TJ Maxx September 2018 Makeup Haul

Back in September, while browsing a local TJ Maxx without finding anything, I decided to look in the makeup section. I’ve heard online (Youtube specifically) that TJ Maxx sometimes has Too Faced eye shadow pallets, so I decided to look for some. I didn’t find any, but I did find some makeup I wanted to try and, if I liked them, I’d purchased them in a color that matched my skin tone better.

5 Tips for Picking a Halloween Costume (From a Costuming Hobbyist)

It’s near October and that means Halloween is right is coming! That also means it’s time to start buying or even making costumes for a Halloween party or for a child.

Even though I do not consider myself an expert in costumes, I’ve sewn for a hobby over 20 years and do make costumes to occasionally wear to my local renaissance festival and, sometimes, to pop culture conventions.

Since I’m used to sewing and budgeting for buying fabric and supplies for new sewing projects, I wanted to share five tips to picking a Halloween costume that I don’t see discussed very often. Even though I learned these tips from sewing costumes and sewing in general, they can be used for simply buying a new costume for a Halloween party when you are on a budget or want to be frugal with your money.

Yankee Summer Candle Sale Haul- August 2018

One day, while shopping at Walmart, I decided to browse the clearance aisle. Since the Walmart I shopped at is not my local Walmart, I was curious to see what they had on clearance. I’m very happy I did because I found Yankee candles on clearance for really good prices. Since the candles are summer scents, I decided to stock up on them because I have plenty of fall and winter scented candles, but no summer scented ones.

Sephora VIB Sale Haul- August 2018

On August 31, I shopped at Sephora during their VIB sale. I was not expecting to go shopping at Sephora that month, but I decided to go anyway to see if there was anything I might like to purchase. After browsing, I settled on one bottle of perfume and a liquid lipstick that was in the clearance section of the store.

Fall Bath and Body Works Haul- August 2018 Part 2

After my last Bath and Body Works haul, I decided to go back to a Bath and Body Works store and find some fall themed holders for my new hand sanitizes.

I ended up finding two holders, one looks like a football but is covered in rhinestones…

Fall Bath and Body Works Haul- August 2018 Part 1

Hi everyone! It’s that time of the year when you can smell the scents of fall… even though it’s still summer. Fall is my favorite time of the year not just because my favorite holidays (Including my birthday) land in the fall, but also because it means the heat of the Arizona summer is fading, which makes everyone I know very happy!

I’m already caught up in the excitement and purchased some fall decor items, but the one thing I wanted to do was shop at Bath and Body Works for their fall and Halloween candles, hand sanitizes, and other themed items. I never shopped at Bath and Body Works for fall, but I wanted to make an effort to do it this year simply because I was curious to see what they had for sale. During the month of August, I was able to purchased four candles and some hand sanitizes that I believe will be a great addition to my house when Autumn finally arrives.

Target Beauty Haul- August 2018

During the month of August, I didn’t do much shopping for beauty supplies because I was well stocked on everything I use on a regular basis. Even though I didn’t need a lot of beauty supplies, I did go to Target and pick up a few beauty related things that I wanted a back up of or wanted to try out.

Marshall’s Kate Spade Live Colorfully Gift Set

Before I begin this post, I wanted to apologize for most of my most recent posts are haul posts only. I’m in the process of switching computers and a few possible life changes. Because of this, I did not think of original posts that will be fun to read. So, bear with me while I work through the older haul post I never got around to posting.

Last month, after a bad week at work that ended on a high note, I decided to go shopping at Marshall’s and see if I could find a new fragrance that I would like to buy to celebrate the end of the week. While there, I found a Kate Spade Live Colorfully gift set…

Marshall’s Haul July 2018- Part 1

Last week I talked about two fragrances I purchased at my nearest Marshall’s in July. Finding the Kate Spade and Burberry fragrances made me want to see if the Marshall’s had other fragrances that I would like. While on a shopping trip to Marshall’s to find a pair of sunglasses to replace one that broke, I found another fragrance I would like to try. Continue reading “Marshall’s Haul July 2018- Part 1”
