Matching Support for Ukraine

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

Ladies and Gentleman…. Please Welcome Sir Paul Mc…..

sir paul

Hey gang,

I have to tell you about the exciting time I had the other night.  I was asked to introduce at an event but little did I know that I would be introducing Sir Paul!  (McCartney!)  Myyyyylanta I was flustered but I did my best and he came out on stage and as I was stepping away he grabbed my hand and asked me to sing Silly Love Songs with him.  Well, I love that song and I had a mad crush on him when I was young so startled and nervous as I was I stayed and it was sooo much fun!  I’m so glad I have a photo capturing the evening, this was the moment he grabbed my hand to stop me from walking away!  Oh swooon!

Well, it’s a nice fantasy!  My dream when I was young was to grow up and have that Paul and Linda relationship, where you are *so* in love and travel around the world making music together!  sigh….. (That didn’t happen, natch!)  It would have been my dream life!

Today I am here to tell you about a super fun shop I found called Mesh County!  That is where I found Paul (for only 35L!), but they have all sorts of mesh people and things, for great prices (If you are a Star Wars, Marvel or a Freddie Mercury fan, I have a feeling you will be *extra* pleased with what you can find there!  wink wink!).  I found some awesome people and characters for photos and heck if you even want to decorate with them, that works too!  Perhaps I will find Paul a special place at home or at the Fab Free Headquarters!  *giggle*

Oh and Halloween is coming, as you know and Mesh County has all sorts of fun spooky goodies for Halloween at great prices too!  Go check it out!  Lots of fun deals to be had!  Live *your* fantasy too perhaps?  I think they need to make a mesh of Sting for me.  😉

Happy shopping (and fantasizing!)!!!

❤ Arielle

Desert Rose by Sting

Hey gang!

I wanted to share more of the Una gacha fatpack group gifts (gosh that’s a mouthful huh!) with you!  Just some really lovely stuff and right up my alley so I couldn’t resist!  So to do these photos I headed out to the desert, which was really lovely by the way albeit hot.  But the sultry atmosphere, Arabic music and decor are enough to put you in that perfect mood, well for me anyway, I have an obsession with Moroccan-ish decor and clothing.  I mean honestly, half of what I created for my store was these sort of exotic outfits and fabrics, they are just so beautiful.

Since I have spent so many years creating these, I am especially fond of other creators who do the same (with the exception of one, who shall remain nameless.), and they inspire me to create more, if I could only find the time!  But I digress!  I know you are waiting to hear about these lovely outfits and so now, without further ado….

The above outfit comes from the Vidhi fatpack, absolutely stunning set.  You get these as a free group gift and that group is free to join!  I haven’t even finished rummaging through all the fatpacks I brought home from them, they are sitting on my wardrobe floor.  Both of these sets are made to fit Maitreya only.  Below is the second set I am sharing with you and that is called the Iddun gacha fatpack.

Run over to Una and scoop up this collection of fatpacks, I guarantee that you will fall in love with them as I have!
