Sephora genius

The first time the F&F discount rolled around, I stayed on track and did not shop.  Well, I didn't have as much luck the second time around.  I decided I'd use the discount to purchase Nathan's moisturizer, which is now under the Christmas tree, a gift for my sister, and the nice Dirty Santa gift for this year.  The naughty gift will be an assortment of soaps we won last year.  We are sound environmentalists and recycle.  I knew that would impress y'all. 

The first time I placed an order, I totally forgot to use the coupon code.  It took a few minutes after submitting the order to dawn on me but it totally worked out.  For starters, on the first order I used a code to get a clutch with samples.  The clutches they give out never impress me but I do love to dabble in samples, I was also due for my skin care challenge reward.  Once I realized I didn't use the discount code, I placed a duplicate order and this time I was due for my 500 point gift.  So my stupidity turned into sheer genius.  I ended up with 6 samples, the clutch full of samples, a 500-point gift, skin care challenge reward and the items discounted.  The more expensive set will be returned tomorrow.  Which is perfect because the JCPennys Sephora in Cool Springs called today and I will be able to pick up the highly sought after Naked Palette by Urban Decay.

Nice Dirty Santa gift- Philosophy gift set- I'd be happy if I walked away with this one!  :)
Samples galore!

500 point gift & skin care reward:

It's rather funny that I'm a VIB at Sephora considering I rarely take the time to apply makeup... if you can't tell by the pictures I post of myself.

Cardigan - BR
Top - Ya-da (bought at Nordstrom)
Leggings - Target
Boots - Nine West

I wore these boots the night of the accident and you can still see where they got scratched up from being laid on the pavement.  When I arrived at the ER the lady asked if she could cut off my clothes.  I said yes but to not cut the boots.  I will always have priorities.  :-)  I've been asking Nathan to operate on these beauties for awhile now to no avail.  But I still wear them!  No shame, folks.  No Shame.

Hope your week is going well!



  1. Oh I love skincare challenge rewards! Sephore F&F gets me every time, I loaded up on the last one. It's so funny you mentioned ER clothes cutting, I literally cringed last night seeing a gorgeous DVF wrap dress being cut off a young woman. Of course I'm happy she's stable and recovering but goodness, it's a shame we couldn't save the dress! Haha

    Come by and enter my giveaway for some beautiful jewelry if you like!

  2. I know you want those scuffs fixed but when I look at them I think about the scariest night of my life and how proud I am of how hard you have worked at your recovery. They may not be pretty but wear those scuff as a badge of honor!
