It is soooooooo hot now. I know I was bitching before because it was cold, but things were pretty pleasant for two months, but now it is A BLISTERING HEAT WAY. 100+ degree temperatures. My parents finally caved and turned on the air conditioning yesterday, and the air conditioner ran pretty much non-stop for 12 hours to cool the house down. But now the house is regulated and the air conditioner now automatically turns off again! At least, until the afternoon, when it blasts for hours. XP
Also, to get away from the heat, I went out shopping yesterday. XD;; Nothing like spending the hottest part of the day in an air conditioned mall. I mostly just wandered around, though I did buy cheesy bacon fries to nosh on. Also, I had a coupon to GameStop for 20% used DS games, so I wandered in, hoping to find something good. And I did! I found a copy of Meteos for only $9.99, so the discount dropped it to like, $7-something. I'm so happy because Meteos is a puzzle game that I've been interested in, but it's out-of-stock/no-longer-printed, so I thought I'd have to pay alot for it. Lucky for me!
Saw a cute dress in a store for only $10 (on sale, I love sales) but didn't buy it because I needed a second opinion, and Aoi wasn't there with me. :/ She's my shopping buddy.
As for tips and bargains (since I always tend to know these things), here we go:
-- Sephora is currently giving away free samples of bareMinerals matte foundation, and a baby kabuki brush. It's absolutely free if you go to the stores and ask. I need to go back and get that, since I didn't know until after I got home and checked my email. Also, sign up for the Sephora Beauty Rewards club if you like their stores/products. Not only do you get special deals and sales, they give you a gift on your birthday. :3
-- Join the Godiva Rewards Club, too. I did! Just for signing up, you get a free piece of chocolate (including truffles!). And every month you spend at least $10, you get a free piece of chocolate. It's a good deal for me, because me and Aoi are shopping buddies and we usually split one of their Chocolixir drinks, which is $4.95, at least twice a month. So I will be getting my free delicious chocolate pretty regularly. *^^*
-- Este Lauder in Macy's will be having a special event around the 28th of July. They'll be giving out free samples of products and stuff. I don't know if you have to be on the list or something. I put my name down because I walked through Macy's heading for the shoe section, and the saleslady snagged me. I didn't want to buy the product I tested (though I'm interested) because I tend to have sensitive skin and certain things make my face go even more horrible than it already is. When I asked if she had any samples, she told me about the event.
Hmm... in other shopping news, I bought a cute wristlet from WalMart, of all places. I've been looking for one forever that matches my red shoes, and this was pretty close! Only $5 (on sale) too! And I didn't even spend money because I have a gift card. 8D! My mom saw it and said she wants one too, so I'll have to go back later this week.
