Bridal shower LOTD, Dolly Wink SALE, Kit Kats +

What a busy weekend...went to my first bridal shower of the year! I felt a little shy since the only person I actually knew was the bride-to-be...but the girls there were very nice as was the family so it was a pleasant all around experience! No toilet-paper dresses were constructed, but we still had a good time and a few laughs. :)

Makeup was natural - just some MAC Shroom & Moth brown (all time favorite MAC color - so sad that it was LE!!!) on eyes. Also, Darkness Kma9 lashes and a light sweeping of bronzer.

E.L.F. Products are now being sold at KROGER (a grocery store chain in the US) - that means more access to $1 products - not too many people know about this, so I'm sure the selection will be great. :) I saw makeup palettes there and TONS of brushes - so if you have had a hard time locating a Target that sells in-stock ELF brushes, check out your local Kroger! (I'm not sure if they are at ALL Kroger stores, but it was shocking enough for me to find them there at all!) They also stock the eyelashes.

***

Sasa.com is having a special promotion on Koji products - INCLUDING DOLLY WINK!!! All Dolly Wink products are 10% off - they currently have a decent stock of the products (lots of the lower lashes), the case, glue, and liquid eyeliner pen!

If you really want to try Dolly Wink, this is most likely the cheapest place you will find it on the web!!!


Promotion ends April 30th so hop to it to take advantage of some savings!

I finally was able to try the Sakura Matcha Kit Kat sent to me by the infinitely kind Sophia!

OH MY GOODNESS...this had to have been seriously the best Kit Kat I have ever tasted in my life! (Not saying much - I've had the milk & white chocolate Kit Kats of the states to date...lol!)

The WHITE chocolate is imbued with delicious & sweet matcha green tea flavor! The "sakura" part is actually a tiny hint of cherry flavoring. The wafer inside is thin, delicate, crispy and sweet. My mouth was craving more! Seriously, why can't Nestle be more creative here in the states???

*wistful sigh*

Everyone keeps saying they find ELF at Target, but I can't find it in Boston! And darn it, I no longer live near a Kroger. That would have been nice to pick up falsies while grocery shopping.

Susie said...

Mmm bridal shower food! Looks so yummy :) I've never heard of Kroger before :/ The Target near my house takes like months & months to refill their stupid ELF products! How annoying, right? Hahaha.

Man! There's so many sales lately! I want to try Dolly Wink! I've heard a lot of great stuff about their products. & those Kit Kats looks scrumptious! Mmm.

Lisa said...

Japanese Kit Kats rock, period. =)

sophia said...

Wow ELF at Kroger now too! We don't have Krogers here... I wonder if Safeway would have them? Haha. My fav product from them is the luscious liquid lipstick in Bark, have you tried it? I think it looks great on everyone!

I still have yet to place an order on sasa.com... hehe I still have face masks that were sent to me by a Texas sweetie ^_~

And I like the packaging on the individual wrappers of the kit kat! I actually really really like the American ones b/c I love milk choco! When I was like 8 years old, I bought my dad a king size kit kat for his birthday b/c he liked them hahahaha! I thought it was a great gift at the time... I bet he's glad he doesn't get those as gifts anymore :p

All that food looks delicous! Bridal showers are always a fun girly day =)

RicAdeMus said...

That food looks amazing. I wish bachelor parties were that nice. We open a bag of Fritos and some onion dip, play poker, and then someone thinks it's a good idea to smoke cigars and get drunk. Ugh!

I saw your comment on LOLanne's most recent post and agree completely--lottery winner is way to go! I fully trained and ready for that lifestyle. =)

Take care.

RicAdeMus said...

PS - I've got to try a non-chocolate KitKat one of these days.

Edwina said...

hmmm.. tempted to get the dolly wink lashes, but still think i shouldn't spend any more money on makeup :S

Rainy Days and Lattes said...

Awesome! It's hard to find ELF @ Target because not all Targets carry them and those that do run out of stock all the time :p I think I have enough ELF to last me a lifetime though :p

Love the MAC shadow! :)

Serena said...

Congrats to the bride-to-be!! I've only been to one bridal shower EVER... and it was my aunt's; I think I was barely 7. LOL. I think they used the wrapping paper and toilet paper to make a dress. I can't recall.

Moth brown looks like a really pretty color. I would've loved to check it out, too bad it's limited edition. =(

Kroger? I've never heard of that before. Sounds interesting.

The kit kats look so yummy!! I want to get my hands on that Matcha Kit Kat. I am determined too. Reading about how it tastes is making me crave it more.


<3 Serena.
