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!

Sunset Selfies

Sunset SelfiesHello again lovely fabbies!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, where ever you may be!  I’m dreaming of warmer days here, so I took a virtual trip to a place in the grid that I love… Maui!  And because I got lucky before I left, I had this gorgeous ensemble to wear.  Now I don’t mean getting lucky in the way you are thinking (tsk tsk!), I’m talking about popping into Kamiri and hitting up her lucky chairs, which is where I grabbed my Maui outfit!  Some of the chairs you don’t need a group, but some you do, but that’s no biggie!  Cause her group is free to join!  She also has group gifts posted near the chairs so if you do join the group, you can scoop those babies up as well!

This dress comes in:

  • Belleza
  • Classic
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

It also has a HUD with two colored textures to choose from.

You can also get this hair for free from Sintiklia.  You don’t need a group just pop by the store and click the vendor.  She has a crazy amount of group gifts too and again, this group is free to join!  You can’t beat that with a stick!  😀

Until next time gang, stay toasty!

Here Comes the Sun

Here Comes the Sun

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right
-George Harrison

Hey Fabulouso Folks!

These are crazy days we are living in lately.  Sometimes it feels like it may never end.  In his Strength to Love speech in 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. said “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.”  And Vern P. Stanfill (a missionary, who oddly enough shares my birthday!  lol) said “There is no darkness so dense, so menacing, or so difficult that it cannot be overcome by light.

Like the sun in my photo, even though we cannot see it overnight, it’s life-giving light returns to us every single day, driving out the darkness of night.  So even though these are dark and dangerous times (thanks Dumbledore!), the light will return.  As with the sun, just because we cannot see it at the moment, does not mean it is gone, or not there, it will always return.  So hang in there my friends and in the meantime, be the light for someone else in all this darkness.

In the midst of all these real life struggles, we are so blessed to have sl and the goodies that creators have generously shared with us.  The adorable outfit I am wearing today is a New Years gift from Legendaire.  It is a full outfit, shoes included and no group is needed.  Making this absolutely free.  There are a total of 4 new years gifts for the taking, just look for the large 2021 outside the store!

This outfit comes in:
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
The boots come in:
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
This outfit comes with a total of three HUDS:
  • Top – 20 textures
  • Skirt – 10 textures
  • Boots – 10 Combinations

In light and love,

❤ Arielle

Feeling Cute

blog 010921_007

Hello again Fabbies!

You know those days when if you could just feel *cute*, then everything would be just hunky dory?  Like, you’re not in the mood to exert the energy to strive for stunning or drop dead gorgeous, but if you can still be cute, well that’s just fine!  Cute is always a good thing.

That’s exactly how this dress from Seniha made me feel, just perfectly cute.  Perfectly cute and waiting (not so patiently!) for spring.  I found this dress at the Orsy Event, which goes until the end of the month.  It is a group gift for the event group, which is free to join and its made by Seniha.  It comes in three dark pink patterns, and it makes you feel hella cute!

Pair it up with this group gift hair from DP YumYum (group is free to join) and you are set to rock that cute look! 

The dress comes in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky
  • Petite

Better, warmer, sunnier days are coming my friends! We will all get there! In the meantime, stay safe and stay cute! 

Pups & Kitties!

Comfort Zone

blog 010821_008

Happy weekend fab free-ers!

Now, I don’t know about you but I’m a comfort girl, really, so every now and again I like to find something in sl that makes me feel relaxed *and* fashionable, all at the same time.  Especially on a Saturday night!  Take for instance this adorable outfit!  It is not only comfy (yes I can tell even though its virtual!  LOL), but its fashionable and I feel sooo cute in it.  But that’s not the best part.  You know what I’m gonna say, right?  The best part was that I got it free!  And you can too!

I picked up this cute outfit called Celine at DivaH Style.  It is a group gift and the group is free to join.  Its got the cute top and shorts as shown.  It also comes with sandals, which since I have my feet on the furniture, I am not wearing.  😉  Oh and let me mention that there is a wall full of group gifts all just waiting for you.  😀

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

Its also got two kitties cuddled together as the print and I couldn’t resist!

Until next time, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for fabulous!!!

Coming Soon to Fab Free
Hey, Fab Free! I like making new avatars/looks, and I made this one in the spirit of Billie Eyelish with the green and black hairsyle. Do you think it looks like her? It kinda succeeded but I think she ended up having her own unique look… this new avatar I created is super cute either way.

Let’s get down to the details which are a beautiful 1 L mesh body and this great free sweater!

Sweet’s Ruth Mesh Body

As many of you know, I have been working on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing. I recently made a few updates to the page so you may want to look at some of the new bodies I posted. I decided to show off a body from that list, which is one of Ruth mesh bodies. This one is Sweet’s Ruth. Isn’t the body gorgeous? It fits many Maitreya clothes and shoes, although you will need to use the alpha hud to make many of the clothes fit. To use the alpha version of the body, just open up the box included in the folder that has the alpha HUD! This body is BOM and works with all BOM skins and other products. The Sweet’s Ruth mesh body costs only 1 L on the marketplace.

Here are some more details about the body:

Fits: Maitreya clothes and feet (flat, mid, and high) for the most part, with the use of the alpha hud provided.
Omega/Bakes on Mesh (BOM)?  This body is BOM only.
Bento? Yes.
Other Notes: Includes mesh nails with a nail colour hud. There is no mesh head included with this body.

