I’ve been waiting till payday, which was, mercifully, on Friday. I had a list of things I’ve been waiting to get, which included:
- Shampoo and deep conditioner for 2C/3A, low-porosity hair.
- Face serum that Hot & Flashy recommends. Yes, I AM obsessed with Hot & Flashy, and who wouldn’t be? Look at her! Good gravy; she’s magnificent. Hot & Flashy is my new Carrie Bradshaw.
- Groceries, including yogurt and healthy not-at-all-processed Lean Cuisines.
- Foundation from IT Cosmetics because (wait for it) Hot & Flashy recommends it.
Sunday morning I made myself a little list of everything I had to buy because have you met my ADD? Yes, you have. If you’ve ever read one single day beyond this one, yes, you have met and made out with my ADD.
The first thing I did was go online to order the Vitamin C serum. Hot & Flashy–and clearly I am planning to run off with her and be June & Flashy–gives you 5% off if you go to this one website that sells the serum and put in a special “I’m obsessed with Hot & Flashy” code. (It’s hf5off.)
I used Paypal for my purchase, which I always opt for because it’s faster and heaven knows I’m pressed for time with all these kids.
My point is, I forgot one of you gave me a tip this week, and it covered my serum, so my total was ZEEEEERO!
I did not know it was the start of a whole day of deals.
After my online extravaganza, I walked in the cold rainy day and got in my cold car and headed to the Target. I’d done some research and there was a specific curly-girl-friendly shampoo and deep conditioner I wanted to try.
By the way, that last link is for just in case you were all, “There are products that are friendly to curls?” Yes. Yes, there are. They don’t have harsh stuff in them so there’s less chance you’ll look like Voltaire after you use them. That link just tells you a little about that and lists specific products, but there are tons more.
Anyway, I’d heard good stuff about this Carol’s Lover or Carol’s Banana or Carol’s Christmas or whatever products, and they sell them at Target so did I mention I drove through the cold rain?
Oh my god! I got some of Carol’s Dingy Black Vanilla shampoo and Carol’s Dong deep conditioner, and got 25% off one of them! Then? I got to the checkout? And remembered I had a Target gift card, and my purchase was FREEEEEEE!
I was on such a roll, man.
Then I got flea meds at PetSmart and paid full price but shut up.
I headed to Ulta, and remember when I hated them? I got over it. Anyway, I got the IT Foundation that H&F told me to get; now we’re so close that I just call her H&F.
I haven’t used it yet because it was Sunday and who cares what I look like on Sunday. My point is, I went to the counter to pay my cash money and remembered I had an Ulta gift card, so my
How sick of me are you? Go ahead, feel FREEEEEEE!
Finally, I went to the grocery store near my house, and on my list was yogurt, and they were selling it 4 for $5, AND? Lean Cuisines were ALSO on sale, so everything was practically
I should have bought a lottery ticket or something.
The only other news I have to impart to you is I got a few work emails while I was out, so eventually, I had to sit at my computer and do some work yesterday afternoon. Because I’m salaried, I worked for
