I failed!(Freebie n Dollarbie n New Mina).

Although I did manage to clear out some of my invent with so many offers coming through from the freebie groups I’m in thatI had to go and check them out and ended up with more stuff in my invent.

KEEPERS for me and I say it in plural because you get the skirt, top, sunglasses, bag and flippy flops and then times them by 2 because you get this set as well.

I’m not actually sure which texture is my fav so I’m keeping both.  They come as separate and in all mesh and non-mesh bods.  The flip flops also come with if I remember a 6 colour hud option but sorry can’t remember the feet they are for and yes I rezzed the bag even though it comes with a wearing pose, not used, as it makes for a great decor item and again if my memory is correct it was about 6 prims.

There are other Group Gifts but although this little number is in the DM shop you have to join the free “Ficamos Lindas” group, just click on the image and you will get the link to join.

I also spotted that the pictures on the floor leaning against the wall are all set as Dollarbies and I grabbed this one.

This boobie flashing cheeky little number strikes a bell with me so I don’t know if Faith has blogged it a while ago or it was sent out in a previous notice and I just didn’t follow up but anyhow here it is.  The top comes in all sizes and also a colour hud and the panties are in an Omega applier as well as the system clothing layer.

Now for the New Mina hair and I think you can tell from the styling that this is available at “The Vintage Fair” and is called Betty.  The fringe on both sides have big fat pin curls which give it that “retro” look.

As you all know I’m not into techie stuff but the one thing with all the big and busy events that now take place I have become more acutely aware of that little box that pops up to tell me what my “avatar complexity” is, and just to test it out I’ve popped a non Mina hair on and it’s sent the numbers rocketing through the roof and that often can cause you to lag or for other people not to be able to see your AV fully formed, is this when you become a Jelly person?  I’m not really sure if I have any Mina hair that even scratches the surface of being lag causes but she has always included a “Material” and Non-Material” version in her packs.  The non-material simply mean that they’re just slightly not as complex and therefore someone who has a computer that struggles with SL or busy places might find this is a better version to wear.  She’s now made it even simpler and there are now 2 tabs on the side of the hud for you to click to whichever option suits you so you don’t have to take one hair off to put the other version on you just click the Hud.  BUT again I have to say that for all their details and texturing I cannot think of any of her hairs even the material version comes come even close to making you have issues.

As Alway check out the Mina Mainshop for the Demo but don’t worry as this is such a large event the couple of times I’ve been over it’s been busy but also quiet enough for a nice saunter around.  The LM takes you close to her shop it’s simple just one of them on the corner so easy to find.

FREE MINA!

Free Mina hair need I say more, OK yes I do lol.

But first a super duper gift from Caboodle.  You will have to pay 25Lds to join the group but for that, you get a chance to not only grab some tasty group gifts but also a chance to win some excellent lucky chair items.  I have blogged them before and since the items in the chairs haven’t changed I will put the link to that post so you can check out the prizes.

This top is one of the old GG’s but the skirt is brand new and as you can see it matches the top but both the skirt and top come with colour changing menus and all of them inc the patterns are just lovely.  I think there are 9 options for the top and 12 for the skirt.

Now for the “Mina” or in this case Myrtle.

I change my hair for almost every picture but just like my clothes I have “go to” hair and Myrtle is one of them.  This hair just goes with so much, short and face framing but from behind you can see it’s long and thick with that loose wrapped over hair.  This hair is so wearable and goes with so much so to find it has been set out as a gift at the SL14B event was a really nice surprise add to that a pretty generous hud of the basics, 2 browns, 2 blondes, 2 reds, 2 blacks and 2 greys, I think this is right but you can see basically a hair shade for everyone.

PS Check out that I have also changed the texture of the top and skirt.

Quality.(New Mina & Freebie).

Mina Nakamura hair just keeps on getting better and better.  I still go to many other hair shops and I’m constantly trying on new hair and yes there is some amazing hair creators out there as well and yes I even, if rarely, buy hair that isn’t a Mina but as a lot of you already know to me Mina hairs “sing”.  I put them on and think “Oh Yeah” this is me this is how I would like to be able to style my hair in RL or how well the hair goes with a certain look I’m trying to create and in this case, it’s a cute prim n proper look.

As alway, I know I’m like a Parrot, you must try this hair on first to be able to see what I’m talking about but Marre comes with extra strands of hair that give a realistic depth and body to your “do”.  Yup, clear as mud but I’m sure once you’ve tried it on you will know what I mean.  This hair is only available at FaMESHed so you’re gonna have to wait because that damned place will be lag hell but as always you can try this and another NEW and pretty unique Mina hair at her main shop.

