Hi Everyone!!  I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving and were able to spend the time with the people you love.  And for those of you not in the US…  I hope you had a nice Thursday 🙂  Today I wanted to talk about three different topics and all of them begin with the letter B so I decided to combine them into one post.

Boots – I bought some boots online yesterday (more proof that I LOVE shoes).  These were some boots that I’ve wanted for a long time to replace an old pair that are literally falling apart on me.  But I wanted a good pair, and that means saving up some money.  Unless you shop after Thanksgiving.  I got the pair below in black.  Normally they are $90 and I got them for only $24.  Um..  Yes!!

Boots from Kohls – in Black

Black Friday – I went Black Friday shopping today.  It was only my third time going but this was my best ever.  My first year I just went with family.  I didn’t buy anything, just wanted to experience it.  Last year I went and just bought myself presents because I was shopping with all the people I needed to buy for.  This year, I still bought myself a couple items but for the most part got almost all of my Christmas shopping done!!  And I saved SO much money I was shocked.  I got two different sweaters for my brother.  Both sweaters were normally $50 each and I only had to spend $20 each.  And that was just a small portion of what I got.  I hope my family and friends are cool with receiving clothes because that’s the majority of what I bought; someone’s got to dress these people.  🙂  I wish we had one more Black Friday event so that I could finish the shopping I need and save even more money.  Black Friday is a fantastic event in my opinion.

Ok, mine was much less crazy than this… Kind of boring actually.

Speaking of Black Friday, my boutique (Quiet Girl Boutique) is having a huge Black Friday sale with items up to 50% off.  So if you still want to take advantage of sales but are over the crowds or if you live somewhere that Black Friday may not be a thing, come and check out our deals here!  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a $15 off a $30 purchase at Quiet Girl Boutique.  You still have 2 days left!! a Rafflecopter giveaway

Quiet Girl Boutique Black Friday Sale

BB Creme – Have you all tried BB creme?  Am I just late to this party?  I’ve used primer before and liked this but recently decided to try this (aka:  Ulta had a sale so I picked some up) and Oh. My. Goodness.  I have never experienced anything like it!!  In a magazine advertisement it is described as this:

“so beautifying, hydrating, unbelievably light.  It’s instant bare perfection.”

Normally I would see something like that say, “yeah right” and go on about my day.  But they are not lying.  The first time I used it, I washed my face and put this on before my makeup.  I hadn’t even put on a drop of makeup and my skin looked better than I have ever seen it look.  After my makeup, I almost didn’t recognize myself (in a good way)!  My skin had a glow that I always wish I could get and it gave me so much added confidence and self-esteem that I would have paid more than the $6-8 I paid (I don’t actually remember how much it cost).  This will definitely be an item forever in my daily routine!

This little tube is full of magic!!

What about you?  Did you Black Friday shop or are you a believer in the BB creme magic?

PS:  I made a pie yesterday and will be blogging about it later, complete with pictures!!

Hello Lovelies!

I have exciting news.  I know that I had mentioned that I would host a giveaway once I hit 30 followers (and I still plan on doing that) but I got an idea for a giveaway while I was shopping at Target yesterday and I was too excited and just had to do it now.  So in honor of Labor Day, my first ever giveaway!

I don’t know about you, but I don’t always feel like putting on makeup.  There are just days when I don’t want to mess with it and it feels too “labor-intensive” (pun intended).  When I feel like this, I especially don’t want to be dishing out my hard earned cash for a ton of cosmetic products that most days just sit on my shelf, unused.  Enter e.l.f. cosmetics.  When my best friend told me about this brand, I thought it was too good to be true.  I went to my nearest Target and, lo and behold, most definitely true.  They have every makeup option you could want:  eye shadows, bronzers, blushers, brushes, glosses and any other item to beautify yourself and I have yet to find an item over $6.  (*Side note:  on the website, they have larger sets for a bit more, but these are all single priced items).  This is the kind of product I can get behind.  I can load up my cart, not spend a fortune and then not feel guilty during the weeks days that I go without makeup.  I decided then and there, in the middle of the Target beauty section that I wanted to help you guys out!  I am going to be giving away $25 in e.l.f cosmetic products to one lucky reader.

You can see the options for entering below and you can do as many or as few of the items as you choose.  I have not put together the items yet, so you will be able to give me an idea of what you want included for a more customized option.  So get to entering!  This giveaway will probably be more interesting for the female readers but, guys you are more than welcome to enter as well!  Maybe you have a female loved one that you want to get a little something special for.  Or maybe you just like wearing makeup in your free time.  I don’t judge 🙂

This giveaway runs from now until 12:01 EST on Sept. 3 (Labor Day) so go check it out.  I’m not sure why the giveaway box is coming up as a link (below) rather than embedded in the page, but just click the link to complete the entries.

If you aren’t the lucky winner but still want to take advantage of the awesome pricing, I saw on the e.l.f. cosmetics website that they are currently offering free shipping for any order over $25!

*I am in no way affiliated with e.l.f cosmetics, I just really like the brand and wanted to share with you fantastic people!*

Good luck!!
