PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies.

This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one.

I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.

This new hair is only out at Kustom 9 so don’t even bother trying to get in there esp as it’s only just opened so it’s gonna be heaving!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog because you can see whats up for sale at this event and as always you can use the Mina Mainshop to go check the demo out in lag-free heaven.

PS.  I don’t bang on about it enough but the Group Membership for Mina’s in only 200Lds and she’s recently added a new hair to the room that has all of the shop quality hairs in it.

The dress is the dollarbie and there is a reason the hem is slightly cropped in the picture and I bet you can guess why?  Yup no SLink fit but you do get a fit for SLink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya & Isis and although I could find a nice fit it wasn’t a perfect fit.  Again you may have the mesh bod that does fit or of course you don’t even use one and have an alpha in your invent which will work.  The sleeves are attached as well which is a lovely touch but that might make a struggle if you do go for your own Alpha.

You might want to rush as obviously this is a lovely Valentines pressie off Spirit but it is only on the MP(Marketplace) and it might be pulled soon as Valentines is well and truly over.

You can skip all of this part as it’s just boring waffling…I’m good at that.

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and remember even if you’re on your own there is no reason why you shouldn’t make sure you have a treat to spoil yourself or in my case our cat because we remembered it was his RL BD on Valentines lol. So me and my OH probably spent more on him than each other plus we spring cleaned the house so let’s face it Valentines for a lot of people is overrated lol.

I’ve also been MIA because it was also my RL BD(say that so it rhymes) and I’ve had a lovely time which has only been slightly marred by Windows desperately trying to force me to do a window 10 update even changing my computers setting to allow it!  I won and Windows lost, this round at least lol but if you don’t want the windows update then check they haven’t changed your settings.

I’m also trying to sort out sim out, I should have maybe started next week rather than this as we stripped it all back and I started to rezz away but then had to stop as RL was fun, fun and more fun but now I need to get sorted and get all those bald sim patches filled, get my new studio sorted and make my mind up what house I’m finally going to live in for the next several months which I have to say is much more fun in SL than RL lol.

New Mina.(and small Freebie).

I have a bugbear and it’s when someone SCREAM’S FREEBIE in their title and they have a stunning picture of an outfit or furniture and it turns out the FREEBIE is a tiny little thing, a mouthie, thingamajig or  a whatsit etc so basically they’ve used FREEBIE as click bait.

So the “small freebie” in the title is the eyes, look deep into my Poetic Colour eyes…ignore the hair just look at my eyes!

You get a big pack of the one shade but so many sizes and of course, they’re mesh eyes.

NOW you can drool over the hair which sadly isn’t a freebie but it is a new Mina.

In the Mina shop, there is a lot of this style of hair, long, loose, natural drapey big hair without the wiggy/helmet look. Every Mina hair is different but sometimes she takes what works with a hair and works it into another hair which is why I always put her main shop LM so if you’re on a budget you can try all the hairs on before you find the one that sings to your heart.

BUT this one not only comes with the brilliant texturing and thickness but you can wear it 4 ways AND it comes with the newer 15 shades in each shade packs Hud and only 279Lds!

Slightly hyperventilating here.  You can wear cheap clothes, you can wear cheap shoes but you cannot wear cheap skin or hair so even if you invest in one paid for hair pack or skin with this much bigger colour palette you get all you need.

So the “options”(on the Hud you click the options tab) are thick strands down the front of both shoulders, one strand only down either left or right or hair fully over the shoulder…yes clear as mud but of course always try out the demo’s first even if you like how this hair looks on me you must always try on hair/skin etc for yourself to make sure it suits your AV.

As it happens I didn’t notice the Demo in Mina’s mainshop on my last visit but it really should be there as she’s pretty good at putting the Demo’s and LM’s out for her new stock.  Only available at Kustom9 at the mo and it’s packed! but for once I’ve got in pretty early so you have till the 10th April before this event is over.

UPDATE I was right and Mina has been prompt and “June” is now in her mainshop for you to try the demo on first.

999&9=Kustom9 and a whole shed load of 9’s

Finally got myself over to Kustom9 not only because there is a new Mina but also a SHED load of gifties out for just 9Lds each.  So I clicked and clicked and I even treated myself to a couple of Gacha’s and won not just a cute deer for our sim but the Rare skybox from Heikei(anyone wants a skybox? I have way too many so if you want it just drop me a note).


