Christmas in NY

Christmas in NY

Not only did I find this really pretty sim called A New York Christmas, but I also found the biggest event with gifts I have ever seen.

The Shop & Hop event is a holiday shopping event with 100 merchants spread over over 5 full regions!! Best yet, all of the merchants have a gift out that is waiting for you to pick up for free, so be sure to visit Aurelian, Gilded, Golden, Halycon, and Tinseled before January 17th 🙂

It was a hard to pick out what to show you today since there is a LOT to choose from, but I ended up with hair from ELIKATIRA, which comes with a hud with 20 colors to pick from and this outfit from Evani, a really nice sweater and a pair of jeans in the sizes:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The rest of the shown gifts you will find below! 😀

Crazy times

Trying to keep up

I can’t say that Christmas is really my thing. The grocery store become like a battleground when people are trying to get their last minute items for their luxurious Christmas dinners. It’s a whole bunch of crazy but even though I prefer to just calmly have some pizza by candlelight in a quiet room, I do my best to blend in and pretend to enjoy it…

A nice thing about Christmas are all the presents that given away in SL. What was even more special was that the Men Cave event has a very creative looking Christmas tree with gifts underneath it for the guys. That’s how I found myself this fun Christmas sweater by FashionNatic.

Even though the sweater makes me blend in more with the Christmas crowd, I was thankful to find a free mustache with goatee which allowed me to get some heavy metal looks and some glasses to make me look smarter than I actually am.

Snow

Snow

I’m wondering if we will get snow here this winter. Thankfully there are some really beautiful sims on SL to visit in case I will miss out on it again. And the upside is that I don’t have to wear a warm coat and I can wear shirts that have holes in them.

The hair is a free group gift from Barber Yumyum. I know that it is probably supposed to be female hair, but I do like longer hair as well and I thought it was not that bad looking at all. It only comes in one color (blond), but since you can edit the hair, you can tint it to however you like it, which is what I did for the picture.

The shirt from Sweet Intoxication actually available for free in two colors. The black version I’m showing now is easy to find, it’s with the group gifts. If you would like a red version you will have a little hunting to do. You will be looking for a blue scroll for the Naughty or Nice 4 hunt.

Red

Red

The Womenstuff hunt ends on the 30st of November, so this will be you last chance to pick up the free- and dollarbies.

My avatar is wearing closed version from a free red shirt from Pink Cream Pie, but there is a also an open version included for whoever feels a little more sexy during these cold months. It comes in the sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hg
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

The heels are also a Womenstuff hunt gift that can be found at DE. Boutique. That is… if you will be able to find the hidden hunt item that is in the form of a little T-shirt.

For those that will not be able to make it on time before that hunt ends, worry not, there will be PLENTY more hunts and events when December begins. One of the events that has already started, is the SaNaRae event and they also have some free gifts out.

I picked up this nice choker from Supernatural that I wanted to show. It comes with two huds to choose a color for the bow and tons of colors for the gem. I also found these really nice ripped leggings from Rekt that also includes a hud with 7 colors to pick from. It didn’t say what size it was, but I assume it’s just Maitreya since it fit my avatar’s body perfectly.

Happy thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

This is not something we celebrate over where I live, but I actually think we should. It’s kind of nice to take a moment and think about what we are thankful for at times.

I’m thankful for the amazing people I have met that became my friends. Friends who accepted me for who I am, with all of my flaws and weirdness. I’m thankful to have met Astrid and Tom. You both taught me a lot about myself, encouraged me to keep going and help me to become the best I can be. I still have a long way to go, but I’m getting there 🙂 I love you ♥ And I’m also thankful for my two cats 😀

Even though it’s not a tradition here, tonight I will be spending time with my family and appreciate that they have been there for me, even though we have our differences. I’m thankful for all they do and have done. To show that I even made them dinner that I will be bringing over. I impressed myself…

The freebies
The shirt and shoes are both free hunt gifts from the SLF&O hunt. The hunt will end at the 25th of November, so there is some time left get collect all of the gifts. There are a few stores who have male gifts and you can see in the hint list which ones. The sizes for the shirt:

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

I hope you will all have a good Thanksgiving 🙂

Enjoying the sun

Mangula subscriber gift

Even though it’s getting colder outside, at times when the sun comes through it’s nice to take a moment and feel the warmth of it on your skin. I’m pretty sure I should have worn a shirt underneath my jacket, but I didn’t think about it until now. No wonder I’ve been cold all day.

