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.

Sadly, October and all of the fun Halloween events and hunts are almost over. For this blog, Peggy and I went out ghost hunting, which turned out to be a very bad idea and I had to run!!

Peggy is wearing a free shirt from Patty C.K. Fashion at the Point Event. The jeans are from MH Unique and free if you join the I Love Maitreya group. Both come in the sizes:

  • Maitreya

She is also wearing lovely free hair from NYNE hair. It is a group gift and it comes with a color hud with several colors.

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
  • NX-David

For those who will celebrate Halloween today, be safe when you go out trick or treating. Don’t be like me and Peggy!

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

Cleaning to do

Cleaning to do

Today I was reminded that I still have a lot of chores to do and a lot to clean to keep my home nice and tidy. It’s just so easy to say “I’ll do it tomorrow.” at times…

I found a few more gifts so I dressed my avie up to at least pretend I did some cleaning today. I doubt it will count, but it was kind of fun.

The Boo! Bunny Hunt 7 is a pretty fun hunt to do and the hunt items will only cost you a 1L a piece. I couldn’t help to pick up this sexy maid outfit from Darling Haute Couture to go with my free pose and duster that I found for the BOO! at Blacklace hunt.

The bookcase in the background is a gift from PPK and you can pick it up for free at the Redeux event. All you have to do is join the free group and then it’s all yours.

Celebrating Fall

Celebrating fall

Kustom9 is celebrating their birthday and the creators there have a nice surprise for you at pretty much every booth. For only 9L you can pick up exclusive items, like the hair and sweater my avatar is showing in the picture.

Redeux also has gifts out and there are a LOT of them again. For now I am only showing this nail polish from CAZIMI that comes with a hud that allows you to pick several colors, but I discovered some more interesting stuff that I am planning to show.

The fun pose is from the Pose Fair and it comes with all of the props in the picture, such as the fence, the leaves and the pumpkins and it feels like a little celebration of the fall. If you enjoy taking pictures, I highly suggest to visit the event. I believe I counted 57 gifts and most of them are of course poses.

Plenty of pumpkins

Plenty of Pumpkins

Since Halloween is nearing, I will have to purchase one or two pumpkins soon to make into lanterns. I was reminded of this because I found another free hunt this morning and in order to get the prizes, you have to hunt down the pumpkins that are hidden. There are 34 of them, some are in plain view, but others found better hiding spots somehow.

It’s called the BOO! at Blacklace hunt and there are 34 prizes to collect from several stores. There are a lot of fun items to gather, like this Bewitched Gown my avatar is wearing from ExxentriciXi. It comes in the sizes Belleza, Fitmesh XS-XL and Maitreya.

Hair is a new group gift from No.Match. The hat is optional and comes in red, black and white and the hair itself comes with a fatpack hud, so all colors are included.

October… and Fall…ing… Behind.

October... and Fall... ing behind.

Yeah yeah… I’m a slacker.

Well not exactly. Life is complicated. Isn’t it always? Things change and evolve like the seasons, and we do our best to keep up. Sometimes that means falling behind… oh wait… it’s finally fall. Ah yes… bonfires… and Halloween quickly approaching!

Damian and Peggy have been amazing and have kept up the blog – give them a huge high five for me, they totally deserve it! This is more their baby now than mine ❤ and probably will be for a long time to come. Life has a way of dealing out cards that we don’t always want. It’s not our job to wish for different cards… what we do is play the hell out of the hand we are dealt!

But! I had enough energy to take a picture… and make a post today… and I like this hot hot sexy black top that Graffitiwear is giving FREE for October as their subscriber gift. If you are not already a subscriber, go slap the subscriber and get it. If you are… I am sure it is already in your inventory. Check your objects folder!

It comes in a ton of mesh body sizes… sure to please any discerning SLer!

Love and light to you all… and happy fall!

~ Astrid.
