September Favorites 2014

September Favorites 2014

Videos
I had only a few favorites for September, but I just found myself reaching for the same things over and over again. Without further ado.... [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSa16APukVg&w=560&h=315] Here's a little more information about each of the products I talk about in the video (or just the TL;DR version for those who don't want to watch the whole video!): MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20 - I couldn't find the contact lens case I was using to save the extra product that comes out of the pump (explanation in my review of this concealer), so I went for using the whole pump and using the excess to spot treat and prime my lids. Then I could go without foundation or BB cream! Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (sample) - Ever since I…

Target Haul + Try-On

Style, Style hauls, Videos
Hi all, I just got a few petite items from Target's website, because I'm 5'3" and the clothes in the actual store are often taller than I am.   Here are photos of what I got: Check out my video to hear about what I got and for links to the items (as long as they're still in stock): [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeJxj-ko4Vc&w=560&h=315] Thanks for stopping by!

Shoreline Boutique First Purchase

Shoreline Boutique First Purchase

Style, Style hauls
Hi all, I came across an online boutique called Shoreline Boutique a few weeks ago, and they were having a "last call" sale on some of their sale items so I decided to try them out. They also always offer free shipping, so there's no loss if you have to send anything back. I enjoy supporting small businesses when I can, so I was really excited to find a store that sells such cute clothes and accessories! They're based in Florida and their website says that there are plans to open up a store there soon. The items came in a typical plastic envelope, but inside they were packaged really nicely: Here are the items I got: I know the cold weather is just about over, but I've been wanting…

Birthday Haul (I’m a Crazy Person)!

Birthday Haul (I’m a Crazy Person)!

Beauty hauls, Style, Style hauls
Hi, everyone! I got some things I've been lusting after (and then some) for my birthday, and I thought I'd share it with you guys. But I feel the need to start off with a warning: I went a little crazy. I never shop like this and probably won't buy too much more for a long time, so be prepared for a long post... Sephora Of course, I had to go to Sephora. I had some store credit from a return and decided to go against my natural instinct to save it up and splurge on something fun. I have two from the Rouge Volupte Shine line and really wanted to try the original Rouge Volupte line. I got #29 Rose Opera: The scent and feel of this lipstick is similar to…

Favorite October Outfits

Favorite October Outfits

OOTD, Style
Hi everyone, First off, I'd like to apologize for being sort of inconsistent this month. I've had a really hard time sleeping, and that keeps me from getting stuff done like blogging. I'm working on fixing this, so I hope to be better with it this month! I'm starting with my favorite outfits from October, and my October favorites will come next. As promised, I did a better job this month to make sure I actually took pictures of my outfits to share with you. I have four that I really liked. The weather had been a bit inconsistent lately, so there's a good mix of warm- and cold-weather outfits from the month. Outfit 1: I just love the colors on this sweater! I made sure to pair it with neutral…

Target + Ulta Collective Haul

Target + Ulta Collective Haul

Beauty hauls, Beauty steals, Style, Style hauls
Hey, girls! The best time to catch sales is between seasons, as stores are trying to clear the shelves to make room for the next batch of stuff. I went to Target and Ulta a couple weeks ago and decided to try some products I haven't tried before, and went back to Ulta last weekend, so now I have two trips worth of products to show you! I don't usually like to shop at Ulta for drugstore products (it's often more expensive, and I'm not in love with their coupon and rewards systems), but it's worth it when there are any deals or sales going on. Anyway, I just thought I'd let you know my first impressions of these products as I've been starting to use them. Trip 1 - Target…

Nordstrom Rack Haul

Beauty hauls, Beauty steals, Style, Style hauls
Hey, everyone! You know I love a good deal. The other day, we were near a Nordstrom Rack, and I remembered that I had a cash back deal on my card, so I just had to check it out. I walked out with five items and over $130 in savings. First, the little things: https://flic.kr/p/qb6hBA I got a UD eyeshadow palette, a Stila eyeshadow, and a pair of earrings. I actually didn't even see that they had makeup until I was about to get in line to check out. Of course, I have no self control when it comes to discounted makeup. I mean, seriously: https://flic.kr/p/qbe6Eg DISCOUNTED. HIGH-END. MOTHER-EFFING MAKEUP. The UD palette I picked up is called the "Eyeshadow Ammo." It has a couple of shades that are also in…
