Sigh, I decided to risk it and buy some cute affordable clothes from Lulus for our trip to St. Maartens next month and got dinged with over 50% in duties!!! A $300 purchase turned into $480.  

On the bright side, I like everything that arrived-it's just not as cheap as I originally thought.

OMG no!!! Smiley Sad

ouch!! @heartsmyface

 

I try and keep my international orders under $75... which seems to be the magic "don't bother to tax" amount, but it stings so hard when I get hit with duty. That's why it called DOODY.

 

I have bought several orders for my upcoming Mexico trip from this awesome online store called HIPPIEBOHO that does made-to-order stuff outta Thailand. YOu be like "MAKE IT 2" LONGER" and they just do it, no extra charge. I love it because they are so inexpensive and do all sizes XS - 7X!!!

 

I have 3 of these - so frikkin comfy

 They ship so fast too.. I got mine to Canada in 10 business days, with tracking. Shipping is so reasonable. if you are looking for anything still, like cotton dresses or coverups, I highly recommend it.

Ohhhhh!  That is super cute!  @InsomniacmuffinUnfortunately, as I am a little curvy, when I try to pull off flowy boho, I get mistaken for pregnant....  Smiley Sad

Ouhhhhhh, I have to check them out, thanks!!!!!  I'm mostly looking for light and breezy long sleeved shorts rompers but a kaftan is a good idea.   

Yeah, I get away with no duties a lot so I just went for it.  I knew it was a probability I'd get charged but I wasn't expecting that much.  Normally it's around $60 or so.  I swear they randomly choose an amount to charge.  I bet they have a little wheel they spin and I just lost this round. 

Mexico sounds fun!  I've never been even though it's so close.  It's a definite bucket list location.

I tried looking the other way when they used condoms, tried ignoring the balloon trend but now this?  I can't...just

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This has to be a yolk, because this is eggs-actly the thing that no one called for. Folks must be scrambling for new gimmicks and they're ap-poaching this all wrong.

I'm waiting for someone to be pranked with a raw egg

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Now THAT is something I would watch. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

"Today we're just going to take this egg and lightly dab to blend out the foundation....and OHHHH!!!! WHAT THA??!!! NOOOO! Um, well that was a fail, it appeared the egg I grabbed was raw and now I'm covered in yolk.....looks like I should move this into my hair for a hair mask!"

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

In a world where food security is a serious  issue everywhere..even more so in the recovery of the world economic crisis...  let's waste perfectly edible nutrition on this kind of stupidity.

 

*insert eye roll*

 

I get so mad when I see food wasted like this.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Omg, when will it end? -__- 

I wish people would stop comparing things to the Beauty Blender. A condom, balloon, or egg is in no way similar to a Beauty Blender. Just admit that you're applying makeup with various random objects. If you wanna put on foundation with an egg thats your business, but don't say it's just like a Beauty Blender, 'cause we all know it's not.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

LOL I saw this on insta and didn't bother watching. Continued scrolling. It's getting ridiculous Smiley Very Happy

So... 

 

I get a out-of-the-blue email from someone who saw my LinkedIn profile through a connection and wants to discuss me coming to their company. Pretty interesting opportunity, definitely going to the interview...

 

Except.. I GOT COOTIES!

I got a cold-sore a few days ago, right smack in the middle of my bottom lips, that is luckily in the end stages of 'healing'. 

 

So now I'm trying to see what color lipstick is 'professional yet concealing"  

 

Hmm.. what shade do I have that is a dupe for "Lip Fungas 4 days Healed"

Update for anyone who might have been curious..

 

Went to the job interview, I don't think my lip-disease was too noticeable and I just played it like it was nothing.

 

 

On the downside.. the company really doesn't have their stuff together and it's not an opportunity I'm interested in. I was a little hesitant to take the interview because they didn't disclose the job title, but I'm currently an HR Manager so decided to assume it was on the same level, or higher.

 

Despite a 1.5 hours interview, they would still not tell me the job title, only all the various (and never-ending!!) responsibilities I would have. I was so-so on this, BUT since the role was interesting and had some challenges for me that I wanted to add to my resume  I was keen on.. however as soon as I started pushing back for clarification on anything I was shut down. Biggest was that I would manage their training program.. great! Has a budget already been allocated or will I also be putting that together? No.. actually there is no budget, there will never be budget (and then I got lectured on how business comes first and they can't waste peoples times going to training stuff)

 

 

That's when I nope'd the heck outta there.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Sorry to hear that! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Insomniacmuffin Glad you were able to conceal the less than optimal lip situation, but sorry to hear the opportunity was not meant to be.  At least you got practice updating your resume and polishing your interview skills.... 😊

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Too bad it wasn't what you expected and sketchy Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2
