Woo-hoo! It's Thursday! Which means it's almost Friday! And, of course, also time for Thursday Thoughts, linking up with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom! What's on my mind this week? Read on...
-It's the third week of school here, and the boys are settling in very well. I'm so happy with how quickly Knight is learning - he has his first spelling test tomorrow! I've been helping him study this week, and we've been practicing taking a test. Hopefully I still remember how a spelling test works! Dragon is talking so much more now, and his teachers are loving his new communication skills! I've gotten a few full sentences out of him lately, and he's even starting to count and learn some letters. I'm a proud Mama!
-I'm on a beauty low-buy for the month of September. Which means I'm not allowed to go shopping at Ulta, Sephora, or go wandering down the beauty aisles when I go grocery shopping! I had very little makeup when I started my beauty subscriptions last November, and I am now DROWNING IN IT. I blame the wonderful ladies at MakeupTalk for all of the amazing deals they post that I just can't pass up! I've decided that I do get enough makeup from the subs I have, and until the holiday deals start coming out, I am not allowed to buy any more! I know I'm getting makeup from Ipsy this month, Birchbox sends it occasionally, and Bondi (my new nail polish sub) is helping me fill out my (currently) small collection!
-Guess who's been chosen to host a Lash Bash? ME! Yay me! Ipsy and Benefit are teaming up to send out party kits to 1,000 lucky ladies, who will host a party and hand out goodies to 9 guests! So far, it's been confirmed that we're handing out deluxe sample sizes of Benetint, SugarBomb Lipgloss, and They're Real Mascara (MY MOST FAVORITE MASCARA EVAR!!!) to our guests. I will also be happily rolling around in some hostess goodies (which will definitely help me with my low-buy! Anytime I pick up makeup in a store, I STERNLY tell myself I'm getting free stuff soon, and then I can put the item back down!), including: Hervana Blush, Peek-a-Bright Eyes Eyeshadow Set, Creaseless Cream Shadows in Bikini-tini and Bronze Have More Fun, Gimme Brow Volumizing Brow Gel, and a FULL-SIZE They're Real Mascara! Several other MakeupTalk ladies are also hosting Lash Bashes, and if you'd like to check out our giddy excitement, feel free to read the conversation here!
|Also, here's the shameless selfie I used to apply for the LashBash! |
I think they're sending out the brow gel JUST for me!
That's what's on my mind today! Well, that and geeking out over the bag spoiler Ipsy just released! I feel like it's my reward for the housework I've done/will do today. I've already cleaned the kitchen, done a load of dishes AND one of laundry, and I'm about to start folding yet another basket of clothes! Oh and SPOILER ALERT: Here's a pic of the bag!
|Pretty, right? Pic is from Ipsy's FB page. |
Looks like a blue bag with some kind of black print. Yay!
What's on your mind today? Hope it's sunshine and rainbows!
