Here’s a Quick One

Sintiklia 60L special_001

It must be Quickie Tuesday or something like that. I have another quick post for you I was away from SL for several days. I was in a wee tizzy because, O.M.G., I hadn’t gotten new hair in at least a week! I love being able to wear different styles in all kinds of colors.

New Hair

One of my notices included a notecard detailing the current event items and sales at Sintiklia. Currently there are two styles from last weekend’s Happy Weekend sales set up in vendors at the store. I decided to go with the Aba style. I love the curls and wisps in this one. There are many ways to style Aba, The package comes with left & right unrigged bangs & side bangs, the base hair and bun, 4 sizes of the hair with ponytail, and of course a color change HUD. The sizes are geared towards your head & breasts sizes for a perfect fit. All of that for only $60L! You can’t beat that with a stick. The Happy Weekend sales items are usually out for about a week. That being said if you like this one don’t delay going to grab it. Here’s the ad picture so you can see all of the ways to wear it.

New Dress

If you’ve been reading my posts over the month you may remember that I love Asian styles clothing. I popped over to Pixicat last Friday once I saw the FLF item there. She-bang! I found the Miya dress with the classic styling I adore. You get two dresses for the price of one. There’s the Tiger print and the Dragon print and I had a hard time deciding what print to wear. You also receive a color change hud that will only change the trim. It is still out for sale at the time of this post.

Sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy/Perky
  • Maitreya, Petite, & Flat
  • Reborn

Pixie Cat FLF 1-28-2023_001

Don’t miss out on these great deals you can find. Grab them while they’re still out! Have fun fabbies!

Peace,

Cre

Dreaming of Summer

Dreaming of Summer

Winter is getting me down with the cold, snow, and endless bouts of seasonal depression. I’m dreaming of summer, and this lovely tropical dress put me in the perfect mood for hoping for Summer to arrive sooner!

Visit Free Dove

Everything I am blogging tonight can be found at Free Dove. Read Aline’s original post here, which explains that the store will be disappearing soon and the reasons why this is happening. This may be your last chance to get all the free gifts there, so go quickly. You need to join the free Free Dove group to get all the gifts.

  • From Tastic’s booth, I am wearing the Bianca Heels and Cora Dress. The dress includes a HUD with several colour change options in the same flowery pattern, and the shoes include 10 plain colour choices as well. The dress fits Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, Hourglass, Tonic Curvy & Fine, Legacy, Kupra, and classic sizes (XXS-L). The shoes fit Maitreya, Belleza, Slink and Legacy.
  • The tattoo on my leg is one of the gifts from Leven Ink. It fits BOM, Omega, Belleza, Slink and Maitreya.
  • The hairstyle is one of the freebies from Firelight! available at Free Dove. Remember that all of the free hair is on the walls on the outside edge of the Free Dove outlet, so take a look to claim lots of free hair.

There are even more free goodies from Free Dove which can be seen in my close-up below, so keep reading!

Dreaming of Summer

  • From Amis, I am wearing a free pack of lipsticks, and free lashes with stones on them. Each item comes in several colour options. These are both appliers made for Lelutka Evolution and EvoX heads.
  • The pretty eyes are a free gift from HORL, which work as an applier on Lelutka EvoX heads.
  • Finally, the pretty Ukraine bracelet and the beaded rainbow bracelets are free gifts from Earthstones Jewelery.

We Will Miss You

We Will Miss You

As I am sure many of you have been, I have been sad to hear of Palomma Casanova’s passing and the upcoming closing of the Free Dove. It has always been an amazing spot to visit and it feels sad that it won’t be there anymore. It’s just one of those things that left such an impact on our virtual world. Palomma was a lovely and caring person, and she brought us all such joy with the new free gifts and hunts every month at Free Dove. She and the store will be missed, but I will be forever grateful for her kindness and generosity she provided us over the years.

I am showing some freebies you can pick up at Free Dove until it poofs.

