Just a Yummy Little Dessert

cupcake_002

Hey fab folks!

I wanted to call this post Princess of Pastries but a cupcake is not technically a pastry.  I guess its just a yummy little dessert?  Whatever they are, they are absolutely wonderful!  In fact, when my birthday rolls around (approx 5 months and 3 days from now…) feel free to skip the cake and just bring me oodles of cupcakes (why did I almost write mushrooms?  LOL).  When you are as elderly as I am, you get to make requests such as that.  😉

So, multiple goodies for you tonight gang!  First off this adorbs shirt from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. which is a free Stay at Home gift (no group required just go and grab!  Good ol’ g&g!  We should make that a thing.  well, it is a thing, but we should make it an official fab free thing.  I’ll have to check with the boss lady on that.  😉 ) and since I am probably the princess of cupcakes, I found it quite appropriate for this post.  It comes in :

  • Classic
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • EBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

So, basically, it fits just about everyone!  Now onto that tower of cupcakes!  It sure looks yummy!!

That is a Life is Sweet and So are You hunt gift from Reckless Angel.  This hunt starts tomorrow (March 6!) and runs until March 31.  It is a 1L hunt, but each designer has the option of a 25L exclusive item.  This cupcake tower is a 1L prize.  It’s sitting atop my table (from Mirage Treasure Co.), the table is not part of the tower.  Just fyi.  lol

On that sweet note, I bid you bon appetit!  It’s the weekend.  Go enjoy some cupcakes to celebrate!

No Holds Barred Free!

spring air_012

Hello there fab fam!

Ahhh, its a sunny (but very cold! 26F with a wind chill of 15F.  its very windy) March morning! (I suppose it is keeping true to the coming in like a lion part, eh!  Can’t wait for the lamb part!!) I’m getting really antsy for spring y’all.  I’ve already started re-potting and cutting back some of my houseplants (and using some of those cuttings to start new little plants)… I know I am jumping the gun a bit, but I’ve been dying to start for the season and I have terrible self control (part of the reason my inventory is way too big  lol) and so finally just jumped on it!

I’m looking at this photo I did and I’m cold looking at it.  I bet in second life it stays a balmy 70F.  😉  Oh what I wouldn’t give….  alas.

But I digress!  I didn’t come here to chat about the weather with y’all, I came to tell you that I got this stunning outfit for FREE.  Yup, absolutely, totally no holds barred FREE!  Where you ask?  Well The Free Dove, of course!  This sexy little outfit comes from Nandi Style and these really cute (again with the celestial theme, you see that?  lol) moon earrings come from Glint.  Both at The Free Dove.

The dress comes in:

  • Maitreya
  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique

It also comes with a HUD to change the button on the skirt.  😉

Stay warm gang!  May the cold wind be ever at your back

Reach for the Stars

spring air_020

I felt your eyes upon me and a stirring in my Soul
I watched the current rise and tide turn for another shore…
A river finds it’s ocean, the light brings darkness to its knees
All that we’ve forgotten and all that we were meant to be…
We are like stars, stars in the sky
The darker this night, the brighter we will shine.

Stars – David Newman

Hey Fab Fam!

A little bit of lyrics from one of my favorite songs.  I’ve been in a funk the last week or so, though I am such an introvert, the pandemic is starting to affect me as well.  It’s a tough feeling to explain, like everything, even things I love to do, right now they all just feel like… meh.  You know?  So many friends I talk to are also feeling this way.  Picture dementors closing in, like there is nothing happy in the world, that’s the feeling.  Perhaps I just need a big old pile of chocolate.  (not like I need an excuse for that  lol)  But since I am trying to be good and *not* eat a pile of chocolate, I try to focus on some positive music, songs that just envelop me in love like a big hug, and of course…. keep reaching for the stars!

So for anyone else who is feeling this way, lets all just close in for a big virtual group hug!  Virtual group hug=no covid so we can have as many as we want and need.  Come on, scooch in… don’t be shy… everyone gather round, ok, ready!  BIG GROUP HUG annnnnnnnd SQUEEZE!!!!!!  Ahhhhh doesn’t that feel better?  You are not alone!  Yeah I need to remember this too.

So today gang, as I reach for those stars (Thanks to Fluffy Stuff for providing us with little pastel twinkly stars for our in world), I’m looking fashionable in this very pretty free group gift from Look at Me.  Group is free to join as well which makes this top and pants absolutely free!  This outfit comes in:

  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Keep reaching for those stars fab fam, if we collect enough we can create brighter days!

Sunshine and Seashells

Snapshot_036

Hey fab fam!

Oh boy!  Few things get me as excited as the thought of sunnier, warmer weather, so this new Fab Free gift from MOoH! has got me super excited!  I even headed off to the beach for a bit of fantasy time and dreaming I was on vacay!  Ahhhhh, the sight, sound and smells of the ocean.  Bliss!  Not to mention how super adorbs this bikini is, oh my gosh!!!!!

