Springtime Swoon

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

Now, I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely *love* all the pastel colors that show up in the Spring!  They just make me swoon!  It’s the Springtime Swoon!  That’s like being twitterpated but you do it over the colors, the clothes, the hair, the makeup, the flowers, the decor, the freaking everything!!!!  I mean, I got an amazon gift card yesterday and I went all crazy about some pastel colored pens for my Bujo!  Just so refreshing and bright and cheery!  Can you tell I am not much of a winter time gal?  😉

But!  I do digress!  (Picture it, Sicily, 1920….)  I have some amazing goodies for you today!  This adorable outfit I am wearing comes to you from our Fab Free Designer Phoebe ~Piercings & more~.  It is a MIIX Weekend Sale item, the top and bottom are 55L each and they come with a HUD that has pinstripes (so sassy and classy!) in every color your heart desires 20 choices!)!  That’s this weekend, as in *right now* so run and do grab!  They fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Standar (Classic Avatar M size)
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus
  • Voluptuous

The shoes I found on marketplace for a mere 50L and they are gorgeous!  They are from ROC, and they come with a HUD that has 25 color choices so these match *everything*!  They fit:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

Now for those of you who are Mom’s, any kind of Mom (humans or furbabies!!) I wish you a wonderful Mother’s Day!  Those of you who are missing your Mom’s (like me) for whatever reason, I send you big hugs!!!

❤ Arielle

Chat Time

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Hey FabFree! My holiday season is officially here for me, and I celebrated by setting up this great patio spread by Noveny in my backyard. I invited my good friend Orion to come hang with me and watch the sunset and chat the night away together! Orion is a dedicated freebie finder and you will often find her chatting away and helping others in the FabFree chat in world.

Free Decor from Noveny!

One of our FabFree designers, Noveny, is incredibly generous. You can get this whole outdoor furniture set by Noveny for free at Ajuda SL Brasil. Orion tipped me off about this awesome find! I was really amazed by how many items are included in this free set, and the items are so gorgeously textured and detailed. This is the perfect gift to bring in summer this year! The items shown in my photo that are included in the freebie are:

  • The grey outdoor sectional sofa. The blue pillows are included, and it includes and it includes PG singles and couples animations.
  • The grey chair. The blue pillows are included, and it includes PG singles and couples animations.
  • The large potted plant which is beside me. See below for another detailed photo of the potted plant. There are lovely little stone pebbles inside the basket-weaved pot.
  • The small round coffee table.
  • The round-shaped end table.

I added a some more decor around the patio, and the three plants on the coffee table in the centre are also a free gift . These are “Vintage Pot Can” plants, which are a free group gift at Noveny’s mainstore. Just join their free group and pay the vendor 1 L (it will be refunded automatically).

A Holo Space

Lost in Space

Now for something completely different…

Like Aline, I am loving this holographic trend that is happening.  I love sci fi and it always makes me feel a bit like I am in the future someplace.  A future with no covid, no disease or sickness, no wars, cultural acceptance… You get the picture.  I’m an idealist.  This is how my brain works.

Get the Look!

Now how to match that sci fi look with makeup?  It’s easy peasy when you visit the sl marketplace!  The lipstick is UA Lips Gift and it is free on marketplace!  It has all appliers so this works for everyone!  On my eyes I used MOCK makeup, bluey rainbow and that was only 40L on market!

My outer space backdrop in from marketplace (and it comes with a cool pose which I didn’t use here.) by Small.fry and that is free as well.

Everything you need to be a sexy space mamma (did I just say that??) is in the credits below.  Now go out and be fabulously spacey!

Little April Shower

Little April Shower

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around
Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

The Hills Are Alive…

The Hills Are Alive...
The hills are alive with the sound of….freeeeebiiiiiies!  I’m crying it from the mountain tops today, though I feel like I’m often doing that.  I think my catchphrase needs to just be “Oh you like this outfit? It was free!”.  I have a few friends who always giggle after I say it, because they are always expecting my line.  Anyway, back to crying from the tops of mountains!

Powerful

Mangula has a new subscriber gift!  As per usual, it’s super awesome and entirely free.  This one comes with the knotted shirt, pink bustier, skirt and even a pair of knickers that match.  They can all be worn separately, making this one pretty darn versatile.  To get it, just click on the subscribo unit above the front desk, and then head over to the gift section and you’ll find the vendor there.  There are plenty more awesome free gifts while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Perky
  • Petite

Wait, WHAT?

Oh guys…hold on tight because Pure Poison is having a bit of a clear out with lots and lots of their older creations marked down to just 1L on Marketplace.  I KNOW.  You’ll be rolling in completely gorgeous shoes forever if you click through to all the 1L awesomeness.  You’ll also find some priced at 5L and 10L too.  The tea is that you can grab these goodies for this weekend, and the 1L stuff will be around until April 30th when they will then be deleted FOREVER!  Gasp!  My suggestion to get to the shoe hoard is to head to the Pure Poison MP store, choose “lowest to highest price” and click off “demos” on the bottom left so they don’t show you 50,000 demos.  You’ll find them easily then!  I bought the Katarina sandals for just 1L, and I couldn’t be happier!

  • Maitreya

Fabfree Post: Behind the camera
Taking a look

This amazing photo captures who I am with such little effort. As someone who loves taking photo’s in real life as well as in second life, I often take photos that set a story behind the photos, however, this one is just clear as day just a plain classic photo of my avatar. Realism is something that sings to my heart and I hope you enjoy this photo.
