Resting B*tch Face.(Mention of lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of Freebie, Cheapies & Gacha’s).

First, let me say that nothing in this picture is one of the freebies.

Redeaux is open for business and you should know by now that this is a great event for picking up oodles of freebies as almost every stand has a gift bag for us.  I haven’t even opened a single one of them yet but I’m looking forward to logging in later and plonking my pert behind down and working my way through the massive folder full of goodies.

There are also an awful lot of bargain-priced tempting offers, I bought a small cart packed with plants and even some clothes but I also went click crazy on the Gacha’s.  So many of them aren’t just low priced but the prizes are fab.  I won this dress, a rare with a hud, the bag, that amazing umbrella, a scooter, a wheelbarrow, an amazing rare headdress and probably more but I can’t remember now but I do know I was more than happy with my prizes and how much I spent…..cheaper than going on eBay for sure lol.

I will put the link to the Redeaux blog so you can see whats on offer to buy but of course, the gifts are the surprise.

The struggle is real.

As yet no freebies but I want you to go here and then…..

…there.

I was LM hopping and came across a very interesting building and discovered it comes from a shop called No Signal so I TPed over and yup there it is but sadly it’s a Gacha Rare win and 2 attempts later I have a drinks dispenser and a pile of comics and no building.

No Signal shares the same sim as a shop called Vibes and although neither of these shops has a gift for us, damned meanies, they do have some really nice and interesting items. I was almost tempted…then I remembered my Gacha “wins” lol.

I also want to show you the sim these 2 shop share.  The shops themselves are on 2 separate heart-shaped islands, you just walk across the water to get from one to another but the windlight and landscaping of them just make for a great photo opportunity.  I just pointed and clicked and so again even if you don’t think you I assure you can take beautiful pictures here. Plus you may also cave into temptation and treat yourself.

Hey IDIOTS! (Lesson 101).

Who doesn’t know that the latest round of The Arcade has started? and if you did have you gone Cray Cray and have ended up with so much stuff you don’t need or want then it’s time to learn how to box it up and sell it on and Seraphim have made it “Idiot” proof.

Don’t be put off by the massive rules board because it’s all very basic, ie only items from this round of The Arcade, only sell at the original price, join the Seraphim group etc nothing scary and they have even given you the easiest instructions on how to buy, 0Lds, and box up your stuff.  I might even give it a try with something.

OK, the downside is you also get to see all the things you didn’t win and really wanted so, on the one hand, you can sell stuff off but on the other, it will cost you because of all the temptation that’s at this place.

PS. In case you’re wondering I’m the “idiot” because up till now I’ve never tried to resell my wins and TBH since I can pass them on as gifts I don’t intend on starting now.

Making use !

Oh you’re gonna love this, maybe as much as I do – dunno. I failed to see this gacha machine by Lunar Seasonal Design when I visited The Garage Fair last week – blimey , not like me to walk by a gacha machine without giving it a whirl is it. Anyyyhoo low land impact and maximum cuteness, these little gardens are fabulous!

 

They all have ground attached, that is menu driven so you can choose something that fits in with your plot. You can also change the water-colour, leaves, and flowers ! $50L a pop – btw the event has a centralised landing point, so when you land, open up your map and follow the red circle to the machine – it’s a big event !

Nooooooooo! She’s done it again.

I never got around to doing a post about the Mina hair I’ve been wearing over the past week but damn as soon as I saw this I ripped off that wig and slapped this beauty on.

Mina has done it again and added that something extra which to me makes her hair something extra and in this case its hair that goes from wet to dry to wet to dry to wet etc and although you can’t see it in this picture when wet you even get drops of water running down the strands.

The wet look lasts for 135 seconds.

Or if you wanted it dried super quick just whip out the hairdryer thats included and 5 seconds late super dry and stylish hair.

