My Secret Sanctuary – it won !

As always I had popped over to Dench Designs, just to see if anything new was out – and it was hurrah! This is “My Secret Sanctuary” and its just fabulous. Join the group (its free to do so) and you can grab this set for just $60L – full price is $120L – you get the whole shebang – tree, table, chairs, the grassy base, tea set and flowers surrounding. Its just 16Li *faint* – I already had a patio set out (by Dench Designs!) and once I had added up the Li it had taken to plant around it, lay a patio base etc etc – it was around the 30Li mark. Saved myself some Li and $$$ ! Its such a beautiful style, like its been in the garden for years and years, soft moss covering areas, the base makes it really simple to blend in with your existing garden.

Close up of the tea set ❤ The animations are just right too, lots of poses to enjoy the garden.

Of course it wouldn’t be Dench Designs if there weren’t a few rezzable add-ons right? I’ll leave that for you to find out – my photos is as it comes – BUT – can you spot the one thing I added from the rez menu?! You will find this outside the shop with a big sign saying NEW lit up above it – cant miss it !

Guess who’s back…MINA of course. (New Group Gift).

Mina (Nakamura) the Boss Lady of Mina’s hairs decided to take a break over Christmas and the New Year so she could come back to SL refreshed and I’m going to assume with a shed load of fresh new designs.  I must admit I’d was having withdrawal symptoms and had been checking her shop on an almost daily basis for the past week to see if there was something new so to get a notice this morning about a NEW Group Gift made me stay inworld just a bit longer when I should have logged out and logged into RL.

When I first got it I thought “wait a mo “Harper” isn’t that an old hair?” and it is but this is the updated version.  I’ve not tried on the old Harper as a comparison, I’ve just binned it now that I have this newer one, out with the old and in with the new as I say.  I suspect that since there was nothing wrong with the old Harper as Mina’s hairs do seem to last the test of time what is updated is the colour pack.

For the initial 200Lds it costs to join the Mina VIP Group you get this hair, only in the blonde shades but the blondes go from in my opinion light brown to creamy light brown…doesn’t matter as you can try the demo before you join the group.

If this hair tempts you but you want more for your Lindens then check out the area to the right of the desk, at the base of the stairs and there you will find a wall of older and yet still wearable Group Gifts.  There is hair for both men and women BUT take them all.  Although Mina does have male hair upstairs a lot of her female hair is as good on him and her. So for your initial 200Lds, you can score a lot of very wearable long-lasting hair.

Can I also remind you that there are also Gacha’s in the Mina shop.  I was wandering SL yesterday and I was in a clothes shop which actually had 2 Mina Gacha’s in the shop.  This was the first time I’ve seen Mina’s Gacha’s elsewhere so it was a reminder to me to remind you to check those out.  None of them is over 100Lds, in fact, I think they average 75Lds for some great hair, some of my fav hairs come from Gacha wins and in fact Kismet strikes because I went and checked and “Inkie” the hair I wore in my last post is a Gacha win, only 75Lds etc…demos are out for Gacha wins just in case you want to make double sure it will suit you.

PS, I think it’s a 10% discount you get if you buy any hair from Mina if you’re wearing your Group Tag and of course there are 2 Lucky Chairs as well.

Hell YES, it’s time to spend.(Bargains).

When I got the notice that Mina Nakamura has set out all the old Group Gifts for us to get it was a case of “Hell YES”.

Each hair is what I would term “wearable” in that you wear the hair the hair doesn’t wear you. Simple, understated with excellent texturing.

This raggy short hair is super sweet.

I’ve kept to the brown range but she has colours from Pitch Black to Platinum and although as a RL brunette I veer towards the browns her blondes and esp her reds are just gorgeous.  Don’t get me started on the Ombres!

I know that EVERY blinking blog out there and inworld freebie, bargain and discount group will be blasting these all over the place.

HOLD YER HORSES, because although I’m only showing you 4 there is MORE because not only is there a really sweet but bloodied version of Arwen that has been out a little while as a Halloween Group Gift there is also 4 Group Gift of MENS HAIR!  The icing on the cake is that not only does Mina do great women’s hairs but she also does great men’s hair and if I’m honest a lot of the women/men hairs look great on both sexes so basically for the 200Lds joining fee you get 8 stunning hairs AND the bloodies Arwen AND if you remain in the Mina group then 10% off all future purchases.

OKAY confession time, because I was so excited about these gifts and since I probably own ever Mina hair I just selected these from my invent and I’m now just about to log in to LM grab and see if there is any restrictions on the colour palettes you get with these GG’s but as I said it doesn’t really matter as I think every shade it just

So stop being mean and go spend some Lindens.

UPDATE Because of 2 things, I can’t find them in the shop so I’ve dropped one of the managers a note asking where they are but I think it’s a case of when you join the VIP Group they could be in the notices etc BUT there is NO rush as the old GG’s are now going to be available on a permanent basis! Plus as I was camming and scanning the shop even though I know there is an upstairs with lots of hair there is now even more and I’ve spotted several of my fav hairs up there.  I think sometimes the upstairs is a bit overlooked so once I know where the GG’s are and you pop over to check them out check out upstairs.

PS Taken in my Nams setting so this is what I see when I SL.

Follow Us/Me Again.

I’m starting to feel the Romance, finally.  For the men out there in SL or RL FFS give your OH a clue as to what you would like or else don’t sulk if you get nothing! as for mine he’s going to get a lovely package of the yummiest Brownies ever and if he knows whats good for him he will SHARE.

I’ve just done some of the larger Romantic items from Follow Us but not everyone has either the budget, prims or simply just prefer their love tokens to be more subtle and everything you need is here.

A simple Champers bucket.  Look closely and you can even see the bubbles in the glasses in SL they actually float upto the top so sweet.  There is a black bucket version and one with a glass of pink Champers and the traditional colour.

However there is no reason why you should just look at whats available in the Valentine House as there are equally as sweet and emm cheeky items inside the Mainshop.  This very sauce beauty box full of toys will either make her/him giggle but then again maybe it might also give your partner some very nice ideas.  The lid opens and shuts which means you can keep this out on your bedstand or dressing table so the contents are descretely hidden until you click the lid.

Champ5

There is a whole collection of trays in the main shop which again for those on a budget or prim allowance will be a delightful treat.

Champ2

This is why I love blogging Follow Us items, there always seems to be something that makes me chuckle.  This tray almost looks practical enough to put in your home or office until you look more closely.  Just beside the Teddy’s foot is some Condoms LOL  If you check out the pictures in front the one of the toddler having a tantrum is a good reminder to use those condoms LOL.  The photos come blank which you can see in the 3rd one but I decided to try to pop some pictures in them to see how easy it was and yup trust me if I can do it then you can too.

Now I’ve gone back for another look around the Valentine home and Laurent83 Waco is so sneaky, trays of heart-shaped cookies, boxes of chocolates lots of stuffed Teddies and on and on and sneakily placed amongst all of this sweetness is a bit of cheeky rudeness.  A box of chocolates and a certain pleasuring object, etc.  So you can be as suggestive or as sweet as you wish.

For those of you on an even smaller budget then make sure to either think about joining the Follow Us group which only cost 40Lds and there are oodles of GG’s set out or log into Laurents Marketplace shop.  He has some lovely items starting from just a single Linden and there is one of the simplest but I think sweetest gift you can give to either sex, Scrabble words on the stand which spells out “I l♥ve you”.

Again you’re going to shop inworld make sure to wear your Group Tag to get 20% discount on the Valentines goodies.
