cmsgirl:  Ha, mine would be the same. I bought a Dyson after our old Hoover broke down after two years thinking it would be so much better. It hasn’t broken yet, but it performs about the same and doesn’t even have a retractable cord like the Hoover did….wtf.

Also, Birchbox. It’s supposed to be customized to what you look like and what type of products you are most interested in. I entered all my preferences, like my hair and skin color and the fact that I wanted mostly skincare products and not hair and makeup products. Well, they kept sending me hair and makeup products instead of skincare, and worse, the makeup products would be in the completely wrong shade and unusable for that reason. Like I get it if you don’t stock foundation samples in every color under the sun, but I said I have brown skin in my profile, so don’t send me a foundation for white skin, just send me something else instead.

My kitchenaid for sure! My mum’s 40 year old sunbeam works MUCH better.

Proactive.  Dried my skin out to the point where it hurt and made me break out more.

Darling Husband bought a ceramic pan (the green ones) after we saw it advertised non-stop on our honeymoon in DR, in spanish.

Darling Husband bought the pancake one, which was flawed by design.  He burned everything in it until it just started stinking up the house and he threw it out it the yard he was so sad LOL!

I can’t believe no one has mentioned the PED EGG!! That stupid product wouldn’t flake a 1 mm lint ball off a freshly waxed desktop. My heels are still dry as f. I’m out $10.

I don’t like pumpkin spice lattes even though I’m exceptionally basic in every other way. The shame is real. I’ll stick with my raspberry mocha frappucinos.

FI bought this onion slicer after watching me cry onion tears and being scared of chopping his fingers off, he likes it, but I find it more work to put the thing together and clean it than it takes to just chop the stupid thing yourself.
