And We'll Never Be Royals


So I loooooove this song, Royals, like.. the more I listen to it, the more listen to it, the more I obsess with it, and throughout my hospital stay, that's literally all I could play in my phone. I think I made my husband sick. Soz. Not soz, really. 

Anyways, I went to Collab, and that's all I could think when I saw the amazing stuff that the designers did this round. Can we please talk about the lightbulbs that Tegan Serin did from floorplan? I'm dying a little, and you can change them to any metal you want. Bronze, gold, silver, platinum, and charcoal. The textures are lovely, whenyou turn them on they don't look like a hot glow mess, and they're just fabulous. Then you have Trompe, and I adore these chairs, and the chandelier.. urgh. It's so classy, but not royal, it's just my style. The cat though, that's Sway's release for FLF, so.. make sure to grab it today while you can, so adorable, and unique, it's a cute must have piece. The rug is from Lark, and well, the scene just needed a cute rug to pull the look together, I think. 

For clothing, I did all from Collab, the shoes are, and they're adorable, point heels, and with a cute little emblem on the side, can't really see it, but it's adorable, and works with Slink feet. The skirt is from Tres Blah, it has a minor problem with the rigging though, so when you sit, the studs, and the skirt sometimes go different ways, I noticed, it's a little on the annoying side, but for standing, it's the most adorable skirt ever. And the top is also from Tres Blah, and it's just soooo cute, I can't live without it. The necklace is new from Yummy, and seriously, they never cease to amaze me, it's so elegantly understated that it's just hte perfect piece to pull off the theme. New hair by Bubbles Clawtooth too. I adoooore Clawtooth hair, possibly because I'm a little obsessed with Bubbles and how fabulous he is, but.. also because the textures are always more.. I don't even know how to call it, it's got more of the indie vibe that I love in my styles, and for some reason I'm digging weird colors lately, so I stuck with the Princess Bubblegum color, but.. yeah, I adore this hair style! 

So, that's my Royals inspired style, mostly from this Collabor88 round! Make sure to get it all because.. this round is truly amazing!

Monday Meme- Who does your AV look like in RL?

Monday Meme

So this meme actually started in plurk, and then it made its way into Berry's weekly meme, and well, I kind of had to do it, because.. I feel like it's been forever since I've blogged between being sick all the freaking time and work. So.. I made a quick nude picture.. that you're only seeing the top cuz :> Enough sexy for a bit, right? Right. So.. yeah, there it is. All cute! 

When I made the shape for this av, my inspiration was actually Coco Rocha I seriously love that girl! In beauty, she's flawless, I adore the fact that she has dark hair and light eyebrows, and them eyes! Urgh, she's just flawless, and the features she has are gorgeous, and personailty wise.. she really is something, she's not afraid to be herself weird, funny, awkward, and she is not afraid to have a personality behind her picture. Out of all the models out there, she's got to be my favorite one, so of course there's certain elements of hers that I transfered into my avatar. For starters, the eyes, and the shape for the most part remains always the same. I did add freckles though, because.. well, I have a love affair with freckles. 

So.. yup, that's my inspiration for my avatar.. as far as who that website says I look like.. I'm afraid, last picture I tried with said that I looked like Al Gore, George W Bush, and freaking John McCain. Scary. And... I had a reason to be afraid... Denzel Washington? Really? Like.. :/ Looks like I had a reason to be scared. Make sure to.. have your laughs using that generator, it's just ridiculous. 

Release wise.. there's not much.. the nails are cute, I rarely blog nails because the detail gets lost, but.. A:S:S (yup, I giggle at the name too) Has some amazing black nails that also work well for guy av's.. if you're into nail art. Amala has this cute little set (jewelry) That's just.. simple but amazing, the detail job on it and the textures are flawless, love it. And.. that's it? Yup! Have a good week guys!

