I don’t know why I bother! (Free Mina hair).

I rarely do a picture of me either sitting down or lying down as I just look weird so I’ve wasted enough time trying yet again to take that sitting picture and so I’ve given up and stood up.

A NEW FREE MINA called Hannah.  This is a pretty new hair so she’s not just passing off her old stock, having said that most of my “goto” hairs are years old because they are still 100% quality and like all of her hair just last the test of time.  Even more generous than it being one of her newer hairs is that you get more than the 1 shade you I do believe you get the “essentials” pack which gives you 13 shades!  Everything from the blackest of blacks to the blondes of blondes and to top that off this hair also has an “option” which is to have a few strands of hair across your face or not as I’m wearing it in this picture.  It’s these touches that give Mina’s hair that natural touch and not a slapped on wiggy look.

Mina Nakamura is like many people trying to make a living in SL so for her to give such generous freebies is truly generous.  So when she does give a good un it’s because she wants to say thanks and in this case, this is a gift to be picked up from the SLB15 celebration that is going on at the moment.  The notice also says that the items for sale at this event also have a 20% discount on them.

Here is the BUT, good luck getting in!  I’ve been trying all morning and failed all morning.  The LM given should take you right to the Mina stand though so keep on trying as it will calm down at some stage.

This outfit comes from the Monomania shop and that satiny frill texturing is so amazingl real it’s freaky.  It’s a two-piece, woo hoo, and plenty of mesh sizes.

Now I’m LM grabbing at Monomania I’ve been looking at all the other gifts for the different groups, you find them upstairs and there is also a couple of LBs, so if you don’t like this outfit still pop over as there are a few other pieces that look as though they’re going to be really good.

Just this.(Dollarbie).

So I had a day off yesterday and as much as I would like to say I spent it lounging and lunching and lazying like a lady I spent it cleaning, scrubbing and cursing like a skivvy!  Such is life but instead of taking pictures of the really pretty freebies AND NEW MINA FREEEEEEE HAIR I took a quick snap of this chair.

One of the notices I got was from a shop called “also known as” and I don’t think I’d even heard that name before and since I’m curious and the note also showed the 2 gifts in the shop and although the other gift is a “cabin” it was this chair that I was hoping was as good as it looked in their picture…and it is.  I’ve actually quickly logged in and moved it because I wanted to try to get the light from the outside to shine through the slats because even with all of that detailing it’s only 2prims!  Although there are a total of 6 poses for me this is more of a statement piece.

The group costs 1Ld to join and as mentioned there is a “cabin” as well and the reason I’ve put that in brackets is that to me cabin makes me think of something old and rustic whilst this is a modern cube, with glass sliding doors etc

PS.  Will be logging back in soon, I need coffee, and will show you some fab new clothing and that new FREE Mina I’ve teased you with.

Sigh! (Freebie & Hashtag Event).

Yes I am at this moment looking at the rain and debating if I should rain dodge and pop to the shops or just put my snuggling clothes on, grab a cat and settle down for a quiet afternoon.

I was at the Hashtag event, lots of stalls with 0,5 or 10Ld gifts and I think by now most people know that sometimes the gifts can be hit or miss but also sometimes it’s nice to splash a few Lindens and you never know, but with this dress you don’t need to guess or even spend any Lindens as this is a FREE to join Papermoon group gift.  There is a little Papermoon shop at the Hashtag event and you will find it in there.

And that’s it..

UPDATE.  In the end I changed into my baggy, saggy snuggling clothes but I didn’t grab a cat as they have claws and bad attitudes then settled down to mooching SL.  Because this is the last thing I was wearing I kept it on and actually I liked this even better as when moving from one windlight setting to another the “luminosity” of the dress changed.  In some settings, it was glowier(sic) than a glowstick and in others, the lacy effect looked vintage.

Pas de regrets.(Inc a Freebie).

Look what I bought.

The only thing I will say about this skybox is it not too bad prim wise, but still a lot of prims if you’re prim conscious, and with a price tag of 2500Lds hardly keeping in my Cheap B* reputation.  The thing is when you LOVE it and you will use it then it’s worth paying for and although our sim is stunning at the moment we don’t have a beach and I think a beach is missing and so I think both Faith and I will find having this on our sim will be very handy.

But never fear the Cheap B* is still here, with this outfit.

This is just one of them at the Maci shop.  Lots of sizes.  You will find this and other gifts on the sides of the column….you will see what I mean when you TP there.

