With a Little Help from my Friends

FabFree Post: With a Little Help from my Friends

Lend me your ears

And I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing
Outta key

Real note here, can you believe that Across the Universe turns 18 this year?! I can remember clear as day the first time I watched it and fell in love with the entire story based around songs. I mean… I live by music and references to music, but this movie surpasses my writing/dreaming ability. So in honor of it turning into an “adult”, I am rewatching it this weekend to spark my joy for the Beatles.

Do you have plans? I am going to sit around on Sunday and do nothing at all. It’s going to be my Valentine to MYSELF! Maybe paint my nails with some bright color.. who knows… Most likely I’ll be watching movies with my kids all day goofing off like normal on the weekend.

Pink Cream Pie has a new free group gift out for you lovely fans and this one is a Vodka-lishious dress that fits my Maitreya shape perfectly. I’ve worn it for a few days (shhh don’t judge me) and I have to say it is hands down one of the best clothing gifts I’ve gotten for awhile now. I adore everything about this and it even comes with a panty on/off option.

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

The cute Valentine-y backdrop is also a hunt prize, it’s from NinaX.  It’s low prim and very pretty.

Candy Crush

candy crush_003

Hey ho fab freers!

Have I ever told you how much I adore candy? The chocolates, the colors, the flavors, the bliss! Why, I am just *mad* for candy! Absolutely in love with it!  One might go so far as to say that I have a candy crush!!

I’m also a fiend for the color pink and unicorns. While I have always loved unicorns (and horses), I used to avoid the color pink like the plague. Nowadays it is my power color, so do forgive me if some of my posts seem rather, well… pink!

Today I have for you a very cute pink dress by Art & Fashion Creations that I am wearing in front of the candy stand and enjoying some wonderful cotton candy. Mmmmm. It is a happy moment.  This dress was a free gift from Art & Fashion Creations, for being a part of the MLM Free&Offers group, which is free to join.

The dress comes in these sizes:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

A note of interest, Art & Fashion Creations creates all their clothing based on actual works of art, so every one is unique.

Until next time dear readers, enjoy the candy but watch out for that sugar rush!

Ugly Sweater Time

FabFree Post: Ugly Sweater Time

Holidate

I recently watched a cute little movie called Holidate, it had me laughing, crying, and having feelings all warm/fuzzy. It shows you how two people spend their Holidays together over the seasons. I have to say this is one of the sweetest movies I have seen in a long time. If you have the chance I do suggest taking a peek at it and let me know what your favorite part was.

HEY, IF IT’S ANY CONSOLATION, I SPENT MY HOLIDAY IN AN UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER, SIPPING COCKTAILS WITH A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE WHO I THINK WERE IN A CULT. — JACKSON

Pink Cream Pie has a new free group gift for you, this adorable ugly sweater is back again this season this time it’s in a form of a pretty unicorn tree. The group costs to join but with their past gifts out upstairs it’s worth the price 100 times over.

Foxy November

Thankful for November

When the temperature is perfect, the sun is shining, and the air is crisp and cool I can’t resist the allure of spending some time outdoors. It’s good for the psyche. Speaking of goodness, it doesn’t hurt to look good while you’re taking a moment to feel good. Pink Cream Pie and Demicorn have lovely new group gifts out, and I can’t help but feel extra cute wearing them.

Pink Cream Pie 

My foxy top is the November group gift at Pink Cream Pie. This top really couldn’t be any cuter. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 12 adorable fox patterns to choose from as well as 12 solid fall color choices. The Pink Cream Pie group has a join fee of 314 linden. There are quite a few previous group gifts still available, as well as lucky letter boards for group members.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara/Petite, MeshBody Legacy

All-Nighter

All-Nighter

I just couldn’t put the book I was reading down. Blue had gone to bed hours ago, at what anyone would have considered a late hour. I had replied that I too would call it a night after just a moment longer. One more page, a chapter, just a bit more.  A moment longer turned into hours later, the once blazing fire in the fireplace now glowing red embers, and the morning sun was hinting over the horizon.

It didn’t help the situation that I had the cozy comfort of the oversized arm chair and a fuzzy warm blanket to keep me content and steadily reading my book. Come to think of it the glass of wine probably contributed to my unintentional all-nighter as well. The chair with props, and table with wine and decadent chocolates are both part of the Monster Mash hunt prize at Kitty Creations. There are several individual and couples poses, many with fun props in this set. You can hunt it down for 1 linden at Kitty Creations. If you’re not in a hunting sort of mood, you can also purchase the set for 25 linden for the duration of the hunt.

Monster Mash Hunt Hints & Locationshttps://funwithhunts.blogspot.com/2020/10/monster-mash-hints-slurls.html

With my quite cozy spot near the fire, and my equally comfortable attire I was left with little ability to resist the allure of finishing my novel. This cute as heck tank top is a free Lucky Letter board prize at Pink Cream Pie. Not only is the witchy graphic cute, with the pastel colors versus the usual dark colors of the season, it references a favorite Halloween movie of mine, Hocus Pocus.  To participate in the Pink Cream Pie Lucky Boards (there are 3 new prizes) you’ll need the group tag. The Pink Cream Pie group has a join fee of 314 linden. There are quite a few group gifts available as well, you’ll find the boards and the group gifts on the second floor.

Let’s Get Spooky!

Let's Get Spooky

Hello Fab Free! This is absolutely my favorite time of year. This is when I can be as spooky as I want to, and no one seems to mind. That said, I think my level of excitement over the Halloween Shop & Hop events might have been the most excitement I’ve felt about an event all year. With several sims full of festive Halloween goodness and freebies, I can’t imagine not being excited. That said, I have several of the free Halloween Shop & Hop event gifts to share with you. I sincerely hope you love them, I do.

As Aline mentioned in her recent post “The Magic Words” there are 8 total Halloween Shop & Hop sims. Most (if not all) of the participating shops have a free gift, with no group required. Some gifts will require you to pay 1 linden,  however you will be instantly refunded. For this look I picked up the free gifts from Pink Cream Pie, #Adored, The Annex, On a Lark, and ChicChica. As usual you can keep reading for details about each free gift, or scroll to the end for full credits and links.

Pink Cream Pie

My thoroughly blood splattered top is the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by Pink Cream Pie. This gift comes with a color change hud that has several solid colored tees all with generous amounts of blood splatter.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Petite, MeshBody Legacy

#Adored

The free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by #Adored is the cutest little brow tattoo. It reads “Spooky” with the option of wearing it on the right or the left side, in cursive or bold lettering, each with the choice of bold or faded styles. This tattoo comes in tint-able BOM layers only, which gives the added option of having the tattoo in color.

The Annex

I particularly like this fun devil horns headband by The Annex because it glows like neon. It comes in several color choices, so you can wear this fun accessory with multiple outfits. They are also of course free at the Halloween Shop & Hop Event.

On a Lark

I think there’s a rule that says you can’t have Halloween without a black and red manicure. Okay, maybe not, but in my world these bento nails by On a Lark are a must this season. On a Lark has 2 darkly pretty manicure sets as free gifts at the Halloween Shop & Hop event. The ones I am wearing are part of the “Halloween” set that has 4 black and red variations in the set.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

ChicChica

Finally, my creepy cocktail is part of the free Halloween Shop & Hop gift by ChicChica. The gift includes two fantastically macabre martinis. Also, each of the Halloween themed  drinks has a bento hold pose. Have fun Fab Free!
