I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didn’t see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked
Up in my bedroom fast asleep.
Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

Caleb and I wish you all a very Happy Holiday, no matter how you celebrate it please be safe and have fun!

MadPea’s Magical Christmas Hunt Teaser

It’s that time of year – Christmas is here (and so is MadPea’s Magical Christmas Hunt)! We’re not alone in our mad scramble to spread holiday cheer both in RL and SL, but Santa seems to have found himself in a bit of madness as well! And we, as the helpful MadPea elves that we are, need to find all the enchanted toys scattered all over the grid to *drumroll* SAVE CHRISTMAS! \o/  /o\  \o/ Okay, don’t mind me – probably had a bit too much of that Rum and Bourbon Eggnog.

MadPea’s Magical Christmas Hunt for Enchanted Toys will be the last hunt MadPea Productions puts on for 2017, and I am confident it will be the best one yet. As you all know, I am a massive fan of the MadPea hunts. They are simple, straightforward, eventful fun for two weeks. Tons of exploration, plenty of collaboration opportunities, and good ol’ fashioned competition – MadPea hunts are not “just any kind of hunt.” Only costing 100L to participate you are rewarded with heaps of great gifts/prizes.

What kind of awesome gifts? Well I am sure you’d like to see for yourself here on their official Facebook page!

The MadPea Christmas Hunt – How It Works

Here’s a brief breakdown on how the MadPea Christmas Hunt works. For $100L, you can purchase a MadPea Christmas Hunt HUD at the MadPea Toy Factory that grants you ability to hunt for enchanted toys that have been placed out gridwide from December 14th to December 28th. This Enchanted Toy Finder HUD will also randomly assign you to a team – Green, Red, or White. To find these toys, the HUD acts like a compass/radar that leads you to them.

There are three types of toys that you can find for points – Robots, Stuffed Toys, and Wheelies. There is also special kind of hunt item (A chimney! – now wouldn’t it be funny if you get stuffed down the chimney if you found this one?!) that will give an instant prize instead of points. Robots last for 72 hours and are 50 points each. Stuffed Toys last for 48 hours and are 25 points each. Wheelies last for 24 hours and are 10 points each. With these points, you can redeem some fantastic prizes that can be found here.

As a team, unlock prizes (more than 30 total!) the more toys that are captured. Each unlocked prize gets better and better (and most likely bigger too), so you definitely want to be gathering as many toys as you can find! Pick and choose which of these fantastic prizes you want with the points you have accumulated. Everyone has two weeks to work together, as a team, to unlock all the prizes.

To learn more about the MadPea Magical Christmas Hunt, go here: http://www.madpeagames.com/christmas-hunt/

PRO TIP: You can change teams (only once) at the very beginning of purchasing a hunt HUD before you have found any toys. So if you are hunting with friends, you can all choose to be on the same team color. Again, this is a one-time courtesy that can only be done at the very beginning.

The MadPea Christmas Hunt has already started! What are you waiting for? Let me give you my Top Reasons Why You Should Be Joining The Hunt:

1. Prizes – It is only Day 4 of the whole two week MadPea Christmas Hunt and teams have unlocked quite a few prizes already! Each of these prizes are of high quality, perfect for the Christmas season. Awesome prizes – need I say more?

2. Competition – Race for points and unlock more prizes as a team entity. The friendly competitiveness opens up so many opportunities for engagement and interaction among not only the teams, but with each individual MadPea hunter as we all embark on a gridwide adventure together. Those who are individually competitive are also recognized, as the daily top 3 hunters from each team are shown on the MadPea Christmas Hunt Scoreboard website here.

3. Community – While going sim to sim, hunting for toys, everyone I have met have been incredibly nice and supportive, even if they are essentially on different teams. Though each time color is competing against one another, we are still collectively working towards a common goal of collecting more points to unlock more prizes. In that sense, I love the feeling of a supportive and cooperative community the MadPea events seem to carry without fail.

4. Dynamic Gameplay – Each day’s hunt will be different. The toys are scripted to only last for a limited amount of time (24, 48, or 72 hours), making the hunt a lot more dynamic. Toys may disappear from where you may have last found them the day before and may reappear at a completely different location on the same sim. New toys are being placed out daily at different sims, making the hunt a constant mystery of where the HUD will take you next.

5. Exploration – This is what I find most exciting. I love seeing where this hunt will take me next as it fuels my drive to keep hunting for toys every day. I love seeing new places and experiencing what sorts of treasure they may offer. Note that a lot of these places these toys on this hunt will appear in some sort of commercial setting, but if you are a shopper like me, I love seeing what new products are out there that I may not have known existed before. The noncommercial sims are the ones I love most though – those are the ones I can explore and take neat pictures of, celebrating the creativity of the sim’s decoration.

6. Professional – Like I have said in my previous MadPea Hunt reviews, MadPea is the golden standard of a professional business in SL. Trust that the experience you are participating in has been tested over and over again to ensure that each participant has a good experience. You will be well taken care of by MadPea staff as well as a very a large MadPea community at your fingertips for prompt assistance.

ALL OF THIS FOR JUST $100L!!! This is not your normal freebie hunt – this is a fun and dynamic two week experience with amazing prizes that you’ll actually want and top of the line customer/hunter support.

