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


Pit Stop

Pit Stop

ROAD TRIP!!! Well not really, more like a LLllllloooonnnggg drive. Cause these days the car is another place we all feel safe in. To top it off you get a change of scenery and to be outside, for the most part. Have you ever taken a long drive and then pretended you were behind the wheel of another car? Oh! c’mon, you know you have. I myself wish I could be driving and old Hot Rod Roadster, Deuce Coupe hot rod, Ford Mustang, Mercury coupe. Get behind the wheel and feel all alpha male like. I think I’d be more like Arnie Cunningham to be honest.

Alpha Male isn’t all bad. This outfit I have on comes from a store named Alpha Male. I had no idea this store even existed. Until I was opening old Second Life Birthday gifts from last year. Yes, yes.. I’m one of those people in Second Life that has an object folder full of stuff you never open and an inventory from hell. That’s a whole other can of worms we need to keep a tight lid on. I decided to see if it was still around. Yes Alpha Male is, the group is free to join, and they have two male gifts out. These gifts include a whole outfit and shoes. With the one I’m wearing I even got these glasses. The outfit it called Nobody But You, it comes with the Two tone gray Jersey with a tiger design on the front. These leather looking Rogue pants. It also comes with some black leather gold chain sneaker/boot type shoes. Which aren’t pictured, because they only come in Slink. You can make them fit if you alpha your feet. All in all not a bad haul: two complete outfits for free. That doesn’t often happen for guys in Second Life. So ladies grab your guy and point him in this direction. If you do ladies, this store is in the same location as their counter part. Alpha Female and they have gifts too. Guys that are reading this, stop by Alpha Male and check these gifts out. They even have a lucky letter board for the men.

If you don’t mind this pit stop is over. I’m gonna climb back into my Hot Rod and peel out. Yeah, right, I wish. Hey that’s why we’ve got Second Life, I can peel out, and drive any car I like. Smell that rubber and eat my dust people.

Live Your Best Life


Living Our Best Life

I think I’m determined to visit every seaside spot on the grid. To say I am afflicted with wanderlust would be an understatement. This time Blue discovered a beautiful little slice of paradise where we could spend the days playing in the water and the evenings relaxing deckside watching the sun go down.

In preparation for a our excursion we picked up a few of the many free group gifts at Amias. These plush towels are an absolutely must-have. They come in a his and hers version and include a texture hud with quite a few choices to pick from. They are free with the Amias group tag. Coincidentally the Amias group is also free to join. Blue happens to be wearing another of the free group gifts at Amias. His leather bracelet also comes in male and female sizes, and has a color change hud. It’s always cool to find freebies that include options for male and female avatars. Have fun everyone!

Sunday Market

Sunday Market

Hello hello Fab Free’rs. Something occurred to me today. In my teens I might have worn this look to a party… now I still love the look, but I wore it to the farmer’s market. I think my age might be showing a little bit. lol Either way, I’m enjoying my Sunday and looking super cute doing so. I picked up just about everything for this fun style for free at the current round of ACCESS. It’s a birthday/anniversary round for the event and I have to say it’s the biggest round of ACCESS I have ever seen.

Aline did a gorgeous job of showing off some of the free ACCESS gifts as well in her recent pose “A Little Bit Boujee” so be sure to check that out if you haven’t already. As she mentions, ACCESS runs from now until July 8th, and the ACCESS group is free to join so there’s time if the sims are full. There’s the main sim and a cam sim open. Now I have a lot to share with you, so let’s get to it!

Volthair

So technically this is a mens hairstyle from Volthair, but I love it anyway. Even Blue said it looked good, score! It comes in a full fatpack with all the color huds, and a hairbase hud for Catwa and Omega compatible heads. The Fitz hairstyle by Volthair is free at ACCESS. To get your copy you’ll need to join the free-to-join ACCESS event group and wear the tag when you click the little teal giftbox.

Fake Society

I feel like this safety pin jewelry set by Fake Society is an updated much cooler version of the plain ol’ safety pins I once wore as jewelry. The set is also free at ACCESS, and it includes earrings (shown) and a septum piercing (not shown) in silver, gold, and black. I would definitely consider this set unisex. The septum piercing I felt was a bit big for my face even with some resizing, which is the only reason I chose to not wear it.

Kibitz

Another throwback jewelry piece that I love, stretchy black chokers. This one is the free ACCESS gift by Kibitz. I think the little heart locket is a cute addition. This free choker can be sized via touch menu.

