Cozy September

Good morning, happy Monday! What a better way to welcome September than with a Q&A all about being COZY. Thanks to The Blended Blog for the questions as always!


Slippers: Yes or No?

Yesss! I've even had the open toe, flip flop kind due to the mostly warm weather in Florida.

What is your favorite blanket?

I have a zebra snuggie knockoff, so soft!

Thin or thick pillow?

I have a contoured pillow, but between these two - thick.

Favorite warm beverage?

I love rich hot chocolate, not that packet stuff but also a good mocha with coffee in it!

Robe: Yes or No?

Ummm, sometimes yes. I have 3 of them but hardly wear them.

Favorite comfort snack food(s)?

Chips and dip!

Movies or TV series binge?

TV Series Binge

Actual PJ's or leggings?

PJ's

Cozy up on the couch or a chair?

I prefer the couch.

Hoodie, t-shirt or sweater?

It's usually a little too hot for hoodies, so I don't have any at the moment. It's currently all about the light weight sweaters.

Now it's YOUR turn, leave me your thoughts in the comments below!

2018 Sephora Appreciation Sale - What I Bought So Far


It's the morning most people get to place their 15% off Sephora orders or head to the stores to partake in the Sephora Sale. Instead of doing a what's on my list, because we all know that changes I thought I'd share with you the order I placed this morning around 3:20. I initially set my alarm and then decided nothing was limited edition enough to sell out and I'd be disappointed, but when the dog had a rough night I was already up and restless.

These are affiliate links and I make a small amount of commission off them at no extra cost to you, thank you if you choose to use them.

L'Occitane Mini Hand Cream - This is for my mom. She's almost out and we really haven't found a good dupe, so if you have a fav hand cream with Shea leave it in the comments below. Also, I initially purchased a set of these during one of the last sales and returned them because they only want good reviews, so purchasing this hurt my heart a little.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette - This was rec'd by several of the Youtubers I watch and a in real life friend swears by the ABH palettes. I thought this would be a good every day palette to start with. Have you tried any of the ABH palettes? I'm also on the hunt for a good gold shadow, either in a palette or single for my sister for Christmas. Have a fav? Leave it in the comments below!!

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask - This has been on my wish list for a while, but the Laneige one took first dibs. I love that one, but I also see people recommend this so I'm interested to se if one is truly better than the other or if it's a Friends vs. Seinfeld scenario. I also love that this comes in colors to wear during the day, which I do with the Laneige one, it gives a nice healthy glow to the lips.

Stila Glitter and Glow Eye Mini Set - This is the one gold thing I got my sister so far, hopefully she's not reading this, lol! I don't think she does. It gets pretty good reviews and I love that it's an affordable set.


Sephora Collection Cream Blush in Crazed and Confused - This was a rec from Thataylaa during her cheapest at Sephora video and when I'm doing no makeup makeup look, I love a cream blush.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm Travel Size - I wanted to try this out because I'm not loving the cleansing oils and this is supposed to also be gentle on the skin and take everything off, crossing my fingers!

Tatcha Smooth Poreless Obento Box - Everybody is talking about the Silk Canvas Primer and that has been in my cart/wish list for weeks BUT when I saw this with a full size Water Cream and only a little bit more $ to get travel sizes of the Primer and a Cleanser I thought it was a good way to try them out. I've had the Rice Powder a couple times and thought it was very gentle, so I have high hopes for the rest of this brand. Have you tried any of the Tatcha brand?


Sephora volume Mascara in Teal - I used to wear the Maybelline blue mascara when I was a high school cheerleader and then I ended up with the Too Faced Nikkie Tutorials purple mascara and loved it, it wasn't too over the top. The L'Oreal Mauve or Maroon they've been advertising is on my list next time I go to Walmart. I think I'm also going to pick up the Maybelline blue and I've been told they also have a purple. Colored mascara everywhere!!

I spent a little under $200 with my 15% discount which was my budget for this sale and I earned $5 with eBates so make sure to use the ebates link when you mnake your purchase, they're giving 3% cashback right now for Sephora. When I told my mom I thought my total was high, she guessed over a grand, so I thought $200 wasn't too bad with a couple of expensive products, lol. (referral link)

Tell me, what's on your list or did you already make your purchase?