I don’t really know what else to say, not that ever stops me, but yet again Mina has just added something NEW to SL hair. Every time she brings out a new hair there just seems to be something extra, whether that’s a bigger colour hud or the options in the “options tab” which allows you to change the way you style it, material and non material versions so people who want to reduce any lag issues their computer may have can still wear a great hair but without any impact on how their computer runs and on and on and now this wet to dry or dry to wet just adds another dimension.

Here is the note that comes with the hair with instructions on how to get the best out of it but really it’s easy to understand.

“The hair turns wet on contact with default SL water,
It dries off in the sun, 135 seconds to fully dry. Or use the included Blow Dryer; the hair dries within 5 seconds.

Quick command in local chat to get wet hair: /1337 get wet
Quick command in local chat to get dry hair: /1337 get dry

The hair is Fitted Mesh and works with your sliders but I also included two versions, one for the bigger breasts bodies like the SLink Hourglass and Belleza’s Freya and one for Maitreya etc.”

So as you can see you don’t even need to dunk your hair in SL water, just type the short command in chat and you can have that wet look anywhere anytime.

Soooo where do you get it from?  You can get this from FaMESHed which has started NOW and the price for this hair is 325Lds for each shade pack, 15 shades in total, 300Lds for the 13 Shade pack or you could go wild and buy the Fat Pack but I can’t remember the price of that one.

Mina has collabbed(sic) with a shop called Salt & Pepper and what a team up it’s turned out to be.  The Salt & Pepper Gacha’s theme is “Wet T-Shirt Contest” and the prizes range from the catwalk to sashes but it’s the clothing which I bet most people will be wanting to get their mitts on as it too has the “wet to dry to wet” feature and   I’ve put the link to the Seraphim Arcade picture so you can check out the total wet sexiness that’s going on……and of course all the other offerings at this event.

Both of these events start NOW which means don’t even bother!!! Sorry but let’s be honest it’s gonna be PACKED and LAG HELL so you know what I’m gonna say…LM below for Mina’s main shop because you can try the demo not just for “Sandra” but the other new hairs which I just haven’t gotten around to doing.  You can, of course, type the instructions in chat if you so which but Mina does have a lovely sim and in front of the shop is a beach so go for a swim and try it out that way as well.

I’ve not put the LM to the 2 events because it’s much easier and nicer to see whats for sale before you go and if you check out the Links you can see everything.

PS.  Faith aren’t you grateful I resisted the temptation to name this post “Wet Dreams”?

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!

Risky business.(3Ld Gacha).

Somehow I ended up at a little yardsale even though I swore I wasn’t going to Gacha again this month, just like I swore I wasn’t going to eat those chocolate dipped pretzels!  So I succumb and picked up more stuff I don’t need and then I spotted three of those new and super cheap Gacha machines, in the corner under the big red SALE sign.

You know the ones I mean the ones where the person just wants rid of the random piles of stuff they have so they shove it in a Gacha and slap such a bargain price were suckered into clicking away…I LOVE THEM!

The boxes in this picture are the actual delivery boxes and then on their own are stunning decor features as you get all that lovely details and only 2 prims.

Look at Ma Big Frilly Ass, it’s so detailed, I’d hate to have to iron this thing in RL.

Don’t worry about the fits as you get all the main mesh fits for the clothes, plus they are the sort of clothing everyone will be able to wear, and as for the shoes I think it’s the 3 main mesh feet fits but they are the medium height.

But guess what???? ONLY 3Lds a try, yup only 3 bloddy Lindens.  I had to TP away before I went click crazy because there is a lot more to win in that Gacha and I would love to win it all.

UPDATE. Because you just know when I went over to grab the LM I would get suckered into splashing out more cash on the Gacha but this time I tried the other 2, one is for 5Lds a pop and I won some really nice stuff inc a rare but the other 3Ld one must be empty as I paid but nothing was sent but I’m not bothered as it was just a few Lindens.  I’m definitely not going back again because you know I will just keep on clicking.
