Walmart has done it again.

I'm just about fed up with shopping at Wal-mart anymore. They have horrible customer service. Maybe not all Wal-mart stores but definetly the one on Commercial Drive in New Hartford, NY. 
So let's talk about what happened this time. I went Christmas shopping for my kids. When I got home I checked my receipt because the bill seemed a little higher then I figured it to be. Well one of my kids DVDs that was in the $5 bin rang up to $7.50. I also bought How to Train Your Dragon 2. It was $14.96. The signs even said it was. Anyways we'll get back to that. I also bought my daughter a black sequined best with a zebra print shirt underneath. I noticed the rang it out twice. So I return to the store (2 days later because I wasn't that worried about it and I figured they still would take care of it). Well I asked the cashier about it and she said yea, just head over to customer service. So I did. It took the lady over half an hour to figure it all out. So the DVD that rang up $7.50 was actually $7.50 but put in the bin (most likely by a customer), so ok that wasn't a big deal. Well the HTTYD2 let's just say that was another story. The lady told me that the one I grabbed was in fact $19.96, but here's the catch, they had two sections of DVDs, both the EXACT SAME DVD but priced different! Nothing was different but the sku numbers. How is that right? I heard that that is not legal to do?? So that right there pissed me off. She said she couldn't reimburse me the little bit of money that was the difference but I could bring the one back that I bought and exchange it for the $14.96 DVD as long as it wasn't opened. So whatever I was like I'll just take the loss. But here is the icing on the cake. The lady told me she called security to have them check the video tapes and they are saying I in fact bought a second vest but in green and the cashier just rang the black on up twice! I was like Wtf and beyond livid at that point. She wouldn't let me see the tapes but insisted I bought a second. I tried telling her I would NEVER buy my daughter a green one because she wouldn't wear it. They were ugly! After all the arguing I did with her I walked out pissed. I told my fiancé he can go back and request a manager because this wasn't the first time they treated us like sh*t!! 
So I am pretty much done shopping there. They are so not customer oriented and I just can't take it no more!!!

The Walmart Nightmare Finally Comes to an End

Well if anyone has been following my posts about my worst Walmart trip ever, it has finally come to an end. After going back and forth with Walmart and their claims department, a very kind woman named Joan was able to help me out. She apologized numerous times for the way customer service at Walmart acted and treated us. She also had me go get an estimate for the rug in my van and she printed me out a check for $ 1,360! That's how much it's going to replace the rug plus tax and labor. So this nightmare finally came to an end Friday with the best conclusion possible. I'm very grateful there's still decent people in the world and she took responsibility for her companies wrong doings.

A little bit more about my Walmart experience

Well we have been going back and fourth with Walmart, their claims department, Walmart Corporate, etc. Well corporate is pretty pissed off with Walmart itself and the way they handled the situation. I mean what customer service looks at you and says "well you left the store so there's nothing we can do about it!" Umm how were we supposed to know the bottle was open and was going to leak all over my seats and my floor of my van. I will have to take pictures to show everyone. I'm still pretty pissed about the whole situation. I hope they figure this out soon! I'll keep everyone updated because as of right now we are waiting on the claims department to call us back. Wish me luck!

Makeup of the Day #MOTD

So here is my #MOTD. I am going to try and post at least one look a day. Hopefully I can keep up with it. I am pretty bad at posting everyday right now. But anyways here is what I have on and it's pretty simple

Lips: N.Y.C. Lip plumping Big Bold Lipgloss in Coral to the Max. Love this. It goes on nice and smooth and has a bright bold color.

Eyes: Julep Maven Gel Eye Glider in blackest black (my favorite eyeliner at the moment), and Loreal Paris Lash Out Butterfly Mascara in Black/Noir. It makes my lashes look huge! 

You can buy everything but the Julep Gel Glider at Walmart. If you're not a Julep Maven yet I have a link up on my blog that you can click and join!

Have a great day

Our Worst Walmart Experience to Date

So last night after our daughters game (she's a cheerleader, but that's a post for another time), we had to run to Walmart for a few things. We picked up laundry detergent, bleach, a frozen pizza, hot dogs, a movie, 2 energy drinks, powdered freshener for the rug, and scrubbers for the toilet. Well when we were done we checked out and went to the car. My fiancé placed all the bags on our back seat thinking nothing of it at the time. We all got in the car and went home. We get home and my fiancé goes to get the bags out of the car and notices the back seat is soaked and the one bag is wet. Well it was the bag with the bleach. The bleach was apparently opened and leaked on everything, including my backseat of my van!! Now I'm pissed. So I tell him, well we are returning it and letting them know they need to do something about it because this is not our fault! They lady even put everythjng in one bag, except for the pizza and hot dogs. So everything in the bag was destroyed! So we get back in the car and head back to Walmart. We get there and my fiancé goes back in with the bag and explains everything to customer service. They replaced everything in the bag, but then told him since we left the store there's nothing they could do about my van and handed him a ten dollar gift card and sent him on his way. Well let's just say we went home an called corporate! This is not the end of this. I shouldn't be held accountable for something that is not my fault. My van is bleached and smells horrible. You can't use my back seat as of right now. I guess we will have to wait and see what corporate says.

Graze Box Review

I subscribe to a snack box company called Graze Box. I get my boxes every two weeks. I believe you can get them monthly, weekly, or bi-weekly. Bi-weekly is my favorite. It's $6/box and my First and Fifth boxes were free. I've been a subscriber for a few months now. I just wanted to share with you what I received in my box this past week. 
First snack was banana caramel dippers. I actually love these. They are like a banana flavored cookie and you dip them in the caramel sauce. This is such a great pair. The two tastes are great together! I would've never thought of something like this on my own but I do love. This is actually the second time I received this in a box. So yummy!!
My second snack was cracking black pepper cashews. And yes I loved these too!! I really love cashews. They black pepper taste was a great touch of flavor. It wasn't too much. I need to order a bunch of these if I can. I'll have to look into that.
The third snack was called key lime pie. I didn't care for this at all. I don't really like lime. Now if it was lemon I probably would've loved it but lime not so much. I tried it but just couldn't bring myself to eat the whole thing. I tried giving it to my 3 year old and he wasn't having it either. Lol
My fourth and final snack was herby bread basket. It was a bunch of little crouton like snacks. They were yummy. Something I would eat again. I could eat them plain or add them to a salad. They had a subtle herbal taste to them.
I think this box is worth the 6$ an perfect for snackers. I like to take snacks from these boxes and keep some in my purse or car. They come in handy. You can also go on their website when you order boxes and help influence your box and what you want to try and taste. 

So give it a try!!
