Ignore my mitts! (Freebie(s)).

Sorry, the hat on my head is not the freebie it’s the one I’m holding.  I was hoping I could edit this amazing Mina hat/hair so I could reuse the hair to show off this stunning Kawaii cowboy hat but I couldn’t so I’m holding it in a most unflattering pose for my hands lol.

The hat and the top I’m wearing come from “Sweet Thing” and there are other Group Gifts as well as some lovely Lucky Board prizes.

On my return visit to LM grab, I took a little wander around and I’m loving way too many of the outfits! The “Wanderlust” discount was very tempting but it was when I got to the Gacha’s and I just had to give it a go and I’m more than happy with what I won.

PS. The hat is only 2 prims so a great decor item and it does come with a decent-sized Hud.

Neve @ Fameshed – The Anniversary & Free Gift

Happy Anniversary Fameshed ! I haven’t been able to get in YET – but  have checked out the offerings on Seraphim here. I am lucky enough to have received the items on sale by Neve so I can show you them right now ! The “dear” top and “darling” skirt are in packs of four, plaids, solids, fades and spots, plus a Hud for metals. Legacy fits now included ! (Oh my days I’m not wearing the pink option *faint*)

There is also an anniversary gift! This handy dandy top that comes in four colours. It fits beautifully over so many Neve items , I’m dead chuffed with it. Top notch quality with all those folds and wrinkles you’ve come to expect from Neve. Thanks Neve team ❤

My hat / hair combo is from Mina and is called “Carian“, you get a hud for hair colours and the hat – I dont often wear Mina hair – Zan is my Mina showcase as she alwayssss wears their hair – this was one from last year that I spotted her wearing, tried, and bought – I dont know why but some of the hairs by Mina just dont suit my head ! Love this one though ❤

Virtual Tourist – If you like the look of the photo backgrounds – check out Florence at Low Tide – its an amazing sim to explore and hang out in. Plenty of spots to chill in. Quite a few people milling around so might be nice to meet some new faces.

Something was bothering me! (Freebie).

First, the Freebie which will have been posted in every freebie group as it’s a new Coco Design gift.

Lovely simple floral jacket. The nice touch about this jacket is that it has a slight flare to the bottom which helps it to fit over any/most jeans or skirts you own.

Goes without saying plenty of old, unique and quality gifts out in the shop.

Back to Mina’s.  I know I did a post about this yesterday, only to be informed by Faith that the Uber event has been opened for a few days lol.  The thing was something was nagging at me, so I popped the hair back on to try to work it out and as soon as I opened the hud it slapped me in the face like the smell of week-old dead fish, NEW colours.  As I mentioned to my seasoned eye there are more strands of colour to the hairs which you can see more clearly in this second picture but the colour packs have been tweaked to add more undertones/shades options.

Coco Design.

Personal Choice. Pt 2.(Freebie).

I know that the “S@bbia style” won’t be to everyone’s taste but you know I love it.  I watch sewing videos, I plan sewing projects, I have a sewing machine, threads, needles, patterns, bags stuffed with fabric and fabric scraps and so many of those little things you think you need but you don’t and do I actually sew? Of course not I’m just a craft hoarder BUT if I ever pulled my finger out of my ass the things I’d sew would look like S@bbia as it has a “homemade” look to it and I’d be dead proud if I could actually sew something like this.

This year because I’m trying to stop wasting money I have warned my loved ones that Christmas is going to be handmade so when they unwrap their knitted/crocheted dishcloths, oven mitts, pot holders, cheeky cross stitches etc they have to feign surprise and delight….OR ELSE!

Back to the dress which you may recognise as a couple of posts ago, I showed you this months S@bbia Group Gift which is the Halloween version of this dress.  What I didn’t show you in that post were the shoes which are included with the dress and at this angle, you can see the cute flatties.  This version the shoes are white with roses and the Halloween version the shoes are black and even if the style of dress isn’t for you get them for the shoes.

The Halloween gift has been moved to one side and on the wall you will see some of the older, and dated, GG’s but you will also see a much newer gift of a shoulder bag which I have blogged and it’s excellent not only to wear but as a decor item.

PS.  Naturally, it’s a Mina’s hair and I know it’s one of her newer ones as it comes with a “style hud”.  I love braids it’s as simple as that.

I’m an Alien. (Freebie).

Quite a different look for me but it gives me an excuse to wear “Blair” which is, of course, a fab Mina hair, in a most unusual style.

Although I’ve added some special effects the top has a most unusual “bluebottle” sheen to it.

As you can see from the breakthrough it is a Maitreya fit only.  It did actually fit me but as soon as I pulled a pose breakthrough happened.  It was the same as the pants, they came from Osmia which I’ve just done a post about and these are the “Halloween” pants.  You do get a lot of fits inc SLink HG but I couldn’t wear that body as the top just didn’t fit that shape and I wanted to show you the top more than the pants.  If you don’t care for the colour of the pants still grab them as you get a whole load of colours and the black pair are very handy.

