Oops I did it again!(Flourish Event)

I went and bought something I already had but I ain’t mad.  Before I explain why, what, and where here is another Mina hair but my excuse for showing you another hair is that this one is ONLY….99Lds.

“Annie” is not an old dated hair dug out of her invent, dusted off and repackaged.  This is a pretty new hair and even though it’s at a discounted price you still get the full-colour palette AND of course the “style” hud. I’m not showing you the behind of this hair, there is a demo for you to try, but it’s a French Pleat style, you can have it either smooth and low or slightly higher with a teased look.

The “Oops” wasn’t the 3 backdrop pack for 99Lds I bought or the amazing boat for 90Lds which I grabbed before I even prim checked(20 prims) it was the LB (Little Branch) Orange Tree set because it turns out I already own it.  I’m not going to cry into my orange juice as it only cost me 88Lds and for that, you get a copy and mod tree which even better is SEASONAL!  Anyone who decorates/landscapes in SL knows that paying for seasonal items can, in the end, save you a lot of Lindens and almost as importantly a lot of time and again at 88Lds so CHEAP.

Everything at this event seems to be 100Lds and under.  I obviously went for the decor items but there is everything for everyone, shoes, clothes, hair, poses and of course landscaping and decor all laid out in a very attractively landscaped desert setting.

PS. If you love Puffins you will love what’s on the stall next to the boat lol.

It’s still Christmas. (15Ld Hunt & New Mina&Mention of Freebie).

I love the windlight setting on the Mina sim, it’s so freaking flattering.  I’m always tempted to drop her a note and ask for the details but she is one busy lady and I hate to bother her.

I’m still wearing jeans and glasses from my last post but the top I was wearing came from Ricielli and since it’s Spring/Easter time I popped over hoping that Ricielli has another one of their excellent hunts on and they do but it’s still the Christmas gifts.

My disappointment at nothing new was sweetened by the 2 prizes I bought.  As this is a paid for hunt there is a big poster with pictures of what’s in each box and more importantly, the sizes as not all the clothing comes in all the main mesh fits.  The clothes are shop quality.  I will say I was surprised as this top is supposed to be a mint colour and I don’t know if the sim lighting has changed it, doubtful, but it’s not mint.  NO complaints as I love this colour and down the back it has a flattened hoodie.

The second picture shows the other “prize” I treated myself to and this one deffo comes in the 2 colours the picture shows, this brown and a lovely dark green.

If you don’t know Ricielli then you won’t know that all of the old hunt gifts are stashed away in one of the buildings.  Still at the 15Lds prices but such a variety of casual wear, club wear, shoes, skirts etc.  To get there head out of the main shop and you will see a signpost, just click on the one for the emmm I think it said shoes/sale/discount etc something like that.

More hats now.

As you can see from these two pictures the hat/hair is very similar.  Hazel is the bottom picture and Fleur is the top.  Fleur is the newest hair although Hazel was only brought out a couple of weeks ago.

I will admit I much prefer Hazel, there is a ponytail down the back which you can even change the length of using the “style hud” but it’s the tendrils that frame your face I like the best and they too can be changed by using the hud.

Fleur, top picture, is so new you can only buy her from the Kustom9 event and again comes with a styling hud which is this case allows you to change the way the hair hangs down ie over one shouldn’t left or right or just simply hanging down the back.

PS.  I almost forgot there is a FREEBIE in the Ricielli shop, the LM takes you right next to it.  This is a stunning freebie but I know I’ve blogged it at least twice so I don’t really want to do it again.

Get floppy.(New Mina@FaMESHed & Freebie & Mention of Freebie).

All you regulars will know exactly what I’m going to say by now but I’m still going to say it, go and try the demo out for yourself in Mina’s main shop first.

“Tuula” is only available at FaMESHed and since it’s just opened and it will be lag Hell so why bother, just head on over to Mina’s main shop and try the demo of this hair lag-free before you make your mind up.

This hair/hat comes with the now standard for new Mina hairs a massive 30 shade in each hud pack, 5 textures for the hat and in this case 3 sizes to fit the hair hanging down over your boobies.  For me, the Woohoo factor is the inclusion of a hat only option.  Nothing wrong with this long hair but I finally got around to editing a short hair, a Mina hair as it happens, which can be worn with hats and it frames my face with subtle strands I just have to find the blinking thing in my invent now.

Can I just mention Gacha’s?  As a yard sale addict, I rarely see Mina hairs coming up for resale which is a reflection on how people must love the hair they’ve won even if they don’t get the shade they had wanted and I’ve just checked the SLmarketplace and it’s the same thing there, yes there are Mina’s hair but not as many as I would have expected and the reason I’m mentioning this is that if you like this style of hair then there is one in one of the Gacha’s at Mina’s.  That hat has a shorter brim and I can’t remember the details about the colour pack etc but all the info is on the Gacha itself so you can check it out but for 75Ld a superb bargain, the potential downside is that that particular Gacha has 2 styles of hats in it, the shorter floppy one and bowler hat which is actually pretty cute so if you don’t mind a risk check out the Gacha’s.

