Baby’s in Black

FabFree: Baby's in Black

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  This fine Saturday, I come to you all dressed in black with news about a free group gift at Meva that is fitted exclusively for Maitreya Lara.

Trudi Meet Joan

When you join the inworld group at Meva, which will set you back 100L…  You gain access to a handful of free group gifts including the new group gift for September which includes the Joan Jacket and Trudi Skirt in black.  As earlier mentioned, these two items are fitted just for Maitreya.  These two items look pretty sweet together, but I’m sure they would look adorable paired up as separate items too.

Enjoy!

‘Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

'Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

You guys, the gifts that all of the designers have put out for the 6th anniversary of Cosmopolitan are really nice! I’ve been really pleased with everything and had a hard time deciding what to wear first. There is an easel when you first go through the doors with a group joiner so you can join the free “!!Cosmopolitan Club and Lounge!!” group. I joined the group and was able to pick up a gift from most of the designers, all for free. Here’s a little play by play of what I put together:

Rings

I have to start with the gift from Meva. I was shocked when I unpacked these rings. Not only do I already have these rings in silver and love them, but I paid for them. And now you can get them as a free gift! The free gift includes the rings in gold for each hand, plus a HUD that allows you to hide and show them.

Hair

The hair that I’m wearing is the free gift from Limerence. It’s a super cute little updo with a braid wrapped around. It comes in a nice variety of fun colors.

Top

I love a cute little corset top and this one is lovely. It is the free gift from Tachinni. It comes in a pretty, pale pink shade and has laces down the back that can be adjusted with an included HUD – you can change the colors of the laces and make them longer or shorter. It includes 4 mesh sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Isis.

 

All 3 of these gifts can be picked up at Cosmopolitan. There’s already been a bit of Cosmopolitan coverage on FabFree, specifically here, here, here, and here. Enjoy!

Yeah I’m Free, Free Fallin’

Yeah I'm Free, Free Fallin'

Have you heard? There is a mid-summer hunt at Witchwood! Of course you’ve heard, Love blogged about it here…but bear with me while I gush momentarily anyway. Witchwood is the home of Oubliette and Petite Mort, aka two of my very favorite stores on the grid. When I first saw the notice about the hunt I may have audibly squeeee’d, or at the very least I IMed “squeee.” True story.

The hunt lasts through the end of the month. There’s a cute little tote that you can grab at the landing point for free and then 6 seashells hidden with prizes costing 10L each. Oh and did I mention that there are hints and the shells aren’t very hard to find? Here’s the vendor ad again for easy reference:

Witchwood-MidSummer Hunt

Today I’m showing three of the prizes. We’re going right down the middle row with numbers 2, 3, and 4. The tee and skirt each come sized for:

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

The shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. Happy hunting! I might see you there, I still need to go back and hit up the 50% off sale.

Stylin’, Wilin’, Livin’ It Up In The City

Stylin', Wilin', Livin' It Up In The City

Do I look mean in this picture? I swear I’m a nice person, my avatar just likes to make mean faces sometimes. She probably broke those windows when I wasn’t looking too. What a rebel. But she sure dresses cute!

Ricielli Rocks My World

There are bunches of promos on the marketplace from Ricielli. For real, so many. I saw a couple of things for 1L, and lots of others for a bit more but still deeply discounted. The top that I’m wearing includes two colors and is 10L. It comes in 5 standard sizes from L to XXS and I had no problem fitting it without even needing any alpha cuts. It also shows off some killer side boob. My hot boots were a bargain at only 15L.

Boots Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Can’t Forget The Hair

This hair is the newest group gift from Clawtooth. You just need to join the group for free and go to Clawtooth to pick up this super cute long bob in the Essentials color pack.

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 ~

These Gifts Speak for Themselves

Rising_001

I tried to think of something funny and clever to say but in the end I had writer’s block so this gift will have to speak for itself. Thankfully, it does well, with these great leggings, embellished with crosses, and the skin tight corset that shows off… well so much I had to get strategic hair to cover up… you know. Parts.

You can pick this gift up at Waffles as part of the Darkness Inside Hunt. It’s actually two separate gifts… the leggings come in one hunt box for 1L and the corset comes in a separate hunt box for 25L so you can get the entire look for just 26L total.

Corset sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Fine & Curvy
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Legging Sizes Available:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Looking For the Land of Rainbows

Dappled Sunlight

Happy Middle of the Week, Fabulous Readers!  I’m looking forward to the upcoming three day weekend, and I sure hope you have some extra time off as well.  Today, the pupster and I traveled to the Land of Rainbows, and sought out colorful Easter eggs, which are hidden throughout the sim.  There are gifts for both men and women in this hunt, and they are all completely free!

