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 ~

LoordesBootysBeautyWash
Well hello there FabFree and happy Saturday! Today I am showing off a couple 10L fabulous finds at The Wash’s Spring Is In The Air Cart Sale!

First Stop!

Your first stop is to the Loordes of London display where you’ll find these fabulous shirt/vest combinations called The Exeter in five different colours priced at…  You got it – 10L each!  I think this design could be worn as a dress or a shirt depending on your taste.  I decided to apply a pair of jeans from my inventory (free group gift at Beautiful Dirty Rich) that I have previously shown on FabFree.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Second Stop!

Zoom in on my glossy lips, and you’ll see  the Charade Lipstick that I found at The display of Booty’s Beauty!  For just 10L you’ll have a HUD that includes nine super glossy lip options and even thick black eyeliner (not shown on my avatar) specifically for the Catwa mesh heads.  Booty’s Beauty has a ton of makeup appliers for different heads on their display, so if you aren’t wearing a Catwa, pop in and see what they have for yours!

That’s it from me for now, I’ll be back!

It’s beach weather somewhere!

Is it beach season yet_001

It’s beach weather somewhere right? And there are always beaches you can visit in Second Life when winter is getting you down! Thanks to a FabFree reader tip from Crimson, now you can have 12 free swimsuits to take to the beach with you! Read on to find out how!

If you go to Scandalize, you already know that joining the group for 100L will score you some great gifts like Aline showed you {here} and Love showed you {here}. In fact there’s a huge wall of group gifts to be had for that one small fee…

… but right now there is also an in-store Watermelon Hunt going on, no group required! It’s totally free! There are 12 little watermelons hidden around Scandalize and each one contains one of the swimsuits you see me wearing above, each watermelon is just holding one in a different color. You find the Watermelon and buy it for 0L and the swimsuit is yours, free!

While I was there I picked up a suit in grey, white (shown), aqua, and a pretty black and white zebra print. Of course there were eight more out there that I didn’t find because I got lazy and stopped looking ;P

But a girl can never have too many swimsuits, seriously!

Take a Chill Pill

Chill Pill_001

Special Reminder!

In case you’ve forgotten, Wasabi Pills is having a 60 – 80% off hair sale on older hair styles. Love first told us the big news in December in her post She’s a Snowflake Sweetie. I wanted to remind you before the sale is over!

Once you get to the store, just take the teleport upstairs to a wide selection of both rigged and unrigged hair styles to choose from. I picked up the “Betty” hairstyle in the picture above in a pack of reds for just 50L. I could have picked up a full fatpack of colors for just 350L if I had wanted to! For a gorgeous style like this, you can’t even tell it’s an “older style”!

I’m not sure how much longer this sale will last. So don’t wait! Get to Wasabi Pills TODAY and shop to your heart’s content!

From hair… to dress.

I am loving the Womenstuff Hunt as you might have guessed, as I’ve already featured some of the gifts I’ve found in posts {here}, {here}, and {here}. Today I wanted to show off a pretty formal cocktail dress that I picked up for free while I was out with my usual hunting date. He picked this one up ahead of time, and alerted me to the fact that it was a beauty that I shouldn’t pass up! Just hunt down that little red t-shirt icon at S&B main-store!

We have a date for later where I plan to put this free dress from S&B to good use! Included with this dress is a color change hud and multiple sizes for your mesh body needs.

Dress colors included:

  • Red and Black (shown)
  • Blue and Black
  • Pink and Black
  • Purple and Black
  • Moss and Black
  • Charcoal and Black

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL

  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya

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

Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

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

Glitter and Pearls

Mouthy_001

Set the mood…

Set the tone… set the mood… glitter and jewels and pearls and all those things that make you feel sexy… are part of the Sex Up Your Party Hunt. I have two items to share with you that will put you in the mood for a party yourself… I know they made me feel sexy wearing them.

Glitter lips.

Kodiak is the 2nd stop on this hunt but the first 2L prize I want to mention as I love these glittery, Galaxy Moon lipstick make up applier that comes in an omega applier, suitable for most mesh heads. Just look for that naughty pink item and buy it for 2L and this lip applier is all yours.

Noms.

The first stop on the hunt was at Sour Pickles, where I picked up my Nom Nom Pearls. These beautiful black pearls are perfect for keeping your mouth busy so it doesn’t run away with you at the party! I only had to do a little editing to get these to fit my mesh head just perfectly. It was no trouble at all! These too only required a little hunting time and 2L to get the prize.

The animal inside.

Embrace_001

“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” ~ Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

The first full moon of 2018…

… was January 2nd. And I think it brought out the animal in me. Not necessarily in a bad way… but in a “I’m ready to roar into 2018” way. And when my hunting buddy told me he’d been scouting out the Sex Up Your Party Hunt, I was a bit skeptical as I heard the name of the hunt. And more skeptical when I heard what the hunt icon was that he was looking for (yes it’s very naughty!).

But if you hunt down the little pink… ahem… icon… at Artic Storm, pay just 2L for it… you’ll be rewarded with this leopard print lingerie (sexy boots included) that is sure to bring the animal out in you too. And maybe that full moon wasn’t such a bad thing after all.

Mesh bodies supported:

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

Too Many Kisses

Too Many Kisses
Who ever said that one can never have enough kisses has clearly not met my dog…

Hey there Fabulous readers!  This evening I am bringing you news of three free and very fabulous Women Only Hunt prizes.  Remember that you have until the end of the month to collect all of these prizes and the hunt icon you are looking for is a white snowflake.  You can find hints on their official blog.

Covering My Booty…  Barely

American Bazaar’s free Women Only Hunt Prize is the Snow Dress which is a long sleeved very short (could pass for a long sweater top!), draped turtleneck thick knit sweater dress in white.  It comes in several mesh body fits and will be a welcome addition to any woman’s winter wardrobe!  The photo below is a closer up shot of the excellent texturing, and also a better shot of the Wynter Bento Rings by Slipper that are an exclusive item at The Frozen Fair.  These are not a free item… but worth a mention because they are so pretty and come with plenty of metal and stone options.

Dress Sizes Included:

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

Too Many Kisses 2

Boots To Keep Your Legs Warm

Your teeny sweater dress surely won’t be keeping your legs warm, so you better grab these white wool thigh high boots at Have Unequal to keep your legs warm!  Why not?  They are really a great pair of boots, and…  they are free for the WOH!

Boot Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis

This Sweet Puppy Pose

Yes!  This sweet puppy pose is a free Women Only Hunt prize too and you can find it at Spotcat!  It’s Bento, and wearable so that you don’t need to be on a sim that allows rezzing.
