Happy New Year

-------------
Came across this image online today by - http://lifetunnels.com - and I couldn't agree more. The New Year is all about new adventures, goals, success, and all that jazz. No matter what it brings, I am grateful in seeing another year. Lucky 13 is what I will call it. So best wishes to everyone and stay safe in celebration. Cheers!

Pssst....Advent Calendar Event @ 22769

-------------
If you are enjoying the gifts as much as I am, then you need to be certain to grab the gifts under the tree in the next few days. I could spoil it for you and give you pictures but maybe telling you does the same thing, either way, you have to pick them up. Today, Day 15 is a cool Bauwerk Christmas Pillows w/ six animations. Day 16 is a silver and onyx snowflake necklace (unisex). I will picture it in the coming post because its a very nice piece. Day 17 thru Day 19 are items perfect for your home. I won't tell you exactly. Just have to take my word for it. Cheers!

Like A Kid Again

Recently I visited Scribbled.Hearts located on the Water Reserve sim and I knew I had to do a photo there. Granted I am wearing a tattoo and a bit of bling but hey, the choo choo train in the background makes up for it. Anyways to the post, today diamondz Beauty released the Gianni skin. As you know, I am a fan of their line because the darker tones are aces in my book. To add, the shape provided has become one of my favorites. You need to demo Gianni now! Now, another Winter Fair item designed by Fe Style. Kev has created a line of these long sleeved shirts in an assortment of colors. Also, the jeans are another Christmas gift by Rispetto Designs, the shoes are by Reila Skins & Fashion, hair by DURA and the cool necklace is a gift by Milady's. Cheers!

Gifts of Giving

-------------
December means Christmas and there is nothing more exciting about this holiday then the spirit of giving and family. Throughout this month, people will be preparing to surprise their loved ones and children with gifts but more importantly its the closeness and warmth of family and friends that makes the holiday what it is. Don't judge me mates, Christmas has that affect on me -- what can I say? That said, be sure to check out the Candy Cane Hunt 4 that ends December 24th! Best thing about this hunt, its designed to offer male and female and/or unisex gifts. Can't ask for more than that. Cheers!
