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!

Hey Gang!

I hope you have begun the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt because there are only a few days left!  (Gosh that flew by!  Didn’t it???) I know Aline has been a crazy woman snapping up gifts left and right!  (not that she *isn’t * a crazy woman when she isn’t hunting, but for that matter all us Fab Free gals are a bit off center and crazy in our own way!)  But that’s why you guys love us!  (you do love us, don’t you??)

Anyhoo!  I’ve been grabbing some more goodies from the hunt too and today I’ve got the very elusive free hunt goody from Masoom.  This shirt is all kinds of wonderful happy colors and I love the lace on the sleeves!  It fits:

  • Kupra
  • Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Legacy

To get it just look for the little Fab Free colored fairy and click her, she will give you her prize as a reward for finding her.

Stay cool gang!  Happy Hunting!

Dance Like No One is Watching

ddbr_020

Hey gang!

Our very own Fab Free Designer Seetra Poses has a beautiful set of poses as the free gift for the Orsy Event for July.  They are all lovely classical dance poses, with one more beautiful than the other!  You do have to join the Orsy Group, but that is free to join as well.  It runs until the 23rd of July, so you have about a week and a half to run over and grab these amazing poses (after the event you can get them at the main store for regular price).  These would even make fun fairy or enchanted poses, and at this price (Free!  Can’t get better than that!) they are a must for any photographer or blogger!  😀

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!

Summery Sprinkles

Coming soon

I remember as a kid, the fourth of July meant so many fun things, fireworks, roasting marshmallows and spending all day long in the pool!  Well you were waterlogged and exhausted by the end of the day but it was a happy sleep.

I’m reliving a little bit of that this weekend thanks to Dreamland Designs who has all sorts of pool related goodies (not to mention an actual pool!) on sale for Sunday.  The pool comes in both PG and Adult and that is only 50L for Secret Sale Sundays.  It’s got all sorts of fun animations!

Also for Secret Sale Sunday you can pick up these adorable float rings I am hanging out in.  They come in designs for both the ladies and the men (also have two different styles of floaties) and they too have either PG or Adult animations.  Again, just 50L!  Whatttt?????  Crazy right?

Shhh I’m not done!

The the red white and blue float behind me?  That’s a freebie for the fourth of July!  It is out at the shop, no group required!  Venora has outdone herself, truly.  What a fun bunch of deals!

Still not done… For this weekends SoKawaiiSundays, you can pick up the cute bikini I am wearing for only 65L over at Moon Amore.  Its soo cute, it comes in several color choices, plus sprinkles!  I feel like a little summery cupcake!  Squeee!  It fits Maitreya, Legacy and Kupra.

Now, I better get some rest if I am going swimming all day tomorrow!  Yay!

Happy 4th of July Americans!

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!

Comfy & Cozy

Coming Soon

Some days you just need to regroup.  And on those days, you need a glass of wine, or  a jug of your favorite ice cream, and something to binge watch…. most importantly, you need something comfy that you love to snuggle in.  I’ve found the perfect something at Promagic and you know what?  It’s free!  In fact, they have an entire room of freebies (100!  So I’ve heard!) for their group (which is free to join by the way!), Aline recently showcased another outfit here.

My outfit is called Kanya and it comes bursting with jeans choices and colors for your big comfy sweater!   This outfit is made for Maitreya, but since its free you can always get it and try it out!  😀

Happy hermiting gang!  snuggle in!!  Only a couple of more days til the weekend!
