About Me

A small town girl with a love for traveling and exploring new sites and actual stores.

How I Can Help

I am as honest as they get, I don't like to leave bad reviews if I don't have to on literally anything unless it truly needs to be said. I will be upfront about everything I post and tell it like it is.

The product itself is a nice concept, I don't necessarily think it is worth the price I spent on it. However, if you had a coupon or bought it during one of their deals, I say definitely try it. It definitely made me feel like I had a lot more energy but I had to force myself to drink the tea - I didn't like it at all. I was recently on their site and noticed they now have gummies, I have not personally tried the gummies, but I noticed they are a bit overpriced for my liking.

I had several horrible experiences in the actual stores, so when my bridesmaids found their dress, I helped two of my girls out by getting them online and shipped to my mom (I live in a different state now than my hometown friends). The purchasing process online was easy. I found the dress by the item number on the tag and ordered the dresses. What was NOT clear is that once the dress arrives you only get 14 days to return it if there is an issue (sizing, color, rips, etc). I had an issue, my one bridesmaid couldn't get the dress because they said it would take 2-3 months to get in and she was in Florida for a wedding when it arrived. By the time she got back and was able to get the dress and try it on it had been 30 days. I tried to take the dress back to the store and exchange the size. Unfortunately, because I purchased it online it could ONLY be returned to them and refunded by them. I asked her if it was going to be a problem and she said no just say it was a sizing issue. After calling one of the representatives, who was very rude, I was able to resolve the problem and they sent me a size bigger. My second issue with ordering online is that the second dress we had sent to the store to pick up. Once again, no issues with the process, however, once it arrived in the store they called my bridesmaid and told her that she only had SEVEN days to pick it up or it would be placed on the sales rack and be made available for someone else to purchase. I don't know about you guys but that's pretty messed up to me. She purchased that dress, she should be able to pick it up when she can without the worry of it being sold to someone else or loss of money.

I won't ever be using them again.

For me personally, I have never had an issue with PayPal. Though, I don't get a large sum of money put into it or taken out of it. It has been easy for me to use and navigate through their website and everything is pretty self explanatory.

Medievaltimes.com

Medievaltimes

If you are looking for a fun time with the family or you, yourself, are into medieval times/jousting, knights, kings/queens, etc. This is definitely something you should look into! www.medievaltimes.com offers 10 different locations, including one in Canada, that you can choose from. The website is easy to navigate and shows you and tells you exactly what it is all about. Once you purchase online once, sign up with your email and they send you AMAZING deals right to your email. I recommend this to anyone and everyone!

I have used Shutterfly for the last 6-7 years and have yet to be disappointed. I have customized my woven blankets, pillows, mugs, etc. and the product has always been exactly what I wanted. The shipping is pretty standard and the prices are reasonable. The website is easy to understand and navigate and their products make for great Christmas presents! I also love the coupons they send me right to my email that always me to get free shipping or x amount % off items. It is wonderful!

I love, love, love this website.
Easy to navigate, easy to filter, easy to apply.
I have found a job off of this website with the last 3-4 jobs I have had.
I would definitely recommend using this site to anyone.

I lost my baby two months ago exactly, and it has been super hard on me. I didn't know it until she passed how much I relied on her for emotional support sometimes from the issues I have. That being said I want to adopt a new dog soon so I have been going to local shelters and looking on Petfinder.

Pros

It helps show you all the available dogs (and cats, etc.) near you
Easy to navigate and filter to what you are looking for
Gives backgrounds on the animals
Explains if the animals would be good around other animals/children

Cons

It is almost impossible to meet every single criteria they want
If you do make the criteria, the dog is probably already adopted, in the process, or on hold.
Some of them seem like scams - as I have seen the same dog photo on a few different listings with the same name
The range is small on a lot of them which is difficult when you live in the middle of nowhere.

I love going to Michael's, so much variety and I could spend hours there. However, their site, not so much. For me, it was hard to navigate the website and find what I need. I actually ended up needing to go to the store and take a picture of what I needed and find it by the item code online (I needed to buy things in bulk and in the store, it was always out of stock or only 1-3 available). However, I did find everything I need and the check-out process was simple and easy and the shipping was pretty quick/average. I am satisfied but I would like to see some upgrades done to their website in the future to make it easier to navigate.

