10 out of 10.(10Ld offer).

I think you can see that this is a “classic” SL design and that it goes down to below your knee but it’s a fine classic for sure.

You do have to join the Continuum group which is free but this has been set for sale for just 10Lds, I don’t think this is one of those very limited time offers but I wouldn’t delay too much.  You get lots of mesh fits and even an Alpha.

I had to log back in as in the picture I took of it full length, I blinked which I seem to do a lot of lol.

If I’m remembering correctly you will find this on the wall to your left as you walk in and again there are other freebies for other free groups but this is the one I think was worth the Lindens.

I was wrong and right at the same time, New Mina Group Gift Hair.

This has turned into a long post but stick with it as there is more info about bargains etc.

The hair I was wearing in my last post is called Irma and when I saw the new GG from Mina Nakamura I would have sworn I was actually wearing the new GG but I was wrong.

This is Carmen the new GG.

Scroll back to my last post and apart from the excellent Dollarbies I’m showing you in that post you will be able to see the comparison between that hair, Irma, and this new one called Carmen which is the newest addition to the Group Gifts.

Mina not only comes up with fresh new designs she often takes what works brill in one hair and incorporates it into another hair to create a new look and that’s why this messy piled up bun with all those straggly bits looked familiar to me but Carmen has a bigger messier bun and even more of those face-framing stragglies.  This is also why I always put the link to Mina’s main shop so you can see if there are other hairs with a similar styling that you actually prefer and you can try them on before you make your mind up as to which one you prefer.  I mean how many times have we bought something and then found something we would have much preferred and kicked ourselves?

Carmen comes free but only for those who are already in the Mina VIP Group and that only cost 200Lds to join.  Although you only get this one shade for Carmen you do get the option of wearing it with or without the stragglies and this shade will never be used in another Carmen or other hair pack, I’m not really sure but it’s a one-off colour.

The other GG’s are a mix of one-off colours ie the Arwen bloodied version or actually full shade packs but you can see and try the demos out for yourself before you decided if it’s worth joining.

There is also a men’s selection in the group gift room and everyone should grab both the male and female hairs as some of them make fine unisex hairs.

I’m in a lot of paid for groups as some of them can be pretty generous but we also know of some where you pay a hefty joining fee and never seem to get anything back well in this case even if you just join the Mina VIP group and snag all of the GG’s inc the men as well you get so much back for your 200Ld investment but if you decide to stay then you also get 10% off each future purchase.

Trust me I would join the Mina VIP group if I had to and as soon as a notice of a new hair comes out I’d be TPing over.

PS.  For those of you on a budget the Gacha’s have some really lovely shop quality hair and you get the full hair colour pack plus some great hat/hair combos so if you’re willing to risk the shade then this is a great way of getting a bargain hair for 100Lds and under and you can even try a demo on before you make your mind up.

SORRY more spam but I think you will find it helpful.  The new GG is on the wall at the LM but the rest of them are in an area to the right of the new stuff wall, at the bottom of the stairs.  You will also notice that the Gacha machines have gone but they haven’t Mina has just replaced them with Gacha boards.  So the super Gacha bargains are still to be had.  Lastly but not least Mina had a big shake up and a lot if not all of her “old hair” is now on the Marketplace.  This isn’t “old” hair as such what it is is these are the hairs that have the 5 shades in the pack as standard but quite a while ago now Mina changed it so that it’s now 10 shades in a pack!  So instead of faffing with the other hairs and inc the colours she’s just slashed the prices to I believe about 125Lds so amazing hair at amazing prices as long as you shop on the MP!

I swear to God my next post will be short!

Blabby.(Free & Discounts).

I’ll try to keep this short ‘n’ sweet, HA HA.

In the  “Sass” shop you will find 3 very nice freebies and 3 very nice freebies which aren’t a fit for my SLink bod. I did get a decent enough fit with this pink dress which is still going into the trash as soon as I log in NOT because it’s not a lovely dress or because the fit isn’t the best it’s because it’s PINK!  YUK

Now for the not so free but worth it.

I got a message from one of our regular readers, Sia, (is that the right word to describe you lovely people who “read” our blog?) and she gave me a heads up about the return of a shop to SL called Lavian and when I typed the name into my invent up popped a folder of pants/trousers I used to wear all the time and still look so good I’m not sending them to the trash.

The Lavian group isn’t free, it’s 299Lds but there is a whole big room of GG’s so this one that if you have some Lds to spare then you will reap the rewards massively BUT before you splash any cash in the Group Gift room check out the Discount room because everything is not only just 99Lds but DAMN there is some good stuff.  If it wasn’t for the case I’ve splashed too much cash lately not only on my new head but I also bought a skin pack from PumeC as well I would have picked some of the stuff up not just to show you but to add to my invent.

