Flying & Missing Luggage

I boarded a flight out of San Diego headed for Chicago.

It was my first time flying Spirit. Paid for my bag to be checked.

Got on my flight. Had a connecting flight in Baltimore. Then went on to Chicago. Flight arrived half hour early but no gate was available so was stuck on the runway for half and hour. And we arrived late…

Had to go to the bathroom. Went to baggage claim. No luggage. Went to Spirit Baggage Claim office. 3 people not including me were missing their luggage.

Spirit guessed our luggage wasn’t taken off and so was headed to New Orleans. But as it turned out my luggage was taken off and put on a flight to Orlando.

My luggage was supposed to be delivered today. I had asked for them to deliver it. Didn’t want to pay tollroads to go back to airport to get it. They said they would mail out my luggage Monday.

It was to arrive by 10am today. Never came. Contacted both airline and FedEx. Both said they didn’t have my luggage.

I calculated the cost of my medicine, $800. Then calculate a few of the items that were in my luggage including luggage and got to $500. Mentioned that to both. Magically my luggage was found. I’ll be getting it tomorrow.

Here is my advice. When flying no name airlines with your baggage. Don’t check it. Spirit has a few gates at each airport. So their turnaround time is quick so things like missing baggage happens more than at Delta or United.

I plan on flying Frontier back. Which again is a small airline. I’m paying more to carry on my bag. Than checking it. Because I don’t want my luggage mishandled again.

Now I normally only do carry on. I also fly one way. It tends to be cheaper than round trip. I only fly round trip if I add in a hotel. I also don’t pack a lot because I know I’ll buy stuff.

Think of the small things before you fly. I checked my medicine because I have a lot and didn’t want to have to deal with it in my purse.

So next time I know no more checked bags

Makeup: makeup eraser

I have 2 services one from Ipsy and the other Allure. I get their boxes/bags.

In one of them I was sent a makeup eraser. Now I won’t link the one i was sent. But there are several out there.

You wet the cloth and wash your makeup off. And the other side exfoliates. You can reuse the cloth for 3-4 years. And that is all you need to clean your makeup off your face.

I’m a fan of reduce, reuse, and recycle. I’ve been slowly changing out my daughter’s lunchbox stuff. I’ll blog about it later.

This makeup eraser is nice to have. Be sure to pick one up.

Blog Loving Begins

Every month I’ll post something about makeup, a song, and what’s happening. Can’t wait to begin the blog loving.

Universal Studios

Okay so maybe the only reason I went to Universal Studios was for Harry Potter. Fun fact:

I told my daughter we were going to Universal Studios. She asked what it was. I said “well there is Disney and then there’s Universal.” I paused for a moment to think of a better explanation. Then it came to me. “Universal has Harry Potter.”

Okay Universal Studios has more than Harry Potter.

I can say I could ride the rides. The rollercoasters there are movie like. So you visual see things and not just air or trees. Hey the spiders in one of the Harry Potter rides seemed so real people screamed (no not me).

I did get a wand. Because HELLO I need one.

I saw the actor from Stranger Things. I actually stopped because I saw the back of his head and thought no that can’t be him. But it was. I didn’t stop to talk to him because he’s a child actor. But I did tell my kids when I caught back up to them.

I did get Butter beer. I would describe it as vanilla ice cream with butterscotch.

I don’t have any more photos because I lost my phone. Univeral Studios surprised me and found it quicker than I thought they were. I think it took 3 hours.

We had fun. I’d go again. Maybe on a day not as busy as Spring Break though lol
