The Body Shop Haul

Not too long ago, The Body Shop was having 50% off their entire site along with free shipping! Never one to miss a deal, my mom and I spend about $105. Which is an excellent deal considering we got over $200 worth of stuff. 
I got a cream body wash, 2 body lotions, a makeup cleansing oil, Vitamin C face scrub, Moringa dry body oil and a face srubby pad (not shown)
So far, I loved everything I got except for the cream shower wash. It has almost no lather which I know is the norm for products like that, but it makes me feel like im not thoroughly washing myself so I end up using a ton of body wash to get the job done. I definitely won't repurchase that. The Moringia body oil smells amazing and can be used on face, hair and body. I haven't tried it on my hair yet, but I 've put it on my face several times and haven't had an issue with breaking out. It's very light and absorbs quickly so it doesn't feel greasy. 

The star of the show is definitely the makeup cleansing oil and it deserves it's own post. I will repurchase it as long as they make it. I will do a full review on it in my next post. 

What are your favorite products from The Body Shop? Did you take advantage of their 50% off sale?

Good Bye 2013, Hello 2014 :)

I hope everyone had a fabulous NYE! This year, as we always do, we got some friends together and headed down to Metro. It was a cold rainy night so we weren't able to carry out our original plans of watching the fireworks on the river and then going downtown, Metro ended up being a good plan B. Jason and I actually MADE money going there instead of spending it. More on that below haha

Here's a pic of what I wore. The cropped top and skirt were from F21

 My girls, Alyssa and Ashley
 Every NYE they have $1000 balloon drop. All this time I thought that meant that there was a 1 - $1000 ticket in one of the balloons. Turns out, it was broken into smaller amounts and the balloons are spread out over 3 rooms. The picture bellow was right when the clock struck 12, balloons and confetti quickly followed. 
 My first year to find one of the vouchers, which of course had me go on a wild goose chase to find more! I found 3 in all totaling $150. Jason, not to be out done, went looking for some too and found 2 totaling $100. One of the guys we were with found one for $100. I wonder what the highest denomination ticket they had...
 RumChatta shots, these are seriously the best! It tastes like sweet milk with cinnamon. 

How did you celebrate bringing in the New Year?

Christmas Goodies

Hi loves! I hope everyone's Christmas and NYE treated you right, I just wanted to share a few of my favorite things that I got for Christmas in this super late post. 

I've been obsessed with the show Shark Tank for quite some time now, so when I saw they had put out a book, I told Jason how I "had to have it!" This was about a month or so before Christmas too, I was so surprised when he had remembered and got it for me for xmas.  He also got me a Michael's GC and hair stuff. 

 I love these Joico products. If you have thick curly hair and you straighten it, I would highly recommend these. If you can only get one, I would go with the flat iron spray. It makes a world of difference and my hair stays smoother and straighter for longer. 
I got a Samsung Tab 3 tablet and case from my Mother in law. I was so excited to get this because I've been wanting one for forever, I have a Samsung galaxy phone so this tablet easily syncs with my phone once I sign into my Google acct. It's the coolest thing ever and the battery on this thing really lasts a long time. I went 3 days without having to charge it and I was on it for long periods of time. 

What was your favorite thing you received for Christmas?
