For example; my new sponsor, Rickshaw Bags, gifted me this lovely laptop, commuter bag, made from 100% post-consumer tweed in colors I picked out. These amazing bags are made right in San Fransisco and you can pick them up locally at Hot Italian. I've been lusting after these bags for ages and I'm so happy to finally have one to call me own. I spent hours on their site mixing and matching colors and materials to find the exact right combination for me.
Crossroads. Last week I found my photo collage front and center on the company's home page. It's since been taken down, but here's how it looked.
At first I was flattered, until I clicked on the image and was taken to a collection of spring looks with no mention of myself or blog. I quickly wrote an e-mail to the director of marketing explaining they were using my image without permission or credit. They responded with sincere apologies and promised to rectify the situation as soon as possible. In exchange for my trouble they sent me a $20 gift certificate, which I spent the day I received it. I must say I was surprised at the respect and sincerity show by Crossroads in this situation. They were quick to make it right and made sure I was happy in the end. They've earned my continued patronage and my bloggy good favor.
I bought two summer dresses because the weather's been so lovely, here's one of them.
- Floral sun dress from Crossroads ($9)
- Born heels also from Crossroads ($15)
- Target cardigan ($15)
- Bass outlet purse ($30)
Still no internet (14 days and counting). This post is brought to you by The Coffee Garden on 4th and Franklin.
