New & Old.(Freebies).

This bright yellow skirt and top are from AsHmOot and I can’t remember blogging them so new to me.

It has a really good knitted texture. There are a few other gifts and although a couple of them are appliers I did try the copper bikini one on and I was more impressed than I thought I would be.

The shoes are a reblog and they’re also “keepers” so I already had them in my invent.

In fact I think I’ve kept every G&D shoe gift I’ve gotten from this shop.  These have been out for a while, which is a good thing, but don’t delay as you never know a new one could be out soon.  PS.  They come with a big hud so plenty of colours to match all your outfits.

BTW.  The hair I’m wearing in this picture is Mina’s newest Group Gift.  It was just by chance I was wearing “Harper” that I remembered it was the GG so I TP’d over to check it out and yes for only 200Lds this super long side plaited hair can be yours.  You do only get the blonde palette but you get a lot of shades in that pack.  Although this is a super bargain just for this one hair alone the old Gifts are still out plus I do believe wearing the Mina VIP tag gets you a 10% discount on each purchase. As always LM and the Demo is out for you to try this before you make your mind up.

PS. DON’T Panic if you’re a Mina lover as all that has changed is she has not only updated her new designs with new colours/hud etc she’s updated her shop so it’s a whole new layout.

My Two Fav words, Free & Cheap.

I’m sure the last time I looked at the “The stay at home club” blog page there wasn’t anywhere near as many gifts as there are now and I scrolled down to the first thing that caught my attention which is this dress.

The texturing to me has a feel of cheesecloth and since it’s a “Stay at home” gift it was obviously free but I wanted this next outfit so I paid the 30Lds to join the group so I could show it to you.

It’s a one-piece of a very prim and proper look.  It has the same sort of “handmade” look that reminds me of S@bbia and I love its uniqueness.  There are other group gifts which I do actually remember showing you them but it was a long time ago.  They do have that “thick shoulder” look to them BUT they get away with it because they too have a certain “handmade” feel to them.

Special mention to “Mabel” which is the hair I’m wearing.  If you read my last post and popped over to Mina’s then you may have seen next to the new stuff is this hair on offer for only 50Lds as it’s Mina’s “Wanderlust Weekend” offer. Don’t worry you can still try the demo on to check it out for yourself but since it’s a limited offer I suspect that maybe it will be gone by the time the weekend is over(?).

I’m also going to give you the link to the “Stay at home” blog as even though you may have looked at it previously like me I suspect you will see that the list of gifts has grown with the generosity of the creators/sellers etc.

I knew it! (Free Mina Gift).

I spotted Mina Nakamura inworld last week as I always pop into the main shop to see whatssupppp but I couldn’t see anything new to the shop, gifts, event etc so I was surprised today to see a Hunt going on and this hat is the prize! I am not sure if Mina has ever had a hunt gift out for us and if she has then it was a long time ago.

I know this hat very well because it’s from a more recent hat/hair combo and in my opinion with the colour options you get in the full-priced hair/hat pack it is very similar to a horse riders hat with a hint of cloth cap to it.

This free hat doesn’t come with hair and you do only get this one shade but you do get a male and female version plus even though it is a snug enough fit for me there is just about enough of a gap if you want to try to use a hair/hair addon you may own.  As it happens since I think my Lelutka has the most adorable ears I’m happy to be showing them off.  For only 50Lds you could buy the colour pack which are on the stand or check out the

This is a gift for the “Eggapalooza” hunt, which is one I will be checking out once I log back in.  TBH the egg you’re looking for it RIGHT NEXT to the display stand.  Normally I wouldn’t be spilling the beans about where you can find it as the shop owners do want you to look around but it’s right there lol, if you miss it then you’re a worse hunter than I am and I’m a lousy hunter.

PS. Ignore the skirt as I can’t remember where it came from, the top is from the Tachinni hunt, scroll past a couple of posts to find details about this and that.

UPDATE:  I’ve check out the Eggapalooza blog and OHMAI! It turns out there is a hud you can use plus every shop and not just Mina’s has a freebie but also a sale item.

Are you up for it? (A boredom breaking challenge & Freebie).

There are 3 shops I pop into on an almost daily basis, S@bbia, !g0 and of course Mina’s and it was Mina’s which gave me an idea.

In the little entrance area before you get to the main body of the shop is a FREEBIE of the super and very new Carion Sunhat/hair fatpack BUT only for AV’s of 30 and under days.

So just for shitz and giggles, and to relieve boredom, why not create a whole new you?  I think a lot of people do have more than 1 AV, commonly known as an “Alt”.  It’s not as though you lose your old AV because you simply create a whole new account with its own password and you can log in to whichever account you want to that day.

Now obviously dressing up a whole new AV can be costly but the Mina offer of the Carion Sunhat reminded me that Linden Labs is expecting an influx of noobs and people returning to SL, because if you can’t RL you may as well SL. I’ve also noticed a lot of shops being more generous with gifts at this rough period so why not log out create a new account and log back in and challenge yourself to dress from head to toe in nothing but freebies!

If you scroll back just on our blog with the recent info on the free mesh body, hair, clothing you will be in for a great start.  At a push if you want to join a group for the freebie such as the Blueberry group offer then you simply send yourself the few Lindens you will need from one account to another.  I always intended to try it myself but I never have the time.

I will put the Link to the Mina shop so if you do decide to give it a try then her offer is just a great start.  I will also put the link for the t-shirt I’m wearing which is the new American Bazaar Gift, you get a choice of messages with the same theme.

Guess who’s back…MINA of course. (New Group Gift).

