Black Friday Deals I’m interested in! 🛍

In the past years, I never really had any items I waited for to go on sale for Black Friday. I don’t this year either, but I do have some things I have my eye on. So here’s my little list of items I hope to buy this week!

Coach outlet is having 70% off everything online and in stores. I feel like I need a new purse, or at least a new backpack I could carry my laptop in to work. I did see some backpacks on there, but nothing really caught my eye. I might go to the outlet mall and see if I could pick one out there. Besides a backpack, I really liked these two purses and I think they were each under $100. Hoping to grab at least one this year! 

Next on my list is makeup. I saw that Ulta had a lot of stuff being advertised on their website for Black Friday. I

I want to grab a mascara, specifically the IT one, I got a sample for my birthday and it honestly is one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried and that’s a steal for $10! The Mario Badescu spray trio is a great deal since I’m almost out of mine at home. I love the rose and cucumber one and have never tried the lavender one. Plus, if they’re small enough, I could take them on trips! 

These two sets would be a great gift for my little sister. I know she doesn’t own any of these items and they’re a great deal. The MAC fix + spray is amazing and the HOOLA bronzer is one of the best bronzers I own. Overall, I feel like they’re both a good deal and would make for a great present for anyone!

I’ve heard great things about the Dermalogica brand and if it could possibly help with my acne/acne scarring, that would be worth it! The Microderm device is something I have wanted for a looooong time, but it’s always so expensive. It’s still pretty pricey at $99, but if this actually gets rid of my acne scars, it would be worth the $99. Any reviews on this? And last but not least, the entire YES TO brand is 50% off. I love their masks and lip scrubs so I will stock up on some goodies and maybe make a few of them gifts! 

 

Haven’t found an ad for this, but I am hoping Charming Charlie has some kind of a deal on accessories because I need some new hoop/dangly earrings. I’ve heard in the past they usually have a good Black Friday sale, so I hope I can grab a couple pairs. I went the other day to buy some, but I thought why not just wait to see if they have a sale?

Walmart always has something I want like for example a onesie. I need a new one as the only one I have is with penguins on it, think I outgrew it!

On the ad, I only found 2 things noteworthy. This deal for the soundbar isn’t too bad especially when you get small corner speakers as well. We’ve been wanting one since we got our TV, it really does make a difference. I already have a Fujifilm mini camera, but just wanted to point out that this is such a good deal especially when you get a case, album, stickers, and film. I had to buy everything separately besides the film. Last thing I want from Walmart is the new Call of Duty game, it’s $60 right now, but it should go on sale for like $40, so I am waiting for that! Super excited!

So that’s pretty much my list. If I find anything else I will add to it! I will be mainly buying presents this year, so hopefully I find some other goodies for our parents! 

My 5 favorite purchases from Amazon!

Hi all!

I love Amazon and I feel like my husband and I order from there quite often. So I thought it would be a cool idea to show you guys my top 5 favorite purchases in no order and why I like them!

#1: Camera & Phone Tripod

  • I really like this tripod because the last one I had was the type where you could pull these circles off and make it smaller or whatever and it was just annoying dealing with it. This one is sturdy and can’t break easily. It wasn’t super expensive either. It also comes with a phone mount thing where you could put your phone and it has a camera mount if you want to put your digital camera. One more awesome perk is that it comes with a remote shutter which is super cool! 

#2: Dimmable Fluorescent Ring Light

  • This is the first time I’ve purchased a ring light and I have to say that this changes EVERYTHING! Yesterday I was checking out my makeup in the mirror and had this light on – it made my skin look flawless. I could see every detail whereas on my regular mirror, it’s hard to see if I messed up somewhere. I bought this to use when I make Youtube videos or when I take pictures, so I think this was a good investment. I got the cheaper version of the two since I didn’t really care what color the metal was, works fine either way. 

#3: Mezzaluna Chopper and Knife

  • Okay this is one of the coolest kitchen tools we own! One time, we got a salad at Subway and they used some blade thing to chop the salad in a big bowl and literally the salad was amazing. So later on, we find out that this is the tool they use! We found it on Amazon for a great price and tried it the other day when making a salad. It chopped through lettuce, cucumbers, and chicken. It was so good! The blades are really sharp so I’d be careful around this one!

