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!

Neve are at the latest round of TLC yippeee! Up for grabs is the brand-spankin new “undone” shirt and “Nashville” skirt – they come in a ton of options, each pack giving endless choices! I chose the plaid shirt (yes, I’m so traditional) and the soft pink denim. Now the clever thing is you can change a lot of the trimmings – such as the belt, the lace that edges the skirt hemline etc. I was totally flummoxed on the skirt, as I realllllly loved the lacey covered ones too! Shirt comes in plaids,plains and pastels – something for everyone ❤ Newwww hair alert! This is “Asago” from Argrace – saw it in the notice,didn’t try the demo,BOOM bought! You know how it is with some stores like Neve & Argrace? Something new – it’s a given it will fit and you will love it – tadah! (btw I am not advocating not to try demo’s!) Thanks Neve team!

Never give up (Freebie & New Mina Hair).

Just as I was about to give up, log out and go do something else I came across this quality Freebie jacket from Virtual Diva and it was a case of “YESS finally”.

XXXJacketintrep

I think a brilliant and very stylish find.  You get all the standard mesh sizes and also a Fitmesh version.  As soon as I put this on I knew that this old freebie find I still had would be perfect with it but it and it also shows that if you pick the right sizes then you can layer it even with other mesh clothes.  I have to confess that by the time I found this jacket my SL time was running out, I have RL work to do which is always a pain in the ass lol, but I quickly scanned the shop and then just as quickly logged out as all I could see was POSES and the last thing I need is more poses so I can’t tell you much about the Virtual diva shop at this moment other than you got to pop in grab this GG and if you need some poses then you may want to loiter…..OH Wait I did notice I’m pretty sure that if you also wear your group tag you get a discount on the poses so you may want to remember that or check it out when over there.

Yes more Mina hair but Mina Nakamura is a lady who has managed to find not only a niche she can fill and one that provides her and hers a living but also allows her creativity to flow but to make sure everyone knows her name she pulls out all the stops to bring out so many new designs and have a precence in so many of SL events.  That means that to get this particular hair, Luisa, you will have to go to The Seasons Story but don’t panic as although this is a very popular event it’s on till the end of the month so plenty of time to let the crush die down and you can enjoy all the offers and new items that are there.

I like to keep my poses very simple so you can see the clothes clearly and I love this pose and the camera angle because it shows how the Mina hair is formed and shaped.

OK I’ve just got about time to LM grab and then grab a quick-lunch before I have to get some RL work done.

PS Thanks for helping me clear my yardsale freebies out, I’ve spotted that people are buying but for some reason not taking the items, chances are they probably don’t know that they have actually bought them but in anycase this morning as soon as I logged in I sent all the bought items on to the buyers and I’m hoping tonight to get the yardsale restocked and I’ll let you know when it is.
