The Claudia Lioncourt suite

I'm not sure if any of you are familiar with Anne Rice's Chronicles of the Vampires books, but Vampire_Claudia's page is so good that I had to post about it.
Her page is a tribute to the fictional character
Claudia who appears in the book Interview with the Vampire. There's also a very famous movie interpretation, released in 1994. In the film, Claudia is interpreted by Kirsten Dunst.
In her suite, you can make a perfect travel through the story and its most remarkable places, in a very Victorian-era style:
I honestly think she's done a brilliant job. Opinions?

Museum Mile new floors

Today we got 5 new floors for the Museum Mile store. Among the new items you can find a lot of artistic stuff such as statuettes, sculptures and even a reproduction from the very well known portrait "The Gleaners":

There are pieces of clothing available on the portrait, also. You can get them through clicking on the figure with the yellow hat (providing you a blue dress and a hat) and on the red hatted figure (providing you a red dress).
What do you guys think about the new collections?

Internet safety

Stardoll recently did an internet safety campaign. They might be overreacting with certain things, but they do have a point. These days it's fairly easy to get a person's information over the internet and things like embezzlement, identity theft etc. really do happen.
For the more informed: with laws like SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA being in debate, I think we'll all have to be more careful soon.

Did you know that there is an average of 4 background applications collecting your information, and 5 on the Stardoll homepage?

Quantcast is following you right now. They're selling your information to advertisers. I bet you didn't know that.

Furthermore, magine this;
You finished school. You're looking for a job. All your employee has to do to get your information is find you on Facebook. If you're not careful, he'll see you drink, smoke and possibly some other things you don't want him to know. And just like that, you lost a job.

My suggestions:
1. Be careful. Don't post everything about you on social websites.
2. If you don't want to be followed, some applications can be found to ensure your privacy:
For Firefox, you have add-ons like Ghostery, NoScript, BetterPrivacy or WOT that are used by millions of users. (I use Ghostery and I recommend it to everyone.)
For Chrome, you have Ghostery, WOT, AdBlock etc.
I'm not gonna search for Internet Explorer add-ons because I hope you're all smart enough to download either Firefox or Chrome.

There is also a safe search engine that doesn't collect your data, called DuckDuckGo. It speaks for itself:

I'm not saying you should use all of these, but at least give it a thought. If nothing else,
please, everyone take a minute and check out these two websites:

Sweet Suites + Interiors

A new store was released today with different items for decoration:

Most pieces are for superstars exclusively and they're also not that cheap. Some things are actually nice, though. I liked the Scottish Fold Cat, it looks really adorable:

The matching interiors are also available on the suite shop. You can get each for 30 stardollars:

Another gorgeous suite

I couldn't do without posting about the outstanding page GoldCharlotte has created. Her rooms are incredibly detailed, with clear morbid inspirations and very original ideas. You guys definitely need to check these out:

Her album is also one of the bests I've seen! It's truly poetic and creative, and I really think it deserves to win the album contest.
Don't you just love it? Be sure to give her a visit!
