I’m a woman that loves beauty products. I feel like I’m always trying to discover new things to do with my hair and fun new ways to do my make-up. It’s great to have a store that can back this up and I have found that with Ulta. I never heard of Ulta until a store opened in my hometown. I was walking around the mall and decided to stop in when I saw that they were having a sale (what can I say, I’m a sucker for sales and saving money!). I’m really glad I did because little did I know, I discovered my new favorite store.
Ulta has a fantastic line of hair and beauty products and they carry everything from drugstore items that are more inexpensive to higher end salon and department store items that are more expensive. I use a variety of products so I’m glad it’s all in one spot.
Right now, you can get $3.50 off of a purchase of $10. If you shop online, just enter the code 208994 at the check-out and the discount will be applied to your shopping cart. If you shop in store, then print off the coupon online or ask for a copy in the store (they usually have extras). Make sure you take advantage of their offer for free shipping when you spend over $50 online and enjoy the free samples they send with every online purchase!
I went shopping the other day (I know, what a shock) and found some great things at Old Navy! I love this store because they have super cute clothes that aren’t expensive. It fits my style because their clothes aren’t elaborate and super detailed but are more simple yet trendy. I also like that I can go to this one store and get clothes for the entire family. They carry men’s, women’s, kid’s, and baby clothes.
I noticed when I was in there that the winter styles and clothes were out of sight and all of the new spring clothes were out to buy. I loved the maxi dresses and sundresses and picked up a few! If you don’t have an Old Navy nearby, I recommend going online and checking out their selection. You’ll be glad you did!
Springtime is a great time for get-togethers, grill-outs, and just getting out and enjoying the weather in general. I found this recipe for fruit salsa with baked cinnamon chips that I can’t wait to try! Follow the link to be connected to the blog posting, or check it out below:
for the fruit salsa:
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced
8 oz raspberries
1 (16 oz) carton of strawberries, diced
2 tbsp white sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry; would only use 2 tbsp next time)
for the cinnamon chips:
10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray
1 cup white sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar, and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes while the oven preheats to 350 degrees.
2. Coat one side of each flour tortilla with melted butter or butter flavored cooking spray. Sprinkle tortillas with desired amount of cinnamon sugar, cut into wedges, and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Spray again with cooking spray (not necessary if using melted butter).
3. Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture. This salsa can also be served with cinnamon graham crackers or cinnamon pita chips. Best when made and eaten the same day otherwise the fruit gives off so too much juice and it gets runny.
I’m been obsessing over daily deal websites lately. I’m not opposed to going to the sites that you need an e-mail to sign up for. I created a separate e-mail account just for sites like this so that my regular inbox doesn’t get flooded with advertisements.
I love Zulily because they have daily deals for moms, babies, and kids. I found this awesome playground there a couple of days ago and I love it! They have toys, clothes, shoes, maternity items and so so much more.
Sign up for Zulily today and have access to great, unique products and deals. I love this and I think you will, too. If you invite friends to the site, you can save money if they place an order. When their items ship you will get $15 credited to your account to use!
I love it when people register for their wedding. It takes a lot of the “guess work” out of trying to pick out gifts for them that they may or may not like, especially when it comes to items for the home. If a couple doesn’t register, I usually give them the gift of money because I never know what they have and don’t have for things.
There are so many different places that you can register for a wedding. A lot of it depends on your physical location, although a lot of stores make creating and buying from an online registry super easy!
I love the selection of home goods at Macy’s and their stores are pretty widespread and popular. Registration is easy and fun and their products are top notch!
