Recent: Beauty Purchases

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Hey All!

Long time, no talk! So today I blacked out while driving and ended up at Ulta....
I'm trying so so so hard not to spend money, but I broke down. I ended up grabbing a couple of things from Ulta, and then went over to Target as well. At Ulta, I picked up FINALLY the Lorac Unzipped Palette. I've been wanting this palette forever and it was the last one in stock. I leaped and bought it. It's beautiful. The colors and pigmentation are amazing. I also got the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation to try. I had been using the MAC Mineralize Foundation and a bit of the Benefit's Oxygen Wow foundation. I'm not really blown away by either. Both look very cakey on my skin. I need full coverage, because I do have blemishes and my skin has a very uneven tone to it. I've heard wonderful things about this foundation, so I thought I would give it a try. I also got my new MAC X Proenza Schouler products in the mail today. They're amazing! The two lipsticks are beautiful, and the nail varnish is a gorgeous color. I also picked up some Organix shampoo and conditioner at Ulta. They were selling huge bottles for only $7.99, so I hopped on it. I got the Brazilian Keratin treatment, because sometimes my hair is straight in the front, but very wavy in the back. I also picked up some more butter glosses from NYX at Target.....

I just wanted to show the little pouf I got from Target today! How cute is it? It's perfect for just throwing some clothes on, or to sit on while I'm doing my make-up!

Wow, I've never seen such beautiful sneakers....
These aren't even sold in the United States, and they're sold out in Europe. Currently going on eBay for $180 + $40 for shipping... So see you never beautiful sneakers. I can just see myself wearing these with some boyfriend jeans, a loose v-neck and a cardigan. They're perfect. Very casual and relaxed. I really wish these were sold in the U.S! I could buy them for $130 + free shipping!

Darn you Nike!!!!

I've been so busy with school that I haven't even had a minute to even think about posting anything. I actually just picked up some stuff from the new Proenza Schouler X MAC Line so I will definitely be reviewing those products as soon as I get them!

If I have the energy, I will post something again either today or tomorrow!

IT Bag of the Season!

Friday, April 18, 2014


I finally got my actual hands on one. Ladies and gentlemen! The Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag!

I fully realize my photos are mediocre, currently trying to save up for a new camera! I'm so in love with this bag! Outfit post to come later today!

Hey everyone!

Sorry I've been MIA recently. I've had SUCH a bad cold over the weekend into the earlier part of this week. I actually had to leave work Saturday night because I just felt so uncomfortable serving people food with a wicked cough and a runny nose (wouldn't you?). Anyways, here I am! It's Wednesday, and today already sucks really bad. I was late for class this morning, and ended up getting a speeding ticket on my way to school. To top it all off, I have to work tonight with this cold still not kicked. It just wants to hang on until the bitter end.

I do have some exciting news though! I finally bit the bullet and paid the other half of my deposit on some 3.1 Phillip Lim shoes that I pre-ordered through Moda Operandi back in the fall. I really just wanted to forfeit my deposit and take the credits because these shoes were around $500 and that is just not feasible with me right now. They should be here today, and I will definitely write about whether I kept them or not. I mean, I'm really going to have to LOVE them to keep them, because that is WAY too much money for shoes at this point in my life. I just have too many bills to pay.

ALSOOOOOO, I was on NeedSupply the other day and was just browsing. I went to the bags section and what did I see? MANSUR GAVRIEL BUCKET BAGS IN FREAKING STOCK. I had to refresh the page to make sure I wasn't seeing things. I almost lost it. I was also sad at the same time because I really couldn't afford a $460 bag. I knew that I wanted it so bad, and I'm probably on 5 waiting lists to get one. I've been stocking websites for ages just waiting for them to come back into stock. I knew I had to act fast, because I put the raw cammello one into my cart and the site said only two were still available, hardly giving me any time to think. So, I did the one thing I knew I had left. My mother. I acted out this long and dreadful story about how the bag was everything to me and how it wasn't really a "want" but a "need". I told her I have been looking for this bag for over a year (exaggerated) and that I was on several waiting lists (true). I pleaded to put it on her credit card and I would pay her back. She finally agreed and the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag is finally mine!!!!!! It should be at my house tomorrow, and I will be doing a full review on it!

