Dear Etsy Sellers

Dear Etsy Sellers,

I’m gonna try to keep this short since I only have a few things to complain about.

First of all, I’d like to say that most of you have some RIDICULOUS prices for what you’re selling. Not all of you! But a lot of you. Who in their right mind is about to drop $35,000 on a 2 carat diamond ring on Etsy? Really? Or more than $3 on something made of brass or plastic or resin or otherwise worthless. Let’s not fool ourselves here – if you want people to pay high prices, make good products out of high quality materials.

This ring is $35,000. You’d think I’d understand that, being in fine jewelry. I don’t. It’s not even like pure gold. 18 karats? Shitty.

Secondly, all of you who have those illegal BNS things and illegally email other users and harass them to be in the BNS’s need to stop. Like, now. I don’t fucking want 3 emails a day from your ass. Who are you? I don’t care about your shit, you’re not GAP telling me I get to save 40% on something I want, so don’t email me. Thanks.

Thirdly, I still think the majority of you guys are buttholes. I continue to find that many of you hold on to your “trade secrets” like it’s a sin to utter a word about them. I’m not trying to steal your business. I just want to know where I can find assloads of crystals for prices lower than your retail ones. Why is that so hard to divulge? Like, maybe I just want to have buckets of quartz and bismuth. 

That’s really about it. I don’t expect things to change, but boy, wouldn’t it be nice?

Nail Polish and All-Around Half-Carat Diamond Rings.

I’ve had the add a new post window open for like an hour already and I still can’t figure out what exactly to write about, so I’m writing about my inability to come up with anything worthwhile.

I totally fell down in my Blowfish Vance booties today cause I stepped on a steep crack near my car. I scratched up my knee a bit, but otherwise I’m okay.

Last night I took my family out to eat chinese and we all stuffed ourselves. I’m not used to eating a lot [believe it or not] so a plate of food and then a plate of various desserty things that I only ate half of was way too much. I felt like I was going to explode.

We dropped by CVS after cause it’s right next door to the restaurant we went to, and I picked up 3 new Wet ‘N Wild fast dry nail polishes. I’m a happy camper – I got this beautiful sparkly orange, a nice, rich vibrant blue, and some mixed glitter clear polish that is more like a top coat, in my opinion. I’ve got the orange on my nails right now, and it looks like sprinkled diamonds. I love it.

Also, Women’s Wear Daily posted this Badgley Mishka wedding dress on Facebook, and I wanted to share it because I think it’s absolutely gorgeous. Simply, chic, but stunning.

And speaking of wedding dresses, today at work, I had nothing to do so I was looking at Verragio engagement and wedding rings and they have some really intense designs. Like really intricate. They kind of reminds me of like…terrace fences. You know? This also led me to look at De Beers engagement and wedding rings and they have some really expensive stuff. I particularly enjoy the $50,000 all-around half carat diamonds ring. As in, a bunch of giant half-carat diamonds all the way around. Definitely my favorite.
