April Favorites And A Product Update...

Hey everyone welcome back to my blog. Today I want to share with you guys my April favorites and give you a update on a product that have mentioned in a recent haul post here on my blog. I don't have lots of favorites this months so this will be a short post. Hope you guys don't mind, anyways lets get started. 
Here is all of my favorites for this month. I am going to start at the left side of the photo above with the beauty items then the one piece of jewelry and so on.

Two Faced Better Then Sex Mascara:  Love this mascara it gives my lashes so much volume and length. This mascara is a very wet formula so I found it a little hard to work with at the beginning, but once it started to dry out a bit the formula started to become a lot easier to work with. Great mascara if you guys haven't tried out this product yet go and do so you won't regret it.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray: I believe I have said this before in a other post, but I have never been a setting spray girl I have always used powder to set my foundation. This product as changed my mind about setting sprays. This setting spray sets makeup beautifully it also doesn't feel sticky and heavy on the face.

Sephora Pro Mini Full Coverage Brush (53.5): I have mentioned this brush and talked about it a little on my haul post I did about two weeks ago here on my blog. If you are interested in that post please feel free and go check it out. I have been loving using this brush this past month for bronzing. This makeup brush is a very dense brush which I like in a brush. It is also very precise brush which makes it great for contouring. Best of all it doesn't shed when washing. Love this brush and very happy I bought it.

Alex And Ani Bracelet:I have been loving wearing this bracelet this past month, it is a lite weight and goes with everything I wear. I also like that it comes in gold. These bracelets are very affordable which it a big plus for me. Great piece of jewelry.

The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend Book: I know I normally don't mention books in my favorites but this book was so good that I could not mention it. I don't know what to say because I don't want to ruin it for anyone who as not read it yet or was thinking about reading this book. What I can say without giving anything away is that its a great book and not slow at all. Its one of those books that I will be rereading again in the near future. Love how the author wrote it.

That's all for the favorites. Now to that product update.

I have mentioned and showed you guys this item before in that same haul post about two weeks ago. Well I have a few more things to say now that I have been using it for a month now. The main thing that I wanted to update you guys now is that puff that you see above that comes with these blotting sheets.

I said in that haul post that the puff doesn't really do what it claims it does. Which is to stick a blotting sheet on to the puff so you don't have to pick up one with your fingers. Well now that I have been using it the blotting sheets do stick on the puff, I have also noticed that when the blotting sheet is on the puff and I am using it the oil that is on the sheet will transfer on to the puff. Which makes me think that the way the blotting sheet is sticky to the puff is because of the oil from the sheet.

That right there grosses me out just because old oil is touching a new blotting sheet, I don't know call me crazy I just don't think that is very sanitary. I am going to end up throwing away that puff and just using my fingers to pick up a sheet. Let me know in a comment below if you guys have tried this item before and if you had the same problem I did or if you ended up throwing away the puff?

That's all of my favorites this month. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found something new you might want to try. Like always please follow me here on my blog to know when I post when stuff. And I will talk to you guys very soon.

Clothing And Beauty Haul Plus First Impressions, Not Only But Also DEALS! (H&M, American Eagle,Forever 21)

Hey everyone hope everyone is doing well. Today I want to share with you guys some last minute fall clothing that I got and a summer romper that I picked up. There will also be a few body and hair products included in this haul. Without further more lets jump right into it.
Here is everything I picked up on this haul. First I am going to to start with the clothing items since there is more of them. Then I will talk and give you guys my thoughts on the body and hair items.

Let's start on the left hand side of the photo above. I picked up this blue and white striped long shelve shirt at H&M for a great deal the original price of this shirt was $17.00 and I got it for $6.99 can you say what a steal! I have worn this shirt already for work and it was super comfortable and soft a little baggy and lose on me so if you don't like that kind of look then I would say size down.

Next I got a jean long shelve button up shirt at American Eagle it was $39.99. I also have worn this shirt already. I did a outfit of the day here on my blog and on Instagram so if you are interested to see how it looks like on and what I paired it with go check out my last post and also my Instagram (Shopaholic8450). 

This button up was super comfortable and soft and lite, perfect for now when there are days that are a little chilly and not that warm.

Then I just picked up some leggings at Forver21 they were super cheap only $3.99. I haven't worn them yet so not sure how they are. If you guys want a update on them
 please let me know in a comment below.

The last clothing item that I picked up is a summer piece, and that is the jean romper that you see in picture above. This romper as buttons going down the middle which I thought was a nice little detail to this simple looking romper. I haven't worn this item yet but when I do I will do a outfit of the day here on my blog or on Instagram so be sure you following both so you don't miss out. The price of this romper was $14.90.

Now for the beauty part of this haul. Lets start with the Vaseline intensive care advanced repair hand lotion (unscented). First thing I will say about this hand lotion is that its a thick lotion which is a god thing because that means it will be nice and rich. Overall it's all that and a really nice hand lotion the only thing I don't like about the this item. I find that it a little hard to rub into your hands and feels your hands looking greasy. 

