How to purchase.

You have up to three options for purchase. If you live in the upstate South Carolina area and would like to deliver and/ or pick up your item I will take cash. You have to actually appear in physical form, lolx. My other two options are google wallet and etsy!

Google Wallet

If you want an invoice on an item that you see on Instagram please email me at luluchris58@gmail.com. Please include in the subject line which item or items that you are wishing to purchase along with the word Invoice. You have 24 hours to pay for your items or they will be restocked.

Etsy

I do not list all of my items on Etsy because of fees. I have two special listings for the items that you see on Instagram but they are not listed on Etsy. The listings are “The Closet” and “Social Media Items“. If you look at the pictures on these listings then you will see that they are from the Instagram page. If an item is no longer available, I will remove the picture from Instagram. If you have an item that is priced more than the two listings, then I will list the item on Etsy for you as a reserved item. In the title your name will be included. This will make your price of your item increase by 1.20.

Any questions feel free to email me at luluchris58@gmail.com

 

MC: Relationships After 25: Facebook Post From An Ex

Mommy's Corner

Hey guys! How is everyone today? I hope that you guys are doing great this morning. I am up early. I couldn’t go back to sleep so I decided to write. ( In my 4 page letter voice). This post is sort of a release post about something that I seen this morning that rubbed me the wrong way, a Facebook post from an ex.

So I wrote a post about 19 things that I did wrong in my previous relationships. I talked about my past three relationships. A lot of things I did in each relationship but a good bit of the things were done in my last relationship alone. Now of course I would have this relationship details fresh in my mind. It is the one that I still deal with. Well one of the “exes” wasn’t to happy with my story telling abilities. He took to Facebook to post a status. I won’t  quote him directly, I will just give you the jist of the post. He basically said that people should own up their mistakes without victimizing themselves.

Read that post here!

Now Why Did This Rub Me The Wrong Way

I have a few reasons that this didn’t sit right with me. First reason is, when I tell other people how I am feeling it’s because I can’t say it to that person. It’s not out of the fact of fear, it’s simply because that person ignores me. Instead of saying “Hey I have a problem with this.”, he takes to social media to “vent” his frustration. My second problem with this is now I get to look like the bad guy inside of a bad inside joke. Now I say it’s a bad inside joke because he only got brave once and posted my birthday in a post.  Any other time, there’s no names, only indicators for the hit dog to holler. I am not the easiest person to get along with but I make myself available for discussion if you have any type of problem.  Now we have people only getting half of the truth, if any, and basing their opinion of me as  person on that.  My last and maybe my biggest problem of the whole matter is that I am obsessed with explaining myself. I do not know why but I do. I think it’s because I have always wanted to know why people do things. I feel that if explain why you done something, it makes it easier for the person to empathize with you. It won’t change the fact that you are wrong, it just makes them understand you better.

If there is one thing about me, I will try to tell you the  whole truth about a situation as best I can. I try to see life with unbiased eyes but I am not a mind reader. If I know that I am doing something wrong, I put that out there before telling the story. To give a better example. That ex who posted that status loves to point fingers and call out others on their mistakes. He would whine and complain about being ignored by people whose back he had while ignoring me when I was trying to address an issue with him. Since when is ok to expect things from others when we don’t do them ourselves? Don’t dish out advice on to the plate of others that you should be eating yourself. In fact, eat the whole casserole dish of it. Funny thing was when we were friends, He always had an ear to listen long as he wasn’t a factor to the problem.

Why Didn’t You Just Tell Him This:

I didn’t tell him this because he will just ignore me and take to the social media scene. Since he likes to read my blog and do unofficial reviews for them, I figured this would be the perfect way for him to see my anger. Next time be sure to link my blog post that you are referring in your status.

Now I know some of you guys that are reading this maybe thinking “how do you know that he was even talking about you.”?  Well trust me when I say I know some people like the back of my hand and he’s one of them. Let’s be fair for a second, let’s say he was talking about someone else. Well that person has an inbox or maybe even a phone. The best part is they have a face, try using it to tell them how you feel!

Now it’s your turn:

Feel free to voice your thoughts and opinions about this post in the comment section. If you would like to share a similar story go right ahead. I just ask you not to make a status about it, lolx.

MC: Ratchet Is The New Classy??

Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion

20131112-102821.jpg

Hey guys!! How is everyone today? I hope that everyone is doing great! So I was talking to my friend and we began to wonder ” Is ratchet the new classy?”

When someone post a picture about fighting or sexual topics on social media they get loads of likes. When someone post positive images the likes decrease. This is also true for television. Remember I said I stop watching “Black Girls Rock” to tune into the premier of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”!

How do you guys feel about this? Should we just accept that we live in a time where there’s a new sheriff in town and that its name is Ratchet? Has the definition of class changed?

MC:Relationships After 25: Social Media Break Ups Are The Way To Go?

Mommy's Corner, parent family fashion

 

kordell-porsha

Hey guys! How are you all doing today? I am watching In The Heat Of The Night. Well it’s watching me. I’ve seen this episode literally over  100 times in my lifetime!  Anyways, did you guys catch the first episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta? I must raise both hands and say I did. I will admit, I did skip out on the rest of Black Girls Rock for it. I will do a separate post on that later.

So during the first episode of RHOA, we got to get a glimpse of what went down in Porsha and Kordell’s divorce. I forgotten  that  he announced the divorce on Twitter. Before I go in and let have on that fact let me just say that Twitter is now the devil on RHOA. Three villains of the night Walter, Kordell and Twitter! Ok now back to the subject at hand. I made the remark that Twitter breakups are always the best. I said this because, really what adult breaks up with someone on social media or even text message. Well here’s the sad fact, a lot.  It’s the new age “Dear John Letter” minus the privacy. If you don’t know what one is, let me know and I will do another post explaining it. Technology is a tool that is  ruining and helping us, as people at the same time. Relationships are never going to be the same, in my opinion.

How So?

With technology, we have the option to make less time for each other face to face. Let’s be honest, I have some people I went to high school with that I haven’t seen in over 10 years but I can tell you everything about them due to social media. So why should I spend money to go to reunion when I already know all that I need to know. You are a part of the world without leaving home, basically. Well its the same concept with relationship issues and problems. Why risk losing an argument in person or letting someone see your vulnerability when you can just  write it out in the comforts of your own home?  The purpose of technology is to make our lives faster and eaiser, right?

Was Kordell Wrong?

Hell yes he was wrong!  First off, Porsha asked him if he was going to divorce her. He had his chance right there to say “Yes, because..”. Instead he left out for the day and tweeted about it. Second off, he is an older man; he could have sat down an talked it out. Third, even if he was scared of Porsha’s reaction, he could have just wrote her an old school “Dear John” letter. It would have been a queen move but at least she would have had her privacy. He just should have had more respect for her as a person, an adult, a woman and as his wife!  I guess when James Ingram said that there’s no easy way to break somebody heart  he hadn’t met Kordell. Now to be fair to Kordell, I want to hear what made him do that? It has to be more to this story. Yes it’s still wrong but I would love to know his logic behind it.

 

What are your thoughts on the whole social media break up thing? What was your thoughts on last night’s episode of  Real Housewives of Atlanta?

Of Course none of these picutres are mine. I dont know these folks, lolx.
