My New BFF(A New Mina & Bargain).

Shelly is another New Mina hair and Mina Nakamura has taken some of the details off one of my other fav hairs and used it in this one.  The minute I tried this hair on I knew it is a perfect for the headdresses, flowers, tiara style hair and in fact when I went over to the Mina main shop to check out the demo and grab the LM  Mina herself has also used jewelry to accentuate this hair….so I was right lol.  Obviously, goes without saying it’s perfect without hair accessories as well.

Although it’s not too clear in this picture the hair is held back by a super loose twist of hair.

As always TRY the demo in Mina’s main shop, although when I went over to the Ultra event to LM grab it was nice and quiet we all know that can change in a heartbeat.  Plus on the wall with the New Hairs in the main shop there is about 3 or 4 of them now because Mina has been a busy bee.

Plus I want you to try “Myrtle”and you can only find her in the main shop as this is the hair I adore and it has the same lovely tied back hair detail but a shorter version with a fringe/bangs.

Now for a lovely bargain and if it wasn’t for the fact I price check almost everything I wouldn’t have known that this dress is only 20Lds.  A classic SL design but there is a whole rack of these really colourful and interesting textured dresses to choose from and I struggled to pick one.  I’m not sure if these dresses are set to 20Lds only for Group Members but it only costs 1Ld to join the group.  There are a couple of nice tops, and one for men, as well.  Plus don’t ignore the beachball.  Yet another item I randomly clicked on and bought for a Linden and scored some extremely bright.retro fun Flamingo leggings. The leggings come in the 3 main Mesh bod appliers but this dress comes in all the sizes.

PS If the LM to Utlra doesn’t take you straight to the Mina shop there it’s just up the first set of steps and turn to your right and it’s on the end.  Very close to the LM and easy to find.

You know she did. (Freebies).

It’s a Bank Holiday in the UK which means PJ Day for me and a TO DO list for him cos that new doorbell isn’t going to fix itself to the door lol.

Yes, I was pathetic enough for Faith to send me the Rare she won so I now have that and the unrare(sic) car I won parked outside of my house. They’re both so low primmed I can do that.

Now for the freebies, my RL maybe skanking it out in tatty PJs but my SL me is glamming it up in this super dress from the AnaMarkova shop.

The AnaMarkova is a paid for group and I am a fully paid up member because at 100Lds it’s a bargain.  I will admit though it’s been a long time since I’ve been over to snag any new GG’s that may have been set out but when I was grabbing this SL Frees and Offers (sic) gift set out for us I spotted a whole bookcase of the paid for groups gifts so if you have some spare Lindens you wouldn’t be wasting them if you did join the anaMarkova group.   If I get some more SL time today I will pop back change my group tag and grab them to see what’s what.

There are actually 2 Freebies for the SL Frees and Offers group this and a purple skirt/top set.  This outfit actually has 3 separate bits to it, a chain halter and a leather halter both of which come as separates which means you can also use them with other outfits as well.

PS The shoes from my last post go perfectly with this dress AND check out my Mina, this hair is called Chantel and she is one of the Gacha wins from her main shop and I’ve mentioned before how some of my Fav Mina hairs are actually Gacha wins andChantel is one of them, you can’t see from this angle but Chantel has a big loose bun.  So if you want a new hair with a big fat hair colour hud and it should be about the 100Lds you can beat trying one of the Gacha’s.

PPS Don’t worry even with the Gacha hair you can try the Demos first.

Time to escape the gym!(NEW BARGAIN MINA).

Yes, I am spoilt both with chocolate in RL and Mina hair in SL.  I was planning on being good but a friend popped over with a bag of “Thank You” Easter choccies for me and I fell for it, face first into the bag to be exact and now I’m sat here feeling as sick as a dog!  What’s even worse is that when you’ve eaten too much sweet stuff you crave something savory to counteract the sweetness but if I eat anything more I will EXPLODE!

Anyhow, I ended up with not just 1 but 2 New Mina’s, although I’m not showing you the second one just this one, Inkie.

Inkie comes in “Windy, Small Pony & Big Pony.  This is the Windy one and I’ve worn it in the last couple of post as well.  Mina now has a selection of hairs with that windblown look to them which isn’t just perfect for great photos but actually still very wearable even just pottering around in SL.

This hair is the small ponytail.

A nice cute, sporty little ponytail hair or for a more dramatic look you could try your luck for the “large ponytail”,

I say “luck” because these 3 hairs are Gacha wins from The Epiphany and that means you have to take a chance on the style and colour pack but it also means that you get to own a stunning Mina for just 75Lds!  But remember that in Mina’s main shop there is other Gacha’s from previous events and so if this hair doesn’t do it for you but you’re on a budget there is no better way than trying a bargain priced Gacha plus these aren’t just nasty hair knocked up they’re Gacha’s from previous big events so for a token price you can get yourself great hair.