Usually I clump the informative aspect of the hunt in with my personal experience such as showcasing several neat sim locations I have visited, but that forces me to put the single blog out later (maybe a week in) after I have spent some time doing the actual hunt and documenting my experience. Now, I am splitting the informative and personal posts up so I can get the information out quickly for readers to have more time to actually do the hunt. Then, my personal experiences and feedback can come anytime later, so check out my follow up post for the MadPea Christmas Hunt Experience that will come next week!

It’s Time To Decorate

H A P P Y   H O L I D A Y S ~ Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great day.  Mine is coming to a close as I am writing this blog.  But I reallly wanted to blog this dress.  I think Just Because has been hitting it hard with the dresses lately, and this one just totally captured my eyes.  This is a perfect holiday dress and you can get it from FaMESHed right now! There are so many colors, and they are all amazing, but I have to admit the red really caught my eye.  Here is the funny thing, I normally am not a red kinda girl, even on the holidays would pick a green over the red.  So you have to know how amazing this dress color with texture is for me to wear it ♥ I cannot get over it.  And and and … MY NECKLACE! This is a new thing too I never knew that Just Because made accessories.  But this you can get from Pay It Forward, and its TRANS! This makes for the most perfect gift ever.  So people go get your girls this gorgeous thing.  Its completely customizable with the colors, and I adore the fit with this.  I had no issues to adjust just slightly to make my fat neck fit into this ♥

If you are curious about my background, just head over to Cosmopolitan and you can find this beauty in four gorgeous colors.  I really liked the blue because I felt this could be more usable after the holidays.  But the pieces of this background are completely brilliant in the fact that it gives your pictures a bit of oomph and a quick and easy way to take a snap shot.  So make sure that you go check out the event there are other cute items there as well ♥

Ok, I am going to end this post here, you can find all the informations below.  Again, Happy Holidays and have fun shopping!

Pick a Tree

Caleb and I are on the hunt for the perfect Christmas Tree.  Taking a little break to snap a picture together, because we tend to not do it as much as we like.  I am very pleased with how my little picture came out.  I am going to state now, I did work to the picture via the dress I am wearing so please make sure if you are interested in this item, to test out the demo.  There is one at the main store.

So basically this dress and hair duo is from Exile.  You can find this pretty furry dress at the main store location as a new release.  I have to say I appreciate when a dress is made with a hood that a intended hair is styled with it.  So thank you Kavar for doing just that.  No fuss, in finding one of the millions of hair in my inventory to fit that hood! Now, this dress comes in a pack of three colors, but there are different pack choices to make.  Personally for the holidays, I wanted to stick with Reds and Greens.  Since most people tend to choose red, I wanted to showcase a little different and go Green! Its a beautiful color and I had fun prancing around in it.  Again I am stating to please check out the demo before you purchase as I did manipulate the fur on the dress! But it was so pretty, I wanted to see it fuzzy.  The hair is a nice touch, with a partial side sweep of a look.  The bonus is that you can get the hair and not wear it in the dress.  Wearing it separately is always an option too! ♥

Come a Little Closer

Today I am taking a bit different approach to my close up picture.   I got a bit artsy, kinda … not really, I am sure many people have done this style before.  But I really wanted to show case some really cute and amazing items.  I am not sure where I want to start.  Uhm…. *three hours later* ok the hair.  Exile.  So cute, Its big floofy and adorable.  It reminds me of a semi Farrah Fawcett looking hair.  If you are old enough to know who she is you will understand.  (I AM OLD!) This gorgeous look is new at the Main Store … just waiting for you to pick her up.  So make sure you go do that and have big beautiful floofy hair too!

I am bringing another Christmas Special necklace to the table.  This is again Cae.  This holiday wreath is gorgeous and would make the perfect gift for that someone in your life that loves to have all the beautiful things.  This precious necklace comes with a HUD … but personally why would you want to change the seasonal color of this wreath.  The Christmas theme is just what this necklace is all about.  This can be found at the Tannenbaum event with all the other cute accessories I shown in the previous post.  You can pick up matching earrings too! If you just want parts that is okay, and if you want the complete set then you can buy the full package and save a little L (Who doesn’t wanna do that!) Make sure you head on over and check out the event and her store!

So my Two for One here … I changed my face (AGAIN!) I am sporting a new Catwa head, which is new for me.  This is Lily, and if you got her on the day of release you were able to save 50% off the order.  Which for some is the best deal ever.  The good thing about Catwa is she allows you to take the demo head and allows demo skins to be placed on it so that you can find the perfect match of what you are looking for! Which leaves you wanting to try all the skins, and its nice to play with certain aspects of this face.  Its fully functional in the demo.  I will admit switching over has been a bit hard for me being I am use to a different head, but it only took a bit to figure out what I wanted and needed to make this HUD work the best way for me.   I chosen the new skin from League.  I swear her skins are best for the Catwa head.  I love the details and how she doesn’t have the oh so young look to her face.  I feel young at heart and still hold a bit of youth to myself.  There are several shades to choose from so make sure you are trying them all out to find that right tone for you.  I am wearing pale.  But to be honest the pale is a slightly tan color and one of the most beautiful in the packs.  There are several make up options as well as freakles (yes that is how I say it).  Either way you would be happy with this look ♥

Ok so  I am not rambling all night, check out the credits below so you know what is what, and go out and have fun shopping.  Remember its the holidays and gift cards at these places are totally amazing!!
