Boycott Nine West

This post is going to be a little bit of a rant so if you don’t want to hear it I suggest you move on.

It’s story time kids! I’m going to tell you a little story of what happened to me with the company Nine West and explain why I’m never shopping there ever again; also why I think Purolator people are dumb and would really like to know what the hell they’re doing.

As I wrote before, I’m going to a wedding, a wedding in the fall so the original shoes that I had for my dress are summer and my feet will be cold since I live in Canada.  A couple weeks before my best friend, my sister and I went to the mall to see what shoes they had, now our mall isn’t that big and doesn’t have many shoe stores. On Sept 9th, 2014 my sister and I decided to go to Square One in Mississauga. We went into every shoe store that the mall offers and I didn’t really find anything I was looking for until I walked into Nine West. I found the perfect shoe so I asked for a size 9. The lady told me that she only had 8 1/2 and 9 1/2, I tried them on anyways. The 8 1/2 was too tight and the 9 1/2 was too big, I needed the size 9. I asked if she had a size 9 in a different colour just so I could see the fit, of course she brought them out and they fix perfectly. For some reason she checks the system to see if she has the colour I want in mine size, turns out she does. She came out with my size and let me put it on when another sales associate says those shoes are on hold until tonight. Lets just pause for a moment, that means someone had these shoes on hold yesterday, never came to get them and that day her 24 hours was up but at night time. The lady that was helping me was nice and said that I could buy them and get them shipped to my house since I couldn’t buy the last pair they had in stock so that’s what I did. She told me the shoes would be at my house in 2 days max. I was happy.

Today is Sept 16th, 2014 and I still have yet to get my shoes.

I was in my room when I decided to call the store to see what was going on, the phone was ringing then all of the sudden just cuts out. I called back 7 times before I went to my sister to help me. My sister called 3 times and we still had no answer from this store, I was officially angry. My sister decided to call head office and see what the hell was going on since we couldn’t get a hold on them, head office asked for my name, email address and the invoice number which lead to nothing, they had no record of my order. They said they would call us back before 5pm with all the details. After my sister got off the phone with them she decided to try the store one more time (keep in mind we called at lunch time so no one would be in the store except whoever was working) for some reason someone answers. My sister yelled her ass off at them and asked what the hell was going on. She looked up in the system my name and it wasn’t there because the girl on the receipt spelt my name wrong. She fixed that in the system even though I will not be going back there. She found my order and said that they have already shipped it to my house but no one was there to come get it. Now I live in a building, you have to buzz up to get a hold of that person just like in every other building, if I don’t answer the buzz it acts like a miss call on my phone and gets logged. I had no missed calls on my phone! My sister said that was bullshit because someone was home and the phone didn’t ring at all. In the end we got the shoes reshipped to my house so I’m expecting them tomorrow. Hopefully.

Purolator. I really want to know what the hell is going on with there heads. Because no one buzzed up to my house this makes me assume this guy drove all the way to Brampton to stand in my lobby, see no one there and then walk back to his car. There was no sticky saying they were here and I missed it, no miss calls, nothing! Does that no make you think he drove here to stand there? I mean really what the fuck? Now because they did that I made a sign with their logo on it saying…

Purolator

Please dial 7752 into the key pad and I will come down to get my package.

Thanks You!

Tomorrow morning my mum is posting that note in the lobby so when they come they no to call me. If they don’t call I will be disappointed in humans. This is an easy task people!

If I do get the shoes I will be happy but I’m still never buying shoes from the company ever again, it was the most stressful thing ever and I’ve never had a problem with any other shoe company. I get shoes shipped from Aldo and Spring all the time, they come the next day no problem.

Let me know what you think or write if you had any problems with those companies!

15 Essentials When Going to a Wedding

Lucky me I get to go to a wedding in less then 2 months and I thought this would be a great thing to write about. Lets get started..

