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


Sugar Me Sweet

Sugar Me Sweet
I’m feeling very sweet and girly today, friends. You see, I stopped by Candy Kitten to check if anything new was afoot. While I was there, I won on the lucky boards! And then one thing led to another and this delish milkshake was in my hand. Very sweet, indeed.

Candy

I don’t usually associate Candy Kitten with girly but this dress is just that, while still bringing the sexy that I do associate with Candy Kitten. It’s prettily sexy from the floral pattern down to the dainty little details. You’ll need to have on your group tag in order to claim your prize when your letter comes up on the lucky board. The group is 400L to join and it’s definitely one worth being in.

Sizes:

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
OH! I also spied a 300L store credit for group members while I was there. By the group gifts just to the left of the lucky boards, you’ll find a 300L gift card on sale for a measly 1L. There’s most of your group join fee back right there. And here’s another tip: the credit doesn’t expire AND you can use it on discounted sale items. Candy Kitten always participates in the weekend sales so I like to hold on to my gift cards and pop in over the weekend to get even more bang for my buck!

Ice Cream

The anniversary rounds of Cosmopolitan are over, but there are always a couple of free gifts out at this event. A new round just started and I picked up this free milkshake by ChicChica! There’s one to hold in your left hand, one for your right hand, or you could always hold both at once – if it’s a day when you feel the need to double fist a milkshake. I won’t judge!
Cosmopolitan lasts till June 11th and the other free gift is a pretty (and large) pink flower garden that almost made it’s way into the back of my photograph as well. You’ll just need to join the event group for free and click the easels on either side of the doors for the free gifts.

Hey fabbies,

I’ve been delving into the world of geneology in my real life.  Fascinating stuff, really.  Especially for a girl who was adopted and never knew her heritage growing up.  Turns out I am mostly British, Irish and Scottish (DNA), which may explain my love of castles.  Speaking of castles, check out my new buddy.  He may look scary but he is really just one of those gargoyles from Notre Dame voiced by Jason Alexander (You know, George from Seinfeld).  He says “Ooh La La“.  Still, you don’t meet a guy like him every day.

Ok for reals, this is another of those amazing pose props from Le Poppycock (75L a play Nextup!).  I tell ya’ she has got some mighty fun stuff.

My dress is a group gift from UNA that comes in a fatpack of colors as a free group gift.  The group there is 50L to join but she has a plethora of goodies for you on the wall for your small join fee.  This dress fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Ebody

Ah well, my eyes are mad at me for staring at this screen for far too long today, so I suppose it is time to come down from my belltower and post this.

Let Me Play Among The Stars

Let Me Play Among the Stars

Happy weekend, Fab to the Free! We made it! I don’t know about you, but I’m going to celebrate with some weekend sale shopping. I’ve already picked up a couple of things and I’m about to head out and see what else is out there. My favorite resource for various day-of-the-week sale shopping is seraphimsl.com – it’s so handy to see everything in one place with the galleries and whatnot.

Meow

I snatched up this super sexy and well made top and shorts at Candy Kitten. They were only 60L each as part of the Happy Weekend and if you’d prefer different colors there are a handful of others to pick from as well. Yes, please. Each comes in sizes for:

  • Ebody
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Bell Bell

Once again I did not think through my subtitle strategy. A youtube video for children that popped up in my quick google search says that deer say “Bell Bell.”  So here we are at Bell Bell… Because I got the cuuuuute hair that I’m wearing over at Doe for 50L Friday. Only 50L for some really nice color packs full of variety. Yes, please, again!

Pretty good start to the weekend, huh? See you at the sales!

I Want Candy

Candy Girl

Hey gang!

It’s the last week of Cozyfest so I wanted to sneak in two more of my amazing 50L finds.  I’ve been hermiting the last day or two watching a blizzard dump snow on my rl home.  We have a good foot and a half, and its a whopping 15 degrees and still pretty windy at about 19 mph (wind chill of 3 degrees) as I write this, so I’ve just had some of the chocolate chip cookies I baked today and some hot chocolate with rum to warm up a bit.

