Sephora Haul & Freebies!

I shopped one of the best deals I have ever seen at Sephora last week, so of course I had to share! I got all of this for less than $80!

So, I was shopping on last week to repurchase my favorite PM Night Cream, the Estee Lauder Advanced Time Zone Night. It costs $78, but it is a staple in my skin care routine and I think it is worth it! I ALWAYS search to see where I can get a free gift with it, to make my purchase even more valuable, and because Estee Lauder offers a lot of free gifts, no matter what retailer you buy from - their website, Sephora, Nordstrom, Macy's, JC Penney's, etc. 

With any Estee Lauder purchase of $35 or more from Sephora, with the code VIBESTEE, if you are a VIB or Rouge member at Sephora, you could also get a deluxe sample set with more skincare products. I am not sure how long this code will last, so hopefully you can catch it if you are looking for it!! With it, I got 3 samples: the Advanced Night Repair Eye, which I am excited to try, the Advanced Night Repair Serum, which I LOVE, and the Revitalizing Supreme Light, which sounds like a miracle cream. It probably is, because it came in such a small tube and they probably want to get you (ME) hooked! You can shop all of these products below: 

THEN - I had 500 Insider points that I have been saving up for a good deal, which I can never seem to find IN the actual stores, and i saw that Amika hair products had a good one available called Amika: Set, Style, Extend. I have been dying to try these hair products because I have heard really good things from friends, I have heard they smell great, and duh - the packaging is cute. I am such a sucker for some cute packaging. So with 500 points, you get the following in sample sizes: Nourishing Mask, Bombshell Blowout Spray (which I am going to try today!), Touchable Hairspray, Dry Shampoo, and Dry Conditioner (say whaaaaa!?). Shop the full sizes below. Isn't the packaging SO cute!?

Don't forget to add your regular 3 free samples to your cart, and never forget to use Ebates when you shop - Sephora is offering 8% back! They usually offer 4-8% when you order online, so don't forget to take advantage of that. Hope you liked this haul. I gotta go organize my bathroom and put these things away! I will let you know how I end up liking the Amika products!

Have you tried any of these Estee Lauder or Amika products? Let me know!

Have a wonderful weekend friends! 



Military Jacket & Bordeaux Booties January #OOTD

I hope everyone is having a good 2017 so far. Mine has been off to a little bit of a rocky start, so I still have not posted my 2016 reviews, or any of my goals or outlooks for the new year! I am so sorry self and I am so sorry to my readers! Hopefully I will get around to it! I really need and want to. I have not posted any fashion or outfit of the day pictures in a while though, so I needed to get to that!
I hope you like this one as much as I do. It is just very "ME"!

I wore this outfit last week while shopping at the mall all day with my favorite shopping partner, my Mom! Everything was super comfy and I felt put together without being overdone! Love that feeling.

Exact shoes, shirt, jeans, jacket, and purse linked below. Just click the arrow to scroll through!

Necklace, earrings, and stack rings are from my subscription, and don't forget to use my code: thatmamagretchenxoxo for your 1st month free! I am obsessed with the bold statement necklace. I think it tied everything together nicely and was super comfortable to wear.

Bangles are Alex & Ani, sunglasses are from Firmoo, and single ring is from David Yurman.

Let me know what your favorite piece in your wardrobe is for this month & if you own any of these pieces I have on above! My fav right now is probably the boots!



Christmas Gifts Received

Happy 2017! I feel late on getting this post out, because I was sick the whole week after Christmas!

It is exciting to finally go through my Christmas gifts again and put them away in my home. I had been planning to do a new YouTube video to share these with all of you, but I still cannot stop coughing, so I am writing it all in a blog post so you don't have to hear my horrible cough (unless you already heard it on Snapchat - sorry)! I hope you enjoy my lists below. 

I love giving at Christmas, but I also felt super lucky to receive a lot of wonderful things from my boyfriend, family and friends this year. I highlighted some awesome things my wonderful gracious parents got me, what James got me (eee..that ring!!), some things I received from other family and friends, and then some of the items that James scored! 

From my Parents:

  • Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Bag - This is gold and wine colored and so cute. The quote on the back says "Give a woman the right makeup, and she can conquer the world." 
  • The Clever Cutter - This was so funny and also awesome because I like to cut chicken, veggies, lettuce, anything - in my kitchen, with regular kitchen scissors. So, my mom thought this was perfect! 
  • Stir Crazy Popcorn Maker - Well, I tried this last night and I have to say that I will never buy popcorn at the movies ever again. The butter melts on top and it is super quick to use!
  • Tarte Blush Palette (Similar) - The one I got was the color wheel, which was limited edition, and has 10 blushes. 
  • Henri Bendel Lavender Candle (Lavender Leaves) - This is my favorite scent ever and HB has the best smelling candles. They feel so luxurious to have burning in the master bathroom.
  • Henri Bendel Travel Bags - These are perfect for travelling and carrying beauty products and even accessories in! I cannot wait to put them to use. 
  • Victorias Secret Plaid PJs (Green & Navy) - I wore these last night and I got the "short" size, which was super cute and comfy.
  • Victorias Secret Sweatshirt (White/ Similar) - I got a cute white zip hoodie, I cannot find the exact one on the site, but this was super similar. So cute!

From James:

  • David Yurman Ring  (Morganite) - This ring is SO BEAUTIFUL you guys! This is my 1st David Yurman item ever, and I could not love it more. Actually, I want to wear it every day and sleep and shower in it, but I think you are supposed to take it off during those activities. It fits my middle finger on either hand perfectly and it sparkles so pretty in the light. You will be seeing a lot of this one! I love it. 
  • Sephora Gift Card - I have already purchased 1 item:
    • (ABH Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette) - I kept telling myself I did not need this palette that everyone has been raving about, but now that I had a gift card, I ordered it quickly and of course, it is amazing. I am not sure what else I will be buying with the rest of my gift card yet, but it is never hard for me to spend money at Sephora. 
Not pictured:
  • Sony A5100 Camera, Lens & Bag - I have been wanting a nice camera for the longest time! I am so excited to get to know and learn how to use this camera for blogging, YouTube videos, and in every day life to document my memories! It is white, which I love, the screen pops up so you can see yourself, and I got a longer lens as well. SO excited! 
  • Bose Aviation Headset - If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you might know that James renewed his pilot's license and we are back up in the air! I am so excited for new adventures in the air together, and this was sweet that he got me a super nice headset for the plane. 
  • Lululemon Gift Card - I want to buy a new pair of black legggings with this, so let me know if you have a favorite style!

James Received:

  • Crosley Record Player (Plus Records - From Me!) He set it up in his office, and he already started buying his own records for it. It sounds awesome, and I think he loves it! 
    Not pictured: 
    • Cash & Gift Cards 
    • Harley Davidson Detail Kit 
    Thanks for going through my show & tell today! I had so much fun wrapping, giving, and opening presents during Christmas. My love language is giving, so I love to give gifts, and I am SUPER appreciative anytime anyone gives me ANYTHING! Now, I feel the need to declutter old things and I am inspired to blog about my 2016 reflections and 2017 goals! I hope to have that up for you all this month sometime. 

    What did you get for Christmas?

    Did you get or do you love any of these items?
