Magnifique!

Je t'aimeBonjour Mon Cheri!

I hope this blog finds all you lovely blossoms doing well on this very chilly Sunday (where I am anyhow, windy and in the 20’s brrrrrr!)  With Valentine’s less than a month away, I’m beginning to think romantical thoughts.  The new group gift from no.match (group is 50L to join!) put me positively over the edge with romantical FRENCH thoughts!  It’s a lovely Parisian style bob (aka French Bob) which seems vintage but is always in style.  It symbolizes a woman who is independent, progressive and spirited!  I bet you didn’t even know that this french hairstyle was inspired by Joan of Arc!  The website V is for Vintage states; “Celebrity hairdresser Antoine referenced the French heroine when creating his new bobbed hairstyle. It is introduced into his Paris salon around 1909 and creates a new fashion fad. ”  It states too that in the 21st century, the bob still exudes “retro, chic, edgy, vintage, arty” vibes.  So… you can’t go wrong!

I paired it up with this very chic set from Shanti which is a new fab free gift that you can grab just by putting your fab free tag on.  The shop also carries 6 other colored sets which are currently on promo for 99L!  While I don’t have a history to share with you regarding the shorts/blazer outfit, I’ve seen this style in numerous shops lately and really love them.  Dressy and casual all wrapped into one!

These outfits come in:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Curvy
  • Fine

Au Revoir beautiful fabbies!

Weirdly Cute!

collage

Hey fab fam!

So, here I am back with you today to share a bit of the cute and trendy mixed in with a tad of weird (but good artsy weird.  I personally *love* weird!).  That *almost* sums up me, except I’m a lot more of the weird.  😉  Embrace your weird, folks, it can get you through a lot of tight spots!  😀

This cute top and shorts are two separate group gifts from BDR (Beautiful Dirty Rich).  The group is free to join and they have so many cute group gifts.  Not to mention their clothing line is adorbs!  The top comes with a HUD of six textures, to suit your every mood and the shorts come with a HUD that has two textures.  Sizes are as follows (Both tee and shorts):

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Classic
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya (Bigger)
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine

I have always loved parasols… and I came across this one from Rotten Toe.  It is only 50L on market and comes with a holding pose.  The Broken Dolls Umbrella comes in 7 styles, you get them all for your 50L to mix and match any way you see fit with your wardrobe.  I love the oddball quirkiness and style of it.

Stay weird folks but don’t drink the kool aid!

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

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!!!

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

blog 010821_004

Hey adorable faboos!

Last night I had a dream I was wearing a beautiful magenta purple gown with lovely details on the bodice.  As I stepped out of my carriage I noticed I wore my hair up and it was adorned with oh so sweet yellow daisies. It was magical!  I knew my true love was waiting for me and as I crossed the brick walkway to find him, I woke up.  Alas.

Ohhh wait.  That wasn’t a dream!  It was sl!  But the rest of it was real!  The gown, the flowers, the carriage!  Let me tell you about the gown, as that’s what I am here to share.

I found this gown at Designer Showcase (open until Jan 25th).  It is a VIP group gift (group is free to join!) from Tori Stylez.  So this gown is absolutely free!  It comes in these sizes:

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

Also, if you aren’t a fan of purple, it comes with a HUD that has 16 colors which include 4 bonus colors (so, 12 plus the 4 bonus).  All of which are gorgeous so you can use this dress for any occasion, just change up the color to suit the day!

Until next time, stay fabulous!!!

Grotesque

Grotesque

Much like the macabre, though a little less romantic, grotesques have been part of art and architecture for centuries. It’s a theme I’ve always romanticized myself, that concept of finding beauty in that which would otherwise be called ugly. Now, before I get too melancholy in my musings I’ve got some pretties to share with you, one of which is this face tattoo by Nar Mattaru that reads “Grotesque” under my right eye. Alongside my finds at Nar Mattaru, I picked up some group gifts from rotten, and torment via Harajuku. Keep reading and I’ll give you all the what and how of things.

Nar Mattaru

Nar Mattaru has a handful of 10 linden offers in the same spot as their group gifts. These 10 linden finds do not require a group tag to purchase. I picked up the face tattoo that says “Grotesque” under the right eye, and has an almost cute little fly under the left eye. The tattoo comes in BOM layers, and an Omega applier with fresh, normal, and faded options.

Also at Nar Mattaru is this smudgy black eye makeup. This eye shadow look is called the “Effortless Smoky Eye” it too is just 10 linden. The grunge-rock princess part of my personality just couldn’t pass this one up. This eye-makeup comes in a BOM layer, and an Omega applier.

rotten

I am kind of in love with this lip gloss from rotten. It’s their current group gift, and the group is free to join. I love when I come across amazing makeup finds. Makeup is my favorite way to customize my look without changing my skin. This free lippie set by rotten includes 6 color choices, each with 4 style/opacity variations. In the package you’ll get BOM layers only. Technically these lip colors were made to be worn on Genus heads, but I think they look fantastic on my Catwa head.

torment

If you head over to the Harajuku event you can pick up these gorgeous earrings for free from torment. They are waiting at the torment booth at the Harajuku event. You will need to be wearing the torment group tag. The torment group is free to join. Then while wearing your torment group tag, click the “gift” sign at torment’s spot at Harajuku. These lovelies come in a black/gold version (shown) and a silver/gold version.

Foxy November

Thankful for November

When the temperature is perfect, the sun is shining, and the air is crisp and cool I can’t resist the allure of spending some time outdoors. It’s good for the psyche. Speaking of goodness, it doesn’t hurt to look good while you’re taking a moment to feel good. Pink Cream Pie and Demicorn have lovely new group gifts out, and I can’t help but feel extra cute wearing them.

Pink Cream Pie 

My foxy top is the November group gift at Pink Cream Pie. This top really couldn’t be any cuter. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 12 adorable fox patterns to choose from as well as 12 solid fall color choices. The Pink Cream Pie group has a join fee of 314 linden. There are quite a few previous group gifts still available, as well as lucky letter boards for group members.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

Demicorn

This gorgeous autumn orange shade is from one of the “Turkey” lip color sets. I also got lucky and scored one of the new Lucky Letter board prizes. This manicure is from the “Morning After” nail set 3. Demicorn’s store group has a join fee of 100 linden. There are also several previous group gifts available and 6 group only Lucky boards.
