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


Feeling Like a Fantasy

30L Sat God Mod/Simply Shelby 5-28-2022

Happy Saturday! I have a couple of goodies to show you. SL weekends are stuffed with sales events. There are tons of items at heavily reduced prices. I don’t roleplay in Second life but I do like a lot of the clothing and “magical” items. One of my go-to sales for those genres is $30L Saturday. There is a good mix of items so everyone is likely to find something they “need”. So, today I decided to do something a little different.

How This Happened

Reviewing the sales gallery the first item that caught my eye was a splendid scepter (I admit I thought it was a staff!). Simply Shelby creations are well made and sometimes a bit on the fantastical side. I love this one! The Maleficent Scepter Set comes with three colors: rose red, moss green, & mystical purple. The set includes both scripted with flicker & ribbon effects and non-scripted glow versions. An ad states it was “magically created from mystical fairy flower pods”. A tip about the store: The sales items often stay out for several days longer and you can slap a few MM boards while you’re there (NGN).

I needed something to wear that would show off my scepter. The stunningly textured Wild Rose Top & Maxi Skirt on sale at God Mod, a fairly new to me store, fit the bill. It looks so comfy I want a set in RL too. Note: Blue is the only color on sale.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • SLink HG & Physique

Time for Flowers

FTH3 Telsiope/Reina Photo

It’s that time of year. Spring has sprung and summer is near. The beautiful colors of spring flowers never fails to brighten my days. Keeping them alive in the summer heat is another matter but we’ll discuss it later when I’m relaxing on the beach one day.

One of the SL lessons I learned early on is that hunts are an economical way to add to your SL closet (and garage, shed, dressers, etc).  Plus you discover new designers and places. When I saw the Flower’s Time Hunt 3 was starting up I just knew there would be wonderful prizes (click the link for hints & prize pics). It ends on May 31st. As I have posted in the past this is another hunt to benefit the Harambee Gwassi Project so all hunt items cost a whopping $3L. It’s a really small price to pay for the goodies you can find.

Spring Score!! \0/

When I started writing posts for our FREE to join Fabulously Free in SL group I was introduced to Telsiope’s Couture. Now I regularly visit the shop to check out new offers. I have never been disappointed with anything from the shop and commend the owners/designers for participating in fundraising hunts.

Lupi is her name and she is gorgeous! Doesn’t it scream spring? The texture is perfect for the season. Nice touches are the halter type spaghetti straps and the cut outs at the waist making it a flattering fit. Included is a hud with 16 different colors/textures so you can go crazy playing with it.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • SLink HG & Physique

Posing Pretty

Also participating in the Flower’s Time Hunt 3 is Reina Photography. I adore this pose and backdrop. You can have scoop this up for $3L It’s an easy find. Come on, go grab it; you know you need this one.

Till the next time Fabbies!

Show Support for Ukraine

Brillancia $30L Sun Lucy Black

I have lived through a lot in my lifetime. I can’t fathom having to flee my country because it’s being invaded. It’s an extremely sobering thought. Hopefully this post will inspire you to show your support also.

Ways to Show Support

In today’s edition of Fabulous Finds Aline showed a set of free tats from Seduction. I’m wearing the dark right & left BOM flags. These are BOM and include 6 different tats each with a dark or light option.

HELP UKRAINE TATTOOS

Couture Chapeau has also set out a box (Free) containing a Stand With Ukraine Banner & a Ukrainian flag. You can see that banner in the pic at the top of this post.

Onto the Sale Find & Awesome News

If you’re a regular reader you know I love my sale finds! Today I spied this sexy black dress for only $35L! Sooo, I tripped on over to Brillancia to grab the Lucy Dress. Lace & shiny stuff fit together well. It’s another sexy lil number that let’s me be demure or maybe more like a DOMME. Chuckles; you’ll never know for sure.

Sizes

  • Legacy & Legacy Perky

  • Belleza Freya

Well, on the way to the sales board I noticed a $500L group credit along with about 24 other group gifts. Guess what? Brillancia group is Free to join! You get it all without spending a single $L.

Don’t delay. I don’t know when these gifts will disappear.

Peace for Ukraine…

The Problem with Modern Art

The Problem with Modern Art

Time to do a bit of random wandering by myself today.  Some days I just need a bit of peace and quiet so that I can face the onslaught of humans who generally clamour for my attention.  So, off to an art gallery I go to ponder over the meaning of modern art.  Full disclosure, I am not a modern art kind of gal.  I’m all about the Botticellis and Waterhouses of the world, but sometimes…I head towards the modern art section if I need a giggle.  I’m sorry to all the aficionados out there, but I can’t keep a straight face when someone puts a chain link fence in a museum and tells me I need to seek it’s deeper meaning.  But…I will have a private chuckle.  😉

Happy Anniversary!

Ah yes, FabFree…time for another event stuffed to the gills with free goodies for us!  WIP Event is celebrating one year of existence, and for that we must toss some confetti, and grab some free gifts!  Join their free group, and then click on the gifts at each booth.  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE Dress by To.Kiski sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass & Physique
  • FREE Shoes by Mosquito’s Way sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink & TMP
  • FREE Phone by Tantrum
  • FREE Necklace by Modish

There’s so so much more to discover there, so pencil it onto your weekend to do list!

Ooh, look a giant hamburger posing as modern art!

Flowers That Fly

Flowers That Fly

Hello Fabulouses!  Now this is the way to start your vacation…….relaxing in a field of butterflies!  Those last few days of school are so hectic; it’s wonderful to savor the first few moments of freedom.  Just like Carson’s Angel, Ripley is not on his summer schedule yet, but our morning walk led me to a lovely patch of daisies full of fluttering butterflies…….pure magic!

All This is Free?

