitted size that should fit most bodies and shapes, and the dress looks terrific with or without it. 


Next I am a big fan of the sexy Luas prize called Jacintha White. Its corset and separate sleeves are provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite mesh bodies. It has delicate white accent roses in strategic locations, and really draws attention to the waist. 


I felt extra pretty in pink with this prize from Una called Claudia Pink. It includes long and short versions, each sized for the Maitreya body. The long (on the left above) has a flowing skirt that pools into a slight train and looks luxurious when walking. The short one is very similar otherwise with the black trim and exposed openings, with a brief fluttery hemline. 


Another egg I found at Una contained their Medusa White gift, although the wrap dress with plunging neckline actually comes in white and yellow versions inside. Each of those is provided in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with silver and gold snake belts in those same sizes plus an unrigged version in case you want one you can adjust. This prize offers plenty of versatility!


My final look of the night is the Pixie White prize, also from Una. This dress is styled like overalls, complete with heart cutouts both front and back. You could layer a shirt beneath for modesty of you wish since those sides are awfully low, it all depends where you wish to wear it I suppose. A bodysuit would cover the tiny flash of bum cleavage revealed by the rear heart too :) Find the egg and you will be able to claim it in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, all for free just like the rest of the generous eggs. 

I had a busy and tiring weekend, but for the most part I enjoyed it so I would say it was worth it :) The market was fun, and I met a 4 month old Shar Pei puppy named Bao who was a friendly little sweetheart ♥. I did a video chat with my grandmother this afternoon for Easter, with my parents' help, and then later had a nice ham dinner with my parents. The new month in SL brings all sorts of exciting events and hunts, so I am looking forward to this week and finding special treats to share with all of you. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Easter Egg Hunting

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the Cies Island sim for an Easter Sale and Egg Hunt. There are several participating stores with free eggs to find, so please take your time and explore all the stores to see if they have a hunt sign out front so you know there is at least one treat hiding inside. The eggs are fairly small and pastel colored, so they might not appear until you get close to them. They were not terribly tricky to find though, which is helpful when you are searching several large stores :) All of tonight's looks happen to be from eggs at Luas, fashions ranging from formal to flirty. Even though Easter is this weekend, the hunt/sale runs until the 11th of April, so you have over a week to find the eggs.


My first look this evening is the Luas Cassandra Purple prize, and what a gorgeous color! It includes long and short dresses plus belts in silver and gold, each in Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes, plus a single size shawl in beige. You can mix and match these to wear this your way, depending on your tastes and the occasion. I went beltless on the right so you could see the dresses do not have a sharp waistline, meaning without one of the belts you get more of a sleek flowing style.


Next we have the prize called Luas Shiadal Black, a tempting mini dress with spaghetti straps that is gathered at the left hip and tied with a bow. It comes in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh body sizes. I enjoy the contrast of the stark black with the bows and ruffles, a mix of seductive and sweet.


This look combines two different prizes, and I don't know if they were intended to be worn this way but I think they look hot together! The top is the Luas Tiffany Top Lilac, a soft knit sweater with long detached sleeves and a fun opening in the front. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, and Maitreya Petite bodies. The Luas Dara Skirt Leopard Purple has zippers galore and a terrific pattern, and when you find this egg you can claim it in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing. 


For a very sexy look, be sure to find the egg containing Luas Sweetie Blue. It consists of the corset, pasties, and thong (no sides or back on the thong though, so more of a patch) each in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes. I love the deep sapphire blue shade, and the way the studs on the corset appear to sparkle or twinkle. The heart shaped pasties and little bows add romance too.


My final look of the evening is their Luas Estela Pink & White corset and panty. They are each included in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Legacy Perky, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The hot pink satin has a subtle pattern embossed, and the white trim, ruffles, and bow are very flattering contrasts. 

My dental visit went fine yesterday, and I was extra tired so it was good to have the evening off from blogging to rest :) Today I had dinner at my parents' and we made plans for Easter dinner on Sunday and a video chat with my grandmother for the holiday. I long for the days when it will be safe to visit her in person again, which might happen in May for Mothers Day since we will all be fully vaccinated by then. Tomorrow I am off to the farmers market and a few other plans, so I am still taking Saturday evening off from the blog too. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Twisted Tattoos

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more Twisted Hunt prizes to show you from their Spring 2021 round, and this handful includes several tattoos. The hunt's theme this round is Djinn, and the color is sandy orange which can be found on the cube we are searching for as well as many of the prizes. Please check out the hunt's website if you are not familiar with this tricky adventure, so you can be prepared for such things as decoys (up to 13 visible permitted) and how to ask for hints (inworld group, politely) to get as much enjoyment as possible from it. The other most helpful tip I have is to be on the look out for easels with the hunt logo on them, as clicking them will give you a notecard with that store's details like side hunts, sales, gachas, and even occasionally a handy hint :) We have until the 15th of April so there is still plenty of time to find the cubes and claim some free goodies.


My first look is one of two treats inside the same cube at FMB Fashion, this being the ladies' gift called Brynn Dress. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body sizing. There is also a HUD provided with a grid of tinting possibilities or you can enter the hexadecimal (6 character) HTML color code. It also has buttons to adjust shine, glow, and alpha, so this is a really versatile addition to any wardrobe.


For this look, I will start with the bikini you are going to see in the remainder of my photos this evening :) It is a marketplace freebie called LOVELACE Basic Bikini - BLACK, and includes system/BOM layers for the top and thong separately so you can wear them separately or together. The tattoo is the Twisted hunt prize from Leave Your Mark called LYM - Rub Me The Right Way. You can see the genie lamp on the lower right of the back part, releasing a beautiful genie in swirls of mist. The sleeves have a pop of color towards the shoulders, with different artwork styles blending together. The tattoo comes in a system/BOM layer and an Omega applier, so that should provide a lot of compatibility with various avatars.


Our next stop is ~*Wyld Winter*~ where you can find 3 cubes that contain prizes among several decoys too, so be sure to look thoroughly. They are each tattoos in BOM layers in 4 opacities (25, 50, 75, and 100%) and with Regalia body versions, and all are tintable. This artwork on my arms is their The Djinn's Garden and can be seen here in its original white. 


Another cube holds the striking The Djinn's Binding prize, a front ribcage (underboob) design with a lotus and delicate chandelier-like draped chains. The scalloped dark line is the tattoo, not to be confused with the straight band of the bikini string :) For this one, I added the tattoo and edited it, adding a tint to black which I randomly chose since my skintone is rather pale. I saved a copy and added the word black to the end of the new name, so I now have this color in the folder to wear whenever I wish. 


The Djinn's Lamp is the third prize from ~*Wyld Winter*~, and this one appears on the left thigh down the leg past the knee. I tinted it a reddish brown since the art style reminds me of henna, but remember you can choose any color your imagination leads you to pick :) The genie's lamp is on the left hip, and from the front the thigh area reminded me of a peacock. So pretty and detailed! Technically you can wear these all at the same time since they are on different areas of the body, but I felt it easier to differentiate doing one at a time. It will depend on what I am wearing and therefore which one is easily seen, which I wear at any given time and what color I tint it. 

I think the technology in my life decided to celebrate April Fool's a little early, because my mouse is all laggy and stuttering when I move it, and when I rebooted my PC yesterday it developed a new bad habit of a Windows Security alert that actions are recommended when there are in fact none needed. I was already planning to take tomorrow evening off from blogging because of a dental appointment, so I feel like this is a weird hint to reaffirm that decision like my computer wants time off too. So I will return on Friday evening, and since it is a new month I will have even more possibilities of what I might choose to share. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
