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 ~

OH. Bubbles!

FabFree: Oh! Bubbles!
Hello there Fabulous Readers!  It’s a hot one out there today so I took a trip to the beach for a little sun and fun.  Don’t worry, I didn’t forget my hat…  or the bubbles! FYI:  These animated bubbles by ChicChica that are available for sale at the current round of The Cosmopolitan Sales Room are so much fun.

It was worth the wait!

TRUTH was a little late in sending out their April group gift, but let me tell you, it is worth the wait!  Jacica is a playful summer hairstyle that includes a whole fatpack of colours, an accessory HUD to change the colours of the hair bands and the hat as well as choose from plenty of different hat graphics.  The hair stylist HUD is also included and it allows you to wear the double buns or side pony tails and there are bang and wisp options too!  The Truth group is 350L to join, but there are amazing monthly group gifts.  I’d have purchased this one alone for that price!
TRUTH Jacica

Bikini Babe

I thought this Bikini Babe Set from 1Hundred was so cute with the bows at the hips and the vibrant summer hues.  Best part about this halter bikini top that ties in the front?  No tan lines on the back! Anyways, this suit comes in plenty of size options as listed below and is available at The Sunny Side Up Wash Event for… you guessed it – 10L (in several different colours!)

Sizes Included:

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

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.

FREE ATHLETIC WEAR!

Ladies, don’t worry…  This isn’t like the RL athletic wear company that gives you the first one for free and then sends you another one priced at a billion dollars for the rest of your life.  This is simply a free group gift that you can pick up and just enjoy with no commitment!

How to get it…

Head on over to Kitja and join their inworld group.  This will set you back 20 whole lindens, but they do offer group gifts from time to time so it’s a good one to join and stay in if you can.  On the floor at the desk you’ll find a gift box beside the ad for this fantastic grey and pink 2-pc. athletic set called Kiss Outfit.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

A Little Light Reading

Light Reading_001

The weather has been a little crazy where I live lately – cold in the mornings and hot in the afternoons. For me… the temperature change is just plain uncomfortable and impossible to dress to go outside for. So I’d much rather stay inside and curl up with a good book. Right now, my guilty pleasure is a Laurell K. Hamilton novel… shhh don’t tell anyone, but I love the Anita Blake series!

Yup, I’m getting old.

And that means I need reading glasses. Luckily, AstroidBox has me covered with some extremely stylish ones that are absolutely free. These silver framed beauties will only cost you a group space and they are aptly named “serpent” frames as they have a snake on the sides. The detailing is terrific and they are also resizable. I love, love, love these! Pick them up while you have the chance!

An unexpected surprise.

I stopped by Crom to pick up the latest group gift and was surprised by a special promo. There are three free to all gifts out that you can buy for 0L. I am wearing one of them, the Elizabeth White shirt, in the picture above. Pick up all three of these gifts before they disappear. No group required. If you want the group gift, you can nab that too. The Crom group is free to join. I also slapped the subscriber while I was there and was rewarded with a pretty free dress just for subscribing! Lots of gifts, one stop!

Gift Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

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.
