Banish the Winter Blues

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some more So Blue Hunt prizes to show you, since there were so many that really caught my eye. To remind you about the hunt, it is a $1L gridwide hunt where you will be looking for a blue heart that reads So Blue and has lights around the outer edge of the heart. The theme is winter blues or "so lonely" anti-Valentines Day blues, with the vast majority of the prizes being blue in color. They certainly cheered me up, and I hope they brighten your day too.


Sometimes a furry friend (or feathered, scaly, etc.) is just what is needed to chase away the blues, like the sweet feline face and paws on this prize from Waffles. It is their Blue Ice Snow Cat Angelika LS Dress, and comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. As a hint in addition to the one on the website, I will add a general reminder that Waffles store has floors for mens and womens items as well as the landing area level, just use the teleporter pad on the floor to navigate.


This sexy number is our $1L hunt prize from COVETED! called Blue Jean for Mesh Bodies. It is included in Belleza Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and will flatter your curves by wrapping them in denim and lace. That zipper is a terrific detail too. Just find the hidden blue heart to claim this bargain.


My next visit was to Grey's Mind Maze, an enchanting place to visit by the way, and I was delighted to find their heart which contains their So Blue? Pah! Dress in standard mesh sizes. It makes me long to be near the ocean, or gazing up at a starry night sky. Enjoy the vivid images on this lovely gown for just $1L when you locate that heart.


Frostbitten Designs has a striking blue dress with a really short hem, their So Blue Dress, tucked inside their heart waiting for you to find it. It includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, with a HUD that offers 6 textures to choose from. Disclosure, the HUD did not work for me, but occasionally HUDs get glitchy for me and things tend to be weird in SL on Tuesdays, so I will try again tonight.


For my final look of the evening, I went a bit more casual with a sassy twist :) The top I am wearing is actually a Free Dove gift that you can claim with their free group tag, from [DR] called Mini Top Heart Maitreya & Belleza II. The gift does include appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, and Omega, along with a system layer. You can probably guess that the pants would be the hunt prize then, and you'd be right. They are the Dark Inc. I'm so blue pants applier, just $1L when you locate their blue heart, in an Omega applier for any compatible mesh body to enjoy. The blue is subtle here, as accents rather than the main color, and I thought that was a fun touch. 

It was a surprisingly nice day out, and tomorrow will be even warmer, so no winter blues here at the moment. I guess that means the hunt prizes worked ;) I was glad to be out to enjoy it, and I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening too. Many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Blue Monday

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am exploring the So Blue Hunt, a $1L gridwide hunt with a theme of winter blues, "so lonely" blues, or can't stand Valentines Day blues. It has snowed a few times this month here in RL and is going to do so again, so I'd say I am leaning towards a case of the winter blues and am glad to have found some great hunt prizes to cheer myself. You will be looking for a soft blue heart that says So Blue inside it, with lights around the edge of the heart, by following the hints from the website for each store. One of the stores I visited, I realized I had not picked up the group gift or profile picks gift for the month yet, so I am showing you the profile picks reward from Moonstar as a little bonus. It may not be blue like the other goodies, but it is a lovely silver dress that can easily lift spirits too. I know my title is Blue Monday and this won't be posted till technically Tuesday in my time zone, but it will still be Monday in SL time so that's close enough. 


My first stop on the hunt path was :.C!L.: where I found the blue heart and claimed a pair of very pretty gowns, their White and Blue Prom Dress Sets. You will receive the Blue and White (seen on the left) and White and Blue (right) each in sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. I may not have a prom to attend in my future, but you can bet I will find a fancy occasion to wear these stunning gowns.


The prize from Soju should chase away those winter blues with its sweet floral pattern and springy tank style. This is their So Blue Hunt Dress, just $1L when you find their hidden blue heart, which holds sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. There are several other hunt prizes scattered about their store too, so I expect I will be back soon and just might show you some of those gifts as well.


