You’re On My Mind

You're On My Mind
Good morning FabFree! Just a quick little post to show off a super affordable look I put together today 🙂

Summer Boho Chic

I am a big fan of Petite Mort and their weekly specials!  This week you can pick up the Black Zoe Maxi Dress for just 50L.  This long casual dress is perfect for a summer boho chic look.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

Ink Yourself

The bolero tattoo you see on my skin today is called Dalla and it is available as a free group gift at Aurica with a free group join.  Compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP and Omega – this tattoo will go really nice with so many sleeveless summer dresses and tops!  There are several group gifts at Aurica including ink and even a dress which I have previously blogged [HERE].

The Final Touch

To add a little shine to my ensemble, I have added the Pure Poison Floral Earrings which are available at this round of FaMESHed as a free group gift.  I am wearing the gold version because they match perfect with the gold accents on the dress, however they do also come in silver.

Hey there FabFree!  Thank goodness it’s Friday 🙂 It’s been a long week and I can’t wait for a Saturday morning like this, with my hair up, and my apparel comfy!  The fact that almost all of this stuff is free, is a sweet, sweet weekend bonus!

Go on.. fatpack it – it’s free!

The little Maitreya fitted cropped top you see me wearing is called the Ana Top and is available as a free group gift at Via Fulo with a free group join.  This gift comes with a texture change HUD that allows for six colour options.

I couldn’t help but purchase the Karen Shorts near the gift vendor because they look so cute with this gift.  I got the black shorts, because it will match with all the colours in the HUD!

Still Unpacking FaMESHed Group Gifts!

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 ~

Finally, FaMESHed!

Finally! FaMESHed!
Hey there Fabulous Readers!  I know I have taken photos of this scrumptious jumpsuit by APHORISM before in a tan shade previously, but I couldn’t show it off on the Fabulously Free in SL Blog because it wasn’t free… (www.flickr.com/photos/61141242@N05/40640383711).

Guess what though…

NOW you can pick up this beautiful limited edition shade of blue in the same APHORISM Eve Jumpsuit at this round of FaMESHed as a free group gift!  In fact…  there are several free group gifts at this Anniversary round of FaMESHed, and I am sure you will be seeing plenty of them here on FabFree over the next few weeks!

Aphorism Eve Jumpsuit Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

Free Shoes Too!

I’m also wearing a pair of sweet Andrea Lace Up Heels in Black that I picked up as a free group gift by Narcisse at FaMESHed.  It’s a little tough to see them under these long flared pant legs, but I’ll say that they are fabulous – and work great with this particular outfit with no interference.  Not only that…  they match the black belt!  You’ll find both Maitreya and Slink fits in the box :).

The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join, so all of these gifts are 100% free, and don’t worry if you can’t get in right away… It goes on all month.

I'm sorry for the things I said when it was winter :)

Hey there Fabulouses!  It has been a long winter and I may have said a few things I shouldn’t have in frozen frustration, but it’s time to move forward, smile and build up those spring and summer 2018 inventories.

Blue Monday

Blue Monday

Hey there, fabulous readers! I was so tired of snow that I packed a few bags, hopped in my car, and sped off to the first warm, sunny sim I could find. There are several really cute shops to browse through here, so I think I’ll be busy for a few days. 🙂

But First, The ‘Stuff

Before heading out on my little vacay, I picked up a few items on the All-‘stuff Hunt trail. Today I’m sharing the Womenstuff Hunt gift from Ghee: this beautiful Navy Rosa Dress.

The dress is sized for the following:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh with an alpha layer for classic avatars

Now… if I could just find someone to help me with these bags…

She’s A Snowflake Sweetie

AphorismWOHWasabiPillsSale

Hi there FabFree Readers!  Just sledding by to let you know that Aphorism is participating in the Women Only Hunt, and if you can spot the correct hidden snowflake in store, you can grab the newly released Bridget Sweater in a limited edition Snowflake print for FREE!  This shop does have a few clever decoys as well…  but don’t give up because one of the unique snowflakes has a prize in it that is worth the hunt!

Bridget Comes With Options

The red and white limited edition print Bridget Sweater has a long sleeved layered look to it with a snowflake on the chest.  It includes a HUD that allows you to change the colour of the bottom of the shirt to three different choices or take it right off for a super tiny cropped top that shows off a little sexy underboob.  Sorry folks, yep…  I just said “underboob”.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Freya Slinkfit
  • Belleza Isis
  • Belleza Isis Slinkfit

One More Hairy Thing…

If you haven’t heard already…  Wasabi is having a HUGE sale with most older styles being priced at 50L, but some are even 25L!  The button hat hairstyle I am wearing today, Lumi is included in the sale and is just 50L.  I managed to pick up WAY too  many, but I am glad I did because WHAT A DEAL!

HUGE SALE & NEW STORE!
