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


Proud of You

Proud of You

Sometimes it takes a bit of doing to be proud of who you are.  There are days where everything seems a bit off, and no amount of cheerful self-appreciation will shift that icky feeling.  However, one must soldier on.  Bit by bit, one gets to the point of loving one’s own quirks and foibles.  I for one, am pleased with my penchant for collecting piles of stickers, for painting my toenails blue and for always skipping a step on my way up a stairwell.  Sometimes it’s something deeper, like how we look, who we love or what we stand for – so dig deep and be proud of who you are, because you’re unique from the top of your head down to your blue toenails.

Miss Thang

One of my absolute faves, Miss Chelsea, is back with a new group gift for Pride.  This cute tank top (love those added safety pins) comes with an HUD to change to two different textures (check out the vendor below) and looks just super cute.  You can get yours by joining the Miss Chelsea group for 100L, then clicking the vendor on the front desk (sometimes things take a while to load at this location – a quick tp in and out usually sorts it for me).  There are plenty of other gifts on the counter too, so totally worth it!

And Beyond

I picked up this jean skirt that goes perfectly with my new top over at the WIP Event.  As I mentioned yesterday, you’ll find lots and lots of free gifts there in celebration of their 1st anniversary.  You’ll find this jean skirt at the Beyond booth, and I’m sure you’ll be able to pair it with a great many different tops since it’s so versatile!  The WIP Event runs until June 22nd.

Hot Diggity Dog!

77th St 7L Hot Dog Vendor

Hey gang!

It’s time again to go strolling through 77th Street for lots of gorgeous items and don’t forget about those 7L deals!  I got so hungry walking around that I grabbed myself a hot dog.  Soooo yummy!  Actually, I wanted *endless* hot dogs (health food nut that I am… not!!!), so I bought the entire Kei’s Old Time Hotdog Cart vendor for a whopping 7L!  And the hot dogs it hands out are absolutely *delish*!  A perfect weekend treat!  A stroll in the sun, shopping for goodies and a hot dog to bring along!  That sure sounds like a happy Saturday afternoon to me!

(admit it, you are craving hot dogs for real now, aren’t you??)

My hair is a Free Energy Group Gift (group is free to join) from Fabia and the necklace is a gacha from Fabia too.  😍

A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

A Pocket Full of Jellybeans

Happy Easter, FabFree!  To all those who celebrate, I hope that you enjoy this season of renewal and rebirth.  Oh, and of course… chocolate.   I’m basking happily in the Springtime sunshine and breathing in the fresh air that has wafted in our direction.  With a pocket full of jellybeans, let’s get down to it!

Hunting Time

I seem to be doing a lot of hunting these days, and though sometimes hunts can leave me feeling a bit frustrated and dizzy, I’m happy to report that this Easter hunt at Safira is pretty easy and fun.  I picked up my lovely lavender top and blue gingham skirt there, and each egg only cost me 15L each.  Just look around for the little turquoise eggs before April 11th when it comes to a close.

Easter Hunt 2021!

Yay! Shoes!

I’m always excited when there’s a new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  They’re celebrating their 6th anniversary with this really pretty pair of frilly flats in a full fatpack of colours (that was a lot of f’s!).  The counter at Miss Chelsea is groaning with super gorgeous gifts, and you’ll be able to access this one (and the rest) when you join their group for 100L.  Yay!

Love is Free

Love is Free

It’s Valentine’s Day eve, and that means that you’ve got to sort out all your bits and bobs.  By sort out your bits and bobs, I clearly mean settle on one of the bajillion gorgeous outfits that have been placed out as gifts, hunt items, discounts…my head is spinning with all the possibilities.  I found some really lovely items that came together as a strong contender for my final option for V-Day, but knowing me…I’ll probably change 5 times in a night anyway!

Short and Sweet

There’s a new group gift at Osmia!  I just love it when that happens!  This pretty pink and heart-covered dress is just what I needed for a night of romance (there are also lots of other colours in the HUD if you are not a pink person).  I particularly enjoy the little lace trim around the hem.  The best part is that this pretty dress is completely free!  Just join the Osmia group for free, then click on the vendor that’s just inside the front doors of the shop.  There are some other wonderful gifts there too while you’re at it.

