Pictures just aren't the same without you...

Nope! They sure aren't... I was bored, and missing my Beloved last night... So I thought I would head on over to the "Shiny, Shabby Event" late last night to see what I could find. So many great creators during this round, with so many awesome creations! It was so hard for me to decide what to buy. I did buy "stuff" tho, believe me! I was shoppin like it's my last day on earth! Here's is the first of the many, many, MANY, items I purchased from the event. It's a pose of all things!  I just could not pass up this set.  When I saw it in the little shop, I knew I just had to do something with it. Since my beloved was sleeping, and un-available to take a pic with me I decided to go it alone.  I wanted something that expressed how I was feeling in that very moment. The pose is by Exposeur, available for purchase now at the Shiny, Shabby Event.  So hop, skip, and run on over to the event, and take a look of the many wonderful creations there are to choose from. Enjoy!

I feel pretty

So here I am again... Did you miss me?  I feel so pretty today IRL, So, I thought that my Avie deserved to feel pretty to.

So Naturally I wandered into my closet to see what pretty finds I found while visiting this month's round of Collabor88...

I totally love the vintage type style the best. Although... I will admit that at times my style can seem all over the place. Vintage clothing is where it's at!

So many great items at Collabor88 this round, but this little ensemble is my favorite.

I imagine myself just lying in the grass, watching the clouds roll by, and holding the hand of my beloved, while wearing this gorgeous outfit.  No shoes required!  I love it!

Who wants to be my Valentine?!

LOL!!! All Kidding aside... I just don't have time for a valentine in my life as of late.  I'm to busy dealing with RL problems, but every now and again I like to slink on over to my SL side to see what SL has to offer me...  No!  I'm not talking about another Man!...  I'm talking about my real SL love...  SHOPPING!  So, Here is the first of many items I have found (as far as clothing goes)... To spoil myself with this valentine's season.  The dress is by Dead Dollz.  I absolutely love Dead Dolls formal wear.  I'll admit... I was not a fan at first... But, they have really come a long way in a short period of time.  Just about everything they make now is on my "Wishlist"...  I cannot wait to wear EVERYTHING in their store!  Kudo's to the owner of Dead Dollz...  You're quickly becoming a favorite of mine, which is saying a lot, because anyone who knows me will tell you that I am extraordinarily picky. Oh, and a special shout out goes to Glamestry shoes.  I am wearing the ramonda heel for the slink foot.  Come's with a handy dandy HUD for color change purposes.  These shoes are also available for the Mesh Project feet.

Be my own Valentine! I did do some spoiling of myself yesterday, and splurged a bit.  Bought some absolutely romantic furnishings that will sure make any of my guests "Feel The Love" when they enter my Love Shack.  I was feeling quite girly yesterday (I'm not sure why), but that being said...  I really do like the girly side of me (sometimes). If you're looking to fill your Love Shack with some of the goodies I have purchased, check out Finishing Touches.  I love this creator.  This furniture is absolutely amazing, and the couples poses within the furnishings are SUPERB!  Also make sure you hop on over to LAQ Home Decor.  I had been admiring this kitchen for quite some time, but failed to realize the color change options.  You can literally make your kitchen any color you desire.  Any Color!  The poses in the kitchen are pretty amazing and come with some nifty props for you to play with.  All in all... Not a bad day of shoppin...  I love spoilin myself for valentines day!

What a Day!

Well... After a long day of "Re-Vamping" a few Wedding Venues on my sim "Simply Bliss Weddings'...

I got a wonderful offline message from a lady in which whom I personally banned from my sim after finding that her and her partner copied a wedding venue of mine for their own Wedding sim "Family Ties Weddings"

Now folks...  I have tried to remain as professional as possible (if that's even possible in SL) for quite some time now.  I have tried to chill out a bit.  Let the small stuff "go".  and just have more fun with building.

However... Today has just been one of "those days"!

I logged out to have some dinner with my family and when I logged in I received the following message (and I am merely copy and pasting)...

[2014/04/16 18:49] Greeneyedbabe Resident: (Saved Wed Apr 16 06:49:09 2014)Excuse me ...Who the hell do you think you are ..Yes UI am an alt but I was looking to marry .. How dare you presume I was there trolling I mean WTF I was there looking to buy ..for my own weding .. I will be personally degradeing your company to anyone that asks me you rude bitch !!

Now folks...  I ask you...  Is this someone who you would trust your Wedding Day with?

Also mind you...  My original message to her was NOT rude in the least.  I merely stated that I had become to realize the nature of her visits and she and her partner had been banned.

I did not call her or her partners any names of any kind.  I was quite professional in my message to her.

I get that ppl have alts...  However... All of her alts are with "Family Ties Weddings"

Infact... After doing some lengthy research on these two individuals...   Everyone in the group "Family Ties Weddings"  is either Rob Collinson, or his lady love "Greeneyedbabe".

The thing that gets me the most is that she came by my sim on an alt...  earned my trust enough for me to show her my new Venue, because she really wanted to see "MidSummers" but I has already taken it down to buid the new Venue to take it's place.  I worked so hard  to Re-Vamp MidSummers...  I was picky, and only wanted the best possible options.   She then copied my venue and is using it as her own idea on her Wedding Sim.

Mind you all...  This very person and her partner in crime, have graced my sim a dozen times before I caught on to the nature of their visits.

Now, she is claiming she will degrade my company all because she got caught at her own game. REAL MATURE!

I can assure any potential customer this...  My first priority is your happiness.  I'm all about taking care of our couples.  As long as respect is a two way street between us...  There are NEVER any issues.  I am not perfect by any stretch of the word (no one person is)...  But,  I am VERY good at what I do.

I try my best to set pettiness aside, and please our couples where I can.  Even under the most extremely,  stressful situations...  My first and foremost priority is your happiness.

It just erks me so damn much, that us creators and business owners give so much of ourselves to SL and our businesses, and then we have ppl like this who just suck the fun right out of SL for you.

I come to SL as my escape from the RL Drama Rama Bullshit!

So many ppl say I have a bad Rep as a BITCH, because other ppl like this will degrade my company when I catch them attemptinig to copy my venues.

Doesn't matter if you own a business, or if you're trying to do your own wedding.

It's a slap in our faces when you copy us.

Why is it ppl do not grasp this concept?

I don't know...

I know I'm a hard Bitch to deal with when I catch you attempting to copy me.

Hell...  I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of my rage.

This has all just build up over 7 years of this nonsense, nonstop!

So I say to Greeneyedbabe and her partner in crime Rob Collinson... (and all of your alts)

I hope the copying was worth it.

I hope you both feel better about yourselves knowing that you copied someone else's idea.

I mean, for God's sake...  I wont even shop at stores that are known for copying.

I'm hoping some of you (my readers) will feel the same way...

I just want my readers to know that should you choose to have your wedding at "Family Ties Weddings"...

They copied someone else's idea.

Till Next time,

Winter Tenenbaum
