Numpty.(Discounted Mina Hair).

I saw this hair on the New Boards in the Mina main shop but I was confused as I remember blogging this hair but I didn’t really give it too much thought until I got spendy at an event called Flourish and found this hair on one of the stalls there.

A fantastic offer because this hair, Karen, is only 99Ld but you’re still getting the full-colour pack of your choice and a style hud which allows you to change which side your hair hangs.

Hair like this is fab for taking pictures but if it’s a bit too windy for you then I know Mina has a few other hairs which have a much more subtle windswept look to them so as always LM to her main shop.

BTW The flourish event has now calmed down, phew, which is lucky as I did pick up a couple of 99Ld bargains.  It’s also a really nice sized event in that there is enough of everything, shoes, decor, hair but not so much you give in and TP home lol.

FINALLY IT’S STARTING!

I’m finally starting to get less Grinchy and more Christmassy and 3 things have helped. The first is I can finally decorate my SL house with lots of sparkly stuff, the second is !g0 has started it’s Christmas Advent Calendar. this is one of the best Advent Calendars events in SL and I try not to miss a single day as sadly once the day has passed the gift is sealed up and you can’t get them retrospectively…unless it’s changed since last year.  It does cost to join the !g0 group but that has always been a piddling 50Lds and you do need to be in the group to grab each daily gift.  I’ve not opened it yet but I did spot it comes in ALL mesh fits so no probs there.

The third and bestest thing is my NEW MINA and not just a new “do” but a NEW BEANIE MINA!

There is so much to this hair I ended up taking so many pictures even I got confused so I will stick to this basic one and try to explain it.

You get 3 Huds in your pack, 1 to change the hair colour, 1 to change the beanie and the last 1 to change the styling of the hair.

Just pick the shade pack you like best, and remember you get a massive 30 and totally different shades in each pack and were not just talking going from light to dark brown but just browns in all the shades you get in RL.  I did also notice that the red pack seems to some very new and unique shades which I certainly haven’t noticed before. Lots of other shade packs if you want a bit more to your hair colour, pastels, ombres, black/white etc some are very dramatic.

The Beanie hud has 10 textures in it and although I’m wearing one of the snowflake texture there are some without but its subtle enough that this can be worn any season.

Finally the “styling hud”.  This gives you 6 ways to style your hair. Hair down one shoulder or the other shoulder or both shoulders or neither shoulder and just hanging down the back but there are 2 new way.  This hair comes with a light windblown look to it and you can have it only lightly blown away from the face or a bit stronger.

That’s, why you need to try so you too, can see what it looks like on you before you make your mind up, believe it or not before I pick up a new Mina I too always try on a demo.  It’s rare but no hair will fit every AV.

BTW This hair is only available at “FaMESHed” but expect it to be heaving AND if you do go to Mina’s mainshop don’t panic as she doesn’t have the picture up yet but click on the “new” boards and you can still get the demo, she will probably have the picture uploaded to the board pretty soon as she does keep on top of her new products.

Mina doesn’t do an Advent Calendar but for her joining fee of 250Lds even Faith got tempted by her last Group Gift so check those out and if you are in the Mina group already just remember to wear your tag when buying as you do get a discount.

Save to spend.(New Mina).

As someone who takes pictures all the time, I LOVE hair and clothes that have a windblown look to them.

The hair, not the hat, is called Karen and this is one of the more dramatic windswept hair’s so not everyone will find it a wearable look for them, unless they too love to take pictures and in that case you will love this hair even more.  It won’t surprise you when I say that you need to check out her main shop not only because this is where you buy this hair but Mina also has a really lovely range of hairs that have a windswept look to them, some are very subtle ie a few strands across the face and one where it looks like you’ve stuck your finger in a socket so shop around first.

You will see the stand this hair is on is for something called “FaMESHed Go” which is relatively newish.  Buy this hair the same way as normal but if you want to check out the other brand new designs then grab the hud and you can scroll through their offers and using the Hud TP to the shop.

PS.  This hair cost only 300Lds and you get a massive 30 shades in each colour pack hud AND a styling hud which in this case will change the way your hair is flowing.

YumYum, I have no shame!(Freebies).

Both of the hairs I’m going to show you have been blogged before but I really don’t care because they’re just ADORABLE and of course FREE.

(DP)Yumyum has a range of young and light wispy hair which is pretty unique and it’s one of the shops I actually spend Lindens in, which is why I try not to visit it often LOL.

This hair comes with 3 textures, the basic light brown/blonde but if you look closely you will see the ends have some pretty tips to them and you get 3 different shades.

This is another Freebie but I remember that at the time I picked it up from a massive event where a lot of the shops had stalls/satellite shops and virtually all of them had a gift in them and this was one of them so if you missed getting it from that event then it’s now in the shop.

The full name of the shop is (DP) Yumyum and the “DP” stands for “Double Paradox” just in case you think you’ve joined the wrong group but the group invite is just there.

Once you’ve snagged the goodies then take a walk because this shop and the others that share the sim are on a beautifully landscaped sim.  It’s just a real pleasure to walk around.

The Dream.(Freebie & a Mina).

Just a fun summery piccie here because in RL I’m freezing my T*Ts off.

