Why are People So Damn Unhelpful!!! #3

So this post is a little out of the ordinary for me, you could almost say it is a rant! So, I’ll start from the beginning.

Myself, my sister Emily (Emmimori) and my fiance were out for a day out in Ramsgate today, and we were having a walk around town. My fiance loves looking in furniture shops so e went and had a look in the Pilgrims Hospice charity shop as they had a big furniture section at the back. I walked in there with my phone and glasses in hand and had a look around. I found these gorgeous glasses and decided to buy them so I walked over to the checkout with them and was served by an old woman who seemed quite nice.

We left the shop as they were closing soon and walked on for about 10 minutes. I went to put my sunglasses back on and it was then that I realised I didn’t have them. Were had I put them?? The case was big enough, how could I lose it!? I double checked my handbag and nothing! If it were any other pair of sunglasses I wouldn’t have minded but they were my prescription pair and cost me £90 so losing them was the last thing I wanted! I traced my steps back and realised I could have left them in the Pilgrims Hospice Charity shop so we ran back as they had already closed in hopes someone was still there.

My fiance got there first and was knocking on the glass, the woman behind the checkout was clearly ignoring him so I banged slightly harder on the window to grab her attention and signed for her to come over. She unlocked the door and I explained my missing glasses situation. All she said to me was “you didn’t leave any glasses on the desk”… That wasn’t what I had asked, I asked if they were anywhere in the store! All I was hoping for was either for her to have a quick look for me or to let me have a look and that definitely seemed like too much to ask.

She closed and locked the door and we began to walk away. It was then that I realised I couldn’t find my phone in my pocket. Slightly freaking out, I tore my bag open and it wasn’t in there either!! I had absolutely no idea what to do! I had old photos with no backups, I was logged into accounts with my card details on them and I had no idea where it was! My glasses situation was soon forgotten about.

Emily was calling my phone as we were making our way back to the amusements as that was the only other place I had been to and I was close to tears at this point. After a few calls, a man had finally picked up! Emily spoke to him for a bit and he told her where he was… The Pilgrims Hospice Charity shop. He also said there was a pair of glasses with the phone.

I was fuming! we walked back the shop and the man was waiting patiently by the door for us, he said they were by the table where I picked up the glasses from. The woman hadn’t moved from her chair, she didn’t even come over to apologise for not actually helping! I was so mad. I was close to tears, stressing, I didn’t know what to do, and it all could have been avoided if she had just been a bit more helpful. Instead she didn’t care!

I guess what I’m trying to say is, if the situation ever arises, always help those in need. My situation today wasn’t exactly the worst, I don’t actually think I’d have ever found my stuff if I hadn’t found out I’d lost it till later as the shop had already closed! But if I had the help from the woman, it would have saved a lot of worry and stress.

That’s it, rant over!! I feel much better now 🙂

P.s I also got attacked by a seagull today. It flew into my head, grabbed my hair which was in a bum and tried to fly away with it.

My, Those are some colourful balls!

No, not the balls you were probably thinking of (you dirty minded person! ;P) I mean the Avon CC Pearls!

I was a little bit doubtful when I purchased this product but seeing as I had tried a colour correcting concealer palette, I was really curious about trying it in pearl/powder form (also the fact that it was on sale for £6 probably played a part in it).

DSC_0399I can’t describe how amazing this product is! I honestly cant think of a negative thing about it. I’ll start off with the product itself.

It has 5 different coloured pearls, these are green, orange, purple and yellow. They’re all colour correcting (green for redness, orange for darkness). If I’m completely honest, I don’t actually know what all the colours are for. I know the green is for neutralizing redness, orange is for dark spots and  I think the gold is to highlight (3 out of 5 isn’t so bad!) They’re quite a nice texture too, though I will say i have often found myself crushing them between my fingers because it feels so satisfying! (please tell me I’m not the only person who does this!!!!)

On to the packaging. It’s pretty straightforward. It’s all black, which I like as it gives it a simplistic, sophisticated look, and all the writing is in white. It has a screw top lid and comes with a sponge inside to stop the balls from shaking about and becoming crushed. How thoughtful Avon!!!

Avon Haul

Hey guys! Here I have for you another mini haul. I brought a few bits from Avon recently as I love the, and their products. They do some good makeup for a decent price.

First up I decided to give their cream to powder foundation a go even though I don’t usually buy foundations I can’t try out before buying them. The one thing that really persuaded me was my sister had this foundation quite a while back and it look flawless on her face!

Next I got the Avon CC Pearls. I’ve used colour correcting concealer a before which work wonders on my face so I figured I’d give these a go and see what the outcome is.

Like foundations, if I’m unable to try a lipstick before I buy it, it’s very unlikely that I will actually buy it. I saw this lipstick was on offer so I decided to give it a go! I got it in their nude shade ‘Au Naturale’.

The last few bits I purchased were an eyeliner that came as a free gift, an angled double ended eyeliner brush and a duo sharpener.

Keep an eye out for reviews on these products :).
