Get “Spendy” !(New Mina Hair& Freebie).

Nope, it ain’t working today, not only have I managed to delete all my pictures of “Tina” the new Mina hair but I’ve broken my eyes! So out of all the new pictures, I took this morning this is the best!

So a rather random post here.  The hair which you will have seen in a few previous posts is only available at Kustom9 of course at some stage it will be in the Mina main shop but as far as I know this round of Kustom9 will be over on the 10th so if you don’t want to wait for it to come back up for sale in her shop it’s time to TP.  It also means this very popular event will finally be nice and quiet which is a blessed relief.

You will have seen Tina plenty of times so check out my recent posts and you will be able to see her in different colours but check out this super “Kawaii Ombre” shade.

Tina, comes again as standard now with the bigger colour palette, material and non-material options etc all tucked into a very user friendly hud but she like a few other Mina hairs also comes with an “options” tab and those options gives you the choice of how you wear those pony tails and how your wear your fringe (bangs).

Back to the top picture and the outfit is the FREEBIE or in my case because I was lazy a Dollarbie because I picked this up from the WellMade Marketplace shop rather than the in-world shop where its set out for free.  There are other Dollarbies in the MP shop and because I didn’t go to the in-world shop I don’t know if they’re there as freebies but worth checking both out.

PS and yes when I get back in-world the first thing I’m going to do is sort out my “googly” eyes!

Cheekier than you think.(Freebies&SPAM).

Don’t I look the picture of innocence?

Such a sweet and innocent little bathing suit? till your scroll down to my crotch area, yup that’s a little bead, in fact, it’s a small row of them which act as the crotch of this little outfit.  It would be interesting to wear this in a busy place and see how many people spot it LOL.

So on the surface a sweet, simple little combo which can be worn as separates and comes in so many sizes there is a fit for you.  This and 5 other Freebies, but you have to join different but free groups to grab, is to be found in the ADRIS King shop.

Still not going to tell you much about the hair but feel free to pop over to Mina’s and try the demo out, make sure to check the option tag as you get a number of ways to style this hair as well as the colours.  Or you can TP over to Kustom 9 which is the only place you can buy “Tina” at the moment and since I’ve shown her so much already and the event goes on till the 10th August I’ll do a reminder post near to the end.

Alas, poor Faith when she gets over the SQUITZ and logs in she will have so many SPAM notes to read, or just bin LOL.

I forgot!(New Mina & Freebies).

I popped over to Mina’s to check out the details of my New Mina hair and here I am and I wonder who wears it better?(Meee of course LOL) .

Anyhow this hair is from the UBER event and lets be honest there is no way in heck are you going to be able to get into this event for WEEKS!  The place is packed but until you can at least you can try the demo on for this hair, Molly, and right next to it is another NEW hair in a really new and interesting style but that’s for a later post but of course, you can check that one out at the same time as you’re checking out the Uber one.

But as always walk around the Mina shop first.  The big blown out look of Molly is in a few of the other Mina hairs so to make sure to check the rest to find the best for you.  This isn’t a small shop but because it’s such a simple layout you’re not going to waste time wandering around and having to go up and down floors, but there is an upstairs just in case you’ve never noticed.   Of course, this new hair comes with the bigger colour pack and now the “material” and “non-material” option is now in the Hud and so you don’t have to change hairs if you want to help with lag reduction etc I have blabbed on about this feature before lol.

PS Yes this is the same free dress from my last post in yet another one of the shade options, I’m determind that everyone should go get this dress lol.

Then when I went outside to pull a few poses for this post on the lovely Mina’s sim but I ended up just snapping away.  Just going to show you one of them though.  The sim is open to all and there are some nice sitting and posing areas.  There are 2 houses up on the hills and I don’t know if Mina uses one but as always if in doubt don’t go in, it’s just rude lol.

I left my AV on the Mina sim when I logged off last night and this morning when I logged in I just started to work through my notes/notices and noticed a notice off Leginadaire a one quick TP scored me a rather good FREE for ALL dress.  I told you I get a lot of “notices” LOL.

I get so many things in my inbox it has to stand out from the rest for my tired eyes to spot it and this dress grabbed my attention from the start.

