Red Tag Raid

Sally Beauty is having 50% off ALL Red Tag Clearance items!!! I love when they offer this sale! Plus, if you have any beauty rewards (such as 15% off your purchase) they will let you use them as well!! It’s a great time to save on a whole range of beauty items.

image

The sale starts today and goes all weekend (June 19th – June 21st). There are no restrictions (except OPI) and you can shop online or in store. In my personal experience, the in store locations have more selection and sometimes cheaper prices (with no shipping charges!!).

image

Here are a few of the items I was able to find during the sale!!! Some amazing deals!! All of these were found in store, so some prices are cheaper than found online.

Chi Elite Classic Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron
Retail: $99.99 CAD
Steal: $30 CAD

A Chi Elite curling iron for only $30?!?!? That’s unheard of. I almost gave in and ordered this online even though it would cost a little more with shipping and duties. Luckily, I was able to track one down in store and saved myself some cash. I’m loving this iron. It’s digital, heats up incredibly fast, and is super easy to adjust the heat settings. This is my new favorite quick and easy hairstyling tool.

Femme Couture Velvet Eye Color
Retail: $11.99 CAD
Steal: $1 CAD

Femme Couture Velvet Eye Color Duo
Retail: $11.99 CAD
Steal: $1 CAD

I’m loving these Velvet Eye Colors. I had already picked up a few shades a couple of sales ago, and knew that I had to grab every color available since they were now only $1. Such a steal!! These shadows are pigmented and bold. They are velvety and long lasting. They perform well on their own, but a primer really brings out their intensity.

image

Femme Couture Velvet Bronzer Blush Duo
Retail: $12.99 CAD
Steal: $2.80 CAD

How great are these duos for travel or on the go? I’m loving the shade combos. Both the blush and bronzer have a slight shimmer and the perfect pop of color. I bought these for my bag, but I’m totally falling in love with them and have been using them regularly.

Orly Gel FX Gel Nail Color
Retail: $18.99 CAD
Steal: $2 CAD

Gel Nail polish for $2, and ORLY Gel to beat!?!?!? I got a fifth color the next day (Terracotta) and used it in combination with the other four shades to make the most gorgeous summery ombre mani. This is great gel polish. The colors are opaque and long lasting. I got a full two weeks out of my mani before I took it off.

image

Orly Lacquer
Retail: $9.99 CAD
Steal: $2 CAD

I obviously had to grab a few more nail polishes, because $2 is just too great of a price to pass up. I prefer gel manis but I use regular lacquer on my toes or on top of a clear gel polish. The clear gel keeps my nails hard and healthy but it allows me to change the paint on my nails with fun colors, as often as I like.

One ‘n Only Finishing Hair Spray
Retail: $9.99 CAD
Steal: $3.45 CAD

The best times are when you need something and find it on sale!! I needed hairspray and found this for next to nothing. It dries quicky and doesn’t leave your hair hard or crunchy. It’s great for volume and backcombing or holding a few strands into place on your relaxed pony. So I bought three. No shame.

Plugged In 1 1/4″ Professional Spring Curling Iron
Retail: $39.99 CAD
Steal: $15 CAD

Oops. Another curling iron. But a bigger barrel. Perfect for loose waves or curls. Not as high quality as the Chi Elite, but still a great deal.

image

X8 Body Hardware
Retail: $39.99 CAD
Steal: $2 CAD

I have such a hard time finding cute HIGH quality body jewelry. My belly button is so sensitive. Normally the jewelery will say sterling silver or surgical steel, but that will only refer to the post. The actual gem or dangle parts will cause my skin to be irritated and eventually scab. I totally react to any cheap material. These X8 products are actually all Surgical Steel. They do not irritate me at all. For that reason, I bought every style available. Every. Style.

Sale lasts until the end of the weekend. Hurry in to Raid the Red, like I did!!! Let me know what exciting finds you come across!! ♡♡

Spring Savings

Every once in a while, you find some real gems in the most unexpected places. In this case, Bianca Amor’s. A warehouse style liquidation center. It doesn’t matter where in the country you live (or in the US), there are always outlet and liquidation centers. You never know what you will find, but that’s half the fun!! It’s what I like to call a “diamond in the rough“.

Mossimo Sundress Blue With White Hearts
Retail: $29.99 CAD
Steal: $8 CAD

How ADORABLE is this dress?? I can’t wait to wear this little number once the weather gets hot! I can see myself wearing this with an ice cream cone in hand!!

image
Covergirl Smoky Shadow Blast
Retail: $10.99 CAD
Steal: $2 CAD

I have heard terrible, terrible things about this duo stick. But in typical Boobs&Blonde fashion, I have to decide that for myself. I personally love cream eyeshadows, so I’m hoping the bad reviews were based on preference and not product. Time will tell. For two dollars, it’s worth a try!! I loved the black and white shades. Perfect for a variety of makeup looks or accents (like a pop of white in the corner of your inner eye).

image
Kleancolor 3D Nail Art
Retail: $5.99 CAD
Steal: $1.50 CAD

I’m definitely obsessed with doing my nails and all things nail art. Sparkles, glitter, foil … I want it all!!!! And for $1.50 CAD, it looks like I might be stocked for life!

