Re: Bed Bugs in Our Hotel Room!

Ugh, this is making me cringe. We have houseguests coming this weekend, and I am just getting the willies thinking about the fact that they stayed in a hotel prior to being here. I actually had planned to pick up a mattress encasement for both beds to replace the worn out mattress pads, so this work...

Longshot of a question RE Hermes and LV items.

I know there are several collectors of LV and Hermes items on here. Would any of you happen to have both an LV Empriente Key Pouch AND an Hermes Dogon COMPACT wallet? I am curious to see them side by side to see the size comparison, and how they look open in comparison. Like I said--long shot. I am ...

Re: Can I get your thoughts on this setting? First time E-ri

Being a HUGE lotr fan, I am so psyched to see this ring come to fruition. And the high colored marquise will be so perfect and stunning in this ring!! I totally agree. A high colored marquise with strong blue...holy crapola. Ha-ha I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks florescence is a cool idea ...

Re: Weight Loss

So I am now about 6 weeks in to that drug, and sticking to my diet. I am right at 31 down. I have had two cheats thru the course of it, where I went to Raisin' Canes for chicken strips, trying to jolt myself by jacking the carbs. I really wanted to go to Drewes for one of them, but since we needed d...

Re: Beauty Products You Are Loving...

I have been lurking on this thread for a few weeks now, and it has been so helpful! A couple of months ago we moved to a much drier climate, and then spring hit (seasonal allergies), and my skin started to get very unhappy very quickly. I started the process of hunting for new products, but my skin...

I just got my Memebox order, just a ton of sheetmasks and two brow products, the brow things are Pony Effect brow gel in Crimson which is basically like a dark red, almost, and it's a great color for when my brows start going off color.

Re: Vatche U-113 with 2.6 ct and other IDJ goodies

Here is my upgrade from IDJ. It is a 2.6 ct I SI1 with SBF. The biggest difference is definitely the cut, I love seeing the arrows and so much more sparkle. I also purchased a platinum u-prong eternity ring with 12 point diamonds. I included photos of it next to my old 7/8 pointer eternity for some...

Re: Can I get your thoughts on this setting? First time E-ri

Congratulations Frodo on your upcoming engagement. I must say I am intrigued with this unique ring idea. I love the idea of this. Is she going to wear a wedding band with the ring? Keep in mind if yes the design should allow for a band. I found a member's ring that would work nicely with a marquise...

Why isn't it possible for her t...

Most of this was already covered, I guess, but I would suggest that you pack food/snacks/drinks because there are a lot of spots along the route where there's literally nothing.
