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


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.

Just a Wee Bit o’ Kawaii Magic!

kawaii magic

Tick Tick Tick Gang!

I’ve got lots of time sensitive goodies for you tonight!  But I couldn’t resist sharing all the fun!

Most time sensitive first!

I ran out just a short while ago and grabbed some super cute and fun items from the designers at So Kawaii Sunday.  My hair is from Kuni, you get the basic pack for 65L and if you want the style pack (I did), that’s also another 65L.  Still a very good deal.  This hair is called Serenity and for some reason it’s not by the so Kawaii Sunday sign, I had to do an area search but it is upstairs for these prices.  That’s where I grabbed mine.  Perhaps because I am a tad bit early!

I also grabbed these cute Sakura Cards (with bento poses) from Unicorn for 65L.  I combined them with my own poses for my full pose.  They pose your hands, but the rest of your body is up to you!  It comes with the magical circle just behind me, the halo.  It turns slowly as you wear it.  Really lovely.

You have all day Sunday (August 29) to grab these and all the other So Kawaii Sunday deals.  I love the cute pink kawaii sparkly everything, so I kind of wait for this with baited breath every Saturday night!

“Just One More Thing, Ma’am” (bonus points if you know what I got this from!)

Now one more thing and thats all the wonderfulness of color and sparkly-ish-ness you see around me.  That is from Vibing and you can find it at the FLF Birthday Bash we have been going on and on about!  It was 50L, it is a sphere and although I just used it for some photos so far it is meant to live in or whatever you want to do with yours and I bet that would just be beautiful and magical!  If you do set up a home in one of these, please do invite me over so I can see what you did!  I bet the imagination is *limitless!*  You have until September 3rd to shop at the birthday bash!

Happy Magical Sparkling, erm, shopping!

Extra Goodies in the Photo

The super sweet neon popsicles behind me are from our very own Fab Free Designer, NinaX.  The red and yellow color is free in the Summer Nights Hunt (7.24 to 8.14), but the other colors are also a steal at only 15L each!  I grabbed them all, just cause I couldn’t decide!  Sooo cute!

My little yummy hand held popsicle and my little panda friend (who is sooo much enjoying his slushie!) are both from The Epiphany.  The popsicle is from Broken Arrows for a 50L pull and the Panda is from Stoic for 75L a pull.  Such a fun shoot!  I’ve got a close up below so you can get a better look at things.

Hey gang!

Have you made it to the Wash’s *final* Cart sale?  I’m so sad it is ending after so many years, but grateful for all the deals and the designers I have discovered through it.  One of my deals this time is this oh so cute outfit from 1 Hundred.  It was only 50L and it comes in a range of cute colors.  Of course I picked pink.  😀  It comes with the top and these cute short shorts.  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

I may actually run back and grab a few more colors!  But it is so tempting to spend all my money there, however!  Just like real life, I have to save up for the rent so, if I *do* go back, I’ll try not to lose my head.  lol

This is all my pinkishness for a Friday night!

Happy weekend y’all!

Fall Friends

 

Fall Friends

“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I’d fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Eliot

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are inches close to October already? I feel as though August lasted forever, but September has flown by. Needless to say, I’m so excited that my favorite time of year is here at last. Bring on all things autumn, I’m ready! For this post I’ve got freebies from PosEd and LYBRA to share with you.

To get your free copy of this fun fall pose just head over to PosEd, join their subscriber, then click the pose vendor.

Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!

Just Boating Around

Boats_001

Roleplayers are you ready for amazing props! I have to give props to the Gacha Guardians for some amazing gifts that will have your roleplay enhanced if you stop by to pick up their free gifts! Props for everyone! And free too!

By the water

I stopped by the Gacha Guardians event and joined the free Gimme Gacha group (you’ll need the tag to get the gifts) and ran all over picking up the 38 free gifts that are scattered around the event. I set out two of them (but really they equate to three) here to share with you!

Just boating around

Unkindness has out a free gift you won’t want to miss! Stop by their gacha machine with your Gimme Gacha tag on and pick up their free gift of these Forgotten Oasis Boats. These one piece, highly detailed, mesh boats are only 9 prim when rezzed out and are really beautiful and perfect for any modern, medieval, or fantasy setting. They are perfect for enhancing a roleplay setting or any landscape really. And who can pass up free!

The bears the thing.

Breaux Jr. gave out a gift and at first I thought it was the box! I rezzed their box and it was this one prim adorable little baby bear! How cute is that?! And only 1 prim! Ohmygosh! He would make a great prop for any landscape!

Then I realized he was actually the box for another free gift that is inside him! “Open” him up and you get the free torch that I have rezzed out as well. This gift is also courtesy free of the Gacha Guardians event.

Lots more to be had!

Be sure to pick up all 38 free gifts. You never know what treasures you’ll find!
