Video transcript with photos:
Hi there, it’s Selena from Kindred Closets. This video is just going to be a quick overview of some of the purchases that I made at the Dollar Tree recently. I’m just going to include the beauty purchases or things that are kind of related to that and then at the end I am going to show you kind of a quick way to put some of these items together with a few other items if you wanted to put together a little gift basket for a friend.
Every time I go to the Dollar Tree I always pick up the Yardley English Lavender Soap. I love this soap. The only place I’ve ever been able to find it is actually at the Dollar Tree so whenever I’m in the area I usually pick up two of these. They smell great!
The next thing that I got was this cute little espresso cup with a little candle in it. It smells delicious. It’s got a chocolate-y scent. Lovely.
I got three packages of these scented sachets- two of them are in lilac and one is in gardenia. They actually come with three packages in each.
So these are great to tuck into a gift if you want the package to smell nice. You can also tuck these into your drawers to keep your linens and things smelling lovely.
I also found these two bottles of Belle Maison Apple Orchard Scented Hand Wash:
It smells delicious. The packaging is gorgeous!
And I was really surprised by that because I wouldn’t have expected to find something so pretty but it actually looks a lot higher end. Sometimes you can find things like that at the Dollar Tree.
Sometimes there are brand names. For instance, I found two packs of these Maybelline Color Show Nail Tattoos which are really cute:
Now I have shorter nails, so I don’t know how they’ll fit onto mine, but if I grow my nails out longer, then I can use those. They’re water transfer decals. So I’m going to have one for me and then I’m going to save one.
I think when I have about 500 or 1000 subscribers (I haven’t decided yet) then I’m going to do a big give-away for you guys. So please like and subscribe! Let me know what you think, if you think I should do it at 500, if you think I should do it at 1000.
I also got this mask:
It’s got these little gel beads inside:
This thing is really great. I’m excited about using it. You pop it in the fridge for 60 minutes. It helps to de-puff your eyes. From the package: “Relieves stress and reduces puffiness.”
The next thing that I found were a couple of notebooks (This isn’t makeup related, but I’m going to show them in the gift package that I’m going to put together).
Now everything at the Dollar Tree is a dollar each. Sometimes there are some things that are less than a dollar, but everything stays under a dollar.
I also found these erasable blackboard labels:
Now I saw this on the Youtube Channel DoItOnADime. She had made some organizers for her pantry with these. I’m going to do something similar, but a little bit different. I’ll post that as well.
Then I found these L.A. Colors Trio Eyeshadows:
Now I’ve read reviews on these. They are obviously a cheaper brand so you’re not going to get the same quality as a higher end brand, however I’ve heard they’re very pigmented.
And although the colors that you see on the package aren’t exactly what you’re going to get, they are a lot brighter than you would expect.
So I am looking forward to using these and I’ll definitely post a review on those on my website, KindredClosets.com.
I got 2 other sets. These are 6-piece sets:
This one is called “Nite Out”:
And this one is called “Lucky”:
I tend to wear a lot of greens and a lot of purple eyeshadows. I’m interested to see how this black and pink set looks on me.
I found these All-In-One Makeup Sticks:
This color is called “Pink Satin,” and you can use this on your lips, eyes, and cheeks.
I will be keeping one for myself (and testing one) and then the other one will go into that box that’s going to go for the big give-away that I’m going to have coming up.
As for the gift basket, the best way to put together a gift basket for somebody is just to pick items that are very similar colors and then package it nicely.
You can put tissue in this, but in order to make it easier to see, I’m not going to put that in there. So you’ve got the notebook…
I have this cute book called The Girl’s Guide: Men, Fashion, Diets, and Other Disasters By Tina Neidlein:
**I bought two of these at a bookstore recently. One for me and one that will go in the giveaway. I haven’t read the whole book, but it looked like it had some cute and funny little quirks on the inside.
So I’m just going to tuck that in there as well. Put in the sachets, put in the eye mask, soap, you got the candle, 3 nail polishes and a lipstick (All-In-One Makeup Stick).
If you bought this at the Dollar Tree, it would cost you around, maybe $11 or $12 with tax.
It looks nice. You package it up with some cellophane or some tissue paper and then they’ve got their little basket and all their little goodies on the inside!
So I hope you enjoyed this episode and if you have any suggestions or questions, please go ahead and leave them in the comment box below. If you can like and subscribe, I would be very grateful!
As always, remember, true beauty starts on the inside. If you want to know how to be beautiful, here’s the secret: you already are!
