Tag Archives: New Mina hair

 

Nooooooooo! She’s done it again.

I never got around to doing a post about the Mina hair I’ve been wearing over the past week but damn as soon as I saw this I ripped off that wig and slapped this beauty on. Mina has done it again and added that something extra which to me makes her hair something extra and in this case its hair that goes from wet to dry to wet to dry to wet etc and although you can’t see it in this picture when wet you even get drops of water running down the strands. The wet look lasts for 135 seconds. Or if you wanted it dried super quick just whip out the hairdryer thats included and 5 seconds late super dry and stylish hair. I don’t really know what else to say, not that ever stops me, but yet again Mina has just added something NEW to SL hair. Every time she brings out a new hair there just seems to be something extra, whether that’s a bigger colour hud or the options in the “options tab” which allows you to change the way you style it, material and non material versions so people who want to reduce any lag issues their computer may have can still wear a great hair but without any impact on how their computer runs and on and on and now this wet to dry or dry to wet just adds another dimension.… Read the rest

Whatta Find!(Freebie).

Excellent find by Faith, the top she found from B.D.R (Beautiful Dirty Rich) shop.  It looks so good I just knew that as soon as I logged in I had to get it but since I was butt naked I decided to check to see if there is a MP shop and if it’s there and YASSSS it’s also in their MP shop so if you can’t log into SL today you can still grab it from the MP shop. OK, I’ve got another “keeper” freebie for you but I also wanted an excuse to show you a bit more of the new Yelena hair and I can’t actually believe I did a whole post about this blinking hair yesterday and forgot to put the name into it!  Anyhow, in 2 of the pictures I’m wearing the fringeless version and in the picture below it’s the one with the strands and each hair is either a shade of Auburn from the brown pack or a shocking red from the reds. The pants are the freebies from a shop called Atik and excellent “keepers”. They come in so many sizes they will fit anyone, great texturing, and on and on and just so wearable! … Read the rest

Time to say goodbye.(Dollarbies & New Mina).

A whole bloddy sim and still not enough prims!  Actually, it’s the fault of all the amazing landscaping creators there are in SL because most of the prims seem to go on plants and trees and grass etc and even though they’re so low primmed it can sharp add up but dammit our sim is looking glorious but now we want a pool on our sim and so I’ve decided to sacrifice my studio. Truth be said I rarely used it in any case so it’s not much of a loss and I have a much lower prim idea as a replacement. I’m wiping away my tears with a couple of Dollarbies, from my fav shop Loordes of London.  In the area with lots of offers, “Steals and deals”&  “36Ld Saturday” etc are lots of hunt items ie an arrow, flowers, and each one cost a single Ld and contain a mix of things.  In this case, I bought the Cute and Curvy Hunt item which gave me the dress and the April Showers Hunt item which gave me these shoes. Obviously, there is more than these but if you just want these 2 prizes then click on the hunt item and it should tell you what hunt it was for and TBH at 1Ld for each prize just buy them all.… Read the rest

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. … Read the rest

More than you can see!(Free ‘n’ non free).

Trust me I know I’m lucky to get my Mina hair for free. But I don’t actually go and get all of the new releases and because I have so much leeway I can pick and choose and I chose this hair LOL. Let me just say the hair is not purple it just looks like it because I screwed up with the lights in this picture, lol! It’s one of the classic brown shades but you can have purple if you want or pink or orange or blue n pink etc all depends on which colour pack you buy lol.  Anyhow, as soon as I saw this one with that high plait it was “oooo” and sadly I do actually say that out loud in RL when I put on a super pair of shoes, dress or in this case hair. I know very little about this hair but since you must try the demo on for yourself before you decide if it suits you I will as always give you the LM to her, Mina Nakamura’s main shop and you can try it out before you TP to the event that is where you can buy the hair from  AND don’t forget there are 2 FREE Mina hairs so scroll back a couple of posts to my “Kawaii Freeness” one to get the details for those.… Read the rest

PPP=P*ss Poor Planning!(New Mina & a Dollarbie).

To save your sanity I will leave all my insane rambling till after I’ve shown you the goodies. This is a new hair from who else?  Mina’s of course.  As you can see with “Maddie” she’s kept the double hud colour option that is a new look to this and another recent hair, just scroll back a couple of post ago to see that one. I wasn’t going to use these pictures at first as they were just a test “ooo let’s see how they look” set of snaps but when I relooked at them I rather like the simplicity.  Anyhow this hair, if you click the options tab, also comes with 2 ways of wearing the fringe/bangs.  TBH I really don’t like how it looks without the softening effect of the fringe but that’s totally my preference and not the design.  As I’ve said you get the 2 huds, one for left and one for right and each comes in the colour pack you chose.  Love those big fat bunches and if you look closely you can see that she’s even used the hair texturing to cover up where a tie would have been used in RL to create this effect.… Read the rest

Quick off the mark, New Mina.(& Freebies).

