Backdoor at Mina’s. (New Mina hair & Freebie).

Maya is not only the name of the New Mina hair it’s also the name of the outfit I’m wearing.

At first glance, this is a simple hair with of course the now standard super big fatpack hud of unique colours that you won’t get anywhere else.

Even the “style hud” isn’t new as quite a few of Mina’s newer hairs now come with the option to play with the styling of it.  NO What is new is if you look closely at the top picture, the front “strand” has been coloured differently from the rest of the hair. I picked 2 colours to make it stand out a bit more and as you can see the blend between the 2 shades is smooth. In this bottom picture I’ve not only made the colours more subtle but look closely you can see in this case that coloured strand is just one side.  The style hud basically allows you to have 2 strands either side of your face, only 1 side or no colour strands at all.  You use the same colour hud for the main head and with a colour slider, you basically can go wild with your hair.

As always you NEED to try this for yourself and since Uber hasn’t opened it’s doors yet you may as well go to Mina’s and try it for yourself.  You get a fully interactive demo and of course, it’s LAG FREE!

While you’re there check out the New Mina Group Gift, it does cost 200Lds to join but even with that 1 hair you get your money worth however there are now a couple of lucky chairs and all the older gifts are out in the room to your right.  You also get a 10% discount on every purchase.

As for the outfit when I typed Maya into my invent not only did the New Mina pop up so did a whole set of buildings/streets and this free outfit.  I did blog it a long time ago and it’s so good I had to go check it’s still out and it is.  It does have a very ethnic/hippy chic look to it especially the baggy pants.  Usually, I’m not keen on “baggy pants” but the folds/creases etc and this dark rich texturing is why I’ve kept them all this time.

So Happy ! The Outlet

I know I am probably being a bit slow about this but there is an event by Seraphim called The Outlet – from what I can tell its a collection of really terrific designers with a discounted items for sale. I really cant tell from their web site when the items are removed or when it begins? Anyhooooo I hopped over there, grabbed up a couple of hair do’s for $125L and then I spotted THIS ! I have had the green eyed monster since Zan got her Teegle horse – I’ve watched it, how it moves..and I REALLY wanted one. Prims are a real issue though, we couldn’t have two out – and I refuse to remove my other beloved pets ! Sooo imagine my delight when I saw this at the Outlet event – mmhm a Teegle horse rezzer ! You can have it set up with a horse on display – around 38Li for the rezzing station and horse BUT you can also rez a 2Li rezzing station wooo! You get the choice of allllll types of horses to ride with all the bells & whistles on, it is a considered purchase at $3500L but a real deal if you’ve got the dosh – frankly its awesome and I am so so happpppy!

Ohhhh by the way – if you liked those Paper.Sparrow jeans & top @ Free Dove, you can get more colours and designs for both items for just $35L a pop at the mainstore. I added a couple of jeans colours and a couple more tops – at that price its a shame to miss !

What did I buy (New Feature)

Hi loves – thought it was about time we had a new feature – Zan and I both show a lot of what we have found for free or very cheap , so I’m going to show you what I actually shelled out my hard earned $$$ for. (I did find a FREE gift though!) Let me know if its of interest to you !

I can never ever resist a back drop, especially from Minimal – they are always really well done and great for building up a scene within it or using it as shown. This one is called Stockholm Street and it does come with a tree to use also. Considered purchase for me at $799 but I always use them multiple times – so a good workhorse.

Next I snapped up a Wasabi hair do called Deva, lovely scruffy casual style that has the added bonus of some star and pearl hair clips – nice touch! Great length for all the winter sweaters that are sure to be bought in the next few months. Good Hud with texture change for the slides, roots and solid hair colours.

I just couldn’t say NO! Zan and Player already know I am a sucker for anything Christmas related – and here we are, D-Lab have this adorable wooden ornament / tree out for sale – uhoh its bought ! Two versions available a coloured and a wood – ohmydays so much happening, Santa on his sleigh spinning around, a space ship circling, a train and more and more – only 9Li!

Last up is the Alaskametro Holly lipsticks – great price @ $95L – I received $7L in a refund I think as I’m in the group? Grab the FREE nail polish to go with it – in the gift box below fabulous! Looks like the first day mania of the event has slowed down as I got into the Cam Sim easily.

Thank goodness – Friday has answered my probs with finding some super boots for Fall ! Fifty Linden Friday that is – Friday have two pairs on offer for $50L each – black and a brown pair – I nabbed both as going into winter I just know I will LIVE in these. They have an optional sock top and a Hud for metal tones – brill ! Teamed them up with the new Neve Learn dress and I feel a million bucks. My hair is also new – found it by Tram at the latest round of Collabor88 such a sweet style and really perfect for all those incoming scarves and shawls.

And why not!(Freebies).

Blimey, I’m a bit overwhelmed with all the events and Black Friday bargains and in the end, so far, I’ve bought nothing.

So to take your mind off the bargains here is a completely random freebie.

I’m a “Dorayaki” which is a Japanese red bean pancake and I’ve actually made red bean paste but trust me it’s easier to just buy it lol..

When I went back to LM grab I’d forgot about this free dress.

It’s a very stylised dress with a fake and rigid look to it, pretty darn unusual and as soon as I put it and the shoes/stockings my first thought was Dominatrix/Futuristic/School Teacherish…you will know what I mean when you try it on.  Obviously, my editing has affected the colour of everything you see in the picture but the dress is black-grey depending on the windlight setting.

You get just the 1 fit of everything and I’ve literally Alpha’d myself from my neck down.  There is a selection of oddball gifts in the Blossom shop, I not only loved these 2 but also the Soft Scoop AV which has an adorable hopping AO to it!

What got me to this shop in the first place was an old hair freebie, which I couldn’t see anymore, but there are some interesting hair and pieces of furniture and decor items in this little odd ball of a shop…good fun.

PS.  I took this picture in a rental which is pretty darn amazing, just behind me is actually a sunken bath.  I can’t tell you much about it but I’ve left my AV there so when I log in I can check out these rentals properly and I might just rent it for a week as a break because at the moment our sim is sooo white I think I’m suffering from snow blindness lol.

Freebie & Promo

Popped over to Hilly Haalan last night to check out a new promo and picked up this sweet little sweater dress for free ! Also comes with the shoes which are rather classy. I can’t recall if the group is free to join or not – I think it is, it was when I joined – let me know ! The sizes are xs – L with an alpha – fitted really well over my Physique mesh body. My pose with the little doggy was from Sam Poses, group is free to join and there are quite a few group gifts on the wall. This pose was one of the group gifts and it’s just sweeeeet!

I did snap up the $99L promo – which was a proper steal if only for the shoes. I was a tad disappointed with the fit of the trousers if I’m honest – they just didn’t sit well around my waist but your mileage may vary of course depending on your shape. It’s a great deal anyway, adore the shoes and bag, the sweater is nice also. You get a Hud with six choices for each piece excluding the bag. Fits:

Belleza Venus – Isis – Freya
SLink Physique – Hourglass