Cult

All the rings I am wearing are part of the free ACCESS gift by Cult. They are called the Rou rings and they are sized for Belleza, Slink, Vista, and Maitreya hands. This bento set comes in silver, and gold.

Movement

I couldn’t resist this fun tumbler drink by Movement. I love the little horns on the lid, and purple is a favorite color of mine. This cup has a bento hold pose, and can be sized via touch menu. It’s also another awesome freebie at ACCESS.

Sixx

Finally, the top that ties this all together is the free ACCESS gift by Sixx. This black pushed up crop top with the iridescent looking alien face is super cute. It is also somewhat revealing if you don’t wear something under it. I dug through my closet and pulled out an undershirt by Vinyl to wear with my Sixx alien shirt, and it worked out pretty well I think. Otherwise, be bold and show some skin!

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

More Than Alright


More than Alright

There’s a whole wonderfully weird wild world out there and I’m proud to be living in it, even when things get heavy. To some the crowded city with its miles of pavement might seem bleak. I find the vast concrete jungle to be full of art and adventure, especially when I’ve got my partner in all things by my side. Clothing being an excellent form of artful expression; my corset top and his vest from BYRNE spoke loud of love as we spent the evening together just wandering the streets and exploring the underground of Tokyo Windhill City.

BYRNE – Male & Female Group Gifts

The sleeveless shirt Blue is wearing and the corseted top I have on are both free September group gifts at BYRNE. I’ve added the vendor photos for these gifts below so you can get a good look at the vibrant color and pop-art-like textures. Both gifts come in a blue version as well as a purple. To get your copy of these fantastic free gifts, head over to BYRNE and join the in-world group. Then you can grab both gifts from the group notices.

Wrong Turn at Netherwood

Sunset

Melanie Daniels: On Mondays and Wednesdays I work for the Travelers Aid at the airport.
Mitch Brenner: Helping travelers?
Melanie Daniels: No, misdirecting them.
~ From The Birds

I got a little misdirected while visiting Netherwood. You see, I was checking out Love’s post about her finds at Petite Mort and from the picture I thought, hey that looks like a nice peaceful sim to visit… but Nooooooooo……. I end up in some corner that looks like it’s straight out of an Alfred Hitchcock movie! Which is sort of suitable since I’m sporting a shirt with Birds on it. I’m sure Hitchcock would approve.

Where to get the shirt:

My shirt by Trashed is a great little hunt item from the Glam or Grunge hunt and can be yours for only 1L. You’ve already seen some items shown on the blog by Stan [here] and me [here] and Kat [here]. Now you can add this one to your wardrobe as well. Ladies there was a matching tank top for you in the box also.

Available shirt sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Adam

Getting Hairy…

I picked up a couple of “hairy” gifts for this post, including a hair for my skull and a beard for my face. The hair on top of my head is a free hunt gift as part of the St. Patrick’s Day hunt. You’ll find this in a little pot of gold at Volthair. It’s actually unisex and includes the needed hairbases for various mesh heads. It’s a long over the shoulder style that goes down the back and comes in white or brown.

My beard is from i.mesh, and I couldn’t resist the contrast of my rough and tough exterior, with the rose-filled facial hair. This too is a free gift with your free to join group tag. You’ll get the beard in black with red roses, white with blue roses, and silver with yellow roses (shown).

A Day Out

Thames River Valley_001

Kat showed us two beautiful FabFree gifts that you can get at the YM shop if you stop by in her posts [here] and [here] so I stopped by this week to take a look myself and was thrilled at the selection of group gifts the shop had lined up on the wall! I picked up a dress for myself while I was there.

Fit for a day out.

This dress I’m wearing by YM Shop is fit for a day out (or a date) and comes in all the sizes you need. The back is as lovely as the front, with contrasting straps in a bronze color that crisscross your back (I wish now I had gotten a picture of the back of this dress to show it off)! And it’s free with your free group join to the YM shop group!

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Original & Hourglass

Hair too!

I also stopped by Volthair where I picked up my new free hairstyle! This group is also free to join and you get the current group gift which is my long pretty hairstyle in the picture above. It includes a texture change hud with natural haircolors as well as one pastel color (lavender). It’s a beautiful all around style for casual wear or even for formal wear and for the price of free, you can’t beat it!