I betcha didn’t know I used to blog for PumeC because just like Mina’s hair I LOVE PUMEC SKINS!  I don’t know if I let it slide or as the brand took off they didn’t need bloggers as much so it’s been a long time, years even, since I’ve not only blogged but had to buy a skin from PumeC as their skins just don’t age and it was only the fact I have a mesh head now that I decided to treat myself.  But again I like being a free(cheap) agent and even if it means I had to pay for the skin I think the price was more than reasonable.  So I’ve put the link to the PumeC shop just in case you want to check them out.

You might want to RUSH!(10Ld Giftie, Bargains and I think Freebies).

Sorry, I’ve been a RL Busy Bee but it was nice to get inworld and even nicer when this specially discounted skirt was the first thing I snagged.

You get a really good 10 colour hud, 5 shades and 5 patterns.

The reason you have to be quick is that the event this gift is available at is called E/M Events and opens it’s doors on the 1st of the month and then shuts it’s doors on the 15th of the month and it’s the 22nd of the month sooooooo I’m not sure if the few stalls that are there are ones that haven’t been packed up from the past event or have been set out for the next event so the long and short of it is if you like this skirt then TP now as it might not be there soon.

This cost 10Ld and I’m pretty sure that on the Pandora stall where I found it was another 10Ld gift and since the skirt turned out to be a winner I’m going back for that.  I do believe there are freebies because you will see circles with boxes in them and I think those are special gifts for different and free groups but I didn’t really linger to test that theory out, so check them out for yourself.

PS.  Not only my size and probably your size but there is even a “Werwolf & Fox” sizing!

UPDATE.  So I got the top which if you have a spare 10Lds I would suggest you get it. A simple band across your boobs, with off the shoulder straps, lacing and a 10 colour hud.  Although it can be worn to match the skirt I think it would look best with a bikini bottom or shorts.

It’s VD Day. (Mention of freebies ‘n’ cheapies).

OK going to try my hardest to make this a short post, but no promises.

A little lingerie set from Dirty Princess, free GG and super sexy panties and bra set but a rotten fit for my SLink body which is why this is a long shot because I could not take a close up without all my SLink flesh breaking through. I promise you I’m not boob flashing, the outfit has sexy sheer lazy panels which is why I look like I have very pink boobies. So not sure what body it’s meant to fit, prob a Maitreya but it cost nothing to try it for yourself.

The shoes are also freebies from the SL frees and offers group but you pick these up at the Legendaire shop entrance.  There are other paid for GG’s as well as some excellent discounts and scattered around are heart-shaped boxes for only 10Lds each.

Then I treated myself to these from one of the stands just outside of the Legendaire shop.

I’m not usually a big fan of these thick soles shoes but they have their uses and I thought these with that bow had a retro vibe to them plus with the 10 colour hud they’re going to be a handy pair of go-to shoes and only 67Lds

If you speed read this post it will deffo seem much briefer than it actually turned out lol.  The reason for quickness is I do believe the Dirty Princess gift is a Valentines one so you might want to grab that quickly.

PS. That’s my new gym/sports hall and sorry it ain’t free but at only 15 prims it was almost perfect for what I wanted, it’s a skybox and I want a land based one.  Anyhow I can’t wait till I’ve got time to shove all my gymmy stuff in there and pretend I’m a gym bunny.

It’s about time.(Mina’s Gacha Wins 100Lds or less).

I’m not going to blab on much because I do enough of it but I’ve mentioned a few times that in Mina’s mainshop there are Gachas and all are either 100Ld and in 1 case 75Lds and finally here is just an example to tease you.

Some of my fav goto hairs are Gacha wins.

Although you have to take your chances on the colours you do get the full colour pallet for that shade.  I think the 75Ld one is the only one which is limited in someway.

I’ve stuck to the mid browns tones but honestly, for example, the brown pallet goes from dark blonde to darkest brown.  I used to own a hair pack from a shop long gone in SL and in those days you didn’t have Huds and so this folder had 100’s  of hair and each a supposedly different shades in it but I could have binned almost all of them because the difference in the shading was almost non-existent but this is not the case with Mina’s hairs.

The weird thing is is that I rarely see Mina’s hairs in the yardsales so basically people must just be so happy with their wins there isn’t a big second-hand market for them.

I’m not even showing you them all as there are about 10 or 12 Gacha’s inc 2 hat/hair Gachas, although there are 3 styles of hats, of course, you can try before you buy because demos are available.  For 100Lds or less you can’t find finer hair.

PHEW, I can finally clear these pictures out of my folder now LOL.
