Hello there Fab Free’rs! I feel like I’ve been away too much too often lately. I apologize for that. That said, I love this time of year! Once I even attempted to wear something Halloween or fall related every day for the entire month of October. It was an epic fail, no one should ever have that much orange in the closet, but it was fun trying. lol This cute sweater reminded me of that attempt, and my love for the season. I hope you like it as much as I do.

A Halloween Two-fer

One of the most recent group gifts at Caboodle is a pair of Halloween themed sweaters. These FREE group gift sweaters are exactly the type of sweater I’d want on a cold casual autumn day. They are made to look a little over-sized, and the texture looks incredibly soft. Along with the cute ghosts shown in the photo, there is a second sweater with little skulls in place of the ghosts. The sweaters come in several mesh sizes, and the Caboodle group is just 25 lindens to join.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya

A Manicure to Match

I always enjoy when my nail polish matches my outfit. It doesn’t often work out that way but this time I came across the perfect polish! The Makeover Room group gift from Entice is a set of cute Halloween themed nail appliers, including these b00-tiful little ghosts. There are 6 frightfully cute Halloween polish options to choose from. The Makeover Room group is FREE to join, and you’ll find this gift at the landing point for the event.

Appliers Included: Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega

Here are all the details, Enjoy!

I Want Candy!

I Want Candy!

No Tricks, Just Treats…

Love and I decided to get a head start on the grab for candy this year. I don’t know why , but she always seems to get more treats in her bag than me. (I think she reaches in my bag when I’m not looking) This year I have a plan… be a depressed donkey and hope I get pity candy. We’ll see if that works. I can always point to the nail in my bottom holding my tail on for a little extra sympathy…

Just Like at The Wal-Mart…

We found our Halloween costumes on the Darling Home and Gift cart at The Wash Cart Sale. The TigGGR and E-Or Costumes are just two of the many costumes you will find for just 10L each. These costumes were designed to remind you of the “store bought” costumes of our youth. The wonderful thing about these costumes is because they are rigged mesh, they will work for men, women and teens. The costume accessories come with a built in resizer to get the right fit. Head on down to The Wash Cart Sale and get your costume today!

Seems Like Old Times…

Tenk Tank - MnM Avatars

Love reminded me that this is not the first time we teamed up for a Halloween costume post. As a TBT, I present to you a photo from 2011. Don’t we look tasty?

True Gentleman

True Gentleman

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished…

“I wish I had a copy of today’s newspaper” she said with a sigh. The “sigh” being the signal for me to ask her if she would like me to run down to the newsstand and grab her a copy. And, of course, I did. She smiled and said, ” You don’t really have to…” letting her words trail off, letting me know what she was saying isn’t really what she was meaning. “I’ll be right back. I proclaimed as I was out the door before she could feign another protest. As I arrived at the newsstand, I happened to look down at my shoe.  I rolled my eyes and proclaimed to no one in particular “Why can’t you pick up after your dog?”  At least the newspaper will come in handy for something…

Stepping out in it with Style…

My dapper look is a FREE gift, NO GROUP JOIN at Lupus Femina. I am not sure how long this FREE deal will last so hurry down and pick up the True Gentleman Suit before the price changes. The suit comes with pants, shirt and jacket, or a shirt and vest option.  My pose today is a FREE Men Only Hunt gift found at Animosity. The Jhamal pose set can be yours if you find the hidden mustache.

Tending the Info Hub

Tending the Hub

 Sprucing it Up..

I’m putting a shine on the FabFree Info Hub to have it look it’s best for the start of The Wash Cart Sale for all the visitors to the sim looking for great deals on some fabulous items.  While she is out shopping I thought I’d give the flowers a much needed drink. I didn’t mind that she was browsing the carts without me, because I snuck out early and picked up a few items on my own. Shhhh… Don’t tell her.

Autumn Attire..

There are so many great finds for 10L and 50L. I purchased the Quilted and Fleeced Wide Pants, Pullover and Matching Scarf from Dark Water Designs for just 10L. This outfit comes in several colors each just $10L.

Adding some Color…

I felt that the Info Hub needed some much needed color so I purchased both the Southfork Plant Stand and the Southfork Tough Planter Set from Low Prim Living for just 10L each. The Tough Planter comes with a watering can and an animation to give those thirsty plants a drink. You can also change the flowers in the trough to suit almost any design choice. And don’t forget to check out the gachas , the yard sale and oh yeah, the FREE gifts to celebrate the Cart Sale’s 10th anniversary! The Wash Cart Sale is on now until November 1st.

I’m a MONSTER!

I'm a Monster!

Morning runs are all about comfort..