I didn’t buy everything as when you click on the gift boxes for the most part they tell you what is in them so since I’m not a big jewelry or bag wearer I gave those a miss. So I’ve got some of the decor items scattered around but check out my “look of the day”.


Ignore the eyes! not from this event and I don’t think I will be wearing them again as they’re just weird.  OK believe it or not that’s a MINA for just 9LDs and as standard even with her special offers you get the full pack of brown shades and that might just be 5 shades but they are different, I’ve had hair colour packs where you couldn’t even see any difference.  So you have the brown going from light to dark and again ONLY 9Ld!  If you do have some Lindens to spend then check out the last picture for the full priced Mina but not everyone has or wants to spend a lot of money on their SL lives so to be able to give something to those on a budget is absolutely wonderful.  Now check out my “rack” lol.  This figure hugging top is from Kitja and it’s gorgeous a real keeper and then when I put on the jeans from the Spirit stall I was so pleased that they make a great match and then the shoes off the Momento stall again turn out to be the icing on the cake…or the look of the day.


I’m keeping these all and I don’t know if anyone does it but we should do it more which is to keep everything that makes a great look in the same folder.  It makes getting dressed in SL so much quicker and easier.  You used to be able to drag and drop the whole contents of your folder onto yourself and Voila you were dressed from head to toe but that was well before Mesh body bits.

Which has just reminded me, the jeans and top come in mesh body fits and the shoes SLink and Maitreya…damn I’m going to have to log back in to check….yes the top and jeans are for SLink Original/ Hourglass and Maitreya Lara sizing but also the jeans and the shoes are for SLink and Maitreya feet.   If you don’t have a mesh body don’t let that put you off picking these up as it just means you will have to rummage in your invent for an alpha to fit and chances are they will fit you perfectly fine.


Be warned there is some new designs at this round of Kustom9 which got me looking and counting my Lindens so if you’re easily tempted you might just want to rush in grab the 9Ld gifts and rush out but if you want to stand out with some pretty darn good new looks then treat yourself.

Here is the full priced Mina called Estelle and TBH with such a generous gift sat there I think Mina is probably shooting herself in the foot but again if you have Lindens to spend plus you want hair in another shade pack then try

Indecent haste, Freebie n New Mina Hair.

I was already dressed with a great outfit to show you when a notice came off Zee (zuleicca) one of the managers of the shopping sim Nouveaux about a new shop to their sim called Sorbet owned and run by bbcrumbs (xantheanne) and as soon as I checked out the pink cuteness I dropped what I was doing and ran to grab it and then dropped Faith a note to back off it was MINE ALL MINE!


Just so sweet and as much as I’m still snuggling in my winter woolies in SL and RL this pink prettiness just warmed my heart up.  This dress comes in just the 3 standard mesh dresses and it says they won’t go with mesh bodies which is didn’t but that’s hardly an issue and even I spend about 90% of my SL time in my normal AV and not wearing my mesh body in any case. OK at this moment this is a very small shop in fact all there is is 2 outfits this dress but in other colours and a rather pretty skirt.  If this is the start of a new venture in SL then it’s a brilliant start but lets hope there is more like this to come.

Weirdly enough I’ve gone a bit pink mad because the skin is just one of my old ones from Pink Fuel which I adore not just for its prettiness but Pink Fuel has cornered the market for the sweetest sexiest skins that come with appliers/tattoo layers which will give you 6 packs to die for.  So once I’m back inworld I’m going to pop over there and hope that there is a special deal on because they’re not cheap skins but I might just get tempted.

However much more affordable is of course the Mina hair called  Chloe which is available @Kustom9.  I have to be honest and say that if it wasn’t for Mina hairs being a regular at the Kustom9 event it’s not one I make time to visit which would be a shame this time because I’ve seen whats there and there is so much tempting me inc Gacha’s so I’m definitely heading back there but this time I’m hoping it’s calmed down because it’s one popular event.

I was right and wrong, there are ooodles of gifts at the latest round of Kustom9 but I was wrong that they are for free but at 9Lds each only so cheap and so worth it.

I will admit that although I grabbed everything time is so limited for me I’m just showing you a full outfit I made.  Obviously the gifts even though you pay for them don’t come with demos but sometimes you just have to go by knowing the shop that is offering the gift and trust that it’s going to be a goodie.