  1. The Dress. Obviously you need a nice dress fit for a wedding! Get a dress that fits the surroundings, if you’re going to a beach wedding, get a dress that flows and bright colour; a church wedding, get a nice fancy dress that still looks amazing; a backyard wedding, I would just get a casual dress and do your hair up nicely, you get my point. Don’t be afraid to reuse a dress from a different wedding because I’m sure as hell doing that. I went to a wedding last year and found a dress that costed $300 but I LOVED it, now I’m going to wear it to this years wedding just changing the shoes.
  2. The Shoes. The shoes need to match with your dress or your accessories. The dress I have is kind of hard to change the colour so my shoes will match my dress. If you’re wearing lets say a red dress, you can play it up with some black accessories. When you’re picking out shoes remember a few things; they need to be comfortable, scratch the bottoms so you don’t slide all over the floor, you need to be able to walk in them, and be age appropriate.
  3. The Clutch/Purse. Now for most ladies this is a must, unless you want to be that girl who carries her cellphone in between her breast. I’m not saying you have to go out and buy a Michael Kors clutch, you can go to way cheaper places and find something just as good or better to fit your liking. Make sure your phone, some money and a camera will fix in there because that’s mostly what you will be holding.
  4. Accessories. I know a purse is a part of this topic but I mostly want to talk about jewelry. It’s a wedding, get some nice earrings, a necklace and a bracelet. Have some fun with it but still look classy.
  5. Make Up. Yay the fun part. Nothing more exciting to us ladies then getting all dressed up and having a good night. Well if you’re a girl like me who wears basic make up, (and I mean basic by mascara and eye liner and that’s it) then you will think make up is stressful. Never fear, basic make up is okay as long as it looks nice for a wedding, if not ask a friend to help you out or go to a make up store and they can show you how to do things!
  6. Hair. This for me is the fun part, I love doing my hair to look nice (since we all know I work in a pool and never get a chance to do it). When doing your hair I would suggest testing it out a few times at home before you do it. Practice makes perfect is a true sentence when it comes to doing your hair.
  7. The Invite. This is important to bring since you probably don’t know where the location is and it will have the address on it! Trust me, bring it and just leave it in the car unless you are told to bring it in.
  8. Money. I know it’s a wedding and everything is pretty much paid for but you never know when you’re going to need some money. Always bring some just in case!
  9. Camera/Cell Phone. Pictures, pictures, pictures. There’s nothing more fun then taking pictures with people at a wedding, it’s a memory you want to remember. But what you need to remember is that it’s someones special day and you don’t want to ruin it.
  10. Charger/Batteries. I know you’re thinking what camera takes actual batteries anymore? I’m talking about those old birds who still use the old camera that use batteries, and besides always bring an extra battery for those modern cameras if it runs out. You can charge the other one while you’re still talking pictures.
  11. Flats. This is mostly for the ladies, even if you did get those comfortable shoes your feet can still hurt by the end of the night or maybe you can’t dance in heels? Either way flats is a good way to fix that. You can bring a pair of TOMS or even a drug store has flats that fit in your purse just for that purpose!
  12. Deodorant. There’s nothing worse then dancing the night away and realizing you’re not fresh anymore! Now don’t fear if you have a car you and always go get fresh air and freshen up. If you don’t then well you will need to keep thing in your purse! A small one is all you need, I keep one in my purse anyways.
  13. Water. I’m not saying bring a huge jug of water to the wedding, I’m talking about those cute, small ones just to keep you hydrated throughout the ceremony.
  14. A smile. I know that sounds stupid but remember these photos are going to be someone memories for life. You don’t want to be standing in a photo with no smile because you don’t like smiling. Think of someone else and plus you probably look better smiling with your teeth anyways!
  15. A Drive Home/DD. This is the most important one, I cannot stress this enough. Please do not drink and drive! You have so many options these days that you do not have to nor should you! You can call a cab, call a friend, have a designated driver, plan for someone to pick you up, bus home if you live close!

Tips on New Shoes!

I have this thing with new shoes, I hate the way they feel not formed to your foot and are most likely uncomfortable no matter what you said in the store. I do this for all heels that I get because yea I don’t wear them a lot and I want to be comfortable!

Make sure the shoe actually fits! Don’t get a shoe a size too small because your feet will swell and then you will have bigger problems, not to mention your feet will kill right off the bat – those poor toes! Don’t get the show a size too big just because that’s all they had! They’re a million shoe stores out there, it might take you awhile but you will find them.

