More awesome clearance at Target!

I'm starting to think that maybe my little family should just set up camp in Target. Maybe we can just build a little fort in the back and live there so I can swoop in on all the great deals. I could just go on and on about how much Target has stolen my heart... but I won't. I went there 2 times in the past 5 days... gimme a break! I usually only go to Target once or twice a month, but my friend asked if I wanted to meet her there and I couldn't resist. Crazy lady over here, had to go visit her beloved. Good golly am I glad I went! Target it having even more amazing clearance and if you didn't get a chance to read my last post about their clearance I will link it HERE! 

Let's see what I got!

(2) 2 Packs of Dawn Platinum Dish Detergent on clearance for $2.48, retails for $4.99
I didn't have any coupons but at $1.24 each for a huge bottle... I can definitely live with that! 

Finish Dishwasher Tabs on clearance for $5.48, retails for $10.99
= $1.82 per box! That is a great price considering these retail for around $5 each! 

Nothing to exciting this go around, but I love me some good deals on household stuff.

What great deals have you found this week?

Giveaway time!!! Extended to Monday March 10!

Hello, my lovely readers! 
I hope you guys are all having a wonderful week! I am super duper excited to announce my very first giveaway! I was offered the opportunity to host a giveaway compliments of Montagne Jeunesse featuring 3 of their single use Clay Spa Fabric Face Masks! I have tried this brand quite a few times now and I will be the first to admit that their face masks are pretty amazing. The fabric masks are my favorite because they are not messy like traditional clay masks, they are extremely relaxing and they really do work! I love the Montagne Jeunesse  brand because they do not test on animals and they focus on minimal impact on all forms of life when manufacturing their beauty products. Their company ethos is the "Conservation of Energy, Protection of Animals and the Environment." Sounds pretty darn great to me, no animal should have to be harmed for anyone to get pampered a bit. Am I right? 

You can learn more about the Montagne Jeunesse brand at the following places!

There will be up to 3 lucky winners, depending on how many people enter this giveaway. Obviously the more people who enter the more prizes, so ask your friends and family to come on over and enter this giveaway!

Here is what the winner(s) will receive! 

3 Clay Spa Fabric Face Masks including: 

* Glacial Clay Spa
* Dead Sea Mud Spa
* Red Earth Clay Spa

This giveaway will be open for about 2 weeks starting today February 24 and ending on Monday March 10.
All winners will be chosen at random and only one entry per person.

Great finds at Target today!

I had to get my Target fix in for the week and today was that day. I have not bought this much stuff at Target in SUCH a long time. I used to go crazy in that store before I became a stay at home mom. Ever since I stopped working and bringing in money I really don't like to spend it... guilty. I am a lucky lady considering my adorable hubby-to-be would let me buy anything my heart desires, but still I don't. I am a very frugal person and today I definitely splurged. My birthday is in 2 weeks so we'll just use that as my excuse... I am going to be 25! I feel so old! Any-who onto the super great goodies I found today!

There were TONS of women's clothing on clearance, I'm talking at-least 20 racks full! I hardly ever buy myself clothing but I have really been wanting some basic v-neck tee's and these were on clearance for $5 each, originally $10 each. So I figured why the hell not. If you know someone who's preggy they had tons and tons of maternity clothes on clearance from $2.70 and up. 

Ooooh this is my favorite part! I am such a sucker for the beauty isles... I just cannot stay away! As you guys knows I am trying to use more natural beauty products, even though I still love my non-natural beauty items. So when I saw these Yes To brand items on clearance I was way too excited. 

Olay Bar Soap $0.99
Use $1 off any Olay body wash, bar soap, or hand and body lotion products including Simply Olay (excludes travel/trial sizes) exp. 2/28/14 
*Picture of coupon below*

Yes To Grapefruit 2 pack with exfoliating body wash (retails for $9.99) and brightening facial towelettes (retails for $5.99) on clearance for $4.98!!!

Yes To Blueberries 2 pack smoothing daily cleanser (retails for $9.99) and cleansing facial towelettes (retail for $5.99) on clearance for $4.98!!!

