It’s still Christmas. (15Ld Hunt & New Mina&Mention of Freebie).

I love the windlight setting on the Mina sim, it’s so freaking flattering.  I’m always tempted to drop her a note and ask for the details but she is one busy lady and I hate to bother her.

I’m still wearing jeans and glasses from my last post but the top I was wearing came from Ricielli and since it’s Spring/Easter time I popped over hoping that Ricielli has another one of their excellent hunts on and they do but it’s still the Christmas gifts.

My disappointment at nothing new was sweetened by the 2 prizes I bought.  As this is a paid for hunt there is a big poster with pictures of what’s in each box and more importantly, the sizes as not all the clothing comes in all the main mesh fits.  The clothes are shop quality.  I will say I was surprised as this top is supposed to be a mint colour and I don’t know if the sim lighting has changed it, doubtful, but it’s not mint.  NO complaints as I love this colour and down the back it has a flattened hoodie.

The second picture shows the other “prize” I treated myself to and this one deffo comes in the 2 colours the picture shows, this brown and a lovely dark green.

If you don’t know Ricielli then you won’t know that all of the old hunt gifts are stashed away in one of the buildings.  Still at the 15Lds prices but such a variety of casual wear, club wear, shoes, skirts etc.  To get there head out of the main shop and you will see a signpost, just click on the one for the emmm I think it said shoes/sale/discount etc something like that.

More hats now.

As you can see from these two pictures the hat/hair is very similar.  Hazel is the bottom picture and Fleur is the top.  Fleur is the newest hair although Hazel was only brought out a couple of weeks ago.

I will admit I much prefer Hazel, there is a ponytail down the back which you can even change the length of using the “style hud” but it’s the tendrils that frame your face I like the best and they too can be changed by using the hud.

Fleur, top picture, is so new you can only buy her from the Kustom9 event and again comes with a styling hud which is this case allows you to change the way the hair hangs down ie over one shouldn’t left or right or just simply hanging down the back.

PS.  I almost forgot there is a FREEBIE in the Ricielli shop, the LM takes you right next to it.  This is a stunning freebie but I know I’ve blogged it at least twice so I don’t really want to do it again.

I wasn’t going to do this post butttttt…(New Mina & Bargains.)

Although you can’t really see it I am carrying a weekend bag in my hand and that’s because I’m off for a couple of days, Woo Hoo.  Nothing exciting though and looking at the rain tipping down outside it’s going to be a very damp couple of days away but even that can have its own charm.  So I will be back either on Mon or Tue and until then be safe have fun and be kind to yourself.

I wasn’t going to do a post I was just killing some time before my ride turns up  when I remembered that when I was pulling a pose outside of Mina’s main shop there was a bit of a crowd so once I’d scored myself some bargains I went over to find out what was going on.

It’s a NEW hair which let’s face it Mina has to be one of the most productive hair makers in SL because she just keeps on coming out with new hair all the time and never seems to stint on the quality or design and yes this is a HAT HAIR!

“Hazel” comes with a fantastic ball cap style hat and the extras are 3 HUDS! One for your hair colour, one to have your hair styled different ways ie change the length of the ponytail and the tendrils framing your face, and the third one to change the colour of the cap and the peak.  All of the colours are subtle shades.  Actually, the hat at a pinch would make a great horse riding hat, you do get a black shade, and it has that nob on the top which is a standard design for horse riding hats and although the peak is longer than you would find on a helmet you could get away with it, all I need now is a horsey.

As for the bargains, the jacket is a new GG from Santino Design and it only costs 10Lds to join the group.  There are a few group gifts out inc this new one and also lots and lots of bargains both downstairs and upstairs, I know for a fact I have a few items from this shop esp some pants which have turned out to be really handy items.

DISCLAIMER.  Obviously, the sim setting and editing have changed the colour of the jacket but you will see from the picture in the shop it’s a more goldie gold and although in the picture they have this gold colour and a blue/teal colour I can only see one in the pack.

It’s about time.(Mina’s Gacha Wins 100Lds or less).

I’m not going to blab on much because I do enough of it but I’ve mentioned a few times that in Mina’s mainshop there are Gachas and all are either 100Ld and in 1 case 75Lds and finally here is just an example to tease you.

Some of my fav goto hairs are Gacha wins.

Although you have to take your chances on the colours you do get the full colour pallet for that shade.  I think the 75Ld one is the only one which is limited in someway.

I’ve stuck to the mid browns tones but honestly, for example, the brown pallet goes from dark blonde to darkest brown.  I used to own a hair pack from a shop long gone in SL and in those days you didn’t have Huds and so this folder had 100’s  of hair and each a supposedly different shades in it but I could have binned almost all of them because the difference in the shading was almost non-existent but this is not the case with Mina’s hairs.

The weird thing is is that I rarely see Mina’s hairs in the yardsales so basically people must just be so happy with their wins there isn’t a big second-hand market for them.

I’m not even showing you them all as there are about 10 or 12 Gacha’s inc 2 hat/hair Gachas, although there are 3 styles of hats, of course, you can try before you buy because demos are available.  For 100Lds or less you can’t find finer hair.

PHEW, I can finally clear these pictures out of my folder now LOL.
