Hugs and Kisses

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have something special to tell you about, with a limited amount of time so you will want to get started soon :) The event is the XOXO 2020, and it is part hunt and part luck since you must locate (generally not tricky to do) the object which is a neon mobile phone this round. Then you say "xoxo" in local chat to it, and it will either give you the gift or tell you to try again in 24 hours. The event runs until the 16th, and you can use their free HUD or just visit the stores from their website. The HUD lets you mark off the ones you have successfully claimed by clicking the ♥ before each store name and turning it red, and it shows you a photo of the prize. If you really want a particular prize but the phone is not feeling generous, you have the option to purchase it for $50L each. There are Hocus Pocus events each Halloween with the same concept, organized by the same folks and with many stores participating in both, so if this sounds familiar that could be why. I wish you lots of luck in convincing those phones to give you their goodies! I still need a bit of luck too, as there are about 8 prizes I still need after 3 nights of trying.

Decoy's prize is this beautiful Rosalie Crop Top: XOXO Duo Pack. The bubblegum and mint colors are each provided in Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing, and have long sleeves with bare shoulders and delicate lace trim. I love the tiny opening above the buttons in the front and the way it is tied closed. The tops will look great with whatever you choose to wear it with, like how I picked the Delizio jeans in white from their marketplace fatpack freebie.

Another top with vibrant colors is the prize from Pink Cream Pie, called !PCP Cris Crop Tee XOXO 2020. It says LOVE in bubble letters and has all sorts of details like hearts and stars in the pattern, and shredded fabric both front and back. The gift includes sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

I love ZFG's sense of humor (starting with the fact that the store's name is short for zero f*cks given) so I was not surprised by how much I appreciate their XOXO gift. It is called Recommend FP (for fatpack I believe) and is a simple black shirt with 8 clever options for the wording on the front. They are "reviews" of marriage, adulting, dating, real life (the only 2-star instead of one!), giving a f*ck, going outside (seen above), being single, and having kids. You can choose which image from the included HUD, and of course it works on all the sizes included: eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. "It was cold and there were people. Would not recommend." That would definitely be my review of these chilly days lately!

The prize from Michi. is their XoXo Pj Set Pink, consisting of solid pink and pink lace versions for a little variety. The top and shorts each come in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh body sizes, and it looks so comfy in either version. On the lace top, the band of white lace does continue around to the front to underline the bust. 

For my final look of the evening, I decided we needed a closeup of the lovely nails from Rainbow Sundae called Lovestruck Nails. They feature 10 different soft shades accented with white hearts edged in pink. There are appliers included for Maitreya and Omega, so there is a lot of compatibility with various mesh hands. All the pastel pink and purple shades are nice choices for Valentines Day or any time of year really.

Tonight's hockey game was not as enjoyable as last night's, but then I found out that a totally different game was postponed because one of the players (Jay Bouwmeester, of the St. Louis Blues) collapsed on the bench and had to be rushed to the hospital. The well-being of any player is far more important than the game itself, so I am eager to hear an update and hoping it was nothing serious. It made my being upset about my team losing seem trivial. Meanwhile I hope you're all having a nice day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
