Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

Pizza & Chill

Pizza & Chill

Hey, FabFree! Even though it’s Monday, I have the luxury to lounge around all day in whatever I please. Even better, it’s pizza night tonight! Just me and my yummy pizza in bed. I might start another binge on Netflix too… but what to watch? 

Pizza Pizza

This awesome slice of pizza is a free gift at Junk Food. To get the gift, you will just need to join the SL Frees & Offers group for free and then walk over to the gift cart at Junk Food. The SL Frees & Offers group has three free gifts out at this store, and there many, many free group gifts from Junk Food‘s free group as well. The pizza includes bento hold animations for female or male avatars. If pizza’s your thing, dig in!

My Little Friend

In case you haven’t all noticed, I love my pets and animals! Luckily, I made a new buddy to resume my pizza binge session tonight, and that’s the little Cy-Cat (a play on “cyclopes”), which you can get as a free group gift at Tardfish. He’s so cute, and he flips around your head, rolls around on his back and so on. I love this little guy. He’s a bit weird but so am I. The Tardfish group is free to join, and they have many other great gifts out as well. 

That’s it for now, FabFree! I’m off to enjoy some Netflix now so until next time, have a great one!

Hey gang!

I’ve got a Caroline style post for you today, with a whole list of goodies!  😀

Let’s not beat around the bush shall we?  (where exactly does that expression come from?  Beating around a bush to… chase something out?  idk!  lol)

Get this look for 6L!  Yes You Heard Right!

My cute top is a 1L gift from Bold Llama for the Around the Grid Hunt.  If you do not want to hunt, you can purchase it for 25L at the sign.  Its got a lotus on it which I love.  It fits:

Extra Goodies in the Photo

The super sweet neon popsicles behind me are from our very own Fab Free Designer, NinaX.  The red and yellow color is free in the Summer Nights Hunt (7.24 to 8.14), but the other colors are also a steal at only 15L each!  I grabbed them all, just cause I couldn’t decide!  Sooo cute!

My little yummy hand held popsicle and my little panda friend (who is sooo much enjoying his slushie!) are both from The Epiphany.  The popsicle is from Broken Arrows for a 50L pull and the Panda is from Stoic for 75L a pull.  Such a fun shoot!  I’ve got a close up below so you can get a better look at things.

So, just sitting here with my buddy Hachi musing about this adorbs summer dress that I found for only 5L on market.  Yup, it’s true!  Aria has a bunch of items on Market for only 5L, but its just today and tomorrow (the 13th and 14th) so ya gotta hurry on this one!  Everything was so cute I didn’t know what to pick to blog for y’all, but this dress felt so beachy and Hawaiian, I chose it.  This fits only Maitreya but their items fit all kinds of bodies, you just have to check the listings.

Hachi is from Fashiowl and he came with a set of really cute poses for only 60L for the Happy Weekend Sale, I just checked and they still have it up, so if you want him, go grab him NOW.  You will be glad you did, I had sooo much fun posing with him!  By the way, he fits all sizes of bodies!!  😀

Sharing a Snack

Coming soon

There’s not much more I love in this world than puppies and horses.  Seriously, I could leave nearly all the human race behind and be on an island of puppies and horses, I would be one happy chickie!  Honestly, I talk more to animals, plants and inanimate objects than I do to other people most of the time!

Can you spell I N T R O V E R T?  lol!

Anyhoo!  Another thing I love is cute clothes that I can get for cheap or even better free!  Today I’ve got a super cheap cute outfit for you from Cremosas Store who is one of out Fab Free designers.  It is one of many in her store, this one is a romper that is overall style and soooooo cute for summertime!  This cute ensemble will cost you only 25L!  They do come in lots of different colors, but I chose purple.

Sea Friends

Sea Friends

Hey FabFree! Tonight I am showing off some awesome free sea pets, how to make a free fully bento, BOM, and mesh mermaid avatar, and free skins and shapes on the FabFree enchanted forest hunt!

The Tale of the Orca and the Starfish

The first thing I want to mention are my adorable underwater pets. As you might recall, I love animals and I also love fish and underwater creatures! This amazing and precious Orca is free gift at SL18B and you have just enough time to go grab him because the event ends tomorrow. This will be my last SL18B find to share and I am super sad about it, because I just loved this event. However, this beautiful gift by Jian is simply amazing. The Orca swims along with your avatar and it even does water tricks! It is just magical watching her/him swim underwater. Go grab this Orca for free at Jian’s booth at SL18B before it’s too late. 

The other cute little animal shown in my post today is the adorable starfish, who you will see has little cute, pouting eyes. This is a fish I caught with my 7Seas casual fishing rod for free. The rod costs 99L to buy, but you can catch free outfits with it (remember Aline and Arielles recent Sn@tch fishing post here?). While waiting for outfits, I have caught a lot of fish too and they are actually really cute pets! Many are animated, can swim around you, or you can rezz them in a tank or aquarium. They are too cute to delete. I just love this little starfish guy, and you can see a close-up of his little face below. 

