I picked up this Jessica Simpson jacket for from Ross for only $9.99 (retail: $79.99) while waiting for my friend to get off work. I thought it was pretty cute for just 10 bucks -I love outerwear so it's a nice addition to my wardrobe without hurting my wallet. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the frayed bottom edge but it's not very noticeable.Lip Smackers for only $2.99! I thought I'd get into Lip Smackers again and also give some to my little sister since she's building a little "lip balm collection." She told me today, "Kali I have four! That's almost more than you!" LOL I didn't have the heart to tell her that I must have maybe 30 or 40 lip balms.
The Body Shop during my previous visit and Dec. 31st was the last day to use them. Surprisingly, they allowed me to return a recent purchase and re-buy the items. I had two awesome coupons that were $5 off any purchase of $5 of more and I'm KICKING MYSELF for not printing more. I didn't print extras because I thought they'd only allow me to use one but they were so cool about it and let me do separate transactions! I scored three Wild Cherry Lip Butters, a mini Cranberry Joy Body Butter, and a Cranberry Joy Lip Balm for only $2 (plus tax)! She was also so so so nice and gave me a free little goodie bag that includes a Body Butter and some samples -these were meant for The Body Shop's Love Your Body members but she gave me one anyway.
The reason I won't sign up is because the last TWO years I signed up, I missed out on my birthday gift (each is worth $10.) Every time I came to get the gift, it was already too late and my membership had expired and they couldn't do anything about it. Plus I rarely go to The Body Shop unless there's some massive sale going on.
Tarte's "Beauty in a Box: Bronze Smoky Eye" Set that's on sale for $34. I've been wanting their Clean Slate primer which is $30 so I figured I'd pay $4 more and get five extra products. Also, again, I was totally KICKING MYSELF because I wanted to buy this online since Sephora had an extra 20% off all sale items going on AND for cashback purposes (via Ebates.) I could've saved about $7 plus gotten my cashback but I lagged and it was sold out online on Tuesday or Wednesday. I also picked up a NARS Orgasm Illuminator deluxe sample since I just felt like getting a free gift lol (100 points from Sephora's BI program.) I bought it when it first came out but ended up returning it because I wasn't sold on it (review here) but I thought I'd give it another try.
On Friday I came back and while browsing, I found Illamasqua's Lover blush!! I was so excited I bought it on the spot. I've been looking for it for around two months now but it's been sold out online and in every store in the Bay Area (I called around..)
Oh and you see the pink case in the corner? I picked up a JK Jemma Kidd Classic Couture Lipstick in A-List. I wanted Minx (pretty pale pink) but they were sold out so I just bought this to try it out -I'll probably review it for Nudey Tuesday.
That's it for my haul! I was crazy sad on Friday so I'm glad I'm out of that funk and starting to get back to normal. Tomorrow I'll work on a "Best of 2010" post -just didn't have the time today or yesterday. Have a lovely Sunday everyone! <3
