This week is a special week around here. Not only did I start what may be my final year at UNR as a college student (I use the term ‘may be’ loosely because really I have no idea how much longer I have) yesterday, but there are a whole stinkin’ lot of sales this week/weekend and I would never let any of you miss out on a single one.. unless you don’t like dogs.. in that case, please pay full price. But in all seriousness ya girl has become majorly busy once again but it’s all in the name of education and fashion. And I promise you, my loyal fans 😉 that I will not leave you hangin’ this semester, and I will stay strong.
However before we really get into this post I have something very serious to discuss. It pains me to say this and I wish it didn’t have to come to this but… I used the picture from the last Sephora sale for my cover photo here. I am more upset than you are, but like I said, busy bee over here. Here’s the thing though, if any of you noticed, that makes me a photo repeater and you a photo rememberer(er-er?) So really that is just as bad! 😉 If you don’t understand my Lizzie McGuire Movie reference, please take the next hour and a half to learn yoself a few things about one of the greatest movies of my childhood.
Sorry sorry I am chatty right now. I think whenever I am in school my blogposts are a little lengthier since I spend 6 hours of my day discussing RNA transcription and explaining for the millionth time how a synapse works.. this is my place to let it fly free and talk about the good stuff.
Okay, anyway.. Back again for real now. As I was trying to say, this week is a time of wonder and excitement as all of the frequent shopper & labor day sales hit the world wide web. Number one on my list for this week is the Sephora Beauty Insider Event. Remember last Sephora sale when I think I blacked out and spent like every penny to my name on everything beauty? Well this sale is just as good, but ya girl’s pockets are a little but emptier. So since I am broke as a joke and wanting to eat this week, I’ve gotta be a little pickier with my choices and really get the goods. I’ve done my scouting and come up with the top 10 items I think you (and I) should get from this momentous sale.
Sale access began for Rogue members (20% off) on August 24th and opens to VIB (15% off) and Beauty Insider members (10% off) tomorrow through September 3rd! You MUST be a Beauty Insider in some capacity to reap the rewards from the sale (it is super easy to sign up if you are not already on the list. Sign up here) And once you are in the clurrrrb you are good to go! Happy shopping. 🙂
Ya know the saying ‘when it rains it pours’?? Well that has been my life in a nutshell lately because just 3 days after my car giving out on me, my computer was hacked. ‘Twas a great time, truly. But we are on the up and up round here and my life has made a steep improvement with a functioning computer and great possibility of getting my car back in the morning! Yee doggy.
But I was just thinking about the fact that summer is practically halfway through and I will be headed back to school soon enough, but it still seems to be a good idea to do some swimsuit shopping if you ask me. It is hotter than Hades and looks to be staying that way for the foreseeable future so I say there is no better time than now to get a few more swimmies and some other summer essentials. Like really, who says you can’t buy swimsuits at the end of summer? Probably some people.. but we don’t like those ones because we make the rules around here.
Really though, get those swimsuits now because once winter comes and you are planning to jetset off to Cabo, the only options you will have are the competitive suits that squeeze in all of the wrong places. And maybe the new bathing suit will give you that incentive to book the tropical vacay you need.. $50000 might be better incentive but we have gotta take what we can get. So buy them now and thank me later. 🙂
Also just wanna chat about summer accessories that you should NOT leave the house without.. If you said clothes, you are not wrong.. just because it is summer , doesn’t mean you can saunter around naked. However the real accessory we should discuss is some good skincare. Slap sunscreen on here, there, everywhere. The only thing worse than a fried lobster is a wrinkly, sun-damaged one some years down the road. And then invest in some serum or gel to soothe your skin and add some moisture after a long day in the sun. I shall include my faves here so you can stay protected all year round. K enjoy them now.
So take my advice for once in your life.. I am right occasionally. K bye.
The sun is shining, I am covered in dirt from the marina, and Oakley is soaking wet while passed out on my bed.. so no better time to write a blogpost than now. And of course today’s post is all about my current faves so you are in for a real treat.
Lately I have been trying to change up my products and try new things instead of sticking with the exact routine every time just so I can tell you all about the hippest and happenin’. I figure it is my civic duty to spend my money on the trends so I can save you some time and money by leading you in the right direction. You can thank me now or later, your choice. 😉 but really, hopefully these blogposts give you some ideas of the things you absolutely need and the ones you can most likely skip.
Alsoooooo I don’t really believe in negative reviews on my blog because that is no good for anyone so don’t expect me to tell you a list of things you shouldn’t try, but instead the best of the best things you SHOULD try. Okay, I will get off my soapbox now.. just had to give a quick little spiel (and let us all laugh at the fact that up until now I thought that ‘spiel’ was spelled ‘schpeel’… close)
Now onto the favorites, so here we go!
Number one – Bio oil is where it’s at. It heals all wounds, probably contains unicorn tears and locks of angel hair to make it work so well.. but to be honest it is the best moisturizer/skin healer known to mankind. This stuff has made my battle scars disappear.
Number two – the CUTEST pink suede hat you will ever see. My mom and I are on the constant hunt for cute Dodgers hats and I think this one officially tops the list. They also have it for the Yankees, but no one really likes them anyway.
Number three – Watermelon glow mask… I am the biggest fan of watermelon you will ever meet so I may be biased, but this stuff is top notch. Ever since I started Accutane my face has been dryer than the overcooked chicken Brittany and I attempt every week, but this mask has saved my life. It leaves your skin real glowy and smells so good you could eat it.. I wouldn’t do that though.
I hope you loved this week’s installment once again. Until next time. <3
