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


Market Finds for the Girls *and* the Guys!

market 1_022

Hey gang,

So, I was inspired by my partner Cray’s ability to find dealios on marketplace and I went and found myself something to match!  Proving that there are cute things to be found on market for *everyone*.

For the guys, Cray found this awesome 10L outfit by ALB.  He’s rather conservative style wise (unlike me  lol), so I was very impressed by the colorful scarf which really spoke to my bohemian sense of style.  It’s a full outfit (pants, shirt, jacket, scarf) and fits:

  • FitMesh
  • Classic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Slink Male
  • Gamit Ocacin
  • Signature Gianni
  • Adin Bento
  • Onupup)

Now my punk-ish outfit, which I love, is on market for only 50L by Misako, it too is a full outfit (suspender pants, sweatshirt and hat).  The sweatshirt comes with a HUD giving you several choices of 80’s films (I chose Indy!) and the pants come in blue and black as well.  This outfit fits:

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

Anyhoo, there is so much going on in the grid right now, so let me wrap this up and grab more stuff to show you.

Lost Hearts Hunt ~ 25 FREE & Fabulous Gifts!!!

Lost Hearts Hunt!
I love me a good hunt, but I really don’t like hunts that are just too hard.  I mean, really, who has all that spare time???  I loved (LOVED) the Lost Hearts Hunt located at Valentine Island.  There are 25 easy to find prizes all over this very well decorated Valentine’s Day sim.  There are lots of places to take pictures; lots of places to picnic, dance or play with your SL partner!  But, what’s the BEST part you ask…well, everything is FREE!!!  No group is needed :-). You have some time to get there, but definitely don’t miss it!  The hunt lasts until February 20, 2022.

The Valentine's SimI don’t want to spoil the hunt for you…so I am not telling you where any of these little hearts are located, but, they aren’t overly hard to find.  They are FREE, so just right click and buy for 0L.  Don’t try the age old trick of looking up under Creator because the amazing creator, Tayren Theas, has created pretty much everything on the sim, so you will have beacons everywhere :-). Tayren has been on the grid a long time and designs for SL Ballet.

The Hearts are all different I’ve featured a few of my favorite FREE gifts in the picture above, but, truly, I spent 20 minutes just trying to decide.  The Asian Teahouse comes with furniture and plants (not pictured).  The ladies pajamas match the Men’s boxers (also not pictured).  This chess set that I am standing on can be PLAYED!  The Fountain behind me has running water.  The couple’s tree comes in three versions (Spring, Winter, and White Flower).  There are also adorable Valentine’s chalk posters (not pictured).  The list goes on and on.

So, what are YOU waiting for…grab cupid’s bow and arrow and get on over to Valentine Island!

A Closeup of the Ring

In this picture, I am wearing the adorable pajamas (called Loungewear) and the little gold heart ring that was easy to adjust.  These gifts both have FREE male counterparts (boxers and a male heart ring).  How cool is that???

Little April Shower

Little April Shower

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around
Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

Shopping from Home: SL Style!

tea_002

Hey gang!

As fun as it is to run ourselves ragged shopping like lunatics in world, there is a certain satisfaction in staying in the comfort and seclusion of your cozy sl home and scooping up bahgains anyway.  I’ve brought a handful of such goodies here to show you today.  (marketplace show n tell time kiddies!  woot!)  From clothing, to props to decor, you can find it all, and find it I did!  I spent a whopping (are you ready?) 134L and I got a dress, shoes, teacups with multiple poses and wall decor.

Lets begin with the dress.  I got this soooooper cute dress for only 65L from DejaVu Designs.  It comes with a HUD that has 40 colors and comes in these sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Classic

These cute tiptoe sneakers, which I Lurrrrvvveee, come from ROC which has so many cute affordable shoes, I barely know where to begin (I have my eye on another cute pair I think I will scoop up next time and blog).  I got these for 49L, they come with a HUD that gives you 25 color choices so your cute sneakers will *always* match, and they fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Now the little teacups with poses come from LISP Bazaar (I love their stuff!), they cost 10L and come with a choice of 6 really cute poses and you have your choice of steaming or not steaming.  I wanted my tea to be hot cause it’s been chilly, so I chose steaming.

Last but not least, see those totally adorbs string lights hanging on the wall behind me?  Those are from The Black Forest and they cost me 10L.  They are really sweet in person, especially considering the price.  1 prim for each “curtain”.

Til next time, I hope you are all enjoying the FabFree hunt!!

Cozily yours,

❤ Arielle

Happy, Healthy & Zen AF

FabFree: Happy, Healthy & Zen AF

Good morning FabFree, and Happy New Year! I am not one to make resolutions for new years as I never seem to be able to follow through with them, but I am really hoping that this year for myself and for everyone is super zen AF…  Happy, healthy and zen AF!

Attention SL photographers and bloggers!

Today I am featuring news about DB Poses on marketplace.  DB Poses has been known for years to make lovely male, female, couple and family poses, but has recently announced that he will be taking a break and has dropped the price of all of his items to 10L in the marketplace store.  I found several fun poses for myself that I can’t wait to use, and I thought this news might be useful for anyone that is into Second Life photography or blogging.

This particular bento pose is called The Moments We Live For and yep…  10L!

Happy snapping!

A Whole New World

18-01-03

Living in a fairy tale…

Isn’t that what Second Life is all about? If you can dream it, you can be it. So, today I decided that I would relive one of those special movies from my daughter’s childhood, Aladdin. I was lucky enough to find the Arabian Nights costume at ~MystRie~ for just 1L as part of the Fairy Tale Hunt. The costume consists of a vest, pants with shoes, both in sizes XS-XL, armbands, a necklace, a turban, and even a beard. But you need to hurry. The Fairy Tale Hunt ends on January 10th.

On a magic carpet ride…

Playing Aladdin would not be complete without a flying carpet. I found exactly what I needed on the Marketplace with The Magic Carpet by siliconedoll. This 10L item is wearable so you can ride the air currents wherever you go. It also includes different sitting poses to fly the skies in comfort.
