Valentine’s Day Deals!

My husband doesn’t usually buy me a present for holidays like V-day, he just tells me to pick something up at the store for myself. ┬áSome women may be offended by the lack of effort, but I’d prefer to get what I want and spend the same amount of money, rather than him coming home with a stuffed teddy bear from CVS. So all of these crazy V-day deals are perfect for people like me!

If you’re looking for a last minute present or just want to spoil yourself, here’s a list of what I’ve found today:

-Bath and Body Works is offering a free Diamond Mist spray ($16 value) with any purchase. You can pick up a little mini lotion or even some soap for a few bucks. All you have to do is go to their Facebook page, click Get Offer then print the email.


Le Tote is offering $15 off their boutique box, which would make it $35 for the first month. Le Tote is a subscription clothing rental service that has lots of cute items! Use code LTVDAY2014 at checkout. (expires 2/16)

-Benefit Cosmetics is giving a free eye and brow kit with any $75 purchase. Use code BEMINE at checkout.



Carson’s has a promo code for an extra 30% any woman’s apparel yellow dot item. The code is PRESDOT2014 and is valid through Monday 2/17.

Any other deals anyone wants to share out there?


Sale Makeup Haul – E.L.F. and Flower Beauty

I read earlier today about Eyes Lip Face (E.L.F.) gift sets being on sale at Target, so I went there as soon as possible before everything was all sold out. E.L.F. is probably my favorite budget beauty brand first off- because it’s cruelty-free and also because the products are always worth the money. My Target had a huge selection left and the kits started at $2.10 going up to $10 for the big set. I went with the smoky eye palette because I love the colors (this one was $2.10, regularly $3.00):


I also found two Sally Hansen glitter polishes. These didn’t have a clearance sticker but were on the end cap with the other sale products. One quick run over to the scanner showed these were only $1.60 each:


I’ve also been loving all these masks that I’ve been getting in my sub boxes, so I picked up a mask for $2.00 by Que Bella. I’ve never heard of this brand, but for the price it can’t be beat:


For all these beauty products, plus a bag of Christmas white chocolate M&Ms, I walked out the door paying less than $10 which made me one happy girl! (And since my husband took over the budget this month, it made him even happier)

Then I headed over to Walmart because I’ve been dying to check out the Flower Beauty products. If you’re not familiar with Flower, it’s the cosmetic line put out by Drew Barrymore. All of the Flower Beauty products are also cruelty-free and come in the cutest containers. I’d already peeped out the website so I kind of had an idea in mind of what I wanted and what to expect price-wise. Nail polishes were $5, lipsticks were around $8 and the foundation was about $10.

I was extremely excited when I found out that there were a bunch of sale products. I ended up with two Flower Beauty $5 eyeshadow palettes (normally $8) and two $3 lipsticks.

I’m really loving the vibrancy of the colors in the first palette.


The lipstick are similar to those colored pencils you had in school, where you take the top color off and put it on the bottom to get to the next color. There are 3 colors in each lipstick, that you can quickly change by removing the top and placing it on the bottom. I’ve only tried one color so far but I love how the color looked on my lips.


There were a few other Flower Beauty products that were on sale, including tinted moisturizer for $5 and mini concealers for $3, but I stopped myself there.

If you go check these sales out, let me know what you end up with!
