Pharmasave Mini Haul & Week's Shopping Review

This photo makes it look like my camera has two flashes... weird.

Not the most exciting haul ever... once I got home I realized I forgot to check out the sale on Revlon lip gloss, which was the main reason I stopped in. I did however pick up a tube of Clean and Clear Persa-Gel 5 (finally) and found Garnier Nutrisse Cream hair dye in the clearance bin for $4.99 each. I am a raven haired gal by nature but am currently sporting dark brown locks with caramel-y highlights but they are fading too light, so it is time for a change. I picked up Cinnamon Stick #45 and Iced Tea #525. Cinnamon is a dark mahogany while iced tea is a medium mahogany, but they look really similar. Based on the number of boxes of iced tea that were in the bin, I would say Garnier is fading out the shade.

As for my week's shopping... well to quote Fiona Apple "I've been a bad, bad girl. I've been careless with a delicate man." Wait, not the delicate man business, but I have definitely been bad. I have been trying to curb (ie majorly cut down) my online credit card spending, and up until this past week I have been doing seriously well. Yeah, um... I guess I have to start curbing again. Want to know what I got? Of course you do!

First came Lush.
I've wanted to order a few things for a while now, and to be honest my spending splurge was caused by some "relationship tension" so I let myself have a little "therapy". I made myself stick to a budget though (no more than $50 all said and done) so I get points for that right?


Have you seen the Christmas Sampler? (photo above) Omg, Lush lovers, grab a bib you are now entering drool town. As for exactly what I got... you'll have to wait until it arrives.

Then a purchase from The Shopping Channel.I picked the limited Kelly Green (not shown) but it does come with the cleansers!

The showstopper the other day was the Clarisonic Mia. I watched a bit of the info on tv before I went to bed. I think I went to be thinking about it, and guess what? I woke up thinking about it. While drinking my morning tea and watching the info on tv (yes, again) I convinced myself to buy one. If not for me, but for the benefit of my skin. I am claiming this one as a Christmas present to myself.

I was pretty content with those purchases until I started reading Liquored on Lacquer and saw Concrete Minerals. I wasn't intending on ordering anything, but I think you know I totally did. I ordered a four pack with the shades Lovey Dovey, Harlequin, SoulJourner and Lolita.

And since they make their own primer and my fast Google-age of it seemed to be positive, I ordered one of those too.

My plastic had a relatively busy week and I will be all giddy for days waiting for all my goodies to arrive. Did you buy anything interesting?

    Good luck! Every time you see something you want just try thinking about something much more fabulous that you are saving for.