I’ve been itching like an old dog with fleas to show you the New Mina I’ve mentioned previously and worn in my last post and now finally it’s TIME. Romy is such an elegant hair, swept back around the head and draped over your shoulder BUT the kicker is you actually can wear this hair in 4 separate ways, albeit subtle ways. You can wear it draped over either left or right shoulder or with and without a smaller drape of hair over the other shoulder. So in the top picture I have the hair draped over my right shoulder but in this bottom one it’s draped over my left shoulder and I’ve also chosen the option that adds that smaller drape over the other shoulder….yup clear as mud! But of course, I know you WILL try the demo first as it’s a golden rule to always try skin/hair before you buy no matter how good the designer is. If you own any of the newer Mina’s you will know by now that again not only do you get much bigger colour Hud palettes, with the addition of some colours which are unique to the Mina range, but a lot of her new hairs come with an “option tab” which allows you to change the hang of the hair but of course only when possible.… Read the rest

Cheekier than you think.(Freebies&SPAM).

Don’t I look the picture of innocence? Such a sweet and innocent little bathing suit? till your scroll down to my crotch area, yup that’s a little bead, in fact, it’s a small row of them which act as the crotch of this little outfit.  It would be interesting to wear this in a busy place and see how many people spot it LOL. So on the surface a sweet, simple little combo which can be worn as separates and comes in so many sizes there is a fit for you.  This and 5 other Freebies, but you have to join different but free groups to grab, is to be found in the ADRIS King shop. Still not going to tell you much about the hair but feel free to pop over to Mina’s and try the demo out, make sure to check the option tag as you get a number of ways to style this hair as well as the colours.  Or you can TP over to Kustom 9 which is the only place you can buy “Tina” at the moment and since I’ve shown her so much already and the event goes on till the 10th August I’ll do a reminder post near to the end.… Read the rest

Achoo! (Freebie&New Mina’s).

Breathe easy as this is a quickie because I am full of….Hayfever!  Although it feels like someone has shoved a nettle up my hooter and thrown pepper in my eyes and I’ve been sneezing so hard I’ve had “oopsie” moments it could be worse LOL.  So I’ve taken an Antihistamine, got some chilled water and a horror film lined up to watch so no sympathy needed. A very pretty and simple little dress from Lomomo. It’s very lacy and so pretty and although it only comes in the 2 mesh bod fits this will be easy to wear no matter what mesh bod or non-mesh bod you wear.  Free to join Group gift. I’m not going to blab on much about my New Mina hair because I think most of our readers will have read so many times why I love Mina’s hairs.  I will do another post about the 3 new hairs later but since they’re now out at (and yes I have forgotten where these are out and I can’t be bothered to log in again LOL) and at a discounted price I’ll just give you the LM’s so you can try them out as the Demo’s and LM are up in her shop.… Read the rest

My New BFF(A New Mina & Bargain).

Shelly is another New Mina hair and Mina Nakamura has taken some of the details off one of my other fav hairs and used it in this one.  The minute I tried this hair on I knew it is a perfect for the headdresses, flowers, tiara style hair and in fact when I went over to the Mina main shop to check out the demo and grab the LM  Mina herself has also used jewelry to accentuate this hair….so I was right lol.  Obviously, goes without saying it’s perfect without hair accessories as well. Although it’s not too clear in this picture the hair is held back by a super loose twist of hair. As always TRY the demo in Mina’s main shop, although when I went over to the Ultra event to LM grab it was nice and quiet we all know that can change in a heartbeat.  Plus on the wall with the New Hairs in the main shop there is about 3 or 4 of them now because Mina has been a busy bee. Plus I want you to try “Myrtle”and you can only find her in the main shop as this is the hair I adore and it has the same lovely tied back hair detail but a shorter version with a fringe/bangs.… Read the rest

Heads Up.

