Because Puppies

FabFree: Because Puppies

Hey there Fabulouses!  FaMESHed and The Arcade both have some very nice gifts under their trees at their December rounds and they are all free!!  In this blog post, I am showing you one little gift from each event, but there are a whole lot at both!

At The Arcade

Under the giant tree at the center of The Arcade Event you’ll find plenty of free gifts under the tree for you, just priced at 0L.  No need to join a group, just grab those gifts!  I am wearing the gift by Enchante today, which is the HUD driven texture change Constance Choker. (Tip:  After you are done admiring the pretty tree – derender it! … it makes it easier to see all the gifts)

At FaMESHed

You’ll need to join the group to be able to pick up the free gifts under the tree in the center of the FaMESHed event, however the group is free to join.  I am wearing Elikatira’s gift, which is an essentials pack of the Juniper hairstyle (actually when I edit the gift it shows Tatiana too, but it didn’t deliver for me – did it for you?).  The essentials pack contains a little bit of everything from all the colour packs, so I’m sure you’ll find a shade for you.  It includes the texture change leather accessory too!

This sweet little dress…

This sweet little dress is called Indra and is available for sale at ZK Store.  I couldn’t help but pair this boho inspired frock with the Elikatira Juniper hair when I saw it!

By the Light of the Moon

By the Light of the Moon

Hello Fabulouses!  Under the light of a full moon, Ripley and I are pausing for a moment to catch our breath before diving right back into the hunt for more Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers!  Speaking of “hunting,” the cute little frock I’m wearing in the photo is a hunt prize that I scooped up for just five Linden dollars as part of the Skull N Bones Black Widow Hunt.

Beware the Spider’s Kiss

With a flirty and fun asymmetrical hemline, halter style neckline, and spider web print, that Tattered Widow dress will have you set for the season.  There’s even a spooky arachnid medallion at the top of the bodice.  Although the texture looks shiny in my photo, that’s from a face light I was wearing.  Normally, the fabric was matte on my screen.  To play up the holiday vibe, I added a witch hat and slinky black boots, but I’m sure you could create a more subtle look with different hair and shoes.  Since the hunt box contains versions for classic and mesh bodies, as well as Dinkies, I’m sure you’ll find just the right fit for your avatar.  To add this delightfully spooky frock to your wardrobe, simply teleport over to the Little 2 Large Shop and locate the potion bottle labeled “Spider’s Kiss.”  There’s a trail of black widow spiders along the ground to point you in the right direction, and a handy hint giver if you get stumped.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Standard Small and Large (includes prim skirt, system top, pants, and alpha layer)
  • eBody
  • Dinkies
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Omega applier

While we still have plenty of moonlight left, we’d better be on our way.  Until next time, happy hunting!

My Milkshake Brings All the Boys to the Yard

My Milkshake
Hello again Fab Free! So maybe my milkshake isn’t bringing boys to the yard, but it should bring you guys to Limit8! This strawberry milkshake, among quite a few other things, is a free Limit8 group gift in celebration of the current Birthday round of Limit8. Most if not all of the participating designers have set out a free gift. All you need to do to get yours is head over to Limit8, join the in-world group (It’s free to join) and click the little brown paper wrapped presents at each booth while wearing the Limit8 group tag. I spotted everything from poses and props, to clothing and jewelry. There are even some housewares.  I picked out a few of these awesome free gifts to share with you. Also, thanks to Love’s much needed and appreciated help, you’ll get to see one or two of the gifts in action. I hope you love them!

Eyes – So after I took the above photo, I realized you really can’t see these gorgeous eyes by NamiiChu. They are part of a set of mesh eyes available for free at Limit8. The set includes 4 pairs of individual eyes so you can mix and match them. These pupil-less eyes have an otherworldly look to them that I think is really beautiful. To get yours, join the free Limit8 group and click the gift box at the NamiChu booth at the Limit8 event.

So Close!

Face Moles – The second above photo shows these cute face moles by Arise a bit better as well. This variation is one of 6 included in the Catwa hud. I think they are not only super cute, but a great way to customize your favorite skin a bit further. You can get this Catwa applier hud by Arise for free at Limit8. Once again, don’t forget that Limit8 group tag!

Strawberry Milkshake – Alright, so I’m a sweet-a-holic, and strawberry is hands down my favorite milkshake flavor. So Pru taking home this free Limit8 group gift milkshake by PewPew! was simply meant to be.  This detailed strawberry milkshake by PewPew! comes equipped with a bento hold pose, which you’ll see in action in the video below.

Booty Dance – Finally, I could not resist showing you this free Limit8 group gift booty dance by Sync’D Motion. Thankfully, Love was willing to help me out by putting together this awesomely hilarious video. The dance is too fun, and well all things considered the song went perfectly! I do want to note that because Pru is holding the milkshake by PewPew! while dancing some of the hand animations that are part of the dance are not shown.

Oh How You Sparkle

Full of Stars

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday (or what’s left of it, anyway, lol).   I had such a busy day in RL that the hours just flew by.  Isn’t it funny that that never happens when you are in the middle of a dental appointment?  It’s just when I want time to slow down that it seems to whiz by.  That sure is the case when I am shopping and exploring in SL, especially when I find wardrobe essentials for free like this star spangled skater skirt.

Oh How You Shine

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, I was able to scoop up the 4th of July Skater Skirt from Ecce Bellus completely for free.  With a bright waistband, navy and red stars scattered across a snow white background, and a generous cut, this adorable number is sure to lift your spirits.  Since the gift package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, I’m sure you will find the perfect fit for you.  I chose to keep my look clean and bright by pairing my skirt with a white top, but I also tried red and navy shirts, and was quite pleased with those results as well.   To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, look for the Fab Free logo on the wall, click the vendor, then get ready to shine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • E Body
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy shopping!

Beach Ball

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!

  • Wall Decor – Apple Fall Copper Shovel & Pitchfork (free FaMESHed group gift / 0L / free to join)
  • Pictures – Fancy Decor Harpsichord Prints (free FaMESHed group gift / 0L / free to join)
  • Floor Plant – N4RS Fasciata (free FaMESHed group gift / 0L / free to join)
  • Floor Light – Refuge Spring Gala Table Light (free FaMESHed group gift / 0L / free to join)
  • Table Flower – Keke Peony. group gift Spring 2 (free FaMESHed group gift / 0L / free to join)
  • Table Cup – Entwined Pomegranate Cup (free FaMESHed group gift / 0L / free to join)

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!
