Hump Day Eve

It is slowly moving to Tuesday.  Aaaaaaaaaaaaah.



Today is actually cooler.

Summer has begun at work yesterday and it's nice to have a quiet campus.  But we have lots of  "fragrant" students around.  They are from Middle East, I think.  And they loooooooooooooove cologne.  Even with my weak nose I could smell it.

I should be getting a butt load of packages this week.  Yesterday, I got my brush soap, brush cleanser, my lip balm holder, Target boxes (actually from last Friday when I was out), dachshund decal and my IT cosmetic from QVC.  I will do some review for some of the items and what not.

And tomorrow I should be getting more packages tomorrow:
Bonjour Jolie (May AND June boxes.  Geez.); MetaDerm and shampoo from Amazon; some eczema salve I have found online (excited to try); Coach tag thingy; my Erin Condren planner.  Yay.

I have been using my EC planner again, but  I am still using my bullet journal and also my google calendar. They are serving different purposes (sort of)... so it should work.  Anyhoo, will post more when my goodies arrived.

I called my doctor yesterday to tell her my antibiotics is making me feel weird, so I will be getting a new one today.  Arg.  I hope this one will work.  Because I want to put this behind me.

I got my personalized decal yesterday.  I got it from Sticky Pets.  Isn't this cute?  My intention is to stick this to my cling vinyl THEN stick it to the back of my car window, so it's not permanent.  Yes?  And there is Gigi snoozing away in the background.  She is so cute.  I also received 2 pawprints stickers for free.

And this is something I have found via Instagram.  This is Bare Naked {1 ounce} Swirl & Sparkle Brush Cleanser {Goat's Milk}.
I choose the one without "diamond" in unscented (if you see the smaller sample on the side, you see something sticking out, I believe that's the diamond which helps to scrub your brushes), because I also need this for my beauty blender.  I ordered on 6/8 and received on 6/16.  I like my beauty blender solid ok (actually just bought a full size), but want to give indie company some support (which I often do).  When I placed my order they were doing a special which give me a free sample and free shipping.  The announcement was no longer on their shop, but that's what it was.  So I picked my little sample, but I couldn't use the coupon code for free shipping, but I still placed my order anyway. and I put a note with my order just FYI, because I know I am not the only one.  Then she replied by saying  "We offered FREE SHIPPING after you had placed your order but would still like to honor that. Please let me know if you'd like to have that refunded, or add an extra mini for you. If you'd like a mini, please let me know what scent :)", which I don't get what she meant by after you placed your order?  But anyway I told her I would get another unscented sample... but when I got my package I got a lip balm looking thing with my soap.  It came in a slim lip balm tube with no label and it is not something from her shop.  So once again I am lost.  I do like the packaging and am interested to see how well it works.

Here is the description from my listing:
Bare Naked S&S = NO diamonds inside the cleanser
Signature S&S = Diamonds inside the cleanser

This listing is for our Bare Naked 1 ounce cleanser (comes in a 2 ounce container to accommodate the sugar diamonds on the inside of the lid).

Comparable to:
Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser = 1 ounce for $15.95
Swirl & Sparkle Solid Cleanser = 1 ounce for $17.99 (and it smells delicious enough to eat!)

To help celebrate the Launch of our Swirl & Sparkle Cleanser, enjoy FREE SHIPPING and a FREE bonus mini sample of your choice!

The outside lid is customized with the initial of your choice! Please put in your NOTES your letter of your choice AND your IG screen name (if you have one) when you check out.

** Hand poured, hand assembled - handmade with lots of love**

While we LOVE our diamonds, we know they are not friendly to our beloved Beauty Blender/Real Techniques Sponge/Etc. so we've taken them OUT.

Be sure to really wet your sponge (leave some moisture in it, don't squeeze out all the water) and swipe/rotate your problem areas onto the cleanser. Run it under water some more to get a good lather. Remember to only squeeze with the pads of your fingers, and not with your fingernails. {Squeeze} {Squeeze} {Squeeze} DONE!

We know you'll enjoy your journey towards the cleanest sponge you've ever had! And I won't lie, you might crave a cupcake (or two) as a reward for a job well done afterwards!

Choose between 3 of our signature scents and unscented:

{1} Toasted Marshmallow will waft over your senses while you wash and clean your make up brushes.

{2) Coconut Mandarin will take you away to your favorite tropical island.

{3} Chocolate Cake - need I say more?

{4} Unscented

Be sure to rinse off (with water) any residue from the cleanser and air dry completely before putting the lid back on.
