I 'm a mess with titles :S

Hey Folks!

When I have too much on my mind it becomes blocked and after attending a boss-employee meeting I ended up with so many ideas floating round my mind I just forgot about all the other things I should have been doing. Today I managed to finally finish the sneak peak and some other job that Zelly has me working on for her.

The post today will be based on three things. First of all I’ll show you the last 5 pictures from the collection “In the Mood” based on Kim Basinger. This was released on Saturday and can be found in the middle of our mains tore.

I have for you something that Zelly wanted me to create and it’s to show you the original pictures that the poses were based on. It took me some time to come up with this nice little design for them :)

I have to say the end result is not what I had in my mind, as I’d prefer to show you my own way to the use the poses in Second Life and in Real Life; I may come up with something else a later, not sure yet though.

Anyhow, here they are ;)






Next, I’m getting the new releases well in advance of their release date, so I am now able to produce true sneak peak pictures for you. The next line up of poses are incredible and I am really looking forward to showing them all to you, but in the mean time you’ll have to wait.. but I do have this for you, enjoy it :P

Sneak Peak next release

Lastly, we have a new dollarbie available to you all and like all the other poses our dollarbies now come with a new style and name…

Dollarbie Pose 01

The dollarbie poses are available to our group members for the super low sum of 1L, if you are not a member then you have two choices, the first is simple.. Become a group member! The second.. is to buy them at a slightly higher price than 1L. But of course the obvious choice is join our group and enjoy all the great benefits our group members receive. Not a group member? What are you waiting for? Join us now!

Join our group is real easy, just locate one of the huge group adverts we have round the store, and then do a simple ‘click’ and voila! you are now a member! Simple huh? What are you waiting for then? Not convinced? Well, joining our group won’t take a group slot, you’ll enjoy all the lovely gifts we give out, you’ll get the latest updates and news and you’ll get full access to all the dollarbie we have on offer! I assume you have stopped reading now.. and are on your way to find our group advert…. If you are reading I guess you’re already a member! :P

Oh, before I forget, I reminder that there are still a few shops available to rent here at Harlow!

There is one store for 375L weekly and you'll get 75 prims to use, contact Jordan Whitt for more details. But our other choice is the boards for advertising, there are 6 boards avaliables for you in front of the main store and 4 at the docks ... come to have a look!

New Release! Kim B at Striking Poses!

Hello everybody!

This weekend is going to be another busy few days as lots of new skins and shapes come out, and I have to say that I have been waiting some time for this to come. Why? Because my lovely fiancé has promised to buy me my favorite “make up” set :D

And how can we not forget, with the weekend comes…. A NEW RELEASE! I have for you this fabulous sexy woman who goes by the name of Kim Basinger. Remember the sneak peak? Well this is her! The collection comes with 10 poses, two of which are sitting and one lying pose. It is a very insinuating collection the poses are original, making them ideal for cloth designers. A pose set we should all have in our inventory….. In our adverts… and well.. In every store! Be sure you’ll be ‘In the Mood’ to get this ;)

Also as mentioned in my previous post, we have put together some large adverts that detail the name changes to each pose set, this should make it easier to identify if you already own the pose or not. Since the changes in our store the only release is this ‘In The Mood’ collection so you have not missed anything!

New Name List ad

A REMINDER! You only have 4 days left to collect the chilies in Harlow! Be warned, they are “too hot to handle” *giggles* So make sure you visit our sim Hunt here at Harlow, you have till the 30th September. Hurry Hurry!

Its Getting Hot in Here!

Almost "Too Hot To Handle"!!!!

I've been bouncing around Harlow picking up chili peppers full of goodies that our stores have put out for you to find. I'm so amazed at the gorgeous gifts that they are giving and have some pics for you to look at. I'll be heading back down to hunt some more a bit later and will have more goodies to share soon!

Pose - Full Tilt #

One of my favourite finds was this uber sexy dress from Dance Creations. They are not just giving you one gift during this hunt...but 5 amazing gifts! This is in #2 and I just love it. The bodice is breathtaking and it comes with 5 skirt options, so there is one for any occasion. With it I am wearing the women's engagement ring from The Loved Collection at Zari. Its her gift for you in the hunt. Its a simply stunning heart shaped diamond ring which you can wear even when you're not engaged!

