Wrapping it up. (Freebies).

Last post for the day.

This lovely jumper came from No Cabide.  You get a total of 20 very interesting textures with it.  This is the same as my last post in that there are lots of GG’s, in a room to the right as you walk in, but you will have to join different groups to grab the different gifts.

OH and there are lucky chairs and there was a very interesting special priced top I was interested in but I talked myself out of it in time.

PS I’ll tell you about the hair tomorrow as it’s a new Mina and I’ve already bored the tits off you talking about Mina products.

I was wrong and right at the same time, New Mina Group Gift Hair.

This has turned into a long post but stick with it as there is more info about bargains etc.

The hair I was wearing in my last post is called Irma and when I saw the new GG from Mina Nakamura I would have sworn I was actually wearing the new GG but I was wrong.

This is Carmen the new GG.

Scroll back to my last post and apart from the excellent Dollarbies I’m showing you in that post you will be able to see the comparison between that hair, Irma, and this new one called Carmen which is the newest addition to the Group Gifts.

Mina not only comes up with fresh new designs she often takes what works brill in one hair and incorporates it into another hair to create a new look and that’s why this messy piled up bun with all those straggly bits looked familiar to me but Carmen has a bigger messier bun and even more of those face-framing stragglies.  This is also why I always put the link to Mina’s main shop so you can see if there are other hairs with a similar styling that you actually prefer and you can try them on before you make your mind up as to which one you prefer.  I mean how many times have we bought something and then found something we would have much preferred and kicked ourselves?

Carmen comes free but only for those who are already in the Mina VIP Group and that only cost 200Lds to join.  Although you only get this one shade for Carmen you do get the option of wearing it with or without the stragglies and this shade will never be used in another Carmen or other hair pack, I’m not really sure but it’s a one-off colour.

The other GG’s are a mix of one-off colours ie the Arwen bloodied version or actually full shade packs but you can see and try the demos out for yourself before you decided if it’s worth joining.

There is also a men’s selection in the group gift room and everyone should grab both the male and female hairs as some of them make fine unisex hairs.

I’m in a lot of paid for groups as some of them can be pretty generous but we also know of some where you pay a hefty joining fee and never seem to get anything back well in this case even if you just join the Mina VIP group and snag all of the GG’s inc the men as well you get so much back for your 200Ld investment but if you decide to stay then you also get 10% off each future purchase.

Trust me I would join the Mina VIP group if I had to and as soon as a notice of a new hair comes out I’d be TPing over.

PS.  For those of you on a budget the Gacha’s have some really lovely shop quality hair and you get the full hair colour pack plus some great hat/hair combos so if you’re willing to risk the shade then this is a great way of getting a bargain hair for 100Lds and under and you can even try a demo on before you make your mind up.

SORRY more spam but I think you will find it helpful.  The new GG is on the wall at the LM but the rest of them are in an area to the right of the new stuff wall, at the bottom of the stairs.  You will also notice that the Gacha machines have gone but they haven’t Mina has just replaced them with Gacha boards.  So the super Gacha bargains are still to be had.  Lastly but not least Mina had a big shake up and a lot if not all of her “old hair” is now on the Marketplace.  This isn’t “old” hair as such what it is is these are the hairs that have the 5 shades in the pack as standard but quite a while ago now Mina changed it so that it’s now 10 shades in a pack!  So instead of faffing with the other hairs and inc the colours she’s just slashed the prices to I believe about 125Lds so amazing hair at amazing prices as long as you shop on the MP!

I swear to God my next post will be short!

FREAKY!(Dollarbie & a Heads Up).

Every time I wear this sort of towering shoes I always itch to do a tripping pose and so here it is.

They may not be to my taste but don’t worry I won’t judge you if they’re yours because after all, it’s your SL and not mine.  The dress and these boots come in all the main mesh body fits and only cost a single Ld.

Cute and sweet without being sugary.  Again this is a dollarbie and comes with all the main mesh bod fits.

This is the last of the dollarbies I’m going to show you but there are a couple more in the Takito shop.

The “Freaky” is that a notice has been sent out that there is a new addition to the Mina Freebies and it’s a hair called Carmen and I quickly clicked on the link and although I can’t swear to it I’m about 99% sure I’m actually WEARING IT!!! Kismet or what.  I’ll do a post about that and what else is in Mina’s VIP hair group as soon as I get back inworld.

Risky business.(3Ld Gacha).

Somehow I ended up at a little yardsale even though I swore I wasn’t going to Gacha again this month, just like I swore I wasn’t going to eat those chocolate dipped pretzels!  So I succumb and picked up more stuff I don’t need and then I spotted three of those new and super cheap Gacha machines, in the corner under the big red SALE sign.

You know the ones I mean the ones where the person just wants rid of the random piles of stuff they have so they shove it in a Gacha and slap such a bargain price were suckered into clicking away…I LOVE THEM!

The boxes in this picture are the actual delivery boxes and then on their own are stunning decor features as you get all that lovely details and only 2 prims.

Look at Ma Big Frilly Ass, it’s so detailed, I’d hate to have to iron this thing in RL.

Don’t worry about the fits as you get all the main mesh fits for the clothes, plus they are the sort of clothing everyone will be able to wear, and as for the shoes I think it’s the 3 main mesh feet fits but they are the medium height.

But guess what???? ONLY 3Lds a try, yup only 3 bloddy Lindens.  I had to TP away before I went click crazy because there is a lot more to win in that Gacha and I would love to win it all.

UPDATE. Because you just know when I went over to grab the LM I would get suckered into splashing out more cash on the Gacha but this time I tried the other 2, one is for 5Lds a pop and I won some really nice stuff inc a rare but the other 3Ld one must be empty as I paid but nothing was sent but I’m not bothered as it was just a few Lindens.  I’m definitely not going back again because you know I will just keep on clicking.

Old, old and very old.(Freebies).

Just a quickie as I’m slowly but surely trashing my way through my invent but I came across these glasses and even though I scored them XXX years ago they’re still out and they’re still brill.

Lots of different colours for the lenses, green, brown, yellow etc and 2 shades of gold and silver for the frames.  I picked the clear lens colour for this picture to show you.  They’ve survived the cut and are going to be keepers for me.  The other 2 gifts are a wooly scarf and knitted hat and you will find all 3 just inside the door to your right.

PS. Before you go inside just turn around and admire the scenery LOL.

From 0-10Lds.

Garden of Shadows is full of stalls and on most of the stalls is a giftie, some are 0Lds and some are up to 10Lds.  I didn’t buy much but I spotted that Prey has a stall and I’ve had good stuff from this shop so I bought the gift but I can’t remember now if it was one of the zeros or 10Lds one.

Simply fab, you get both the jeans and the jacket so even if this did cost me 10Lds it is well worth it.  I won’t lie I’ve almost literally just binned this jacket which was either an old Prey gift or a very similar one from another shop and it hurt because it’s really good texturing, great fit and quality but since I rarely wore it I decided to let it go so to pick one up made me chuckle.  The jeans again are a really good fit and the fact you can wear them as separates make it a bargain.

UPDATE.

I had to check and yes this is actually one of the free gifts AND in the box is also one for men as well so that makes a great gift even better.
