HUGE SHOPPING HAUL: discount makeup & clothing at Tjmaxx, Marshall’s, and Nordstrom Rack

Hey there everyone! I know it’s been a while since I’ve last posted, sorry, time get’s away from me sometimes, as always. I have a huge shopping haul that I have accumulated over the last 2 weeks that I wanted to share with you. I did film a haul video, if you want to check it out for more information on each item you see in the pictures. I was able to find some amazing deals, and finds at huge discount prices. What is better than saving money? Makeup is so expensive, it feels great to get it at such a discounted low price, that’s for sure! It doesn’t happen at once, bargain shopping always takes patience, and time. How I do it, is I just stop in at random times about once a week, I have no idea when they get new shipments of stock in, they supposedly do daily. New stuff could be put out on the shelf at any time, so they say :) It’s best to just stop in, and take a look around. Be warned that there are times when things are really cleared out, and you won’t find anything. Also be aware that these types of discount stores commonly only get one of a certain item in stock, so if you see it that day, grab it because it might be gone the next! I think it’s part of the fun to see what you can find! Also always check out the clearance section, the box or packaging might be totally torn or missing, but the product is usually fine inside. Enjoy it, and have fun with it, I look at it like a hunt, I may get lucky or I may not, but there is always good stuff to look at, or ideas to gain inspiration from. I wish you the best of luck, remember, you never know what you could find!

Sephora SALE ALERT ***Urban Decay Ammo Palette*** $16 & Sephora’s “FLASH SUBSCRIPTION” Information

ammo ammo2

Sephora sale alert! I don’t know about you but, I randomly check sephora website’s sale section, because you just never know what will pop up unexpectedly! I have scored many great deals by using this method, especially the sales that were going on after the holiday season. (I have a blog post about everything I was able to get) It’s always fun to check out what they are offering on sale. I saw this palette by urban decay, and then immediately looked at the price, $16, wait, wait, what???? Is this for real? I immediately placed my order knowing they will sell out very fast! I wanted to let everyone know that has been wanting this ammo palette about the sale, so you guys can grab it for yourself! I have been wanting this for a while, since it was released from urban decay. The colors are beautiful, and highly pigmented, and I believe they are all shimmers. The palette has been sold out in stores for a while now. The palette comes with 10 beautiful eyeshadow shades, eyeshadow brush, and an eyeshadow primer potion mini (just this has a $10 value) so for $16, it can’t be beat! I also wanted to remind everyone that sephora has a new program available for free shipping, no minimum order. It’s called flash. You purchase it for $10, and you get free “flash” 2 day shipping on all your orders for the next year. How awesome is that? It’s like amazon prime for sephora. I think it’s a great deal, and have already placed 2 orders using it. Shipping is very fast, and I think it’s definitely worth the $10 investment! Gone are the days of having to purchase a $50 minimum to qualify for free shipping! Awesome right? Anyways, I hope everyone who has been wanting this amazing palette are able to grab it, they will sell out fast, so be warned! I can’t wait to get it!

Birchbox VS. Ipsy January 2015

Hey there! I know I am late in the game on posting this, but my ipsy bag just arrived a couple of days ago, I couldn’t believe it took so long, such a bummer! I am really hoping that next month they both will come at least around the same date, so I can get them both reviewed, and compared earlier in the month. This month was a great month for both birchbox and ipsy. I really enjoyed, and loved everything that was in both subscriptions this month, yeah right!? That doesn’t seem to happen recently with especially my ipsy bag, there were a few things I was unhappy about, but over all I am excited to try everything in both. I especially loved my special themed birchbox, I am really glad that I picked that instead of the sample choices, because I know I will get use out of everything in the box. I absolutely love the hair mask by briogeo, it’s one of my favorites, and a really great size for a sample. Birchbox has continued to be my favorite of the two for months now. I highly recommend you checking out birchbox, the brands that are offered, and the quality are unlike what ipsy offers. It’s hard to compare, because they are so different from each other, but I definitely prefer birchbox over ipsy again this month. If you are interested in either of these beauty monthly subscription services, or would like a more in-depth review, and comparison, please check out my coordinating youtube video. Also if you would like to subscribe to either please use the links down below, I would greatly appreciate it!

