Don’t read this post as it may end up costing you!

You have been warned lol.

I swear, and Faith can back me up, that apart from a dusting of snow I wasn’t going to winterise my home and now I’ve seen this addon snow pack from Hisa I’m being sorely tempted to go full snow!

This is my home or rather what it will look like if I cave in to temptation and buy this addon snow pack.

The house itself is 875Lds and the snow addon is 475Ld. WORTH IT! I may have a countless amount of homes/builds/caravans etc in my invent I’ve picked up along the way but for many years now I have only lived in 3 of them and this “The Forest Retreat” has been my home since we moved to our new sim.

I actually used our move as an excuse to buy this new home as I loved it the moment I saw it. You get amazing attention to detailling and excellent texturing for only 34 prims!

There are other snow addon packs on the platform I’m stood on so if you own another Hisa house check it out if you too want to go all wintery.

We all have the things we can’t help caving into temptation, in my case it’s homes and landscaping/decor but I think for most SLers its clothes and hair so I’m going to tempt you to spend some more money with this NEW Mina hat/hair.

I don’t take many back of the head shots as I’m rubbish at it but in this case I really just wanted to show off how how good it looks. We all remember the days when “Beanies” looked like teapot covers or helmets so to see how much they have come on since then is just so good.

Of course this isn’t the only “Beanie” hat Mina has so as always check out her mainshop to try all the demos but since this is the newest one it means you get that massive hud of hair colours. The “Style Hud” for the hat is a seperate purchase. When I first put this hair on the hat was a lovely soft grey, not the ugly “unrezzed” grey we all hate but almost a dove grey. If you want to splash a bit more cash then the style hud does offer you a big total of 15 colours/textures.

As alway try the demo out in the mainshop have a wander around to check out the other hat/beanie/hairs then when it’s gotten a bit quieter you can visit the Tannenbaum event which is where you buy this hat/hair from.

Plus I’ve added the link to the Serpahim blog as someone there has gone to a lot of effort and you can see everything for sale as this event.

Making a splash.(10Ld TeleportHub Gift).

A super quickie.

A simply fab gift for the TeleportHub Group which is why it costs the 10Lds.  Only a Maitreya fit but not too shabby on my SLink frame and it fits over my boobies very nicely so don’t let that put you off buying it.  This is a strapless dress and I now wish I’d worn a different hair to show you that but then again look at that hair colour/hat colour.

This dress comes from the “Thalia Heckrock” shop.  When you TP in it’s sorta behind you lol.

KERRCHING (100Ld Promo & New Mina).

This dress is the 100Ld Promo from Wellmade that I mentioned in my last post.

This outfit comes as separates which I didn’t know so that was a really lovely surprise as both items will team up perfectly with other items of clothing as well. You get a really big hud of colours, I forgot to count how many but you can change a total of 8 parts of this outfit.

Lots and lots of fits as well.

Now for the icing on the cake AND the cherry on top which is this NEW Mina hat/hair.

This is the second version of this “wickerwork/mesh”? hat.  It comes with a really big hud of 12 hat shades, 12 ribbon shades and a massive 70 shade pack of hair which all of her new hairs have as standard.  This super fat pack of hair colours goes from the palest of pale to the darkest of dark and a few ombres n stuff thrown in for fun. I’ve also mentioned that now there are new shades and a shade slider for you to have fun with.

BUT you need to go to Mina’s main shop for the usual reasons.  This new hair is only available at the Summerfest event which has just opened it’s doors which means it like the other big ones will be busy so try the demo out in Mina’s shop first and while you’re there check out “Carian”.  This is the same hat but styled differently.

Getting hairy. (50Ld gift(s)).

Ignore everything in this picture apart from the hair.

Obviously, if you see something else in a picture and you’re curious about it you can always drop a note to me inworld or leave a comment and I will try to do my best to remember where it came for and how much it costs or if it was a freebie if it’s still out.  In this case, that denim shirt was I believe an FLF from Pixicat, the jeans are from Blueberry, full-priced, and those bunnies also came with a price tag and I don’t think that shop is inworld at the moment just on the MP.

I don’t know where I spotted this hair but I knew it comes from a shop called “no.match” and it’s just one of many Group Gifts.

