    Beautiful Decay is running promotional pieces on luxury items now? That’s disappointing.

    Yeah. This is pretty wack!!! You’re not even going to mention your partnership with MB on this one? Poor Form. A simple note at the top explaining your motives would have made a world of difference.

    Hi Rich & Carey,

    I’m sorry to hear you’re disappointed by this but as you may be aware we are a very small independent business that relies on advertising to keep the lights on and to pay our writers. We have been around for over a decade and have supported tens of thousands of artists so I hope you understand if we squeeze in an ad or two from time to time to pay the bills. Also all of our sponsored posts are clearly marked as such at the top left of the post so there isn’t any confusion.

    Hi Rich & Carey,

    I’m sorry to hear you’re disappointed by this but as you may be aware we are a small independent business and online advertising helps us keep the lights on. The sales of our products don’t cover all our costs of paying the writers and artists that we employ, this is why we feature sponsored posts and advertising on the site.

    At the end of the day we have mouths to feed and people to employ and have to make a profit like any other company. A coffee shop can’t give away it’s coffee and the free content all our readers enjoy comes with the price of having to look at some advertising. In the end it’s a small price to pay given our long history of being on the cutting edge of art and design for 15 years.
