The #HashtagRing, The Hashtag Ring. It's all about the #Hashtag_Ring for Ring Fanciers everywhere. The #1 Gift to give as decreed by The Queen of Splurge, ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith, Creator/Founder/Originator: National Splurge Day © 1994 and The Daily Splurge © 2014.

Parcel of


The Daily Splurge

National Splurge Day’s The Daily Splurge #152 for Thursday, November 20, 2014 promotes the Trendiest Ring that any Gal could ever want for Christmas.  Even if she is not of the Christian Persuasion or Religion, this is OR: One Ring that says it all.  A Sign of the Times - our Times, it is the HASHTAG RING – 18 Karat Gold Ring with/of the Hashtag Symbol that is studded with 1 Karat Diamonds.  This is the Epitome of what Trends and becomes Trendsetting. Consider this the Conversation Piece of the Season, if not for 2015 and beyond. 
Kudos to its Designer: Khai Khai Jewelry

Me? I’d want mine totally encrusted and embedded in Emeralds or Chunks of Malachite instead since Green is more conducive to my Coloring.  Hats off and give him/her a Round of Applause for  Khai as this Hashtag Ring should get the:


awarded by We here at SPLURGE Central.  If it holds true according to The Lyrics of ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ that someone  will be receiving 5 Golden Rings, so be it:  This is the Hautest and Hottest Ring ever made for the TheTechno Savvy of our Age and Era. As I often wear a bracelet on each wrist in order to make my outfit look CUFFED, I suggest buying 2 of these Rings -- on each Finger.
Less us not forget that previously the #Hashtag was the Pound Sign and The Tick Tack Toe Board.  Evolution never stops. As it shouldn't.

The Quintessential Cupcake ever baked. At $1,223 you can imagine what the Rest of the Meal costs. Observations made by ASK: #AdrienneSiouxKoopersmith, The Queen of Splurge via National Splurge Day's #The_ Daily_Splurge, Chicago's Very Own.



#NationalSplurgeDay’s #TheDailySplurge #145 for Thursday, November 13, 2014 was inspired by a new Twitter Colleague of today, Steve Boucher, #The_Hashtag_King who has collected a Variety of the most splurgerrific Photos and Captions on his Page, definitely not for the weak of Heart, only for those who want to see what puts the Extraordinary into Daily Life for the über Riche, dfinitely for those who have the Inclination to SPLURGE as much as they can and whenever the can. 

OF SIGNIFICANCE: Just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it is tasteful and/or of pertinence or even liked (for  that matter), especially to those with a  discerning Eye. What grabbed my Attention Today, as THE QUEEN OF SPLURGE was a CupCake, but this was no ordinary CupCake.  This CupCake was special. This CupCake engrained with Flour that was grown in the Queen’s Garden & Plates that are edged and ledged in Gold, Edible Gold, that is.  Not 14-Karat but 24-Karat Gold.  All for a mere Penance and Pittance of a King’s Ransom, this CupCake (which could be yours and which [I would guess] is edible, but not filling) costs a mere Mortgage Payment to an average Over-Achiever or Suburbanite of $1,223.  This ambitious little CupCake Morselle was surrounded by Dollops of Chocolate, a Pair of Strawberries dipped in Liquid Gold & had a few Brittle Cookies rising proudly from its Icing. 
A distant Relative to the Hostess CupCake, you could buy 611.5 at 50 cents apiece and feed the Downtrodden and Homeless with the Latter, if you make the Choice to serve instead of being served. Yet, it is still nice to dream.  Some People count Sheep; others bake pricey high-end CupCakes that get posted on Twitter and Instagram. How’s that going to appear on their Tombstone? We are not discussing the Pizza here.  
Does anyone know where the nearest CupCake Pawn Shop is?   So much for Processed Baked Goods and Goodies.  Here’s to Love and Golden Sprinkles and Fantasies.  I wonder if they take VISA or MASTERCARD.