Breath Me

Breath Me

There are moments in life where we hit a low. Where we're vulnerable, and there's nothing you can do but to cry out, try to breath. You feel naked, but at the same time, restrained. Small. Afraid. Alone. There are no words, there's just that feeling of unbelievable pain as we lose ourselves. And no matter how much we try, we can't find ourselves. We're broken. Lost. Unsafe. Afraid. 

Kind of been feeling that way for the last couple weeks. It's been rough, and thus, I've submerged myself in work, and health issues, my own. Not others. I've deserted a lot of people that I shouldn't have, and.. now the guilt is starting to wash over me. 

Now I'm not saying all this for a pity party, just because it feels like I have to let it out, somehow, before it breaks me, it's so much to contain that I feel like my heart is about to pump through my chest any time soon. I can't do this. I'm holding my breath and trying to hold out, to ride the wave, but.. I can't. Not anymore. 

I guess if there's something that others can take from this is.. don't wait until the last moments to tell someone you love them, or to do something you have the need to do. Just go for it. And ifyou feel like screaming.. I guess you should do so as well. I don't know, my brain is scattered, I haven't slept in two days, and it's starting to get to me, and.. I feel like I'm reaching out, and grasping air instead of.. whatever it is that I'm trying to find. I'm naked, and chained. And not in the good way. I'm afraid.

I've Got Friends On The Other Side

I needed to do a quick lotd pretty much because I've been wearing this outfit for two days I I freaking love it, but I couldn't take it off without like.. putting something out there for it cus.. I freaking love it. It's based on one of my favorite Disney characters, probably my second favorite after Maleficent, just because I completely love his song, and I totally love how it came out, the look I mean, the pic was a quickie, so forgive the lack of detailing on it, but.. Collab this round is totally amazing and.. BOOM totaly inspired me with the little top hat. I actually talked to her, turns out I got the inspiration right! And it isnpired a whole Dr. Facilier look. I wanted to do more, but I'm kinda working, and well.. yeah.. this is cute. You guys should dress up like Dr. Facilier, and sing his song all the time like me. Sound like a plan? Yes? Yes?? OKAY. Do it. I'm going to just go to the credits cus I'm uber busy with the fair stuff, and with making stuff, and trying not to be sick and die. Okay? Kay. Kay? Cool.

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

Wow, I can't believe I've actually survived last week. Been insane! Little sleep, hard work, doctors, medicines, and working. Oh, and did I mention pulling almost 34 hours straight of just pure work for Wizarding Fair? It was so much hard work, but so worth it, I'm so incredibly thankful to have been around so many great creators like the ones that are in Wizarding Fair. Just.. awesome. If you haven't gone, btw, you really need to. The build is amazing, and there's house elves. Yeah. House elves and flying books. Need I say more?

In Retrospective

In Retrospective

Pardon the half way done picture. But.. well..... long week, and I wanted to share my thoughts and feelings.

It's been an insane week! If you would have told me last month that all of this was going to happen, I wouldn't have believed it. Hell, I still kind of don't. It's been surreal, making things, actually selling, seeing bloggers whose work I enjoy actually blogging and enjoying my things. There's been tears, and a lot of happiness. And to believe that a month ago I couldn't build if I didn't follow a tutorial. Not to say I don't look things up still or ask for help, but.. the growth this week alone has been huge. I owe a lot of people for that, and I also have to thank Inka for giving me the chance to go in this journey with her.

With Candy Fair over, and starting out with Wizarding Fair tomorrow at noon, and nothing else to build, I have to breath. It's been a madhouse trying to learn all of this, dealing with my health issues, actually being hospitalized for a good portion of this time, and then.. culminating on this. Just.Wow. I can't believe I even got the honor to be a part of FLF this week. Can you talk about lucky?! So, I guess I have to say thank you to the few close friends that helped me out through this, Inka, Sienia, Aime, Tyr, Allegory, all of you for helping me when I wanted to tear my hair out and run away and quick, those friends that were genuinely supportive and helped me out along the way to keep my spirit. MJ and Rose, and everyone at the Wizarding Fair for allowing me to participate. I just.. I'm overjoyed. All of the wonderful bloggers. I mean, I got blogged by Berry! I was speechless, I still can't really believe it. Most of you have been amazing to me, and I greatly appreciate it.

