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


The Quest for Carbs

The Quest for Carbs

There was a thing I used to do on weekends that would totally get me through the rest of the week back in the early 2000’s.  I’d hop on the subway, head downtown to the mall, buy a bunch of stuff I didn’t need (it was often some form of fun costume jewelry, a t-shirt I didn’t need and possibly some butterfly-shaped hairclips…but anyway) then head to get some horribly unhealthy food.  Wouldn’t that be nice right about now?

Don’t be Jelly

There’s a new group gift at Envious!  The shirt, dress, garter and shoes all come in this generous group gift and even better, the group is currently free to join!  I’m not sure for how long, since it actually says the price will go up November 3rd…so hop on this while you can before it changes!

Update:  Looks like this group will be free to join until November 30th!  The date in the inworld group was just a typo!  Yay!

In the Bag

Memoire also has a new gift out, and it’s this fun little purse.  It’s shaped like a Happy Meal, which is kinda awesome, really.  I think that’s what made me think of trips downtown to eat copious amounts of trans fats.  Anywho, the group is free to join, and the bag comes in a bunch of different colours too.  Sweet!

I think fries come with this shake!

Optical Illusion

Optical Illusion

Ok, I know I’ve been doing a lot of dark and Halloweeny, but now and then a pop of colour is needed.  I’m sure some readers out there also long for it, so this post is for you!

Now I’m Free

Did you know that The Free Dove gets updated regularly?  There’s always something new for you at SL’s premier freebie outlet.  The owner and organizer, Dove, works really hard to procure free and fabulous finds for the Second Life community.  You can find all the latest updates listed on their blog HERE.  This striking gown from Tiffany Designs is a new addition, and it really makes me think of those optical illusion books that were so hot in the 90’s.  I can’t even remember what they were called (please don’t let it be “optical illusion books”, because that would be semi-embarrassing).  On the same table, you’ll find a matching jewelry set for free, and a pair of shoes (not pictured) that go with the look perfectly.  To get them, and a bajillion other free items, just join The Free Dove group for free!

Je Vois La Vie en Pose

A new round of La Vie en Pose has taken off, and as per usual the designers are spoiling us with free gifts!  Join the La Vie en Pose group for free, and you’ll be able to pick up a free gift from each stall.  There are some really cute poses, and this one from Lyrium is quite different in the fact that it is more of an animation than a pose.  It cycles through a selection of cute movements that are super fun to take pictures of, and are really quite adorable.  There’s lots more!  Head over to La Vie en Pose before October 25th when it all goes aurevoir!

Bye for now!

Horror Vibes

Horror Vibes

Hello hello Fab Free’rs, of the many many things I love about what I like to call Halloween season are the scary movies. I’m particularly fond of classic horror, and I can’t help but love the horror comedy smashup that is Young Frankenstein. What does all of that have to do with this post? Why the pillows of course! I have a few fabulous freebie finds to share for this post. I hope you like them.

MoonPhase

These too-cool-for-words pillows and the cheeky embroidery wall art pieces are a free group gift at MoonPhase. These decor items are all every bit as awesome in person as they are in photos. The MoonPhase group is free to join. Also, there are other free group gifts available.
Moonphase Freegroup Gift!

ChicModa

In addition to the fantastic decor items, I picked up the latest group gift at ChicModa. My cropped tee reads “Drink Up Witches” and I think it is so so cute. The ChicModa group is free to join for a limited time, so do not wait to join!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, MeshBody Legacy
ChicModa Group Gift // Drink Up Witches Top
Project Crystal’s Fashion

Lastly, a new-to-me shop called Project Crystal’s Fashion has a pair of perfect-for Halloween body suits for just 1 linden on the Marketplace. I did attempt to find an in-world location, but was unsuccessful. I’ve always liked the idea of wearing certain more lingerie-like pieces as outerwear in a fashion sense. This is for me one of those “fashion experiments” if you will. I wore one of the BOM layer bodysuits under the high-cropped top from ChicModa.

Thinking Late Thoughts

Hello hello Fab Free! Are you ready for the new week to start? I’m not so sure I’m ready for Monday so I’ve been avoiding thinking about it too much by taking full advantage of the limited time free group join at Carol G. For a few days only the Carol G group will be free to join. There are quite a few male and female free group gifts, most if not all of which have been recently updated to include BOM layers. Also, there is a male and a female MM board that changes frequently.

I picked up this pretty red henna style leg tattoo for free by participating in the group only MM Board at Carol G. Once again, the free group join is a limited time thing, so if you’ve been waiting to join the group now is the time.

