Baby, It's Cold Outside at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! I am back to blogging after a couple of days off for Thanksgiving, and I'm really excited to share a new fishing set from Sn@tch called Fish 4 This -  Baby It's Cold Outside. It has 23 pieces which you can catch with your 7 Seas fishing rod (purchase one at the store if you don't already have one, it can be reused endlessly) and that includes 8 mesh tops in standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink sizes, 8 leggings in system or Omega, hair in rigged and unrigged versions with a HUD that offers 10 color selections, 3 scarves, a pair of boots, and 2 shades of lipstick in system or Omega. The possibilities are amazing, since you can mix and match the tops and leggings or wear the tops as a short dress, and they can be worn with or without the scarves for even more variety.


Let's start with the hair, which is the loose sky-high bun called Sn@tch Coco Hair Naturals, I'm wearing the rigged version but the unrigged will allow you to resize or reposition it if needed. You can also catch the HUD with 10 colors for the hair, which gives it even more versatility. On the left I am wearing the Sn@tch It's Cold Dress in Army, on the right is the Maroon version, and for the leggings I am wearing the Sn@tch November Leggings in Camo on the left and in Daisies on the right. I liked them paired together this way, but of course you can get as creative as you wish and match them up anyway that makes you happy :) All 8 varieties of leggings are on the same Omega HUD, while the system layers are boxed as 4 per box so just two catches to get all 8 system versions for classic avatars.


Check out my beautiful new boots! These are the Sn@tch It's Cold Boots in Black, and you will be fishing for each one separately as well as a box with the alpha layer and shoe base if you need those (I just hid my Slink feet with their HUD). The boots have bright silver buckles and detailing at the top too, balanced on high stiletto heels. Here I have them paired with the It's Cold Dress in Black, and the November Leggings in Knit Blue. There is a purple version of the dress that looks quite striking with this design of the leggings too, by the way. This pattern just looks so warm and cozy to me!


I did mention scarves, and here I was pleased to top things off with the Sn@tch It's Cold Scarf in Silver, which when worn with the It's Cold Dress in Grey looks like it could be a collar that is part of the top. I paired them with the November Leggings in Velvet Purple, a favorite color of mine in a delicious texture that looks so touchable. Our wonderful Sn@tch designer, Ivey, absolutely has an eye and a talent for textures.


For this look I am wearing the It's Cold Scarf in Leopard, a subtle pop of print above the solid It's Cold Dress in Teal. The November Leggings in Geometric have several colors within their pattern, so you could pair them with many of the different tops in this fishing set, depending which shade matches your mood or is your favorite of the day. The boots are a perfect neutral to go with any of these looks. My smile is enhanced by one of the two shades of lipstick that are part of this set, the Sn@tch It's Cold Lipstick in Taupe. I used the Omega applier which has both colors on the same HUD, but each system layer is out there for the catching as well.


As I was trying on the different looks for this post, I think my favorite combo changed several times since they are all pretty great, honestly. If I had to choose though, it would probably be this one since I am so fond of purple shades :) This is the It's Cold Dress in Plum, with the November Leggings in Fuzzy Pink, and the It's Cold Scarf in Black which will coordinate well with any of these tops. The inset gives you a closer look at the It's Cold Lips in Rose, so you can see how richly pigmented this velvety lip color is. I look so ready to face a chilly autumn day or evening in style!

My Thanksgiving was a pretty good one, despite the emotional aspect of several family members with health issues. I may have caught my uncle's cold, and since I just got over one a few weeks ago I am definitely not thankful for a repeat. What I am thankful for is time with family, especially my slightly younger cousins I don't see often enough, and just being fortunate enough to have caring people in my life. I'm also grateful to have blogging to look forward to each evening, as well as time in SL with Xan. There are plenty of other things, those are just the main things that I wanted to mention right now :) If you are reading this, I am thankful for that fact too! I hope you all had a nice holiday if in the USA, a nice couple of days no matter where you are, and a beautiful weekend ahead. Enjoy those Black Friday sales too, they are everywhere in SL and RL. Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Time To Get Stuffed

Hiya everyone! Tonight I will be showing you some hunt prizes, from the Get Stuffed Hunt which is a gridwide dollarbie hunt that will have you searching for flat prim cornucopias, also known as a horn of plenty. They are traditional decorations for Thanksgiving, and these are fairly small but there are hints on the website to guide you to finding them. All your landmarks are there too, so I do suggest having it open while you explore and look for these prizes. There is a page with many previews of the prizes as well, so you can get an idea of what is being offered. The hunt lasts until the end of November, so while you do have over a week left, some of these prizes deserve to be worn and enjoyed as soon as possible for the holiday.


