Little Black Bag

Recommended Posts

After you take the quiz once you can also go back and just switch what type of bag you are. It's down at the bottom just click through them.

Yea I forgot you could change it at the end. I was asking her because one of the bags she likes I got as one of my picks when I started in fact it was almost my pick lol. I got the houndstooth or quilted bag I can't remember now because I've changed it since.

I received shipment confirmation on my first bag the same day the shipping label was generated (the day after trading ended, although it ended on a Sunday, so I don't know whether it shipped the day after because that's their standard turnaround time or because it was a Sunday), although it didn't hit the FedEx system until the following day.  Have you checked your spam folder?  I've had shipping notificaitons go there, and I haven't discovered it until after the packages arrived.

Aw that sucks. I'm sorry you can't get them. People have them for trade if you want to take the chance but I could completely understand not wanting to risk not getting what you like in your bag. If there hadn't been something worth picking from my picks I wouldn't have subbed either.

I'll probably end up subbing next month, it looks like everything has been taken at this point. There are only 4 bags/clutches total to choose from :(

If I picked something i'm semi-interested in and don't end up liking my bag in the end (after trading) can I decide to not get the bag?

I don't think so. I think once you open your bag it's a purchase but they apparently do refunds/returns on items but I'm not sure how that would work it says they credit it to your next bag. This is my first month.

I ended up getting a bag anyway haha. There's a clutch I think I could end up really liking...let's hope the trading goes well because one of my items is horrendous and no one is trading me anything that's the same value as it!

I had some things I never thought I'd get rid of. Sometimes I had to trade down and then trade back up or just give it a few days and someone with awful taste will love it and offer you something better biggrin.gif

One thing I have to remind myself:  You might have to bundle something you kind of like with the thing you really don't like and then settle for a lower value than the combined items.  That's actually what I ended up doing, although my items weren't *horrible*.  One of them was just useless to me since it was a candle, and I have *extremely* curious kittens.  I've been through the candle+kitten combo before. The stench of singed whiskers is to be avoided.  The other was a set of coffee mugs that a lot of people kept trying to swap me for (except nothing on offer was anything I wanted), and I did kind of want them so I could take them to work since there's always someone in the office looking for one, but then I ended up offering both of those up together for swap because I really wanted a body oil, and someone went for it.  If I looked at the dollar value, I lost money.  If I look at the fact that I wouldn't be using those two things that I swapped away, I ended up fine.

 

As far as not swapping higher-dollar items, it's probably because those people picked those high-dollar items as their definitely-going-to-get-it item.  I know I got a *ton* of offers for the purse I chose, but I fell in love with that purse, and there was no way I was giving it up for *anything* that they currently have.

Thanks for the tips! Luckily everything I KIND of wanted ended up being traded with me...now it's just a matter of whether something even better shows up!

Ha! I'm one of those weirdos who like the candles. I like my little candle with the deer head on it that I traded a superfluous eyeshadow brush for.

 

And my teal watch and gorjana necklace are awesome. So happy I have a cute watch bc my phone keeps dying when I'm at work for a long day.

I actually REALLY want that watch!! But my wrist is SUPER small...it runs in the family, we all have small wrists for some reason. Do you think the watch would fit me? If you don't mind could you measure how long it is to the first notch? :)

 

I'm debating trading two of my 3 items for it..that's how much I like it! I just want to make sure it will fit!

It was a lot of flippin' trading and for more expensive items people can offer you 2 or more items. I now know for next time the first few days always trade up, even if you don't like the item because the last few days it's much easier to trade down for something you love.

What a great bag!  I need to screenshot mine.  I did finally track all my trades this round.  I'm mostly happy with my bag. No big ticket items but I have a bracelet that I LOVE.

Really, as long as you got something you love and you didn't spend more than you would have at the store then you came out ahead wink.gif Next time I really should track my trades but some of them just happened so fast lol

Nevermind, I found where it kept track of my trades.

 

Edit: Well, most of my trades. That's weird.

Yay! I've already traded up two of my items today :) I traded a bracelet that I was interested in for another one I was even more interested in...and I traded up the Cargo blush stick for the eye duo!

 

There's a bracelet and a necklace I really want i'm hoping to get...but if I end up with what I have then i'm fine too. Everyone wants my clutch though!

 

Clearly i'm way too addicted to this haha

Also, I noticed that some people have a TON. This one girl has 12 items...and they're all pretty good values. How does that happen?!

People sometimes trade multiples to get things they really want. People were trying to trade me 3-5 items when I had my military satchel.

    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
    • Hi I really need som help to find a good foundation. Im 35 years old and when I put on foundation it looks terrible. On the left side I have no makeup but in the right side I have Max factor radiant lift foundation. I still have acne and thats why I want to use foundation..
    • I'm going to have one day a week off of work for a while! I have not had any vacation since I began my job in 2015. Is No Buy worth it if it lets you work less? Maybe! I think so!  My hair has been a disaster, an absolute mess. It just needs better care. It is long, and I don't want to cut it until I use up all my backlog of hair products. It tangles so badly. I can't comb through the tangles, and they just build up into matted sections. It is just awful. Hair products don't help. My hair got really badly tangled and matted this week. My scalp was also irritated from using too much harsh shampoo. I decided to wait an extra day before washing it again, to let the natural oils soothe my dry and itchy scalp. Ironically, the natural oils also allowed me to detangle my hair, even where conditioners won't do it. It still took an hour and 40 minutes to get the tangles out, I kid you not, but at least I was able to do it. It's ironic that the solution to my problem wasn't buying a product, but just leaving my hair alone and letting my body heal itself.  Also I just had a little haul, but don't worry - it's within my No Buy rules. Time to replace my deodorant. I got an Avon Rare Pearls roll on. Three years ago, I got a stack of Rare Pearls sample cards from the Avon lady, and I thought if I got the deo to match, it would finally motivate me to use them up. While I was looking through the Avon site, I saw that Avon has some really pretty new dental care products. I got myself a really pretty pink toothbrush that has special bristles and Himalayan pink salt! I'm excited, because my teeth are bad and need more care, and this will be nice for me. It's been a while since I got a new toothbrush. The Avon lady had a code to get belif samples too - is belif part of Avon now? No - I jut checked - Avon was bought by the company that makes belif, apparently, and also makes History of Whoo! History of Whoo is one of my dream brands, and I've always wanted to try it. (It's an expensive, beautifully packaged Korean line of products that look like they are made for a Korean princess or empress.) Well that was a good guilt free haul! Very interesting and productive No Buy night.  
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.
