Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Got the box last night! I opened it, was overwhelmed, and decided I'll look at it tonight. mafan and I are trying to set a meet-up to exchange the box, as opposed to shipping it a short distance. Either way, the box will be on its way to violalea in a reasonable amount of time!

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

I can't wait to see what's in there!  Hopefully we can meet up this weekend and I'll get the box out again next Monday (or Tuesday at the latest, depending on my need for super packing skills) to violalea.  I'll pick up a new box in advance.

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

I am so excited. Cant believe after 3 months, its my turn to get the box next week. Yay!!!! Smiley Happy

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Wow, I can't believe it's been that long! Time flies and it feels like I just sent it on it's journey a little while ago. I'm so glad everyone is excitedfor their turn. I know I just had my turn with box 4 and was excited to see what was in the box. 

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

I should be getting the box after Black Friday so I'm reallllllly excited Smiley Happy

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Oh yay! SO EXCITED ! Smiley Happy

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Okay, mafan has the box! We were able to meet up today and had a great time! We had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory (yum!) and, of course, played at Sephora. We were at the Sephora she goes to a lot, and the employees recognized her Smiley Happy It's so much fun playing with makeup with someone who loves it and is clearly so knowledgeable! We exchanged the box from my car afterward, but I couldn't remember where I parked...embarrassing! But mafan was super nice about it. A true, kind BTer!

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

PTR Mega Rich Shampoo & Conditioner

Philosophy Firming Body Emulsion

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Oh i'm so liking the items you added. I can't wait till it comes to me! It's so close! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

It was so much fun to meet up in person. I definitely recommend it. The only problem is that jellybean917 cheated. She didn't have to mail the box so she didn't have to worry about getting it closed. I hope I find lots of big goodies in here because just the things I said I'd try to put in will need some space!

 

Everything seems to be well labeled and it doesn't seem to have too much drugstore stuff in the box. If you were sending anything to someone other than violalea, let me know ASAP as a quick glance didn't show any other labels (except for me. Thanks vivienne and jellybean917!)

 

I'll let you know what I put in later. If I'm lucky I'll get it out tomorrow since I have another package to mail. Definitely by Tuesday. 

 

P.s. jellybean917, as I went down in the garage elevator I was with someone who had been wandering the other level looking for her car. You are not alone. Smiley Wink

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Glad you guys had fun. Wish I could have joined you two Smiley Wink!

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Come to Boston and we'll take you out!  We definitely need a meetup in the area at some point. 

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

OMG one day trust me. I have never been to Boston and I would love to go there one day. Till then Smiley Wink.

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

I am so so excited now. I think I will probably get the box on Thursday or Friday. Yay! Happy dance! Smiley Wink

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Sounds like both of you had so much fun!

Playing around in sephora together must have been a blast.

How did you like the scent of the mini? I thought that if it is not to your preference, at least you have a cute mini bottle to add to your collection :-).

It took me about half an hour trying to fit everything in that box so I feel your pain about the packing. My vote goes to either choice #2 or what Missie suggested but since i'm done with my turn...it probably doesn't count Smiley Tongue

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

I was just thinking how awesome it would be to have a meet-up with fellow BTers. Have any of y'all set one up before or was a part of one?

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

It WOULD be awesome to meet everyone here on BT in real life

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Okay, folks, I have a dilemma here. The box is really full. Even after taking out some larger tubes and a body spray, the box is really full. I can fit in the things that I promised to people and maybe some of what others wanted. But it certainly won't equal what I took out and everyone after me will face a similar problem. 

 

The thing is, I'm number 14 and there are 11 people after me. 

 

What do you want me to do?

 

1) I can add what I can fit, knowing it is less than what I took but is what I promised, and everyone else after me can face the same problem. 

 

2) I can guess what people really wanted from this box (or ask if you think something is there) and start a new box from here with what I have and I think might be most wanted and let that go along, and send the rest back to the beginning for donation. 

 

3) we can send two boxes around. One as full as I can make it and another one that might start at medium but would get to large soon. 

 

People have been really generous so I don't know what to do. If you say number  1 I would start another box. I would probably make this a "veterans" box since others are talking about boxes for the people who haven't had a chance to be in a box so I would let people who were on the end have a chance to be earlier first. And the list would be shorter because 25 people are too many when everyone is so generous.  I would not start until the new year since mailing will be crazy soon.

 

I really think I need to send this one SOMEWHERE either with less than it had before just to add what I promised in mini perfumes, etc, or to restart it. So let me know what to do  with the rest because everyone after me will face the same issues. 

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

Just so that it's clear, I do think I can play packing Tetris and fit what I promised and a few things more, but everyone else will have to take our things that might be of more value (and I think I have taken more than I put in.). I just don't want people unhappy that I took too much as the box is very full. 

 

Having my husband watch and say "that's crazy, just start a new box" does not help. Smiley Happy

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

I think removing some of the lower end items to donate locally is a good solution if you wanted to do something like that. I also think we all want to share as much as possible and no one wants any drama over anyone taking too much, but the box is only physically so big. I wouldn't worry about exact 1:1 value/number of items, as long as it's not wildly out of whack, like taking a whole ton of full sized items and putting in a handful of samples. I trust your judgement. Smiley Happy 

Re: Sephora traveling box #2

I know I am done with this box, but I always like to see how the box progresses as it goes from person to person! 


I don't think it is fair for you and everyone else later on to pay for 2 boxes.

 

Personally I think that you should take out a bunch of the drugstore/lower end items and multiples of the items to donate to your local women's shelter or whatever and then just send the box as you would normally. I know Kalex did it and no one had a problem with it!
