Divatress Hair Wigs

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine.

Wigs play an important role in fashion industry. They add life to flat and boring hair. They also enhance the look of celebrities who want to have different hairstyles in each show they perform or tv appearances. When choosing a wig that fits you, you should know what type you want, either you want to buy weaves, lace front, full wigs, half wigs, braids and ponytails.

It is also important which hair length you like, short, very short, medium and long lengths. Take note, Divatress has everything you are looking for. Tons of wigs to choose from. When you browse on their site you must feel like a diva, look like a diva once you find that very wig that best suits you.

Brands like Bobbi Boss, FreeTress Equal, Isis Collection, Janette Collection, New Born Free, Mowtown Tress and a whole lot more to browse and get you started with your search. You can also search those who are rated 5 stars and less by customers if that makes it easy for you.

As for my own preference, if I were to buy a wig, I would like to buy me a real human hair and pass the shoulder length with big curls on the tips, some hints of brown in it just like the one attached below my post. It just looks fabulous and fashionable and it shows my character when it comes to fashion.

Buy More for the Price of One

There is a new scent for Spring at Victoria’s Secret right now. It is called Tease Flower that costs $58 for a 1.7 fl. oz. Current promo is you get a free full-size tease flower lotion and a bath bomb when you buy any tease flower scent. Okay granted, the freebie is great but what’s even greater is when you buy a tease flower gift set for $70 instead of just one single item that cost too much!

My idea of this deal is, I bought the set which pictured below plus I get the same freebie as above. I had a $15 gift reward from Victoria’s Secret that made my total to come down under $60 including tax. You see, sometimes you’ll have to buy more in order to get more. If just bought that single perfume, all I could bring home that day was three items.

Fortunately for me, my mind acted quickly when I went shopping in VS store that I should just get the set that cost $40 more because I GET MORE OF what could’ve I paid for just one product. In the end, I feel I won!

Year-end Deals

In America, people tend to be busy looking for deals and steals on or after Christmas. Whether online or in-stores, a never-ending deals are expected but it is up to you whether to be tempted to go on a shopping splurge or not. Depends mainly on the budget of a person if she goes shop and drop.

As for me, although I have everything I need as of this moment, I still shop here and there but with limitation and if I have great coupons/gift cards to use.

First photo is the Clinique lipstick set I purchased on December 23,2016. Sold for $25 online and used $15 worth of Macy’s money/gift card, final out of pocket is $11.81 and it’s free shipping. Plus I earned 75 cents for shopping thru ebates before going to the retailer’s website. You should do that too because, ebates cashback can add up.

Second photo is the Victoria’s Secret gift set I bought in-store for 65% off. The pouch with mist and lotion, originally sold for $20, got it for $7, the big gift set was $35, came down to $12 plus. I used my $15 gift reward from them for reaching my minimum points. Ended up paying just $4.80 for both gift sets!

Lavender Beauty Gift Set

I love lavender, it smells good, it is relaxing and calming. A couple remembers me this Christmas and gave me this gift set. I love it and I hope they know I am appreciative of their thoughtfulness. I can really use this everyday and will enjoy it!

Thankful for this blessing, it’s not every day someone give me something.

Last week’s wet n wild cosmetics deal that ended yesterday was buy $10 worth of products and get $5 extracare bucks. There is a printable coupon for any wnw product for 50 cents and another 50 cents for nail product. I printed 12 of those and got two 50 cents coupon from Sunday paper that total 14 coupons I used at the register. Three wnw eye pencils I did not have coupons to use it with but had a $3 off $15 purchase cosmetics store coupons to stack with manufacturer coupons.

These will go in my balik-bayan box this September. I got a few cousins who will love to use these girly stuff when I come home. And seeing them happy and appreciative of what I give them is such a joy.

How I Got 2 Victoria’s Secret Free Full Size Bottle Perfumes

If you frequent in this blog, you would know that I am a big Victoria’s Secret shopper. You would also know the reasons why as I keep writing them over and over again.

It’s the only store I buy my bras, perfumes/mists and lotions, and other stuff from. Last week, I was able to avail their glitch online. Buy 2 sport bras for $29.50 each and entered the promos “EDP4FREE” and the other one I forgot for free shipping. I paid $63 plus including tax and received my two full size bottle of perfumes that would have cost me $110 if I were to buy them in full price. Not only that, I also received .53 cents from Ebates cashback for shopping through their site before checking out Victoria’s Secret site.

I love the new collection of VS sport bra, small size fits me perfectly and the material they used is decent enough to last for long.

