❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

One day I suddenly wanted a long tee with thumbholes. JC Penney have some for really cheap. They come in 10 different colors and designs.

Arizona Long-Sleeve Favorite Thermal ($11.99-13.99)
$7.94 shipped, with SWEETS4U code (exp 10/31)


The color is darker than pictured, but I still like it.
It's thick, so no need to layer. I bought one size bigger than the usual junior size clothes because I don't want it to be too tight-fitting, like modeled.

I just bought another one in this color . (^__^")

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

This just came in the mail today too. I bought this on eBay.

ASOS lace edge long line tunic

Very cute top. The lace-trimmed design is very lovely. It's a bit sheer, just like other white blouses in general, so I wear a cami under it.
The seller said that the top ran small. The top size is one size bigger than my regular ASOS size, so I thought it'd be fine. Well, it fits, except it's a little bit tight on the bust area. Sooo I might re-sell it next spring/summer.

Sephora F&F haul ❤


My Sephora orders arrived today!! ❤


I spent around $124.xx total, after the 20% off FF discount. Ouch!
Luckily, I didn't spend my monthly shopping budget on them at all. I paid them with a gift card and my cashback earnings.
Yay !


I split the order to two, so that I could get more samples.




(price before 20% off)

  1. Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips - $17.50
    • I am currently using the Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. I'm switching to this one because it removes my eye makeup much easier and cleaner. The Naturally Gentle one is good if you have sensitive eyes though. It doesn't sting.

  2. Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette Rollerball - $20
    • Finally I could buy this! I wanted this perfume for awhile, but it's kinda pricey for me. It's a better deal with the 20% off. I bought the rollerball one because I want one that I can put in my purse. For a $16 perfume, it's a pretty generous size. Smells REALLY good!




  3. Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Effet Extension mascara - Extension Black - $28
    • I want to try this out since it got very good reviews, as good as my favorite Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes ($28) mascara.
    • But, I was thinking to return it and get this Givenchy Mascara set instead. Someone told me about that set. It comes with the lip gloss below that I got for free. I wish I knew that.

  4. Givenchy Gloss Interdit Ultra-Shiny Color Plumping Effect - Rose Taboo - FREE (100 pts perk)
    • I picked this deluxe sample after I read PurseBuzz's review.
      I'm more of a lipstick person, but I must say, this lipgloss is REALLY nice! Rose Taboo is a LOVELY natural lips color. It has a brush applicator. It has a nice scent. It's moisturizing. Beautiful shimmers. It feels nice on my lips, smooth application, and it is not overly sticky. It's just totally great!




Samples:
Leslie Blodgett Eau de Parfum Spray
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Green Tea Refreshing Towel
CLEAN Simply Soap Eau de Parfum




(price before 20% off)
  1. Shu Uemura Skin Purifier Cleansing Beauty Oil 5 oz - $32
    • It contains tea-tree extract. I've been using the DHC cleansing oil for a few years. I want to try a different brand. I bought the 1.6 oz (travel size) one a few months ago, tried it out, and I really liked it. Yah, it's more expensive, that's why I waited until the F&F!! I wish I could afford the 15.2 oz ($72 value) one. LOL



  2. Sephora Brand/Halloween Kit - Doll, Fairy, Angel ($65 Value) - $19
    • I bought this for BFF's Xmas present. Good value, everything is full size. It contains: False Eyelashes, Round a Pot in Beach Ball, Glittery Spray in Silver, Slim Eyeliners in Black and White, Luminous Glow.

  3. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin - $17
    • I got a sample from my Beauty.com purchase in the past. It's quite cool. It changes matte eyeshadow to metallic. You can read more about this UDPP here, Comparison: UDPP vs UDPP Sin.

  4. Clinique Lash Building Primer - $13
    • Stocking up! I like this mascara primer. It's cheap, not weighed down my eyelashes. My mascara lasts whole day and it doesn't smudge.

  5. Too Faced Smurfy-Eyed Liquid Eyeliner - Feelin' Smurfy - $8.75 (orig. $17.50)
    • I found it on Sephora sale section. Cute packaging and great quality! It's VERY sparkly/glittery, just like X-mas ornaments kind of glittery !! The liquid is like regular liquid eyeliner, not watery and easy to apply, long lasting and fast drying. After the 20% discount, it's just $7, very good deal. Apply a little, adds a little oomph to your everyday eye makeup. Apply more, it's perfect for a night out or parties. This liquid eyeliner comes in 2 colors opalescent glitter (Feelin's Smurfy) and Blue Glitter (Smurf You). You can read about them more here, a watercolour sky blog.


Samples:
Kenzo KenzoAmour Eau de Parfum
CLEAN Simply Soap Eau de Parfum
DKNY Be Delicious Eau de Parfum

Yeah, all samples are perfumes. I love Sephora perfume samples. They are very generous, I don't need to buy the full size at all. LOL

Selling Old Things...

