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

Avoidance Tactics

Avoidance Tactics

Today I’ve decided to thoroughly avoid vacuuming.  I usually manage to make it happen by blaring some loud, inappropriate music, but today I’m just going on strike.  The floors will have to stay semi-dusty for a day longer.  Instead, it’s time for some really intense doing of nothing.  I’m exceptionally good at that!

In My Mug

There’s a new group gift over at Mug!  Their gift wall is pretty well filled with cute gifts, and this little peekaboo tank is equal parts chill and sexy.  To get it, just join the Mug group for 250L, then click on the vendor.  You’re sure to find some other cute items while you’re there too.  Don’t forget that all the sizes are located in the HUD when you get clothing from Mug!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite
  • Maitreya Flat
  • V-Tech
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Freya
  • Kupra

Henlo Fren!

Wasabi are making my day today with this awesome new gift!  It’s billed as a group gift, but you don’t have to join a group to get it – it’s more of a subscriber type of thing.  Just click on the vendor (on your left when you enter the store) and you’ll be asked if you want to join, then the gift is yours.  In other words, it’s completely free.  I just love all the different sayings on the hat.  Way too much fun.

New group gift in store - Ermahgerd hair!

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

Sing it Loud

Sing it Loud

With all the hustle and bustle for the holiday season being a bit different this year than years past, I find it even more important to take small moments to myself when I can. I like to stop and indulge in small things like decadent coffee and music that compels me to sing along. Whatever your little indulgences are, I hope you take the time to enjoy them. Speaking of indulgences, I have a few find to share with you. The Christmas argyle sweater I have on is a new group gift at ChicModa, and this pretty skin is a free gift at WoW Skins for the Mesh Body Friends group. Lastly, get a little extra Christmas spirit with these cute earrings from e.marie. They are on sale this weekend only. Keep reading for details about both and how to get them.

ChicModa

I really like when I find Christmas-y clothing that is more “winter” and less “red and green.” Not that I dislike the traditional colors, I just enjoy more variety. That said, this cute cropped sweater is free to all ChicModa group members. The ChicModa group is free to join at this time. There are also a few previous group gifts still available, and group-only lucky boards.

Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, MeshBody Legacy

ChicModa x Exclusive Group Gift

WoW Skins 

One of the most coveted freebies on the grid is a good skin. You’ll find this one for free at WoW Skins, all you need to do is join the Mesh Body Friends group. That group is free to join. Then while wearing the Mesh Body Friends tag, click the gift vendor and the gift will be delivered. The “Mandy” skin is BOM only, and comes in a single tone. Also, there are BOM body layer skins meant to best fit Maitreya and Legacy bodies.

These fun festive earrings are the 60L Happy Weekend offer at e.marie. You can get them in a silver pack or a gold pack for just 60L this weekend only, so don’t wait! They have several options for the color of the bows, beads, and lights. There are also brightness controls, and different styles to wear them in. Will you be on the Naughty list or the Nice one? I’ll let you guess which list I’m on.

It’s Cold Outside

Cold Outside

Sometimes I am pretty certain I enjoy the fantasy version of cold weather much more than the reality of cold weather. As a southern girl I find I am just not cut out for all that a white winter entails. Virtual winter however is an entirely different story. I love the beautiful winter settings and the ever falling snow. I also love the excuse to have an extensive winter wardrobe. Beautiful Dirty Rich has out this cozy cropped sweater group gift, and my earrings and necklace are a stunning jewelry set gift by Cae at FaMESHed. Keep reading and I’ll give you more details, along with the how and where to get these fabulous gifts.

Beautiful Dirty Rich

I’m a sucker for a pretty sweater. This cropped cable-knit sweater by Beautiful Dirty Rich is free for store group members. Right now the B.D.R. group is free to join. The sweater is their latest group gift, and there are several previous group gifts still available. This fuzzy little sweater comes in quite a few sizes, and has a color change hud with 30 solid color choices. The hud will also allow you to custom tint the sweater. Honestly, it was hard to pick which color to wear!

Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara/Petite, Slink (Physique, Hourglass/Petite), MeshBody Legacy/Perky + Alpha Layer

Cae

There are tons of free gifts at FaMESHed this round. To get them, you’ll need to join the FaMESHed event group, which is free to join. That said, the earrings and necklace I am wearing are together the free gift by Cae at FaMESHed. I love the classic look of this jewelry set, and all of the customization options. The jewelry has resize scripts for easy fitting, and a color change hud with 6 metal choices, and 15 choices for the gemstones.