Appliers/Layers Included: Omega, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Legacy, BOM Tattoo Layers

I also came across this cool tied tank top at gSpot. It’s a current group gift, and it comes with a hud that has 5 color choices. I really like the bold color choices, and the arcane-like symbols in the pattern are a definite vibe. The gSpot group has a join fee of just 69 linden.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass

Conversing with Spirits

Spirit Conversation

Hello Fab Free. We’ve made it more than half way through the week, hallelujah! Recently I did a bit of wandering through Second Life and stumbled across the Tlalli event. I’d never been before. Let me just tell you, the setting for this shopping event is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful Latin themed event in a vibrant setting that made me feel like I had been transported to a quaint town in Mexico. The setting alone is well worth the visit to the Tlalli event. There I picked up a few of the gifts some vendors had out while enjoying the scenery. Speaking of gifts, I also picked up the new group gift at SPIRIT, and a thank you gift by Rosary. From here I’ll get to telling you about all these fabulous finds. I hope you enjoy them!

Tlalli Gifts

Zinnias

I think this llama succulent planter is just the cutest. It is a free gift at the Tlalli event by Zinnias. This little guy is completely free, just look for the gift box at the Zinnias booth at the Tlalli event. No group is required.

Cherry Bunny

If you’re wondering about the bright green sugar skull in my hand, it too is a gift at Tlalli. You’ll find this 5 linden gift at the Cherry Bunny booth. What is it? It’s a typer! Wear it and it will appear invisible until you begin to type in open chat. Then the sugar skull will appear in your hand, you’ll give it a little shake and appear to listen to it. So cute!

SPIRIT

Next up, this cute deep grey colored sweater is the newest group gift at SPIRIT. It could be worn as a dress or a top. I found it fit nicely over my Blueberry jeans (listed in the credits). The sweater has a hud with it that allows you to change the color of the cute side ribbons. The SPIRIT group has a join fee of 25 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

SPIRIT Group gift - Autumn 2020

Rosary

My manicure is a lovely free gift from Rosary as a Thank You gift to all customers. There is no group needed for this pretty set of nails. The set has a few preset options with very pretty floral accent nails. Each hand size included also has several nail lengths to choose from. You’ll find this free gift waiting in a little package on the desk at the Rosary main store.

Sizes Included: Maitreya (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Belleza (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Slink (short medium, large, xl, xxl), Legacy (short, medim, large, xl, xxl)

Thank You

Sunday Necessities

Sunday Necessities

Happy Sunday Funday Fab Free!  I am all of a flutter thinking about all the cool stuff I could get up to today.  On the top of that list, is of course ice cream…because….well…ice cream.  Do I need any further explanation?

You Go, COCO!

There’s a new group gift over at COCO!  You’ll also notice that they’ve got a brand new build to explore.  You’ll find loads of free group gifts at COCO, as well as free gifts you can grab with no group join required.  This cute lacy top (which is a bit salacious, I’ll admit) is free when you join their free group.  You can get a whole free wardrobe at COCO!  Nice!

Je Vois la Vie en Pose

The latest round of La Vie en Pose is in full effect, and every designer has a free gift at their stall for members of their free-to-join group.  I picked up this cute ice cream by Lyrium there, and you can grab it too, as well as loads of other free goodies!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got ice cream to consume!

Make Me Feel

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog. I just could not resist the opportunity to pair up with the indomitable Love Trill for this post. The MOVE! group gift at ACCESS gave us the perfect opportunity to show off some freebies and some dance moves at the same time. In true friend fashion, we also happen to be twinning in camo shorts from RKKN which are also free at ACCESS. To help pull my look together I added one of the 6 free group gifts at Versov. Watch the video, keep reading for more info, peep the end of the post for full credits, and above all have fun!

ACCESS

Move! put out this fun casual dance as their free ACCESS group gift. Don’t forget you’ll need the ACCESS event group tag to get these gifts. The ACCESS group is free to join. Ladies, you can also pick up these cute camo print shorts by RKKN at ACCESS for free. They come in 3 sizes, Maitreya Lara, Legacy, and Belleza Freya.

Versov 

The Lolitov sneakers I have on are free at Versov. You’ll need the Versov group tag to get them and the other free group gifts. Not to worry though, the group is also free to join. These shoes (like all the gifts) are a full fatpack of colors and include male, female, and unrigged sizes. We’ve shown a few of the other Versov group gifts like the Jumpov sneakers, the Zlatorov heels, and the Sandov slides before. They are all still available.

How Far We’ve Come

How Far We've Come

Sometimes I think about how far SL has come in the (gasp) 9 years I’ve been hanging out in this crazy virtual world.  If you’ve been around SL for as long as me, think about all the stuff we used to wear!  Think about the blocky worlds we used to hang out in!  Our faces didn’t move, our hands didn’t move, but our hair sure did.  So when I stand in a sim as pretty as this one, wearing a dress as pretty as this one, I kind of smile a bit internally at the world we’ve all created together.

Ur Fave

I do love finding shops that are new to me, and Ur.Favorite.One (aka U.F.O.) certainly falls into that category.  They’ve got two pretty dresses (sized for Maitreya) out as group gifts for members of their free to join group.  One in a dusky red kind of hue that you can pick up in their shop, and a second one in mint you can grab on Marketplace for free if you don’t have a group spot you want to give up.  That works for me!
