La Boheme is seeking bloggers in Second Life!

Recently we’ve cleared house and kept a core group of bloggers for the shop, but this also opens up the potential of taking on a few new bloggers who might be interested. Read on if you are a blogger potentially interested in working with La Boheme.

What is expected of a blogger:
At the beginning of each month we send out a store blogger pack with a multitude of items to our bloggers.  Within the span of that month we expect 2 blog posts at the very least which clearly displays an item from the blogger package and lists its name and what it is in the itemized style card.  IE: Nails – La Boheme (item name).  The same as most bloggers do for their ensemble posts.  If the blogger wishes to do more than 2 a month, that is entirely up to them and most welcomed.  That’s it!

What we look for in bloggers/blogs:
– We prefer blogs established for at least a year, but do make exceptions if the blog is well presented.
– Active blogs updated relatively regularly.  One post in three months does not cut it.
– Attractive blogs which are well thought out, communicate well and aren’t reckless eyesores.
– We are open to blogs in languages other than English so long as the blogger can speak/read English well enough to understand the info note cards in each blogger pack and also communicate with us when needed. Santana and Talus are lazy and only speak English, so sorry. =(
– Blogs which also post to frequently viewed Second Life related feeds for a wider audience.

What a blogger will need:
– A love of cosmetics, because that’s what we sell. lol
– Either Slink or Maitreya mesh hands (or Omega friendly hands) to be able to present our nail polishes when applicable.
– Catwa mesh head option – We are going to be releasing loads of Catwa-based cosmetics over the next several months, so having a Catwa head is preferred as of now but not necessarily mandatory.  LeLutka and Classic SL avatar cosmetics are on the back burner at present and will not be provided in blogger packs for a spell.
– The ability to maneuver mesh eyes if placement needs tweaking – we have been releasing tons of mesh and system eyes, so showing off those peepers is important.

That’s it!  Please drop a notecard on Santana Lumiere in-world with your SL name (not rename), URL to your blog, and any other information you wish to provide, such as the feeds you send posts to or anything at all about your blog.  Label the notecard “LB Blogger Application – (Your name),” please! ♥

La Boheme is back from summer vacation!

It’s been a nice, long summer vacation.  My SL business partner & RL boyfriend Talus came to stay with me for seven weeks where we loafed about and played Fallout 4 nonstop.  It may not sound very exciting, but it was a laid back vacation we were both in desperate need of.  The irony is, in the beginning I did not know how to stop working on store stuff and it took a great amount of effort to make myself STOP working. haha  When you put in 8-16 hour days making graphics, it becomes a habit which is difficult to break.

What’s coming soon from La Boheme: CATWA mesh head cosmetics!

I’ve already cranked out 31 sets of lip appliers for the Catwa mesh system, that’s 310 lipsticks! At this point I think we can all confirm that this past week I’ve had absolutely no life except waking up and working on cosmetics for this mesh head system. lol  These five separate lines of lipsticks are now in processing which Talus takes care of, and will be launching this October at various events (stay tuned, I will list these in the blog as they are released).

I am going to scribble a few blurbs here, but hide it behind a page cut so those who are interested may read on and the rest of you aren’t inundated with my rambling.
