Pure Class.(Hunt Freebies).

I was so desperate to get my mitts on the Kaithleen’s hunt prize I actually cammed and scanned for about 45mins before I gave in and then I spotted a lady called Sia inworld and I know she’s a good hunter.  So I sent out an SOS and damn she is good although I have to say as soon as she pointed it out it was deffo a case of “DUH”.

As you can see it was well worth the SOS because just look at the stretch in the skirt, no distortion in the texturing and the folds at the hem just Kaithleen quality.

She always has such attention to the detailing.  This gift comes in all standard mesh sizes inc my SLink one..Woo Hoo I would have been royally PO’d if it hadn’t as I adore this shop and the clothing as she manages to make her clothes sweet and sexy with a touch of “cheeky” thrown in and all done in amazing quality.

Whilst you’re there check out the GG’s which are in the main entrance because although this isn’t a free group at 200Lds for I think it’s 5 or 6 outfits including a brand new one it’s an excellent investment and if it just wasn’t for the case of I already have some Kaitleen clothes which I never get to wear I’d join and snap them up in a heartbeat.

What I’m not showing you yet, I’m just waiting for the right look for it, is the Mina hair I picked up as well which is yet another prize in this excellent hunt.  This hair comes only in the black shade, Arwen is the name of the hair and since I have the full-colour set plus the group gift one which is dirtied with blood so I know the style well, it’s a short cute and young hair but I did notice that in the black it’s a bit edgier so it wouldn’t go as well with this dress as the hair I chose.

Since I know you will go and get the Mina hair I know you will be going to where the group gifts are, hint hint, so once you’ve picked up the hunt freebie check out the Mina Group Gifts.  I do believe her group is also just 200Lds to join and you get LOADS of hair for that.  There is also men’s hair as well as women’s hair but take them all because a lot of Mina’s hairs can be classed as being unisexed and look great on both sexes.

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.

Why?(Free(?)Mina & Massive Mina Hair Sale).

I’ve been trying for days to get into a couple of big events and because they’re stoofed I’ve not been able to which is a shame as I would love to confirm it but I’m 99% sure that this Mina hair called Faith is FREE and add to that you get a FULL-colour hud pack! Holy Crapola! Faith is already one of my fav hairs, so obviously I’m just wearing the copy I already own lol, but to be able to snag this for free and the full-colour pack is AWESOME!

To get this free hair you have to try to squeeze your AV ass into the “Shop Your Heart Out Event” and I wish you luck.  I stood for ages waiting for enough people to leave so I could get in but nope, I’ve put the link to this event blog at the bottom of this post so you can see why this is a special event.  Don’t panic though as this event goes on till the 26th and the Mina LM should take you right to her shop at this event.

So I TP’ed over to Mina’s Mainshop and just stood on her lovely landscaped sim and pondered what to do because in her mainshop in celebration of her SL/RL Birthday she’s got a massively discounted sale on.  All of the women’s hairs and some of the men’s hair upstairs in her shop are slashed to 125Lds for each colour pack.  The reason for the rush is that this discounted event is only on till the 13th and you’re going to need all of the time from now till then to try on all of these hairs as there are so many!

These aren’t hairs which haven’t dated well in fact for a while I was at a complete loss as to why they were being removed from the inworld shop and then it dawned on me it’s the size of the colour hud options.  The discounted hairs are still some of the best hairs but they do come with a choice of 5 colours whilst the newer hairs come with a massive 10 colour options.

What a way to fill your invent with great hair.

You can miss out all of the rest of this post as it’s just me being spammy.

I get my Mina hair for free but I am a free agent, I don’t have to blog every hair, I don’t have to sing their praise, I don’t have to wear them all the time or bad mouth other hairs!  I only have to be honest and I LOVE Mina hairs.  Of course, I have hair from so many other designers, Dura, D!va, Argrace etc and LOVE them but Mina always just has styles that makes me feel “Oh yeah, that works” and even when not showing you a new Mina I’m 95% of the time wearing a Mina because I always just find the right hair.

Although most of her range is every day, everyone wearable she also had unique “out there” range of hair.  She also has the best range of men/unisexed hair I know although I will admit my knowledge of men’s SL hair is limited so any male AV will know what they prefer.  She’s now also coming out with a lot of little extra “options” which allow you to change the style of the hair, for example, the 2 new Pocket Gacha wins and each comes with the 4 ways to wear your fringe/bangs even Faith has 2 options the one I’m wearing and the other one moves the plaits to allow for bigger boobies.

