What I Am Loving Right Now




For those of you who don't know, Ulta has an awesome rewards program. Not only do you gain points for every dollar you spend, you get awesome deals and coupons, and a birthday gift every year! I recently had a birthday and was eager to find out what my gift this year would be, I had gotten a free eyeliner last year but waited too long to go redeem it ): So on the morning of my birthday, I checked my email as I do every morning and saw that I had received a free 3.4oz spray and play volumizing hairspray! (by the way, these offers usually expire after a month, make sure you don't forget to redeem it in time!)


3.4oz may not seem like a lot, but for a girl who actually puts the effort in when it comes to her hair maybe, I don't know, once or twice a month, this will last a good amount of time. I set out to go to Ulta birthday gift coupon in hand and another $3.50 off a purchase of 15 dollars or more. I had needed face wash pretty badly since the day of the move and had not gotten around to it until then! I went for my tried and true Cetaphil cleanser and went to go pick up the hairspray. 


I searched probably like 30min before I realized that the product was not on the shelf, just to figure out that they keep it behind the counter. In the bin. That says birthday in really big letters. So a word to the wise, just go straight to the counter when redeeming birthday gifts and freebies offered.


Next stop was Publix, I had a gift card with 8 dollars left on it and decided I would go put it to good use and get myself some mascara. I was going to go for my regular but figured since it was practically "free," I would try something different. Being the anxious decision maker I am, it took me a solid 40min just to pick out a mascara. One does not simply pick one to her liking and head to the cash register, one will read 100000 reviews on all different products. I ended up with a covergirl mascara. I was originally planning on buying more, but after standing there for so long, I was pretty much done.


So how was it?




Sexy Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray-

Uhhhh loved it! I tried this on my first day of my new job. As with any other job you are trying to make a great first impression on your first day. So obvs it had to be a good hair day for me. I sprayed my hair lightly with this and was throughly impressed with how great my hair still looked with this product in it. It looked like I had actual volume to my hair and though it didn't feel stiff, it felt and proved to make my hair stay put all day!



Covergirl Lashblast Volume Mascara-

This mascara is great. After the first layer, it gave my eyes a totally different look. They looked bigger and my lashes looked longer and plentier! It does not flake throughout the day and there was no clumps to be seen even after layering it. I would definitely suggest this to anyone looking to add serious volume to your lashes.


Ahh, the bliss of new products and though it wasn't a huge beauty haul, sometimes it is better to just get the basics!