The bi-monthly Ultra Event is celebrating its first year anniversary with lots of freebies for members of the Ultra Society Group (free to join).  Blue boxes at the event contain gifts from a variety of generous designers.  I’m featuring two of them in my post today.  First of all, my lovely tresses, called Froukje, came from Mina.  I love the way the long bangs are tucked behind my ear, with a few wispy strands escaping on my forehead.  In the gift package, there is one shade called “new blond,” which is this gorgeous golden yellow hue.   Other color packs are available for purchase in the Mina store.  I have to admit, I visited there, and scooped up some additional colors because this hair style is just so “me.”

My second giftie from Ultra is the ornate Nadine Gem Bracelet from Modish.  Crafted in dark, gleaming gold with emerald stones, this delicate bracelet coordinated beautifully with my Dorothea dress (more on that in a moment!).  The floral motif was a perfect match for the butterfly theme.  Best of all, it’s completely free at the Ultra Sales Event!

These are just two of the many free gifts up for grabs at Ultra’s first anniversary celebration, which runs until June 15th.  (There are even some for guys).  I’d highly recommend a visit there!

Thanks for the Butterflies

Don’t Fly Away Yet!

The flirty Dorothea mini dress I’m wearing features a satiny teal texture with a cluster of golden butterflies soaring to freedom.  With slender shoulder straps and sexy slits in the skirt, this frock is ideal for the warm summer days to come.  It is a free gift from Sexy Princess for members of the Third Life Group.  There is a 10L join fee for this group, which gives you access to multiple gifts from many designers, so your investment goes a long way.

Butterflies…Flowers that Fly and All But Sing (~Robert Frost)

Although I’ve enjoyed my interlude with the “flying flowers,” it’s time for Ripley and I to tackle some of the many chores around the house that we put off until summer break.  Fun times!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Coffee Break

Coffee Break

Coffee and Gossip

I needed a little “caffeine therapy” on this rainy (in RL) Monday morning, and I managed to grab Sheidey to join me for some lattes and girl talk. I was so happy to see that spring had sprung at of my favorite SL spots, the Cheeky Tiramisu Cafe.

After gossiping about which hunts had the best gifts, and whether we thought Carson looked better in his Signature or Adam body, I had the nifty idea of snapping a selfie to share on IG. This must have been the laggiest day in SL EVER because what I thought would be a quick pic wound up taking about 20 minutes. Poor Sheidey was so sweet and patient while I fiddled with my slow-moving graphics settings, eventually taking about 3 photos before I crashed and gave up. But I definitely think this one is a keeper! 😀

Make Mine a Venti

Sheidey and I had plenty of Lindens to spend on large, expensive coffee drinks because we had saved so much on our fabulously free outfits! We’re both wearing the latest group gifts from Hilly Haalan: Sheidey in the red Evelyn Dress, and me in the pink Almila Belted Dress. Both dresses include matching shoes.

Sizes for the Almila Belted Dress include:

  • Fitmesh for Classic Avatars
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet

Sizes for the Evelyn Dress include:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • The Mesh Project (TMP)
  • Shoes for Maitreya, Slink, and TMP feet

The Hilly Haalan group is free to join. You can find these dresses in the group notices and at the in-world store (along with LOTS of other gifts). 🙂

Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Like a few of the other ladies here at Fab Free, I also had a difficult and emotional weekend. A RL family issue hit me kind of hard, but thankfully Carson passed me the brownies and listened patiently while I had a small meltdown (thanks for listening, bro!). 🙂

Then I decided to pick myself up, throw on my favorite color (pink), do a little “wishful make-upping,” and head outside for a walk in the SL sunshine. I wound up at Small Town Green – it was chilly and snow was still on the ground, but this has always been one of my favorite sims for wandering and taking photos. It’s a bit smaller of a town now than it used to be, although still lovely and definitely worth a visit.

A Really Volcanic Ensemble

When I heard that S@BBiA had put out a new lucky board gift, I hurried over to the store and planted myself in a chair. I only had to wait a short while before an “S” popped up (very unusual!) and I received this fabulous coat, skirt, and sweater ensemble. The outfit only comes in one mesh size, but what’s really nice is that a HUD is included so you can turn on or off any of the pieces. For instance, you could wear the coat and sweater with a pair of jeans, or only the coat, only the skirt and sweater… I’m sure you get the idea! I’m not certain if you need to be a member of the S@BBiA group in order to use the lucky boards since I had my tag on at the time. But the group is free to join, and lots of other gifts are available to pick up, so there is no reason not to join, right?

For accessories, I headed over to the ULTRA Event. There are quite a few nice gifts available at this round, including the gold and amethyst (I think) jewelry I’m wearing by Modish, and this gorgeous handbag by Clef de Peau. You do need to join the ULTRA group in order to grab the gifts, but the group is free to join.

My shoes are by Ingenue, and I love the slightly retro look of them. They were set out a few days ago for Fifty Linden Friday, but as of this publishing, you can still grab them – or a pair in teal – for 50L. They come in sizes for Maitreya and Slink (high) mesh feet.

I’m Wishful Make-Upping!

My skin and makeup are by Amara Beauty for the January Powder Packa brand-new “mystery box” designed specifically for wearers of Catwa mesh heads. While the box itself is definitely not 75L or less, I do feel that it was a very good value, considering all that you get. This month, there were skins, makeups, and eyelashes from 12 different designers, several of which were thoughtful enough to include Omega appliers so you can use the items on heads other than Catwa.

The Julia applier that I’m wearing today included 3 different skin tones with 2 eyebrow colors (or no eyebrows, if you prefer to add your own), 9 eyeshadows, 18 lipsticks, and even included Omega body appliers. I hadn’t worn Amara Beauty skins before, and I have to say that this one is really pretty and a different look for me. I will definitely be checking them out again! 😀
