So, I did a little shopping. Which was nice, because the only things I’ve been buying have to do with a new house, and after awhile even I get bored with that (did you see my new kitchen table in the photos?). How many times can you visit a furniture store before you just want to throw your hands up and say “forget it. Everyone is sitting on the floor.” So I decided to do a little spending at Ulta. You can never go wrong with Ulta.

But  I really didn’t have time to go to the store. In fact, I’m not even sure where my nearest Ulta is in my new town. And because I’m too lazy/busy to figure it out, I scored an even better deal by shopping through Splender.

If you haven’t heard of it, Splender is a way to shop that gives you up to 40% cash back on all your purchases. They have about 800 stores to choose from, and you can even use coupons and offers AND STILL get cash back. It didn’t take forever to join (honestly, some sites make you jump through 1000 hoops), and finding the store I want takes only seconds. All you have to do is use Spender as your launch page, and click through their link. They tally up how much you spend and send you an email with the amount of cash back you’ve earned. Check out how easy it is with this video:

Who doesn’t want cash back? Everyone wants a good deal.

So, are you ready to check out what I got in my Ulta haul? Here we go:

Physicians Formula

  • Shimmer Strip Custom Eye Shadow for Hazel eyes
  • Argan Wear argan oil with flecks of gold glitter (?)


  • Infallible Never Fail Silky Pencil Eyeliner in Pure Purple (I’ve been looking for a good purple/plum pencil)


  • Avant Pop Eyeshadow Palette
  • Wicked Dreams Eyeshadow Palette
  • Honey Dew Me Up primer
  • HD Blush in Amber (my skin tone has oddly changed this summer)

So I’m going to have plenty to write about in the coming weeks. I can’t wait!