I only used this a few times and when I say a few times it was only for looking. I attempted to rent a place from them, to find out later it was a huge scam - thankfully I did not give any money or information to this person and I alerted the realtor's right away. I haven't used it since because it lost my trust. I can't give it a one star though since it does seem to have useful information and it's easy to navigate. I would personally recommend Zillow.com or Relator.com, but if you do decide to use this site, be careful with your information.

I love that it shows me the zestimate (Zillow estimate) of how much I would be paying a month and that it is easy to navigate and filter to what we need. My only complaint is that I have reached out in the past to agents and never got any responses except for one time and it wasn't the greatest interaction. Other than that it is easy and useful, I just recommend using a Realtor you know or local to that area.

I have moved 4 times in the last 4 years and every time it was a smooth transition, thanks to Realtor.com! We have not purchased a home yet (we almost did, but it just was not the right time for us) so I can only review them for my experience with renting.

It was easy to find homes for rent for what we were looking for and it was great being able to put in what we were looking for (apartment, townhouse, etc) in the price range we could afford. I also loved that it was easy to filter anything we wanted to be included. For example, we had two dogs so we were able to filter "pets allowed", etc. It was very helpful.

Contacting agents was super easy, just fill out the information box and how you would like to be contacted and hit submit. The agents always got back to me in a timely manner. I would recommend this to anyone.

I disliked this site at first because I thought it was full of tools and rude guys who just want in your pants instead of a relationship/future. However, I can't say I hate this site because I met the love of my life on it. 4 years later, looking back on the experience, I can't complain. Even in life, you always have to go through people to find the best ones. The only difference is you have to do that online. I think it is worth it, but try subscribing when there are deals!

I stopped shopping with Lane Bryant and have moved onto Torrid instead. I think that the clothes are more styled for a business outing or a formal event instead of everyday wear. Don't get me wrong they have plenty of clothes on there that could be considered "everyday wear", but I feel older while wearing those. I like that torrid makes me feel younger and more stylish and is a tiny bit cheaper.

I do absolutely believe that Lane Bryant is worth the money if you are looking for a dress or a work outfit.

Nothing bad to say about the quality of the clothes, mainly because none of them could be worn anyway.

I suggest if you are going to buy from shein, size up or check the measurements, so you that you don't have to deal with the hassle of returning items and getting new ones.

To be 100% honest. I never willingly went out of my way to go on this site and purchase any of their products. I only ever used them when my friends threw parties and I felt obligated to buy something from them.

I think that their products are nice looking and smell delicious but I can get the same things for way less money, almost anywhere else. Walmart, for instance, strong smelling waxes and nice looking warmers for half the price AND the wax does last longer. I just don't think that the money is worth it to buy Scentsy.

I don't have a huge problem or any scam stories about this but all I can say is I preferred it a few years ago. Before you use to have to scan your items so they check off the "list" and know what is left to get or whatever and now you just get them and go home and take a photo of the receipt. I don't like that at all. Also, I find it harder to navigate and slow to use now and it just upset me enough to stop using it all together.

I do have to say, though, that I made money from using this site and I did receive it. I made, I believe $60+ and then another time $30 something. I got paid both times.

I would have given the full 5 stars but I do believe that they need to adjust a few areas.

Their customer service is superb. I have a slight issue (not even an issue, it was more of a concern/question) after I purchased my groceries from them the first time. I had a total amount spent, let's just say $150, which I saw come off my card but then the next few days I was seeing $10, $3, $26, etc. So I contacted them, as nobody wants to be double - triple charged for anything. The customer service representative fully explained the situation to me and then kept in touch with me through email the days following until everything evened out.

When the products came, and it was fast, all the cold items were packaged nicely and kept chilled. I also have no issues with the boxed items/cans because they were packed nicely. My one complaint and the reason why they received a four-star is that I ordered a case of water (which I figured would come in its own box) but unfortunately, it came in a huge box with a case of soda and on top of those two items a bunch of cans and other pantry items that made the box extremely heavy. It was so heavy that the delivery driver left it at the end of the driveway instead of the door this time. My then boyfriend (now fiance) was upset and told me to never order drinks from them again, which I haven't, and I haven't had any other issues with them since.

