Rebel Rebel, put on your dress

Rebel Rebel

Hello Fab Free’ers!  I am really excited to share with you the first of hopefully many fantastic freebies.  I’ve read the FabFree blog daily for years and it’s a real honour to have been accepted as a FabFree blogger.  I have always loved hunting down freebies, cheapies and bargains, and will enjoy it even more now that I can share my finds with you all!

Talk to me!

Feel free to contact me if you want any more details on something I post, or just to chat, or to tell me about some awesome freebies, cheapies or bargains you think I need to know about!

Redheads should never wear green

Who says?  Honestly, this is one of those silly rules I grew up hearing.  Redheads must steer clear of wearing anything green.  Pfft.  Sometimes rules are just meant to be broken, and this is definitely one of them, and that is why Zsa is a proud to be a rebel!

Beautiful simplicity

Even though I disagree with the redhead/green rule, I am a big believer in the old adage that less is more, and this beautiful gown, one of the newest group gifts from Hilly Haalan, demonstrates this perfectly – so simple, so classy.  Hilly’s group gifts are always such a treat.  Nadia is a beautifully flowing gown that gives you an amazing silhouette, reminiscent of the movie stars of the 40’s.  As she often does, Hilly has generously given us not just one colour but a whole hud full – 15 colours in fact.  So, in effect, 15 beautiful gowns for free!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Standard Large & Standard Small (alpha included)

Who doesn’t love a good little black dress?  And if the dress is super hot and kinda 90’s (in a good way), then you really can’t say no!

LBD

My zippered and ribbed pencil dress, complete with shoulder cutouts, is courtesy of Rosary.  This month’s Group Gift is my idea of laid back glam, complete with an HUD to change the colour of the dress.  To get your very own copy, join the Rosary group for 200 Lindens.  They are really on the ball with their monthly gifts, so it’s a good group to stay in (there are also two other gifts out right now)!  Well, what are you waiting for?  Goooo!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Heel, Boy!

Oh, right.  The shoes.  Yes, these insane stilettos can also be yours for FREE!  I love love looooove shoes by Pure Poison, and their store is chockablock with free gifts (hint: go look at the gachas…) – Join the group for 0L, and these hot stilettos are all yours.  The Alaina sandals are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  Yay!

You better work!

Splashing Around at the Beach

Splashing Around at the Beach

Hello FabFree!

Today I decided I need a beach day, so I decided to head over to Adele, in my new bathing suit that I picked up from Mermaid Cove and try out the texture change between dry and wet. Well, as I am exploring Salt from Salt and Pepper comes into group chat and says they have a new Group Gift out! Turns out it’s the cover-up for my new bathing suit, so I had to share it all with you!

The in-world Salt and Pepper group is $300L to join, but past gifts are also available in-store, you can see some past gift coverage {here}. The group gift and bathing suit react to SL water! When you walk into water or interact with other S&P Aquasense items, the texture will change to mermaid! I completely admit, I may have squealed a little when I first got into the water and my entire suit changed, but we won’t talk about that… Giggles. It’s like you have two-in-one! The HUD also offers your cover-up or suit to be mermaid or dry all the time. As well as allowing you to change the amount of seconds it takes for your outfit to dry, after entering the water and activating the interactive function!

The Sierra group gift is located inside the Salt and Pepper main store, on a huge billboard/poster, you can’t miss it! Just don’t forget to wear your group tag!!

Salt and Pepper- Sierra Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink- Hourglass

Hello Fab Free!

I hope everyone is doing fantastic today and their weekend has gone well! I have come down with a nasty case of the stomach flu and have been MIA pretty much since Thursday evening. Just have to chug through it and keep moving, even if you feel like crud! Haha. Any who how about we talk about group gifts? I am searching flickr and an ad by Elven Elder catches my eye and I figure what the heck let’s try it! The in-world group is $100L to join and after surfing their photostream for a bit, it seems they put out a new Group Gift, every month.

This dress is a beauty, she comes in varying sizes and comes with the option of a panty on/off HUD. The color blue used on the skirt is just gorgeous, that’s why I choice to give it a try! Blue is my favorite color after all and of course pink. The top as a rose gold sorta tint to it, so hey the best of both worlds there! The gift is located in the Elven Elder store and is right behind the front desk, while wearing your group tag, click the Group Gift sign and it will be delivered directly to you.

Elven Elder Florentine Iris Sizing:

  • Maitreya

Scandalized Queen

Sacandalized Queen

Happy Hump Day FabFree!

Today, I have a cute new Group Gift from Scandalize. It is a sexy little Jersey Dress that has Queen on the back! It is super adorable, I myself typically ignore these kinda gifts, because I am not one for match-y stuff, but I am sure glad I tried this on! The front has some strategically placed tears in the fabric that give it that optimum level of sexy. That’s not all though, it keeps you covered while still making you feel sexy, the back is cute short but not so short that everything is hanging out. You just see a little peak of cheeks! The dress comes with built in panties too, for extra coverage in the front!

The Scandalize in-world group is $100L to join, but completely worth it! They are always releasing new gifts and the quality is outstanding. This group gift comes with a color HUD, containing 20 different colors!! The HUD gives you the ability to change not only the dress color, but also the lettering on the back. There is also a color HUD for the “string” which is the piece covering the lady bits in the front.

The men’s version can be found at a neighboring store on the Scandalize main store SIM called Kenn.

  • Maitreya

Let’s Go Fly A Kite

Let's Go Fly A Kite

When you send it flying up there
All at once you’re lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze
Over houses and trees
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

Send It Soaring

Yep.  I went Mary Poppins on you with my lyrics there.  I’m just hanging out at the beach, trying to put on a horrible cockney accent while singing away.  I’ll be talking with a really bad accent all day in order to celebrate England’s win in the World Cup today. I’ll also celebrate by showing you some fantastic freebies – my bathing suit and shades are completely FREE when you join the Gimme Gacha group and take a wander around Gachaland.  They’re being generous as usual and have a whole host of gifts out.  The bathing suit by Look at Me is keeping me stylish in this appealing sunset-peach shade which is a Maitreya Lara exclusive, and the sunglasses by BoWillow, excitingly, have frames that are constantly changing colour, which is actually super fun.  Grab your own (and loads of other free gifties) by visiting Gachaland!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go up the apples and pears to research some Cockney rhyming slang

Beautiful Darkness

Beautiful Darkness

Hello Fabulous Readers!

I took a trip to Scandalize this morning to see if the new scandals, Love talked about [here], were still available and they are!

While browsing the store I found the weekly special! The weekly special is this sexy dress called Maya, each pack comes with three different versions- plain/color, glitter and a print of some sort. The special sale price is $75L, I bought a few colors for myself. What can I say, I have a slight shopping addiction, especially for astounding creators at amazing deals! This dress is just too alluring to pass up!

Scandalize- Maya Dress Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza- Freya & Isis
  • Slink- Hourglass

Accessories! Can’t live with them or without them, my inventory goes for days! While at SLB15, I found Lapointe & BastChild and their free gift is this cute zodiac bangle. I adore it, but I am also a zodiac fanatic, so this little treasure, is right up my alley. The bangle comes with a few color options for the beads and all the zodiac symbols in gold and silver.

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 ~
