Surf Baby FOTD & An Issue to be Discussed


Thank you so much to all of you who participated in my last blog sale. It was very successful. All the packages are on their way to lovely homes. :) It should take 3-7 business days for all domestic orders, a few weeks fro international ones.

As many of you know, I've had blog sales for quite a while now. This is not only for stash purging purposes (it's a big part though), it's also a way for people to get their hands on some things they want at great prices. I have built up a great clientele base that come back and shop time after time. I think many of you can vouch for me that I am a legitimate blog seller and I have never EVER received payment and not deliver.

Usually when I do blog sales I ship the items to the address listed on the paypal account, unless the person messages me either via Paypal (noted at the bottom of the payment), Blogger, or email right after the payment is sent. You all know how fast I sent out packages since I live literally 3 steps away from a post office, LOL! Generally, if you made the payment then your package will be on its way to you in less than 12 hours.

When you sent me an email and I don't respond within a day, it's safe to assume that it ended up in my junk mail file. I check my email inbox daily, but almost never the junk mail. I'm sure many of you had experienced the how sometimes the legitimate mails end up in the junk mail box. If you needed to contact me urgently, go ahead and leave me a comment on my blog along with the email address. I moderate comments so I read every single one of them. It's a better way to contact me.

Blog sales are a lot of work. Ask any blogger who's held a blog sale. The process of taking pics is tedious; the feeling of selling beloved items are mixed; and once in a long while, you get that one customer who makes you wonder if blog sales are worth it.

Despite all of that, I still think blog sales are fun. It's great to hear back from so many of you when you get your packages and love everything. I have tried my best to deliver a pleasant experience. I will continue to improve and have more in the future, but I need you on board with me. Together, we can create a win-win situation without feeling frustrated. :)

All of that aside, let's take a look at my Surf Baby FOTD.

Again, we have to do a look from the face charts. Mine is Hibiscus.

--MAC Short Shorts on brow bone
--Kryolan e/s in Gold on lid blended into crease

LOL. "All the way to China long." ITA! But that's how most lip products go with me.

Also, you have the most perfect and flawless skin ever. I am completely jealous lol. I kind of regret skipping out on Short Shorts now. very pretty on you!
