5 In: Walmart & Marshall’s

I have been lightly shopping lately and have been picking up things here and there. These are the latest things that I have picked up. I am pretty proud of all of my purchases. I like to say that I am a frugal shopper and since I discovered Marshall’s, I never want to shop at Sephora again. Will I? Yes, because sometime you just want something and Marshall’s doesn’t always have what you want. I have been making it a habit to go to Marshal’s once a month to make any of my beauty and skin care purchases. The mark down is unbelievable and makes my high end collection that much more affordable. But let me stop rambling and show you the good stuff.

This shower caddy was on clearance at Walmart for just $5. I love having all of my products up and out of the shower now. My shower used to be super cluttered with all of our stuff and now, my dad and my stuff sit in this caddy and Dean’s stuff sits on the shelf in the tub. Everything isn’t all over the corners and edge of the tub and on the floor. It is supper refreshing how clean and organized the shower looks now. I need to get some under the sink storage organizers and possibly a piece of furniture for the bathroom to put towels in. Like the over the toilet kind except I don’t have room where the toilet is (the heater is behind there), so I would put it near the washer/dryer.

This is a boring repurchase, but this is the best toothpaste under $5. This keeps my teeth relatively white. I need to buy the white strips to make them as white as I want them to be, but this toothpaste does a good job at keeping them from getting yellower. If you used this with the strips, I think it would have no problem keeping your teeth as white as you want them. I want a natural white, so I only want my teeth one or two shades whiter than they already are. I love the taste and my teeth have never felt cleaner. It feels like I just came back from the dentist. I love that really clean feeling.

I am a HUGE fan of Kate Spade and Marshall’s has a ton of Kate Spade. I think I might buy a couple of decorate boxes to keep out of season clothes in next once I find coordinating room colors (anything Tiffany blue, gold, silver). I have a Tiffany blue Kate Spade notebook currently and I love it. They had this cute Rose Gold Pearls notebook for $3 and I had to have it for school. I will be taking two classes, so now I have two Kate Spade notebooks for it. I will definitely pick up two more for next semester, so if I see more next month, I will be sure to grab more to prepare. The paper is high quality and looks very classy when you take them with you like I will be taking them to work. I will be writing a post about my college essentials soon enough.

My prized win of all? This Collector’s Edition BareMinerals Deluxe Mineral Veil Finishing Powder for $9.99 worth $58 and originally went for $38. This is a huge powder at 24 grams of product. I think this will take me a whole year to go through and the packaging is to die for. Hopefully, I will be able to pop the sifter and refill. If not, I will reuse it as a holder for something. It is stunning packaging and a collector’s piece. Who would have thought that I would have found this at Marshall’s? AND it was completely sealed and untampered with. The powder has a light salmon color to it, so it color corrects slightly. It really does blur out pores and gives my face that perfected look. Stella always raves about BareMinerals and I have to say, I am impressed so far. I will definitely be buying more BareMinerals if I see any at Marshall’s.

OMG you guys! I had to share these PaperMate InkJoy Gel Pens that I have been wanting so badly for school. They are on sale at Walmart right now. They are currently $8.98 marked down from $15.98. You could practically buy another pack with your savings! I didn’t do that though, I bought two other cute stationary products with my savings instead. You should check out Walmart.com or your nearest Walmart to see if they have any of these. This is my first time buying these pens, so I need to see if I like them enough to buy them again before I go crazy and buy more of them.

That is my little haul to share with all of you. I will be doing a separate in-depth online college essentials post that will cover some of the things I bought here, but mostly new stuff to talk about. Most of the stuff, I didn’t personally had to go out and buy. They were leftovers from my previous college years and failed hobbies. lol. Does anyone else do that? I tried hobbies, because other people liked them but I could never keep up. It just wasn’t my thing. The only hobby that has lasted for me is blogging. Probably because writing is my passion.

With Love,

Bought Recently

I wanted to show you what I have picked up lately. It is not real exciting stuff, but just stuff that I needed to restock on. I promise that I don’t usually buy a ton of stuff. It just seems that way from all of the posts that I have been putting off making of stuff that I have purchased months ago. Like still in their boxes stuff that I haven’t touched, because I am all like I am going to haul that stuff. I don’t feel like I should touch it to remind myself to write the post. LOL. Also, usually it takes me months to put together a post like this, because I don’t buy for myself very often. I just don’t have the money to.

Crest 3D White LUXE Diamond Strong Toothpaste

toothpaste

I needed a new toothpaste and this one is a well known brightener and strengthen the enamel on your teeth. I do notice that my teeth are whiter, but I would need the whitening strips to get a really white smile. I might get the smallest white strips kit, because I just want to boost my smile. This toothpaste is great though and I really enjoy it. I would not actively repurchase this. I only bought it, because Tom’s was out of stock. Crest is not bunny approved, which is why I only bought it when my other option was out of stock. Hopefully, they are in stock next time I need toothpaste.

L’Oreal Colorista in Pink

This is a semi permanent hair color that washes out within a dozen shampoos. I used it on my brassy blonde ends and it looked more burnt red than pink. When I get bored of my grey, I will use it on my non-brassy white blonde hair to give it a proper review.

Alba Botanica Acne Dote Toner

toner

I really enjoy this toner and it is cruelty free. I am going to see what else my Marshall has today on my day off. I am also stopping at Sephora for my birthday gift. I would rebuy this toner for the $5 that I spent on it. I need to see if they have anything with less alcohol in it though. I don’t find this too drying on my oil skin but my skin has been less oily more combination lately.

Thermos Thermocafe

IMG_3583

I needed a good thermos for bringing my coffee to work or the shakes that I make at home. It is also great for holding smoothies as well. I just needed something for when I want to do the extra effort.

Not Your Mother’s Blonde Moment Treatment Shampoo

IMG_3724

So, I already shared with you that I accidentally got the conditioner instead of the shampoo. Now, I finally have the shampoo and I do like it. I use it every time I wash my hair which is once to twice a week. I do my Shimmer Lights treatment once a week where I leave it on for 30 minutes to maintain my non brassy hair. I do like this cruelty free brand and will repurchase this set in the future. I also want to get the leave in spray in this line once I run out of some leave in conditioner that I am already using.

That is it for this little recap haul. As you can see, most of these things I can write little review on them, I have had them for so long. I am using Dean’s nap to my advantage by writing on my blog. I don’t like to take time away from him when he is awake. One of the many reasons why I am so happy he naps in his own bed now and not with me. I love it when he takes a nap with me when I have a migraine. Nothing like a little warm body next to you to make you feel better.

With Love,
