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!

Blue Monday

Blue Monday

Today is supposedly Blue Monday, which is said to be the saddest day of the year (though I always think of that amazing song by New Order).  In order to combat any possible sad vibes, I’m here in as many bright colours as I can lay my hands on!

First!

My hothouse bloom-covered dress is perfect for a day where you need a pick me up.  Even better, it’s completely free, and around these parts we know that that’s a definite pick me up!  You can grab it over at Saussi when you activate your FabFree inworld group tag.  Our group is always free to join, and you’ll find about a bajillion free gifts in our listing, which is updated all the time.  Plus, if you ask my humble opinion… our group members are the best on the grid.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn
  • Reborn Juicy

Second!

There’s nothing that will pick me up more than a lovely free hairstyle.  I’m showing off one of the latest free group gifts from Nova, who have a whole board (head left as you enter the store) filled with free hairstyles in bright colours to cheer anyone up.  Join the Nova group for free, click on the photos on the board, and this lovely hairstyle (called Voile) is all yours.  Yum!

You’ve got this!

Celebrating No More Drama in Our Lives

Celebrating No More Drama in Our Lives

There’s one thing I avoid at all costs, and I can tell you categorically that it isn’t cupcakes.  You guessed it, no drama for this llama.  Life’s far too short to waste it on bickering, weirdness and pettiness.  Let’s just live and let live, shall we?

To the Showcase

Designer Showcase is in full swing, and Cre let you know about a gift she picked up there.  I made my way over as well and found this fun dress by Enchantress that really called to me.  Maybe the drama will be scared off by the capital letters?  One can only hope.  I paired it with this fun necklace and earrings set by Le’La, which I’m sure I totally owned in RL back in the… well, a while ago.  There are lots of gifts to grab at Designer Showcase, just join the group for free, and click on the gift boxes!  Boom!

Dress Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Perky
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Minimizer

Oh Right, The Hair

I saved the best for last, of course… Nova has THREE new group gifts out for you!  I love it when this happens.  Just join the free group, then look at the cork board to the left as you enter, it’s got several awesome hairstyles for you.  I settled on Jae since I love a long, flowing look.  The top three are the new gifts, and you’ll find a few older ones just below.  How nice is that?  Go grab them all!

Drama need not apply.

Baddest Witch on the Block

Baddest Witch on the Block

Ah yes, the dark and creepy denizens of SL have taken to the streets.  Especially this one.  I’m ready to be the most spooky of the houses on the block, be in full costume, and hand out full size chocolate bars while I’m at it.  You know, the best!

Still Shopping and Hopping

I know we’re all working our way through the goodies from Shop & Hop, and we love showing you what’s available at this massive event here on FabFree.  Sometimes things get overwhelming, and it’s nice just to nip in and pick up a few things, then zoom back out before you get smushed to death by the crowds.  Here’s what I found for ya:

  • FREE gown by Sofia sized for Freya, Hourglass, Kupra, Maitreya, Legacy & Reborn (includes the body jewelry and knickers)
  • FREE glasses by Fetch

There is no group join required to get these gifts, just click!  Shop & Hop is running until November 1st and you can find all the information and slurls right HERE.

Come get yer candy, I swear I don’t bite.

Much.

The Best Part

The Very Best

The best part about October for me is the fact that suddenly gift season kicks into high gear.  From now until the end of December, you’ll rarely hear a FabFree blogger wondering where their next post will come from.   There’s always an abundance of awesome gifts, hunts, games, events and prizes to be had, and that…is why October is awesome.

Back in the Day

The Back in the Day hunt has recently kicked off, and I found this cool dress at Corvus!  For just 2L and a bit of hunting, it can be yours too.  Just look for the little gift box hidden somewhere in the store.  I love the gathered side and the creepy textures are exactly what Corvus does so well.  There’s also another gift hidden at this location too.  The Back in the Day Hunt is running until October 31st, and you can check out all the prizes HERE.  Oh…and also check out the back of the dress in the ad below – it’s just as awesome as the front.

Sizes

  • Alice
  • Altamura
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

More!

The other day I mentioned that Nova had four new group gifts out, and today I’m showing off another one, the long and wavy Tatum.  I really like the way this one falls and will totally go into my regular rotation for hair.  So good.  The Nova group is free to join, and you’ll find lots of group gifts on the board not far from the entrance to the store.

Yay, October!

Dark Desires

Dark Desires

Spooky time!  I love putting together these dark diva looks.  There’s something so appealing to adding a bit of a dangerous edge to your looks, even if you’re all sweetness and light (like me!  I swear!).

Latex is Your Friend

I love a good latex dress.  I know it’s something I could never pull off in RL – could you imagine keeping that stuff shiny?  I’d have to quit my job just to keep up with it.  Anyway, in SL latex never goes dull, and always looks sexy.  I picked up the latest group gift at Maai – this very appealing dress that you just have to see in the light to believe.  The group is free to join, making this awesome dress completely free.

