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!

I will be showing you this adorable little dress, which is on sale for a limited time, and this gorgeous skin which is a group gift from an amazing designer!

This is the Dorian dress, and it includes a colour change hud that allows you to change it to green, red, yellow, and blue.

Secondly, I am wearing the gorgeous Lucy skin by Nuve that may just become my new go-to. The Nuve group currently costs 250L to join, but you get lots of great group gifts including this amazing skin.

Hachi & I

beach_011

So, just sitting here with my buddy Hachi musing about this adorbs summer dress that I found for only 5L on market.  Yup, it’s true!  Aria has a bunch of items on Market for only 5L, but its just today and tomorrow (the 13th and 14th) so ya gotta hurry on this one!  Everything was so cute I didn’t know what to pick to blog for y’all, but this dress felt so beachy and Hawaiian, I chose it.  This fits only Maitreya but their items fit all kinds of bodies, you just have to check the listings.

Hachi is from Fashiowl and he came with a set of really cute poses for only 60L for the Happy Weekend Sale, I just checked and they still have it up, so if you want him, go grab him NOW.  You will be glad you did, I had sooo much fun posing with him!  By the way, he fits all sizes of bodies!!  😀

Road Trip!

beetle_011

I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely LOVE a good road trip!  I’ve always wanted to do a road trip with a bunch of girlfriends in a convertible and driving someplace fun like Route 66 or something.  Stopping at different places and experiencing so many little adventures while on one big adventure!  Riding with the top down and the wind in our hair and waving at cute boys in other cars!  Ahh, the bliss of it all!

As for now, I just stand next to my beetle hoping some friends will come by and we can make the dream a reality!  Someone should make a road trip sim.  Where you can get in a car and drive around to all different recreations of real life places, like the worlds biggest ball of twine, and the Grand Canyon.  That would be a hoot!

Well, at least I look cute while I wait.  Of course as a fab free girl, you *know* I didn’t break the bank to look good either!  My cute dress is from Starshine Design, I got this in the Life’s a Beach Hunt for 25L.  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Classic
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

The Life’s a Beach Hunt goes until July 31.

It’s all about the Shoes

My awesomesauce shoes are a free group gift at MOoH! at the moment.  Suuuuper duper cute with a HUD and a bunch of colors to choose from!  Their group is 100L to join but they have a gift card for 150L every month for group members so you get it back right away and then some.  It just keeps on giving!  They fit:

  • Belleza
  • Classic
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic

ok well, gonna finish packing up the car for this trip.  Happy Summer!

Cherish Those Nights when the Moon and the Stars aren’t the Brightest Things in the Sky

Amui

I absolutely love fireworks.  That hasn’t always been the case, I was terrified of them as a child.  I remember looking at them and feeling like they were so close they were going to burn me, I was not pleased.  However, once I got past that it has been one long honeymoon for me and fireworks, for as you know, I love all things colorful and sparkly!  Put that up in the night sky and you’ve made me a happy girl!  I don’t like that they scare pets though.  😦  That part makes me sad.

So here in the states, as most of you know, we celebrate Independence Day.  I feel like this year it stands for more than just one kind of independence.  Partly, a coming out of the pandemic (hopefully!) and partly political for some of us.  That makes it a bit extra happy for me this year.

I wanted to find something extra cute to wear to see the fireworks, and I found this adorbs dress at AMUI who has it for free, no group required (the vendor will ask you for 1L and give it right back, some vendors have to do that).  It fits:

  • Altamura
  • BBL
  • Freya
  • Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • V-Tech

It also comes with a HUD so you can choose from 5 festive star spangled patterns for your holiday dress!

Now, my cute little Firework I am holding is from Rabbit House and it is a gacha at SL18B that is only 40L!  They even have wearable fireworks that go off when you walk!  Soooo cute!  SL18B will be there until the 6th so there is still time to hit up this gacha and make yourself festively sparkly!

Happy Independence Day America!

Enchanted Wonderland

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! It’s time to share my take on FabFree’s Enchanted Forest Hunt, which is simply AMAZING! I love fantasy, magic and forests so this is a must- do hunt! You can read all about our hunt going on here

Enchanting Decor

The first few prizes I want to share from the hunt are a few pieces of beautiful decor at Noveny, one of my all-time favourite furniture and decor stores. The hunt items from this lovely designer are whimsical and remind me a bit of Alice in Wonderland. I love that floating clock especially, and it even have a beautiful inscription of the store name on it. In addition to the clock, there are also 2 lanterns, and that awesome tree with the sparkling magical globe inside available as prizes on the cute! These are awesome items, and they cost 5L each on the hunt. The hints to find the 4 items are:

  1. “Let us assist you”
  2. “Don’t have a sweet tooth, you can get caught”
  3.  “Love Love Love, red, sorry love”
  4.  “I’m the bigger one here”

Enchanting Dress

The other item I am showing today is the beautiful Crystal Dress, which is the hunt prize by Ari-Pari. There are 5 versions of the dress available for 5L each, just look for those little fairies and these dresses are yours! The hints to find the 5 dresses are:

  1. “Don’t forget to vote!”
  2. “Watch your step!”
  3. “Feel free to join our group!”
  4. “Twinkle, twinkle little… hedge?!”
  5. “How much is that faerie in the window?”

Sizes Included

  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Lara 
  • Legacy

Hunting for Fairies!

ap_007

So as you are all aware of (or you should be!) the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt is in full swing!  It is a theme I love because I am all about fantasy!  When I do a photo, I feel like I am creating a character and that character has a story!  For instance, my character today has some sort of mystical thing going on, her outfit, her magical sphere, where she is (some secret forest place?).

I know you want all the deets so lets do it.  😉  Both my items can be found in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt, so get your hunting shoes on (or do it barefoot, Like I do!) and do some hunting!

Fairy Hunting!

My dress is one of five from Ruxy, it fits Matireya and Legacy.  All her hunt gifts are only 1L and all very cute!

My orb/sphere is from Afterparty who makes so much fun glowy stuff.  This is a 5L gift.

How to get them?  Just find the little rainbow fairy hiding in the store (some stores have several!) pay them and they will give you a gift as a thank you for finding them!  Such cute, generous little souls!

Other Yummy Finds

My hair is a freebie from the Hair Fair (goes until July 4!) made by No.Match.  There is no group required to grab the gifts at the Hair Fair!

The little fireflies glowing around my head are a free group gift from Persefona.  That group is free to join and she’s got lots of fun goodies for taking photos at her shop, if you have never been there!

Last the little garden area behind me (not the trees, just the cool colorful part!) is a free SL18B gift (no group required!) from Dreamland Designs!
