Warm and Cozy

Warm and Cozy

Hello, Fabulous Readers.  I don’t know about your part of the world, but soon, the first snowflakes will fall in my neck of the woods.  I have just the thing to keep you snug when the days turn chilly.  Even if you aren’t expecting flurries quite yet, this outfit is still perfect for the season with its fringed scarf.

Bring on the Ghosts and Goblins

In my last post, I told you about one of my hunt discoveries, and today, I am back with another.  I decided to explore the Hunt on Haunted Hill 5 this weekend.  Over at the MadCatCreations Boutique, I located the hunt object (a cute little ghost) paid the one Linden dollar prize fee, then scurried on home before nightfall.  Believe me, I don’t want to be out on any haunted trail after dark!  With a realistic, heather-gray cabled knit texture, long sleeves, and generous hem, this sweater is sure to keep you warm in brisk weather.  I like the vee-shaped, plunging neckline and appreciate the dark scarf decorated with spooky skulls.  If the autumn winds get too strong, I can always wrap up. 🙂  You can wear the sweater and scarf together as I am showing, or separately for added versatility.  Each of the 23 stops along the Hunt on Haunted Hill trail cost one Linden dollar and all coordinate with the Halloween theme.  The event runs until October 31st, so there’s plenty of time to get your hunt on.

Until my next post, happy haunting hunting!

Night at the Museum

Coming Soon

Happy Monday, FabFree! It’s time for a night at the museum and I am stoked. I even brought my little puppy with me. I’ll just have to hide him in my purse to keep him away from the artifacts. I’m sure the pupster and I can sneak in some selfies when the security guards aren’t looking!

Your Shopping List

While I’m at the museum, you can go freebie shopping. Here is a shopping list of the fab finds I have on today:

  • This cute hairstyle is a lucky chair prize for group members of MINA Hair. The MINA Hair VIP group costs 200L to join. This style comes with a blonds colour HUD. 
  • My cute black and red plaid boots are a free gift at the Free Dove at the StephaneL designer booth. They have three amazing pairs of free shoes at the booth. Like all Free Dove gifts, you will need to join the free Free Dove group to get the boots!
  • The beautiful choker I have on is a free gift from Sorumin on the Marketplace. It’s simply outstanding! I do not usually like chokers, but I love how detailed the rose is. There is colour HUD that comes with the choker that allows for a high level of customization (changing colours of the choker, the rose and the metals). 
  • My wicked shorts are by Nerdy Girl, and they only cost 1 Linden on the Marketplace. Nerdy Girl has a load of dollarbies on their Marketplace store so scoop them up. 

Go With the Trend 

The last order of business today is all about Trend. I love this store, and I am more lucky letter prizes from this designer. I am currently wearing the sweet temptation lipstick and the hot eyeshadow. Trend’s group currently costs 250 lindens to join. 

Enjoy, FabFree!

The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

autumn_017

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

Lovely in Lavender

Where Flowers Bloom

Hello again, Fab Free!  With Friday and Saturday just around the corner, I’m popping in quickly to share an alluring dress that is perfect for a weekend date night.  Best of all, with just a small investment of time, plus the budget-friendly prize fee, you’ll have plenty of Linden dollars left for shopping!

It’s Our Turn, Now

Last month the Men Only Hunt took place, but it’s time for the fellas to step aside.  The Woman Hunt kicked off on September 1st, and features clothing, shoes, furniture, and the like just the ladies!  My first stop on the hunt trail was Wiccan Wears, and I have to say I am thrilled with the Felicity Splash dress.  A soft shade of lavender with pink and pale green accents, it features long sleeves for cooler autumn nights, an asymmetrical hem, and a sassy, plunging neckline.  I love the way the bodice drapes ever so slightly to emphasize your figure.  To add this frock to your inventory, simply locate the hunt object (bright red lips) and pay the one linden fee.  The hunt runs through September 30th and has sixteen stops along the way.

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
  • Physique

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

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

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

Straight Out of a Fairytale

Straight Out of a Fairytale

This magical lady has come straight from the pages of her own story.  A land filled with beauty, freedom and love, where mystical beings and the every day mingle in a tapestry filled with sparkling adventure and daring.  The best part of her story is that it isn’t completely written yet, and we can all help make it come true…

The Neverending Story

It’s always such fun to put together magical looks and places in SL – an idea that tells a story, put together with free or dollarbie finds really is my passion.  I’ve picked up a few more prizes from the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt.  I love showing these items off so much!  There’s less than a week to go, so if you see something you fancy, don’t wait too long!  Today I’m wearing the Mickellena Gown from Frick n Frack which will set you back just 5L.  You know me, I love a cat themed outfit – plus  you’ll find six pretty pastel shades in the HUD!

In the background, you’ll see the amazing brainchild of Kim’s Kreations.  A whole little magical world that comes forth out of a massive storybook.  Each prize here is just 1L.  You’ll be able to pick up lots of different parts to put together a super cute book nook which includes the big book, a table, a couch, a path made of books, a sparkling tree…and so much more.  What a deal for just 1L each!

Not too much time left to take part!  You’ve got til July 22nd!

Under the Aranyani Trees

Under the Aranyani Trees
I have been yearning for wide open spaces, for the green of nature, and for the gentle sway of leaves in the trees on a soft breeze.  I also have been yearning for a bit of magic, I think – nothing too explosive, just a twinkling of fairy dust here and there to make the every day normalcy less heavy on my soul.  Time to find some magical trees, and dream a little dream.

Enchanted Again

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt is still going – you’ve got just a few days left to pick up some pretty fantastic prizes.  I stopped at two shops in my wanderings and picked up some awesome stuff!  Firstly, I headed over to Grumble to pick up this really pretty floral dress for just 2L.  I love the ruching up the side that makes it just a little more special.  Second stop was Dench Designs for this super cool set of trees.  They are actually quite special – you can click on them to make some lights appear in the trees, or fairies, or even some floating candles (and more!).  This awesome feature (that also comes with a comprehensive set of bento poses which I watched for a really long time – holy finger movements!) only costs 1L, and I can’t impress upon you enough how lovely it is.

A Spot of My Own

A Spot of My Own

I love crafting little sundrenched spots in Second Life… a little place where I could imagine myself reading a book, surrounded by some pretty items and where I can forget the rest of the world for just a little.  With a nice cup of tea, the scene is complete!

Enchanting Decor

I am showing off some of the lovely decor items you’ll find on the trail of the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt this month.  Don’t forget you’ve got until the 22nd to make the rounds, and we like to make sure that you’ve seen all the pretty things that our awesome designers have put together.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 1L chair from StoraxTree (I love that it’s made of cane…so chic!)
  • 2L artwork from SLW Design (the perfect view into an enchanted forest!)
  • 5L candle holder from Sycamore Decor (no comfy spot is complete without candles!)
  • 5L bench from Ballade (I NEED this bench in my RL too… isn’t it gorgeous!??!?!)

Put together your own little homey scenes, we’d love to see what you come up with!
