Effortless Anthropologie Wants RewardStyle To Fix This

Roxy Turtle, runs an Anthro fansite, seems to be having an issue with RewardStyle. Apparently she’s been having having tracking issues with her affiliate links – and she claims that while RewardStyle was initially helpful they have not only closed her complaint, they became intimidating when she responded she would not let this drop.

Unfortunately, the relationship with RewardStyle seems to be taking a nosedive…I’ve been getting emails from a RewardStyle Vice President that feel threatening. Retaliatory.

Saying “all I want is to understand what happened and get a promise that it won’t happen again”, Roxy went into Mistreated Little Person Versus The Big Bad Corporation mode.

I feel scared and unsure what to do…They have the team and resources at their disposal. They are a huge company and they seem to be putting their efforts into threatening me. I just don’t get it…I have been crying for most of the afternoon…I’m one tiny person and RewardStyle a huge company. It feels so scary to me that they might come after me, retaliate. I feel scared.

She goes on to say she feels RStyle is gearing up to drop her because she “asked too many questions”, but that isn’t what she wants at all. After going on and on about how scared and upset she is, and how she feels ‘threatened’ by RStyle, Roxy says she still wants to work with the company.

Ideally, at this point what I want is what I mentioned above: an in-depth explanation of what happened, an agreement on how to prevent this in the future, and a promise that the relationship will go back to normal with no retaliation.

I really don’t get all the blogger kowtowing to RewardStyle. Are they just the only affiliate company out there or something? I just don’t understand why Roxy would want to continue working with a company that treats her in the manner she’s claiming. Surely RStyle isn’t the only name in the game. Get out and find another affiliate company!

Ashley Does Not Appreciate Your Crush

Ashley, forever, is finally speaking out against all the evil women out there who don’t see the big red “Property Of” stamp on her husband’s face, and dare to have a crush on him.

A female friend had e-mailed him saying that a friend of hers had a crush on him…it was just a harmless message, right? No.  It’s not harmless…That treacherous Jezebel!  I have a problem with it.  I have a serious problem with it.

Ashley then provides a list of reasons why your crush on her husband is terrible and awful and you’re a bad person who should feel bad. The list includes things like “you’re trying to lead my husband’s soul astray”, and it’s “disrespectful”. She says her husband is “strong in his faith, and never considered adultery, but I resent her trying to place temptation in his path”, as if it’s up to the women of the world to keep him free from “temptation”.

She goes on to berate you shameless hussies, asking “Were you thinking he would keep it from me, that you would have a secret friendship, that you would somehow be closer or more important to my husband than I am?”

Do I have a problem with you and your crush?  Yes.  Yes, I absolutely do.  Does it matter now if your feelings change?  If you move on to someone else?  If you say you’re no longer interested?  No.  No, it doesn’t.  Why not?  It’s simply because your morals have already been shown to be questionable and because you cannot be trusted.  Of course I trust my husband but trusting my husband does not mean that you are suddenly deserving of trust or friendship.

She concludes by claiming “forgiveness has been granted” to the “Jezebel” in question, which makes one wonder about the point of the post in the first place.

Instagram Still Being Used To Showcase Stupidity

uhwut

Looks like Jon is having a fun Sunday, if not a very smart one. Not sure documenting yourself driving around with open booze is the best way to celebrate a wedding, but hey, you do you.

Maybe Cecily can jump in and high five them for sticking it to the DUI checkpoint man.

Hey Natalie Jean Knows How To Do Minimalism

Natalie Holbrook, she’s from Brooklyn, has been trying to make a minimalist ‘capsule’ wardrobe thing happen. She apparently thinks a pared down wardrobe collection will…honestly I’m not sure why she’s doing it, other than maybe an excuse to shove some rstyle links up our noses.

But don’t you dare think for one second that it should be easy for a stay at home wife married to a six figure salary of a man to figure out which items should be included in her amazing minimalist hanging-on-display collection.

My problem isn’t in simplifying a look, it’s in simplifying my options. I like this red plaid shirt, but I also like this red plaid shirt! And which one will I want to wear the most? And what would that preference that even say about a person?

Her final list of choices adds up to almost $5,000 and includes a $175 striped tee and a $250 red plaid shirt, which should pair nicely with the free extra pair of boots she received the other day. Because heaven knows you need at least 10 pairs of black boots.

Don’t even get me started on the boots. I love these black boots, but I also love these black boots, and I don’t need both but they’re just sooo different though!

Bored rich white ladies – they’re just like us!
