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


It’s Black, It’s White

It's Black, It's White

I had a little fun editing this picture. I usually don’t do much to my pictures here because I want you to be able to see what you’re looking at. But in this case I’m garbed entirely in black and white, so I figured we’re not losing anything. You’ll never guess what color the background was, though!

Monochrome

This fabulous tunic dress is one of the free group gifts at Amazing Creations. It hangs really cute and has a fun, artsy pattern. It comes in 5 classic sizes, XS-XL. The group is free to join and there are bunch of other gifts, including some nice ones for the guys.

Great Heels

You can never have enough pairs of really great heels. Love showed the ones that I’m wearing today already here. In my case, I have an overflowing shoes folder…and then I wander the grid barefoot the vast majority of the time. I really love these N-core shoes. They have a bit of a glitter to them, fur at the heel, and can change to 3 metallic shades. They’re one of the group gifts for to the N-core group. It costs 299L To join the group, but once you see the amazing collection of group gifts available at the store then you’ll understand why! The heels I’m wearing come sized for:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • N-core
  • Slink
  • TMP

Summertime, And The Livin’s Easy

Summertime, And The Livin's Easy

Do you know what I like even better than regular gifts? Unexpected surprise gifts! And that’s just what I found as I was browsing Designer Showcase. There are 4 gifts set out in front of Lavian&Co’s booth and they are all seriously fabulous. I had trouble deciding which one to show you today, but finally settled on this cute, casual look.

Summertime

How great is this little outfit? I tried to show you a bit of the back because the top is all untucked and adorable. The whole thing is one piece – the little white shorts don’t change (and why would I want them to, anyway) but the pretty, silky top can be changed to a bunch of different colors with the included HUD. To get the gifts you’ll need to join the free Designer Showcase VIP group and locate Lavian&Co’s set up at Designer Showcase. There you will find the 4 free group gifts that I mentioned earlier.

Morning Still Loves You Automatic

Morning Still Loves You Automatic

You would never guess from my most recent few posts here that I got a beautiful new skin that I’m in love with. I’ve shown it exactly one time…from the back. There are just so many lovely skins around, how can a girl be expected to commit to just one? Even a gorgeous one that stole her heart? Are we still talking about skins? Yes, most definitely!

The Skin I’m In

Isn’t it pretty? It’s the newest group gift from 7 Deadly s[K]ins. I love a store with a cute puny name. Especially when said store gives out a free skin each month to their group members! There is 225L fee to join the group and it’s totally worth it.

Vestir Bonita

I am shocked that my high school Spanish classes stuck with me enough to form the above phrase, although I’ll admit that I gave it a quick google to make sure I was correct. This vestir bonita is a free gift at the Sense event, which ends soon on June 8th. There are a few gifts there available to different groups. To get the lovely layered dress that I’m wearing here, you’ll just need to join the Mejora tu Apariencia group (it’s free to join).

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus

Still Got Mad Love For You Baby

Still Got Mad Love For You Baby

It’s proving to be a busy weekend between Memorial Day stuff and all of the graduation parties, but I wanted to sneak in a quick post here in honor of what I believe to be the unsung hero of any outfit – appliers. We go on about hair and clothes, but what’s there behind it all, holding everything together? Appliers. You could even say that I have “mad love” for appliers. See what I did there? The blog title total fits now and couldn’t possibly just be a song that I’ve been listening to a lot lately.

New Ink

I love a good tattoo and this one is soooooo pretty. And FREE, which obviously makes it even better! It’s a new group gift from Lush. You know the routine…join Lush’s free group and go to their store to pick up the prettiness. Easy peasy.

Makeup Too

Sintiklia has a box of free stuff in their store too. Well actually it’s 1L but same difference, right? This one doesn’t even require a group join, just buy the gift wrapped box that’s sitting on the front desk. You’ll get this eyeshadow and lipstick, as well as a smattering of other good stuff like hair and eyes.

Elikatira’s 75L Hair Sale

Snapshot_007Hi Fabulouses!!  Like the hair I am wearing today? This is Edyta by Elikatira and it is currently on sale for 75L… in fact… THE ENTIRE Elikatira STORE is on sale for 75L (single packs – not fatpacks) for a limited time.  This sale even includes newer releases and the essentials packs that contain several different types of hair colour shades in case you  jump around a little.  Sometimes I like to wear a light brown instead of a blonde, so I for one appreciate these essential packs!
Moving Sale

Note from Elika Tiramisu (from Flickr):
“Hi! I’m moving at the last minute and won’t be around for a while so I’m having a sale until I return. My hubby got out of the military and we’re going across the country (with 3 kids AHHH) for his new job and we have barely 2 weeks notice. So since I will be MIA for a while I decided to have a sale. Be back soon!”

