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!!

Cupid's Conspiracy Hunt

Hiya everyone! Tonight I will be exploring a gridwide hunt with you, the Cupid's Conspiracy Hunt, which has an interesting backstory on the website to explain the lead tipped arrows we are searching for. Apparently Cupid had his heart broken so he hid the sinister arrows instead of his usual gold tipped ones that inspire love, so we have to find the lead tipped ones to save the grid from the loss of love. Then we will be rewarded for each we find, since they contain a free gift or two. The website will guide you to whether they are male, female, or unisex gifts inside, and I am delighted to show you some of the generous rewards.


First we have the Barbed Wire Kisses hunt prize, {BWK} CC Pyroa Outfit. It is loaded with buckles and studs since it is comprised of belts, so if you are a fan I do hope you find that hidden lead arrow. The top and skirt are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. This is a tricky outfit to wear in non-adult sims, so I would suggest layering some matching undies or pasties beneath in those instances.


The sentiment on this gift from Fire Within made me smile, then a closer look at the stick figures inside the heart made me giggle by taking it so literally. This is the *FW* Keep Calm Women's Long Sleeve T, included in standard mesh sizes. Good news for the guys, there is a men's version inside this arrow too. I am wearing a frequently appearing marketplace gift, jeans by Delizio which come in several colors for classic and mesh bodies, with the shirt.


Next I visited Fukin Cute, where I claimed this charming Vday Top & Shorts for free, for finding their hidden arrow. Each piece comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions, and there is a HUD for each with 6 mix and match textures. Some are from Cupid's happy side and others are a bit darker, so whatever mood Valentine's puts you in can be reflected on your clothing. The men's prize is also really thorough, a full outfit with HUDs as well, so everyone can enjoy finding this prize.


Maybe you need something sassy that shows you are not a big fan of love and all the mushy stuff that this holiday brings, well head on over to Mishmash Fusion and find their Kiss On The Mouse Bodice - I love you NOT. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a pattern that says things like Down with Love and Love Sucks. There is a tank top for the men with a similar saying "I love you NOT" in a separate hidden arrow, so be sure you find the right one (or both).


For my final look of the night, we search MystRie to find their lead arrow, so we can claim this terrific reward called Your Cupid Dress. Much more than just a dress, it includes the stockings and shoes you see here as well. The dress comes in sizes for Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a standard fitted version. The shoes are in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High sizes, while the stockings are provided in the same sizes as the dress. I love the bows and wings on the shoes, and the stockings remind me of legwarmers from days gone by. The colors are so fun too, vivid hot pink with creamy golden trim.

I will not really be doing anything special in RL for Valentine's Day, and I know that people's opinions of the day are dramatically mixed, ranging from it being a favorite day of the year, to despising it as a commercial holiday/waste of money. I like it but am not as excited as I used to be. However you feel about it, you can make it into a Palentine's or Galentine's Day and celebrate with friends or just pretend it's an ordinary Wednesday, I hope you enjoy your day your way. Magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Still Dazzling with Free Dove

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have a variety of selections from the DAZZLE event to show you, and you have until the 25th to enjoy a visit there so plenty of time to grab those demos and then go back to pick up your favorite items. There are exclusives from every designer, and a perfect them for February of Dark Vintage Romance and Passion that has been interpreted very creatively by all. I also have the rest of the Free Dove mini hunt from anny's Fashion to share, mainly the ones found at their mainstore but one of the shirts from yesterday's post found at Free Dove made a reappearance. I always enjoy the mini hunts, and find that DAZZLE is a terrific place to find ways to treat myself each month. 


The first thing you may notice here is my hair, which you can purchase at DAZZLE if you visit the Firelight Hair display. It is called Aida GEN2 and comes in several color sets of 12 for $250L each, a darks with 18 shades for $275L, or a fatpack for $699L. The style is a long sleek asymmetric bob, very pretty in any color and with any type of clothing. Those color HUDs have a new twist for Generation 2 by the way, each color has a wispy or a rich/full effect selection, explained in the included notecard, so you can customize the look even more. The dress is a hunt prize by anny's Fashion and found at their mainstore, called [AF] Crystal Dress Black Lace. Find the red star to claim it and you will receive in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. I accessorized with a beautiful and versatile jewelry set by Glint, their Hearts and Beads Set with HUD, which is just $50L at DAZZLE this round. The HUD lets you choose from 8 colors for your inner gems (white above), 8 for the beads (black above), and 3 for the metal, and even lets you resize your necklace and earrings. The earrings are mostly hidden by my hair, but they are a romantic match with heart shaped gems like the necklace. 


Here we see the same stunning necklace with a few HUD color changes, and another hunt prize from anny's Fashion mainstore called [AF] Crystal Dress Brown Lace. Since it is the same style as the one above, it comes in the same mesh sizes to fit most shapes and bodies. I had more fun with HUDs and became a blonde, one of the dozen shades in the Blonds set. The inset also shows another gem and bead color for our Glint necklace, such a handy way to make sure it matches all of your favorite outfits with a few quick clicks.


This [AF] Cora Plum Lace Tank should look familiar if you saw my post yesterday, as one of the prizes found at the Free Dove. Tonight I am wearing it with a great pair of jeans from their mainstore, [AF] Eva Jeans Plum. Hidden in a red star, you will find sizes for fitmesh standard, Belleza, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, gently distressed and cut low but not overly so. I also changed my hair with the Brunette HUD to one of their dozen pretty shades, because HUDs are wonderful :) 


Back over to DAZZLE for some more romance, this is the SALTY - Love Spell Dress that is one of their romantic choices this round, and it is only $99L. It includes standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique versions, and the details really caught my eye like the train, ruffled neckline, red insets in front and back, and the intriguing bow on the belt. You might want to consider this for your Valentine's Day plans, or any night out that you want to look your best.


One last look for the evening, while you are at DAZZLE you can find several sexy somethings at the Bliss display. This is one of their lingerie offerings, Kaila Lingerie - Darks, which is an Omega HUD with 5 different colors to choose from for $149L. There is also a Lights pack with 5 paler tones, and other styles including some beautiful stockings you can choose to pair with the lingerie. I was particularly drawn to the contrast stitching in white on this set, and the fun crossed straps. I chose a light strawberry tone from the Aida Blonds hair from Firelight, this style really does look elegant in any shade.

My "not-so-random from my perspective" advice of the day: if you or your doctor has a hunch that something is wrong, it is not overreacting to have tests to find out either way and could save your life in the long run. Sometimes persistent symptoms can be subtle and it is all too easy to choose to ignore what your body is telling you. As you can tell, I am still reeling from a family member's medical news and since I had dinner with them again earlier it is fresh in my mind and heart. I hope you are all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
