Sephora VIB Sale Haul!

First of all, let’s ignore the fact that I’ve been missing for three months. That’s a story for another post. I wanted to show you guys the things I got from the Sephora VIB sale! I’m actually super pleased with everything I managed to grab, despite some of the things I had my eye on selling out (ie: the four pack of Clarisonic brush heads for $80… til next time I guess 😢). We all know that ya girl LOVES a good deal, and I can confidently say that I got my money’s worth this time around! I saved $45 on everything, which is pretty good considering I got a lot of things.

Also, something that I learned this time around is that the Sephora app and website are not that accurate when it comes to stock in store.

  1. Some things I wanted on the app said that no store in my area had the item in stock. Which was a lie because I went to two different stores on two different occasions, and they still had the items.
  2. Also, I found an item in store that had the “online only” label on it on the app/website

Trust no one!!! Jokes. Don’t go to those extremes. But from my experience, I’m probably just going to do my VIB sale shopping in store from now on.

H&M Haul

By now, you’re probably asking yourself if H&M is the only place I shop at. And the answer is: pretty much. I dislike shopping and I love saving money, so since I already work at H&M, I can shop every time I go to work and I get a discount too! Anyways, here are some things I’ve picked up recently

Purpose Tour Hoodie

We recently got a bunch of Purpose tour merch and for some reason, I really liked and wanted this hoodie. I love hoodies. Catch me in them at home all the time. Since the Purpose tour merch is only in the mens section, this fits a bit bigger, but I don’t mind because I love that it’s a bit oversized. Everyone makes fun of me for it, but I don’t care, I love this hoodie!

Pile Lined Denim Jacket

[This was sold out online but I’m sure you can find something similar at any store]

I have always loved the look of sheepskin lined denim jackets. Idk I think I just like sheepskin lined anything… Which is why I got this jacket (Although it obviously isn’t lined with real sheepskin). I won’t be able to wear this any time soon with the weather we’ve been having, but this will be a nice spring jacket. The sleeves aren’t lined, but the rest of the jacket is, so it’s the perfect balance of warmth and breathability. Just four more months until I can wear this…. Four… long… months.

Wool-blend Bomber Jacket

Ever since we got this in a couple month ago, I’ve been lusting over it. I love bomber jacket silhouettes and this jacket is different because it’s made of a wool-blend rather than the typical satin-like bomber jackets that are everywhere these days. I also like that the bottom of the jacket isn’t cuffed, so if I wear a shirt that happens to be longer than this jacket, I won’t look like an awkward mushroom, and the shirt won’t gather all weird around my waist. If you can visualize what I’m talking about. Also the lining is the prettiest light, powdery blue color. Which is pointless because no one ever sees the lining but oh well.

Deep V shirt

2016-12-28 02.31.13 1.jpg

I bought this shirt because I wanted to wear my strappy bralette under it (Check out my VS bralette haul if you haven’t already). Since it’s a deeper V, it would show off the straps perfectly. However, the shirt is quite fitted and I got it in a 2 (I feel like I could have and should have sized up), so wearing this shirt with a bralette means that my boobs will definitely disappear.. But oh well! It’s still a nice shirt and if you’ve watched my vlogs, you would see that I have been wearing this shirt frequently since I got it.

And that’s it! Hope you guys enjoyed 🙂 I really need to find a better way to take pictures. A cellphone tripod maybe? Idk.

What I Got For Christmas! 🎁

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone was able to enjoy the holidays with the ones they love! To get me back into the swing of things here, I thought I would show you all the things I received this year! Also, I’ve been thinking a lot about how different Christmas is when you’re a kid vs. when you’re a bit older. I remember when I was younger, it seemed like it took forever for it to be christmas. My lists were very long and all I wanted to do was rip open presents. Now that I’m older, it seems like Christmas sneaks up on me every year. Instead of wanting to receive tons of gifts, I love giving meaningful things to others. Maybe it’s just because our concept of time changes as we get older. Idk. But anyways! Here’s what I got for Christmas!

  • Too Faced Natural Matte Palette from my friend Mark

VS Bralette Haul

I know I’ve definitely written about this before but I. Love. Bralettes. I hate wearing bras so bralettes are perfect for me because I got lil boobs so I don’t need much support. Bralettes are just so comfortable and cute and nice and I’m ranting, so read on.

Victoria’s Secret is having a sale on bralettes and sports bras – everything is 50% off! So I got all these bad boys for $12, which in my opinion is such a steal. VS is pricey but their bralettes are such good quality in comparison to other places. I don’t know when the sale ends, but go and stop by if you’re interested, it won’t last forever! Anyways, these are all the bralettes that I picked. There were so soo many cute ones to choose from and I ended up with four that I am so happy with.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetThese ones are just your typical bralette. They are all the same, just in different colours. White, red and a grey-ish purple. The lace is a bit more sturdy, so I don’t think they will fall apart in the wash. Plus, your nips don’t show through the lace. I was mindblown in the change room because they were pretty thin, but still cover everything.