Last Lucid Dreams of a Sweet Summer

Summer has passed into fall… but my last lucid dreams of summer have not yet quite faded. And thanks to the final days of the Women’s Stuff Hunt, you too can relive the final dreamer’s dreams of evening stars and soft flowers. With the hunting closing down on September 30th, though, you’ll want to hurry if you are going to find any gifts from your favorite stores.

Last Lucid Dream of Sweet Summer

I love the chance to pick up new poses — especially those with ‘ready made scenes’ such as this “Lucid Dream” scene by Come Soon Poses. It includes all the lovely props, the single pose for your avatar (as shown above), plus the pink heart balloons that are just flying away out of Astrid’s hands (which you can’t see in the picture). This is a completely FREE gift from Come Soon Poses as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and well worth the searching for the die hard photographer (and for the rest of us too)!

Speaking of FREE gifts… check out my spunky skirt and sexy slip-on tube top from Sweet Temptations called September Morning! This is the September Group Gift from their main store and you can pick it up FREE with your Group tag until the end of the month. The group is FREE to join and there are only a few days left in September, so swing by and pick it up quick! The skirt is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, while the top comes in system layers as well as a variety of applier huds for mesh bodies.

Astrid’s fantastic purse is perfect for any casual or fun occasion and has a hold animation that works great with your AO and any other pose. It’s another one you’ll need to run to hunt for before the end of the month as it is part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and is the 1L Hunt Gift offering from Pixel Perfect Productions called Give a Hoot Purse. And it’s a hoot if I don’t say so myself!

Last Lucid Dream of Sweet Summer [2]

I love trying on new skins and as I was doing my run through the Women’s Stuff Hunt, I found this ‘New-to-Me’ Skin store called LoveMe skins. Their Hunt Prize is this lovely skin in Sunkiss called Jessica. Once you find the little red shirt, the skin is yours for just 1L and includes a cleavage layer as well.

Now the Hunt gift does not include any appliers; however, there is a group gift up in the store as well. The group gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join and if you pick up the group gift it includes Slink hands and feet appliers (all skin tones included) so you’ll have those — very generous of the creator I think! That will give you two new skins plus the Slink appliers for your visit. You can also purchase any other additional appliers you may decide you need while at the store.

Last, but certainly not least, Astrid is sporting an elegant but every day set of jewelry that I think is a perfect transition from summer to fall — summery colors in a fall design! I love this Wine Autumn Leaves Jewelry Set by Cog & Fleur which is their Women’s Stuff Hunt Gift contribution and yours if you find the little red T-shirt for just 1L! Don’t miss out on the chance to add this dandy to your jewelry box!

Flowers in Your Hair

Snapshot_002

Good evening Fabulous readers!!  Yup…  sad but true – this is one of my favourite things to do in Second Life… Find a patch of flowers, and dance in them!  Call me crazy, but it makes me happy!  You know what else makes me happy?  Awesome gifts!!  Tonight I am wearing a very special Goodbye Gift from e! Eclectic Apparel.  Eclectic has placed out the Aria Dress as a free gift for everyone in this sweet springy lavender shade.  It does also come with a HUD that allows for bow and belt texture change.

The Intrepid Rose Halos can be found at The Luck of The Irish Gacha Fair for just 35L per play.  These are a very pretty spring accessory.  Now of course they are supposed to be flowers in your hair *sings like the Lumineers* (this is the song I am talking about), but I loved them so much that I’m just wearing them everywhere 😉

e! Eclectic Apparel Closing Sale

Snapshot_002
Good morning Fabulouses. I am afraid I have some sad news.  Eclectic Wingtips of e! Eclectic Apparel has decided it’s time to close down the inworld shop as RL has become busier.  She sent out a notice yesterday stating that the marketplace store will remain open, so thankfully we will still be able to purchase her amazing mesh creations!  With this news, she has announced that there is a huge sale instore for the next few weeks in which everything is just 75L.

I am a big fan of e! designs, and keep several in my inventory to wear even when I am not blogging.  I imagine I will be making a few trips to the sale before it’s over!  Today I am wearing the Georgina Dress in the shade of Latte, which is available as mentioned above for just 75L.

I have accessorized my dress with some awesome Pure Poison finds.  My Rabbit Clutch can be found at this round of Fashion Limited for 150L, and last I checked there were only 12 black left for purchase.  The newly released Loly Slink Add-on Sandals are available at a group discount of 75L for the black pair (other colours available at 150L each)!  My Bow Tie Swirls Necklace is a brand new group gift that Pure Poison has added to their GIANT gift section.  (still free to join)!!

Well… It appears I am WAY to slow of a blogger lol, because I didn’t get this done in time for you to take advantage of this great gift that was out for Valentine’s Day at e! Eclectic Apparel.  I apologize!!  Unfortunately this cute dress is no longer available, but I can still share with you news of the cute necklace I am wearing.  At The Thrift Shop you can pick up the Dragon Heart Necklace made by Phoebe Piercings & More for free!
