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 ~

Zoom to the Beach

Zoom to the Beach

Happy Weekend, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided on a getaway to the beach, and journeyed over to the sandy shore at the Luane’s World for a little bit of R&R.  While he is off chasing sea gulls, I thought I’d tell you about a free outfit that I picked up as a group gift.

She’s a Little Bit Foxy

My strappy top and jeans came paired together in the same package that I scooped up for free over at Zoom Design.  This outfit is perfect for an impromptu spring day spent strolling along the beach, and came with two color change HUDS (one each for the top and pants), so you can select your favorite hue.  With six options for the jeans and top, you can create a multitude of combinations, so it’s like getting a bunch of outfits all rolled into one free box.  With classic as well as mesh body versions, this is a versatile gift that will make a terrific addition to anyone’s spring wardrobe.  To scoop up a copy for yourself, simply head over to Zoom Design, activate the group tag, and click the vendor.  There is a 99L join fee, but with membership, you have access to group only lucky and midnight mania boards, as well as an assortment of group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (for both jeans and top)
  • Alpha layers for jeans and top for classic avatars
  • Jeans:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Top:  Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just Fabulous…

Anywhere but Here_001

There are days when it would be *fabulous* to be anywhere but here. We all know how it goes. We want to pack up our bags and head somewhere else… maybe the beach or maybe the big city. I have a trip planned later in the summer that I know I’m really looking forward to myself! It will be *fabulous* to just get away from it all!

Speaking of Fabulous…

… isn’t this FabFree group gift from JellyRoll just fabulous? Yes! I mean the hoodie in my picture above. It’s the newest free Fabfree group gift from JellyRoll. As always the FabFree group remains free to join so this gift won’t cost you a single linden. Just hop on down to JellyRoll and pick it up.

Hoodie Sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

While You’re There…

While you’re at JellyRoll, be sure to check out the other merchandise. Currently there is a 50% off sale running since the store just moved to it’s new location. The sale ends May 1st, so be sure to hurry. I snagged the Weekender Jeans in the picture for just 49L and the colorchange Betty Peeptoes for just 65L! You don’t want to miss out on the great prices in the store. Lots of fatpacks of clothes are well under 200L for tons of colors of items and many single items are under 100L.

Last One In’s a Rotten Egg (Hunt)

Shadow
Hello Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I have a time sensitive, sultry outfit to share with you today, so I’m going to jump right in to the details.  This stunner of a mini dress from [Witchcraft] can be yours for just 5L as part of the Rotten Egg Hunt (hence the title of this post) that is taking place on the Lanisha sim.  The hunt runs only until April 28th, so there are just a few days left to skip over to the sim, and collect some fabulous finds.  Over 30 stores are participating in the hunt, and the prizes, which cost anywhere from 1-5L, are scattered throughout the sim.  This frock features a halter style neckline with a circular adornment on the bodice, and rows of silvery sequins, which trace your curves.  Sheer on the edges, but opaque in all the right places, this dress is super sexy.  Its asymmetrical hemline adds visual interest.  Mesh body as well as Standard versions are included, but there is no alpha layer.  The package also includes the shoes in my photo.  I really love the added touch of the bows which sit just above ankle height in these heels.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Standard Large Avatar
  • Standard Small Avatar
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink

Until my next post, happy hunting!

The Moon Sees Me

The Moon Sees Me
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I have had such a mixed up day, nothing terrible, I just keep getting my schedule wrong. So I decided to retreat into my favorite alternate reality, Second Life, and share a few lovely free April group gifts with you. First, this witchy tube top from Oubliette. Then these kick ass unisex kicks from Versov.

The Top – Gleefully I picked up this “boob tube” top from Oubliette. It is black and reads “WITCH” across the chest. It’s the perfect warm weather top for the little witchy side of my personality. I love how cute it is on, not too tiny but still a tube top. To get your free copy head over to the Oubliette shop and join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group if you’re not already a member. The group is currently free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Shoes – Run, don’t walk over to Versov and pick up these highly detailed unisex shoes. They are a free group gift at Versov, and the Versov group is free to join at this time. The shoes come in several male and female sizes, and have a color change hud that lets you pick between several preset colors for 9 individual parts of the shoe. I got the impression that the Versov group may not always be free to join, so don’t wait!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Male, Female), Signature, Slink (Male, Female), TMP (Male, Female), Unrigged, Aestethic

Here are the details, enjoy!

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!

XoXo

xoxo_001

I decided to stay in bed today. I think I’ll just curl up with the remote and watch cartoons and drink hot cocoa and forget about the world for a while. A couple of days ago I went out with my hunt buddy and we found some pretty things that I thought I’d share with you and they seemed fitting for a day snuggled between the sheets.

XOXO

My sweet kisses shirt is by Sin Original and is part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt. You can get it for just 1L and it features kisses on it as well as X’s and O’s on the design. It comes in several sizes to fit your mesh body needs.

Shirt sizes available:

  • TMP
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A little silver

I also picked up a sweet circle pendant as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt at Florian. This too was just 1L and is yours for a little hunting time to find the little black bag. It is pretty, delicate, and adjustable, and would fit with most outfits, rather casual or dressy. I loved the detailing on this pretty bauble!

Lady Luck

Flight_001

I’ve always wanted to head to Vegas and try my luck at the slots, not that it would be good for my wallet I’m sure! But I went out and got lucky on the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt with my hunt buddy and came up with a few hunt items and then headed to Pandora Resort for some sun and fun and that was almost as good 😉

Lucky Lady

This Lucky Lady tank top by Sassitude made me think of the Vegas Strip and all its lights and glamour. And that’s what got me dreamy about hitting it big at the casinos! Especially with the shirts logo and dice and the words on it! Either way, for only a little hunting time and 1L, you’re sure to hit it big with this shirt in your inventory! It’s a nice little addition as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin V1 & V2
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Top it off.

Every girl needs a hat or two in her inventory (and every guy for that matter as well). I picked up my hat from Tiar, also as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and only cost me 1 tiny linden. The hat is supposed to be the men’s gift inside the store (there was a nice ladies gift too), but I found the men’s hat to be nicely unisex and easily resizable to fit over my hair with just a tiny bit of editing. I thought it went well with my “Vegas look”. What do you think?

Happy high rolling and see you in Vegas! Even if only in Second Life!
