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.

Isabella or Bridget? (Freebie & New Mina).

I love using the sim Mina’s main shop as a backdrop but I hadn’t expected that is a new hair so that was a lovely bonus for me.

First the Freebie.

I knew I had blogged either this outfit or a very similar one so much so I actually scrolled back through my pictures and it turns out that I did on the 14th or 4th of April but it’s harder to find the post about it.  I am pretty sure that that outfit I previously blogged didn’t come from Poeme and didn’t have the hud which this one does so I’m risking a “reblog” and showing it to you.

I also spotted a free sleep mask on one of the tables plus on the wall behind the desk are other freebies and Lucky Boards.

As for the hair.  The top one is brand new and if you look you can see Mina is working the strands into curls.  You all know I now say check out the rest of the shop for the other hairs which have similar styling to them.

This hair is one of her old ones called Bridgette and she’s one of my fav hairs.  As you can see it has a more crimped look than the curls but you may prefer crimped to curled.  Anyhow as always LM for both shops below.

PS.  The LM takes you to a platform and you TP to either to Ballade or Poeme and I’ve not checked Ballade out yet.

I’m a Potato & Sunday is sorted.(LOTS of FREEBIES).

This is going to be a long post so I will break it down into bite size pieces.

The blouse is one of the hunt prizes from an event called “Party People Fair & Hunt”.

What you’re looking for is cute little potatoes and there are so many of them that in just the short distance I walked from the LM to the stalls I think I picked up about 8 of them.  Then I logged out did a quick google and found the link for pictures of what’s for sale and what are gifts.  The sale items are in the first picture and the gifts are in the second.  All of the hidden potatoes are in the middle of this sim, it’s a maze, and so badly hidden even a numpty like me had no problem.

Party People Sale & Hunt Prizes Pictures

Party People LM

The hair is a Mina one and it’s a Gacha Win from of course The Arcade. I’ve not even tried to get in there! I mean OMG is it even worth trying for at least 2 weeks? Naturally, I got mine sent to meeeee.  I usually when given the option “style” my hair with the hair tendrils hanging down framing my face but in this case, the fit of those scarves is just too good. I’m wearing the rigged version but if need be there is an unrigged version. From what I could see if you win one of the hairs in the Gacha you get a random shade of hair and a preset hud of scarf colours, the other prizes are of the earrings and other scarf huds.  Since I’m not a jewellery wearer I’m not sure I’d be too keen on winning them but they are really good earrings, I know you can’t see them from this angle but they’re quality hoops and beads and can be worn with anything.  TBH I’m cutting this short and putting the LM not only to just the Mina’s main shop BUT also to the Seraphim Yardsale.

Mina’s Main Shop.

Seraphim Yardsale

The Seraphim Yardsale is the place to go to if you want your fix of Arcade prizes but don’t want to wait and don’t want to risk not getting the prize you really want.  All of the items are laid out in a very neat and orderly way.  I’ve already picked up a couple of items I wanted without the stress of actually going to the Arcade itself.

The reason I’ve added a bit about the Seraphim yardsale is because of the Mina hair. It is rare to see a Mina Gacha hair up for resale, people are just happy with their prizes and I just never see them but I’ve noticed that the earrings and scarf huds have been boxed up for resale at the Seraphim yard sale.  So if you want the earings but not the hair or you want a different scarf hud OR if you want to get rid of the earrings or a scarf hud then pop over to the Seraphim Yardsale, they have made it super easy to buy and sell but there is a group joining fee to be able to do this but if you end up with a lot of unwanted stuff then think about packing it up and letting someone else buy it.

LAST chapter.  I know Faith did a post about the “Tres Chic” event and now that everyone has rushed over to The Arcade it means this event has finally calmed down!  So I went and grabbed all of the Birthday gifts and although I’ve not even started to unpack I have a sneaky suspicion there are some decent prizes in there inc SHOES!

Tres Chic

Sunday is sorted, I’m just about to click “Publish” do some RL work I have to do and then in a little while I can log back in with a guilt-free conscience, do the whole Party People event and then settle down on my platform and work my way through all of the goodies I’ve picked up.

One for me.(New Mina@Salon52 & 10Ld Dress).

This dress is more “me” than the previous ones in the last post.

