It’s cStar’s birthday, but the presents are for YOU!

Hey fabbies! I’d like to first apologize for my absence as of late, I’ve been battling a hectic and packed life away from my keyboard, as well as re-downloading ALL of my programs, drivers, software, etc. after having to completely wipe my computer’s hard drive thanks to a lovely (not!) computer virus which infected my system recently… let’s just say my week’s been full of fun!

Second, cStar limited, one of SL’s most loved skin shops, is celebrating their 5th birthday here in SL, but instead of GETTING presents, they’re GIVING 10 FREE skins away! What’s the catch? You have to find them! This is not your standard hunt either, you’ll have to look on various social media websites, as well as in the group (the gift in the platinum group and regular group are the same, so don’t fret if you’re not in both!), and in the store to get all 10. Each skin has a hint NC inside with how to find the next one, and the next one, and so on, so you’re not completely helpless finding them. In alphabetical order, the skins you’ll receive throughout this fun scavenger hunt are:

So, now that I’ve piqued your interest (I hope!), I have a smidge of sad news to share with all of you. I am going to be stepping away from blogging for Fabfree for a while in order to focus on my real life. I’ve sent out a notice to the blogger group giving a bit of an explanation, but I feel that I should share it with all of you as well, so here goes:

Blogging for fabfree has been something I’ve wanted, and aspired to do, since I discovered the blog several years ago, and having the opportunity to be part of this team has really meant the world to me. However, my life outside of the computer has taken an odd and busy turn, I’m not sure it’s going to change any time soon, and I’m honestly not sure I’d want it to. I don’t feel, at this moment, that I have the time to put the effort into fabfree that the readers deserve, and that the rest of the team has come to expect, and so I feel that it’s time for me to take a few steps back and focus on the world outside for a while.

This is in no way, shape, or form a “Goodbye”! I plan to bother you guys all the time, point out freebies when I see them, keep my position as a mod in the fabfree group, and I definitely plan to re-join the blogger team when my life settles down, but for now, I’m going to do “me” for a while…. or rather “us”, since a big part of the changes going on involve my  fantastic and adorable partner.

All the best of luck, and all of love in the world,
Skyler Glasswing ♥

Enjoy your weekend getaway with an outfit from the HQ!

Hey fabbies! It looks like you’ve almost survived another week! Woo! Keep going, the weekend is just around the corner, and in case you need the perfect outfit for a sunny weekend getaway, I’ve got you covered!

Snapshot_571

There are a ton of great gifts out at Fabfree HQ, and today I’ve put together an outfit that I think would be great for a trip to the lake, a walk on the beach, or just about any occasion!

Snapshot_572

When you want to showcase to the world just how fabulous you are, the fab top from Banger island creations has just the thing you need!  This top is a fairly new addition to the fabfree HQ, and is available for FREE for everyone, you don’t even need to join a group! It’s 100% rigged mesh, comes in all 5 of the standard female sizes, and will give your wardrobe 100% more fabulous!

Snapshot_573

The shorts that I have on were previously shown by the fabulous Love back in April [HERE], but they went with my top so perfectly that I just could not resist showing them off again. These are a freebie from TuttiFruti, and can be found at our lovely HQ, along with a ton of other wonderful things (including my top!) The pack contains the shorts you see above in all 5 standard sizes, and 3 different colour options: (left to right) Rose, which is a super light pale pink striped, a combo of a ton of great spring/summer colours, and dark blue, which are a really lovely dark denim, and will go with just about anything. A perfect addition to your wardrobe, and without costing you a single Linden!

Dress: Cstar – Vintage navy classic dress (5L$)
Clutch: Duh! – Gold little red clutch (20L$)
Shoes: Duh! – Red velvet flats (Subscribo gift)
Belt: Thoranua – Red belt leather

Hello beautiful people! I have another post here featuring one of the 5L$ items in the secret dressing room at the fashion’s story fair. If you want to know how to get to the secret dressing room then read Care’s post here. She explains how the hunt works and you’ll need it if you want to find this pretty dress from Cstar! 😉

My hair is a dollarbie on the marketplace by Me-I and it’s called Yuki! The 1L$ version only comes in red so I tinted it black to better match my outfit but the store is full of hairs that start from 0L$ so it’s definitely worth filling up your shopping cart on those!