Among the Ruins

Among the Ruins

Here we go, FabFree.  Time to visit some ruins in a snazzy outfit.   What, you don’t do that every day?  Well, technically neither do I, but I do love a good ruin and a great outfit.  Next time I’ll visit the Forum in Rome wearing a ball gown.

Aline’s Kustom

It is indeed my custom to visit the event Kustom9 every month and play a few gachas.  I’ve extolled the virtue of Amitomo’s gachas many times in the past, mostly because it actually is an excellent deal.  I know there are gachas out there that are fun to play, but you often end up with 20 pairs of nose rings in puce, instead of the item you really want.  When it comes to Amitomo, you’re sure to walk away with a full outfit even if you’re just pulling once or twice.  Whenever I play these gachas, I keep our readers in mind – I know many of us like a good bargain, and I feel that Amitomo really does deliver bang for your buck.  At just 69L per pull, I got this top, shorts, and jacket (sized for Maitreya bodies) after my first try.  Worth it!  You’ll find lone jackets, earrings as well as a pretty hairstyle as the prizes too.  Good luck!

Now I wonder if there is a sim that features the Forum in Rome….

A Time for all Things

A Time for all Things

It’s the perfect time of the year for two things: first, clambering through the woods and second – The Wash Event!

In Dark Water

It’s always nice when the weather turns cool to have a fun event to look forward to.  The Wash churns out a great discount event several times per year, and this season’s is no different.  You’ll find plenty to love, just like I did!  My first stop was the Dark Water Designs display.  This floral jumper gives me all the right 90’s feels that are perfect for this time of year!  If florals aren’t your jam, then there are some really nice plaids too.  Best of all, this top and jumper set only costs 30L.  Oh, and there’s even an iced coffee in the box for you. Perfect!

The Things We’ve Made

The Things We've Made

I’ve seen some strange things in Second Life in my time.  You know, like twin cat women, or a seagull smoking a cigar, or even a giant tree that threw sap at passers-by.  What an odd world we’ve all created together!  There are also beautiful places, magical places, and dreamy places.  Winter Moon is where I went to find a bit of solace today!

Midnight

There’s a new subscriber gift at Wasabi!  This long hair and hat are just what the doctor ordered today, and it’s completely free!  To get your own copy, just click on the board above the display of gifts (it’s on your left when you enter the store) and then click on the gift box.  It was so easy I thought I must have done something wrong, but nope… there it was in my inventory!  All too easy.

Ramen Time

This long and quite revealing dress is the latest group gift from Ramen.  I had to add the little pasties for a bit of modesty, but perhaps long hair might also do the trick… Anyway, it’s spooky, red, and super sexy!  Get it for free when you join their free group.  There are also a few other gifts while you’re there.

Making My Way

Making My Way

Making my way downtown, walking fast, faces pass…annnnd the song is in your head.  You’re welcome.  But in all seriousness, I am in the mood for towering skyscrapers, bustling streets and possibly a hotdog.  I have been avoiding such outings for about 7 months know, with good reason, but a bit of normalcy really wouldn’t go amiss now and then!

Happy Day

Tachinni have been celebrating their anniversary recently, and to keep the celebration going they just released a new group gift.  This top, bra and shorts combo is business and party all rolled into one.  You can wear the top and bottom separately so your options with it are definitely not limited!  To get it, join the Tachinni group for 15 Lindens and it’s all yours.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya

Click Clack

When I saw these heels from Hilly Haalan, I knew I had to have them.  The group gift is found right at the landing point when you get to the store.  Happily, the group is also completely free to join and there are a bunch of other gifts to pick up while you’re at it.  I love the detailing on these!  They come sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink & TMP.  Sweet!

I think I’m going to go hunt for that hotdog now!

Spooking a Bit Early

Spooking a Bit Early

I know we’re still a long way away from Halloween, but I deffo need something to look forward to right now.  To that end, I’m spooking things up just a little bit with some fun gifts.

Zoom!

It’s an anniversary round at Twe12ve, and that means that there are some gifts to be had.  Each booth has a 12L special gift for you, and I really liked this knotted tank by Zoom.  There’s something deeply mystical about it, and that’s making my super early Halloween dreams come true!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Ooh, Spooky!

These knickers from Mikan were too good to pass up.  I love the fact that the HUD has lots of different Halloween options for the design on the front, including jack-o-lanterns, bones, ghosts and bats.  So cute.  To grab yours, join the Mikan group for free, then click on the vendor.  Adorbs!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Are you done rolling your eyes that I’m getting Halloweeny so early?
