Queen Bee

Queen Bee
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Sunday! Pru is serving some serious face on this Sunday-funday, and with good reason. I have two group gifts from Swallow to tell you about, and the August group gift from e.marie. I hope you love them.

Swallow – It had been a little bit since I’d stopped in Swallow to check out all their cool jewelry and such. So I did, and I’m always impressed with their group gift section. During a recent shopping excursion at Swallow I picked up this beautiful bee septum piercing. It comes with a hud that lets you pick from several metallic tones, and switch the full bright on or off. Also it has resize scripts for easy fitting.

The second gift I picked up at Swallow (out of the many available) is a pretty lip applier set. There are 2 applier sets, with 3 lipstick shades (a red, a purple, and a pink) each. I will say that the colors are very similar in the two sets, one set seems just a bit more matte than the other maybe. That said, they are all very pretty on. The appliers work with Catwa heads only. The Swallow group does have a one time join fee of just 40 linden.

E.Marie – The super cute manicure Pru has is the August group gift at e.marie. The set is a fun mix of black, white, gold, and what I would call a rose-gold color with cool graphic images and patterns. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can get a better look. This manicure set from e.marie comes in several fits/sizes. Also, there’s a regular version, and a “shine” version. These are mesh nails, not appliers! The e.marie group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden.
Hand Sizes Included: Slink Dynamic, Vista Prohand, Maitreya Lara

Rainbow Goth

Fantasy Goth
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s been one of those days IRL and I’m thankful that I have my SL to escape to! I’m also super glad you’re here and I get to share some cool Goth Garage Sale Hunt finds with you. This hunt definitely caters to the gothic, wicked, and witchy among us (as the name would suggest). Pru is living out one of my goth/rockabilly fashion fantasies with this look. The GGS Hunt is a 5 linden hunt, meaning each prize is 5 linden. This hunt is taking place at the Goth Garage Sale event. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little black kitty with glowing yellow eyes. Some of the participating vendors have hidden their hunt item within their store booth. Some vendors also have their hunt item hidden on the even grounds near their booth. It was my experience that most items were “hidden in plain sight.” So keep an eye out for those glowing yellow eyes!

The Hair – I think this hairstyle from EscalateD is so fun. It’s a little bit pin-up, a little bit punk-rock, and a whole lot of fun! It is EscalateD’s 5 linden Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. The style comes with a cool dip dye hud with dark hair that has several brightly colored “dips.” There is also a color change hud for the hair bow.

The Necklace – The Little Bat has this beautiful necklace for their Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Purchase their hunt prize and you will receive the neck;ace and a texture/color change hud. The hud has 14 gemstone colors to choose from. The necklace also has resize scripts.

The Septum Piercing – This simple captive bead nose ring is one of two Goth Garage Sale Hunt prizes from Astara. This silver version is just 5 linden and it includes a color change hud for the captive bead. The other Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize from Astara is the same piercing in gold.

The Pillows – These cute pillows are the OOPS Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. For just 5 linden you get a set of unscripted decorative pillows, and a hold-able version. The hold-able version has a texture change hud so you can choose which version of the pillow you want. The decorative pillows can be manually sized.

The Dress – The mid-thigh length dress Pru is wearing is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by WitchCraft. The dress includes a color/texture change hud with 3 different variations of this geometric galaxy print. This 5L prize comes in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and eBody.

The Nails – The intentionally chippy manicure Pru has is from the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Dark Passions. This “Koffin” nails hud gives you 6 vampy pastel polish shades in a chipped or solid option. The appliers will work for fingernails as well as toenails. There is a Slink applier, a Maitreya applier, and an Omega applier included.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

Hmm, is that Stan on the beach over there in the wetsuit? Gosh, he looks pretty hot. I need to get Gavin a wetsuit like that…

OH HEY there, fabulous readers! You caught me ogling the cute guys on the beach today. Shame on me, but what can I say? They look too good not to look, lol! 😎

A New SENSEation

If you haven’t been over to the latest round of the SENSE Event, then you need to go there now! There are quite a few gifts set out, and I know you won’t want to miss them.

Today, I’m wearing two of the gifts, which were set out for members of the TeleportHub in-world group. The Ashley Boho Dress Pink & Mocha is by ALTER and comes in the following mesh sizes:

  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I love the saying on the top, “Let your faith be bigger than your fear.” It’s been my mantra all this week as I’ve been pushing myself to do a few things that are definitely out of my comfort zone. 🙂

The second gift I’m wearing is the pretty Infinite Love necklace, also by ALTER. If you need to, click the necklace to bring up the blue resizer menu.

It’s Getting Hot Warm Out Here

I also picked up the newest group gift from Hello Dave and was delighted to see how perfectly it matched my outfit. The glittery little dragonflies are adorable!

Appliers for Maitreya, Omega, and Slink hands are included.

