@serenityfound that's so sweet! you're right :)
@Mariajoseh I'm just happy because last year I couldn't afford a $300 plane home (mom paid with credit card, I only returned half of it) and this year I can actually buy PRESENTS!
I'm Mexican and our version of Black Friday was a few weeks ago but I got overwhelmed and didn't buy anything.
This weekend I got most of my shopping done. It took forever to find the gift my little sister wanted for secret santa (a circle skirt NOT black. Every store has them on black) but The Body Shop had a great "buy 2 get 2 free" sale, so I got a face serum for myself, a hand cream for my gandma (hardest person to shop for EVER), a BB cream for one sister and an eye cream for the last sister. It was only like 40 dollars.
I also went to a local brands event and I got a nail polish made from natural ingredients. It sucks, it looks like my 2 year old niece painted my nails :( Back to deathly chemicals!
Got a woolen scarf for my boyfriend last week (is it the least romantic present ever? I can't top my gift from last year, anyways) and now I'm missing my mom's gift (a gift card from a spa, have to wait 'till I'm home to buy it) and my best friend's, still undecided.
Wow, this was l0ng, sorry!
Just just read the 1st paragraph and had to come here and say that the liquid probably was a drink. It is quite common in México, the drink-in-a-bag thing... sadly, the weird-guy-with-no-boundaries? Also commom.
I love snorkeling and it is the only situation in which I also lose pretty much all fear.
I've missed your writing, Edith! Will this be available in Amazon Mexico? Say yes.
@Jolie Kerr Probably lost in translation (English is not my mother tongue) but anyways, we agree. A weird way to describe The Hairpin!
@Jolie Kerr Yeah, I thought exactly that too! She probably just read a few posts. But still, I kinda understand cool-girl, if you are like me and think weird is cool but not sophisticated!
@Emma Carmichael Thank you! I thought it was a choice haha.
Oh I really want to read this interview but... what's up with the format? Not very friendly :(
@Probs My friend had a dropper with mezcal with her costume and I kinda got drunk with it (the costume was a reference to a song in Spanish with a stupid line that says something about "saying yes like a dropper")
I've only read "Hateship...", "Runaway" and "Open Secrets" (her books are REALLY EXPENSIVE in Mexico, and it's only going to get worse) but she is also one of my top 5 favorite authors. I had the same feeling waking up (my boyfriend had facebooked me a link to Margaret Atwood's Twitter-another favorite-with the awesome news)
