Thriftiness ;)

So back to doing some things the way I’ve done before; hair, nails, and other stuff. 😉 lol

and since I’m back to coloring my hair myself I’d love to review Loreal’s new hair product: Mousse Hair Absolute. I’m giving it a 2 1/2 out of 10! 😦

It gets a least a two as it covers the gray ;), but this mousse product is very difficult to work with, one to cover your hair, two to rinse it out, and three today- second day after coloring and my hair feels ugh!! Like it has a helmet of product in and on it. I’ll be re-washing my hair tonight to get this feeling to go away.

The one perk that really caused me to purchase this-other than the coupon, is that it is good for more than one application. Meaning I was able to use it twice! Cost effective, but not at the price of feeling like ugh hair, ya know?  So yeah, 2 1/2 out of 10. 😦  and I like Loreal hair products. So I’m sad about this! 😦 (see)

and now onto doing my nails. Woohoo! I’ve just about got the old acrylics gone. I’m not ripping them off like I did last time. OWWW! I’m letting them grow off. But I am keeping them short and then using the black emery board to smooth down the area between my nail and that of the acryric nail. Yeah, boys might not understand this. LOL 😀  but the fun part is coloring my nails. Hubs can’t stand the smell of the polish and I don’t blame him. But woot! I have lots of polish and can have fun! well within reason. I do have to keep them professional for work. 😉

and then I received a coupon for 50 % off glasses in my email from my M Perks. Hubs needs glasses, and I made an appointment online through the Meijer’s website! Yeah, I like that!!


so the computer repair may be longer, his eyesight is more important than me being able to use the home computer. Yeah! I know…

Smoking; trying to quit, or save some moola


I have recently switched from real tobacco, to e-cigs.

I was able to buy and try a disposable Blu. One cig is equal to one pack. And omg, this one cig lasted me for a week. So if the cig was $13. to try, and I didn’t buy a pack at all last week, I saved $22. and didn’t miss the feel of holding a cig, or puffing away. What I didn’t miss, that is no longer an issue; the smells, the ashes, the accidental burning, having to freeze in the cold outside.
And a lot of friends that are allergic to cigarette smoke, they noticed I wasn’t stinky. lol 🙂

So far, this experiment is cool. It’s just educating ppl to the fact, that they aren’t ‘real’ cigarettes. I probably won’t be smoking in a theater any time soon. But when the craving hits, I can go into a bathroom and puff. lol reminds me of high school. only now, no real smoke!!

Now then the start up cost of this is comparable to a carton of smokes. But…the price of disposables could get really expensive. So just swallow the cost, $50 for the start up kit I bought. You get the pack, the chargers; both wall and USB. Yeah, you can charge your pack, as you surf the net. lol And in the starter kit, you get a couple of different ‘flavors.’ I like the cherry. There’s Menthol, regular, Java Jolt, Vanilla and the cherry crush.

Where this could get expensive, the cost of the replacement cartridges. However, sign up for the email newsletter, and you might get some deals-from the web shopping, or coupons for the stores that carry them. For me, Meijer and Wal-Green’s sell these.
As far as the cartridges go, Wal-Green’s sell out of the Vanilla quickly. Thankfully there is an internet site, with the capability of ordering online. Delivery looks to be within 2-3 bs days. But check it out.
Blu Cartridges

so if you’re looking to quit, I don’t know how well this would work…but if you’re looking to save some money, while you are still smoking, tired of ppl telling you ‘you stink’ or tired of going outside and freezing….switch. I’ve already figured out how much moola I am going to save.

now if only I could get a good deal as a sponsor of them. lol 😀