I finally managed to get over to the massive Food Fair charity raising event and I will put the link to Faiths post all about it the charity involved, the people involved etc READ IT! I was going to have a nice morning sauntering around  now that it’s finally calmed down but VANITY won and I ended up pulling some poses on one of the stage set ups at this event. I wasn’t even going to show you my New Mina but damn I look so good the RL me is as jealous as Hell! This New Mina hair is from the latest FaMESHed event,  Which I’m not even going to try to squeeze my freakishly skinny AV into(unless there are Freebies there, in that case, I will defy the lag and grab any goodies) and I will wait till it calms down. Because I wasn’t going to show you “Indy” I haven’t taken all the pictures of what’s special about her.  You can see on the back is a big fat juicy bun and lots of tendrils but when you open the Colour Hud and click the “options” tab you can actually wear it 3 ways, the one shown one with no fringe and a few tendrils and one without any fringe or tendrils but as always I’ve put the LM for Mina’s shop so you can try out the demo and remember to check out the new Group Gifts (not free to join).… Read the restxxxfooduse

Sim Fairy at work(New Mina & Freebie).

Faith has thawed our sim and so I’m flying around with my fairy wings and wand changing as much of the landscaping to a lovely spring setting as I can before I have to log off.  I’m also playing with the sim windlight setting and just took a quick snap of this one as it looks pretty interesting, unusable but interesting LOL. So I quickly grabbed this Free top and I swear hand on heart it’s still out, but this is the January gift so HAUL AV ASS! to the Eyelure shop. You get 2 tops in the same style, a knitted halter top.  The one in the above picture has “Stay Classy” on the front and in the next picture the top is a different colour and if you look closely you will see “Haters back Off” in the sunglasses.  Super sexy with shorts, jeans, bikini bottoms. I’m rather liking this sim setting as it’s certainly flattering to both the sim and me and has a fresh crisp spring feel to it. Now for the NEW Mina.  I’ve tried to show you this hair for a couple of days now but because of things out of my control I’ve not been able to so it’s the same hair as above but I’m showing you it in the Nams setting.… Read the restxxxfairyuse3

Save to SPEND! New Mina.

I’m having a surreal SL moment here. I won’t confess as to how long I’ve actually had this Mermaid house in my invent just waiting for the opportunity to use it but with this New Mina hair, I finally had an excuse. If you’re wondering the tail isn’t a Freebie either it’s an old Gacha win but the Gacha is still in the shop if you’re interested in it.  I’ll pop the link to that later when I get back inworld. Yup, that’s me dressed as a Mermaid fishing in a pond, you can just about make out the fishing rod if you squint, in the snow it can only happen in SL because in RL it would make your jaw drop in shock. This is the New Mina and she’s called Ava-Lin and you can only get it from the newest round of FaMESHed. Front n back pictures taken in my sim setting or nams I can’t remember now but a pretty natural setting. I think this is the longest hair Mina Nakamura has created, certainly in this very natural style that it.  … Read the restxxxmermaiduserela

Sweet sweet Harmony, New Mina and link to FREEBIE.

I’ve worked out my outfit for my Christmas cards LOL.  I changed the setting to Nams of course because the Mina hair is a paid for item but check out how good the sim looks and when I turn the Wind Light back on it will be even more stunning.  Remember our sim is open to all and if you want to pop over to take some piccies or just sit and chat you’re more than welcome. The whole sim is open to you but Faiths home, the house on the hill, will boot your AV ass out if you get too close whilst my home is open.  Don’t worry you don’t have to be sociable as usually when inworld Faith is on her working platform and I’m on mine and were usually so engrossed with what were doing we don’t even notice anyone. OK here is the honest bit, when I read that “Harmony” is a French Braid design I almost didn’t bother trying it on.  I do not like that “fishtail” style it’s just ugly who wants their hair to look like a blinking lobster/prawn tail!… Read the restxxxsnowuse

Gizem ALL (New Mina and a Bargain).

I’m slightly hyperventilating here because Mina has changed her hair colour packaging and sadly price but then again some things are worth paying for and mesh hair is definitely one of those things, so the price may have gone up to 300 for the basic shades, 350 for the special packs but that’s still not an unreasonable amount and add to that the fact that she’s giving it back to us in spadefuls, because now each colour pack comes with not just 5 shades but 10!! We’re not talking about 10 shades which are so similar you can hardly tell the difference, you’re getting 10 distinctive shades. You’re really going to have to go to the Mina Mainshop and try on the demos to be able to see the colour palettes for yourself and since Hairology is PACKED at the moment you may just want to wait and since it goes on until the 30th even I will be able to finally treat myself because by then my enforced frugality will be over. OK finally back to the hair, Gizem a lovely draped around the face with flattering tendrils and of course that amazing thick plait!… Read the restxxxhouseuse

Drat! (New Mina, Freebies & Whole Load of GG’s).

