Nooooooooo! She’s done it again.

I never got around to doing a post about the Mina hair I’ve been wearing over the past week but damn as soon as I saw this I ripped off that wig and slapped this beauty on.

Mina has done it again and added that something extra which to me makes her hair something extra and in this case its hair that goes from wet to dry to wet to dry to wet etc and although you can’t see it in this picture when wet you even get drops of water running down the strands.

The wet look lasts for 135 seconds.

Or if you wanted it dried super quick just whip out the hairdryer thats included and 5 seconds late super dry and stylish hair.

I don’t really know what else to say, not that ever stops me, but yet again Mina has just added something NEW to SL hair. Every time she brings out a new hair there just seems to be something extra, whether that’s a bigger colour hud or the options in the “options tab” which allows you to change the way you style it, material and non material versions so people who want to reduce any lag issues their computer may have can still wear a great hair but without any impact on how their computer runs and on and on and now this wet to dry or dry to wet just adds another dimension.

Here is the note that comes with the hair with instructions on how to get the best out of it but really it’s easy to understand.

“The hair turns wet on contact with default SL water,
It dries off in the sun, 135 seconds to fully dry. Or use the included Blow Dryer; the hair dries within 5 seconds.

Quick command in local chat to get wet hair: /1337 get wet
Quick command in local chat to get dry hair: /1337 get dry

The hair is Fitted Mesh and works with your sliders but I also included two versions, one for the bigger breasts bodies like the SLink Hourglass and Belleza’s Freya and one for Maitreya etc.”

So as you can see you don’t even need to dunk your hair in SL water, just type the short command in chat and you can have that wet look anywhere anytime.

Soooo where do you get it from?  You can get this from FaMESHed which has started NOW and the price for this hair is 325Lds for each shade pack, 15 shades in total, 300Lds for the 13 Shade pack or you could go wild and buy the Fat Pack but I can’t remember the price of that one.

Mina has collabbed(sic) with a shop called Salt & Pepper and what a team up it’s turned out to be.  The Salt & Pepper Gacha’s theme is “Wet T-Shirt Contest” and the prizes range from the catwalk to sashes but it’s the clothing which I bet most people will be wanting to get their mitts on as it too has the “wet to dry to wet” feature and   I’ve put the link to the Seraphim Arcade picture so you can check out the total wet sexiness that’s going on……and of course all the other offerings at this event.

Both of these events start NOW which means don’t even bother!!! Sorry but let’s be honest it’s gonna be PACKED and LAG HELL so you know what I’m gonna say…LM below for Mina’s main shop because you can try the demo not just for “Sandra” but the other new hairs which I just haven’t gotten around to doing.  You can, of course, type the instructions in chat if you so which but Mina does have a lovely sim and in front of the shop is a beach so go for a swim and try it out that way as well.

I’ve not put the LM to the 2 events because it’s much easier and nicer to see whats for sale before you go and if you check out the Links you can see everything.

PS.  Faith aren’t you grateful I resisted the temptation to name this post “Wet Dreams”?

Whatta Find!(Freebie).

Excellent find by Faith, the top she found from B.D.R (Beautiful Dirty Rich) shop.  It looks so good I just knew that as soon as I logged in I had to get it but since I was butt naked I decided to check to see if there is a MP shop and if it’s there and YASSSS it’s also in their MP shop so if you can’t log into SL today you can still grab it from the MP shop.

OK, I’ve got another “keeper” freebie for you but I also wanted an excuse to show you a bit more of the new Yelena hair and I can’t actually believe I did a whole post about this blinking hair yesterday and forgot to put the name into it!  Anyhow, in 2 of the pictures I’m wearing the fringeless version and in the picture below it’s the one with the strands and each hair is either a shade of Auburn from the brown pack or a shocking red from the reds.

The pants are the freebies from a shop called Atik and excellent “keepers”.

They come in so many sizes they will fit anyone, great texturing, and on and on and just so wearable!  Damn what a team we make LOL Faiths scored so well with the top and these pants are my find of the week.

Anyhow, I think it’s Mothers Day in America?  We have ours earlier in the year so for us, but if it is I hope you have something lovely planned and let your Mum know how much you love her and if you’re a Mum I hope you have a wonderful day even if the gesture off your little one is small if it comes from the heart then it’s as big as the Hope Diamond.

PS I should have worn another shade as the one I chose almost makes me look nude so check Faiths post out for the details and for the inworld LM to the shop).

Time to say goodbye.(Dollarbies & New Mina).

A whole bloddy sim and still not enough prims!  Actually, it’s the fault of all the amazing landscaping creators there are in SL because most of the prims seem to go on plants and trees and grass etc and even though they’re so low primmed it can sharp add up but dammit our sim is looking glorious but now we want a pool on our sim and so I’ve decided to sacrifice my studio.

Truth be said I rarely used it in any case so it’s not much of a loss and I have a much lower prim idea as a replacement.

I’m wiping away my tears with a couple of Dollarbies, from my fav shop Loordes of London.  In the area with lots of offers, “Steals and deals”&  “36Ld Saturday” etc are lots of hunt items ie an arrow, flowers, and each one cost a single Ld and contain a mix of things.  In this case, I bought the Cute and Curvy Hunt item which gave me the dress and the April Showers Hunt item which gave me these shoes.

