I have a system! From now on, check the timestamp if you’re wondering if a post was scheduled or not. If it was, it’ll say 6:00 (AM), and if it wasn’t, then…well, then it won’t.

That’s all :)

(also, upcoming: a post on IB segregation on Sunday, swatches on Tuesday, and a super-long post on Thursday as well.)

Satin Bow Clutch

Thursday, May 29, 2008

I’m in love with a certain Nine West clutch – I wish they shipped to Canada.

And then I found an almost identical clutch. At a price tag that is… almost double. x.x

Take a look, my dears. Guess which is which??

The one on the left is, get this, $38. The one on the right? $20. I get that that isn’t a HUGE difference, but is the one on the right not so much prettier?

Then go forth, my dears! And buy the Nine West!

(I know, this post is lame. But I’ve been having such a weird day, okay? I ran around the school asking everyone what they ate when they were little, because I want to eat some little people food. I think it’s because I thought of worms and dirt, which I LOVED when I was a little thing. Also, I can’t remember anything for more than ten minutes. I’ve been writing this post for…twenty. Because I keep getting distracted while I search for pictures. Anyhow.)

…does Lancome not use codes?

Either way; buy two items from their Divine Summer collection, or ANY two eye items, and get a full size Cils Booster XL. Or, get a little brown pouch and two samples (High Definition Shaving Foam, 50mL and Age Fight Fluid, 5mL) with any men’s purchase. Also, $85 purchases get you free shipping and two free samples, if you’re a member.

Where can I find this??

I can’t find these anywhere.

I’m looking for a sample/decant of Pear and Grapefruit; can anyone swap me for one?? I can’t find a sample online, on MUA, through Google, or on Ebay. And I don’t want to buy without smelling first, because I have a tendancy to hate everything I smell x.x

Or, does anyone know a site where I can buy a sample? Please help me!!

Mirrors and photographs

When buying a mirror, smaller is cheaper – I bought four 30x30cm mirrors for $9.99 at IKEA (online here), and staggered them. Then, I used them as a backing/frame for photos I had printed at WalMart and London Drugs for really decent prices (If I bought a frame for each, it would have probably totalled around $50-$150, depending on the frame). If you’re doing a photo collage, buy as few frames as possible, or take an hour to mat them yourself!
Also, use what you know: I’m decent with photography and photoshop, so instead of spending a bunch of cash on these photos, I took them on our mountain, photoshopped them, and printed them out. Buying prints can cost anywhere from $5-$50 per print, in general, and there are ten here!

Lastly, take advantage of your budding artist friends. You can sort-of see in this photo are two sketches/paintings at the end. the little one is a brilliant artist, and I hooked her into giving me one of her old sketches (which she was going to throw out) a few years ago. For Christmas that year, she painted them, and I bought frames and put them up. (Frames: $10/each, with a 40% off one item coupon from Michael’s. I bought one the first week and one the second, saving $8 – almost enough for the mirrors, lol!)

Sorry, sorry!

So much to do. Ugh. All I read today was FB and my emails. (Also, my MUA mail! I’m doing my first swap! Excited!!!)

I promise to post when I have time, but that could be anywhere from now ’till the weekend. If I don’t have a chance to post, though, I promise to keep up regular posting with backlog posts :)