Find the cornucopia at #bye and for just $1L you can pick up their Get Stuffed outfit. The top and pants are actually one piece, included in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The shirt says "I'm Stuffed" and on Thursday I probably will be saying exactly that in RL. 


Each year at Thanksgiving, I do give a lot of thought to things I am grateful for, so this dress from @rOrO expresses that idea beautifully. It is called Thankful Dress Hunt Gift, and comes in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. This year it is a bit harder to focus on the positive things, but I am really striving to find an attitude of gratitude.


Applique` Chic is offering their AC Retro Autumn Dress inside their $1L cornucopia, and it is as versatile as it is beautiful. The dress itself is included in standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and TMP versions, and there is a HUD provided with 6 texture options. As you can see from the two shown above, there are solid bodices and patterned skirts that coordinate perfectly in colors that are well suited for the season. I would gladly wear this year-round though, and not feel limited to autumn.


Soju is a store that is relatively new to me, but I have picked up a couple of hunt prizes there recently and found myself impressed and pleased. This is their prize called Get Stuffed Hunt Dress, in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The fun pattern of cupcakes and lollipops, in seasonal colors, certainly put me in mind of all the treats people commonly enjoy for dessert this time of year. It is a very flattering style, too.


This sweatshirt brought a smile to my face, especially since it looks so comfy for when all the food is prepared and everyone can just kick back and enjoy a good meal with good company. It is our prize from Waffles, the Get Stuffed Female (there is a male version included too in that same $1L gift) and is provided in standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The front pocket with the cute turkey on it will be perfect for hiding that "food baby" from overindulging ;)

It was another long day here, and oh my goodness there was SO much cracking at the chiropractor! It sounded like every single vertebrae moved at least twice, LOL, which is probably not even possible but it was amusing how loud it all was. I do feel better, which will help for a rough car ride Thursday. Bumpy roads, twists and turns, roads torn up by construction, it's like a bad amusement park ride. The journey will be worth it because the destination is family :) I hope you are all having a terrific day/evening, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

A Little More HYIS

Hiya everyone! Tonight is another group of glimpses at HYIS 17 Hunt prizes, another fun batch from this playful hunt which stands for Hunt for Your Inner Slut. As I mentioned yesterday, you will be searching for a golden cock (the male member, not a rooster) based on hints found on their website. The landmarks are there rather than in each prize folder, so you will need that page open anyway. There are 23 carefully selected stores taking part, some fashion and some home decor/furniture, so the prizes are a nice variety. 


The first gift of the evening is from Frostbitten Designs, their Moon Silk Halter Top. This lovely draped top includes fitmesh sizes for standard, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and TMP, with a HUD that offers 6 color choices. It looks to be materials enabled, judging from the sheen that is visible on the left, and covers what we need covered while baring our back delightfully. I am wearing my favorite marketplace gift from Delizio, jeans in several colors in system, Omega, and Maitreya, seen here (and the next photo) in black.


This next gift makes me feel like I should be singing or dancing in a performance of Grease! It is the PKD Pink Myst Sweater from Pretty Kitty Designs, and is such a vibrant color that is sure to turn heads wherever you wear it, no matter what you wear it with. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. Just find the hidden Mister Happy and give him a gentle tap, and he will reward you with the prize :) 


The gift from Madcat Creations is this stunning geometric gown, love the deep squared neckline and keyhole opening! It comes in plenty of sizes to fit just about all of us: fitmesh standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and TMP. The back is full coverage, which contrasts the front nicely.


I am always looking for stylish casual outfits, and it sure looks like I found one here! This is our prize from OMG! Inc. and is called Supernova Top and Pant Outfit. Each piece is included in standard, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Ocacin, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes. The pants have a luxurious leathery sheen, and the deep plunging blouse looks like something one might see through a telescope or from NASA photos of outer space. Stunning!


Apparently my inner slut occasionally moonlights as a unicorn, because she is just that magical! The prize from ~Alternating Current is their ~AC Unicorn Dress and Horn, and features a well coordinated duo with a swirl of pastel shades and a sprinkling of glitter. The dress (with harness attached) comes in standard mesh sizes along with Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP fits. Between the colors, style, and bonus of the fun horn, this gift just makes me so happy.

