It's so fun seeing you open your gifts a little at a time. It's Christmas every day at make up talk!

At first I thought you had sent me a pair of earrings which totally caught me off guard. I thought you may have made a mistake when wrapping. Lol! Soon enough I realized they were just apart of the beautiful little ribbon holding a lovely new bottle in its wrapping. When I opened it I felt a pure and simple joy. Not because I got a gift but rather because someone put a lot of thought and effort into it all. Thank you.

You're so bad! Lol. I should send you some polish named after coal! You're too sweet Donna. I truly appreciate the gift and especially the card. I'll turn a blind eye and pretend I don't know how much you spent but you really shouldn't have. frown.gif

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. I never would have imagined I'd become apart of such a loving and supportive community.

I don't even know which to start with. I'm especially curious about the bottom three of the Nails Inc. When I saw the Butter London I was instantly reminded of wine. Love the color hate the taste. So I bought some bourbon whiskey to go with my mani night (Day off yay!). biggrin.gif

You're killing me Donna. <3

I wish I had participated now. I feel so bad not having even been apart of this and receiving something. I tried posting here earlier but there was no button to quote and no place to reply. It turns out the mobile version doesn't show you the pop-up that tells you this is part of a group you need to join to be able to post in.

Thank you again Donna. I know where you live now. I will have my gift revenge! smile.gif

The Butter London was from an ipsy bag or some such.  I didn't buy it special...I just thought you'd like it!   You remind me of my nephew and I've developed a soft spot for you because you're totally adorable lol.  Merry Christmas, Sweetie!

I went to the Post Office that I delivered the package from & was told to call Consumer Affairs. When I called I was told that I can file a claim in 30 days. Hello, I don't want to file a claim I want my box!!! I'm really hoping that this is all a mistake and the box will get delivered soon. So now I'm wondering if I should put together another box for my Santee? I would feel horrible if the package was "lost" & she has nothing to open for Christmas. frown.gif 
What do you guys suggest?

My Local Post Office is staffed by ZOMBIES. Please don't stress about the tracking not being updated - for some of the workers, handing them a scanner is like using a laser pointer with a cat on catnip.   I get packages all the time that show statuses like: "Package Not Found","Invalid Tracking Number", "Left Sorting Facility, NJ (I live in Atlanta), and "Sacrificed to Chthulu" when the package is sitting on the kitchen table opened.    

 

If memory serves on Saturday we were still climbing out of all the flight delays and then we were hit with the ugly weather that people all over the country are dealing with. The USPS uses commercial flights to send mail so they would be affected by the weather and delays as well.   

 

By the way, if you read their ridiculous terms, they don't actually guarantee that Priority Mail will arrive in 2-3 days.  

 

MAIL CLASS DELIVERY STANDARD CONTACT CUSTOMER SERVICE AFTER:
First-Class Mail® 2 - 3 days (not guaranteed) 5 or more Days from the date of mailing
Priority Mail® 1, 2, or 3 days (not guaranteed) 5 or more Days from the date of mailing
Priority Mail Expressâ„¢ 1 - 2 days (guaranteed) Guaranteed Delivery Date/Time Missed
Standard Postâ„¢ 2 - 8 days (not guaranteed) 14 or more Days from the date of mailing

 

Edited to add:  Oh and if the package is lost, you can file a claim and it's like giving your Santee a $50.00 Gift Certificate since all priority mail comes with $50 insurance.

So, I opened a few more SS gifts to cheer myself up. Yay!

I love this Sephora perfect pair mini duo. What a cute color combination! Awesome.

I actually don't own any Sephora OPI really. So, I am also looking forward to trying this brand. Yay!

Your Secret Santa loves you lol!  I'm sorry you had such a bad morning but a little present makes everything better!

I haven't had any issues with things being lost but I've noticed in the last week that some packages have been just a day late...either ones I'm sending or receiving.  I'm putting that down to holiday volume.  My post office is like the best in the world...it pays to live in a tiny town, I guess.

Not adorable. Anything but that. D: I have no idea what an ipsy bag is so I'll assume it was a great deal and the BL was just a dupe of one you already had. It makes me feel better so there. :) I'll quit fussing and just accept. Thank you Donna.

@Animezing Im sorry to hear your having trouble with the shipping, hopefully its moving along and will get safely to your SS. I know just recently I shipped out priority through USPS and it was stuck in one place almost 2 weeks so I had to call around and track the phone number down to the sorting facility. Eventually it arrived safely to the destination but it does make it frustrating. I also have pretty good experience with UPS so I try to use them as often as possible personally.

Blissful is sooo pretty, you're going to love it! It's a really neutral pale pink/nude when it's warm.

 

I was so excited to see that you wanted thermals, because I had been wanting to try them also!

And since it was flat rate shipping, it only made sense to buy a bunch...right? :rolleyes:

We haven't had any yet and I'm already over it.  I hate winter.  Thank God my father had the foresight to move us the hell out of Newfoundland.  I'd never leave the house and be all reclusive sitting by the stove in 5 cardigans and a blanket.

I hate the cold, but love the snow. It is still in the upper 20's here.

Most of the boards I participate on are all Geeky ... I love the sense of community on here, the generosity and the fun.  I'm glad I wandered over here to lurk on the 'What Nail Polish Are You Wearing" thread.    Y'all are just wonderful.

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
