“Only the sexy people”.

I’m such a lucky little AV, again and I know I say it BUT if I had to pay for my Mina hair I would pay for it which is the only reason I blog for Mina and no one else.  Actually, I sorta lie because I would avoid the Mina shop like the plague knowing I’d probably go too spendy.

I’ve been wearing a new Mina hair called “Tiffany” in a few of my recent pictures and here she is in her full glory.

I changed our sim to Optimums skin n prim setting to show you how she looks but of course yada, yada, yada, you know the drill lol.

Tiffany is a thick and glorious hair with lots of strands woven in to waves.

I usually stick to my brunettes, reds and blonde packs but this one out of the pastel shades, inc ombres, is just so bold and bright. I normally avoid the grey shades in any hair pack as grey to a lot of us just looks like something hasn’t rezzed properly but there is no way you would think this grey wasn’t properly rezzed.  I’d actually love to have my RL hair professionally dyed to look grey as I’ve seen people with this done and it looks amazing but that would cost me an arm and a leg but in SL it only cost 300Ld and my RL me can just keep on dreaming.

As what seems to be standard with a lot of the newer Mina hairs this one also comes with not just the massive 30 colour options in each pack but also the “style hud” which allows you to change the way your hair hangs.  I never really mention it but if you can’t make your mind up then you could always choose the Essentials pack and I think that’s 350Ld but you get all the main colours from each option.

I always think that when a creator in SL or RL has the “competition” literally on their doorstep it’s because they have the confidence that their products will still stand out and that’s the case here.  This new Mina can only be purchased from a brand new event called “Salon 52” and it’s in a new building right next to Mina’s main shop. I finally managed to squeeze into this packed event but all I could do is cam and I’ve spotted a few things I am looking forward to trying on.

PS. The “Beautiful People” were man and woman who were on voice and they had the sexiest mofo accents ever! Sadly I have a thick Geordie accent and a tendency to sound whiney..so sexy!

Time to say goodbye.(Dollarbies & New Mina).

A whole bloddy sim and still not enough prims!  Actually, it’s the fault of all the amazing landscaping creators there are in SL because most of the prims seem to go on plants and trees and grass etc and even though they’re so low primmed it can sharp add up but dammit our sim is looking glorious but now we want a pool on our sim and so I’ve decided to sacrifice my studio.

Truth be said I rarely used it in any case so it’s not much of a loss and I have a much lower prim idea as a replacement.

I’m wiping away my tears with a couple of Dollarbies, from my fav shop Loordes of London.  In the area with lots of offers, “Steals and deals”&  “36Ld Saturday” etc are lots of hunt items ie an arrow, flowers, and each one cost a single Ld and contain a mix of things.  In this case, I bought the Cute and Curvy Hunt item which gave me the dress and the April Showers Hunt item which gave me these shoes.

Obviously, there is more than these but if you just want these 2 prizes then click on the hunt item and it should tell you what hunt it was for and TBH at 1Ld for each prize just buy them all.

The dress comes in standard mesh fits and alphas but easy to wear with a mesh body and the shoes in the 3 main mesh feet fits.

Now for the barnet.

Check out the back, all those random strands is what makes this stand out, can you see the ones which are curling back up? Anyhow I won’t rabbit on because I’m a total Mina bore but scroll past Faiths recent posts and you will see more pictures of this hair plus info on the New Mina Group Gift.

This hair, Celeste, is very similar to one I already have called June, but they are different you just need to try on all the different hairs to make sure you get the one that makes you go “Ooh that’s the one” before you make your choice.  Celeste has that big hair swept back look of the 70ties to me and of course the fabulous natural way the hair strands have been formed it looks as good from the back as for the front.  This new hair is next to the reception desk and cost 300LDs but woah you now get 15 shades in each colour palette.  You can almost age Mina hair by the size of the colour palette, her oldest ones have 5, newer ones 10 and the newest 15 and the shades in each palette are really different.  Anyhow simply click on the picture and try the demo and then simply click on the colour palette of your choice and pay.

You will notice above the picture is a sign for “FaMESHed Go” which is a new way of bleeding us dry with temptation.  You simply Add it, it will then ask you for permission to TP you just say yes and then you can see the list of shops that have something brand new out and you click on the shop name and if you’re allowed the TP then it will just do that

New Mina.(and small Freebie).

I have a bugbear and it’s when someone SCREAM’S FREEBIE in their title and they have a stunning picture of an outfit or furniture and it turns out the FREEBIE is a tiny little thing, a mouthie, thingamajig or  a whatsit etc so basically they’ve used FREEBIE as click bait.

So the “small freebie” in the title is the eyes, look deep into my Poetic Colour eyes…ignore the hair just look at my eyes!

You get a big pack of the one shade but so many sizes and of course, they’re mesh eyes.

NOW you can drool over the hair which sadly isn’t a freebie but it is a new Mina.

In the Mina shop, there is a lot of this style of hair, long, loose, natural drapey big hair without the wiggy/helmet look. Every Mina hair is different but sometimes she takes what works with a hair and works it into another hair which is why I always put her main shop LM so if you’re on a budget you can try all the hairs on before you find the one that sings to your heart.

BUT this one not only comes with the brilliant texturing and thickness but you can wear it 4 ways AND it comes with the newer 15 shades in each shade packs Hud and only 279Lds!

Slightly hyperventilating here.  You can wear cheap clothes, you can wear cheap shoes but you cannot wear cheap skin or hair so even if you invest in one paid for hair pack or skin with this much bigger colour palette you get all you need.

So the “options”(on the Hud you click the options tab) are thick strands down the front of both shoulders, one strand only down either left or right or hair fully over the shoulder…yes clear as mud but of course always try out the demo’s first even if you like how this hair looks on me you must always try on hair/skin etc for yourself to make sure it suits your AV.

As it happens I didn’t notice the Demo in Mina’s mainshop on my last visit but it really should be there as she’s pretty good at putting the Demo’s and LM’s out for her new stock.  Only available at Kustom9 at the mo and it’s packed! but for once I’ve got in pretty early so you have till the 10th April before this event is over.

UPDATE I was right and Mina has been prompt and “June” is now in her mainshop for you to try the demo on first.
