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.

    • I love all the wedding hairstyle ideas. They all look so elegant and stunning! Can't help but to get excited for my own wedding soon! 😍
    • Being a bridesmaid is more difficult than being a bride. Along with taking care of the bride, you have to take care of everything and everyone else. A bridesmaid is always prepared for any kind of emergency. That my russian bride used a similarly hair style
    • Our skin is a very sensitive organ of the body. Every day it goes through environment changes, temperature fluctuations, pollution, and dirt. While tackling with all of them, it has a great responsibility to secrete oils and sweat to protect itself from the outside world and maintain the body temperature. Basically, at the end of the day it not only gets exhausted, but goes into a dire need of nutrients to replenish its energy. A chemical product may give your skin instant glow, but it becomes a crutch. It makes our skin dependent upon chemical based products so much that if the product is not used, the skin starts falling into the worst conditions like dryness, acne, excess oils etc. Hence, plant based skin care brands are emerging to bring you a better option that will replenish all the natural oils and nutrients of your skin and make it naturally healthy. The natural and plant-based skin care products do not have harmful toxins that your body might intake through the epidermis’ habit of absorbing whatever is applied on it. A product like – the rejuvenator dry oil emulsion is made only of natural ingredients like apple stem cell, natural oils and herbs. After a long day, they provide your skin hydration, phytonutrients, and boost cell protection and collagen. Intake of these products through the skin is completely safe because they share the same biological chemistry as our bodies and blend in.

    • I suppose it’s an indication of little I used to think about sleep that it never occurred to me my sleeping position was in anyway abnormal. I fall asleep on my right hand side then often sleep on my stomach, head to one side if I wake up during the night. Turns out only about 7% of the population do this.   But is there a ‘best side’ to sleep on? The jury seems to be out but there are pros and cons to each sleeping position   If you sleep on your back (which I rarely do) it’s apparently good for your spine and preventing acid reflux but you are more likely to snore. On the other hand it may “maintain perky breasts” according to this article on the CNN website. (Probably not if you’ve had a couple of kids, I’d suggest)   Sleeping on your side – right or left – apparently makes it easier to breathe and helps to avoid heartburn and acid reflux. It also tends to be the most comfortable position if you’re pregnant, especially with a body pillow. However curling up in a foetal position is not good for your neck or spine.   Some experts say you’re better to sleep on your right hand side if you have a cardiac condition as it puts less stress on the heart. On the other hand sleeping on your left may be better for your liver and kidneys.   Sleeping on your front can put strain on your neck though this can be alleviated if you only have one or no pillows. (According to the Better Sleep Council this position makes me brash, outgoing, and very uncomfortable with criticism!)   On the other hand a recent survey came up with the finding that sleeping on the left of the bed (which I invariably do) makes you more cheerful and positive – but not as financially well off as those who sleep on the right. According to the ... er... Daily Mail.   In the absence of any consensus it seems to me that there’s no reason to change your sleeping position if you sleep well or haven’t been advised to alter it by your doctor. On the other hand if you sleep badly – or snore loudly – it could be worth trying to make a change.    So what are you – a side, a back or a stomach sleeper and have you ever managed to change the way you sleep? Read more information about the best mattress for sleeping. Good luck!