I also know that Mina is a working lady, she’s in SL to make money and not just for making money’s sake.  I won’t go into personal details but being able to use her creativity and computer skills to make money allows her to look after not just herself but also her family and I think we, even I, sometimes forget that a lot of people actually do need the income from SL because it can for those who have the skill offer an income to help with RL.  Which is why I may hunt out the cheap ‘n’ free but when I spot something I love, usually furniture and landscaping stuff, I buy it. I spend a lot of Lindens in SL because people need support but mainly because my SL is my RL escapism and so if I spend some RL money to make my escapism just that bit sweeter then I do.

PS.  Forgot to mention that at the Mina’s mainshop LM there is also 2 Midnight Madness boards with yet again one of my go-to hairs in it!

I dunno how she’s done it! (New Mina & (old?) New Freebie).

I’m sorry because I can’t be 100% sure I haven’t already shown you this free outfit from Foxes before but before I bin it I can’t resist showing it to you again.  The reason I will be binning it is that it’s a Maitreya fit only but not a bad fit at all!  I normally find that it’s at the belly/crotch area that the breakthrough is too bad for me to wear but with this top/bottom separates apart from a little breakthrough at the throat it’s a really good fit.  I edited the holes but if I was to be keeping it I would rummage in my invent for a cute bow, scarf, piece of jewely to hang at the neck to cover that up as the quality of the texturing is really good.

I know for sure that I’ve not shown you this pug bag though.

You get 2 styles of this bag plus a pugtastic doormat. The posing hold that comes with the bags isn’t “photogenic” so I dug this pose out of my invent.  Yes, I did, I rezzed it and at only 1 prim this lovely bag will also make a great room decor item.  I’m sure there was other gifts but I’ve forgotten them.

The LM takes you to the lovely sim this and other well know shops are on and not directly to the Foxy shop but all of the shops are well worth a visit and as I LMed grabbed I spotted the archway to the “Gacha Island” section…you have been warned!

I betcha spotted the hair as well?  I have no idea of how Faith got her curvy AV behind into the Fetish Fair because I certainly couldn’t but I also noticed a few other sims where down so I’m not sure if SL was having issues or it’s me with the issues (it all depends on who you ask, lol). So for the details about this hair I went to the trusty Seraphim blog and I will put the link to that as well so you can see the Mina colour packs as well as everything else for sale at this event.

The hair is called Audrie and is the now standard price for her really big colour packs.  You get 2 colour Huds which allow you to change both sides of the hair and in the top picture you can see that I’ve chosen the same shade so you can go for a very colourful dramatic look to a cute and normal one…who wants to be normal in SL?

As always I’ve put the link to Mina’s shop because she’s been a busy bee and there are 2 Pocket Gacha hairs at a super bargain price of 75Lds a try! and remember full-colour full colour pack not just 1 hair shade and these ones come with 4 choices of how you wear your fringe/bangs etc.  Then “Audrie” and another hair which I’ve not shown you yet but if you like plaits down to your bottom then you will love that one.  All of these new hairs have of course the demos so as always, try before you buy.

Coffee time.(Freebie ‘n’ Bargains ‘n’ Pocket Gacha)

A bit of a random selection here of free, cheap & Gacha.

Vanity shot.

The dress is a freebie from a shop called ISHARA.  There is a whole selection of freebies but for different free to join groups.  If the LM doesn’t take you to where the freebies are then they’re just inside one of the doorways to your left as you walk in.  This dress comes with a hud that allows you to change the colour of the top half.

I’d just slung these on to have something on my feet but even though I know they’re oldies because they still looked good I decided to check out the Mirus mainshop and didn’t see them in there however they’re on the Marketplace shop for only 10Lds. You get the 4 main mesh feet fits plus a 6 colour option Hud and they’re good work a day shoes.

Lia is the long loose ponytailed and Anna is a loose tuck up at the nape of the neck version.  I’m pretty sure that both of them have the same top part and it’s the way the hair is at the back that is different.  They also have a superb option which has crept into a lot of Mina’s hairs and that’s the way the strands of hair hang down.  You have a total of 4 options, going from this top picture with all those loose strands hanging down framing my face to the bottom picture, which I’ve recycled, and in that one you can see I’ve used the lesser strand option so when wearing glasses you don’t get them breaking through or you simply can remove them all.  So 1 hair with 4 different ways of wearing it.

Wow not only are they great Mina hairs but they’ve turned out to be even greater bargains as they’re Gacha hairs!  Mina isn’t mean with her Gacha hairs and although in this case you don’t know if you’re going to get Lia or Anna but they’re shop quality hair not old stuff she doesn’t sell anymore but brand new designs that she could sell for full price in her shop and again although you have to risk it for the colour you do get a full large colour pack and not just a single shade and all of that for a measly 75Lds!

