Two Good Sales (and what I bought.)

I am absolutely not shopping! I am not buying things, nope no way. And then came the Really Good Sales:

First: BlueMercury is having an anniversary event - 20% off a purchase of $150 for BlueRewards members. This is the promotion for you if you're a fan of SkinCeuticals, Augustinus Bader, R+Co, diptyque and LAFCO. Now is the time to stock up on that expensive shit that you feel guilty buying but don't want to live without. I mean, listen. I really like a Target candle but I freaking LOVE a Lafco candle. I gave into this promotion because they had my favorite fall/winter candle in stock:

It's warm, spicy but not sharp at all. It's just winter-y and comforting without being outright seasonal. I just love it. I'm curious about the Spiced Pomander candle as well, but I think I'll wait until closer to the holidays for that one. I also bought my usual SkinCeuticals Phyto serum and an R+Co travel sized tube of the blow-out balm, which I've been wanting to try. 

Just a note: the discount code doesn't work on the Dyson Airwrap but it DOES work on the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer which I have and love and use every single day. (I, um, traded my Airwrap for the Supersonic hairdryer because I'm far too lazy to bother curling my hair. It was a solid decision.) 

Next up, Madewell! They're offering 25% off everything for Insiders (this is the time to buy a leather jacket, just FYI. Usually they're excluded.) I'd just been texting with Marianne about how I don't feel like Madewell's denim this fall is very interesting or tempting but half an hour later I was ordering this pair of Perfect Vintage jeans

While they aren't the bootcut or barrel jeans of my fall vision, they are: mid-rise, a dark wash, and straight leg. I mean, these are the jeans I will be wearing every single day if they work for me. We shall see! I was also quite tempted by these boots and this shirt-jacket and oh my god this leather jacket, but I resisted. For now. We'll see.

  1. LOVE a LAFCO candle!!! I always ask my husband to get me one at Christmas. In fact, that's how I discovered on Christmas Day 2020 that I had covid, when I opened my Lafco and thought it had no scent!
