postheadericon Take It Off!

A couple of days ago I purchased some makeup wipes by the brand Hard Candy. Many of you may know them for things like lipgloss and bakes eyeshadow/blush. Recently (at least for me) I came across makeup remover wipes. Since I needed some more, why not try them? I'm glad I did! This wipes really work! They don't leave any kind of residue behind and I swear they even moisturize my face. This is coming from seomone with an extremely dry face. My other wipes contain medicine for acne so to use them everyday became a bit too harsh for my skin. These wipes seem to add that much needed moisture back!!

They come in a neat compact black packaging. Great for travel! The only negative thing I can say is there are only 25 wipes in the packaging. They are indeed full size wipes. I can fit my entire hand on a wipe and have room left.

For a pack of 25 wipes, you can expect to spend $5. Not bad and on par (or maybe less) than other drug store brands. I picked these up from my local Walmart.

postheadericon Mini Old Navy Haul

So right now OldNavy.com is having a 30% off most things sale. I decided to get just a couple of things since I've been doing a little too much shopping for me and not enough Christmas shopping. I honestly can't help it since my birthday is two days away and the day before thanksgiving!

Anyways...since I am blogging from my tablet and not my computer, the pictures will post at the end.

I purchased this shirt: Women's mixed stripe dolman sleeve top in navy/white. It is on clearance for $7.97 but with 30% off I got it for $5.58.

I also purchased some jeans. They are called: Women's straight leg real deal jeans. These jeans are originally $19 but are selling for $10. I almost purchased more than one pair but I forgot how ON jeans fit so I decided to just get one pair. I figure if the sale is still on when I get my jeans, I can order more or even if it isn't they are still a great price! They come in three different cuts...diva, flirt, sweetheart. The diva jeans are the slimmest fit but tend to be very low rise. I cannot wear flirt jeans because they hit me at the biggest part of my waist making them impossible to zip. I opted for the sweethearts that sit at the waist. I guess due to the special pricing the 30% could not be taken off the jeans.

Before tax my subtotal was $15.86. With tax of $1.52 and shipping of $7.... which deters me from ordering for old navy!....my total spent was $24.10. Not bad for what can be considered an outfit!

postheadericon CVS Sales

CVS is having some awesome sales this week. I stopped by to get one item and left with more than I anticipated but still only paid $8.16!

Coca cola products were $0.97 last week but dropped down to $0.88 this week. I try to stay away from sodas but $0.88 for a 2 liter was too sweet to pass up.

Since its Halloween I decided to pick up some treats. They had packs of candy for $1.00. Granted its fun sized but you get like 8 in a pack! I purchased one for myself, my mom, and one for my grandmother. They are diabetics so we try to keep candy on hand just in case.

The last item I purchased was a hair care product. If you have never tried the Aussie hair brand, you just don't know what you're missing! I use to love the commercial, "add some roo to your doo.". Lol. Anyways.. I adore the 3 minute miracle conditioner. It is soooo moisturizing! Now usually I can find this stuff for $4.99. Granted that's still good but why pay more when you can pay less? Lol. CVS had some Aussie products in sale for $2.99. There was also a coupon in store for $1.00 off. This brought the conditioner down to $1.99. Can't beat that for good products. I think I might go back and at least pick up a couple of coupons for later use.

What have you hauled lately?
Thanks for reading!!!!

postheadericon H&M Friends and Family

H&M is doing something a little different this year. They are allowing employees to give their friends and family their discount for the remainder of the year. That means if you know someone who works there then you just may be able to get 25% off all of your purchases through December 31, 2012!!!

I think it's a nice gift to give to your friends/family... Especially with holidays just around the corner!

Basically it looks like a gift card. On the front is the red H&M logo with the word family in the lower right corner. On the back there is a spot for the recipients name and the employees name/info.

I won't show the back but I will take a post a pic of the front of the card. Here's to discounts!!!

postheadericon Tokidoki Makeup Brushes/Possible Giveaway

I fell in complete and absolute love with the Tokidoki line. I was absolutely upset when I found out the line was no longer going to be sold at Sephora.

Now the Eyeshadows require some effort because they seem to go on a tad sheer on me. With a good primer/base they are pretty good but not the best. That's why when I saw they offered brushes, I was a bit hesitant.

The brushes originally ranged from about $28 to $42. I've purchased the 24 karat limited edition brush set, the single angled brush and the three pack of brushes that I'm going to briefly discuss.

In this brush set you get a blending/crease brush, eyeshadow brush, and a eyeliner brush. All three brushes have the head of one of the characters on the handle. That makes the brushes a tad heavy but not overwhelming and a bit difficult to store. Other than that I love each and every one of my tokidoki brushes. They are so soft and work amazingly well.

