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


Back to Cool

Back to Cool

It’s back to school time in my part of the world, and I’m always a sucker for new clothes, new stationery and new friends!  There’s something exciting about September, it’s always been one of my faves.  A big shout out to all the teachers heading back to uncertain circumstances in schools, whether you’re teaching in person or doing remote learning, and also to all the students who are heading back to a school building that doesn’t function the way it did in the past.  Stay safe, education land!

Feeling Pretty, Yet Again!

The other day I showed you the newest group gift from Pr!tty, and I’m happy today to show you the second one that you’ll also get!  The Pr!tty group is free to join, and you’ll find this full fatpack of hair in group notices.  I love every minute of it!

Alpha Beta

Another group gift you’re sure to enjoy is yet another you can get over at Alpha Female.  This group is also free to join, so this full outfit is an awesome deal!  In the box you’ll find the top, jacket and jeans, perfect for back to school awesomeness.  The top and jacket combo can be worn separately from the jeans, so they’re a good staple to add to your collection.  Oh, there’s also a pair of boots in the box too!

Mix and Match

Mix and Match

Don’t  you wish you had as much dressing chutzpah in RL as your avatar does in SL?  I’m sure some people manage to make that transition seamlessly, but my SL-self has a tendency to mix patterns with wild abandon and always come off looking PDC (pretty darn cute).  Maybe one day her dressing wildness will rub off on RL-me!

I’m Pro-Magic

There’s a new subscriber gift at Promagic!  It’s completely free, completely creative, and completely cute.  They’re generously offering you the pants and top in several different mixy-matchy colours and patterns, and all you have to do to get them is subscribe for free!  When you land, you’ll see the massive subscriber unit.  If you’re already subscribed to Promagic updates, but haven’t received anything, just unsubscribe and resubscribe and the gift will promptly be delivered to you.  Both items can also be worn separately!

Stay Wild, Child

Stay Wild, Child

A little madness now and then is cherished by the wisest men.  And women too, obviously.  On days when I feel bored and uninspired, the best way to kick start my motivation is to throw some crazy clothes on.  Does that work for you?

Queenz Everywhere

There’s a new group gift at Queenz!  I love their urban and curve-hugging styles that always make me feel excited to get moving.  Their latest is this super cool top, shorts and panties set that come in a bunch of exciting hues.  I love the fact that the shorts are see-through, because it just adds a hint of sexiness to what would have traditionally been a utilitarian outfit.  You can get this outfit (and a pile of other group gifts) by joining the Queenz group for FREE!  You heard me boo!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy

Oh Man…Gula!

There’s a new subscriber gift out over at Mangula!  These chunky platforms will have you stepping in style all summer long.  The Mangula subscriber unit has a one time join fee of 100L, but you gain access to a massive pile of gifts in their main store, making the fee super worth it.  Plus, it doesn’t take up group space!  Win!  These shoes come sized for Belleza, Ebody, Legacy, Maitreya and Slink.

Go forth and be weird!

Limit8 but not Limited

Deer me... 1

Limit8 is a new-to-me event though it’s obviously been around a while because this month is its anniversary round with free gifts! If you join the Limit8 group (free to join) you can pick up gifts at each of the booths!

A new dress

I stopped by the Ella booth and picked up a new free dress. It only comes in a Maitreya fit, but you get two colors: Military (shown) and floral (not shown). Both are very pretty.

Shoes too!

Stop by the Dirty Princess booth for new free heels. These Darling Princess Heels in black come with gold details and you’ll get them to fit both Slink and Maitreya feet.

The bracelets…

I added these chevron bracelets by Bubble which were also a free gift at Limit8. Just stop by the Bubble booth to pick them up.

Deer me... 2

One last touch

I couldn’t resist adding one last touch to my outfit. I adore this free little deer bauble choker necklace by Burial. It is delicate and simple and yet very detailed. It’s simply stunning and my favorite part of this outfit. I had to show it off! Be sure to stop by the event to pick up this free giveaway!

Can’t satisfy my green thumb without the right outfit!

