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


Conversing with Spirits

Spirit Conversation

Hello Fab Free. We’ve made it more than half way through the week, hallelujah! Recently I did a bit of wandering through Second Life and stumbled across the Tlalli event. I’d never been before. Let me just tell you, the setting for this shopping event is gorgeous. It’s a beautiful Latin themed event in a vibrant setting that made me feel like I had been transported to a quaint town in Mexico. The setting alone is well worth the visit to the Tlalli event. There I picked up a few of the gifts some vendors had out while enjoying the scenery. Speaking of gifts, I also picked up the new group gift at SPIRIT, and a thank you gift by Rosary. From here I’ll get to telling you about all these fabulous finds. I hope you enjoy them!

Tlalli Gifts

Zinnias

I think this llama succulent planter is just the cutest. It is a free gift at the Tlalli event by Zinnias. This little guy is completely free, just look for the gift box at the Zinnias booth at the Tlalli event. No group is required.

Cherry Bunny

If you’re wondering about the bright green sugar skull in my hand, it too is a gift at Tlalli. You’ll find this 5 linden gift at the Cherry Bunny booth. What is it? It’s a typer! Wear it and it will appear invisible until you begin to type in open chat. Then the sugar skull will appear in your hand, you’ll give it a little shake and appear to listen to it. So cute!

SPIRIT

Next up, this cute deep grey colored sweater is the newest group gift at SPIRIT. It could be worn as a dress or a top. I found it fit nicely over my Blueberry jeans (listed in the credits). The sweater has a hud with it that allows you to change the color of the cute side ribbons. The SPIRIT group has a join fee of 25 linden, and there are past group gifts available as well.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara

SPIRIT Group gift - Autumn 2020

Rosary

My manicure is a lovely free gift from Rosary as a Thank You gift to all customers. There is no group needed for this pretty set of nails. The set has a few preset options with very pretty floral accent nails. Each hand size included also has several nail lengths to choose from. You’ll find this free gift waiting in a little package on the desk at the Rosary main store.

Sizes Included: Maitreya (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Belleza (short, medium, large, xl, xxl), Slink (short medium, large, xl, xxl), Legacy (short, medim, large, xl, xxl)

Thank You

Macaron Madness

Macaron Madness

I am obsessed with all things macaron.  I love the little sugary concoctions that scream Paris and pink and all things precious.  Of course, you can’t necessarily think about macarons without thinking about pastel colours, and so here I am ensconced in all the best of pastel.

Meow Again

Meow.Hi have a new group gift out at their store, and it’s this cute one sleeved cropped tank top in three different shades: black, grey and pink!  To get your pastel paws on it, just join the Meow. Hi group for 20L, and click on the vendor.  There are a bunch of other gifts there too!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

More Cake

I mentioned the other day that there are free gifts over at the CakeDay event, and today I paired another gift I got there with my top.  The Adictiva Skirt by Venus comes with some daring lacing up the side for some visual interest.  You’ll find a matching top in the box too!  All the gifts at CakeDay are free, no group join required!

  • Hourglass

Ah, vanilla macarons…my fave!

Born to be Wild

Born to be Wild

A wild animal print is sometimes all you need in order to make the day just a little more exciting.  If it’s oversized, even better!

Two for One

There are two new gifts out at Rosary!  This awesome dress (which you can wear as two separate parts) as well as the long nails.  The dress comes with loads of colour and texture options in the HUD, so you can mix and match and go just a little crazy.  The nails have 6 different colour options in a cool marble-like design, and there are several different length options if you want to go a little more practical (or less!) these bento nails are fitted for Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy and Slink hands.  To pick up these gifts (and one other!) join the Rosary group for 350L.  The price might seem a little steep, but they are very generous with their monthly gifts making this a good group to join and stay in.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Abstract

My Picasso-inspired face earrings come courtesy of Teabug!  They’re completely free on Marketplace right now and I am kind of obsessed.  There are black, gold and silver versions in the box, making this a really awesome gift!  Sweet!

See  you wild things later!

Hot in the City

Hot in the City

Summer time in the city calls for cool outfits, and cool attitudes.  With summer heat warnings in effect in my part of the world, all I can do is stare gratefully at my air conditioner.  SL-me is being more adventurous and heading out into the city, ready to cause a ruckus and look cool while she’s at it!

Smug Mug

I’m sending you all over the place today to get some fun group gifts to put together a cute outfit that’s right for turning heads on the hot tarmac.  Your first stop is Mug where their latest group gift is a fun little tube top.  It comes with several different texture options that you can access from the HUD, and as with all Mug offerings the sizing options are accessed through the HUD as well.  To get this cute top (and the other group gifts) just join the Mug group for 250L.

Sneaky!

Quinnty’s has a new group gift out too, and it’s these colourful sneakers. They  have a wide range of different texture options as well, ranging from 80’s fabulous to patriotic.  To get them, join the Quinnty’s group for 50L and then pay the vendor 1L which will then be returned to you.  There are lots of fun group gifts to be had at this stop, so make sure you pick them all up!  The shoes come sized for Belleza, eBody, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature, Slink and Tonic.

Nailed It!

This month’s group gift from Rosary is something a little different – mesh nails!  They come in three length options from short to extra-long.  I went for the middle length option, but as you can see they’re still pretty long!  They come with an HUD to change the colour and work with Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy and Slink hands!  The Rosary group is currently 350L to join, and you’ll find older group gifts available to pick up here as well.

While you’re at it, if you’re a Maitreya body user you should pick up a redelivery (you can get that through the Maitreya HUD) as the body has recently been updated to version 5.2!

