After a casting call last week in Tampa, I decided to visit a nearby mall. Here’s what I picked up from Zara, Bath & Body Works, Forever 21, and bareMinerals during my first trip to Tampa International Plaza and Bay Street.
This stretchy knit top from Zara is probably my favorite purchase from the trip because I got it 50% off! Zara is one of those stores where I love their quality but cannot always afford their prices. While this white Jacquard sweatshirt is not suited for Florida’s spring weather, I could not pass it up at $7.95.
Bath and Body Works wallflowers have the best variety of home fragrances. I have the Waikiki Beach Coconut Shea Butter Body Cream and had to pick it up in the wallflower scent. I love summer scents, so I’m trying out Tiki Beach as well. Lavender Vanilla is a favorite for my bathroom and Black Teakwood (not pictured) was also a repurchase for my brother’s room.
Sandals are necessity, here in the Florida Heartland. A cute pair will never go to waste because they’re worn almost daily. These Forever 21 white faux leather sandals just screamed summer to me and were priced just right at $12.95. I also picked up black and white cheeky bikini bottoms for $4.99 each.
I stopped by the bareMinerals store to repurchase the Tinted Mineral Veil with SPF 25 because mine is almost finished. Yoly, one of their makeup artists, informed me of a future promotion where I could purchase 3 face products and a makeup bag for $62. This is a great deal considering most of their foundations are about $30. I decided it best to return for the deal so that I may get my tinted mineral veil and color matched for a new foundation all at once. Even though I didn’t purchase anything, Yoly gave me a few samples of their latest skincare line: Oil Obsessed Cleansing Oil, True Oasis Oil-Free Replenishing Gel Cream, and Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion. My color match appointment is tomorrow, so I’ll make a future post updating you on those details.
Which store do you find the best deals?
