FIRST! (Lots of Freebies ‘n’ New Mina).

“First” is what people seem to love to put in youtube comments when they’re the first to make a comment…simple things simple minds I say lol.  Some may say the same of me about this headdress but it was the “first” of sooooooo many freebies at the latest round of “We Love RP” that I unpacked and as soon as I opened it and put it on I knew I was going to go for it and do a post.  You will find it on the F&M stand.

The other “First” is the Mina hair because this is the first time one of her hairs has been sold at Collab88!!!!!! Yes and about time.  Remember my last posts about small shops growing up to be big brands in SL well to me Mina’s is one of those shops although the first time I bought a hair from her shop it was pretty established already but since I’ve been a buyer and then a blogger of her hair for all of these years I’ve seen her brand name grow and grow.

As always you can try the demo out at Mina’s main shop first before you try to squeeze your AV into the Collab event because that place is usually busy esp when it’s just recently opened.  BUT I’m not going to put the Collab LM here because I really want you to go to Mina’s first and not just to try the demo out for this new hair but because Mina not only does the best range of red shades in SL but she also has a nice amount of plaited hairs, one which is very Rapunzel in style, short plaits, thin plaits, single plaits, double plaits etc so really try them out first.  This isn’t just what you see though as this newer plaited hair comes with the newer “options tab” and if you click on that you get 3 ways to wear your “bangs”.  I’ve got the fringe version on then you can wear it without and have it just fringeless or fringeless with lots of strands.  Go on try it first and with ALL Mina hair if the Hud has an “option” tab always check that out as well because more and more of the newer hairs come with “options”.

I almost forgot just another reminder that at the “We Love RP” event there seems to be a Freebie on each stand so make sure to pop over but this time I was actually pleased to see that they have pictures on the wall of the different RP sims and you just click n buy and you get the LM to the sim.  Some of these RP sims have so much imagination and thought put into them that they’re well worth a visit even if you just want to pop over to take some pictures.  If you do

PS. Never trim rampant ivy bushes with a smile on your face and a short sleeve top because your arms will be shredded and your teeth full of bugs.

Shopping at Maci’s (Freebie)

I decided to KISS (keep it simple stupid) this morning as I’m having so much fun decorating my SL home but I spotted a very bright red knitted dress which is the POE gift from a shop called Maci I thought what a great outfit to do a quick post as I’m working on my home, and I’ve also changed the sim setting to what you can see.

But I couldn’t find it but what I did find was that upstairs on the floor in the corner of a couple of rooms are Group Gifts and this headdress is one of them.  I do rather like this very traditional look and if I had been able to find the POE gift dress it would make a really Christmassy lookI’m back working on my house until I get tempted by something else because I’ve seen POE gifts I want for my home so you will see them popping up.

Be Good!(40Lds Group Gifties).

Some shop names are just begging for click bait titles and “Swallow” is one of them.

There is a reason I’m standing so far back in this picture and if you squint enough you might just be able to see why.

You finished squinting yer pervs?  OK, it’s that the open front panel on this dress is so low you can see the top of my Hoo Ha! and no you cannot wear panties but that’s the idea, this is a saucy cheeky dress that looks relatively decent but for those who like to zoom in there is this bit of rudeness.

This dress comes with a pretty extensive metal colour Hud and some of the shades positively shine as though they’ve just been polished.  I’m SL old enough to remember you used to have to pay a fortune for something that has a slight resemblance of metal but clothing in SL has come a long way.

Now check out my hair, Lily, and yes you’ve guessed it’s a Mina.  Normally I’d say go to the main shop and try other hairs on till you find the one that makes you go “Oooo” but there isn’t another hair like this, apart from an old one which I do believe was a gift and now I don’t know if that is on sale but it’s more a “statement” hair and this is my “disclaimer” lol.    This one comes with the now standard bigger colour Hud, etc etc but also the options tab lets you remove the strand over your face but I really like that whisp so it stays.

Lily is available @Uber and I wish you the best of luck because that place has been jam packed since it opened but it’s open till the 23rds Sep and so plenty of time to wait for it to calm down and of course you can check the demo out in Mina’s main shop first.

