Quickie LUSH Haul (& Mother’s Day Set)

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I had enough empty containers to redeem for a free face mask and solicited recommendations from you. Thanks for all the suggestions! ๐Ÿ™‚ I finally got around to a LUSH store – here’s what I walked out with:

How pretty is that shopping bag?

I ended up more than I originally planned, but what else is new? ๐Ÿ™„

Sephora VIB Sale April 2017 Haul

It’s the start of May and normally I should have my Trash Stash up but I’m a bit delayed as this weekend was spent celebrating my SO’s birthday. So here’s my Sephora VIB Sale haul instead. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As I anticipated, I didn’t haul very much for the Sephora VIB sale this time around and pretty much stuck to my shopping list.

My First Miss A Haul (Shipping to Canada)

In my March accountability post, I hinted that I would likely haul from Miss A for the $1 blending sponges. And here it is!

Born Pretty Newbie Nail Stamping Haul

Yes you read it correctly, it’s a HAUL. But I’m in a No-Buy month…

…these were ordered back in January and only arrived recently! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ย Remember I mentioned in my “Last Hauluary” post that I was expecting 2 more parcels in the mail? One wasย the HauteLook TheBalm order, and the other one was this! ๐Ÿ˜‰

My First HauteLook Order! (TheBalm Haul)

In my “final” Hauluary post, I mentioned that I was waiting for a couple more shipments – this is one of them! ย In mid-January, I heard about TheBalm being on HauteLook for 50% off from Kailyย – I was both excited and a little bit apprehensive. I’ve contemplated for years about ordering makeup off HauteLook since they hold such amazing sales, but living in Canada often adds a whole layer of complexity – not to mention expense – when it comes to ordering from US-based sites. So how was my first HauteLook experience from a Canadian perspective?

Hauluary 2017 – Makeup and Skincare

When I look at it all together like this, I think I got a bit carried away with makeup hauling…

But when you pick up a little bit here, a little bit there, it doesn’t seem like it’s that much! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย I wasn’t able to go on actual Boxing Day to shop but many of the deals are available for the whole month of January – basically when stores sell out of stuff is when the sales end! ๐Ÿ˜›

Hauluary 2017 – Bath & Body

It’s the magical month known as Hauluary when I have no holds barred on shopping! ย I hauled so much in the past few weeksย that I decided to divide my haulage into 3 posts: body care, makeup and nail polish. ๐Ÿ˜› Today I’ll tackle the body care stuff:

This isn’t everything because I couldn’t fit it all in the frame. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

It didn’t help that the Bath & Body Works store near my work was closing down so they put almost the whole store on 75% off clearance. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I’m going to pass these hauls as early Christmas gifts to myself because I’m not above blatantly cheating on my low-buy. ๐Ÿ˜†
