Different Drummer

Snapshot_021

As you might have noticed by now, I am an eclectic, off-center, quirky kinda girl.  The outfits I choose might not be the norm, or rather, the combinations I put together for outfits might not be the norm, but someone has to blog for the outcasts.  Those of us who walk to the beat of our own drummer and don’t fit in with the mainstream.

In Second Life as in real life, I’m kind of a loner.  I’m borderline hermit sometimes!  Only those who take the time to get to know me, get to see the quirky sparkle I keep hidden from most of the world.  I’m quite used to people looking at me like I am something that just dropped in from outer space that they aren’t quite sure if they approve of.  (ok that might be over use of the word “quite”).

I’ve never joined the throngs of people who hang out at clubs, or have big families in sl, I’ve mostly wandered by myself and being the way I am, its been good most of the time.  I’ve had those lonely moments we all get from time to time.

And until I became a part of fab free I’ve never had a group of friends in sl, oh sure I had a couple of short lived friends when I first started (2008!) but that was just for a couple of weeks because I worked as a dancer as a lot of us did when we started (and I was *terrible* at it and hated it!  I’m horrible at being phony) and that’s where I had the friends.

Now with Fab Free, I have a wonderful circle of ladies that I am so proud and honored to call my friends and sisters.  The awesome thing is, we are all sort of quirky and off center in our own ways and so we are all very accepting of one another.  It’s a very happy place for my soul.

I know I went off on a bit of a tangent there, but this outfit was an odd mix and it just got me thinking.  It’s an odd mix but I love the way it fits together.  I’m also a girl who loves hats in both worlds, and I loved these boots.  😉  But I know, shush now Arielle, quit rambling and tell us about the freebies n such!  ok ok!

Now back to our regularly scheduled program!

This cute dress I am sporting is a 1L find for the Around the Grid 9 Hunt created by Pearl’s Treasure Chest or PTC.  This hunt goes from July 13 to September 30 (I’m not ready for fall yet!!).  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

My boots are from MOoH! They are a free Third Life Group Gift and that group is 10L to join.  They fit:

I hope your Monday morning is going as well as can be expected gang!  I’ll be back with more fun freebies very soon!

Lazy Saturday Morning

Virtual Diva HH Noa Bikini Cherry

Happy Weekend! Is there a better way to spend a Saturday then lying on a lovely beach soaking up some rays while your mind drifts to the rhythm of the waves. Thanks to Angy Kristan, owner and designer of Virtual Diva Couture I have a fabulous bikini to wear. This is the Noa Bikini and it’s one of three current group gits available at the store!

The Group is FREE to join!

Yes, that’s right! There is no join fee for the Virtual Diva group at this time. It will likely stay this way for another month or two (according to Angy). I couldn’t find a group joiner in the store but here is the group key to paste in local chat if you’d like to join: secondlife:///app/group/d37c2b95-4bc7-c523-cd0d-e6f3cfeaabc0/about

The clothing you’ll find at the store are very fashion forward and different from what you can find at other stores. There are always sales if you need to watch your budget. In addition there are the monthly group gifts. 6 group lucky boards (changed regularly), as well as gifts for a number of different SL groups.

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

TTFN, I’m going chill out on the beach!

Soak in the Sun

FF Gift_005 (2)

Ah, the beach and the sun. It’s been so long since I’ve been afforded the luxury of a lovely summer retreat! I may not be wearing the best attire for the beach right now, but I don’t plan on swimming today. I just want to soak in the sun and wrap up inside this beach bed and curl up with a good book. Time for a summer vacation!

Adela @ Evolve

Today I am wearing the Adela dress by Evolve. This is a new-to-me store, and their clothes are beautifully made! Today I am wearing the Adela mesh dress in blue. This was my favourite colours of the dress which is why  I featured it as the cover photo. This is an MLM Frees & Offers group gift. Like other freebie groups in SL such as TeleportHub, SLFO, FabFree, etc., the MLM Frees & Offers group is a real keeper! I’ve been in this group for probably 2 years and collected tonnes of freebies around the grid. The MLM Frees & Offers group costs only 5 linden to join. 

Here is the join link for the MLM Frees & Offers group (just copy the code into private or nearby chat in SL):

You can also get the Adela dress in a Mango Sorbet colour for free with the Sexy, Fashionable, Gorgeous Me (SFGM) group tag active. The SFGM group is another AMAZING freebie group and it’s run by the same folks that organize Free Dove. The SFGM group is currently free to join, but I’m not sure for how long (the group normally costs a small fee to join. 

