Recommended Posts

Oh wow. I'm 50/50 on the box I love half, could leave half. I'll try to hit up eBay for the stuff I want.

I'm really looking forward to getting my box! I got the shipping notice today. I love everything in it, minus the key chain. I just think faux fur gets matted and dirty looking rather quickly! The Lancer alone makes it worth the price of the box so I'm very happy! Also loving the hat that came in the September box!

Overall I think it's a good box if you like the Caeden headset but a couple of the prices are super-inflated on this one - $52 notepad (similar ones for 3.99-7.99 at Marshalls/Home Goods) and $41 for a faux fur keychain?

I totally agree with you, and that is what drives me nuts about the LE boxes. Remember that Tai tassel bracelet that was supposedly $97 a box or two ago?

 

I did purchase this one, but I can't say I'm excited for the box to arrive. The headphones are pretty, but let's be honest....they are going to be grimy looking after a few uses. Especially mine, since I wear makeup every day. Plus now I'm getting ads for them from Amazon, advertising $29.99 for the black ones. Anyway, $100 doesn't go very far these days,so I'm ok with taking the chance and I can always use things for gifts.

@@Bizgirlva, I don't really see me using the scarf, if you would like I would be open to a trade or puchase. Just PM me. It never really gets too cold here and it is still hot and humid as 2 hellos.

I scrolled down to the bottom without looking at the spoilers because I still don't have my box.  It is annoying me to no end that it took a week from label creation to get my box to a mailing location.  And now it has taken six, read that SIX, days to go from Sacramento to Los Angeles.  

 

Really?   I could drive it in six or seven hours!

 

And it still has to come to the East Coast.

 

Is everyone else having the same issues?

I got my box yesterday. It isn't my fav LE but most of it will be used. One thing that annoyed me was the scarf already had some of the knit pulled and it was really scratchy :/

Did anyone else's headphones arrive broken?  Mine has the one ear piece completely ripped off :(  They are pretty and aren't bad to listen to but I'm very annoyed by them arriving already ruined.

Oh no - they should replace them quickly I hope.  I was gifting mine and didn't plan on opening them but now I guess I have to.

This seems to be a huge problem on the MSA forum.  Mine aren't ripped, but I discovered the volume control on mine doesn't work at all.

I really need to take mine out of the box and check over.  I still can't figure out what to do with that darn ball of fur!

I actually attached mine to a black tote bag and it is kind of cute.

THE CLEANING PEOPLE STOLE MY HEADPHONES FROM MY DESK.  ARGGGGHHHHHH!!!  That was the thing I was most excited about too, because I listen to a ton of webinars at my desk and earbuds aren't great for all day use.  Ugh I am so mad.

OH, your post made me check mine and they, too, are ripped off one side.  This makes me wonder if these are 'returns' and not first quality products as they problem is so wide-spread.  I filled out the form on the website so we shall see.  These were going to be a gift but I can't gift these!

 

Did you receive a replacemet?

I got an email that they received a shipment of new headphones and will be shipping them out.  Meanwhile, an extra little gift will be sent to make up for the problem.

    • Cleanse your skin twice a day (morning and night) using tepid water and a cleanser that is gentle, fragrance-free and suited to your skin type. Avoid using regular soap, which promotes acne.

    • How it feels to be shopping too much after being on No Buy for a year It's been almost a month now of shopping too much after breaking my No Buy, and I've had a lot of feelings of sadness, guilt, and anxiety. I feel worse than ever about my shopping, because it's creating cognitive dissonance with the new habits I set up last year. I have noticed the following thoughts and feelings: Rip Van Winkle/ROMO Effect - I did not keep up with beauty boxes and promos through all of 2018. I was blissfully ignorant. When I began shopping again, I saw many things I missed during the year, and now have ROMO (Regret on Missing Out). For example, I became aware of all the Sephora Play! Smarts boxes from last year, and wanted to buy them from eBay! This is a little overwhelming! All the dazzling new things and exciting, new to me box programs like Boxyluxe and Ipsy upgrades are even more tempting as I have been away so long.  I feel selfish. When I'm shopping for myself, I feel I should be saving the money to help family members. I began to contribute and share more with family during my No Buy, and now I feel bad focusing so much on myself again. I complained to my cousin that I was sad that my New Years resolutions were a failure. In the middle of all my haul packages I had a little package from her with a Celtic charm in a little green bag and inspirational bookmarks. I felt bad, because she has it really rough. Her husband works for the government, so he has been out of work in this cruel winter. Here she is sending me a package. I should be doing for her and for my other family members instead of all this selfish hauling.  I'm scared of getting a lot of new stuff! This is new. For a year I had a system. Everything was organized just so. I knew how much I had of each thing. I was getting close to the end of using all my back stocks of skin and hair care. Now when I go to haul, I want to buy things, but then I feel bad because there won't be room for them in the storage I have set up, and it will take me that much longer to use everything. I did not feel this way before being on No Buy for a year.  I learned a little bit about what really works for me during the No Buy year. I did a whole year of painstaking experimentation with Mary Kay eye shadow sample cards, and learned that many colors don't work for me. When shopping resumed, I was ready to grab for anything with a pretty package again, but then I recalled that those shades do not work for me. When I see all the fabulous new things, and get new things in the mail, it makes the things I have look old and tired. When I was not shopping, I loved my things, and I would not dream of parting with them. But when I began seeing new things, I had an impulse to throw the old stuff out, which my No Buy self would be dead against.  I'm scared of going into more debt. I worked so hard to pay off debt through all of 2018, and I have been opening up new credit cards to shop. I keep telling myself I'll use them in a controlled way, but that never worked in the past. I'm scared and want them to hurry up and come in the mail so I can close them. I won't have peace of mind until I can get rid of them.  This whole mess up has left me feeling depressed. The bad feelings outweigh the fun, yet part of me still wants to buy. I want to try to do it in a controlled way. I'm hoping I'll be calming down since it's been almost a month now.  I guess these feeling of cognitive dissonance show that my No Buy was a success in that it set up good habits or new attitudes, but my No Buy self is fighting, fighting, with my old shopping self. 
    • I got another little Shop Miss A haul: Enamel Clover Stud Earrings in White - very beautiful Barielle nail treatment cream Nail Strengthener in a pen form with a brush at the end  Body oils - African Musk; Baby Powder; White Linen Type - these smell good, especially the African Musk.  Excellent buy for $6.00.  Two more Shop Miss A hauls on the way. 
    • I calmed down since I saw the new Wet and Wild Rebel Rose Collection. I was so excited when I first saw it, and wanted to get the complete collection box for $59.99! I ended up just ordering the Rose Multi-Use Oil for now. It's the item I wanted most - it's in a beautiful glass bottle and has actual rose petals floating inside the bottle. I love it! For $7.99, I think it's a great buy!  Next on my list would be the gorgeous black rose deign blush brush for $7.99. And maybe the toner for $7.99. I think I can be happy with just those three items. I narrowed it down, but man I am in love with this line! Wet and Wild says this collection marks a new direction of them beginning to get into skin care. I am excited for that, because if this is a sign of things to come, we will be able to have beautiful packaging and ingredients at a great price.
