Squeeeeeze (Freebie n Black Friday).

I for one have completely ignore Black Friday both in RL and SL, too poor to even snag a bargain, but on my travels yesterday I popped over to Dimbula Rose and found not only some beautiful sim decor items but when I used the TP to the next level a cute “ginger” and since I was already wearing one of the ginger/blonde shades of Mina hair I popped home and took a quick snap.

The skins at Dimbula Rose are very girlish and Kawaii and that includes the boys skins LOL.  As I was re checking the place out I also one of the skins from the 3 LBs on the ground floor.

The “orange” skin has also given me an excuse to SCREAM get over to Mina’s as this is one of many shops that is involved in The Black Friday Sales and WOW 50% off what looks like the whole stock so this is the time to get over there and grab some real treats.

Whilst you’re there you may also notice a notice board which when clicked will give you the link for the Avi Choice Awards and it’s time to let your voice be heard, of course in the “Favourite Female Hair Designer” and not forgeting the “Favourite Male Hair Designer” section I’m going to recommend you click Mina’s tag.  I won’t rave on again as to why I think she deserves a pat on the back but she does and even if you chose someone else then that’s OK as well.  I don’t think that sometimes we give creators the acknowledgement of all their hard work so every click they get is like a pat off the back.  Of course the list is for more than just hair there is a whole raft of categories inc some of the biggest to smallest names and we all love to click boxes.

The Bad Penny Is Back With A Splash!

I’m BACK, like a bad penny some would say.  Just before I left to go on my short break I’d managed to get my sweaty paws on not 1 but 4 COMPLETELY NEW MINA HAIRS!  sorry for shouting but I was so chuffed with them that I actually took most of these pictures before I went on my holiday when I really should have been packing and now I’m back I can finally get to show you them.

XXXSwimuse

This is my vanity shot I just had fun doing it but this hair worked out perfectly to cover my Free Mermaid skins boobies.

OK Quick mention about the Freebie which is the mermaid skin, you can just about see the pale scales in the second picture.  She comes from Lumae and is called Niska and is the Enchantment Hunt prize, what you’re looking for is a blue shell and if I found it you should have no problem as well.  A very generous prize as it comes with so many appliers, skin layers and even shapes tbh I don’t have the time to list them.  PS if you don’t care for this particular skin check out all the other Free ones there, I have blogged them before as they’re that good.

The Mina hair is thick and glorious as it drapes over your curves.  This is big hair at it’s best and so realistic.  Called Laila and you can only find her, at this moment, at the “Festival of Sin II” which I have to be honest and say I know nothing about.

Now I’ve had a chance to pop over it looks like it’s going to be a very interesting experience, this is the note you get.

“The Rules,

1. Have fun!

2. Don’t be shy, we encourage debauchery of all kinds. We’re equal opportunity sinners.

3. EXPLORE! There are lots of hidden surprises lurking about the sim. Click things, look around corners. Have a seat. >:}

4. Don’t be a dick.
That is all.

If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact Shiloh Selene (Barbie.Glas).”

LOL I love those sort of rules. Where you land you can click on the big board behind you and get the Hud which TPs you to the different sinful areas and you will find Mina’s in the Lust section.

Then check this hair out for a complete change of look. I’ve labelled this picture on my comp as Miss Mouse.

How can all things beige be so beautiful?  Of course I picked the light brown colour and it goes without saying that you have any shade you wish from the blackest of black to Zingy Orange and everything in between.

XXXMissmouse2

A lovely simple and yet complicated hair even the pony tail is tied back with a strip of hair.  Honestly as ridiculous as it sounds sometimes when I get a new Mina Hair it inspires me to try a new style and although I’ve just had a recent chop and my hair isn’t as long as this lovely hair is I’ve dug out some hair pins and have tried it out for myself and it looks just as good in RL as SL.  This hair, Anais is available @ the Shiny Shabby event and the LM takes you right to the Mina stall…and you don’t have to be all grown up and “adult” to get to this event LOL.

Fancy Pants.

OH Lord I’ve burned my hand but fortunately the pain killers have started to kick in and I am finally able to show you this.

As much as I love to show off the Freebies sometimes you have to spend a few Lindens and to make me spend my Lindens it must be something really worth it and that’s my exact thought when I tried on this “Fancy Pants” outfit from Entice.

XXXFancypants2

How gorgeous is this whole look.  Comes as a one piece but the addition of a Hud which allows you 3 texture options for the jacket, shirt and shorts means you can chop and change.

XXXFancypants

Going to confuse you now.  You will find this discounted item under the 55Lds Thursday sign, turn to your right and go in that way, but in fact it cost me 100Lds however the full priced options are 300Lds so this is a definite bargain.  There was another discounted pack which had more glittery/disco textures which sounds awful but I loved that one as much as this and it was a struggle which to get. The demos for all of the colour packs are there and you do have to pay a Linden for it but it gets paid right back to you.

