Hiya everyone! Happy Friday to all of you, and I hope you are all ready to hop around the grid and pick up some wonderful Advent calendar gifts today. I found a few more calendars active today, which made me even more excited for this post :) I am focusing purely on Advent goodies today, so all of these are quite time-sensitive.
This first beauty is our Advent gift from Lemonade Couture, called Tulip Dress and labeled as Day 1 so I am not sure when the store owner will be changing this out. The lovely dress is included in many fitmesh sizes: standard (XS - L), Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP. The style is a combination of elegant and flirty, with the full skirt and fun bow.
Entice has this After Midnight Top in Gold as their Advent gift for today, just sport your group tag (free to join) and click the #2 on the advent board, pay the $1L and it will be automatically reimbursed. This comfy looking blouse comes in standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, and TMP sizes to fit just about all of us. Every great top deserves an equally great bottom, and the jeans here are a terrific Advent gift from +Facepalm+ for day two. Cleverly named Billie Jeans which immediately gave me a Michael Jackson earworm, these feature a HUD with 8 texture options for any mood...4 denim colors each in a new look and a distressed style. The black denim has some metallic gold peeking through so I thought it would work nicely with the gold blouse. These jeans are included in standard, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique sizing.
Sparrow by Design is offering a beautiful skirt set called Winter Fantasy as their Advent gift for today, with the jacket and skirt each included in standard mesh sizes. Despite the name, I can easily envision wearing this year-round. There are some furnishings to be found in these Advent calendars too, such as this adorable fireplace from Ollies Follies as their gift for the day. This is their Festive Fireplace, Snowflake, Beach edition, so that is probably driftwood smoldering on the grate in there. The runner across the top has some green snowflakes on it, and those Christmas lights with the classic big bulbs are a heartwarming touch.
For an alluring prize or two, please head to Emerald Couture who have 2 different Advent calendars for us to enjoy. One was labeled for group members, but I clicked it and it did distribute the gift to me. This stunner is their EC Glitz Sky, with Slink shoes in rigged or unrigged so you can edit and adjust the unrigged pair if need be. The dress with its peekaboo styling comes in a wide array of sizes: standard, Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. Whew! In this photo you can also see a closer look at my pretty peepers, the Inkheart advent calendar gift for today which is their April Eyes in Sand. You will need a group tag but it is free to join, and all gifts will be available until January 3rd so if you get too busy to login everyday close to the holidays, no worries :)
You probably noticed my crimson tips and toes, well they are our fantastic Advent gift from Hello Dave, the HUD is simply named December 2nd and offers 5 designs for Slink and Omega. Each design is that eye-catching red with a different shade as a diagonal slash at the cuticle, full of shimmer and style. The free group tag is needed to claim these gifts, and I assure you it is well worth the group slot. Random side note, I am strongly considering doing my RL nails like this for Christmas! I am inspired :)
I am so sleep-deprived right now, and the next 30 hours or so holds a dental appointment to have at least 2 cavities filled, a dinner at my parents' just a few hours later so my mom was considerate enough to plan on soft foods (she rocks!) and I desperately hope some rest after that. Then I have a special event to attend at the local artisan market, a Christkindl German Market which is a first for us but probably the idea of the German baker/chef who brought us Oktoberfest for 2 years. It is so exciting, yet I am anxious about getting some sleep beforehand. Ohhh and there's another special event Saturday afternoon, a pop up holiday market that features French foods. Once I get through the dental visit, everything else should be amazingly fun, I just need to stay awake for it all ;)
I hope you all have a wonderful day, magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
