Earth to Lauren…

No, I haven’t abandoned HappilyCandied.com. I’ve just been taking a little hiatus from updating throughout the last few months. My entire life has gone through an unimaginable and unexpected metamorphosis, and I’ve been coping with the changes one day at a time.

I’m happy though, happier than I’ve ever been. I feel like it’s important to stress that. For the first time in my life, I feel like I’m truly myself. I’ve come out of a really long slumber and I’m more awake than I’ve ever been. I hope to get back into the swing of things here, or at least update somewhat more consistently like I did when the site first launched once my feet are planted more firmly on the ground, so to speak.

To help kickstart my posting pace, I think I’ll jump right into sharing a few of the photos I’ve taken of recent toy additions over the last two months or so, and share a few memories and stories attached to them while I’m at it!


HappilyCandied.com browser compatibility

February 28, 2015 at 7:50 pm

HappilyCandied.com was designed so that it would function in the most widely used browsers and on mobile devices. The following browsers are included in the list:

HC-BrowserComp_All


After taking a look at the site in all three, I’ve found that it appears the best in Chrome. The text and images appear more vivid, smoother and much crisper. I highly recommend using the site in the Google browser if you have the option to do so!

If you find yourself having any problems browsing the new site, feel free to shoot a message over notifying me of the issue(s) by using the form on the Contact page. Providing information about your browser, what you’re experiencing and any other notes you feel would be helpful will make troubleshooting easier.


First items to hit the shop next week

February 27, 2015 at 7:16 pm

It’s official! Four items are slated for release next week, the week of March 2nd. All the items and their prices are currently listed in the Shop for viewing with the status of ‘Coming Soon’ right now. The status will change to ‘In Stock’ sometime next Thursday or Friday.

As noted in the launch announcement article, certain items, like the Roslin Pinkinshire Paper Doll and the Uglydoll Postcard, will be staples in the Shop. If you find that a listing’s status is ‘Out of Stock’ for one of those, it will eventually come back in stock. The custom one-of-a-kind items will only be available until they’re purchased; once one of them is gone, it’s gone!

I’m working on three new items to add to the Shop at the moment, and I’ll continue to work on their listings throughout the weekend. Depending on how everything goes, one or more of them may also be added to the lineup for next week’s releases.

Stay tuned to HappilyCandied.com and the official Happily Candied Facebook page to receive all the latest updates about the first items to hit the Shop!
