Angel Kisses

Angel Kisses

Sometimes you need to feel feminine and sexy and maybe a little…playful. If ya know what I mean 😉 So I figured I’d indulge myself with a couple of sweet freebies.

Earned My Wings

My cute little neon wings are perfect for this mood. These are “So Angel” wings from Alt3 and they are the free gift at the La Vie en Pose fair. The wings are unrigged so you can move them freely. Plus they are modify so you can make them just the right size. There are tons of free gifts at La Vie en Pose just as nifty as these. Just join the free group and help yourself. But you only have until July 25th to get over there so don’t delay.

Kissy Kissy

My sweet little top covered in lipstick kisses is also a free gift but you’ll need to go to the Anniversary round of XXX Original Event to pick it up. Nearly every vender has set out a free gift for you when you join the free XXX Original Event group. While you’re there take a look at all the exclusive items for sale from some of the Grid’s top designers. The Event is running until August 3rd.

Lake Day

Lake Day

I remember waiting so eagerly for summer. Three months stretching out on front of you with no school, no homework, no tests or teachers.  It was bliss! I’m definitely getting that summer-time bliss vibe from Graffitiwear’s latest Group Gift. At least, I’m certainly feelin’ all breezy and summery in it! I think it’s time to head for the lake.

July

This is the ‘July’ crop top from Graffitiwear for us VIP group members. There is a small one time 25 Linden fee to join the group but I think it’s well worth it. There are always fresh new gifts each month plus a group lucky board and Midnight Mania. Plus, the quality of the gifts is second to none. even this simple little crop top is wonderfully built and detailed and it comes with a HUD for one of six color patterns to choose from.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Short and Sweet

While I was over at Graffitiwear to check on the silky Group Gift, I was lucky enough to hear the Lucky Board call out “J”! How sweet is that? I hurried up stairs and slapped that board for this super cute shorty overalls outfit.

Cute and short

This is the V-day dungarees and tube top from Graffitiwear. And it’s free for group members when your letter comes up on the lucky board. The top and the overalls are separates but they share a HUD to choose from six colors and change the Valentines ‘patches’ on the front to one of six designs.

Such Sweet Hearts

Such Sweet Hearts

It’s February and the Grid is coming up hearts and roses and all things red and pink. I know Valentines day gets a bad rap but I kinda like it.

Sweet Hearts

My first Valentines gift this year is this sweet silky blouse from Graffitiwear. This is the ‘V-Day Satin Blouse’ and it’s the free gift for the Graffitiwear Vip group. I know when I see “VIP” I think “too expensive” but the Graffitiwear group is only a little one time fee of 25L. And you will get your linden’s worth with just this one gift! Plus, Graffitiwear is fantastic about sending out gifts and specials to the group. I highly recommend them. Just join up and check the Notices for the blouse or pop over to the mainstore!

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 ~

Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

It’s the first day of Spring, apparently.  Tell that to my boots and parka.  They still cling to me, desperately trying to fend off the cold North wind.  So, I hopped into SL and got down and dirty with some gardening.  And by down and dirty, I mean I pulled some plants out of my inventory and admired my hard work from a lovely bench in the sun with my cup of tea.  That’s my type of gardening!

A Whole Look…

I found a whole look today for free!  I stopped by Designer Circle: The Event and happily, it was their anniversary!  To celebrate, they have a ton of free gifts there.  I picked up the gift at Stormcrow Designs, and it contained a skirt, top, shoes, glasses and a bag.  I went with the top, skirt and shoes, and was quite pleased!  The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  Pretty, right?

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Isis (Skirt Only)
  • Freya (Skirt Only)
  • Venus (Skirt Only)

More Hair!

I also picked up free hair at Designer Circle, this sideswept braid by Posh Couture is really nice, and I love the height I’m getting off it!  It comes with an HUD of natural shades ranging from blonde all the way to black.  I think you can go either dressy or casual with this one and it will always look great.

Opalescence

My fave find at Designer Circle are the accessories I picked up at the Graffiwear booth.  I absolutely love opals – and this necklace/earring/ring combo is no exception.  I’ve always enjoyed the shiny, holographic nature of this stone, and I really love this set!  Grab it for free!

Ah, time for another cup of tea, I think!

Sunday Sunshine

One Step at a Time

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you found some time to relax and recharge.  To close the weekend, Ripley and I are popping in to share two free items with you.  Just like Love did in her post {HERE}, I am enjoying some virtual spring weather while it’s a bit nippy in my neck of the woods in RL.  I sure am glad I can get some warm weather somewhere!

Introducing…. Teanna

I am always super thrilled to see the free monthly gift from the Truth Hair VIP group, and when I  opened January’s present, I immediately put on the new style…….and haven’t taken it off since!  With long tresses that fall halfway down your back in two layers, and a sweet side braid that tucks behind your ear, this style is just so soft and pretty!  There is a full fat pack of color options (happy dance time!) and a versatile stylist HUD, which enables you to adjust whether or not you have a braid, what side the braid is on, and whether you wear your hair in front of, or behind your shoulders.  There are soooo many options, which really is a blessing depending on the type of collar your shirt has, and how curvy your avi is.  Although there a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks is so generous each month, and the group features an active, friendly chat community as well.  I’ve included a close up picture below so you can see just how amazing this style is!

Teanna Close Up

Who’s the Lucky One?

When I was at Graffitiwear to pick up the 5,000 member gift (you can read about it in my post {HERE}), Ripley wandered off to explore upstairs.  I followed him, and discovered a Lucky Dip, but sadly, when I attempted to win a mani-pedi, the Kraken tried to pull me into the container, and all I received was the Booby prize – an old, dead fish that not even Loki, my cat, was interested in.  It *was* kind of funny to see my avatar with legs wriggling around in the air, though.  Perhaps you’ll have better luck than I did.  On the wall behind the evil sea monster, there is a members-only Lucky Board featuring the Denim Safari Shorts I am wearing in my main photo.  Fortunately, my luck changed, and I happily left the store with my new prize.  Featuring a high waistline, dangling ties, golden accents, and white stitching, the free shorts had me ready for warm, sunny skies.  Also included in the package, a texture change HUD allowed me to select from six shades of denim.  With classic and mesh body variations, they are sure to fit most avatars.  In order to win the Safari Shorts, you need to be a Graffitiwear Group member, but it only costs 5L to join (plus you can pick up the group gift and tap the Midnight Mania board as well), so it’s a budget-friendly way to add some warm weather wear to your wardrobe.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a fantastic start to your work week tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Out For a Saturday Stroll

Saturday Stroll

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  One of the things Ripley and I love the most about the weekends is the lazy start to our day.  Having the time to leisurely sip my coffee, laze around in my PJs for a bit, and not have to rush out the door is such a wonderful treat!  There’s even time for an extended walk with my pal.  Now this is the way I like it!

We’re Off to Santa Fe…

Well, not really, but while out on our stroll around the grid, the pupster and I decided to visit Graffitiwear, and discovered this carefree Santa Fe Lace Dress, which is the free 5000 member group gift.  Since the group costs just 5L to join, and also opens up the members-only Midnight Mania and Lucky Boards, it was a budget-friendly decision to join.  My new, casual frock features long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and an asymmetrical hem.  The package also includes a texture change HUD with nine options.  It was hard to choose just one for my photo because I really liked them all!  The intricate lace forms vertical stripes that are just so detailed and pretty.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Venus

Here’s hoping you find some relaxing time for yourself over the weekend.  You deserve it! 🙂  Until my next post, happy shopping!
