Hello, hello lovies. Good day to all of you, okay, it’s night time when I am writing this post, but yes, it will be morning when this is posted 🙂 I hope your day is going wonderful so far, hopefully my day will be awesome as well. I mentioned in my last post yesterday that I just got back from a trip to Las Vegas, and had a great time, sunshine, pooltime, great food, and amazing shopping deals, are always so fun, right? My gosh, this was a great time this time, I really needed some sunshine, and pooltime to relax, but I got so damn sunburnt that I had to take a little break from the pools, and go shopping, my second favorite thing to do in Las Vegas besides the pool! Shopping is always so different in Las Vegas, because you just never know! I decided to try the North (in downtown Las Vegas) outlet mall this time, next time when I go in June, I want to go again to the North, but also want to see what is at the South, I also didn’t have time to do any other shopping this time, so gotta make more time for that next time as well! I am all about finding good deals!! I found some amazing deals on makeup this time, yeah!!! I couldn’t believe it, I was literally SO freaking excited when I saw there was a bare minerals store in the outlet, and a cosmetics company store as well, yeah!! I walked in to both of these stores, and almost cried lol, oh joys of a makeup lover lol! So anyways check out everything I got!! I will post the prices I paid as well just so you all know, what kind of amazing shopping deals you can get at these types of outlet stores in Las Vegas, so totally worth the trip, p.s. I took the bus from Bellagio, where I stayed to get there, it was definitely the way to save money, and travel while in Las Vegas, highly recommend it! Please let me know your favorite thing from my haul, I am curious to know, my favorite thing was both of the Tom Ford items, that bronzer/highlighter duo is LIFE, I saw it, and freaked out, so so beautiful my gosh yes!! These are my first 2 Tom Ford items in my collection, fyi, they are full of luxury, and elegance that’s for sure, simply stunning, and so is the price tag, lol, even at outlet prices!! I splurged, it’s always good to treat yourself every once in a while, why is makeup so beautiful, and pretty? LOL! Enjoy my haul! You can live through me, and my bad shopping habits! 🙂 Oh, and I do want to mention that Bare Minerals offers a free birthday gift (the full size eyeshadow) for your birthday, mine was April 14th, and I am a member because I am a Bare Minerals junkie, lol, so I got that for free! Also, the store was having an additional percent off because it was the weekend, so I really got great deals, I don’t know if they do this on non weekend’s though, so you may just get lucky like I did! The cosmetics company store was doing an additional 1/2 off everything in the store except Tom Ford, but that’s okay, they were still great prices! 

Tom Ford Bronzer/Highlighter Duo: $54

Tom Ford Eyeshadow Duo: $42

Burberry Eyeshadow: $16.24

Shopping Haul Amazing Deals at TJMaxx!

Hello, hello lovies, this blog post is for all my deal loving beauties! Oh my goodness I sure have snagged some amazing deals lately at TJMaxx, as some of you may have seen in my previous posts, the holiday months are the best times to buy beauty & makeup at discount stores, they get full stock of everything high end, it’s weird, it’s like they hold out all year, then go crazy, because they know people will buy higher priced beauty items for gifts. Well, let me tell you, this is when I spend like a mad woman, no joke, getting so many amazing deals, and stack up my beauty/makeup collection. This year was by far the best shopping deals, even in compared to last year! So as you can only imagine, after holidays, are just as awesome, because they put everything that didn’t sell on clearance! Yep, clearance, and they continue to mark down to get them sold, so now it’s February, so the clearance selection in stores are slowly selling, and dwindling, sad, I know. I keep looking, and searching for those deals on high end products, and feel like I have gotten some really great ones!! Definitely keep checking, because apparently, during the holidays they get trucks in for stock 7 days week, after the holidays they go back to normal schedule which is getting trucks in for stock 5 days a week. I never know when to go, or check, it’s all completely random, so who knows!! I am thankful for the awesome, amazing finds that I have found though, check them out below, please realize that this is just a haul blog post to show you what I have bought in the last month (yes I purchased them all at TJMaxx). I am constantly on the look out for great deals, p.s. I have a goodwill haul coming this week, so be sure to check back to check out what I have gotten, you will be amazed!! Love bargain hunting, and shopping, it’s all about the hunt, especially at these discount stores, like TJMaxx, Marshall’s, Ross, Home Goods, etc! I am wondering, have you gotten any great products from these stores lately? Or even better, any clearance? I wish you all the best of luck!! Here is what I was able to find, and purchased all at TJMaxx, I am super excited about  everything, and can’t wait to try everything out!! Happy Shopping everyone, go get those great deals!! Yes I had to take pictures of everything at 2 different times, the second one is with natural lighting, so if they aren’t the best pictures, I apologize, but it was the best I could do 🙂 Also, the top haul is REGULAR priced, the bottom haul are all CLEARANCE priced! Enjoy! Thanks for reading!!

