Weekly Spending/Fitness Recap 5/2-5/8/2011

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and happy mother's day to the mothers out there :) 

This past week was busy, I was recovering from illness but still went to work, worked out a bit, made time for friends, did laundry and lots of chores, worked on BF's side business...and it was generally extremely busy. What bumped up the spending this week was obviously mother's day because I got gifts for my mom, my grandma (who practically raised me) and my stepmom. All gifts were well received and I got thank you calls proceeding Friday. I love giving gifts, that's probably my hugest flaw, and if that is indeed my greatest weakness that's not too bad for a flaw I'd say! 

BF and I hung out with friends on Saturday and spent a lot of money for a regular Saturday night but it was worth it. My friend is moving to SF and leaving us in SD because she got into grad school. I'm extremely happy for her but I'm trying to spend a lot of time with her before she leaves.

Lastly, there was a TaDa deal (there are too many group discount sites, can't keep track) where you buy $25 for $50 credit at SkinTerra.com. They are having a $30 off sale for May so I bought the Clarisonic Mia that I've been wanting for months now for a grand total of $94, originally $149+tax and I have to say it's absolutely WORTH IT! My skin is acne prone and I've noticed that this thing really cleans my skin and gets the make-up/dirt off completely, leaving me with skin that allows itself to breathe and absorb my moisturizer much better. Only time will tell but after a month or so I will do a review. I'm actually thinking of buying one for my mom for her bday which is coming up in July since I have a $25 off credit they sent me w/ my package.

I'm a huge gift giver as well :) it's nice seeing or hearing them light up when they receives my gift. I'm glad you had time to spend with your friend before she leaves because like Suze says people first then money then things.

What kind of gifts did you get for mother's day? $15 is a pretty decent cost. Just want to ask about gift idea if you don't mind. I know you mention flowers but how can you send them via USPS?

wow, you got a great deal on the Clarisonic Mia!! It's not the price that always counts -- it's the value. And if this saves your skin from acne, and you got $55 off, it's a great value. Way to go!

I have acne prone skin, as well.

I've heard of the clarasonic, but haven't thought of giving it a try. Looking forward to your review!
