Being naughty!(Freebies).

I try not to log in first thing in the morning as like most of us I have stuff to do but I logged off last night with the BEST SCARF EVER!  So good I’d have bought it if it wasn’t FREE.  So this morning, sod work I’ve just had to log in and do this post.

DISCLAIMER! This is not the same pose as my last picture! URGH! I have a “style” to my pictures which is usually just me stood in front of a pretty background, even though I have a shameful amount of poses I always seem to use the plainer ones but I guess in the end if they work for me then I have to go with what I feel shows the outfit, and me, off.

OK now for that scarf! OMG so good, I’ve been trying on so many free and paid for ones, mainly free of course, but they’ve just not worked for me and then I was visiting a shop I’ve not been in for a while called Tram and this is their FREE Group Gift.  Hold onto your knickers/underpants or thong as you get a brilliant 10 textured hud which has 5 lighter textures and 5 darker ones and a male/female size…go get it NOW, I’m ordering you to.  Not sure if this gift is in the shop or just the group notices so if you don’t see it in the shop check out the group.

If you’ve not been to Tram before then you’re in for a treat.  There used to be more clothes than hair but now there is more hair than clothes which is a slight shame as the clothes are unique, you won’t find them in any other shop.  The hair, not worn, is similar to the one I am wearing but I got this hair from “DP Yumyum).

This hair and the other one in the Yumyum shop have been group gifts for years but well worthy gifts.  I change my hair to suit the picture I’m taking but for my rambling around SL and most of my pictures I wear Mina 80% of the time, Argrace 10% and Yumyum the last 10%.  Between these shops you get a brilliant mixture of realism, cute, youthful, interesting, stylish and unique hairs.  The Yumyum range is much more young and cute styling.  So there is this and another GG just waiting for you if you’ve not already got them.

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’m Gonna Make You PAY for this! but don’t worry it’s a bargain priced Gacha.

So I’ve done my cheapy for the day so now I’m going to make you pay, for this New Mina hair.  Hair and skin are almost the last things that you have to pay to get the quality, fortunately there is a couple of top quality shops out there who do an occasional amazing free gift for skins and hairs such as Dura and Ann Hurley but the reality is that quality is few and far between so my aim in SL is to make you save Lindens on the stuff I can find for free so you can spend your Lindens on great hair/skin.

Firstly ignore the top as it’s an old freebie and long gone, although I might just check that out because I could be wrong, it’s the hair I want to show you.

I want this hair in RL, I want this short slightly scrappy cut, cutie hair but then again I also want thick flowing locks or a ratted Bee Hive look I wish changing hair in RL was as easy as SL.

This hair called Anika, that’s the same name as the top I’m wearing which is why I’m using this top LOL.  Anika is only available at the new round of The Epiphany and I’m NOT GOING TO GO,  mainly because I’m too poor and there is too much temptation!

Mina doesn’t stint on her hairs even the ones is the bargain 75Ld Gacha because as I’ve said previously you do get a colour pack so 5 shades of blondes, brunettes, reds (the best red hair in SL) all in a simple to use Hud and I almost forgot that a lot of Mina hairs come with 2 styles, sometimes the difference can be very slight but sometimes it still makes all the difference.  I decided to do a quick log in to check out the second version in the pack and I couldn’t help but take a quick snap just as I was on my working platform with no pose because SOD IT my AV is GORGEOUS just like the real me…stop sniggering!

PS Remember the Epithany is special because if you don’t want to keep what you win or end up with too many of the same things then DO NOT UNPACK them.  A pop up menu pops up giving you the option of keeping or trading it in for points and with these points you get to treat yourself to a special that can only be purchased with these points and in Mina’s case it’s a beautiful hair flower.

Follow the link to the Seraphim web site, an amazing scource of all things SL, for the piccies and lMs and don’t panic if the place is packed because it’s on for a whole month.

Quickest post evar! for FLF.

So I quickly popped back inworld and snagged a couple of the FLF offers (Fifty Linden Offers) and as soon as I got this hair I rushed home quickly rezzed my new Dust Bunny Skybox and new chair both 188Lds and both from Collabor88 and then threw a pose.

I’m doing this on the quick because it might be gone by tomorrow s for you 50Lds you only get the 1 hair/shade but the cute ruffled almost a “something about Mary” look to it but without the smut grabbed me.  Taken in my Nams setting so this is what the colour, to me at least, looks.  I thought the GG next to it was another cute hair but it’s actually a bow pack but emm it didn’t work for me so you may want to grab that in anycase and try it out for yourself.

After all the long posts I’ve been doing I bet you’re grateful I’m keeping it short n sweet…just like this hair, you know I had to make THAT joke! but thinking about it the shop this comes from is “DP YUM YUM” errr is it just me or is that seriously smutty?

Oooo Nursey.

NurseyBored(again) so I mooched on the Marketplace and found some goodies. One of which is this mesh Nurses dress and it’s only 50Lds.  I’ve not really looked at many nurses outfits so I don’t know how many are out there but what I do know is 50LDS for this is a bargain.  Standard Mesh sizing cute sexy or even just for RPing.  The stethoscope is an actual Dollarbie as well so the whole look for 51Lds and if white isn’t your colour then she has a light blue version.  I only wish I had remembered to put on my bloodied rubber gloves.

HairBecause the prop light behind me was flooding the picture I decided to take a better one of the hair because not only is it cute and adorable but it’s FREE.  A new hair shop (to me that is)  called.  The group costs 250Lds to join and there is a group gift of a lovely pony tail hair and this hair is up there as well but as a blogger I click on everything this this one is FREE for all.   Due is a small shop with a relatively small selection but damn they’re ALL great.  Because I don’t have unlimited funds I settled for one hair (I’m wearing it in my previous post) and this freebie.  Her style is young and fresh lots of long hair that lays beautifully around your AV.  I will be going back there to get some more at a later date so I will post about them at a later date but till then grab this cutie.