Multipul Choice Question.(Freebie).

Whats in the box?

  1. Kim Kardashians Bum.
  2. A box of sugar-free, guilt-free chocolates that actually taste amazing.
  3. A Maitreya top with a hud which is excellent and for me unwearable.

If you get it wrong you need to hang you Lelutka/Catwa/System head in shame.

I did try to take a picture of the top but with my SLink body, I couldn’t really get a good enough fit esp since I also wanted to get a close up of the texturing which is pretty darn good.  A nice amount of colours in the hud and although I couldn’t wear it again you may have the right mesh bod or an alpha that you can use.

A totally new shop to me called “Spectacledchic” and yes I did think I would find it full of glasses but nope, it’s a very small shop with an even smaller selection of clothing but very nice stuff.  This does seem to be slightly different in that you can only buy fat packs so the prices can appear to be a bit steep (I think they average 500Lds) but you do get a really interesting selection of textures and colours.  There is a pack of sheer blouses which I have to say is pretty darn tempting but because it’s 500Lds and for some reason it also looks like everything is gonna just be a Maitreya fit.  I can only hope that as the shop grows, which I’m sure it will, the owner will expand the mesh fits as well.

Although I had noticed the restricted fits I still decided to try my hand at the Gacha (75Lds) as lots of the styles look as though I could make them work and in fact the skirt I won is wearable it’s not the prize I had wanted to wear.

Beach Life Free

Yippppppee ! Dench Designs has a new group gift for you – word of warning though – you wont want to leave it – ever! This is the beach hut, free to group members and the group is free to join. It’s just fantastic – seriously – I set mine up on my faux beach and felt so relaxed with the sound effects playing (you can turn them off if you prefer) Packed full of fahhhhbulous poses in the deck chairs, the couch, the kitchenette, the dining area and even ON THE ROOF ! I love the set up of Dench’s items – you can rez as much or as little of the props as you like – I haven’t rezzed the lights or the fire-pit above – there is lots to play with !

Here is a little taster – but head over and grab your own copy. It’s a proper little beach hut – the windows can be closed and a sheer curtain gives you some privacy if you pull it across. Of courrrrse you also have a choice of fabrics for the hut, the couch, and even the table-cloth – READ the information note to get the best out of it. I might decide to stay here for the whole summer ❤ Thank you Amanda.

Ohhh there is a hunt on atm also – The Silk Road – great prize if you find it – hint right by the front entrance.

Spam “n” Blogg (10Ld GG)

SPAM

OMEGERD 8 year of RL/SL highs and lows, losses and gains and yet still seems so fresh and new.  We share a sim but it’s rare that we spend any quality time together, and no were not an SL couple that title belongs to Faiths precious PD (Player Dagostino) who has always been a constant in her and in a much quieter way my SL life.  We are polar opposites and yet still have so much in common plus we know how the other person thinks, the sort of thing they like etc we work so well together.  It’s been a joy.

And yes on most days Faith gets a note from me titled either “Spam”, “Spam n Blogg” “Spam n Blogg n Sim”,”Sim” or even just “Blogg” and in this way, I not only bore the T*ts off her with my rambling spam notes but we can keep up to date with anything that’s a joint endeavour.

BLOGG

She’s also right that sometimes she gets a note off me and I get a note off her which says “Back off Biatch” when it’s something we really want to blog and hopefully never have repeat posts, unless I do an old post as it’s still out and still brill.

Sooo today’s “Back off Biatch” note is for this excellent Belle Epoque gift and for once it FITS, almost!

You get a generous 16 colour hud, 8 pastels, and 8 stronger colours.

This green shade, my fav colour, shows off the pleating.  A lovely prim and proper dress.  You do get only the 1 size and although it doesn’t say it I think most things are a Maitreya fit.  There is just a small bit of breakthrough on the back but it’s nothing and of course if you don’t wear a mesh body then it’s of a style that would be easy to find an Alpha to fit.

The Belle Epoque group is only 10Lds to join and this is the new GG’s which is with the old GG’s so if you’ve not checked them out before it’s time to do it.  And of course there is now 5, I think, lucky boards just behind me in the lovely landscaped garden area.

If you have another 10Lds to spare then check out the Teleport Hub gift.  It’s not new and I have blogged it previously but this group is pretty good for not just telling about about freebies and bargains but a lot of shops have gifts out for this group.
