Btw Big Thanks to all of you who left me lovely and supportive comments on my last blog post about my image getting used on The Lady Loves Couture social media platforms without my permission or giving credits. I sent them a message on Wednesday (26th) on their blog and Instagram giving them the credits to use for the image and surprise, surprise- it’s been 48 hours and not a peep squeek from them and the image is still up on their platforms with no credits.
I have put a post about this on my Facebook Page, it is pinned at the top, I’d really appreciate it if you could Share it on your Facebook Pages, I’m hoping that when The Lady Loves Couture sees that this is something they can’t just ignore to make go away that they will finally respond to my message.
