“Only the sexy people”.

I’m such a lucky little AV, again and I know I say it BUT if I had to pay for my Mina hair I would pay for it which is the only reason I blog for Mina and no one else.  Actually, I sorta lie because I would avoid the Mina shop like the plague knowing I’d probably go too spendy.

I’ve been wearing a new Mina hair called “Tiffany” in a few of my recent pictures and here she is in her full glory.

I changed our sim to Optimums skin n prim setting to show you how she looks but of course yada, yada, yada, you know the drill lol.

Tiffany is a thick and glorious hair with lots of strands woven in to waves.

I usually stick to my brunettes, reds and blonde packs but this one out of the pastel shades, inc ombres, is just so bold and bright. I normally avoid the grey shades in any hair pack as grey to a lot of us just looks like something hasn’t rezzed properly but there is no way you would think this grey wasn’t properly rezzed.  I’d actually love to have my RL hair professionally dyed to look grey as I’ve seen people with this done and it looks amazing but that would cost me an arm and a leg but in SL it only cost 300Ld and my RL me can just keep on dreaming.

As what seems to be standard with a lot of the newer Mina hairs this one also comes with not just the massive 30 colour options in each pack but also the “style hud” which allows you to change the way your hair hangs.  I never really mention it but if you can’t make your mind up then you could always choose the Essentials pack and I think that’s 350Ld but you get all the main colours from each option.

I always think that when a creator in SL or RL has the “competition” literally on their doorstep it’s because they have the confidence that their products will still stand out and that’s the case here.  This new Mina can only be purchased from a brand new event called “Salon 52” and it’s in a new building right next to Mina’s main shop. I finally managed to squeeze into this packed event but all I could do is cam and I’ve spotted a few things I am looking forward to trying on.

PS. The “Beautiful People” were man and woman who were on voice and they had the sexiest mofo accents ever! Sadly I have a thick Geordie accent and a tendency to sound whiney..so sexy!

It’s crowded and I’m bored.(Old Freebie).

I’ve been TPing in and out of Mina’s all day because on her sim is a new hair event and the sim is heaving BUT the doors, or rather the barrier lines, are not open to this event.

Apart from the fact that there is a New Mina hair I can’t really tell you much more about this event but like everyone else I have cammed and some if not all of the biggest names in SL wig making are at this event so it should be interesting, to say the least.

I did have a chuckle as some people didn’t just cam they actually clicked and grabbed some demos and were trying them on on the other side of the ban lines because you just know we cannot resist a new hair do, lol.

As I was stood there I was rummaging through my invent and came across my beloved roses headdress.

You know I don’t have the time or patience to wear many accessories, Hell I don’t even wear knickers in SL, but I have a soft spot for floral headdresses and own so many.  So I TPed over to Aisling which is where it came from and it’s still there.  This and a few other items, mainly decor, are free for all and if you only have space for 2 things get this headdress and you may spot the 1st-anniversary gift of a potted plant and even though that is God knows how old it’s as good now as then.

PS,  If you do visit Mina’s you might just recognise where I am standing.

PS.  Ignore the dress, it is a group gift and lovely which is why it’s a “keeper” but it cost 100Lds to join that group and although the gifts are good there isn’t anything new and in fact I don’t think there has been anything new for emmm maybe a year or so.  If you do want to join the group to grab it and the other freebies drop me a note inworld and I will send you the LM.  The dress does come with a small texture hud and 3 of them are so pretty.  There is also, oddly since the shop is a clothings shop, small trees in hessian sacks I believe and they are brill.

No Freeness here!

Getting classy AF here.

SL is a lot of things to a lot of people but one thing we all love is playing at dressing up and with this Junbug gown and the new Mina hair I briefly mentioned it’s easy to look amazing.  Sorry neither are freebies, although I have a feeling that this dress was either a Group Gift or I took advantage of one of the regular FLF offers that Junbug has, because you know I won’t have paid full price for it lol.  I am in the Junbug group which cost 200Lds to join but I for one have been more than happy with the gifts given over the years and the FLF offers so you might want to think about joining that group.

But this post is about “Leslie” which is the STUNNING hair from Mina Nakamura.

I took these pictures in my fav Nams prim n skin setting but the rooms I have used have darkened the pictures slightly, part of me thinks I should have lightened the pictures a little bit but then again I know you will try before you buy because no matter how good it looks on me each and every AV is different but overall Mina’s hairs fit and suit everyone.

