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


Blustery Day

Blustery Day

It’s been cooler out, and today the winds came. For the first time this year it actually felt like autumn in my part of the world. For that I am most thankful. I’m also thankful that I can be here, with you, sharing fabulous things I find. For this post I actually didn’t need to traverse the grid to get my hands on a few goodies. Instead I took advantage of Second Life’s version of distance shopping, the Marketplace. Every now and then I take some time to poke through Marketplace listings just to see what I might find. For this look my hair, my top, and my manicure are all Marketplace dollarbies. I hope you enjoy them!

Pr!tty

This decidedly wind-blown hairstyle is a 1 linden fatpack by Pr!tty on the Marketplace. It comes in a rigged and an unrigged version so you can resize the unrigged version. I really like these types of styles for photography. Since it’s a fatpack you’ll also get all the hair color choices available.

Catastrophic Creations

I love cacti and succulents. So it goes without question that I had to have this dollarbie Marketplace find from Catastrophic Creations. The rainbow colored flower pots are their nod toward Pride, which makes me like the shirt even more. This top is a unisex shirt that comes in a BOM system layer and a Maitreya Lara applier only.

TOASTED

Finally, my pink and bluish purple manicure is a dollarbie Marketplace as well. The single hud will apply the polish to your fingernails and toenails for a cute matching set. The tri-color polish comes in a Maitreya applier only.

Never Too Early

Never too Early

Alright, I know what you must be thinking… “Pru, it’s August.” However, while I understand the sentiment, we will just have to agree to disagree on whether or not it’s too early in the year for jack-o-lanterns. I like to refer to September through the start of November “Halloween Season.” I’m without a doubt, no shame at all that person who begins to decorate for fall Halloween starting the first week in September.  It’s been a long week and my favorite time of year is ever so near. So, I decided with a little help from Goddess Creations to get my fall vibes going a little early this year.

Goddess Creations 

This handsome carved pumpkin complete with brightly lit black candles is a free group gift at Goddess Creations. This guy is big, and will make a statement wherever you decide to make a home for him. With this gift you’ll also get an equally large held version of the pumpkin. Along with my new jack-o-lantern I picked up this too sweet pajama set for free with my Goddess Creations group tag. Who knew owls and cupcakes could be so cute together?! These pajamas come sized for Maitreya Lara only. Right now you can join the Goddess Creations group for free and get these two group gifts (and a few others) for free as well.

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit Season

Swimsuit season appears to have happened suddenly as if summoned overnight. Then again, perhaps it’s just me and it’s been arriving just as it always does and I’ve simply forgotten to notice. I’m happy it’s here either way. For the first time in ages I find I am excited about the sunshine, eager to spend time outdoors, rather than dreading the heat. Summer is here, and we can always find ways to cool off. Speaking of which, I found two group gifts to help with cooling off as the temperatures rise in my part of the world. I picked up a cute swimsuit set from Mimikri, and a delicious looking citrus treat from Andika. I also snagged a summery floral tattoo at Dappa. Keep reading and I’ll dish about each of these fabulous group gifts, and of course list the credits at the end. Stay cool my friends, it’s swimsuit season.

Mimikri

Even with the join fee of 100 linden, I couldn’t resist this group gift bikini and swimsuit cover at Mimikri. To my delight it was worth every bit of the fee. The floral print bikini is pretty and the sheer swimsuit cover gives the set an almost elegant look. The pieces can be worn separately. and comes in the colors shown.

Sizes Included: Maitreya  Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Legacy

Andika

Citrus treats are a favorite of mine, especially in summer. This frozen lime confection is a free group gift at Andika. The highly detailed display acts as a dispenser also. It will auto attach a spoon and a held version of the ice cream treat via touch menu. The held items have a bento hold and eating animation. The Andika group is free to join.

Dappa

This delicate floral upper body tattoo is a free group gift as well. It comes from Dappa, and it includes system/BOM layers and several applier options. Each gives the choice of a fresh or faded look. The Dappa group is free to join at this time, and there is more than one group gift available. Along with this beautiful floral tattoo, there are a few male/unisex tattoos. Don’t miss them!

Appliers Included: Signature, Omega, Slink, Maitreya, Legacy, Belleza *BOM/Classic System Layers also included

Hearts and Flowers

Hearts and Flowers

We are creeping closer to Valentine’s Day! All the hunts are full of red and pink and hearts galore! I figure… why fight it? So I dived into the holiday a bit early with the Cupid’s Crush Hunt!

Hearts Everywhere

I am in love with this cute cropped Tee from Mara’s Mysteries. This is the “Valentine Hearts Tee” and you can pick it up for just 2L and a little searching. The tee comes with a HUD to change the colors of both the hearts and the background to one of ten pre-set selections. The tee fits like a dream and is really well made. I see it having a long stay in my wardrobe!

Done Baking…

FabFree: Done Baking...

Hey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season :).  If there is one thing I won’t be touching for the rest of the month, it is a cookie sheet.  I baked WAY too much this year lol… and we all know where it’s going to sit… right on my hips.  Oh well.. It’s the holidays!  I know where to find my stretchy pants.

In my blog post today I am featuring a free group gift by Nerido and a free gift by Izzie’s at Shop & Hop.

She leaves a sparkle wherever she goes

Inworld group members of the Nerido group (199L to join), can head to the store and pick up the beautiful Dina Dress in Winter Ice, with a touch of added sparkle.  Panties are included and this is compatible with Maitreya and Legacy.

Play Day

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend, FabFree! Mine is kinda rushed but I knew I had to stop and smell the roses a little bit. And if I can’t do it in real life… I’ll just escape to the grid for a little play time.

Play Date

I found this super cute little denim and sneakers number over at Believe and had to snatch it up. It’s so adorable! And it’s the free Group Gift! Bonus is that the Believe Group is free to join too! You get the one piece tee and short overalls and the sneakers in your gift. I particularly like the sneakers cause there’s a little panda on them saying ” ❤ ” and it just makes me smile every time I see it.
