Bride Sells Her Wedding Dress On Ebay To Fund Divorce

wedding-dress-ebay

(PCM) A U.K. bride is making headlines as she is selling her wedding dress on Ebay to assist with funding her pending divorce. In her hilarious, yet bitter, posting she claims that her ex-husband has left her to “foot the bill”.

It is the incredibly tongue-in-cheek posting by 28-year old Samantha Wagg that has caused her Ebay list for a size 6 Art Deco wedding gown to go viral. She goes into great detail about her pending divorce from her “cheating scumbag of a husband”.

Wagg is accepting emails from people who have questions about the dress and “the skank that my husband ran off with”, she also hilariously warns buyers that they should be sure to dry clean the dress before wearing to get rid of the “stench of betrayal”.

Wow! Definitely would make us rethink purchasing this one!

Wagg had made an initial posting in regards to the dress however it wasn’t getting any attention. Her brother suggested making it funny in hopes of going viral and the results have been astonishing.

Wagg says her parents paid around $2,600 for the dress back in 2014, however her incredibly comedic bid has raised the price upwards of over $86,000!  Wagg will not reveal any more details about her divorce and claims that she has been approached to appear on several U.K. reality television series, which she is seriously considering.

Wagg says she is humbled by outpouring of love and support from people all over the world and that she has managed to forgive her ex-husband for his mistake and wishes him nothing but the best (without her!) for the rest of his life. She goes on to say “I am very happy now, so I hope he is too.”

There Is An App That Lets You Purchase Restaurant Leftovers For A Fraction Of The Price!

Peachy-Keens-App

(PCM) What a genius idea! There is an app in the UK called “Too Good To Go” that allows people to purchase leftover food from various cafes and fancy dining establishments for a fraction of the price it would normally cost to dine. On average a “Too Good To Go” meal could equal out to about two British pounds which is the approximate equivalent to $2.60 in U.S. currency.

How do we not have this here in the States already?

It is a fantastic way to avoid having all of that perfectly good food go to waste. Seriously, why not make a little money off it and feed some hungry people rather than have it do nothing but rot in a garbage can. Co-founder of “Too Good To Go” James Crummie says “Food waste just seems like one of the dumbest problems we have in this world. The restaurant industry is wasting about 600,000 tons of food each year, and in the U.K. alone there are one million people on emergency food parcels from food banks. Why do we have these two massive social issues that are completely connected, yet there is not much going on to address them?” He makes a completely valid point. One in six U.S. households go hungry, while restaurants throw away 40% of their food each and every day.

How is works is, users can pick up their meals an hour before closing time at the restaurant of their choosing. Ordering through the app is simply like waiting until the last minute to grab takeout before heading home to Netflix and Chill! Here’s to hoping that we can get something like this started up in the States sometime soon, as we think it is an utterly fantastic idea and a perfect way to be environmentally conscious and cut down on the massive problem of food waste.

Witchcraft Shop Refuses To Sell Wands To Harry Potter Fans

Harry-Potter-Wand1

(PCM) Not sure exactly how one witchcraft shop in Great Britain is able to accurately spot a Harry Potter fan, however they claim they can sense one just by the aura and wants no part of them shopping in their store.

Mystical Moments crafts gorgeous handmade wooden wands for witches, warlocks and wizards, however if you are a Harry Potter fan you can forget about it!  The store refuses to sell any wands to fans of the hit book/film franchise written by author J.K. Rowling.

The store owner claims that while Rowling did, indeed, do her research, Harry Potter is for children and has done nothing for his business overall. The store owner told the Telegraph, “I don’t have customers who have been Harry Potterfied. If I had someone come in wanting a wand just because they liked Harry Potter I wouldn’t sell them one, no matter how much money they were offering.”

When used correctly wands can be used as a tool to draw a protective circle around witches to assist with curing various ills and of course make wishes come true. All you truly need is faith in whichever product you choose to have it work wonders for you, except if you are a fan of Harry Potter. In that case, you are totally on your own!

This definitely shows quite a bit of discrimination against Harry Potter fans by Mystical Moments and many fans feel that it is not even legal for a shop to refuse to sell an item to a specific group of people. Do we smell a lawsuit brewing?

Breast Milk Is The Latest Jewelry Trend

(PCM) New mothers who are in search of a way to keep the memory of breast feeding their newborn babies alive and well for years to come are in luck. Guess what? It is also a serious fashion statement as well! One of the latest jewelry trend is turning breast milk into some absolutely amazing looking accessories.

A New Jersey woman by the name of Ann Marie Sharoupium has started a company called “Mama’s Liquid Love” and it is really beginning to take off! Women can send Ann Marie some of their breast milk and she will then turn it into a piece of jewelry of their choice. There are tons of choices such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets and more. Definitely an oddly unique take on personalized jewelry!

Breast-feeding can create some very intimate moments between a child and a mother, so this is definitely a way to assist with preserving those moments shared between mother and child that can last a lifetime. There are some that feel the idea is a little bit controversial, however just looking at the jewelry designs there’s really no way of knowing that they were created with breast milk without someone actually telling you.

The jewelry is actually created to look like a pearly white stone, which is actually crafted from breast milk preserved in resin. You can also have the resin dyed to a color of your choosing, just in case breast milk white doesn’t happen to be your thing!

Definitely a unique gift idea and a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry!

Experts Predict There Could Be A Huge Champagne Shortage In The Near Future

Champagne1

(PCM) Say it isn’t so! Guess we won’t be breaking out too many bottles of bubbly to toast the end of summer. Experts are now predicting that there could be a huge shortage of champagne in the near future.

According to the experts a late season frost caused a nearly 70% loss of crop for several growers and many also had to endure hail storms late in the season which led to mildew.  Many manufacturers have reserves set aside to deal with situations like this if they should arise, however if they are forced to dip into the reserves it could affect what is left to deal with any environmental setbacks in the future.

Crop growers claim that this shortage is the worst they have endured since the 1980’s and this season in particular has been the hardest since 1956. Be sure to choose your celebratory drinking occasions wisely as champagne is not the only drink that has been effect by bad weather conditions and environmental factors this season.

There has been a high demand for scotch with a lack of supply, and also on the non-alcoholic side coffee and cocoa are both facing global supply issues.

What In The World Is Sprite Thinking With Their Ridiculous New Ad Campaign?

Sprite-ad

(PCM) We have no idea who is in charge of the copy writing for Sprite’s newest ad campaign, but it seems as if they are pulling their material from a bunch of drunken frat boys on a Saturday night. People are already beginning to express outrage via social media in regards to the lemon-lime beverage’s confusing and wildly inappropriate ad’s that pretty much compare Sprite and “loose” women.

A few of the phrases in the ad campaign say things such as “She’s seen more ceilings than Michelangelo”, “A 2 at 10 is a 10 at 2!”, “One dip is never enough”, “If you have to give your taxi driver directions, you’re better off walking” and “You’re not popular. You’re easy”.  Ouch!

Seriously, who is coming up with this stuff, it is almost like some sort of bad joke! It appears that the ads in question are part of a website background takeover campaign, but even still, someone at Sprite still had to sign off on these ads we would assume. The Coca Cola company, makers of Sprite, claim that they are using the ad campaign as a way to simply “tell it like it is”, but most of the phraseology within these ads is just plain wrong and downright insulting.

They are using the slogan #BrutallyRefreshing to describe the ads and we are sure there will be some heads rolling the marketing department come Monday morning … how’s that for brutal?