I put a look together really quick with stuff from Wizarding Fair to show you guys, some of my faves, I'm sure now that things slowed down I'll be able to showcase a little more, God willing. I'm wearing my necklace, sue me, I'm proud, my sweat, blood,and tears went into that texture work, and many hours, I'm very happy with it, the skin is new from Essences, available at Wizarding Fair, and it comes with different breast options, so it'll be kid friendly, top from Peqe cus.. well, I love Peqe. All of these will be available tomorrow at noon, so don't forget to come and check out the fair, it'll be worth it, promise!

I'm Back in the Saddle again (ish?)

I'm back in the saddle again (ish?)

Woah it feels like forever since I've done this. Between starting to design, and health issues, it has been weeks! Month? I'm sorry! I haven't forgotten all of you, just.. life has some really strange loops on it at times. I had to get surgery, I need another surgery, and now I'm designing! I'm actually in Candy Fair and Wizarding Fair, AND FLF this week. Can you talk about stress? But I've missed blogging so much that I had to come back for a ninja attack. Hayyy-ya!

So, Candy Fair starts like.. tomorrow, and there's two things that I'm absolutely in love with accessories wise. Atooly made a head band, and I mean.. come on.. we all know I'm kind of obsessed with head bands, and it has candy on it.. like.. yeah, I'm on that. Then, I had the pleasure to meet Tea Soup, her booth is next to mine and Inka's! And she's like.. the sweetest girl ever! I absolutely love her necklace and bracelet for the fair, and just.. adore. Fameshed opened a couple days ago.. obssesed with this shirt by Cracked Mirror, like.. love, the under top is semi sheer, and the sweater on it, just... like.. completely love, and the hair by wasabi pills, with a headband.. like.. yeah, I'm done, I can't with all the cute at fameshed this round. 

Now, Wizarding Fair opens this Sunday, and I'm still making crap for it, so forgive me for this crappy post, but, I did make this watch, it's a pocket watch, it has initials on it, and then it has one for each house with teh metal and gem for the house, the loyal, the ambitious, the brave, and the wise. But this is my favorite. It's modeled after a snitch, and it's got "I open at the close" engraved on it, both in silver/gold and gold/gold version. There will be two machines, each 25L. And don't forget to stay tuned for more Wizarding Fair goodies, it'll be absolutely amazing, I know Anya and Sienia from Lark are making a house elf, and I won't lie, I'm kind of crappying my pants about it!

Welcoming Fall- Preview of a Couple Season Story Things!

Welcoming Fall- Seasons Story Welcoming Fall- Seasons Story

So I know a lot of people are getting a little event-ed out, meaning there are so many events in SL that it's almost like it's pointless to go to the main store, just because designers get into so many events that they forget to do releases for their store. I feel you, I feel like that a lot of the times, however, I do still love a good event because it lets me see the creativity of designers, along with discovering new places and stores that other wise I probably wouldn't have known about. So, that brings me to this new event named Seasons Story. It's amazing cute, and I just adore it, it's got a lot of the bigger Japanese/Asian brands, but still has some main stream stores like Floor Plan and Wasabi Pills in it! I just love everything about this, the set up, the idea, the items, the quality, and the feel to this event, so... well done, it's a home run in my opinion. 

I decided to do two different looks just because there's so much I want to show you guys, and I wanted to start today, I originally wanted to do more looks for this post, but I'm going to have to divide it, too many amazing things to go through. I have to say that also the pose makers did a fabulous job this event, it gave me so much inspiration for pictures, so.. to everyone in this event, thank you, you've given me so much to work with that I'm actually overwhelmed by inspiration! Now on to the looks and the slurl so you can go and check out this amazing new event because.. trust me,you really don't want to miss out on all this fabulousness!