This one is my favourite. The cups are made of mesh and crocheted lace. My favourite part about this is the straps at the front because I love the way they look under a low cut shirt. I guess I won’t be wearing low cut shirts any time soon during the winter but you know I’ll be wearing this alll the time when it gets warmer.

That’s all for today! All the bralettes I bought can be found here. Hope you all have a good rest of your night (or day)

HUGE H&M Beauty Haul & First Impressions!

Hey guys! About two weeks ago, I was informed that I was the winner of a contest for finishing online training modules at work, and my prize was a whole bunch of H&M Beauty items (Oh yeah I work at H&M lol surprise!!). I’ve never really used anything from their beauty line, besides owning some brushes and a couple nail polishes, so I was pretty excited and didn’t really know what to expect. I don’t know if anyone else is like this, but I really don’t have high expectations for the makeup lines that clothing giants put out *cough cough Forever 21 wyd*, and you can’t knock it til you try it right? Anyways if you’re interested in seeing what I got then keep reading!

💖, B

P.S. I should also mention that all my thoughts and impressions are 100% my own! I’m not personally bashing or attacking the company when I talk about something I don’t like and I’m also not being paid to say anything nice about the things I do like! (then again I feel like all of this is a given since I don’t have a hug presence on here LOL but just thought I’d throw it out there)

WalMart, Sephora and H&M Haul

Hey yall! I know I’ve been M.I.A for the past week but I have been busy shopping. Seriously. I’ve never done a haul post before so I figured I’d do one now of all the things I’ve bought over the past week or so. I’ve also tried most of the products out already so I’ll also include a mini review (and if you want to see a full review on any of the products then let me know, although I most likely will be writing some). Enjoy!

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – 675 Infatuation

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I believe this colour is part of their new shades for the collection, I could be wrong though. I picked this up because you all know I love a nice dramatic dark lip and I don’t have a deep berry shade yet so I figured why not. As far as the actual product itself… Meh.

CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipstick – 577 Spiced Latte

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I thought the idea of applying the colour, then applying a moisturizing and shiny top coat was a cool idea. Plus it claimed to last 24 hours which caught my attention. I obviously didnt wear it for 24 hours but I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that the colour really did last all day, only having to reapply the top coat. Only downside is that I personally don’t like the way the colour looks on it’s own, so if I ever lost the topcoat, I probably wouldn’t ever use the actual lipstick again.

Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow – 002 Hourglass Beige

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

This caught my eye because I thought it would be a really pretty highlight shade. It’s very light (it is an iridescent finish) so I use it as a “base” for my actual highlight for an extra pop of glow. I haven’t used it as a shadow yet but I imagine it would also look amazing.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – 25 Medium

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I wanted to try out a new concealer and I had only heard good things about this concealer, which is why I picked it up. Plus I love all the products I’ve tried from the Fit Me line and this was no exception. So creamy, really easy to blend and is really good for highlighting!

essence All About Matt! Compact Powder

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I have no idea why they spelled “matte” the way they did. I also don’t know why I bought this lol. I mean I really don’t need a mattifying powder right now. I also keep forgetting to use this and test it out so… But I really like the simplistic packaging and the design on the powder haha

Clarisonic head

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Pretty standard, I just really needed a new brush head for my Clarisonic. I got the sensitive skin one.

Too Faced Melted Matte liquid lipstick – Drop Dead Red

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Yes. I did it. I bought it. I won’t lie though, I think the formula for this colour may be different than Cool Girl? I don’t know. I’ve only wore it once and I wore it with some lip chap underneath so maybe it altered the way it stayed on my lips, but I accidentally brushed my finger on my lip and it smeared the product (which is something that I’ve never experienced with Cool Girl) and at the end of the day it just looks like a mess. LOL maybe next time I try it, I’ll like it better (I mean I better if I paid $25 for it…)

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops – Sunlight

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

YOU. GUYS. I saved the best product for last. JGJFGAJGULARY. I literally screamed when I swatched this on my hand. This seriously looks like liquid metal (but if you’ve watched videos on this, then you already knew that). If you loove love love strobing and having a glow that reaches to outer space GIRL YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE. I plan on doing a full review on this later on in life but for now just know that I love this. I can’t stop looking at it!

H&M Ribbed Body Suit

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I already have a black version of this same body suit and I wanted it in white. Honestly if you look at my closet, you will notice that I usually have a black and white version of the same shirt. I clearly love colour.

H&M Long Tank

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

I’m sorry, I hate shopping for clothes and that reflects in how bad I am at describing what an article of clothing is. But yall get the idea. This looks like a long dress from the front, but there are very deep slits in the sides which can hide shorts. Or you can wear it with pants I guess. I don’t know what I’m saying.

And that concludes my haul! Hope you enjoyed looking at all my latest purchases, let me know if you’ve picked up something lately that you’ve been loving. As always, thanks for taking the time out to read this and see ya around.

💖, B
