HATE TO ASK THIS
..but I need 25 likes on these Facebook Pages to get a custom (vanity) URL. Please help? I’m so close. It’s like catching Pokémon, and it’s driving me mad.
You can unlike both of them once I get that URL, I’d be ever so grateful…!!
NOTHING IS FUNNIER..
Than a guy with his pants buckled around thighs (you know, that half-down, sort of falling off your butt look that has been popular for quite a while now), running for the bus.
I saw him trying to pull his fashionable pants up and hold them up as he was half waddling/running for the bus. Best giggle ever.
…a man who is texting while driving in a car, with a bumper sticker that says:
I don’t text because I don’t have a texting plan nor use a cellphone (much), but I certainly would not be texting while driving in the car, least of all, sporting a bumper sticker being against it!!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THE RESALE VALUE OF THESE BAGS?
Got this email, and Hermès bags really seem to keep their value. Incredible.
SPEAKING OF PRICING… THIS WAS FUNNY
Caught it on the site the other day. Has anyone noticed that BR is starting to avoid putting coupons or deals, saying: “Discount already applied site wide”?
I think they’re falsely inflating the price, then “discounting” it in red to be the real retail price they hope to sell it at.
I know they are trying hard to combat the discount culture and to just stop giving 40%+ discounts altogether, but once you start it’s hard to stop. JC Penney I think, was a nice cautionary tale in trying to stop discounting, but they ended up paying dearly for it.
People LOVE discount codes. Even if they aren’t real.
With the winter upon us, I have stocked up (on sale), these BootRescue wipes.
I’m trying to wear my boots and keep them in good condition, but can’t be bothered to pull out the shoe shining kit every time I go out & come home; it’s a lot of hassle but the slush & salt is really ruining my nice leather boots.
I think they were on sale because they were slightly dried out, seeing as it takes two to properly clean a boot. :\
Maybe the fresh packs are filled with more liquid…
They work decently well. I’d say if there was more liquid in them, they really do scrub the salt and stains off my boots fairly well.
Have you tried these? I wonder if Baby Wipes work as well.. but I’m scared to try.
LOVE CAPES, CAN’T WEAR ONE
For me, it harkens back to the idea of the past, a very retro, sort of vintage nurse look where everyone wore a hat and gloves because you were otherwise uncovered.
I also think it looks a little super heroine-ish.. which I don’t hate. It just looks so chic when you have a cape on, and then you’re holding a small clutch, and in the other hand, your phone. *sighs with the fantasy of it all because that doesn’t happen with a toddler*
Capes are something I love in theory and on everyone else but me because of y massive (yes I think they’re huge) shoulders in comparison to the rest of my insect thin body. I know, #FirstWorldProblems
I guess the closest I shall ever get to this, is wear a jacket slung over my shoulders, sleeveless which is not happening right now with an active toddler itching to break free, or a really great poncho like this one.
What’s something you love on others but can’t wear?
(Last one, this cape/trench hybrid is so pretty. OMG. Makes me want to just break this rule..)
BUT REFUSE TO WEAR CHOKER NECKLACES
Choker necklaces look bad on everyone.
I can’t imagine or remember the last time I saw a choker on someone and thought: OH THAT LOOKS NICE, a little bit of choking action there, cutting off your air supply… Into S&M bondage are we?
WHO CALLS THEIR (GRAND)PARENTS BY THEIR FIRST NAMES?
I’ve never understood it when parents or grandparents ask and insist that their children or grandchildren call them by their first names. Someone please explain this…
Maybe it makes them feel old otherwise but all I know is it just seems disrespectful to do so. When I said this to my partner he said: oh yeah it’s really common in France for grandparents to ask their grandchildren to use their first name.
Then I started seeing it a lot more especially here in Montreal (French Canada), particularly with parents who are French-Canadian.
My stance is I’m Mommy to Baby Bun and that’s it. By no stretch of the imagination is he allowed to address me as Sherry because it is a term of endearment and a very deep emotional connection that Baby Bun is the only one can call me Mommy in the whole world and it makes me feel very happy and warm inside each time I hear his little toddler voice proclaim: Mommy!
Maybe not all the time , of course but most of the time or when we are both in good moods and relaxing, there is nothing better.
