    Hot in Herre Remix

    This is a song I find myself scrolling back to and playing over and over.... The smooth, sultry sounds of this remix reminds me of the many times when I would sit back and relax on a lounger back home in Miami. I would FREQUENT the Standard Hotel on South Beach almost every Thursday or Friday night and listening to this takes me there again, at about 5:45pm, just as the sun is starting to take a dip into the bay....taking me with it.


    This is an amazing bodysuit called Natalia by Beauty Factory. It is rigged for Maitreya - Petite - Legacy - Perky - Kupra - Kups and comes in a solid and fishnet version to really make em sweat. It is available NOW until the 30th at the BLACK FAIRhttps://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Luminoso/127/119/21 

    Keep up with my Beauty Factory family:

    Luck and Gifts at KitCat

     Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting the KitCat store, whose free group tag gives you access to several group gifts in addition to the 10 lucky boards right by their front door. They feature clothing for the Maitreya body, and lots of great accessories to help you jazz up your outfits to suit your personal tastes. I enjoyed my visits there, and even wound up chatting with some other residents who were hanging out at the lucky boards waiting for our initials to appear. I am delighted to show you a few of the prizes I won, and a couple of group gifts I eagerly claimed from the other side of the small wall behind the front desk. 


    My first look tonight is a group gift that you could use to wrap up an evening, their KitCat - Onesie Group Gift. It includes a handy HUD to let you choose from 3 colors of plaid patterns (the two above and green) with options to turn the hood and socks each off or on. I hid the socks on the right but left the hood showing so you could get a better look :)


    Several of the gifts and prizes are tops, so I have changed into the black pair of Delizio jeans from their free marketplace fatpack, which includes several other colors each in system/BOM layers plus appliers for Maitreya and Omega. The top is a group gift called KitCat - Tied Tank GG, and fits the Maitreya body. There is also a HUD provided, with 12 colors for the tank top and 2 for the trim, black and white. This is certainly a flirty look, and the top will look great with any pants or skirt you wish to wear it with. 


    This cute top is the KitCat - HeartSick Tied Tube Top Lemon, and you can win it from their lucky boards if your initial shows up. Like their other clothing it is made for the Maitreya body, and has slender detached sleeves as well as the knot referenced in its name. The stripes are a pretty touch too!


    This lucky board prize is the MS Design :: Torn Top (Red) which leads me to believe that the store had a rebrand somewhere along the way :) Some of the prizes and gifts have the MS Design name while others say KitCat. This sexy prize includes the top, the collar (separate piece), and a HUD with 4 metal choices for the chain on the collar piece. Wear it with or without the collar, totally up to you, and either way you will have bare shoulders and daringly bare belly and lower breasts. 


    My final look of the evening is another lucky board prize, this one called :: MS Design :: Fuzzy Cozy Sweater Red. There are plenty of possibilities here, as it includes not only the sweater and the text overlay add-on, but a HUD offering two color choices for the sweater (solid or striped) and a bevy of choices for the text overlay. You can pick from 17 text sayings or 6 symbols, just click the arrows on the HUD to get from page to page. The text I chose on the left, Nap Queen, seemed all too appropriate after my week so far, LOL, and the symbol of a cat's face peeking over the light grey stripe was too cute not to share. 

    Whew, it is almost Friday and I am relieved because this week has been a wild one. The blood draw from Tuesday had a problem because my doctor used the wrong code for one of the tests (?) and I had to go back in for another draw. Apparently the tubes the first time have something in them to clot the blood and then the blood is spun and the unclotted part is analyzed. But the correct test needed to be analyzed without being clotted, so two more tubes were drawn today. I had my podiatrist appointment yesterday with lots of digging around my ingrown toenails *cringe* so I have had some interesting days. Tomorrow is dinner at my parents' house, and that won't involve anything sharp or stressful so I can look forward to it ;) Meanwhile I hope you are all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

    Halcyon Shop and Hop

     Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features gifts found at the Shop & Hop Winter shopping event, all on the Halcyon sim. That is just one of nine festively decorated sims (I believe Linden Labs prefers the term region to sim, but I admit I slip up a lot because I've been calling them sims for well over a decade) with a terrific collection of designers offering special discounted selections and gifts for all visitors. The event hops away on the 3rd of January, so be sure to stop by before then and enjoy. 


    My first look tonight starts with the UNA Carol Winter Version top, which is created for the Maitreya mesh body. It has extra long sleeves that hide our hands, and the appearance of a reindeer sweater layered above a seasonal patterned blouse. I am wearing my favorite marketplace gift with them, the white pair from the fatpack of Delizio jeans that appear here quite often. Another fun addition is my earrings, which are from the Eclipse Art Studio gift called .:EA:.Studio Rock SnowMan. There are pairs in silver and gold each of the black, classic, and white varieties. In the inset you can see a closer view of the white snowmen in silver, with studded belt and skull-adorned scarf for those rock touches. 


    Another shirt that made me smile is the gift from Eclectic Stars, their Anya - Invading Christmas. The tree on the front is made of characters from a very familiar old video game, who may have invaded your space in an arcade once upon a time ;) It comes in standard mesh sizes along with versions for eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. 


    I also found a wonderful gift at the Entice display, called Blackbird Outfit - Green. This top and skirt are each included in Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizes. I enjoy the slightly asymmetrical neckline that leads to bare shoulders above the 3/4 length sleeves, and the knit texture makes this a great choice for winter. 


    Maybe some plaid will make your new year wishes come true, then please claim the gift from Faida called December. It is a strapless mini with matching ruffle at its hem, in sizes for Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Flat Chested, Maitreya Petite, Hourglass Petite, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Fine Mini bodies. It will be flattering on any and all of them, and I think it will go well with whatever accessories you might be in the mood to add. 


    My final look of the evening is a formal one with a flirty twist. The .:FlowerDreams:.Seda dress gift starts with a wrap in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. It continues with pants in system/BOM layers as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink appliers, then there are flexi skirts for left, right, and the train in the back. At first I was looking for a top, then I realized the wrap is designed to cover the necessary parts and not much more ;) There is the flirty twist I mentioned, as it has bare shoulders and midriff yet maintains an air of elegance. The fiery red skirt really flutters when we move, too, so walking or dancing will be a visual treat.

    At this point, I am just so eager for a new year and to put this one behind us...I have no RL plans until Friday, so I am focusing on finding any positive things I can and spending time online with people I cannot see in person yet. I hope you are all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
