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. 🙂

A day late and a lot of dollars short

A day late and a lot of dollars short

Hi, hello, welcome

Happy 5th of July dear friends! I hope everyone had a safe and fun holiday and partied it up for the sake of America. I am so very sorry I didn’t get a post up yesterday.. I just didn’t know if people would even be coherent enough to read yesterday so I decided to save today’s post for a day of crippling hangovers and daunting sobriety. 

No major casualties on the home front for me, but that is only because I am gearing up for the big ol 21st birthday extravaganza coming this weekend. And if you ever thought that you spent your 21st birthday the right way, I want to tell you that you are wrong.. only because it will be getting HOT IN HEREEEE when I am partying it up with Nelly.. and my grandma. Is it weird that I don’t know which one I am more excited for?? Big Mama Farley can really get down, and she has even threatened to wear my red thigh-highs to the club, so look out world, here she comes!

Anywhooooo today is a Wednesday (I know it’s Thursday) in Ciera’s blogging world, so it is a FAVORITE DAY!!! This post is brought to you by the unnecessary trips I take to Sephora and Ulta every week. I really will never wrap my head around the fact that my whole bag weighs less than 10 ounces but somehow still costs me $95??? Like how? What did I do to deserve such misfortune?? Like the other day I walked up to the counter at Sephora with three things that could all comfortably fit in the palm of one of my hands and the cashier has the audacity to say, “Your total is $115, that’s a good deal!” Umm how? So confusion aside, the moral of the story is that beauty is not pain.. it’s expensive. Since I love you all though, I sacrifice myself to the treachery of expensive beauty care so I can help you know where to throw your money at.. and this post is muy importante, so better late than never if you ask me.  So here we go with my favorites for the week. 🙂

  1. The most perfect-est lash primer known to the world and heavens above. This Lancôme lash primer gives you the spider-y-est lashes in the best way possible. I had seen another blogger rave about it, and in my poor financial decision phase the other day, I had to have it.. and I do no regret it one bit. (It doesn’t flake or make your eyelashes clump)
  2. This one is gonna throw you for a loop, I am sure of it.. but the IGK Dirty Spray is everything I have been looking for. So ya know how based off of the constructs of society we must wash our hair like once a week? And then for some reason the hair gods punish us for this behavior by leaving clean hair looking flat and lifeless? Well the dirty spray is pretty much the opposite of a dry shampoo and 20 times the power of texturizing spray. It gives your hair some grit and texture to hold some curl and avoid it sticking flat to your head. It is truly amazing. 
  3. LOVING TAN tanning mousse is where it’s at yo. I have tried a lot of different self tanners, as my mumsy and I are on a never-ending hunt to find the best one, and let me tell ya.. I think I have found it. Loving Tan 2 hour express in the Dark shade leaves me as bronzed as a goddess and as browned as a biscuit. It is the perfect shade, super quick application and development, and it doesn’t sweat off. Whoop Whoop!

So if you were wondering what to do with your excess money, get yourself a couple of these products and be so so happy with your life. And tomorrow I promise to have the cute workout gear post up. 🙂

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!
