Resting B*tch Face.(10Ld TeleportHub Gift).

A quick start,  since I will be babbling on I’ll give you the details first and you can scroll past all of the babble.

TeleportHub group costs 10Lds to join, love this group.  This dress is a Maitreya only and although there is break-through at the back if you like it then it’s not a big issue esp if you wear it with long hair.  I picked this up from a shop which I know I’ve not visited before so I had a saunter through and there is a lot of the usual stuff but I found a couple of “ooo that looks interesting” so I grabbed myself a couple of demos to try on when I log back in.

That face comes with that pose so I decided to rummage in my invent for a better holding pose that didn’t give me a slapped arse face and I came across this one.

Yup wearable/playable cymbals.   Not much better but a lot more fun. I think they’re either an old Gacha win or hunt prize from Madpea. Every time I come across someone making those damned moaning noises I should whip these things out and stand next to them crashing my cymbals, (no offence to anyone who follows this blog and uses the moaning noises lol).

Can I tell you about a Mina hair rather than show you it?  Again feel free to scroll on I don’t mind.  Anyhow this hair is called “Elowen” has been out for quite a few weeks now and the reason I haven’t shown you it is not because it’s not unique, stunning and pretty damned relevant it’s because I can’t style it.

Do any of you watch”The Walking Dead”? I don’t but my OH never misses a show which is why I know that this hair is has been inspired by the characters called “Michonne” and yes I did have to google that.  Michonne has her hair styled in thick braids and uses fabric strips to keep it controlled and it’s the same with Mina’s version.  It’s not an identical copy, the braids are more random in their thickness, you have beads which I think you can wear with or without and of course it comes with a hud that allows you to change the colour of everything.  You don’t need to be a Walking Dead fan to wear this hair, it may lend itself more to an RP style but it can just be worn any time you want just not on a skinny assed pale white AV like mine lol.  I just don’t do it justice so if you want to try it out for yourself then when you walk into the Mina main shop just turn to your right when you walk in and it’s on the wall there.

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!

I got sidetracked!(Dollarbie).

Who wouldn’t be tempted away from what they’re doing by this amazing dollarbie from Vanity?

Vanity is one of the hair shops I’ve actually spent money in and I think you can see why.  Vanity hair has a range of braided and afro styles which in my opinion are the best in SL and so to be able to get one for just a single Linden is brill.

You will find this in the room behind the entrance, there did also seem to be a group gift next to this one of a very interesting, wacky, hair which I’m going to assume is a Group Gift but I will check that out later as you don’t even need to join the group to be able to buy this Dollarbie.

Be a D!va(Freebies).

There is one thing I’ve always said is that you have to pay good Lindens for good hair BUT occasionally a shop will have a Freebie out which takes your breath away and here it is.

xxxdivause2

I have quite a few D!va hair, lots of them are old GG’s,  and a lot of them were bought from Collab88 so bought at a super bargain price.  I wore a D!va hair in my last post and it reminded me that I should get over there to check out the main shop and lo and behold there is a new FREEBIE and it’s superb.

Called Iris, it even comes with a colour hud plus the option to wear the hair band and flowers both of which I took off but only  because they didn’t match this dress.

xxxdivause3

This dress oddly enough comes in the same gift box as the hair and D!va isn’t known for clothes so it’s a nice thought that they have added it to their group members gift.  The shoes I’m wearing are a pair I picked up for free from the ON9 event, check out a couple of posts ago.  I’m still unpacking all the gifts from that event and I know that I had some pieces of jewelry which will be a good match for this dress as well so make sure to check that event out.

The group gifts are at the top of the first staircase but continue up to the next floor as there should be a few gifts out there as well.

SHOCKING! (inc Hunt Prize).

I’ve done it again and bought a new house for our sim! I think I probably change my SL home more than I change my RL hairstyle.

The “shocking” thing isn’t me buying a new house, Faith is so used to that, but that I’ve actually bought myself a new hair.  I adore Mina hair and count myself lucky that I’m one of her bloggers as I think her hairs are perfect but that doesn’t stop me constantly trying on other hair demos and mainly bining them but as soon as I put these braids/dreads on I fell in love.   I picked them up from the 0n9 event and they’re on the Emotions stall.

XXXBraids1

At this event 1 item on each stall is at a discounted price, I can’t remember which colour pack for the Emotion hair it is but although I was tempted by the red pack I went for the brown shades in the end.  I’ve worn 2 of the colour options I got in my pack but you get a total of 8 options which is pretty good and although I’m not wearing it there is a hair base layer if you want to wear it.

Because this is a paid for item I’ve reset the sim to the Nams setting so you can see how good the hair is, and of course my PumeC skin LOL.

I also wanted to show you the outfit, it comes from Wicked and is their offering from them for the Womenstuff Hunt and you get the top and skirt as separates and as you can see yet again 2 great basics to be worn together or as separates.  Each item in this hunt cost 1Ld and I’ve hardly even looked at it but I sure will and I’ll put the Link at the end for you to check out the LM’s and Hints.

XXBraids3

As I was at the Wicked Shop picking up my goodies I notice another hunt which is going on so that’s my plan for today and hopefully later I will be able so show you something rather odd.

PS there are a couple of Freebies at the On9 event.  The NYU silky romper suit is still out and it’s so pretty and well worth getting if you haven’t done so already and I’m almost sure the SL Free’s & Offers gift is a new freebie but I could be wrong however a simple grey poncho which is so fitting with the changing seasons.