I find that I have to wait a couple of seconds so it will all stink into my hands. So that is a little downfall but in the bigger picture I do like this hand lotion it keeps my hands feeling nice and not drying and I don't get that bothering feeling to my hands when using this product.

Next item is the Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer. I am not sure how I feel about this product. I have used it a couple of times already and I am still not sure. The whole point of this product is that you are to use this moisturizer after showering but before you towel dry and then you are to tap dry with a towel. That's all I really have to say about this item, when I get a better feeling about this item I will give you guys a update on it either in a empties or I will do a separate post on updates on products.

Last item that I picked up on this haul is the Tresemme Luxurious Moisture Conditioner. I used this conditioner for the first time today so I can't say much about it yet. What I can say that is a nice and rich conditioner but not heavy on the hair which is a big plus points for me since I have more fine curly hair.

The scent to this product is really nice and not strong. To me this conditioner smells like flowers. So far I like this conditioner. 

That's all of this haul/ first impressions post. Hope you guys enjoyed it and found new products or clothing items that you might want to get for yourself. As always be sure you are following me here on my blog to know when I post new stuff. And I will talk to you guys very soon.

Outfit Of The Day: Super Causal Outfit For Everyday (WITH A TWIST)

Hey everyone welcome back to my blog. Today I want to share with you guys a outfit that I wore this past week and thought was a great outfit to wear on a super causal day or a day that you don't want to get to dressed up but still want to look like you tried to. Without further more let's get into the outfit.
Here is the whole outfit with shoes and accessories. Let's start with the top photo so for top I am wearing a jean button up long sleeve shirt from American Eagel. Super comfortable shirt and super soft also very lite shirt. For bottoms I am wearing a pair of black leggings from Old Navy. They were also very comfortable to wear and thick which I was a little surprised that I thought they would be lite and very see thru. They are not like that at all big plus points with me.

Now for accessories I am wearing my black infinity scarf with fringe all around it. Shoes I just wore my brown boots with about a half of inch of heel to them. If you read my other outfit of the days then you have seen these boots here on my blog before.

Now here is the twist of this outfit of the day. I also wore the spiky necklaces that you see in the photo above. The only reason you can't see it in the first photo is because the scarf is covering it. You might be wondering why would I wear a necklaces that nobody will see, well that's not all true. 

The place that I had to go to that day the building was to warm to be wearing a scarf inside, so I ended taking off the scarf inside. Plus I want something to cover that gap that the shirt did cover. Hope this part all makes some sense and I don't sound nuts.

That's all for this outfit of the day with a twist to it. Hope you guys enjoyed this post today. And found some inspiration from it for a outfit of the day of your own. As I also be sure you are following me here on my blog to know when I post new stuff, and I will talk to you guys very soon.

Sephora|GAP Deals And My First Impressions (HAUL)

Hi everyone, hope everyone is doing well. Today I want to show you a few items that I picked up at my local Sephora store and a sweater that I picked up at GAP. I am also going to give you my thoughts on the beauty items since I have been using them since getting them. Without further more lets get into this short haul post.
Here is everything I picked up the last week. I am going to start talking about the most obvious item in this photo. Which would be the sweater. This sweater is super soft and comfortable not a form fitted sweater so it is a lose fit. I wore this sweater for Easter and was very happy with it not only is it soft but it kept me warm since it was a little chilly outside that day.

I got this sweater for half of the price of the original price was $39.99 and I got it for $19.99! Overall very happy with this purchase and can't wait to wear it again before the warm weather comes. Did I mention already that I got this sweater at Gap.

Now lets get into the beauty part of this haul. First beauty item that I am going to be talking about is the Sephora Pro Mini full coverage airbrush brush(53.5). My first impressions of this makeup brush is that its super soft to the touch and a very dense brush. Which I like when shopping for makeup brushes. 

When I used this brush for the first time I noticed it picked up product amazing and that its a very precised brush when applying product to your face. I also recently washed it and it washed perfect, the product came right off the brush and there was no shedding in the process. Which is always a big plus in my book! 

My reason for getting this brush is that I needed a new bronzer brush and so far I am really happy I bought this one. The price of this makeup brush is ($24.00). 

Second to last beauty item that I picked up are the Sephora blotting papers compact. I have also already tried these blotting papers since buying them. I really like them they get rid of any oil on my face that I be having that day. The only two things that I don't like about the packaging is that its very bulky and not the best if you want to throw your blotting sheets in a small purse. 

The other thing I am not to sure why its there it comes with a sticky puff that is to grab a blotting paper for you so you don't need to use your fingers. That is great but that sticky puff isn't sticky at all. So I end up just using my fingers to grab one. Aside from those two flaws these blotting sheets are great and do there job. They are ($8.99).

The last beauty item that I picked up at sephora is the Sephora green tea eye mask. (fiber eye mask). I haven't tried this one yet, but I have tried other eye mask from the sephora line before and it worked and I really liked it. I have done a whole post on one of these eye mask face mask here on my blog already. So if you are interested in what I had to say about them go and check that post out.

That's all for this Sephora and GAP haul. Hope you guys enjoyed this post and maybe found something that you might want to try out for your self. As always follow me here on my blog to know when new post goes up. And I will talk to you guys soon.
