Recent Random Purchases

I will continue with what I got for Christmas later. I wanted to share a few things that I picked up lately that are not holiday related in any shape or form. I just needed a few things throughout the month of November and December and just never got a chance to share. I know there has been a lot of holiday posts, Dean updates, and the like, so I thought that this would be a nice break. I plan on having some reviews go up this month too, so you can look forward to that if you enjoy reviews. I’ve gotten a bit behind and have a huge basket of products to review. I’ve been so busy with cleaning the house that reviews went on the back burner. I’m hoping to post at least 10 reviews this month.

Elf Tone Correcting Powder in Cool

I decided to buy this after Liv from Livloveshermakeup on Youtube recommended it and said that it was her favorite powder for setting in her foundation. I haven’t used it enough yet to say if I like it or not. I just finished up my last loose powder. I only have this and the glimmery Hourglass powder left for my face. Most of the time, I want a matte appearance. I’m sure I’ll form an opinion by the time I hit pan on this powder. I really love the Hourglass powder too, but I like to use it 1x when I want that type of look.

pens

PaperMate Profile Ballpoint Pens

I needed more pens for my course work and I like the cushy pads on these. I will always choose PaperMate InkJoy as my first choice though. Unfortunately, Walmart was all out of the InkJoy,  so I settled for these. I’m not a fan of how thick the ballpoint is and I cannot wait until I need more pens again to get my favorite. If you haven’t tried them, I highly recommend them. I’m itching to try the Gel Pens megapack, but it’s expensive. Once I start SNHU, I will treat myself to a pack.

notebook

Plain Old $1 Notebook

I needed another notebook for my course. The first notebook held the first 5 chapters. I had some Chapter 5 overflow into this new book, but most of it was on the first one. I take a lot of notes too. This will be enough to finish the last two chapters of the book and the exam notes to study from. I plan on taking the test in February probably near Valentine’s Day. I usually plan the actual test date two weeks out from when I finish the last chapter. Two weeks of intense studying has been good for me. So, near the end of Chapter 7, I’ll schedule it at the test center.

soap

Dial Paradise Limeade Hand Soap

I love this scent so much. It smells like a Raspberry Lime Rickey from my childhood. I need to pick another of the oil infused hand soap. My hands are so red and cracked. They need some tlc. I am looking forward to picking that up this weekend. I’m almost done with this one. I feel like the oil one really does moisturize better, but was too heavy during the summer when I first purchased it.

toy

Playhut Plus Adventure Play Tunnel

I had to share Dean’s favorite Christmas toy. I know I said this was holiday free, but I lied. I had to share his favorite thing to play with. He loves crawling in his tunnel and hanging out in there. He plays hide and seek and tries to walk into it, but he’s too tall to do that. He’s such a sweet, good boy. I love watching him play and he brings me so much joy. I can’t imagine my life without him.

With Love,

Stuff I Bought Lately

I have been buying Christmas presents and a few things for myself lately. I thought that I would share what I have bought for Dean so far for Christmas. I have plans for his birthday. His birthday present is really pricey, so I’m waiting until sometime next year to buy it for him. He will love it though! I’m hoping I can save up the $80 that this present costs over the first two months of the new year. I usually like to celebrate his birthday again the next year. I get him a cake and a card for his birthday, but he doesn’t get his present until the next year and I do the cake again.

Spark Fire Truck

toy

I bought this for Dean to learn how to roll a truck on the floor. It is a nice big size, so he can really handle it. It is also too big to go in his mouth. He enjoys playing with it and it is fun to sit with him on the floor and try to get him to use the truck the “correct” way. He still prefers to kick it across the floor though.

