I am wondering if you got my request for a scarf earlier? I posted a while ago, but didn't see my name on your updated list. Thanks a lot! 

On another note, i am wondering how you made the squid and the scarf? I like crafting a lot, but not so talented at it myself. Have you considered writing a guide/tutorial? I would love to learn!

I can if someone needs me to but because of the amount of requests I will not send out PMs to everyone. I will tag people in the shipment waves posted here but it is just too many to send out individually.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the mailbox....

As today is the last day of shipping, all those on squid waitlist will not be receiving a squid. Your scarves will be mailed out.

@Tweakabell  thank you so much!  I am happy with a scarf as I knew the squid was a long shot - so time consuming ~ you really are talented.  I will post a pic of the scarf when I get it - thank you again and Merry Christmas!

    • Have you heard about the Beauty DNA test?  Isn't anything new to you? I discovered one of the beauty articles talking about Beauty DNA test. It said a  test could customise a skincare routine based on our Genetic ( sounds personal in my opinion )   I did   order a kit online.  ( many companies offer the test) ,and my package is on its way.   I will give you guys an update soon about how I do the test and what results I  get. Anyway, If some of you have tried the test yourself, please share with me. Thank You        
    • Hi. I really like to watch how the model girls are preparing for casting and how everything is arranged from the inside. Now I am also studying in more detail all the main points and you can also look at our website. Here are interesting details from the life of super models from the African continent.
    • It's too bad the serum didn't work out as well as you expected. Have you tried diluting it in your toner or moisturizer?
    • this 5 product most sell on amazon  LilyAna Naturals Retinol Cream Moisturizer. COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch. Differin Gel.  Thayers Witch Hazel Toner Areno Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
    • I saw this DIY mascara on Pinterest and it made me wonder how many people actually DIY their makeup. Lip scrub, I've tried before and it was fine. How about you?
