I am borrowing this blog post type from my friend Danielle over at Dani Writes Reviews. She has a similar type of post on her no buy about what she has bought that month. I really like this sort of post when you don’t really have enough things purchased to do a haul post. I have collected things here and there over the course of April and here is what I have purchased:
Royal and Langnickel Moda Prismatic 4PC Face Perfecting Kit
I had a $10 Walmart gift card from signing up with Ebates and making my first purchase and I also had $2.75 from bottle deposits, so I only spent $5 on this set of makeup brushes out of pocket. I only tried them once and I am really impressed with the big 801 brush. It buffed out my foundation flawlessly in 60 seconds. I am not even joking. I have never done my foundation that fast before and my skin looked more flawless than when I used a Beauty Blender to blend out my makeup.
Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation in Medium
I got this in the Walmart clearance section for $6.50 which is 50% off of the original price. I really wanted to try a more matte cushion foundation. Unfortunately, this color is way too dark for me and I will be using this as a contour color instead underneath my foundation. I actually found a foundation that I really enjoy that I am hoping to pick up in May. This would go great underneath that one.
Equate Wedge Sponges
You cannot go wrong with cheap sponges infused with vitamin E for $1.88 for 32. I use this to blend my concealer and to tap on liquid highlighter. They are good quality and I am thinking of using one for nail art, specifically with glitter. I heard they are really good to get an opaque coat of glitter.
Paw Patrol Reusable Plastic Plate
Dean loves Paw Patrol, but he isn’t old enough to use a plate yet. He just likes to throw it.
Max Studio Pet Bed
This pet bed was only $16.99 at Marshalls. The dogs needed a new bed that would fit both of them in there at the same time. This is still roomy with the two of them in there. They love it and will still fight for it, even though there is room for three.
Fido’s Diner Stonewear
This is their new water dish. No more using my bread pans to give them water. It is cute and deep. They both share the water and will actually take turns. It’s cute!
Yankee Candle in Tropic Island Breeze
This was a great candle. It was very tropical and coconutty, while still being very light and refreshing. Sadly, this candle died, when my dad dropped a can on it and the top of the glass shattered. I’m heading to Marshall’s to try to find this one again. If you can find it, I would give it a good sniff. It was worth the $13 that I spent on it, even though it didn’t make it through. It is also a huge ass candle. It’s 22 oz of candle and I saved a few bucks on it. I never had a Yankee Candle before, now I know what the fuss is about.
Clothes for Dean and Me
Dean’s new clothes are from Macy’s size 12 months and they were $11.99 each. My long sweater tunics are from Forever 21 and they were $11.99 buy one get one free. Dean and I still need more clothes. We need more summer clothes. You might see a few shopping sprees in May, because a. It’s my birthday and b. I really need more clothes. I only have a Fall/Winter wardrobe right now. I decluttered a ton of my clothes that don’t fit anymore.
I think I’m going to start a fitness series to keep my weight loss goals on track and to keep on top of my exercise goals. I think I’ll make an intro post and then update once a month.
With Love ❤

The candle seems to be really nice. I love the coconut scents. Such a pleasure being surrounded by candles. I think I have way too many 😛
You can never have too many candles. I used to have 6 to 9 candles and now I have three. One almost done and two freshly bought. I love the glade seasonal candles. I need to build up my candle stash. I tend to get tired of the same scent so I usually rotate through them. I’ve been into the minimalist thing, but I still want a ton of candles.
Marshalls is a good place to get those pet beds. We had one for Louis that he liked for like 3 weeks but then it went to Ellie. They’re super fluffy.
For sure! Louie doesn’t like beds?
He’s always weird about things like that, he really loved the dog bed that was originally for Ellie and then my mom bought him one and he used it for a couple weeks, and then it went to Ellie when hers wore out. He’s never really liked toys he can sit in or anything like that. He does like some pillows though. He loves Beth’s but not mine, but loves the Cinderella blanket that’s on my bed more than other blankets, but he switches.
Lol. He’s a funny boy. 😻
Pets are funny. They always go weird stuff.