Sometimes a good way to shake off the blues is to wear something that accentuates just how beautiful you are :) This flirty dress is the prize from MadCatCreations called MCC - Woman - So Blue Hunt, and it comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. It has a unique shape with lots of cutouts, and patches of dark blue sequins in the texture that make it even more intriguing. 


A great way to highlight the richness of the color blue is to add gold, and Moonstar has done that two ways with their prize called Moody Blue Dress and Collar. The dress is included in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The included collar has a resize script built in so you can adjust as needed, and there are black lace panties provided in a system layer and an Omega applier for mesh or classic avatars. 


Now don't leave Moonstar just yet, or you would miss out on this gorgeous sparkly gift! Make sure they are in your profile picks, and if they are you can click the sign to claim this Silvera Dress, Bangles, and Earrings reward. If they aren't there yet, just add them and it might take 24 hours or so before their system updates so you might need to try again then. The gift starts with the base of the dress in system layers and appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Omega, and Lolas, and the mesh skirt panel is included in standard mesh sizes plus standard Slink versions which seem to need a higher hemline in my experience. Then we have the pretty earrings and matching bracelet set which includes a resize script on click. This is such a glamorous look, and might be just the thing to perk up a midweek night out.

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

Building a Mystery

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some prizes from the Mystery Hunt to share, which is a small free gridwide hunt (8 stops) where you will be searching for a tiny black box in each participating store. Some of the prizes are reminiscent of Valentines Day, but not in a limiting way, meaning you will still be able to enjoy them year round. There are hints on the website and at a few stores on their hunt sign, so that will help you search for the small boxes. The hunt runs throughout the month, so if it is still February when you read this then you still have time :) Something else I am excited to show you tonight is a beautiful set of eyeshadows from LIVIA, found exclusively at The Makeup Room event until the 25th. 


There are days when I really want something easy to wear, a full outfit that is coordinated and all in one folder, just a few clicks and I can be out the door. This hunt prize from Sin Original fits that bill in style! It is called Margerie and includes the the tank top and shorts each in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique, with the matching tiptoe sneakers in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High. A helpful hint about unpacking: the Slink sneakers are no copy, so you will have to rez the package onto the ground (or at a sandbox) to get that item out. Anytime an auto-unpacker is no copy, I have made it a habit to check the contents (edit - contents tab) to see what's in there that cannot be copied out by the unpacking script. Sometimes it's just the script itself that is no copy, and that's fine, but anything else and I unpack the old fashioned way.


This is one of the prizes that reminded me of Valentines Day, mainly because of the romantic nature and the colors. It is hiding in the black box at Carrie's Lingerie and named CB~Heart Set. It includes the matching bra, panties, and stockings in system layers and an Omega applier, and I made sure to show you a rear view so you could see the sexy seams up the back of the stockings. The delicate bows are a really nice touch too, and you will notice there are quite a few of them. 


Our mystery prize from Sweet E's is their Chocolate Jasmine 2 Lingerie, a sheer sensual slip with pretty bows and a delicate lace texture. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. This is such a flirty style, and there is something very romantic about chocolate, a color that should flatter most skin tones too.


We have two generous prizes to see here, starting with the outfit from Uni Boutique. It is called Fluffy Mini Set Grey Grey, and the top and miniskirt are each included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and Werwolf. They blend together so seamlessly that it could be mistaken for a dress, with quite an attractive style that shows off every curve. The other gift shown here is the terrific sandals, from Shae's Creations called Abrielle SKULL THONG Sandal White. They are provided in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High fits, with fun straps and a no-heel style. The color is a great neutral so you can wear these with many of your favorite wardrobe pieces.


For my final look of the evening, I am so pleased to share the LIVIA::Roxie Eyeshadow set you can find at The Makeup Room right now for just $85L per applier pack. Each provides 14 shades in your choice of Catwa, Lelutka, or Omega/Tattoo layers, with a really versatile range of colors to bring out the sparkle in your eyes. Your chosen color will have a rich smoky outer corner, just a fantastic look for any occasion. The LIVIA mainstore is linked in my right sidebar as usual, and the ending credits has the link to bring you directly to our event.