#4: Bed Head Deep Waver for Beachy Waves

  • This reminded me of a crimper from like way back in 6th grade. It makes beautiful beachy waves! My hair is medium length right now and it makes it look so wavy I love it. I can’t wait until it grows even longer, I’ll feel so tropical. I watched a Youtube video of someone using this on short hair too and it looks so pretty. If you look at the reviews, you can see how it looks on different hair styles. One of the best purchases for my hair lately. 

#5: simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can

  • My husband broke our trash can over the summer – I washed it and left it outside to dry and he ended up dropping it to the point where it broke and wasn’t usable anymore. We were thinking about just replacing a piece (the black can inside), but it was pointless to do since that wasn’t really cheap either. Also, it’s tough finding one that exactly fits yours when you don’t even know what trash can it is anymore! So we searched for months and decided to get this one. Best decision ever!! This trash can is great and it closes by itself slowly so it doesn’t slam on anything. They also gave us a sample of their trash bags that are like a true fit to our specific can and I think we’re going to purchase some more because they’re amazing. It’s so easy to pull the trash bag out whereas before it was a struggle. It’s also a good size for a not so big kitchen. 

So that’s my list, have you tried any of these items?? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

What products I’ve been loving lately!

Hi all!

So I have been trying out some new stuff recently and I have actually been liking everything. From skincare to haircare products, here’s my list:

Skincare:

  • Clinique Moisture Surge Moisturizer – my skin has been going through this dry phase for some reason and I ran out of my other moisturizer (which was also from Clinique) so I decided to go even further and try the moisture surge. So far, I LOVE this for my face. It really makes it soft, glowey, and hydrates it. I deff think this is my new go to face moisturizing product!
  • Nivea Soft – I really love this for my body. I usually put it on after I get out of the shower, but you can even use it when your legs or arms are feeling dry. It has a nice scent to it and it’s not greasy at all.
  • Thayers Witch Hazel – I tried the smaller version of this since I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, but it’s so nice on my skin. I like to use it in the morning and before I go to bed and so far I am loving it better than my old witch hazel toner. 
  • Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser – So I only got this because it was $7 the other day at Ulta with their 21 days of Beauty sale. It’s been over a week since I have been using it and what this is supposed to do is not get rid of any acne you have prior to using this, but to prevent any future acne from occuring. I haven’t had any breakouts ever since I started using this so I’m not 100% sure it’s from this product, but I usually do get acne now and then so just knowing my face is looking so much better gives me faith in this product. Originally it is $15, so it’s a little pricey, but none of their products have ever disappointed. 
  • Up&Up Makeup Remover Wipes – Usually I use some makeup remover wipes from like Neutrogena and it burns my eyes when removing makeup. I finally found the perfect makeup wipes that don’t burn my eyes when using!!!! They are super gentle and soft to the skin so it causes no irritation whatsoever. I will keep purchasing these for sure!

Haircare:

  • Garnier Fructis Hair Mask – First time trying this product and so far it makes my hair smell good and it also makes it soft. They say you can use this hair mask as a conditioner, leave-in treatment or hair mask depending on what you need. It makes you hair less frizzy and more manageable. Loving it so far and will keep using it! 

  • Garnier® Fructis® Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream – I’ve used this in the past and forgot about how much I liked it. I mix this with the oil I am going to talk about next and it just makes my hair super soft. 

  • Garnier® Fructis® Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment – Used this in the past also by combining it with the leave in conditioner above. It always worked good for me, made my hair smell amazing and made it super soft as well! 

  • Garnier Fructis Pure Clean Detangler – Used this up already, got it maybe 2-3 months ago and I LOVED it! My hair always gets tangled easily after I get out of the shower and this helped so much. It also smells amazing!

So these are the products I’ve been loving lately, I might do cleaning products next time – I’ve been trying to get into the “organic” cleaning products.
