When is that dratted bus going to get here? I’ve been waiting for ages, and still nothing. At least the bus stop is kinda cute, right? I’ve always wanted to wait for the bus in a massive strawberry. It was totally on my bucket list, so at least I can cross that one off! Ok, I’ll stop. Promise.
Belle Epoque are currently celebrating their 7th anniversary with a fun hunt. Many designers are taking part, and every prize is completely free. Just search for the little cupcakes littered around the store, and you’re sure to find something you like. I picked up this lovely dress by Belle Epoque themselves, as well as the cute strawberry shaped bus stop behind me by Kei Spot. There are loads of great prizes, so do stop by and take part!
I wonder if the bus is stuck in a traffic….JAM. Get it? GET IT?
Happy Friday, Fabbies! I’m heading back to my roots of dark, gothy vibes. I’ve often ruminated on the fact that I started off my SL as Ms. Dark Cloud, swathing myself in black. It always makes me giggle a bit, since really – that is the antithesis of who I am. I’m the one who bursts into giggles at the mere mention of sausage (don’t ask), or tosses glitter about with wild abandon. Anyway, it just goes to show – you really can be exactly who you feel like being at any given time in Second Life. And I think that’s pretty great.
I put this look together with a few awesome freebies I picked up at SL19B. Now, we’ll be covering the event fairly extensively, as I know that not everyone is going to go to every single booth and pick up every gift and…gasp…unpack them. So, in the hopes you’ll see something you like, we’ll do a general smattering of lovely freegifts, and give you ideas of just what you can do with them. So…here’s my look:
Purples and lavenders always put me in a spiffing mood. You know, the kind of mood that makes me feel both relaxed and excited all at the same time. The magic of purple has been pretty present throughout most of my life, so the minute I get to dress in some form of head to toe purple, I jump at the chance!
The End is Near
The Fifty Linden Fridays Backyard Birthday Bash only has a day or two left for you to do some affordable fun shopping and pick up some amazing free gifts! I did a bit of a mix of things today – two paid and one free (join the freeFifty Linden Fridays group to get this one and the massive amount of other freebiestoo!) that I couldn’t possibly not show you. The outfit goes so well together, and it just makes me smile. Here are the details:
FREEpants by Ison sized for Freya, Legacy & Maitreya
50L top by Ison sized for Maitreya, Maitreya Petite & Legacy
It’s hot out today where I am – the kind of sticky hot that makes you uncomfortable in pretty much anything you wear. Luckily, Ms. Aline Passiflora is the unflappable type who can get away with doing insane things like wearing patent leather and latex in 35 degree (Celcius people…Celsius) weather, while nonchalantly holding a handful of sticky candy that by some miracle has not dissolved into an unfortunate goo in her palm. What can I say, she’s a pretty cool customer…. ahem.
Back to SL18B!
The madness that is SL18B rages on, and there are so many pretty things to show off that I had to put together yet another fun outfit to display my hoardings. As you may know, SL18B is running until July 6th, and you don’t need a group to get these freegifts, just buy them for 0L. Here’s what I’m being unflappable in today:
FREEtop by Stories & Co. (it’s actually half of a bikini…but rules are out the window) sized for Freya, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite,
FREEpants by Ison sized for Freya, Legacy & Maitreya
FREEshoes by Baiastice sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink
FREEgummy bears by Seka with left and right hand hold options
Things may have calmed down a bit (an eensy bit) since it’s been open a few days, so do enjoy! The above links will get you right to the designer booths, and if you’d like to have the whole list of every shop, you can find it right HERE

