Credit Rich & Cash Poor & NEW Mina hair@FaMESHed.(300Ld Credit for 30Ld & Free Credit Reminder).

Credit first. Mossu has a great offer out and for the 30Ld Joining fee just click and grab that generous 300Ld shop credit offer. If I remember correctly it’s only valid till the 13th so you should spend it by then. Which I suspect is easy to do AND I spotted that there is a range of mens wear as well.

TBH this place was packed so it took a while for things to rezz for me and added to that the credit giver, big poster on the wall, is limited to one person at a time so I had to wait for just the right time to click it to get the credit so you might want to keep on checking for when it’s a bit quieter.

Since I couldn’t get back to the Mossu shop to buy something to show you I threw on this shirt from Bumblebee that I’d bought previously with my free credit. I’ve literally just mentioned this shop is a post so it was just good timing I could show you something else from Bumblebee.

All of those bargains will free up you Lindens for this New Mina hair.

She’s had a few out recently and so I don’t know if I should labour the point about how her new designs come with that big hud of unique colours, the sheerness of the texturing, the hint of a shine to the hair etc etc. So this one has all of that plus this adorable tucked over the ears look! My Lelutka head has the most adorable ears, they’re so cute so for me it’s lovely to have a hair which shows them off.

The way the hair is styled in this picture is how it comes. It is 400Lds but this is starting to become the normal price of quality hair. Yes there are still a lot of hair out there for a cheaper price and some of it is great but the reality, and I’ve always said this, is when it comes to skin and hair you cannot scrimp!

Most of Mina’s hair ages really well and of course her older hairs are lower in price. Most of my “goto” hairs are 3-5 years old and hold up well…however with her new finer texturing and colour packs it is time to look at the really older stock and assess it’s wearability.

The “Style Hud” is a seperate purchase which is only 150Lds. The way it is in the picture is how it come. I’ve put the link to the Seraphim blog so you can scroll down the pictures and see the Mina hair and style hud and everything else which is on sale at the FaMESHed Event.

As always I’ve also put the link to Mina’s mainshop so you can try the demo out firts.

BTW, I spotted 2 of my fav “goto”hairs are in the Lucky Chairs. Myrtle and Riva are just so wearable. Only for Group Members, 200Lds, but if you’ve not seen them you might want to loiter for a while.

Update.(New Mina Group Gift & Freebie).

The first thing I did when I logged inworld was to swop out the S@bbia skirt for my fav jeans to see if the really good top I’ve just blogged can be worn with them and it’s a really lovely fit. Then I went over to Mina’s as I knew there is a New Group Gift out for us.

“Annie” is one of her newer/older hairs. You do get only the “essentials” colour pack which is a decent size and although I’ve forgotten to count how many I would estimate maybe 18ish?…anyhow you get all the shades you really need from black, brown, blondes and whites. You do also get the style hud which allows you to change the fringe and the bun at the back.

As always though there is a demo even for the group gift so you can check out how it looks on you.

The Mina group does cost, I think, 200Lds to join. It may have gone up by now and even if it has then this hair on it’s own it worth every linden and of course you have a wall of older gifts. If you’re after some bloodied hair for spookiness then there are some on the group gift wall as well.

You also get a 10% off when/if you treat yourself to a new hair. Just make sure to wear your group tag.

It’s all new(maybe). (Freebie(s)& NEW Mina Hair).

I went over to Mangula’s as I suspect there is a new Freebie out for us and the place was EMPTY!  I’ve never ever been there when it wasn’t heaving with people grabbing the subscribers gifts so it gave me a chance to look at the boards properly.

Nothing struck me as being new so I just grabbed this simple jeans and jumper set. You can’t see them but I am also wearing the excellent ankle boots so a whole look for zero Lindens.

