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


Dreams of a Fairy Queen

25L Tuesday Kitty Creations Gunievere 7-12-2022.002_001 (1)

I have memories of my Mom & aunt hand-sewing appliques and pearls onto the wedding dress they made for a younger aunt, Of course I was a junior bridesmaid! Yesterday as I scoured the sales galleries for $25L Tuesday I saw this charming gown. It brought that memory to the forefront.

Buying gowns is low on my list as I don’t go to many formal affairs. Luckily one can wear formal clothing for any occasion in Second Life. Got to love that aspect! So let me give you the details.

Guinevere is her name

Guinevere, this precious looking gown is from Kitty Creations. The embellishments on the bodice and upper skirt look so delicate. There is a silk that hangs down your back like a train. The so pretty silver fairy crown and the gossamer wings are included in the package. Because it’s a sale item it is only available in one color for the $25L Tuesday sale. As of this morning you can still get it for the sale price.

Dreaming of Spring – Aaaachooo

telsiope Avril Spring Air Hunt

Am I being anti St Pat’s Day? Hmm, maybe a little. Spring is springing all over the place. Shovel off that remaining snow, plant your flowers, etc. In my case it’s time to sneeze! No mind, I still love spring; everything is fresh and new. Feeling a bit whimsical today I put together this really pretty outfit.

How Precious is it?

Prior to my return to blogging I had never heard of Telsiope’s Couture. I discovered the store during one of the FabFree Hunts last year. What a wonderful shop! It’s not a huge store but there is a variety of styles. Telsiope’s Couture also generously gives gifts to many different groups and regularly participates in hunts.

This dress shouts spring with the muted pastel colors and ruffles! I love being able to change my style on a whim in Second Life. You know, one minute I can be a sweet nymph and the next a dark dominatrix. Seeing as this is a mostly G rated blog, let’s stick to the sweet part. You can easily find the lovely Avril dress in the Spring Air Hunt 3 at Telsiope’s Couture. (Each item on the hunt costs $3L).

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique
  • TMP

A New Spring Do!

No_Match not only has regular group gifts plus a room full of previous gifts at least once a month there is a discounted style for $100L/color. No_Home is perfect for spring. It’s a short style; almost pixie-like. Options with and without the hat are available. I think it’s really cute though my real life brother says it looks like my 2nd grade school picture, lol!

A few words about the Spring Air Hunt. The monies raised through the hunt support the International Kenya Scout Development Project. The aim is to encourage the development of the community of Nyandiwa (Kenya) and the areas surrounding Lake Victoria. The International Kenya Scout Development Project partners with Harambee Gwassi and sustains the relevant role played by working together with the population through sustainable and repeatable micro-projects that enhance local resources and local culture. It sounds like a wonderful project. You can learn more about it here.

Ho, Ho, Ho, I’m Playing in the Snow

LP Santa Lingerie #4 new

You might say I’m a bit crazy making snow angels in lingerie. Around the grid I’m known as CreCre which always translates to CrayCray in voice or text. So this is “normal” for me. Face it, you have to be at least a bit touched to be in Second Life.

Did you know that Santa makes his elves and reindeer perform calisthenics in the snow?? It toughens everyone up for that long Christmas Eve ride. No one can give up or poop out (not reindeer poop, for Rudolph’s sake!)

Another Free Hunt?!

The current round of Orsy officially ended on 12/21 but everything, including the free hunt gifts are still out so fly over and grab them. I can’t guarantee they will be there much longer.

The 10 La Perla Hunt gifts are free with the Orsy event group tag (free to join). You’re looking for a Santa sitting on a cupcake while holding a Merry Christmas flag. Today I am sporting the Santa Lingerie # 4. It’s a festive set without being too revealing.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

8/17/2021 Nilsy Bikini top & Skirt

I’m Back!! I’ve got the goodies to show you today! There have been numerous events with gifts; unpacking & sorting ALL of it will have to wait.

Do you know about Nilsy?

A few years ago I was introduced to the Nilsy Store. If you’re into lacey, frilly, pretty textures this is the place for you. Nils, owner & designer, offers clothing that can take you from beach time to clubbing.

My outfit today is a free gift at the store. The store group is free to join; there is also a subscriber that won’t take up a group. Either way you’ll get all the news about new items and free gifts. There are 3 lucky chairs and a MM board to the right of the entrance; no group is needed for these. I picked up 3 other outfits from the Lucky Chairs.

The Tied Bikini Top & Mini skirt is entirely free and can be found at the back of the store behind the stairs. I love the embroidery details on the top!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • SLink HG & Phy
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Classic Body

The rest of the Stuff

This playful hairdo is a free gift by bonbon I picked up at the FLF Backyard Birthday Bash.  The Junko hair comes in a single color – Pink Ombre and it’s so stinking cute!

My cute little shoes come courtesy of Phedora! Another free FLF Backyard Birthday Bash gift, the Shelbie heels comes with a 20 color Fatpack HUD!! What a great gift! The shoes are fitted for Maitreya, Kupra, Belleza, Legacy. & Slink.

