Who Run The World?

Who Run The World?

On days when one must rule the world, one must have the best outfit possible.  One must find it within oneself to crush all obstacles under one’s well-heeled feet.  My friends, I have found just such an outfit – and I have found it for free.  Rejoice!

Stomp On It

The Summer Loving hunt is well underway, and I found this amazing offering from Vanilla Bae!  When I wore it out I felt as though I could take on the entire world.  Plus the little grommet openings allowed for plenty of air ventilation!  (BAHAHA, couldn’t help myself) But seriously folks, it’s really eye-catching isn’t it?  This free hunt prize comes in 3 different colours (Rose, Cream and the Smoky colour I’ve got on).  You can grab your own by hunting for the little beach ball in the main store and voilà:  The world is your oyster!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

To all my peeps who stomp through life – I salute you!

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 ~

Lazy in Lingerie

Lazy in Lingerie

It’s a lazy day.  So lazy, in fact that I’m just in my skivvies lolling about on the couch.  Do you have those days?  Sometimes they’re the kind of day that calls for fancy lingerie and high heels – just to please yourself and nobody else!

Skimpy Skivvies

I found this lovely lingerie set from FurtaCor hiding in my notices.   If you join the FurtaCor group for 50L, and nip into the group notices, you will find the latest group gift hanging out there for you.  It comes in three different colours – red, blue and black, and comes with appliers for Maitreya and Belleza as well as an Omega applier.  I like the shiny look of the fabric!  Oh, and by the way it’s a bit revealing from the other side, if you catch my drift!

Flowery Feet

Scandalize has come out with a gift for an upcoming event called Vanity.  If you join the group HERE for free, and check in the notices you will get these chunky platform heels in the cheery flowery design you see in the photo.  I love them for spring and summer – they really make an outfit!  They come sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.

Enjoy your lazy day!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Ali & Ali Designs

Ali & Ali Exterior
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry I’ve been so absent as of late. I’m gearing up for a move in RL and it is taking not only my focus but most of my energy. I cannot wait to be settled and back into a normal routine. I hate being away, I miss you guys! That said I did manage a little bit of time to share with you the designer of the week, Ali & Ali Designs.

As most of you probably know, Ali & Ali is a hair shop that has been part of the Second Life experience for quite a while. What you might not know is that Ali & Ali also has a small selection of clothing, shoes, and even business scripts! There’s really a lot to see and shop for at Ali & Ali. At the main entrance you’ll notice there’s even a convenient teleport board with quite a few store “departments” that you can teleport to for convenient shopping. Still, the main Attraction at Ali & Ali is the hair. There are male styles as well as the female styles, there are also beards. Ali & Ali also caters nicely to the Classic Avatars in that they still offer non-mesh styles along with mesh, and they have a set of free tattoo layer hair bases available on the information desk just inside the entrance.

Ali & Ali Front Desk
The Ali & Ali information desk is really the hub of the store. Here you’ll find all the information you need about anything and everything Ali & Ali related. There are also helpful fairies around the store that you can click for help and additional information. Also at the desk are the current free Ali & Ali group gifts. There is one for the gentlemen as well as the ladies. The Ali & Ali group is free to join at this time. I added a close up of the teleport board so you can get a better look at all Ali & Ali has to offer.Ali & Ali Lucky Gifts

Speaking of offers, just to the left of the desk you’ll find the exclusive Ali & Ali male and female gifts for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Finally, as you shop through the multiple floors of the Ali & Ali store, you’ll see the occasional lucky letter chair and a few mini mania type boards. I put up some examples of what to look for, however the boards and chair shown are not the only ones. Don’t forget, there are male prizes as well as female ones. Also I noticed that at least a few of the boards did not seem to require a group to participate. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

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

Candy Buttons

Candy Buttons

There will be days when you want to give up. There will be days where you want to stay in bed and hide.  And then, there will be days when the world tastes sweet, sweet as those little sugar dots you used to buy back in the day. I think they were called Candy Buttons.  You know – the little dots on white paper that you could peel off and eat?  I used to love those things, mostly because they were hard to find.  I found a dress, however, that reminds me of all the sweet treats and happy days of our youths!

Mini Hunt Alert!

How much do you love this sweet polka dot dress from Tatiko?  I absolutely adore the mesh panels on the sides, and of course the multicoloured polka dots that remind me of Candy Buttons.  I got the dress for 1L instore at Tatiko, as they’re having a mini hunt for spring!  Walk around the store looking for the potted plants (there are 5 of them) and buy the ones that you love for 1L.  There’s a poster up above the front desk showing what each one contains so you can shop around a bit!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

You Can Never Have too Much Hair

Beusy currently have the hairstyle I’m showing off as a free group gift!  The “Lilac” hairstyle features two short braids that I think will come in super handy during the warm summer weather I’m sure will make an appearance soon!  This hairstyle features loads of natural colour options, as well as the possibility of removing the bangs and adding some wisps of hair.  You can grab your own by joining the group for free!  Yay!

I think I deserve a treat after all this writing!

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.

Stick With Me

Stick With Me

There is nothing I love more than stickers.  I’ve got piles of them – cats, hearts, diamonds, even the odd cactus or two.  There’s something about them that awakens something from my youth.  The dress I’m wearing today brings me to that same sticker happy place!

Sticker Collection Vibes

This super adorable dress today is a group gift at Quinnty’s.  You can pick up your own (which comes with several absolutely smashing textures that can be changed via HUD) by joining the group for 50 Lindens.  Pay the vendor 1L, which will then be returned to you promptly, along with this fab dress.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS – L With an Alpha Layer

Add this dress to your collection, just like all those stickers!

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!