And above all else, as the Title of  THE DAILY SPLURGE asks:  What did the Rest of this Meal look like?  Lettuce know…

SANTA iS RETiRiNG ©2014 and he told ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith why.


A Holiday Story & Script by:
ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith

Screenwriter – Author – Eventologist - Promoter

Koopersmith’s Global Communications

“People read what ASK writes about…”

Chicago – Illinois USA


Santa is retiring. 
Not really, he’s quitting.
He has had enough.
After this year.  
His Finale.
Evidently, The Clauses have tallied up the Crime Stat(istic)s across the Planet and have determined  that more and more People  are ‘naughty’ than nice, more than ever before.  Therefore, with Feelings hurt and Hearts broken (shattered like Icicles), Santa is cashing in his Chips (Chocolate Chips, of course, derived from those tasty Snacks and Morsels the Good Boys & Girls leave him every December 24), hanging up the ceremonial Red and White Suit (evidently, it’s going to be pressed, picked up and donated to the Smithsonian) and he is looking for a Good Home for the Reindeer (all 9 of them).  He must.  For the Sake of the Reindeer, the Ground is softening; the North Pole is melting into Big Puddles.  Reindeer have Hooves. As Mammals, they were not born with Fins, Flippers or slippery Skin like Fish to endure a Nautical Existence.  The Elves, of course, will receive a nice Severance Pay Package, unlike those that Blue Collar Workers receive from fancy Fortune 500 Companies (across the World) that outsource and/or are not even giving Workers a menial 20-Hour Work Week Plan.  Ah, at long last, Santa will get to sleep-in.  But how did this ever happen?  What went wrong?  Who is responsible?  How did this ever happen?  The Story lies ahead…


In the Imagination of ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmithin a 50 Page Copyrighted Manuscript that will be transformed into a Book and then rewritten into a Screenplay.  Angel Investors will be needed as this has all the Earmarks of becoming a Stage-Play on-Broadway – off-Broadway, anywhere there is a Stage where Santa can indulge and tell us his Side of ‘The Story.’

Feeling Wealthy? #SplurgeAndSpend $195,000,000 on this Place. I mean Palace. How ASK: The Queen of Splurge promotes Luxury Real Estate. 1 #Tweet + 1 #Blog + 1 #Hashtag @ a Time, for Starters.

National Splurge Day’s The Daily Splurge #139 for Friday, November 7, 2014 may just be (without and beyond the Shadow of a Doubt), the largest Real Estate Splurge in the History of the USA.  That’s because it deals with a Home (more at the Compound – Palace State or eState Levels) that is the most expensive PoP: Piece of Property yet cited by The Media. 

What will $195,000,000 buy? That is the usual Question ASK, The Queen of Splurge (Creator /Founder/Originator & Owner of National Splurge Day ©1994 & The Daily Splurge & YOTS:  Years Of The Splurges ©2010) asks when a Topic of this Nature presents itself (i.e.: appears in the Media so it makes us think and dream large – larger than Life, that is).

Evidently, right off the Bat (a 24-karat insured Bat @ that), if the Purchaser is extremely generous and/or s/he decides to give $1,000,000 to his closest 195 Facebook or Twitter Friends, then 195 sure-fast Friends, that’s a given, will be secured for life, or until that Amount is exhausted. That's a Lot of Exhaust, per ASK's Cal-Q-lations.  We can all agree that this is most certainly a wonderful Way to start out the Holiday-Gift-Giving Season. 

Indeed, a Time of Splurging, when the Sky is the limit – to some/sum People.

However, there are about 195,000,000 Ways to split that Pie, beginning by giving a Buck/Dollar to the lowest on the Economical Rung: Those 195,000,000 who make $1 or less a Day.  Those who live far below the Subsistence or Poverty Levels found across our Granite Planet.  There’s a Demographic right there, that would surely consider that Amount a SPLURGE - a Treat - a Blessing in and of itself. 

