Not So Risky Business

Not So Risky Business

Hello there Fabulouses!  I have been busy in the yard this weekend, and I just couldn’t wait to put on something cozy and fall into a comfy chair.  I had to giggle to myself a little after the photo was finished because I noticed it looked a lot like a worn out, female version of “Tom Cruise in Risky Business”, thus the title.  Today I am featuring EIGHT more FaMESHed group gifts as well as a Midnight Mania Board prize I scored at Aleutia.

The Look

My look today was put together with the Felicity Patterns Flannel Shirt that I managed to win FREE in a midnight mania board at Aleutia.  At Aleutia, you’ll find an open MM board and a group MM board (20L to join) as well as five group lucky chairs.  I won this in the open midnight mania board, but it is available in the other board and chairs at times as well too.  If you don’t win it one way, you’ll win it another!

The oversized shirt was calling for a pair of little white socks and I remembered that I had picked up the FREE group gift at FaMESHed by Eudora 3D and they were Shortsocks fitted for Maitreya.  These socks come with a texture change HUD too!

My hairstyle is also FREE today, and can be found as one of three group gifts at FaMESHed by Elikatira.  This one is called Lauren and it comes with an essentials pack HUD which contains several different shades  in a variety pack to choose from.  Astrid showed you one of the others in her post [HERE].

The Furnishings

Aside from the chair and table, all of the decor pieces in my photo are FREE group gifts from the Anniversary round of FaMESHed!

Not Goodbye, but Thank You

Butterflies

Not Goodbye, but Thank You…

I looked long and hard for the right quote to begin this post and the only one I could find that was fitting was this:

“This is not goodbye, my darling, this is a thank you.”

To all of you Fabulous readers, to my FabFree team… to those who gave me hunt tips… and to my hunting partner-in-crime Damian, “Thank you” for what would have been three glorious years of blogging coming up this next month.

I Do have to say Farewell for now, however, and so this will be a parting post. If only for a while. Real life has intruded in the form of some health issues and I have to take some time to focus on myself. I will still take some pictures and keep up my Flickr as time allows with my partner-in-crime and hunting buddy that you all have read about now and then and who I am finally giving a name to… my beloved Damian.

And now… the gifts:

This beautiful green dress is one of many free gifts at the anniversary round of We  ❤ RP right now. Don’t worry if you can’t get in right away, as it’s going on all month. You’ll find this dress at the Entice booth. “Be My Wench” comes in sizes to fit TMP, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, and a Fitmesh.  There is also an alpha included.

Zoom in…

If you zoom in on my hands in the picture you’ll notice my nails… errr claws. I couldn’t resist these Maitreya exclusive claws in black for Maitreya Bento Hands. They are by Meva and move with your Bento animations. They are gorgeous! These are also free at We ❤ RP. Pick them up while you have the chance!

Jewelry anyone?

I am a lover of pretty baubles and my jewelry is free this month too. Just slap the subscriber at Graffitiwear and you’ll get this Sunstone set which includes the necklace, earrings and a ring. The entire set matches perfectly and goes well with the Be My Wench Dress.

And Fameshed!

Love showed you some great gifts from Fameshed in her post [here]. I had gone and checked out the booths and just like We ❤ RP, it is their anniversary round and there are glorious free gifts to be had. If you stop by the Elikatira booth, clicking the gift box with your free Fameshed group active will give you a gift box with three hairs inside! Each is a fatpack of essential colors. I’m showing off Maren in the picture above.

Last but not least…

… my swarm of butterflies (and the tiny little butterfly hair piece which is separate from the swarm) are also a free gift at Fameshed. Just pick them up from the Wasabi Pills vendor, unpack and wear! The hairpiece is perfect for a pretty addition to any hair and the swarm is perfect for photographs.

At last…

One last word… thank you to all of you for everything. I’ve enjoyed every picture, every kind word, every blog post, every reader tip and comment. You are all wonderful. Thank you for being part of my adventure with FabFree. I hope to see you all again when my real life allows!  ❤ Astrid ~

Lazy in Lingerie

Lazy in Lingerie

It’s a lazy day.  So lazy, in fact that I’m just in my skivvies lolling about on the couch.  Do you have those days?  Sometimes they’re the kind of day that calls for fancy lingerie and high heels – just to please yourself and nobody else!