  • The hairstyle is a gift from Exile, which comes in many colour options you can change via a HUD.
  • The dress and shoes both come from gifts at Furtacor’s stall. The dress includes several patterns and ripped texture options, and the shoes come in several colour options you can change via a HUD as well. The dress fits Lara, Petite, Flat, Legacy, Perky, Kupra, Kups, Reborn, Erika & Freya. The shoes fit Legacy, Maitreya, Belleza, Reborn, Kupra & Erika.
  • My nails are a free gift from Go! Makeup. They come with a hud that allows you to change them to several basic colours. These mesh nails come in sizes for Slink, Alice, Maitreya, Legacy, and Belleza.
  • Lastly, my lipstick is a gift from Shiny Stuffs. 3 samplers of lipstick are included, which work with Lelutka Evolution/EvoX appliers.

That’s all for now, FabFree!

Read My Lips

Read my Lips

I’ve got another post for you tonight to honour the late Palomma Casanova.  Saying goodbye to an SL institution is proving difficult for me, but I’m happy to go through the venerable building finding things I had not seen, and remembering things I had found there in the past.  Do visit before it all disappears, we know not when.

Zoom

My outfit tonight comes courtesy of Zoom at The Free Dove.  The dress and sweater come in two different gifts, but I thought they worked pretty well together.  The top comes with several different textures in the HUD, all of which are pretty fun.  Of course, to get them all you must do is join free group at The Free Dove, and click on the gifts.  Be sure to leave a note in the guest books while you’re there.  The latest news I can pass on to you is that (as far as I can gather it) there will be a meeting on the 26th with Patch Linden present in order to discuss possibilities for a permanent memorial.  I shall keep you updated if I hear more.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Stealthy!

Stealthic are participating in this week’s Fifty Linden Friday, and you’ll find that their offering is the lovely Clarity hair.  You’ll find it in all their different hair colours, each pack at just 50L each.  Get in now before it’s gone!

Happy Weekend,

xox

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!

Among The Fields Of Gold

Among The Fields Of GoldBy now you’ve heard about the passing of Palomma Casanova, maybe from Aline’s post here. I did not know her personally or ever speak to her, to my recollection. I can’t claim any personal grief or loss. But that isn’t to say that I’m not affected because really all of SL is affected. The Free Dove was an institution in Second Life for over 18 years. It was always around as a place to send new players or even veterans that needed to spruce up their avatars for free. In that way, The Free Dove and FabFree had the same mission. It was strange shopping at The Free Dove for this post, knowing that it’s creator is no longer with us and that it might be the last time I’m there before the doors close for good.

I picked up a few items and went to a pretty sim of sunflowers that I found on Palomma’s profile picks, that it appears she owned as well. The free items that I’m wearing from The Free Dove are:

  • Free sweater dress by Satus Inc in sizes for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass and Physique), TMP, and fitmesh sizes XS-XL
  • Free hair by Faga with a style HUD including all the colors
  • Free boots by Shoe-Ddiction sized for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, and Venus

To get these pieces for yourself you just need to be in The Free Dove group (it’s free to join). Then head over to The Free Dove to get the things that I’m wearing and so much more, all for free. There’s no word on how long the sim will remain so you’ll want to make the trip sooner rather than later.

Thank you Palomma, for your amazing contribution to the SL community. I have a feeling that The Free Dove and you will be remember and talked about long after the sim disappears.

Weekend Special

Weekend Special_003

Jumping on the Happy Weekend bandwagon that Julianna started today (you can check it out here). There are so many great items for sale including several great hair styles, I am wearing one from Wings that is on sale right now for only 60L per color.

My cardigan dress is from Meva and I love their realistic textures and colors, again only 60L at the Happy Weekend Sale.  The bra is separate so you can wear with or without.

A neat bonus at Meva is you can still buy all their past Happy Weekend Sale items for 60L, so check those out; I bet you will find many that you will love too.

These amazingly cute boots are a free group gift from S@bbia, the neutral color will go with anything.

Happy Weekend Sale is over tonight so hurry and check out all the great items before it’s too late.