Mina (Nakamura) the Boss Lady of Mina’s hairs decided to take a break over Christmas and the New Year so she could come back to SL refreshed and I’m going to assume with a shed load of fresh new designs.  I must admit I’d was having withdrawal symptoms and had been checking her shop on an almost daily basis for the past week to see if there was something new so to get a notice this morning about a NEW Group Gift made me stay inworld just a bit longer when I should have logged out and logged into RL.

When I first got it I thought “wait a mo “Harper” isn’t that an old hair?” and it is but this is the updated version.  I’ve not tried on the old Harper as a comparison, I’ve just binned it now that I have this newer one, out with the old and in with the new as I say.  I suspect that since there was nothing wrong with the old Harper as Mina’s hairs do seem to last the test of time what is updated is the colour pack.

For the initial 200Lds it costs to join the Mina VIP Group you get this hair, only in the blonde shades but the blondes go from in my opinion light brown to creamy light brown…doesn’t matter as you can try the demo before you join the group.

If this hair tempts you but you want more for your Lindens then check out the area to the right of the desk, at the base of the stairs and there you will find a wall of older and yet still wearable Group Gifts.  There is hair for both men and women BUT take them all.  Although Mina does have male hair upstairs a lot of her female hair is as good on him and her. So for your initial 200Lds, you can score a lot of very wearable long-lasting hair.

Can I also remind you that there are also Gacha’s in the Mina shop.  I was wandering SL yesterday and I was in a clothes shop which actually had 2 Mina Gacha’s in the shop.  This was the first time I’ve seen Mina’s Gacha’s elsewhere so it was a reminder to me to remind you to check those out.  None of them is over 100Lds, in fact, I think they average 75Lds for some great hair, some of my fav hairs come from Gacha wins and in fact Kismet strikes because I went and checked and “Inkie” the hair I wore in my last post is a Gacha win, only 75Lds etc…demos are out for Gacha wins just in case you want to make double sure it will suit you.

PS, I think it’s a 10% discount you get if you buy any hair from Mina if you’re wearing your Group Tag and of course there are 2 Lucky Chairs as well.

Day 22 !g0 Advent Gift (and mention of freebies).

Another pom pom sweater/jumper from !g0 and I ain’t complaining.

I have a picture where I’m not looking so dopey but dopey is how I feel.

I finally finished the Winter Hop & Shop event and OMAHI! The gifts, the generosity has been outstanding not only for the freebies but again remember every stall/shop at this event has a big discount going on and I’ve indulged not only in the dress I showed you but also some new hairs which brings me to Mina’s.

I didn’t realise that she too has a stall at this event and that means a FREE hair, nope not the one I’m wearing in this picture because oops I binned it lol.  Because of the recent generosity of gifts I’ve been trashing everything as fast as I’ve been unpacking it and then trashing the trash and somehow I ended up binning the FREE Mina!  I’m done with this event, I finally managed to work my way through the last shopping mall and I just don’t want to return and pick up a second copy so I will leave it up to you to pick it up.  ]

This post is more of a reminder that not only are there all of those gifts BUT each stall/shop has big and small discounts going on and you saw the dress I treated myself to and soon you will see the new hair I bought for myself BUT one of my all-time Fav Mina’s hair, Leslie, is discounted to 150Ld.  Leslie is the stunning, classy, updo covered in pearls! A hud is included for you to change it around.  So if you’ve not been or you missed it then check out the Mina shop at this event.  Sorry I can’t give you the direct LM but I’m 99% sure it was in the last 2 malls I visited so I’ve put the link to each of them.

My work is done.(Dollarbie/Cheapie/New Mina).

I’ve done as much RL work as I can do so far and before I logged inworld I logged into the Marketplace and found an old SL friend.

But first the NEW Mina.

I did struggle a bit with this hair because if you look closely and you will see a tiara of Christmas light and yes they do flicker and flash and that was the problem for me.  They do cause some “light pollution” which can be great for a party, walking around etc but totally lousy for trying to take a close up picture without looking like I’ve snorted into a tub of white face powder.  Finally, I clicked just at the right time and so Voila here is Enora. The other main thing is that this hair is a GACHA! and you do have to squeeze your butt into the latest round of the Arcade.  If you’re worried about the flashing of this tiara then one of the other prizes is a classic style tiara.

BTW The one thing I noticed with Enora is she goes so well with all of my tiaras/crowns and a lot of the headdresses/accessories I own and since the tiaras, you get with her are separates you can use this hair to showcase your fav bling.

I don’t know how much this Gacha costs as I did get into the Arcade yesterday but it was too much but I think today it has calmed down and I suspect that as standard under the Christmas tree there will be a shed load of gifties for us.  I’ll certainly be checking it out later.

Then I was totally shocked by how GOOD this Dollarbie dress is!  Nope, I did not expect that at all. This is a very bright picture which has lessened the folds and stuff but I was most pleased and the textures in the hud are all very Christmassy and wearable.

Now for an old friend.

I used to blog for Mag<3.B not much but occasionally she would send me something and her Group Gifts were cheap enough that I’d just pick stuff up when I’d pop in.  Sadly the inworld shop shut down for a long time ago and I never thought about the Marketplace and it turns out her old stuff is still for sale there.  So I have an excuse to show you one of the old and yet fav pairs of shoes I used to wear a heck of a lot.

You can wear them with or without the socks but TBH I’m not even sure if these are mesh feet fits, I’ve just looked and no not for mesh feet which is probably why I wore them so much as I don’t think I bought mesh feet for a long time.  They’re only 5Lds.  Some super bargains and I can totally recommend the wearable knitted bags…so freaking cute.

Mag<3.B is a bit like S@bbia, homespun clothes but with a touch of Kawaii.  OH and don’t bother checking out the link to the inworld shop as it’s a LIE!
