All About gifts
Everyone loves receiving/getting gifts especially in Second Life where so many groups offer monthly gifts to their members in return for a group fee…Bestie and I have spoken about this various times we are not the type that gets our panties all in a twist if the creator has not put out a group gift right at the first of the month ♥  Dena and myself do have our favorite groups that we have been loyal members for years and the biggest reason is fantastic customer service…The designers/creators respond to questions in a timely manner, they have competent staff that knows the items and usually can solve the issue and if not they make sure the store owner is aware of any problems so they can relay an answer or even a refund if necessary ~ designers/owners also let their staff know how to contact them as well even putting on their profile contact information plus designers/owners are really good at keeping their members informed as to sales, new items and even a very important thing to excellent customer service is to send out a notice to reflect if the owner will be on vacation, or an RL emergency came up that will take them away from SL for possibly months at a time ~ when store owners disappear for over months and months members do get concerned and wonder if the store closing, there is no mention of gifts at all but members are curious if they see nothing new has been added in over a 6 month time period what is going on…what is also disheartening is when in a group chat someone asks those questions and is berated for that ~ being called selfish, bullied to the point why ask such a question as yes I agree RL will always come first yet when absense is stretched into months on end with the owner never sending out a notice to let her customers and group members be aware that possibly it might be a year or so and to be patient and thank everyone for waiting♥  It is called firstly good manners and great customer service ~ speaking of group gifts what Dena and I are wearing is a group gift from Scandalize that comes in pairs and a hud that will let you change the belt color…thats it for now ~ please let me say how much I appreciate all those that read my blog and those that send me compliments and comments as they truly make me smile ~ thanks to bestie for jumping in and being a part of this blog ♥  hugzz

Time to relax…

When you have had a hard day whether it be in the office, nursing, teaching or whatever your field of work is you just can’t wait to get home to change out of your work clothes, wipe away the make-up from your face, and just chill what better way than to slip into a comfy Chenille sweater by Finale Couture at this month’s Designer Showcase, grab that glass of wine, put some music on, then just drift off to your special place.

I  love looking out of my window watching the world drift by as you can see from the above image that is just what am doing well almost watching as I turned around so you could see how uber comfy this oversized Chenille sweater in Fuschia from Finale Couture is~ since I wear Maitreya the fit is perfect~Ok yes I do still have on my jewelry smiles, a girl likes to take her time undressing just in-case someone comes knocking on the door – yes you will be pleased to hear all the pieces of jewelry are included. There are six colors of this comfy Chenille sweater for you to choose…ok ok give me a few seconds and I will let you see the heels that the creator has also graciously included…

oh no Crows…

If you are old like me *sounds like a song huh* might remember this movie called “The Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock ~ loved his movies but they would literally freak me out and give me nightmares especially Psycho – couldn’t and wouldn’t take a shower unless someone like my Mom or Dad was guarding the door ~ silly but same with the birds I would get super freak if I saw crows sitting on the wires ~ but wanted something to really draw your attention to this upcoming event “Scare me Silly” it starts on Friday 13th and I got a quick peek at the Sim and OMG it is awesome as I cannot wait to just walk around and look ~ seems there will be lotz to do from shopping with so many merchants participating along with a pumpkin hunt that I have seen couple of the prizes and you do not want to miss out ~ but the biggest reason am honored to be a blogger for this is again a huge Charity event supporting The American Diabetes Foundation ~ ever wonder if you are at risk ~ please go HERE to learn exactly what they do ~ usually I do not ramble on this long so please accept my sincerest apologies ~ guess the thought of all those crows that I had come upon at Image Essentials really has muddled my brain and shuddering still that there is photographic proof of it ~ had a nice new Puffer Jacket from Rush one of the vendors at Scare Me and it was like OMG all these crows…see for yourself
