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.

It’s confusing! (Dollarbies).

Blimey, I’ve been doing my accounts this morning and I deserve not just a pat on the back but a MASSIVE BOX OF CHOCOLATES AND A KITTEN WITH RIBBONS ON!

Fortunately, I’d picked these up last night from the VIP room at Yasums.  The VIP group is actually free to join and there is a handful of other gifts in there but they only cost 1Ld when you’re wearing the VIP tag.

There is a dress which I’ve already blogged and is super lovely, you get a big hud which allows you to change the texturing so this dress will go from Gothic Darkness to Pinky Princessiness.  I’ve tried to find the picture I did of it for my last post but my scrolling finger got tired but if you have another Ld to spare then it will be another lovely addition to your invent so yet again if these Kawaii boots aren’t to your taste still check out the rest.

Now for the confusing part.  The LM takes you to a room where there is a TP and you simply hop on it and choose which dept you want to go to, men’s, women’s, new etc there is a “VIP” room which is where you find the newer and 1 dollarbie gifts but if you hop on and chose the Group Gifts then it’s a BLAST, from the past that is lol.  If you want to see what clothes were like back in the bad old days of system layers and sculpties then this is the place for them.  I’m not knocking the owner of Yasum because there VIP gifts are really lovely and top quality and I will admit I had a tingle/cringe of pleasure trying on the old stuff and admire how much clothing, hair, shoes etc in SL have come along.

Turn around.(Dollarbie).

Just a quickie because RL is screaming.

A pretty and simple little summery dress which comes with a nice little colour hud.  Although I know the inworld shop pretty well this, as far as I can tell from the notice, is just a Marketplace offer for a single Ld.  So I snagged, ran, pose and voila.

Once I get back inworld I’m heading off to the M&M shop as it has been yonks since I was last there and from my memory it has a lot of GGs and cheapos and a massive wall of lucky boards (will admit they are rather dated wins though) but it will be nice to see whats new and whats not.

Must wear panties!(Super Bargain and mention of Freebies).

I wasn’t going to go to the Hashtag/Spotlight event because although I know there are freebies, on the table at the landing spot, and there are gift on the stalls which are a mix of some free but most are between 1-10Lds but because I’m just about up to my SL eyes in unpacked gifts from so many events I just couldn’t face picking any more up.

So I was literally running around this event just to check it out any new stuff and I was stopped in my tracks by this amazing outfit on the “cae.b” stall.

I grabbed the demo then finished my run around the event TP home and within 2 mins of trying it on I was back at the event and screaming “TAKE MY MONEY”, 55Lds to be exact.

I love clothes that have a bit of life to them.  This dress also comes with a Hud containing 15 textures and all of them are very busy like this one, they reminded me of old curtains/rags etc which have been upcycled into this dress, you also get ALL of the mesh sizes you could ever want plus a legging Applier, which didn’t work for me but I don’t care because I LOVE it, you may not so make sure to try the demo first, and this is going to be one of my “goto” outfits.

I’ve put the link for the cae.b shop as I’m in there right at this moment fighting against the temptation to buy another outfit from this brand because with the use of textures there is some really stand out outfits here. Also check out the MP shop as there is some 10Ld outfits which seem to be full priced in the mainshop.

PS. As mentioned in my last post if you check out the grass that is the season changing grass from SR (Sweet Revolution) I mentioned in my last post.

Slap a Sub, they like it!(Freebie).

OK, a quickie but there might be updates.

This post is for the dress which was sent to me, and everyone else of course who is a subscriber of Busty Boutique. But you’re not subbed to Busty Boutique or you are but haven’t been sent this dress, and shoes, then pop over and unsub then resub and it will be sent to you after a couple of minutes.

I did briefly mention shoes but since I wanted to do a close up of the hair n face you can’t see them but they’re perfectly designed to go with this dress, very Halloweeny.

I’m gonna log in and check out the balloons and scary face to see if they’re still available and still free but the hair is one of my all-time Mina faves and I love this time of year just because it allows me to wear Blair more often.  Not that it can’t be worn at any time but those “wings” just look AMAZING!

