Hmm.

So I just got a pretty rude, condescending comment on my Memebox Lip products post.

I do have an IP tracker, and (as usual with mean anonymous comments) I'm pretty positive I know who posted it.

 

Apparently I was mocking Memebox with my horrendously bad swatches.

 

Mkay.

 

I've never gotten a mean comment like that before, but I can't imagine being a bigger blogger and dealing with that on a regular basis. Have you guys ever gotten mean comments before? I don't know how to deal with them honestly lol...Half of me wanted to say "well, feel free to write your own blog post with better swatches you $&%(%" But I didn't. lol

Lol on YouTube been told I have chunky hands and people can't understand me. I just ignore bad comments as tbh most of the time people would never say the same things to your face as they do online.

I wasn't really bothered by what they said, considering the claims they were making toward me were completely false- (and hey- I've got chunky hands and I'm proud of em! LOL) But I never know how to react to them...do I just delete them? Do I respond respectfully, tell them to f-off? haha...I just don't know the tactful way to handle it. 

 

Constructive criticism I can handle- being mean for the sake of being mean is just kind of sad on their part.

yes, I have gotten mean comments before  - that is why I now make people post at least once moderated before they can post freely - the cowards who post like this will just go into moderation and I will trash their comment.

 

  I am sorry, but my blog is not for some a-hole to make mean comments and have an axe to grind.

Gotta admit I put up with a lot of crap as a teen from mean people... Won't deal with negativity to me as an adult.

Sorry to hear @@MissJexie that this happened to you. There are always people who are going to be mean and try to put everyone else down. Don't know what's the best way to handle it either but I vote for deleting. You don't need anyone's rude comments on your blog. I feel sorry for those people who feel the need to do that (be mean) to others just to try and make themselves feel better.

Got my check in the mail.

 

I think I would delete a rude comment if it disparaged me personally.  Company rants, I don't care but why should I allow a random internet person to be rude to me?  I'm a person and I have feelings.  And there's really no reason to leave a mean comment on a blog.  Just don't leave a comment at all.  Right?  Like your mother says "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all."  

 

So there is no good reason to leave a personal attack as a comment.  Delete!  Or you could leave it and let us all defend you :D

haha I'll just leave it. I'm sure they'll leave another comment going on and on about how I'm deleting honest feedback or some drama like that. It doesn't make me look bad, it just makes them look kind of sad and pathetic, so they can have at it!

Hey so I just got a random package from Memebox and I opened it to find the Nylon palette!! LOL

 

I didn't order it, so I'm wondering if they're sending it to some of us for review?

I never got an e-mail from Lauren about it, but they have definitely sent me things in the past and then sent me an email about it days later lol

 

Just sayin- keep a lookout on the mailbox!! :D

Gosh, darn it! I just got an email asking where  my SoothingSista review was. Why dont they say that on the card!? It just said we wanted to thank you for all your hard work so here you go. 

 

Luckily I like it so it'll be good but next time I expect some warning!

I figured every free thing they give me, I best get a review up.  And then I email Lauren.

I also review everything they send me although I've been heavily slacking on the Nylon Palette because Im just not that thrilled with it. They use to have Lauren send us an email with talking points and info about the product, now they just send stuff with absolutely no explanation which is kind of dumb IMO lol

I didn't realize this until just a bit ago, but Memebox is part of Skimlinks. As in, I joined Skimlinks (it's like Rakuten but it catches links you've forgotten to make affiliate links and gives you commissions for those sales), put some widget or code on my blog (on self-hosted Wordpress it's a widget), and now when people click on links that I didn't bother to turn into Rakuten links and buy something, the blog gets a commission. I put a general affiliate link disclaimer on all of my blog's pages since even I don't know what's earning the blog a commission, but that was an easy fix. The commission rate seems to be something like 6.7%, so it's not bad at all and it saves me from feeling bad about being lazy. ahaha They have a low payment threshold and I usually just forget that it's there. I'm a fan.

    • A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results.    Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it.  Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapors to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapors.  Take the steam vapors for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt.  Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads.  Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer.
    • 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.
