Tiny Target Haul

For the first time in a long while, I had a pretty low key weekend. Saturday morning I had to be at the Kappa house at 7am so we could initiate our new girls, and since our spring class is typically small, I was outta there by 9am! Since I was already up WAY before I usually am on a Saturday, I met the parents for breakfast and then did a little shopping with Kate. She needed to find a pair of earrings to wear later that night so I of course offered to tag along! On our way home we stopped at Target and I managed to pick up just a couple things.

Umberto Dry Clean Dry Shampoo $8.99
The main reason we went to Target was so that Kate could get some more dry shampoo. She swore up and down by this one, so of course I had to pick up some for myself! The only dry shampoo I've used has been the one from Tresemme, and unfortunately it leaves a gray tint to my hair...NOT what I want as a brunette! I was with here when she was getting ready and when she used this stuff it lemme tell ya IT WORKS! It game alot a volume and made her day 2 hair look MUCH better. Kate is also a fellow brunette and this didn't leave behind any kind of color residue. So I'm really excited to try this out!

e.l.f. Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder $1
I just finished the first one of these I bought, so this was merely a repurchase. For $1, this is a great product! If you like shimmery bronzers, this is a great product that definitely won't break the bank. My only complaint is that the fallout from this product is pretty substantial, but considering this price I don't mind losing some of the product. All I do with this is dust it all over my face to give that all-over glow and I'm out the door!

N.Y.C. Cover Stick around $2
I bought this simply because the Revlon Colorstay concealer I bought a while back was just not working! The Revlon concealer was a spot treatment that contains salicylic acid and really dried out my skin, so I needed to find something quick. I haven't tried this yet and I usually go for liquid concealers rather than stick, but I figured for just under $2 I would give it a shot.

A couple weeks ago Target was running a promotion for the "Bag of Beauty" on their website. All you had to do was give them your address and you were sent this cosmetic bag filled with goodies and coupons!

The makeup bag is by Sonia Kashuk and matches the rest of her line that you can find in stores. Inside there are samples from Nivea, Pantene, Revlon, Neutrogena and Frederick Fekkai along with $25 worth of coupons! It was nice to find this little surprise in my mailbox :) I think it's super smart of Target to do this kind of promoting and giving out coupons to use just at their stores. I also noticed looking at the Sunday ads that a lot of the products there are coupons for are ALSO on sale this week. Hopefully Target will be doing these kinds of promotions in the future!

I know my blogging has been sporadic recently, but school is rough! Whoever said Senior Spring was easy was most certainly NOT a science major! I do have a couple posts I want to write, including updates on Project 10 Pan (yes im still doing this despite my beauty purchases!!) and an update on my school situation. I am must more active on twitter so definitely follow me there for daily *cough*hourly*cough* updates on my life!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!


***All of the products were bought with my money, with the exception of the Target beauty bag, which was sent to me after signing up on their website. I was not sponsored by any of the brands mentioned above***

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Lilly Pulitzer Tote in Kappa Kappa Gamma print
Lilly came out with four sorority prints last year and lucky for me Kappa was one of them, along with Delta Zeta, Tri Delta, and Kappa Delta. My friend has the DZ tote and these things are HUGE! Since I got my new laptop I've had issues because its too big to carry around in my Vineyard Vines or Coastal Traditions tote. So this would be PERFECT, even though this is my last semester in Kappa :(

Viva la Juicy Perfume
I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with this perfume!!! I was at Kohls with my mom and she had a 30% off coupon so I thought it would be a perfect time to pick up a new scent, since perfume NEVER goes on sale! I originally wanted to pick up one of the Ralph Lauren scents, but both Kohls we went to didn't have ANY :( So I sprayed this on and as I continued to walk around and smell it, I quickly fell in love...even my mom loves it! The bottle I picked up is on the smaller size, retailing for $29, but with the coupon and a leftover merchandise credit I had, I only ended up paying $12!! If you like girly scents I definitely recommend giving this one a try!
TOMS Sparkle in Black
When these shoes first came out I didn't get the attraction. But as I see them more and more on campus the more I want a pair!....specifically one of the sparkle pairs! I originally wanted to gold ones but I love the black too! Anybody have a sparkle pair they just love?

I have made some headway in deciding what I'm doing in the next couple months
Over spring break I had some time to think about my plans for the future. If you have been reading for a while or follow me on twitter, you know I have been trying for THREE years now to get into pharmacy school with little success. With it now being the middle of March and I still haven't heard anything from any school, I've had to make some decisions that right now I am content with. I have decided that instead of graduating in August with my Biology degree, I have decided to postpone graduation to December, when I would graduate with my Biology degree with a minor in chemistry. I only have 7 more hours of biology to complete and only need 8 more hours of chemistry for the minor. Ill be taking 1 class and 1 lab each summer session, so in the fall I can finish up the hours for me degree in addition to taking some classes that are prerequisites for schools that I may be applying to in the fall.
SOOO....that is my plan!

What are you loving this Wednesday?
