Happy Sunday everyone!!
Yesterday the BF and I went to the mall,
I ended up picking up a few things.

At Charlotte Ruse I found a pair of sequined shorts for $4.99!!!
There a bit big but I can take them in,
And for $4.99 I could afford to alter them a bit.

Hot Topics Clearance section for makeup is AWESOME!!
I found this nail polish set for .98.
And this little monster thing is actually an eye shadow palette.
It's very knock off tokidoki.
But without the price tag at $1.98!!

Close up for the nail polishes and outside of the palette.
Close up of the eye shadows themselves.
Theres even a little compartment under the eye shadows like the tokidoki ones!!
How strange??
Swatches of the eye shadows.
They didn't have names.
But they seem to be a decent qaulity.
We'll see when I use them.
Nails of the day!!
I used my new Hot Topic nail polish.
It's a decent polish,
It's opaque in two coats,
And drys fairly fast.

Face of the day using Wet n Wild Color Icon Trio in Knock On Wood.
As well as the MAC Holiday 08 palette in Intriguing Scarlet: 6 Warm Eyes.
Colors:: Sweet Joy, And Real Dream.
Close up.
What do you think??
Does anyone remember this purse from my lust list a few weeks ago??
Well I ordered it!!
And got it on Friday afternoon.
I'm in love with it.
It's the perfect size for summer!!
I can fit all my summer time needs in it no problem!!

Hope you enjoyed!!

Knock On Wood
I'm Getting Sunburned
And Spoiled Brat

The Wet n Wild Color Icon Blusher in Mellow Wine

And for 3 Profusion Lipglosses

First up is Sweet As Candy::

With Flash.
With Flash.
Sweet As Candy reminds me of Cosmpolitain Ice Cream.
It's very wearable for everyday looks.
Knock On Wood.
With Flash.
With Flash.
Knock On Wood is probly going to be the look I use for Valentines day.
It's got that sultry mystrious feel to it.

I'm Getting Sunburned.
With Flash.
With Flash.
I'm Getting Sunburned is more of a going out palette.
Because it's got a lot more glitter then the rest.
Spoiled Brat.
With Flash.
With Flash.
Spoiled Brat is def. for an edgyer look.
All in all these shadows are a good buy for a great price.
Quaility is very high for a drug store brand.
Packaging is simple yet useful.

Wet n Wild Blusher in Mellow Wine.
With Flash.
I got this blusher to use as a contour blush.
I havn't used it as that yet.
But it is very smooth and blendable.
As well as buildable.

ProFusion Lipglosses in 04, 09, 06
With Flash.
I bough these lipglosses on a whim,
They were super cheap.
For a buck each.

I was very surprised with these.
They are a very good product actually.
The gloss doesn't have that weird plastic smell some cheapo lipglosses do.
It isn't sticky at all.
It stays put for awhile.
And the color pay off is great as well.

All in all I'd buy all of these products agian.
Thank you for reading!!

Fashion Replay.

 A few months ago I made a pledge to myself,
To no longer buy cloths//shoes//etc. unless it was thrifted,
This as late Spring early Summer,
And I have stuck to this pretty much.

But I've realized that I need to focus better,
Not only on what I want to get,
But also how much I get.

I moved into a new apartment almost 3 months ago,
And still have yet to move ALL OF MY WARDROBE IN!!
I still have to go through everything,
Let go of somethings.
And realize what I actually need instead of what I want at that moment.

So I'm repledging this.
And I'm putting myself on a spending allowance for each month.
I'm not sure how much it will be yet.
But it won't be over $75.00 I don't think.

Here's the pledge made up by the lovely Bella Q of The Citizwn Rose Bud. ::::
I'm extending this pledge out to all of my readers,
Let me know if you are taking the pledge in the comments.
And spread the word!!

Happy Friday everyone!!


I resolve to purchase items that are thrifted, swapped or handed down. My aim is to limit my consumption, and in doing so I intend to shop from second-hand sources first. I pledge to support business that commits to sustainable and smart design. I look first for upcycled, recycled, and pre-loved goods. I barter and swap when possible, and shop consignment, thrift-stores and flea markets when probable. I pledge to shop secondhand because I put the planet first.

Barnes& Noble && Borders Haul plus Early V-Day NOTD

From Borders::
Two Hello Kitty Notebooks,
A organizer notebook,
And a Cupcake Mug.

Brom Barnes & Noble::
Gluten Free Everyday Cookbook,
And Hello Kitty Letter Set.
The mugs box,
Look at how cute the smiling cupcakes are!!
My boy friend saw it and knew it was me 100%!!

The mug is painted with smiling Cupcakes!!
I'm such a sucker for Paperchase company,
And anything with cupcakes on it!!
This is what was in the letter set from Barnes & Noble,
A heart shaped eraser,
A pink Hello Kitty Pencil,
A pink Hello Kitty Pencil Sharper,
And Hello Kitty paper and envelopes.

I know it's only the middle of January,
But stores already have there Valentines day stuff out,
So I thought I'd do an early Valentines Day NOTD.
Here it is::

China Glaze Phat Santa as base [[ 2 coats ]]
Konad Image Plate in m59

Hard Candy Hypnotic on the tips
Sassi Nail Art Polish underneath Hynotic.
