I bet it was a mistake as the other mask don't have the free shipping. I wouldn't put it past Memebox to cancel all the orders as they have done it before when they made a mistake. But hopefully those that grabbed them will still get them as it was a great deal.

hope they don't cancel,

I'm slightly tempted by the spider mask set just for its weirdness. There was a Hong Kong site that was selling it for $100HK though (but doesn't ship international from what I can make out or I'd have snapped it up). However, I've still got all the Ettang pots to go through and the winter mask box coming plus god know how many Etude House masks...plus others so I don't think I can justify spending any cash (or points) on it. Will wait to see what's released on the 15th, if nothing interesting and its still available then I "may" use my points but if not, I'm in no rush to get anything else..

I think they may cancel, as it was surely a mistake! (The other variety did not have free shipping!)

So slightly off the current topic.

 

I had my first Memebox order mistake.

 

I don't know whose order I got but it's not mine.

 

What was the email address that worked best for anyone who has had this issue?

I look forward to seeing the naked boxes on Thursday! They used plural so I am curious to see what they prepared!

My favourite bit in news today was the tag line, "Are you ready to fall back in love with K-beauty?"

Ummmm... We never fell out of love with K-Beauty, we fell out of love with Memebox.

Gimme a break.

Damn it I'm trying to sign up for the affiliate program through the new service. The whole tax form thing is going right over my head. I'm in Canada and the site info says to contact an IRS expert. Um.. ya, no idea where I"d find one of those here. There's some forms to fill out for the IRS or they withhold 30% or something? Bah, not going to bother with the hassle unless I miraculously got a crazy amount of traffic on my stuff, haha! Not worth it at the moment.
Anyone else finding it a pain in the ass to sign up with? Maybe it's not so annoying if you're in the US.

I took a cursory look at it, and came to a similar conclusion. Tedium to the extreme. I vowed to come back to it when I was wearing a different brain. We should probably try to share info about this with one another... It's bound to make the process easier for us all. Don't give up, it might be worth it in the long run. Maybe some other bloggers who are already familiar with this third party company can chime in. Although I haven't yet checked it out... The Affiliate's thread might be the place to have this convo and get some help. That's where I'll be looking once I'm in the right headspace to sort it out. Hopefully there is some chatter about it.

Just wanted to pop in and say HI really quick!  I've been off the board ever since New Years.  My kitty was diagnosed with diabetes so I was very stressed having to learn all about that.  I joined a new forum, one for owners of feline diabetics, so I've been spending all my time over there trying to learn about how to take care of my kitty.  

 

There hasn't been much to talk about Memewise anyway... I just got my Global #18 box in the mail today -- first impressions were good.  I'm excited to try the weird shower jelly and hopefully the Beetox cream is good.

Memebox really needs to figure their shit out, of they want to keep running contests in the US. The golden ticket contest? There was no way to enter without purchase, which is 100% illegal. When I called them on it, they sent me a link to enter without purchase, but of course, I never heard back from it. When I emailed back to ask what happened with my entry, they asked me for my order number, and then just never responded when I explained my situation.

The Attorney General is serious about contest law, and of memebox doesn't want to spend what little money they are currently making from us on legal fees, I suggest they get it together.

Update to this - they just got back to me (I'm assuming they read my complaint here, and that's why). They offered me the $3 coupon that lots of people got. Which kind of defeats the purpose - if I never had a chance to actually win a a larger prize, what kind of contest was it...

I'm not too happy with Memebox and their contests either right now.  Since they appear to be simply refusing to honor their part of the bargain.  It's ridiculously illegal and I've been nice up til now but uhhh... It's illegal to have a contest, pick a winner and then never give the winner their winnings.

I'm so sorry to hear about this, always so sad, but my Aunt and Uncle where also in the same situation and gave their Cat insulin daily. I remember it was quite pricey though. This wasn't an issue for them but thinking back on it (and inflation) Im leaning towards my husband's uber pricey asthma meds that keep him breathing, even with insurance, are a little higher on my priority list. Call me selfish....but whatever you decide to do I wish you best. :) Such a hard thing when our pets are like family....ours are (literally) our babies and I can't imagine being without them.

 

On a MemeNote, I haven't purchased any of the new boxes even though I've kind of wanted to. I've picked up a new (old) hobby and have been throwing exorbitant amounts of money into that while being away and trying to pay attention to my husband more. After 10 years I'm thinking he probably deserves it. :)

@@MemeJunkie the insulin is insanely expensive.  I'm thankful I met the people on that forum though, now I know my cat has a chance to go into remission and probably won't even need the insulin that long!  The hardest part has been learning to test her blood before every injection.  But yes, she is my baby, so I will do everything I have to do to take care of her.

 

Whoever said the Skinfood Black Sugar Scrub mask smelled like a lozenge wasn't kidding..... yikes!!  I'm lemony fresh!

@@tiedyedlifestyle how did you notice that your sweetie-pie had diabetes? Did this just show up in the regular checkup bloodwork or something?

 

I always worry about these types of things with my 2 cats. As they age, our pets do seem to get stricken with the same types of diseases we humans get :(

@@biancardi

I noticed that she had lost a bunch of weight, and was suddenly acting really thirsty and begging for water all the time.  Since she was drinking a lot more, she was using the litter box a lot more too.  Those signs prompted me to take her in to see what was wrong.  I didn't want to see the signs at first... They did a blood/urine workup and that's when it was discovered :(  Switching her from dry food to low carb wet food has had a positive impact on her numbers and is part of the reason I don't think she will be on insulin forever.  ETA:  I later learned that weakness in the back legs is a sign of feline diabetes as well. .. I had noticed she was having a hard time jumping up to the sink sometimes, sometimes she'd miss and fall.  So that's a sign, too.

 

 

off to wash this mask off!

Good to see you. :)

So sorry about your kitty having a chronic illness. One of my Maltese ( the 4 lb. AKC Grand Champion, retired)  has a heat/ resp. disorder which really upset us when it was diagnosed about 6 months ago. The good news is that she seems stable now with 3 medications twice a day. 

I won't be traveling until her sweet little life is over..which I hope is a long time away. She is 11, and she deserves so much more than we, her late in life adoptive family, can ever give her. 

I applaud your devotion to Kitty very much!!!

 

I knew I forgot something when I was bathing tonight- the mint shower jelly. :) Although I'm going to see what it does in my Jacuzzi jetted bath tub, LOL.

LOLOL, I actually DID use a product from a Memebox as a cleanser in my bath tonight and I <3 <3 <3 it now!

It's the Migabee Honey Pureberry Oil Soap.

I am SO addicted!! It's oil, it's pure and great for dry skin, and it cleans face and body skin. 

 

So, not a total loss tonight. I'm always so thrilled to find a great body product in a Memebox because, IMO, they are very few and far between.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
