I wasn’t going to do this post butttttt…(New Mina & Bargains.)

Although you can’t really see it I am carrying a weekend bag in my hand and that’s because I’m off for a couple of days, Woo Hoo.  Nothing exciting though and looking at the rain tipping down outside it’s going to be a very damp couple of days away but even that can have its own charm.  So I will be back either on Mon or Tue and until then be safe have fun and be kind to yourself.

I wasn’t going to do a post I was just killing some time before my ride turns up  when I remembered that when I was pulling a pose outside of Mina’s main shop there was a bit of a crowd so once I’d scored myself some bargains I went over to find out what was going on.

It’s a NEW hair which let’s face it Mina has to be one of the most productive hair makers in SL because she just keeps on coming out with new hair all the time and never seems to stint on the quality or design and yes this is a HAT HAIR!

“Hazel” comes with a fantastic ball cap style hat and the extras are 3 HUDS! One for your hair colour, one to have your hair styled different ways ie change the length of the ponytail and the tendrils framing your face, and the third one to change the colour of the cap and the peak.  All of the colours are subtle shades.  Actually, the hat at a pinch would make a great horse riding hat, you do get a black shade, and it has that nob on the top which is a standard design for horse riding hats and although the peak is longer than you would find on a helmet you could get away with it, all I need now is a horsey.

As for the bargains, the jacket is a new GG from Santino Design and it only costs 10Lds to join the group.  There are a few group gifts out inc this new one and also lots and lots of bargains both downstairs and upstairs, I know for a fact I have a few items from this shop esp some pants which have turned out to be really handy items.

DISCLAIMER.  Obviously, the sim setting and editing have changed the colour of the jacket but you will see from the picture in the shop it’s a more goldie gold and although in the picture they have this gold colour and a blue/teal colour I can only see one in the pack.

Saying Ta Ra.(Freebies).

Yup I’m off again but no need to get jealous as this isn’t a week away in a 5-star hotel, lounging by a pool, sauntering through pretty streets and indulging in fine dining, it’s me stuck in a cheap hotel, feating on pasties and the only water I will get soaked with is the rain which is threatening to tip down.

This time though I have insisted that I get a room near to the router and so I’m still looking forward to my daily SLing even if it’s in the evening.

Until then check out the skirt and shoes, the rest weren’t free.  OK I know it’s not really a good shot of them but they come from Loordes and we all know that’s quality.  The editing has changed the colour somewhat as both the skirt and shoes are a matching luscious chocolate shade.  The skirt is deffo new, at least to me, but the shoes maybe not it’s hard to tell as the this spiked, peeped toe design is a classic SL design.

You will find these 2 items on the wall behind the reception desk but Loordes has moved all of it’s freebies/GG’s/Discounts/Steals and Deals/Hunt items in the new LM.

I’m finished clicking. (Mention of sooooooo many freebies but not shown).

I’ve just turned a bit of the landscaping on our sim into Autumn colours but I’m going to stop as I want to ease into the new season and not go crashing in.  So once I’d finished doing that I popped over to the Redeux event and we all know this event so well because of the MASSIVE amount of gifts which are set out for us.  I’ve not started to unpack yet but when I log back in I’m going to spend a pleasant afternoon unpacking, sorting and yes, of course, binning my way through the lot and I will LOVE every minute of it.

But of course the gifts are set out to tempt us in but they’d like us to buy and buy I did! In the end I spent over 500Lds on things that tempted me inc these shoes.

“Dorothy” is on the NOIR stand and didn’t cost me 500Ld only 35Lds add to that a lovely colour hud which allows you to change the shoe and bow but not the off-white part on your toes.  You get fits for all main mesh feet plus a “material” and “non-material” version which is not a common feature, although I do have to say that all Mina’s hair comes with this option.  The “non-material” version is kinder on people who have slow running computers but I have to say it took me a long time to work that out as sometimes it’s hard to even notice a difference.

Then I picked this up from the Simply Shelby shop.  I’ve seen this umbrella plant a few times as of course Simply Shelby is one of those shops that has an awful lot of excellent discounted item out on a regular basis.  Taken in my sim setting and it’s 8 prims.  I’m pretty sure this cost either 25, 30 or 35Lds because I bought so many things I forgot the exact price tag.

I know for sure this cost me 50Lds.

