Unfortunately this will be my last contest I will be running on The Stardoll Insiders. We have some new writers coming in and I need to cut back to one thing to write about. I decided I would go with updates to Stardoll. I am going to be finishing this contest though. So don't be afraid the contest is still on.
Hey everyone, Sorry for such a lack of posting recently. With Christmas over and the New Year coming around the corner everything is hectic right now. I really hope everyone had an awesome Christmas. Because I've been lacking posting i'm here to post about all the new things that have come to Stardoll in the last few days while I was gone.
First off, I want to tell everyone about the new stores. The new Voile Holiday Boutique is now available. I love all the clothes and accessories. The formal dresses are gorgeous. My favorite is the light purple flowing gown. What item(s) are your favorite(s)? We also have a new floor in PopShop. New Year 2011. What do you guys think of the new floor? I love the 2012 glasses!

Secondly, I'm here to talk about the January 2012 Hot Buys. I think they are great. They aren't my favorite but I still like most of the items. What items are your favorite(s)?

Lastly, the Disney Lounge has updated it's free items bar. Everytime the club reaches a new peak in members everyone who has joined will receive the free items. What do you think of the items? Are they worth it?
I know what you are thinking. 'Where have you been?' and 'Why haven't you been posting lately?' well the truth is, is that I have been home, and I haven't been posting because I'm purely lazy, that's all. I know, it's very irresponsible of me, and I understand I have let down the team. I say I will post, but in the end, I never do.
So I have thought about this for a week or so now..
I am leaving TSI for good.
I am really sorry for the inconvenience, but I just hate the feeling of letting you all down. I haven't been on stardoll as much as I used to, as I am slowly growing out of it. Next year, I may have a job. I may even have a life. I will most likely be starting a new school, moving to a new house, in a new city. I'll be having a fresh start. Also, there will be important exams going on, and I will have to do my best and study. I really don't wanna leave on a sour note, so I'll leave you with how this experience, and stardoll changed my life.
I have always loved TSI. Ever since it first started basically. And my dream back in the day, was to write for it. After days, months, and even years of dreaming, I entered the writers competition, and little did you know, I got accepted for being a writer. That fully made my life on stardoll a whole lot better. But the one thing bad about it, is that I took the opportunity for granted. All I can say, is I'm very, very sorry.TSI has been an amazing experience. Not only have I made a lot of fame and notice, and been able to make my point across to the wonderful readers, I have made some amazing friends.
Also, before I finish my final post, I would like to say one thing:
Stardoll is not just a 'doll 'site'.
As silly as it sounds, it is so much more.
It has taught me how to save, spend, and make money wisely. It has taught me how friends come and go, and to be careful who you trust. It has taught me that not everything goes the way it's planned. It has taught me that the sky is the limit when it comes to creativity. It has taught me how to reach for your goals, and to keep dreaming. (Like writing for TSI - I followed my goal, and I made it). I used to think stardoll was a waste of five years of my life. But now I think about it, Stardoll.com has taught me the basic skills of life, in the most subtle way as possible.
I used to be worried and embarrassed about having an account on stardoll, but I no longer fear people finding out about it. If people laugh at me about being on stardoll, I will laugh at them, because they really have no idea what they missed out on.
If you would like to stay in contact with me, I am still sometimes online on my stardoll account itsleroy. Thank you all for being wonderful team mates, friends, and readers. And thank you to Zoey, for helping my dream come true. I am truly greatful for this experience. Well I'm sorry for the long post. I hope you all have a safe holiday, and I wish you all luck for 2012.