Sweet Spring Mini

One of the eggs in the Land of Rainbows Easter Egg hunt contained this adorable Iris Dress, which is a free gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  Featuring a high neckline secured with thin straps, a decorative waistband, and a dramatically low back, this pretty floral frock is perfect for the warm spring days to come.  I love the added touch of the dangling straps down my back.  Although there were no sizes for classic avatars, this fresh little number fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  Best of all, when you locate the Easter egg from Wicca’s Wardrobe, you can add Iris to your spring wardrobe for free!  The hunt runs until April 6th, so you still have plenty of time to hit the trail.

Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

I know a certain someone who is looking for some quality men’s outfits to blog, so I’d better run and give him a chance to do some egg hunting of his own.  Until next time, happy shopping hunting!

All Dressed Up

Dress Me Up

Hello Fabulous Readers! This morning, Ripley came up to me with a gleam in his eye and his tracking harness dangling from his mouth.  With February being so short, I had almost forgotten it is the beginning of March already.  This was the pupster’s way of reminding me that some new hunts have rolled around.  I fastened all the buckles, clipped on his leash, and with the promise of Ripley snacks for a job well done, we hit the trail of the Dress Her Up Hunt.  The theme of this 2L hunt is anything that dresses up your avi or your home, and the object you are looking for is a plum colored, formal dress.

Only Two Lindens?  Yes, Please!

Our first stop was Shae’s Designs where we picked up the ebony-colored Ginger dress.  With three quarter length sleeves, a scooped neckline, and a realistic texture in the fabric, this frock can take you from a casual afternoon to a date night, depending on the accessories you pair with it.  Ginger leaves your shoulders mostly bare, and dips low in the back.  It is designed exclusively for mesh bodies and will fit Slink Hourglass and Physique, as well as Maitreya.  For just 2L, I was able to add a little black dress to my inventory.  Every girl needs a little black dress (or two, or three…).  The hunt runs through March 31st, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing of your own.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

To celebrate our find, Ripley and I headed over to the Witchwood sim, where he happily gobbled up his reward, and I soaked up some nature.  Now we are off to seek out our next hunt gift.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

“Bee” Beautiful

Flowers and the Bees_002

“Be” Beautiful!

I love the message on the group gift I found for you today! “Be your own kind of beautiful” is just the kind of message we all need to hear now and then as a lovely reminder 🙂

I picked up this pretty dress at GeMyles as a Fitmesh Fantatics Group Gift. You just need to be a member of the Fitmesh Fantatics Group (the group is free to join) and stop by the GeMyles main-store to nab up this pretty dress for free! It comes in fitmesh sizes XS – XL.

Flowers and the Bees_001

More “Bees” please!

Not only are we “Being” beautiful but I have a “bee” and flower gift to show off that is simply stunning! I showed you the latest Meva group gift in my post here and mentioned that there were 9 total group gifts out to be had. I wanted to show off some of the others and decided that this beautiful bento ring set was perfect with my outfit!

These rings are made to fit bento Maitreya hands and you get a Daisy and a Bee for your right and left hands. The group is 100L to join, but remember, there are currently 9 group gifts out to be had for your join fee!

The Wind at My Back

The Wind at My Back

There’s a cool breeze on the air as summer starts fading here at the end of August and I’m ready for September days… but I plan to enjoy these last warm breezes with some summer dresses. And I’m thrilled with the gifts that I’m finding that are letting me do just that.

A special dress

Meva has out a new group gift dress for us ladies to add to their collection of group gifts in the group gift section. The dress is Maitreya fit only but there are two colors in the package… the cream I am showing you as well as a charcoal color. The group is 100L to join, but currently there are 9 past group gifts you can pick up. So if you are new to Meva, that’s a nice little group of gifts to pick up for your group gift fee.

New hair

I stopped by the Gacha Garden as I got a notice that there are currently 61 free gifts to be had at the event! I went right away to check it out and was thrilled with the loot I came away with. I couldn’t wait to show you my favorites.

I have three just in this post, including this beautiful fatpack of hair called Eevee by Analog Dog. Find the Analog Dog gacha machine and pick up your gift by clicking the little bag. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group tag, but the group is free to join, making the fatpack of hair an absolutely free gift!

Maya and Teeth

An affair… with skin!

Glam Affair has a free face applier as their gift at the Gacha Garden! I was so excited to see this beautiful applier called “Maya” as their gift! It’s in the American skin tone with lovely freckles and a pretty mouth shade. It’s perfect for that girl next door look but also lovely enough for a glamorous outfit too. And since it too is a Gimme Gacha gift, it’s FREE!

She’s got teeth!

Cae’s gift had me “hooked” from the moment I unpacked it! I love their Sharkteeth necklace and earrings set! The set even includes a color change hud so you can choose between silver, brass, or gold! And like the other Gimme Gacha gifts, it’s free! 😀
