    @Janson, I could post pictures of my hand right now to make you feel better about yours, but they're kind of gross and might qualify as disturbing medical photos. So just know that your hands look better than mine!

    I went out with 200,000 won (a little under 200 USD) to buy an outfit for St. Patrick's Day and some new makeup per your recommendations.

    Instead I ended up buying a silk dress for 150,000. I am bad at makeup shopping. Although I did get a festive outfit for the weekend.

    Hey so I know it's not the right thread really but

    Any suggestions or ideas for how I can get the word out to get this baby blanket sold (see: crochetitaintso.tumblr.com )? I need someone who is more Internet famous than me to tell people about it

    You know since we're talking about etsy and stuff

    Depends on what you are shipping and how you are shipping it. First Class Intl with USPS tends to be reasonable.

    Hah. You think that's bad?

    I have spent $70 on shipping for SS before. With it weighing just over a kilogram.

    Australia Post only offers two options for shipping: really fast or really slow. Nothing in between. So I could've paid maybe $20 to get it there in 3 months OR I pay $70 to get it there in a week to 2 weeks.

    Australia sucks. Shipping out of it is a way bigger pain in the ass than shipping into it. :C

    That's the truth

    I have an acquaintance that dyes yarn in NSW and while I'd love to buy a ton of it from her I just can't justify the shipping

    do you guys have any other bag shops you'd recommend on Etsy?

    there are just SO MANY of them

    I like the look of some of the tippythai ones better than the bayan hippo ones, but I mean... any stores you guys quite like, hit me

    I need a new bag for work as my bootleg Coach bag (which is about 5 years old now) is falling apart

    hooray! \o/

    the prices with Tippy and with the Hippo are all great, maybe up to $50 each for a big bag?

    can I say that shopping online with an Australian salary (even a social worker's salary!) is AWESOME

    hey cabsy, you should check out the new gellac-type polish. lasts for weeks w/o chipping!

    My sister actually took me to get a gel manicure - no fake tips, just the gel coat on my nails. I'm pretty hard on my nails so even that is showing a little bit of wear and it's not even been a week! Looking at how quickly my nails grow though actual gel polish instead of just the thick clearcoat would drive me insane because I have visible growth already and it's only been since Tuesday.

    Yes, my sister introduced them to me too! I get just a french manicure w/ clear polish; the grow-out isn't noticeable & it looks so nice & clean :)

    i want to go to there

    I think as soon as I have an official job lined up (since I'm looking for something after my graduation in May) I'm going to celebrate with buying several different bags.

    They're handy for commuting. And pretty.

    I never thought I would like purses/bags so much.

    Yay Muse! I'd be interested in swaps if I actually had anything to swap ;)

    And I do like TippyThai's designs better than BayanHippo's; I just know how superbly constructed and practical BayanHippo's are! But as WaM says, they both have excellent reviews.

    I've been obsessing over tippythai bags for at least a year, I bet - I just haven't pulled the trigger because I hate spending money on bags and wallets for some reason (no compunctions on spending money on clothes and shoes, although I have no expendable income right now so nothing new there either!)

    by the way, thank you to everyone who replied about matte finish polish, I am psyched to find some and try it out.

    here's another shop like hippo/tippythai: sineminugur

    a little more expensive/graphic: peskycatdesigns

    It has been across the world with me, I've used it for school and for work, and I've had it a year and a half and still think it looks pretty good! No snapping/fraying like I've had with other bags.

    I kinda want a nice bag for work (I currently have a dinky backpack). Somewhere between an over the shoulder thing and a brief case. But I don't like the black ones I've seen. Which means I'd need to buy a brown one which means I'd need to buy new shoes (and belt) but because I wear out shoes so fast (I was going through old pairs once every four to five months) I don't really want to spend a ridiculous amount of money in a pair of shoes, just so I can have a bag I like.

    I have never matched my bag to my shoes

    or matched anything, really! Gosh that would be expensive.

    I mean, it's one of those things I'd like to do, along with bringing back gloves and hats (actually I do have a lot of hats...), and I'd love more jewellery and I'd love to have better styled hair but in the end I have to face up to the fact that I lack the money and time necessary for such things.

    okay you guys inspired me to finally pull the trigger on these tippythai bags I've wanted for so long!

    http://www.etsy.com/transaction/75405205 (in charcoal/dark purple instead of black/green)

    and

    http://www.etsy.com/transaction/75405204 (with a maroon lining instead of yellow)

    shipping is so expensive, I figured I should combine and get a tiny discount

    Ahhhh WaM that first bag is adorable! I want it!

    This is the bag I currently covet as my spring purse:

    from A*Land, my favourite shop in Korea

    It is just

    so

    cute


    I also like this one, though.

    also, because I hate money, I went to lush today to set myself up for a bath bomb + face mask + wine kind of night

    the lady sold me on the cupcake mask for my blackhead issues - it is basically a tub of chocolate frosting, but it does make you look like you have just covered your face with your own poop

    then I got home and the serum @Usagi mentioned had arrived

    and now I am liquored up and my skin is so incredibly soft from head to toe mmmmmmmmmm

    lush is becoming my go-to after a stressful day
