Hong Kong Garden

Hong Kong Garden

Have you ever seen the movie Marie Antoinette?  The one starring Kirsten Dunst and featuring a whole bunch of awesome 80’s music.  I really love the movie a lot, it’s just so visually stunning.  One of the songs on the soundtrack is Hong Kong Garden by Siouxie and the Banshees, and I’m just kinda feeling the vibe of that song in this dress, mixed with the pastel hues of the Sofia Coppola film.  Want your own dreamy dress?  It’s easy as pie!

Senses Working Overtime

I found this lovely high-necked dress by Celestina’s Weddings at the Sense Event.  Join their group for free, and pick up this pretty confection which features a daring split up the side tied at a jaunty angle.  I feel like I could do really cool things in this dress, for some reason.  Well, at the very least I know it would look great dressed up for a fancy event!

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

A Bit of Sparkle

I also managed to come across some great baubles to complete my look – these bangles are a free gift at Oxide – no group join required, just pay the vendor 1L which will be returned to you along with these pretty bracelets.  So cute.  I also got some free earrings that I snapped up by clicking on the subscriber, and then clicking on the gifts below it.  There are all sorts of goodies to be had over at Oxide, so be sure to check them out!

Guess which movie I’m watching tonight?

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 ~

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/20/2018 – Continuum

Continuum Exterior
Hellooo Fab Free’rs! Fab Free Designer Friday is back this week. I know you’ll enjoy it! This week the post is all about Continuum Fashion. Continuum is a ladies clothing store split into two sections. One side is what you might call “going out” wear, think sexy cute dresses and skirts. The other side is shoes and frilly lingerie. As soon as you land at the Continuum main store, you’ll be greeted by new releases and the first opportunity to score a free gift.
Continuum Gifts & Offers
The Continuum Subscriber is located just outside the entrance. There is where you can pick up the free set of butterfly hair sticks, they are the current Subscriber gift. There is a discount area toward the back of the store with lots of cute inexpensive finds. The group Midnight Mania board is also located toward the back of the store. First, I’m getting a little ahead of myself. You’ll want to be sure and pay attention to the wall of group gifts behind the front desk just inside the entrance.

Continuum Gifts & Offers 2
The top photo above shows the wall behind the circulation desk at Continuum. There are several group gifts for various store affiliated groups to be had here. This is also where you will find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to all Fab Free group members, so don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. You may recall this Fabulous gift from Love’s post “Don’t Quit Your Daydream.” Also you will find the free Continuum Fashion group gifts on the same wall.  The Continuum Fashion group is free to join as well. Finally, that same back room I mentioned, it also has some group lucky chairs, alongside the Midnight Mania board, and the discounted items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

I have a love-hate relationship with lucky boards.  There are some that I totally adore, because I stand there for about 5 minutes and get a whole lotta swag.  Then there are others that I believe must hate me.  I stand there for ages, hoping for that letter A to pop up, and all I see is things like “number 5” or “Q”.  What the heck man!  What gives?  Despite the sometime frustration of standing beside boards that like to taunt me, I do get some really awesome stuff, and today is no exception!

Lucky Letter Love

Empire – purveyor of awesome shoes galore – have just put out 5 new lucky boards, and they’re completely free!  You don’t have to join the VIP group for these ones, there’s another update group to join that gets you these pretty little sandals!  The group joiner for this is right beside the lucky boards in store.  I got the Penstemon shoes, that are just so sweet and come in 20 colours – you can even change the colour of the gems on the bows.  Gorgeous!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Toodledoo Baby
  • Toodledoo Kid

Top it Off

There’s no waiting and hoping for this gift from Promagic – just click on their free subscriber and you’ll get this really cute tank top that is splashed with happy colours.  You may need to click and go into the “history” section of the subscriber to find their April gift, and if that doesn’t work, just unsubscribe and re-subscribe, because that totally worked for me!  This top fits my Maitreya body perfectly.

Right – back to waiting for some more gifts to pop out of this lucky board!

Tending Bar

Tending Bar_001

Tending Bar

Speaking of 80’s Rock bands… while Aline and Love were have a conversation about Whitesnake videos, I was tending bar at Thames River Valley, and 80’s music just happened to be on the radio. Coincidence huh? I like the 80’s bands, reminds me of my childhood. Yeah, I’m old.