My second life self has been enjoying some of the same, some chocolate bars and donuts on a stick for her (made me wonder how you keep the donut from falling off the stick once you have eaten a decent amount of it.  I would think it would take a tumble right off.)  Either way I’m just a gal with a sweet tooth, and I do love those candy bright colors too.  So let’s get to the goodies I found for you, neither of which have anything to do with bright colors or candy!  Huh.  Go figure!

Let’s talk about these amazing boots.  These boots are from Friday at Cozyfest, they are of course 50L and you have the option to wear them without the lights but I got them *for* the lights cause if I could just drape myself in glitter and fairylights, well.  That might be downright blissful.  They fit:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Now the build I am standing in is by Lemme, also 50L at Cozyfest.  This cute pink cabin comes in a lighter pink or a darker pink and is just super cozy and cute.  It was pink, so how could I say no?  Like Aline, I have a bit of a fetish for houses and buildings, a girl can just never have enough!  Add pink in that mix and well, you’ve got me doing some heavy breathing!  I chose the lighter pink one, the shade just appealed to me more, but I absolutely adore it!

Now, back to my yummy warm drink and perhaps a nibble more of the cookies!  Hope y’all are staying toasty too!

Trippy Daydream or … What was in that Tea?!

And the story goes... I was having my tea with a sheep one morning...

And the story goes… I was having my tea with a rather solemn sheep one morning…

…when a little bird whispered some goodies in my ear and I hastily gulped down my tea, fell asleep leaning against the sheep and dreamed I was shopping!

Of course I was drinking my tea out of a cute kitty cat mug from LuluB which is a freebie at Cozyfest (well, what’s cozier than a steaming cup of tea, hm?  Hot chocolate perhaps is cozier, says I!) you do need to have your Fifty Linden Fridays group active, but that too is free to achieve.

And oh my gosh I needed some cute shoes, so that my week little pink piggies would be happy!  And they are blissfully happy because I found these adorbs shoes (and the piggies get to peek out!  Squee!) on market from Higgle (a perfect name when you are buying shoes to make your little piggie digits happy), and they cost me exactly… 1 whole entire whopping linden!

These cute shoes (there’s a better look at them below) come with a HUD giving you ten delicious color choices and they fit:

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

When I woke from the dream, the little birdie had gone, my tea was done and I stood back up, thanking the sheep for helping me with my strange slumber…

And the story ends with….. I saw some balloons floating by so I grabbed a hold, they lifted me up to the sky and that’s when the rainbow appeared.

Stepping into 2022

dd fp_008

Hey Fabbies!

So we finally made it to 2022!  Time to recuperate, regroup and kick this new year into gear!

New years came with mixed feelings for a lot of us, with the loss of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl, Betty White.  Here we were all waiting to celebrate 100 with her, she was an amazing spirit and how awesome the world would be if there were more like her running around!  Making people laugh and  doing all good things for animals….  ah well.  I’ve loved her since I was a teen (a longggg time ago!).  Rest in the midst of all the animal spirits Ms. Betty!  ❤

A cute comfy dress and some nifty boots.

My super cute dress is a free group gift from Aurica.  The group is also free to join, and there are numerous group gifts for you on the wall along with this one.  You have the option of wearing it with the lights or without, but I’m such a sucker for anything colorful and sparkly so I left them!  This dress fits:

  • E-Reborn
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

My awesome tall boots are a promo from StephaneL.  They are only 60L and come with an extensive HUD for you to play with.  They fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Lastly, my toasty warm drink is a New Years group gift from Satus, Inc.  because, you know, you can’t possibly start a new year properly without caffeine!  Both the gift and the group are free.

PS… its *kind* of my one year Fab Free anniversary!  Yay!

