Saturday night my fiancé and I drove to the other side of town to hit up some stores that we don’t get to very often. We started at BevMo, probably one of my fiancé’s favorite stores. He’s like a kid in a candy store in there, which is funny because he rarely drinks alcohol. We bought a couple things, including a Christmas present so it was a successful trip. We had dinner at Souplantation. I LOVE Souplantation but it’s so hard to eat there when you are avoiding dairy. The ranch dressing was taunting me and the cheese bread was calling my name. I stayed strong though and I avoided all the dairy.
We ended our evening at Sprouts. We grabbed a couple things and I was pleasantly surprised to find Honeycrisp apples for 98 cents a pound! Honeycrisp apples are my favorite but they are usually close to 4 dollars a pound so I avoid them. This time I stocked up.
We went out and did more shopping on Sunday. This time our main focus was Christmas. We made a list of who we needed to buy gifts for before hand and we were on a mission. We were able to cross a couple people off our list and we got some ideas for other gifts. My fiancé likes to search for the item we are staring at as we are in front of it. Amazon had a few items at a much lower price so he ended up ordering those items online.
This was in Macy’s. One side is a full stock of bathing suits and the other side is Christmas décor. I saw this and I told my fiancé, “Only in the desert." For those of you who don't live in California, it is still warm enough here to go swimming. We're supposed to be in the 80's for the rest of the week.
I found this tissue paper at World Market. I wish I knew someone who loved locks and keys as much as I do. I wanted to buy it but then I would want to buy and give gifts to myself.
The kind folks at Ocean Spray sent me their new line of water to try. The new flavors are Cranberry Raspberry, Cranberry Mango Passionfruit, Cranberry Blood Orange and Cranberry Pomegranate. I’m pretty sure my favorite flavor is Cranberry Mango Passionfruit but they are all very good. Not too sweet and very refreshing. The ingredients are: Purified Water, Cranberry Extract, Agave Nectar, Natural Flavors, Sea Salt, Monk Fruit Extract and Stevia Extract. There are only 10 calories, 3 grams of carbs and 2 grams of sugar per bottle.
I’m on the search for a new foundation. I’ve been using Clinique Acne Solutions for a few years now. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great foundation. But I’ve heard that we need to switch it up every now and then because our skin gets used to it and I’m starting to feel like it’s not enough coverage for me. I reached out to my cousin, who knows so much more about makeup then I do, and she gave me a couple great suggestions. She also told me to go to Sephora or Ulta to get some samples before I purchase.
I went to Sephora while we were at the mall and I got samples for three different foundations. The one I’m wearing today is the Urban Decay Naked. So far I like it more than the Clinique Acne Solutions. But then again it may just be because it’s a new foundation. I’m much better in the hair department and I know when I try a new shampoo or conditioner my hair always feels amazing the first couple of days just because it’s new. I will continue to use it and I will compare it to the other two samples I got over the next couple of days. I’ll definitely let you know which one I like the best.
