Friday Features – Preparing My Wallet For Amazon Prime Day
July 13, 2018
Who is ready for some online shopping?! I don’t know about you, but I love Amazon Prime Day. They have great deals, free shipping, exclusive products, and best of all, I don’t have to leave my couch to shop. It’s one of my favorite sales of the year, so it definitely had to make my Friday Features this week!
Feature 1: Wallets at the Ready – Amazon Prime Day
While everyone is talking about the Nordstrom sale, I’m over here waiting for the Amazon Prime Day on Monday, July 16th. Prime Day is basically Black Friday sales on Amazon exclusively for Prime members. There are some insanely good deals on electronics, home & kitchen, clothes, beauty, and so much more. This year, they’re also doing exclusive Prime Day launches which are exclusive products launching on Amazon. Personally, I’m loving some of the Beauty launches like the COSRX Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream, Tarte Prime Pretties Collection, and Peripera Ink the Velvet Lip Set (all pictured below). They also have launches in other categories too which you can check out here. I also have my eye on some electronic deals (who doesn’t though). If you haven’t signed up for Prime membership, you can always get a free trial and get your shopping on during Amazon Prime Day!
Feature 2: Target’s New Product – Low Calorie Ice Cream
Many of you may have heard of Halo Top ice cream, or even Enlightened ice cream (my preference of the two). They’re known for being a low-calorie, low sugar, high protein ice cream with all pints ranging from 240 to 400 calories…for the entire pint! The only downside is that they tend to be a bit pricey at nearly $5 a pint.
Now, Target’s brand, Archer Farms, has released their own line of 6 different low-calorie, high protein pints. And, best of all, these flavors are different and sound amazing! The pints range from 330 to 380 calories and all contain 20 to 22 grams of protein. The six flavors are: Mint Cookies & Cream, Caramel Maple Bourbon Pecan (OMG YES), Cookie Dough, Chocolate Pecan Pie, Mini Donut (YES AGAIN!), and Chocolate Peanut Butter. I haven’t seen the price range for these yet, but I’m guessing they’ll be in the $4-$5 range. Click here for more info on the flavors! Run, don’t walk, to your closest Target store!
Feature 3: New Music Friday – Eric Church to Ariana Grande
One of my favorite Country artists, Eric Church, announced his new album and single release yesterday! His new album titled Desperate Man will be released October 5th, but he released the single “Desperate Man” yesterday. It’s a song filled with country mixed with a lot of classic rock. “Desperate Man” is the perfect song to blare in your car with the windows down. It’s classic Eric Church at his finest, and a sound I believe only he can really pull off. I really wish he would get more credit because he definitely deserves it with his talent and originality.
On the total opposite end of the music spectrum, we have Ariana Grande and Alessia Cara with new song releases as well. Honestly, I haven’t been a fan of any song Ariana has released off her upcoming album, but “God Is A Woman” is different. I can see this one being a really popular hit. Now, for a song I’ll have on repeat for at least the next couple of weeks. Alessia Cara released a new single called “A Little More”. Her voice is very recognizable and so, so talented. Check both songs out below!
Feature 4: New Skin Care – Lili Reinhart x Dermalogica Collaboration
Most people know Lili Reinhart from the CW TV show Riverdale (highly recommend the show!!). While that is where I first heard of her, she’s become quite popular in the social media community too. Lili Reinhart has opened up about her body image and acne struggles and often posts pictures of herself with acne cream on (relatable much?). On top of that, she’s pretty hilarious on Instagram especially with Camila Mendes (Riverdale co-star).
With her platform and passion for skin care, she teamed up with Dermalogica to bring us new products in the “Clear Start” line. The two products are the Breakout Clearing Booster and the Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask. The Breakout Clearing Booster uses Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, and Chrondrus Crispus Extract (from Seaweed) to “kill breakout causing bacteria within 15 minutes” and calm irritation. The Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask uses sulfur (love this ingredient in face wash!), kaolin clay, and apple fruit extract to open and clear pores. Both of these products are $21, and you can buy them online or at Ulta. Another Ulta exclusive, is that you can get a 10 minute Facefit Facial for only $10. You can learn more and watch a video here!
