Ulta kindly sent me a $10 gift certif for my birthday and I used it for some basic things:
I will give more details about these products after this week - we celebrate my adorable GS's birthday and his presents are wrapped but I still have a Jurassic Park cake to build.

I have been wanting to try Prada's 'Candy' perfume as I liked a sample I received.  As a rule, I would shy away from a product that has a name that is too 'cutesy' .  But I am happy with this small purchase - it will not be an every day fragrance but will be nice for a change.  It is floral without being too sweet and not so large that I will tire of it before it is finished.

I also received a free Urban Decay eye shadow in 'Midnight Cowboy'.  It is too glittery for me as an eye shadow but used lightly, it will be fine for a brow highlighter.
(To be honest, I should just give it away - I know I won't use it !!!)

I finally got around to trying my new  L'Oreal Colour Riche Pocket Palette in ' Avenue Des Roses'.
I like the pale lavender and bronze colors - this will be fine all through fall.

I like this hairspray!  It is one of a zillion that I have but this actually works well without too much stiffness.  The product states there is caffeine in the ingredients - I don't know how that helps hold a style but I have been happy with this!
Finally,  a haircut!

Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!
