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


Gargoyle Queen

Hey fabbies,

I’ve been delving into the world of geneology in my real life.  Fascinating stuff, really.  Especially for a girl who was adopted and never knew her heritage growing up.  Turns out I am mostly British, Irish and Scottish (DNA), which may explain my love of castles.  Speaking of castles, check out my new buddy.  He may look scary but he is really just one of those gargoyles from Notre Dame voiced by Jason Alexander (You know, George from Seinfeld).  He says “Ooh La La“.  Still, you don’t meet a guy like him every day.

Ok for reals, this is another of those amazing pose props from Le Poppycock (75L a play Nextup!).  I tell ya’ she has got some mighty fun stuff.

My dress is a group gift from UNA that comes in a fatpack of colors as a free group gift.  The group there is 50L to join but she has a plethora of goodies for you on the wall for your small join fee.  This dress fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Ebody

Ah well, my eyes are mad at me for staring at this screen for far too long today, so I suppose it is time to come down from my belltower and post this.

Free the Mind: Imagination Vibrations

Monarchs Kingdom

Second Life is about imagination.  We can do things, see things, BE things in Second Life that we can only dream about.  It’s a fantasy world where we each get to be a star.

Monarchs Kingdom is not a store.  They are a performance dance troupe, and you can attend their live shows or watch their videos here.  So how, you ask, did they end up on the FabFree blog???

Each month, their creator, Royal Shippe, places a group gift of decor out for free.  Royal isn’t any ordinary dance designer, he’s won awesome awards like the Avichoice Performance Artist of the Year.  The gifts are elaborate set pieces from the many awesome shows he’s created.  They are 100% original.

The April gift (called the Megapack Holo Trees & Humanoid Statues) is pictured above includes a whole set of large and small holographic trees in a variety of colors and this sculpture called Corellia (which comes with a mirror).  I paired the set with a post set from Something New called Dress Me Again that is currently available at Cheeky Wow for a sweet 50L!!!

If you love backdrops as much as I do, you will LOVE the monthly gifts.

Every month you can pop in and get a new set!!!  Stick around for Christmas, because the advent daily calendar was unbelievable.  And the price?  FREE!!!!  The group isfree; the gifts are free.

Rumor has it that a Star Wars production is in the works and dates will be announced soon.  I CAN’T WAIT!!!!

Takin’ it to the Streets

ukraine flag_010

Tis just me gang,

Sneaking in for a post.  Ohhhhh gollygosh, it’s been a crazy rl time for me.  Real life job stuff has had me on my toes the last week or so, coming to a head tomorrow (in a good way, hopefully!)  So I didn’t forget about y’all!  Just scrambling to keep up!  You know when you have those waves of time where you know if you can just get done with A, B and C, you can regroup and refocus?  I’m trying to get those things done now and hopefully by this weekend, be able to breathe again.

Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine sadly rages on.  Many of the designers have been creating wonderful items so that we can show our support for the poor people of Ukraine.  I’ve got a couple more to showcase for you today so let’s get on with it.

This super cute and colorful top is a find on marketplace for 25L by Morph Studios.  It fits:

  • CLASSIC XXS-L
  • TONIC CURVY / FINE
  • EBODY CLASSIC / CURVY
  • LEGACY
  • KUPRA
  • MAITREYA
  • SLINK HOURGLASS / PHYSIQUE
  • BELLEZA FREYA/ ISIS / VENUS

This pose is another cute marketplace find and it also comes with a pose for two people, so they’ve gotcha covered whether you are posing alone or with a friend.  It is made by Chocolate Cake (which sounds good right about now!) and will cost you absolutely nothing (aka free!).

My face tattoo in Ukraine Colors is a gift from Carol B, I found it on market also for free.

Lastly, my fellow protestor in the back is a 10L find also on market by Salmagundi (I just like to say that out loud!).  He is copy so you can turn him into an entire crowd if you please.

Let Me Take You Down….

Hello loverly faboos!

Spring is coming my darlings!  It really, truly is!  I cannot emphasize how *glad* I am that warm weather is beginning to creep in on us.  With the Ides of March past and St Patty celebrations happening everywhere, even the fashions are shouting spring!  (if er, clothing could talk, that is!) (perhaps its best clothing can not talk… o.0)

I found this stunning little dress at the TWE12VE Event, it is a 12L item from Emerald Couture, who blesses us with lovely creations in every season.  I knew I needed this dress the moment I saw it.  And for 12L, well as I like to say, you sure can’t beat that with a stick! This adorable dress fits:

  • Classic
  • Fit
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink & Hourglass
  • Venus

It also comes with sure cute matching shoes, not shown in the photo.