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

Be Your Own Hero at Sn@tch

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am excited to share the newest Fish 4 This set at Sn@tch, which is called Be Your Own Hero. There are 23 pieces in this set, and they are transferable so you can bring your friends and swap your spares until you all complete the set. Once you do, you will have all you need to combine into several hero costumes, lots of bold colors and accessories to choose from. There are 5 latex catsuits in system layers and Omega appliers, a mesh skirt that goes very well with the silver suit (sizes for standard, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine), a terrific hairstyle in 4 different colors, a collar, cuffs, tiara, boots, and even a lipstick in a system layer and Omega applier. As I have mentioned before, to fish for these you will need to purchase a 7 Seas fishing rod (available at Sn@tch as well as many other locations) and you will catch fish that can be worn as pets, along with these treats which come from the Sn@tch custom prize giver. You can set the rod to automatically decline the 7 Seas fish if you prefer, and just receive the custom items.


I will go from head to toe here in explaining what I'm wearing, so we start with the Sn@tch Hero Hair in Black. It is a long, flowing style with gentle feathering and a side part, very pretty whether you are dressed heroically or not. The outfit is the Sn@tch Starshine Latex Suit in Silver, a different style than the other suits that are part of this set since it is two pieces instead of one. The system layers have each color boxed up with shirt, pants, gloves, etc. and there is an Omega applier for the mesh bodies. The boots are Sn@tch All Star Platform Boots, each caught separately. They are versatile enough to go perfectly with all of these suits and so much more.


Here I have switched to the Blonde hero hair, which is just as lovely, and slipped into the Sn@tch Supple Latex Catsuit in Blue. I do hope that zipper stays in place during a superhero battle ;) I have also added the Sn@tch Leather Collar which attaches to the spine, and the Sn@tch Micah Metal Cuffs in left and right (separate catches) which really tie the look together nicely. There is plenty more to see though...


Here I have gone auburn with the Red version of the Hero Hair, and added the Sn@tch Hero Tiara in Black which attaches to the nose. You can adjust the position by editing and there is a built in resize script too, always handy. I have also switched into the Sn@tch Supple Latex Catsuit in Black, from the same Omega applier as the blue (and 2 other colors on that HUD) for any compatible mesh body. I am such a fan of the Omega system, and I'm sure you can see why.


This is our Supple Latex Catsuit in Purple, and there is definitely something sassy about this shade. I am still enjoying the Red hair and the collar and cuffs, but have added the Sn@tch Hero Lipstick here as well, via the Omega applier but there is a system layer in the waters too if you are a classic avatar type of gal. The lipstick is a deep crimson matte, and will help accentuate your pretty smile with a jolt of color.


For my final look of the night, I got a bit cheeky and creative ;) On the left you can see the rear view of the Supple Latex Catsuit in Red, and what a reveal it is...you can tell where the zipper starts that continues around and up to the front neckline, and there is some intriguing venting since you know those latex catsuits can get rather stuffy. On the right I am back in the first suit I showed you, the Starshine Latex Suit in Silver, but have added the Sn@tch Buffy Ruffled Skirt in Black. I decided my personal preference is that it looks best with the bare belly of this style catsuit, but you can absolutely wear it with whichever one works with your mood and tastes. I also changed my hair again to show you the fourth shade available of Hero Hair, the White which made me think of Storm from X-Men. These outfits are so fun for cosplay, or just any random day that you need a hero in your life so you decide to put on your big girl catsuit (upgrade from big girl panties perhaps?) and be your own hero.

It was a pleasant but tiring day, and I really enjoyed the Chinese New Year lunch among other treats of the day. I am fortunate to spend time with so many good people each weekend, it helps get me through some long weeks. I hope you're all having a great day/evening/weekend, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Guest List Treats

Hiya everyone! Tonight I return to The Guest List and their delicious strawberry hunt, made even sweeter by the Potluck Party theme that means some of our designers are sharing favorite RL recipes in addition to the exclusive offers for $100L or less at each cart. Most carts have a hidden strawberry (or more than one!) that contains a free gift, no group needed. I will be showing you some of the hunt prizes again tonight, along with the exclusive offer from the Entice cart which is a terrific bargain. Let's get peeking!