Just the cooker and not the drying rack.  I rezzed it quickly to check it out and love it and because it’s only 3 prims I will leave it there for the moment.  Sad to say I have a whole folder of cookers but when I spot something different I just can’t help myself.  Velvet Whip is the stand/shop for this item.

So LOTS of really good gifts at this event but make sure to check out the other items for sale because a lot of them have very discounted items on them and there is an excellent mix of clothes, decor, landscaping, fantasy, realistic goodies for everyone.

UPDATE.  I forgot to click “Publish” and so now I’ve had time to unpack all of the gifts I can only say, make sure you go!  So many “ooo’s” and “aaah’s” to be found, a BIG Thanks needs to be said to the shops/designers who have been so generous.

Last Location.(10Ld Bather)

I’d left my AV stood at the Up! Summer Event so when I logged back in I had a quick saunter around and found this goodie.

You will find this on the wall of the “Stylus Store” stand and it costs only 10Lds.

I’ve taken the picture just in our sim setting so you can see what you get.  You also get plenty of fits, sorry I’m totally out of SLing time so I can’t give you the list, and a nice 6 textured hud all with a retro theme ie red/white polka dots and again just 10Lds.

If the LM doesn’t take you directly to the Stylus stand then you won’t have much problem finding it as this is the perfect sized event, ie plenty of stands but not so many you get lost.

PS.  This is on the wall and not in a gift bag on the floor.

Heads Up.(25Ld Tue).

Just a quicky because it’s TUESDAY and you know what that means?  My fav weekly event of 25Ld Tuesday.

Because I know that Belle Epoque only keeps it’s 25Ld offer out for a very limited time go now and not later.  There is a demo available and I do believe this pretty dress is prob a Maitreya fit only I snapped it up,  yes there is breakout at the back but I can either live with it or as I have done in this picture I popped a hair on that goes down the back and covers up the minor breakthrough. but try before you buy.

OK, Nuff said because I want to check out the rest of the list and I’ve only managed to log inworld late and although a lot of the sellers do leave their special offers out till next tue some remove them from sale quickly and I don’t wanna miss any goodies I may find useful.

BTW although a lot of the shops involved with this event send out the full list of shops it doesn’t always happen so if you want to make sure you get the list then the group you need to join is “25Lds Tuesday Connection” and that way you can get the list from there.

“Sexy Girl”.(10Lds Marketplace goodies).

Just a quickie cos I want to work my way through the 25Ld Tues list today as I keep on missing it but I found some nice n cheap stuff on the MP which isn’t bad at all.

This sheer outfit comes pantieless, for decencies sakes I popped a pair of my own on.  This outfit comes in 4 mesh body fits and the details are in the MP description.

Because this only cost 10Lds I decided to buy something else just to see if it too is wearable and not bad at all!

This is an oversized sweater with a backpack and I’m more impressed with it than I thought I would be.  The backpack isn’t separate so you can just wear the top on its own but it does make a nice little look.  You can change the colour of the sweater and I really like the 3 colours, very bright, summery and vibrant.  So many mesh bod fits so no issue there.

There is an inworld shop but there is very little in it and nothing thats on the MP shop seems to be in the inworld shop so MP only.

I’m a hoarder.(Cheapies n Mention of FREEBIES).

I have an artists soul but the talent of a 4-year-old.  That doesn’t stop me from slapping paint onto paper and occasionally I do manage to make something decent enough for it to go on the…..fridge LOL.

I picked this up from the Kei spot stall for just 25Lds because you can never have too much crafting stuff in SL and esp RL.  Only 4prims as well and it comes with poses, I especially liked the “admiration” pose which has you kneeling and admiring your work of art, trust me that never happens in RL lol.  I do believe it also has cuddle or couple poses but of course this for me is just decor.

A lot of the items here are items that were offered as 25Ld Tue or 30Ld Sat items but also lots of discounts and I bought a burlapped bath for just 50Lds which I’ve not even looked at yet but it looks great and is a cheap price.

As for the FREEBIES you will have to join the Free VIP Redeux group and on each stall is a gift and there are a lot of stalls so a lot of gifts.  Yes a lot of them will be small things such as jewelry, tattoos etc but just because I don’t wear them doesn’t mean they’re no good plus I mainly grab everything so I can have a lovely and relaxing time unpacking all the goodies, binning, sorting and more often checking out the shops they came from.

Be quick though as this event is over on the 21st so at least you have a couple of days.
