Trouble

TroubleHappy Tuesday! I’m just popping in to show you my cute free outfit!

Places I’d Never Been

Envious is a new to me store. The clothes there are really fun and sexy. I’m wearing one of the free group gifts, aptly named Trouble. It includes both the sweater and jeans. The jeans are flared at the bottom and come in different lengths depending on what foot shape you’re using, which is a nice touch. In addition to the Trouble group gift, there are two other nice free group gifts as well.

Sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The Envious group is free to join, but there was a group notice saying that it is only free temporarily until January 1st. Obviously we are far past that so I’ve no idea how long you’ve got to join the group and get the gifts. Better go now! 🙂

Love in the 80’s

Love in the 80's

I’m super ready for all things V-Day.  Not because of romance and all that stuff – but just because the pink and red and hearts and candy put me in a good mood in the depths of winter.  I don’t necessarily need a bouquet of flowers and a declaration of undying love (though that’s nice too) to enjoy the riotous pink of Valentine’s Day.

Feelin’ Fruity

Tooty Fruity’s group is still free to join for just a few more days, so get in now before the price goes back up.  I grabbed these cool heels that lace all the way up my legs for free just by activating my tag (and there are loads of colours in the HUD).  There are a bunch of lucky boards and MM boards too, as well as the January group gift to pick up, so don’t sleep on this one!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Back to Witchwood

As Allison told you earlier today, Petite Mort & Oubliette are currently hosting one of their fun hunts, where every item is priced at 20L or less.  I couldn’t resist the jacket Allison showed us, though I went in a sorta crazy 80’s direction with the hot pink tube dress (10L) and the heart-shaped glasses (10L).  There are loads of different items on this hunt, so you can mix and match a look pretty easily.  I’m a sucker for that kind of thing!  The Witchwood Valentine’s Day Hunt is running until February 14th!

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

 

Hearts and Kisses in your direction!

We Will Come Rejoicing

Emerald Couture $55 Thursday_001

While out wandering with my sheepies today we came across this serene little chapel in the woods. That old hymn, “Bringing in the Sheaves” popped into my twisted little brain and I started singing “bringing in the sheep.” My Ickci sheep can be testy at times and sometimes just plain baaaaahhhhdddd. See the one on my left jumping in the air – I can’t take them anywhere! I’ve been trying to herd them into to chapel for a dose of redemption. Wish me luck!

Get Cute for Under $75L

One of my many subscriber groups is the Fifty5 Thursday sales. I get a notecard with pics & store landmarks. You can subscribe by clicking on one of the subscriber boards you’ll likely find by the sale items. Emerald Couture had this really cute outfit listed. I picked up this lil number, Allie, for only $55L. This ensemble is too cute! You get the top, skirt, and shoes. The sale version comes in the colors/patterns shown, 

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HGF & Phy
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

After I made my purchase I spied a whole bunch of group gifts, mania boards, and lucky boards & chairs. I did what any self respecting blogger would do. I joined the free Emerald Couture group and scooped up most of the gifts. Hear me now: this is a great group to join. The lucky boards & chairs quickly turn over in a very short time. All said & done I managed to leave with 23 different packages, SCORE! I find the clothing selections varied and versatile. And the zero $L join fee is a huge plus. 

There you have it folks! A Creola Quickie!

In Memory of Our Fallen Dove

Goodbye Paloma C 002_001

It’s sad to say goodbye to someone has influenced so many of us in Second Life. Also known as Dove, Palomma Casanova, owner & driving force of The Free Dove has passed way. Our dove will now soar high absent from pain or illness. Rest in blissful peace dear. Know that you will be missed.
In her own words(copied from her profile):

“Paloma means Dove in Spanish….
Dove is the symbol of the Holy Spirit
Dove is the symbol of peace
Dove is the symbol of giving & helping.”

You will find several posts about The Free Dove and Palomma on our blog as we pay tribute to her. See Aline’s posts here and here as well as Allison’s post here. I picked up this lovely gown at The Free Dove yesterday. Over the years I’ve picked up many, many items from the place. I couldn’t even calculate how much money I’d have spent on clothing and other items if I hadn’t gotten all of it from The Free Dove. You will need to join the free group to pick up any of the items.

Details:

My free Camilla gown by Black Angel Store comes with a texture change hud with five textures/colors each for the top, skirt, & straps. You do have to join the It is sized for:

  • Classic sizes (xxs – L)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Physique & Hourglass
  • TMP

See you soon!

All You Ever Did Was Wreck Me

All You Ever Did Was Wreck MeIt’s amazing how many fantastic paid groups have been temporarily free to join lately! Every time I turn around there are more and more…if only I had the group slots for them all. The two that I’m showing today weren’t a problem though, because I was already in them. I’m rambling. On to the free group gifts for free to join groups!

Loa

The Loa group is temporarily free to join until February 1st. There is a selection of free group gifts for the taking, including the free Betty skin that I’m wearing. It’s a full “blogger pack” of all the Lelutka and Velour shades, with options for freckles and brows and such.

Corvus

I do love Corvus. Here you’ll find clothes, tattoos, skins, and more in a bit of a darker style. And, you guessed it, the group is temporarily free to join! I’m not sure how long it will be free, the notice just says for a limited time. So, go now, I guess? While you’re there you’ll find a wall of free group gifts AND like 20 lucky boards full of great stuff. I’m wearing one from each thing – my tattoo (as a BOM layer) is one of the free group gifts and my dress is a free lucky board prize.

Dress sizes:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite

That Familiar Feeling

That Familiar Feeling

Ok, this chick needs some retail therapy.  Shocking, I know.  The call of the shopping bag beckons again!

Feelin’ Fruity

Tooty Fruity is currently free to join!  That’s exciting news, since they give some awesome monthly group gifts.  Not that it’s usually super expensive to join (49L for as long as I can remember) so this is just a nice little treat.  It will be free til the end of the month.  I got this quite lovely shirt as their latest group gift.  You can just see the iridescent polka dots that shimmer in the light.  Is black not your thang?  Well, luckily for you there is an extensive HUD to change to all sorts of lovely colours.  Yay!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

While I was putting my outfit together, I looked through the items on sale for Fifty Linden Fridays, and happily I stopped by Wasabi for this fabulous hair (in a full fatpack of colours) as well as Erratic for these amazing leather pants (there’s also a gold version!).  They’re technically only available until midnight tonight, so head on over quick for a cute and affordable lewk.

Pant Sizes

  • Kupra

Happy Friday!

Between Christmas and New Years’, I am always beat at the end of it all from all the partying that occurs during the holidays.

My eyeshadow and lipstick comes from a set of makeup which only costs 25 Lindens at Opulein. They still have a whole room of packs of makeup for 25L a piece, so it’s a great deal.
