I have a serious problem

The first step is admitting, they say. So here I am, admitting, that I am a shopaholic.
There must be some application for shopaholics, like the Internet nannies that keep kids away from pornographic sites. I need a program that will keep me away from eBay, etsy, BlueFly, etc.!

Or something like this would happen:

When the package arrives, I'll be very, very happy for a short while.

Wouldn't you? When you see this and it's all yours?
Then a few minutes later, I just start hyperventilating. Panicking about where I should hide it! Panicking about going bankrupt! "OH GOD OH GOD I JUST PROMISED MY BOYFRIEND I WOULDN'T BUY ANYTHING THIS MONTH! Did I really need that Slanket?! DID I? OH GOD. I'm going bankrupt! I'm going to have to beg in the streets! OH GOD. I won't be able to eat Godiva chocolates anymore. OHMYGOD." And a million more OHMYGOD's.

So here I am proposing that I will not go shopping until I've worn everything in my closet. And you, yes, you will help me make sure I don't go shopping. I promise to be honest and tell you everytime I give in and buy something, but you have to promise to give me that look of disapproval, complete with head-shaking. Ok? Deal? Deal!

Fuck. My card won't go through. I just need this weight watchers cookbook. I promise, this will be the last purchase of the month! I promise!

Disappointed by

This is what I bought:

And this is what I got:

As you can see, it looks like a cheap knock off of what I thought I bought. First of all, I was expecting the shoulder part to reach my elbow, but well, it's obviously too short to even reach half my arm. Second of all, why is the second hem diagonal?! In the picture, it's straight and it covers that waistband. I don't even understand this. And lastly, WTF is this big ribbon doing on the waist. Is it just me or is there really no ribbon on the picture on ASOS's website? I mean, I could just be imagining it, right? No, I'm pretty sure there is no ribbon on the waistband on the original picture.

Most of the time, if I get items like this, I would just toss it aside, but this one costs £75.00! SEVENTY FIVE POUNDS! You'd expect it to be perfect right?

Now, I could just return it right? Here's the problem. I already removed the tag because I was so damn excited to put it on, only to notice all the differences from the original. I am now e-mailing ASOS to see what they can do about this. But right now, I am just disappointed as hell.


Offense #2:
They e-mailed me asking me to scan my credit card, driver's license, and credit card statement. I told them that I am studying abroad so I cannot scan my credit card statement, but I sent them a screen capture of the bank's online account summary of my credit card.
Somehow they do not seem to get how I cannot scan my credit card statement. DUH. I am studying abroad. I can't exactly leave school to go home to scan my credit card statements, can I?

Offense #3:
So fine, I scan stuff and attach them to the reply. What happens? They reply saying that I did not attach anything to the e-mails I sent them. So I e-mailed them again with the same attachments. They replied saying that there are no attachments on that e-mail either. Hmmm, let me see.

I see attachments on the sent e-mail. Do you see it too?
Should it be my problem that their system somehow cannot see the attachments?

I don't know what to do with ASOS anymore. Has anyone else been disappointed by them?

The Liberty Way to Tie a Scarf

Liberty of London and adorable scarf stylist Lauranne teaches you a variety of ways to tie a scarf here.

These two are my favorite:

Shattered Nails

Here's a nice and cheap alternative to Katy Perry's Black Shatter - Yashali Nail Polish. It does the cracked pattern by just applying it as a top coat, and it comes it different colors.

Here's me using China Glaze's Classic Camel and 17's Exquisite for the bottom layer, and Yashali Nail Polish in White for the top layer.

I don't know if I want one. I started getting confused when I saw this. It's just... It's just so... special.
