It's Advent Calendar Time!

Hiya everyone! I am making a change in my blogging schedule to give everyone more time to visit everywhere for Advent calendars before they change at night. I hope it works out well :) I have always enjoyed popping around the grid and claiming all the exciting, generous gifts everyday. Some stores offer a full calendar from December 1st to the 24th, while others do a traditional 12 days of Christmas from the 13th to the 24th. Since some started at Midnight SLT, I do have some goodies to share so let's get to it!

This first photo has several different Advent gifts, so let's start with the dress. This is "Amira" from Bees Heaven, and comes in standard mesh sizes with a very long slit down each side. No group needed, just visit and click the correct day. Next in the inset, we have a look at Hello Dave's first gift from their first Advent calendar, free with the group tag. They will be offering a different design each day instead of doing the weekly HUDs, so fun! You might notice I look a bit more flushed than usual, well my bright rosy cheeks are an Advent gift from Dulce Secrets (no group needed), their system layer Cherry Cute Blush. It goes well with the beautiful eyes from Inkheart. They are called Hades Eyes in Breeze, and come in system layers or mesh each in three sizes. For this one you will need to join their free group. Advent is why I finally went Premium, LOL, knew I'd need all these extra group slots for blogging :)

Not only am I giving you a closer look at the Inkheart eyes from the previous photo, I have another Advent gift to share too. The bottom half of this image, I am wearing Amacci mesh eyes in Stargazer, Blue on the left eye and Green on the right eye. These are also in system versions, but in order to show different colors I am wearing the mesh, and they even included a short hair that fades from black to platinum in male and female sizes. This gift is from the KittyCatS Advent Calendar, a wonderful tradition that will provide gifts from a large variety of designers throughout SL and usually culminates in a pet version (no food required) of their precious cats. Note I was wearing the blush from the previous photo in the top half but not the bottom here, quite a difference!

Yay, nails!! Ahem...okay I'll try to compose myself but I do love manicures and these seasonal ones are lovely. This is our Advent gift from Entice, and while it is Day 1 the name of the HUD itself is Christmas Nails Set 2. This HUD is so versatile, 3 designs in each color red and green, and a row for each Maitreya, Slink, Omega and Belleza. You will need to be a member of their free group, and pay $1L that is immediately reimbursed to claim this terrific gift.

I am wrapping up (no Christmas pun intended but if it works...) this post with another nail HUD, this time from Perfect Seduction. This is their PS! Two Tone Nails, and comes in Slink and Omega HUDs. No group needed, just a quick click.

I am still trying to find out about as many Advent calendars as possible, and a good resourse is this site that will be updated as they receive more information. Even if you aren't particularly in a holiday spirit just yet, think how cheerful you will feel visiting some stores and seeing some really impressive decorations in many of them, and receiving so many thoughtful gifts :) I hope you all have a great day, magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
