@makeitup305oh no! I hope you find it!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Just a friendly reminder to be extra careful when shopping online this week.  It might be a good idea to keep checking your credit cards for unauthorized purchases (I avoid this until the last minute, but I'm going to check too!) 

 

I signed into Ebates this afternoon, and kept myself signed in.  I just received a spam email with my Ebates password in the subject line, along with the message to "pay up now." 

 

It's disturbing that whoever sent that knew my password.

Absolutely, @Ispend2much6 ! Last year on Black Friday I had a nondescript email from capitol one in my inbox that I’d normally ignore but opened for some reason. Turns out they’d found a suspicious charge and they were right! Crazy good algorithm because I’d been shopping a lot that day and the fraudulent charge was from a place I would normally shop. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@scott1201   That really is amazing!

@Ispend2much6, Thanks for the reminder!

@Ispend2much6, Thanks for the reminder!

@Luvstravel   You're welcome!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is a good reminder @Ispend2much6! Thank you! πŸ˜ƒ

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@itsfi   You're welcome!  I know when my eyes are glazed over because I'm trying to decide which deals to buy, nothing else is important, so I need to remind myself. Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Ispend2much6 the scammers are definitely out this time of year!! I keep getting fake emails from Hulu saying someone's using my account and I should click the email to fix it  with my password. Definitely a reminder to always go directly to the website if you suspect there is an issue and never use the links in the emails. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Kim888   Good point.  I almost got caught on one of those (not hulu,) and I'm usually really careful.  There is a scam going around our way where some police imposter calls someone and tells them they didn't show up for jury duty or something, do they have the correct address, and they will be arrested if they don't turn themselves in (this happened to someone who had recently moved.)

They had even somehow linked their phone number to the real police department one, even a badge number.  And because they kept pressuring her to let them come pick her up and escort her, she thinks they were traffickers!  If this is true.

Today, I received my Sephora order. I snagged a Philosophy candle for 500 points. When I opened my box, there sits a fanny pack 😳 instead of my candle. Really wish they would have messed up in my favor, and sent me the fabulous Jo Malone candle πŸ˜‰ I called customer service and they gave my 500 points back, but the candle is of course out of stock.

@Luvstravel @Wow that sucks 

@SportyGirly125, Oh well, things happen. I hope whomever...

@SportyGirly125, Oh well, things happen. I hope whomever snagged that awesome Jo Malone candle received theirs!

RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Luvstravel I am so sorry to hear! I’m sure you wanted to set it on fire when you saw it, but I wish they had sent you the candle. Did they let you keep it? If so maybe you can gift it to someone!

@Cyncynn, It was really so funny. My package was at my door and I picked it up and was wondering what I ordered so large, then I remembered my candle. Took it into the house, thinking I hope it smells wonderful, then opened it up πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I literally picked the fanny pack up still hoping my candle might be under it πŸ₯Ί It's not like it was the mega large Jo Malone candle ( I think then I would have set that fanny pack on fire ) Yes they let me keep the fanny pack.

@Luvstravel Gosh, so frustrating!!!!

Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I used to love wearing red lipstick everywhere. Work, grocery store, home, church, you name it I wore it there. Then just over a month ago I was wearing it at work in the night and a group of men tried to drag me away to somewhere more "private" where "nobody would hear me". I screamed for help and some security guards came and saved me before they could drag me too far or anything worse could happen. I noticed I have worn lipstick once since then. I love red lipsticks so much but have this fear that men will take it as an invitation. I just wish I could wear what I liked for me without the constant fear that something bad will happen.

@ChescaCat, that's really scary. I'm glad you're ok. I ho...

@ChescaCat, that's really scary. I'm glad you're ok. I hope you can enjoy your red lipsticks again soon.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChescaCatI'm so glad you got help! I know this is ultra-heavy, but when I was assaulted, I was a kid. I still frequently struggle with wearing makeup since a lot of times that lead to other altercations at a retail job I had in my teens (or maybe I just felt it was the result of makeup but it was unrelated, who knows).

 

@WinglessOneis absolutely right and I saw a lot in her post I related to, especially the feeling like a hypocrite bit. Ultimately though- there is nothing you can wear, nothing you can do, nothing you can look like that is an invitation. Your experience is not a reflection on you, it is a reflection on the people who did this. From personal experience, healing takes time. There are good days and bad days, but the experience unfortunately will be with you forever. Take time, forgive yourself, remind yourself everyday that you are strong, that you deserve to do and to have the things that bring you joy, and that if some days you don't feel up to the challenge- that is okay too. They will be new days to try again

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ChescaCatI'm so sorry you went through this. @WinglessOne is right - lipstick is not an invitation ever. I hope one day you no longer feel that constant fear and are able to enjoy liking lipstick again. Stay strong <3

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's awful.

 

First and foremost, give yourself a hug if you haven't already.  Like @WinglessOne said, it's some terrible, pathetic, warped person (and I say person loosely) need to assert dominance.

 

You did nothing wrong.  You made no invitation.