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite
  • Reborn

And Free Hair!

I heard through the grapevine (aka the FabFree chat) that there were 4 new group gifts of hair at Nova, and I nipped over to peek, and it’s completely true!  There are 8 total, and the group is free to join.  The four new ones include the one I’ve got on at the moment, called Muse.  For full disclosure, I had to add an extra strand of hair to one side since apparently my head is enormous.  What can I say, I’ve got a big brain! The newer mesh heads are a bit smaller than my old tried, tested and true.  But you must admit, it is very lovely.  I love the little braids!

Have a lovely (and dark!) evening, Fabbies!

All We Need is Peace

All We Need is Peace

Happy Friday everyone!  I’m glad it’s the weekend, but I’m sparing a thought for our friends in Ukraine.  One of my favourite designers, Osmia, has been away during this tumultuous time, but managed to get back inworld this week to put out a new release… and wouldn’t you know it, she also put out a gift.  The generosity of SL designers often blows me away, but this one kinda really hit me… taking the time to put out a gift while you’re in a precarious situation?  I mean… blimey.

Get to Osmia!

This lovely tee, with a sentiment I’m sure we can all get behind, is a free gift for everyone at Osmia.  You’ll find it right beside their latest release, and you just have to click on the vendor and buy for 0L.  I might suggest you also look into buying one of their really lovely creations while you’re there to support Hanna.  Thank you so much Osmia, we really do wish you the best!

Sizes

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite
  • Reborn

Hoping for peace,

Cozy Time

Coming Soon

Get Cozy

We saw some gifts at Cozyfest from Aline here. I have a few more from this great event to share today as I finally managed to get into the event! I am only showing free gifts available at Cozyfest.

  • My blush and freckles are gifts from theSkinnery. These gifts come in BOM layers made for Lelutka EvoX heads. This set gives you that perfect flushed frosty look you get in the cold.
  • The scarf is the gift from le fil casse. You can resize it and change it to many different colours with the colour hud included.
  • The headband is the gift from mintae! It’s a bit vintage and super cute.

Other Cozy Finds

I threw on a couple other gifts to complete this look.

  • The cute shoes are a group gift at StephaneL. These are the Giulia boots and they were released this winter. I love them! They fit Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet. The StephaneL group costs 15L to join.
  • The cute hairstyle is a free group gift at Nova Hair Studio. Pick it up along with all their other gifts for free!

See you soon, FabFree!

These Are a Few of My Favourite Things

Coming Soon

Hey, Fab Free! I told you I would be back soon with more great items on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt today. There are so many great gifts this round, and they all match my style! I also have another big announcement about my favourite type of freebies, so keep reading. All in all, I’m showing off a few of my favourite things today including glamourous makeup and some amazing free hairstyles!

Hunt Prizes from Poema

I am currently wearing two hunt prizes on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt from Poema today. I’m featuring the makeup prizes, and they are simply gorgeous. Each hunt prize at Poema costs 5 Linden each. 

  • The first item I am showcasing is a gorgeous lipstick applier. This is the “Sexy Mami” Lipstick and it comes in a palette of brown tones. This applier is made for Lelutka Evo X heads only. 
  • Second is the “Arabella Blush”- this is radiant blush also made for Lelutka Evo X heads, but it comes in BOM layers. It just lights up your face and makes you glow. 

Bundles of free hair!

My other big annoucement in today’s post is about my favourite thing of all- hair! The lovely hair store formerly known as Little Bones has moved shop and renamed their store Nova. Here is your taxi to the new store. You can now join their group for free and get all past group gifts for free. Most of the 18 free hairstyles come in Mermaid packs that include bright, colourful combinations, highlights and tones. Each pack also includes a tint hud that allows you to tint your hair, which I was able to use to make the hairstyle have that rich dark red colour I love. I’m not sure how long this promotion will be available. I think the group is temporarily free to join, so go get the group gifts while you still can!

Until next time, FabFree!

Let the Sunshine in

Shanti 75L Maxi Dress

Hey gang!

Big announcement here!  Some of you may already know some of this but… I have a shop called Shanti.  What you might not know is that I have been so inspired by the whole FabFree experience that I recently changed my shop so that everything is 75L or less!  Yep, even brand spanking new stuff!  Older stuff, BOM/classic things, those are 49L and less.  Woot!  This is not something that will end, this is a permanent thing.  And yes there are lots of freebies to be had!

Today I’m wearing a Shanti Maxi Dress, this is only 75L, is gorgeous for the spring and summer and fits:

  • Classic (Fitmesh)
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink

Shanti is very bohemian inspired (cause I loveeee the bohemian stuff, being the boho princess that I am!), which is hard to find sometimes in world. (I wish there was more!!)

I’m also wearing hair from Lamb, this is one of their awesome free group gifts, and yes, that group is free to join!

Enjoy!  I’ve got some new market finds for you next time gang!  Yay!  (and yes this is the one and only time I will be tooting my own horn.  Toot toot!!)