Now, it’s not just the clothing bursting out spring, but the poses as well.  Amitie has more of their fabulous poses for you at the Arcade, all Boho Spring inspired (this one is called Strawberry Fields) – which is right up my alley!  Each pose is only 50L a play and they are one cuter than the other!

Marketplace Hunter

Coming Soon
I’ve been doing a lot of Marketplace freebie hunting lately… mostly because I’m just too tired to come online lately and go shopping. Sad, I know. But one of the perks of this recent trend is that I’ve found so many cool sales as well as some freebies on the MP!

Glow!

Glow has a load of free poses on the Marketplace. There’s a tonne, as everything on their MP store is completely free! These are great gifts for bloggers and photo lovers alike! I’m not sure how long these will be available, so scoop them up now.

Can you spare 10 Lindens?

Going back to those sales I mentioned, I have two items I found today for sale on the Marketplace for only 10L each:

  • This amazing ice crown is currently on sale for 10 L at Pure Poison, available only on the Marketplace. This item is amazing with how detailed it is! It comes with a colour hud to change the flowers and other parts of the crown.
  • My lovely lipstick is from another 10L sale item, which is a fatpack of lipsticks by Synnergy. You can purchase it on the MP here. It’s a lovely set! This lipstick applier works with Lelutka Evolution & EvoX heads only.

Winter Feels

Finally, my striking eyeshadow is the latest group gift at Pout! This comes from an eyeshadow set in different colours with unique patterns on them. You can grab this freebie at the Pout! mainstore when you join their free group gift. These shadows come in an HD makeup applier that only works on Lelutka EvoX heads.

See you soon, FabFree!

Wintry Fun Deals (and more snowball fights!)

snowball fight

Hey gang!

I’m still out here being the trouble maker that I am.  Mainly because I found *the* most funnest (its a word!!!!!  lol) thing ever!  Fluffy Stuff has, well, basically a snowball fight that you can buy and it’s still on sale from SoKawaii Sunday yesterday for only 65L!  Not only does it give you some cute poses, but when you go into mouselook and aim, you can throw snowballs at things and people and anything!  There was no one around so Santa got hit quite a few times.  I really got sidetracked playing with this.  Lots of fun!

I’ve also still been stalking The Arcade, where I got another pair of these super cute fluffy boots from Gild (mens and women sizes, one size fits each) for only 50L a play and also this awesome jacket and leggings by Amias, which is 75L a play.  I’m wearing the Maitreya size.

Again, time sensitive so I can get y’all that awesome sale at Fluffy Stuff.  Not sure how long it will be up for though, so if you want some wintery fun (it really is!) run over and grab this while it’s on sale!

Squirrel!

squirrel!_017

Well gang,

It is nearly time to say goodbye to autumn once again.  Unlike some of the other girls, I am *not* looking forward to winter (how long until spring???), in as much as I relate to Elsa, the cold *does* bother me, and it is not my friend.  Too, the holidays are difficult for me, so I spend nearly every year sort of holding my breath until they finally pass and it’s January and I can breathe a bit better.  Meantime, I am helping these little friends get ready for *their* winter, which is rough for them in a different way!

So I spent some time perusing marketplace and found this stunning little dress for you, it’s got a HUD with some gorgeous autumn (and non autumn) colors to choose from.  The very best part is, it’s free!  It does only fit Maitreya but it is really adorable!

Oh and I took this photo at the lovely Mystic Dreamers Valley Mall.  Our very own Juli has been doing the landscaping there and if you love to take photos, its a great area for some picturesque scenes!  It will be autumn there for another day or so and then I think Juli said winter was due to arrive!  Either way its a lovely place for photos or for an afternoon out with friends!

Hope everyone in the US will enjoy their Thanksgiving Holiday today!  Eat, drink and be fabulous y’all!

Just Do It!

gym_009

Hey gang,

Just a quickie today, something a little out of the ordinary for you!

It’s getting to be that time of year when its cooler out so we eat more, and there are holidays, so we eat more, and the holidays make us feel certain ways so maybe we eat and drink more….

So I thought, what I need is a little workout area of my own!  Maybe if Arielle is working out, it will inspire me to workout too (I’m not holding my breath!  lol)

Either way I found these adorable items at Dench Designs.  There is an exercise mat (that comes with barbells to work out with!  They attach automatically!) for only 50L, and a treadmill for only 40L!  Both are low prim too so they can be used even if you are low on prims!

As bloggers we need our bodies to look fab (no pun intended!) and so there is no slacking off when we have to keep toned to showcase all sorts of clothing for our valued readers!

You got this gang!

Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.
