ULTA's Free 13pc. Bag Deal (Contents)

ULTA has a pretty cool offer going on at the moment. If you buy $17.50 worth of ULTA products (must be cosmetics, beauty tools, or skincare) you receive a free faux snake skin wristlet filled with ULTA make-up! I took up on this offer after reading about their Dual Cleansing Clarisonic brush dupe. It was $25 and I used a $3.50 off $10 coupon.

The bag comes in three choices: Mystic - Cool, Willow - Trendy, and Molten - Warm. I imagine this is associated with skintones. My ULTA only had one of the choices, which was the Willow bag. I was hoping to get that one either way, but the other two bags look nice. The actual Molten and Mystic bags look different from the Willow bag with their zips. 

(The brush I bought, which landed me this deal. Pick it up, it's a great alternative to more expensive cleansing brushes)

ULTA claims that these bags are worth $88. I'd have to disagree, because only the masacara, lipstick, blush (I think), and eyeshadow quads are full-sized. 

(The bag that I received. Super cute and big enough to use as an actual wristlet/purse)

The bag includes:
3x mini brushes
2x eyeshadow quads
1x blush
1x mini nail polish
1x mini lip gloss
1x blush
1x dual ended eyeliner
1x lipstick
1x mascara
1x mini facial moisturizer

(Contents of the Willow bag)

(Three brushes: eyeshadow, sponge tip, and contour)

(Two eyeshadow quads: first comes in Silk, Gold Dust, Platinum, Granite. Second comes in Golden Girl, Trust Fund, Verdigris, Fortune.)

(Blush in Exposed. Can't tell if it's mini or if all are small - I don't use blush. Has glitters.)

(Mini polish in Army of 1. I love this color!)

(Mini lip gloss in Natural.)

(Dual ended eyeliner in Deep Brown and Black. Kinda small but not totally mini.)

(Lipstick in Cappuccino. Lovely color, but too dark for me! By the way, this is in a plastic and cheap casing unlike the usual ULTA lipsticks and has no pleasant smell like ULTA's norm.)

(Legendary Lengths mascara in Jet Black.)

(Mini facial moisturizer.)

Well, these are the contents of the Willow - Trendy bag! I hope to see the contents of the other bags. I'm pleased with this. I haven't used any of these products yet, but I do know ULTA's eyeshadows are amazing as I use those on the daily. I suggest going to ULTA and picking one of these up with your purchase - they're a fun surprise!

BBW Mini Haul

Yesterday, I went to the mall and strolled into Bath and Body Works. I love this store. Anyway, I left with these gems:

The best part? I only spent $5.47!

Big Lots

I've been a bit bored. It's leading to posting more than a few entries in one day- oh no!
Anyway, I've wanted to share an amazing store with the world. I'm sure a lot of people have seen and heard of it, but have they actually ventured inside?


Big Lots. This store is like a sanctuary to me! They carry a vast array of discontinued and hard-to-find items. People often think that the items are expired, but never have I once seen something in there past its prime. Last week I found some good snacks. 

The very first thing I picked up from the store was a little theater box of candy called 16 Candles. "Tastes like birthday cake!" it boasts on the front. They're made in the U.S., which is nice. They were so curious! I had to get them. I only paid a dollar, anyway! 


Hmm, okay. They're VERY sweet. Not sickingly sweet, but very sweet. They remind me of Cookie Dough Bites, yet they're so much tastier. The side of the box states that these are covered in yogurt, but it tastes more like white confection. The inside is crumbly, but tastes like sugar cookies. Overall, yummy.

I also picked up this fifty-cents bottle of Mango-Peach Water. I'll be honest - I didn't drink it yet. It smells like Vitamin Water, which appalls me. I'll get to it at some point, though! It was a very cute and squat bottle, by the way.


This is the the product that is behind my praising of Big Lots. CHEETOS MIGHTY ZINGERS. No one knows about these - anyone I ask. They came out about a year or two ago in a few flavors and I was immediately hooked. Of course, anything I like soon gets discontinued. Big Lots sincerely made me happy by carrying ONE BAG of these. And it was only $1.60 for a big bag! 


And last but not least, Big Lots feeds my addiction. What is that addiction, you ask?


Snyder's Pretzel Pieces. Little gems of Heaven, if you ask me. Big Lots has them for TWO DOLLARS a bag, while the grocery store is almost $3.50. I also picked up some Red Bull Cola and True Color energy drinks, but I already drank them before I could get pictures.






Hand-Sanitizer Haul

Bath and Body Works - one of my favorite stores, no doubt. Somehow, everything in BBW is amazing, but I am mostly attracted to their hand-sanitizers and lip glosses. It's a bad thing when people let me go in here, because I come out with stuff like this!


I emerged from the store with a hefty bag of ELEVEN hand-sanitizers there to add to my existing BBW sanitizer collection! I'll give short reviews for each starting from the top left:

- Blueberry Pancake: smells like blueberries or very sweet wild berries. I love this one!

- Apple Pie: smells like red apples.

- Blueberry Cake Donut: mmmm, smells like freshly baked sugar cookies!

- Raspberry Frost Donut: smells like the frosting on the Dunkin' Donuts strawberry frosted donuts.

- Chocolate Chew (ghost): smells like sweet chocolate.

- Black Cherry (Scary Cats): smells like black cherry.

- Sour Drop (haunted house) x2: smells like sweet/sour candy. I love this one!

- Jelly Jam Donut: smells like fruit punch.

- Chocolate Crème Donut: smells somewhat like Chocolate Chew, but milder.

- Cinnamon Glazed Donut: mmm, smells like a cinnamon bun. 

 Every one of these smells amazing - hurry and pick them up while they're on sale!

I Have Returned!

I've been in and out of school last week due to a severe toothache that developed from a bad cavity. I had no choice but to go to the dentist (breaking the bank!) and get the tooth pulled. For the past two days I've been eating potatoes, pudding, and ice cream!

This is what I'm chowing down on right now:
Turkey Hill Snyder's® Chocolate Pretzel Light Ice Cream - Snyder's® of Hanover chocolate covered pretzels and fudge swirling through premium, light vanilla ice cream.

Little Spheres of Heaven



This little tin was a favor from a baby shower. It had about eight little bite-sized crunchy-coated (not quite nonpareil) gumdrops. The multi-colored ones tasted like a mixed berry and the white ones tasted like pineapple. I can't bring myself to eat another just yet - they're too good to eat fast!