There is a lot more I can tell you about Mina hair inc the larger colour packs, unique colours and just as importantly the “material” and “non material” versions but I’ve blabbed enough so I’ll leave you with a small freebie from a BIG HUNT.  Check out the glasses I’m wearing.  I have to confess that often I don’t even bother to unpack the boxes that I know contain sunglasses or tattoos and most of the time jewellery, I simply don’t have the time to work my way through them and it can eat into my SL time if I spend too much putting on those extras such as jewelry etc but damn I’m glad I opened these ones from Pink Ranger shop You actually get a whole range of colours and each colour comes in a choice of gold or silver metals.  I love em and with these, you can create super cute or smarty pants look by simply changing the colour of the lenses.

If you haven’t noticed the WOH3 has started and sorry boys that stands for “Women Only Hunt” but Woo Hoo for us.  You’re looking for coconuts and for those of use like me who are useless with Hunts you can follow the LM to grab the inworld Hud which will TP you to any of the shops involved in this hunt and also gives you super easy hints.

2 Words, “F**K Y*U”, (and FREEBIES).

Urgh part of me cringes slightly putting the “Freebie” into the title but you know what? We go on, life goes on, nothing changes apart from we become stronger.

So back to normality and in my case being a Cheap B*.

I made a “boo boo”.  I did a post a short time ago about a New Mina called Shelly which is available at the Ultra & Kinky Event and I gave the LM to the Satelite Mina shop which is on the sim with this event but to get Shelly follow the new LM which will take you right to the building that contains not only the new hair BUT a FREE Mina! (as well as so many other gifts which of course I grabbed like mad).

This one is not just a new blonde but has been designed to fit over collars.  This is why I deliberately chose this top because as you can see it’s pretty darn thick and bulky, normally I would stay clear of this style of top and yet apart from a minimum break through it fits amazingly well.  You get 3 sizes but the sizes don’t change the head size just the size of the way the hair hangs down.

Actually just before I clicked “publish” I thought “wait  a mo” because a lot of the long Mina hairs already come in different sizes but the difference is that they’re more “boob” sizes so basically you get “BB”,”SB” or “NB” sizes in any case and not many other hair designers offer this and neither do they offer the 2 meshes ie “Materials” and “Non Materials”.  More about that at another time because RL is calling me.  So lots of Freebies at Ultra inc this Mina.

PS. The top is one of the Group Gifts from Bijou from my last post but didn’t show you so check that post out as well.

Wonder Woman!(VIP Gifties &Cheapies & Freebies & New Mina).

I got this new hair from Mina’s and I have to be honest I tried it on and shoved it back into my invent with a “hum not to sure about this one” and then this morning when I unpacked my little hoard from QE Designs it was a “NO WAY” because it turns out Lara with her 80ties vibes, to me at least, turned out to be perfect and not only that but I rarely use the darker/black shades and yet, in this case, that shade even worked out to be the best,

I want to know how many people look at this picture and don’t instantly think of the “Follow me” song in their head?

I had so much fun pulling this look together,  SL is for dressing up and Role Playing and just being who you want to be and in this case an 80ties Babe. I will put my hand up and admit that I’m as guilty as everyone for wearing very nice but “ordinary” clothes when I’m out and about in SL but I also really notice when someone is rocking an interesting and individual look and this is it for me.

I got this outfit from QE Design and the leotard is an Applier set with tattoo layers and it cost just 10Lds.  To join the QE Vip group it’s only 15Lds and you will notice the little doorway in the entrance  which is a TP to the VIP room and I tried it without my VIP Tag on and I could still TP up there so if you want to check out the other VIP GG’s before you join then you can and you can see all the fits/appliers they come with. Even though this “look” mightened be to your taste I’d recommend you do check the rest out before you make your mind up.  Forgot to mention the shoes are one of the VIP gifts which is why I’m wearing them.

I swear when Mina Nakamura created this hair she was either thinking of Wonder Woman or the 80Ties, I’m pulling a Wonder Woman pose here if you hadn’t guessed LOL.

Then I did a quick change to show you the hair as a close-up but also a toned down look.  The top is a FREEBIE also from the QE Design Shop and you will find this and a black version in the reception area of the shop.  The black was a bit flat in texturing and I almost didn’t try the gray on but I think you can see that because of the lighter colour you can deffo see more details and it comes with a hood on the back and you can wear it with or without the hood.  Sorry the pants are old gifties I will pop over to where I got them from but chances are they will have been long gone but any pants will do ie jeans, shorts etc

I’ve also toned down the hair into one of my fav colours.  You might also notice that all the hair is now swept back over my shoulders, unlike the other pictures where you have a lot of hair in front.  This option and the option to change the hair band colour can be found in the “options” tab in the menu.

