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


Love is Free

Love is Free

It’s Valentine’s Day eve, and that means that you’ve got to sort out all your bits and bobs.  By sort out your bits and bobs, I clearly mean settle on one of the bajillion gorgeous outfits that have been placed out as gifts, hunt items, discounts…my head is spinning with all the possibilities.  I found some really lovely items that came together as a strong contender for my final option for V-Day, but knowing me…I’ll probably change 5 times in a night anyway!

Short and Sweet

There’s a new group gift at Osmia!  I just love it when that happens!  This pretty pink and heart-covered dress is just what I needed for a night of romance (there are also lots of other colours in the HUD if you are not a pink person).  I particularly enjoy the little lace trim around the hem.  The best part is that this pretty dress is completely free!  Just join the Osmia group for free, then click on the vendor that’s just inside the front doors of the shop.  There are some other wonderful gifts there too while you’re at it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

Shoe Addiction

ChicChica are being their usual generous selves with a new gift for all.  No need to join a group to pick up these lovely shoes, you’ll find them for free on the counter of the main store.  There are also some other shoes in the box too (which you can see in the vendor pic below).  The ones I’ve got on come in both silver and gold options and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Last Stop

Time for another new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  This delicate little necklace I’ve got on is a cheeky little nod if you’re fending off the advances of some unworthy suitor.  The little gold bar in the middle says “not yours”, which made me giggle a little when I put it on.   There are three other choices of message, as well as a metals HUD with a few different options.  The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to Join, but you’ll find a very large pile of extremely high quality gifts on the main counter of the store, making the join super worth it.

Have you got your outfit sorted yet?

Valentine Wine Time

Valentine Wine Time

Tis the season to be heart-eyed!  The minute February hits it’s like an avalanche of hearts here in SL.  I am not going to complain for one moment, having a bit of a propensity for the cuteness of it all.  However, I know there are some people out there who would rather have a relationship with their beverage of choice, thus I present to you…. Wine, my Valentine…

Take a Sip

Let’s raise a glass to Sass!  They’ve got a whole bunch of Valentine’s Day themed outfits up on their lucky boards.  The great thing about these is that they move quick.  You won’t be standing around for hours with your fingers crossed! I was only there about 15 minutes and ended up with three great outfits.  I settled on showing you “Wine is my Valentine”, just cuz it made me giggle.  It comes complete with the shirt, skirt, shoes and garters (there’s even a little collar in the box too, if that’s your jam).  Join the Sass group for 10L and you’ll be able to claim your own!  These boards most likely won’t be around for long after V-Day, so don’t delay!

A Bit of Space

A Bit of Space

Time to get outside for some fresh air, FabFree!  I think I definitely need a bit of open space, some movement and to feel the wind on my face.  I’ve been spending far too much time cramped indoors in a mostly uncomfortable chair staring at a screen, so a bit of movement is on the menu today!

I Ador-sy It!

Adorsy are celebrating their move to a new sim with a new group gift!  This cute tunic and leggings can be customized with so many different colours that you’ll be playing around for ages.  You also have the option of removing the leggings, so you can turn this into a cute and slouchy dress to give you a nonchalant sexy look.  To get yours, join the Adorsy group for 30L, pay the vendor 1L (it will be returned to you immediately) and voilà!  All yours.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Legacy

You may also find some items on sale in the shop while you’re there, but word on the street is that today is the last day for the discounts!

Off I go!

No Signal

No Signal
Just because you’re stuck indoors, doesn’t mean you can’t look cute, amirite Fab Fam?  My New Year’s resolution is to be cute as a tiddly and ready to wink whenever and wherever!  (That sentence is up to you to figure out…)

Stay Cozy

Quinnty’s is starting the year off right with a cozy little cropped sweater as a group gift!  It comes with several different texture options (all themed around glitchy computers, something I hope the New Year doesn’t bring me…ahem!).  You can get yours by joining the Quinnty’s group for 50L, then pay the vendor 1L which will be promptly returned to you.

Thong Song

I hope my subtitle doesn’t get random songs from the 2000’s in  your head (or maybe I do…), but this cute little sporty thong has me feeling chill and sexy all at once.  It’s the latest group gift from Mug, and comes in 4 different colours to keep you happy.  As with most of Mug’s releases, there are a lot of different sizes and bulges for male or female looks so these really are quite unisex.  To get to the different sizes and options, just use the HUD.   The Mug group is currently 250L to join, and there are several very nice group gifts on the wall there for you.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Kupra

Happy Chillin’!

A Lot to be Getting on With

A Lot to be Getting on With

There are so many events and gift opportunities wrapping up right now, that I’m trying to let you all know about them before they disappear forever.  Here’s one more event that is soon coming to a close, but is well worth the visit: Cosmopolitan!

It’s Tradition!

The Christmas Season isn’t quite done yet (We’re on the 8th Day of Christmas today!), but you never know when gifts (or in this case a tree FULL of gifts) are going to disappear.  Over at Cosmopolitan, their tree still stands tall and is absolutely covered in really wonderful free gifts from quite generous designers.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • FREE Dress from Safira sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Legacy & Legacy Perky in both black and flower print
  • FREE Hair from No.Match in natural hair tones
  • FREE Cupcake by ChicChica (with candle on or off options!)

