Creamed Corn Wrestling

When Elizabeth told me she had something new planned, it intrigued me. I had no idea she was planning to set the fat pack for sale during her SL Daily Deals day. No. Clue. When I opened the site today I knew I needed to make time to get the set blogged.

Frippery

Frippery isn’t a store that I see blogged often … and wow, shoppers are missing this brand. The products are top notch for quality and so very whimsical. Its a smaller boutique with a ton of personality.

Speaking of a personality, the blog title was suggested by OMGWTF Barbecue. I think she’s stalking my plurk line just to suggest name posts. This was her second title, check out her first. I’m such a glutton for punishment.

Exodi Skins: Gifts & Preview

Just days ago, Exodi had in its SOM a gift – Lily V2. Lily is this brand’s most talked about skin and its getting a body makeover. This new version is just stunning; just like the original. I was pleasantly surprised to see such a gift in the SOM and in the group! Shown on Scarlet; the darker tone-Elm

blogged: Exodi - SOM gift & preview

For another release, sooner than Lily’s V2, is Dael. This skin will launch on June 1st at 12pm slt. I recommend hanging out at the store. The lucky chair has a new item: sculpted nails. As you wait for the skin release, stalk the chairs. In case you didn’t know, there is still the St Patty’s Day skin in the fishing hole. Tons of goodness at Exodi, you just got to be in the know!

Join the SOM and VIP group for all the latest news … and gifts!

Jade will be here soon, promise!

Friday May 28 is going to be a very busy day on Tuli Asturias’ sim. Rightfully so, she’s planning to release another beautiful skin. This one is named Jade.

Tuli Jade

Jade is a hybrid of the two other skins: Eva & Hope. Tuli took all the fan favorites of both skins to make Jade. What a wonderful creation!

Bad Business: Selling/Using Names Without Consent

By Luna Jubilee  //  SLife  //  5 Comments

Every day I receive a store message from a messaging service like ScriboMatic. These types of systems are awesome. I don’t have to free up a group slot to keep in touch with ongoings at the store.

Its NOT ok that I get messages from stores I don’t know or even visited. Today, I received a notice from a particular store that I didn’t sign up to join the mailing list. Yet, I have a message from this store.

I go to the store using the LM in the message, fly around the chaos for a few minutes and I don’t see the mailing list board. I IM the owner, who’s standing near my landing point.

I ask to be removed, he removes me. I think to ask him how he got my name as I’ve never heard of the store let alone visited the place to touch the board. He said they have several locations. Again, still don’t know the store to get on the board. This is a sure sign that my name was added or possible “sold” to the owner.

Its a bad business practice to sell people’s names to others in way of a mailing list or any other form. To the best of my knowledge, I didn’t approve the use of my name in this way.

Selling names for purpose of mailing lists or even using the sold list is a bad business practice.

Oh, I’m not the only one that this happens to and its never ever good. I know I won’t shop the store and will be asked to removed from the list, if I can not locate the unsubscribe feature.

(If you’re on my plurk line, you’ll know what store I’m talking about… but I’m not giving this store name or the owner here.)

Home Series: The Big House

Since my last post about home decor, my IMs have been on fire with people asking for more decor posts. My home isn’t overly stylistic but rather comfortable and cozy. Similar to my fashion tastes.

House Series - Main House

This is what I call the main house as its much larger. For this space, I’ve created a minimalist entry by removing the bulky doors and placing only a large photo at the end of the hallway. This pulls you into the space. The first stop is the downstairs sitting area. The sitting area is nearly identical as it was in the store. I just rezzed the set and added only a few other elements.

Upstairs, I kept with the “less is best” motif. I like keeping photos around the house simple; just prims hung on the wall. This area is turned away from any of the main windows so when standing outside, these personal touches are not seen. Yeah you could cam but don’t be that pervy neighbor.

For the outside, its two oversized patio chairs with multiple sits. My favorite is the chalkboard. It took only a few minutes in photoshop to create. I added a few pieces here to help dress up the area but kept it simple.

I’ve created a flickr group for all of you to add your home pictures: SL Homes

Thanks for checking out my home. I appreciate folks taking time to IM me about the post!