The outfit I’m wearing is a free subscriber gift from Mangula. You can get the gift by clicking the sign on the wall that says subscribe (this won’t take any group space and you can unsubscribe whenever you want to) and when you are done you can click the gifts on the ground. For this male gift you will get a jacket, pants and braga in various colors, sized for Gianni and Jake.

The necklace is a free gift from RealEvil for the SLF&O group. I’m uncertain if it has a meaning to it, but for some reason I really like it a lot. It comes in a male and a female version.

Winter is coming

Winter is coming

The leaves are falling and the forests are still very colorful, but soon the branches will be bare and the cold will come over the land. I think that every season has something special, something almost magical. Sure, the wind and the cold in the winter and are not always fun, but once the first snow begins to fall it always makes me smile. It’s always inviting to go out for a walk, then come home and to wrap yourself in a warm blanket with some hot tea and chocolate.

We do need to keep ourselves warm when outside and for some reason I like to prepare for winter in SL as well. Thankfully the Womenstuff hunt has plenty of warm gifts, in case you haven’t already warmed up by watching your avatar run around in order to find all the hunt items.

Firstly I would like to point out that the hair on my avatar is completely free. It is available at Sintiklia and there is no group you need to join. I like it a lot and it’s a bonus that it’s also a fatpack with all colors you can think of and with more of less volume. So very generous of the creator!

The really nice warm fur jacket is from Maci and the skinny jeans from AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS are also a really nice addition for your collection. That last one comes with a hud that gives you 27 options of textures, so that you can always find something to match. The sizes:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Fitmesh XS-XL (only for the skinny jeans)

Hangry for blood

Hangry for blood

New month, new gifts. I hope you all had a nice Halloween evening. I enjoyed looking at the pumpkin I carved and was happy that I was able to eat all of the candy by myself.

I’m a member of the Mina hair group and they were so kind to bring out an exclusive Halloween gift last minute. Since I also found this nice free dress that Mistique has hidden as a gift for the Womenstuff hunt (which started today), I decided to take a picture of a grumpy demon lady, who is not amused that she woke up with blood in her hair after hunting down innocents all night.

She’s probably very hangry too.

I’m also wearing some group gifts. The shirt is from Noche, which comes in two versions, normal and but also lifted. There are three fun designs to pick from and although the candy corn and the bats are maybe not something suited for the rest of the year, the eyes and quite eye catching! …
The free pants are from R2A and come in the sizes:

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza

Supreme Witch

Supreme Witch

I’ve been known to cast a spell or two in my lifetime… bewitch someone… enchant someone… you know. That sort of thing.

Gone Batty!

And while these terrific purple batty pants by Byrne are really kind of a Samhain sort of style, I think I could rock them all year long. I found these in my inventory this month, the Free October subscriber gift from Byrne, and was delighted to open the box and try them on. You’ll get the purple pair I’m showing off, as well as a pair in pink. You’ll get appliers for both Omega and Maitreya.

Fa-mous-meshed!

I noticed that the new round of Fameshed had started (actually Damian kindly took me there for a visit after one of my many doctor visits to cheer me up). And though I couldn’t figure out where the gifts were, Damian, as always, knew where to look! Snap! Free stuff. You just need the Fameshed group (Free to join) and gifties are yours. I’m sporting the pretty gift from Maxi Gassamer – the Good Girl Bad Girl Choker, which includes a texture change hud for 6 lace colors:

  • sky blue
  • black
  • pink
  • white
  • royal blue
  • red

Supreme Witch!

Well, it’s not a freebie, but every witch needs a good shirt, and I’m willing to admit that I will be wearing this fantastic shirt that let’s everyone know that I AM THE “Supreme Witch.” I picked it up at the Suicide Dolls Event for 200L$. Quick… hurry over. It’s a fantastic event.

❤ Love you all! ~ Astrid
