Did a little hip & zen holiday shopping this week. I had mentioned two pieces of feedback to Karen after getting my first hip & zen order back in October.
First, I had mentioned that I hates those packing peanuts because they always got every where and when you throw them in a recycle bin they inevitably blow about. Is it only a coincidence that this time around my package came with this note inside:
It was easy to just dump the box of peanuts into my sink. Immediately upon wetting them down they did, sure enough, start to dissolve and melt away. The Wicked Witch of the West was brought to mind.Within seconds there was not even the trace of the memory of annoying cornstartch packing peanuts. Yay! Now, I'm sure I always could have washed these babies down the sink, but I didn't know and would never have thought of it. Brilliant to insert that note to let me know!
My second comment was that the necklace I bought had come in a nice pouch and with the front of it covered in plastic, but I mentioned that, being in a white bag, it almost got lost amongst the white annoying cornstarch packing peanuts. So, is it a coincidence that this time the bracelet I bought was still in its nice white bag, but was taped to the tissue wrapped around another item I purchased? I like to think not!
I bought the bracelet I have been lusting after for some time now and am, in fact, wearing it right now. It is definitely as cute as it looks in the picture. The band is very similar to the band son my Skagen watches. I will offer this one bit of advice. I don't have the very skinniest wrists in the world, and I still have the buckle on the very last hole. It's a unisex item, so i guess that's why, but skinny girls beware. I would give this item to any hip guy or gal you know. I love it!
The rest of my purchases were gifts, so I can really talk about them. (Actually, I got two of one of the items...one for a gift, one for myself.) I will just have to check back with you after Christmas and let you know how the gifts went over.
