Guess what guys?! I am FINALLY on Instagram! It's taken me literally ages but since yesterday you can find me on (I was kinda bummed that msveve was already taken but whatever, an extra "ve" ain't that bad..). You'll basically find photos of my pig and loads of shoes. Like the ones below (yesterday's score over at Topshop)

Asos Fail

As I hinted before, I have been having a problem with Well, since the people from their customer service have still not replied me, it's time to get things off my chest here on my blog. I am quite displeased with the situation!!

Here's what happened:

Asos was having a one day discount (20% with the code SAVVY20) and I really wanted to use it, but due to too many people using the code (it was a one day discount) their site was unable to grant everyone the discount. Anyways, I was kind of surprised that this happened but didn't really panic or anything, I just wrote to Asos@care and stated my problem, that I was not able to use their discount even though I should have been.

They replied me back right away that they were having problems and that I will be contacted with a new code. A day or so later I received an email from Asos with a new code (SORRYSAVVY20) that was supposed to work until the 18th of December. I waited until the 16th to use it BUT it didn't work, again! Upon trying to pay for my order it said I had already used the code or that the code wasn't active, both of which were not true. I contacted Asos@care AGAIN to let them know I was having this problem and what should I do.

They wrote me back on the 19th with a new code that was supposed to be valid until the 18th. WTF??! I obviously couldn't use this code. I was also surprised at how late they replied to my issue. I wrote them again saying that although I do thank them for the code, but given that I was replied to on the 19th I couldn't use it and if they could send me a new code which I could actually use. They still (to this day) haven't replied me.

I wrote them again about this issue two more times and in both cases I just got the automatic email that they are working hard and will reply me soon. It has been DAYS and still no reply (to none of my emails).

Thus all I can think as a customer is that 1) their discount codes were FALSE ADVERTIZING, 2) their customer service do not give a shit about their customers and 3) Asos has been lying to me and to any other customers who were unable to use the code and have not been replied to. Which actually would be a case of FRAUD.

I am SO DISSAPOINTED in Asos since I have always been a good customer and have been recommending Asos to all my friends for the past two years. In light of the recent events I can only see this situation as a scam from Asos and I am not one that likes to get duped.

Anyways, it's one day before Christmas so I don't want to go on and on about this situation but I promised to tell what happened, so here it is. If anything should change I will post it asap, though to be honest, I have lost faith in Asos. Time will tell...

Happy Holidays!

Everyone celebrates the holidays differently and for me this upcoming Christmas is all about loved ones, family and friends, the food (best part) and of course the gifts. I feel lucky to have all of my shopping and crafting done and be really able to enjoy the upcoming days.

Things are almost ideal. Well, I am having one issue with but I'm still giving them one more day to address and make right the problem that arose from their side. If not, you'll hear all the details here tomorrow. (I will hint that it has to do with false advertizing and non-functioning discount codes and poor customer service.)

Anyway, to keep this on a light and happy holiday note with a bit of an edge, here's

No one does naughty like Ana... Ho Ho Ho.

A few days ago I was on the prowl for some Christmas gifts and came across these boots - on sale! - the last pair and in my size. It was destiny. So, yeah, I bought them... I am a firm believer that while buying presents you should also buy something for yourself. That's what really gets me into the spirit ;)

* I usually buy myself something smaller, but these boots were really on ridiculous sale and I knew it was a once and only offer right there and then, so I went for it. They aren't perhaps the most wearable shoes - that plexi glass wedge heel is fierce - but I love their kookiness and the levitating effect they have. They are the MMM for H&M leather boots btw.

DIY Felt Pizza

So as promised here is a DIY post of how to make a felt pizza. I'm giving it to my boyfriend's niece (she's almost two) who is getting a kitchenette as a Christmas present from her parents so I thought a pizza would be a nice additional gift. I was inspired to do this when I saw the DIY kitchenette post over on a beautiful mess - an awesome blog filled with loads of DIYs and inspiration posts.

Supplies needed: scissors, needle, different colored threads, different colored felt, cotton balls (for stuffing), pizza box, paper, pencil (for the templates)

1. I first made paper templates for the pizza slices: a crust, cheese topping and tomato sauce template.

2. Copy the templates onto the felt by using a pencil and then cut out the felt pieces.

3. Cut out the cheese toppings and the tomato sauce from the different colored felt pieces and make sure that the pieces fit unto the crust felt piece.

4. Sew the cheese onto the tomato sauce piece and then sew this piece onto the crust piece. I used yellow thread to sew on the cheese part and red to sew on the tomato sauce. After you have the "base" of the pizza sewed, you will want to add the toppings. *

 5. Add any toppings that you think should be on the pizza: I mainly used mushrooms, basil, olives (black & green), also some pepperoni slices, an anchovy, onion, an egg, even truffles! After sewing on the toppings, you will want to sew the bottom crush part of the pizza onto the top part. I first sewed one side, then the counter side - leaving the top "crust" side open - stuffed the pizza with cotton balls; and then sewed the last part.

And there you have it. I think it's a nice touch to decorate the pizza box. I glued in some nice paper I had leftover (from a pair of Irregular Choice shoes) and added stickers before fixing it all with wide see-through tape. I also decorated the top part of the box with felt cut-outs. (Her name is Justina.)

 I really hope she enjoys her new pizza! If I have to be honest I'll say it was quite a lot of work. I also made a few cookies but then gave up because I'm not used to sewing and my hand was beginning to hurt like hell. Also if I was giving this to my kid (I don't have kids) I probably wouldn't have put the pepperoni and ham toppings on the pizza - since I do not eat pork - but since the boy's family loves pork-based toppings on their pizzas, I thought I should do it as they would like.

I'll let you know how Justa liked it after Christmas!

* I originally thought I would make just plain pizza slices and have the toppings not sewed on, so that she could play with the toppings herself and create her own pizza flavors but she's still too young for such small pieces, so I had to sew them on as well.

Happy Holidays!

Wow. I haven't been here in such a long time! I am truly sorry for neglecting this here blog but I was sick with a bad case of angina. I was basically bed locked for the past two three weeks. And now that I'm back to functioning I'm frantically trying to get the rest of my Christmas gifts settled. I'll be honest and say that I'm buying most of the presents and making only a tiny tiny portion of them but it still feels like Christmas has crept up on me and I'm so not prepared.

In other news I was at a party not long ago and here are a few pictures. (It feels I haven't posted any photos in ages..)

While I was on facebook today, I came upon a "your year" summary feature and it showed the following photo and I just couldn't not share it with you. It's me & Dracul on the annual Sedmihorky Pig-club trip. I can't believe I could still lift him up in the summer (I can't anymore).

 Man, I miss the summer! (Nowadays Dracul doesn't even want to go outside at all so I have to force him and he always makes a sense/ screams and it is so annoying...) Anyhoo, I have a DIY Christmas gift post planned that I will post tomorrow. So stay tuned and have a lovely Thursday! Bya!