The dentist visit was...what's the opposite of fun? LOL well it wasn't too terrible I guess, but I do have some tiny pinprick cavities they will probably need to fill next time. It was so busy there, they couldn't have done anything tonight and my regular dentist wasn't even there. Tomorrow is busy too, and I have Thanksgiving prep to do soon as well so my week is rather chaotic. I'm not feeling it this year, so my plan is to fake it till I make it ;) I hope all of you are having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

HYIS Hunt Time

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am featuring some prizes from the HYIS 17 Hunt, which stands for Hunt for Your Inner Slut. I am fascinated by how the word slut has evolved, from being a horrifying insult when I was growing up, to now being mostly used in the term slut shaming which points out (rightfully) that it is unfair that women are judged harshly for exploring their sexuality by actions or even dressing provocatively. My RL dress and behavior are fairly modest, but I firmly believe that what we wear or who we love should not affect how we are treated. Okay, so this bold hunt has you searching for golden male members (the infamous golden cock from all the previous rounds, examples on hunt signs) in 23 stores, where you can just give him a click when you find him and receive a free prize. The landmarks are on the website rather than in each hunt prize, and they include clothing, accessories, and decor like some furniture pieces with interesting poses ;) Some of the sims are rated adult, so child avatars are probably not the best choice for your hunting look. The hunt runs until the 15th of December, so you have plenty of time to explore the stores and find all these prizes.


This alluring dress is our prize from 1 Hundred, their Little Lace Dress in a bright pink with white trim. It comes in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique, and is extra short with a fun off the shoulder design. I like the idea of it as a nightie, since the pink makes it feel romantic to me.


I had to add a couple of what I am tempted to call 'privacy flowers' in Photoshop to keep this on the family friendly side. I promise they are not part of the actual outfit, and you will be able to wear this beautiful lingerie set from @rOrO as boldly as you wish :) There are two mesh pieces, the halter and the panty, each included in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and there is an Omega applier for the matching gloves I am wearing here. The gloves are a sharp touch, and could be worn with other outfits for variety as well, so they are a very welcome addition.


If you have a Maitreya or Omega compatible mesh body, you will love this prize from Appliers By Valarie. It is called [ABV] Netsuit - Wine and is provided on a HUD that is compatible with Maitreya and Omega, with plenty of options. The upper has version 1, version 1 alt, version 2, and version 2 alt, each in solid or transparent versions, while the lower has solid and transparent options of stockings, stockings alt, leggings, leggings alt, or bottom only. I am wearing the solid on the left and the transparent on the right, and that wine color is very flattering especially with the black trim.


This tempting set is our prize from CJC and is named [CJC] HYIS Ashlie Lingerie Set Red. It is provided in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with the deep crimson color giving the lace a a bit of an edge, feminine but not overly girlie. 


One final look for the night, this is the AC:Mystic Stars HYFIS Gift from Applique` Chic, yours when you find the golden appendage. (Don't you love how innocent I try to make that sound? LOL) This gift includes mesh sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, and I am glad that it is mesh because I think it would look even sexier with some thigh high stockings layered beneath. That would work really well as an applier beneath the mesh. Also, being mesh allows the beautiful bows to be dimensional and since they are attached, they don't need to be adjusted to fit your specific shape. 

Tomorrow I will have more prizes from this hunt to share, and I'd like to apologize for not blogging yesterday because I was simply worn out. This Thanksgiving is going to be really challenging, and I probably won't have as much time to blog as I'd like this week. I also have several appointments this week (dentist tomorrow, chiropractor the next day, etc.) which quite frankly are bad timing. It's too late to change them now though, so I will just do whatever I can and blog when I can. Keep calm and blog on? I hope you've all had a terrific weekend and have a great new week ahead, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Chasin' The Gobbler

Hiya everyone! Tonight I will be showing you some prizes from the Chasin' The Gobbler 2 Hunt, a gridwide dollarbie hunt that will send you searching for cute little sculpted turkeys in each participating store. Just pay them each a linden and they will reward you with a fantastic prize, which sounds like a great deal to me :) I suggest opening their website so you can see some previews of the prizes and navigate from store to store, the landmarks are not in the prizes so you will need it. The hunt runs until the 26th of November, so you have over a week left to find the generous prizes.


