Not All Who Wander are Lost

Not all who wander are lost...

Hey gang!

Felt the need to just get away from it all today, found myself in an enchanted forest with ruins.  I have a story about ruins.  A friend’s aunt and uncle traveled to Rome and came back with photos, of course, while showing them to my friends parents, the Uncle complained that the buildings were all run down and falling apart.  The aunt replied, “Oh honey, they are *ruins!*  They’re ruined!”

So here I am in the forest with the ruined ruins.  Donning yet another free group gift hair from Fabia (@ Energy Weekend Group, Free to join!).  I told you there was a wall full!  Wanted to show you one more before I lose them all in my messy inventory!

So now, in all my chattering, I’ve wandered too far and must find my way back once again.  Hope you have all had a splendid weekend!

Celebrating April!

3.28.21 wp_031

Hey Gang!

Its a new month and you know what that means!  It’s time to see what we celebrate in April (aside from Easter, of course) Let’s have a look-see….

Today, of course is April Fools’ Day, so watch out for those pranksters!  I used to be one of those pranksters but everyone knows me too well and they know I will be up to no good! So, no fun for me cause everyone is all waiting for me to pull a prank.  Alas.  Now, of course it’s not *only* April Fools Day (and they put April at the beginning of it, like every month has it’s own fools day and we need to distinguish.  the heck??), but also National Burrito Day and National One Cent Day.   I think Taco Bell should jump on this one and sell one cent burritos all day today.

Now for the rest of the month….

2. Good Friday, nice normal Holiday, also World Autism Day.

3. National Find a Rainbow Day (that’s a nice one!) and World Party Day.  Especially for those who went in search of said rainbow and actually found one!  When I was a kid, I always wanted to be able to stand in the rainbow colors so I would get on my bike and chase after the rainbow, trying to find the part where it met the earth (I didn’t care about the pot of gold.  Silly little me!), I wanted to bask in those colors up close!  I don’t need to tell you this story does not end in World Party Day for yours truly!

4. Happy Hoppy Easter!  And apparently, for the Easter Bunnies to celebrate, it is also National Carrot Day (who did that???).  I kid you not.  That’s not all.  It is also National Hug a News Person Day and National Tell a Lie Day.  Do we really need that last one?  And no, it is not an excuse to get together with family (wear a mask and stay safe folks!) and tell them all sorts of lies about your life.   Not a good holiday custom for anyone.

5. Now being the Trekkie I am, I know this is First Contact Day.  I was disappointed that it was not listed.  I guess that’s the Universe paying me back for how long it took me to understand why May 4th was Star Wars day.   Today is also, strangely enough…. National Flash Drive Day.  Why little bitty flash drives would get their own day is beyond me.  Maybe it doesn’t mean them at all, maybe it means we need to drive around in our cars and flash people!  Woohoo!  Happy National Flash Drive day!  *giggle*

6. Happy New Beer’s Eve!  Who knew that was a thing!  *Why* is it a thing?  Go on and read the 7th.

7. Happy National Beer Day (this is why).  Today is also No Housework Day (well if you are drinking beer all day to celebrate, I suppose that is understandable.).  It is also World Health Day, which I don’t think ties in with the beer thing very well.  You certainly can’t celebrate both.

9. National Name Yourself Day (that’s fun!), and also National Unicorn Day!  I need to start celebrating both of these! (I luurrrrveee Unicorns!)

10. National Hug Your Dog Day.  Hopefully people don’t need a holiday to give their dog hugs.  Mine always get a bazillion hugs every single day.  So much so that they get sick of me I think.

13.  National Be Kind to Lawyers Day.  Um, ok.

15. National High Five Day!  High five everyone you know!  and people you don’t!  Oh wait, the pandemic.  Substitute high fives for fist or elbow bumps and then get away from each other, pronto and wash.  That takes the fun out of that.  Thanks pandemic!  Sigh.

17. International Bat Appreciation Day.  I think this means the animals and not the baseball kind.    ‘Tis also International Haiku Poetry Day and National Cheese Ball Day!  So show your favorite bat some appreciation, while reading him/her a Haiku you wrote for them and sharing in a delicious snack of cheese balls.

Oh little Bat
Munching on a Cheese Ball
How I do adore Thee

24. National Pigs in a Blanket Day (Yum!  No I am not going to make a joke about little piggies all snuggled on a chilly spring night under a blanket together and how cute they must be!) and National Skipping Day!  While eating your little piggie in a blanket, I am guessing.  That combination sounds like a happy hobby.  Could be fattening too eating all those piggies in blankets, but do you suppose the skipping burns the calories off?

30. National Bubble Tea Day (I had to google this, it sounded so good and I guess I am behind the times cause everyone but me knows about this.  I plan to try some in rl soonly!) and we end the month with bubble tea aaaaaand…. National Hairball Day!  I wonder how people celebrate that last one?  With lots of catnip?

This all makes me realize one thing, humans are CRAZYYYY!

Oh and I did come in here to tell you about a freebie.  This comes from Shanti, via Ajuda Brazil.  It fits BOM and classic avatars (I’m getting away with it using BOM on my Maitreya Body).  There is a whole wall of Shanti freebies there, some more for classic bodies and some for mesh bodies too!  There are several floors of freebies there, so you definitely want to check it out!

This is enough blather from me for one post.  I’m off to the beach next time!

Peace & Pot Pies,

❤ Arielle

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!

Your favorite Blonde Blogger (show me some luv!),

Warrior Queen

3.28.21 wp_007

Warrior Princess Queen.  She will protect her kingdom at any cost.

Hey gang!

Got some goodies for you!  First off, Trend has a $500L gift credit free for VIP group members, and right now their group is free to join!  The credit will be available until 3.31, and will expire on 4.15.  I went and got this wicked corset outfit.  It made me feel like a warrior.  😉  Much of what they have is makeup though so its a great time to scoop up some makeup *or* an outfit, whatever your fancy may be.  There are also some VIP gifts upstairs so don’t forget to grab those while they are there.

The makeup is a new Fab Free gift from Rubedo called Tribal.  It comes in various colors and went perfect with the outfit.  I’m wearing it on that infamous head we heard so much about this week, the Catwa HDPRO Queen Head.  And if the hair looks familiar, it’s because our very own Fab Free Queen Aline (hey that rhymes!) blogged it here.  It is a free group gift at Love which is free to join right now as well.  Great time again to scoop up all their group gifties.  I haven’t even finished going through those just yet.

More goodies very very soon!

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!

Happy First Day of Spring!

spring_002

It’s FINALLY Spring!  I don’t know about y’all but spring colors really make me smile.  They are bright, but not overly bright, just bright enough to make you feel GOOD when you see them.  ahhhhhh.  Like the first little blossoms of spring!  As you can see I am all ready for spring with the help of Reed Emporium and Athy Designs!  This adorable dress is a free group gift from Reed Emporium.   The group is free to join, and she has numerous group gifts out that are so cute you will just want to grab them all!  (I did!  lol).  This dress comes with a HUD that has 4 color choices for the dress and three coordinating color choices for the belt.  It comes in:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The really cute Easter basket is from Athy Designs at the Wash Cart Sale, it’s only 10L and comes in wearable (3 choices of where/how to wear it) and rezzable.  I put a rezzable out out in my home and it looks sooo cute!!

Lastly this lovely hair is a free group gift from Sintiklia (they have a whole wall of gifts, if you have never been there!), and that group is free to join as well!  This hair can also been seen here and here!  It’s not new per se but it is still fabulous and free!
