It’s Sunday, October 1st and we’re much more relaxed than we were yesterday.
I booked us in originally for the Blair Victoria Hotel via amoma.com …. Which I was directed to from Hotels.com. Two nights for £116.47. We arrived after travelling all morning, couldn’t check in till 2pm so we put down our bags and then went to find food; we checked in at 2.30pm ish and crashed on the bed.
Woke an hour ish later and had a good look around…. And were pretty horrified.
This is the bottom of the door to the en suite. I actually slipped while trying to shower because there was no non-slip flooring and then the water pressure messed up meaning hot/cold and back again. So we gave up on that…
Also i dont want water from this to touch me…. Ever.
The above is the extractor fan in the bathroom.
So we complained and we were moved from floor 3, room 26 (6 sets of stairs btw!) To room 40 in the basement. It was bigger with a better bathroom. Upon closer inspection however….
Black Mould incoming. The beds were damp and we couldn’t have the window open or all we could smell was an overflow pipe.
We spent a good four hours trying to find another room, thankfully MIL is amazing and got us into a new hotel at very short notice.
The stupid thing is that the owners of the previous hotel KNOW about the problems they have because they’re “planning a refit next year”.
I’m now gonna have to fight to get a refund from the place i booked it through (who are saying i have to go through my travel agent…..).
Maybe Judge Rinder could help? 😂
OH ALMOST FORGOT!! The Blair Victoria is 2 stars…. The Collier’s Hotel, that we are now in (who are AMAZING) are a 1 star hotel and are SO MUCH BETTER. I swear this is what it feels like to be in The Ritz.
Something that most people with piercings have experienced is hypertrophic scarring….. And anyone who has had it will know just how much of a bitch it is to get rid of.
I was RT on twitter a while back when i posted a picture of my healing high snug – snug piercings are a bitch themselves, to heal. The first one i had took me about two years to heal fully and the problems i had during that time… Just. Damn.
We all love to get a bargain and I know I’m not the only one who uses the app for android “Wish”.
I’ve got some amazing deals on there and for the most part they check out and if they don’t then the stuff was cheap enough not to be bothered about.
I love buying beauty products online too; brushes, eye shadow pallets, lipsticks, lip stains….everything and like I said for the most part it all checks out.
Well after five and a half weeks of waiting, my highly anticipated MAC eyeliner arrived, in black of course.
Now, there’s always a risk…. You buy something online from an app like wish or eBay and it could be anything… This is one of those times. I sent off some pictures and a description to my girlfriend.. “it’s fake or old” next thing, it’s a twist liner not an actual pencil – “it’s fake”.
So now I’m left with a pencil I darent use because I don’t know what’s in it…. It’s easy enough to find a list of stuff that’s in MAC eyeliner…. I don’t know wtf this one actually is.
When I can (there’s a time scale on Wish) I will be sending a strongly worded complaint (while sipping on a cup of tea….. I’m British God Damn It!) Because it was sold as an authentic MAC product with great reviews on the store (182 positive. 24 negative and 19 neutral – at my last look) which is why I got it from that store.
No more buying “authentic” high end products off wish….. I’ll stick to buying them in store.