This post is filled with great deals that will help you achieve this fantastical owl look, so read further for the details! This post is chock full of freebies, so dig in for the free and magical fun my friends! 🦉
In this post, I am focusing on freebiesyou can find at Fantasy Faire 2021. I had to hunt hard to find these, as the event is massive- 22 sims in total! I will break down down some of free gifts I found at the Faire below.
The gorgeous owl mask is a free gift at Spyralle’s booth. Grab this little guy for 0L on the wall. This was a hard one to find, but it is so beautiful and intricate. What an amazing gift!
This beautiful hairstyle is a free gift at Firelight’s shop at the Faire. This hair is so cool, because it changes colour every minute to a different natural tone! There is also a free men’s hair gift in their booth!
The amazing shimmer on my body is a generous free gift from Ghoul. Just enter into their store at Valhalla and grab this gift in the middle of their display. This crystal shimmer is a materials applier that works on Legacy and Maitreya bodies only, as well as Lelutka Evolution heads. This applier can be used on Male and Female avatars.
Belle Epoque has a set of nails hidden in an object in their store at the Faire for free. Click the statue for the hint, and go hunt for it! The prize is a beautiful set of purple nails that work on Legacy and Maitreya bodies.
The Language of the Birds
Another way to hunt down some great deals at Fantasy Faire is to participate in their “Language of the Birds” hunt quest. Please read Juli’s post here to find out more details about how to play the Fantasy Faire Quest Hunt. By purchasing the quest HUD (it costs 250 L for the basic or 350L for the deluxe*), you are able to participate in the quest. The HUD can be purchased at Fantasy Faire Junction. If you solve the quest, you will receive a reward in the form of a bunch of gifts from various Fantasy Faire designers. The quest gift I am showing today is a set of beautiful floral horns made by EscalateD. These look like little floral branches that a little bird would stop to rest on!
The Quest hunt and the free gifts will be available until May 9th, the closing day of Fantasy Faire.
Other Freebies and Offers
My look today is packed with additional freebiesand offers from various places around the grid, so here are some more offers I am showing off today:
LSR currently has a 300L credit gift for all LSR group members. The group costs 99L to join. I bought this amazing dress I’ve had my eyes on for a while now. It’s called Yanikha Dress and it comes in 3 textured patterns. I purchased the dress in black and it was completely covered by the credit gift! The dress fits Legacy, Maitreya, Isis, Freya, and Hourglass. The 300L credit is only available until May 7th, so go get it quickly!
The rings I am wearing are a free gift at OVH that fit Legacy and Maitreya bodies. The group is free to join; just click the board and these lovely rings are yours! They include a HUD that allows you to change the colours of the metals and colours of the gems on the rings.
My blue fantasy skin is a free group gift at Lumae. This skin is made for Lelutka Evolution heads and you can get it for free at their store as a group gift. This skin is BOM and it fits Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Belleza bodies. The Lumae group is free to join.

You can change the colour of these babies to a myriad of colours via a hud and they can match pretty much anything in your wardrobe.

It feels a bit chilly out, doesn’t it? That slight pleasant nippiness to the air isn’t necessarily something to dislike, in fact it can be quite nice! To me, Fall is always a time of renewal, of beginnings, and of change. The trees reminding us all that letting go of the old really can be beautiful!
It’s the Kustom
Yay! It’s time again for my favourite event, Kustom9! I always find things I must have at this event, and this month is going to be even awesomer than usual since it’s their anniversary! 7 years old is certainly something to celebrate, and in the customary SL way – the giving of gifts – it is something I can really get behind. Every booth (or almost every!) has a gift for members of the free-to-join Kustom9 group. I picked up this fun sweater from Spirit (the sleeves are actually tied up behind my back…lol!) , which comes with an HUD that allows you to customize the colours of the sleeves and main panel, as well as this lovely pair of boots from Ison. The boots come with an HUD to change up the colours as well and they are sized for Freya, Legacy and Maitreya.
If you can’t get in right away, don’t despair – Kustom9 is running until November 10th. There’s also a Cam Sim to visit in case you can’t get into the Main Sim right away.

There have been so many lovely free builds recently inworld, that it’s giving me the itch to start decorating again. There’s something relaxing about letting your decorating itch run wild in SL. It can sometimes be fiddly editing things around the room, but in the end it’s so nice to have somewhere to call home inworld. And when you get sick of it, pick it all up and start over.
Hisa has a House!
Hisa are giving their group members this adorable little “English Garden” shed. It’s just so sweet and covered in riotous vines that I knew I had to have it right away. It’s the perfect spot for thinking, or maybe painting! Or maybe reading…or…perhaps just being. I’m contemplating the day in my own little world, and I’m sure you’ll be just as relaxed as I am when you get yours. Speaking of which, to get it, just join the Hisa group for 1L, then click on the vendor. How very sweet!
Posing with a Posie
La Vie en Pose is still continuing, and as I mentioned before, each booth has a freegiftie for members of their free-to-join group. I stopped by the Sweet Art booth, and they have this very lovely sitting pose which comes complete with a dasiy for you to contemplate the mysteries of the world. Or you know, look cute and stuff. La Vie en Pose is open until April 25th!
Have a relaxing day, Fab Free!
