Freebie Monday: SampleSource.com




It has been on my bucket list to share this freebie with everyone for the longest time! One of my tasks at work is to create free sample postings daily for US customers, I can't help but do a quick search on Canadian freebies. My greatest find is this little gem! SampleSource is a company that let's customers sign up to try new products before making a purchase. This is great for those who are more money conscious, like myself. This shipment arrived within a few weeks of signing up. The product I wanted to try out the most is the Biore Nose Strip!

What's the latest freebie you've received?

First Sephora VIB Haul



Fall has been a busy month!
I made a routine of getting out and about on the weekends to events around town. Best of all, there is always something going on. Check out www.districtlocal.com for events near you.

Back to my favorite topic: beauty! This is my first VIB Sephora Haul! Personally I am not a frequent shopper at Sephora for a couple of reasons. I don't live close by to one, and my budget can't sustain going there every week. Thus having a friend who's a beautyholic is a blessing. She is a VIB holder with good insight about makeup & skincare. She invited me to join her for VIB shopping event a few weeks back. With 20% off everything, you can expect a large line of female shoppers being photographed by countless amount of passerby in the mall. Creepers aside, it was a great event for those thinking of getting into the makeup routine! Mine wasn't so much on makeup, but more on skincare. I wanted to try Sephora's Mattifying Moisturizers, and L'Occitane Hand Cream. Also needed a concealer for my undereyes for work as my current Avanti one is almost done. So I got those along with my favorite Shiseido Pureness Balancing Softener!

Needless to say, I was a little disappointed about Sephora's moisturizers because they made my face more glossy than usual within a few hours. It didn't last 8 hours, as promised on the packaging.

What did you buy at the VIB event?