I Used to be a Fashionista Like You...

Arrow to the Knee

Another Monday is upon us, and another meme by Berry. Now.. personally, I like those that force us to be creative, and this week did just that.. welp. We had to make a meme, into a meme, for a meme post.. if that even makes sense? Memeception, basically. I thought for a while, and just.. poses make it difficult, and face in Sl, because.. let's face it, the little facial expression thing for SL basic shape sucks, and I'm not rich so I can't and won't buy a mesh head. I'd buy a sim before I do that. But anyways! I started to talk to people, and then I felt sad face, I was like.. if only I were a true fashionista like Berry, this wouldn't be an issue. Welp. Why not arrow to the knee meme? Score. And it's early enough that I can do this and be the original one that came up with it. I'm going to glare at someone if they did this too! But anways, there it is, my meme!

I am so in love with this Collab round guys! Fall! Fall stuff, I so so so love it. Secre store scallop sweater is to die for, I actually fat packed this and I rarely fat pack, and this cute little leather skirt from Tres Blah, just.. how adorbs is it?! I love it. I thought together they actually made a perfect ensamble, because truth be told, I didn't care much for the top that Tres Blah made this round.. I know.. shocker, it's one of the first things that she made that I didn't completely love. I paired off the look with shoes from, just because.. the whole new shoe like Darling Monday is doing is just.. well.. darling, and I adore the fact that I can do the mesh feet with it and never have to take them off. And hair from Truth. Guys.. he's doing the whole pack of normals now, it's a little on the steep side, but.. I think more designers should get on this band wagon! I love having options for hair color and not having to buy in the future and rebuild my hair folder. Best.Idea.Ever.

Down By The Water

So Collab just opened, and this round left me.. well.. in shock! First off.. league is in there.. like.. can we all squeal, even if it's just a little bit? I didn't expect that one, huge shocker for me, and I couldn't be happier! That is just too awesome. They have this amazing little sweater dress with a color changing HUD belt thing that is jsut to die for.. like.. a fall must have, and Milk Motion? This over the top cape with the little hat/beanie/whatever the heck you want to call it. Yeah. Adore. But what really shocked me was that Belleza was there. Now, now.. don't be hating on me, but.. well.. how to put this and not make it sound bad because I'm half asleep? This round actually had a lot of new designers in it, that I really didn't expect, but with that they took away some of my favorite ones, and left some that I'm still scratching my head as to the reason why they're there, (Then again, personal taste has a lot to do with it I suppose) But.. all  of that aside, I was just rather shocked to see Belleza there, and pleasantly so when I saw this cute little skin there for only  188L.

Now, I'm THE pickiest person when it comes to skins, Birdy? I find it lacks definition in the skin, and sometimes it's got a weird shade to it, I don't even know how to explain it. Glam Affair? Too soft for my taste, and I find that a lot of her skins look the same, even though she's one of my favorite skin makers. Sue me, I have never been a huge Pink Fuel fan. And Skinnery? Nope. The Store? I actually don't know what people find so fascinating about this skin, and Lelutka? Love the hairs, their skins look weird to me around the bewbies. So.. yeah... Tell me a store, I can point out the flaws in their skins, there are few skins that have been a total hit with me, some are from Essences, no doubt, some from Glam Affair, and some from League. But... this?

I tried it on because SL kept eating my money, and I drooled a little, Shyla, you have outdone yourself with this skin, simple, soft and adorable. My one complain? Your HUD for the hands. I got a little frustrated at having to try to find which hand applier fit to it, but other than that, this is flawless. Love.

Cold Water- In Memory of Squinternet Larnia

Cold Water- In Memory of Squinternet Larnia

It's funny how sometimes a single event, unexpectedly, changes everything in our lives. For a second. For an hour. For a day. For a lifetime. 

