Walking in a Winter Wonderland

winter_006Just Tara and I and a mug of hot chocolate taking a stroll through the snow at dusk.  Tara loves the snow.  Me, not so much.  I get cold very quickly so I do much prefer sl snow.  I do however, *always* love a nice yummy steaming cup of hot chocolate!  I don’t drink coffee at all, and only enjoy herbal tea when the mood strikes me, but being the big kid I am, nothing warms me like a chocolate-y mug of goodness!

I got this cozy jacket and scarf combo at Vips Creations, it’s a group gift and her group is only 2L to join!  The scarf is separate from the jacket and so you can wear it without the scarf if you so choose!  She has numerous group gifts available.

The jacket and scarf come in:

  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

The boots are a group gift from HH (Hilly Haalan), the group is free to join and they have an entire room of group gifts for you to grab!  The boots come in:

  • Freya
  • HourGlass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Til next time, stay warm y’all!

Get Your Halo Dirty

Dirty Halo

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m so ready for the weekend, and I’m feeling sweet and sinister in this pastel look. I hope you have fun with these pretty playful group gifts from Dappa and Safira I have to share with you. Let’s get to it!

Dappa

Watercolor style tattoos always look so delicate and lovely to me. I even like the pastel blues and purples of this free group gift tattoo from Dappa. The tattoo comes in BOM layers and appliers (with a fresh and a faded option) for most mesh bodies. Also, the Dappa group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Maitreya Applier, Legacy Applier, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, BOM Layers

Safira

If you ask me it doesn’t need to be October for you to wear skeletons, or in this case skeleton hands! This cute bodysuit is the latest group gift at Safira. I really like that this bodysuit has a version meant to be worn with pants, and one meant to be worn by itself. This free group gift also has a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices, and some metal options for the little heart-shaped buttons. The Safira group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there is an entire wall of group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), MeshBody Legacy

Sarcasm

Sarcasm

Alright Fab Free’rs, I have to say I really am not in to the whole concept of a New Year resolution. I’ve made them in the past, and struggled to keep up with them, and ultimately ended up feeling guilty or disappointed in myself if my resolution didn’t work out. I think we tend to put too much pressure on ourselves to become the best brightest shiny new version of ourselves just because it’s the start of a new trip around the sun. I am all for self betterment, I just think it has to happen in my/your own time.

ZFG

For this post, this group gift hoodie top from ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) just really summed up the concept of a New Year resolution for me. Sarcasm is also my favorite kind of ‘casm, whatever that means. lol The ZFG group is free to join, and this snarky shirt is free with your ZFG group tag. Since I know my cell phone covers up part of the text it reads “My New Year’s resolution is to reign in my sarcasm. Like that is going to happen.”.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), MeshBody Legacy

Zombie Suicide

These glasses. Moons, stars, oversized lenses, these glasses from Zombie Suicide called out to me “Pru, you must take us home with you…”. Really, a must-have for me. They are the most recent group gift at Zombie Suicide, and the group has a 100 linden join fee. There are also past group gifts available. This gift has a color change hud as well that allows you to change the color of the frames, and the moon/stars so you can match these babies with everything.

Magnifique!

Je t'aimeBonjour Mon Cheri!

I hope this blog finds all you lovely blossoms doing well on this very chilly Sunday (where I am anyhow, windy and in the 20’s brrrrrr!)  With Valentine’s less than a month away, I’m beginning to think romantical thoughts.  The new group gift from no.match (group is 50L to join!) put me positively over the edge with romantical FRENCH thoughts!  It’s a lovely Parisian style bob (aka French Bob) which seems vintage but is always in style.  It symbolizes a woman who is independent, progressive and spirited!  I bet you didn’t even know that this french hairstyle was inspired by Joan of Arc!  The website V is for Vintage states; “Celebrity hairdresser Antoine referenced the French heroine when creating his new bobbed hairstyle. It is introduced into his Paris salon around 1909 and creates a new fashion fad. ”  It states too that in the 21st century, the bob still exudes “retro, chic, edgy, vintage, arty” vibes.  So… you can’t go wrong!

I paired it up with this very chic set from Shanti which is a new fab free gift that you can grab just by putting your fab free tag on.  The shop also carries 6 other colored sets which are currently on promo for 99L!  While I don’t have a history to share with you regarding the shorts/blazer outfit, I’ve seen this style in numerous shops lately and really love them.  Dressy and casual all wrapped into one!

These outfits come in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Au Revoir beautiful fabbies!

Camp Quarantine

Camp Quarantine

Hello hello Fab Free! Yes, you are seeing things correctly, I am wearing a top made from masks. Honestly, even though it does make me laugh, I do kind of hope that this will be the way to wear masks one day sooner rather than later. My quarantine fashion moment is courtesy of a new group gift at Worldwide. Also, Petrichor has two new group gifts, one of which is this delicate white mandala-like tattoo. You know how this works from here, I’ll give you more details below, and full credits at the end. Have a great weekend Fab Free’rs!

