Sephora & Sally's


The BB creams that I originally got samples of were making my face too oily, so I got a few more samples from Sephora. This time of oil-free ones.
BB creams: Stila and Boscia. Foundations: Sephora and Kat Von D
Oh, I also got a sample of Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil.
I recently found out that MAC has a BB cream as well. When I have some time, I'll go to Macy's and ask for a sample of that. I have a gift card for there, so if I like MAC's BB cream, that'd be awesome! Because having a gift card is like getting free stuff, and who doesn't love free stuff!? 


I also went to Sally's Beauty Supply today. I am going to dye my hair. Maybe I should say "bleach" the heck out of it. Why am I dying my hair? Well, I needed a change and I didn't want to cut my hair again. I've been trying to grow it out for such a long time and it's the longest it's been since I first cut it in high school.
I was recommended to buy this stuff because it will lighten my hair 7-8 shades lighter than bleaching it. I did buy the Aqua colored dye too. I'm thinking of putting a few streaks underneath, or maybe doing a whole row in between, just so it peeks out. I dunno yet, if I don't use it, I can always return it, or save it for later... Oh, I also got a couple of those Sally Girl Baked Eyeshadows for 99¢. I really like them, because you can use them wet or dry. The green one is kind of a limey yellow-green and the red one is a burnt mauvey deep red.

I will post pictures of the end result in another blog.

Quick Recap of My Week

(This one is going to be quick until I can post a more detailed one with pictures...)

My son has an ear infection. I thought he had the flu. Better that it's not the flu, but still, poor little guy is miserable.

I got a bunch of free samples from Sephora.
I will post pictures later and then I'll post about how I liked the stuff once I've played with them... a few of the samples I got were a few different BB creams:
      Dr. Jart+
      Dr. Brandt

I've used the Smashbox one and the Dr. Jart+ one once already and I'm unsure if I like it.
I'll have to play with them more to see which one I like the best, or at all.

I did buy a couple of things:
      Josie Maran 100% Argan Oil in the 15 ml/0.5 oz size
      Sephora Collection Daily Brush Cleaner

So far I really love the Bear Naked Wipes a lot. I had originally bought just the travel size to try. I loved it, so I went back the very next day to buy the full package. I keep one in my room next to my bed for when I'm too lazy and too tired to go wash my face. I also really love the 100% Argan oil. I think the size I bought is pretty sufficient, since I only use a few drops at a time.
(I will write a more detailed post on what I got and my thoughts on all the goodies I got later, I promise.)

This is the bag I got with a bunch of free stuff inside. The bag by itself was worth $30. I got it for free.

These are a few of the samples I got inside the bag. There was some men's cologne too, but I gave those away already.

Haul from Jo-Anne fabrics

Jo-Anne Fabrics has a Simplicity pattern sale going on right now. Five for $5! There is a limit of 10 per customer per purchase. I bought 7 yesterday and 10 today. It's such a great price!! I also got some yarn for half off with their coupon.

These are from yesterday. I spent about $23.00 (^v^)

These are from today. I only spent $15.00 (☆^ー^☆)

Now all I have to do is clean an area so I can get my sewing machine out and build two dress forms. One for myself and one for my daughter... I'm so excited and motivated. I hope I stay this motivated.

Inconsistencies + Distractions

So... I didn't do very well so far with this whole blogging thing. I didn't even post one blog after that first one saying I was going to try and blog once a week...
Well, this year I really am going to try to blog at least twice a month. I think that's a more realistic goal for someone like me. :-P
Even tho I didn't blog, I did knit up a few things for a few friends. I knit two hats and a scarf.
Scarves take a.really long time and the pattern tends to bore me after awhile... (~_~;)so I try not to make too many scarves.. LOL. (*≧▽≦)ノシ))
I will post a few of the pictures of the knit projects I did.
