PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies.

This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one.

I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.

This new hair is only out at Kustom 9 so don’t even bother trying to get in there esp as it’s only just opened so it’s gonna be heaving!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog because you can see whats up for sale at this event and as always you can use the Mina Mainshop to go check the demo out in lag-free heaven.

PS.  I don’t bang on about it enough but the Group Membership for Mina’s in only 200Lds and she’s recently added a new hair to the room that has all of the shop quality hairs in it.

The dress is the dollarbie and there is a reason the hem is slightly cropped in the picture and I bet you can guess why?  Yup no SLink fit but you do get a fit for SLink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya & Isis and although I could find a nice fit it wasn’t a perfect fit.  Again you may have the mesh bod that does fit or of course you don’t even use one and have an alpha in your invent which will work.  The sleeves are attached as well which is a lovely touch but that might make a struggle if you do go for your own Alpha.

You might want to rush as obviously this is a lovely Valentines pressie off Spirit but it is only on the MP(Marketplace) and it might be pulled soon as Valentines is well and truly over.

You can skip all of this part as it’s just boring waffling…I’m good at that.

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and remember even if you’re on your own there is no reason why you shouldn’t make sure you have a treat to spoil yourself or in my case our cat because we remembered it was his RL BD on Valentines lol. So me and my OH probably spent more on him than each other plus we spring cleaned the house so let’s face it Valentines for a lot of people is overrated lol.

I’ve also been MIA because it was also my RL BD(say that so it rhymes) and I’ve had a lovely time which has only been slightly marred by Windows desperately trying to force me to do a window 10 update even changing my computers setting to allow it!  I won and Windows lost, this round at least lol but if you don’t want the windows update then check they haven’t changed your settings.

I’m also trying to sort out sim out, I should have maybe started next week rather than this as we stripped it all back and I started to rezz away but then had to stop as RL was fun, fun and more fun but now I need to get sorted and get all those bald sim patches filled, get my new studio sorted and make my mind up what house I’m finally going to live in for the next several months which I have to say is much more fun in SL than RL lol.

Why?(Free(?)Mina & Massive Mina Hair Sale).

I’ve been trying for days to get into a couple of big events and because they’re stoofed I’ve not been able to which is a shame as I would love to confirm it but I’m 99% sure that this Mina hair called Faith is FREE and add to that you get a FULL-colour hud pack! Holy Crapola! Faith is already one of my fav hairs, so obviously I’m just wearing the copy I already own lol, but to be able to snag this for free and the full-colour pack is AWESOME!

To get this free hair you have to try to squeeze your AV ass into the “Shop Your Heart Out Event” and I wish you luck.  I stood for ages waiting for enough people to leave so I could get in but nope, I’ve put the link to this event blog at the bottom of this post so you can see why this is a special event.  Don’t panic though as this event goes on till the 26th and the Mina LM should take you right to her shop at this event.

So I TP’ed over to Mina’s Mainshop and just stood on her lovely landscaped sim and pondered what to do because in her mainshop in celebration of her SL/RL Birthday she’s got a massively discounted sale on.  All of the women’s hairs and some of the men’s hair upstairs in her shop are slashed to 125Lds for each colour pack.  The reason for the rush is that this discounted event is only on till the 13th and you’re going to need all of the time from now till then to try on all of these hairs as there are so many!

These aren’t hairs which haven’t dated well in fact for a while I was at a complete loss as to why they were being removed from the inworld shop and then it dawned on me it’s the size of the colour hud options.  The discounted hairs are still some of the best hairs but they do come with a choice of 5 colours whilst the newer hairs come with a massive 10 colour options.

What a way to fill your invent with great hair.

You can miss out all of the rest of this post as it’s just me being spammy.

I get my Mina hair for free but I am a free agent, I don’t have to blog every hair, I don’t have to sing their praise, I don’t have to wear them all the time or bad mouth other hairs!  I only have to be honest and I LOVE Mina hairs.  Of course, I have hair from so many other designers, Dura, D!va, Argrace etc and LOVE them but Mina always just has styles that makes me feel “Oh yeah, that works” and even when not showing you a new Mina I’m 95% of the time wearing a Mina because I always just find the right hair.

Although most of her range is every day, everyone wearable she also had unique “out there” range of hair.  She also has the best range of men/unisexed hair I know although I will admit my knowledge of men’s SL hair is limited so any male AV will know what they prefer.  She’s now also coming out with a lot of little extra “options” which allow you to change the style of the hair, for example, the 2 new Pocket Gacha wins and each comes with the 4 ways to wear your fringe/bangs even Faith has 2 options the one I’m wearing and the other one moves the plaits to allow for bigger boobies.