When I first got engaged, my mother gifted me the first bride box. I was so excited when I finally got the email that said: "Here comes the bride box". Upon receiving the first box, I thought it was beautifully wrapped and designed. It came with a few items and a description of everything in the box and where to purchase them. I thought that was pretty cool to help me decide on some things for the wedding but I didn't think it came close to the value of what my mom spent on the box. However, I wanted to give it another shot so I signed up for the monthly box and kept my subscription for 6 months. Every time it came I was giddy with excitement and had fun being surprised. However, I did end up canceling my subscription. Not because the products the box contained but because I felt robbed every time.

Pros

It gives you products to try and options for your wedding
It sends you discount codes to purchase those items

Cons

It sends you a lot of "testing" products that do not equal or come close to the amount of money you spend on the box
The shirts that they provide (I filled out the survey with the correct shirt sizes) were not the greatest. One was way too big and the other looked like it could fit a toddler.
Each box seemed repetitive - not a whole lot of variety - and what I mean by that is the "October" box contained a lip gloss and compact mirror and then in the "December" I received another lip gloss and mirror. It wouldn't have been that big of a deal if the lip glosses weren't so similar in color and stuff. It just made me feel like I am paying to get almost the same items.

JustFab

Previously, I described JustFab as cheap material but fashionable shoes, but sometimes the sizing can be off. I purchased two new pairs of boots (the same ones just different colors because I felt they were too cute to pass up). Anyway, I spent about $50 for two pairs, and the standard shipping. They came fast and they lived up to make expectations on how they would look. I got loads of compliments and a bunch of questions asking where I got them. However, It has been a few months since then and I haven't worn the other pair yet but with the current pair I wear, I have experienced issues. The bottom of the shoe is ripping (like my previous review stated) but also the cushion on the inside of the shoe went away quite quickly, leaving little to no support at all. I have had that (the lack of cushions) happen to some other boots in the past, not just from JustFab so it could be a common thing that happens regarding boots like these. $50 for two pairs of boots is an outstanding price to me, but not if the shoe won't last more than a few months. I have owned boots that have last me years before any real problems so to only have them for a few months is upsetting.

I think if the price is right and you don't care that they won't last then I say absolutely go for it. However, if you want good quality (not saying ALL of their shoes are bad, their sandals have lasted for me) I would say you are better off going to an actual store when you can try on, feel them, and see the material, feel the inserts, etc.

****UPDATE****

****I have decided to give this company another shot as it has been a few years since I have used them - I ordered two pairs of boots that are super cute! I ordered them yesterday and they already shipped this morning :) I will re-write my review once I have had the chance to wear them around a little bit****

I don't hate this company, I think they have a good concept, but I just wish it was better.

First impressions - excited, couldn't be more thrilled with how inexpensive everything was, who doesn't want shoes delivered directly to their door? I mean right?

However, you need to make sure that you read, read, read their fine print. You will be charged after the 5th day of each month IF you do not log in and "skip this month". I never had an issue with this, as I did read the fine print and always skipped the month.

When I first signed up it was mid-fall so I order three pairs of boots. When they arrived they were wrapped well and super cute and I couldn't have been more pleased! The best part yet, they ALL fit!.

However, 2 months into wearing them, they fell apart :( I am talking, holes on the sides, the bottom was ripping off, and towards the front of the shoe was split on the bottom. I was very unhappy, especially since I didn't get much wear out of them. This happened to two of the three pairs that I purchased. The third pair is still sitting in my closet, never worn, and I ordered them almost two years ago.

Another problem I encountered with justfab.com is that you can NOT cancel your membership online, you can only do it on the phone. For me it was excruciating. I say this because, not only was I on hold for a long time but when I finally got to speak to a representative they kept trying to talk me into keeping your membership until I finally had enough and yelled that I was canceling because their products suck. I do not like being hostile, but I also don't like being pressured. After that, the representative quickly canceled my membership and wished me a great day.

I opted to not give a one star because shipping was fast and easy. The product did arrive and I did get to wear them for at least two months.

I also gave them a second chance in the spring/fall and purchased some cute sandals. I have not worn them a whole lot but so far they have survived an entire year, but one sandal was a tad too big.
