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


It’s Time for Some Retail Therapy

Autumn Day

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  I decided to spend some time today exploring the Whispering Windz sim.  If you are looking for a lovely place to visit, I’d highly recommend taking a journey there yourself.  It has meandering paths that work their way through a beautiful fall landscape.  Before my idyllic afternoon, I picked up a couple of free gifts that I am excited to share with you.

But First, Lipstick

I decided to check out the 18th Round of MIIX Event this morning, and I’m so glad I did.  Right at the landing zone, there is a free gift set out for members of the Hype Events ::: News and Offers ::: group, which is free to join.  The Make Me Matte Lipstick Set from Opulein is compatible with Lelutka Evo and Evo X, Genus and Catwa HD Pro mesh heads.  It features two creamy shades, pink and taupe, in BOM appliers as well as a tattoo layer.   I opted for the blush-colored version, but either one will leave your lips looking lusciously soft.  I’ve included a close-up photo below so you can get a better view of this gorgeous makeup.  While you’re at the event location, you might want to tap the giveaway board for a chance to win a Lelutka or Furtacor gift card and Blogger Room access.  Good luck if you decide to enter!

‘Tis Bat Season

I am a kid at heart and look forward to October 31st every year, so I decided to get my Halloween vibe going a little early.  Over at Mister Razzor Body Shop, I joined the group for just 10L and picked up a free ear tattoo as a group gift.  It is comprised of a small cauldron of bats – or is it a colony?  I am not exactly sure, but I call it adorable!  Created exclusively for the Lelutka Evo X mesh head, this gift includes a 100 percent version as well as a lighter 75 percent option.  I love how it is playful the design is!

Lost in Thought

Weekend Sales

I always look forward to the 60L Happy Weekend Sale, which runs Saturday through Sunday.  With a very reasonable price tag of just 60 Linden dollars per item, you can pick up some wonderful additions to your SL wardrobe without breaking the bank.  Today, I scored the Jola Dress from Meva.  With ruffled short sleeves, a laced bodice, and a flirty hemline, this ebony frock is ideal for early fall, and I have to say, the color is perfect for October.  If you toss in a witch hat and broomstick, it could even double for a Halloween costume.  The folder includes versions for the standard and petite Maitreya mesh bodies.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Maitreya Lara Petite

Over at [The Forge], I found another Happy Weekend offering for just 60 Linden dollars – a pair of over-the-knee stiletto style boots.  They look like they were tailor-made to coordinate with my new dress.  I really like the added detail of the golden buckles, which contrast beautifully with the buttery soft leather of the footwear.   Fortunately for me, my avatar has no problem maintaining her balance on the slender heels of these curve-hugging boots.  I opted for black to coordinate with my dress, but you can also find the Hellen Boots in seventeen other colors (each sold separately).

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Lara

Until next time, happy shopping!

#LoveWins


#lovewins

Hello Fab Free! So as we all know by now it’s Pride Month, and I am loving all the enthusiasm I’m seeing. My Love. Your Love. Her Love. His Love. Their Love. Love wins! To continue the celebration and the proud support, I’m giddy with rainbow goodness from Reign and Luas.

Thanks to the several rainbow themed Saturday Sale items that are still available at Reign, my shoes and my drink are the most colorful they have probably ever been. The delicious looking drink comes in 2 versions, one with a static hold, and one with an animated hold. The shoes are in black, white, glitter black, and glitter white (shown) version, each in multiple sizes. Both of these rainbow-tastic Saturday Sale items at Reign, and the ones not shown here, will be available at the fabulous price of 75 linden each until this coming Saturday.

Luas Yona VIP Gift June

This long sleeve belted dress is the June group gift at Luas. It comes with a texture change hud that lets you pick from 4 presets each for the main part of the dress, the belt, and the graphic across the front. All things considered, the rainbow options were just irresistible for me anyway. This cute as heck dress comes in a few sizes and is free to all Luas VIP group members. At this time there is a one time join fee of 50 linden, and there are multiple previous group gifts available.

Hey there Fab Free’rs! I’ve got a quick group gift from Caboodle to share with you for this post. Really, this loose-fitting crop top by Caboodle is just too cute to not share. It comes in a few sizes, and includes a texture change hud that lets you change the color/texture of the top and the sleeves. I love the shiny almost holographic choices, and there is a super cute illustration done by an associate of the Caboodle clothing designer.

Virtually Tropical

Virtually Tropical

You know, I’ve never been to an actually tropical place.  I’ve been to hot places, warm places, and absolutely freezing places, but never somewhere I would classify as tropical.  I think I’d be pretty good at being in a tropical place.  Wait, would I though?  I’m born and bred in the frozen North of the world, and when I really think about it, perhaps my constitution isn’t really up to the frizzy hair and massive bugs.  That’s ok though.  I’m on the grid where these little problems aren’t a thing!

Dressing it Up

For my virtual jaunt through the tropics, I found a great dress to keep me virtually cool.  I picked up this beauty over at Safira and I gotta say I love the pinks and turquoises.  I’m not lying when I say they’re my fave!  I got this dress by joining the Safira group for 50L and then heading upstairs to the massive gift wall.  You can build a whole wardrobe out of just the gifts on that wall!  Safira is a great group to join and stay in, because members are continuously spoiled!  Woot!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

See you all in the tropics.  But not you, you terrifying buggy things!

Normal People


Normal People Scare Me

Hello hello Fab Free! Welcome back to the blog. As much as the saying on this shirt makes me giggle, I really don’t believe in normal. It’s all just relative. So before I jump in to telling you about this awesome new gacha set by Oubliette, and a cool new group gift hairstyle by Pink Hustler, I’ll present to you a quote I’ve always liked.

“What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.” – Charles Addams

The Outfit – Yep, you read that right, I said the gacha word. That means this too cool cami style top and the even cooler shorts are part of a super cool set that you won’t want to miss. Oubliette has their Neo Witch gacha set out at Gachaland. This gacha is just 50 lindens per pull. There are 10 commons and 1 rare, along with 1 event exclusive gift awarded after 20 pulls. Each piece comes in several sizes. I’ve included a copy of the gacha key below so you can get a look at all the goodies.

Image may contain: 3 people, people standing and text

The Hair – One of Pink Hustler’s group gifts is this shaggy mid-length hairstyle that I’m kind of in love with. The gift includes a color hud with what I’d call an “essentials” variety of color choices. To get your copy of this group gift hairstyle, you’ll need to join the Pink Hustler group. There are quite a few group gifts available, including hairstyles, mesh/bento nails, and a few other clothing/accessory items. The Pink Hustler group has a hefty, but worth it join fee of 500 linden.

Here are the details:

One Of Those Days

One Of Those Days

Well, I’m not usually one for expletives, but it just may have been one of those days.  One of those days where your car won’t start, or you don’t have the right change for coffee at Timmy’s (my Canucks, where you at!?) or you get an eyeful of mascara wand while you’re putting on your makeup.  I dunno, it’s one of THOSE days.  The only thing required right now to make it all better is a free outfit, free shoes, and a heck of a lot of chocolate.

Queen B*

Ah, Queenz – calling them like they see them.  I know I just posted news of some new group gifts there, but guess what, there’s another new one!  It comes in two pieces (the top has three different sayings on it, some a little milder than the one I chose, and the skirt in three different coordinating colours that you can change in the HUD).  It’s fun, sassy, and great for mixing and matching.  One of my fave things!  You can grab yours by joining the Queenz group for free, and clicking on the vendor poster.   There are a whole bunch of other awesome things there too!

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya

Which Way?

There’s a new lucky board over at Mosquito’s Way, and I thought these little boots where kinda made to go with this outfit.  I love the little rhinestone appliqués and of course the fact that they’re purple.  They come sized for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya, TMP, and the Classic Avatar (it comes with an Alpha Layer too!)  and all you need to do to get yours is join the Mosquito’s Way group for free and wait til your letter comes up!  There are group gifts and other lucky boards there too to keep you busy!  Nice!

Now, I’m hoping things are going to turn around this evening!  Have a good one!

Of China Cups and Cute Dresses

Of China Tea Cups and Cute Dresses

As I sit here drinking my morning tea (Nina’s, Marie Antoinette, of course), out of a little china teacup decorated with curlicued flowers and a small cottage, I think that perhaps the taste from the gardens of Versailles could be slightly improved if I had my hair tied with a fancy ribbon and I was wearing a really nice dress.  Well, the best I can do right now is find a really cute dress in SL, and you know full well it’s FREE!

She’s a Bombshell

I found some cute group gifts over at Bombshell for you.  There are two lovely little dresses for you to grab, including this sexy cut out mini dress that comes in two versions: blue and ombré blue.  It’s just so visually interesting and appealing that I may have some trouble changing into something else!  To get your own, just join the Bombshell group for FREE and it’s all yours!  (oh, the vendor pic at the shop looks a little different from what’s in the box, spoiler alert!) Easy peasy!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Maybe if I drink another cup of tea a RL fancy dress will materialize… that’s how it works, right?

Feelin’ Friday

Feelin' Friday

It’s Friday everyone!  The mystical land of freedom and joy (well, at least for those who don’t work on weekends, I suppose).  Today I feel like letting my wild side out a little bit, because we all know that doesn’t happen often enough (cue laugh track)!  I may just have found the outfit for that perfect Friday feeling!

Lana at it Again

Lana has been making some really interesting clothing recently, a lot focused around some appealingly shiny and semi transparent plastic material of some ilk.  If you’ve been itching to try it out but aren’t quite sure what it would look like on, there’s a perfect chance to get your mitts on some right now as a FREE group gift at the mainstore!  The Abi skirt is a shiny holographic concoction with an HUD included to change to all sorts of amazing colours,  and I kind of really love it!  Join their group for free, pick it up (and the other gifts there, while you’re at it) and you’re good to go!

Sizes

Liaising with Love

Love mentioned the other day that there are a whole bunch of goodies over at The Liaison Collaborative.  Join their free group, and you’ll be able to pick up a host of cute things, including the hair I’ve got going on by Iconic!  It comes in a whole fatpack of awesome colours and just looks absolutely chic and gorgeously mussed, in my humble opinion.  The group gifts are all on the little carts hanging around the middle of the event!

Time for some craziness, hold on tight!

Surfin’ Safari

Surfin' Safari

I am a small person.  I don’t take up much space in the world, and there’s something super counter-intuitive about a really small avatar driving a really big car.  I found myself in a 1950’s hulk of a vehicle by the beach today, and I can honestly tell you that I am not mad about it one bit.  The sun is shining, and so are the beach balls so let’s dive in!

Everybody Surfing

I am 98% sure that I would be horrible at surfing in RL, but in SL I am a pro at pretty much everything.  I may even have won surfing awards at some point over my years on the grid (who can remember, I’m sure I have a medal in my inv somewhere…), but I digress.  How cute is this look from Ersch?  Sure, it’s most likely lingerie, but I say flout the rules.  There are some fairly transparent bits to this adorable outfit, but to that I say “Pish-posh!  To the beach we go!”.   I got this two piece set (that comes in three different versions, the other two with daisies and flowers on them), by joining the Ersch group for 75 Lindens.  That’s a deal and a half!  Go grab it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
