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


Winter Wishes

Winter Wishes

I’ve often talked about how people on television seem to dress for winter in a way that is completely the antithesis of anything that you would actually wear in a cold clime.  Being Canadian, I know that these dreams of looking stylish when the mercury dips below zero are really just dreams.  Unless I’m in the mood for some very uncomfortable frostbite in questionable locations.  So, when I’m inworld, I dress like the magical winter being that I can only ever aspire to be.  Quick!  To the apres-ski!

Faux Fur

This very cozy and chic vest is perfect for layering when things get cold out.  I love that it looks all big and toasty without adding too much bulk to my frame.  To get yours, head on over to COCO, join their free group and get this vest which is the latest in a long string of amazing gifts.  There are so many lovely things to pick up here, you can pretty much get a whole wardrobe of sensible staples for completely free.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite

But Boots

Boots are a thing one cannot go without in chilly climes.  I generally am in boots from November through til April, so I cannot overstate the importance.  Yes, I said April.  Anywhos, this great pair of sorta celestial themed stomper boots (in three different colours) are the latest gift from Mosquito’s Way.  You all know I love this store with an undying passion.  There are frequent gifts, and the quality is just amazing.  The group is currently 150L to join, but you’ll get a whole wall of group gifts, plus their lucky chair prizes too.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Legacy

See, no frostbite here!

In Need of Respite

In Need of Respite

Ooh, it’s been a doozy of a day, Fabbies!  You know what that calls for… wide open skies and azure seas.

To COCO

There’s not one…not two…but THREE new group gifts at COCO today.  Purveyors of excellent wardrobe staples, I’ve always been a big fan.  One of the three is this lovely green dress, replete with little bows on the shoulders (which can be removed!).  The other two gifts are just as lovely – a pair of shorts and a cute tank top.  The COCO group is free to join, and there’s a massive amount of high quality gifts to be had.

And Last Few Days…

The FLF Birthday Bash is wrapping up soon (Sept 2nd) so make sure you visit before it all comes to a close.  I had had haaaad to have these super cool platforms from Mug.  They have little fishies swimming around in them!  There’s also a static version if you feel like reducing lag a bit – but man, the swimming fish! As always with Mug items, you’ll find all the sizes in the HUD.  So cool!  They’re just 50L!

Costiera Amalfitana

Costiera Amalfitana

Ok, this girl is back in swimwear, and with good reason!  I’m off on the Amalfi Coast dreaming of gelato and blue lagoons and really nice shoes.  As I wait for my lunch to digest (hello, we’re in Italy…food!),  I’ll just sit here and wait for Raoul Bova circa Under the Tuscan Sun to show up.

Swimwear First

If we’re doing Amalfi, then swimwear is required.  But not just any plain bathing suit, you’ll need something that will stand out while you wade in the crystalline waters.  Enter Rosary, with their group gift for the month of June.  This one piece is cutout in all the right ways and has lots of different options in the HUD to suit your mood.  The Rosary group is currently 350L to join, but you’ll find two other group gifts, and new ones with regularity.  A good group to join and stay in!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Reborn

And Shoes

Everyone knows that shoes are important in Italy (well, everywhere…but ESPECIALLY in Italy).  You’ll need something summery, pretty, and completely impractical but that won’t kill your feet.  Not a big ask, right?  Well, thankfully for us Mosquito’s Way has us covered in their latest group gift.  The Alexis platforms cover all the bases and are just so darned pretty I wish I owned them in real life.  But I say that about every shoe that Camilla Limondi makes, don’t I?  The Mosquito’s Way group is 50L to join and you’ll find a bunch of previous gifts on the wall, enough for a whole new shoe-drobe.

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I now pronounce it to be gelato time! Yay!

Lobsters Need Not Apply

Lobsters Need Not Apply

I have a love-hate relationship with the beach.  You see, I love the sound of crashing waves, the sea breezes, the feel of my toes in the sand… but, beach enjoyment often comes at a price for a fair skinned person like myself.  One minute too long, and we’re in lobster territory.  Plus beaches are often very people-y.  So, I head out to the beaches of SL to find nice wide open spaces, and no risk of lobsterism in sight.

No TP Required

Unlike my search for a secluded spot, shopping on EvoShop takes no effort.  Once you’ve got the HUD, you can shop from anywhere on the grid.   This week, I picked up this dress by Gloss (ooh, cow print!) for just 60L, which is pretty cool since it actually comes in three different patterns.  We all know how in cow print is (inexplicably) this season.  Anywhos, just head on over to EvoShop headquarters, grab the HUD and then shop to your heart’s content.

