  • About Me
    You might remember me from such bliggity blogs, Facey Spaces, and Tweety pages as tampatantrum.com and shutterblog.com. I am the type of mother that not only played classical music, but also Weezer, to my two children in utero. You know, for balance.
  • My Interests
    My hobbies include photography, cooking, dusting the house in a tiara, the OU Sooners football team, and writing. (Not necessarily in that order.) I have a passion for politics, the inability to return e-mails in a timely manner, and an irrational fear of mariachi bands that dates back to childhood.
  • My Occupation
    I am the Paperie Boutique owner and featured columnist (paperieboutique.com), currently on hiatus - and the Buttons and Bows Photography, LLC, owner (buttonsandbowsphotography.com), also currently on hiatus. I was a contributing editor and freelance columnist for Professional Photographer Magazine (ppmag.com) from June 2010 - June 2013.

  1. Thank you - I'm so glad you got yours! I ordered at the very start of the promotion so it sounds like they went back and tightened terms after people started using the promo code en masse. The rep said it was cancelled off several orders besides ours, with no notice sent - you find out when you open the box. I purposely screencapped everything "just in case" which is why I'm getting a gift certificate apology (and I'm glad I did so)! At least my MIL got one in her order. I bought her the LP Glossybox last year and I created some sort of an addict it seems. Really stinks this was going in her birthday gift from us though...
  2. Apologies that I'm sick and behind reading - but was anyone's Neiman Marcus order missing the free La Prairie oil? They tried to argue with my husband today that only $150 purchases or more had it included and the rest were cancelled out. But the thing is, I was ordering it for my MIL (who placed a lower $-amount order AFTER me) and she had it included in hers. So at least she got one - this was for her, too. All they would do for my husband on the phone - since it was part of a birthday present and he was TICKED - is offer to e-mail him a gift certificate. (No amount confirmed to.) We've still yet to receive that. I'm a loyal customer of theirs and I'm VERY upset they're trying to change the terms after the fact. I had screencaps and there was NOTHING that said $150+ and it added to my cart / checkout with no issue whatsoever.
  3. It's just there for pretty's sake. It takes an hour to empty and I'd never be quite that patient!
  4. There's a great Instagram account that posts more Indie sales than I can possibly keep up with each week! http://instagram.com/indiepolish411/ Edit: Not blog sales, but still a good / dangerous link depending on your pocketbook.
  5. You are so lucky! I feel like Charlie Brown looking in his Trick or Treat Bag and saying, "I got a rock." They sent the bed-bound person not one, but TWO boxes of Solace Sunscreen. Even with two boys, we still have sunscreen running out of our ears thanks to all of last year's sub boxes. Sunscreen. In January. Would have been much more appreciated 3 years ago when we lived in Orlando!
  6. I waited until the after Christmas sales to get my Christmas present - this arrived on Friday. I had outgrown my nail polish storage method and wanted something nicer / easier to access. I'm so proud of how everything turned out! I bought an "Apothecary Chest" (in look only, as the mini-drawers are 'cosmetic' and it actually has three large drawers) - and then I moved a mini-storage chest in from my office and placed items like Q-tips, cotton balls, cotton pads, cuticle balms and cuticle pens, etc., in each of those drawers. Everything is right there next to me and organized when I do manis and pedis now... And here are my separate Julep polish storage boxes on a chest next to it... The OCD girl deep inside me is doing back-flips right now!

    New Nail Polish Chest

    Christmas 2014 gift - arrived 01/03/15
  8. Zoya polishes Nori and Loredana are free until 11:59 p.m. EST tonight with $15 purchase and code MOON. You can see the two polishes on their Instagram: http://instagram.com/p/xQShi6QipJ/
  9. I had posted this the other night and it worked for a few people that posted after me - you might try it if you still need one? FA144626 for $20 off $50 Good luck!
  10. Arsenic is a common ingredient as well! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2210884/The-toxic-trade-fake-make-How-counterfeit-cosmetics-containing-dangerous-levels-arsenic-sold-online-unsuspecting-bargain-hunters.html
  11. I just got my LUSH order in, too - what a nightmare. I had to refresh during the checkout process at least 4-5 times. Thankfully I got my confirmation order as well. And if you've missed it, Anthropologie is having a Winter Tag Sale online and you can get an extra 25% off the sales price with code INAFLURRY. A lot of their candles are on sale so I snapped a few up. A couple I sent as gifts earlier in December at $16.00 and $18.00 are now $7.46 and $9.71 with the sale + code, so I grabbed them for myself and a few other goodies!
  12. Merry Christmas everyone! B&BW is sending out the code 10NOW for $10 off $40 online during their "75% off" Christmas clearance sale, but I was able to use FA144626 today for $20 off $50. Happy Merry!
  13. Ugh - I had my order from 12/13 cancelled late tonight because they were out of "Dior Diorific Vernis Golden Shock" and that dropped my order below the $50 threshold for the VIB giftcard, so it just auto-cancelled! Thank goodness I just made Rouge because after I got the e-mail, here on the East coast I had 20 minutes to call in and not have everything totally screwed up. I swapped out the top coat for a bottle of "Diorific Vernis Sparkling Plum" and they helped me redo the order by phone. (And then I had to hit eBay to snag the top coat for more than I planned to pay because apparently it is now sold out everywhere - thanks Sephora!) My VIB Rouge welcome kit was on that order. And thank goodness I didn't lose the ROUGEHAIR perk... I did lose my samples, however, and I had some good ones that I was only able to swap out for decent ones tonight. This wasn't a "jump off a building if I can't get it" gift, but wow - did NOT need that tonight!
