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


Candy Girl

Candy Girl

Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! For this post I have a few time-sensitive goodies from Junk Food and Demicorn, alongside a group gift at COCO. With time in mind I’m going to keep my banter to a minimum. Short and sweet, like candy! I hope you love these finds as much as I do.

COCO

COCO has a new group gift top out with a free join to their in-world group. I love the look of the top, and the bright sunny yellow color.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara (Original, Petite) MeshBody Legacy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

Junk Food 

Junk Food is participating in this week’s So Kawaii Sunday. Their 65 linden offer is this pack of delicious looking gummi bears. The bears have a bento hold pose, and bento wearable that attaches with your tongue out just like in my photo. Also, they have been updated to fit Genus heads.

Demicorn

My lipstick and eye makeup are Secret Sale items at Demicorn. Each applier set is just 50 linden for Sunday only. The lipstick works with Catwa HD lips, and Genus. The eye makeup is a Catwa applier only, however there are Genus sets for sale as well.

Alright, I think it’s time for a little confession. I think I am a freebie addict. What?! You already knew? lol Of course you did. Thankfully for all of us, we’re in excellent company here. I went on a bit of a freebie shopping spree at The Free Dove recently. It’d been a while since I’d browsed through the goods there, and I found a thing, or three to share with you. It was really a bit difficult to stick to only three, but no one wants to have a ten page blog post so here we are! Along with my finds from LYBRA, and Shiny Stuffs at The Free Dove, I picked up two of the several group gifts at Toksik. As always, credits will be at the bottom, details in the middle. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

LYBRA

I am loving this little dress by LYBRA at The Free Dove. It is free, like everything at The Free Dove. You just have to wear the group tag. The Free Dove group is also free to join. I like the satiny texture of this dress, and the romantic look to it. I feel pretty wearing it. It includes a color change hud with a fatpack of 26 solid color choices.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya

Shiny Stuffs 

Among my several Second Life shopping addictions (Hey there are worse problems to have!) I definitely tend to collect makeup. Shiny Stuffs has several free gifts at The Free Dove, including a few that have somehow escaped my attention before now. The “Gekischa’s Kiss” lip applier set, and the “Blink!” eye shadow set. There are 10 lipstick shades in the Gekischa’s Kiss gift by Shiny Stuffs, and 9 eye shadow choices in the Blink! set. These freebies come in Catwa appliers only. Don’t forget your Free Dove group tag!

Toksik

I recently came across Toksik, and I have no  idea why I’ve not shopped at this store before. Their style is eclectic and has a touch of fantasy mixed with modern elements. Right now the Toksik store group is 99 linden to join and there are 9 total group gifts currently available. Two of the nine gifts are unisex. I picked up a set of darkly adorable “Dolly” nails, along with the unisex necklace that reads “Heartbreaker.” The nails have 6 color schemes to pick from, and the are adorned with pretty little accents like bows and pearls. The necklace is sized via touch menu, and has 6 metal colors to choose from.

Nail Sizes Included: Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink

Starlight

Starlight

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I picked up a few group gifts recently that got me thinking about makeup. I love makeup. While I don’t believe makeup is something most people need, I do believe in the absolute fun of wearing it. I think it’s creative, and even artful at times. That said, I do feel pretty, and I think my look for this post is both fun and creative. The group gifts I’ve used to create this look come mostly from Ives Beauty, YOSHI Eyes, and POUT! Keep reading for all the details.

Ives Beauty 

My pretty lip color is part of a generous free group gift lip applier set group gift at Ives Beauty called Ravenous Tint. It comes in a range of nude pinks and purples. The best part, until August 21st the Ives Beauty group is free to join. You know what that means, don’t wait!

Appliers Included: Catwa HD Lips, Genus, Lelutka Evolution

YOSHI Eyes

Purple is one of my very favorite colors. I can remember wishing I had lavender eyes when I was a little girl. So in a way these bright blue/purple hued group gift eyes from YOSHI are a childhood dream come true. The YOSHI store group is free to join. In this free gift you’ll get appliers, a pair of mesh eyes, and BOM eyes.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Omega, Lelutka (BOM & Mesh Eyes also Included) 

POUT! 

