Black Friday Haul Part 2: Sand Cloud and Pura Vida Bracelets

I know its been long awaited but Part 2 of Black Friday Haul is finally here! I did some online shopping at Sand Cloud and Pura Vida Bracelets and took advantage of the deals I got. Both sites were 50% off EVERYTHING! Here are the things that I got!

We’ll start with Pura Vida Bracelets.

As for bracelets, I got a seafoam braided one, a seafoam with a wave charm, black platinum and then a mental health awareness and a depression awareness bracelets. I cannot wait to keep adding more to my collection. Yes I’d say a lot of the bracelets may look easily DIYable and maybe even a little young, like preteen and teenage young, but I personally still love them and everything the company stands for.


I got a lot of rings, I don’t really remember the exact names so please bare with me. I got quite a few chevron ones and then an opposing triangle, bow and arrow, celestial and a pearl one.


Now for Sand Cloud.

I got three T shirts, first one I got was the wanderlust long sleeve, which is just a nice rainbow tye dye. I think this would have to be my favorite one I got.


The next one I got was a pink acid wash long sleeve tee. I love the color, one of my favorite colors to wear!IMG_1627.JPG

The last one I got was a nice burgundy long sleeve with Christmas colored marine life animals on the back, perfect for Christmas.


The last thing I got from Sand Cloud was this Coral Oasis Blanket, it is huge and just super cozy. I have felt it but haven’t even used it yet, and I already love it.


That completes my haul from Black Friday, I hope you enjoyed. You should definitely check out these amazing companies if you haven’t already. I do have coupon codes so you can save money!

Lush Cosmetics Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask Review

As I briefly touched on in my Black Friday Haul, I’ve never really tried anything from Lush before. Yes I’ve used their bath bombs a couple of times, but never any of their skincare products, or any of their other cosmetics. But I picked up this Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask, that I have been wanting to try for the longest time. Even though I’ve only used it about 4 times, I feel that I have come up with a solid review for this product.

First, I am going talk about the packaging. I’ll start off with the packaging, itself. It’s in a little recycled plastic pot, that just looks nice and pleasing to the eye. On the side, there’s actual instructions on how it is used, while giving a little brief description on the benefits of using the product, not even the product in specific but moreso the ingredients.

I don’t know why I like this, but I truly love this next part about the packaging. There is a sticker on the side of the pot and it gives specific details about this product. It lists the worker that made the product, the date it was made, and then even a date that the product should be used by. You don’t see a whole lot of other brands that takes this step to maintain quality and share this particular information with consumers.

Now for what’s inside the pot. As soon as I opened the pot, I was overcome by such the lovely scent of coffee, perfect for coffee lovers. It almost has the consistency of actual mud but with coffee grounds in it. I’m not entirely sure why this is a mask, because it is meant to be scrubbed into the skin, and the sensation of the coffee grounds for exfoliation.

My skin feels so smooth and refreshed after using this mask. Of all the face masks I have been trying lately, this would have to be my favorite so far.

My only complaint about this product is that it can get messy when washing off the mask. The excess coffee grounds get all over the sink, and sometimes like to hide on your neck.

Even though I have one complaint, I really do like this product, and I was just overall impressed with not only the product itself, the process of how this product was produced. I cannot wait to go back and try even more products and test them to share with you all. Thank you so much for reading!

2017 Black Friday Haul…… Part 1

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving if you celebrate it! I love spending time with my family and then attempting to get Christmas shopping done the next day. And I mean that, attempting, but then somehow it just turns into a shopping spree for myself, I imagine many of you can relate. Anyway I did some shopping and I wanted to share with you what I got. This is just Part 1, I have some online shopping I did as well. I would share what I got for others for Christmas gifts but I didn’t want to risk spoiling it for them so I’m just sharing what I got for myself.

First place I went to was Ulta, and they didn’t have amazing deals but I have been wanting to try more from the brand Makeup Revolution, which they carry there, and so I thought I’d take advantage of the Buy One, Get One 50% off deal.

So first thing I got was this Blurring Primer. I’ve been needing a new primer, and I have heard of “Blurring” but have never tried one myself, so I figured I would try it out and see if it actually works.


I have been in love with holographic stuff in general, and honestly this highlighter looks like its duochromatic if not holographic. It is around the same shade as the blanket I’m using as the background for this picture, so we’ll see if I am even able to wear it.


Something else that caught my eye was this Banana Powder. It really reminds me of the Banana Powder from Ben Nye Cosmetics. I’ve never tried it but I have always wanted to. I truly hate loose powders but I still thought I would give it a chance. I also wanted to try baking, because believe it or not, I have never tried baking.


The last Makeup Revolution product I picked up was the Liquid Highlighter in Champagne. I’m going to be honest, I wasn’t too impressed with the Starlight one I picked up in my last haul, but I still thought I would give this one more chance before officially deciding that I don’t like it.


The last thing I picked up from Ulta were these makeup removing wipes from Formula 10.0.6. My absolutely favorite makeup wipes are the Neutrogena ones, but as I stated in a couple posts back, I’m trying to transition going cruelty free, and I know that Formula 10.0.6 is cruelty free, and I wanted to test them out.


The next store I went to was Lush. I’m going to be honest, I’ve never really been crazy about Lush and their infamous bath bombs. Like yeah, they’re cool and all but I don’t see the big deal. Honestly I feel like I am constantly under stress from wherever it comes from, and if I took more baths, maybe it would be good and relaxing for me. So I picked up two bath bombs, the rocket science one and some sugar bear I think, I honestly can’t remember their names.


The other thing I picked up was this Cup O Coffee Face Mask I have been wanting to try for the longest time. I’m trying to transition into being cruelty free and unfortunately for me, most if not all the products I use aren’t cruelty free. Luckily Lush is and I wanted to try out their products to see if I can find a cruelty free option that works for me.


The next Β place I went to was Victoria’s Secret because what is a Black Friday Haul without Victoria’s Secret? As much as I wanted to get the tote when you spend $75, there honestly just wasn’t much that I wanted that was worth spending money on, so I only picked up two things.

The first thing I picked up were the camping leggings that were on sale.


The next product I picked up really just stood out to me. I’m going to be honest, I have some big breasts and it makes shopping for bras incredibly difficult, especially when it comes to shopping for bathing suits and even clothes I want to wear but don’t want my bra showing. So I saw these lightly lined cups that are sticky, so it’s backless. I figured it would be nice to try these out and to have them on hand just in case.


The next place I went to was Q which is just a smaller and sometimes more affordable version of Forever 21. I most of these on sale, and I thought I would try and upgrade my regular T shirt wardrobe to something a little nicer.

First, I saw this lightly lined bralette. It looks like one I have from Victoria’s Secret but doesn’t break the bank.



Next I got this long sleeve floral dress/shirt. It looks long to be a shirt but a little short to be a dress. But I thought it would look great with a pair of leggings or maybe even a pair of skinny jeans.



The next thing I got was this striped dress. Its going to look great in the summer, but in the meantime, I thought it would look great over a white t shirt, since that 90s trend seems to be making a comeback and with a pair of leggings or tights.


I also picked up a pair of Christmas socks, because you can never have too many pairs of Christmas socks.


The last thing I picked up was this choker set. It comes with a black one and a denim one. I don’t have any chokers, and I just love the way they look.


The last place I went to was Charming Charlie and the only thing I got from here was this light pink velvet baseball cap.


This wraps up my in store shopping Black Friday Haul, and I will post my online one as soon as I get them in the mail. Thank you so much for reading!