SALE ALERT! Sephora favorites star performers (beauty must haves) $29

Hey there everyone! Sorry I have been kind of MIA this last week. I just needed a little break to get things done, and had a little much needed vacation, so thank you for understanding. Today I went to sephora (the one inside JCPenny) and was just looking around, swatching, and checking things out as usual. Every time I go into sephora, I always try and look for the sale section, because you never know what you may be able to find. This time, I really got lucky! There was one left on the shelf. I absolutely love these kits, so this was perfect for me. This kit was originally $55 and has a retail value of $126. I was able to get it for $29, such a great deal! One full size product alone is worth that in this kit, so obviously I had to get it! This kit has an anastasia brow wiz that is full size, I have heard amazing things about this, and have been wanting to try it, so I am glad it was included! The kit is called “star performers” beauty must haves. It includes 4 full size, and 5 deluxe sample size products. I couldn’t believe that this kit was discounted so low, I consider myself lucky that’s for sure. Let’s hope that the new kits at sephora currently will go on sale, I would LOVE the beauty closet, but at $99 it’s a bit much right now! I know that I will get lots of use out of all these products, a lot of them are from my favorite brands that I already use, and love every day, so I am really excited about this amazing kit!

Sephora favorites “star performers” beauty must haves kit:

Anastasia Beverly Hills>>>> Brow wiz in dark brown

Benefit Cosmetics>>>> The porefessional

Benefit Cosmetics>>>>They’re real mascara in jet black

Formula X>>>> Formula X nail color in obsessed

Josie Maran>>>> 100% Pure argan oil

Juicy Couture>>>> Viva la juicy rollerball

Make Up For Ever>>>> HD high definition micro finish powder

Nars Cosmetics>>>> Lipstick in heat wave

Too Faced Cosmetics>>>> Chocolate soleil bronzer

Popsugar Must Have January 2015 Unboxing & Review

I got my popsugar must have box pretty early this month, in comparison to previous months. I was able to film, and upload the video the same day, which was a miracle! I hope you enjoy watching the unboxing, and mini reviews. As usual this month’s box was amazing, I seriously love my popsugar must have box, it is definitely my favorite subscription box, and it continues to wow me every month. Popsugar must have is a beauty, and lifestyle box that contains such a huge variety of brands, and items. I have never had a repeat product in my box, which is a delightful addition.

January’s box wasn’t my favorite box I have ever received, but it didn’t have a makeup product, so that has a lot to do with the reason why. It did have a wow product for me although, which was the pom pom hat by jack + lucy. This is a slouchy hat, which is a fun addition to any wardrobe, perfect for any winter look. The pom pom on the time is adorable, and perfect, I can’t wait to wear it. I thought the material was going to be very itchy, but it’s 100% acrylic, which is super soft, and comfortable. It’s important for me to have a cozy winter hat, that is wearable, this hat will also be great for spring as well.

Overall I really love January’s box. I can’t wait to start using all the products, a lot of these brands I was familiar with already, so that was a different, but welcome change to the normal new to be brands, and products that are usually offered. This box was perfect for the winter months and included many much needed products that will definitely come in handy this season. Popsugar must have is $40 a month (which includes shipping) and the value is always way over the $40 price.

The Me, You & Us Journey


So apparently I’m pretty inspiring! My sister started a blog, please follow her in her amazing journey, and inspirations! She’s an amazing writer, so please go and follow her, and show support, love, and envouragement. You will be seeing some re blogging and us working together in the future I’m sure :) love my sister (s) to pieces!

Originally posted on The Me, You and Us Journey:

I recently picked up a book called “Where will you be five years from today?” by Dan Zadra from my book shelf, suddenly feeling motivated for change. The book is meant to ease you into creating a 5 year plan for yourself so that you make the next 5 years the best ones yet and not just another 5 years past. I’m a sucker for this type of thing. It’s full of powerful quotes and questions to really get you thinking. It’s meant to chip away at the ice on that ol’ box of goals you had stored away in your brain that sometimes creates a beautiful swan design depending on your preference. As I sipped my coffee this morning while looking out into this new city of roses I am determined to defeat, I kept having the reoccurring thought of a goal of mine that was buried deep,very deep…
