DON’T PANIC! I’m still here…OK panic a little bit if you really want to but I come with FREEBIES!

See even Faith with her over stuffed invent, and it’s BIGGER than mine, still couldn’t resist trying her hand at the New Mina Gacha hair and if you  missed it she’s mentioned in her post that she will be more than happy to pass it on.  I think it’s because it’s the brown shades and Faith a 100% Blondie in SL and RL.  So drop her a NOTE, not a IM but a NOTE lol and I’m pretty sure that as soon as she returns she will send this lovely gift onto the first one she opens.

First the Freebie and you will be relieved to know you won’t have to unpack every freebie you grab from The Gacha Garden because it didn’t  come from there and by “it” I mean this cute shorts/top/jacket combo.  All linked so you can’t wear them as separates.  Excellent top quality outfit for FREE and there is a matching outfit for men as well.

You will find not just the freebies but a really nice friendly greeter when you land at Gizza so say “Hello” to her before you grab this and any other of the pretty large selection of men/women, mesh and non mesh outfits just waiting for you outside.

Yes I finally went to The Gacha garden event and yes I went Gacha crazy.  Even though there is a massive amount of Gifts set out in and around the Gacha’s there was also too much temptation and I spent ALL of my Lindens and I’ve not even had a chance to start unpacking both paid and free stuff! I need to attend GA(Gacha Addicts).  But at least my financial ruin will be your gain once I get stuff sorted into my keep and donate pile.

OK the Non Free but since the Mina hair is at a bargain price of 100Lds a try then it’s a super bargain.  Obviously you will have to take a chance on the colour pack you get but I’ve not found  a colour I didn’t like.  The front of this hair is a tight to the scalp hair band, the texture is reminiscent of a jersey type fabric with a fine texture not a knit as is the case with her winter hats etc  You also get in the Colour Hud a choice of whatever colour pack you won plus a 6 colour option for the hair band.

XXXMina4

I’ve turned around to show you the back as well because it’s not just the wide hair band but also this very loose and textured low bun on the back which makes it stand out.  You will also be able to see that the scarf ends are showing slightly lower than the hair.  I should have changed the colour to make it stand out a bit more.

Never ever buy a hair, skin or a shape without trying it on.  I’ve been burnt too many times buying before trying so as always I will put the Link to Mina’s main shop because although The Gacha Garden was pretty quiet when I went you might just want to try not just this one but the other, full priced but brand new Mina hair, in lag free measure.  You will also find that there is another recent hair which has that great bun but not the scarf so if you like that but are not sure then make sure to check Mina’s out and try both before you decide.

PS I’ve just spotted next to the board in the entrance way where you can snag the Demos and LM’s for the 2 New Mina’s there is also a Discounted item set out for The Mix and suprisingly enough I wore the very same hair 2 posts ago, the “I come with roses” post.  So time to scroll back check out that post for the hair and of course Faiths post as she is also showing you some of the Freebies she did unpack.

A complete MIX. (Bargains, free, NEW)

I’m so happy I found  a packet of Jaffer Cakes in the back of my cupboard so my sugar craving has been sated plus I’ve won 2 pairs of NEW boots on eBay for less than £15! TOTAL! SL is turning out to be just as rewarding as well.

The Mix is just that a mix of “Sales, New & Exclusive” items and I knew that as soon as I saw the colour Hud with this hair it was one of the “Exclusive” offerings.  Called Lieke and the style is probably familiar to you as I’ve shown and used this hair many times before but the colours are definitely different.  It’s hard to explain because they’re a bit ombre in style or highlighted but only on the tips of the ends fortunately since I’m not doing too great a job of describing the colours there is a Demo set out for you to try first.

XXXCellurb

You will see on the stand that you can get the Hud for The Mix which is the quickest way to see which shops are in The Mix and what it is they’re offering ie a sale item or new etc.  To get this Hud you can either join the in world group but I’d recommend getting it through the Marketplace, for free of course, because while you’re on the Marketplace you can also snag these adorable free shoes and slap (thats slang for make up).

XXXCellurb1These come from the Alaskametro shop, you get 4 mesh feet options and of course I used my SLink High feet.  Such a lovely iridescent sheen to them.  They do come with a Hud but that just changes the soles I say “but” but nothing because a really lovely gift.

XXXCelluse2

Now look closer at my face, this is the same FREE skin I showed you in my last post but with one of the Free makeup layers and also a Toothsome smile from the Alaskametro shop.   Some of the make up esp in the Fat Pack one is pretty old but not only is it standing upto the test of time some of the Freebies I grabbed came with Appliers for Mesh Heads and the toothy grin I have on my face is a tattoo layer and as you can see I think it looks pretty good.

If you’ve wondering the dress comes from Dirty Princess and it was so sexy it made me spend Linden on it! Can’t remember how much I paid for it but it was full priced and well worth it for the sheer sexiness it makes you feel plus it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and mesh body sizing.  I’ve just TPed over to Dirty Princess and spotted a new GG there of latex/leather knee-length boots.  I’ll show you them in my next post cos SL and RL time is running out.

