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.

Numpty.(Discounted Mina Hair).

I saw this hair on the New Boards in the Mina main shop but I was confused as I remember blogging this hair but I didn’t really give it too much thought until I got spendy at an event called Flourish and found this hair on one of the stalls there.

A fantastic offer because this hair, Karen, is only 99Ld but you’re still getting the full-colour pack of your choice and a style hud which allows you to change which side your hair hangs.

Hair like this is fab for taking pictures but if it’s a bit too windy for you then I know Mina has a few other hairs which have a much more subtle windswept look to them so as always LM to her main shop.

BTW The flourish event has now calmed down, phew, which is lucky as I did pick up a couple of 99Ld bargains.  It’s also a really nice sized event in that there is enough of everything, shoes, decor, hair but not so much you give in and TP home lol.

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.

A work of art.(New Mina@New Event? & Mention of Freebies)

This new Mina hair is at an event called “The Final Winter” which is most odd as Summer is here or at least that’s what people say but when I look out of my window it’s hard to tell it’s Summer.

I have obviously had fun with the editing but I know you know I always say try the demo first so you can try it and make sure it suits you.

I’ve just snagged the “The Final Winter” LM and on the notice board at the LM it says FREEBIES which are in the hidden dragon eggs so when I manage to get some more SLing time I’m dragon egg hunting.

I could be totes wrong but is this a “Game of Thrones” theme?  I don’t want to shock anyone but I’ve not only never watched an episode of Game of Thrones but DRUM ROLL…I’ve not even read a Harry Potter book and I am not ashamed to admit it.  I think the only reason it makes me think it is based on this show is that the length, braids etc and the way Mina Nakamura has styled this hair in her pictures suggests it to me but again I could be wrong….I often am.

PS.  Mina is usually so prompt in putting the demo hair in the “New” section and it is there but just not the image.  Go to the boards with all the new hairs and although the board is blank just click and buy the demo for 0Lds.  Chances are by the time you read this she will have put the picture up.

One for me.(New Mina@Salon52 & 10Ld Dress).

This dress is more “me” than the previous ones in the last post.

Again from the sYs Marketplace shop, if you’ve not read my last post then scroll back and check that one out for some exc offers.  There is a Dollarbie in this style but it’s black however there is a lot more colour options and each one only costs 10Lds and I’m wearing the nude shade.

I’m really pleased with it, very pretty, casual and summery.

This is the back of my new Mina, called Serene.

I know and you lot will know that Mina has a brilliant range of plaited hair, short, long, super long etc she has them so as always LM to the main shop to try them all on before you decide which one suits you best.

PS.  Do you remember the “The Walking Dead” dreadlock hair I mentioned a few posts ago?  I saw a male AV wearing that hair in the shop as I LM grabbed and wow he stood out, he looked so different from the crowd.  In a world of cool sexy people, he was cooler than most lol.

As for the hair I’m wearing it comes from the latest round of Salon 52.  I knew Salon 52 was open but like a fool, I couldn’t see it on the Mina sim and it’s because it’s not on the Mina sim lol. I think it’s probably an event which changes location each time so don’t use your old LM or a Mina LM use this new one.

Just a tease and reblog.(Freebies inc).

I just had to do it.

No that’s not Mina Nakamura in the background it’s her Bot…a Bot with attitude!

You may have noticed I’ve been wearing the same hair in a couple of recent posts and it’s because it’s a New Mina.  This one doesn’t come with anything other than the colour, no bells and buttons to change this hair so what you get is a classic easy to wear hair, everyday hair.  The way it frames your face and curls at the neck it’s just so right and you know what my RL hair is almost identical to this both in style and colour!!! My parting is slightly to the left rather than in the middle but it could be meee…ok ok it’s a stretch to think I look anything like my AV lol but at least we both have BANGING hair lol.

Anyhow this isn’t available yet because….drum roll….it’s going to be available at the next round of FaMESHed which starts on the 2nd.  This might be a real treat for us Cheap B*s as it is it’s 7th Anniversary and we all know that a lot of SL birthdays/anniversaries=FREEBIES!  I can’t promise you that there will be any freebies and TBH I am not even going to try to get into this event for a week or so after it’s started but you might just spot a gap for you to squeeze in and check it out.

To make up for teasing you with the hair I’m going to do a reblog for the top and jeans.  The top is one of the Blueberry GG’s, just like the hair a fab everyday wear item and even comes with the usual big hud of colours/textures (this is “Jolly Hollidays” gift)the same can be said about the jeans which come from Shiva.

When you walk into the Shiva Shop on the wall to the right of the desk is a picture of the jeans in all the colours but you will spot that these are marked as “promo” and cost only 1Ld.

“Only the sexy people”.

I’m such a lucky little AV, again and I know I say it BUT if I had to pay for my Mina hair I would pay for it which is the only reason I blog for Mina and no one else.  Actually, I sorta lie because I would avoid the Mina shop like the plague knowing I’d probably go too spendy.

I’ve been wearing a new Mina hair called “Tiffany” in a few of my recent pictures and here she is in her full glory.

I changed our sim to Optimums skin n prim setting to show you how she looks but of course yada, yada, yada, you know the drill lol.

Tiffany is a thick and glorious hair with lots of strands woven in to waves.

I usually stick to my brunettes, reds and blonde packs but this one out of the pastel shades, inc ombres, is just so bold and bright. I normally avoid the grey shades in any hair pack as grey to a lot of us just looks like something hasn’t rezzed properly but there is no way you would think this grey wasn’t properly rezzed.  I’d actually love to have my RL hair professionally dyed to look grey as I’ve seen people with this done and it looks amazing but that would cost me an arm and a leg but in SL it only cost 300Ld and my RL me can just keep on dreaming.

As what seems to be standard with a lot of the newer Mina hairs this one also comes with not just the massive 30 colour options in each pack but also the “style hud” which allows you to change the way your hair hangs.  I never really mention it but if you can’t make your mind up then you could always choose the Essentials pack and I think that’s 350Ld but you get all the main colours from each option.

I always think that when a creator in SL or RL has the “competition” literally on their doorstep it’s because they have the confidence that their products will still stand out and that’s the case here.  This new Mina can only be purchased from a brand new event called “Salon 52” and it’s in a new building right next to Mina’s main shop. I finally managed to squeeze into this packed event but all I could do is cam and I’ve spotted a few things I am looking forward to trying on.

PS. The “Beautiful People” were man and woman who were on voice and they had the sexiest mofo accents ever! Sadly I have a thick Geordie accent and a tendency to sound whiney..so sexy!