Obviously, there is more than these but if you just want these 2 prizes then click on the hunt item and it should tell you what hunt it was for and TBH at 1Ld for each prize just buy them all.

The dress comes in standard mesh fits and alphas but easy to wear with a mesh body and the shoes in the 3 main mesh feet fits.

Now for the barnet.

Check out the back, all those random strands is what makes this stand out, can you see the ones which are curling back up? Anyhow I won’t rabbit on because I’m a total Mina bore but scroll past Faiths recent posts and you will see more pictures of this hair plus info on the New Mina Group Gift.

This hair, Celeste, is very similar to one I already have called June, but they are different you just need to try on all the different hairs to make sure you get the one that makes you go “Ooh that’s the one” before you make your choice.  Celeste has that big hair swept back look of the 70ties to me and of course the fabulous natural way the hair strands have been formed it looks as good from the back as for the front.  This new hair is next to the reception desk and cost 300LDs but woah you now get 15 shades in each colour palette.  You can almost age Mina hair by the size of the colour palette, her oldest ones have 5, newer ones 10 and the newest 15 and the shades in each palette are really different.  Anyhow simply click on the picture and try the demo and then simply click on the colour palette of your choice and pay.

You will notice above the picture is a sign for “FaMESHed Go” which is a new way of bleeding us dry with temptation.  You simply Add it, it will then ask you for permission to TP you just say yes and then you can see the list of shops that have something brand new out and you click on the shop name and if you’re allowed the TP then it will just do that

I was wrong and right at the same time, New Mina Group Gift Hair.

This has turned into a long post but stick with it as there is more info about bargains etc.

The hair I was wearing in my last post is called Irma and when I saw the new GG from Mina Nakamura I would have sworn I was actually wearing the new GG but I was wrong.

This is Carmen the new GG.

Scroll back to my last post and apart from the excellent Dollarbies I’m showing you in that post you will be able to see the comparison between that hair, Irma, and this new one called Carmen which is the newest addition to the Group Gifts.

Mina not only comes up with fresh new designs she often takes what works brill in one hair and incorporates it into another hair to create a new look and that’s why this messy piled up bun with all those straggly bits looked familiar to me but Carmen has a bigger messier bun and even more of those face-framing stragglies.  This is also why I always put the link to Mina’s main shop so you can see if there are other hairs with a similar styling that you actually prefer and you can try them on before you make your mind up as to which one you prefer.  I mean how many times have we bought something and then found something we would have much preferred and kicked ourselves?

Carmen comes free but only for those who are already in the Mina VIP Group and that only cost 200Lds to join.  Although you only get this one shade for Carmen you do get the option of wearing it with or without the stragglies and this shade will never be used in another Carmen or other hair pack, I’m not really sure but it’s a one-off colour.

The other GG’s are a mix of one-off colours ie the Arwen bloodied version or actually full shade packs but you can see and try the demos out for yourself before you decided if it’s worth joining.

There is also a men’s selection in the group gift room and everyone should grab both the male and female hairs as some of them make fine unisex hairs.

I’m in a lot of paid for groups as some of them can be pretty generous but we also know of some where you pay a hefty joining fee and never seem to get anything back well in this case even if you just join the Mina VIP group and snag all of the GG’s inc the men as well you get so much back for your 200Ld investment but if you decide to stay then you also get 10% off each future purchase.

Trust me I would join the Mina VIP group if I had to and as soon as a notice of a new hair comes out I’d be TPing over.

PS.  For those of you on a budget the Gacha’s have some really lovely shop quality hair and you get the full hair colour pack plus some great hat/hair combos so if you’re willing to risk the shade then this is a great way of getting a bargain hair for 100Lds and under and you can even try a demo on before you make your mind up.

SORRY more spam but I think you will find it helpful.  The new GG is on the wall at the LM but the rest of them are in an area to the right of the new stuff wall, at the bottom of the stairs.  You will also notice that the Gacha machines have gone but they haven’t Mina has just replaced them with Gacha boards.  So the super Gacha bargains are still to be had.  Lastly but not least Mina had a big shake up and a lot if not all of her “old hair” is now on the Marketplace.  This isn’t “old” hair as such what it is is these are the hairs that have the 5 shades in the pack as standard but quite a while ago now Mina changed it so that it’s now 10 shades in a pack!  So instead of faffing with the other hairs and inc the colours she’s just slashed the prices to I believe about 125Lds so amazing hair at amazing prices as long as you shop on the MP!

I swear to God my next post will be short!

More than you can see!(Free ‘n’ non free).

Trust me I know I’m lucky to get my Mina hair for free.

But I don’t actually go and get all of the new releases and because I have so much leeway I can pick and choose and I chose this hair LOL.

Let me just say the hair is not purple it just looks like it because I screwed up with the lights in this picture, lol! It’s one of the classic brown shades but you can have purple if you want or pink or orange or blue n pink etc all depends on which colour pack you buy lol.  Anyhow, as soon as I saw this one with that high plait it was “oooo” and sadly I do actually say that out loud in RL when I put on a super pair of shoes, dress or in this case hair.