Also, my mother wants to send me to a therapist for excessive spending habits, haha.......ha.

On another note, here are some things I've been craving lately.....

Dress from Zara.

Frame Denim in "Le Rip"

Tory Burch Two-Toned Sunnies

Obviously none of these things will be making an appearance in my wardrobe any time soon, so it's all just a dream for now. 


Spring Haul

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Hey everyone!

I did a bit of hauling over the last couple of weeks, so I made a video to show everyone what I got! I'm in no way bragging about any of the things I got, just wanted to share :) I can't even believe how long it takes to produce one video. After filming, editing, and publishing, the process takes hours. I might only do a video once a week. I am still very new to making Youtube videos, so hopefully I will learn along the way.

Hope you guys enjoyed the haul!!!

Wow. I had no idea this H&M was as big as it was. I was online at 10:30 this morning to pick up some things I was eyeing and everything was SOLD OUT. I kid you not, most of everything was gone. I was so sad, because I wanted those embroidered sandals SO bad. They were all gone though.

I then went to the H&M store on Newbury Street and I kid you not, MOSTLY EVERYTHING WAS GONE! It was insane. I scored a couple of pieces, but wow, the collection was cleared out. I couldn't find the sandals in the store ANYWHERE. I had given up looking, and then saw a pair behind the register was I was checking out. I immediately asked for the size, and they were a 9.5 :( I wish so bad those pretty shoes were an 8, but I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

Anyways, I took a quick shot of some of the stuff I picked up. I'm doing a haul video tomorrow so stay on the look out!

All of these things can be found (hopefully) in an H&M near you!

Hey All!

These shots are from an outfit I wore the other day, which I really liked. I plan on doing a Target haul tomorrow, and a Spring clothing haul in a couple of weeks. Sorry there are so many pictures! I couldn't decide on what ones to keep and what to toss.

H&M Conscious Exclusive

Tuesday, April 8, 2014


Wow. This new collection by H&M is unbelievable. It's PERFECT for all of the upcoming festivals. It's like a mix of bohemian and ancient Greek style. I am completely obsessed. The collection goes on sale on April 10th, at 10 AM, and you better believe I'm skipping class to buy some of the pieces. I NEED the shoes. Like it really isn't an option, NEED them. Not want, need. I'm completely obsessed with the earrings and the turban as well. I'm still debating on whether or not to get the bag. It's super cute, but I'm afraid I won't end up using it. The dress is a tad too pricey for me. I love it, but it's something I can't see myself spending $200 on. Ugh, I wish this collection was a little less pricey, because everything is GORGEOUS. There's this leather crop top that I saw on Danielle of WeWoreWhat that I love as well, but deciding on whether $130 is worth a little top.

I can't wait for this collection to come out!

Yes, I've been lacking recently. I've been sort of getting into videos/YouTube. I love fashion, but I also love beauty products. I love the idea of reviewing different products and such. My camera sort of (okay definitely) sucks, but I wanna get a tripod, and a better camera to make better videos. I love the idea of doing "Hauls" and such as well! It just sounds right up my alley.

The process for uploading is EXCRUCIATING though. My March Favorites video that I posted yesterday took me like 2 hours to edit! I don't have time for that right now, so I have a feeling videos will be scarce. Anyways, I sort of wanted to do a video when I get home from school, since I have some free time, but I don't know what to make it about. I need ideas!

Anyways, I was browsing Always Judging yesterday and saved some cool photos she posted.

Cute shots right?!


March Favorites...

Thursday, April 3, 2014

Guys! I finally made my first YouTube video! I decided to record my favorites this month instead of just writing about them. The quality is literally shit and so is the sound, but I'm looking at getting a new camera. I wasn't talking too loud because my brother was in and out of the house and it was just annoying. I really tried hard on editing it. The lighting in my room was terrible, so I just worked with what I had. I probably won't do this too much because recording, editing and uploading this video took about 5 hours. I don't have that much time on my hands. So I hope you enjoy it, and if you have any questions, please comment down below! You can find all of the information about the products talked about in the description on YouTube.
