Confession #19: I’m an impulse buyer…I’m not proud. Part 1

Hi everyone!

Since I had taken a pretty huge break from blogging, I actually purchased quite a bit of product. I decided I should probably do a Haul since I plan on reviewing a few of things in the very near future! I would love to hear your comments on the products I’ve purchased or even request a review from any of the products  you may be interested in purchasing!

So I’m writing this post at school and I don’t have all of my picture with me, I ‘m going to make this a two part haul, just because I can.

This is probably on of my favorite recent purchases. This lotion is seriously one of addictions! I’ve been using it since my freshman year of high school and have never gotten tired of it. It has an amazing relaxing scent hence “night time” and it moisturizes better then a lot of other lotion which I’m guessing is because its baby lotion. Anyways since I’m on a budget I decided to try the generic brand of this lotion ( Johnson & Johnson makes the actual lotion) and it is actually the same! It smells and feels just the way I’m used to which made me very happy! I recommend this lotion to anyone, I always put it on when I’m having trouble sleeping or when I need to stay relaxed (aka I have a big test) and It works wonders.

Equate “Night Time” Baby Lotion: $4.95

I know this is a super quick haul and probably leaves a little to be desired, but I will be doing a review on these products within a few weeks!

Thanks for reading dolls!

Confession #16: I got the Beauty Blogger Tag! Does this make me official?

Hi Dolls!

So I received the Beauty Blogger Tag from Beauty4Free2U, Check her out, her blog is amazing and she seems like a darling!

This tag was originally created by The Beau Bow.

Here are the official rules for the Beauty Blogger Tag:

  1. State the Tag was created by The Beau Bow
  2. Tag some more beauty blogger
  3. Title it with Beauty Blogger Tag

Name a beauty routine you rarely do?

-I rarely curl my eyelashes. Mine have a pretty natural curl to them, so the few times I have tried to curl them, it just looks awkward, and to be honest I am not even sure of the correct way to go about using an eyelash curler.
Is washing your makeup brushes something you do regularly?

-Washing my makeup brushes has become a once a week ritual for me. I wash my brushes every Wednesday afternoon while I give myself a facial.
How long will you last with chipped nail varnish?

-I can not stand chipped nails, since I wear overlay more often than not, I often have to put up with chipped nails for a couple of days before I can get them done, but it will be literally all I can focus on until they are back to looking proper.
How long do you put off buying.replacing a beauty or nail polish product even if you need it (i.e.-top coat, foundation,etc.)?

-I don’t put off buying or replacing product. I have this amazing “gift” where even if I walk into a store and completely forget my entire grocery list, I somehow remember what I am running out of or what I wanted to try.
What is your worst beauty habit?

-I honestly have so many horrible beauty habits! I’ll go with my top two, I sometimes fall asleep with my makeup on, which is seriously so bad for your face! I also forget to wash my face a lot, I use cleansing wipes but I don’t give a good scrub as often as I should.
Name something non-beauty related that you put off all the time.

– One Word. HOMEWORK.
When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready until the last minute or not?

-I definitely give myself enough time to get ready. I hate showing up to places late but I can’t show up if I’m not put together. So the amount of time I take depends on what I’m wearing and how I’m doing my hair and makeup.
Can you commit to spending bans?

– That is a huge no! I’m an impluse buyer when it comes to EVERYTHING! The only way I can commit is to not go into stores, and even then I have a hard time because of online shopping, but I have gotten a lot better than I used to be, I do believe I have college to thank for that.
How organized are your makeup and nail polish collections?

-My makeup collection is beautifully organized, it makes my heart sing because it is so lovely! My nail polish on the other hand is in a huge makeup case, and just kind of tossed in there.

What is the longest time you’ve gone without writing a blog post?

– This is so bad, but 2 months! The stresses of college life definitely got the best of me, but I am BACK!

I hope you all enjoyed reading my answers to the tag!

And now for the fun part!!

Confession #15: I have an obbsession with my vanity

Hi dolls!

So I haven’t written anything in literally 2 months. This is not OK at all! I’ve been back at school for a little bit and now that I don’t feel like I’m going to die from the stress I feel like I will be able to get back into my groove! I have so many posts in draft that it isn’t funny, so be warned you will be seeing this face pop up a lot!

Anyways, I moved into my new apartment, which I absolutely LOVE! My roommates are amazing, and so is the actual apartment. I’m thinking about doing a room tour soon, just so you can see how amazing it really is! In my new room my absolute favorite feature is my vanity! As I watched my makeup collection grow I became obsessed with having a cute and organized Vanity, and while mine may not look as cute as the one I’ve seen on pinterest. I absolutely LOVE it!

So here is a little gallery.

  • The wire organizing drawers came from IKEA,you can find it here. It was a steal at $14.99.
  • The wire organizing baskets came from IKEA as well you can find them here. They were $2.99 for a set of two.
  • The drawer organizers came from Walmart and were $4.99 for an 8 piece set. I can’t find the link but they are awesome!
  • The vanity was a hand me down from a friend, which I absolutely adore!

I hope you all enjoy my “comeback” post.
