I’m fine mamas! Thanks for asking. I just had to vent that out because of events that I have experienced over this month and a conversation I had last night. I miss you and I hope everything is fine with you! We need to catch up! xx
• After school, my sister & I went to try a new place for some Taro Boba. The place we went to was 2 stores down from the Goodwill, so we decided to drop by the Goodwill for a bit. We were only there for like 15 mins & boy were those 15 mins good to me! ;) I found an awesome pair of black suede platform sandals for $5.99 that were my size! What’s crazy is they look practically brand new, with no major wear, stains, etc. So after finding that pair, I decided to look around the clothes & then decided to go thru the shoe racks again. I swear the Thrift Gods were blessing me that day because I found an identical pair, but in a tan colorway for the same price & the size! I was sooo happy! Haha. The tan pair looks more brand new than the black pair. They honestly look like they’ve never been worn. Can’t believe I scored 2 pairs of the same shoe for such an awesome price. What makes it even more sweet is that they’re super comfy. Not only will they give me the height I really need ( I’m 5’2 >.< ), but I can be comfortable.Thanks again, Goodwill! I luh yew! <3
i’m glad i picked up both the “beige" & "medium" concealers because i wasn’t sure which would match me . they’re so inexpensive at $4.99 each , so i didn’t feel too guilty. i’m also glad i picked up "yellow" & although it’s purpose is to help conceal dark circles , i think it’ll be great to mix with foundations or concealers that lean too neutral or pink . i was afraid it would be like a canary yellow , but i’m glad it’s much more subtle .
i don’t have very many “nude” lip liners , so i picked up “mauve” & i’m in love with it . it’s dark enough to define my lips & leans more pink , which i like .
i picked up “enamored” from the 6 simply vamp lip creams because i don’t currently own a shade like it . it’s a metallic brown with purple shimmer that almost has a duochrome quality to it . depending on the light , it can look brown or purple . it’s really unique & super creamy like the name suggests .
“black berry" is a holy grail lip liner to me . excuse the swatch , since i didn’t do it justice . i thought i had an opaque swatch , but the flash proved me wrong . –___– anyways , it’s difficult to find a black lip liner & black berry is an awesome & super affordable one ! this particular one i bought is a back up . i’m not close to finishing my first one , but i didn’t wanna risk running out & not having a back up . this is great to pair with your black lippies or even your other vampy shades . it’s a staple for me , especially since all i’ve been wearing as of late are dark , vampy shades .
i’ve been going kinda crazy with purchases this month since it’s my birthday month , but i mean , why not ? i’m allowed to treat myself !
speaking of my birthday , it’s on 9.21 .shoutout to my fellow virgos & september babies ! 😜
i’ve bought alot of makeup , clothes & a pair of shoes so far . let me know if you guys want to see a haul !
• It was $5 Bag Day at my fave thrift store, which meant you can fill up a bag with as many clothes as you can for only $5. My sis & I decided to share a bag & we had 15 items in total (About 33 CENTS each!!!!) I got 9 items. My fave finds are the red pussy bow blouse & striped pussy bow blouse. I’ve been looking for blouses like these for a long time & I got lucky with finding two of them. I was already a pretty thrifty person, but after going to this thrift store, I’m such a cheapskate now. Hahaha. Like Goodwill prices seem so expensive compared to the deals I can get on Bag Days. All thanks to Yelp. :)
Since I had $3 ExtraBucks rewards from when I purchased the Maybelline Spring 2014 Limited Edition Color Tattoos , I decided to pick up some more goodies . This week (3/23 – 3/29), you can also earn another $3 Extrabucks rewards if you spend $10 on Maybelline products . I purchased the “Vision In Violet" Color Elixir for $8.99, which I’ve been wanting to try for the longest . Along with that , I also purchased a Color Show Polka Dots Nail Polish in "Pretty In Polka" for $4.19, as a filler so I’d get the $3 EB rewards .
Above , I compared "Vision in Violet" to the Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Glosses I currently own .
All Milani Cosmetics are BuyOneGetOne 50% Off this week , so I took advantage of that sale & stacked 2 of my $3 EB rewards . The Black Cherry Lipstick was $6.29 & the Sugar Plum Lip Pencil was $6.49 . I previously bought Sugar Plum when there was a $2.99 sale on Milani lipsticks & lip pencils at CVS back in December & it’s easily become a holy grail lip liner for me . It’s GORGEOUS ! After the BOGO 50% OFF deal & my $6 EB rewards were applied , I only had to pay $4.40 out of pocket . Keep in mind that I made two transactions so I’d get another #3 EB rewards after purchasing $10 worth of Maybelline products to use towards purchasing the Milani products . After the Milani transaction , I received another reward , this time it was $3 off of $15 purchase of Mascara, Lipstick, Nail Polish, Foundation or Blush . Yes , makeup is more expensive at drugstores like CVS , Rite Aid , etc. compared to Target or Walmart , but there are rewards if you sign up for their beauty clubs .
6/3/11 - Today I received my very first pair of Jeffrey Campbell Shoes! Meet the “Foxy” Espadrille Platform Sandals.
Many thanks to Runway Rundown for choosing me to win a $100 mini shopping spree at Lulu’s. Couldn’t believe these babies were under $100, being that most, if not all, JC Shoes are at least $125. I got lucky! Can’t wait to wear these. Love love love them!
