Ulta Haul 7-8-18

Well hello there!  I’ve been gone from my blog for a few months.  I had some health issues to contend with.

If you follow my blog at all, you may be aware that I’m somewhat obsessed with Ulta.  As I near a milestone birthday within the next six months, I’m trying to cut back on my spending.

I popped into my local Ulta today as I had some coupons, and Ulta sent me an email for a free gift with purchase.

I use to go to Ulta at least once a week. I might go monthly now.  I was sad to see that my local Ulta has greatly reduced there boxed hair color. They have added some prestige make up lines recently, and had to make room.

I really got a great deal, check out what I got for a whopping $11.58 below, a $35 value:

I had $10 in manufacturer’s coupons and a $3.50 rewards credit as well.  I got the Biolage hair care kit for free.

I have never used the Color Crave before, but had a $3 off coupon.  It’s actually quite nice and I think I’m going to go back and get some more, as these were on clearance. I’ve tried hair chalk, but it makes my hair feel like straw.  The Color Crave actually made my hair shiny.   I got rose gold.  I’ve been using the Neutrogena Moisture Smooth color in Almond Nude for a few years. The regular price is $8.99 US, and I paid $4.31.  It’s a great neutral color, and you don’t need a mirror to apply.

I love Clairol’s Root Touch up, super easy to use and I paid $2.47 for each of them. This really is a great color for gray roots.  Works every time.

Thanks for stopping by.

Zenni Optical Review

Hello, and happy Sunday!  I’ve haven’t posted in ages.  Busy at work and life in general.

This is my fourth pair of  Zenni’s Optical glasses.  You simply upload a photo of yourself to virtually try on glasses.  I purchased this pair that has magnetic clip on sun shades.  I have progressive lenses that are thin and super light weight.  For less than $2, I had my phone number engraved on one of the arms.

Here are the glasses without the sun shades, they are half rims. They are a tad bigger than I thought they would be, but I love them anyway.
