So today is Columbus Day, which means us bankers don’t have to work! Ahhh.. how rewarding those bankers hours feel on these long weekends 🙂
Unfortunately for my bank account, free time in my language translates to online shopping. I was browsing through my emails this morning when I noticed that Ulta is having their ‘Gorgeous Hair Event‘.
Basically, for each day of the month from October 2nd through 22nd, different hair products will be highly discounted. I figured it was worth the 25 minute drive and yes, yes it was.
From the Gorgeous Hair Event sale, I did pick up the Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor.
I’ve been using bleach on my hair working towards a blonder balayage, so my hair stylist recommended a hydrating mask and I thought this one sounded fit. It smells like banana bread and can be used in or out of the shower!
I also repurchased my beloved Living Proof PhD Dry Shampoo. It kills me to spend $22 for a bottle of dry shampoo, but believe me when I say, it is WORTH IT.
The first time I tried this product I didn’t like it. I didn’t believe the hype that it ‘cleans’ the hair along with volumizing it, but friends, it does! However, this dry shampoo definitely is pricey and I don’t use it every time.
Staying on the subject of hair, the final hair product I purchased was the Marula Oil Rare Oil Treatment Light by Paul Mitchell. I go to a Paul Mitchell focus salon so I was already familiar with their Marula Oil line and the benefits of the products.
I was happy to see that they made a ‘light’ version – my hair is very fine and most oils make my hair appear greasy. I’ve been using various types of oils on my ends for years, and was searching for a new one to try. It was on sale so I figured it was meant to be! 🙂
Lately, my mom has been on a lash kick. She recommends Revlon for those of you girls who are into lashes. Ardell was buy one get one half so I got two to try.

I’ve attempted lashes in the past but never had good luck with them. I always felt as though they were hard to apply and looked fake. My friend is getting married in two weeks so I figured I’d give lashes one more shot!
Last Ulta visit, I fell in love with a highlighter I purchased from the brand Makeup Revolution. The price was so good, and the product was even better!
I figured I’d try their matte blush and hope it was as impressive as their highlighter! Pictured is the color ‘fusion’.
On my way to the register I noticed a display of large weekender style bags. They were the Ulta brand, and came in a metallic gold and a chocolate brown. They were heavily discounted from $50 to $10!
I’m not sure if these were a promotional bag for their hair product sale, but this bag is awesome! It’s huge, zips closed, and has a shoulder strap. It’s the perfect carry on bag or weekend getaway bag. $10? Still so pleased with this purchase.
Overall, I lucked out this trip! Almost all of these purchases were on some type of sale, which justifies it that much more, right girls?
’til next time!
