L'Oreal Paris

Dear Diary,
Just so you know sometimes L'Oreal has free samples that you can sign up for. And right now is one of those times; I believe there are a couple of samples to be had.
So what are you waiting for?

Call me Lulu!

Dear Diary,
You can now officially call me crazy or better yet Lulu! Why you ask? Well cause I decided on a whim to go to the Lululemon Athletica Warehouse Sale in Hamilton this past weekend. And believe it or not I waited 2 hours plus some to get into the sale. So therefore I believe you can call me Lulu!
If you're not aware of Lululemon; it's a high end Vancouver based Canadian company that sells athletic/yoga type clothing. You may wonder what a frugal lass like me was doing at this type of high end clothing sale. Well you can call me frugal but I do appreciate quality when I see it and I do sometimes splurge on quality items especially if they can be had at a reasonable price. While I found the prices to be reasonable, I didn't go crazy or Lulu with my spending. In fact I just bought 2 items.
Would I go again? I doubt it cause that frenzy kind of shopping doesn't really suit me even if there are great deals. That type of frenzy in fact sends me in a tailspin and I can't focus on why I was there in the first place. It was amazing that I was even able to make a purchase!
But dear diary I'm glad I went cause it was an experience of sorts. You just had to be there cause I can't really explain what it was like. And I am really happy with my purchases; the shorts I bought are the most comfy workout shorts I've ever had and I'm sure the capris will be the same.
All Lulued out

Free Mens Mini Degree Deodorant

Dear Diary,
Just came back from the Beer Store cause we had a bunch of empties to return. Not that I drink that much beer. But I do have this tendency to pick up empties on daily jaunts here and there! Would you not pick up a nickel or a dime if you saw one on the road or sidewalk?? Well in my books picking up empties is pretty much the same thing. I just can't walk by them and not pick them up. We're not talking pennies here you know but for the record I pick pennies up as well. Every time I see a penny this rhyme goes through my head; "Find a penny pick it up, throughout the day you'll have Good Luck". And I'm not one to go messing with luck let me tell you.
Have to tell you a story about picking up empties. Once last winter on my walk home from getting a haircut, I picked up a bottle with a bit of frozen beer in it and stashed it in a bag that I carry with me just for this purpose. And it remained frozen throughout my walk home. But closer to home I remembered I needed to got to WalMart to pick up a few great sales. Got my items pretty quick, tossed them into my shopping basket with my beer bottle discreetly placed in the shopping basket in a platic baggie and waited in line to pay for my purchases.While waiting in line I suddenly became aware of a strong beer odour and to my horror noticed this pale brownish liquid dripping from my shopping basket. Yikes my frozen beer was no longer frozen! Was anyone else aware of my predicament? Just kept my head low, paid for my stuff and got the heck out of there as quickly as I could.
But anyhow I digress! Just wanted to tell you that today I picked up some free mini mens Degree Deodorants at the Beer Store today. They are a great size for travel. Get them while they
last. Oh and they had coupons for the products as well.
