It’s still Christmas. (15Ld Hunt & New Mina&Mention of Freebie).

I love the windlight setting on the Mina sim, it’s so freaking flattering.  I’m always tempted to drop her a note and ask for the details but she is one busy lady and I hate to bother her.

I’m still wearing jeans and glasses from my last post but the top I was wearing came from Ricielli and since it’s Spring/Easter time I popped over hoping that Ricielli has another one of their excellent hunts on and they do but it’s still the Christmas gifts.

My disappointment at nothing new was sweetened by the 2 prizes I bought.  As this is a paid for hunt there is a big poster with pictures of what’s in each box and more importantly, the sizes as not all the clothing comes in all the main mesh fits.  The clothes are shop quality.  I will say I was surprised as this top is supposed to be a mint colour and I don’t know if the sim lighting has changed it, doubtful, but it’s not mint.  NO complaints as I love this colour and down the back it has a flattened hoodie.

The second picture shows the other “prize” I treated myself to and this one deffo comes in the 2 colours the picture shows, this brown and a lovely dark green.

If you don’t know Ricielli then you won’t know that all of the old hunt gifts are stashed away in one of the buildings.  Still at the 15Lds prices but such a variety of casual wear, club wear, shoes, skirts etc.  To get there head out of the main shop and you will see a signpost, just click on the one for the emmm I think it said shoes/sale/discount etc something like that.

More hats now.

As you can see from these two pictures the hat/hair is very similar.  Hazel is the bottom picture and Fleur is the top.  Fleur is the newest hair although Hazel was only brought out a couple of weeks ago.

I will admit I much prefer Hazel, there is a ponytail down the back which you can even change the length of using the “style hud” but it’s the tendrils that frame your face I like the best and they too can be changed by using the hud.

Fleur, top picture, is so new you can only buy her from the Kustom9 event and again comes with a styling hud which is this case allows you to change the way the hair hangs down ie over one shouldn’t left or right or just simply hanging down the back.

PS.  I almost forgot there is a FREEBIE in the Ricielli shop, the LM takes you right next to it.  This is a stunning freebie but I know I’ve blogged it at least twice so I don’t really want to do it again.

Not gonna bore you, NEW Mina & T’other Freebie.

Blah, blah, blah I will try to keep the description of the new Mina hair as brief as I can, fingers crossed here I go.

Available @Uber, but demo in the main shop.  Big colour hud and “style” hud which allows you to chose which side the parting is on and the extra details is that the swept back fringe/bangs is held in place by 3 little clips or I think they’re called “Bobby pins”?  Scroll back through my more recent posts to see me wearing it in other pictures.

BTW There is a nice bit of clearance on the neck and shoulders and I’m now kicking myself that I didn’t wear something with a collar to show you how it can fit over clothing rather well but I did say I was going to show you the other Freebie I’d picked up from Osmia.  This skin-tight bodysuit? comes in just as big a hud as the one in my last post but I went for the “Kanye” look ie nude.

Get floppy.(New Mina@FaMESHed & Freebie & Mention of Freebie).

All you regulars will know exactly what I’m going to say by now but I’m still going to say it, go and try the demo out for yourself in Mina’s main shop first.

“Tuula” is only available at FaMESHed and since it’s just opened and it will be lag Hell so why bother, just head on over to Mina’s main shop and try the demo of this hair lag-free before you make your mind up.

This hair/hat comes with the now standard for new Mina hairs a massive 30 shade in each hud pack, 5 textures for the hat and in this case 3 sizes to fit the hair hanging down over your boobies.  For me, the Woohoo factor is the inclusion of a hat only option.  Nothing wrong with this long hair but I finally got around to editing a short hair, a Mina hair as it happens, which can be worn with hats and it frames my face with subtle strands I just have to find the blinking thing in my invent now.

Can I just mention Gacha’s?  As a yard sale addict, I rarely see Mina hairs coming up for resale which is a reflection on how people must love the hair they’ve won even if they don’t get the shade they had wanted and I’ve just checked the SLmarketplace and it’s the same thing there, yes there are Mina’s hair but not as many as I would have expected and the reason I’m mentioning this is that if you like this style of hair then there is one in one of the Gacha’s at Mina’s.  That hat has a shorter brim and I can’t remember the details about the colour pack etc but all the info is on the Gacha itself so you can check it out but for 75Ld a superb bargain, the potential downside is that that particular Gacha has 2 styles of hats in it, the shorter floppy one and bowler hat which is actually pretty cute so if you don’t mind a risk check out the Gacha’s.

