Victoria’s Secret Coupon Weekend!!

Nothing like a good sale over President’s imagesWeekend, and I love me some coupons. But usually I hate getting tons of emails day after day from the store, trying to entice me to come in to buy something.

One of these exceptions is my email subscription to the Victoria’s Secret email list. This past weekend it saved me 20% off a most expensive item (I used it twice, no blackouts!) and saved me $40 in total. Love not spending retail price!!

What’s your favorite item to buy at Victoria’s Secret? I can never decide. I have almost the entire Pink collection and their Bridal selection is pretty awesome too (my hubby to be certainly doesn’t mind shopping there!). I’m definitely not an “extreme couponer”, but at the same time, I do stockpile my body lotions and bath gels from there. This weekend they also had their Fragrance Mists for just $5 (normally $12), so I picked up a couple. Gotta have my bathroom smelling nice! Their Pink fragrances are also a great deal and last literally forever compared to other designer scents. I wonder why that is!

Sale @ Ulta!!

I love Ulta beauty for many reasons including coupons and sales! They always have deals or are sending me coupons and if I forget them, I can look them up on Retailmenot. It’s one of my fave couponing apps on my phone.

And just wanted to share with you that I was able to find Cargo cosmetics for 50% off there! What a steal! Anyone else have good luck with Ulta or deals they want to share??

Covering Up on Cloudy Days!

On days like these where I want to crawl into bed because it’s gloomy outside (I sometimes think I have Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is why I love sunny So-Cal! self-diagnosed), I have to have my extra dose of caffeine to keep me going but also remember to take care of my skin!

That’s right, I am a SPF-hound (and I play SPF police with everyone in my family, making sure they wear sunscreen especially on days like this!!). My fave ones are tinted moisturizers because it gives you an effortless glow and at the same time, decreases your risk of developing melanoma (skin cancer) and keeps your skin from burning.

I especially love this Becca version (@ select Sephora stores) because it feels great on my skin, makes it look like I bothered to put makeup on, and has an SPF of 25. Win win!!

Sunglasses burn, stay away and come again another day, and while you’re at it, take the grey sky along with you.

What’s your fave tinted moisturizer??