Again from the sYs Marketplace shop, if you’ve not read my last post then scroll back and check that one out for some exc offers.  There is a Dollarbie in this style but it’s black however there is a lot more colour options and each one only costs 10Lds and I’m wearing the nude shade.

I’m really pleased with it, very pretty, casual and summery.

This is the back of my new Mina, called Serene.

I know and you lot will know that Mina has a brilliant range of plaited hair, short, long, super long etc she has them so as always LM to the main shop to try them all on before you decide which one suits you best.

PS.  Do you remember the “The Walking Dead” dreadlock hair I mentioned a few posts ago?  I saw a male AV wearing that hair in the shop as I LM grabbed and wow he stood out, he looked so different from the crowd.  In a world of cool sexy people, he was cooler than most lol.

As for the hair I’m wearing it comes from the latest round of Salon 52.  I knew Salon 52 was open but like a fool, I couldn’t see it on the Mina sim and it’s because it’s not on the Mina sim lol. I think it’s probably an event which changes location each time so don’t use your old LM or a Mina LM use this new one.

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.

Just a tease and reblog.(Freebies inc).

I just had to do it.

No that’s not Mina Nakamura in the background it’s her Bot…a Bot with attitude!

You may have noticed I’ve been wearing the same hair in a couple of recent posts and it’s because it’s a New Mina.  This one doesn’t come with anything other than the colour, no bells and buttons to change this hair so what you get is a classic easy to wear hair, everyday hair.  The way it frames your face and curls at the neck it’s just so right and you know what my RL hair is almost identical to this both in style and colour!!! My parting is slightly to the left rather than in the middle but it could be meee…ok ok it’s a stretch to think I look anything like my AV lol but at least we both have BANGING hair lol.

Anyhow this isn’t available yet because….drum roll….it’s going to be available at the next round of FaMESHed which starts on the 2nd.  This might be a real treat for us Cheap B*s as it is it’s 7th Anniversary and we all know that a lot of SL birthdays/anniversaries=FREEBIES!  I can’t promise you that there will be any freebies and TBH I am not even going to try to get into this event for a week or so after it’s started but you might just spot a gap for you to squeeze in and check it out.

To make up for teasing you with the hair I’m going to do a reblog for the top and jeans.  The top is one of the Blueberry GG’s, just like the hair a fab everyday wear item and even comes with the usual big hud of colours/textures (this is “Jolly Hollidays” gift)the same can be said about the jeans which come from Shiva.

When you walk into the Shiva Shop on the wall to the right of the desk is a picture of the jeans in all the colours but you will spot that these are marked as “promo” and cost only 1Ld.

Get Wet! (Freebies).

I was at an event where I spotted an interesting dress but since I’m a Cheap B* and it had a price tag, I got the shops LM and with Bento fingers crossed TPed over and found freeness.

This little “Spring top & Thong” set is actually so simple and so pretty I will be keeping it.  You get a hud with some pretty floral textures AND it comes as separates AND you can change the texture on each piece which I should have just to show you.

This is another one of the freebie.  You get a good size hud and fits.

While I was in the “Red Girl” shop I grabbed a couple of demos, click on the picture to have the demos sent to you.

There are 2 Groups, one is free and the other is for the VIP’s and has a group joining fee of 100Lds BUT there are some nice items of clothing in that group and, I spotted a 250Ld Gift card with the Group gifts. I know the jeans demo I tried on cost 199lds so I could join the group and pay 100Lds and with the gift card buy the jeans so in the end they’d only cost me the 100Ld it cost to join the VIP group and I’d still have 50Lds left on the card and I might be able to put it towards the top I was interested in…decisions decisions decisions.

BTW The dress is one of the “Red Girl” group gifts but you will see gifts for other free groups and the first gift I’m showing you is the Avantgardista group gift.  The invited for those groups are just above the gifts.

PS. The hair is one of Mina’s interactive hair.  I’m pretty sure this is the first “Wet to dry” one she brought out, called Sandra.  I think the “wet look” was so popular that she added a permanently wet hair to the pack but if you remember with this hair, you dip your nogging into I think system water and it goes from dry to wet then whip out the wearable hair dryer and blast your hair back to dry.  Make sure to try the demo if your interested to see how it works as I’m just going by memory.
