Deals of the Week

22 Feb

Here are some of the deals of the week and these are the items that I picked up. I probably won’t have many of these posts as it does seem to be a bragging post that and the only things that I buy all the time is food. ^_^ So for those who live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada these deals are going to be held until this Friday which is Feb 26 and they are pretty good deals.

First up, I gotta mention the stores that I went to. The first place was Lemon Tree to get myself something you’ll see it later… then it was Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, and then Superstore.

The items:

The brushes are from Quo which is Shoppers Drug Mart makeup brushes… they even have their own line of makeup too! But anyways, those brushes were 40% off. So in total they were… let’s see… about $33CDN. If I bought it full priced it would have been $46CDN. Yeah… saved a lot of money.

From Rexall which is a chain of drugstores owned by Darrel Katz, also known as pharmaprix in some other Canadian places but what I actually got from there is the pressed powder which is N.Y.C. Translucent powder and the Maybelline Quad in Chai Latte. They were both 20% off and the total came to under $10. It wasn’t that much so compared to Shoppers I only saved about $3.

The last place that I went to is Superstore and they had a deal on Covergirl mascaras… not all of their mascaras but the professional and the exact collection. That and some crackers… hooray triscuits! They were 2 for $9.00 so I saved a lot there. Yippee! I’m excited to try them out. Both are in Blackest Black as my eyelashes are really… well being asian black.

So the special item that I got was this:

 This doll is a Momiji Doll. A pretty doll. Just for me. Her name is Rainbow she likes shopping, fashion, and long division. Just like me! There is only one place in Edmonton that sells these doll, I would very much like to get some more. Of course, ones that speak my personality. ^_^

Well, that will be it for today…. sorry for double posting.

New things

20 Feb

Trying out something new today.

 Finally got around to trying it out… the texture looks quite smooth with the exception of some berry bits like the seeds and stuff. Taste wise… I liked it my brother and sister did not. To me it tastes like blueberries with a tinge of the sour Acai berries. Now I haven’t tried Acai berries on their own so I don’t know if it is a likely comparison but the tartness in the smoothie does seem to come from the Acai berries. As for what’s inside the smoothie it contains a blend of 180 blueberries, 270 Acai berries, 2 Bananas, 1 3/4 apple, 3/4 pear, and 24 other berries (blackberries and boysenberries). As you can tell on the bottom of the bottle it states that a cup (250mL) is equal to 2 servings of fruits and vegetables.

I can’t believe that it has 270 Acai berries… 270!!

Onto homework and I probably won’t post anything tomorrow. I will see how work is played out during the week back at school.

Spring is here!

18 Feb

I took a bunch of photos today… well I don’t know if it’s considered a lot but it a lot to me?? Either way here they are…

The stairs that I had to climb this morning… x8 = 94 stairs (yes that is exact) and a common sight that we all know and see everywhere. Anyone want to guess?

     

Yes. there were dandelions on the ground… taped… darn we can’t get rid of them so easily.

Since it’s spring what is spring preparation without a little Spring cleaning? So in order for me to do that I ended up going to get some organizational items and ended up with so much more.

 So the stuff that I bought as you can tell is a panda garbage can, razors, soap from Rocky Mountain Soap Company, Clay mask from Botanics, a kid-proof lighter, Oh Henry!, 2 pepperoni sticks, EOS shaving lotion, organizational holders, Got2B Guardian Angel Heat Protectorant, Botanics Skin Brightening Cleanser, and a PC Blue Menu Blueberry and Acai Smoothie. Yup, lots of stuff. I’m going to do a review on the Smoothie later when I drink it with the rest of my family. ^_^

That is basically it for today… going to do a bunch more work mainly Chemistry and watching Youtube videos but yeah, until next time.

Popcorn Love

12 Feb

Pretty good day today… everyone loved the Soba that my group prepared for everyone! Hooray I’m a good cook! It is basically a party day today… gotta make sure that I don’t gain any weight from all this splurge eating. At least now it is Reading Week. A whole week off of school! So much to do so little time! Gotta make a list but to celebrate the week-long break I decided to celebrate with popcorn and not just any kind of popcorn… MINI POPCORN!

     

Yummy stuff!! I discovered these minis while flipping through the new Blue Menu book thingie at Superstore. Man, they are really yummy and proportioned out really good! Only 100 Calories per bag better than the larger one pictured above which is about 250 Calories per bag. Though from now on I think I will still be getting both kinds because I mean the smaller ones will  be for me and the larger ones I will definately share with the rest of my family. I love popcorn.

So that will be it for today, I am going to karate class later on today and then going to go over to my aunts house to celebrate the new year. Hooray Lunar New Years!
