Greetings from Little Havana

Greetings From Little Havana

Dear Readers,

I hope this missive finds you all well and enjoying the last days of the Summer season. Julianna has informed me that she is once again working for your Blogging team and her emails are fill to the brim with her typical giddiness. I don’t know when I’ll return to work as I am off on a walk about on the Grid. Don’t tell Juli. I found this prim seaside town recently and I’m staying a few days. Maybe do a little surfing. If you like old world, vintage charm I urge you to visit here in Little Havana.

Dress for the Occasion

Even if the occasion is a casual afternoon sight seeing. I found this well worn Tee at one of my favorite stops: Cold Ash.  The Montana Tee … yes, I know it says California on it, but it’s the Montana Tee is the latest Group Gift from Cold Ash and it’s free. Even the Group is free to join.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Avi
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP

Now, I believe I’m going to test out those waves. Maybe see if the girls in the bikinis are playing volley ball yet…

Cheers,

Gabriel St.James

Seeing Stars

Seeing Stars

I really wish the RL Texas would hurry up and cool down. It’s almost October for crying out loud! At least Second Life has nice early Fall places to hang and pretend it’s a nice cool day. I guess I’ll have to comfort myself with some dollarbies and a couple of FREE group gifts.

MarketPlace Madness and Group Gifts Galore

My cute flirty top is from Harmonia and it’s just one little Linden! I picked the blue one but there’s also a purple one to choose from. Harmonia says that there is a limited number of these tops available so don’t delay if you want one.

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • SLink
  • TMP

My equally cute flirty hair, No Come On, is from No.Match and it’s one of the plethora of Gifts available to group members. The group is 50L to join but there are THIRTY SEVEN past gifts available! That’s like getting… *whips out her calculator* every gift for 1.35L each! Now that’s a bargain!

One last goody. My pastel eye shadow,”Unicorn Magic”, is from [Pout!] and it is one of the free Group Gifts available in the main store. [Pout!] keeps a nice variety of current and past gifts up for group members all the time. And there’s NO join fee!

We Are the Weirdos, Mister

Weirdo
Hi There Fab Free! I feel like this week was one of those that both dragged on and flew by. I wasn’t prepared for today to be he weekend already. Even unprepared, I’m all for it! Just recently Love did a post where she showed us two of the cute new free Lucky Letter Boards at Petite Mort, if you missed it her post is here. I mention it because she let me know that Oubliette had also put new free prizes in their Lucky Letter boards. She also said they reminded her of me. Well I am here to say she was so right! This novelty tank top especially is right up my ally. In addition, this flirty little belted skirt is also a free Lucky Letter board prize at Oubliette. I think it pairs nicely with the top. Keep reading for the who, what, and where of how to get your copy of these fabulous finds.

The Top – As you may or may not know, Petite Mort and Oubliette share a store group. The group is free to join. Also, the single group will grant you access to the free Lucky Boards and Group gifts for both stores. Just be sure to wear your group tag before you start stalking those Lucky Letter boards! This cute top comes in several mesh sizes. Bonus points if you know what movie this quote is from, without having to look it up!

Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Skirt – This is what I would call a micro mini shirt. She is short ya’ll! However, since when has lack of length stopped anyone from wearing a cute skirt in Second Life?! This one is really cute. I think the studded belts also make it fun to wear. Like the top, this skirt is also a free Lucky Letter board prize at Oubliette. It comes in the purple shade shown, with several size options.

Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

One in a Melon

One in a Mellon
Hello Fab Free’rs! We survived Monday! I think that in itself is worth celebrating. I don’t know about you, but I like to treat myself with some shopping, especially when the shopping doesn’t really cost much. Right now you can pick up a set of adorable summertime themed tanks like the one Pru has on for free with your group tag at Hot Elegant Clothing (HEC). This group gift comes in a few different sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s also a fantastic color/texture change hud that not only allows to pick from several preset color/image options, it also lets you choose the opacity of the top, and toggle on or off the full bright option. I love the version Pru has on. It says “One in a Melon.” What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good pun. To get yours simply head over to HEC and join the in-world group. There is a one time join fee of 25 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your HEC group tag.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xxs – L), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Daydreaming of Lisa Frank

Dreaming of Lisa Frank
Hello hello Fab Free! Summer in the southern part of the U.S. (and just about everywhere else from what I understand) has become synonymous with blazing heat. It’s hot out ya’ll! It’s easier to stay cool when you can lounge in the shade wearing a cute little summer dress and open-toe shoes. Both these summer wardrobe essentials are free group gifts you won’t want to miss.