PS, The dress is a freebie and I don’t think I blogged this texture, I blogged the other shade in the pack but this texture suited the hat best.   The shop it comes from, Seniha has a NEW freebie out, but it didn’t go with this hat and tbh I wanted to show you the hat off more than the dress so check out the link to Seniha for this dress, the new dress plus all the other really good freebies and lucky boards.

Change of mind! (New, Kinky, Mina).

I know nothing about “Peanut no9” or “RLV”? or whatever, I am as Vanilla as that tub of ice cream in our freezer but I know this sort of thing is popular both in RL and SL.

This is Kim and she comes with the attached collar which is a “Peanut no9 Collar” controlled one.  Don’t worry if it’s new to you or it’s something you want to know more about as a full explanation note is included.  Actually Peanuts aside this is such a pretty hair, I LOVE the way the strands are under the collar and even worn as an every day wear it has that kink edge to it which will have people looking twice, it also has NEW colours as well.

BUT

If you’re wanting another hair with a bit of “kink” just not so much kink as the collar gives you then check this hair out.  I hated the original pictures I took of “Eden” so when I was over at Mina’s I decided to give it a second try and I am much happier with this picture.

Again it’s the way the strands of hair are woven under and over the blind and although you can’t see it the blind is tied in a very realistic knot. I often wear this hair just walking around which may seem odd but sometimes it’s nice to be just that little bit different and again I love the little kinky twist.

This hair called “Eden” is in Mina’s main shop as she is an older hair, but with the new big colour hud, and you will find her pretty darn close to the old Group Gift areas, hint hint, to the right of the reception desk and again although you can try the demo for Kim in the shop you get that from the FaMESHedX event.

In case you haven’t noticed it that’s an “X” on the end of the FaMESHed LM.  This is a new and very adult-themed event so adults only but if you can’t or don’t want to go to an adult-themed event don’t worry as I’m sure it won’t be long afterward when Kim can be bought from the Mina main shop.  Don’t worry though because this is one of the classier themed kinky events and even Apple Fall has a stall there with some very unusual decor items so it’s worth going just to look at them lol.

PS.  Yes I did have to edit out one of the nips as we’re only allowed 1 nip slip lol.

Save to spend.(New Mina).

As someone who takes pictures all the time, I LOVE hair and clothes that have a windblown look to them.

The hair, not the hat, is called Karen and this is one of the more dramatic windswept hair’s so not everyone will find it a wearable look for them, unless they too love to take pictures and in that case you will love this hair even more.  It won’t surprise you when I say that you need to check out her main shop not only because this is where you buy this hair but Mina also has a really lovely range of hairs that have a windswept look to them, some are very subtle ie a few strands across the face and one where it looks like you’ve stuck your finger in a socket so shop around first.

You will see the stand this hair is on is for something called “FaMESHed Go” which is relatively newish.  Buy this hair the same way as normal but if you want to check out the other brand new designs then grab the hud and you can scroll through their offers and using the Hud TP to the shop.

PS.  This hair cost only 300Lds and you get a massive 30 shades in each colour pack hud AND a styling hud which in this case will change the way your hair is flowing.

I’M SO SORRY! I’m just a complete and utter BABBLER!  !(Freebie ‘n’ new Mina).

Let me sum up this post because I just can’t help but going overboad with the Babbling! So the next sentence will sum it all up nicely for you and you can miss the rest.

Free Dress for all at Mirus, New Mina hair @Blush and Discounted hairs@Mina and all links at the bottom so feel free to scroll.

When they said it would snow I thought they were April Fooling us but guess what…they weren’t and it’s a nasty, gray, cold day with ploppy wet snow ruining everything.  So I’ve cranked up the heating and nestled down for a day of doing nothing…and for a while that inc SLing but then I remembered that yesterday I along with EVERY OTHER CHEAP B* had TPed over to Mirus to grab this Free for all freeby.  Since the notice did say it was only for a limited time I decided that I would pop in as I would hate for anyone to miss it.

Check out the pert boobies, I love outfits that give you perkies rather than gazungas LOL.

I almost didn’t go to get this because for some reason I thought it only came in 1 size and 2 colours, this cream and a black one, but I’m glad I did as it actually comes in plenty of sizes and colours/textures.  The board is just in the entrance to Miras and I think it’s calmed down now so should be easy to grab.