Mix it up with a New Mina Bargain and a Great Freebie.

Indulge me, I rezzed one of my fav houses but sadly for me the prims are so high I only use it for a backdrop and as soon as I get my snaps I have to pack it back up again! OH for unlimited prims!

XXXHippyfilmrela

The shorts I’m wearing are the ones from my previous post and as it happens they are perfect with my Free Hippy Chick Top I snagged from the B!asta shop@The Boho Culture Fair.  It  comes in all the Mesh sizes, Fitmesh and Mesh body sizes so basically a fit for everyone.  Actually now I’ve been over to the B!asta shop@The Boho Culture Fair to LM grab I will be heading back there as soon as I click post because there are oodles of Free and Dollarbies in the shops so I’m going to click and grab for all I’m worth and I’ll show you what I scored in my next post.  If the LM doesn’t take you direct to the B!asta shop then it’s not far from the Landing spot and I’m sure you too will have fun grabbing the goodies.

I also have to say though I did check out the full priced items and argh just like I wish I had unlimited prims I wish I had unlimited Lindens because there is a lot of temptation there.XXXHippy2

This is a Mina hair I’ve shown you before called Anais but now it’s her offering for the Mix, which is a mix of new, unique and some discounts and this is at a really good 50% discount.  So a hair colour pack cost only 124Lds or for a little bit more money you can buy the essentials pack or go the whole hog and buy the Fat Pack which again is at half price.

XXXHippyrela

If you’ve not checked the Mix out yet then zoom in on the stand the items are on because there is a panel for you to click and grab the Hud and this makes it so easy to see where and who is in the “Mix” the TPs and I’m pretty sure it also has colour coding to it to show you which shops are offering a discount and which there is something unique to the mix etc.  It’s yet one more thing for me to check out when I get back inworld.

PS the Mix is more than just hair, it’s poses, clothes, furniture etc I’ve seen everything this round from a pair of moon boots to a castle.

PS Down but not out, I tried to get back to the Boho event but the sim is down…so give it a little while and hopefully it will be back online soon.

Neve NEW ! - Fri.day boots $87L! Elua hair DISCOUNTED!

A new round of The Mix is underway yippee! I love this event and what makes it even more speshul is Neve @ coldLogic are participating. For this round Neve has some fabulous fat packs of skirts & sweaters. Seriously, there is a whole HEAP of various designs, fabric, wools to check out. You can rifle through and snap up a few packs while the event is on for a discounted price. Above I’m wearing the “Espirit dye” sweater that comes in four different tones, and the denim skirt which is in, of course, delicious denim tones from back to light blue. The sooper dooper HUD for the top allows you to take the scarf on and off – brill ! Go take a peek, there’s suede, nobblybobbly wools and floral etc to take a gander at. The Mix is run by a HUD, which you can get your paws on from the market place , linked below.

I’m also wearing Elua’s offering “iola2” all colour packs for just  $125L per pack and from Fri.day the boots “Rosie” in coal, different colours on offer for the low price of $87L a pop. My watch was a birthday gift from Player – I loved it SO much I bought another in a different colour – yes I really did ! It’s by a new-to-me store Muschi, not exactly a cheap trinket but so lush , definitely worth a look.

Our Halloween

If you were wondering what Player and I were up too last night – we hopped around the Grid looking for some spoooooky FUN! We ended up at a very atmospheric Freak show and found this guy to pose with ! Its not all about shopping is it ❤

Sale, New & Exclusive.

I’ve been doing a little bit of “The Mix” now that you have a much handier and so easy to use Hud it’s a lovely way to kill some time and find yourself a “sale, new or exclusive” treat.  Simply wear or add the hud and you can see all of the great shops involved in The Mix and you can also see by the colour coding if the item on offer is a sale, new, exclusive item and one click takes you right to the shop you want to visit which brings me to the  Mina’s “sale” item.

XXXCinnioe

I’ve shown you Laila before, if I remember correctly I was dressed as a Mermaid, you’ve got to Love SL LOL.  Laila is a BIG hair which makes you feel super glammed.  Now that it’s at half price it also means it’s a super bargain.  You can still choose from the colour range and the specials which inc the Ombre’s and pastels are only 125 for 5 shades but if you want to keep to the more normal shades then a big pack of 9 “essential” colours so everything from the blondest of blondes to the blackest of black and in between is ONLY 150Lds! but if you want to be greedy and get them all then the really BIG Fatpack of 29 shades is only 375Lds and that’s only 125Lds more than a standard priced hair pack anywhere else for so many amazing shades.  This is really the time to snag a bargain and don’t worry as always a Demo is there for you to try.