I was sitting in the platform, working, with Inka, and getting frustrated about such a worthless thing that had such an easy solution, when suddenly she tells me that Donna Flora passed. There was silence. I knew about Squinternet's struggles with cancer. I believe we all did in a way or another, but hearing that she passed... It was unexpected. So quick, so soon. There was silence. I had no words, nothing. Fear set in, and suddenly, everything was meaningless. As I sat in the doctor's office today, I thought long and hard about her, about her fight, and her journey, and it weighed heavy on me, perhaps heavier than a lot of people. Another reminder in my life that we lose focus of what is important, what really is worth fighting for. Maya struggles are so tiny when I see the road ahead, the road that lies in front of us all, regardless of being ill or not. It saddened me to think that last time our community lost a member, I bowed to make a change. However.. how many of us has kept that promise? I have failed. I feel defeated. 

Squinternet Larnia will surely be missed. She was an amazing designer, and had a fight that many of us will never understand, and I admire her strength. I hope that I'm able to have that same strength, because.. well.. I'm going to need it, and if every one of us could have just one ounce of her strength and courage.. well.. I wonder how far we would all be in life. 

I do think that I need another vow, and I do ask all of you that are close to me to help me keep this one. I vow to fight just like she did. To have the drive to live that she did, and that if I go, no one will ever say that I gave up. Let us all do this, fight for life, in her memory, and in her honor. 

Today is a very sad day for us all in SL, but for me, Squinternet's strength and generosity will live for a long time. Not only in my heart, but in my inventory with her beautiful and amazing creations. Donna Flora will be missed, and so will the amazing creature behind one of my favorite jewelry stores. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

You Might Say I'm a Dreamer...

You might say I'm a dreamer...

Arcade time is once again upon us, you know, that one time a year that everyone on the grid pretty much craps their pants, and empties out their bank account because you just have to have that one rare that the machine won't give you. I mean.. this sounds pretty much about right, right? I know it's almost the case for me. I mean, my name is Sash Arabello, and I'm an arcade gatcha addict. Welp!

This round marks the one year anniversary of the Arcade, and everything is just so amazing, and awesome! I'm extremely excited to see Lark in the round up, Sienia is so talented, she truly deserves to be in there! And then you have the cuteness my MishMish, like.. I know I already blogged it, but it's so cute I don't even care. And what about that rare by Alouette? and let's not even talk about the mess that was TeeFy. I think I sold my soul to that machine. But.. over all, I couldn't be more excited for this round, so beautiful and amazing, like.. I'm speechless. So if you haven't gone.. make sure to keep trying! And maybe even try the yard sales while you wait to get in, I assure you.. with this amazing round, you won't be disappointed. THere's going to be way more to come, but this is just a sneak peek at a set that I'm currently working on. Enjoy being swept by my magical dream!

Oh dear.. another day and another blog post? I might just be on a role. Or maybe it's just the fact that Arcade is almost here, and I always get uber excited when Arcade is upon us!

Natalee, you disagree, I'll kill you :). 

Not only do we have the awsome charms and headband by Noodles, but Olive has made a nice line of briefcases, and they also have them in backpack mode. One of my favorites, other than the Hogwarts colors, ofc, it's the one with the Mickey ears and the color pattern.. and the pretty bow on top all Minnie mouse like.. Rose.. this was just freaking brilliant, I loved it. So.. today.. I wanted to put it all together to make a very awkward look, cus.. I'm just a teenage dirtbag baby <3. Now.. let's just glare at the calendar until it's the first, sounds like a plan? I THINK SO.

