Festive greens and reds

All of this running around.

Hey there fabulous readers, how are your advent runs coming along? I must admit that I’ve lagged behind these past couples of days thanks to all festive busyness in RL but thankfully there’s the FabFree Advent Listing to lean on and get me right back on track again. It’s also really awesome that some advents allow for past prizes to be delivered or purchased and one such store that’s doing this is Entice. I came to know about this merchant thanks to Kathryn but finally got myself around to visiting when I saw that they were doing an advent calendar. The prizes are free to group members and the Entice group is free to join but if you’re short on group slots (like me) you’ll be able to purchase the advent gifts for 25L each. Past prizes are available for 25L so drop by to the store and, er, Entice yourself so to speak by trying on the demos for the advent gifts provided so that you can pick out and purchase your favorites.

Demos lead to good things.

Trying on demos is what lead me to the stunning emerald number pictured. I’m still using a mostly ‘classic avatar’ and it can get a bit daunting when I don’t see the words ‘standard mesh sizing’ on the vendor ads but with the help of those demos under the Entice advent tree, the deal was sealed. Not only is the color for the Make Me Dress (advent gift day 6) vibrant and eye catching, its design is unique as well. The top and skirt part of the dress are linked together with circular chains, making this a fun and flirty outfit that’s perfect for all those Christmas parties. The Make Me dress comes in sizes for Slink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya and Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus.  Personally, the Venus fit was perfect so throw on a demo and an alpha layer that’s lying around in your inventory and experiment!

Scientia potentia est

Have you ever been to the Fabulously Free in SL flickr feed? It’s a great way to learn about new free gifts and that was how I caught wind that N-Core was giving out two free pairs of shoes! Pictured above are the Kate Christmas heels which are very fitting for the season with its vivid red and white color scheme. The gift folder includes sizes for N-Core High feet, Belleza High feet, Maitreya High Feet, TMP High feet and Slink High feet. N-Core is very much a new to me shoe store but I’m really loving this well-made pair of classic heels. If you have a group spot open, N-Core has also put out a gorgeous pair of boots as their group gift which you can read all about in Love’s post {HERE}. Find your gifts under the Christmas tree!

Who does your hair?

The gifts for the Truth VIP group have been very generous and the trend continues into December with not one but two gifts. Pictured is the Irena hair, a long and wavey style that is simply elegant. You can choose to make things more casual with a beanie (color hud provided) or add bangs. The Irena hair also comes with a seperate fit so that it won’t cut into your front. As always with Truth VIP group gifts, this hairstyle comes in a fatpack of colors.  The join fee for the Truth VIP group stands at 350L, a good deal since you’ll be getting two hair fatpacks.

Have you joined up yet?

In this post {HERE}, I mentioned that 7 Deadly s{K}ins was going to make it’s group free to join on the 28th of November. Well, that date has come and gone so if you haven’t taken the opportunity to join up now is your chance to do so. There is an advent going on at the store for both females and males that are open to group members. You’ll need to pay the 1L for the day’s gift but it will be immediately refunded back to you so that means you’ll get a different skin a day for free this month if you join up! Pictured is the Day 6 prize Feeb’s Fabienne which ones in one tone and cleavage/no cleavage options. There are also appliers for Tango, Phatazz and Slink (full body) included in the gift package. If you’ve missed some of the advent gifts, those past prezzies are still available for 50L (pay vendor 99L and have 49L refunded immediately) 7 Deadly s{K}ins have always been consistent with the quality of their skins and the generosity of their gifts so join up now as free group will only last till the first of January.

Belt Up, Betty! Festive...

Musings..

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!   So the song goes.    For once I’m actually organised – my presents are wrapped and labelled, however,  I just have to do the hated Christmas Cards – it’s my worst job,,,ever !!   If I had my way I wouldn’t write any but my elderly father feels it’s the ‘right’ thing to do so I have to write his for him.   Am sure he’s more than capable of doing it himself but he gives me the puppy eyes and I always,,,ALWAYS end up writing them !!   Bigger fool me !

Today was the day we started to decorate to office as work (as mentioned this is year competition of best dressed department which we are mandatory to win!) – I walked in the door at 8pm tonight after spending three hours sewing (yes,,you heard me correctly) cotton wool balls onto pieces of nylon thread to look like snow hanging from the window frames – to say I’ve lost my Christmas spirit (just for today mind you!) is an understatement!!   We did have a giggle though – couple of glasses of Proscetto and all was good !!

Moral of this story is – Love it or hate it (or however you celebrate (or don’t celebrate) at this time of year) the festive period is upon and you can’t escape it even if you wanted too – it’s everywhere!!    I embrace Christmas – I have wonderful Christmas memories from childhood which have continued to grow with every Christmas bringing a new memory.  Today’s memory will be about Cotton Wool Balls!!    #NoMoreBalls #BahHumbug #ChristmasYay!