Stars have always been attractive to me. So I couldn’t help but want this pretty set of little star face freckles from POUT!, especially considering they are a free group gift. I think they look sweet and give a touch of whimsy to your makeup. These stars come in several colors and are BOM only. The POUT! group is free to join as well.

Don’t Stop Believin’

Don't Stop Believin'

“Don’t stop believin’, just hold on to that feelin’…” ~ Journey 

Surely I’m not the only one with a brain full of useless (but totally fun) pop culture information. That said, when I saw this adorable (and free) group gift tee at Reed, I immediately felt like singing the Journey song “Don’t Stop Believin'” since that’s what the shirt says. The unicorn graphic is also pretty darn cute! Also at Reed are these pretty wristwatches that come in gold, silver (shown), black, and rose. They are free lucky letter board prizes, or you can purchase them all for 75 linden and not have to wait. The group gift shirt, and the Lucky Letter boards will require the Reed group tag, however the group is free to join.

Shirt Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), MeshBody Legacy

On my recent shopping excursion I also picked up some nail polish and eyeshadow from Demicorn. These pretty pastel nail polishes, and my vibrant eyeshadow are two of many group gifts at Demicorn. The Demicorn group is 100 linden to join. The polish has 6 color choices, and the eyeshadow has 5 color combinations to choose from. I have to say I’m very much enjoying these rich colors!

Nail Applier Included – Maitreya Only
Eyeshadow Applier Included – Catwa Only

Happy shopping Fab Free! Now you’ll have to excuse me while I return to my own personal rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin'” while dancing around my living room.

Beach Yoga

Beach Yoga

As we head into the start of a new week I’m all about some self care. I’ve decided to make some time for things like a little yoga and some meditation in my regular routine. For me there’d be no better spot for some restful mental zen than a quiet spot on the beach. It’s a good thing Luas put out this cute yoga mat out as their new group gift just in time for my rekindled dedication to mental clarity.

Luas

This new group gift at Luas comes with a built-in bento hold pose, and a texture change hud with a hand-full of color combo choices. The Luas group is 50 linden to join. If you are new to the Luas group (or haven’t been in a while) you can also grab quite a few of the past group gifts, and access the group-only Lucky Letter boards. You can check out one of those cool prizes in Aline’s recent post “Sharpened Pencils.”

Carol G

I’m also sporting the new women’s Midnight Mania board prize from Carol G. This gorgeous blue toned upper body tattoo is free with your Carol G group tag, just join the mania. The Carol G group is 200 linden to join, and there are tons of male and female free group gifts, and a men’s Midnight Mania board as well.

Appliers & Layers Included: Neck Appliers – Omega, Catwa, Lelutka, Vista / Body Appliers – Omega, Maitrey a, Legacy, Slink, Belleza / BOM Tattoo Layers – 35%, 50%, 75%, 100%

NecoT

Lastly, you can’t go to the beach without sunglasses. Or at least you shouldn’t if you ask me. lol These cool aviators are a Marketplace dollarbie by NecoT. They come in 3 variations, a cool yellow color, a mirrored black, and this transparent black pair. They are also 100% mesh, copy, and mod so you can customize the color of the lenses and frames yourself if you want to. Needless to say these are well worth the 1 linden.

Seaside Retreat

Seaside Retreat

MMmmm smell that salty air and feel that ocean breeze. Nothing like getting out of the city and to the coast. Here in Second Life that is. I took Pru on a little seaside retreat to get outta the house. We needed a change of scenery and to be free of the fur babies for a while. As the sun came up, I let her sleep in. I took a walk down to the nearest coffee shop and got us both a refreshing cold brewed boba treat from Movement.

