Shop and Hop is Gleaming

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am delighted to tell you about the Valentine's Shop and Hop event, where you will find over 80 designers in 4 romantically designed sims who are all offering discounted merchandise along with free gifts. Tonight I will be showing you some gifts found on the Gleaming sim, as I personally just find it simpler to sort them by sim and show you one at a time so you know exactly which landmark to follow. I am mostly focused on fashion, but there was a sweet companion that caught my eye too :) The event just opened yesterday and runs until the 23rd of February.

My first look is the [Aleutia] Eileen Dress (Maitreya) Special Valentine's Edition, a sweet mini with fluttery skirt and pretty hearts adorning it. As the name implies, it is sized for the Maitreya body, and will look nice with your favorite shoes, perhaps white or pink? 

Next we have a beautiful gift from Gabrielle Hamelin, their {GH} Spring Bliss Sequins Gift. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, and Hourglass, with a HUD to adjust colors for the materials. The HUD gave me an error message when I added it, but I saw mentioned in many groups (and on plurk, etc.) that SL was being weird with scripts this morning so I would guess that was the reason. I didn't necessarily need the HUD since I like the way this looks just as it is :)

Does the romance of the upcoming holiday make you feel a little bit sassy? If so, this gift from Faida should be perfect for you :) It is called It's Not Me, and comes in a Maitreya mesh body size in a soft pink shade. The front reads "It's NOT ME it's you" with the NOT ME across a darker pink ribbon, and there are a few small hearts on the design too. The cropped style with short sleeves add to the sass too, while the pastel color keeps it from being overly edgy.

United Colors has a pretty dress for us, their UC_Cupid_dress_red. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with a handy HUD to make this extra sexy. You can choose from 7 colors for the top and bottom sections in the middle (the main dress stays that pretty red) with options to make them sheer and to turn materials off or on. You can even hide those triangles in the middle, top or bottom or rear (the back is designed like the front with a wedge shaped panel) and turn the collar on or off. That is a lot of variety!!

For my final look of the evening, I added a friendly little companion, the gift from KittyCatS! called I LOVE YOU! Angel 2020. It flies around chasing the pink heart that says I love you, and one flank reads "I love you" as you can see above while the other has a heart and arrow on it. There are plenty of great details to appreciate here, and I think you will enjoy seeing him/her in person when you claim this thoughtful gift.

It was a pretty good day here, with a nice visit to my parents' for dinner where we looked through some old pictures and had some laughs. It was a stroll down memory lane for sure :) I have a busy Saturday planned as usual, and I am looking forward to it since I'll get to see some awesome people and pick up tasty treats. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