Worldwide 

Sometimes it’s good to find a little comic relief in whatever way you can. Yes, this top by Worldwide is good for a bit of a giggle, but it’s also cute for a warm sunny day. This “Quarantina” bra top is a free group gift at Worldwide. You can join their group for free as well. The top comes in the classic blue and white paper mask colors shown only, and quite a few sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy, Belleza Freya, KUPS, Kupra, Slink Hourglass

Petrichor

I love this pretty upper-arm tattoo from Petrichor. It’s one of their most recent group gifts. The Petrichor group is free to join, so no reason to pass this one up. The tattoo comes in BOM layers only with a regular version and an “etched” version. Also, a little side note, Petrichor is formerly The Plastik, so that’s the group you’ll be joining.

Weirdly Cute!

collage

Hey fab fam!

So, here I am back with you today to share a bit of the cute and trendy mixed in with a tad of weird (but good artsy weird.  I personally *love* weird!).  That *almost* sums up me, except I’m a lot more of the weird.  😉  Embrace your weird, folks, it can get you through a lot of tight spots!  😀

This cute top and shorts are two separate group gifts from BDR (Beautiful Dirty Rich).  The group is free to join and they have so many cute group gifts.  Not to mention their clothing line is adorbs!  The top comes with a HUD of six textures, to suit your every mood and the shorts come with a HUD that has two textures.  Sizes are as follows (Both tee and shorts):

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya (Bigger)
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine

I have always loved parasols… and I came across this one from Rotten Toe.  It is only 50L on market and comes with a holding pose.  The Broken Dolls Umbrella comes in 7 styles, you get them all for your 50L to mix and match any way you see fit with your wardrobe.  I love the oddball quirkiness and style of it.

Stay weird folks but don’t drink the kool aid!

Eat the Darn Cake

Eat the Cake

Sometimes you just need to let go and eat the cake. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Definitely not afraid of a little indulgence, I happily gave in to my sweet-tooth and picked up this delicious looking cake at Cinoe. Secondly, while this sweater isn’t the same sort of indulgence, it feels like a splurge of the same kind of self gratification. It’s a recent group gift at Sentinus. I’ll let you know how to get your hands on both of these fabulous group gifts for free below.

Cinoe

This lovely little three-tier chocolate cake with fruit topping is a free group gift at Cinoe. The Cinoe group is free to join, and you can pick this sweet freebie up in the group notices or at the Cinoe main location. The cake is a decor/display item. It does not include any poses or animations. If you head to Cinoe and click the gift vendor while wearing your Cinoe group tag, you’ll get a folder with this chocolate cake gift and several other previous group gifts for free.

Cinoe Group: secondlife:///app/group/451c34ba-29f6-ba62-53bf-5e15f6634649/about

Sentinus

I’ll admit for a split second I thought to myself “Do I really need another sweater?” when I saw this free group gift at Sentinus, and I quickly put that thought out of my mind. No one needs that sort of negative self-talk. Of course I need another sweater, especially one as cute as this one! I really do like the fit of this sweater, and it has a ton of color/texture options making it a must-have. The Sentinus group is free to join also, so honestly, why not add another sweater to your wardrobe?!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

The High Priestess

Oh hello there, and thank you as always for being here. I think it goes without saying that I’m feeling a bit devilish in my new dress from Shy Doll. The best part, it didn’t cost me a thing. For this post I’m excited to be sharing with you a limited time group gift at Shy Doll.

The Shy Doll group is free to join, and from now until Saturday January 23rd you can get a free 500 linden gift card with your group tag. If you ask me that’s one h-e-double hockey-sticks of a deal. Have fun, and happy shopping!

Technicolor Rainbow

Technicolor Rainbow

As much as I love winter, I have to admit this outfit has me daydreaming about warmer weather. Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m glad you’re here. For this post I’m really excited about the new group gift at MicRo, and Demicorn has out a group gift that I don’t know how I missed and can’t wait to share with you. Keep reading for all the whosits and whatsits and where and how.

MicRo

I really like this pleated skirt by MicRo a lot, mostly because it’s not a skirt but rather a skort. What’s a skort you ask? Skirt + short = skort. That’s right, there are mini-shorts under this mini-skirt. This free group gift has a color change hud with 4 solid color choices to pick from. Also, the MicRo store group is free to join.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Freya, Venus, Isis)

Demicorn

I love a good lippie, in any life, and especially Second Life. This pretty matte lip color is part of a group gift applier set at Demicorn. The “Sugarplum” set has a range of lip colors in berry reds and blue-violets. The Demicorn group has a join fee of 100 linden, and there are quite a few group gifts available.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Genus

Candy Crush

candy crush_003

Hey ho fab freers!

Have I ever told you how much I adore candy? The chocolates, the colors, the flavors, the bliss! Why, I am just *mad* for candy! Absolutely in love with it!  One might go so far as to say that I have a candy crush!!

I’m also a fiend for the color pink and unicorns. While I have always loved unicorns (and horses), I used to avoid the color pink like the plague. Nowadays it is my power color, so do forgive me if some of my posts seem rather, well… pink!

Today I have for you a very cute pink dress by Art & Fashion Creations that I am wearing in front of the candy stand and enjoying some wonderful cotton candy. Mmmmm. It is a happy moment.  This dress was a free gift from Art & Fashion Creations, for being a part of the MLM Free&Offers group, which is free to join.

The dress comes in these sizes:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

A note of interest, Art & Fashion Creations creates all their clothing based on actual works of art, so every one is unique.

Until next time dear readers, enjoy the candy but watch out for that sugar rush!

❤ Arielle
