Laundry Day!

Laundry Day

Here I am gang, back again in stark contrast to my previous (solo – not the one where I am fending off a pack of wild redheads) post, I’m back to my old self again and catching up on some chores.  Plants watered, check.  Blog posts done, check.  Rent paid, check.  Laundry…. in progress!

Doing the laundry is much more fun when you can bring along some adorable cuteness with you to snuggle and smooch while you wait!  My favorite part about laundry is when the dryer stuff comes out nice and toasty… ahhhhhh.  Even if it is hot out for some reason, the heat in fresh laundry is so soothing.  I wonder why that is.  Do you know?

Of course with all my laundry needing to get done, I had to find a new outfit to wear while I washed the rest and so I headed over to the Free Dove, cause I haven’t been in a while, to see what newness they might have.  I wasn’t disappointed of course because I found this to die for outfit (I may live in this and be buried in it!).  I absolutely love the bohemian pattern on the top with the Indian elephants.  Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I know I show you all sorts of styles in my posts my friends, but bohemian (and my whimsical side LURVES Kawaii) is where my soul does a happy dance.  I don’t find nearly as much bohemian as I would like nowadays, it feels like the entire grid is obsessed with jumpsuits lately.  So when I do find it, get out of the way cause Imma gonna do a big ol happy dance!!!

Bonus points if I can find Bohemian and Pink combined!  That’s absolutely ME to a T!

This very yummy ensemble was created by FurtaCor.  You get the top and shorts (plus boots and a necklace not shown) for free, natch cause its the Free Dove, and it fits:

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

The pose and laundry basket (I had to adjust the size of it) I found on market by Danu for 37L. She has lots of affordable poses, so her store is a good one to check out for poses if you don’t want to break the bank.  She has some really cute ones.

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

When Bloggers go Bad

When Bloggers go Bad

Ah, sorry to say it does happen, bloggers do go bad.  When the deadlines become too much, when your creativity has been squashed away by demanding designers and events…. sometimes a girl just *snaps* (or a guy!) and there goes poor Teddy, who never said a mean thing to her in his entire life….  it’s so sad….

Kidding!  I’m kidding gang!  No teddy bears were harmed in the writing of this blog post!  That’s not really blood, its just ketchup!!!!  And its just a rubber knife I am wielding!  I couldn’t even cut a tag off a new dress with that thing!

It’s just me getting ready for my Halloween photos.  I have to say, Halloween is my very favorite time of the year in second life.  There are always haunted carnivals and zombies chasing you, and sometimes really grisly stuff that makes me squeal and squirm at my desk and I wonder what some people are actually thinking because it starts to borderline on just a wee bit *too* demented, you know?  But all in all it’s a lot of fun and I love to dress up and take scary pictures for a month or so, if you want to see some of my old Halloween creations just check my Flickr, I will keep it tame (er!) on Fab Free of course, but in my other blogging world… bwahahaha!!!!!  Look out!

However, I do have a reason for this post (don’t I always???), I’ve been continuing the treacherous Twisted Hunt and came up with this cute and slightly sinister outfit at Maya’s Meshy Stuff.  The shirt has a little evil (also knife wielding) bunneh on it.  It’s very INFP, the cute but can be scary thing, and I fully embrace it!  This is as I said previously a totally free hunt (but you gotta work for stuff!) and the top and skirt were hidden separately.  It’s a fun hunt to get you into that twisted spooky frame of mind for Halloween time.

This outfit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Spookily yours,

Wandering Wonderland

coming soon

B2K Design is a new to me store, but I am so glad I discovered it!  Not only do they have some super cute clothes, but they have a wall of retirement outfits for 50L each!  I picked up this verrrryyyyyy sweet little dress there.  It’s so cute and I want to send y’all shopping for it and the other 50L goodies so let’s not dilly, shall we?

This dress and the other items as I said are only 50L each on the retirement wall, and there is no group needed to get the discount, anyone can buy them.  This dress fits:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

It also comes with a HUD that gives you a choice of 6 lovely textures, I absolutely adored this Sakura one.  When I wore it I just had to find someplace whimsical to photograph it!

I paired it up with a very unique and pretty eyeliner I got at Ramilla.  It is a free group gift and that group is free to join.

Happy weekend all!

Going Green

green_004

Happy weekend gang!

I’m sorry I haven’t been around much, I’ve had to move my store and I’m also hopefully moving home in second life and anyone who has moved in world knows what an undertaking it is!  Not only finding the right place but then getting everything moved and set back up!  Whew, I tell ya it’s enough to wear a girl out!

Fortunately, if you are feeling worn out, I have just the cure!  A sexy minidress for only 15L, plus free hair and shoes!  Woohoo!

It’s so Easy being Green!

I honestly don’t understand why Kermit sings about how difficult it is being green, I found it quite easy when wearing this sexy little number from Witchcraft that I found over at The Bundles Autumn Event.  They have freebies galore but I was drawn to the bright and funky color of this cute minidress that Witchcraft had out for only 15L.  Well, that’s practically free, right?  This adorbs dress fits:

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

The Bundles Event runs until the 25 of September so you have some time to browse and enjoy and scoop up all the wonderful free goodies celebrating Bundles 5th Birthday (no group required!), and also some awesome deals!

These scintillating boots are a free group gift from Promagic.  Their group is free to join, and these fit Maitreya.  They come in a bunch of pretty colors so you can mix and match with lots of outfits.