You may also want to be aware of the following known issues about the body that the creator makes a note of:

“- A small glitch can appear between neck and head
(usually on high ground)
– A small glitch can appear with feet and hands in extreme poses.
– Medium High feet often need an alpha to fit Maitreya Shoes (provided!)
– Older skins with painted on nails will not match mesh feet. Use a nailfix! (provided!)”

Just as a side note, I used the Ariel head from LOGO to create this avatar. The LOGO group is free to join and every month in 2021 they are going to sell an older head of every month to group members for only 300L. In order to use the head, you need the 3.1 version LOGO customization hud. I was pleased to hear about this sale and grabbed the Ariel head up for that low price. The head is BOM compatible. There is NO mesh head included with the Sweet’s Ruth body, so you will need to use another mesh head of your own with it or get one of the mesh heads listed on the Fab Free Mesh body and Head Listing to complete a mesh look. Alternatively, you can wear the Sweet’s Ruth body with a classic system head if you prefer.

Beatrix

Another item I am showcasing today is the Beatrix Sweater Dress, which you can grab at the zOOm Mainstore. I found this gift by using the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News group, and they have many gifts that were available for free during the Christmas train event this group ran over the holidays. Technically, the event ended around Christmas time, but a lot of designers still have their gifts out at their store. You can look at the gifts using this page, although some of them may not be available still. It’s worth a look though because I found that quite a few of the gifts are still out! I had my eye on this lovely sweater by zOOm on the list and to my delight, it was still available! Simply join the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MSGN) group for free and the sweater is yours. zOOm has 2 free MSGN gifts out at the moment so grab them while you’re there!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Thanks for reading, Fab Free! Have fun!

Today is a Good Day

Today is a Good Day

The photo says it all, today is a good day! Why, you may ask? (Ok maybe you didn’t quite ask but here’s the scoop anyway). Simply because I am so chuffed to become a part of the amazing Fab Free team. And humbled, and honored.

So of course I had to travel about and find some goodies to share and so I did!

I found this super sweet dress at Mely Melo of London, no group needed and it was only 1L. Really adorbs!

Sizes

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

Speaking of no group and 1L, that’s also what it cost me for the cute backdrop in the photo and I found that over at Delicatte Company.  Naturally all that shopping around got me a tad bit parched, thankfully I found a drink in a cute cup, which was a group gift (group is free to join) at Micamee. You get three cups in the gift and you can see another style on our blog here: Calling From the Land of Rainbows.

Until next time Happy New Year and stay safe chickadees!

Winter Prima Donna

Coming soon to Fab Free

There’s nothing I love more than an elegant gown and it looks even more majestic in the snow! I will admit, though, I would never wear such a beautiful dress out in the cold in real life but it does look splendid in SL.

A Holiday Hunt at Poet’s Heart

Poet’s Heart has a Holiday Hunt out at the moment, and it’s completely free! You are looking for the little green fairy hats hunt item (seen below in the vendor advertisement). The hunt ends on January 3rd, so you only have 2 days to collect these lovely gowns! There are 8 hunt prizes in total. I am currently wearing the Prima Donna Gown and all the gowns are sized for Maitreya bodies only.

Poet's Heart Holiday Hunt

Here are the hints to help you collect your free hunt gifts…

Hmm.. I wonder if Santa left something for me?

⚫ David Eddings wrote about me in the Elenium and the Tamuli

⚫ Within Temptation sings about this irish lass

⚫ I’m so cheap, yet not completely free

⚫ When a dress just ain’t enough…

⚫ Toss a coin to your witcher…

⚫ I might be a fan of Tobias Forge

⚫ Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”

 

Make sure you grab all the free group gifts at Poet’s Heart while you are there! The group is free to join. There are some beautiful elegant gowns and roleplay items out for all.

Update: I have discovered that there is also a free gift, separate from the hunt, at Poet’s Heart under the tree. Just click the present box that is on sale for 0L and then you have another freebie! Yay!

Thanks for reading, Fab Free!

Dreaming of More Christmas on Boxing Day

una_159 (2)
Hey, Fab Free! Are you still feeling Christmassy? I know I am, and I have more Christmas outfits than I know what to do
with. I will be showing you a lovely free Christmas dress, as well as a jewelry set you can pick up for only 1 Linden.

Dreaming of a white Christmas…

Even if you didn’t get the white Christmas you were dreaming of, Dreams has a wonderful Christmas dress out for you all. The Dreams VIP group is currently free to join. There are 2 free dresses out for women and a free Christmas sweater for men! Just look for the Christmas tree in the store and you will find the gifts there. Time to deck the halls on boxing day with these sweet finds! Dreams is normally a paid group, so jump in this group and grab all the gifts in the gift room for free!

The jewels…

This lovely jewelry set I have on is for M&M Style. I got it at the front of the store and it is part of the Fleur gift package. To get the gift, I needed to join the M&M Style group which only costs 1 Linden to join. Like many of M&M Style‘s outfits, it comes with shoes, an outfit (in this case, a jumpsuit), and jewelry. It is a full set and one of the reasons I love this designer’s clothes is because you get so many things wrapped in one box that match so well together. I posted a picture of the full outfit below so you can see what the jumpsuit and shoes look like in the package! You will also be able to grab a few more gifts by joining the group. There are lucky letter boards upstairs if you need even more freebies.

PIC FLEUR-A

Have a great Boxing Day, Fab Free!