2 sport bras and two full size bottle of perfume do not come by often so when I saw it, I did not hesitate to avail the glitch. It’s something that I would always go for when it happens because you would pay more if you were to do this in store.

Besides, free perfume and free shipping codes often are not stackable codes if not for the glitch.

Try This Swissvita Eye Lift Cream on Amazon

I love trying out new beauty products that are available on the market today. I am 32 and of course, I want to look and feeling good inside out. As for my facial care, I try to consistently use anti-aging serum, facial moisturizer and this one, eye lift cream that is water-based and most of all, paraben-free.

It may not reverse the little fine lines I already have around my eyes but at least it can delay the process of aging. A small pea-size of this cream to use everyday is good to treat both of my under eyes to slowly vanish dark circles too although I seldom get dark circles. I trust that this product does not use harmful chemicals because it has light color and has no smell at all. I have been enjoying using a small amount of this product now and will continue to do so until I use up in the squeeze tube.

I put this on first then followed with the usual beauty regimen I have and they mix fine. Dries up quickly and truly I feel that tightening of my under-eye skin after a couple of seconds being applied.

I encourage everyone to try this out and experience this product has to offer you, buy it on AMAZON for $30.

I am glad I got to try this product for free in exchange of my unbiased review. All opinions are 100%.

The Revlon Mascara Craze

So everybody in the couponing groups are posting their Revlon mascara haul from Target, Walmart and CVS. I am sharing mine here too. I only printed ten coupons from smartsource and made sure to use them all today as they are only good for today.

I did try the first CVS store I went to this morning but failed. The cashier couldn’t accept more than one coupon because she thought they were copied coupons while they’re not. Revlon allowed me to print two copies each browser and I used two computers!

Gladly, the second CVS store store I went to accepted all four $5 manufacturer coupons, combined that with $4 off of $20 purchase Revlon products. Deal this week is buy one $8.79 get one 50% off, I paid out of pocket $2.76 including tax.

The six remaining coupons were used in Walmart, their current price is $5.97 so, ended up paying just 97 cents each mascara. Happy shopper here.

I know I can’t use them all as I still have old mascaras from how many months ago I don’t know… but my friends, cousins and relatives in the Philippines can use them.

How I Scored This Rollerbal Victoria’s Secret Eau de Parfum

Getting freebies at Victoria’s Secret isn’t hard at all. If you follow them on social media or belongs to an FB group that posts deals and promos from stores, you can score yourself cool freebies from VS or other fave stores. How I scored this rollerball VS eau de parfum in store last weekend just by voting for VS’ new scent online that’s been going on and took a screenshot of it, showed it to the cashier at the register and voila! No questions asked, she handed me this nice scent perfume that I could wear once in a while. With no purchase necessary, I got this thing at least worth $10.

This is not the first time I got a freebie from them. If you are following my blog, you would know that. Thanks to VS for they know how to keep their customers happy and keep coming back to their store.

My New Favorite Lippy and Mascara from Covergirl Queen Collection

Below line of products is from Covergirl #QUEENCOLLECTION. I received them free complimentary for testing purposes from #Influenster.

There are only four things I would use on my face when going out, these are my sunscreen facial moisturizer, age defying serum, lipstick and eye liner. I am a simple woman and I don’t need a lot of make up in order to feel and look good about myself because I believe wearing my natural beauty is easier and if I get complimented with it, I’d be more prouder of myself than being liked by many because of my heavy makeup. I don’t know about you ladies but there’s no offense meant here.

Now, since I have tried this Covergirl Queen Collection False Lash Drama Mascara, looks like it is going to be added to my fave essential to put on before heading out to do errands. I have two other mascaras from Maybelline and Covergirl professional collection but I don’t use them as much maybe because I don’t get good beautiful natural-looking lashes from them when applied. But this new collection I just tried applying on, I fell in love with it right away. The result is instant long black lashes as you can see in the pictures below.

Also, I got another thing from the same collection which is a Stay Luscious Lipstick which gives me an all-day moisture and truly a long lasting wear. It stayed in my lip yesterday all day even if I had eaten once wearing it. Another good thing about this lippy is, it’s a new oil-based emollient-rich formula which gives me moisture without me applying for lip moisturizer. This one great lippy here is already has it plus I love its color. Not to be biased here, I like it more than my MAC lippies. Many say that MAC lasts all day, I somehow having a hard time to believe that. I have used mine, two of them actually a lot of times already yet, I don’t see it lasted all day.

As for the liquid foundation, I don’t use any form of foundation on my face. I like it to be naked with foundation but anyway, I am gonna try it on one of these days and I bet I won’t be disappointed with the product. I will post an update here whether I like it or not.
