So I did a little shopping yesterday and wanted to share with you guys what I picked up. Everything was quite inexpensive, except for one item. I'll share that with you last. If anyone wants a review of any of the products I mention, let me know and I will be more than happy to. I have yet to test out anything though, but I definitely will soon! ok, onto my little shopping spree:

I went to Ulta because I had a coupon that allowed me to take off $3.50 from any $10.00 purchase. They were also having a buy two, get one free for many drugstore makeup brands. I chose NYX because I have heard a lot of great things about their cosmetics, and I wanted to give them a try.


I got a lipstick in Ceto, an eyeshadow trio in Lake Moss, two jumbo eye pencils in purple and pots and pans, and a lipgloss in Smokey Look.

I am excited to try these products. What is your opinion of NYX Cosmetics? I like how inexpensive everything was. I am also extra excited about the lip products. They feel so good on!I plan on wearing Smokey Look with a smokey eye ;)

I also bought a Sally Hansen eye trio in Amethyst. These purple colors are so wearable and pretty. Then I got a Maybelline eyeshadow quad in Velvet Crush. This is the first time I have bought eyeshadows from Maybelline, and I am looking forward to creating different looks with just one pallete.

While at Ulta, I decided to get some hair products. I bought the Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray to protect my hair from the heat of my blowdryer and flat-iron. I also bought the Smoothing Lustre Lotion from Got2be. It smells like candy! I hope these products do what they claim to do.


Now on to my last favorite purchases! I stopped by my mecca (Forever 21) and bought THE PERFECT dress for my upcoming 25th. It isn't something I would normally gravitate towards because it has a print! Imagine that! But it is just so fun and flirty. It reminds me of a hot Miami night!It is a strapless chiffon dress with tiers of ruffles cascading down. It is so colorful, I think it will be perfect for my special night out in a few weeks. I plan on wearing it with gold accessories. Sorry for the poor lighting.




And lastly, I went to Nordstrom and bought the cutest little silver bow necklace from Juicy Couture. I am so in love with it!


Thank you for stopping by my blog!