This top isn’t ringing any bells.  You get the top alone, the top with panties attached and a denim skirt.  The reason I’m not wearing the skirt is that I was just curious to see if the bodysuit version would fit over the jeans from the first picture…and it does….small things for small minds lol.  Most of you will have visited this shop on a reg basis and will have for sure picked up some of the newer, and previously blogged, fatpacks.  These are totally shop quality and chances are everyone has them by now.

NOW for the Mina!  She’s not only updated her shades/hud and designs she’s updated her shop.  I did have a moment of panic thinking she’d updated her lovely house on the hill which I love to use as a backdrop but my second “home sweet home” is still there.  The lighting on Mina’s sim is perfect for showing all AV’s off to their best and it boggles me when I go shopping that some shops don’t make sure their windlight settings are set to be the most flattering for their clothes/hair and shop?

This hair is called “Gwen” and she’s the newest offering available @FaMESHed which hasn’t started as yet but I’m sure today is the day it opens it’s doors.

Gwen comes with a style hud which gives you a total of 6 ways to wear this hair but obviously, 3 of those ways are just mirror versions, so you can have the hair scooped back over your left ear, right ear, both ears, in front and fringe or fringeless. This fringe is the perfect “wispiness”, I should have popped a colour base on my hair so that little dot didn’t show but I didn’t think about it and since we all have hair base colours in our mesh head huds it’s something to remember next time.

Something was bothering me! (Freebie).

First, the Freebie which will have been posted in every freebie group as it’s a new Coco Design gift.

Lovely simple floral jacket. The nice touch about this jacket is that it has a slight flare to the bottom which helps it to fit over any/most jeans or skirts you own.

Goes without saying plenty of old, unique and quality gifts out in the shop.

Back to Mina’s.  I know I did a post about this yesterday, only to be informed by Faith that the Uber event has been opened for a few days lol.  The thing was something was nagging at me, so I popped the hair back on to try to work it out and as soon as I opened the hud it slapped me in the face like the smell of week-old dead fish, NEW colours.  As I mentioned to my seasoned eye there are more strands of colour to the hairs which you can see more clearly in this second picture but the colour packs have been tweaked to add more undertones/shades options.

This is my happy face.(NEW MINA & Mention of Bloodyness).

This is why I don’t smile in my pictures but this is how a new Mina hair makes me feel.

Ignore the fangs, they came with my updated Lelutka head and I forgot I was wearing them lol.

I’ve mentioned a “collard” hair before which has a touch of kink to it but this hair is very vanilla and perfectly seasonal.

“Willow” doesn’t come with a “style” hud because the hair tucked under the scarf is the style lol.  You do get as standard a massive colour pack for the hair and for the scarf a 7 texture hud with a colour slider.  I don’t usually bother with the colour slider if it’s included but for some to be able to change the tone of the texture is a bonus. If you do want to play with the slider then make sure to make a copy of the original before you start fiddling.

Only found at Uber and it’s a standard price of 300-375 and if you do have a fatpack option which is a great deal.

As for the “Bloodyness”, I’m trying to find it.  Tiffany is one of Mina’s recent hairs and she’s had a bloodied version out as a “Wanderlust” offer and now it’s been set out in the shop for sale except but so far I’ve not found it.  I’m going to have another look for it as obv a bloody hair is something that people want/need for their SL Halloween.

I found Tiffany.

This brown shade is pretty close to my RL colour and seeing the bloody and crusty ends is making me want to itch and go for a shower!

It goes without saying that the lighter the hair the more obvious the blood staining is.  This is a pack of I believe five shades and is priced at 250Lds.

This bloody version of Tiffany is to be found on the wall to your left as you enter the Mina Mainshop and she’s just tacked this bloodied version to the normal shades

BUT.  Think about checking out the Group Gifts as there are two bloodied hairs there so for 200Lds, I don’t think the Group Gift price has gone up, you can score 2 bloody hairs and more as of course there are plenty of other hairs as well, of course, a chance to win a hair on one of the two Lucky Chairs.

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.

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.
