Dunkin Donuts Downey Grand Opening ‘

Hi loves!

Hope you all are enjoying the beginning of fall especially with the pumpkin spice theme coming from all the coffee places!

I wanted to change up things a bit with a post about the 2nd Dunkin Donuts in Southern California located in Downey. When I first heard that they were going to open a Dunkin Donuts in Downey, I was so excited because I heard great things about the iced coffees and donuts. This is actually one of the first Dunkin Donuts that has a drive thru in SoCal!

The grand opening was on September 23, 2014 and started at 5am! :-O For the first person in line as well as the first person in the drive thru line would get free coffee for the whole yr! The first 100 guests in line did get a Dunkin Donuts tote filled with goodies! For everyone who came yesterday did get a free medium iced coffee.

I got there about 11am and the line wasn’t too long but I didn’t get my coffee and donuts until almost 11:50am. I think it was well worth it though, however I didn’t see anything about the “California-inspired donut”. I did get the medium iced coffee in Caramel. Not too sweet but not too strong, dare I say I might start getting this more than Starbucks iced coffee!

As for the donuts, I kind of wish there was more of a variety of donut flavors but I understand it was that grand opening so it was limited. For a dozen donuts, its about $9.95 and for a single donut it’s $0.99 which isn’t bad considering it to be a well known brand. As for the flavors I got: Boston Kreme, Chocolate Frosted, Old Fashioned Cake, Sprinkles, and Vanilla. At this point, I think my favorite would have to be vanilla.

I am definitely looking forward to coming here more often and try more of the donut flavors and coffee flavors.

**they also have a rewards card called DD Perks. You get a free medium beverage when you first sign up, on your birthday and every time you earn 200 points. You earn 5 points for every $1 you spend.

Daiso Japan Haul Lakewood Grand Opening

Hi lovelies!

I’m so sorry I’ve been behind in my Friday Mani posts, been working these past 2 Fridays! But I’ll be sure to post this coming Friday.

There was a big grand opening for the Daiso Japan store in Lakewood, CA and that’s the closest one to my house. So when I heard there was a grand opening, I had to go and this was my first time actually going to a grand opening of any store. The doors opened at 10am but by the time I got there at 9am, there was already a line! For the first 200 customers with receipts, they would get a goodie bag at the end.

Daiso is a Japanese discount store where most of the products are $1.50 while some other products are $1.00 up to $3.00. It’s almost impossible to go into this store to buy one thing, but I can tell you for sure: you’ll definitely buy more than one thing!

I do admit I do think I did go a bit overboard with shopping at this store!

haulBeauty View 

This is a mirror that can be used as standing type by folding the lid in backwards. This works perfectly for someone who is trying to do their eyebrows, put on their contacts or practice their eyeliner technique. I definitely plan to use it for those purposes. It’s has a cute pink hue to it with pink flowers on the cover.

Hair Pin with Mirror Case Set

This is a small black sophisticated box that carries your bobby pins and it did also includes 25 bobby pins. When you open it up, there’s a mirror. I really do love the design of this case on the top! It’s detailed with two roses.

Cosmetic Cotton

This contains 150 sheets which you can use for makeup removal and nail polish removal and is 100% cotton.

Face Towel

It’s 100% cotton and comes in different colors and I chose navy. It’s always a good idea to have one towel used just for cleansing the face instead of using a towel for hair and the face. Honestly when I see this color, I automatically think of the Cookie Monster!

Foot Mask Pack

When I first saw this, I was surprised! A mask for your feet?! I’ve heard of the baby soft feet product but not this. I’m definitely post this on Instagram when I try it out.

Kleancolor Nail Lacquer and Kleancolor Wizard Pads

I got this nail lacquer in 139 Pastel Pink. The name says it all. I definitely need more summer polishes so I figured try this new brand out! As for the Wizard Pads, it is nail polish remover pads and cuticle oil. I like how it’s easy to use with no mess. Only recommendation is that if you do use the Wizard Pads, I suggest you use it on a light colored polish or any polish for that matter that doesn’t have any top coat on it because you’ll have to use about 3 pads for both hands.

Sumi Charcoal Facial Cleansing Foam

I’ve heard the awesome reviews about using products that include charcoal. For only $1.50 I figured it’s worth a try. I can’t wait to try this!

I alos went the next day (Sunday) to see the winning nymbers for the raffles but alas I didn’t win. 😦 However, I did pick up 2 more things!

Sleeping Pack 

It’s a gel that you apply on your face at night and it makes the skin moist while sleeping. What really made me want to buy this was the main ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid!

Rose Contact Lens Case

I always need an extra case for my contacts because for some reason, I always lose them! When I saw this, I had to buy it. First of all, it’s pink and its roses. I don’t know if I already mentioned this but I am in love with all floral things especially roses.

Lastly they had a promotion the 1st day that was where if you were one of the 200 people with a receipt, you would get a goodie bag. This included two types of snacks: Shrimp Chips and Wheat Noodle Crackers, A Tea’s Tea black tea latte, Vitamin C tablets, Orange Gummies, 2 types of cookies and a yogurt drink.

Hope you guys and gals enjoyed this haul!
