Happy New Year

 Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the Shop & Hop winter shopping event once again, this time the Snowflake sim/region which is one of 9 that you can explore until the 3rd of January to find discounted offers plus lots of free gifts. There is a lot to see here, and I have randomly selected gifts to show you to give you an idea of the many possibilities. I am also very excited to be moving on from 2020 and am moving into the new year with optimism and good wishes to all.

My first look of the night is an ideal representation of the name of the sim it's found on! It is the Secrets of Gaia gift called SoG Damia Gown Snowflake LE ~Silver~, and it comes in sizing for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The styling is so elegant, with its daring leg slit and bare back with ties gently draped down the center. 

Next we visit [The Forge] and have a look at one of their gifts for us called Candice Bodice, Cream. It actually consists of the bodice and matching shorts, each in Legacy and Maitreya sizes. I was drawn to the simple yet lovely satin texture, and the front pocket detail of the shorts. I am also pleased to show you the gift from Stardust called Mochiyuki - Blue Tattoo Gift. That would be the very pretty dusting of bright blue snowflakes from the nape of my neck to between my shoulderblades, included in system/BOM layers plus Omega appliers in 50%, 75%, and 100% opacity. This allows you to choose the brightness you desire, if you want a more faded look or a fresh pop of color.

Another gift from [The Forge] is their alluring Xandra Bodice, Red which is more of a bodysuit in my opinion :) It also comes in Legacy and Maitreya sizes, with lots of straps and cutouts that reveal plenty of skin while hiding just the right places. The deep shade of red is a classic for any time of year.

Here I slipped back into the shorts from photo #2, the Candice gift from The Forge, to show you two terrific tops. (Sorry I did things out of order, I have been a bit distracted....) On the left I am still chuckling at the Stories&Co. Mitch Tank Top - Merry, which clearly says Let It Snow, right? ;) Claim this gift and you'll receive sizes for Freya, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Maitreya, Maitreya Flat, Maitreya Petite, Hourglass Petite, and Physique Petite bodies. There is also a HUD for solid, sheer, or worn transparency levels, so give them each a click to try them out. The charming look on the right is the -PULSE- Silky Top - Maitreya Lara / Blue gift, which does include the single size mentioned in the name. That is a gorgeous color, and the open neckline really draws attention too. 

For my final look of the evening, I would like to dazzle you with the gift from Son!a-Edge named Dubai Long Dress Xmas. It is a very detailed gown with lots of options, thanks to the materials HUD that offers 6 metal colors and on/off for the lace (bra cups), roses, and sheer skirt. I turned the sheer skirt off for the right side of this image so you could get an idea of what that looks like, and you can see the way the light reflects like sequins all over this beauty. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. 

Whew, what a day! I had dinner at my parents' and we discussed last night's news (death of my ex-husband) among other things, then home where I have been hearing fireworks off and on for several hours. I know the new year won't be instantly perfect or even that much better right away, but I have to believe that as it unfolds it will slowly improve over what 2020 was. That is my hope for each and every person reading this, a better year ahead with much love, peace, and understanding. Many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
