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

See you soon!

Pump It Up

DS Ghee bodysuit closeup 2_001

It’s the start of a New Year. Yes, indeed. Time to hit the gym to shed a few pounds, and tone up some sexy muscles. I made it to the gym today but watching all those men behind me work out & sweat (not the stinky kind) made me pretty darn thirsty. I couldn’t even think of exercising until I hydrate. Do I get points for just standing here looking fab?

The Right Stuff

Luckily I visited the latest round of Designer Showcase celebrating the 12th anniversary of this event. Most designer booths have gifts in them. You will need the Free to join group. I picked up this sweet bodysuit by Ghee that is perfect for working out as well as looking fetching. The Juliet bodysuit comes in the colors pictured.

Sizes

  • Kupra & Kups
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Reborn.

Why Not?

Okay, some might say my fine looking earrings are a bit much for the gym. I say hey, I have to look fab wherever I roam. The Mahogany Store has the Crystal earrings I wearing set out as a free gift at Designer Showcase. They remind of the old “bling” jewelry back in the old days of SL. They aren’t as primmy as the old ones so you can wear them knowing with confidence that you won’t crash a sim. Do you know that the owner & creator for the Mahogany Store started her SL life as a singer? Not only is she a fine performer, she’s a pretty awesome creator.

What’s your workout style?

Thinking in Pink!

LSR Jennifer body Suit #2png_001

As Mr. Hankey would say “Howdy Ho!” I have a quickie to tell you about. Then hopefully I’ll be back later today with a glam party look for New Years Eve,

Loving Me Some Pink

When I spied this in Aline’s Fabulous Finds post today it was screaming out my name. And best of all LSR has set this gift out for FREE! All I had to do was activate my Mesh Body Friends group tag (It’s Free to join). The things I love about the Sexy Jennifer outfit are: (1) it’s pink, (2) is a leopard print, (3) it’s a nicely-fitting body suit, and (4) the boots are included! You can’t go wrong with this one ladies (and guys too if you’re inclined).

  • Legacy Classic & Perky
  • Maitreya Lara & Petite

Counting Down

Foxton Berlin G&D Heels_001

Can you believe this year is nearly over and done with? When I realized this it was time to take a break from unpacking and reorganizing ye ole inventory. Traipsing around the grid scooping up all the goodies out there has worn this old gal out. I really can’t complain because I love doing it.

Get Thee to Cosmopolitan Now!!!

Cosmopolitan designers are once again spoiling us with tons of gifts. You do need to join the free Cosmopolitan Club & Lounge group. The start clicking on all of the lovely baubles hanging on the tree near the entrance. I picked up all of them, of course! I don’t know how much longer the gifts will be available so scoot over there if you want them.

Today I’m relaxing in this cute number from a new to me designer, Foxton. The Berlin outfit comes with a color/texture change hud that lets you change the shirt, skirt, belt, top, and shorts.  The styling is trendy and easy-going. You’ll love wearing this one. It is an all-in-one outfit though it looks like it has several pieces. The hud lets you pick from the following body sizes: Ebody, Legacy, & Maitreya.

My sandals are also a Cosmopolitan Advent gift from G&D. The Namika Sandals are tres chic! They are fitted for Belleza, Ebody, Legacy, Maitreya, and SLink. A fatpack hud containing beaucoup colors comes with the sandals. Another great score!

Don’t miss this last chance to get all the Cosmopolitan gifts.

TTFN,

Ba, Ba, Baboom

Baboom Christmas 12-11-2022_001

Heaux, Heaux ,Heaux as we say in Cajun country. The weather today is chilly but in a day or so it will get really cold. Like 23 degrees Fahrenheit (that’s 0 Celsius for you folk north of the border)! Glad I was able to wear this saucy little number at least once. I, as most of you, have been busily hitting the advent calendars around the grid.

Baboom is Back!

I was ecstatic to hear that Baboom has an advent calendar out. I hadn’t seen anything from the store in quite some time.  On day 9 I picked up this cute plaid outfit named Carina. You can still grab all of the previous days’ gifts for free at Baboom. Don’t you love when designers add those extra touches that makes a creation unique? This outfit has lots of them. It’s like having bells & whistles. Carina is sized only for the Maitreya body.

Be Merry!

