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.

Don’t Stop Believin’

Don't Stop Believin'

“Don’t stop believin’, just hold on to that feelin’…” ~ Journey 

Surely I’m not the only one with a brain full of useless (but totally fun) pop culture information. That said, when I saw this adorable (and free) group gift tee at Reed, I immediately felt like singing the Journey song “Don’t Stop Believin'” since that’s what the shirt says. The unicorn graphic is also pretty darn cute! Also at Reed are these pretty wristwatches that come in gold, silver (shown), black, and rose. They are free lucky letter board prizes, or you can purchase them all for 75 linden and not have to wait. The group gift shirt, and the Lucky Letter boards will require the Reed group tag, however the group is free to join.

Shirt Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), MeshBody Legacy

On my recent shopping excursion I also picked up some nail polish and eyeshadow from Demicorn. These pretty pastel nail polishes, and my vibrant eyeshadow are two of many group gifts at Demicorn. The Demicorn group is 100 linden to join. The polish has 6 color choices, and the eyeshadow has 5 color combinations to choose from. I have to say I’m very much enjoying these rich colors!

Nail Applier Included – Maitreya Only
Eyeshadow Applier Included – Catwa Only

Happy shopping Fab Free! Now you’ll have to excuse me while I return to my own personal rendition of “Don’t Stop Believin'” while dancing around my living room.

Study Time

Study Time

Hi Fab Free’rs, I don’t know about you, but I think coffee or cocoa and doughnuts are a required part of study-time. I also think that comfort is paramount. I like to study in my pajamas, sitting in my bed, or a comfy chair, and have sweet eats at my immediate disposal. lol Poor Herman, haha, he likes to see how close he can get to the doughnuts without actually eating them. Though if I don’t keep an eye on him he’ll sneak one and run off with it! That said, I better drink this coffee before it gets cold!

For this late-night study session I picked up the Fab Free group gifts from Sweet Willows and Partners in Crime. I also snagged the School Days Lucky Letter Board prize at Tentacio, and the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the how and where of each of these fabulous freebies.

Sweet Willows 

I don’t care how old I get, I’ll never be too old for cute pajamas. This unicorn themed set is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sweet Willows. The Fab Free group is of course free to join. In this gift you’ll get the tank and matching panties with a texture change hud that has 6 prints, and 4 solids to choose from.

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

Partners in Crime

The adorably sweet coffee and doughnuts set is the Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Partners in Crime. As I mentioned before, the Fab Free group is free to join. The “Little Coffee Break” set is a decor item that can be resized manually. The objects can also be unlinked and rearranged. However, be sure to make a copy first just in case!

Tentacio 

There are 4 Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio that do not require a group tag to participate. I picked up the “School Day” set for free from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Tentacio. This cute decor set includes the school uniform on a stand, which has a color change hud for the skirt and tie, an open school bag with books and pencils spilling out.

LovelySweet

Finally, the pose used along with the glasses, and book prop (the book in my photo is not the one included in the set) are from the free Stay at Home Club gift at LovelySweet. There are 4 total poses each with props in the “Introverting” bento pose set by LovelySweet. No need to join a group for this free gift.

Imaginary Tea Party

Imaginary Tea Party

I think a garden party would be just capital right now.  The kind of party where you get dressed up, have small sandwiches and inexplicably watch some polo.  Of course,  your drink will have a sprig of lavender or rosemary in it, and you’ll insist that one more jam tart would be too many while you eat it anyway.  Perfect!

The Perfect Dress

There’s a new group gift over at Belle Époque!  This dress is a necessary addition to all your garden party dreams.  The long red skirt and poppy-strewn top can be worn separately and look absolutely fetching!  This pretty outfit is sized for Maitreya bodies and to get it, just join the Belle Époque group for 10L.  There are many other gifts to pick up while you’re there (including a Fab Free gift!) so do take a good look around.

More Staying at Home!

The Stay at Home Club rages on, with new gifts continually being added to the very very long list of goodies.  I’m showing off two things today:  pretty FREE lipstick from Alma which comes with appliers for Lelutka, Catwa, Omega and Classic System Layers (when you land, the store is wayyyy behind you at the landing point, turn around and walk to the far side of the shopping area!).  The other gift I’m using is this pose from Unicorn that comes in a pack of three and is of course, completely free.  Awesome!

What do you imagine at your fancy garden party?

Dreaming

Dreaming

So yesterday was a day for reflection and I came to a conclusion… I need more fantasy in my life. I love showing off clothes and such but my heart is happiest with the RP and fantasy things. And what better way to get more fantasy than a long ride with Fiain my unicorn friend? I found a really lovely wood nymph-y dress to wear and to make it even more perfect… it’s free!

Am I dreaming

Dreaming Couture has set out this beautiful little dress: The Fairy Dress for all of us Fabulously Free group members. The dress comes in gold, silver blue and pixie green. There is one size and it seems to fit most. Be sure to take a look around the store when you pop over. There are several specials and some really cute things to add to your closet.

Enchanted Easter

Enchanted Easter

Hello Fab Free, thanks for being here. My guy Blue and I were talking the other day and he started telling me about a dollarbie hunt a Simply Shelby that had lots of purple, unicorns, crystals, and fanciful things. I didin’t need to hear anything else. Are you kidding me? Unicorns, crystals, and lots of purple? I was in!

