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.

Gift shoes u might miss

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?

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

Some Traditional Fare

SomeTraditional Fare

Time for some traditional Christmas fare – a bit of sushi will get you feeling ready to deck the halls in no time.  Ok, well maybe it’s not entirely traditional, but it is entirely delicious!

Back to Shop and Hop

We’ve given you a bit of taste of what’s available at Shop & Hop – the sprawling Linden event with jillions of free gifts.  But, since my last post, the perennial favourite Blueberry have put their gift out and it was worth the wait!  The Holiday Gift Top comes with 6 different texture options in the HUD and is just super cute.  I also picked up this bombastic headband from ChicChica while I was at it!  Isn’t it cute?  There are 3 different styles in the box, so there’s sure to be something you fancy.  As per usual, it’s all free – no need to join a group!

Shirt Sizes

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

Let it Snow!

You’ll note I have some magical little snowflakes falling all around me, and that’s because Cazimi have put out a new free gift for everyone!  A really cute snowflake emitter, so that wherever you go you’ll be gently dropping snowflakes all around you.  I’ve always had a thing for particle emitters since the old days (when we used to call them poofers and they would explode whenever you landed somewhere…or maybe that’s still a thing…hmm…).  All free, just click on the vendor in the free gifts section of the store.

More soy sauce needed!

Party Prep

Party Prep

When I get ready for a Christmassy-type shindig, I put on loud music, grab a drink and then find myself a really cute outfit.  I have always loved the simplicity of a chic pantsuit, but this one is not exactly what I would classify as simple.  It has all the bells and whistles I need for the biggest parties, while still being entirely comfy.  Let me give you all the details!

Queen of Queenz

I love when Queenz puts out a new group gift, because it’s always fabulous and different.  They are also great for all the curvy avatars out there, so if you have a hard time finding clothes that fit, you should really give Queenz a try.  By joining their free group, you gain access to a pile of great outfits, and the latest is the Outre pantsuit I’ve got on.  I enjoy the addition of the fluttery trim on the jacket.  The top and pants can be worn separately, so if you really fancy a skirt with the jacket, then you can totally make that happen too.  The HUD allows you to change the colour of the pants and the jacket separately as well.  Don’t forget to pick up the rest while you’re there!

Cheers!

Silly in the Snow

Silly in the Snow

Oh FabFree!  I’m feeling a little bit silly today.  I mean, I usually feel silly in some form or another, but today especially.  I feel like running through snow, throwing snowballs, telling ridiculous jokes and laughing until my belly hurts.   I think we could all use a bit of silliness in our every day, otherwise what’s the point of it all?  Take a minute to laugh today, FabFree.  It will make things much better.

Jump for Your Love

Ok!  So this cool one piece jumpsuit is the latest group gift from LSR.  They really do keep their group members on their toes with all the gifts!  I can’t count how many awesome gifts I’ve picked up there in just the three months (or so) since I’ve joined the group, and they’re always sexy and fun.  The group is currently 99L to join, but really – that price is totally worth it for the amount of gifts you’ll get the minute you join.  This jumpsuit comes with a very extensive colour change HUD and has me feeling pretty snazzy!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

What? All of Them?

ChicChica are celebrating the season with a really nice surprise!  All their old Christmas gifts are out for everyone to grab!  No need to join a group, just click on the box that is beside Santa Claus- it’s free!  Don’t head up to the main store to find this one, just turn around and look for Santa behind you when you land.  The box is near his feet.  Inside, you’ll get all sorts of fun wearables.  I’m showing you one of the sparkly headbands, the really pretty princess shoes (sized for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza) , and of course the hilarious Christmas balls that put me in the mood for a bit of humour.  It’s all free!  Happy Holidays indeed!

Past Christmas gifts @ ChicChica

Ok, I think I need to put these down now, they’re getting heavy!

Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime

Simply Having A Wonderful Christmastime

Heya FabFree!

Happy Friday!  I am filled with Christmas spirit today, and heading off into the woods for some general prancing and merrymaking.  I love The Forest sim far too much (it usually disappears the rest of the year, so I gotta cram it in now!) and this super Christmassy outfit was exactly the right look for frolicking in the lights and snow!

All The Things

I’m sending you to three different locations today, and I’m feeling a bit non-verbose, so I’ll keep it simple for ya.  I picked up my dress, gloves, jewelry and shoes all for free, and here are the deets:

  • Free dress and gloves by Maai sized for Maitreya.  Grab this one by joining the MGSN group for free, and clicking on the vendor at the landing point.
  • Free shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP .  The Mosquito’s Way group is free to join.  You’ll find this one on the wall to the right of the front desk!
  • Free earrings by ChicChica.  No group to join here, just click on the box on the front counter!  There’s also a matching ring in the box.

I hope my quick rundown of what I’m wearing wasn’t too jarring, I promise I won’t be so lazy in the future.  It’s Friday and I am raaaather exhausted from the day’s exploits!  Here are the vendor photos for the smaller items so you can see the detail.

All Over Again

All Over Again

I’m back in pink and black again.  It seems to be a thing that just happens!  And the best part is, I don’t mind one bit!

I’ve Had a Vision!

It’s ViSion’s 10th Anniversary inworld, and they are totally spoiling their group members!  If you join their group for 18L, you’ll gain access to an awesome group gift of 450L in store credit.  The best part is, the whole store is on sale, so you get way more bang for your buck.  I bought the bodysuit (the necklace is included) and skirt I’ve got on there, and I still had money left over for more!  Fantastic!  You’ve got until October 18th to take part in all the festivities, so don’t let this gift get away from you!

Pumpkin Spice

ChicChica are ready to serve up something delicious!  The Pumpkin Spiced Ice Cream Rolls look so so yummy that I’m feeling a bit jealous of my avatar… It’s got a sweet bento hold and best of all it’s completely free!  You don’t even need to join a group.  You’ll find this awesome treat on the front desk at ChicChica.  Yum!

See you sweet things soon!

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!

Orange You Glad

Orange You Glad

This pumpkin queen is ready to dive into all things pumpkin.  You know, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte (though I prefer to remove the coffee….dunno what that says about me) and pumpkin um…. picking?  Sure! It’s time to get crazy about orange!

Kink or Treat

A Town Called Short Leash is having one of their epic hunts right now, this one called “Kink or Treat”.  As you can guess from the title, it is indeed an adult-themed hunt, though not all the prizes on the hunt are adult items.  I chose the prizes from Aurora’s Closet to show you, because they just made me happy in general.  I love a good theme!  I searched the sim for the little purple candy bars and grabbed the shirt for 10L, the pants for 15L and the shoes for 25L (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy & Slink).  You’re sure to find something you like if you check out all the hunt keys and hints on the A Town Called Short Leash website.  Have fun!  You’ve got til October 31st!
