OK I had a later than usual start today, so I do apologize for those of you who are relying on these daily blogposts to hit the ground running!
First up is today’s gift from Virtue, this eye-catching pink and white striped asymmetrical Vivien dress (the Virtue group is free to join):
Today’s skin gift from Wow Skins is this Kiara Bakes on Mesh skin, in the sandy skin tone. It is intended for Genus heads, but it also looks good on the recent group gift of the Chelsea head from LOGO (the Wow group costs L$199 to join):
Today’s skin tone for the Hope skin from 7 Deadly S[k]ins is taupe, which as you can see is quite attractive! The 7 Deadly S[k]ins group costs L$1,000 to join during the month of December, and you can purchase the previous days’ Advent calendar gifts from the store for only L$25 each
The present from Essenz are these light pink Toledo high-heeled sandals, which come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Meshbody Legacy feet. (The Essenz group costs L$350 to join, or if you just want to get this single pair of shoes, non group members can purchase them for only L$50. By the way, I have noticed that many of Essenz’s Advent calendar gifts this year do not come in sizes to fit Slink mesh feet.)
By the way, here’s a pro tip for you. Did you know that some Advent and 12 Days of Christmas calendars allow you to visit on the final day, and pick up all the free gifts at one time? This year, I noticed that the calendars at Altamura, Ari-Pari, Baby Monkey, and JUMO all fall into this category. So save yourself the time and hassle, and just pay one visit on December 24th or 25th, and vacuum up all the fabulous freebies at once! Here are the Dec. 12th and 13th gifts from JUMO, the vividly-patterned Vicky gown and Verena shoes:
Finally, I have a couple of freebies that are not Advent calendar gifts, but rather than make a separate blogpost, I thought I’d toss them into this one. Firestorm is giving away a free fatpack of the unisex Jamie hairstyle by Firelight Hair at this SLURL, but I don’t know for how long, so you might want to pop down there today. This lovely short hairstyle reminds me of nothing so much as Julie Andrew’s hair in the 1965 movie The Sound of Music!
But I saved the best gift for last! Teleport to the BUENO store, join their group for free, and pick up this pink Barbie 4×4! (I’d hurry down for this one too, before the Mattel legal department intervenes for copyright infringement!).
Simply rezz the 4×4, get in, and you’re all set for a road trip!
The included animations are great—you even look behind you when you hit reverse! Thanks to the Pure Eggs & Spam blog for the heads up.