Skimpy Skivvies

I found this lovely lingerie set from FurtaCor hiding in my notices.   If you join the FurtaCor group for 50L, and nip into the group notices, you will find the latest group gift hanging out there for you.  It comes in three different colours – red, blue and black, and comes with appliers for Maitreya and Belleza as well as an Omega applier.  I like the shiny look of the fabric!  Oh, and by the way it’s a bit revealing from the other side, if you catch my drift!

Flowery Feet

Scandalize has come out with a gift for an upcoming event called Vanity.  If you join the group HERE for free, and check in the notices you will get these chunky platform heels in the cheery flowery design you see in the photo.  I love them for spring and summer – they really make an outfit!  They come sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.

Enjoy your lazy day!

OH. Bubbles!

FabFree: Oh! Bubbles!
Hello there Fabulous Readers!  It’s a hot one out there today so I took a trip to the beach for a little sun and fun.  Don’t worry, I didn’t forget my hat…  or the bubbles! FYI:  These animated bubbles by ChicChica that are available for sale at the current round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room are so much fun.

It was worth the wait!

TRUTH was a little late in sending out their April group gift, but let me tell you, it is worth the wait!  Jacica is a playful summer hairstyle that includes a whole fatpack of colours, an accessory HUD to change the colours of the hair bands and the hat as well as choose from plenty of different hat graphics.  The hair stylist HUD is also included and it allows you to wear the double buns or side pony tails and there are bang and wisp options too!  The Truth group is 350L to join, but there are amazing monthly group gifts.  I’d have purchased this one alone for that price!
TRUTH Jacica

Bikini Babe

I thought this Bikini Babe Set from 1Hundred was so cute with the bows at the hips and the vibrant summer hues.  Best part about this halter bikini top that ties in the front?  No tan lines on the back! Anyways, this suit comes in plenty of size options as listed below and is available at The Sunny Side Up Wash Event for… you guessed it – 10L (in several different colours!)

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

Catcher of Dreams

Battlefairy

Hey there Fabulouses!  You should see the gorgeous dresses and wrap wedge sandals that you can pick up for just 10L on the Battle Fairy display at The Wash’s Sunny Side Up Event.

Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee – (just a different kind)

There are five prints of these sexy little Sandra Dee Dresses to choose from in summery boho style prints such as feathers, patchwork prints or ombre.  The Sandra Dee Shoes are also available in five co-ordinating colours to match perfectly with the dresses available.  All 10 of these items are just 10L each.  At this price, you might as well grab all ten of them because for 100L (10 X 10L)  you’ll be decked out for five days of summer.

Dress Sizes Included & Shoe Compatibility:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

A Little Addition…

The white bolero tattoo is available as a free group gift at Carol G. along with several other gifts – with a group join of 130L.  I think these bolero style tattoos are an excellent alternative to a sweater and a necklace and look amazing with little sleeveless dresses such as this one!

Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Omega
  • TMP

Let Me Take A Selfie

Let Me Take A Selfie

One of my life mottos is “You can never have too many t-shirts”.  I own a vast amount of shirts in RL, that take up a lot of space.  I’ve got it all:  Band T-shirts (hey Led Zeppelin), tv shows (Jem and the Holograms, yaaaas), and even really weird ones that don’t necessarily mean anything, but amuse me (“Welcome to the Faraway Kingdom” – does that have a meaning I’m unaware of?).   Anyway, the moral of the story is that my piles of shirts carry over to SL, but I don’t need to fold them or find space for them!  Yay!

Get Shirty With Me

I found a collection of cropped t-shirts at Tooty Fruity that are completely free!  There are a massive amount of black tops in this gift, each with a different word on them.  I went with one of the less rude options (Keepin’ it PG-13 y’all!) but there are piles of amusing tops you can choose from.  They come with an Omega applier as well as System layers.  I also found this fun headband while at Tooty Fruity, and I thought it just added to my randomness smashingly.  Grab both for free at the store, no group join required.  Pssst – there are other free gifts there waiting to be discovered!

Do you have a fave t-shirt?  A collection?

I’d love to hear about them!

Under An April Sky

Under An April Sky

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in with a quick Sunday evening post about a free unisex necklace that you can pick up as a group gift at Amias.  This choker features three beads suspended on a dark gray cord, which softly reflect sunlight with a subtle gleam.  The simple design of this accessory provides just the right touch to finish off an outfit.  Male and female versions are tucked inside the package, so ladies, this one’s for you, too!  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate the Amias group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.  There are also two other group gifts on the wall, but these are just for the gals.

I’m off to scour the grid for more fashion finds for men.  Until next time, happy shopping!
