Here are a couple of links I frequent for up to date sales, events, hunts, and general fashion/home: (Non Feed Sites)
SeraphimSL– This is probably the most visited site for shoppers who want to browse before logging in world. Also a great resource for advertising, prices are decent and utilization of adspace is pretty fair. Not overly cluttered with flash ads and easy to navigate. I would like to see a decent mobile page set up sort of thing (maybe an app?)
EloquenceSL– Brand new Events Blog spearheaded by former owners of Seraphim… Equally great coverage and layout is banner based, easy to navigate.
Essential Inventory via Facebook- Must have Facebook account obviously lol. But great resource here as well.
Second Life Sales Events via Facebook- Designers and event organizers utilize Facebook to its finest… always up to date
