Weekend Beauty: New Wet N' Wild Color Icon Trios, CVS Beauty Club and How I Made $7 on Physician's Formula Mascara!!

Monday, January 31, 2011

 After seaching around for the new Wet N'Wild Trios on Saturday and coming up zero, I fell into my local CVS and found them!! I couldn't believe it!. I swear I spend the majority of my beauty obesessed life "hunting" products down.:(

I only got five of the six. I'm missing "Spoiled Brat" but I'm okay not having it.

Next up: The Wet N' Wild 8-pans....
 I Got Good Jeans
 Silent Treatment
 I'm Feeling Retro
 I'm Getting Sunburned
 I Dream of Greenie

The names of the palettes remind me of OPI polish names. Corny but cute:).
 I also had a $10 off any Physicians Formula Foundation, Powder or Blush. It printed out the red slot box a week ago. I didnt read the "Foundation, Powder, or Blush" part til' I got to the register.:( But, the cashier took it off any way....hope she doesn't get in trouble.:/
 Here's the grand total....see that $1...it was some random coupon still attach to the $10 off coupon that the cashier scanned too. I didn't open my mouth. *looks around*
 AND I got $7 in EBs for  buying $10 in Physician's Formula...I didn't even know about that!
Check this out: the whole purchase is about $27 in makeup, right....Why did my receipt only show $3.49 toward my Beauty Club Rewards? Well, cousins, I called Customer Service at CVS and they explained that it takes 48 hours for my BCR to update. Also, when you do get to $50, it takes 48 hours for the $5 EBs to print.

I'm a CVS heaux....I lurv that place so much.:)





Jamie's Weight Loss Diaries.... #2...Weekend Eating...

This weight loss thing here is absolutely, positively all about lifestyle change. For me, PERSONALLY, food is ruled my every emotion and never ever realized it. I was oblivious to how I ate emotionally all the time til I entered my first full week of the "change" and Friday, Saturday and Sunday rolled around.

The Weekend, as working people would call it.


The weekend is when my eating and emotions get completely out of control.  Again, oblivious to what was going on til I saw pictures of myself. Any given weekend in the last three, four years...three things happen:

1) The kids' go to their dad's house. Instead of enjoying the time "off", I dont take "off" .I'm a complete ball of loneliness or anxiety.

2) The kids' are here. lol! And something going on, someone's sick, someone's on restriction, I'm broke, I'm tired....

3) And within the last year either 1) or 2) includes my stressful parental unit, that we were forced to live with AGAIN.

I would cook wings, nachos, mac & cheese and if I had money, I would eat out every meal til' Sunday showed its face. I was feeding my loneliness, sadness and stress...


Welp, the first weekend after change...I slipped a fell, right into Zaxby's twice and Publix for raspberry layer slices to eat while watching funny movies to keep my spirits up. Sunday rolled around and I looked at my food journal and got mad at myself for eating like that....and a lightbulb came on just why I did.


I still have those same weekends....my life hasn't changed but this past weekend was the first weekend I didnt mess up my food choices. I had one splurge, Pad Thai at Moonsoon but everything else was right on schedule. My food journal held me accountable. By writing down everything I ate and having to write it down, I didnt want write or read,  "2 cake slices from Publix:( "

Plus, a trip to the Goodwill also helped. Yep.  The Goodwill.  You can find nice stuff for plus size girls in there for sure, but the really cute stuff, the vintage dresses that I love, the Gap Cargos I wanted, were all in smaller sizes. When I mean smaller, like 10, 12, 14,...lol! I long to shop in the smaller sections, the Medium and Large.


Weekend Eating or some called it binging on the weekends? Anyone else have a problem? Tell me in the comments:)