A couple of things to mention is that now Mina hairs are in a new delivery system so you “wear” it and just click the window which opens and it’s sent to you.  A pretty standard system of delivery now.  Sorry I only got this hair yesterday and I know so little about it it was just too good an opportunity to use it so I will put the link to Mina’s main shop and I’m pretty sure the demo and more info will be in there and I will do an update to this post myself when I find out more about “Lara”

PS Just a slight update because as soon as I TPed over to Mina’s RL came a knocking but there is a demo for Lara as well as the LM to the event where you can buy it from plus I spotted that in the picture Mina has used there is no headband which I didn’t notice.  With the hairband this  big hair is 80ties but without the hair band it screams Warrior Queen to me.  Anyhow pop in, try the demo and snag the LM.

Have a great day and I’ll see ya’s later.

You know she did. (Freebies).

It’s a Bank Holiday in the UK which means PJ Day for me and a TO DO list for him cos that new doorbell isn’t going to fix itself to the door lol.

Yes, I was pathetic enough for Faith to send me the Rare she won so I now have that and the unrare(sic) car I won parked outside of my house. They’re both so low primmed I can do that.

Now for the freebies, my RL maybe skanking it out in tatty PJs but my SL me is glamming it up in this super dress from the AnaMarkova shop.

The AnaMarkova is a paid for group and I am a fully paid up member because at 100Lds it’s a bargain.  I will admit though it’s been a long time since I’ve been over to snag any new GG’s that may have been set out but when I was grabbing this SL Frees and Offers (sic) gift set out for us I spotted a whole bookcase of the paid for groups gifts so if you have some spare Lindens you wouldn’t be wasting them if you did join the anaMarkova group.   If I get some more SL time today I will pop back change my group tag and grab them to see what’s what.

There are actually 2 Freebies for the SL Frees and Offers group this and a purple skirt/top set.  This outfit actually has 3 separate bits to it, a chain halter and a leather halter both of which come as separates which means you can also use them with other outfits as well.

PS The shoes from my last post go perfectly with this dress AND check out my Mina, this hair is called Chantel and she is one of the Gacha wins from her main shop and I’ve mentioned before how some of my Fav Mina hairs are actually Gacha wins andChantel is one of them, you can’t see from this angle but Chantel has a big loose bun.  So if you want a new hair with a big fat hair colour hud and it should be about the 100Lds you can beat trying one of the Gacha’s.

PPS Don’t worry even with the Gacha hair you can try the Demos first.

Time to escape the gym!(NEW BARGAIN MINA).

Yes, I am spoilt both with chocolate in RL and Mina hair in SL.  I was planning on being good but a friend popped over with a bag of “Thank You” Easter choccies for me and I fell for it, face first into the bag to be exact and now I’m sat here feeling as sick as a dog!  What’s even worse is that when you’ve eaten too much sweet stuff you crave something savory to counteract the sweetness but if I eat anything more I will EXPLODE!

Anyhow, I ended up with not just 1 but 2 New Mina’s, although I’m not showing you the second one just this one, Inkie.

Inkie comes in “Windy, Small Pony & Big Pony.  This is the Windy one and I’ve worn it in the last couple of post as well.  Mina now has a selection of hairs with that windblown look to them which isn’t just perfect for great photos but actually still very wearable even just pottering around in SL.

This hair is the small ponytail.

A nice cute, sporty little ponytail hair or for a more dramatic look you could try your luck for the “large ponytail”,

I say “luck” because these 3 hairs are Gacha wins from The Epiphany and that means you have to take a chance on the style and colour pack but it also means that you get to own a stunning Mina for just 75Lds!  But remember that in Mina’s main shop there is other Gacha’s from previous events and so if this hair doesn’t do it for you but you’re on a budget there is no better way than trying a bargain priced Gacha plus these aren’t just nasty hair knocked up they’re Gacha’s from previous big events so for a token price you can get yourself great hair.

But don’t rush over to The Epiphany event just yet as it’s beyond packed!  There is even a second sim but that’s packed as well but don’t worry as we have until the 15th of May which gives us plenty of time to saunter over when it’s calmed the F*ck down, but of course you might just catch it in a quite moment as well.

“Bunn” is the special buy  At first this one seems to be the least styled one of the lot but “Bunn” is perfect for accessorising.  You can dress this hair up with so much, tiaras, flowers, hair jewelry or keep it plain for a lovely simple ballerina style.

Now for the icing on the cake and it’s not the different styles of pony tails/colour packs it’s the “bangs” or as we call it the fringe.  Every hair comes with an options tab which gives you 3 ways of wearing the fringe, completely off, fringe only and fringe and tendrils.  So even more bang, or should that be “bangs” for your Lindens…ok I’ll stop it with the jokes.

To win “Bunn” what happens is when you rezz your Gacha prize, any prize, if you don’t want to keep it then follow the instructions that come up and you can return it for points and with these points you can use them to purchase one of the specials which is on each Gacha stand.   Follow the link to the Seraphim web site for pictures of everything and LMs.

Time for me to hunt for a new clothes so I can finally escape my gym LOL.
