yesterday i started work at the store at 2:30 pm, so i had ample time to complete a few errands that i have been meaning to get to since last week [working full time puts a crimp in errand-running freedom – although i ♥ the flexibility of being able to get out and about in the retail calmness that is a weekday morning].
~ i gassed up the rav. by waiting, i saved over 2.5 cents a litre as gas prices dropped overnight!
~ operation barbie was a successful mission! zellers has all barbie dolls + accessories on sale for 30% off right now. is it bad to give xmas gifts two months early just cuz YOU want to play with the present??
~ the main focus of my outing was to get to the bay, specifically for:
[ok, i can’t resist: seinfeld fans…fake! fake! fake! fake!] 🙂
in fact, i have been accused of looking like george hamilton:
no insult. i just hate being pale!
anyway…the point of going to the lancome counter was so that i could stock up on my favourite bronzer:
i used to use lancome products, exclusively, for my skincare needs. in the past year or so, i’ve
gotten cheap branched out as the price of lancome really is enough to make your pocketbook say “ouch.” however, right now lancome at the bay has their semi-regular gift with purchase promotion. and this was a great one!
i got to choose from 1 of 3 face creams; 2 of 4…um, randoms (not sure how to classify as they were misc options); 4 of 6 cosmetics.
full disclosure: the star bronzer cost me $51.98 with tax. that is a lot of $ for some pressed brown powder (i spent some leftover birthday money). was it not for the gwp program, no way would i be forking out the moolah [i’m sure there are cheaper ways to look fake tan].
so! here are my picks:
key, here, is that i know from past experience that i like and will use each and every one of these choices. sometimes with *freebies,* the deal is too good to be true as stuff will
rot sit untouched in your drawer.
so, now i’m set for a while! [at least until christmas]. and you won’t see a glare off my forehead in any photos!
do share: what deals/coupons/freebies have you struck gold with, of late? update: i’m still waiting for towel #3 of my free cereal box towels to arrive. any day now, i hope!
