Hello! Okay, it's not technically a snow day since it's Sunday and I have today off, but it is snowing quite a lot outside and it may possibly continue into tomorrow (which would then maybe be a snow day!). I feel bad for my husband since he had to go into work today, but if the weather takes a turn for the worse, he'll hopefully be able to come home early. I just hope that his drive home will be safe and uneventful.
Due to the snow, I have some time to just hang out here and get a blog post out before it because as jam-packed as the previous one! After I got my order from Sephora on Thursday, I got an e-mail that said my hair oil had come back into stock! I'm running really low, so I decided to go ahead and order it, along with a nail treatment trio and a new mousse I've been wanting to try. I don't normally order things so close together, and I really want to avoid any extra purchases since the Innocent World oddment packs may be coming up any day now, but I really needed more hair oil.
I highly recommend the Kendi Oil from Alterna's Bamboo Smooth line. Highly. It never makes my hair look or feel greasy, and I really notice a different from when I do use it and when I don't. I also like it because it doesn't have a lot of the extra "bad" chemicals that other hair oils have. When I first wanted to try a hair oil, I debated between this and the Bumble and Bumble one, but this one won. And I am so glad it did! The hair mousse is also from Alterna's Bamboo Smooth line, and from the reviews, it looks pretty good. I'm always on the look out for things that will tame my hair. I have very dry, frizzy, curly, fine hair and that is a nightmare to do anything with. I've tried a lot (A LOT-I can't emphasis that enough) of different products, from the very cheap to the very expensive. The best results I've had have been from the Ouidad daily rinse shampoo and conditioner (though lately I've been using a sulfate-free shampoo from the drug store because I've been trying to save money. It seems to be working fairly well, but the Balancing Rinse Essential Daily Conditioner (that's the full name) is something my hair can deal without.) Unfortunately, Sephora doesn't carry the BRED Conditioner in store anymore, and it's sold out online pretty much all the time. I've had to go to Ulta to get it. After I get out of the shower, I use the hair oil and give it a little bit to soak in. Finally, I've been using the curl mousse by the John Frieda Frizz-Ease line. I have good experiences with mousses versus hair gels, but they do leave my hair crunchy. The Alterna mousse says it doesn't do that (though my hopes aren't high), so we'll see.
The nail treatment set also seems to sell out a lot online (it's an online exclusive) since you're basically get the quick-dry drops for free. I'm finally running out of my top and base coats, so I figured why not capitalize on a good deal, since I was lucky and it was in stock.
To change gears, there's a new Pokemon TCG Expansion out; PLASMA STORM. Obviously, I had to go get some packs!
Overall, I'm still on the fence about this new expansion. I don't really like the Team Plasma Pokemon so far, but it's nice to have some new cards to collect. I've noticed that Plasma Storm has taken over where the Boundaries Crossed packs had been, and that BC isn't in stock right now. I really want to get more BC packs since I really like that expansion. Hopefully, they'll come back in stock soon and then I can get more!
Since I went to Target to get the Pokemon cards, I also stopped by the toy section to see if they had anything cool in stock. And they did! They had a few more Series 1 and 3 LaLaLoopsy blind bags! And they were even cheaper than before! I got 4, two from each series.
I'm a little less pleased with these than I was with the Series 1 pulls. Obviously, because I got a double and none of the ones that I had wanted. The double will come live with me at work; though my computer stand (it's where I keep my little figures) is getting a bit crowded. At least now I have someone to swaps heads with with my Cow Girl.
Since I figured I should buy something useful from Target, I went to check out their hosiery section. And lucky I did! They had colored tights on sale!
My husband I also went to the comic book shop last night! They're open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, which is really nice since my husbands works pretty late. I got the third My Little Pony comic book:
Thanks for reading! I hope you continue to enjoy my posts and come back and read more!