I know very little about this hair but since you must try the demo on for yourself before you decide if it suits you I will as always give you the LM to her, Mina Nakamura’s main shop and you can try it out before you TP to the event that is where you can buy the hair from  AND don’t forget there are 2 FREE Mina hairs so scroll back a couple of posts to my “Kawaii Freeness” one to get the details for those.

PS.  This hair comes with an “option” which is with or without the fringe (or bangs) but I won’t lie and my AV does not suit a fringeless look but it’s nice to have that option because sometimes when wearing a headpiece, tiara, flowers etc the non fringe option can be a bonus for me.

Now for FREEEEEBIES and these too made me go “oooo” because they’re damned fine ones at that.  They come in so many fits as well as a 5 textured hud.  Love these floral ones and although you can’t really see the shade in the top picture is dark brown.

Don’t STOP reading as there is much more freeness than what I am showing you.  These boots and 2 other items, both come with massive colour huds, are new GG’s at Hilly Haalans but if you turn around there is a little stand-alone building which is stuffed with the old GG’s, the top/dress I’m wearing is one of the old ones.  If it wasn’t for the fact I have a groaning invent I would have clicked and grabbed so much more so if you’ve not visited Hilly’s before then a great way to stock up and if you have then a great way to get new Gifts.

PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies.

This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one.

I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.

This new hair is only out at Kustom 9 so don’t even bother trying to get in there esp as it’s only just opened so it’s gonna be heaving!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog because you can see whats up for sale at this event and as always you can use the Mina Mainshop to go check the demo out in lag-free heaven.

PS.  I don’t bang on about it enough but the Group Membership for Mina’s in only 200Lds and she’s recently added a new hair to the room that has all of the shop quality hairs in it.

The dress is the dollarbie and there is a reason the hem is slightly cropped in the picture and I bet you can guess why?  Yup no SLink fit but you do get a fit for SLink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya & Isis and although I could find a nice fit it wasn’t a perfect fit.  Again you may have the mesh bod that does fit or of course you don’t even use one and have an alpha in your invent which will work.  The sleeves are attached as well which is a lovely touch but that might make a struggle if you do go for your own Alpha.

You might want to rush as obviously this is a lovely Valentines pressie off Spirit but it is only on the MP(Marketplace) and it might be pulled soon as Valentines is well and truly over.

You can skip all of this part as it’s just boring waffling…I’m good at that.

I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day and remember even if you’re on your own there is no reason why you shouldn’t make sure you have a treat to spoil yourself or in my case our cat because we remembered it was his RL BD on Valentines lol. So me and my OH probably spent more on him than each other plus we spring cleaned the house so let’s face it Valentines for a lot of people is overrated lol.

I’ve also been MIA because it was also my RL BD(say that so it rhymes) and I’ve had a lovely time which has only been slightly marred by Windows desperately trying to force me to do a window 10 update even changing my computers setting to allow it!  I won and Windows lost, this round at least lol but if you don’t want the windows update then check they haven’t changed your settings.

I’m also trying to sort out sim out, I should have maybe started next week rather than this as we stripped it all back and I started to rezz away but then had to stop as RL was fun, fun and more fun but now I need to get sorted and get all those bald sim patches filled, get my new studio sorted and make my mind up what house I’m finally going to live in for the next several months which I have to say is much more fun in SL than RL lol.

A Quickie & only a mention of freebies.

NO FREEBIES in this picture, sorry.

I got a New Mina, Woo Hoo.  I swear the day I stop blogging Mina’s hairs is the day when I put one on I don’t go “Ooo” and I “Ooo’d” when I put Alexis (I think that’s how the name is spelled because I got completely sidetracked when over at Mina’s sim).

I got sidetracked because when I went inside the main shop to get the LM I finally found the Group Gifts that Mina has out for us.  There is actually an upstairs at Mina’s and although there is a discount section up there it’s not a place to dump old stuff because the stuff upstairs is as good as the stuff downstairs is and the men’s hair is up there as well but I’m a lazy toad and I often just stand n cam but this time I decided to trot upstairs using the stairs and there they are!

A total of 9 hairs and trust me it doesn’t matter what sex your AV is a lot of Mina’s hairs look amazing on both male and female AVs so men grab the women’s hair and ladies grab the men’s hair….did that come out a bit rude sounding lol.  I wondered where these group gifts were hidden but because like most people I’d just assumed they were behind or on the reception desk and they’re not.  No demos but these are total shop quality and 5 of them are my “go to” hairs and that doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with the other ones at all.

The group isn’t free and last time I checked it was 250Lds to join and I don’t think that’s changed.  You not only get 8 totally wearable and top quality Mina hairs you also get a discount on future purchases, 10% I believe.  TBH I often join paid for groups to grab the gift because if you look at what you’re getting then you still score yourself an amazing bargain.

So TP over to Mina’s to try the demo of Alexia first before you go to the FaMESHed event then just go to the right of the board with all the New hairs which are only at events at the moment and there is where you will find the hair…damnit stop rhyming!
