So opposite of Monday, I am here to put a smile on your face 🙂 So today I am sharing a funny story along with a super cute outfit (duh!) 🙂
So last month I was invited to one of my favorite retailers to get my makeup done courtesy of a brand. Of course I said yes because what girl doesn’t like getting dolled up?!
Naturally, the makeup artist was amazing and the way she described each product had me asking myself why I didn’t have this stuff in my life already. From the moisturizer down to the eyeliner, I needed everything.
being financially conscious not wanting to hear it from my husband I refrained from buying all the brushes I probably would never use again and selected the handful of items that I absolutely told myself I couldn’t live without. I was feeling pretty good about my purchase…that was until I got to the register. She rang up my 5 items and told me my total was $570.
Look, this girl likes to splurge every once in a while but that purchase was not something I was planning for and I literally came in for a “complimentary” session LOL. So of course, I didn’t want to “cause a scene” so I smiled, and
happily purchased my new items that I thought “better be made of 24k gold.”
As soon as I walked away, I was having total buyers remorse and knew I could not keep these items and feel good about it.
So I met Brandon at church that day and as soon as I walked up I was like “FYI, you’ll probably see a charge for $570 worth of makeup but I don’t think I’m going to keep it”.
Of course he laughed and asked why would I purchase it if I knew I didn’t want to keep it and naturally my response was “I didn’t want to cause a scene” LOL
Later that week I told my sister and niece the story and funny enough my niece had a recent similar story so now our inside joke is “I didn’t want to cause a scene.”
Have you guys ever done anything like this before?
*Update- the facial crème ended up being $350 which I didn’t know at the time so that’s why it ended up costing so much! I kept everything else because I could justify that but $350 for moisturizer? I’ll just botox. 🙂 JKJK babe.
