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


Dinner for Two

Dinner for Two

I’m back and blushing, my dear FabFree readers!  It’s one of those days where I feel like romance is indeed not dead.  One of those days where I’m reveling in sweet words, kind gestures and whispered promises.  You can’t really beat that with a stick, unless you’re adding some freebies and even a romantic dinner for two.

Back at It

I do love showing off my favourite finds from Shop & Hop.  I realise that not everyone has the gumption to hit up 10 sims filled with people to get a pile of boxes filled with things that might not necessarily float their boat.  So, we do a bit of the sorting for you here on the blog, and then pick the standouts.  Here’s what I’m in love with today:

  • FREE dress by Stories & Co. sized for Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Legacy, Legacy Perky, Legacy Perky Petite
  • FREE biscuits by Movement
  • FREE table, chairs and romantic meal (check the steam coming off the pasta!) by ionic

You’ve got until February 15th to visit Shop & Hop, so no massive rush yet!  All the gifts are free, no group join required!  Yay!

Heart eyes to you all!

Tonight’s Plans

Tonight's Plans

New Year’s Eve festivities, here we come!  Though my RL festivities most often include a couch, a television and maybe a bit of spumante (sparkling Italian wine…I’m not reaaaally a champagne gal) at midnight.  So, I get to live it up inworld in sparkling gowns, high heels and whatever other accoutrement I can get my hands on!

Follow the Leeder

New-to-me designer Kiona Leeder of Kiona Clothing has some really pretty new group gifts out for members of their free to join group.  I picked up this amazing sparkling strapless gown with a slit up to there at their mainstore.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours – both plain and with sparkles, so you can pretty much party it up any time of year.  There are a few other free group gifts while you’re there too!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

Yummy!

Every year, I look forward to the free New Year’s Eve accessories from Yummy.  They didn’t disappoint this year with several awesome pairs of novelty glasses in different colours.  Some with Happy New Year written on them, and some with 2022.  They’re completely free, just click on the big gift in Yummy’s main store!

I hope your celebrations – whatever they look like – are FABULOUS!

Point me in the Direction of the Closest Nog

Point me in the Direction of the Closest Nog

This classy dame is ready for a night out, as you can see from my generally nonchalant demeanour and perfectly held candy cane.  I totally mean business!  And by business, I mean point me in the direction of the closest eggnog because I am ready for jollity!  (Clearly I may have had too much of said eggnog already…)

Hanging on the Boughs

Every year I totally look forward to Cosmopolitan’s Advent calendar.  The event has been doling out awesome gifts for the last several years, and they never disappoint!  You’ll find this amazing outfit by Seniha inside one of the decorations on the tree, as well as this really fun candy cane by ChicChica (I refuse to hold a candy cane any other way from henceforward).  The jumpsuit by Seniha has a very extensive HUD with some amazing sparkly textures in it for you to explore as well.  To get these awesome gifts (plus loooooads more gorgeous gifts), join the Cosmopolitan group for free, then click on the gifts hanging on the boughs of the tree by the front entrance of the event.  You HAVE to visit!

Serial Cereal Eater

Serial Cereal Eater

This seems like the opportune time to go on a rant about cereal.  I could ramble endlessly about the merits of this sugary breakfast treat over that… but really, why would I meander down the path of preferences in such an inelegant way?  Instead, I’ll just sit on this cart and buy a little bit of all of it.  Problem solved.

The Holy Pants

It’s hot out, right?  But you want to wear leggings, right!?!!  Another problem solved for you today courtesy of Spirit!  They’ve got this really fun top and leggings set out for free right now for members of the 7 Day Sale group, which is free to join.  This seems to be like a fairly new idea, so I hope it’s something that the group continues!  Anyway, you can wear the top and pants separately, making it a good mix and match option for your inventory.  Yay!

Feelin’ Cute

Feelin' Cute

I’m having one of those bubblegum and rainbow moments, and that usually involves someone taking me out for ice cream before I get pouty.  Easily fixed, of course, and happily my mood will return to nothing less than sunshiny the moment I get my triple scoop.

