As promised I logged in and rezzed a copy of the gift basket from my previous post and here it is in all it’s 7 prim glory.
Although the prims are not bad at all it really makes for a much nicer wearable.
Now for the Mina hair.
“Dakota” is the name and with the bead/shell headband/accessories it does have a summer/hippy chic feel to it. There are in fact 2 Dakota’s so if you love the hair but aren’t keen on the accessories then there is a seperate “Dakota” which doesn’t come with the accessories and is a seperate purchase.
Normally I give you the link to Mina’s mainshop but I’m so quick off the mark Mina hasn’t even put the demo out and she’s usually very prompt about those things. This is for sale at the Uber event and you will be able to try the demo out there for sure and of course I’m pretty sure there will be a demo in her mainshop soon as I suspect Uber which is opened today will be packed!
PS. Did you notice that I am wearing the white dress from the hunt in my last post, so pleased I went to get it.
UPDATE: I think I missed it as the demo’s of Dakota are actually out for everyone to try, they’re right at the LM.
Pepper is a smooth fine textured hair, with a light sheen to it and as usual with a Mina hair a vast colour palette.
In this case the style hud is included and allows you to wear the hair with or without the fringe, it also gives you the “average, petite and Kupra” sizing so that means the hair hanging down lies on top of your boobies/clothing just right. Even more is that each size comes in 1 & 2 head sizes so you can with a couple of clicks get the best fit for you. It’s nice that it’s all in a hud rather than having a folder full of the different options.
It’s only for sale @Uber so I will give you the link to both Mina’s mainshop so you can try the demo out and also to Uber.
FREE SHOP CREDIT are 3 words to cheer up anyone lol.
The notice has just gone out from a shop called Trend that in celebration of a new sim?/shop? the group is free to join and for group members there is a generous 500Lds shop credit out for us.
I would like to show you the board you slap or even something I’ve bought using the shop credit but the place is heaving so I was most suprised when the big board in the shop entrance did rezz for me, so I quickly joined and clicked for the credit then TP’d out as it wasn’t fair to add to the lag by trying to shop for something.
Don’t worry as you do have till the 31st to get this credit so it should calm down soon and then till the 15th April to spend it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
