How do you keep a secret!!

Okay ladies, I'm going to need some advice! I'm trying to surprise my sister for her Birthday! I'm going to get us both Carrie Underwood tickets! She wants to go soo bad and tickets go on sale very soon! But i really want to wait till her Birthday to give them to her! Her Birthday is August 6th! I am the worst at keeping secrets from her! I've never been able to surprise her! EVER! How do you refrain from telling someone something your so excited about??

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

Wow, thats a tough one! My trick to keeping secrets.. BLAB TO EVERYONE ELSE!  You can't give in and tell her this time, that's such an awesome gift! Smiley Happy 

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

I might have to blab to everyone else!! She's pregnant and i wanted to do something special for her cause a couple months after the concert she will have her baby! And we love Carrie Underwood and i want it to be so special when she finds out!! Thanks for your advice Diana! Smiley Happy

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

Try to get her focused on something else well anything else just so the suprise isn't ruined, so when you do spring the tickets on her she will be super excited about it.

Wonderful suprise !!!!!!

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

Thanks! I can't wait to see her face truly surprised! I think she will be most shocked that i didn't give in and tell her!! 

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

I use the diversion method. If I am trying to keep my husband's gift a secret, like for his birthday or Christmas, I get him something small and give it to him when I feel like I'm going to burst with telling about the big item. Then I get the thrill of giving something without divulging the big item.

 

Good luck keeping your secret, and don't beat yourself up too much if you cave, I'm sure she'll adore you for thinking up such a fabulous present.

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

I might have to do something along those lines! She's been wanting the Boscia BB cream so i might just get the small one and give it to her as as early Birthday Gift so she thinks that's her present! It was a hard decision to make to even get the tickets! I don't have a job anymore and am going back to school and i planned to use my money for some Makeup/skincare i'm running low on but i'll figure it out when the time comes. I would rather give her a huge surprise she can remember forever! 

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

How sweet! I think the mini diversion gift is brilliant, I am terrible at keeping secrets and waiting to give presents, so I might have to try this method out. I'm sure she will be thrilled about it whether you end up holding out or giving in and telling her early, but good luck avoiding it! We are always here to blab to if you need to talk about it!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

Lol Thanks @Rikkie! As soon as i made the decision i was like i have to tell someone!! And BeautyTalk is just the place to do it!!!

Re: How do you keep a secret!!

I can't keep a secret like that if I know it's going to make someone so happy I always give in because I love to see people happy.
