You Beauty Queen, You

You Beauty Queen, You

Hey there,

Happy Wednesday (I think.. it is Wednesday, right?) Honestly I have no idea anymore, but happy day of the week.. whichever one it may be. 🙂 Hopefully you have taken the time in the past few days to compile a list of things that aren’t all so bad during this uncertain time. Remember, I assigned it as a homework in the last post? It’s cool if you didn’t do it, just know that it’s chalking up to a zero in my book. 😉 Most definitely kidding there. I have no sense of what day it is, let alone a grading system to keep track of.

Whether you made the list or not, I am here to tell you that there are more things to be super stoked about. And that thing, my dear friends, is the spring sale at Sephora. You read that right, it is time to save dat money (while also spending it, but we don’t talk about that) I know right now isn’t exactly the most popular time to spend money or get yourself all done up to plant yourself at home, but hear me out here… these may just be a few products you NEED. The word ‘need’ is a relative term here and may be an over-exaggeration, but it’s my blog.. let me write it how I want to. 🙂

So essentially the way the sale works is that you save money – I know, I was shocked too 😉 But really, Rouge members save 20%, VIB members save 15%, and insiders save 10%. Now if you don’t already have an account, you can sign up to be an insider now at no cost to ya (besides the money you spend on the products. I will not be held accountable for your actions!) The sale has already started for Rouge and VIB members, and starts tomorrow for those of you late bloomers that are just starting off as insiders! The code for the discount is ‘SPRINGSAVE’ and just has to be entered at checkout.

Quick intermission for some video and photo evidence of when my dear brother did my makeup since I haven’t taken a whole bunch of photos lately, and it seems like a good time to expose myself while showing off his artistic talent. Beware.

My apologies to your eyes for those. I promise that buying these products and the correct usage of them will not result in anything close to the looks done by Jusibear boo boo pie.

Now, with you all in mind, I have compiled my picks into three separate categories in which you can browse (and maybe even purchase) at your own convenience. Happy shopping!! Disclaimer: I tried not to include anything that has already sold out, but my deepest condolences if you do come across an item that is gone with the wind.

  1. Need you now – these babies are tried and true or near and dear to my heart, and I absolutely cannot live a day without them.
  2. I see it, I like it, I want it, I got it (and would reorder, but probably can’t count them as necessities) – I’ve bought these a few times and really love these fellas too.
  3. Rich b*tch status – no, these items are not all expensive, but I’m broke and have to make tough choices about which items to purchase. Buuuuuutttt these are the things that if I was a rich girl, see I’d have all of the money in the world (and not have to pick & choose, therefore I would also buy all of these things)

If you picked up on the fact that all of those categories were loosely based off song lyrics and began singing in your head, thank you, you are my people. <3 Anyway, I hope you get to shopping and pick up some good good at one of the best sales of the year!!

Yas QUEEN.. Get yo beauty on

Yas QUEEN.. Get yo beauty on

What’s up dear friends of mine,

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. 🙂

THERE’S A SALE GOING ON AT SEPHORA

THERE’S A SALE GOING ON AT SEPHORA

Hiya,

Has anyone every played Mall Madness?? As I was writing that title it gave me terrible flashbacks to each time that little machine would say there was a sale. Also, why did that game never end?? I would make it to the final destination and then it would tell me to go somewhere else.. was I just that bad at Mall Madness? Anywho, I am running a little late with today’s post, my apologies. I’ve been a very busy gal!

BUUUUUUUUTTTT today’s post is uber exciting because Sephora is having a sale this weekend. Yes, a sale. Which means more beauty supplies and less money in your wallet, but like in a good way. I always like to think of how much money I saved instead of spent when big sales like this happen.. it hurts the heart a little less. To get 10% off your purchase, you must be a beauty insider, which if you are not already you can go sign up online! But if you’re super cool like me (and share an account with your mom like me too), then you are up to VIB status and get 15% off your purchase! WHOOP WHOOP! The sale is April 20-23, in store and online. I promise the good stuff will go first so don’t you forget about it!

I also included some of my Sephora favorites that I already own, along with some of the things I am eyeing and will most likely end up buying this weekend. 🙂 Next week I will let you know about my haul and try some of the new stuff, along with a little makeup session with my favorite pale-faced ginger done by professional makeup artist, me (just kidding I don’t even know how to put on eyeliner, but I’ll try my best).

Okayy, here’s my picks now.

I hope you get all sorts of beautified, and get crazyyyy!