A Little Love

A Little Love

It’s Friday, and here’s the tee, sis:  It’s time to get cozy, get cute…and get some Fifty Linden Truth!

So Shady

The Shady Seasonal Hunt is back!  When you head on over to the Shady Valley sim, you’ll find that several of the stores are taking part in this hunt.  First, join their free group, then you can add the HUD (not that you have to, but it helps).  Then, head to each participating store to find the fuzzy little teddy that’s holding a heart.  Each prize is just 20L.  I’m in the prizes from Seka (this sweet top) and Mug (the panties that just seem to go with perfectly!).  You’ll find all the other prizes listed in the HUD as well.  You’ve got until February 16th to pick ’em up!

I Only Speak the Truth

Another round of Fifty Linden Fridays is upon us, and Truth are participating again this week!  Excitemeeeeent!  The lovely Trinket hairdo comes with several different styling options and a very extensive hair colour HUD.  You’re sure to find something that works for you.  There are two locations where you can nip off to get this hairstyle:  HERE and HERE.  If you don’t get in right away, they have kept it out all weekend in the past, so perhaps the same will happen this time!  Fingers crossed!

Hope your weekend is lovely!

Trippy Daydream or … What was in that Tea?!

And the story goes... I was having my tea with a sheep one morning...

And the story goes… I was having my tea with a rather solemn sheep one morning…

…when a little bird whispered some goodies in my ear and I hastily gulped down my tea, fell asleep leaning against the sheep and dreamed I was shopping!

Of course I was drinking my tea out of a cute kitty cat mug from LuluB which is a freebie at Cozyfest (well, what’s cozier than a steaming cup of tea, hm?  Hot chocolate perhaps is cozier, says I!) you do need to have your Fifty Linden Fridays group active, but that too is free to achieve.

And oh my gosh I needed some cute shoes, so that my week little pink piggies would be happy!  And they are blissfully happy because I found these adorbs shoes (and the piggies get to peek out!  Squee!) on market from Higgle (a perfect name when you are buying shoes to make your little piggie digits happy), and they cost me exactly… 1 whole entire whopping linden!

These cute shoes (there’s a better look at them below) come with a HUD giving you ten delicious color choices and they fit:

  • Reborn
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

When I woke from the dream, the little birdie had gone, my tea was done and I stood back up, thanking the sheep for helping me with my strange slumber…

And the story ends with….. I saw some balloons floating by so I grabbed a hold, they lifted me up to the sky and that’s when the rainbow appeared.

Settling Into Fall

Coming Soon
Hey FabFree! I am enjoying the fall season and decorating my home with lovely fall goodies. Before I jump into the decor I’ve found, I have an amazing free fall mug and drink to share. 

A Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh how I enjoy all things pumpkin flavored- especially lattes! You can grab this adorable pumpkin mug and drink at hive. It is a free group gift. 

Fall Decor!

Coming Soon

Now it’s time to share some amazing fall decor. I am loving the pumpkin season too! I got most of my decor from the Fall Festival at Malus Park which is a wonderful event to stock up on fall goodies. They have many giftboxes scattered around the event that cost 25L and under at the Fall Festival, which ends on October 16th. 

I also grabbed the banner from the Halloween Shop & Hop. The deals under 75L I am showing in decor today are:

  • The pot of pretty orange flowers is a 25L deal from Finca at the Fall Festival.
  • The beautiful fall leaves painting is 25L from Cwtch at the Fall Festival.
  • The two pumpkins that are breaking open with green ivy and brown leaves falling out of them cost 70L each, and you can find them at the Noveny booth at the Fall Festival.
  • Finally, the “Happy Halloween” banners are a free gift from Finca at the Halloween Shop & Hop

Enjoy, FabFree!

Cae is Closing… </3

I’m very sad by the recent news that one of my favourite jewelry stores is closing. Cae will be leaving SL at the end of June, so make sure you stop by the store and grab all their free gifts before they go away forever. My bracelets, earring and adorable necklace are all free gifts from Cae, and the group is free to join. Cae also has a 75% off sale so load up before the gorgeous jewels are gone forever!

A Boho Set

Coming Soon

Phew, I’m getting tired FabFree! This is a lot of freebies to gab about all at once. I hope I don’t overload you. Finally, I wanted to show off an amazing Boho furniture and decor set at Careless. This provided the perfect new set for my skybox, and it costs only 25L. Yes, 25 L for the couch, rugs, tapestries, lights, cushions, cactus, table, all of it… incredible! Such a steal! I got the adult set and it is the same price as the PG. Just waltz over the Careless and grab this set for a low price. 

See you soon, FabFree!