Although it’s clear that some of the hairs are Group Gifts what wasn’t clear is that ALL of the hairs in this room are Group Gifts.  I ended up taking home just 14 hair packs which is a lot less than what is on offer.  Some are “nopes” but there are a LOT of “yups”.  In the end, I may bin them all only because I’m spoilt with all my Mina’s however I think most people would find a lot they’re really pleased with.

BTW apart from this hair one other definite “keeper” is a pack of “bangs” or as we call them, fringes.  I had a quick try of them and thats exactly what they are just add ons for hairs you may have and more importantly to be added under hats, scarves etc.  I’ve not played with them as yet but it should be interesting to see how much use they turn out to be.

Sorry, I couldn’t see any demo’s, the demo sign may just not have rezzed for me because that does happen.  I think the pictures used in the no.match shop do show the hair really well and there are gifts for men as well.

PS.  I think most if not all of the hairs I got come in Fatpacks.

I cannot stress more! (NEW Mina).

Just like S@bbia, I’m always popping over to Mina’s to see if there is a new hair out and there is.

When I was walking into the shop and spotted the new hair, there is one for him and one for her, my first reacting was “baseball cap again?” As I got closer I realised that this time the cap is a bit flatter and softer so it has almost a Peaky Binders feel to it I wonder if she will continue the trend to make a “Flat Cap” which also can look amazing.

This hat/hair comes in 2 versions one for him and one for her but I think you buy them separately. TBH I didn’t think about the male version so I’m going to assume it’s the same apart from it being a bigger so it fits men’s big fat heads…no shade there lol.

I’m so glad I tried the demo on in the shop first as although you get a rather good palette of colours they’re all-natural ie brown, greys, woven textures etc and I’m rocking a pink outfit.

So I girded my loins and started to play with the colour slider and it was as easy as I had expected but I thought I’d broken the preset colour palette…then I spotted a reset button and my ass/hat was saved.  It’s easier for you to just try the demo out for yourself than it is for me to try to explain it.  The demo in the shop comes with a fully working hud so you can use that.

This hair comes from the Santa Inc event which I did pop into and I believe you have the ability to not just buy the item for yourself but to send it as a gift to someone else.  I’m not clear on the details and I didn’t loiter long but more info will be at the event itself/

Special mention to the top.  Sorry, not a freebie.  I am in a few paid-for groups and this is Caboodle gift.  Although the hud comes with a lot of cutsie wotsie pictures there are enough plain shades ones for me and you can change the colour of the sleeve from the seam down so it’s different from the main body.  There are a lot of Group gifts in the shop, some stunning halo texturing, as well as some Lucky Boards at the back and I’ve had em ALL.  I will put the LM to the shop at the end if you want to check it out as for the initial 100Lds you do get some lovely things.

Too Late! (75Ld Gacha Prize and mention of LOTS of FREEBIES).

I didn’t even get past the first “Sponsored” area of the Gacha Garden event because as soon as I saw this stunning hat/hair prize from the Doe Gacha I had to take a gamble and it’s paid off.

At only 75ld or maybe 70lds cheap enough and I won the “Ginger” pack. Obviously, all the prizes in this Gacha are the same thing just with different variations of colour and some come with leaves floating around etc.  There is a demo out for you to try.

As for the freebies, I think we all know this event by now and how most of the Gacha’s have nicely wrapped gifts for us.

UPDATE: I was planning on just logging in to LM grab but I couldn’t help myself and now I have a stuffed folder waiting for my return to sit and unpack.  I did resist buying anything else but there was 3 Gacha’s which I may just return to check out again.

St Tropez .(Freebie).

I had the perfect shoes for this retro outfit but could I find them could I heck as like so ignore my “goto” flatties and picture this look with big clunky wedges.

This outfit is the freebie, hat/hair is, of course, a Mina and as for the bag if that is a freebie and still out I will put the link to it in an update because this outfit just begs for accessories.

I really like it, the fit, the style and the pattern but then again I actually really love the bold colours and textures in the Artizana shop.  If I was a spender I’d spend in this shop but since this is a Third Life Freebie then I didn’t have to, lucky me.  There are other gifts for free groups and I’m not sure why I never showed you the glamourous bathing suit but those will be a nice surprise for you.  The Artizana group does come with a price tag, I think it’s 250Lds but check it out and check out the gifts for that group as you may think they’re worth it.

PS.  A nice touch is that this outfit also comes as separates and again I think both the top and skirt will team up well with other items from your invent.
