Hello everyone,

Please like our magazine page to get the latest updates on new releases, castings, events and even changes. We aim to keep improving the magazine and continue to allow styling talents to be showcased as our magazine model regardless of whether you have a modeling certificate or not!

https://www.facebook.com/StyleKingdomMagazine

We will be organizing an official event for residents without modeling certificates to cast to be part of our magazine group. This casting will allow residents to stay in the magazine group permanently as our magazine models.

Note : The only difference is that you will not have the official models tag as that is only given to certified models.

More updates on the dates, times and in-world venue will be told on our Facebook page.

Spoiler – Vol 5 will be one really special edition. How special? Keep watch for updates :)

You all know how much I love blogging about new stores. The owner of a new store dropped me his fatpack of cardigans. After trying them out, I chose one of my favorite Spring time colors, yellow. This style also includes some items that were released last month. Enjoy the style!

Style Kingdom Magazine Vol 3 – TEASERS Part 1

Hello everyone,

I’ve decided to only post a few teasers for Vol 3 and let all of you find out who will be featured on the actual release day itself.

What I can reveal is, we managed to have 75% of the models featured not being official/certified ones. The theme’s a tough one and if you think they couldn’t do a good job, think again and check out their styling when Vol 3 is released ;)

ADVERTISE on Style Kingdom Magazine

SK 2sc

Strip’d Fashion for Style Kingdom Magazine Vol 2

During our initial phase, Style Kingdom Magazine only personally invited some stores to advertise in the magazine, for free.

After releasing Vol 2 on the 1st of March, the response, feedback and emails were overwhelmingly good we’ve decided to open it up to ANY store that wants to advertise in the magazine.

Some things to note

1) Every magazine is limited to maximum 4 different store ads.

2) Priority will be given to stores that are 1yr old or less.

3) Stores more than 1 yr old will be given priority too, if we see you could use an extra boost.

4) No cost is involved, we advertise for free meaning we have the right to place whichever ads we want for any particular Vol to maintain the quality of the magazine.

Style Kingdom aims to not only promote residents with styling skills who aren’t official/certified models but also to promote new stores that have good clothes and need that extra boost without the financial burden.

For more information, email dougieboxen@gmail.com [ IM's will be ignored ]

Hey everyone,

I’m dedicating this post to my beautiful SL wife, Jade Spectre. She’s the best thing that has ever happened to me in SL. It’s been over 2 months since we got married and I’m loving every moment I spend with her. We’ve been through lots of ups and downs but love has conquered all.

I love you Jade :) Thanks for being the daring woman you are, chasing after me when you first got interested in me hahahaha <3
