Treat time. (Cheap, cheaper & Mention of Freebies).UPDATED.

There is a 50% sale going on at one of my fav shops, Bumblebee. I love the Bumblebee range and yes I’ve actually spent Lindens in this shop. Love all the colour palettes but for me, the orange and greens are just perfect so this top at 98Ld was a no brainer.

The fact that it does come in my fav fit means it fit as snugly as I could wish. I will be treating myself to more before the sale is over on Monday I will have to be careful that I don’t buy items I already own as I do own a lot from this shop.

There are a lot of Lucky Boards in this shop with a fast turn over. They haven’t changed in a while and that’s fine by me as you can quickly score yourself some quality basics such as leggings and tops. I probably have won and kept all of them from my many visits.

The “Cheaper” is hair. “Kimmy” is a Wanderlust offer from Mina’s and for only 50Lds you get this every day/goto hair with a colour palette of your choice and in this case, you get 15 colours in each palette.

UPDATE: This is actually my second update because as I was inworld someone asked in the Bumblebee group why they didn’t get their free group credit and it turns out it’s because although the sign is still there it has been temporarily disabled. Never fear as they also said that it’s because there is free shop credit for us at an event, I’m going to assume it’s the latest round of the “Shop ‘n’ Hop” and I can’t wait to find it.

Bumblebee.

FaMESHed. All sizes are covered. (NEW Mina).

I’ve got this new Mina hair so early the event you get it from isn’t even open…….and now it’s open lol.

I couldn’t find a red bathing suit in my invent as I suspect this hair was named and styled after Pamela Anderson, oh! wait she’s just in the news for marrying again so really that should be Pamela Hayhurst now.

Then I remembered that I’d mentioned in my last post that I would tell you more about this hair so I’m recycling the photo as I think it just shows how much a hair can change the way you look.

This is the shade I most relate to and as always you get the super fat pack of shades, a shade slider, material/non-material option and sizes which includes the “Kupra” which turns out to be one of the more curvaceous shapes as this hair has definitely been designed to curve around your curves. So don’t worry if you’re not a “big lass” as there is a standard fit as well as a petite one.

As always, try the demo out at Mina’s main shop! No matter how good a hair/skin or make-up looks in any picture it’s only when you’re wearing it that you can tell if it works for you or not. I nearly always try the demo on before I get the full version but I am lucky as I have found Mina hairs to be just perfect for me.

Since this event, FaMESHed is opened just today as always link to Mina’s main shop and the Seraphim blog so you can see everything that’s on sale.

BTW, this is her newer design so the hair texturing is finer and the fatpack of shades is even fatter but there are similar styles to this so again as always have a look around her shop and try a few on before you make your mind up….it costs you nothing in the end lol.

Copy me. (10Ld & FLF Mina Hair).

UPDATE: Mina must have put her FLF offer out early for us so if you didn’t find time yesterday this hair/scarf will be out all week.

A couple of TP’s later and somehow I ended up on the Ello’s marketplace shop and this almost, but not quite, identical cropped sweater to the one worn in my last post. We all know that a lot of shops use the same templates and then add their own addons, colours & textures etc which makes it their own.

This sweater comes with a lovely 10 colour hud and plenty of fits. If you have another spare 10Lds and you’ve not picked up the “nina” denim shirt yet think about it as it’s a really good shirt and it too has a hud of denim shades.

As you can see from this lighter picture the jeans do have a nice shading/wrinkle touch to them so check out my last post for the details of these freebies.

Then I called into Mina’s as I’d hate to miss a sale or special offer and I can’t believe I almost missed this FLF offer! I swear I didn’t see it in the FLF list so I was kicking myself that I’m showing it to you at such a late time.

Willow is the name of this hair/scarf and you can choose either the essentials pack or the dip dyed pack each pack contains a big 30 shades which means you get every shade you could wish for and just for 50Lds. The scarf, which is attached, comes with a hud of 7 colours and textures.

Again BE QUICK as since it’s thur that means it will be gone by tomorrow.

Ello.

Sorry.

The sorry is for a couple of reasons, no freebie in this picture and you’re too late for the blouse.

Excuses over here are the goodies.

The blouse was yesterdays Advent Gift from !g0 which is just sooo freaking good but now it’s TOO LATE to get it however the dress is today’s Advent gift. I’ve noticed that although Christmassy in themed the designs are more subtle so all of the clothes so far are wearable any time you want to. The more summery Group Gift is still out and since there are still 19 days to Christmas you still have time for such a small investment of 50Lds score yourself some quality clothing.

