Journal Musing

Journal Musing

I was having a conversation with Arielle yesterday about how much we both love stationery.  I am the sticker queen (I have far too many to ever use, but they just make me happy) and she is the pen queen.  We’ve both come to the realization, however, that we’re both obsessed with journals.  You know, the really pretty ones that you have no idea what you’re going to write in, but you still buy it because *sssooooo prettyyyyy*.  Yeah, well now I’ve got journals in SL that I surely won’t write in, but I have to have anyway!

Non-Sequitur

My little journal rant has nothing to do with my outfit (I mean, other than the journals I’m holding, obviously), but my sweet top and skirt were putting me in the mood for being artistic and such.  They’re the latest group gift from Maai, and they’re completely free.  Aren’t the little heart buttons adorable?  I can’t even.  Join the Maai group for free, then click on the vendor at the landing point and they’re all yours!

Rafaela

Rafaela

Hey Fab Fam! Welcome to Friday! 

I overheard some folks talking about how hard it was to find “good stuff” on the Grid that didn’t coast a fortune. And I thought to myself, “What???’ Of course we all know about the Fab… but there are a ton of other helpful sources for low cost or free things. I personally love the Teleport HUB group and today, I found a new to me group – Designer News. The group is free to join and has tons of notes and notices about new promos and gifts and sales. Then I saw that one of my fav designers had a gift up for the group and I was sold!

This is the ‘Rafaela’ dress from Pink Mango and you can pick it up for free as a member of the Designer News Group. Don’t you love the subtle shimmer? Pink Mango has a bunch of group gifts up in addition to their own group so you can get some awesome sources when you go to pick this cute sweater dress up!  Get out there and SHOP, my dears!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus

Healing with Crystals

Healing with Crystals

Hey Fab Free! I hope you are all having a great week and have been able to relax. It’s been a bit crazy on my end, but at least I’ve gotten a bit of downtime in-world. I am currently using these crystals for much-needed healing. Also, some shopping therapy always does the trick!

I ❤ American Bazaar

American Bazaar is totally one of my new favourite designers. I love their stuff! This dress is free on the Love for All Hunt. This is the cocktail dress in red. One of the things I love most about this designer is how many bodies they support. It can be hard to find clothes for some these curvy girl brands! See below for details on sizing. 🙂

I should mention, American Bazaar also has a sale on right now. I thought it was supposed to end on the 15th of February, but most of the pink and red vendors in the store are still set to 14 L a piece. If you join the free group and keep the tag on, it’s only 12 L per piece.  If you don’t want to go hunting for the cocktail dress, you can buy it this way for just 12 Linden. I pretty much bought out the whole place on the weekend, so go girls and load up on those sales items! This sale was supposed to end a couple days though, so go quick before it’s gone forever.  Make sure to grab all the free gifts while you’re there too! Yay!

Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Ebody Curvy

Crystal Gacha

I’m a big fan of crystals. I love all the different types, what they represent, etc. The Magic Gem gacha at EscalateD is really cool for all the crystal lovers out there. You can hold them, have them hover over your shoulder, or place them in your house as decor. 

The Gacha can be played to win 9 different colours:

  • Sapphire
  • Topaz
  • Peridot
  • Citrine
  • Hyacinth
  • Saltcrystal
  • Garnet
  • Amethyst
  • Moonlight

Zoom over to EscalateD to play this gacha for 50L a pull!

Attention Shoppers, it’s time to rush!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Alright Fab Free, the heat is on. I know about all you shoppers out there who wait until the LAST DAY to hit the events, scrambling around trying to grab all the goodies before they’re taken away. I know cause I AM that person! But hey- I’m not judging! Maybe you couldn’t get into the sim! Well today I’m going to tell you about two must haves from the Shop & Hop before it closes today, so make sure you scoop these up before the event ends tonight.

Beloved Blueberry

Blueberry is spoiling us with a free 400 L Credit for all at their Shop & Hop location. No group join is required, so just touch the board to get in on this great offer. If you head over to the Blueberry main store you can grab the ombres pack of the Romance dress which will be completely covered by the credit gift so it is completely free. The credit expires in 2 weeks from when you add it to your balance, so this would be a perfect item to claim with your credit. I will link Blueberry’s Shop & Hop location, including the cam sims, and the main store below because I know that it can be VERY hard to get into the Blueberry sims during major events. I wish you the best of luck getting in on the last day today.

Fashion Forward

Snapshot_022

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”

Gianni Versace

Hello again my fab free fam!

How do you decide what to wear?  Do you try to fit in and wear things that other people wear, or approve of, or do you do your own thing?  Do you dress according to mood?  Or maybe you have a system that helps you decide?

Me, I’ve always done my own thing, both in sl and rl.  It hasn’t always been the easiest to deal with (rl!) but I don’t have the ability to be anything but myself.  I’m very VERY bad at faking it.  What you see is what you get folks!  Now, in sl, we have a LOT more fashion choices than in rl.  I mean gosh I could NEVER fit all my sl clothing into my rl closet!  Nor would it all look as stunning on me as it does on my lovely sl avatar.  However, my choices are the same.  As I’ve said before, I feel like a sort of bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde), while I was a tomboy most of my life and still mostly am, there is that part of me that lonnnnggggssssss to be girly but isn’t quite sure how to do it!  lol  I lost my mom at an early age and had no other female role models, so I became sort of a guys girl.   Many of my closest rl friends are guys and I find them easier to hang with than other girls, for the most part.  I’m not sure I ever properly learned how to “girl”.  lol  But I digress!  (I go off on side tangents, sorry  lol) My choices in both worlds reflect the bohemian, artsy, PINK-ishness, quirky soul that I am.  I don’t care if its in style, if I love it, I wear it.  Also unicorns.  anything & everything with unicorns.

Respond in comments and tell me what fashion inspires in you and what you love to choose!

As you can see, today I have chosen an adorable complete outfit from Bad Rabbit.  It was a free gift with no group required.  This outfit comes with everything you see here, dress and matching boots.  It has a HUD that gives 5 texture choices for the dress and five matching choices for the boots.  There was a pink choice for it but I chose blue cause I don’t want y’all to get crazy at me!  lol!

The dress comes in:

  • Tonic – Minimizer, Fine, Curvy
  • Star
  • Hourglass
  • Signature
  • Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • Kupra – Low, Original, Bimbo
  • Ebpdy – Classic, Curvy
  • Belleza – Isis, Freya
  • Altamura

The boots come in:

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Freya

Since this got to be a rather long-ish post (!!), I shall wrap up here and see you next time lovelies, when I show you a great look for a casual night out!

Cheers to us saving the world, one outfit at a time,

❤ Arielle