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Rest in Peace, My Baby Boy

Ok FabFree… this post is about to get emotional. In this post, I will be talking about loss and grief so be prepared for that before reading.  Last month, I lost my beloved furbaby in real life. It was heartbreaking for me, as I had an incredibly special and close bond with my cat. It really broke me in half, but I have been working through my grief.  Apparently, there have been a lot of people in SL lately who have lost their cats and other pets in recent times. For those of you out there who may be going through this, just know you are not alone. I will never forget him as long as I live in both worlds and I will love him until the day I die.

Little Angels

The incredible creator Dalriada Delwood of MOoH! created a set of  “ghost” kitties for those of us who have lost our cats. I thought it was so beautiful that MOoH! came out with these, as it is a lovely little reminder of my beloved little guy who I can carry with me around SL. There are a variety of types of cats available in this set. At Next Up, you can play to win an angelic cat in different colourings and breeds for only 50L per play. Just wait for the cat you want to pop up and it’s yours for a low price.

This Next Up set was made for all of us who lost our furbabies. I always feel so touched and warm when creators make things like this for us. It just provides that little bit of comfort we need in our darkest hours. I do have a few more deals and free offers to show you as well, so keep reading below.

The Whole Place is On Sale

Opulein is having an awesome sale until November 30th. The sale is marking some sort of closing- I believe Opulein is moving to a new location after the end of November so the sale marks the transition. EVERYTHING in the store is on sale for 25 Lindens. Even better, when you join their free group you save another additional 5L off each item. For 20L a piece, some may wish to buy the whole store because their makeup is simply fantastic. I bought a set of eyeshadows and lipsticks which I love dearly.

Sizes Included (lipstick)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM

Sizes Included (eyeshadow)

  • Lelutka EvoX – BOM
  • Lelutka EvoX – HD Applier
  • Lelutka Evo
  • Genus

Another present…

Finally, I am wearing another group gift from FAGA that was released over the Black Friday weekend. This hairstyle comes in an exclusive colour pack. The hair ties only come in bright pink. It’s a great style and FAGA is so generous for giving us all of these awesome hairstyles! FAGA‘s VIP group is temporarily free to join so pick up all the great gifts while you can!

Blessings. Thank you for listening. 💓

A Night on the Town

Belle Epoque Anniversary hunt 3_001

It’s time for a fancy night off. Time to out on something dressy and head out into the night. My mystery date has sent a car to pick me up. Looks classy to me. I’m ready.

Belle Epoque Hunt

The Belle Epoque 7th Anniversary Hunt runs until the 30th of November; you still have time to hunt. The best part of this hunt is that everything is free, There are cupcakes scattered around the store. Find one and you’ve got a new gift! Read more about the hunt in Aline’s post. I picked up most of the hunt gifts but today I’m showing you the Angie dress. This lovely frock shows some skin but you’re still covered. It comes in this lovely shade of purple. A great outfit for a night out. Angie is sized for Ebody, Legacy, Maitreya, Juicy & Perky.

Belle Epoque Anniversary hunt closeu 11-12-22_001

While hunting I also picked these cute earrings by Arkivet – the Strawberry Snail earrings. Aren’t they adorable? I’ll have to wear them to the next snail race! You can also see the Hiral eyeshadow and Daffodil lashes I’m wearing.  I do feel festive.

You folks have fun while I figure out how to get back to regular lashes! HA!

Feeling Cute

Glitterati FF FLH 7_001

Hello! Today I will show you gifts from the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt and the latest round of Cosmopolitan. All of the recent events with gifts and great sales have been keeping me busy. I am always awed by the skills and generosity  of SL’s creators. I am always thankful for gifts. In the near (or far) future I need to engage in everyone’s favorite task in SL – making peace with my inventory. Wish me luck with that task!

Another Great FabFree Hunt

Glitterati by Sapphire and Stunner Originals are only two of he many stores participating in the FabFree Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt.

Today I’m wearing a free outfit from Glitterati by Sapphire. It includes the top and shorts and is sized for:

  • Classic sizes XXS – L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique

Stunner Originals contribution is a sweet set of lipsticks. Sky comes with an applier HUD for Lelutka Exo X. There are 12 lovely shades to choose from. It’s priced at $5 so it’s a pretty awesome deal. If you own an Evo X head you definitely want to get it.

One of this month’s free group gifts at Cosmopolitan is the Sigma Key Earrings. There are 2 color options: gold or silver. You do have to join the free Cosmopolitan group. I know I’ll wear these often.

Hope today is the start of a great weekend for you. Sorry for the short post; my brain is on vacation : )
