I know it's been sometime since I was able to buy anything to do a review on. I think after Christmas, which always makes everyone broke, even when you budget money in, you end up having to pay your credit card off.
I tend to forget about certain expenses but this year, I am determined NOT make this mistake AGAIN! I went to Hallmark and they had some Christmas cards on clearance for under $10 USD. I got a couple of boxes of cards for $2.00 USD so I have all of those and also some left overs from last year that I'll use the next Christmas. So talk about trying to save a few bucks.
I also didn't get the Real Technique's Beauty sponge till a few weeks ago. They were sold out at my local Ulta and I didn't want to buy it online since I wanted to send a couple to some friends of mine. This I found extremely frustrating since most of the local Ulta's that are near my house were out of the item! It was crazy... But I finally was able to take a few pictures and…
When I was in college I had short hair and then grew it out. When my hair is longer it tends to be really "poofy". So I bought a flat iron and began to flat iron my hair. I'd go get a hair cut and my hair would be nice and smooth. When I tried to blow dry my hair at home, instant poof. I hated it. I wanted to get a magic straight perm but there weren't any salons I knew of back then. So I had to suffer with bizarre hair
One day I decided to get the digital perm. I loved it. My mom hated it. Who cares though, my mom didn't pay for it. ;-) Sorry Mom if you're reading this but I really liked it better with a perm or straight perm. Anyways it helped combat the bizarre curls and either my whole head is curly or my whole head is straight hair, no more in between. The digital perm lasted for several months and I got it done twice. So it lasted for about two years. I loved it. So much easier and prettier than my half straight or half curly hair.
In my search of finding a cheap eye shadow palette, I spotted some Hard Candy products in Walmart a few weeks ago. I didn't have the money to buy them all at the time so I waited until I returned some products I didn't like. I didn't realize even if the products were from Walmart, I had $67.00 USD in returned products! I didn't bring the receipts but I got a shopping card. Walmart didn't loose any money and neither did I. I will just buy makeup products with that money and if there is something I don't like, I will return it and have the money put back on my shopping card.
I was thinking of buying the Urban Decay Naked palette back when I bought the Tarte Limited Edition box set. I want to find a dupe for Urban Decay but I doubt I'll find anything for it. I hope for Christmas this year I'll have some money left over, I am being very frugal with my money, and buy BOTH the original and new Naked Palette. So here's what I bought of Hard Cand…