First, the freebie and again reg readers will know by now if it’s sporty clothing I snag it.  I don’t know how many sets of shorts n tops I have but I don’t care so there.  This freebie and there was at least 2 other, this is the one I preferred, are to be found at the Bliss shop.  The Bliss group is VIP but still free and so are the other 2 groups you have to join to get the other  2 free outfits.  Going by memory lots of sizes and with the 2 outfits, I opened both came with Huds and in this case I decided I rather liked the shorts not matching the top but you can choose your own preference.

It was the hair that got me back in-world because as soon as I saw a picture of it I just had to have it even though my SLing time was up.

This hair is extremely reminiscent of a very recent hair but Mina has given it that windswept look to it.  As someone who is trying to get a bit of movement or life into her pictures I love clothes and hair which have that extra bit of folding or suggestion of movement to them but even though this hair has all that it’s still totally wearable as just normal mooching around in SL hair.

The hair comes from the Shiny Shabby event and I have to be honest it’s not the best place for freebies but then again it’s been so long since I was last there you never know and since it’s on till the 15th it should have calmed down so I might just amble on over there.

JOIN THIS!

OK if you have 50Lds you must join the !g0 Group NOW before the place becomes a heaving cesspit of grasping, greedy AV’s and Moi tomorrow.

Gocha Merlin, the owner of !gO not only has a damned fine and unique clothing range, it’s where I often chose to spend my Lindens, the group gifts are monthly and there is often also a new outfit with a colour which has been reduced for just the group members it along with Sn@tch are the 2 groups I have been a member of for an SL lifetime.  What Gocha Merlin also has is one of the BEST advent calenders going in SL and because this is a clothes shop it means CLOTHES in the unique !gO style.  Because as with most calendars only 1 box a day is opened but sadly for those who can’t get in-world once the day is over you can’t get it anymore.  So you really need to try to pop over every day to make sure you don’t miss out.

PS. Now I can’t remember if it’s now gone from a 24 day Calendar to a 12 day one but it does no harm to join now, go grab the GG and get yourself ready for the rampaging horde.

Mittens (Freebie)

blonde Just lately I’ve been so spoiled with not only cheap, brilliant skins but all those extras which make them so great ie Appliers but the reason I’m wearing the cute gloves is because these 2 free skins, a pale and tanned version,  don’t come with any appliers.  That doesn’t distract from great skins though and they do come a flat, cleavage and XL cleavage tattoo boob layers. Surprisingly the Amachi group is free to join so slap and join and you can get the skins from either the board or through the group history.

Not just showing off my bum but the lovely big hair from Mina and how the ends have a lovely curl flick to them.

nip

The first hair is called Roos and is offered at a 25% discount BUT this wild and windy hair,  Roosje, is Mina Nakamura’s gift for the Enchantment Sleeping Beauty fun thingy!

The reason I called it a “thingy” is that they have changed the ways the Enchantment event is being run.  Instead of having everything with a fairy tale theme for sale  in one place, each shop now has a special themed and discounted item in their actual shop.  If you love it then buy it and in the pack you will get a stamp card wear this card and check out all the special items in the other shops.  You don’t have to buy if you don’t want to but just make sure you get your stamp card stamped.  Then when you have a certain amount of stamps you go to a special place and select which one of special items  you want. In this case it’s this wild and curly hair. Mina says in her note that this is a one off never to be sold in her shop so damn I’m so chuffed that I have this now.

Check out the Enchantment blog to see not only how easy it actually is to do but there is also pictures of the big prizes and that black dress is going to be MINE! (once I’ve filled my card).

Boom.

I always love getting sent gifties off Boom, Mysteria or even Piddle because I know that it’s gonna be good.  So I tried on the shorts and shirt, oo’d over the bag and then put it all away.  Since I’ve got so much left on my Boom Credit I decided it’s time to haul ass and see whats new and this is my “goto” winter outfit.

Boom useI have an almost identical pair of those trousers in RL (although not as flared!) and although I don’t walk around with my navel so exposed I know that with a woolie or in this case a jacket they can look so great not only in SL but RL.  The trousers are called “Norfolk Tweeds” and there is a complete range of colours from winter/autumnal colours to pastels and creams.  All of course come as demos and even fat packs.  The jacket  is whats got me because it comes from the Cartel Collection which I wasn’t sure if it was a boom design or if I could use my store credit and happily I could.  I just knew that this zingy orange coat (full name is Chinese Short Coat in Firework) would look stunning with the trousers or even just jeans.  Such an unique look that stands out from the crown.  A total of 4 colours in this style of jacket but there are other jackets in a similar vein with more colour options.  This is a strange one because “one size fits all” and as far as I can tell that’s exactly the case.

Now look closely at the hair. Faith managed to blog the previous Mina hair before me so as soon as I got this I sent her a note which said something along the lines of “back off the Mina hair Biatch”.  Mina isn’t of course the only hair I love in SL but what I love most about her hairs is the colouring.  She does everything from the more sedate blondes to the extreme gingers and all the colours in between. Her hair is like a great RL hair dye job in that there are so many colours blended together to make the overall colour.  This one is called Josje  and I’ve used a different shade in each picture but please be brave and try out ALL of the colours before you make your choice because you maybe suprised at how good some of the colours you normally wouldn’t have looked at previously can look.

PS don’t forget to check out the upstairs there is a particularly lovely windy hair and hat up there which I am buying right now.
