‘Already Pretty’ – A Liveblogged Book Review

It’s time once again for us to expand our hearts and minds with a moving tome by a blogger. This week’s life changing event is ‘Already Pretty: Learning To Love Your Body by Learning to Dress It Well’ by Sally McGraw of Already Pretty. I haven’t even opened the book yet and I’m already sighing, so let’s get started.

On to the TL;DR…

‘What I Wore’: A Liveblogged Book Review

Happy Friday, hambaskets! It’s Book Club day, my favorite time of the whole week. This time I’m drinking my way through ‘What I Wore: Four Seasons, One Closet, Endless Recipes For Personal Style’ by Jessica Quirk. So put on your scarves, strap on your nude Coach sandals, and settle in for the most basic of basic style books around.

On to the TL;DR…

Lucky FABB Conference ‘Postponed’ Indefinitely

Following EIC Eva Chen’s announcement that she will be leaving Lucky, attendees of the Lucky FABB conference received notice that the event would be postponed.

In light of today’s announcement regarding Eva Chen’s future transition from the Lucky Group to spend time with her new family, we are prioritizing what is best fo the brand and have made the decision to postpone the upcoming Lucky FABB conference.

The news came just a week before the May 9th event. While event coordinators assured attendees they “will be receiving reimbursement for your ticket fee” many bloggers are angry at the short notice since some already spent money on airfare and accomodations.

Not to tell anyone how to do their job or anything, but couldn’t they have gone forward with the conference and then announced at the event that Eva Chen was leaving? Seems like a missed opportunity for a big news push. Anyway, it seems bloggers and brands burned by the short notice are planning their own meetups, so those new outfits and instagram opportunities won’t go to waste after all.

New Instagram Attempts To Get Around ‘liketoknow.it’

wubiwoo

Apparently a new instagram account appeared the other day. Its purpose seems to be providing sources to items featured by bloggers using the ‘liketoknow.it‘ affiliate link system. The account is called ‘whereubuyit‘ and bloggers are already pissed at this circumvention of their affiliate income. The two day old account already has 300 followers, and climbing. I don’t see the account lasting too long because surely some litigious blogger or RStyle rep will have it shut down.

I don’t have much to add here but wanted to see what other people think of this. I’m not a fan of denying people income, but on the other hand, there should be more clarification on how the affiliate link cookies really work. What say you, hams?