Special mention to the hair and skin because in my previous post I only mentioned them in passing.  The hair is one I’ve previously blogged but it’s now available at the latest round of Kustom9 but in the whole colour colour palette range inc Ombres.  While you’re waiting for that event to calm down then this skin is one of the old Lara Hurley Group Gifts which I mentioned and this one does come with the Appliers.  Again I adored the New Free to Join GG’s skin and if you do have a few Lindens then 150 to buy the Applier Pack is not unreasonable at all.

OOKKAAYY pain killers have definitely kicked in so I think I’m having an attack of the munchies!

Even without, (freebie).

Wow this skin is simply stunning.

XXskinuse

Called Ale and she is the new Free GG from Lara Hurley skins.

Normally I don’t show any skins that don’t come with what I consider to be even the basic SLink Appliers and this skin doesn’t come with any at all, in fact I’m pretty sure you even just get the 1 brow shade but again she’s simply so lovely I couldn’t resist showing you her.  Of course though unlike lazy me if you don’t want to buy any additional appliers which are available in the shop to buy then you can simply use the SLink hand/feet skin matching hud.  Appliers have made us so lazy but they’re just so handy however I do remember having to use the skin matching hud and it’s easy to use.

UPDATE! So I went and LM grabbed and the Appliers are more than reasonable as it seems for 150Lds you get a full pack of them.  Be careful when picking which pack to buy so it matches your skin but a pretty reasonable price and add to that the old Group Gifts are still out for you to grab.

Rebooting (Dollarbies).

I love how the techies call it “rebooting” when a simple “turn it off and then back on again” is really what they mean.  So at about my 6th “rebooting” I finally got reconnected to the internet and since my inworld time was limited I did some MP surfing and I can’t believe what I found….MORE skins and at a single Linden worth it.

skin1

OK I have major editing fun with this picture but this skin “St Valentin” comes with some serious contouring make up which lends itself to a very dramatic look. TBH as soon as I tried it on I knew exactly the dress, hair, pose and even where to go to take the shot.  This skin comes with only the 1 skin but all of these appliers, EVE, Nyam Nyam, Baby Bump, Wowmeh, Lolas and OMEGA.

However if you want a more natural skin check this out.skin2Comes with 4 Make Ups & Freckles (worn) & Clean Face  & Extra Make Up  & Alpha Lashes & 3 eyebrow shapers & Appliers for Wowmeh & Slink Physique & Slink Hands & Slink Feet & Lolas. Thats a LOT of “&”.

Remember though I’m wearing my own shape which is a Anna Shapes which seem to be only available on the Marketplace and all I wear nothing but Anna Shapes and just the 80Lds ones.

Although there is a link for an inworld shop I’ve not actually managed to find it so you will have to pick these up from the MP.

Fab FULL packed skin Freebie.

Small confession, I’m about 99% sure I’ve blogged this skin before but even if I have it deserves to be reblogged because one things for sure I don’t remember it coming this packed full of Appliers! So here it is again, maybe.

intrepred

It comes from Lumae and if you join the Free Lumae group and the SL Frees & Offers group you can in fact grab 4 skins/applier packs.

You get so much in each pack not just 2 actual skins (Pearl and Amber, worn) but also all the eyebrow layers and all the Appliers you could want.  SLink, SLink Visage, Omega Head, Mouth Appliers, TMP Head, TMP Body, AMD Bump Applier & Omega Body, Maitreya and oodles of tat layers.  OH and 2 shapes which are pretty cute as well but I am wearing my own.  I also have to confess that I’m wearing my own make up as well.  I had a rummage around the Marketplace and picked up some freebies and cheapies inc make up so I decided to try them out.  These skins do come with a really nice make up layer but if like me you have a whole folder full of lippies and eye shadows it’s also nice to get a free skin that allows you to wear them as well.

flowers

However what is making this skin an absolute keeper for me is the cleavage options.  In this picture, under the strategically placed flower heads is the perkiest little boobies I’ve come across.  Love them and I love my Lola’s but I also love the option to be “perky” and these perky boobs are also inc in the tattoo layers as well.  If you’re into the big boobies then don’t panic as you have about 5 actual boob options.

Also what you can’t see because I’ve photo edited is the freckles, light and beautifully natural.

I think this skin was called Amber and the other skin you get in the same pack is called Pearl and she’s pale and beautiful and I haven’t tried that skin in full so I can’t wait to see.  I haven’t even had time to grab the other SL Frees & Offers Gift which is right next to the Lumae one so that was just lazy of me.

PS I’ll pop a NAKED picture on my Flickr so you can see the perkiness for yourself.

PPS There is another whole row of Freebies but I’ve had a quick check and they don’t look as though they come with anything like Appliers but then again not everyone wants Appliers so click away.

Sn@tch this (Oh So Cheap).

OK will have to confess it’s been an absolute age since I last popped into The Dressing Room Fusion (TDRF) Event but when I was working my way through my notes I came across the latest one from Sn@tch and as soon as I spotted this bargain priced beauty I was off to go grab it.

snat

That frilly frill makes all the difference.  I chose the purple one but there is a red and silver version and at only 40Lds so cheap!

filmstochsnatch

This is a very quick post because I don’t know when this latest round is over and I didn’t want to leave this too late.  Remember everything here is priced between 40-70lds and
