I recently bought this Sara Happ “The Lip Crayons” Limited Edition Set online because it was Sara Happ and limited edition. Without thinking to first read reviews on Beauty Bay, where I bought my items from, I made the payment and excitedly waited for the package to arrive.
When it didn’t arrive within the 10 days as it promised on its website, I started getting anxious and found out, probably a tad too late, that Beauty Bay has pretty mixed reviews on their customer service and deliveries/shipping. At that point, all I could do was pray, especially since I had opted for the cheapest shipping option that didn’t provide a tracking number.
Luckily for me, it arrived the next working day. Although I wasn’t home and had to claim the package at the post office in the end, I was just glad my package arrived. It didn’t come intact though – the box my items were packed in had been damaged and SingPost had professionally placed everything inside a sealed plastic bag with a note stating that the package had been received in Singapore in that damaged state.
That brings me to today’s Wednesday Musing post. What would you do, or what are you willing to go through, just to get what you really need? Would you, like me, just jump straight at any opportunity to get it without thinking, or would you weigh all options even though time seems to be running out (maybe because of time-based sales, or an expiring discount code)? In my haste, I had risked my mail getting lost in shipment but I think never again will I be so ready to do something as silly as this.
