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 Fri.day, 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!
