Hi! I did some Cyber Monday shopping yesterday and thought I'd share my purchases here on the blog. Aside from the items shown above I also did a bit of Christmas shopping.. but those things have to stay secret for now;)

It's been working out well for my finances (for sure!) but it was fun to do a little splurging yesterday, especially with all the great deals I got.
The hardest thing was not hitting any of the makeup sales because I already have