Well hello again all you beautiful FabFree readers! Is it Thursday again already? Wow, this week has just flown by. It’s been pretty hot in my neck of the Canadian woods. To beat the heat, staying out of the sun,  I thought I’d take some time to do some gardening in my new SL home that I had showed you all before. Though, naturally, I have my priorities skewed to the fashion side, so I had to put together the perfect gardening look first.

garden1

I’ll start at the top of my head, and work my way down. My super cute, straw hat is a free group gift from {amiable}, which is a new to me store that I had landed at after seeing one of their other available gifts in a picture on flickr. The group is free to join, and there are several gifts you can grab while you are there, so it’s worth the group spot. I had to include a shot of the hat from the back so you could see the cute little ribbon.

garden3

Next item of my summery outfit is the lacey Tied Top from [BLUES]. This lovely mesh shirt is a current promo for only L$1 on the Marketplace. What a deal. Underneath, I am wearing the Jean Tube Top in Pink from Krissianne’s Kloset, which is also a Marketplace find. This time, for only L$3. It is shirt layer only, but I know there are many of you out there still rocking the clothing layers like I do 😉 . And, lastly, but not leastly…my ‘girly with an edge’ jean shorts. These highly detailed mesh shorts are a gift from MoDANNA for the enMESHed into Summer 2015 hunt that runs until July 15th.  What is really cool about these rose printed shorts is that you you can choose to wear them with or without the pockets hanging out of the front, as well as the studs. The pockets, and studs are both separate mesh pieces that you do not have to use if you don’t want to. However…as you can see, they are great with both. All hunt prizes are free, and the clue for this particular prize is ‘YOU’VE BEEN RICKROLLED!!’ For a full list of participants, plus their hints, head over to the enMESHed Hunts Blog.

garden2

Now…I did mention I was gardening right? Well I guess I better mention that the gorgeous potted plants, and that fun garden sign in my pictures are from {what next}, and only L$10 per set on the Marketplace. The sign is from the Serendipity Garden Planters and Sign set, and plants are from that set as well as the Boathouse Cottage Planters and Sign set. Each set come with 3 different pots, each with a different plant, and a sign. Serendipity is HERE, and Boathouse is HERE. Just because you need to decorate, does not mean you need to spend a lot for great quality 🙂 .

Well…it’s that time again. All this gardening has me ready to go sit on that bench with a nice cool drink, admiring my handy work.

Oh, but before I go, I just wanted to wish all my fellow Canucks a happy belated Canada Day!!

OK, I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, and I will see you again next week! Until then, TTFN *waves*

New shoes make me feel just peachy!

Well hello all you Fab readers! I’m back! Did you miss me? I sure missed you. RL took me away for far longer than anticipated, but I couldn’t stay away, even if RL has only let up a little bit. So, for the time being, I will be posting every Thursday, and I couldn’t be more excited to get back into the swing of things.

purepoisonalaska1

Now, it was lucky for me that the day I came back to FabFree was the day Pure Poison sent out a notice about having a new group gift gacha out! The gorgeous Daya pumps, that I am showing off in Brown, are available in 6 colours, with a rare animal print pattern as well. I’m sure all you loyal readers know how their gacha group gifts work, but for any new readers, or those that just aren’t familiar, let me explain. Head over to the store, and put on your Pure Poison group tag, which is free to join, and hit the blue gacha machine with the group gift sign on it. You get 1 free play for being a group member. Now, if you are not a group member, or did not get the colour you wanted from the group machine, despair not, because right beside the blue gacha is a green gacha that is L$50 per play for everyone. Everybody wins this way…and I love it! I happen to be wearing the SLink rigged version, but you also get an unrigged SLink pair, and a pair for Maitreya feet.

purepoisonalaska2

The other goodie I have to show off, is from one of my favourite stores, Alaskametro. Every month, there is a new Facebook giftie available, and while May is almost up, you still have a little bit of time to grab the May gift. In this month’s gift, you receive a whole lot of peachy goodness! There are makeup and polish huds for most head and body types you can think of, as well as tattoo layers for the makeup. The polish comes with 2 choices, a solid peach, and a polka-dotted peach, which I’m able to show you both on one hand now that I’ve updated my SLink hands which allow selecting individual nails for different colours!!! (What a great update to come back to SL to!) There are 2 lipsticks, 2 eyeshadow, and 2 blushes, all in the peach shade family. I happen to be wearing the Peach Juice lipstick, and the Peach Shimmer eyeshadow. To get this free pack of peach yumminess, head to the Alaskametro Facebook page, like it, if you haven’t already, and hit the special promotions tab. It will take you to a page which will give you a password, then head on over to the main store, stand near the gift poster, and on channel 33, say the password in chat. Example: /33 ‘password’, where ‘password’ is replaced with the actual password. Make sure you type it exactly as you saw it on the page, capital letters and all.

purepoisonalaska3

Phew! Can you tell that I’ve missed writing for all of you lovelies? If I had a word quota, I think this post would have used up several posts worth! LOL. Anywho. That is it for me for now. I will be back in a week with some more fabulous finds to show off. Until then, TTFN *waves*

I think that seagull is posing for me!