The hair is a new one from Mina’s and you get it from the Blush event butttttt the minute I put it on I knew that I already have a hair with very similar characteristics and I just had to hunt it down.  Don’t get me wrong this new hair, Maria, is different but what Mina Nakamura does is when she creates a style that works she works that style into another hair to create a bit like a Version 2 and sometimes it’s a lot better than Version 1 esp since now as standard her colour packs are so much bigger.  That also means the price tag is bigger but not unreasonably so and we all know the cost of great hair packs in most shops do on the whole retail for around the same price in any case.  I think they’re only cheaper when you get fewer shade options.  And of course a lot of Mina’s hairs now come with “options” which allow you to change the styling of your hair, quite often it’s the fringe, as in this case, or even in some cases you can have the hair coming down over 1 shoulder, 2 shoulders or just hanging down the back and all of that takes so much time and effort to create that you don’t mind paying what is not an unreasonable price.

Doesn’t mean to say in this case that great hair has to cost as the hair that I think has a lot of similarities to this new one is called Elin and you will find that hair upstairs in the discounted section of Mina’s main shop and that hair pack is the standard 5 shades, you obviously can chose which shade pack you want or even buy the fatpack at a discounted price as well because the standard pack is only 125Lds but I didn’t check out the price of the fat packs.  Lots of different colour packs to choose from as well.  I don’t know why “Elin” is up in the discounted section because she’s still as new and fresh as the day she was a new release I think it must be because that all of the newer Mina hairs come with the bigger shade colour packs as standard the time it would take to update her “old” stock just isn’t time effective which means WOO HOO for people who are on a limted budget because these cheaper hairs are still the best.

Coffee time.(Freebie ‘n’ Bargains ‘n’ Pocket Gacha)

A bit of a random selection here of free, cheap & Gacha.

Vanity shot.

The dress is a freebie from a shop called ISHARA.  There is a whole selection of freebies but for different free to join groups.  If the LM doesn’t take you to where the freebies are then they’re just inside one of the doorways to your left as you walk in.  This dress comes with a hud that allows you to change the colour of the top half.

I’d just slung these on to have something on my feet but even though I know they’re oldies because they still looked good I decided to check out the Mirus mainshop and didn’t see them in there however they’re on the Marketplace shop for only 10Lds. You get the 4 main mesh feet fits plus a 6 colour option Hud and they’re good work a day shoes.

Lia is the long loose ponytailed and Anna is a loose tuck up at the nape of the neck version.  I’m pretty sure that both of them have the same top part and it’s the way the hair is at the back that is different.  They also have a superb option which has crept into a lot of Mina’s hairs and that’s the way the strands of hair hang down.  You have a total of 4 options, going from this top picture with all those loose strands hanging down framing my face to the bottom picture, which I’ve recycled, and in that one you can see I’ve used the lesser strand option so when wearing glasses you don’t get them breaking through or you simply can remove them all.  So 1 hair with 4 different ways of wearing it.

Wow not only are they great Mina hairs but they’ve turned out to be even greater bargains as they’re Gacha hairs!  Mina isn’t mean with her Gacha hairs and although in this case you don’t know if you’re going to get Lia or Anna but they’re shop quality hair not old stuff she doesn’t sell anymore but brand new designs that she could sell for full price in her shop and again although you have to risk it for the colour you do get a full large colour pack and not just a single shade and all of that for a measly 75Lds!

I know people love their Mina Gacha wins because in all the years I’ve trawled Yardsales I’ve only ever come across a Mina hair pack for sale about twice so people aren’t getting rid of what they have won and I know I’ve said it many times but some of my fav Mina hairs are Gacha wins and if you want to check them out they’re all just inside of her shop and of course Demo’s available.

By now most people will have seen the “Pocket Gacha” terminals.  If Gacha’s couldn’t get more addictive they have now because this is a hud means you don’t have to trawl through a laggy event, or TPed from shop to shop you can just sit down in your home, platform, hangout spot and open your hud and shop away.  It’s super easy to use, had nice little features which allow you to see your favourite designers first etc so if you’ve not tried it out yet check out the Mina’s mainshop as the LM takes you not just to the demos for these 2 hairs but there is aPocket Gacha Hud terminus right there and you can pick up a copy have a seat and just try it out.

PS if you’re in the Mina Group which I do believe only costs 200Lds not only is there a large selection of men/women/unisexed hairs she now has a New Group Gift out.
