Been Out Sick…For Two Months!

Hey there! Long time no post! I’m the worst blogger ever! I just realized that i haven’t posted anything here in 2 months! I’m so sorry about that! I’m still dealing with my TMJ issues, and this last week I suffered with a nasty cold. I got my cold from my boyfriend, who got it from my nephews, after they were over here on the weekend. They like to come up and stay over every now and then with their Aunt Katie. It seems like a lot of people have been sick lately. Tis the season! I hope you all are in good health!

I have been meaning to make a couple of important phone calls to schedule medical appointments, but I’ve just felt miserably sick. I need to schedule a consult with an oral surgeon for the possibility of surgery, since I have a ton of fluid surrounding my jaw joint. I figured that with being sick, there isn’t much they could do right away. Plus, my throat was holding me back from speaking properly…

I use an app called Slice on my phone. It tracks packages, orders, expenses, and it even let’s you know when there is a price drop on something you ordered. I had ordered the Real Techniques Limited Edition illuminate and accentuate 2.0 set from Target. I had missed out on a lower price from Black Friday on the ULTA website, so I decided to just go ahead and order it full price. Slice notified me of the price drop. It dropped down to $13.99 after I had paid $19.99. So I contacted Target customer service by phone, they were pretty busy and preferred a phone call for price comparisons. I felt so bad for the lady I was talking to, she could barely understand me with the frog I had in my throat. I got it done though and $6.00 was refunded back to me. 

I haven’t tried this set yet, but I really love Real Techniques brushes and their blending sponges. I highly recommend them. They work great and won’t break the bank! Unfortunately, these are not on sale anymore at Target. 

The Slice app has been very helpful when it comes to keeping track of my packages. It would be especially helpful to those of us who do all of our Christmas shopping online. I pretty much do 90% of my shopping online. That goes for anytime, not just for the holidays. I have some other useful apps I use as well. I can do a post about them if anyone would like one. Just let me know in the comments. I can also elaborate a little more on this particular app as well.

Anyway, I plan on making my phone calls ASAP since I can speak more clearly now. I also would like to try to get some more blog posts up soon. I have ordered quite a bit with all of the awesome sales/deals going on. There was Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and “Cyber Week.” Even now, several websites are doing 25 Days Of Christmas specials. I’m sure I won’t run out of new products to talk about anytime soon. 

Speaking of shopping, who is ready to go on a no-buy/low buy with me? When you’re a beauty blogger, we seem to end up with an overabundance of beauty products. You just get caught up in all of the hype when it comes to new products, especially when they’re “Limited Edition.” Or with these recent holiday sales, you feel like you should buy something just because it’s on sale and you don’t want to miss out on such a great deal to save money…when really you would save a heck of a lot more by not buying anything in the first place! 

If you have gone on a no-buy or a low buy, let me know how that went for you, and if you have any helpful tips…OR if you are planning on doing it, what’s your plan of action? Let me know! This concludes this post. I just wanted to touch base and update everyone on where I’ve been. I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! 🎄 Thank you for stopping by and for reading!

P.S. The kitty in the picture is my baby girl Allie ❤

Be Back Soon!

Hey there! I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I’m sorry that I haven’t been on here in a while to read or comment on your posts. I was very busy getting ready for Christmas and all of that good stuff. Now I’m not feeling too well, and I think I overdid it. When you have a chronic illness/pain, you need to pace yourself. Some of you know about my health issues, but if anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. Anyhow, my best friend is here in Michigan and I’m planning on hanging out with her for a few days at the end of the week. I haven’t seen her in over a year. I am just trying to take it easy and rest up the next couple of days. I don’t think I will be able to get a new post up this week, but I will get one up next week. I hope you all have a great week! I’m looking forward to returning and getting back into the groove of things. 
Much Love! ❤
