Redelivery!

Todays !g0 Advent gift is this wrap over cardie.

Won’t bore you with the details because I want to log back in and trawl my way through the 25Ld tues list because I suspect it’s going to be a good un.  If you want the list then its the “25 Tuesdays Connection” group you have to join and each Tue a full list is put out and I will be starting it in 1, 2…now.

Special mention to the money-saving “Redelivery option”  The amazing car just behind me comes from a shop called “anhelo” and KNEW I had it but could I find it, nope no way,  no matter what I typed into my invent I could not find this car and I just wanted it as the final decoration for my home so finally I TPed over to the anhelo shop to rebuy it but right above the buy it board is the wonderful “Redelivery Board”..woo hoo not only saved me money but this car completes my Christmas deccies.

It’s Mahoosive! (Complete Advent Calendar List).

I will admit that I never really paid much attention to the Teleporthub group before because I never really noticed them but once I’d joined the group a while ago now it’s been one of my “go to” groups for not just the heads up for GG’s but for their own GG’s which a lot of shops have running at the same time.  So this turned into a great group to be a member of and all it costs is just 10Lds.

So I checked my notices from Teleporthub first thing this morning and Holy Moley someone has been working so hard they deserve an extra big and expensive pressie off Santa because on their blog is a comprehensive list of so many if not ALL of the shops with Advent calendars.  You don’t just get a list you get the LMs and details of if you have to join the shop group or not and how much etc.

I literally just chose one at random, “Home Wimsey Sim” which I do believe has a selection of gifts in 1 area but from 10 different shops and although most seem to be decor items since there are blue boxes for men it looks like there are his “n” her fashions.  This tree which is really big is today’s giftie and I do believe that the old ones are kept open for a couple of days before they’re packed away.

So not just a big fat wet sloppy kiss to the shops who are giving so generously but also Teleporthub because quite frankly I would have missed almost all of these events.

UPDATE.  I’m like a pig in a massive mud puddle, just having fun TPing here, there and everywhere.  I just wanted to suggest that you open your Mini Map as some of the places have their Advent Calendars away from the landing spot.  So in those cases often you just have to follow the beam or see where all the other AV’s are standing.

Check out this heap! (!gO Advent Calendar).

How can you not find 50Lds to join the !gO group when you see all of these pressies just waiting to be grabbed.

Only one a day is opened and you can just about to see the number 1, bottom left-hand corner but sadly for me once the day is over the goodie is packed up and you cannot get it.  I say sadly because it means tomorrow I won’t be able to get my giftie as I’m heading off to a massive Christmas market but I do get to stay overnight in a hotel with a pool so I’m packing snowboots and my bathing cossie!

Todays is a simple knit dress, with all standard mesh bod fits, but I think you can see from the texturing that this as all of the previous gifts is some of the best texturing.  Since it’s started today that means there are 24 super gifts in total.  Going by last years gifts a lot of these are very colour and style coordinated, ie leggings in one box and the next day a jumper which matches the leggings or can be worn with other items in your invent.  I think I still have everything I got from last years event as it’s just too damned good to bin.

I TPed in and snagged and TPed straight but I should have lingered more because it was so quiet and I should have checked for the Group Gift and I might just do an update when I go back in-world to LM grab.  So again for a measly 50Ld investment, there is the GG and 24 stunning gifts.

Update.  Not surprisingly !gO was a lot busier when I went back to LM grab.  The Group gift is not familiar to me and well worth it.  The LM takes you outside the !gO shop just walk straight ahead and the gifts are just inside the main door to your left and the Group gift is on the wall behind the desk not far from the gifts.

The Dream.(Freebie & a Mina).

Just a fun summery piccie here because in RL I’m freezing my T*Ts off.

First, the freebie and again reg readers will know by now if it’s sporty clothing I snag it.  I don’t know how many sets of shorts n tops I have but I don’t care so there.  This freebie and there was at least 2 other, this is the one I preferred, are to be found at the Bliss shop.  The Bliss group is VIP but still free and so are the other 2 groups you have to join to get the other  2 free outfits.  Going by memory lots of sizes and with the 2 outfits, I opened both came with Huds and in this case I decided I rather liked the shorts not matching the top but you can choose your own preference.

