Straight From my Lips

Straight From my Lips

In case no one has told you today, you’re awesome.  I really love your hair, and you’re just like…totally fab.  The way you are getting stuff done, looking hot and making the world better is just…oof!  You got this!

Tuesday Motivation

I just thought I’d put a bit of motivation and positivity out into the world!  We often get bogged down in the not so fun stuff that life throws at us, and having someone be a cheerleader can help us remember who we really are!  Anyway, free stuff…right…. If you head over to the Orsy event, you’ll find a few free and 1L gifts lying around.  When you join the event group (which is free to join), head over to the stairs and up on the wall you’ll find this shiny dress by Brilliancia is free!  It comes in 8 different colours and the belt can be removed if you don’t fancy it on.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Alice

Don’t wait too long, or it will be gone!

Gardening, Bohemian Style

Boho Garden

I don’t know about y’all, but I am enjoying starting to get out in my garden.  The sunshine, the smell of the flowers, I love it!  Things are starting to grow and its getting closer to a time when I can just chill and sip some ice cold sweet tea (I’m a southern girl, doncha’ know).  Luckily I have this beautiful Bohemian Garden Shack to relax near my garden.  You can find it at this month’s Swank Event.  It is by Dreamland Designs, it is beautiful and comes with plenty of poses.

Now of course I’m not here without a freebie for y’all so I have this adorable boho style dress from Be Bold, it is a Fab Free Group Gift so you can wear your group tag and grab it.  The Fab Free group is of course free to join.  It comes with a HUD giving you four color choices and it fits Maitreya Lara.

Now I am about to grab my watering can and give these babies a drink, so I have to run!

Your favorite blonde gardening blogger,

❤ Arielle

I absolutely jumped at the chance to use this pose when I found it, being a photographer and all.  😉  It is from TyPoz, *and* it is a free group gift (they have some really cute poses at their shop!).  The group is only 20L to join, and the pose comes with the camera prop so you are good to go!  I will definitely be stalking their shop from now on.  😉

I’m wearing a hunt gift from Shanti while I go photographing all over the sim today.  This is a 1L prize for the Bunny Kisses & Easter Wishes Hunt, which runs to the end of the month and has a lot of very cute prizes, so you won’t want to miss them.   Shanti has several hunts going on and new items on the lucky boards (no group required), plus other freebies.  So well worth the trip.  This dress comes in:

  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Freya
  • Eve Slim & Pulpy
  • Altamura

More soon gang!  Hope it is beginning to feel like Spring in your corner of the world!

Licence to Style

bond _005

Don’t underestimate the blonde

008. License to style. That’s all they knew about her. Fashion mogul, heart breaker, pet rescuer and cupcake connoisseur.  Little did they know she was a cold blooded killer. The blonde with the pink gun (and pink private jet!!) had killed before, and she would do it again. They were about to find out the ugly truth.

She stood before them. As calm as if they were just having a casual chat. She guarded her heart well, and if she needed the gun, so be it. She turned as if she was about to walk away, then in an instant she drew her gun…

Ok so the pink gun sent me off into James Bond – Bond Girl/Air Force One (which is a great movie btw, and Harrison Ford is my kinda eye candy in those days!) sorta territory.  lol  That’s a free group gift from Birth, it comes with a HUD that has choices to color your gun, and well, I chose pink, natch!  Their group is free to join so fire away!  (ha ha pun intended!)  The dress, the very sexy dress which has an optional layer of freaking *sparkles* you can add called shine (which were hard to capture in the pic, but you NEED to see them in action!!!) is a free group gift from Hilly Haalan!  Also free to join by the way, and I must remind you all that she has an entire *room* of group gifts which are Ah-Maze-ing!!!  It comes in:

  • Altamura Sofia
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy

So what happens next in the saga?  And how did we get to this place?  On the pink plane, guns drawn… is the blonde really *bad* , or is she just drawn that way?  (sorry channeled some Jessica Rabbit for a moment!  LOL)  Stay tuned… there will be another chapter if y’all like!  🙂

Magic in the Night

fc_013

Hey fab fans!

One of my favorite things about blogging in second life is the ability to create a fantasy in a photo. Something that you can imagine has a story behind it. We can morph our avatars into just about anything, so really you are limited only by your imagination. I’m sort of an airy-fairy girl on the inside, so I had a lot of fun with this photo shoot. I built myself a little enchanted fairy forest (with some nifty goodies from Fantasy Illuminations). I also dug out my old fairy wings. They are animated/scripted and my faves.

This cute dress from Ari-Pari. It is a gift in the Life is Sweet and So are You Hunt.   This hunt runs until March 31. It is a 1L hunt, but each designer has the option of a 25L exclusive item. This cute dress is a 1L prize.  It comes in:

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

Stay tuned!  Next time I’ve got some Bond Girl mystique for you!  😀

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!