Man Cave Anniversary Gifts

When on vacation no matter how short you gotta look the part. My outfit is composed of Man Cave Event Anniversary gifts. I couldn’t pass up sharing them with you guys. The black sailor hat is from a store I never heard of before. Honor, it’s a cool looking brimless cap with a nylon look. The slick short barely shown Roy Hairbase is from Not Found. My head skin is Drake by Stray Dog in tone 04. The sweet lined cut bread is from OKARA. The trending porn stache Mustache is from none other than Mister Razzor. This cool oval shades are made by Decision and come with a colour changing HUD for all the parts. This nautical type necklace, well choker comes by way of Lapointe & Bastchild it’s unisex. Even the ladies are welcome to grab it and wear it. Ascend has this nice draped shoulder shirt that comes with a 10 colour changing HUD.

I’m not usually one for wearing tattoos. When they’re free and look this good, I had to tell you all about it. The tattoo “Hidden Inside” comes in an appliers HUD for Omega, Belleza, and Maitreya. There is also a TMP installer. IDTTY even included BOM layers as well. The pearl type bracelet is by Dope+Mercy. It comes in white and black for both wrists. We all know this store is great with accessories.
I know by now your eyeing my shorts. These well textured colored summery shorts are named Issac, and they are made by Cubura. A great addition to your summer look. Lastly my brightly colored sneakers are from Betrayal. You get a fatpack of colors for both men and women. Teleport on over to The Man Cave Event, join the free group, and click them beer cans. You have until July 11th to grab them all. It looks like sleeping beauty is finally waking up. I’m gonna go enjoy the rest of our retreat. Catch y’all later.

Serving Lewks

Hey there Fab Free. I did like a lot of us are probably doing during our quarantine, I played with makeup! Before I could do that though, I completed the free in-store “Lot Makeup Hunt” at Dotty’s Secret. I also picked up the free Stay at Home Club gift from Xxxtasi. After all, no “lewk” would be complete without a cute manicure.

There are 6 makeup items (think lipstick, and a compact) hidden around the Dotty’s Secret store. These 6 prizes are free, you just have to find them and click them and your gift will be delivered. Each free gift has a different set of makeup appliers and classic/BOM layers. I was able to create all 3 of the above makeup looks using the gifts from the Lost Makeup Hunt at Dotty’s Secret.

Appliers/Layers Included: Classic/BOM layers, Catwa Appliers, Omega Appliers, *Some also include a Lelutka Applier

Dotty's Secret - The Lost Makeup Hunt + Free group membership

Last. but far from least, I picked up this very pretty and very subtle floral nail applier set by Xxxtasi. It’s their free Stay at Home Club gift. It includes 3 manicure choices, and is an Omega/Empire applier.

Through Anything

Through Anything

No matter what, my guy and I can make it through anything. Through thick and through thin, through the crashing of planes, the exploding of bombs, a new world regime! Anything at all could happen, and we’d come out on top, and look awesome while doing so. Okay, I admit that was a bit dramatic, but thanks to Second Life we can live through our stories. Thanks to Contraption, DRD, and Birth, we can look the part too!

I do love it when Blue and I find unique, whimsical, and otherwise outside the ordinary items inexpensively or better yet for free in Second Life.  Keep reading for info about each of these fantastic group gifts, and peep the full list of credits and links at the end. Then you can go on your own adventures.

Contraption

The foundation of my look for this post, and Blue’s, is this amazing jacket by Contraption. Not only is it highly detailed, it comes sized to fit both male and female avatars. It also includes a hud that allows you to change the metallic embellishments to gold or silver. This special edition version of the “Atreus Waistcoat” is free to all Le’Homme group members for the month of February. The Le’Homme Magazine group is free to join. You’ll find this cool gift waiting for you at Contraption behind the desk.

L'HOMME FEB 2020 GROUP GIFT: Atreus Waistcoat *MACHINA* edition

DRD

Death Row Designs aka DRD recently put out this cool as hell unisex cap as a free group gift. I love all the individual patches that add the detail of this hat. It comes in black, and navy blue. It’s able to be resized, and can be worn by male and female avatars. To get yours, you’ll need to join the free-to-join Death Row Designs group and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.