The past few morning have been a bit chillier than the summer like temperatures I was experiencing a week ago.  But the drop in degrees haven’t deterred me from my morning strolls. I just have to dress a bit differently. I’ve said goodbye to the shorts and t-shirts and hello to the pullovers and long pants. My workout look today comes by way of the Men Only Hunt 10. My KossKoff Crew Sweater is the hunt prize at Fe Style.  I found the Dana Dot Pants at *AGATA*, because comfort is the key factor in workout wear. I’m keeping my neck warm in the Fluffy Scarf, the MOH10 gift from ::K::.

Updated Gifts…

One of my all time favorite group gifts are the Vasiforms sneakers at Vale Koer . They have updated their group gift to the V-3 Trainers. Just like the previous group gift. These shoes come with a texture HUD that makes the color combinations virtually endless. I plan on getting a lot of mileage out of these shoes!

And Now… A Moment of Zen

And Now... A Moment of Zen

 

Tai Chi with some Chai Tea…

Getting centered is now part of my daily avocation and nothing goes better together than Tai Chi and a cup of Chai Tea afterwards. I needed to be at total peace to put on a new avatar to model for you today (I get nervous I will never get my usual body back on correctly). I found the Robert Bento Mesh Fullbody Avatar at Altamura for FREE on the Men Only Hunt 10. I recommend you pick this up even if you make no other stops on this hunt. I kept the avatar in it’s unpackaged condition (no appliers) so you can see what you are getting. I was impressed with a couple of things, one being the facial movements of the Bento head, and the other being the alpha HUD.

Accessorizing the New Look…

I used some other items from the MOH10 to give “Robert” his own personal flair. Bad Hair Day provided the Irusu Hair as their hunt gift. Avi-Glam‘s gift is the Cold Day Eyes. To cover my “bits”, I put on the Brian Boxers, the gift that can be found at Alter. This gift includes a HUD that lets you select from five different colors. I accessorized with the Rage Nose Piercing, the hunt prize found at LouLou&Co & BeBop . And.I also put on the Knight Cross Necklace, found at etham.  Did I mention that all the gifts I just mentioned are FREE? The pose today is also a FREE gift on the MOH10. Grafica provided as a gift the Gwrido pose set.

May you find your inner peace today.

Finding the REALLY BIG ONE!

Finding the BIG ONE!

No rest for the weary…

My Sunday didn’t go as planned. I was hoping to enjoy the middle part of my three day weekend lounging in bed until an ungodly hour, then putting on a pot of chili and watching some football. But when she entered the bedroom all perky (note: Who is this person? She is never perky in the morning). I knew my plans were a bust. Her chore for me today… go find the perfect pumpkin. And not just any pumpkin, but a REEEALLY BIIIIG one (Her words, not mine). After stopping by many pumpkin farms, I think I found one that will please her (A challenge in itself). If I hurry, I can still catch the start of the game. I hope she took pity on me and started the chili.

Men Only (Not Really)…

Today’s look comes straight from the Men Only Hunt 10. The Hunt started over the weekend and everywhere I went there were hunters looking for the FREE gifts. My outfit is the FREE hunt gift at Wilson’s Designs. The Rust Pullover and Blue Jeans are the perfect fall casual look to find pumpkins (or mustaches). The Shirt comes fitted sizes ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, Gianni, Slink, TMP and classic avatar XS-XL. The pants come in sizes XS-XL. The Jake Canvas Sneakers can be found at ILLI as the FREE hunt prize. These beautifully detailed sneakers come in sizes for the the following body types:   ADAM, Aesthetic, Jake, MeshProject, Signature, Slink and TMP. Don’t worry, ladies, there are also sizes in the gift to fit you too!

Oh My Gourd…

Today’s pose is the FREE MOH10 gift from Le Poppycock. The Oh My Gourd pose comes with the pose, the large pumpkin that you carry and a group of pumpkins for your background (not shown). The Men Only Hunt 10 runs until October 28th.

I hope this one is big enough. I don’t think my back could handle a bigger one!

We All Float

We All Float

Want a balloon?

As  I was looking through my week’s worth of hunting, I saw these two  hunt items and just knew they belonged together. “We All Float” sign is a dollarbie hunt gift from Celestrial Designs as part of the Horror Hunt. With its transparent background, you can let it “float” anywhere.  The Laughing Clown can be found at Stitches Creations as a FREE gift on the Masque Hunt.  Both items are great decorating decor for this Halloween season.

Guarding the Last of the Harvest…

I’m not the only one that is enjoying my pumpkin patch this year.  My pumpkins have been slowly disappearing to the point I have to patrol the fields at night to protect what I have left. With Chomper and Bruiser to help, I think the last of the pumpkin crop will be safe.

The scene, Halloween Pumpkin Guarding is a hunt gift that can be found on the Bump in the Night Hunt. This gift by Season of Wonders  can be your for just 1L if you find the hunt item, or can be purchased for 25L at the hunt sign.The dogs and the pumpkins give off an eerie orange glow with the right windlighting. Now back away from my pumpkins…. Chomper…  Bruiser… Attack!
