A Little Beach Therapy Never Hurt Anyone

FabFree: A Little Beach Therapy
Hey there Fabulouses!  After a long, hot stressful week, I took some time out this weekend to check out The Beach Therapy Hunt.  I am super glad I did because I found an amazing bikini set!  I finished up the rest of my beachy look with a pair of free group gift shoes, and the hair with the visor was free too!

Where To Find All The Things…

    •  At Del Alba Creations, you can hunt down the hidden hunt icon for The Beach Therapy Hunt (which is a beach umbrella), and once you have found it…  You can pick it up for 1L and you’ll have the Marisa three piece bikini set shown that includes the bikini top, bottoms and little leafy printed wrap sarong too.
    • These fantastic woven wedge sandals called Anais are made by ZK and are available as a free group gift at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room with a free group join.  They include a texture change hud with a ton of colours and fit Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet!
    • One more thing…  the hair and hat!  Isn’t this fun for summer?  I was luck enough to get in on the free Midnight Mania offer over at Moon the other day when the Radio Romance hairstyle, including the scrunchie and visor in a fatpack of colours was available!  The Midnight Mania board at Moon is open to all with no group join required and the prizes seem to change daily in a rotation so if you keep at it – you’ll build your hair inventory up in no time with some unique styles in full fatpacks!  Get there early in the day – it locks down at 475, but fills fast!

FabFree: If you don't drink... How will your friends know you love them at 2AM?

Hey there Fabulouses!  Just chilling at the beach today with the essentials…  comfy summer wear, a drink and my dog.  What else does a girl need?

Falling For Fringe!

I don’t know what it is about fringes, but I am all about them lately and was so excited that Scandalize put these extraordinary Scandal Sandals out as a free group gift in FATPACK!  They are celebrating their second anniversary in Second Life with this special gift, and it looks like for a limited time until June 24th, the group is FREE TO JOIN.  It is normally 100L to join, and there are a ton of group gifts to pick up!

Some recently blogged Scandalize group gifts that are still available:

To Top It Off

The Blade Ribbed Crop Top you see me wearing is another one of the free gifts that you might pick up in the red gift heart at the Addams mainstore or at SLB15.  I clicked the heart at the mainstore and this was my prize!  Nevi showed you the awesome dress she got yesterday [HERE]

Cookies For Breakfast

Cookies For Breakfast

Good morning FabFree!  Who on earth said that cookies are not good for breakfast?  Probably someone’s mom…  In fact, I probably tell my own kids not to eat cookies for breakfast, but….  *I* eat cookies for breakfast sometimes…  sue me. 😀

Good Morning At Midnight

This morning you’ll see me wearing the satiny smooth Kristen Dress (which could also double as lingerie) that is available as a rotating free prize at Aleutia.  For a 20L group join – you’ll find an open MM board and a group MM board as well as five group lucky chairs.  I won this in the FREE open midnight mania board, but it is available in the other board and chairs at times as well too.

Kristen is fitted specifically for Maitreya (although may work with other bodies – I haven’t tried) and includes a 15 colour option texture change HUD for both the top and skirt.

ps.  The cute little heart-shaped, double layer cream filled cookie comes with a holding animation and is available for Pocket Gacha at 55L per play at ChicChica.  Go on, and have it for breakfast…  I won’t tell.

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 ~

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.

Club Wear in Two Stops and 3 Linden

Garage

Love was mentioning how she moved from the big city to a small town when she was young and brave. I grew up on a farm… it didn’t even qualify as a small town… and when I went off to college, I moved away to the city. I remember going to clubs and bars for the first time just to play pool because back home, the closest town nearest me didn’t allow women into the pool hall (yes it was that old fashioned!). So when I got to the city I was so excited to go and just play pool at all the hang out joints! I’d dress up for a night on the town and head out, buy a diet pepsi and play pool. It was great fun!

The perfect outfit.

This outfit I’ve put together is perfect for club wear and will only cost you 3 Linden total and a little bit of hunting time. You’ll also only have to make 2 stops to get the dress, shoes, and hair!

First, make a pit stop at Barbed Wire Kisses. They are participating in two great hunts right now. For 1L as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt, you can hunt down a lolly pop and pick up my cute little two piece outfit. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya & Isis

While you’re at Barbed Wire Kisses, be sure to hunt down the globe for the World Tour Hunt and buy it for 2L. You’ll get the shoes in the picture above that are almost a perfect match for the Cute and Curvy outfit! These heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

New Hair too!

Take a last stop to Desmonia and you’ll be all set. The hair I’m wearing in the picture comes in a full fatpack of colors and currently the group is free to join. But HURRY! This is a limited time offer and the group is set to go back to a join fee any time now. You don’t want to miss out!