As soon as I think we have done it and our sim is looking at it’s Autumnal best I come across a shopping sim that is just how I think our sim should look in Winter.  So being an opportunist I took advantage of this cool blue sim to pull a few poses and snap away. OK, first the outfit which is a stunning freebie from the AnaMarkova shop.  The AnaMarkova group isn’t free to join but more about that later, however there are 2 gifties out for the SL Free’s & offers group and this edgy outfit is one of them. Comes in all the fitmesh and most mesh bod sizes woo hoo.  Shop quality and you all know what I mean when I say that. Oops I’ve just remembered there is another Freebie out for the SL frees & offers group but I can’t remember what it but of course you can have a nice surprise if you get this and the other one before I do my next post. OK confession time, I wasn’t going to show you this Mina hair because I just didn’t know what I thought of it.  … Read the restxxxanause

Untouched! (Inc a Freebie).

Not a complete free post but OMG I’ve just been checking out the “The Upcyclers Hunt” and I’m going to have a lazy RL day in SL and go shopping for what looks like some seriously Free and quality home decor items and all of that will be in my next post until then spend some Lindens B*tches! A bit of a mix here because why not.  Firstly I put on an OLD PumeC Group Gift called Nicole she comes as standard with all the Appliers you will ever need inc I believe some mesh head ones.  As said this is an old gift but I just wanted to show you another shade that PumeC has in their range because I usually stick to the paler Winter/Spring shades but there are also amazing sun kissed to much darker shades.  On a close up you will see that she has gentle tears falling unlike the real me. As for what Group Gifts that may be out at this moment I do not have a clue! When I went over to LM grab yesterday the place was packed with people joining the PumeC group whilst it’s FREE so I’ll leave that for you to find if you go over yourself.… Read the restxxxmeuse

Woo Hoo Summer is here…wait! WHAT! (Freebie).

Honestly, it’s GLORIOUS outside so sunny and warm and soon I will be heading out to do some chores but also to saunter and just enjoy this balmy day so lucky you lot you get a fast n quickie…ooeerr. The freebie is the cardie/top combo from Indyra There are actually 2 gifts this and a super chunky orange necklace and I recommend you grab the necklace as well because it’s a real stand out piece and the only reason I’m not wearing it is because I didn’t want to distract you from checking out the New Mina hair. I wore this hair in my previous post but I wanted to show it off a bit better, I also changed the shade to a light brown.  Zoom in on the lovely little-curled tips, it’s details like that which really makes Mina stand out.  This hair is called Wynona and it’s only available at the latest round of Hairology. As always I’ll put the link to Mina’s As always I’ll put the link to Mina’s main shop but fortunately for us lag haters although Hairology is a very popular event it’s usually calm enough to be able to call in at any time.  … Read the restxxxminarentfilm

Everyone’s gone to the Arcade (New Mina & Freebie)

Because everyone’s gone to the arcade event it means FaMESHed has finally calmed down enough to be able to move.  If you remember my last post there was some Gifts set out and also the loaf of bread on the Apple Fall stand waiting to be grabbed but what I really went for was the New Mina hair called Valerie and her she is. She’s a bit hidden behind my book but I just wanted to show you the Free outfit first.  It came from Gizza and I thought that I’d shown you EVERY free Group Gift from here but I can’t ever remember showing you this.  I actually slob around my home in linen style slacks like these as they’re so much nice than joggies, but mine are chocolate brown not this dusky pink.  The top is also inc in this freebie.  A very nice, simple and relaxed outfit but if this doesn’t tickle your fancy there is a really BIG collection of Freebies set outside just at the LM for Gizza.  Outfits for both men and women, mesh and non-mesh.… Read the restXXXmina1

I’m sorry.(Freebie and NEW Mina).

Blimey I’ve been so busy and I still have so much to do it doesn’t how many “to do” lists I make it doesn’t make the “to doing” any bloddy easier or quicker but I just needed a break from RL and I have not just a great new Mina hair and a new freebie from a shop new to me to show you. First the Mina, this hair is called Therese and it’s a Gacha win which means that you can get the exact same quality hair pack  but instead of full price it’s only 100Lds a try but of course you have to take pot luck on the hair colour.  However, since each colour pack comes with 5 shades as standard plus this hair comes with a 6 colour Hud for the hair band plus I’ve never found a Mina hair colour I didn’t like.  The bit I was trying to show you a close up of is how the hair drapes around your ear in such a natural and cute way and I’ve failed but when or if you try the demo out make sure to zoom in on that cuteness. For the moment this hair is only at the Whimsical Gacha event but although I’ve not checked yet I know that Mina tries to get the Demos out in her main shop for you to try them on because some of these events are packed for ages and so I will put the LM down for her shop so you can try it out in lag free heaven and even use the TP from her shop to the event if you want.… Read the restXXXMinaus