When you do get the shoes work them in. What I mean by working them in is wear them around the house all the time, for at least a month. By the time the wedding comes they will feel like running shoes.

Scratch the bottom of the shoes. I do this all the time so I don’t fall on my face when you get to the hall. They have nice flat floors with no grip! Trust me on this one. All you have to do it go on your driveway and drag your feet around.

 

Top 10 Things to do in the Fall!

Fall is quickly coming upon us so I wanted to write a little something about that! Now remember I live in Toronto/Brampton so these things will most likely be things we do around here!

  1. Apple Picking. Since I’m on the boarder of farm land it’s only about a 20 min drive to the closest farm where you can do that. If you live in the area, the best place and most famous place out of my friends would be Downy’s Pumpkin Farm. I’ve been going here ever since I was a child, there’s tons of things to do for all ages!

  2. Nuit Blanche. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing Nuit Blanche is. Nuit Blanche is a bunch of contemporary art made by 100s of artist that put their art work on the roads of a big city for everyone to see. The roads get closed, travel because free if you pay one payment of $11, there’s food trucks, hotel prices are lowered and it’s a lot of fun. I’ve been going for about 3-4 years now and it’s amazing every time! Don’t fear, it’s not just in Toronto, I know a lot of big cities do this, you just have to look it up in your area! Here’s the link to Toronto’s so you get the idea!

  3. Halloween! This is a given one, I think this is what everyone looks forward to when they think of fall, that and one other things. Now, there’s more then just getting dressed up and going out for one night. Yes one of the items is to get your costume but the second is to decorate your lawn! Go to stores and check out what they have, you only have to buy this stuff once then you can use it for every year! If you’re older and don’t have a house of your own yet I would say throw a party with your closet friends! Look online to find games and weird, gross, scary stuff to do.
  4. Pumpkin Picking/Plant a Pumpkin. Once again you can do the pumpkin picking at the farm I named earlier,this truly amazing. If you’re planting your own pumpkin you will need to plan this a little bit earlier, mostly I would say do it around the middle of the summer if not then the end like I did. If you do it at the end then you will most likely get small pumpkins.
  5. Pumpkin Craving Contest. My sister and I randomly decided to do this one year and now it`s been a thing ever since. Two years ago we printed off pictures online and then traced, craved then posted them on social media to get everyone to judge them to see who wins. Who ever has to most likes/comments wins. Last year we decided to switch it up and said that we had to free hand the picture then so on same rules. You can switch it up, make you’re own rules and make it a little tradition.
  6. Last Chance Baseball Game. For you baseball fans you already know that the season is still going on strong for the next month or so, get those tickets. For you other folks who like going to games because it’s something to do, well there you go, get cheap tickets and get drunk. (Yes I’m talking to you girls who have no idea what baseball is, how it’s played or any of the player names.)
  7. Football Game/Super Bowl Party. Yay football season has started and I still don’t understand this damn sport! I mean I know the basics I guess. If you are like me and have a boyfriend who is obsessed with football then just go with it. My boyfriend every year throws a super bowl party, it’s pretty fun, there’s bets and a quiz and much more. You can look online to get a whole bunch of ideas and see whats going on. Even better though, would be actually going to see a game! Look for your team on their website and see if they’re coming to place near you!
  8. Thanksgiving. Now I know most of you may be from the states and you’re thinking well that is like football but in Canada its a whole different things. It’s like Christmas without a gifts, just family coming over for dinner. But lets face it, the dinner, aka the turkey, is what everyone wants.
  9. Fall Photo Shoot. I know this is probably one of the most cheesy things I’ve said but I know at least two people who do it every year. Plus you can save the pictures and make it a Christmas gift.
  10. Halloween Haunt. This may be hard for almost all of you since I don’t know if anywhere else has something like this. I live 30 mins away from Canada’s Wonderland, every year they put on this thing called Halloween Haunt. It use to be called Fear Fest but I guess they had to change the name. It’s pretty sweet, they set up a bunch of scary mazes, hire to people to walk around like zombies and do weird shit with their bodies. It’s something you just have to do once in your life around here. If you have seizure though I wouldn’t suggest going, a lot of flashing lights in the mazes, you can go on the rides though! Here’s the link so you get the idea.