But don’t rush over to The Epiphany event just yet as it’s beyond packed!  There is even a second sim but that’s packed as well but don’t worry as we have until the 15th of May which gives us plenty of time to saunter over when it’s calmed the F*ck down, but of course you might just catch it in a quite moment as well.

“Bunn” is the special buy  At first this one seems to be the least styled one of the lot but “Bunn” is perfect for accessorising.  You can dress this hair up with so much, tiaras, flowers, hair jewelry or keep it plain for a lovely simple ballerina style.

Now for the icing on the cake and it’s not the different styles of pony tails/colour packs it’s the “bangs” or as we call it the fringe.  Every hair comes with an options tab which gives you 3 ways of wearing the fringe, completely off, fringe only and fringe and tendrils.  So even more bang, or should that be “bangs” for your Lindens…ok I’ll stop it with the jokes.

To win “Bunn” what happens is when you rezz your Gacha prize, any prize, if you don’t want to keep it then follow the instructions that come up and you can return it for points and with these points you can use them to purchase one of the specials which is on each Gacha stand.   Follow the link to the Seraphim web site for pictures of everything and LMs.

Time for me to hunt for a new clothes so I can finally escape my gym LOL.

New Colours New Mina.

I knew it! So I’ve been trotting around SL for the past couple of days with my New Mina hair on (you may have spotted it in my last few posts) but the first time I put it on I picked one of the brown shades at random and my first thought was “this is new?” (OK I lie, all I was thinking about is food which is basically what I think about all day) and then I changed the shade and didn’t really give it much thought but Damn! I was right.

In fact, the note that came with the hair says…

“And some exciting news! I worked on all the textures to give the hair more natural flair and added colors to the different color packs!
5 new browns, 5 new reds, 5 new blondes and 5 new pastels! So more colors in your HUDs!”

Holy Crap this means you now get 15!!! shade’s in each pack and just look at the detail in this picture, taken in the sim setting I was on but it’s very similar to my usual Nams setting.

OK, I’m going to be vague here.  When updates happen in SL it takes the creator time, effort and even money to bring out these new updates across their whole range.  So as far as I know this is the only hair I have with the super sized 15 shades but I could be wrong and Mina could have updated her whole stock or just the newest hairs as they come out or even just this hair BUT as I always say try before you buy and you will see for yourself.  I have a feeling though that the 15 shade range will be pretty standard for her new hairs and when you consider her hair packs only cost between 300-350Lds what a bargain.

As always Mina makes the best Gingers in SL!  Her reds/gingers are stunning.  There was an article in the Daily Mail about a photographer who has take pictures of true redheads to show off their real beauty and it made me green with jealousy.

I’m pretty sure this milky blonde is a new shade as well.  The fact that you get 15 shades in each pack means you get everything from this lightest of blondes all the way through the shades till you get to light brown etc

Even a hardened brunette like me still loves the blondes.

I’m not a Kawaii person but even the pinks, pastels and ombre shades look so good esp on an adult skin because sometimes I find these shades are more suited to much younger skins so to find one that blends so well to an adult skin is good.

Is it just me or does anyone else would think this would also make a superb mans hair as well?  Of course and I know I repeat myself but Mina also has some of the best men’s and unisex hairs in SL and some superb hat/hair combos which is why I always put the link to her inworld shop so you can try before you buy.

Plus if you’re on a budget she has Gacha’s in her shop from old events and they too are super bargains 100lds or less a try and although you have to take the risk on the shade pack you get the full shade pack (pre price increase shade pack). Some of my fav hairs are actually Gacha wins.

PS The demo for Arwen is in Mina’s main shop but also the shop at the Ultra event plus there is a small selection of Mina’s hairs and even some of the Gacha’s I was talking about.  If the LM doesn’t take you to the Ultra shop then just walk ahead up the steps and it’s to your right.

Heads Up.

I finally managed to get over to the massive Food Fair charity raising event and I will put the link to Faiths post all about it the charity involved, the people involved etc READ IT!

I was going to have a nice morning sauntering around  now that it’s finally calmed down but VANITY won and I ended up pulling some poses on one of the stage set ups at this event.

I wasn’t even going to show you my New Mina but damn I look so good the RL me is as jealous as Hell!