Crayola Color Bath Dropz

toys

I love surprising Dean with different colored baths, when I have the time to let him play in the tub for 10 to 20 minutes. He’s a shower boy, but he loves his tub play time. His face lights up when he sees the colored water. He hasn’t tried to drink the color water, but he tries to “catch” it in his hands. The color drops leaves the bath water really moisturizing, which makes you a slippery tube. Dean likes to “walk” in the tub, so he was slipping around a bit. I’m going to try a different brand when these are done.

cup

I’m trying all different cups to try to get Dean off of the bottle. So far, he just drips this one all over himself. It isn’t going to waste though. I’m sure he will love to drink out of this when he gets older. It just gathers dust right now.

cup

Another one that Dean likes to use as a squirt gun. Again, he will appreciate it when he gets older. He uses his 360 cup for everything BUT milk. He refuses to drink milk out of anything but a bottle. This will gather dust as well, but I bet this will be his favorite water bottle in a year or two.

Dial Seasonal Collection Paradise Limeade Hand Soap

soap

I bought another hand soap and this one smells SO GOOD! It smells like a raspberry lime Rickey. I am enjoying the fruity tart scent. It makes washing my hands enjoyable. I cannot wait to buy another seasonal scent. I didn’t enjoy the pine scented one, but maybe they have something with apple, pumpkin, or cinnamon.

These are the stuff that I have bought lately. I’m waiting to have enough presents for Dean to make a post. So far, I have gotten him three things. I want to get him another two or three things for Christmas and then, I will post what I got him here. I’m still trying to find him toys that are engaging enough for him, but also easy for his autistic brain to comprehend. Simple toys are the way to go with him. I’m hoping to find a few more things that he doesn’t already have. I’m also wiping up a couple of toys to donate that he has grown out of like his walking zebra and the little activity table. It will make room for all of his new toys coming in.

With Love,

November Empties

Hey guys! Another month gone and Christmas and Dean’s birthday are right around the corner. I had quite a few empties this month, so I was very impressed. I have a ton of reviews to write now in my spare time. I’ve been building the furniture I bought on Black Friday this weekend and I’ll be able to show them soon. I just want to buy some super glue to glue back some broken pieces on my nick knacks so they look good in the pictures that I’ll be taking. I’ll be having two VS hauls coming up soon. So, stay tuned!

I finished off quite a few minis, but also some full sizes as well. I’m very proud of what I have been able to accomplish. I am looking forward to seeing what I can finish off before it is time for my January inventory to start off the new year with. I will be busy inventorying my whole collection and making plans for my 2018 year project pan where I want to use up 250 beauty related items next year. There will  be plenty of fun posts in the new year. I’m happy that I’m only doing one project next year. Simplified.

October Empties

Another month, another empties post. I went through surprising a lot this month. I wasn’t expecting to use up so much, but it seems like a lot of my products are on their last legs. I expect November and December to be heavy months as well. I am grateful that I never lost power in the storm that terrorized New England this week and I pray for the lives lost in the terrorist attack in New York City. That city has gone through way too much. My car was damaged in the storm, but at least, no one got hurt. I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I’ll be outside playing with my son today.

I am super impressed with what I was able to move out this month. I’m running low on product reviews, so I might disappear during the week with no new posts once in a while. On those weeks, I will be writing product reviews for my blog. I like to hand write them first before typing them up on my blog. Next week will probably be an empty week. I’m going to try to write as many reviews as I can. Maybe I can empty out my review basket. I’m hoping to write ten reviews, because lets face it, there are like 50 products in my review basket right now. lol. If I do 5 reviews a day this weekend, I’ll be happy.

With Love,

Dial It Up

For Dial Seasonal Collection Hand Soap with Moisturizer in Iced Berries

soap

This was a limited edition Dial hand soap and I loved it. I loved how it moisturizes my hands and the sweet, light berry scent. I would buy this again for the scent alone. I like that this soap doesn’t have alcohol in it. There really isn’t anymore that I can say about it, except that I will continue to repurchase Dial soap in the many scents that they offer. I really like the formula and scent of their liquid soaps. I have yet to try the foaming hand soap, but I really want to try it now.

With Love,