First we have the gift tucked inside the strawberry on the Entice cart, which is named Sit Still, Look Pretty - Aqua Plaid. This classy look comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, with built in belt and a lovely color. The style is nice for many types of occasions in SL, just the right touch of elegance.


Another hunt prize that has a vivid color that makes me happy is from I.M. Collection and is their {Ava} Purple dress. It is included in sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with playful front pocket zippers and the intriguing combo of sleeveless styling with a mock turtleneck. Reveal those alluring shoulders! Just find the strawberry and it is all yours.


Our prizes include another purple look too, as one of my favorite colors that does bring a smile to my face for sure. This is the ~EccentriciXi~ Outfit Char - Purple, and consists of the sweater in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink, plus the skirt in 5 standard, 5 fitmesh, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The black heels will go with just about anything you decide to wear them with, and come in Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP sizes. The clothing was boxed separately from the shoes, so be sure to unpack that to claim your full prize when you find the strawberry.


Spring will be here before we know it, and I will definitely be ready for it in this exclusive offer from Entice at The Guest List. It is their Sweet Dreams in Pink, a sleeveless dress with eye-catching print and a charming sweater that you can layer atop it for those chilly evenings where you still want to look your best. Each piece is included in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, all for a very reasonable $75L on their cart. Since it is an exclusive, you will only find it here, so be sure to visit by the end of the weekend as the cart sale closes on the 18th. 


My final look of the evening is a closer view of the nails I have been sporting in all of tonight's photos, which are a strawberry hunt prize from Shady Ladies called Nice As Pie Nails. There are appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega included, for fingers and toes in the case of Slink and Maitreya, with 6 designs as seen here. They are all accented with gold and have a gorgeous gloss to them, and I am very fond of these colors that will match so many wardrobe favorites of mine.

This weekend will be a busy one, and the incoming snow tomorrow evening will not make things particularly easy, but I am still looking forward to seeing some friendly people and picking up some indulgent locally made treats :) Chinese New Year foods for lunch including dumplings and rice noodles, handmade by a native of China, will be among my many purchases. I hope all of you have a terrific weekend planned, many magical magpie hugs to each of you!!

We Are On The Guest List

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit The Guest List, a cart sale event on the Flawless sim which is home to Entice along with plenty of other talented designers. These carts have exclusive offers for $100L or less, and most of them have at least one strawberry hidden containing a free gift for all the visitors who are lucky enough to find it. Those are what I am excited to show you a sampling of tonight. The event only lasts until the 18th, so you will want to hurry to explore and find those berries. Bonus, some of the designers are sharing their favorite recipes as well to celebrate the Potluck Party theme.


Applique` Chic has two strawberries on their cart, and they each contain a a sweet springy dress for us. On the left is AC Wishing Dress Rose #1, and on the right is Rose #2. Each is included in standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The style is suitable for so many occasions, from a relaxing day shopping to a romantic date or visit with friends.


I had to do a bit of editing here, LOL, just to cover my exposed assets ;) This sexy slip of a dress is one of the two prizes found at the 1 Hundred cart, and is called Little Lace Dress - Mint. It actually includes the dress and a matching pair of mesh panties, each in Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. The little hearts you see on the white lace area were added by me, and not a part of the actual dress. 


Our other generous gift from 1 Hundred is this colorful bodysuit called Thermal Bodysuit. I love the multiple soft shades, it reminds me of rainbow sherbet but with no calories ;) This gift should be wearable by just about everyone since it comes in system layers and an applier with several tabs of options like Omega, WowMeh, Lolas, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and more. I can envision some great layering possibilities too, wear this under a pair of mesh jeans or a long skirt, whatever suits your mood.