I know people love their Mina Gacha wins because in all the years I’ve trawled Yardsales I’ve only ever come across a Mina hair pack for sale about twice so people aren’t getting rid of what they have won and I know I’ve said it many times but some of my fav Mina hairs are Gacha wins and if you want to check them out they’re all just inside of her shop and of course Demo’s available.

By now most people will have seen the “Pocket Gacha” terminals.  If Gacha’s couldn’t get more addictive they have now because this is a hud means you don’t have to trawl through a laggy event, or TPed from shop to shop you can just sit down in your home, platform, hangout spot and open your hud and shop away.  It’s super easy to use, had nice little features which allow you to see your favourite designers first etc so if you’ve not tried it out yet check out the Mina’s mainshop as the LM takes you not just to the demos for these 2 hairs but there is aPocket Gacha Hud terminus right there and you can pick up a copy have a seat and just try it out.

PS if you’re in the Mina Group which I do believe only costs 200Lds not only is there a large selection of men/women/unisexed hairs she now has a New Group Gift out.

A Quickie & only a mention of freebies.

NO FREEBIES in this picture, sorry.

I got a New Mina, Woo Hoo.  I swear the day I stop blogging Mina’s hairs is the day when I put one on I don’t go “Ooo” and I “Ooo’d” when I put Alexis (I think that’s how the name is spelled because I got completely sidetracked when over at Mina’s sim).

I got sidetracked because when I went inside the main shop to get the LM I finally found the Group Gifts that Mina has out for us.  There is actually an upstairs at Mina’s and although there is a discount section up there it’s not a place to dump old stuff because the stuff upstairs is as good as the stuff downstairs is and the men’s hair is up there as well but I’m a lazy toad and I often just stand n cam but this time I decided to trot upstairs using the stairs and there they are!

A total of 9 hairs and trust me it doesn’t matter what sex your AV is a lot of Mina’s hairs look amazing on both male and female AVs so men grab the women’s hair and ladies grab the men’s hair….did that come out a bit rude sounding lol.  I wondered where these group gifts were hidden but because like most people I’d just assumed they were behind or on the reception desk and they’re not.  No demos but these are total shop quality and 5 of them are my “go to” hairs and that doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the other ones at all.

The group isn’t free and last time I checked it was 250Lds to join and I don’t think that’s changed.  You not only get 8 totally wearable and top quality Mina hairs you also get a discount on future purchases, 10% I believe.  TBH I often join paid for groups to grab the gift because if you look at what you’re getting then you still score yourself an amazing bargain.

So TP over to Mina’s to try the demo of Alexia first before you go to the FaMESHed event then just go to the right of the board with all the New hairs which are only at events at the moment and there is where you will find the hair…damnit stop rhyming!

The Dream.(Freebie & a Mina).

Just a fun summery piccie here because in RL I’m freezing my T*Ts off.

First, the freebie and again reg readers will know by now if it’s sporty clothing I snag it.  I don’t know how many sets of shorts n tops I have but I don’t care so there.  This freebie and there was at least 2 other, this is the one I preferred, are to be found at the Bliss shop.  The Bliss group is VIP but still free and so are the other 2 groups you have to join to get the other  2 free outfits.  Going by memory lots of sizes and with the 2 outfits, I opened both came with Huds and in this case I decided I rather liked the shorts not matching the top but you can choose your own preference.

It was the hair that got me back in-world because as soon as I saw a picture of it I just had to have it even though my SLing time was up.

This hair is extremely reminiscent of a very recent hair but Mina has given it that windswept look to it.  As someone who is trying to get a bit of movement or life into her pictures I love clothes and hair which have that extra bit of folding or suggestion of movement to them but even though this hair has all that it’s still totally wearable as just normal mooching around in SL hair.

The hair comes from the Shiny Shabby event and I have to be honest it’s not the best place for freebies but then again it’s been so long since I was last there you never know and since it’s on till the 15th it should have calmed down so I might just amble on over there.


OK if you have 50Lds you must join the !g0 Group NOW before the place becomes a heaving cesspit of grasping, greedy AV’s and Moi tomorrow.

Gocha Merlin, the owner of !gO not only has a damned fine and unique clothing range, it’s where I often chose to spend my Lindens, the group gifts are monthly and there is often also a new outfit with a colour which has been reduced for just the group members it along with Sn@tch are the 2 groups I have been a member of for an SL lifetime.  What Gocha Merlin also has is one of the BEST advent calenders going in SL and because this is a clothes shop it means CLOTHES in the unique !gO style.  Because as with most calendars only 1 box a day is opened but sadly for those who can’t get in-world once the day is over you can’t get it anymore.  So you really need to try to pop over every day to make sure you don’t miss out.

PS. Now I can’t remember if it’s now gone from a 24 day Calendar to a 12 day one but it does no harm to join now, go grab the GG and get yourself ready for the rampaging horde.