This New Mina hair is from the latest FaMESHed event,  Which I’m not even going to try to squeeze my freakishly skinny AV into(unless there are Freebies there, in that case, I will defy the lag and grab any goodies) and I will wait till it calms down. Because I wasn’t going to show you “Indy” I haven’t taken all the pictures of what’s special about her.  You can see on the back is a big fat juicy bun and lots of tendrils but when you open the Colour Hud and click the “options” tab you can actually wear it 3 ways, the one shown one with no fringe and a few tendrils and one without any fringe or tendrils but as always I’ve put the LM for Mina’s shop so you can try out the demo and remember to check out the new Group Gifts (not free to join).

Here’s a bit of randomness….Mina’s house on the hill.

xxxminahouse

I was just stood outside of Mina’s mainshop and since we’re tarting up our own sim I’m checking others out for inspirations and I’ve decided to pack my bags and move in here for a while…I wonder what she would think if I started to squat in her houselol?  Such a lovely building and sim setting so I’ve taken a quick snap and I’m now at Ionic to check out the price of this house and of course to see if there is any goodies for a “.

Last bit of randomness, make sure to check out this weeks FLF(Fifty Linden Friday) as there is some super decor items, a couple of pieces of clothing which are worth a whole lot more than 50Lds and here’s a shocker a super hair for only 50Lds.  I’ll put the link to the pictures for you to check out for yourself and you can TP direct to the sellers.

Heads Up!

Soooo I went over to Mina’s to find out what “BishBox” is and the place is HEAVING, worse than my old cat.  Turns out there is a DISCOUNT SALE going on of 30% off and damn everyone is there! So I just slapped the BishBox info board, next to the reception desk and Event hairs,  and TPed out of there.

BishBox is one of the new crazes in SL and that’s a monthly sub box and in each box, you get a shed load of surprises and treats and stuff.  OK I’ve paid very little attention to this monthly sub boxes because I’m a CB(Cheap B*tch) and these boxed don’t come cheap or at least cheap enough for me BUT in RL I’ve had 2 of these sorts of sub boxes, Degusta and Birch Box and I have LOVED them very much, each month a box of goodies and yes occasionally it’s a case of “meh” but the excitement of getting that box and occasionally coming across a product you would never have tried but found that it’s perfect for you is the icing on the cake……so this is the same sorta thing but in world.  Anyhow BishBox is a brand new name to the monthly subscription market and the blurb in the note says.

“BishBox is a NEW awesome monthly subscription box for the wild and crazy grrrls in SL! It’s full of awesomely edgy, urban, punk, wild, flamboyant, bold clothing and avatar accessories for those strong-willed and confident!”

It also says more about how you can win a FREE BishBox for yourself by doing….sod that go get yer own note!

PS So be quick as the 30% will be finished today  PLUS you will need to pay the full amount and then the 30% is returned to you straight away.

I’m Gonna Make You PAY for this! but don’t worry it’s a bargain priced Gacha.

So I’ve done my cheapy for the day so now I’m going to make you pay, for this New Mina hair.  Hair and skin are almost the last things that you have to pay to get the quality, fortunately there is a couple of top quality shops out there who do an occasional amazing free gift for skins and hairs such as Dura and Ann Hurley but the reality is that quality is few and far between so my aim in SL is to make you save Lindens on the stuff I can find for free so you can spend your Lindens on great hair/skin.

Firstly ignore the top as it’s an old freebie and long gone, although I might just check that out because I could be wrong, it’s the hair I want to show you.

I want this hair in RL, I want this short slightly scrappy cut, cutie hair but then again I also want thick flowing locks or a ratted Bee Hive look I wish changing hair in RL was as easy as SL.

This hair called Anika, that’s the same name as the top I’m wearing which is why I’m using this top LOL.  Anika is only available at the new round of The Epiphany and I’m NOT GOING TO GO,  mainly because I’m too poor and there is too much temptation!

Mina doesn’t stint on her hairs even the ones is the bargain 75Ld Gacha because as I’ve said previously you do get a colour pack so 5 shades of blondes, brunettes, reds (the best red hair in SL) all in a simple to use Hud and I almost forgot that a lot of Mina hairs come with 2 styles, sometimes the difference can be very slight but sometimes it still makes all the difference.  I decided to do a quick log in to check out the second version in the pack and I couldn’t help but take a quick snap just as I was on my working platform with no pose because SOD IT my AV is GORGEOUS just like the real me…stop sniggering!

PS Remember the Epithany is special because if you don’t want to keep what you win or end up with too many of the same things then DO NOT UNPACK them.  A pop up menu pops up giving you the option of keeping or trading it in for points and with these points you get to treat yourself to a special that can only be purchased with these points and in Mina’s case it’s a beautiful hair flower.

Follow the link to the Seraphim web site, an amazing scource of all things SL, for the piccies and lMs and don’t panic if the place is packed because it’s on for a whole month.
