Bad to the Bone

spring_009

Hey gang!

Easter time and spring conjure up all sorts of bunny-ness.  But I feel we tend to overlook the bad bunnies of the world.  Those cute, but very bad bunnies deserve their time in the spotlight as well, and so I bring to you a free goodie straight from The Free Dove, courtesy of Zoom.  This cute cropped Bad Bunny sweater is so cute and stylish, I’ve paired it with pants, but I bet it would be super cute with just about anything.  Skirt, shorts, even a sexy pair of undies (bad bunny says rawr!).  Speaking of these pants, they are *another* freebie, this time courtesy of Eternity via Ajuda Brazil.  Gone are the days, back in my noob time (eons ago!  lol) when freebies, well, you knew they were freebies.  They *looked* like freebies.  Nowadays, the freebies rival and sometimes surpass the clothes you shell out your lindens for!  So in sl, you can’t always say “you get what you pay for!” as it’s just not always the case!  So many designers are generous and they share some amazing work in their giveaways!  Props to them!  (and I never say props.  lol)

Now for the practical part of our program.  The shirt fits:

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

and the pants fit:

  • Classic
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

They also come with a 20 color HUD so these pants can match everything in your sl closet.  Yowza!

I’ve got soooooo much stuff for you gang!  So I’ll wrap this up here so I can go work on more!  Yay!

Alice and the White Duckie

Wonderland

Sometimes you just are lucky enough to wander into a sort of wonderland, with bunnies and duckies (yes I said duckies! squee!) wearing clothes and discussing literature, with giant books that think they are clocks… and sometimes you are just lucky enough to find a shirt with a unicorn on it that also has the word lucky!  This week I was lucky enough to come across Both these things (and the first one was found while wearing the second one.  woah!)  Dizzy yet?  😉

This cute full outfit comes to us from Alias!  It is a free group gift and the group is free to join.  It comes with top, shorts, shoes and legwarmers.  *Plus* a cute unicorn headband and a plush unicorn that is soooo sweet.   Soooo freaking cute!

The Saga Continues!

spring_024

The saga continues….

Disguised by day as a business woman, she blends into her surroundings without a second thought. Her carefully matched purse carries not the usual sundries of a women’s purse, but far more lethal items. When she takes out her compact to powder her nose, no one is the wiser that it is, in reality, a digital camera. You think she is focused on the mirror. She is really watching you.

A woman like no other, perhaps. She is anything but ordinary. Her infamous pink gun lies tucked safely in her purse.  Where will her travels take her next?

Hey gang!

As you can see our mysterious “Bond-Style” girl popped up again.  I’ve no idea whats in store for her!

This glam look comes to us from one of my favorite designers Hilly Haalan.  It’s is a Women’s Day group gift and is free.  The group is free to join.  It is a full outfit, shoes and purse included, so throw it on and you are ready to go!  The hair is by Sintiklia and that is a free group gift.  The group is free to join and that means this entire look is yours for (wait for it)… free!

The outfit comes in:

  • Classic M
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Tonic – Curvy and Fine

Until next time!

Dreamgirl

ths_012

Hey gang!

Have you made it to the Wash’s *final* Cart sale?  I’m so sad it is ending after so many years, but grateful for all the deals and the designers I have discovered through it.  One of my deals this time is this oh so cute outfit from 1 Hundred.  It was only 50L and it comes in a range of cute colors.  Of course I picked pink.  😀  It comes with the top and these cute short shorts.  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

I may actually run back and grab a few more colors!  But it is so tempting to spend all my money there, however!  Just like real life, I have to save up for the rent so, if I *do* go back, I’ll try not to lose my head.  lol

This is all my pinkishness for a Friday night!

Happy weekend y’all!

Shopping from Home: SL Style!

tea_002

Hey gang!

As fun as it is to run ourselves ragged shopping like lunatics in world, there is a certain satisfaction in staying in the comfort and seclusion of your cozy sl home and scooping up bahgains anyway.  I’ve brought a handful of such goodies here to show you today.  (marketplace show n tell time kiddies!  woot!)  From clothing, to props to decor, you can find it all, and find it I did!  I spent a whopping (are you ready?) 134L and I got a dress, shoes, teacups with multiple poses and wall decor.

