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


Crowned

Crowned

Hello again, FabFree. After Aline’s post about all the great loot over at the Halloween Shop and Hop I had to go check it out myself. And if you haven’t gone over yet… why not? There are so many gifts, plus gachas and great deals to be had.

Crowning Glory 

Let’s start at the top, shall we. I am sporting the October Group Gift from Luas and it’s just spectacular! This is the Solar Crown and you can pick it up for free if you are a member of the Luas group. While there is a one time fee to join the group, it’s well worth it just for the tons of free gifts. There’s even a whole wall of past gifts to pick from. The crown comes with a HUD to change the colors of thermoses, the halo and the horns.

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’ 

Now for our Shop and Hop gifts. My new hair style is the free gift from Sintiklia called “Hazel”.  I love the wispy bangs which you can turn on and off if you please. You also get a HUD for the “Classy” set of 32 colors. Plus, you get a Tinter so you can get that perfect shade you want.

My new spell binding top and shimmery skirt are both from the “Fionna” gacha in the Annex shop. For just 25L per play, I was able to pull the top and the skirt in my favorite color: purple, of course! Now if purple isn’t your thing… Fionna comes in six colors for you to choose from.

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!

The Maple Leaf Forever

The Maple Leaf Forever

Happy Canada Day Fab Fam!  I’m all about the Red, White and Red today, happy to celebrate this awesome land!  As is my tradition, I always throw a bunch of  Canadian stereotypes your way on July 1st, so hold on to your beavertails, because it’s going to be an h-e-double-hockey-stick of a ride, eh!

Sorry!

For our maple-syrup guzzling contest (which of course is tradition on Canada Day), as well as for our moose-wrangling competition, you’ll need the perfect Canadian shirt!  Over at The Annex, they’ve got you covered with a free group gift!  On joining their free group, you gain access to this cute and clearly Canadian top which was made especially for chasing raccoons away from your poutine!  If you’re looking for some American-style celebratory gear, they’ve got a bunch for the 4th as well.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

We the North

This little Canadian headband is courtesy of Sugarplum Boutique!  They’re getting you ready for all the festivities (which of course are socially distanced this year), with excellent Maple Leaves to catch any lumberjack, Mountie or sexy Prime Minister’s attention.  They only cost 10L on Marketplace!  So cool!

Well my friends, I hope that this little foray into Canadian craziness has amused you all!  To all my fellow Canucks out there, Happy Canada Day and may the butter tarts be ever in your favour!

All aflutter

Hearts a flutter

Hey FabFree. Are you ready for some awesome Role Play goodies? Both the free kind and the outta your wallet kind? I swear every time I go to We ❤ Role Play... I am not going to spend a lot of Lindens. And every time… I fail. But what can I do? The designers and venders are so gorgeous and I need that millionth pair of wings! Right?

Take flight

Anyway, We ❤ Role Play is in full swing and it’s loaded with free and cheap gifts. My first stop was at the Annex booth where I grabbed this fantastic chiton “Livinia”. I love the soft rose pink and the details in the belt and hem are gorgeous. It does leave you… um… exposed on the left side. But that is a historical detail. So I just made some my hair preserved my modesty.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza -Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Collared

I also picked up this beautiful necklace for free from Una. I don’t normally bother with much jewelry but this piece is so pretty. The details and textures are really well done and this is one piece I will be keeping and wearing.

 

The We ❤ Role Play event runs until the end of May for your shopping pleasure.

Keep Staying Safe at Home…

Tale as Old as Time

I have another stay-at-home themed hunt to share with you! This is a 10 L hunt, so read below for details on how to get this gorgeous dress. It is the grey version of the Lily Dress, which is part of one of the fatpack prizes available at The Annex. Paired with this free hair from EscalateD called Annica, this look is so elegant. In this post I will be featuring this hunt, but make sure to check out the credits at the end to get all the details of how to achieve this full style.