Find the cute turkey at Waffles and you can claim this Fall Turkey Outfit, which is one layered piece with the look of 3, including a shirt that says Gobble Me Up! on a turkey tail. The outfit comes in standard fitmesh sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, and just looks so comfy with the leaf pattern blouse and loose shorts. Handy hint for this one: when visiting the store, you will land in a reception area with new releases, but you will need to use the teleporter to head to the womens' section to locate your prize.


Our gift from Sweet Intoxication is their Autumn Outfit - Pumpkin Spice and it offers a t-shirt, jeans, and fringed boots. The shirt says "Pumpkin Spice is my Favorite Season" and is included in standard mesh sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The jeans are in standard fitmesh sizes along with Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. The boots come in sizes for classic avatars, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, with shoe bases for classic or mesh feet. This is a really fun gift, and I know a few people in RL who need this shirt too!


I kept the classic jeans on from the prior prize, and added the prize from Soju which is this lovely Chasin' The Gobbler Hunt Sweater. It is included in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and has a wonderful knit texture with several colors of autumn leaves sprinkled on it. It is going to be a go-to choice for me when I need something to wear while searching the grid for goodies to share with all of you.


Next we have the ~KCB~ Autumn Breeze dress which is just $1L when you find the turkey at Kat's Clothing Boutique. This belted beauty is provided in standard fitmesh sizes and Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique versions to suit many shapes and sizes. The pretty texture reminds me of a geode, which I think of as proof that Mother Nature is quite an artist.


Not all the prizes are strictly autumn themed, as you can see by this prize from Soul Designs called Lolita Salsa Micro Dress w/HUD. There are sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, and standard mesh sizes included, as well as a HUD with 6 colors to choose from, two of which are shown above. With a bare back and two side slits, this dress is designed to turn heads in any of its colors.

It felt like a very long day, maybe from being emotionally drained, but I have plans in the morning that I think will cheer me up. I hope all of you have a terrific weekend ahead, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

No Cabide Group Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am sharing some group gifts from my morning visit to No Cabide, and their group is free to join so these generous presents won't cost you anything at all. There are goodies for many other groups as well, but I chose to focus on the store's group for today. There are milestone gifts and a Halloween gift still available, so if they catch your eye as they did mine, I cannot tell how long they will be there so I'd hurry :) Another part of SL wardrobes that I am very fond of is nails, a great manicure/pedicure can make any outfit feel even more special, so tonight I am showing you a fantastic LIVIA set you can purchase at the SCALA Yin/Yang event for November. 


First we have the gift celebrating 12,000 group members, called No Cabide Sara Outfit 4 Models. It consists of a sweater and skirt each in sizes for standard, Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, as well as the black bag, left and right watches, gold glasses, and scarf in 2 sizes. The shoes have the socks attached and are available in plenty of sizes too, just unpack the body type (Slink, Maitreya, etc) and each of those packs contains everything you need. There is also a HUD that lets you change colors/textures, 4 each for the sweater and skirt and even the shoes. The purse has a built in hold pose to ensure that it hangs from your hand correctly. 


The gift to celebrate 14K group members took on a distinctly Harley Quinn flavor, with the sexy turned up to full volume! This is called Harley Set and it starts with the top, shorts, and garters that each have sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is an Omega applier with the socks you see here in both designs, white and checkered, and the other goodies included are the wedge sneakers, the choker I am wearing, and the fun glasses in 4 sizes, all of which contain resize scripts. There is so much you can do with this set, wear as many or as few of the components as you wish and mix it up with other outfits to find the perfect look for you.


Even the most angelic personality among us tends to have a dash of mischief, that devilish side that comes out to play every now and then. When it does, show it off in this No Cabide Demon Girl Outfit, the playful Halloween gift I mentioned earlier. Inside you will find the revealing dress in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with plenty of accessories: tail, horns, wings, necklace, and boots in small/medium/large sizes. Most of the components have resize scripts so just give them a click if you want to adjust them. 


When the weather starts to get chilly, as it is here in RL for me, I start to crave clothing like bulky sweaters, which are not always the most flattering or flirty of choices. This gift called No Cabide - Izzie Set is actually a perfect solution to that dilemma, since it is cozy with those long sleeves, but also has little peekaboo vents to show cleavage and is long enough to be worn as a dress without the need for pants. I love the added touch of the hood, and the front reads "Beauty and Crazy Live Dreams" with a couple of lip prints decorating the text. The sweater dress is provided in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and the sneakers are included as well to keep your toes warm and fashionable. 


