A full size bottle of Essie's Barefoot in Blue finally came in from a giveaway I entered weeks ago!

That is a gorgeous color!

 

I'm tempted right now by some of the Zoya polishes and Revlon lip butters,but I'm going to be strong! This thread should help a lot!

hoping for a speedy recovery!

So I had to go to Ulta today for hair stuff, and I got in and out wiith only exactly what I went in to buy. Felt GREAT. Then I had returns to do at nordstrom, didn't even stop by the cosmetics counter or anywhere else and left with 330 dollars more than I went in with, so that also felt good. BUT now I have to go to Target for some baking stuff and that is where it could get tempting, I was so good all day I don't want to mess up now.

The only way it is going to get tempting is if you don't go straight to the baking department and leave.

 

Don't stop and browse. You have complete control over this!

I did well! Left with only baking stuff and now I'm baking which is a good distraction (and also the best way to make my manager want to promote me to the position I applied to lol).

Good job! Target would be hard for me to resist. I don't think I could and ulta? You did really good. I would at least be hitting the clearance section.

 

Feel better Pancua


 

I'm on day 2 icon_sad.gif  I tried to resist the sale @ sephora. I did really well until I found out they were giving away sample bags inside the store. I asked my hubby to stop by & get me one. And of course, I had to buy something so I could use the 15% off. I didn't even want anything there so I got a body scrub. The last thing I need is another scrub, I have 2 full size & 2 sample sizes that are brand new plus another huge one in the shower. It cost me $22 for a free sample bag. Yikes.

 

Then I spent $40 @ shea terra. I got it 30% off but I still really didn't need anything. I spent $62 on nothing really. Nothing I needed. What the hell is wrong with me?

It is amazing the places baked goods can take you lol. 

 

I went to TJ Maxx tonight, and successfully avoided the beauty section. It probably helped that they didn't have anything from theBalm or OPI. I did pick up two scarves though, and it's super exciting because I was actually about to break down an order them from Modcloth before I found them there for half the cost!

I live within walking distance of tj maxx, ross, and marshalls. I somehow never hit up those stores. BUT NOW I WANT TO. Thank goodness its almost 10 and my day tomorrow is filled with extreme couponing, lol.

I had my blinders on in Ulta and brought a heavy bag in so I only had one free hand, lol. 

 

Shea terra stuff is great, what'd you get? :P

laughing.gifGood stradegy! Hats off to you ladies. If I were normal (you know-not bedridden), I couldn't walk in ulta & sephora & not buy anything. Its pretty easy to do alot of damage online though

 

I got the argan face/eye/serum trio, the volcanic foot scrub & the dark choc and white choc straw bars.

 

Oooh, what are you baking?

Ohh, I have the two serums but not the pure argan oil from that trio. I loooove the around eye one, it works amazing, but the I think the all over one kind of smells lol.

Went into Sephora and left with a NARS lip liner and UD eye primer. I officially broke my no buy. The last time I purchased a cosmetic item was March 2. I was going so well too....

Oooh, and Souly, I can totally understand breaking your no buy for some Shea Terra! I have a sample of the black soap and I LOOOOVE it. I also really want some of the baobabs and bananas body creme.

 

What did you get in your sample bag from Sephora? I don't think I'll be able to hit up the sale, so I'm trying to live vicariously through others!!

They seem to vary slightly store to store.

 

I got:
Bumble & Bumble - shampoo & conditioner packets

Makeup Forever - mini mascara

Sephora - mini mascara

Especially Escada solid fragrance

Boscia - bb cream .35 oz

Givenchy - mister light sample packet

 

Not a bad bag but nothing I needed. They were also giving away umbrellas. You did good at TJ Maxx!

That's not bad at all! I usually always end up going to Sephora when they have these deals, spending money I shouldn't spend on things I don't need so I can get more crap I don't need. The last time I did it was when they had the little set of NARS minis. Curse that Sephora, tempting us with their awesome deals!

 

Thanks! I'm pretty pleased/surprised that I found those things there. I was actually going to place an order once I got home! I thought that would save some money, but naturally, other items somehow crept into my cart to take their place lol.

So, uh, who's starting the April No-Buy Thread? This one is played out, I guess. And, no, I didn't make it through the day (damn those China Glaze Prisma Colors!). But tomorrow can be Day One and it's the start of a new month anyway!

I'm doing the same thing! April will be the month of success.

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
