Sephora collection cream lip stain

Standard

Hey y’all! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. Nowadays it seems like every day  is a national day of something and on Saturday it was both national lipstick and chicken wing day! I kinda love these made up days of celebration because I see it as a day that others co-sign on something I wanted to do anyway, like eat chicken wings! While I did eat the wings, I didn’t shop for new lipstick. I got caught up in the hype of the free lipstick offer from MAC, got to the mall only minutes after they opened…and they were already gone! That really did burst my bubble, so I was no longer in the mood to even browse. But I did find one a couple weeks ago that I absolutely love, and wanted to share with you guys.

If you haven’t noticed a trend, I’m starting to love Sephora! Ulta has always been my makeup happy place, but I’m really loving Sephora at the moment. The biggest reason is that you can get a free sample of anything in the store! So, back to the lipstick. I’m loving the cream lip stains. I now have three of them, and this is the latest one I’ve purchased. The color is bohemian purple. 

I love both the pigmentation and these are very long-wearing. They dry into a matte finish. A lot of mattes are drying, but this one isn’t. Here’s what it looks like on. 

I just can’t say enough about how much I love these. I wish I could have them all! They’re also affordable at $14 each. Have you guys tried these before? Which color do you love the most? Let me know because I’m totally obsessed and can’t wait to try more colors!

Dillard’s clearance: fab shoe find

Standard

Hey y’all! Hope everyone has had an amazeballs week so far. It’s been eons since I wrote about shoes. I’ve actually been trying to do less shopping. I have soooooo much stuff it’s getting kinda ridiculous. But when Dillard’s has a clearance sale where you get extra off, it’s worth checking it out. It was the weekend before July 4th and there was an extra 30% off! I went a little nuts. I got 2 pair of sunnies, a necklace, earrings, a shirt (which I just remembered,) and these fab pair of heels! 

They ended up being like $25. You can’t beat that for a pair of Jessica Simpsons. I love her shoes by the way. I even wore a pair today. They’re affordable, always comfy, and always on sale somewhere! 

So other than sales like these, I rarely even shop at Dillard’s. But like I said, when they have these sales, you must go. You never know what you’ll find. I hear there’s also a Dillard’s clearance store in Asheville. I’ve been meaning to go, and I think I may do that on my bday this year. I always take the day off because hello, I don’t work on the national holiday that is my bday, and I need something to do that day. It’s not far away, so why not go and see what I can find. Have you guys been? 

Sephora nude glow: yes you need some!

Standard

Hey y’all! Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th! I visited my mom in SC for the day, and on the way home from dinner, I got my first speeding ticket! Womp womp! Other than that, it was great. So, I’m in love with a new product. Well I don’t know how new it is but I just discovered it. I live for a good glow, so I’m so excited about it! It’s called nude glow by Sephora. It’s a setting spray and I paid $20. A little pricey I think for such a small package, but definitely worth it. 

It’s an aeresole mist.  You have to be careful about over spraying because you can’t feel it going on, and if you spray too much, you end up looking greasy! 

This pic is from Sunday, the first day I used it. I thought I was a little heavy handed with it, but I still loved the look. 

You guys should definitely try this stuff! 

Purse storage solution 

Standard

Hey y’all! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend. I told myself that I wasn’t going shopping for awhile, and what did I end up doing all weekend? Shop! I did find some great deals though, and I only bought one item of clothing, so I’m still proud for not buying more clothes. Y’all it’s getting out of control with the clothes, so I do need to cut back on shopping before I completely run out of room! Speaking of running out of room, I needed extra room for purse storage, especially my clutches.  In my head I had the idea of getting some sort of cute box/bin to put them in, and I found exactly what I was looking for, and even cuter at Ross this weekend! 

  They had these in 3 different sizes. This was the largest size and only 8.99. I wish I had gotten all of them because I could have found a use for them all. I love the distressed look too! 

And y’all, this thing is full now, because I added more from a different closet after I took this pic. So, what do you guys use for purse storage? I could use more ideas.