It was the hair that got me back in-world because as soon as I saw a picture of it I just had to have it even though my SLing time was up.

This hair is extremely reminiscent of a very recent hair but Mina has given it that windswept look to it.  As someone who is trying to get a bit of movement or life into her pictures I love clothes and hair which have that extra bit of folding or suggestion of movement to them but even though this hair has all that it’s still totally wearable as just normal mooching around in SL hair.

The hair comes from the Shiny Shabby event and I have to be honest it’s not the best place for freebies but then again it’s been so long since I was last there you never know and since it’s on till the 15th it should have calmed down so I might just amble on over there.

JOIN THIS!

OK if you have 50Lds you must join the !g0 Group NOW before the place becomes a heaving cesspit of grasping, greedy AV’s and Moi tomorrow.

Gocha Merlin, the owner of !gO not only has a damned fine and unique clothing range, it’s where I often chose to spend my Lindens, the group gifts are monthly and there is often also a new outfit with a colour which has been reduced for just the group members it along with Sn@tch are the 2 groups I have been a member of for an SL lifetime.  What Gocha Merlin also has is one of the BEST advent calenders going in SL and because this is a clothes shop it means CLOTHES in the unique !gO style.  Because as with most calendars only 1 box a day is opened but sadly for those who can’t get in-world once the day is over you can’t get it anymore.  So you really need to try to pop over every day to make sure you don’t miss out.

PS. Now I can’t remember if it’s now gone from a 24 day Calendar to a 12 day one but it does no harm to join now, go grab the GG and get yourself ready for the rampaging horde.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I have no idea of where the phrase “easy pease lemon squeezy” comes from but I’m pretty sure it’s something we used to say as kids and it basically means something is easy.

So before I logged off last night the notice came through from Boudoir that their Christmas Group Gift is out and ALL of SL turned up to grab it fortunately I am the Queen of Camming so I bypassed the crown and cammed inside past the crowd and grabbed.

Boudoir

Bright bold and sexy.  The Poinsettia and the bow are add ons and although I’m not wearing the shrug in the next picture there is no way I wouldn’t wear this amazing bow which makes the whole outfit stunning.

Boudoir1

Even though I usually indulge in some editing when something is a freebie I just used my Nams setting because these colours are beautiful.  I’m so sorry I wish I could tell you about the rose encrusted hair because it has such a packed colour option but the shop it came from is now gone.

Time limitations means I can’t tell you much about Boudoir but this is a shop you need to visit when you have some time to spare as it’s just packed with amazing and original designs.

Oops I’ve just noticed that in the second picture the belt has buried itself into me a little bit but that happens sometimes with ridged items. You do have to join the group but that’s FREE.

And then as soon as I came inworld I got a notice from Trompe Loeil and OMG check em out.

Freeeee Treeee’s.  Ok you only get 2 but since they’re copy I went a bit crazy.  A sparkling tree in a sack you get 2 coloured sacks, shown.  The little winter scene you can see is something I completely forgot about it’s Trompe Loeil’s Christmas Advent Calendar.  The Calender itself is free and I believe it’s only 4 prims, 7 for the tree’s.  However to get the daily items for you advent calender you have to buy a key from a Gacha then rezz the key next to the Advent Calendar in your home and a little door opens are you are sent a lovely goodie.  Having had last years Trompe Loeil calender I know that the items are usually stunning and I will be going back straight away not only to get the LM but also start grabbing the Advent items.

This is my gratuitous arty shot although again all of these pictures taken in my Nams setting.

Sadly even I will have to remove some of the tree’s I have rezzed, I don’t think 7prims is an unreasonable count for something so beautiful and it looks just as gorgeous on its own or a couple rezzed at your front door will look outstanding.

PS you do have to pay a single Linden for the tree but it is refunded straight away.

UPDATE looks like I’ll have to pop over to the Arcade Event because thats where the key Gacha is to be found.  I reccomend you read the note that comes with the free Calender to make sure you don’t waste your key but remember even if you don’t want any of the gifts the calender on it’s own is a beautiful decor item.