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in 290 Precious Gold regularly $4.44 on clearance for $0.36 
Use $1 off any Rimmel London Product exp.4/30/14

Use *Target Coupon* $1.50 off  Biore facial care item (unknown expiration date)
= $0.04! :) 

 Every time I go to target I see these adorable clips for Eva and I never buy them because she won't keep clips in her hair. I saw that they were on clearance from $1.69 to $1.18. These are already so inexpensive even when not on clearance and I am glad because she already lost one on the way home from the store. But they do look awfully cute in her hair! 

Here are pictures of some of the coupons I used today, to help you get a better visual of what your are looking for. 

If you love Target as much as I do or you just love a good deal you should go asap and get some fun stuff for yourself or your family!

Bath and Body Works and Sally's Beauty Supply Goodies!

I recently got the chance to be a hair model for an old friend of mine named Carla. She works at this killer salon, Melrose and McQueen that's located in Inman Park in Atlanta. I seriously had THE time of my life. I had 4 different people working on my hair and they were all so sweet and fun! They let me bring Eva along and every time she got fussy they all ran over to her and played with her or handed her a toy or snack. It was honestly the best salon experience I have ever had, and the fact that they were so awesome with my 2.5 year old was so so great. The did a balayage on my hair, which is where they basically paint on color with no foils. It let's the artist have fun and place the color exactly where they want to. It ended up being exactly what I wanted and I didn't even know what I was getting myself into! I stopped coloring my hair about 2 years ago because I hated the upkeep, but I was definitely looking for a change and when I got this opportunity I jumped on it! My hair looks pretty awesome, its got 2 different types on blonde running through the bottom and underneath of my hair, sort of like an ombre but pretty subtle. So now when it grows out it really doesn't need any upkeep, which is totally up my alley! I am VERY low maintenance when it comes to my wild, frizzy, long curly hair, so this is the perfect hair color for me. I just want to say thanks again and again to Carla and her wonderful friends at Melrose and McQueen Salon! You guys are so sweet and crazy talented and I really loved the whole experience! Ever since I became a Mom I never do much for myself anymore so it was really nice to get to do something for me for once. If you live in the Atlanta area I highly suggest Melrose and McQueen Salon, and make sure you ask for Frankie because she is pretty darn amazing. ;) 

I have been reading up on how to keep my blonde hair looking great and I came across something called Purple Shampoo. It is literally a shampoo that is purple, and it is supposed to take away any yellow or brassiness that tends to happen to blonde hair over time. I read reviews on a ton of different brands on and I found that this particular brand had the best reviews. This is the Generic Value Products Conditioning Shampoo and you can find this at Sally's Beauty Supply for $6.59. This is a generic form of the Clairol Shimmer Lights Shampoo that is half the size and retails for $8.49. Now any of you who know me well are probably thinking you spent money on shampoo? haha Yes! I did! Most of you guys know that I am a big couponer, and I very rarely spend more than $1 for shampoo, most of the time I get it for free. But I figured I may as well try this out and see if it helps prolong the life of my new blonde balayage. I will be sure to let you guys know if this stuff really works! 

I was checking up on facebook this morning while I was waiting for Eva to wake up and I found a great deal at Bath and Body Works! This deal is only good today so make sure you go asap if you are interested in getting a free full-size body spray! All you have to do is go HERE! and click claim offer and the coupon code will be sent straight to your email. This offer is for a free full-size Mad About You Diamond Mist Body Spray with any purchase. I wanted to spend the smallest amount possible so I purchased a PocketBac hand sanitizer in Garden Strawberries for $1.75 and got the body spray for free! My total after tax was $1.87. Both items smell delicious as most of Bath and Body Works products do and you really can't beat that price for a big bottle of body spray. Yes, the body spray has glitter in it which I am not a fan of but I tried the tester and the glitter disappeared after about 30 mins. You have about 3 hours left to use this coupon, so I suggest you go now if you are interested! I also got a coupon for a free item of your choice with any purchase of $10 or more to use between February 17- March 9! 

Happy Valentines Day! I get to spend the day with my daughter and nephew... pretty lucky! :)

Household, baby, and pet products we've used up + reviews!

I'm back with more products we've used up recently and our opinions on each product! I find these posts really fun to write and read because it gives you an idea of what you should and shouldn't spend your money on. This post contains pet, baby, and household products that my family has used up in the past month or so. Let's see what's worth your money, shall we? 

