Am I the only one who can't access the site from a computer? I have to use the stupid app. Do not want.

A few times over the last few days pages won't open for me and it's been going super-duper slow. So, you're not the only one.

Not mine. I think a splash of neon is completely fine. We just can't wear it head to toe anymore.

I plan on rocking my neon pink wedges!

Rather than can't I should say... probably should not. Why would we want to? Been there, done that, in elementary school.

2. My straight-leg jeans came in the mail today, and they're totes cute! Not sure if I'm imagining it, but I feel like they sort of balance out my thighs? Either way, I like them!


you SHOULD ONLY BE DRINKING SB COFFEE. *HISS*
IKR? What was I thinking?

Well, this is certainly a splash, that's for sure. Now I have to figure out what the heck to wear them with. I used to wear such plain and colorless clothes that I think I'm taking it a bit overboard now, but gosh there are so many bright and pretty colors I just want to mix them all.

Of course the majority of that is you amazing guys on here - so not too many complete strangers are seeing the shop yet.

And of course - almost everything has been posted to America and hasn't arrived yet so I haven't actually had any feedback yet either.

But I'm pretty chuffed nonetheless!
I want some book earrings. I'm waiting until payday (one week on Monday btw) then you can post something in the UK!

They've just sold out, but don't worry I'm already making more

Ok, I'm trying to figure out the cheapest ice coffee drink I can get at Starbucks. I can get a vanilla iced coffee with cream in it at McDonald's for $2.50 and it's huge. So I should be able to get a large iced vanilla coffee with cream at Sbux and it not cost $5, right?

I am glad that bright colors are everywhere right now. They are pretty, and i was fond of neon. The only neon I could not stand was the bright yellow. Like the 1000 suns, glow in the dark, safety dance, yellow. It was okay on splash painted shoes, mixed with other colors, but anything more could cause seizures.

Yeah, you should be able to! At my store, we don't charge for a flavored syrup in iced coffee, because the cost of a syrup is automatically factored into the price, since a simple syrup comes standard! It's just a matter of substituting, at that point! And I've never charged anyone for half and half... But if they want to charge you, just ask for room and fill it up at the condiment bar.

This! Not standard yellow, not green, but yellow with a splash of lime. Aka, safety yellow.

They don't take time to have a relationship with their kids. They are too busy involved in other things and get their kids involved in other things but avoid spending actual time with them themselves. A lack of relationship means the kids won't feel comfortable talking to their parents, and they certainly won't base their actions on whether their parents will approve of them or not.

Perusing FB, then suddenly, a series of ultrasound images. Those creepy ones that are at like 6 or 7 months.

No one wants to see that unless they know you REALLY well. Please. Just stop.

True, it (it being AEA more so than CG and both being a pleasurable high) has been documented since the 1700's, but it is the most prevalent now. Part of that is due to 'how to' videos that are extremely popular on you tube.

If you look up choking game, you will find autoerotic in related topics, and vice versa. No, it may not start out that way (or be known at that point) but it can lead there. Hypoxia gives boys erections, and the choking game is more popular with boys than girls. Hmmmm... Wonder why.

Iroc, I like to read up on this stuff. I am the one answering the phone when a mother finds her son hanging by his belt. *Ugh! This app!* which is happening all too frequently, when we had no calls like this for years before.

Your office has a door. Let me explain how this works. You push it closed. That doesn't mean you can ***** even louder and no one will hear you. We all hear you. We do. Me and the voices in my head are tired of you and your voices and your fake laugh and your *****ing.

Our resident barista expert here to answer my coffee conundrums. It will be a mouthfull to order, that's for sure. Venti vanilla iced coffee with half and half and oh my word, help me if I also throw half-caff in there. I love Sbux.

OR a venti half caff vanilla iced coffee leave room for half n half if they want to charge me to add it. Heavens. I need to get my iced coffee at home perfected because I need a nap just thinking about ordering all that.

(yes, this is me procrastinating... contemplating my next Sbux order)