The eternal Harry Potter geek in me immediately thought "Ravenclaw" when I saw this gorgeous nail set from LIVIA, then one of the designs made me think Art Deco. Clearly like all artwork, this nail art can evoke different thoughts and opinions. It is called Tranquil Nails and is found exclusively at the SCALA Yin/Yang event this month, for only $99L. The HUD is compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Omega, Tuty, and Vista, with 5 designs that beautifully combine the two main colors. Do they make you think of the sun and sky, or the sand and ocean? Ravenclaw? Maybe they are your school colors, or just a favorite shade of blue. Whatever motivates you, be sure to visit and pick them up before the month ends! The LIVIA mainstore link is in my right sidebar as always, and the credits at the end will whisk you right to the event location.

I am running a bit late tonight, distracted by breaking news that is deeply upsetting me. There is a huge fire at the nursing home/senior facility where my grandmother stayed for a while during her rehab from her stroke, and while she is safely at home I can't help but worry about all those residents who were evacuated into the cold and have to wait to be transported somewhere safe. I guess having seen first hand how vulnerable the residents are (most are wheelchair bound or bedridden) is making me worry even more than usual. All I can do is pray, send positive vibes, and keep an eye on the local news websites. And to think, a few minutes before hearing about this, I was fretting about a hockey game...that sure seems tiny in comparison now. I hope you're all having a good day/evening, please tell someone you love them or do something nice to show them. Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fantastic Fashion Dazzle and Free Dove Finds

Hiya everyone! Tonight we will be exploring the Fashion Dazzle event again, which is open until the 25th of each month and as I mentioned yesterday, has a delightful theme for November of Geometry Shapes in Fashion. I will be showing you dresses from PaperMoon and some home decor from Storaxtree, all of which can be found at Fashion Dazzle this round. I also will be sharing some more gifts from The Free Dove, for which you just need their group tag (free to join) to claim. I've been a fan of Free Dove for years, and greatly appreciate that it brings together so many generous designers who offer gifts suitable for men or women, new or longtime residents, classic avatars or mesh bodies, it is very inclusive. 


Our first look is actually two dresses by PaperMoon that you can pick up for just $240L each at Fashion Dazzle. On the left is PaperMoon- KISS ME Gown V1, on the right is V2, and they each include 8 fitmesh sizes: standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. They are both beautiful designs, one with circles in pops of color and the other decorated in jazzy sequins. We also have such a flattering rear view too from this style, that dramatic plunge of the back.


All you have to do to reach The Free Dove from Fashion Dazzle is head out the door and cross the pretty courtyard, and follow the path into the Free Dove building. The courtyard has signs about each month's mini hunts as well as featured designers, so it is a fun little journey. Once inside, I headed to the women's clothing displays where I found this deep green gown gift from Gidget's Style. It's called GS TFD Adanna Giftie Nov2017, so it is new here for this month, and includes standard mesh sizes. Just have your Free Dove group tag active and give the box a click, and it's all yours for free.


Perhaps you are in the mood for a paler shade of green, and a more revealing style of dress, well the gift from G SLOANE has got you covered. It is called GSC English Garden Dress, and is provided in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. Before I had my mesh bodies, I found that sometimes a size meant for a mesh body fit my shape fairly well, and I had enough various alpha layers in my inventory that one was likely to match up to what I needed. 


This generous gift is from FurtaCor and is their Katty Dress, which comes in sizes for eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, with small and large standard sizes as well. There is a HUD that offers 29 textures for this flirty mini, solids and a variety of prints, and the studded clutch in my left hand is included in this gift too. There is even a tattoo included but not shown (sorry, had a forgetful moment) as an Omega applier, that covers the shoulders and arms, can be worn with this or any outfit you choose. 


My last photo will need to be clicked so you can see it full sized :) The dress is a Free Dove group gift from LUXE Paris, their ARTSY Dress which includes standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya and Eve Slim versions. The ruffled hem and floral bodice are a clever contrast to the stark black and white coloring, so it's not overly girlie. If you head back over to Fashion Dazzle and visit the Storaxtree display, you will find several color variations of the stunning Plates & Candles Shelf B4 I am standing next to here, just $75L each and with a built in resize script. The land impact is a modest 7, and I was particularly drawn to the teal of the plates and candles but the others each have different colors if you prefer. Those dainty lights draped beneath are a wonderful touch, and the rustic style suits so many different popular home decorating ideas. It will also be fun for the upcoming holiday season and they are transferable, so pick up extra for gift purposes too.

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