Happy Sunday Fabulistas! Were you able to have a nice quiet day like I did? I think a lazy day is a good way to finish out a long week, or start a new week, depending on what you think a Sunday does. Naturally, I spent some of that free time running around and finding some fun things to show you all.

photoshoot1

I started out at the OMG – Oh My Gacha Event. There are so many gachas there, I wish I could show you everything I played for. However, I was able to pick out a few of the items I won. My very first play was the Verocity Machine. There are 2 different machines, but I fell in love with the Camera Poses in the first one. There are 8 in total, and I got almost all of them, and at only L$25 per play, and no rares, it was pretty easy. Each pose comes with its own camera prop already adjusted for that specific pose. Lag ate a few of them from me, but when I contacted Bliour Michaels (Windie Melody), owner of Verocity, she was quick to respond as well as help me out. Thanks Bliour!

photoshoot3

Another OMG goodie I got, were these super cute sneakers from bubble! There are 10 commons, and 2 rares to be won, and they are only L$60 a play. These are un-rigged mesh, so they are easily resized and repositionable, which totally means they could be unisex, as I could easily see a guy wearing a pair of these.

photoshoot4

The last gacha prize I’m going to show off is this super playful hair from ploom. These come in the ploom standard colour fatpacks, of which 6 are commons, and 3 are rares. I only played the one time and ended up with a colour pack that works for my preference of hair colour, yayyy!! The cute little bows are texture change, with quite a few options to match almost any outfit. This gacha is L$75 per play.

photoshoot2

OMG – Oh My Gacha runs until the end of the month, so you have loads of time to get over there, maybe even wait a day or 2 and let the lag die down! Who can wait though, am I right? LOL.

Oh, you were probably noticing the different lipsticks I am wearing in the picture that shows off my hair. Well, for all you makeup lovers, you need to head down to Oceane, and just behind the counter, there is a stack of gift boxes tied up with ribbon, and inside you will find the biggest fatpack of lipstick I have ever seen! Best of all, it’s free! Seriously, there are many different colours, of which I am only showing a few, and almost each of these colours comes in several different shades as well. There has to be 30+ lipsticks in there. I’m not sure how long this gift is going to be out, so make sure you run down there right away, I’d hate for you all to miss out.

Okee dokee…I think I am done for the evening. All that relaxing today has made me sleepy 😛 LOL. So until next time, TTFN!

I’m not pulling a sleigh, there are 8 tiny Reindeer for that!

I’m baaaa-ckkk! I had so much fun doing a themed Christmasy look on Friday night, that I am doing another today. This time, I’m a reindeer! Well, ok, maybe I’m not a reindeer, but I sure found a lot of cute reindeery items to put together! 1 freebie, 1 free group gift, and 1 gacha item. Wanna see, well alrighty then.

reindeer1

I’m going to start with my sweet sweater and skirt group gift, which is free from [bubble]. If you are not a member of their group, you will need to pay a L$150 join fee, but as I’ve mentioned before, there are a bunch of previous group gifts still out for you to grab. Once you put your tag on, you just need to slap the picture of the outfit, and it’s yours! These 2 pieces are both mesh, with all of the standard sizes available, as well as a flat chest version of the sweater in sizes S and XS. I love how the colours of these are not traditional Christmas colours, so while I think of Christmas when wearing them, they could easily be worn at any time of the year. Remember…versatility rocks!

reindeer2

My next item, well, it screams Christmas. These fun antlers that I am wearing, are another Promenade gacha prize, this time from AJ Designs. They are L$50 per play, and there are 9 total to play for: 7 commons, 1 secret common, and 1 rare. The lights on mine really blink and light up, as well, one of the commons, and the rare, have flashing Rudolph noses. Make sure you grab AJ Designs free gift too, there is a tee for Women, and a tee for Men, in the present on the table, beside the gacha poster. As I mentioned yesterday, you have until Dec 21 to visit this round of The Promenade, so don’t wait too long!

reindeer3

My last find, is actually one that I picked up a week ago, but had been waiting  to find just the right outfit to wear it with. My lovely Reindeer necklace is a free for all gift from Izzie’s, and goes oh-so nicely with everything else I have on, obviously I was meant to wait to show it to you all. The jewel in the center is texture change, so it will compliment any colour palette you are wearing, and while I am wearing it with a more casual look, it can easily be added to a much more formal outfit. Perfect for a Christmas party, wouldn’t you say? I do not know how long this giftie will be out, so I would not wait too long to go grab it.

OK my fabbie readers, I must be off for now. I have more wonderful things to show you, but that will have to wait until tomorrow, as my bed is calling to me 🙂 . So, until then, TTFN!
