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!

No Freeness here!

Getting classy AF here.

SL is a lot of things to a lot of people but one thing we all love is playing at dressing up and with this Junbug gown and the new Mina hair I briefly mentioned it’s easy to look amazing.  Sorry neither are freebies, although I have a feeling that this dress was either a Group Gift or I took advantage of one of the regular FLF offers that Junbug has, because you know I won’t have paid full price for it lol.  I am in the Junbug group which cost 200Lds to join but I for one have been more than happy with the gifts given over the years and the FLF offers so you might want to think about joining that group.

But this post is about “Leslie” which is the STUNNING hair from Mina Nakamura.

I took these pictures in my fav Nams prim n skin setting but the rooms I have used have darkened the pictures slightly, part of me thinks I should have lightened the pictures a little bit but then again I know you will try before you buy because no matter how good it looks on me each and every AV is different but overall Mina’s hairs fit and suit everyone.

In RL when I look at classic paintings when there are fabric and pearls I press my face as close to the canvas as the security guard will allow me as I’ve always been fascinated how those 2 textures can be replicated with a few strokes of a paintbrush and it’s the same with Mina’s hairs.  Just look at the way the hair has been swept up or randomness and the strands loosely hanging down it’s all of this detailing which makes this so stylish.

This hair comes with the “style hud”, which a lot of the newer Mina hairs come with, and that allows you to wear the hair with the strands hanging down or swept back and tucked behind the ears and for once both looks suit me right down to the ground.  This hud also allows you to change the colour of the pearls, white and pearly pearl and their glow factor or to simply remove them.  This style of hair is perfect for adding your own tiara, crown, flowers or headdress to it.  She has a few other hairs with this oversized bun on top and it’s just such a good style and as it happens I decided when I logged into SL to get the Mina’s LM I would do just that and I added a tiara to this do and with the pearls already in the hair it was unbelievably pretty and classy but I didn’t save the picture I took!

This hair is only available at Uber and I wish you luck getting in, I actually managed to get in but in the end, I decided it wasn’t worth the struggle and I’d go back once the place had calmed down.  But as always the link to Mina’s main shop will be put first so you can try this demo out.

AND although this is at Uber the prizes ain’t “uber ridiculous”…ONLY 300LDs for this hair and as always a massive 26 colour pack!  I’m putting the link to the Seraphim blog so you can get the LM’s and see what’s else is for sale.  The Seraphim has the pictures listed alphabetically so scroll down to the M’s and you will see the picture of this hair and the details and you can also see the shades you get in each colour pack for yourself or of course pop over to Mina’s and grab the demo for yourself.

PS.  I don’t think there is any gifts at this event, the Seraphim blog doesn’t usually mention if there is and as I said the place was heaving so there may just be goodies for us.

UPDATE: I found the picture..

As I said when I was at Mina’s I decided to try out a Tiara and you will notice I have changed the setting to the hair being swept back behind my ears and as you can see it’s a perfect updo for wearing all your hair bling with.

I wasn’t going to do this post butttttt…(New Mina & Bargains.)

Although you can’t really see it I am carrying a weekend bag in my hand and that’s because I’m off for a couple of days, Woo Hoo.  Nothing exciting though and looking at the rain tipping down outside it’s going to be a very damp couple of days away but even that can have its own charm.  So I will be back either on Mon or Tue and until then be safe have fun and be kind to yourself.

I wasn’t going to do a post I was just killing some time before my ride turns up  when I remembered that when I was pulling a pose outside of Mina’s main shop there was a bit of a crowd so once I’d scored myself some bargains I went over to find out what was going on.

It’s a NEW hair which let’s face it Mina has to be one of the most productive hair makers in SL because she just keeps on coming out with new hair all the time and never seems to stint on the quality or design and yes this is a HAT HAIR!

“Hazel” comes with a fantastic ball cap style hat and the extras are 3 HUDS! One for your hair colour, one to have your hair styled different ways ie change the length of the ponytail and the tendrils framing your face, and the third one to change the colour of the cap and the peak.  All of the colours are subtle shades.  Actually, the hat at a pinch would make a great horse riding hat, you do get a black shade, and it has that nob on the top which is a standard design for horse riding hats and although the peak is longer than you would find on a helmet you could get away with it, all I need now is a horsey.

As for the bargains, the jacket is a new GG from Santino Design and it only costs 10Lds to join the group.  There are a few group gifts out inc this new one and also lots and lots of bargains both downstairs and upstairs, I know for a fact I have a few items from this shop esp some pants which have turned out to be really handy items.

DISCLAIMER.  Obviously, the sim setting and editing have changed the colour of the jacket but you will see from the picture in the shop it’s a more goldie gold and although in the picture they have this gold colour and a blue/teal colour I can only see one in the pack.

Scrunchy Wunchy.(Freebie, Cheapie and it’s time to join).

I LOVE AUTUMN!  I nestle like a little hamster in my chair with throws, crafting stuff, a murder program on TV and if I’m lucky a cat on my lap.

Who doesn’t love an oversized woolie which allows you to eat that extra piece of cake or slice of toast in the morning?  This one is FREE from Amiable.  You get 2 versions, orange and this is the yellow colour and although the editing has deepened the yellow I’m shocked that I actually like this shade better than the orange.  Comes in all the mesh fits which in this case isn’t really needed because as you can see from the design it’s a “one size fits all” design.

There are lots of gifts at Amiable which you probably already have had at some stage but if you’ve never been there you’re in for a treat.  If you like this top and want it in a different shade then for 10Lds you can join the Teleporthub group and get this in that shade.

There is a new Group Gift at Mina’s and I DON’T HAVE IT! Whaaaa?

I’m going to have to check this out BUT it looks like the Mina joining fee is now ONLY 200Lds! TBH it was only 250Lds before and considering how much you get even at that price a cheap way to score some great hair AND 10% discount on each purchase.  I’m going to assume it’s going to be at this lower 200Ld for the foreseeable future but “don’t delay join today” urk cringy.

There is a LOT of hair in the group gift area to the right of the event boards, however, the newest GG is at the landing spot so grab that first before you get the rest which you will find to the right of the “event/new boards”.  I don’t actually have the new GG called Sanne but I can see it has 2 of the features Mina’s hairs excel at and that it has a lovely detailed plait going down the back and a “style” hud which allows you to change the way the strands of hair hang and frame your face.

PS.  There is a version of a hair I wear a lot called “Arwen” but this is the bloodied version so perfect if you want a subtle and yet Halloween hair and make sure to check out the rest of the shop as there is other “Bloodied” hair plus although I’ve not worn it yet Blair with it’s exaggerated “wing” style is not only dramatic but sexy and cute at the same time.

UPDATE.  Woah, I’ve just rechecked and Sanne comes with the “Essential Fat Pack” which contains more than just 1 black, 1 brown, 1 blonde etc it contains a MASSIVE 28 shades!

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”?