In the three piece set I tend to use the eyeliner brush for my brows the brushes do come with a plastic guard but they are a tad bit difficult to get back on once you take them off. I gave up trying to get it back on the eyeshadow brush.

So these brushes were originally around $34 but I was able to snag them from sephora for $14! What a steal!!!!!

*******Would anyone like a chance to win this brush set? Brand new never used... I was thinking of having a giveaway... Just let me know in the comments if you would be interest.****************

So without further ado here are pictures...

postheadericon MAC Marilyn Monroe Swatches

postheadericon MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection

Recently MAC released its Marilyn Monroe collection to MAC Pro members. I was so excited for this line to be released but I am honestly let down. Most of the colors look as it it just won't work with my coloring. I will be so glad when MAC decides o make a collection with dark bold colors. A Halloween collection would be nice. But I digress.

Here is what MAC says about the collection:

The fascination goes far beyond her beauty. With a persona as enigmatic as it is warm, Marilyn Monroe has forever captivated the collective consciousness as a brilliant and charming comedienne (Some Like It Hot, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes) or femme fatale with a secret in her heart (Niagara). She is her own work of art, forever the obsession of artists, photographers and filmmakers.

M A C Marilyn Monroe, a colour collection in shades and formulas distinctively Marilyn: Lipsticks in rapturous reds and gleaming Dazzleglass, a dramatic 35 Lash,False Lashes in Extreme Black and Large Eye Shadows in shimmering metallics and diamond tones. Along with Nail Lacquers destined to be a girl’s best friend and Beauty Powder to evoke that flawless MM skin.

The packaging features images from The Black Sitting,the famous series taken by photographer Milton Greene. These black and white photographs reveal Marilyn with an intimacy seldom seen.

Now I can honestly say I like the packaging. MAC kept it simple, classy and timeless! What I do not like in addition to the colors offered is that the collection contains so many permanent/repromotes. Now I for one like repromotes sometimes because it allows people to either restock up on an item or purchased a missed out on item. What I don't like is that almost the entire collection is permanent. I was thinking new colors or more Marilyn inspired names or something.

Needless to say I almost purchased nothing....and the only reason I did was 50% packaging and 50% because I like the colors of the lipsticks. I purchased Pure Zen and Scarlet Ibis lipsticks. A nude and a red/orange color. I will be sure to put swatches up just as soon as I receive my order this Friday.

postheadericon Cosmetics 101

Have you ever purchased cosmetics that didn't live up to its claim? I know I sure have. Too many duds to name. About two years ago I got the notion to start my own cosmetics company. I wanted to specialize in eyeshades that were so pigmented that it could be seen on the darkest of dark shades of people. I went as far as to get a business tax ID and looked at companies that could help me develop the line but I quickly got discouraged at how much money it would take.

I am going to start the process again! I am more excited this time around than I was last time. I plan to do ALOT more researching and developing. I'm going to have to write a list of all the things I will need to do along with the estimated capital needed to start.

If you or anyone you know has ever started a business then any advice would be great! Stay tuned for more to come... I just might have a contest for a brand logo where the winner would get to try some products out!

Can you tell I'm excited just thinking about it!!!!

postheadericon Outfit of The Night

I just wanted to share a quick outfit I wore for girls night. We just went downtown to a local bar for drinks and a little dancing.

I wore a white blazer with black lapels. This was feature in one of my haul post. It is from forever 21 and I purchased it for $20. I bought it some time ago so I don't think it is available. Hopefully they come out with more colors!!!

Underneath that is a tank I purchased from wet seal before they discontinued their plus line which was a total shame! I love the sparkle in the top!!!

For pants I kept it simple and stuck to black skinnies. I am also wearing black sequin flats from target. I wanted to wear heels but since we were going to do some walking around town I decided against it.

Anyways... I hope you enjoyed. Please do comment and don't forget to subscribe! 😊

postheadericon Question For You

I mainly post the things i care about which happen to be mainly haul post. Since i have 47 readers, I not only wanted to take the time to say thank you but to also ask what would you like to see more of? Or what would you like to see?

I also just started another blog that will be about my love for makeup. I am a freelance makeup artist and wanted to showcase some looks as well as give some pointers when possible. I'm still learning so I appreciate zll feedback as well. The link if anyone wants to visit is Makeup By TNicole. Right now there's just a little bit of my makeup story on there but I plan to upload some looks sometime this week.

At the current moment what i want to do with this blog is to continue with hauls but to also upload pics of how I style things. Because I don't get much feedback I rarely upload the looks when I wear an item. If that's something you would like to see then please leave a comment. Also if there is something new you would like to see then leave a comment as well.

Its about hauling time that I did another blog post! And as to not disappoint this will be a haul post. Yay!!!!!

As you can tell by the title I picked up a few things from Forever 21. I wanted so much more but I showed such constraint...well my wish list grew a little but my wallet didn't scream at me! Here's what  purchased:
