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 ~

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.

If you haven’t… you should…

Sitting Pretty_001

If you haven’t… you should…

If you haven’t checked the FabFree group gift list lately you should. Just click [Here], or on the icon along the right side of the blog, and you’ll find a long list of stores offering amazing free gifts exclusively to FabFree group members. I was browsing the listing and happened upon the Satus Inc. FabFree gift and decided I really wanted to pick it up!

I teleported over to Satus Inc. and picked up this Rye Tied Pink shirt. It’s a lovely knit fabric with side splits and the beautiful detail of ties on the sides to keep the fabric together. It comes in several handy mesh body sizes. As always, Fabfree gifts are free with your Fabfree group tag.

Shirt Sizes included:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something to match.

I needed a skirt to match and so I hopped over to Atik where I saw that the April group gift, free to group members (the group is free to join) was a great compliment to my top! It’s a cute miniskirt with a soft floral pattern, perfect for the coming spring air that I keep hoping for!

Skirt sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Touch of Spring

A Vision in Pink_001

New Month, New Lucky Boards!

I love stopping by Vision at the beginning of the month and picking up my 100L credit with my VIP group. (That group is 250L to join… a one-time fee.) Usually I also take some time to browse the lucky letter boards. In the past, those boards have been exclusive to the VIP group which you have to pay to join, but this month … hurry because I’m not sure how long this will last… the four new lucky letter boards are open to the free to join regular Vision Store group as well! So if your letter pops up on the boards, you can get the items for free!

I got really lucky this month because my letter came up on two of the boards and I was able to snag the matching shade skirt and shade top in pink! 😀

Available sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Vision in Pink_002

A touch of spring

It’s been a chilly start to April in my neck of the woods, but the birds are still singing their songs and this pretty free gift from Maxi Gossamer has me thinking of spring! The group is free to join, meaning that this gift will only cost you a group space. You’ll get the necklace in two different lengths… short (shown) and long. It is also texture change and you can change the color of the bird eggs in the nest. How cute!

I got a notice that Nyne put out a fresh group gift and I headed to the store to check it out! My new Nissa hair is free with your free to join Nyne group tag and comes with a hud to fully texture change both the color of the hair as well as the bow! Color this hair to your hearts content and get it for free!

Checking out Sexy!

I was checking out the FabFree Group Gift Listing and saw the gift for Sexy Princess and thought it would be perfect to go with my new hair! This sexy mini dress has a floral print and criss cross front and comes in several mesh sizes. As always, the Fabfree group is free to join, so the gift was free to take home!

And while I was there…

While I was at Sexy Princess, I couldn’t help but notice the wall of gifts! I picked up this second sexy number that is a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift. The Fitmesh Fantatics group is free to join, so you can pick up this group free as well. You might remember that Kat blogged this dress in turquoise [here] so if you liked this dress and want to add it to your wardrobe in red, now is your chance!

Dress Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus

One more stop!

I hadn’t been by Moondance Boutique in a while, and I love their jewelry, (it always includes such terrific color change huds). I was pleasantly surprised to see new group gifts out and available and I quickly picked up the free SL frees and Offers group gift. This Tracey jewelry set includes the necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings in the picture. You can zoom in on the flickr for a close up! You’ll get lots of gemstone choices (the gemstones change colors separately) plus several metal finishes to choose from. Enjoy this gift free!

Drama, Drama, Drama!

Love Me Lingerie_001

Drama!

Drama, drama, drama! That’s what these amazing backdrops from Kraftwork make me think of! I got them as a group gift by stopping by the store. There are currently two set out and each has a hud to change it to three different colors. One includes this chair and a posing stand! They even have the lights that filter through.

These are great if you are a second life photographer or just want to snap some photos. The Kraftwork group is a mere 25L to join and you can pick up these great backdrops yourself!

A little love…

I have a little love left over from February! I stopped by Elegance Boutique and discovered that they had out a lovely lingerie set for free with your free group join. It’s two pieces with the undies and the top and has cute details like the heart pasties. It comes in several mesh body sizes. I’m showing off the Maitreya size.

Glance Back

Snapshot_001

Since joining Vision‘s free group, I’ve been able to pick up several beautiful group gifts. The latest gift is no exception. This free dress (it could easily also pass for lingerie) is pretty in pink with a small print floral design on it and is very sexy. Since the group is free to join, the gift is free to you. Don’t get mixed up with the VIP group which costs to join. You just need the regular free store group to pick up this gift.

Dress sizes available:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus
