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


Lavandula Angustifolia

Lavandula Angustifolia

I’m not sure if I’ve spoken ad nauseum about my deep love of lavender.  I’m sure I have, but that won’t stop me from doing so again.  There’s something enchanting about the thin stalks with tiny purple flowers, and the powdery, herbal scent that always makes me happy.  So, here’s to all things lavender!

Anniversary Fun

Swank is celebrating 7 years of shopping events!  And we all know that means that it’s time for our favourite tradition – gifts at all the stalls!  Just join the free Swank group, and then look for the glowing orb-type things at each display.  This is actually a super big event and took me a while to do it, so make sure you have a good swathe of time to get this done in.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE dress by ZEX sized for Freya, Isis, Venus, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physic, Tonic Curvy & Tonic Fine
  • FREE planter pallet by Lyrical Bizarre Templates

There really is A LOT to take in, so do enjoy yourselves!

How to Unwind

How to Unwind

The weekend may be coming to a close (though it’s a long weekend in my neck of the woods…sorry not sorry), and that calls for a bit of a decompress.  Some lucky board stalking plus some fun decorating always makes me chill out a bit and get me ready for whatever lies ahead!

First Some Candy

Candy Kitten is all about the sexy outfits, and they’ve recently updated their lucky boards with a pile of new goodies.  I picked up this top and skirt (in a very appealing holographic type of shade) by joining the group and waiting for my letter to come up.  The Candy Kitten group is a bit pricy at 400L to join, however they currently have 300L in store credit up on the wall, several gifts, and the new lucky boards.  It’s a good group to get in and stay in.

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Decoration Now, Come on!

FabFree at Fifteen is slowly winding towards it’s conclusion, sadly.  We’ve got still about a week left before everything goes poof, so make sure you make the rounds and pick up the deals and free gifts.  Today I put together a little space for myself using the gift and 15L item from Satus Inc.  The neon cat lamp is just 15L and can brighten up your space in a hurry.  When you click on the base, you’ll have plenty of colour choices so it can change depending on your mood!  Then, the cork board for photos is just a fun addition to any room.  You can place your own photos in the frames, which is always something that makes me happy.  It’s completely free when you activate your FabFree inworld group tag.  Sweet!  You’ve got until August 6th to make your rounds – don’t let them get away!

How do you unwind?

Study Break

Study Break

Time for a study break.  Bring on the milkshakes and donuts, because this chick is in need of some sweet distractions from all my extremely girly notebooks in which I’m clearly writing the name of my crush in big loopy letters.  What, it’s a hard job, but someone has to do it.

Access Time!

Is it time for another anniversary round of Access?   I feel like I was just talking about this a little while ago, and boom, it’s been a year.  Anyway, they’re celebrating!  Yay!  That means lovely gifts for us.  The great thing about Access is that there are some pretty great gifts for male avatars too, so do pass that info on to all the men in your life.   To grab them, just join the free Access group and click on the gift boxes at each stall.  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE top by Asteria sized for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, Kupra, Legacy, Perky, Petite
  • FREE shoes by Phedora sized for Freya, Kupra, Legacy, Legacy Male, Gianni, Maitreya
  • FREE rings by Meva sized for Kupra, Maitreya & Legacy
  • FREE books by Tentacio

Access is running until July 8th so you’ve got a bit of time.  If it’s full, try the cam sims below:

Bubblegum and Love

Bubblegum and Love

Happy Valentine’s Day my dear Fabbies!  I’m coated in candy, rolling in sugar and drowning in love today.  I am grateful for all the love that surrounds me – whether romantic, or friendly.  Make sure you’re telling everyone you know just how much they mean to you, then put on a cute outfit and get playful.  Why not.  Life is about celebrating!

Heart Eyes

The stores of the American Bazaar sim have banded together and created an event called Shades of Love to offer some great discounts on some really pretty items.  If you head over to the Seniha outpost, right outside you’ll find this awesome dress (a full fatpack too!) for just 25L.  You can change the panels to all sorts of different colours and patterns.  It’s a lot of fun to play around with.  Don’t wait too long, Shades of Love is only running until tomorrow!  Gooooo!

The Big Dig

The Big Dig

My part of the world got a massive winter wallop yesterday.  40 cm of snow fell, which basically means you had snow up to your knees.  The world is still digging out from said snowstorm, and it’s been quite nice to be able to watch the world turn into a snow globe from the comfort of my living room.  It put me in the mood to get bundled up in SL too, and head out into the snow (without the shivers!).

