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!

Right now, you can pick up this very cool open shirt from Byrne for free when you wear your equally free Byrne Group tag. There is a matching look for the ladies as well.

Hey hey, Fab Fam! Are ya’ll done with your Christmas shopping in good ol’ real life yet:? I went out today and daaaang the stores are chaos! But I fought my way through and got some gifts. Now I’m retreating to Second Life for some relaxation. And by that I mean… shopping!

I went and hit up the Designer’s Outlet – Discount Sale Event today and foud this super cute Christmassy but not too Christmassy outfit. This is the “Fair Isle sweater” and “Patch Bellbottoms”  from Petite Mort, one of my favorite designs. There are a ton of tops and jeans to choose from and each one is only 50L. Not bad at all! Of course, if you love it the fat pack is also on sale at the event.  I can see myself wearing these jeans a LOT in the coming months.

The Designer’s Outlet – Discount Sale Event runs until Dec. 23 so don’t delay too long. You don’t want to miss out on the sales and all the Next Ups and big ol’ deals!

YAY

I love me some Shop & Hop.  I always seem to get a bit dizzy in the giant rectangular sim layout, but I got it done!  16 regions to explore and 320 designers participating is a huge huge feat.  A few hours plus another few of unboxing and I’m happy now to show off some of my fave finds.   These gifts are all free, and there’s no need to join a group to get them!  Here’s what I’ve got on:

  • FREE hair by Exile in a full fatpack of colours plus different hat colours
  • FREE dress by Gabrielle Hamelin sized for Freya, Isis, Reborn, Legacy, Maitreya, Physique & Hourglass
  • FREE drink by Andika with both held and decor versions
  • FREE shoes by Baiastice sized for Cinnamon Chai, Reborn, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink

The FabFree Annual Free(ish) Hair Roundup – Part 1

Yay!  FabFree!  IT’S TIME!

Time for what, you ask?  Well… it’s time for our annual Free(ish) hair round up!  If you’ve not seen one of our hair posts before, strap in and get yourself a beverage because we pulled out all the stops this year to bring you NOT JUST ONE, but two posts of free, group gift, and dollarbie hair that you can get right now.  This year we’ve got over 200 hairstyles in this post alone, with just as many (if not more) coming tomorrow.  Yeah.  I know.  It’s a doozy.

Please be sure to thank the FabFree bloggers for their hard work in collecting, photographing, and documenting each hairstyle so that you have a comprehensive guide to free and affordable hair around the grid.  They deserve your kudos because they jumped on this project with wild abandon.

Shameless plug here, but as you well know – FabFree bloggers are not paid for their services.  However, if ever you feel like donating and showing your appreciation, make your way over to the FabFree Info Hub and drop a few coins in the piggy banks.  We do appreciate it.  We also super love comments on our posts!

I just don’t want to go home right now

I don't want to go home right nowIt’s weird to think that FabFree and I are pretty much the same age; the blog is only like 2 months older. No wonder it feels like I’ve been reading FabFree my whole SLife. I probably have been! FabFree’s 15th birthday party rolls on, and I got all of the clothing (including shoes!) that I’m wearing today from the FabFree @ Fifteen event ! If you haven’t had a look at the tremendous list of free and discounted items here, than you are truly missing out. Luckily you’ve still got a couple of weeks to take it all in. I just loved how great these went together for a cute and casual look to wear around the grid. Here’s what I’m wearing, from top to bottom:

Top

The top is by Glitter and it’s free. Do I need to say more? Certainly not but that typically never stops me. It comes in a HUD of “strong colors” so like your dark greens and blues and reds. Such a casual, fun, and easy to wear style. Perfect over a perfect pair of jeans. Don’t worry, we’ll get to those next! Sizes:

  • Fitmesh
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Middle

Yes, the jeans. These are one of those great pairs to throw on when you need something to wear and you know they’ll look fabulous. They are 499L from rainnn for FabFree @ Fifteen and really just so versatile and well made. Included is a HUD full of denim colors and sizes for Legacy and Maitreya.

Bottom

Yes friends, we’ve reached the feet. My flip flops are by rainnn as well. It’s the stipes pack and are rainnn‘s 15L item for the event. I don’t think there is any way I could have possibly rounded out this outfit better than with some cute flip flips. The stripes pack includes 11 stripy patterns in a HUD and these sizes:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • Slink
  • and an unrigged version

And that’s a wrap! I do love an outfit that pretty much puts itself together.

Dilettante or Not?

Shanti Cheeky Wow. Exile FLF 7-8-2022_001

It’s another Fabulous Friday readers! I get to play in SL all day because in addition to the heat wave the monsoon season has arrived. Not really monsoons but lots of thunderstorms; it just feels like a monsoon. In addition to my shopping errands this morning I did a bit of exploring and found a serene harbor in a sim named Midnight Oasis. I haven’t explored the entire place yet but what I did visit is stunning. Everywhere you turn there are magnificent Mediterranean vistas and many places that photographers will love. I highly recommend a visit.

Free Spirited

Cheeky Wow! started a new round on July 7th. Many of the booths have at least one item for $69L and several have free gifts. One of my long time favorite designers, Shanti Bohemian, has a booth there. My carefree top and skirt, the Poppy Bohemian outfit, is Shanti’s $69L offer at the event. Its the kind of outfit you want to wear when you feel like twirling around because you’ll look so darling. The lovely texture on it is very detailed.

Sizes

  • Bellezza Isis, Freya, Venus
  • Ebody
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic Curvy, Fine

Baby Blue Ain’t Your Color

Says who? I mean I adore the Keith Urban song but who says I can’t have blue hair if I want it. Exile‘s Fifty Linden Friday offer solved that dilemma. Kate is a casual style with a dark to light gradient in 5 colors. The blue really compliments my outfit.

Another Score on Shoes!

Pure Poison offers this striking pair of shoes today for Fifty Linden Friday. Exquisite barely describes the Luisa Sandals! Decorated with two rows of delicate flowers the included hud is massive allowing you to change many different parts to match whatever you’re wearing.

A quiet place

A quiet place

Good evening, Fabulous Readers. As I’m sure you already know, Second Life’s 19th Birthday is going strong and there are many many free gifts to be had at the Shop & Hop. Sadly, there aren’t many offerings this round for the men but I did ferret out a good gift from Vagrant. You may be forgiven for thing Vagrant has nothing for men as the booth shows only women’s clothing. But, at the main store there are some very nice things for the guys. While the selection is small, the quality is high and I thoroughly enjoy spending my free Shop & Hop 500L Gift Card there. 

Simply collect your free store credit at the Shop and Hop booth then follow the LM to the main store. Right now, everything in the store is 50% off but it still allows you to use the store credit! ( That may change quickly as the 50% sale was scheduled to end yesterday but was still going at the time of this post) I was able to pick up several things including the pants, top and hat I’m sporting in the photograph. The gift does not mention an expiration date but I wouldn’t tempt fate. 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature Gianni
