When Faith and I log in the first thing we have to do is sit down and work our way through all the notes and notices we get sent in our search for goodies to show you so I was sat there on platform working my way through my junk mail and I realised how good this just all looked. From the new Mina hair to my PumeC skin and how looking this good in SL now need not break the bank anymore. OK so this particular hair is full priced at the moment but Mina Nakamura has so many brilliant hairs out and often they’re at special events at special prices so if you can’t afford this one make sure to pop into her shop as in the entrance way are boards with all the Hairs which are available at events, and the LMs, and you can find them at sometimes a great discount. Check out Mina’s Gacha because the hair in there, Selenia is one of my fav hairs and it only cost 75Lds for a try and although you can’t chose which colour you win you get a colour pack and not just the one single colour. The jeans which I always wear are an old hunt prize and the top is an old freebie and the one in the next picture is a Mute 10Lds top and the shoes which again I always wear were 49Lds from Lindy’s. Just a fun shot at the Shiny Shabby sim of me trying to find any freebies but no luck so far. What I did find was way too many new and fresh designs for your AV and home and since I’m on a limited budget till payday I had to TP out before I caved in and bought more Lindens. Popping this picture in because I’m guilty of showing you the more natural colours such as blonde or browns but you can also chose much zingier colourful hairs that still look natural. I always wear PumeC skins and although I think the one in these pictures was Anastasia which is a full priced one I usually chose my skins at random because they’re ALL great even the ones given away as Group Gifts.
I Just recently I bought a Gacha skin from a shop and it was really nice and came with some Appliers but in the end I thought I can’t blog this because for the same amount of money, 100Lds, you can join PumeC and get 4 brilliant shop quality skins with ALL Appliers. So I gave that skin away. I also went and joined a VIP Group for another skin shop and to my shock when I went to the “VIP Room” to grab all the lovely goodies it turns out that all you get is a skin, a single skin, just ONE skin and nothing else not even a cleavage layer or brow option, no appliers not even a phat azz. (I know gifts are lovely and I don’t expect them, but when you’ve paid a reasonable amount of Lindens to join the group I do tend to expect appliers so the gift is usable – ok I’m whining a little I know I know !) So I binned it and un-joined.
However a shop where I have been a very happy Platimum Group Member of for many many years) is Michigans Shack. It cost 500Lds to join and each month a Group Gift is placed out and also various itmes with various discounts as well for us. I have a folder stuffed with items from Michigans Shack (it’s typed as MiChIGaN’s ShAck). You do not have to be a Group memeber to enjoy this shop, just join the normal group to be kept upto date with all of the hunts that are regularly held here and you will still end up with lots of goodies and they’re all top quality. Each week there are special 60Ld items out and rarely a week goes by that I don’t end up buying the special offer and this week there is a whole load of very 50 Shades of fun items (BDSM) and this bed. This bed which seems to be standard with most MS items comes with not just single and cuddle poses but with the hardcore ones so if you’re into threesomes, gay, lesbion, toys etc then there is a menu for you but please if you’re not do NOT let that put you off as these aren’t just sex driven items of furniture. Last mention apart from the one on the Shiny Shabby sim ALL of these pictures were taken in my Nams setting with no photo editing to show you how clean and clear the skin, hair and clothes look.