Back to the GG’s.  It only cost 40Lds to join the Swallow Group and the GG’s are well worth it.  This strappy emm underwear/beachwear/clubbing wear? has the same stunning metallic shine and also the massive colour hud options and I’m sorry I’ve not shown you more of them but you have everything from jet black to girlie pink.  The rest of the GG’s in this shop is mainly jewelry with some flashy sunglasses and a super cute Butterfly hat/headdress but I ran out of time plus TBH the hat didn’t go with this hair and I have Bento hands and the jewelry doesn’t work too well with Bento hands.

DRAT, there aren’t demos for these 2 outfits, but a nice show of all the colours so here is the extensive list.

Purple, pink & blue.(Freebie).

Blimey the UK has been basking in almost summer weather even “Oop North” as the Southerners like to say lol.  So I’ve been pottering in the garden then doing this quick post before settling down to a crappy horror movie in the middle of a Sunday afternoon,  I even have the blinds drawn and a bag of popcorn.  So I hope you too are doing something just for yourself even if it’s hunting for good stuff in SL.

Check out this FREE floral headdress from the Bauhaus Movement shop.

Simply gorgeous and you get 3 shades, I’ll let you guess which ones those are.  Nice to see that there is a mans gift set out as well which is a pair of goggles, of course I grabbed them as well, just because they’re for men doesn’t mean we can’t wear em and if they’re the same quality as this headdress then another excellent gift from Bauhaus.

PS Crap movie of the Day is “Bound to Vengeance”.

Sim setting 2357(25Ld Tuesday).

I decided to take a break and work my way through the “25Ld Tuesday” list.  This is obviously a weekly event and it’s as obvious that the cost for everything is just 25Lds and in the past, I have found some amazing things at this super price.

xxxcot

This Walnut boat/cot/snuggle bunny thingy (turns out it’s a Fairy Bed) comes from Luas.  The examples they have in the shop are tiny but when you buy it you get this full sized AV one. Full sized it’s only 6 prims but I’m going to shrink mine right back down to the tinnie tiny size and either have it floating on our lake or nestled somewhere hidden in a shrub on our sim because shrunk right down it’s only 2 prims and super cute.

You actually get 2 options to buy 1 with single poses and 1 for couples I, of course, got the single poses one and it has some really good poses in it! Super nice, works really well with my AV.  Good poses are always a boost but of course, when shrunk down I won’t be able to use them.

I also never miss the opportunity to pick up the Belle Epoque 25LD  offer either which in this case is this over the top headdress.

xxxcotuse

It’s like a full English garden on “ya heed”! lol.   As you will know on the whole I’m not into bags and jewelry etc but when it comes to flowers in my hair I have a folder STUFFED with them I just can’t help it as in RL flowers in my hair, as well as ruffled blouses, knitted hats, and roll necked tops on me, look absolutely ridiculous on me so in SL I love wearing flowers in my hair.

PS to get the list just slap the sub board of one of the shops involved in it as I usually get a weekly notice this way or of course you can join the 25Ld Tue group.

PS I also picked up a couple of other 25Ld items but hey ho I like to leave a surprise of 2 for you to find for yourself.

No no NOT the dress!(Freebie).

Sorry, although I would be so happy to be able to bring you such a glorious dress as a freebie this one is definitely a paid for one.

xxxdressuse

So I was spending a few mins in my home rezzing some more decor items out because you can never have too much clutter in your life, and I came across some items from Aisling and since they are so good I decided to do a quick TP and check out if they’re still there and they are.  Home decor items, low prim and high quality, a mix of things ie rug with cute rat poking it’s head out, some lamps and the items I was rezzing are some extremely realistic houseplants which at only 1 prim and many shades I will be placing everywhere.  There is even a lucky tub and I won a rotten apple…err not lucky tub for me then.

The one freebie I grabbed because I still have the others tucked away is this stunningly beautiful headdress of big fat Spring Roses.

xxxdressuse2

As always I rezzed a copy of this on the ground to prim count and Holy Carp only 1 prim! So not only a stunning wearable but an equally stunning decor item.

I would have loved to show you them all but yet as always a rush in RL means I’ve had so little time and it’s such a shame as the other gifts set out are so good so make sure to check them out for yourself.

Anyhow, I’m taking a work day and SL day off tomorrow, although since New Year’s day I’ve stuck to my healthy(ish) diet plan tomorrow is my last blow out before I stick more rigidly to my diet because DAMNIT I want to be back into my skinnies!

PS if you’re interested then the dress is from Junbug.