XXXCinnie

The dress is also new and as soon as I put it on I put aside the hunt I was planning on doing because I LOVE it!   Comes from Ever Wonders shop More Than Ever and you get a Hud with the 3 colour choices, the top one which is a reddy red, this one is a brownie red and the bottom one is a pinky peach LOL.  I’m sure Ever Wonder has proper names for these shades but I think I’ve got the colours right.

So for only 99Lds you get a simple sweet, excellent textured dress with colour changing and great fitting dress and just to make sure that this will fit you actually 5 standard mesh sizes, 5 fitmesh sizes and 3 mesh body sizes so basically a fit for any shape.  You will have to go to the Designer Showcase to pick up this lovely offering but I’m pretty sure that the LM will take you right to Ever Wonders stand.  I’ve got to have more of a wander around to see what else is there myself.

XXXCinnie4

Back to more Mina hair, because I wanted to show you more of the dress I swapped my big hair for this lovely light wind-blown Mina hair called Elvira.  Even a hardened RL Brunette like me cannot help but think this whole look is so subtly summery and sexy.

XXXCinnie6

Elvira isn’t on offer at the moment but at 250Lds for a 5 shade pack the pricing is pretty standard,unlike the hair.

PS I’ve forgotten to add the LM for the More Than Ever mainshop which is worth while to pop into as there is still Group Gifts set out so when I get a chance to get back inworld I’ll try to pop it onto this post.

Its all in the Mix

Neve NEW!!

If you’re out & about looking for some stylish additions to your Autumn wardrobe – hop over to coldLogic and check out the new collection from Neve. Of course I gravitated towards the striped version of the “embrace” dress, gotta love me some stripe action ! Gorgeous colour palette on offer for this item, and the same design comes in two other options – a plain & a sort of colour wash effect.

neve NEW!!!

There is a scarf that comes along with this item, use the HUD to make it visible or invisible – easy peasy. Unusually for moi, yes I’m showing the rear – just so you can see the lovely scarf, it really adds a dash of glamour to the whole look. Ohhh btw, the boots are new too – I popped over to Fameshed this morning and snapped them up. By JD and called Polo boots, great range of yummy Autumnal colours plus PINK *squeeeee*.

neve NEW!!!!

Here’s the plaid version of the new “acute” dress, so eye-catching and sleek. Two more options for it on sale is the lively & neutral. The HUD allows you to alter the belt colour and whether to have it on or off – brill!  Neve supports all the major mesh bodies plus of course the standard mesh sizing. I am wearing all clothing over my Slink Physique mesh body.

My new hair is by one of my all time fav hair designers and I HAD to have it – its at Fameshed, is called Claudette , its made by Elikatira – sooper pretty!

All new Neve releases on sale now at the main-store . ! The Mix isn’t a location based event, but you can get a HUD that helps guide you around each and every designers store that’s participating, link below.

DOH!

Only 2 piccies but a lot of info.

I popped over to Mina’s to find out a bit more about a new event to me called MIX, but more about that at the end.  As I was there I noticed that she had changed her sim and there is a lovely misty tree-lined avenue so I had a pleasant time pulling poses and taking pictures only to find out this morning that my computer has filed them away somewhere I can’t find them! So I did a quick couple of poses and the reason for the quickness is not the Mina hair, that will be on special offer all month,but the top I’m wearing.

mina

I picked this top up from JLZ Fashion and it’s their Thursdays 55Ld offer.  Be careful not to buy the one from the full display as you will pay the full price, to get this one when you enter the shop go towards the right and on the wall at the bottom of the stairs is this discounted top.

Because we’re “dolls” when we show you a hair or a piece of clothing we chose everything else to fit to create a whole look and as you can see because of the Mina hair with that broad hair band and the top with its pastel flowers and string tie they all lend themselves to a Hippy style and so I chose this colour palette for my hair and make up.   So basically if you don’t like the colours I’ve chosen for this look this particular hair “Jacky” is not only on special offer of half price, 125ld, but you can choose from the whole colour range.  So you can choose blonde, brunette, reds, pastels and on and on and EVEN the extra specials such as the black.grey/whites and of course each pack comes with a selection of shades in that pack.  Mina often has special offers out but to have one where you can choose which ever colour you want is a bonus.  Also remember that although it’s not important in this style a LOT of Mina’s hairs come with the Bust sizing options which even if you’re not a big boobed girl still comes in very handy or making sure your hair lies on top of your clothing.

Just a close up  to show you the hair, skin, top etc and the jewelry.  As it happens I had managed to get over to the Flawless Sim and ran around the stalls grabbing the Lolly pops and I’d just unpacked these green gems so if you have some time to kill then I’d recommend you pop over and check out that sim for the Hot Summer Hunt & Cart Sale.

As for the MIX looks like some of the BIGGEST names in SL are in this and each shop is offering you a discounted items and to make it super easy you can either join the Mix group to get the Hud or grab the Hud off the Marketplace and I’m going to guess you wear the Hud and then TP to all of the shops taking place in this event and that’s exactly what I’m going to do once I get back inworld.
