Found it.(Freebies).

If you want short, cute, edgy and unisex hair then head to Dura.

What a difference a hair makes, same face, same skin, same clothing but I think the hair can change the way you and of course others see you.  I don’t know how many “Dura” hairs I have and I don’t know how many I will have once I’ve worked my way through them to see which are keepers and which need to be retired but this hair is a 2018 Group Gift and I don’t have a hair like this so it’s a keeper.  The other GG I picked up is a very good beanie hair, again perfect for both sexes.  There are 2 more GG’s one is a hairbase and the other is……can’t remember lol so it’s a “surprise” lol.  A nice little hud of the basic shades.

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!

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!

I dunno how she’s done it! (New Mina & (old?) New Freebie).

I’m sorry because I can’t be 100% sure I haven’t already shown you this free outfit from Foxes before but before I bin it I can’t resist showing it to you again.  The reason I will be binning it is that it’s a Maitreya fit only but not a bad fit at all!  I normally find that it’s at the belly/crotch area that the breakthrough is too bad for me to wear but with this top/bottom separates apart from a little breakthrough at the throat it’s a really good fit.  I edited the holes but if I was to be keeping it I would rummage in my invent for a cute bow, scarf, piece of jewely to hang at the neck to cover that up as the quality of the texturing is really good.

I know for sure that I’ve not shown you this pug bag though.

You get 2 styles of this bag plus a pugtastic doormat. The posing hold that comes with the bags isn’t “photogenic” so I dug this pose out of my invent.  Yes, I did, I rezzed it and at only 1 prim this lovely bag will also make a great room decor item.  I’m sure there was other gifts but I’ve forgotten them.

The LM takes you to the lovely sim this and other well know shops are on and not directly to the Foxy shop but all of the shops are well worth a visit and as I LMed grabbed I spotted the archway to the “Gacha Island” section…you have been warned!

I betcha spotted the hair as well?  I have no idea of how Faith got her curvy AV behind into the Fetish Fair because I certainly couldn’t but I also noticed a few other sims where down so I’m not sure if SL was having issues or it’s me with the issues (it all depends on who you ask, lol). So for the details about this hair I went to the trusty Seraphim blog and I will put the link to that as well so you can see the Mina colour packs as well as everything else for sale at this event.

The hair is called Audrie and is the now standard price for her really big colour packs.  You get 2 colour Huds which allow you to change both sides of the hair and in the top picture you can see that I’ve chosen the same shade so you can go for a very colourful dramatic look to a cute and normal one…who wants to be normal in SL?

As always I’ve put the link to Mina’s shop because she’s been a busy bee and there are 2 Pocket Gacha hairs at a super bargain price of 75Lds a try! and remember full-colour full colour pack not just 1 hair shade and these ones come with 4 choices of how you wear your fringe/bangs etc.  Then “Audrie” and another hair which I’ve not shown you yet but if you like plaits down to your bottom then you will love that one.  All of these new hairs have of course the demos so as always, try before you buy.
