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


Purple Power

Purple Power
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 free Fifty Linden Fridays group to get this one and the massive amount of other freebies too!) that I couldn’t possibly not show you.  The outfit goes so well together, and it just makes me smile.  Here are the details:

  • FREE pants by Ison sized for Freya, Legacy & Maitreya
  • 50L top by Ison sized for Maitreya, Maitreya Petite & Legacy
  • 50L headband by Quirky

You’ve only got until September 3rd to snap up all the deals and freebies at the FLF Backyard Birthday Bash – so get to it!

PURPLE!

Sticky Sweet Heat

Sticky Sweet Heat

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 free gifts, just buy them for 0L.  Here’s what I’m being unflappable in today:

  • FREE top by Stories & Co. (it’s actually half of a bikini…but rules are out the window) sized for Freya, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite,
  • FREE pants by Ison sized for Freya, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE shoes by Baiastice sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink
  • FREE gummy 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

The Owlery

bird pic_0043489u

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! 🦉

Free Gifts @ Fantasy Faire

In this post, I am focusing on freebies you 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.

The Fairlands Quest is live!

Other Freebies and Offers

My look today is packed with additional freebies and 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.

Falling For Fall

Falling for Fall

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.

Sweater Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink Original

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.

Enjoy!

Contemplation

Contemplation 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 free giftie 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!

We’re All in This Together

We're All in This Together

Hey Fab Free!  I’m so glad you’re here today.  We may be in a crazy situation – the lot of us – but we’re gonna make it through, I just know it.  I’m happily spending my time doing things that I put off normally, like cleaning out my inventory, sharing my unwanted gachas with the world, and even discovering new places in SL.  We SL residents are pretty fortunate to be able to travel from the comfort of our own homes, don’t you think?

Barbie B

I’ve got you heading all over the grid to put together a cute look today, and our first stop for this FREE top is over at Beautiful Dirty Rich.  You can get this sweet little cropped tank by joining the SLFO group for free and clicking on the vendor.  It comes with several different textures (I went for the barbie one, because ugh, so cute).  Fun!

Sizes

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

It’s in the Bag

Ison has a new group gift right now, and it’s this fun little fanny pack (and yes, I know not everyone calls it a fanny pack in the world -so sorry if I’ve offended your sensibilities!  lol!).  I grabbed it for free by joining their free group.  It comes sized for Freya, Legacy and Maitreya with several different colour options.

What’s Up Top?

Finally, the hair I’ve got on is an oldie but a goodie by DPYumYum.  They have a bunch of their older group gifts out still available, and I couldn’t resist the bright colours of this headband!  The hair comes in this golden strawberry blondish hue, which makes me think of summer.  To get it, all you have to do is join the DPYumYum group for free and head to their gift section.  You’ll find a few other hairdos you may like there too!

We’re all in this together Fab readers, let’s at least make it enjoyable!