It’s Snowing!

It's Snowing!

It’s snowing!  Once in a while I find a spot inworld that has very peaceful snow falling and some twinkling lights, and suddenly I feel all peaceful and relaxed!  Just such a blanket of calming snow covers the It’s Snowing sim, so it’s quite fun to explore.  Do check it out!

Up Top

Right, who here is in the mood for some free hair?  Oh really?  That many of you?  Oh alright then, I’ll tell you how to grab this really cool fatpack of hair PLUS hat from Doe!  If you join their free group, you’ll find a little display outside of the front of the store with the Light Up My Christmas hair.  Pay 100L for it, and it will be immediately refunded if you’re wearing the Doe group tag.  (Make sure you have it active!).   Not sure how long this one will be out, so head on over!

Still Hopping

Shop and Hop rages on, and this amazing sweater from Tetra has been in all my feeds all over the place.  I’ve seen so many bloggers and photographers donning it.  With good reason – it’s completely lovely.  So realistic, and completely jolly.  It comes in two versions, a loose waist to go over pants and a tighter one for leggings etc.  No need to join a group here, just grab it for free at the Tetra booth at Shop & Hop.

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?  At the very least are you somewhat paying attention?  Well, good… cuz it’s time for more gorgeous gifts this season!

Just a Little Slip

This pretty and very silk-like dress comes to you straight from Maai.  They’re celebrating a new location with some new group gifts!  Their group is free to join, and with it you can pick up this pretty turquoise slip dress.  There are some other gifts for other groups there as well, so check those out while you’re at it because they’ve been recently updated as well.

Shocking!

This little string of lights in my mouth (we used to call them mouthies, but no clue if that’s still a term that’s in fashion… 😉 ) is the latest group gift from Doe.  The little lights wink and glimmer as they hang artfully between your lips.  It comes with an HUD to change the string colour, and the lights, so you can switch it up rather easily.  Very fun, just don’t get electrocuted, mmkay?  The Doe group is free to join, and you’ll find this gift on their main counter.

Zap!

I added another Shop & Hop gift to my look tonight. My jewelry is from Zuri and t’s their free gift for us.

My seductive pose is yet another free gift at the Shop & Hop. This is “Nezuko” from Fashiowl and it’s one of three gifts in their present. Two of the gifts are full fatpacks of poses and props and one is a single pose with Halloween props. I just love adding to my pose collection!

Before and After

IMG_2289

Cheerio gang!

This post is not your typical before and after.  Oh gosh I *do* love me a before and after, you know when they do makeovers?  It is one of my fondest wishes to one day get a makeover by professionals.  Alas.  But I love a makeover, it’s always so exciting to see what changes they make and how awesome whomever or whatever they were working on came out!

This is kind of a reverse before and after to showcase the awesome goodies I got at the Arcade Event, courtesy of Pare’.  Now, if you want to get all the juicy details of how the new system at the arcade works, I spelled it all out in my previous post here.  With that out of the way, let’s get on to the fun stuff, the goodies!  The machine for Pare’ is called Night Crawlers and is 75L a play and I had to come back on subsequent days to get both the outfits I was lucky enough to grab.  The above was the pink, which I love.  The below photo shows the Halloween version which I was lucky enough to get on my second day try.  I was originally going to just blog the pink one, but when I got the Halloween one as well, I couldn’t resist combining the two.

So, what exactly do I call my before and after?  The first photo, above, is before the Zombie Apocalypse, the second photo before is, well, after, obviously, and our brave heroine can tell she has become outnumbered and she is about to become Zombie herself.  Notice how she is biting her lip in distress?  So she has gone from geek chic to zombie hunter.

As I stated in my previous post, you choose the size you want to play for in the machine and I chose Maitreya Lara as that is what I wear.

Lessons learned by our lovely heroine… a gun works better than an axe when fighting zombies.  Unfortunately.

The End