Shoe Addiction

ChicChica are being their usual generous selves with a new gift for all.  No need to join a group to pick up these lovely shoes, you’ll find them for free on the counter of the main store.  There are also some other shoes in the box too (which you can see in the vendor pic below).  The ones I’ve got on come in both silver and gold options and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

Gift shoes u might miss

Last Stop

Time for another new group gift at Miss Chelsea!  This delicate little necklace I’ve got on is a cheeky little nod if you’re fending off the advances of some unworthy suitor.  The little gold bar in the middle says “not yours”, which made me giggle a little when I put it on.   There are three other choices of message, as well as a metals HUD with a few different options.  The Miss Chelsea group is 100L to Join, but you’ll find a very large pile of extremely high quality gifts on the main counter of the store, making the join super worth it.

A Trip to Ontiville

A Trip to Ontiville

Well, my dear readers – time for something a little different today!  Have you ever thought that you’d like to have a little spot to live in SL, but you’re not exactly flush or in the position to spend Lindens?  There are people who totally understand and have created an awesome experience and sim that can get you just that…without the cash!

Ontiville!

I was IMed the other day by the lovely Elba while I was doing my rounds and she told me all about the new sim her and her partner have been working on.  It’s called Ontiville, and it’s goal is to create a community where you can be provided with free rent and goods for those who aren’t in the position to spend Lindens.  How does that work, you ask?  Well, it means that you can get a virtual job in their city, complete quests, or afk in a coin hotspot to earn city coin.  You can even explore the sim to find some hidden coins!  Sounds like a lot of fun to me, and could be an excellent experience for those who are looking for ways to spend their time in SL.  Elba also mentioned that the first week of rental is a free trial – which is pretty darn cool.   Do check out Ontiville, and see what they’ve got going on.  I was accosted by some friendly residents while I was there and got a very nice feel from the place.  If you’re looking for more info, you can check out their website HERE

Oh, and a Freebie

I also thought I’d mention that the Lucky Boards at Tentacio have been changed out, and four new ones with cute accessories are there just waiting for the taking.  No need to join a group, these boards are free for everyone!  I got this pile of magical books and beakers while I was there which fit in perfectly with the little book shop behind me.  Good luck!

See you in Ontiville!

Penny Lane

Penny Lane

I’m suddenly feeling very “Almost Famous” in this outfit.  There’s something a bit Penny Lane about it all, with a bit of fur here, a bit of wild abandon there…and rock and roll present throughout.   The fashion legacy of the 70’s echoes throughout today’s trends, and I think it will for a long time – at least I hope it does!  Let’s get you in some dangly earrings and faux fur, and you’ll feel the vibes too.

Coco but not Chanel

COCO are always so generous.  The regularity and awesomeness of their group gifts are always things you can count upon, and this cool jacket is the latest in a long line of goodies.  It comes in this understated charcoal colour, and two different sizes (not specific to any body, just smaller and larger chest sizes). To get your own, join the COCO group for free!  There are loads of other gifts out too, enough to get you a whole new wardrobe.  Yay!

Look How they Shine For You

My sweet and celestial earrings are the newest group gift from Romazin.  They are known for their delicate jewelry, and these pretty and dangly shoulder-dusters sure make me happy.  They are completely free when you join the free Romazin group – and there are other lovely gifts for you there too.  With these pretty earrings, you also get a quite extensive HUD so you can match them to pretty much any outfit.  How nice is that?

I’m suddenly in the mood for some loud music….hmmm….

It’s beginning to look a lot like….MORE GIFTS!  Everywhere you go!  Oh my goodness, FabFree.  There is so much going on on the grid right now that my eyes may be going criss-crossed.  Just when I think I’m getting through my list of things I want to show you, I have to add more to it!  I’m not complaining, I promise.  We’re so spoiled!