In RL when I look at classic paintings when there are fabric and pearls I press my face as close to the canvas as the security guard will allow me as I’ve always been fascinated how those 2 textures can be replicated with a few strokes of a paintbrush and it’s the same with Mina’s hairs.  Just look at the way the hair has been swept up or randomness and the strands loosely hanging down it’s all of this detailing which makes this so stylish.

This hair comes with the “style hud”, which a lot of the newer Mina hairs come with, and that allows you to wear the hair with the strands hanging down or swept back and tucked behind the ears and for once both looks suit me right down to the ground.  This hud also allows you to change the colour of the pearls, white and pearly pearl and their glow factor or to simply remove them.  This style of hair is perfect for adding your own tiara, crown, flowers or headdress to it.  She has a few other hairs with this oversized bun on top and it’s just such a good style and as it happens I decided when I logged into SL to get the Mina’s LM I would do just that and I added a tiara to this do and with the pearls already in the hair it was unbelievably pretty and classy but I didn’t save the picture I took!

This hair is only available at Uber and I wish you luck getting in, I actually managed to get in but in the end, I decided it wasn’t worth the struggle and I’d go back once the place had calmed down.  But as always the link to Mina’s main shop will be put first so you can try this demo out.

AND although this is at Uber the prizes ain’t “uber ridiculous”…ONLY 300LDs for this hair and as always a massive 26 colour pack!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog so you can get the LM’s and see what’s else is for sale.  The Seraphim has the pictures listed alphabetically so scroll down to the M’s and you will see the picture of this hair and the details and you can also see the shades you get in each colour pack for yourself or of course pop over to Mina’s and grab the demo for yourself.

PS.  I don’t think there is any gifts at this event, the Seraphim blog doesn’t usually mention if there is and as I said the place was heaving so there may just be goodies for us.

UPDATE: I found the picture..

As I said when I was at Mina’s I decided to try out a Tiara and you will notice I have changed the setting to the hair being swept back behind my ears and as you can see it’s a perfect updo for wearing all your hair bling with.

I’m having a moment here! (Free Mina hair!)

What! A free Mina and I had noooo idea!  I was so happy I whipped out my sparker lol.

I don’t even already own “Mabel” this is completely new to me and the whole Mina range so this isn’t just one of her stock hairs reduced to zero and set out as a gift this is a brand new style! Not only that but you get 15 shades in the hud which is pretty generous of her.

I’d finally managed to get over to FaMESHed where Mina has her newest hair, Sira which is a hair with a beanie and a styling hud, but it was still so busy all I could do was start grabbing the gifts under the Christmas tree and as soon as I’d grabbed the one with this Mina gift I had to stop and TP home and I am so happy with it.

Mabel, as I said, is a brand new style, even though Mina has a range of ponytailed/pigtailed hairs the addition of a retro raised crown gives this hair a unique slant.  I’d buy it, I used to buy Mina hair before I was lucky enough to be taken on as a blogger for her shop and if I wasn’t a blogger I wouldn’t go to her shop anymore because it would be too hard to walk away without buying something and I would spend way too much! A girl has her Tier fee to think about lol.

Anyhow what a lovely surprise and a generous gift is to be found at the FaMESHed event but if you would like to try out the new hair, Sira, then I’ve put the LM to Mina’s main shop as the demo is there.  If you’re interested then Sira cost, for a hud that gives you styling options, fab beanie textures and massive 30 shade palettes, only 300Lds!

PS.  I didn’t forget and today’s !g0 Advent gift is a beanie hat/hair.  I’ve not taken any pictures but make sure you pop over for yourself.

FINALLY IT’S STARTING!

I’m finally starting to get less Grinchy and more Christmassy and 3 things have helped. The first is I can finally decorate my SL house with lots of sparkly stuff, the second is !g0 has started it’s Christmas Advent Calendar. this is one of the best Advent Calendars events in SL and I try not to miss a single day as sadly once the day has passed the gift is sealed up and you can’t get them retrospectively…unless it’s changed since last year.  It does cost to join the !g0 group but that has always been a piddling 50Lds and you do need to be in the group to grab each daily gift.  I’ve not opened it yet but I did spot it comes in ALL mesh fits so no probs there.

The third and bestest thing is my NEW MINA and not just a new “do” but a NEW BEANIE MINA!

There is so much to this hair I ended up taking so many pictures even I got confused so I will stick to this basic one and try to explain it.