It’s the patterns, the dress itself is a simple design but the texture are very colourful and bold.  Out of the 4, I’ve actually chosen the 2 quieter ones. The dress comes in all standard mesh bod and standard mesh fits but as for the shoes! I forgot this dress includes shoes so I can’t tell you which feet they’re for.

To find this gift it’s just at the doorway of the Legendaire shop not inside.  I am in the paid for Legendaire group but I can’t remember how much that costs but I do know that GG’s are regularly put out and there is plenty of GG’s inside both on the ground floor and upstairs.

UPDATE because I logged in to LM grab and it turns out the Legendaire group is only 49Lds to join which is less that I paid so it’s a perfect time to pop in and check out all the GG’s and for that small amount you might find a whole load of new stuff.

PS It’s Ubers 3rd Birthday and we all know what that means…CAKE…OK not even sure if there is cake at this event but since most events that do celebrate their SL BD’s often do have FREEBIES I’m going to guess that there will be some.

It’s going to get hairy! (New Mina’s@The Hair Fair).

I am one lucky cow and trust me I know it, getting my sweaty paws on Mina’s hairs for free is an absolute treat and does save me money because if I didn’t get them for free and so many of them just “sing” to me, in the end, I would spend a fortune on them.  Although when you think about it, you really do get a lot of Linens for RL money. I’ve always said that skin and hair are the 2 things you cannot scrimp on and although occasionally you get a stunning freebie this isn’t often enough for a Cheap B* like me.  So this is the time to splash the cash and in this case, it’s for a truly worthwhile cause.

“Wigs for Kids” is the charity and who hasn’t heard of that cause and I’ve put the link down the bottom to check that out for yourself but really the title of this charity and the fact it’s been around now for a lot of years means most people will have heard of it.  I’ve also had a look at the pictures of what’s on offer at this event and I’m going over when it’s started to calm down and check out a few hairs and if in the end, they don’t look as good as I hope then I will simply donate and count my blessings and not my Lindens.

When you TP in there is a big sign that shows you the layout of the shops it doesn’t tell you which shop is where but the LM I’ve given does take you close to the Mina shop, walk forward and it’s the start of the left-hand row it’s actually easy once you’re there.  always looking at other hairs even if it’s just to compare them to Mina’s.

A nice touch is that when you land you get  sent the usual notice but also the option to have ALL of the demos sent to you and I will be doing that on my next visit as we have till the 16th to treat ourselves.

Now for 2 of the 3 New Mina’s and this is “Miss Mouse” ok that’s not her name she is called Emma and the first time I put Emma on I thought simple, sweet, understated. You wear this hair this hair doesn’t wear you.

Then we have THIS!

Check out that colour! I’m not big on colours and usually use chose from the browns/blonde/reds palette that I relate to but Woah this is just one of the many juicy Ombre Colours you can choose from.

Luna is the name for this very unique hair.  She like a lot of the New Mina hairs comes with not just the new 15 shade palette in each pack but you get the Material and Non-Material option in the Hud.  The “non-material” version is simply the same hair but just a bit less, and I’m not sure what I’m assuming a bit less texturing or mesh because to me I can’t see any difference but check it out for yourself.  A lot of the other hairs I have I also love but as soon as I put them on my …rockets up and so I have to wear them with caution as they can affect not just yours but other SL experience especially in busy areas.  Not many other hair makers offer this and now instead of having the 2 hair options in the pack Mina has loaded them into the Hud so super easy to change.  Also now more and more hairs are coming with other “options” so in this case with Luna you can have the full fringe and tendrils or just the fringe or no fringe and no tendrils.  So 1 hair 3 looks.  It’s the same with the third hair which isn’t being shown in this post but if you check out my last post and the hair I’m wearing is called Fiona and she is another Hair Fair hair.  With Fiona, the plaits can be changed to accommodate a more generous boob lol.  So basically when you get a Mina hair check out the “options” tab as you may be missing a little extra touch.

PS Can I just say that if you like Plaits which I absolutely adore make sure to check out the Mainshop.  Again you can try the Hair Fair demos out there first but Mina has some gorgeous plaited hair and you need to try the rest before you make your mind up.

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.
