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


Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

There’s not much more I love in this world than puppies and horses.  Seriously, I could leave nearly all the human race behind and be on an island of puppies and horses, I would be one happy chickie!  Honestly, I talk more to animals, plants and inanimate objects than I do to other people most of the time!

Can you spell I N T R O V E R T?  lol!

Anyhoo!  Another thing I love is cute clothes that I can get for cheap or even better free!  Today I’ve got a super cheap cute outfit for you from Cremosas Store who is one of out Fab Free designers.  It is one of many in her store, this one is a romper that is overall style and soooooo cute for summertime!  This cute ensemble will cost you only 25L!  They do come in lots of different colors, but I chose purple.

It fits:

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

Well How do You Hang YOUR Chandeliers???

giraffe_002

Geordi (the Giraffe) always holds the chandelier for me when I dance.

He’d like to dance too but he can’t

So he always makes sure the lighting is decadent

Hey gang,

Got a super fun (and cute!) gacha for you today courtesy of our friends at MoOH!  This is the Animal Lamps Gacha which costs 50L a play over at Nerdcon.  (Nerdcon runs until July 31, so you have lots of time to shop.)

My giraffe friend here is a rare but oh my gosh are there some seriously cute goodies in this, the mice with lightbulbs?  Are you kidding me????  Sooooo squeeeeeable!  They are so cute I could just eat them!!!  But I won’t.

You absolutely must go and play this (yes I am bossing you!) because everyone really needs at least one animal in their sl world holding a light for them.  They just make you smile, and who couldn’t use an extra smile or two?  Here is the key:

MOoH! Animal lamps gacha

I definitely think my blogging desk needs a mouse on it with a light, and perhaps one at the Fab Free Headquarters too.  Hmmmmm

I’m off to decorate with some cuteness!  Happy Tuesday y’all!

Rise and Shine Fab Fam!

It’s Sundayyyyyy!  You know what that means!  It means it is #sokawaiisundays!  Woot!  It also means that you only have TODAY to scoop up these deals so no dillying… or dallying!  Y’all just better RUN!

I ran and I scored this adorbs dress from ALTAIR (gosh I love their stuff!), which made me feel like a kawaii snow white!  Of course to match the cute little stars on their dress I had to grab the cute Moon Headband from Just Yaska (ok, so I admit I am a fiend for anything celestial themed… sun, moon, stars… Saturn!  OMG Saturn!!!!  LOL  You know we Fab Free folks can be obsessive right? (who us????) Oh but we do so love what we love!).  Both items are 65L each, so I spent a whopping 130L total for such cuteness.  My oh my!  *fans self* I may just faint!

The dress comes in Maitreya size and includes a choice of cute hairbows (but I opted for the headband for this photo, obv.) and also a shirtless version of the dress which turns it into a cute summer spaghetti strap dress.   The super fab headband is a fatpack and comes with a HUD that has five choices each for the moon and star, the little stars and the headband itself.

There are dozens of goodies for 65L (see the gallery here) and don’t forget the free skin from Velour (which I LOVE and have been using lately with my Lelutka Evo Nova head, including this photo) that is a #sokawaiisundays gift.

See you next time gang, when I won’t be wearing the stars but reaching for them in a sweet group gift!

Starry eyed & Fancy free at home!

Feeling Cute

blog 010921_007

Hello again Fabbies!

You know those days when if you could just feel *cute*, then everything would be just hunky dory?  Like, you’re not in the mood to exert the energy to strive for stunning or drop dead gorgeous, but if you can still be cute, well that’s just fine!  Cute is always a good thing.

That’s exactly how this dress from Seniha made me feel, just perfectly cute.  Perfectly cute and waiting (not so patiently!) for spring.  I found this dress at the Orsy Event, which goes until the end of the month.  It is a group gift for the event group, which is free to join and its made by Seniha.  It comes in three dark pink patterns, and it makes you feel hella cute!

Pair it up with this group gift hair from DP YumYum (group is free to join) and you are set to rock that cute look! 

The dress comes in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Better, warmer, sunnier days are coming my friends! We will all get there! In the meantime, stay safe and stay cute! 

Pups & Kitties!

❤ Arielle

Fab Free Designer of the Week – BonBon

Hello hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! It’s been time for a “Designer of the Week” style post for a minute now, so for today I’m happy to share with you BonBon. First, I want to point out that the grounds surrounding the BonBon main location are just beautiful. Definitely take a little time when you’re there to look around a bit. That said, BonBon is a cute little shop which mostly sells female hairstyles. The style of BonBon is very doll-like and cute, the term kawaii definitely comes to mind although there are plenty of hairstyles that could fit any look.