PS, The dress is a freebie and I don’t think I blogged this texture, I blogged the other shade in the pack but this texture suited the hat best.   The shop it comes from, Seniha has a NEW freebie out, but it didn’t go with this hat and tbh I wanted to show you the hat off more than the dress so check out the link to Seniha for this dress, the new dress plus all the other really good freebies and lucky boards.

A natural beauty.

I’ve just done a simply fabulous picture of me modelling one of the latest Mina hairs, I’ve pulled a fancy pose, photoshopped it to create a very stylish picture and then I thought sod it and I just took this snap of one of the other new Mina hairs just on the sim in the sim setting to show you how simple and good the Mina brand is.

This is how I look in SL, this is one of my go-to outfits, sorry nothing in this post is for a freebie it’s just me rambling on so feel free to ignore the rest of this post.

I wear my PumeC skin which is called”Agatha” about 95% of the time and although I do have a shade pack I have a tendency to stick to the palest one I have and just tart it up with makeup.  The shape is, of course, SLink Physique because you’ve heard me moaning enough about the lack of clothing for that particular fit and my Lelutka head which is the “Greer” one.  I also wear a FACE LIGHT! Yes, I am a face light addict, well not really because the one I use is so light it not only doesn’t cause light pollution for others I actually keep on forgetting I am wearing it.  My version is like Touche Eclat for AVs and if you use Touche Eclat in RL like what I do then you know this is an amazing light reflecting concealer…so try it if you haven’t’ lol.

Mina Nakamura has the knack of taking what works from one hair, restyling it and then incorporating it into a newer hair, so this reminds me of a hair I already own but this one is making the other one look more basic.  The tendrils which frame your face, the extensive colour palette and as with a lot of her new hairs the “style hud” has created yet another hair which will not just last the test of time but is so wearable as I am hoping you can see from this unedited piccie.  If you’re wondering the “style hud” allows you to change which shoulder the ponytail hangs down and if you zoom in closely, in this case, because we’re not inworld when I say “zoom” I mean to press your face closer to your computer screen lol you will be able to see the small bow shaped tie or keep it as a normal hair tie and with the hud you can change the texturing.

This is one of the new hairs and it’s called “Cienna”, Kayla is the one I wore in my last post and “Donna Mae & Donna Sue” are Gacha wins.  Each hair can only be purchased from the events they’re being sold at but as always…..TTDF (Try The Demo First) which is why all I’m giving you is the LM to Mina’s shop but you can also get the TP to the events from there as well.

PS.  Don’t forget to check out the Gacha’s in Mina’s main shop some great hair in there inc hat hairs at 100Lds so a great way to score a great hair at a great price…just take a chance on the colour.

Just a timely reminder.

Tee Hee, I know there is a new Mina hairdo but this isn’t it.

Yeah yeah yeah I know Valentines just around the corner but I know for a lot of people it’s a time for roses, champagne, romance and declarations of love but for others, it’s all about the Dom and Sub lol.

A couple of days ago I ended up visiting another shop in SL which has been around since I was a duck walking noob and it’s nice to see it’s upped its game.  Some of the furniture which has been kinked out to the max would blend into any home and some of it looks like it should be in a private dungeon but I think to have an item of furniture in your home which looks so innocent and yet you and your partner know it’s not that innocent.  Not cheap, but I think just by looking at the menu you’re paying for top class kink.  I’m only guessing though as I think you need 2 to play/test the menu as I think it’s one of those “VLP, PLV, LVP” or something like that, one of the systems which allows one AV to control another I will admit I’m a bit clueless about that sort of thing but just take a mate, partner or willing friend if you want to test out the menus.

A bit more affordable is this hair and another one from Mina’s.  Previously blogged but as you can see from the collar this one has that extra kink.  I’ve cut and pasted the first bit of the note which comes with this hair.

“Your Peanut N°9 collar is operated like most other popular collars. You have menus, chat commands and your partners can use the Virtual Disgrace(tm) Owner Remote to play with you. If you are totally, completely new to collars, please take a moment to skim through the first page of the open-collar.at manual (5 min. read)”

I’m wearing the wrong fit as you can see it’s slightly buried into my boob but the corset I’m wearing is just a very old one which is only in the S,M,L fits so it’s not the best and I put it on for one last wearing before I bin it.  I do know that this hair comes in 2 sizes and the slightly bigger boob even on this badly fitting corset fits perfectly.

If this hair doesn’t get your blood pressure up then there is another hair at Mina’s, long drapey with the sexiest blindfold in SL.

As always links in the bottom and the hairs are older Mina’s so you will just find them on the wall in her mainshop and of course DEMO firsts.

PS.  The scratches and blood on my face is one of the freebies from the Gacha Garden Event.  I don’t know if I or Faith will do a post about this event because you will probably know about it already or even visited it already.  Lots of gifts waiting for me to unpack when I log back in so my day is sorted.

“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.