Here is the join link for the SFGM group (just copy the code into private or nearby chat in SL):

Surf Wax America

Surf Wax America

Any time I see a surf board, I get the song Surf Wax America by Weezer stuck in my head.  I have no idea what that says about me or my relationship to surfing, but it’s pretty much the only point of reference I have, seeing as I’ve never even touched a real surf board.  So, I’ll just keep doing what I do best – posing in front of them with aplomb!

Sassy Pants (erm…Dress)

Time for this month’s uber cute group gift from Sass – this miniscule tube dress in rainbow gradient hues has me feeling some kinda cheerful.  It’s all the rainbow goodness you want, without being necessarily full on rainbow.  You can get yours by joining the Sass group for 10L, then paying the vendor 1L which will be returned to you.  There are plenty of other pretty gifts to grab while you’re at it.

  • Freya
  • Legacy

Hair, Did you Say?

Here’s a fun one for you – FAGA hair are offering their first group gift ever – the Jina hair, which is a wild concoction of cascading pouf things in a whole host of natural and crazy colours.  Kind of like a pigtail but with a bit more texture!  Here’s the deal:  the group is free to join for the next 72 hours, then the price goes up.  So don’t wait, join the group now and get in on this fantastic hair!  To join the group, just copy and paste the following key in local chat:  secondlife:///app/group/4b26d2c0-71af-6639-924d-d30e1c84ba21/about

With aplomb, I tell you!

Heatwave

FabFree Post: Heatwave

Spring Heatwave

This weather here is too hot for my own liking, the heatwave I had this past week made me go out and get a ton of beach things. Just when I had the time to get to the ocean the weather turns cold and rainy. Just my luck! Though I was able to snag a picture while I was melting from this Spring Heatwave.

While out and about shopping I was able to snag a cute witchy top from Pink Cream Pie! The lucky letter boards gave this spooktastic Lucky Tank that features a cute little witch hat with Hocus Pocus printed on it. Super cute for this smelting weather.  The Pink Cream Pie group is currently 314L to join.

The Book of Spells

Book of Spells

I have always had an affinity for all things fantasy and magical! I love to crawl up with a good fantasy book any day- let me escape to a wonderous, magical place! Today I will be sharing an amazing free magic spell book, and a few other magical gifts.

The “Trouble Maker” Spell Book

This glorious spell book I am levitating is the latest free group gift at Birth. The book comes in black, silver or gold binding, and the animations are wonderful. The gift also includes light particles for the book and your hand. Watch the video by Birth below to see the full animated effects. This is an amazing gift, so thank you Birth. ❤ The Birth group is free to join so go snatch this gift before they change it to a new one!

Juna

The hair I am wearing is the latest group gift at EscalateD, which you can pick up at their main store. Juna is a beautiful, messy style, and I paired the hair with colour huds that EscalateD has for sale at Fantasy Faire. The group gift comes with its own naturals and unnaturals colour huds as well, but it’s great that you can collect and used other colour huds on any hair made by this designer.  Juna is a new favourite style of mine! The EscalateD VIP group costs 99L to join and past group gifts, including more universal hair colouring huds, are still available to collect.

❤ New Group Gift

BOM Goodies

The last couple items I have to share with you are Bakes on Mesh items. First off, this gorgeous black tattoo of the roses and chains shown on my chest is a group gift for members of the Carol G Tattoo  group. Every since converting to BOM, I like playing around with tattoos and this tattoo at Carol G is gorgeous. The Carol G VIP group costs 200L to join.

The second item I wish to share is a stunning eyeliner set by Trend. These are a group gift, and Trend is temporarily FREE to join! Make sure to collect all the gorgeous group gifts while you stop by. ❤

Appliers Included

  • Genus
  • BOM

See you soon, FabFree!

Frost Warning

Frost warning

Hey FabFree! This one is going to be quick because I’m nearly frozen here in Real Life. My look today is definitely tied to the sudden drop and forecasted SNOW here in my part of the world. Winter is making one last come back!  So I donned a beautiful “Frost Fairy” get up to compliment it.

My frosty new skin is from Jeanette’s Joint and it’s the 25L  Tuesday special. It comes with BoM layers, a Maitreya appliers and and Omega applier. I found them to work perfectly. There is also a men’s skin available for the Special sale. JJ does beautiful work and the cold coming off this skin is palpable. The skin comes in a modest and an explicit version. Plus, there’s a packet for ‘frost breath’ in the box too!

Appliers Included

  • Bakes on Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Omega

My lovely mare, Fey got a make over too curtesy of Lunistice. The “Frozen” coat and hooves she is wearing are the  Group Gift this month. The group is just 10L to join and each month there’s another beautiful coat or accessories to pick up.  The details of the coat are just stunning! And perfect for this last icy breath  of winter.

  • Coat fits all Teegle Avatars and Pets ( except the Skeleton )
