I believe that NM is adding a bunch more spots in December. If you are interested, email and ask to be added to the wait list. It's such an amazing sub. I am so glad that I jumped on it the first month it was changed to an actual subscription.

It's 12.90 a month. She currently has a wait list going, and not many people get in on the VC (no one's dropping their sub). I'm not sure if she'll change things with the new year though. Most of us were lucky and grabbed a spot before it really took off.

 

Others please chime in if I'm missing anything! :)

Do you know how she's working the waitlist?  Should I send her an e-mail to try to add my name?  

ETA:  I sent her a message, thanks for letting me know about a waitlist!

Yep, send her an email letting her know you'd like to be added to the list. :)

Oh, snagging a VC sub!  The memories!  I got in back in August, aka the very first month it was a sub, six minutes -- per my PayPal receipt -- after it was supposed to go live for signups.  I remember the insanity:  PayPal wasn't set up correctly, so we had to wait what seemed like *forever* for it to be fixed.  Checking Facebook messages, it was actually six minutes.  Uh...  So I guess I got in literally the first *minute* it was available.  I was actually part of the crush the month before (the second month it even existed.  Still annoyed I missed Calling Corners!) that made them decide to change it to a sub instead of just a once-a-month LE set.

@@Bflopolska I tried to file a claim, and Etsy won't let me - because I have to wait two days from the "shipped" date, and Debaucherous keeps changing the "shipped" date - surprise, surprise - every two days.

 

Honestly if it were a time thing, it wouldn't matter. But the fact she ignores my convos and does these little things to avoid my filing with Etsy makes me super, duper suspicious. I will take a refund, that's fine, just no more with the games.

 

I'm sorry for the rest of you waiting on shipments, too, especially if it is for a gift. None of the reviews I read ever indicated this sort of trouble with getting product, so I am really surprised and disappointed. :(

I had heard some rumblings about these problems in a few blog reviews. Basically just that she suddenly disappears from conversations, and stops communicating. That alarmed me, so I thought I would torture myself and order to review the products.

I don't think anyone has posted this, but here is the ultimate indie Black Friday sale guide, courtesy of our own @@Kelly Silva /Evolution of a Foodie :)

 

http://www.evolutionofafoodie.com/2014/11/indie-weekends-black-fridaycyber-monday.html

I mentioned this over on reddit, but for you guys as well: I added the deals and new releases for companies I've either personally ordered from or would be willing to order from in the future. There may be some companies sales info missing because I don't know enough about the company, or I would not personally recommend buying from them. The guide will be updated throughout the week  :)

I got my HoG order today!!

I need hearth in EVERY thing!! I was only able to pick up a whipped soap but I definitely need a pumpkin butter! I need money on my bank account a sap!

 

I also picked up a Horseman bubbling scrub, just to try and why oh why did I wait!? It smells so good. I thought I would have hated it.

 

Also! My free sample was wintervale!! I was s bummed I missed out on it when I placed my order! It smells good.

Same with Trioka from the permanent line

 

So excited for the smellies. Off to shower!

 

(I get way too excited over this stuff)

 

I got mine today too! *on a natural high*

After talking myself out of it forever, I just ordered a bunch of sample perfume oils from Haus of Gloi...I have not yet ventured into the world of indie perfumes, and I've been eyeballing them since you guys first started talking about them! Grabbed samples of most of the Yule scents that were still available and a few others. Pretty excited!

Grr, the worst part is that I want to product soooo bad. She could seriously, probably yank me around until Christmas, at least, if not New Year. It isn't until mid-January that I put my holiday stuff away. I will force a refund if I have to, but I really just want my order shipped! :angry:

Tried out a new indie company called Corvus Cosmetics. Ordered on the 16th and just received it today, so I'm pretty excited to try out my new colors! It's a collection inspired by Futurama. Anyway this will keep me pretty occupied until my Shiro order comes in :)

Pretty packaging with a nice handwritten note and business card.

Colors L-R: Champaggin?, Bite My Shiny Metal @$$, Clobberella, Smizmar,

Fine Jamaican Bacon, Good News Everybody, Orange Joe, Zero G Jugs,

Ice Queen (free sample), Why Not Zoidberg?

 

 

I went ahead and got the sample sizes for the whole collection. I'm not big on green or blue eyeshadow on myself, but I figured if I got the rest of them, I might as well just get the whole thing.