Feeling like a cStar

Skin: Glam affair – Neva
Hair: Me-I – Yuki (1L$)
Headpiece: Gspot – Ghaalia’s gems Hairnet gold rare (Fantasy gacha carnival, opens tomorrow)
Necklace: Sleepy Eddy – Pocket watch necklace (The Arcade, closes today!)

My shoes and clutch are both from Duh! The clutch is 20L$ on the marketplace and comes with a black version as well and the shoes are a past subscribo gift. Just check the history and you’ll find lots and lots of free shoes!

Catch a Shining CStar

CStar has the Mr. August Skin on the lucky chair this month. This skin can be won in 12 different tones. I waited around long enough to grab three to show you. The Pale Skin is one of the lighter tones.

CSTAR Mr August Pale

On the other end of the tones I won the Dark Skin. I tried hard to get a middle tone, but it wasn’t meant to happen.

CStar Mr August Dark

The Deep Dark Skin is one of the darkest skins.

CStar Mr August DeepDark

At Sacred Skinline , just click the answering machine on the yellow barrels and answer how you found the shop and receive the Sacred Free Skin. This as a quality skin if you don’t mind the band-aid on the cheek.

{enter witty / meaningful post title here}

As you can see.. it got to Sunday and mah brain stopped working for a post title. Oh well. Onward to the goodies!

CStar have a new Limited Edition skin of the month out in their Lucky Chairs. Twelve sets of skins to be won, 6 skin tones with 2 different make-up/effects on the skins.

Here is a close up of the make up on the skin.

I was stalking it for a while and I finally managed to win the Pale set to show you. You get two tones in each skin tone pack. A light and a darker version. I really need to make an alt with a more widely loved letter as the initial! W is not a Lucky Chairs favourite *laughs*. The lingerie in these pictures is from Lingerie by Hollee and is called Blossom priced at 60L.

AQUA have released a new subscribo group gift for males and females. The females is a subscribo exclusive colour of their soon to be released Ever Song dress..

The males get this handsome Pieces of Valentine tux that matches the Ever Song dress. If you arent in the subo, simply tp to the store and join up to get the gifts. While your there, don’t forget to take a look at the 10L Limited Edition colour Ever Song preview gown that I previously blogged, you won’t be disapointed!

Dutchie Furniture continue their week of picks gifts! Today is the last day of gifts, but you will still have a few days after to be able to add the store to your picks and then get the gifts before they are removed. Here are the two gifts that were put out yesterday and today..

Please note that you get an armchair with the sofa, but SL was being a little argumentative about rezzing it for me so I could show you. The Lime Green Prestige dress worn in this picture is the Midnight Mania prize from OeEas!

Remember it takes between 24 – 48 hours for the system to recognise you have the store in your picks and don’t forget to tick the make your profile searchable box on the front of your profile.

Sassy Kitty has a group gift of these high waisted skirts in the notices of their subscribomatic.. they won’t be there for long though so hurry while you can.

The purple cropped sweater and the purple shrug are both freebies from the stack of free gifts in the center of the main store.

Lo Momo have this kawaii maids outfit as their group gift. Join the group and tap the picture on the shelves behind the counter to join in the cutesy fun!

The skin worn in most of the pictures is one of the new 50L May Skins from Heartsick. There are two sets to choose from this time both in the Meadowsweet make up.

This is the Wish version of the Meadowsweet make up. You get the Illusion and Bliss skin tones both with cleavage, freckles and beautymark options.

This is the Yume version of the Meadowsweet make up! You get this in the Illusion and the Reverie skin tones, again both with cleavage, freckles and beautymark options. Yume is the new soon to be released skin and I can’t wait for them to arrive! The lingerie worn in these pictures is the opening dollarbie from eVe.

Other Info
