I Live to Shine


Midweek shopping

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

We went to Old Navy last night for its special "extra 50% off all clearance items" promotion. It was a 2-day thing, and I wanted to be there right on the first day, so I skipped gym for it. Bad, I know :-) Another reason was that I got a 25% off coupon of Old Navy Weekly, so why not?

The women's clearance section was sad, I couldn't pick out anything at all. It was already hard enough to find my size (XS), not mentioning colours or styles. I was hoping they had some dresses there, but I saw none. On the positive note, I got 3 summer dresses for Squirt from children's section. They were very cute, nice patterns/colours, even had some wooden beads on the straps. Orignially sold at CAD26.50, I paid $5.50 each. Scored! The bf also got some Ts for like CAD4 a piece, and a pair of jeans for CAD5.50. I love Old Navy sales.

A little disappointed, I went to Sally's :-) My mom wanted some more haircolour touch up sticks. I got her the Claudia Stevens Cover That Grey Temporary Touch-up Stick) last time and she liked it. But this time in store, the Roux Temporary Haircolor Touch-Up Stick were buy 2 get 1 free, so I bought those instead. They only had 2 sticks in stock, so I only have 2 in the picture :-) I'll have to come back to get the free one once they have more in storegave me a raincheck for the free one.

I also jumped on the Batiste dry shampoo wagon with the Original version. It was the last one in stock, so I didn't even have a chance to try any other scent. I was able to use my $5 off coupon, so I wasn't too cranky about the product being quite a bit more expensive than in the US (USD5.99 vs. CAD7.99), lol. I never use a dry shampoo before, don't know whether it's gonna take some practice.

In the background is my free GLOW magazine from Shoppers. Just a fun read about beauty, cosmetics, hair, etc. They sometimes have articles about relationship, health and stuff too.

The bf is flying to NY tomorrow for more than a week, so Squirt and I will spend our holiday (Natal Day) by ourselves. Don't know whether I want to fight traffic to take her to see fireworks that night. Fellow Canadians, any plan for this long weekend?


  1. i'm going to detroit for the long weekend. long drive but worth the deals! those dresses are cute! may i ask who Squirt is ?


  2. Ooh, I didn't know they sell the Basiste ds at Sally's. I've always seen it talked about online, but never seen in stores, haha. Hope I can find it while it's on sale still. :D Thanks for the linky ♥

  3. Gee, I would go shopping in the States if I can. Hope to hear what you get from Detroit.

    Squirt is my 6-year-old daughter :-)

    Julienne, check Sally's quick, as I don't know the sale will still be on in August. The stuff is selling like hot cakes.