Feeling Cozy

I’m back with more 50L finds from Cozyfest.  I get so excited at these FLF hosted events, because there are really so many awesome deals and gifts.  Today I’m showing you the offerings from Tentacio and Nylon Outfitters.  The Tentacio 50L item is this really cozy and totally cute outfit.  It comes complete with everything you see me wearing – the scarf, the mittens, the cup, the bag… it’s all one perfectly sculpted look that I am soooo into.  It doesn’t actually say what it is sized for, but it worked perfectly with my Maitreya body.  It comes with an HUD to change the different parts’ colours too.  They have a few other items at their stand as well.   You’ll have to use an alpha to make your arms and hands disappear so that this outfit works.  The hat and hair is an excellent cold weather option courtesy of Nylon Outfitters.  Makes me feel cozy just looking at it!  50L is a great deal for a fun every day winter look.   Cozyfest is running until February 4th, so you’ve still got time if you haven’t visited yet.

Stay toasty!

Wild at Heart

Wild at Heart

I’m taking a little break from all the snowy sims (which I super love btw), and heading somewhere warm and classic for a little break from the drifts.  I’m conjuring up images of vast beaches – all empty, and jungles with mysterious ruins in them.  And of course, I’m wearing the most impractical outfit to take in all the scenery.  It’s ok. you don’t get blisters in SL!

Totally Utterly Uber

This latest round of Uber has a few surprises up its sleeve.  And by up its sleeve, I  mean under the Christmas tree!  Head to the middle of the event, and you’ll find quite a few gift boxes, all set to 0L, each filled with some super nice gifts.  No need to join a group here, it’s all free!  Here’s what I found:

  • FREE dress by Apple Blossom sized for Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, Perky and Petite
  • FREE shoes by Eudora sized for Legacy and Maitreya
  • FREE hair by No.Match with an HUD of natural colours to play with

Uber is going until January 22nd, so you have some time to visit!

I wonder if there’s a Starbucks in this jungle…

Seeking More Snow

Seeking More Snow

It’s been snowy the last few days in my part of the world, and I’m kind of happy about that, to be fair.  I like the sparkling whiteness, the silence that covers the earth when snow falls.  It just seems oddly magical and peaceful.  Plus it gives me an excuse to stay put!

Snowfall

Kaithleen’s have a new group gift which put me in the mood for all things sparkly and snowy.  This pretty dress is perfectly sweet and comes with an HUD to change the colour of the little metal belt.  It also has a hidden secret – it is a strippable dress, which means that you can give access to whoever you like to pull bits off you little by little.  It comes with options on who you would like to let have access to that, or if you don’t want anyone to access it at all. The Kaithleen’s group is currently 99L to join, and you’ll find this gift under the tree in the mainstore.

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya Petite

Tell me the Truth

It’s time for a new awesome group gift from TRUTH!  The Lullaby hairstyle is the perfect hair for either lounging around or dressing up – it seems to swing either way for me!  It comes in a full fatpack of colours, as well as a style HUD which lets you change the way the tendrils at the front fall, as well as changing the colour of the hair clip at the back.  The TRUTH group is currently 350L to join, and you’ll find this fabulous gift in group notices.

Traditions

Traditions

One of the things I’ve been missing in RL is the whole going shopping, then stopping off at a café after to mull over the things I’ve bought with a nice hot drink.  I have been avoiding all the locations of RL that involve humans, and for that reason I am very very very thankful that Second Life exists.  I can live out my shopping traditions, and there are no heavy bags to carry!  Woohoo!

Santa!

Vanilla Bae have got some amaaaazing lucky boards right now, all with their signature strippable clothing as prizes!  When you’re in the store, you’ll find several Santas sitting underneath each lucky board, which made me giggle for quite a while as I waited for my letter to come up.  I was lucky enough to win this super adorable romper – isn’t it sweet?  As mentioned, it is strippable – which means you can give access to people so they can remove the clothing from you.  If that’s totally not your thang, don’t worry – there’s a PG version in the box as well.  To grab this cute prize (as well as the other really really lovely ones), just join the Vanilla Bae group for 50L and then wait for your letter to come up!  Grab some friends and take your photo with the multiple Santas while you’re at it!  Oh, and don’t forget the other amazing group gifts – totally worth the 50L join fee!

  • Freya
  • Kupra

Oh Yes!

There have been some really nice free hair gifts floating around recently, and I’m super excited about this really lovely style from Exile!  It’s cropped and half up, and comes in a full fatpack of colours.  You can’t say no to that, right?  Even better, the group is free to join, making this really versatile look completely free!  Just click on the vendor with your tag active and it’s all yours!

Biscuit time!