Sorry, it looks like the balloons and scary clown face are old gifts and I can’t find them.

I felt bad and so when I logged in to do a bit of sorting out I decided to pop on a pose ball and show you the shoes which come with this outfit.

They come in 3 mesh feet fits and I didn’t mention that the dress also comes in a variety of mesh body fits.  I feel better now so I can return to my pose ball in the sky and start rummaging through my invent for more goodies.

2 for 30(lds).

I had to quickly log out of SL so I left my AV stood in a shop called Chain and when I logged back in I quickly joined the group for only 30Lds and snagged the 2 group gifts.

This dress looks like a 10 out of 10, Hell I look like a 10 out of 10 LOL.

This is a really super clinging dress with a colour option of 5  great colours, BUT because I either missed it in my haste to buy it I missed the fact it’s a Maitreya fit. Ho Hum,  having said that even though there is “breakthrough” I could actually live with it.  There is a bit on the back hem, the top part of the back and there is a little bit of alpha showing at the cleavage which does sound a lot but in fact I don’t think it’s that bad and if it wasn’t for the fact I have a lot already of this figure-hugging dresses I would be keeping it. Obviously, you may have a Maitreya mesh body or a system body but know you have an Alpha which would work with this design I deffo say go for it.

This other Group Gift is a bandeau top with a choker part to it and oddly enough this one comes in 4 mesh fits so my SLink is catered for as well as HG Slink, Maitreya and 2 other fits which I obviously can’t remember because I can’t name em LOL.  Anyhow check it out for yourself because it too has a really nice 6 colour Hud option.

I also spotted a couple of Lucky Boards but by that time I was clutching my goodies and wanted to get home.

PS.  Just in case you’re curious this shop, Chain, is now sharing a shopping area with PumeC and PumeC is the skins I wear 99% of the time.  Not only do I think these are amazing skins I think they’re great value and you get STUFFED Huds with all the Appliers you need for all your needs.  Anyhow since you’re there why not check em out for yourself.

Don’t give in.(Super bargains so read the blurb).

Just as I was about the throw the towel in and give up looking for “that” ooo freebie/gift etc I put on an old pair of Ricielli shoes and YES!

Ricielli always has one of those paid for (non) hunts, so basically there is a big board and on it is what is in each hunt item and for a piddling 15Lds you can buy yourself shoes, dresses, tops, pants etc

The hunt which is going on in the main shop is actually still the Valentines one, TBH I was expecting it to have changed to a Halloween themes one but more about that later.   The TEMPTATION is so bad as there so much and I know from all the stuff I’ve got in the past its bloddy good stuff but honestly, I could just go Bat Sh*t crazy and buy the lot but this time I just bought the top LOL.  This top comes in 2 colours this dark greay and a pink one.  The shoes I am wearing but obviously, you can’t see are old “hunt” items and then there are these pants.

The one thing a lot of people may miss about the Ricielli shop is that there is a secret shop STUFFED with ALL of the old hunt items.  In fact, there are old Halloween items there as well.  Some of them are pretty old now but it’s hard to know which are old and which are the newer stock because the Ricielli stuff just doesn’t seem to age.  I picked up these leather pants from the old hunt section and for 15Lds and I thought they came in a limited 3 colour palette but in fact, you get a really good colour hud option with the ability to change the belt and hoops as well as the main body of the pants.

The top and pants come in so many mesh fits honestly you will have no problem finding the one for you or of course if you’re a non-mesh person then you will easily find an alpha to suit.  I also think when you click on the item before you buy it tells you whats in it so you can check for yourself.

PS. I couldn’t help it plus I think “Bridget” the hair I am wearing goes great with this outfit but Bridget is one of the Mina Gacha hairs that I adore.  It only costs 100Lds a try and although obviously, the colour palette you win is a risk you don’t just get 1 shade you get a whole colour palette of that shade.  Again you can try the Demo out first and if you like Bridget but don’t want to risk the colours then check out Faith and I don’t mean Faithless Babii lol.  Faith is another Mina with that curly, hippy chic look to it.