Lets begin with the dress.  I got this soooooper cute dress for only 65L from DejaVu Designs.  It comes with a HUD that has 40 colors and comes in these sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Classic

These cute tiptoe sneakers, which I Lurrrrvvveee, come from ROC which has so many cute affordable shoes, I barely know where to begin (I have my eye on another cute pair I think I will scoop up next time and blog).  I got these for 49L, they come with a HUD that gives you 25 color choices so your cute sneakers will *always* match, and they fit:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Belleza

Now the little teacups with poses come from LISP Bazaar (I love their stuff!), they cost 10L and come with a choice of 6 really cute poses and you have your choice of steaming or not steaming.  I wanted my tea to be hot cause it’s been chilly, so I chose steaming.

Last but not least, see those totally adorbs string lights hanging on the wall behind me?  Those are from The Black Forest and they cost me 10L.  They are really sweet in person, especially considering the price.  1 prim for each “curtain”.

Til next time, I hope you are all enjoying the FabFree hunt!!

Cozily yours,

❤ Arielle

Jewels of the Emerald Isle

ec

Lying in the long grass
Close beside her
Giving her the name
Of the one the moon loves
This will be the day she
Will remember
When she knew his heart was
Loving in the long grass
Close beside her
Whispering of love

Celebrating March!

bubble_017

Hey gang!

March is just *full* of all sorts of celebrations.  St Patrick’s Day, Women’s Day, Springing forward and getting more sunlight (in the US anyway), sometimes Easter…the start of Spring!!  but I bet you didn’t know that there are a *plethora* of things to celebrate in March?  Here’s just a sampling for you:

  1. March 1 – Peanut Butter Lovers Day, Pig Day! and world compliment day.  This is the day you share some peanut butter with your favorite pig and say nice things about our planet.  😉
  2. March 2- Old stuff day.  I think they made this one for me.  I’m an old stuff.  lol
  3. March 3 – This one made me stop and go “huh?” If pets had thumbs day.  Who thinks of this stuff and who decides to make it an official day?  LOL  Someone said gee it would be nice if our pets had thumbs and someone else replied, yeah!  we should make that a day.  okayyyy
  4. March 5 – Cheese doodle day!  Yay!
  5. March 6 – All about the food today, its Oreo cookie day (double stuf I hope.  Though there isnt as much stuf as there used to be.  sigh) and frozen food day.
  6. March 18 – This is my day.  Awkward moments day!  Perhaps though since it is the day after St Pattys, all those extra awkward moments come from folks who are still drunk from the night before, or really really hungover and out of it.
  7. March 20 – Busy day this one.  International day of Happiness, Corndog day (woohoo!), kick butts day aaaaaand ravioli day!  So its a happy happy day with corn dogs for lunch, ravs for dinner and a whole lot of butt kicking in between!  Can’t beat that with a stick!  (oh wait, that day comes later in the month.  you’ll see.  😉  )
  8. March 21 – Crunchy Taco Day!  Viva Le Taco!
  9. March 22 – I celebrate this every day… Goof off Day
  10. March 23 – This *has* to be my favorite.  Puppy day!!!!  OMGGGGG  I adore puppies, and maybe for puppy day, Jian will *finally* make me the cute shih tzu puppies I have been requesting for over four years since I lost my sweet Tara and can’t find a comparable black and white shih tzu companion pup anywhere in sl!
  11. March 27 – Joe day!  Hats off to all the wonderful guys named Joe!  and hats back on to those Joe’s who are *not* being wonderful.  This is also Quentin Tarantino’s birthday.  Maybe his parent’s shoulda’ named him Joe.  Joe Tarantino.
  12. March 28 – Happy Birthday to Lady Gaga!  Who shares her special day with something on a stick day and the ever popular respect your cat day.  😉

Some of these give me ideas for some blog posts.  lol  But I should get to the matter at hand, I’m celebrating two holidays and an event in my photo today.  Obviously one is St Patty’s day, which I am celebrating with yet another faboo sneak peek of the Fab Free St Patty’s Day Hunt, courtesy of Fantasy Illuminations (Previously Fantasy China/Between the Stars), with the gorgeous sparkly wall decor she made!  I am also celebrating International Women’s Day courtesy of AMUI who made this cute inspiring top, which is free at her store, no group needed!  This shirt comes in:

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody classic & curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Signature Alice
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Star
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

Remember, The Fab Free Hunt starts the 16th and runs to the 20th.  All the items are under 5L so it’s gonna be a blast!  You can find all the information here!  So many great designers!  So exciting!!

Now I think that’s enough babbling for me for one morning.  😉  I’ll be back soon with more goodies!!

Keep celebrating!
