Beauty and jewelry deal finds

So I woke up super early one morning and decided to go to Walmart to pick up some groceries...and stopped by the jewelry section.  Lo and Behold they had a whole section of clearance jewelry.  Ahhh clearance my favorite word.  

All of these necklaces and earrings were $1!!! 

I fell in love with these necklaces they are a three in one.  You can wear them all together or separate.  These were a little more $2.  I have already worn these a crazy amount.  

I also stopped by CVS and picked up some makeup items.  I had a couple coupons from the CVS machine and they had some good deals on makeup.  I picked up 2 lippies from Revlon.  I am obsessed with the Revlon Colorburst lip balm/stain in Honey.  I also picked up two stain crayons from Wet N' Wild and two Almay liners for blue eyes.  Pretty sure I picked up all this for less than $12.

Walmart beauty box unboxing fall 2015

I got my Wal-Mart Beauty Box in the mail and thought I would share the inside with y'all:

Aussie Mega hairspray (1.5 oz)

Aveeno Positively Radiant daily mouisturizer (.3 fl oz)

Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in 875 Gladiolus (full size)

ACT Advanced Care Plaque Guard mouthwash (1 fl oz)

Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair Lotion (2 fl oz)

Nivea Extended Moisture Body Lotion (foil packet .14 fl oz)

3D Crest White Brilliance Toothpaste and Finisher (foil packets)

Jennifer Aniston fragrance (foil packet)

L'oreal Paris Revitalift Miricale Blur finishing cream (foil packet)

L'oreal Paris Age Perfect facial oil (foil packet)

As you can see they gave a pretty good amount of products.  Now most of them were foil packets or really small samples but I like the variety.  

These boxes are seasonal and run $5 a box.  So for the products I feel like its a good deal.  I'm not crazy about the lipstick, the color is too dark for me but everything else is good to go!

Hair for days: irresistible me hair extensions review

I was contacted by Irresistable Me a hair extension company to review their products.  100% natural Remy clip-in hair extensions, hair accessories and hair tools.  I have never really been one to be all gung-ho about hair extensions but have heard a lot of people rave about theirs and thought I would give it a go.  

They come in a cute little box and make sure you read the package!! 

The package has two sides. The smaller side is the tester. You can look, feel and check out the color to see what you think.  Don't open the big part until you know you want to keep it.  If you don't like the product based on the sample piece you can send it back, you are stuck with it if you open the whole thing.  

The hair pieces have little combs and grippers that you place in your hair.  I have never used extensions before so I had a little trouble getting them in my hair.  My hair is pretty slick so things tend to fall out (bobby pins, clips, curls, etc) 

I am still learning how to use them but the color is pretty close (which is a hard thing for a redhead).

They are super soft and feel like my real hair.  I am going to have to work on getting them to stay in my hair and styling with them.

Latest deal finds

Another day, another Dirt Cheap haul....this was a good haul day, most everything was 90% off! 

These lamp shades I picked up for $1.40!  They are a burlap material and are perfect for our bedroom. 

You can never have too much tissue paper and for 80 cents each they were perfect to stock up.  

These little banners were too cute to pass up on.  I am stashing them away for any parties in the future.  Oh and they were 40 cents, can't beat it. 

This set was missing one of the labels (set of 2 instead of 3) but for 70 cents they were perfect for dressing up a crate or basket. 

These soap scrubbers were 90% off as well and were less than $1 for both. 

I picked up this workout band set for less than $2 and it was missing the light band but for that price I can deal.  

What deals have you been finding lately?

What I read in October

Alright another month is over and I slacked on my reading yet again...I read 2 books.  

Fame Firstborn Series #1 by Karen Kingsbury: Karen Kingsbury is the epitome of Christian chick lit.  She has soooo many books I can't keep track.  I get the cast offs from my grandma.  This one is in the Firstborn series continuing with the Baxter family.  This one follows D, who is a Hollywood star and he has been given up for adoption by the Baxters themselves.  The story also adds in a little romance with a small town Katie being brought to Hollywood to act alongside D.  The storyline was good and even had some mystery added in with a psycho fan.  If you are looking for a good Christian read check it out.  

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld: This was one of those dystopian books.  It's was an interesting idea in that when you turn 16 you undergo a surgery that makes you beautiful.  Then you go off and live with other beautiful people and just have a beautiful life.  The idea was to make everyone pretty so no one feels ugly or left out, basically everyone feels good. Like all the other dystopian books there is a hidden dark secret to this seemingly good fix.  The main character (I can't remember her name) makes a friend who shows her a different path for her life   

Overall not crazy impressive but decent books for October.
