I'm Baaaack!!! Plus Target Beauty 25%+ off!!!!

        So, I know it's been months since I have last posted. I never realized that doing the haunted house with my husband would take so much of my time as well. Not that I minded doing it because I'd do anything for my husband, but it really turned our world upside down. But now that it's over, we can get back to a normal life. I can actually put makeup on, shave my legs, cook dinner, etc,. lol And yes, I said it, shave my legs. You have no idea how much I took that task for granted until all this. But I have to admit it was all worth it in the end. Everyone that went through it absolutely loved it. Those that doubted us got it handed to them. We found Amazing actors to be in it as well. And the best part, we now have an extended family with them. We really could not have asked for better actors, we were truly Blessed. They took our finished haunt to a new level and then some. So my gratitude and appreciation totally goes out to them from the bottom of my heart. And if you all are interested in what haunt we did it's Factory of Horror. It was a lot of hard work, but in the end we were told by all that it was the best and most detailed haunted attraction that they had ever been to. We were even told by one couple that had just gotten back from a trip to Universal Studios that our haunted house was even better than theirs. That is a huge compliment, especially for our first year in production. Ok, enough about our haunt and on to newer things.

        Well, now that I'm back I will start posting more deals, hauls, recipes, etc,. It will be slow at first because of course this is the Holiday Season and we have a lot going on for that as well as trying to get things back in order around here from being busy elsewhere. But, I'll be around and hopefully now we can also start working on my studio again so that I can start back to work on my own projects. You have no idea how much I miss crafting. It's been almost 3 years now since I first gave up my former studio to build a bedroom for my stepdaughter in that area of the house. So hopefully we can get back to work on it now and I can get back to that soon as well. So for now I'll do what I can to create beauty through makeup, cooking, etc,.

        Anyway, I just wanted to pop on for a few and let you all know what's been going on and let you know that I'm back. I have a haul for you too that I'll be sharing from Ulta, Target, Walgreens, etc,. Just a few things I picked up because I was making other purchases and to get free shipping I needed to add a few more items to the cart. Like I said before I would rather buy more products that pay for shipping. :) But that's just me. I did get good deals on them though. I also have a nail art post to share, an empties post and a vinaigrette recipe to share. So a few things in the works. So "Stay Tuned" for all of those. Don't forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me on all of the social media sites.

        Let me know if you are looking for something in particular this Holiday Season that you want a good price on and I'll will find the best deal I can for you. And I'll post any good deals I come across. Oh, you know what? I just remembered I got an email from Target today that if you shop makeup online that there is a coupon code to get 25% off. I guess I can go ahead and post that for you as a jumpstart on getting back into the swing of things. Who doesn't love 25% off of makeup? :) So just got to Target.com, but don't forget to hit up Ebates first of course to get your cashback as well. And if you follow the link I provided you will get anywhere from $5-$20 bonus cashback on your first purchase made through Ebates. Target is 2% cashback right now. Plus when you shop online you only pay about half the tax because you only have to pay state tax and not local tax. Plus if you use your Target Redcard you will get an additional 5% off. So in the end you are talking over 30% off. Also don't forget to check for any other coupon codes on RetailMeNot.com and check to see if there are any online coupons for Target Beauty items on their coupons pages. Sorry, I don't mean to go on and on, but I Love saving money and helping others to save money. It's like an adrenaline rush or a high for me to get the cheapest price that I can for something that I want. lol

        Ok, so I'm really going this time. lol Let me know what you all have been up to in my absence, would love to hear from you. Or if you have anything you want me to review or tips and tricks, etc,. So, until next time!!! Tootles!!!

        Huge Hugs and Blessings to All!!
