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!

Nope! The Christmas Tree Ain’t Going Down Yet!

Nope! The Christmas Tree Ain't Going Down Yet!I am one of those people who keeps their Christmas decorations out at least another month after Christmas has passed. Yes, one of those people. I just can’t accept that the holiday fun is over! Well, let’s pretend it’s not over yet, as I have several free and 1 L wonderful presents to share with you today! Let’s open up those gifts!

Be Unique

EscalateD is known for their unique hairstyles! They are so creative and offer us so many wonderful gifts. EscalateD currently has a 500L store credit gift available at their store. The free store credit is available for everyone until January 24th, and this a gift that was left-over from the Christmas season. You just need to click the free store credit board in front of the group lounge in the middle of the store. I am fashioning one of EscalateD‘s beautiful hairstyles, Genova, which you could purchase with your free credit (or any other hairstyle of your choice in the store). I paired this hairstyle with one of their latest VIP group gifts, which is a Xmas hair colour hud. EscalateD VIP is 99L to join and it gives you access to many group gifts and lucky and mini-mania boards.

Another Winter Sweater…Dress

This lovely sweater dress is perfect for wearing indoors (which I have a feeling you are doing a lot of this winter), or you could wear some leggings under it if you dare to venture outside. This lovely dress comes in several colours which you can change via a hud and it only costs 1 Linden. This is a hunt prize at Ari Pari for the Let It Snow Hunt. The hint is, “How much is that snowman in the window?!”. The hunt ends on January 31st.

Free Group Join at LuluB!

I am wearing the Rainbow Bae lipgloss, which is a free group gift at LuluB. The group is currently free to join. Just check the group notices to grab these cute lip glosses in a few different shades. The LuluB group is currently free to join, and they also have a 500L store credit gift to grab while you are there.

An Làr has a tonne of poses out for free at their Marketplace store! Use this link to find all their free poses and this link to find the specific pose I am showing off today.

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

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!!!

Ocean Eyes

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!

Music of the soul

Fabfree Post: Music of the soul

Sing me a song

It’s been awhile Fabsters, I took a much-needed break from everything to revamp my creative juices again. It was a heck of a year for all of us and I didn’t realize how much I’ve been letting my artistic side slip until Christmas hit and I found myself completely burnt out. So I’m back after a little vaca from my sl duties and I now I’m back to burning brighter than before!

So thank you lovely Fabulous Readers for not leaving me in the dust and for those of you who sent loving words to me, telling me I’m missed know it meant a lot. xoxo You are all a part of my extended family and when I share my life and pictures know you are seeing me in them. ❤ you all!

 

So on to the Group Gift!

Some of you know I’m a huge fan of Ariskea and their latest free group gift is one of my new favorites! This adorable little gold deer is featured on a pile of fluffy white snow, (something my area is missing currently) along with some flakes that shine, and how can you forget the silent night song? The music box is by far one of the smallest free gifts I have picked up that has a long-standing impact on my heart.

I hope you have time to swing by Ariskea to snag their group (Fee is L$150) to get this free group gift and older ones at their shop now!

Coming Soon to Fab Free

I have more beautiful gowns to show off, Fab Free. I hope you enjoy wearing fancy attire as much as I do because you are in for a real treat with this great offer!

20 fatpacks! As group gifts!

Scandalize has a whole wall out of new group gifts, which are meant to be holiday gifts. They are on the wall in front of the Christmas tree in the centre of the store.  On the wall, you can get over 20 fatpacks as group gifts. One of my favourites from these wonderful gifts is the Azahara set. This fatpack includes a gown, with satin and glitter textures, a metal belt, and a fur stola. Several colour change huds are included which allow you to change the texture of the gown, stola, the bow at the back, and the metals of the belt. What a wonderful gift! If gowns aren’t your thing, there are a lot of other casual and sexy clothes on offer too! These 20 group gifts are only out for a limited time, so go over to Scandalize quickly and pick them up while you still can!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Legacy
  • Isis

The Scandalize group costs 100L to join, but it is well worth the join fee. As you will see when you visit the store, there are 4 walls of group gifts and a lucky letter wall. You can’t go wrong with Scandalize when it comes to finding high quality and beautiful group gifts.

Enjoy, Fab Free!
