The one where I fall in love with CVS

We don’t have CVS where I come from. Last week I made only my third-ever visit to CVS, and the first to shop for makeup. All of my drugstore purchases are made at Walgreens due to its proximity to my apartment (1.5 blocks versus 6 blocks to CVS). Last Thursday I was planning on going to Walgreens to go makeup shopping, but thanks to a detour on the way home I found myself right in front of CVS and thought, why not?

OMG I AM IN LOVE. How have I never gone makeup shopping at CVS before? It’s so big! There’s so much! They have all sorts of things I would never dream of finding in Walgreens. I could have spent hours (and hundreds of dollars) in there.

So, let’s just say I am a CVS convert. I’ll still go to Walgreens when it’s 3 a.m. and I realize that I’m out of toothpaste. But when it comes to the good stuff, I’ll be going to CVS for sure. I could use the extra exercise. I signed up for an Extra Care rewards card, and they are going to give me money back just for shopping there, and that means money for EVEN MORE MAKEUP AND NAIL POLISH.


  1. I love CVS! Don't forget to join the Beauty Club because you get $5 in Extra Bucks for every $50 you spend on cosmetics and hair care and stuff.

  2. Done! Thanks for the tip!

  3. They just sent me a coupon for 10% off. It has to be used by Thursday, as though I really have a problem with that. I heart CVS.
