RECENT SEPHORA AND ULTA BUYS + THE THINGS I WENT BACK FOR

recent-sephora-ulta-buys

So I’ve been slacking lately, but for very good reason. In a matter of a month (actually a little less than that) I accepted a new job, put in my two-weeks notice (which happened to actually be one week), packed up and moved from Maryland the Texas. So, needless to say, it’s been a stressful few weeks and I hadn’t had time to buy much let alone blog about it.

RECENT BEAUTY BUYS

Recent_Beauty_Buys

It’s been a while since I have posted here, but I’m back! I’ve been on a bit of a spending fast (which went pretty terribly) so I was trying my hardest not to purchase much in the month of September. I recently went to one of my favorite stores (Sephora), to pick up some things and I also recently got some orders in from Amazon. Perfect timing for a post!

I know you see the Fenty Beauty products front and center so lets start there! Because I hate going into stores when they are super packed, I waited until the week after the Fenty Beauty launch to stop in Sephora and pick up somethings that I saw in the 100+ tutorials I watched beforehand. Just my luck however, the darker shades were sold out at two locations but I was still able to get IQ matched so when the foundation is restocked, I will be able to purchase. I did get a sample and let me tell you… best foundation I have EVER used… EVER! I will talk more about it when I am able to purchase it and wear it more often, but all I can say is it really does look like skin.

THE BODY SHOP ETHIOPIAN HONEY MASK

Ok, so let’s talk about this mask!

I purchased this sample sized mask sometime in June or July when I was in NJ/NY along with a few other sample sized masks The Body Shop was offering. I have soooo many masks so a lot of them tend to sit until I want want to try something new or my skin is having a fit and I need something really specific.

CURRENT BEAUTY FAVS

 

For the past year I have been really focused on improving my skin, getting a regimen down and also finding products that will be staples in my collection. I’m not really the type of person that likes to use A LOT of different products, mainly because I breakout in hives really easy so I don’t want to test a lot of things at once and not know exactly what’s causing me to breakout. I try to test a product for at least 6 months before I say if I love it or hate it. A lot of the products above I’ve been using for moooonths and they haven’t let me down so I wanted to share with you all some of my current beauty favorites and products I will always reach for!

This is going to be a long one friends, so grab a snack… or two!

DRIVE THRUS AND BODEGAS

My only thought after this Chipotle run was that Maryland could really benefit from drive-thrus and bodegas. Super random I know… anyways, people are always asking me about this shirt I’m wearing here. I’m a late 80s baby and the first wave of kids that got to experience the greatness that was AOL, so when I saw it I knew I had to have it. If you don’t know what a/s/l means then you’re not old enough to be friends.

TO: NEW YORK , WITH LOVE…

The other day I took a little trip to New York to walk around, get a greater feel of the city and clear my mind. I took a few pictures on my mini trip and wanted to share! It was so dreary in New York, which made me a bit sad but I was still happy to be there just walking around, studying what people were wearing, observing and shopping.