Pose - Misunderstood #3

You have NO IDEA how long I have lusted over this dress...and to find it in one of the two gifts from Milady's Fancy...OMG...it made my entire hunt!!!! I love the lace detailing down the sides, the sparklie fabric and just everything about it. Its one of those dresses you just feel incredibly sexy in! If blue isn't your colour, there is a whole range of other options in store at Harlow.

Pose - International Model 12 #2

A new addition to our stores at Harlow is Multiple Personality Disorder. This is one store you are bound to love. The clothing is incredible and such wonderful quality...and EVERYTHING costs only $1!!!!! Yes that is not a misprint. Everything in store is only one linden!!! You can afford to go nuts in here...I know I did. This is the cute gift from MPD and its just adorable!

Pose - Body Beautiful #1

From Amanda's Fashions comes two sexy sets of lingerie from her new line - Amanda's Secret. You get this sexy set which is the Cherry one, and another in Red. You can just never have enough lingerie and these are two sets that will be sexy new additions! I love corsets and these are lovely ones!

Pose - Long Cool Woman #8

Silk & Satyr's addition to the hunt is this sexy little number called Caliente. Its a gorgeous little number that will look great whether you're dancing alone in your bedroom or out in a club. Its just a fun little outfit and you will love it! Check out their other dollarbie in store!

This is just a tiny taste of the goodies hiding around the stores in Harlow. The hunt runs until the 30th Sept, so you have plenty of time to come hunt out the hot peppers and the fabulous gifts they are hiding.

Another quickie....

Hiya guys, just another quick update.

Yes we're all still alive and kicking, although suffering technical difficulties at the moment.

We have the Too Hot To Handle sim wide hunt at Harlow starting tomorrow, the 15th September, which will be running till the 30th. Keep your eyes open for the stores displaying the hunt poster!

Zelly's router has had a meltdown and she is unable to be online at the moment, so she sends her apologies to all hunters who will be searching in the Striking Poses store. As soon as she is back with us, her gift will be hidden. But don't forget to check out the rest of the stores for their hidden gifts.

Current Vacancies at Harlow:

50 Prim Stores...$250/wk

74 Prim Store...$375/wk

150 Prim Store...$750/wk

700 Prim Store...$1470/wk

Don't forget the advertising boards around the sim. We have some on the docks where we have at least 20 people several times a week participating in fishing tournaments who can see your advertised business or service.

So we're hoping to be back to our normal blog postings soon. This whole pose rebranding has taken a lot out of us all...especially Ake who deserves a medal for all the hard work she is doing. Don't forget to pick up a list from the signs around the store which will tell you the name changes so you don't do a "Jordan" and keep buying poses you already have.

Quick Post =)

Wow what a bad week or so I have had lately! Things ended up being overlooked or put on the backburner while I dealt with some SL dramas, RL bad news and other things that needed my time and attention.

We have a sim-wide hunt coming up soon, so watch this space for more info on that. Also we have all been hard at work (especially Ake and Zelly) renaming and shooting all the poses, so don't forget to pick up a list from the vendors around the store and to rename the ones you have so you don't end up confused and buying poses you already have. That seems to be a constant problem I have!

We also have some fantastic new stores on the sim to come check out as well as a few vacancies. I can't wait to share them all with you!

The yardsale was a lot of fun and thank you to all who participated by donating items or lindens, or who stopped by and shopped.

Hi Everyone

Gabi/Feather here... I just wanted to thank each and everyone of you for ALL of your support during the yard sale at Harlow. With your help and that of your friends...The Toy Run earned about 16,000 lindens over the two week period. That and your donations to the bear will definately help to feed alot of families this coming Holiday Season!!!

Words cannot express what it means to Russ and Myself how much the people in SL give to this cause. It is something very close to our hearts.

Please know that every linden donated means so much and without people like all of you, it wouldn't be possible to supply toys for the kids and feed additional families in need.
From the bottom of our hearts..and lots of love....THANK YOU SO MUCH

Gabriella Molinari (aka) FeatherRiver Bolissima

As an aside, if you would like a bear to set up in your store or give to your friends that have clubs, or any other area that might seem appropriate, please give me a hollar. They are copyable and transferable, and all donations are paid to the owners of the bear then automatically paid to Feather..so no tracking is necessary. We will have the bears out until December 1, 2009. At which time, all money donated will be exchanged for US dollars and deposited in the account set up for the Feather River Toy Run.

Thank you again


We'll be back to our regular blogging soon =)