It not only comes in the pattern I am wearing (duh.  lol) plus it has a HUD with a total of ten ultra cute and cheery patterns!  I didn’t know *which* to pick!  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Why wait until summer when you can enjoy the beach in world *right now* and wearing this cute “kini!  Covid be damned!  We can take our vacations anyway!  Ha!  and with MOoH!‘s help, we are gonna look hella cute while doing it!

That’s not all!  See the awesome shell necklace?  That’s a group gift from ANTAYA(Group is only 50L to join and they have a wall of gorgeous group gifts!  Including one of my favorites that I previously blogged here.)  It too comes with a HUD so you can match it right up, choosing from 6 shell colors and three chain colors!  As I like to say, you can’t beat that with a stick!!  😀

Until next time fabbies!

Stay sunny!

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

Walking on Air!

ldr_009

Hey fab fam!

I’ve been thinking (and that is always dangerous!), wouldn’t it be odd (and sometimes disconcerting…and sometimes really cool!) if we could do the things we can do in second life, in real life?  Like… change your hair, your face, your body…on a whim!  Wicked cool.  Possibly even wickeder cooler… teleporting!  With my partner and best friend on the opposite side of the rl planet, that is something we both wish for!  I know some people would like the ability to fly.  I am not one of those people.  lol  This chickie is chicken and does NOT fancy heights!

Now, on the flip side of all that comes the disconcerting….

One time when I was a noob I came home and everything was gone, my house, all my belongings, everything.  It would not be fun to lose everything you own, plus your house in real life!  You get home and OMG where’s my house???  It was here when I left!  OK, so another scenario… you get dressed, go out and you can see your clothes but no one else can.  !!!!!!  You turn into a red cloud!  You walk off a platform and fall down through the sky.  Or you live on a platform in the sky and sometimes people fly by.  Or now with mesh bodies, other people see you as a weird mix of body parts floating around and clothes floating around.  Awkward!!!  One last one…. imagine going to the store in rl and having to wait for everything to rez cause all you see is grey!  That’s one issue I’m glad not to have!  lol

In second life we can be anything we want to, go anyplace we want to (mostly!), it can be like a waking dream.  Just like real life, it can get expensive!  Thank goodness for the fab free blog where you can find amazing free and low priced goodies for your second life!  On that note… here’s the next one for you!

My outfit today is a super cute group gift from Loud Rebel Design.  Their group is free to join.  I felt so cute wearing it that it had me walking on air!  Or very nearly walking on air.  There are several trends right now I am finding super cute and jumpsuits is one of them.   So thanks to LRD for this group gift!

This jumpsuit fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Stay safe and reach for the stars fab fam!

Oh Where Oh Where has Cupid Gone?

blasphemic_006

Hey fab gang!

I’ve been all over the grid recently helping to look for cupid in the Where’s Cupid Hunt. This is a 1L hunt and runs until Feb 14. While I didn’t actually *find* cupid (there’s still time!), I did find some awesome hunt gifts and have a sneak peek at three of them for you!

Too Sassy for You!

Blasphemic has this cute top in my photo above waiting for you in the hunt.  The saying on the shirt “Too Sassy for you!” resonated with me, brat that I am.  It’s got a pattern of open rips in the back and you can pair it nicely with jeans, short, skirt, anything.  I paired it with these jeans and ready to go! It comes in one size, fitted mesh and I’m wearing it over Maitreya in the picture.  I had no issues.

Never Stop Dreaming

indig_003

This absolutely adorable dress is made by Tazz for Indigenous.  It comes with a HUD giving you a choice of ten gorgeous colors that really pop!  It is definitely a dreamworthy dress!

The dress comes in:

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Lastly but Definitely not Least!

ari pari_005

Lastly I have for you, two hunt prizes.  First this adorable outfit from Ari-Pari, love the springtime colors!  It comes with a HUD that gives you six texture/color choices for each of the top and bottom.

It comes in

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

The cute Valentine-y backdrop is also a hunt prize, it’s from NinaX.  It’s low prim and very pretty.

Love is in the Air

Love is in the air

G’day fab fam!

Love is in the air, my friends!  What with so many hunts revolving around love and Valentine’s and cupids!  But in February, that is to be expected!  Of course we all know what hunts mean… free or nearly free goodies!  Lots of them!  For instance, I found this adorable outfit in the Love Hunt (1L hunt ends 2.28) from Applique’ Chic.  It comes with a HUD for the skirt which includes 6 really pretty color choices.  I had a difficult time deciding!

Both top and skirt come in these sizes:

  • Ocacin
  • Volumptuous
  • Freya
  • HourGlass
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Now, I know from experience that we rarely give ourselves enough love.  You are the only one who has always been with you no matter what, and you are *amazing* whether you realize it or not!  So I have an assignment for y’all tonight… Go love yourself, BIG TIME!  You know what you need and what makes you happy, so go do that!  And in case no one has told you today fab fam, I love you and YOU matter!