Don't forget to examine the SALTY cart for their hidden strawberry, so you can claim this flirty Peek A Boo Dress Black for free. It is included in sizes for Altamura, EVE Pulpy, EVE Slim, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The little lace panel in the front has a very prominent counterpart in the back, down the entire center of the back as a matter of fact, so be careful where you wear this one or be sure to layer a fun pair of panties beneath when in public. The hearts add romance, but the colors and revealing nature keep things edgy, it's a great balance.


For my final look of the night, I am showing off the nails from the berry at the LUNA Body Arts cart. Their gift is Ombre Nails and includes HUDs for Slink and Vista Bento, each with 10 designs total (5 solid colors and 5 ombre versions of the solids). They look to be a matte finish which I think works very well with the darkness of the colors. 

I must admit, the scarier the news gets each week, the more I appreciate the peace I find at my weekly acupuncture visits. I know it isn't for everyone, but it is making a difference for me with some persistent health issues, and just lying in a comfortable environment for 20-30 minutes and meditating with no distractions is just heavenly. Most of us don't take time for ourselves to relax like that, away from phones and tablets and a constant stream of information, and I've learned to love it. I feel a little less overwhelmed, if even for a short while. I know things are stressful right now, but I am still hopeful that you are all having a good day/evening, and I am sending lots of magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Conspiring with Cupid

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some more prizes from the Cupid's Conspiracy Hunt to share, a free gridwide hunt that will send you looking for lead tipped arrows in each store. There are some stops with male and female prizes, either in the same arrow or separate (the website indicates which) and some with unisex ones, in addition to some with just female prizes, and even one with just a male prize, so it is worth it to employ teamwork and bring your favorite guys and gals. The hunt runs until the end of the month, so you have plenty of time yet. 


First we have the reward from SA Quartermaster called SAQ Mesh Athena Outfit - Maroon, and believe it or not everything you see is linked into one easy to wear piece. I feel a little like Lara Croft in this adventurous outfit! It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine fits, and there is a HUD that offers 4 textures for the tank top and panties, all in the maroon color family. The gun does not come out/off and stays in its holster, so you are armed but not dangerous ;) There is also a prize of a utility hat with 10 colors via HUD that the guys can enjoy, right inside that same hidden arrow.


Next we visit Ambient Fashion, where you can find this sexy CCH Saint Veran Bodysuit inside their lead arrow. It is included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, and I was really drawn to the pretty color and the opening in the front that shows just a peek of what is waiting beneath. 


Maybe you have simply had enough of Valentine's Day, well the next couple of prizes should be right up your alley. This tank top is the prize from Hopes Creations called [HC] Anti-Cupid Tank, and thanks to a handy HUD you can choose from 3 colors with sentiments such as the two you see here (and a black background with a gas mask warning that love is in the air). The tank top itself comes in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and standard mesh sizes. 


Dallas McKenzie has this cheeky CCH18 Cropped Hoodie tucked inside their arrow, and it says Anti-Valentines across the front. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, all with that same logo and a fun hood in the back.


For my last look of the evening, I chose a seductive lingerie ensemble which is our prize from Artic Storm. It is called *AS* Kayla Lingerie & Robe Hearts, and includes the bra, panties, and robe each in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. As you can see from the side view, without the robe, those panties are very revealing in the back and will make for a nice surprise when you slide out of the robe. Just because there are hearts does not mean it is limited to any certain day of the year by the way, I have always sported hearts whenever I feel like it :)

My day was certainly not romantic...apparently my parents got into a little fender bender, which I'm sure will be a pain in the neck (hopefully no pun intended) to get repaired, and that is about the most interesting thing that my day held. I have been wondering if people in SL relationships tend to celebrate holidays together on the weekends if they fall midweek like this, to have more time to relax and enjoy the company. Xan and I spend a lot of online-but-not-just-SL time together so that has never been a big issue for us, but I can certainly see how it could. Well I hope you're all having a great day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