“It all depends on what Side of the Bank Account you are on,” Koopersmith deducts.

ENTER:  Palazzo di Amore

Embodying Elegance, Optimum Grace and Sophistication. Every Comfort has been considered and every Detail meticulously included.

It's all about Palazzo di Amore where it's full-fledged Article is entitled:

Yes, you too, can read more about this Palacial Property online at:

in case you are unable to afford this Amount of Luxury all in one Place - Palace.  My Guess is that the Real Estate Agent will require all  potential Buyers to sign an Agreement that they can afford  this Home; otherwise, it will become a Gawker’s Piece and those who live in Beverly Hills, just hate Sight-See-ers who come and stare.

Vaguely in the Background, transcending Time & Space, I can hear my Two Dear Bubbies say:  “Oy, veys meer…is that a Splurge?  If not, then what is?” 

For all my Friends who are Real Estate Agents, they are dying and vying to get their Hands on this Property. It spells out an Early Retirement for them.  Imagine that Windfall if sold to the ‘Highest Bidder’ – evidently a Celebrity, Movie Director, Lottery Winner and/or High Tech Silicon Valley Guru who will have a hey-day with those Property Taxes.  Don't quit your Day Job, that's for sure.

Say...Buddy, can you spare a Wing?    


ACCOMPANYING TWEET of November 7, 2014 – 12:05 PM CST:  #ASK #QueenofSplurge cites #SPLURGE OF A LIFETIME: $195,000,000 Palace that U & 194 of UR MillionPals can buy now:

National Splurge Day’s The Daily Splurge #140 for Saturday, November 8, 2014 is rooted in yesterday's Palacio Blog and further delves into The Realm of SPLURGING when Money is (evidently) no Issue.  As you will recall Agents were asking $195,000,000 for this Beverly Hills Home.


With Twelve (12) Bedrooms as Part of this Estate and an important one at that, one can only wonder about buying Furniture for a Property that huge.  First, of course, the Primary Purchase would be THE BED.  More than likely, THE BED has to be the most expensive BED IN THE WORLD.  A Cot won’t due. The complete Essence of the Home must add to its Richness.  Who sleeps on that Bed?  Can a Pea be felt near its Core because THE BED is that sensitive?  Is an expensive BED all the more comfortable? 


Of course, a Web Page is devoted to the Question of:

What is the most expensive Bed in the World?


Emil Anton, the Writer estimates those BEDS high-end from $50,000 to well over $1,000,000. For that Amount, I’d expect Breakfast in Bed served every Day, 24/7 and around the Clock. 


Ten of the Most Expensive Beds In The World are featured on their own Page.  Here at SPLURGE CENTRAL, We are smitten with:

#1 Baldacchino Supreme Bed ~ Price: $6.3 million

#2 Magnetic Floating Bed ~ Price: $1.6 million (what I call the non-bed. When you view its Image you will see why.  Show me a Pillow and I’m half-way there). 

#3 Jado Steel Style Gold Bed ~ Price: $676,550  (in Gold, mind you). 

#4 Parnian Furniture Bed ~ Price: $210,000


#7 Cosmovoide Bed ~ Price: $60,000

 A special thank you to Emil Anton, a Web-Entrepreneur with over 4 years of Experience in the Digital Luxury Industry, Founder of some of the most visited Online Properties, Event Speaker, LifeStyle Enthusiast!

You’re able to take it from here for the next Query for tomorrow that may be:

What are the most expensive Bed Linens in the World/


But, of course, in our Heart of Hearts, We certainly know the Best Part of THE BED is who you are bedding down with.  That’s a SPLURGE that Money won’t or can’t buy (but it comes awfully close).



National Splurge Day’s The Daily Splurge #141 for Sunday, November 9, 2014 is again rooted in Friday's Palacio Blog and still further delves into The Realm of SPLURGING when Money is (hardly) an Issue. 

