Hello all! First, congrats to Valerie C., the confirmed winner of the L’Oreal Youth Code Day Cream! Thanks to all who entered.
Next, I hope you have all been doing well this week! Last Sunday, I had a pretty decent day out with a friend. We headed out shopping and ended up getting a mini-makeovers at the Estee Lauder counter. We sampled (and purchased) quite a few products at Sephora. We made stops at Macy’s, Carsons, and finally ULTA. I think we spent about 6 hours shopping that day! This was actually the first time I ever visited a Sephora store. I’ve been shopping at ULTA for years and years and Sephora is just not as close by. I recently found out from my Twitter friend and YouTuber Sam, that you can request samples of most items at Sephora. I had a couple of things I wanted to purchase and a few things I wanted to sample first so I made a list and off we went.
My purchases from Sephora and the Estee Lauder counter at Carson’s:
My Sephora samples, Nars Tinted Moisturizer, Boscia Black Mask, Boscia Black Cleanser, Laura Mercier Cream Smooth Foundation, Shesiedo Eye Cream:
More samples from Clarins, Estee Lauder, Lancome (from the counters at Carson’s) plus the Lancome lipstick & Visionnaire from ULTA:
I was feeling under the weather from Saturday on and the rest of my week was spent being sick and it took a lot out of me. I didn’t feel like doing much of anything and with 2 kids to take care of that’s what takes priority. No blogging for me. Once I started feeling a bit better, it was time to catch up on all the things around the house that didn’t get done while sick. When I was finally caught up on all the family/at-home stuff I had somewhat of a big day yesterday to plan for.
We had a video guy from a company who produces segments for the news come out to our house and film! The segment will be about preschoolers and cavities and he filmed an interview with me, took some footage of my son brushing his teeth, eating a snack, and more. I thought it was pretty cool and don’t know much yet on when (or if) it will air on our local news. I hope to find out more today!
Anyway, that’s what’s been going on over here…glad to be back :). Please leave me a comment and let me know what you have been up to this week and what you think about my purchases/samples!
