Here’s my Christmas Haul video, for those of you who either wanna get a closer look at what I got or just like watching me act like a jackass =) I had a lot of cough medicine prior to filming, so I was on one. Enjoy!
Hello fellow beauty lovers, greetings from the land of the fabulous! I know I’ve been quite this week and I owe it all to this miserable cold I caught that just doesn’t wanna go away. I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend, mine was really good despite the sniffling and coughing. My family and I went away to a charming little cabin in Yosemite and had a cute little Christmas out in the woods complete with nighttime beer drinking/star gazing. And of course, an amazing pile of gifts on Christmas morning! I know you guys love my Christmas hauls, so here is a sneak peak of what I got, before I even make my haul video!
This is pic of my collective haul, it’s so big I had to back aaaaaall the way into the wall to get it all. I got everything from jewelry new yoga pants to beauty products and a high end Snuggie. Yes, I am a spoiled little princess, even though I’m all grown up =)
Naturally I got a bunch of beauty goodies since that’s the thing everyone knows I like. My mom got me the Sephora Collection Makeup Studio Blockbuster, which let me tell you is even more amazing in person. I can’t WAIT to start playing with this one! My Stepdad gave me the Stila Ultimate Color Palette -which I’ve been dying to get my hands on- as well as a Sephora gift card which I’m pretty sure I’ll be using to get the new UD Naked Palette. Oh, and did you see the adorable hairdryer there? Mom found that it Ulta – how cute is that!?
The shoes – oh the shoes! Just look at these, I seriously wish I had more feet so I could wear them all at once. The black Jessica Simpson pumps are perfect for work, while the Forever 21 heels are so hot I’m saving them for New Years. And the tan Steve Madden’s, well you KNOW I’ve already broken those in. I love them!
This was the most random gift, but how AWESOME is this coffee mug? Not only is it pink, but it has a bedazzled mirror on it! My Stepdad got this for me because in his words, “it is SO JACKIE!” Ad he couldn’t have been more right. I took this thing to work today and used it to check my lipgloss during my meetings. I can’t believe someone didn’t think of this sooner. Brilliant, just brilliant.
I’ll get more in detail about all this stuff when I film my haul video tomorrow night. It’s been a few weeks so I’m dying to get back in the game! Until then, I’m gonna get some sleep and see if I can’t shake this raspy voice in time to film. Goodnight all!
I came into work today and found the most wonderful surprise waiting for me – my ex’s mom had dropped this wonderful gift off for me. I was excited because I love presents and it was such a sweet thing for her to do, but also because I’ve been DYING to try out Mally Beauty for the longest time.
Just look at how cute this bag is! I can always tell I’m gonna love a product when even the packaging is pretty.
I couldn’t believe how much good stuff was in this bag! I got a High Shine Liquid Lipstick Pen in Mally’s Baby (shimmery pink), a volumizing mascara in black, the City Chick Eyeliner Pencil in black and an Evercolor Shadow Stick in Plum.
I started playing with these products right away and so far I love everything, but check back in a week or so for a full review!
I found this bag by Urban Expressions on Hautelook a few weeks ago and just couldn’t resist picking it up. Though its way too small for my every day needs considering I carry everything I own with me, I thought it would be perfect as a makeup bag. Yes, I said makeup bag. Leave it to me to use an ultra glam bag as something to store my makeup in, only to place it inside an even larger glamorous bag.
I paid $23 for this, and it was worth every penny. Between the rich fuchsia color and ultra shiny sequins it was love at first site.
While I love the bag, I hate the chain strap so I took it off. It kinda reminded me of the bags Hilary Banks used to sport on Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Don’t get me wrong, it was cute in 1991, but in 2011 not so much.
I love how satiny the inside of the bag is. It’s perfect for carrying lipglosses, mascara and maybe even a few brushes.
I love this little pocket in the back because it’s just the right size for storing my tea tree oil blotting sheets.
Can we just take another moment to admire how sparkly this thing is? Oh how I love shiny things <3
