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.

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

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!

Today is grocery day, because we have to eat. It’s all about planning and making a list, because without that I would forget half of what I needed to get. It’s also about not going in hungry, that will only lead you to buy more than you need, but maybe that is just me… So today I have a plan and I will stick to it!
Sadly we don’t have many farmer’s markets over here with all that fresh produce, but I will be trying to get healthy food, fruits and vegetables. It’s time to turn things around and get healthier!
Thankfully in SL we do not have to worry about being healthy or gaining too much weight, the clothes will just adjust to your shape!! So this dress by Byrne fitted my avie perfectly as always! It is a new subscriber gift for this month. Hit the subscriber, subscribe and click again to have this gift delivered to you for free! It comes in the sizes:

“Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy.
There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it.”

I once visited Chicago. It was a pretty special trip. Sort of those once in a lifetime things. I packed carefully… fancy dresses, high heels, and an expensive pair of sunglasses. I only packed one pair of blue jeans for that trip because I knew I wouldn’t be needing comfortable clothes. I was going on a trip I knew I would never forget… a trip that was all about glamour and a world outside my own.
I remember finding out that if you slip the host extra money, you don’t have to have reservations… even if the restaurant claims that you do. I remember learning that if you have a special key in the right hotel… there are secret upper floors that take you to the penthouse. And that they hold parties up there sometimes for VIPs. I remember the food… little shrimps in martini glasses, olives settled upon squares of cheeses I didn’t know the names of, caviar and patte with fancy crackers, fine wines and champagne.
I wore a black dress of course, with the back cut out. And I was probably the only woman there wearing black lipstick. I was easily the youngest woman there among the crowd. It was a host of executives and their dates, and I stood out with my long hair in curls piled up on my head and my tattoos and my fancy sunglasses. I’ll never forget the couple who came up to me and my date and began chatting as if we were all old friends and asked me what I did. And my date told her I was a writer. It was mostly true.
These free gifts on Astrid remind me of that glamorous night… one I’ll never forget. Glittering and golden and filled with dreams. A night to be savored like the wine that I sipped from a crystal glass with my date that night.

When I learned that this month is LGBT Pride Month, I had to get something to show my support. I think it is very important that we can all be who we are and that we respect one another. I found these sweat pants from Troglodyte and I thought they were perfect! I added my free shoes from [VALE KOER] and I think I am now ready to go to any parade and celebration in the neighborhood!
The background I used is a subscriber gift from .:Joplino:.. I subscribed to them and to my surprise they send you a new background every month! It’s a lot of fun if you like taking pictures like I do.

Mmmmm nothing quite like latex. And Byrne knows how to do it. This month’s FREE subscriber gift had me scrabbling to put on the liquid-like latex dress and find a sexy place to explore.
I paired the dress with the R.icielli 1L MarketPlace promo boots that you can still pick up if you hurry (they come in pink and navy and fit Maitreya, slink, and Belleza feet) and I was ready to go.
I’ve been checking out some old haunts lately and meeting up with old friends for chit chats. It’s been long overdue. I ended up in Niramyth where I was helping a male friend pick out a new skin for himself and discovered that the back drop was perfect for snapping a picture of my new outfit!
While you’re at it, be sure to stop by the Kinky Event. YUM. Though it’s not for the faint of heart. I picked up a risky outfit as well as the beautiful Fabia hair I’m sporting in the picture above.
