For the holidays, I got a gift card from my Mom, and promptly spent most of it on e-books but I got one of my favorite lip glosses through Amazon marketplace, a Korres cherry lip gloss in Natural Purple.
The travails I have had with this lip gloss, ay me.
First, I received a Layla magnetics nail polish instead – complete with someone else’s name, address, and shipping info tucked inside the package. The Layla polish was worth nearly twice what I’d bought, but hey. I want my lip gloss, and surely Hector wanted his nail polish. I contacted the seller, who responded with an “I don’t know what you’re talking about, but just send it back if there’s a problem.”
So I bundled it up with the envelope and the other guy’s shipping info and a note, and got credit for the shipping that I promptly spent on another e-book.
Today I finally got my Korres Natural Purple cherry lip gloss, hurrah! However, it came with a tube of Korres Guava body butter that’s worth almost what I paid for the lip gloss. I am…at this point simply not sure if this was a free gift, or another mistake. It’s probably cheaper for her to let me keep it instead of having me ship it back and paying me shipping costs again, but I contacted her to ask, and we’ll see what happens!
Until I hear back, I’m leaving it sealed.
Excitement today! My next shiny revealed:
The listing for Appetite: A Cut Above the Rest is live, with a cover that put stars in my eyes!
A Cut Above the Rest will release on March 13th, and I can’t wait!
Today I got some good editing done, some good writing done, and I can hardly believe it’s nearly nine because I’d intended to do more writing when I got home. These guys are so, so close to progressing, I feel for them.
Last, a question for the readers – opinions of nail polish posts on the author blog? As a nail polish fiend, I enjoy posting pics of the lacquer I’m wearing and I change my manicures twice a week, but wanted to get a feel for my audience. Let me know what you think!
I love the cover! It’s very classic and simple, but very effective 🙂
I love it, too! I can’t wait to see what the artist comes up with for the third book, and I’m looking forward to the re-designed cover for The Competitive Edge, too. 😀