Old but…

… feeling Fabulous… in my FabFree gift from House of Ruby. If you haven’t picked it up yet, stop by the main-store and nab this great applier shirt free for Fabfree group members. It’s applier only (Omega and Slink) and fits like a glove. It comes in this great turquoise color fit for any occasion. As always, FabFree group gifts won’t cost you a single linden.

Tending Bar_002

Another great shirt…

Same store, but another great shirt. While I was at House of Ruby, I noticed the wall of gifts currently out for both men and women and clicked the Double T-shirt in Black for men. It didn’t require a group space at all. I just had to subscribe to information and the gift was sent to me free. A win-win in my book. Two shirts great shirts for one stop for the day. This one is also an applier shirt in Omega and Slink appliers.

Another set of bracelets.

I showed you the free Chop Zuey Castory bracelets in blue in my post [here]. But I happen to be a member of the Chop Zuey group and had also picked them up in black and so put them on for this post. They are a great look I think! The Chop Zuey group has a one-time fee of 350 linden, but the creator puts out frequent and generous men’s and women’s gifts, making it well worth the fee if you stay in the group.

Have a great Easter!

Fab Free Designer of the Day – 03/24/2018 – Zuri

Zuri Entrance
Well Hello Fab Free’rs! So I will just come right out and admit it, I completely dropped the ball on this week’s Designer Friday post. However, do not let that deter you from all the fabulous shopping at Zuri. This enormous jewelry store is a jewelry lovers paradise. Zuri has everything your bejeweled heart could desire. There are items for men as well as the ladies, and even couples items like wedding bands. There are also many gifts, sales, and other offers happening all over this 3 story jewelry store! At the entrance shown above, you can get your first FREE gift from Zuri by joining their subscriber.
Zuri Gifts and Offers
As you head inside the Zuri main store you can follow the pink footprints to some Steals & Deals along with Midnight Mania boards and other awesome discounts. First however, you’ll want to make a pit-stop at the Zuri circulation desk. Not only can you pick up the info you need about an Easter hunt happening in the store, there are a hand full of gifts waiting to be picked up. The Zuri in world group has a one time join fee of 299 linden. This grants you instant access to the several group gifts, the group Midnight Mania, shopping discounts and much more. There’s even a board at the circulation desk that will give you a note card about all the group perks.

On the wall near/behind the circulation desk is also where you’ll find the Zuri exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. To get this FREE gift you just need to wear your Fab Free group tag. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. The fun doesn’t stop there, you’ll find a little area on the first floor with the currently available Zuri group gifts. From there you’ll definitely want to explore the second floor.
Zuri Get Lucky
On the second floor of the Zuri Jewelry store you’ll find more dazzling goodness. I spotted two Lucky Chairs, and a yummy looking Lucky Dip. Each of these offers a lovely jewelry prize. I would even consider the Lucky Chair prizes to be unisex. There is also a third floor of Zuri Jewelry to explore. You will definitely want to check that out, there is a cool little observatory up there as well. Also don’t forget to keep an eye out for those Easter eggs! Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Notes on Ombré

Notes on Ombré

I’m all about the ombré look.  There is something quite appealing in the fading of colours together that makes me feel a bit like I’m wearing a painter’s palette.  I can picture myself swirling graciously on a canvas.  Or perhaps, depending on the colours, I can be an electric current.  Today I’m feeling a bit like the latter, but that might be because of this hot outfit, and not just the colours!

Hucci Mama!

Hucci has provided me with this really cool jumpsuit.  It comes all in one piece and includes the attached heels!  I love the pastel ombré of course, and the outfit makes me feel like making my way to a club and holding court on the dance floor.  In fact, that’s where I’m heading in the photo!  You can grab this FREE gift by heading to Hucci, clicking on the subscriber (It’s the big sign that says Group Join), then clicking on the little box that says “Touch Here to get Previously Sent Items”.  A menu will pop up, and from there you choose the February Gift, and click “Deliver”.  Ta-Da!  You may have to be a little patient, but it will happen 😉

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!
