So the past few days have been very interesting, between the Sephora saga and today is my dad’s angel anniversary; 11 years ago today. I have been having mood swings and all kinds of crankiness. Usually, my patience can be kind of unpredictable. I usually like to keep to a schedule and if I get off schedule I get very upset frustrated etc. with regard to the Sephora saga, the other day I was interested in getting my free 500 point reward: Tarte Cosmetics Quench Hydrating Primer. I was very unhappy with the fact that you currently are unable to redeem gifts over a certain point amount. So having to make a cash purchase just to get your gift is absolutely ridiculous. When I couldn’t redeem my gift in the store I sent an aggravated tweet to Sephora. Within a few hours, I had a reply from them that they’d forward my displeasure. So with my #LuckyDayApp $10 off, I was able to correct the mistake I made yesterday and traded in one item for another unit of the 500 points VIB Prize. Mind you when I got home from my activities today, I placed an order and I’m getting another one: the third primer along with some setting spray which I need for my back up drawer. Speaking of back up drawer I know I have 10 extra drawers because I went to Michael’s this morning and purchased a second 10 drawer multicolor craft trolley which I use as a makeup trolley. Lord help me if I need a third one. In other news, today is the 11th anniversary of my father’s passing and every year for the past 11 years has been very difficult this time of year from mid-March until after Easter. In fact, any day/holiday specifically is more difficult without my dad around but I am very blessed to have had him in my life. Even though he was not my biological father, he was my dad a dad who accepted me for who I knew if and or buts. You will always be one of my favorite angels and I know he’s always watching over me and the family. So for lunch today we all took a road trip up to his hometown and had lunch etc pizza and cheesesteak. Yes, I’m rambling and being random but that’s how my mind is tonight. Tomorrow’s going to be back to some kind of normalcy. Junk food for the month is done if you can even call it junk food, I no longer eat like that very often. So I think it’s bedtime for now and I’ll get back to regular blogging tomorrow, hopefully, there’s gonna be something worth sharing.
So yesterday or the day before I got my monthly rewards alert and I am VIP-Rouge. I do not normally use my reward points unless there is a product I really want to try with it already in my arsenal I need to be replenished. This month there was or is a face primer/moisturizer that I love and I have used it before but I want to upgrade to full-size. Rainforest Of The Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. Anyway I made the mistake of online ordering after finding out that the reward level of 500 points is not redeemable in store-not happy about that and I made that very damn clear on a tweet and they said in response they are going to be forwarding that information to the rewards department-anyway when I made the purchase online I forgot to use my coupon and I I screwed up my order. An order which I cannot fix, So I have to wait for the order to arrive-return the item I don’t want and save my coupon for the next time-if there is a next time that I shop from Sephora. Just like NYX Cosmetics , Returns and edits to orders are apparently either not possible or nearly impossible. So I’m not very happy today it upset me enough that I went into an anxiety attack. So I am going to learn from my mistakes and do more online shopping. Anyway I’m working on my knitting and trying to relax which may not happy for a little while
