CHA Day 2...

I don't have as many pics for day 2, but I will try to remember what we did :-) I do know that the day started with us rushing to the Studio Calico booth, as Jenn wanted to sign up for their wood veneer mini-album make and take (alright, alright, I wanted to do it too... ;-) We ended up signing up for an afternoon slot, and the mini-album was adorable! We got to meet and chat with some of the SC girls (Nicole H. and Davinie) who were both awesome!

We then went by Teresa Collins booth again b/c every day, she was doing a new mini-album make and take with her new lines. Day 1, we got the home line which is super cute. On Day 2, she was giving away the wedding line which Jenn really wanted to get for her sister. Unfortunately, the line was super long that morning, and it didn't seem to get any better, so we did miss that one. We did, however, have the pleasure of chatting with Teresa for awhile, and she was so friendly and sweet (and pretty too!).
Stopped by the JBS booth again, and Doris introduced me to Jenni Bowlin which was a huge treat for me since I think all my blog readers know i'm a huge fan! She was also very warm and genuine. I feel like I keep saying how wonderful everyone was so that it sounds insincere, but really, everyone was so great!! It was so nice to see that even the big names behind the products are "real" people, and both Teresa and Jenni seemed very down to earth.
Loved the new Lily Bee lines!
The Girls Paperie booth was one of my very favorites that I saw. Pure eye candy throughout!

This did not photograph well, but the Making Memories booth had this awesome butterfly mobile hanging from the ceiling, and all the butterflies were cut out from transparencies using the Slice - very cool effect!
Me and Michelle giving each other some love... :-)
Ok, so that recap wasn't so great, lol, but my memory is already fading (I guess that's old age kicking in lol). I should have taken detailed day-by-day notes like Jenn did!

I still have more pics to post from Day 3, so stay tuned...

So I took the plunge -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-ValveDock-Carbon-Edition-2.html]Fatman iTube Carbon 2[/url] and I am very happy to say that I made out like a bandit. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months back and just couldn't get that quality out of my head because it really truly surprised me. I searched high and low for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I called them up first and asked a bunch of questions and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and made the purchase. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was as it should be. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they post outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

Best accessory I could have bought...

Tips on How to meet Girls for the Mall

If you're just one guy and aren't the optimal at choosing very much less meeting girls and are questioning where you can head to obtain and meet up with a young girl, then these ten sensible tips on how to fulfill a chick at the local mall, need to appear in mighty handy.

1 - Go towards the food court. Think it or not, the food court would be the absolute optimal location in your mall to meet a woman. Here's what you do. Choose a meals site and get in line for the meal. Although you're the one in line, take a look close to the region somewhere anybody is seated and eating. Glance for a lady sitting alone, as well as two girls sitting together. When you could have your meal in hand, walk more than to exactly where she or there're sitting down and talk to if you’re able to join them. If you're truthful and straightforward with them, your odds are very effective.

2- Do some pondering. Previously you even look at heading on the shopping mall to satisfy a toddler, sit all by yourself down and do some severe thinking. Think about how you could possibly match a woman and what you would possibly say to her if you , yourself are profitable. Contemplate which parts for the mall you'd probably pay a visit to. Also, you are going to need to purchase something even though there, what do you will need? Lastly, think about what meeting a chick in the public position entails. Absolutely you may will need to appear for a wedding ring ahead of speaking to a young lady, and you're likely to would need to start thinking about if it is wiser to speak with a female alone or a person who is with other people. Finally, you are likely to have being practical about your personal age along with the ages of a woman you desire to meet. As in, you are likely to would need to tell all by yourself to get sensible and do not try to fulfill girls that happen to be a great deal of younger or older than you’re, or that appearance out of your respective league.



three - Ask for facilitate. When that you are at long last for the mall, just one of the tactics to fulfill girls is by asking them for assistance. Women be aware that men have no idea what there're undertaking once they are purchasing, so asking for facilitate will not seem such a ridiculous concept. Request facilitate in picking out a jacket for on your own for instance. Executing so let's the woman know which you are single. If she agrees to help you, request her other questions as you grab completely different jackets to try out on.
