FATEwear 2015 Holiday Giveaway! 2015 Holiday Giveaway!

Before I get into the details of the giveaway I’m having this year, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you. Yesterday I found out that I won two AVI Choice Fashion Awards: Favorite Fashion Blogger and Favorite Fashion Blog. It truly means a lot to be appreciated for something you love to do. Blogging is not only just a hobby of mine, but it has slowly become a passion. I enjoy sharing a bit of my Second (and sometimes real) life here with you all and I am so thankful for all of your support and encouragement. So thank you for voting and thinking of me and also a big thank you to the AVI Choice team for putting it all together!

I was just told today that I am also nominated for a ‘Best of YouTube’ for Second Life Brasil Awards.  I’m not sure why I’m nominated in that category though as I don’t have many videos on my youtube channel, perhaps it’s because I’ve started streaming Second Life on youtube? Anyways, I really think Drax is the one that deserves this award as he has brought so much positive attention to SL through his World Makers youtube series. So if you get a moment, please vote for Draxtor Despres!

I wanted to show my appreciation and have a giveaway on my blog for this holiday season as a thank you to all of you for the continuous support. I started doing this annual holiday giveaway in 2013 when I gave away 5 gift cards to 5 of my favorite stores. In 2014 I gave away a L$5000 gift card to Maitreya.

This year I have decided to give away two gift cards, one for Catwa worth L$4000 and the second a photography gift card for a single portrait by me worth L$1500. One lucky winner will get this folder dropped on them:

To use these gift cards:
> For the Strawberry Singh Photography card, you must rez it and open the contents. You will then receive a folder with a notecard inside named “Book with Berry” that will contain full instructions on how to redeem your card.
> For the Catwa gift card, you must wear it, go to the Catwa mainstore and click on the gift cards redeemer to earn store credits. 2015 Holiday Giveaway!

The reason I chose Catwa this year is because they have mesh heads for both men and women now, as you can see from the picture above, and so far all of their mesh heads are L$3599 each. Therefore the L$4000 gift card should cover the full cost of a mesh head and perhaps any hair you would like to purchase along with it. Yes Catwa also carries some gorgeous hair! I have also heard that Catwa will be releasing even more mesh heads in the coming year, so even if there is nothing there right now that interests you, I’m sure you will be able to use your gift card in the near future.

Please note that this giveaway is not affiliated with or sponsored by Catwa in any way. I have purchased the gift card with my own money as a thank you gift for all the love and support you guys give me.

I have been on a mesh head blogging binge this year and I’ve really been enjoying it. I figured it would be a great opportunity to ask you guys some questions about mesh heads and what your feelings are about them, especially since this is such a heated topic!

Giveaway Instructions

Leave a comment in this post by answering the following questions:

  1. What is your full Second Life name?
  2. Do you own a mesh head?
  3. How do you feel about mesh heads? Do you feel they make everyone look like a clone or do you enjoy dressing up your avatar with them?

Aside from the questions, (and this is not a mandatory part of entering the giveaway) I would appreciate it if you shared this post on at least one of your social networks.

The giveaway will end on December 18th at 8am SLT, so you have a little under two weeks to leave a comment and enter. As I have done in previous years, on December 18th at 8am SLT I will input all your names into the Randomizer and let the website choose the winner. I will announce the winner’s name in the comments after that time and then drop the giveaway folder on them.

I decided to go with December 18th because it is a week before Christmas and in case you didn’t want to use the gift cards for yourself, you are free to gift them to a loved one for the holiday season. Or you can just treat yourself! :P Photography Gift Cards and Advertising Sale

Since it is the holiday season, I thought this would be a great time to mention that I have my Photography Gift Cards up for sale in my marketplace store, in case you are looking for a gift for your loved ones:
Strawberry Singh Photography - L$1500 Gift Card for Single Portraits Strawberry Singh Photography - L$2000 Gift Card for Couples Portraits
> (SS) Strawberry Singh Photography – L$1,500 Gift Card (single portrait)
> (SS) Strawberry Singh Photography – L$2,000 Gift Card (couples/group portrait)

Also just a quick reminder that my current advertising sale ends on December 15th, 2015. Awards

I’ve saved all of the awards and trophies I’ve received so far and I thought it would be nice to take an image of a few of them. It really brought back a lot of memories seeing them again. The lovely Mr. Jefferson also sent me a glass cabinet to display all of them in so I set them up in my house inworld. Thank you again for visiting my blog and voting for me, I really appreciate it!

I can’t believe this year is almost over, it’s gone by so fast. Thank you for all the love in 2015. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with your real and Second Life families. Happy Holidays! ♥

Mrs. Robinson

Botgirl called me Mrs. Robinson earlier today and that sort of inspired this post, even though I am completely innocent and have even sworn off men for the rest of my life (or until I meet a really hot guy). But yeah, I did have fun dressing Manberry up like a schoolboy and photoshopping a […] Continue reading →

New Year Meme

2013 is over and we are now almost a week into 2014. I figured it was the perfect time to start up my Monday memes again. It was nice to take a break and relax a bit in the month of December, but I did miss reading all your posts. My favorite memes are actually […] Continue reading →

Dear Santa

Dear Santa, I’ve never actually written to you before since my family has never celebrated Christmas, but now that I’m an adult, I figured I should be allowed to make my own decisions? Right? Well, I do sometimes. I understand you’re the man who knows how to get me things. But of course, like any […] Continue reading →

Falling in Love

Have you ever seen those lovey dovey couples that dress the same? I always kind of giggled at them until recently it happened to me and my boyfriend. It was completely accidental but we ended up wearing similar colors and were basically walking around all day like that, it was kind of hilarious. I thought […] Continue reading →

ManBerry Sightings

ManBerry’s been out and about touring the whole grid recently. He stopped off at a few stores and then checked out a few sims and even posed for some pictures. He’s becoming quite the social butterfly. I figured I should put a stop to it and suggested that he partner me and he firmly said […] Continue reading →