Beyond the Normal

There’s a new group gift at Beyond, and it totally set off my girly mood this morning.  It was just screaming “get out the pigtails” at me.  Who am I to ignore clothes when they yell at me?  Anywhos, the group is 50L to join, and you’ll be able to grab this cute top and shorts (they can be worn separately).  They come with an HUD to change to different pride hearts (or remove the heart entirely so it’s just a pink top).  It’s perfect for lounging around and looking super cute while doing it.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Right… strawberry or pralines and cream?  Hmm…

The Life of Leisure

The Life of Leisure

After all that adventure on the high seas, it’s time to settle down into a life of quiet in my backyard.  I’m just watching the morning glories grow, feeling that late spring sun on my skin and slowly swinging back and forth, taking it all in.  It’s nice to have adventure, but sometimes a gal has just got to chill out too.

In the Name of Love

There’s a new group gift at Belle Époque to celebrate Pride!  This cropped tank top is an excellent addition to any rainbow outfit, since it matches so well with shorts, skirts, jeans…you name it.  I got it by joining the Belle Époque group for just 10L, then clicking on the vendor.  There are always new goodies appearing, so this is an excellent group to be a part of!

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya Petite

Swing on Down

Speaking of Pride, check out this amazing rainbow swing chair that I got over at Kim’s Kreations!  I am pretty enamoured with the rainbow hues, of course, but it’s all just so cute and an excellent feature to add to any garden.  The crazy part is, it’s completely free!  Yeah…I know!  I got it by joining the Fantastic Mondays group, then clicking on the gift box right by it.  Fantastic Mondays is a new discount event where you’ll find a bunch of awesome items priced at 99L each week.  Excitingly, stores also have gifts out for members of the group, so check out the notecard that lists all the participants.  You can get it at Kim’s Kreations while you pick up this free gift!

Ah, this is the life!

Splish, Splash

Splish, Splash

It’s an easy breezy kind of day, FabFree!  I’m hanging out on the dock, eschewing reality with a firm hand.  I’m not usually one for swimming in lakes.  I had a run in with a snapping turtle once in my younger days, and I’ve never quite enjoyed their murky depths as I once did.  Instead, I just hang out on the dock looking fabulous and reading mind-edifying fashion magazines!

Feeling Blue…Berry!

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for the latest group gift from Blueberry, and it does NOT disappoint.  This super sweet frilly bikini is just one of the TWO awesome looks you’ll find lurking in group notices.  Splish and Splash are both gorgeous never-take-it-off-all-summer type of bikinis in a full fatpack of lovely hues.  Get this though, they ALSO happen to have a little wedgie option so that you can give a bit more of a peek of your assets.  Even better?  The little wedgie removal animation that comes with.  I was laughing for ages!  You can get yours by joining the Blueberry group for just 20L and checking in notices!  Love it!

To join the Blueberry group, just copy and paste this link in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/15a9ea63-fc80-0534-d878-1dab689ccafb/about

Exiled at Sea

Are you also in the  mood for some completely free and utterly charming hair?  I knew you’d say yes.  Exile have a new, free hairstyle out at The Free Dove!  It’s so perfect for a nice breezy day at the beach, and comes in a huge fatpack of colours.  You’re sure to find one that fits your look perfectly!  To get yours, join the Free Dove group for free, and click on the vendor in the hair section.  Yay!

Maybe I can also get some trashy novel reading done… it’s a rough life!

Buyer’s Remorse Need Not Apply

Buyer's Remorse Need Not Apply

Shopping never fails to get me into a better mood than I was.  I’m sure buyer’s remorse is a thing that plagues the masses after spending a bit of dough, but in the immortal words of Cher and Dionne from Clueless:

“Dude, what’s the matter? Are you suffering from buyer’s remorse or something?”
“Oh God no, nothing like that!”

And when the shopping’s free – no remorse required!

Beautiful, Dirty, Rich

There’s a new group gift at BDR!  That’s Beautiful, Dirty, Rich if you’re feeling proper.  I luuuurve when they come out with new free stuff, because it’s always awesome.  This top and shorts come with a huge pile of different colour and texture options in the HUD so that you can go from dark and moody (like me) to flowery and spring-like!  Join the BDR group for free, and this is alllll yours!

Strawberry Fields Forever

Strawberry Fields Forever

Strawberry Fields forever!  It’s time to revel in the sweet berries of the season, but I don’t know how long this deal will stick around, so I’ll save the waxing poetic for later!

Violence Solves Everything

There’s a fabulous deal over at Violent Seduction!  This lovely strawberry patterned dress (the RL version is going viral on the internet, btw) can be bought for just 50L in several different colours.  Again, I have no idea how long this will be available, so you may as well head over to Violent Seduction to pick it up as soon as possible!