I just created a new blog, "Bunny's Garage Sale" !! :)

I'm trying to sell random things that I don't use anymore. It's a waste if I just throw them away.

I'll add more stuff when I have the time ! :)

VS Pink Freebies & New Sandals !!

Yay! Got my new sandals that I purchased from 6pm site last week!!

Tsubo - Asha - $23.90 shipped (Orig. $85)

What's Tsubo?
Tsubo is a design-driven company founded by Patrick McNulty and British designer Nick O'Rorke in 1998. O'Rorke spent seven years designing for Reebok, and he brings his expertise to this shoe company, developing new concepts that have, already, become a worldwide brand. (Source).

At first I wasn't sure if I should buy them because of the weird design and I was afraid the beige color wouldn't look good against my skin tone. But, I decided to buy them because I am lack of light-colored sandals (lame excuse!). I have a pair that I wear often, but they cause blisters after 2 hours of walking. My other reason's because the sandals were designed by a man who used to design well-known sport shoes. LOL ^__^" Hmmm ... I guess that's why the sandals have sporty-vibe.
I'm glad that I bought them! They are pretty cute when worn, and very comfortable too!!

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Today was a good day!! OSU students who work as Victoria's Secret Pink representatives held a fundraiser event.
Yah, I knew about it because I work there and I follow them on Facebook. :-)
People who brought donations received freebies and "$1o off of collegiate collection" coupons!!
The freebies were Pink water bottles and Pink coin purses from last year collection.
People who didn't bring any only got a coupon, after they signed up for Pink Nation on the spot.

The freebies my hubby and I received.
I'm going to give a few things to my BFF, a co-worker , and my sister-in-law. Sharing is good. =3

Bath & Body Works


DON'T FORGET, SEPHORA FRIENDS & FAMILY 20% OFF SALE STARTS SOON !!
YAYYYYYYY !!



❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Just came back from Bath & Body Works !
I went there to redeem the "Free Aromatherapy lotion (stress relief or sleep), $5 value" coupon and "20% off of any purchase" coupons.

The "stress relief" one contains eucalyptus and spearmint oil. It smells kinda awful, imo. LOL
The "sleep" one contains lavender oil. It smells funny, but not as awful as the "stress relief" , it's sort of soothing.
I picked the "stress relief" one. I'm planning to bring it to work. I think the smell is going to be useful for me when I'm sleepy/can't concentrate.

I also bought the anti-bacterial gentle foaming soaps with the "20% off of any purchase" coupon. Each costs $3. So with the coupon, total for all is $7.20.



FYI, if you haven't visited a B&BW store for the past few weeks, you should drop by some time. They are currently giving away X-mas catalogs, with 3 discount coupons inside. They are pretty good deal. You only can use one coupon per transaction though.



I think I'll use the first coupon next week. I'll buy some pedicure or manicure treatment, and use the coupon to get one of these Aromatherapy sets for free ($12.50 value). I really like the bag that comes with them. LOL

Plain saturday....

I have been spending the whole time at home today.
It's been raining non-stop outside. The weather makes me feel really lazy.
So, I've been spending whole day watching TV shows on Hulu. There're SO MANY good TV shows these days, I can't keep up !! Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy, Flash Forward, Heroes, Lie To Me, Fringe, Monk, House, Supernatural, Desperate Housewives, Two and A Half Men, Bing Bang Theory, Cougar Town, Eastwick.... too many shows, too little time !!
Then during dinner time, my hubby and I just finished watching "Ghost of Girlfriends Past, " on DVD. It's really entertaining, sweet, and funny.

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

So! Last thursday, when I was really really tired of working, I took my break and went to a bookstore. Over there, I saw these SUPER cute collectible Japanese dolls.

They are called KimmiDoll, you can find more info on KimmiDoll site.

They come in 3 sizes.
The keychain costs $7.95 (bottom row)
The big one (middle) cost $16.95. I forgot how much for the top row one was.

*click picture to zoom in*



They are all SO cute! I wish I could collect them all, but they are quite pricey LOL. Each of the dolls has different hair, face, and kimono designs and each doll has different names and meanings. I hope the bookstore will carry more of this KimmiDoll stuff.

I emailed the picture above to my hubby. He then called me back and asked me what they were and asking me how much they cost. I then told him that I bought the keychain kind. :)







Back at work, hubby called and told me that he's currently at the bookstore, checking out the dolls. LOL
He then bought me the big doll.





I'll probably come back and buy more keychains and giving them away as gifts. haha. XD

New Ride, VS Pink Private Shopping Night, This Week Haul, etc etc.