The word on the street is that the Cosmopolitan tree will be gone on Epiphany (January 6th) so do head over there, join the free group and then click on the little stockings on the tree.

By the way, Pru showed you some of the other gifts you can pick up there too HERE

Optical Illusion

Optical Illusion

Ok, I know I’ve been doing a lot of dark and Halloweeny, but now and then a pop of colour is needed.  I’m sure some readers out there also long for it, so this post is for you!

Now I’m Free

Did you know that The Free Dove gets updated regularly?  There’s always something new for you at SL’s premier freebie outlet.  The owner and organizer, Dove, works really hard to procure free and fabulous finds for the Second Life community.  You can find all the latest updates listed on their blog HERE.  This striking gown from Tiffany Designs is a new addition, and it really makes me think of those optical illusion books that were so hot in the 90’s.  I can’t even remember what they were called (please don’t let it be “optical illusion books”, because that would be semi-embarrassing).  On the same table, you’ll find a matching jewelry set for free, and a pair of shoes (not pictured) that go with the look perfectly.  To get them, and a bajillion other free items, just join The Free Dove group for free!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Je Vois La Vie en Pose

A new round of La Vie en Pose has taken off, and as per usual the designers are spoiling us with free gifts!  Join the La Vie en Pose group for free, and you’ll be able to pick up a free gift from each stall.  There are some really cute poses, and this one from Lyrium is quite different in the fact that it is more of an animation than a pose.  It cycles through a selection of cute movements that are super fun to take pictures of, and are really quite adorable.  There’s lots more!  Head over to La Vie en Pose before October 25th when it all goes aurevoir!

Bye for now!

Playing Dolls

Playing Dolls

There’s nothing I love more than putting outfits together with bits I find all over the grid.  I think it harkens back to my days of playing Barbie wayyyy back when.  When it comes down to it, at it’s essence, my Second Life experience is all about playing dolls!   I love dress-up, and SL is the perfect place to do it.

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary SaNaRae!  Six years of fun on the grid.  If you head over to the event, and join their free group, you’ll gain access to lots of excellent gifts.  Click on the massive mix tapes at each stall (I love me some old-school tapes!) and you’ll end up with piles of freebies.  Here’s what I’m showing you!

  • FREE top by Pink Lemonade sized for Maitreya and Freya (in three different states of dress!)
  • FREE Earrings by Madame Noir (comes with a necklace too)
  • FREE Pose by Lune

There’s loads more!  Head on over to SaNaRae before it all goes away on October 17th.

Pink Power

Pink Power

A bit of pink here and there (or everywhere) never really goes amiss.  I think the extreme girlishness of it all really just makes me happy.  And really, can you ever have too much pink?

Like a Mouse

The latest group gift from Mouse is what put me in a pink state of mind today!  Isn’t the top and skirt combo oh so cute?  I love every minute of it.  To get your own, just join the Mouse group for free and it’s all yours.  You’ll find several other gifts there as well, freebies and a bunch of lucky boards.  So much fun!

Make Me Feel

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog. I just could not resist the opportunity to pair up with the indomitable Love Trill for this post. The MOVE! group gift at ACCESS gave us the perfect opportunity to show off some freebies and some dance moves at the same time. In true friend fashion, we also happen to be twinning in camo shorts from RKKN which are also free at ACCESS. To help pull my look together I added one of the 6 free group gifts at Versov. Watch the video, keep reading for more info, peep the end of the post for full credits, and above all have fun!

ACCESS

Move! put out this fun casual dance as their free ACCESS group gift. Don’t forget you’ll need the ACCESS event group tag to get these gifts. The ACCESS group is free to join. Ladies, you can also pick up these cute camo print shorts by RKKN at ACCESS for free. They come in 3 sizes, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, and Belleza Freya.

Versov 

The Lolitov sneakers I have on are free at Versov. You’ll need the Versov group tag to get them and the other free group gifts. Not to worry though, the group is also free to join. These shoes (like all the gifts) are a full fatpack of colors and include male, female, and unrigged sizes. We’ve shown a few of the other Versov group gifts like the Jumpov sneakers, the Zlatorov heels, and the Sandov slides before. They are all still available.

Lolitov Sneaker Sizes: Maitreya, Slink (M/F), TMP (M/F), Belleza (F), Signature (M), Unrigged L/R

A Night In

A Night In

I’ve been feeling indulgent today, feeling the need to drag myself up out of the doldrums quarantine can sometimes bring me to. What better way to self-indulge than to wander through Tres Chic while it’s full of free gifts (thanks to this being an anniversary round)?! Aline gorgeously showed off a few of the generous Tres Chic group gifts in her post “Back in the Day“, and I wanted to share just a few more while they are still available. The Tres Chic group is free to join, just wear the tag and click the gift boxes to get your freebies.

Elven Elder

My lavender trimmed hoodie is the Tres Chic gift by Elven Elder. Purple, and just about every shade thereof, is a favorite color of mine, so this freebie is a need. It comes in the color shown with a few size options. It also comes with a hud that lets you adjust the materials and glossiness of the hoodie.

Sizes Included: Legacy, Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara

BH9

These cool blocky glasses are the free Tres Chic event gift by BH9, they come with clear lenses like shown, and with dark lenses. They are unisex, and can be sized via touch menu.
