Weekend finds

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

So, the trip to Shoppers for their x20 point event last night didn't happen as I decided to do the redemption this weekend instead. I'm posting the weekend haul today.

Claire's was running 10 for $10 sale in the weekend, not sure if it's still going on. I found these 5 pastel nail polish shades with pretty bottle design, no individual names unfortunately. I wouldn't complain even if the colours suck on the nails, I just want to collect the bottles to tie me over until maybe one day I can grab some Ana Sui nail polish.

The rest of the loot was earrings, hair pins, Hello Kitty sun glasses (for Squirt), etc. Cheap accessories :)

Moving on to Lawtons clearance. These boxes each comes with 3 products and a $5 coupon to redeem toward a full sized product from the line. Retails CAD9.95, I paid half of that (the same value of the coupon). If I do use those coupons, I get my money worth. Good deal.

You know Marcelle AC Solution line is a staple of mine. The kit (right) has the Purifying Foaming Cleanser (50ml), Oil-free Moisturizing Balancing lotion (30ml) and Imperfections corrector (5.8ml, full size). Great for travelling.

Also wanted the Revival set as I have been enjoying the
Firming + Brightening Cream Serum, even when the line is meant for the 50+ age range. There is a Soothing Cleansing water (50ml), Intense Anti-Aging Day care (15ml) and Intense Anti-Aging Night care (15ml) in the box.

The New Age line is actually meant for my age range, the box has the Comforting Foaming cleanser (30ml), Anti-wrinkle + Firming Day cream and Night cream (15ml each). If you can't tell by now, I like the idea of these little travel sized sets.

BBW had the Home Scent even on Saturday. Squirt found the scent of her favorite ice cream - Mint Chocolate, so she begged for it. The large candles (14.5 oz) were on promotion 2 for CAD25, so I picked up Twilight Woods as well.

I'm not a big sweet scent fan, so I passed on the Halloween and Fall scents in store. But something else got me really excited about. Check out the pic below.

I had one of those $10 off $30 coupons by doing their survey, so I grabbed a few PocketBacs to make it to $30. In the pic are Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Orchard Leaves and Charmed Life (with duplicates), 5 for CAD5. Also got a Glow in the Dark and a swirly blue PocketBac holders, CAD.50 each.

Promotion of the day was the free Bake Shop bag and 3 mini sized (1.6 oz) candles with any home scent product purchase. I love all 3 of the candles: Marshmallow Peppermint, Candied Sugar Plum and Holiday Gumdrop, for the pretty labels and pretty scents. This holiday is going to look good in the candle department. Someone stops me from going to BBW around Christmas time, please!