I also know that Mina is a working lady, she’s in SL to make money and not just for making money’s sake.  I won’t go into personal details but being able to use her creativity and computer skills to make money allows her to look after not just herself but also her family and I think we, even I, sometimes forget that a lot of people actually do need the income from SL because it can for those who have the skill offer an income to help with RL.  Which is why I may hunt out the cheap ‘n’ free but when I spot something I love, usually furniture and landscaping stuff, I buy it. I spend a lot of Lindens in SL because people need support but mainly because my SL is my RL escapism and so if I spend some RL money to make my escapism just that bit sweeter then I do.

PS.  Forgot to mention that at the Mina’s mainshop LM there is also 2 Midnight Madness boards with yet again one of my go-to hairs in it!

Mina Hair@Shop Your Heart Out Event and I still can’t get in!

I bought this ‘n’ that but not the other.(Mini Sale@Kuro).

I popped inworld just for a mo but as soon as I read there was a bit of a sale going on at Kuro I had to check it out.

I bought this cos not only is it delightful and low primmed it only cost 18Lds, I have to confess that I think I already own it but I didn’t want to risk not grabbing it just in case and at that price even if I did I’ve not wasted much.

I bought this for the same reason as the first item.  A very unusual “vase”.

But I didn’t buy this, even though it’s super, low primmed and only 18Lds it’s simply because I just would never use it.

If you pop over to Kuro to check out the sale items you will find them in the small building where you rezz.  There are a few other 18Ld items in this small building and I’m tempted by a rather large and dramatic piece of modern art on the wall which I might just grab when I return to LM grab.  Not everything is only 18Lds so check before you buy plus the Gacha just outside the door is only 18Lds a pop.

PS.  Obviously, I’ve taken the pictures of the items in the shop as the sale is only on for a very limited time, basically 24 hours (till the 31st) so I didn’t want to waste too much time and just snapped away.

Back with class.(Freebie & Freebies & Bargains).

Aw no I was so excited when I grabbed this and then so disappointed when I found out there wasn’t a fit for my SLink body in the pack.

You do get the Maitreya Freya, Isis, Venus fits just not my SLink however as I always say you might have that mesh body or simply don’t use one and have an alpha which will work with this super gift.  You also get a really lovely 10 colour hud.

Because this like so many other gifts might be changed in a couple of days I would go ASAP but once you’ve grabbed this from inside of the Asteria shop go back outside.  I’ve blogged the excellent freebies and bargains that are actually outside of the Asteria shop before.  As you walk towards the shop the ones on the right are freebies and the ones on the left are cheapies.  When I have more free time I might just check again to see if there is anything new myself.

Again sorry for the MIA in SL, my OH is off work and is binge-watching all those box sets….it’s driving me mad.

PS Yes I did change the title because this is deffo class.

Everything 25Lds.

We got snow, we got snow, we got snowwwwww.  Not enough to make even a decent snowman but enough to make my heart warble.

Not free but at 25Lds for this green and a red version it’s a bargain add to that superb texturing and it’s a perfect OTT Christmassy/Winter gown.  I also actually bought the Sevil outfit, which also comes with a hairdo, and it too was worth every Linden but I didn’t take a picture.

You will have to shop for these on the Marketplace as there isn’t an inworld shop and you will also see that everything is only 25Lds.  I don’t know if the 25Ld is a temporary offer or if everything is always at that price but worth getting now not later in case it changes.  This outfit is on the first page but I’d also suggest you check the whole list of outfits before you make your mind up as there are some nice pieces and a lot seem to come with extra’s such as hair, shoes, Huds etc

This outfit does come with a bit of a disclaimer.  My AV is on the shorter side of average in SL but by no means am I a “short arse” as we say in RL but the skirt on this outfit does seem to have been made to fit an Amazonian.  I am hovering in this picture which is why you can see the red hem but when I’ve got my feet back on the ground the hem goes under the land…NOT an issue for me at all I still have no regrets.  The folding, texturing, the fits etc all make for a stunning look and of course, you can either hover and show the hem, stand on the ground and hide the hem OR of course you may find that you are the right height for the skirt.

UPDATE.

I wanted to show you the other outfit I bought for 25Lds and so I logged in and then the power to my house tripped and I crashed but I logged back in and took a quick snap just in case RL tripped me again.  Let me make this clear that this is NOT the hair that comes with this outfit,, trust me I know I’m totally spoilt with all the Mina hairs I have and the chance to wear one of the gray shades was too good to miss.

Again 25Lds and the top, which I’m keeping, and the skirts are separate and so can be worn with other items.

Damn looks like my computer crashing because of my RL power trip it looks like it’s made my SL settings go all screwy, so once I’ve updated this post, fortified myself with another cup of coffee I’m heading back inworld to reset my preferences!
