Advantageous Advent

Hiya everyone! Today I found so many terrific Advent calendar gifts that I am focusing primarily on sharing those in this post. Most do not require a group tag at all, but one needs a group tag that is free to join. In addition, I have some exciting makeup to show you from LIVIA at The Avenue event, which runs until the 22nd of December. This is a very busy month with so many things to see and do, and I'm having a wonderful time trying to share as much as possible.

Moonstar has a free Advent calendar that does not need a group tag, and today's gift is their *V* Blue Christmas Dress. It comes in fitmesh standard sizes along with Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The adorable seasonal pattern made me smile, and the collar, front zipper, and shapely seams are all fine touches.

Next we visit Applique` Chic, whose Advent calendar is a tree-shaped stack of boxes outside their front door, right where you land. The current date is set for sale for $0L, while previous days are available for $10L each which is handy in case you miss any. This is prize 12, called Knit Dress Snowflake. It is provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic FIne, with a fun diagonal pattern of zigzags and snowflakes on the full skirt. 

This fun outfit is Emerald Couture's EC Summer Sandy Pink Dress, one of three Advent gifts available today. It is from the calendar for all, no group needed, while the other two are a male and female board for group members (free to join). The dress comes in standard mesh sizes, and the matching shoes are a perfect fit for my Slink High feet. The word summer in the name of the dress did not deter me from sharing, as there are plenty of warm places to visit year round in SL, and you can always tuck this aside in your inventory for a later date.

If you are craving something a bit warmer, please head to Sweet E's where you can wear your free group tag and claim this Gift 12 Rolled Collar Sweater Dress. It comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, eBody, Maitreya, Ocacin, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic FIne, so a wide range of sizes for sure. The soft blue trim really brings out the colors in the design on the front, the sweet snowman surrounded by birds and greenery in front of a cozy looking cottage. 

LIVIA is preparing us for the sparkly, festive feeling of the upcoming holidays (I am leaning more towards New Year's celebrations because of the colors) with their exclusive offers at The Avenue. The beautiful Tiara Eyeshadow & Lipstick is just $99L per pack, and you can choose from Catwa, Lelutka, or Omega/Tattoo layers for those packs. There are 4 versions of the eye makeup, with various eyeliner styles and some amazing glitter, even stars make an appearance. The lipstick is a warm shimmery shade that can flatter so many skin tones, and the Omega applier works perfectly with my GA.EG head. I am also enjoying the Tiara Nails, which are $99L for a multi-HUD for Slink, Maitreya, Omega, and Vista, with 4 designs as seen in the inset and even 2 mani mixes for Maitreya. What could make this offer even better? The fatpack, which includes the makeup HUD of your choice with eyeshadow and lipstick, plus the nails HUD, for $189L for the duration of the event. Get there before the 22nd of December so you don't miss out on this valuable opportunity! The LIVIA mainstore is linked in my right sidebar as always, and the link in the credits is your limo directly to the event. I also managed to sneak another Advent gift into this photo, my eyes from *Inkheart*. They are day 12's gift under the tree, called Allie Eyes - Tea, and you will need the free group tag to claim them. All prior gifts are still available for free, and will be until the 3rd of January to make sure we all have plenty of time to pick them up. Their eyes include 4 sizes, in system layers, mesh, and appliers for Omega and Genesis. 

Whew, we have made it through another Monday and now we get to enjoy what will hopefully be a nice Tuesday for everyone. I was just excited that I got finished taking these photos right before rolling restarts kicked me out of my sim! It notified me just as I was about to log out, the timing was that close and it is a huge relief. Tomorrow's post will be a mixture again, most likely some Advent treats and you'll have to stay tuned to find out what else :) Magical magpie hugs to each of you!!