My Favorite Places

My Favorite places

So just like every Monday.. Berry posted her challenge up, and today it's about your favorite places. And I sat for a while. I mean.. my list is pretty boring. I either shop, or stay in a platform forever. So.. I doubted pictures of a white box would have been very interesting, besides, it's not neat AT ALL, so.. that was out of the question. But.. then I thought.. when I'm not working, I actually do stuff... other than shopping.. I roleplay! And I mean, right now there's very few places that I enjoy, all with the drama and lame people, just.. no.. You know? Like.. not even going to be going into it because I don't like to be negative, but.. whatever. There's one place in the grid however, that always has me going back to it, and that's Mischief Managed. I've talked about it a lot of times, but.. it's picturesque, and it has awesome RP stuff going on, so.. of course I would love it. Further more, there's also a new sim around the grid for Game of Thrones RP that an old friend of mine that I met in Mischief Managed brought me too, and I've been having a lot of fun there too! So.. I guess my two favorite places in the grind are.. Mischief Managed, and Crownlands

I also wanted to take a couple moments right now to speak about a couple new releases. One.. Umm.. Can we please talk about the new uniforms that Damien Fate released for his Fateplay line? It has kid mesh sizes. You know.. they fit child av's, without toddleedoo, and not only that.. they're actually well made, and mesh. I think the whole Hogwarts community in SL wept in joy when this was released. 

Now.. shifting. ARCADE! Arcade is upon us, and I've been lucky enough to get a couple previews, and some more that i'll share in a blog post later this week. But.. well, if you're like me, you're awaiting for the Arcade to open up while jumping up and down your chair. No, really, is okay, this release is sooo exciting. For once.. the cute adorable chipmunks of MishMish.. I mean.. words can't even describe how adorable they are! And then you have the release of Lark. Lark is new this round in the Arcade, and I couldn't be happier to see them in this line up! Like.. It's uber exciting because Sienia is an amazing talented designer that works extremely hard and her creativity is just.. extraordinary. I think the release she made for the Arcade just shows us a glimpse of not only her talent, but that amazing creativity that she possesses that sets her apart from every designer out there. Her books and bookcase are really cleverly done, and the texturing is some of the best that I've seen in the gird in those books, and I'm not even exaggerating. I love these. So.. make sure to keep an out for her, and visit her store for other amazing stuff! Meanwhile, sit with me and glare at your pc, until it's time for you to get into the Arcade!

Slytherin' Up with a 42.

Slytherin' Up

So it really shouldn't be a surprise that I love anything and everything Harry Potter. But.. well.. I should seriously change that. I don't love Harry Potter. I love the Death Eaters, and Voldemort, and the Malfoys, and Slytherin. So with school starting up, and also Mischief Managed about to start a new school year, I decided to do a small Slytherin look for my blog today, because.. I mean, why wouldn't I?

One of my favorite activities in Second Life is roleplaying. Before I got into blogging, and before I started to try to be a wanna be builder, all I did was roleplay. This goes back like.. Oh God guys.. 2006? I started out in Gor, like a lot of people, and then started moving towards either Hogwarts sims, or Urban sims. I still remember my first Hogwarts, with Harry Prefect and Darcy Ruthledge as owners. I met some amazing people there that I still keep in contact.. at times, I have to admit, I'm so shy at times I don't, but! I still keep in touch and love them, and have very fund memories of them. Now, I find myself in an awesome Hogwarts inspired sim, that is just so breath taking and well built, I guess it would be the closest thing to being in Hogwarts for real. I adore this sim, and I actually can't wait to be a part of the new school year! I'm going to be around amazing friends, new and old, and I think it's going to be fantastic. 

So.. I guess this ties in with the group meme that Berry posted this week, because as a blogger, wanna be builder, and a role player, juggling group spots is sooo hard! So I thought I'd give a crack at the meme this week. Here we go! 

