Guess who’s back…MINA of course. (New Group Gift).

Mina (Nakamura) the Boss Lady of Mina’s hairs decided to take a break over Christmas and the New Year so she could come back to SL refreshed and I’m going to assume with a shed load of fresh new designs.  I must admit I’d was having withdrawal symptoms and had been checking her shop on an almost daily basis for the past week to see if there was something new so to get a notice this morning about a NEW Group Gift made me stay inworld just a bit longer when I should have logged out and logged into RL.

When I first got it I thought “wait a mo “Harper” isn’t that an old hair?” and it is but this is the updated version.  I’ve not tried on the old Harper as a comparison, I’ve just binned it now that I have this newer one, out with the old and in with the new as I say.  I suspect that since there was nothing wrong with the old Harper as Mina’s hairs do seem to last the test of time what is updated is the colour pack.

For the initial 200Lds it costs to join the Mina VIP Group you get this hair, only in the blonde shades but the blondes go from in my opinion light brown to creamy light brown…doesn’t matter as you can try the demo before you join the group.

If this hair tempts you but you want more for your Lindens then check out the area to the right of the desk, at the base of the stairs and there you will find a wall of older and yet still wearable Group Gifts.  There is hair for both men and women BUT take them all.  Although Mina does have male hair upstairs a lot of her female hair is as good on him and her. So for your initial 200Lds, you can score a lot of very wearable long-lasting hair.

Can I also remind you that there are also Gacha’s in the Mina shop.  I was wandering SL yesterday and I was in a clothes shop which actually had 2 Mina Gacha’s in the shop.  This was the first time I’ve seen Mina’s Gacha’s elsewhere so it was a reminder to me to remind you to check those out.  None of them is over 100Lds, in fact, I think they average 75Lds for some great hair, some of my fav hairs come from Gacha wins and in fact Kismet strikes because I went and checked and “Inkie” the hair I wore in my last post is a Gacha win, only 75Lds etc…demos are out for Gacha wins just in case you want to make double sure it will suit you.

PS, I think it’s a 10% discount you get if you buy any hair from Mina if you’re wearing your Group Tag and of course there are 2 Lucky Chairs as well.

I have a good eye.(Freebie(s)).

There are a number of freebies upstairs in the “Nandi Style” shop.

As soon as I saw this one I thought “ooooh that might work” and it does, it’s just a simple skirt but I think you will like it esp teamed up with a woolly for winter or a cropped top for summer.

I can’t remember which group you had to join to get this one but there is a mix of freebies for a mix of freebie groups and you will find them and a couple of lucky chairs upstairs.

PS.  The picture shows 2 patterns but the freebie comes just in this 1 pattern but I spotted in the discount room that this skirt is for sale for 99Ld and comes with a 4 patterned hud.

Info Only.(200Ld Gift Card).

Alien Gizmo is handing out FREE gift cards Woo Hoo but Boo Hoo I can’t find a coat, jacket or even an ugly jumper!  Sadly I can’t donate it either as it’s non-trans but this is just too good an opportunity to not tell you about.

So pop over to Alien Gizmo and on the wall to your right in the entrance is where you find the Free Gift Card.  If you want to check out the gift room then you can either trawl your way up to the third floor or the easier way is to pop into the Alien Pod next to the reception desk and click the TP option.

The Gifts and 10Ld items in the gift are pretty old but I know I still have 3 items from there, maybe it’s to dust them off and see if they have stood the test of time.

UPDATE: I decided to “read the card” which was a good idea as each Gift Card comes with a time limit and mine is 3 days so I will pop back soon and have another mooch around.

A lousy fit! (Freebie & Mention of Freebies).

I knew as soon as I put the first Group Gift on that for me personally none of these was going to be a “keeper” and regular readers will be able to work it out from the picture.

Yup, all the Group Gifts are Maitreya only.

This bikini is I think the newest gift from Aleutia.  All of the gifts seem to come with a pretty generous colour hud which allows you to change different parts.  For this picture, I picked some of the bolder shades but you have more muted tones as well.

There is more than what I’m showing you so again, if you don’t like this then still check the rest and while you’re there do me a favour and slap the Midnight Mania board esp the one with the Winter Coat as the gift.  I bet once you see it then you will know why I want it.