Lastly, but soitenly not leastly, my hair is a free group gift from Moon.  Their group is currently free to join and you get a whole lot of group gift hairs.

Hokey dokey kiddos, that’s all from me for this time!

Ladies and Gentleman…. Please Welcome Sir Paul Mc…..

sir paul

Hey gang,

I have to tell you about the exciting time I had the other night.  I was asked to introduce at an event but little did I know that I would be introducing Sir Paul!  (McCartney!)  Myyyyylanta I was flustered but I did my best and he came out on stage and as I was stepping away he grabbed my hand and asked me to sing Silly Love Songs with him.  Well, I love that song and I had a mad crush on him when I was young so startled and nervous as I was I stayed and it was sooo much fun!  I’m so glad I have a photo capturing the evening, this was the moment he grabbed my hand to stop me from walking away!  Oh swooon!

Well, it’s a nice fantasy!  My dream when I was young was to grow up and have that Paul and Linda relationship, where you are *so* in love and travel around the world making music together!  sigh….. (That didn’t happen, natch!)  It would have been my dream life!

Today I am here to tell you about a super fun shop I found called Mesh County!  That is where I found Paul (for only 35L!), but they have all sorts of mesh people and things, for great prices (If you are a Star Wars, Marvel or a Freddie Mercury fan, I have a feeling you will be *extra* pleased with what you can find there!  wink wink!).  I found some awesome people and characters for photos and heck if you even want to decorate with them, that works too!  Perhaps I will find Paul a special place at home or at the Fab Free Headquarters!  *giggle*

Oh and Halloween is coming, as you know and Mesh County has all sorts of fun spooky goodies for Halloween at great prices too!  Go check it out!  Lots of fun deals to be had!  Live *your* fantasy too perhaps?  I think they need to make a mesh of Sting for me.  😉

Happy shopping (and fantasizing!)!!!

❤ Arielle

Melty but Yummy!

ice cream final

Hey gang!

This ice cream cone reminds me of growing up, it was always so hot in the summer when the ice cream man came around, that you had to eat your ice cream fast or it would just melt away in record time leaving you with nothing but a puddle!  That said a soft serve cone with chocolate ice cream is just what I can use after a long day of shopping.

So thanks to a tip from Aline, I scooped up this absolutely adorbs dress free at The Makeover Room Event.  It is a free group gift from Entice, and the group is free to join (Makeover Room Group).  It comes in:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

So super cute and versatile, I feel like this can be for a casual date or even something more fancy.  Now if I don’t drip ice cream all over mine, I’ll tuck this into my closet (inventory!) for another time, it’s a keeper!

Happy almost the weekend gang!

Just a Wee Bit o’ Kawaii Magic!

kawaii magic

Tick Tick Tick Gang!

I’ve got lots of time sensitive goodies for you tonight!  But I couldn’t resist sharing all the fun!

Most time sensitive first!

I ran out just a short while ago and grabbed some super cute and fun items from the designers at So Kawaii Sunday.  My hair is from Kuni, you get the basic pack for 65L and if you want the style pack (I did), that’s also another 65L.  Still a very good deal.  This hair is called Serenity and for some reason it’s not by the so Kawaii Sunday sign, I had to do an area search but it is upstairs for these prices.  That’s where I grabbed mine.  Perhaps because I am a tad bit early!

I also grabbed these cute Sakura Cards (with bento poses) from Unicorn for 65L.  I combined them with my own poses for my full pose.  They pose your hands, but the rest of your body is up to you!  It comes with the magical circle just behind me, the halo.  It turns slowly as you wear it.  Really lovely.

You have all day Sunday (August 29) to grab these and all the other So Kawaii Sunday deals.  I love the cute pink kawaii sparkly everything, so I kind of wait for this with baited breath every Saturday night!

“Just One More Thing, Ma’am” (bonus points if you know what I got this from!)

Now one more thing and thats all the wonderfulness of color and sparkly-ish-ness you see around me.  That is from Vibing and you can find it at the FLF Birthday Bash we have been going on and on about!  It was 50L, it is a sphere and although I just used it for some photos so far it is meant to live in or whatever you want to do with yours and I bet that would just be beautiful and magical!  If you do set up a home in one of these, please do invite me over so I can see what you did!  I bet the imagination is *limitless!*  You have until September 3rd to shop at the birthday bash!

Happy Magical Sparkling, erm, shopping!

Dance of the Elephant

Mirage Treasure Co. is one of my very favorite stores.  I love all the exotic, Arabian, Moroccan, Eastern Indian, etc. décor.  I love the clothes too, it’s something I used to make a lot of in my shop, Shanti.

In my latest visit to Mirage, I decided to delve a bit into their group and free group gifts.  The group costs 100L to join, but there is an entire underground cave with hidden goodies, both décor and clothing for you to find.  There are also lucky chairs with some absolutely stunning prizes!  That’s what I am showing you today.

The dress I am wearing above (don’t you just *love* those colors!!) is one of the outfits you can get on the group lucky chairs (did I mention they also have outfits for the guys too!), it also comes with a gorgeous head jewel.  It fits:

  • Belleza
  • Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The furniture below is just a handful of gorgeous furniture and items for your home that you can get on the lucky chairs.  The couch and chairs are color change, so they are great to mix and match!  If you are looking for an exotic atmosphere for your home, look no further than Mirage Treasure Co.
