School’s Out for Summer!
Today was the first full day of Summer Break for me, and it has been… an adjustment. I know that I have no papers looming over my head, but I keep freaking out thinking that something is going to come due within the next few days. Bloody school has broken my brain, heh. But I’ll have myself a nice week or two off (besides work), before I have to start searching for a place to do my field practicum. I’m hoping to get some of those hours put away over the summer, so I don’t have to cram it all into three months next semester.
Seeing as I have more time to sit down and experiment and write, we should see some more activity in this blog soon. First up will be the Yes to Carrots makeup remover I bought on clearance a while back… so for those of you who asked, I haven’t forgotten! I’ll also be weighing in on the C.O. Bigelow Power Berry Mask, Madd Style Cosmetics, and the Sugarpill ‘Sweetheart’ palette. Joy!
STEALS & DEALS
A few things for Bath and Body Works fans; the Spring VIP bag is now in stores! Inside is a standard ritual of Country Chic, a preview of the newest Summer Coconut lotion, a wallflower and bulb, body sponge, pocketbac and clip, and a bottle of their amazing lavender foaming soap. I’m a bit of a lavender snob, and this soap really impressed me. It’s definitely worth the $20 (with $40 purchase – can be combined with coupons)! Also, the Signature Vanillas collection was 50% off today, along with Mother’s Day pocketbacs, Country Chic lip glosses, Royal Wedding lip glosses, Signature Vanillas lip glosses, and three of the Bigelow Lemon lip balms (Black Cherry Lemon, Raspberry Lemon, and Blueberry Lemon). It took everything I had not to pick up the Blueberry Lemon lip balm, because I am a HUGE balm junkie, but I’m doing so well with my detox that I’d hate to break it now!
Finally, if you’re down with NYX, Cherry Culture (dot com) is having a rather slammin’ sale on select items, 50% off. Discount taken at checkout, with coupon code NMS50. This sale lasts until May 8th. Why do I have to be on a no-buy now? Why?