Miss Chic

I love Miss Chelsea‘s fashions with an undying passion.  They always are something that I know I *need* to have!  Every year around Christmastime, they spoil their group members with a lovely dress, which is always perfect for parties.  This year is no exception, and the Star Dress is just so sexy and slinky that I just don’t know what to do with myself.  It comes in a full fatpack of colours too!  To get your very own, join the Miss Chelsea group for 100L and click on the vendor that you’ll find on the main desk of the store.  You’ll find lots of other gifts there too, making this group join quite worth it.

Geometric Love

Alaskametro, another of my absolute faves has put out some sweet gifts for members of their group (which is 50L to join) underneath the Christmas tree in their store.  A fantastic array of Christmassy nail appliers with Maitreya and Omega appliers which just make me happy.  There are so many to choose from, I really don’t know which to put on first!  Though I usually do a really nice mix of them (which is an option on the HUD).  There’s also a skin (in several tones) and shape under the tree there for the new Lelutka Lilly head, which is free at this time (get your info on that HERE – you still have a few days!).

Group gift: "Xmas Geo" nail art appliers

No rest for the weary!

An Avalanche of Gifts

An Avalanche of Gifts

Yay!  It’s Shop & Hop time again!  Isn’t it exciting when you’ve got 8 whole sims of wonder to discover – each one stuffed to the gills with free gifts!  I can’t complain when it comes around.  It’s always hard to figure out what I want to show you all, since everything is always so nice.  Let’s take a walk in the snow and check it all out!

Hopping in the Snow

If you’ve never done Shop & Hop before, get  yourself a beverage and get comfy because picking up the gifts usually takes several hours.  There’s no need to join a group, just click on the boxes at each display and the contents will be yours.  Here are some of my faves:

  • FREE sweater by Astralia sized for Freya, Legacy & Maitreya
  • FREE leggings by ViSion sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Legacy & Maitreya in a full fatpack of colours
  • FREE boots by Miss Chelsea sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, Maitreya and Unrigged Versions in 4 sparkly shades

There is soooooo much more.  You’ve got a while to pick it all up though, since Shop & Hop is around until January 3rd!

See you on the slopes!

Not That Jolly

Not That Jolly

I know I’m generally the jolly type, but once in a while I feel distinctively grinchy.  Well, maybe not grinchy, but maybe I just want to be left alone for a while.  This outfit cries out to the world that I’m feeling vaguely unapproachable and entirely glam rock.

Feeling Grumpy

The Grumpy Santa Hunt has you covered if you’re feeling a bit underwhelmed with the jollity this season.  I headed over to MoOH! to hunt for their Grumpy Santa Hunt prize.  This cozy sweater is exactly what I need to keep the humans at bay!  It only cost me 1L and a bit of hunting.   It also comes with an HUD that has several more cheerful options in case grumpy isn’t your scene.  Your hint is “These nutcrackers keep the evil spirits away”.

And Boots to Boot!

I’m sure you’ll recall that FaMESHed is celebrating the Holiday Season with plenty of free gifts at this month’s round.  While I was there picking up all the goodness, I also grabbed these boots by Garbaggio that really give me the colour pop this outfit needed.  They come sized for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy and Maitreya and to get them, just join the FaMESHed group for free.

Now, go away!

The Wild Woods

The Wild Woods

How lovely it is to take a little jaunt through the woods.  Sometimes when my mind is full of warring ideas, and to-do lists, it’s just nice to go out into the peace of the world and be alone.  A few birds said hello, but that was it.  The rest was calm and quiet, and perfect.

Warm Up

To head out in the woods, one always needs to be cozy, so this group gift sweater from Amiable is exactly what I needed. It has a bit of a grunge edge to it, which kinda floats my boat, but it’s also very soft and quite lavender.  It’s everything I love!  To get it, just join the free Amiable group and click on the vendor that you’ll find on the massive gift wall.  Don’t forget to pick up all the rest!

Wild Thing

Luas have got your antler needs covered with their latest group gift, which is this set of pointy and Christmassy antlers.  They come with an HUD to let you customize the little decorations as well as the antler shade.  You can get your own by joining their group for 50L.  There are also loads of other group gifts to be had at Luas too!

Hope you get a bit of peace too!