There is still plenty of time left to stuff your inventory.

TTFN…

It’s Been a Fabulous Friday!

Happy Friday peeps!! Friday means big sales & lots of goodies. It’s also the start of the weekend and time to partay! I found some great stuff for looking fab and sexy.

Fifty Lindens!

Cynful‘s offer for FLF is the Play Time Romper. It comes with a HUD with 4 ombre shades. It’s sexy & certainly playful. You’ll feel like a million dollars in this.

Sizes

  • Maitreya regular & petite
  • Legacy

My darling shoes are the Totem Wedges for the FLF sale @ Astralia. A color change HUD is included. It lets you change all the different components of the shoes like pompoms, bands, laces, etc. You’ll get a lot of use out of these.

Of course I needed hair!! I always need more hair. Maybe I like SL hair better because I can’t do a thing with my RL hair. I scoured the sales galleries and gacha sales to find something. I noticed that Rama Salon had $25L gacha sales. My first pull got me this long & sexy blonde style, Grace. I love it when things come together!

Get out & shop ladies!!

Uber Cuteness @ The Beach

Bold Llama Better @ the Beach

I remember with fondness the many hours I spent on the beaches of Florida’s panhandle or sailing on my friend’s catboat. Of course those days are over now. These days I visit beaches in Second Life because it’s much cooler and better for my skin. I still have some beach vibes in me.

Hunt Goodies

As we eased into August new hunts started. The Save the Sea Hunt 2 benefits the IKSDP-Harambee Project Gwassi Kenya, a non-profit association that aims at the self-development of the Nyandiwa community on the shores of Lake Victoria (Kenya). Items on this hunt are $3L each.

My Better at the Beach Tee by The Bold Llama T – Shirt Co. speaks to how uncomplicated & freeing it can be to actually be on a beach. I would def wear this in the real world. Graphic tees are my thing in both lives.

Sizes

  • Belleza Isis, Freya, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique
  • Ebody
  • Ocacin
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy Fine
  • Standard Sizes

I wandered over to the 1 Hundred store today to pick up a sale item. I was excited to see a $10L find! The cute skirt I’m showing is from the Say It Mini Set. It comes with a Tiny Kini top (not shown here). The whole outfit is very cute as is everything there.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglasss
  • Legacy

The Friend or Foe 6.0 Hunt runs until August 18th. This great watch from Loordes of London called Killing Time has options for either wrist. If you’re obsessed by time wear both!

Finally, my backdrop, The Monkey Island, is a group gift from The Bearded Guy. The group costs $75L to join. Once you have the tag there is an entire wall of group gifts. If you take lot of photos you need to join this group. And of course a $30L gacha sale is underway before they all poof into the SL Magnetosphere.

Whew! I had a lot to say today!

Say Yes!

Capsule by Dad - Say Yes! Long Dress $75L Gacha @ Epiphany

Now if only someone would ask that question I could say YES to. Dang, I need a groom! I got this gorgeous wedding dress and no one to marry. No worries gang, this is just a story!

I Had an Epiphany at The Epiphany!

I’m really not a gacha fanatic, I only play them now & then. I decided to check out The Epiphany after I spied this dress in the gallery for this round ending on August 12th. It’s by a new to me designer, Capsule by DaD. At $75 per pull it’s a real bargain and I got the blush colored Say Yes! Long Dress on the first one!! SQUEE! (its my new favorite word, lol).

The dress is sized for Maitreya & Legacy with Perky versions for both.

A few years back on my first blogging adventure I thought about doing a post with all the free wedding attire I could find. Well, life happened and that never got done. Soooo, when I got this dress the light bulb in my head briefly shone brighter & I knew I had to show this.

Enjoy Fabbies!

XOXO,

Cre

Aloha from Paradise!

Creola Deledda EC Aloha_001

Yes, I’m back and feeling quite tropical! Hawaii is filled with natural wonders & beauty. When I put on this outfit my brain screamed ” HAWAII” and it made me want to HULA! I found Hawaii in SL and went for a visit. Sheesh, being able to teleport to Hawaii in real life would be so awesome. I could visit Hawaii every day!

Scoop up great gifts while visiting mermaids!

Free gifts from designers at birthday or anniversary rounds of events give you a taste of what a creator has to offer. The Under the Sea Event at Mermaid Cove put on by Evil Bunny Productions has free gifts galore with a free group join. The event runs until July 3rd. 

Aloha!

Aloha is a way of living and treating each other with love and respect. Its deep meaning starts by teaching ourselves to love our own beings first and afterwards to spread the love to others.

In the spirit of aloha Emerald Couture has this fab outfit complete with a halter top, sarong type skirt, bikini bottoms, and mules (sandals) out as an event gift. It’s light & breezy – perfect for the beach or exploring the islands. You can even do a hula dance in it!
