For something a bit different today, I’m going to talk about exercise! (Booooo! 😉 ) I am no fan of exercise. I hate to sweat. I’m also one of those people who is told, “You don’t need to exercise” because I happen to be thin. Here’s a tip on that last part – don’t do that! It’s not only insulting, but everyone needs exercise no matter what their body type! It’s a health issue, not strictly an aesthetic one and everyone has something they would like to improve! Back to my point…. Regardless of your reasons for exercising, getting motivated and actually doing it can be really difficult. I’m no expert and certainly no fitness guru, but I’m going to share with you the things that I do to get and stay motivated, and to keep that momentum going.
I feel like a lot of the people I’ve met through blogging over the years, I’ve met more or less within the last year or two. And though I have done “Get to Know Me” type things before, it’s been ages. Since I’m not just a beauty junkie – who is? – I thought I’d try to share some things about myself today!
As you all may have guessed, I purchase a lot of beauty products. Whether it’s hair care, skin care, body care or makeup, I have a crap ton of it! (Not proud of that so much, but it’s the truth.) I thought I would share with you one of the ways I save on all these things specifically at Ulta today. And let me add that this post is in no way sponsored or supported or even known about by any of the places mentioned. It is just my honest experience of how to save on beauty products. Sooo…we all know that most high end brands rarely, if ever, go on sale. Fear not my fine friends because there are ways to save! To prove it, I most recently ordered $265 worth of products and paid $34 (plus tax of course). How, you’re probably wondering? Well, sit back and I shall share my secrets! 😉
Tomorrow begins that glorious time when Ulta rolls out a new amazing deal each day of the week for 3 weeks. That’s right! It’s time for Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty!!! There are also some great deals that last through the entire event called “Hot Buys,” which I’ll list after the Daily Deals. If that’s not enough for you, there are a ton of free gifts with purchase as well, which are included at the end of the post. All of these deals are available to everyone, whether you are an Ulta Rewards member or not! I thought I would point out the cruelty free bargains that are happening and give you some quick thoughts if I’ve tried the product. All of these deals will be available both online and in stores, but for the Daily Deals you’ll want to log in or rush to stores as early as you can each day! So get ready to mark your calendars because these hot deals often fly off the shelves!
Like a lot of people, I remember the moment I heard what was happening very clearly. I received a phone call from my then boyfriend who told me that the first tower had been hit by a plane. Clearly that was asinine so I assumed he was joking. He kept telling me to turn on the TV and eventually I was persuaded. Needless to say, I was shocked. I stayed glued to the TV all day. I watched as the 2ndplane hit while the newscaster talked right over it about something else until he realized what was happening. And then…the collapse.
Let’s ease into the chill of Fall with some beauty highlights. New collections release with new products, new colors and, shockingly, Holiday Sets! Everything always looks new and exciting and, though the releases have been showing up earlier and earlier, it’s still a fantastic thing to look forward to in the Fall.
