I’ve done some interesting shopping today. I’ve purchased my first pair of super skinny jeans. And it’s a bit scary. I’m not what you’d call a skinny jeans kinda girl, thanks in part to my huge calves but I love the feel of the super skinny pop jeans from Old Navy and they were on sale so I bought my first pair. I didn’t go too crazy mind you because I don’t like the corduroy ones, or the dot ones, or the brightly colored ones so I stayed pretty tame by just getting the denim version. I plan on wearing them with my adoraboots, also from Old Navy. While at the store I also purchased the cute Santa’s Little Helper long sleeve shirt. I won’t be wearing it all together but they’re cute pieces. Now I’ve got to summon up the courage to wear the skinny jeans outside lol!
The Old Navy stuff & save is in its final 2 days and so I decided to grab a few more things. Last week I bought a peacoat for my brother and he wore it to Berkeley when we visited my grandmother, she loved the coat and asked me to find her one so I did, I bought her almost the same coat in women’s, hopefully it fits but she can always exchange it. I also went through the clearance and picked up a few shirts. I may just get some plain thermals since they have them in all sorts of new colors. Tomorrow is the last day of the 30% off sale, so go take advantage while you can!
A bunch of neat sales going on this week and I plan on taking advantage of all of them!
Everyday Minerals has one of the best mineral foundations and they’re based in Texas, so shipping is fairly fast. They also offer affordable samples of their products so you can find the right shades. They offer 4 different bases for their foundation: matte, semi-matte, IT and Jojoba. I have fairly oily skin so I like the matte and semi-matte. They usually sell the .17 oz (4.8g) big containers for $15.99 but they’re having a promotion right now for 50% off the semi-matte. To compare you can get a big size of Bare Minerals .28 oz (8g) for $27. I use both everyday right now, I combine EM’s Sandy Beige and my BM in Medium Tan along with the Sunshine Color corrector and apply that to my face everyday. You can also save big by making a custom kit at EM, you chose three products from the bases, blushes, bronzers and shine control powders, and save 25%. That’s the deal I used, no coupon code required.
Elf (eyeslipsface) has another great deal going on. I got the email this morning about their eyes promotion. The coupon code is OHMYEYES, with a minimum purchase of $20 you get 50% off all eye products. I was especially excited that elf finally has eye pencils! I’m currently obsessed with eye pencils (as you may have seen) and they have them at $2, so I got all 10 shades for half off. Plus the waterproof eye liners I love come in more colors, so I bought the new colors.
Finally Old Navy is having a 40% off Stuff and Save. I’m excited since I’ve never gone to one. Basically if you have the Old Navy card you get a free tote, fill it up with all the stuff you want and save 40% off, that’s only the first day though, after that from the 18th to the 24th you get 30% off, still a good deal but I plan on going the first day. I am giving myself a limit but I do have a gift card too so I told my brother I’d buy him a peacoat.
I’ll be sure to post photos of everything when I get it. I should be getting my Birchbox in the next few days as well, and my new shirts from Fanatics.
