Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007

Sometimes, you just *gotta* blog something.  The wings on this outfit sold me, I tried them on and said “woah!” out loud.  Sold.  Must blog.  Sometimes too you can see the end photo in your head, sometimes you can get there and sometimes you can’t, but when you are inspired, there is always a vision.  I saw my vision and got to create it this time, so I am grateful and blessed.

and I love anything with fingerless gloves.  😛  Just by the way.

So this awesome getup is another of those awesome free goodies at the Halloween Shop & Hop going on now and lasting until the end of the month.  This is courtesy of Alter, which is a new to me designer (I’m discovering so many amazing designers lately!  It’s such a delight!).

Honestly, you are gonna be unpacking for agessssss once you go to the shop & Hop (as usual!), I even wrote down a few places I want to go back to once I have some more lindens.  There are also a few gift cards as gifties.

I’ve got one more Shop & Hop showcase coming up for you, so hold tight.  Then it’s back to the spooky!

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

In the wild places

In the wild places

While the world is full of troubles
And anxious in its sleep.

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.

~ W B Yeats

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!

Stay Wild, Moon Child

Stay Wild Moon Child

Would you like to swing on a star
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a… fab free blogger???
Hey gang!
‘Tis just me, your favorite blonde barefoot blogger!  My picture today shows where my brain is most of the time…. off floating in space.  And I do love the moon, adore the moon!  Even though my sun sign is ruled by the sun (I am a Leo, as is our faithful Fab Free Leader, Aline), I do have a weakness for the beauty, romanticism, poetry and magic of sister moon.  If I weren’t deathly afraid of heights, I might want to sit with the man on the moon, watching shooting stars and whispering about the wonders of the universe.  As it stands, I shall stay here on Earth, blogging the hours away.

Fab Free Wants YOU (yes, YOU!!!!)

Speaking of such things as blogging, we are looking for some bloggers to join our team!
Yessireebob! (who is this guy Bob anyway??)  You know you love to find freebies and you just *know* you love to take pics of yourself wearing them and using them cause gosh darnit you just look soooooo freaking cute in those freebies!  You may not know it yet, but you would just have a *blast* sharing those photos and freebies on the fab free blog for the entire world to see!  Never mind the giant bonus points of becoming part of our happy lil fab free fam!
I have to honestly say, since I started here back at the very beginning of the year, I have felt so welcomed by everyone and so part of this family, I can’t think of anyplace I would rather be now.  So it is more than just a blog, it is a little family of friends who got yer back on your blogging journey.
And don’t feel shy!  I am *the* world’s biggest introvert, but on here I get to be who I am without judgment (actually we are *all* introverts on here!  Who knew?!  Right?), so I am talking to *you*, yes YOU, the one reading this and wondering whether you should or not and I say go for it!  You never regret the things you do, you only regret the things you DON’T do!  And I say you have a place here!
Can’t commit to being a full time blogger?  That’s ok, be a contributor!  Dip your toe in the water!  What have you got to lose?  Like Nike says, Just do it!  Click here!

Where was I?

Oh yes the moon.  😉  I’ve got moon themed goodies for you today gang!  First off this moon I am posed on, is a 1L dollarbie at Meander Me, you can find it in the Sooty Wing section of the store (over to the left after you come in) and there is no group required.  I couldn’t resist a moon with poses!
The space around me is called Space Within Moon and it is a 30L find on marketplace, its a hollowed out moon that you can use for any time you want to feel like you are in space, or even living in space as I think it is large enough for a small home.
Now ladies and gents, I believe I have babbled quite enough for one morning.  😉  Happy weekend y’all!

Here a Mooh, There a Mooh, Everywhere a Mooh Mooh!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

I have so much wonderfulness for you today courtesy of MOoH!  Let’s begin underwater, shall we?

Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter…Under the Sea!

(You’re singing it now, aren’t you?)

There is a wonderland of fun and fabulous gachas at MOoH!, this is just one of them, the Mermaid Gacha.  It is only 50L a play and let me tell you, these items are gorgeous and you will be heading underwater before you know it to sing siren songs and collect up some studly unsuspecting sailors of your very own!  The key is below so you can see all the amazing things you can get to mermaid yourself!  (that’s like a very non insulting insult.  Hey!  Go mermaid yourself, huh!)  The rainbow color I am wearing is the RARE (for the *extra* studly sailors!  Hee hee).

MOoH! Mermaid gacha

Tail:

  • Belleza
  • Slink

My very mermaid-y hair is from No.Match, it is a free group gift (group is 50L to join, but when I tell you for that 50L you can get well over 40 group gifts for both the ladies and the guys. I’m not whistling dixie y’all!)  It’s a really hairy group!  In this case that’s a good thing!!

My Makeup is from MOCK (eyes 40L on Marketplace) and Freebees (Lips free!).

coming soon to fab free

Can you say MOoH!-licious?

I am such a sucker for all things bohemian.  Both in second life and real life!  MOoH! is participating in the Peace by Peace Hunt and they have this absolutely adorable boho style dress as their prize.  I chose an extra bold color for my picture cause, well, that’s just me!  This dress comes with a HUD that gives you 8 patterns to choose from for the dress and the cute gladiator sandals that come with it (not shown, obv.).  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine

This is a 1L hunt and runs from June 1 to June 30.

Spaced Out Girl

Space Girl

It’s a wild and windy blustery day here in space, gang.  But then, it’s space and it nearly always is.  Luckily I have the right gear so I am not exposed to the elements.   Most importantly though, thanks to Tableau Vivant, my hair looks sooo faboo, even in this wind!  If you are looking for windblown hair that looks ah-mazing, then Tableau is the place you wanna go (hey!  a rhyme!), I got this from their Hairplay gacha for only 75L!  Stunninnnnngggggg!

For my backdrop, well that was another little drop in the bucket at only 65L on marketplace!  It’s made by Lolly Prop, and is a super cute deal!

Now, I must get back down to earth (bah!  I much prefer it in space, so blissfully quiet!), and continue my Saturday!

Til next time!  toodle – loo!

Down in the willows

Down in the willows

Do you have a fantasy? Are you stuck in the boring real world when you’d rather be chasing dragons or spinning magic? Maybe you don’t always feel… human.  If you aren’t careful… the “real” world will crush those dreams and force you down into a skin that maybe doesn’t fit your heart. Come remember your wild side before it slips away.

We ♥ Role Play has what you need to feed your fantasy… but only until May 31st.  Come play with your dreams

All Featured Gifts are at the We ♥ Role Play Event until May 31st

Dress (Maitreya exclusive)- Tres (Faida + Velvet Whip)- Taramis Dress –  FREE/0L – Free gift for the We ♥ Role Play Subscriber group – Group is free to join

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!

Magic in the Night

fc_013

Hey fab fans!

One of my favorite things about blogging in second life is the ability to create a fantasy in a photo. Something that you can imagine has a story behind it. We can morph our avatars into just about anything, so really you are limited only by your imagination. I’m sort of an airy-fairy girl on the inside, so I had a lot of fun with this photo shoot. I built myself a little enchanted fairy forest (with some nifty goodies from Fantasy Illuminations). I also dug out my old fairy wings. They are animated/scripted and my faves.

This cute dress from Ari-Pari. It is a gift in the Life is Sweet and So are You Hunt.   This hunt runs until March 31. It is a 1L hunt, but each designer has the option of a 25L exclusive item. This cute dress is a 1L prize.  It comes in:

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

Stay tuned!  Next time I’ve got some Bond Girl mystique for you!  😀