Hello Dave - Nail Appliers

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Teal for Two

Two for Teal
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Like my new claws? They are a super cute new group gift at E.Marie. Along with the new nails, I picked up this dress from MH Unique. It reminded me a lot of the MH Unique Design dress Aline showed in her post here, which I missed out on. So I was happy to see this more recent group gift. I kinda feel like it’s been one of those “long weeks” even though it’s only Wednesday. Ha! So bare with me and I’ll get you all the hows and wheres of getting your hands on these fantastic group gifts.

The Claws – I love that these are mesh nails that work with bento hands rather than nail appliers. This particular set is a current group gift at E.Marie. The set comes in a few sizes, and the pink/teal color gradient with pretty gold flecks. There are also a few other equally cute group gifts available. The E.Marie group is 50 linden to join. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad so you can get a better look at these super cute nails.
Sizes Included: Slink Dynamic, Vista Prohand, Maitreya Lara
e.marie // Group Gift July

The Dress – This cute sleeveless dress is a current group gift at MH Unique Design. The dress comes with a color change hud that allows you to pick from 10 solid colors, that all seem to have this pretty satiny finish. The MH Unique Design group has a one time join fee of 100 linden at this time.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic Curvy

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Cusp of June

The Cusp of June

There is something to be said about the end of the month of May.  Sure, the beginning is great, absolutely – but the end… ah, the end.  It’s warm, the promise of summer lingers in the air, and you have a flood of memories from when you were at school.  Well, at least I do!  In my neck of the woods, Summer vacation starts at the end of June – so June to me was a magical month filled with play days, and popsicles and evening bike rides, all culminating with the last day of school. That’s when we could jaunt off to the public pool – can’t you just smell the sunscreen?  Ugh.  I love it.

Oops!

I meandered over to The Garage Fair, and found a whole lot of awesomeness.  There are a load of gifts hanging around, all priced at 1L, and some even being free!  I got my somewhat revealing dress from the Cheeky stall, and paid only 1L for it!  I’d say that’s a fair deal! Perfect for my walk to the pool.   My nail polish applier, that I picked up at the January & February booth,  was completely free and I think it looks just spiffing.  (I always wanted to say ‘just spiffing’).  It comes with appliers for Maitreya, and can be changed to several really lovely metallic hues.  I went with the shiny purple, because yay purple!

Dress Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Now go out and enjoy the dawn of the month of June!

Memories of France

Memories of France

I lived in France for a while when I was a teenager.  I really didn’t appreciate it at all at first.  My parents took a year off work and we headed over there.  In my mind, they had taken me away from all my friends and whatever other charms the 90’s held – I assume flannel shirts, Weezer and Jolt Cola.  But as the year we spent there went on, I came to realise that Southern France was quite a charming place (understatement of the century).  I spent a bit of time on the “La Clef des Champs” sim today, pretending I was in Provence.  All that’s missing is the lavender scent!

Toujours Provence

Perhaps my look doesn’t have much to do with the dry heat and fields of Provence, but I do like a bit of incongruousness.   I found a whole bunch of gorgeous gifts at the EBento event this month!  Join the group for free, and you can pick up several fun things.  Here’s what I’m wearing:

  • Beauty Marks by Session (For Lelutka and Catwa Heads) (Free @ Ebento)
  • SlackGirl Bento Nails (Belleza, Slink, Eve, Altamura, Maitreya, Tonic, Tuty and Vista) (Free @ Ebento)
  • Arte Eyeshadow (Lelutka, Catwa and System Heads) (Free @ Ebento)
  • Pose by PoSEsioN (5 in the box!) (Free @ Ebento)

Run on over and see what other gorgeousness you can find at EBento!

The Next Chapter

I also have another gift from The Chapter Four to show you – this top by Have Unequal comes in both black and white and works on Maitreya bodies.  Don’t you love the little clasps on it?  I like a good detail on my clothing!  If you haven’t been to The Chapter Four, do hurry up and nip over – it’s their 5th anniversary.  Join the group for 10 Lindens and get a whole lotta gifts!

I hope you find a bit of heaven in SL today!

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 ~

Thrills and Frills

Thrills and Frills

The other day, Astrid mentioned that I needed to get out and have an adventure.  She was quite right, so I snuck on over to Cythera, land of swamps and mists.  As I plodded my way around the bogs, seeking out thrills, I figured I’d best get some selfies done before an alligator decided to chomp off my legs or some such.  Where’s the nearest Starbucks in this swamp anyway?!

Frills

Although I’m seeking out thrills, I did manage to grab some frills when I was at the Gachaland event the other day.  I showed you some of the hair I got for free yesterday, but toady I’m showing off a whole lot more!  Check out what I got:

  • Hair by Analog Dog (So cute with the headband – loads of different textures to choose from!) Free!
  • Bracelet by Aseriz – Free!
  • Earrings by Nanika – Free!
  • Nail Polish applier by Livia (Comes with Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Vista as well as Astralia Nails) – Free!
  • Pose by Vo.Z (There are 4 poses in this pack) – Free!

Get over to Gachaland and join the Gimme Gacha group for free, then pick up all your gifts.

Seriously though, something just pushed past my leg and I’m not joking!
