Trying To Catch-up!

Blogging can be a lot of fun and it can also be very frustrating. The frustration kicks in, when your major tool of the trade, besides your creative mind, breaks down. This being my laptop. Many people are asking why I just don't buy a new one!? This seems like a simple enough answer, but it's becoming rather annoying. It is especially irritating to hear, since if I had the extra money, I probably would. However, when you are ill, have no medical insurance and are paying $4 USD per gallon of gas to go to several doctors appts per week, extra cash ceases to exist. Another reason why this comment bothers me, is becuase this system is less than a year old and under warrantee. A lot of money was also spent on this laptop to boot (no pun intended)! So, the juggling act with Dell continues. I call them and they either send me another system with a faulty heat synch or just a faulty refurbished replacement heat synch. Now, they want me to send my laptop to them to be fixed again, which takes a month. I am NOT waiting a month! My solution is simple... Just send me a freaking different model with heat synch that doesn't fry out every 2 months! So, once again, I need to spend my day arguing with people who I can't understand and who can't understand me. We both in turn perceive this as being rude and nothing is resolved! Oy! I just needed to get that off my chest and also apologize to the many wonderful designers who are waiting on my posts. I am working as quickly as my laptop will let me. Please bear (or is it bare?) with me....
Now, on a positive note.... Sissy Pessoa just recently released the 'Poletj' dress in 6 gorgeous colors! I am always in awe of Sissy's superb prim work and romantic style. These dresses, which are very rich in color and texture, have slightly vintage and Asian feel. A definite must for any upscale Summer outing or if you just want to feel fabulous. So, please take a look at the pictures, since they can explain everything much better then I can. Then do yourself a favor and head over to Baiastice and check-out Sissy's amazing designs.

  1. Hi Lila
    I definitely feel your pain girl...but know that you are lots of support here and tons of ppl love your creativity and blog! Love seeing every one of your new posts and just wanted to send a quick note of love and support ;-)
    Keep up your awesome work


  2. I have the same issue with my Dell laptop. The first repair was within the warranty, but sadly enough that's expired now. I did however buy a laptop cooler, that seriously reduced the overheating. Maybe that'd work as a temporary solution for you until you've got a new one.

    Good luck, you have a lovely blog, I hope it works out!

  3. Awwwwww I totally understand your frustration! And yes warranties are good, but a pain in the butt as well(I don't want to say what I really think of them on your beautiful blog) ;) lol It took me 3 years to get a new computer, and then 6 months of hassle for a replacement(in desktop form, my beautiful lappy is gone now) Keep up the awesome work and vent, vent and vent some more lol just so you don't drive yourself crazy!
    Oh and I so love the Dress, Sissy is amazing :)

  4. I just wanted to thank everyone for all your kind words and support. I try not to vent and complain too much, since my blog is about fashion. But,RL stuff happens and the frustration can just get you. So, thank you so much once again <3

    @ Glamorous Closet: Thank you so much. I am so happy you like it:
    @ Five Latte: Your lovely comments brought the biggest smile to my face <3
    @ Ikeda: I am so sorry to hear that. And yes, i was just actually talking about getting one of those fans. It's definitely worth a try ^^
    @ Evion: I am sorry you went through the same frustration. I am pretty sure I know what you were "really" thinking. Thank you for your encouraging words. And, yes, Sissy is amazing and such a lovely person too ^^
