>Pissed-Off with One eBay Seller!

>It’s an open book than I am an eBayer for quite a couple of years now. I never encountered problems with any of the transactions I had in the past. The sellers were very professional and the items were shipped immediately after the payment was made.

I had my first purchase this year at eBay. I paid online via my Visa card. After I won the bid, I made the payment thereafter and I also informed the seller that payment has been made. It was a Saturday. I was taken aback when on Sunday, I received a message from her asking for my payment. I calmly informed her that the payment was already made Saturday and I even attached my proof of payment. She immediately responded and acknowledged my payment. She further told me that she will ship the item the next day, Monday.
Monday and Tuesday came, there was no item delivered on my doorstep. I never heard a word from the seller, too. Not a word. No nothing. Wednesday, I already can’t contain my annoyance. I asked her via email where was my item. She then responded that she was waiting for my reply. According to her, she sent an email asking for my shipping address. True enough, she DID sent an email on that day AFTER I’ve asked her for my item. There was no email sent prior to Wednesday asking for my shipping address because if there has been, I should have immediately responded.
In short, if I didn’t asked for the item, I will be waiting for nothing. After the item was received on a Friday, I gave this seller a negative feedback. I didn’t like the way she communicated with me. She’s not prompt in responding and I felt like she never cared for her clients. I have always been a good payer and I deal with the sellers professionally. The negative feedback wasn’t made to attack her personally. It was made only based on my personal experience with her while I was doing the transaction. I’d like to teach her a lesson and I don’t want my experience repeated with other clients.
After sending a negative feedback, she asked for me to retract and revise the negative feedback I gave her. I’ve got until February 4 to modify it. I know her online business will be affected if I don’t modify my feedback.
Now tell me. Does she deserve a positive feedback from me?

>The Perfect Wedding Ring

>

Choosing the perfect wedding ring for couples is as tough as preparing the entire wedding needs. It requires a lot of thought, too. After all, the wedding band will be worn by the couple for their entire lifetime, that is, if they stay married forever, lol!
The following should be taken into consideration when choosing the wedding band:
  1. Budget– How much can the couple afford? The material will then depend on how much the couple can spend for their weddings rings.
  2. Material– Based on the budget, the couple can choose from a wide variety of choices. The most popular is still the 14K-18 K gold rings. Gaining popularity are the white golds. Platinum, titanium, silver and diamond can be included in the couple’s choices as well. Remember the 4Cs here: Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat!
  3. Style- It can range from traditional to the more elaborate ones with beads.

>The Perfect Bridal Hairstyle

>

When my friend married in 2006, she asked me to be her maid of honor. I was a little hesitant because it was my first time. But I can not say NO entirely to her because she left me with no choice, LOL!
Before the wedding day, she told me that our hairstyle would look good on us because she did an extensive research as to what hairstyle would look gorgeous on her and the entourage. I took her word for it. True enough, we looked all stunning and gorgeous with all our beautiful hairdo!
I got curious as to what preparations are actually needed to be done in choosing the perfect hairstyle for the bride. I found some helpful tips from Wedding Flowers. Here they are:

  • Do your homework by browsing through bridal magazines and checking out the hundreds of wedding hairstyles available online.
  • Make sure that the hairstyle that you will choose will complement, instead of outshine, the dress that you are wearing. For example, if you are wearing an A-line bridal gown which is extremely simple yet elegant, a similar hairstyle is required. A classic French twist or soft curls framing your face should do the trick.
  • Decide whether you will do the hairstyling yourself, or if you will hire a stylist. If you want to have a do-it-yourself hairstyle for your wedding day, make sure to practice first and choose a style which is easy to create. On the other hand, if you will use a stylist, make sure that it is someone who specializes in bridal hairstyles. Set up an appointment weeks before your wedding so that you can try out some flattering bridal hairstyles.
  • Don’t do anything drastic with your hair – like cut, perm, color or highlight – approaching six months into your wedding. You may not like the results, and it’s always more difficult to correct a bad haircut when your wedding is barely a month away.

Here is a quick list of the bridal hairstyles that you can go for:

  1. Elegant updo
  2. Simple twist
  3. Chignon
  4. French twist
  5. Modern twist
  6. Classic curls
  7. Braided updo
  8. Soft curls



>Are You Stylish?

>

I was  browsing at Blogthings when I found one quiz which was too hard to resist. I then found myself answering some of the questions. And the result: 


You Are Super Stylish



You’ve got style, no doubt about it. You always look your best.

You are on top of trends, and you carefully pick what works for you.

You dress for the occasion, and you never wear anything inappropriate.

You only own the best clothing and accessories. You know how to make an impression.

Is that really me? I really never find myself that fashionable but I always love clothes and accessories. I love to dress for comfort but it’s never too bad to dress for fashion as well πŸ˜‰

>A Beautiful Gift

>

I love pretty dresses! I was very happy when my brother’s girlfriend, Sarah, went home and gave me a mini-halter dress for a present. Isn’t that sweet? The dress is a tri-color one bearing the rasta trademark red, yellow and green. The color of Rasta is the color of Ethiopia, the Promised Land in Jamaica. Reggae music lovers I’m sure knows about these facts. The rasta colors are RED, that stands for the blood of the heroes, GREEN for Jamaican land and YELLOW, for the blessings that awaits the Rastas.

I can’t wait to wear this dress in one of the Kuerdas gigs πŸ˜‰

>Anniversary Presents Part 2

>Apart from the customized couple shirts, I had a bracelet made for my Prince. It is customized, too! There was an engraved text which says:

I’m Yours Forever
Lainy


In December, we have been on the look out for a nice looking bracelet that would fit my Mahal’s wrist. But unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find one to my liking. So I decided to have it premade.

I have been preparing all the stuffs I’m going to send My Prince today because Bro. Gary Hodgkinson, a brethren from the locale of Western Sydney is already packing his things up and is leaving for Sydney on the 28th of January. There wasn’t much to send him though because I have been warned by My Prince not to spend so much because he will be here soon, haha! And aside from that, he is just a simple guy πŸ˜‰

>I Am Super Stylish!

I did nothing tonight, I just stared in front of the PC point blank. When I realized i was looking like a zombie,LOL, I decided to browse over Blogthings and took a simple test.
Why is it that the result of the test did not surprise me at all? Hahaha!

>Anniversary Presents Part 1

January is our love month. I prepared some presents for my Prince. I have been thinking of what could be the best gift for My Prince. One thing that came to mind was a couple shirt. This came very handy because of Rosilie and her hubby of A Closet of Limitless Adventure. Their brilliant ideas were simply amazing! I would like to thank them for the efforts they’ve put in just to come up with these lovely couple shirts.
