I began my journey on Blogspot.com with this post (here) …BORING…a single picture of two bottles of Sally Hansen nail polish and 3 packs of Salon effects clearly marked for clearance from Walgreens…no descriptions…nothing…comments…none…just crickets – oh what a difference a year makes.

The first post to receive a comment and a “like was 40 days later, “Goodwill Deals – Gucci from the 90’s” from Lesley Carter of Bucket List Publications and my girlfriend Wanda, that stroked my ego so I continued purchasing and posting.

As time progressed I read and learned more and found my niche, but more importantly I realized the most rewarding aspect of blogging was the interaction between great virtual friends and followers.

In your own way, each of you have touched my heart and filled a void in such a glorious way that I could never truly express how I feel, so please accept my heart felt THANK YOU…a SMOOCH…and this big ole bag of MONEY…spend it wisely!

 

thank you

Hello friends and happy Saturday. Yesterday I left work early because I got really ill after eating a sample of pasta salad from Primo Hoagies. My head was spinning so badly that I didn’t think I would make it home. I did however, with a lot of prayer and by keeping my head steady and firmly pressed against the head rest. Because I rarely if ever get sick I always think the worst, this time a brain tumor or aneurysm came to mind – I know! I feel better but still have a dull headache which doesn’t seem to want to go away even with several Alleve capsules.

This morning I had my annual eye appointment and chose to have the full comprehensive Optomap and refraction exam to rule out any constricted blood vessels or major changes to my vision. Everything was normal and although I still have to wear glasses my vision got better, not worse. I took over 30 minutes, tried on more than 12 pairs looking for just the right frame to ensure I would wear the glasses as prescribed.

After leaving Halpern Eye Care I drove to Family Dollar for cleaning and beauty supplies. I got the normal items, PineSol, Gain detergent, cotton balls, tooth brushes and tooth paste but what caught my eye were the 3 displays perched high above the other beauty supplies – Sally Hansen, Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals. The Kiss and Fingr’s nail decals were clearly marked $3., but there wasn’t a price listed on the Sally Hansen products. Having bought Salon effects from both Walmart and Walgreens they are normally priced $8.50, so thinking they were at least that price I only put one box in my basket. At the register they rang up $5.00 which is a fantastic price, I will now search for coupons for my next purchase at Family Dollar.

Have a fantabulous night – Smooches!

If you ever shopped at a five Below you’d know that in addition to the toys, school supplies, candy, plastic wear, swimwear, iPhone/laptop/computer accessories, blah blah blah blah blah, they also carry nailwear and cosmetics on the cheap.  I stopped in last evening and picked up a few items to add to my already excessive nail polish collection!  Unfortunately, my nails were weaken by a Gel manicure done at a salon so I have been doing my own and I like the new colors and products currently on the market.  fiveBelow also carries a brand of the Magnetic nail polish which I would like to try, but they only had one bottle and it was a color that I didn’t particularly like so I’ll check another store over the weekend.

Sally Hansen HD Hi Def Nailwear – $2.00

Sally Hansen Salon Effects – $3.00

Nutra Nail Gel Manicure Kit – $5.00

I need to go through and organize this mess!

By the way, check out my cousin’s nails, these are short considering what they once were a few years ago!

I found a few new items at Dollar Tree this morning:

  • Whole Flaxseed which I love sprinkled on my salads and in my smoothies
  • Hazelnut Spread, my son likes on Graham crackers
  • White Tea with Pomegrante
  • Herr’s Kettle Chips
  • Sally Hansen French Manicure Set – it originally rang up $9.50, cashier stated that they sometime receive cosmetics that should have been sent to other discount stores, i.e. Big Lot and sold at a higher price

    Great for pedicures

With in store sales, manufacturer’s coupons and a Walgreens $3.00 rewards certificate I was able to snag all of these items for less than $20.00

2 Covergirl Lash Blast Mascaras – on sale for $6.99 // used 2 coupons – Buy 1 Get 1 Free and $1.00 off 1 – paid $2.99 each

The rain has gone and the sun is shining brightly (in my eyes) ~ Spring  colors are popping and today it’s Pink!
