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”.

Hiding in the shadows.(Freebie, Cheapie & Mention of lots and lots of Freebies).

OK, First the “freebie” which is the top.  The template for this top is now an SL classic and I have shown you at least one of these previously and you will undoubtedly see this design again but this one from “Pearl Fashion” comes with some damned fine texturing/colours.  You get a hud with a big 13 textures in total and plenty of fits as well but of course, with this style, it’s not really needed.

I almost forgot that this top is one of two free for all gifts in the Pearl Fashion shop.  There are some group gifts but this top and a pair of shorts are free for all, you do pay 1Ld and get 1Ld returned to you.  The reason I’m not showing you the shorts is that they’re very summery and I for the life of me couldn’t find another freebie to go with those shorts so I decided just to show you the top and let the shorts be a nice surprise.

The “cheapie” is a reblog and it’s the gold pants.  As I was pulling this look together I knew instantly it was going to be these pants.  They were and still are a 35Ld offer from “Sparrow”.  I popped over just to see if there was a new bargain out for us but it’s still these pants which I don’t mind at all because when something is this good it gives more people a chance to snap it up.  It’s a Maitreya fit only, you can try the demo first.

As for the “lots and lots of freebies” you will probably already have been to the “ACCESS” event but just in case you haven’t this event is packed with SL Birthday GIFTIES for us.  I visited this event quite a few days ago and I’ve not managed to even get around to checking out what I picked up but I’m betting my last 38Lds it’s gonna be good stuff as some of the top shops are at this event and almost as good, it’s calmed the F**d down lol.  Only 4 people when I was LM grabbing.

PPS.  Can you see what else I did?  I mentioned in a recent post about how Mina has hair with scarves and so I’m deliberately wearing one of them.  This hair is actually a 75Ld Gacha prize! If you decide to pop over to try the demo you will see that in the back you will see the hair is caught up into a casual bun and the ties of the scarf hang down and obviously you get a hud for the scarf as well.

Numpty.(Discounted Mina Hair).

I saw this hair on the New Boards in the Mina main shop but I was confused as I remember blogging this hair but I didn’t really give it too much thought until I got spendy at an event called Flourish and found this hair on one of the stalls there.

A fantastic offer because this hair, Karen, is only 99Ld but you’re still getting the full-colour pack of your choice and a style hud which allows you to change which side your hair hangs.

Hair like this is fab for taking pictures but if it’s a bit too windy for you then I know Mina has a few other hairs which have a much more subtle windswept look to them so as always LM to her main shop.

BTW The flourish event has now calmed down, phew, which is lucky as I did pick up a couple of 99Ld bargains.  It’s also a really nice sized event in that there is enough of everything, shoes, decor, hair but not so much you give in and TP home lol.

Resting B*tch Face.(10Ld TeleportHub Gift).

A quick start,  since I will be babbling on I’ll give you the details first and you can scroll past all of the babble.

TeleportHub group costs 10Lds to join, love this group.  This dress is a Maitreya only and although there is break-through at the back if you like it then it’s not a big issue esp if you wear it with long hair.  I picked this up from a shop which I know I’ve not visited before so I had a saunter through and there is a lot of the usual stuff but I found a couple of “ooo that looks interesting” so I grabbed myself a couple of demos to try on when I log back in.

That face comes with that pose so I decided to rummage in my invent for a better holding pose that didn’t give me a slapped arse face and I came across this one.

Yup wearable/playable cymbals.   Not much better but a lot more fun. I think they’re either an old Gacha win or hunt prize from Madpea. Every time I come across someone making those damned moaning noises I should whip these things out and stand next to them crashing my cymbals, (no offence to anyone who follows this blog and uses the moaning noises lol).

Can I tell you about a Mina hair rather than show you it?  Again feel free to scroll on I don’t mind.  Anyhow this hair is called “Elowen” has been out for quite a few weeks now and the reason I haven’t shown you it is not because it’s not unique, stunning and pretty damned relevant it’s because I can’t style it.

Do any of you watch”The Walking Dead”? I don’t but my OH never misses a show which is why I know that this hair is has been inspired by the characters called “Michonne” and yes I did have to google that.  Michonne has her hair styled in thick braids and uses fabric strips to keep it controlled and it’s the same with Mina’s version.  It’s not an identical copy, the braids are more random in their thickness, you have beads which I think you can wear with or without and of course it comes with a hud that allows you to change the colour of everything.  You don’t need to be a Walking Dead fan to wear this hair, it may lend itself more to an RP style but it can just be worn any time you want just not on a skinny assed pale white AV like mine lol.  I just don’t do it justice so if you want to try it out for yourself then when you walk into the Mina main shop just turn to your right when you walk in and it’s on the wall there.