Along with the feminine hairstyles, you’ll find a few makeup items, and some equally doll-like clothing and accessories in gacha machines. Inside the entrance you’ll see the “circulation desk” as I call it, where you can access all of BonBon’s social media and the store group. Right now there are quite a few BonBon group gifts available, they are conveniently lined up on a shelf above the desk. You’ll also notice some of the gifts have a heart above them. One of those gifts is the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift, which you’ll likely recall seeing this super cute style in Aline’s post “Stay Safe.” There is also a free gift that is available exclusively on the Marketplace. Aline also showed us that gift in her pose “I Sparkle I Shine.” In addition to the gifts being displayed above the desk, the most recent of the gifts along with the Fabulously Free in SL gift are also available on the wall opposite the desk. To get the Fab Free group gift you will need the Fabulously Free in SL group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. For the BonBon group gifts, you’ll need to join the BonBon store group which does have a one-time join fee of 99 linden. Which when you consider the number of available group gifts, is still a pretty great deal. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Sleepy Kitty

Sleepy Kitty
Hi There Fab Free’rs! Does anyone else have random bouts of insomnia? I know I cannot be the only one! Despite being sleepy the next day I can’t be mad about staying up late, it lead me to find some cute gifts from Kuni and Pink Pearl Designs to share with you.

Hair & Headband – How sweet is this sleek long hairstyle with the cute kitty-eared headband?! You can pick up this FREE group gift at Kuni. You will need to join the Kuni group, however it is FREE to join. This gift includes the hairstyle in 3 sizes, the kitty headband, a texture change hud for the headband, and 2 color huds for the hairstyle with tons of color options.

Tank & Boy Briefs – The waistband of these boy brief style undies says it all! This tank and underwear combo is just cute. To get your copy of this FREE gift you’ll need to take a trip to Pink Pearl Designs. There you’ll see this gift offered to La Femme Fatale Designer group members. This group is FREE to join. Once you have your La Femme Fatale Designer group tag on you can click the little pink gift bag and your gift will be sent to you. The gift comes in several mesh sizes and though the gift is titled “Dark Dayz Fat Pack” mine only included a pastel color hud. I am sure this is just a mistake of some kind, but I was not bothered by it. After all it is still a FREE gift and it is very cute.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

**P.S. The cute sleepy pose I’m using for the photo in this post is part of a pack of “sleepy” static poses by YoGa that you can pick up for just 50 linden on the Marketplace!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Cute Roses

Rose
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share more of my finds from the Cart Sale going on at The Wash. Aside from the obvious allure of completely affordable prices, a big draw to the Cart Sales put on at The Wash for me is the opportunity to try out shops I’m not super familiar with. One such shop is Dark Water Designs. Along with some very cute casual ladies clothing, they had some casual menswear at the Dark Water Designs cart. I picked up the flirty fringe top, and a cute jogger set. Keep reading for the details!

A Rose by Any Other Name

This pretty halter top with the rose appliques and the fringe was too cute to pass up at the Dark Water Designs cart. It comes in one other color (sold separately). It also fits really well, and comes in many mesh sizes. There is also an alpha layer included with this top so it is suitable for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included:  Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Cute
Cute as Can Be

The other item I picked up at the Dark Water Designs cart, and I’m glad I did, is this “Cute” jogger set. The set includes the hooded jacket and matching jogger style pants in pink and black. This two-piece outfit comes in several mesh sizes, and the jacket and pants can also be worn separately. Additionally there are alpha layers for the jacket and pants so they can be worn by classic avatars. I love the detail in the lettering across the back. It really is very cute!

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Sugar Lips

Sugar Lips 1

Hey Fab Free!

It’s always fun to get free makeup, because you get to try out some fun looks that you might not usually choose for yourself!  My recent visit to the Candy Fair brought me just such an opportunity, as I picked up a few fun little gifties! You can see the other gifts I picked up HERE.

Sugar-Sweet

My sparkly, sugary lipstick was a fun free gift from Pout! at the Candy Fair It comes in several different shades, and I think it looks quite fun for a night out with friends!  This lipstick comes with an applier for both Catwa and Lelutka.

Macaron Madness

Another little gift at the Candy Fair was the pretty nail polish applier from alaskametro.  I’ve only shown one of the options available, but there are a total of 15 different nail designs, all inspired by my fave french patisserie – the macaron!  This free gift comes with nail appliers for Maitreya and Slink, and there’s an Omega applier in there for good measure!  Here’s a close up of my nails for ya!

Sugar Lips 2

Pocket full of Poses

Last but not least, I always enjoy a good bento pose.  I love the way your fingers can get expressive!  This pose from Foxcity is only 1L on the marketplace!  Super cute!  You can grab this pose right here:

Well, Fab Free – I’d like to wish our American readers a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Although I’ve already celebrated Thanksgiving this year (up here in Canadaland!) I’m very thankful to be part of this awesome blogging family – thank YOU all for welcoming me so warmly.