The DressHilly Haalan has more than one free group gift available. The dress Pru has on is the “Debbie” dress. It comes in several sizes, and includes a texture change hud with quite a few graphic tee style options and an equal number of solid colors to choose from. The Hilly Haalan group is also free to join at this time. This fun yellow version with the leopard spots made me instantly think of Lisa Frank. Don’t know who Lisa Frank is? Google her. You’re welcome in advance for all the colorful rainbow goodness. P.S. There’s a copy of the original vendor ad for the Debbie dress toward the bottom of the post.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

The Shoes – These fierce looking purple shoes from Heels are almost as hot as the weather! I kind of want to wear them with everything. The Heels by Morgan W. group is free to join at the moment. These shoe come in the deep purple color shown with a few size options.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Yeah You #SHOOK Me

You #SHOOK Me
Hey there Fab Free’rs, as always I am so glad you’re here! My long week is finally starting to wind down, and I am excited to share with you some awesome group gifts and this pretty Lucky Letter board hairstyle. The group gifts from #SHOOK have me all shook up, pun intended! I’m also pleased as punch with this free Lucky Letter board hairstyle from Little Bones. Thanks to the lovely Grace for the teleport when my letter came up!

The Hair – So either I had forgotten or maybe they are new, I’m not sure, but Little Bones has not 1 but 2 Lucky Letter boards that do not require an sort of group to participate in. Thanks to Grace’s thoughtfulness I was able to pick up the Winona hair pictured in “The Blondie” pack for free.

The Top & Jewelry – I’m over here singing “You #SHOOK me allll night long…” because that song is the first thing that comes to mind when I read the word “shook.” Right now you can get #SHOOK too with their 3 current group gifts. The #SHOOK group is just 50 linden to join, and you can pick up the top, necklace, and choker shown for free while wearing your group tag. The top includes a hud that lets you pick from 3 summery prints, and allows you to custom color or hide the lace edges. The transparent choker is also a free group gift and it comes in 3 variations, one with silver studs (shown), one with gold studs, and one with rose gold studs. The third group gift at #SHOOK is this tiered “Leo” necklace. It comes in 3 versions, one with a moon (shown), one with a star, and one with a heart. The necklace has a color change hud as well with 2 options for the little crystal, and several metal color options.
Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Isis, Freya)

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 ~

TGIF at the Beach!

A little bit of boho_001

I’ve been craving a day at the beach for a while… being landlocked in the middle of the USA… but I’m not exactly a swimsuit kind of gal. This pretty boho skirt with its strappy top was just the perfect answer to my mood. I also picked up a beautiful wavy hairstyle to compliment the look but you’ll have to act fast and pick it up today, as it is a Friday only steal, deal!

Hair first! ~ time sensitive!

Pick up my pretty wavy hairstyle at Exile for only 50L today for 50L Friday. You’ll get a regular mesh style as well as a bento style that waves in the wind. You can pick up a pack of natural colors or a pack of pastels, each for just 50L. I fell in love with this pretty style and couldn’t pass it up. It fit my relaxed mood today just perfectly. The weekend is almost here after all!

Continuing the World Tour…

I wasn’t done with the World Tour Hunt. I’ve already showed you several great prizes and when I ran across the 2L gift at Prism, I knew I had to share it with you Fabulous readers. This gorgeous boho feel skirt and top are meant to be worn on breezy days at the beach or… anywhere really.

Dress sizes available:

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

Going on Tour

Eifle Tower_001

It seemed fitting that since I was on the trail of the world tour hunt that I should visit the Eiffel Tower. I took a picture in front of it with a few of my choice gifts from the hunt. I outfitted myself from hair to shoes for just 6L in World style and you can too… then take a tour of the Tower yourself!

The Hair.

My hair is a free style from Firelight! as part of the World Tour Hunt. Like all the gifts it is just 2L to pick up. It only comes in the brown shade shown, but you do get both a regular version plus a busty version of these luscious locks!

Styling.

My stylish Dress is part of the World Tour Hunt as well and is from Meander. You also get the hat, which I edited to fit in my hand, but you can wear on your head. Again, it is just 2L and a little hunting time for the globe.

Available dress sizes:

Classic XS – L
TMP
Ocacin
eBody
Maitreya
Tonic Fine & Curvy
Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus

Shoes to match.

Pick up my shoes at Lindy Modern & Retro for 2L as part of the World Tour Hunt as well. They just happen to match this dress almost perfectly I think! The gift box includes shoes for Maitreya, Slink and Classic feet!