I've been thinking about it, and here's why I call bullshit on Debaucherous claiming it's too hard to get to the post office:

https://tools.usps.com/go/ScheduleAPickupAction!input.action

 

You literally don't have to leave your house for this.

I'm not sure if she's just flakey or what... I did receive my item, which makes no sense, because I ordered when all of these other ladies ordered, AND my order was just one item. Most of these ladies ordered quite a few items. It's upsetting, her items sound great, but it's not worth all the drama I'm sure!

 

What you posted above definitely makes me upset, I hadn't even thought about that! She has 4 kids, all of which are in school but one (she's blaming them for not being able to go to the PO regularly)...I make it to the post office all the time with my toddler, not sure how that should be a factor for her when she's running this type of business.

Okay, I had to go way, way back (two pages, dang) but I want to put this out there. I don't care if someone else orders from Debaucherous, and likes it. I don't care if they come here to talk about it, because I have always felt like this is a safe place to express opinions both bad and good (where I feel like Reddit is a slaughterhouse, but I've never travailed the IMAM forum) so I don't think it is fair to say that anyone should stifle their opinion just because not all members share it. If you feel uncomfortable, put it under a spoiler tag, maybe? I don't know, just trying to keep the flow gowing! :P

 

BUT I would say that my negative opinion of DB does not, at this point, extend to the products. So although I would not personally purchase from that shop again, I would be fine (thrilled, even) to recieve the products as a gift! Plus I think it's silly for someone to turn away a gift they didn't have physical or ethical contraints against, so.

 

Just my two cents! This is my favorite forum on the board, so I definitely don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable because of me! :sdrop:

@@Shalott noooooo don't even say that!! I love that I can read the good and the bad here. Reality is that 90% of indie companies are amazing, but there are definitely some duds. I'd rather know what companies are good to order from than waste my money. I love hearing everyone's reviews--good, bad, or indifferent.

Thanks, ladies! I know how it feels though - I really love Impulse Cosmetics, but I don't bring them up a lot because there are quite a few here who didn't like the brand. For me, it has nothing to do with comfort only that I don't want to ramble on about something no one cares for, LOL, but I'd be so sad to find out that there were members not saying something because they felt like they couldn't. :flowers: Ahh, I am totally babbling because I've been up since 4am, but I have good intentions! I promise! :lol:

I had contacted Fyrinnae about a missing item in my order and to confirm that the sample I got was a sample and not an incorrect product.  I got a response within less than 30 minutes they would send out my missing product AND another sample!  I did not ask for one and feel bad as the item that was missing from my order was under $5.  Happy with the excellent CS and the fact that I will now have products to try!

 

 

Also excited that NM posted an update that they hope to be caught up on shipping by mid week.  Looks like my gift for Secret santa will make it in time!  Yay!  I want to start wrapping but will work on crafty things now.

I'm so excited that NM is catching up on shipping!  It felt like she was shipping Halloween orders FOREVER (and she probably felt that way too!).  My order was placed on 11/3 so I'm hoping to get shipping soon.  It's for a gift so I'm super flipping out anyway because I neeeeeeed it soon!   :w00t:

I so love this month's VC!!  Amazing colors.  I think the only one that I am not thrilled with is Compton.  Team Eric for sure - my sookie & eric shadows were the two nestled in the coffin - lol

 

I really liked mittens for michael as well.

I am on the waiting list for the VC and I hope I get in soon.

 

I also NEED to get my hands on GDE OTM again. I had it for 8 months and I miss it dearly, but I'm always at work when they go up for sale, now :(

Agreed, one of the best things about MUT is that I know I can always come read honest opinions on anything, good and bad. It's why I hate when people post things like "I don't even want to post here anymore because people are complaining, can't we just be positive?" Because I use this forum to make SO MANY of my purchasing decisions! Please, everyone, always share your bad experiences, it might save someone from a really frustrating time. :)

    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books. 
    • HEY! You dont seem fat to me. I believe you look wonderful. But still if it feels like you need to loose weight then i can give you some easy tips: You should go on a calorie deficit diet. Also start intermittent fasting that is eating only for 7 to 8 hours a day just. I know you dont like working out. But try doing something what you like in order to boost this process. A walk or dance or playing a sport etc. Its up to you completely but just give it a thought. And last one PATIENCE. This is the smallest required by all but the tuffest to follow . This weight loss wont just happen in a day. It may take time. That may be long too but you need to keep yourself focused in order to achieve what you want so YOU SHOULD KEEP GOING. ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR JOURNEY!
