Happy September my Dears! I hope everyone had a good start to the month today. Work was crazy, but then again, it usually is. I just wanted to do a quick/ semi-random post about a couple things that I am loving at the moment, along with some recent online shopping purchases that I can't wait to receive in the mail.

First: NARS' Albatross lipgloss is gorgeous! I am so happy that I made a wise choice in grabbing it at Sephora. I have so many colorful glosses, from pink to purple to coral. I guess I needed a break from those sort of stand-out colors, and simply let my own lips do the talking so to speak.

With flash

Natural light

Natural light, on my lips.
See the slightly golden/honey gleam? It makes my pout look ten times fuller. I normally don't receive compliments or comments on my lipgloss or lipstick, but I have when I am wearing this. If Albatross is the perfect highlight to the cheeks, than this gloss version is equally stunning on lips. I need to buy another tube because I read this is LE. Of course, right?!

I am also loving these flats from The Gap that I just purchased over the weekend. I have worn them to work all week! The soles feel like I am walking on air. Not exaggerating. They are comfy, period.

While browsing the lovely Natasha xoxo's blog, I nearly stopped dead in my tracks when I saw these booties (they call them shooties?) on the Payless website. They are designed by Lela Rose:

I was hoping to snag the taupe pair she featured on her blog, but my size was long gone and now all that remains is black. You girls know that I have been dying for a pair of booties to wear with dresses, skirts, and skinny jeans for Fall. The peep toes, cut-outs, and back zipper were what made these my ideal find. But who knows? I still might get another pair ;)

Keeping with the subject of Fall and coveted items, I searched every ULTA near me for this nail polish by Essie. I know, I need to stop with the Essie, especially since the formula is becoming more and more questionable by the minute! But this dirty, dingey, olive is nowhere to be found and I was getting this feeling of Panic! The Urban Decay Naked Palette has escaped me thus far, I couldn't let Sew Psyched escape me too. I ordered a bottle for $6.95 off of Amazon:

Lastly, to complete this ridiculously all-over-the-place post, I leave you with three women who I absolutely and positively adore. Two of these pictures are now gracing the side bar of my page.




A little beauty (well, beauty IMHO) to leave you with

  1. That lipgloss works amazing!:D

    ***** Marie *****

  2. I want to give NARS lipglosses a try! I'm always just debating which to get first. Love both of those shoe pics as well.

  3. hmm that gloss is quite fabulous! I think I might consider getting it :)

  4. Marie: Lol, thank you!

    Jessica: Good luck deciding!

    Veronika: I have a feeling you'd really like this one. I could definitely see you wearing it ;)

  5. Awesome post!
    Those booties are insane! Thanks for posting about them!
    I just rediscovered a Nars gloss too, it's coral and it's beautiful on somehow! PS-I have Sew Psyched on my toes right now :)

  6. Andi: I am so envious you already have Sew Psyched! Olive seems to be a favorite color for both of us ♥

  7. Love the booties (in fact I'm kinda crazy about them in general right now. I picked up a pair the other day, black (Faux)suede, open toe, back zipper, and only $39.00! (not from payless though...)
    They are perfect with skinny jeans and leggings!

  8. oh such a pretty gloss and i LOVE that photo of Kim! her makeup looks perfect! xo

  9. I sow that gloss at my local sephora. It looks amazing. I love the highlighter. Great post. xx

  10. Ohhh...I love that nude lips gloss. Kim K is my fashion icon. She is so gorgeous!

  11. that lip gloss looks amazing.. i definitely need to pick that up..i honestly think kim kardashian looks very pretty despite the fact that she does not have her signature smokey eye.

  12. The Albatross lip gloss looks amazing! I am loving the booties...I can't believe they are from Payless!

  13. Nikosmommy: yay for booties! And at good prices ;)

    Andee: I love the way Kim looks here, she's never looked better!

    Ansa: Thank you ;) I think Albatross really is the best highlighter. I wear it most often on my cheekbones when I go out at night. The sheen captures light so well!

    PetiteLittleGirl: I love nude lips too, and this one is a little more unexpected. It lets your natural lips show through because other than the gold sheen, it is very very sheer.

    InsideBeauty101: I recommend looking at Albatross the next time you're in Sephora! Kim looks stunning here. I actually love her sans smokey eye!

    Amanda: I know, I couldn't either! What a great deal!

  14. I'm obsessed with lipgloss. I have to grab it next time I'm in Sephora! Also, I can't wait to see an OOTD featuring your new pair of shooties! :)

    <3, Natasha

  15. OBSESSED with that gorgeous NARS lipgloss and that gray Essie polish is so chic and unexpected. Love it for fall.

  16. I can never bring myself to spend that much on a lipgloss. CG works for me! But glad you found something you love so much and looks great on your lips!!

    Cute shoes too!!

  17. Natasha: Again, thank you for blogging about Payless, because I wouldn't have thought to look there for booties otherwise ;)

    Josie: Thank you doll. I just saw your latest outfit post and you look fab!

    Nicole: I agree, this is my only NARS lipgloss and I normally wouldn't dare spend that much on one!