Taken in my nams setting but I do believe a lamp I have in my bedroom will affect the actual colours but not by much, this isn’t cheap tat!  I’ll list the stall that I got each item from so the dress=ohayo, necklace=Zenith, bracelets=Ninety, hair=Mithral and shoes-N-Core.


And then a zoom down to get closer to the N-core gifts.  I’ve got the SLink ones on but this gift comes in all of the mesh feet available.

And then just before I logged out I decided to sort through my stuff and yes I’ll be honest I threw out what I won’t ever use again and renamed what I will and I came across these other Kustom9 9Lds gifts and I’m so glad I do always go through my folders before I click delete.


Again hair, jumper, jeans and boots all 9Lds each.  I’m not keeping 1 item from this and I bet you lot can guess what it is but that doesn’t mean to say the quality is 100% it just means I have too many of them and I prefer the ones I have.  Special mention to those shoes as I do believe that they’re unisexed.  I had tried them on and didn’t really give them much of a thought till now and how wrong was I because they look so good with these jeans and probably all jeans plus they come with a socks on and off version and I loved the sock version as they will go great with a skirt or shorts and of course the non sock version perfect for jeans.  As before I will list the shop stall that they came off BUT please try the rest as well.  This is another hair, an adorable clutch bag and even an AO.  Sometimes it’s nice just to grab everything and then spend some time unpacking and sorting stuff out it feeds my OCD! Sweater=Pixicat, Hair=Blues, Boots GB Gabriel, Jeans=Spirit.

FFS! New Mina & Super Halloween Bargain!!!

Don’t I make a super cute ginger??? I only wish I was as brave in RL because I would dye my hair this glorious colour.

As you can tell from the name Josef is a male hair but the reality is a lot of the mens hairs at Mina’s are beautiful on both genders and since she now has a pretty large mens hair  department if you’re a girl then you really need to check out the mens hairs as well.  Obviously you can choose the colour pack of your choice from pale blondes to the darkest of blacks and at this event Josef is at a discounted price of 199Lds for the normal shades.

Ooo I have to say though I’ve just checked the note which comes with your hair purchase and of course the picture inc is of a male AV and if you think Josef looks good on me you should see it on a male AV!


Doesn’t it look like that horse is “mad eyeing” me?

Normally I would have waited for the Kustom 9 event to calm down to let you know about the new hair and of course I would be able to grab the freebies that are there BUT I did a post not long ago and I mentioned the blood drenched Mina hair, I’ll pop the picture down below,  Mina has now set this hair out at Kustom 9 for ONLY 9Lindens!! so if you were tempted to get this hair but were short on Lindens it’s now at such a cheap price anyone can afford it.


The “FFS” in the title is because I’ve burnt my finger on my straighteners and I can’t TP back into Kustom 9! Give it a day or so to calm down, check out the new Mina hair, grab the bargains and as I’ve said I’m pretty sure there are some really good Freebies waiting to be snagged.

Working Hard pt2

LOL I don’t think Faith spotted me but I spotted her.  I had dragged her over to check out my new landscaping find, the field of flowers, and of course as I’m snapping away she rezzed inworld in her last location so I thought I would just leave her in.


The reason I’ve done 2 posts is that the top and shorts are a hunt item from B!asta and I don’t know when it’s going to be finished.  Although I’d seen the hidden box on a previous visit I had ignored it as I thought it was a hunt for Textures and not actual clothing so when I spotted this gift in my notices I quickly TPed over and snagged it.  A simple country girl top and dark crushed velvet pants.  Easy peasy to find because when you rezz there are markings on the ground for you to follow.

The hair, Jacky is another Mina special from Kustom 9 and just like the Aranka hair in my previous post this one comes with a massive choice of colour packs.  There is a demo available for you to try but if Kustom 9 is still packed then pop into her mainshop and try the hair out there but if you want the more colourful shades you will just have to wait a little for Kustom 9 to calm down.

I was sent a lovely little gift from “Nerdy Girl’s” Moira Serenity a classic broken heart necklace and it’s a Gacha win for only 20Lds a try.  She’s one of these people who recognise that not everyone has Lindens spare so puts out regular Free GG’s and if you follow the link to my previous posts the excellent SLink shoes with a colour changing hud are still there waiting to be snagged.
