Couponing Deal of the Week

I'm really mad that it took a dumb couponing show to get me into coupons. I've only been clipping coupons for about a month or two, and I've already scored so many great deals. I'm not going to be buying things weekly, but if I happen to score a great deal with coupons I will definitely be posting it. This weeks deal comes from CVS.

Schick Quattro for Women 4 Refill Cartridges
Regularly $12.79
On sale for $8.99
Coupon for $4 from 9/25 insert
Extra Care Bucks back $4
Final cost: $.99

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
Regularly $5.79
On sale for $2.99
Coupon for $1.50
Final cost: $1.49

Orbit Gum 35 pieces

Those my loves are some amazing deals! You can definitely grab some of these deals even if you don't have the coupons. Let me know if you make any great couponing scores!

Adore Me-Getting Sexy Monthly

Who doesn't love getting a present every month? I know I do! Even if it's a gift to myself from myself. Monthly subscription services seem to be more popular than ever. Who hasn't gotten a beauty box from Birchbox, a killer pair of shoes from ShoeDazzle, some earrings from Jewelmint or a cute t-shirt from Stylemint? Well it seems the one female necessity that hasn't had a monthly service site is lingerie...until now!

Adoreme.com is the web's first monthly lingerie subscription service. For $40 a month you can get a lingerie set sent right to your door ranging from tame to sexxxy. The site isn't set to launch until November, but is similar to most monthly subscription sites. You take a style survey at pieces are recommended to you each month based on the results of your quiz. You can choose to order every month, or skip a month if money is tight or you don't see anything you like.

Again, the site doesn't launch until November, but you can sign up for an account now by clicking here!

Come on ladies...we spend how much on manis/pedis, foundations, mascaras...it's time to spend that much on something that keeps some of our most important assets nice and happy lol.

Current Faves- September Edition

I haven't done a current faves in a while, so I decided to gather up some of my fave products and let you guys know about them. These are the products I've been reaching for the most over the past month or so.

I wrote about my last QVC Beauty Tube here. I used to look forward to my Birchbox every month, but I have been disappointed with them the past few months so I cancelled it. Just a few days after I cancelled Birchbox, I stumbled across the QVC Beauty Tubes portion on QVC. I had ordered one a few months ago, and I couldn't resist signing up for the auto-delivery. Read the post for more info!

Now that I'm back to work, I just want to look cute and comfy. Gotta love my bobby pins for that. My classroom is too damn hot to have my hair down or in my face, so I pin everything up or back with twists or braids.

Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow Palette in Moonlit Jewels is a great simple cream palette to wear on those lazy days where you still want a little bit of color on your eyes. The colors are very subtle and on the shimmery side. It's a nice jewel toned palette. I'm going to test these babies out as color bases also.

Revlon Custom Eyes Palette in Party Pops. This is a fun twist on an every day eye. The colors look bright, but they are actually very sheer so I wear this to work at least one a day a week. The colors work really well together and also work well to bring out the green in my eyes.

I've loved wearing shadow as liner lately. Sometimes I don't want the harsh look of liner or I want to wear a fun color which I feel more safe doing with a shadow liner. I currently use the Sonia Kashuk angled liner brush..but I'm looking for a thinner one if anyone has any recs!

Cargo blush in Mendocino. This blush is so gorgeous! Warning though, it needs to be used with a super light hand and it's not for fans of sparkles. This reminds me of Nars Orgasm, but a bit more color. I love this as a bright pop of color on the cheeks. It makes me look alive.

I don't wear contacts that often, but when I do I find that they dry out very quickly on my eyes. This drives me LOCO, so I tried Opti-Free Express Rewetting Drops and problem solved! I still only wear my contacts once in a blue, but these drops make that experience a lot more comfortable.

I have totally hopped on the couponing bandwagon. Thanks to Extreme Couponing, websites like Coupondivas.com, and my Tammy-ness, I have become obsessed with couponing. I got a lovely couponing binder and I snip away every weekend. It's amazing the deals I've gotten by putting in a little leg work and a little research!

QVC Beauty Tube

A couple of months ago I ordered QVC's Beauty Tube. While home in the middle of Hurricane Irene, I spent hours watching QVC, and saw that they had a new QVC Beauty Tube! I ordered it right away (through ebates of course!) and ordered it on Auto Delivery. So I will be receiving a brand new Beauty Tube in October, January, April August and next October For $30 these products are pretty awesome, and I no longer have my Birchbox account because of these beauty tubes.

August's Beauty Tube included the following fab products:

From to L to R, top to bottom:

Lea Journo Hydra Riche Hydrating Conditioner
IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil
Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturizer
Philosophy Microdelivery Wash
Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15
Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Fame
Oscar Blandi Pronto Invisible Dry Shampoo Spray
Lavanilla The Healthy Body Butter in Vanilla Coconut

There are a few products that I really can't wait to try. I'm very excited to try the Philosophy Microdelivery Wash and the Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment. My skin has just been blah lately, even though I've been taking really good care of it. I've also read tons of stuff about Fresh's lip products. Let me try these babies out for some time, and I'll be sure to review them!
