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.

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.

Free everything – but me !

Did the “BOO at Blacklace” hunt this morning – totally free and really good fun. You have to find the pumpkins – lots of dummy ones scattered around but fairly easy really. Now I recall Blacklace from wayyyyyy back in the day, and I have to admit their stuff is still really cool. There are other stores participating so you can find poses and props, clothing and of course lingerie. Im showing the tee and thong (both come with a Hud for additional patterns & colours) that I found and really liked enough to hang on to – fear not you non mesh body peeps! I found plenty of old fashioned clothing layer gear also.

Player has bought me a lot of jewellery lately from a store called Cae, I popped over and found not only is the group free to join but there are heaps of group gifts to bag! I’m wearing one of the necklaces above – really sweet stuff and very well made. Zan has mentioned the Mina new group gift so I wont waffle on – its a paid for group, cant recall how much but the new gift is Sanne, gorgeous long back plait and styling hud for the fluffy front bits.

Scrunchy Wunchy.(Freebie, Cheapie and it’s time to join).

I LOVE AUTUMN!  I nestle like a little hamster in my chair with throws, crafting stuff, a murder program on TV and if I’m lucky a cat on my lap.

Who doesn’t love an oversized woolie which allows you to eat that extra piece of cake or slice of toast in the morning?  This one is FREE from Amiable.  You get 2 versions, orange and this is the yellow colour and although the editing has deepened the yellow I’m shocked that I actually like this shade better than the orange.  Comes in all the mesh fits which in this case isn’t really needed because as you can see from the design it’s a “one size fits all” design.

There are lots of gifts at Amiable which you probably already have had at some stage but if you’ve never been there you’re in for a treat.  If you like this top and want it in a different shade then for 10Lds you can join the Teleporthub group and get this in that shade.

There is a new Group Gift at Mina’s and I DON’T HAVE IT! Whaaaa?

I’m going to have to check this out BUT it looks like the Mina joining fee is now ONLY 200Lds! TBH it was only 250Lds before and considering how much you get even at that price a cheap way to score some great hair AND 10% discount on each purchase.  I’m going to assume it’s going to be at this lower 200Ld for the foreseeable future but “don’t delay join today” urk cringy.

There is a LOT of hair in the group gift area to the right of the event boards, however, the newest GG is at the landing spot so grab that first before you get the rest which you will find to the right of the “event/new boards”.  I don’t actually have the new GG called Sanne but I can see it has 2 of the features Mina’s hairs excel at and that it has a lovely detailed plait going down the back and a “style” hud which allows you to change the way the strands of hair hang and frame your face.

PS.  There is a version of a hair I wear a lot called “Arwen” but this is the bloodied version so perfect if you want a subtle and yet Halloween hair and make sure to check out the rest of the shop as there is other “Bloodied” hair plus although I’ve not worn it yet Blair with it’s exaggerated “wing” style is not only dramatic but sexy and cute at the same time.

UPDATE.  Woah, I’ve just rechecked and Sanne comes with the “Essential Fat Pack” which contains more than just 1 black, 1 brown, 1 blonde etc it contains a MASSIVE 28 shades!
