Black Friday 2013 Haul !!

Hi Beauts !
So this year, you could technically say was my first official Black Friday. Last year I went to Target around 1in the morning with my friend, and I barely bought anything. So this year, I kinda went a little crazy, but not too bad. I went to Bath and Body Works, Target, Forever 21, and MAC. The place I bought the most was Bath and Body Works, I got 6 body sprays, 2 candles and the VIP bag.

Now, what I liked the most about this Buy 3, Get 3 Free Special was unlimited. Forever Red and Forever Midnight were included in the special only on Black Friday, they normally never are. So I had to get them, they smell so so good. The other four I got, also smell really nice. I really like buying this because you get alot of variety, I go through periods of time where I obsess with one and then move on. But I like these because rather than sticking to just one perfume, I can switch it up and not get tired of the smell.

Ok, so lately I have been loving candles that smell manly...let's take a moment for that to sink in. I like a lot of sweet and fresh smells, but lately those candles that smell like Mens cologne are just heavenly. Flannel and Black Tie are basically in the same family as Mohagany Teakwood. I don't have enough words to describe just how amazing these are.

BBW had a VIP bag, so when you bought about $40 worth of stuff, you can get bag for $20. I believe the total price of this bag is supposed to be $140, but for 20 I think its way worth it . It comes with 4 full sized products, a mini candle and a Forever Red sample. Oh and a loofah ! Everything in this bag is really awesome and the bag is really cute. It would be pretty ideal to give it to someone as a gift, it's not a matching set but it's pretty much everything you need.

I went to Sephora to see what specials they had and to look for the Lorac Pro Palette. They didn't have any specials I liked and that store doesn't carry the Pro Palette, so I just walked out and made my way to MAC. I went with the intentions of buying a lipstick and I'm very happy with my find. It's called Snob and its a beautiful shade of pink. It's a mauvey kind of pink but at the same time has that pale nude, natural lip color look. I love this color and the formulation, it's not too dry.

Forever 21 was the first store I went to, at my mall they were expanding the store so they moved it to another area in the mall. It's now literally the first store you see when enter. They were having a special on scarves, certain ones were $5. I really wanted a simpe scarf that would match with everything but wasn't too thick. I found this one and I really liked it. I thought the gold was a nice touch but wasn't too over powering. Its made of really thin material, so it could be worn in warmer weather.

I went to Target hoping they would have specials on clothing and sure enough they did ! They had 40% off on a good chunk of stuff but not everything. I love their cardigans, they're cute and comfy and they were 40 % off, so I went with a light gray and brown one. I have been dying to buy the oatmeal color but they didn't have it in my size. The long sleeved shirts were $6, so i grabbed this oatmeal and heather gray stripped shirt. Its so yummy and comfy, the material is so soft.
I hope you beauts had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I wanted to take time to thank the people that read my blog. I know my blog isn't big and totally out there, but the few people that do, Thank you for making my dream into reality. Whether its one person or one hundred, we should appreciate the small things as well.

Beauty Box 5 November 2013 !

Hey Beauts !
So, the other day I recieved my November Beauty Box 5 in the mail . I always love when I recieve these, however, this box came without the info card, so I won't know all the details ! But i will say this, I like this box . So normally each box has a bit of a theme and it would say it on the card, but I'm guessing that the theme if this box is more or less, like smelling and looking good ? Maybe even feeling good, relaxation ? This box actually came with 3 full size products, for 12 dollars a month, I think thats pretty awesome.

Secret Clincal Strength

This is one of three full sized products that it came with. I actually like the smell, its smells nice (as deodorant should...?). I have been thinking about trying out a new deodorant, but I'm not super crazy about the idea of using Secret. I used to use Secret when I was in middle school and it was the worst, it gave me a rash. Now I haven't tried this yet, but I am excited to try it and I'm willing to give it a go.

Aveeno Calming Body Wash

I'm a sucker for Aveeno products, I love everything they have. Their products are more on the natural side and are awesome for sensitive skin. So when I saw this, I was pretty excited. This body wash smells amazing ! It has lavender, chamomile and ylang-ylang and just seems like a nice body wash to use before going to bed or when you just want to unwind and relax. This little bottle is 2 ounces, but you could get a pretty good use out of it.

Bella Pierre Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Calm

So at first this eyeshadow threw me off a little because I normally go for more neutral eyeshadows. But I thought maybe I could use it as a eyeliner on the bottom lash. Now the picture makes it look like a bright purple, but its actually a nice shimmery eggplant purple, so its appropriate for daytime. This eyeshadow is a full sized product as well. And if I remember correctly from a previous box, these eyeshadows run for $15.

Nail Polish Remover Wipes

I havent gotten to trying these, because every time I take my nail polish off I always go to my bottle of nail polish remover. But, I do like the idea of these for your purse or traveling. They are acetone free and one wipe says to work on all ten fingers. I like the simplicity and that these are very portable, rather than having to take with you a whole bottle of nail polish remover when you are traveling.

Glacial Clay Mask

This is the third full sized item I recieved. This mask was a fabric type one, and I've never actually tried one until this one. The fabric is infused with Glacial Clay and helps clean out your pores. You're supposed to leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and after you take off the fabric, you massage whats left on your face into your skin. I like how this mask made my skin feel after, it was soft, refreshed and redness free. I normally do enjoy clay mask becausr they clean your pores but also suck up excess oil. Facial masks are always fun, whether it's store bought or homemade. Now I've never seen this exact one in stores, but I have seen this brand and they are, if I'm not mistaken, less than $ 2.

Essie Encrusted Treasures Collection !

Hi Beauts !
So the other day I went to a local salon supply store where I like to buy my nail stuff and I noticed they had the new Essie polishes. This place always has them before any other store where I live. So I'm guessing this line is supposed to be like luxurious liquid diamonds for your nails and it shows. I really like the look of them, they don't really look like your typical glitter nail polish.

Left to Right: Ignite the Night, On a Silver Platter, Belugaria, Lots of Lux and Hors D'oeuvres.

I bought 5 out of 6 of them. The one i didn't buy was Peak of Chic and that was because its a type of glitter Im not crazy about. It looks like that nail polish that is suppose to look "fuzzy", like bars of glitter. The rest of them, i was really drawn to because of the colors and style of glitter.

Ignite the Night
Regular mini sized glitter, nothing extravagant but it's not your typical silver glitter. It has silver and dark gray glitter and would probably look nice over and nail polish.

Lots of Lux

This one is one of my favorites ! It's a really pretty blue color with blue glitter, however this one is textured. It looks like caviar, literally caviar on you nails. Once it dries it has a semi matte look to it.


This nail polish is a lot like Lots of Lux except its a black polish and has pieces of chunky silver glitter. Its really pretty and makes you feel pretty luxurious, in my opinion.

On A Silver Platter

Super gorgeous nail polish, honestly I don't think I have ever seen any like this. It has a gold base to it, but not opaque. It has small and big blue holographic glitter, i think if you build this one up a bit it could be worn on its own.

Hors D'oeuvres

This polish is some what similar to On A Silver Platter, it has a gold glittery base. But, instead it has silver small and chunky glitter. I am actually thinking about using this one for Christmas with China Glaze Salsa.

Now, I know my blog isn't about nail polish, but I can't help it ! I have this love for it . I think these nail polishes are super pretty and a must. Thank you for reading ! Take care Beauts !
