Productive, Low-key Weekend and Sephora Haul

It's Monday but I get a free pastry from Starbucks today, so I'm that much more excited. Oh, and there's a Holiday with two days off this week so, there's that, too.

I know I kind of disappeared last week and I have way too many things to post but sometimes I just can't do everything and I'm okay with that, finally. So today I'm going to tell you all about my weekend and then at the end I'll share what I bought at the Sephora VIB Haul!!


Friday night I got home and after my sister and I ate out the night before, at the mall where we also saw the cute Santa mail display at Macy's. I try not to go to the mall around Christmas so I haven't ever seen this before!!

So we had tacos with our parents, watched an episode of NCIS and then jammed out in the car on the way back home. We got ticket to see The Dixie Chicks next August and are so excited!!

While we were watching Chicago PD on Hulu, I tried out the gold face mask and either I have a small face or my mask was stretched.

I had really creepy eyes that were like bugged out, I mean wasn't there a scary movie with someone that wore other peoples faces? I've obviously never seen it.


Saturday morning I slept in super late for me...10:00 am. I tried to be quiet while I ate breakfast and did some other things so as not to wake my sleeping sister. She was super thrilled I let her sleep so late and then I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning and organizing my place. Shopping online is all fun and games until you have to dispose of the boxes, right?

Saturday evening I got to hang with S and her brother where my sister works. I love having her work at a kind of tourist place because it has a great atmosphere, is right on the water and really good food!! Sadly it was super dark so no pictures were taken.


I went over to my parents after church and helped get the Christmas stuff down. We didn't go through anything, and then after watching a recorded episode of NCIS made fridge oats for breakfast this week. This is a FitGirl recipe that we continue to use because it tastes great and is make ahead awesomeness.

I filled up my car before the prices go up for the Holiday and got my car washed. I can't remember the last time I washed my car and since it's supposed to be cold tomorrow morning I thought I would do it before the cold front comes in.

Boomer was present at my parents and my mom said he wasn't all about picture taking the night before with my brother. He loves the camera so I find that hard to believe.

Sephora Haul

Remember how I said I purchased the Flash shipping for $10 because there was no way I was going to become VIB Rouge??! Well, apparently I didn't realize how much I spent between my sister and I because really that has a lot to do with spending so much money this year. I would get her things as gifts or she would pay me back, I also bought a couple of bigger items this year including a Clarisonic and the Naked Vault that we split.

Three online orders and one trip to the mall since ordering the Living Proof dry shampoo would result in a ground shipment, lol. This also includes two other things from a previous purchase that I hadn't talked about yet.

1. D&G 3 L'Imperatrice perfume
2. Tarte Primer
3. $75 Sephora Favorites and I haven't tried anything except the Beauty Blender which I was going to order another one anyway!
4. Urban Decay Vault II (previously purchased)
5. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (previously purchased)
6. Supergoop Hand Cream
7. Sephora Eye Makeup Remover
8. Naked On the Run palette
9. Living Proof Dry Shampoo

1. $58 Perfume Sampler with cute little bottles, perfect for gift giving and then I get to pick my favorite scent of the lot and get a full size.
2. Drybar Lemon Drop Detangler because my brushes were getting sad and my blow dryer happens to have bright yellow so it looks awesome in my bathroom!

Not pictured came in after I did my photoshoot and video.

1. $3 Hair ties. These are my favorite and I thought would make good gifts, too.
2. Tarte 12 Hour foundation is my sisters favorite right now.

I go into more detail and some blabbering in my Youtube video :)

How was your weekend?!

Linking up for weekending with B Loved Boston!


  1. Ok that's what I meant about face masks just being weird...they are a little scary! So many great things you got from Sephora - the on the run palette is my favorite! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Haha that gold mask picture is cracking me up! I love the fragrance sampler from's always one of my favorite gifts to give, and the recipients always love it!

  3. Looks like you scored big during the Sephora sale! That gold mask is definitely kinda creepy! I've never tried one before but I can imagine my eyes would look the same if I took a pic! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  4. Nice haul! I bought a freaking comb and cologne for MFD for the VIB sale. Whomp whomp.

  5. Hahaha that gold mask does look freaky. Yay for Chicago PD!!! Did you start Chicago Med this week??? Love all your stuff. I am going to have to come back and watch the video. That fragrance sampler is always such a great idea every year!

  6. Yes, silance of the lambs! When I did the mask I wanlked around saying "Hello, Clarice", super creepy. I totally keep my shopping boxes so I can mail out my Christmas presents to other people. :) You had an awesome haul, the favorites is the best one.

  7. Awesome Sephora haul! You're going to LOVE the DryBar brush <3
