I had a few things in mind before going, but I picked up a few extra things (thank you Friday payday!)
I was all excited to hit 500-point perk on my VIB card, however I was not interested in what they had to offer for gifts, so I decided to hold my points until next time.
I had to pick up my favorite makeup setting spray-Urban Decay "All Nighter". I also had heard great things about Sephora's Express Cleansing Wipes. They were a little pricey, but I'll have to see if they are worth the money. Then my splurge of the purchase-Marc Jacobs Lip Lock in Makeout. This is a great moisture balm for the winter and it also has SPF 18. I love the way it feels and it will be great for the cold winters of Wisconsin.
Next stop-Bath & Body Works
I wanted to pick up a few candles. Chose the mason jar ones, since they were on sale. 2 for $15 They currently have great winter scents and even though I didn't like most of them (too sweet) I found two that I absolutely loved! Tis the Season and Sparking Icicles (my fav) are the best. They have such cute packaging and lids-love the skates! While close to the checkout I also came across another perfect scent.-Mahogany Teakwood. I love the manly scent of this. It makes my bedroom smell soooo good. :)
I always hear about people getting major deals here, so I had to check it out for myself. I have never really looked too hard at this store, but they have really picked up their image and the store at my local mall was very clean-minus the dressing rooms :( I saw the Joe Fresh "shop" right away. After picking up and putting back many sweater, due to poorly made materials, I found a pretty cool t-shirt that I could wear under sweaters (bummed though when I got home and notice that the Sales Associate put a hole in it when she took the security tag off-oh well it was only $10-not going to fuss with taking it back.)
I also found a couple of sweaters by A.NA. Love the gray one-just a cozy sweater for winter-reminds me of the sweaters at Brandy Melville that all the beauty gurus love!
Overall, this was a pretty successful shopping trip. I got my "therapy" for the week ;)