Soooo last Sunday hubby and I bought a new ride !! We traded our 2000 Honda Accord SE with a 2009 Mazda CX9 - Grand Touring. (^__^)






The speedometer has the "Superman" color theme. LOL




❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

And then, after spending 3.5 hours at the dealership (negotiating, signing documents, etc etc. Gosh what a long time!), we went to the mall so that I could attend the Victoria's Secret Pink Private Shopping Night.

It started at 6:30 pm, but people already started lining up at 6 pm. Each person got a ruffle ticket for limited edition panties and $25 gift cards giveaway. The event at my store wasn't that great compared to the stories I read on forums. Someone said the store served water, candies, and yummy cinnamons. My store only had a DJ.

The really cool thing about the event was that all shoppers got 10% off their entire purchase, $30 off of denim, all pink organic items were $5 along with other beauty deals, a free lotion sample (the Pink Organic one) and a free tote bag.



I was disappointed about the limited edition panties giveaway. Their advertisement says, "100 limited edition panties sweepstakes." I thought they would give away one pair per person, but they actually gave away 5 pairs at a time. So the chance of winning one was really slim.
A lucky Soompi member posted a picture of the panties. O well, on the bright side, it's not the kind of panties I would wear anyway. LOL



I didn't buy much stuff, since I don't like Pink line very much. Too cutesy. Also, 10% off of the retail price is not really a good deal. I'll just wait for the semi annual sale. The jeans were pretty good deal though. They cost $28 after the $30 discount... yah, don't need any. LOL

I bought lollipops ($1.50 each) and the limited edition tee ($5) for $7.20 total. Whoopie. The tote and the Pink lotion are free.



❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Last saturday, I received my silverjewelryclub.com order in the mail. The site sells good quality sterling silver jewelry for very cheap, $6.99/pair, they don't turn black/rusty. But, the choices are very limited, they only show 6 pairs at a time randomly, and you only have 15 minutes to decide whether you want to buy them or not. Confused? Just check out the site, silverjewelryclub.com. ;-)



❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

On Saturday, I also went to Kohl's, the store was having big sale, almost everything was 50-80% off. Didn't buy any clothes, couldn't find anything I like there. I bought some bath towels and two pairs of sterling silver hoop earrings. The big pair is $17.99 and the small pair is $11.99. Pretty good deal for sterling silver.



❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Then yesterday, I went to Sally Beauty Supply. Hubby bought a temporary highlight spray in orange color. He wants to use it for Halloween. So silly!

I bought a Lottabody setting lotion. It's a concentrated "hair spray". You have to dilute it with water and put it in a spray container.

Description from Sally site:
Lotta Body Setting Lotion creates firm hold that is easy to comb. Fast drying to create easy waves and curls. Curl are well defined and full of body. Hair is shiny and remembers the set longer. Quick drying and non-flaking.




❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Yesterday, I received OPI Nail Treatment Envy Original Nail Strengthener in the mail. I read many good reviews about it on Drugstore.com and makeupalley.com. The Sephora OPI nail strengthener that I've been using doesn't work anymore. This always happens to me, in the beginning the product works well, and then after awhile my nails are "immune" to the product, so I have to try a different one. (.___.)



Original price is $15.50. I almost bought it on drugstore.com, and then I found out it's cheaper on eBay. A seller was selling it for around $12 shipped.
I bought it for $2.36 shipped, after I redeemed my eBay bucks. :)
I also got an instant 8% cashback from Bing and 2% pending cashback from eBates. Sweet!

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

About 2 weeks ago, Dillards had 40% off sale. I wasn't planning to buy anything because the sale wasn't that great. But, I ended up buying a pair of sandals. Agh! ^^"

Donald J. Pliner "Goldy"


Retail price $275. On sale for $165. I bought them for $107.95 shipped.
I was suckered by the big discount and the solid 5 stars reviews on Zappos.com. LOL
They are surprisingly very very light! Eventhough they are high heels, they are comfortable and easy to walk in them.
Happy!!
I rarely buy shoes that cost more than $50. My whole life, only a handful of times I bought $100+ shoes. They are all great shoes, except one pair, no more Aldo shoes for me! They hurt so much!

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

At last, today I picked up my Drugstore.com package at the UPS store.



(2) Clairol Nice'n EasyColorSeal Weekly Conditioning Gloss - $4.99 for both.
It comes with the Nice 'n Easy hair dyes. The company sells it separately too. Love this product! I use it once a week. It keeps my color-treated hair shiny and healthy. I couldn't find this product in stores, so I bought 2 of them, stocking up.
You can read review on Walgreens site here.

Burt's BeesNatural Acne Solutions Targeted Spot Treatment - $9.99
I got the sample from Burt's Bees awhile ago. It works great! It cures my zits fast and it doesn't cause redness and dry patches.

Foot PetalsTip Toes, Buttercup - $6.95
Ball-of-foot cushions, never have enough of these !

ARCONA Cranberry Firming Gel, Firm AM/PM, GWP ($12 value)