The AP: Asking Price for this luxurious Beverly Hills Home is:  $195,000,000.  What continued to pique our Attention here at SPLURGE CENTRAL is the number of Bathrooms in this Home.  23 is that Numeral.  According to the 53,000 Square Feet that the Palace-Place covers, they must have deducted that 23 Bathrooms would be sufficient for 23 People needing those Facilities.  However, when We at SPLURGE CENTRAL compute ‘The Math,’ if Two (2) People were nesting in each of the 12 Bedrooms, then you’d think that each  Person should have their own Bathroom.  Someone is missing out.  That’s Tragic. I take it $195,000,000 doesn’t buy as much as it used to. 

Of course with that FUN closing One Line Zinger on the above Opening Paragraph, We plan to go much farther and discover:

What are the Top Ten most expensive Bathrooms in the World?

Evidently, 23 of them should be in this Home of all Homes, Palace of all Palaces – Palacio if you like the European Take on IT all and there are lots to Take-In. 

And, once again, We have googled our Way into some of the most incredibly luxurious Places on the Planet, that if it had not been for Google, none of us would be experiencing this Degree of  Formal Decadence. 

How pricey can these Bathrooms be?  Picking our Favorite, We will also include the Price Tag, which, of course, is added to the Expense of instilling the Finest in this Abode and similar ones across our Granite Planet. 

Our Findings show that:  

One Marble Bathtub in this glamorous bathroom is $17 million.

One Bathroom has a Fireplace in its center. Apparently for the Times when the Hot Water is plugged up or in Times of Drought. 

One ‘smart’ Bathroom even releases Scents. Hopefully, one of your 23 Housemates do not have Allergies.


The most expensive Bathroom (made entirely of Gold) is $2.3 million.  Extravagantly expensive is not how I’d spend the allocated $2.3 million.  After all has been said and done, the Bathroom still remains the Bathroom; not an Out-House.  I could deal with a few Fog-Free Mirrors though or a Magic Mirror created to highlight the Lines of a Life lived past 60. 

Entering  these Bathrooms We find Toilets.  The lowest priciest Toilet begins at $5,000, but the most handsome was the Dagobert commanding $14,000; the Moon River Art Toilet coming in at $750,000. However, the Earthliest of them all is entitled:  Hang Fung Gold Toilet for $5,000,000, the Grandest Toilet of all Toilets. However, if you are planning any Intergalactic Trips, the International Space Station Toilet retails at $19,000,000.  Why?  That’s a good Question, but We all know the Answer, don’t we.      

Installing a $5,000,000 Toilet in each of these 23 Bathrooms seems a bit ostentatious, doesn’t it.  I guess $195,000,000 leaves your Spending Field wide open.

The Joys of Toys on ToysDays. Selective Creative & Academic Writings on Man's Faves via The Queen of Splurge: ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith, a Lifelong Toy Collector since Birth. Blog #1150.


National Splurge Day’s The Daily Splurge #138 for Thursday, November 6, 2014 is a waged Mixture of what happens when TOYS take-over.  Granted yesterday's THE DAILY SPLURGE dealt with the Board Game Monopoly that just celebrated its 79TH Birthday, this is mere and sheer Coincidence, of which supposedly none ever truly exist.

This Comp(osition) is a waged Mixture of what happens when TOYS take-over.  
It happens far too often than most of you think.  Why this is so is because TOYS are considered 1 of the top 3 Items in which to SPLURGE ON.  Reporting on ALL THINGS SPLURGE-WORTHY, that is one of the Assignments here at SPLURGE CENTRAL that is tracked and recorded to the Best of our Abilities & Know-How the last 20+ years since National Splurge Day ©1994 has been an Asset to the  Calendrical Treasure Trove ensuring Events, both far and wide, get their fair-share of Recognition.  Here and there. Basically everywhere a Product or Brand is that needs to be splurged on. 