Meme Instructions: Answer the following questions about groups and share some of your favs with us. Don’t forget to leave your link in the comments!
  1. Have you reached the 42 group limit? Yup. All the time, regardless how many times I try to clean up! Welp.
  2. Do you do a lot of group hopping to keep up with all the groups you want to stay a part of? Yup, it's the only way to try to be able to manage them, really.
  3. What makes you want to join a group? Either they have to be a designer that I completely and totally love, a roleplay community I'm very active in, or blogger groups. With designers moving to subscriber style things that send you the item instead of you having to join a group it's starting to become easier to manage. Still though.. designers that don't use this system- PLEASE DO! Kay? Kay. I am so glad we had this talk.
  4. A lot of store VIP groups have a group fee which you have to pay to join. How do you feel about paying group fees? I'm not a huge fan of group fees either. Though.. i guess.. at very few places it's worth it. The only two groups that I've joined that have group fees are Auxiliary, Mon Tissu, and Gos. The only reason is because the benefits surely do outweigh the cost. Though I'm starting to double thing about Mon Tissu, that was a hefty joining fee, and very little for it, I'll be honest. 
  5. Name a few groups that you are a part of that you feel everyone should look into joining and share your reasons behind that.
    –>Mischief Managed - why? Because Harry Potter. Need I say more? I've always wanted to embark in my own Hogwarts story, and I finally get the chance to do it, so.. if you're an uber Harry Potter fan like I am.. join! But keep in mind.. Slytherin are the only cool people. If you're not Slytherin, you're really not part of the cool group. Specially if you're a badger. LOOKING AT YOU SCARLET CHANDRAYAAN!
    –> Auxiliary VIP group. You get free gifts often, and even though you have to pay a joining fee, Tyr and Ivy's designs are amazing. Love them.
    –> Noodles VIP group. Because.. Nat is an amazing jewelery designer, and she gives store credit for your purchases if you're wearing your VIP tag, and free group gifts. Just for a small joining fee. So of course it's worth joining!
    –> SLBlogger support if you're a blogger is a must! You get to keep up with the community and what's going on, and there's always someone there if you have questions, and they have a nifty little website that keeps up with everything blogger. Love that group.
So that's it for the 42 Blogger challenge..and.. don't forget to join Mischief Managed to become a Slytherin today! Big things will be happening soon! I promise. And don't join the Hufflepuff house. Badgers like to pretend they're cool.. but.. come on, really?

White Blank Page

White Blank Page

I feel like I haven't blogged in forever! So I wanted to do something brief, I've just been getting into so many shenanigans lately it's hard to keep up with it all! I'm starting to work on mesh more, so that means my work here has been suffering, and with mesh comes stress, and with stress comes a destressant or something, which has been hanging around Inka, who will now be writing with us here in the blog! HOORAY for that! I'm actually uber exciter for Inka joining in here and being my blogging partner, and just.. partner in everything, I love that girl's face, and i've also been rp'ing a little.. but.. never the less, I decided to share some more new goodies, some from collab, others are old things, others are just.. I love them and you'll have to deal okay? Good. 

So Lelutka, new hair, and it comes with a hat.. obviously the hat didn't go with the outfit, but I totally loved the hair, it has a very free flowing form, and even though the picture /is/highly/edited/ the hair is for sure worth going over and demo'ing it. I mean.. comes with a hat, come on! Then I totally love this suit from Ison.. it's totally adorable, and just.. so mainly in a feminine manner, I love the draping work and just.. amazing work. Then.. we have who re released a couple of heels of hers, and I'm just totally in love, I'm loving slink add on shoes now, guys, I thought I wouldn't but.. I have to admit, the look of them is just amazing. So.. that brings us to accessories, LaGyo is one of my favorite places for jewelry, it's eccentric, high fashion, and just me, and it's also affordable, this set, the one with the cuff, actually comes with an HUD that allows you to change the color of the pieces so you can match your cuff to the outfit, or just make a color palette that you enjoy. The tattoo is new, from Tenjin for the Acid Lily event, which basically is all new, and has a new line up, and I'm uber excited. The tattoo is in a mesh sleeve, so you don't have to have it repeat in both arms, I kind of loved that, to be honest, and it also has the tattoo option if you want it repeating. Finally we have accessories by Remarkable Oblivion, whom I love, duh! I believe the headband is free in a group gift, if you join the group, though it might have been taken down.. you'll have to check, but the group is free to join! That's it for today guys! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