Pet Products 

Bitter Yuck No Chew Spray
This stuff is absolutely disgusting but that is what it's supposed to be. This is marketed for cats, but we used this on our dog Crash who has terrible skin allergies. He is always itching and biting but after applying this he stopped biting as much. Crash definitely has an acquired taste and he would still bite himself a little bit but this definitely helped at least 50%. My only complaint is that the spray nozzle sucks, it doesn't spray it just shoots a straight line, which makes it really hard to apply. Also, when you spray this be prepared for it to float into the air and get into your mouth.Yummy! It's really a nasty taste so be careful when applying this and keep your mouth closed! This is an all natural spray and can also be used on plants, wood, drapes, and furniture as well as your pet!

Greenies Treats
I got these treats complimentary from and my dogs loved them! These treats claim to fight tartar buildup and plaque, freshen breath and maintain healthier teeth and gums. This bag contained 10 treats so I am unable to tell you if these really helped with my dogs' tooth health, but they sure did like them. Sadly I will never purchase these because this small bag retails for $10.00, that price is a just a little, no a LOT too steep for my families budget. I am really grateful to the Greenies brand and for allowing my dogs to try these treats! Thank you very much! 

Baby Products 

Babytime! Soothing Cream 
I got this from my sister who knows how much I love organic products, thanks so much Iqui! I used this on my 2 year old daughter, Eva, and we really liked it! It's unscented which I love, organic, and nice and thick. My daughter has little bumps on her arms and thighs, the Dr. says it's not eczema and it doesn't seem to bother her at all. I was hoping this lotion would cure her little bumps, but no such luck. I would definitely use this lotion again, but I do wish it came in a bigger container. At 4 ounces we went through this in about a month, and at about $11.00 I would like for it to last a whole lot longer. 

Johnson's Natural baby Shampoo
Please do not purchase this! I got this for Eva when we were on vacation and lost her soap somehow on the way. This was the most "natural" product I could find that wasn't a rip off. It was fine for a while, but one day Eva dumped half the bottle into the tub rubbed it all over her face and she got some sort of crazy red chemical burn all over her precious little face. I rubbed her down with coconut oil and the rash went away in about an hour. I don't know how a baby product could contain something so harsh that it could burn your child's face. I ended up using this on my makeup brushes. I do not recommend the Johnson's brand at all after that experience and I highly suggest you don't buy this product. 

Househould Products

PartyLite tealight candles 
These were in the scent Be Lively and although I can't recall what they smelled like I love PartyLite candles! I got these from my Mom who used to work with someone who sold PartyLite and I really enjoyed them. PartyLite is extremely expensive in my opinion so I would never purchase them but I will gladly accept them as a gift., hehe. These candles had a great scent throw, and lasted a surprisingly long time for being such small little tealights. 

L.A.'s Totally Awesome Power Oxygen Base Cleaner 
This is just Dollar Tree's generic form of OxyClean. I use this in my homemade laundry detergent/booster and I really liked it. It's $1.00 versus OxyClean's $5.00 container that is the same size. Of course I will save $4.00 and buy the generic, I have no problem with that and you shouldn't either! (;

XTRA Fresh Cotton Breeze Laundry Detergent 
Why are some people such laundry snobs? Can someone please explain this to me? You can buy some Tide which a lot of people love for like $12.00 or you can buy this XTRA which works just as well for about $3.00. No, this detergent doesn't leave you clothes smelling like detergent but I like that. I hate when I am wearing my clothes and I smell like laundry soap. I want to smell like nothing. I guess I am just weird, but that's what perfume is for. Anywho, this detergent works great for clothes and cloth diapers and I will continue to buy the cheapest detergent I can find.

Total Home 2x Concentrated Laundry Detergent
I got this for free and it worked perfectly fine. As you can see I don't care what brand it is as long as it works! 

Gain Dishwashing Liquid 
I am however a total Dish soap SNOB! I really love Dawn and Palmolive dish soaps. They seem like they are the only ones that really suds up and get stuff super clean. This Gain soap was just ok, it was pretty runny and it definitely could have foamed up a whole lot more. I feel like I went through this bottle 3 times quicker than I would have a bottle of Dawn.
