  • Question: Howww did you lift the naked palette 3?😵 - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    I give a detailed outline of my strategies on the Strategies and Tips page of my blog, but basically it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Grab something that’s somewhat flat and larger than the size of the palette that you can kind of hold tucked between your body and the crook of your arm in a way that looks natural (a makeup bag or something in a large blister pack works well. Also make sure it’s not something too expensive or out of the ordinary so that you’re not drawing an employee’s attention by carrying it and nobody will think it’s weird when you put it back.) Then walk over to the palettes, casually look over them until you’re sure nobody’s looking, and then pretend you’ve decided to buy one and tuck it under the other item you’re carrying so that it can’t be seen. Then carry it to a blind spot and conceal. That’s my main lifting method and it works well, especially at Ulta. Good luck!

I know I’ve been absent lately, but I thought I would let you guys know that I’m now working full time, and since I feel uncomfortable lifting on weekends when stores are crowded, that leaves me very little opportunity to lift. I’ll try to get on tumblr and be a part of the community more, but I’m probably not going to have many hauls for the next few months.

  • Question: what should i do the first time i lift? tips on what to take and how to act? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Wow well it completely depends on like a lot of things. What store were you thinking of going to? What kinds of things do you like? Do you live in a heavily populated area, rural area, etc? Do you live in a low-crime area? You can find a lot of my tips, opinions, etc on the tips and strategies page on my blog (I actually just started working on it and I hope to have it finished soon. I still have to add a few more sections on strategies and store-specific advice)

hey! as you probably know, this friday is Friday the 13th! If you have any black cats, PLEASE make sure to keep them inside on friday, because people could harm your kitty since they are known as “bad luck” this type of thing also happens around halloween. make sure to keep your feline friends safe, have a nice day!

Please do this! Your majestic little babies should not have to die at the hands of dumbasses. I heard of this happening around here last year and it broke my heart.

  • Question: does old navy use tags? - kitty-burglar
  • Answer:

    On jeans and most shorts, yes. However I haven’t seen them on anything else. I don’t have any detagging tools, so until further notice you can assume anything I post in a haul did not have tags. As far as other info I know about Old Navy goes, whether or not you have to get the dressing room unlocked depends on the store and whether or not they actually count the number of items you have depends on how much the employee cares. However, at least at all the stores I’ve been to, they may count but they don’t have number tags that they give you. Also, little to no visible cameras, which makes me paranoid that there are hidden cameras, but I don’t think they care that much. One of the stores in my area, in an extremely low crime part of town, literally has one huge camera dome in the middle of the store and nothing else, and because of the way that the store is set up, it has a lot of blind spots. I still prefer not to conceal on the floor unless I have to. Let me know if you have any other questions!

This is not me. This is a story from someone I know from middle school and her post is not receiving the most positive response on Facebook. It deserves to be shared and this treatment acknowledged for what it really is.

So let’s be serious for a second guys please -

Last night around 2 a.m. my friends and I decided to take a drive around Hutchinson island, and when upon returning into Sewall’s Point we made a stop underneath the causeway. We decided to stop, listen to music, and stand outside the car. Not intoxicated, not under any substance abuse, and not in the possession of any weapons - we were having clean wholesome dumb teenage fun. Without doing anything incriminating it still was unfortunately interrupted by Officer Scott Donlon, when he drove around the causeway and approached us with his lights on. We turned down the music and waited for him to approach us outside my friends car. The lights almost made it impossible for us to see his face or communicate with him without holding my arm in front of my face.

He walks up to us and says,

"I sure as hell can’t wait to hear this story."

I took the liberty to talk for my friends, because they were visibly intimidated and frightened by this officer.

I responded,

"Honestly officer, we were on our way to the beach when we decided that it was probably too late and unsafe. We decided on our drive back to stop here and enjoy ourselves. We are good people. None of us are under the influence or intoxicated we are more than willing to take a breathalyzer if you have any suspicion that we are."

That’s when he made the most disturbing comment of all,

"Yeah because running around in your underwear -"

I couldn’t believe it, he decided that my outfit of choice constituted as underwear to him. My floral top that showed my mid-drift and my high-waisted shorts was something he was going to demean and call “underwear”?

I tried my hardest not to be rude to him, but I responded with,

"That’s extremely rude and offensive sir. I don’t think my outfit should be considered underwear."

He continued to walk around my friends car trying to be intimidating and aggressive, so I spoke again:

"Sir, are you detaining us?"

Which he responded, “Yes.”

So I said, “What for?”

"For wearing underwear."

I was fuming. I was disgusted. I was baffled. I couldn’t believe that right before my very eyes rape culture was brought to light by this officer.

Again everyone - Scott Donlon, Officer of Sewall’s Point, who’s name I asked for because I was not going to let this white old privileged male think he could demean the four of us.

Luckily another officer, rolled up to us in the middle of this, he who was much kinder and diffused the situation by saying,

"Do not try him, you need to just give him respect. You could make things so much worse for yourself."

I wanted to say,

"What!? Excuse me? It’s your job to protect us, not to make us feel like our lives are threatened because he decided that he wants to be intimidating?"

Instead I said to the other officer,

"Officer, I mean no offense, and I’m sorry if I upset him, but he told us we were being detained for wearing underwear. Look at the four of us, we may be showing our stomachs, but we’re fully clothed and that’s by no means okay."

He responded,

"Well if he says you’re being detained. You’re being detained."

We were never detained.

It was all an intimidation tactic, and because of course it wasn’t worth the fight, I apologized for MY behavior and for disrespecting HIM. I let him continue to say I was running around in my “underwear.” I continued to let him say, “If I was in a bad mood tonight, I could have got you in so much more trouble.” I continued to let him discriminate my age by saying “I don’t need some 19 year old giving me attitude thinking she knows the law better than me.” I continued to let him completely dominate the situation and degrade us.

I’m not okay with this, I’m not okay with another officer fluffing his ego because he has some fucked up authoritative mentality.

Below I’ll add the photo of the outfit I was wearing, you guys let me know if I missed out on the memo of what defines underwear now.

If you actually took the time to go through my terrible grammar and read all of this ridiculous nonsense - thank you so much thank you thankyoouuu.

Blue bikini top- $20

Blue bikini bottoms- $20

Pink bikini top- $17

Total- $127.50

I’ve gotten good at evading the “How many items?” question at dressing rooms. This is the conversation that happened between me and the dressing room attendant:

"How many do you have?"

"Um… Like a million haha" (I had a huge stack of clothes hiding the things I was going to lift so I just played it innocent)

"Well you can only have ten"

"Ok, I’ll just go put some of these back" (I decided to do this and reformulate my plan)

"Are you sure you don’t want to try some of them?"

At that moment, someone got done with a dressing room and came out of it. I gave a little, “Oh, I’ll just go in here then” and a smile and it fucking worked. Godammit I’m good.