Now for the Mina, cos you all know if I’m stood outside of Mina’s house it’s a NEW Mina hair.

This NEW Mina hair is from brand new event called “Santa Inc” and of course you know the Seraphim blog has done a fab post with all the pictures of whats for sale so link to their blog at the end.

I was so excited to check out this event I forgot to take the exact details of this new Mina hair but I do know I should have popped the “BB” size on, thats “Big Boobs” for those of you who don’t have them.

AS ALWAYS! Since the Santa inc event is packed try the demo out at Mina’s first.

PS. There seems to be “Mistery Boxes” at this event, I don’t know if they’re scattered around or on the stalls but this is what I spotted when I was LM grabbing at Mina’s.

I can’t work out if that lower figure is 300Ld or 800Lds but having seen whats on sale there is a good chance you will spend enough to score yourself some suprise treats.

Don’t read this post as it may end up costing you!

You have been warned lol.

I swear, and Faith can back me up, that apart from a dusting of snow I wasn’t going to winterise my home and now I’ve seen this addon snow pack from Hisa I’m being sorely tempted to go full snow!

This is my home or rather what it will look like if I cave in to temptation and buy this addon snow pack.

The house itself is 875Lds and the snow addon is 475Ld. WORTH IT! I may have a countless amount of homes/builds/caravans etc in my invent I’ve picked up along the way but for many years now I have only lived in 3 of them and this “The Forest Retreat” has been my home since we moved to our new sim.

I actually used our move as an excuse to buy this new home as I loved it the moment I saw it. You get amazing attention to detailling and excellent texturing for only 34 prims!

There are other snow addon packs on the platform I’m stood on so if you own another Hisa house check it out if you too want to go all wintery.

We all have the things we can’t help caving into temptation, in my case it’s homes and landscaping/decor but I think for most SLers its clothes and hair so I’m going to tempt you to spend some more money with this NEW Mina hat/hair.

I don’t take many back of the head shots as I’m rubbish at it but in this case I really just wanted to show off how how good it looks. We all remember the days when “Beanies” looked like teapot covers or helmets so to see how much they have come on since then is just so good.

Of course this isn’t the only “Beanie” hat Mina has so as always check out her mainshop to try all the demos but since this is the newest one it means you get that massive hud of hair colours. The “Style Hud” for the hat is a seperate purchase. When I first put this hair on the hat was a lovely soft grey, not the ugly “unrezzed” grey we all hate but almost a dove grey. If you want to splash a bit more cash then the style hud does offer you a big total of 15 colours/textures.

As alway try the demo out in the mainshop have a wander around to check out the other hat/beanie/hairs then when it’s gotten a bit quieter you can visit the Tannenbaum event which is where you buy this hat/hair from.

Plus I’ve added the link to the Serpahim blog as someone there has gone to a lot of effort and you can see everything for sale as this event.

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.

I have to show off! (Includes a Freebie & Update on Mina Hair).

The Halloween Shop n Hop Event has calmed down enough for me to start trawling the gift/goodies and discounts. For some reason out of all the gifts I’ve gotten so far I’ve only opened the “Insomnia Angel” gift and LOOK AT MY HAND!

OMG I love this severed hand and look closer you can see my bandaged stump! This screams to my inner freak! I absolutely LOVE this and I’m going to walk around like this for ages as it comes with that holding pose!

Going by memory only this comes with a hud so you can change the colour of the sleeve and bandage stump. If the stump isn’t to your taste then you don’t have to wear it.

I’m so sorry that I can’t tell you which section the “Insomnia Angel” stall is situated on. If I can I will try to locate the exact LM and do an update.

Now for an update on this hair as I didn’t realise something. This picture is just such a good one which allows you to see the subtle shading/texturing of this hair strands, it’s so silky smooth and now her hairs have a light satin sheed to them which catches the lights as you head moves which is just stunning. This new hair is called “Chiara” and is only for sale at the Fetish Fair.

As far as I can work out what I’m showing you in this picture is the basic hair which comes in a single style, and I think it’s the one I’m showing you but it does include the MASSIVE colour hud. To get the “Style Pack” which obviously allows you to change the way the hair hangs and also give you the beautiful colour streaks then its another 150Ld and I personally would pay for that as I just think the streaks are gorgeous.

The mask, which is the “kink” part is a totally seperate item. This has been designed to be worn on it’s own with any hair you have. At first I thought is was annoying to have to pay even more for the mask till I realised that a lot of people may not have wanted to buy the hair just to get the mask. I’m not sure how much it costs BUT as always, try the demo on. You can get the full demo from her shop and just see how much or how little you like.
