Cross Border Haul
The hubby and I took a day trip across the border this week. I managed to get some stuff at ULTA, Target and Trader Joe's.
First off we went to ULTA, I wanted some Lorac items, but sadly their holiday sets weren't in yet.
I saw before going that Ulta had exclusive holiday sets from Too Faced and Tarte, so I decided to get one of each.
Over at Trader Joe's I succumb to pumpkin spice madness. No kidding, I love pumpkins and pumpkin spice...so I stocked up on many many pumpkin themed items, and I am happy. We got lots of junk food, but be aware TJ might be the healthiest store ever, their veggie and fruit selection is crazy and really cheap. Since I can't bring that stuff across with me, we loaded up on tasty treats that will last us months.
First off we got a very large insulated tote bag, it holds so much and seems to be very well made so it will get lots of use.
We got two Triple Ginger Snaps, the best ginger snaps ever! a Fruit Jellies for the hubby, he really likes fruit jellies and I am always looking for some for him. Finally we got the product that started our TJ obsession, the Chocolate Orange Sticks.
Williams-Sonoma version of this a few years ago and it was a hit at Thanksgiving. While the WS was tasty it was also pricy as hell, these were $2.99 each. They were also doing tastings of them together and it was just as good as the WS version. Finally I got the Toasted Pumpkin Seed Oil which is such a pretty dark green and just the right amount of toasted, it is going to be used on salads for months to come.
Original Irish Breakfast Tea. Last time we went to a TJ I got one of these, my Step-Mother-in-Law got half of it and didn't think much of it, but my Mother-in-law went nuts for it when she came over to vist. She took no stock into the fact I could not buy more and just made pot after pot with two tea bags in each. Soooo...one box is going to her and one is staying here.
Finnaly I got the best mustard ever, the Hot and Sweet Mustard.
Over at Target I got more food. I really tried to get some beauty stuff there but every single thing on my list was not there. It wasn't meant to be.
We got 4 cases of Cherry Coke Zero as well.The hubby loves candy corn, I mean LOVES it. He picked up some Brach's S'mores and Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn. I hate the texture of candy corn so these are all his (he already ate most of the S'mores).
Kelly McKelly raved about Coffee Mate Hazelnut on one of her Coffee Time With Kelly videos, so heck I had to grab one. Hazelnut is one of my go to flavours (as well as pumpkin, pumpkin spice and mint chocolate). I also got Archer Farms (Target brand) Pumpkin Spice Coffee Syrup, it happens to be sugar free and the exact same bottle of my empty Starbucks hazelnut syrup. So I am putting the Starbucks pump onto this one. I saw that they had regular flavours as well (hazelnut, carmel, vanilla) so I am going to go for a hunt to see if they are in Canada or not since it was ¼th of the price that Starbucks charges.
