Happy Friday! I am likely on my way to San Antonio to celebrate my best friend Shannon’s birthday for the weekend!
I usually tell you guys all about products, shows, or random things I have been loving lately. This Fun Friday is going to be a little different. I wanted to share a few things that I have tried recently and hated! Maybe my fails can help you out!
I LOVE dry shampoo. I also love Batiste. I accidentally picked up the wrong one, this one has “a hint of color”. I have dark brown hair so I thought it would be perfect. WRONG! The first day I used it I had just finished a full face of makeup. I sprayed the dry shampoo and roughed my hair up with my fingertips per usual. When I looked back in the mirror I had brown all over my face and my hands were a mess. I hate this product.
If you follow the blog regularly you know that I love makeup and have 2 beauty subscription boxes (Birchbox & Ipsy). I received a glitter nail polish similar to the one shown above. I thought I would give it a try….bad decision. The glitter applies chunky and the more you try to distribute it evenly, the more it takes off. Someone also told me I looked like a 7th grader when wearing it. And taking it off…even harder. I would recommend what my friend Bonnie calls a “Party Nail” if you want to do a little glitter. That means painting your nails a solid color and having an accent nail with a different color or glitter.
I hate the Knot Shop. Don’t get me wrong, I have used the Knot website to help plan and organize the upcoming wedding. The Knot Shop is a different story. I ordered my bridesmaid gifts really early, back in November. I have still not received one of the packages with more than 15 emails, some of which were ignored, 2 with identical responses and only one helpful response. The helpful response was about a month ago promising it would be shipped…3 weeks ago. I won’t order anything else from the website for a few reasons. I understand I ordered during Black Friday and Christmas seasons, however the email confirmation promised delivery in 5-6 days. Also, the customer service has been absolutely unacceptable. Good thing the wedding isn’t until April, I’m still holding out hope to receive the products I had personalized and paid for. I encourage you to order VERY early if you decide to use this website for personalized wedding gifts.
I hope no one took this post as being negative. I think we need to be honest to keep others from wasting time and money!
