Way to much. (Freebies & Cheapies & a NEW Mina).

A new small shopping mall has opened called Boulevard Illuminati and although not all of the shops so far have tenants those which do are some of SL’s most recognisable names including No Cabide which is where this freebie comes from.

I have a tendency to unpack and the first thing I find which has me going “ooo” is what you get to see.  I didn’t actually care for this at first as it’s just too pale a blue for me but the more I looked at it the more I like it.  You really do stand out in it, its form-fitting, simple and yet stylish.  There is a whole gift box of old gifts on the desk in the No Cabide shop.

From the quick scan I had of this shopping mall there seems to be some freebie/cheapies etc in the other shops and you will see scattered on the ground gift bags.  I think somethings come with a price tag but just a token price tag.  I’m heading back to grab the rest soon.

As for the hair it new and old at the same time.  Called Carian which is the same name as a very recent hair but that hair is a “hat/hair” and this is the hair without the hat.  At first, I couldn’t understand why but as soon as I put it on I could see that without the hat it’s just a very wearable hair.  As standard, you get a big colour hud and a styling hud and as standard, the link to Mina’s mainshop as this hair is only for sale at the new FaMESHed event and it’s not even worth trying to squeeze in there.  So try it on at Mina’s first and get the LM for a later date.

PS. Though, if you’re on a budget don’t buy this till I show you the other NEW Mina hair, trust me it’s worth the wait.

Totally random.(Upgrade & Mention of 10Ld Shoes).

I would love to spend more time learning more about SL and stuff but like most of us my time to SL is limited so when it comes to “Baked on mesh” I know F*ck All.

But I do know that if you have SLink Mesh bods then the free upgrade is now out.

This is me wearing it as it comes and I’ve not “skinned” it yet and maybe I won’t as it’s a new hud which looks a little bit complicated to a simpleton like me.  So I’ve popped my old bod back on and will spend some time studying this new one as there is no rush to change.

To get this update just head to the SLink shop, slap the redelivery kiosk and it redirects you to a page where you simply click to have your SLink body delivered to you.  It is slightly confusing in that you get both the old and the new version.  The one labelled “Redeux” is the new one.

PS.  The shoes I’m wearing is the 10Ld item.  I picked them up from the Enchante shop. I rejoined the group, only 10Lds, and then grabbed them and then realised I’m 90%  sure I have blogged these before but since I’m 10% not sure and since I’d already grabbed them here is the details.  These come with a colour hud, you get plenty of fits and they’re strappy.  There are other gifts in the Enchante shop and the other pair of shoes have been blogged and they’re super handy because of the hud.

PPS. Yes, that IS a Mina hair.  I don’t get a chance to wear this wild and wacky hair called Roosje that often so it made me smile to be able to wear it. Since this is one of her older hairs I think it will be upstairs….just saying.

I need to research more. (15Ld Cheapie’s, New Mina Group Gift & Mention of Freebies).

I did a post about the Ricielli shop not too long ago, sometime last month I think it was, and at that time the paid for hunt was still the Easter Hunt and although the prizes would lovely for any time of the year it was a shame there wasn’t new stuff and now there is NEW STUFF.

It’s now a Summer Hunt.  As always with the Ricielli hunt, there is a clear key which shows you what fits each prize comes in and what number you’re looking for. This time you’re looking for swim rings but I did spot that the Easter Hunt nests are still out.

This blouse was the only thing I bought but as it’s a lovely “soft butter” colour lovely with that tucked up effect.  If you really want to try a demo I’m pretty sure all of the hunt prizes are for sale in the shop, obviously the hunt is limited with the colour options, so if you really want to try before you buy check the shop out to see if there is a demo out BUT in all honesty you don’t need to.  This is a shop which has never failed with its fits and texturing and to get damned good stuff for just 15Lds is a real treat.

As always if you want to check out the older hunt prizes then leave the shop and follow the signpost “Sales, Shoes, Old Hunts, Gacha”  to the big building which houses all of the old hunt items. Still priced at 15Lds.

There is a Freebie in the Ricielli shop but it has been out for a long time and blogged many a time and so the chances are you already have it but the LM will take you right to where the freebie is.

Special mention to the hair.  It’s the NEW Mina group gift.  “Celeste” has that light windblown over the shoulder look to it.  I’m NOT wearing one of the colours it does come in as it may surprise you to know that I’m not actually in the Mina Group.  That hair comes in the “Dip Dyed” pack of shades and although some are pretty bold colour blends you also have some essential blends as well.  The Mina VIP group does cost 200Lds to join and you don’t just get this one but the area at the foot of the stairs to upstairs is where all the older Group Gifts are hoarded.  Make sure to grab the men’s hair as well because so many of her hairs are pretty unisex.  It’s the same for any men out there, grab the girls hair as well, Celeste maybe too feminine for a male AV but so many hairs will be just as wearable for you.  I keep on forgetting that there are also 2 Lucky Chairs in the Mina shop as well and if you’re in the group wearing your tag gets you 10% off a purchase.

I was hoping that the pants I’m wearing were freebies but I can’t track down where they came from but they did give me the link to the “Justice” shop and in the back of there are some free Group Gifts which I have blogged and the skirt and trousers there are excellent.  I don’t want to “reblog” them but make sure to check that link out as well…..you won’t regret it.

PS.  Yes there is more blabbing, I forgot to mention that the Ricielli prizes come in “copy, non-trans” or “non-copy, trans” and of course I chose the “non-copy, trans” which meant I kept the fits that work for me and popped the spare ones into my donation boxes.

My reward.(NEW MINA)

BOOM, Adulting is finished for the day and I did it like a Pro! So now I’m SLing like a Pro!

A NEW Mina hair always makes my day and Luane is the name of this hair.

The hairband looks like braided leather and you get a big 12 colour hud for that alone as well as the standard big colour palette for the standard price tag of 300Lds.   All the colours of the leather braid are in muted tones but the gold one really stood out it just didn’t go with my woolie jumper.

This hair is only available at Uber which starts today so you may as well pop over to Mina’s first to try the demo as of course this event will be packed.

You know what I’m going to say next and if not then you don’t read my posts, I wouldn’t blame you lol.  Do not buy before you’ve check out what else is in the Mina shop, although this leather braided look is totally new she has a really nice range of hairs held back with some lovely scarves.  So much so I logged in and checked where they were and got a pleasant surprise as 3 of them are actual Gacha prizes and it’s only 75lds a try!  So check the Gacha’s on the first floor and of course, you can still try the demos of even Gacha prizes and then check upstairs as there is also a hair called “Indica” upstairs in the area to you right at the top of the stairs.

I think most people will just concentrate on the hair on the lower floor but the hair upstairs is as good as downstairs.  Some of my fav hairs which I wear regularly are up there so it’s not a dumping ground for old stuff…although there are older hairs which are discounted and some still work as well now as they did then.

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.

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.