Free Mermaids, anyone?

The other finds I want to share today are items that can be used to make a full, free BOM, Bento mesh mermaid avatar. 

The OpenMerTail

My mermaid tail is a free fully bento (moving) mesh tail- how cool is that! It’s like a total extension of your avatar. This tail moves and twists like a mesh avatar but the trick is to get the right bento ao for it to make full use of the bento features. The tail also includes fins which can be worn or detached. There is more information about this awesome bento, BOM mesh tail in the package, but it is all totally free on the Marketplace. This tail can be used on male, female and non-binary avatars. Because the OpenMerTail is its own mesh avatar part, you need to find and use BOM skins designed for the tail itself, and there is also a pack for creators and designers to make new skins for it! The tail is a full perm item. Note that a bento mermaid AO is not included in the package. 

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy Athletic
  • Must Trade Bara

OpenMerTail - Fullperm Bento Mermaid Tail

And here is a list of more free items I used to make my mermaid avatar:

  • I mentioned above how you will need skins for your new tail. Motley Fluke has several skins for the tail available for free on their marketplace store. The blue tail skin I am wearing can be purchased here for free. These tail skins are BOM and work only on the free mermaid tail advertised above. 
  • The stars pasties used to cover up my chest are another freebie on the marketplace. These stars are by Yama’s Ideas and they are unrigged, resizable mesh items. I just resized them manually to fit my avatar perfectly. The mesh pasties come in many different colours. 
  • The little bubbles below are a free animation by Stargaze on the marketplace designed for mermaid avatars. These are so realistic and perfect for creating realism of moving in the water. 
  • Finally, the skin used on my mermaid avatar is a free prize on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. This is one of several hunt prizes from 7 Deadly S[K]ins. The natural skin, untouched with no makeup, can be seen in my photo below. I am also wearing a free shape included in the hunt, but I just edited the tummy of the shape to fit the mermaid tail. The vendor ad of all the 7DS skins available for free on the hunt is posted below. These skin prizes are BOM and they include shapes and tattoos for Lelutka Evo elf ears as well. 

Mer Detail

☑ Enchanted Forest Hunt ☑ 5 skin boxes WITH shape included hidden in the store

When you add all these parts together, you will have a full bento, mesh, BOM mermaid avatar! Enjoy the mermaid and the orca, FabFree!

Hiking Buddies

In the Mountains

Hey FabFree! Do you like my alpaca? I just love him. We are hiking in the mountains together and got a great photo of our exciting afternoon! I ❤ him. 

Pets Galore

So first off today I am going to talk about all the great animals and pets shown in my post today! First, for free, is this awesome little chameleon! Isn’t he cute? You can get him as a free gift from SEmotion & Libellune at Mancave! The event is open until July 11th and they are celebrating their 4th anniversary! And yes- that means LOTS of gifts for the guys- over 100 actually! There are even some unisex gifts and decor thrown in at this event. Just join the event’s free group and click on the beer cans at each booth! I don’t have a male avatar to show you some of the men’s prizes, but this chameleon is one of the many free gifts there. Make sure you head to Mancave before this great event ends. 

I will mention my next find as a side-note- because it’s technically not under 75L. My alpaca friend comes from a gacha at the SEmotion & Libellune booth at Mancave. These adorable alpacas only cost 86L a pull. I apologize for mentioning something a bit over our price limit, but my little friend was too cute not to share. For 86L, you get an amazing little friend to ride around the grid and you only need to pull once to get this buddy in one colour.  

Green Gear

The next item on my list is to share this adorable green outfit, which is from Freda on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt. Freda has 5 prizes out including the top, shorts, ripped stockings, sneaks, and a grizzly bear backpack! The sizes for each item are listed below, and the backpack is resizable! This look is perfect for all your outdoor adventuring. Each prize is 5L so look around for that little rainbow fairy and each of these can be yours for only 5 L each! The hint to find these items is, “round and round the work table…”

Sizes Included (Top & Shorts)

  • Rebirth Eden
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Sizes Included (Tights)

  • BOM

Sizes Included (Sneakers)

  • Rebirth
  • Rebirth Teen
  • Rebirth Kids
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Classic

Make sure you also check past coverage of the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt at the following posts/links:

More credits @ SL18B! 

The last days to visit SL18B are upon us (it ends on July 6th for good!), and I wanted to share that EscalateD has 350L in free credits in their booth at SL18B. They even have many of their styles on sale for 40% off at the event, which you can purchase with your free credits. I am currently wearing Kinzey, one of their many lovely hairstyles you can buy with the store credit gift. 

Enjoy, FabFree!