Another Quarantine-themed Hunt

The Annex is having their own “Safer at Home” hunt, where you are looking for a thin prim which looks like the blue logo seen on the vendor photo below. There are 5 of these around the sim- outside in front of the store (all around the outdoor of the sim- so explore around), and inside the store. In each prize, there is a full fatpack of a new release. All of the items available in the hunt are seen in the vendor photo below. Each hunt item costs 10 L each, which is a great deal for a full fatpack. Each item in the hunt comes in sizes for Maitreya, Freya and Hourglass. This hunt ends on April 27, so get over there quick!

Pastel

Pastel

Hey FabFree! I’m taking a day off from searching the Grid and teleporting hither and yon. January is such a good time to just cuddle up someplace warm and read a book. I tend to “nest” on days like this. Lots of pillows and soft blankets. Maybe a nice hot cup of tea or cocoa. Doesn’t that sound delightful? Oh, and of course, you have to have something super soft and cozy to wear, right?

Soft Pastel

The Annex has me covered with that last one. This is the “Lynn” dress from Annex and it’s the current free gift for members of the Teleport HUB group. I love the soft texture and the pastel pink. Doesn’t it look like it made of that fleece blanket material? Perfect for a winter day inside.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Now, I’ve talked about the Teleport HUB Group before but let me refresh your memories. You can join Teleport HUB at any shop that offers the group gifts and it will only set you back 10 little Lindens. That one time fee will open up a huge selection of designers offering lots of gifts.  I have noticed the many designers do leave the Teleport Hub gifts up a bit longer than a regular group gift. But I don’t mind a ‘relaxed’ renewal no and then.

Celebrating With You Too!

Hey there Fabulous Readers!  Yesterday, I was celebrating Canada Day with Aline [HERE], and today, I’m helping my American friends get ready to celebrate the upcoming July 4th holiday!

It’s A Dixie Thing

The Annex has a very nice red, white and blue plaid, knotted top for you to pick up as a free group gift with a free group join!  It’s called Dixie – Americana, but I think it would be a nice top for any old day!  I added the bra underneath, but it could be easily worn without one, if you were feeling sassy!

  • Belleza Freya

ENJOY!

Solo Showtunes

Solo Showtunes

I got bored being cooped up indoors all day.  It’s too cold out, the wind is howling, the snow is swirling, and all I want is to break free!  I found a hot dress, put on some heels, and this great headdress, picked up my hairbrush and belted out showtunes to my adoring audience!  Oh, and by audience, I mean the dust bunnies!

One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I found this supersexy mini dress in my meanderings through the grid.  It’s a striking white shade with some intense cutouts.  The back is extreeeemely daring, so I spared your eyes and kept facing front!  You can grab this hot little number at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  Just join the group for free, and then click on the posters near the entrance to grab your free dress! It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Gacha Obsession

Are you a Gacha person?  I totally am, it can be a bit of a problem!  Sometimes though, I just play each machine once and see what kind of an outfit I can put together!  I got this month’s Pocket Gacha HUD, and played a few of the gachas.  I managed to grab these sweet heels from Belle Epoque (50L) , the fantastic peacock headdress by The Annex (75L) , and even the cute pose by Belle Poses (which comes with the hair brush) (60L).

The dustbunnies are clamouring for an encore!

Ocean Breeze

Snapshot_009Well hi there Fabulous Readers!  I have a crazy night so I am going to keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to stop by and let you know about an awesome retirement sale at The Annex!  The sale was actually set to end yesterday, but the sale prices are still up today so you can take advantage of about half the store being priced at 50L per item.  All non fit-mesh/mesh body compatible clothing has been marked down to 50L.  I picked up this adorable windblown Ashley Dress for 50L, beautifully textured and works just fine with my Maitreya body!

My Nova Hair by Lelutka is available at The Hair Fair as a free colour demo – so you get the entire fatpack, priced for 0L!

xoxo  Night!
