As Stan reported a few days ago, The latest issue of L’Homme is out. With the Fifth anniversary issue comes a selection of gifts for the readers. To become a member of the free L’ Homme Reader’s group, simply tap the sign at any of the participating designers. Then help yourself to the gifts. Don’t forget to peruse the issue itself at L’Homme Magazine Second Life.

Brights and Bold

I had to help myself to this well tailored shirt from Meva as soon as I saw it. This is the ‘Marcus’ dress shirt and it is part of a set offered to the L’Homme readers. The shirt comes with a pair of matching pants. It’s called orange but I see it more as a sunshine yellow. It made me think of tropical vacations and margaritas in a sidewalk café. So that’s exactly where I’m headed off to.

A Trio For You

Sweet Spring

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a pretty spring frock with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

It’s Really One of Three

This cream colored dress is the April gift for members of the Meva Update Group, but it’s just *part* of it.  Tucked inside the package are two other versions, so you get not one, but three dresses.  The sleeveless design, high neckline and scooped back make the Meva Flowers Dress 2 suitable for many occasions from casual to more dressy.   It all depends on how you choose to accessorize.  The fabric features delicate white blossoms scattered across a pale peach background, which creates a lovely design.  If this print is not up your alley, there is also a similar pattern scattered over a darker gray background, and a version which features a bold, vibrant floral motif.  The frock is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop, activate the Meva Update Group tag and click the vendor.  There is a 100L join fee, but membership grants you access to 9 other gifts on the wall nearby.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Come Sail Away With Me

FabFree: Come Sail Away With Me

Hello there FabFree Readers! A few weeks ago [HERE], I showed you a group gift by Meva and I hope you loved it enough to join the group then (and stayed in it!!), but if you didn’t… perhaps this new addition to the group gift wall will entice you!

About Arabella

The latest group gift at Meva is the Arabella Pants & Jacket Set which is fitted exclusively for Maitreya.  It includes a texture change HUD that allows several colour options for the jacket / jacket collar and pants so you can choose yourself!  This group is 100L to join, but as I mentioned in my last post for Meva…  There are plenty of group gifts to pick up making it worth the fee!

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
