I’ve been away for a while because as summer winded down, I just wanted to enjoy the last month or so with my family. We spent a week at a beach visiting family and then we decided to take a few day trips to local beaches and towns we had yet to explore. It was a lot of fun and it really energized me. The funny thing is, I hate the summer, but I was determined to get the most out of it this year. I also forgot how much I love the beach. I’m not a sun person, so I convinced myself that I just wasn’t a beach person, but really, it’s one of my favorite places to be. I don’t lay in the sun (it just isn’t my thing and never has been), but I could fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing and I could probably happily live on a beach, despite my hatred of the heat.
Other than that, I chopped off 10″ of hair (down to collarbone length), had school-related activities to do with my children, and overall, just relaxed. Did you do anything interesting this summer? Anything to commemorate the end of summer? (Or, maybe it isn’t summer where you live and you’re enjoying cooler weather.)
I did have time to shop at Ulta and these items were purchased during a 20% off sale. As always, I purchased a discounted gift card to cover the purchase. If you want to read more about that, wrote about that here. Now that I’m done blabbing, here’s what I got:
Here are the items I purchased from the left:
6.) Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer in Medium (I like this; this is a repurchase. My suggestion is to remove the sponge applicator portion and use the product that way. It’s cleaner and you save more product this way.)
8.) Super BB All-In-1 Beauty Balm Cream in Light/Medium (I really like this product, it’s highly rated on Paula’s Choice Beautypedia, and it’s pretty inexpensive, especially if you wait for coupon and/or sale.)
Have you purchased any holiday palettes yet? I haven’t and I don’t know if I will. I typically purchase a blush palette, but I really don’t need one.