My last treat.(25Ld Tue & Mention of Freebie).

I think this dress has “Ballet” in its description so it’s my excuse to pop on my ballet shoes and pull a few Plie’s.

I picked this gold one but there is an equally as nice blue one.
That white overskirt is like rough scrunched up netting.  I couldn’t see a demo but esp for this super bargain price of 25Lds it’s a snip.  BTW The funny way it’s hanging is simply because of my pose.

I’m not sure if this 25Ld Tue offer is out for just 24hours but I suspect that it will be out all week.

If you’re wondering about the shoes, sorry deffo not free but worth every Linden.  These come from Mosquito’s Way and although with the Pointe shoes you do have to have the SLink Pointe feet, and yes I have those as well.  All of that adds up but SL is for our dreams and if you want to dream that you look like you could float like a butterfly and not stumble like a Hippo then the cost of the feet and shoes is a small price. BUT This particular pair of shoes comes with this flat version and that can be worn with ALL mesh flat feet.  All 3 of her ballet designs shoes are available as demos in her shop so have a try and be that Ballerina.

As for the Freeness, we also all know that Mosquito’s Way is pretty generous with her Group Gifts and if you’ve not picked that pair up then you’re in for a treat, I was doubly lucky as I’ve not only picked it up but my initial was on one of the Lucky Chairs and so I’ve scored another great pair of shoes.

PS. The dress is a Maitreya fit only but a really good fit even for my SLink bod.

I never noticed! (Freebies).

This dress is a reblog BUT I don’t know if the hud it comes with has been added since I did that post and I just missed it or it’s been added since.

The colour I used in that first post was the black shade which totally highlighted the scales of the dress and with the flared skirt a very dramatic look but I think you can see the pink makes it a pretty dress.  I can’t remember how many shades are in this hud as I’m logged out and in fact, I’m speed typing this post as I need to RL for a bit but I just want to get another good post out……deep breath in.

The reason I’m using this dress is that the other Group Gifts only come in the 1 size and I won’t be betting any money on which size that is.  So even though this is not my fit you can see it is of a style that I could wear to show you and also I was lucky in that as I got there one of my initials was up on a lucky chair and the romper I won is not only really good with a hud but I could also alpha enough of my bits out to make that wearable.

You will find this, the other gifts and the lucky chairs upstairs and if you have some free time there is some nice thing in those chairs.  BUT you may be a bit confused as there is a set of shelves under the Group Gift sign and all thats on it is a pair of earrings, yes the are also a gift, but you will find this outfit and the other gifts on the wall near to the lucky chairs.  Honestly, you will see what I mean when you get there.

On route.(Dollarbie(s)).

I’d picked up some Dollarbies from the “Revelations” shop and after trying them on and feeling pleased with them I’d planned to hop on over to my fav beachy sim to take some snaps when for some reason I called into the Kuro shop first to try some demo AO’s out.

My AO comes from this shop and even though it’s as old as “Sculpties” it’s still perfect for me as it’s movements are subtle but time has moved on and maybe so should I and update my AO to a Bento AO.  I have to say that I’m still not keen on most Bento poses/AO’s until I hopped on this one.  Again they are more subtle than most and the hand movements are as natural as natural gets in SL.  This particular AO does cost 600Lds and I am not too up on AO prices so I’m not sure if this is a high or reasonable price to pay but when I log back in I think it’s time to waste some time and check out AO shops to see if there is anything better than this even though I think I will probably end up returning to buy it.

If you look behind me you will see the non-bento poses, these are much more reasonably priced esp if you’re not into Bento.  The prices start at 200Lds and average 300Ld for those.  There are also male AO’s as well.

As for this Dollarbie outfit, you have to join the free Revelation group and then pay 1Ld, not returned, and I’m more than happy with not just this but also the NEW Bikini.  I have possibly shown you this particular outfit before butttt I’m not sure.  You get a hud of colours and I’m loving this orange colour, plenty of fits.  As mentioned there is a new Dollarbie plus other outfits which have been blogged before and on the wall behind the GG’s are some Lucky Chairs.
