Let’s Go

Let's Go

I was talking to one of my friends who lives on another continent.  She was telling  me about how the snowdrops are pushing their heads through the snow – a sure sign that winter was relenting.  Unfortunately, winter has a tendency to not relent in my part of the world.  We Canadians get used to having Winter last until at least April…so let’s bundle up!

Warmth for One Linden

This awesome outfit comes courtesy of Monomania and it costs only 1L!  It comes complete with the jacket, jeans, shoes (sized for Slink, Legacy, Maitreya, Belleza and Tonic), and shirt.  It comes with an HUD to change to 6 different colours too.  No need to join a group, just pay 1L to the vendor you’ll find just to the left of the main counter of the store.  Doesn’t get much easier (or toasty) than this!

  • Venus

A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

A Froot Loop in a World of Cheerios

The reams of writing that has taken place over the years about the importance of the little black dress is longer than I care to imagine.   Any nattering I can do about the importance of one is only sure to muddy the waters of deep thinking about how one must needs have a LBD for any occasion.  Instead, perhaps I’ll discuss how much I love Froot Loops.  And then, I’ll wonder what human sat down to think it would be cool to write the word “froot” instead of “fruit”.  These are the things that keep me up at night!

Lucky Girl

There are two new lucky board prizes over at Luas!  You may have guessed by now that this little black dress is one of the two prizes that are currently available, the other being a red dress.  The letter A came up pretty quick for me this time, so I suggest you grab a bunch of friends and head over (preferably 26 of them, all with a different letter of the alphabet starting their name? eheheh) and then wait til your letter comes up.  The Luas group is 50L to join, but there is a huge wall of monthly group gifts and the lucky letter boards get changed up pretty often.  Totally worth it!

Journal Musing

Journal Musing

I was having a conversation with Arielle yesterday about how much we both love stationery.  I am the sticker queen (I have far too many to ever use, but they just make me happy) and she is the pen queen.  We’ve both come to the realization, however, that we’re both obsessed with journals.  You know, the really pretty ones that you have no idea what you’re going to write in, but you still buy it because *sssooooo prettyyyyy*.  Yeah, well now I’ve got journals in SL that I surely won’t write in, but I have to have anyway!

Non-Sequitur

My little journal rant has nothing to do with my outfit (I mean, other than the journals I’m holding, obviously), but my sweet top and skirt were putting me in the mood for being artistic and such.  They’re the latest group gift from Maai, and they’re completely free.  Aren’t the little heart buttons adorable?  I can’t even.  Join the Maai group for free, then click on the vendor at the landing point and they’re all yours!

Seeking Surfers

Seeking Surfers
I’m off to the beach today, because I’m totally in need of all things sunny and hot.  And by that, I mean that I just saw a surfer over there and he looks suspiciously like Aquaman, if you catch my drift…

The Shade of it All

I’m still sifting through all the steals and deals that are still available in the hangover period from V-Day.  I headed over to the Sapphire sim and found that the gifts on the Shades of Love Hunt are still out for all to gather.  I walked about picking up some of the prizes, and found one quite lovely 20L prize from Seniha – this three piece swim (or possibly lingerie!) set.  The gifts on this hunt are kind of all over the place in the stores, so you won’t necessarily find the gifts from the shop in their own store.  Anywhos, as mentioned, this pretty little number is 20L and comes in this lovely “chestnut” hue.   You’ve got until Feb 25th to take part!

Kick Back

Kick Back

The weekend has arrived, FabFree!  I’m still reveling in the heart-spattered goodness of Valentine’s Day.  If it’s sweet, red, pink and sugary then I’m all for it these days.

Not Anti-Magic

This cute cropped top is the latest subscriber gift over at Promagic.  It comes with an HUD to change to 5 different heart-covered textures and is just super cute.  I think it would be fairly easy to make different looks happen with this top, pairing it with jeans, or even a skirt.  Always fun to switch things up a bit when you can.  To get it, you’ll have to click on the subscriber unit at Promagic.  It’s the big vendor with the ad for this top on it.  If you are part of the subscriber group already, you’ll have to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to get it, it will be delivered  automatically after that.  If you aren’t yet subscribed, just click! It’s all free, I tells ya!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Legacy

Shoe-tastic

StephaneL have put out these cute heels as their gift for Valentine’s Day, and they just make me smile.  They come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.  To get them, join the group for 15L and they’re all yours!  You may want to also click on the big poster advertising 500L of store credit for group members, because as far as I understand it, that’s about to disappear!  Don’t wait!

/me makes heart eyes at you all

Healing with Crystals

Healing with Crystals

Hey Fab Free! I hope you are all having a great week and have been able to relax. It’s been a bit crazy on my end, but at least I’ve gotten a bit of downtime in-world. I am currently using these crystals for much-needed healing. Also, some shopping therapy always does the trick!

I ❤ American Bazaar

American Bazaar is totally one of my new favourite designers. I love their stuff! This dress is free on the Love for All Hunt. This is the cocktail dress in red. One of the things I love most about this designer is how many bodies they support. It can be hard to find clothes for some these curvy girl brands! See below for details on sizing. 🙂

I should mention, American Bazaar also has a sale on right now. I thought it was supposed to end on the 15th of February, but most of the pink and red vendors in the store are still set to 14 L a piece. If you join the free group and keep the tag on, it’s only 12 L per piece.  If you don’t want to go hunting for the cocktail dress, you can buy it this way for just 12 Linden. I pretty much bought out the whole place on the weekend, so go girls and load up on those sales items! This sale was supposed to end a couple days though, so go quick before it’s gone forever.  Make sure to grab all the free gifts while you’re there too! Yay!

Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Lara
  • Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Ebody Curvy

Crystal Gacha

I’m a big fan of crystals. I love all the different types, what they represent, etc. The Magic Gem gacha at EscalateD is really cool for all the crystal lovers out there. You can hold them, have them hover over your shoulder, or place them in your house as decor. 

The Gacha can be played to win 9 different colours:

  • Sapphire
  • Topaz
  • Peridot
  • Citrine
  • Hyacinth
  • Saltcrystal
  • Garnet
  • Amethyst
  • Moonlight

Zoom over to EscalateD to play this gacha for 50L a pull!

I’m also showing a freebie from micamee today. The pose I am wearing is from micamee, which you can pick up by joining their free group, and they also have a lot of free group gifts out. 

Have a good one, Fab Free!

It’s All Love

It's All Love
I am entirely aware that Valentine’s Day has passed, but that doesn’t mean you have to toss out everything that has a heart on it.  I’m a proponent of love 24/7, so I’ll be donning the hearts til I’m well and ready to stop.  (I’m sure one of my fits of moody darkness with come upon me at some point!).  Let’s dive in to all the goodies that appeared over V-Day that we haven’t gotten to show you yet!

Soft Wool

There’s a new group gift over at Tetra!  Whenever one appears I get kind of excited since they’re so cute and well made.  To get this pretty sweater (it comes with an HUD to change to 4 other other textures too), join the group for 50L, and click on the vendor.  If you’re feeling a bit lazy (isn’t it weird that we get tired from TPing?  Is that just me? ) you can also join the group from afar and check in group notices to grab it, which is always a nice option.  This gift is out for a limited time, and will be gone on Feb. 28th!

To join the Tetra group, copy and paste this code into your local chat: secondlife:///app/group/68562c63-12e8-ca68-c790-21db8d07fd1c/about

Only Cats!

The little heart keychain I’ve got hooked around my finger made me LOL when I saw it.  It’s a new gift over at Boutique 187 and is completely free.  There are several amusing sayings to choose from on the heart, and I’m sure you’ll find one that tickles your fancy.  There are a few other completely free gifts there in the free gift section, so grab them too!

Lots of Love from me!

Attention Shoppers, it’s time to rush!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

Alright Fab Free, the heat is on. I know about all you shoppers out there who wait until the LAST DAY to hit the events, scrambling around trying to grab all the goodies before they’re taken away. I know cause I AM that person! But hey- I’m not judging! Maybe you couldn’t get into the sim! Well today I’m going to tell you about two must haves from the Shop & Hop before it closes today, so make sure you scoop these up before the event ends tonight.

Beloved Blueberry

Blueberry is spoiling us with a free 400 L Credit for all at their Shop & Hop location. No group join is required, so just touch the board to get in on this great offer. If you head over to the Blueberry main store you can grab the ombres pack of the Romance dress which will be completely covered by the credit gift so it is completely free. The credit expires in 2 weeks from when you add it to your balance, so this would be a perfect item to claim with your credit. I will link Blueberry’s Shop & Hop location, including the cam sims, and the main store below because I know that it can be VERY hard to get into the Blueberry sims during major events. I wish you the best of luck getting in on the last day today.

Fashion Forward

Snapshot_022

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”

Gianni Versace

Hello again my fab free fam!

How do you decide what to wear?  Do you try to fit in and wear things that other people wear, or approve of, or do you do your own thing?  Do you dress according to mood?  Or maybe you have a system that helps you decide?

Me, I’ve always done my own thing, both in sl and rl.  It hasn’t always been the easiest to deal with (rl!) but I don’t have the ability to be anything but myself.  I’m very VERY bad at faking it.  What you see is what you get folks!  Now, in sl, we have a LOT more fashion choices than in rl.  I mean gosh I could NEVER fit all my sl clothing into my rl closet!  Nor would it all look as stunning on me as it does on my lovely sl avatar.  However, my choices are the same.  As I’ve said before, I feel like a sort of bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde), while I was a tomboy most of my life and still mostly am, there is that part of me that lonnnnggggssssss to be girly but isn’t quite sure how to do it!  lol  I lost my mom at an early age and had no other female role models, so I became sort of a guys girl.   Many of my closest rl friends are guys and I find them easier to hang with than other girls, for the most part.  I’m not sure I ever properly learned how to “girl”.  lol  But I digress!  (I go off on side tangents, sorry  lol) My choices in both worlds reflect the bohemian, artsy, PINK-ishness, quirky soul that I am.  I don’t care if its in style, if I love it, I wear it.  Also unicorns.  anything & everything with unicorns.

Respond in comments and tell me what fashion inspires in you and what you love to choose!

As you can see, today I have chosen an adorable complete outfit from Bad Rabbit.  It was a free gift with no group required.  This outfit comes with everything you see here, dress and matching boots.  It has a HUD that gives 5 texture choices for the dress and five matching choices for the boots.  There was a pink choice for it but I chose blue cause I don’t want y’all to get crazy at me!  lol!

The dress comes in:

  • Tonic – Minimizer, Fine, Curvy
  • Star
  • Hourglass
  • Signature
  • Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • Kupra – Low, Original, Bimbo
  • Ebpdy – Classic, Curvy
  • Belleza – Isis, Freya
  • Altamura

The boots come in:

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

Since this got to be a rather long-ish post (!!), I shall wrap up here and see you next time lovelies, when I show you a great look for a casual night out!

Cheers to us saving the world, one outfit at a time,

❤ Arielle
