I spent this weekend enjoying myself before I drown in notes for my upcoming 4 midterms next week. Seriously. My instructors have no heart, reading week is not really supposed to be for reading...
I wanted to go on a short road trip somewhere, and I've always wanted to go to The Cheesecake Factory - so Buffalo is where we headed to :)
Here are goodies I picked up!!
There were TWO levels. I was seriously overwhelmed. Happily overwhelmed. Felt bad for my boyfriend who had to wait for me to go through every rack overwhelmed ;) I settled on some lovely printed tops (~$20 each) due to the surplus of solids I have in my closet.
Origins @ Macy's
I personally loathe department stores (other than the beauty GWP events!) but I was pleasantly surprised to find an origins counter there :) I've wanted to try the VitaZing ($35) since MakeupByTiffanyD raved about it but I believe there is only one Origins in Toronto, far far away from me. Will write a blogpost in the future if it's worthy :) The SA also gave me a sample of their new product Plantscription, an anti-aging serum. I love the idea of serums plus I am being paranoid about my visible forehead lines so I can't wait to try it out!
Oh Target, how I can't wait for you to come to Canada! I hope they will carry similar stuff once they come to Canada, especially the Sonia Kashuk line!
I picked up a necklace ($15) made from fabric, chains, and diamonds. They are similar to my AE ones, there's just something so pretty about this combination!
Sonia Kashuk Super Sheer Liquid Tint in Poppy ($10) used it today and I love how natural the colour looks. It's also very easy to blend and it's not sticky at all. Flat top Sonia Kashuk brush ($12), love love love, and the handle is uber love. I'm currently using a similar E.L.F brush but that one is definitely not as soft as this one - I use these flat top brushes for my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer (which I still need to blog/rave about!!). I want everything from the Sonia Kashuk linee :)
A smudge brush I've been looking for foreverrrr at a good price. Sold at Sephora for $24? sold at Target for $2!
VitaFusion MultiVites Gummy ($9), multi-vitamins for adults! I've wanted to start eating multi-vitamins but the tablet is just way too big for me to swallow. So I gave up on it. This makes things so much easier. I can't find these in Canada, let me know if you know of any!
Jewelry @ Aldo, Forever 21
Earrings from Forever 21 were $1.50! I'm going to modify it and take off the brown beads :) The leaf ($6) and owl ring ($10) was actually bought today when I was at Shops at Don Mills in North York so I decided to add it in here. Which brings me to my excitement finding such great shops there! I ate a quick lunch at McEwan Foods that consisted of a fluffy crusted chicken pot pie :) YUM. I want to try everything in there. The selection in that supermarket is AMAZING! I've also ate across at Fabbrica for a friend's birthday and the food is pretty good there too.
Murale was a super shocker for me. I didn't even know it existed this whole time! When I walked in, I instantly had the same feeling when I walked into my first Ulta. *beauty heaven* They carried higher end brands that I would love to try such as Bobbi Brown, Cargo, YSL, Chanel etc. The best part is that they use the SDM Optimum point system. WEE! Guess where I will head to on a 20X point event?? Teehee.
Anthropologie was an amazingggg store. I loved the atmosphere and the interior of that store. Thanks Edwina for blogging about this store! I wouldn't have known about it or Murale :) There's a lot of great pieces in that store but the sale section was packed with people with not much to share, and the prices are through the roof in some cases :( But I would love to go there again and again nonetheless :)
I had a fun shopping filled weekend but it's back to reality for me! Hope everyone has a great Family Day/President's Day tomorrow! It's snowing oodles where I am right now. Maybe this will truly be a Family Day ;)
Thanks for dropping by! xoxo