I need to research more. (15Ld Cheapie’s, New Mina Group Gift & Mention of Freebies).

I did a post about the Ricielli shop not too long ago, sometime last month I think it was, and at that time the paid for hunt was still the Easter Hunt and although the prizes would lovely for any time of the year it was a shame there wasn’t new stuff and now there is NEW STUFF.

It’s now a Summer Hunt.  As always with the Ricielli hunt, there is a clear key which shows you what fits each prize comes in and what number you’re looking for. This time you’re looking for swim rings but I did spot that the Easter Hunt nests are still out.

This blouse was the only thing I bought but as it’s a lovely “soft butter” colour lovely with that tucked up effect.  If you really want to try a demo I’m pretty sure all of the hunt prizes are for sale in the shop, obviously the hunt is limited with the colour options, so if you really want to try before you buy check the shop out to see if there is a demo out BUT in all honesty you don’t need to.  This is a shop which has never failed with its fits and texturing and to get damned good stuff for just 15Lds is a real treat.

As always if you want to check out the older hunt prizes then leave the shop and follow the signpost “Sales, Shoes, Old Hunts, Gacha”  to the big building which houses all of the old hunt items. Still priced at 15Lds.

There is a Freebie in the Ricielli shop but it has been out for a long time and blogged many a time and so the chances are you already have it but the LM will take you right to where the freebie is.

Special mention to the hair.  It’s the NEW Mina group gift.  “Celeste” has that light windblown over the shoulder look to it.  I’m NOT wearing one of the colours it does come in as it may surprise you to know that I’m not actually in the Mina Group.  That hair comes in the “Dip Dyed” pack of shades and although some are pretty bold colour blends you also have some essential blends as well.  The Mina VIP group does cost 200Lds to join and you don’t just get this one but the area at the foot of the stairs to upstairs is where all the older Group Gifts are hoarded.  Make sure to grab the men’s hair as well because so many of her hairs are pretty unisex.  It’s the same for any men out there, grab the girls hair as well, Celeste maybe too feminine for a male AV but so many hairs will be just as wearable for you.  I keep on forgetting that there are also 2 Lucky Chairs in the Mina shop as well and if you’re in the group wearing your tag gets you 10% off a purchase.

I was hoping that the pants I’m wearing were freebies but I can’t track down where they came from but they did give me the link to the “Justice” shop and in the back of there are some free Group Gifts which I have blogged and the skirt and trousers there are excellent.  I don’t want to “reblog” them but make sure to check that link out as well…..you won’t regret it.

PS.  Yes there is more blabbing, I forgot to mention that the Ricielli prizes come in “copy, non-trans” or “non-copy, trans” and of course I chose the “non-copy, trans” which meant I kept the fits that work for me and popped the spare ones into my donation boxes.

I’m British.(NEW Mina & Dollarbie & Mention of FREE Mina)

Being British means I can and WILL moan about this heat! OK, I won’t as I think many of us are in the same position but with the help of Sudocreme and one of those metal water bottles filled with ice cubes I’ve managed to cool my sorry ass down.

I often go to Mina’s and click on the new boards even if there is no picture up because sometimes she loads up the new items well before their release date and that’s how I got my mitts on this AMAZING HAT/HAIR demo last week, even before she put it out for us bloggers to grab.

Now that it’s out for everyone to grab here it is but don’t bother.  This is only available at Uber which has just opened its doors today and it’s like a fat dog in this heat, HEAVING, so not worth the stress.  As always LM to Mina’s to check out the demo.

The wicker on this hat is not only so fine but if you look closely you will see you can actually see through it.  A good example of it is the shadow on the wall to the right, you can see the line of the shadow through the fine wicker.  It’s the same with your AV face, you can see my forehead and part of the eyebrow etc.

As always, which seems pretty standard with Mina’s you get a decent-sized hud for the hat and hair but of course you get a “style” hud which as you will know allows you to change the way the hair hangs, plus you get a boob option so big or bigger we have you covered.

I didn’t want to put this in the title as I didn’t want you to think this is it BUT there is a FREE Mina hair also at Uber!  I will wear that hair in my next post and I won’t be surprised if you recognise it as this isn’t just an old thing dusted off and put out as a token gift.  Hazel is one of her pretty new hairs but I will show you and tell you more about that in my next post.

As for the Dollarbie, it’s the pants, I wasn’t going to reblog them but damn they’re too good not to.  You can only get them off the Majestic Marketplace shop and not only do you get this plain pair but also a patterned pair and I love both of them.  One thing to note is that the plain pair is darker than shown in the MP picture but that’s nowt!  There are only Dollarbies in this shop but sadly only 11 but you will see there are other pants some tops etc.

PS.  The picture of this hair/hat hasn’t been uploaded to the new release board but simply click on the empty frame next to the other new hair and you can pick up this up.  BTW it’s called “Carian Sunhat”.
