After Christmas Shopping Haul! Target and Bath & Body!

Hey ladies, so of course after Christmas we must all run out and go shopping with our Christmas money! Or do what I do and spend most of it on hot chocolates and gas money lol. But, I went out and bought some really cute things from Target and Bath and Body. Both those stores are my favorites to go in when I am shopping, I always go in being like “I’ll just spend $25” but, I end up leaving and being like “How did I spend $100 on lotion and socks?!”

I went to Target and picked up some really adorable organizers for my makeup vanity! I am someone who puts all the makeup on and just tosses it on my desk with no organization at all. So, I decided to pick up some little bins and holders to give my vanity a more professional clean look. Get this, I bought all these little cute holders below, all for $1 each! When you walk into Target they have a little $1 section, and you can find all these little containers there currently. I think they are a great bargain, and are good enough quality to hold my makeup brushes, lip glosses, and other cosmetic extras! They had a lot of different colors, but I went with the pink and white holders, so I would have some sort of theme. Below, I also have a picture of my makeup vanity, which is basically is an Ikea desk, and a giant mirror with a lamp. Haha pretty make-shift, but I prefer this set up, I have had real vanity tables in the past and they are too small! Using an actual desk allows me to spread out my stuff when using it 🙂 If you guys want a post about how I organize my makeup and my vanity desk let me know in the comments down below, and I’ll be sure to write one.

From Bath and Body, I got lots of goodies! I went there this week during their semiannual sale! They have lots of great deals, and a million products to buy for super cheap after the holidays. Seriously this is a warning, it is dangerous to go there if you don’t have much money on you, I got a little carried away…

Below, I picked up the Cashmere Glow shimmer Bomb, which is so incredible! It is a gel that you can rub onto your arms, legs, etc. and it is completely filled with different shimmery colored reflects. It also has a “glow” due to it’s slightly golden finish. This gel looks absolutely gorgeous on any skin tone, and smells amazing! After the sale discount, I got it for $3, which is an awesome deal for 6 oz of product. Next to it in the picture, is the Aromatherapy Sleep Lotion. I, like any other 20 year old, am a huge night owl. It takes me a lot of rolling around and starring at the ceiling in order to fall asleep at night. This lotion appealed to me, because I needed a new lotion and now I found one that aids in sleeping.  It claims that the honey and milk scent has a warm cinnamon and clove oil that promotes comfort and rest. Whether it actually helps me to sleep or not, the lotion is a great consistency; not greasy or sticky. It finishes smooth and silky, and has a very nice smell reminding me of fall; very warm and rich. The bottle itself is dark blue glass, and is very finely packaged. This lotion is originally $14 and After the sale I got it for $7!

Next I picked up this True Blue Spa Apricot and White Tea facial scrub. I am obsessed with face products right now, and was really excited to pick up this product! I love this brand, and every product I have tried from them I have really loved! Their lotions are so incredible, and they have a pretty good selection of products at Bath and Body. Definitely check them out, if your looking for any good skin care products. I have already tried this out and the scrub is very coarse so you have to be gentle when cleansing your skin. But, it left my face incredibly smooth and clean feeling. It also smells really good, which is obviously important to me :p Next to it in the picture is by the same brand and it is the True Blue Spa Unscented Shea Butter. As I said, their lotions work better than any I have ever tried before, including high end products. This tube is a pretty good size at 6 oz, I will probably end up using it as my purse lotion, I love to use this stuff on my hands to moisturize. I like that they offers scented and non scented lotions. My skin is very sensitive, but I don’t need to worry about this lotions having any harsh scents that might irritate my skin. As well, if you have perfume, scented shampoo, etc. It is nice to have a lotion for your body thats scent won’t interfere with the scent of your other products. I bought both of these on sale for $3 a piece, which is phenomenal considering they are normally around $15 per bottle.