You get 3 Huds in your pack, 1 to change the hair colour, 1 to change the beanie and the last 1 to change the styling of the hair.

Just pick the shade pack you like best, and remember you get a massive 30 and totally different shades in each pack and were not just talking going from light to dark brown but just browns in all the shades you get in RL.  I did also notice that the red pack seems to some very new and unique shades which I certainly haven’t noticed before. Lots of other shade packs if you want a bit more to your hair colour, pastels, ombres, black/white etc some are very dramatic.

The Beanie hud has 10 textures in it and although I’m wearing one of the snowflake texture there are some without but its subtle enough that this can be worn any season.

Finally the “styling hud”.  This gives you 6 ways to style your hair. Hair down one shoulder or the other shoulder or both shoulders or neither shoulder and just hanging down the back but there are 2 new way.  This hair comes with a light windblown look to it and you can have it only lightly blown away from the face or a bit stronger.

That’s, why you need to try so you too, can see what it looks like on you before you make your mind up, believe it or not before I pick up a new Mina I too always try on a demo.  It’s rare but no hair will fit every AV.

BTW This hair is only available at “FaMESHed” but expect it to be heaving AND if you do go to Mina’s mainshop don’t panic as she doesn’t have the picture up yet but click on the “new” boards and you can still get the demo, she will probably have the picture uploaded to the board pretty soon as she does keep on top of her new products.

Mina doesn’t do an Advent Calendar but for her joining fee of 250Lds even Faith got tempted by her last Group Gift so check those out and if you are in the Mina group already just remember to wear your tag when buying as you do get a discount.

Change of mind! (New, Kinky, Mina).

I know nothing about “Peanut no9” or “RLV”? or whatever, I am as Vanilla as that tub of ice cream in our freezer but I know this sort of thing is popular both in RL and SL.

This is Kim and she comes with the attached collar which is a “Peanut no9 Collar” controlled one.  Don’t worry if it’s new to you or it’s something you want to know more about as a full explanation note is included.  Actually Peanuts aside this is such a pretty hair, I LOVE the way the strands are under the collar and even worn as an every day wear it has that kink edge to it which will have people looking twice, it also has NEW colours as well.

BUT

If you’re wanting another hair with a bit of “kink” just not so much kink as the collar gives you then check this hair out.  I hated the original pictures I took of “Eden” so when I was over at Mina’s I decided to give it a second try and I am much happier with this picture.

Again it’s the way the strands of hair are woven under and over the blind and although you can’t see it the blind is tied in a very realistic knot. I often wear this hair just walking around which may seem odd but sometimes it’s nice to be just that little bit different and again I love the little kinky twist.

This hair called “Eden” is in Mina’s main shop as she is an older hair, but with the new big colour hud, and you will find her pretty darn close to the old Group Gift areas, hint hint, to the right of the reception desk and again although you can try the demo for Kim in the shop you get that from the FaMESHedX event.

In case you haven’t noticed it that’s an “X” on the end of the FaMESHed LM.  This is a new and very adult-themed event so adults only but if you can’t or don’t want to go to an adult-themed event don’t worry as I’m sure it won’t be long afterward when Kim can be bought from the Mina main shop.  Don’t worry though because this is one of the classier themed kinky events and even Apple Fall has a stall there with some very unusual decor items so it’s worth going just to look at them lol.

PS.  Yes I did have to edit out one of the nips as we’re only allowed 1 nip slip lol.

Save to spend.(New Mina).

As someone who takes pictures all the time, I LOVE hair and clothes that have a windblown look to them.

The hair, not the hat, is called Karen and this is one of the more dramatic windswept hair’s so not everyone will find it a wearable look for them, unless they too love to take pictures and in that case you will love this hair even more.  It won’t surprise you when I say that you need to check out her main shop not only because this is where you buy this hair but Mina also has a really lovely range of hairs that have a windswept look to them, some are very subtle ie a few strands across the face and one where it looks like you’ve stuck your finger in a socket so shop around first.

You will see the stand this hair is on is for something called “FaMESHed Go” which is relatively newish.  Buy this hair the same way as normal but if you want to check out the other brand new designs then grab the hud and you can scroll through their offers and using the Hud TP to the shop.

PS.  This hair cost only 300Lds and you get a massive 30 shades in each colour pack hud AND a styling hud which in this case will change the way your hair is flowing.