Stay cool Fab Fam!

About To Go Coconuts

About To Go Coconuts

Do you ever get the nagging feeling that you’ve lost something?  I sometimes feel like my mind has taken a bit of a wander, but I’m sure we all have that feeling now and then.  Today is one of those days where everything seems to be up in the air, and I’m not quite sure where I’m going next.  Luckily for me, I can always find solace in some group gifts to get me grounded and back on track!

Rosary’s Roses

The monthly gift from Rosary has made it’s appearance, and it’s totally cute, and super summery.  The newest dress they’re giving out is giving me beach and sunshine feels!  It comes in a bunch of solids and patterns, including this striped beach-towel esque look.  You can get yours by joining the Rosary group for 350L and then clicking on the vendor.  There are two other pretty group gifts available there too, so do make sure you pick them up while you’re at it!

Sippin’

Iso Darling have joined the ranks of designers who are offering cute freebies for the Stay at Home club.  They are handing out these little milk cartons which you can apply a photo to yourself!  I chose the Fab Free logo to add because a.) I feel like we’re “wanted” and b.) how cute would it be to have Fab Free themed drinks?  You can apply any texture to the little photo box, so go wild!  You’ll find the instructions on how to do so in the box.

Now if only my mind was as put together as my look is!

Life is a Party

Life is a Party

Today, I’m setting aside some time to celebrate life in general.  There are so many beautiful things to enjoy, though sometimes we just feel like hiding a bit.  I’m thankful for sunshine, the seeds that I planted starting to sprout, and good ol’ fashioned baked potatoes.  The SL version of me is content with her balloons and ice cream, and I think that’s absolutely perfect.

Dress it Up

There’s a new group gift over at Rosary!  This cute little dress comes in a long and short version, and an HUD exploding with fun colours.  To get it, just join their group for 350L and then head to their Foxcity location.  There are some other group gifts to pick up, and Rosary is always quite good with their monthly gifts, so it’s a great group to stay in!

Celebrate!

Seraphim is currently hosting a “Welcome Back” Event, to celebrate all the members of the SL community who are returning to our beloved game after an absence.  It’s great to see so many residents joining us again!  There are loads of discounted items from your fave designers, and Black Bantam have put out some fun gifts for you to get into the spirit of celebration.  The balloons and ice cream I’ve got in both photos are completely free, all you have to do to get them is join the Seraphim inworld group for free, then click on the box at their booth.  Both gifts come in loads of different colour options, and the ice cream has both a holdable and rezzable version in lots of flavours.   The Welcome Back Event is running until May 6th.

What are you celebrating today?

Redecorate, Rejuvenate

Redecorate, Rejuvenate

Spring really is here, I suppose, though we’ve all been a bit busy with all the world’s goings-on to notice it.  It’s the perfect time to redecorate, start a new project, and even try out a new look.  You all know it’s much easier to do it in SL, and I’ve found the perfect little details to get you started on your Spring reawakening!

Dress Up

Of course you can’t do any effective redecorating if you’re not dressed to the nines.  That’s how it works, right? Luckily, Rosary have put out a new group gift for their members.  This form-fitting mini dress hits all the right “I’m about to redecorate like mad” notes.  Or you know, something that actually makes sense.  It comes in 8 gorgeous hues and to get it all you have to do is join their group for 350L and click on the vendor.  There are two other gifts out right now, and they’re quite generous with their monthly gifts, so it’s well worth the join fee.

Time to Decorate

Now that you’re suitably attired for some SL decorating, Hive have got just the goodies for you to give your space a bit of a lift.  They’ve posted 6 items priced at just 1L each in their marketplace store and they’re all giving off elegant farm vibes.  I love it.  I’ve added the ad below so you can see just what’s on offer.  Cool right?  Thank you Hive!

Ring Around the Rosary

There’s a new group gift at Rosary!  After a brief hiatus, they’re back with their creative batteries recharged and ready to spoil their group members yet again.  The newest gift is this long bodycon dress that clings in all the right places.  It comes with an HUD to change the texture to a whole bunch of hues and even a fun design or two.  To get yours, just join the Rosary group for 350L.  There are two other group gifts out at this time which are both equally as gorgeous.

Wistful in Paris

Wistful in Paris

Happy Friday Fab Free!  To celebrate the advent of the weekend, I’m all decked out in a sexy dress and I’m looking wistfully out into the streets of what I assume is Paris.  I’m sure my weekend will be filled with fresh cut flowers, pastries and insane amounts of cheese and baguettes.  What? A girl can dream!

Roses for Me

There’s a new group gift at Rosary!  This lovely and artfully zipped dress is all you need to get your weekend started off right.  To get your own lovely version, complete with HUD of 10 different colour options, just join the Rosary group for 200L and then check in group notices to get your own.  Yay!

Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold

Hey Hey Fab Free!  While I hack my way through the loveliness of RL jet lag (mmm delicious) I have nestled myself inworld to try and stave off premature sleep.  I made my way to the peaceful fields of Whimberly, which are always a delight to prance through.  Aren’t the golden fields cheerful?  They sure are keeping my peepers from drooping…

More Roses

There’s a new group gift over at Rosary!  The very sexy bodycon dress I’ve got on is making me ever so happy right now, and I got it all by joining the group at Rosary for 200 Lindens.  There are two other equally as wonderful group gifts there too, making the fee exceedingly worth it.  This dress comes with a texture change HUD with several gorgeous colours and also a few patterns including paint splatters, tropical plants and even some fruit!   I’m sure you’ll love it.
