To start with, I got a couple more LaLaLoopsy blind bags and booster of Pokemon cards! The LaLaLoopsies have since sold out, which makes me sad since I really wanted some more.
Let's see, after that I ordered some make-up from Sephora.com.
I also order some other things online. Lately, I've started crocheting again. I do have an etsy shop, but there has been nothing in it for ages just because their fees are a little ridiculous and I hate using paypal. Since it's been a while since I crocheted, it's been a while since I purchased yarn. So I had to buy more yarn! I tend to go for pretty middle of the road yarns; I REFUSE to use any Red Heart yarn since their quality is just awful. I started out crocheting with their "Super Saver" yarn (which is the worst yarn money can buy), but after I got more experienced, I moved on to softer and better yarns! I very rarely crochet with actual wool since it's so expensive, so I usually use acrylic yarns. Vanna's Choice is my favorite line of yarn since it's pretty reasonably priced and comes in a wide variety of colors. Or at least it did, until Joann's decided to pare down the colors of Vanna's Choice Baby that they carried in store. I like to make food-themed accessories, and Vanna's Choice Baby has some of the best colors to replicate cake and frosting. And most of the color I use are now only available online. So I ordered some!
I also went to the store and purchased some other colors of yarn from the regular Vanna's Choice line.
After much deliberation, I decided to order more magazines from Japan (despite the fact that my first order hasn't even shipped yet. It says the cat bag should become available 2/9, even though it originally was 1/31, so hopefully it will ship soon after that. And since I picked SAL, I'll still have longer to wait...). My decision was influenced by the fact that I had to get my pre-order for the GLB Vol. 47 in by Feb 6.
I ordered the March issue of KERA, the...Feb? issue of egg (this one was more out of curiosity; I never read an issue of egg before), the GLB issue #47, a Q-Pot e-mook with a tote bag and little pouch (this one I'm a bit concerned about; it's from 2011 I believe and is listed as shipping out in 1-3 weeks. I don't mind waiting since the GLB doesn't come out until the end of Feb, but I get the feeling the e-mook is going to go "out of print" and I won't be able to get it), and finally a Liz Lisa e-mook with a My Melody x Liz Lisa collab tote (I love Liz Lisa and I love My Melody! I've been eyeing this for a while and decided to just finally get it). The one hitch in my magazine order, is that I got basically bullied into signing up for Verified by Visa, this bizarre identify theft protection program offered by Visa. I've been asked to sign up for it before, but I've been able to opt out. I guess you're only allowed to opt out 2-3 times before you're forced to sign up for it. I was super scared that it was some kind of phishing scam (since they make the sign up look as scammy as possible) but after a but of research, I'm about 95% sure it was legit. Still, I don't like being forced to use "optional features" and it seems more likely you'll get your identity stolen using this program than if you didn't use it.
Almost done! I also convinced my husband to take me to Wal-Mart this week so I could pick up...
I also picked up some My Little Pony blind bags! They were from a series I hadn't seen before, but I get the feeling it may be Wal-Mart exclusive. They had the Wonderbolts symbol on the bags and you have a chance to get a Wonderbolt!
FINALLY, I got another package today! I had ordered my husband's Valentine's Day gift last week, but I didn't want to spoil the surprise so I didn't post it. The package came today, which is a relief since I had forgotten to put in my apartment number when I entered my address. I ordered a couple extra little things since, if you're going to order something from Japan, you might as well order more!
WHEW. That got pretty long! I actually went and got a couple things from Forever21 as well, but I decided to not take any pictures since I just got a couple ivory colored camis and a scarf that was on sale (that's super huge and fluffy and a cute teal/grey color). Hopefully, I don't put off my next post for quite this long so I don't end up rambling on forever!
Thanks for reading!