In my colorful World and dramatical Realm of calendarizing and making sure Issues are ‘timed’ as correctly as they must be, being the Major Competition of any Card Company (with over 1,900 HOLIDATES to my ASKian Name that are designed to increase Understanding and Education in and for all People), We only have Thirteen (13) TOYSdays left till Christmas arrives, the Head Honcho of Holidays for some peculiar Reason, when the most TOYS are purchased by the most People in any Single and Skinniest Unit or Fraction of Time.

For those not sure what a TOYSday is, TOYSday is the Term applied to the Slang Pronunciation of the Weekdays referred to as:

Tuesday and Thursday

that was created by ASK in order to have yet another Good Reason to SPLURGE on TOYS.  Most endearing to Koopersmith, this is because she is also in the Process of penning 7 Books & 7 Movie Scripts that pertains to her personal TOY Collection, now vintage at 62+ years old, as she has been collecting them since Birth on Saturday, August 9, 1952.  That alone is a good enough Reason to strictly appreciate what the Commodity of TOYS brings to any Crib, Table, Chair or Treasure Box.  Four (4) of the 7 Books and Scripts are complete. One has already beat-out 3,164 other Submissions in an International Screenplay Competition, based in Hollywood in July of 2010. 

RETURNING TO THOSE TOY DATES:  Those Dates of extreme Relevance are:

Tuesday: November 11, 18, 25 (1 Month until Christmas)

Thursday: November 13, 20, 27 (Thanksgiving in the USA)

Tuesday: December 2, 9, 16, 23 (30TH is a Tuesday)

Thursday: December 4, 11, 18, 25 (BINGO: As in the Game, of course. Christmas Day falls on a Thursday during 2014, keeping the Charm of TOYS-day going all the strong(er))

January 1, 2015 is a Thursday so that your Toys can be played with. That only seems fair enough.  Is there a finer Way in which to begin the New Year? 

This is not to say TOYS cannot be played with the same Fervor on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, as they should be.

Why it’s far better to SPLURGE every Day of every Year rather than on #BlackFriday, thus enhancing your Shopping Experience & Knowledge of the Open Marketplace, an On-Going Serial by ASK: Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith/The Queen of Splurge & Creator of National Splurge Day ©1994 (amongst other popular Holidates To Celebrate) & The Daily Splurge ©2010.


National Splurge Day’s The Daily Splurge #137 for Wednesday, November 5, 2014 cites the Fact that Today is the 309TH Day of the Year (310TH in leap years) on the Gregorian Calendar. With 56 more Days listed until the New Year 2015 unfolds and until the End of the Year, there will be a(ny) Number of Splurges now available and luring you in during this Period, dependent on how splurge-able you are or may become.  


The Initial Impetus to kickstart the Splurge Season, compiled of Chanukah – Christmas – Kwanzaa is a Time when the BEST INTEREST of who is the Object of your Splurge starts to formulates during this impending Period.


WHO you are going to SPLURGE on
WHAT you plan on giving them

are of tantamount Importance and for a very good Reason.  Black Friday is slated for Friday, November 28, 2014; however, my Holidate, NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY ©1994 and its subsequent Off-Spring: YOTS: Years Of The Splurges ©2010 are Events that Retail & Resale Merchants absolutely adore. 


Perhaps one of the most fun and memorable SPLURGES – Gifts you can make Today deals with the Fact that on Tuesday, November 5, 1935 (during World War II & The Great Impression: 


Parker Brothers launched the Game of Monopoly


which Today covers every Topic & Subject matter that matters, conceivable and in conceivable and makes for a mighty fine Gift for Gamesters and Collectible Collectors.  “No matter what,” states ASK, ‘The Queen of Splurge’ & Pop Culture Maven, “Splurging has had a Monopoly on all of us since Materialism reared it Marketing Head and we have grown accustomed to its ever-changing Face.”