Huge Goodwill/Thrift Shopping Haul January

img_8004

Hello lovies!! I hope you are all doing well, and enjoying 2017 so far. I apologize for being kind of mia lately. I went on a week long vacation to Las Vegas, and came back to crazy busy life as usual, and am just now starting to get back into the groove again! We also had a crazy snow storm here, which was so unexpected, as we never get much snow in Oregon, it didn’t melt for a week, it was pretty unbelievable! Well during that time, goodwill was getting stocked up of all the goodies, just waiting for me to find, lol! Let me introduce you to a new series I am going to be doing on my blog monthly. I will be doing a goodwill shopping haul, and share with you all the good goodwill deals I was able to find for the month. I have made a few haul videos on my youtube channel in the past, and they were pretty popular, so I thought it would be really fun to share with all of you every month! I have also in the past done some of these same types of blog posts, just search goodwill, and you should be able to find them! I can also link them if you want to check them out! I think goodwill shopping is so fun, I enjoy the thrill of finding good bargains, and amazing deals, I also have actually since I was a little girl, I used to love going to garage sales, and flea markets in the south growing up, and I have always loved searching for sales, and clearances, oh what fun!! Now, let me tell you, I have been shopping at goodwill for years, and over the years I have found some really amazing things, sometimes to good to be true things, but really it is true, and I am always shocked, and very thankful to have found these treasures! The whole thrill, and fun for me is never knowing what I will find! I also want to mention that, sometimes I purchase brand new items, vintage items, and gently used items. I mostly shop for the brand new items. In Oregon, we have the top goodwill stores in the nation, and it’s a million dollar industry here. I have about 10 stores in my area that I shop regularly, so I just wanted to put it out there that I don’t find everything at the same store, or at the same time. I am simply sharing with you what I find throughout the month. I also want to let you all know the big ticket items that I search for every month are brand new items that Target donates. Most everything this month is from Target donations, brand new items that has somehow been acquired by goodwill from Target. Are you excited, and intrigued? Want to know more, and what I paid for all these goodwill finds? Well let’s jump right into it!

HUGE goodwill/ thrift store shopping beauty haul target & vintage items!

Well, hello there lovies, I hope your week is going great. So, your hear because I am guessing you want to check out what I got at goodwill huh? Your at the right place, I got some amazing deals, I couldn’t believe how great, I was shocked, and so happy when I found these deals. Goodwill, and thrift store shopping I have always really enjoyed doing, there is something about the hunt, the thrill, of what you may find! I like to call it an easter egg hunt, sometimes, you just happen to get it right, and find really cool stuff, and sometimes you get nothing. I am lucky to live where I live because I have about 10 different goodwill stores, some being superstores, all within my city, awesome, I know how lucky I am. Apparently, my state (city) has the best, and most profitable goodwill’s in the country, I know this because people come to our main store to train, and I have read places, many times how profitable our goodwill’s are. I think it’s because I live in a beautiful, nature loving, eco-friendly state. I constantly am donating, and purchasing from all the goodwill’s by me, so it’s a win, win for everyone. I shop so much (okay, let’s not get crazy) but I stop in so often, that I know the employees ha, ha, hey they help me out, and give me little insights on when the good stuff comes in, they call it the 509, aka that means target stuff. So yes, most of what I buy are those 509 items, that target has sold to goodwill, I learned that goodwill get’s palettes full of random stuff like returns, clearance items, discontinued items, etc. and goodwill will then buy those palettes (not knowing what’s in them) for a very low price, so they can make a profit by selling to the customers (like myself) it’s pretty secretive still, which is weird, they aren’t supposed to say it’s from target, or that pink tags are target, or when they come in (I still don’t know, I only know when one stores 509’s comes in) I know it’s secretive I tell ya! But it’s all the fun in stopping in, and looking for stuff, most of the time I go straight back to where the cosmetics, and beauty section is, because that’s where all the good stuff always is, and duh I am a beauty blogger, and makeup junkie so of coarse I go straight to that section 🙂 

I got some amazing stuff over the past 2 months, and wanted to share with all of you, I know this is a different type of post, but a lot of the items are beauty related, so I thought you all would want to check it out too, maybe you also share a love of good deals, and bargain shopping, or finding really cool vintage items like myself. Everything is deeply discounted, and a lot of stuff in my home I have gotten a deal on at goodwill, brand new items, I love me some goodwill shopping, and am definitely not afraid to admit it! I used to post my great finds a lot on my personal Facebook, and people would be shocked, and amazed that I shop there, and find such amazing deals, I tell them, you should shop there too, why not!? 

The coolest things I have ever gotten from goodwill, OMG to many to list, but I will try!

Patio chair (smith & hawken brand, brand new in the box)

Rug (large area rug that I have had for 10 years) 

Pictures (SO many awesome pictures that are hanging on my walls)

Le creuset items

Pampered chef items

Okay, so as you can see from the pictures, I got some great stuff, can you believe the It cosmetics blenders were 99 cents each, of coarse I bought all 4! I also couldn’t believe that I got that set of buxom lip glosses for $4.99, I’m telling ya, I just get lucky! I have a hard time paying retail for anything now days, it’s funny, because I know I can find it at goodwill, I may wait a long time, one time I found something after a year of looking……… but it’s always worth the wait to save money, who doesn’t want to do that! 🙂 I hope you enjoy this post, and please watch the video for more details on each item in the haul! Happy bargain hunting to you all!