There are 12 pink, blue, or yellow Easter eggs hidden around the grounds at Simply Shelby for the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. This hunt will last from now until April 14th.  All the prize eggs are priced at just 1 linden each. In each egg there is a landscaping or décor item that is either Easter or fantasy themed, and most of them include the color purple. With the exception of the flowery grass filling in, everything in the above scene is a dollarbie hunt prize.

Lastly, there are 2 additional shops with their own prizes as part of the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. I’ve included the ad for this hunt below to give you a preview. If you click on the hunt sign at any participating location, you should get a notecard with some hunt information and the landmarks to all 3 participating locations.

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Thunder and Silk

Thunder and Silk

There are times I kind of forget I’m of elven deca ent. I love to dressup in sweet modern fashions and jeans and tees. But sometimes, something comes along to remind me of the Fey and I just have to get away from the modern world and gallop through sunlit forests with Fiain my unicorn friend. I came across that ‘something’ from Noble Creations at the Gacha Garden Event.

The Thunder

This is the Thunder Suit Gacha from Noble Creations and it’s just 75L per play. It does sneak just barely under our limit here for FabFree but I still wanted to show y’all because this is one sweet outfit. Each piece is expertly built and a pleasure to wear. The suit comes in Black or White with four Rares and twelve commons.

Sizes Available

  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

And the silk

A little extra for our hair collectors… and aren’t we all?! Mina has set out a great new VIP Group gift for us. This Harper V2 and you can pick up the pack of blondes for free. The VIP group does cost a one time fee of 200L but , wow, is it worth it. There are tons of past gifts, the current gift plus you get a 10% discount on in-store purchases. I highly recommend it!

Pure of Heart


Pure of Heart

There is magic if you believe in it. There are also freebies galore if you know where to look. The current round of Hot Summer 35L Sales is an excellent place to pick up quite a few free gifts. You’ll find clothing, poses, and even some beachy furniture. Also, the items at the booths are either 35 lindens each or 50% off regular price. The event runs now through July 31st, and you will need to join the 35L Sunday group. However, the group is free to join. The hair and dress I’m wearing are both free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event.

The Hair

This cute pinned up hairstyle is a free Hot Summer 35L Sales event gift by DeVon. Just don’t forget that 35L Sunday group tag. The hairstyle comes in the single ash blond shade shown. I also want to mention that as far as I could figure, it cannot be resized, it can however be repositioned.

P.S. The DeVon Gift also includes a brown shoulder bag!

The Dress

This pretty little dress by Melt is another of the many free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event. It comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 6 jewel tones and black, for 7 total color choices. It comes in several sizes, and has an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars.

To All a Good Night

To All A Good Night
Happy Holidays Fab Free! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season full of happiness and joy. For today’s post I did a little “shopping” for myself. Actually, I did some gacha-ing. I sat at my home and Pocket Gacha’d until my little heart was content. I have to admit, it was content rather sooner than I would have liked. My linden wallet is quite thin! lol Still, I had lots of fun using the FREE Pocket Gacha HUD without having to go anywhere. I had such fun in fact that I wanted to share my experience with you, and show off the equally fun items I gatcha’d.

e.Marie

I adore over-the-knee socks. These pretty striped socks are from the e.Marie items within the Pocket Gacha this round. There are tons of fun socks, some holiday themed, some not. I lucked out and got one of the Rare sets. This set included a color change hud with several preset options, and optional twinkle lights. The lights have their own hud as well. Also, this is important, you’ll want to make sure that you’re looking at the e.Marie gacha key for your body. Pru wears Maitreya Lara, so I had to be sure to play the “Lara” key for the e.Marie gachas. If that sounds confusing, I promise it is easy, you’ll see what I mean when you scroll through the gacha keys on the hud. These cute socks by e.Marie are just 50 linden per play.

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

Cubic Cherry

It just so happens that the Cubic Cherry sweaters have the possibility of matching quite nicely with the e.Marie socks. These cute fluffy sweaters are just 75 linden per pay. There are tons of commons and a few cute Rares to be had. These are sized for Maitreya Lara wearers only.  Again I felt lucky when I pulled this cute unicorn common from the Cubic Cherry gacha key inside the Pocket Gacha hud. I love unicorns, and this sweater says “99% Unicorn” across the front.

Size Available: Maitreya Lara Only

99 Percent Unicorn
LOTUS

These deep brown eyes are from the Pocket Gacha by LOTUS. Every once in a while I like to change things up and wear eyes that are different from the ones I usually wear. I love the details in these dark eyes by LOTUS. They are also very similar to the color of my own eye in RL. The mesh eyes come with resize scripts, and there is a Catwa applier for the Catwa mesh eyes. The LOTUS Pocket Gacha is just 60 linden per play and there are 15 pretty earth toned commons, and 2 hauntingly pretty Rares.

Essences

I love it when Essences participates in events and things like Pocket Gacha. For this round of Pocket Gacha, Essences has a full set of  Catwa head appliers. There are 10 commons, in the Pale02, Dark01, and Dark02 tones, along with 2 Rares, one Medium02, and the other Pale01. Body Appliers are not included, but can be purchased at the Essences main store. This set of pretty faces is called Lydia, and she’s just 58 linden per play.

P.S. You can also pick up a Pocket Gacha hud at most (if not all) participating stores.

Here are the details, Merry Christmas, and Happy Gacha-ing!!