French Connection Gold Waterfall Necklace
Retail: $68 CAD
Steal: $12 CAD

image

I am dying over these French Connection deals!! It is all soooooo cute!! I can’t wait to wear these this summer. Perfect to dress up a plain tank and jean shorts, or a simple Maxi dress!! I do plan to wear these year round, I know they will be just as great with sweaters!! Long necklaces are definitely my favorite!!

I’m feeling ready for spring with all of these great savings!! Have you found any great steals for the season?! Diamonds I’m telling you. Diamonds, baby. ♡♡

LuLu Loot

I love lululemon. Like really LOVE them. I own so many different styles of yoga pants, tops, shorts, hoodies … the list goes on and on. Paying $98 CAD for one pair of pants? So over my budget. What’s a girl to do? Either take a trip down to Seattle and splurge at the outlet (why does a CANADIAN retailer have their outlet in America?!?!?!), sell your first born to the devil, or check the clearance rack. That’s right, every lululemon location has a clearance rack, hidden in some back corner, somewhere.

Of course my latest purchase wasn’t planned. My friend wanted to go in and only I ended up making a purchase! Typical. I picked up a super adorable pair of printed leggings as well as a pair of cute pink shorts (photos are stock, not mine).

Wunder Under Pant *Full-On Luxtreme
Retail: $92 CAD
Steal: $69 CAD

Isn’t the print on these so cute? I love the tribal/camo style. These are perfect for dressing up an easy, relaxed, no fuss, outfit with a oversized sweater and a cute pair of boots (or a tank and gladiators)! You can get your own pair HERE, they have plenty left!! You can’t go wrong with lulu quality.

image

Run Times Short
Retail: $54 CAD
Steal: $39 CAD

How cute are these? I already own them in white but the pink was too cute to pass up!! I love all the hidden pockets including the zippered one in the back. These will be perfect for long summer jogs/walks with my pups! They also have a pair of “underwear” built in. They help the shorts stay in place and stop them from being see thru (bonus for me, sadness for you). They are super lightweight and very breathable. I’m so happy to have another color of these shorts!! Unfortunately, these are no longer available online, but a quick stop into your local store and you might find them!!

Great buys, guilt free!! You can check out all of lululemon’s clearance items by clicking here. What are some of your favorite lululemon finds?!?!

The ART Of Makeup

Spotted!!!! Sonia Kashuk’s NEW Spring 2015 line at the Target liquidation in Canada. I was able to find a bunch of these new graphic printed bags for 40% off!!! I had bought some of the bags from the last collection during the clearance, but I had to have these as well, the prints are just so cute. They also had the Fern and Floral line available, but I only grabbed the Face and Lip prints!

image

Is it just me, or does the Face print have a certain Picasso-esque vibe? I’m loving the bold prints and bright colors!

I had to go to a few different locations to round up all of these purchases, but every location I went to had the new prints, in stock, in some form. I’m still saddened by the looming loss over my freshly discovered love for Sonia Kashuk. It was short, but very sweet, affair. ♡♡

Walmart Wonder

Did you know that Walmart has a clearance section? If you live in the States then yes, you probably did. You guys have a whole section designated to clearance items!! We Canadians, don’t. But clearance deals can still be found. Each department will have a designated mini area with any clearance items. Typically, these are shelves on the back end of a rack or in a dark corner. Inviting, eh?! Nothing like making your way into the deepest darkest corner and emerging with some wonderful treasures.

Pantene Pro-V Advanced+ Keratin Repair Collection Starter Kit
Retail: $10.99 CAD
Steal: $2 CAD

Everyone knows I’m a brand whore. An expensive brand whore. And Pantene does not fit into this category. I don’t think I have used drugstore shampoo and conditioner since I was a preteen, even as a teen I used Redken. But when I saw this SET on clearance for $2 CAD, I knew I had to give the drugstore brand a chance. This line, the Pantene Expert Collection, is specifically designed for damaged or aging hair. This formula, Advanced+ Keratin Repair, is supposed to “reverse 2 years worth of damage in just 2 minutes“. That’s quite a big promise for a drugstore brand haircare line.

image

The kit contained:
• Advanced+ Keratin Repair Shampoo
• Advanced+ Keratin Repair Conditioner
• Advanced+ Keratin Repair Split End Fuser

So the verdict, did it repair my split ends and strengthen my fine, thin, natural blonde mane? Yes! I did see a difference in the ends of my hair, they did look fused!! But to be fair, any of my smoothing treatments (i.e. Moroccanoil Treatment) make my ends look the same way. This didn’t do anything amazing to my hair. Did this take off two years of damage? No. Did my hair feel smooth and soft afterwards? Yes. Maybe if your hair was truly exhausted, this would make a world of difference. But I take care of my hair. I use coconut oil overnight, I comb it when it’s wet (not brush), I try to use hair products without sulfates. Maybe my hair isn’t damaged enough to show any true, shocking results. Go on bitch, go and brush your shoulders off.

This kit was worth every penny of my $2 CAD. But will I buy again? No, especially not with the $13.99 CAD price per product. I would rather spend a few more dollars and get a higher quality product. This kit however, will be great for travel!! I don’t travel with my good hair products, as luggage often goes missing, and far too often for me to risk it. Besides using the Pantene as my travel bitch, I will stick to my ride-or-die salon products for my daily needs. And a final word to my babes: Bumble and Bumble, Living Proof, Redken … don’t worrying I’m still your little (brand) whore
